    Jeremy Trentelman’s cardboard fort for his kids came with windows, trap doors and a green slide. Then the city of Ogden, Utah, gave him 15 days to take it down. With the help of their kids Max, 3, and Story, 2, Trentelman and his wife, Dee, cut and taped the cardboard to build two towers, trap doors, tunnels, and a slide. They built the whole thing last week with the help of their friend, Byron Owens, and his two kids Satoria and Oliver in Ogden, Utah. His friend’s daughter also wrote a sign on the door of the fort reading,...

    Documents obtained by CBS News show that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) discussed using their covert operation "Fast and Furious" to argue for controversial new rules about gun sales. PICTURES: ATF "Gunwalking" scandal timeline In Fast and Furious, ATF secretly encouraged gun dealers to sell to suspected traffickers for Mexican drug cartels to go after the "big fish." But ATF whistleblowers told CBS News and Congress it was a dangerous practice called "gunwalking," and it put thousands of weapons on the street. Many were used in violent crimes in Mexico. Two were found at the murder...

    OGDEN — A group calling itself "Keep the Peace" blames police tactics used in the war on drugs for the home raid and exchange of gunfire Jan. 4 that led to the death of Ogden police officer Jared Francom. A group of nearly 100 people held a press conference at the Weber County Library Thursday night, calling on the Ogden City Council to withdraw from the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force, and called for the electoral defeat of Weber County Attorney Dee Smith, who is running for Utah attorney general as a Democrat.

Deputy Attorney General David W. Ogden will return to private practice in February. White House General Counsel Greg Craig will step down in January, and Phillip Carter, a top Defense Department deputy assistant secretary dealing with detainee issues, has already left. Ogden, who managed the civil division during the Clinton administration, headed up President Barack Obama’s transition into office last year. In a statement, Ogden said that his tenure in the...

    Under President Obama, it was expected that porn pushers might find a sympathetic ear, given the smut industry's generous support of liberal politicians and causes. But the fox is no longer circling the henhouse. He's made it inside. On March 12, the "world's greatest deliberative body," the U.S. Senate, voted 65 to 28 to elevate porn attorney David Ogden to be deputy attorney general. Eleven senators from the "Party of Family Values" (Lamar Alexander, Kit Bond, Susan Collins, Lindsey Graham, Judd Gregg, Jon Kyl, Richard Lugar, presidential nominee John McCain, Olympia Snowe, Arlen Specter and George Voinovich) joined a nearly...

    The U.S. Senate has approved the nomination of David Ogden as the number-two man at the U.S. Justice Department. Many pro-family groups voiced loud objections to Ogden, who has a history of supporting homosexuality, pornography, and abortion in court. Pat Trueman is a former Justice Department official and pornography prosecutor. "[Ogden] was picked for a reason, and that's because of his radical agenda," Trueman asserts. "I don't think President Obama picked him because he's going to help pornographers. I think he picked him because he's a radical attorney who's going to radicalize the Justice Department."

    The Senate Judiciary committee has prolonged the decision-making process in regard to ratifying David W. Ogden as Obama's pick for deputy attorney general. The Senate was expected to have voted on Ogden after a committee hearing last week, but the vote has been delayed until after the Senate's recess next week. Ogden is considered a controversial pick for the office, due to the fact that he represented several media groups to challenge provisions of the Child Protection and Obscenity Enforcement Act of 1988 and the Child Protection Restoration and Penalties Enhancement Act of 1990. He has argued that requiring the...

Remember, these are the people who claim to be the libertarian wing of the party.” Clearly, this “Charles,” confuses liberalism with...
