» Bay Area Law Enforcement Encourages Fighting Back Against Active Shooters
Where?! did they get such a remarkable idea? Who?! is the intellectual giant that spawned such novel insight?
Fighting Back! My God! Why has no human ever thought of this before?
And to think that this earth-shaking brain storm came from panty wearing San Franfreakshow!
So simple. So elegant …. Fight back. What will we think of next?
For the first time this morning, I’m proud of my country.
Taking his campaign for “common sense” gun control reform to its ground zero, Vice President Joe Biden announced yesterday that the American people are completely onboard with the administration’s proposed gun control policies.
That’s right. We are all there with you Igor … I mean, Joe …. except for the 80 million or so that bought new guns last week.
And the uncounted ones that completely wiped out ammo shelves across the entire nation …..
Not to mention the millions of Americans that sat at home and grinned while watching all the guns and all the ammo disappear into private homes – because they already have all they need and don’t have to go on emergency panic gun-buying binges.
So yea, Joe, except for the close to a billion of us whose thumbs are bleeding from loading hundreds of magazines … we’re onboard.
“You should all know the American people are with us,” Biden announced. “They should know. You all should know. There is a moral price to be paid for inaction.”
Careful there, Plugs, inaction may be the only reason you’re still alive.

» SAF win confirmed: Illinois has just months to create concealed carry laws, or defaults to constitutional carry
The Second Amendment Foundation today won a significant victory for concealed carry when the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals let stand a December ruling by a three-judge panel of the court that forces Illinois to adopt a concealed carry law, thus affirming that the right to bear arms exists outside the home.
In December, Judge Posner wrote, “The right to ‘bear’ as distinct from the right to ‘keep’ arms is unlikely to refer to the home. To speak of ‘bearing’ arms within one’s home would at all times have been an awkward usage. A right to bear arms thus implies a right to carry a loaded gun outside the home.”
Judge Posner subsequently added, “To confine the right to be armed to the home is to divorce the Second Amendment from the right of self-defense described in Heller and McDonald.”
If Democrats refuse to work with Republicans on “shall issue” permitting, then clever Republicans—if they exist in Illinois—can threaten to use parliamentary procedures to run out the clock, which expires in June. If that occurs, residents will have constitutional carry: any gun, almost anywhere, at any time.
What Real Presidents Sound Like
Democrat media markets the news as “background checks for most private gun sales”, but make no mistake about it.
Background checks for private gun sales would be equivalent to universal gun registration.
The sequester has forced liberals to clarify their conviction that whatever the government’s size is at any moment, it is the bare minimum necessary to forestall intolerable suffering.
It is…. inaccurate to accuse the Hysteric in Chief of crying “Wolf!” about spending cuts under the sequester. He is actually crying “Hamster!”
Batten down the hatches — the sequester will cut $85 billion from this year’s $3.6 trillion budget! Or: Head for the storm cellar — spending will be cut 2.3 percent! Or: Washington chain-saw massacre — we must scrape by on 97.7 percent of current spending! Or: Chaos is coming because the sequester will cut a sum $25 billion larger than was just shoveled out the door (supposedly, but not actually) for victims of Hurricane Sandy! Or: Heaven forfend, the sequester will cut 47 percent as much as was spent on the AIG bailout! Or: Famine, pestilence and locusts will come when the sequester causes federal spending over 10 years to plummet from $46 trillion all the way down to $44.8 trillion! Or: Grass will grow in the streets of America’s cities if the domestic agencies whose budgets have increased 17 percent under President Obama must endure a 5 percent cut!
North Carolina State Board of Elections and the Obama campaign conspired to register at least 11,000 people via the internet in violation of state law. This has been confirmed through records requests filed with all of North Carolina’s 100 counties. The counting is not yet complete.
North Carolina does not allow online voting, but according to Civitas, SBE staff authorized an Obama campaign website, Gottaregister.com, to use a web-based registration program. The SBE’s chief lawyer responded to the charge with a plainly disingenuous 1984-newspeak answer:
Wright repeatedly denied that the SBE allowed online voter registration, insisting that it was “web-based voter registration”[ii] instead, as if there could be a “web-based” process that wasn’t online.
…. As for the Obama administration, they have shown themselves over and over to be completely contemptuous of the law – from vote fraud to Fast-n-Furious; from Benghazi-gate to recess appointments and unconstitutional executive orders, the list is endless
So who does the incompetent buffoon LaHood want to furlough?
