Recently, Sen. Mitch McConnell told the New York Times he and the GOP Establishment intend “to crush [conservatives] everywhere” in the primary elections. Now he is attempting to clarify those comments by claiming he only meant those candidates supported by the Senate Conservatives Fund.
However, as RedState’s Erick Erickson points out, McConnell has been consistently against conservatives for some time now:
Actually, Mitch McConnell has been pretty open in the past about his contempt for conservatives. He has referred to conservatives and the outside groups they fund, as traitors, bullies, drunks, and fringe. He claims conservatives “tear up every bar they walk into,” and he wants to “punch” the tea party “in the nose.”
McConnell now says he only meant he wanted to crush the Senate Conservatives Fund, but back in 2009 and 2010, the Senate Conservatives Fund was the group standing with conservatives and Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul against Mitch McConnell’s supported Arlen Specter, Charlie Crist, Bob Bennett, and Trey Grayson.
It is true that a number of McConnell’s remarks have focused on the Senate Conservatives Fund, but his remarks have also targeted groups like FreedomWorks, Club For Growth, and others. He is systematically targeting conservative organizations that do not follow the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s lead. What’s worse, he is enlisting a bunch of useful idiots on the right to do damage control for him and to protect him.
McConnell isn’t just against SCF-backed conservatives. He’s against all conservatives — and it’s time to send him and all the other RINOs out to the nature reserve. Donate today to help American Liberty PAC elect true conservatives!

Illinois soda tax would hit poor and minorities hardest
From our friends at the Illinois Policy Institute…
Illinois state Sen. Mattie Hunter, D-Chicago, has proposed a penny-per-ounce soda tax as a way to reduce soda consumption and raise even more state revenue. The tax would hit sugary drinks sold in containers, including regular sodas, fruit drinks, sports drinks, energy drinks, and tea and coffee drinks.
Targeting an industry and its consumers…

A person is guilty of criminal possession of a weapon in the second
(1) with intent to use the same unlawfully against another, such
(a) possesses a machine-gun; or
(b) possesses a loaded firearm; or
(c) possesses a disguised gun; or
(2) such person possesses five or more firearms; or
(3) such person possesses any loaded firearm.
Such possession shall not, except as provided in subdivision one or seven of section 265.02 of
this article, constitute a violation of this subdivision if such possession takes place in such person’s home or place of business.
Criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree is a class C felony.A person is guilty of criminal possession of a weapon in the first
degree when such person:
(1) possesses any explosive substance with intent to use the same
unlawfully against the person or property of another; or
(2) possesses ten or more firearms.
Criminal possession of a weapon in the first degree is a class B
So possession of five or more firearms is illegal, even if you owned them before the gun law went into effect. Worried that it may be a gun grab? Well, don’t sweat it, because New York State has an arbitrary definition of what a “firearm” is:3. “Firearm” means (a) any pistol or revolver; or (b) a shotgun having one or more barrels less than eighteen inches in length; or (c) a rifle having one or more barrels less than sixteen inches in length; or (d) any weapon made from a shotgun or rifle whether by alteration, modification, or otherwise if such weapon as altered, modified, or otherwise has an overall length of less than twenty-six inches; or (e) an assault weapon.
Do you feel safer yet?
"No one is coming for your guns"
Notice the language of the bill utilizes the “or” conjunction in order to specify that merely possession of “five or more” guns alone makes a person “guilty of criminal possession of a weapon in the second
A woman who was arrested last month for feeding wild animals will stay in jail for now after her latest arrest.
A judge decided this morning to hold Mary Musselman, 81, behind bars after she allegedly violated the terms of her probation.
Musselman originally went to jail back in January after wildlife officers said she violated probation by feeding bears in and near her backyard. They said she had been warned not to feed wild animals last November after wildlife officers had to euthanize a bear she had been feeding.
A judge gave her probation at the time, and made it clear: Do it again, and go to jail.
She did, was arrested in January, and the case ignited controversy when Musselman was held without bond.
Her attorney, William Fletcher, told FOX 13 that officers issued a new arrest warrant after checking on her home and seeing that she was leaving bread out for crows.
That violates her court order not to feed any wild animals.
Musselman appeared in court this morning. Fletcher said a medical evaluation concluded that Musselman suffers from Alzheimer’s and dementia, and he requested that the judge place her in alternate housing, such as her brother’s home in Illinois.
"I understand the court orders need to be obeyed. But this woman, she’s mentally ill, judge," he said.
The judge, however, said he wanted a more complete mental evaluation and ordered Musselman to be held in a secure facility until then, so she will remain behind bars.
This elderly woman was arrested for feeding birds, as if that is anything similar to feeding bears. And she was held without bond. And then, a doctor found that she has Alzheimer’s and dementia. The state’s solution? Keep her in jail.
If you’re down in Florida, I really say don’t vote for David Jolly.
If you want things to change, look for the Libertarian candidate on the ballot, Lucas Overby.
Don’t elect Jolly, he’s just another crony like Sink. They’re both bad news.
