Time For Proud Leftist Bill Maher To Put His $5 Million Where His Mouth Is

After radical leftist Bill Maher publicly insulted Donald Trump’s family with his usual vulgarity, Trump met Maher’s challenge and now wants Maher to pay up, as detailed in a letter.

“Attached hereto is a copy of Mr. Trump’s birth certificate, demonstrating that he is the son of Fred Trump, not an orangutan. Please remit the $5 million to Mr. Trump immediately and he will ensure that the money be donated to the following five charities in equal amounts: Hurricane Sandy Victims, The Police Athletic League, The American Cancer Society, The March of Dimes, and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.”

Trump is no innocent, but Maher is the poster boy for the insults that now permeate the Left’s public discourse.

Kay Hagan’s weasel words on gun control

Picture 2Here is the response Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan sent to a constituent urging her not to support gun-control measures in the wake of Sandy Hook.

It balances on a thin political line better than Karl Wallenda, with all the appropriate concern for the kids of Newtown and professions of support for the Second Amendment. But note the use of “unnecessarily” at the end of the second paragraph. That’s a hole you could drive a Mack truck through.

Note, too, her implication in the third paragraph that protecting hunters’ guns is the raison d’etre of the Second Amendment, a popular lefty position (emphasis added by me):

Thank you for contacting me regarding the horrific tragedy that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. I appreciate hearing your thoughts on this issue, and my thoughts and prayers remain with the victims and families of this senseless and appalling act of violence.

In the wake of the shooting in Newtown, which left twenty-six innocent members of the community dead, many of them young children, Americans across the country are searching for answers on how we can prevent such tragic events from happening in the future. I believe we must do all we can to put laws and policies in place to prevent future tragedies such as this one. Doing that will require a common-sense debate on a comprehensive approach that examines all relevant issues, including access to firearms, mental healthcare, and the prevalence of violence in video games and media. Additionally, Senator Feinstein has stated her intent to introduce legislation concerning access to firearms at the start of the 113th Congress. To date, that legislation has not been introduced. As always, it is important that we not unnecessarily infringe on the legitimate Second Amendment rights of responsible gun owners.

Like you, I have always been an advocate for Second Amendment rights. My family, like the great state of North Carolina, has a long tradition of hunting and gun ownership, and I take great pride in that heritage. During my tenure in the North Carolina Senate I continuously supported the responsible use of firearms. As your United States Senator, I will always be committed to protecting these fundamental, constitutional rights.

Again, thank you for contacting my office. It is truly an honor to represent North Carolina in the United States Senate, and I hope you will not hesitate to contact me in the future should you have any further questions or concerns. If you would like to stay informed on my work in the Senate, you can sign up for my e-newsletter, follow me on Twitter at @SenatorHagan, or visit my Facebook page
