Piers Morgan threatens to
self-deport over gun control

United Press International, by Kate Stanton

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/31/2012 4:54:40 PM

Update: Piers Morgan is taking a cue from Mitt Romney´s pre-election immigration platform and threatening to deport himself if the U.S. fails to crack down on guns. In a Sunday column for the Daily Mail, Morgan responded to some viewers unhappy with the British CNN anchor´s vocal pro-gun control stance: The concerted effort to get me thrown out of the country – which has so far gathered more than 90,000 signatures – struck me as rather ironic, given that by expressing my opinion I was merely exercising my rights, as a legal US resident, under the 1st Amendment, which protects free speech.

Comments:
Try this one, idiot. Put a gun to your head and see who tries to stop you.

Hates the 2nd Amendment but wraps himself around the 1st.

Morgan, you expressed your opinion and the 100,000+ expressed theirs. That´s the first amendment in action. So...shape up or ship out.

Though I have never watched his program, this certainly seems to be an exceedingly annoying individual. He is probably receiving a lot more attention than he warrants - if he warrants any attention at all. It would probably be better just to ignore people like him. Making a free speech martyr of him by seeking to deport him is preposterous. The very idea assigns an importance to him and his opinions that neither appear to merit. Who, after all, is Piers Morgan, that Americans should be mindful of him?

Just another BS PR stunt by the pinheaded drama queen. Next week he´ll threaten to hold his breath until he gets his way.

Instead of throwing him out of the country, just dump him off on the doorstep of an MS13 hangout in SoCal. He´ll be begging for a permit to carry a firearm after that.

How many US citizens given an opportunity to host a show on the BBC would get away denigrating the royal family or the British government or British citizens for that matter. He is a typical ingrate and he knows it. I read UK web sites. They can be delightfully insightful about the US, but they can be extremely obtuse at the same time. I bet he does not have the gonads to critize all religions or other sacred books other than the Bible.

Half this country has no viable outlet to protest what obama and the left are doing to this country,so you see petitions like this and secession movements as acts of desperation to get a point across.

People can´t stand american liberals challenging gun ownership,then along comes a foreigner piling on rubbing more salt in the wound.

Morgan loves all the attention he´s getting from this hoping more people will watch his show when all he´s done is invite boycotters.

This story has real legs. This is at least the third, maybe there´s been more, article about Piers on this site. I´ve seen similar articles at maybe 25 different sites and it´s also on TV. This is best thing that´s ever happened to Piers. A couple of weeks ago almost no one knew who he was and his show was going to be cancelled. Now he´s the talk of the nation. He firmly believes bad PR is better than being ignored. I thought it was funny but I´d hate to see him make money off it.

Mazda Recalling Cars
Due to Danger From Insect
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/5/2014 11:01:51 AM     Post Reply
Detroit - Mazda is recalling 42,000 Mazda6 cars in the U.S. because spiders can weave a web in a vent hose and cause the fuel tank to crack. The recall involves cars from the 2010 through 2012 model years equipped with 2.5-liter engines. The yellow sac spider, which is attracted to hydrocarbons, builds webs that cause pressure to build in the fuel tank. That increases the risk of fuel leaks and fire. Mazda recalled cars in 2011 for the same problem. It put covers on the vent line, but has found spiders can get past them. Mazda will update the cars' software for free beginning this month to ensure that the fuel tank pressure doesn't build up.

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

Milford, CT - Two British men who pleaded guilty to raising money for al Qaeda and the Taliban were denied their bid on Friday to gain access to secret documents about a witness whose testimony could have a major impact on how long they spend in prison. The pair, 39-year-old Babar Ahmad and 34-year-old Syed Talha Ahsan, have argued in papers filed in U.S. District Court in New Haven, Connecticut, that they have a right to more information on the witness, British citizen Saajid Badat. According to U.S. prosecutors, Badat was recruited into al Qaeda as a result of Ahmad's work and went on to play a role in the attempt by "shoe

