  • God Is No Respecter of Persons...eschatology 14

    For there is no respect of persons with God. For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing...
  • Is There Enough Of America Left To Be Saved?

    Authored by Paul Craig Roberts, As many readers of this website have noticed, the United States has lost its character and become a dysfunctional society. In place of a largely homogeneous population once united in veneration of the Constitution, there exists today massive diversity which Identity Politics has used to disunite the population into separate interest groups. No clause or article of the Constitution, nor the Bill of Rights, is safe. The George W. Bush and Obama regimes destroyed two of the most important protections of civil liberty—habeas corpus and due process. Bush declared indefinite imprisonment on suspicion alone...

    Here is a short, yet interesting, tale that I would like to report on. It’s kind of cute and helps us to think about our life and the lives of others. I’d like to use it as a springboard to discuss the importance of British Common Law. As well as why American Law needs a reset. Anyways... It seems that everyone recognizes that China is a big market, as it is. It is a HUGE market. As such, many understand that China has a lot of potential for new ventures, opportunities, and expansion.

  • ‘Original Intent’: Safeguard for the Supreme Court, Part I

    The Coach's Team ^ | 7/31/18 | KrisAnne Hall
    In light of President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the left hasn’t changed its playbook. So, it is no surprise to hear claims that appointing an “Original Intent” Justice will bring back Jim Crow and chattel slavery. A reasonable look at history (which is not to be expected from the left) should give rise to the opposite conclusion. In fact, a SCOTUS Justice who follows original intent should be viewed as a safeguard against a racist court. The infamous case of Scott v. US (The Dred Scott Decision) was NOT an example of Original Intent but...
  • More than 450 people in Florida ordered to give up guns under new law, report says

    Hundreds of gun owners in Florida have been ordered to give up their guns under a new law that took effect after the deadly Parkland shooting in February, according to a report published Monday. The Risk Protection Order, signed by Florida Gov. Rick Scott just three weeks after a gunman killed 17 people at Stoneman Douglas, aims to temporarily remove weapons from gun owners who have been deemed by a judge to possibly be a threat to themselves or others.Roughly 200 firearms have been confiscated in the state since the law was enacted, Sgt. Jason Schmittendorf, of the Pinellas County...

    ....snip... Last week we showed you video of a DIY, pistol-shooting quadcopter firing off a few test rounds in the woods. Now federal agents are investigating the 18-year-old Connecticut kid who reportedly built the thing. Police found that the video was uploaded by one Austin Haughwout, Connecticut local news station WFSB reports. Haughwout has previously been involved in a drone-related altercation when he was attacked by a woman who was apparently not a fan his (non-gun-related)quadcopter antics. On Friday, Haughwout's father said that his son was the creator of the pistol-firing drone, having built it with one of his professors...

    metallicman ^ | June 2018 | editorial staff
    The American Civil War was a tumultuous time. A number of states were very unhappy with the federal government and wanted to leave the union. The federal government would have none of that. Instead, they wanted the states to obey the dictates from Washington. Is that any different from today? Let’s look at Calexit from a historical perspective. When I was in school I was quite the history buff. Indeed, one of my most favorite classes was history. I would read my textbooks for fun, and I completely absorbed the information there like a sponge. It didn’t matter what I...

  • More California crazy laws

    California has long been known as the land of “fruits and nuts” – a mentality that permeates every aspect of life there – and it never ends. The latest fiascoes involve “law and order” – or at least, what one would assume deals with the law and the orderly adherence to it. But this is California we’re talking about, and like Alice through the Looking Glass, nothing is what it seems. The state has passed gun-control laws, laws regulating items purchased, requiring ammunition identification that is impossible to do, and even changing the laws to reduce the penalties for crimes....

    ---snip--- Government has three primary functions. It should [1] provide for military defense of the nation. It should [2] enforce contract between individuals. It [3] should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government, in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the costs come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” —Milton Friedman I found this on numerous blogs. There is an amazing amount of truth behind this heartfelt meme.

