  • Delta, United Airlines to end discounted rates for NRA members

    Two airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines, announced Saturday that they are ending discounted-rate deals with the National Rifle Association, adding to a growing list of companies distancing themselves from the gun-rights lobby group as it fights a push for stricter gun control measures after a deadly high school shooting on Valentine's Day in Parkland, Fla.

    Two cowardly airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines, announced Saturday that they are ending discounted-rate deals with the National Rifle Association.

    Apparently the airlines have managers with disordered minds punishing the innocent so they can wallow in their ignorance while catering to low information gun control leftists.

    It makes me concerned about flying with airlines that feature managers that are supposed to make decisions about airline safety. Demonstrating shallow, unjustified, and hasty decisions is NOT a characteristic of management responsible for the health and safety of millions of airline passengers.

    A lawyer for Susan Rice said in a letter Friday that the former national security adviser sent herself an email on her last day in office documenting...

    Looks like a typical "CYA" memo to help "muddy the water" should the hoped-for result not turn out the way she wanted.

    It did not. The dominoes are starting to fall.

  • MS-13: Just Trump's Boogeyman?

    His embellishments aside, it’s fair to question whether MS-13 is simply a Trump boogeyman, a gang hyped beyond its capability being worked as a clapper against the president’s bell of nationalism and anti-immigration fear-mongering.

    Does this writer have a clue? What evidence is offered to support the assertion that MS-13 is nothing or being greatly hyped? How many hundreds or thousands of bodies will satisfy this writer?

    The short answer is none. The writer lives in a fantasy world along with all the other progressives and Democrats.

  • #BoycottNRA: Enterprise car rentals, Omaha bank sever gun lobby ties as boycott movement gains steam

    Two major companies, Enterprise Holdings Inc. and First National Bank of Omaha ended co-branding partnerships with the National Rifle Association Thursday as a #BoycottNRA social media movement picked up steam.

    Are Enterprise Holdings Inc. and First National Bank of Omaha also going to boycott NRA members, that is, all people who support the NRA?

    Millions support the NRA because they represent training, common sense, responsible, and competent gun ownership, that includes our military, our police, and others who guard their companies and banks.

    Do these companies plan to get rid of any of their employees who own guns and NRA membership? Do these companies plan to boycott customers who are also NRA members (like me)? Why not?

    Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy warned Wednesday that mass shootings are being planned all over the country, and that everyone is likely to be affected as the tragic incidents continue to proliferate.

    Is this a call to "action" by Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy? Why would he say something like that?

    Is he hoping that our country suddenly has mass shootings, so he can say "I told you so?"

    Smith said, “The president spent the weekend defending himself, misrepresenting the truth and attacking others from his phone in Florida. The president attacked the Justice Department, the FBI, and his National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster. He attacked Congressman Adam Schiff, Democrats and the DNC. He attacked Hillary Clinton, President Obama, the previous Congress and the news media before going after Oprah Winfrey.”

    If Shep Smith were a real responsible journalist, he would notice that every single attack made by President Trump is backed up by a slew of evidence and facts.

    In contrast, the Russian thing is a "nothing burger."

    Why does Fox have incompetent, biased reporting? Are they trying to copy CNN? I do not think that CNN is doing that well.

  • Grassley, Dems step up battle over judicial nominees

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the committee’s top Democrat, said that Grassley’s decision to hold nomination hearings and approve two nominees who lacked a blue slip from a home-state senator marked a landmark change in committee tradition.

    Home-state senators have been abusing their opportunity to nominate qualified candidates. They have been slow walking and stopping nominees on strictly partisan grounds. That egregious behavior must stop or be bypassed.

    Hate of the POTUS is not an acceptable objection to the approval of a nominee.

    Dems thought that printing paper would bring economic sweet spot as the level of taxation crept up, except Republicans came in as the white knight for those with jobs and business.

    There were no "crumbs" for the working people as a result of printing more money.

    Only the rich got richer as a result of Obama's quantitative easing.

    Did you know that the Russian trolling during the 2016 election was so horrible and transformative that it compares to...the attack upon Pearl Harbor? While you chuckle over that observation, keep in mind that the absurd comparison was made by Karen Tumulty of the Washington Post.

    A "tempest in a teapot" will NEVER be the same as Pearl Harbor, or 9/11 for that matter!

    Karen Tumulty may be getting carried away with her hate for our President, Donald Trump.

    The hate filled MSM is self-destructing in their own excrement, before our very eyes!

