Hey, Chicago Tribune: Why are you helping Rod Blagojevich blackmail the Feds?
A proven reliable source reports that Rod Blagojevich is attempting to blackmail his way out of prison.
And, there are indications that the feds are in the process of capitulating to Blago’s demands, aided by the collaborative assistance of the ChicagoTribune, in what amounts to a cover-up of a crime.
History of Abortion in the United States
1873 Supported by the American Medical Association (AMA), the Comstock Act bans the dissemination by mail of information on abortion or artificial contraceptives.
it remains on the books today and forbids use of the mails to distribute "obscene" material and anything "which is advertised or described in a manner calculated to lead another to use or apply it for producing abortion...." The act's constitutionality was upheld in three cases on the grounds that the First Amendment does not protect "obscene" speech (Smith v. United States, 1977; United States v. Reidel, 1971; and Roth v. United States, 1957). However, the courts have not ruled on its provisions regarding abortion-related information, largely because they are not enforced.
Update 00:13 5/59
Surprisingly, the act's restrictions regarding abortion-related information remain on the books, even though the restrictions are inconsistent with the Supreme Court's 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade. In 1994 Congress increased the maximum fine for a first-time violation of the act from $5,000 to $250,000. In 1996 Congress amended the Comstock Act to extend the ban on abortion-related information to the Internet. Although bills have been introduced in both the House and Senate to repeal the abortion-related provisions of the Comstock Act, they have not become the law. Alexander Sanger, president of Planned Parenthood of New York City, and other plaintiffs filed a lawsuit challenging the 1996 amendments to the Comstock Act, but the suit was dismissed because the government had not yet attempted to enforce the act. As long as the government chooses to ignore the Comstock Act, it is unlikely to go away.

The Reason Obama is President
The Communists took over America after JFK was shot. American society then took a sharp nose dive into Hell. With the presidential elections rigged there was no stopping their agenda. Call it Marxism, Socialism, or Communism. It's all the same.

That is to say, unless Plouffe's denial is true, the very legitimacy of the president's re-election is in doubt.
Tax Audits Are No Laughing Matter
Just a joke about the power of the presidency. Made by Jay Leno it might have been funny. But as told by Mr. Obama, the actual president of the United States, it's hard to see the humor.

Moreover, standards of offense vary with the victim. Christians are particularly singled out for censorship, as are Republican organizations and other conservative groups, especially pro-Israel ones, whose publications are often vandalized, campus events attacked, and speakers shouted down.
The FIRE: “The government has mandated speech codes on all campuses”
In a letter sent yesterday to the University of Montana that explicitly states that it is intended as “a blueprint for colleges and universities throughout the country,” the Departments of Justice and Education have mandated a breathtakingly broad definition of sexual harassment that makes virtually every student in the United States a harasser while ignoring the First Amendment. The mandate applies to every college receiving federal funding—virtually every American institution of higher education nationwide, public or private.
The letter states that “sexual harassment should be more broadly defined as ‘any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature’” including “verbal conduct” (that is, speech). It then explicitly states that allegedly harassing expression need not even be offensive to an “objectively reasonable person of the same gender in the same situation”—if the listener takes offense to sexually related speech for any reason, no matter how irrationally or unreasonably, the speaker may be punished.

The attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans and ten Libyans was the work of "experienced masterminds" that had been planned well in advance, "I think this was al-Qaeda," Mohamed al-Magarief, the Libyan president, said to Al Jazeera in an interview with Hoda Abdel-Hamid.

What you don’t know about shale gas may surprise you
States are the primary regulators of onshore oil and gas activities, including shale. A recent executive order from the White House made news for its intent to coordinate the dozen federal agencies and departments currently involved with various aspects of shale gas development. But as both the order and a recent Reuters article point out, states are the primary regulators. This is because much of the unconventional natural gas development takes place on private lands, and states have the most knowledge and experience with their own geology, resources, rules and regulations.
Executive Order -- Supporting Safe and Responsible Development of Unconventional Domestic Natural Gas Resources
While natural gas production is carried out by private firms, and States are the primary regulators of onshore oil and gas activities, the Federal Government has an important role to play by regulating oil and gas activities on public and Indian trust lands, encouraging greater use of natural gas in transportation, supporting research and development aimed at improving the safety of natural gas development and transportation activities, and setting sensible, cost-effective public health and environmental standards to implement Federal law and augment State safeguards.

And it gets worse: claimants who didn’t have such a letter were allowed to “submit an affidavit from a non-family member stating that he or she has personal knowledge that a discrimination complaint was filed and describing the way in which it was filed.” For 99 percent of the claims, the settlement eliminated the government’s right to challenge even the most obviously untrue affidavits. In the one percent of claims where they could be challenged, a significant number failed because, under penalty of perjury, the non-family member quickly admitted that there was no first-hand knowledge.
