After the slaughter of innocent young lives in Connecticut, the country was promised a national dialogue that would include some very “tough questions.” Sadly, what we´ve gotten instead is the same old political posturing about whether the country will impose new restrictions on the access to guns. In fact, the debate we are now having — versus the one we should be having — is not really a debate at all. And the reason it´s a phony debate is because limiting gun sales would do absolutely nothing to prevent the next lunatic from gaining access to one or more of Headline corrected by staff.
A lawsuit filed last week in Harris County claims the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People did not pay its bill at the downtown Houston Four Seasons Hotel for its 103rd Annual Convention in July. The hotel claims it is owed $99,500 for room, banquet and finance charges. The convention, most notably recognized by national media as the event where Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney drew loud boos for his health care reform views, was held July 11 at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
Retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, the former head of the U.S. Special Forces Command, says infantry and other front-line units are no place for women, and it has nothing to do with their courage or capabilities: "The people making this decision are doing so as part of another social experiment, and they have never lived nor fought with an infantry or Special Forces unit," Boykin said in a statement released by the conservative Family Research Council, for whom he now works. "These units have the mission of closing with and destroying the enemy, sometimes
PRINCETON, NJ -- During his fourth year in office, an average of 86% of Democrats and 10% of Republicans approved of the job Barack Obama did as president. That 76-percentage-point gap ties George W. Bush´s fourth year as the most polarized years in Gallup records. The list of most polarized years makes it clear that Obama´s highly polarized ratings may be as much a reflection of the era in which he is governing as on Obama himself. The last nine presidential years -- the final five for Bush and Obama´s
The View ladies — minus conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck — were clearly pleased with Hillary Clinton‘s performance during Wednesday’s congressional Benghazi hearings.The ***** is back!” exclaimed Whoopi Goldberg, echoing the glowing sentiments of a few of her co-hosts and an audience that wildly applauded after viewing footage of Clinton’s heated exchange with Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI). “Amen!” shouted guest host Stacy London. “Now I think I might vote for that woman if she ran for president,” said Sherri Shepherd. Hasselbeck, however, took a critical tone, expressing her dissatisfaction with Clinton’s testimony:
Secretary of State-nominee John Kerry said “economic patriotism” should be a priority in making the United States economically strong in the world. “My plea is that we can summon across party lines, without partisan diversions, an economic patriotism which recognizes that American strength and prospects abroad, depend on American strength and results at home,” Kerry, a Massachusetts senator, said during his confirmation hearing Thursday. “It’s hard to tell the leadership of a number of countries that they have to deal with the IMF, balance their budget,
The New York Post is well-known for its classy, highbrow take on the news. And today’s front cover, exploring the nature of Hillary Clinton‘s contentious Benghazi testimony, only furthers that reputation. The Thursday, January 24, 2013 cover of the Post shows Clinton using her hands to express her feelings during the middle of a heated exchange with Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI). The wholly uncontroversial caption “Hillary explodes with rage at Benghazi hearing” sits beneath the main headline: “NO WONDER BILL’S AFRAID.”
Yesterday, Hillary Rodham Clinton provided unsworn testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee to answer questions about the 9/11 attack in Benghazi and the murders of four Americans. Conducted as fact-finding hearings, many Americans were hopeful that the officials they elected to represent them were finally going to get to the bottom of a deadly event that has been mired in deception since the minute it began to unfold. Instead, Americans were sorely shortchanged by a combination of inept questioning and lengthy monologues of professional praise, the latter which served as an effective tactic
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) laid out the conditions of her proposed assault weapons ban Thursday, saying it would prohibit 158 specifically named military-style firearms. “The purpose is to dry up the supply of these weapons over time,” Feinstein said. “Therefore, there is no sunset on this bill.” Feinstein said the bill prohibits the sale, transfer, manufacture and importation of assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices that can accept more than ten rounds, but said it would not affect hunting or sporting firearms. “Instead, the bill protects hunters and sportsmen by protecting 2,200 specifically-named weapons used for
Senator Dianne Feinstein announced an assault weapons ban today on Capitol Hill, saying, "The purpose is to dry up the supply of these weapons over time": “The purpose is to dry up the supply of these weapons over time,” Feinstein revealed, according to the Washington Free Beacon. “Therefore, there is no sunset on this bill.” The California senator said she´s identified over 150 gun models that she aims to ban, including "assault weapons," handguns, and shotguns.
The Lede followed Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s testimony Wednesday before the House Foreign Affairs Committee and Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks on the American Consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. (Snip) Soon after Mrs. Clinton used the phrase – “what difference, at this point, does it make” — in response to a question from the Republican Senator Ron Johnson about why the administration had inaccurately claimed a protest over an anti-Islamic video led up to
The Very Rev. Gary Hall, dean of the National Cathedral in Washington, said Thursday morning that "people of faith" should come together to fight for gun control against the "gun lobby." In his opening remarks at a press conference on gun control organized by California Democrat Dianne Feinstein, Hall spoke about the influence of the so-called gun lobby in Washington. "Now, everyone in this city seems to live in terror of the gun lobby," Hall said. "But I believe the gun lobby is no match for the cross lobby." Watch the video below:
There should have been something for everyone in President Barack Obama’s second inaugural address. For liberals, a full-throated call to arms. For conservatives, vindication. Obama settled once and for all the debate over his place on the political spectrum and his political designs. He’s an unabashed liberal determined to shift our politics and our country irrevocably to the left. In other words, Obama’s foes — if you put aside the birthers and sundry other lunatics — always had him pegged correctly. If you listened to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham,
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) would have fired Hillary Rodham Clinton for the debacle in Benghazi, Libya. “Had I been president at the time and I found that you did not read the cables from Benghazi .?.?. I would have relieved you of your post.” On the other hand, had the secretary of state spent her time reading staffing requests for consulates all over the world, someone else would have called for her firing. That person would have been right. There is something about Clinton that drives otherwise sane people nuts.
