Guns Blazing

Guns Blazing

This administration’s strange means of implementing legislation, i.e. enacting it through administrative edicts which bypass the opposition of Congress, is not limited to immigration matters. The recent rules enacted by Barack Obama regarding gun sales are merely an extension of the distinctly unilateral policymaking which has been a hallmark of his presidency. Although, as...

Freedom Of Information

For those of you who believed the carnage wrought by this administration’s criminally negligent-if not intentionally malicious-Fast and Furious program had ceased-or even abated-I have some troubling news to report. Thanks to the indefatigable attorneys at Judicial Watch we continue to discover weapons implicated in violent crimes which can be traced back to the...

Staten Island Rallies Against the NY SAFE Act

Staten Island Rallies Against the NY SAFE Act

Update: You can also read coverage of the event by the Staten Island Advance. The events of the past week have prevented us from discussing an issue dear to the hearts of many of our followers. Namely, the continuing, deliberate assault by public officials upon the intrinsic liberties of Americans. Specifically, the right to...

Repeal The Safe Act

Repeal The Safe Act

As we explained in our last activism update, the forces intent upon diminishing our rights have been emboldened by a recent series of horrific events. Most prominently, the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Rather than be cowed by rapacious politicians, we should resist this encroachment upon our fundamental liberties. To that end, I’m urging...

Injustice

With the unfortunate news that Eric Holder is going to remain in his position as head of the Department of Justice for the second Obama term-at least for the foreseeable future-it’s only fitting that we take a cursory glance at the defining moment of his tenure as Attorney General. I refer, of course, to...

The Politics Of Liberty

The Politics Of Liberty

The disembodied, suspended rock face you see above is probably the only redeeming feature of Work in Progress, the dreadful night club where  Libertyfest was held. Thankfully, the day overshadowed the venue. Mike Salvi, the Master of Ceremonies, did a capable job overseeing the proceedings, despite the unusual nature of the event and sporadic disruptions, gently...

Act Against The ATT

In a little over a week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will convene with other opponents of individual liberties under the umbrella of the Global Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). Although billed as a multinational effort to curb the proliferation of weapons used in conflicts like the insurrection in Syria or the turmoil in the...

Department of Obstruction

Department of Obstruction

Here’s the link to the full hearing of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which resulted in Attorney General Eric Holder being held in contempt. Kudos to Chairman Issa and the twenty-two other Republicans-including Syracuse’s own Ann Marie Buerkle-who had the gumption to hold this administration to account for its obstruction of...

Freedom’s Enemies

That is our current attorney general Eric Holder, give or take a decade and a half, exhorting a receptive audience to delegitimize the right to keep and bear arms, which is a bedrock of our Constitution’s foundation, the Bill of Rights. While it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the man at the heart...

Obstruction of Congress

The political fallout from Fast and Furious continues to grow, even as Eric Holder relentlessly adheres to a policy of stonewalling, obstruction, evasion, and lies, both in the media and during congressional testimony. The video below demonstrates not only Attorney General Holder’s notoriously spotty memory, but also his remarkable ability to deflect attention from...
