    I received an email from former Navy Seal, Scott Taylor asking for a donation so that they can air their special documentary, "Bump In The Road," along side of the "Seal Team Six,The Raid on Osama Bin Laden." The Seals are outraged that the president is using this as a political tool to win re-election. From what I can tell, this is already airing in Ohio and Virginia. They are asking for funds to keep it running until Election Day. Please visit their website to see a trailer. They are outraged that their service is being exploited. . https://support.opsecteam.org/donation4/?initiativekey=RUELRR2NJHJ0

    Finally, a court that stands up for a right that isn't the right to rip babies apart with other people's money. The Fifth Circuit court essentially told the abortion giant Planned Parenthood to shut their whining gobs and that Texas has a right to not fund them. This victory is being called a "roadmap" for any state that wants to defund Planned Parenthood. A lot of states have tried. Texas did it. This is a very bad day for Planned Parenthood. And a bad day for Planned Parenthood is a good day for babies.

    Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 26 October, 2012 | David Codrea
    The executive director of GeorgiaCarry.org, a state gun rights group, took to the airwaves yesterday on Atlanta’s NBC 11 Alive to weigh in on Wednesday’s shooting at Pastor Creflo Dollar's World Changers Church International, a College Park megachurch. Jerry Henry faced questions from news anchor Ted Hall and assertions by disarmament advocate State Senator Donzella James to explain why his group believes the choice should be left to the churches. Henry’s group is leading a fight to overturn a state law dictating disarmament, and has submitted a petition to the United States Supreme Court, presenting a single question: "Does a...

    The Presidential debates were Exhibit A for Obama's habit of "misplacing the truth" (ie lying). Obama told lots of hard-to-believe whoppers about his support of guns; his love of the oil, gas and coal industries; his unshakeable loyalty to Israel; and of course his response to the Libya Embassy attack. Boy can this guy misplace facts. Only a lawyer could say stuff like that with a straight face. But the biggest whopper of all was when Obama claimed to be a champion of small business. He stressed this misguided storyline in all three nationally-televised debates. Obama even made a specific...

    Debate moderators and reporters love to ask pro-life candidates hard questions about abortion. Curiously, they don’t do the same for pro-choice candidates. Here are 10 questions you never hear a pro-choice candidate asked by the media: 1. You say you support a woman’s right to make her own reproductive choices in regards to abortion and contraception. Are there any restrictions you would approve of? 2. In 2010, The Economist featured a cover story on “the war on girls” and the growth of “gendercide” in the world – abortion based solely on the sex of the baby. Does this phenomenon pose...

    After the House held Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. in contempt on June 28, it filed a civil suit in federal district court on August 13. The purpose is to enforce a subpoena issued by the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which requested documents for its investigation of "Operation Fast and Furious." The House complaint charges obstruction by the Justice Department and a need to understand why it provided false information to Congress in a letter of February 4, 2011. Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) had written to the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF),...

    In an off the record conversation with the Des Moines Register that made it on to the record, Barack Obama stated that, “Should I win a second term, a big reason I will win a second term is because the Republican nominee and the Republican Party have so alienated the fastest-growing demographic group in the country, the Latino community.” Obama, did not mention, however, what he and the Democrats will offer to the Hispanic community. To see what he thinks will animate this demographic, it is worth looking at his Spanish language ads. In September he released an ad featuring...

    While the current administration has strayed far from Barack Obama's 2008 campaign promise that it would be the most transparent government in history, nothing so points to its failure to keep that promise as have events of the past two years. Starting with the killing of Osama bin Laden in May 2011, the Obama administration has, in a very real sense, "informed" Americans of current events via selective and random leaks (many of them apparently unintentional). For example, on the day after the bin Laden mission, both the president and the vice president identified SEAL Team 6 as the unit...

