» Kansas City Jewish Center Shootings: Tell Me Again How Gun Laws Stop Criminals From Getting Guns

Gun laws serve to only disarm those not inclined to commit crimes, while rather obviously posing no impediment at all a felon who had such a high profile that he had his own Wikipedia page for the past four years.

How the Left, here and abroad, is trying to shut down debate — from Islam and Israel to global warming and gay marriage


A generation ago, progressive opinion at least felt obliged to pay lip service to the Voltaire shtick. These days, nobody’s asking you to defend yourself to the death: a mildly supportive retweet would do. But even that’s further than most of those in the academy, the arts, the media are prepared to go. As Erin Ching, a student at 60-grand-a-year Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, put it in her college newspaper the other day: ‘What really bothered me is the whole idea that at a liberal arts college we need to be hearing a diversity of opinion.’ Yeah, who needs that? There speaks the voice of a generation: celebrate diversity by enforcing conformity.

» The New Liberal Racism

Today’s liberal elites are the new virulent racists. When you agree with them, they honor you as an African-American. When you contradict their orthodoxy, they abuse you like a dog.


We have largely rid ourselves of the old racism. It is time to rid ourselves of the new form. The burden is on the liberal elites in the Democrat Party and the media to end the paternalism and condescension with which they treat the black community, and renounce the hateful attempts to destroy black conservatives. They need to stop pointing the finger of racism at others and take a hard look at themselves. They are not the racial conscience of the country, but the cause of racial regression.

» Harry Reid: The Desert Fox Of Corruption

The standoff in the Nevada desert wasn’t about a desert tortoise or a rancher’s failure to pay grazing fees. It was about the state’s senior senator again enriching himself and his family at public expense.

“The tortoise wasn’t of concern when Harry Reid worked with BLM to literally change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the development of his top donor, Harvey Whittemore.”
… Last year, Whittemore, 59, who headed a billion-dollar real estate company, was found guilty by a federal jury on three counts tied to nearly $150,000 illegally funneled to Reid’s re-election campaign in 2007. Unfortunately, Cliven Bundy was not a Reid donor.

» The Crime of Being Bullied: 15-Year-Old Special Needs Student Convicted of Disorderly Conduct for Recording Evidence of Bullying

… something surreal happened. Love’s son was first threatened with felony wiretapping, but the charge was later reduced to disorderly conduct. Felony wiretapping? Disorderly conduct? This conduct is not even remotely the sort at which such statutes are directed, and the mind reels at the idiocy of these charges. Using the criminal law to target this helpless 15-year old is a disgraceful exercise of prosecutorial discretion.

You Get What You Tolerate
While strong public objections may (or probably not) make an impression on the idiots involved in this case, strong public reaction in the form of public ass whipping would make a bigger impression and would be recalled to memory by future boneheads.

» The Fog of the Obamacare War

Changing the way Census calculates this metric now, when we’re in the middle of implementing massive changes to health-insurance markets, seems like a good way to skew the numbers in the administration’s favor — especially if the new survey methodology is likely to yield a lower uninsured rate.
… if the White House wanted the Census to produce data that could be used to assess Obamacare, presumably it could have asked that the Census Bureau hold off on the changes.

She quotes health-industry expert Bob Laszewski, who explains how the administration could easily get the data:

We only need ask the carriers for two numbers:

1. The number of people they insured (and were paid for) in both the individual and small group markets as of December 31, 2013 — the day before Obamacare started covering people.

2. The number of people that were insured (and paid for) in both the individual and small group markets on a specific date — March 31, 2014, for example.

Why hasn’t the administration done this? It would have been easy …

» If Obamacare Were Working, They Would Not Do This

… the Census Bureau has decided to radically change how it surveys people’s healthcare. The result will show, just by virtue of changing the questions, that there is a decline in the uninsured in America. Consequently, it will be impossible to track if the decline is related to the change in the question or Obamacare.

Don’t believe me? Here’s this from the New York Times:

Thus, officials said, it will be difficult to say how much of any change is attributable to the Affordable Care Act and how much to the use of a new survey instrument.

» Baghdad buttresses defenses ready for wholesale Al Qaeda assault on city

Six years ago, the contest between US troops and al Qaeda’s savage Iraqi commander, the Jordanian Mussab Al Zarqawi, ended in his death at American hands and saved Baghdad. Two years ago, President Barack Obama ordered US forces to shake the dust of Iraq off their boots.
Now the Americans are back – only now they are not US soldiers but jihadi fighters of al Qaeda, fighting to overrun Iraq and establish an Islamist state there.

Al Qaeda has made big advances in its preparations for a leap on Baghdad. It is engaged in cutting off the Iraqi capital’s sources of fresh water and blowing up the main bridges connecting the city to western, eastern and central Iraq.
When Deputy Prime Minister Saleh al-Mutlaq visited the water mains Friday, April 11, to see about repairing the system, al Qaeda ambushed his convoy and he barely escaped with his life. His bodyguards were less fortunate

“Dewy-eyed Foolishness”
» Rand Paul’s Foreign Policy: For the Situation Room or the Dorm Room?

Paul’s belief that the Iraq War may have been about padding a corporate bottom line echoes charges of “war profiteering” that have been a staple of the Left.

If we launched the Iraq War for corporate profits, we have a poisonously corrupt government that is a threat to world peace. If we caused Japan to react angrily with ill-considered sanctions prior to Pearl Harbor, as Paul said in 2012, perhaps we were reaping what we sowed in what is usually regarded as one of the most notorious sneak attacks of all time. If we are guilty of tweaking Russia while it secures a traditional sphere of influence, as Paul said when the Crimea crisis first broke out, it’s no wonder that Vladimir Putin lashes out.

You can hear in all this a note of the blame-America-first libertarianism embraced by some Paulite thinkers and writers.

