  • Trump Supreme Court Nominee Neil M. Gorsuch Would Respect the Second Amendment

    This week, President Trump kept one of his most important campaign promises by nominating an originalist judge – Neil Gorsuch – to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by Justice Antonin Scalia’s death last February. Scalia was the court’s foremost practitioner of originalism and textualism, judicial philosophies that seek to resolve constitutional questions by reference to the language of the document, as publicly understood at the time of its enactment.

    This approach led Scalia to author the historic opinion in District of Columbia v. Heller, which confirmed that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms for defensive purposes.

    Judge Gorsuch’s embrace of originalism is a bulwark for our Second Amendment rights.  When given the opportunity to consider the matter in his professional capacity, Judge Gorsuch has made clear that he understands the importance of the right to keep and bear arms.

    In a case concerning a technical question of what the government must prove to establish a violation of the Gun Control Act, Judge Gorsuch noted that the “Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to own firearms and may not be infringed lightly.” His statements in that case strongly indicate that he would hold the government to a high standard before allowing it to strip someone of the right to keep and bear arms.

    It’s hardly a secret that many in the federal judiciary have not shown the Second Amendment the respect it deserves. Justice Thomas, another originalist on the Supreme Court noted as much in 2015 when dissenting from the court’s refusal to hear a Second Amendment challenge to a San Francisco ordinance requiring firearms in the home to be kept locked away or disabled with a trigger lock. “Despite the clarity with which we described the Second Amendment’s core protection for the right of self-defense,” Thomas wrote, “lower courts, including the ones here, have failed to protect it.”

    Opposition to Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation has already started amongst gun control supporters, and they are once again proving that dishonesty is no impediment in pursuing their agenda. Addressing Judge Gorsuch’s nomination, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claimed that Judge Gorsuch favors “felons over gun safety.”  This claim was nothing more than a desperate attempt to smear the distinguished jurist, which is why it has already been found to be false by the fact-checking (and left-leaning) website Politifact.

    Disappointed supporters of Hillary Clinton are wailing, gnashing their teeth, and vowing to obstruct Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation. Their tactics, as usual, are heavy on hysteria and short on facts or reason.

    Yet both sides understood that the 2016 presidential election was largely a referendum on the future direction of the U.S. Supreme Court.  The American people spoke loudly and clearly in favor of respecting the original meaning of the Constitution. The Senate should therefore do its sworn duty and swiftly confirm Judge Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.


  • Bill de Blasio’s only successful because he pays off the unions

    Mayor Bill de Blasio, persistently beset by legal problems and entering his re-election year, just did what any New Yorker in trouble might do. He called the cops.

    That is, he laid a bundle of cash on the NYPD’s principal labor union, the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, settling the city’s last major outstanding labor contract.

    This doubtless was in the expectation that the pact will grease the skids for a second de Blasio term — that’s also the New York way.

  • Anti-Milo Fascist Berkeley Rioters Should be Jailed or Executed

    The First Amendment clearly states that Americans have the right to peaceably assemble. Peaceful assembly permits coming together in a civil manner and promoting ideals or engaging in civil protests. The occurrences on Wednesday proved that leftists lack the comprehension to differentiate between civil protests and belligerent riots. In Berkeley, California, angry liberals burned cars, assaulted people, and blocked highways to stop Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking on campus.  The Left has a loathsome pattern of resorting to violence as a means of censorship, despite their declarations of support for free speech.

  • House Votes to KILL Obama’s Social Security Admin Gun Grab (Veterans Win!)

    The House voted Thursday to cancel an Obama administration rule that would have had Social Security add names from its files to the list of people prohibited from buying guns in the national background check system.

    Under the rule, which got final approval as President Obama was heading out the door in December, the Social Security Administration was instructed to scour its records to spot people who were so mentally impaired that their checks were sent to a payment representative. Those names were then to be entered in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

    The GOP-controlled House voted 235-180, breaking down almost entirely along party lines, to kill the new rule using the Congressional Review Act, which gives Capitol Hill a chance to swat down a lame-duck president’s last-minute regulations.

