    Stand With Arizona ^ | 02-09-2013 | John Hill
    by John HillStand With ArizonaHe’s known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff”. But Joe Arpaio continues to show he deserves the moniker of “America’s JOBS Sheriff”. Because every time Sheriff Joe conducts a raid, he frees up jobs for legal American workers. And at a time when raids by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are almost unheard of - Barack Obama has slashed workplace enforcement by a staggering 70% since 2009 - Sheriff Joe and his department keep on working to crack down on illegal aliens in the workplace. Today was no exception, as Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies raided Sportex Apparel in Tempe, AZ,  a custom-made...

    Three years ago, midway through his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama took on the Supreme Court of the United States of America. “With all due deference to the separation of powers,” the president said, “last week the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that I believe will open the floodgates for special interests—including foreign corporations—to spend without limit in our elections. [Applause.] I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities. [Applause.]” Justice Samuel Alito, by mouthing the words “not true” as Obama read these sentences off...

    American Thinker ^ | February 8, 2013 | Rick Moran
    can't write this without giggling like a 12 year old school girl. As all of you know, CNN's Piers Morgan has been on a gun grabbing crusade since the tragedy at Sandy Hook. He has shamlessly stood atop the dead bodies of little children to make a political cause out of gun control. And he has done it with the most extraordinary sanctimony and moral preening imaginable. Now comes the case of the rogue LA police officer, Chris Dorner, whose obscene "manifesto" praises media elites, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, gun control efforts - and Piers Morgan. Jim Treacher: Apparently it's...

    On Tuesday, Chris Crane, president of the union representing more than 7,600 rank-and-file ICE agents, told the House Judiciary Committee how the agency is "now guided in large part by the influences of powerful special interest groups that advocate on behalf of illegal aliens." Crane testified: These influences have in large part eroded the order, stability and effectiveness of the agency, creating confusion among all ICE employees. For the last four years it has been a roller coaster for ICE officers with regard to who they can or cannot arrest, and which federal laws they will be permitted to enforce....

    Besides President Barack Obama’s executive actions regarding illegal aliens and U.S. immigration policy, without much notice by the GOP and news organizations, drastic reductions are expected within the Department of Homeland Security’s immigration enforcement-related bureaus, said a top protective intelligence and assessment specialist on Monday. “Required budget reductions for the DHS will seriously undo much of the progress made over the past few years to secure our borders” said Dr. Lyle J. Rapacki, a consultant at Behavioral Analysis and Threat Assessment. Dr. Rapacki claims there also will be a noticeable negative impact on aviation and maritime safety and security as...

    Chrisian Catholicism ^ | Friday, February 8, 2013 | Jerry Slevin
    Two events within the last few months confirmed conclusively that local law enforcement in the USA cannot prevent Catholic Church leaders from facilitating predatory priests who sexually abuse children. Documents just released in Los Angeles and others released in Philadelphia a few months earlier show this. Two Cardinals, Mahony and Bevilacqua, oversaw numerous predatory priests who were enabled to continue to abuse children repeatedly even after the Cardinals knew the priests were predators. It is the same old story that played out with Cardinal Law in Boston a decade before and in many other U.S. dioceses since. Local prosecutors beholden...

The law is what the kings say it is.”—Ta-Nehisi Coates, writing for The Atlantic “If George Bush had done this, it would have been stopped.”—Joe Scarborough, former Republican congressman and current MSNBC pundit When Barack Obama ascended to the presidency in 2008, there was a sense, at least among those who voted for him, that the country might change for the better. Those who watched in awe as President Bush chipped away at our civil liberties over the course of...

    CNSNews ^ | February 8, 2013 | Terence P. Jeffrey
    (CNSNews.com) - A federal advisory committee appointed by the Obama administration to produce a report on climate change says that if Earth’s climate were still “primarily controlled by natural factors”—rather than by man-made global warming—then the next ice age would occur within the next 1,500 years. But now, because of humans, the committee says, the next ice age has been "delayed indefinitely." “Confirmation of what are called Milankovich cycles (cyclical changes in the Earth’s orbit that explain the onset and ending of ice ages) led a few scientists in the 1970s to suggest that the current warm interglacial period might...

