    Feb 23 (Reuters) - A federal judge ruled on Tuesday that U.S. State Department officials and aides to Hillary Clinton should be questioned under oath about whether the former secretary of state's use of a private email system was an effort to skirt open records laws. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan is likely to add to the uncertainty hovering over Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic nomination for the November U.S. presidential election, about the legal consequences of her decision to exclusively use a private email server in her New York home for her government work. **SNIP**...

    State Republican Party leaders voted in Richmond on Saturday to ask the state to cancel a required party loyalty pledge in the March 1 GOP presidential primary. Roger Miles, a GOP state central committee member, said shortly after the unanimous voice vote that the party leaders are halting their plans because of "bad publicity." At the party's request, the State Board of Elections has been requiring all voters in the GOP primary to sign and print their name on a statement affirming "I am a Republican" before being allowed to cast a ballot. Saturday's development comes after The Pilot learned...

    RICHMOND Three African American pastors filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court on Wednesday seeking to stop the requirement that people voting in the March 1 GOP primary sign a statement saying they're Republicans. Virginia voters do not register by party and anyone can vote in a primary. But for the March 1 presidential primary, the Republican Party of Virginia asked for - and the State Board of Elections approved - use of an affiliation statement. Voters in the GOP primary must sign a form that reads: "My signature below indicates that I am a Republican." The move is allowed...

    The FBI announced today that the shootings in San Bernardino, Calif. were an "act of terrorism." The FBI's conclusion is undoubtedly based on multiple pieces of evidence, including what may turn out to be a key fact. Tashfeen Malik, who has been identified as one of the two terrorists responsible for the massacre, reportedly swore allegiance to the head of the Islamic State during the first minutes of the attack. Malik and her husband, Syed Farook, are accused of killing 14 people and wounding more than 20 others. According to multiple reports, Malik swore her fealty to Abu Bakr al...

    FERGUSON, Mo. (Reuters) - Four white men carrying military-style rifles and sidearms added a disquieting element to riot-torn Ferguson, Missouri, when they began patrolling the streets before dawn on Tuesday, which police quickly labeled "inflammatory." The men said they were part of a group called "Oath Keepers," which describes itself as a non-partisan association of current and former U.S. soldiers, police and first responders who aim to protect the U.S. Constitution. They told reporters on the street that they were in Ferguson to protect a media organization. The men attracted immediate attention in the mostly black neighborhood, which exploded into...

US Soldiers take the oath of citizenship at Camp Victory in Baghdad in 2007.

"That is very true, but it starts almost with the oath of office which usually ends with 'So help me God,'" Walters said during the talk show, after actress Jane Seymour's remarks over a new political ad by Democratic Sen.

    There has been a wave of attacks against religious freedom inside the United States Military. There was the Air Force officer who was forced to remove a Bible from his desk because it might offend someone. There is the military chaplain who was instructed to resign his commission if he refused to “get on board” with the abolition of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. There’s the 20-year-old ethics course that was eliminated in July 2011 because it referenced scripture.

    The U.S. Air Force Academy may drop a religious reference from an oath cadets take to swear allegiance to the school's honor code. The Military Religious Freedom Foundation has protested the "so help me God" phrase that was added to the end of an oath that has cadets swearing they won't lie, cheat, steal or tolerate those who do. According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, the religious freedom foundation says tying the honor code to a religious test violates the U.S. Constitution. The full oath reads: I, (name), having been appointed an Air Force cadet in the United States Air...

Rand Paul (R-Ky.) created quite a stir with his 13-hour filibuster against the Brennan nomination. Not until he received written assurances from Attorney General Eric Holder that U.S. citizens would not be targeted for killing by drones on U.S. soil would the doughty Kentuckian stand down. Good for him. John Brennan then proceeded to take the Oath of Office, as administered by Vice...

