- VIDEO: Wife of Cuomo’s GOP … by Glenn At New…
When New York’s Democratic Committee, led by Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), released an ad suggesting that his GOP challenger Rob Astorino wanted guns in classrooms, Mrs. Astorino had had enough.
In a new online video, Sheila Astorino skewers Cuomo for the misleading attacks on her husband:
“You’ve really gone too far for this mom and schoolteacher. Telling people my husband wants guns in classrooms. Guns in classrooms? You can’t be serious,” she says. “You used an extra curriculum rifle-safety program in a rural upstate county to make it sound like Rob would threaten the safety of school children. How dare you.”
In the misleading Cuomo ad in question, it is likely referring Astorino’s support of school marksmanship programs in upstate New York. But, Astorino is adamant about using guns responsibly and he insisted that the Second Amendment is not something that should be threatened by those few who use firearms for the wrong reasons:
“Fishing and hunting has always been a part of our culture in America and very strongly here in New York. And because some bad people do some very bad things with guns doesn’t mean we should change our whole society and way of life,” said Astorino.
Cuomo may still have a 22-point lead in the polls overall, but a recent survey revealed that Astorino has come within 4 points of the governor in Central New York. This is largely due to Cuomo’s unpopular “SAFE Act” gun control bill, which banned the sale of AR-15s and changed former gun possession misdemeanors into felonies.
Cuomo has also lost some support thanks to his disbanding of the ethics committee the Moreland Commission when it seemed to get too close to his campaign. This is a scandal the New York Times did not shy away from reporting. What’s more, this Monday the New York Post “heartily endorsed” Astorino.
Oh yeah, and joking that people under Ebola quarantine should “read his book” certainly won’t win him any votes.
With six days to go, however, perhaps Cuomo can afford to make a few gaffes.
- If Republicans Take the Sen… by Glenn At New…
With less than a week to go before the 2014 midterm elections, it is looking more and more like the Republicans will take control of the Senate and increase their hold on the House, possibly even taking over more state legislatures and governorships. This will essentially make President Obama a lame duck for the remainder of his time in office.
So how does that play out, with a repudiated leftist president still pursuing a progressive liberal agenda, faced with a Congress controlled by the opposition? We explore three possible options: The best case,worst case, and most likely scenarios.
Best Case Scenario
The Republicans ride an election night wave, picking off all of the expected Senate seats and even a couple that weren’t considered in play. With a solid majority in both houses of Congress, the GOP immediately sets about finishing business that has been sitting idle for the past few years.
New Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brings to the floor all 300+ House bills that Harry Reid has been ignoring. Numerous pieces of legislation are passed that repeal the worst bits and pieces of Obamacare, but not the whole law. Job creation is put on the front burner, and energy production is unleashed, by way of a reduction in the corporate tax rate and a roll back in burdensome regulations.
- Obama’s ‘Dreame… by Glenn At New…
A significant number of voters who were not citizens cast illegal ballots in U.S. elections and the possibility exists that those unlawful ballots helped President Barack Obama to win the election in 2008, according to two public-interest organizations, one of which is located on the campus of the left-leaning Harvard University campus. While the study was originally aimed at dispelling claims of significant voter fraud, it surprisingly confirms that elections are in some cases being stolen.
Of significance is the academic study appears to confirm the nonpartisan Judicial Watch’s allegations that while Democrats accuse their political opponents of stealing elections — such as their accusation that George W. Bush “stole” the 2000 election from Al Gore — it is the votes cast by foreign nationals that have helped Democrats steal elections.
- BULLIES: Moms Demand Action… by Glenn At New…
Moms Demand Action has been conducting a bullying campaign in recent weeks on behalf of their employer, Michael Bloomberg. Moms Demand and their gun control sister group, Everytown for Gun Safety, are attempting to force the nation’s largest grocery store chain to pass a policy banning the open carry of firearms. They are pushing for store policies that are more restrictive than national, state, and local laws.
