  • AP Warns Black Friday Means 'Perfect Storm' of Gun Buying

    The liberals at Associated Press have a special reason to freak out over Black Friday: it’s a huge day for gun sales, and the background-checks system is severely tested. AP writer Nick Stroud even found space for the noting it’s a “perfect storm,” like the disastrous ship-sinking movie. The volume of sales means some purchasers “beat the system,” meaning there are only three business days for a background check:

    Townhall.com ^ | 11-25-2914 | Michael Schaus
    The self-righteous indignation of liberals was on full display last night, as the Grand Jury announced their decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson over the death of Michael Brown. Strangely absent was a sense of concern over the violence, destruction, and social devolution that erupted in St Louis. Instead, as expected, there was a profoundly misplaced anger over the decision of a Grand Jury that was presented with facts, eyewitness accounts, and forensic evidence. 1 – Ezra KleinEzra Klein is an idiot.

    Ann Coulter: Would It Kill You To Hire More Black Cops? (Yes) Ann Coulter August 27, 2014 As the story of Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson’s shooting of Michael Brown begins to look less clear-cut than we were led to believe by Brown’s friend, Dorian Johnson, the “voices of oppression” on MSNBC now say the real issue is that there aren’t enough blacks on the Ferguson police force. As Brown may or may not have said seconds before his death: I give up. If the Ferguson police are forced to hire more minorities and women for the sake of...

    I actually watched the initial statement and question-and-answer session with the press from beginning to end -- and what is actually "bizarre" is HuffPo writer Alana Horowitz' distorted caricature of an editorial being posited as a news account. Prosecutor McCulloch first explained the investigation/deliberation process and noted that evidence was the basis of the ultimate decision that the Grand Jury took. It was necessary, IMO for him to address the agendized speculation from those who were not there and a media that was hungry for a story. McCulloch then summarized the evidence in detail, comparing the physical evidence with the...

    Putin Is Circumspect on Re-Election but Says ‘Nyet’ to Presidency for Life By Alexander Kolyandr Nov. 23, 2014 MOSCOW—Russian President Vladimir Putin said he doesn’t aim to hold his post for life but doesn’t rule out seeking another term in 2018, a move that could make him the country’s longest-serving leader since Joseph Stalin. In an interview with state-controlled TASS news agency, the 62-year-old Mr. Putin said that for him to remain “in the president’s chair forever” is “not good, and (is) detrimental for the country, and I do not need it as well.” But when asked whether he would...

    America loves streaks. For our parents and grandparents, it was witnessing (via radio or the morning paper) Joe DiMaggio‘s 56-game hitting streak in 1941, a record that will likely never be broken. For later generations, it was Cal Ripken playing in 2,632 consecutive games — another record that won’t be touched. There are streaks in broadcasting as well. The most notable being broken two years ago after ABC’s Good Morning America finally beat NBC’s Today Show after an astounding 852 consecutive weeks at the top, a streak spanning over 16 years. But then there are dubious streaks as well, like...

In a surprise, he was named on Nov. 7 by the new Republican majority as their candidate for speaker. If elected in February, he would be the first Washoe speaker since Robert Barengo in 1981 and the first from Sparks since Chet Christiansen in 1961. The GOP members passed over Assembly Republican leader Pat Hickey of Reno to choose Hansen. It was treated as a victory for the more radical wing of the party, which took over the Clark County and state party organizations...

    Academics often believe they are the smartest people around, and they like to tell others how best to live their lives. Add the government’s power to control people’s lives and you have a dangerous combination. Americans got a taste of this elitism when MIT’s Jonathan Gruber mocked "the stupidity of the American voter." But American voters aren’t the only ones who make mistakes. Time after time, the “architect" of ObamaCare underestimated costs and overestimated how many people would be covered. Like so many Ivory Tower academics, Gruber doesn’t understand how the real world operates. Could it be that those “stupid”...

    According to the Media Research Center, on the big three network evening news shows there have only been 25 stories on the midterm elections. The time period in question is from September 1st to October 20th. If you watch ABC News, you might not even know there is a midterm election coming up. They haven’t run a single story on the midterms. Compare this to 2006 when, during the same period, the big three networks ran 159 stories. Those who claim there isn’t a left-wing media bias will have a hard time explaining why the networks ran so many stories...

