    Washington Times ^ | March 1, 2018
    Senate Democrats offered their ante Thursday in the renewed gun control debate, saying any bill must expand background checks and allow court-ordered gun confiscations while demanding a vote on a semi-automatic rifle ban Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer of New York said his Democratic caucus is prepared to provide a “very large” number of votes for those priorities. “This is what we think should be done. This is the right thing to do” Mr. Schumer said.
  • Nunes: FBI may have violated criminal statutes in FISA application to spy on Trump adviser Carter

    The FBI may have violated criminal statutes, as well as its own strict internal procedures, by using unverified information during the 2016 election to obtain a surveillance warrant on onetime Trump campaign aide Carter Page, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee charged Thursday in a letter obtained by Fox News. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., wrote in his letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions that “in this instance, it’s clear that basic operating guidance was violated.” Nunes cited the Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide (DIOG), which was created by the bureau and approved by the Justice Department,...

    So what's Ben Rhodes been up to these days? His unmaskings and leaks are over, he doesn't have Seb Gorka to lie about, and his failures as a national security official have pretty well been exposed. I kid you not: he hasn't been idle. His latest scheme is launching a "shadow" National Security Council, called "National Security Action," co-chairing the operation with Jake Sullivan. Showing that he was always the one running things in the Obama White House, despite his creative writing major, his past career as a failed novelist, and his lack of national security experience, he's herded a...

  • NAACP Helped Craft Sheriff Israel’s No Arrest Policy

    (Conservative Tribune) – Political motivations often lead to bad policy — in the case of the Broward County School District, political motivations led to deadly policy. A look at the past seven years since Scott Israel became the head of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office reveal his agenda for self-advancement by making the school district in his jurisdiction appear safer. His actions proved to do the exact opposite. During his reelection campaign in 2016, Israel proudly toted his accomplishments of “sharply reduc(ing) violent crime and burglary rates,” as well as his “innovative initiatives” to keep students in school and out...

Police are not immediately saying what happened inside the school. Police say the school has been evacuated and students have been taken to the Northwest Georgia Center. Police are advising parents to go there to pick them up. Dalton is about 90 miles (145...

    President Trump is not a particularly popular president. His job approval rating has not crossed 50 percent for a single day of his presidency. He's currently riding as high as he ever has in the RealClearPolitics poll average -- and that's 41 percent. Statistics guru Nate Silver estimates that "the approval rating at which an incumbent candidate goes from being an underdog to a favorite for re-election is somewhere in the high 40s." Furthermore, Democrats are favored to retake the House of Representatives in 2018 -- they've been dramatically outperforming their poll numbers in special elections. And there's always the...

    It is unfortunate that one political party is anti-military, anti-family, anti-religion, anti-responsibility, anti-white, anti-male, anti-business, anti-capitalism, anti-America first, anti-law and order, anti-police, anti-strong judicial sentencing, anti-death penalty, anti-free speech, anti-2nd Amendment, anti-property rights, anti-science, anti-dignity in death, anti-right to life, anti-merit, anti-flag, anti-history, anti-achievement, anti-wealth, anti-assimilation, anti-due process, anti-parenting, anti-decency, anti-drug enforcement, anti-institutionalization of mentally ill, anti-citizen, etc. and one wonders what has changed since we were young and why society is broken. The above is part of a test I am working on to give a liberal friend of mine. If anyone has any further "anti" descriptors for the...

    Democrat Phil Spagnuolo won a special election in New Hampshire's Belknap County District 3 on Tuesday night 968-841 (54%-46%). It is the 38th state legislative flip from Democrat to Republican since President Trump's inauguration. The contest for this state House race pitted Spagnuolo, a substance abuse recovery coach, against Republican Les Cartier, a former employee at the state fire marshal's office. The seat was left open after the death of Republican State Rep. Donald Flanders last September. Donald Trump won the district by a sizable 54-41 margin in 2016, four years after Barack Obama carried it by just one point,...

    The Hill ^ | February 27, 2018 | Reid Wilson
    More Democratic voters than Republicans have cast ballots ahead of next month’s primary elections in Texas, in what some party officials interpret as a new sign that a blue wave is building ahead of the midterm elections. The Texas Secretary of State’s office said 168,000 voters had cast ballots in the Democratic primary in person or by mail in the state’s ten largest counties through the end of Sunday. By contrast, 138,000 voters had cast ballots in the Republican primary. It is the first time in a decade that Texas Democrats have turned in more ballots than Republicans at this...

    Following the Florida high school shooting, House Democrats are working hard at trampling over the 2nd Amendment in the Constitution. As usual, the left’s response to a crisis is to ban guns/trample everyone’s rights via legislation instead of addressing more complicated issues, like their 4-5 decades long ‘liberal’ policies and the social/moral decay that followed. Getting back to our news story,  Rep. David Cicilline, (D-R.I.) announced on Monday that House Democrats are going  all in on what has been described as the Assault Weapons Ban of 2018. More than 150 DEMs in the House already signed on the respective bill...
  • Democratic Lunacy on Full Display in California

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has promised everything she can for the young illegal aliens and her increasingly restive left-leaning caucus. The House members are grousing privately about how their leader is ruining their brand across the country. As for the illegal aliens and their activist enablers, they overwhelmed one of her press conferences in San Francisco. They badgered her US Senate colleagues, including Chuck Schumer by protesting outside of his home in New York State. Two weeks ago, Pelosi stood for 8 hours to demand that a clean DREAM Act be attached to the latest budget-spending bill. Nothing happened....

    Just up the street, my liberal neighbors still have their #WeBelieve yard signs out front from a year ago that declare that "Kindness is Everything." And the lesbians at the top of the hill still have their "Hate Has No Home Here" yard sign displayed. So I suppose the liberal anti-NRA hate-fest after the Parkland school shooting had nothing to do with them. Just a few yahoos at CNN going for ratings gold. Yes, liberals, we just need to give the administrative state yet more power, wave our hands, and declare guns illegal, and that will end the plague of...

    You knew it was going to happen. Anytime someone uses an AR-15 for anything bad, the left decides to trot out its latest version of the assault weapon ban. They’re so panicky, they just can’t help themselves but to try and legislate away their personal boogeyman. This time, the proposal would wipe out an entire industry if it were to pass.

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott warned supporters in a fundraising email Monday about Democrats’ turnout for the March primary, which he says should “shock every conservative to their core.” So far, more Democrats have voted early than Republicans, Dallas News reports. Through Sunday in the 15 Texas counties with the most registered voters, 135,070 people had voted in the Republican primary and 151,236 in the Democratic. Compared to the first six days of early voting in 2014, Democratic turnout increased 69 percent, while Republicans saw a 20 percent increase. The Democrats even surpassed their early voting totals from the 2016 primary...

    What is behind the explosion of drug addicted, criminal, and mentally ill homeless on California's streets? Democrat policies and politics going all the way up the ladder to California Gov. Jerry Brown and the California Legislature, on up to the Obama administration, and the Obama-Holder prison reform program which subverted the law as well as Congress. The so-called reforms succeeded in promoting crime by decriminalizing many crimes, and reclassifying violent crimes as “non-violent.” Gov. Jerry Brown’s A.B. 109, “realigned” California’s overcrowded prison system, shifting responsibility of repeat, newly classified “nonviolent” offenders from state prisons to county jails. Those released were...
