    Baltimore Sun ^ | September 20, 2018 | Lillian Reed and Ian Duncan
    Authorities in Harford County were still trying to determine late Thursday why Snochia Moseley opened fire at the Rite Aid warehouse where she had taken a temporary job, killing three employees and fatally wounding herself. Authorities have not identified the victims. [Snip] Authorities and court records identified Moseley as female, as did a Facebook profile in her name. But in Facebook messages Coley shared with The Baltimore Sun, Moseley described herself as transgender, although it was not clear whether Moseley preferred to be addressed using masculine or feminine pronouns. In messages that the friend said were sent in December 2016,...

    Brett Kavanaugh is a casualty of an anything-goes political resistance. Consider the spectacle: Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court, the embodiment of a modern rule of law, is being decided in the Senate by the medieval practice of trial by ordeal, such as surviving immersion in fire or ice. Trial by ordeal was outlawed by the Lateran Council in 1215. Or worse, the standards of the mob in the Roman Colosseum, turning thumbs up or down on the combatants. Though unlike the Senate Democrats, the Roman mob at least had an open mind. Incidentally, the standard trope that...

    A Michigan teen accused of fatally stabbing a classmate was “smiling and laughing” during the attack, according to reports. Two dozen students watched in horror as Tanaya Lewis, 17, killed Danyna Gibson, 16, with a kitchen knife in a classroom Wednesday at Fitzgerald High School in Warren, Mich., Fox 2 Detroit reported Friday. “Witnesses said the defendant was smiling and laughing as she was chasing the victim,” Detective Donald Seidel of the Warren Police Department told a judge Friday, WXYZ-TV reported Saturday. One blow penetrated Danyna’s heart, the station reported. Prosecutors said Lewis screamed, “I’m going to kill her” as...

    American denim giant Levi Strauss & Co. announced Tuesday that it is launching a series of new initiatives to benefit groups working to prevent gun violence. Levi Strauss’ CEO and President Chip Bergh wrote it Fortune on Tuesday that the company “simply cannot stand by silently when it comes to issues that threaten the very fabric of the communities where we live and work.” “You may wonder why a company that doesn’t manufacture or sell guns is wading into this issue, but for us, it’s simple,” Bergh wrote. “Americans shouldn’t have to live in fear of gun violence. It’s an...
  • Obama repeatedly stutters, talks about himself 79 times while campaigning for candidates

    There were times during a Thursday rally Barack Obama couldn’t help but talk about himself, even though he was supposed to be talking about other people. There were other times he could barely talk at all. During the Cleveland rally for Rich Cordray and Betty Sutton, Obama repeatedly talked about himself, despite the candidates sitting behind him. Several times, he stuttered as he attempted to attack President Trump and the success of recent Republican initiatives.
  • Shooting holes in agenda journalism

    American Thinker ^ | 9/17/18 | John David Powell
    Lots of folks like to throw around the term “fake news” to describe stories they do not like or stories that are, well, fake. I prefer the term “agenda journalism” because it does not make a judgment on the veracity of the reporting, and it can be easier to spot than the fake stuff that always has an agenda. The Huffington Post ran such a piece last week called “Gun owners more likely to vote than non-gun owners.” Do not accuse me of journalism profiling, because I believe even the editors of the HuffPost would eagerly agree they have a...
  • WHAT I SAW GAVE ME A LITTLE HOPE

    I came off the Metro in Washington, DC two days ago and as I was making my way to the escalator to catch my commuter bus, I saw something that gave me a little bit of hope. Ahead of me was a black female, short, in her 20's, and toting a backpack. She had a Velcro tag on her backpack; a black tag with white lettering. It read I CARRY A GUN BECAUSE A COP IS TOO HEAVY. I got her attention and said I liked it. She laughed and said thank you. I then said I'm surprised you haven't...

    Campaign finance watchdog groups are planning to file a complaint with the Federal Election Commission asking it to investigate whether Montana GOP Senate nominee Matt Rosendale and the National Rifle Association were illegally coordinating in the race.The Campaign Legal Center and Giffords, the nonprofit political arm of former Rep. Gabby Giffords’s (D-Ariz.) organization, said that they’re filing the complaint on Friday or on Monday. The complaint is being filed after a Daily Beast story published audio it obtained that suggests Rosendale knew the NRA would be involved in the marquee Senate race, saying it had obtained it from an unspecified...

    (Richard) Ramirez was a serial killer who terrorized the populations of Los Angeles and San Francisco from June of 1984 to August of 1985, claiming 14 victims. The crimes were huge news at the time. Few Americans had seen anything like it in their lifetimes. Ramirez was so aggressive and cocky, scrawling pentagrams on walls in victims’ homes and even making his final known rape victim swear allegiance to Satan. The public was desperate to see him captured. By July of 1985, Ramirez had already committed some 13 murders, 5 rapes including sodomy, and 3 attempted murders, yet it seemed...

