  • Massachusetts Introduces Gun Registry Legislation, Would Also Ban Private Sales

    Massachusetts: House Speaker Introduces Sweeping Gun Control Legislation Your immediate help is needed to defeat this heinous anti-gun bill This week, Massachusetts House Speaker Robert DeLeo (D-Winthrop) unveiled an extensive gun control bill, House Bill 4121, which would further impact law-abiding gun owners in the Commonwealth. Being promoted as legislation aimed to be outgoing Governor Deval Patrick’s (D) crowning achievement, this egregious bill would give police chiefs discretion in licensing owners for shotguns and rifles, ban the private sale of firearms without a licensed gun dealer and require gun owners to provide a list of all firearms they currently own...

    Rodman Brings Bread and Circuses to Pyongyang 8:16 AM, Jan 7, 2014 • By DENNIS P. HALPIN .... The bread being brought by Rodman to accompany the circus is allegedly in the form of luxury birthday gifts for the North Korean dictator and his wife. Rodman seems oblivous to North Korea’s near starvation of its people, human rights atrocities, gulags, and nuclear and missile adventurism, and appears equally unconcerned that providing Pyongyang with any luxury goods is a violation of the sanctions imposed by United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution 2094, adopted on March 7, 2013, and previous resolutions .....

    WASHINGTON – Reports of the Russian government abusing its gay citizens are based upon false propaganda by gay rights groups in the United States, Austin Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, claimed at a Nov. 15 symposium hosted by The Howard Center for Family, Religion & Society. "Please understand what's really going on in Russia and cast aside all of the propaganda that you hear in the United States and elsewhere. It's just not true," Ruse urged.

Disregarding for a moment that Chief Charlie Beck once more trotted out an inert tube and presented it as an active rocket launcher to awe the “Authorized Journalists” who don’t know any better (and it still hasn’t been established if it’s the same one he trotted out at a previous photo op), disregarding that Beck himself is armed and men under his command routinely deploy with firearms he describes as “weapons of war, weapons of death [that]...

Since it is too early to predict the nationality of the armed invaders, we will assume they are British as Al Jazeera speculates, because otherwise Congress is about to find itself in an unprecedented scandal for completely ignoring its duty to impose the War Powers Act, which in turn would mean that...

    Harry Reid’s victory over Sharron Angle this past Tuesday may have had a great deal to do with the senator’s campaign breaking not only federal campaign law, but, just to make things worse, criminal law also. According to the Justice Department itself, as recently as this past Friday, it is currently looking over a complaint that Angle’s lawyer has filed, demanding that Reid be investigated for what appears to be coordination between his campaign and a corporation, Harrah’s casino in Las Vegas. The complaint is based on damning e-mails that were exchanged between executives at Harrah’s casino and a staffer...

    This week, the FCC Chairman, Julius Genachowski, from many and various sources intends to change the classification of the Internet from Title I, which is an information utility, to Title II telecommunication's utility. The new reclassification will allow the Title II regulatory authority to enforce Net Neutrality. At this time is doesn't quite make a whole, more like a half change. The agency will not be enforcing the regulations to the fullest of extent, against broadband providers, immediately, though, it seems odd that the push would be to re-title, in order to enforce at some future point. Oddly enough, by...

    The media gave President Obama credit during the campaign for promising not to raise taxes on the middle class. He was on the trail in New Hampshire when he made a "firm pledge" not to raise taxes on any family "making less than $250,000 a year." Obama is doing his best to break that promise, but the network news media haven't bothered to report it. On Nov. 6 when he endorsed the tax increase-laden health care reform bill that the House of Representatives passed on Nov. 7, Obama violated his pledge.

A Pennsylvania judge previously ruled that court-appointed poll watchers could be NOT removed from their boards by an on-site election judge, but that is exactly what is happening, according to sources on the ground. It is the duty of election board workers to monitor and guard the integrity of the voting process. Denying access to the minority (in this case Republican) poll watchers and inspectors is a violation of Pennsylvania state law. Those who...

    A US campaign watchdog has accused presumptive Republican president nominee John McCain of violating election laws by accepting campaign contributions from two prominent Londoners. At issue is a fundraising luncheon held in March at London's Spencer House, during McCain's swing through the United Kingdom. An invitation to the event lists Lord Rothschild and Nathaniel Rothschild as hosts, and indicates the event was made possible with their "kind permission". Judicial Watch, a Washington organisation instrumental in the March release of Hillary Clinton's White House schedules, has asked US election monitors to investigate whether the Rothschilds improperly sponsored the fundraiser.

Some who now complain about Guantanamo had a key hand in making it necessary. Newsweek's retraction of its story on the alleged flushing of pages from the Quran down a Guantanamo commode has not dissuaded critics convinced that Guantanamo is, as Amnesty International put it, a modern-day "gulag." One of those who believe the human rights of prisoners at Guantanamo are being violated is former President Carter. Speaking in September 2003, two short years after 9-11, he opined as to how...

