Posted By:JoniTx, 2/2/2013 10:56:30 AM

Former White House senior adviser David Plouffe took to Twitter to preemptively mock those who might believe the photograph of President Obama shooting a firearm is fake: [Tweet] White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer also added to the teasing from his official Twitter account: [Tweet] On Saturday morning, the White House released the photo of Obama shooting at clay pigeons at the presidential retreat at Camp David in Maryland.

Why not just stop at White House mocks? That´s all they do when anyone at anytime questions them. And heavens knows they need to be questions. How many photoshopped pictures have they blessed us with?

I thought when you were shooting skeet, you were following the clay up into the air, not shooting straight. Looks more like target practice.

What the photo doesn´t show is Boehner is on the other end, running away!

This is so laughable. #1--Who in his right mind is going to believe that this photo was taken BEFORE the poseur-in-chief opened his yap about skeet shooting? #2--Someone correct me if I´m wrong, but don´t you shoot skeet in the air? What´s 0 doing pointing straight downrange? Idon´t know what they are trying to do here--this trumped-up job won´t convice any Obama doubters, and his brain-dead supporters don´t need convincing anyway. And the folks in the mushy middle have doubtless changed the channel to Honey BooBoo by now.

The only possible time a gun might be held that low would be when shooting from stations 1,2,6 or 7 if the target had flown way past the center stake. A rookie might do this but either the high or low house would be in any photo of this. This is 100% staged or photoshopped. Mock that, you morons.

1. Can´t see his face
2. No mom jeans
3. Big time bad hold. If this is real, he only fired once because he dislocated his shoulder.
4. Where is the recoil (from the gun, not from his image)?
5. Shouldn´t he be leaning INTO the shot?
6. How come Secret Service didn´t show him correct way to hold and fire a shotgun?
7. I agree with shooting at skeet on a skeet nest protecting skeet eggs.

I agree with #5, 7, & 8. We have no idea what 0bama is shooting at in that photo (op), or whether he is only pulling the trigger and aiming at nothing. I´ll believe it when I see a video of him loading the gun, aiming at something we can actually see, and firing.

"3. Big time bad hold. If this is real, he only fired once because he dislocated his shoulder." I´m guessing he only fired once and the huge purple bruise just looked normal.

"4. Where is the recoil (from the gun, not from his image)?" Highly secret, super effective Gov´t compensating ports."
"5. Shouldn´t he be leaning INTO the shot?" Why? Like all of his sporting endeavors, Zip is an epic poser and really gets nothing right.

Posed.

He may have even pulled the trigger but his stance, hold and shouldering are all those of someone whose entire experience with firearms is from saturday matinees.

What I find interesting is the incredible highspeed film used to capture the exact moment of firing. You see the smoke as it erupts, fraction of a second later it is all gone. You even see the smoke coming through the barrel porting. But what is really astonishing is the wad.

Look closely at the end of the barrel, see the yellowish extension of the top barrel? Blow up the photo 1000% on your viewr and look at it. It is the plastic shotwad about a half inch from the gun barrel. You can even see the slight deflection as the gun barrel is rising after the wad left the barrel.

How di the photographer get such an exquisite shot in such high resolution and detail using a hand held camera shooting at normal outdoor photography speeds.

He didn´t, he was using high speeed equipment on a tripod and all set up to capture the image.

100% thought out and posed. The photo is shot at an angle that could only be achieved by being in front of the firing line. Anybody know any skket club that woud allow that?

#41, and others, Shotgun porting is gettin ubiquitous on the clays range. It is pretty dubious if it does anything. It is supposed to reduce recoil and barrel jump but I dount it does much for either.

On an over/under it doesn´t even accomplish that since to reduce jump it needs to port to the top. Blow up the picture and you will see the extensive porting on both barrels. Especially the lower one, ther must be 20 holes, maybe more.

Does make the whole thing look funny though.

He could be shooting at clay pigeons. That would explain the angle. Skeet is a particular type of shooting and the angle would be upward more than the pic shows but I think the claim is that Obama is shooting at clay pigeons.

Having shot a few thousand rounds, I don´t see anything to complain about.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

Democrats target 30 House

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2014 2:28:49 PM     Post Reply
Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

Note: This post was inspired by the #DropDropbox campaign. On March 20 the University of California, Irvine, announced that Barack Obama will give the commence address to its class of 2014. This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship. It makes sense that UC Irvine would want an accomplished, high-level, well-connected individual as their commencement speaker. There is no doubt that Barack Obama is an

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
