Political Gun Debate Resurfaces After Washington Naval Yard Shooting

The blood of twelve killed victims at the Washington Naval Yard shooting was still warm as the political gun control debate began again. Aaron Alexis, pictured below, is now confirmed as the sole suspect in the shooting at the Naval Yard on Monday. Discharged by the Navy in 2011, Alexis was known to have many mental health issues, including anger and paranoia, along with some reports that he heard voices. He was also known to be obsessed with violent video games and has committed at least two other shooting incidents before Monday. In 2004, Alexis reportedly shot the tires of a neighbor when he lived in Washington State and again in 2010 when he discharged a handgun in his apartment in Fort Worth, Texas, sending the bullet up into the apartment above him. The U.S. Navy did treat him for his mental disorders and despite of this and his past, Alexis still managed to obtain a security clearance, giving him access to the Naval Yards as a subcontractor.

We are the Problem

I’m not exactly sure when it began, perhaps with the promise of a chicken in every pot, or maybe it was decades before, but the problem is clearly how we view politics in America. Whether it is state and local elections, or national campaigns, as each cycle rolls by, we tend to expect more and more. Politics have become a game of ‘one-upmanship’ largely at the expense of We The Taxpayer.

The Demise of the GOP

(ed note- RightPundits welcomes new writer, Brady Shaw.)

I believe we live in an historic time. We have watched the Progressive movement over the past 100 years chip away at our Constitutional societal constructs and infiltrate every aspect of government, now including even the Republican party. Oh, there are still a few great Republicans out there, carrying the torch of liberty exemplified in the Tea Party movement and so on, but the party establishment seems to be entranced with the same Progressive mindset as the modern liberal. I believe we are witnessing the demise of the GOP before our very eyes. Read the rest of this entry »

Rick Santorum Takes On GOP

Just when you thought it was safe, Rick Santorum is back and takes on the GOP! During his Iowa homecoming, Rick Santorum brings a whiff of candidacy, laying out plans for a Middle Class economic agenda. Gearing up for another obvious presidential run in 2016, Rick Santorum calls the Obama government timid on terror. Still, many question why Rick Santorum is not Conservative enough to challenge other Republican hopefuls, like Ted Cruz or Rand Paul. He failed miserably in trying to beat Mitt Romney of all people. Many other 2016 contenders are also checking in at the Iowa State Fair, such as Donald Trump. Can Santorum rally enough support to make another go at the White House?

Rep. Charles Rangel Calls Tea Party ‘White Crackers’

Charlie Rangel must have been worshiping at a shrine of the Shroud of Trayvon Martin, the hoodie that the Smithsonian now wants to display. Rangel called the Tea Party a bunch of ′white crackers′ during an interview with The Daily Beast. ″It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police.″, said Rangel. Of course, Rangel is wrong, since the Tea Party is all about individual freedom, something the Congressman knows nothing about. Like all Liberal Democrats, Rangel is all about making government larger and more powerful. One has to wonder about Peter King, another New York state Congressman, who now appears to be pals with Charles Rangel concerning their both supporting the NSA domestic spying of American citizens.

Mark Sanford Wins – Obama, Democrats Losers

Former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford wins the special election yesterday for the 1st Congressional District, beating Elizabeth Colbert Busch 54-45. The seat was vacated by Tim Scott when he was appointed to the U.S. Senate by current Governor Nikki Haley after Jim Demint resigned to head the Heritage Foundation. Sanford′s victory could be seen as redemption for his silly Appalachian Trail story when he was visiting his girlfriend in South America. Democrats had pushed hard to win the seat and the Liberal Media did all they could to trash Sanford. Will Stephen Colbert hang his head in shame over his sister′s loss? Will Barack Obama now have to face the probability that the 2014 mid-term elections will keep the House in Republican hands?

Neat Things to Remember

Tonight, I will present a short list of some of my favorite, interesting political ironies, with a short analysis. After the political ironies, we will look at the Al Smith Dinner, one of my favorite parts of the campaign:

“The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever, to 46 million people. Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us “Please Do Not Feed the Animals.” Their stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.”

Put Up a Fight

Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. is regarded as a very liberal member of the House of Representatives, and was recently re-elected to his House seat… while living in a mental hospital. According to the research I have conducted, he has been living in this mental hospital for health reasons since June, after his diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder.

Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. just resigned from his seat in the US House of Representatives, serving since 1995. What I question is that he’s been incapable of performing his duties as Representative since June, yet he ran for re-election. Then, nearly 2 weeks after his re-election, he resigns, which will cost the taxpayers several million dollars to hold a special election.
