    More than nine out of 10 voters in three states support closing the loophole that allows people to buy guns at gun shows without a background check, according to a series of Quinnipiac surveys conducted this month. In the wake of the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut last month, President Obama has made the implementation of universal background checks one of his top gun control priorities. Currently, gun buyers are subject to criminal background checks when purchasing guns from federally licensed gun dealers, but unlicensed sellers are not required to do background checks. This...

    http://theothermccain.com/ ^ | February 2, 2013 | John Nolte/Robert Stacy McCain
    The New York Times spins it this way: The longest-serving president of any of the three network news divisions, Steve Capus of NBC News, stepped down from his position on Friday, six months after Comcast restructured its news units in a way that diminished his authority. Exactly how voluntary was this “stepping down”? John Nolte points to the scandal-plagued tenure of Capus at NBC News: 1. During last year’s presidential election, Andrea Mitchell was caught manufacturing a Romney gaffe where none existed. 2. During last year’s GOP primary, Ed Schultz edited video of Texas Governor Rick Perry to make him...

    Looks like liberals are still trying to peddle the discredited allegation that Tea Party members attacked black members of Congress. The op-ed page of today's New York Times contains a column by James Sleeper, a long-time left-wing activist, now a lecturer at Yale. The gist is the grudging respect that Sleeper came to have for Ed Koch, the former New York City mayor who passed away two days ago. Sleeper writes of how as mayor, Koch wrestled to the ground a protester who had stormed the stage as he spoke and pelted him with eggs. Sleeper wrote that Koch's asking...

    On Thursday, the Associated Press reported that an off-duty armed officer at the Price Middle School in Atlanta disarmed a student who managed to shoot a 14-year-old boy in the neck. CNN's Piers Morgan, however, claimed in a tweet that the officer really didn't stop what could have been another Sandy Hook tragedy, Twitchy reported Friday. "REVEALED: Armed guard was NOT able to stop Atlanta school shooting," Morgan tweeted, linking to the AP report that says the boy was disarmed by an off-duty officer at the school. Twitchy said that while most "reasonable people" would "consider this an argument in...

    Shocking Numbers That Show The Media Is Lying To You About Unemployment In America By Michael snyder February 1st, 2013 Did you know that the percentage of the U.S. labor force that is employed has continually been falling since 2006 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics? Did you know that the increase in the number of Americans "not in the labor force" during Barack Obama's first four years in the White House was more than three times greater than the increase in the number of Americans "not in the labor force" during the entire decade of the 1980s? The...
