In an exclusive interview with Sunshine State News, Professor Elizabeth Price Foley of Florida International University College of Law condemns what she insists were "misleading" early media stories on a report she authored on three Florida Supreme Court justices up for retention on the November ballot.
The report – titled “A Review of the Florida Supreme Court: 2000-2012” and published on behalf of the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies, the nation's premier fellowship of conservative and libertarian lawyers and law students -- is being hailed by supporters of the justices as some sort of vindication of their record on the bench. Justices Barbara Pariente, R. Fred Lewis, and Peggy Quince are accused by their critics of being left-wing activists who do not rule in accordance with the principles of originalism, the doctrine that judges ought to interpret law according to its original public meaning.
Foley’s report is a review of nine rulings over the past 12 years which she says are among the justices’ “most controversial.” Foley does say that “there does not appear to be a pattern of unprincipled decision-making by any of the justices of the Florida Supreme Court.” However, she goes on to say that “[t]here are ... discernible voting patterns on the Florida Supreme Court and they seem to be based on the general ideological leanings of the justices.”

(ed.: Could this be why Romney did not engage Obama on this subject during the last debate?)
By Doug Hagmann Sunday, October 28, 2012
Most people know that we’ve been lied to about the attacks in Benghazi, but few realize the extent of those lies or the hidden secrets they cover. After all, the lie is different at every level. Thanks to a well placed source with extensive knowledge about the attack, the disturbing truth is slowly beginning to emerge and is lining up with information contained in my previous articles published here weeks ago (Here, Here and Here). The truth reveals the most serious situation in the world today as it involves the interests and destinies of us all.
A mosaic of lies
According to the U.S. government, Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed during a spontaneous protest at the consulate office in Benghazi by a frenzied crowd of Muslims outraged over an obscure internet video. Recently released “sensitive but not classified e-mails” from Stevens to the U.S. Department of State painted a picture of poor security for U.S. personnel and the embassy, which was obviously truebut had little to do with the events of September 11, 2012. The failure to dispatch an extraction team or otherwise rescue the men during a firefight that lasted upwards of nine grueling and tortuous hours was not the result of any intelligence failure, but caused by our unwillingness to widen the conflict and expose the nature and scale of our true mission in Benghazi.
Based on information provided by my source and corroborated elsewhere, the official account by administration officials is a mosaic of lies that were necessary to cover the unpalatable truth of covert actions taking place in Libya, Syria, Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon. The primary objective of our covert actions was to secretly arm anti-Assad “rebels” in Syria by funneling arms from Libya to Syria via Turkey, with other destinations that included Jordan and Lebanon. Regarding the threat to Stevens and the other murdered Americans, the truth will reformat the persistent question posed to government officials, from UN Ambassador Susan Rice to White House Spokesman Jay Carney and others from “how could you not have known” to “how could you have done these things?”
First, it is important to understand that Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Dougherty and Tyrone Woods were not killed at a consulate office in Benghazi—as there is not such office there. They died at one of the largest CIA operations centers in the Middle East, which was located in Benghazi and served as the logistics headquarters for arms and weapons being shipped out of the post-Qaddafi Libya.

New IG report slams @USDOL #green #jobs training program - How effective was taxpayer $$ spent? Answer
WASHINGTON – The Department of Labor’s Office of the Inspector General cast new doubt on the effectiveness of the Administration’s Green Jobs Training Program. According to the newly released report requested by Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Jim Jordan, the report revealed that the Department of Labor has further squandered taxpayer money since the program was flagged by the IG last year.

Connie Mack came to Memorial Park in Stuart this Sunday with Mayor Rudy Giuliani to speak to the voters of Martin County. Both men spoke of the need to take the Senate so that a real budget can be passed to reduce the deficit and balance the budget. Mack made a point of emphasizing his position that nothing else should advance in the Senate until a budget is passed.
The video clip above is part of a 15 minute address (recorded by Richard Nickson of our group). We selected this shorter snip because of Congressman Mack's comment on defunding the United Nations. The Congressman then posed in front of our signs against U.N. Agenda 21.
We thanked Congressman Mack for posing with the sign, and he pulled out a marker and bent over to sign the sign (right over the "NO"), as he said, "I'll do this any time!"

