Christian Group Denied Access – School District Covers it Up

from One News Now:

Ky. schools cover-up denying Bible club access exposed

Good News ClubsA Christian legal group issued the Boone County School District (BCSD) an official warning last week that it is discriminating against an evangelical Bible organization by refusing it equal access to school facilities for a K–5 after-school Bible club.

Attorneys with Liberty Counsel sent school officials a demand letter arguing that the district’s facilities use policy is consistent with equal access laws, and therefore cannot be used to keep Child Evangelism Fellowship’s (CEF) after-school Good News Clubs from meeting on the campuses of Stevens Elementary School and Goodridge Elementary School.

All Emotion and No Reason in the Gun Control Argument

from the Daily Bell:

4 Complaints About Gun Owners Debunked

When tragedy strikes it is understandable that people get emotional. But they often forget that the media knows how to pull the heartstrings for nefarious reasons. If a media campaign looks coordinated, it probably is. We should never let the emotions they trigger override our logic, and threaten our safety.

And we shouldn’t let whole groups be punished for the crimes of individuals. Nothing that one person does can justify assaulting or stealing from an entirely different individual. That type of thinking is what leads to violence and prejudice against whole races, religions, and nationalities.

Here are four common knee-jerk reactions gun owners get, and the data to respond.

Do We Need an Intelligence Overhaul?

No, I’m not talking about the Democrat Party. I think it’s too late for that bunch. I’m of course referring to our federal intelligence services which have become highly politicized, appear to only be interested in protecting the aforementioned democrats, and it seems have become less competent since they’ve become politicized.

The Sandy Hook massacre not withstanding, three of the latest most high profile mass-shootings/bombings have the FBI’s bungling fingerprints all over them.

The Sandy Hook, Adam Lanza, school shooting was bungled by local authorities. They were warned of Lanza’s behavior and threats, and failed to pass it off to the FBI, or similar authority. Locals are not equipped or adept at investigating potential situations prior to them happening.

However, there appears to be a pattern forming in the FBI’s ability or want to follow leads prior to the tragedies occurring.

The FBI failed to keep track of the Boston bomber, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, after they suspected he had become radicalized. The FBI interviewed him in 2011 as a person with terrorist ties, thanks to a tip from Russian intelligence, but never followed up, even after he had several times visited a known radical Islamic Mosque in Dagestan. Dagestan is known to have Islamist training camps.

According to a local police official, a case file on Tsarnaev was then handed over to the FBI along with a request for further information. However, the FBI never replied. read more

Stunning – Lab Grown Kidneys

A stunning medical breakthrough has seen human kidney tissue capable of producing urine grown in the lab, in a world first.

Experts used stem cells to create mini-kidneys that were implanted into mice, with tests revealing they were able to filter and excrete waste.

The research will allow medical researchers to model kidney diseases using the new structures, advancing our understanding of a number of conditions.

It is also a key step in creating working kidneys for transplant, grown from a patient’s own tissue, a more realistic possibility in the future.

To the Left, All Guns are Automatic

from NewsBusters:

Katy Tur Still Doesn’t Know What ‘Semiautomatic’ Means

Every time the term ‘semiautomatic weapon’ hits the mainstream, it’s almost certain that at least one pundit will put their foot in their mouth wile talking about firearms. Thanks to Katy Tur, that trend has continued.

On Thursday, the MSNBC host went on a furious rant about the availability of semiautomatic weapons, presumably arguing in favor of further restrictions on that class of firearm. However, it soon became clear that she was doing what so many others in the media have before her: confusing single-action semiautomatic fire with full auto. Let Ms. Tur serve as a reminder that fake news does not have to be deliberate in order to fit the bill. read more

What Happened to Sean “Penny Plan” Hannity

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

This upsets me, but if we are to remain true to conservative ideals, we must be prepared to call those who appear to have abandoned them.

In early July, 2011, U.S. Representative for Florida’s 14th congressional district, Cornelius Harvey McGillicuddy (cool name), better known as Connie Mack IV, introduced a government spending plan called the Mack Penny Plan.

Mack served in Congress from 2004-2013.

More precisely, Mack Penny was a plan to cut government spending. Unlike virtually all things in government, his plan was quite simple. For every dollar of proposed spending, the plan would take away one penny of spending. So instead of the government spending that dollar, they would receive 99 cents to spend. See – simple.

In August of that year, FreedomWorks wrote that, “The Penny Plan would require Congress to cut just one penny out of each dollar it spends every year for six years. These gradual cuts over the next six years will balance the federal budget.”

If it were enacted it would have, “capped Overall Spending at 18 Percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Starting in Fiscal Year 2018, Reduce Overall Federal Spending by $7.5 trillion over the Next Ten Years, Would Balance the Federal Budget by 2019 and End Washington’s Unprecedented Spending Spree.” read more
