Federal Court Refuses State AG:
Concealed Carry Stands in Illinois

Breitbart´s Big Government, by AWR Hawkins

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/22/2013 1:25:43 PM

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan´s request "to reconsider a ruling that found the state´s concealed carry weapons ban unconstitutional [in Dec. 2012]." Madigan has argued that the December ruling overturning the ban was in conflict with other appeals court rulings and that it went beyond what the Supreme Court required. The December decision had come via a three judge panel, so Madigan asked for the entire court to hear her appeal in hopes that the other justices would see things differently.

Comments:
Sweet. At least we have a few judges left that aren´t corrupt.

These people are relentless. They will never give up their attempt to disarm us unless we push back so hard that it´s no longer worth their while to keep coming after us time and time again. Apathy will prove to be the Conservatives undoing if allowed.

The IL AG has already stated that since this is a state law, the Federal Court has no jurisdiction and she will enforce its decision.

Excellent news, but watch these gun-haters very closely now. They will almost certainly make a MAY-issue law with a very, very limited subset of people that will be given permits, nearly zero will actually get them. It is common to almost never issue in some anti-gun states, and it may be like Hawaii - which technically has a concealed carry permit, yet NO permits are every issued, as a matter of policy. Probably, Illinois will also NOT recognize any other state´s permits.

It will be interesting to see if the judge forces an objective set of criteria, a ´shall issue´ system, which has been so successful in other states a lowering crime rates. If they force Illinois to have objective requirements, the next lawsuit needs to be in Hawaii which has de facto no concealed carry permit system.

Hagel again misstates
administration policy on Iran nukes
Fox News, by Justin Fishel    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/21/2014 10:22:47 PM     Post Reply
Defense Department officials acknowledged to Fox News that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, while speaking to a Jewish congregation at a Maryland synagogue on Tuesday, appeared to have misstated the administration´s policy on Iran -- by saying the country should not be allowed the "capacity" to develop a nuclear weapon. "So that´s the position of this administration; it was the position of the Bush administration -- that´s unequivocal. That´s stated -- it´s clear," Hagel said at the Beth El synagogue in Bethesda, Md. But Hagel was mistaken, and it´s not the first time he has misspoken about the United States´ nuclear

The electricity price index soared to a new high in January 2014 with the largest month-to-month increase in almost four years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Meanwhile, data from the Energy Information Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Energy, indicates that electricity production in the United States has declined since 2007, when it hit its all-time peak. The U.S. is producing less electricity than it did seven years ago for a population that has added more than 14 million people. “The electricity index rose 1.8 percent, its largest increase since March 2010,” said BLS in its

“Proposed FCC study of news organizations sparks conservative outcry,” The Washington Post declared on Friday. The story revealed details of the backlash against a Federal Communications Commission plan to investigate the news-gathering and information dissemination practices of a variety of print and broadcast media outlets. The Post quickly amended that headline, as someone decided the study should have sparked a general “outcry,” even though it apparently did not –- at least, not in The Post’s newsroom. Still, some bright fellow at The Post noted that this latest encroachment by the federal government should be met with at least a perfunctory protest

MARK LEVIN: The FCC, call it whatever you want, Barack Obama´s henchman, Barack Obama´s comrades, there, that´s right, all over the federal government have hijacked the institutions of government and are now turning them on the people. Whether it´s the EPA, or the Department of Justice, the Interior Department, NOAA, this, that or the other, they´re using the government, they are using a law against us.

As much as MSNBC´s left-wing prime time hosts portray themselves to be on the side of the workers, none of the anchors have responded to 10,000 petitions delivered to the network on Thursday from NBC writers and producers demanding more workplace rights. Talking to TVNewser, Writers Guild of America East communications director Jason Gordon pointed out the hypocrisy of the liberal channel: "The company can´t have it both ways – presenting the strong, progressive voices of the MSNBC hosts while at the same time depriving the [NBCUniversal] Peacock [Productions] employees of their own voices on the job."

WASHINGTON – The Justice Department announced Friday it is revising its rules for obtaining records from the news media in leak investigations, promising that in most instances the government will notify news organizations beforehand of its intention to do so. The revised procedures are designed to give news organizations an opportunity to challenge any subpoenas or search warrants in federal court. News organizations are to be informed of an impending document demand unless the attorney general determines that notice would pose "a clear and substantial threat to the integrity of the investigation, risk grave harm to national security or present

A leading skeptic climatologist has declared himself so sick of being called a "denier" by climate alarmists that he is now going to call them out as "Nazis" in return. Dr Roy Spencer, Principal Scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, writes on his blog: "Yeah, somebody pushed my button. "When politicians and scientists started calling people like me “deniers”, they crossed the line. They are still doing it. "They indirectly equate (1) the skeptics’ view that global warming is not necessarily all manmade nor a serious problem, with (2) the denial that the Nazi’s extermination of millions of Jews ever happened.

