In the midst of a ferocious battle with the president over gun control in America, the National Rifle Association continues to have more supporters than detractors, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. According to the poll, the NRA enjoys 41% positive approval rating, with a 34% negative rating. That compares with 41% positive and 29% negative in January 2011. The NRA has been in the spotlight after the December massacre of 20 children at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Conn. NRA executive Wayne LaPierre proposed putting armed guard in schools —
Classic Sun Tzu. Try to build the illusion that your forces are stronger than they really are while attempting to convince the enemy forces that they are weaker than they are so they will not fight. The lies from the White House are so flagrant as to be ridiculous.
But it only works if the enemy has a choice. This is a must-win battle for the NRA and for real Americans.
Show your support for the Constitution, make a statement by joining the NRA even if you have no intention of buying a firearm. Obama and lib Democrats have got to be stopped from dumping on the rights of citizens. Obama is not king.
This is just more of zippy´s out of touch inexperience with the real world. His Napoleonic mind thinks that if he says it, then it will be accepted--not always zip. He has taken on an issue that is scaring the hell out of some of his demdumb colleagues. Great! I hope it scares them so much that they realize how out of touch their man-boy leader really is. God Bless our Military Heroes!
Pass some new laws. Don´t stop to think or explain how these laws would have stopped the most recent tragedy that you are exploiting. Don´t think or explain that the items you want to ban ("assault" rifles), are used in only a relative handful of crimes each year. That´s not the point.
The point is to exploit the emotional shock and go on to the next teir of restrictions. Of course that won´t work, which will leave the door open for the next round of restrictions when the next big tragedy occurs.
Again... don´t believe any of the polls issued by the MSM. People vote with their feet and wallets. I signed up again with the NRA yesterday. I consider that a patriotic political donation.
Obama can issue all of the Executive Orders he wants, but who will pay any attention to them, and for that matter, who will enforce them. As far as the so called Justice Department goes, when Holder turns himself in for authorizing wholesale murder in Mexico, I might just start believing in our legal system once again.
Be afraid. Be VERY afraid. The uptick in the negative rating might indicate that the socialist in chiefs propaganda campaign, aided and abetted by the complicit media, is gaining traction. There are millions of stupid people in this country. Surely, not all 0bama´s votes came from the long-dead, the illegals, or those being bused from poll to poll by the SEIU and ACORN ballot-box stuffers.
Join the NRA $25 a year. They are highly educated reasonable folks who keep their focus on the Constitution and how important it is to future generations. It´s hard for Congress to ignore 5 million people. Join today.
I just renewed as a life member. In return, for a short time the NRA will let me sign up anyone I wish as a life member for only $300. That´s quite a deal. My grandchildren are now life members. YES, the NRA is our only Front Line assault against tyranny toward gun ownership.
Make no mistake, it was the NRA that stopped Obama from making the speech and the EO´s that he wanted to make during that pathetic press conference. He was going to use the word ´confiscate´ but had to back away from it.
What if he had used it? I should have been the trigger for articles of inpeachment. Would it have been? Would our pathetically weak Republican Party have arisin to the occasion? I don´t not trust that they would. Only three out of the 535 have said that they would. No checks and balances in any of the three branches of government. We are living in very dangerous times.
I have never belonged to the NRA, but I think the time has come. They saved us for a little while, but Obama will be back again for more of our freedoms next week. He won´t quit until he succeeds. He must be stopped, yet no one in Congress or the Judiciary will do it. Thank you NRA for doing what our Congress Critters should have done. The Constitution should be a bipartisian endeavor. We are in a period of history when it isn´t.
I have belonged to the NRA since 1962. I served on active duty in the Navy for 25 years--four combat tours in Vietnam. My Smith and Wesson Combat Masterpiece saved my life three times. I stil have that pistol within reach most of the time. Obama is a gutless, treasonous coward. He is a bully that hides behind the Secret Service. He should be impeached on grounds of high crimes against the American people and the Constitution. I tell you that I am so fed up that I am ready to pick up my rifle and march on Washington.
Last weekend, I renewed my NRA membership for two years after having let it lapse for a while. I don´t own a firearm. I don´t want to own a firearm. But it is every law-abiding citizen´s right to own a firearm.
I just wish the NRA would understand that every time they endorse a democrat, regardless of the personal views of the democrat regarding the second amendment, it is only empowering the NRA´s enemy. All too often, it appears that the occasional democrat support for the right of freedom loving Americans to have the means to defend themselves from criminals and tyranny, is politically motivated, politically expedient, and temporary.
Ayo Kimathi, a.k.a. “the Irritated Genie," a.k.a. the black supremacist employee of the Department of Homeland Security´s U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency is "no longer an ICE employee," according to a statement from ICE´s Deputy Press Secretary Gillian Christensen. "His last day with the agency was December 6," she added. Christensen, citing privacy policies, declined to comment on whether Kimathi left voluntarily or not. Kimathi was placed on administrative leave after the Southern Poverty Law Center spotted the ICE employee´s extracurricular advocacy in August. His personal website calls for the mass murder of white people. Kimathi´s site, "War is
WASHINGTON — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by Rep. Charles Rangel that had sought to overturn the 2010 House censure of the New York congressman for financial wrongdoing. U.S. District Court Judge John D. Bates ruled Wednesday that Rangel´s demands implicate "insurmountable separation-of-powers barriers" to the court´s authority. Bates added that Rangel´s quarrel is with the House, and it must stay there. Rangel´s suit claimed that staff and members of the House Ethics Committee that conducted the probe against him willfully suppressed evidence of misconduct in how the investigation was conducted. The House censured Rangel for various financial actions, including failure
The man accused of faking sign interpretation next to world leaders at Nelson Mandela´s memorial told a local newspaper that he was hallucinating and hearing voices. Thamsanqa Jantjie did not describe his qualifications for being a sign language interpreter, but told The Star he works for an interpreting company that paid him $85 for interpreting Tuesday´s event. He told Radio 702 Thursday he´s receiving treatment for schizophrenia and had an episode while on stage. Jantjie did not address allegations by sign language experts that he faked interpretation for the Mandela memorial attended by scores of world leaders and broadcast internationally. The Star quoted
WASHINGTON -- A budget agreement between key Republicans and Democrats. Even President Barack Obama was on board. All without anyone threatening to repeal this or shut down that. Gridlock, however briefly, took an early holiday in the bitterly polarized, Republican-run House. But across the Capitol, the high-minded Senate remains in the grip of some of the worst partisan warfare in its history after majority Democrats curbed the Republicans´ power. A round-the-clock talkathon is the result, putting no one in the mood for cooperation. Majority Harry Reid threatened to shorten the Senate´s cherished Christmas vacation if need be. A Republican called his bluff. "What´s
We are always asking questions, even when we´re not. A new study suggests that "uptalk," phrasing your statements with a rise in pitch at the end, isn´t just something young women do: it seems to be expanding to other demographics, including young men. In Southern California, anyway, young people tend to uptalk no matter their gender, ethnicity or socioeconomic status, suggests a small new study presented last week at the Acoustical Society of America’s annual meeting. “The use of uptalk is certainly more than just stereotypical ‘Valley Girl speak’ in Southern California. In fact, uptalk serves several purposes in the speech of
In the wake of the Obama selfie firestorm from Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, a commonsense guide to taking selfies. I’m old enough to remember when Selfies at a Funeral was a thing. It was a Tumblr, to be precise, so buzzworthy and relevant that by November 13, it was featured on Good Morning America. The site still exists, but on December 10, 2013, it took its own life: “Obama Has Taken A Funeral Selfie,” reads the final post, “So Our Work Here Is Done.” How did we get here? It wasn’t quite a selfie that POTUS snapped, and it wasn’t exactly a
TALLAHASSEE —A nearly 6-foot-tall "Festivus" pole made from empty beer cans will be put up in the Florida Capitol this week as a not-so-subtle protest to the recent placement of a Christmas nativity scene. The mock monument will be erected most likely on Wednesday in the same first-floor rotunda as a nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus Christ put up last week by the Florida Prayer Network. "I still chuckle, I literally can´t believe there will be a pile of Pabst Blue Ribbon cans in the state rotunda," said Chaz Stevens, a Deerfield Beach resident who applied to the
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
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
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
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.
