A federal judge has denied an application filed by Texas officials for a restraining order to block the federal government from resettling Syrian refugees in Texas.
It was 57 years ago at the Indianapolis home of Miss Marguerite Dice when businessman Robert Welch began his marathon two-day lecture that launched The John Birch Society. There were 11 friends and business associates present and they listened intently as the philosopher-historian and great lover of America told them during 17 hours why they should join with him in an organization designed to preserve the American dream. Most agreed on the spot to be the Society’s first members and the organization was born on December 9, 1958.
The Supreme Court has once again disappointed constitutionalists in their rejection of a grand opportunity to clarify, once and for all, what the Second Amendment is all about.
In a rare Oval Office speech on December 6, President Obama led off by addressing the tragic shootings in San Bernardino on December 2 that took 14 lives, and as he did in his weekly address the previous day, once again called for more gun control.
On Saturday, November 28, 2015, the NSA telephone surveillance program ended. Except that it didn't. The spying program — made famous when former NSA contractor Ed Snowden leaked a trove of secret documents to reporters — has simply continued under different authority. The "new and improved" surveillance may even be worse than before because the required warrants will be issued by a secret court.
Continuing his pattern running roughshod over Congress, the U.S. Constitution, and America’s national sovereignty, President Obama is now asserting that he can unilaterally negotiate climate deals that are legally binding on the United States. And all without a vote of the U.S. Senate.
Released from a gag order after 11 years, a former Internet service provider revealed the information the FBI sought to obtain about one of his clients with a National Security Letter.
CAIR is determined to silence its critics by any means, including using frivolous lawsuits designed to harass and intimidate.
Democrats have reintroduced yet another gun control bill, but this is not just another attempt to do an end-run around the Constitution, but a frontal attack on it and its Bill of Rights.
Donald Trump has promised that if he is elected, he will "Make America Great Again!" Apparently, that "greatness" includes the type of torture that was rejected by many Americans when it was practiced under the last Republican president. "The Donald" wants to bring back waterboarding.
When Edward Snowden released a trove of documents in 2013 revealing the depth and breadth of NSA surveillance of Americans, the agency admitted that it previously had a program that captured information about citizens' e-mails, but claimed it had discontinued the program in 2011. Now, newly released documents shows that — par for the course — the agency was telling half the truth. The same surveillance has continued all along under a subsequent program.
