The Obama administration and its “Task Force on 21st Century Policing” are under fire after unveiling an unconstitutional plot to impose federal “standards” on state and local police forces, which critics say is in effect an underhanded plan to further nationalize and federalize law enforcement. Widely lambasted as “Common Core” for police, the Obama plan outlines dozens of controversial “recommendations” to be foisted on state and local law-enforcement agencies using federal tax dollars as bribes — the same unconstitutional process used to impose the hugely unpopular national “Common Core” standards on states and schools nationwide. Opponents say it is part of a dangerous long-term plan that must be opposed.
Barely plausible denials aren't enough to cover the fact that Hillary deliberately broke the law while Secretary of State.
After the Department of Justice accused the Ferguson Police Department of racial bias, the FPD now finds itself in a pickle, facing three unsavory, even impossible, alternatives to the status quo.
Imprisoned evangelist Kent Hovind, a well-known advocate of biblical creationism who has been behind bars for 100 months on tax and “structuring” charges, is on trial once again. The federal government is now pushing to have him locked up for life on charges of “mail fraud” and “contempt of court.” In a telephone interview with The New American magazine from prison in the Florida panhandle over the weekend, Dr. Hovind argued, as his large and vocal group of supporters does, that he is being persecuted for his faith and his preaching — that the government and his detractors are essentially “shooting the messenger” because they do not like the message he preaches from the Bible. Anti-Hovind activists and the government say there is no persecution going on.
The Chicago police department runs a “black site” detention facility where detainees are “disappeared” and kept out of contact with family and lawyers at a warehouse on the city’s west side called Homan Square, according to a report published Tuesday by the London newspaper The Guardian.
A Texas grand jury last week might have set a precedent when it decided not to indict a marijuana grower who shot and killed a deputy sheriff during an early-morning raid on the man’s home.
A radical atheist killed three Muslims in North Carolina. Now authorities are wondering if the act was a hate crime. But should such a designation even exist?
Churches are considered "soft targets" by many criminally minded individuals. Sheepdog Seminars are helping churches harden security and train "sheepdogs" to protect their flocks from these predatory wolves.
Pastor Kent Hovind, a powerful advocate of biblical creationism who has already served almost 100 months in federal prison as part of what his supporters say amounts to a ruthless government campaign of religious persecution, is now potentially facing up to 100 years behind bars. As federal prosecutors prepare to make their case for keeping Dr. Hovind incarcerated for the rest of his natural life, however, a growing grassroots campaign across America is demanding that he be set free — and that those responsible for allegedly railroading him be held accountable, including the judge, who has developed a reputation among those following the case as having a strong anti-Christian bias.
With the IRS now embroiled in escalating scandal surrounding politically motivated attacks against conservatives and Tea Party groups, analysts say Hovind’s case is now especially important and ought to be probed by Congress.
Who’s more violent? Bill Whittle’s new video commentary eviscerates the deceptive statistics and phony arguments that anti-gun propagandists use to falsely portray the U.S. as the most violent society on earth.
Police officers seize firearms and ammo from a man who was guilty of nothing but getting into a loud argument — and now they refuse to return his property.
