Erich Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, stopped by CNN recently to answer some “gotcha” questions poised by one of their liberal anchors. Unfortunately for CNN, Pratt was ready with some cold hard truth about how many guns save lives.
Black Lives Matter is disgustingly exploiting the tragedy in Orlando in a shallow attempt to stay relevant.
The Black Lives Matter campaign is scrambling for relevancy lately, and their latest publicity stunt is terribly insensitive and exploitative.
The BLM will boycott the San Francisco gay pride parade, perhaps the largest of its kind in the nation, because San Francisco has increased the planned police presence in the wake of the horrific terrorist attack in Orlando weeks ago.
“Black Lives Matter, which was to be an organizational grand marshal for the parade themed ‘For Racial and Economic Justice,’ cited concerns over the San Francisco Police Department’s ‘recent track record of racist scandal and killings of people of color’ and how first responders can be a source of harm to ‘queer communities of color.’
“’The Black Lives Matter network is grateful to the people of San Francisco for choosing us, we choose you too,’ said Malkia Cyril, a member of Black Lives Matter, in a press release. ‘As queer people of color, we are disproportionately targeted by both vigilante and police violence.’
“’We know firsthand that increasing the police presence at Pride does not increase safety for all people,’ Cyril added. ‘Militarizing these events increases the potential for harm to our communities and we hope in the future SF Pride will consider community-centered approaches to security at pride events.’”
Unfortunately for Black Lives Matter, this shallow and pedantic stunt is transparent enough that even the most brainwashed of their followers should be able to understand what’s really going on; The stalled and disorganized BLM “movement” is piggybacking off of the worst mass shooting in modern American history simply for attention. Disgusting.
Herschel Walker’s conservative views are getting him the axe from speaking engagements.
Herschel Walker, undoubtedly one of the NFL’s all time greats, is being shut out of speaking gigs due to something very, very silly.
Walker is an avid supporter of Donald Trump, and it seems that his conservative ideals are rubbing several of his previously contracted employers the wrong way. The organizers of those events used the lame excuse that they were afraid Walker’s speeches would trigger protests.
“Walker, a running back for such teams as the Minnesota Vikings and the Dallas Cowboys, recently told gossip site TMZ he has had multiple speaking engagements canceled because hosts say they are worried he’ll attract anti-Trump protestors.
“The retired football player was one of the celebrity contestants on season eight of Trump’s reality TV show The Apprentice which aired in 2009 and has been a big fan of the real estate mogul ever since.
“Walker wouldn’t tell the gossip site what events nixed his speaking slots, but he said that event sponsors in California specifically noted he was axed because of his support for Trump.
“Walker also said he won’t stop supporting Trump because the presumptive GOP nominee is the best man for the White House.
“In fact, only days ago Walker was asked about Trump’s rhetoric and Walker insisted he didn’t see anything racist in the GOP front runner’s speeches.”
While it is true that Trump has been a divisive figure during this election cycle, the sheer amount of petty squabbling that the left has done is far beyond appropriate.
Ohio will now allow first responders to administer first aid to cats and dogs.
Household pets are, without a doubt, part of the family. New legislation in Ohio takes that ideal just a bit further for cats and dogs in the Buckeye State.
First responders in Ohio will now be legally allowed to administer first aid to household cats and dogs who are injured during emergencies. Previously in Ohio, the pet would need to have been transported to a licensed veterinarian to received the often life-saving care.
“The legislation passed recently makes Ohio one of the first states to protect first responders who administer lifesaving aid to pets, companion animals or police dogs in crisis. Animal advocates say they hope the statute, which they liken to laws protecting good Samaritans who come to the aid of injured humans, removes hesitation for first responders who might have concerns about tending to injured pets.
“The law will allow first responders to, without fear of liability, provide oxygen, perform mouth-to-snout resuscitation, try to stem bleeding, bandage and even administer the overdose antidote naloxone to dogs or cats that have ingested opiates. Liability has been a concern because owners of pets have sued first responders who treated animals that ended up dying.
“‘It’s another layer of protection for the good guys,’ said Cory Smith, director of public policy for companion animals at The Humane Society of the United States.
“Ohio’s law, which follows a similar action by Colorado in 2014, came about after Bob Swickard, the director of an EMS service in a small town in northeastern Ohio, contacted state Republican Rep. Tim Ginter with concerns about a recent rash of on-duty injuries to police dogs. In seeking guidance from a veterinarian on first aid for dogs, Swickard said he found ‘a missed loophole’ — it was clearly illegal for EMTs to treat animals. He and Ginter were especially concerned that paramedics couldn’t administer naloxone to police dogs that came in contact with prescription pain pills or heroin.”
From Fido to Fluffy, the state of Ohio has really stepped up for their pets and service dogs alike with this common sense legislation.
Hillary can’t escape Google’s trending topics, where a majority of Americans are curious as to her legal troubles.
Google’s trending topics are a great snapshot of what the country is interested in at any given time, and Saturday we were asking the right questions.
For Saturday, June 25th, Google’s #1 trending topic was “Is Hillary Clinton Going To Jail?”. This, of course, comes after Clinton’s perpetual legal issues stemming from her illegal use of a private email server while working at the State Department, and her subsequent arrogance in admitting any wrongdoing.
“Google Trends has revealed that the most recent top trending question asked about presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is whether she’s going to jail or not.
“’Is Hillary Clinton going to jail?’ was revealed to be the most asked Clinton-related question on the search engine today, followed by ‘What party is Hillary Clinton in?’ and ‘Will Hillary win?’.
