Public Doesn´t Blame Gun Laws For
Florida Shooting, But Still Wants
More Gun Control: IBD/TIPP Poll

Investor´s Business Daily, by John Merline

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 3/6/2018 7:32:49 AM

The vast majority of the public says something other than insufficient gun laws was the main cause of the Florida high school shooting, which claimed the lives of 17 people. But they nevertheless want more gun control laws, including a ban on "assault weapons." The poll found that just 22% say that insufficient gun laws are the main cause of mass shootings like the one that took place in Parkland, Fla. Instead, 73% blame either mental health issues, or cultural degradation, or lack of enforcement of existing gun laws. On a partisan basis, Republicans are most likely to blame mental

If the police didn´t scrub juvenile records Cruz would never got a gun. Cops went to the home of Cruz 39 times, he shouldn´t have be able to get a peashooter. I read this was Obama´s doings with erasing the juvenile records.

Was Obama´s ´Collaborative Agreement On School Discipline´ even asked in the poll?

Last night, a gun control advocate on the Carlson show (with M Steyn hosting) said he never heard of it.

The phrase ´Assault Weapon´ is getting as tiresome as the old "17 intelligence agencies" claim by the Russian hunters. These people are like a stuck record.

The AR-15 semi-automatic rifle is a specific product that is manufactured and marketed by Colt Corp. the AR-15 rifle functions just as most other modern semiautomatic firearms possessed by law abiding Americans today. The anti-gun liberal Democrats have decided that the AR-15 is a military style “assault rifle” that should be banned from being sold, and confiscated, all across America.

But since the AR-15 functions almost exactly the same as every other semi-automatic handgun, rifle, and shotgun sold and possessed in the USA, the next step for the anti-gun liberal Democrats would be to ban and confiscate all semi-automatic firearms in the USA, as they function almost exactly as the AR-15,and are just or more deadly than the AR-15. So if the liberal Democrats get their way, just about all modern firearms being sold and in use by law abiding Americans all over the country would be banned and confiscated.

I doubt that even 25% of the people who answered this question for the pollster has even the slightest idea what it takes currently to legally purchase a gun.

When you explain to people what laws are already in place, most are surprised, "I had no idea".

The Enemedia always pretends that there are no gun laws on on the books, and sells the idea that we need "common sense" gun laws.

We past the exit to Common Sense about 30 years ago.

The Left Rises As Democrats Decline
Investor´s Business Daily, by J.T. Young    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 6/18/2018 6:20:15     Post Reply
Liberals are reaching critical mass in the Democratic Party. While not strong enough to win all party contests, the left increasingly defines them. Their rise is clear over the past five presidential elections, and 2018 indicates they will be even stronger in the 2020s. The 2016 election was the latest manifestation of the left´s ascendancy in the Democratic Party. Consistently winning 40%-plus of the popular vote, Sanders rode this wave wire-to-wire. Only establishment-dominated superdelegates prevented 2016´s nomination from having to be decided on the convention floor. Liberals´ share of presidential voters has increased almost one-third since 2000. Exit polling in 2000 showed

The IG Report Shows That

Scandal: The long-awaited report from the Justice Department´s inspector general about the FBI´s handling of the Clinton email scandal seems to absolve the bureau of any political bias. What it really shows, however, is that the FBI — under pressure from President Obama — was just going through the motions the whole time. Most of the focus of the report in the news has been on its criticism of then FBI director James Comey. The IG says that some of his actions were "extraordinary and insubordinate" — a scathing indictment if there ever was one. It is another black mark on Comey's already badly tarnished reputation, and well

Politics of Envy: Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants her fellow Democrats to take on what she calls the "billionaire class." Does Warren know that many, if not most, of this tiny group of people are liberal Democrats? On a recent podcast hosted by Mehdi Hasan of The Intercept, Hasan asked Warren if she thought Democrats lacked the "guts" to go after billionaires. Warren response was "Yeah." She´s particularly upset at the handful of her fellow Democrats who voted for a bill that watered down the Dodd-Frank banking regulation behemoth. Warren went on to say: "Until we have all the Democrats who are willing to

Why We Need A Real
´Right To Try´ Bill In America

Congress recently passed, and President Trump signed, the "Right to Try" bill that gives dying patients limited access to drugs that have not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Our Founders would be astonished that we need such a bill. Nowhere does the U.S. Constitution give the federal government the authority to regulate the practice of medicine. And it is a very good thing that federal intervention and standards didn´t begin in 1789. Standards are always based on what the authorities think are "best practices." Until rather recently, most medical treatment was ineffective and often quite harmful:

Obama Created His ´Cartoon´ President
Investor´s Business Daily, by Douglas MacKinnon    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 6/14/2018 6:22:06     Post Reply
Life is nothing if not ironic. As related in a new book by one of his former aides, Barack Obama, in his alleged shocked reaction to the election of Donald Trump, said: "Maybe this is what people want. I´ve got the economy set up well for him. No facts. No consequences. They can just have a cartoon." First, it´s telling that now out of office, Barack Obama´s famous ego still has him buying into the narrative created by the liberal media, the Democratic Party and his aides that he was a "successful" and "brilliant" president.President Obama had, in reality, set up the economy to implode. He and his administration ignored

Dems Complain About Massive
ObamaCare Premium Hikes —
After Ignoring Them For Years

