SCOTUS to Rule on Obama Admin's Refusal to Recognize Jerusalem

American citizens born in Jerusalem have the legal right to have “Israel,” listed on their passports as their place of birth, according to a law Congress enacted in 2002.

Armed agents from the Obama administration are on the precipice of a potentially deadly confrontation with cattle ranchers in Nevada, in a grazing-rights dispute between Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management. The bottom line is that the feds are absolutely correct in their property-rights claim, but wrong on their violations of the First Amendment. Right or wrong--this situation risks spiraling out of control into deadly violence, fed in part by grassroots frustration over federal power. Apr 13, 2014 11:15 AM PT

Judge Slams Eric Holder for Reducing Drug Crime Sentencing Without Congress

Federal judges usually only speak through the written opinions and orders of their courts, confined to a case currently before them. And it’s exceedingly rare for a federal appeals judge to take someone on a national politician by name.

CA AG Candidate Wants Death Penalty for Corrupt Politicians, Flouts Eighth Amendment
