  • US judge blocks latest Trump travel restrictions to the US from eight countries (This again?)

    10/17/2017 1:17:29 PM PDT · by servo1969 · 40 replies
    A federal judge in Hawaii blocked President Donald Trump's latest bid to impose restrictions on citizens from eight countries entering the United States, which had been set to take effect this week. The open-ended ban, announced last month, targeted people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea, as well as certain government officials from Venezuela. It was the latest version of a policy that had previously targeted six Muslim-majority countries but had been restricted by the Supreme Court. U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson on Tuesday granted Hawaii's request to temporarily block the federal government from enforcing the...

    President Trump and Hillary Clinton are still going at it, and if Trump has his way, they'll square off again in 2020. President Trump tweeted Monday that he hopes "Crooked" Hillary Clinton runs for president again, even as the former secretary of state was telling an Australian media outlet that former FBI Director James Comey gave her the "shiv." "I was recently asked if Crooked Hillary Clinton is going to run in 2020? My answer was, "I hope so!" Trump tweeted.

    The Justice Department on Thursday delivered a “last chance” warning to cities suspected of having "sanctuary" policies to drop their resistance to federal immigration officials. In a notice reviewed by Fox News, the DOJ announced that five jurisdictions “have preliminarily been found to have laws, policies, or practices that may violate” a key federal statute concerning cooperation with federal immigration officials. They are: Chicago, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia and Cook County, Ill. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a written statement that sanctuary cities “adopt the view that the protection of criminal aliens is more important than the...

  • Worker warned hotel before Las Vegas shooter opened fire on crowd

    A maintenance worker said Wednesday he told hotel dispatchers to call police and report a gunman had opened fire with a rifle inside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino hotel before the shooter began firing from his high-rise suite into a crowd at a nearby musical performance. The revised timeline has renewed questions about whether better communication might have allowed police to respond more quickly and take out the gunman before he committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Worker Stephen Schuck says he was checking out a report of a jammed fire door on the 32nd floor...
  • Facebook Censors Pro-Gun Video Mocking Weapon Hysteria

    Facebook censored a pro-gun video of a user mocking the hysteria around how “easy” it allegedly is to convert rifles to automatic fire. The video can be seen here, but can’t be embedded because it “may show graphic violence or gore.” The censored video doesn’t show violence or gore. It shows Facebook user Andy Orlando disassembling a rifle and handgun while joking about converting them to automatic fire. In reality, he made the weapons completely useless. He pulled the slide spring out of his Sig handgun, and removed the bolt carrier group from his AR-15 rifle. The AR-15 is 100...
  • Watch A Man Convert His AR-15 So It Fires ‘70,000 Rounds A Minute’

    Dailycaller.com ^ | 10-5-2017 | David Hookstead
    One man showed millions of people how to convert an AR-15 so that it can fire 70,000 rounds in a minute. All Andy Orlando used was a mil-spec butter knife, and he “converted” a handgun and rifle into automatic weapons in less than five minutes. He got the rifle to a sustained rate of fire of 70,000 rounds per minute, and the handgun to a rate of 2,000 rounds per minute. Absolutely incredible accomplishment. I don’t want to give any of his secrets away, so go ahead and watch the video.

    Las Vegas madman Stephen Paddock set up a camera inside his hotel room to capture his deadly shooting rampage — and other surveillance in the hallway to alert him as cops closed in on him, according to reports. The shooter had at least one lens set up to tape himself as he unleashed hell on thousands of unsuspecting concertgoers several hundred yards below his ritzy casino suite, according to ABC News.
  • Paul Ryan Sides with Hillary: Shelves Bill to Deregulate Suppressors

    Two days after an attacker opened fire on concert goers in Las Vegas, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc) announced he was shelving legislation to deregulate suppressors. -snip- Ryan has now shelved the Hearing Protection Act, which was introduced into Congress on January 9; it is the legislation containing suppressor deregulation. The Act does not legalize suppressors–as they are already legal–rather, it removes the burdensome process for acquiring them and erases the federal tax that must be paid in order to receive permission to posses one. House Speaker Paul Ryan says NRA-backed bill to ease regulations on gun silencers is shelved...

    Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Irma and then Hurricane Maria a category 5 monster hurricane two weeks later. Most of the leadership in Puerto Rico praised and thanked the government for the much needed aid. But the far left San Juan Mayor Caren Yuliz Cruz Soto decided on Friday the best way to help those suffering was to go out on all of the liberal mainstream news outlets and trash President Trump. San Juan Mayor: “I’m mad as hell because my people’s lives are at stake… We are dying, and you (Trump) are killing us with inefficiency” The San...

