SHOCKER: Steve Bannon Says an Increasingly Unhinged Trump Risks Not Making it a Full Term

I believe this has happened. Trump will have to send out Steve Bannon to give a press briefing, in order to dispute this, but if this is true, it’s not like Bannon didn’t warn him. According to a Vanity Fair report, President Trump is unraveling at a rapid rate. Basically, everything that Senator

Mitch McConnell Vows to Steamroller Judicial Nominees Through the Senate Like He Repealed ObamaCare

The Trump Administration Gets a Small Win on the Travel Ban

One

Ben Affleck Reviles Republican Artists but Sex Fiends Just Fine

Remember that one time Ben Affleck told a Playboy Magazine interviewer that he can’t stand watching Republican actors on screen? Let’s refresh our memories. “When I watch a guy I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him, or we would have

BREAKING: Boy Scouts Announces They’ll Start Accepting Girls

(Jake May/The Flint Journal – via AP) Of all the dumb and divisive nonsensical things to do. NBC News reports the Boy Scouts of America will start accepting girl scouts. No, not Girl Scouts.

New Poll Showing Broad Support For Gun Control And Why It Doesn’t Matter

Politico released the details on a new poll regarding the public’s feelings on gun control. For many gun rights activists, it’s not welcome news either.

Here’s What Happened When a Drunk Driver Pulled a Gun on a Police Officer

Suburban GOP Group Continues Planned Gun Raffle Fundraiser

The Republican Party is, ostensibly, the pro-gun political party. Democrats gladly welcome every gun grabber with a checkbook, the Republicans go the opposite direction. This is simply the natural order of things. In fact, that’s the reason why it’s not surprising to learn that a Lake County Republicans were planning a

Jay Caruso Takes CNN’s Chris Cillizza To The Woodshed Over Gun Debate Terminology

Leftists, especially if they work for CNN, don’t know what they’re talking about. This was amply illustrated previously here at Bearing Arms. However, there’s a lot of derp flying over the airwaves from CNN, and it all warrants being slapped down early and often. CNN personality Chris Cillizza opined on the gun

CNN Host Illustrates How Little Media Understand Gun Laws

Despite the plain text of the Second Amendment, there are a whole lot of laws on the books regarding guns. That’s something most who consider themselves pro-gun control on a casual level never really understand. They hear about “gun show loopholes” and talking points about how it’s more difficult to

Media Begging Us For Conspiracy Theories on Las Vegas

Now the media are just taunting us with their tall tales about Stephen Paddock, the alleged Las Vegas shooter. Reputedly serious news organizations are claiming that he made a living playing video poker. That’s like claiming someone made a living smoking crack. The media are either doing PR for the gambling

Power and Hypocrisy in Tinsel Town and the Media

Growing up in Southern California, and doing my undergraduate work at the University of California, Los Angles (UCLA), I always have been surrounded by the entertainment industry. I have friends “in the business,” including actors, writers, directors and those in back-office production roles. The people I know in the industry either

Global Events, Trump Rhetoric Boost Defense ETF

A constant barrage of geopolitical tensions coupled with the forceful rhetoric of President Trump has sent defense stocks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), such as the iShares U.S. Aerospace and Defense ETF (ITA), soaring.
