On November 7th, his administration gleefully voted at the UN for a renewed effort to pass the ‘Small Arms Treaty.’ But after the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut — and anti-gun hysteria in the national media reaching a fever pitch — there’s no doubt President Obama and his anti-gun pals believe the timing has never been better to ram through the U.N.’s global gun control crown jewel. I don’t know about you, but watching anti-American globalists plot against our Constitution makes me sick.An email from Senator Rand Paul, on behalf of the National Association on Gun Rights • Decrying the Obama administration’s shadowy collaboration with the United Nations, aimed at a constitutional end-around abolishing the Second Amendment via international arms treaty. If you haven’t heard about this, that may be because it’s actually a well-worn and fallacious conspiracy theory, but that didn’t stop Paul from lending his name to this paranoia-fueled fundraising effort from the National Association on Gun Rights. It’s a theory cut from virtually the same intellectual cloth as those UN-centric “Agenda 21” conspiracy theories, propagated by people like Alex Jones — who, as it happens, has landed the Kentucky Senator as an interview guest in the past. This is a major issue facing Paul, should he indulge bigger, national political ambitions — he’s proven extremely willing to court the affections (and in the process endorse the ideas) of people far out on the conspiratorial right-wing. source
Those were not meteorites, it was Americans testing their new weapons. [U.S. Secretary of State] John Kerry wanted to warn [Russian Foreign Minister Sergei] Lavrov on Monday, he was looking for Lavrov, and Lavrov was on a trip. He meant to warn Lavrov about a provocation against Russia.Russian MP Vladimir Zhirinovsky • Giving voice to the burgeoning movement of people who believe the Russian meteor yesterday wasn’t really a meteor. Zhirinovsky asserts it was an American weapons test which new Secretary of State John Kerry was unable to caution Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov about, who the State Department recently said Kerry couldn’t reach due to Lavrov’s trip to Africa. In disputing the celestial nature of yesterday’s crash landing, Zhirinovsky joins some ignoble company — former baseball player Jose Canseco tweeted yesterday that “no way” did a meteor hit Russia, blaming it instead on North Korea: “do the math.” source
Obama wants to put every private, personal firearms transaction right under the thumb of the federal government and he wants to keep all of those names in a massive federal registry. There’s only two reasons for a federal list on gun owners – to either tax ‘em or take ‘em.NRA executive Wayne LaPierre • Cherry-picking a single phrase from President Obama’s inaugural address to become the subject of his latest rant against the President and the push for stricter gun control. While we’re not big fans of LaPierre ourselves, we’d hate to see the man work himself into an early grave over these fears, and just like to remind him that sometimes tracking the sale of certain products can be extremely beneficial. Even when the products being tracked were manufactured with nothing but the best intentions (We’re looking at you pseudoephedrine). source
This criticism of the polls is craziness. I actually did some research on this today, which is more than you’ve done.Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace • Ripping radio host Mike Gallagher for suggesting that the presidential polls, which heavily favor Obama right now, have been manipulated. Wallace goes on: “The polls tell a story… Obama is winning. And Romney has got to win the debate.” Do you think more has to be done to call out this storyline?
The Muslim Brotherhood can’t even penetrate the Egyptian government.Ibrahim Ali Iraqi, Muslim Brotherhood leader from Egypt’s Daqheleya province • Denying allegations, brought forward by Rep. Michele Bachmann and four other members of Congress, that Hillary Clinton’s deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin has infiltrated the U.S. government on behalf of the Brotherhood. Bachmann stands by her questioning of Abedin’s connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, even after top members of the Republican Party spoke out against her. The New York Post also reports that Mrs. Abedin has been placed under federal protection following a death threat from a New Jersey resident. source (via • follow)
» So what does The Trenches hope to prove? According to an updated press release, based on the current state of the economy, the people behind The Trenches (the conservative website behind the bounty) aren’t convinced that Barack Obama was as good a student as he’s claimed. “You’ve had over three years to vet President Barack Obama. Yet in three years in office…you have either been oddly uninterested or purposefully ignorant of Barack Obama’s educational history,” reads the site, adding, “You were, however, quite interested in George Bush’s transcripts.”
