    Since the topic of "comprehensive immigration reform" has begun to bubble up again in the Senate, being mentioned by Chuck Schumer and John McCain within a few days of each other, I wanted to open a few questions for discussion. First: We have a complete legal framework to govern immigration. These are the People's laws, passed by our representatives in Congress assembled and signed by Presidents from Truman to Bush. This set of laws is presumptively legitimate, under our sovereign authority. Reformers refer to this system of valid laws originating from We the People as "broken". Question: What is broken...

    She kept a Colt .38-caliber revolver close, while he preferred a .45-caliber pistol from the same maker. But neither weapon was enough to save American outlaws and lovers Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow during a 1934 ambush by law enforcement officers. After the duo was dead, authorities recovered the revolver Bonnie had secured to an inner thigh with white medical tape. They also seized the handgun Clyde had tucked into his waistband. Nearly 80 years later, those guns and other items connected to the infamous gangsters will be going up for auction in New Hampshire on Sept. 30. An auction...

    WASHINGTON -- In the mid-1980s, while covering most of the developing world, I began to realize something was happening that seemed, at least at the time, counter to the common wisdom. My American generation of post-World War II optimists had simply assumed that nations as we knew them would naturally hold together. They would brook their problems, but their coherence as organized, civilized societies and states would remain; progress was inevitable for all human beings. But suddenly I saw, to the contrary, that many countries we had expected would continue to "work" were instead beginning to disintegrate. Our blithe, too-casual...

    Kenya outlaws opposition rallies Kenya's government has banned opposition rallies and dismissed calls for new elections, days after voters rejected a new constitution. Vice-President Moody Awori said demonstrations supporting calls for elections would be seen as a "threat to national security". His warning follows Saturday's rally in the capital Nairobi celebrating the victory of the referendum "No" vote. The opposition had said the draft gave too many powers to the president. Mr Awori said in a statement that opposition calls for nationwide protests were "inappropriate". He said the rejection of the constitutional reforms were not grounds for new elections. "The...

Just last week in Arizona, an American was forced to surrender his land to illegal aliens who claimed he had assaulted them.

  • Navajo Nation outlaws uranium mining

    WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) - The Navajo Nation has outlawed uranium mining and processing on its reservation, which sprawls across parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah and contains one of the world's largest deposits of uranium ore. Tribal President Joe Shirley Jr. must give the bill final approval. His spokesman said Thursday that Shirley "strongly" supports it. Mining companies began blasting holes on the reservation, which covers 27,000 square miles, in the 1940s and continued for nearly 40 years until decreased demand closed the operations. By then, the Navajos were left with radiation sickness, contaminated tailings and abandoned mines....

    In Hollywood, outlaws are either gunned down by lawmen, like Gary Cooper's character in "High Noon," or are portrayed as anti-heroes, like Robert Redford and Paul Newman's characters in "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." But in the real world, the bad guys are truly wicked, say brothers John and Robert Waters, and the sheriff isn't always around to stop them. In fact, some of the most notorious outlaws in history were killed or captured by ordinary citizens. "You see all these movies and stuff about the heroic sheriff who runs the outlaws out of town, but you don't see...

    MONTREAL (CP) - In what one lawyer called a legal precedent in Canada, a jury convicted nine Hells Angels and associates on gangsterism charges Monday and found them guilty on 26 out of a total of 27 criminal charges. The accused, who were arrested in a major police crackdown on biker gangs in 2001, each faced three charges - gangsterism, drug trafficking and conspiracy to commit murder. Eight of the men were convicted on all three counts, while the ninth was acquitted of the murder charge. Crown prosecutor Madeleine Giauque praised the jurors, who heard about 125 days of testimony...
