    James Woods probably won’t be happy about this. The outspoken conservative actor this spring led outcry over the fact that Vogue magazine and other leading women’s magazines have failed to put Melania Trump on their covers since her husband became president. Now comes news that Vogue, the nation’s premier fashion magazine, will serve up a high-gloss spread (though not cover shot) of Stormy Daniels, the adult film actress who claims she had a sexual encounter with future President Donald Trump in July 2006, a few months after Melania Trump gave birth to their son Barron. The Huffington Post reported that...

    FAIRFAX, Va. -- A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit issued a ruling in the case of Duncan v. Becerra on Tuesday upholding a lower court’s decision to suspend enforcement of California’s restriction on the possession of magazines that hold 10 rounds or more. “This is a significant win for law-abiding gun owners in California,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director, National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action. “This unconstitutional law criminalizes mere possession of many standard capacity magazines and would instantly turn many law-abiding gun owners into criminals.” California Rifle and Pistol Association lawyers, with the support of the...
  • Fashion Magazines Ignoring First Lady

    Independent Women's Forum ^ | April 16, 2018 | by Charlotte Hays
    Vogue magazine, the arbiter of fashion, couldn't get enough of Michelle Obama. The same has not been true of Melania Trump. The New York Post observes: Magazines are showing no love for Melania Trump. The internet was in a tizzy last week when actor James Woods pointed out via Twitter that the first lady hasn’t been a muse for the magazine industry since her husband, President Trump, took office. Woods tweeted: “If the Trumps were Democrats, Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” The tweet, which was accompanied by an old...
  • No one would accept, in any other national discussion, the level of ignorance seen in the gun debate

    There are two certainties following nearly every mass shooting event: Cable news television will have its programming schedule set for the next 72 hours, and a significant number of gun control advocates will reveal they lack even a basic understanding of the items they wish to regulate. The first certainty is to be expected. After all, if it bleeds it leads. The second certainty is more remarkable. It’s remarkable that so many proponents of stricter regulations appear to be generally ignorant of not just the minutiae of firearms, but also the basics. It’s also remarkable that this ignorance continues unabated,...
  • 3 Irrefutable Truths The Walkout Kids Need To Hear, And Don’t

    03/14/2018 1:13:35 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 29 replies
    It’s time to speak out some hard truths to the children participating in the so-called “student-led” national walkout and the broader “school safety” movement. Let’s call it speaking truth to power, because there are some very powerful forces blocking most of these young people from hearing these truths — the traditional media, Hollywood and the rest of the culture movers, Democratic leaders, most school leaders and the big activist organizations using the children as pawns for their own agenda. First, despite all the hot air from the above groups of people, all Americans agree on a few things. First, students...

    It seems the mass murderer in Florida did not use magazines of a capacity over 10 rounds. This presents a minor difficulty for those who want to ban magazines over 10 rounds.From miamiherald.com: The “weapon and bullets were not high quality and were breaking apart,” one of the legislators, state Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation, told the Herald.Cruz went in with only 10-round magazines because larger clips would not fit in his duffel bag, Book said. Given the general ignorance of reporters on firearms technology, and of  Democrats in general, I would not rely on this information until we have...

    "Teen Vogue takes teen girls seriously and understands that style and substance aren’t mutually exclusive," says the former Democratic presidential nominee. Teen Vogue's "woke" coverage of sociopolitical issues over the past two years has drawn ire from critics (Tucker Carlson among the most vocal), but with its latest cover star, the glossy just proved that its expanded focus is more than just a phase. The title secured Hillary Clinton as a guest editor and cover star for a special edition of the Conde Nast publication, which hits newsstands Dec. 5. Additionally, it was announced that she will serve as the...

    According to an August 11 article published by #Harper’s Bazaar, anyone who is married to a supporter of President Trump needs to file for divorce immediately. That’s the advice given by the article’s author, #Jennifer Wright, who cites two recent high-profile divorce cases in which a wife filed for divorce on grounds of irreconcilable political differences. In July, a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader by the name of Lynn Aronberg split from her husband, Florida state attorney Dave Aronberg. The wife, who identified herself as a staunch Republican, claimed that she felt “increasingly isolated” in her marriage to a Democrat. More...
  • Hello, Media Fact Checkers! Hillary Claims She Beat Trump, and Nixon Was Impeached

    The Associated Press, PolitiFact, CNN, Snopes and all of the other "fact-checkers" should be busy this weekend and well into next week vetting the howlers contained in Rebecca Traister's New York Magazine Friday afternoon interview of a politician who has been in the public eye for decades. But it's a virtual lock that they won't bother, because the person Traister interviewed was Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton's montage of mendacity is virtually guaranteed to escape the scrutiny of "fact-checkers" because, as I noted at NewsBusters in mid-April, they "overwhelmingly select facts presented by Republican and conservative politicians and pundits, while ignoring similar howlers generated by...