“So what do you want? Dumb Growth?” this feller yelled at me from across the meeting room. He thought he was smart. (I thought that smart was probably only the first half of his handle.) I was supposed to be instantly shamed into silence. I wasn’t. “Why yes I do,” I replied. “If you mean by that- dumb is what we want to do with our lives and property and smart is what you want to make us do. Under that definition, dumb is what built this country. If dumb means the people’s freedom to choose, then dumb is better.”
He was a government trained facilitator. He was not supposed to lose control. But he did. He slammed his briefcase shut and stormed out of the room. By now folks had figured out what he was really up to anyway, so for him, that might have been smart.
We, on the other hand, are just dumb. Read the article on NewsWithViews...

When we list the areas that Barack Obama wants to “fundamentally transform” as he promised before his 2008 election, let’s not overlook his plans for education. They are as fundamentally transformational, costly and dictatorial as ObamaCare.

Agenda 21 is the United Nations plan to inventory and control every aspect of human activity. Agenda 21 calls for the elimination of individual rights, private property and national sovereignty. The government will be controlled by the Elite. The United Nations will grant your rights so you will be controlled.
Sign this petition to protect our individual rights, private property and national sovereignty.
The petition is from the AgEnders and is located on agenda21today.com
It is modeled after the Alabama Bill which passed and has been used successfully to eliminate the Baldwin Co comprehensive plan in favor of a new plan that will protect private property rights.
It was written by Henry Lamb, Don Casey and Ken Freeman.
It was edited by our attorney to make sure it was compliant with Florida law.

There is a scriptural adage that says that we should avoid “all appearance of evil.” Growing up, I took this to mean that in order to maintain our integrity and good standing, we should avoid any association or activity that could reasonably appear to be evil whether or not it actually was evil.
For the record, the title of this piece does not suggest that judges or unions are evil. My suggestion is simply that they may be entangled in a conflict of interest that has a very questionable appearance. Let me explain.
In 2011, Florida’s legislature passed a law requiring state employees to contribute three-percent of their salary into their pensions, saving taxpayers $1 billion per year. The unions sued to get this money back. On September 7th the Florida Supreme Court heard arguments. They are currently deliberating whether they should overturn the law and award that billion dollars back to the state employees.
Under normal circumstances this is a fiscally important case; but in this election year it’s nuclear.
The Justices are running for retention. Until recently their primary supporters were members of the legal community. For the past two years there has been no recognized support for the Justices outside of the legal community. We have learned, however, that they suddenly have a new ally, public sector unions.
Recently, the First Fraternal Order of Police and the Florida Professional Fire Fighters associations announced their support of Justices Pariente, Quince and Lewis. Although they’ve adopted anti-political rhetoric, their motive is transparent enough.
Why would the leadership of the police and fire unions take the unprecedented step of backing three Supreme Court Justices? Do they have anything to gain by joining their campaigns? I can’t think of anything they’d gain by backing these three Justices except their share of one billion dollars.
Think about it: Justices Pariente, Quince and Lewis are deciding whether to direct $1 billion to public employees and unions, some of which are directly supporting their campaigns! Is this evil? That's for you to decide. Does it have the “appearance of evil”? Yes.
I’m sure the Justices insist they will make their billion-dollar decision with absolute objectivity and that the unions’ vital role in their re-election will not cross their minds even once. I’m sure the unions will say that they are just looking out for the poor Justices whose $1 million campaign is being threatened by an evil youth pastor on Facebook.
Behind all of the rhetoric is a nagging question: is it ethical for a judge to make a ruling in a case when the primary financial beneficiary is also a known supporter of his re-election?
From the unions' perspective, is it ethical to suddenly join the campaign of a judge who is about to decide whether you will receive a share of a $1 billion payout?
I’ve been accused of compromising the Court’s independence. Ironic, isn’t it?
If the Court is to maintain its integrity and avoid the appearance of evil, Justices Pariente, Quince and Lewis should recuse themselves from this decision. That’s the only way they can avoid the charge of abusing their positions and gaining union support by the potential of a favorable ruling.
Do the right thing, Justices Pariente, Quince and Lewis. Recuse yourself. At the very least, issue a ruling on this case before the election.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. ... those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. -C. S. Lewis
Back in the early 90's, I listened to Henry Lamb and Joan Veon on satellite radio telling us about United Nations Agenda 21 and what was coming to America. Now it's here, and it's in every city and county in America.
Some towns have citizenry who are aware and active enough to stall or destroy the efforts of local planners and Smart Growth. Other areas, despite large populations, have few who are willing to protect and fight for their property rights. In Knoxville, TN, few citizens go to city and county commission meetings and/or to local groups or meetings to fight Agenda 21 and Smart Growth.
Our county population is nearly 500,000, yet at the latest county commission meeting, there were less than a dozen knowledgeable people who attended this extremely important meeting. (We'll discuss this in part 2.) Our enemies are winning because of the apathy of our citizenry, and the work load is killing those of us who do all the fighting.
Let me tell you about the area where I've lived for the last 25 years. Midwest flatland doesn't exist in East Tennessee. It is a very hilly, beautiful area surrounded by the Smoky Mountains, lush with forests, lakes, rivers, and hiking trails.

