Gun Advocate Alan Gottlieb Supports Toomey-Manchin Based on Bad Information [updated]
A prominent gun rights activist and board member of the American Conservative Union said this weekend he supports the Manchin-Toomey compromise, even telling associates that he believed “the gun grabbers have stepped into our trap.” Alan Gottlieb, the chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and a power player within the conservative ACU, emailed nearly four dozen gun activists | Read More »
They Lied to us Then About Immigration; They are Lying Now
“First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same … Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset … Contrary to the charges in some quarters, [the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived | Read More »
Despite Veto Threat, U.S. House Votes To Freeze Obama’s Constitutionally-Challenged NLRB
Despite the threat of a Presidential veto, on Friday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Preventing Greater Uncertainty in Labor-Management Relations Act to halt the National Labor Relations Board from issuing decisions or rulings until the U.S. Supreme Court can rule on the NLRB’s legitimacy or nominees are properly confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
The bill was drafted in an effort to rein in the labor relations chaos created when Obama’s ‘recess’ appointees to the National Labor Relations Board were found to be unconstitutionally appointed by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

MO Sheriffs Not Buying Excuses In CCW Leak

Even If It Saves Just One Life: Abortion Regulation NOW
Kermit Gosnell is charged with multiple counts of murder and his motley crew of poorly-trained, unprofessional staff has testified to the number of large, live infants he brutally murdered with the snip of scissors in his clinic. The time has come to have a national conversation about sensible abortion control. Said the President after Sandy Hook: “No law or set of laws can keep our | Read More »
How to Give Vulnerable Democrats Cover on Guns
Yesterday, 16 Republicans voted along with the Democrats to break the filibuster against the Reid gun control bill (S.649). Although Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn voted against it, they failed to whip against the vote, exerting no pressure on these wayward Republicans to put the brakes on this fast moving train wreck. The end result is exactly what the Wall Street Journal editorial page advocated | Read More »
Baby-Killers Are Nation-Killers As Well
Children are tough on the Me First Society. They expect to be fed or something. They take and take and take and rarely before their 21st birthday do you start getting that ROI. Once you’ve killed God and gone down the solipsistic wormhole far enough, they become parasites, aliens in a universe populated by only Me, Myself and I. At that point you reach a certain “weness” with well-intentioned but misunderstood guys like Kermit Gosnell.
You see, if you feel like Isabella Wood (the British mother quoted atop the post) then a guy like Kermit Gosnell isn’t a baby-killer. He’s out there trying to cure cancer. Fortunately for Poor, Little Staurt, Mrs. Wood never quite acted on her feelings of hatred and resentment towards her own offspring. But you see that sentiment broadcast and amplified by leading proponents of political Leftism. Barack Obama meant what he said about not wanting his daughters to be punished with a baby.

Can You Imagine the Coverage If It Were Dogs?
“Had Kermit Gosnell killed dogs, HLN would be giving it wall to wall coverage as they do all sorts of sensational trials. Nancy Grace would be in full outrage mode every night.” Last night on twitter, Dave Weigel of Slate noted he was just hearing from twitterers about the gruesome trial of Kermit Gosnell. Those who care about the story owe a tremendous debt to | Read More »
Obama Cynically Ups The Ante With Newest Nominations To His Illegitimate NLRB
Obama’s NLRB nominations this week are nothing more than a political ploy–aimed at setting up Senate Republicans. As a result, it would be foolish for Republicans to jump on some backroom, deal-making bandwagon.
Obama’s ‘recess’ appointments were found to be unconstitutional. He undermined his own claim that they were constitutional by immediately re-nominating them. Therefore, Republicans should let the Supreme Court decide on the Block and Griffin appointments, since a three-to-two union majority does nothing at all to change the radical nature of the NLRB.

Leftist Groups Legislate Same Day Voter Registration, Election Integrity Hardest Hit
A bill just introduced in the Colorado legislature would allow voter registration through Election Day, beginning July 1 of this year. The legislation, which was drafted by Common Cause, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), America Votes, and various other left-wing organizations, contains provisions similar to fraud-plagued election policies in the state of Wisconsin. According to emails obtained by Media Trackers | Read More »
The Fundamental Flaws with Comprehensive Immigration Deform
There’s one overarching problem with all of the proposals for comprehensive immigration reform. They are being drafted by the same La Raza/big labor/big corporate welfare coalition that blew up our immigration system and engendered this problem in the first place. Having a couple of Republicans lend their names to the pack of wolves guarding the henhouse of “reform” will not change the fact that these | Read More »
Ohio Socialized Medicine Lobby Rallies Like It’s 2009
Hundreds of Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) Medicaid expansion advocates rallied in front of the Ohio Statehouse on April 11, 2013, calling for the General Assembly to expand the entitlement program at an annual cost of billions in federal spending and hundreds of millions in state spending. After years of failed “stimulus” bills, broken health reform promises, and trillion-dollar deficits from President Obama, | Read More »
Kentucky Democrat alleges Progress Kentucky behind Mitch McConnell wiretap.
I’m not going to be cute about this: Progress Kentucky is a racist organization. We know this because they went after Mitch McConnell’s wife for being, apparently, a spy for the Chinese. Progress Kentucky is a crazy organization. We know this because they thought that Ashley Judd was a viable candidate for Kentucky Senate (nobody else did, honestly). And, allegedly, Progress Kentucky is a stupid | Read More »
Missouri Secretly Shares Entire CCW List With Feds Against State Law
Missouri State Senator Kurt Schaefer confirmed today that the Missouri Highway Department did in fact share confidential CCW lists with the federal government in violation of Missouri law. The Missouri State Highway Patrol has twice turned over the entire list of Missouri concealed weapon permit holders to federal authorities, most recently in January, Sen. Kurt Schaefer said Wednesday. Questioning in the Senate Appropriations Committee revealed that on | Read More »
Lawmakers Demand Army Apologize for Anti-Christian Briefing
At least a dozen members of Congress have signed a letter demanding the Secretary of the Army rescind and apologize for a briefing that labeled Evangelical Christians and Catholics as religious extremist groups, sources on Capitol Hill tell me. “This is astonishing and offensive,” read a draft of the letter written by Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO). “We call on you to rescind this briefing and | Read More »
