    The terrorists who attacked the In Amenas gas complex in eastern Algeria appear to have been of several nationalities, and may have trained in jihadist camps across the border in southern Libya, according to sources familiar with the situation there. Algerian security sources told Reuters late Thursday that the militants whose bodies had been recovered from the complex so far included three Egyptians, two Tunisians, two Libyans, a Malian and a French citizen. -snip- A U.S. official told CNN Wednesday that the hostage-takers appeared to have crossed the Libyan border -- some 50 kilometers (31 miles) from the gas complex...
  • President Obama Undermines Case Against Universal E-Verify [re: gun control]

    "First, it's time for Congress to require a universal background check on anyone trying to buy a gun." These were President Obama's words as he outlined his plans for gun control legislation on Wednesday. FAIR takes no position on gun issues, but the president's unequivocal support for universal checks demonstrates two things: The president does not consider background checks to be an infringement on anyone’s constitutional liberties, andThe president does not consider there to be any technological impediments to carrying out universal checks before someone is permitted to purchase a firearm. In making his statement, President Obama also negated the...

    President Obama's plan, announced Wednesday, to curtail gun violence in the wake of recent mass shootings is drawing both criticism and praise in the gun-loving state of Texas. The president is calling for Congress to implement background checks for all gun purchases and to ban certain assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Republican Gov. Rick Perry said the president's plan "disgusts" him and that it is an effort by the political left to use the killings to accomplish an anti-gun agenda. He called for prayer and a rejection of evil, as opposed to gun regulation. But Sen. Rodney Ellis, D-Houston, said...

Democratic officials familiar with the plan said Thursday the tax-exempt organization will be called Organizing for Action and seek to harness the energy of the president’s re-election campaign for future legislative fights. Officials said the group will be separate from the Democratic National Committee and advocate on key policy issues such as gun control and immigration, train future leaders and devote attention to local issues around the nation. … Coming just...

    According to the US Census Bureau, the poverty rate in the USA soared to 15% by the end of 2011. Poverty, of course, is linked to unemployment and partial employment. Here is a chart of US poverty compared to the U6 measure of unemployment. Perhaps when the Census Bureau updates their poverty survey for 2012, it will have improved. Of course, the poverty numbers suffer from the infamous “devil is in the details” problem. The Heritage Foundation, for example, digs deeper in the causes and measurement of poverty. Poverty can include Section 8 housing, big screen televisions, food stamps and...

Even allowing for spikes in gun sales that follow every mass killing in the United States and attendant political debates about gun control, industry executives said the surge seems unprecedented.

George W. Bush was overwhelmed with the Iraqi insurgency and Katrina. And Obama will have his as well, obsequious media or not. Supposedly fundamental partisan swings of an era usually prove transitory: LBJ’s landside led to Nixon four years later, whose landslide then led to Carter in 1980, whose supposed new politics of humility and apology led to Reagan, whose small government-paradigm shift nonetheless by 1992 gave us Clinton,...

    Admitting that passing his ambitious plan to rein in shooting incidents such as the one that occurred in Newtown, Connecticut, last month would “be difficult,” President Obama published a 22-page explanation of exactly what he has in mind. There are “four common-sense steps we can take right now,” according to the White House blog. The two steps meeting the most resistance are: 1. Closing background check loopholes to keep guns out of dangerous hands, and 2. Banning military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Highlights of his plan include requiring background checks for all gun sales, reinstating and strengthening the assault...

Retailers that specialize in guns have also done well. The stock price for Cabela's (CAB) surged 6% on Wednesday and has gained 20% over the last month. Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) notched up slightly, and has...

    Announcing anti-gun measures in front of a theatrical backdrop of children, itself a tactic associated with troubling historical precedents, President Barack Obama yesterday proposed specific legislative efforts related to guns for Congress to pass, and also outlined 23 measures he says can be implemented under executive authority. To set the stage for using children, the White House, along with a complicit anti-gun media, made a point of sharing letters from children, particularly those that resonate with the childish emotions of those who don’t know enough about guns to know they’re being manipulated. Case in point is the message from an...

    Gun control is back. President Obama on Wednesday unveiled a series of feel-good measures designed to play on the emotions of Americans saddened by the horrific shooting of 20 students at Sandy Hook Elementary School last month. Almost nothing he proposes to do would make anyone safer. Surrounding himself with children, Mr. Obama said, “This will be difficult. There will be pundits and politicians and special-interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical, all-out assault on liberty — not because that’s true, but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves.” The president said that...

    Disgusting. First Lance, now Manti Te’o.(snip)Manti hoaxed us about his dead girlfriend. Apparently she never actually existed; she was a composite. Seriously, who would do that?   I predict a future in politics for that boy…Manti, I mean. (is that racist?). Butt enough of that, we have bigger catfish to fry. Did you watch BO’s lecture on guns yesterday?     I know you’re going to get all over me about this - butt isn’t that little pawn girl on the left dressed rather inappropriately? I mean, really; a sleeveless dress? In January? To meet with the President? Who does...

    And so, we march A message from Most Rev. David M. O'Connell, C.M., Bishop of Trenton While standing in a grocery store checkout line recently, I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw the cover of Time magazine which read: “40 Years ago, abortion-rights activists won an epic victory with Roe v. Wade … they’ve been losing ever since.” Wow! That certainly is good news in a battle that those of us committed to the pro-life cause have been waging ever since the Supreme Court’s tragic decision in 1973. I bought the magazine and read the article which pointed...

    At least two American hostages are being held hostage at a gas plant in Algeria, but there's been no word on unfolding the situation from either President Barack Obama or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In fact, the only official word to come from the Obama administration is confirmation from the State Department that indeed Americans are being held hostage there. "[W]e condemn in strongest terms the terrorist attack on British Petroleum personnel and facilities at In Amenas, Algeria earlier today. We are obviously closely monitoring the situation. We’re in contact with Algerian authorities and our diplomatic counterparts in Algiers,...
  • Dem. Jerrold Nadler: "2 to 4 self-defense shots are enough," he's a jackass--Period

    Coach is Right ^ | 1/17/13 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    For liberals facts are never really important. “Truth” to liberals like Democrat New York City Congressman Jerrold Nadler is what he “feels” it is. Nadler has said: “Hunters don’t use large ammunition clips, and as far as self- defense, I mean who are you defending yourself against? If you’re defending yourself against a robber… two or three or four shots should be enough—period.” It’s a safe bet Nadler has never faced an assailant fueled by adrenalin drugs and alcohol. That doesn’t matter, of course, since no one will ever challenge Nadler on his supposed knowledge of the danger presented by...

    GOOGLE SEARCH: "Te'o Hoax" results in 120,000,000 references. GOOGLE SEARCH: "Obama fake birth certificate" results in 1,750,000 references Notre Dame star linebacker Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend story is trending around the world. It is a firestorm. We do not know exactly where this is going, but one of my first observations is marveling at the reporter feeding frenzy - both sports and regular news journalists. From what I understand, this is a good kid, from a good family, who is an Eagle Scout. He may have been really immature in relationships with the opposite sex, let a story get out...

    Why is Obama arming the enemies of freedom? This cat is dangerous and scary. Why the support of Islamic revolutions whose stated goal is sharia and a universal caliphate? What's he doing to protect the oppressed religious minorities in peril? America, time to remove your morphine drip. Wake up! More tanks for Egypt this year than the entire Marine Corps has...
