  • Judge: Climate Change Imperils Wolverines and Feds Must Act

    ABC News ^ | April 4, 2016 | By MATTHEW BROWN
    The Obama administration brushed over the threat that climate change poses to the snow-loving wolverine when it denied protections for the elusive predator, a federal judge ruled Monday. U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen ordered wildlife officials to act as quickly as possible to protect the species as it becomes vulnerable to a warming planet. Wolverines need deep mountain snows to den, and scientists warn that such habitat will shrink as Earth heats up. The ruling comes two years after the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service rejected the views of many of its own scientists and decided not to protect the...

    Daily Caller ^ | 1/5/16 | Steve Guest
    President Barack Obama used communist China, which has very strict gun ownership laws, as an illustration for the benefits of enhanced gun control on a populace. Speaking at the White House on Tuesday, Obama acknowledged, “We know we can’t stop every act of violence, every act of evil in the world. But maybe we can try to stop one act of evil, one act of violence.” “Some of you may recall at the same time that Sandy Hook happened, a disturbed person in China took a knife and tried to kill, with a knife a bunch of children in China....

    he day after a horrific shooting spree by what appears to be a radicalized Muslim man and his partner in San Bernardino, California, Attorney General Loretta Lynch pledged to a group of Muslim activists that she would take aggressive action against anyone who used "anti-Muslim rhetoric" that "edges toward violence." Speaking to the audience at the Muslim Advocate's 10th anniversary dinner Thursday, Lynch said her "greatest fear" is the "incredibly disturbing rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric" in America and vowed to prosecute any guilty of what she deemed violence-inspiring speech. "The fear that you have just mentioned is in fact my...

    MADISON –Today, Representative Subeck (D-Madison), along with Representatives Terese Berceau, Melissa Sargent and Chris Taylor, circulated an Assembly bill that would ban the transportation, purchase, possession, or transfer of semiautomatic assault weapons in Wisconsin. “Our nation has watched as community after community has had to confront the tragedies that occur when weapons designed to kill large numbers of people quickly get into the hands of a dangerous person,” said Representative Lisa Subeck. “No Wisconsin community should ever have to face such a tragedy at the hands of someone armed with a semiautomatic assault weapon.” Semiautomatic assault weapons are a class...

    The radicals on the left wing of the Democrat Party continue to be the best friend of firearms manufacturers, importers and dealers, and their stated desire for gun confiscation has driven sales through the roof yet again. The Federal Bureau of Investigation processed a record number of background checks in the month of October, indicating that gun sales were at an all time high for the sixth month in a row.

In the mid-1990s Australia and Great Britain both instituted what were virtually complete bans on firearm possession.Obama referenced the bans thus: We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings.

    A top federal wildlife official said there's too much uncertainty about climate change to prove it threatens the snow-loving wolverine overruling agency scientists who warned of impending habitat loss for the so-called "mountain devil." There's no doubt that the high-elevation range of wolverines is getting warmer, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Regional Director Noreen Walsh said. But any assumption about how that will change snowfall patterns is "speculation," Walsh said. She told her staff to prepare to withdraw a proposal to protect the animals under the Endangered Species Act. Walsh's comments were contained in a May 30 memo obtained...

I hesitated watching it for a long time, mainly because I thought the producers of the movie sold out when they opted to substitute a North Korean invasion of the U.S. for what was originally planned as a more likely Chinese invasion. Supposedly they did so because the Chinese movie market was too lucrative to pass up. But, having seen it recently,...

Youd think from the critics condescending sneers that the remake is utter garbage. Preposterous, said one critic of the remakes premise that North Korea could invade the U.S. today. Outdated, said another, suggesting the plot line be relegated to the ancient Cold War and the once-upon-a-time Red Scare. The only thing thats preposterous, however, is the speed at which these obviously...

    "Red Dawn" was one of the definitive films of the 80s. In the film, American teens fight off a Russian invasion. Hollywood has decided to remake "Red Dawn", but times have changed. The enemy is no longer the Soviet Union, but China. In the movie, the mighty Chinese army invades a small town in the US. The only ones who could stop them are a group of plucky high-school students. But when they considered the Chinese box office, the execs got cold feet and changed the baddies from Chinese to North Koreans digitally in post-production.

