  • New Calls For Special Prosecutor in Clinton Email Probe Because of Conflict of Interest

    LawNewz ^ | June 30, 2016 | Chris White
    There were new calls on Thursday for a special prosecutor in the Clinton email investigation amid reports that former President Bill Clinton met privately with Attorney General Loretta Lynch earlier this week in Phoenix. The legal watchdog group Judicial Watch requested that the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General investigate the meeting on the grounds that, at the very least, the meeting gives the appearance of impropriety. The FBI and, ultimately the DOJ, will likely soon have to make a decision as to whether or not to charge Hillary Clinton with a crime over her use of a...
  • COME ON MAN! DOJ Official Files Motion To Delay Hillary Clinton Emails for 27 Months!

    The Department of Justice has decided to file a motion that will hold over Clinton emails with her crew for the next 27 months. It's up to the courts right now, but many Americans are pissed they would even try this stunt. Is this what Loretta Lynch's meeting with Bill Clinton was about? They don't even hide their corruption anymore. Most of our politicians are guilty of treason. This action only proves how corrupt the Clinton's are. Republicans and Conservatives have tried, cried and begged Democrats to look at who these evil people are. Obama is willing and required by...

    Looking at the man who asked this question, I won't say he was a plant to throw the presumptive GOP nominee off track, but I will say there are some American voters who do not want to defend Israel anymore, but that won't be the policy of Donald Trump. This elderly gentleman was able to mention two issues to Trump before he sat down. One of them was about the sanctity of life and which Trump agreed to. The second one is where the man said the following: I opposed to our wasting our military in the Middle East, on...
  • Moving Forward on Forfeiture Reform

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 6/26/2016 | Jarrett Skorup
    Forfeiture is the process of transferring of property or cash from citizens to the government and is done at the state and national level. Sometimes, it happens through the criminal justice system. A person is charged with and convicted of a crime and the court determines if the the defendant acquired assets (usually cars or cash) through illegal activity. If the court says yes, those assets can be forfeited to the state. But, increasingly, law enforcement is using civil forfeiture — a process which goes through the civil system rather than the criminal system. In civil forfeiture, assets can be...
  • Spiking Pensions: Another MEA Executive Involved in Special Deals

    The secretary-treasurer of the state’s largest teachers union is one of several top union executives involved in a pension spiking scheme in public school districts. The arrangement increases the union officials' retirement payouts from the state-run school pension system. The officials are all former school employees who left public employment to work for the union full time. Under the spiking arrangement, however, they are still carried on school payrolls — and as a result are still accumulating pension credits with the school retirement system. Rick Trainor was a teacher for 21 years at the Mount Pleasant school district. In 2011...

    CNN's Christiane Amanpour took her left-leaning, pro-European Union activism to a new level on Tuesday during an interview of pro-Brexit politician Daniel Hannan. Amanpour, who recently blasted the referendum as an example of "xenophobia", tried to implicate the British member of the European Parliament as somehow partially responsible for supposed post-vote "hate crimes." Hannan didn't take her clear bias sitting down, however: "You guys have been shouting 'racist' so long, you're not listening to what we were actually saying...if I was relying on CNN...I would think that this was nativist vote, a protectionist vote. It's the opposite." [video below] The...

    Abandoning reality At one point, you were probably worried about ISIS. It seemed like the horrific terrorist organization was on a real roll as its barbarian forces slaughtered their way across the middle east. They raped, tortured, burned, beheaded, crushed, and acidically-disolved their enemies while our leaders promised that they were being dealt with in the harshest possible way. We’d “contained” them, we’d “diminished” them, and - most importantly - we’d decimated their command and control capabilities. According to President Obama, the J.V. team is on the run.

This is not supposition, it is fact. Treason is defined under the law as giving aid or comfort to a declared enemy in a time of war.

On the other hand, We The People of a Republican Constitution are composed of sovereign individuals. The people we send to government are fellow citizens and servants who exercise limited, enumerated, and “just” powers.

