    Neil Steinberg of the Chicago Sun-Times decided last week to purchase an AR-15 following the Pulse night club shooting in Orlando, Florida. His purpose, he said, was to demonstrate how simple it was and to explore Illinois’ gun laws concerning assault weapons. When he bought the gun, Steinberg planned to sell it back to the store. However, his purchase was stopped by the gun store, which canceled the transaction during Illinois’ required 24-hour waiting period after discovering he had lied on his background check about his history of alcohol abuse and domestic violence. In his article, Steinberg admitted that while...

    Nine Georgia sheriff’s deputies were fired Friday following an investigation into the death of suspect Matthew Ajibade while in police custody. Ajibade, 21, was arrested in Savannah for domestic abuse on January 1. He was tased and chained to a chair in an isolation cell following an altercation with deputies that left three officers injured, one of them with a concussion. When the deputies next checked on Ajibade he was unresponsive. The autopsy was not released, pending possible criminal charges.

    Poor Carl Bernstein: he's suffering a bad bout of MSM nostalgia. He longs for the good old media days when the news was dominated by the likes of the New York Times, the Washington Post and the then three broadcast networks. They could slam Republicans with impunity, without any conservative media counterweight. In covering the shutdown, today's media culture, kvetches Carl, is just too darn fair and balanced in its treatment of those lying, McCarthyite Republicans. That's why President Obama and the congressional Dems' poll numbers are surprisingly bad. Such was Carl's complaint on today's Morning Joe. View the video...

    Alec Baldwin has said plenty of outrageous things over his career when untethered from a movie script, or teleprompter. Now Mr. Baldwin has his own live radio talk show. This may prove to be a goldmine of Rorschach like material, in the brave new scientific frontiers of narcissism. The far left actor has aspirations of political office. No not just a seat on a local school board, but it has been said that he would like a shot at the Mayors office of New York City. After the Mayors office, the sky is the limit. Well, if this radio show...

    Alec Baldwin isn’t afraid to let his anti-Republican ideals surface from time to time. On his new radio show (yes, he’s been given a show), “Here’s the Thing,” Baldwin decided to take some jabs at Ronald Reagan — a man who, like Baldwin, got his start in acting. Baldwin didn’t go easy on Reagan either. “He was a failed actor who in my business what happens is you become ripe and you fall from that tree and you go — and he went into this other field because it was a role for him to play,” he said. But he...

    So unfolds the latest chapter in Alec Baldwin’s ongoing flirtation with public office: The “30 Rock” actor told CNN’s Eliot Spitzer that he’s “very interested” in a political run. Of course, Baldwin knows there are plenty of obstacles in his way: He loves acting and his current state of New York is flooded with established political players. “It’s something that I’m very, very interested in,” said Baldwin in an interview set to air Wednesday night. He said what he wants to see from elected leaders is “people who have not lost sight about what the middle class in this country...

    Seriously, though—when did Congressman Charlie Wilson (D, OH-06) stop beating his wife? Moreover, why is the media covering this up? Two weeks ago, Big Government editor Mike Flynn obtained Belmont County (Ohio) court documents that revealed that Wilson repeatedly beat his wife Clara, to the point where she would be unable to stand. According to Wilson’s own testimony, he would regularly kick, slap, beat, and punch Clara, accusing her of adultery. Clara’s deposition states that Congressman Wilson punched her with enough force to knock the wind of her, leaving her beaten and bloodied, slumped up against the kitchen cabinet. To...

    San Diego Union-Tribune ^ | 4/27/07 | Jeffery M. Leving and Glenn Sacks
    Alec Baldwin’s angry, over-the-top voice-mail tirade at his daughter, Ireland, was clearly wrong. Unfortunately, while we’ve been wringing our hands over how bad Baldwin is, we’re ignoring the case’s central truth – Kim Basinger’s well-documented parental alienation campaign against Baldwin. Parental alienation often arises after a divorce, as one angry, vengeful parent tries to turn the children against the other parent, destroying the loving bonds the children and the target parent once enjoyed. Baldwin claims that his outburst occurred in the context of Basinger alienating Ireland and trying to drive him out of his daughter’s life. This claim appears to...

The actor, in a transcript provided to The Associated Press by "The View," said that he also wanted to quit "30 Rock" so the sitcom and the hundreds who work on it wouldn't "be hurt...

Lamont has criticized Lieberman for supporting a bill that gave a federal court jurisdiction to consider reinserting Schiavo's feeding tube. The 39-year-old Florida woman had been in a vegetative state. Her husband, Michael, said she would want to die and eventually won the right to let her do so. Michael Schiavo has been campaigning against government intrusion around the country. He has created a political action committee that is supporting...

    By now, most people around politics know that former New York Republican Mayor Rudy Giuliani would be seeking the nomination for president of the United States. A recent column by Washington's premiere political pundit, Robert Novak, only underlines the obvious: The question is not If Giuliani runs, but When he openly declares that he is running. Though Novak does not say when, I would speculate that Giuliani will announce by the end of this year. A recent Gallup Poll asked the question of its participants: Who they would opt for as the Republican front runner in the 2008 presidential election?...

Alec Baldwin may have requested last year that his ex-wife, Kim Basinger, be forced to undergo psychological evaluation, but a Los Angeles court has instead ordered the 48-year-old actor to consult a therapist before he is allowed extra visits with his 10-year-old daughter, Ireland, L.A. City News Service reported Friday. Though neither member of the estranged pair was in court today, L.A. Superior Court Commissioner Maren E. Nelson gave Baldwin a week to consider whether he would allow a sit-down with a court-appointed psychologist. Nelson said in court that she wants a professional to help judge whether...

The ad for sleeveless men's T-shirts appeared in one of Building 19's quirky circulars that promote "good stuff cheap." The shirts are sometimes referred to in slang as "wife beaters," but in this case the term actually wound up in the flier -- angering many customers and women's groups. Ellis says...

Although "emaciated," Schiavo is "still communicating," Schindler said, "... And she's responding to me." Schindler spoke to reporters shortly before 1 p.m. outside the Woodside Hospice, where Schiavo is being cared for. Several days ago, a family spokesman reported that Terri's mother,...

    After state lawmakers passed ''Terri's Law'' in 2003, the Florida Supreme Court struck it down as unconstitutional. But that rebuke hasn't stopped lawmakers from rushing to prepare other bills this year in an attempt to keep Terri Schiavo on a feeding tube and undermine the authority of Florida courts. There indeed may be room to improve protections for people who are incapacitated or cannot communicate their medical wishes, but changes to law should be debated in a deliberate fashion. Policy that would have life-and-death implications shouldn't be rushed -- not through the Florida Legislature nor Congress. Yet that is what...

The Cuban-born Canseco suggests in the book that he often was singled out for media criticism because he was a minority. Ripken, he says,...
