    I received a link to the above video from several gun-rights advocates, including Scott Bach of the New Jersey Association of Rifle and Pistolc Clubs (see press release here). It's a recording of the end of a Thursday meeting of the state Senate Budget Committee at which several gun-control bills were considered. The first voice is that of Chairman Paul Sarlo. After he wraps up the meeting, it sounds like someone says "We needed a bill to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate." As to just who that someone is, it's difficult to tell. It could be anyone who was near the head...

    The Left's romance with the Islamic Republic ensues. The Senate debated on Tuesday a resolution introduced by Vermont Socialist Bernie Sanders that would require the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Yemen. The surprising support the resolution won from 44 U.S. Senators handed a big win to Iran, which is engaged in a hot war with Saudi Arabia on the Arabian Peninsula. And it was a huge slap in the face to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who was meeting with President Trump in the White House as the Senate debated the motion on the floor. It also showed the...

    A retired Army lieutenant colonel and Fox News contributor quit the network Tuesday, accusing it of fueling paranoia among its audience and serving as a “propaganda machine” for the Trump administration. Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, a “strategic analyst” at Fox News, made the comments in an email to colleagues announcing that he had not renewed his contract, obtained by BuzzFeed. “Four decades ago, I took an oath as a newly commissioned officer. I swore to ‘support and defend the Constitution,’ and that oath did not expire when I took off my uniform. Today, I feel that Fox News is...

    NEW YORK (AP) — The Weinstein Co. filed for bankruptcy protection on Monday with a buyout offer in hand from a private equity firm, the latest twist in its efforts to survive the sexual misconduct scandal that brought down co-founder Harvey Weinstein, shook Hollywood and triggered a movement that spread out to convulse other industries. The company also announced it was releasing any victims of or witnesses to Weinstein’s alleged misconduct from non-disclosure agreements preventing them from speaking out.
  • The Joy and Necessity of Driving Liberals Nuts

    Is the foundation of our revolt against the elites – which the liberals and the Fredocons call “Trumpism” because they don’t want to face the fact that Normals are tired of their corruption and incompetence – merely trolling by a bunch of malcontents? True, we do enjoy messing with them. You look at the avatar of the movement, Donald Trump, and he’s the Trollmaster Level XII Emeritus. This guy lays down the smack, and a lot of Americans are delighted by his antics.But is that all this is? Is our movement simply about slamming the people we’re annoyed at and...

    Hat Tip: H. Gregory Badger Enigmas (1) Isn't it weird that in America, our flag and our culture offend so many people, but our benefits don't? (2) How can the federal government ask U.S. citizens to pay back student loans, when illegal aliens are receiving a free education? (3) Only in America are legal citizens labeled "racists" and "Nazis," but illegal aliens are called "Dreamers”. (4) Liberals say, "If confiscating all guns saves just one life, it's worth it". Well then, if deporting all illegals saves just one life, wouldn't that be worth it? (5) I can't quite figure out...

    Director Terry Gilliam is speaking out against the #MeToo movement, saying that in Hollywood, “mob rule takes over; the mob is out there, they are carrying their torches and they are going to burn down Frankenstein’s castle.” In a an interview with AFP on Friday, the filmmaker, a member of the comedy group Monty Python, specifically went after Harvey Weinstein’s alleged victims, and said, “Harvey opened the door for a few people, a night with Harvey — that’s the price you pay.” “It is a world of victims. I think some people did very well out of meeting with Harvey...

    WASHINGTON — The Justice Department under Barack Obama directed the FBI to drop more than 500,000 names of fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, acting FBI deputy director David Bowdich testified Wednesday. Fugitives from justice are barred from buying a firearm under federal law. But what is a fugitive from justice? That definition has been under debate by the FBI and the ATF. According to The Washington Post, the FBI considered any person with an outstanding arrest warrant to be a fugitive. On the other hand, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and...

