    Breitbart ^ | 18 May 2016 | AWR Hawkins
    Proponents of more gun control for American citizens are frequently people who live their lives surrounded by good guys with guns. Moreover, gun control proponents are also people who use tragedies as an opportunity to push more gun laws even when said laws would have done nothing to prevent the tragedy that occurred. Occasionally, all these hypocritical qualities are found in one person or, in this case, seven people.

    Bernie Sanders (champion of the "downtrodden", the climate, wannabe punisher of the successful and "free stuff" Santa Claus) charted a Boeing 767 jet for his overnight trip to Rome to see fellow socialist Pope Francis. According to the Daily Mail... that requires approx 33,192 gallons of fuel for the round trip. 50 or so passengers made the trip with Bern (767 capacity is 250 or so).

    Paul Ryan is a despicable worm and that is the best I can say about him. I tweet him calling him Paulie and telling him off almost every day.

  • Pro-lifers leaders push back on Trump’s statement that women should be punished for abortions

    Since running for president, Donald Trump has claimed to be pro-life, something that some people don’t truly believe. He continually praises Planned Parenthood, and has ‘joked’ that his pro-abortion extremist sister would make a “terrific” Supreme Court justice. Previously, he supported partial-birth abortion. He claims to have “evolved” and changed his mind about abortion. But his latest comments on abortion have stunned people across the country, both pro-life and pro-abortion. While being interviewed by Chris Matthews for an MSNBC townhall, Trump was asked if women seeking abortions should be “punished” should abortion become illegal. At first, Trump waffled on the...

    The implosion over Donald Trump’s candidacy that Republicans had hoped to avoid arrived so virulently this weekend that many party leaders vowed never to back the billionaire and openly questioned whether the GOP could come together this election year. At a moment when Republicans had hoped to begin taking on Hillary Clinton — who is seemingly on her way to wrapping up the Democratic nomination — the GOP has instead become consumed by a crisis over its identity and core values that is almost certain to last through the July party convention, if not the rest of the year.

    With the untimely death of Antonin Scalia Saturday, President Barack Obama has been handed the opportunity of a lifetime to tilt the Supreme Court to the left for decades to come. It's also given Democrats an issue to demagogue from now until election day and beyond. About an hour after Scalia's death was confirmed, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell "threw down the gauntlet," announcing that the Senate would not be confirming a replacement for him until after the 2016 election, a move Politico called, "an historic rebuke of President Obama's authority and an extraordinary challenge to the practice of...

    Top Democratic politicians and committees have taken tens of thousands in contributions from individuals who work at firms that lobby on behalf of Koch Industries, despite railing against Koch's influence for years, according to campaign finance filings. Charles and David Koch, the billionaire libertarian philanthropists and heavyweight political donors, have been at the center of the Democrats' "dark money" campaign finance battle in recent years. Democrats have charged that Republican politicians who receive funds from the Koch network are "beholden" to their political agenda. However, individuals who work at firms that actually do represent Koch interests have also poured money...

    Billionaire Paul Allen has given millions of dollars to conservation causes over the years, including ones that support ocean exploration and preservation. But earlier this month, his 300-foot yacht Tatoosh allegedly caused significant damage to a protected coral reef in the Cayman Islands. The anchor and chain of the vessel allegedly damaged 14,000 square feet of reef on January 14, according to Cayman Islands' Department of Environment. The incident occurred in a protected area of Grand Cayman called the West Bay replenishment zone, which is near popular scuba diving sites. The M/V Tatoosh was "moored in a position explicitly directed...

    The invective against Dr. Ben Carson coming from the left is extraordinary, even for the left. Now that Carson, one of the pre-eminent brain surgeons in America, has become a viable candidate for president, the left has labelled him everything awful it can come up with. One left-wing columnist, Charles Blow of The New York Times, even disparaged his intelligence. But there were two attacks made this past week that should be beyond the pale even for the left. The first was that Carson "blamed the victims" in the Roseburg, Oregon, community college mass murder. How did that happen? On...

    The left has a favorite Bible verse, one that even President Obama can’t resist. Jesus said it in the Sermon on the Mount: “Judge not.” Of course, Obama is wont to misquote the Bible whenever he pleases, making up stuff that “the good book says” like “don’t throw stones at glass houses.” (Hint: they didn’t even have glass in Biblical days.) But judging is exactly what the left does, while they tell Christians not to, because, you know, do what I say, not what I do. Let’s take same-sex marriage.  Oh, Christians shouldn’t judge says the liberal elites.  It doesn’t...

    Some people are of the unfortunate opinion that the John Birch Society is militantly patriotic and a supporter of this nation's military. That is not the case, especially not now. The JBS always was a front group for the European right wing and our own domestic Jew-haters. It was the "blue lodge" for recruiting decent conservatives and, by exposing them a little bit at a time to the classic anti-Jewish line, to eventually recruit them into the anti-Semitic movement proper. But at least when I was a member some thirty years ago the Society's publications didn't openly take potshots at...

Nor are they outraged over Planned Parenthood cutting out the brains of babies while their hearts are still beating. They are, however, suddenly concerned about babies of illegal immigrants born in the United States being called "anchor babies" by GOP presidential candidates.

