    ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. - Fear of the unknown about what could happen with gun laws is driving people to gun shops nationwide. "It's just been crazy, absolutely crazy. If I had to guess I'd say between five and ten times the business some days," Frontiersman Gun Shop owner Kory Krause said Tuesday night. .... Krause says anytime shootings like that happen people come to his shop in droves. "In the last 30 days we did, we sold well over 1,000 guns," Krause said.

    ARCADIA (CBSLA.com) — Police on Wednesday were investigating reported break-ins at two Arcadia church buildings over the last two weeks. The first incident occurred overnight Jan. 19-20 at the Church of the Good Shepherd at 400 West Duarte Road. The suspect(s) forced open a door to the church office, ransacked the interior, and threw clergy robes on the ground. A fire extinguisher was discharged in the office and the suspect(s) burned part of a portrait hanging on the office wall before making off with a guitar and other sound equipment. Shortly after 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday, the police department received...

I just want to tell you, I'm so glad you're saying what you're saying today. I was a nervous wreck yesterday that we were gonna lose you as conservatives, and you're just right on today about the immigration thing. My family immigrated here legally in 1955, and some more of them immigrated here in 2007, and we are against any kind of amnesty. The Republicans didn't lose because of Hispanics. The Republicans lost because they're not conservative enough....

    Republicans who support granting amnesty to foreign nationals residing in the United States illegally better answer some questions first. I have previously argued that warm and fuzzy feelings toward the GOP will not grow in minority communities simply because some Republicans accept as lawful what was once lawless. The racial interest groups such as the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) and LULAC have such a stranglehold in these communities that no GOP compromise will break it. Racially polarized voting patterns among blacks and Hispanics are the fruits of their labors over decades. Republicans who think these groups...

    WDTPRS ^ | January 30, 2013 | Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
    From a reader: While doing research I came across something that said that one of the faithful who knowingly receives a Sacrament from a priest without faculties commits a sin. I have always attended SSPX chapels and gone to confession there. But after what I read, I haven’t known what to do. I haven’t gone to Confession in months. I’m also afraid of having a disagreement with my parents. My Dad has very strong opinions about anything not connected with the SSPX. The Church’s law says clearly that if a priest lacks the faculties from proper authority to receive sacramental...

Please call 972-580-2330 before the this gets turned loose on our scouts
  • Obama's 'Uncle Omar' to face deportation hearing by end of year

    President Obama's uncle, Onyango Obama, will face deportation to his native Kenya at an immigration hearing scheduled for Dec. 3, 2013, the Boston Globe reported Wednesday. Onyango Obama had been living in the United States illegally for some 21 years before being arrested in August 2011 after he nearly rammed his SUV into a police car. Obama entered into a plea agreement in March 2012 that acknowledged that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him of drunk driving. A lawyer for "Uncle Omar" told the paper his client hopes that he will eventually be allowed to stay in the United...

In fact, the only news on the immigration front in the Drive-By State-Controlled Media seems to be my interview with Florida Senator Marco Rubio yesterday. And you know why? You know why that's the only immigration news out there? It's because the Drive-Bys seem to think that my praise of Rubio means that I have suddenly decided to support amnesty. I've got the sound bites to prove it. I don't know what...

    THE EXAMINER ^ | JANUARY 30, 2013 | BY: JOE NEWBY
    The liberal New Republic magazine, eager to prove that President Obama participates in skeet shooting even if Jay Carney can't corroborate it, tweeted a picture of Obama appearing to hold a shotgun while at Camp David on Tuesday. Shortly after tweeting it, the New Republic deleted it.The reason? The photo was fake, and came from a parody website called whitehouse.gov1.info.The site clearly says, "not the White House" on the top of the page, with the banner, "parody of whitehouse.gov.""Nope, this is not the official website of The White House. It's a parody of whitehouse.gov," the page says at the bottom....

    From Sister Mary Ann Walsh, for the USCCB:WASHINGTON—The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on January 29 filed amicus briefs in the United States Supreme Court in support of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Proposition 8, both of which  confirm the definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.DOMA was passed by Congress and signed by President Clinton in 1996 and defines marriage for federal and inter-state recognition purposes. Proposition 8 is a state constitutional amendment approved by the citizens of California in 2008. Both laws are challenged because they define marriage exclusively...

    A former Culpeper police officer was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter and other charges Tuesday for killing a 54-year-old homemaker during a routine suspicious-vehicle check that spiraled out of control last February. A Culpeper Circuit Court jury deliberated for about nine hours before returning the verdict in the trial of Daniel Harmon-Wright, who fired seven shots into Patricia Cook’s Jeep Wrangler when she tried to drive away from the then-officer. He faces a maximum of 25 years in prison.

    TEL AVIV (Reuters) - Syria's advanced conventional weapons would represent as much of a threat to Israel as its chemical arms should they fall into the hands of Syrian rebel forces or Hezbollah guerrillas, Israeli sources said on Tuesday. Such concerns suggest that Israel, which has signaled heightened readiness over the last week to react militarily if it thinks Damascus is losing control of its chemical arsenal, could also intervene over Syria's Russian-supplied missiles. "It's clear that unconventional weaponry is a very grave matter. But when you look at the overall, relevant arsenal, Syria has new, advanced (conventional) weapons of...
  • Federal Reserve Money Printing Is The Real Reason Why The Stock Market Is Soaring

    TEC ^ | 01/30/2013 | Michael Snyder
    You can thank the reckless money printing that the Federal Reserve has been doing for the incredible bull market that we have seen in recent months. When the Federal Reserve does more "quantitative easing", it is the financial markets that benefit the most. The Dow and the S&P 500 have both hit levels not seen since 2007 this month, and many analysts are projecting that 2013 will be a banner year for stocks. But is a rising stock market really a sign that the overall economy is rapidly improving as many are suggesting? Of course not. Just because the...
