The latest gun control law in Connecticut has crossed a very frightening line. A standoff has been created between the government and tens of thousands of gun owners now considered felons. It marks the beginning of an Orwellian new phase. Gun owners saw it coming, as evidenced [...]
The recent arrogant remarks by the President that he does not have to wait for Congress to act because he has a pen and phone are nothing less than throwing down a gauntlet to both humiliate and deprecate not just the Congress, but eventually the Supreme Court [...]
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. [...]
The release of the proposed Fiscal-Year 2015 Budget released on Tuesday reveals that President Barack Obama and his minions have not abandoned their mission to control guns in the hands of U.S. citizens, even after the abysmal failures last year in the liberal-left’s quest to pass their [...]
This past week a long-existing pernicious problem finally broke through to wider attention – thanks in large part to a two-weeks-ago editorial by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Commissioner Ajit Pai.
The FCC Wades Into the Newsroom
Why is the agency studying ‘perceived station bias’ and [...]
Maybe three million people have signed up for Obamacare. That’s less than half the seven million that the administration expected by the end of open enrollment in March. There are several reasons for this shortfall: Many consumers (especially the young) find the coverage too expensive, many have [...]
By now everyone who has kept an intelligent eye on current events knows that Obamacare is not about making medical care less expensive or more available. Obviously, the cost of medical “insurance” plans has gone up instead of down, as originally advertised. So has the end cost to consumers of medical care. With higher [...]
When you analyze the public response to the State of the Union and the latest polling data, it’s clear that the President has lost a tremendous amount of credibility with the American public. I scarcely think he cares at this point. A tired, graying Barack Obama stood before Congress [...]
Why does the federal government appear so adamant to again blatantly ignore the law, power grab the Internet and re-impose Network Neutrality?
After all, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has already tried it – twice. And been unanimously rebuked by the D.C. Circuit Court – twice. [...]
Historical Background of FOIA
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. § 552, is a federal freedom of information law that sanctions the full or restricted disclosure of previously unreleased information and documents controlled by the United States government. The Act outlines agency records subject to [...]
Dictators are a curious and dangerous breed, but they have many common characteristics once they get power:
1. They usually rule autocracies, or a government with a single leader with no check on his exercise of power.
2. They usually retain or expand their power through use of the mass media.
3. They [...]
When the Constitution was amended in 1913 to allow election of U.S. Senators by public vote it was a major change in the way in which the federal government operated. It also radically changed the power structure within the legislature, to the effect that one of the major checks on federal power was removed, paving [...]
The filibuster has not protected the people against the tyranny of metastasizing federal power. The great tragedy of the Obama dictatorship was not the filibuster’s demise, but that House leaders blocked fulfillment of the very promise that made them leaders. Many of today’s worst problems are due not just to aggressive leftist Democrats who will [...]
Wyoming is now stuck with Arizona’s uber-liberal Republican Rich Crandall
Americans continue to reel from the unfolding outrages of Obamacare. And with the coming of the New Year, major new phases of the program are due to [...]
On December 7th, nearly 100 state legislators, many distinguished, representing 32 states, assembled at Mount Vernon.
They gathered at the homestead of George Washington, 15 miles from the capital city named for him. The purpose? To discuss how, safely, to revive an overlooked, but invaluable, provision in the United States Constitution to allow a [...]