    Gun-rights groups said the rule impinged on Americans’ Second Amendment rights, denying them the chance to buy a gun without good reason.

  • SAF IMPRESSED WITH JUDGE NEIL GORSUCH FOR SUPREME COURT

    The Second Amendment Foundation today said that Federal Judge Neil Gorsuch is an impressive choice to fill the vacancy on the United States Supreme Court, bringing with him a perspective on Constitutional rights that reflects strongly on the man he will replace, late Justice Antonin Scalia.

    “We are delighted at President Donald Trump’s selection,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “Based on what we know and what others are saying about Judge Gorsuch, we can honestly say that there may not be a better candidate to fill the seat left vacant by Justice Scalia’s passing last year.

    “We’re especially impressed with the fact that he has observed in a legal opinion that ‘the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to own firearms and may not be infringed lightly’,” he added. “Judge Gorsuch definitely understands that firearms ownership is an American tradition, as noted in a case called United States v. Games-Perez.”

    “President Trump has kept his word,” Gottlieb continued, “by nominating a superb high court candidate with an originalist approach to interpreting the Constitution, and particularly the Bill of Rights, as the Founders intended. We are eager to see him confirmed, and we are hopeful that he will enjoy smooth sailing through the confirmation process. After all, he was confirmed unanimously by the Senate when he was appointed to the Tenth Circuit Court.”

    Judge Gorsuch has an impressive background, with a bachelor’s degree from Columbia University, a law degree from Harvard and a philosophy degree from Oxford. He served in the Justice Department under the George W. Bush administration.

    “Antonin Scalia was a remarkable justice with a fine legal mind,” Gottlieb recalled. “It is our impression that Judge Gorsuch is cut from the same cloth. If he is confirmed by the Senate – and we see no reason why that should not happen – it is our expectation that Neil Gorsuch will prove himself to be a tremendous addition to the court, and among the wisest decisions in Donald Trump’s presidency.”


  • Trump Means the End of Liberal Small-Ball Governance

    After a week of President Trump, one thing is clear. We are not playing small ball in America anymore.

    The whole point of small ball, from basketball to baseball to poker to politics, is that you don’t do big plays and risky things. You aim to win through cunning and deception and your mastery of the rules.

    Small ball fits the liberal agenda because Americans really don’t want what liberals are offering. Liberals tell the American people that nothing will really change with ObamaCare, and if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. Same with gay marriage. All that stuff was above Obama’s pay grade until it wasn’t. Everything is done by deception.

    Obviously, President Trump doesn’t believe in small ball. He believes in big ball. He believes in in-your-face executive orders. He believes in Steve Bannon calling the New York Times to tell the Carlos Slim kids to put it where the sun don’t shine. He believes in stopping Muslim immigration until we know what is going on — as of 4:30 p.m. Friday.

    And Americans have never seen anything like it.

  • Preet Bharara to question Mayor de Blasio over City Hall corruption (De Blabbio’s Last Stand?!)

    Things are starting to get real for Mayor de Blasio.

    First the mayor was questioned for nearly two hours by Manhattan prosecutors over his fund-raising for state Senate elections — and now Hizzoner has agreed to talk to the feds because he wants to convince them to stop investigating him for possible corruption at City Hall, it was reported Friday.

    Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara set up the meeting with de Blasio, which will be held in the next two weeks without the protection of immunity, according to WNBC/Channel 4.

    Sources told the station that the mayor is convinced he can prove to investigators that he has not traded government favors for political donations during his time in office.

    The mayor ultimately believes he can sway them to drop their probe, the sources added.

  • Draining the Swamp at the U.N. – Start With the Arms Trade Treaty

    When looking to “drain the swamp” of meddling bureaucrats and global do-gooders, there is perhaps no better place to start than on the banks of the East River in New York, home to the headquarters of the United Nations. And, with the United States’ newest U.N. Ambassador, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, sworn into office, there is no better time to start than now.

