Remember all the big, high-sounding media talk right after the massacre at Sandy Hook about how maybe now we will have a "national dialogue" about guns? Remember how many members of the media vowed to put aside their own little, selfish, partisan agendas and get serious about making this a safer and saner country for our children? Well, here we are 12 days out, and what´s that big media conversation on guns about? Whether or not "Meet the Press" host David Gregory broke a law by waving an empty ammunition clip on the air Sunday
Comments: Why stop at Gregory and Morgan? Continue on to most of the rest of the idiot media.
I grew up reading the Sun every single day,mostly for sports but it was fairly conservative in the news back then,Haven´t read the news section for at least 15 years.When I see this guys name,it time to take off.
The tides rolling back the other way on these people just as they become the planet´s boss.
The article went in the trash with it´s description of Katie Couric. David, you have got to be kidding! Why have we been importing these pompous brits to lecture us? (including fox) Are there no more Americans who can speak English?
Davey, Gregory did break the law if that magazine was real. As for McCarthy, he didn´t break the law, and he was right. And for your whining over the petition, did you say the same things when all the libs were doing it before?
As is usual with "conversations" with the left, they quickly devolve into blasting everything the right says before the echos stop.
Look at what the NRA chief said...it was roundly blasted by the left within 12 nanoseconds. That´s not a "conversation". Those dimwits seem to forget that what he said was pretty much what Bubba suggested a few years ago. Who knew? Certainly not the low/no information voters.
So on top of being dimwits they are having memory loss problems. You can´t have a conversation with someone with those conditions.
Whenever Leftists talk about "dialogue" or "a national conversation" on something, anything, we can be sure they are gearing up to try to ram their ideology down our throats.
"Conversation" and "dialogue," like "compromise" and "bipartisanship" are code words for Leftists. They mean agreeing and going along with whatever Leftists want, no questions asked.
In a way, it actually makes sense. Leftists think they know everything and are always right, that their motives are pure, and that no rational, ethical, decent person could possibly fail to see things their way.
So what is there, really, to talk about? Nothing. It is a mere formality before signing on the dotted line.
David Gregory performed the ultimate demonstration of why gun control laws don´t work. Because he had been denied permission by the authorities to possess the 30-round magazine, he broke the law to do so. Validating, "when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns."
It is possible to view the prospect of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with concern, even horror. It is also possible to admire the drive and single-mindedness the emirate has shown in pursuing its dream to host the tournament. This dream – to use a word used prominently in Qatar’s promotional campaign – is nothing less than the stunning, self-willed transformation of a micro-state (it’s smaller than Connecticut) that was under British rule until 1971, when its population was less than 100,000 (it’s close to 2 million now). Qataris were mocked by their neighbors as backward desert-dwellers, barely settled
The prosecutor overseeing the investigation of sexual assault allegations against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston said Wednesday that it is completed. State Attorney Willie Meggs has scheduled a news conference at 2 p.m. Thursday in his office to announce his findings. Meggs said investigators have learned as much as they can about the December 2012 incident. "We think we have exhausted all investigative tools," he said. Winston has led the Seminoles to the No. 1 ranking, and they will play for a conference title Saturday, with a shot at the national crown. The quarterback also is the leading candidate for the
For months, all eyes in the sky have pointed at the comet that´s zooming toward a blisteringly close encounter with the sun. The moment of truth comes Thursday — Thanksgiving Day. The sun-grazing Comet ISON, now thought to be less than a mile wide, will either fry and shatter, victim of the sun´s incredible power, or endure and quite possibly put on one fabulous celestial show. Talk about an astronomical cliffhanger. Even the smartest scientists are reluctant to lay odds. Should it survive, ISON, pronounced EYE´-sahn, would be visible with the naked eye through December, at least from the Northern
The Anthem Blue Cross representative who answered my call told me that there was a silver lining in the cancellation of my individual P.P.O. policy and the $5,400 annual increase that I would have to pay for the Affordable Care Act-compliant option: now if I have Stage 4 cancer or need a sex-change operation, I’d be covered regardless of pre-existing conditions. Never mind that the new provider network would eliminate coverage for my and my son’s long-term doctors and hospitals. The Anthem rep cheerily explained that despite the company’s — I paraphrase — draconian rates and limited network, my benefits,
At a time when over 4 million people have had their health insurance canceled, it’s good to know that some Americans can still access prompt medical treatment, even if they don’t want it. David Eckert was pulled over by police in Deming, N.M., for failing to come to a complete halt at a stop sign in the Walmart parking lot. He was asked to step out of the vehicle, and waited on the sidewalk. Officers decided that they didn’t like the tight clench of his buttocks, a subject on which New Mexico’s constabulary is apparently expert, and determined that it
Sen. Lindsey Graham says he will lead the charge in the Senate on federal legislation banning abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The Republican senator said on Fox News Sunday that he plans to introduce the bill this week. It would allow abortions after 20 weeks only to protect the life of the mother, or in cases of rape or incest. The Republican-controlled House passed its version of the bill in June. It´s not expected to go anywhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate. The U.S. Supreme Court´s 1973 decision legalized abortion until a fetus could viably survive outside of the womb,
Democrat Terry McAuliffe leads Republican Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II by 4 points in the Virginia governor’s race, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday — a considerably narrower margin than other recent public polling has shown. The businessman and former chairman of the Democratic National Committee leads Mr. Cuccinelli, the state’s attorney general, 45 percent to 41 percent, the poll showed, with 9 percent of likely voters opting for Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis. That lead is down from a 46 percent to 39 percent advantage for Mr. McAuliffe in a Quinnipiac poll last week, when Mr. Sarvis was at 10
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
