Irony marks White House gun blitz
Morning Journal [Lorain, OH], by Tom Skoch

Original Article

Posted By:Harlowe, 1/13/2013 9:06:01 AM

Ironies abound when you look back over this past week’s White House effort to take firearms out of the hands of most everyone except the armed bodyguards of all the bloviating bigshots who think you’re too dumb or unimportant to have a gun to protect your family. At the order of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden’s taskforce held a couple of days of talks on various sides of the gun issue. (Snip) A White House presspool report that came to me quoted Biden supporting “universal background checks, not just closing the gumshoe loophole.” Gumshoe loophole?

They want to outlaw our weapons and at the same time Bam Bam grants himself armed protection for life!

Former Senator James Webb tried to enter the Capitol building with a 9mm pistol in his possession. He blamed his aide, and nothing happened to either of them.
One of dead ted kennedy´s armed guards tried to enter the capitol building carrying his UZI, and nothing happened to him.

(I worked an event at my university back in the early 1970s - not long after dead ted kennedy killed mary jo kopechne - and my dimwitted dean managed to get dead ted as a commencement speaker. dead ted had his own private security detail, and I had to work with them on the issue of security. And his main bodyguard told me that when dead ted spoke at the commencement, with 10,000 people in attendance, the bodyguard would rather that all 10,000 people in attendance die, rather than dead ted dying. Absolutely true story.)

Just read between the lines. It´s never about public safety; it´s about government control of the people.

Oaths to protect the Constitution of the United States ring hollow from the mouths of those whose actions do not live up to the oath itself.

Just read another article about the George Soros´ funded Center for (non)American Progress that has a Leftest Gun Grabbing List ready to go. So who will prove more powerful, the incredibly evil George Soros and his Flying Monkeys or the NRA and the American people?

Poster 6, James Holmes set off many alarms including a envelope full of disturbing materials he mailed to his psychiatrist who conveniently said she didn´t receive until after Holmes shot up the cinema in Aurora, CO. In the Lanza case the system worked, he tried to ourchase weapons but was denied. So he stole the guns from his negligent mother. Everyone is opposed to mental deficients having access to guns, but the far left obama could care less about safety for Americans. He just seeks to disarm law abiding Americans in the name of security. As another poster said a few days ago, "it´s not about guns, it´s not about gun control, it´s about control.´"

I don´t think there is a special ´bodyguard´ carry license, just the same old ´concealed carry permits´ that the rest of us can have, so I guess Feinstein, Schumer, Soros and the rest will give up their guns as well as their bodyguards!

Pelosi assists in Holy Week
foot-washing ritual
San Francisco Chronicle, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Harlowe- 4/18/2014 11:46:54 AM     Post Reply
To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Get Ready for the
Internet Robber Barons
Wall Street Journal, by Karl Borden    Original Article
Posted By: Harlowe- 4/2/2014 9:37:20 PM     Post Reply
Do you remember the original robber barons? No, they were not the great American industrialists/philanthropists of the late 19th century—men who were unfairly tagged with the moniker. I mean the originals: the German barons of the 13th century who controlled the Rhine River, which was the primary channel of commerce and communications for central Europe. Their castles overlooked the river, and they exacted tribute from every passing ship. The barons ignored customary "just" tolls, charged whatever the commerce would bear, exacted payment "in kind" from cargoes, and exercised power by controlling strategic territory.

Party of the rich: In Congress,
it´s the Democrats

WASHINGTON — Republicans are the party of the rich, right? It´s a label that has stuck for decades, and you´re hearing it again as Democrats complain about GOP opposition to raising the minimum wage and extending unemployment benefits. But in Congress, the wealthiest among us are more likely to be represented by a Democrat than a Republican. Of the 10 richest House districts, only two have Republican congressmen. Democrats claim the top six, sprinkled along the East and West coasts. Most are in overwhelmingly Democratic states like New York and California.

What´s going on at Air Force Academy?
God´s word vs. Pentagon´s word

The Restore Military Religious Freedom coalition, a group of two dozen like-minded religious liberty organizations, announced Thursday that they are ready to offer assistance to any Air Force Academy cadet who faces repercussions for writing Bible verses on their hallway whiteboards. The Air Force Academy admitted Wednesday that a cadet leader had to remove a Bible verse he had displayed outside his dorm room because it offended non-Christians and could “cause subordinates to doubt the leader’s religious impartiality.” The controversy started when a cadet leader posted a passage of scripture on his whiteboard with a quote from the

CLEVELAND,Ohio-- Secretary of State Jon Husted´s re-election mantra seems to be "If at first you don´t succeed in disenfranchising voters, try and try again. In 2012 Husted attempted to cut early voting access only to be sued by the Obama campaign and lose in court. He´s now back again making another attempt with the help of the state legislature and Governor Kasich. (Snip) This time around, Jim Crow bird feeder Husted is hiding behind saying he´s simply adopting a bipartisan proposal by the Ohio Association of Election officials. But it´s still clear to see what his and the state legislatures

COLUMBUS, Ohio - State lawmakers in Ohio withdrew legislation Wednesday that mirrors an Arizona bill that’s come under fire for protecting those who assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays. Republican state Rep. Tim Derickson and Democratic state Rep. Bill Patmon issued a joint statement citing concern over the bill’s unintended consequences. “The intent of (our bill) was to ensure Ohioans’ religious freedom by protecting their ability to freely worship and preventing any laws from burdening the free exercise of religion,” their statement said. “However, with the controversy that is occurring in Arizona,

Progressives takes lessons
from ‘Downton Abbey’
Washington Post, by George F. Will    Original Article
Posted By: Harlowe- 2/13/2014 10:45:11 AM     Post Reply
Many “Downton Abbey” watchers are nostalgia gluttons who grieved when Lord Grantham lost his fortune in Canadian railroad shares. There are, however, a discerning few whose admirable American sensibilities caused them to rejoice at Grantham’s loss: “Now perhaps this amiable but dilettantish toff will get off his duff and get a job.” This drama’s verisimilitude extends to emphasizing that his lordship had a fortune to squander only because he married an American heiress. By battening on what they disdained, this republic’s commercial culture, many British aristocrats could live beyond their inherited means — actual work being, of course, unthinkable.

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio
lack experience for 2016

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

   

 



 
Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

New York Post, by John Crudele    Original Article

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
