Did Administration Risk National Security To Help Out Hollywood?
By Hope Hodge

With reports that a top Defense Department official leaked sensitive and restricted information to Hollywood filmmakers to assist in the creation of upcoming blockbuster Zero Dark Thirty, a potential candidate for head of the CIA may find himself facing criminal charges instead.

Dear Conservatives,

If you and I can hold the statists off for just eleven days - until their outrageous FISA scheme expires on December 30 - you and I can score a major victory for freedom

But time is running out, so I'm counting on you to act IMMEDIATELY. 

Here's a quick video RANDPAC staff put together on why this is so important. I hope you'll take a moment to watch it and then sign the Fourth Amendment Protection Petition I've made up for you


The truth is, under President Obama, the surveillance state is expanding at an alarming rate to the point where virtually every man, woman and child in the country is under government surveillance.

Dec 19, 2012 11:16 am

Harold, Texas started the Guardian Plan back in 2007 to allow teachers to carry concealed weapons. Superintendent David Thweatt says that the school personnel considers themselves the first responders, and they want to be there to protect their children. Of course, they are getting a lot of attention now: Related posts: Gov. Rick Perry: Let [...]

Let’s Be Honest – Medicare Is Insolvent And Doctors Soon Won’t Accept It

Dec 19, 2012 11:50 am

Now that campaigning is finished, it is incumbent on our elected government to face up to Medicare’s problems and implement thoughtful solutions. Pretending that Medicare is financially solvent while ignoring the facts about the declining acceptance of Medicare and the future of health care access for seniors under the ACA is worse than misguided policy, [...]

US taxpayers spent a staggering $1.4 Billion (yes, with a B) on the Obamas, according to author Robert Keith Gray in his new book PRESIDENTIAL PERKS GONE ROYAL! Compare that to only $57.8 million the Brits shelled out for their royals, and you have to ask what is going on with President Obama.  Now word comes [...]

Obama administration, Congress quietly let school security funds lapse

Submitted by: Donald Hank

Before Connecticut tragedy, Obama's administration eliminated emergency preparedness program, let school violence prevention programs lapse

UPDATED 23:43 PM EST, December 14, 2012 | By John Solomon and Kimberly Dvorak

Why It Matters: 
Politicians across the country are vowing to do more to prevent school shooting tragedies like the one that unfolded Friday in Newtown, Conn. But over the last few years, the Obama administration and Congress allowed funding for several school safety initiatives to lapse.
Beneath the expressions of grief, sorrow and disbelief over the Connecticut school massacre lies an uneasy truth in Washington: over the last few years the Obama administration and Congress quietly let federal funding for several key school security programs lapse in the name of budget savings.    (but could NOT even pass a budget as mandated by law)

The Washington Post has run three stories in the last few days on the high unemployment rateamong black workers, and only one makes even passing reference to immigrant competition. As context, my colleague Steve Camarota has just published a detailed look at unemployment, breaking out subgroups in a way that BLS doesn't, and he found that unemployment amongnative-born black Americans is roughly double that for immigrants. And remember, people are only counted as "unemployed" if they're actually looking for work, so this isn't a matter of idleness. (Cato Institute open-borders gadfly Alex Nowrasteh has graced the report with high praise: "This report is not as egregiously and offensively wrong as usual." Practically an endorsement!)
Anyway, Michael Gerson's column starts off with an unexpectedly sound observation, identifying "the greatest single threat to the unity of America: the vast, increasing segregation of young, African American men and boys from the promise of their country." He lists a number of possible avenues to address this problem:



I want to start by saying thank you for all of your heartfelt feedback on my Friday email and appearance on Ralston Reports. Out of respect for the families in Newtown, along with the people who are suffering here in Las Vegas with the Excalibur tragedy, I don't want to participate in making this tragedy any more politicized than it already is. I will rejoin the conversation following the holiday season in the days preceding the session.  

Yesterday the Clark County Commission selected Lesley Cohen to fill the vacant Assembly District 29 seat. I would like to welcome Lesley, and I look forward to working with her at the Legislature.  

I have been hard at work these last few weeks preparing my Bill Draft Requests (BDRs) with the latest submitted just over a week ago as well as learning about the BDRs that have been submitted by my peers in both houses. You can see a full list on the Nevada Legislature website. The descriptions don't give a lot of information; however, legislators are hard at work on the full text that goes with them that will be available when the BDRs become bills in February.


Gun control that works
Robert A. Hall
(This column was originally published in the Camden County, NJ Courier Post on August 20, 1999.)

    “Oh, God, not again,” I thought as I watched strings of frightened children being led from that Jewish Community Center. A maniac with a gun. Innocent people—including kids—dead or wounded. And politicians ripping each other over “gun control,” using this hot-button issue to gain votes.
    A significant portion of the American public believes they have a right to own a gun for hunting or self-protection. Let there be a violent crime in a neighborhood, or an escaped murderer, and gun sales jump. There’s research showing many crimes are prevented because of gun ownership.
    And politicians who draw support from gun owners need the issue to get votes.
    There’s also a significant chunk of the public who believes all guns should be outlawed or that there should be more gun control—though what form it should take depends on what kind of gun was used in the latest outrage. There’s also research showing that easy access to guns increases gun violence.
    And politicians who draw support from anti-gun folks need the issue to get votes.
    With the public sharply divided, and politicians on both sides benefiting from keeping the issue hot, is there any hope? Would any “gun control” legislation resolve the issue?

Today's hot NEWS for fed-up, Pro-USA Americans.
From:   To: The NationalMiddleClassNetwork & TeaParties...These columns  are not necessarily our views; more in fairness to both sides. So, please keep the feedback coming. Thanks. Also, as many know, we are having IP issues. So, if you've received this NewsMail in error or wish to be removed, please let us know. So far, those so requesting since this inception is virtually zero. Thanks again

First, Got a question for you:  Haven't found a comfortable answer yet.  We too have had it with cable ("Hundreds of channels and nothing on tv" for which we pay and the cable company makes money from us and advertisers declaring us as part of their audience).
   Anyway, we plan to start by dumping the cable (box) on one of our two TVs and plugging the cable into the TV (which cable companies are going to block soon by scrambiling the broadcast channels too so you must get a pay-for box...a main reason we plan to do the dump.  When that happens, we will get an antenna to that set).
  With that box dump and direct plug, we also plan to get a ROKU...for that set.
So, our questions are:
1) How to set it up so we can record from the tv ("broadcast channels") when away?
2) What's the best antenna (the tv is not analog; is a converter box still needed if to record?)  Is it best to put a tv tuner between the antenna and recording device?
3) What's your take on ROKU?...and where can we find the list of 600 channels it says it has?
*****What overall suggestions would you have in this?  THX.

RedState Briefing 12/19/2012

Morning Briefing
For December 19, 2012
1.  Bull----
An old joke, long attributed to Winston Churchill goes like this. Churchill asked a famous British socialite, “Madam, would you sleep with me for five million pounds?”

“My goodness, Mr. Churchill. Well, I suppose we would have to discuss terms, of course,” the socialite replied.

Churchill then asked, “Would you sleep with me for five pounds?” at which the socialite angrily responded, “Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?”

Winston Churchill calmly replied, “Madam, we’ve already established that. Now we are haggling about the price.”
