  • Gura asks Judge Scullin to hold D.C. in Contempt in Palmer Carry Case

    In the ongoing legal battle by Alan Gura to force the District of Columbia City Council to respect the second amendment of the Constitution, a request that the City government be held in contempt was file on Tuesday, the 18th of November, 2014.  It seems to come as a response to the city claiming that the Court lacked jurisdiction, because no request for a finding of contempt was fired. Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr gave the DC government until the 4th of December, and Gura's reply by the 11th of December.  From us.archive.org: TEXT SCHEDULING ORDER: regarding the #...

    The lovers of freedom and the supporters of limited government cannot merely wait the clock out on the Obama presidency In America today, just like in Lake Woebegone, every child is above average and every child gets a trophy. We may score low in international grade comparisons but we rank number one in self-esteem. In other words, American students may not be doing well but they think they are. Those of us old enough to remember how Dad could control the situation with a look and when you got in trouble in school your parents didn’t sue or contact the...

    Only people Liberal Democrats will ever help, are themselves, and the only legislation they like to work on are illegal things which help to destroy our country It seems as though the one thing that should have killed Obama’s latest Amnesty Plan should also have killed anything else he has concocted in six usurped years in the office of POTUS is his never-yet-proven-legitimacy to actually hold that office. It is obvious by now that Americans have given up on proving that Barack Hussein Obama has usurped the highest governmental office in the United States and nobody seems to give a...

    Within three months, the dangerous components of the President's immigration plan will become operational. The clock is ticking on a response. Will Republican leaders finally show some courage? As time goes on, President Obama is becoming much more provocative with the GOP. For example, he met with congressional Democrats, but no Republicans, then announced his long awaited plan for executive amnesty, giving 5 million illegal immigrants a pathway to work permits and relief from possible deportation for 3 years. After getting shellacked in the mid-terms, Obama has not compromised with Republicans, he moved further to the political left. It was...

    Freedom Economics “Capitalism” is the cataclysmically inappropriate word we use to describe the most successful economic system in the history of the world. We must cease its use at once and forevermore. “Capitalism,” the word, maligns capitalism, the economic system. We must understand and accept this. No longer can we conservatives, we capitalists, remain purists about this term. The Left has won, and handily. They have contorted the word capitalism into a grotesque mockery of its true nature. Worse, having sullied the term, they have also sullied the concept. If the economic system of capitalism were termed something different than...

    Coach is Right ^ | November 22, 2014 | Jim Emerson, staff writer
    A retired National Security Agency (NSA) senior agency executive warned the agency in 2009 that the program to collect, store and analyze American phone records wasn’t providing enough intelligence to be effective. Prior to the revelations made by Edward Snowden, dissenters within the Intelligence agency warned that the collection program wasn’t worth the backlash if the program became public. The role of the NSA was to eavesdrop on hostile foreign entities, not American citizens. Now the agency has tarnished its reputation of guarding America to become the free world’s secret police. The AP–ever faithful to its dear leader–noted that Obama...

    In the face of nearly two dozen videos of him saying he lacked legal authority to unilaterally enact immigration reform, President Obama went ahead and did so, citing a “higher authority.” “As President of the United States, I felt myself hemmed in by the limitations placed on the office by the US Constitution,” Obama admitted. “As a human being, though, I could not bear the continuing injustice inflicted on the people who have entered this country illegally.” “My dilemma was how to reconcile the guidelines of an aging framework for a nation's government and the call of my conscience,” Obama...

In states like Idaho, Colorado, Utah, Oregon and Kansas, Friday said, school shooting statistics are remarkably lower than the rest of the nation.

    If you cannot effectively fight back immediately, escaping and fighting back may be the next best thing.  The best chance to fight back and prevail is usually before you are put under restraint.   That does not mean that you have no chance after that point.   Your assailants may be sloppy or overconfident.  You many be able to seize an opportunity.  Getting away should be more important than revenge.   If you manage to escape, try not to give yourself up to allies of your assailants, as happened recently in Syria. Washington State had two home invasions recently.  The first,...

    Obama's Executive Immigration Order was a brilliant move on his part. Politically, that is. Obama needed to cater to the radical anti-border crowd, but he also needed to limit the legal challenges that would have mounted from all directions with a blanket amnesty. So what did he do? Nothing. No seriously, Obama didn't really do much of anything on the action front. He basically proclaimed that our government (his government these days) will no longer deport illegal immigrants. Obama made it sound like he was doing a lot. He made it sound like he was giving the radical amnesty groups...

