The Iowa House has just voted to reverse a law that made it illegal to use or possess a gun silencer or suppressor. The bill passed 82 – 16 and would allow gun owners across the state to make use of the hearing-saving devices that many have called a much needed tool to prevent hearing loss in regular shooters.

Last year, after Connecticut lawmakers passed some of the most restrictive gun control measures in the country, John Cinque issued a warning to these lawmakers, saying that he would not comply with their attempts to force him to register his “high capacity” magazines and semi-automatic firearms. In a recent video interview with Connecticut gubernatorial candidate Joe Viconti, Cinque revealed a very disturbing remark that a Connecticut police officer made to him.

He is the co-founder of an anti-gun group that has been a proud supporter of Obamacare which has been dubbed “Docs vs. Glocks”. 36-year-old Vivek Murthy co-founded “Doctors for Obama in 2008″ which changed it’s name to “Doctor’s for America” to seem less partisan and more patriotic. Murthy wants doctors to be required to ask patients (children and adults) about guns in their home. And of course this information would be stored on file and… Continue Reading…

Networks Swoon Over President’s Fake Interview to Push ObamaCare
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows dutifully touted a fake interview President Obama conducted with comedian Zach Galifianakis designed to help the commander-in-chief hock ObamaCare to young people. On NBC’s Today, social media co-host Carson Daly gushed: "It’s over six minutes long…all of it is really, really funny….You know, the First Lady’s been everywhere showing her comedy chops and it’s been great. But boy, the President, he is amazing in this. So check that out this morning if you have time." Later in the show’s 9 a.m. ET hour, weatherman Al Roker praised Obama’s comedic genius: "It’s about the delivery and the President shows he’s got the comedy chops." Co-host Tamron Hall declared: "Yes, yes. Which he shows at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner every year." Co-host Willie Geist explained: "It was part of a – this concerted effort to promote the Affordable Care Act. Because they get into that and the President’s allowed to explain it."
Networks Continue Touting White House’s Plug for ObamaCare, Ignore Enrollment Shortfall
On Tuesday evening, the networks continued relaying the White House’s plea to young voters to sign up for ObamaCare, touting President Obama’s mock interview with comedian Zach Galifianakis where Obama plugged for his own health care law. ABC’s Diane Sawyer called it a "bold move" and both CBS and NBC hailed the interview as a success. CBS’s Scott Pelley said, "it worked. The video became the number one reason people visited HealthCare.gov today." The networks ignored, however, the bad news of the day for the law, that enrollment numbers for young people are still far below what is needed. FNC’s Bret Baier led Tuesday’s Special Report with the poor numbers ABC and NBC skipped.
Nets Uncritically Hype Dem ‘All-Nighter’ on Climate Change, Mocked Cruz’s ‘Long-Winded’ Protest
ABC, CBS and NBC on Tuesday morning uncritically hyped an extended effort by Senate Democrats as an "all-night marathon" to raise awareness on climate change. Yet, these same networks mocked a similar effort by Ted Cruz in fall of 2013 as a "bizarre," "long-winded protest." Today’s Natalie Morales explained, "The dusk to dawn talk-a-thon was expected to go about 15 hours." She noted that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called global warming action a "question of our own survival." It was only CBS This Morning co-anchor Norah O’Donnell who pointed out that there "are no plans to bring a climate bill to the Senate floor this year." If no legislation is planned, how does this warrant network coverage?
NBC Gushes Over ‘Sorority House’ of Democratic Congresswomen
In fawning puff piece aired on Tuesday’s NBC Today, correspondent Craig Melvin was delighted by three Democratic congresswoman – including left-wing bomb-thrower and DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz – sharing a Washington D.C. townhouse when Congress is in session: "For Florida’s Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Alabama’s Terri Sewell, and New York’s Carolyn Maloney, it’s all business during the day. They’re congresswomen. Oh, but by night….This is like a sorority house."Schultz declared: "It’s a sisterhood, for sure." Melvin observed that New York Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney "is less a house mother and more the landlord." Maloney explained: "Well, when I was first elected, I lived alone….I was used to a husband and two children and a cat and pandemonium, chaos at home. So I decided to buy a house and fill it up with friends, which is exactly what I did."