    PHOENIX -- Republican lawmakers have introduced a bill that would give Arizona high school seniors the option to recite a loyalty oath before they graduate. Originally, House Bill 2467 would have made the oath a prerequisite for graduation from any public high school in the state. The Arizona Capitol Times reported the change Tuesday. "To me it's not a Republican bill, it's not a Democrat bill, it's an American bill," said Rep. Steve Smith of Maricopa, one of the bill's sponsors. "People feel that our high school kids that will be adults should understand their role as an American citizen."

    This is a personal declaration, which I wish to make in front of Free Republic, and anyone who comes across it. As a whole, the ACA (aka ObamaCare) is bad law; in that through it the government is over stepping its bounds and is becoming more overly intrusive in the daily lives of Americans. The mandate, now tax, is especially onerous, because it penalizes American citizens for non activity. With the Supreme Court ruling on June 28th, 2012, the government now has precedent to try and force Americans, who are literally doing nothing into activity, through the threat of a...

    REFLECTIONS ON PRESIDENTIAL OBLIGATIONS Ever think about every president’s first official act? Before he can do anything else, before he can make a binding appointment or issue a single order, he swears a solemn oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. Normally, a Supreme Court Justice administers the oath in public (though a lesser representative of the judicial system may stand in, if it’s an emergency; Calvin Coolidge was sworn in by his father upon the death of Warren Harding, for example). The U.S. president is not crowned by a bishop in a religious ceremony;...

This begs two questions: Where is Congress on Libya? And does President Obama think he took an oath to the United States Constitution, or to the United Nations Charter? Obama said today that the United States has moved “swiftly” on Libya (one would hate to see “not swiftly”)

    The votes cast during the first days of the congressional session by two Republican lawmakers who skipped Wednesday's swearing-in ceremony will be invalidated, House Rules Committee Chairman David Dreier (R-Calif.) said Thursday. Dreier made the announcement at a meeting of the Rules Committee after it became clear that Reps. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) and Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) had cast votes during the first two days of the 112th Congress despite having not technically been sworn into office. According to a report in The Hill, GOP leaders became aware that Sessions and Fitzpatrick had missed Wednesday's swearing-in after a photo surfaced of...

    Three would-be members of Congress were never sworn in yesterday, including National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions, which could have an impact on when the health care repeal bill is brought to the floor. The Texas Republican is a member of the Rules Committee, which has been engrossed all day in debating how to bring the health-care repeal bill to the floor. Debate on the bill is supposed to begin tomorrow, and it is supposed to be voted on Wednesday. But the news that Sessions -- who participated in debate and votes today in committee -- wasn't sworn in...

Two months after her general election win over...

    I received over the electronic transom an idea that I certainly think is worthy. If you do as well, why not forward it to every Tea Party, Libertarian and Second Amendment activist you know? Mike III "Keep Your Oath" Rallies The GOP has taken the House of Representatives and many state houses across the country. Most of us who have worked so hard to elect these people think that now we can rest until next year. Unfortunately, the lobbyists and party machines don't think that way.

    It has been proposed by various groups and individuals that an organization known as "Oath Keepers" is racist, seditious, hateful, and pernicious. I'm here to tell you the real story. I have been a member of Oath Keepers since August 2009. My member number is under 500. There are currently over 10,000 dues paying members, and tens of thousands on their Facebook site. I have seen the inner workings since the early days as the acting Alaska State Chapter President; truly, a view from the inside. Let's set aside the controversy for a moment, and examine the term "Oath Keeper"....

    Prince William County, Va. - Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials will release to Prince William authorites the identities and final disposition of every convicted criminal illegal immigrant apprehended in the county and turned over to ICE, said Chairman Corey A. Stewart on Saturday. Stewart indicated that this reversed three years of "stiff-armed" responses by ICE to the same question. "They've also said they will increase detention center space in Virginia to hold illegal aliens until deportation. It won't solve the problem, but it will help alleviate the prob-lem." Stewart says "this data is the tip of the iceberg" and will...
