Ex-Supreme Court justice pushes gun
grab, 2nd Amendment rewrite

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:grace52, 4/22/2014 12:50:46 PM

A liberal former Supreme Court justice, still outspoken and influential in retirement, is pushing to change the Constitution´s Second Amendment in a way that could lead to massive gun confiscations in states. John Paul Stevens, 94, who retired in 2010, would rewrite the Second Amendment in a way that would allow only state militia members to be armed, a radical change from the current lay of the land spelled out in several high court decisions.

John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, & Ben Franklin all knew Stevens to be a Tory and didn´t let him sign the Declaration of Independence. Just because he outlived them doesn´t mean he can get his way finally.

The practical result of this "minor re-write" of the 2nd Amendment would be a well-regulated, Government-Owned, Marxist-Progressive Militia violently crushing the rights and liberties of an unarmed, helpless civilian population.

The recent attack on the Bundy Ranch in Nevada provides just a slight hint of the overwhelming violence and murder we would be facing.

I wonder how many dead Americans Justice Stevens would like to see to implement his clever plan. No doubt, the crusty old goat would not participate in the door-to-door no-knock antics and he probably wouldn´t want anyone he cares about doing that, either.

Have you ever noticed who is in the lead of gun control? Old Rich affluent White guys. Malcolm X and Martin Luther King were advocates of the 2nd Amendment for Private Gun ownership so African Americans could protect themselves from the Night Riders and KKK.

Gun Control is a RACIST concept.

The Framers had fresh in their minds, King George and control of weapons. Using that memory, they ensured that private citizens would always have the right to own weapons.

That bad, huh? Newspaper so disappointed

President Obama has so far been a major disappointment to even his most ardent supporters, his approval numbers steadily falling to fresh lows. And the president is apparently such a disappointment, that the Billings Gazette in Montana felt compelled last week to apologize to its readers for endorsing him in 2008 over Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

Rewriting History
Weekly Standard, by Joel Winton    Original Article
Posted By: grace52- 6/2/2014 2:44:57 PM     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton will shortly release a memoir, Hard Choices, chronicling her tenure as secretary of state. If what she has to say in its pages resembles what she had to say from the stage at the American Jewish Committee’s (AJC) annual Global Forum on May 14—where she claimed undue credit for implementing sanctions against Iran—it’s worth setting the record straight now. In reality, the Obama administration, and Clinton’s State Department in particular, opposed, dragged their feet on, and sought to water down every piece of sanctions legislation introduced by bipartisan majorities in the House and Senate. With that history now being rewritten, let’s review the actual record.

Next month it will be 10 years since Ronald Reagan died at age 93. Next fall it will be 20 years since he withdrew from public view by releasing his handwritten letter announcing he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer´s disease, and 30 years since he was re-elected with 59 percent of the vote, carrying 49 of 50 states -- a political feat no one has come close to since. And it will be 50 years since his late October telecast for Barry Goldwater made him a national political figure.

What does America owe its veterans? Perhaps the best answer to this question I have ever seen came from a young woman named Julie Ponzi—wise beyond her years—in response to a review I had written of Karl Marlantes’s magnificent Vietnam war novel, Matterhorn. She observed that by providing a real understanding of war and its sacrifices, memoirs and novels such as Matterhorn make it possible for “our fighting men to finally get some genuine gratitude. Not sympathy or pedestals; but real gratitude.

GOP Committee Chairman

A Republican congressman bashing “crony capitalism” and “corporate welfare” is no longer a new thing. A Republican congressman actually trying to do something about corporate welfare, however, is nearly unprecedented. So it´s a sign that the GOP could go in a new direction when the Republican chairman of the House Financial Services Committee sets out to derail some of Wall Street´s favorite federal gravy trains and “reform the corporate welfare state.” Texas Republican Jeb Hensarling, who chairs the House banking panel, gave a call to arms at the conservative Heritage Foundation on Tuesday afternoon,

At fundraiser, Obama dismisses GOP
scrutiny of Benghazi, Obamacare

President Obama, during a fundraiser Monday night, chided Republicans for spending additional time scrutinizing his administration´s handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack and the implementation of Obamacare and blamed the GOP for Washington´s dysfunction. Obama is under pressure this week to formally address the problems at the Veterans Affairs Department after allegations of secret waiting times at VA hospitals that may have cost 40 veterans their lives. White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough appeared on the Sunday talk shows and repeatedly said the president is infuriated by the unfolding VA scandal “and I have the scars to prove it.”

One change is not enough for veterans

I did not get to know Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki when we served together in the Obama administration, but in our limited interactions I liked him. He struck me as polite, smart, earnest and hard-working. Over time he resisted the ego-tripping that many agency heads find irresistible in Washington. Secretary Shinseki, however, has not been an agent of change. As his May 15 Senate testimony made clear, the management style which he brought with him—the only style he knows—is ill-suited for an agency that has serious management and integrity issues. Delegating and deferring to a broken bureaucracy that will not be candid

Eric Shinseki’s troubles began with a "Patton" video. Now the secretary of Veterans Affairs is facing charges that veterans are needlessly dying on his watch as the head of the largest civilian agency in the federal government. Scandals have cascaded over Shinseki and the VA since the Washington Examiner revealed in August 2012 that $50,000 in taxpayer money was spent to produce a pair of video parodies that came to define the lavish spending at the two Veterans Affairs training conferences in Orlando.

It´s hardly news that conservatives are not especially welcome on college and university campuses. Speech codes are designed to restrict discourse and punish the exercise of fundamental rights. Faculties are disproportionately left-wing in their politics. Administrators are sometimes intimidated by mobs. Conservative students can be marginalized and harassed. Visiting speakers are assailed, shouted down, sometimes physically assaulted.

In a previous post, I wrote about a new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine finding the Massachusetts health care law signed by former Gov. Mitt Romney in 2006 led to a measurable reduction in mortality in the state relative to other counties in the United States with similar demographics that did not expand coverage. But as experts debate how much the Massachusetts experience is likely to be replicated nationally as President Obama´s health care law expands the number of Americans with insurance, one question worth exploring is how much of a role the world-class medical system in Massachusetts

It´s mature to be calm. Republicans are nothing if not mature. It’s chic to be cool. Republicans yearn to be chic. It’s a sign of gravitas to be collected. Republicans have gravitas. And so Republicans, from candidates to consultants to commentators, cultivate a calm, cool, and collected affect. Keep calm and carry on, they say soberly and sagely to each other. Which is fine if you’re in the midst of the struggle, and your forces are already fully committed to the fight.

That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B.
