Ron Paul tweets about SEAL sniper’s death: ‘He who lives by the sword dies by the sword’

Ron Paul ✔ @RonPaul
"Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword." Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense"
Kyle and a friend were both killed by a veteran struggling with PTSD while working with him at a gun range on Saturday.
The former Marine, Eddie Ray Routh, turned his weapon on the other two men and shot them at close range, according to news accounts.
Kyle was the author of the best-selling “American Sniper,” which detailed his time as a record-holding SEAL sniper.
Paul has a long history of being opposed to American military intervention abroad.

Second Amendment Hypocrites
Post Date: 2013-02-04 14:22:35 by calcon
A recent poll conducted by the National Association of Chiefs of Police indicated that almost 64 percent of police commanders and sheriffs favor a law allowing private citizens to carry concealed firearms for protection. Almost 73 percent said that citizens should not be restricted from purchasing more than one weapon, and 96 percent say they believe criminals obtain firearms from illegal sources. Unfortunately most states - especially those called Blue States due to their Liberal-leanings - continue to prohibit private citizens from carrying concealed handguns. At the same time, there are outspoken opponents of gun ownership, such as Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Diane Feinstein ...

IRS: Cheapest Obamacare Plan Will Be $20,000 Per Family
Post Date: 2013-02-04 11:42:10 by CZ82
IRS: Cheapest Obamacare Plan Will Be $20,000 Per Family January 31, 2013 Matt Cover (CNSNews.com) In a final regulation issued Wednesday, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) assumed that under Obamacare the cheapest health insurance plan available in 2016 for a family will cost $20,000 for the year. Under Obamacare, Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty to the IRS. The IRS's assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the penalty they will need to pay the government if they do not buy a mandated health plan. The examples point to families ...
Universal background checks would strip 18-20 year olds of handgun rights
Post Date: 2013-02-04 09:27:11 by A K A Stone
Lost amidst the clamor for universal back ground checks are a lot of important details. One of those details, besides the issues of who will pay for universal background checks, and how will such checks be precluded from turning into a registration scheme, is the fact that simply making firearm background checks universal would have to effect of denying the right of 18-20 year olds to own a handgun, even in their home. In 2008 the US Supreme Court held in District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment guarantee[s] the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation. At issue in Heller was the District of Columbias statute which ...
Vast Oil Reserve May Now Be Within Reach, and Battle Heats Up
Post Date: 2013-02-04 09:21:20 by A K A Stone
FELLOWS, Calif. Secure in this states history and mythology, the venerable Midway-Sunset oil field near here keeps producing crude more than a century after Southern Californias oil boom. Many of its bobbing pump jacks are relatively short, a telltale sign of the shallowness of the wells and the ease of extracting their prize. But away from this forest of pump jacks on a flat, brown landscape, a road snakes up into nearby hills that are largely untouched save for a handful of exploratory wells pumping oil from depths many times those of Midway-Sunsets. These wells are tapping crude directly from what is called the Monterey Shale, which could represent the ...
TheDC’s Jamie Weinstein: 10 questions for Rand Paul’s foreign policy speech
Post Date: 2013-02-04 09:18:43 by A K A Stone
Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, who has not been coy about the fact he is considering a 2016 presidential run, will lay out his foreign policy vision in a speech at the Heritage Foundation on Tuesday. The speech, entitled Restoring the Founders Vision of Foreign Policy, comes on the heels of a trip by Paul to Israel, where he sought to demonstrate his pro-Israel bona fides. But questions still remain about what role Paul thinks America should play in the world, given his libertarian orientation. Hopefully his speech Tuesday will clearly delineate what a Paul presidency might look like in terms of foreign relations. To help him do that, below are 10 questions that it ...
Is Rand Paul Right About Benghazi?
Post Date: 2013-02-04 09:15:23 by A K A Stone
Hillary Clintons last hurrah at the State Department her appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Benghazi was outrageous in many respects, although the partisan fury of her Republican interrogators did more to obscure the facts than reveal them. However, perhaps their partisan zeal provoked her into the kind of response that hinted there was more to the attack than she could publicly admit. Under questioning by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin), she threw up her hands and declared: "With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided ...

Rev. Jesse Jackson Says Gun Supporters Are Domestic Terrorists (“Confederate ideology” reconstruction)

During an interview with the Wall Street Journal posted on January 30, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said anti-government people espousing what amounts to a Confederate ideology will engage in terrorist activities unless the government enacts draconian laws restricting the possession of firearms. Jackson said the Second Amendment provides these domestic terrorists with the ability to do something about how they feel in their effort to fight the government. The phrase Confederate ideology is shorthand for a political philosophy that stresses states rights (including nullification) and adherence to the Constitution. New York Rep. ...
