Ending Policing for Profit: How to Reform Federal Civil Forfeiture Laws

Under federal civil forfeiture laws, law enforcement agencies can permanently seize and keep property merely suspected of involvement in criminal activity, without ever charging—let alone convicting—anyone of a crime. Serious defects in the current law place enormous burdens on innocent owners faced with the loss of their property, and facilitate the circumvention of strong state laws, in violation of federalism principles. This issue has received significant attention from the media and Congress.

Join us for an important and timely discussion on the need to reform federal civil forfeiture laws.

10 year federal budget projections

Mercatus

Republican Budget Resolutions: 
Slower Spending but Future Never Certain
The Republican-controlled House and Senate have passed respective budget resolutions for the 2016 fiscal year.

This week’s main chart shows that both proposals would reduce the growth in spending compared to the Congressional Budget Office’s baseline. Both proposals claim to lead to a balanced budget by the end of the 10-year horizon.

While it is true that the budgets propose structural changes to major programs including Medicaid, the reality is that neither proposal seeks to end any of the federal government’s seemingly countless roles and responsibilities. Without such a change, it will remain difficult for lawmakers to control the growth
 in spending and debt.


What's really behind the Republican budget?

Are Economics Majors Anti-Social?



A leftover professor calls for censoring economics.  Hilarious. She wants an index of banned books, especially those that show the destruction and foolishness of her policies. This woman is a further argument for the defunding of academia. She should never receive a tax dollar, and probably not a private dollar either. She should be mopping floors and not promoting fascism and disinformation.

Peter Goettler is the new head of Cato

Peter Goettler is the new head of Cato

Here is part of an email from an email from Cato:
The Cato Institute welcomes Peter Goettler, a former managing director at Barclays Capital, as its new President and CEO, effective April 1. Current CEO John Allison is retiring after more than two exemplary years on the job.
Goettler retired in 2008 as a managing director and head of Investment Banking and Debt Capital Markets, Americas, at Barclays Capital, the investment banking division of Barclays Bank, PLC. He also served as chief executive officer for the firm’s businesses in Latin America and head of Global Loans and Global Leveraged Finance. He has been a member of the Cato Institute’s board since last year and a supporter of the Institute for 15 years.

After resigning from Barclays, Goettler was elected chairman of the board for the New York City – Southern New York Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for a two year term in 2013. Peter has been a member of the board since 2008 and chaired numerous committees including the Governance and Development Committees.

“Peter brings boundless drive and enthusiasm and I look forward to our partnership in moving the chapter forward to empower people living with MS and improving their lives,” says Robin Einbinder, chapter president.

Peter’s involvement with the chapter dates back to mid-1990s. Over the years he became more involved through his participation in the fundraising event, Bike MS NYC. He is a member of the Bike MS NYC team, Barclay’s Chain Gang, which has helped raise more than $1million for the event, the largest one-day fundraising bike ride in New York City. The funds that Peter helped raise support the comprehensive programs and services the chapter provides to more than 10,000 people in the area affected by MS. Funds also support the National MS Society’s critical research initiatives, an area that Peter has a keen interest in as his wife is living with MS.

“I am honored to continue to dedicate my energy and resources to the chapter in my new role. I am committed to the mission of creating a world free of multiple sclerosis and look forward to engaging with our constituents on an even deeper level,” says Peter.
He resides in New Canaan, CT.

FreedomWorks wants your money!


I'm about to meet w/ activists who are leading the fight to help principled lawmakers like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Ben Sasse, and Mike Lee beat the DC Establishment. We're going to talk about what we need to do in 2015 to pass legislation that reverses the Obama Agenda permanently.

 I’ve spent the last few months meeting activists from across the country. I don’t want to let them down. They want to stop Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America now...no more waiting. They want to end Common Core, repeal ObamaCare, and finally stop Obama’s lawless admin once and for all.

While I'm meeting with activists today, I want to tell everyone that FreedomWorks will have the resources to help them stop Obama in 2015. Will you make sure I can do that by donating just $5 right now? I don’t want to let these activists down.
Here's the link: https://donate.freedomworks.org/Stop-Obama

With your support, freedom WILL work in 2015!

