The largely discredited Southern Poverty Law Center, an ultra-leftist self-styled “civil rights” group based in Alabama, just released its latest so-called “Intelligence Report,” warning of an alleged surge in right-of-center organizations concerned about an out-of-control federal government. Among the most prominent “Patriot” groups attacked in the SPLC report was The John Birch Society, with an entire article about the JBS devoted largely to complaining about the liberty-minded organization’s supposed growing influence in the conservative movement and the Republican Party.
Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) filibustered the nomination of John Brennan for nearly 13 hours, challenging the president's authority to kill Americans on American soil without due process of law.
A Florida college shut down an informal dorm Bible study led by InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, the same group the school booted off campus in late February for running afoul of its non-discrimination policy.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a leftist “civil rights” outfit that has been criticized and ridiculed from across the political spectrum, issued its latest “Intelligence Report” about the supposed threat posed by “Patriot” groups and other right-wing “extremists.” Employing its usual deceptive tactics in a transparent but failed effort to lump Christians and constitutionalists in with racists and terrorists, the SPLC claimed the number of “anti-government extremist” organizations had reached “record” levels — and that the increase was due in large part to the fact that Obama is half black.
Harry C. Alford, president and CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, has accused President Obama of acting like former Soviet dictator Josef Stalin in his attempts to force a socialist agenda on America.
The latest round of negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) began Monday in Singapore. The agreement would create a free-trade zone that essentially trumps the U.S. Constitution and places American law at the mercy of globalist boards.
In a widely celebrated move by activists, New York Supreme Court justices last week ordered Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration to prove by the end of next month that its recent assault on gun rights is actually constitutional — critics and experts say it clearly violates both the U.S. and state constitutions. The extraordinary speed used to adopt the controversial legislation, which appears to have violated a separate provision in the state constitution, is also facing scrutiny from the judicial branch.
The Arkansas legislature overrode a veto by Governor Mike Beebe to enact a pro-life law that bans abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy.
As the drone war expands in Africa, the Department of Homeland Security orders domestically deployed Predator drones equipped with technology that can track gun owners and follow cellphone signals.
While reviewing a challenge to the Voting Rights Act of 1965, several Supreme Court justices questioned the need for continuing an important provision of the act (Section 5), which requires only certain geographic areas — mainly seven Southern states, Alaska, Arizona, and three boroughs of New York City, as well as numerous smaller jurisdictions — to obtain federal preclearance before making changes in voting laws.