    In violation of its promises to faculty of academic freedom and due process, DePaul University has suspended Professor Thomas Klocek without a hearing for engaging in a controversial out-of-class debate with students. After Professor Klocek and several pro-Palestinian students engaged in a heated argument over Middle East issues at a student activities fair, students complained to administrators who immediately suspended the professor, denying him the rights normally afforded to professors accused of wrongdoing. Statements from university administrators indicate that the professor was disciplined because of his harsh criticism of the students’ viewpoint. For full details, please read below.

    When the issue of judicial activism comes across the public screen, most people automatically think of judges who violate the Constitution by imposing their personal, ideological agendas on every citizen, regardless of the majority's beliefs or interests. But there is another form of judicial activism, one that Congress created, that has been displacing representative government at an alarming rate. This loss of self-rule has come in the form of mandates passed by Congress over the last three decades which drastically affect our state and local governments. In their recently published book, "Democracy by Decree: What Happens When Courts Run the...

    Last week I posted some of Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid's ethics problems. Today it looks like House Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi has joined the fray. According to the National Legal and Policy Center: The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has fined two leadership PACs associated with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in response to a Complaint filed by the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) on October 25, 2002. The FEC also has fined three campaigns that failed to return excessive contributions from Pelosi’s PACs within 60 days, as required by law. Under conciliation agreements reached with the FEC,...

    Maryland politics has been roiled for the last couple of weeks by the resignation of Joseph Steffen, a former aide to Governor Robert Ehrlich who had to resign for spreading rumors alleging that Baltimore Mayor Martin O’Malley had an affair with a former WBAL-TV anchor now in New York and got her pregnant. Mayor O’Malley has denied having any affairs and Governor Ehrlich has denied any involvement in Steffen’s activities. Which one you believe seemingly depends on your partisan affiliation. For now, I believe them both. No evidence has come to light which establishes either that O’Malley has cheated on...

    INDULGE me in a momentary historical fantasy. Suppose that Roger Brooke Taney had not gone down in American history as the principal author of what is now almost universally acknowledged as the worst decision in the history of American jurisprudence, Dred Scott vs. Sandford in 1857. Suppose the country had been shaped in the image of Chief Justice Taney's decision, which decreed that slaves could be carried anywhere in the union, and that Negroes could not be citizens under the Constitution, for they were ""regarded as being of an inferior order and altogether unfit to associate with the white race...

    New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) has long been rumored as desperately seeking the democratic nomination for president in 2008. And while many political observers fully expect the power hungry former First Lady to hit the campaign trail within only a few months of being re-elected as a US Senator in 2006, US News & World report claims to have a confirmation of sorts. From USNews.Com's Washington Whispers: Hillary's in… You don't have to take it from us about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton 's desire to run for president.

    On July 9, 2004, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled that Israel's security barrier was a violation of international humanitarian law and human rights law. Eleven days later, the United Nations General Assembly voted 150-6 to condemn Israel and demand removal of the barrier. All twenty-five members of the European Union supported the motion.[1] The EU position would not have been so offensive had it not then undertaken an act of stunning hypocrisy. In August 2004, the EU put out tenders for companies to construct a European separation fence to prevent migration into the EU from countries excluded from...

    Self, Dr. Dean Edell show | October 31, 2004 | Marktwain
    Dr. Dean Edell, nationally syndicated radio talk show host and medical doctor, created his own "October Surprise" on the 29th of October, 2004. Dr. Edell highlighted the now discredited Lancet article which claimed that 98,000 civilians had been killed in Iraq since the invasion of March, 2003. A caller challenged Dr. Edell on his promotion of these numbers, saying that it was political on Dr. Edell's part. Dr. Edell denied that it was political, because he was only citing a medical journal, that the numbers were simply a "fact" and that most of the victims were women and children. He...

    HARRISBURG - The state will count absentee ballots of Pennsylvanians living abroad and serving in the military overseas that arrive up to eight days after Tuesday's election under a compromise brokered yesterday by a federal judge. Yet the agreement might not be the final word on a contentious battle pitting Republican leaders and conservative talk-show hosts against Democratic Gov. Rendell, who had until yesterday opposed the extension. Hours after a federal judge approved the settlement, GOP leaders filed a separate motion in state court to push back the deadline even further. Still, parents of the two Army enlisted men serving...

    WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - Actor Tom Sizemore was arrested Wednesday on a probation violation and released after posting $10,000 bail, authorities said. Sizemore, 42, was arrested for a narcotics violation when probation officers conducting random visits discovered drugs at his residence, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Vance Duffy. Sizemore, who has appeared in such films as "Black Hawk Down" and "Saving Private Ryan," was sentenced in October to six months in jail on misdemeanor charges of harassing, annoying and physically abusing former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss during their two-year relationship. Superior Court Judge Antonio Barreto Jr. stayed the jail...