    Fact 1: According to Special Ops Lt, Colonel "Doug" calling Rush Limbaugh today, there are standing orders for instant flash communication about any attacks on US Ambassadors or four-star generals. As soon as the assault on the Benghazi mission started, local personnel notified the US Embassy in Tripoli, which triggered an instant alarm in Washington, DC. The President's military aide knows within a few minutes and is required to notify POTUS immediately. Two separate "In Extremis" rescue teams were alerted, a C-130 was ready, and F-18 jet bombers. US personnel laser-spotted the Libyan mortar team that killed Americans, pointing the...

    LOGAN - A man was shot after reportedly trespassing at home near Logan this morning. At around 5 a.m. Friday, Oct. 26, 911 received a call from the Trailways Bus Company from someone who said that a man had become disorderly on the bus and had been dropped off near mile post 282 on Interstate 90. Then, at around 5:22 a.m., the 911 center received a call from a residence on Carpenter Lane near Logan of a criminal trespass in progress. Minutes later, 911 received a second call from the same residence from someone calling to report that that trespasser...

    Horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing have boosted shale gas production from zero a few years ago to 10% of all US energy supplies in 2012, observes energy analyst Daniel Yergin. Fracking has also increased US oil production 25% since 2008 – almost all on state and private lands, and in the face of more federal land and resource withdrawals, permitting delays and declining public land production. In the process, the fracking revolution created 1.7 million jobs in oil fields, equipment manufacturing, legal and information technology services, and other sectors. It will generate over $60 billion this year in state and...

    The Democratic war on women continues... Women as sexual objects, propelled by, caring for their lady parts, acting only on their uncontrollable hormones; passive creatures, unable to care for themselves, needing someone/something to care for them, ("The Life of Julia"). This is the foundation of Democratic attitudes towards women, their feelings about women. And Democratic women agree, actively participating in this narrative. Lena Dunham, the 26 year old wunderkind, the child of privilege, the Oberlin (Ohio) College graduate who created, writes for and stars in HBO's award winning Girls, (the contemporary Sex and the City for under 30 females) is...
  • Michigan Court of Appeals: Gun owners can open carry in district libraries

    LANSING, MI -- Open-carry advocates notched a victory today before the Michigan Court of Appeals, which reversed a lower-court decision that had allowed the Capital Area District Library to ban guns inside its Lansing-area branches. Two members of a three-judge panel concluded that district libraries such as CADL are "quasi-municipal" entities that, like other local public libraries, are subject to state law regarding gun possession. Michigan law prohibits owners from bringing guns into schools, child care centers, sports arenas, churches, certain entertainment facilities, hospitals and colleges. But there is no statute prohibiting weapons from being brought into public libraries. "Certainly,...

    Even for one who follows the news obsessively — one such as I — it has been extremely difficult to keep up with the developments in the Benghazigate story this week. In his weekly column, Mark Steyn incorporates Thursday’s and Friday’s breaking news and brings the story up to date with his characteristic flair: “We’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video,” said Hillary Clinton. No, not the person who made the video saying that voting for Barack Obama is like losing your virginity to a really cool guy. I’ll get to that in a...

    Source: Master of Engineering Degrees The Green Fail Take a look at green alternatives from the other side: the downside. Are these growing pains, or signs of a failing movement? Bio-Fuels [A] Princeton study points out, clearing previously untouched land to grow biofuel crops releases long-sequestered carbon into the atmosphere. While planting corn and sugar cane in already tilled land is fine, a problem arises when farmers churn up new land to grow more fuel or the food and feed displaced by biofuel crops. converting rainforests, peatlands, savannas, or grasslands to produce biofuels in Brazil, Southeast Asia and the United...

    Kurt Hofmann is the St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Due to a horrorific traffic accident which left him in a coma for nearly a month, Kurt now gets about in a wheelchair. For someone for whom life has played such a cruel trick, he is remarkably well-adjusted, even-tempered, thoughtful, and full of life. This is especially true when you consider that at an earlier time in his life Kurt served our country as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division. I have had the pleasure to meet Kurt in person more than once and to have an ongoing correspondence with...
