The founders did not establish a right to bear arms,” GOA’s Erich Pratt was quoted as saying to Newsmax. “They assumed it already existed [and] said that it ‘shall not be infringed.’ [But] gun-control advocates frequently want to skip over those words.”
Gun Owners of America joined a chorus of pro-gun organizations in slamming idiotic comments made recently by former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. Continue reading

Protesting Walmart’s tax privileges as it pays its workers notoriously low wages, the store’s employees and others have delivered a $7.8 billion “tax bill” to the Arizona home of the retail giant’s chairman, Rob Walton.
A report released this week showed Walmart is the beneficiary of $7.8 billion a year in tax breaks and subsidies from the US tax system. Employees of the retail giant and others used the opportunity to remind Walmart heir Walton how many of the company’s workers are forced to depend on social programs to get by, while Walmart reaps billions in profits.

“Searching for an apartment in New York City can be challenging,” the prestigious New York University acknowledges on its website’s “Off Campus Living” page. On the contrary, the son of the school’s president apparently didn’t have any problem.
According to the New York Post, that cautionary understatement on the official NYU site hardly applied to Jed Sexton — a Harvard-educated aspiring actor who in 2002 miraculously happened upon a newly renovated duplex embedded right between NYU’s facilities in the heart of Manhattan’s Greenwich Village. Continue reading
The United States Navy announced that it will postpone the commissioning of its new nuclear-powered submarine, the North Dakota, due to an investigation into the quality of the components developed by the weapons contractor.
Additionally, the Navy stated that further design work would be necessary before the submarine could be commissioned. The Virginia-class North Dakota was scheduled to enter active service in May, but no new date has been set. Continue reading
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A former city official who became a symbol of municipal greed was sentenced Wednesday to 12 years in prison — less than half the time it will take the nearly bankrupt Los Angeles suburb of Bell to dig itself out of the estimated $150 million in debt he left behind.
A judge also ordered former Bell city manager Robert Rizzo to make $8.8 million in restitution, but prosecutors say that only covers the money he illegally took for himself. Continue reading
The campaign to effectively end the Electoral College’s role in presidential elections has received an additional boost from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Late yesterday early evening, I received a message and link to on on-line article about the events at the Bundy’s Ranch. I was asked if the article was accurate. The article is at National Report and is titled “Multiple Militia Members Arrested at Bundy Ranch, Charged with Domestic Terrorism.” The article, though no time stamp, appears to have been posted yesterday (April 15) at about 3:00 PM PDT. It has no byline. Continue reading
This speech is like taking a walk through time, we can’t look into the future or can we? The issues and warnings in this speech should help people understand how impotant the advancement of the New World Order and Agenda 21 is to the powers that be and how long they have been working their plan.
Ronald Reagan A Time For Choosing 1964 Warns Of NWO. Continue reading
The United States Federal Reserve is usually the government office finding itself most often in the crosshairs of former Texas congressman Ron Paul, but now the longtime lawmaker is setting his sights on another agency: the Internal Revenue Service.
Paul’s relentless efforts to abolish the Fed have without a doubt been a hallmark of the 78-year-old libertarian’s career in Congress, but recent attempts from the IRS to compel a nonprofit organization run by the former presidential hopeful for details about its contributors has pushed him to pursue yet another fight with the federal government.

Scientists are stumped as they try to determine exactly why the state of Idaho has been hit with hundreds of low- and medium-level earthquakes since late March.
The most powerful quake struck central Idaho on Saturday, April 12, when a 4.9 magnitude tremor shook walls and knocked objects off the tables. That quake was the strongest to hit the state since 2005, and was followed by another 4.4 magnitude quake on Monday – felt nearly 100 miles away by residents in Montana. Continue reading

Top Los Angeles police officials Tuesday publicly apologized to their civilian bosses for not promptly alerting them that officers had tampered with recording equipment in patrol cars to avoid being monitored.
LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and several top aides promised to monitor the problem more closely and vowed to be better about notifying the five-member police commission about such issues in the future. Continue reading
The Heartbleed computer security bug is many things: a catastrophic tech failure, an open invitation to criminal hackers and yet another reason to upgrade our passwords on dozens of websites. But more than anything else, Heartbleed reveals our neglect of Internet security.
The United States spends more than $50 billion a year on spying and intelligence, while the folks who build important defense software — in this case a program called OpenSSL that ensures that your connection to a website is encrypted — are four core programmers, only one of whom calls it a full-time job. Continue reading
Just last month Deadline reported that Sony is prepping $100 million in cuts and layoffs caused mainly by the humiliating failure of two very expensive left-wing films. Despite big stars like Will Smith, Channing Tatum, and Jamie Foxx, “After Earth” and “White House Down” flopped. Sony then hit the trifecta when the big-budget left-wing “Elysium” disappointed.
What has Sony learned from this painful lesson? Continue reading
