In a shame that rivals her Mayor being arrested and convicted for drug use, the District of Columbia is FINALLY forced by judicial edict to comply with the Constitution’s Second Amendment!
I’m reminded of a former friend and lawyer who carried concealed in D.C. in the 80’s, when doing so was a major felony. On one occasion he was forced to clear leather against
an armed assailant a misguided youth who confronted he and some female company near the Jefferson Memorial. The youth dropped his piece of rebar and fled the scene.
I asked Lew what if he had been forced to shoot the
bastard misguided youth, knowing the legal ramifications of having to do so. His reply? He would have taken the first available taxi to the Potomac, thrown the offending gun therein, and fled town!
This was a man not only known in D.C., but he had actually practiced before the Supreme Court. But he knew the then ‘law’ well enough to know he had no Constitutional protection of his right to possess and carry in that locale, much less shoot someone in self-defense.
At least, if he were alive today, he’d now have that carry right.
IF he were a legal resident…
“a world where law-abiding American citizens are huddled together in camps. NOT for the acquisition of merit badges.” – Guffaw (with apologies to the late, great Rod Serling)
There’s a lot of information available on the Internet – free for the reading. Much of it is unadulterated crapola! Of course, some of it holds a kernel of truth. And some, parroting Goebbels, is an oft repeated lie, until the great unwashed believe it to BE true.
For example, I keep seeing stuff about this…
My question to you, dear reader (as I doff my tin-foil chapeau once again), is how much of this is crapola, and how much is true?
We keep hearing about
anthropogenic global warming climate change climate disruption (or whatever they are calling it this week) even though much of the ‘evidence’ has been tainted by obvious fraud and bribery of the ‘scientists’ involved, along with a specific political agenda tied to a pre-arranged outcome.
But they keep beating the drum so that the lie becomes truth.
Does this also apply to these FEMA camp stories? Is it misdirection lest we look at some other heinous act(s)?

Twenty-five years ago, the Chinese government massacred hundreds of its own citizens in Tiananmen Square. It admits no wrongdoing. It hopes the world will forget, and look the other way as it continues to abuse the fundamental rights of Chinese citizens. (Human Rights Watch)
The way things are proceeding here, we probably won’t be remembering things here, either…
do these cats resemble PEACE OFFICERS?
They are NOT hunting deer or elk. Or weekend warriors with their National Guard unit. They are training for forest ops against the citizenry of Michigan!!
They know you do not like them. They don’t like you either.
Somewhere in one of their databases, on the calendar of some admin officer, your name is on a list.
On that day, you will not have a good time.
You will not last long enough for Patriots to arrive as they did at Bundy.
Of course – that assumes you intend to simply wait at home until the day they decide to come for you.
Don’t be that guy. Don’t just hang around until a bunch of guys on a payroll decide to murder you.
And these guys are just itchin’ to murder you – and the man standing next to you.

No one fired over Fast and Furious
An Inspector General investigating the matter also found that allowing one employee to take accumulated leave prior to retirement while working full time for private company violated ATF policy… but no mention was made of any punishment for the violation.
The Justice Department is still withholding documents:
Though the failed operation has been out of the news for some time, Congress is still pressing the Justice Department to release documents on the matter. In a bipartisan vote in 2012, 17 Democrats joined House Republicans to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. President Barack Obama even invoked executive privilege in the course of the investigation. The matter is being fought in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
Take a close look at that. The House held Holder, still the sitting Attorney General, in contempt of Congress in 2012. The matter was taken to court around the same time. It is now 2014, two years later. Holder has announced retirement plans. An election approaches. And the Justice Department is still withholding documents.
I have no doubt that Obama will manage to destroy anything incriminating on his way out of office, and none of the criminals in his administration will be brought to justice.

And, of course, there’s what’s-her-name having been FIRED from the Watergate Committee due to being self-serving and lacking ethics. And Whitewater, Vince Foster, ad infinitum, ad nauseum.
But it’s important to elect a WOMAN because they all think alike and…George Bush!
Remember, they are all part of the same team whose goal it is to fundamentally transform the United States into something NOT Constitutional. And they have had successes.
I know, I’m largely preaching to the choir, here.

