  • Obama to make 'smart guns' push (cops say they don’t want to be guinea pigs)

    04/28/2016 5:23:07 PM PDT · by TroutStalker · 55 replies
    Politico ^ | 04/28/16 | Sarah Wheaton
    President Barack Obama is opening a new front in the gun control debate, readying a big push for so-called smart gun technology — an initiative that the gun lobby and law enforcement rank and file is already mobilizing against. As early as Friday, Obama is set to formally release findings from the Defense, Justice and Homeland Security Departments on ways to spur the development of guns that can be fired only by their owner, according to industry and gun control sources. Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett is slated to preview the announcement for stakeholders on Thursday afternoon. It’s an intensification of...

    Western Journalism ^ | 4/28/16 | Jack Davis
    There’s a lot of buzz these days about Andrea Tantaros, known to millions of viewers as a host of the Fox News show Outnumbered. However, the buzz has nothing to do with her new book. Tantaros, who was last seen on Outnumbered on Monday, is no longer appearing on Fox, and the network will only hint at the reason why. “Issues have arisen regarding Andrea’s contract, and Fox News Channel has determined it best that she take some time off. She is still under contract with the network,” Fox News said in a statement in reply to questions about Tantaros,...

    “Paul Ryan says he’s preparing to release a new ‘Contract with America, but he’s already broken the only contract that matters,” said Paul Nehlen late Wednesday of the 18-year incumbent politician. Nehlen is challenging Ryan in the GOP primary in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District. “Let’s be clear. Paul Ryan entered into a contract with his constituents the minute he assumed public office,” Nehlen added. “It’s a contract the people of his district expected him to uphold—a contract that necessarily expanded to include the citizenry of the entire United States when he took the Speaker’s chair. He swore to safeguard our...

    Donald Trump gave an amazing speech about his approach to US foreign policy on Wednesday, at least according to Donald Trump. At an event sponsored by the Center for the National Interest, the Republican presidential frontrunner delivered a 5,000-word speech touching on his criticisms of the Obama administration’s approach to national security, the need to whip US allies into shape, and promised that he alone can restore what he described as the lost standing of the US in world affairs. A Trump foreign policy would eschew “nation building” but would still somehow promote stability worldwide. It would teach our allies...

    A poll being pushed by gun-grabbing oath-breakers Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly claims most Nevadans favor banning Americans on the government’s so-called “terror watch list” and “no fly list” from buying guns, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Monday. The effort is part of the Astroturf pile-on now that billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s minions have set loose Question 1 on an electorate largely ignorant of what so-called “background checks” are really intended to do. Not only will that place a prior restraint on a right that, according to the supreme Law of the Land “shall not be infringed,” but, per no less...

It’s a meeting that ended abruptly, with students reading a letter asking for more time, and walking out. “As students of color, WE DO NOT point fingers nor cast blame for the lack of awareness and understanding in regards to the black experience here at Salisbury University, keeping in mind that racism and cultural segregation existed long before any of us stepped foot on campus,” the letter read. “However, we refuse to deny that the current environment on campus takes a huge...

    ESPN fired baseball analyst and former All-Star Curt Schilling for mocking the debate about the North Carolina public facilities law. On his Facebook page, Schilling posted a meme (a graphic) with the picture of an aged and overweight man dressed in just enough women's clothing to prevent flagrant violation of public exposure laws. The photo caption read: "Let him in to the restroom with your daughter or else you're a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving, racist bigot who needs to die!" Under the meme, Schilling wrote: "A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don't care what they...

Although much of Perez’s history is well-known to PJM readers due to his many fringe polices at the Justice Department Civil Rights Division, the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) recently obtained his revealing eight-page resume. Nearly every single entry of his career history involves some form of racial activism. Read the resume here.

Educators balanced their concerns for their undocumented and mixed-status students, while acknowledging the hope that they ultimately deserve. During the tea, I couldn't help but think of the student from my school district, who was sitting in a jail cell rather than a classroom, feeling those same emotions.

    I don't think at this point that the FBI will refer charges to Justice for reasons explained here, though I could very well be wrong. But the fact is, even if Director Comey were to do that, there is next to no chance that the Justice Department will pursue an indictment against Clinton. President Obama has vouched for Clinton and stated his opinion that national security was not endangered by her actions. All that may be improper, but it clearly communicated his preference that Justice not pursue an indictment. His designee at Justice, Loretta Lynch, will make those determinations (in...

The only thing to watch were his margins: Could he close out against John Kasich in certain highly educated, suburban congressional districts in Connecticut and Maryland, and could he break a 50 percent statewide winner-take-all threshold in Connecticut? Yes, he could! He could do all of that, and he did. He won every state by double digits and cruised in every congressional district awarding bound delegates.

The FDA announced a change in their guidelines for Mifeprex in March. The new guidelines reduce the dosage from 600 milligrams to 200 milligrams, decrease the number of required doctor’s visits from three to two, and allow the pill to be taken later in pregnancy, at 10 weeks of pregnancy from 7 weeks. “We...

