  • Liberals’ gun control blame game is out of control

    The bodies of the innocent were still strewn on the Las Vegas pavement and the motive of the shooter was a mystery, but the media-political confederacy was certain about who was to blame. It was American society or, more precisely, those people who don’t realize that the Second Amendment isn’t worth the parchment it’s written on. Lefty pols had already tweeted their way into the bloody scrum, and that gave the Democratic media all the talking points they needed. Three of the first four questions at Monday’s White House press briefing were about gun control, as were more than half...

    The same week that a statue of Robert E. Lee led to the death of an innocent woman in Charlottesville, Virginia, I watched him oink and squeal in a race for the fate of the country. Lee, this time, was a piglet—part of Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede, a Medieval Times–style dine-in attraction where seven nights a week and at occasional weekend matinees, the South rises again.

    You knew the MSM would turn the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise and others into a gun-control story. And sure enough, on MSNBC just now, terrorism "expert" Malcolm Nance said: “The most important thing that we need to understand from this is, this is what happens when you have an over-proliferation of guns. And it’s to be expected to a certain extent.” View the video here.

    democrats are totally out of control of late. They continue to erode the dignity of Congress, sitting on the floor in protest and throwing unending tantrums. In short, they're aholes. It's all part of the plan. But for a moment, let's put the shoes on the other feet. What if Republicans and conservatives acted in a similar manner? How would the media react? How would America react? What if Republicans broke out in song singing "Papa was a rolling stone" every time obama appeared before Congress? Democrats in Congress reacted to the passing of Donald Trump's healthcare act by furiously trolling Republican...

    A crowd of around forty people gathered on Goodell Lawn quickly turned into a march of more than a hundred people protesting the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency of the United States. Carrying paper signs reading “love trumps hate,” students gathered in a circle came to the center to talk about the next steps for organizing against Trump’s inauguration. “My mind is a mess right now. The whole country is a mess,” said Kyle Hartman, theater major. “We are fighting for our lives and that’s what needs to be heard.” Hartman, who said he is a gay white...

    Commentators in major national newspapers in Scotland are aghast. A 100-member youth choir from a Southern Baptist church in Plano, Texas gave a free concert at a shopping center in Edinburgh. The journalists compared this event to Nazi or ISIS propaganda. One asserted: “as a nation we should be stating clearly: bigots are not welcome here.” Scotland is the land of John Knox, the great Scotts reformer (1513–72), and of the young, deeply spiritual Robert Murray McCheyne (1813–43) who declared: “The Christian is a person who makes it easy for others to believe in God.” Now Scotland is a land...

    Emma Sulkowicz, also known as "Mattress Girl," carried around a mattress at Columbia University saying she was sexually assaulted. The problem with that is Ms. Sulkowicz had no evidence and the man that she accused was not arrested or charged because of "lack of evidence" and "lack of reasonable suspicion." Even Sulkowicz herself admitted the college found no evidence to back up her claims, stating, "The University closed the case in November of my junior year saying he is not responsible for any... rapes." And on top of that, Sulkowicz decided not to pursue charges. Since then, the person she...

    VIDEO: De Blasio defends working on national issues away from NYC Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio defended his involvement in national issues with the progressive agenda to combat income equality amid criticism of spending too much time outside of the city. De Blasio also said he agrees “entirely” with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on trade. “I think it’s obvious the issues that we’re talking about here have a huge impact on the people of New York City and when you think about what’s happening in our city – 46 percent of the people of our city at...

    Valerie Plame doesn't deny that blowing the cover of the CIA station chief in Afghanistan is a serious matter. It's just that, discussing the issue at a Wednesday evening forum sponsored by The Atlantic, Plame seemed to view the outing of the CIA's top spy on the front lines in the Afghan war as more of an embarrassment than an outrage. "My understanding is … it was a military aide who compiled this list of those that were greeting the president when he came," Plame said. "Colossally stupid, but I think it was inadvertent. It was an error … really...

