    A special commission established under the Mardin Governor’s Office has cancelled a decision to transfer Syriac churches and monasteries to Turkey’s Religious Affairs Directorate, the Birgün daily reported on Wednesday. Some of the assets, including churches in Mardin province that were owned by the Syriac community, were seized by the Treasury and were planned to be transferred to the Religious Affairs Directorate. Renate Sommer, a member of the European Parliament from the Christian Democratic Union, part of the European People’s Party, also harshly criticized the decision and said the Syriacs were at risk of being wiped out in Turkey. The...

    Guns Hidden from the Government and Confiscated in Wales The exemplar for restrictive firearms regulation in the United States has been England and Wales. Some have argued that it was NAZI Germany, but though the 1968 Gun Control Act borrowed heavily from NAZI law, the country and laws that most have referred to has been England. Wales shares the same laws and Supreme Court as England. Before the British passed their own restrictive firearms laws, the most restrictive law in the Anglosphere was the one passed in New York City, the infamous Sullivan law of 1911. The first real...

    Authorities in Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, have begun confiscating private dwellings to ease a housing shortage one that has been acutely exacerbated by Chancellor Angela Merkels decision to allow more than two million migrants into the country in recent years. City officials have been seizing commercial properties and converting them into migrant shelters since late 2015, when Merkel opened German borders to hundreds of thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Now, however, the city is expropriating residential property units owned by private citizens. In an unprecedented move, Hamburg authorities recently confiscated six residential...

    A North Carolina high school has confiscated pre-ordered yearbooks after school officials and district administrators deemed a student's "build that wall" senior quote "inappropriate." Richmond Early College High School allowed graduating students to put a quote of their choice under their yearbook picture. One student chose their senior quote to be "Build that wall," crediting Donald Trump for the statement. Only after the yearbook was published and distributed to students did Principal Tonya Waddell deem several senior quotes inappropriate, including Trump's oft-repeated campaign promise to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. At that point, 22 yearbooks had been pre-ordered,...

    To Venezuelan socialists, observed Loyola University Maryland economics professor Thomas DiLorenzo, nothing says Merry Christmas more than armed government goons showing up at your business and ordering you around. That is, in fact, precisely what is happening in that oil-rich but increasingly poverty-stricken nation. Having driven his country into penury and hyperinflation by continuing the policies of late president Hugo Chavez, President Nicolas Maduro is now forcing stores to have Christmas sales they cannot afford and even confiscating millions of toys from their distributor so Maduro can play Santa Claus by handing them out to poor children.

It had to be some kind of complaint, police press officer Edward Ramirez said.

    President Obama spoke at a town hall moderated by PBS Wednesday night while still in Elkhart, Indiana. The subject of gun control came up and the president assured that neither he nor any other Democrat is trying to take away America's guns. An audience member stood up and posed the following question: "Why do you and Hillary want to control and restrict and limit gun manufacturers, gun owners and responsible use of guns and ammunition to the rest of us -- the good guys -- instead of holding the bad guys accountable for their actions?" The man continued, using Obama's...

    Guillermo Espinoza's efforts to retrieve $19,894 seized by Arkansas State Police were brought to an abrupt halt by Judge Chris Williams. State prosecutors asked that the money be returned to Espinoza since no criminal charges were being pursued against him. Williams rejected this request on the grounds that Espinoza had missed the 10-day deadline for filing the papers to initiate restitution. As Williams sees it, "the rules on civil forfeiture are clearly spelled out in statute. Whether or not Mr. Espinoza was or wasn't engaged in any illegal activity is irrelevant. Arkansas law gives the government the right to seize...

    A reprise on a March 2013 interview of John Lott and his discussion with Obama on gun control. "I don't believe people should be able to own guns," Obama told Lott one day at the University of Chicago Law School. Lott: "Barack Obama is the most anti-gun president ever. That claim is based not on my own interactions with him back in the 1990's but on his own public record over many years."

    It used to be that the gun grabbers desperately attempted to keep a thin veneer of plausible deniability on their ultimate goal of Confiscation. After all, you can’t very well sucker people into the government controlling their private property with Intergalactic Background Checks and registration if it’s known that those are but a pretext for confiscation later on. But now out of frustration at the lack of ‘progress’ in destroying out rights they have dropped the mask and are now calling for full on repeal of the second amendment, gun bans and outright confiscation. To be sure they still try...

    Members of the Lexington Militia, Massachusetts Colony, lined up in formation on the town green and waited. When the British Regulars marched into town and saw them they rushed over and squared off facing them, ready for a fight. No one knows who fired the first shot. It was the beginning of a very long day, the first day of our American Revolution, April 19, 1775. To what extent revolution is in the air today is a matter of perspective. But the parallel here, with the possibility of armed clashes, cannot be missed. Resistance to the gun registration laws of...
