    Tens of thousands perhaps more are set to march and rally in the center of British government, Whitehall, in London at 10am this morning Eastern time, 3pm in London for the latest "Free Tommy Robinson" event. A leaflet promoting the event says that US Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona is one of the speakers. Robinson was arrested May 25th when he live streamed outside of a child sex abuse trial involving a case of industrial scale with Muslim defendants. He was jailed for 13 months for contempt of court and now is in solitary confinement in a prison with a...

    Why not? She should be at the top of Pres. Trump's short list. She makes no bones about what she thinks. She's a woman and of mid-eastern decent (Lebanese), the d'RAT's should love that and would be a shoe-in for them. Let their name calling and insults begin. Bwhahahahaha.
  • Vanity - Vote for Republican/Conservative, Corey Stewart for Senate in Virginia.

    06/15/2018 7:11:00 PM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 25 replies
    Corey Stewart is the Republican candidate facing "Dim Bulb" Democrat, Senator Tim Kaine for the Senate seat in Virginia. I have no doubt that Stewart will run a terrific, pro-active, effective campaign against the failed, Hillary Clinton, VP choice..."the well known, asleep at the wheel, deadbeat, Democrat, Tim Kaine". Rumblings are heard that the Establishment GOP Senate campaign group will not fund the Stewart race. It's hard to believe....but Stewart can defeat Tim Kaine. It's amazing, because if Stewart takes down Kaine early in the evening of election day, the entire country (who will still be voting) will witness a...

    From my limited research, it seems likely that Stapleton will win the Republican primary for the Governor's race, and that he'll almost certainly face Polis in November. And then Stapleton will likely lose. Polis has a 5 point edge on him in current polling, but I don't know that any of the other Republican candidates have any better chance. Incidentally, here's each candidate's position on my #1 issue, gun rights: Walker Stapleton Supports teachers voluntarily carrying concealed weapons. Supports repeal of "misguided" 2013 gun control measures limiting magazine size and requiring more background checks. Advocates increased security at schools and...

    Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick – a Democrat serving a 28-year sentence for corruption – is seeking President Donald Trump’s help to get out of prison early, according to reports. Kilpatrick, writing on the Free Kwame Project website, says he has undergone a spiritual transformation since resigning from office in 2008 following a text-messaging sex scandal. “By God’s grace, I have received a pardon from Him, through Christ Jesus. I pray that I will receive the opportunity for Pardon/Clemency from the President of the United States as well,” he writes.

    CAL 3, an initiative spearheaded by venture capitalist Tim Draper, has submitted 600,000 to the California secretary of state, far more than the 365,000 needed to secure a ballot spot, KABC reported Tuesday evening.

    California’s 168-year run as a single entity, hugging the continent’s edge for hundreds of miles and sprawling east across mountains and desert, could come to an end next year — as a controversial plan to split the Golden State into three new jurisdictions qualified Tuesday for the Nov. 6 ballot. If a majority of voters who cast ballots agree, a long and contentious process would begin for three separate states to take the place of California, with one primarily centered around Los Angeles and the other two divvying up the counties to the north and south. Completion of the radical...
  • Florida Lawmaker Seeks To Create Nationwide Gun Registry

    06/10/2018 10:22:50 AM PDT · by rktman · 54 replies ^ | 6/7/2018 | Tom Knighton
    U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson introduced legislation this week that would create a national gun registry. Known as the “Crime Gun Tracing Modernization Act,” the bill would require ATF to set up a “searchable, computerized database” of all records pertaining to the sale, importation, production or shipment of firearms. The agency would be given three years to get the system up and running. “The fact that there is a law on the books that forces agents to comb through millions of files by hand is absolutely ridiculous,” said Nelson, a Florida Democrat.

    Illinois Congressman Bobby Rush says his bill is modeled in part after the Illinois Firearm Owners Identification Card program, now in its 50th year (Photo: Rush’s office) Illinois Democrats on Capitol Hill are backing a plan that would outlaw unlicensed gun ownership in the nation. The bicameral measure was introduced this week in the House by U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush as H.R. 6024 and in the Senate as S.3002 by U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth. It would make it a crime to own a gun without a federally issued license and direct the Attorney General to establish and a system to...
  • The lesson of ’31 bullets’: We have the power to civilize our gun laws (barf alert)

    We are shouting from the outside. Shout loud and long enough, though, and we can prevail. We can civilize our gun laws. One month ago, this editorial page launched a campaign called “31 bullets” to promote 31 ways to curb gun violence in our nation, and with each proposed action we did our best to include a simple way that you, personally, could make it happen. We presented our 31st and last bullet — a call for federal design safety standards for American-made guns — on Tuesday. EDITORIAL We have called the campaign, which we are conducting in partnership with...
  • Is the Pope Catholic?

