    On the fifth night of rioting, looting and arson in Minneapolis, the criminal elements were driven from the streets. By whom? By the same cops who had been the constant objects of media derision and mob hatred. Without the thin blue line, far larger sectors of dozens of America's cities would be in ruins, burned to the ground by the mobs that showered police and their vehicles with rocks, bricks, bottles, Molotov cocktails and any debris that could be thrown at them. Because they were the first responders in these riots, the cops were the first targets of criminal assault...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden, now running for president, told a gathering of ministers and community activists on Monday that the American public is ready for institutional change, and he indicated that he'll raise taxes to accomplish that, if elected: Biden said it's "pure selfishness" to object to higher taxes that would help pay for programs benefiting the black community.

    Judd ended his address by speaking on a possible threat they’ve seen referenced on social media that suggests riot activity may start trickling into residential neighborhoods. “I would tell them, if you value your life, you probably shouldn’t do that in Polk County,” Judd said. “Because the people of Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns, and they’re going to be inside their homes tonight with their guns loaded. And if you try to break into their homes tonight and try to steal, to set fires, I’m highly recommending they blow you back out...

  • Gov. Northam Can’t Help Himself, Picks Gun Control Over Virus Control

    The Federalist ^ | June 1, 2020 | Lawrence Keane
    Gun control legislation has been all the rage in Richmond since Democrats took over the Virginia General Assembly last November. The Democratic majority teamed with Gov. Ralph Northam in their ambitious efforts to cross items off the gun control checklist, such as enacting a “red flag” law, banning private firearm transfers, reviving a handgun purchase limit, and even implementing a modern sporting rifle ban that was thankfully defeated in committee — for now. It should come as no surprise, then, that the governor who wouldn’t let his past use of blackface stop his political pandering would also not let a...

They deserve respect; respect for their status as free moral agents, not cogs in a giant health care machine. Such respect must include acknowledging and defending their right to not participate in certain “health care” procedures that many nurses and doctors hold to be beyond the pale of human decency, participation in which would violate their fundamental moral, religious, and ethical principles. Chief among such procedures is, of course, abortion." snip..."And in still another case, this time from a nurse who was deceived into participating in a horrific...
