- Liberal Incivility and Gabb… by Glenn At New…
When a gunman attempted to murder Rep. Gabriel Giffords in January 2011, the country was shocked by what was widely interpreted as an act that symbolized the incivility that had transformed American politics. That assumption, which was primarily aimed at undermining the Tea Party movement that had swept the midterm elections months before in the 2010 midterms, was soon debunked when we learned the shooter was an apolitical madman. But liberals have never ceased yapping about the implications of their opponents’ alleged meanness. Now it turns out the person who is doing the most to give the lie to this assertion is Ms. Giffords.
Giffords’s plight in the wake of the shooting engendered the support of all Americans as she struggled to recover from catastrophic wounds that forced her to abandon her political career. Like James Brady did a generation before, Giffords’s valiant recovery from a severe head wound made her the object of the nation’s sympathy and warm wishes. That wasn’t diminished by her activism on behalf of controversial gun-control laws. But as Giffords has begun to realize that empathy for her situation doesn’t translate into a willingness by the majority of Americans to embrace her positions on gun control, her intervention in political races is now taking on the aspect of a political attack dog rather than that of a sympathetic victim.
As Politico reports today in a story that runs under the headline “Gabby Giffords gets mean,” the former congresswoman has taken off the gloves in a series of political ads aimed at taking out Republicans she doesn’t like. In them, her super PAC seeks to exploit the suffering of other shooting victims but twists the narrative to make it appear that people like Martha McSally, the Republican woman running for Giffords’s old seat, were somehow involved or even complicit in violent shooting of a woman named Vicki by a stalker.
- Anti-Gun NY State Senate Ca… by Glenn At New…
A Long Island state Senate candidate who promises voters that “Nobody Works Harder!” stole $2 million by routinely billing for lawyering that never happened, his own law firm charges.
David Denenberg, a Nassau County legislator who’s running for the Senate as a Democrat, created an elaborate narrative to justify years of fake bills, according to a lawsuit the firm Davidoff Hutcher & Citron filed Tuesday.
The firm alleges Denenberg even drafted pretend court orders and forged judges’ signatures to justify some of his make-believe billing.
Denenberg, 51, was fired, and the matter was referred to Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch, according to the law firm. Her office declined comment Monday.
- NRA focuses on Three Major … by Glenn At New…
The National Rifle Association will weigh in on three of this year’s key Senate races with a multimillion dollar ad buy beginning Wednesday.
The NRA effort is aimed at boosting Republican Senate challengers in Arkansas, Colorado and North Carolina — the outcomes of which could likely determine which party controls the chamber.
The group’s campaign is expected to top $4 million in these states, spokesman Andrew Arulanandam confirmed to CNN. It will spend $1.4 million to boost North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis, who is running against incumbent Democrat Sen. Kay Hagan.
“Our Second Amendment rights are under attack by the Obama Administration, and we need leaders like Thom Tillis in the Senate to fight back,” states the ad.
- NYT, AP Ignore Large Contin… by Glenn At New…

At Tea Party and conservative events, the press routinely seeks out any shred of evidence of far-right extremism, racism or even uncivil behavior exhibited by attendees. If found, it then tries to portray even one or a few such people out of thousands as somehow typical.
Rallies in support of liberals’ pet causes get a completely different treatment. The press almost invariably ignores rampant left-wing extremism clearly on display. Sunday’s “Climate March” in New York City, along with other smaller marches in other parts of the world, exemplifies the blatant double standard. The Blaze, Gateway Pundit, and others reported no shortage of Gotham protesters often uncivilly advocating an end to capitalism and its replacement with “a socialist future.” The Associated Press and the New York Times ignored it all.
- Panera Bread Told Customers… by Glenn At New…
Panera Bread recently put out a statement asking customers to leave their legal and lawful firearms out of their stores. The anti-gun crowd has proclaimed victory, with the Bloomberg-funded group Moms Demand Action releasing a statement praising the decision of the store to disarm it’s customers.
But customers have responded quite negatively to Panera’s new firearms policy, with an unscientific poll showing an overwhelming majority, 83%, saying that the decision has changed their opinion of the restaurant for the worse.
- Pistol-packing pastor stops… by Glenn At New…
Praise the lord . . . and pass the ammunition.
A pistol-packing pastor helped catch a grandmother last week who police say has been stealing dozens of packages from the front porches of homes in a Texas town, KTRK reported.
Pastor Benny Holmes was, to hear his wife Pat tell it, “at his wits end” after packages delivered to his Baytown home kept disappearing.
“He was determined in his mind that he would sit here, however long it took, to see if he could find her,” Pat Holmes told the station.
