    The resident called 911 around two o'clock Friday afternoon to report the shooting. It happened in the 1000 block of north Firefly, near 119th street West and Central. Police say the resident shot at the door and the alleged burglars drove off. Police caught up with them a short time later and found a 22-year-old with a gun shot wound to the head. Two other 19-year-olds in the car were arrested. Police say the homeowner was protecting himself and will not be charged.

    The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent was accosted by several people on Van Buren Street around 1:30 a.m. this morning, said Thomas Fennelly, the county’s chief assistant prosecutor. The ICE agent was struck with fists and hands by multiple people, he added. The victim drew and discharged his weapon, striking two of the suspects, Fennelly said. Those two suspects were taken to University Hospital, where they’re in stable condition – and under arrest, the prosecutor added.
  • PPP admits hiding Colorado recall poll

    09/12/2013 1:25:07 PM PDT · by Impala64ssa · 7 replies
    A spokesman for Public Policy Polling admitted Wednesday to withholding a poll showing Colorado voters were going to recall State Sen. Angela Giron by a 12-point margin. The reason, according to PPP pollster Tom Jensen, was that “in a district that Barack Obama won by almost 20 points, I figured there was no way that could be right and made a rare decision not to release the poll.” When the votes were counted in race, the poll turned out to be on target, as Giron lost by 12 points. “We should have had more faith in our numbers,” Jensen said....
  • Luke Russert: 'Smart' Republicans on Ways & Means, Not 'God, Guns & Guts People'

    Call it Luke Russert's version of "bitter clingers" on steroids . . . In Russert's world, there are apparently two kinds of Republican congressmen. The "smart" ones—to be found on the Ways & Means Committee—and the others, whom he calls the "God, guns and guts people," presumably in reference to this book. Russert made his statement on today's Morning Joe, responding to Joe Scarborough's question as to whether Republicans would overplay their hand over the current scandals. According to Russert, Republicans chose well in holding today's hearing of IRS officials before the Ways & Means Committee because that's where the...
  • GOP Lawmakers Hope to Combat Ammunition Stockpiling by Gov’t Agencies With AMMO Act

    Republicans in the Senate and House are expected to introduce a joint bill Friday that would limit the amount of ammunition that federal agencies are allowed to buy and stockpile over the next six months, the Washington Free Beacon reports. The bill, titled the Ammunition Management for More Accountability or “AMMO” Act, is being proposed after several lawmakers have voiced concerns about some federal agencies, like the Department of Homeland Security, seemingly stockpiling large quantities of ammo. “DHS, for instance, has placed two-years worth of ammunition, or nearly 247 million rounds, in its inventory,” the Free Beacon notes. In a...

    To The Left On The 2nd Amendment: Give UpMarket Ticker Karl DenningerApril 25, 2013 It's over folks. Look, I know that "95% of America wants reasonable gun restrictions", or so the media says. So Obama says. So lots of people say. So after The Senate said "NO" to more Gun Control, after 80 years of so-called "gun control" that has not done one damn thing to actually reduce gun violence (and in the most-jackbooted areas it can be argued it has doubled homicides or more!) there should be thousands of people willing to march from McPherson Square in Washington DC...
  • Reps challenge DHS ammo buys, say agency using 1,000 more rounds per person than Army

    The hearing itself was unusual, as questions about the department's ammunition purchases until recently had bubbled largely under the radar -- on blogs and in the occasional news article. But as the Department of Homeland Security found itself publicly defending the purchases, lawmakers gradually showed more interest in the issue. Democratic Rep. John Tierney, D-Mass., at the opening of the hearing, ridiculed the concerns as "conspiracy theories" which have "no place" in the committee room. But Republicans said the purchases raise "serious" questions about waste and accountability. Chaffetz, who chairs one of the House oversight subcommittees holding the hearing Thursday,...

    <p>"One only wishes Wayne LaPierre and his NRA board of directors could be drafted to some of these [violent] scenes, where they would be required to put on booties and rubber gloves and help clean up the blood, the brains, and the chunks of intestine still containing the poor wads of half-digested food that were some innocent bystander’s last meal."</p>

    Karl Marx summed up Communism as “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” This is a good, pithy saying, which, in practice, has succeeded in bringing, upon those under its sway, misery, poverty, rape, torture, slavery, and death. For the saying implies but does not name the effective agency of its supposed utopia. The agency is called “The State,” and the motto, fleshed out, for the benefit of the easily confused must read “The State will take from each according to his ability: the State will give to each according to his needs.” “Needs and...

    One rule of thumb when hosting a radio talk show: don’t bring an audio clip on the air “cold,” i.e., without having heard it yourself. That’s probably especially true when you’re guest-hosting for a good friend and mentor. However, after Hot Air reader Tim R sent this to me near the end of the first hour of last night’s Hugh Hewitt show, I asked Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson to check it out for hour two as I was wrapping up an interview with John Eastman on the recess-appointment ruling. In the break, I asked, “Can we use that?” Duane answered, “Oh,...
