  • Mad Magazine Destroys Obama's Taliban Swap

    Breitbart ^ | 6/3/14 | Christian Toto
    Count Mad Magazine as the first pop culture institution to target President Barack Obama's Taliban prisoner swap. It's hard to imagine any other humorist in any other medium hitting back quite so hard in the days to come. The magazine posted a fake movie advertisement for Trading Private Bergdahl, a takeoff on the Oscar-winning film Saving Private Ryan. The one-sheet features five Taliban soldiers and President Obama with this kicker: "They got five Taliban leaders. We got one deserting weasel."

    Breitbart´s Big Journalism ^ | 6/3/14 | Warner Todd Huston
    Time magazine is rushing to President Obama´s side to defend him against the charge that he negotiated with terrorists to secure the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. The magazine tells readers that the maxim that America doesn´t negotiate with terrorists is more of a general ideal than a hard-bound policy and cites several other presidents who, the magazine claims, did negotiate with terrorists. Time notes that during the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis Jimmy Carter negotiated with the Iranian Mullahs who took over Iran after deposing the Shah. Reagan also negotiated with the Mullahs, Time notes. Of course, in both cases

    Bearing Arms ^ | 14 March 14 | Bob Owens
    It’s really very, very simple for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. New Jersey’s absurd citizen control fetish doesn’t play well in New Hampshire, Iowa, Colorado, Minnesota, Missouri, Utah, Nevada, South Carolina, North Carolina, Arizona, or Michigan. These state comprise the first two months of the 2016 Presidential primary season, and the majority of Republican voters in these states are either very pro-gun to begin with, or are trending towards passing much more Second Amendment-friendly laws. Any candidate that doesn’t do well in these early primaries can kiss their Presidential aspirations goodbye, and one of the fastest ways to sink...

    The top editor of Guns & Ammo became the second employee of the venerable firearms magazine to lose his job after a column advocating gun control backfired, prompting rifle-toting readers to unload on the publication. In a statement posted Wednesday on the InterMedia Outdoors-owned magazine’s homepage, Jim Bequette apologized to “each and every reader” of the magazine for Dick Metcalf’s column that appeared in its December issue, which generated “unprecedented” controversy and left readers “hopping mad” in regards to the magazine’s commitment to the Second Amendment. ********** In his column entitled “Let’s Talk Limits: Do certain firearm regulations really constitute...

A Noon, the organizer of the event, Ryan Teluja, started speaking, making his point on why we were doing what we were about to do. He 'broke the law' first by accepting a 9mm pistol mag that held more than 15 rounds with another gentleman. Then in return, he gave the same gentleman an AR15 magazine for his rifle. Then he offered a magazine for sale, and someone offered him $10 for...

    One day into the Colorado ban on magazines that hold more than 15 rounds of ammunition, pawn shop owners have discovered the first unintended consequence of the new law — people who’ve pawned weapons with now-outlawed 30-round magazines can’t get the magazines back, even if they pay off their pawnshop loans. Under Colorado law, when customers pawn items, they transfer ownership to the pawn broker in exchange for the right of first refusal to buy them back under the terms of the pawn agreement. As of Monday, it’s illegal to buy magazines that hold more than 15 rounds, leaving some...

This 'law' is so bad, that sheriffs from 54 of Colorado’s 64 counties are suing to have it overturned. In defiance of this law, which is repugnant to the Constitution and therefor null and void, we as free Citizens of Colorado and of the united States of America, will join together to freely trade, buy and swap "high-capacity" firearm magazines in...

    Since D.C. officials refused to turn over any documents about their investigation and decision not to prosecute NBC News’ David Gregory, we have to depend on the Freedom of Information Act to force transparency. Mayor Vincent Gray’s office, however, responded to my request by deflecting. It turned out, he was hiding information. On March 11, I sent a detailed request to FOIA Officer Mikelle DeVillier in the Executive Office of the Mayor. I asked for all documents about Mr. Gregory’s possession of an illegal 30-round magazine. Government agencies are required to respond to a FOIA request within 15 working days. Ms. DeVillier...

    When this column covered Congressman Steve Israel's (D-NY) H.R. 1474, to reauthorize the "undetectable" firearm ban, and expand it to cover magazines, and firearm receivers (as opposed to entire firearms), the text of the bill was not yet available. That has now changed, and the bill has some . . . interesting provisions. Despite Rep. Israel's claim of concern about "undetectable" firearms and magazines, it has become increasingly clear that his real concern is the government's impending loss of control of the people's acquisition of firearms, because 3-D printing and other technologies are quickly putting home manufacture of guns...

    CAIRO — Homemade bombs built from pressure cookers, a version of which was used in the Boston Marathon bombings, have been a frequent weapon of militants in Afghanistan, India and Pakistan. Al-Qaeda’s branch in Yemen once published an online manual on how to make one, urging “lone jihadis” to act on their own to carry out attacks. President Barack Obama underlined Tuesday that investigators do not know if the twin bombing the day before that killed three people and wounded more than 170 was carried out by an international organization, a domestic group or a “malevolent individual.” There has been...

The proposed compromise among legislative leaders would ban large-capacity magazines containing more than 10 bullets – such as the 30-round magazines that Adam Lanza used in the Dec. 14 Newtown school massacre – but would allow owners of existing larger-capacity magazines to keep them if they submit to a new registration system, informed sources have told The Courant. The bipartisan deal reached late last week by legislative leaders also would strengthen the state's...

