    Missouri may have just made the most monumental step towards freedom and individual liberty since the signing of the Bill of Rights. In an upcoming vote by Missouri’s state senate, the state is expected to pass a bill that would nullify ALL Federal gun laws and regulations, and make enforcement of those laws by federal officers within the State of Missouri a criminal offense. Republicans control both U.S. Senate seats and more than two-thirds of the seats in both the Missouri House and Senate. Like it’s predecessor, SB613, Bill SB367 and it’s companion, House Bill HB786, would prevent all state...

    A Missouri county GOP committee disinvited Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) to a dinner event next month, citing his recent vote against President Trump’s emergency declaration to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. Blunt joined 11 Senate Republicans, and all Democrats, in voting to block the declaration, prompting the Christian County Republican Central Committee to rescind his invitation to the local GOP’s Lincoln/Trump Day Dinner, scheduled for April 6 in Ozark. “I am so disappointed in you now that I can hardly speak,” Wanda Martens, the party committee’s events chairwoman, wrote in an email to Blunt’s office obtained by The...

    But Dixon was guilty of a very bizarre comment himself involving St. Patrick's Day. The tweet from 2012 sprang back into prominence on Sunday because of the "Hamilton" furor with many commentators claiming it refers to blacks raping drunken girls on St. Patrick’s Day.

    FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Two young men were found dead inside torched cars. Three others died of apparent suicides. Another collapsed on a bus, his death ruled an overdose. Six deaths, all involving men with connections to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, drew attention on social media and speculation in the activist community that something sinister was at play. Police say there is no evidence the deaths have anything to do with the protests stemming from a white police officer’s fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and that only two were homicides with no known link to the protests. But some...

    Conservatives are continuing to push back against Leftist Democrat attempts around the country and in Washington to impose new gun control legislation. In North Carolina, Cherokee County has become the latest jurisdiction to take a page from the illegal alien sanctuary movement and declare itself a “gun sanctuary.” The county becomes at least the 60th around the country where local governments have voiced opposition to encroaching gun control laws by stating they won’t actively enforce federal gun laws if they are in conflict with their definition of the Second Amendment’s “infringement” clause. The Cherokee County Board voted 3-2 in favor...

    Authorities in Missouri say a woman fatally shot her boyfriend at a home in Fulton on Thursday. According to Fox News, 37-year-old Kalesha Peterson later told police that she used a .38-caliber handgun while attempting to reenact a movie scene with 36-year-old David Dalton. She said the two had been drinking and she did not intend to actually shoot the victim, according to a statement from the Fulton Police Department. A medical examiner’s report indicated the victim died from a single gunshot wound to the head and police say they found two spent shell casings at the scene. “Peterson advised...

    I've never smoked pot and I don't like potheads. But THIS made even me angry. Nolan Sousley from Bolivar, Missouri has Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer --he's on his way to check out for good. Yet the cops barge in and toss his whole hospital room anyway. And the circumstances didn't prevent the police from humiliating him, either. You'd think he was maybe a dealer in a pimp outfit. Sousley ad a yuge bong, right? Nope. He playing some Hendrix and seen rolling some joints, right? Nope. He has some **pills that contain THC**. Yeah, for his PAIN. Cuz they're less...

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is working behind the scenes to boost the prospects of Neomi Rao, one of his former law clerks, to serve on a powerful federal appeals court in Washington — speaking privately with at least two Republican senators as she faces a contentious confirmation fight. Sen. Josh Hawley (Mo.) who publicly questioned how Rao would rule on issues such as abortion before supporting her in a key vote Thursday, disclosed this week that he had called Thomas. The justice has also phoned Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.), a sometimes deciding voice on controversial nominees. “He called me...

    denial_20190222214439 A federal judge rejected Planned Parenthood's request Friday for the court to block a state regulation that the organization says is preventing it from getting a license to perform local abortions. Comprehensive Health of Planned Parenthood Great Plains filed the renewed motion for a preliminary injunction in its case against the state of Missouri in December. The clinic's license to perform abortions expired in October after a federal judge declined to renew it.

    Former NBA star Charles Barkley, now an analyst on Inside the NBA, said that most of the blacks killed that he has known were killed by other blacks -- not by white cops -- which he finds morally outrageous because it is rarely discussed, and he stressed that "we need the cops" because, without them, "we'd be living in the wild, wild West!" During a July 12 discussion on the Dan Le Batard radio show about the police and black men, Barkley said, “We don’t have near the outrages we do when a white cop kills somebody. Dan, I’ve been...

    Charles Barkley of NBA fame said he’s not backtracking on his earlier characterization of Ferguson violent rioters and looters as “scumbags” — and moreover, the grand jury was quite right in not indicting policeman Darren Wilson. ... “We, as black people, we have a lot of crooks,” he said, CNN reported. “We can’t just wait until something like [the Brown shooting] happens. We have to look at ourselves in the mirror. There is a reason that they racially profile us in the way they do. Sometimes it is wrong. and sometimes it is right.” ... “To be burning peoples’ property,...

    Charles Barkley isn’t afraid to speak truth to power.  The man has integrity – a rare commodity these days. Case in point: with regard to Ferguson, Barkley has been unafraid to call rioters and looters “scumbags.”  Nor has he been stingy with praise for police who work in black neighborhoods. Yahoo News reports: Former NBA star Charles Barkley recently called Ferguson looters "scumbags," praised police officers who work in black neighborhoods, and said he supports the decision made by the grand jury not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the Michael Brown shooting. During an interview on 97.5 The...

    Not the first time he’s taken the “wrong side” of a shooting transformed in haste into a Teachable Moment about race relations in America. Once the death of Michael Brown was reduced to a microcosm of police discrimination against young black men, Darren Wilson had to be guilty or else that discrimination didn’t exist. The retreat to identity was the natural way to process an incident that was supposed to be simple but became too complex for easy narratives. No one told Barkley, though. “The true story came out from the grand jury testimony,” Barkley said, adding that he was...

They get blowback from opponents and so forth. I'm not talking about them.

    One thing you can say about former NBA star and current analyst Charles Barkley is that he is not afraid to speak his mind. Like many other celebrities, Barkley has spoken out about the decision by a Ferguson grand jury to not indict Officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown and the aftermath that has ensued. However, Barkley’s stance may come as a surprise to some. During an interview on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia with Mike Missanelli on Tuesday, the day after the decision was announced, Barkley was asked to share his thoughts on Ferguson. Missanelli asked...
