    Gun Watch ^ | 1 October, 2014 | Dean Weingarten
    Don Hosmer Last year, on the way the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC), I had an unexpected encounter at a diner in central Texas.   I rode my motorcycle to that GRPC.   This year I took my truck to the GRPC in Chicago.   I have friends and family in Wisconsin that I wanted to visit, and some items that would have been less comfortable to carry on a motorcycle.    This year the encounter happened after the conference. I was traveling up I-90/94 when I decided to stop for dinner on the northern edge of the Wisconsin Dells.  Last  year I...

    Julie Hinds, a reporter for Gannett Michigan, suggests why she thinks the latest Batman movie was filmed in Detroit, saying the despair and hope of the city offer a juxtaposition for the filmmakers: “Those two sides of Detroit may be one of the factors that make it an appropriate location for ‘Batman v. Superman,’ a cinematic collision between two very different superheros (sic),” Hinds wrote. “Affleck's brooding, mortal Batman and Henry Cavill's outer-space immigrant Superman.” For the Record says: It was either that, or something else Hinds failed to even mention in her story — the Superman-Batman movie was handed...

    On July 30, 1974, President Nixon released the White House tape recordings to comply with a U.S. Supreme Court order. A day earlier, the House Judiciary Committee approved Articles of Impeachment. Article 2 dealt with “abuse of power.” The first impeachment count, 40 years ago, complained that the President attempted to use the Internal Revenue Service to harass his enemies. (1) He has, acting personally and through his subordinated and agents,endeavored to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposes not authorized by law,...

Talking to "CBS This Morning," Dr. David Agus explained how to keep yourself and your children safe, as well as symptoms of the deadly disease... The interview was going normally, until Dr. Agus was asked, "So we have the Ebola virus in Africa and we now have this virus. What's going on?" This was his response: “Well, the world is flat.

    The story of the Democrats (available in its entirety free; see details below) continues by exposing Andrew Jackson as the fake he was. The Trail of Tears Perhaps the worst instance of Jackson’s willingness to emulate the bellicose traditions of European empires was the genocide of the Cherokee Nation known as the Trail of Tears. It was carried out under the Indian Removal Act which was championed by Georgia Democrat Senator John Forsyth. Under its provisions the US Army would force the Cherokees to walk from as far away as North Carolina to modern day Oklahoma. The Bataan-like march killed...

    The Seattle City Council passed a new ordinance that will fine people for throwing away too much food. The concern is that this discarded food should be composted rather than just trashed. “Our growth rate for recycling has stalled,” complained Council member Sally Bagshaw. “The notion of some city residents that they need not participate in this effort is erroneous. A successful program requires the full compliance of every citizen.” To enforce the stricter rules the City will empower trash collectors to examine a family’s discards to determine whether any items found could have been recycled. “We’ve taken voluntary obedience...

    Just as today’s opinion makers seek to divorce Islam from its impact — for example brutal conquest, forced conversion, religiously-sanctioned sex slavery, beheadings — past opinion makers worked equally hard to divorce communism from its impact — for example, brutal conquest, forced collectivization, concentration camps or gulags, mass murder. And this worked. …Unlike Nazism, Communism has never been judged guilty or even held responsible for the carnage and suffering it has caused. On the contrary, it remains a source of liberal, statist ideas... ...these belief systems [Communism and Islamic supremacism], both hostile to our Constitutional liberties remain protected by silence....

    Detroit Free Press Columnist Rochelle Riley laments “Oh, if only the children of Detroit were pieces of art” in a column in which she claims no leaders want to talk about education in Detroit. The column implies that as the city goes through bankruptcy, the school system is not getting the proper amount of attention. For the Record says: The state of Michigan is devoting about $440 more per-pupil in state funds to Detroit Public Schools in 2013-14 compared to five years ago. In 2013-14, the state poured $378.5 million into DPS, or about $7,802 per student. In 2008-09, that...

Judge Tonya Parker (Dallas County) Now, a Texas judge has an answer to that, saying she will not marry straight couples until gay marriage is legal in the state. Judge Tonya Parker of Dallas County told the Dallas Voice that she respectfully tells couples why she can’t conduct their marriage ceremony: “I'm sorry.

