In the opening monologue of his show “Huckabee” Saturday night, Mike Huckabee began to backpedal on his support for the Common Core curriculum, saying that he doesn’t support “what Common Core has become in many states or school districts.” He also encouraged the retirement of the “toxic” term Common Core, …

According to a new CNN/ORC International survey, 49% of Americans say they support stricter gun control laws, with 50% opposed. The 49% support is down six percentage points from the 55% who said they backed stricter gun control in CNN polling from January….
Child Support, a Baseball Bat, and Boiling Alfredo Sauce: The Diner Rampage That Landed Three Women in Jail
Three Pennsylvania women are facing charges for a rampage that allegedly involved boiling Alfredo sauce, an aluminum baseball bat, and seven injured people.
Law enforcement officials said Tori Thomas entered Cee Tee’s Diner in Canton, Pa., at around 2 p.m. Friday looking for a man named Andrew Herron who reportedly owed her child support.
Herron told Thomas he would not pay, prompting Thomas to storm out of the diner. Police did not say whether Herron worked at the diner.
Mother Jones uncovered new “dirt” on Virginia candidate for Governor Ken Cuccinelli: he has given thousands of dollars of his own money to pregnancy resource centers. That’s right—the breaking “scandal” this week is that Ken Cuccinelli’s charitable giving includes helping local women who face tough times during pregnancy.
NARAL Pro-Choice America is, predictably, incensed. Its headline screams “Ken Cuccinelli Caught Donating Personal Funds to Fake Clinics That Lie to Women.” Although such a title might imply that these pregnancy centers are a sham storefront, they, and the women they serve, are real.
We’ve been guilty of our share of typos here at Twitchy, but there’s something so wrong about such an obvious typo coming from Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers — not to mention the idea that Wendy Davis’ 11-hour filibuster was “for the children.”
Maryland: Multiple Citizen Groups Unite to Prevent Senate Bill 281 from Being Implemented with NRA’s Support
Yesterday, with support from the National Rifle Association the Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore, Maryland Licensed Firearms Dealers Association, Maryland Shall Issue, Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association, National Shooting Sports Foundation and several firearms dealers along with individual Maryland citizens, filed suit to stop the implementation and enforcement of Maryland’s planned ban on certain common and popular semi-automatic long guns and restriction on the purchase or sale of magazines with a capacity in excess of ten rounds.
Despite the horrific mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, support for more gun control has fallen to its lowest level in over a year. Most Americans don’t think tougher gun control would have prevented this week’s killings anyway.
It’s never been a secret that ObamaCare has long been unpopular. But as the components of the “Affordable Care Act” are rolled out, the numbers who oppose ObamaCare grow larger. (See also “NBC’s Chuck Todd: Bad PR To Blame For ObamaCare’s Unpopularity.”)
The latest evidence of popular discontent is evidenced by a new CNN/ORC International survey where 57% oppose all or most of the provisions of ObamaCare. Not only has the percentage in favor shrunk to 39%, the President’s signature domestic achievement is taking a hit among key Democratic constituencies.
Despite the fact that 42 other states allow their residents to purchase rifles and shotguns in any state, provided that the purchase or transfer of the long gun complies with state and federal law, Wisconsin only allows their residents to purchase long guns in bordering or contiguous states.
A majority of Palestinian Muslims say they support suicide bombing as a means to defend Islam from its enemies, according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center.
The poll – released one day before the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks – also found that Al Qaeda is “reviled” among a majority of the Muslims surveyed in 11 countries
Lawmakers in Washington are attempting to rebalance U.S. spending on foreign aid which has for years limited funding for maternal and child health and increased spending for groups promoting population reduction and abortion.
Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison (reportedly eligible for parole in seven) for leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks, and many celebs took to Twitter to defend him:
The Wisconsin Senate Natural Resources Committee held an important public hearing today on a bill that would allow hunters to use a crossbow during the big game archery season. Assembly Bill 194, sponsored by state Representative Mary Czaja (R-35), is expected to pass this Committee tomorrow and will then head to the state Senate’s floor for approval. Therefore, it is critical you begin contacting your state Senator NOW and urge him or her to SUPPORT AB 194 when it comes up for consideration on the Senate floor.
The Dream Defenders today spent their 25th day occupying Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s office in an effort to have the state’s “stand your ground” legislation repealed, while the members of the Florida Sheriffs Association reaffirmed their support for the law with a unanimous vote.
Pro-abortion darling Wendy Davis is basking in all of the attention she’s getting, ever since her 10+ hour filibuster of Texas SB5, which banned abortion after 20 weeks and increased safety regulations for abortion clinics. She didn’t filibuster long enough to delay a vote, but luckily for her, she had a mob of abortion advocates ready to scream long enough to prevent the bill from getting passed. Unfortunately, Davis still failed. Governor Rick Perry simply called a special session, and the bill ultimately passed.
