    A brand new PEW Research Center survey last week shows that gun ownership by households is up to 42 percent — an increase of 5 percentage points in the past four years. Yet, few mainstream media outlets announced the increase. In fact, the media goes out of its way to find polls claiming that Americans are turning away from guns. In my book, "War on Guns" the impression, the impression given by the media is that gun owners are a small, fringe group. Maybe they are hoping that this will have an impact on policy. As General Social Survey director...

    """Antifa Website Encourages ‘All Manner of Physical Violence’ Against Trump Supporters and Capitalists""" The Antifa website It’s Going Down has become the de facto resource for anarchists and “anti-fascist” activists currently engaging in sporadic street battles across the United States against Trump supporters and the government. The site calls for violence against capitalists and anyone it labels a “fascist.” It features posters for self-identified anarchists that call for Trump supporters to be stabbed. A poster published in April shows the silhouette of a man with a Make America Great Again hat and a Pepe the Frog lapel pin being cornered...

    Some hope that the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and others last Wednesday will lead to more civility in politics. It’s clear that the attack was politically motivated — the Democratic shooter even carried a hit list of Republicans. The political viciousness has been everywhere. While some will blame the violence on the grotesque picture of Kathy Griffin holding the President’s severed head or a play where the president is being stabbed to death, this Sunday Jill Abramson, the former chief editor of the New York Times, told CNN that it was “President Trump and the congressional leadership...

  • American Moviegoers See a Pro-Choice Bias in Hollywood (Poll)

    When it comes to the topic of abortion in films, the older the audience, the more likely they are to see pro-choice messages. Is Hollywood pushing a pro-choice agenda? Americans seem to think so. Sure, movies like The Cider House Rules, Dirty Dancing and Fast Times at Ridgemont High make a strong case for legalized abortion, but pro-life groups have praised the likes of Arrival, Juno and even the raunchy comedy Knocked Up — all movies where lead female characters choose to give birth rather than abort. When push comes to shove, though, moviegoers see more pro-choice messages in films...

    Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) spoke with Breitbart News’ Washington Political Editor Matt Boyle on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM Patriot Channel 125 on Saturday about the media bias that’s reached unprecedented levels since President Donald Trump was elected and poses a risk to the democracy it is tasked to protect. “I think the media bias today is a threat to our democracy for this reason,” said Smith, who is the chairman of the House Media Fairness Caucus. “If the American people don’t get the facts then they can’t make good decisions. “And if the American people can’t make good decisions...

    Illinois Review ^ | June 16, 2017 | Nancy Thorner & Ed Ingold
    Thorner & Ingold: What about those Trump tapes? Much ado about nothing By Nancy Thorner & Ed Ingold - Did President Trump record his meetings with Director Comey, or did he not? That is the question burning in the minds of Democrats. More important, it had a profound effect on Comey’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary committee. Comey’s testimony was honest, if not perfectly forthright. He confirmed that he had told Trump, on three separate occasions, that the President was not under investigation. This is in direct conflict with statements leaked to the New York Times, possibly by Comey or...

    So much for unity. Just when a debate erupts over the role of media and mendacity in the shooting of a Republican congressman, the New York Times revives a discredited theory about the six-year-old shooting of a Democratic congresswoman. This was so egregious and embarrassing that the Times editorial page was compelled yesterday to run a correction.

    Eric Schmidt, billionaire chair of Alphabet, Inc. the parent company of Google, led a massive fundraising drive in December for leftist analytics firm Civis Analytics, represented by a law firm that partnered with Justice Department special prosecutor Robert Mueller—raising questions about Mueller’s impartiality in his so-called “Russia probe” into President Donald J. Trump’s campaign. In March 2014, WilmerHale announced Mueller would join its firm as a partner. Mueller left his position in May after the DOJ appointed him as a special prosecutor to look into alleged “ties” between President Trump’s campaign and Russia. WilmerHale represented Civis Analytics during a $22...

    In federal court today, CNN has filed a lawsuit seeking to force the FBI to turn over former Director James Comey's memos documenting his conversations with President Donald Trump, says ... CNN: 'Despite high public interest in the content of the memos, Comey's testimony that the records are not classified and a ruling from the Justice Department that the FBI should expedite CNN's FOIA request for the memos, the FBI has not provided either the documents or a reason to withhold them, according to the lawsuit filed in the US District Court for the District of Columbia.

    Although he was seriously wounded, it is a lucky thing that Rep. Steve Scalise made it to baseball practice on Wednesday morning. Due to his position as majority whip, armed Capitol Hill Police accompanied Scalise. This security detail saved the lives of his House colleagues and two senators. As Rep. Mike Bishop (R-Mich.), told WWJ radio in Detroit, “The only reason — the only reason — why any of us walked out of this thing: By the grace of God, one of the folks here had a weapon to fire back and give us a moment to find cover. Because...

    Before the facts were even known about Wednesday morning’s 7 AM shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, gun control advocates were already calling for more stringent laws. ■ David Frum, senior editor for the Atlantic, called for background checks, gun licensing and registration, long gun permits, limits on magazine size, and restrictions on open carrying of guns. ■ Windsor Mann, a columnist for USA Today, blamed “easy access to deadly weapons.” ■ Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe blamed the attack on “too many guns” and immediately called for more gun control. We don’t even know yet whether these laws could conceivably have...

    Megyn Kelly, the host of NBC’s “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly,” was slammed for interviewing InfoWars’ host Alex Jones during her upcoming show. Kelly was pulled from hosting an annual gala put on by the family members of the Sandy Hook victims. “Sandy Hook Promise cannot support the decision by Megyn or NBC to give any form of voice or platform to Alex Jones and have asked Megyn Kelly to step down as our Promise Champion Gala host,” Nicole Hockley, who is the co-founder and managing director, said in a statement, reported the Daily Caller. “It is our hope that...

    Late last month, the Manchester bombing left 22 dead and 59 injured. Last weekend, another 7 were killed and 48 injured in London by a truck and knife attack. It was yet another example of Muslim terrorists killing people. President Trump in his tweets over the last couple days has pushed against the London mayor's claim that there is “no reason to be alarmed” and the need for “extreme vetting” of those from seven high-risk countries. Clearly, the vast majority of Muslims live their lives in peace and are great neighbors. But that can’t take away from radical Muslims being...

    When it comes to issues such as sanctuary cities, it is impossible to avoid controversy. When President Donald Trump appoints anyone to help oversee the issue, it will be controversial, especially if the appointment promises to be very effective one. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is scheduled to serve as an assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security. He will be working at the Office of Partnership and Engagement, which coordinates outreach to state and local governments. Clarke’s understanding of domestic law enforcement issues makes him the perfect candidate. He joins President Trump in opposing sanctuary cities and in...
