Survey Says on Gov’t, Politicians – Dysfunctional, Untrustworthy

A new poll from the Washington Post and ABC News shows that 72% of Americans think that most politicians cannot be trusted. The same nationwide group shows 64% believe that our political system is dysfunctional. Another recent poll by YouGov indicates that a growing number of Americans think that a military coup is possible in our future. As for the latest 2016 presidential polls, outsiders Donald Trump and Ben Carson lead the crowded GOP field while Hillary Clinton′s leads in the Democrat Party are slipping. Bernie Sanders now leads in both Iowa and New Hampshire, where he has a whopping 20-point lead. Is the United States headed for rebellion in 2016? Have the voters decided that they have had enough of ′politics-as-usual′?

Feds, Conservationists Seek to Ban Guns at National Parks

There is a move to ban firearms and target shooting at our National Parks. Various groups, such as conservation and hiking clubs, are petitioning the Bureau of Land Management to exercise such a ban. The New York Times recently published a story on this. They cite a number of incidents, from Utah to Colorado to North Carolina, where target shooters have been causing damage to the parks. In one case a camper was killed by a stray bullet. The U.S. Forest Service claims that shooting violations at our national parks is up 10% from a decade ago. Naturally, the National Rifle Association is opposing moves by the Feds to close off some areas of the parks from hunters and sport shooters. The vast majority of the violations are from parks west of the Mississippi, where the federal government owns a sizable percentage of the land.

Bye Bye Boehner: Saying Goodbye to the Champion We Never Knew

Conservatives cheered in 2014 when Republicans gained control of the U.S. Senate and strengthened their hold on the U.S. House of Representatives in a monumental mid-term whooping of the Democratic Party.  I certainly remember grinning happily as race after race went to the Republicans.  “Finally,” we thought, “the near-daily erosion of our country’s present, our children’s futures, and the values which made this country great is over!”  Our jubilation was short-lived, however, as it quickly became strikingly apparent that the leaders of the two chambers of Congress – Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) in the House and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in the Senate – were not the strong fortress wall that we hoped would halt (or at the very least slow) Obama’s and the Democratic Party’s liberal agenda. Instead, the past two years have demonstrated that neither “leader” is a fortress wall; even calling them a “gate” is generous as neither leader has demonstrated any intestinal fortitude to stand up for the conservative principles on which they campaigned and which helped send them back to Congress. For the past year-and-a-half, we have watched the Republican leadership in the House and Senate vote to give Obama and the Democrats most everything they have asked for with little fight and then bemoan their own perceived powerlessness.

Obama targets Gun Talk on Internet

There seems to be nothing sacred to Barack Obama, including free speech and private ownership of firearms. So says the the National Rifle Association, NRA, in an article in the Washington Examiner. Using federal bureaucracy and regulations, Obama is attempting to stop all blogs, chats, and even websites from talking about guns. The State Department is preparing to modify the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, ITAR, and the Arms Export Control Act, AECA, to restrict information on firearms. If it goes through, those who dispense even the most basic, technical information on guns and ammunition could face a fine of up to $1 Million dollars as well as a prison sentence.

ATF Reverses Ammo Ban, Claims ‘Publishing Mistake’

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, ATF, now say that they are not going to ban the so-called ′armor piercing′, green-tipped ammunition common;y used in the AR-15 rifle. That the alleged ban on the M855, 5.56mm NATO rounds was a ′publishing mistake′. A typo! This, despite the fact that they actually tried to justify the ban based on a law from 1986 against purpose-made ′armor piercing′ rounds which could be fired from pistols, or handguns, against law enforcement officers and federal agents wearing ′soft′ body armor. The green tipped ammunition, as I explained in a previous article on the subject, are tipped with a polymer which is designed to improve ballistic performance and actually make the round safer to use when hunting or target shooting.

Right Movie Review – Atlas Shrugged, Part III, Who Is John Galt?

So who is John Galt? Kristoffer Polaha stars as John Galt in the movie, Atlas Shrugged, Part III. The DVD came out on Tuesday, as well as being available ′On Demand′ through the cable service I subscribe to. The third and final portion of Ayn Rand′s marvelous tome, pitting Capitalism against Socialism came out last September but was only in some 242 theater screens, and briefly at that. So if you haven′t seen it yet, now is your big chance! But is it worth seeing? If for no other reason, we have the lovely Laura Regan cast as Dagny Taggart.

50th Anniversary of Ronald Reagan ‘A Time For Choosing’ Speech (Video)

Today is the 50th anniversary of the ′A Time for Choosing′ speech that Ronald Reagan made on television for the Barry Goldwater campaign. The speech launched the political career for Reagan and set the foundation for the Conservative Movement. Reagan sums up the whole fallacy of Modern Liberalism in just under 30 minutes. In clear, simple language, Ronald Reagan exposed the entire failure and boat-load of lies concerning Big Government and the alleged altruism it claims it provides. He showed by numerous examples how government programs actually harm citizens, misleads them, abuses them and over-taxes them. How government programs are convoluted and completely illogical. Big Government, to Ronald Reagan, defies common sense and rational thinking.

What? Guns Everywhere and No One Gets Shot???

The NRA convention has come and gone from my hometown, Indianapolis. The media gave it the predictable mixed bag coverage and now the grand debate on gun rights moves to another place and time. Meanwhile, the question that will go unasked, much less answered as the last Bible clinging, gun clutching right wing radical leaves the convention center isn’t what happened here, but what didn’t.
