    “Ideally, handguns, which account for more than half of all homicides in the United States, should be banned completely, but we recognize that this is not currently politically feasible,” wrote Dr. Karl P. Adler in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). For years, the confiscationist left have fought a losing battle in their attempt to repeal the rights of 100 million American gun owners. Even with the benefit of what dedicated gun grabbers undoubtedly considered a God-send–the brutal murder of 20 children in Newtown, Conn.–the right to keep and bear arms has been so jealously guarded, and the...

    Wow. In one of the best smack-downs of Barack Obama I have ever seen, Clary Daly, an angry Irish politician calls Obama a “war criminal” for supporting the radical rebels in Syria while talking about “peace” in Ireland. Remember, Obama just recently publicly blasted Catholic schools in Ireland, blaming them for division — while turning a blind eye to the fact that he’s soon to be dumping money and weapons on radical Islamic radicals in Syria. Wouldn’t it be amazing if more of our own politicians stood up to the hypocrisy and the lies and the destructive actions of Obama?...

    've decided to reprint a piece of work I did nearly five years ago, because it seems very relevant today given Hillary Clinton's performance in the Benghazi hearings. Back in 2008 when she was running for president, I interviewed two erstwhile staff members of the House Judiciary Committee who were involved with the Watergate investigation when Hillary was a low-level staffer there. I interviewed one Democrat staffer and one Republican staffer, and wrote two pieces based on what they told me about Hillary's conduct at the time. I published these pieces back in 2008 for North Star Writers Group, the...

    It has all the outward trappings of another Arab Spring: tens of thousands of demonstrators, a permanent protesters' "camp", and megaphoned demands for the removal of another "dictator". Yet the slogans that now ring out on the streets of Iraq each Friday are the voice of a community not best known for championing civil rights - be it for themselves or anyone else. Instead, they are the disenfranchised members of Saddam Hussein's Sunni minority - the Muslim sect that enjoyed three decades of privileged status under his rule, and which spearheaded the long and bloody insurgency against British and American...

    Nearly three thousand U.S. college students went online in the search for a 'sugar daddy' to fund their education last year. Georgia State University and New york University were the top two schools for female students to seek out men willing to fund their tuition, with Pennsylvania's Temple University following closely behind for third place. According to the website SeekingArrangement.com, 2012 saw a 58per cent growth in female students signing up to be 'sugar babies,' which the site describes as 'attractive, intelligent, ambitious and goal oriented' women seeking 'financial pampering.'

The Material Girl asked during Saturday night's performance: "Who's registered to vote?" She added: "I don't care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama." Drawing boos in touting Obama over Republican Mitt Romney, Madonna followed: "Seriously, I don't care who you vote for ... Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote."

    WARWICK, R.I. -- A year-long dispute has landed two neighbors in court. At issue: Willy's the cockatoo's salty language. In court documents, Kathleen Melker of 55 Harris Ave. asserts she was within earshot of Willy, her neighbor's pet, when he repeatedly called her "whore." The incident, she says, punctuated an acrimonious relationship with Lynne Taylor of 51 Harris Ave. that she says included Taylor pelting rocks over the fence and threats to capture Melker's cat and "drown it in the Bay." No charges have been filed.

    A former Texas high school teacher was convicted of multiple felonies after having sex with five 18-year-old students at her home. The conviction was a victory for the prosecution but it was a setback for the feminist movement. It was also a setback for the homosexual uncivil rights movement, which seeks unlimited authority to redefine relationships among consenting adults. Brittni Nicole Colleps, 28, of Arlington, was found guilty of 16 counts of having an inappropriate relationship between a student and teacher. In Texas, this second-degree felony is punishable by two to 20 years in prison per count. Because none of...

    President Obama came to the right person to raise money Thursday night: “Sex and the City” icon Sarah Jessica Parker. In one memorable episode, she said (as Carrie), “I like my money right where I can see it -- hanging in my closet.” The president probably would prefer it in his campaign coffers. At the Manhattan home of Parker and her husband, Matthew Broderick, Obama raised about $2 million, with 50 people paying $40,000 each to attend. Broderick had to work – he’s starring in the Gershwin musical “Nice Work if You Can Get It” on Broadway. Others in attendance...

When House Republicans would not let her testify as an expert on birth control, Democrats paraded her out and she received unabashedly favorable publicity. The Washington press loves these liberal dog-and-pony shows. From ABC: Fluke’s prepared testimony included details of fellow female students at Georgetown University who’d been denied contraceptive coverage because of the university’s Catholic affiliation. Fluke said that one of her friends experienced complications stemming from ovarian cysts that could have...

Though the contender for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination said Wednesday that his campaign would "do what they can" to release more information about payments he received as a consultant from the government-backed mortgage group, Hammond backtracked later in the evening. When asked via email whether the campaign would release more Freddie Mac-related documents or if a fact sheet it released in the afternoon was the last word on the issue, Hammond responded to CNN, "last word."

    Sluthood wasn't always considered a virtue. Most normal, rational people look at sleeping around as something sad and wrong. It's not healthy, physically or mentally, it can be damaging to a young girl's reputation, and it can also be incredibly dangerous. Women that sleep around oftentimes end up feeling used and regret their choices when they get older and decide to settle down. Other women end up contracting STDs, which may or may not be treatable. For these reasons and more, being a slut is understandably looked down upon -- it can be genuinely harmful. Today's pseudo-feminists, however, have...

    Although many California voters might not know it, the state could make history next month by electing Meg Whitman as its first woman governor. The Republican candidate certainly hasn't made much of that fact in her speeches or paid ads, and neither has her Democratic rival Jerry Brown. In fact, gender had largely stayed out of this high-profile race, as Whitman and Brown tussled over creating jobs and tackling the state's multibillion-dollar budget deficits. That all changed last week when a member of the Brown campaign – a woman – was overheard in a voice mail recording suggesting that his...

    Why would the union that represents LAPD officers even think of endorsing liberal Jerry Brown to reprise his disastrous turn as California's governor? Because politics is full of compromising positions. There is a story, probably apocryphal, often told about Winston Churchill. It’s the one in which he’s in conversation with an aristocratic woman, to whom he makes a proposal. “Madam,” he says, “would you sleep with me for five million pounds?” “I suppose I would,” says the woman. “We would have to discuss the terms, of course.” “Would you sleep with me for five pounds?” asks Churchill. The woman is...

When asked about the quote, the source inadvertently said that it was Brown's wife when stating, "The person...

And will the fallout over the controversy boost Whitman's case against Brown? . . .

    In a brief statement this afternoon, high-profile attorney Gloria Allred, a staunch supporter of equal rights, entered the conversation about the recent controversy, in which an unidentified associate of Brown called gubernatorial hopeful Meg Whitman a "whore."

    The campaign for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown said this morning that the Democratic candidate did not suggest calling Republican rival Meg Whitman a "whore" on a voicemail recording to the Los Angeles Police Protective League that was made public last night. Brown spokesman Sterling Clifford, however, said he didn't know who used the word in the recording. "Obviously, it's not the kind of thing people should say, and we've apologized for it," Clifford said. "It wasn't Jerry."
