Supreme Courts Affirm The Police State

Our descent into a police state is complete, as evidenced by rulings by the Indiana and U.S. Supreme Courts which, last week, effectively and finally abolished the 4th Amendment. No longer are American citizens “secure in the persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures,” thanks to the two rulings affirming police authority to bash down your door and enter your home without a warrant. Resisting such an incursion is now a crime.

Romney Blasts Obama For Shunning Boston Newspaper

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has accused President Barack Obama of violating “the spirit of the 1st Amendment.” In an interview with WBZ Radio, Romney criticized the President for banning one of Boston’s major newspapers, the Boston Herald, from covering Obama’s recent visit to the Hub.

Huntsman Attacks Obama’s Handling Of Libya

Former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman has not yet solidified his candidacy for the 2012 GOP Presidential nomination, but he has begun criticizing his former boss. During a recent interview on ABC’s Good Morning America, he said that President Barack Obama made a mistake when he intervened in Libya.

Texas Law Will Require Sonograms Prior To Abortions

Pregnant women in Texas who want to get an abortion must first get a sonogram, according to a new law signed by Republican Governor Rick Perry. 

Congressional Leaders Finally Agree On Something: Extending The Patriot Act

On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) made a deal, calling for a vote to grant a four-year extension to several expiring parts of The Patriot Act. “The provisions at issue allow the government to use roving wiretaps on multiple electronic devices and across multiple carriers and get court-approved access to business records relevant to terrorist investigations,” according to an article on FoxNews.com.

Recent Grads Not So Hot For Obama Anymore

President Barack Obama is losing some of his most ardent supporters, according to several new polls. The Daily Caller reported that, in a recent informal survey, of 83 percent of recent college graduates who voted for Obama in 2008, only 27 percent say they are committed to voting for him again. “Eighty percent said they would consider voting for a Republican,” an article on the site read.

Dems In No Real Hurry To Cut A Deal On Budget

On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) rejected a proposal for $2 trillion in budget cuts, saying cuts alone are an unacceptable way to balance the budget. “You can’t do $2 trillion just in cuts,” Reid said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. “There has to be a mix of spending cuts, including defense. There has to be a more fair apportionment of tax policy in this country.”

Jailed For Questioning Barack Obama

Some of the more emotional reunions I have ever witnessed occurred at airports. Few can match the joy of wives (and, sometimes, husbands) and children as they welcome a service member returning safely from overseas. This past Saturday, such a reunion took place at Baltimore Washington International Airport. But in this case, the highly decorated veteran wasn’t returning from Iraq or Afghanistan. Instead, he had just been released from military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.

GOP: Mr. President, Would You Kindly Follow The Law?

Six Republican senators wrote a letter to President Barack Obama on Wednesday, asking whether the President plans to act in compliance with the War Powers Act, with regard to the Unites States’ military campaign in Libya. The resolution requires the President to receive approval from Congress for military action lasting longer than 60 days.

White House Bars Newspaper From Press Pool, Alleges Bias

The White House Press Office snubbed the Boston Herald on Wednesday, denying the paper full access to President Barack Obama’s fundraiser in Boston. The Press Office told the paper via email that press pool reporters are chosen by their ability to “fairly” cover the news. An article on BostonHerald.com discusses the rejection, which came after the paper ran a Mitt Romney opinion piece on the front page — more than a month before the President’s visit.
