“Meet Pennsylvania’s TOP Constitutional attorney, and have YOUR questions ready:
About Joshua Prince, Esq.
With our 2nd Amendment rights being attacked at both the Federal and State level, and the ATF (Burea of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives) trying to close down FFLs (Federal Firearms Licensees) for minor infractions while making FFLs the scapegoat when the ATF’s records are inaccurate, I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am one of only a handful of attorneys across the US that practices in the niche area of law known as firearms law. I decided to concentrate my legal practice on firearms law not only because I am a shooter and firearms enthusiast, but also to ensure that our inalienable Right to Keep and Bear Arms is never encroached upon. I handle cases at the Federal and State level for both FFLs and individuals.
*We will briefly hear from Eve Allen, PA Director for Concerned Veterans For America. You will be astonished at what is actually happening and/or not happening to our very own. This will also include a Q&A. “
Janet: Heritage Action
Heritage is asking its Sentinels to call our Congressional Reps over this recess, which ends January 3, to ask them to have an Obamacare repeal bill ready for Trump to sign after inauguration.
Republicans must now honor their campaign promises and use a budget process that is most likely to repeal Obamacare, the legislation that
- did not allow us to keep our doctors
- did not reduce premiums (PA will see 30-39% premium hikes)
- intruded into doctor-patient decisions
- saw major insurance companies suffer unsustainable losses in the exchanges
- forced us to buy coverages we did not need nor want, like abortion inducing drugs.
Please contact Reps. Meehan and Costello, and Senator Toomey, BEFORE January 3, at links below.
Tell them simply that
Congress must pass and have on Mr. Trump’s desk, after Inauguration, a fiscal year 2017 budget bill that Fully repeals Obamacare, with the ‘reconciliation’ language that allows the bill to pass with simple majorities in both Houses. After repeal, Congress can begin the work of replacing Obamacare with options that are truly affordable and that move our healthcare away from federal control and back to us and our doctors.

Mark Hodge, UK TheSun: “WAR GAMES: US sends special forces to RUSSIAN BORDER as NATO is poised to strike back against Vladimir Putin’s ‘aggression’
“Russia is reportedly building up a nuclear arsenal in the province of Kaliningrad which borders Lithuania
“Tensions between Washington and the Kremlin have reached Cold War levels amid reports Vladimir Putin is building up a nuclear arsenal in the Russian province of Kaliningrad – which borders Poland, Belarus and Lithuania.
And Lithuanian Defence Ministry spokeswoman Asta Galdikaite confirmed America has offered additional military support following Russia invasion of Crimea.
She said: ‘The United States was the first to offer additional safety assurance measures to the Baltic countries following the deterioration of the security situation in the region after the annexation of the Crime’.
She added: “US Special Operations Forces presence in Lithuania is one of the deterrents” against military threats by Putin’s aggressive regime, reports the Express.
Ian Schwartz, RCP: “Assange to Hannity: Source for WikiLeaks Was Not Russian Government”
“HANNITY: Can you say to the American people, unequivocally, that you did not get this information about the DNC, John Podesta’s emails, can you tell the American people 1,000 percent that you did not get it from Russia or anybody associated with Russia?
JULIAN ASSANGE: Yes. We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party.”
Also – Assange/Hannity, Fox: “Russian government not the source of WikiLeaks emails”
“Damning emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman did not come from Russian hackers and the claim is being made to “delegitimize” Donald Trump, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told Fox News’ Sean Hannity in an exclusive interview.
“Hannity sat down with Assange in London’s Ecuadorian embassy, where the Australian native has been holed up for five years battling extradition to Sweden on unrelated charges. Part I of the interview is set to air Tuesday night at 10 p.m. on Fox News Channel’s Hannity.
“In excerpts released prior to airing, Assange is adamant that the hacked emails his organization released of Clinton official John Podesta did not come from Russia, as the Obama administration has claimed.
“‘We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party,’ Assange said.
“More than 50,000 emails were released during the 2016 presidential campaign, exposing dubious practices at the Clinton Foundation, top journalists working closely with the Clinton campaign, key Clinton aides speaking derisively of Catholics and a top Democratic National Committee official providing debate questions to Clinton in advance. . .”
Lana Shadick, Breitbart: “Feds Continue to Drop Migrants at Texas Bus Stops”
“Bus station employees are reporting that illegal immigrants continue pour into the Texas border town of Laredo. They have seen a holding center for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) carrying between 20 and 40 undocumented women during at least five bus trips.
“The local NBC affiliate, 8KGNS-TV first heard that 400 migrants were headed to the border city but it has been difficult to get a concrete number of released individuals from the agency. Officials report that these women meet certain release eligibility requirements set by the federal government. . .”
Deborah Dinan, Breitbart: “Senate Moves To Denounce UN For Anti-Israel Resolution”
“TEL AVIV – Congressional Republicans are moving quickly to denounce the United Nations for its recent Security Council resolution deeming all Israeli settlements “flagrant violation[s] of international law.”
“More than 100 members of Congress have formally condemned the resolution, the Times of Israel reported.
“GOP lawmakers in both chambers have decided to introduce resolutions targeted at the UN once Congress reconvenes. Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran and Florida Rep. Dennis Ross are both slated to introduce disapproval resolutions against the international body. . .”
Joel Pollak, Breitbart: “Liberals Panic as Trump Could Flip Left-Leaning Ninth Circuit”
“Liberals are panicking about the fact that President-elect Donald Trump will be able to fill four vacancies on the historically left-leaning Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals when he takes office later this month.
“Outgoing Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) called the vacancies a ‘judicial emergency,’ according to Bay Area public radio station KQED, even though there are 29 judges on the court. The “emergency” is that Trump’s nominees might be able to make the court more conservative.
