Folks all I can say is God bless the Mississippi House of Representatives, which voted 116-2 in favor of passage of Rep. Jeff Smith’s measure, which guarantees certain of our constitutional rights from the interference of activists courts located in Judicial hellholes like Nova Scotia Canada. Yesterday House Bill 44 was sent to the Senate and now is awaiting action in the Mississippi Senate’s Judiciary A committee, where it is my hope it will be well received.
That House Bill 44 has cleared some very important procedural hurdles and remains very much alive, now assigned to the House Judiciary committee. On the not so good news front it appears Representative Richard Bennett of Long Beach may have snookered the Sun Herald last month. I mention this because in January the paper ran a story about Bennett working with Auditor Pickering to insure every state agency is audited. Heck, they even did an editorial on it. I know I’ve been checking periodically to see how Bennett’s legislation is doing and everytime I go to his legislative web page this is what I see on that issue:

Come join Jim Brown and I as we discuss Mississippi House Bill 44 aka Leary’s law, a subject which I am an expert. Here in Mississippi, if you pick up the Genesis Radio network signals from Hattiesburg, Jackson or McComb you can find us. The full list of nationwide affiliates can be found here. Those of you that are outside the broadcast radius of the Genesis Network can listen online or even telephonically.
I think we need a name for Mississippi House Bill 44 such as Leary’s law or the SLAPP Happy Nut job Foreign Judgment Non Enforcement Act of 2014. I imagine the folks in officialdom in Nova Scotia, now known for being a defamation haven from which felonious politicians and their close business associates can sue their US based critics will be paying close attention to the bill sponsored by State Representative Jeffrey Smith from District 39, which has now been referred to the House Judiciary A Committee. Editorially Slabbed New Media is 100% behind House Bill 44. The preamble from Section 1 well explains:
The Legislature finds that it is the public policy of this state to protect its citizens from the application of foreign laws when the application of a foreign law will result in the violation of a right guaranteed by the Constitution of this state or of the United States, including, but not limited to, due process, freedom of religion, speech, or press, and any right of privacy or marriage as specifically defined by the Constitution of this state.
