    Presidential Elections. Little over a week before the close of the federal convention, the senate was still responsible for appointing a president should no one obtain a majority, or if two with a majority had an equal number, of electoral votes. While their electoral college system minimized the possibility of “pre-bought” presidents, our Framers nonetheless cast a suspicious eye at the senate. The convention intended a ‘high-toned’ second branch to check the house, but had they gone too far? Their senate had the power to appoint the president, name his officers, appoint judges, make treaties and try impeachments. This constituted...

  • Inmates to Turn Guns from Buyback Program Into Gardening Tools

    The New Haven Police Department will be buying back guns Saturday and those guns will be transformed into gardening tools, with help from inmates, and provided to schools to harvest vegetables. Once people turn guns in for gift cards, officers will destroy those guns “under the tutelage of a local and renowned sculptor,” Gar Waterman, police said. Volunteer members of Connecticut’s prison inmate population will receive the destroyed weapons and Warden Jose Feliciano and staff from the Connecticut Department of Corrections will oversee them as inmates forge the pieces into gardening tools. Some of the tools will then be donated...

    San Joaquin County’s chief forensic pathologist resigned Tuesday, one day after the release of memos alleging Sheriff-Coroner Steve Moore interfered with death investigations to protect law enforcement officers. Dr. Bennet Omalu, and his colleague Dr. Susan Parson, who perform autopsies for the county, have accused Moore of trying to influence their medical findings, especially in cases where officers were involved in a person’s death. Omalu, a Nigerian-born neuropathologist, rose to national prominence in 2005 after he published his discovery in football players of a degenerative brain disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE. His discovery was documented in the 2015...

    One of the first police officers to respond to the Pulse nightclub massacre is losing his job with only months to go before he’s entitled to full pension benefits.

    It doesn’t snow much in Las Vegas, but snowflakes have shown up at UNLV. On Tuesday night, student groups, including Black Lives Matter UNLV, held a poetry competition outside the union. Sometime after the event concluded, seven North Las Vegas motorcycle officers rode through a nearby area. Black Lives Matter UNLV assumed the cops were trying to threaten them and posted a breathless comment on Facebook. “The police officers swarmed like sharks in the parking lot behind the SU (student union) Courtyard and then entered the SU Courtyard where motor vehicles are usually not allowed,” reads the post. “We stared...

    ouTube is finally admitting it has a major problem — and robots won’t be able to fix it. Google’s video-streaming service said it plans to hire more than 10,000 new employees next year in a scramble to clamp down on the offensive and inappropriate content that has been plaguing its site. Last month, it was revealed that pedophiles have been posting disgusting comments to videos of scantily clad children. That was after an uproar earlier this year over YouTube videos promoting terrorism and racists leaders like David Duke that had caused big advertisers to flee. “We need an approach that...

    A $100 million fund to appease America-hating players while sticking the knife in patriotic fans. The dying National Football League is choosing its America-hating, national anthem-protesting multimillionaire players over patriotic sports fans by funneling close to $100 million to leftist charities like those founded by admitted communist Van Jones. The corrosive fairy tale, embraced by professional football, that police use black Americans for target practice is malicious nonsense but it is a useful lie, good for direct-mail campaigns and MoveOn solicitations. With this new initiative, NFL Commissar Roger Goodell is affirming for the umpteenth time that it is in the...
