The April 15 deadline to register firearms deemed “assault weapons” under Governor Cuomo’s NY SAFE Act has been met by hordes of New York Gun owners not rushing to register firearms, and the ceremonial burning of registration forms.
… owners of the firearms affected by the ban are choosing open defiance. Non-compliance of the ban is expected to be between 90%-99%
… 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.
… It is impossible to parody American liberalism, because every example you would invent to mock them is in fact something they have already done.

… For those of you keeping score at home, this is Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers. “I only regret I didn’t do more” bombing Bill Ayers. The Designed-A-Nail-Bomb-Like-The-One-The-Boston-Marathon-Bombers-Used Bill Ayers. The guy whose nail bomb would have killed new Army recruits at Ft Dix, except his idiot Weather Underground pals blew themselves up instead–that Bill Ayers.
The same students who–no joke–couldn’t say for sure they would oppose HITLER speaking at Brandeis (yikes!) are now happy to ban a feminist currently living under a death threat imposed by religious extremists. But for Brandeis, this story is just getting good.
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.

Two federal judges on the U.S. Sentencing Commission said Thursday that Attorney General Eric Holder stepped “outside the legal system” and exceeded the authority of the executive branch …
The U.S. Attorney General, the nation’s lawyer of lawyers, either doesn’t know the law or has no regard for it.

USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of “institutionalizing policies” favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law.
This development bears careful monitoring in light of the U.S. Brotherhood’s recently exposed goal to wage a “civilization jihad” against America that explicitly calls for infiltrating the U.S. political system and “destroying (it) from within.”
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.
