Representative Put on No-Fly List; Told to Use Middle Name

Liberals want to use the no-fly list, or some other terrorist watch list, to suspend an American’s Second-Amendment right to bear arms, it might be good to learn about the story of Congressman Tom McClintock of Elk Grove, California. The Conservative Republican was put on the no-fly list. The Sacramento Bee reports: Among the proposed restrictions advocated by President Barack Obama and rebuffed by Congress is to ban those on the federal government’s terrorist no-fly list from being able Read more […]

Trump Still Popular Despite (or because of) Immigration Remarks

While it looks like Ted Cruz may be pulling ahead in Iowa, it is important to realize that Donald Trump’s suggestion that we pause Muslim immigration until we figure out a process for filtering out terrorist has not cost him in the polls. Reuters reports, “Exclusive: Trump lead among Republicans undiminished in first poll after Muslim comments.” Donald Trump held onto his commanding lead in the Republican race for the White House after his call for a ban on Muslims entering the United States Read more […]

Guest Post: Protect the Citizens or the Terrorists?

The week before last, a terrorist couple slaughtered fourteen people and injured twenty-one others in San Bernardino, California. Shooter Tashfeen Malik, a Pakistani citizen and the wife of the other shooter, Syed Farook, entered the United States with a K-1 visa which had an inaccurate address. Evidence shows that they both committed to “jihad” and “martyrdom” at least two years ago. Somehow our government didn’t discover this, and Malik was admitted into the U.S. and later given a green Read more […]

Obama Admits San Bernardino Shooting MIGHT Be Terrorism, but Is Sure of Gun Control

The San Bernardino shooting shows the President’s blindness. ABC News reported on the President’s statement on the shooting: “At this stage, we do not yet know why this terrible event occurred,” Obama said of the Wednesday rampage that left 14 people dead. “We do know that the two individuals who were killed were equipped with weapons and appeared to have access to additional weaponry in their homes. But we don’t know why they did it.” Obama added, “It is possible that this was terrorist-related Read more […]

Treating Climate Summit Protesters as Terrorists in Paris

This is classic statism. Paris suffered a horrific terrorist attack. Therefore, the state was given new powers in order to deal more effectively with terrorists. But now the law is being used against anyone protesting or disrupting the work of the climate summit in imposing expensive energy on everyone. The New York Times reports, “France Uses Sweeping Powers to Curb Climate Protests, but Clashes Erupt.” The French government is using the sweeping emergency powers it gained after the Paris terrorist Read more […]

Rand Paul: We Are Risking Nuclear War with Russia!

As Tad Cronn has written, Barack Obama has repeatedly antagonized Russia. Where will it end? One candidate is concerned for the ultimate failure in foreign policy. Joel Gehrke writes in the National Review: “Rand Paul: Downed Russian Jet Could Lead to Nuclear War.” Paul’s relatively dovish foreign-policy views have left him in a lonely political position of late, as international crises and terrorist attacks created an opening for hawkish rivals such as Senators Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Ted Read more […]

Obama Piles on as Tensions Build With Russia

Leave it to President Obama to say the wrong thing at the wrong moment. Following Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian plane on its way to attack ISIS in Syria, Obama said Tuesday at a press conference with French President Hollande that “Turkey like every country has a right to defend its territory and air space.” He then added, “I think it is very important for us to right now make sure that both the Russians and the Turks are talking to each other and find out exactly what happened, and take Read more […]

Protecting Students through the Second Amendment

WKRC in Cincinnati reports: “School staff training for an active shooter.” Would you want teachers in your schools carrying guns? It’s one of the most controversial issues in the entire country. In Ohio, around 40 school districts now allow teachers with concealed carry licenses to carry their weapons in class. In upstate Ohio there is top level, extraordinary teacher training. The teachers and administrators train side by side with local law enforcement and paramedics at John Benner’s Tactical Read more […]

Cruz vs. White House Terror Apologists

Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz called out President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry over their public comments this week in the wake of the Paris massacre. After Obama publicly criticized Republicans (though not the dozens of Democrats who have joined them) for seeking to temporarily block importation of Syrian refugees Cruz said, “Instead of engaging in political warfare, how about the president do his job as commander-in-chief? “He seems more upset that Republicans are calling Read more […]

TSA Protects Flyers from Buzz Lightyear

While the TSA is failing again to protect us from terrorists, it has found another threat that is within its pay grade. According to CBS Philly, It’s not the kind of “toy story” a Pennsylvania family had hoped for. They say TSA officials sent their five-year-old son’s Buzz Lightyear toy to ‘infinity and beyond.’ The Zilka family was returning home from a trip to Disney World, where the boy’s uncle bought him a Buzz Lightyear “flip grip.” However, security officials at Read more […]

TSA Is Failing Yet Again

You may remember that the Transportation Security Administration massively failed a basic test this last summer. Have they improved since then? According to Jeff Jacoby in the Boston Globe, That was in June. In July, a new TSA chief pledged to lawmakers that within 60 days “we will have trained the failure out of the front line” of airport screening personnel. So how do things stand four months later? The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a hearing on that question last Read more […]
