All American Blogger presents an intriguing scenario--what would happen if John McCain picked a blue dog Democrat as a running mate?:

John Lott points out that the terrorist who attacked the Israeli seminary Thursday was stopped by an armed student:

Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs does the best job of anyone I know in covering the attacks by Islamic extremists. She has the following two highly informative posts:

Michelle Malkin has all the news on the explosion at Times Square on Thursday, just outside the military recruiting station:

Malkin also reports that the city of Berkeley, California is still engaging in anti-American activity with regard to the military recruitment office there:

And for a short refresher on the background of the Berkeley anti-military flap, click here:

Nicki tells us why most voters should not vote. Apparently she shares my dim view of the U.S. electorate. The reason for the ignorance is the dumbing down of the population over the past 40 years as opposed to the years prior to the liberal propagandizing:

Say Uncle says that the NRA has put up a neat web page featuring ALL pertinent info on D.C. vs. Heller, including all of the filed briefs:

The Volokh Conspiracy informs us of the latest travesty committed by Harvard U. in designating certain hours in the gym as 'women only' in order to accommodate a handful of Muslim women. Would they do the same, say, for men who do not wish to exercise with homosexuals? Read the whole outrage here:

Volokh also has the follow-up to the story of the university employee that was disciplined because he 'read the wrong kind of reading material':

The MUST-read of the day is posted by Tam at A View from the Porch:

And for all of you William F. Buckley, Jr. fans, there are two articles worth your time. This one is entitled, 'What Would WFB Do?':

And this one was penned by Buckley himself, written as only he could, concerning the death of his beloved Mother in 1985:

Michelle Malkin is reporting ominous news for conservative bloggers in Canada:

John Lott reports that the Democrats are shouting fraud at each other:

Nicki has some rather sharply-worded comments on the push in Congress to pass gun microstamping, ala California. I like that woman:

Sebastian has a link to an article in the press about Red's Trading Post's day in court on Tuesday:

Red's has more info:

Say Uncle has an update on Heller:

Squeaky has an interesting shooting range report featuring herself and a couple of other characters you may well recognize from the blogosphere:

Bitter has some good pro-gun stuff today that is worth reading:

You gotta see this! I like Breda's strategy. And why not? After all, Democrats and Independents crossed over and gave us McCain:

The Volokh Conspiracy has some new podcasts and a new article on gun issues:

If ever there were any doubt that academia has been seized by Commie-Nazis, this should dispel all doubt. Now they are telling their employees what they can and cannot read!:

Second Amendment News Roundup for 3/5/08

Focusing on guns and politics, here is today's Second Amendment News Roundup:

As we predicted last summer right here, once Americans began to take a close look at Obama's record and views, his star would begin to fade. We see this happening on Tuesday night as Clinton wins Ohio and has a good chance of winning Texas. Fox News has the story:

In related news concerning last night's Super Tuesday II, Mike McCarville reports that John McCain has clinched the GOP nomination and Mike Huckabee has withdrawn from the race:

John Lott reports that the founder of The Weather Channel states that the 'global warming crisis' is a hoax. He has more info on the matter here:

Gun Law News reports that Hillary has called for more bans on so-called 'assault weapons.' Remember, her record on gun control is almost as frightening as Obama's:

Say Uncle has more on Clinton's views on guns, and it is much worse than just assault weapons bans:

Snow Flakes in Hell was interviewed by Ace, and the entire thing can be found here by clicking on the link provided by Sebastian:

Bitter points out that Barack Obama got a bit hot under the collar when he was questioned by the Press as most candidates are. As most of us have noticed, the media, as well as many Americans, fall down and worship him when he merely utters the word 'change.' The media essentially have given him a pass in the midst of their worshipful awe. Well, that is about to 'change':

Traction Control alerts us to USA Today's...errrr...'objective' news reporting on gun bans in National Parks:

Armed and Safe has an excellent read on the 'mental health' disqualification to owning a gun, as practiced in California:

JR blogs about the ominous 'double-whammy' that puts gun owners in a bind:

Jane Blackwell/Cheerleader Scandal Update

Law enforcement officials in Ware Shoals, South Carolina dropped all charges against former Ware Shoals High School principal Jane Blackwell on Monday.

Blackwell had been charged last year with obstruction and lying to police in an investigation surrounding a sex scandal that allegedly involved cheerleaders and a former employee at the school.

A gag order on news reports about that case is still in effect.

For more on Monday's news about Blackwell, click here:

Too Important To Pass Up

Every now and then an article or editorial comes our way that simply begs promotion. Such an editorial is found today at The War on Guns.

David Codrea presents a guest editorial by a writer who has a highly accurate assessment of the state of the citizenry in America today, entitled 'Tribe of the Timid.' If this editorial doesn't move you to action, then nothing will.

You may ask, 'But what can I do?'

First, you can forward that editorial to as many in your sphere of influence as possible. Second, you can become what I call a 'moonlight activist,' that is, in your free time do something concrete to help save your country, such as write letters to the editor, contact your representatives both at the state and federal level, and so forth.

And then, get involved if you are physically able to do so. Join a grassroots organization of like-minded persons who believe in the same ideals of liberty that you do.

Here is the link to the editorial:

Second Amendment News Roundup for 3/3/08

Focusing on guns and politics, here is today's Second Amendment News Roundup:

The Volokh Conspiracy has an excellent, informative read on Obama and Jewish voters:

Can you imagine armed Canadian troops joining the U.S. military in squelching civil AMERICA? Don't look now, but the anti-gun crowd may well have such a plan:

Red's Trading Post wants to know what John McCain thinks of the ATF since the latest shenanigans of the jackbooted thugs happened in Arizona...also, the no. of firearms dealers in AZ has dropped 75% in recent years:

Of Arms and the Law says that trying to figure out who is better on gun rights between Obama and Clinton is like trying to figure out who was better on freedom of expression between Hitler and Stalin. Read the whole thing here:

JR at a Keyboard and a .45 has some good news to share about the Lone Star Friends of the NRA dinner over the weekend in Texas:

Pam Geller at Atlas Shrugs is one of the most effective Jewish voices against the Jihad in the world. She is now facing a potential legal mess for her blog over utilizing her freedom of speech in taking to task a Rabbi who supports HAMAS, of all things!:

Israel on the Precipice

While we Americans are consumed and distracted by politics, particularly the politics of one dangerous and untested commodity by the name of Barack Obama, Israel, America's most important strategic ally, stands on the precipice, dangerously close to total destruction.

Israel's current leaders are the most incompetent in the history of the nation and are curiously too eager to give away large portions of land to Muslim interests in the name of 'peace.'

It seems that they are even willing to give away half of Jerusalem.

The so-called 'Palestinians' have no intention of being placated. They want the whole enchilada. They do not believe Israel has a right to exist, although Arab/Muslim interests control 99.9% of the land-mass in that area of the world.

Thus, the whole fight is about that one .1% of the land in that area...interesting, isn't it, that 'Palestinians' begrudge the Jews even that!

Caroline Glick, one of the world's foremost authorities on Middle Eastern policy, Middle East Fellow at the Center for Security Policy in Washington, DC, and deputy managing editor of The Jerusalem Post, has this thought-provoking and disturbing article on the subject here:
