    Business Insider ^ | 10/09/15 | Jeremy Bender
    A Saudi Arabian official has reportedly disclosed that the Sunni kingdom sent Syrian rebels a new batch of one of the most effective weapons for battling against the Assad regime this week. BBC correspondent Frank Gardner tweeted that a Saudi official confirmed the delivery of 500 TOW antitank missiles to the Free Syrian Army (FSA). The FSA is currently being squeezed from all directions by the Syrian military, Russian airstrikes, and competition from jihadist fighters, including ISIS. The delivery of the TOW missiles — which have also been provided by the CIA — will increase the capabilities of the FSA...

    In the ongoing legal battle by Alan Gura to force the District of Columbia City Council to respect the second amendment of the Constitution, a request that the City government be held in contempt was file on Tuesday, the 18th of November, 2014.  It seems to come as a response to the city claiming that the Court lacked jurisdiction, because no request for a finding of contempt was fired. Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr gave the DC government until the 4th of December, and Gura's reply by the 11th of December.  From TEXT SCHEDULING ORDER: regarding the #...

    Legal Carry in D.C., for a Brief Period In July, Judge Frederick Scullin Jr.  ruled that the District of Columbia's ban on the carry of weapons outside the home for self defense was unconstitutional under the second amendment.  For a brief few days, the second amendment was respected in the District of Columbia.   The judge granted a stay until 22 October, for the  D.C. government to pass a new law that would meet constitutional requirements.

    There have been rumors flying about on what Alan Gura has agreed to on a stay on the Palmer v. D.C. case.   These were fueled in part by the wording in the District's request for a stay, which originally claimed that it was unopposed.  According to Alan Gura on his blog, that is not the case: I have a better understanding of what the city will now do. The city will probably file an appeal — that’s within their right. The city would ask for a stay pending the resolution of the appeal — they can ask for that,...

    In the aftermath of the radical Islamo-Communist terror bombing of Boston, and a subsequent spate of near misses and evacuations across the country, it is appropriate to look back and consider the measures that were taken in similar circumstances in 1919 by A. Mitchell Palmer, the liberal Democratic Quaker Pacifist Attorney General who served in the liberal Democratic administration of President Woodrow Wilson. Following the 1917 Bolshevik coup in Russia, pro-Soviet anarchists launched a campaign of bombing and assassination against American officials, judges, and prominent citizens. On August 20, 1918, Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin issued a fatwa against the United...

Israeli media outlets which have given significant coverage to recent Jewish “price tag” activity, particularly a terror orphan’s vandalism of the Rabin memorial, failed to even report the incident.

    "Yesterday I broadcast from the Manchester Theater at the University of San Diego. In the course of the program, I received this e-mail: "Hugh, because it is the Marine Corps birthday today, and because I heard that you are broadcasting live from USD, I wanted to let you know that USD lost one of its alumni on April 8th of this year, in Fallujah. His name was 1st Lt. Joshua Palmer. It would be great if you could somehow remind the students that they've lost one of their own over there, especially today, and especially before veterans day. Josh loved...

    The American Civil Liberties Union filed a federal lawsuit Friday against a Colorado Springs high school for refusing to recognize a club that includes gays. The lawsuit said the school has repeatedly refused to recognize the Palmer High Gay-Straight Alliance. As a result, the group may not meet on school property on the same terms as other groups, cannot post club information at the school and is omitted from the school's yearbook. Mark Silverstein, legal director of the Colorado ACLU, said similar clubs are operating at 50 high schools in Colorado, and that federal law requires schools to grant equal...

    AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - The last 18 holes will be the toughest for Arnold Palmer. And it has nothing to do with the state of his golf game. After 48 years, Palmer is saying goodbye to the Masters with a final round Friday that promises to be filled with tears on both sides of the ropes. Palmer will shed them because he can no longer compete in a tournament where his mere presence once dominated. His fans will choke up even as they cheer because it's the end of a once magical era. "It will be emotional," Palmer said. "But,...
