Eric Holder looking into electronic bracelets for legal gun owners


That’s right; the man who lost track of who knows how many guns in the Fast and Furious operation is toying with the idea of issuing electronic bracelets (or some other worn item) to gun owners. The idea is similar to “smart guns” with fingerprint ID, so that a gun can be fired only by its bracelet-wearing owner. Good idea, huh?

Gateway Pundit has the story, as well as video from the Washington Free Beacon.

What do you say?

Steven Crowder takes on Lena Dunham and “rape culture” [video]


The left is obsessed with taking strong words and robbing them of their real meaning. “Racism” and “hate” are now applied to simple disagreement. With all the talk condemning “rape culture” are they minimizing the real crime of rape? Steven Crowder tackles the issue (and —shudder— plays Lena Dunham again) in his latest video.

New video up tonight! Will be taking @lenadunham to task and addressing our plaguing "rape culture" problem.

@rilaws "We'll get to rape culture in a sec" is something I never should have heard Steven Crowder say.

Probably a good guess.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren bemoans Tim Geithner’s coddling of ‘tender fannies’ [video]


File this one under “Things We Wish We Could Un-hear.”

In her new book, “A Fighting Chance,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren writes this about Tim Geithner, former Treasury secretary:

“Millions of people were getting tossed out on the street, but the government’s most important job was to provide a soft landing for the tender fannies of the banks.”

Reading the words is one thing, but we probably could’ve done without actually hearing Warren say “tender fannies” out loud:


Here’s the video from today’s edition of NPR’s Diane Rehm Show (starts around the 8:50 mark):


Rehm: What do you think of the role Hank Paulson played and the role Tim Geithner played?

Warren: Well, as I talk about both of them in the book, my view was they focused much too much on protecting the tender fannies of the largest financial institutions.




Now, granted, it’s Elizabeth Warren’s über-progressive political philosophy that’s truly objectionable. But “tender fannies” doesn’t exactly make her more palatable. We may need some time to regroup.