    The film was a classic piece of 1980s teen cinema framed against the paranoid geopolitics of the cold war. Red Dawn starred Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen as all-American teens leading an armed resistance movement against Soviet troops who had invaded the US. Feeding on Hollywood's recent appetite for recycling old films, Red Dawn is being remade with a handsome new cast. But there is one vital difference: this time the invading communist army that takes over America is Chinese. The new-look enemy reflects the changes that have swept the world since the fall of the Berlin Wall. First, the...

    With Obamacare or its repackaged equivalent still looming ominously on the American sociopolitical horizon, there are few voices, at this late stage in the game, that haven't yet been raised. The Left, as always, has its handy megaphone (the mainstream media) blaring forth its tedious and untenable talking points 24/7, while the right wing marched in force on Washington, D. C., last weekend, making its presence known even within the "see-no-conservatism, hear-no-conservatism, speak-no-conservatism" confines of the Beltway itself. Still, there remains one major bloc constantly invoked in this debate which also needs to be heard from. I am talking, of...

  • Patrick Swayze's Forgotten Role

    1984’s politically incorrect Red Dawn The nation is mourning Patrick Swayze, who passed away yesterday at age 57 after a long fight with pancreatic cancer. Everyone remembers his performances in Dirty Dancing and Ghost, but few if any obituaries will commemorate his role in one of the most politically incorrect films of the last 25 years: Red Dawn.Leftists have always despised, and still revile, the film. For a quarter-century, the far-Left has claimed Ronald Reagan brainwashed the nation’s youth with this movie. Less than a year ago, David Plotz was so troubled by it that he assailed it in...

    End The War on Freedom ^ | June 18, 2003 | Bill St. Clair
    A friend of mine recently forwarded me a question a friend of his had posed: "If/when our Federal Government comes to pilfer, pillage, plunder our property and destroy our lives, what good can a handgun do against an army with advanced weaponry, tanks, missiles, planes, or whatever else they might have at their disposal to achieve their nefarious goals? (I'm not being facetious: I accept the possibility that what happened in Germany, or similar, could happen here; I'm just not sure that the potential good from an armed citizenry in such a situation outweighs the day-to-day problems caused by masses...
  • Liz Cheney Defends Birthers on Larry King

    Right Pundits ^ | Tuesday, July 21st, 2009 at 8:12 pm | Bryan McAffee
    Joan Walsh at Salon has an interesting blog post lambasting Liz Cheneys appearance on the Larry King Show tonight. She throws a fit over Cheney defending Birthers on Larry Kings show and acts like this is the biggest political suicide ever. For those who are not aware of what a birther is, this is the Conservative equivalent to the truthers on the left who claim they just want the truth about 9/11, but really just want to subtly blame George Bush for blowing up the Trade Center. Birthers believe that Obama is not qualified to be President of the United...
  • Vanity why, IMO, the COLB is not a legal document

    Ok, sticking my neck out but here's an angle no one seems to be picking up on about the COLB. The supposed COLB clearly shows (bottom left hand corner) it was printed on a November 2001 form. I was adopted. A child of ours is adopted. I worked in a county clerks office and registered births, and worked on parental relinquishment/adoption cases through CPS, and I do family genealogy. That said, here's my two cents. Hussein claims he was adopted by Soetoro in the 60's. That means papa Obama relinquished his parental rights. When an adoption order comes into the...

    "This isn't one of those things that goes away quite as easily as I'd thought," Dobbs says, saying that this isn't the "fringe" and that Obama hasn't produced a birth certificate. (He long ago released an official copy, the standard document. As often noted, it actually does go away quite easily.) "I have no idea what the reality is here," says Dobbs, later wondering, "You suppose he's undoc -- no, I wouldn't use the word 'undocumented,' wouldn't be right."

    Top-rated radio host Rush Limbaugh, upset that he's forced to report his every movement to tax authorities, blasted President Obama for failing to prove he is natural-born citizen of the United States. On his show today, Limbaugh told listeners, "As you know, I'm in the midst of another harassing audit from New York State and New York City for the last three years. We're up to 16 different ways I have to prove to New York City and state tax authorities where I have been every day not just work week but every day, for the past three...
