    Okay, if I'm reading this right, we have all been suckered in a big way and with an outcome far worse we thought. Ask yourself, where is the Executive Order?So far, there is no EO. What he issued were two memoranda (see the link above). Both very vague, no concrete proposals or edicts. One speaks of assembling a "Task Force on New Americans" to figure out how to make our society and it's institutions more welcoming to the shadow people. The second invites proposals and ideas on "improving" the process for getting into the US.Now, if this is it, if...

    Twelve dogs, identified by Detroit police as pit bulls, attacked a man some time before 10 p.m. on Pennsylvania on Oct. 2. Police arrived and fatally shot one of the animals, causing the remainder to retreat into the open front door where they lived. DETROIT, MI -- It was about 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 2 when a pack of up to 12 pit bull and mixed-breed dogs mauled 50-year-old Steven Constantine to near death in Detroit. He spent almost a month in Intensive Care. "It was worse than your worst nightmare," Constantine's sister, Katherine Hawley of Shelby Township, told MLive...

    Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson said Sunday that the 2016 presidential election might not happen due to anarchy. His remarks on “Fox News Sunday” followed an interview two days earlier on Fox News Radio, during which he speculated that there may be no election because “there may be so much anarchy going on.” “I hope that that’s not going to be the case, but certainly, there is the potential,” Carson said Sunday, prompted by host Chris Wallace. “Because you have to recognize that we have a rapidly increasing national debt, a very unstable financial foundation and you have all these...

    It was a protest for the planet, or at least it was billed that way. Progressive activists marched under the “green” banner this week in New York City to call for “action” on climate change. But what was the “action” they were advocating? White the media covered senators, actors, and celebrities at the event, they stayed away from the masses. That wasn’t an accident.

    In all the bad days that opponents of same-sex marriage have had lately, few compare with the one they had this past week in a courtroom in Chicago. Lawyers defending the bans in Wisconsin and Indiana were buried in an avalanche of skepticism and incredulity. The judges demanded to know what worthy goals the prohibitions serve, and the attorneys had terrible trouble coming up with any. Perhaps the low point for their side came when one was asked why Wisconsin makes it so hard for same-sex couples to adopt and ventured to say, "I think tradition is one of the...

    Suddenly, it’s 1964 again. Racial tension is in the air. Cries of “injustice” and “police brutality” occupy the headlines. However, the epicenter has moved from Mississippi and Harlem to Ferguson, Missouri, a small municipality that occupies a slice of northeastern St. Louis County. Unfortunately for the peace-loving citizens in that community, those fanning the flames that have led to the violence are stuck in 1964. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and members of the New Black Panther Party have never moved on. They are in a time warp. In fact, their relevance depends on being able to make disadvantaged blacks believe...

    The film begins in formulaic fashion, introducing us slowly to the ensemble cast that is about to flee for their lives for the rest of the movie, while also giving us the backstory on how a government group called “The New Founding Fathers” have instituted “the Purge,” while Internet preachers rail against it as a form of false, secular religion. Then the sirens go off, the population huddles behind closed doors and “commencement” of the purge begins with ticking clock, an excellent suspense element.

Six of the members of the Russian punk rock group known as Pussy Riot have decided to write a letter stating that they may no longer be listed as members of their group. In the letter, the collective accuses the two former members of no longer meeting up to the "aspirations and ideals of [the] group." The two newly disenfranchised members had performed...

Immediately, an obvious drunk stumbles from the bar. The drunk drops and retrieves his car keys repeatedly as people leave the bar, enter their vehicles and head home. Convinced that he's found an easy target, the officer ignores the departing crowd. Finally, the drunk reaches the last remaining car, enters and starts the engine. The officer flips on his lights, pulls his cruiser next to the drunk's car—and receives a shock....

    "It's the law of the land." This is rapidly becoming the preferred shorthand argument for why criticism of Obamacare is just so, so wrong.

For instance, here's Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who walked out of the painting "American Gothic" to deliver this homespun wisdom: "We're not going to bow to Tea Party anarchists who deny the mere fact that Obamacare is the law.