    You laugh! Like the question, Who wrote the Gospel of John? the question, Is the Pope Catholic? hardly seems to deserve a reply. Well, not until a few weeks ago. The historic catechism of the Catholic Church, (based on the Old and New Testament and on centuries of tradition) has always taught that homosexuality is immoral and that the proclivity toward same-sex relations is unnatural. It is surprising then, that the Pope said (according to a Chilean homosexual, who visited him at the Vatican), “Juan Carlos, it doesn’t matter that you’re gay. God made you that way and that is...

    As Arizonans prepare for their final salute to Sen. John McCain, Republicans and political pundits in the state privately tell Newsmax they expect the appointment of his wife, Cindy, to succeed him in the Senate. Of course, no one in the Grand Canyon State who spoke to us wants to go on record discussing what will happen when the ailing McCain no longer holds his seat. But those who did agree, almost unanimously, that Cindy McCain following John in the Senate through appointment by Republican Gov. Doug Ducey is a near-certainty. "I've always assumed that was the arrangement," said a...

    Scientists say they have discovered the next superfood that’s a perfect non-dairy alternative. However, they may have a hard time getting people to try cockroach milk. Using a 2016 report on the benefits of insect dairy, scientists found that the Pacific Beetle cockroach of Hawaii possesses nutrient-filled milk crystals, which they use to feed their young. “A single crystal is estimated to contain more than three times the energy of an equivalent mass of dairy milk,” the report stated... Some companies are already trying to get ahead of the trend by selling the bug juice in everything from milk to...

    The Brookings Institution ^ | 04-26-2018 | Elaine Kamarck
    If, as expected, Mitt Romney wins his race for a Senate seat from Utah he may become the most powerful man in the United States Senate. As many of us remember, Romney, former Governor of Massachusetts, ran for president in 2012 and lost to Barack Obama. It wasn’t one of those totally humiliating losses—the map did not turn blue—but we assumed Mitt Romney would fade into history. Well, maybe not. The seat will remain Republican-held for President Trump come January of 2019, but this one could very well turn out to be the swing vote in the Senate. If Democrats...
  • Washington Post: Can Americans ditch guns the way we ditched cigarettes?

    The Washington Post ^ | 05/21/18 | Petula Dvorak
    Not that long ago, cigarettes were completely woven into American culture. The Marlboro Man, posters telling us that “more doctors smoke Camels than any other cigarette,” even the armrests on planes and all our cars were designed for smokers. And now? Not so much. Can it work like that with guns? (snip) I grew up surrounded by cigarette smoke. My dad smoked. So did practically everyone else I knew. But my kids? Totally different. They saw someone smoking in a restaurant while we were traveling abroad recently and they freaked out, like they’d witnessed a beheading. Inconceivable in their world.
  • EXCLUSIVE: Mueller agrees to narrow scope of questions in bid to interview Trump

    05/17/2018 5:28:18 PM PDT · by ColdOne · 80 replies ^ | 5/17/18 | Rowan Scarborough
    Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s lawyer, says that special counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to avoid a “fishing” expedition by narrowing the subject of questions in an effort to get the president to submit to an interview with the prosecutor. Mr. Giuliani also says he thinks fired FBI Director James Comey is “not going to be worth anything as a witness” and thus less a threat to the president. Mr. Giuliani told The Washington Times that Mr. Mueller’s team displayed a “first good faith effort” during a Wednesday meeting that might result in an interview in July and a final Mueller...

    A Polish highway was shut down on Wednesday when a tanker truck full of liquid chocolate crashed and spilled its contents across the road. Cleanup efforts on the highway were being hampered because the chocolate was quickly cooling and solidifying on the six-lane surface. Crews at the scene said that they needed to ship in hot water to melt the chocolate and wash it away. Senior brigadier Bogdan Kowalski with the fire brigade of Slupca, a town in western Poland, said, "cooling chocolate is worse than snow." TVN24 reported from the site of the accident that the driver was taken...
