Senator-to-Be Tim Scott: ‘Our
Second Amendment Right is a
Fundamental Freedom’

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

Rep. Tim Scott (R.), whom South Carolina Gov. Nikke Haley has said she will appoint to replace retiring Sen. Jim DeMint in the U.S. Senate, has been an opponent of Obamacare´s sterilization-contraception-abortifacient mandate, and a defender of traditional marriage, the right to life, and the Second Amendment. “The Constitution grants all law-abiding Americans the right to bear arms, regardless of what some would lead you to believe,”

You go, Tim! We need you!

We heard two men on the elevator today chortling over the fact that the NRA took down its Facebook website. It is as if the NRA killed those little kids in the ´minds´ of liberals but the murder of thousands of babies every year by the scalpel means nothing to them.
This is what we are dealing with.

Rep. Scott needs to get this right if he´s going to be among those idiots in the Senate. The Constitution does not "grant" the right to bear arms. That right existed long before the Constitution. The Bill of Rights affirms and enshrines pre-existing rights, among which is the right of free men to bear arms. I´m tired of everyone getting this wrong, including people who take an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.

The Constitution doesn´t even say that a person has to be law-abiding to own a weapon. The courts have been known to deny firearms rights for very minor infractions, or no infraction at all. For the liberal crowd, any excuse will do. Firearms should only be denied if a crime is committed using a firearm. Yeah, I know that´s after the barn door is open but the alternative is much worse. Self-protection is a God-given right. Any man who voluntarily gives up his weapon deserves what comes next.

You beat me to it #4 as I was recovering my password. (I do not think I have posted since the 2004 elections).

I never miss a chance to correct anyone who is under the delusion that the Constitution grants anything. I never had to write a Senator before on the matter....

Another one that really bugs me is when someone thinks the government has rights. The government has powers, not rights. It is the right to bear arms. Not the power to bear arms. It is *our* right.

Back to sleep for another 9 years

#2, so you agree that the real root of the problem is the ACLU? After all they forced society to unleash these sick people. It was the barriers they set up that delayed committing the maniac who was burning himself. The mother was in over her head fighting the system, but she paid for her mistakes AND the system with her life.

Most of the people commenting about new gun laws have NO idea what is required to follow the many thousands of laws already out there. This monster violated many, many laws after he murdered his mother. Make new restrictions that criminals and maniacs will ignore, if it makes you feel better about making it harder for people in dangerous situations to get a gun for self defense. It sure would be nice if someone stepped up and pointed out that if you tell someone you have a gun free zone, you also have the means to enforce that with more than a sign or a lock.

Rabbit troll alert. No he does not advocate gun rights for the mentally insane or 2 year old. How idiotic. But since you and your ilk are going to start the attacks, lets hear the dumb memes. Ready:

he´s against women´s health rights
he is not black enough
he wants to pollute the water
he is for big oil
he´s against healthcare

That the marxists democrat party has convinced 50% of the nation with these lies is a testament of how dumb the people have become.

I hope he is a fighter like Allen West and Rubio.

Tim Scott hit the ground running this week--an e-mail from his office yesterday requests $10 (or more) donations to feed the momentum.

See Scott´s Issues page and click on his full statement re the 2nd Amendment.

Notice that right under 2nd Amendment is "American Values." Ten bucks to Tim would be a nice little Christmas gift to yourself. (Fifty gets you a signed, special edition bumper sticker!)

When a bored president

Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden    Original Article

Like it or not, the world is a dangerous place, and getting more so. None of the portents look good. Vladimir Putin not so subtly says, in ever louder voice, that he’s in charge of events now, and the rest of the world should just get used to it. When Vlad roars, the rest of the world squeaks. He was in louder voice than ever Thursday, reminding a televised forum in Moscow that his parliament has authorized him to use force “if necessary” in eastern Ukraine, which he called, for the first time, “New Russia.” Whether portent or not, leaflets

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

Berkeley, Calif. — Delivering a rare speech for a Republican at this bastion of liberalism, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday was given multiple standing ovations by the left-wing audience after railing against government surveillance and warning the students: “Your right to privacy is under assault.” “I am here to tell you that if you own a cell phone, you’re under surveillance,” he told the crowd. Paul’s address at the Berkeley Forum on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley focused on the National Security Agency’s collection of telephone metadata and the debate over privacy. During his remarks, the potential 2016

A man was arrested after Las Vegas police said he pulled a gun on a group of entertainers from “Thunder from Down Under” at the Excalibur Tuesday night. The man, described as being between the ages of 25 and 30, went behind the stage and entered the “Thunder from Down Under” locker room about 9 p.m. According to police, he stole belongings from the group. Several performers from the show later confronted the suspect when they saw him with their property, police said. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and a struggle ensued. The gun was fired during the struggle, but police

Frustration with the search for missing flight MH370 boiled over into chaotic scenes as Chinese relatives were dragged away from journalists. They were attempting to speak to Chinese journalists outside the daily press conference in Kuala Lumpur. A BBC reporter was pushed away from the relatives, who were carrying banners criticising the handling of the case. Teams from 26 countries are trying to find flight MH370, which went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board. One of the relatives, a middle-aged woman, cried: "They give different messages every day! Where´s the flight now? Find our relatives! Find the aircraft!" The Malaysian government said

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - The FBI is helping Malaysian authorities investigate deleted data on a flight simulator belonging to the pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, while distraught relatives of the passengers unleashed their anger Wednesday, wailing in frustration at 12 days of uncertainty. The anguish of relatives of the 239 people on Flight 370 boiled over at a briefing near Kuala Lumpur´s airport. Two Chinese women who shouted at Malaysian authorities and unfurled a banner accusing officials of "hiding the truth" were removed from the room. In a heart-wrenching scene, one woman screamed in sorrow as she was dragged

The Associated Press has stepped up its attack on White House efforts to block coverage of events involving President Obama, warning that once access is cut, “we´ll never get it back.” In the latest media charge that the White House has reneged on promises to be “transparent,” two of AP´s White House staff told a convention in Denver this week that the president´s team often bars coverage of Obama events because they are “hypersensitive” about his Image. At the Newspaper Association of America´s mediaXchange convention in Denver, AP White House photographer Charles Dharapak said that instead of letting reporters and photographers in

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