    President Trump may say he's a defender of gun ownership rights, but with all the gun control pressure he'll be under after Las Vegas, how do we know he'll resist it — especially after the debt limit deal with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, and his flirtation with a deal on DACA? Bottom line: Trump's allies, both inside and out of the White House, are mostly sure he'll resist because he owes too much to the NRA and its supporters — but even some of them aren't 100 percent sure. What they're saying: Since the Las Vegas shooting, we've spoken...

    Country music star John Rich handed over his own firearm to a police officer who used it to defend civilians in a bar during the Las Vegas strip massacre. Rich, who is the star of Big & Rich, explained how it all went down on Fox News. “I had an off-duty police officer, it was a Minneapolis police officer, off-duty, was in my bar hanging out. He came up to me and showed me his badge, and he says, ‘I’m officer – I forget his last name – and I’m [a police] officer and I’m not armed for the first...
  • Based on the Early Reports, the Las Vegas Shooting Is Very, Very Strange

    National Review ^ | 10-2-2017 | DAVID FRENCH
    As virtually everyone has noted from the abundant video footage of the incident, it certainly sounds as if the shooter used either fully-automatic weapons or semi-automatic weapons modified (through, for example, a bump fire stock) to closely simulate automatic fire. Moreover, the police are reporting that he had “more than 10 rifles.” He apparently rented his corner room for days and may have even set up cameras to detect when police were approaching. That’s all strange enough, but it’s even more unusual when you consider that his own family apparently didn’t know that he maintained a stockpile of guns.[snip]Put all...

    The woman, identified as 46-year-old Anila Daulatzai from Baltimore, had complained about two dogs on her flight from Baltimore-Washington International Airport to Los Angeles. She said she was deathly allergic, but when crew informed her they couldn’t remove the dogs, one of which was a service dog, she was told to leave the plane. That’s when things went south. After the woman couldn’t show medical papers about her allergies and refused to leave the plane, law enforcement arrived to remove her, Southwest said in a statement. She’s since been charged with disorderly conduct, failure to obey a reasonable and lawful...

  • Are food allergies an analogy to breaking the NFL habit?

    I know. I know. It's one of my stranger analogies, but stick with me on this one. Those who have developed food allergies know what it feels like. You have some food you particularly like, and have been enjoying for years. Lately, though, you've been noticing that, while that food makes your mouth happy, it makes the rest of you unhappy.For a while, you're in denial. "I probably had a stomach flu." "It was just a bad batch." "It's a coincidence." Those of you with allergies know precisely what I mean.Then one day, it dawns on you that every single...

    Trump Derangement Syndrome at the Emmy Awards revealed that in Hollywood, as in the USSR or North Korea, it's dangerous to deviate from the party line. (A very surprised Dolly Parton, who didn't expect her Nine to Five co-stars to go all "Cultural Revolution" on her at the Emmy Awards.)I didn't watch the Emmy Awards. In fact, I haven't watched the Emmy Awards in at least 20 years.I don't watch the Emmy Awards in part because, with a very few exceptions, I don't watch television. Those exceptions are: Dancing With The Stars (I know, I know, but I do love...
  • The Washington Post Gets It Wrong On New Gun Legislation

    Law-abiding gun owners are tired of reading articles from elitist writers who want nothing more than to eliminate gun ownership in America. The latest example was Dana Milbank’s Sept. 11 piece, “The NRA’s idea of recreation: Assault rifles, armor-piercing bullets and silencers.”Milbank’s article, about a new piece of pro-sportsmen legislation, the SHARE Act, is littered with misleading and incorrect terminology to describe even the most basic firearms classifications, revealing how little he actually knows about guns. His contempt for hunters, NRA members and gun owners in general is made clear through his condescending tone and misrepresentation of the facts.The piece...

    Milo Yiannopoulos- Berkeley “Free Speech Week,” an event organized by student group the Berkeley Patriot and underwritten by MILO Inc., will occur as scheduled, running from September 24 to September 27 on the campus of UC Berkeley, despite attempts by the university to use bureaucratic maneuvers and strategic media leaks to disrupt the event and dissuade headline speakers from attending. The paperwork was filed on deadline, and MILO, Inc. transferred the required $65,758.76 to UC Berkeley to arrive at 8 AM ET Monday. Nevertheless, the University has not yet indicated it will grant access to Wheeler and Zellerbach. This move...
