444921 High Crimes and Misdemeanors Active Federal New York, NY, USA New York NY US You keep hearing, "Impeachment--it's a constitutional crisis, a constitutional crisis." Well, I don't really understand that. It's provided for right there in the Constitution, and the last thing the framers were worried about was weakening the president's power too much. They had just fought a revolution to throw offa king, which is why, in the months they discussed the impeachment clause-- It's funny, when you look back at it now, they discuss it almost exclusively in terms of impeaching the president. 0000-00-00 00:00:00 0000-00-00 00:00:00 anncoulter 2019-06-29 02:11:00 no 0 320140 Proj:444921 127 5 4 2019-06-29 02:18:05 40.7127753 No -74.0059728 Yes 168077 no Project banner 444921.jpg 0 0 0
679594 On Impeachability Active Global New York, NY, USA New York NY US No book can ever have been more pertinent than our guest's. Ann Coulter has written High Crimes and Misdemeanors. Ms. Coulter examines convincingly and resourcefully the phrase, "high crimes and misdemeanors," as one would expect of an author that has written a book with that title. The central emphasis is on what James Madison had in mind when he considered the question of impeachment. Quoting Madison, Ms. Coulter writes, "The first aim of the Constitution was to ensure that men with the most virtue would become the nation's rulers. The Constitution's impeachment power was for keeping them virtuous whilst they continued to hold their public trust." 0000-00-00 00:00:00 0000-00-00 00:00:00 wfbjr 2019-06-28 20:08:07 no 0 320137 Proj:679594 127 5 4 2019-06-29 02:45:49 40.7127753 No -74.0059728 Yes 679594 no Cityscape of New York New York United States size-k.jpeg 0 0 0
697366 Real Rape Active Federal Los Angeles, CA, USA Los Angeles Los Angeles County CA US The individual gets convicted long before he or she has had an opportunity to defend himself.

386873 Vietnam Draft: Conscientious Objection Historical Solved Federal Louisville, KY, USA Louisville Jefferson County KY US War is against the teachings of the Qur'an. I'm not trying to dodge the draft. We are not supposed to take part in no wars unless declared by Allah or The Messenger. We don't take part in Christian wars or wars of any unbelievers." He stated: "Man, I ain't got no quarrel with them Viet Cong. Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go ten thousand miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights?

My enemy is the white people, not Viet Cong or Chinese or Japanese. Youmy opposer when I want freedom. You my opposer when I want justice. You my opposer when I want equality. You won't even stand up for me in America for my religious beliefs—and you want me to go somewhere and fight, but you won't even stand up for me here at home?

43169 2018 International Religious Freedom Report (Rastafari) Active Global Washington D.C., DC, USA Washington District of Columbia DC US In the Bahamas, Rastafarians said the government discriminated against them because of their use of marijuana and dreadlocks. Rastafarians continued to be arrested for possessing small quantities of marijuana they used in ceremonial rituals and subjected to having their hair (locks) cut in prison. Rastafarians stated officials required family members of Rastafarian prisoners to pay to receive a vegetarian diet while in prison. Rastafarians also said the government discriminated against them in discussions on the legalization of marijuana for medicinal use.

In St. Lucia, Rastafarian community representatives reported their reluctance to use marijuana for religious purposes because marijuana use was illegal and subject to punitive fines. Rastafarians said they continued to face discrimination in the school system because the Ministry of Education required vaccinations for all children attending school; Rastafarians continued to oppose vaccination, which they stated was part of their religious beliefs. Government officials and Rastafarian community members said some Rastafarian families decided to vaccinate their children or to homeschool. They also reported national insurance plans did not cover traditional doctors used by the Rastafarian community.

14287 International Religious Freedom Act Active Global Washington D.C., DC, USA Washington District of Columbia DC US The right to freedom of religion is under renewed and, in some cases, increasing assault in many countries around the world. More than one-half of the world’s population lives under regimes that severely restrict or prohibit the freedom of their citizens to study, believe, observe, and freely practice the religious faith of their choice. Religious believers and communities suffer both government-sponsored and government-tolerated violations of their rights to religious freedom. Among the many forms of such violations are state-sponsored slander campaigns, confiscations of property, desecration of cemeteries, surveillance by security police, including by special divisions of “religious police”, severe prohibitions against construction and repair of places of worship, denial of the right to assemble and relegation of religious communities to illegal status through arbitrary registration laws, prohibitions against the pursuit of education or public office, and prohibitions against publishing, distributing, or possessing religious literature and materials. A policy or practice of routinely denying applications for visas for religious workers in a country can be indicative of a poor state of religious freedom in that country.

Even more abhorrent, religious believers in many countries face such severe and violent forms of religious persecution as detention, torture, beatings, forced marriage, rape, imprisonment, enslavement, mass resettlement, and death merely for the peaceful belief in, change of or practice of their faith. In many countries, religious believers are forced to meet secretly, and religious leaders are targeted by national security forces and hostile mobs.
