Post Date: 2019-02-16 03:47:20 by Deckard
The no-knock search warrant for the drug raid that killed a middle-aged couple in their Houston home on January 28 seems to have been based on a "controlled buy" that never happened by a confidential informant who does not exist. According to a February 8 search warrant affidavit obtained by KPRC, the NBC station in Houston, investigators looking into the raid at 7815 Harding Street, the home of Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas, have been unable to identify the C.I. who supposedly bought heroin from Tuttle the day before. Sgt. Richard Bass submitted the February 8 affidavit in support of a warrant to search a cellphone used by Steven Bryant, a narcotics officer who participated ...

Trump’s Absurd Claim that Americans Are Free from Government Coercion
Post Date: 2019-02-14 09:59:34 by Deckard
This article was originally published by James Bovard at the Mises Institute In his State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Trump received rapturous applause from Republicans for his declaration: America was founded on liberty and independence not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free. But this uplifting sentiment cannot survive even a brief glance at the federal statute book or the heavy-handed enforcement tactics by federal, state, and local bureaucracies across the nation. In reality, the threat of government punishment permeates Americans daily lives more than ever before: The number of federal crimes ...
There’s Nothing Ridiculous About Trains Replacing Planes
Post Date: 2019-02-14 09:26:43 by Willie Green
High-speed rail in California was a disaster. But theres a better way. What a train wreck. Last week, the rollout of the Green New Deal brought sustained attention to the idea of high-speed rail in the United States for the first time since the early years of the Obama administration. Various Democratic presidential contenders endorsed, albeit in the vaguest possible terms, the idea of getting more people to more places via faster and more dependable train service. The office of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went one further, suggestingby mistake, apparentlythat a souped-up rail system could replace domestic air travel. Doh. A GOP meme was born. The authors ...
Study Shows Concealed Carry Permit Holders Break Laws Far Less Than Cops
Post Date: 2019-02-14 07:32:42 by Deckard
Despite massive gun restrictions rolling out across the country, for the past two years, the number of concealed carry permit holders has continued to soar. A study conducted at the end of last year showed that the number of Americans licensed to carry a concealed weapon is now over 17 milliona whopping 273 percent increase since 2007. If we were to believe the rhetoric that more people carrying guns would lead to more crime, there would be a correlation showing an increase in crime among concealed carry holders. However, a study conducted by the Crime Prevention and Research Center, which examined these numbers, found the opposite. Whats more, not only are concealed carry ...
Tasered 11 Times Over Turn Signal
Post Date: 2019-02-14 06:55:34 by Deckard
Heres a particularly awful story and video out of Glendale, AZ with implications that are national. Armed government workers followed a car into a parking lot over an alleged turn signal violation and almost immediately escalate the traffic stop into a violent takedown that ends with the front seat passenger being Tasered 11 times. He dont got no ID, says the AGW. Shut up. Shut up. Youre fine. The passenger who was not driving didnt make the alleged illegal U turn and so objected to the AGWs demand for his ID.

Post Date: 2019-02-12 23:00:10 by hondo68
Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson delivers the key note address at the 34th Annual Space Symposium April 17. Six months ago, service leaders said they were being cut out of the planning process. Now theyre being put in charge of it. Detailed planning for the proposed Space Force is expected to be handed over soon to the U.S. Air Force, a sign that Pentagon leaders many of whom opposed the notion of consolidating military space operations in a new organization have found a version that they can support. In coming weeks, Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan is expected to sign a memo asking Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson to stand up a team that will figure ...
Green monster: California abandons high-speed rail line between LA and San Francisco
Post Date: 2019-02-12 18:48:24 by Tooconservative
I cant believe the new, very progressive governor of California decided to drop the axe on Calis great green boondoggle the same week that 2020 candidates are talking up the Green New Deal. The balance sheet Newsom is looking at must be completely radioactive. I mean, we knew it was radioactive. But it must be Fukushima-level radioactive for him to pull the plug at this highly inopportune moment, knowing how the GOP will use this to prosecute the case against the GND. Dont get excited, though. You know the rule: When socialist ambitions fail, the solution is more socialism. Somehow this will be folded into the case *for*, not against, the Green New Deal. California Gov. ...

Jew-haters burn down New York yeshiva, paint swastikas
Post Date: 2019-02-09 08:07:03 by IbJensen
This is the work of the left. Devout Muslims and their leftist lapdogs are norming systematic Jew-hatred worldwide under the euphemistically labeled BDS movement a nazi-esque movement to alienate, isolate and destroy the Jewish state. Worse still, it is funded by wealthy liberal American Jews, as I have documented here at the Geller Report in numerous exposes. And now it has the Democrat Party leadership on its side, as well as leftist pressure groups such as the ACLU. Its unconscionable how the left is lining up systematically against Israel while ignoring the actual human rights abuses committed by numerous other countries. It reveals the Jew-hatred that is at the bottom of ...

Post Date: 2019-02-08 08:12:56 by IbJensen
WASHINGTON A divided Supreme Court stopped Louisiana from enforcing new regulations on abortion clinics in a test of the conservative courts views on abortion rights. The justices said by a 5-4 vote late Thursday that they will not allow the state to put into effect a law that requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. joined the courts four liberals in putting a hold on the law, pending a full review of the case. President Trumps two Supreme Court appointees, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh, were among the four conservative members of the court who would have allowed the law to ...

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D.) commented Wednesday about a controversial 40- week abortion bill and in so doing said the law allows an abortion to take place after the infant's birth. "If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if thats what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother," Northam said, alluding to the physician and mother discussing whether the born infant should live or die. A Democratic lawmaker in the Virginia House of Delegates proposed a bill Tuesday that ...

Shop all books by Judge Napolitano Last Friday, on a quiet residential street at 6 in the morning, the neighborhood exploded in light, noise and terror. Seventeen SUVs and two armored vehicles arrived in front of one house. Each vehicle had sirens blaring and lights flashing. The house, which abutted a canal, was soon surrounded by 29 government agents, each wearing military garb, each carrying a handgun and most carrying high-powered automatic rifles. In the canal were two amphibious watercrafts, out of which more heavily armed government agents came. Circling above all this was a helicopter equipped with long-range precision weaponry and high-powered spotlights. Four agents approached ...