    Tea party leaders are turning to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, to deliver their message following President Barack Obama's State of the Union address, a speech that will compete with the official Republican response. Paul will make his remarks soon after Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, wraps up the GOP response Tuesday night, a Paul spokeswoman confirms to CNN. "We are giving a voice to the tea party movement when the mainstream media and the Republican establishment wants to write us off as dead," said Amy Kremer, chairman of the Tea Party Express. This is the third year in a row that...

    President Barack Obama and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal have much in common. While Obama is a liberal Democrat and Jindal is a Republican, both of these men are relatively young and supposedly intelligent. They are minorities who graduated from Ivy League schools and spent most of their careers in government.

    Imagine if President George W. Bush or senior members of his administration asserted that they had the power to assassinate any person, including American citizens on American soil, because they merely suspected them of being involved in a terrorist plot. Now, imagine that they went a step further and claimed that this broad new power was not subject to any oversight by Congress or the judiciary or international law. A lot of left-wingers would be apoplectic. And they would be right. Sadly, a Democratic president, Barack Obama, and senior national security officials in his administration appear to be wielding just...

    In the current economic climate, politicians and interest groups have encouraged the public to view businesses, especially corporations, as exploitative entities taking advantage of human suffering and even engineering the Great Recession. Thus, increased government intervention is necessary to “tame” the marketplace. Some consider the recent re-election of President Obama a vindication of this perspective. John Mackey, Co-CEO of Whole Foods, courageously shares an opposing view in his latest book, Conscious Capitalism, co-authored by Rajendra Sisodia. “We paint business for what it truly is: heroic,” said Mackey at a recent Cato event. “Business is the greatest value creator in the...

Yesterday as we learned from Secretary Panetta and General Dempsey that we did “everything possible” even though neither BO nor Hills were kept appraised of the attack on our consulate in Benghazi.  Apparently nobody in news central found that odd, as the evening’s newscasts, podcasts, posts and tweets were preoccupied with other critical issues. Most were busy communicating dire warnings and hand-wringing over the impending blizzard in New England. Because it’s winter, and these folks have never seen a blizzard before. Not one like this anyway. Oh, and the manhunt in...

    President Barack Obama nominated Thursday an openly gay attorney to serve on the U.S. appeals court for patent cases after a previous gay nominee for that court stalled. Todd Hughes, a lawyer in the Department of Justice’s civil division, was nominated for the Federal U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. He would be the first openly gay circuit judge in the country if confirmed. The Federal Circuit hears patent appeals from around the country, including high stakes cases like Apple Inc’s smartphone battle against Samsung Electronics Co Ltd. Its docket also includes trademark cases and some claims against the federal government....

    Respect for private property at riskAt least you have to give President Obama high marks for creativity in his latest attempt to curtail freedom and individual rights. Specifically, I’m talking about Mr. Obama’s assault on private property rights through the abuse of the Endangered Species Act. I strongly support protecting endangered species. No one I know wants to see a species go anywhere near extinction. The far-left environmentalists in the Obama administration, however, have gone way beyond this by settling litigation with their allies in environmental groups behind closed doors. Through these secret settlements, they are advancing a much more...

    A top secret CIA base in Saudi Arabia where lethal drones strikes have been launched from has been exposed on internet search giant Bing, it was claimed today. A blogger has spotted an unmarked facility that has runways, hangars and what appear to be living quarters and offices buried deep in the desert. It follows claims by the New York Times that it had revealed the CIA uses a base in Saudi Arabia to target Al Qaeda operatives in neighbouring Yemen. It was from this base that the American-born operative Anwar al-Awlaki was killed in 2011.