In a watershed moment and a huge victory over environmentalists, General Electric has agreed to stop projects that are designed solely for the purpose of carbon dioxide reductions to please those who lobby for climate change concessions. The National Center for Public Policy Research, a non-partisan, free-market, independent conservative think-tank which has been fighting GE for years because of GE’s liberal bias under CEO Jeffrey Immelt, scored a huge victory after receiving the commitment from General Electric. Late in 2013, the National Center submitted a shareholder proposal as part of GE´s 2014 proxy statement and annual meeting materials. The proposal: ...request[ed] that the

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor on Friday sent GOP lawmakers a memo outlining the chamber´s winter agenda, which mostly excludes major legislation, instead aiming to blunt the impact of the health care law and regulations implemented by the “imperial presidency” of the Obama administration. Cantor announced that lawmakers will vote the week of March 10 on legislation aimed at curbing what the GOP views as an abuse of power by President Obama, who has said repeatedly in recent weeks that he plans to advance his agenda through executive action that does not require Congressional approval.“Declaring that he has a ‘pen

Citing “extraordinary interference” from politicians, the United Auto Workers (UAW) on Friday asked a federal labor board to toss out last week’s union election vote in Tennessee. The UAW alleges that Sen.

In the wake of an appeals court ruling allowing an illegal immigrant gang member to remain in the country because he renounced his membership, a couple of GOP lawmakers are calling on the Justice Department to appeal. On Jan. 23 in the matter of Martinez v.

First conservative icon Thomas Sowell turned on Ted Cruz, now it appears that Ann Coulter is souring on the Texas Republican as well. Sowell published two columns this week slamming Cruz for being self-serving. Coulter praised the first of Sowell’s columns in a tweet Wednesday. Later, in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Coulter doubled down on her praise of Sowell’s anti-Cruz column: ”I never push anyone else’s column but mine. Today everyone has got to read Thomas Sowell’s article.” During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically the Senate Conservatives

Singer Ted Nugent apologized on Friday for calling President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” last month. “I do apologize, not necessarily to the president, but on behalf of much better men than myself,” Nugent said in a radio interview on “The Ben Ferguson Show." The rocker said he was sorry for using “street fighter terminology of subhuman mongrel,’” and admitted "I did cross the line.” Nugent said he should have used a term such as “violator of his oath, the Constitution” instead. The apology came just a day after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) urged Nugent to apologize for the remark. “Ted

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, may be the brightest light to adorn the Republican Party in many years. He knows how to make the case for conservative ideas, pointing, for example, to the contrasting fates of Detroit and Houston to illustrate the superiority of conservative policies. So it´s particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at President Barack Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans. His most recent foray into sabotaging his colleagues concerned the debt limit increase. Because Speaker John Boehner sent over a "clean" debt limit bill,

I repeat: I’m not a global warming believer. I’m not a global warming denier. I’ve long believed that it cannot be good for humanity to be spewing tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. I also believe that those scientists who pretend to know exactly what this will cause in 20, 30 or 50 years are white-coated propagandists. “The debate is settled,” asserted propagandist in chief Barack Obama in his latest State of the Union address. “Climate change is a fact.” Really?

How much more are black people in this country supposed to take? On Saturday, a Florida jury failed to convict Michael Dunn for the callous murder of Jordan Davis. Though he was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and also on a gun charge, a mistrial was declared for the first-degree murder charge. He will face substantial jail time – perhaps up to 75 years on the four charges for which he was found guilty. Prosecutor Angela Corey has also publicly declared her intent to seek retrial on the murder conviction. However, she is the same prosecutor who oversaw the Zimmerman

Listening to pundits talk about the potential 2016 Republican field, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Rick Santorum. The former senator’s strong second-place showing in 2012 shocked—even scared—the GOP’s kingmakers, who saw in him an abortion-hating firebrand with no chance of beating Barack Obama. So it’s no surprise that today, the party’s mainstreamers are acting like he’s old news, again dismissing a Santorum presidential candidacy. Not that he cares. He’s too busy plotting another possible run at the White House. In recent months, Santorum has gathered his inner circle of longtime advisers to sketch out a presidential campaign. He’s scheduling trips to

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov.

In a letter released Thursday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler told Republican leaders of the House Energy and Commerce Committee his commission “has no intention of regulating political or other speech of journalists or broadcasters.” Wheeler defended new FCC research as the first step toward pinpointing “market barriers” that might affect the “diversity of media voices.” Republicans expressed concern the FCC´s study was an attempt "to control the political speech of journalists” by reviving the Fairness Doctrine, now-extinct rules that required radio and
