Feinstein Gun Control Bill to
Exempt Government Officials

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:starbaby, 1/25/2013 8:27:17 AM

Not everyone will have to abide by Senator Dianne Feinstein´s gun control bill. If the proposed legislation becomes law, government officials and others will be exempt. "Mrs. Feinstein´s measure would exempt more than 2,200 types of hunting and sporting rifles; guns manually operated by bolt, pump, lever or slide action; and weapons used by government officials, law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel," the Washington Times reports. The Huffington Post confirms these exemptions, and adds that guns owned prior to the legislation becoming law will be permissible, too.

So a county commissioner will be exempt, but a returning veteran will not? I anticipate a lot of people being deputized in the future!

We need the exempted guns for similar reasons to why they think they need them. So we citizens should all be exempted from her unconstitutional law.

Unconstitutional ´laws´ aren´t laws.

And ´We the people´ decide which laws are constitutional, not unelected bureaucrats.

But you better be willing and able to use violence to retain your rights these domestic enemies (aka libtards) plan to erase.

Of course Poster number two; They want protection from irate citizenry, don´t you know. Of course, if push comes to shove, we will know whom to ambush when the next revolution comes - their armed guards. Even a rock can take out an unprepared armed man, and then...

However, it would be better for all concerned if we kept our arms instead of losing them and attempting to regain them, Government power has always been, ultimately, at the point of a gun.

And that is why we are armed. Unless we WANT to go the way of Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia, or Red China, we better arm up and seriously contemplate protecting OUR Liberties as the Second Amendment was designed for. Limiting the tyranny of our Government - at the point of a gun, which leaves the power of Government in the hands of the People, not some clique of self-described Elites.

It seems to me there is substantial, unmet market demand for the following:
- incorporate a municipality in the rural weeds of a western state with a sole corporate citizen/taxpayer (think I´m crazy, a hotel/camp ground owner outside Zion National Park in Utah did just that)
- organize a police department
- start "deputizing" police officers at $500 a whack, thereby entitling them to very broad conceal carry rights and broad exemptions from gun restrictions.

The devil is always in the details. Besides the outright ban on the named firearms, they also intend to ban just about every other modern semi-automatic handgun and rifle that can accept a magazine that could possible hold more them 10 rounds of ammunition that has a military attribute such as a hand-grip which would encompass just about every semi-automatic handgun and rifle produced and sold in America today.

John Kerry: Russia has until Monday

Washington Examiner, by Susan Crabtree    Original Article

Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance. Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region. If Russian-backed lawmakers in Crimea go through with the

Graham Offers to ´Help´ Kerry

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, R, offered his help with the GOP House of Representatives on a stalled Ukraine assistance bill in a hot-mic moment with Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday. After Kerry finished an appearance before the Senate Appropriations Committee, microphones caught Graham telling Kerry: "Hey John, good job! Let me know what I can do to help you with [GOP House Speaker John] Boehner." The House passed Ukraine assistance legislation earlier this week, but Senate leaders rejected it on Wednesday, making for a familiar bit of congressional gridlock.

Although the government shutdown continues, it appears President Barack Obama and the White House are not getting any closer to negotiating with Republicans. A quotation from an unnamed senior administration official in today´s Wall Street Journal explains why. Said a senior administration official: "We are winning...It doesn´t really matter to us" how long the shutdown lasts "because what matters is the end result." With this view, it explains why President Obama won´t agree to any piecemeal legislation that would keep Veterans Affairs and NIH open during the shutdown. And it explains why President Obama would rather cancel his Asia trip

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain hired the Syria analyst in favor of U.S. intervention who was fired for fabricating her Ph.D., Foreign Policy reported. Elizabeth O’Bagy, formerly of the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), will start Monday as a legislative assistant in Sen. McCain’s office. McCain told Foreign Policy that “Elizabeth is a talented researcher, and I have been very impressed by her knowledge and analysis in multiple briefings over the last year.” The senator’s office said they would not make any further comment on O’Bagy’s employment.

A leaked April 2013 slideshow from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said 21 federal agencies, including the Departments of Agriculture and Education, are working on an educational program to implement Obamacare. That reference prompted the senators´ curiosity. "At a time federal agency budgets have been tightened by the sequester and the White House has warned of cuts to basic programs,

How much more will Americans take? The “fundamental transformation” of America proceeds apace. The erosion of our freedoms and traditions, once incremental and barely perceptible, accelerates daily. Armies of bureaucrats commanded by political ideologues remarkable mainly for their galactic incompetence intrude on ever more aspects of our lives — aspects both large and small. They tell us what light bulbs we’re allowed to use and how much water we may flush. They stick swabs in our mouths to collect our DNA and order us to buy health insurance we don’t want.

There were times this past week when it seemed like the 19th-century Know-Nothing Party had returned to Washington. President Obama insisted he knew nothing about major decisions in the State Department, or the Justice Department, or the Internal Revenue Service. The heads of those agencies, in turn, insisted they knew nothing about major decisions by their subordinates. It was as if the government functioned by some hidden hand. Clearly, there was a degree of willful blindness in these claims. However, the suggestion that someone, even the president, is in control of today’s government may be an illusion.

Over at Politico, the number-one "most searched" term is "kermit gosnell," the abortion doctor currently on trial in Philadelphia for the murder of seven babies. That search yields zero matches. The doctor´s last name, "gosnell," is Politico´s third most searched term and also yields zero matches having to do with Kermit Gosnell.

None have voted to defund President Obama’s golf trips. The amendment, sponsored by Senator Tom Coburn, required 60 votes to pass.

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.

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)

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
