  • Randazza: The March for Science … but was it?

    Popehat (lawyer blog) ^ | April 23, 2017 | Randazza
    ... I'm certain (or at least willing to believe) that the organizers were truly motivated by a desire for evidence-based policymaking to conquer superstition and emotion. But, as I review the smug "look at how enlightened we are for marching" pictures and posts on social media, I realize that the leaders and the crowd might not have the same motivations. ... Now do a thought experiment: Imagine if you showed up to that march with science that supported an anti-abortion position (just as one example) do you think you would have been welcomed? Imagine if science told us that life...
  • Female Genital Mutilation- the illegal immigrant that needs to be deported immediately

    This is the face of evil. It is the face of a wretched and barbaric practice- female genital mutilation. It is sometimes sugared over with the term female circumcision but make no mistake- it is mutilation. FGM refers to all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for cultural or other non-medical reasons. The woman in the picture above is Dr. Jumana Nagarwala. Her medical credentials are not in question: She graduated the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1998, according to an online bio (see cached...
  • TSA Sexual Assault Redux

    World News Bureau ^ | April 25, 2017 | Gina Miller
    Back in February, I wrote a report on being heavily groped between my legs by a woman with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. I labeled what she did to me sexual assault, to which some people took offense in the comment sections where the column was posted. However, what she did fits the definition of sexual assault as provided by the United States Department of Justice. You can nit-pick definition and intent all you like and can call it what you will, but I will call a spade a spade, and just...

    Bearing Arms ^ | April 24, 2017 | Bob Owens
    I’d almost expect something like this in a Third World country, but not here. A recent string of robberies on BART trains took a frightening turn when dozens of juveniles swarmed an Oakland station over the weekend and commandeered a train car, forcing passengers to hand over bags and cell phones and leaving at least two with head injuries, witnesses told the transit agency. The incident — the first of its kind in recent memory — occurred around 9:30 p.m. Saturday at Coliseum Station. According to a police summary, witnesses said 50 to 60 juveniles flooded the station, jumped the...

  • President Trump Appeases Government To Prevent A Shutdown, As Nuclear Power Sub Approaches N. Korea

    IWB ^ | Pamela Williams
    I was worried about a government shutdown at a very critical time in which we could go to war with North Korea. We have to put first things first, and I would say the situation with North Korea has to be a priority right now. Government spending and a wall can wait until we have a stable footing on the war front. A U.S. guided-missile submarine arrived in South Korea on Tuesday and envoys from the U.S., Japan and South Korea met in Tokyo, as North Korea marked the anniversary of the founding of its military. The people of North...

    I am not in the habit of posting vanities, but my family and I need some prayer. My Wife of nearly 28 years and I are adopting a little girl. The mother asked up to adopt, but has recently been giving mixed signals as to whether she still wants it to happen. The father has no interest in his youngest daughter. I learned today that we finally have a court date in late May. I hope and pray that the mother realizes what is best for the little girl, who has been living with us full time since August 2016....

(and future president) Zachary Taylor receives reports that Mexican forces – seeking to reclaim Texas – have crossed the Rio Grande, he dispatches two companies of dragoons (mounted infantry) to investigate. The American soldiers are ambushed by some 1,600 Mexican soldiers and those not killed are taken prisoner. The Mexican-American War has begun. 1914: Navy lieutenant (future vice admiral) Patrick N.L. Bellinger flies the first naval combat mission when his AB-3 flying boat conducts reconnaissance of Veracruz and searches the Mexican harbor for mines. Bellinger also becomes the first American aviator to be fired upon by...

