Joshua Prince Mops the Floor With CeaseFirePA (video)

Attorney Joshua Prince makes a complete fool of CeaseFirePA's gun rights hating Shira Goodman. They're debating Pennsylvania's Act 192 which allows people to proactively sue municipalities which enact gun control laws in violation of the state's preemption statute. Enjoy!

federal judge in south Texas issued an injunction Monday temporarily blocking a program President Obama announced in November that would defer deportation for about 5 million immigrants living in the United States illegally.

Charlie Sheen for President 2016!

They've gotten so awfully embarrassing at creating worthy news they've chosen to replace Donald Trump with the next-in-line media-case, and as so chosen a man who publicly lost his mind, wherever to.

"Hackers" tied to NSA exposed thanks to Snowden and Kaspersky

"CANCUN, Mexico — In 2009, one or more prestigious researchers received a CD by mail that contained pictures and other materials from a recent scientific conference they attended in Houston. The scientists didn't know it then, but the disc also delivered a malicious payload developed by a highly advanced hacking operation that had been active since at least 2001. The CD, it seems, was tampered with on its way through the mail.

Nigel Farage of UKIP Crosses the Pond to Speak at CPAC

“I am very excited to be coming to speak to so many freedom-loving individuals at CPAC this year – and I consider it an honour to do so,” Farage said in an emailed statement to Breitbart News. “In Britain, we are fighting against the creation of a client-state, against rampant corporatism, against a career political class that services vested interests and has forgotten about the world outside of their cosy, Westminster bubble. I understand that in the United States, the fight isn’t all that different.

Likely presidential candidate Jeb Bush is attempting to distance himself from his older brother’s foreign policy blunders. It appears his strategy for doing this will be surprisingly straightforward. Apparently, he will refuse to talk about the Iraq or Afghanistan wars, or any other militaristic intervention undertaken while G.W. Bush was president.