The prohibitionist gun group wants to put Kroger employees in the uncomfortable position of having to confront law-abiding customers and ask them to leave Kroger stores. The effort is part of a national campaign by the Bloomberg-owned gun control groups to ostracize 100 million Americans who own firearms.
Kroger maintains the logical position that it is the duty of government bodies to decide consistent firearm policies, not retailers.
- Obama shifting America away… by Glenn At New…
This White House’s relationship with Israel, and particularly Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has always been strained, but it is fair to assume today that American relations with the West’s closest ally in the Middle East are downright hostile.
The White House is making it clear for all interested observers that they do not believe close relations with the Israeli government are a priority. AllahPundit’s dissection of an interview an administration official gave The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, in which Netanyahu was ungraciously described as “recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, and ‘Aspergery,’” is a must-read.
AllahPundit observed that the unnamed administration in that piece took credit for preventing Israel from attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities, called Netanyahu a “chickensh*t” for not pulling the trigger despite Washington’s objections, and mocked Jerusalem for now being unable to successfully eliminate Iran’s hardened atomic weapons facilities. Essentially, the administration is taking credit for saving the Iranian nuclear program.
Logically, this is indefensible. The president has repeatedly assured the public that his administration’s goal was to avoid presiding over the nuclearization of Iran. Even if you suspect that he is not fully committed to that outcome, it is safe to assume that he is dedicated to avoiding the scorn and derision of historians who will look back on his presidency as one which allowed the volatile Middle East to grow exponentially more dangerous. But the administration’s decision makes sense when viewed within the framework of its determination to shift America away from its alliance with Israel and towards friendlier relations with Tehran.
- AZ Democrat Gubernatorial C… by Glenn At New…
Former Clinton White House Deputy Director Fred DuVal (D) is running for governor of Arizona, and if he wins, he will put his support behind the implementation of Colorado-like gun control.
In March 2013, Colorado’s legislature passed new measures barring private gun sales in the state. The measures require a law-abiding citizen who sells a gun to another law-abiding citizen to do so in the presence of a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder, which demands a background check. The measures also place a new fee on the sale of the firearm to cover the cost of that background check.
Governor John Hickenlooper (D) signed the measures into law, and now, a law-abiding citizen in that state can no longer sell a gun to another law-abiding citizen without government permission, even though Americans have been doing so since 1791.

Tired of listening to Progressives tell you that the Second Amendment only allows people in militias to keep and bear arms? Or that the Founders would have never intended the Second Amendment to apply to modern weapons? In his latest FIREWALL Bill recounts a remarkable conversation about the precise wording of the Second Amendment, and sums up why the document says what it means and means what it says.

- SAF Fights For Individual S… by Glenn At New…
The Second Amendment Foundation today offered testimony before the First Committee of the United Nations General Assembly on behalf of the right of individual self-defense, especially for women in developing countries.
Speaking for SAF was Operations Director Julianne Versnel, who told the panel, “The United Nations recognizes the right of governments to defend themselves, and to possess the means of doing so. Yet this body perpetuates the situation that keeps the number of women victims growing by denying them, and in fact all human beings, the means to–and decrying even their right to—defend themselves.
“They are the victims not of small arms,” she continued, “but of political philosophies and state policies that say only governments are worthy of defending themselves. To argue that people have the right to live but not to defend their lives is to argue in favor of continuing to keep women at risk of criminal violence in places where government does little to protect them.”
Noting that “more people die every day from malaria than are murdered by small arms in three days,” Versnel detailed how more women and children die from starvation every day than are murdered with small arms over a 15-day period. She urged the committee to remember women who are “raped by armed gangs in Mexico” and those who are mutilated, or murdered in so-called “honor violence.”
Versnel told the committee that the U.N. “must address the right of women to defend themselves and their right to have the physical means–including firearms—of doing so. Or, acknowledge the hypocrisy inherent in proclaiming support for women’s causes while keeping them vulnerable to male-perpetuated criminal violence.”