    Warning that we need to “get weapons of war and massive ammunition magazines off our streets,” in his State of the Union, Obama kept repeating congress must vote on the three types of gun bills he supports. The most obvious thing that was left out of the talk was that none of the laws now being proposed would have done anything to stop the various attacks that Obama cited as justifying the laws. Nor does the evidence show that the previous Assault Weapon Ban from 1994 to 2004 reduced crime. Were some of the killers mentally ill? Undoubtedly, “yes,” but...

    One of the most talked about components of gun control legislation is a magazine capacity limit. Proponents of gun control will often question why anyone needs more than X number of rounds (often 10) in their magazine. This is usually answered with a response about how it isn’t about what we “need” or with an analogy like “why does anyone need a car that goes faster than the speed limit.” Both of these answers are true but they leave a lot to be desired because there are practical reasons for why we actually do need magazines with larger capacities.

It's just a fact, many will judge you as someone who doesn't know much about firearms if you call them "clips." I might still love you, but many won't. :-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UoSNHe413rY

These include not only 30-round rifle magazines, but 17-round magazines for handguns like the Glock. Why does anybody need a high capacity magazine?

    **SNIP** Those who argue that the investigation is ludicrous have a point: Showing an empty gun magazine on television, though illegal in Washington, D.C., was hardly going to harm anyone. As Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren wrote, it's hard to think of a sillier use of investigative resources. But it's also hard to blame the other side for asking that laws be upheld and applied to all -- especially at a time when so many in the media seem to be pushing for more of those laws.

    **SNIP** Anyway, there’s a larger picture here and one that plainly highlights the liberal hypocrisy and incoherence that somehow goes unnoticed by a very large number of people in this country who, unfortunately, also vote. Liberals like David Gregory are allowed to break laws to prove a point. I’d be fine with this if they were also held accountable for breaking those laws. But his accomplices – let’s face it, that’s what they are: accomplices after the fact – are defending him from ANY prosecution at all. Why? He broke the law. Fine, he was making a point, but that...

    David Gregory needs to please turn himself in to the authorities. Mr. Gregory has been accused of having a piece of metal of the wrong size. We've all seen the video of him waving that metal box and spring about on Meet The Press, a box and spring that is illegal to posses in the District of Columbia. We can debate the logic and sense of the law and how it is interpreted at a later date. There is no time for that now. Mr. Gregory needs to act before this spins out of control. He needs to do the...

    No Lawyers - Only Guns and Money ^ | 26 December, 2012 | John Richardson
    By now you may have read about the DC Metropolitan Police Department's active investigation into David Gregory. The host of NBC's Meet the Press thought a 30 round AR magazine would make a cool prop to shake in the face of Wayne LaPierre this past Sunday. What Gregory didn't think about was the DC law which forbids the mere possession of any magazine that is capable of holding more than 10 rounds. If he did think about the law, he obviously assumed it didn't apply to "esteemed journalists" such as himself. Now conservative attorney Aaron Walker is offering to defend...

    The push to ban standard magazines is insane. It is easier to make a 30 round magazine than it is to grow a marijuana plant. The left is pursuing an unachievable result that will not help stop mass murder. Rifle magazines are made from plastic, steel, aluminum, or fiberglass. There are 100’s of millions of them in existence in the United States. They are easily made at home. They are just a box with a spring. If you have a few 10 round magazines it is easy to convert them into 30 round magazines. Technology has improved to the point...

  • German magazine Titanic attacks Pope Benedict XVI

    La Salette Journey ^ | July 5, 2012 | Paul Melanson
    The German magazine Titanic, founded in 1979 by former contributors and editors of Pardon, a satirical monthly, after they had a series of conflicts with their publisher, is mocking Pope Benedict XVI and holding the Holy Father up to contempt by depicting him as a senile and incontinent person. See here. In our modern, paganistic world, the authority of the Holy Father is often challenged, openly defied and even rejected. The early Christians understood Peter's divinely appointed role. They understood that the Lord Jesus appointed Peter to be the guardian and teacher of the Church. They loved him, honored him...

    Al-Qaida magazine urges terrorists to set wildfires in MontanaMay 04, 2012 5:53 am • By GWEN FLORIO Terrorists who want to strike fear in the hearts of Americans would do well to set wildfires in Montana, al-Qaida advises in the most recent issue of its English-language magazine, Inspire. “It is difficult to choose a better place other than in the valleys of Montana where the population increases rapidly,” Inspire’s “AQ Chef” columnist writes. The magazine disappeared for a while after its founders, Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, were killed last year in a U.S. missile strike. But it recently reappeared...

    Nothing would make me happier than seeing Occupiers rampaging in the streets of Chicago only six months before the November elections. (CNS News) — Adbusters, the radical, Vancouver-based anti-consumerist magazine, credited by many media outlets for launching the Occupy Wall Street protests, has put out an ad calling for 50,000 protestors to “Occupy” the G8 summit in May. And they are not calling for peaceful protest. The Adbusters ad shows a picture of policemen beating up a defenseless protestor, and comes with the caption: “In the Tradition of the Chicago 8.” The Chicago 8 were radicals who incited riots in...

    BERLIN (JTA) -- German-Jewish author Rafael Seligmann has launched a Jewish quarterly magazine. Jewish Voice From Germany, a private initiative started last week, is aiming to convince English-speaking Jews around the world that there is a future for Jewish life in Germany. Seligmann, 64, a native of Israel who came to Germany with his parents in 1957, told JTA that it pains him that many Jews outside Germany associate his country only with the Holocaust. “The fact is, we are a small but a very fast-growing Jewish community in Germany,” Seligmann said in a telephone interview. “We have a vivid...
