  • Federal judge stops Michigan law that bans straight-ticket voting

    07/21/2016 5:46:14 PM PDT · by Impy · 35 replies ^ | 7-21-16 | Brad Devereaux
    A federal judge ruled Thursday that a Michigan law banning straight-ticket voting would place a disproportionate burden on African Americans' right to vote, and granted a request for a preliminary injunction to block enforcement of the law. Mark Brewer, a lawyer in the case and former head of the Michigan Democratic Party, argued that the elimination of straight-party voting would likely have a larger impact on African-American voters, noting "extremely high" correlations between the size of the African-American voting population within a district, and the use of straight-party voting in that district. New straight-ticket voting law in Michigan prompts lawsuit...

    Fuel Fix ^ | June 24, 2013 | Jennifer A. Dlouhy
    The Supreme Court on Monday dealt a big blow to the oil industry, when it decided not to hear a legal challenge against the federal government’s decision to approve the sale of fuel containing 15 percent ethanol. The decision not to hear the case — which was issued without comment Monday morning — was a defeat for the American Petroleum Institute and several other groups that have been vigorously fighting the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2010 approval of the E15 blend. Although the agency green-lighted the sale of E15 for cars and trucks made since 2007, the higher-ethanol blend is not...

    Welcome to 'Panthers Stadium' (UPDATED)By MAGGIE HABERMAN | 7/17/12 7:38 AM EDT National Democrats have repeatedly touted their stand against taking corporate money for their convention in September, and so it was striking to see two emails from the DNC host committee referring to the Charlotte venue where President Obama will speak as "Panthers Stadium." It's the place where the Panthers play, but it's actually called Bank of America stadium. A recent email from the host committee signed by former Al Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile urged people to win a trip to Charlotte for the event, which will wrap...

    London, England-In yet another outrageous piece of social engineering from our coalition government, pensioners will be encouraged to downsize to smaller properties allowing local councils to rent their homes out as council houses and manage the tenancy. Local authorities will help older people move from their homes into more suitable accommodation. Grant Schapps, the Housing Minister, who is a conservative member of parliament claims the scheme will solve a so-called housing crisis as well as creating a system that will permit access to various sources of wealth that are currently not being used to pay for care.

He is grateful for the government's rescue of GM "I have nothing but good things to say about them" but...

    Socialism Is BackFrom the January 24, 2010, issue of NR ‘Socialism” is a word that has vexed thoughtful conservatives since 2008, along with the related terms “Marxist,” “radical,” and the whole nomenclature of leftish extremism. In his painstakingly documented book Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism, Stanley Kurtz dwells at great and profitable length on the president’s connections, and his coterie’s connections, with avowedly socialist and radical organizations. Glenn Beck, Jonah Goldberg, and other observers have with varying degrees of rigor pursued related lines of inquiry, locating affinities between Obama’s clique, along with mainstream Democrats more...

In 1976 the Peoples Temple changed a San Francisco political juggernaut which was secretly harboring designs of world communist revolution to a paranoid North Korean-style enclave in Jonestown in 1978. There, they negotiated with the Soviet Union, North Korea and others for a possible exodus. A Soviet delegation visited Jonestown, showering it with praise.

There is no mystery in its strategies and tactics. It has always been concrete and spelled out in black and white. It has also been openly and actively tested in the economic, political, and ideological struggle for control around globe.

    Conservative exasperation with media bias is a tired refrain, a waste of energy. Complaints of bias start from the premise that press coverage ought to be fair and objective. But is this the premise on which today's mainstream media is based? It's not. The premise that now guides the mainstream media is something we haven't seen before in this country - thus the never-ending consternation of conservatives at the blatant bias of the media and the nonchalance of its practitioners when caught in the act.

Up to 80,000 people packed into the capital's Olympic stadium for a rally organized by the ruling Cambodian People's Party (CPP), descendant of the puppet government installed by Hanoi after its troops ousted Beijing-backed Pol Pot on January 7, 1979.

Republican U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions was easily re-elected to a third term. With the election of Montgomery Mayor Bobby Bright and state Sen. Parker Griffith of Huntsville, Democrats gained one seat in Alabama's House delegation. Republicans will hold a 4-3 majority in the delegation and occupy both of Alabama's Senate seats.

    NEW YORK (AP) Democrats have won a majority in New York's state Senate. That gives the party control of the full Legislature and governor's office for the first time since 1935. Democrats, who outnumber Republicans by nearly 2 to 1 statewide, ended more than 40 years of GOP rule in the Senate thanks in part to the enthusiasm fueled by Barack Obama's historic presidential campaign. Democrats won at least 32 seats in the 62-seat chamber. They trailed 31 to 29 with two vacancies going into Tuesday.

    As both doctrine and praxis, to borrow from the old vernacular, communism may have been the most vicious phenomenon of the twentieth century. Part of the viciousness was its canny competence in purporting to be the chalice of hope for mankind. Nazism was also cruel, very cruel and industrially proficient in the mechanics of mass death. But it had no pretensions to universal humanitarianism. It was a master race ideology. Given this undisguised basic principle, its enemies and victims were evident at the near-start and they were by definition counted in the multitudes. Perhaps that is one reason why Hitler's...

The Democratic-controlled Legislature stripped Republican Gov. Mitt Romney of that authority in 2004 because of fears he would name a Republican to replace U.S. Sen.

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) A state senator told a black pastor testifying at a committee hearing that, given the chance to cast secret ballots, his fellow legislators would vote to legalize slavery. Sen. Vincent J. Fumo, D-Philadelphia, made the comments Tuesday during a hearing on a Republican-sponsored bill to amend the state Constitution to outlaw same-sex marriages and civil unions, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported on its Web site Wednesday. What you are advocating here is that we take away the rights of a minority. And I dont think thats right, Fumo, a staunch defender of gay rights, told the witness,...

    U.S. Senator Ken Salazar has asked today that the owner of 850 KOA "reprimand" Rush Limbaugh for what Salazar calls Limbaugh's "clear exhortation" for riots during the Democratic National Convention in Denver. Limbaugh said earlier this week that he is not calling for a riot in Denver in August but only "dreams" of it, to the tune of "White Christmas." "Now, I'm not inspiring or inciting riots. I'm dreaming. I'm dreaming of riots in Denver," he said mimicking the holiday tune. But Salazar, in a letter sent today to Clear Channel Radio, the owner of KOA, characterized Limbaugh's comments as...

    DENVER -- Lawmakers in the state are trying to determine what kind of action will be taken against Republican Rep. Douglas Bruce after he was ordered to leave the podium of the Colorado House of Representatives for saying that Colorado doesn't need "5,000 more illiterate peasants." Bruce made the comment Monday during a debate on a bill that would allow the state to help immigrant workers get temporary visas from the federal government. Rep. Kathleen Curry, D-Gunnison, who was chairing the floor debate, ordered Bruce to leave the speaker's podium after saying, "How dare you?" Bruce denied later he was...

    The apparent madness of Leftists opposing any drilling for oil in ANWR, where the environmental impact is practically nil and which would immediately begin to ratchet down the price of oil, and Leftists simultaneously railing against big oil companies for high oil prices is only apparently mad. The Left wants the price of oil high. The Left wants the price of all necessities like food and medicine high. The fact that this causes general misery and that this causes particular misery among the lower middle class does not prevent the Left from taking this perverse position. That fact is the...

    Hillary Clinton said that if she became president, the federal government would take a more active role in the economy, in an effort to address what she said were the excesses of the market and the Bush administration. She told the New York Times she would put her emphasis on issues like inequality and the role of institutions like government, rather than market forces, in addressing them. She said that economic excesses -- including executive-pay packages she characterized as often "offensive" and "wrong" and a tax code that had become "so far out of whack" in favoring the wealthy --...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined a broad economic vision Tuesday, saying it's time to replace an "on your own" society with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity. The Democratic senator said what the Bush administration touts as an "ownership society" really is an "on your own" society that has widened the gap between rich and poor. "I prefer a 'we're all in it together' society," she said. "I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none."...
