The Hatred of the Left

By ELLIS KNOX

When a recent Drudge Report story provided a link to Variety, the entertainment industry’s newspaper, their headline highlighted the profane announcement that actor Robert De Niro made to the recent Tony Awards crowd.

His profane announcement - too vulgar to repeat in a family newspaper - received a standing ovation from the lefty Hollywood crowd.

Climate Change

by ELLIS KNOX

The Wall Street Journal recently declared that climate change is a dead issue. The Journal wrote that the climate change bunch has left the weather issue and moved over to social justice, whatever that is this week.

After all the hoopla by liberals like Al Gore and all the dire warnings about global catastrophe because of “global warming,” the planet cooled off and the cataclysm that was supposed to happen any moment…just didn’t. The prediction of a weather Armageddon in 25 years was made 35 years ago. Oops.

Why boys shoot up schools

By ELLIS KNOX

Recently I was reading National Review Online and found an article written by David French theorizing why boys shoot up schools. After reading it, I came away believing French had hit upon an explanation and as the most recent school shooting in Texas suggest, a rather uncomfortable one.

French writes, “…one of the first questions we ask is the simplest and also the hardest to answer…Why does this keep happening?”

Rules for gun owners

By ELLIS KNOX

New and seasoned gun owners can always use some tips on keeping your arms in top shape and some tricks of the trade, so this week I’ll share some of the handy rules I’ve picked up over the years.

• Keep a humidity absorbent in your gun safe if you leave it locked all the time.

• Using a good cleaner-preservative-lubricant (CLP) is a good idea. Whatever you do, never use WD-40 on any gun. It is not a cleaner, or a preservative, and not a lubricant. What it does is loosen screws and remove moisture. It can be a gun killer, especially with semi-auto rifles.

4-H Summer Fun

By KAYCEE DAVIS

Don’t be fooled! Camp County 4-H is more fun than riding a wild bull, and sometimes, you even get to do that in 4-H.

This summer the Camp County 4-H Youth Organization will host several free programs for youth who are interested in getting to know more about 4-H. The first two will be single sessions on photography and robotics. The third program, Camp County 4-H Jr. “AgVocates,” will be a 4-part series.

The way I see it

By ELLIS KNOX

Oh No! I’m a member of the press

I was able to observe the Democrat-controlled national news media up close at the National Rifle Association (NRA) Convention in Dallas recently. To say they were in a hostile environment would be an understatement. Almost every speaker pointed out their left wing bias to boos, hisses, and cat calls from 10,000 plus NRA members in the auditorium.

Lars Dalseide is the media representative for the NRA in the Washington D.C. metro area. He is a staunch NRA member and dis-respecter of the national media. He and his staff were responsible for vetting and issuing the press credentials for the convention. All of the passes for each group of visitors to the event were color coded and his feelings about the national democrat press were obvious in the choice of color for the press passes… PINK.

Pioneer Days: Under the Big Top

Carnival to be bigger and better

Are you and your family are planning to attend this year’s Pioneer Days? Perhaps this year, the entire family is planning to attend, grandparents, parents and the grandkids. Attending Pioneer Days is an annual tradition for the family and has been held in downtown Pittsburg for the past 47 years. On Saturday, September 15, make plans to head downtown to watch the Pioneer Days parade, grab a corndog and a funnel cake, and shop at the vendors set up along Jefferson/Quitman Street. It’s always a fun event for the entire family and this year we’ll have an extra element of fun, all activities will revolve around a circus theme in anticipation of the circus coming to town October 23.

Capital Highlights

By ED STERLING

 

AUSTIN — Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton last week asked two federal agencies to move quickly to fund the state’s Healthy Texas Women program. The program was cut off from Medicaid funding by the Obama administration in 2012 after the Texas Legislature enacted a law preventing taxpayer money from going to abortion providers. In a May 7 letter to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Paxton said the addition of some

 

$30 million a year in federal dollars would increase access to family planning and preventative health services for low-income women across the state who are not covered by traditional Medicaid in Texas. Paxton sent the letter at the request of Gov. Greg Abbott and on behalf of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. He wrote that allowing states to exclude providers who perform or promote abortion is consistent with federal policy.

A winning strategy?

by ELLIS KNOX

The Democrat party has announced its new tax reform when they take over the U. S. House and Senate. They announced they will raise taxes on the rich, lower taxes on working families. Now in “Democrat speak” the rich is anyone getting a paycheck and working families means any municipal or state union member or employee of an abortion mill.

I know everyone just hates having more money in their pocket or being able to pay less taxes on April 15. The GOP tax cut means next April, families will not have to pay any tax on the first $24,000 of their income and for a single it will raise from $8,000 to $16,000. I know all this good economic news is just breaking everyone’s heart.
