    Corrupt federal prosecutors presenting false evidence in order to shake down a blameless corporation and bring in tens of millions of dollars seems like a pretty dramatic story. Especially when former prosecutors support the charge and a chief judge acts on the allegations and takes dramatic action. Yet the media silence is deafening. Eric Holder’s Justice Department is implicated in a dramatic and shocking case of alleged corruption that is so bad that the Chief Judge of the Eastern District of California has taken what can rightly be called the “nuclear option” and recused all the judges in the district...
  • Obama admin looking to set aside millions of acres for habitat preservation

    A sweeping new Obama administration strategy to protect plants, fish and animals from the hazards of global warming would require the government to set aside millions of acres of land to preserve threatened habitat. “More than millions of acres across the landscape will be required,” said U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe. “The lands will be protected by easement, by land acquisitions, by local, by land trusts, by state agencies, by federal agencies,” he told reporters in releasing a 120-page National Fish, Wildlife and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy, in the works for four years. “We’re doing it for...

    Meteorologist Brian Sussman blows whistle on president's scheme The environmentalist movement isn’t about protecting the environment at all, according to meteorologist-turned-journalist Brian Sussman. It’s about destroying private property, controlling behavior, and expanding government – and the Obama administration has a secret plan to further all of it, he says. Sussman is now blowing the whistle on the real nature of environmentalism in his explosive brand-new book, “Eco-Tyranny.” He reveals secret memos from inside Obama’s Bureau of Land Management, or BLM, outlining a covert plan “to pursue a program of land consolidation” for the federal government to secure tens of millions...
  • Unholy Land Grabs: Eminent Domain and the Church

    Note: This commentary was delivered by Prison Fellowship President Mark Earley. In 2003, government leaders in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, adopted what they called “Vision 2025.” The plan is billed as the “largest set of public redevelopment projects in the history of Tulsa County.” The members of Centennial Baptist Church in Sand Springs call it something else: an “unholy land grab.” It’s a land grab for which we have the Supreme Court to thank. Part of “Vision 2025” calls for redeveloping “an abandoned industrial area” in Sand Springs for “big box retailers” and other stores. However, the area in question isn’t...
  • Florida eminent domain may evict 6,000 for waterfront yachting and housing complex

    Florida's Riviera Beach is a poor, predominantly black, coastal community that intends to revitalize its economy by using eminent domain, if necessary, to displace about 6,000 local residents and build a billion-dollar waterfront yachting and housing complex. "This is a community that's in dire need of jobs, which has a median income of less than $19,000 a year," said Riviera Beach Mayor Michael Brown. He defends the use of eminent domain by saying the city is "using tools that have been available to governments for years to bring communities like ours out of the economic doldrums and the trauma centers."...
  • War possible in the next few years

    Latin American war could possibly break out in the next few years. Unlike what happened in the 20th century when all confrontations were caused by border disputes, this time the war could be a bloody, multinational conflict triggered by ideological reasons. All symptoms indicate that behind that likely disaster will be the irresponsible behavior of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, a quixotic firebrand who is intent in reconstructing the continent according to his revolutionary fantasies. .... Venezuela has replaced Cuba as the headquarters of the violent left. A few weeks ago, a former Peruvian Army officer, Antauro Humala, after proclaiming himself...

    The land-grabbing ranch expropriators in Venezuela are doing their stealing of lands in Che Guevara tee shirts! Che's not just a nostalgic relic of the past, he is the live image of the recrudescence of communism in action. The Financial Times of the U.K. is doing by far the best job of covering the descent of Venezuela into a Marxist hell. The United States media seemingly couldn't care less about the fate of a very important neighbor. Their performance so far mocks any claim to serve the public with necessary information.

    Mugabe threatens US, UK From correspondents in Harare July 20, 2003 PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe has warned Britain and the United States that their descendants living in the country "will be the first to die" if the two countries launch an attack, a newspaper said today. "They will never attempt to do here what they did in Iraq because it is their children who will be the first to die," the private Daily News on Sunday quoted Mugabe as telling a rally two weeks ago. The rally, held shortly before a visit to southern Africa by US President George...

    Shielded by the media spotlight focused on Homeland Security, the lame duck session of Congress has once again engaged in midnight madness. At 2:35 a.m. Friday morning, the House of Representatives passed 15 bills, all loaded with pork-barrel budgets to acquire more land for the government. Among these bills is S 990, labeled "CARA-lite," by the American Land Rights Association, which sees the bill as a scaled-down version of the Conservation and Reinvestment Act (also known as the Confiscation and Relocation Act), a bill that would pump billions of dollars into government land acquisition. S 990 passed the Senate last...
