    (CNN)Ted Nugent compared multiple groups he opposes to "rabid coyotes" on Friday, adding that you "keep your gun handy" to shoot them on sight. Nugent, a musician and National Rifle Association board member, made the remarks during a seemingly casual -- yet fiery -- interview with Alex Jones. During the interview, Jones -- a right-wing conspiracy theorist -- said he wanted to know why liberals hate America and "love communism." "Don't ask why," Nugent said. "Just know that evil, dishonesty and scam artists have always been around and that right now they're liberal, they're Democrat, they're RINOs, they're Hollywood, they're...

    “The level of ignorance goes beyond stupidity,” Nugent said on Newsmax’s “The Joe Pags Show” on Friday, reacting to the attacks by the students on law-abiding gun owners and the National Rifle Association, where Nugent sits as a member of the board of directors. “Again, the National Rifle Association are a bunch of American families who have a voice to stand up for our God-given Constitutionally-guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. We have no blood on our hands. No NRA member have ever been involved in any mass shootings at all, in fact the National Rifle Association is the lone organization...

    Ted Nugent went on a conservative radio show Friday evening and lobbed another round of insults at the most outspoken survivors of the Valentine’s Day mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. During his guest spot on The Joe Pags Show, hosted by Joe Pagliarulo and syndicated from WOAI in San Antonio, Texas, the NRA board member was asked why the “media” had turned on the NRA. “The level of ignorance goes beyond stupidity. Again, the National Rifle Association are a bunch of American families who have a voice to stand up for our God-given constitutionally...

    “I really feel sorry for them because it’s not only ignorant and dangerously stupid, but it’s soulless,” rocker says Ted Nugent, the sometime classic rocker and current NRA board member, is speaking out about the new generation of gun reform advocates: the “pathetic” teenage “liars” who survived the deadly massacre last month at a high school in Parkland, Florida. “These poor children, I’m afraid to say this and it hurts me to say this, but the evidence is irrefutable, they have no soul,” he said Friday on Newsmax’s “The Joe Pags Show.” “The dumbing down of America is manifested in...
  • Sen. Tammy Duckworth, who lost her legs in Iraq, calls Trump ‘a five-deferment draft dodger’

    01/22/2018 11:06:22 PM PST · by Eleutheria5 · 82 replies
    In a Senate-floor speech Saturday, Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) blasted President Trump as a “five-deferment draft dodger” and accused him of trying to bait North Korea into a war, putting both the military and the national security of the United States at risk. It was a moment of fire for Duckworth, a veteran who lost both of her legs in 2004 while serving in the Iraq War, and who has advocated for military and disability issues since she was elected to national public office in 2012. Duckworth said Saturday her speech was prompted by a tweet Trump had posted Saturday...

    President Barack Obama, who keeps a pair of boxing gloves worn by Muhammad Ali in his private study off the Oval Office, said Saturday that Ali “shook up the world and the world is better for it.” Obama likened Ali, who died Friday, to other civil rights leaders of his era, and said the boxer stood with Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela in fighting for what was right. […] “He wasn’t perfect, of course. For all his magic in the ring, he could be careless with his words, and full of contradictions as his faith evolved,” Obama said...

    With all the controversy stemming from the man who asked Donald Trump about the Muslim problem and President Obama, Ted Nugent decided to make it clear he has doubts about the president’s faith too. Nugent sent out a few tweets today railing against the government, Obama, and Planned Parenthood that culminated in him very much doubting that Obama’s a Christian.

    The Liberal Agenda: On the heels of Sunday's "People's Climate Change" march came Monday's "Flood Wall Street" demonstration, starring limousine liberal darling Naomi Klein. So who is Klein, and why is she such a hot ticket? Not since the 1980s, when Daniel Ortega, Nicaragua's Marxist dictator, bought $3,000 sunglasses on Fifth Avenue during a U.N. General Assembly have we seen such a confluence of free-market hate and consumer hog-wallow. But the leaders of the Climate Change March and the "Flood Wall Street" Occupy reunion put left-wing hypocrisy on full display this week in their loathing for capitalism and all-too-eager enjoyment...

    Jesse Winchester, an American singer-songwriter who moved to Montreal in the 1960s to dodge the Vietnam War draft, died in his sleep Friday morning at the age of 69 after a lengthy illness. Born in Louisiana and raised in Tennessee, Winchester developed his musical talent while living in Montreal. He often played at a hotel in Morin Heights, Que., run by several Tennessee transplants during the 1970s.

    Road to MoscowBill Clinton’s Early Activism from Fulbright to Moscow By Fedora SummaryDuring the 1992 campaign, Bill Clinton’s student protests and Moscow trip generated much controversy, but few answers. While Clinton’s government files from that era seemingly remain unavailable even today, there is at least more information available than in 1992. The public record reveals that Clinton’s social network and views on Vietnam were influenced by a pattern of contact between Communist agents and sympathizers and Clinton’s academic and political associates. This pattern is documented here through an analysis of Clinton’s antiwar activity up through the time he left Oxford...

    The Jewish Congressman who became the darling of the left wing of the Democratic party but not so much with his district (he served only one term), who, in 2009, defined the Republican’s idea of health care plan as, “Don’t get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly,” may require some serious health care himself. According to WESH-TV2, last Saturday in Orlando, Fla., the former Florida Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson ran a red light with his car, a Mercedes (now, is that a car a nice Jewish boy should be driving?) and smashed into a public transit bus....

    Tough guy John Gotti wasn't going to fight America's war in Vietnam. The late Gambino mob boss was just a young hood when drafted in 1963, and after failing to appear for induction the draft dodger was found two years later as reported by Danny Fenster for Tickle The Wire: "Gotti told authorities he was unaware of the draft status. He reported to the selective service board the next day, but was never inducted into the armed forces due to his criminal record." Of course, mobsters never have been a patriotic bunch. For example, in 1945 Genovese mobster Paul "Lefty"...

    Herman Cain indicated today that he does not agree with Newt Gingrich’s position on immigration. “The way I would deal with those that are already here, which has been my stated position: empower the states to deal with the illegals that are already here, not some, big, grandiose, national one size fit-all. I believe that the states should be empowered to deal with the illegals that are already here,” Cain said CNN’s State of the Union this morning. In response to whether that meant the states could allow illegal immigrants to “be put on a path toward legalization and toward...

    Former President Bill Clinton urged President Barack Obama to consider appointing someone to the Supreme Court who comes from political life, but said both he and his wife, the secretary of state, were too old for the job. Several senators have also urged the White House to look at candidates outside the judiciary to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens. Political figures used to be well represented on the high court, but all nine justices serving now came from the federal appeals bench. Nominees from such a background are seen as easier to confirm and as more predictable once they...