    In a groundbreaking resolution, the Los Angeles Unified District school board voted Tuesday to ban suspensions for “willful defiance,” making it the first district in the state to do so. This decision will stop suspensions for a variety of misbehaviors—anything from mouthing off to teachers, eating food in the classroom, or violating the school dress code—which critics have maintained are too broad and arbitrarily enforced. Instead, starting next year, principals will install alternative disciplinary measures while students remain in school. The ban in LAUSD, the second largest school district in the country, marks a major shift from a zero-tolerance policy...

One could argue that Americans would be far more prosperous if we were free of the heavy taxes and regulations that hamper our economy today. But in the hands of the bad, anarchy represents chaos. There is no rule of law to deter criminals; no police force to protect the people or their property; no military to repel foreign invaders. But that is only if we consider the citizens of a state....

    Occupy protesters are like a bunch of neighborhood kids who've figured out which houses they can pelt with eggs and rocks and get away with it. And in the Bay Area's thriving anarchist/protest community, everybody knows the answer to that one: Oakland City Hall. It's an unrestricted public space with little police presence, even less common sense from its elected leaders and easy access to the rest of downtown. The place is perfect. Sunday night, a group of about 200 protesters gathered outside City Hall and proceeded to march through downtown shattering store windows and car windshields and tossing paint...

    Dear FReepers, Imagine my surprise when I received this e-mail from the anarchist terrorist group Anonymous. The only liberal activist group that I get e-mails from is BHO's Rebuilding the Dream lobbyist group. No other liberal group has my contact information. So, I have to assume that BHO's activist group has provided e-mail lists of people they assume are sympathetic potential soldiers, volunteers and revolutionaries. BHO has repeatedly claimed that he supports OWS even during their seizure of parks and Wisconsin's Capitol Building. The Anonymous group has direct ties to the Black Bloc and George Soros. They are also linked...

    Judge Denies Bail For Trayon Washington In Wendy Fisher Slaying (Mobile) Updated: Thursday, July 12, 2012, 11:14 AM By Brendan Kirby, Press-Register MOBILE, Alabama — A Mobile County judge this morning denied bail for a teenager accused of killing Wendy Fisher on the street outside her home on Racine Avenue in west Mobile. That means that Trayon Omar Washington, 17, will be jailed pending trial on a murder charge. For now, Washington is charged with murder, but Mobile County District Attorney Ashley Rich said it could be upgraded to capital murder depending on the circumstances. “The investigation is continuing,” she...

    The parents of a 17-year-old girl they say was coerced into prostitution knew that her pimp was in San Francisco but chose to take the law into their own hands rather than call police, a prosecutor said Friday. New evidence in the case in which the girl's mother, father and two other men are charged with murdering 22-year-old Calvin Sneed of Compton shows that the June 4 shooting was more a revenge slaying than an effort to protect a young girl, said District Attorney George Gascón. "I think when you look at the level of premeditation that went on, the...

    Growing concern about crime in the Oakland hills, and a withered Police Department's apparent inability to do anything about it, has given rise to a new neighborhood strategy embraced by both residents and police: Buy surveillance cameras. Lots of them. Since November, Oakland police have attended at least a dozen neighborhood meetings in Montclair and other hillside areas where they preach the benefits of wiring residential streets with security cameras, then make way for salesmen to pitch surveillance products to residents. For police, residents' cameras are a new way to collect evidence at a time when depleted staffing levels have...

    For the last couple of months, many of the pointy-headed talking heads who inhabit The Fox Neocon Channel (FNC), PMSNBC, and the Communist Newspeak Network (CNN) have been babbling about the in-fighting on the Right. Many have wondered if the GOP Establishment's Golden Boy Mitt Romney has been damaged by the lukewarm rececption of him by the GOP's Conservative base. (As of this writing, it is unknown if the Bellvue staff has allowed Tokyo Rove to have shoe laces yet.) Night after night, we've had nothing but on air hand-wringing from the likes of Ann Coulter and the rest of...

    The "Occupy" movement, which the Obama administration and much of the media have embraced, has implications that reach far beyond the passing sensation it has created. The unwillingness of authorities to put a stop to their organized disruptions of other people's lives, their trespassing, vandalism and violence is a de facto suspension, if not repeal, of the 14th Amendment's requirement that the government provide "equal protection of the laws" to all its citizens. How did the "Occupy" movement acquire such immunity from the laws that the rest of us are expected to obey? Simply by shouting politically correct slogans...
