    Veteran Republican strategist Karl Rove warned House Republicans that they will only hurt themselves if they allow the government to shut down this fall amid budget battles within their conference and with the Senate and White House. “Republicans are going to shoot themselves in the foot in the run-up to the 2024 election if they continue to think that shutdowns are a great way to put themselves in front of the American people,” Rove said in a Fox News interview on Sunday.

    1 - Eleven teens die each day because of texting while driving. Maybe it's time to raise the age of Smart Phone ownership to 21. (FACT) 2 - If gun control laws actually worked, Chicago would be Mayberry, 3 - The Second Amendment makes more women equal than the entire feminist movement. 4 - Legal gun owners have 300 million guns and probably a trillion rounds of ammo. Seriously, folks, if we were the problem, you'd know it. 5 - When JFK was killed, nobody blamed the rifle. 6 - The NRA (National Rifle Association) murders 0 people and receives...

    Polk County, Florida, Sheriff Grady Judd is telling residents of his county to protect their homes by shooting looters until they look “like grated cheese.” Grady told FOX News on Friday, “People have a right to be safe in their homes. They have a right for their property to be safe, even when part of their home may be torn away, and these looters, that’s unacceptable.” Grady went on to encourage Polk county residents to defend their property from looters and to make sure looters understand there could be a high price to pay for taking advantage of hurricane victims.

    Family members of murder defendant Isaiah Rivera-Perez and shooting victim Jaiden Connor filled nearly every seat in a Hillsborough County Superior Court hearing room Tuesday morning as a trial opened that will hinge on the state’s self-defense law. Homicide prosecutor Nicholas Chong Yen showed the jury a home security video that captures Connor, 17, running down Central Street and collapsing, where police found him with a bullet hole in his back. “He shot Jaden Connor in the back. He shot Jaden Connor while Jaden was running away from him,” said Chong Yen, an assistant New Hampshire attorney general. “That is...

    Modern school shootings are an exceptionally abhorrent phenomenon that we got along just fine without for the first couple of centuries of U.S. history. So, it’s wholly reasonable to want them gone. It’s not like America was suffering from any lack of the beneficial side effects of school shootings before the man with the brain tumor climbed the U. of Texas clock tower in 1966 and the “I Don’t Like Mondays” girl opened fire at the San Diego elementary school in 1979. School shootings and other heavily publicized mass killings are an intensely grotesque problem, often engineered by obsessive notoriety-seekers...

    Former President Donald Trump wanted to "shoot" demonstrators protesting the May 2020 police killing of George Floyd, according to a forthcoming book written by former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. In June 2020, Trump became increasingly frustrated with the fury ignited by the death of Floyd while in custody of the Minneapolis police, Esper wrote in the book, "A Sacred Oath: Memoirs of a Secretary of Defense During Extraordinary Times," which is slated for release on May 10.
  • Alec Baldwin claims he has been 'EXONERATED' by report blaming Rust production team for shoddy safety that led to star fatally-shooting cinematographer - even though he was a producer on the movie

    Alec Baldwin has claimed he's been exonerated over the death of a cinematographer he accidentally shot dead by a new report blasting producers of the film whose set witnessed the tragedy. New Mexican Occupational Health and Safety Bureau officials levied the maximum fine against the producers of Rust, the western movie on whose set Halyna Hutchins was shot and killed by Baldwin in October 2021. Executive producers were hit with a $136,793 film - the maximum available. Baldwin himself was a producer, but highlighted a passage in the investigation which said that he was involved in the script and casting...

    On this week’s broadcast of NBC’s “This Week,” Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) said President Donald Trump’s 2016 proclamation that Trump could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue in New York City to be true. Murphy said, “I think our only choice now is to take this to the American public. Ultimately, these members of the Senate want to get re-elected. As you have seen, public opinion shift very quickly. As you see, more Republicans going to the bunker-like that, and the president go deeper into trying to get more countries to interfere in our elections. I think public...

    In 1988, a US warship shot down an Iranian commercial plane, killing all onboard. The American captain and his crew were hailed as heroes, Scotland suffered, Libyans were punished, and we are still living with the effects today. It began when Iraq invaded Iran on September 22, 1980. America sided with Iraq, and by the time it ended on August 20, 1988, about a million people were dead. What ended the war, however, was an event that took place in the Strait of Hormuz. As the world gets 20% of its oil through this maritime route, the Iraq-Iran War extended...
