    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Let me tell you what I think, and I'm gonna tell you this in a balanced way -- a balanced and fair way. What I think is really going on here is our president, Barack Obama, if you'll note, really never talks about plans and proposals to solve problems. What he does is position his political opponents as the enemy. Everything he did today in the debt limit Q&A in his press conference, and even in the setup, was about the enemy. The Republicans are the enemy. He's not proposing solutions to anything. He's not interested in...

    A California boy, now 12, was convicted of second-degree murder today for shooting dead his neo-Nazi father, following a juvenile trial that centered on abuse allegations and the young defendant’s grasp of right and wrong. The verdict by Superior Court Judge Jean Leonard means that Joseph Hall, who shot his father to death in May 2011, could be sentenced to a juvenile facility until he is 23. Hall’s attorneys had conceded during the trial that Hall, who was then 10 years old, shot his father at point-blank range while the older man was sleeping, but argued that the boy should...

The group has already purchased 20 acres in the area where they intend to build an arms factory which will be used to fund the project.

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Some pictures are so powerful that there are not enough words to spin away their message. One scene that the media hoped you would never know about played out before their cameras at the political stunt gun buyback held by Tucson City Councilman Steve Kozachik last week. The crews got the pictures, learned the story, and then deliberately tossed them in an online gallery with a hundred others pictures, or left on the television newsroom cutting floor. She said she came to sell a gun to feed herself for two weeks....

    January 14, 2013 McCrystal Shoots Off His Mouth Again: We Should Look at Banning Weapons that are Already Banned Bryan Preston Last week, retiring Gen. Stanley McCrystal made a stir when he suggested that America ought to take a look at enacting new gun control laws. Specifically, McCrystal said he supports banning military firearms such as M4 and M16 rifles. Such weapons are already banned from civilian ownership except in very few cases, and have been since 1934. Such weapons have played no role in any of the recent shootings that have been in the national headlines.Appearing on America’s Radio...

    ... Julianne Moore won an award for playing Sarah Palin in Game Change, because of course she did. And then, apparently, the director of the movie was gushing about how “brave” she was for doing that. That’s right: Daring to depict Sarah Palin in an unflattering light is an act of bravery. In Hollywood.

    Two teachers and two other school employees were among 50 people arrested as part of an online child-sex sting in central Florida, reports. "Operation Cardea" targeted people who use the Internet to sexually exploit children, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said, and the suspects were arrested over the past week, including four men arrested late Sunday night. The list of those arrested includes two local school teachers and two other employees at local schools. Jorge Daniel Ferreira, a science teacher at Ocoee Middle School, was one of those arrested. Orange County Schools officials tell Fox 35 that Ferreira has...

    During a Monday press conference in the White House, President Barack Obama was asked about his seeming lack of interest in socialization with other members of the political establishment in Washington. Obama said that, while he is a friendly person, it takes two to socialize and Republicans are generally not interested in being seen with him. He blamed “media that is preferred by Republican constituencies” for creating an environment in which a Republican politician seen with Obama has to fear a primary fight in their next election. President Obama said he does socialize with members of Congress from the other...
  • Hobby Lobby Delays Obamacare Fines for Now; Avoids $18.2 Million Penalty

    Craft chain Hobby Lobby said it has found a way to delay compliance with the Obamacare mandate, which requires companies to cover contraception in their employees' health care. Pastor Rick Warren has warned that religious freedom, at the heart of the company's battle, might become this decade's civil rights movement. The evangelical Christian-owned company plans to shift the beginning of its employee health plan to temporarily avoid $1.3 million a day in fines for each day since Jan. 1 that it did not comply with the Affordable Care Act. Without the delay, the fine would now have totaled $18.2 million....

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — From a hometown of 26,000 people to an adopted home borough of 2.6 million, Miss America's story includes a journey from a small town to the big city — but it doesn't start there. Mallory Hagan, 23, moved from Alabama to New York City as soon as she became a legal adult, and though she says she left because "I needed to find myself," it turns out she knew who she wanted to be all along. snip [money quote]"I'm not sure that it came out as eloquently as I would have liked it to, but my...

    Hundreds of thousands of people from across France gathered in Paris on Sunday to oppose President Francois Hollande's plan to legalize same-sex marriage, which would allow gay couples to adopt and conceive children. Police estimated about 340,000 people participated in the "demo for all" march to oppose a proposed legislation billed as "marriage for all." It was one of the largest demonstrations in the French capital since an education protest in 1984, according to The Associated Press. Organizers claimed more than 800,000 people turned out to oppose the proposal. Protesters started the march from three points in the city, walking...

    Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley will seek to institute some of the nation’s strictest gun-licensing requirements, ban assault weapons and restrict visitor access to schools in one of the most expansive government responses sought to last month’s school shooting in Newtown, Conn. Perhaps most controversially, O’Malley (D) will ask the General Assembly to force prospective gun owners to provide fingerprints to state police, complete a hands-on weapon-familiarization and gun-safety course, and undergo a background check to be licensed. And the governor is seeking new measures to keep guns out of the hands of those with mental illness who show violent tendencies....

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, I think, for example, how we are gathering data, for example, on guns that fall into the hands of criminals and how we track that more effectively -- there may be some steps that we can take administratively, as opposed -- through legislation. As far as people lining up and purchasing more guns, you know, I think that we’ve seen for some time now that those who oppose any common-sense gun control or gun safety measures have a pretty effective way of ginning up fear on the part of gun owners that somehow the federal government’s about...

    As the worst drought since 1956 gripped the nation last year, lakes and ponds slowly receded, revealing decades worth of dropped and discarded fishing tackle, pop cans and all sorts of flotsam. At Oak Lake in Lincoln, the debris included at least two guns. A person walking along the edge of the lake last summer spied a suspicious item and called Lincoln police, who found a handgun rusted beyond recognition. “That thing could have been in there for 50 years for all we know,” said Sgt. Ben Miller. After that gun turned up, officers Kevin Hinton and Jen Mullendore couldn’t...