    Wishful thinking, or a legitimate perspective on demonstrations of buyer’s remorse in the UK? It’s no secret, after all, that the Obama administration opposed the “Brexit” referendum that passed last week, which makes John Kerry’s skepticism about its actual implementation a bit self-serving. That doesn’t necessarily make him incorrect, however: The US secretary of state has raised doubts about whether Brexit will ever happen, suggesting most leave campaigners do not truly believe in Britain’s divorce from the EU and do not know how to achieve it. Claiming there were a number of ways in which Thursday’s vote could be “walked...

    In March, the United Auto Workers reported that its membership grew 1.3 percent in 2015. This may come as a surprise to some because a substantial number of UAW members work in right-to-work states like Michigan. But the report highlights something worker-freedom supporters — and even some UAW officials — already knew: Right-to-work can be good for unions. Right-to-work laws do nothing to diminish a union’s ability to organize a workplace or a worker’s ability to become a union member and pay dues. A recent report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that in 2015, unions in what...

    When the modern abortion movement first began, a century ago, Planned Parenthood founder and hero Margaret Sanger was quite clear on her belief in the theory of eugenics. She wanted to reduce the numbers of undesirable people in America (you know, all those “other” races and ethnicities), and abortion was the easiest way that sprung to mind. But it didn’t catch on; it was too extreme. So, when a renewed effort for legalization of abortion really kicked into high gear in the 1960s, it was couched in a mantle of compassion instead. “Since people will get abortions anyway,” we were...

    May marked the 10th anniversary of the Pure Michigan advertising campaign, which is designed to lure tourists to the Great Lake State. It is sold as a program that leads to economic development and yields more in tax revenues than it spends. But our research shows that state-funded efforts to promote tourism are a net negative. Lawmakers should defund the Pure Michigan program. The state operates a travel bureau within the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, which has overseen the $261 million appropriated by the Legislature for Pure Michigan since fiscal year 2006. The campaign features advertisements about Michigan and is...

Attendance at MLS games has been strong and growing, averaging 21,574 fans per match in 2015 — more than the NBA’s average of 17,826.

Women are much less likely than men to say women should be required to register for Selective Service when they turn 18, according to a poll conducted June 18-20 by The Economist/YouGov. Thirty-nine percent of women supported registration for women, compared to 61 percent of men. The question is largely theoretical since the United States ended the draft in 1973 as the Vietnam War was winding down....

The final GOP-authored House Benghazi report released Tuesday included new details of a two-hour video teleconference call the night of the attack, a session led by White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough. Clinton and top Defense officials were also on the call, which was supposed to center on how to get Americans out of harm's way. But...

Back in ‘08, Dems were shrieking about how McCain would represent a third term” of sorts, but now that Hillary’s on the stump, that’s exactly what they’re offering. Never mind that only 29% of the American people think the country is headed in the right direction. If she’s elected, you’ll...

    But....but...but....guns are bad! The NRA is pure evil. It’s a monstrously disgusting, vile, xenophobic organization that hates - let’s go through the list - gays, Jews, blacks, Muslims, “the children,” women, Mexicans, Rastafarians, transgenders, 7th Day Adventists, Democrats, dogs, Mormons, old folks, Nordic peoples, Native Americans, and most likely Pacific Islanders. That’s what Hillary Clinton, her DNC allies, and her media cronies want you to believe. The NRA is the end-all-and-be-all of evil empires and, if there is something good for which a person can stand, the NRA stands against it. ....Oh, and a new poll reveals that it has...
  • SCOTUS tosses Texas abortion law, designed to prevent more Kermit Gosnell butcher shops

    Even basic sanitary requirements are too much for the pro-aborts to accept With Anthony Kennedy joining the four Justices who are always liberal (as opposed to Kennedy’s liberal-when-he-feels-like-it approach to interpreting the law), the Supreme Court tossed out the very modest Texas abortion restrictions that simply required abortion clinics to meet the same safety requirements as every other medical clinic, including doctors who are sufficiently credentialed to be able to admit patients at local hospitals. These restrictions were put in place to prevent more Kermit Gosnell-style butcher shops from springing to life. But you can forget that. Any restriction on...
  • Gaddafi Loyalists Who Admin Targeted Came To USA's Aide During Hillary's Benghazi Blunder

    No matter how much the media runs the defense, and the Democratic Party tries to cover this up, the American people must be told the truth about the Democratic nominee for President. Hillary Clinton is tainted as well as crooked. Clinton was so bad at her job, today's Benghazi Final Report reiterated that Muammar Gaddafi loyalist soldiers went in and got our guys out. The same group of people the Obama Administration targeted while Hillary was Secretary of State, are the same who helped us in a time of need. Sure you won't hear the media say that because it...

