Federalism & domestic policy  - 
 
This may be a case where being bluntly truthful might not  have been the best political strategy.

Trump commented that it would have been nice if someone had been there to shoot back at the Orlando terrorist.  That's absolutely correct:  mass shootings tend to happen in gun free zones, and there are states where concealed carry laws permit carry into nightclubs - provided one isn't drinking - which might in this case have let the mass murder be cut short.

However, there were two problems with the way this was handled.

First, Trump talked before gaining a deep enough knowledge of gun rights issues to emphasize the part about "provided one isn't drinking".  This enabled the press to twist the words into support for people packing guns while drunk.

Second, the NRA didn't want to touch the issue since they knew how the press would twist it.  But, their making a statement that appeared to undermine Trump - whom they have endorsed - just allowed the press to make more hay.

Trump may need to shift to a more conventional campaign strategy.  He should want the headlines right now to be about how Obama's attorney general Loretta Lynch is trying to censor Islamic terrorism out of the  Orlando shooter's manifesto, rather than about his own comments.  Unlike Trump's primary opponents, Obama does plenty of things that would help people to vote against him - or Clinton as his successor - and making the election a referendum on Obama, rather than on Trump, is probably the better strategy.

How conservative is Donald Trump on guns? In one specific area of the debate, he's to the right on the NRA.

Either way, we would be backing the wrong people. There are no moderates to speak of in Syria. So we would either be helping jihadis or helping Assad. The best thing to do would be to just stay out of it. But if we had to pick a side, I say we should help Assad.

Rubio reverses himself and seeks reelection to the senate.

I'm not sure how I feel about this.  I don't mind Rubio in the senate, but DeSantis would have been fine too.  And it does go to show how little Rubio's promises are worth.

In the wake of the Mateen mass murder in Orlando, four gun control bills were proposed in the Senate, none of which would have had any effect on Mateen since he had been dropped from the terror watch list - a superset of the no fly list - and since he bought his firearms through regular dealers that already used background checks.

Thankfully, sanity has returned and all of these "do something that won't fix the problem" proposals have now failed.

The Obama administration will be removing references to the Islamic State from the transcript of the Orlando murderer's 911 call.  Talk about providing cover for Islamic terrorism!

In an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, Attorney General Loretta Lynch says that on Monday, the FBI will release edited transcripts of the 911 calls made by the Orlando nightclub shooter to the police during his rampage. "What we're not going to do is further proclaim this man's pledges of alleigance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda," Lynch said. "We are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance [to the Islamic Sta...

Under Obama, the FBI has failed to keep up with the change from bearded Al Qaeda terrorists to hip Islamic State terrorists.

Warning if you click through:  while the article has good information, it also has a leftist slant.  The comment stream is currently pretty good, though.

The face of terrorism is changing. And critics say the bureau has been too slow to catch on.

Whole pork loins from Hatfield Quality Meats are far too lean. There is no intramuscular fat and a very thin fat layer, making the meat relatively dry rather than juicy and tasty. If you want a delicious roast, look for another brand.