    The American Mirror ^ | 04/25/2017 | Kyle Olson
    Arizona ranchers John Ladd and Fred Davis invited House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to see the southern border from their property, but she never responded. But they responded this morning to Pelosi’s recent claim that the border wall is “immoral, expensive, unwise.” Appearing on Fox & Friends on Tuesday, Ladd said border crossings by illegal aliens have decreased 90% to 95% since Donald Trump took office. Perhaps more shockingly, Ladd has determined through Border Patrol data that some 500,000 illegal aliens have crossed his property in the 30 years he’s owned it. {..snip..}
  • How ABC and WaPo rigged a poll to make it look like Americans now love ObamaCare

    Canada Free Press ^ | 04/25/17 | Dan Calabrese
    Trickery On first glance, this looks bad: According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, only 37 percent of Americans want ObamaCare repealed and replaced, as opposed to 61 percent who prefer that we “keep and improve” it. How could this happen? How could a law that has never been popular, has never worked well and has resulted in soaring premiums and collapsing insurance markets suddenly be popular? Like I said, it appears that way on first glance, but if you think about the choices offered in the poll, you’ll notice something:

    Canada Free Press ^ | 04/25/17 | Robert Laurie
    Barack Obama learned it from watching you, Hillary! Democrats, as we all know, loathe the so-called “one percent.” We all know their ranks are clogged with over payed movie-stars, “woke” CEO’s, and career politicians who, like Harry Reid, inexplicably manage to make millions in the public service arena, but that’s not the point. Those one-percenters are OK because they toe the left-wing line. Being wealthy is only a problem if you try to stand up to their agenda. Occasionally, that plays out in interesting ways. During the 2016 election, the Bernie-loving socialists were thrilled when Sanders attacked Hillary Clinton’s outrageous...

    Chris Hayes goes all in on Black Nationalism with "A Colony in a Nation" Black Nationalism is hot. Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates, in which publishing’s answer to Kanye West contended that the white firefighters of 9/11 were “not human,” won a National Book Award. Ibram X. Kendi’s Stamped from the Beginning, which indicted a post-racial society as racist, won the next one. But the dirty little secret is that the target audience for these Black Nationalist tracts is as lily white as the MSNBC lineup.

    The media, and Democrats, lost in November for any number of reasons, including their own incompetence and misunderstanding of the American people—not Comey’s actions or a Russian influence operation The New York Times recently published a lengthy postmortem on the effects that the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails and the bureau’s investigation into Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia had on the 2016 election. The paper casts blame because FBI Director James Comey went public with the Clinton investigation, but didn’t expose the Trump inquiry during the election. “For all the attention on Mrs. Clinton’s emails, history is likely...

    Retired Marine Major Gen. Randolph Alles, the current U.S. Customs and Border deputy, is expected to be tapped to lead the Secret Service, according to a former law enforcement official familiar with the selection process.

    According to information released by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), South African demand for US EB-5 visas has more than doubled since 2014. The EB-5 investor visa allows visa holders to obtain a green card for themselves and their immediate family members by investing $500,000 into U.S. businesses provided they create a required number of jobs. “For the first time, our industry now has access to the actual number of investors who applied, as apposed to just the number of EB-5 visas approved,” said Rogelio Caceres, co-founder of LCR Capital, a private equity investment firm that assists...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 04/25/17 | Dan Calabrese
    Line in the sand The latest Democrat threat is that they will somehow stop all tax reform until President Trump releases his tax returns. This follows constant media carping during the election demanding that very same thing, only to have the demand rejected by Trump and, by extension, by the electorate. But wait, you say! Polls consistently show the public wants Trump to release his returns. Sure they do, and it’s a classic example of what’s called push polling. When a pollster asks a person if he thinks something would be a good idea, that doesn’t necessarily mean the person...

    Unemployment is a serious pain point in America for both employers short on good talent and talent short on employment, so Sprint has announced that they’re going to take another step in their own fight against unemployment by expanding out to 79 new retail locations in Texas, which will create at least 550 jobs. The jobs that will be created by this move aren’t limited to retail salespeople and managers; more technical roles will also be brought on board, which means that the larger number of stores will represent an expansion in Sprint’s overall footprint for the state. It’s all...

You’ll recall Hall’s recent “obscenity-laced tirade” and threats to use his position to ‘get’ several farmers who opposed his confirmation:
