    Via Grabien, skip to 4:45 of the clip below for the key bit. I naively thought we were (mostly) done with “climate of hate” stupidity after the left went all-in on that narrative to try to explain the Gabby Giffords shooting, only to find that Jared Loughner was an incoherent delusional crank. For instance, despite the fact that Dylann Roof’s motives for perpetrating the Charleston massacre were more overtly political than Loughner’s, the aftermath of that attack focused not so much on “inflammatory rhetoric” by the left’s enemies on the right as on the Confederate battle flag specifically, more an...

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado, November 30, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- The media made a rush to judgement in blaming the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting on the pro-life movement, according to Sen. Ted Cruz. Shortly after the shooting, Planned Parenthood blamed the violence outside the abortion facility on "smear campaigns." But Cruz rebutted the notion that Americans who support the right to life are responsible for 57-year-old Robert Lewis Dear's shooting spree, that ended three lives. "The media promptly wants to blame him on the pro-life movement when at this point there’s very little evidence to indicate that," Cruz told The Texas...

    Beneath a rousing flyover of decades-old warbirds, 1,024 newly commissioned second lieutenants graduated Wednesday from the Air Force Academy - saluting the military's past while looking to its future. Air Force Secretary Michael Donley, in one of his last acts as the Air Force's top civilian, implored the cadets to tackle the service's many challenges, a lingering war, fiscal uncertainty and the "scourge" of pervasive sexual assaults during the ceremony at Falcon Stadium. "Each of you is responsible for the character of this Air Force, and its reputation," Donley said. "And I therefore charge you to serve with integrity, and...

    American citizens can be ordered to decrypt their PGP-scrambled hard drives for police to peruse for incriminating files, a federal judge in Colorado ruled today in what could become a precedent-setting case. Judge Robert Blackburn ordered a Peyton, Colo., woman to decrypt the hard drive of a Toshiba laptop computer no later than February 21--or face the consequences including contempt of court. Blackburn, a George W. Bush appointee, ruled that the Fifth Amendment posed no barrier to his decryption order. The Fifth Amendment says that nobody may be "compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself," which...

    DENVER If Colorado is becoming the epicenter of the national debate on gun control, Colorado Springs is proving to be an interesting battleground for the issue. The city is home to Democratic Senate President John Morse, who is proposing Colorado hold manufactures and sellers of military style assault weapons strictly liable for damages caused by the firearms. Its a move some are calling a back-door ban on semi-automatic rifles and others are calling an innovative step toward getting control of the deadly guns. Morse met Thursday in Denver with the president of the National Rifle Association. Across the aisle...
