  • Rep. Gohmert: If Orlando Was About Guns, Then 'Boston Was About a Pressure Cooker'(video)

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) called it "outrageous" that House Democrats would grab microphones and prevent fellow lawmakers from conducting business in violation of House rules, all to make a point about gun control, which is really beside the point, he said: "And when people go on for 12 hours, saying things, 'It's about guns,' then that means Boston was about a pressure cooker. It wasn't. Both of them were about radical Islam," Gohmert told Fox News's Charles Payne. "And the reason people died unnecessarily is because this FBI, this Justice Department, this Homeland Security has purged their training materials, so...

    Herewith, a simple way to understand the destructive failure of most reading instruction in the United States. Consider our eyes. Their purpose is to grasp quickly what objects are: food or predator, useful or irrelevant? This is often a matter of life and death. How do eyes do their job? Eyes twitch, jerk, and flick rapidly from detail to detail in order to identify an object. There are no built-in sequences, no shortcuts. The eyes must twitch – perhaps dozens of times – until a positive identification is made. The technical term for these twitches is a saccade (which rhymes...

She got down on her knees before Jesus to ask something of Him. 21 He said to her, “What do you want?” She said, “Say that my two sons may sit, one at Your right side and one at Your left side, when You are King.” 22 Jesus said to her, “You do not know what you are asking.

    FORT WORTH, Texas – Texas authorities say two people are dead and several others injured following a shooting outside a nonprofit dance studio in Fort Worth. Fort Worth Police Spokesman Daniel Segura says in a statement Saturday that East Division officers responded to reports of a shooting at Studio 74's Fort Worth address. He says arriving officers discovered one victim dead outside the studio. Several others were shot and transported to hospitals. Segura says one victim died at the hospital as a result of his injuries. No further information was immediately available. An investigation is ongoing.

    I reported previously how Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) subordinated his prior honorable service in our armed forces to his party's official position on the Second Amendment. This is particularly disappointing because, while we expect somebody like Harry Reid to lie about the difference between military assault rifles and the kinds of rifles that are available to civilians, obfuscation and misrepresentation are not the kind of conduct we expect from a former Marine officer. Nate Bethea similarly begins his attack on the Second Amendment by misrepresenting what is and is not an "assault rifle." "I could buy that rifle [M-4] online,...

This essay appears in Mark Steyn's Passing Parade: Francis Crick is dead and gone. He has certainly not "passed on" - and, if he has, he'll be extremely annoyed about it. As a 12-year old English schoolboy, he decided he was an atheist, and for much of the rest of his life worked hard to disprove the existence of the soul. In...

    It is hard to believe that Attorney General Loretta Lynch is actually making her predecessor, Eric Holder, the race bating liberal, look good. It is quite an accomplishment to be worse than Holder, but Lynch has achieved that goal in record time, especially with her lame brained response to the terrorist attack in Orlando. In the early morning hours of the Pulse nightclub attack, Jihadist Omar Mateen made it quite evident in his 911 calls and his maniacal ravings to police negotiators that he killed 49 innocent people as an act of faithfulness to the Islamic State terrorist organization.

    It started with the best of intentions. In WWII, Western Europeans couldn't help but be impressed by the sheer numbers of American troops, equipment, and supplies moving through their countries, all under one flag and all speaking one language. After the war, various politicians in Western Europe noted how their continent and the United States - though both were roughly the same population, one had free travel for goods and people while the other didn't - and asked, why can't we do that here? And so the grand EU idea was slowly borne, and envious attempt to copy the US...

    The ancient Canaanites living in Gath some 5,000 years ago weren't sacrificing their own livestock to appease the gods. They were importing animals from ancient Egypt, archaeologists have now proven. A donkey, as well as some sheep and goats whose remains were found in Early Bronze Age layers at Gath dating to 4900 years ago turn out to have been born and bred in the Nile valley.The discovery at the archaeological site of Tell el-Safi shows that animals were part of the extensive trading relations between the Old Kingdom of Egypt and Early Bronze Age Canaan (circa 2900-2500 BCE)....

He said: “Of course a new prime minister must be appointed, that will probably require a few days but this is quite urgent.

    Explanation: Near the horizon the Full Moon often seems to loom large, swollen in appearance by the famous Moon illusion. But timelapse images demonstrate that the Moon's apparent size doesn't really change as it climbs toward the zenith. Its color does, though. Recording a frame every 10 seconds, this image shows how dramatic that color change can be. The composite follows a solstice Full Moon climbing above a rugged horizon over northwestern Indiana. A shrinking line-of-sight through planet Earth's dense and dusty atmosphere shifted the moonlight from strawberry red through honey-colored and paler yellowish hues. That change seems appropriate for...

