Listening Info



Meredith Dake reports about the lawsuit aimed at Andrew Breitbart and Larry O’Connor the head of Breitbart.tv.  Papers were served these gentlemen at CPAC Meridith Dake was there and she will give us the rest of the story.

Meredith writes:

Meredith writes-I am a contributor at Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism and Big Hollywood and know Andrew personally. I have a close association with the other defendant in this lawsuit, Larry O’Connor. I am the producer/co-host for his nightly internet radio show.

This email (or post) and all the information it contains have been obtained organically through my own investigation and research across the internet, including the “Bigs” sites. I am the original and only author of this email (or post). No one, including Andrew, Larry, or anyone associated with Breitbart.com contributed or has knowledge that I’m even writing this. This is all my own doing. Why? Because when I saw this bully tactic in the form of a lawsuit I became incensed. This story infuriates me and I’m going to do my very best to respond.

States Consider Allowing Guns on Campus

Published February 23, 2011

Gun control is a hot-button issue across the country, and college campuses are now at the center of this growing debate.

Students and professors at Texas public universities may soon be able to carry guns on campus, according to a recent measure in the state’s House of Representatives. More than half of its members have signed on as co-authors of the measure, and the Senate passed a similar bill in 2009.

Eight other states including Arizona, Tennessee, Michigan, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Florida, Nebraska and Mississippi have pending “campus carry” legislation underway as well, according to David Burnett, director of public relations for Students for Concealed Carry on Campus.

Adrienne O’Reilly, the Oklahoma Director of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus joins us tonight and explains why she is advocating for four bills filed in the Oklahoma state legislature that will allow concealed carry by licensed individuals on college campuses.  Adrienne says that these bills are in danger of dying without ever being heard.  We will get an update on these bills from Adrienne and find out what we can do to help bring concealed carry to Oklahoma college campuses.

On  Feb 22, 2011 Ok2A writes:

On Monday, OK2A, along with almost 20 other conservative grassroots groups, began circulating a discharge petition at the Capitol.  House rules allow for discharge petitions as a means to get a bill brought out of a committee for a vote on the floor if 68 Representatives sign.

We will find out about more about this grassroots effort  to advance the bill to committee in order to get a fair hearing.

States Challenging DC-

I cut out all the free publicity for Gov. perry of Texas who will be the death of the Tenth Amendment movement with his hay making and insincere political rhetoric.  I have yet to hear any genuineTenth Amendment advocates bleating about seccession like the Texas Gov.

Perry’s dubious involvement with the TTC makes his sudden love for the Tenth extremely questionable.

Here is the interesting part of the article;

Challenging Washington

More commonplace are states’ rights movements to directly challenge federal laws, a citizen revolt that one scholar says is unparalleled in modern times. Among the actions in which states are thumbing their nose at Washington:

■ Montana and Tennessee have enacted legislation declaring that firearms made and kept within those states are beyond the authority of the federal government. Similar versions of the law, known as the Firearms Freedom Act, have been introduced in at least four other states.

■ Arizona lawmakers will let voters decide a proposed state constitutional amendment that would opt the state out of federal healthcare mandates under consideration in Congress. The amendment will be placed on the November 2010 ballot. State Rep. Nancy Barto, R-Phoenix, said five other states considered similar versions of the amendment this year and at least nine others are expected to do so next year.

■ Nearly two dozen states have approved resolutions refusing to participate in the Real ID Act of 2005, which requires that driver’s licenses and state ID cards conform to federal standards. A similar resolution was introduced in the 2009 Texas Legislature but died in committee.

■ A campaign called “Bring the Guard Home” is pushing legislation in 23 states that would empower governors to recall state National Guard units from Iraq on the premise that the federal law authorizing such deployments has expired. “It’s gaining momentum, to say the least,” said Jim Draeger, program manager for Peace Action Wisconsin. He said the initiative has a respectable chance of passing the Legislature in his state.
