    U.S. District Court for D.C. ^ | 02/26/2010 | U.S. Attorneys' Office
    U.S. Attorneys with the Department of Justice have moved to dismiss Orly Taitz's Quo Warranto case for lack of jurisdiction. Additionally, the U.S. Attorneys' Office asserts that any judicial or bar sanctions against Dr. Taitz are the consequences of her own actions. "Although, to Defendant's knowledge, this is Dr. Taitz’s first case in which she serves as Plaintiff, this is not her first bite at the apple, or even her second: she has unsuccessfully represented plaintiffs in at least three judicial districts seeking to raise similar claims. In each of these cases, the United States district courts have declined to...

    We've got some real challenges facing us. FR was established to fight against government corruption, overstepping, and abuse and to fight for a return to the limited constitutional government as envisioned and set forth by our founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and other founding documents. One of the biggest cases of government corruption, overstepping and abuse that I know of is its disgraceful headlong slide into a socialist hell. Our founders never intended for abortion to be the law of the land. And they never intended the Supreme Court to be a legislative body. They...

    WASHINGTON - Some election-year advice to Republicans from a high-ranking source who has the president's ear: Don't use a proposed constitutional amendment against gay marriage as a campaign tool. Just who is that political strategist? Laura Bush. The first lady told "Fox News Sunday" that she thinks the American people want a debate on the issue. But, she said, "I don't think it should be used as a campaign tool, obviously." "It requires a lot of sensitivity to just talk about the issue — a lot of sensitivity," she said. The Senate will debate legislation that would have the Constitution...

    WASHINGTON - The Pentagon is looking at ways the military can help provide more security along the U.S. southern border, defense officials said Thursday, once again drawing the nation's armed forces into a politically sensitive domestic role. On Capitol Hill on Thursday, the House voted 252-171 to allow Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld to assign military personnel under certain circumstances to help the Homeland Security Department perform border security. The House added the provision to a larger military measure. Paul McHale, the assistant secretary of defense for homeland defense, asked officials this week to come up with options for the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Bush administration said Sunday it will accept an extraordinary offer by a United Arab Emirates-based company to submit to a second - and broader - U.S. review of potential security risks in its deal to take over significant operations at six leading American ports. The plan averts an impending political showdown. The Treasury Department said in a statement it will promptly begin the review once the company formally files a request for one. It said the same government panel that earlier investigated the deal but found no reason for national security concerns will reconsider it. In...
  • Rape verdict: can we feel safe in Dubai still?

    My women friends and I used to feel pretty secure being in Dubai, because we used to believe the Dubai mantra “The city that cares” and we hear repeatedly government officials touting the low crime rate. All that flew out the window when this Dubai court doled out a sentence of two year imprisonment for gang rape! We are all truly outraged! What a sham! Even as Dubai claimed itself to be socially progressive in many ways, we had not for a minute thought it would be so far behind in its policies and protection of crimes against women. This...
