    Economic Collapse News ^ | 27 August 2016 | Andrew Moran / Peter G. Klein
    Hillary Clinton has been taking heat for her relationship with the Clinton Foundation. Did individuals and firms making large donations to the Foundation, or paying large speaking or consulting fees to Bill Clinton, get preferred access to Ms. Clinton as Secretary of State? Is there a revolving door between the Clinton campaign and the FoundationÂ’s fundraising staff? Are these relationships the subject of the emails she deleted from her private server? These questions point to a more basic issue about the role of money in politics. What, exactly, do large corporations get in exchange for their payments to candidates and...
  • Judge tosses flag desecration charge; was pipeline protest[Iowa]

    AP ^ | 15 Aug 2018 | David Pitt
    A flag desecration charge was dropped Monday for a man who protested a crude oil pipeline that crosses his property by hanging an American flag upside down at his home, online court records show. Homer Martz, 63, was charged Friday under a state law that makes it illegal to defile, cast contempt upon, satirize or deride a flag. That law, however, was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge in December 2014 and state prosecutors were told not to enforce it. The law, which lawmakers have not removed from the books, says law enforcement officers have a duty "to enforce the...

    The criminal trial ended more than two and a half years ago, but Judge Jesse M. Furman can still vividly recall the case. It stands out, not because of the defendant or the subject matter, but because of its rarity: In his four-plus years on the bench in Federal District Court in Manhattan, it was his only criminal jury trial. He is far from alone. Judge J. Paul Oetken, in half a decade on that bench, has had four criminal trials, including one that was repeated after a jury deadlocked. For Judge Lewis A. Kaplan, who has handled some of...

    “We started to find out that people actually can get guns without a background check,” said Daniel, who lives in Illinois, where all gun purchasers must pass a background check. “As naive as I was back then, I thought because I go through a background check, everybody did. So we start to find out about all these loopholes that we have in our laws.” Since his sister’s death, Daniel has pushed lawmakers to expand criminal background checks beyond licensed dealers to private sellers, such as those who advertise on Armslist. That is where Radcliffe found the seller of the gun...

    Another fallacy that is disabused in this survey (which states it follows in a long line of other surveys) is that more background checks will change anything in terms of how criminals get guns. Since they typically do not walk into an FFL making background checks more demanding, is not going to decrease the use of guns in crimes. For ordinary citizens, they must and do comply with the gun laws no matter how they acquire their guns. As I stated previously, it appears to me the anti-gun people are creating laws to restrict the activities of law-abiding citizens. That...

Zina’s abusive husband, Radcliffe Haughton, used a semiautomatic handgun that he bought from a man in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant in Germantown the day before the shooting. He killed Zina Haughton, Maelyn Lind and Cary Robuck and wounded four others at the Azana Salon & Spa in the Milwaukee suburb of Brookfield. He then used the weapon to kill himself.

That rule was confirmed in spades Friday when the Republican presidential nominee responded to Hillary Clinton’s claim that he’s a racist and white supremacist, and he used her own words to do it. He put together a video montage of the former secretary of state and posted it to his Facebook page under the heading, “The Clinton’s are the real predators…”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukTrbi5SmkQ The video ad centers on Clinton’s use of the term “super-predators” in 1993, the first year she served as first lady.

    In a series of events most would normally dismiss as outlandish, one American citizen was launched from civil court into a legal limbo where for years he was deprived by a federal judge of counsel, property, speech and travel. The case seems unthinkable in the American judicial system, but the story is true, and it happened to one Jeff Baron. Jeff Baron is a Dallas resident and U.S. citizen who was put into “virtual slavery” by U.S. District Court Judge Royal Furgeson after Baron settled an otherwise ordinary contract dispute in his court. Although Baron was never accused of any...

For crying out loud, when is the last time we had a president of EITHER PARTY willing to do anything at all about the borders? I think you'd have to go all the way back to Eisenhower.

Democrat vitriol is liberally applied not just to Trump, but to all his supporters. Chatting with a California man who had biked across America, I remarked that it must have been interesting to talk with people across the country. His answer? "Are you crazy? I didn't talk to anyone. They're all rednecks." Character assassination is the liberal weapon of choice against ordinary people. Democrats bully everyone to obey their rules on what we may think and say and do....

    A Washington-based “biohacker” has created the first implant-activated “smart gun.” A biohacker is a person who experiments with body implants including magnets and in this case, RFID keys. Smart guns use these keys to ensure that only authorized users can shoot them. The biohacker, Amal Graafstra, has successfully implanted an RFID tag in his hand that serves as a radio-activated safety when it’s in range of his smart gun. It’s a proof-of-concept system to illustrate that it is indeed possible. Graafstra founded and runs his business, Dangerous Things, from home. Current RFID-based smart gun technology uses wearable tags, such as...

