US plans to further militarize its southern border irk Mexicans

Mexicans continue to express rising outrage over US plans to further militarize its southern border with Mexico under a border security bill that is certain to win passage in the US Senate. “We are ‘friends and neighbors,’ as is repeated ad nauseam, but the US is about to militarize the border with Mexico as if we were at war,” said Mexican Congressman Fernando Belaunzaran with the left-wing Democratic Revolution Party in a tweeted this week, cited Wednesday in a Los Angeles Times report. “Neighbors don’t do this to each other,” wrote prominent news anchor Jorge Ramos of major Mexico-based broadcast… View Article

Illinois governor vetoes parts of concealed carry gun bill

                      Illinois governor Pat Quinn on Tuesday vetoed parts of a gun bill that would have allowed people to carry more than one gun, carry guns into some places that serve alcohol, and carry a partly exposed gun. Flanked by parents of gun violence victims, Democrat Quinn said at a press conference that he objected to at least nine provisions of the new Illinois concealed carry measure that was passed by the legislature. “This is a flawed bill with serious safety problems that must be addressed,” Quinn said. After the… View Article

Gun Rights Supporters Defiant

As Colorado’s new ban on the sale and possession of “high capacity” magazines went into effect on July 1, gun control opponents gathered on the front steps of the state capitol and “swapped and sold high capacity magazines in plain view of police officers, daring them to make an arrest.” According CBS Denver, dozens of protesters gathered as rally organizer Ryan Tulega said: “The government knows [this law] is unenforceable. It’s feel good legislation.” Although no arrests were made, state representative Dan Pabon (D-Denver) warned the protesters that they may not have it so easy in the future. He said… View Article

Top 5 Things Michelle Obama Has Complained About

5. The White House is like a “really nice prison.” That would mean that the First Lady failed to make parole in November 2012. Ms. Obama made that complaint at the African First Ladies Summit in Tanzania, among fellow inmates, some from countries where the opposition occupies really nasty prisons. 4. Our student loans were “higher than our mortgage.” That complaint, at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, sounds awful, except that both of the Obamas went to Harvard Law School, one of the most elite and expensive schools in the country. Many young people today would love to have a mortgage. 3. I… View Article

Kelly and Giffords lobby in Alaska for gun control

                            Alaska might seem a hard place to sell a gun control message in a state where subsistence hunting is for many a way of life, and where people routinely carry guns into the wilderness for protection from bears. But that didn’t deter former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, from bringing their campaign for expanded background checks to the heart of gun-rights country on Tuesday. Background checks on people who want to buy firearms at gun shows would not prevent all of the… View Article

DNI Clapper Admits ‘Clearly Erroneous’ Testimony on NSA Surveillance

                      On Tuesday, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper apologized for what he termed a “clearly erroneous” statement he made under oath to Congress regarding the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs. On March 12, Clapper responded in the negative to a question by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) about whether the NSA collected “any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans.” He added, “There are cases where they could inadvertently perhaps collect, but not wittingly.” That statement was false. In an attempt to get past… View Article

Man facing 13 years in prison for criticizing banks; judge bars any mention of First Amendment in his defense

              NaturalNews) “Insanity” is a term that best describes the large and growing  American Nanny State, but there are varying degrees of insanity within it. For  example, Nanny State insanity is compounded in states – say, California for  instance – where unrestrained progressive liberalism has so influenced the  lawmaking process that it completely confounds reasoned outside  observers. Take the case of San Diego resident Jeff Olson: He is  currently being prosecuted for writing anti-big bank messages on sidewalks in  chalk. If convicted, according to the San Diego Reader, he faces an astounding 13 years… View Article

Women urged to stop sex, even with husbands

            An outspoken feminist is recruiting women to stop having sex with all Texas  men – even their husbands – until the men start voting for the “right” to end an  unborn baby’s life with a late-term abortion. “Don’t give in if your man, boyfriend, husband, toyboy is not voting for your  best interests, your reproductive health – do not sleep with that man!” warns Huffington  Post contributor Vivian Norris. “I don’t care how cute or charming he is! I  don’t care if he is your husband of many years. Resist! Go swimming!  Meditate!” Norris… View Article

San Diego jury erases ‘stupid’ chalk charges

SAN DIEGO     (AP) — The mayor called the case “stupid” and a jury swiftly said it shouldn’t stick, taking the eraser to vandalism charges for a man who wrote anti-bank slogans on San Diego sidewalks.

Russian Forces to Provide “Security” At US Events

                        As part of a deal signed last week in Washington DC between the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and FEMA, Russian officials will provide “security at mass events” in the United States, a scenario that won’t sit well with Americans wary of foreign assets operating on US soil. According to a press release by the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense and Emergencies, US and Russian officials met on June 25 at the 17th Joint U.S.-Russia Cooperation Committee on Emergency Situations. In addition to agreeing with FEMA… View Article
