New Jersey’s Christie: Liberty comes from God not government New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie spent much of a town hall-style meeting Tuesday in his state talking up what he believes makes a winning candidate and espousing the principle that rights and liberties come from God, not government. The potential Republican presidential contender, who says he plans to make a decision about a run by the end of spring to early summer, traveled to Morris County for his 132nd Town Hall to sell his state budget plan. But in response to a question about electing more Republicans in New Jersey, Christie… View Article

Congress targets federal ‘chokehold’ on gun sellers Justice scheme likened to ‘old Soviet Union or Venezuela’ Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are taking to task the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and its involvement with Operation Choke Point, the federal program that lets banks deny business to outlets that deal in guns and ammunition. The FDIC is the main agency in charge of regulating the nation’s 4,500 or so banks and financial institutions. Critics of the program say it’s an underhanded way of dinging the Second Amendment without having to go through Congress because it hits at the lifeline of certain businesses… View Article

FEMA to deny funds to warming deniers

FEMA to deny funds to warming deniers The Federal Emergency Management Agency is making it tougher for governors to deny man-made climate change. Starting next year, the agency will approve disaster-preparedness funds only for states whose governors approve hazard-mitigation plans that address climate change. This may put several Republican governors who maintain that the Earth isn’t warming due to human activities, or prefer to take no action, in a political bind. Their position may block their states’ access to hundreds of millions of dollars in FEMA funds. In the last five years, the agency has awarded an average $1 billion… View Article
