    New York City’s cops say the town is in trouble – big trouble. The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association of the City of New York commissioned a survey of 6000 of its members and their opinions are sharply at odds with the rosy picture being projected by Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio. In part its findings were, “The overall survey results show that members believe the relationship with the public and elected officials has worsened in the past few years, with a lack of support and respect for police officers the top reason cited.

  • Donald Trump’s Abortion Answer Wasn’t Wrong, the Question Was

    London Telegraph ^ | April 6th, 2016 | reasonmclucus
    Donald Trump was correct when he said a woman who had an outlawed abortion would likely be punished. However, the most likely way of ending abortions would be through regulation of those providing medical treatment. Chris Matthews question implied that abortion would become a criminal offense. In that case the woman as a participant in the “crime” would be subject to prosecution probably as an accessory, an accomplice or a “co-conspirator”. The courts might not allow prosecution unless the woman was potentially subject to prosecution. In such a legal environment prosecutors might use the offering of immunity from prosecution to...

As much as you’re paying attention to what actually happened - PayPal hops on the corporate self-righteousness/pandering bandwagon by welching on a commitment it made to expand in the state mere weeks ago - pay attention to how USA Today approaches the story, particularly the words it uses: PayPal is canceling its planned North Carolina expansion due to the state’s new anti-gay law, just two weeks after making the initial announcement.

    Attorney General Roy Cooper, who is challenging Gov. Pat McCrory for governor, spoke out against House Bill 2 Tuesday morning during a press conference. Cooper said his office, "will not defend the constitutionality of the discrimination in House Bill 2." McCrory signed the bill, called the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, last Wednesday after it was passed by the North Carolina Senate. The law was in response to Charlotte's nondiscrimination ordinance that allowed transgender individuals to use public bathrooms of the sex with which they identify.

    A new poll by the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding shows that 10% of American Muslims think their religion should be the main source of American law.

Only 55% of American Muslims said their religion should not be a source of American law. The poll's results show that at least 37% – and possibly as high as 45% – of American Muslims believe that their religion should be either the main source or a contributing source of...

    The Associated Press — The Supreme Court has agreed to referee a pricy patent dispute between Samsung and Apple. The justices said Monday they will review a $399 million judgment against South Korea-based Samsung for illegally copying patented aspects of the look of Apple's iPhone. Apple, based in Cupertino, California, and Samsung are the top two manufacturers of increasingly ubiquitous smartphones. The two companies have been embroiled in patent fights for years. The justices will decide whether a court can order Samsung to pay Apple every penny it made from the phones at issue, even though the disputed features are...

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking: it’s the Republican attendees who committed the acts of violence against the protesters.

    Attorney General Bill Schuette wants to withdraw as legal counsel for seven former or current Michigan Department of Environmental Quality officials concerning legal matters surrounding the Flint water crisis. Schuette, on Thursday, filed a motion in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan to withdraw as legal representative of the officials, including former MDEQ Director Dan Wyant. The motion would separate the legal representation of Gov. Rick Snyder and the MDEQ (as a government agency) from that of individuals who have been named in a lawsuit filed concerning the crisis. Wyant resigned on Dec. 29. Six other...

    A group of Harvard Law students have occupied one of the school’s halls, saying there is no space for marginalized students and staff on campus. The occupation, which began Monday night, is an effort to create such an environment, according to a statement from the students. The group, which calls itself Reclaim Harvard Law, took to the lounge in Wasserstein Hall around 8 p.m., renaming the spot “Belinda Hall”—a nod to a former slave of the law school’s donors. Around 20 students spent the night in the lounge Monday after toting along air mattresses, blankets, and suitcases, The Crimson reported....

    A Louisiana judge sided with abortion advocates Wednesday and ruled against a state law that would ensure abortion clinics are meeting basic health and safety requirements. Baton Rouge District Judge John deGravelles blocked the law from taking effect and declared it “unconstitutional” in a Tuesday ruling, ABC News reports. The pro-life law would protect women by ensuring that abortionists have admitting privileges at a local hospital, that informed consent protections apply to all abortions, and that facilities that perform more than five abortions maintain proper licensing. Attorneys for the state immediately asked Judge John deGravelles to stay Wednesday’s order while...

    The Knesset on Monday night approved the first reading of the so-called “Transparency Law”, initiated by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked. The bill would require Israeli NGOs who receive more than half of their funds from foreign states to disclose their sources of funding and identify themselves as "foreign agents" when lobbying MKs. 50 MKs voted in favor of the bill and 43 voted against. The bill has been criticized due to the fact that it will only affect left-wing organizations, who receive funding from European countries and the United States, as opposed to right-wing groups who are more likely to...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 1/30/2016 | Tom Gantert
    According to two retired city of Ann Arbor employees, some police officers nearing retirement engaged in a pension spiking scheme that involves writing more traffic tickets than usual. The scheme could add hundreds of thousands of dollars in lifetime pension benefits for these individuals, and millions in additional taxpayer burdens. Writing more traffic tickets generates extra overtime pay because officers are required to spend time in court when tickets are challenged by drivers. Pay boosted by extra overtime in an officer’s final three years increases, or spikes, the annual pension payouts by artificially boosting the final compensation figure used in...