    President-elect Donald Trump responded to Vanity Fair publishing a savage review of the Trump Grill last month by suggesting the magazine’s “no talent” editor, Graydon Carter, “will be out.” But on Friday, it’s Trump who will be inside Condé Nast, home to Vanity Fair and publications including The New Yorker, Vogue, Teen Vogue, Wired, GQ and Glamour. Trump is scheduled sit down with Carter and other members of Condé Nast’s leadership team, including Vogue editor and longtime Democratic donor Anna Wintour, at the company’s World Trade Center headquarters.

    Gun Watch ^ | 11 October, 2016 | Dean Weingarten
    Adam Winkler is a law professor at UCLA.  He has been reliably for imposing additional gun control laws, but is more "moderate" than many academics on the left.  He has more intellectual honesty than most, and has fairly described the racist roots of gun control in the United States. It is interesting to note that Winkler has been writing about the futility of "assault rifle" bans as early as February of 2015. From the latimes.com: There are approaches to gun control, such as universal background checks and cracking down on rogue gun dealers, that can reduce the daily death...
  • Iconic African American magazines Ebony, Jet sold to Texas firm

    Austin private equity firm Clear View Group has purchased two iconic African American lifestyle magazines from Chicago-based Johnson Publishing in a sale that took place in May, according to the Chicago Tribune. Ebony, a periodical that has reflected the lives of African Americans since 1945, was a notable influence and observer during the civil-rights movement of the 1960s. Historical images of subjects such as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Muhammad Ali and Lena Horne were not part of the sale. Jet magazine has transformed from print to digital only.

    In his second speech on Sunday morning's terrorist massacre in Orlando, Florida, President Barack Obama said  on Monday that "the shooter was inspired by various extremist information that was disseminated over the Internet," that "we see no clear evidence that he was directed externally," and that "this is certainly an example of the kind of homegrown extremism that all of us have been so concerned about for a very long time." The press, led as usual by the Associated Press, is certainly cooperating with those characterizations. Presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has clearly made up her mind that...

    JPFO Launches "High Cap Freedom" by Rabbi Dovid Bendory, Rabbinic Director, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. Copyright 2011 JPFO Rabbi BendoryJPFO today launches "The High Capacity Freedom Campaign". First, some background to highlight the hypocrisy and stupidity of a high-capacity magazine ban. Imagine you bought a Glock 17 9mm pistol a year ago. Your purchase was legal and included two 17-round magazines. Now along come Obama and other “common sense” gun-grabbers with a ban on “high capacity” magazines. The result? Based on the so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban of 1994, a federal mandate declares that after a certain date,...

    Melissa Harris-Perry has joined Elle.com, where she will serve as editor-at-large. Elle.com editorial director Leah Chernikoff says Harris-Perry “will focus on the intersection of race, gender, politics, and yes, even fashion, telling the often-overlooked stories of women and girls of color.” Harris-Perry left MSNBC after an internal memo became public in February. In the memo, Harris-Perry accused NBC News chairman Andy Lack and MSNBC president Phil Griffin of taking away her weekend morning discussion program. “I will not be used as a tool for their purposes,” she wrote. “I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head.” “Joining...

    Time.com's Zeke Miller tweeted yesterday that a "reporter" asked recently declared presidential candidate Marco Rubio of Florida the following question: "Is 43 old enough to be president?" Meanwhile, two weeks ago, a column at Time.com claimed that Hillary Clinton is "biologically primed to be a leader." Seriously. Since he either can't or won't tell us who asked the question, we're unable to determine if the "reporter" to whom Miller referred was asking the question because he or she doesn't know the Constitution or was trying to bait Rubio into giving an answer implicitly or explicitly criticizing other candidates. It would...
