    While dissenting from the recent Supreme Court decision rubber-stamping same-sex “marriage,” Justice Antonin Scalia warned his colleagues that with “each decision ... unabashedly based not on law” the Court moves “one step closer to being reminded of [its] impotence.” And a new poll shows that another such step has in fact been taken, with more Americans supporting the idea that states should have the right to ignore federal court rulings. Writes Rasmussen Reports, “A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 33% of Likely U.S. Voters now believe that states should have the right to ignore federal court rulings...

    They said it was a “protest” not a terrorist attack. Now there’s more proof that they lied. The Obama administration knew al-Qaeda was planning an attack in Benghazi to “kill as many Americans as possible” ten days in advance. Judicial Watch reported: Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified “Secret” documents from the Department of Defense (DOD)and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was committed by the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked “Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman” (BCOAR),...

    FULL TITLE: In Confirmation Hearings, Elena Kagan Stated “There Is No Federal Constitutional Right to Same-Sex Marriage”... Obama and Shrillary aren’t the only ones to “evolve” rather dramatically regarding the federal desecration of marriage on behalf of the radical homosexual agenda. Legal Insurrection recalls testimony by leftist Supreme Court Injustice Elena Kagan during her confirmation hearings. This is so straightforward, you had to know she didn’t mean it: Senator John Cornyn: Do you believe that there is a federal constitutional right to samesex marriage? Kagan: There is no federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage.

The Public Employee Benefits Program board voted in November to remove language in the state’s self-funded and HMO plans that specifically excluded therapy for gender dysphoria. Brock Maylath, president of the advocacy group Transgender Allies Group, on Wednesday hailed the change as a “significant step” for the transgender community. Previous language in the state insurance design plan excluded treatment designed to alter physical characteristics and any other treatment related to...

Hurray for the stalwart Americans who resisted the demands of Obama, the Republican leadership, and the big-donor claque, but Speaker Boehner plans to give Congress another chance this week to make this dangerous mistake. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) would turn over to globalists the power to issue regulations about U.S. trade, immigration, the environment, labor and commerce. It’s called a “living agreement” which means the globalists can amend and change the text of the so-called agreement after it has...

Moreover, the problem was worsening. “The findings establish an increasing frequency of incidents,” said the authors. “During the first 7 years included in the study, an average of 6.4 incidents occurred annually. In the last 7 years of the study, that average increased to 16.4 incidents annually.” The White House could not possibly have been more pleased with the media reaction to these findings, which were prominently featured by the...

The State Department is updating the ITAR, which implements the Federal Arms Export Control Act (AECA). The net effect of this new ITAR amplification would be to reclassify gun blogs, forums, chat rooms, and firearms “how-to” web pages as...

The video dates back to the early 2000s, in the show’s fifth season, when Mosby was in college and still going by her maiden name, Marilyn James. Mosby was on the program with a rather bizarre case: She was suing business owner Ryan Johnson for damages to the apartment she lived in while at college.

    It is easy to forget that, in 1991, the U.S. murder rate was well over twice what it is today. In a speech last week at Columbia University, Hillary Clinton demonstrated she doesn’t understand that ending what she called the “era of Mass Incarceration” will endanger lives. These days, it’s popular to sympathize with criminals. We saw this when Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake “gave those who wished to destroy space to do that” and ordered police to “stand down.” We saw it again when she failed to return the governor’s calls, as he repeatedly tried to get her permission to...

    The redefiniting of marriage allows for the creation of the social lie: “Any two people who are married can, on average, do just as good a job at rearing children as two, biological parents can.” The State demands that we all blindly believe this lie. To say "This is a lie - many of these children are hurting" is to lose your job or your business. Meanwhile, children raised by same-sex caregivers miss their bioligal parent(s) deeply. But they cannot say this with being abused. They are also more likely to have more difficult lives. Is this just? Is this...

