    As Election Day 2010 approaches, there is much to be found in the media about the National Rifle Association and its political grades and endorsements. There's another, albeit smaller organization out there working hard to bring us candidate evaluations that gun activists are well aware of, Gun Owners of America, designated "The only no-compromise gun lobby in Washington" by Rep. Ron Paul. Because GOA takes a somewhat different approach that can yield different performance assessments, tensions sometimes arise between its supporters and NRA's, along with often acrimonious, even bitter debate. And because this election has such potential to impact gun...

    What albums might Leon Trotsky have done some head-banging to if Josef Stalin hadn’t sent an assassin to shove an icepick through his skull? Answer: the 10 Neo-Communist (and some flat-out communist) titles on our list. We count them down from the more benign Democrat-supporters to outright totalitarian radicals. Included in this collection are alternative, rock, rap, folk, and hip-hop titles. We’ve also done our best not to be too obvious with our choices — you won’t find Greenday’s “American Idiot” on this list, for example. We also made the choice to select albums that despite being nauseating in their...
  • 8 Biblical Verses That Leftists Have Gotten Completely Wrong

    10/29/2010 8:59:43 AM PDT · by Michael van der Galien · 26 replies
    Politicians of all stripes endeavor to invoke the Bible for many reasons. Some try to use God’s Word to score points with the Christian or Jewish communities. Others employ a Biblical analogy or story to drive a point home. A few even share impactful passages out of sincere faith. However, it appears that most politicians — on the Left as well as on the Right — use the Old and New Testaments to prove or further their agenda. One of the most insidious and troubling areas in which politicians have co-opted scripture is the “social justice” movement. Since the 19th...

    Could the Democrats in Tucson get any more demented? We’ve already documented how they are busing in SEIU union thugs, trying to commit voter registration fraud, and trying to intimidate Republican candidates at their own events… but now they’re resorting to actual physical violence!? At the first debate at the University of Arizona between Democrat Gabrielle Giffords and Republican Jesse Kelly, a fictitious group called Republicorp showed up trying to convince people that the Republican Party is bought off by Wall St (despite the FACT that most contributions from Wall St went to Obama). Well, it appears that these may...

    Today's column concludes a three-part series (see part 1 and part 2, if you haven't already) critiquing "Guns, Democracy, and the Insurrectionist Idea," of which Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) is co-author. The focus today will be on the main part of the book's suggested strategy for dealing with us "Insurrectionists" (defined in the book as those of us who believe an armed citizenry is the final obstacle in a would-be tyrant's path). To the book: Isolate the Insurrectionists by embracing the self-defenders and the sporting gun owners. The fact remains that most...

    The author sounds vindictive and mean-spirited who the reader feels has lost his way in life. Everyone knows that boys don’t kiss and tell, and here we have this clod barking as if he is a Philadelphia Phillies fan heckling the San Francisco Giant’s right fielder. As readers we become simultaneously angry about his callous disparagement of women and sorry for whatever is torturing his psyche. You can read an avalanche of reactions to the Christine O’Donnell one night stand claims here and here and satirically here. So who is this fellow who wrote it? That is a less interesting...

    10/27/2010 4:42:36 AM PDT · by Desperado67 · 10 replies ^ | 10/27/10 | Rob Binsrick
    Baron Hill has represented the 9th District of Indiana in the U.S. House of Representatives for 10 of the last 12 years. During that time, Hill has been a part of the Blue Dog Coalition, a group of Democrats who consider themselves to be moderate-to-conservatives on many issues, especially fiscal ones. While Hill may have had Blue Dog credentials in the past, over the last couple of years he has revealed his true colors. Along with the liberal wing of the Democratic Party, Hill has voted for the failed stimulus package, the healthcare reform act and the cap-and-trade energy bill....

    Full story in two parts: Part 1Part 2...“when you say ‘Muslims did this, do you mean Muhammed Ali?’” No, he means “Muslims” those “Muslims” the ones who did it. But what of Muhammed Ali? To my knowledge he never hurt anyone (outside of the ring) but the fact is that due to his association with the Nation of Islam, when Malcolm X was murdered Muhammed Ali did, in fact, state that anyone who comes against the prophet deserves death. Likewise, due to his involvement with Islam, Cat Stevens aka Yusuf Islam supported the attempts to murder Salman Rushdie for writing,...

    ...A man that had been verbally harassing pro-lifers outside a late-term abortion mill in Albuquerque for days, escalated his abuse to violence yesterday by driving his large paneled delivery truck up on a curb and striking the large pro-life sign being held by Bud Shaver. Shaver was unhurt in the incident but his sign showing an image of an aborted baby was damaged. Shaver jumped into the Truth Truck and was able to get the license plate number of the vehicle that hit him. He reported the incident to the police. "We just explained our concern [to the police] that...

    (this was posted in a previous thread about America dying, with no reply from men, as has become too sadly familiar) ---------------------------------------------------- When a country lifts up a man like Bill Clinton that defiled the Oval Office as none has ever done, the media throws their arms around him, he is not held accountable nor has HE EVER OFFERED THE MUCH TORTURED APOLOGY SO MANY CONSERVATIVES ARE ASKED TO DO, FOR MINOR SLIPS OF THE TONGUE....

    In the most predictable act in an otherwise completely unpredictable election cycle, the liberal editors of Louisville's The Courier-Journal (CJ) newspaper have decided to "enthusiastically endorse" (to use their words) Jack Conway for election to the U.S. Senate. Conway is running against Republican candidate Dr. Rand Paul for the Senate seat currently held by the retiring Jim Bunning. The CJ editors concluded their enthusiastic endorsement for Conway with these closing statements: "Kentuckians should not gamble on a candidate far out of the political mainstream. The should send Mr. Conway to the Senate." From those statements it is clear that the...

    WMD Found in Iraq According to the latest batch of Wikileak documents. In particular, coalition troops kept coming across numerous artillery shells filled with mustard gas. Remember the terms of Section 8 of UN resolution 687 that ended the first Gulf War: Iraq shall unconditionally accept the destruction, removal, or rendering harmless, under international supervision, of: (a) All chemical and biological weapons and all stocks of agents and all related subsystems and components and all research, development, support and manufacturing facilities Thus the instance of a single chemical weapon in Iraq violates the terms that ended the Gulf War, and...

    *snip* This past week, Rep. Jim Moran, the longtime Democrat incumbent in Virginia’s 8th district, unleashed a firestorm of controversy when he disparaged the service of millions of troops and veterans. Moran diminished the value of their service by implying that the sacrifices and service our troops give while on active duty did not count as “public service” in the same way that elected officials are public servants. The statement shocked and offended millions of veterans around the country as well as patriots who all agree that military service is a more pure and essential public service than being a...
