Rangel Fibs: Democrat Claims
‘Millions’ of Kids Being ‘Shot
Down by Assault Weapons’

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/21/2013 5:17:24 PM

During an appearance on MSNBC this morning, Congressman Charlie Rangel was asked what he thought about the assault weapons ban being dropped from Senate bill. Rangel blamed the defeat on politics and money and then made the extraordinary claim that "millions of kids" are dying because they are "being shot down by assault weapons." I’m ashamed to admit it but its politics and its money, The NRA has taken this position, there is no reason, there is no foundation. There is no hunter that needs automatic military weapons to enjoy the culture of going hunting.

So this idiot Rangel thinks that the 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution is designed for hunting?

I don´t know about millions, but a distressing number of yoots are being shot down by other yoots in the ´hood. Inner city cops only go through the motions to investigate these crimes if they investigate them at all.

What Rangel fails to mention is that said yoots don´t obey gun laws. In fact, most of them aren´t legal owners of the guns they use. Criminals are like that, for some reason.

Democrats pull number out of their butts. When one goes on national TV and exaggerates by a factor of 500, we should inversely apply that same factor to his salary. Rangel should have his salary cut by a factor of 500 until he corrects his numbers. Same for the idiot who claimed millions would lose their jobs over Sequester. Maybe we can collect the soundbites under an ad, Your Democrat Leaders Can´t Count.

Most of the millions of missing chillruns were eaten by sharks as they crossed the
Atlantic Ocean by trying to swim here from Africa so they could become slaves.

No, wait...
That was what Major Owens told us previously...
something similar to that.

I did not know that Major Owens had become Cholly Rangler´s speechwriter.
I thought he had gone to Mars with Sheila Jackson Lee to commemorate the flag placed
thereupon by America´s astronauts in an earlier and more adventurous era.

May the Farce be upon us not much longer... s/o...

The first comment after the original article, compared rangel´s inane comment about "millions of kids" to idiot hank johnson´s comment about Guam flipping over. Then there is sheila jackson lee, and the flag that astronauts left on Mars. Not to mention, maxine waters’ multiple outrages. I´d exceed the reply word limit by 10 with a complete list. There is no end. The CBC is scary stupid, and corrupt. And it´s scarier to consider these traitors have access to sensitive national security documents.

Now I am thoroughly convinced that the Democrat hierarchy chooses the people of color they want to promote into positions of power. They intentionally choose the most corrupt (or easily corruptable) or the stupidest (or both) people they can find to set them up in office. As I said before, the Democrats still are racist. They just hide it better. They promote these idiots and criminals so they can control them as they use them to manipulate their own people to ensure that they are always kept on the poverty-ridden Democrat plantation. They also are behind who primarily gets promoted in many other areas like entertainment,local community leaders, etc They also make sure there are plenty of goodies and support for others in positions of influence like a lot of the reverends, business owners, etc. if they also continue to push the leftist agenda and enforce peer pressure to keep the people down. You may think it sounds like a crazy conspiracy theory, but it is so clear to me. The evidence is there.

If fire arm homicides committed by people of Sub-Saharan African descent are removed, America´s gun death rate is similar to Norway or Sweden. Overwhelming proportion of gun deaths are caused by illegal weapons as opposed to those legally and constitutionally owned by law abiding citizens. These two ´searchlights´ are pointing to a single cause - guns owned illegally by African Americans. When we have the political courage to recognize and own up to these facts, Rangel´s ´millions´ will stop dying.

I find it interesting that the left´s main argument for stripping our rights from us is that we don´t "need" this or that. From AR-15s to 16 oz sodas. Why do they presume to know what someone else "needs"? Why do they presume that they have the right to dictate what someone else "needs"? I wonder if it is a "from each according to his ability to each according to his needs" kind of thing. What I do need is to be left alone!

FACT: The Second Amendment has nothing whatsoever to do with hunting.

FACT: The rifles in question are NOT ´automatic weapons´.

FACT: Nationwide, murders with all rifles in the last reporting year was about 360 and much less than murders by hands, feet or elbows. Modern defense rifles are a small fraction of that total.

FACT: Rangel is a crook and stupid.

