When certified firearms instructor Shawn Moore posted a photo of his 11 year-old son on Facebook the last thing he expected was a SWAT style raid on his home. The picture showed his son, a licensed hunter, holding his new birthday gift, a .22 caliber rifle.
While Moore’s son proudly displaying his semi-automatic personal defense rifle was completely legal, an anonymous tipster contacted New Jersey’s Department of Children [...]
From Washington’s Blog:
I am a proud Democrat, and part of the commitment that makes me such is my belief that any president who blatantly violates his oath of office would be committing an extremely grave crime, which deserves to be prosecuted as such.
In other words: I believe in equality before the law.
The presidential oath of office, as given in the U.S. Constitution, is:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I [...]

The U.S. government allowed Mexican drug cartel hit men working as “confidential informants” for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to murder people inside the United States, an American federal law enforcement supervisor told the private intelligence firm Stratfor in e-mails released by WikiLeaks. ICE neither confirmed nor denied the allegations when contacted by The New American.
The explosive leaked documents containing the claims were part of a massive batch [...]
Surviving slavery, segregation and discrimination has forged a special pride in African-Americans. Now some are saying this hard-earned pride has become prejudice in the form of blind loyalty to President Barack Obama.
Are black people supporting Obama mainly because he’s black? If race is just one factor in blacks’ support of Obama, does that make them racist? Can blacks’ support for Obama be compared with white voters who may favor his [...]
IN THE HOUSE of Commons, on 18 September 2012, MP Paul Flynn was kicked out of the UK parliament for telling the defence secretary Phillip Hammond that he was using British soldiers as human shields for ministers’ reputations by sending them to die in vain in a war which was lost.
He compared Hammond and other government ministers to politicians in the First World War “who lied and soldiers died.” Paul [...]
The Israeli government on Wednesday accused the White House of lying by denying that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had requested to meet US President Barack Obama later this month in the US.
The accusation will likely serve to further escalate diplomatic tensions between the two countries, which have ramped up in recent days.
War is imminent:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel’s “biggest interest is preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear power.”
In regards [...]
Moscow forcefully rejected on Wednesday Hillary Clinton’s accusation that Russia was supplying Syria with helicopter gunships that could be used against civilians, as Syria announced it had “cleansed” the rebel town of Haffa of armed fighters.
Speaking in Tehran, Sergei Lavrov, Russia’s foreign minister, said Moscow was instead “completing contracts that were signed and paid for a long time ago. All of them are contracts for what are solely air defence systems.”
As controversy rages around the U.S. military’s use of drone strikes to assassinate terror suspects, one author has given an unprecedented look at the mindset of a drone pilot.
One of the criticisms frequently aired by opponents of drones is that their pilots might become more trigger-happy and even bloodthirsty when they are able to drop bombs from the comfort of an American base.
But an experienced pilot angrily denied that accusation [...]
The heat rose on Capitol Hill Thursday as Fed chief Ben Bernanke got grilled by policymakers, minutes after delivering bland prepared remarks. The Chairman rejected the notion that artificially low rates, set by the Fed, gave the U.S. a false sense security, allowing Congress to procrastinate. Bernanke also joked that “a trillion there, a trillion here” from the Fed wouldn’t solve the budget deficit, but that it was Congress’ job to figure [...]

It seems that some people will do just about anything to get ahead, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise when a mostly falsified study is released to put down what is primarily known as a fundamentally healthy and intelligent choice. Unfortunately, people still will try to spread discord amongst their fellow man in an apparent attempt to get ahead; sacrificing the good of the people [...]

LONDON — Iran said on Tuesday it had executed a man accused of being an Israeli intelligence agent responsible for the assassination of one of its nuclear scientists, Iranian state media reported.
Press TV, a satellite broadcaster, identified the man as Majid Jamali Fashi and said he had been convicted of killing the scientist, Masoud Ali Mohammadi, in January 2010. The scientist was a 50-year-old professor at Tehran University whose role in Tehran’s nuclear [...]
Businessman Frank Vandersloot, the CEO of Melaleuca, has been targeted by the Obama campaign after donating money to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. “Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, ‘Keeping GOP Honest,’ took the extraordinary step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney,” Kim Strassel of the Wall Street Journal reported. “Titled ‘Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney’s donors,’ the post accused the eight of being ‘wealthy [...]

Gas may be getting expensive, but talk is still cheap. So politicians are responding to the latest spike in petroleum prices as they always do: with a barrage of partisan accusation that has much more to do with exploiting the issue than addressing it.
… Please, everyone, just ignore this blather. Here’s what is actually going on: World crude oil prices determine the vast majority of the per-gallon price [...]

Speaking to the parliamentary Committee for Institutions and Transparency, Nikoloudis said: “I must say without any hesitation, that through inspections that are neither fully exhaustive nor random, and are about which people, which social classes, took their [...]
