    BERNALILLO, NM (KRQE) – Parents are concerned a teacher is pushing her political beliefs instead of teaching world history. Bernalillo Public Schools Interim Superintendent Keith Cowan said the school district would take the appropriate action after a teacher’s political rant was recorded by a sophomore Bernalillo High School student on Thursday. It’s unclear what action is being taken against the teacher. “If you have a history teacher teaching you that Trump is good then I feel really scared for you,” the woman said in the recording.

    Michael Bloomberg has continued to pump money into state politics to find ways to infringe on the Second Amendment. His latest attempt was stopped in New Mexico on Monday, 13 March, 2017.  A key vote against the measure came form Representative Eliseo Alcon (D) Milan. From nmpolitics.com: A legislative committee on Monday effectively killed a bill to expand background checks for gun purchases — an issue that drew large crowds to the Capitol as well as big campaign contributions and intense lobbying and advertising. The House Judiciary Committee voted 7-6 to table House Bill 548 after a lengthy hearing....

    Democrats’ last-ditch effort to pass a Michael Bloomberg-endorsed ban on private gun sales was rejected on Monday, bringing an end to any chance that such a measure could be passed this legislative session. On March 12, Breitbart News reported that State Representative Stephanie Garcia Richard (D-Los Alamos) sponsored HB 50. It mandated universal background checks on gun purchases throughout New Mexico. The bill failed, and instead of accepting failure, Democrats moved to change the number on the gun control bill, from HB 50 to HB 548, in hopes of getting it through the House Judiciary Committee on Monday. Their efforts...

    New Mexico Democrats are assigning a new bill number to failed gun control legislation in hopes of reviving an effort to ban private gun sales. The failed bill–HB 50–and will likely be renumbered HB 548 and taken up by the NM House Judiciary Committee on Monday. HB 50 was sponsored by State Representative Stephanie Garcia Richard (D-Los Alamos). It mandates that New Mexico residents seek out an agent of the state–a Federal Firearms License holder (FFL)–and undergo a background check on every gun sale, whether retail or private. In other words, HB 50 is about universal background checks. The NRA-ILA...

    We told you last week about New Mexico’s House Bill 50, which criminalizes most private firearm transfers by law-abiding gun owners. Late last week, an even more restrictive committee substitute of the Bloomberg-backed measure passed the House Judiciary Committee and is headed to a vote by the full House. The substitute bill actually erases many of the confusing exceptions from the earlier version and simply requires that any transfer or loan of a firearm lasting more than five days be conducted with a federal background check. In the case of a loan, when the gun is returned, another background check...

    Being on the hook is not going to be pretty when interest rates are raised back up, and debts come due. At a personal level, it will mean more stress and juggling to make ends meet. For the larger economy, it will mean cities and states unable to meet obligations or balance their budgets – ending in bankruptcy, and bailouts. Meanwhile, millions of people are relying on that money to keep coming in order to survive. Something is going to go very wrong. Relying upon government to function and send you money is not a secure plan. The mathematics are...

    A woman and her son living in New Mexico are fighting in the courts for what they call a “right” to have a sexual relationship. Thirty-six-year-old Monica Mares and her son, Caleb Peterson, 19, of Clovis, New Mexico, were separated after Peterson was born when she gave him up for adoption, but say they “fell in love” after they were reunited earlier this year and Peterson moved in with his mother. They claim they have an orientation called “Genetic Sexual Attraction” (GSA) and want to “raise awareness about it.” “This whole case is about whether I have the right to...

    Across the United States, government employees’ right to bear arms while working is being restored.  One of the pernicious erosions of the right to bear arms that occurred over the last 50 years is the right of government employees to bear arms while employed.  At the start of the progressive era, government employees were considered part of the elite, and could bear arms when and where others could not.In the first laws adopted by the new state of Oklahoma, statutes were adopted en masse from other states.  One of them exempted “public officials” from a ban on carrying weapons,...

    Those who live close to the Mexican border in Arizona and New Mexico consistently express two sentiments. First, the number of illegals crossing the line has plunged from a flood to a trickle in most places. The feds and the political spinners love that because it allows them to say, with some truth, that the border is as secure as it's ever been. But they leave out the second part. The worst of the worst, the drug smugglers, vagabond bad guys, and mulitiple deports who use the border as a turnstyle are still out there, as dangerous as ever, as...
