It isn’t just AR-15s that are flying off the shelves. Shooters are also starting to experience a serious shortage of ammunition. This is partly because President Obama is using up so much ammo. He sprang a secret on us in an interview with New Republic, finally letting the cat out of the bag after all these years: Obama says he goes skeet shooting at Camp David “all the time.” Really? Who knew? I thought he just played basketball, golfed and smoked cigarettes.
When he was elected in 2008 and merely standing behind podiums emblazoned with "President ELECT of the United States of America", anyone wanting to work in any capacity in his administration had to answer a very lengthy questionairre. IIRC, it asked questions like "do you own a gun?", "have you ever fired a gun?", "does anyone you know own a gun?", etc., etc. Now Djangobama would have us believe that Camp David is a sportman´s paradise. Ha! And one more thing: Be not deceived by The Deceiver. The 2nd Amendment is not about shooting skeet.

Where´s the pictures?
If this were true we would have seen hundreds by now depicting Barry´s love of guns and "rational" gun control.
Hey Zippy, why do I think you are lying through your teeth?

Obammy shoots skeet in order to relax after performing operations on people for free. And after he´s done working on the gutters & leaders around the house he likes to kick back with a few rounds of taking out the old clay discs and then follow that up with a few brewskis.
What a crock and what lousy reporting! No one bothered to ask a follow up? Like do you use a side-by-side or an over & under? Remington, Browning or Benelli? Do you pull left or right?
I searched for a photo of Obammy with a gun --- any gun --- and all I found was doctored photos. We would see hundreds if this was true.
When was the last time he was at Camp David? According to all of the news media, he, Mooch and the little mooches hate Camp David. They like the luxury resorts, not the rustic camps. So, I have to say...
For all I know, the individual calling himself Barack Obama may be an avid skeet shooter. As usual with this strange man, we don´t have the facts. All we know is what he tells us about himself. The mainstream media has devoted itself to keeping as much information about him hidden as it can, and to discrediting and demonizing all who request more documented facts. The individual calling himself Barack Obama seems best understood as the fictional protagonist of a collaborative political novel written by a number of people and organizations, the latter including the liberal news media.
The mind rebels at the image of Barry banging away at clay pigeons at the shooting range. One thinks of Michael Dukakis playing tank commander. I would be very surprised if Obama is telling the truth about this particular matter.
As others have noted, the important thing is not whether the individual calling himself Barack Obama actually does enjoy skeet shooting. The important thing is that the Second Amendment and the thinking behind it have absolutely nothing to do with skeet shooting.
#17 beat me to it - I was going to ask when was the last time he was at Camp David? He is such a master liar, he didn´t even crack a smile when he said he shoots skeet at Camp David. I wonder if he even knows where Camp David is and for whom it is named - why would he, it´s part of U.S. history.
It really is amazing going into local stores and seeing ZERO ammo for hanguns, as well as ZERO .223/5.56 and especially .22LR.
Going into a sporting goods store or Walmart and finding no .22 ammo is like going into a supermarket and finding no white bread. I find this unnerving, but on another level also encouraging. It shows that there are a lot of people across the US who are paying attention and who care.
Have been *hoarding* six calibers for the past four years, bought a new and larger safe and all the ammo cans I could find knowing that if and when the Progressive communist was re-elected, that he would indeed make a move against the U.S. Constitution and he has as predicted. My Will is written to hand down all firearms and those things relative, to my very youngest so that he in return will hand down to his own offspring those *sacred instruments* that have kept us FREE!
Concealed Carry Skeetgun Permits may be hard to come by, but Rootin’ Tootin’ Sharp-Shootin’ Annie Oakley Obama has one. As an avid student of American History, he’s always been particularly interested in what was served at our nation’s first Thanksgiving dinner which we shared with the Pilgrims. His research discovered it featured quite an extensive menu. Skeet Fricassee was the main course, of course. Other delectable dishes included turkey, chicken, venison, fish, foot-long subs, In-And-Out Burgers, Big Macs and Whoppers. Plenty of veggies, too. And not surprisingly, the candied yams were especially popular at the kids’ table. And what’s Thanksgiving without both varieties of Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce? There were plenty of beverages to choose from as well, the most popular being pop-top recyclable cans of Diet Snapple.
Yep, nobody personifies America quite like Barack Hussein Obama!
Really. Must he lie about everything? He must be watching too many episodes of Downton Abbey. I wonder if he wears plus fours, a sturdy pair of brogues, and a deerstalker cap, and has a pipe clenched between his teeth while out shooting. Pfft.
He´s a disaster as president. As a human being this guy is just an immense joke who must himself be stupid if he expects anyone to believe his absurd nonsense.

What he really means is that he shoots off his mouth all the time. What a pos he is.
I remember an episode with R. Lee Ermy, a retired Marine Gunnery Sergent, in which he fired a .12 gage automatic shotgun. The recoil was so great that it knocked the crap out of a very experienced shooter. A man that has fired a wide varity of weapons. But this was his first firing of a .12 gage.