    State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki was openly mocked by the assembled press corps Thursday after saying President Obama “doesn’t give himself enough credit for what he’s done around the world.” Associated Press reporter Matt Lee asked sarcastically whether he deserved 200 percent credit, while another one wondered for what “accomplishments” Psaki meant he deserves more praise. “For engagement initiatives like Iran, what we’ve done on Ukraine, efforts to dive in and engage around the world,” she said. “I mean, Russia has still annexed Crimea,” another reporter asked. “I mean, Iran — there’s ongoing negotiations, but is that the success here...

    David Tran fled communist Vietnam in December 1978 on the Huey Fong, a Panamanian freighter that carried Tran and more than 3,000 other refugees to freedom. According to a 2013 profile in the LA TImes, Tran and his family settled in Los Angeles, where he soon realized he couldn’t find work or a hot sauce that he liked. Tran began to make his own hot sauce and sold it in Chinatown. He named it after its place of origin (Si Racha, Thailand) and started a company in 1980, Huy Fong, which he named after the freighter that brought him to the United...

    Disgraceful: Top Democrats Add Insult to Injury on Benghazi May 2, 2014 By Todd Cefaratti The recent release of the Benghazi emails has Democrats scurrying for cover from the political fallout and in doing so, many are showing their true colors. Former National Security Council (NSC) spokesman Tommy Vietor spoke with Fox News’ Bret Baier on Thursday and downplayed the seriousness of the emails that has rocked the political establishment. When asked about details pertaining to his own involvement in altering the Benghazi talking points to pain President Obama in a more-favorable light, the former Obama staffer flippantly replied, “Dude,...

    Uncle Sam’s Plantation is an incisive look at how government manipulates, controls, and ultimately devastates the lives of the poor—and what Americans must do to stop it. Once a hustler and welfare addict who was chewed up and spit out by the ruthless welfare system, Star Parker sheds much needed light on the bungled bureaucratic attempts to end poverty and reveals the insidious deceptions perpetrated by self-serving politicians. “Star Parker rocks the world. She is an iconoclast that must be listened to and reckoned with.” ―Sean Hannity “Star Parker’s important new book helps advance the understanding—critical for all Americans—that prosperity...

    In last week’s ruling in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission , the Supreme Court was not a mere instrument so much as a blowtorch, searing a hole in the fabric of our fragile democracy. The American experiment seems to be run by a smaller and smaller control group as billionaires — like the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson — get expanding seats at the shrinking political table. NASCAR drivers wear the corporate logos of their sponsors on their suits. The justices who sided with plutocracy ought to wear sponsorship logos on their robes, too.

The team assignment stated that the Bill of Rights is “outdated and may not remain in its current form any longer.” Here is a copy of the assignment:CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE PHOTO The mother who spoke up said she was particularly troubled by the fact that her daughter’s Sixth Grade History class had received no prior training in civics or how to amend the Constitution, which may...

    (CNSNews.com) - Although the tea party's influence is "undeniable," it is not inevitable -- and it must be crushed for the good of the nation, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) argued in a long political speech on Thursday. "They've won elections, stymied Democratic priorities and taken a sledgehammer to programs that are important to tens of millions of Americans," he complained. Among other recommendations, Schumer suggested an IRS crackdown on funding for tea party groups. "We have to look at electoral reform," he said. "Our very electoral structure has been rigged to favor tea party candidates in Republican primaries, even when...

    Pro-life Republican candidates can neutralize their Democratic opponents’ “war on women” attacks by fighting back, says Ellen Barrosse, author of a resolution unanimously adopted by the party's Resolutions Committee Wednesday. The resolution was submitted by Barrosse, a committeewoman from Delaware, the same day the Republican National Committee (RNC) officially joined the annual March for Life in Washington for the first time. Barrosse’s resolution states: “Candidates who stay silent on pro-life issues do not identify with key voters, fail to alert voters to Democrats’ extreme pro-abortion stances, and have lost their elections.” …
