  • Australia agrees to first national gun amnesty in 20 years

    10/22/2016 9:47:24 AM PDT · by rktman · 30 replies ^ | 10/21/2016 | unknown
    Australia will allow gun owners to hand in illegal firearms without penalty next year as concerns grow over gun crimes involving such weapons, a federal minister said Friday. Australia's police and justice ministers agreed at a meeting to start a nationwide gun amnesty from the middle of 2017, Justice Minister Michael Keenan said. "Australia is world-renowned for the strength of our firearm laws, but illegal firearms do remain a deadly weapon of choice for organized criminals," Keenan told reporters. It will be the first Australia-wide amnesty since a gun buy-back program in 1996 that followed a lone gunman killing 35...
  • Kerry: 'It Pisses Me Off' That Climate Change Got Left Out of Presidential Debates(jerk!)

    secretary of State John Kerry admitted "it pisses me off" that climate change wasn't brought up in the presidential debates. On a panel with Leonardo DiCaprio after a Thursday screening at UN headquarters in New York of the actor's documentary "Before the Flood," Kerry said that "maybe November 8th will produce a capacity for the entire Republican caucus" to see the global-warming film. "It should be required for every single one of them," he added, to applause from the audience. Kerry emphasized that "we're not sitting here chasing some pie-in-the-sky set of possible solutions somewhere down the road."

    Lady Gaga’s new album includes a track paying tribute to Trayvon Martin, the African-American teen whose 2012 death launched th Black Lives Matter movement. MTV News described “Angel Down”, the track in question, as “one of the most moving songs” on the new album. Lady Gaga characterized the song as a protest against “the epidemic of young African-Americans being murdered in this country.” In an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 radio show, Gaga said that the “chaos in America” this year, especially due to the tumultuous political situation, was the source of a lot of her inspiration for...

    UN official Nick Nuttall on why conservative media outlet is being banned: 'I don't see what they are actually reporting as being particularly helpful." Even establishment & warmist CBC was having none of the UN's excuses. CBC to UN: 'Do people have to prove that they're helpful in order to be accredited journalists?' - 'So it does seem that what Mr. Levant is saying is true — that you didn't like his point of view.'

    President Barack Obama is again complaining about conservative media, accusing it of creating candidate Donald Trump. “Trump didn’t come out of nowhere now,” Obama said during a campaign speech in Miami. “For years, Republican politicians and far-right media outlets had just been pumping out all kinds of toxic, crazy stuff.” Obama employed a straw man attack against conservative media, accusing them of starting “the whole birther thing” and calling climate change a “Chinese hoax.” “According to them, I’m powerful enough to cause these hurricanes, and I’m about to steal everybody’s guns in the middle of the night and declare martial...

    Growing speculation that Democrat Hillary Clinton will win the presidential election next month is sparking a mad dash by gun stores to overstock their shelves with out of fear she will move fast to sign gun control executive orders. "We're hearing from a lot of our customers that are concerned, and rightfully so, that their 2nd Amendment rights are going to be infringed by a possible Hillary Clinton presidency. Last month our sales effectively doubled from September of 2015 and we're trending toward another similar result for this month," said Justin Anderson, marketing director for Hyatt Guns of Charlotte, N.C.,...

    During my time as the U.S. Attorney for Maine, particularly during the Bush administration, prosecuting gun crimes — including gun trafficking — was a high priority. A loophole in Maine law allows dangerous people to buy guns from unlicensed sellers without a background check. Since 1998, background checks performed by licensed Maine dealers have kept guns out of the hands of more than 5,500 people who are prohibited by law from them. And while it is true that background checks occur when ordering a gun from a licensed internet dealer as well as at brick-and-mortar gun shops, there are no...

    THE moment in “Sudden Impact” has become legendary. Inspector “Dirty Harry” Callahan (Clint Eastwood) is witness to a robbery and calmly tells the crooks that “we’re not just gonna let you walk out of here.” With a bemused expression, the would-be thief asks, “who’s we sucka?” “Smith and Wesson…and me.” And with that, Mr Eastwood saves the day with his beloved handgun. It is a fitting scene for such an indefatigable supporter of the Second Amendment as Mr Eastwood (he has previously joked that he has “a very strict gun control policy.

    It’s just what you would expect from a newspaper whose editorial board just can’t help taking the wrong side on the issue of gun control. Despite widespread opposition by law enforcement and top state officials, USA Today last week chose to urge the newspaper’s handful of readers in Nevada and Maine to vote “yes” on anti-gun background check initiatives that would only affect the law-abiding, leaving armed criminals to commit whatever violent crimes they choose. The editorial was titled, “Vote 'yes' on gun safety measures: Our view,” with a subhead stating, “Do what weak-kneed members of Congress have refused to...

