Police spray mace, arrest
Mich. right-to-work protesters

Detroit Free Press, by Paul Egan and Kathleen Gray

Original Article

Posted By:hoosier observer, 12/6/2012 3:49:14 PM

Police arrested several protesters and sprayed mace into the crowd in the state Capitol on Thursday as lawmakers discussed right-to-work legislation that would make Michigan the nation´s 24th right-to-work state. The protesters were arrested as they tried to rush the Senate floor, said Michigan State Police Inspector Gene Adamczyk. "When several of the individuals rushed the troopers, they used chemical munitions to disperse the crowd," he said. "It would be a lot worse if someone gets hurt and I failed to act."

"Police spray mace on Obama supporting union hooligans seeking to disrupt legislature´s consideration of worker freedom law"

There is the correct headline. But then, what else would one expect from the Detroit Freek [sic] Press than the original topper.

And don´t forget that Michigan voters turned down a union-backed amendment to the state constitution that would have, in effect, made union membership compulsory.

Right-to-work does improve economic conditions and helps workers because it cuts off the money that union officers illegally direct to dhimmicrats from union dues and "service" fees.

More union violence, but that is played down. Of course if it had been a Tea Party demonstration where they were just standing there, the media would have manufactured violence and racism.

Pontiac, Mich. -- A mummified body was found in a garage of a Pontiac, Michigan, home. Investigators found her body in a vehicle that was parked in the garage and believe it has been there for at least six years. Even more puzzling is voting records show that the woman voted in November 2010 but investigators believe she died in 2008. The clerk for the city is blaming it on a computer error but her family thinks there was foul play and that she did not die from natural causes.

The vote followed weeks of uncertainty for a measure that swept through the General Assembly with ease just three years ago.

A federal judge in South Bend has provided some last minute relief to a host of Catholic entities across northern Indiana. A preliminary injunction blocks enforcement of the so-called “contraceptive mandate” in the federal government’s Affordable Care Act. As a result, the University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne now has what the University of Notre Dame was denied: Court ordered protection for employees from the contraception mandate due to take effect January 1st.

Richmond, Va. – The Chesterfield Marine who claimed he was wrongfully detained over posts he made to Facebook has filed a civil rights lawsuit against Chesterfield Police officers and other government workers, according to his attorneys from The Rutherford Institute. They claim Brandon Raub’s First and Fourth Amendment Rights were violated when FBI agents appeared at Raub’s Chesterfield home last summer. Raub claims the agents questioned him about his Facebok postings on the government’s version of 9/11 and the role of the Federal Reserve.

Clean technology investors shift focus

NEW YORK -- A decade ago, large investors in so-called clean technology had a straightforward goal: finance companies that would help eliminate the world´s dependence on oil, natural gas and coal. But as profits from wind, solar, biofuels and other alternatives consistently fell short of expectations -- and as the fossil fuel business boomed -- things got complicated. Venture capitalists and other investment funds started stretching the definition of clean technology almost beyond recognition in an effort to make money while clinging to their environmental ideals.

South Bend - Local party leaders and others reacted Friday to the verdict in the forgery trial involving former longtime chair of the county and congressional district Democratic Party Butch Morgan and party member Dustin Blythe.

Morgan faces up to 22 years in prison, and Blythe faces up to 75 years. Co-defendants Pam Brunette and Bev Shelton, who pleaded guilty prior to this week,

A federal appeals court for the first time ruled Friday that U.S. border agents do not have carte blanche authority to search the cellphones, tablets and laptops of travelers entering the country — a “watershed” decision in the court’s own terms and one at odds with the policies of the President Barack Obama administration. The ruling by a divided 11-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is the most significant privacy decision in the digital age following the Supreme Court’s ruling last year requiring authorities to get warrants to place GPS tracking devices on suspects’ vehicles.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday.

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