» The Roots of CAIR’s Intimidation Campaign

[Brandeis sides with a spawn of Hamas over a champion of women’s rights. ]

… while blatant summonses to jihad might stir the faithful in Islamic countries openly hostile to Jews, they were not going to fly in America — and even less so in an America whose financial heart had just been shaken by the jihadist bombing of the World Trade Center. The Brotherhood’s approach in the U.S. would have to be more subtle.
… Now more than ever, they needed what HLF’s Shukri Abu Baker called “a media twinkle.”


In the U.S., Hamas was now perceived as the principal enemy of the popular “peace process.” After all, its charter explicitly called (and continues to call) for Israel’s annihilation by violent jihad. Therefore, its known supporters — the Muslim Brotherhood, the Palestine Committee, the IAP, and the others — were tainted in the American mind as terror-abettors, hostile to U.S. interests. As one attendee urged in Philadelphia, “We must form a new organization for activism which will be neutral, because we are placed in a corner. . . . It is known who we are. We are marked.” The new entity, by contrast, would have a clean slate. Maybe it could steal a page out of Arafat’s “hear what I say, don’t watch what I do” playbook. The new entity’s Islamism and Hamas promotion would have to be less “conspicuous.” It would need to couch its rhetoric in sweet nothings like “social justice,” “due process,” and “resistance.” If it did those things, though, it might be more attractive . . . and effective. A Muslim organization posing as a civil-rights activist while soft-pedaling its jihadist sympathies might be able to snow the American political class, the courts, the media, and the academy. It might make real inroads with the transnational progressives who dominated the Clinton administration.


With a network of organizations and CAIR as its public-relations face, Islamic supremacists have the foundation in America they have always craved. No matter how much care went into its construction, even they must be shocked at how well it has worked.

» NEW EDICT FROM THE CHURCH OF GLOBAL WARMING: GET POOR, AND CUT DOWN ON THE COW FARTS

… the latest stern admonitions from the United Nations to knock off all that prosperity, before the wrath of the Angry Sky Gods descends upon us.

How are we supposed to develop and deploy the miraculous carbon-scrubbing technology, if we force the advanced nations of the West to cut sharply back on economic growth? Don’t buy this nonsense about “cutting at least slightly into economic growth,” because there is a zero point zero percent chance that China, Russia, or the developing nations are going to hamstring their industrial efforts in the name of global warming. If these people are serious, they’re going to have to drag the only part of the world that heeds their commands into a pre-industrial environment, in order to get the global carbon reductions they’re talking about.

Increased efficiency? You mean like the way people in cold climates freeze to death when their government-mandated wind farms fail to generate the promised electrical output? Or when clouds keep the solar panels for working properly? I guess the only reason we keep forcing ourselves to use those cursed fossil fuels is because we like the smell.

» EARTH DAZE

A few years back, we were going to be killed by global cooling, overpopulation, pesticide residues, West Nile virus, bird flu, Y2K, cellphone radiation, mad cow disease, etc. Now it’s global warming.

the IPCC is not just a panel of scientists. It’s an inter governmental panel. It’s a bureaucracy controlled by the sort of people who once ran for student council and are “exhilarated by the prospect of putting the thumb of the federal government on the scale.”


“The amazing number that most people haven’t heard is, if you take all the solar panels and all the wind turbines in the world,” says Lomborg, “they have (eliminated) less CO2 than what U.S. fracking (cracking rocks below ground to extract oil and natural gas) managed to do.”

That progress occurred despite opposition from environmentalists — and even bans in places like my stupid state, New York, where activists worry fracking will cause earthquakes or poison the water.

» WHAT THE LEFT DID LAST WEEK

Totalitarianism is written into the left’s DNA.


The left and right are divided by their views of morality, politics, society, religion, the individual and the very nature of America.

The left seeks to, as candidate Barack Obama promised five days before his first election, “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”

That is what the left is doing. There is almost no area of American life in which the left’s influence is not transformative, and ultimately destructive.


–The left-wing directors of Mozilla, the parent company of the browser Firefox, compelled their CEO, Brendan Eich, to resign after he refused to recant his support for maintaining the man-woman definition of marriage …

–Brandeis University rescinded its invitation to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, perhaps the world’s foremost activist on behalf of women in the Islamic world. Hirsi Ali, an African woman born into a Muslim family and raised Muslim, who now teaches at Harvard, was scheduled to receive an honorary degree at the forthcoming Brandeis graduation ceremony. Brandeis rescinded its invitation after protests led by a Muslim student and the Council on American-Islamic Relations, an Islamist organization, erupted over Hirsi Ali’s criticism of the way women are treated in many parts of the Muslim world.

–The University of Michigan canceled a showing of the documentary “Honor Diaries.” The film features nine women who are either Muslim or come from a Muslim country. They speak about honor killings, female genital mutilation, forced marriages at young ages, and the denial of education to women in Muslim communities.

–Six weeks ago, a University of Wisconsin student released a video he had made of a guest lecturer in the freshman general education course “Education 130: Individual and Society.” The lecturer, the political and organizing director for Service Employees International Union Local 150, delivered a diatribe, with obscenities, against conservatives, whites and Republicans. Last week. When confronted with the evidence that classrooms at their university were being politicized, the faculty of the University of Wisconsin reacted with indignation — at the student who made the video. And then the faculty passed a resolution demanding that the university ban recording any of its classes.

–Today is the cutoff date for public reactions to the California Supreme Court’s ethics advisory committee’s proposal to forbid California judges from affiliating with the Boy Scouts, which the left deems anti-gay.

….
This was just one week — and only selected examples — in the left’s ongoing transformation of America.

De Blasio is making a wager with the lives of New Yorkers. He should read Suras 9-14 of the Koran.

The fact that thousands of New Yorkers were killed in the name of Allah by devout Muslims inspired by what they heard at mosques and that millions of Muslims worldwide believe that they can gain access to paradise and 72 virgins by slaughtering infidels means nothing to Mayor de Blasio, apparently.

