    It turns out that Senator Tom Coburn is a big supporter of Mark Levin’s new book The Liberty Amendments. When asked last night about this new 1000 plus page spending bill and the fact that the Senate will vote on it before anyone gets a chance to read it, Sen. Tom Coburn told Mark Levin that you can’t prevent this stuff from happening because all we have is a bunch of career politicians who only care about getting reelected. He says the only way to fix Washington is for the states to convene a Convention of the States and limit...

    New legislation in the Texas State legislature, sponsored by Steve Toth (R-Dist. 15), looks to stop Texas law enforcement officials from confiscating so-called “assault weapons” and high capacity magazines. The legislation is called the Firearm Protection Act. Toth’s proposal would create a Class A misdemeanor for police officers enforcing any new federal gun regulations. It also would establish cause for the state attorney general to sue anyone who seeks to enforce new federal gun regulations. It is one of several states-rights measures being offered by conservative state lawmakers nationwide in response to federal gun control proposals. “There’s a federal law,...

    There are ongoing debates over tax hikes and cuts in the United States domestic front, which makes it extremely frightening to imagine a world in which third-party, international organizations could impose taxes on countries. Global taxes would give the power to tax overseas to organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations (UN). The Center for Freedom and Prosperity released a study titled “Global Taxes Threaten Fiscal Sovereignty and Democratic Accountability” which can be viewed here. If these organizations succeed in passing their proposed global taxes, they would be applied in a "one size fits all"...

    CONCORD, New Hampshire, September 14, 2011 ( - The Obama administration announced Tuesday that it is bypassing state authorities in New Hampshire to restore Planned Parenthood’s funding directly. Earlier this summer the state’s Executive Council voted to redirect Planned Parenthood’s $1.8 million share of Medicaid funding to clinics that do not perform abortions. Immediately after, however, the Obama administration threatened to deprive all of New Hampshire’s Medicaid facilities of federal funding unless the Executive Council reversed its decision. Kansas and Indiana have received similar threats this year. Now the Obama administration says it has bypassed the Executive Council and awarded...
  • California has an immigration law too

    The media, local California governments and liberal groups are absolutely a hoot. Their ignorance is breath taking. Arizona's new immigration law is said to be racist according to reports in the media from a variety of liberal groups; it's not if you actually read it. Local California cities want to boycott Arizona which is questionable under the Commerce Clause of the US Constitution, but it is also incredible hypocrisy. For my non-lawyer friends, you probably didn't know that California also has a law pertaining to illegal aliens. Yep. It's been on the books since 1994! Good ole Prop 187. The...

    Aiken County, SC—The legal drinking age in South Carolina could change if two recent court rulings are upheld. The rulings in Richland County and Aiken County challenge the state’s current drinking age of 21. According to “The State” newspaper, Aiken County’s Chief Magistrate Judge Rodger Edmonds ruled last month the law, and a similar one involving the possession and consumption of beer and wine in the 18-20 age group, were unconstitutional. So, do you think the legal drinking age in South Carolina should be lowered from 21? Let us know in our web poll below:
