  • California runs out of books to burn, burns guns instead

    Aug 15, 2014 @ 10:18 am - Isaac T

    My immediate reaction was to compare the melting down of 5000 firearms to a book burning, but that's not quite accurate.

    This is a Burnt Offering to the liberal gods.

  • The other side of Mizzou

    On the other side of Missouri from Ferguson, the KC Royals and the people hosted the Royals no. 1 fan from Korea. Oh and by coincidence (?), the Royals are in first place in their division for the first time in a long time.

  • Kodiak Arms President has his Ellis Wyatt moment

    Aug 12, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - Isaac T

    “I looked right across the table at Eric Holder — yeah, the attorney general of the United States — and told him, ‘If you try to mandate my smart-gun technology, I’ll burn it down.

    The Intelligun is designed to save lives, not restrict freedom.”

    It's heartening to see that there are still people in the business world who have the stones to say something like that to the face of our ruling gangster government.

  • New biosafety labs just because

    Aug 12, 2014 @ 6:39 pm - Alain

    IG report questioning Dept. of Energy's plan to open at Los Alamos, 2 new level 3 biosafety laboratories (bsl3, the highest safety level) and one new bsl2 at a cost of $10 million. Though the cost is low by fed. gov't standards, the IG report says that DOE does not have evidence that new bsl capacity is needed.

  • Haley Barbour meets with Julian Castro on amnesty

    Aug 12, 2014 @ 4:38 pm - dachiemama

    Former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, who, with his son, Henry, was behind all of the racist attacks on state Senator Chris McDaniel, is now collaborating with Julian Castro http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/09/04/Julian-Castro-A-Radical-Revealed to get amnesty for illegals passed.
    A popular, two-term governor, Barbour provided leadership to the state after Hurricane Katrina, but at the end of his second term, he left many people in Mississippi with a bad taste in their mouths after he pardoned a number of convicted felons, one of whom killed his wife on a public street shortly after being released.
    McDaniel lost to Barbour-backed Thad Cochran in the Republican primary after the Barbours enlisted the help of Democrats in a runoff for the Senate race on June 24 using robocalls targeted to black voters which painted McDaniel and the Tea Party in general as racists.
    McDaniel has challenged the results of the runoff, alleging that many of those Democrats had already voted in the Democrat Primary on June 3. McDaniel received 186,000 to 189,000 votes in the run-off and it remains to be seen how many of those voters will support Cochran in November. The Cochran camp and the state GOP continues to enrage Mississippi conservatives, making it harder and harder to believe they will go back to the Republican Party in November.
    The general feeling is that Cochran will win in November, but the state GOP may have underestimated the anger of Mississippi conservatives.
    People in Mississippi who support Barbour and Cochran seem to be grossly unaware of their support for amnesty. The only thing that seemed to appeal to them during the primary race is all the federal money Cochran – known as the King of Pork – can bring to the state. Even if they pay attention, they may not even care if Haley Barbour is colluding with radical Democrats. They just want that federal money.
    As a Mississippian, that disgusts me.

    Pressure is on to get all these Obama voters registered before November.

  • Sgt. Reckless

    NY Post Sunday book review: Sgt. Reckless was a mongolian mare purchased in Korea to take military equipment up the Korean hills during the war. Received two purple hearts, liked to drink beer, and was promoted to USMC Sergeant after the war.

    Story is a nice antidote to Pres. Feckless, present and unaccounted for, Sir.

  • Collateral Success of Carr vs Alexander Tennessee Race

    Aug 11, 2014 @ 1:07 am - Rob W

    While the election results were heartbreaking, there is much to be encouraged, and yes, even energized about. We did not win, but we are winning.

    Senator Lamar Alexander did not run away with this election, as most predicted he would. He was forced to buy the election, spending $7 million. He resorted to last minute robo-calls in which he falsely claimed his vote for Senate Bill 744 was a vote against amnesty. In spite of all of this, he could only capture 49.7% of the vote.

    The award for the tackiest campaign commercial goes to Mike Huckabee, who had nerve to lecture Tennesseans on being loyal to Alexander and threaten us by saying, “If you want to pick a fight with Lamar, well, you’ll have to fight me first.” Really, Governor? You ought to be ashamed of yourself. You owe every Tennessean an apology.

    The fact that Joe Carr captured 40.6% of the vote while being outspent 7 to 1 is something to be very proud of, and everyone involved is to be commended. Middle Tennessee was solidly behind Carr; and Lamar now bears the embarrassment of not winning his home county.

    We saw an inspiring convergence of the Beat Lamar PAC led by Michael Patrick Leahy, the Conservative Campaign Committee, and various Tea Party organizations. Before they even had a candidate, BeatLamar was canvassing the state, educating voters on Lamar’s voting record and showing up at Lamar’s events, outnumbering his supporters.

    Rather than being responsive to the BeatLamar students’ amnesty questions, Lamar ran away from them and ultimately limited his events to invitation-only. This became known as Lamar Alexander’s “RUN AWAY” bus tour.

    Lamar Alexander represents the dusk of the Howard Baker liberal GOP establishment in Tennessee, where conservatives need not apply. Just as Tennessee slowly evolved from Democrat to Republican domination, state politics are now migrating from establishment to conservative.

    My favorite paragraph in Lloyd Marcus’ article: “A black student told me he initially joined Michael [Patrick Leahy]’s Beat Lamar team for college credit. He has since discovered he is conservative.” If the Republican Party truly wants to be a big tent, this is how it’s done, and yes, conservatives need apply.

    Our prayers and gratitude go out to Representative Joe Carr and his family for stepping up to the challenge. Special appreciation to Tammy Bruce and Laura Ingraham for bringing this race to their international audiences.

    It’s going to take many more elections and many more heartbreaks. We did not win, but we are winning.
