Tale of Russian Women: Pussy Riot Bedevils Putin; Mariia Butina Is His Red Sparrow

Pussy Riot, the all-female Russian punk-rock protest group, is a thorn in Vladimir Putin’s side. But their visage of feminist rebellion against Russia’s oppressive, male-dominated oligarchy, is a sharp contrast to their counterpart, Mariia Butina, the fetching Russian spy. The contrast was brought into sharp focus this week with Butina’s arrest for acting as a clandestine intermediary between the Kremlin and American officials, most notably those with the shadowy National Rifle Association (NRA)....

Jim Carrey Garish Portraits Continue to Define the Trump Political Milieu (See!)

Jim Carrey portrays the president as the Joker from Batman in a new series of garish portraits that capture the Trump political milieu and all of its unsavory dealings. In the latest series of art works, Oliver North, the new president of the National Rifle Association (NRA)is portrayed as serpent in front of an NRA logo oozing blood....

NRA Takes Low Road With Ridicule, Misinformation as Kids March for Life

While protests against gun violence swept across the nation and the world yesterday, the National Rifle Association was firing back with a steady barrage of ridicule, misinformation and conspiracy theories in an attempt to shore up their base. As the kids made impassioned speeches for greater gun control and a ban on assault weapons, Dan Bongino, an NRA commentator was blaming the march on Planned Parenthood and “these far-left groups.”...

Dana Loesch and Myth of the NRA; See Her Most Vile Attack on America Yet

Dana Loesch the vitriolic spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association, has launched another vile attack on American institutions that truly safeguard our liberty, but the mighty organization she claims to represent is a myth, according to tax documents and other sources.

Wayne LaPierre Must Go; NRA Must Return to Roots as Boycott Grows

Wayne LaPierre, the controversial chief executive of the National Rifle Association (NRA), has driven the gun group off the rails deep into alt-right politics and must resign for the good of the organization, so it can return to its roots as an advocate for gun owners. LaPierre has increasingly politicized the NRA during his 17-year tenure as chief executive and executive vice president. In the process he’s distorted its message, bullied Congress and turned the nation into a free fire zone, where almost anybody can buy a deadly assault rifle....

Trump, the Massacre President, Fails to Act After Yet Another School Mass Shooting

Donald Trump, the “massacre president,” is offering his “condolences” and nothing more in the wake of yet another mass school shooting in Florida that saw as many as 50 students shot by a lone gunman. At least seven students are dead, and the count is expected to rise. The number citizens killed or wounded in mass shootings is skyrocketing in little over a year into his administration, putting it on a pace to become one of the bloodiest in modern political history....

Texas Reaps Gun Culture Whirlwind; ‘Snipers’ Slay 5 Dallas Police Officers

Texas is reaping a whirlwind from the seeds it sowed leading to its free-wheeling gun culture. Five Dallas police officers were killed and six others injured last night by four “snipers” who were armed with assault rifles and wore military-style body armor. Last year, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, a longtime gun rights advocate, signed a bill into law, enacting the loosest open carry law in the country. Buying an assault rifle in the Lone Star State is as easy as picking up a loaf of bread. Any owner is free to carry guns in public with an easy-to-obtain permit. ...

Is Michael Moore’s Feud With Clint Eastwood Behind His Sniper Shots?

Michael Moore may have had personal reasons for taking pot-shots at snipers, and indirectly the new movie “American Sniper.” He and Clint Eastwood have been political antagonists for years, to the point Eastwood once threatened to kill him. Moore, of course, has been the bane of right wingers and corporate America throughout his career. Their bad blood goes back to 2005 when both were honored for films by the National Board Review....

NRA Slaps Hollywood for Violent Culture; Will Hollywood Bite Back?

Wayne LaPierre, the National Rifle Association’s hard-line anti-gun regulation architect, unleashed a blistering attack on Hollywood for cranking out what he called “filthiest form of pornography.” Will Hollywood fight back and lead the campaign against assault weapons? It can be a powerful persuasive force it the debate, but it will take celebrity involvement and more to counter the NRA’s deep pockets and copious campaign contributions in Washington....

Rocker Ted Nugent Goes Off Obama Hating Rocker (watch!)

Rocker Ted Nugent came out strongly for Mitt Romney at this weekend’s National Rifle Association convention, blasting the Obama administration for “wiping its ass with the Constitution.” His metaphor for the campaign also leave a lot to be desired. “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?” he said....