    Police have responded to the Trump International Hotel in Washington DC after an anonymous threat to shoot up a meeting there supporting President Donald Trump. The threat was made ahead of the planned Tuesday evening event by an anonymous Twitter account that supports the Democratic Socialists, a far-left political group. 'I am coming with a gun and i expect to get numerous bloodstained MAGA hats as trophies,' the account wrote, referencing the Trump campaign slogan 'Make American Great Again'. The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the threat, department spokesman Hugh Carew told DailyMail.com, adding that no further details were immediately...

    Several New York politicians, particularly Governor Cuomo and Maria T. Vullo, have verbally attacked the National Rifle Association (NRA), written letters to state regulatory agencies, industries regulated by New York State, and advised the industries to evaluate whether they should keep the NRA as a customer. The NRA has filed a lawsuit on First Amendment grounds. The issue is whether the state government can single out a particular entity it politically disagrees with, and use its regulatory power against that entity.Such use would effectively silence political foes, nullifying First Amendment protections.  The New Republic, a leftist publication, noted the...

    "The pair have a storied bromance, which began when Mr Trudeau visited the White House for a state dinner last year" Even going-for-Trump-jugular Michael Moore realized that anti-gun activist David Hogg got it bass-ackwards by asking Canadians to meddle in American elections. Bass-ackwards because former President Barack Obama got away with meddling in Canada’s 2015 federal election by sending his top campaign team to help Justin Trudeau get elected as Canada’s prime minister.

    Jim Carrey delivered a succinct one-minute lecture on Canadian health care to American audiences on Real Time With Bill Maher on Friday night. Fed up with what he perceives as inaccurate descriptions of the Canadian health-care system, Carrey made it clear that he thinks the country's medical care is in great shape and didn't mince words in his brief monologue. "I grew up in Canada, OK? We have socialized medicine," said a Nike-wearing Carrey to Maher's audience. "I'm here to tell you this bulls**t line you get on all of the political shows from people is that it's a failure....

    It took Michael Moore to correct anti-gun protester David Hogg’s proposal for Canadians to meddle in American elections. After screening Moore’s anti-Trump “Fahrenheit 11/9” at the Toronto Film Festival, Hogg and other Parkland, Florida high school students joined the millionaire filmmaker on stage during a Q&A. “I have a question for you guys,” Hogg said after grabbing the mic from Moore. “Who’s ready to save America?” The Canadian audience cheered. “Who’s ready to make America the country we say it is on paper, and make it the actual country that it wants to be?” he asked. Hogg was the critical...

    Image from the CBC Canada's leftist government is considering a complete ban on handguns, similar to the one that exists in England.  It is a precise example of the "slippery slope" that United States supporters of the Second Amendment say they wish to avoid. Canada instituted mandatory registration of handguns in 1934. In  the entire history of the Canadian handgun registration, not one case has been found where the handgun registry solved or prevented a crime of violence. In 1993, Canada outlawed about half of the handguns on the handgun registry. The police in Toronto do not believe a...

    Once upon a time, Corey Anthony Booker seemed like “a statesman.” As mayor of Newark, New Jersey, he talked to everybody, made deals, comported himself with dignity. He stood out from the pack; he was seen as an up-and-comer. Yet move him to the Senate and place him in front of national cameras? He has become something of a loon. “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment,” he said, referring to his leakage of confidential information about Supreme Court nominee Brett Michael Kavanaugh during this week’s hearings. Say what?...

The 29-year-old is in jail awaiting trial on charges that she worked to infiltrate conservative politics via the National Rifle Association (NRA) as part of a plan to influence the US government. She has pleaded not guilt

    Quick action by a vigilant pro-Second Amendment student at the University of Kansas has resulted in shutting down a professor’s anti-gun syllabus. After KU senior Victoria Snitsar shared a copy of the offending syllabus with university officials, the university forced the professor to remove language from his class syllabus that is not “in compliance with university guidelines and state law.” In his syllabus history professor Eric Rath requested students “not bring firearms to class or anywhere I am present.” Referencing widely discredited and biased gun control claims, Rath’s syllabus warned students that carrying a firearm could increase a student’s likelihood...

"YouTube removed my fundraising video and my press conference," Wilson told the Washington Free Beacon. "They're saying it's ‘promotion of the sale of firearms.' They removed every video I've ever made on ghost gunner and Defcad. Press conference, attended by the NYT and AP is still gone." An email from YouTube to...
