    The seal of the U.S. Department of Justice reads, “Qui Pro Domina Justitia Sequitur”—“Who prosecutes for Lady Justice.” Depictions of Lady Justice are as familiar as they are instructive: she stands blindfolded while holding the scales of justice, representing her unyielding devotion to equal justice under the law. Contrary to this ideal, the DOJ today appears to be increasingly motivated by partisanship. Compounding the problem, it has access to the powers of the modern surveillance state. As someone passionate about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, I believe there is no higher priority than addressing this danger. The tragic...
  • How Will OSHA Push An Unpopular Vaccine Mandate?

    09/23/2021 7:59:13 PM PDT · by lightman · 31 replies ^ | 23 September A.D. 2021 | Sarah Lee
    The Biden administration’s threat of a vaccine mandate – which happened two weeks ago now – was likely a shock to many of the 100 million American workers who will be immediately impacted, but the waiting, while the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) develops the requisite rules, is, as they say, the hardest part. While employees in the private and government sectors anxiously await word on exactly how they might be punished if they are hesitant to have vaccines with dubious effectiveness injected into their bodies, state legislators, small business advocates, health care workers, unions, and even Black Lives...

    "So little of what could happen does happen." – Salvador DaliTick-Tock-Tick-TockThis is what happens when you have no objective source for news – an organization that simply gathers and presents events and facts for you to process. You get masses of disinformation served up with bias from both sides; and conspiracy theories. Now I love a good conspiracy theory as much as the next guy but at a certain point my pragmatism kicks in. The Storm is not coming, there is no Great Awakening that will arouse the slumbering sheeple. Joe Biden will be sworn in on the 20th regardless...

    One day it’s Novemberand Thanksgiving,the next thing you know it’s Christmas.and then blammo! Boxing Day.The name, origin and traditions of Boxing Day are disputed, as are most things these days. But in America to the best of my knowledge it’s just a day set aside for post-Christmas-sales shopping and returns. Back in the olden days (pre-cooties) people would storm back to the cheerfully over-decorated malls they had sworn just one week earlier to never ever visit again in search of super-sales on stuff they don’t need, don’t want and likely will end up giving away by the Fourth of July.The...

    So here’s the deal: stopped in North Platte NE last night. Although most restaurants are open we were exhausted and picked up a pizza for dine in. I can report that most normal people in flyover aren’t wearing masks, at least not at rest stops. When we got settled in our room I discovered I’d left my charger for my computer in Park City (so by my count I now have three there). So dispatches from the road will be short and sweet.

    I’m going to leave you to Taco Tuesday on your own as we’re leaving for the dark side (Gretchen’s Miserable Michigan} tomorrow and what can I tell you? It’s a lot of work no matter how many times you do it. So feel free to start your day in the pre-dawn hours with Ms. P’s Breakfast Tacos. I suppose there are worse ideas, although none come to mind immediately. Improper social distancing down at the chicken food truck, without masks: looks pretty naughty. I don’t know what’s in a breakfast taco but I’m guessing maybe chicken precursors?  Perhaps with green...

    WND EXCLUSIVE Obama's U.N. plan: Globalize cops against 'violent extremists' Conservative Christians 'becoming the targets' Published: 7 days ago Leo Hohmann President Obama’s new “Strong Cities Network,” announced with little fanfare last week at the United Nations, appears to be another effort to strip authority from local police departments and to demonize conservative Christians, say advocates of civil and religious liberties. The stated goal of the program is to connect local police departments with their peers around the world in an effort to combat “violent extremism,” according to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who announced the program to the U.N. on...

That’s right, the entire first female family went to Broadway to watch the Tony Award winning Kinky Boots. Why? Because we’re on vacation! And we’re not going to Martha’s Vineyard for another 4 weeks. First Lady Michelle Obama and her two daughters brought their dancing shoes to the Saturday matinee of the hit Broadway show “Kinky Boots.”The First Family, despite the...
  • Chilling

    07/17/2014 7:18:13 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 14 replies ^ | July 17, 2014 | Judge Andrew Napolitano
    "Chilling" is the word lawyers use to describe governmental behavior that does not directly interfere with constitutionally protected freedoms, but rather tends to deter folks from exercising them. Classic examples of "chilling" occurred in the 1970s, when FBI agents and U.S. Army soldiers, in business suits with badges displayed or in full uniform, showed up at anti-war rallies and proceeded to photograph and tape record protesters. When an umbrella group of protesters sued the government, the Supreme Court dismissed the case, ruling that the protesters lacked standing -- meaning, because they could not show that they were actually harmed, they...

    “In this era of mass incarceration, the police shouldn’t be trusted any more than any other witness, perhaps less so. That may sound harsh, but numerous law enforcement officials have put the matter more bluntly. . . . Police departments have been rewarded in recent years for the sheer numbers of stops, searches and arrests. In the war on drugs, federal grant programs like the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program have encouraged state and local law enforcement agencies to boost drug arrests in order to compete for millions of dollars in funding. Agencies receive cash rewards for arresting...

    I have repeatedly written articles about the complete disregard for the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts's as well as the disregard for the United States Constitution by elected officials in this State. Today, however, Massachusetts goes above and beyond into what can only be viewed as a true case of Big Brother knocking down the doors of American citizens. Today, by a vote of 113-36, the Massachusetts's House voted to grant the State's Governor the ability to force residents into mandatory vaccination in the event the Governor feels so inclined. It also grants him the right to declare martial...

    Sunday, January 25, 2009 Surprise!... Dem's "Stimulus Package" Looks Like Billion $$$ ACORN Bonanza ACORN is the largest radical Leftist group in America today. This radical group worked closely with the Obama campaign during the election. But, the community organizing group was not open about this. The photo below was scrubbed from the ACORN website before the election: One of Barack Obama's first big "community organizer" jobs involved ACORN in 1992. Obama also trained ACORN employees. He represented ACORN in court. Obama worked with and protested with ACORN. His campaign donated $800,000 to ACORN this year for voter registration efforts....

    Perhaps you've noticed an abundance of "Top Ten" lists in recent weeks. As usual, the mainstream media has churned out a variety of year-in-review pieces of late. Two events vied for top billing on all those lists -- the financial meltdown and the presidential election. At present, it isn't clear which of those debacles presents the greater threat to our nation. The factors leading up to the economic collapse in the last two quarters are clear (see Economics 101). What is not clear, however, is whether we can limit the damage to a mere recession. On the other hand, we...

    Obama supporters have lampooned Sarah Palin for saying that a vice president is "in charge of the U.S. Senate." That is not a strict reading of the Constitution and its envisioned duties for the vice president, they acidly remark. But what do they care about strict readings of the Constitution? According to them, an evolving or "living" Constitution trumps the literal words of the document.
