    "Black Lives Matter protesters took to the streets across California on Thursday night as related protests in Dallas turned tragic as snipers shot eleven police officers, killing four. The California protests were rowdy, but not deadly. In Oakland, demonstrators vandalized a police station and snarled traffic. The San Francisco Chronicle reports: About 2,000 angry protestors marched through downtown Oakland, blocking traffic on Interstate 880 and pouring red paint on the front door of an Oakland police station in solidarity with two black men fatally shot by police officers this week in Louisiana and Minnesota. Cars were backed up for...

We join the authorities in proposing a delay and ask people not to come this Sunday," the organisers said in a statement on Saturday. The authorities earlier asked for the march to be put off, perhaps for several weeks, to allow the police to concentrate their resources on the investigation into the attacks...

    Crowds gathered in the French capital on Sunday to attend a global march for the climate, despite the ban on gatherings enforced by French authorities.

The march, which was set to take place in dozens of cities around the world, was restricted in the French capital falling under the ban on...

    Ferguson, Missouri The Missouri chapter of the Oath Keepers are planning to hold an open carry march through downtown Ferguson, Mo., which will reportedly involve arming 50 black protestors with AR-15 rifles. The decision to hold the event transpired after St. Louis County officials, in violation of Missouris open carry law, insisted that members of the group could not open carry long barrel rifles within the city.

Most people said the cutoff would be delayed, regardless, because of problems with the healthcare rollout and in line with other enactment deadlines that have been changed, the survey found. The level of public confusion about the healthcare law became clear when people were asked to identify the deadline for complying with the individual mandate to carry health coverage. Fewer than half (45 percent) correctly said March 31, 2014. Another 24...

    The American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC) announced plans to hold "an historic event for 9.11.13 where one million Muslims will march to Washington, D.C. and demand that our civil rights will be protected by our government." Included in their grievances is that our government hasn't made full release of the 9/11 commission report, and they intend to protest American intervention in the Middle East. They dubbed the event the "Million Muslim March." That name has proven toxic, and it's not hard to imagine why. Something about the idea of a million Muslims descending upon Washington to express their disgust...

    The U.S. economy will face the brunt of massive federal spending cuts just as growth in private sector jobs is plunging, according to government data released Friday. **SNIP** The disappointing job growth is the result of weaker performance in critical industries and the steady decline in the government workforce. The Labor Department report showed the U.S. Postal Service alone lost 12,000 positions. Meanwhile, rapidly growing sectors such as health care and construction tempered their gains. This is the correction that many have been predicting, said Stuart Hoffman, chief economist at PNC Financial Services Group.

The Land of Lincoln has long been known as the last state where concealed carry is not allowed, and although that may soon change, it wouldnt be surprising to see state legislators shuffling their feet. Even though the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals deemed the concealed carry ban unconstitutional, the Illinois House of Representatives continues to push anti-gun legislation. In fact, one bill proposing a ban on semi-automatic firearms was approved by the House just this week. On Wednesday, gun owners from across the state gathered in Springfield,...
