California Legalizes Pot, Drug Dealers Move To New York

President Obama's Mentor Bill Ayers: My Bombings Weren't Like The Boston Bombings

Leftist radical and former Weather Underground member Bill Ayers, who was instrumental in the launch of President Obama’s political career, told a crowd recently that his bomb-setting days weren’t anything like what the Tsarnaev brothers did in Boston. Because, uh, reasons? Bill Ayers says people can’t equate the bombings that he and others in the

Hypocrites: Anti-Gun Democrats Seeking Pro-Gun Candidates For Swingstates

On the national level the Democrat push to toughen gun control laws was undone by red-state, pro-gun Democrats who joined with Republicans to kill the effort in the Senate. But even as the push for tougher gun control policies continue, Democrat party officials are seeking more pro-gun candidates to run in the coming election. Democratic

Under Obama, The Rich Have Gotten Richer

President Obama is nothing if not a class warrior, using the themes of the Occupy Wall Street movement to color his railing about the “1%” not “paying their fair share,” etc., etc. But what if it turned out the rich had actually gotten richer under President Obama’s governance? Remember too that from 2007 through 2010

Kermit Gosnell Isn't An Aberration Among Abortionists

As I wrote two weeks ago, one of the most horrifying aspects of the trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell isn’t the decapitated babies and grotesque conditions of his facility but rather those who were basically complicit in his crimes because they assisted, or at least didn’t act to stop him. Gosnell was able to

Video: President Obama Says North Dakota Pro-Life Legislation "Turns Back The Clock"

“In North Dakota they just passed a law outlawing your right to choose as early as six weeks even if a woman’s raped,” said President Obama today while addressing abortion industry giant Planned Parenthood.

Poll: Faith In Federal Government Hits An All-Time Low, Even Among Democrats

As is usually the case with these sort of polls, I’m a little skeptical, but according to Pew Americans – even, surprisingly, Democrats – have a low opinion of the federal government. And for Democrats, their faith in the feds has declined even under President Obama’s term in office: The percentage of Democrats expressing a

Hacked AP Twitter Account Claims White House Bombed, Stock Market Takes A Big Dip

Earlier today the official account for the Associated Press gave everyone on Twitter a moment of distress with a post claiming that the White House had been bombed and President Obama was injured. The account has been suspended, with the AP saying it was hacked: The @ap Twitter account has been suspended after it was

Democrat Critical Of Obamacare Not Seeking Re-Election

Breaking news this morning is that long-time Montana Democrat Senator Max Baucus won’t be running for re-election. BREAKING: Baucus not seeking re-election. Reported on Fox News #MTPol #mtsen — Aaron Flint (@aaronflint) April 23, 2013 That’s interesting because it was just last week that Baucus was warning of an Obamacare “train wreck.” A senior Democratic

Democrats Lose Big On Gun Control Push

Gun control has been on the back burner for Democrats since a Clinton-era crackdown played into Democrats losing control of Congress in the 1994 midterms. But when the Newtown shooting happened, the opportunists on the left thought they had an opening. Today that theory got put to a test, and it flopped. Big time. Despite
