    “At issue in the Hiss case”, wrote Whittaker Chambers in his autobiography Witness, “was the question whether this sick society, which we call Western civilization, could in its extremity still cast up a man whose faith in it was so great the he would voluntarily abandon those things which men hold good, including life, to defend it.” In August 1948, Chambers, an editor at Time, identified Alger Hiss, a former assistant to the Secretary of State and former General Secretary of the United Nations, as a fellow member of his underground Communist cell in the 1930s. Hiss was ultimately convicted...

    Charlotte, NC --( Last Thursday, May 24, the Louisiana House will vote on Senate Bill 303, a constitutional amendment protecting the right to keep and bear arms. SB 303 has already passed in the state Senate, two House Committees and has been endorsed by Governor Bobby Jindal. This legislation, which would provide for the country’s strongest “right to keep and bear arms” constitutional amendment, still faces an uphill battle on the House floor and needs your help and support. NRA-ILA Contact Please contact your state Representative TODAY and urge him or her to support SB 303 in its current form...
  • Legislation pushes gun control issues back into spotlight(AZ)(Barf Alert)

    The issue of gun control has once again come to the surface, in light of several bills passed by the state Legislature before the session ended. SB 1467, which would have permitted guns to be carried on the public right-of-ways of school campuses, and SB 1201, the "firearms omnibus" that would allow guns in public buildings, cleared both houses this session. The governor vetoed SB 1467 because it was "poorly written," but has not given any indication on whether she will sign or veto SB 1201. These pieces of legislation prompted fierce debate over where guns should and should not...
  • Expanded and Expanding Self-Defense Rights in NH

    Back in November of 2008 a Kensington, NH man was walking down the street in Portsmouth, NH around midnight when he became alarmed at two suspicious individuals following him. Fearing for his safety, the man opened a knife, spun around, held the knife at his side, and demanded to know what the two people following him wanted. Sounds completely justifiable, doesn’t it? Unfortunately for the fellow involved, the the two individuals were plainclothes NH Liquor Enforcement officers. Immediately after hearing the two people identify themselves as police the man closed the knife. (A risky thing to do, considering a would-be...

    Wisconsin: It’s game time. Brinkmanship. Call it what you want. But today, an elected Governor is forced to deal with a matter soon to hit other states if it hasn’t already. It is more than about unions. It is about America coming to terms with a long standing policy that has crippled states and even nations into bankruptcy: allowing a non-elected body to bypass a legislature and determine how much wealth they receive from a public treasury. Not to blemish his formerly hidden persona, the person who recently stated “We must live within our means” and “debate with a more...
  • Right to Carry in Illinois Looks More Promising Than Ever

    Illinois --( This week members of the brand new 97th General Assembly will convene in the State Capitol in Springfield. New legislators will be bringing with them added support for a Right to Carry law and plan to join the ranks of veteran legislators who have long supported Illinois joining the rest of the nation in becoming a “Carry State”. Also in our favor – the U.S. Supreme Court rulings in Heller vs DC and McDonald vs Chicago, support from the Illinois Sheriff’s Association, 48 states which have Right to Carry concealed laws, Wisconsin which has the Right to Carry...

    The US Constitution has its amendments - the EU constitutional treaty has a number of annexes. This is annex number 7, concerning priviliges and immunities of civil servants working for the EU.

    Garry Wills, a prolific author and Pulitzer prize-winner on America's political and cultural history, has written a guest column, "The day the Enlightenment went out" (Nov. 4), for the venerable New York Times. In his polemic, Wills declares that the reelection of US President George W. Bush was due largely to a big turnout of theologically conservative Christian voters who are not, in his word, "enlightened." As the primary example of this Christian bloc's "unenlightenment," a lamenting Wells cites the creation/evolution issue: "many more Americans believe in the Virgin Birth than in Darwin's theory of evolution."In the second paragraph of...

    In a recent article, Bill Kristol wrote that Howard Dean would paint President Bush as a "constitution amending radical" for supporting a Constitutional Ban on gay marriage. Dean may make the point during the election if Bush comes out for the amendment, but is it reasonable? If you go back to 1960 or even 1980, or 2000, where was the conservative call for a Federal Marriage amendment? It did not exist. Go back to the 1960s, where was the Conservative call for a Constitutional Amendment to ban abortion? It was unheard of. Why now are these so linked with Conservatism?...
