Senate Democrats Renew Push to Allow Executive Branch Employees to Unilaterally Revoke Fundamental Rights. That’s not how the actual headline reads, but it is 100% true. The headline, from Politico, reads: Senate Democrats Renew Push to Keep Terror Suspects From Buying Guns. Terrorist Omar Mateen was NOT on a terror watch list. He wasn’t on the No Fly List or the Terrorism Watch List. He would not have been prevented from buying the guns he used
Two Days, two hits to concealed carry from federal appellate courts. Thursday the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled en banc that challenges to laws based upon the Second Amendment should be held to intermediate scrutiny, and that laws giving local law enforcement unlimited power in deciding who is permitted to carry concealed in public pass that scrutiny. That ruling overturned the previous 9th Circuit ruling in the same case, which came from a three judge panel
Like Bull Connor who can’t stop trying to deny the civil rights of African-Americans, the DC city government seems compelled to violate the civil rights of all those in the district who wish to exercise their fundamental and Constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. Thankfully for DC residents, the federal court has again smitten the hoplophobic little tyrants Cathy Lanier and Karl Racine as the federal government was there to force
One side of the debate on the great Transsexual Bathroom Controversy of 2016 that is scarcely mentioned is the one that values maximum freedom. Freedom for transsexuals, and freedom for those who wish to choose who uses their bathrooms. All that need be done is allow private property owners to decide for themselves who is allowed to go into what bathrooms. Problem solved. But this freedom is anathema to many on the right and the left.
“When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first thing to be bought and sold are legislators” - P.J. O’Rourke It’s not often that government corruption is laid as bare as it was in December in Austin. The city council there voted to increase profits for the three companies that are the exclusive legal taxi companies by eliminating their competition. Uber and Lyft, which no command economy could have even predicted, much less invented, have
"May Day began as a holiday for socialists and labor union activists, not just communists. But over time, the date was taken over by the Soviet Union and other communist regimes and used as a propaganda tool to prop up their regimes. I suggest that we instead use it as a day to commemorate those regimes’ millions of victims. The authoritative Black Book of Communism estimates the total at 80 to 100 million dead, greater
What do Randy Barnett, Marc Cuban, Glen Greenwald and Web Hubble have in common? They are all signatories to an open letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon created by the Drug Policy Alliance. Right now the U.N. is in the midst of a three day special session of its General Assembly on “the world drug problem.” The letter states in part, “Humankind cannot afford a 21st century drug policy as ineffective and counter-productive
Rare is the man whose devotion to liberty is such that he will never sacrifice his principles for personal gain. Equally rare is the man who will fight his chosen battles to the end at the cost of making enemies all along the way. Rarer still is the man who can do both with a combination of intellectual heft and sheer force of personality. John Taylor, who left us on April 6, was one of those
Where is the great left/liberal support for free speech? It seems like every time we see another story about punishing people for their speech these days, it comes out of the left. They seem to have transformed from free speech advocates to people who now have a strong appetite for destruction of those who say the “wrong” things. The latest outrage comes out of another leftist stronghold, West Hollywood. The mayor there, a petty tyrant
They say truth is the first casualty in war, and so it goes with marijuana. The United States government has been waging a shooting war against pot for at least 42 years - that’s when the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) was launched. Because we have several states and District of Columbia where this weed is not prohibited, you could be forgiven for thinking marijuana laws are seldom enforced or that violence doesn’t surround such enforcement.
