Ponder This:

Real public servants are free enterprising individuals who, inspired, embrace challenge, take risks, and create, sometimes big, and often, they create jobs in the process, all out of their ideas, and self initiative...

Sat May 1, 2010: Scott Bullock & Tim Sandefur on Eminent Domain Abuse, & Piedad Ayala, Conservative, Republican, Immigrant on Immigration Politics



Join me on the air, Saturday from 10 to 11AM and 8 to 11 PM PT, one fast hour in the morning and three fun hours on Saturday night, on CRN, on
CRNtalk.com CRN 1

Call in number: 1-800-336-2225
This Saturday, I broadcast live from the M.O.R.R. Conference on Redevelopment, concerning Government abuse of eminent domain, and abuse of individual property rights.

I'll interview Scott Bullock, Senior Attorney for the Institute for Justice in Washington D.C., who is the Keynote Speaker, and Timothy Sandefur of Pacific Legal Foundation, Principal Attorney, Pacific Legal Foundation, Sacramento, Author of the book "Cornerstone of Liberty: Property Rights in 21st-Century America," and John Eastman-former Dean of the Law School, Chapman University, and Candidate for California Attorney Gerneral. Former clerk, Justice Clarance Thomas. Dr. Eastman successfully stopped the Long Beach redevelopment agency "condemnation and taking" of the Filipino Baptist Fellowship Church in Long Beach, CA.

Saturday night, on Moonlighting, my special guest is Piedad Ayala, founder and member of The Water for All, a coalition of farmers, growers, Ag Industry business owners, their employees, and farm workers, all battling together.

They are fighting against Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar and the EPA, and particularly Nancy Pelosi, and Democrat Congressional Reps from CA, Jim Costa, Dennis Cardoza, and Grace Napolitano.

Ayala is a passionate political activist who has realized the American Dream. When he speaks with boldness, to groups, in English or in Spanish, to Latinos, or non Hispanics, and when he speaks, he stirs hearts and minds and inspires courage, and conviction. 

He is dedicated to doing all he can, to spread the message to all, including fellow Latino voters who traditionally vote Democrat when what they want is embodied in the principles and values supported by Conservative Republicans.

But the Immigration issue is a hot potato and the dissonance and heated discourse around the recent passage of Arizona's immigration law have raised steep hurdles. We'll talk about what we've got going on right, where have we been making inroads, and how does this issue and the politics surrounding it bode for upcoming election results.

Jack Dean joins me to talk about the Pension Tsunami hitting States across the country, and particularly hard in California. 
The lines are open. I hope you put us on your calendar, tune in, give us a call, and join us for hot talk radio, Saturday at 10 to 11AM PT, and 8 to 11PM PT, one fast hour in the morning and three fun hours on Saturday night, on CRN 1

Botched Paramilitary Police Raids: An Epidemic of "Isolated Incidents"

"If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern." —Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006. An interactive map of botched SWAT and paramilitary police raids, released in conjunction with the Cato policy paper "Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids," by Radley Balko.

Key

Death of an innocent. Death or injury of a police officer. Death of a nonviolent offender.
Raid on an innocent suspect. Other examples of paramilitary police excess. Unnecessary raids on doctors and sick people.
The proliferation of SWAT teams, police militarization, and the Drug War have given rise to a dramatic increase in the number of "no-knock" or "quick-knock" raids on suspected drug offenders. Because these raids are often conducted based on tips from notoriously unreliable confidential informants, police sometimes conduct SWAT-style raids on the wrong home, or on the homes of nonviolent, misdemeanor drug users. Such highly-volatile, overly confrontational tactics are bad enough when no one is hurt -- it's difficult to imagine the terror an innocent suspect or family faces when a SWAT team mistakenly breaks down their door in the middle of the night. But even more disturbing are the number of times such "wrong door" raids unnecessarily lead to the injury or death of suspects, bystanders, and police officers. Defenders of SWAT teams and paramilitary tactics say such incidents are isolated and rare. The map above aims to refute that notion.
