Did North Dakota Just Authorize Pepper-Spraying Police Drones?

I certainly don’t want the police to have armed [drones]—whether they be deployed with lethal or non-lethal weapons—and requiring warrants is a good first step. But based on a reading of the statute in question, it does not appear to do what Glawe and others claims it does. > Read more

ALG's Daily Grind - Obama's War on the Poor continues


August 31, 2015

Permission to republish original op-eds granted.

Obama's War on the Poor continues
The resulting higher electricity costs represent the most regressive form of regulatory taxation imaginable as the less fortunate have almost no way, short of being cold, of avoiding the costs.

Is China propping up the U.S. stock market?
Marketwatch's Chao Deng: "Rumors of Beijing's hand in the market reversed the selling by Thursday, which helped support global shares prices, commodities, and currencies of emerging markets that had been battered."

Wash. Examiner: Gun control is a dead issue
"There are nearly 300 million privately owned firearms in the United States today. This fact, all on its own — without considering any constitutional or political obstacles — means that the ship sailed on gun control long ago, never to return."

Jindal For President - Jindal Fires Back at Hillary Clinton on Immigration 

Jindal for President


BATON ROUGE — After appearing on CBS’ Face the Nation yesterday and calling for assimilation in immigration, Governor Jindal was attacked by Hillary Clinton surrogate Joaquin Castro. This morning, Governor Jindal is firing back.

Gov. Jindal said, “Yesterday on CBS, I said those who come here should want to be Americans — they should assimilate, roll up their sleeves and get to work. I said that immigration without assimilation is invasion.  When did it become politically incorrect to say immigrants should want to be Americans? You either want to become an American and be all in, or you don’t. Let's insist on being the melting pot. Let's forget this politically correct liberal notion that we're not a melting pot anymore.

“What part of my statement about immigration without assimilation does Hillary Clinton disagree with? Does she think that people who come here shouldn’t have to learn English and adopt our values? Or that they shouldn’t get to work?  Who is Hillary Clinton defending? Who is she trying to protect?

“The idea of America is slipping away because we refuse to stand up for our values and beliefs and because of this notion that we need to be politically correct and that we should allow people to come here without assimilating.” 


Campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Iowa yesterday, Joaquin Castro attacked Governor Jindal’s immigration position for not being politically correct enough for liberals:
