    Those who see violence as an inevitable result of this tumultuous election cycle are being proven right.

    Last night saw hundreds of protests with Mexican flags clashing with police and attacking Donald Trump supporters in Southern California.

    Chances are that we haven’t seen anything yet…

  • Donald Trump Offers Foreign Policy Vision: Contradictory, but Still Best of a Bad Lot

    [ad_1]

    Yesterday Donald Trump offered his foreign policy vision. It was the sort of mishmash one might expect, given what he’s said on the stump. He seemed to be starting the traditional march toward the center for November, but he is no Neoconservative and broke with pro-war Republican orthodoxy in important ways.

    Trump’s views suggest the good, the bad and the ugly. Thankfully not as ugly as the positions taken by most of the Republican Party presidential contenders and congressional leaders as well as Democrat Hillary Clinton. Nor as bad as policies implemented by President Barack Obama over the last seven years. But not as good as the provocative thinking of Rand and especially Ron Paul. READ MORE...

  • Feinstein-Burr encryption bill is too clever by half

    [ad_1]

    A couple of weeks ago, in response to the FBI versus Apply fight over an encrypted iPhone, US Senators Diane Feinstein and Richard Burr released a draft of their legislation titled, “Compliance with Court Orders Act of 2016.” The reaction to the proposed legislation has been all over the map, with some lambasting the legislation as “ludicrous, dangerous, technically illiterate.” I actually think the Burr-Feinstein bill is as clever as it is underhanded. Nevertheless, this legislation is dangerous.

  • Trump Bait — Again

    [ad_1]

    Donald Trump could not have paid for a better advertisement for his campaign. From the Los Angeles Times:

    Hundreds of demonstrators filled the street outside the Orange County amphitheater where Donald Trump held a rally Thursday night, stomping on cars, hurling rocks at motorists and forcefully declaring their opposition to the Republican presidential candidate.

    Traffic came to a halt as a boisterous crowd walked in the roadway, some waving American and Mexican flags. At one point, a demonstrator stomped on a police cruiser, its windows smashed to pieces. READ MORE...

  • Oklahoma House Passes Bill Abolishing Abortion!

    [ad_1]

    This past week Oklahoma’s representatives approved a new bill that would revoke the license of any doctor who performs an abortion in their state. Senate bill 1552 had previously passed the Senate and has now finally been approved by the House, meaning all that is left is for Governor Mary Fallin (R-OK) to sign it into law.

    A short summary of the law says:

    The bill stipulates that the performance of an abortion by a physician will constitute

    unprofessional conduct and prohibits the physician from obtaining or renewing a license to practice medicine. The State Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision and the State Board of Osteopathic Examiners must revoke the license of physicians performing an abortion. It modifies the definition of abortion to include an exception to preserve the life or health of the mother. Lastly, it stipulates that if the bill is challenged in court, the Attorney General’s office must determine the amount of state or local funds that will be expended to defend the challenge.
