    PHOENIX — A Prescott lawmaker is proposing changes in state law designed to protect the right of Arizonans to keep their weapons no matter what a future Congress decides. But the attorney who crafted it for Republican Rep. David Stringer said that still won't let Arizonans keep their "bump stocks'' if the federal government declares them illegal. The legislation spells out the kind of weapons that the state believes are necessary for those who are members of the state militia. Existing Arizona law already says that automatically includes all "able-bodied citizens of the state'' between 18 and 45. And just...
  • Bigotry Backfires in Montana

    Larry Abramson, Dean of the University of Montana (UM) School of Journalism, has irreparably harmed the reputation of his school. With its 93% acceptance rate, UM has never been a selective university with a stellar reputation. Nonetheless, Abramson’s decision to reject my selection as the keynote for 10th annual Jeff Cole Distinguished Lecture Series has backfired and badly embarrassed the institution. To make matters worse, UM President Sheila Stearns has missed a golden opportunity to mitigate the damage by responding with an unequivocal defense of free speech.Those needing additional background information on the controversy can read my column “Grizzly Bigotry...

    The Hill ^ | Jan 01, 2018 | Avery Anapol
    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) on New Year’s Day called for a revival of “shared facts” in politics and the media. Sasse released a video saying that the country's system of government “will not work” without a shared understanding of the value of the First Amendment. “The only way the republic can work is if we come together and we defend each other’s rights to say things that we differ about,” Sasse said in the video. “We defend each other’s rights to publish journalism and pieces and things that we then want to argue about.” Sasse has in the past defended...

    Donald Trump, who pulled off an astonishing win over one year ago, is the least popular president ever elected thus far. Other presidents were elected, and became more unpopular later, but Trump was unpopular from the day he announced, unpopular while running, and unpopular the day he was elected as president, even while he was winning over 300 votes in the Electoral College. At the same time, he had unprecedented levels of resistance from inside his party, some of whose members have never come over. He failed to win a majority of the votes cast in the Republican primary, and...

    The current President of the United States deserves our support in 2018 and beyond. For years we as Americans have sat around our tables and said, “It would be nice to elect someone who believes what they say and does what they say.” President Donald Trump is such a President as we have never seen. President Trump knew everyone who was anyone in New York City but was never with the elite crowd in Manhattan despite having all the money in the world. By being President, he was never trying to fulfill some secret desire to be part of the...

    This homemade MAC 10 Submachine gun clone was turned in at the recent St. Louis “buyback”. Of course, you can’t buy back firearms that you never owned. Buyback is an Orwellian propaganda term used to designate events were people are incentivized to turn weapons into police . . . At the St. Louis event just before Christmas, the police took in 839 assorted firearms. From the St. Louis Police Twitter feed: A special thank you to our Commissioned and Civilian Personnel, the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity and the St.Louis Police Foundation in removing the following Firearms from the streets...

    American Minute with Bill Federer ^ | January 1, 2018 | Bill Federer
    On JANUARY 1, 1802, the people of Cheshire, Massachusetts, sent a giant block of cheese to President Thomas Jefferson, being presented by the famous Baptist preacher, John Leland. John Leland was then invited to preach to the President and Congress in the U.S. Capitol. The subject of his talk was "separation of church and state." Baptists had been particularly persecuted in colonial Virginia, as Francis L. Hawks wrote in Ecclesiastical History (1836): "No dissenters in Virginia experienced for a time harsher treatment than the Baptists ... They were beaten and imprisoned ... Cruelty taxed ingenuity to devise new modes of...
  • Poland and Hungary warned they WILL face consequences over 'violating EU migrant quotas'

    Express ^ | 12/30/2017
    THE European Court of Justice (ECJ) is currently deliberating on an allegation that Hungary and Poland violated the legality of the EU’s migrant quota. The news comes as the nationalistic politics of both countries has prompted increased tensions between Brussels. One EU source told Reuters: "We are confident that the ECJ will confirm validation, then they [Poland and Hungary] must abide by the decision. "If they don't, then they will face consequences, both financial and political. “No more opt-outs, there is no more ‘one foot in and one foot out.' We are going to be very tough on this.” Both...

    President Trump on Sunday said 2018 will be a "fantastic year," while touting the economic success during his first year in office. "We’re going to have a great year. We’re going to have a fantastic 2018," Trump told reporters, according to a pool report. The remarks came as the president walked into the New Year's Eve party at Mar-a-Lago, his Palm Beach, Fla. resort, with first lady Melania Trump. The president said the country is already "off to a very good start" while highlighting some of provisions included in the GOP tax cut plan, his administration's first major legislative victory....

    Washington Times ^ | Dec 31, 2017 | S.A. Miller
    The hostility with which President Trump and the news media regard each other has only intensified during his first year in the White House, even as the president engaged in an unprecedented level of interaction with reporters. Mr. Trump allowed pool sprays and other events that usually would be relegated to photo ops to become impromptu press conferences. He responded to more than 500 questions from reporters during these encounters, according to a tally by The Washington Times. His walks across the South Lawn to and from Marine One routinely become question-and-answer sessions with reporters along the rope line. He...
  • Peace Through Strength: Another Trump Radicalism?

    In the last couple of weeks, the Western world has celebrated another Christmas, notwithstanding the killjoys who insist on arguing about how to extend the greetings of the season. In addition, we have had a brief, but welcome, respite in the sexual harassment casualty count, as 2017 passes into the record books. What has gone mostly unremarked in the rush and bustle of the Christmas season is the emergence of a stated foreign policy platform for the Trump Administration, and the predictable outrage from the organs of respectable opinion in the media. The charge that the Trumpian “America First” vision...

    I’m starting to think that all too many Democrats believe that private citizens and private corporations don’t actually own their private income or their private property. Otherwise, how can we explain the Democratic insistence, repeated endlessly over the last 24 hours, that Republicans somehow are poised to execute a grand “heist” by cutting corporate and individual tax rates, granting an estimated 80.4 percent of taxpayers an average tax break of $2,140. The rhetoric was remarkable, and the hysterics weren’t confined to fringe figures on the left. Here’s House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi:

    The New American ^ | Written by Patrick J. Buchanan
    The original question the FBI investigation of the Trump campaign was to answer was a simple one: Did he do it? Did Trump, or officials with his knowledge, collude with Vladimir Putin's Russia to hack the emails of John Podesta and the DNC, and leak the contents to damage Hillary Clinton and elect Donald Trump? A year and a half into the investigation, and, still, no "collusion" has been found. Yet the investigation goes on, at the demand of the never-Trump media and Beltway establishment. Hence, and understandably, suspicions have arisen. Are the investigators after the truth, or are they...

    Police in a Colorado city just outside of Denver said "multiple deputies" are down after being shot while responding to a disturbance call early Sunday. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said in a tweet that citizens in Highlands Ranch should shelter in place and avoid windows.
