Ted Cruz walked out of the Mandela memorial service when Raul Castro began to speak.
Good for him. But didn't he know that Mandela was also a part of the Communist party in South Africa?
Better to have boycotted the whole affair than hobnob with Commies.
Growing impatient with the federal government’s reluctance to do anything to stem the tide of illegal immigration, human trafficking and drug smuggling, Texas officials took matters into their own hands, bringing all of it to a screeching halt along the Rio Grande section of the U.S./Mexican border.
"The Florida appeals court ruling that the University of North Florida was violating state law when it prohibited a woman from storing a gun in her vehicle while she attended class will spill over to cities and counties statewide, an attorney said Wednesday.
And it’s one of many nationwide where anti-gun activists are trying to do at the local level what they can’t do in the statehouse – restrict Second Amendment rights."

Durham, N.C. — Durham's police chief says that Jesus Huerta, the 17-year-old who died in police custody last month, shot himself in the head after he had been searched, handcuffed and placed in the back of a patrol car.

Washington (AFP) - An avalanche of intelligence leaks from former CIA contractor Edward Snowden sent shockwaves around the world in 2013, lifting the lid on a vast global spying network and raising fears of a surveillance state.

Gold repatriation has been a hot topic in the last 2 years. After Germany, Venezuela, the Netherlands, Finland, Poland, Ecuador, Switzerland, it could be Australia’s turn.

Mr. James Sorenson attended the 2012 Gay Pride Parade in Colorado Springs, Colorado while openly carrying his weapon in a holster. The police bristle at the notion of a "peasant" carrying a gun as a challenge to their authority and first harass/detain, and ultimately arrest him.
Fortunately Mr. Sorensen's partner filmed the entire incident, which include the cops threatening to taze him for non-compliance followed by a verbal threat to "Kick the sh--" out of him if does not respect their authority.
Canadian Airline Westjet gave passengers something to believe in this holiday season.
The airline came up with a brilliant holiday promotion that placed a digital Santa Claus at an airport and asked passengers what they wanted for Christmas. While the passengers were in the air, Westjet workers sprinted to nearby stores at the destination and bought gifts.
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - Police in the City of Colorado Springs were forced to pay $23,500 to a man they arrested by mistake for carrying his weapon in public. James Sorensen sued and won after he was arrested at a festival in July, one day after the Aurora shooting occurred. The entire incident was caught on camera and when the officer who disarmed him told him to get a lawyer, that’s exactly what he did.
What are the odds?