Not the paper-pushers. Not the bureaucrats in Washington. Not the bazillions in non-essential personnel. No. LaHood, conspiring with his union boss pals, is prepared to disrupt air travel — to sabotage it — to make these tiny cuts seem “devastating”.
I’ve got news for you, LaHood: we’re not stupid. The entire federal government — not the military and intel communities, the rest of you useless jackasses — could use a 33 percent downsizing. For the children.
Waiting for congress to act on this seditious threat? Waiting for the pussy GOP to make a stand?
How about just this once we take (THHO)Obama’s advice and say if congress doesn’t act we will. If congress doesn’t do their job we’ll punish them along with the petty sub-tyrants like LaHood.
And by punish, I don’t mean voting them out of office, a’k?
It’s been another bad week for union bosses and their henchmen occupying Barack Obama’s National Labor Relations Board.
Following last month’s U.S. Court of Appeals ruling that Obama’s ‘recess’ appointments to the controversial labor board were, in fact, unconstitutional, the fallout continues …….
“We know that hurricanes have declined, tornadoes have declined, floods have declined, and droughts have declined. That is why history has been redefined to start in the 1970s,” by the global warming alarmists.
Obama’s EPA is already in the process of imposing restrictive regulation of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions under the Clean Air Act. The impact of EPA’s CO2 regulation will be to sharply raise the cost of traditional energy sources — oil, natural gas, and coal — which will sharply raise the prices of electricity and gasoline. These are the energy sources that have powered the industrial revolution. Those price increases will effectively be yet another major tax increase on the economy of trillions over the years. That will only further destroy jobs, depress wages, increase poverty, and contract economic growth. Particularly devastated will be energy intensive manufacturing that Obama also touted in his 2013 SOTU.
Recent energy production breakthroughs have opened vast new vistas of booming, low cost energy prosperity for America. Such a vastly expanded energy industry would directly create hundreds of thousands of good paying additional jobs in the expanded energy industry itself ….
The notion that foregoing the enormous effective tax cut and job creation involved in developing America’s enormous natural energy resources, and instead imposing an enormous effective tax increase on the economy through soaring traditional energy prices, can drive strong economic growth, as Obama said in the SOTU, cannot be taken seriously. No rational person could believe such a gross self-contradiction. That is just boob bait to seduce the most gullible and credulous.
We’re told that we can’t have voter literacy tests because they’re racist. But can we at least have politician literacy tests? Otherwise we’re electing people whose defense is that they’re too stupid to know that crime is criminal.
Without politician literacy tests, every politician can just argue that he’s too stupid to be let out of the house. And in the Obama\Biden era that is no longer a disqualification for public office.
General McKiernan was fired for the same offense that General McArthur had been targeted during the Korean War: He had demanded competency from an incompetent Democrat.
…. The old-school general who had once said, “I don’t understand ever putting your men and women in harm’s way, without their having the full ability to protect themselves. That also means operating on actionable intelligence to defeat insurgents, and protect your forces. That’s how you keep your soldiers alive,” was clearly not the man for that job.
Now I am convinced. The guns have to go. I will throw all mine in the burn-barrel later today …. but first I’ll need to remove all the screws from them. I’ll be needing those to help hold my dignity, integrity and self-respect together.
Or do I need to turn those in too?
» Dem Senators look for someone to blame for Obamacare
…. you entrusted the building of a massive Jenga tower of subsidies and regulations to the legislative equivalent of a keg party and you’re surprised it’s not coming together perfectly.
Attempting to remake 1/6 of the economy is not an easy task, and if it seemed to you in 2009 that the federal government, renowned for its efficiency, might be biting off more than it could chew, congratulations on your early demonstration of common sense. Unfortunately, it probably won’t buy you health insurance. Now Democratic senators are noticing the same thing, and have already voted to completely abandon parts of the health care bill its critics told them were unworkable before the law passed— the 1099 reporting requirement, the CLASS Act, and the medical device tax (repeal still in the works, but backed by none other than Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-emonstrably Not Native American.))
There has been great concern about how Tyrant Barack Hussein Obama has been out there attempting to win the hearts and minds of our young through his twisted and un-American ideologies.
Synonyms for a tyrant are oppressor, dictator, bully, despot, persecutor.
