Public Hangings? Bring ‘Em Back!

JD Longstreet

Once the pubic is reminded of the heinous crime that brought the convict to the death chamber, I believe watching the perpetrator receive his/her just deserts would bring some closure and some finality to the chain of events initiated by the original crime. It might also result in more respect for the law and restore, at least to some degree, people's faith in the system.


Who Does This Guy Think He is Kidding?

Bradlee Dean

The battle for gun control laws attempts to set emotion and passion against logic and reason. History shows that when these two contest against one another (that is why they are using moms), logic often loses. So, as long as the American people accept the rhetoric of the Bloombergs of the world, you can expect more meaningless and harmful gun legislation until, at length, America is disarmed.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder

Don’t Go There Buddy!

Rick Manning

Attorney General Eric Holder doesn’t like being challenged to produce documents surrounding his Justice Department’s involvement in the Fast and Furious scandal. In fact, he became incensed when Representative Louis Gohmert had the temerity to push him regarding his Contempt of Congress citation, earned due to his stonewalling lawmaker requests for documents about their infamous Fast and Furious gun running scheme.

The Murder of Jesus

David Whitney

When government agents kill someone, the common assumption often made that such a homicide is perfectly justified. They convince us that we cannot and must not question their actions. They are above the accountability required of everyone else. But the truth of the matter is that they accountable to God, and His law is the standard by which they will ultimately be judged, whether they participated in the murder six months ago of Miriam Carey or the murder of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Carry Thy Gun, Love Thy Neighbor

A.J. Castellitto

A gun in the hands of an evildoer troubles me. My hope is that in times of trouble there may be just, responsible, God-fearing men who may rise up to slay those who seek to destroy.


Lewis Ashker Murder Conviction Upheld


South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley announced today that First Circuit Court Judge Bruce Anderson has upheld Lewis Ashker’s first degree murder conviction. Ashker sought to escape his murder conviction on the basis that some hairs found on the victim did not belong to him.


Why Did Only 7 Democrats Vote Against Cop Killer Defender Adegbile?

Robert Romano

7 Senate Democrats had the good sense to dodge a political attack ad nightmare when Debo Adegbile was defeated to be the next Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division. What is remarkable is that only 7 Democrats voted no. Too bad for Harry Reid he can’t count to 50.

Bob Ellis

A bill to repeal the death penalty in South Dakota was killed in the House State Affairs Committee today. Republican Rep.

Feb. 21 South Dakota Billwatch

Bob Ellis

There's a busy day ahead in the South Dakota Legislature today. These are some of the most noteworthy bills being considered today. Perhaps the single most potentially impactful and important one today is HB 1183, an attempt to repeal the death penalty in South Dakota. As I have pointed out numerous times before, there are many reasons to keep the death penalty in place, and absolutely zero good ones to get rid of it.

In the America View of law and government, we recognize that the Law of Nature and of Nature's God is a fixed, unchanging standard. And "jurisdiction" – the authority to speak and to enforce the law – is given, by God, to four separate governments.


Unshakable Hope

David Whitney

If you go to the stores these days you’re in for sticker shock as the price of everything heads to the ceiling, but there is one item that is going down in price. In fact, it’s so cheap that quite often it’s simply free for the taking. It is so abundantly available that the supply far outstrips any level of demand. What is that item?

Are You a ‘Settler’ In Your Own Land?

Victor Sharpe

Jewish communities, (villages and towns) do not consist of “settlers.” The Jewish population of Judea and Samaria (the so-called West Bank) consists of the descendants of the native and indigenous Jewish people who are now inhabiting and redeeming their own ancient land. This people are not “settlers” in what is already theirs by virtue of millennial physical and spiritual attachment.

The Environmental Impact of Environmentalism

The environmental orgy known as Earth Day has come and gone. In all the celebration, the one thing that is seemingly never asked is whether or not environmentalist policies by the government are actually helping the environment?


"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
