  • Analysis of Stay in Palmer v. D.C.

    Gun Watch ^ | 31 July, 2014 | Dean Weingarten
    The stay of the permanent injunction ordered by Judge Frederic J. Scullin in the Palmer v. D.C. case has raised considerable ire among those who believe that the right to keep and bear arms has been denied in the District of Columbia for far too long.   Many thought that if constitutional carry were allowed for a period of time in the District, crime rates would have dropped.  Alan Gura predicted such a drop.    Many thought a crime rate drop would make it hard to justify a stay.   Some accused Alan Gura of being an accomplice of the establishment...
  • The Worst Funded Pension Systems In Michigan

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 7/30/2014 | Jarrett Skorup
    A large cause of Detroit’s historic bankruptcy in 2013 was its grossly underfunded retiree systems for public employees. At the time, the estimates of the amount of unfunded liabilities in the general pension system ran from 94 percent to 65 percent. But few people realize that many of Michigan’s largest cities have pension benefit systems in far worse conditions than Detroit. A review of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFR) by Capitol Confidential of the employee pension systems for Michigan’s 100 largest municipalities shows that many of them are 65 percent funded or worse. One system, Lincoln Park, is only...

    I was watching Obama's medicine show the other day - the jive, gesturing and smirk. As usual he was surrounded by an obliging audience planted behind him to smile, laugh and cheer for the cameras. Again he goaded Congress, the GOP, the "haters" - saying he'd have to do his job because they wouldn't. His medicine show is flat, forced and fake. The American people know it. The world knows it. Is it possible that the Congress sees it too?

    July 31, 2014 If Obama Tries to Grant Legal Status to Illegal Immigrants, the States Should Say 'I'll See You In Court' By Allan J. Favish It has been reported that President Barack Obama is planning to unilaterally attempt to grant legal status to illegal immigrants. There is no legal authority for him to do so. It has been reported that it may not be possible to stop Obama’s action with a lawsuit because nobody would have standing to bring the lawsuit. Legal experts see any challenge to the expected immigration policy changes headed for the same key roadblock facing...

    After failing to attract al-Qaeda in Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), the group formerly known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is now trying to gain the support of Libya's Ansar al-Sharia. An ISIS supporter recently endorsed the terror group on a global jihadist forum. On July 23rd, the militant urged ISIS followers to repost his comments on social networking websites, in order to push Ansar al-Sharia in Libya to swear allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Earlier this month, Abdelmalek Droukdel's al-Qaeda subsidiary refused to recognise the self-proclaimed caliphate and instead renewed allegiance to the parent organisation led by...

    Only two things are certain in life: death and taxes. Well, not exactly. I'm always dumbfounded when the Tea Party – basically the old conservative wing of the Republican Party – is routinely and viscously slandered as racists, extremists, and blamed for every misfortune or injustice to befall America. What is conveniently concealed or transposed by puppets of propaganda, premeditated with extreme prejudice I might add, is that our members are nothing more than staunch Reaganites: loyal to a man who is largely considered one of the greatest Presidents in American history by Republicans, Independents and moderate Democrats alike. Yet,...

According to those reports, Lake Huron and Lake Michigan were 29 inches below their average measurements taken since 1918. Scientists warned communities that they could only expect more tragedy with the Great Lakes. With a lack of rain from climate change, they told everyone to expect levels to continue to drop.

    The expected demonization of Dr. Peter Steinmetz has sprung full blown in the old media, in spite of everyone recognizing that the Doctor was engaging in protected strong political speech by carrying his AR-15 into the non-secured part of an airport.   From phoenixnewtimes.com: It seems Steinmetz, a Tempe resident, was doing nothing wrong up until the moment he pointed the weapon inadvertently at two women in the "B"-gate waiting area. Police tell New Times that, in general, it's not illegal to carry a semiautomatic rifle into an airport terminal. In this case, the problem was "the way he was...

    The House unexpectedly delayed a vote Thursday on the House GOP's $659 million border bill. A vote on the controversial measure was slated for about 1.p.m., but after concluding an hour of floor debate on the measure the House went straight into debate on highway funding. The move suggests GOP leaders are still whipping their members to try to win the vote. Most House Democrats are expected to oppose the GOP measure since it changes a 2008 law so that child migrants can be deported faster. Meanwhile, many conservatives do not want to provide the Obama administration with any new...

    As per its common dictionary definition, theft is described as “..the taking of another person’s property without that person’s permission or consent with the intent to deprive the rightful owner of it.” To commit a theft a person or entity must act in a state of mens rea or guilty mind and with full intent to deprive the victim of property rightfully belonging to him or her. For thousands of years those in power have taken what does not belong to them and given it to others with no claim to such property in order to boost their own ego...

Rather than offering a congestion explanation for locating these rockets in schools, why does the “smartest woman in the world” not ask herself this question first?

Therefore, Mississippi’s last remaining abortion mill in Jackson can continue to practice its baby killing. The Jackson Free Press reported on Tuesday: The Jackson Women’s Health Organization was unable to obtain the privileges and challenged the constitutionality of the law in court and succeeded in obtaining an injunction against the law in federal court.