The Senate's top Republicans teamed up to block the Democratic efforts. Majority LeaderMitch McConnell objected to requests...

    Conservatives’ attitudes toward climate change and other environmental concerns shift when the issues are reframed in terms more closely aligned with their values, a new study from Oregon State University indicates. Researchers found that people who identified as conservative were more likely to support “pro-environmental” ideals when the issues were framed as matters of obeying authority, defending the purity of nature and demonstrating patriotism. The study underscores the ways in which discussions of important topics are informed by a person’s moral and ideological perspective, said the study’s lead author, Christopher Wolsko, an assistant professor of psychology at OSU-Cascades. “We think...

    Target allows men to use the same restrooms as ten-year-old girls and has made it clear that it would prefer law-abiding citizens to enter its stores unarmed. On April 20, Breitbart News reported that Target released a statement in which they equated opening girls’ restrooms to men as part of “equality.” The statement said, “Inclusivity is a core belief at Target. It’s something we celebrate. We stand for equality and equity, and strive to make our guests and team members feel accepted, respected and welcomed in our stores and workplaces every day.”

    Stossel: I have lung cancer. My medical care is excellent but the customer service stinks By John Stossel Published April 20, 2016 I write this from the hospital. Seems I have lung cancer. My doctors tell me my growth was caught early and I'll be fine. Soon I will barely notice that a fifth of my lung is gone. I believe them. After all, I'm at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. U.S. News & World Report ranked it No. 1 in New York. I get excellent medical care here. But as a consumer reporter, I have to say, the hospital's customer service...
  • Poll says Nevadans favor gun control for those on terror watch, no-fly lists(HUH?)

    A new gun control campaign is targeting Nevadans. A group founded by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, is pushing for new laws that would bar people on the terrorist watch list and the no-fly list from purchasing firearms. However, gun rights and civil rights groups continue to raise concerns about due process over those lists. The group, Americans for Responsible Solutions, said a majority of Nevadans would support a federal law prohibiting people on the FBI’s terrorist watch list or the no-fly list from buying firearms, according to poll results released Tuesday. Public...
  • Poll: 72% of Americans do not support lawsuits against gun manufacturers

    The issue of nuisance lawsuits against gun manufacturers has moved well beyond the courtroom drama playing out with the Sandy Hook families. Bernie Sanders has managed to drive Hillary Clinton further to the left as she seeks lines of attack against the Vermont Senator, coaxing her into calling for the repeal of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) in recent campaign stops. That may serve her purposes in the primary, but how well does such a position play nationally as we look forward to the general election in November? A new survey conducted by Harper Polling indicates...

    Could the next president of the United States be neither Clinton, Trump, Cruz, or Kasich ... but Thomas Perez? It’s far more likely than you might think. Even before any candidate definitively secures either party’s presidential nomination, 2016 is looking more and more like 1912 all over again. In that fateful year, Theodore Roosevelt -- after four years of bored retirement -- decided that he wanted to be president again. However, Roosevelt’s handpicked successor William Howard Taft refused to yield. Because of the split, even though the Democrats’ dour, arrogant Woodrow Wilson won fewer popular votes than perennial failed...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan concedes the “five-point” Republican legislative agenda he’s pursuing in Congress could be construed as competing with policy points the GOP presidential candidates are pushing in the primary season. But he argues that the party shouldn’t wait until its nominating convention in July to tell the public its priorities, including lowering the national debt, strengthening the military and easing government regulation of business. […] … Ryan adds that the GOP needs “a transition from being an opposition party to being a proposition party.” …
  • Gallup: Americans Who Identify as 'Environmentalists' Down 36 Points Since 1991(RuhRoh!)

    A Gallup poll [1]released on Friday shows that the number of Americans who identify as environmentalists has dropped 36 points, from 78 percent in 1991 to 42 percent in 2016. There has also been a decline in Americans expressing concern about environmental problems, such as pollution. The Earth Day poll [1] is conducted annually by Gallup. The polling firm cites the politicization of environmental issues as one possible reason for the decline, highlighting the growing partisan gap in those who identify as environmentalists. A large percentage of Americans (Republicans and Democrats) – 78 percent – considered themselves environmentalists in 1991....

    MSNBC ^ | April 26, 2016 | By Jane C. Timm
    Donald Trump says the electoral delegate allocation is "rigged" and rival "Lyin' Ted" Cruz is trying to steal the election away by wooing supporters. But in Pennsylvania, where 54 unbound delegates are elected directly by district and free to vote as they wish, Trump is employing the same hunting playbook Cruz has used for weeks. Hate the player, not the game? Trump insists he can reach that key number - 1237 delegates - by winning the pledged delegates awarded in primaries, but his team is nonetheless on the ground working to sway the unbound delegates his rivals hope to use...
