    The Anti-Defamation League is calling on critics of gun control legislation to stop using references to Hitler and the Nazis, calling such statements “historically inaccurate and offensive,” especially to Holocaust survivors and their families. The ADL cites the following examples in a new press release: The Drudge Report, under the headline “White House Threatens ‘Executive Orders’ on Guns,” featured photos of Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin (Jan. 9). Former Major League pitcher John Rocker wrote on WorldNetDaily.com about what he described as “…the undeniable fact that the Holocaust would never have taken place had the Jewish citizenry of Hitler’s Germany...

    A weak breeze was pushing in from the south, rippling the broad boulevard of water as it caught the midmorning sun. The canal, wide as a football field, ran north to south, slashing an engineered course through the unruly tangle of low-lying bush in Big Cypress National Preserve.

    An article was recently posted on FR about CAGV and their anti-2A agenda and proposed legislation. Amongst other things, their proposed ideas include a AW ban of 1 military style feature, limit mags to 7 rounds. No grandfathering, bans possession and sale. Handguns would require a yearly background check, annual fee and three year safety inspection. I have saved their full proposal here: I had never heard of the group before, and decided to do some research. What I found was shocking, but unsurprising. First, on Dec 14, while the bodies were still warm, they posted the following in their...

    When the Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving night in 2011 – and John Harbaugh beat younger brother, Jim, in the first-ever NFL matchup of coaching brothers – Jack Harbaugh peeked into the Ravens’ locker room after the game. Jack Harbaugh, John and Jim’s father, was impressed by how ecstatic everyone was. There was nothing but celebration and smiling faces. “I thought to myself, we really aren’t needed here,” Jack Harbaugh recalled, speaking to local and national media during a Jan. 24 conference call. He walked across the hallway at the Baltimore football stadium. The mood in...

    The British Prime Minister’s speech on January 23 on the future of relations between his country and the EU has made the front pages of most European newspapers. The idea of a UK exit provokes reactions ranging from outrage to—more frequently—understanding. There are also many newspapers that, like much of the British press, recognize that Cameron has raised legitimate questions that deserve answers at both the national and European levels. …

    It’s fair to say that Jonathan Grahm, known in some circles as “the chocolate prince,” is big in Japan. Years ago, the Los Angeles-based chocolatier won a competition in Tokyo – the only American in a sea of Old World European expertise – and has been racing to keep up with demand there ever since. His refined truffles are available in department stores across Japan, and this year he had 72 Valentine’s Day popup shops.Chocolatier Jonathan Grahm, president of Compartes“In Japan, they thought American chocolate was M&Ms, and it’s nice to shatter those stereotypes,” says Grahm.While other international projects –...

This was evidenced again yesterday as she maneuvered the Benghazi obstacle course with legendary Clintonian skill; managing to take 100% responsibility with 0% blame.

    Chris Matthews on Hillary Clinton's "performance" yesterday during the Benghazi hearing: “Venturing forth in unprotected waters today, she showed how not to be defensive, how not to sweat [and] also how to exhibit humanity and yes, compassion. Even when the witnesses are looking desperately — those people around her — to target her weaknesses. Again, it was a magnificent display of smarts, I think, guts definitely and caring. She looked every bit like a person who could run for president, run well, win big and serve confidently. What a day it’s been for the progressive side of American politics. What...

    We had a critical shipment of machinery due out of Michigan yesterday. The truck line which our vendor booked said the roads were bad and they wouldn't be able to pick up for at least an extra day. Normally, our plant is a beehive of activity and I would have shrugged this off and waited the day. However, since the shipment was critical, I decided to check out the story. Our vendor reported the roads weren't nice, but passable and the truck line was making an excuse due to some arcane union rules.I asked the vendor to fire them on...

But there is absolutely no justifications for this type of senseless violence, none.

America's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: Senator, that's eight days after the attack, 14 days...
  • Lomborg: Electricity prices for German households have increased 61% since 2000 – renewables blamed

    Watts Up With That? ^ | January 23, 2013 | Anthony Watts
    Pursuant to my earlier story today about the article in Spiegel, Bjørn Lomborg writes on his Facebook page:Real German electricity prices for households have increased 61% since 2000. One quarter of household costs now stems directly from renewable energy. Also, the increase is *not* because of increasing production costs (which have actually slightly declined since 1978).The increase is due to dramatically increasing taxes, most noticeably from the Renewable Energy Act (EEG). In 2013 the EEG will increase 50% to 6.28 euro-cent (5.28 cents plus 19% VAT).  In June 2011, Chancellor Angela Merkel famously promised to keep EEG prices stable, but...

    “More than ever, foreign policy is economic policy,” Kerry continued. “The world is competing for resources and global markets. Every day that goes by where America is uncertain about engaging in that arena or unwilling to put our best foot forward and win, unwilling to demonstrate our resolve to lead, is a day in which we weaken our nation itself. Kerry did not explain “economic patriotism,” but it was frequently a term used in the 2012 campaign by both President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden as a means for raising taxes.
