  • How Do Those Targeted By The Southern Poverty Law Center Survive The Persecution?

    I want to understand what motivates the Southern Poverty Law Center in its persecution of those of us, who are considered to be Conservative Christians, Alt-Right, or Sovereign Citizens of the United States. It is abundantly clear we are under attack while groups like Black Lives Matter are given respect and left alone to “protest.” Also, we know that Google secretly chose Southern Poverty Law Center to monitor YouTube, giving them the power over our First Amendment Rights. Much of the Conservative YouTube community has been banned from YouTube, and it is a great loss and injustice.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – A federal judge on Monday refused to order the Trump Administration to pay California $1 million in delayed law enforcement funding it withheld to punish it for becoming a sanctuary state. U.S. District Judge William Orrick ruled in an afternoon order that it was too soon to tell which party’s interpretation of laws governing cooperation between state employees and federal immigration authorities would prevail. Because “the amount of money at stake is small compared to the state’s budget,” he concluded, California hadn’t shown it would suffer irreparable harm without the $1 million while the case is...
  • Representative Proposes Repeal of Gun-Free School Zone Act

    Congressman Thomas Massie has proposed repealing the controversial federal ban on guns within a thousand feet of a school. From Massie said the solution to school shootings is putting more than one armed guard at school or allowing teachers to be armed, adding that “98 percent of mass public shootings happen in a gun free zone.” “And we’ve labeled all of our schools as gun free zones. We need to take those labels off, and put our kids in that two percent category of being safe, instead of being in that 98 percent vulnerable category,” he said. Massie...

    When Lamonte McIntyre was exonerated for a double murder in October, he walked out of a Kansas prison with a clean record – but not a dime to his name, reports CBS News’ Dean Reynolds. After losing 23 years of his life behind bars, the state is offering him nothing. Kansas is one of 18 states that offer wrongfully convicted prisoners no compensation at all upon their release. “I think it’s unjust, but me being angry about it is not going to change it,” McIntyre said. Tricia Bushnell of the Innocence Project worked to win McIntyre’s release. She said McIntyre...
  • Question: Would a law abiding 18 year old have an age discrimination case against Wal-Mart?

    I suppose if Wal-Mart said.they'd stop selling ammo to Muslims, women, or blacks the media wouldn't be applauding their stupid gun stunt. I thought AGE was a federally protected status. So I ask if a LAW ABIDING 18 or 19 year old wants to buy a product that is legal in their state of residence, and the multibillion dollar company WAL-MART refuses, is this a civil rights case?

    Palo Alto Wants to Tear Down a Giant Computer-Egg Sculpture—But the Artist Says It Violates Her RightsAdriana Varella asserts that her work is protected under VARA.The Visual Artists Rights Act, known as VARA, could be set for another key test later this month, if the city of Palo Alto, California moves ahead with plans to remove a public artwork. Digital DNA, a large egg-shaped sculpture made of computer keyboards, has been situated in a downtown plaza since 2005. But after 13 years and numerous costly repairs, the city now says the work is prone to damage and is too expensive...

    A bunch of teens in Florida skipped school and went to Tallahassee to demand more of the same gun control that failed to save their classmates. Like petulant two year-olds, they whined and screamed when they weren’t given what they want when they want it.* In short, they failed their civics class. OK, kids. Here’s the down and dirty on what your teachers should have taught you about how the legislative process works… David! Take the Tide Pod out of your mouth! First, you were likely told (if told anything) that a citizen tells a legislator what he wants, the...
  • Warning Signs Ignored Again

    Reaction to the latest school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 people dead and many more wounded begins at the wrong end. It's not about passing more gun laws, which people intent on breaking existing laws will not obey; rather it is about heeding warning signs and doing something before it is too late. In the case of 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, who has been charged with premeditated murder, the signs were like a flashing red light. Former classmates offered a profile in danger to the media. They called Cruz, who had been expelled from the school for disciplinary reasons,...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions begins 2018 with a series of wins for President Donald Trump, delivering on several issues in a way that few others could, to the applause of the president’s base. First is immigration. The fact that January has seen not one, but two historic immigration cases head toward the Supreme Court can be explained by one simple fact: In Sessions, President Trump picked an immigration warrior. Two blockbuster cases are likely to be taken up and decided by the Supreme Court in the same week this year. One is Trump v. Hawaii, the legal challenge to the...

    For those who have forgotten the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli Act of 1986, here is a refresher. At the time, Congress PROMISED that the Amnesty given to ILLEGAL ALIENS would be a one time deal and would NEVER be brought up, again. President Reagan foolishly signed the bill into law.

    Pope Francis is expected to give the final blessing at the funeral Thursday of Cardinal Bernard Law, the former Boston archbishop who resigned in disgrace during the Catholic Church's sex-abuse scandal, prompting outrage from abuse survivors. Francis' prominent role in the ceremony has fueled the controversy over the decision to grant Law a full cardinal's funeral at St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican. The story was made into a celebrated movie, Spotlight, and the scandal forced the Catholic church to rethink the way it dealt with child abuse in the church.

    Southern Political Report ^ | Jan 17, 2018 | Hans von Spakovsky
    A federal judge in Alabama has thrown out a lawsuit against the state’s voter ID law, finding that the law doesn’t prevent anyone from voting because “nearly the entire population of registered voters in Alabama already possess a photo ID that can be used for voting.” For those who don’t, obtaining a qualifying ID can be done “with little to no effort and no cost.” In 2011, the Alabama legislature passed a photo ID requirement for both in-person and absentee voting. The law was enacted in an effort to strengthen voter confidence and to reduce the potential for voter fraud...

    Hello FReepers, I wanted to bounce my thoughts about the goings on in Washington/World as seen from my perch in Germany and see what you think. Again, we are seeing a “tempest-in-a-teapot (TITP)” with the latest purported “tell all” on President Trump and his administration. I say TITP, as everyone’s eyes (especially the MSM) are focused on this and missing all the other things happening in the world. These events move along with little coverage as everyone is focused on the latest salacious rumor. When the current tell-all becomes “old news” you can bet your bottom dollar that something new...

The ruling lets defendant Dimitar Petlechkov off the hook for FedEx’s claims for fraud, unjust enrichment and tortious interference with business relations, but he still faces criminal charges in Tennessee, where FedEx...

    A teenage girl facing criminal charges after she sent an explicit selfie through Snapchat to a classmate says she is not a criminal. “Sexting is common among teens at my school, and we shouldn’t face charges for doing it. I don’t want anyone else to go through what I’m going through,” the 14-year-old girl said in a statement released by the Minnesota chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota.
