Some of you younger folks might not remember this, but there was a time when the media questioned Power. No, really, once upon a time, the media saw it as its duty to be forever questioning and skeptical of Power, especially when Power was in pursuit of more power. For example, Obama is attempting to grab more power for The State and criminals by way of gun control laws that infringe on our Second Amendment civil rights.
Obama said he "did skeet shooting" so the WH had to scramble. I don´t think the photo could possibly be photoshopped, and if it is Obama behind the gun he is probably taking target practice. You don´t shoot at skeet straight on like that. But he said he shot skeet so the WH had to lie, as always, to cover for him.
Skeeters, also known as mosquitoes by our nickname challenged media friends, are among the most deadly insects on the planet because of their disease carrying capabilities. Does this mean the administration/press are going to bomb us with DDT?
Yes, the media used to question Power. However, they now think their job is to be the voice of the little guy--- the people whom they claim have no voice otherwise. So we are fed social justice stories 24/7 ad nauseum and in this way the news is totally distorted. The minority viewpoint or struggle is transformed into the majority opinion because that´s all the viewers see, day after day. Whether or not this is intentional is a separate topic. Besides, it´s nearly impossible to prove intent.
I remember the slogan "Never trust anyone over 30" !! In the 60s college students had the brains to distrust everyone, especially the gov´t...just ask Bill Ayers s/ Today´s college students have been indoctrinated to be non questioning robots of the state. Too lazy to seek out the truth for themselves.
...you´d think after the embarrassment of getting caught with an amateurishly photoshopped birth certificate they would have learned to do a better job....oh wait...what did Evita screech....."What difference does it make?"
Just in case some lowinfos are reading this, we need to always post this truth:
The only reason to take guns away from a population is to allow the government to take over without contest. The only reason. It is not about "violence" or "the children". It is to take over the country. Does anyone read history, does anyone understand the past?
Anything else said is just BS. It is about the power to overcome.
Where can I get a recoilless shotgun like Obambi is using. THe shirt is neatly tucked in without a bit of wrinkle from a sudden forceful movement (like the recoil of the weapon). Shirt sleeves gently hanging tot he arms as he fires away. No movement of the head, shoulder, torso, nothing. Perfectly recoilless. Great gun!
With all the technology the government has access to, one would think they would be able to produce better stuff than this. It is in human nature to mock what is really dumb, stupid, bad, etc. Hence, our attitude towards the media and libs in general.
Scary thing is, I can see where the WH pulls a Canada on us and makes a law that would regulate mocking him as a hate crime.
Perhaps they need to find someone to do their dirty work, such as Photoshopping, that actually knows what they are doing. They don´t seem to realize in the "real" world people actually know what they are talking about & know silliness when they see it.
Recall the first fake BC they released wasn´t even the same format as a real Hawaii BC from that time. And the later document they showed still had photoshop-editing layers that weren´t ever ´flattened´ to conceal the fact it had been modified. This photo includes features that give it away as a fake, too.
It almost seems like they´re intentionally leaving evidence of fakery obvious, perhaps to elicit accusations of fakery to facilitate the Alinsky-inspired isolate-and-marginalize strategy to destroy political opponents.
If that wasn´t their strategy to begin with, that seems to be the script that´s playing out.
Look at the funny thing in the end of the barrel, look at the smoke pattern. Would it be any different if someone shoved a roman candle in the barrel and set it off? Doesn´t that smoke look like black powder? (No offense intended) That puff of smoke at the top looks like it is slowly wafting away not like it was blasted out of a port.
O.K., I waited a day to see if someone would say it. Done my duty, going dark.
That looks more like a gas operated rifle that any shotgun I´ve ever seen. Point. I´ve never seen a shot gun with what looks like two barrels. The bottom one IS used on many gas operated rifles. Also, to shoot a round of skeet requires a shotgun capable of firing two rounds, one right after the other. Thats done during the high house, low house segment when a birdie is launched simultianous from both houses and the shooter must locate them and break them with a single shot each. And I´ve spent my life handling many types of guns. Done a lot of hunting when I was younger too.
Meanwhile, while everyone is focused on photoshopping their own versions (guaranteed because the hoi polloi were told specifically and with sternly wagging finger to not muck about with the photo, Obama and [fill in the blank] are busy [fill in the blank] while we are all beautifully distracted.
And, #8, the great irony is that those teaching today´s students to accept without question what the government feeds them are the very same people, now in their 60´s and 70´s, who told us never to trust anyone over 30. What´s that old saying about power corrupting?
When´s the last time anyone saw a cropped image of a skeet contest? Where are the traps? What was his score? I won´t believe anything until a wide angle shot is produced. Better yet some video. I want to see puffs of red clay. The fact that he has fired a shotgun means nothing. BTW, I´ve seen him bowl.
