    President Obama was incredulous at the speed of his gun-control agenda’s demise this week. Seemingly still in campaign mode, he posed in the Rose Garden flanked by gun-crime victims and denounced the Senate for rejecting all three points of his grand gun control plan. The Senate gun-control bill isn’t buried yet, but rigor mortis is setting in. Obama swears he’ll bring the fight again. Harry Reid threatened that with the next mass shooting, he’ll put gun control back before the Senate. It’s personal for the president now. Secure in his last term, he was sure he could advance the cause...

    Boy Scouts’ Board Recommends Allowing Gay Scouts But Not Gay Leaders By Michelle Boorstein April 19 The governing board of the Boy Scouts of America on Friday recommended ending the organization’s ban on openly gay Scouts but keeping its prohibition on gay troop leaders. The proposal displeased advocates on both sides and ensured a new flurry of lobbying before the larger national body votes on the matter at its annual meeting next month. The executive committee’s resolution follows a year of shifting signals from the massive youth organization as it tries to finds its place in a nation where views...

    By a margin of 51 to 29, Americans believe having a gun in the house makes the house safer. When the question was asked to those with guns in their houses, the affirmative response jumped to 75. The percentage of Republicans who believe a gun makes the house safer was 71, while among Democrats the percentage was 34. Moreover, the poll found that those who believe a gun in the house makes the house safer "prioritize gun rights over new gun control laws by [a] 2 to 1 [margin]." These responses represent a complete reversal from the same poll taken...
  • Identity of Boston bombers shifts US attitudes to Chechnya

    The revelation that the two brothers suspected to be behind the Boston Marathon attack are ethnic Chechens has led the US establishment to perform a rapid volte-face towards the previously sympathetically-viewed region and cause. Through the two separatist wars fought by Chechen militants in the 1990s, the standard US portrayal of the restive region focused on the David and Goliath scale of the adversaries, the ‘denial’ to Chechens of their right to self-determination, and the abuse of human rights. In the wake of Monday’s attack, a new sinister international image of Chechnya has emerged. “Chechnya region is cauldron of Islamic...

    The almost non existent Obama during all this will suddenly show up and parade all the cops and investigators involved with this terror strike around DC town. The Media will gush about how well Obammy handled this situation, just like he had been there and caught the guy himself! Comparisons will be made between Bush's 9/11 and Obammys. Then the media "analysis" of what is wrong with America and how it turned an innocent little boy into a radical. Ive stocked up on Gin and antacids for the coming gushing media blitz about Obammy and his leadership.

    Sen. John McCain came to the defense of President Barack Obama Thursday, saying he understands the anger and emotion the president displayed when he denounced those who voted against a universal background check amendment as part of a larger Senate gun-control measure. McCain told CNN he sympathized with Obama's description of the vote on Wednesday as a “shameful” day in Washington because lawmakers failed to pass the legislation that grew out of the tragic December massacre of 20 schoolchildren and six educators in Newtown, Conn. “I understand how the president felt very strongly,” McCain said. “He was in Newtown. He...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | April 19, 2013 | Matthew Continetti
    President Barack Obama delivered an impassioned speech Thursday at the memorial service for victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. But that was to be expected. We all know Obama can give a stem-winder. What wasn’t expected was that this would be by far the toughest week of the Obama presidency—the first time I can remember the president being dealt an unequivocal policy defeat. Only the “shellacking” of the 2010 midterm comes close, and even there a case can be made that achieving the decades-old progressive dream of universal health care was worth losing the House of Representatives and a filibuster-proof...
  • Posting use of "bombing suspect" vs. description of "terrorist" on FR

    Just an observation: I searched FR for the word terrorist just now; I only got 12 hits for posts since Monday. This mostly included returns on 'keywords' entered by posters, rather than posted text or comments. I performed the same search for the word "bombing" and stopped counting after 60. Most, if not all, of those are as a result of the use of the term in the headline or excerpt. I post this observation in the wake of remembrance of this administration being lambasted for labeling the Ft. Hood shootings as "workplace violence" vs. a "terrorist attack". A majority...

    Charlie Rogers will serve a week in jail and two years on probation for faking the anti-gay hate crime that stunned Lincoln last summer and captured the country’s attention. Lancaster County Judge Gale Pokorny on Thursday morning also ordered the 34-year-old to do 250 hours of community service for lying to police when she told investigators three men broke into her house, tied her up, carved anti-gay slurs into her skin and tried to light the house on fire. “The evidence is overwhelming that Charlie Rogers’ narrative of July 22, 2012, was an incredible and outrageous lie the second it...