    Four years ago, then Secretary of State John Kerry signed the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), an international agreement regulating the sale, transfer, and export of conventional weapons, including “small arms and light weapons” – meaning virtually every firearm on the market. Ostensibly, the treaty was to prevent the “human suffering” attributed to the international trade in “illicit” arms. However, rather than promoting “world peace” and protecting citizens of member nations from the scourge of “illicit” firearms, the multi-year U.N. effort was a thinly-veiled attempt to engage in gun control both internationally and domestically within member nations.

  • NRA Applauds Neil Gorsuch’s Nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court

    The National Rifle Association (NRA) applauds the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat on the United States Supreme Court.

    “President Trump has made an outstanding choice in nominating Judge Gorsuch for the U.S. Supreme Court. He has an impressive record that demonstrates his support for the Second Amendment,” said Chris W. Cox, Executive Director, NRA-ILA. “We urge the Senate to swiftly confirm Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, just as it did in confirming him to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit by a unanimous voice vote.”

    During his tenure on the Tenth Circuit, Gorsuch has demonstrated his belief that the Constitution should be applied as the framers intended.  To that end, he has supported the individual right to self-defense.  Specifically, he wrote in an opinion that “the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to own firearms and may not be infringed lightly.”

    “On behalf of our five million members, the NRA strongly supports Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. We will be activating our members and tens of millions of supporters throughout the country in support of Judge Gorsuch.  He will protect our right to keep and bear arms and is an outstanding choice to fill Justice Scalia’s seat,” concluded Cox.


  • Andrew Breitbart Is Here: February 1, 1969 – March 1, 2012

    Andrew Breitbart would’ve been 48 years old today. The PROPHETIC SONG, Breitbart Is Here, eerily predicted that Breitbart would still be here.

    Strangely enough, Andrew CONTRIBUTED, years later after his death, to the DEFEAT of Hillary Clinton and THE TRUMP WIN. If it wasn’t for Breitbart taking down the reprehensible Anthony Weiner, we might be looking at a Hillary Clinton SCOTUS pick today.

  • Sorry #NeverTrumpers But You Don’t Get To Dismount Your High Horse Today

    While we were getting bloodied in Chicago, Virginia and California your ilk were worried about our tone and political sensibilities.  But worse than that, much much worse than that, you #NeverTrumpers broke the cardinal rule of grassroots camaraderie, you aided the other side.

    While our candidate was wearing a friggin’ bullet-proof-vest to deliver Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, you took every opportunity to broadcast your litmus-test purist antagonism in every outlet you could muster.

    Your arrogant self-righteous efforts not only didn’t help, but they actually opposed our common sense objective. You were as much a benefit to Hillary Clinton and Mitch McConnell as Media Matters and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, perhaps even more.

  • Libturd Sen. Chris Murphy Wants ‘No Screening’ for Immigrants, More Gun Control

    During a January 30 appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) criticized President Trump’s immigration suspension and said he would rather see a move toward “no screening” and the passage of more gun control.

    Murphy claimed that the U.S. has ISIS “on its heels,” and the suspension of immigration from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, and Somalia will “[hand ISIS] a path to rebirth.”

    Random House executive editor Jon Meacham was also on the program and asked Murphy, “Do you see any merit in the President’s action? What do you believe should be the security screening? What should be the vetting for immigrants coming in?”

  • NRA Eyeing 30 Years of Pro-Gun SCOTUS

    The National Rifle Association (NRA) endorsed Donald Trump’s candidacy with the outspoken intention of saving the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) from the anti-gun, leftist jurists who would have certainly been nominated by Hillary Clinton.

    And now, just hours away from President Trump’s nomination of a SCOTUS nominee to fill the vacancy left by Antonin Scalia, the NRA is eyeing 30 years of a pro-gun SCOTUS.

  • Nazi Collaborator, Democrat Donor and Billionaire George Soros Behind (Past and) Latest Protests

    Newsmax reported on Sunday that former Nazi collaborator George Soros is behind this past weekends’ airport riots:

    Billionaire liberal activist George Soros is helping fund the airport protests against President Donald Trump’s executive order to ban refugees from war-torn Syria indefinitely and suspend visas from seven countries for at least 30 days, as PJ Media reported Sunday.

    This Soros connection, including reports of funding lawsuits to block the orders, begs the question: Are these protesters being paid to be there?
