    Christians in the U.S. military are being told they must forfeit their First Amendment rights. Bible verses are being erased from cadets’ personal dorm-room white boards, and military lawyers claim that legal protections for religion only pertain to matters such as clothing and growing beards but do not extend to any religious expression such as talking about one's faith or posting a Bible verse. Last year Breitbart News broke the story of a campaign by anti-Christian extremists to suppress traditional Christian expression within the U.S. military. There were conflicting stories regarding the possible court martial of service members who share...

    Be careful when you Google yourself, Bay Area authorities are warning. In the case of Christopher Viatafa, who Googled himself and found his photo on Northern California’s Most Wanted website, he turned himself in to police. Viatafa – who has a pretty unique last name – was wanted by the San Leandro Police Department for his involvement in a shooting. On August 8, 2013, Vaitafa attended a private party at the San Leandro Senior Center located at 13909 East 14th Street. Police said he started arguing with some people at the party, pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and fired a...

    Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur, Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. It was against this background that, seven hours later, he took control of a Boeing 777-200 bound for Beijing and carrying 238 passengers and crew. But this newspaper can reveal that investigators had already spent much of last week examining two laptops removed from Shah’s home. One laptop taken away is thought to contain data from the flight simulator while a second contained little...

    We’ve always said that a restraining order is just a piece of paper. Usually we’re referring to defensive gun uses when we say that. However, in this case we have the government violating a restraining order issued by… the government. As we reported earlier this week, the ATF has demanded that Ares Armor, along with some other vendors, turn over their customer records in relation to an 80% lower that may have actually been a firearm under law. Ares agreed to stop selling the product in question as well as turn over their stock to the ATF, however they refused...

Mayor Jean Quan is the major target after her newsletter appears to promote a class designed to teach people how to pick a lock. In a city with a crime problem, it's easy to see why they're not happy. The name of the class appears among 40 others in the catalog for the upcoming "Workshop Weekend" in Oakland, right alongside things like "robot building."

I don't understand why the police officers across this country don't stand up collectively and say we're gonna go on strike, we're not gonna protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what's required to keep us safe.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the part of her agency that handles the 287(g) agreements with states and localities, had a Web page dedicated to success stories from the program, pointing to many of the dangerous criminal aliens who had been taken off the streets after local authorities nabbed them for another offense.

Typically a group of users place their hands on a movable pointer , or "planchette", and ask questions out loud. Sometimes the planchette signals an answer, even when no one admits to moving it deliberately. Believers think the answer...

    In his deciding opinion in the cases challenging the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare), Chief Justice John Roberts first says the mandate in the law requiring individuals to buy health insurance is not a tax. Then he says it is a tax. He upholds the individual mandate—as a tax, not a penalty—as the law of the land. But then says it would not be "unlawful" for Americans to violate the law's mandate that they "shall" buy health insurance--as long as they are willing to pay the "penalty" for not obeying the law. Roberts first examines the question...

Chief Justice Roberts, writing for the Court, held while the “individual mandate is not a valid...

The decision means the historic overhaul will continue to go into effect over the next several years, affecting the way that countless Americans receive and pay for their personal medical care. The ruling also handed Obama a campaign-season victory in rejecting arguments that Congress went too far in requiring most Americans to have health insurance or pay a penalty.

Ostensibly that blanket amnesty applies to those who arrived before the age of 16 and are younger than 30; who are in, or graduated from, high school or have served in the military; and who have not been convicted of a felony or multiple misdemeanors. And while most Americans sympathize with helping those who were brought into the United States as toddlers, raised as de facto Americans and followed the rules, the policy of exempting hundreds of thousands...

Though his position may seem balanced, in fact, it reveals a dangerous mix of irrationality, moral relativism, and emotionalism—all disastrous traits in a U.S. Congressman.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: We had this story for much of Friday, but I think it's worth repeating. Along the lines of Fast and Furious I think it's worth repeating. Some Drive-By big name wrote a piece that Fast and Furious is not a big deal, people don't care about it, but the media wants a scandal, the media would love a real Obama scandal. Now, what more of a scandal do you need, coming up with a program that would see to it that guns were walked across the border to drug cartels for the express purpose of creating a...