    One of the most controversial art works of the 1990s is going up for auction, and it could be yours – elephant dung and all – for around $2.3 million. “The Holy Virgin Mary,” a 1996 painting by British artist Chris Ofili, created a firestorm of controversy when it was exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum of Art in 1999. The painting depicts a black Madonna figure baring one breast, which is made from lacquered elephant dung and surrounded by butterfly-like formations of female genitalia (a play on the term putti, a type of cherub depicted in religious art).

Leading law firms are willing to represent tobacco companies accused of lying about their deadly products, factories that spew pollution, and corporations said to be complicit in torture and murder abroad. But standing up for traditional marriage has turned out to be too much for the elite bar. The arguments have been left to...

    In Rochester, New York, in early December of 2014, after considerable commotion from the city’s liberal religious, non-profit, university and political sectors, the police chief and police union president, in concert with the lieutenant governor, pressured a group of Americans not to exercise their constitutional rights of free speech and peaceable assembly. Weird, huh? And what did these several hundred Americans intend to do? Thank the police. And firefighters, and other first responders. Un-effing-believable. In a city which had featured four consecutive days of protests against the police, a rally for the police was deemed too dangerous. In “the interest...

    The New York Times put together a little article about some of the disgusting race-baiting attack ads run by frenzied Democrats in the fading days of the midterm election season. It’s not really surprising that the Times would find nothing terribly objectionable about this – the Paper of Record’s eyebrow is raised a bit, but not enough to make its monocle fall out – but it’s a sobering reminder of how very, very different the rules for Democrats are. They can be as nasty as they want to be, without fear of the media making them pay much of a...

    ...The Seattle Socialist Party is offering Web Developers employment at $13 an hour, despite pushing for a $20 minimum wage. Now, in a follow up interview, the party insists that it should not be held to its own standards. “We’re practicing what we’re preaching in terms of continuing to fight for the minimum wage,” Doug Barnes, the Freedom Socialist Party’s national secretary, told the Huffington Post. “But we can’t pay a lot more than $13." Apparently completely unaware of his own hypocrisy, Barnes added that he personally supports a $22 an hour minimum wage.
  • Blatant intolerance of the 'tolerant' left

    To prove my point, I have compiled a list of yummy quotes from a website called What Liberals Say, highlighting the extreme intolerance of the “tolerant” left, beginning with Vice President Joe Biden. Do Biden’s racist remarks represent intolerance? Yes, considering what would happen if a Republican had said anything similar. Joe Biden’s racist statement about Obama: “I mean you’ve got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean that’s a storybook, man.”

    "...Take note: Instead of working to get out the vote, educate voters, and advance Republican and conservative principles in key states, and fire up the base, the establishment has already thrown in the towel. They are trying to shape a narrative about why their candidates lost instead of making sure their candidates win. Their narrative is that tea partiers are… what were those words you used, David? Oh yes. Tea partiers are naïve, sophomoric, and stupid, and this trifecta of character flaws will cause us to behave like petulant children."

    The “people’s climate march” was notable for the amazing energy, economic and climate illiteracy displayed by the mostly young people parading along New York City streets September 21. Their chants, rants and placards demanded that we stop climate change (that’s been ongoing throughout Earth and human history), eliminate fossil fuels (that supply 80% of the energy that makes their modern living standards possible), ban fracking (which is largely responsible for reducing the carbon dioxide emissions they blame for global warming that ended at least 18 years ago), and abolish capitalism! Some of the absurdities can be enjoyed here, here, here...

    Big, busy Morning Jolt to close out the week — an appalling failure of immigration law enforcement, an indictment in that long-forgotten GSA conference scandal, another trip down memory lane for a beloved prematurely-canceled television show, and then this glaring change in our national politics: Funeral Services for the Anti-War Movement Will Be Held Next Week Howard Kurtz writes the obituary of the anti-war movement. Born in 2003, the movement experienced sudden difficulties in January 2009, struggled and limped along for the past few years, and finally collapsed in the street in front of the White House least week: Medea...
  • Gun Control Activist Who Swore He Forgot He Was Packing Heat At School Gets JOKE Sentence

    Back in February, a Buffalo, N.Y. community activist who pushed for a highly restrictive 2013 gun control law was arrested for — wait for it — carrying a gun illegally at a public elementary school. The wheels of criminal justice have now slowly, slowly churned to completion. And wouldn’t you know it? The judge in the case has now found it in his heart to give the heat-packing activist, Dwayne Ferguson, a generously light sentence. On Monday, Judge John L. Michalek sentenced Ferguson to 100 hours of community service and a conditional discharge, according
  • Palin-Bashing Media Ignore Debbie Wasserman Schultz Wardrobe Malfunction

    When the RNC paid for a wardrobe for VP nominee Sarah Palin, the media screamed. When Debbie Wasserman Schultz tries to get the DNC to pay for her wardrobe, the same media yawns. While the major networks and print media extensively covered the Palin wardrobe controversy in 2008 and beyond, the media has been nearly silent on the DWS effort to score some decent threads from the DNC or Obama campaign. Flashback to 2008 when Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was tapped to be GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain's vice presidential running mate, just five months after giving birth to...
