‘Upskirt’ ban passed by Massachusetts legislature after controversial ruling.
By Joshua Rhett Miller Published March 06, 2014
FoxNews.com: Massachusetts lawmakers approved a bill Thursday to ban those who secretly take ‘upskirt’ photographs of women or children in public.
The bill comes one day after the state Supreme Court ruled that a man who took cellphone photos up the skirts of female passengers riding the Boston subway didn’t violate state law, because the women were clothed.
“It is sexual harassment. It’s an assault on another person whether it’s a child or an adult,” Senate President Therese Murray said moments after the Senate unanimously approved the bill. “Woman and children should be able to go to public places without feeling that they are not protected by the law.” Read more at: foxnews.com.

The first lady congratulated a handful of residents who had just enrolled during an intimate event, asking one woman whether she had gotten her son to enroll. Read more at: tampacbslocal.com.

A White House official emailed some reporters to say that President Obama’s team met today to discuss the ongoing situation on Ukraine. It appears President Obama did not attend.
“The President’s national security team met today to receive an update on the situation in Ukraine and discuss potential policy options. We will provide further updates later this afternoon,” reads the full statement.
According to Time magazine’s Zeke Miller, Obama skipped the meeting. “Obama did not attend the meeting, but WH official says he has been briefed by Susan Rice and his national security team,” says Miller.
February 27, 2014: Mark Levin, aka The Great One, was the keynote speaker at today’s event celebrating the fifth anniversary Tea Party movement. Levin both thanked and congratulated those of us in this fight to regain our lost liberties, and he encouraged and implored us to keep up the struggle.
As you read these excerpts from Mark’s speech and watch this moving video, you will see that true conservatives in the sixties and seventies faced the same struggles with the so-called establishment, that tea party and other true conservatives face today. Stand tall my fellow warriors, he’s speaking of you!
“…The Tea Party movement is the only thing left that stands between what remains of our Republic and the tyranny of runaway government. And I say this from the bottom of my heart and my soul, and I thank you. You are the citizens from all walks of life and from every corner of the country, who possess the spirit and enthusiasm of the Founding Fathers, proclaim the principles of individual liberty and unalienable rights as set forth in our Declaration, and insist on the Federal Government’s compliance with the Constitution’s limits. You are astutely aware of the peril of the moment, and all that is at stake. And for this, you are smeared, and attacked by the ruling class, Democrats and Republicans alike, by the media from the New York Slimes to the Wall Street Journal, and countless others who are dragging this nation into the abyss. And I know that at times you wonder if we will be able to reverse course, you wonder if it’s all worth it, you wonder if you should live quiet lives among friends and tend to your own needs. But I also know you’re Americans and you cannot be idle and you will not be silenced while a relative handful of self-aggrandizing masterminds seek to lord over you and your fellow citizens. You will not let your country fail…”
“…You see Ronald Reagan was not part of the establishment, he was an outsider. And like you and so many others throughout history, he had the courage to stand up and be counted. And for this, also like you, Reagan and his supporters were disparaged and dismissed by the same ruling class…”
Levin then recited this quote from George Will, 1974:
“…Reagan is 63 and he looks it. His hair is so remarkably free of gray, but around the mouth and neck, he looks like an old man. He has never demonstrated substantial national appeal. His hardcore support today consists primarily of the Kamikaze Conservatives who thought the 1960 Goldwater campaign was jolly fun. And there is reason to doubt that Reagan is well suited to appeal to the electorate that just produced a Democratic landslide…”
I never thought I would be saying this but: How sad that we must fight not for new freedoms, nor to rise to new heights, but to maintain what we already have; and to reclaim what we once had, but lost. - ADB
Young Republican official: Tea Party is full of drooling, senile angry bullies who are ‘mad at everything’; Update: Tweets deleted
Nothing gets establishment GOPers more animated than the chance to trash conservatives who actually want to take back the country from socialist statists, rather than just manage the decay and benefit from crony capitalism. The latest kerfuffle between those who lovingly embrace the status quo and the “radical” Tea Party began with a debate between Breitbart.com writer Brandon Darby and Sen. John McCain campaign consultant John Weaver, who orchestrated such resounding conservative victories as John McCain 2000 and John McCain 2008. Read more at: Michelle Malkin’s twitchy.com.