They needed more room in which to work and live. In the German language they needed more "raum tzu arbeit und leben". Hence the term "Lebensraum" came to be used to describe their yearnings for world-wide domination. They believed it was their eventual destiny to re-populate the lands of other countries around them, especially those in eastern Europe and Russia. In practice however they really weren’t too picky about whose country they...

A long time, certainly under several presidents, whether it’s called “amnesty” or whether euphemisms are used to substitute for the word. But there’s a reason Congress hasn’t done much about it in a long time, and that’s because the American people don’t want it and Congress is at least somewhat responsive to the people, despite the fact that many politicians and those who give them money are more interested in amnesty than the general public is. Presidents have understand that, too, and have also understood...

    In a prime example of the negative politics employed by the modern Democratic Party, an apparently misread Facebook post led to an amateurish and inflammatory attack against a Republican Party hopeful. US Representative Tammy Duckworth (D-Illinois) accused her opponent of attacking the African America community, attributing a Ben Carson quote that was posted on GOP challenger Lawrence Kaifesh's Facebook campaign page. On her own Facebook page, Rep. Duckworth lambasted Kaifesh for his alleged comments "claiming African-Americans are dependent on government." Although favored, Rep. Duckworth is engaged in a surprisingly competitive race with Kaifesh for Illinois 8th Congressional district, which covers...

    Two published studies coming from locations as diverse as Montana and Duke University have reinforced conservatives’ intuitive understanding that socialists and Democrats–being members of a Party dedicated to socialism–are likely to be cheaters. With its disdain for rules, honesty and ethics, socialism finds a home in the Democrat Party. Many of its most prominent members are regularly elected and re-elected by voter fraud and have been tried and convicted of serious crimes. It is not uncommon for those who have worked in political campaigns at any level of government to experience some form of Democrat cheating. It will start with...

    A great paradox of Obama’s America is that racism has been so thoroughly condemned that it only rarely receives public /*0attention. To some extent, the election of a black president relaxed what remained of our national focus on race matters, it triggered a prolonged self-congratulation and a deceptive notion that we had reached an ending, a resolution. Obama himself is, of course, a sophisticated, and very particular, thinker about race on a number of levels -- as a child of a mixed marriage, he saw race from the inside out and the outside in; as a local politician, he ran...

    A number of blogs have reported how Obama yelled at Binyamin Netanyahu on the phone on Sunday.  I have to question why Obama is so upset at Israel’s current operation to eliminate terror tunnels, when he usually stays so calm. When he speaks with world leaders like Vladimir Putin, French PM Hollande, and British PM David Cameron, Obama doesn’t yell.  And when those leaders speak with Netanyahu, they don’t presume to yell at him.  Only Barack Hussein Obama yells at Netanyahu, scolding him like a schoolmaster to a student. What possible motivation could Obama have? Back in 2008, candidate then-Senator Obama had lots of...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 7/30/2014 | Tom Gantert
    When Michigan passed right-to-work in December of 2012, critics were quick to predict that workers’ compensation would plummet. Union officials derided it as “right-to-work for less.” Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer, D-East Lansing, said that right-to-work legislation would lower employee wages. But the early returns show that hasn’t happened. Michigan’s per-capita personal income increased from $38,291 in 2012 (before right-to-work became law) to $39,215 in 2013, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis. That increase was the ninth highest in the country. Per-capita personal income includes income from all sources divided by the number of people...
  • Obama’s Support Of Islamic Socialism Seen In Israel

    According to President Obama, Muslims built the “very fabric of our nation.” This is interesting because the very fabric of our nation was built during the colonial period. During this time there wasn’t a single Muslim in America. In fact, there’s no record of a mosque in the United States until 1915 when a group of Albanians built one in Maine. Obama’s rewriting of history is on one hand ridiculous and on the other hand completely understandable. This President favors Islamic socialism in the middle east and he favors socialism at home. He’s in bed with Islam because it suits...

    Gun Watch ^ | 26 July, 2014 | Dean Weingarten
    There were no police at the time the Constitution was written and the Bill of Rights ratified.   Police as we know them did not come into being until a couple of decades later, in the UK, with Sir Robert Peel.   There, giving the police power was resisted as an infringement on local power for a considerable time, and police only gradually spread across the United States. Police forces have taken over many of the functions of local militias, and are for the most part, locally controlled.   The closest modern equivalent of to the militia of the constitutional era are...
  • McDonald's Could Be Liable for Labor Practices ("Joint employer," Obama's NLRB jumps the shark)

    McDonald's is coming under intensifying pressure for labor practices at its U.S. restaurants. The National Labor Relations Board said Tuesday that the world's biggest hamburger chain could be named as a joint employer in several complaints regarding worker rights at franchise-owned restaurants. The decision is pivotal because it could expose McDonald's Corp. to liability for management practices in those locations. It also comes as protests for higher pay have captured national attention, with labor groups calling for pay of $15 an hour and the right to unionize. Organizers had been pushing to get McDonald's named as a joint employer at...