    Weary of defending in court the Constitutional eligibility of their boy at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the Democrat Party has finally admitted Barack Obama is not qualified to be president of the United States– and that it doesn’t matter. According to a motion filed by Party attorneys in a Tennessee eligibility lawsuit, “…Defendants [the Tennessee Democrat Party and the Democrat National Committee] assert that the Tennessee Democrat Party has the right to nominate whoever it chooses to run as a candidate, including someone who is not qualified for the office.” (1) In numerous previous lawsuits questioning the Constitutional eligibility of Barack...

    GENEVA, June 22, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The World Health Organization (WHO) has released a guide detailing the most effective ways to kill unborn children, with different methods at various stages of the unborn child’s development. The document is the second edition of “Safe abortion: technical and policy guidance for health systems” which was originally published in 2003. “It is a horrific read,” stated Scott Fischbach, Executive Director of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL) Global Outreach. “Following these guidelines will assuredly kill women and their unborn children, especially in developing nations,” he added. “Some of the recommendations, WHO admits, are...
  • ‘Burn in Hell!’: Adults Heckle NYC Schoolchildren While They Sing ‘God Bless the USA’

    Good news! Peter Singer, the infanticide promoter at Princeton University, thinks he has has solved the religious liberty problem in America. Singer writes that, if Catholics don’t like the HHS contraception mandate, they can just close their universities and hospitals, or hand them over to secular interests.It’s just that simple!“The Obama administration’s requirement to provide health insurance that covers contraception does not prevent Catholics from practicing their religion,” Singer writes in a progressive journal. “Catholicism does not oblige its adherents to run hospitals and universities.” Therefore, Singer argues, the government can tell Catholics how to run these institutions without infringing...

    Alternate headline: "Blogger's plan to be president by 2040 still on track."Note to The One: You can admit it now.I've blogged a bunch of these Gallup polls over the years and my demographic has always been at the bottom of the barrel preference-wise. But things are improving: In 2007, just 45 percent said they'd vote for an atheist, then last year it crept up to 49 percent. Now we're over the hump at 54. I wonder why. It's not like the "new atheism" suddenly exploded onto the national scene over the past six months, and to hear believers tell it,...

    Denver mom Sarah Cohen says drawing sidewalk chalk art is one of her three-year-old daughter Emerson's "simple pleasures in life.""It's definitely better than video games," Cohen told KCNC. However, the homeowner's association in Cohen's neighborhood feels differently. They say Emerson's drawings -- usually of hearts and flowers -- are distracting and offensive blights on their community."My initial reaction was, 'You have to be kidding me," Cohen said. The association, called Innovations and Courtyard Traditions at Stapleton, temporarily banned children from drawing on sidewalks, saying anything that offends, disturbs or interferes with the peaceful enjoyment is not allowed on shared spaces.They...

    GREENVILLE, SC (WYFF) - A drunken driver killed an Upstate women's son last year, and if the grief wasn't enough, she's had to deal with bills associated with the wreck, even for the cost of cleaning up her son's blood. A coroner called Loretta Robinson last June and told her that her oldest son, Justin Walker, died when his car was struck by a drunken driver on White Horse Road. "I never would have imagined getting that call," she said. "Never in one million years expected that." Robinson looked Anna Gonzalez, the accused driver, in the eye in court Tuesday...
  • Republicans Say Obama's De Facto Amnesty Move Violates Oath of Office

    (The Hill) -- Republicans are criticizing the Obama administration’s new leniency for some illegal immigrants as a politically motivated and possibly illegal effort to win over Hispanic voters. The Republicans contend the new rules — which will prevent deportations for as many as 800,000 illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children — circumvent the law just to buy Obama support from Hispanics ahead of November's elections, in which the Hispanic vote will likely be crucial. Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said the change marks "a breach of faith with the American people." “This...
