Wyoming lawmakers propose bill
to nullify new federal gun laws

Washington Examiner, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/10/2013 11:13:51 AM

Wyoming lawmakers have proposed a new bill that, if passed, would nullify any federal restrictions on guns, threatening to jail federal agents attempting to confiscate guns, ammunition magazines or ammunition. The bill – HB0104 – states that “any federal law which attempts to ban a semi-automatic firearm or to limit the size of a magazine of a firearm or other limitation on firearms in this state shall be unenforceable in Wyoming.” The bill is sponsored by eight Wyoming state representatives ad two state senators. If passed, the bill would declare any federal gun regulation created on or after

Comments:
Excellent! Aside from the unconstitutionality of what the morons in Washington propose, this should be completely left up to the states.

I do agree there are constitutional issues with this law, but a passive-aggressive approach would work, too.

Basically, laws that state that no police, national guard, etc, can assist the FBI or any other federal agency in any way. The feds depend on the muscle of the locals.

Someone burns down a federal building? Guess the federal fire department needs to put it out. Etc.

This is a Bulls-eye against that BS in DC.

This could be fun in some ways.
Can you still spell secession... ?

Time now for the Divided States of America.

Hoorah boys, Hoorah! Just who the hel* does this ´community organizer´ think he is? If the Congress of the United States of America does not agree with him he is going to ´mandate it´ on his own??? What happens to the Constitution? If he can do what he wants regardless of what the AMERICAN system says then he is no longer a ´president´, he becomes a DICTATOR and that we don´t need...he took an oath to UPHOLD and DEFEND the Constitition not by-pass it. The procedures for IMPEACHMENT need to be dusted off and reviewed for fast action should he step out of line. In the meantime I believe Texas should seriously consider the Wyoming bill for our own state. Enough is enough!

#1, I´ve had a similar thought, but actually from the opposite perspective. In Texas, Feds are not statutorily defined as "peace officers" able to carry handguns without restriction. They are designated "special officers" and given the statutory right to carry. I´ve been thinking that we should withdraw that right, make the Feds jump thru the same hoops Joe Citizen has to in order to walk about armed. Make them depend on the local cops, and see how far they get enforcing some lame-brained Fed decrees: "I´m sorry Mr ATF agent, my men are too busy checking the donut shop for health-code violations to help you."

Bingo. State nullification is to federal law and rule-making as executive orders are to congressional approval. Time to re-visit this tactic before taking to more drastic measures.

White House hopes Michelle Obama

Washington Examiner, by Brian Hughes    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/28/2014 8:54:13 PM     Post Reply
Michelle Obama is everywhere these days -- and the White House plans to keep her in the spotlight through November´s midterms. The first lady is pushing a ban on junk-food ads and trumpeting new nutrition labels -- in addition to doing comedy skits with Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell -- as part of a ramped-up schedule for arguably the most popular Democratic woman in Washington. With President Obama seen as a potential albatross in competitive congressional races, some Democrats are clamoring for the first lady to take a more active role to fend off the GOP effort to take back the

Charles Krauthammer told viewers Friday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that President Obama´s statement on the latest Ukraine developments showed "weakness," and implied that "we´re not really going to do anything" about the political upheaval in Ukraine. On Friday, armed men, allegedly Russian military forces, entered the Crimea region and took control of two airports. President Obama then delivered a message from the White House briefing room, saying he was "deeply concerned" by the reports and that "there will be costs" for any military intervention in Ukraine, though he declined to specify what those costs might be. Krauthammer, however,

Exclusive: GOP Fires Back

I´ve been lamenting Republicans´ haphazard and sclerotic response to Harry Reid´s Obamacare smears, wondering with frustration why the party hadn´t produced any instant YouTube ads or mobilized to draw attention to the comments. Last night I received word from the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) -- the group devoted to relegating Reid to minority status -- that they were working on it. They´ve since shared their production exclusively with Townhall: If you´re wondering why the ad doesn´t actually feature Reid´s remarks, Senate rules severely restrict campaign committees´ ability to use floor footage in ads.

