    Fox News anchor Jon Scott is being crucified by liberal media for making a blunt observation about Muslims on Easter Sunday. Scott made the remarks on Fox & Friends while discussing “Homeland” star Mandy Patinkin, who admitted that the show made a deliberate effort to portray white men as the bad guys in season 6. Patinkin said “Homeland” executives pushed their pro-Islam agenda after being slammed for their realistic portrayals of Muslim terrorists in previous seasons (it also had Muslim heroes, so the PC police wouldn’t whine). That’s when the usually mild-mannered Jon Scott remarked: “They’re gonna run the Boston...

  • Bill Maher: It’s ‘Ridiculous,’ ‘Quaint’ & ‘Nonsensical’ to Think 2nd Amendment Can Prevent Tyranny

    HBO host Bill Maher had MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell as one of his guests on “Real Time” Friday night, and the two were adamant that the Second Amendment cannot protect against tyranny (and that such a conversation shouldn’t even really be happening in this age). After pointing out the poll where 44% of Republicans said an armed revolution might be necessary in order to protect liberties in the next few years, compared to 18% of Democrats, Maher said: “Can we get to, first of all, how ridiculous it is for people to think that the Second Amendment protects them from tyranny....

    A freshman state legislator joined a Republican field seeking a U.S. Senate seat Thursday, setting his sights on a robust Minnesota network for presidential candidate Ron Paul as a possible route to the party nomination. State Rep. Kurt Bills announced his campaign on a busy intersection in Rosemount, just up the street from a high school where he teaches an early morning economics course before heading to the state Capitol each day. The former city council member said he'd make the nation's debt and deficit the focus of his campaign, though he wouldn't offer hints of how he'd solve it....

    More than 400 veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will be storming Capitol Hill on Tuesday in support of the military operations in Iraq. Vets for Freedom, a nonpartisan, not-for-profit Washington organization composed of combat veterans, set up more than 300 meetings with House and Senate lawmakers. The group supports keeping U.S. troops in Iraq. The visits coincide with much-awaited testimony from Gen. David Petraeus on the situation in Iraq, and will be jump-started by way of a press conference Tuesday with presumptive GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), the ranking Republican on the Armed Services panel....

    On Capitol Hill, politicians hear only those who get loud enough to cause a ruckus on their turf. Many times, these are anti-war groups like Code Pink or 9/11 “truthers”. That’s why 40 Vets for Freedom members from across the country (with only four days notice) stormed the Hill on July 17 and refused to be silenced. Vets for Freedom (VFF) is a group of nearly 15,000 veterans -- 7,000 of whom are Iraq and Afghanistan vets and some that are currently deployed. One of the group’s key purposes, according to news reports, is to advocate that Republican leadership not...
