    HOUSTON - Houston police are investigating a bizarre home invasion that ended with a man's death, officials said. Police were called to the scene around 2:30 a.m. Sunday in the 13100 block of North Bellaire Estates for a report of a home invasion. When officials arrived on the scene, they learned that the now-deceased man had broken into the home and was seen by the homeowner entering his daughter's room. Police said the father confronted the man and wrestled to get the man's gun away from him. The father was able to get the man's gun and shoot him, officials...
  • Democrats Try Wooing Ones Who Got Away: White Men

    ROYAL OAK, Mich. — Frank Houston knows something about the longtime estrangement of white men from the Democratic Party. His family roots are in nearby Macomb County, the symbolic home of working-class Reagan Democrats who, distressed by economic and social tumult, decided a liberal Democratic Party had left them, not the other way around. Mr. Houston grew up in the 1980s liking Ronald Reagan but idolizing Alex P. Keaton, the fictional Republican teenage son of former hippies who, played by Michael J. Fox on the television series “Family Ties,” comically captured the nation’s conservative shift. But over time, Mr. Houston...
  • Jim Carrey's pro-abortion tweet backfires: 'You blessed the pro-life movement with this'

    Actor Jim Carrey's latest tweet took a shot at Alabama's new abortion law, but it seemed to backfire, drawing praise from pro-lifers instead. The "Dumb and Dumber" star tweeted an image Saturday of his artwork depicting Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, who signed one of the strictest anti-abortion laws in the nation, as a fully formed preborn baby being aborted from the womb. "I think If (sic) you're going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama," Carrey wrote. The politically charged depiction garnered some unlikely responses from the right. "Thank you for...

  • Multiple Polls: Trump Popularity Soars to Highest Level, Trust In Media Tanks To Lowest

    The events in the above headline are not unrelated. Once the literally “no news” two-year news cycle of Trump-Russia collusion ended with the thump of the Mueller report finding no collusion and not recommending any obstruction of justice charges, it turns out Americans are OK with President Trump. More than OK. The Zogby Poll has Trump’s job approval at 51%, 3 points above Obama’s in the same poll at the same point in his first term. Again, it cannot be said enough, this is after two years of media hyperventilating over something that did not happen. Maybe more interesting: A...

    Barack Obama is desperate. His legacy, such as it was, has been slowly dismantled by President Trump and the GOP. The media will have you believe there is a major backlash and point to Pelosi winning the House, but they ignore the GOP picked up seats in the Senate. No, the country is still divided and the 2020 election will most probably determine the course of the country for the next twenty years. So Barack is getting involved with a new plan to stop Trump. It will fail. Because America gambled on Obama and he did not follow through on...

    How the Democratic Party’s “Resistance” and Trump Derangement Syndrome are inciting a violent war against Republicans and conservatives. While the left side of the political spectrum responded to the mass shooting in Las Vegas with fevered calls for gun controls, which even Democrats admit would not have prevented the massacre, they have done nothing to rein in their hateful rhetoric demonizing Trump supporters and providing clear incitements to deranged individuals like Stephen Paddock to commit heinous acts of violence. Leftist celebrity Nancy Sinatra notoriously tweeted “Murderous members of NRA should face firing squad” – to express her politically correct assumption...

    Sunday’s Las Vegas shooting has so far left over 50 dead and more than 500 injured, marking this as the most deadly shooting in modern history. However, according to a CBS legal executive, these victims had it coming. As first reported by the Daily Caller, Hayley Geftman-Gold, a top legal executive at CBS, posted on Facebook that attendees of the country music concert had it coming, since country music fans are often Republican gun owners. In Geftman-Gold’s post, she seemingly references Sandy Hook, which she blames on Republicans, and uses this as her reasoning that Jason Aldean fans deserved to...

