On her Saturday program on Fox News Channel, host Jeanine Pirro tore into the New York-based paper, The Journal News, which recently outed her and many other local residents as gun owners. Pirro said that the paper’s actions have made them look weak and scared. The fact that they have had to hire armed guards for their protection after publishing the map is striking hypocrisy. (Snip) “The firestorm began when The Journal News identified gun owners in a pedophile-like, interactive map,” Pirro said. “The battered woman, hiding from her abuser, whose address has been protected by the courts.
Comments: You tell them Judge Pirro! Surely someone of her caliber as a former judge and prosecutor could find a way to make these pigs pay for their gross negligence.
Liberals, like ´Red´ Bloomberg of NYC, will sacrifice the basic rights of Americans to attain their goal of turning America into a socialist country with ever higher taxes, oppressive laws, a dictatorial socialist elite with armed bodyguards, and a bleak future. Is this what the Founding Fathers planned?
A gun takes a frightened battered woman, a disabled person, an old person from VICTIM to FIGHTING CHANCE. These media pigs have put countless lives in danger with their stunt. They should be sued into the ground and if one gun owner on their list should have one single incident due to this list, these scum bags should be tossed in jail as accessories.
The mainstream media could care less how the information affects the gun owners and their family members. Their care-less attitudes and actions should be grounds for class action law suits. If they want to get reader arousal why not publish the names of all the Government workers who owe back taxes and then all their neighbors who fall into this category...that will sell newspapers and maybe get the guilty to pay up...legal gun owners ARE NOT lawbreakers...lawscoffers are breaking the law.
No way can they file and win a lawsuit against the newspaper, since all the paper did was publish legally-available public information. That´s why we need laws that keep gun ownership confidential except to law enforcement personnel and courts and others who need to know.
I can only begin to imagine what the families of the police officers and corrections officers whose names and home addresses have been published by this bathroom tissue of a “news”paper are feeling. Those families must be terrified. And what of the others? They, too, must at the very least be feeling grave uneasiness and discomfort.
Freedom of the press is now freedom to shout “Fire!” in a crowded theater that is not on fire?
Has that rag published the names and addresses of all their armed guards? If not, why not? I just wonder if they ever have to call the cops just how long the response time will be. After all, now that they´ve outed the cops the cops will have to find new hiding places for their guns. And then try to recall where they put them. All that will take time.
#9, be still my heart. Would that it be so. I don´t see how the paper can be sued, because of the Freedom of Information Act, unless it´s a go around that other laws were broken. I genuinely hope legal action can be taken.
That LP kool-aid is very pervasive - think of the implications in a statement that somehow the government NEEDS to know you are armed. They certainly can´t know that about criminals, so why the rest of us? Think about that. The founders would be shocked at what their descendants think is OK behavior from their government.
I loved the show except the part where she bragged that she once denied a permit to someone who´s reason for wanting a gun was "hunting and fishing". Is this something to be proud of? To deny someone their constitutional rights based on whim? I would be cautious considering her an ally.
I love Jeanine Pirro! When law-abiding citizens like this are outed, no one is safe.
Time to change that WW II quote: "First, they came for the legal gun-owners, then, they came for the Tea Party members, next the Conservatives, then they came for (____fill in the blank____)." It won´t be over until the weasels beholden to zippy are left and the country we once inhabited is ruled by a caliphate. It always begins as though "they" are keeping us safe.
I hope she is this indignant when our Gov bans handguns in two days. Andrew Cuomo is going to inflict a lot of pain and suffering on law abiding NY residents when he gives his state of the state address on Weds. Don´t think it will stop at NY. Cuomo and BO are in a contest to see who bans all guns first.
