Colorado Second Amendment activists undaunted by death threats; Recall Hudak effort in full swing

As Twitchy reported in September, Colorado grass-roots Second Amendment activists scored historic victories with the recall of two prominent Democrat gun-grabbers: state Sen. president John Morse in Colorado Springs and Democrat state Sen. Angela Giron in Pueblo. But their work is not finished. Activists have been gathering signatures to recall one of the state’s most odious, anti-gun state senators, Democrat Evie Hudak. Readers will remember her appalling dismissal of rape victim Amanda Collins and her reckless advocacy of disarming women.

Ten Years of Euthanasia in Belgium Has Made Death the Norm, Living the Exception

Recently I received an invitation to fly to Calgary in mid-November to attend the North American première of a film called End Credits at the Marda Loop Justice Film Festival. I was asked to lead a post-screening conversation with the audience and was given access to a copy of the film with English subtitles, which I viewed once. My access has since been blocked and my invitation to attend the festival withdrawn. The scenes from the film, which I describe below, are accurate to the best of my recollection.

“End Credits” is directed by Alexander Decommere and written by Marc Cosyns. It’s a documentary on the practice of euthanasia in Belgium 10 years after it was legalized in 2002. It follows the dying and death of two people, whom the film makers describe as follows: “Adelin, 83, and Eva, 34, two very different people, who are at the dawn of the end of their lives, ask for help with and care for a decent passing away.”

“Death Panels” Are Euthanizing Patients Every Day as Doctors Make Treatment Decisions

Former Governor Sarah Palin, whether it was intentional or not, certainly began the discussion on end of life issues when she referred to “death panels” in a 2009 debate about federal health care legislation to cover the uninsured in the US.

Governor Palin was referring to death panels in the context of government officials making life and death decisions if/when the government took over our health care system.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards committed to ‘Death to America’

Despite the obvious fact that Iran has given no quarter, no indication that they were willing to suspend uranium enrichment, Obama rewarded them anyway, which has led to more threats and more demands. Obama's response? He is weighing unfreezing Iran's assets.

Now this. A celebration of Obama's capitulation.

The Horrible Tactic the Taliban Is Once Again Using With Children to Fulfill Death Missions

Taliban extremists have kidnapped more than 100 children from Afghanistan and Pakistan in the last year to use for suicide missions against government officials and U.S. troops still fighting in the region, U.S. and Pakistani sources told TheBlaze.

It’s a resurgence of old tactics to indoctrinate child suicide bombers, and means suicide training in extremist schools are once again a threat to Western civilians and troops, a U.S. counterterrorism official said.

Unhinged: UCSF fundraiser wishes death on all Obamacare ‘nonbelievers’; Nick Searcy shreds

The soulless and morally bankrupt Left is sickly at it again. As Twitchy reported, the communications chair for the Sacramento Dems wished death upon Amanda Carpenter’s children. Her crime? Working for Sen. Ted Cruz. The cretinous Brauer was subsequently forced to resign.

Now Stephanie Handler, who works for University of California, San Francisco, ups the the repugnant by wishing death on all Obamacare “nonbelievers.” Not only reprehensible, but oh-how-creepy — “nonbelievers.”

Belgium: Professor Blames Euthanasia Law for Death of His Depressed Mother

Dr. Tom Mortier, PhD, lecturer of chemistry at University College Leuven in Belgium, critiqued the Belgian euthanasia law at a press conference in Montreal.