    With Hillary Clinton reaching the end of a generation-long quest to return the Clintons to the White House — successful or not — some are pondering the First Lady-to-POTUS model in the future. With Michelle Obama hitting the hustings hard for Hillary*, that question obviously applies in the present tense. Don’t worry, former Barack Obama campaign chief tells Hugh Hewitt this morning — he’d bet “everything I own” that the current First Lady wants a non-electoral life when Barack Obama retires in January:

    Dodge’s Challenger Scat Pack Shaker (and no, the scat pack doesn’t mean it leaves stuff behind it on the road) is not only a great muscle car experience, it’s also an interesting lesson in semantics. That’s because it teaches us that the word "standard transmission" no longer applies to a stick shift, at least in this instance. Nope, in this case, the 485 "horsepowerhouse" comes "standard" with an automatic transmission, whereas the great Tremec six speed stick manual transmission is a thousand dollar option. And a good option, too - better than a lot of the nannies for which you...

    Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) office on Monday walked back his suggestion that Senate Republicans could continue to stonewall the confirmation of a ninth Supreme Court justice if Hillary Clinton is elected, insisting he will cast a vote on any nominee the next president puts forward.

    Hillary Clinton, of all people, summed up this debate and this election best. “What kind of country are we going to be?” The Evita of Arkansas is a compulsive liar who has never told the truth in her life. But this time around she was right. This election does not come down to the personalities. It comes down to the kind of country we are going to have. And in the third debate, the one that took a break from the petty haranguing of media lackeys like Lester Holt and Martha Raddatz, the issues took center stage. The core issue...

    "Donald Trump may be the most lied-about presidential candidate in American history." I went over to Las Vegas Trump headquarters near McCarran Airport this morning to hang with the "deplorables" (Trump volunteers) and see what they were thinking on the eve of the Great Debate. It was a relatively—though far from completely—geriatric crowd because this is Vegas, where Southern Californians go to die with their faces in the slot machines (okay, not always). But for a group of oldsters, they were remarkably upbeat and optimistic. And for supposedly low-info "deplorables," remarkably well informed. To begin with, I have some bad...
  • Che Guevara’s Motorcycle Diaries: A Hippie Discovers Communism and Becomes a Monster

    10/19/2016 9:54:58 AM PDT · by rktman · 20 replies ^ | 10/12/2016 | Anoop Verma
    The Motorcycle Diaries is not a “coming-of-age” story as it has been described by a number of commentators. When Che Guevara took off on a motorcycle journey across South America he was not a teenager; he was 23-years-old and therefore already “of age.” In my view, this book has nothing to do with coming-of-age issues, rather it is a “hippie discovers communism” kind of story. The Che Guevara that we meet in The Motorcycle Diaries is a hippie who drifts from place to place without any coherent plan. He is alienated from society. He sees the ill effects of materialism...

    In the dark world of the climate catastrophists, fossil fuel companies are the villains. Having been persuaded by the hugely inaccurate (to the point of being irrelevant) climate change models and operating from an anti-human stance, climate catastrophists are continually attacking oil, natural gas, and coal producers and advocating for renewable energy sources—primarily wind and solar—which they claim to be “clean.” Using tactics such as acknowledging only potential negative side effects of fossil fuel production and consumption, catastrophe scenarios based on grossly inaccurate climate models, and made-up statistics, the catastrophists are trying to influence the media, the public opinion, and...

There’s been more than free speech taking place near the disputed stretch of land where the crews are currently working and previous incidents of violence have had the local authorities on edge. But now they’ve got a new problem to be concerned with. Someone has set fire to several pieces of construction equipment and the damage is in seven figures.

    “The whole aim of practical politics,” Mencken said, “is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” Richard Lindzen, one of the world’s foremost climate scientists, reminded me of Mencken’s saying when I sent him a transcript of Clinton’s panicky speech about climate change at a rally at Miami-Dade College in Miami, FL, October 11. “Climate change is real, it’s urgent, and America can take the lead in the world in addressing it,” she told her mostly young audience. Well, now, yes,...

    A central theme of “Shall Not Be Infringed” is that, despite her efforts to soften her express words, President Hillary Clinton would take steps to do precisely what candidate Hillary Clinton has vowed to do – undermine the fundamental Supreme Court ruling in the 2008 District of Columbia v. Heller opinion, that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms. Second Amendment supporters and opponents alike understand that if you overturn that underpinning of Heller, you open the door for all manner of government actions to not just “chip away” at how an individual chooses to...

