One Starry Eyed Editorialist Still
Dreams Of Mass Gun Confiscations

In the aftermath of the Texas church shooting there’s been the usual amount of soul searching and demands that somebody “do something” about gun violence. And as always happens, the usual list of suspects begins proposing the same old solutions which wouldn’t have done anything to stop the guy. (Though in this case, we have at least learned about problems in the military reporting system for disciplinary action which may be helpful.) But the various partial bans and paperwork traps aren’t going to affect most of these worst case scenarios. That doesn’t apply to quite everyone, though. Enter David Scharfenberg,

This "Massive Confiscation Program" sounds familiar! David Scharfenberg your last name seems to me to be Jewish. Remember when Hitler was spreading his power over Germany, the first thing he did was confiscate guns from everyone. The Jewish people realized many yrs. later that was the biggest mistake they ever made by handing them over. They had no protection. You would think you would be thinking "Lesson Learned"

It is no doubt what most of the Democrats are thinking but don’t have the spine to say aloud, they know at least for now that will never happen so they opt for take little bits at a time subverting our inalienable right to self-defense under the guise of their perverse version of common sense.

FTA:
“The logic of gun control lies, at bottom, in substantially reducing the number of deadly weapons on the street — and confiscation is far and away the most effective approach.”

At least I can respect the honesty of people calling for confiscation, their logic, not so much.

So what’s a “substantial reduction” what does that look like and where does that leave us. How about 50%, pretty substantial I’d say. I could surrender 50% of my guns and I wouldn’t be any less lethal. Or is that 100% of mine and 0% from someone else.

Any “substantial reduction” is overwhelmingly going to come from the homes of law abiding citizens not the street. That’s logic.

When "they" start confiscating guns, that´s when the blood starts flowing.
Gun confiscation in America will be resisted fully.
Americans will never allow it.

They have always wanted all guns confiscated. There are a number of different levels of thought behind this, some are Stalinists, Maoists and would love to emulate Pol Pot, some just don´t believe in self defense, some are pacifists.

I have observed this as a opponent for 50 years, having gotten my first Letter to the Editor published five decades ago opposing what became the 1968 Gun Control Act, the first time government permission was required to purchase a firearm.

They have always wanted all of them. Believe that, this is what they said in the beginning, when they thought that they could get it and told the truth. The organization now rebranded for the third time to the Brady Campaign started life and operated for a long time as the National Coalition to Ban Handguns. And they came frighteningly close, even the NRA (note that their middle name is Rifle) was considering throwing handguns under the political bus for a while.

Never doubt, never waver, never believe their lies. They will never rest until all privately owned firearms are confiscated. This is what their real goal is. The answer is forever, NO! And if they actually try, the guns will defend themselves, with our help.

Bannon’s Ill-Conceived War on the Establishment
National Review Online, by Jonathan S. Tobin    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/7/2017 3:25:10     Post Reply
We already know Steve Bannon believes that politics is war. But during the course of his speech at an Alabama rally for Roy Moore this week, he gave the country an ugly lesson in what scorched-earth political warfare really entails. (Snip)Still, despite all the fun he’s having attacking his favorite targets and boosting Moore, Bannon has to be aware that he isn’t winning his war on McConnell. Try as he might to deny it, he knows McConnell is now more important to Trump than the Breitbart attack machine is. It was McConnell’s successful maneuvering and negotiating that gave Trump his

Running Secret CFPB Ops

What’s the correct spell to create a buried lead? Aparecium mediatus? The New York Times offers this report on the operation of Consumer Protection Financial Bureau (CFPB) under the command of interim director Mick Mulvaney, with the clear intention to sound the alarm on the bureau’s sharp change in direction. Buried deep in the article, however, is the real news — that a group of bureaucrats have decided to hijack the CFPB as much as possible and operate in secret to defy Mulvaney. Please note the reflection of the maturity of these employees in their choice of self-aggrandizement, too:

How an FBI official with a political agenda
corrupted both Mueller, Comey investigations

Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/7/2017 4:59:37     Post Reply
How is it possible that Hillary Clinton escaped criminal indictment for mishandling classified documents despite incriminating evidence that she violated the Espionage Act? Why did Donald Trump become the target of a criminal investigation for allegedly conspiring with Russia to influence the presidential election despite no evidence that he ever did so? The answer, it seems, comes down to one person who played a vital role in both cases: Peter Strzok, deputy director of counterintelligence at the FBI. Strzok was exchanging politically charged texts with an FBI lawyer that denigrated Trump and lauded Clinton at the same time he was

Jay Kaganoff, writing in the Washington Post says: “Fellow conservatives, it’s time to call on Clarence Thomas to resign.” No it isn’t. The controversy over Anita Hill’s allegations against Justice Thomas has nothing material in common with the cases of Al Franken, John Conyers, or Roy Moore. First, Thomas categorically denied Hill’s allegations. Franken admits to some of the allegations against him. Moore admitted, at least initially, that he dated one or more of the girls in question and doesn’t deny that some of the handwriting in Beverly Nelson’s yearbook is his. Second, Hill’s case was classic “he said, she said.” No

