Feinstein: Reinstate
assault weapons ban

Washington Times, by David Sherfinski

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/24/2013 11:08:58 PM

Sen. Dianne Feinstein rolled out sweeping legislation that would ban more than 150 types of military-style semiautomatic rifles on Thursday, kicking off the congressional debate on a new assault-weapons ban that both sides say faces a steep uphill climb on Capitol Hill. The measure is by far the most ambitious of the number of gun-control bills introduced in the wake of the school shootings in Newtown, Conn., last month. “This is hard to do. It’s not easy to do,” Mrs. Feinstein, California Democrat, said. “I think if the people in [a] red state want their representative

Doesn´t anybody in Washington know the shooter in Newtown DIDN´T carry any AR into the school?????? It was reported BY THE LOCAL NBC AFFILIATE that the young mental case had an AR in the trunk of the car but didn´t have it on him during the commission of his crime.

PS - "AR" does not, nor did it ever mean "ASSAULT RIFLE". It was and is a designation for ARmalite...

Get it right!

It seems to me that other senators should weigh in on this bill, now what DF has put it out there. I am waiting breathlessly for the response from our Texas senators.

Dittos #1 - I just heard the same news report that NBC News is now admitting that only handguns were found inside the Sandy Hook school. The so-called assault rifle was found in the perpetrator´s car, NOT in the school. This puts the Big Lie to the Democrat´s war on rifles that look "scary" as a rifle had nothing to do with the shooting at the school. We just caught the DemocRATS using a big lie to try to get their agenda across and to interfere with our second amendment rights. Perhaps more stories will come out regarding this Big Lie by the DemocRATS in Friday´s news.

Whenever I hear someone like Feinstein or Schumer say that we (the people) don´t need assault looking rifles or high capacity magazines,I would like to tell them that they don´t need better healthcare than we do, so why do they?

You can bet that any Republican and a lot of Democrats who would vote for such an over reaching gun ban that would outlaw almost all modern semi-automatic handguns and rifles will be defeated in the 2014 primaries or the general election.

I own an SKS 7.62x39 rifle. For you unintiates out there, that´s basically a Chi-com version of the AK-47, but longer (making it more accurate) and with a fixed magazine. Well, ´fixed´ is in the eye of the beregulator. My fixed magazine holds 20 rounds. It can be re-loaded with a stripper clip (don´t know what that is? google it). I can put 20 rounds in it nearly as fast as a magazine change, using stripper clips. Which are way, WAY cheaper than magazines. My SKS has a Swedish ´hunting´ stock on it, which means it looks like a hunting rifle - which means it has no scary (to gun haters) black plastic (or polymer) stock, and no ´pistol grip´. The stock of is beautiful walnut, with an integral cheek rest, which makes it look more like a target rifle rather than a hunting rifle. The bayonet (and the mount) have been removed. It is perfectly legal, even under Feinstein´s new ´ban´. It looks like a beatiful gun with a walnut stock (which it is) with a 20-round integral (as opposed to detachable) magazine, which I can fire and reload as fast, with greater accuracy, than an AK-47, without the ´panic-inducing´ pistol grip. All perfectly legal now, and will be perfectly legal even if DiFi´s bill were to pass. But this gun is every bit as deadly, with as much firepower, as the AK-47 (which I also own). The cosmetics have been changed to make my gun less scary-looking to Di-Fi than any real AK-47 or AR-15.

Frankly, my dear, to paraphrase Rhett Butler, I don´t give a damn.

Until Feinstein surrenders her firearms, and her husband´s, and Babsy Boxer´s and her husband´s, I really don´t care what bills they pass.

Aren´t they lucky hypocrisy isn´t a crime in Washington...

What happened to America? When did it become a country run by Marxists, homosexuals, and privileged minorities? When was the Constitution abandoned and replaced with this awful mountain of federal laws and regulations that no one can know or understand? When did our children and young adults become so completely ignorant of history?

First lets define what we are banning.
From dictionary dot com:

assault rifle

a military rifle capable of both automatic and semiautomatic fire, utilizing an intermediate-power cartridge.

I believe rifles capable of full automatic and semi automatic fire are already banned.

Feinstein and Schumer and many other of our elected criminals want to disarm the American people before they wake up and realize that we have been taken to the cleaners. Both parties, but especially the Democrats, have spent us broke and are in the process of destroying the country.

USAID documents cite Hillary

Washington Times, by Guy Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/20/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article

For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