The Black Mental Health Alliance of Massachusetts has released a Public Service Announcement warning citizens about the state’s penalties for sporting saggy pants. The announcement alerts baggy-pants wearers that sporting pants “hip-hop style” with your “underwear exposed” could result in fines of up to $300 or even land you behind bars. “You still think it’s cool?” a cop asks. “It’s the law. Pull up your pants. Respect yourself.” Massachusetts law bans ”open and gross lewd and lascivious behavior” and warns that such behavior can be punished by up to three years in state prison or two years in county jail.
Politico reports on a new Obama-led, top-down effort to build a “grassroots” effort to turn red Texas blue. The effort will be built around some of the usual suspects, including shadow party honcho Matt Angle, and some new ones astroturfed by Obama’s personal political force, Organizing for Action. Republicans in the state should and will take the new effort seriously, for three reasons: It will be well-financed, and some of its top officers will have learned quite a bit from losing so many races, so consistently, for so long. No Democrat has won a statewide race here since 1990.
Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman signed off on TransCanada’s revised route through his state earlier this week, effectively clearing what the Obama administration has cited as a major hurdle to green-lighting the entire Keystone XL pipeline. Having already been through years of multiple State Department reviews, and with the southern portion of the project already under construction, it appears that bipartisan members Congress in fact can agree on at least one thing: The administration’s level of well-orchestrated stalling on this thing is starting to get downright ridiculous. A letter signed by 53 senators
Senate leaders have reached a tentative deal to reform the chamber’s filibuster rule, averting a partisan blowup over the issue but leaving liberal Democrats unsatisfied. The deal crafted by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) will not be final until the Democratic and Republican caucuses have a chance to review it at 1 pm Thursday. Liberals led by Sens. Tom Udall (D-N.M.) and Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) wanted Reid to implement the talking filibuster reform, which would force senators seeking to block legislation to actively
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will deliver a forceful denunciation of his party’s Washington-centric focus in a speech to the Republican National Committee on Thursday evening, arguing that the GOP is fighting the wrong fight as it seeks to rebuild from losses at the ballot box last November. “A debate about which party can better manage the federal government is a very small and short-sighted debate,” Jindal will tell the RNC members gathered in Charlotte, N.C. for the organization’s winter meeting, according to a copy of the speech provided to The Fix.
The renewed “discussion” about school shooters has raised many ideas — some well-intentioned, some not — about how to prevent and, to a lesser degree, to stop active shooters. Unfortunately, most are attempts to dance around the reality: the only effective way to immediately stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Preferably, multiple good guys. Mass rushes of unarmed teachers and children at armed killers, Tasers, and beanbag rounds are some of the more prominent suggestions being bandied about.(Snip Unfortunately, any such technology is absolutely unsuitable for responding to active shooters,
Chicago - An American was sentenced on Thursday to 35 years in prison for the key role he played in a 2008 terrorist attack on Mumbai that has been called India's 9/11. David Coleman Headley, 52, whose meticulous scouting missions facilitated the assault by 10 gunmen from a Pakistani-based militant group, which killed 160 people -- including children. "I don't have any faith in Mr. Headley when he says he's a changed person and believes in the American way of life," said U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber in imposing the sentence, which was in the range of what prosecutors had requested
SALEM, OR - If you´re a regular smoker, you may want to keep an eye on a new bill in the Oregon Legislature. Rep. Mitch Greenlick, from Portland, is sponsoring a bill that makes cigarettes a Schedule III controlled substance, meaning it would be illegal to possess or distribute cigarettes without a doctor´s prescription. Under the proposal, offenders would face maximum punishments of one year in prison, a $6,250 fine or both. Other drugs and substances that are considered Schedule III controlled substances are ketamine, lysergic acid and anabolic steroids.
Political power couple Bill and Hillary Clinton are working with an upmarket realtor to find a house in the Hamptons, MailOnline can reveal today. As Mrs Clinton, 65, prepares to leave office next week and possibly ready herself for a run at the Presidency in 2016, she and Bill, 66, are working with a posh realtor to find a new home to add to their portfolio of property in Washington D.C., and Chappaqua, New York. They are understood to be working with Saunders & Associates real estate to find the property after spending the past two summers
Two California men have sued Lance Armstrong and his book publishers for fraud and false advertising, claiming that the cyclist´s best-selling memoirs, billed as non-fiction, were revealed to be filled with lies after he confessed last week to systematic doping. The class-action complaint was filed in federal court in Sacramento, California on Tuesday, five days after Armstrong ended years of vehement denial and admitted in a televised interview with Oprah Winfrey that he had cheated his way to a record seven Tour de France titles through the use of banned, performance-enhancing drugs.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) on Thursday stepped back from his claim that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton became emotional at Wednesday’s Benghazi hearing in an effort to dodge his questions, saying he shouldn’t have speculated on her reaction. “I was responding to a question,” Johnson said on CNN’s “Starting Point” on Thursday. “I probably speculated, and I shouldn’t have.” Clinton showed flashes of anger as she delivered her long-awaited testimony on the terrorist attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, at hearings in front of the House and Senate Foreign Relations committees on Wednesday.
