The Wrap: From ‘assault weapon’ bills shot down to Iranian shadow wars, the week that was
Question of the Day
The TSA reportedly humiliated a wounded Marine and Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s gun control bill was shot down in the Senate.
Here’s a recap, or wrap, on the week that was from The Washington Times:
- Bill Maher threatens to leave California — due to high taxes
Liberal HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher says he may leave California, due to the state’s high tax rate. “Liberals,” he said, during a recent broadcast,” you could actually lose me.”
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, suggested raising the minimum wage to $22 per hour is only logical if you look at the numbers.
The Obama administration’s top deportation official acknowledged on Tuesday that he could have asked Congress for flexibility to avoid having to release more than 2,000 immigrants back onto the streets ahead of the budget sequesters, but he decided the releases were a better option.
A U.S. defense contractor who works in intelligence at the military’s Pacific Command in Hawaii has been charged with passing classified national security information to a 27-year-old Chinese woman he was dating.
Transportation Security Administration inspectors forced a wounded Marine who lost both of his legs in an IED blast and who was in a wheelchair to remove his prosthetic legs at one point, and at another point to stand painfully on his legs while his wheelchair was examined, according to a complaint a congressman has registered with the TSA.
President Obama said getting a national “assault weapon” ban was one of his major policy goals of the year. He has already failed.
