    An Oregon man has been fined $500 by the state government for suggesting that yellow traffic lights should last slightly longer. The Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying hit Mats Järlström with a fine for unlawfully engaging in the “practice of engineering” by studying the state’s traffic flow systems.

The rulings were handed down...

    In examining notes taken of their conversations with the victim’s mother, I was taken aback by how contemptuous they are of her. They talk down to her, as if she were the perpetrator, not the mother of the victim of this monstrous attack. It is outrageous. And it gets worse. The supposedly seven-year-old rapist who put his penis in the girl’s mouth, urinated on her and in her mouth, and who reportedly owned the blue pocket knife that he used to threaten her, was never even removed from his home. That family still lives next door to the victim. For...

    Four Republican senators—James Lankford (Okla), Ted Cruz (Texas), and Utah's Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee—have introduced legislation aimed at barring the Department of Justice from using settlement money to fund liberal interest groups. "Settlements obtained from banks found guilty for their role in inflating the mortgage bubble in 2008 ought to be used to compensate those damaged by these egregious practices," Sen. Lankford said. "Instead, the Department of Justice has been funneling this money to favored liberal activists. This is a perversion of justice and an end run around the appropriations process." Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) belittled the...

    Guillermo Espinoza's efforts to retrieve $19,894 seized by Arkansas State Police were brought to an abrupt halt by Judge Chris Williams. State prosecutors asked that the money be returned to Espinoza since no criminal charges were being pursued against him. Williams rejected this request on the grounds that Espinoza had missed the 10-day deadline for filing the papers to initiate restitution. As Williams sees it, "the rules on civil forfeiture are clearly spelled out in statute. Whether or not Mr. Espinoza was or wasn't engaged in any illegal activity is irrelevant. Arkansas law gives the government the right to seize...

    Today, we honor a man whose words agitated, illuminated, inspired and liberated millions. Martin Luther King Jr. was a civil rights warrior with weapons, not of blade or bullet, but of ideas. In 2016, those ideas are spoken by many, yet followed by few. We're a nation still obsessed with the hue of our skin (hello #BlackLivesMatter movement), while ignoring the more valuable substance that lies within. To our own detriment, we often judge a book by its glossy cover. Martin Luther King Jr. was no different. He became enamored with the facade of Planned Parenthood and its glossy cover...

    Federal prosecutors have decided not to press criminal charges against two former executives at the Department of Veterans Affairs who were accused of manipulating the agency's hiring system for their own gain. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia said Thursday it has declined a referral from the VA inspector general for criminal prosecution of Diana Rubens and Kimberly Graves. The inspector general said in a report this fall that Rubens and Graves forced lower-ranking regional managers to accept job transfers against their will. Rubens and Graves then stepped into the vacant positions themselves, keeping their pay while...

    (CN) - A California man who was jailed in a case of mistaken identity and then sexually assaulted by his cellmate cannot prevail on his false imprisonment claim, a state appeals court ruled.     Valentino Bocanegra says his ordeal began when he was pulled over and mistakenly arrested by Palm Springs police in July 2011 on an outstanding warrant issued for another man.     Bocanegra said that during what began as routine traffic stop, he was cooperative with police and produced a driver's license showing his name as "Jose M. Gonzalezbocanegra."     However, the officers assumed he was "Jose Gonzales," who was then wanted for a...

    Last Thursday night, more than 100 community members gathered at the Waterloo Center for the Arts for a panel discussion of Racial Justice. The forum engaged the philosophy behind the Black Lives Matter movement and discussed the system of racial injustice here in the Cedar Valley and in the nation. Panel members included the Reverend Abraham Funchess, the Reverend Belinda Creighton-Smith, the Reverend Mary E. Robinson, Public Defender Aaron Hawbaker, and Chief Dan Trelka. As panelists eloquently explained, the Black Lives Matter movement is about reasserting the inherent dignity and respect of a group of people who have been diminished...

    Full title: How to steal $75,000 from the poor in one Day's work - traffic court is a tax collection scheme masked as justice The new liberality concerning marijuana possession in the United States is long overdue, but let’s not exaggerate how much progress we’ve made. Users might not be ending up in jail as frequently as they did 10 years ago. But cops, judges, and courts still exercise arbitrary power to ruin people’s lives, and they continue to do so at astonishing rates, all over the country. I recently saw this firsthand. I sat in a municipal traffic court...

    The travesty imprisonment of Orville “Lee” Wollard will continue, with the blessing of Gov. Rick Scott. Last week, Scott cast the decisive vote to keep Wollard locked up for firing a warning shot after being attacked in his home by his daughter’s boyfriend. Police said the boyfriend ripped the surgical stitches from Wollard’s abdomen. The 60-year-old first-time offender has already served about seven years of a mandatory 20-year term. A Polk County jury had convicted him of shooting into a dwelling and aggravated assault with a firearm. A charge of child abuse was included because the boyfriend of Wollard’s daughter...

    WACO (September 23, 2015) The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals refused Wednesday to force a lower appellate court to lift a gag order in the case of one of the 177 bikers arrested following the deadly Twin Peaks shooting, in spite of defense arguments that the order was not only improper, but also that the state has violated it. In an order released just after noon on Wednesday, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals said: "In this procedural position, we decline to act; based on the complaint raised by the real party in interest (the defense), the trial court is...

    Do you remember Lewis "Scooter" Libby? In 2003, the Department of Justice appointed a special counsel to investigate allegations that Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, unlawfully disclosed the covert status of CIA operative Valerie Plame. Yet Plame may not have been a covert undercover agent, based on the formal government definition of that role. And even if she were, it was widely known at the time that Secretary of State Colin Powell's subordinate, Richard Armitage, had most likely disclosed her status earlier. In other words, Libby was in an Orwellian position of being accused of a crime...

    A fireman who raped a nine-year-old girl after rescuing her from a blaze then told her he would murder her mother if she told anyone is facing jail. John McGinn also raped and abused his partner, making her feel 'like a piece of garbage', and beat up another girl before giving her sweets to keep her quiet. The young girl attacked by the firefighter did not reveal her ordeal for two decades because she was so scared of his threats. McGinn, 56, claimed the accusations were 'downright lies' and insisted he would rather die than be a paedophile, saying his...

But the answer isn't forthcoming. I don't mean to insult. I'm genuinely asking for clues. The progressive outlook seems negative. Everyone's being cheated. Everything's unfair. And offensive. Especially that. I've lived in this country for 52 years. I never knew it was such a cynical place. Instead of seeking ways to move the nation forward, spiritually and economically, the political left is on an inequity hunt....