    Because Cruz kept a repeat offender in prison, Brooks says he's not a good Christian. David Brooks does not like Ted Cruz. In an escalating series of attacks, Brooks has gone from saying that Cruz doesn't "live within the confines of reality" and is "nakedly ambitious" - a "selfish Machiavellian" - to now saying that Cruz's rhetoric is "Satanic" or perhaps "Mephistophelian." But Brooks really tears into Cruz in his latest column, arguing that his speeches are "marked by what you might call pagan brutalism." He claims that Cruz's "career and public presentation" are devoid of "the Christian virtues: humility,...

    The Catholic impact on Western law can hardly be overestimated.A common accusation against Roman Catholicism is that it is legalistic, slavishly beholden to an elaborate set of rules and precepts and thereby resistant to the movements of the Holy Spirit or the mercy of God. The charge may not be entirely without its merits, especially at certain times in the Church's history, in certain places, and with certain figures, but for it to be evaluated fairly an important distinction must be drawn between the prominent use of or focus on law on the one hand and legalism on the other....

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled Tuesday that Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. overstepped his authority when he halted the law's enforcement in May. The panel found Scullin had not been specifically assigned to the case, though he had been assigned an earlier, related case.

  • The Right to Bear Arms (DC Bar bias and Laws the way the left wants alert)

    For centuries there has been debate over the Second Amendment and the scope of the right that it secures. There was sparse definitive guidance on what exactly is safeguarded under the Second Amendment until 2008, when the U.S. Supreme Court defined the core meaning of the amendment in District of Columbia v. Heller. At the time, the District had some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. Nearly all District residents were barred from owning handguns, and they were also prohibited from keeping firearms of any sort within their homes unless they were disassembled or bound by a...

    Some senior U.S. officials involved in the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal have privately concluded that a key sanctions relief provision – a concession to Iran that will open the doors to tens of billions of dollars in U.S.-backed commerce with the Islamic regime – conflicts with existing federal statutes and cannot be implemented without violating those laws, Fox News has learned. At issue is a passage tucked away in ancillary paperwork attached to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, as the Iran nuclear deal is formally known. Specifically, Section 5.1.2 of Annex II provides that in...
  • Obama Passes Law BANNING FREE SPEECH: Media “No Longer Allowed To Name Mass Shooter”

    President Barack Obama held a press conference today to announce signing into law a bill that prevents U.S. media outlets from naming the shooting suspect in any of their news coverage. This is is tyranny. His illegally seized power cannot usurp our first amendment and the rights of the freedom of the press. For years Islamic supremacists like Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Rauf and others demanded that the media stop reporting on jihad terror because it might cause “islamophobia” (euphemism for opposition to jihad terror). It was unthinkable before Obama. Now that they have their stooge in the White...

    Caffeinated Thoughts ^ | September 30, 2015 | Shane Vander Hart
    Carly Fiorina’s recent interview with Jan Mickelson on WHO Radio on Friday is getting some attention namely because of what she denied. “Here in Iowa when you say Supreme Court decisions are the law of the land that sets us off because Iowans got bludgeoned by court decisions here, and we went through Civics 101 and we don’t accept propositions that court decisions are the law of the land,” Mickelson said. “Actually, with all due respect Jan, I think that is a quote from someone else, not from me. I know there are many Republican candidates, Kasich among them, who...

    He slammed his fist on the table in frustration and anger as he told the story of losing his house and business to eminent domain. His wife was startled as the dishes bounced on the jostled table and tears welled up. They felt violated, robbed, abandoned and fearful. “How can this happen in America?” they ask themselves in a daze of disbelief. Last week’s Language of Liberty article was about eminent domain. A practice that is all too often abused by all levels of government. However, eminent domain does have a proper use under the Constitution. As an educational organization,...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 9/24/2015 | Jack Spencer
    A bill to protect Michiganders from being prosecuted for unknowingly violating thousands of state laws and regulations could soon face a vote in a key committee of the Michigan House of Representatives. House Bill 4713 would restore a standard for defining what constitutes criminal liability. The move would affect numerous state statutes, especially regulatory violations. Under mens rea (Latin for ‘the guilty mind’), more than just the act of violating a law must be considered to establish criminal liability; the intent of the accused person also has to be considered. On Sept. 17 the House Oversight Committee held a hearing...

    Two of the biggest global challenges of the past decade -- terrorism and the 2008 financial crisis -- have given rise to some well-intentioned legislation that has missed the mark. The U.S. Treasury Department is charged with maintaining the nation's financial health. Things like money laundering and terrorist financing jeopardize that health, but there's so much shady dealing that it's impossible for government bureaucrats to keep up. Nonetheless, rules are passed, and affected parties are expected to be able to show that they've paid some lip service to the new mandates. Compliance is accepted as a cheap substitute for due...

    A Saudi businessman has donated $10 million to Yale Law School to establish what school officials hope will become the country's top center for the study of Islamic law. Abdallah S. Kamel made the award after meetings with university representatives including Yale President Peter Salovey. Kamel, chief executive of the Dallah Albaraka Group banking and real estate enterprise in Saudi Arabia, has sponsored a lecture series on Islamic law for the last three years. Yale officials say the Abdallah S. Kamel Center for the Study of Islamic Law and Civilization reflects a growing interest at Yale and other institutions in...
