Reducing the Friction Between Cops and Spies Is the Key to Victory

The end of the Cold War meant a significant change in the nature of the foreign threats to US security. The principal worry of most Americans is no longer a devastating military offensive from abroad, but rather more insidious assaults which hit closer to home, threatening lives and property and creating a climate of fear.

Gun Rights and International Moral Consensus

By Jordan J. Ballor

In District of Columbia et al. v. Heller (No. 07-290) a slim 5-4 majority found the D.C. ban to violate the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which reads, “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state , the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

Abuse Of Law Is Emerging As A Pattern and Practice

In an earlier piece, I congratulated the Gura team for their win in D.C. v. Heller, the Washington, D.C. gun ban case. Like most good lawyering, not only does the team win, but all of America wins. Well done. [Now here’s some people I’d like to meet and shake hands with, and I hope to see this team perhaps at the 2008 Gun Rights Policy Conference in Phoenix. Our friends to the North are most welcome. Please come. For details, see ]]

The pipeline originates in the Department of Arauca in northeast region of Colombia. It carries oil nearly 500 miles to the Caribbean port of Covenas. And it’s the most vulnerable and desirable target in Colombia for terrorists such as members of the ruthless and deadly narco-terrorists FARC.

Hezbollah’s Newest Nazi - the Child Murdering Samir Kuntar

imageHow absolutely Hileresque the image above of recently released terrorist and child murderer Samir Kuntar is. How demonically appropriate as well. Look into Kuntar’s eyes, there’s almost a distinct, demonic-red glow to them. And it also occurs to me that the only thing missing from Kuntar’s camouflage uniform is a red, black and white swastika armband.

However, the turbaned Shi’te Hezbollah Islamo-Nazi’s in the image suffice in lieu of the missing swastika. You see, there really is no difference between the Nazi’s of WWII and the Shi’ite Muslims of modern day Iran and Lebanon. They want to achieve the same “final solution” against the Jew’s and Israel as their forebears did in Europe a generation ago.
