  • Trump Releases His Plan for 2nd Amendment… Leaves Millions Furious

    11/19/2016 10:55:16 AM PST · by Enlightened1 · 44 replies
    One common criticism of billionaire businessman and President-elect Donald Trump is that he far too often speaks in vague generalities and rarely offers specifics about where he stands on the issues. That is no longer the case, at least regarding his stance on gun rights and the Second Amendment, after Trump released his official policy position on his campaign website. “The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period,” the position paper began. Trump went on to explain that the right to keep and bear arms is a right that pre-exists...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday called on the House to take up legislation to ban guns from terrorist suspects, and said Congress needs to take this step to fulfill its duty to protect all Americans from violence. "We cannot remain silent," the California Democrat said at a hearing of the Democrats' Gun Violence Prevention Task Force. "For us to honor the responsibilities that we have to protect and defend the American people, we must not only have moments of silence, we must have days of action." "To start, we can and must bring up the bipartisan Deny Firearms...

    National Journal ^ | 7/9/15 | Kaveh Waddell
    July 9, 2015 The Office of Personnel Management announced Thursday that a breach of a database that contained federal employees' background-check information led to the theft of 21.5 million individuals' Social Security numbers. And the personnel agency said it would notify the affected individuals and supply them with at least three years of credit monitoring and identity-fraud protection services. But it has not yet awarded a contract for the notifications or fraud-protection services, or even put out a request for contractors to respond to, according to multiple sources. OPM press secretary Sam Schumach said Thursday night he was not aware...

    New York City policemen are under no obligation to protect the city’s denizens from harm. So says the city in response to a lawsuit by a man who was attacked on the subway by a man with a knife. Joseph Lozito said police officers Terrance Howell and Tamara Taylor, who were on the subway at the same time, ignored Maksim Gelman as he stormed about the subway in a drug-fueled rage. They even dismissed other passengers who tried to warn them about Gelman’s actions. Lozito identified Gelman as the man who approached him telling him he was going to die...

    Senate Democrats introduced legislation on Wednesday that would ban marketing electronic cigarettes to teens. Despite their admission that the health implications of electronic cigarettes “are not yet clear,” Senators Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.), Dick Durbin (D., Ill.), Tom Harkin (D., Iowa), Richard Blumenthal (D., Conn.), and Edward Markey (D., Mass.) introduced the bill to “protect children” from the smoking simulators.

    A man who was brutally stabbed by Brooklyn subway slasher Maksim Gelman two years ago had his negligence case against the city dismissed in court yesterday, despite the fact that two transit officers had locked themselves in a motorman's car only a few feet from him at the time of the attack. Gelman stabbed Joseph Lozito in the face, neck, hands and head on an uptown 3 train in February 2011, after fatally stabbing four people and injuring three others in a 28-hour period. Lozito, a father of two and an avid martial arts fan, was able to tackle Gelman...

    Breitbart's Big Peace ^ | June 12, 2013 | Professor Peter Morici
    The revelation that the National Security Agency is tracking every phone call each American makes, and broadly mining internet data puts President Obama at the center of yet another controversy. He and supporters in the Republican leadership, not Edward Snowden, are making themselves villains. Two sets of issues are central. Do NSA practices strike a reasonable balance between the threats posed by global terrorism and right to privacy? Are these the least intrusive necessary? Are safeguards against abuse adequate? Will Edward Snowden be thrown in jail for revealing classified information under the Espionage Act or other statutes? The president argues...

    NSA leaker Ed Snowden claimed to have broken both of his legs while training for Special Forces. "In 2003, he enlisted in the US army and began a training program to join the Special Forces. Invoking the same principles that he now cites to justify his leaks, he said: "I wanted to fight in the Iraq war because I felt like I had an obligation as a human being to help free people from oppression"." That is simply not true as the statement from the Special Warfare Center & School below clearly points out. "Snowden was never a student at...

    The New American ^ | March 25th | Raven Clabough
    President Obama’s actions in Libya were already suspicious for a number of reasons. First, during Obama’s presidential campaign, he asserted that his priority was to get America out of the two wars it was already fighting. Second, Obama was a staunch critic of the Bush administration for unconstitutionally embarking on a war without congressional approval — an action of which President Obama is now guilty. Finally, as the economy is teetering on collapse, one would assume the last thing the President would want is to have to fund a third war. And yet here we are. However, once we delve...
  • Media Matters Calls for Gun Control, Carries Illegal Guns to Protect Its Founder

    Gun control isn’t about banning guns, it’s about banning people who aren’t well-connected from having guns. If you’re a Wal-Mart shopper then you’re not supposed to have a gun. If you’re David Brock, then that’s a whole other story… A staffer at left-wing Media Matters for America committed numerous felonies in the District of Columbia and around the country by carrying a firearm to defend the organization’s founder, David Brock, The Daily Caller has learned. -SNIP-TheDC has learned that by that time, Brock had armed his assistant — who had no permit to carry a concealed firearm — with a...

    Via Beltway Confidential: President Obama wants tighter gun control laws, but he does appreciate that armed Secret Service agents protect his daughters every day on their way to school. “It might come in handy to have these super locks,” Obama joked at Master Lock in Wisconsin, noting that he will soon have two teenage daughters. “For now, I’m just counting on the fact that when they go to school there are men with guns with them.”

    The Hutchinson News ^ | 1/31/12 | JIM AND DIANNE CANNON
    As Hutchinson News subscribers, we were saddened to read its editorial in the Jan. 23 edition titled "Socially irresponsible." In the United States each day over 3,800 little boys and girls are legally murdered through abortion. These children are human beings like your own child or grandchild. We read that little human beings in China, India and other areas are killed after birth because they are the wrong gender or an economic burden, much as U.S. babies are aborted daily when considered an economic or lifestyle liability by their parent(s). Ironically it seems acceptable to abort a child before birth,...

    First Lady Michelle Obama told two audiences at Democratic fundraising events on Tuesday that the justices her husband appointed to the Supreme Court will protect the right to “love whomever we choose.” She also said these justices would protect “privacy”—presumably a reference to the “right to privacy” the court invoked in the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the United States. “Let’s not forget what it meant when my husband appointed those two brilliant Supreme Court justices,

    Frank Gaffney appears on Fox Business News with Eric Bolling to discuss the civil war in Libya. First, Aaron Klein of WND reports on Samantha Power's relationship with far-leftist George Soros and their common affinity for the 'Responsibility to Protect' provision in the UN's Libya resolution. The left correctly sees this 'Responsibility to Protect' as a blow to American sovereignty; it's time all Americans get to know the implications of this dangerous new precedent.

    Earthquakes. Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Floods. Fires. Some natural disasters can be anticipated. Others can't, but we can prepare for them - and our emergency plans should include our pets. In the wake of large disasters in recent years, even federal, state and local emergency managers have realized the importance of providing information for pet owners and including the welfare of animals in their own plans. Probably one thing that many pet owners don't think about with those plans are the dangers that pets are susceptible to in the hours and days immediately following the destruction from a disaster.
