On Wednesday’s “Special Report,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer acknowledged a link between gun ownership and gun violence, but said Americans would revolt if Congress implemented sweeping, unprecedented gun control legislation. “I think we are going to end up exactly where we started,” Krauthammer said. “We’re probably going to try an assault weapons ban. It will be a little bit tighter, but it didn’t work. It lasted for 10 years … If we had honest debate, the gun owners would admit, ‘Yes of course, guns contribute to homicide.’ … Japan had 11 gun homicides last year.
Comments: Yet, there are lawmakers that think this sort of act is the solution.
When you hear the word "insurrection," you have to think at least at the ballot box it´ll crush some Democrats.

First, Krauthammer was not talking about the ballot box when he used the word "insurrection."
Second, we are not subjects of a king. We are free men and women. We do NOT have to obey Obama´s "executive orders". Biden said some of the gun control is going to be enacted via executive orders. Obama is NOT our king. We are not his servants and subjects.
So Chuck and by extension (in his mind at least) the American people would be ok w/ constitutional gun control? One has to wonder why the adjective "constituional" was used as a modifier. Would not *any* form of confiscation result in what in god doctor suggests?
What the liberal Democrats really would like to do is legalize most current illicit drugs, and clean out all the convicted drug dealers from federal and state prisons. That would leave a lot of empty cells in those prisons.
Then the liberal Democrats would like to ban the production and sale of all modern semi-automatic firearms in the USA, require the registration of all such firearms now owned by Americans, subject those Americans to a $200.00 tax per firearm, and then subsequently confiscate all those firearms over a period of years. Any American who did not obey those gun registration, tax, and confiscation laws would be subject to arrest, prosecution, and imprisonment.
The result being many American gun owners taking the place of the released drug dealers in American prisons. That is only one way that the liberal Democrats intend to transform America.
You can see why there just might be an insurrection in many parts of the USA.
What the Libscum would have us believe is that the right to keep and bear arms exists because of the Constitution. The reality is that the Constitution exists because of this right. Infringe it and the Republic falls apart because it is no longer legally valid.
Not enough of us will believe it is real, we´ll hide our arms in the belief that the country will soon turn to reason. When enough of us are prosecuted and imprisoned to reach a critical mass then the fur flies. Just hope enough of us with claws are left.
Something is going to happen and Obama is intent on making it happen. Has anyone tried to buy a gun or ammo lately. The place I order from has a 3 mo wait on some of the ammo I usually order. The gov´t makes them send notices every couple of weeks to see if I want to cancel my order. No I don´t, in fact I may want to place another one. Don´t kid yourself folks, the libs are empowered by their victory last Nov and they are not going to stop until they take this country down.
Bunch of tough talkers in here... Reality is there is nothing we can do. Most people are weak and soft and will do nothing. Homeland security is already monitoring Facebook and sites like this for "troublemakers"- if any of us try to lead others during this ´insurrection´ those leaders will be evaporated by a drone strike and the revolt will be over before it even gets started.
Insurrection: 1. A rising against civil or political authority; the open and active opposition of a number of persons to the execution of law in a city or state. 2. A rising in mass to oppose an enemy. Noah Websters 1828 Dictionary
We the People are the Constituted authority, DC is the servant class, I guess you could say that make the pres the butler. Regardless we will not be in a state of insurrection, DC is and has been for over 150 years.
#30, if you dont play on the face book youtube, my face, your not going to be watched, if you are afriad of standing up to the man. then go stand by them. i will be on the outside of the BS and we will defeat the enemy.
In an announcement on his Twitter account, CNN political director Mark Preston announced former Yahoo News Washington bureau chief David Chalian would be named the supervising producer for the reincarnation of CNN’s “Crossfire.” But Chalian is perhaps best known for the controversial remarks he made back in August 2012 while still working at Yahoo News. While covering the Republican National Convention in Tampa, he disparaged GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and the Republican Party, which had decided to go ahead with the convention despite a hurricane making landfall in the southeastern U.S. “They’re not concerned at all,”
On Sunday’s broadcast of “Fox & Friends,” conservative columnist Ann Coulter explained how the trial of George Zimmerman — who was found “not guilty” Saturday night for the murder of Trayvon Martin — proved what she had written about in her most recent book, “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama.” “[I] tweeted out ‘hallelujah,’ because this was a media-led mob, and an innocent man almost went to prison for 30 years because of, well, Al Sharpton stirring up hatred and creating a narrative for which there was never any evidence and after this long trial there
Immediately upon the announcement of the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision on Tuesday in which the Section 4 of the 1965 Voting Rights Act was declared unconstitutional in the Shelby County v. Holder case, MSNBC’s Al Sharpton took to the airwaves to express his frustrations. Sharpton, the host of “PoliticsNation,” called on the president and others to speak out against the decision, but noted despite all the “voter suppression,” there was a record turnout. “I think the first thing we want to see is the president’s continued commitment to protecting voters around the country,” Sharpton said.
On Friday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama’s speech on Wednesday at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. The speech was sparsely attended compared to the speech Obama had made at the same venue back in 2008 during his first presidential election campaign. And as part of the “All-Star Panel” Friday “Lightning Round” segment, Krauthammer won the privilege of posing the question to his colleagues on how to define the speech. “Obama gave a speech in Germany this week,” Krauthammer said.