Just ahead of a possible Hillary run for the presidency, the Clinton Library released a new load of documents from President Bill Clinton’s years in the White House. One of those documents attempts to explain Hillary´s "vast right-wing conspiracy" claim in which the Clinton administration accused Republican staffers of colluding with "extremists" on the Internet to hurt the Clintons. On January 27, 1998, Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC´s Today Show. During her interview with Matt Lauer, she claimed that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" had been trying to destroy her husband "since the day he announced for president." That interview drew

When British photojournalist Charles Ommanney traveled through six states to photograph American gun owners, he found something he did not expect: they don´t fit the stereotypes. According to PolicyMic.com, Ommanney was sent to photograph American gun owners for the German magazine Stern. In so doing, he discovered "people who are often far from the stereotypical vision of the American ´gun-nut.´" He found a teenager named Elizabeth, who posed with a Walther handgun "in front of a floral wallpaper backdrop." He found entire families--mother, father, daughter, son--who posed with their firearms of choice. Ommanney also found one woman with a pump shotgun for home

As the nation awaits Hillary Clinton´s decision of whether or not she will run for president in 2016, a cache of 7,500 pages of newly released documents from Bill Clinton´s years in the White House show some familiar political themes. One revelation is that Bill Clinton worried that a massive new healthcare scheme would cause Americans to lose their insurance. In 1993, the President allowed his wife, first lady Hillary Clinton, to become the face of an Obamacare-like takeover of the nation´s healthcare system. The plan was sarcastically dubbed Hillarycare. But as these internal documents show, in what is now a

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK - In September 2001, as the U.S. reeled from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Vladimir Putin supported Washington´s imminent invasion of Afghanistan in ways that would have been inconceivable during the Cold War. He agreed that U.S. planes carrying humanitarian aid could fly through Russian air space. He said the U.S. military could use airbases in former Soviet republics in Central Asia. And he ordered his generals to brief their U.S. counterparts on their own ill-fated 1980s occupation of Afghanistan. During Putin´s visit to President George W. Bush´s Texas ranch two

The exact identify of the aircraft remains a mystery, but rumours abound that it could be a secret jet. ´The photo is grainy because it was taken with a hand-held maxed-out 400mm telephoto lens through a cloud layer and then it was severely cropped to bring it up even close,´ says Jeff Templin, who took the photo on 16 April. ´There is no way to know the altitude and no way to judge its

Could the 2016 presidential election turn into a contest between a Bush and a Clinton? Political debate in America last week revolved around whether or not Jeb Bush, Florida´s former governor who is son or brother to two former US presidents – both named George – would jump into the 2016 battle for the Republican presidential nomination. For a nation that fought a war for independence from the hereditary power of the British Crown, in the person of another fellow named George, the concept of nominating a third Bush to run for the White House against a second Clinton (the former

Alert shoppers are accustomed to watching food prices go up and down. But a string of forces—from droughts to diseases—is raising the cost of a trip to the grocery store at a rapid clip. And it looks like it will be a while before the price pressure eases. Some of that pressure is coming from California—the source of roughly half the nation´s fruits and vegetables—where a long-running drought is forcing farmers and ranchers to cut production. After the driest year on record, large sections of farmland are expected to lay fallow this year as the Golden State copes with an ongoing water

Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) on Friday called for a Senate hearing into the dispute between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over cattle grazing. Heller described as "patriots" the people who came armed to Bundy’s ranch after the BLM began to seize his cattle for refusing to pay grazing fees and fines that now total more than $1 million. Heller debated the ranch standoff on a Nevada television station with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who has called the armed Bundy supporters “domestic terrorists.” "What senator Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots," Heller said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms.

But the female second lieutenant has never let that hold her back from pursuing her dream of becoming an infantry officer in the Marine Corps. Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts.

Suppose a scientific conference on cancer prevention never addressed smoking, on the grounds that in a free society you can´t change private behavior, and anyway, maybe the statistical relationships between smoking and cancer are really caused by some other third variable. Wouldn´t some suspect that the scientists who raised these claims were driven by something—ideology, tobacco money—other than science? Yet in the current discussions about increased inequality, few researchers, fewer reporters, and no one in the executive branch of government directly addresses what seems to be the strongest statistical correlate of inequality in the United States: the rise of single-parent
