Have nothing to do with the [evil] things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light... [For] when all things are brought out into the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed...

-Ephesians 5:11-13

Liberal Hollywood filmmaker announces plans to “destroy” the NRA

Harvey Weinstein, the co-founder of MiraMax Films in the late 1970s and now co-owner of the Hollywood movie producer The Weinstein Company, told radio shock jock Howard Stern last Wednesday that he was going to produce a movie that would so damage the National Rifle Association (NRA) that

Fringe Anti-gun Group Challenges the National Rifle Association

Within hours of the press release issued by Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS), the fledgling anti-gun group that was hatched following the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords (and now run by her husband Mark Kelly), that the two were headed to Saratoga Springs Arms Fair in New York on Sunday, the media splashed headlines as if it were a major event. ABC News said

Deficit down, national debt up, more taxes needed say two “nonpartisan” groups

Two government reports issued in the last few days show that despite higher tax revenues, thanks to the tax increases signed into law by the president earlier this year, deficits are still sky-high and the national debt continues its inexorable climb into the stratosphere.

Although the deficit for the first eleven months of the 2013 fiscal year was down slightly compared to last year at this time, real progress towards a balanced budget remains elusive. Through August the federal government spent

First Recall in Colorado History Ousts Two Anti-Gun Senators

With the concessions of defeat by former state senate president Democrat John Morse and Democrat senator Angela Giron came cries of jubilation and disappointment in the first recall election in Colorado’s history. In the recall election first allowed by Colorado in 1912, more than $3 million was invested in the elections, most of it from

District Court Judge Rules New York City’s “stop and frisk” policy is unconstitutional

In District Court Judge Shira Scheindlin’s ruling in Floyd v. The City of New York on Monday, there was both good news and bad news. The good news is that Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s policy, with the enthusiastic cooperation of his police commissioner Ray Kelly, violates both the Fourth and the Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. The bad news is that,

Gun Confiscation via the Therapeutic State Moves Ahead in California

California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law on Wednesday legislation that provides $24 million in funding to hire another 36 “special agents” to scour neighborhoods starting in July to confiscate an estimated 40,000 firearms owned by citizens deemed to own them illegally due to reasons which include a diagnosis of mental illness.

Those approximately 20,000 citizens likely purchased them legally but

Arkansas Senator Pryor’s Troubles Continue to Mount

In a veiled threat directed at Arkansas’ senior Senator Mark Pryor, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, in his role as co-founder of the anti-gun group Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG), said last Thursday that any lawmakers who are “going with the NRA” are “going against the lives of our children.” When asked directly if that meant that his group was going to target Arkansas’ Democratic Senator Mark Pryor specifically, Bloomberg demurred:

“Control: Exposing the Truth about Guns” by Glenn Beck

His latest book arrived on Tuesday on my Kindle and I read it into the wee hours last night. I’m not finished with it but I thought I’d pass on some initial reactions to it in case you’re thinking of getting a copy.

Beck cranks these out on a regular basis using the skills, abilities and experience of others. I think that’s a good strategy, but

Michael Bloomberg is a very rich man. He’s also a tyrant.

This from Godfather Politics will likely outrage you. It outraged me. This guy is a petty tyrant. According to Wikipedia he is the 10th richest man in the United States. He owns 88 percent of Bloomberg LP. You no doubt watch Bloomberg Television. That’s the guy. He’s also the Mayor of New York City. In addition, he’s a

Another turncoat on the Second Amendment

Joe Scarborough has sold out. How do I know this? Because Chuck Baldwin and Michael Bloomberg have said so. In yesterday’s column Baldwin recounts his personal history with Scarborough:

This is the same Joe Scarborough who was elected to Congress in 1994 from the First Congressional District of Florida. He ran as a staunch pro-Second Amendment conservative. He was elected to Congress by staunch Pro-Second Amendment conservatives. Now, Scarborough is joining the chorus of the anti-gun left by adding his voice for more gun control.