    Just 13 percent of the local governments whose retirement systems are administered by a statewide entity have set aside enough money to pay the pensions promised to their workers. The Municipal Employees’ Retirement System (MERS) administers pension systems for 728 local cities, villages, townships, agencies and more. But only 97 of those systems have adequately funded their pension obligations, according to the operation’s most recent report that covers up to Dec. 31, 2014. Local government employees covered by MERS are owed some $12 billion worth of retirement benefits — but their employers have not set aside enough to cover the...

    When Derrick DeAnda helped a family escape from their rolled-over car he was just trying to be a good Samaritan. He didn't expect to be billed $143 by the late-arriving EMTs for "medical care." "I didn't need any 'medical care,'" DeAnda said. "I had one small cut on one of my hands. The EMT gave me a band aid. I can't see how that could possibly cost so much." The bill from Cosumnes Community Services District was described as "standard practice" by Cosumnes Deputy Chief Mike McLaughlin. "If you're at the scene of an accident that we attend you're going...

    A Palestinian anti-Semitic blood libel about Israel and water A double crime was committed when Mahmoud Abbas, the Chairman of the Palestinian Authority, an interim self-governing body that undemocratically controls the Arabs in sections of Judea & Samaria, spoke before the European Parliament on June 23. In his speech he spouted a Jew-hating blood libel as medieval in its words as those that led to the massacre and isolation of European Jews centuries ago. Having begun his speech by condemning incitement to violence, he inexplicably said;

    Britain’s departure from the EU rattled the stock market, refreshed the patriots, rankled the globalists, and rocked effete politicians. Even with the approaching storm, not a bad day for freedom Well, they did it! Great Britain ripped up their 40-year-old membership card in the European Union and may become “Great” Britain again: you know, sovereignty, security, and stability. Britain was a major player in the European Union, a bloc of 28 nations, making it the biggest trading zone in the world. Membership in the EU permits citizens of one nation to travel and live in other member-nations. Last year, Britain...

    Pay attention, folks because the EU--someday soon to be followed by their UN cousins--are about to show you a bad case of The Uglies Bwaaaaaaaaa! The screech of outrage coming from the pinpricked pompous European Union suffering its first setback in the more than 40 years of its lavish existence. Who would ever have thought that one sunny day real life would come along and let the air out of the EU’s balloon; that the sheep would finally abandon the oppressive shepherd en masse? The naked woman riding the bull at EU Brussels headquarters has fallen into the dust.

    For all intent and purposes, these protesters asking Barack Obama for rights for "illegal" immigrants can be deported as well as the ones breaking the law, and I said it. I am against breaking families up too, send them all back, that will take care of everything. Where do these rioters and agitators get off stopping people from entering buildings and shutting down highways as a form of protesting these days? This is not a peaceable assembly as protected by the 1st Amendment. All should be arrested, thrown in jail and have to pay for all the lost time by...

    ...Then there was a major mistake when the equivalent of Moe, Larry and Curly rushed to downgrade the British debt to AA. Too bad these are the same rating agencies that failed to downgrade U.S. mortgages. I would ask MOODY’s, S&P and FITCH: How is it possible to grade European debt when the ECB has no centralized taxing authority to stand behind it? The ECB is a bottomless pit and the U.K. will be proven smart by relieving itself of an enormous liability.

    This squib began as a review of Professor Randy Barnett’s latest work, Our Republican Constitution. However, once I got into his explication of the two contradictory visions of the Constitution and what it means for Western Civilization, I decided to linger on the high points. If the Leftist avalanche of executive branch lawmaking, group rights, collegiate snowflakes, moral relativism, and horrid supreme court decisions under a Constitution designed to secure unalienable rights leaves you puzzled, then Professor Barnett’s latest book will help clarify the insanity that is modern progressivism. For those familiar with his previous works going back to The...
