    As a Brit, it has often baffled me as to the direction that gun control is heading in the U.S. Britain and many other nations have firsthand experience of what happens when stringent gun control laws are brought in: Gun murders rise sharply. If you want the full statistics with tables, check out the report by the Crime Prevention Research Center, here. Here are some key findings: UK gun ban introduced: Homicide rate increased dramatically. Ireland gun ban introduced: Homicide rate increased dramatically. Jamaica gun ban introduced: Homicide rate increased dramatically. Can you see a pattern?
  • Seven Inconvenient Facts About Trump’s Refugee Actions

    Breitbart ^ | 01/29/17 | John Hayward
    The sober and logical reasons for President Donald Trump’s executive order on refugees and visitors are rising above the noise after an evening of hysterical over-reactions and emotional meltdowns on the nation’s TV networks. Advocates of sane, secure immigration policy have long noted that it’s almost impossible to have a reasonable discussion of the refugee and immigration issues, because it’s been sentimentalized and politicized beyond the realm of rational thought. This weekend brings them another superb example of media-magnified shrieking about fascism, bleating about “white nationalists,” howling about “religious persecution,” false invocations of the Constitution, and theatrical sobbing on behalf...
  • The Dakota Access Pipeline and the rule of law — facts matter

    Oil Pro ^ | 12/12/2016 | Miki Kolobara
    Watching the events and the court case surrounding the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, I appreciate that people are paying attention to any negative environmental impact an oil pipeline may have. At the same time, I cringe at the coverage and the absence of important factual information related to the pipeline’s legal permitting process. When I hear celebrities on the news claim the Dakota Access Pipeline is going through the heart of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s land, I expect the reporters to correct them. The media should tell us that the pipeline follows existing utility easements (including the existing gas...

    49 abominable facts about Hillary the media won't tell you  By Jen Kuznicki September 03, 2016 If you listen to the news, the only real reporting being done about Hillary Clinton has to do with her email scandal. Even though she violated the Espionage Act, the FBI refused to prosecute. Her family’s foundation is under heavy scrutiny. But did you know these other important points about Hillary’s life-long run to the White House? Saul Alinsky During her college years at Wellesley, Hillary Clinton formed her political ideology as a close friend and confidant of Saul Alinsky, the Marxist firebrand who...

    I'm only grabbing information from the internal numbers of the questionable polls that bring into question the final average. Makes you wonder about those who can't remember if they voted 4 years ago? There are a few interesting things to note from the McClatchy-Marist poll above. Especially when you consider they under polled Republicans. If you recalculate the number you would find that Trump does much better against Hillary with men than she does with women which is skewed by the over sampling of Democrats. Plus when pollsters say college educated vs college uneducated, they mean those with a...

    Standard anti-cop ideology, whether emanating from the ACLU or the academy, holds that law enforcement actions are racist if they don’t mirror population data. New York City illustrates why that expectation is so misguided. Blacks make up 23 percent of New York City’s population, but they commit 75 percent of all shootings, 70 percent of all robberies, and 66 percent of all violent crime, according to victims and witnesses. Add Hispanic shootings and you account for 98 percent of all illegal gunfire in the city. Whites are 33 percent of the city’s population, but they commit fewer than two percent...

As The Economic Collapse blog's Michael Snyder details, while most people seem to think that since the stock market has rebounded significantly in recent weeks that everything must be okay, that is not true at all. Has the U.S. economy gotten better over the past six months or has it gotten worse?  In this article, you will find solid proof that the U.S. economy has continued...
  • Mitt Romney is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts, about Donald Trump

    Canada Free Press ^ | 03/07/16 | Herman Cain
    And on behalf of The People, I need to point out how completely wrong some of his "facts" are. Mitt Romney’s much publicized speech last week was all anti-Trump. That’s his choice, but he cannot choose to misrepresent the facts. Also, he chose to ignore the overwhelming number of people who have given Donald Trump the lead in the Republican delegate count so far. Romney’s first false accusation was that Trump’s domestic policies would send this economy into a deep recession. Really! Trump’s published tax plan helps the economy with lower rates and simplicity. Secondly, his just released health insurance...

    “The truth is like a lion; you don’t have to defend it. Let it loose; it will defend itself.” – St. Augustine Moral clarity is the ability to see things as they really are. This type of clarity is only possible when one believes what is true. America lost her way when she chose the lies of moral relativism over the moral clarity of truth. For to dispose of truth in favor of moral relativism creates moving targets of the standards by which society must agree to live. If we cannot call something “evil,” how can we refer to anything...

    The Daily Mail ^ | October 9, 2015 | Anneta Konstantinides
    The View has become the center of controversy once again, this time after Raven-Symoné admitted that she would not hire someone with a 'black' name. 'I'm not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea,' the former child star said to her shocked co-hosts during Thursday's episode of the ABC show. 'It's just not going to happen,' she continued. 'I'm not going to hire you.' Raven's comment came while the women discussed a recent UCLA study published in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior, which found that Americans make racist assumptions based on people's names. Whoopi Goldberg introduced the...

    3% – Planned Parenthood (hereafter PP) often claims that that abortions account for only 3 percent of the services they provide. While this may be technically true, it is a highly misleading statistic. PP considers an "activity" any separate action, exam, or test they do for a patient. If patient comes in for an abortion they may also give her an HIV test, a STI test, a pap test, medication to prevent a urinary tract infection, and some oral contraceptives. PP counts each as an "activity." Even if a pregnant woman came to a PP clinic specifically for an abortion,...

    President Obama is under fire from The Washington Post’s fact-checker over a series of recent far-fetched gun claims, including suggesting the country’s homicide rate is higher than that of other industrialized nations “by like a mile.” The comments, made during a stop in South Carolina last week, earned the president three out of four "Pinocchios" -- the fact-checker's scale for measuring inaccuracy.

    New Scientist ^ | 28 February 2015 | Hal Hodson
    THE internet is stuffed with garbage...Google has devised a fix – rank websites according to their truthfulness. Google's search engine currently uses the number of incoming links to a web page as a proxy for quality, determining where it appears in search results. So pages that many other sites link to are ranked higher. This system has brought us the search engine as we know it today, but the downside is that websites full of misinformation can rise up the rankings, if enough people link to them. A Google research team is adapting that model to measure the trustworthiness of...

    My daughter Heather, visiting from her home Madison, Wis., for Thanksgiving, took me by surprise with a peculiar request: She asked me to take her to Ferguson. All the more peculiar was the fact that this was a week ago yesterday, while the ruins of gutted businesses still smoldered from fires set barely 36 hours before. Heather wasnÂ’t asking just some random dad. She knew that mine had been one of the Post-DispatchÂ’s fingers on that communityÂ’s pulse since the shooting of Michael Brown on Aug. 9. IÂ’m police and court editor here, which accounts for why I havenÂ’t had...