    Baltimore Received $1.8 Billion from Obama’s Stimulus Law City burned despite ‘massive investment’ implemented by president BY: Elizabeth Harrington May 4, 2015 5:00 am The city of Baltimore received over $1.8 billion from President Barack Obama’s stimulus law, including $467.1 million to invest in education and $26.5 million for crime prevention. President Obama claimed last Tuesday that if the Republican-controlled Congress would implement his policies to make “massive investments in urban communities,” they could “make a difference right now” in the city, currently in upheaval following the death of Freddie Gray. However, a Washington Free Beacon analysis found that the...
  • The Seven Key Ways that Redefining Marriage Brings About the Decline of America

    Many people think that the resistance to redefining marriage stems from a desire to be unfair to homosexuals. It doesn’t. Resistance mainly comes from the knowledge that when the State redefines marriage then this harms the ability of heterosexuals to get married and stay married. And if redefinition harms the ability of heterosexuals to get married and stay married then children suffer. And if children suffer then society finds itself facing more social problems and financial debt. The USA declines.

    The Blue-City Model Baltimore shows how progressivism has failed urban America. April 28, 2015 You’re not supposed to say this in polite company, but what went up in flames in Baltimore Monday night was not merely a senior center, small businesses and police cars. Burning down was also the blue-city model of urban governance. Nothing excuses the violence of rampaging students or the failure of city officials to stop it before Maryland’s Governor called in the National Guard. But as order starts to return to the streets, and the usual political suspects lament the lack of economic prospects for the...
  • Political Correctness: The Cause of Same-Sex Marriage, Social Decline and a Growing Oppressive State

    Traditional moral reasoning shows same-sex marriage creates immense harm in the social fabric. Politically correct moral reasoning shows redefinition to be fair - to be all well and good. If political correctness wins, we all have to go around pretending - under the force of the law - that all is well and good. Meanwhile society will be slowly collapsing all around us and we, and our children, will have to suffer the increasingly poor outcomes in silence. Help.

    [SNIP]...What more can one say about events? I am not Nostradamus, but I must say that going back over my work of posts, I think this little blog has called developments pretty accurately. Of course, I admit, it wasn't too hard. The Obama disaster at home and abroad was foreseeable from Day One of The One. Now we see a new disaster befalling our beloved but increasingly ragged Republic. The Hillary candidacy. You don't need me to summarize or link to the growing pile of stories about the corruptness and general sleaziness of the Ex-FLOTUS and her charming rogue of...

    In the wake of the tragic murders of two Michigan children whose mother tortured them before stuffing them into the family’s freezer, lawmakers are calling for more stringent regulation of homeschooling in the state. The proposed legislation from state Rep. Stephanie Chang, a Detroit Democrat, would require homeschooled children to be inspected twice per year by a licensed social worker or law enforcement officer. The bill would also require homeschooling parents to register their children — like dogs or sex offenders — with the superintendent of the school district in which they reside. Michigan is one of eleven states that...

    Full title: U.S. Marshal Shown Rushing Woman and Smashing Her Cellphone To Stop Her Videotaping A Public Arrest...We have another video of a police officer destroying the cellphone of a citizen who is filming an arrest in clear violation of her constitutional rights.

The video shows the woman standing out of the way while filming an arrest. She is actually backing up when an officer rushes...

    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.

    Between the shrimp on a treadmill study and then the IRS's Star Trek-themed training films, there have been more than a few cries of outrage from taxpayers fed-up with their hard earned dollars seemingly wasted on hyper-frivolous reports and projects, the federal government doesn't seem to have gotten the message. Case in point would be the article published by The Washington Free Beacon on April 17, 2015, which details the government dropping nearly a half million dollars to study the levels of sexual satisfaction for men after their first "penetrative same-sex experience." With the impressive project title of FIRST AND...

    Hillary Clinton is entering the presidential race in a cloud of scandal surrounding foreign contributions to the Clinton family foundation and her use of a private email account and server to conduct official business while secretary of state. But she and her husband are no strangers to scandal. There often seemed to be no end of the scandals during President Bill Clinton's two terms in the White House and Hillary Clinton's campaigns for the Senate starting in 2000 and the Oval Office in 2008. Political experts began diagnosing "Clinton Fatigue" long ago.

    Judiciary Federal court: no liability for PA judge who made up criminal charge By Rachel MartinPublished April 13, 2015watchdog.org A federal court recently told a Lawrence County woman she’s simply out of luck and can’t sue local officials, including a Common Pleas judge who apparently made up a criminal charge that was used to place her on electronic monitoring. A judge has absolute civil immunity, even if the action “was in error, was done maliciously, or was in excess of his authority,” the three-judge panel ruled in its six-page opinion. Judge Thomas Piccione had ordered Lynn Van Tassel to report...