"Since 1996, black unemployment has doubled and the poverty rate for blacks has skyrocketed. Mary hasn't helped us all," says Guillory. "So on November 4, let's send her back home to her father's house or to her mansion in Washington, D.C., or wherever the heck she lives." The Republican pol doesn't mince words as he argues that blacks are "just a vote" to Landrieu and Democrats. Watch the video below:

    Drilling in the Kara Sea will continue into next year, even if sanctions prevent US firm ExxonMobil from participating, Russia’s Deputy Energy Minister Kirill Molotsov said Monday. According to Molotsov, Russia can independently go ahead with the necessary drilling in the Kara Sea in 2015 with the help of drilling platforms owned by Russian companies. Russia’s largest oil company, Rosneft has opened a large deposit of oil and gas in the area. "In total, we have about eight units of 100 percent Russian-owned platforms,” the deputy energy minister said. In the event Exxon leaves, work in the Arctic will continue,...

What could rightly be described as Patient Zero on U.S. soil arrived in Dallas, and is being held in isolation at Texas Presbyterian Hospital.

    President Obama blamed America’s intelligence agencies for failing to properly access the dangers of a rising ISIS. In leaked reports, the CIA has released information suggesting that Obama was warned about ISIS increasing in strength as early as before the 2012 election. Other information leaked in the past few days suggest the President doesn’t bother attending more than half of his intelligence briefings. The public is stuck deciding who is telling the truth here because someone must be lying. Either the President was warned and made the decision not to confront ISIS while they were still weak or our intelligence...

    President Obama has finally achieved what he has so long desired: a domestic case of diagnosed Ebola. It is common knowledge that Mr. Hussein despises America’s heritage and blames foreign imperialism for centuries of African poverty, exploitation and disease. How better to exact retribution, his spiteful and divisive agenda, than by dismantling our economy, empowering radical Islamic regimes with billions in aid, and now by bringing America to the precipice of an Ebola epidemic? It is absolutely criminal, a clear dereliction of duty, to allow illegal immigrants – including possible terrorist agents – to cross our border with impunity and...

    Despite the best efforts of the World Health Organization and Doctors Without Borders, Ebola is expected to rage on in West Africa for another 12-18 months, with 20,000 cases predicted. Without coordination of relief efforts, the ability to contain the disease is limited and has been labeled a “failure” to date. Countries are sending supplies and equipment in piecemeal fashion. The U.S., for example, is setting up a 25 bed hospital for its part. Unfortunately, it’s far too little to make a dent in the epidemic. It’s difficult for a person in a developed country to believe that medical systems,...

That, I feel sympathy for.” Military members past and present probably aren’t looking to...

US District Judge Ronald White said in a 20-page opinion that the Internal Revenue Service lacked the authority to enact a regulation that allows the federal government to provide tax credits to qualified health care policyholders through health care exchanges in every instance. At issue in the lawsuit was whether the IRS regulation conflicted with the clear language of ACA, also known as Obamacare, which appears...

    House Democrats on Thursday announced legislation to place a moratorium on opening any new charter public schools in Michigan. The gist of House Bill 5852 appears to be the equivalent of creating a new cap on charter schools. Introduction of legislation by the minority party in the House during an election campaign is often viewed as a political statement, not a serious legislative effort. The fact that the press conference calling attention to the measure was held in the office of House Democratic leader Tim Greimel, D-Auburn Hills, reinforces this interpretation. “It’s clear that introducing major legislation with only 18...

    In an election climate in which issues favor Republicans and polls indicate a potential GOP landslide, conservatives need still be wary of Democrat skullduggery and its impressive ground game. The trend of 21st century politics shows that issues and national sentiment have taken a back seat to get-out-the-vote efforts, particularly given Democratic Party reliance on voting constituencies that pay far less attention to the issues and are less up to date on news and current events. Despite having a solid advantage on the issues, the Republican Party risks seeing its hopes for November glory washed away by busloads of Democrats "useful idiots"...

They called it a "barbaric act."When a woman is beheaded by a Muslim in Oklahoma the Obama administration calls it "workplace violence."

    Obama’s combination of ideology and ignorance The news that the U.S. Air Force, joined at long last by some of the Arab nations most threatened by the Islamic State (ISIS), began bombing their headquarters and military sites in Syria was long overdue, but welcome. It took time because Obama had originally dismissed ISIS as a threat. It no doubt took time to get Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia to team with the U.S., but missing from the action is Turkey that borders Syria and Egypt. Turkey has become increasingly Islamist, but appears determined to stay out...