    NEW YORK – A former top aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo was convicted on corruption charges Tuesday at a trial that further exposed the state capital's culture of backroom deal-making. A federal jury in Manhattan found Joseph Percoco guilty of two counts of conspiracy to commit honest services wire fraud and one count of soliciting bribes after deliberating for parts of three weeks. "Joseph Percoco was found guilty of taking over $300,000 in cash bribes by selling something priceless that was not his to sell – the sacred obligation to honestly and faithfully serve the citizens of New York," Manhattan...

    Ross Gerber is a fund manager at Gerber Kawasaki. According to their webpage, they have over $650 Million in assets under management. Given Gerber's recent comments on social media, one must wonder if he has any Trump supporters as clients. In a now-deleted Tweet, Ross Gerber Tweeted from the official, verified @GerberKawasaki account: "If you are hosting or attending the Trump fundraiser in LA we will identify who you are to the media and public. We will boycott your business'." Mr. Gerber of course has every First Amendment right to dox and boycott people. However, as a fund manager, he...

But the most terrifying words in every other language are, “We’re from the international community and we’re here to help.” In Haitian Creole that would be, "Nou soti nan kominote entčnasyonal la e nou isit la pou ede." When an earthquake hit Haiti in ’10, everyone who was anyone in the international community quickly...

    At one time, California was the envy of America, attracting people from around the nation to move to a state offering opportunity and the chance to pursue ambitious dreams. With scenic beauty, the Pacific Ocean coastline, the major cities of San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco, California recruited entrepreneurs looking for economic growth. As the home of Hollywood and multitudes of celebrities, California presented an enticing potential to enjoy“lifestyles of the rich and famous.” Today, California has become an economic and cultural disaster. The state is home to over 114,000 homeless people, one quarter of the total in the...

    This week, Congressional Democrats released a detailed tax hike plan that they promised to implement if given majority control of the House and Senate after the 2018 midterm elections. So much for the crocodile tears about the deficit--Democrats want to raise taxes not to reduce the debt, but rather to spend that tax hike money on boondoggle projects. As you might expect, hold onto your wallets. Here are the details: Increase the top marginal income tax rate from 37 percent to 39.6 percent. This nearly 3 percentage point increase in the top personal rate is not only a hike in...

Many in Hollywood and the movie industry secretly support President Trump, Antonio Sabato Jr. divulged to WND, and they’re itching to take California back from the grips of socialist Democrats. In fact, behind the scenes, several Hollywood figures have expressed enthusiastic support for Sabato and his bid for Congress. “I can focus on the negative that is coming from Hollywood or focus on the positive:...

    They tell us that our uppity refusal to quietly submit to abuse and subjugation, both figurative and literal, makes us bad people. Not only can we live with that, but we should celebrate it.When the liberals and their squishy-soft allies in Conservative, Inc., start moaning about your dreadful incivility, that’s a clear indicator that you are doing something right and that you need to double down. Civility, once properly understood as a means to an end rather than an end in and of itself, has morphed from an aspiration into a political/cultural gimp suit designed to prevent you from effectively...

    A Texas sheriff refused to sign a letter agreeing to hold arrested illegal immigrants for ICE. ​Austin, TX – Travis County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) deputies lost the opportunity to receive lifesaving ballistic vests, after the department’s sheriff decided it was more important to shield illegal immigrants from federal agents. The vests were made available through a unanimously approved state Senate bill in 2017, which allocated $25 million to help Texas law enforcement agencies to purchase the gear for their officers in the wake of the July 7, 2016 police ambush in Dallas that left five officers dead, KXAN reported.

    I know Donny Deutsch only too well. A stereotypical, spoiled-brat, New York liberal. CNBC had two fair-haired boys they were grooming to be the stars of their network in the early 2000’s: Donny Deutsch and Wayne Allyn Root. CNBC gave Donny his own TV show. They made the decision to give me two TV shows to host. My lawyer was on the phone with CNBC’s legal department finalizing my contract to become the new star of CNBC, when my phone rang. It was the Vice President of CNBC telling me the deal was cancelled. She explained CEO Jeffrey Zucker...