    Yesterday the UK Independence Party (UKIP) has gained its second seat in Britain's House of Commons, the lower House of Parliament, with Mark Reckless elected in the Rochester and Strood constituency, in Kent. The victory was obtained through a comfortable, though not dramatic, majority of 2,930 votes over the Conservative runner-up Kelly Tolhurst, a majority which many say may easily be lost again at the May 2015 general election for the UK Parliament. This, and especially UKIP's first Member of Parliament, Douglas Carswell, elected on 9 October 2014 in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, with a landslide of 60% of the vote,...

Senate Bill 1103 was advanced Wednesday on a 10-7 vote as four Republican committee members joined six Democrats in support of the measure. The bill now goes to the full House, where a vote is expected soon. The Republicans who voted yes were: committee chair Rep. Frank Foster, R-Pellston; Rep. Wayne Schmidt, R-Traverse City; Rep. Dale Zorn, R-Ida; and Rep. Gail Haines, R- Waterford. Rep. Foster lost his GOP primary re-election bid in August and Rep. Haines is term limited, so neither will be back...

    I teach students to make a decision about being put under restraint before they get into a deadly force situation.   By restraint, I mean that the aggressor/attacker is attempting something, or commanding you to do something, that significantly reduces your options for resistance.  One of the simplest of these is for someone to aim a gun at you from a vehicle, and order you to get into the car.  It is almost always better to run for cover at that point.  Criminals do not want to move you somewhere for your benefit. Other examples are: they are going to...

    To the Editor: During a presidential debate in 1984, President Reagan said, “I believe in the idea of amnesty for those who have put down roots and who have lived here, even though some time back, they may have entered illegally.” As Republicans contemplate their response to President Obama’s immigration action, they should consider that Reagan and George H.W. Bush took unilateral action to protect undocumented immigrants from deportation. In both cases, their actions were eventually incorporated into legislation passed by Congress. Congress, now led by Republicans, has the power to legislate a 21st century solution on immigration and the...

    In 2007, Michigan's Legislature and governor hiked the state's individual income tax, extracting more from a struggling private sector in order to avoid government spending cuts. Now is the time to revisit that decision. Tax revenues have grown, the budget is balanced, and this state can afford to be less of a burden on its residents. There is never a good time to raise taxes, but extracting more from taxpayers is especially inopportune at the onset of a national recession, which was the case in late 2007. The state had already lost one out of every 11 jobs from 2000...

    God calls for evangelism by sharing His love; Islamic scripture exhorts believers in Allah to inflict pain, suffering and death to infidels Tuesday, November 18, 2014 witnessed another murderous incident in an escalation of a holy war being waged by Muslims in Jerusalem. A synagogue in West Jerusalem was apparently independently targeted by two East Jerusalem men, killing four rabbis holding dual American and British citizenship and one police officer. Brandishing guns and meat cleavers, the terrorists reportedly were reacting to rumors that Israeli Jews are attempting to destroy Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem and were responsible for a bus...

    Lies and deceptions surrounding the manufactured global warming crisis created for political and financial gain at the expense of millions of people The area south of Buffalo, New York was buried this week in 76 inches of snow, quite possibly the largest 24-hour total in U.S. recorded history. At the same time, the desperate advocates of global warming/climate change are finding more novel ways to push their carbon dioxide reduction and carbon footprint taxation in order to redistribute the wealth from the United States to the rest of the world. David Ignatius suggests in the Washington Post that climate should...

    First off, this post is not here to join the "What Lena Dunham did to her little sister" pile on. There's nothing I can possibly add that hasn't already been written, and if you're new to this story you can read Kevin Williamson's piece that opened the floodgates. Equally entertaining is how she reacted to Truth Revolt having the audacity to... quote her. OK, maybe I do have one point to make1 on this element. But that's not why I'm writing this post. The idea  came to me the other week when I found an interesting article in The Nation, What...

    Tyerre Allan was only 25 years old, and he just got out of jail for a robbery that was done years ago. Police say he was already a suspect in other crimes. From wishtv.com: Police later identified the suspect as 25-year-old Tyerre Allen of Indianapolis. He was also identified by IMPD detectives as a suspect in other robberies in the Indianapolis area. There were five or six customers in the Indiana Cash America Pawn shop, as well as 3-4 employees.  It appears that Tyerre, just out of jail, tried to ply his trade.  You would think he would realize the dangers of...