Having said that, with someone as skinny and feeble as Obozo is, firing a round of skeet would tear his sholder off. I wonder if he even knows how many shots are fired in a round of skeet. The correct answer is 100 for a full round.
Obama is just such a dumb hypocrite that he is no longer even worth commenting about. I never watch or listen to him; unfortunately, he is on so many internet news articles one cannot avoid him. ( Just my opinion , but he is nauseating as a President of the U>S> ). How such an intolerant, ignorant, unprincipled person could be elected will be fodder for future generations of historians, if the U>S> still exists after his destructive policies are all in place. ).
This is almost as laughable as when Romney said that he shoots varmits or when that blockhead Kerry looking rather stupid in his new hunting gear trying to get a hunting license. We all know that he and his family of twits cannot stand Camp David. Moochelle is such a top notched First Lady that she probably asked Odummy if you can eat skeet. Who knows what Wookies eat anyway. Obammo is the gun and ammo dealer/buyer gift that keeps on giving. Don´t Tread On Me!
I wonder which one of his puppeteers, Soros, Axelrod or Plouffe loaded op TOTUS with this fairytale? Thev president is so self absorbed and convinced of his own elequence that he would offer this sop to the sheeple. He and Biden both need psychiatric help.
The most respectable gun culture is here to stay with the highest standards and well earned confidence, the one defining culture (missing in all the other tyrannies) that makes us always different. Even our anti gun Hitlers, Feinstein & Obama are firmly affixed to the gun culture. It´s a lovely culture. Without it, we would be a desolate, wasting away culture biding our time til the next Stalin, Hitler or Mao.
The only thing the Great White/Black Hunter shoots all the time is his mouth off. Where are the photos? I mean he surrounds himself with photographers 24 hours a day, so there has to be at least a few pix of him skeet shooting?! Another lie.
Dear President Obama: Some people do not believe you know how to shoot a shot gun. So here are a few pointers to prove them wrong.
The best way to grip the gun is to wrap your arms around the skinny end of the gun. Some people call it a barrel. Point it directly at your mid section because that thing will have quite a kick to it. Gently squeeze the trigger and make sure both barrels are cocked and loaded and watch those skeet fly to pieces.
There is absolutely nothing this character says that doesn´t have an ulterior motive. In addition it is in keeping with his habit of trying to have it both ways and talk out of both sides of his mouth. Skeet shooting? Perhaps this modest gun use will ´´evolve´´ to more substantial weapons, if required by politics. e.g. ´´Sure fellow gun users, I don´t like the idea of giving up our weapons either, but we can and we must for the greater good and for the children.´´
Let´s get this straight, The so called "good" guys want to take the guns from the "people" because they cannot be trusted after over 200 years. The "good" guys and the "bad" guys will still have their guns. We will have to depend on the so called "good" guys to protect us from the "Bad" guys who will never give up their weapons without a fight. OK question, Who is "good" and who is "bad".
Former President George W. Bush underwent surgery on Tuesday to have a stent inserted after a blockage was discovered in an artery, his spokesman said. A written statement said a "blockage was discovered in an artery in his heart" during the former president´s annual physical exam. "The procedure was performed successfully this morning, without complication, at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital," his office said. "President Bush is in high spirits, eager to return home tomorrow and resume his normal schedule on Thursday.
Intercepted communication between al Qaeda leaders was one component of a broader pool of intelligence that prompted a threat alert closing numerous U.S. embassies in the Middle East and Africa, U.S. sources said on Monday.The New York Times reported that the closure of the embassies was the result of intercepted electronic communications between Ayman al-Zawahri, who replaced Osama bin Laden as head of al Qaeda, and Nasser al-Wuhayshi, the head of Yemen-based affiliate al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).
In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”
PARIS -- Interpol has issued a global security alert in connection with suspected al-Qaida involvement in several recent prison escapes including those in Iraq, Libya and Pakistan. The Lyon, France-based international police agency says that the alert follows "the escape of hundreds of terrorists and other criminals" in the past month. The alert calls on Interpol´s 190 member countries to help determine whether these events are coordinated or linked, the organization said in a statement Saturday.
Unleashing a barrage of expletives that would be unusual even in an off-the-record conversation, the chief spokeswoman for Anthony D. Weiner’s embattled campaign for mayor attacked a former campaign intern in an interview published on Tuesday night. Barbara Morgan, in an interview with Talking Points Memo, a political news site, was responding to a first-person account by Olivia Nuzzi, the former intern, who wrote harshly in The Daily News about her experiences with the campaign. Ms. Nuzzi claimed that Mr. Weiner repeatedly called interns by the wrong name, underpaid a staff
THERE is something missing from the endless moralizing and sophomoric jokes aimed at Anthony D. Weiner. That something is the role of women in a coarse and creepy Internet culture dedicated to the fulfillment of both male and female desires for virtual carnal knowledge. People ask how Mr. Weiner’s wife, the soulfully beautiful and professionally accomplished Huma Abedin, can stay with him. My question is why hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of women apparently derive gratification from exchanging sexual talk and pictures with strangers.
