    It turns out that millions of dollars of special-interest cash, the support of the entire party infrastructure, and the endorsement from President Trump were enough to buy Luther Strange second place ***. *** *** Luther Strange, if elected to continue in office, will be a McConnell and K Street hack, no question. But there are several other important points to Roy Moore’s possible election. *** Second, judicial supremacy is the vital issue of our time. In many ways, it supersedes other issues, but that is because it also defines and absorbs almost every domestic issue. And now, with the courts...

    JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri became the latest state to allow residents to carry a concealed weapon without a permit when lawmakers supported the change Wednesday. Tense debate during the legislature's annual veto override session encompassed themes of race and class as lawmakers clashed over whether to override Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of Senate Bill 656. In the days leading up to the session the debate drew national attention, with organizations on both sides of the issues working to influence lawmakers. Another controversial part of the bill is its "stand your ground" provision, which will allow residents to use deadly force...

    Many people have said or written that while Donald Trump supports the Second Amendment, talk is cheap, and we do not have actions to back up the talk.There is some truth in that. Donald Trump does not have a legislative record to show actions to back up his words. But words have meanings. If a nominee is unwilling to give us words in support of the Second Amendment, why should we believe that he will go to bat for us in the legislature, in the executive branch, or in the courts? If the nominee is too concerned with being...

    Full title: Mayor Doomberg: We Must Reinterpret the Constitution in Wake of Boston Bombing. RUSH: You know what Ben Franklin said about this. This is one of my all-time favorite quotes. Benjamin Franklin once said: "People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both." Benjamin Franklin, and that's exactly right. People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.

    Dictator Hugo Chavez and friend of Sean Penn and Oliver Stone was mandated to take a sworn presidential oath before the National Assembly in Caracas, Venezuela this morning due to the specifics of their Constitution and that he won the Oct. election (unfortunately) for another six-year term starting today. However Hugo "smells of sulphur", it is reported, and is out of the country and deathly ill in Havana, Cuba of apparently malignant cancer, so he is not exercising his duties in addition to being absent from the country in the first place.

    Retired Army Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin is warning that Islamic Shariah law already is in the United States, and is forming a cloud over the future of the nation. “There is a threat to this country from Shariah and the Muslim Brotherhood,” noting the Muslim Brotherhood has had a presence in the U.S. since at least 1962. . “People say that Shariah isn’t going to be a threat in the United States. Fifty-three cases in 28 states have been decided by Shariah law at the appellate level,” Boykin said.

    Chicago Police Captain Kevin Navarro was driving a marked police car down the wrong way of a busy street when he collided head-on with a motorcycle last year. The incident just happened to be caught on camera because a group of citizens had been video recording their friend on the motorcycle. And they continued shooting photos and videos of the aftermath, documenting the police SUV in the wrong lane. But by the time a multitude of cops showed up to the scene, they began arresting the citizens with cameras and deleting their footage. The citizens were acquitted and now they...

    TEWKSBURY, Mass. – Russ Caswell, 68, is bewildered: “What country are we in?” He and his wife Pat are ensnared in a Kafkaesque nightmare unfolding in Orwellian language. This town’s police department is conniving with the federal government to circumvent Massachusetts law – which is less permissive than federal law – in order to seize his livelihood and retirement asset. In the lawsuit titled United States of America v. 434 Main Street, Tewksbury, Massachusetts the government is suing an inanimate object, the motel Caswell’s father built in 1955. The U.S. Department of Justice intends to seize it, sell it for...

    NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A man accused of talking about shooting President Obama in 2009 can get his gun collection back, a New Jersey appeals court said in a ruling released Tuesday. John Brek was working as a security guard at Newark Liberty International Airport in October 2009 when he was overheard talking about how easy it would be to shoot the president, who was scheduled to arrive the next day. He also allegedly made racist comments about the president.

    The second half of Iowa's 84th General Assembly is beginning to wind down, and it appears that Iowa firearms owners are going to be left in the cold with nearly everything they had hoped to accomplish this year. A long list of bills was presented to the House of Representatives, but nearly all of them are going to die due to inaction. Many of the bills died before they even saw the light of day. Once introduced in the Iowa House of Representatives, firearms related bills go to the House Public Safety Committee. The Chairman of that Committee is Rep....

    The right to keep and bear arms is enshrined in the Bill of Rights, and this week has been set aside to observe the Treasure State's second amendment rights. Helena Trap Club president Steve Noland says the second amendment is one of the foundations the state of Montana was built on. Noland says it is very important for people to stay active and to join organizations like the National Rifle Association as well as support their activities so that second amendment rights are preserved. Noland noted, "If you look at the history of the wars that we have been involved...

    We as conservatives believe in freedom, liberty, and all the good stuff that the constitution guarantees us as American citizens. As we look at this election field, we catch only a glimpse of just who is attempting to run for president of the United States, our options being Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum. But have you actually looked at everyone trying to run for the coveted oval office? I didn’t, and usually don’t, until yesterday. Austin, another blogger here at BoP, posted a link to the Party for Socialism and Liberation’s website on Twitter last night. Not expecting...

    EDMOND — Dozens of firearm-related bills filed by Oklahoma lawmakers seek to, among other things, expand the state’s open carry laws, expand where guns may be legally kept and expand the scope of the self-defense law. On Feb. 14 the House Judiciary Committee passed House Bill 2988 by Rep. Mike Ritze, R-Broken Arrow. The bill gives legal authority to use deadly force against dangerous individuals at a place of worship. Ritze said the bill was inspired by several recent cases in which violence or threats involved places of worship in the state. In November, Edmond’s Fairview Baptist Church and pastor...

    The successful plaintiff in “Heller 1,” the most important gun case in the last seven decades was interviewed Feb. 11 at the Nation’s Gun Show in Chantilly, Va. “When I go to the Nation’s Gun Show, I usually focus on the antique guns,” said Dick Heller, who in 2003 sued the District of Columbia, when the municipal government of the federal city denied his request to register a gun. In 2008, the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment’s preamble, which discussed the value of a well-equipped militia, did not restrict the right to keep and bear arms. The court...

    Being the number two chief of an ultra-minority party is no fun. So it is no surprise that state Rep. Donna Seidel, D-Wausau, the assistant Assembly Democratic leader, declared herself a candidate in the likely recall election against state Sen. Pam Galloway, R-Wausau. Galloway was first elected in 2010, when she upset then-Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker as part of an epic Republican wave that saw the GOP win large majorities in both the Assembly and State Senate. After last summer's Senate recalls cut the GOP Senate majority from a five-seat margin to a one-seat margin, Democrats have been able...