Health Reform: Since 2014, Democrats have greeted double-digit hikes in ObamaCare premiums with a yawn. Now it´s a crisis that must be fixed immediately. What´s changed? Huge increases in ObamaCare premiums are the norm. In its first year, ObamaCare forced costs in the individual insurance market up by double digits. Subsequent eye-popping jumps followed. The average premium climbed about 7% in 2015, 11% in 2016, 22% in 2017, and by more than 30% in 2018. The Health and Human Services Department calculated that, overall, premiums more than doubled between 2013 — the year before ObamaCare went into effect — and 2017. Note that

Trump´s High-Risk Game Of Nuclear
´Deal Or No Deal´ With North Korea´s Kim

North Korea Talks: No question, President Trump´s gambit to bring North Korea´s murderous dictator face-to-face at a summit negotiating table was a risky move. But after living through more than six decades of a state of war and with Pyongyang developing a nuclear weapon was worth the risk. The agreement signed on Tuesday at the Singapore summit is of course merely paper. Whether any deal survives its actual signing depends on the goodwill and trustworthiness of the participants. North Korea´s Kim Jong-un, who is himself the third generation of a line of brutal dictators who routinely cheated on deals with both

Leftist Agenda — Smart Move

G7: President Trump created a quite a stir among the other Western leaders by refusing to sign the "communique" that capped the G7 summit. But he was right to do so. This is once again being styled as the crude, unnuanced American president refusing to accommodate himself to the much wiser leaders of Europe. In fact, he wisely refrained from signing what was an empty, far-left political document, which is typical of the G7 "consensus" that American presidents have gone along with for decades. We´re indebted to Susan Jones of CNSNews.com who pored over the entire tedious document from the Charlevoix G7 Summit

Politics: Rather than rooting on the strong economy, Democrats have taken to ignoring it, belittling it or, like Bill Maher did over the weekend, rooting for a recession. The extent to which Trump critics will go is truly mind-boggling. The unemployment rate is at 49-year lows overall, and lower than ever for African-Americans. Household incomes are at record highs. The U.S. reclaimed its No. 1 rank in competitiveness. Economists are revising their growth forecasts upward. Optimism is at levels not seen in more than a decade. Clearly the economy is doing well. And what´s more, the public is increasingly crediting President Trump

´Gig Economy´ Everybody Predicted?

Work: For decades experts proclaimed that technology was reshaping the workplace, and a "gig economy" was taking over. But a funny thing happened in the years since. Nothing. Along with the advent of personal computers, broadband internet and smartphones came predictions that the traditional employer-worker relationship would soon be a thing of past. Workers would increasingly become freelancers, and companies virtual. Telecommuting would be routine. In 1999, the Department of Labor predicted that the "traditional work arrangement (is) giving way to something fundamentally different" as companies shift to "just in time" workers. Kiplinger predicted in 2000 that 100 million U.S. workers would be

Entitlements: Social Security is like the classic children´s tale, "The Boy Who Cried Wolf." So many warnings have been made, no one listens anymore. Well guess what? The wolf´s now at the door. Are you listening now? For the first time in 36 years, Social Security will take money out of its "trust fund" — an accounting fiction that would get you jailed for fraud in the private sector — to pay retirees. The truth is, Social Security is for all intents and purposes bankrupt. Since 2010, Social Security has been spending more than it took in, making up the difference by

Nearly two-thirds of the public oppose "sanctuary cities." Less than a third say they back the policy, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. The IBD/TIPP poll asked about support for a policy in which "some cities in the U.S. do not report illegal immigrants who commit crimes to federal immigration authorities." It found that 64% oppose the policy, with just 31% supporting it. More interesting, while just 16% strongly support sanctuary cities, 45% strongly oppose the policy. Every one of the 41 demographic groups broken out by the IBD/TIPP poll opposes this policy, except for Democrats (only 44% oppose) it, liberals (38% oppose) and

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power.

The president of Harvard´s teaching hospital got to thinking one day and decided there were too many portraits of white male doctors hung in a popular amphitheater. She bemoaned the horrible situation that people walking into the amphitheater didn´t feel like they "belonged." The problem cried out for a solution. So she moved several portraits of prominent white doctors in order to be more diverse and inclusive. Problem solved? Campus Reform: The hospital’s president, Dr. Betsy Nabel, told the Globe that moving the portraits is the right decision: “I have watched the faces of individuals as they have come into Bornstein.

While speaking to a group of activists in San Francisco, Hillary Clinton stressed that gun control is a “political necessity” and part of “taking back” the country. Clinton ran gun control as a candidate in the 2016 election and lost. President Trump ran as pro-gun and LMT Online reports that Clinton is now criticizing him for standing with gun rights organizations. She said Trump “did everything he could to ingratiate himself with the gun lobby, and is now doing everything he can to gut existing laws.” Despite losing the election, Clinton claimed that “the vast majority of Americans” support the gun control position, adding,

The floats at the Boise Pride Festival have changed drastically over nearly three decades. Dallas Chase knows this well. Chase, 71, attended the first festival in Boise, an informal gathering in 1989. She was part of the team that built the first "float." It consisted of a borrowed wagon from her neighbor decorated with painted cardboard. "It was done in secret in my garage," Chase said. In those days, Chase said festivalgoers wore masks to avoid having their identities revealed.

Phil Mickelson´s 48th birthday took a stunning turn at the US Open on Saturday when he stopped a putt from rolling off the 13th green. Clearly at the end of his tether after a shocking run of bogeys in his third round, the much-decorated American embarrassed himself when another putt rolled past the hole. Instead of waiting to see where it finished, he stopped the ball with his putter and knocked it back whence it came. (Photos/Video) It meant an automatic two-shot penalty and he ended up with a 10 for the hole. ´That´s absolutely amazing, that´s Phil basically giving
