Feinstein: All Gun Owners Should
Be Registered, Fingerprinted

Breitbart´s Big Government, by AWR Hawkins

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/27/2012 10:51:25 PM

Even as news that Sen. Dianne Feinstein´s (D-CA) "Assault Weapon" ban is really a ban on some of the most popular civilian-owned handguns in the U.S., details of her promised legislation also show that it will require gun owners to register their guns with the government. Feinstein´s legislation does this by banning the import, possession, and transfer of hundreds of different weapons, but making special allowances for gun owners who already own the weapons on the ban list. On first read, the owner of an AR-15,

1. Start with the First Amendment. Fingerprint all clergy and "journalists" first.
2. It takes a very special [willful, etc.] kind of stupidity to pretend "...shall not be infringed" means anything other than what it means.

I wonder how many unregistered guns there are in the nation. So many are handed down father to son and not registered, there must be millions. Then the question how many of the owners of these under the radar guns would willing to and get printed and raise a big flag saying come and get it.

The real plan is this: put in a new gun ban, register all guns; then, when there is another Newtown CT school incident, tell Americans that confiscation is the only answer.
Listen for the knock at your door.
End of Second Amendment.

Dianne, the States already regulate guns.

Under the Reserved Powers clause, Dianne should stop attempting to violate the Constitution, and tell her fellow Senators to get off of their lazy asses and pass a budget, something they have not bothered to do for years.

Just what an arguably near-bankrupt country [due to Democrat mismanagement]needs is another giant federal bureaucracy doing nothing useful at vast expense.

Canada just ended their looney-tune long gun registry after $2Billion was wasted on it. Canada has 10% of the population of America. Can America finance yet another Democrat boondoggle? Everything they touch turns to junk. Look at California, or Stab City or... etc. etc.

nancy it actually takes 2/3 rds of the states to change the constitution . May we remind the progressives do not control even half of them so pass your bill honey and wait forever for it to succeed .
The same should apply to the Obamacare fiasco --30 GOP states pass their independent bills to nullify it and refuse to accept the FED´s unconstitutional blunder.

Do guns perform abortions? Perhaps we just have to expand the definition; late term, you understand. Someone wrote recently, "abort liberals to the 300th trimester".
Diane is an elitist, and therefore does not have the same limitations as an ordinary citizen. She has "rights", and I suppose, she is anxious to find out their limits.
If these politicians want to live in a bubble, guarded by gunmen, they might avoid the backlash for a time, but the second amendment isn´t going away, but the politician may. All tyrants and dictators want to disarm their subjects, and these gun grabbers are typical, and make themselves vulnerable to retaliation. Typical white woman with too high of an opinion of her self,I suppose.
Also found this: "Those who would turn their guns into plows, will plow for those who don´t."

I assume that dried up old prune has already registered and been fingerprinted?

I´ve always wondered why her life, and the rest of those hypocrites, is worth so much more than mine. They don´t have any trouble getting California carry permits.

Of course, California does have its standards. Because of the public safety issue, Nobody in California can get a CCW unless(s)he is 1) a politician, 2) a rock star, or 3) a left-wing movie actor. The rest of us don´t have a need.

BTW, Dianne, if I had a gun, you wouldn´t get it, no matter what laws you pass, nor would I register it. Of course that´s all academic, since I would never own anything so dangerous...

The latest hoodlum fad is setting people on fire.We´re in a very sick and demented society and that´s why guns are in such high demand.

Feinstein just wants to be the champion of gun grabbing to prove she´s the queen of the far left. Her bill probably won´t even pass the senate,let alone the House.Maybe it´s all a stunt so Obama can step in with an exe. order but even those can´t repeal a constitutional right.

The left thinks they own the country right now and whatever they say,goes.In their opinion,there´s nothing to oppose them other than pockets of right wing renegades lurking in the bushes.

It´s just like the death penalty being eradicated by the left under the guise of it being inhumane.Never mind the victim of the murderers were treated inhumanely.If you fire a rocket at Israel,they should only be allowed to shoot rockets back.

The left wouldn´t even be in power except for importing foreign voters,yet they still believe the majority of people agrees with them.

Most of the liberal Democrats would legalize drugs and ban all firearms in a minute. That would transform America in another way, all the drug dealers could be let out of prison to make room, and Americans who have never been criminals before would now be classified as criminals subject to long prison terms as a result of many aspects of the liberal Democrats war on firearms.

How many of the current criminal population and violent nut cases who are causing all this shooting havoc around the country are going to show up to be fingerprinted and photographed anyway?

Article cites that gun control advocates label their opposition as "paranoid" and "conspiratorial. " Slippery slope is another favorite gun grabber insult. I hate "slippery slope" because it is code for "paranoid. " it´s used to dismiss 2nd Amendment advocates who oppose "coexpress legitimate concerns about the incremental confiscation of individual rights.

Now here comes feinstein and cuomo with expressions of gun grabbers inner thoughts we always knew they had. Mandatory registration? Confiscation? When that doesn´t work, what´s next, drone X-rays of all residences to locate firearms followed by a door to door roundup? Oh, sorry my paranoid side just kicked in.

Also Read the Atlantic Mag article onthe attack on the 5th Amendment.Another one going down.
There is a reason why the Freedoms were first Amendment in the Bill of Rights and the Right to bear arms and, yes, defend the freedoms was the 2nd Amendment.By design.

Well...

1) The proposed legislation is in direct contradiction to the Heller decision of 2008 establishing the 2nd Ammendment as an individual Right (which we all knew anyway).

2) The proposed legislation is being framed as an "Assault Weapons Ban"... but reading it reveals it would also ban many handguns. This is why nobody trusts politicians- particularly Lefties.

3) The last ´Assault Weapons Ban" didn´t work.

We have Oath-Keepers. I suggest a new organization: "Gun-Grab Killers." Our right to own lethal weapons to defend against evil in our own communities is from God, not man. That right cannot legitimately be taken away by mere men.

Gun-Grab Killers would vow to kill the first enforcement "officer" at their door who would dare to enforce an (eternally) unlawful order to confiscate lethal weapons peacefully owned.

If enough people joined such a group (anonymously, perhaps), and if clear prior notice was delivered to every potential enforcer of unlawful orders, we might just avoid a repeat of Nazi Germany.

He could name Karl Marx, Saul Alinsky or Vladimir Putin and the libs and the media would fall in love with him or her. The Republicans don´t have the clankers to stop anyone obama chooses. Fact is, he´ll probably pick a minority or female to use that as a weapon against the opposition.

These mass murder shootings of late are kind of suspicious. The democrats moving with what seems to be predecided agenda IMMEDIATELY after reminds of when a married couple divorces, then one of the former spouses is already in the arms of another just a day after the divorce papers are signed. Maybe I´m wearing a tin hat but how about how many commit suicide after the shooting, leaving no spoken trail? It´s the perfect crime for democrat rats.

Someone with who is a good thinker, former leader, former military, expert in revolutionary war, needs to submit ideas of what we can do to stop these off the chain actions of an out of control gov. We need to think of an ultimatum, sign some petitions and give the Feds a compliance date. Enough is enough. Tell them to back off or else. Plus we won´t be submitting any bills to congress to get justice. The slacker DC politicians have shown all too well that is ineffective.

Gov diatribe/rhetoric nearing end of 2012 shows why they have stockpiled some much ammunition. We are under siege and they want a complete takeover. They probably plan to surrender us to China at some point as it was noted China recently poked their nose into the gun debate demanding US citizens be disarmed.

This will mean Congress has gone too far. Even King George realized ownership of private weapons was a right in America. These tyrants need to be taught a lesson, first it was stuffing Obama-don´t-care down our throats, and now it´s making every law-abiding citizen a law-breaker through a "retro-active" law. These people are evil. If the States don´t rise up and re-establish control over the Federal, then the citizens must. It´s a right spelled out in our very Declaration of Independence.

What they want is a totalitarian regime that will seize all weapons or make all gun owners criminals.

Australia, England have tried the gun bans only to have crime skyrocket. Canada tried the gun registration scheme that was a failure and cost the tax payers billions of dollars.

Tattoo the gun owners registration number on the inside of their arm and have them be required to wear a patch on the outside of their clothing for easy identification. Those not complying and found with a firearm are subject to summary execution.

Hate to tell you, #33....but the NFA has passed repeated challenges in court, and I doubt Scalia and the others would throw it out and effectively remove Federal controls from machineguns and silencers.

So...this has to be stopped from passing or we´ll be spending the next forty years chipping away at it.

Like Obama et al., Feinstein is not the disease but a symptom of the disease. The disease is in the electorate. Its plague reservoirs are in the universities. Unless Americans reclaim their schools and universities from those who are, knowingly or not, enemies of America, the sickness may indeed be unto death.

Just as they promised they would, the Sixties radicals seized the universities and the institutions of culture. "We will get you through your children!" howled Alan Ginsburg. And they did.

All of these liberal and Leftist zombies are being manufactured right now in our schools and universities, and conservatives seem powerless to do anything about it. The battle for America has been lost at the ballot box. It can still be won in the schools and universities, but the hour is growing late. Another generation of indoctrinated voters and the republic will be history.

Weapons manufacturing was about the only business that was going great during King O´s first term . Is it any wonder that purchase´s have gone even higher since he got re-elected ? . Look , the socialist´s are like an Ant colony , they all work for the greater good . Feiny or whomever , it could have been any one of them . They all know weapons sales have little to do with a school and a loon . They all know as well what their King has plans for and are very worried we know too . We´re arming ourselves ahead of schedule .

I have a concealed carry permit here in FLA. I was fingerprinted and passed a background check.

I also have a FLA driver´s license.

If I mess up in either area, you´ll know where to find me.

Of course there is always the old argument that "it´s the militia". They are the only ones that are allowed to own guns. Now, how many states have a "militia". Now, define militia.

Definition of MILITIA


1

a : a part of the organized armed forces of a country liable to call only in emergency

b : a body of citizens organized for military service

2

: the whole body of able-bodied male citizens declared by law as being subject to call to military service

Looks to me like all able bodied male citizens. Or, like Dims and lawyers customarily do, do we just change the definition to suit our own needs?

My cold, dead hands!

Does she seriously think that anyone who has an unregistered gun would trot over to a government agency and admit ownership or give one up. Especially to a government that can strip search and run a peep show at airports, listen to your phone and computer private conversations without warrants, and steal the money you earn to fund people who won´t provide for themselves. In a contest of trust, I will trust normal working people over bureaucrats every time.

The one gun that I own was registered years ago and I bought it for self defense. The Government taught me how to use weapons, although I knew how before I was 10 years old. Someone stop these political idiots before they start a civil war they can´t win.

Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story—who it bears noting, was appointed to the Supreme Court by the guy who wrote the Constitution. Story wrote, “The right of citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of the republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of the rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”

“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” – Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446.

Ms. Feinstein is on course to be the ignition point to the second Civil War.

Think long and hard about this, Ms. Feinstein.

#34: "We are looking at a Civil War and their side has the bigger guns."

A Russian defector during the cold war was asked if Russia had any plans to invade the US.

He said absolutely not. They´re not afraid of the military, it´s the citizens with millions of guns they fear.

#60: It´s the "militia" that our goons in DC fear as well as the well armed citizens. Among the military both active, reserve and retired are thousands, maybe millions who would would take of command those "bigger guns" of which Ann of #34 refers. And, they would not be friendly to DC.

It will take three more generations to "indoctrinate" enough kids to implement this even in a small way, but it will happen. Then it will be the criminals that the goons in DC will fear when they take over. Those criminals will be what used to be "law abiding citizens."

God Bless America. And I thank him every day that he´s on our side!

Sorry for the second post, but it had to be said:
Even if you fall for the militia argument (which I emphatically do not), a case can be made that We, the people who would make up the militia should have exactly the same weapons and firepower that the US Armed Services have, since the purpose of the Second Amendment is to protect We, the people against a tyrannical Federal government.

Give us some legislation that would actually prevent the crimes that have been committed, and maybe then we will listen.

The huge cost of setting up and running such a massive national firearms and firearms owner registration system would clearly adversely outweigh any benefit derived from it. The Canadians found that out, and did away with the registration system that they had in Canada.

The only reason that the Democrats would want to set up such gun, and gun owner, data bases is if they intend to confiscate all firearms sometime in the future. Probably after another isolated horrific shooting by a nut case that creates another crisis for them to implement another incremental move towards banning all firearms.

Clearly the number of violent criminals and dangerous nut cases who have firearms and who would comply with the requirements of such a onerous registration system would be minuscule to non-existent. So this overreaching gun control proposal will only be a bother to law abiding gun owners, and only goes to further show that when guns are banned that only criminals will have them.

Congress should deep six this seriously over-reaching gun control proposal in favor of supporting ways to keep firearms out of the hands of the dangerous mentally ill as that´s where the problem is.

Several posters have already mentioned this, but if the fools in the DC bubble seriously try and push this nonsense, they are in fact on the course to a civil war (the first was a war between the states, nothing civil about it). It´s difficult for a rational person to try and wrap your head (so to speak) around the level of ignorance of the citizenry feinstein and her cohorts display.

An earlier poster mentioned that those with a concealed carry permit had already been finger-printed. It´s a little different where I´m from; I filled out the form at the Sherrif´s office, waited about 15 mins, then paid $15 and received my permit. My wife has been able to renew it for me when I have been out of town (cost an extra $1 though).

#60 -- I must have missed where it says, "the right of the militia to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." Every copy and transcription I´ve seen of the Constitution defends that right for the people. Not the state, not the militia, not the literati... but the people. i.e., individual citizens.

Years ago, when the site was still young, I made acquaintance with an L.dotter (who I had reason to believe had credibility) who told me about government experiments that had been taking place in California--and at the time, in San Diego. These experiments had to do with mind control. I know it sounds crazy, but there were examples that tied into a lot of the things that happened here that had never happened in other states before. Anyway, my point is...what if it´s possible that government has found a way to get to some vulnerable people and make them do these crazy things (like Sandy Hook shooting)? They could then blame the availability of guns and well...we know the rest... Is it completely farfetched? I don´t think so. We already know that these people in government don´t care about other people´s lives. They only care about power and wealth. Control is their ultimate goal.

#13, if I may... from memory...
assuming you´re talking about amending the U.S. constitution...

I think it takes a two-thirds majority vote in each chamber of Congress (House & Senate),

then, following that, any proposed amendment would require ratification by
three fourths of the states in order to be adopted as part of the constitution.

Just for the record.
Correct me if it´s wrong.

#92 my everyday 24/7 go to weapon is a smith and weapon .357. I keep it loaded other hollow point armor piercing bullets. It makes me feel protected and feminine at the same time.
Any semiautomatic assault rifle with a large capacity clip is wonderful for home protection and general piece of mind.
As back up against ammo shortages, a high velocity bow with armor piercing arrows is a Godsend.
Of course rocket launchers are the best protection, but you need a good dealer to find one.
As a last result, and to save money, you can always hacksaw the last 12-14 inches of your 12 gauge shotgun in a pinch. This creates a fabulous and deadly weapon that is so easy transport..
God bless your decision to buy a weapon. And God help any law that takes away or restricts my rights to firearms.

Rarely purchase firearms. Don´t hunt. No patience. Don´t feel threatened in my daily life. But the next time I purchase a firearm it will be a private transaction or a gun show where I don´t have to fill out a form. When you purchase one from a gun store and you fill that form out you are giving your name and address to the government. In addition to repealing the 2nd Amendment and seizing guns, there are also fines, imprisonment, forced mental health clinics, etc. Also am not on Facebook or anything else that provides data to the government. Try to become the invisible man.

If this proposal by liberal Democrats were to pass it would ban almost all modern firearms being produced and sold in the US today, and would wipe out most of the small arms industry along with the other allied industries who supply just about every item you can think of relating to guns, as those industries could not survive on bidding for diminishing military contracts alone.

If that were to happen many thousands of well paying American jobs in those industries would also go down the drain.

The politicians who voted for such an overreaching gun control bill that would punish and take away the rights of tens of millions of law abiding Americans for the criminal acts of several nut jobs would in a lot of cases find it very hard to get re-elected.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

U.S. blocks Iran’s pick as envoy to

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