However, there are undoubtedly cases of gerrymandering taking place in Democrat-controlled states. Maryland is one such example and a law school student has taken their antics to court. Steve Shapiro, an American University student, has challenged the districts drawn by former Governor Martin O’Malley and the blue legislature on first amendment grounds. The case...

    President Barack Obama’s White House is taking a lame-duck approach to dealing with the nation’s spiraling budget deficit, telling reporters this week that it’s the next administration’s problem. The Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday increased its projection for the national budget deficit in 2016 to $590 billion— that’s $56 billion more than it predicted in March. The nation’s money-watchers blamed the lagging economy’s impact on corporate tax revenues coupled with increases in mandatory government spending for the projected deficit increase. From the CBO: The deficit is growing in 2016 because revenues are up only slightly, by less than 1...

Jackson currently serves as Apple’s environmental director, and is also on the board of the Clinton Foundation. Jackson took the Apple job after leaving the EPA amid a scandal involving her use of a secret email account. For years, Jackson...

    Key excerpts: All those who wish to argue that the Saudis donated millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation out of a magnanimous desire to aid its charitable causes, please raise your hand. Or take the newfound casting of the Clinton Foundation as a champion of LGBTs, and the smearing of its critics as indifferent to AIDS. Are the Saudis also on board with these benevolent missions? And the Qataris and Kuwaitis? ... The reality is that there is ample evidence uncovered by journalists suggesting that regimes donating money to the Clinton Foundation received special access to and even highly...

    There are some days where the news makes you want to bang your head on your keyboard. This is one of those days. Today, there was a group of students down at the University of Texas keeping Austin weird as they to protest campus carry. While organizers reportedly started the rally as a joke, the protest grew in popularity and had a large number of malleable young adults turning out to rally against one constitutional right while exercising another. Pro-Second Amendment Group Students for Concealed Carry approved of the protest with their Texas State Director Brian Bensimon stating “If carrying...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump continued to insist Wednesday in a "Hannity" town hall with Fox News' Sean Hannity that there will be "no amnesty" for illegal immigrants, but suggested that he would be willing to "work with them." His remarks were the latest in a series of recent interviews where he has said he is considering softening a previous pledge made at the onset of his campaign to deport 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. During a "Hannity" town hall on Tuesday, Trump said he was open to "softening" laws dealing with illegal immigrants. On Wednesday, Trump told...

    Hillary Clinton is set to deliver an entire speech on Donald Trump’s scary connections to a phenomenon known as the “alt right.”If you paid deep attention to the news during this election cycle, you might have heard the term in passing during some CNN and MSNBC segments. When used by journalists, it basically denotes online white supremacists who love Trump.Last week, the alt right earned its most attention yet after Trump announced Breitbart News CEO Steve Bannon was joining his campaign as its new executive. Breitbart has gained a reputation among some journalists as a platform the alt right due...

    Back in April 2016, the New York Times published an article highlighting a number of Facebook pages in the Middle East being used to sell U.S. military equipment. A terrorist hoping to buy an antiaircraft weapon in recent years needed to look no further than Facebook, which has been hosting sprawling online arms bazaars, offering weapons ranging from handguns and grenades to heavy machine guns and guided missiles. The Facebook posts suggest evidence of large-scale efforts to sell military weapons coveted by terrorists and militants. The weapons include many distributed by the United States to security forces and their proxies...

    More than a year before the Associated Press reported the remarkable access Clinton Foundation donors had to the State Department, the news wire revealed that Hillary Clinton’s required financial disclosure report ahead of her 2012 run for president omitted a mystery company owned by her husband that had no apparent employees or assets. While the balance sheets and the activities of the limited liability company – known as WJC, the initials of William Jefferson Clinton – remain unknown, it’s the type of legal financial entity that drug cartels and other international criminal enterprises use to launder money to avoid law...

    Barry Bahrami went from incredulous to angry last month when California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a batch of firearms control laws known collectively as “Gunmageddon.” Then, the San Diego-based CEO became determined to fight back against the laws, which take aim at so-called assault weapons, enforce ammunition background checks, mostly take effect Jan. 1 and outlaw the possession of high-capacity magazines and ban the "bullet buttons" that already require a tool to release the magazine, instead advocating that the rifle is partially disassembled, and that any rifle with a detachable magazine will be defined as an assault weapon. "These laws...
