    Should Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Al. (C, 78%) be appointed attorney general in president-elect Donald Trump’s administration, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley (R) will need to appoint a short-term replacement to serve in the U.S. Senate and set a date for a statewide special election to fill the seat.

    Things just keep getting worse for Oculus. A day after revelations that founder Palmer Luckey has allegedly been funding a pro-Trump/anti-Hillary "sh**posting" meme factory, a number of of virtual reality developers are expressing anger at, or saying they will boycott, the Facebook-owned Oculus unless Luckey resigns. "Insomniac Games condemns all forms of hate speech," Motherboard quoted the console games maker as saying. "While everyone has a right to express his or her political opinion, the behavior and sentiments reported do not reflect the values of our company. We are also confident that this behavior and sentiment does not reflect the...

    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...

    On Thursday, 11 December, Alan Gura replied to the D.C. government arguments that they should not be held in contempt in the case of Palmer v. D.C.   The reply is 24 pages of double spaced legal argument.  It is well organized and clearly argued.  As GTOGUNNER noted on the mdshooters.forum: In reality, win or lose this case, surely from my POV, it won't be do to a sucky Attorney. To give you the flavor of Alan Gura's reply, I have quoted a small selection of his points.  Here is a link to Gura's entire reply in a pdf file...

    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 us.archive.org: 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. The D.C. government passed a new law, one of the most restrictive in the nation, that Alan Gura, counsel for the plaintiff's, characterized...

    Palmer casts Dr. Ralph Alvarado as drug dealer in negative campaign ad using spliced courtroom footage In perhaps the nastiest ad of the 2014 Kentucky electoral season, state Sen. R.J. Palmer’s campaign portrays his Republican opponent, Dr. Ralph Alvarado, essentially as a drug dealer. ... Transcript: Judge: What’s he on? Police officer: OxyContin. Judge: Where’s it from? Defendant: Dr. Ralph Alvarado… Judge: The one running for state senator? Judge: Oh my Lord. The ad then features a narrator declaring it’s “No wonder Dr. Ralph Alvarado called Kentucky’s pill mill law a ‘lousy piece of legislation.’ He’s getting rich off addiction.”...

    In July of 2014, the ban on carrying guns outside the home in the District of Columbia was struck down as violating the second amendment of the Constitution.   The judge granted a stay to the District government.  In September, the District government passed emergency legislation that it claimed would meet Judge Scullin's requirements for a constitutional law.   The law contained numerous absurd restrictions.   On 2 October, Alan Gura filed a motion asking that the court block the implementation of the emergency law.  From wamu.org: In a blistering court filing, attorney Alan Gura argues that the Council's bill — which limits...

    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,...

    On May 6th, about six months after Alan Gura filed a petition for a writ of mandamus in the long delayed Palmer v. District of Columbia case, he filed for a renewal of the writ. The Palmer case is a basic right to carry case against the District of Columbia, which is the only jurisdiction in the United States that categorically denies any legal ability to carry a firearm outside of the home for legal self defense.  The case was originally filed on August 6th, 2009, so the case has been pending for nearly five years; an incredible delay...

    The nation’s capital is the only place in America where no one is allowed to exercise his right to bear arms. This is clearly unconstitutional, but the courts have thrown up repeated roadblocks to delay the law getting overturned for more than four years. The federal appeals court now will decide if this delay can continue. SEE ALSO: MILLER: D.C. businessman faces two years in jail for unregistered ammunition, brass casing On Tuesday, attorney Alan Gura petitioned for a writ of mandamus to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia on behalf of the plaintiffs to...

    After the historic decision where the Supreme Court affirmed that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms applied to individuals in the Heller decision, the victorious attorney Alan Gura filed another suit in the District of Columbia.   The object of this lawsuit was simple: Require the D.C. government to allow a person to carry a handgun for defense outside of the home. From the The Washington Times: The lawsuit argues that the District’s “laws, customs, practices and policies generally banning the carrying of handguns in public violate the Second Amendment” of the U.S. Constitution. It asks 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...

    Palestinian Authority resident terrorist Wael Salaman Mohammed el-Arjeh, of Hevron, has been convicted of two counts of murder in the deaths of Asher and Yonatan Palmer. He will be sentenced in the upcoming days. Arjeh is facing life in prison. Arjeh took part in an attack in which large stones were hurled at the Palmers’ car. A stone hit Asher Palmer, who was driving, in the face. The injured Palmer lost control of the car, possibly after losing consciousness, resulting in a crash in which both he and baby Yonatan were killed. Yonatan was two days shy of his first...
