    “[The bikers looked for] someone who was going to stand up and call it what it is,” Cox explained. “Radical Islam is one of the biggest talking points of Bikers for Trump. Illegal immigration and one of our sweet spots is getting behind the American veteran. We believe it’s incumbent upon all who understand the value and the sacrifice of our servicemen and women that we are there for them. And we’ve got to change these policies now.”

    Chris Cox surveyed a small park near the U.S. Capitol, his German shepherd by his side. Wearing a Harley-Davidson jacket and a crocodile-skin cowboy hat adorned with the animal’s teeth atop his moppy, curly hair, Cox made for a particularly discordant sight in the heart of federal Washington on a misty weekend morning. But Cox had logistics to sort out, an Inauguration Day demonstration with motorcycle die-hards from across the nation to plan. The 48-year-old chain-saw artist from South Carolina was an early and enthusiastic supporter of President-elect Donald Trump. Now that his guy has won, Cox wants to ensure...

    My war was the Cold War.  I spent a good chunk of my career helping to develop weapons to counter the communist threat.  A chunk of our intelligence effort was spent attempting to determine what was going on inside of the Soviet Union, who might succeed who in the leadership, and what it might mean. Watching the NRA and trying to determine what is happening in its internal politics is much like that.  There are the public pronouncements, that tell us some of what happened, after the fact.  While the NRA elections can have a significant effect on select...

    Is Slick Willie up to his old tricks? Some Twitter comedians seem to think so. This picture above purports to be the former president standing next to the wife and daughter of New York City grocery magnate John Catsimatidis, the owner and CEO of Gristedes Foods, the largest grocery chain in Manhattan, along with other ventures. This Bill Clinton image ran wild across social media, and for whatever reason, the wife was cropped out in some of the retweets. “It was at a recent function with the Catsimatidis family that the buzz-building photo was apparently taken, with the former president...

    U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell now has an endorsement to go with his gun. The National Rifle Association's political action committee announced Friday it has endorsed McConnell in the May 20 Republican primary. McConnell made headlines last month when he appeared at the Conservative Political Action Conference waving a rifle over his head. The rifle was a lifetime achievement award McConnell presented to U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma. In a news release, NRA Political Victory Fund chairman Chris Cox called McConnell a true champion of the Second Amendment. Likely Democratic nominee Alison Lundergan Grimes mocked McConnell, saying he was holding...

    When Mitch McConnell receives the National Rifle Association's "Defender of Freedom" Award in Louisville on Friday, he and the group will be cementing a friendship that McConnell's team thinks could be the difference in next year's Senate race. The NRA, which spent more than $16 million in the 2012 election cycle, plans to be heavily involved in McConnell's re-election effort, the group said Thursday. "We're watching closely," Chris Cox, the NRA's top lobbyist, told the Lexington Herald-Leader. "And we're going to make sure that gun owners in Kentucky understand that they have a champion representing them in the United States...

    With U.S. Park Service employees on furlough, a South Carolina man took it upon himself on Wednesday to mow a lawn near the Lincoln Memorial. And law enforcement almost let him get away with it. Chris Cox, the one-man landscaping crew, calls himself the Memorial Militia. He told a Washington, D.C. radio station that he wanted to spruce up the grass before the weekend, because a 'Million Vet March' event is expected to bring scores of retired servicemen and women to the nation's capital. 'These are our memorials. Do they think that we’re just going to let them go to...

    Oh irony, oh hypocrisy! Joe Scarborough opened today's Morning Joe by singing the praises of NBC's Pete Williams for not jumping onto the story that other news outlets were reporting yesterday that an arrest had been made in the Boston Marathon bombing. Scarborough condemned journalists "far more interested in getting it first than getting it right." But mere minutes later, Scarborough accused former Republican congressman Chris Cox of "lying," in his role as NRA spokesman. Just one problen, as Scarborough had to admit later in the show: he had the wrong Chris Cox. Check back soon for the video.

