    This video shows a brave young clerk fighting off two robbers that are masked when they enter the store.  It happened on Friday, 27 February, 2015,  in a tobacco store in Lexington, Kentucky.   As one robber is trying to grab cash from the register, he puts down a small handgun.  While I can not clearly identify it, it looks similar to a RG-14.   The clerk, 21-year-old Ara Adil, grabs the pistol, and one robber runs off.  Then the remaining suspect attacks the clerk.  As they wrestle, she shoots him in the shoulder. Link to the video: The robber...

    Did Hillary Clinton Violate the Federal Embezzlement Law? by ANDREW C. MCCARTHY March 4, 2015 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s systematic evasion of federal recordkeeping requirements involved both the use of private email addresses and a server system installed in her Chappaqua manse. The servers, according to the Washington Free Beacon, may have been set up by shady longtime Clinton lackey Eric Hothem – under a false name (Eric Hoteham) slightly varied from his true name. It may also have been designed to give users the ability to erase emails without a trace. Shannen Coffin’s excellent column today points out...

    Instead of watching helplessly as our republic devolves into crown government, let’s distract ourselves with a counterfactual. What if senators were appointed by state legislatures for indefinite terms?The Senate was designed to preserve the federal nature of our system. Members of the House represent the people, but the Senators were to represent the states — really, state governments.Had this worked, the people would have benefited. (Sometimes, you win by grabbing all the power, but sometimes you win by ceding power to critical allies. The states were the people’s only allies in the War Against the Feds.)

A case in point is Apple’s Indoor Positioning functionality, which Apple has updated for iOS 8 to provide facility owners with indoor latitude, longitude and floor level via API.

    Three-dimensional printing has been used to make everything from pizza to prostheses, and now researchers are working on using the emerging technology to fabricate hearts, kidneys, and other vital human organs. That would be very big news, as the number of people who desperately need an organ transplant far outstrips the number of donor organs available. On average, about 21 Americans die every day because a needed organ was unavailable. What exactly is the promise of 3D printing organs and tissues, or "bioprinting?" How does the technology work, and when might it start saving lives? For answers to these and...

    Even before Bibi Netanyahu spoke, Barack Obama was hammering him: WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (neh-ten-YAH'-hoo) didn't offer any "viable alternatives" to the nuclear negotiations with Iran during his speech to Congress. Obama says he read a transcript of Netanyahu's speech Tuesday. He says "there was nothing new" in the speech. Obama says Netanyahu made almost the same speech when he warned against the interim deal reached with Iran. Obama says that deal has resulted in a freeze and rolling back of Iran's nuclear program. Obama says Netanyahu's alternative to the talks amounts...

Governor Snyder, who vetoed virtually the same bills only six weeks ago, signed them just hours ago.  Senate Bills 34 and 35 are now Public acts 3 and 4 of 2015.    The bills had passed with strong, veto proof majorities in both the House and Senate. County gun boards are eliminated by the bills, with a number of other reasonable reforms.   The gun boards were put in place in 1927.   In 1925, a black man, Dr. Ossian Sweet, had used a handgun to defend his family...

Trayvon Martin’s parents were just informed that the federal government won’t lift a finger to bring their son’s murderer to justice.

    Corporate welfare is causing major budgetary woes for the state of Michigan. The sum of refunds from unspecified tax credits handed out in the past is estimated to exceed $9 billion in the years to come. The credits were given through the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) as incentives for businesses to create or retain jobs. Meanwhile, the agency continues to operate amidst complaints from lawmakers, reporters and others about its lack of transparency. An objective means of determining the benefits of the credits, as measured in the number of jobs produced or retained, has not been forthcoming, and the...

Total employment rose by 98,000, or 2.3 percent. The Bureau of Labor Statistics does two monthly unemployment surveys. The Current Population Survey (CPS) is known as the “household survey” and the Current Employment Statistics (CES) survey is known as the “payroll survey,” because it surveys businesses. University of Michigan economist Don Grimes says the “payroll survey” has been shortchanging Michigan of jobs in its initial reports,...

As for her long-deferred announcement about the 2016 presidential race, Clinton did no more than repeat old quips about the difficult question of whether to run for president, at one point asking: “I suppose it’s fair to say: don’t you someday want to see a woman president?”

It appears that in addition to various personal greetings and inquiries Blumenthal send Hillary what he described as confidential information about Libya.

That cannot come as much surprise. Republican leaders never showed much commitment to making a sustained public case against the president’s executive amnesty, and their public lack of enthusiasm was bound to create suspicions among, and exacerbate tensions with, grassroots conservatives infuriated by the president’s distaste for...

    Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minster of Israel, delivered a powerful speech to Congress on Tuesday morning that made one thing abundantly clear, the leader of the free world does not reside in the White House. Netanyahu’s speech stood in stark contrast to the irrational rhetoric the Obama administration continues to preach on a daily basis. Such rhetoric on behalf of the adminstration insists on giving Iran the “benefit of the doubt” in regards to negotiations over a long-term nuclear deal while minimizing the actual threat such a “deal” would have on the Middle East. Netanyahu articulated the threat posed by...

    I can only imagine what this is going to cost us HEY! Great news! It’s VACATION TIME!!! Actually, most of us can’t take a vacation because we all need to WORK! But this is not the case for our ROYAL FAMILY! Yes, Michelle Obama is planning a nice little vacation for her and the 2 girls they claim are their ‘daughters…’ Will it be a spot on the beach for $65 a night? I mean, camping at the beach, having an awesome campfire, barbecuing up some burgers and dogs, slamming down a few brews- it doesn’t get much better than...

    ...Over Iran Nukes Speech to Congress Nobody on Obama’s staff has the power to speak this viciously and forcefully, to make crystal clear threats like this against a world leader, to the press, other than Valerie Jarrett. Plus, the sense of being so very PERSONALLY offended, so PERSONALLY invested in the President, is only going to come from Valerie Jarrett, we all know that. And lastly, the threatening language, the raging, vindictive arrogance are all Valerie’s emotional and rhetorical signatures. Take it to the bank that it was her. And it is beyond outrageous that she attacks Netanyahu as if...

    Now that the pervasive invasion of your privacy is complete, it is now time to conduct a full frontal assault on your minds, . . . and this battering will also not hurt.  The secret is in the subtlety of the assault. The invasion of your privacy, yes your privacy, you know that thing you treasure so much, that space you think is your private domain, is complete and it’s not private anymore.  The invasion didn’t hurt so much did it?  You accepted and swallowed the fear-of-terrorism wafer, which justified all invasions of private space. Were you offended?  Were you...

This is our colleagues’ chance to do exactly what they led their constituents to believe they’d do: defend the rule of law, without more excuses.”...

    In spite of the overwhelming success of American Sniper, it received only one Oscar out of the six categories for which it was nominated. It was a consolation prize most likely—one that allowed the Academy to maintain their façade of integrity, while not causing Hollywood liberals' heads to explode. But this isn’t about the public sensation the film has become. It’s about another phenomenon: the predictable reactions that came from the left. There’s no need to detail or recap the antagonism. But now that the furor of angry and confused criticism is beginning to subside to non-toxic levels, I think...

    Arkansas became a constitutional carry state in August of 2013.  It took about a year and a half, dozens of open carry marches, and a change of the Attorney General, for that fact to be generally recognized.  The picture above is one of the marches taking place in Little Rock.  I do not recall a single marcher ever being arrested for carrying a firearm.    From thv11.com: In 2013, former attorney general Dustin McDaniel issued an opinion saying he did not consider Arkansas an open carry state under act 746. We asked new attorney general Leslie Rutledge about her interpretation...

    In an interview with Sean Hannity, former speaker and 2012 presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich remarked that, Obama's refusal to meet with Israeli Prime Minister, Bibi Netanyahu helped to "turn the speech into a world-wide event". He further commented that weeks earlier when it became public that Obama would not be meeting with Netanyahu during his visit, immediate requests for tickets exceeded the house capacity by 2,500 seats. He added that, "Netanyahu's popularity among both sides of the isle was so great, that it took him much longer to make his way to the podium than it does Obama prior to...

    2003-05-31 04:00:00 PDT Washington -- A federal judge ruled Friday that Iran was behind the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut that killed 241 U.S. servicemen, clearing the way for more than 600 of their relatives to collect financial damages against the Islamic republic. In a 30-page decision that resulted from a lawsuit filed by the families, U. S. District Judge Royce Lamberth wrote that the terrorist group Hezbollah had carried out the attack at the behest of Iran and its Ministry of Information and Security. "The approval of both the Ayatollah Khomeini and President Rafsanjani was absolutely...

    In an open letter released on Tuesday, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker said he would sign legislation banning most abortions after the fifth month of pregnancy, the point after which infants can feel pain and survive if born prematurely. "As the Wisconsin legislature moves forward in the coming session, further protections for mother and child are likely to come to my desk in the form of a bill to prohibit abortions after 20 weeks. I will sign that bill when it gets to my desk and support similar legislation on the federal level," Walker wrote. "I was raised to believe in...