Ecuador´s Tungurahua volcano
revives, spews 6-mile ash column

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/4/2014 10:53:21 PM     Post Reply
Quito, Ecuador - Ecuador´s Tungurahua volcano has spewed a 6-mile (10-kilometer) column of ash after a powerful, five-minute explosion that shot pyroclastic material onto its northern and northwestern flanks. Ecuador´s geophysics institute said Friday´s blast occurred at 6:10 p.m. local time and was followed by a second, four-minute explosion and five lesser tremors. The 16,480-foot (5,023-meter) volcano, nearly 90 miles (140 kilometers) south of Quito, revived on Feb. 1, with eruptions that affected a third of Ecuador´s provinces and temporarily closed a regional airport. Tungurahua has been erupting sporadically since 1999.

Understanding Particulars
of G.M.’s Safety Recall

If you drive one of the 2.6 million General Motors cars recalled because of a faulty ignition switch, you’re probably eager for the part to be replaced. (Snip) While G.M. has said they are safe as long as extra items are removed from the key ring, some consumer advocates and lawmakers have urged G.M. to warn owners not to drive the cars until they are fixed, saying that they still pose a danger. On Friday, a federal judge in Texas refrained from ruling on an emergency motion seeking to require the automaker to do that, saying she needed more time. G.M. had announced the recall of 1.62 million small cars from model years 2007 and earlier,

Sarah Palin to David Letterman:

Sarah Palin is not only celebrating David Letterman’s just-announced retirement, she says she hopes it might start a trend. “It’s cool, you know, out with the old, in with the new,” the former Alaska governor said on Fox News’s “Hannity” on Thursday night, after Letterman announced he would retire in 2015 that afternoon. The conservative darling famously clashed with Letterman in 2009 after he told a joke about her daughter that she said crossed a line. He later apologized. Speaking from Florida where Palin was fundraising for upstart Republican congressional candidate Lizbeth Benacquisto, Palin said she hoped Letterman’s decision

Last month, the New York Times reported that satellite images appeared to show that Iran was undertaking a strange task: Creating a nonfunctional, full-size replica of an American Nimitz-class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier at the Gachin shipyard near Bandar Abbas on the Persian Gulf. Why, exactly, would Iran do this? Analysts told the Times that the boat might be blown up, either as target practice or for propaganda purposes. Iranian media rebutted these theories, instead reporting that the boat was part of a set being built for a movie based on the 1988 downing of an Iran Air passenger jet by the USS Vincennes.

Cleveland - As excited baseball fans, many of them wearing Cleveland´s smiling Chief Wahoo logo, headed into Progressive Field for Friday´s home opener, a smaller group stood by unable to share their enthusiasm. Holding hand-painted signs that read, "We Are Not Honored," and "Our Children Are Not Mascots," a contingent of Native Americans and some of their supporters demonstrated against the Indians´ use of their red-faced Wahoo logo. The protesters, who have been gathering outside the ballpark´s entrances on opening day for years to voice their displeasure about the team´s use of the long-standing logo,

‘Escalating argument’ direct

Officials now believe that an argument was a “direct, precipitating factor” leading to Wednesday’s shooting at Fort Hood, Lt. Gen. Mark A. Milley, the post’s commander, said during a news conference Friday afternoon. Army Spec. Ivan A. Lopez opened fire on Wednesday, killing three people and injuring 16, leading to a frenzied, chaotic scene on and around the sprawling installation. “His underlying medical conditions are not a direct precipitating factor,” Milley said Friday. “We believe that the immediate precipitating factor was more likely an escalating argument in his unit area.”

A dour Vladimir Putin glares ever so frostily, full of menace, free of mirth, ready to annex any passer-by unwise enough to get too close. Tony Blair stares ahead, sober and resolute. Hamid Karzai, in traditional green cap and cape, glances off to the side, almost as if checking over his shoulder for the Taliban — or perhaps for the United States. The Dalai Lama looks serene, Stephen Harper jovial, Jiang Zemin grim. The world’s most distinctive gallery of international leaders opens in Dallas on Saturday, famous faces as seen through the eyes of the former president of the United States and noted amateur painter, George W. Bush.

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died.

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”