    Statement from Chris W. Cox on Richard Mourdock's Significant Win in the Indiana U.S. Senate Primary Election Thanks to your votes, Richard Mourdock has won the Republican primary election for U.S. Senate in Indiana defeating 36-year incumbent, Sen. Richard Lugar. Since the 1990s, Sen. Lugar has become notorious for his zealous support of gun control schemes and his fervent anti-gun positions. Your NRA was fully vested in this race with a comprehensive campaign that encompassed thousands of radio and television ads in the months before the today's primary election. This effort also included 600,000 web ads. The media campaign was...

    To the Editor: “I Hunt, but the N.R.A. Isn’t for Me,” by Lily Raff McCaulou (Op-Ed, April 25), is another desperate, but predictable, election-year stunt to try to marginalize National Rifle Association members. The N.R.A. not only represents four million N.R.A. members, but polls also indicate that tens of millions more support us, and a healthy percentage of the population takes our positions into account before casting a vote. Whether liberal or conservative, Republican or Democrat, man or woman, we’ll fight for you because at its core, the Second Amendment isn’t about hunting. It’s about self-defense and freedom. The claim...

    Wayne you sorry bastard, I will never ever forgive you and Chris Cox for trying to save the Democrat's asses in this election. Actually I figured you out when you endorsed Brad Carson over Tom Coburn in Oklahoma's Senate election a few years ago. At the same time you endorsed Arlen Specter over Pat Toomey. I can't believe you now have the gall to try to sell me something. Just bugger off. Sincerely, OKSooner, "Northeastern Oklahoma"

    Nearly 65 years after his famous grandfather was first asked to run as a Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representative from that state’s 12th district, 30-year old Christopher Cox has put his hat in the ring for the seat in New York’s first district on Long Island. Cox, the son of Edward and Tricia Cox, and grandson of the 37th President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, is a fiscal conservative who champions limited government and lower taxes. He also has politics in his blood. And like his grandfather, who was swept into office as part of...

    About nine years ago, Frank Casey went to New York to check out the competition and came away unimpressed with Bernard Madoff. Casey was vice president of marketing for Rampart Investment Management in Boston, one of the country's top firms specializing in investing in options. Madoff, at the time, was earning a reputation on Wall Street as a can't-miss money manager who used options strategies to produce double-digit returns without blemish. But from what Casey saw in 1999, Madoff's system did not make sense. "Either he wasn't doing what he said he was doing, or maybe he was using the...

    WASHINGTON – Staff at the Securities and Exchange Commission failed many times over a decade to fully investigate credible allegations of wrongdoing by money manager Bernard Madoff, the head of the SEC says, calling it a serious agency breakdown. SEC Chairman Christopher Cox said he is "gravely concerned by the apparent multiple failures" by staff to look into claims about Madoff's business and to seek formal authority to investigate.

    In speech after speech, Barack Obama has claimed he would "uphold the Second Amendment." Mr. Obama, of course, is a polished speaker who says "words matter." But records matter more. And while Mr. Obama is short on experience on most issues, he's long on anti-gun votes and even longer on rhetoric. Now's a good time to review both. One of Mr. Obama's first statements on the issue really said it all. During his first run for the Illinois Senate in... --snip-- But in 2005, he voted for a ban on all but the smallest rifle ammunition used for hunting (or...

    SEC Chairman Chris Cox - already in the doghouse with institutional investors over a series of seemingly ineffective bans on short selling - is suffering a loss of confidence among his fellow commissioners. Sources say Cox's recent pitches to his fellow commissioners - who are responsible for implementing the laws that govern the securities industry - to continue shoring up short-selling protections, have fallen on deaf ears. Specifically, the panel has shrugged off his suggestion that they consider ways to help ease the lifting of the short-selling ban - which was not in effect yesterday - with a sort of...

    "The queen had only one way of settling all difficulties, great or small. 'Off with his head!' she said without even looking around." -- "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" WASHINGTON -- Under the pressure of the financial crisis, one presidential candidate is behaving like a flustered rookie playing in a league too high. It is not Barack Obama. Channeling his inner Queen of Hearts, John McCain furiously, and apparently without even looking around at facts, said Chris Cox, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, should be decapitated. This childish reflex provoked The Wall Street Journal to editorialize that "McCain untethered"...
