The Conservative Tribune has frequently written about individual states passing bills to nullify federal gun control laws.
Now enter GOP Sen. Mike Lee, who aspires to once and for all transcend the state boundaries and implement a nationwide ban on all future federal gun control legislation.
Lee proposes doing so via an amendment that, if passed, would make it so that any future gun-control legislation would need the support of “two-thirds of senators” to become law. The amendment would Read more [...]
On Thursday, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) signed into law, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (SB 101), which protects any privately-owned business or individual which refuses service based on the owner’s religious beliefs.
Pence told reporters:
Today I signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, because I support the freedom of religion for every Hoosier of every faith. The Constitution of the United States and the Indiana Constitution both provide strong recognition of the freedom of Read more [...]
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest balked when asked Sunday how the Indiana religious freedom law opposed by President Barack Obama differs from a similar law Obama voted for when he was a state senator in Illinois.
Earnest appeared on ABC's "This Week" immediately following Indiana's Republican Gov. Mike Pence on Sunday and was asked about the issue.
"If you have to go back two decades to try to justify something that you're doing today, it may raise questions," Earnest told host George Read more [...]
I’m the first to admit that I’m a bit slow. My conservative and liberal friends both tend to make fun of me for being naïve or idealistic. I’m not “pragmatic” enough for some conservatives, and I’m too trusting for others, but I truly believe the things I say I believe. One of those naïve beliefs usually has to do with liberals… I happen to think that many liberals really do love our country and only want what is best for our people. They just have the worst ideas on how to accomplish Read more [...]
No one must be permitted to decide with whom they do business, so two mayors tell city employees they must ban Indiana from their travel.
Indiana’s state affirmation of the First Amendment continues to be attacked as a bill legalizing “discrimination.”
I guess this means that the people who attack Indiana in this inaccurate way must really hate discrimination. They must believe that you must never refuse to do business with someone or some group on the basis of any moral problems you Read more [...]
An Iranian journalist writing about the nuclear negotiations between the United States and Iran has defected. In an interview Amir Hossein Motaghi, has some harsh words for his native Iran. He also has a damning indictment of America's role in the nuclear negotiations.
“The U.S. negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran’s behalf with other members of the 5+1 countries and convince them of a deal," Motaghi told a TV station after just defecting from the Iranian delegation while abroad Read more [...]
Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) who is leading the investigation into the Benghazi fiasco confirmed to America today that Hillary Clinton is indeed a slimy and likely criminal malcontent. It seems that Mrs. Clinton no longer has any of the emails she sent or received during her time as Secretary of State, but don't worry, unlike the folks at the IRS her computer didn't crash...
No, Hillary lost her emails the good ol' fashioned way. She DELETED them.
ALL OF THEM.
And she did this AFTER the Read more [...]
Liberals have made everything about race. This latest example is beyond comprehension. Most often charges of racism are made when a liberal is losing the debate. While it’s a personal attack – an ad hominem – it’s also a red herring, a way to divert attention away from the substance of an argument.
Here's the latest, not to be the last, example:
“During a heated debate over an Indiana ‘religious freedom’ bill, a Democratic representative took the opportunity to accuse the child Read more [...]
An examination of the server that housed the personal email account that Hillary Rodham Clinton used exclusively when she was secretary of state showed that there are no copies of any emails she sent during her time in office, her lawyer told a congressional committee on Friday.
After her representatives determined which emails were government-related and which were private, a setting on the account was changed to retain only emails sent in the previous 60 days, her lawyer, David Kendall, said. Read more [...]
“I’ve got something on the tip of my tongue that I believe to be absolutely accurate,” said Mark Levin, “and I’m really weighing whether to say it or not.”
“I’m gonna say it,” Levin said. “Barack Obama, as a result of this (Obama administration declassifying documents revealing Israel’s nuclear program), including arming up the Islamonazis in Tehran, is the greatest threat the Jews face, not in this country but in Israel, since the 1930s. Do you agree with me Mr. Producer?”
“He’s Read more [...]
How do we measure success or failure in our counterterrorism operations?
We don’t know that U.S. drone strikes and other activities made Yemen more politically unstable or merely failed to save the contry. But in order to be able to claim that the Administration’s campaigns there have been successful, the Administration needs to be able to demonstrate to us that they at least understand the situation in Yemen.
Does this description from CNS News show us an Administration that knew what Read more [...]