    A top legal executive at CBS, Hayley Geftman-Gold, said she “is not even sympathetic” for the victims of the shooting at a country music festival at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas Sunday night. “If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing,” wrote Geftman-Gold on Facebook, perhaps referring to Sandy Hook on Facebook. “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”

    President Trump on Sunday criticized Fox News, accusing the network of "wasting airtime" over its coverage of South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and other Democratic 2020 contenders. "Hard to believe that @FoxNews is wasting airtime on Mayor Pete, as Chris Wallace likes to call him," he wrote, referring to Buttigieg and the Fox News host. Fox News is scheduled to host a town hall with Buttigieg on Sunday night. Trump: "They forgot the people who got them there. Chris Wallace said, 'I actually think, whether you like his opinions or not, that Mayor Pete has a lot of substance...fascinating...

    Michael Lindell invested $1 million into a new film from the makers behind 'God's Not Dead,' and plans to keep spending on projects that fit his message. There's a new film financier around town: the unapologetic Trump-loving, born-again Christian conservative founder of My Pillow, who is sure to stand out in Hollywood. Michael Lindell, worth an estimated $300 million, tells The Hollywood Reporter he has plowed $1 million into Unplanned, an upcoming feature that was shot in secret due to its critical take on Planned Parenthood. His investment amounts to one-sixth the entire production budget of Unplanned, which comes from...

    “There’s this peace and inner calm that you need when shooting,” Michele Meyenberger says as the sound of gun fire echoes through the clubhouse. A magazine of ammunition for her Sturmgewehr 90, a modified semi-automatic rifle issued by the Swiss army, sits on the table as Meyenberger eyes the clock, knowing that it’s almost her turn on the shooting range. The 30-year-old is one of dozens of local rifle owners who have traveled to the Swiss village of Märwil for a shooting festival — where participants take aim at what seems like an impossibly small target located 300 meters (984...

    RUSH: We had a call, I don’t know, about an hour ago. It was from a gentleman who wanted to know if there is — and if there is, who — a singular person or organization that gives the Democrat Party its orders. Its marching orders, its talking points, its agenda on legislative items and that kind of thing. Is there one person? The reason he asked is because they’re all saying the same thing all the time, and he’s curious how that happens, and particularly in the media. You know, we have shared with you… We started it.

    Another week, another school shooting — this time, at a Colorado middle school, where an 18-year-old alleged shooter, and an alleged juvenile accomplice, killed one student. Does anyone think it a coincidence that the more Democrats have infiltrated and infested our culture and our industries, the more our youths commit cold-blooded murder? America is now witnessing what unchecked and unfettered Democrat influence and indoctrination begat. Death, violence, injury, and destruction are all inherent in the political terrorism of "it takes a village," "democratic socialism," and "fundamental transformation." Why do kids kill kids?The poisoning of our youth's hearts, souls, and minds...

    Indianapolis Mayor Pete Buttigieg is probably one of the longest-shots for president actually getting any media attention right now. The only longer shot I can think of is the mayor Miramar who seems to think he has a chance. Anyway, Buttigieg is running and is getting at least some media attention, enough so that one can’t rule him out as a candidate completely. The fact that he’s following Sen. Cory Booker’s lead on guns, however, just might.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – There’s a major challenge to New Jersey’s gun control regime which could get taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court. A decision will be made on May 23rd. The Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Club previously initiated Rogers v. Grewal, a challenge to New Jersey’s restriction on carry licenses, and the case has worked its way through the federal judiciary. Next week, the Supreme Court will finally hold a conference at which time the Justices will sit around a giant conference table, discuss the points of law implicated by cases awaiting action, and ultimately vote...

    The case of two anti-Trump leftists, one of whom is transgender, who shot up a school in Denver last week has been placed under seal by a judge, banning the public from seeing it. Devon Erickson, 18, and Alec McKinney, 16, opened fire on two classrooms at the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) charter school in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, on May 7, killing one student and injuring eight others. 16-year-old Alec McKinney identifies as male but is biologically female, having been born Maya Elizabeth McKinney. Following the shooting, it emerged that his accomplice Erickson had posted anti-Christian and anti-Trump...