    Maine Gov. Paul LePage is challenging the federal government over how to administer the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps. Under the guise of reforming SNAP, Maine’s Republican governor wants to monitor what poor people eat and drink. The governor wants to create a state-based “food-police” to control what Maine’s poorest citizens put in their grocery bags. In pushing for the food ban, the governor is picking a page right out of the Democratic playbook. LePage impugns the motives of the opposition by invoking the Left’s favorite bogeyman – American businesses. The governor said that he...

    The original Magna Carta was a charter agreed to by King John of England in 1215. It just celebrated its 801st anniversary. So no, I wasn’t there. But that charter has become part of an important, iconic, political myth that the deal between an unpopular king and rebellious barons marked the beginning of individual English freedoms, personal liberties, and due-process protection of individuals under the law. Magna Carta has also been cited as providing the essential foundation for the contemporary powers of Parliament and legal principles such as habeas corpus. That’s the mythology, and it’s an important one. So while...

Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles Gorder Jr. revealed the grand jury hearing in court papers Thursday explaining the government's desire to keep its memorandum about the inspector general's investigation into the FBI's handling of the Jan. 26 shooting out of the hands of defense lawyers.

    Donald Trump is campaigning like it’s 1884. That’s a good thing. His speech on Wednesday sliced open new wounds in the Clinton campaign. He has spent weeks calling Hillary Clinton “Crooked Hillary,” but for the first time since the mid-1990s, someone went after the Clintons for their cronyism and corruption. This is only the beginning, and if Trump were smart—he has proven to be adept at finding the oppositions weak points and relentlessly pulverizing them—he would adopt the 1884 playbook from the Democratic Party and call himself “Donald the Good”, with a pledge to clean up corruption in Washington, D.C....

    In 2004 Congress passed the Weldon amendment, which said that no state can discriminate against a healthcare entity because it refuses to participate in abortions. The language includes states discriminating against a health plan that decides not to cover abortion. If the state does, according to the amendment, it will lose its federal funding. In August 2014, California informed its health insurers that they would no longer be allowed to offer health plans that exclude elective abortions. Insurers complied, as one might expect, and suddenly, no one in California could purchase health insurance that didn't pay for the death of...

    Paul Krugman may understand the Democratic Party better than most Democrats do. The New York Times editorial writer describes Democrats as a “coalition of social groups, from teachers’ unions to Planned Parenthood, seeking specific benefits from government action.” More often than not, what these groups want from government is at someone else’s expense.That isn’t just a characteristic of the party. That’s what the Democratic Party is.There are also groups that support Republicans: gun owners, small business owners, evangelicals, etc. But Republican groups tend to not want anything from government. More often than not they just want to be left alone....

She has presented as her evidence Bergoglio’s “heresies, blasphemies and antichristological actions,” as well as a canonical detail that, she correctly points out, no one is yet talking about. She has asked for responses. Now, no one will accuse me of being a Francis apologist, but I cannot really completely agree with Ann’s...

    There's panic in the skyscrapers. A popular revolution against globalism is underway, and Britain has struck the first blow. To the dismay of political, financial, and media elites, the country has chosen to put identity and sovereignty above a plus-one-or-minus-one change in GDP, and vote to leave the hated European Union. As with the USSR, the attempt to superimpose a manufactured civic identity over proud nation-states with rich and complex histories has run against the grain of human nature. The elites, so wrapped up in statecraft and economics, never paused to consider basic human psychology. It’s not just Britain, you...

Consequently, he who molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes or pronounces decisions. Donald Trump and the pro-Brexit politicians such as Boris Johnson have benefitted from Lincoln’s assertion. Others haven’t learned from it. Some even insist on addressing public sentiment from a rational perspective. They throw facts and arguments at the people, thinking they can change public mood with information. Public sentiment is not rational, it’s emotional. I hate to point out the obvious...

The Vice President’s comments echo those of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who warned that Japan and South Korea acquiring nuclear weapons “is going to happen anyway” in controversial remarks issued in March. Japanese government officials and media responded to Trump’s comments much more severely than they have to Biden’s. “What...

There was an oven in the shop that the archaeologists believe may have been used to make bronze objects. There is evidence that the shop was targeted by looters seeking treasure after the eruption, but they apparently missed the gold coins and the gold-leaf-foil, flower-shaped pendant. Archaeologists have been excavating a second...

Obama urged Britain to remain in the EU when he visited London in April and warned that a trade agreement between the two countries would not happen anytime soon if Britain left the bloc.