  • God's Love And His Law...themes first John pt 6

    By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.( I John 5:2-3)The Apostle John wrote an epistle to restore the faith of those who had been ravaged by the distorted spirituality of the gnostics. As part of the cure, he declared three statements about the nature of the only true God; God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all, God is Love, and finally, Jesus Christ has come (and...

    When you imagine Supreme Court justices back in their law school days, what springs to mind? You probably imagine the future SCOTUS member as a total gunner, more Tracy Flick than Elle Woods — always prepared, always well-dressed, and always with their hand in air. For those of you who were slackers in law school but now aspire to judicial office, here’s some inspiration. It comes from Judge Raymond M. Kethledge, the esteemed Sixth Circuit judge, noted author, and possible Supreme Court nominee (a finalist for the seat now held by Justice Neil M. Gorsuch).

    SEATTLE (AP) - A former chief counsel for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Seattle was sentenced Thursday to four years in prison for stealing the identities of people facing deportation and using them to run up bills totaling $190,000. Raphael Sanchez, 44, resigned when he was charged in the four-year scheme in February. He had overseen deportation proceedings in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington since 2011 as the agency's top lawyer in the region. "Sanchez was entrusted with significant authority to represent the United States in crucial immigration proceedings that deeply shaped the lives of many," attorneys Luke Cass...

    n May of 2017, 90 year-old Margaret Colvin was fatally mauled by the dog her granddaughter had just adopted from a Virginia Beach rescue. According to the adopter, and the lawsuit that was filed, rescue personnel never told her about the dog’s significant bite history. Tragically, this case does not represent an isolated event. Many of us in the animal welfare field have been increasingly disturbed about a growing practice of some shelters and rescues, also known as releasing agencies, to achieve “no kill” of status at all costs, including the insistence on adoption of dangerous animals without due regard...

    BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungary’s parliament on Wednesday approved a package of bills that criminalises some help given to illegal immigrants, defying the European Union and human rights groups and narrowing the scope for action by non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Prime Minister Viktor Orban has been a vocal critic of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door migrant policy and has led eastern European opposition to EU quotas that aimed to distribute asylum seekers around the bloc. Orban’s right-wing Fidesz party tightened its grip on parliament in an April election fought on a fiercely anti-immigration platform that demonised U.S. billionaire George Soros and liberal...

    Last spring, as Central American children flooded into Texas in a way he had never seen in his three-decade career, Border Patrol agent Robert Harris decided to experiment. His intelligence analysts estimated that 78 percent of the guides smuggling other migrants were Mexicans younger than 18 — teenagers often hired or conscripted by drug cartels that knew they would not be prosecuted if caught — and he wanted to attack this loophole. “Why don’t we remove these juveniles from the smuggling cycle?” Harris, the outgoing commander of the Laredo sector of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, recalled thinking. Now, as...

    Senator Warren, a Democrat of Massachusetts, is in the headlines for joining with Senator Cory Gardner, a Republican who represents Colorado, to introduce the Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States Act. That legislation would, as Warren put it in a tweet, “let states, territories, & tribes decide for themselves how best to regulate marijuana — without federal interference.” Justice Thomas is Warren’s natural ally on the issue. He wrote an emphatic dissent in the 2005 Supreme Court case Gonzalez v. Raich. Alberto Gonzalez was President George W. Bush’s attorney general, and Angel Raich is an Oakland, Calif., woman who...

    LANSING, MI - The Michigan House joined the Senate in voting to repeal prevailing wage Wednesday afternoon, officially unraveling a law that had guaranteed union-level wages on public construction sites for half a century. It's an idea forwarded by Protect Michigan Taxpayers, a group funded largely by the Associated Builders and Contractors. They circulated a petition for the initiative and, having obtained enough signatures, sent it to the legislature for consideration. The legislature could have let the issue go to the ballot, but chose to take it up and approve it on Wednesday. Shortly after the Senate passed it 23-14,...
