Perhaps "The Common Sense" state would be a more appropriate sobriquet for Missouri with its lawmakers' override of the governor's veto of a common sense bill protecting Second Amendment rights.
In a meeting September 11 with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough promised the congressmen that President Obama will act on immigration “reform” before the end of 2014.
Even though the Obama administration’s previous unconstitutional support for jihadists and rebels in Syria empowered the “Islamic State” to begin with, the president announced on September 10 that his strategy to deal with the ISIS threat would be to provide still more weapons and training to Islamists. Without constitutional or congressional authority to do so, then, Obama is plotting to supposedly defeat jihadists and terrorists by arming and supporting what he refers to as “moderate” jihadists and terrorists. In reality, as has been documented by The New American and countless others, there is virtually no difference between the “moderate rebels” and the terrorists often referred to as ISIS or ISIL.
