Media Follows Obama´s Orders
to Mock Skeet-Gate Skeptics

Brietbart Big Journalism, by John Nolte

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.

You know they had to stage this photo (if it´s even real) when they started their anti-2nd Amendment push.

And if they think Alinsky Rules to ridicule work for them on us, then it can work for us right back at´em.

Are we skeptics? No...... just conditioned to know that nothing from these people is believable, except their dishonesty.

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.

Anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of shotguns knows this is a staged shot.

The way our Doofus is holding the shotgun and the way he is aiming and the way it sits against his shoulder is all wrong.

I do not expect our media buffoons to understand this. Their lack of knowledge of anything gun related is well-known.

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.

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!

"History repeats itself, and that´s one of the things that´s wrong with history," observed the late world renowned barrister Clarence Darrow.

Mr. Darrow was absolutely correct. The world has seen this kind of "group think insanity" before..."Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Fuhrer."

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.

See Mark Steyn as an example.

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.

We don´t need to accuse the WH of photo-shopping this image to ridicule it, the Prez made that possible all on his own.

And forget where he´s aiming, he ain´t even HOLDING the thing right. The butt is braced against his shoulder joint, not in the "pocket" between the joint and the clavicle. Just look at the pic.

Bet that leaves a mark.

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.

My two cents:

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.

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.

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.)

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.

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.
