    Let's all rejoice! The Treasury Department is finally beginning to unload the taxpayers' stake in General Motors after a three and a half year stint of government involvement in the company. While the decision to get taxpayers out of the private sector is the correct one, the move is hardly a cure-all for what ails GM. And despite reports to the contrary, this does not bring closure to all groups that were involved in the unprecedented intrusion of government into the private sector that saw politically-powerful groups like the UAW receive favorable treatment over other classes. Let's start by reviewing...

    PHOENIX -- A couple of days after breathing new life into the conspiracy theory that Barack Obama is not eligible to be president, the chairman of the Arizona Republican Party says he's not running for another term. The announcement is a surprise as Tom Morrissey had publicly said he would seek a second two-year term during the GOP's annual organizational meeting next month. Morrissey said Wednesday it was a tough decision but he is stepping down because of health reasons. On Monday, Morrissey and a pair of other Republicans questioned the authenticity of Obama's certificate, rekindling a long debunked theory....

    During his press conference today, called to announce his new gun control task force, President Obama invoked the Newtown massacre to apply pressure on congressional Republicans in the fiscal cliff standoff. OBAMA: If this past week has done anything it should give us some perspective. I-I-I-If there’s one thing we should have, after this week, it should be a sense of perspective about what’s important. And I would like to think that members of that caucus would say to themselves “You know what, I disagree with the president on some things. We wish the other guy had won. We’re...

    The number of young black men who cast a vote for the Republican presidential candidate in 2012 tripled that of 2008. Hearing this statistic, one commenter quipped, “Is this one of those situations where three times nothing is still nothing?” No. “Nearly 20 percent of black males under 30 voted for Romney, more than three times what McCain got.” That according to Ann Coulter, who gets her information from Pew Research.How? Why? Is there a growing number of young black conservatives?Those stand as worthy questions. Answering them properly would require follow-up polling. Any number of factors could have informed...

    Twenty-seven years after driving from New York City to Chicago in a $2,000 Honda Civic for a job that probably wouldnt amount to much, Barack Obama, in better shape but with grayer hair, stood in the presidential suite on the top floor of the Fairmont Millennium Park hotel as flat screens announced his re-election as President of the United States.

    Barack Obama has warned Britain against leaving the European Union, it emerged today. The US President used a call to David Cameron to urge him to resist calls to abandon Brussels, ahead of the PM delivering a major speech on Europe in the New Year. But President Obama is understood to be backing Mr. Camerons approach in his fight for a better deal for Britain.

    Over the course of Obama's first four years as president, we watched him "evolve" from a zealous, I-will-slow-the-rise-of-the-oceans climate change champion to a remarkably quiet almost-bystander on the whole debate. Now that his second term is secure, I’m sure we can expect that at least his rhetoric on the subject will once again reach much more vociferous levels, via The Hill: President Obama has identified climate change as one of his top three priorities in his second term after coming under fire from environmentalists for giving the issue short shrift during the campaign.The president, in an interview for TIME's Person...

    NRA membership is surging since the Sandy Hook massacre according to an internal document that was made known to James Rosen of FOX News. They are gaining roughly 8,000 new members a day which is unlike anything they saw even in the wake of Columbine. Via The OReilly Factor:(VIDEO AT LINK)It should also be noted - Following the Sandy Hook shooting most Americans (86%) want more action to identify and treat mental illness. Only 27% agree with Obama and Democrats that stricter gun laws are needed...

    His words, after five days of extensive news coverage and national debate, were intensely focused on gun violence. He addressed no other topics. Yet judging by the questions that followed his address, most of the members of the Washington press corps had other things on their minds. Id like to ask you about the other serious issue consuming this town right now, the fiscal cliff, was the first question, from The Associated Presss correspondent, Ben Feller. Mr. Obama answered. Then came the next question, again about the so-called fiscal cliff: What is your next move? Then: You mentioned the $700,000,...

    CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think the president invoking the massacre of children to essential say the Republicans need to accept his terms of surrender in the negotiations is not just a non-sequitur, I think it's sacrilege. And it's of a piece with the whole tone of his news conference and this is the way he conducts them generally, which is he is excessively self-righteous. He talks about the other side of being unprincipled, not interested in the national interest, slaves of ideology which he says makes no sense. And as you mention, invested in opposing him to the point they are...

By contrast, Dicks Sporting Goods Inc. suspended sales of similar guns at its more than 500 stores. Searches of five kinds of semi-automatic rifles on Wal- Marts website...

    Mexican beauty queen Susana Flores Maria Gamez and four others died in a brutal gun battle between Sinaloa cartel members and the Mexican military in November. CBS News has learned that one weapon recovered from the area of the crime scene was originally purchased by federal agent George Gillett, an Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) manager who was faulted by the Inspector General in Operation Fast and Furious. Gillett was the Assistant Special Agent in Charge of ATF Phoenix when Fast and Furious started. The recovered weapon is a so-called FN Herstal pistol nicknamed a "cop-killer" because of its designation...

    BALTIMORE, December 19, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) The Obama administrations HHS mandate may force the Catholic Little Sisters of the Poor to cease their U.S. operations, according to Sister Constance Carolyn Veit, the religious orders communications director. The Little Sisters currently provide group homes and daily care for the elderly poor in 30 U.S. cities. Sister Constance told The Daily Caller that the Little Sisters may not qualify for a religious exemption from ObamaCares requirement that employers provide coverage for contraceptives, sterilizations and abortion-causing drugs free of charge to female workers. We are not exempt from the [ObamaCare] mandate because we...

    <p>Those who argue that the 2nd Amendment grants unlimited gun ownership rights must also recognize it is a federal constitutional amendment. And for those able to read and comprehend a COMPLETE sentence in the English language, it was never intended to operate outside of a "well regulated militia." We must therefore institute reasonable gun regulation at the federal level, not leave it solely up to states to turn their territories into shooting galleries, and feed deadly weapons of mass murder to buyers from states with more sane and responsible laws.</p>

    In the wake of the recent Sandy Hook shooting, I reached out to my contacts in law enforcement, military and (retired) FBI over the last three days, asking three simple questions: #1) Do you think Obama will use executive orders to demand nationwide gun confiscation? #2) If such an order is given, will you or fellow members of your organization enforce it against the citizens? (And if so, how?) #3) What is the solution to stopping future mass shootings? I posed these questions to one ex-FBI agent, one retired Sheriff's deputy, two active duty city police detectives, one retired former...
