    Reports are coming out that Israel targeted and killed the notorious child murderer Samir Kuntar today (Wednesday). According to the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the Israel Air Force struck a vehicle carrying five fighters loyal to dictator Bashar al-Assad. Three of the passengers were from the Syrian People's Committees, while Kuntar and the fifth person belonged to Lebanese terror group Hezbollah. Kuntar was born in Lebanon to a Druze family. In 1978 he and three other terrorists from the now-defunct Palestine Liberation Front (PLF) snuck into Israel by boat and attempted to kidnap the Haran family from their...

    Obama quietly eliminated the NATIONAL DRUG INTELLIGENCE CENTER, that was monitoring terrorist activity on the border. Mexican cartel violence is at an all-time high along the increasingly porous southern border yet the Obama Administration has shut down a critical intelligence agency dedicated to identifying, tracking and severing the nexus between drug trafficking and terrorism. It’s a senseless move, which is why it was done very quietly. The only real way to discover that the Justice Department’s 19-year-old National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) has been closed is by trying to visit its website. It simply says that on June 15, 2012,...

    This week, “Fox & Friends,” Fox News Channel’s nationally broadcast morning show, interviewed Pacific Legal Foundation client Bob Slobe, a Sacramento businessman who is barred from using his own property because of oppressive and unjustified federal environmental regulations. The case is Yolo County Farm Bureau v. United States Fish and Wildlife Service. Watch the interview. Says PLF attorney Brandon Middleton: “California’s unemployment is the highest in decades, and Bob Slobe wants to put people to work, building an office structure on his Sacramento property.

    PLF and Iowa Citizen (Former Combat Medic) Challenge Federal Health Care MandateSource: Pacific Legal Foundation Monday July 26, 2010, 1:32 pm EDT WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The new federal health care law violates the Constitution’s Commerce Clause by ordering individual citizens to buy a good or service (health insurance) on pain of financial punishment. So argues a lawsuit, just filed in U.S. District Court in Washington D.C., by attorneys with Pacific Legal Foundation.

    Anti-affirmative action advocate Ward Connerly and a Sacramento-based legal foundation today blasted Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and President Barack Obama's administration for a recently-enacted California Department of Transportation policy that awards contracts based on a race- and gender-based quota system. The Pacific Legal Foundation, an individual rights and limited government watchdog group, said that it is filing a lawsuit today against Caltrans on behalf of Associated General Contractors of America to reverse the department's mandate that 6.75 percent of contracts receiving federal money go to women, African Americans, Asian-Pacific Americans and Native Americans. The foundation says that the policy violates federal...

    March 24, 2008, 5:00 a.m. Chilling ConfirmationYes, Saddam Hussein was an Islamofascist threat. By Deroy Murdock As Operation Iraqi Freedom is now five years old, a new study confirms that ousting Saddam Hussein was justified and vital to U.S. national security. Though war critics hate to admit it, the Baathist dictator was up to his mustache in aid for Islamofascist terrorism. As a report from the Institute for Defense Analyses explains, “captured Iraqi documents uncovered strong evidence that links the regime of Saddam Hussein to regional and global terrorism.” IDA’s review of some 600,000 documents discovered in Iraq since...

    Four Flagstaff residents on Wednesday sued the city in what is regarded as a test case of enforcement of a sweeping property-rights law approved by Arizona voters last year. The lawsuit claims that a special historical designation approved by the city diminished property values, in one case by preventing a resident from making a planned addition to the house he bought in 2006. The other plaintiffs also live in the same neighborhood covered by the historical designation and claimed similar damages because of rules imposing height limits and other construction restrictions. The lawsuit, filed in Coconino County Superior Court in...

    Property rights at issue CARLSBAD – A property-rights group has sued the city, claiming it requires property owners to give up their right to vote on forming an assessment district in return for obtaining a permit to improve their property and waive development fees. However, the city attorney said the lawsuit misses the point that development is a privilege and that the city has a right to place conditions on it. The lawsuit, filed Monday in San Diego federal court by the Pacific Legal Foundation on behalf of Craig and Robin Griswold, focuses on a city ordinance that requires owners...

  • Out of Control: Victory over California Pension Bonds

    Last year California's leaders made the absurd decision to float bonds to pay for obiligated payments into the state pension fund. Yes, borrowing to pay operating costs--in this case for pension investments. Kinda like using your credit card to pay for buying stocks. This stupidity is widespread at the state and local level in recent years. Today the Pacific Legal Foundation announced the courts invalidated the bonds because the state consitution requires a public vote for large bond issues, and Gov. Schwarzenegger tried to skirt around that. The court did not call bullshit on the idea of pension bonds themselves--not...

That decision breaks the Social Compact that gives government its legitimacy and opened a new era when the rich and powerful can use government to seize the property of ordinary citizens for private gain.

    If voters reject bond, 'chaos' may not ensue -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Davis package would act as fallback if court upholds it By Ed Mendel STAFF WRITER January 24, 2004 SACRAMENTO – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger may have a problem as he launches a full-scale campaign to overcome voter skepticism about a $15 billion fiscal-recovery bond measure on the March 2 ballot. It's not entirely clear that voter rejection of Proposition 57 will, as the governor has warned, result in "economic chaos," "Armageddon cuts" in services, or leave no choice but to "drastically increase taxes." If the governor's bond is rejected, the state simply...

    Governor Schwarzenegger's well-delivered State of the State speech last week won accolades from observers worldwide. The Los Angeles Times went so far as to call it "masterful." But despite the media hordes and the expected references to the governor's illustrious film career, the stage is far from set for a Hollywood ending when it comes to California's looming budget disaster. If the $15-billion bond measure the governor succeeded in putting on the March ballot is not passed by California voters, the state could face bankruptcy as early as June. Behind the scenes, the governor is advancing what he appears to...