President Obama in a speech on Friday hammered Republicans who oppose gay rights, saying that some of them wanted to “legalize segregation based on sexual orientation.” “In some states, they´re so far in the past they´re even pushing laws to legalize segregation based on sexual orientation,” said Obama in an address to the Democratic National Convention winter meeting in Washington. “As Democrats, we´ve let the other side define the word ´freedom´ for too long,” he added. Obama´s comments were likely a reference to a recent Arizona bill that would have allowed businesses to refuse service to gay customers. Supporters said

First Lady Michelle Obama will guest-star on NBC´s season finale of Parks and Recreation, airing at 8 p.m. April 24.

As Obamacare was envisioned, consumers who purchased private insurance coverage through the new Obamacare marketplaces -- and only through the Obamacare marketplaces -- could potentially qualify for federal tax credits to help pay for it. Now, in states that have experienced technical problems with their Obamacare websites, some consumers can get tax credits for purchasing insurance on the individual market, even outside of the Obamacare marketplace. The administration quietly issued the health law fix Thursday to help those states. Several Democratic-led states, including Oregon, Maryland, Massachusetts and Hawaii, are still trying to solve website problems that have eclipsed those experienced

MEXICO CITY - Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said he is "indignant" at the United States´ deportation of Mexican migrants and described U.S. lawmakers as demonstrating a "lack of conscience" in failing to pass immigration reform. In a television interview aired late on Wednesday Pena Nieto said he and U.S. President Barack Obama discussed the issue during their meeting at a North American leaders´ summit held last week in Mexico. His emboldened comments to U.S. Spanish language channel Univision followed days after his administration announced it had captured Mexico´s most wanted man, drug lord Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman.

First lady Michelle Obama unveiled a proposed new nutrition label Thursday, claiming the labels would make it easier for families to tell whether food is healthy. Because math is hard, or something. If your “nanny-state” radar is going off, it should. The new label really doesn’t appear to be much different from the old one. The “servings per container” font is larger and bolder, the “calories” section is much larger and bolder and the “percent daily value” column was moved to the left side (have to spend that tax money on something).

Obama and Boehner met in the Oval Office on Tuesday for an hourlong meeting.

The phenomenon of global warming has been used to explain many things, but now Mother Jones is quoting a study saying it might cause more rapes of women. Matthew Ranson, an economist, avers that there is a historical connection between warmer temperatures and increased crime. He said, "Looking at the past, we see a strong relationship between temperature and crime. We think that is likely to continue in the future." Ranson utilized the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s projections of the effects of global warming in the U.S. to estimate that between 2010 and 2099, warmer temperatures will "cause" an

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds. Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation.

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute

Kerry Kennedy has been found not guilty of drugged driving — and gave herself a hearty round of applause after jurors were dismissed from court by a Westchester County judge. The jury handed down the verdict after just 30 minutes of deliberation Friday morning. The six-member panel had deliberated about 45 minutes Thursday night after being handed the case. Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom.

The question isn’t why Arthur Chu brought his peculiar, buzzer-smacking brand of game play to “Jeopardy.” The question is why, in 50 long years of the show’s history, more people haven’t done the same. Chu, if you haven’t heard of him, is the “Jeopardy” contestant nonchalantly bulldozing America’s collective nostalgic vision for how game shows should work, who cruised to his eighth straight victory on Thursday night. The insurance compliance technician from Ohio who is also a “stand-up comedian, Shakespearean actor, improviser, tour guide, genius and, most importantly, voiceover artist,” according to his Web site — has used his renegade style

A chilling video of Maryland police silencing an innocent student who was recording the arrests of two other people has civil libertarians outraged. The arrests were made at night on the streets of Towson, Maryland. A University of Maryland-Baltimore County student who witnessed the arrests decided to record them using his cell phone. The student, 21-year-old Sergio Gutierrez, was soon approached by officers who objected — wrongly — to his actions. Gutierrez repeatedly told the officers that he knew he had the right to film them, but the cops were prepared to use any excuse to shut him down. First they told