The decision to name a protege of Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) as head of the White House legislative affairs office is being taken as a sign that Senate Democrats will have growing power over the political agenda for 2014. The replacement of Miguel Rodriguez with Katie Beirne Fallon came as a shock to some former administration officials, who noted that Fallon was chosen over internal candidates with more experience. “So now we´re just turning the keys over the Congress,” one former senior administration official said about Beirne Fallon’s hiring. The move is all the more remarkable coming after the White House brought
The State Department is warning Americans not to travel to Libya. The stated reason: "extremist groups in Libya made specific threats against U.S. government officials and U.S. non-governmental organizations (NGOs) operating in Libya." The State Department warning reads, "The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the risks of traveling to Libya and strongly advises against all but essential travel to Tripoli and against all travel to areas outsideof Tripoli. Because of ongoing instability and violence, the Department’s ability to provide consular services to U.S. citizens within Tripoliis extremely limited, and the Department cannot provide consular services outside Tripoli except by
The parents of Trayvon Martin met with publishers this week to shop a book about their son, the unarmed black teenager who was shot and killed in Florida in 2012. According to two publishing executives who participated in meetings, Mr. Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, said they intended to write a book that gives the full picture of their son while tracing their own experience of shock and sorrow. The meetings were described as somber and moving by publishers who were present. Ms. Fulton and Mr. Martin were accompanied by Jan Miller, their Dallas-based literary agent. One publishing executive said Mr.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she spoke with Speaker John Boehner on Tuesday and asked when an overhaul to immigration laws could be considered in the House. “He told me, yes we have to wait until next year,” Pelosi told reporters on Wednesday morning. Democrats have been pushing House Republicans to hold a vote on a landmark immigration reform bill that was passed in June, or try to work on their own immigration legislation. But Republicans have been apprehensive, with the most conservative members opposed to anything that could provide a pathway to citizenship or legalization for undocumented immigrants.
Some high-profile bipartisanship in Washington on Thursday night, as former Republican presidential candidate John McCain praised Democratic Vice President Biden for his long-time support of foreign aid. McCain, a senator from Arizona, said Biden -- a former Senate colleague from Delaware -- "deserves our gratitude and respect for his many years of effective leadership in ensuring that all the resources America has to influence the course of world events are funded adequately and used effectively." The 2008 GOP presidential nominee also said he has never "doubted for a moment that the United States of America is fortunate to be served
New statistics indicate that the Obama administration intentionally refrained from sanctioning Iran following the June election of President Hassan Rouhani, lending credence to multiple reports that the White House began secretly courting Tehran from the first moments of Rouhani’s presidency. Prior to Rouhani’s June 14 election, the U.S. Treasury Department issued 10 sanction announcements targeting a total of 183 entities that were aiding and abetting Iran’s rogue oil trade and its nuclear weapons program, according to statistics compiled from publicly available releases on the Treasury’s website. New designations were issued each month from February to June 4, including six in the month
The White House said Friday that North Korea’s reported execution of the uncle of leader Kim Jong Un is “another example of the extreme brutality of the North Korean regime.” Presidential spokesman Jay Carney said the Obama administration hasn’t been able to confirm reports of the execution but has no reason to doubt them. Mr. Carney said the execution shows “the values of the regime, their low regard for human life and what is probably the worst human-rights record in the world.” North Korea’s state-run news service said Jang Song Thaek was guilty of “attempting to overthrow the state by
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it´s racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
Columnist Charles Krauthammer attacked new Obamacare rules unveiled by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a late Thursday conference call, saying the Obama administration is “approach[ing] banana republic lawlessness” by issuing the decrees. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’ Bret Baier on a panel with Juan Williams and Judge Andrew Napolitano, as the three reacted to Sebelius’ new directives for insurance companies. “This is exactly a reaction to a deep understanding among Democrats that [Obamacare] is a train wreck,” he said. “And it’s a panic reaction. As the judge said, this is utterly lawless. This now approaches banana republic lawlessness.
WASHINGTON – It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement of the budget deal.“Embrace the suck,” House minority leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi told fellow Democrats Thursday morning, a source told Politico.“We need to get this off the table so we can go forward,” she added. It’s a way of telling her colleagues the budget deal negotiated with Republicans is the best they can get. Democrats are fuming that the bipartisan budget deal doesn’t extend unemployment benefits for more than a million Americans. One of Pelosi’s top lieutenants, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, said Thursday it
