A kind of politics we have not seen for more than 150 years

Two big examples of problematic self-government are upon us. They are of course the possible partial shutdown of the federal government, following the long-running hamstringing of public functions via "the sequester"; and a possible vote not to raise the federal debt ceiling, which would create the prospect of a default on U.S. Treasury debt. The details are complicated, but please don't lose sight of these three essential points: Now a few details:

If it's Friday, it's another White House dump day. Cue the dump truck horn: Doot! Doot! Doot!

While Obama sycophants are busy trumpeting deceptive jobs numbers, the administration is quietly moving forward with job-killing Obamacare regs and taxes. The IRS today released rules to impose the $20 billion Obamacare medical device tax scheduled to take effect next year. At a time when the White House is touting its government initiatives to champion "innovation," the Obamacare innovation tax on medical device/diagnostic manufacturers will kill an estimated 43,000 jobs.

My friends at the Maryland Conservative Action Network were kind enough to invite me to speak on a panel about New Media at their "Turning the Tides" conference Saturday in Annapolis.

Then on Friday, a friend sent me a link to a Huffington Post article calling for protests of the conference. This is very good news: Nothing like a bunch of noisy left-wing protesters to garner some free publicity and, as every conservative knows, you're nobody until you've been denounced by CAIR.

Here we go again. You remember where the "Day of Rage" 2011 festivities first broke out earlier this fall, don't you?

Unionized longshoremen stormed the port there and took a half-dozen guards hostage in early September. They damaged railroad cars and dumped grain, smashed windows, cut brake lines, and blocked a train for hours while the ILWU and AFL-CIO cheered them on. Despite violating a judicial restraining order and committing systematically planned sabotage and trespassing, most of the thugs got away with wrist slaps. The International Longshore and Warehouse Union received a $250,000 fine to cover damages from the vandalism. One of the mobsters arrested was this unhinged ILWU guy, who threatened to beat up KGW reporters...

Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod and his hatchet people are still yammering about GOP presidential rival Mitt Romney's overseas investments.

It's time for the Romney campaign to educate voters about all the shady financial institutions embraced by Democrats right here on American soil. The fat-cat narrative attacks on Republicans won't go away by making nice with the White House - or by relying on Beltway journalists to drop their double standards and vet the president's own bad bank entanglements. Indeed, The New York Times admitted this week that their staff and other political journalists from every major media outlet submit their work to the White House for unprecedented review, editing and "veto power." Fortunately, the truth manipulators and message massagers haven't gotten to this column yet. So, let's talk sleazy Democratic Party-backed banks, shall we?

Straight outta moonbat central casting...

Some people think the Occupy Wall Street/Whatever movement harkens back to the 1960s. Me? I'm getting bad, late 1980s flashbacks.

Have you been paying attention to the news lately? Have you seen where your rights are being flushed down the toilet on a daily basis? I feel like we were safe for a few moments after 9/11.

The government started to look into conversations and into computers where they had never poked their noses before. Don't get me wrong. As you read on, you'll see that I don't like people snooping on me because, in the end, I want my privacy respected. But at the beginning of all of this, I thought it was OK. Like many of you, I wanted terrorists caught by any means possible. I wanted those punks who wanted to destroy America to be found. If that meant wiretapping and all sorts of other ways of spying on our people, then so be it. The problem is that something went wrong - very wrong.

Last month, I did something I'd done only once before: I went to a range and shot some guns. Lots of guns. All shapes, ages and sizes. This is a very strange thing to do for a guy born British. Guns feature nowhere in British culture.

Accordingly, I was unsurprised by the reaction of my mother when I called home and told her that I'd had a great time learning about firearms and discovering I wasn't a bad shot, even with a second-world-war Enfield. "That's the last thing I'd ever imagine you'd enjoy doing," she said to me. She wasn't being judgmental: it was an expression of genuine surprise. "That's because you just can't imagine why nice or normal people would enjoy guns ... because you don't know any... no Brits know any," I replied. Mom thoughtfully agreed.

"Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer's life if necessary." Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306.

This premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case: John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529. The Court stated: "Where the officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. What may be murder in the first case might be nothing more than manslaughter in the other, or the facts might show that no offense had been committed."

In an era where virtually every phone is a combination audio recorder, still shot and video camera, one disturbing trend of late has been the increasing habit of police to arrest citizens who record their activities in the public square.

Glenn Reynolds, in the Examiner, goes on to detail the additional case of Simon Glik in Massachusetts, who recently won an appeal in the United States Court of Appeals For The First Circuit. Mr. Glik was arrested for videotaping police in the act of detaining a suspect on a public street and subsequently charged with "wiretapping." I should say up front that I'm pretty much always a big supporter of the police, having had more than a few of them in our family. But when they conduct their business out in public, they are held to a high standard. If they are dong their jobs properly, they should have nothing to fear from the scrutiny of the rest of the citizens.