    As usual, President Obama’s recent trip to the United Nations to give a speech sparked tremendous traffic jams in New York City. Not to worry, though, it’s not so bad. “I hear a lot of hype about New York traffic, but it didn’t look too bad to me,” the President said. “All the stories of bumper-to-bumper, stop-and-go traffic that I’ve heard showed no signs on my trip to the UN.” While Obama did concede that his experience may have been abnormal compared to what ordinary drivers have to deal with, he insisted that “putting up with a little extra congestion...

    A special inspector general report on compensation for executives at General Motors and Ally Financial blasts the Treasury Department for allowing excessive pay at the companies as taxpayers lost billions of dollars on the auto bailouts. The watchdog group issuing the report monitors the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), which was set up to save financial corporations deemed "too big to fail" due to systemic risk to America's financial system. The program was expanded to allow for the bailing out of the auto industry, despite the questionable use of funds specifically designated for financial institutions. A NY Times piece...

    A sobering speech at the U.N. about the “master faith” and its quest for global dominance. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a powerful and sobering speech to the United Nations General Assembly on September 29th. He said he came from Jerusalem to speak on behalf of the Israeli people and to “expose the brazen lies spoken from this very podium against my country and the brave soldiers who defend it.” “Truth must always be spoken, especially here, in the United Nations,” the prime minister said to an audience of government leaders and delegates not used to hearing the truth...

    We are beginning to see the results of the silence of so-called “moderate” Muslims Last Thursday morning as Colleen Hufford arose and readied for work, her thoughts very likely were on the day ahead, things needing to be done, realizing that tomorrow would be Friday and maybe even thinking up weekend plans with her grandchildren. Little did she know that she was en route to becoming another statistic, a sticking point in the manic affirmations of America’s leaders that her death, like so many before hers, “had nothing to do with Islam.” But the truth is Ms Hufford’s grisly demise...
  • Why worry about ‘no boots’ when Obama’s heart isn’t in the battle against radical Islam?

    With Obama MIA in almost 60 percent of his PDB, where is he getting his information? Aside from the Arabs, who would back him 100 percent, Western leaders signing up for the ragtag coalition to take on ISIS, should be asked by their masses why they would send soldiers into a battle led by a pretend general who plays AWOL at 60 percent of his intelligence sessions. For whatever his reasons, President Barack Obama has blundered into the mideast war with no intel in his strategy arsenal.

    Frustrated that Congress does not bend to his will by granting amnesty to millions of undocumented Democrat voters, Mullah Obama has ordered the military to pander to and enlist illegal immigrants. In true PC fashion, the media are reporting the story of Military Accessions Vital to National Interest, or MAVNI. It is a Department of Defense policy which encourages illegals to enlist in the military for the purpose of introducing language skills critical to national security, such as Arabic, Chinese, Pashto or Persian. (1) Spanish is missing from the list. (2) In simple terms, native speakers are needed for translation...
  • Liberals: Tea Party Planned White House Break-In, Seek to Assassinate the President

    With the recent break-in at the White House, in which a man scaled the mansion's fence and made it inside, people across the nation are discussing its implications. Do we need a second fence? How could security be so lax? Is the President and his family safe? On the Left, however, the questions are different. Namely, they are: How can we blame Republicans for this? Are tea partiers behind this? And, of course, is the racist right-wing pushing for the President's assassination? A number of liberals on twitter and liberal websites such as Daily Kos and Democratic Underground shout a...

    For many conservatives this election is an odd mixture of joy and foreboding. On the one hand we are happy that the indications point to an end of the tyrannical reign of Harry Reid; but on the other we are faced with the prospect of more of the same old same old from Republicans. While there are many issues to be weighed as we decide what to do on November 4th, few would argue that amnesty is not our top concern. If the Republicans join Barack Obama in granting amnesty to illegal aliens our country will collapse and eventually cease...

    Prisons have long been breeding grounds for converts to Islam and jihad. Targeting broken violent men is easy prey for imams and violent Muslims building an army. O.J. Simpson is the perfect target. Report circulates that O. J. Simpson has converted to Islam in prison,” Jihadwatch, August 29, 2014 This story is circulating around today, but not at the major news outlets; it may not be accurate at all and should be treated with reserve. It does exemplify, however, how Islamic proselytizing in prison focuses on people who are angry and feel as if they have been treated unjustly, and...
