    A. Alfred Taubman, an art collector and shopping-mall tycoon who sold Renoirs and root beer with equal panache and turned a sleepy Sotheby’s auction house into a global power of art sales, but went to prison in a commission-fixing scandal involving its archrival Christie’s, died on Friday at his home in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. He was 91.

    In oral arguments Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear the government defend its kleptocratic behavior while administering an indefensible law. The Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937 is among the measures by which New Dealers tried and failed to regulate and mandate America back to prosperity. Seventy-eight years later, it is the government’s reason for stealing Marvin and Laura Horne’s raisins. New Dealers had bushels of theories, including this: In an economic depression, prices fall, so a recovery will occur when government compels prices to stabilize above where a free market would put them. So Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “brains trust”...

    In Saturday's weekly address, President Obama declared 2014 the "warmest year on record" and because of that, he furthered, "climate change can no longer be denied -- or ignored." "This winter was cold in parts of our country -- as some folks in Congress like to point out -- but around the world, it was the warmest ever recorded," Obama said. The result, he continued: stronger storms, deeper droughts, and longer wildfire seasons. And with a nod back to his recent statements about how climate change caused his daughter's asthma, Obama warned that the air kids breathe is dangerous.

    Nearly everyone knows the dangers of identity theft, where someone steals your credit cards, bank information, or Social Security number to rip you off. But a new kind of crime is rising that could put you in even greater danger. It’s medical identity theft, and it’s on the rise in the U.S. According to report this month by the Medical Identity Fraud Alliance, which tracks such crimes, 2.3 million Americans were victimized by medical ID thieves in 2014 — with total damages adding up to $20 billion. That represents a 22 percent increase in the number of cases in just...

It has been reported that 26 employees in the agency's microscopic hair comparison laboratory overstated forensic matches so they favored prosecutors in the 1980s and 1990s. Research involving the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and the Innocence Project say that 95 per cent of 268 trials reviewed had been impacted.

The oral arguments before the 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans were being closely watched by both sides in the heated immigration debate as a sign of whether the administration will be able to move forward with its plan to grant quasi-legal status and work permits to about 4...

    California’s chief law officer, Attorney General Kamala Harris, declared this week, “an undocumented immigrant is not a criminal,” a statement in direct contradiction to federal law. Illegally entering and remaining in the country is a federal crime. By stating that those who illegally enter or remain in the United States are not in violation of law is simply incorrect. However, many of these “undocumented immigrants” are not being prosecuted under the current administration. Last November, President Obama declared effective amnesty for an estimated five million illegally present aliens. Since then, Representative Luis Gutierrez has traveled the country, partnering with fellow...

Rather the seeing Tsarnaev killed — and enduring the years of legal maneuvering that generally precede an execution in the United States — the Richards want the 21-year-old sentenced to life in...

    fter five years and more than 50 votes in Congress, the Republican campaign to repeal the Affordable Care Act is essentially over. GOP congressional leaders, unable to roll back the law while President Obama remains in office and unwilling to again threaten a government shutdown to pressure him, are focused on other issues, including trade and tax reform. Less noted, senior Republican lawmakers have quietly incorporated many of the law's key protections into their own proposals, including guaranteeing coverage and providing government assistance to help consumers purchase insurance. And although the law remains very unpopular with GOP voters, more than...

"There are times where the dysfunction in the Senate just goes too far. This is an example of it," Obama said. "Enough. Enough," he added. "Call Loretta Lynch for a vote, get her confirmed.

Also of concern is an approving testimonial for the nominee by “America’s Mayor,” anti-gun "Republican" Rudy Giuliani. While all “four hot button issues” in the ABC report are of general interest, two, amnesty for illegal aliens and ascertaining that everyone voting is, in fact, legally eligible to do so, have grave impacts on the future of the right...

If they hold together, her nomination will be defeated.

    Elizabeth Warren took one of her characteristically earth-shattering ideas to the Daily Show Thursday night: “If we would reduce the interest rate on student loans, young people would have a lot more money to spend.” “Right–and then they could buy more weed and then they’d be quieter!” Stewart interjected. That wasn’t quite the point Warren wanted to make—but it does a good job of highlighting how ridiculous her economic thinking–or lack thereof–is. Warren has tried—and failed—in the past to lower student loan interest rates by raising taxes on the wealthy. On Stewart’s show, she continued her never-ending quest to convince...

    A federal law passed in February 2012 to help middle class families by creating jobs and cutting payroll taxes included a section mandating the creation of a nationwide interoperable broadband communications system for law enforcement and first responders. The system, which is being created under the direction of the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), seeks to create a nationwide broadband network capable of being used for a variety of law enforcement purposes including remote surveillance, mobile biometric applications like field fingerprint scanning and facial recognition, as well as automated license plate reading. The system is currently in a pilot phase...

