As stated by the judge in his ruling:
“It is apparent that this case was filed to pursue the political purposes of the Brady Center and, given the failure to present any cognizable legal claim, bringing these defendants [Lucky Gunner] into the Colorado court… appears to be more of an opportunity to propagandize the public and stigmatize the defendants than to obtain a court order.”
The Brady Center predictably appealed the judge’s ruling and we are prepared to continue defending your rights and ours. While it is not yet clear when the $111,971.10 fee reimbursement will be paid, we are going to donate 100% of what is recovered to groups that support and defend the 2nd Amendment. We will fight to recover these funds from the Brady Center and to hold the Brady Center responsible for yet another frivolous lawsuit.
“The cold-blooded murder of two New York City police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, followed weeks of Sharpton’s vilification of law enforcement personnel. Now two police officers have been gunned down in Ferguson, Missouri,” wrote NLPC president Peter Flaherty in the letter. “Mr. France, police lives matter. You can demonstrate your support for law enforcement by ending your support for Sharpton without delay.”
NASCAR did not immediately comment on whether it still contributes to NAN and whether it would cut off support.
… not only are we wasting our own military resources — and anyone wondering what those additional 450 troops are doing? — but we are also blocking support to the one resilient ground force that has thwarted ISIS advances. What message does it send that President Obama is blocking support to the Kurdish forces? And our own U.S. Senate who wanted to arm unknown Syrian rebels — and we reported last week just how great that program is going — does not support bypassing the Iranian-controlled Baghdad regime?
A radical left-wing government in Greece is betting that more moderate European Socialists will meet their demands rather than risk opening a chasm that will expose the economic unsustainablity of the existing system. The Greek economy may be a fraud, but it’s a fraud built on a bigger Euro fraud.
And that’s a familiar pattern.
Greece is just treating the European experiment the way that the California Teachers Association treats the state. It’s a giant corrupt piggy bank, so why not raid it? It’s going to go bankrupt, but it will anyway.
That’s the typical mindset in Socialist countries … and in Obama’s America.
The collapse of the European experiment would mean the undoing of what the left has been working toward for a century. It’s cheaper to shoulder more Greek debt than to accede to such a disaster.
It’s hard to imagine that the country which produced history’s most noted mathematicians has produced a nation of people that are unable to understand the most basic of mathematical concepts. Either that or they have produced a nation of people so lacking in principle they are happy to enjoy an unaffordable standard of living paid for by the sweat and toil of others.
One can possibly be forgiven for thinking that the promise of ‘free stuff’ paid for by someone else had a numbing effect on the collective Greek mind but it’s stretching credulity too far by suggesting that George Papandreou, and subsequent Greek politicians, were unaware that they were spending Greece into bankruptcy.
Papandreou is also the leader of Socialist International, an organisation of global socialists who are dedicated to imposing the same disastrous policies that ruined Greece onto all countries around the world. Instead of a conviction and a prison sentence for the millions of lives he has destroyed, Papandreou is feted among the global elite as some kind of elder statesman and given appointments lecturing at prestigious educational establishments such as Harvard University and the School of Public Affairs, Columbia University, New York.
This modern Greek tragedy should serve as lesson to those nations that are being seduced by government propaganda that politicians can mandate equality of outcome and give away lots of ‘free stuff’ by simply redistributing wealth via taxing the so called ‘rich’ then when they run out of other peoples money, borrowing more from abroad.
There is no such thing as ‘free stuff’, be it health care, education, early retirement, food stamps, welfare benefits or anything else; it all has to be paid for by someone. If it’s borrowed money it will have to be paid back with interest. Living within ones means is morally right for individuals, businesses and governments alike. Expecting others to pick up the tab for an unaffordable lifestyle is parasitic and shameful in the extreme.
… bloodthirsty coward is living on £50,000 a year in handouts with his wife and five children in a £1 million house in West London. For the last 15 years, he has thwarted feeble government attempts to deport him, using human rights laws.
Al-Sibai and his family live in a three-storey, four-bedroom home in Ravenscourt Park. The rent for the housing association home is paid by British taxpayers. He parks his Toyota Corolla Verso – which cost £16,995 – in a dedicated disabled spot outside his house. Since both he and his wife are registered disabled, the car was paid for by you as well!
Al-Sibai and his wife are estimated to be on benefits of more than £48,000 a year – almost double the cap of £26,000. They are able to defy the limit because both are entitled to disability living allowance.
Dearborn has one of the largest populations of Muslims in the United States, with an estimated 40 percent of the city’s population being of Arab descent. So, for Ramadan, the police chief announced that he’s going to be enforcing a curfew on all residents — including Christians.
Just another day in Dearbornistan, the new liberal capital of crazy.

Barack Obama’s ideology is one that tells people they have no tomorrow, no higher and best use, and need government to take care of them until they die and are eaten by worms — but in the meantime buggery is cool. Secular leftism does not sell well when contrasted with an ideology that promises an afterlife filled with virgins and a present filled with heroic struggle against a Great Satan sissy in mom jeans.
Sanity itself is politically incorrect according to our moonbat ruling class. That isn’t hyperbole …
There was a time when people like this were kept in rubber rooms. But now the ruling class has a use for them.
For progressivism to succeed, the destruction of Western Civilization must be absolute. Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad. So philosophy is turned over to malevolent lunatics, in an attempt to do to the concept that 2 + 2 = 4 what they just did to the Confederate flag.
Those who donated would have gotten their money’s worth had the hoax not been exposed. They paid for the wretched little thrill of upside-down righteousness that goes with believing they helped an obnoxious freak stick it to the squares. What difference does it make if the money was actually spent on pizza and Big Macs, so long as progressives get to imagine a decent neighborhood being ruined by garish in-your-face pro-homosexual displays? But of course, knowing that it was a hoax kills the thrill.
The notion that gay rights advocates and their allies, who have spent decades suggesting that the institution of marriage represents patriarchal oppression, love and respect marriage so much that they wish to join in its binds, is inane. And the idea that the gay rights movement desperately seeks the tax assistance available to male-female married couples was made false long ago with the promises of civil unions.
This weekend’s Dionysian displays mirrored that sort of delirious jubilation with Justice Kennedy as a stand-in for God: He declared the fundamental morality of homosexuality, not merely its legality. Kennedy went so far as to declare that the government could confer “dignity” on relationships. Now, the notion that the gay rights movement seeks the “dignity” of marriage is similarly ridiculous — movements that seek “dignity” do not hold parades featuring the Seattle Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and a bevy of chaps in assless chaps. But they do seek the “dignity” of being told by a higher authority that their actions are right, just and good.
