    In what is likely to become a landmark case, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, in an en banc decision of all the judges in the circuit, struck down the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) rule which changed the definition of a machinegun to include bump stocks. Thirteen judges were in the majority, with three judges dissenting. The case is Cargill v. Garland. This correspondent wrote about it previously. Here is a summation of how the sixteen judges ruled. From the opinion: Of the sixteen members of our court, thirteen of us agree...

    Jan 6 (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Friday struck down a rule the Trump administration had adopted following a 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting that banned "bump stocks," devices that allow people to rapidly fire multiple rounds from semi-automatic guns. In a 13-3 decision, the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that despite "tremendous" public pressure to impose a ban, it was up to the U.S. Congress rather than the president to take action.... "The resulting circuit split should bring this decision to the U.S. Supreme Court's attention promptly and supply a suitable vehicle for...
  • Andrew Cuomo Grants Clemency to Former Weather Underground Militant, Father of San Francisco DA

    Disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo used his last hours in office Monday to grant clemency to several convicts, including a former member of the Weather Underground who is the father of San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin. Cuomo granted clemency to David Gilbert, 75, for his role in what became known as the “Brink’s heist,” an effort to steal millions of dollars to fund the activities of radical left-wing organizations. David Gilbert is serving a 75-years-to-life sentence for his role in the crime as a member of the Weather Underground, which stole $1.6 million in cash from the armored...
  • The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election

    That's why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it.“

    Wait long enough, and everything comes around again. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), one of the wokest womyn in the world, has this week blazed bold new trails by calling for the revival of not one, but two tried-and-true practices that have inexplicably fallen into neglect in American politics: Jim Crow segregation laws and the arrest of one’s political opponents. This brave leader said in a Detroit speech that if Trump Cabinet members failed to comply with congressional subpoenas, “they’re trying to figure out, no joke, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them? We don’t know. Where do...

    Explaining why he is moving his influential investment firm from the Silicon Valley, entrepreneur and venture capitalist Peter Thiel says it’s one thing for a culture to be “quite liberal” and another for it to be “totalitarian.” Thiel, a cofounder of PayPal and an early Facebook investor, was virtually alone among his colleagues as one of President Trump’s biggest supporters in 2016. He acknowledged in an interview Friday with the Fox Business Network that he “got heat” for his stance. “Fault Line: How a Seismic Shift in Culture is Threatening Free Speech” is available now at the WND Superstore.

    When I use the word "dissenter" I mean those who willfully deviate from the Traditions of the Catholic Church as handed down through the centuries. Two striking examples were made disgustingly evident today. The first came from Cardinal Wuerl, in the publication of two interviews he gave after the sin-nod ended. One was given to America magazine (and expounded upon by Vox Cantoris), the other was published by Religion News Service. I am not going into a comprehensive analysis of these interviews, else we'd be here for hours. It's clear that he is feeling emboldened by this pontificate to flaunt...
  • “Dissenters”, And The Slandering Of Orthodoxy

    Mundabor's Blog ^ | 2/19/15 | Mundabor
    Ah, words! How powerful they are with the simple! How many of the latter there are! Cardinal Wuerl has now made clear what the strategy of the Modernist faction (led by TMAHICH) against orthodox Catholics (factually led by the SSPX, and by Cardinal Burke in the Conciliar camp) in the months leading to October will be: comparing them to “dissenters”. Wuerl's aim is transparent enough: leveraging on the love for orthodoxy of your common Catholic to create an aura of rebellion around those who defend Catholic orthodoxy, whilst letting the heretics appear orthodox because the Pope sides with them. Mind,...

    Rorate Caeli ^ | 2/18/15 | Kenneth J. Wolfe
    It is an open secret in Washington, D.C., that Donald Cardinal Wuerl has effectively banned Raymond Cardinal Burke from entering the Archdiocese of Washington. Several sources have confirmed this to Rorate over the years, stemming from Wuerl's disdain for any priest or bishop who opposes giving Communion to Catholics who publicly dissent from Church teachings. Since Summorum Pontificum was issued by Benedict XVI in 2007, Cardinal Wuerl has instituted numerous obstacles to priests who wish to offer the traditional Latin Mass and sacraments using the 1962 books. Traditional confirmations have been denied, even requests from priests offering to administer the...

    Growth fueled by rising tide against Obama, economy, immigration issues. CNN) - The number of anti-government groups in the United States grew dramatically in 2011 for a third year, fueled by a rising tide against President Barack Obama, the struggling economy and illegal immigration, a report released Thursday finds. The three-year trend amounts to an "astounding" 755 percent growth since 2008, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center report "The Year in Hate & Extremism: The Patriot Movement Explodes." The report attributes the growth to "superheated fears generated by economic dislocation, the changing racial makeup of America, and the prospect...

    Pressure is on to change the Roman Catholic Church in America, but it's not coming from the usual liberal suspects. A new breed of theological conservatives has taken to blogs and YouTube to say the church isn't Catholic enough. Enraged by dissent that they believe has gone unchecked for decades, and unafraid to say so in the starkest language, these activists are naming names and unsettling the church...

    Global warming dissenters few at U.S. weather meeting Thu Jan 18, 2007 7:30 PM GMT By Ed Stoddard SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - Joe D'Aleo was a rare voice of dissent this week at the American Meteorological Society's annual meeting in San Antonio. D'Aleo, executive director of the International Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project, a group of scientists, doesn't think greenhouse gas emissions are the major cause of global warming and climate change. Researchers who hold such contrary views do not appreciate being lumped together with flat-Earthers. They are legitimate scientists who question the mainstream, but they are a distinct...

    MIRA LOMA - Opposing immigration protests held across the street from Jurupa Valley High School ended peacefully early Friday afternoon with both sides being escorted to their vehicles by Riverside County sheriff's deputies. "The students need to say their peace on campus. No matter what your view is, you should be able to say your peace," said Jurupa Valley High School parent Renee Cortez as the protests were winding down. The event started at 11 a.m. when a group of 50 to 75 people, including Minutemen Project and Save Our State group members, gathered on one corner of Bellegrave Avenue...

    Tiny dots produced by some laser printers are a secret code that can allow the government to track down counterfeiters, a new study concludes, raising the hackles of privacy advocates. The Electronic Frontier Foundation said its researchers recently broke the code behind the tiny tracking dots and said the US Secret Service confirmed that the tracking is part of a deal struck with selected color laser printer manufacturers to identify counterfeiters. "We've found that the dots from at least one line of printers encode the date and time your document was printed, as well as the serial number of...

    At the start of A Brief, Liberal, Catholic Defense of Abortion, authors Daniel Dombrowski and Robert Deltete present themselves as Catholics. They are both professors of philosophy at Seattle University, a Jesuit institution. Yet by the end of the book, they declare that the majority opinion written by Harry Blackmun in Roe v. Wade is "compatible with much of what we have argued in this book," and they defend "late-term abortions" as morally permissible where "the health and well-being of a pregnant woman" is involved. Their defense of abortion is liberal all right, but is it Catholic?

    Most good universities have at least one conservative professor on campus. When, for example, some group at Harvard wants to hold a panel discussion on some political matter, it can bring out the political theorist Harvey Mansfield to hold up the rightward end. At Princeton it's Robert George. At Yale it's Donald Kagan. These dissenters lead interesting lives. But there's one circumstance that causes true anguish: when a bright conservative student comes to them and says he or she is thinking about pursuing an academic career in the humanities or social sciences. "This is one of the most difficult things,"...