» Bureau Of Land Management Versus Cliven Bundy Post Mortem

… There are several takeaways from this affair. First of all, the main stream media is dead. The reports of conditions on the ground were given to us by blogs, alternative media, email and social media like Facebook and Twitter. The main stream media still hasn’t caught up. Perhaps in a month of two some large news publication like The New York Times or The Chicago Tribune will come out with an expose on Harry Reid’s evil in this affair, but don’t bet on it, and even if they do, it will be a month too late.

… Mike Vanderboegh has harped on a theme, that being “We won’t fire the first shot. We will shoot in self defense.” Sure enough, it almost came to that, but not quite. The militia who did show up held their composure and did remarkably well. No one took wild shots, no one escalated the situation, but a strong message was sent.

That said, this is far from over.

Time after time and on issue after issue, Democrats have made promise after promise to the people they were elected to serve which have come up empty. With no record of accomplishment to run on in November, congressional Democrats and President Obama will face a day of reckoning that could very well return control of the Congress to Republicans and neuter the remaining two years of Obama’s tenure in the White House.

Faced with such an unthinkable reality, the Democrats marked the 50th anniversary of passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 not by hailing the progress we have made as a nation but by resorting to the despicable act of accusing their political opponents of racism to preserve their hold on power in Washington, D.C.

The subversive plan was spelled out in hundreds of pages of founding archives that the FBI confiscated from a Brotherhood leader’s home in the Washington suburbs after 9/11.
Translated from Arabic, the secret documents listed a number of Brotherhood front organizations — some of which just happen to make up the newly formed USCMO.

Obama’s proposed replacement for Sebelius is Office of Management and Budget director Sylvia Matthews Burwell, who has no experience or expertise in Human Health Services whatsoever, but has a long history of sycophantic service to the Democrat party – demonstrated mostly by cooking the budget books, stonewalling Congress, and issuing the orders to barricade the WWII Veterans Memorial (and other open air national monuments) during the preposterous “government shutdown.”

With that kind of experience, erecting barricades between Americans and their health care should come as easily to her as it did to her predecessor.

Corroboration could cause allegations against anti-gun California State Senator Leland Yee, for attempting to broker illegal arms deals, to pale in comparison, particularly since Sharpton is a national figure with the ear of the administration and a national voice via his opinion show on MSNBC.

Assuming their sting activities are over so the FBI can no longer dismiss inquiries using an “ongoing investigation” excuse, this would appear to be the type of law enforcement operation that cries for oversight hearings. If Sharpton did what Curington alleges, and if he was given a pass due to political connections, it would be in the public interest to determine why, who authorized it, and if anyone in the administration through the Department of Justice had a hand in ensuring no charges would be filed.

» For Attorney General Eric Holder, Justice is for Democrats only

Now in his sixth year as attorney general, Holder has increasingly tilted the department in an ideological direction. It’s one thing to emphasize President Obama’s legal priorities. It’s quite another to decide not to enforce certain federal laws — such as the ban on marijuana — or urge state attorney generals to refuse to defend local laws on same-sex marriage. Legal changes are achieved through legislation, not through a sudden whim not to enforce them. No other attorney general has acted in this manner.

… when you call Holder out on his biases and selective enforcement, he cries racism.
… His only respect for the law is his belief that he and President Obama are above it.

At one point, the protesters were even told “one more step and you’re dead,” but the group kept coming, eventually walking easily through the line of federal agents and SWAT members who obviously didn’t have the courage of their convictions.


For years, the Obama Administration, through its Department of Homeland Security, has been arming and armoring federal, state and local agencies, allegedly for national security. At the same time, it has made multiple unsuccessful efforts to remove guns en masse from citizens’ hands.
At the Bundy Ranch Showdown, the federal government learned a couple of things: first, that Americans aren’t giving up their guns because they know that they are the last line against a tyrannical government; second, that your average American law enforcement agent will not fire upon a group of fellow Americans without a far better reason than a bunch of cows and some baloney about an endangered tortoise; third, that many folks still understand that government gets its authority from the people, not vice versa.
I imagine the top circles of the Obama Administration are livid about how things turned out.

Lest ye forget, it hasn’t even been a year since the last time citizens defied a spiteful government:




Not to mention approximately a quarter million Connecticut owners of [now]illegal guns who have told their government to kiss ole Zeke.

A recent Rasmussen poll found that 59% of GOP voters say that Republicans in Congress are out of touch with the Party’s base. I suspect that’s because the base is more conservative than its elected representatives. Conversely, Democrats are quite happy with theirs.

… The internal debate within the GOP is showing up in commentaries among its pundits. It reflects to some degree the fears of its establishment elites who have managed to serve up John McCain and Mitt Romney, both of whom lost because they waged campaigns devoid of any serious criticism or confrontation with liberalism.

With the help of the mainstream media, these themes are constantly repeated. Meanwhile, cities and states run by Democrats are going bankrupt thanks to their devotion to spending and alliance with public service unions. You could line up the agendas of the Democratic Party and the Communist Party USA side by side and find very little difference.

Unfortunately, there are voices in the GOP that sound more like Democrats than Republicans. The most visible to emerge is Jeb Bush …

» The “Assault Weapon” Rebellion

The Malloy regime expected Connecticut residents to register somewhere between 372,000-400,000 firearms, and roughly 2 million firearm magazines that held more than 10 rounds before January 1.

What they got instead was defiance.
… The development has left the government stunned and unsure of how to respond, and has driven the editors of the anti-gun Courant into a sputtering rage.
… Malloy’s staff seems to grasp their terrible predicament a bit better than the hotheads of the Courant. Sending 1,120 Connecticut State Troopers on SWAT-style raids against more than 80,000 suspect “assault weapon” owners could not possibly end well.

Especially now that we’ve seen what happened when a Bureau of unelected tyrants sent their armed stormtroopers to confiscate a handful of cows in Nevada. That didn’t go to dang goodly, did it?




~~ images via SSI: Courage is contagious, defiance is contagious, victory is contagious.

Cuomo faces an even bigger registration problem in New York than Malloy did in Connecticut because many of New York’s sheriffs are in near open revolt against the SAFE Act, and have stated publicly that they will not enforce it. While they have been less publicly vocal, New York State Troopers have quietly indicated that they, too, will do as little as possible to enforce the law.

What will Cuomo do then? He has the option of following Malloy’s lead and just remaining silent.
Unfortunately for Cuomo, he’s never shown the ability.

Six of the Democrats who signed the letter face challenges this year: Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Mark Begich of Alaska, Mark Pryor of Arkansas, John Walsh of Montana, Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Mark Warner of Virginia.

The Keystone XL pipeline has emerged as an election-year dilemma for Democrats.

Considering the subject of Hagan’s campaign ads (so far), it appears she has only her greenie-creds left to tout. Her sudden support for XL would nix even that if her voter-bots happened to come-to long enough to look around.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday that the review of the pipeline “needs to run its appropriate course without interference from the White House or Congress.”

So, the course that the review has been running the last five years against that interference is to start afresh now? Carney certainly has a talent for contradiction.

» Obama Budget Lays Groundwork for Universal Gun Registry

This year’s Obama budget shows how the administration is trying to quietly create the infrastructure for a universal gun registry.

In proposed “Program Increases” for the FBI, Holder has this to say:
“This program enhancement will double the capacity of the existing NICS [National Instant Check System] system. These expansions are vital in ensuring that the NICS system can support a Universal Background Check requirement, which is expected to double gross NICS transactions.”

It may have escaped the Attorney General’s notice, but the Democrat Senate defeated his Universal Background Check requirement.
So, in effect, Holder’s asking for $100 million and 524 personnel to implement a program Congress rejected.

» Republican Quits Gun-Control Group, Says It’s All Bloomberg

Mark Boughton, who’s also running in a crowded field of GOP candidates in the Connecticut gubernatorial race, told the Connecticut Mirror that the focus has changed from illegal gun trafficking to broader gun controls.

“It’s really become about Bloomberg instead of going after illegal guns,”
… Boughton conceded that his link to the group – Bloomberg has shelled out millions to candidates who support gun control – has riled gun owners.

I was a strong supporter of the rights of law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen in Connecticut,” he said. “This remains my position today.”

I expect an elected official to be aware. I expect them to be able to recognize an enemy and treat it appropriately.
Bloomberg and his merry band of happy gun-banners have always been easily identified as enemies of the Constitution – it has always been readily apparent to anyone with a single molecule of situational awareness that MAIG’s goal was to criminalize ALL gun ownership.
A republican mayor that just now decides that maybe he shouldn’t have been involved with Bloomberg’s disarmament of American citizens and insists he’s always supported gun rights?
No. huh-uh. Too late, ole Hoss. You’ve already shown us that you’re either too stupid to be trusted with power or just another liar. Either way, unfit to govern … go home and shut up.

» How to Assist Evil

The 20th century turned out to be mankind’s most barbaric. Roughly 50 million to 60 million people died in international and civil wars. As tragic as that number is, it pales in comparison with the number of people who were killed at the hands of their own government. Recently deceased Rudolph J. Rummel, professor of political science at the University of Hawaii and author of “Death by Government,” estimated that since the beginning of the 20th century, governments have killed 170 million of their own citizens. Top government killers were the Soviet Union, which, between 1917 and 1987, killed 62 million of its own citizens, and the People’s Republic of China, which, between 1949 and 1987, was responsible for the deaths of 35 million to 40 million of its citizens. In a distant third place were the Nazis, who murdered about 16 million Jews, Slavs, Serbs, Czechs, Poles, Ukrainians and others deemed misfits, such as homosexuals and the mentally ill.

We Americans ought to keep the fact in mind that Hitler, Stalin and Mao would have had more success in their reign of terror if they had the kind of control and information about their citizens that agencies such as the NSA, the IRS and the ATF have about us. You might ask, “What are you saying, Williams?” Just put it this way: No German who died before 1930 would have believed the Holocaust possible.

Democrats are so interested in putting old news behind us that they’re shopping a new report on Bush-era CIA interrogations to the very same media that can’t figure out why anyone would still be hung up on the Obama Administration sending an American diplomat into a terrorist meat grinder without adequate protection, then lying repeatedly about why he was killed. We have to put Benghazi behind us so we can focus on the burning issue of terrorists getting rough treatment from a CIA program that doesn’t exist any more!

I invite you to imagine this is a Republican scandal, and the very first testimony from the man in charge of the CIA at the time said people on the scene told him it was a coordinated terrorist attack, not a spontaneous protest… but he ignored them because they couldn’t conclusively prove there was not a protest taking place.

It’s a topsy-turvy world when the people who pushed the story of the mythical video protest are given bottomless credit for their keen judgment, but the people who were actually there and said it didn’t happen are supposed to prove it didn’t happen, even though it didn’t. The whole scandal has been handled by ignoring the Administration’s copious reasons for not telling the truth, and the documented fact that they didn’t tell the truth, to construct elaborate scenarios in which it’s possible they might have been honestly mistaken.

The plot thickens, as the Democrat point man for obstructing investigations into one of the biggest scandals in American history – ranking Democrat Elijah Cummings (D-MD) – is actually part of the scandal.

Issa’s patience has long been stretched by Cummings’ shameful antics during these oversight hearings, which we can now view an effort to prevent scrutiny from turning his way.

One of the big unanswered questions is whether any confidential tax information, protected by federal law, was disclosed to Cummings and his staff by the IRS officials who responded to their request. Such information was unquestionably pulled by the IRS people and passed between them by email; we need to know if any of it was forwarded to Cummings staffers. If so, that’s a federal crime, punishable by fines and jail time.

Provoked by the predictable collapse of the farcical negotiations forced by Secretary of State John Kerry on the Palestinians and the Israelis, I wish to make a confession: I have no sympathy—none—for the Palestinians. Furthermore, I do not believe they deserve any.


In Syria, untold thousands of fellow Arabs are starving, while according to the United Nations official on the scene in South Sudan, 3.7 million people, amounting to one-third of the population, are now facing imminent death by starvation.