    Demographic shifts already have transformed Nevada into a swing state in recent presidential elections and given Democrats an edge in voter registration. They have also made the Silver State the latest testing site for Michael R. Bloomberg’s attempt to pass a law requiring background checks for gun sales between private parties, including those conducted over the Internet. Polling indicates Bloomberg may have bet correctly. The Las Vegas Review-Journal released a poll earlier this month showing 58% of likely registered voters supported Question 1, which would require people like Leal to run background checks on buyers. Three other polls released since...

    After being mentored by the labor leader John L. Lewis, Alinsky founded the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), which trained community organizers around the country. Aided by the liberal millionaire Marshall Field III, Alinsky expanded his mission of inspiring and organizing poor, urban communities across America. "Reveille for Radicals," his 1946 book, became a best-seller. Perhaps even better known is his second book “Rules for Radicals,” which contains an acknowledgement to Lucifer, “who at least won his own kingdom.” During the 1960’s Alinsky set up institutes to train other organizers, and his reputation as an activist grew. In 1969 college student...

    The right to keep and bear arms is a vital element of the liberal order that our Founding Fathers handed down to us. Armed citizens take responsibility for their own security, cultivating the self-reliance and vigorous spirit that are indispensable for genuine self-government. As I argue in a new essay for The Heritage Foundation, the founders understood that those who hold political power almost always will strive to reduce the freedom of those they rule and that many of the ruled always will be tempted to trade their liberty for empty promises of security. The causes of these political phenomena...

    Have you ever seen Michelle Obama dance on TV, realize what a good dancer she is, and wonder why she has such good rhythm? Well, wonder no more. The New York Times has the answer: because she's black. The Times recently invited the most fervent supporters of Obama to write love letters to her, and one of them, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (henceforth "Chimamanda"), said that Michelle Obama has good rhythm precisely because she is black. She had rhythm, a flow and swerve, hands slicing air, body weight moving from foot to foot, a beautiful rhythm. In anything else but a...

His life experience help explains his leadership in opposing Hillary Clinton and supporting Donald Trump. Shachnow is the only Holocaust survivor to become a U.S. General and was a legend in the Green Berets, with whom he served for forty years. Like the perfidious Hillary supporter, the Nazi collaborator George Soros, Major General Sid Shachnow was a child in Nazi-era Europe. Shachnow took the opposite path from Soros.

    In July of 2016, the United States Army Corps of Engineers approved an oil pipeline construction project to transport crude oil via 30-inch-diameter pipes 90 feet below private lands and federal waterways. Dubbed the Dakota Access Pipeline, it originates from the fossil fuel-abundant Bakken shale formation in North Dakota. The DAPL is one of hundreds of underground pipelines safely and unobtrusively providing a service all across the continental USA. It marks an investment and upgrade in infrastructure, as it runs parallel to the Northern Border Pipeline, which set the framework followed by the DAPL, when NPB commenced operations in 1982....

Long gone are the days when the party ran its own candidates for president and vice president. In 2016, it’s all in for the Democrats and Clinton. The party is not just pushing for a win, though, it’s looking for a landslide over Donald Trump that will permit the Democrats to take the House and Senate, too, according to the latest reports at the CPUSA website. “The polls are frightening in light of...

    Two different courts have now heard complaints from both Native American and environmental extremist groups and rejected attempts to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline project’s construction. One might assume that this legal process would be enough to see the various parties satisfied that everyone had been given their rightful hearing in court and, while perhaps unhappy, get us back on track. The reality is far different. The protests are not only continuing, but in some cases bending seriously toward even more incidents of violence. This might be tamped down a bit if there was full government cooperation, but thus far...

The talks on hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, were called the first test of global will since the historic Paris Agreement to cut carbon emissions was reached last year. HFCs are described as the world's fastest-growing climate pollutant and are used in air conditioners and refrigerators. Experts say cutting them is the fastest way to reduce global warming.

    Groups that advocate for women’s rights are lashing out at Donald Trump for allegations of groping women and bragging about sexual assaults. But some of those same groups did not think former President Bill Clinton’s allegations of sexual misconduct nearly two decades ago were disqualifying in the same way. At least three women – Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey – accused Clinton of unwanted sexual advances. Another five, including White House intern Monica Lewinsky, said they had had consensual affairs with him. Clinton was impeached on charges of lying about the Lewinsky affair before a grand jury and...

