Sometimes A Political Cartoon Says It All

Hillary Does Want to Ban Guns No Matter What “Politifact” Says

Hillary Does Want to Ban Guns No Matter What “Politifact” Says
In response to presidential candidate Donald Trump's NRA speech on Friday, the too-clever-by-half Clinton campaign produced an admittedly confused "Venn diagram" suggesting that Americans hate guns, now comes "Politifact" to "inform" us that, in the opinion of the leftist media, Hillary Clinton would not "abolish" the Second Amendment.

Don't believe that.

For the record, I had my own little encounter with Politifact in October, 2009, when they tried to "disprove" our assertion that Obamacare had anti-gun implications.  After I argued them into a corner over the telephone, the Politifact editor, at the last minute, changed the subject of the "inquiry" -- I assume, in order to avoid conceding that the "gun lobby" had a valid point.  We didn't bother attacking them at the time because we knew Harry Reid's manager's amendment to Obamacare would have extensive language taking care of the "non-existent" gun problem.

As in 2009, however, "fact-checker" reporters who know no more about gun law than the Bloomberg organization have gotten it wrong.

The dissent in D.C. v. Heller, joined by two of the sitting liberals of the Supreme Court, was specifically around the question of whether the Second Amendment was nothing more than the right of a state to set up a militia.  If this becomes the view of the court, then, as far as the judiciary is concerned, the Second Amendment confers no rights on individuals at all.

AP: Soros-Backed Group that Helped Sell Iran Nuclear Deal DIRECTLY FUNDED journalists and media outlets — Gave NPR $700,000 since 2005, $100,000 just last year

Read this latest dispatch from Omri Ceren, political analyst and The Israel Project senior adviser, breaking down the blockbuster AP story on how the group that helped sell Iran nuke deal also funded media. It is an extraordinary window into how media is bought and paid for. It’s deeply disturbing, like watching sausage being made.

Here’s the back-story on how and why the media supported the most dangerous “deal” in American history — Obama’s nuclear pact with Iran.

“A group the White House recently identified as a key surrogate in selling the Iran nuclear deal gave National Public Radio $100,000 last year to help it report on the pact and related issues, according to the group’s annual...