    Sen. Ted Cruz is lobbying hard to prevent government regulation of the Internet, but one measure the Texas Republican supports is expected to create a sizeable budget hole for his state. Cruz, a likely presidential candidate in 2016, spent ample time last week promoting a permanent extension to an expiring ban on federal, state, and local taxation of Internet access that is currently being considered in Congress. The measure, which passed the House earlier this year, is popular in both parties and considered a lame-duck "must pass," as the ban is set to lift on Dec. 11. But a lesser-known...

    Link to video of Maria Butina at the Texas NRA meeting. In 2010, it was reported that the Russian Parliament was considering loosening the Russian law on self defense, to allow Russians who legally own firearms to carry them for the purposes of self defense.   The Russian Justice Minister, Alexander Konovalov was firmly against the possibility. In 2013, it was reported that the Russian organization, The Right to Bear Arms, had only 1,000 members.  It was founded by Maria Butina, the 24 year old redhead pictured in the video and below. Now we learn that Russian law has been changed...

    Detroit bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes called on the state to address the underfunding of local government pension benefits in his oral opinion. He stated that the state has a “constitutional, legal and moral obligation to assure that the municipalities in this state adequately fund their pension obligation.” A government’s own employees should not be its largest creditors, nor should retirement benefits they have earned be placed at risk, as happened in Detroit. There are a number of current bills that would help local governments avoid underfunding, and the Legislature should consider passing them. When an employee earns pension benefits, the...

    The Obama administration refuses to enforce Federal laws which Obama finds ideologically or politically objectionable, while claiming that He is obligated to enforce them.On November 19th, House Speaker Boehner released an article titled 22 Times President Obama Said He Couldn’t Ignore or Create His Own Immigration Law. Here are Boehner's introductory paragraphs: With the White House poised to grant executive amnesty any day now despite the American people’s staunch opposition, on Sunday President Obama was asked about the many, many statements he made in the past about his inability to unilaterally change or ignore immigration law. His response was astonishingly brazen: “Actually, my position hasn’t...

    In-your-face Treason: We did the right thing with our recent elections. But--as predicted--Obama will not recognize them. He and his criminal syndicate are--and have been--completely lawless After the landslide elections on 4 November 2014, Obama was said to be even more furious with the “stupid American voters” than usual. And, with his now usual arrogant bravado he is—with his recently announced coming actions—saying to the American people “Your petty little elections mean nothing to me. I’m beyond your laws as well as your wants and needs. Once I’m fully ensconced in and with my dictatorship and can openly eliminate anyone...

    Will this discretionary amnesty encourage an unstoppable chain migration? As President Obama is getting ready to make his announcement on immigration on Thursday, November 20, 2014, the Congressional Research Service is advising Congress through legislative attorneys, Kate M. Manuel and Michael John Garcia “on the scope of the Executive’s discretionary authority over immigration matters, including with respect to the enforcement of immigration-related sanctions and the granting of immigration benefits or privileges.” (”Executive Discretion as to Immigration: Legal Overview,” November 10, 2014, R43782) The precedent has already been set in 2012 following the “executive initiative” known as Deferred Action for Childhood...

    Hamas founding document: “Islamic state in Palestine in place of Israel and the Palestinian territories, and the obliteration or dissolution of Israel ... killing the last Jew on earth…” One might think that being a rabbi praying in a synagogue in an ultra-orthodox neighborhood of Jerusalem, Israel was about as safe as one could get, but you would be wrong. Jews, no matter where they are, understand they can be attacked and killed for being Jews. It is the price of their Covenant with God (Exodus, Chapter 12). This has been part of the history of Judaism for three millennia....

    “USA!””USA!” Eight p.m. this evening is not the D-Day Announcement for Barack Obama’s long-threatened Executive Amnesty. Executive Amnesty is what already happened at the southern border last summer. Today the Ego King is merely taking advantage of television network prime time to make it official. The Ego King’s crooked crown tilts perilously leftward because during his long crown coveting days, his allowed his head to swell beyond fitting, and like the purple tunic he donned for the Beijing Summit of a week ago, this is a crown making it clear that King Barack Hussein Obama 1st suffers serious delusions of...
