Appeals Court rules California’s anti-concealed carry law is unconstitutional

America's Watchtower

 Earlier today the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, by a 2-1 vote, ruled that San Diego County’s law making a concealed carry permit harder to obtain was unconstitutional.

The court ruled that the right to keep and bear arms is, in and of itself, a sufficient cause for bearing arms for self-defense. Moreover, it is a sufficient cause both inside and outside of one’s domicile. 

According to SFGate, Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain’s majority opinion emphasized “the right to bear arms includes the right to carry an operable arm outside the home for the lawful purpose of self-defense.”

He said the Second Amendment must be read as including “the right to carry weapons outside the home” because “the risk of armed confrontation” is in no way limited to one’s home. He supported his points by citing the examples of “a woman toting a small handgun in her purse as she…

You Won’t Believe What Bill Ayers Said During Our Debate

H/t Dinesh D’Souza

Dinesh D'Souza Newsletter
February 13, 2014Dear Friends,
In the American Spectator this week, Paul Kengor wrote that, “the coarsening that America is undergoing in this current assault on our most basic First Amendment freedoms is undermining the Shining City on a Hill that Ronald Reagan so cherished.”
And he’s right. Monday is Presidents’ Day. This week, remember the original makers of America and try to live out their legacy of honesty, integrity and hard work.
Here are some of the highlight reels from my recent debate with Bill Ayers.
When asked about the Second Amendment, Ayers said “we should disarm” and put serious limits on citizens who own guns. He also said the “Constitution is there to be changed.”
If you ask me, we should give the same respect to the Second Amendment as we give to the First Amendment.
Ayers believes that “American exceptionalism leaves us with a sense that we are the best and everybody should be like us.”
I believe America is the great defender of wealth creation. America created the sense of great possibility. We should fight to widen the pie, not just to redistribute the pie.
You can check out the most heated segments right here.

D'Souza: 'I will not be stopped by Barack Obama'
Just recently, I did an extensive interview with Jerome Corsi from WND. I shared how the debate with Ayers came about, what to anticipate in my upcoming new film America, and the political nature of the Obama administration’s retribution against conservative parties in the country.
D'Souza: 'I will not be stopped by Barack Obama'
My co-producer, Gerald Molen wrote an op-ed at The Wrap. Here’s a preview: “Artists like me were gravely concerned when Dinesh D’Souza was arrested by the very government whose leader he had the temerity to forcefully speak out against.” This is an article you’ll want to share with your friends.
Until next week,

CNN’s Anderson Cooper Endorses Right to Life…For Animals

CNN Endorses Right to Life…For Animals

CNN’s Anderson Cooper did little to hide his outrage on his Tuesday program over a zoo in Copenhagen, Denmark killing a giraffe. Cooper confronted the zoo’s scientific director and asked, “Doesn’t the life of the animal itself have some value, rather than just it being part of your breeding program?” The host later expressed his dismay to Jack Hanna: “What he seems to be saying is that the animal itself doesn’t really have any right to live.” Cooper later used language familiar to pro-life activists in defense of the giraffe: “At a certain point, the animals themselves should have some right to actually having a life.” The anchor’s pro-animal rights segments came just twenty days after CNN senior legal analyst Jeff Toobin ripped pro-lifers on his now-cancelled 10 pm Eastern program.

The $2.2 Billion Bird-Scorching Solar Project At California’s Ivanpah Plant, Mirrors Produce Heat and Electricity—And Kill Wildlife

A giant solar-power project officially opening this week in the California desert is the first of its kind, and may be among the last, in part because of growing evidence that the technology it uses is killing birds.

U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz is scheduled to speak Thursday at an opening ceremony for the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating Station, which received a $1.6 billion federal loan guarantee.

The $2.2 billion solar farm, which spans over five square miles of federal land southwest of Las Vegas, includes three towers as tall as 40-story buildings. Nearly 350,000 mirrors, each the size of a garage door, reflect sunlight onto boilers atop the towers, creating steam that drives power generators.

The owners of the project—

NRG Energy Inc., NRG +2.89%

Google Inc. GOOG +1.08%

and BrightSource Energy Inc., the company that developed the “tower power” solar technology—call the plant a major feat of engineering that can light up about 140,000 homes a year.

One reason: the BrightSource system appears to be scorching birds that fly through the intense heat surrounding the towers, which can reach 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

The company, which is based in Oakland, Calif., reported finding dozens of dead birds at the Ivanpah plant over the past several months, while workers were testing the plant before it started operating in December. Some of the dead birds appeared to have singed or burned feathers, according to federal biologists and documents filed with the state Energy Commission.

Regulators said they anticipated that some birds would be killed once the Ivanpah plant started operating, but that they didn’t expect so many to die during the plant’s construction and testing. The dead birds included a peregrine falcon, a grebe, two hawks, four nighthawks and a variety of warblers and sparrows. State and federal regulators are overseeing a two-year study of the facility’s effects on birds.