Ready for Hillary


My Fellow American,

I'm an unaccomplished lawyer from Arkansas, married to a former popular U.S. president who has cheated on me throughout our marriage, with my full knowledge. I later became a U.S. senator because of my relationship to that president and, again, accomplished nothing, only to run for president in 2008 based only on my experience as a tolerant wife and token senator. I was beaten for the highest elected office in the nation by an entirely unqualified man who holds has the same leftist beliefs as I, but hates the United States even more. Subsequently, I served as his secretary of state for much of his first term, where, yet again, I accomplished less than nothing -- unless, of course, you count other the frequent flyer miles at taxpayer expense and pressing an imaginary "reset button" that accomplished even less than the rest of my career in so-called public service. As an aside, the Secret Service agents assigned to protect me found me so abrasive and dismissive that they considered it "punishment" to be assigned to me.
For these reasons, I believe I should be the next president of the United States.

Thank you,
Hillary Rodham Clinton

Alexis de Tocqueville on Islam

Alexis de Tocqueville (1805 – 1859) was a French political thinker and historian best known for his Democracy in America (appearing in two volumes: 1835 and 1840) and The Old Regime and the Revolution (1856). In both of these works, he analyzed the rising living standards and social conditions of individuals and their relationship to the market and state in Western societies. Democracy in America was published after his travels in the United States, and is today considered an early work of sociology and political science.

Here is Alexis de Tocqueville on Islam:

"I would never regard Islam with anything but horror and fear because it is fundamentally committed to conquering the world for Islam... it is, I think, best described in a Marxian way as the uniting and justifying ideology of Arab imperialism. Between the New Testament and the Qur'an there is (as it is customary to say when making such comparisons) no comparison. Whereas markets can be found for books on reading the Bible as literature, to read the Qur'an is a penance rather than a pleasure. There is no order or development in its subject matter.... The Prophet, though gifted in the arts of persuasion and clearly a considerable military leader, was both doubtfully literate and certainly ill-informed about the contents of the Old Testament and about several matters of which God, if not even the least informed of the Prophet’s contemporaries, must have been cognizant... one thing I’ll say in this comparison is that, for goodness sake, Jesus is an enormously attractive charismatic figure, which the Prophet of Islam most emphatically is not."

"I studied the Quran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction that by and large there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad. As far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion more to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself."

NSA snooping


 
 
FreedomWorks
 
   
 There are new reports that the NSA snoops may be putting spying software in the hard drives of computers used by people like you!
The NSA is out of control, and it’s time for Republicans to stop it.
If these reports are true, the agency is spying on innocent Americans – a blatant violation of your 4th Amendment rights.
I’m sick of unconstitutional NSA spying. Obama’s snoops can’t ignore the Constitution. They need to be stopped. And they need to be kicked out of your inbox.
It’s time for Republicans to stand up to Obama. The president must obey the Constitution. Obama can’t just ignore the supreme law of our land.
Republicans need to defend the 4th Amendment and stop Obama’s reckless spying.
Tell Congress you want to end Obama’s unconstitutional spying right now.
Our rights must be secure if we are to keep our republic.
Make freedom work,

Let Freedom Ring!

FreedomWorks

Repeal. ObamaCare. Now.

That’s it. No more waiting. No more surrender.

Republicans have only been in charge for a few weeks. But unfortunately some media outlets are reporting the GOP may give up on totally repealing Obama’s health care takeover.

That’s nonsense – the American people voted for a new direction in November. It’s time for Republicans to deliver with bold, new policies.

The first should be repealing ObamaCare immediately and replacing it with free market, patient-centered reforms.

We cannot allow Republicans to ignore the will of the people and back down to President Obama!

Sign the petition if you want Republicans to repeal ObamaCare now.
Obama’s health care takeover is dragging down our economy and destroying jobs. It’s time for it to go, and a conservative alternative to take its place.

In Liberty,