Pearl Harbor: The Shocking Loss
That Led to a Great Victory
American Spectator, by Andrew B. Wilson    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/7/2017 4:46:48     Post Reply
Franklin D. Roosevelt called it “a date which will live in infamy.” Today, more than three quarters of a century later, there is another reason for remembering Pearl Harbor: It evoked a response that kept much of the civilized world from falling into a new dark age of totalitarian tyranny. On the bright, clear morning of Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese fighters, bombers, and torpedo planes all but wiped out the U.S. Pacific fleet contingent of eight battleships (sinking four and damaging the four others). Two thousand four hundred and three Americans died in the attack. Unprovoked and unexpected, Japan delivered a

Former President Barack Obama is taking credit for the robust economic growth that is taking place under President Trump. At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth. “As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Mr. Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far, a streak that still continues by the way.” He added wryly, “Thanks, Obama.” The stock market has gained about 30 percent in value since

On Tuesday, Representative John Conyers (D., Mich.) announced that he would “retire” from Congress, effectively immediately. Conyers, who has spent the last 53 years in office — Bonanza was the top-rated television show in America the year he joined Congress — didn’t exactly retire: he actually resigned in disgrace, thanks to allegations of sexual harassment and abuse. The most recent allegation: A woman says Conyers groped her in church. In church. He stepped down only because news broke that taxpayers had been footing the bill for his games of footsie. But fear not: The city of Detroit shall not go

The home of 21st Century Fox and Fox News Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch, located on a vineyard outside of Los Angeles, is "burning down" in Southern California’s wildfires, according to an NBC News report on Wednesday. Bloomberg News reported earlier Wednesday that the area around Murdoch´s Moraga vineyard in Bel-Air was ordered evacuated as firefighters battled wind-whipped fires that continue to spread. Murdoch´s property is "a wine growing estate in the Santa Monica Mountains at an elevation of 600 to 900 feet, five miles from the Pacific Ocean," according to the Moraga’s website.

What Should Be Done
About Mueller´s Biased Staff?

Are there any liberal Washington D.C. lawyers who don’t despise President Trump. Yeah, I’m sure there are some. I’m just not acquainted with them. In fact, every liberal I know in Washington (lawyer or not) hates or strongly dislikes Trump. Nor are they shy about saying so. That’s a problem because Robert Mueller’s team is full of liberal lawyers from Washington (or who have spent considerable time here). We know they are liberal because they contributed to the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and/or Barack Obama. Conceivably some contributed to Hillary not because they are liberal but because they can’t stand Trump.

Team Obama attempted ‘stealth coup’
by undermining Trump

From the moment Donald Trump secured the Republican nomination and then the presidency, national security officials under President Obama have shown themselves to be intense adversaries in public and behind the scenes. In the latest development, special counsel Robert Mueller’s top-gun prosecutor, Andrew Weissmann, praised acting Attorney General Sally Yates, a Trump nemesis, for refusing a White House order to defend the president’s travel ban on Muslim-majority countries, according to internal emails. Mr. Weissmann made it clear whose side he was on. “I am so proud,” Mr. Weissmann wrote to Ms. Yates when he was the head of the Obama Justice Department’s criminal

Trump’s Monument Fight

On Monday, President Donald Trump visited Utah to announce the largest reductions to national monuments in U.S. history. His order will shrink two national monuments, Bears Ears and Grand Staircase–Escalante, by roughly 2 million acres in total. The decision has drawn the ire of environmental groups and Democratic legislators but has been applauded by Republican lawmakers and locals who want the land to remain open to multiple uses. Legal challenges to the action have already been filed. But for every fit of rage over Trump’s executive decision, there is an equal and opposite reaction against the creation of national monuments,

Rumors that the Republican National Committee was built on the site of an ancient moron burial ground gained new credence this week when it confirmed that it was renewing its support for Alabama´s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. I shouldn’t joke, because the worst thing about the RNC’s decision isn’t the stupidity — though the stupidity is real, and spectacular — but the moral obscenity. Last month, the RNC and the National Republican Senatorial Committee pulled out of their joint fundraising agreements because Moore had been credibly accused by several women of having preyed upon them when they were teenagers,

Minnesota Public Radio reported late Wednesday he would resign, though Franken’s office pushed back saying it wasn’t a done deal yet. It will be up to Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton to appoint a successor. (Snip) Multiple sources reported that the likely candidate could be Democratic Lt. Gov. Tina Smith, a close ally of Franken.

WASHINGTON — John Conyers III, who was endorsed by his father on Tuesday to succeed him in the House, was arrested in February after his girlfriend suffered knife cuts during an argument. Mr. Conyers, in an interview Wednesday, tried to head off a possibly disqualifying scandal just a day after his father resigned from Congress amid multiplying allegations of sexual harassment. As issues of sexual harassment and abuse roil Washington, any violent altercation against a woman could doom his effort to take the seat that his father held since 1965. The younger Mr. Conyers said that the couple began arguing around 3