At one time, Joe and I were fairly close. I hosted a prominent radio talk show in Joe’s district at the time and did everything I could do to help him win that US House seat. At one time, Joe, and several members of his family, verbalized to me that had it not been for my support, he would not have won his congressional seat. At the time, I was proud to do it.

And then Scarborough got the Godfather offer:

Mayor “How Do You Spell ‘Loony’?” Bloomberg

Michael Bloomberg - Caricature

Michael Bloomberg (Photo credit: DonkeyHotey)

This is nearly incomprehensible to me. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is, according to Wikipedia, the 10th richest man in the country. According to me, he’s close to being the maddest. He is banning food contributions to the homeless in his never-ending quest to be the city’s food-nanny:

Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s food police have struck again! Outlawed are food donations to homeless shelters because the city can’t assess their salt, fat and fiber content, reports CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer

Richter has been collecting food from places like the Ohav Zedek synagogue and bringing it to homeless shelters for more than 20 years, but recently his donation, including a “cholent” or carrot stew, was turned away because the Bloomberg administration wants to monitor the salt, fat and fiber eaten by the homeless.

I’m speechless at the man’s audacity and hubris. (Since I’m writing this, am I “wordless?”) Apparently, so is Bloomberg. When asked about how he could defend such a preposterous mandate, he mumbled

Hurricane Sandy Gives Obama an Excuse to Exercise Presidential Prowess

The latest from the Washington Times spells out just how large Sandy is:

Sandy was headed north from the Caribbean, where it killed more than five dozen  people, and was expected to hook west toward the mid-Atlantic coast and come  ashore late Monday or early Tuesday, most likely in New Jersey, colliding with a  storm moving in from the west and cold air streaming down from the Arctic. The  series of events has created a potentially devastating mix that could affect the  lives of 50 million people from the East Coast to the Great Lakes, forecasters said.

It was Rahm Emanuel who, early in the Obama administration, uttered these chilling words: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” And thus was unleashed the storm of totalitarianism that has flooded the halls of Congress and the main streets of America ever since.

Now that Hurricane Sandy has shut down the stock market and a large part of the economy along the East Coast, Obama is wasting no time:

The Ignored Aurora Shooting

On April 22 of this year a convicted felon, just out of jail, went to an Aurora, Colorado, church and shot and killed a member of the congregation before being killed himself by a congregant carrying a gun.

On July 20, following the horrific shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, President Obama offered his condolences to the victims of the more recent tragedy. “Our time here [on Earth] is limited and it is precious,” the president said. “And what matters at the end of the day is not the small things, it’s not the trivial things which so often consume us and our daily lives. It’s about how we choose to treat one another and how we love one another.”

Obama then led his supporters at a rally in Fort Myers, Florida, in a moment of silent prayer “for all the victims of less publicized acts of violence that plague our communities every single day.”

No doubt the president was unaware of the other, less-publicized lethal shooting that took place earlier in the year in Aurora, when there was only one victim, thanks to the quick thinking and action of a responsibly armed individual. Aurora police spokesman Frank Fania asked rhetorically: “Who knows what would’ve happened if the [church member, an off-duty police officer] had not been there? It certainly could have been a lot worse.”

How much worse? Could the killing spree have been as bad as the shooting at the movie theater, where a dozen victims lost their lives? Thankfully, we’ll never know.

Frank Luntz Filters Gun Owners

Frank Luntz

In Monday’s editorial, the New York Times reported the results of a Frank Luntz poll indicating that NRA members are much softer on key issues than the National Rifle Association itself.

Unfortunately, the editorial was rife with filters in the form of hot labels and emotionally-laden words and phrases that immediately impugned the validity of the results of the study.

NYC Mayor Bloomberg: “Too Many Guns”

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg opening ...

According to the Associated Press, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg “railed against gun violence” on December 11, one day after a street peddler died in a shootout with police in Times Square. Unfortunately, this type of crime is increasingly typical in high-crime areas of major U.S. cities, especially where gun control laws make it extremely difficult for law-abiding citizens to possess a gun. Yet Bloomberg, founder of the anti-gun group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, viewed the shootout as evidence that there are “too many guns on the streets.”