“The Ninth Circuit’s jurisdiction covers many West Coast states, and its decisions have often reflected the liberal political culture of California and other “left coast” outposts. Over the past several decades, the frequency with which the U.S. Supreme Court — which had a narrow 5-4 conservative majority until 2016 — reversed Ninth Circuit rulings became a recurring theme. However, the Ninth Circuit has shown flashes of independence, as in recent Second Amendment rulings. . .”
Victor Davis Hanson, NRO: It’s Still a Mad, Mad California”
“Hypocrisy, when coupled with sanctimoniousness, grates people like few other human transgressions: Barack Obama opposing charter schools for the inner city as he puts his own children in Washington’s toniest prep schools, or Bay Area greens suing to stop contracted irrigation water from Sierra reservoirs, even as they count on the Yosemite’s Hetch Hetchy project to deliver crystal-clear mountain water to their San Francisco taps.
“The American progressive elite relies on its influence, education, money, and cultural privilege to exempt itself from the bad schools, unassimilated immigrant communities, dangerous neighborhoods, crime waves, and general impoverishment that are so often the logical consequences of its own policies — consequences for others, that is. Abstract idealism on behalf of the distant is a powerful psychological narcotic that allows caring progressives to dull the guilt they feel about their own privilege and riches.
“Nowhere is this paradox truer than in California . . .”
Eric Lipton, NYT: “With No Warning, House Republicans Vote to Gut Independent Ethics Office” CANCELLED!
“President-elect Donald J. Trump criticized House Republicans on Tuesday for their surprise ethics move. Read the latest coverage.
“WASHINGTON — House Republicans, overriding their top leaders, voted on Monday to significantly curtail the power of an independent ethics office set up in 2008 in the aftermath of corruption scandals that sent three members of Congress to jail.
The move to effectively kill the Office of Congressional Ethics was not made public until late Monday, when Representative Robert W. Goodlatte, Republican of Virginia and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, announced that the House Republican Conference had approved the change. There was no advance notice or debate on the measure. . .”
Alexandra Desanctis, NRO: “Reversing Obama’s Last-Minute Land Grab”
“In the waning hours of his presidency, Barack Obama has designated more than 1.5 million acres for two new national monuments — Bears Ears in Utah and Gold Butte in Nevada. State lawmakers in the region have for years debated creating these monuments and had yet to reach a conclusion before Obama made his controversial move Wednesday.
“The Bears Ears monument will take up an astounding 1.35 million acres, a region bigger than the state of Delaware, and the Gold Butte monument will cover nearly 300,000 acres in an area often referred to as Nevada’s portion of the Grand Canyon. In a statement, the president asserted that these monuments “will protect places that a wide range of stakeholders all agree are worthy of protection.” He also claimed that his administration ‘worked to ensure that tribes and local communities can continue to access and benefit from these lands for generations to come.’
“But many state lawmakers disagree, arguing that this decision puts vast pieces of land into the hands of the federal government alone, removing power from state lawmakers and thus removing control from the people of Utah and Nevada. These new monuments aren’t the first occasion for such concerns to surface, especially in the western part of the country. The federal government controls 25 percent of all land in the U.S., 50 percent of land west of the Rocky Mountains, and 85 percent of the land in Nevada. . .”
Rachel Stoltzfoos, Daily Caller: “Trump Is Laying the Groundwork for His Border Wall behind the Scenes”
“The Trump transition team has asked the Department of Homeland Security to report how much money is available to build a border wall, and to provide other information key to implementing the president-elect’s immigration proposals.
“The requests outlined by the transition team in an early December meeting with DHS officials suggest Trump is serious about his promises to secure the southern border, deport illegal immigrants and reverse President Obama’s executive orders on immigration. A memo reviewed by Reuters summarized the meeting.
“In addition to the request for an assessment of resources available for barrier construction on the border, the transition team asked the agency whether it could expand temporary immigrant detention facilities, and about a popular border surveillance program that was scaled back under Obama.
“The transition team also asked whether DHS has altered immigrant records for any reason, including out of civil rights concerns, likely to determine whether Obama is trying to protect some of them from deportation.”
Mark Levin 01-03-17
“On Tuesday’s Mark Levin show, President Obama is driven by hate and hates Israel like he hates America. Obama and his administration helped draft the anti-Israel UN resolution behind the scenes in the dark ,and then they let the UN vote through. The only friends that Israel has in America are conservatives. John Kerry went on and on about how the Israelis were to blame and that they were putting America at great risk. He’s ignoring history and cherry picking the facts.
“In addition, Democrats are now organizing for a Trump impeachment and investigation. They are engaging in guerilla tactics on Capitol Hill. Later, if you are going to create an environment that prevents trade, not only will you destroy jobs, you destroy the economy. You can’t tariff your way into prosperity. Also, former Ambassador John Bolton calls in to talk to Mark about Russia, Israel and defunding the UN.
“Finally, Daniel Horowitz calls in and tells Mark that he’s hearing that Congress will not repeal Obamacare, they will repeal the funding mechanisms only. Congress will keep the heart and soul of Obamacare which will now be Obamacare light.” (emph added, jb)
REPLAY – James Brody: “Putin & Islam: Who CAIRS?”
Russia had problems with Muslim attacks but things have been quieter for several years. Vlad knows some things that Obama, whose career lies with leading Islam to America, refuses to put to work. Instead of criticizing Vlad, Donald should invite him to the inauguration and hire him to clean up Chicago! Remember: Impulsive people respond not to lectures or public school but to consequences that are immediate, important individually, and certain! As for Obama – his “library” will consist of materials that he stole from the taxpayer and that he and Jarrett will need in their next career . . .
