    Several key navigation systems, including autopilot, were knocked out and the plane was unable to return to Sydney as low cloud and rain meant the flight crew couldn't see the runway.... According to the ATSB, the captain accidentally omitted a zero when he was entering the plane's longitude. This meant the navigation system thought the plane was near the South African city of Cape Town - 11,000 kilometres away.

    Army 1st Sgt. Matthew Corrigan learned the hard way that the District of Columbia doesn’t believe it has to abide by the Constitution like the 50 states do. For nearly 40 years, the nation’s capital completely ignored the Second Amendment. (This is the final part of a four-part series. Click here to read part one.) On Feb. 3, 2010, the Metropolitan Police Department also didn’t give much thought to the Fourth Amendment right of Americans to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures. The department’s SWAT team blew through due process and into the home of Sgt. Corrigan without a...

    The D.C. government’s refusal to recognize the full meaning of the Second Amendment has serious consequences for those who put their lives on the line to uphold the Constitution. First Sgt. Matthew Corrigan fought insurgents in Iraq with weapons provided by the U.S. Army, but the nation’s capital threw him in jail for two weeks because he had failed to register three personal guns and some ammunition. The District found the guns after a Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) SWAT team raided Sgt. Corrigan’s home on Feb. 3, 2010. He was arrested without charges, according to court papers, and taken first...

    Army 1st Sergeant Matthew Corrigan learned the hard way that the District of Columbia doesn’t believe it has to abide by the U.S. Constitution like the 50 states do. The city ignores the Fourth Amendment right of Americans to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures. If police can’t be bothered to obtain a search warrant, officers have no problem busting open your front door and taking your property. Most of all, Washington officials do not abide by the full meaning and spirit of the Second Amendment. The District believes it alone can bestow the right to keep arms on...

    While Army 1st Sgt. Matthew Corrigan slept inside his Northwest Washington home, Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) response teams were gathering outside. Dozens of SWAT and explosive-ordnance-disposal officers spent hours preparing a full-scale invasion of the residence in the middle of the snowstorm of the century. It was not an operation to protect the public from a terrorist or to stop a crime in progress. It was to rouse a sleeping man over a secondhand report that he might have an unregistered gun. It all started a bit before midnight on Feb. 2, 2010. Sgt. Corrigan had called the National Veterans...

    The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) seems to have it out for our military. The department is using the city’s pointless firearm registration mandate to harass, arrest and jail servicemen. Army 1st Sergeant Matt Corrigan was woken in the middle of the night, forced out of his home, arrested, had his home ransacked, had his guns seized and was thrown in jail -- where he was lost in the prison system for two weeks -- all because the District refuses to recognize the meaning of the Second Amendment. This week, the city dropped all charges against Sgt. Corrigan, but the damage...

Founded in the 2007-2008 election cycle by Reps. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and Paul Ryan (R-WI), the Young Guns program is a member-driven organization dedicated to electing open-seat and challenger candidates nationwide.

    Could the voters produce a Republican sweep thorough enough to whisk away Dennis Kucinich? It's hard to imagine. It's harder yet to get one's hopes up. But a very credible Republican candidate is running against Cleveland's unrepresentative representative this year, and residents of the 10th Congressional District should be falling all over themselves to elect him. His name is Peter J. Corrigan. He's a businessman with expertise in the financial side of companies and -- of all things -- physics. In other words, he's not stupid.

    The Weekly Standard ^ | Oct 18, 2010 | WILLIAM KRISTOL
    THE WEEKLY STANDARD has obtained the results of a private poll conducted last night in Ohio-10, the Cleveland-area district held for seven terms by Democrat Dennis Kucinich. Kucinich has been widely viewed as safe—even though he fell short of 60 percent of the vote in 2008, and the district has a Cook PVI of only Dem +8. The poll (based on a small but respectable 319 person sample, with a margin of error of 5.6 percent, weighted to eliminate gender bias) shows Kucinich ahead of his opponent, Peter Corrigan, by only 4 percent. The profile of undecided voters suggests they...

    CORRIGAN, TX (KTRE)- A draft environmental impact statement prepared by TxDot is at the heart of the I-69 Trans Texas Corridor debate. Members of the Trinity Neches Sub-Regional Planning Committee want to send TxDot back to the drawing board. Bob Dickens, President of the Trinity Neches Sub-Regional Planning Committee says, "We don'think the law and regulations were followed and we do not think TxDot has taken into consideration the impact of the environment, our wildlife, our water districts, our cities, our school districts, and in essence, our way of life. That's why the Sub-Regional Planning Committee met with the Environmental...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Appellate Judge Carol A. Corrigan, a former prosecutor, was sworn in Wednesday to the California Supreme Court after being confirmed to replace the most conservative justice on the state's highest court. Corrigan, 57, who sits on the 1st District Court of Appeal in San Francisco, is a former trial judge and Alameda County prosecutor who was elevated to the appeals court in 1994 by former Republican Gov. Pete Wilson after changing her voter registration from Democrat to Republican. Corrigan, who graduated from Hastings College of the Law in 1975, was unanimously approved by the Commission on...

    California Supreme Court candidate Carol Corrigan won high praise Friday from a State Bar commission and most lawyers, judges and others commenting on her nomination in advance of next week's confirmation hearing. Corrigan, 57, a state appeals court justice in San Francisco since 1994, was nominated by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger Dec. 9 to succeed Justice Janice Rogers Brown. Brown resigned from the state's high court June 30 to become a federal appeals court judge in Washington, D.C. Corrigan, Schwarzenegger's first Supreme Court nominee, has been described by most legal commentators as a moderate Republican close to the ideological center of...

    The Finest Court in the Nation Hooray for Michigan justice. Among the people recently mentioned as potential U.S. Supreme Court nominees, Maura Corrigan and Robert Young were relatively unknown. But both are noteworthy representatives of what may be the finest court in the nation. For the past six years, the Michigan Supreme Court has been a leader in attempting to restore a proper balance between the judiciary, the legislature and the people. The bloc that constitutes the court's frequent majority--Justices Clifford Taylor, Stephen Markman, Corrigan, Young and, often, Elizabeth Weaver--has consistently refused to substitute its policy preferences for those of...

    Maura Corrigan has again surfaced in the buzz as being on the short list to replace outgoing Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. U.S. News and World Report describes Corrigan as having "just what some Republicans are looking for: practical experience away from the bench and a firm commitment to judicial restraint." She graduated from Marygrove College in Detroit and then received her law degree cum laude from the University of Detroit Law School in 1973. Corrigan served as a law clerk for a year, then as an assisting prosecuting attorney for the state of, then worked for 10 years...
