    If you’re worried that your white, male 76-year-old candidate might not be able to cut the mustard, who do you bring in? A white, male 77-year-old candidate, of course. Or at least that seems to be the thinking of billionaire New Yorker Michael Bloomberg.According to sources close to the former New York City Mayor, Bloomberg is still “seriously thinking about” running for President, probably as a Democrat, but only if Joe Biden appears to be seriously struggling against Elizabeth Warren. Or perhaps only if Joe Biden drops out of the race. (CNBC) Mike Bloomberg might end up running for...

    Next week we anticipate that Assembly Bill 291 will get pushed through the Legislature here in Carson City just like Senate Bill 143 was before it. We are concerned that our fellow Nevadans may not be familiar with the full story as to why we are slowing having our Second Amendment rights eroded. New York City has had a major influence on gun policy in Nevada since 2014. That is when former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg began his long-term plan to greatly restrict every Nevadans ability to obtain a gun. Rather than addressing the problems in his own...
  • San Francisco Expands Travel Ban to Pro-Life States

    San Francisco expanded its city-funded travel and contracting bans to 22 states with pro-life laws. The 22 states include Texas, Massachusetts, and Florida. The move marks the expansion of an ordinance enacted in August that prohibited city-funded travel "to states that have enacted laws that prohibit abortion prior to the viability of the fetus" and contracting with companies headquartered in those states. The ban initially covered eight states, according to Courthouse News, but that list has now expanded to cover nearly half the country. City supervisor Vallie Brown denounced pro-life reforms, such as late term abortion limits, as "an assault...

    With all the rancor in politics these days, the CNN/New York Times Democratic debate on Tuesday night delivered a rare moment of comity: Twelve Democrats agreed, apparently without compensation, to appear in a Donald Trump ad. Other points on which the Democrats came together in peace and harmony: -- Trump should be impeached. -- Abortion is great. -- Obamacare sucks. At least were all finally agreed on Obamacare! Obamacare has given us a system -- to quote Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont -- which is dysfunctional, which is cruel, 87 million uninsured, 30,000 people dying every single year, 500,000 people...

    WESTERVILLE, OhioAt an event in an ice cream shop downtown in this small suburb of Columbus, hours before Democrats presidential debate blocks away, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez held court with a dozen or so young, rising Ohio Democrats to declare that the national party was here for a reason. Were here in Ohio because Ohios a battleground, Perez said, and Im confident we can win Ohio. Perez wasnt just trying to cheer up the troops. He was weighing in on a live, controversial question: Should Democrats give up on Ohio? For more than half a century, this question...

    A Democrat seeking the party's 2020 presidential nomination faced sharp criticism on social media Saturday after linking that day's massacre in El Paso, Texas, to President Trump's rhetoric. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., one of nearly two-dozen Democrats hoping to block Trump's bid for a second term in the White House, made her remarks at a labor forum event in Las Vegas. The individuals who do the shootings are responsible," Klobuchar said, referring to mass shootings such as the one in El Paso that left 20 dead and 26 injured, "but I do think Trump's rhetoric has fueled more hate in...

    A question about Ellen DeGeneres and former President George W. Bushs friendship drew the ire of Democratic presidential candidates and viewers alike following Tuesday nights debate hosted by CNN and The New York Times. After the three-hour televised event, viewers and some Democratic hopefuls slammed debate moderator Anderson Coopers final question of the evening, which did not focus on what many thought could have been more important issues, like climate change. Last week, Ellen DeGeneres was criticized after she and former President George W. Bush were seen laughing together at a football game. Ellen defended their friendship, saying, Were all...

    The latest push by the Left-wing Communists in the Garbage Party to destabilize our cities and our country is to attack law enforcement on the local level. That means electing progressives to the position of mayor and prosecuting attorney while attempting to get similar people hired on as police chiefs. The effort is already paying dividends. Big cities from coast-to-coast are experiencing record disrespect for the law as well as the law enforcers the men and women who occupy the thin blue line between civil society and total chaos.

    On Monday, ABC News got caught lying about having a video allegedly showing Turkish troops slaughtering Kurdish civilians in northern Syria, when, in fact, it was video from a gun range in Kentucky. Seemingly thinking a pair of weak apologies on Twitter were enough, the liberal broadcast network refused to correct the record and inform viewers on their journalistic malpractice during that evenings World News Tonight. As NewsBusterss Kristine Marsh reported, Sundays World News Tonight teed up the contents of the video as being a product of President Trumps foreign policy, declaring, This video right here appearing to be showing...

    Her gun control, made public in August on Medium, shows Warren believes the current ten percent excise tax on firearms is too low. She wants to raise that tax to 30 percent while increasing the tax on ammunition to 50 percent. Because excise taxes are paid directly by the consumerthe taxes are added to the price of the goodsthis means a $500 gun would immediately cost $515 and the price for a $20 box of ammo would immediately rise to $30.

    If you were an ATF agent or prosecutor handlingthe case of Joseph Roh, you probably lost quite a bit of sleep over the past five years. Thats because Roh, who was charged in 2014 with illegally manufacturing and selling AR-15 rifles in California, recently almost forced a judge to upend decades of ATF precedent and policy.Mr. Rohs attorney made a surprisingly simple argument in court that got him off the hook and it almost demolished the ATFsvery definitionof what a gun is, too. Through a series of concessions and deal-making, Roh walked free. The ATF agreed conditionally to drop...

The former Texas congressman reiterated his support for punitive tax measures against churches or affiliated services that believe marriage is between a man and a woman, a position he introduced at CNN's Equality Town Hall on Thursday evening. NBC host Geoff Bennett asked O'Rourke how he would implement this plan given that the government "can't just dole out punishments on theological grounds." "You are free to...

    Mike Bloomberg has indicated to associates in recent weeks that Joe Bidens recent struggles are making him rethink his decision to stay out of the 2020 Democratic primary, according to people familiar with the discussions. Bloomberg is in if Biden is out, says one source. Biden has not indicated any desire to drop out any time soon. Bloomberg could be in for a showdown with Elizabeth Warren, whether he runs or not, as he has been one of her biggest critics on the Democratic side. I think its something he wants. He has not been shy about that, one of...

    The fake news mainstream media is working overtime to push their propaganda to smear President Trump. The latest lies coming from the media is the footage of Turkish fighters in northern Syria.

The video is from a Knob Creek Machine Gun shoot in America back in April 2016 and loaded in 2017 to YouTube. You can see the onlookers watching the entire display.