Journalists rarely take a vocal stand against legislation in order to remain objective, but sometimes new laws are such an egregious assault on our basic rights to democracy and freedom that we have a duty to speak up.
This is the case with the National Defense Authorization Act, a relatively new law that gives the U.S. military the power to detain anyone without trial indefinitely, further criminalizing dissent and investigative journalism in the United States.
What does the NDAA do?
The NDAA gives the federal government the power to behave like dictators and arrest any American citizen, or anyone for that matter, without warrant and indefinitely detain them in offshore prisons without charge and keep them there until “the end of hostilities.”
The American Civil Liberties Union, calls the law a “catastrophic blow to civil liberties”.
Obama lied to the public and said he would veto the NDAA’s indefinite detention clauses. Instead, he surreptitiously signed the NDAA into law on Dec. 31, 2011 while most Americans were distracted celebrating New Years Eve. Both Romney and Obama have publicly stated their support for the new law.
“I’m not doing anything wrong, I don’t need to worry about the NDAA”
You do need to worry.

During the overnight Senate session that resulted in the passage of a “de facto declaration of war” on Iran and a stopgap bill that funded the federal government through March, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) tried to push through a vote on next year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), as well.
An article published online by Government Executive magazine reports that at about 1:40 a.m. Saturday, September 22, Reid worked the floor trying to get support for the latest renewal of the controversial defense funding measure before his colleagues abandoned the Capitol for their home states.
"I've been asked on a number of occasions by Senator [Carl] Levin, Senator [John] McCain what we're going to do on ... the Defense Authorization bill. I ask unanimous consent that at a time to be determined by me, after consultation with the Republican leader, the Senate proceed to ... the Defense authorization bill," Reid said, according to the Government Executive story.
Foreign Policy blog The Cable reports that upon learning of Reid’s pre-dawn parliamentary plans, “Senate Minority Jon Kyl (R-AZ) objected ... because Reid wanted unanimous consent to structure the debate with limited amendments and because Kyl couldn't check with his caucus, as almost all senators had left the chamber.”

In case you are one of those who doubt that our local government is promoting the United Nation’s Agenda 21 by way of unelected panels of people serving on “regional planning commissions” — groups who are pushing for the implementation of programs like “Plan NH”, “Sustainable Communities Initiatives”, and “Granite State Future”, programs that just seemed to pop up out of nowhere and have funding from the EPA/HUD/DOT, here’s proof.
From the Dent County Commissioners in Missouri, we have a portion of their letter of rejection to Missouri’s regional planners…
“This Sustainable Development Program of HUD, DOT, and EPA is directly, and irrefutably connected with the United Nations Agenda 21. Both President Bill Clinton and most recently President Barack Obama have signed Executive Orders directing all agencies of the Federal Government to work with state and local community governments in a joint effort to “reinvent” government using the guidelines outlined in the United Nations Agenda 21. The tenets of Agenda 21 undermine private property rights and propose extreme environmental, social, economic and educational policies to be implemented worldwide by National, State and Local governing bodies through the use of Sustainable Development planning, programs and policies.”
Here you see the claims of Dent County supported with text that came straight from US State Dept documents:
