  • Former NRA President: Marco Rubio Wasn’t ‘a Friend to Gun Owners’ in FL

    Breitbart ^ | January 11, 2016 | AWR Hawkins
    Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% is taking a hard position against President Obama’s current gun control push, but various reports on Rubio’s time in the Florida house of representatives and U.S. Senate show a past marked by a fluctuating relationship between Rubio and gun rights. In one such report, published in 2010, former NRA president Marion Hammer said Rubio “has not been a friend to gun owners.” Hammer was reflecting on the difficultly that attended the passage of a bill guaranteeing employees the ability to keep guns in their cars at work for self-defense. According to Politico,...

    Do you disagree with Liberty University's president's decision to endorse Donald Trump for president? You could get blocked on Twitter if you tweet your dissatisfaction with the endorsement. Tyler McNally, a Liberty University student (and someone I've followed for a few years), tweeted a screenshot Friday afternoon showing Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. blocking him on his Twitter account. pic.twitter.com/TnQ6uXJtiM - Tyler McNally (@Tyler_McNally) January 29, 2016 "My school president blocked me.

    Politico ^ | 1/18/16 | Matthew McWilliams
    f I asked you what most defines Donald Trump supporters, what would you say? They’re white? They’re poor? They’re uneducated? You’d be wrong. In fact, I’ve found a single statistically significant variable predicts whether a voter supports Trump—and it’s not race, income or education levels: It’s authoritarianism. That’s right, Trump’s electoral strength—and his staying power—have been buoyed, above all, by Americans with authoritarian inclinations. And because of the prevalence of authoritarians in the American electorate, among Democrats as well as Republicans, it’s very possible that Trump’s fan base will continue to grow. My finding is the result of a national...

    Should we look in another direction, or should we speak up about the reality of what is happening around the world?

Such an increase would, you see, compromise our businesses and economic performance. Life is valued cheaply when it does not affect our society directly.

    The cost of Liberty is high,and is likely to remain so; because it is a visible wound in the decaying flesh of Tyranny, and Freedom's voluntary soldiers must inflict it again and again with their lives. Each generation is called to "consider the cost",and over 240 years that call has been answered and the cost paid. As never before, since the Civil War, has the cost of our presidential election been higher, and our Freedom been in greater jeopardy. America is morally and spiritually adrift; and in the hands of a masterful demagogue, who has brought great devastation to our...

    American immorality and contempt for liberty lie at the root of most of the political economic problems our nation faces. They explain the fiscal problems we face, such as growing national debt and budget deficits at the federal, state and local levels of government. Our immorality and contempt for liberty are reflected most in our widespread belief that government ought to forcibly use one American to serve the purposes of another American. Let's examine it. Suppose there is an elderly widow in your neighborhood. She does not have the strength to mow her lawn, clean her windows and perform...

He posed the same question about Exxon, and John Kerry, who could have been president of these United States, said that he looked forward to the seizure of Exxon's assets for the crime of "proselytizing' impermissibly about the question of global warming. An enemy of the state? That's the Democrats' theme for the New Year: totalitarianism. Donald Trump may talk like a...

No, it wasn't a religion of hate, but one of principles. They didn't chop someone's head off or shoot them. They merely said "no" to a celebration of an event that violated their deeply...

    You can see a coarsening in how we respond and react on social media. No one feels ashamed to exploit the tragedy for political purposes even while it is happening. But as soon as the story broke Wednesday afternoon, and while it was still going on, there were accusations and bitter words flung all over the Internet. The weirdest argument came almost immediately. A person named Chris Murphy, who is a U.S. senator representing Connecticut, sent out what struck me as the most manipulative message of recent political history. The background is that Republican presidential contestants responded online to the...

    Chart in first post In a December 2013 Breitbart article, “Congressional Study: Murder Rate Plummets as Gun Ownership Soars,” Awr Hawkins referred to the CRS report referenced above and connected the two trends: So after all the pro-gun control grandstanding and the relentless focus on how the so-called easy availability of guns drives up crime, the CRS report shows that more guns–especially more concealable guns–has actually correlated with less crime. Bottom Line: Even if you’re not convinced that increased gun ownership reduces violent crime and gun homicides, you should be totally convinced of this indisputable fact: Gun violence has been...

    Washington (CNN)Facing dwindling odds of successful gun control legislation before President Barack Obama leaves office, the White House is exploring executive action that would expand background checks on gun sales, officials say, though legal and administrative complications have proven difficult to surmount. On Friday the president met with Gabrielle Giffords, the former Arizona congresswoman severely wounded in a mass shooting in Tucson in 2011 in which six people were killed. Her husband, NASA astronaut Mark Kelly, also participated, as did senior White House advisor Valerie Jarrett. The White House provided an update on the process, started after a shooting rampage...

    LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) -- The president of Liberty University urged students at the Christian school to carry concealed weapons on campus to counter any possible armed attack like the mass killings in San Bernardino, Calif. "Let's teach them a lesson if they ever show up here," President Jerry Falwell Jr. told students at a convocation Friday. The call-to-arms was met with rousing applause from students, but some said Falwell went too far when he appeared to be referring specifically to Muslims, the News & Advance reported.

    The first Christmas tree on our block popped up the day after Halloween. Soon enough, garlands of white lights began to adorn neighborhood trees and doorways. It's Christmas -- except that it's not. From what I can see, Thanksgiving has yet to be acknowledged, much less observed. I have no particular observations to make concerning our new habit of compressing all our October-December commemorations into "The Holiday Season." I'll remark only on the eclipse of Thanksgiving, which could be due to a number of factors. Perhaps it's the lack of compelling decorating themes, as contrasted with Halloween and Christmas.

From Brietbart.com: Carrying a weapon is not always feasible or appropriate. However, given the increased tensions that are the result of continued, escalating terrorism around the world, more legitimately armed individuals on the streets is a positive outcome. Each permit holder must make the decision to carry or not carry. I will carry more often than I have in the past, and I am sure other concealed permit holders will do the same.

"It is the first right protected in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights. It is the foundation of everything else in America. If you can’t worship God, all other liberties are taken away." Although many people seem to believe that the freedom of speech...

First, climate alarmism undermines fiscal responsibility in government.

Not long ago, Colorado became a leader in the fight against religious freedom when its Civil Rights Commission, self-appointed ministers of justice and theology, decided that a shopkeeper who refuses to participate in a gay wedding ceremony must be smeared and fined out of business. A Colorado appeals court says this is kosher, finding that the brittle sensitivities of a cakeless couple outweigh the constitutional rights of Christian business owners. Now, in an effort to save everyone some time, the cultural imperialists at the Denver...

    CATO INSTITUTE ^ | 08/18/2015 | Ian Vasquez
    Today weve released The Human Freedom Index, a new report that presents a broad measure of personal, civil, and economic freedom around the world. It is co-published by the Cato Institute, the Fraser Institute (Canada) and the Liberales Institut (Germany), and is the most comprehensive index on freedom yet created for a globally meaningful set of countries.My co-author Tanja Porcnik and I look at 76 indicators in 152 countries to capture the degree to which people are free to engage in voluntary exchange and enjoy major liberties such as freedom of speech, religion, and association. We also include measures...

    But the independent senator from Vermont , who is vying to be the Democratic partys 2016 presidential nominee, has been booked to speak there next month at a university convocation. It goes without saying that my views on many issues -- womens rights, gay rights, education and many other issues -- are very different from the opinions of some in the Liberty University community, Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist who is Jewish, said Wednesday night, in comments relayed by a spokesman. But Sanders said he would like to see if we can reach consensus regarding the grotesque level of income...

    How to Destroy a Country by Paul Weston, Liberty GB "There is a revolution coming. It will not be like the revolutions of the past. It will originate with the individual and with culture, and will change the political structure only as its final act. It will not require violence to succeed, and it cannot be successfully resisted by violence. This is the revolution of the new generation." Charles Reich, The Greening of America, 1970.Every generation bemoans the slippage of standards and the 'going to the dogs' of society, but history shows that civilisations and peoples really do collapse...

    Previously posted, but I think is worth re-posting every so often The ONLY real, valid choice in life is freedom, especially when faced with tyranny. Freedom is at the heart of most issues these days even if many dont realize it. Your run-of-the-mill politician and most candidates for 2016 election see no political future in freedom. Of course that makes sense since political freedom is the absence of government and government coercion. Individual freedom or liberty is tremendously valuable and easily lost and is being drowned out by the deafening drum beats and bull horns of the Leftist MSM, government...
  • AP Poll: Americans prioritize religious liberties over gay marriage by a wide margin

    Hotair ^ | 07/21/2015 | Guy Benson
    In the wake of last month’s Supreme Court ruling establishing same-sex marriage as a nationwide constitutional right, critics and supporters of the decision alike wondered what the future might hold for Americans of faith whose objections to such unions were unswayed by the judicial outcome. Will Evangelical photographers, Muslim florists, and Catholic bakers be coerced into serving gay weddings, or will they be sued and harassed into dust by the Left’s highly-choreographed pro-“tolerance” enforcement squad? Early indicators are mixed, so expect a lot more litigation on this front in the coming years, including lawsuits against churches and religious charities....

    The owners of a pizza restaurant in Indiana and a flower shop in Washington state. A cake baker in Oregon and a fire chief in Atlanta. And right here in Iowa, the proprietors of a wedding chapel near Des Moines. Those are just some of the Americans who have suffered this year at the hands of the Rainbow Jihad. The religious freedom guaranteed by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution has been trashed in favor of You will be made to care. Well, enough is enough, says GOP presidential candidate Sen. Cruz. The Texas senator will host a...

    DE BEQUE Most motorists cruising along Interstate 70 likely dont realize De Beque has a downtown. To get there from the interstate, drivers follow a winding road over a broad stretch of the Colorado River and under a railroad bridge. A weathered welcome sign currently lists 501 residents, although those numbers have fluctuated over the years. Yet thanks to the 40-foot-high pillar adorned with a gigantic green cross and a yellow smiley face, Exit 62 off the interstate now is the first outpost for eastbound drivers in Colorado to purchase marijuana. The January opening of Kush Gardens, 4550 U.S....

    Tactics are important. History is replete with examples of superior forces being defeated by smaller armies with a better battle plan. Conservatives lose for the same reason: We have no battle plan. For years conservatives were content to be correct. Socialism doesnt work. Fascism was a horrendous failure. Communism collapsed under its own weight. Each time conservatives were vindicated in their opposition to these failed branches of the progressive ideological tree. But at the end of each battle we made the mistake of assuming the war was over. It wasnt and never will be. Every progressive victory was preceded by...
