Two California cities, San Jose and San Diego, the tenth- and eighth-largest cities in the country respectively, just voted overwhelmingly in favor of ballot measures to rein in union pensions.

The Obama campaign has been vocal in its dissent of job outsourcing, using Romney’s past business endeavors as an indication of his performance on domestic job-creation. However, Obama’s $787-billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funneled millions of federal dollars to companies that shipped American jobs overseas. 

Citing his pro-life beliefs, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican, became the latest political leader to slam the current “war on drugs” as a “failure.” Instead of putting illegal-drug users in prison, first-time non-violent offenders should be sentenced to mandatory treatment and rehabilitation programs, the GOP governor argued during a speech at the Brookings Institution this week.   

The remarks came in the wake of a new law in New Jersey seeking to reform some elements of the state’s dealings with addicts and narcotics users. Passed overwhelmingly by the legislature last month but criticized by Gov. Christie for its “piecemeal” approach, the measure creates a pilot program ordering certain people caught with drugs into a year-long treatment regime instead of imposing criminal penalties.  

"The war on drugs, while well-intentioned, has been a failure," Gov. Christie argued in his speech.

The Hartford Courant and other media have reported that Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) has expelled Alexandra Pennell, and now the unhappy college girl faces eight felonies and 17 misdemeanors. Although Pennell pleaded not guilty, police caught her on tape and she confessed to her roommate, the newspaper reported. Staging hate crimes is now a common occurrence. In May, for instance, police in Colorado arrested a pair of lesbians for staging a phony hate crime at their home.

On Friday, July 6, President Barack Obama continued his quest to codify his own dictatorship with the issuing of a new executive order granting himself yet another expansive, unconstitutional power. The power afforded to the President in this latest executive order is so frighteningly expansive that it exceeds the scope of the authority acceded to the president in all his previous edicts.

In an order entitled the “Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions,” the president quietly produced an edict that places the nation’s entire communications spectrum and infrastructure — private and public — under the control of the White House.
