  • Proof Obama is lying about guns (...president's actions create chaos but don't save lives)

    Barack Obama says he wants to ban more classifications of firearms because he wants to keep Americans safe from gun crime. Do you believe it? I don’t. I don’t believe Obama cares a whit about the safety of the American people – and I think I can prove it. First of all, the statistics Obama ignores demonstrate conclusively that firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens actually saves lives. It’s not even a close call. This fact is illustrated further by the fact that the urban areas that have outright banned firearms possession have become virtual shooting galleries, with more...

    Today, DFL Representative Debra Hilstrom and a bipartisan coalition of legislators and sheriffs introduced a new bill which will address the very real issue of keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and the dangerously mentally ill, without infringing on the rights of law abiding Minnesota gun owners. Republican Rep. Tony Cornish, the House's leader on gun rights, joined Hilstrom at the press conference to speak in favor of the bill.

    The EU’s current institutional set-up resembles a “Frankenstein” monster because there is no democratic separation of powers, European Parliament chief Martin Schulz said Monday (4 March) during a debate in Hamburg on sovereignty transfers to Brussels. “National sovereignty in Europe is based on a model of separation of powers: we have a government that can be voted down by a parliament and an independent judiciary overseeing that rules are respected,” Schulz said. He added: “What we are doing now is that we are taking bits and pieces of this framework and transferring them to the EU level, but without also...

    TALLAHASSEE -- A bill targeting gun shows and personal sales has been filed in Florida. State democrats unveiled the legislation today which would require background checks on *all gun sales. But the bill is coming under fire. There's a showdown forming at the state capitol. Today at high noon Florida democrats took the first shot. A bill requiring background checks before all gun sales. The NRA says the real intention behind universal background checks is to eliminate the 2nd Amendment. Rep. Lori Berman / D- "If you want to obtain a gun in Florida you need to undergo a background...

    There's only way to look at this folks. WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder's stunning admission that it was difficult to prosecute large banks because of the potential economic impact may be a turning point of the drive to break them up. It's not stunning at all. It is, however, an admission of what we have known for years. Now the pants of "Nobody committed any crimes" have in fact been artfully dropped to the floor and what's in our face is the ugly anatomical truth that crimes were committed and intentionally ignored. That is something that Congress and the...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Rand Paul, ladies and gentlemen, is actually doing a filibuster as we speak. He's doing a talking filibuster. He's actually on the floor of the Senate trying to shut it down. This is over the nomination of John Brennan to be the next CIA director. What Rand Paul is upset about is the domestic drone program that everybody in the regime says is perfectly fine. Obama and Eric Holder say, "Yeah, we're perfectly content with a program of having drones in the air domestically." Eric Holder, the attorney general, refused to say that Americans cannot be killed...

    The Department of Homeland Security has an unmanned drone fleet with technology that can root out civilians who are carrying guns, government documents show. “I am very concerned that this technology will be used against law-abiding American firearms owners,” said Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, in a Breitbart report. “This could violate Fourth Amendment rights as well as Second Amendment rights.” The Predator B drone fleet has also been designed to track cell-phone signals, Breitbart reports. The information about the fleet came to light via a Freedom of Information request from the Electronic Privacy Information Center, Breitbart...

    DENVER — Much of the anger felt by those who oppose the seven Democratic gun control bills moving through the state Senate this week is now being directed at Sen. Evie Hudak, who questioned a rape victim’s assertion Monday that a concealed weapon might have staved off her attacker. Hudak, who acknowledged her insensitivity on Tuesday and personally apologized to that victim, Amanda Collins, is suddenly a symbol of what many conservatives are terming a new “War on Women”, arguing that more restrictive gun laws will leave women more vulnerable to violent attacks. In fighting that supposed war against women,...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: There are a couple of polls out here today, and they greatly conflict with each other. They are about Obama's approval numbers. Now, the first poll is from Reuters. It's a Reuters/Ipsos poll, and according to this poll, approval for Obama has crashed. He's down to 43% approval in the Reuters poll. The other poll that's out is from Rasmussen. The Rasmussen poll has Obama's approval at above 50%. Now, there was another poll. It was Gallup earlier this week that had Obama's approval number at 48%. It was the first time he was under 50% in...

    NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — There is no doubt who is responsible for the Newtown school massacre. The shooter is dead and the prosecutor handling the case has said he does not expect any charges. Yet authorities are continuing to keep search warrants and police records secret. Media outlets have pressed for the release of more records, which could shed light on a crime that has revived the national debate over gun control and could change the way guns are regulated. The massacre has led to proposals for universal background checks on gun buyers and bans on assault weapons and...

    Following the prayer in the Moscow Cathedral Mosque, during his visit in February 2010, Hamas leader Khaled Masha’al admitted that in the Council of Muftis of Russia it felt like home. While the statement probably pleased the Russian leaders, in reality these words should have alerted them. Whether it was Mashaal’s intention or not, this acknowledgment could be perceived as a prophecy: the dawn of Islamic fundamentalism which illuminates the future of the northern superpower. Islam is the second largest religious denomination in Russia after the Orthodox Church. According to the official census there are about 15 million Muslims (10...

    If you want to look at how Obama see’s things, take a look at his judicial nominees. We know he has no use for the Constitution, and particularly the Second Amendment. We also know that the separation of powers means nothing to her, and the checks and balances are seen as an archaic obstacles to the power of the state. Given those facts, the nomination of Caitlin Halligan does not come as a surprise… But his most recent nomination is beyond the pale.Obama Pushing “Most Anti-Second Amendment Nominee” in Recent History Senators on Capitol Hill [tell us that] Harry Reid...

    Gert Jordaan, founder of UFO Research of SA, said that between February 21 and February 27 many people reported seeing bright orange lights and flames in the sky. He said that while some sightings could be attributed to meteor showers, others could have a more interesting explanation. "Though meteors do glow orange, some of the sightings reported radical change in direction and speed. Some objects even remained stationary for five minutes or so. There might be some UFO phenomena occurring in areas around Cape Town," he told the Times newspaper. ... The report follows the launching of a rescue operation...
  • Childish Regime Shuts Down White House Tours to Punish You

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: So now we got the White House tours shut down. Folks, that's just flat-out irresponsible. No need for that. How many people do you think are in Washington this week who have planned vacations for maybe a year in advance? You know, it's March. Sometimes the cherry blossoms are out in Washington. Some times it's warm. People schedule trips to the nation's capital year round. How many people there do you think have arranged tours to the White House via their congressman or through the White House tour office, and now they're shut down? And if you...

    There is already a bumper sticker out there that says “Barack 2012, Michelle 2016,” spotted in the nation’s capital in the last month. In that mindset, consider new numbers just released: a Harris Poll gauging first lady Michelle Obama’s popular appeal among Americans, including a rating of her “job” performance and yes, a comparison with her hubby. The numbers: 71 percent of Americans say Michelle Obama was a positive factor in President Obama’s re-election; 54 percent of Republicans and 89 percent of Democrats agree. 70 percent of Americans overall say Mrs. Obama has a positive influence on the president’s decisions;...

    Signaling that Russia hopes to maintain warm ties with Venezuela after Hugo Chavez's death, President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday called for the two countries to follow a path toward even stronger ties and praised the late president as “a close friend of Russia.” Putin has sent a telegram to Caracas expressing his “deepest condolences” to Vice President Nicolas Madura and the Venezuelan people, the Kremlin said. “Vladimir Putin praised the Venezuelan leader's personal efforts to lay a solid foundation for a Russian-Venezuelan partnership that has developed strong political ties and led to large-scale humanitarian and development projects,” the Kremlin said...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I sit here and I think it would be the easiest thing in the world today to be a Republican. I think this is one of the easiest things to oppose. This would be one of the easiest presidents to identify. But there doesn't seem to be any desire on the part of any Republican anywhere to do it. Instead, they're sitting around wringing their hands over why they lost the election, and they're all focusing on the wrong things. And they're all prisoners to the daily media narrative. This is a fascinating piece here about Twitter....

    At the same time that rising Republican Senate stars Rand Paul and Ted Cruz were making history with a filibuster Chris Matthews, on Wednesday's Hardball, insisted Paul and Cruz must be heroes to hate groups. During a segment on the liberal Southern Poverty Law Center's new study about an increase of anti-government hate groups, Matthews demanded which politicians they supported: "Who do they root for?! They don't root for Rand Paul? Pat Buchanan? I mean who? They must like this new guy Ted Cruz. They must love Ted Cruz, c'mon!"
