Progressive Leftists can’t stop losing because they care more for ideological purity than they do for actual winning, according to David Leonhardt in the New York Times. In the wake of the apparent collapse of Bernie Sanders’ democratic-socialist campaign, are Americans “profoundly Progressive” but just haven’t found a candidate who inspires them? Or are they much more centrist than the panjandrums of statism proclaim?
Stephen Green brings us a grab bag of top (and bottom) headlines, ambushing Bill Whittle and Scott Ott with questions, including:– Why The New York Times calls U.S. troops “tragically” good.– Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have a point when she quips that Joe Biden is so conservative they’d be in different parties in any other country? […]
Hillary Clinton’s catty remarks about Tulsi Gabbard being a Russian agent lead Powerlineblog’s John Hinderaker to question whether she’s drunk podcasting. Bill Whittle considers a more troubling diagnosis — she’s literally a psychopath.
An objective observer would think the Democrat presidential candidates are committing electoral suicide after their performances in recent debates. On guns, climate, immigration, health care and more, they’ve staked out extreme Progressive positions which will dog their eventual nominee in the general election contest. Will even one candidate get off the Left-wing crazy train before it goes completely off the rails?
Democrat Presidential candidate Rep. Beto O’Rourke drew a huge cheer at the last debate when he said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47…” Let’s imagine that the Texas lawmaker miraculously gets to the White House and attempts to keep that promise. Bill Whittle, Scott Ott and Stephen Green game it out.
National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre comes under fire for lavish spending on his own luxurious lifestyle, and board Members depart. Is there a reasonable, work-related justification, for LaPierre’s $5 million mansion? What happens when a principle-based organization grants unchecked authority to a single individual?
In the wake of mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, as Republicans move toward backing a national “red flag” law to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill, Bill Whittle Now asks “who decides?” What if the new law targets you, and the federal government comes to take your guns away? Before your representative votes, he should watch this video.
Why would the NRA fight against a Texas law to spend $1 million on a campaign designed to promote safe gun storage? And how is it possible that the National Rifle Association lost a battle…against Republicans? Bill Whittle analyzes the risks inherent in the proposed new law.
Billionaire Mark Cuban solves the 2nd Amendment debate with a little editing. Your federal government guarantees your right to keep and bear arms, while your state regulates that gun ownership. What could be wrong with a solution that respects our federated republican form of government, and guarantees your right to own a gun?
Former Supreme Court Associate Justice John Paul Stevens says the worst decision of his life was the court’s DC v. Heller ruling, which recognized the individual right to keep and bear arms. Of course, Stevens voted with the minority in Heller. In a new book, he says he’s still convinced the framers of the Constitution and Bill of Rights meant to protect gun rights only for use in organized militias. Bill Whittle mansplains to Stevens the meaning of a simple English sentence known as the 2nd Amendment.
President Trump’s nominee to run the Office of Violence Against Women in the Department of Justice is unqualified, say some activists, because she advocates arming abused women for self-defense. If a woman buys a gun, they say, the abusive man is more likely to use it on her. What will really save women’s lives?
Watching the New Zealand massacre through the eyes of the shooter gave Firewall host Bill Whittle a look into the abyss that exists between offhanded tweets and the actual insanity of mass murder.
AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, facial recognition systems, RFID tracking chips and other high-tech gear form the first line of defense against mass shootings in Texas City, Texas, schools. The district hired a former Secret Service agent to run security after the Santa Fe school shooting, and local voters approved a $6.5 million bond issue to pay for it. But how much is too much when it comes to school security?
Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-CA, wants to take your AR-15. When a veteran on Twitter tells him that would start a war, the Congressman threatens him with nuclear consequences. This, from a guy with his eye on the White House. Stephen Green, Bill Whittle and Scott Ott, mansplain him regarding the right to keep and bear […]
A Black security guard stops a shooter at a night club, undoubtedly saving lives. Police arrive and shoot him dead. Do conservatives really want inner-city folks armed for their own safety, or does that simply paint another target on them? Is the 2nd Amendment color blind, or do parents now need to have “the talk” […]