His determination paid off when he apparently caught the thief on yet another trip to allegedly steal packages.
- Gabby Giffords Gets Mean in… by Glenn At New…
Gabby Giffords, irreproachable figure of sympathy, has fashioned an improbable new role for herself this election year: ruthless attack dog.
The former Democratic congresswoman, whose recovery from a gunshot wound to the head captivated the country, has unleashed some of the nastiest ads of the campaign season, going after GOP candidates in Arizona and New Hampshire with attacks even some left-leaning commentators say go too far. And Republicans on the receiving end are largely helpless to hit back, knowing a fight with the much-admired survivor is not one they’re likely to win.
Some of the toughest spots from Giffords’ newly formed pro-gun-control super PAC, Americans for Responsible Solutions, hammer Republican Martha McSally, a retired Air Force pilot who is running for the Arizona seat Giffords once held. One features a wrenching testimonial from a woman named Vicki who weeps and stumbles over her words as she recounts how her 19-year-old daughter was hunted down and murdered by an enraged ex-boyfriend.
“He had threatened her before. I knew. I just knew,” Vicki says. A narrator then declares that McSally “opposes making it harder for stalkers to get a gun.”
It’s no accident that Giffords is singling out McSally, people close to the former congresswoman say.
During her unsuccessful 2012 campaign, McSally ran TV commercials comparing herself to Giffords. The Giffords team fumed, and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, released a terse statement declaring, “Martha McSally is no Gabby Giffords.”
Glenn Says: Remember when the Democrats flew her to DC for a “historic comeback” vote on a party-line Bill not too long after she was shot in the head? She was so mentally handicapped that a staffer had to press the button for her. Probably the single most disgusting thing that has happened in politics in 30 years. She is a tool now. A puppet worked by her spouse to raise money and assassinate the character of pro-gun politicians. See our enemies for who they are: they use brain damaged people like Giffords and Brady to take away your civil rights!
- Limbaugh on the Republicans… by Glenn At New…
Look, let me tell you where we are with the Republicans. I had a guy was chatting back and forth, a friend last night. He said, “You seem remarkably calm.”
I said, “I am. It’s all about expectations. I finally figured out, the Republican Party’s what it is and isn’t anything gonna change it, and every day being invested in the hope they’re gonna change is a waste of time and energy. Let me give you an example…”
And then my friend said, “Let me just tell you something. If one of these ISIS guys get in through the Southern border and sets off some kind of bomb in LA, that’s the end. That’s the end of the Democrat Party.”
I said, “See, no. That’s where you’re looking at this the wrong way. If some ISIS guy gets into the country through the Southern border and drops a bomb, sets off a bomb in LA, it’s the Republicans who will get blamed for not working with Obama on comprehensive immigration reform that could have kept the ISIS guy out!”
The Republicans are going to get blamed for everything, and because they’re gonna get blamed for everything, they’re going to keep cooperating with the Democrats in hopes that they will stop being blamed. That’s the reality of the day, folks. Call it Battered Wife Syndrome, call it PTSD, call it outright fear of the media or what have you. But the Republicans… Look at John Boehner!
He just voted for the continuing resolution that funds Obamacare. All right? At the same time said that comprehensive immigration reform is got to happen. It’s the only thing that can help the American people. Well, so, I have ceased… That’s not the way to put it. The question that drew all these answers out of me was, “How do you get up and go to work every day? Aren’t you just totally frustrated?”
- George Zimmerman Details Wh… by Glenn At New…
With a smile on his face, George Zimmerman spent Saturday afternoon posing for photos, sharing hugs and shaking hands with gun enthusiasts at a firearms expo in Lake Mary.
“It’s so odd to me,” said Zimmerman, about the celebrity treatment he receives in public. “[But] it is appreciated.”
In his first interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Zimmerman described life after his acquittal last year in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The former Neighborhood Watch volunteer shot the unarmed black teen in Sanford on Feb. 26, 2012.
Now life for the 30-year-old is completely different.
He’s always moving.
He’s in debt.
And he’s constantly receiving death threats.
“I just try to be smart where I go,” said Zimmerman, who described the gun show at Gander Mountain Academy as a “friendly” event that didn’t warrant extra protection.
Zimmerman said he carries a semi-automatic handgun for added safety.
- Sale of toy guns banned in … by Glenn At New…
Atlantic City officials have voted to ban the sale of toy guns.
While they’re just for play, some look extremely realistic and have even been used in crimes – that’s why police are trying to get them off the streets.
The toy gun ordinance which was passed early Wednesday evening bans the sale and possession of an imitation firearm – unless it’s a bright color, clearly indicating that it’s not real.
