Face It. Hate is Profitable.

Of all the places I’ve traveled to around the world, my favorite by far is New Zealand. Not only is its natural beauty absolutely spectacular, but its people are incredibly warm and welcoming. And as a Native Hawaiian, I was especially struck by how the indigenous Māori people had forged and maintained respectful and equal relationships with the western world. They weren’t marginalized or caricatured cast-offs lost in the military industrial-slash-tourism complex. They were respected and...

New Zealand massacre shines light on threat of far right extremism worldwide

The mass shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand, which left 49 dead and many others injured, is a reminder that far-right, white supremacist ideology — which was linked to an overwhelming majority of violent extremist murders in the United States in 2017 — is the “most prominent and ascendant threat not just in the United States, but around the world,” a Southern California expert who studies hate and extremism said Friday. A 74-page manifesto posted online by the 28-year-old man charged with the...

Trump vetoes measure to end his emergency declaration on border wall

The veto, made necessary after a strong and unusual rebuke from members of Trump's Republican party, capped a week that left Trump politically wounded, at least temporarily, as immigration and his signature promise of a wall become a flashpoint again in the 2020 presidential campaign. Congress is unlikely to muster the votes to override Trump's veto, a fact that left White House officials confident despite disappointment that it passed the Republican-controlled Senate at all. The bipartisan vo...

Opinion U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- On Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) unabashedly embraced the tactics behind one of the most shameful policies of the Obama era, openly using the guise of her federal authority to berate and not so subtly threaten a bank for lawfully serving businesses that don’t reflect her political views. While the media did their best to protect Barack Obama and his administration from any hint of scandal, two gun related issues man...

U.S. eases protections for threatened bird in Western states

Conservation groups denounced the move as a handout to the oil and gas industries, while an industry group praised it. Former President Barack Obama's 2015 plan to protect the ground-dwelling sage grouse imposed restrictions to development in their habitat but fell short of placing the bird on the endangered species list, which would have imposed far more rigid rules. Of the 11 Western states included in the 2015 plans, seven opted for changes, according to BLM.