#26 - "Point. I´ve never seen a shot gun with what looks like two barrels."
I believe the photo´s a fraud. But to play devil´s advocate, what would #26 say a classic "double barrel shotgun" is, if it doesn´t have two barrels? (In fairness, though, the two are usually SIDE-BY-SIDE, not in a stacked configuration like that.)
I would lay odds that the gun used to stage the photo is a Browning Citori American Sporter. At least they went first-cabin in staging the photo. Mine with the 30 inch barrel, 12 Ga. ran about three bills.
Considering how high the buttstock is agaist Obama´s shoulder, it´s likely the first time he ever fired a shotgun. Likely the last time, too.
That is,if he fired it at all. The angle *is* wrong for skeet or trap, that´s a hell of a lot of smoke for any modern shotgun shell, and I personally have never seen a shotgun with only one side ported (and usually shotgun porting is with a dozen or so small holes, not one big slot).
But hey, *we´re* the nutcases for having some idea what we´re talking about.
The media are complicit in this Treason. I say, when the dust settles after Prezdint Skeeter is gone, that we try, convict, and hang all of them - just to start the recovery of our country with a clean slate.
Just like in everything else the pinhead doesn´t know what he´s doing. His scrawny shoulder would be broken holding and shooting it that way. Plus, he´d surely miss whatever it was he´s trying to hit. He is an embarrasment.
LONDON — Scores of flights were delayed or canceled at Britain´s busiest airports Saturday because of a technical problem at a main air traffic control center. National Air Traffic Service, which controls the crowded airspace over England, said it was having a problem switching between nighttime and busier daytime operations at its control center in Swanwick, southern England. Spokeswoman Juliet Kennedy said the glitch was preventing staff opening new control positions to deal with busier daytime traffic, meaning the service was struggling to handle the volume of flights. "At the moment we don´t know when we will be able to
Big Brother may be watching you. But Glenn Greenwald is watching Big Brother. That´s not a bad take on how the 46-year-old constitutional-law attorney turned crusading journalist turned thorn in the side of the NSA might describe his mission. At least in part. Greenwald is doing more than just watching. By combing through the tens of thousands of classified NSA documents leaked to him by Edward Snowden -- and publishing in newspapers around the globe report after report on the secretive agency´s mass-spying activities -- he´s got the whole world watching too.
The Maryland official who directly oversaw the rollout of Maryland’s health insurance exchange resigned Friday amid continuing technical problems that have hampered the state’s online enrollment efforts.After an emergency session Friday night, the board of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange accepted the resignation of Rebecca Pearce, its executive director, and thanked her in a statement for working “tirelessly and with tremendous dedication” for more than two years. In recent weeks, the lagging enrollment and online glitches have embarrassed the administration of Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) and become a political liability
Earlier this week, Onyango "Omar" Obama, uncle to Barack, said in a deportation hearing that he stayed with his nephew in Cambridge in the 1980s. The White House had to that point said that the president had never actually met Omar, who was arrested for drunk driving in 2011. Now, two years after the arrest brought denials of any sort of relationship from the White House, the president is admitting that, yes, he briefly lived with his uncle Omar before heading to Harvard Law School in the ´80s. "The president first met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law
Technicians in the Washington area raced up to a month-end deadline set by the Obama administration to make the troubled federal insurance website work for a majority of users, but officials acknowledged they still faced a raft of problems that could take weeks or more to fix. By Saturday evening, technicians completed a major hardware upgrade, adding computing, storage and database capacity to their data center, said one person familiar with the situation. "There was a big install and it worked," the person said. Contractors believe the upgrades will improve the system´s performance and let it handle more visitors, but the person
The once-sleepy town of Williston sits on the confluence of the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers in the US state of North Dakota. Five years ago, Williston had a population of 12,000 and was slowly dying on its feet – an agricultural hub marked out from the plains only by the grain silos that stand silhouetted against the big North Dakota skies. The fall-out from a brief oil boom in the mid-1980s had left the town with sky-high debts and a main street filled with empty shops and peeling facades. Young people looking for jobs skipped town at the first opportunity. Today, Williston is
The CIA used a secret base at Guantanamo Bay nicknamed ´Penny Lane´ to turn some of al-Qaeda´s most dangerous terrorists into double agents, US officials have admitted.Inmates languishing under Guantanamo Bay´s harsh regime were offered cash rewards, "hotel" style rooms and even pornography if they agreed to help the CIA track down and kill fellow al-Qaeda operatives. Instead of Guantanamo´s spartan cells, they would be transferred to cottages equipped with private kitchens, showers and televisions, as well as their own patio. A handful then signed agreements to work for the CIA, under which they were released and told to hook up once
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
