Getting Wise to Gun Control Lies

How many times have we witnessed the scenario where some crazy or some terrorist kills a bunch of people in a public place with a gun and within hours, sometimes minutes, the Left is breaking out the calls for gun control? Never waste a crisis is the mantra for Progressives pushing their anti-gun agenda. Apparently, though, years of the same tactics are finally backfiring on the Left. A new ABC News/Washington Post poll has found the highest opposition to an “assault weapons” ban ever. According Read more […]

A Majority of Americans Not Comfortable with the Moral Direction of Their Country

Not just Republicans but half of minorities and even more women think the moral direction that the United States has traveled is wrong. I have already mentioned David French’s report at the National Review of how a majority of Americans think that what is happening to the country since the Supreme Court invented same sex “marriage” has moved us in the wrong moral direction. It is notable that even the Washington Post is admitting to this fact: “Liberals have won a series of victories Read more […]

Twenty-Five Year High in Support for the Second Amendment

More people are expressing support for the Second Amendment than those who oppose it. Back on April 10, I wrote about what I considered the “complete failure” of the propaganda push against guns that started with the Sandy Hook mass shooting. In that case, my evidence was gun ownership. Now that data can be complemented with a Pew survey on attitudes toward guns: For most of the 1990s and the subsequent decade, a substantial majority of Americans believed it was more important to control Read more […]

Consumers Say They Prefer “Junk Plans” to Obamacare: Thankfully All-Knowing Dems Took Choice Away from Them

Is there any way to describe in words how patronizing the defenders of the Affordable Care Act must be to not slink away in shame? I don’t think so. According to the Daily Caller: “ Americans who were allowed to keep their non-Obamacare compliant insurance are happier with their coverage than those with Obama administration-approved health plans, according to a Thursday survey from the Kaiser Family Foundation. Kaiser’s latest survey of individuals who signed up for coverage in the individual Read more […]

CNN Wants You to Stop Voting for Candidates You Agree With

The moralizing begins with the link leading to the CNN story: “Blame yourself for partisan Congress.” Of course, the idea is nonsense. You didn’t vote for a partisan Congress. You voted for someone you hoped would be principled enough to do right and resist wrong. The fact that Congress is polarized is because there are a lot of voters out there who elect the opposite kind of politicians for their districts. In other words, as a recent Pew poll confirmed, the reason Congress is polarized Read more […]

Polls Show a Different Story Than the Media Regarding the Popularity of the Democrats

So far, the Democrats are fully engaged in the pretense of making clothes for the emperor. They go to elaborate lengths to pretend he is not naked and exposed to the voters. The media cooperates with the ruse, pretending that he is handsomely clothed. Only one Democrat has been willing to break ranks and admit the truth. But the polls indicate that the public is not being persuaded by the media’s pretense. From Business Insider: The Republican Party is at its strongest point in two decades Read more […]

Americans Know Ukraine Is Not The Responsibility of The U.S. Government

Rebekah Maxwell blogged for Steave Deace’s radio show website: McCain on Ukraine: The prospect of a WWIII brewing in Europe isn’t good news for most people…but it was a great opportunity for John McCain to feign relevance on TV again. Rehashing a moment from his 2008 presidential race, McCain told TIME Magazine “we are all Ukrainians” now. In 2008, we were all Georgians, in 2013 we were all Syrians, now we’re all Ukrainians; it would seem McCain read George Washington’s words admonition Read more […]

Poll: Most Americans Are Not Hoping For Executive Unilateral Action; They Fear It

We all know that Obama has been threatening/promising that “if Congress doesn’t act” then he will. He’s got the magic pen and the magic phone and he is going to used them. But keep in mind that not only has Obama been making these statements, but he has made them in a certain way with a certain tone. When he talks about taking action, he says it like someone who is completely confident that Americans are tired of government inaction and would welcome his intervention. The assumed context Read more […]

Obama’s Approval Rating Keeps Sinking

Remember the last couple of years of the Bush Administration, when the media wouldn’t stop harping on polls that showed President Bush’s approval rating among voters was low and getting lower? You might not have known it from the near-total lack of coverage from the Left-wing press, but today President Obama’s approval rating among voters is worse than President Bush’s at the same point in his presidency. In fact, only one president was less popular: Nixon. According to a new Washington Read more […]