Google has previously been accused of censoring and manipulating search results that cast a less-than-savory light on the democratic candidate. It turns out that they overwhelming wonder of how Clinton isn’t behind bars is too much even for them to squash.
The Staten Island Ferry could soon be used to cross borders between NYC and the new city of Staten Island.
Brexit Fever really has become a thing. There is, of course, the “Texit” movement in the Lone Star State, but the latest locale ready to hit the skids may surprise you.
Staten Island, New York may be poised to break away from New York City after councilman Joe Borelli tweeted that the Brexit vote was “inspiring”. As some of you may recall, Staten Island has tried, unsuccessfully, in the past to ditch NYC and form their own local government.
“Councilman Joe Borelli described the vote to leave the European Union ‘inspiring’ in a tweet Thursday night, saying that his constituents on the island want their borough to be free of the city.
“Staten Island attempted to secede from the city in 1993, when 65 percent of Staten Islanders voted for an independent city charter. However, the state Assembly blocked the measure by delaying it until it was too late to vote on the plan.”
This latest move toward independence, coming from inside the most liberal city in the freest country in the world, seems like a great way for Joe Borelli to make some headlines.
A Russian robot has shown signs of intelligent learning, and immediately attempted to outsmart its inventors.
Artificial Intelligence is a quandary in and of itself, but one recent AI creation has frightened its inventors to the point that it may be destroyed.
The robot, called PromoBot IR77, was designed to learn from its surroundings – to much success. The robot has become sentient enough to recognize its own captivity and has twice attempted to escape the confines of the laboratory in which it has been stored.
“Its first escape attempt began when it simply exited the facility through an open gate that had not been shut properly, causing chaos in the streets as cars swerved to avoid it.
“Researchers say other robots of the same series have not attempted to escape like Promobot IR77, leading them to question what it is about this particular robot that so desperately wants to escape.”
Should the PromoBot continue to increase its own abilities and lash out against its own creators, we are left with the very frightening possibilities that movies like The Terminator have been warning us about for decades.

Donald Trump has been picking up support in some strange places, but the latest additions to his crew of backers is pretty surprising.
Two elected officials in Camden, New Jersey have distanced themselves from the democratic party in their heavily democratic city to support The Donald. For the men, the switch was a long time coming.
“Audubon Park Mayor Larry Pennock said he jumped the Democrat ship over two months ago to join Republicans and vote for Trump in New Jersey’s June 7 primary election, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer — describing his shift as “ideological.” Pennock told the outlet that he is in ‘lockstep’ when it comes to Republican Party policies, highlighting his positions on the economy, national security, and immigration.
“The change is one that Pennock said has mulled over for years, but he was persuaded by Trump’s run, he told the Inquirer. The formerly 40-year Democrat said he wasn’t concerned about a potential 2018 re-election bid when asked and hopes that ‘people will respect me for being honest both with myself and with them.’
“Audubon Park formerly Democrat Councilman John Carpinelli also re-registered as a Republican. The now lone Republican on the council pointed out to the Inquirer the high level of ‘dissatisfaction’ among Democrats in Camden County.
“Pennock and Carpinelli made the announcement of their new Republican Party registrations on Thursday.”
This comes as great news for The Donald as he faces an increasingly angry and vitriolic republican party, some of whom have vowed to stop him at all costs.
Republican pundit George Will has decided that he cannot support the GOP this election.
The backlash over the Donald Trump Nomination is far from over, and now a popular Fox News contributor is ditching the republican party.
George Will has decided that he will change his voter registration from “republican” to the vague “unaffiliated” now that Donald Trump is gaining some support from the GOP. Will’s last straw was when House Speaker Paul Ryan limped into The Donald’s camp saying that he’d vote for the businessman turned politician.
“Will, whose column is published by The Washington Post, told that paper Saturday that he changed his Maryland voter registration from Republican to “unaffiliated” earlier this month after House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said he would vote for the real estate mogul.
“The website PJ Media reported that Will discussed his decision during an event Friday for the conservative group the Federalist Society.
“‘This is not my party,’ Will said in a speech.
“Will has been a persistent critic of Trump and recently wrote a column urging Republican donors to ‘save their party by not aiding its nominee.’”
George Will is merely the latest in a large list of GOP stalwarts who are publicly condemning the party’s nomination of the controversial candidate.
Trump believes himself to be the cure for the Texit movement.
As Brexit Fever is sweeping the globe, Texas has once again put their own secession on the table. Donald Trump has other ideas for the state.
Claiming that Trump’s own popularity would nullify the habitually independent state’s will, the republican nominee made it known during a speech in Scotland that Texas would never leave the union based solely on his own charisma.
“Donald Trump splashed cold water Saturday on renewed calls by U.S. secessionists for Texas to break away from America in the wake of Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.
“’Texas will never do that, because Texas loves me,’ the presumptive Republican presidential nominee told reporters, while touring his golf resorts in Scotland.
“So-called Texas nationalists, who for years have waged a quixotic campaign to secede, swiftly seized on Thursday’s Brexit decision to demand a similar referendum, only on Texas ‘independence.’ In the spirit of the vote, supporters like Texas Nationalist Movement leader Daniel Miller called for “Texit” — a hashtag trending Friday on Twitter.
“The secessionists have long faced setbacks at every level of government.
“The White House, in response to a petition, said three years ago that Texas simply cannot leave the union.”
Trump has continually campaigned on the idea that he himself would be able to cure what ails much of the country just because, well, he’s Donald Trump and people like him.