On his Friday radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin challenged support from for this current of immigration reform coming from prominent Republicans, particularly Jeb Bush and Karl Rove. Levin, author of “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America,” began his attack by arguing some members of the Republican Party make policy gestures without mentioning the U.S. Constitution. “It amazes me how few Republicans in elected office actually talk about the Constitution,” Levin said. “They have no more respect for it, no more concern about its boundaries and limits than the left. That’s why I say they’re neo-statist.”
On Tuesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer argued that Attorney General Eric Holder is now a liability for President Barack Obama on either of two grounds: lying under oath or incompetence. Krauthammer said Holder’s remarks about his knowledge of the much-publicized Justice Department probe of Fox News Channel correspondent James Rosen suggested Holder was either out of it or had blatantly lied to Congress in testimony about his knowledge of the probe. “The fact that he says that the gravity of the situation didn’t sink in until yesterday makes you wonder
On Michael Graham’s Massachusetts-based radio show on Thursday, National Review columnist Mark Steyn reacted to the treatment of Lois Lerner, the now-suspended head of the Internal Revenue Service’s division on tax-exempt organizations. Lerner, who had asserted her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination during an appearance before the House Oversight Committee in a hearing on Wednesday, was the object of ridicule by Steyn on the show. “Is this a republic or is it not?” Steyn said. “Because, if it is what a republic is then you guys wasted your whole time with your revolution — because they are basically saying
Long before the Internal Revenue Service revealed it had improperly targeted conservative 501(c)(4) groups, a group of Democratic senators led by New York Sen. Chuck Schumer urged the IRS to do just that. The IRS’s admission last Friday that it had singled out tea party and other groups for extra audits and delays has raised concerns that President Barack Obama’s administration quietly attempted to stymy opponents through intimidation. But many prominent Democrats — including Montana Sen. Max Baucus, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State and the New York Times editorial board — had been
On Hugh Hewitt’s Thursday night program, National Review columnist Mark Steyn explained why the Obama administration’s response to last September’s terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was so appalling.“They let him die, and then told lies over his coffin,” he told fill-in host Guy Benson. Steyn said that the late U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens was a true believer of President Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s view of the Arab Spring, that it was a positive movement and was trying to make the best of it. Clinton and senior State Department officials
On Aaron Klein’s weekend show on New York City’s WABC radio, Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe accused the Obama administration of buying up ammunition at an unprecedented level to bypass the Second Amendment so gun-owners “can’t even buy ammunition because government is purchasing so much.” “Let’s make sure that your audience out there is aware, Aaron, that our president, Obama, has been doing everything he could to stop the private ownership of guns in America,” Inhofe said. “You know that, everyone knows that. And yet he’s been voted down in a big way by a large majority.
On Thursday night’s edition of "The O’Reilly Factor" on the Fox News Channel, host Bill Bill O’Reilly and former Clinton campaign adviser James Carville debated whether liberals have been pushed further to left by activists and various media factions. O’Reilly pointed to Wednesday’s May Day protest in Seattle as one piece of evidence. He also pinned the blame on MSNBC, arguing that his employer’s cable news rival is “putting forth” a far left ideology. Carville disagreed and said the hosts on MSNBC network, including Rachel Maddow, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski do not hold views of the far left.
During a Senate hearing on immigration reform Tuesday, Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano had a testy back-and-forth over the performance of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. Sessions challenged Napolitano on whether she had met with leader of the ICE employees’ union in the wake of reports of low morale among ICE agents. Napolitano replied that she had not. “I think you should have met with them,” Sessions said. “I think there’s a real problem there. We have a very real problem. In December of 2012, a few months ago, a
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
No matter how much you may hope for it, it seems unlikely that you´ll be using the phrase "Senator Sarah Palin" with any great regularity in 2015. A new poll indicates that the former Alaska governor is about as popular in the state as Barack Obama — which is to say, not very popular at all. But even more surprising, while the former vice presidential candidate has made Alaska a central part of her public image, the state´s residents split on the question of whether Palin is all that Alaskan. Conducted by Public Policy Polling,
In her first speech since taking over the Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy came out swinging Tuesday and promised to ramp up the aggressive climate change agenda laid out by President Obama.(snip)“Can we stop talking about environmental regulations killing jobs? Please, at least for today,” she said during remarks at Harvard Law School. “We need to cut carbon pollution to grow jobs. We need to cut carbon pollution to strengthen the economy. Let’s talk about it positively. Let’s approach this as an opportunity of a lifetime. There are too many lifetimes at stake.”
A sex tape that Monica Lewinsky recorded for Bill Clinton at the height of their scandalous affair has leaked, during which the former White House intern is heard planning a secret sexual rendezvous with the president and declaring she is “too cute and adorable” to be ignored. On the audio tape obtained by The National Enquirer, Lewinsky at one point tries to seduce the commander in chief: “I could take my clothes off and start… well… I know you wouldn’t enjoy that? I hope to see you later and I hope you will follow my script and do what
Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey — whose most recent work includes the psychological thriller, “House of Cards,” about an unethical congressman — said in a recent interview that most Americans just aren’t grasping President Obama’s greatness. “President Obama will go down as having passed some of the most historic bills in the history of this country,” he said, in a recent talk with Hot Press magazine. “That despite constant knee-jerk opposition from the Republicans. A lot of people don’t realize how much he’s done in the most difficult circumstances.” Mr. Spacey is far less appreciative of Congress. “It’s maybe interesting
