Where’s the anger at a bloated nanny government that doesn’t stand up for our bedrock principle of freedom of speech, but instead rounds up a citizen by force in the middle of the night for political reasons? Where is the reaction from the press; where are all the civil rights groups; where is the ACLU? (more…)

(ORANGE COUNTY, CA) – Elizabeth Emken, Republican challenger for U.S. Senate in California, today released the following statement regarding this morning’s employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

“The latest unemployment figures are simply unacceptable, especially when growing numbers of people have simply given up trying to get a job, business owners are hesitant to commit to expanding and hiring, and our economy has become so sluggish that even a whisper of an economic turnaround gets a standing ovation.
