    If George W. Bush had gone back to sleep after having been notified that four Americans had been killed in an attack on a U.S. Embassy; created a fraudulent excuse of an obscure video as the culprit; and then flown off to a fund raiser in Las Vegas (of all places),... we would have had the leftist politicians and media in this country demanding his impeachment or his head on a pike at the gates of the city! It is clear to me and should be to any other sane American who loves their country that this man has violated...
  • Appeals court to consider making it easier to carry handguns in Maryland

    The Washington Post ^ | 23 October, 2012 | Ann E. Marimow
    A federal appeals court on Wednesday will consider whether to make it easier for Maryland residents to publicly carry handguns, one of many ongoing legal challenges to gun restrictions throughout the nation. If the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, in Richmond, upholds a lower court decision, the Maryland State Police anticipate that thousands of additional residents would qualify for permits to carry loaded firearms in public places from Silver Spring to Baltimore. At issue is the state’s current requirement that residents provide a “good and substantial reason” to the state police for carrying a handgun. In March,...

    It’s generally hard to pinpoint the moment when a politician self-destructs — the “Dean scream” moments are few and far between. Campaigns tend to fall apart as part of a cascade of mistakes, where the number of things going wrong simply becomes insurmountable. Barack Obama didn’t have a “Dean scream.”If anything, future pundits will look back to Mitt Romney’s commanding performance at the first presidential debate in Denver as the beginning of the end of Obama’s presidency, but perhaps a response to a question at the second debate at Hofstra put the final nail in Obama’s electoral coffin.When asked what...

    State Rep. Mickey Guillory urges voters to review upcoming Louisiana state constitutional amendments that will be on the Nov. 6 ballot before they go to the polls this election day. Guillory – who was invited to speak to the Kiwanis Club on Thursday – focused on Amendment N. 2 on the ballot. He said the proposed bill is a “controversial” gun control bill. “There area lot of pros and cons that go with this bill,” Guillory said. “The District Attorneys Association – who came before the Criminal Justice Committee – their position on this is that they were neutral, which...

    Private Property Rights - A basic Premise Of America's Constitution Tired of having the fruits of their labors confiscated by an overpowering British government, America's Founders declared themselves free and independent. Most American schoolchildren can recite their claim that ". all men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights ... to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Less familiar, however, are these lines from their Declaration of Independence: "He ( King George III ) has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance .......
  • Native Born vs. Natural Born (vanity)

    I visited the Constitution Center in Philadelphia on Wednesday. While on the tour, one of the staff members came up and asked me if I wanted to be President. I said that I was ineligible, since my mother was naturalized after I was born. He argued that since I was born here that I was born here that I was natural. We went back and forth; he not knowing the difference between native born and natural born and I refusing to back down. I plan to write the head and tell him that their staff needs to be a) better...

    Andrew McCarthy is one of our most percipient commentators on law and on Islam, writing with a clarity and knack for grasping the essential that are a joy, and an education, to behold. In his PJM column today, both aspects of his expertise are on display. The column is called “It’s Not Just Obama’s Lies — It’s the Premise of Obama’s Lies,” [1] and it takes off from Candy Crowley’s effort in Tuesday’s debate to save face for Obama over the Libyan disaster. We all know now that that attack, which left an American ambassador and three other Americans...

    In two weeks the open carry law takes effect. Gun-training classes have been filling up and in some cases doubling their normal size. One Bixby Police Officer says more education is needed, even for law enforcement. "This is a shift in culture,” said Bixby Police Officer Michael Konshak. “Now we're going to have guns out in the open." Konshak has been in law enforcement nearly 22 years. He's a firearm instructor certified by the Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training. Konshak is worried there hasn't been enough talk about this law. "I don't have any fear,” he told FOX23....

    On November 6th the people of Michigan will go to polls and vote whether to enshrine collective bargaining in the state constitution or allow Michigan’s legislature to retain control of its state. The simple fact is that Proposition 2 will give Big Labor free reign over a range of issues and will allow them to essentially veto anything they don’t like. According the Mackinac Institute, Proposition 2 could potentially cost the taxpayers of Michigan billions in savings. Current laws that could be affected include: Health insurance premium sharing. Recent legislation protects taxpayers from paying lavish government employee health insurance premiums....

    EAU CLAIRE, Wisc. (WEAU) - Gun rights have become a hot topic in this year's presidential race, with the two candidates squaring off on gun issues during the crucial debates. Both President Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney acknowledged the need to uphold the Second Amendment, but also to regulate guns, in Tuesday's debate. "Part of it is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced, but part of it is also looking at other sources of the violence," Obama said. "I'm not in favor of new pieces of legislation on - on guns and - and taking...

If Ms. Geller's name sounds familiar, it is because she has been at the forefront of championing the cause of democracy, freedom, liberty, and justice through her role...

    Floridians’ Property Rights May Get a Reprieve. When it had a chance to uphold property rights, the Florida Supreme Court got it wrong. Will the U.S. Supreme Court now get it right? The question arose last Friday when the nation’s highest court – during the first week of its 2012-13 term — agreed to hear an appeal of the Florida court’s misguided decision. The Koontz family merely wanted to exercise their rights as property owners, to develop the family’s land in legal and responsible ways. But regulators saw a chance to pounce and make all kinds of costly, unrelated, outrageous...

    It was one of those little stories that most people miss, even more so when it is released during a heated presidential election. But it is one that is critically important because it represents an unprecedented power grab by the one profession that has arguably done more damage to America than any other. If Americans don't demand an end to this nonsense, we have no one to blame but ourselves. The details of the story are both simple and infuriating: a New York appeals court in has ruled that a former high school athlete shot in 2003 can sue --...

    Every year Gallup surveys the American public for their opinion on things like gun issues. In 2011 Americans voiced an all-time high approval rating in support of the Second Amendment. The amount of Americans that favor a ban on handguns sits at a paltry 26 percent. A majority of Americans are also against banning so called ‘assault weapons,’ a bogeyman frequently trotted out by anti-gunners attempting frighten Main Street America. The strong majority (60 percent) do not support new gun laws; however, they do support active enforcement of the laws we already have on the books. The amount of women...

    Wisconsin school district has ordered a joint public-private school football team to change its logo – in the middle of the season — after a lone parent said the inclusion of a bishop’s hat and cross was a violation of the U.S. Constitution. Martin Lexmond, superintendent of the Shorewood School District, told Fox News that he made the decision to remove the logos after consulting with the school board. “It just didn’t occur to anybody that there might be questions about it,” he said. “A parent last week raised the question asking if this was a violation of separation of...

    Paul Ryan faces Joe Biden in a vice presidential debate Thursday where guns could become one of the many hot topics discussed. The Wisconsin Republican congressman has recently become a lightning rod for attacks from gun grabbers who think the issue is their ticket to thwarting the Romney campaign’s growing momentum in the polls. Consider the local ABC affiliate in Michigan that ambushed Mr. Ryan on Monday. Reporter Terry Camp used his one-on-one time with the GOP vice presidential candidate to ask — twice — whether the country has a gun problem. Mr. Ryan replied that the nation has a...

    Power: Given the president's end-runs around Congress, his shredding of the Constitution and his assault on the authority of the courts, a second term free of electoral restraints may be a frightening prospect. Judge Andrew Napolitano, a Fox News commentator, raised the question on Neil Cavuto's "Your World" show Wednesday. And while it seems fanciful in light of the safeguards built into our democracy and its institutions, it recognizes the threat posed by the president's policies and actions if left unchecked. "I think the president is dangerously close to totalitarianism," Napolitano opined. "A few months ago he was saying, 'The...