    Despite constant claims to the contrary, the issue is not whether greenhouse gas emissions affect Earth’s climate. The questions are whether those emissions are overwhelming the powerful natural forces that have always driven climate fluctuations, and whether humans are causing dangerous climate change. No Real-World evidence supports a “dangerous manmade climate change” thesis. In fact, a moderately warmer planet with more atmospheric carbon dioxide would hugely benefit crop, forest and other plant growth, wildlife and humans – with no or minimal climate effect. A colder planet with less CO2 would punish them. And a chillier CO2-deprived planet with less reliable,...

He was recalling a comment about his education that he offered in the documentary “Suffer No Fools.” Williams, who is 80 years old,...
  • A tale of two police ambushes

    Two Boston police officers were gunned down by a suspect armed with an assault rifle and wearing body armor. The officers are in critical condition while 9 other officers were injured in a firefight that resulted in the death of the suspect. The circumstances of the ambush are eerily similar to the murder of two Palm Springs police officers last week. This is the fruit of Black Lives Matter rhetoric which suggests police are terrorists and out to murder black men. Some members of BLM haven't been shy about advocating violence against officers. It is this sort of incendiary rhetoric...

    As far back as the 2016 party conventions in July, Hillary Clinton was blaming the Russians for hacking and releasing embarrassing emails. Now the Obama administration, through an executive agency, has decided to back up her claim. Russia Today noted recently that emails and documents of the DNC were first released by Guccifer 2.0 in June, “but the DNC did not react until WikiLeaks released more files – which Guccifer 2.0 said he supplied to them – on the eve of the Democratic convention in Philadelphia.” “Within hours, the Clinton campaign was accusing Russia and President Vladimir Putin personally of...
  • Now RICO turned against climate-change activists

    It was a year ago when a long list of scientists wrote to the Obama administration urging the federal government to use RICO, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, against global-warming skeptics. They said in a letter addressed to President Obama, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Office of Science and Technology Policy Director John Holdren they “appreciate that you are making aggressive and imaginative use of the limited tools available to you in the face of a recalcitrant Congress.” “One additional tool – recently proposed by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse – is a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act)...
  • Trump Says He Will Use SCOTUS to Save 2nd Amendment from ‘People Like Hillary Clinton’

    During the October 9 presidential debate Donald Trump said he will nominate Supreme Court justices in the mold of the late Antonin Scalia in order to save the Second Amendment from “people like Hillary Clinton.” Trump said: I am looking to appoint judges very much in the mold of Justice Scalia. …People that will respect the constitution of the United States. And I think that this is so important–also, the Second Amendment which is totally under siege by people like Hillary Clinton. He said the judges he puts forward will “respect the Second Amendment and what it stands for, and...
  • If it’s President Hillary… (Stock up!)

    ....despondency will set in for The Deplorables. I said, “If.” But Deplorables, thinking Indies, striving Latinos and African-Americans, and achieving Asians may yet avert the abyss to appear should Hillary Clinton be elected President of the United States. Despicable though many words of Trump can be, they are not as deadly as letting four men die in Benghazi. They are not as detestable as recklessly endangering our national security, as selling our nation’s best interests for bags of silver. Think of it. If anyone wavers, abstains, considers Johnson or Stein, or worst of all, gives in and votes for Hillary,...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan was shouted down by chants of “Trump” at his Fall Fest event Saturday in Wisconsin. Ryan, who kicked off the speech talking about the “elephant in the room,” said that Trump’s banter with Billy Bush before taping an Access Hollywood segment in 2005 was “a troubling situation.” The chants for “Trump” start at about the 6:40 mark in the video below.

    If Democrats and the mainstream think Donald Trump’s supporters are going to abandon him, they’re sorely mistaken. Trump fans rallied outside of Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan on Saturday afternoon. Trump’s social media director Dan Scavino tweeted video of Trump greeting a large group of raucous supporters out on the sidewalk. An enthusiastic Trump waved to the crowd and yelled back a supporter, “I’m with you!” More videos shows the rowdy scene:

    Despite hurricane-force media hype that Donald Trump’s locker room talk over a decade ago precludes him from the presidency, the GOP base is ignoring its leadership and standing by Donald Trump. A poll by Politico shows: A wave of Republican officials abandoned Donald Trump on Saturday, but, at least for now, rank-and-file Republicans are standing by the party's presidential candidate, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll conducted immediately after audio was unearthed Friday that had the GOP nominee crudely bragging about groping women and trying to lure a married woman into an affair. Overall, fewer than four-in-10 voters --...