NBC Punts on Joe McGinniss’ Death; Hyped Palin-Bashing Book in 2011
CNN’s New Day on Tuesday devoted a 23-second news brief to the death of author Joe McGinniss on Monday, noting that "McGinniss made headlines again in 2010, when he moved next door to Sarah Palin’s Alaska home in order to research his book, ‘The Rogue.’ Palin threatened to sue him, but never did." However, Tuesday’s Today on NBC, which touted their interview of McGinnis in September 2011 by hyping his supposed "stunning allegations made about Sarah Palin in a bombshell book," omitted his passing. Anchor Savannah Guthrie gave the writer a platform during the segment to forward his unsubstantiated claims about the former Alaska governor.
Take an inside look
For reading & meditation: 1 Corinthians 11:27-34
"A man ought to examine himself ‘" (v.28)
From what we have seen over the past few days, it is clear that the psalmist has come to the place where his views have changed. He sees that God is ruling over human affairs and that the ungodly are not in such an enviable situation after all. We come now to see that he was not only put right in his thinking about the ungodly and about God, but he was also put right about himself: "When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered, I was senseless and ignorant: I was a brute beast before you" (Psa. 73:21-22). What a different view he has of himself now compared to previously, when he so evidently felt very sorry for himself: "Surely in vain have I kept my heart pure; in vain have I washed my hands in innocence" (v.13). Outside the sanctuary, he felt full of self-pity; inside the sanctuary, he had an entirely different view of himself. This is a moment when the psalmist honestly faces himself – something that is very difficult to do. Most of us don’t mind working our way through our problems, but the moment we get relief, we want to stop right there. We do not go on to face up to what caused us to come to the wrong conclusions in the first place. This is why we keep going through the same problems over and over again – we fail to take an inside look. A schoolteacher claimed to have twenty-five years of experience, but her head teacher said of her: "She has just one year of experience twenty-five times." She worked long but learned little.
Father, I see why it is that so often I go through the same problems over and over again – I stop short of learning why they happened in the first place. Help me today to think through why it is that I get so tied up. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
For further study:
1 Chronicles 28:1-10; Jeremiah 17:10; Psalms 44:20-21
1. What did David reflect to Solomon?
2. What question did the Lord ask?
The Cost of Unbelief
"And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him" (Heb 11:5-6).
How is your faith quotient? On a scale of 1 to 10 where would you rank yourself? Everyday, I marvel at the faith most of us exercise without even thinking about it.
We drive our cars 60-70 miles per hour with an oncoming car doing the same with only a white line and six to eight feet separating us. We place our faith that every car will not cross into our lane. We fly on airplanes that take us over oceans, trusting the pilots with our very lives. We ride on thrilling amusement rides that take us several stories into the air and travel fifty to seventy miles per hour down a winding slope. We trust the operators of that ride with our own mortality.
There is a great irony in the fact that we can place our faith in such things but cannot place our faith in the hands of our Creator. God got angry with one of his priests named Zechariah when he questioned his angelic messenger about his wife becoming pregnant with John the Baptist.
"Zechariah asked the angel, ‘How can I be sure of this? I am an old man and my wife is well along in years.’ The angel answered, ‘I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news. And now you will be silent and not able to speak until the day this happens, because you did not believe my words, which will come true at their proper time’" (Luke 1:8-20).
Zechariah was struck mute because of his unbelief for nine months until the birth of John the Baptist. What consequence have you suffered from a lack of faith? Jesus is always looking for faith on the earth. Is there an area in your life where you have not been able to trust God? Why not repent of your unbelief and place your faith totally in His hands today.
