    NOGALES, Ariz. – A Mexican teenager who threw rocks at Border Patrol agents in the Arizona city of Nogales died early Wednesday, but the manner of death is now in dispute. A Mexican official said 17-year-old Ramses Barron Torres died after he fell from a border fence and hit his head on a rock. But state police in Sonora, across the border from Arizona, said companions of the Barron Torres claim he was shot by a U.S. Border Patrol agent. Calls to Border Patrol officials weren't immediately returned Wednesday night. An FBI spokesman declined to release details of the investigation....

    In remarks made yesterday during the signing of Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, First Lady Michelle Obama regarding deciding what children ought to eat, “We can’t just leave it up to the parents.” She went on to say: I think that parents have a right to expect that their efforts at home won’t be undone each day in the school cafeteria or in the vending machine in the hallway. I think that our parents have a right to expect that their kids will be served fresh, healthy food that meets high nutritional standards. First off, yes we can just leave it...

    American Thinker ^ | 11/19/2010 | Steve McCann
    Ireland, a country to which nearly 40 million Americans can trace their ancestry, is on the brink of insolvency and a loss of sovereignty.    In the 1990s and the early part of this decade, Ireland's growth rate had earned it the nickname of "the Celtic Tiger." Supported by EU budget assistance, low corporate tax rates, and a labor force boosted by a spike in the working-age population, it became a key European location for U.S. foreign investment. The economic story of the 1990s was largely about export growth, but the growth of the mid-2000s, by contrast, was driven by...

    A rift opened up in the coalition tonight after the Liberal Democrats accused the Tories of pandering to "populist and nationalist" sentiment over plans to subject any future transfer of sovereignty to Brussels to a referendum. Andrew Duff, an ally of Nick Clegg and the leader of the Lib Dems in the European parliament, rounded on a parliamentary bill which includes a "referendum lock" for any transfer of sovereignty. Duff said: "The move seems to be calculated to appeal to a populist and nationalist constituency which undoubtedly exists in the UK. But referenda will surely weaken the powers of Westminster...

    Since the beginnings of our country, the 2 November 2010 election cycle is the most important in our nation’s history. To be sure, there have been other times in said history that were perilous; most notably under the progressive (a.k.a. leftist, Marxist, fascist) reins and reigns of Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jimmy Carter and even Teddy Roosevelt. During their respective presidencies (especially under Wilson who created the Committee on Public Information [CPI] our nations’ first true ministry of propaganda--one which would prove to be [amongst other Wilson offerings] an inspiration to then burgeoning Nazi Germany).

From day one of this administration, the goal has been to "transform the United States of America" into a socialist-like system in which formerly-free people must get government's permission to exercise their liberty or pursue their happiness. Another measure that makes Democrats drool is the Clean Water Restoration Act (S-787). This bill would give to the federal government jurisdiction over every drop...

Lewis sounds the alarm for states’ rights and offers a way out of the constitutional malaise the nation finds itself in. And, if...

    The pre-eminence of the British Parliament in deciding national law will be placed on the statute book for the first time, Foreign Secretary William Hague said today. - The move will not alter the existing relationship between British and European Union law, but it will make it explicitly clear that EU directives take effect in the UK only by the will of Parliament, which can be withdrawn at any time. At present, the principle of parliamentary sovereignty is enshrined in Common Law. As the UK has no written constitution, it has not – unlike other EU members including Germany –...

    In a classic case of misdirection, while the media are preoccupied with the fate of the Bush tax cuts, President Obama is preparing to attend a United Nations summit next week to endorse “innovative finance mechanisms”—global taxes—to drain even more wealth out of the U.S. economy. A draft “outcome document” produced in advance of the September 20-22 U.N. Summit on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) commits the nations of the world to supporting “innovative financing mechanisms” to supplement foreign aid spending. The term “innovative financing mechanisms” is a U.N. euphemism for global taxes. But the document actually goes further, praising...

The footpaths that could easily guide illegal immigrants and smugglers across the Rio Grande without getting wet seem to be there because of what amounts to federal linguistics. While just about anyone would call them bridges, the U.S.-Mexico group that owns them calls them something else. "Technically speaking it's not a bridge, it's a grade control structure," said Sally Spener,...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Missouri voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a key provision of President Barack Obama's health care law, sending a clear message of discontent to Washington and Democrats less than 100 days before the midterm elections. With about 70 percent of the vote counted late Tuesday, nearly three-quarters of voters threw their support behind a ballot measure, Proposition C, that would prohibit the government from requiring people to have health insurance or from penalizing them for not having it. That would conflict with a federal requirement that most people have health insurance or face penalties starting in 2014.

The Missouri proposition passed the Senate on May 4th by a 26-8 vote, and the House on May 11th by 108-47 vote. Today, voters approved Prop C by a wide margin – early returns...

With both Democrats and Republicans supporting some form of amnesty, the November election cycle is not likely to change anything regarding our current pathway to self destruction.

This definition of the concept of sovereignty emerged along with the nation-state. The nation-state hasn't always existed. Everyone tends to see the circumstances of their own times as the static normality of history. And contrary to the endless lectures of History teachers tied to politically correct text books and standardized tests, History is not static it's dynamic, it changes every day. The concept of the nation-state emerged in the sixteenth century evolving from countries as the private...

    The Department of Health and Human Services has finally released its controversial report on the costs that will surround the recently passed Obamacare legislation and questions are being asked as to why it was not released earlier, when it might have made a difference during the health care debate. The simple answer is that the report would only further damage a bill that passed by the thinnest of margins and with the most questionable of means.

    Sovereignty - Three Critical Questions for Political CandidatesAll tests which the Obamunists fail -- and so do many Republicans. Please share this with leaders of the electoral action organization of your choice. In addition to asking a candidate whether he or she is pro-life, for restoring constitutional government, for cutting budgets and taxes, for protecting our borders, how he interprets the 1st and 2nd Amendments, etc., these questions must be asked our political candidates: Are you a member of any organizations supporting globalist, transnationalist, or communitarian ends, or have you received money or services from them? Do you pledge...

    The Missouri Health Care Freedom Act passed it's final legislative hurdle in the Missouri House today. The bill SS SCS HCS HB 1764 was a compromise bill coming out of a Joint Senate and House Conference Committee after the Missouri Senate passed it's own Version of SS SCR25, The Health Care Freedom Act, last week. The Missouri Senate substitute bill changed the language of the bill, taking it to a vote of the people as a change in state statute, as opposed to the passed House Version that took the vote to the people of Missouri as a Constitutional Amendment....

    Tea party activists said there were at least 100 convention delegates from one group, the Maine Patriots, as well as an unknown number from another group, Maine Refounders. Support for the new platform was fairly overwhelming, well beyond what could be attributed to the tea party alone. Efforts to table it were stomped, and it passed handily.

    This is the year of the Tea Party Rebellion. This is the year that we finally begin taking back our beloved country and returning to constitutionally limited self-government. Our country was founded on the self-evident truth that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are the rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness! Our central government has expanded itself way beyond the 17 enumerated powers that our Founders delegated to it in the constitution (Article I, Section 8) and has been on a crusade for a century or...

    Today I met several others from our Tea Party group at the Capital in Jefferson City for the Health Care Freedom Act SJR25 Code Blue" Rally. At approximately 9:30 am many vehicles started circling the Capital Complex, honking their horns. The vehicles had signs and banners, were pulling trailers, admonishing the Missouri Senate for allowing a filibuster to continue on SJR 25. They certainly gathered much attention from all around the capital, and inside as even committee meetings went to the windows to view the entourage of Patriot inspired vehicles. At 10am the Senate convened. The Senate Gallery was full...

    The Convention on the Rights of the Child, an international treaty commonly referred to as CRC, is one of the greatest threats to parental rights our country has ever witnessed. Fasten your seatbelts for the fight for ratification. The CRC’s devastating impact on American children and their families can be seen easily in the text of the treaty and its application in both foreign states and in recent U.S. court decisions. Do not be misled by the arguments of American legislators, legal scholars and transnationalists who say U.S. ratification of the CRC would prove our commitment to the protection of...

    Is the Immigration Bill Unconstitutional? Many “progressive” opponents of the Arizona immigration law are arguing that it's unconstitutional because foreign affairs is exclusively the province of the federal government. That foreign affairs is exclusively the province of the federal government is commonly asserted. But it is a myth – at least if one respects the Constitution’s text and original understanding. Before explaining why, I have to say that a claim that the Constitution reserves powers exclusively for one level of government is an unusual argument for “progressives” to make. In general, of course, the most vocal “progressives” could care less...