The American journalism trade is breathing a collective – but premature and, in many cases, grossly hypocritical – sigh of relief today. A military judge has found Bradley Manning guilty of many crimes, but "aiding the enemy" isn´t one of them. Had the judge found Manning guilty of aiding the enemy, she would have set a terrible precedent. For the first time, an American court – albeit a military court – would have said it was a potentially capital crime simply to give information to a news organization, because in the internet era
Green paint was found Monday defacing a statue outside the Smithsonian Castle on the National Mall and poured atop an organ in a chapel at the Washington National Cathedral, just three days after the Lincoln Memorial was vandalized in a similar manner. D.C. police have now joined the U.S. Park Police in the investigation, but authorities said they do not know if any of the incidents are related.
"I think every president in the intense media environment we have now, certainly every two-term president, gets to a point where the American people stop listening, stop leaning forward hungrily for information. I think this president got there earlier than most presidents. And I think he´s in that time now."So said the Wall Street Journal´s Peggy Noonan on ABC´s This Week Sunday.
David Axelrod, a former senior adviser to President Obama, said Sunday that Former Rep. Anthony Weiner was “delusional” and should drop out of the race for New York City mayor."I think it´s time for him to go away and let New York have its mayor’s race," Axelrod said on NBC´s "Meet thePress." Axelrod said he had not commented on Weiner because he is personal friends with Weiner´s wife,
Weiner’s political career will never end, if only because of how much value he has to offer to the media, standup comedians and bored browsers looking for some news item to wake them up long enough to finish another hour of data entry at their job. Shame has become a mostly discredited concept. The return of Weiner and Spitzer to public life proves as much. But the Era of Shame ended conclusively with Clinton’s impeachment proceedings. The only outcome of those proceedings was to degrade the country while leaving the man at the center of the mess intact.
Sometimes James Risen feels like Jean Valjean, the beleaguered protagonist of “Les Miserables,” hounded for years by the authorities. “They just keep coming at me,” Mr. Risen, a Times reporter in Washington, told me by phone last week. It has been 10 years since he learned of a secret C.I.A. program to interfere with Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons, and six since he got an ominous FedEx package containing a government subpoena. Since then, it has been one legal hurdle after another, trying to stay out of court. Just over a week ago, another blow came: A federal appeals court panel ruled,
In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu
Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes
For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.
He thought he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — but it turns out he’s “just another boring straight guy.” ABC News editor Don Ennis strolled into the newsroom in May wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig and announced he was transgender and splitting from his wife. He wanted to be called Dawn. But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don. “I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”
The truth about Benghazi, the Associated Press/James Rosen monitoring, the IRS corruption, the NSA octopus, and Fast and Furious is still not exactly known. Almost a year after the attacks on our Benghazi facilities, we are only now learning details of CIA gun-running, military stand-down orders, aliases of those involved who are still hard to locate, massaged talking points, and the weird jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. We still do not quite know why Eric Holder’s Justice Department went after the Associated Press or Fox News’s James Rosen — given that members of the administration were themselves illegally leaking
Washington--As hundreds of commuters emerged from Amtrak and commuter trains at Union Station on a recent morning, an armed squad of men and women dressed in bulletproof vests made their way through the crowds. The squad was not with the Washington police department or Amtrak’s police force, but was one of the Transportation Security Administration’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response squads — VIPR teams for short — assigned to perform random security sweeps to prevent terrorist attacks at transportation hubs across the United States.(Snip)With little fanfare, the agency best known for airport screenings has vastly expanded its reach
A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –
In an interview for The Guardian Weekend magazine, actor Matt Damon recently weighed in with his thoughts on how President Barack Obama has handled the scandals that have engulfed his administration since the spring. Damon, a vocal supporter of the president since his 2008 campaign for national office, said that Obama is overcompensating for his lack of military background with his tough response to controversies like how the government is responding to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. The actor said that Obama is allowing himself to “get bullied” and is acting as though is “manhood”
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus threatened to pull the group’s partnership with NBC and CNN for 2016 GOP presidential primary debates if the networks moved ahead with plans to air films on Hillary Clinton. “If they have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting on August 14, I will seek a binding vote stating that the RNC will neither partner with these networks in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates they sponsor,” Preibus said in a statement. In individual letters to CNN President Jeff Zucker and NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt,
The Pentagon has placed its elite cadre of special operations teams on full alert to launch preemptive attacks against suspected al Qaeda targets across the globe, according to reports. The American special forces teams have spent the past week waiting for U.S. military and intelligence officials to confirm the whereabouts of the terror cell plotting to attack U.S. diplomatic outposts in the Mideast and North Africa. Unnamed sources told CNN on Monday that the teams were poised to carry out the preemptive strikes, but declined to comment on where the U.S. forces were located or which potential
Oprah Winfrey on Monday said the killings of Trayvon Martin and Emmett Till are the "same thing." This transpired during an interview with The Grio that aired on NBC´s Today show. OPRAH WINFREY: It´s so easy during this time: Trayvon Martin, Trayvon Martin parallel to Emmett Till, let me just tell you. In my mind, same thing. But you can, you can get stuck in that and not allow yourself to move forward and to see how far we´ve come. Really? Martin and Till are the same thing?
