It’s been well over 100 days since U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi accidentally drove across the border into Mexico with legally registered weapons and was detained by Mexican authorities.
Tahmooressi has made several pleas to Barack Obama to take action to get him out of prison, or to at least expedite due process and move up his trial, but has received nothing from the White House.
Missouri’s Constitutional Amendment 5 passed yesterday with 62% of the vote and 3712 of 3898 precincts reported. It’s a clear statement of support for the right to keep and bear arms, clarifying that it’s a fundamental right; that it protects ammunition and accessories as well as firearms, and that the state is obligated to protect that right. The amendment could lead to the Show Me State becoming a constitutional carry (no permit or license required to keep or bear arms) state like Vermont and Arizona . . .

Forget impeachment… it may be time for handcuffs! That is according to Tea party and conservative leader Michele Bachmann, who just suggested on the House floor that Congress should put handcuffs on the “lawless president’s hands” — a remark that drew outrage from liberal Democrats.
Family Security Matters
by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD
From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia…could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we will live forever or die by suicide. – Abraham Lincoln
Barack Obama has become the instrument of that suicide.