    Complete Headline: Oklahoma legalizes execution by GAS CHAMBER: State will kill prisoners with 'foolproof, fast and painless' nitrogen if lethal injection isn't possible Oklahoma introduced a law allowing it to use nitrogen gas to kill death row prisoners if lethal injections aren't available. Governor Mary Fallin signed into law a bill approving nitrogen as an alternative method of death, giving Oklahoma four different ways to enact its death penalty. The method, which involves pumping a chamber full of nitrogen and leaving a prisoner's body to die from lack of oxygen, has been touted as 'foolproof' by supporters, in the wake...

    Undocumented Immigrant Not A Criminal,’ California Attorney General Says April 17, 2015 LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — California Attorney General Kamala Harris made waves this week after telling the San Francisco Chronicle that “an undocumented immigrant is not a criminal.” On Friday, in an exclusive interview with CBSLA, Harris echoed that comment. “An undocumented immigrant is not a criminal,” she reiterated. “I’m a career prosecutor. I’ve personally prosecuted everything from low-level offenses to homicides. Unfortunately, I know what crime looks like. I know what a criminal looks like who’s committing a crime. An undocumented immigrant is not a criminal.” Those comments,...

    There are three things driving a surge in organic imports: 1.U.S. farmers have been systematically pushed into growing mostly GMO crops; grown primarily for fuel, animal feed and cheap processed foods. Russia even used our food supply as an example for the EU to dump us and join them instead. 2.U.S. consumers are not only demanding fresh, organic produce as well as non-GMO convenience foods – but also want meat, dairy and eggs from animals that were fed non-GMO or organic feed. 3.Other countries primarily grow non-GE crops, and plenty of organic. They’ve got the goods and they reap the...

    Barry Hammer didn’t know what hit him. A night out at a Celtics game with his wife and twin boys on Tuesday turned into a nightmare when he was punched in the face by a total stranger for no apparent reason. “I’ve never been punched in my life,” said the 38-year-old Auburn dad who’s still stunned by what happened in the mezzanine area of Boston’s TD Garden during his kids’ first Celtics game. Hammer said he believes he was likely the victim of a so-called “knockout game.” The game has been seen around the country and involves attackers who sucker...
  • Establishment GOP Plots to Empower Obama on “Progressive” Trade

    The New American ^ | 4/17/2015 | Alex Newmann
    In a controversial move that came as a shock even to many of the American people’s elected representatives, a coalition of establishment lawmakers in both parties — primarily Big Government Republicans — unveiled a secretly negotiated globalist plan to empower Obama with “fast-track authority” for “trade.” Under the bill, backed by top establishment GOP figures, the administration will have an even freer hand to negotiate pseudo-free trade deals with foreign governments — deals that critics say will harm U.S. sovereignty, the U.S. economy, and more. Despite GOP talking points about “free” trade and “markets,” Obama’s own AstroTurf group, Organizing for...

    Four companies and five individuals have been accused of illegally exporting to Iran high-tech electronics that could be used for military weapons. The 24-count federal indictment was unsealed Friday in Houston. The counts include conspiring to commit money laundering, money laundering and failure to file foreign bank and financial accountings. Prosecutors say the companies and defendants are charged with violating U.S. law by sending certain microelectronics, power supplies and other items to Iran. The exports violate U.S. sanctions as part of anti-terrorism efforts. "The prevention, investigation and prosecution of the illegal export of critical electronic system is one of the...

    The Senate Foreign Relations committee approved Tuesday afternoon the Corker-Menendez bill requiring that any deal the Obama Administration makes with Iran has to be approved by congress unanimously. Technically Congress won’t be voting on the deal, they will be voting on whether or not to remove the sanctions. However if the sanctions are not removed there will be no deal from Iran's point of view. But that's not the big story. After Sen. Corker announced a compromise everyone knew the bill would pass with bipartisan support, although no one could have foreseen unanimity. The big news is that Obama folded....
  • The Land of Magical Thinking: Inside Putin’s Russia

    This is the strangest book of note I have ever read. And that’s as it should be, since the subject is Russia, the strangest country of note I have ever visited. Peter Pomerantsev has written the most bitter indictment of a nation’s politics and society going wrong since William Shirer’s 1941 Berlin Diary. Pomerantsev has also written a calm and incisive report on the current state of affairs in Russia. Yet it reads like a comedy of manners, a dark and grotesque comedy of manners, a State Department white paper co-authored by Evelyn Waugh and Franz Kafka. And not only...
