    “The progressive Republicans have won. The progressive Democrats have won.” “Where’s Mitch McConnell?” LevinTV host Mark Levin asked on his radio program after President Trump signed Congress’ $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill on Friday. “Has anybody seen or heard from Mitch McConnell? I mean, he’s the guy behind the scenes. He’s the Svengali who put all this together. He’s the good-for-nothing, big-spending, deal-cutting, self-serving phony politician who put this all together behind closed doors and threatens his colleagues in the Senate should they dare to challenge him or question him.” Levin criticized McConnell, the rest of Congress, and the president...

    Brenda Arthur received an unexpected visit on March 8 that, one week later, leaves her feeling more than a little uneasy. At her door that day was an officer with the West Virginia State Police. He wanted to know about her involvement in a Freedom of Information request regarding a local mosque. Arthur, who will turn 67 this summer, is leader of the West Virginia chapter of ACT For America, whose mission is to educate Americans about the advancement of Islamic principles in Western societies.

    Saturday, Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) discussed the bill Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed Friday to raise the purchase of long firearms from the age of 18 to 21, calling it “merely the beginning” of the response to last month’s Parkland, FL, shooting. The National Rifle Association (NRA) sued the state of Florida over the provision, saying it violates the Second Amendment. “This provision that requires someone to be 21 to buy a gun would have prevented the 19-year-old shooter, who bought an AR-15 and used it to kill 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas — that’s what the provision would...

    “GOV. RICK SCOTT CAVES: SIGNS $400 MILLION GUN CONTROL BILL: by Dr. Michael J. Hurd Exactly why do we have Republican governors again? Of course, he felt compelled to “do something”. To not “do something” would seem like a failure to honor the victims of the Florida government school slaughter last month. At least if you think the government has the power to stop such shootings by disarming the innocent and doing nothing whatsoever to protect them, such as arming teachers or privatizing schools. “Doing something” is often worse than doing nothing. The Republican Governor’s bill includes provisions to prevent...

    To cleanse the palate, I’m not even going to scold him for making a mockery of the legislative process. We elected a game-show host president, for fark’s sake. Besides, as a matter of self-promotion, this stunt isn’t half bad. Drew Christensen is all of 24 years old and has been a state representative since he was 22(!). He’s not just a backbencher, he’s a freakishly young backbencher. His influence in the statehouse is about as small as it can possibly be. What do you do with your time when the odds of one of your bills becoming law is essentially...

    No, Mr. Attorney-General, secession and nullification are not settled law. Laws against nullification and secession are the illegitimate offspring of the War of Independence. The Founders were secessionists, no, Mr. Sessions? Were you asleep during your 6th grade history class as much you are today? Every government that exceeds its constitutionally mandated powers is illegitimate. As such, the states are free to go. Haven’t you noticed that the federal government has completely trashed the Tenth Amendment guaranteeing the states and the people the power of authority over those powers not granted the federal government under Article 1, Section 8? When...

    Subtitle: Continuing the March of Folly. The eight Obama years felt something like a sequel to Barbara Tuchman’s The March of Folly. Didn’t you scream inside every time he usurped or ignored the law and congress did nothing about it? His election and reelection lent credence to the sorry fact that nations often disregard the lessons of history. This wasn’t so with our Framing generation. From history’s offerings they embraced the good and shunned the bad. By a large measure our Constitution is a compilation of dos and don’ts, of lessons learned from England’s Stuart Age (1603-1714). Without a written...

    HB 2951 has been introduced in the Oklahoma House. It is an interesting version of Constitutional Carry. The bill adds self-defense to the list of activities that are exceptions to the general prohibition on carrying weapons that exist in Oklahoma law. It includes knives as well as guns. From Coody said House Bill 2951 is about law-abiding citizens protecting themselves in worst-case situations. The proposed legislation says anyone 21 or older, or at least 18 years old and a veteran or enlisted military member, would be able to carry a gun or rifle without a license. Here is the...

    Without guns: We would not have won the Revolutionary War against the British Empire, the biggest empire in the world. They fought fiercely to retain their colony, no empire wants to give up anything! Without guns the Constitution would have meant nothing! The British would have taken the Constitution and wiped their a$$es with it while laughing in our faces. Without guns there would be no land of opportunity. The British would have continued to grind us down until we became serfs. They didn't care about reason or philosophy, they cared about retaining their power and their wealth at others...

    Courts are faulting the search, but allowing the information, as case law lags behind technology Emilio Jean won his appeal, but he might as well have lost. Arizona law-enforcement officers violated Mr. JeanÂ’s privacy rights when they rigged a GPS device to a tractor-trailer he was co-piloting and tracked it for three days without a warrant, the stateÂ’s highest court ruled in January. But the Arizona court declined to throw out the illegally obtained evidence, a move that likely would have set Mr. Jean free. Instead, he is serving the rest of his 10-year prison sentence for attempting to haul...

    The Supreme Court took a dim view Wednesday of Minnesota’s law banning voters from wearing political apparel to vote on Election Day, with liberal justices questioning where to draw the line and conservatives wondering who got to decide what is political in the first place. Minnesota said it has a legitimate state interest in ensuring decorum inside polling places and integrity during the election process. But Andrew Cilek, a Minnesota voter, contends the law is overly broad and almost prevented him from voting in the 2010 election because he wore a “Tea Party Patriots” T-shirt and a button asking poll...

I have fond memories of my time in the service. I was fortunate enough to give to my country. One of the first memories that I have occurred in boot camp in Camp Barry in North Chicago. The history we were shown about our country from the founding fathers to the formation of the first U. S. Navy will always be a guiding point of my...

    Article 1 section 8 clause 1 of the Constitution reads: “The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States…” From this clause, many have construed the “general Welfare” statement to grant practically unlimited power to Congress to collect and spend the tax payers’ money on whatever cause Congress may invent for the “good” of the government or the people. Is that what the designers of our Constitution intended when they penned those words “general Welfare?” James Madison, the...

    Article V Blog ^ | February 26th 2017 | Rodney Dodsworth
    I can hear the eyes glazing over. From Article I § 1 “We the People,” in a straightforward sentence, loaned limited lawmaking powers to a Congress of the United States. What could be clearer? Despite the clarity, most lawmaking these past hundred years drifted from congress to executive branch agencies. Specialists in various disciplines from the environment, workplace and labor relations, education, energy, and the law itself (DOJ), busy themselves writing progressive regulations on behalf of the President. But, for many, the pace of transformation was still too slow. To speed societal progress, a recent democrat congress infamously exempted a...
