Gun Control: Our future president in 2008 called for "a civilian national security force that´s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded" as the military. Should the "bitter-clingers" be worried? As Andrew Malcolm has noted on these pages, the Department of Homeland Security has been buying lots of ammo, enough by one calculation to fight the equivalent of a 24-year Iraqi War. Some have speculated about a link between the stockpiling between candidate Obama´s off-prompter campaign remarks about a national security force and the stockpiling by DHS
Why aren´t the Republicans asking questions about this threat? Too stupid? In agreement with Democrat totalitarians? They don´t believe in anything? Too stupid? Where are the "conservative" Republicans?
People like me have no representation in DC. "My" party, the Republicans, have no voice. They worry more about being invited to the proper cocktail parties. They worry about being criticized by the MSM.
I know there are some really good people in DC. And I don´t know what pressures they´re subjected to. I can only imagine it´s intense.
But I think about NH´s license plate motto: Live Free or Die.
I think it´s time for my representatives to embrace this saying politically. Live Free or Die politically.
I was at a dinner party a few nights ago and one of the men said that he talked to a GA politician, don´t remember which one, although he was a Repub. The pol said that with all the employees this covered, it came out to about 667 bullets per employee.
I flat don´t believe that but had no knowledge with which to back my suspicions.
Just like the marine who is talking about his OBL kill, anyone who knows anything have signed non- disclosure agreements. How he thinks there will be no retribution, I have no idea. But if you know and leak, they can and will pinpoint you, and you can say goodbye to your life outside bars. That is, of course, unless you are an "authorised leaker".
If his BFF, Bill Ayers, the infamous Weatherman bomber, firmly believed that millions who could not be converted to the Marxist Utopian philosophy should be murdered, why would you think his opinion would be any different?
I read that since B ho was elected in 08 some 35.4 Million firearms have been purchased by Americans. We already have a well armed national security force. It is the milita and we are all part of it. obama is not going to get his brown shirts.
I still dont think it will be much of a contest to whip these clowns. How tough can it be to beat someone who holds a 9mm crunchenticker sideways and shoots from above his head? Obama picked the whong brownshirts. Maybe he could call them the dirtyshirts.
People, the 1.6 BILLION rounds purchased by the Dept. of Homeland Security are NOT all HANDGUN rounds...many millions of them are for .223 or 5.56 weapons which are the M-16 type of weapons except these are FULLY automatic capable (just flip the selector switch further for FULLY auto) and are true ASSAULT weapons. Nevertheless,´why´ is the question. I asked my District Congressman, Ralph Hall, his office called me during the weekend and the phone number to call back was so fast I still can´t make it out. I also contacted (e-Mail) my Federal Senators...Mr.Cornyn´s office initially said the figures are exaggerated. I will call them all again and press them on this issue. They don´t know, don´t care, or don´t want to say...Right now I don´t know which is the right choice.
DHS may have a lot of ammunition, but Congress is never going to appropriate the money for Obama to have his own personal National Security Force, that´s just not going to happen, as whatever congress critters who voted for that would immediately become unelectable.
Has anybody besides myself pondered why TSA agents seem to be showing up, unbidden, at railroad stations and bus depots and major sporting events, among other places? Evidently they are even running roadside checkpoints ("May I see your papers, please"). Someone tell Gov. Jan Brewer.
A week ago Jesse Jackson Senior was imploring the Won to send armed TSA agents to Occupy Chicago to put down the gang violence that has left so many Windy City teens dead.
Your Bamster national security force is already on the job.
Political Correctness: Its force structure decimated by sequestration and budget cuts, the Marine Corps considers exchanging its proud and honored look for hats similar to the gendarmes who direct traffic in Paris. If sequestration´s annual spending cuts continue past this year, the Marine Corps will lose 8,000 in troop strength, Commandant Gen. James F. Amos told the Defense Writers Group in June. But those who remain will at least be fashion-conscious if a proposal for changes in their dress headgear goes forward. Men and women in the Marines
Junk Science: Al Gore, patron saint of climate fraud, argues with Australia´s prime minister that its brushfires are not caused by warming and that the record shows the koala bear, like the polar bear, is quite safe. They were the largest Australian bushfires in a populous region in recorded history, consuming half the state of Victoria, claiming 12 lives and destroying an estimated 1 million sheep and thousands of cattle. And they occurred in February 1851 during one of the coldest years on record. Bushfires have been part of Australian life for centuries
Energy: The Golden State´s governor has signed legislation that regulates but does not ban the technology that has sparked an energy boom nationwide — and which may yet restore the state to solvency. If any state were to ban hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as fracking, the process that releases oil and natural gas trapped in porous shale formations, one would think it would be California. Gov. Jerry Brown, who leads the government in a state that hosted Solyndra and embraces endangered bird-chopping wind turbines,
Scandal: A deadly battle involving grenades between a drug cartel and Mexican police has added to the toll of lives taken with weapons trafficked by suspects that U.S. officials watched but did not stop. The same Obama administration officials responsible for letting thousands of weapons walk into Mexico and right into the hands of drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious also passed on several opportunities to arrest and prosecute an arms smuggler who was busy supplying the cartels with hand grenades. This according to a report by Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News, the one reporter
Corruption: The crash-prone government health-care site asks applicants if they want to register to vote as they try to sign up for ObamaCare. By sheer coincidence, a plurality of the uninsured are likely Democratic voters. Call it Motor Voter on steroids — the piggybacking of voter registration to an otherwise unrelated government function. Those trying to navigate Healthcare.gov, a website that looks and functions as if designed by the department of motor vehicles, are being asked if they want to register to vote just in time for crucial 2014 midterm elections
Regulation: From lost jobs to fewer hours to premium hikes that would make a loan shark drool, Barack Obama´s home state is a case study in why the first rule in health care reform, as in medicine, should be to do no harm. The president and his cohorts in the media have long accused Republicans of being out of touch with ordinary people. Remember the concocted story about President Bush the elder being so out of touch he was unfamiliar with supermarket bar-code scanners? But it´s President Obama who´s out of touch with ordinary people
Health Care: In a stunning admission, our Health and Human Services secretary admits ObamaCare is part of the fundamental transformation of America away from a free market in anything to a nanny state on steroids. Maybe Kathleen Sebelius was being sarcastic, or maybe she thought it might be a good way to reach the "young invincibles" who feel they had better things to do with their money than enroll in ObamaCare. But her recent appearance on Jon Stewart´s show on Comedy Central went about as well as ObamaCare´s train wreck of a rollout.
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