    When Tina Brown was Newsweek’s editor, a magazine cover heralded the “Obama Conquest.” Now he’s just the creep in the corner office who keeps women nervous. ... There’s a word for guys who hide out in their offices; bark at underlings while barking at underlings, then, worst of all, blame everyone around them when those promises aren’t kept. The word is “weak,” and women don’t like it any more than men do.

    The nation’s Big Three TV networks that breathlessly reported the 2006 anti-Bush election which gave Democrats control of Capitol Hill have practically ignored this year’s anti-Obama midterms that are expected to return full control of the Hill to the GOP. A new and exhaustive Media Research Center analysis compared the last seven weeks of CBS, NBC and ABC news coverage with the same period in 2006 and found a 6-1 disparity between the Democratic election wave and the current election. The story count: 159-25.

    In the crucial weeks leading up to the midterm elections, the broadcast networks were obsessed with scandals, but not any of the Obama administration controversies that might influence how voters behave on Election Day. No, despite revelations in the Benghazi, IRS, Veterans Administration and Secret Service prostitution scandals it was the NFL domestic abuse scandals that captured the attention of the Big Three (ABC, NBC, CBS) networks. Since September 4 (the start of the NFL regular season) through October 15 the networks, on their evening and morning shows, devoted a total of 171 (NBC 71, CBS 55, ABC 45) stories...

    In what might be the strangest attempted 'opposition research' dump of the election cycle, the sports blog Deadspin published an item Wednesday evening accusing Colorado Republican Senate nominee of lying about having played high school football. The report, which was quickly exposed as absolutely false, didn't even attempt to conceal its authors' political agenda (content warning):

    Speculation Abounds That Ebola Will Be Used As Excuse To Implement Martial Law Christopher Agee — October 14, 2014 "...what could be more economically devastating than..." Renowned black conservative writer Mychal Massie shared a unique – if disturbing – view regarding the ultimate result of the current Ebola scare. While the disease is currently contained within the U.S., he noted that it is not the only potential outbreak facing the nation and that the current administration is doing little to reduce the threat. “We are being placed in eminent peril by disease-carrying illegal aliens flooding our shores,” he wrote in...

    Wednesday night, the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley made no mention of the results from the latest CBS News poll that gave President Obama and Democrats poor marks ahead of the November 4 midterm elections on issues ranging from the economy to ISIS to terrorism to who voters are most likely to vote for. Regarding the midterm elections, Republicans find themselves ahead of Democrats on both a generic ballot and specific issues. Republicans have a six point lead against Democrats overall (49 percent to 43 percent with those leaning left or right, 46 percent to 40 percent without) and...

    Rather characterized the current state of journalism using the term interregnum — “the old order is gone, but the new order is not yet in place.” The major concern for the future of journalism, he said, is how it will be financed in a way that provides the audience with quality, integrity-driven content in the years to come. ... Rather also noted that the measure of journalism and those who cover it is the level and quality of service provided to the public. Commercial enterprises that report the news hold the public trust, he explained, and doing so with integrity...

    Walmart announced today that as of the beginning of next year it will be dropping health insurance for 30,000 employees who work less than 30 hours per week. So why is this a good thing? It may involve some hassle for individual employees, as they’ll have to go to the exchange to figure out what plan to get. But most of those Walmart workers will likely come out ahead. Someone who’s earning $9 an hour working 30 hours a week at a Walmart would be making $13,500 a year. Depending on what their spouse makes and what state they’re in,...

    CHESTER, Va. — The Christian preschool teacher heard the news on her car radio: Same-sex marriage is now legal in Virginia. This is it, she thought. The end times. “It could happen today,” Pam Rives said on Tuesday, tidying her lemon-yellow classroom at the Ironbridge Baptist Church. “This is just another step in that direction. As society changes, it takes God out of it.” Rives, 57, has taught 4-year-olds for nearly a decade in this conservative pocket of the South, which is home to 20,000 residents. Her school, lined with October pumpkins and bubble-lettered prayers, is down the road from...