    Students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., expressed astonishment that President Trump would use the tragedy they experienced last week to push back on the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

    Low information leftist students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., are demonstrating their ignorance of the facts (and inability to use common sense) relating to the tragedy at their school.

    Their hate will destroy them, plus it does not bode well for the future of our country.

    Are the intelligent and informed students being held back or ignored by our hateful, corrupt and incompetent media?

  • Top GOP donor: 'I will not write another check' until candidates support assault weapons ban

    In an email to half a dozen Republican leaders on Saturday, Florida-based real estate developer Al Hoffman Jr. decried the rash of mass shootings that has roiled the U.S. for years, and demanded that GOP politicians take action.

    I would hope that Florida-based real estate developer Al Hoffman Jr. would take a deep breath and think through what he is saying. Taking away guns will not solve the mental health issue, or the failure of authorities to take appropriate action.

    The psycho perpetrator was on drugs; he should have been in a mental institution. But wait, liberal judges, Democrats, and the ACLU closed mental institutions many years ago, and put the inmates on the street. They kept the perp on the street even after authorities visited his home 39 times.

    The Dems think that they can solve school killings by taking away your guns, while ignoring the role of drugs and the lack of proper mental health treatment?

    With the departure of MassResistance from the exhibitor’s hall roster, no exclusively pro-family, pro-marriage groups were to be present at CPAC.

    And they still have this sh*t on in the airports.

    Why are airline passengers forced to watch CNN at airports? Are airports not under the control of the FAA?

    CNN has been left biased for a long, long time, since they were known as the "Clinton News Network." Now they are the "Communist News Network."

    CNN has removed all pretense at being objective, and just foment hate for President Trump.

    Get them out of our airports!

  • Opinion: After the Parkland shooting, let's call GOP hypocrisy on guns what it really is: complicity

    On January 20, 2018, President Donald Trump's campaign released a television ad titled “Complicit” that blamed Democrats for murders committed by illegal immigrants.

    Democrats are to blame for murders committed by school shooters.

    All of the perps in recent school shootings were on meds; they should have been committed to mental institutions. Liberal judges, Democrats, and the ACLU closed the institutions and put the inmates on the street.

    The blind and hysterical Dems think that they can solve this school killings by taking away your guns. Can the Democrats actually connect the dots, or are they themselves taking too many drugs?

    But according to a scientific study published this month, the Southeast’s colder winter weather is part of an isolated trend, linked to a more wavy pattern in the jet stream that crosses North America.

    Could it be that the more wavy pattern in the jet stream that crosses North America is being triggered by global cooling?

    Could it be related to our Sun getting cooler?

    The self-dubbed “Common Sense Caucus” of senators late Wednesday circulated legislation that would fulfill Trump’s calls to grant legal status to 1.8 million young immigrants and would appropriate $25 billion for southern border security construction projects over the next decade — not immediately, as Trump wants.

    How is this different from the 1986 amnesty? It is full of promises that, sometime in the future, we will secure our borders.

    Amnesty was granted in 1986 with promises that our borders would be secured; they lied; the borders were NOT secured. The "Common Sense Caucus" has NO common sense!

    The day after the Florida school shooting, Mika Brzezinski has warned guests who have been booked to appear on Morning Joe to "go back home" if they believe this is not the time to talk about gun control.

    This is the time to talk about preventive detention of troubled and dangerous youths on drugs.

    What is the role of the ACLU in keeping dangerous people on the streets? Why did not local authorities take action?

    We do not want to hear the old "gun control" argument. The gun is an inanimate object. What are the details of the gun(s) used for this crime? How did he get his hands on guns if he was already labeled as dangerous and unstable?

    Is Morning Joe competent to intelligently discuss such matters, or are they too deep in hate for Trump and hysterical about guns?

    An Ohio court will decide the fate of a transgender teen who is in what the judge describes as a "gut-wrenching situation."

  • The case for erasing every last penny of student debt

    Student debt is now the most common form of troubled debt, with about 11 percent of them 90 days or more delinquent.

    Student debt is more a signal of lack of personal responsibility, than hapless, helpless students.

    Perhaps college costs are the next bubble that needs to be popped, so the cost of education is not ridiculously high.

    Why should taxpayer dollars be spent to help people who make bad financial decisions? Are these graduates too brainwashed to realize that they have been "taken" by the universities and their attendant high costs?

    Are they the "snowflakes" who cannot connect the dots, but do know how to play the blame game?