… ever since the day of Israel’s birth in 1948, they have never ceased declaring that their goal is to wipe it off the map. In all other contexts, this would be called by its rightful name of genocide and condemned by all decent people. Yet—here we go topsy-turvy again—for any and every step Israel takes to defend itself against so shamelessly evil an intent, it is the Israelis who are obsessively condemned at the U.N. and by the increasingly strident propagators of what calls itself “anti-Zionism” but is also increasingly indistinguishable from anti-Semitism.

» What Does the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Need with 96 Armed Agents?

That’s right, NOAA — the folks who forecast the weather, monitor the atmosphere and keep tabs on the oceans and waterways — has its own law enforcement division. It has a budget of $65 million and consists of 191 employees, including 96 special agents and 28 enforcement officers who carry weapons.

Note the part about “folks who forecast the weather”? As in the folks who last year predicted above average temperatures for the 2013-2014 winter?
With consideration for their rate of accuracy on that, and juxtaposing it against the rate of accuracy of Farmer’s Almanac couldn’t we just do away with 190 of NOAA employees and change the job description of the one remaining to just reading the Almanac?

Of course, that one employee can keep its automatic assault rifle with grenade launcher and even wear a badge if it wants to.

And I use the word ‘it’ in reference to that employee because within any government administration consisting of one employee, we all know that one employee would be a Spanish-Only-speaking, transgendered, black female with one eye, in a wheelchair, wearing a hijab, whose great-great grandma was 2% Cherokee.

Oh, did I offend someone with that one? Well, I sure as heck meant to and …. oh, wait I forgot to read the rest of the article.

Oftentimes, the armed agents appear to be used more for intimidation than law enforcement.

And you will be more inclined to cooperate.

No, not really. Personally, I’d be more inclined to call the Sheriff down on them. You know, my County Sheriff, the only law enforcement officer in the country that has the actual constitutional authority to even ask to come on my property, armed or not.

The FBI is severely constrained by statute as to what kind of crimes for which they can intervene. The EPA, Education Department, NOAA and most other agencies have few, if any restrictions and can bend and shape the law to interpret a mandate just about any way they wish.

» Deepening divide over climate change sparks fierce debate

The report stands in stark contrast to the U.N.’s latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report of March 31, which predicts “severe impacts” from climate change, but which was toned down from earlier IPCC reports that predicted an array of global catastrophes resulting from the proliferation of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere.

The IPCC reports have, through the years, stood as the unassailable foundation for the Obama administration regulatory policy on global warming. “The debate is settled. Climate change is a fact,” Obama said in his 2014 State of the Union Address.

“The dirty little secret is , we are now at 17 years and 8 months of no global warming,” … “Their models have failed year in and year out, ”

“Carbon dioxide does not cause weather to become more extreme, is not causing polar ice and sea ice to melt, is not causing sea level rises to accelerate,”


All of this is leading Congressional doubters to further question an array of EPA regulations the president has unleashed to maneuver around Congressional resistance to cap and trade and other carbon-mitigating legislation.

» Holder: Gun Owners Could Be Made to Wear Bracelets

Attorney General Eric Holder sees a day where gun owners wear bracelets that communicate with the gun, allowing only the gun owner to use the weapon.

Really? No, not really. Holder does not see the day because the day does not, will not exist.
First, because the technology doesn’t currently exist.
Second, because when it does exist, the technology would increase the price of a $400 gun to something completely unaffordable by over 90% of Americans who would currently purchase a gun.
Third, because anybody who has paid minimum attention to the way this administration does business knows, without doubt, that any gun that operates strictly under the control of government sanctioned/designed electronic technology would be utterly useless for the purpose for which the 2nd amendment was actually written.

When the government is actively and purposefully using bureaus of unelected jackboots (EPA, ATF, IRS, NSA, the DOJ for pete’s sake) to terrorize liberty-minded citizens, do you really think that same government wouldn’t insist on something as devious as a turn-off switch on all the electronically-controlled guns of the people? Wouldn’t that be a tyrant’s dream come true?
Seriously … come on, think.

Fox News reports the Justice Department has requested $382.1 million in increased spending for gun safety for the 2014-2015 fiscal year. That would include $2 million for gun safety technology grants.

I’m not the only one capable of seeing through that devious liar ….

… such guns could also be tracked using GPS, it’s not unfair to note that when the Department of Justice was in a position to track guns it knew were being trafficked to violent criminals, it instead turned a blind eye and allowed thousands to “walk” to Mexico.


until Eric Holder comes clean on exactly what he knew and when he knew it about Operation Fast and Furious … the bracelets he ought to be most concerned about are the dumb kind, that don’t recognize their user and that operate with a key.

She didn’t think that President Obama doesn’t care, she said. “It is just, come on, do the right thing!” The visual impact of Obama discussing the tragedy at a political fundraiser is “uncaring, arrogant, wrong,” she said, punctuating each adjective.

» Islam Is What Happens When Civilization Loses

The problem in the Middle East isn’t a lack of democracy. It’s the lack of anything to be democratic about.

What the Arab Spring truly showed is how little national identity mattered as democracy and the fall of governments demonstrated that there was no national consensus, only the narrower one of class, tribe and institution. It’s not something that Americans should be too smug about. The left’s efforts are reducing the United States to the same balkanized state in which there is a black vote and a white vote, a rich vote and a poor vote, but no national identity that transcends them. We too are becoming ‘Sunnis’ and ’Shiites’. It’s no wonder that Islam finds the post-American United States and the disintegrating territories of the European Union fertile ground for its work.


How do Muslims settle religious arguments with each other? The same way they settle them with Jews and Christians. That is what we are seeing in Syria.

This isn’t civilization. It’s the complete collapse of civilization. At its barest minimum, civilization is co-existence. Islam is the opposite of co-existence and of civilization. Its sheer age only means that there is even more in its past to fight over.

» Why Did Kerry Lie About Israeli Blame?

Kerry knows very well that the negotiations were doomed once the Palestinians refused to sign on to the framework for future talks he suggested even though it centered them on the 1967 lines that they demand as the basis for borders. Why? Because Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas wouldn’t say the two little words —“Jewish state”—that would make it clear he intended to end the conflict. Since the talks began last year after Abbas insisted on the release of terrorist murderers in order to get them back to the table, the Palestinians haven’t budged an inch on a single issue.

Kerry doesn’t want to blame the Palestinians for walking out because to do so would be a tacit admission that his critics were right when they suggested last year that he was embarking on a fool’s errand. The division between the Fatah-run West Bank and Hamas-ruled Gaza has created a dynamic which makes it almost impossible for Abbas to negotiate a deal that would recognize the legitimacy of a Jewish state no matter where its borders were drawn even if he wanted to.

Kerry probably thinks no harm can come from blaming the Israelis who have always been the convenient whipping boys of the peace process no matter what the circumstances

» America’s New Anti-Strategy

Over the last five years, those long-held strategic principles have largely been ignored or rejected by the Obama administration. There is real doubt today that the U.S. would risk coming to the aid of South Korea, Japan, or Taiwan. If Putin tomorrow sent a division into Estonia to deliberately provoke an Article V NATO response, he might well not get one — and therefore may well try. If Iran tested a bomb next year, the U.S., for all its now-trite “unacceptable” and “outrageous” talk, would likely shrug and assume that a nuclear Iran was analogous to a nuclear Pakistan or Israel and thus no big deal. Our allies assume that since 2009 American friendship is mostly rhetorical or ceremonial, but no longer exists in the sense of any serious guarantees.

The U.S. might intervene again against a dictator, but only if it could do so by leading from behind, with other powers in the front line, and only if the target were weak and clearly tottering. So, for example, we followed France and the United Kingdom into Libya, once it was evident that Qaddafi’s days were numbered, while steering clear of unilaterally punishing Syria for WMD use, although thousands more had been killed in Syria than in Libya, by an Assad who had much more fight in him than did Qaddafi.


Rogue nations — Iran, North Korea, Venezuela — now have little fear of the United States. In fact, in their hubris they go out of their way to insult the U.S. by gratuitously sending to the U.N. a former hostage-taker of American diplomatic personnel, or promising to send another missile over our allies’ air space, or lecturing the U.S. president on his country’s sins.

13 yr old suspended in Vernon NJ for Twirling a pencil

Seventh-grader Ethan Chaplin has been home from school for two days after getting in trouble in math class. He says he was just twisting around a pencil with a pen cap on it when a student behind him yelled, “He’s making gun motions, send him to juvie.”

Note that the argument is not whether anybody should give a hoot if the kid made a gun gesture, but rather it seems to be whether or not Chaplin even used the pencil to make a “gun gesture”. He says he was just twirling it, others say he made the diabolical gun-gesture. Nobody, on either side, said “who cares?”

It is now foregone conclusion that a gun gesture, whether it be with a pencil, poptart or simple fingers, is a life-threatening situation that has to be punished.
Now we just argue about the definition of gun gestures. How many fingers does it take to make a gun barrel? One or two? Or does one finger denote smaller calibers like .22 to .25, while two fingers represent 9mm and .45?
Do finger calibers over 0.3 inches in diameter call for more days of suspension?
Does a poptart gun serve as a revolver or a semi-auto? If a student slips a chinese finger trap over one finger does that count as an un-taxed silencer?

This is the utterly stupid predicament faced when leftist screeching alarmism is left unchallenged and not answered with a deafening round of Shut Up!

In addition, the Federal assault weapons ban is significant and positive, indicating that murder rates were 19.3% higher when the Federal ban was in effect.


States that have restrictive “may issue” or “no issue” concealed carry laws between 1980-2009 had a 10% higher gun murder rate than those states that required no permit at all, or who had “shall issue” permitting.

Restrictive concealed carry laws appear to lead to more deaths.

This study went unnoticed by leftist anti-gun bigots. Some kid made a gesture with just the middle finger and they all went into huddle to figure out what kind of gun was being used – consensus is leaning towards mortar.

» Military Bases Are Gun Free Zones…Once Again, THAT’S The Problem

Like most cowardly mass shooters, the MOMENT someone armed stood up against him he shot himself. Unfortunately the unnamed female MP officer didn’t arrive until after Lopez racked up 19 causalities.

Rep. Steve Stockman (R) of Texas summed it up best when he introduced legislation that would allow both service members and federal civilians to carry their personal weapons on military installations after the Navy Yard shooting:

“Our disarmed military bases are vulnerable targets for terrorists, as we saw in Fort Hood and the Navy Yard. Despite that, soldiers trained to use guns cannot carry on base. The result is two mass killings where defenseless soldiers had to watch as their friends were murdered.”

Stockman will continue to be proven a sage until the members of the US Military are no longer disarmed and left like lambs to the slaughter at the hands of madmen.

How many more soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen have to die because of gun control?

» Before 1993, there were no mass shootings on U.S. military bases

NBC News in Washington listed shootings at U.S. military bases since 1994 in the wake of the most recent attack on Fort Hood, but did not delve into any that may have happened before 1993.
Why not?
The article failed to make the obvious connection that before 1993, mass shootings on United States military bases did not exist.
It is unconscionable that soldiers who are tasked with keeping Americans safe are thwarted by politicians from keeping themselves safe.

You Get What You Tolerate
Example in four parts:

Part 1 assholes tolerated
Part 2 (0:30) Tolerance begins to deteriorate
Part 3 (0:44) Tolerance disappears
Part 4 (1:14 forward) Tolerance gone, so are assholes

See how that works?

» Liberal Fascists Call for Broader Purge of Thought Criminals

Remember that the people they are seeking out for destruction gave money years ago to a proposition that was passed by a majority of California voters, who were then overruled by the courts, starting with gay activist judge Vaughn Walker. Prop 8 is long dead; the liberals who control the judiciary have spoken. The explicit objective now is to hunt down people who have privately held views in the past that are currently considered inconsistent with leftwing ideology.

This isn’t about promoting homosexuality as an end in itself, or only the tiny percentage of Americans who are pushily homosexual would be driving it. This is a major battle in the Cultural Marxist war to replace America with a country where no thought crime (as defined by ultra-Left oligarchs) will be tolerated.

» IRS agents’ testimony: NO progressive groups were targeted by IRS

IRS agents testified before Congress that the agency’s political targeting did not apply to progressive groups as Democrats and the media have claimed …
… No evidence exists that the IRS requested additional information from any Occupy Wall Street group.


“[T]he Administration and congressional Democrats have seized upon the notion that the IRS’s targeting was not just limited to conservative applicants,” the report states. “These Democratic claims are flat-out wrong and have no basis in any thorough examination of the facts. Yet, the Administration’s chief defenders continue to make these assertions in a concerted effort to deflect and distract from the truth about the IRS’s targeting of tax-exempt applicants.”

“[T]here is simply no evidence that any liberal or progressive group received enhanced scrutiny because its application reflected the organization’s political views,” the report stated.

America does have a gaping infrastructure crisis, but fixing this problem wouldn’t cost a penny of taxpayer dollars, never mind hundreds of billions of dollars added to the debt, so the White House probably won’t be interested.

if you visit the drilling sites in Williston, N.D., you discover an amazing phenomenon: At night, this little energy town of fewer than 30,000 people lights up like Manhattan on New Year’s Eve. All these lights are flares burning off the natural gas that was drilled that day. Why on earth would the drillers do that? Because they want oil, which sells at $100 a barrel, as opposed to natural gas, which is now so abundant that it’s cheap.
But why don’t they sell the natural gas too? Because they don’t have the pipeline capacity to bring it to the markets where it’s needed. So they are burning off an energy source, without capturing the power. What a waste.
The pipelines aren’t getting built, simply because the government isn’t letting them get built. It has been an eye-opening experience to watch liberals block an infrastructure project — the Keystone XL pipeline

» Government Power and Evil

We are not a violent society. We are a society sheltered from violence. No one in Rwanda spends time wondering what kind of man would murder people. They probably live next door to him. If your neighborhood is diverse enough, you might be unfortunate enough to live next door to war criminals all the way from Eastern Europe to Africa.

Guns are how we misspell evil. Guns are how we avoid talking about the ugly realities of human nature while building sandcastles on the shores of utopia.

It’s not about the fear of what one motivated maniac can do in a crowded place, but about the precariousness of social control that the killing sprees expose. Every murder tears apart the myth that government is the answer.

… this isn’t really about stopping shootings; it’s about the belief that the problem is individual, not evil, and that if we make sure that everyone who has guns is following government orders, then control will be asserted and the problem will stop.

It’s the central planning solution to evil.

» Thousands of 2nd Amendment Rights Supporters Attend Rally at CT State Capitol

The government of Connecticut is on course for a showdown of sorts with gun owners because tens of thousands of the state’s gun owners have defied the new gun laws that effectively banned 100 types of semi-automatic weapons.

Michael Lawlor, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s criminal justice advisor, said back in December that fewer people than expected had registered weapons under the new law.
Lawlor warned, “gun owners should take seriously the consequences of ignoring the law. Disregarding the registration requirements can carry felony charges in some cases, which can make Connecticut residents ineligible to own guns.”
… By mid February, Lawlor had backed down somewhat
… He suggested the now familiar tack of “extending the deadline” and holding an “outreach campaign” to encourage submissions

From the commets:

* Michael Lawler, the Governor’s criminal justice advisor, stated, “Gun owners should take seriously the consequences of ignoring the law.”….I say, you leftists should take seriously the consequences of trampling on our Constitutional rights….

* … and take seriously what will happen if you try to TAKE them with force. It will be met with force.

* It’s fascinating that these individuals believe that rights that were preserved as a recourse against their power, are subject to their good will and approval for their exercise, isn’t it?

* the time is here when we must now stop TALKING ABOUT WHY the 2nd Amendment was included in the Constitution and
start USING IT FOR WHY it was included in the constitution

» EMPIRE STATE REBELLION: Hundred of Thousands of New Yorkers Refuse To Register So-Called “Assault Weapons” Ahead Of April 15 Deadline

Due the the tyrannical actions of Andrew Cuomo and his allies in the state legislature, New York residents are required to register an estimated 1 million firearms designated as “assault weapons” under the NY SAFE Act by April 15.

Unfortunately for the Governor and his allies, it appears that the open revolt of most of the state’s law enforcement leaders against NY SAFE—who correctly view the law as a blatantly unconstitutional assault on the state constitution and the Second Amendment—means that noncompliance is overwhelming.

    “If you don’t have the troopers and you don’t have the sheriffs, who have you got? You’ve got Andrew Cuomo pounding on the table in Albany,”

Andrew Cuomo has demonstrated that he has the political power to ram through unconstitutional laws in Albany. What he’s also unwittingly exposed is his complete inability to enforce them.

    The city of Chicago registered more homicides than any city in the nation in 2012, surpassing even New York — despite the fact that the Second City has only one third as many residents as the Big Apple.


On September 12, 2013, the Illinois Supreme Court ruled a law passed in Illinois which effectively banned carrying a loaded weapon violated the Second Amendment and struck it down. In January, the Illinois State Police began issuing concealed carry licenses.

The usual suspects predicted dire and cataclysmic outcomes …

When new crime statistics were released covering the first quarter of 2014 an amazing thing happened …

» Gun prohibitionists exploit Fort Hood for Washington campaign

In the gun rights community, it’s called “dancing in blood,” and yesterday the Initiative 594 campaign donned its ballet slippers, using the tragedy at Fort Hood that Fox News earlier today reported at “sparked a new debate about gun control and the defense budget.”


One gun rights activist who received the e-mail wrote to this column noting, “Somebody needs to call Zach and tell him (the gunman) passed a background check.”

True enough; it has been widely reported, including by KYTV, that, “Lopez passed a background check when he bought the handgun at Guns Galore near Killeen, Texas, according to U.S. law enforcement officials. He was found to have no criminal history that would disqualify him from the purchase, and the gun store did what was required, according to law enforcement officials who reviewed the records.”

As always, it boils down to two facts:
- Laws do nothing to impede the lawless.
- The only defense against bad guys with guns is good guys with guns.
Period. Every time.

Furthermore, gun manufacturers are already responding to the law by designing guns that carefully circumvent its specific requirements.

The President, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid (with no small help from Justice John Roberts) take away our health care, and we allow it. They take away our insurance, and we allow it. They take away our doctors, and we allow it.They charge us thousands of dollars more a year, and we allow it. They make legal products illegal, and we allow it. They cripple our businesses, and we allow it.They announce by fiat that we must ignore our most deeply held beliefs – and we allow it.

» Rep calls for President to ban “assault weapon” imports due to Yee case

Citing the fact that now-suspended California state Sen. Leland Yee allegedly planned to help bring illegal guns into the country, Rep. Jackie Speier, (D-CA), is calling for the President to ban the import of ‘lethal assault weapons.’

Legal gun importers make a living, illegal gun smugglers make a killing. It works that way because importers obey law while smugglers, by definition, ignore or gleefully trample on law. Yee, a staunch gun control advocate, was making a whole heap of money smuggling illegal arms. Not legal arms, but illegal arms.

Speier, another staunch gun control advocate, and supposedly offering a solution to the smuggling of illegal arms, wants to outlaw currently legal arms. Increasing the number of types of guns that are illegal will somehow stifle the smuggling thereof?

That must be some sort of quantum-logic requiring mathematical skills far beyond my comprehension. OR, Speier is a smoke-blowing, lying, gun-snatching bitch who is convinced that her constituents are stupid enough to accept her interpretation of reality … and they are.

Meanwhile, adding to the collective stupid…
» Brady Center rescinds Piers Morgan ‘Visionary Award’ after gun sales skyrocket

“We thought Piers Morgan would be a worthy recipient of our Visionary Award given his fervent passion for gun control,” Brady Center President Dan Gross said of his decision to take the award back. “But in reality he had the opposite effect. Within two years of honoring him, handgun sales skyrocketed across the county. I guess people find him grating or something and purchased guns just to spite him.”

And they actually believe that millions of Americans spent substantial portions of our income to purchase guns, that according to the idiots at Brady, we don’t need … just to piss off some Brit idiot whose show we don’t watch and whose opinion carries less weight than a popcorn fart.

Then again ….

“I was watching a game and next thing I know Piers Morgan is on TV telling me I need to donate money to the Brady Campaign or I’m just a drone easily manipulated by the gun lobby,” Schneider said. “It was really condescending. After that I went out and bought one gun for me and one for my wife. We’ll probably never even buy ammunition for them. I just had a strong desire to buy a gun after listening to that guy whine and berate me.”

Merd have lorcy. So there are, at least, a two [a]mericans that are just that stupid. They didn’t have enough sense to appreciate their Right to self-defense until a total imbecile told them they didn’t have that right.
So now they have guns … and no ammo. They have expensive rocks that have to be oiled.

It’s a testament to the miracle of the human body that people this profoundly stupid can still walk. But it doesn’t speak well of our culture that these walking stupid have as much influence on national policy.

Not taking a job seriously inevitably means a job done badly. And when that job is as much symbolic as it is practically, disrespect can be fatal. After all, in the old days, even if one disliked the candidate, one still “respected the dignity of the office.” But what happens if the president demeans the office so much there’s nothing left to respect?

Today three things crossed my computer screen addressing the fact that Obama is a lightweight who’s so protected by the media bubble that he and his followers actually think that, in serious times, his lack of seriousness is a good thing.

The school is hosting a symposium on gay topics that at one point included a lecture titled, “How to be a lesbian in 10 days or less.” The event comes a month after the House of Representatives cut $17,142 from USC Upstate’s budget for assigning freshmen to read an essay book on coming out gay in the South.

“If they’ve got extra money sitting around to promote perversion, obviously they’ve got more money than they really need,”

If legislators start picking on one group, they could move onto others, said Ryan Wilson, director of S.C. Equality, which advocates for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender South Carolinians.

“These legislators say they are concerned about taxpayer dollars,” Wilson said. “What about my taxpayer dollars?”

“Taxpayer dollars ” are intended to fund the government in execution of its constitutional obligations. Teaching our children how to masturbate, diddle children, suck dick, and surgically alter their genitals is not one of those obligations.
By not funding ridiculous instruction, government is not picking on anyone. Gays and lesbians are still free to do whatever they want to each other. Refusing to pay for it is not the same as outlawing it.
Put it this way:
The percentage of college students that eat their own boogers is probably as high as the LGBT population. Should we shuck a few thousand dollars to fund a booger-cooking class?

» We Don’t Care About Same-Sex Marriage; We Do Care About Freedom of Speech

This is not about the issue of same-sex marriage. I have personally taken the position that the government should get completely out of the business of marriage. If two men or women want to live together and get married through any private institution of their choosing, I’m fine with that; I hold the same position with regard to one man and one woman. And TruthRevolt is obviously not attempting to crack down on pro-same-sex marriage companies – Google is pro-same-sex marriage, and yet we recommend them as an alternative browser to Firefox.

This issue is far larger than the small and parochial same-sex marriage issue. It is about the chilling of political freedom by small sects of motivated political players. It is the same issue as A&E’s suspension of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson over his comments paraphrasing the Book of Corinthians. It is the issue of McCarthyistic blacklisting and voter intimidation and ultimately, the issue of utilizing power to silence dissent. In America, we typically prize freedom of speech. And while OKCupid and company may be exercising their market power in fully legal fashion, they’re certainly advocates for quashing freedom of speech.
