Donny Ray Williams Jr Serial Rapist Democratic Scandal Lautin

The sexually abusing Senate staffer you never heard of (because Democrat)

Posted by  ▪  December 3, 2014

Good thing he didn’t make a rude comment about the President’s kids, or he’d be on front page everywhere.

Yesterday, the Washington Post published a story about Donny Ray Williams, Jr. Williams is a convicted serial sexual abuser and former Democratic Senate aide. Ah what magic that little ‘D’ affiliation possesses. There was no story on Good Morning America, no major network news coverage of a serial rapist who will not be serving jail…

Search warrant ruling could blow hole in cellphone privacy

Posted by  ▪  December 3, 2014

Ruling in sealed federal case provides slight glimpse at government legal tactics.

Privacy advocates cheered when Apple announced last month that an updated encryption scheme would disallow Apple from bypassing user passcodes at the request of law enforcement officials armed with search warrants.

How the EPA is a giant tax dollar sinkhole

Posted by  ▪  December 2, 2014

$700,000 to attempt to reduce methane emitted from pig flatulence in Thailand seems like taxpayer money well spent, right?

Arizona Senator Jeff Flake released a report on the EPA’s misuse of taxpayer money called the Science of Splurging. “For an agency keen to regulate every puddle from a rainstorm, the EPA has proven itself remarkably inept when it comes to managing its own affairs,” said Flake. “After years of handing out blank checks…

Florida Sup Ct to Decide Key Self-Defense Immunity Case

Posted by  ▪  December 2, 2014

The NRA weighs in with an amicus brief arguing the burden of proof on mmunity should fall on the State; the State, naturally, objects

The Orlando Sentinel reported recently on an interesting self-defense law matter currently being taken up by the Florida Supreme Court. As seems inevitable, they have of course incorrectly categorized the case as centering on the state’s “Stand-Your-Ground” law. In fact, the case centers on Florida’s self-defense immunity statute, and not on Stand Your Ground….

House Democrats just cheapened the “Hands Up” protest

Posted by  ▪  December 2, 2014

There goes the narrative

For all the spin the left has provided on the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, you’d think they’d have a little more respect for their own race-based premise. Democrats in Congress probably thought they were performing an act of solidarity when they engaged in a “hands up, don’t shoot” protest on the floor…

Elizabeth Lauten scalped

Posted by  ▪  December 2, 2014

Disproportionate force.

The madding crowd has claimed another meaningless scalp, and it couldn’t be happier about it.

Posted by  ▪  December 2, 2014

Pick your poison.

Al Sharpton is now an advisor to and go-to guy on race relations for Obama, including on Ferguson. And you didn’t think it could get any worse than Obama having Jeremiah Wright as a spiritual advisor for much of his adult life, until the political heat got too hot. Which is worse? You can…

SCOTUS considers Facebook rants in free speech case

Posted by  ▪  December 2, 2014

How “free” is free speech? We’re about to see a new standard come down.

Both parties in the high-profile Elonis vs. United States had their day before the Supreme Court yesterday, and lawyers and analysts alike aren’t sure what to make of the Court’s reaction to oral arguments.

Liberal writers wrestle with Ferguson facts

Posted by  ▪  December 1, 2014

Stumbling across the truth, but picking themselves up and carrying on

John McWhorter’s Time essay on Ferguson demonstrates his graceful way with words, and his struggle to fight the truth about Ferguson. The only bit of truth that survived McWhorter’s preferred narrative is this: I’m not sure that what happened to Michael Brown — and the indictment that did not happen to Officer Darren…
