  • Congress Must Do Its Duty and ZOT "gun control"

    泥on稚 let the lobbyists win should be the rallying call of Barack Obama to congress when he unveils wide-ranging measures aimed at curbing gun violence. Following the shooting of 27 people, including 12 children, at a school in Newton Connecticut at the end of last year, the gun debate has been at the top of most people痴 discussion list and congress has to seriously consider the measures Obama is set to propose similar to those passed in New York on Tuesday. In addressing these measures, congress cannot let powerful lobbying groups such as the NRA sway them with various...

    Conservative talkers Mark 鍍he Hysteric Levin and 吐at ass Michael Savage reignited their longtime feud this week, even though the two share distributors and no longer air during the same time slot. On Monday, Levin made an appearance on the Fox News Channel and called President Barack Obama 鍍he imperial president, leading Savage to label Levin 鍍he Hysteric on his show later that evening. Savage said Levin lazily and uncritically stole the phrase 妬mperial president from liberals of the 1970s. 典he 訴mperial presidency was a line used by liberals to describe Nixon, Savage bellowed. 鄭nd yet, the 践ysteric applies it...

    WASHINGTON (JTA) Jewish leaders representing the Reform, Conservative, Orthodox and Reconstructionist movements are all answering the nation痴 call for ideas to end gun violence. Together, they have held news conferences, written to Vice President Joe Biden痴 gun control task force and sent letters to Congress. On Jan. 15, which would have been Martin Luther King Jr.痴 84th birthday, members of an interfaith alliance known as Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence held a news conference to urge Americans to work together to help curb gun violence. They called for a ban on assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines...

    The Republican Party is desperately in need of some good advice. It needs to return to Ronald Reagan conservatism and give America a two-party system, not a tinny echo of Obama. But our liberal media keep desperately inviting fake Republicans to offer advice to the GOP. They want to create a new Republican Party, one that rejects the principles of the man who championed freedom. Exhibit A: New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The Jan. 14 Washington Post insisted on the front page: "Bloomberg wants change in the GOP." Post reporter Jason Horowitz noted, "America's most prominent and deep pocketed...
  • New Math: President Obama Exaggerates Deficit Savings

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 1/15/2013 | John Merline
    At his press conference this week, President Obama made it seem as though the job of getting the government's deficits under control is nearly done. "The consensus is we need about $4 trillion to stabilize our debt and our deficit," he told reporters, "which means we need about $1.5 trillion more." [snip] But a closer look at the numbers shows that Obama is exaggerating how much deficit reduction he's actually achieved, and is being decidedly Pollyannaish about the nation's still massive long-term budget gap and what will be needed to close it.

    The News Corp. CEO says he "did not mean to be unsympathetic" after a comment on a "fat lady" who fell through a sidewalk draws criticism from Keith Olbermann. News Corp. chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch started off the year fairly quietly on Twitter. But on Tuesday night, he once again drew attention with Twitter posts about gun control and an overweight woman from New York whose fall through a sidewalk drew tabloid coverage. "Hopefully we'll get some real actions on guns tomorrow, not just some stage managed stunt," Murdoch tweeted late Tuesday. "This is federal imperative, not for states."...

    With all the chatter about firearms from the Entertainment World,I was struck by this. Smoking is verboten in TV and movies now. But firearms are not. In one episode of Strike Back, a Brit spy series on CineMax, I counted 23 bodies in 60 minutes. If the Elites are so convinced of their position, let them ban smoking firearms from TV and movies first. My guess is that script writers will have to produce real stories rather than a linked stream of shot'em ups.

    When I attended primary and secondary school -- during the 1940s and '50s -- one didn't hear of the kind of shooting mayhem that's become routine today. Why? It surely wasn't because of strict firearm laws. My replica of the 1902 Sears mail-order catalog shows 35 pages of firearm advertisements. People just sent in their money, and a firearm was shipped. Dr. John Lott, author of "More Guns, Less Crime," reports that until the 1960s, some New York City public high schools had shooting clubs where students competed in citywide shooting contests for university scholarships. They carried their rifles to...

    Chicago rapper Chief Keef was taken into custody on Tuesday (Jan. 15) after a judge ruled that the 17-year-old had violated his probation. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the rapper (real name: Keith Cozart) was handcuffed and taken out of court during a probation hearing on Tuesday. Keef is being held until a sentencing hearing on Thursday. Chief Keef was reportedly sentenced to 18 months probation in January 2012 for pointing a gun at a Chicago police officer. Judge Carl Anthony Walker ruled that Cozart violated his probation, which barred him from coming into contact with any firearms, by visiting...

    We in the media rarely lie to you. But that leaves plenty of room to take things wildly out of context. That's where most big scare stories come from, like recent headlines about GM foods. GM means "genetically modified," which means scientists add genes, altering the plant's DNA, in this case to make the crop resistant to pests. Last week, Poland joined seven other European countries in banning cultivation of GM foods. The politicians acted because headlines screamed about how GM foods caused huge tumors in rats. The pictures of the rats are scary. Some have tumors the size of...

    Fane Lozman, a Marine turned multi-millionaire inventor turned thorn in the side of Riviera Beach officials, has won his long-running legal battle against the city over his floating home. In a 7-2 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday declared that Lozman痴 60-foot, two-story home that was once anchored at the Riviera Beach Marina was not a vessel. As Lozman has argued for years, the court ruled that the city shouldn稚 have been able to seize it using centuries-old maritime law. The decision sets the stage for Lozman to return to court to seek damages against Riviera Beach for destroying...

    Near the end of World War II, Soviet and American soldiers met at the Elbe River in Germany. Lacking a common language, they compared their boots. The Americans wore socks and lace-up boots. The Russians wore something that boggled the minds of their allies from the West: pieces of cloth twirled around their feet and inserted into bulky, knee-high boots. The cloth strips, called portyanki, have been a signature element of the Russian military uniform since the 16th century. On Monday Russia痴 minister of defense issued an order for a militarywide switch to socks.

    The U.S health care system could save over $1 billion dollars a year if they replace current antiretroviral drugs for HIV infection with generic versions of the medications, a risky move that could seriously affect the efficacy of HIV treatment. The implications of such a change was explored in a study published in the January 15 edition of Annals of Internal Medicine.

    Breitbart's Big Hollywood ^ | January 15, 2013
    Actor, activist and "humanist" Matthew Modine says the nation must move past the "archaic" Second Amendment in the current debate over gun violence. Modine, most recently seen in "The Dark Knight Rises" where his character took up arms against an invading force, used the Huffington Post to trash both the late Charlton Heston and the right to bear arms. As a nation we cannot be shackled to an archaic Second Amendment which is being shielded by a minority of Americans that demand the right to use weapons that are continually killing citizens across our country. Weapons that are creating blood...

    Nearly six in 10 Americans want stricter gun laws in the aftermath of last month's deadly school shooting in Connecticut, with majorities favoring a nationwide ban on military-style, rapid-fire weapons and limits on gun violence depicted in video games, movies and TV shows, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. A lopsided 84 percent of adults would like to see the establishment of a federal standard for background checks for people buying guns at gun shows, the poll showed. Three-quarters of Americans said they reacted to the Connecticut massacre with deep anger, while 54 percent said they felt deeply ashamed...