Did you know that the number of Americans getting benefits from the federal government each month exceeds the number of full-time workers in the private sector by more than 60 million? In other words, the number of people that are taking money out of the system is far greater than the number of people that are putting money into the system. And did you know that nearly 70 percent of all of the money that the federal government spends goes toward entitlement and welfare programs? When it comes to the transfer of wealth, nobody does it on a grander scale than the U.S. government. Most of what the government does involves taking money from some people and giving it to other people. In fact, at this point that is the primary function of the federal government.
Just check out the chart below. It comes from the Heritage Foundation, and it shows that 69 percent of all federal money is spent either on entitlements or on welfare programs…
So when people tell you that the main reason why we are being taxed into oblivion is so that we can “build roads” and provide “public services”, they are lying to you. The main reason why the government taxes you so much is so that they can take your money and give it to someone else.
(income redistribution – who knew? – Guffaw)
We have become a nation that is completely and totally addicted to government money. The following are 18 stats that prove that government dependence has reached epidemic levels…
Of course, this is what the

How DOES one measure a President’s greatness? Can we really compare John Adams to Millard Fillmore? Is it holding to the Constitutional base? Preserving the Union through extra-legal means? Being a good guy?
I remember as a kid being taught Washington was great because he was offered kingship and declined. And he was a great general who never told a lie. Of course, he wasn’t so great during the French and Indian War, and the whole Whiskey Rebellion thing.
Jefferson. One of my heroes. Governmental minimalist. Except, he too, took the reins and expanded governmental power. And, he was a nasty slave owner, like Washington. Of course, he did draft the 3/5 compromise, setting the stage for eventual emancipation of the slaves.
Lincoln. Preserved the Union! Through extra-legal means like suspending Habeus Corpus. Massacred Indians. Freed slaves in States over which he had no control.
Theodore Roosevelt. Rough Rider. Trust Buster. Progressive. Racist.
Franklin Roosevelt, his second cousin. Kept us in the Great Depression much longer than the rest of the World. Another Progressive. Locked up the Nisei. Military tribunals for combatants and civilians. Was elected FOUR times!
JFK. Didn’t duck. Daddy bought him the White House by dealing with Sam Giancana. Had style. Charisma.
Reagan. Likable. Snowed the Soviets into disbanding and taking down the wall. High taxes. Central American underground war stuff.
G.W. Bush. Also likeable. Kept us ‘safe’ after 911 with the War in Afghanistan and The PATRIOT Act.
You notice certain names are conspicuous by their absence…?
So what do YOU think?
There is a piece of legislation making its way through both the House of Representatives and Senate that could have real implications for freedom of speech in the media and on the internet. On Wednesday, Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) introduced The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 (S.2219), which seeks “to examine the prevalence of hate crime and hate speech on the Internet, television, and radio to better address such crimes.” Meanwhile, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) introduced a companion bill in the House – H.R. 3878.
“This really bothers me a great deal. Senator Ed Markey and Representative Hakeem Jeffries… are taking their Hate Crimes Reporting Act and they’re trying to jam it through and get passage in both the House and the Senate. It’s happening simultaneously… Is that part of Cass Sunstein’s old stomping grounds? The information administration looking to analyze all media outlets including radio to determine if they are working to advocate and encourage hate crimes. This is good, huh?”
In a Wednesday press release, Sen. Markey a member of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, explained why this legislation is particuraly important given the recent shooting in Kansas.
“We have recently seen in Kansas the deadly destruction and loss of life that hate speech can fuel in the United States,” Sen. Markey said, “which is why it is critical to ensure the Internet, television and radio are not encouraging hate crimes or hate speech that is not outside the protection of the First Amendment.”
Glenn happened to have a German radio from the Nazi era on his desk this morning, and he explained the great lengths taken by the Nazi government to ensure the German people only heard what they wanted them to hear.
“This [radio has] the German swastika on it, the German eagle is on it. This was an S.S. approved radio. It would only pick up the right radio stations, so you couldn’t tune into to the BBC or anything else. They just took those frequencies away,” Glenn explained. “I love the people who say the Nazis are extreme right. No, they’re not. The battle of World War II in Europe was communist versus Nazis – communists versus the national socialists… Both of them wanted world domination… Both of them were socialist… It’s the same group of guys.”
(excerpted from Glenn Beck)
YES, the recent shootings in Kansas were horrible. REGARDLESS of the allegedly White supremacist’s choice of targets or his own political thoughts.
Remember when so-called ‘liberals’ championed the First Amendment rights of disgusting individuals like the Nazis who marched in largely-Jewish Skokie, Illinois? Well, these same folks (and their political descendants) are now trying to remove the First Amendment rights of anyone with whom they disagree, for ‘our’ own good, under the guise of the ever popular PC term hate speech.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS HATE SPEECH IN A NATION WHICH ESPOUSES PROTECTIONS AS ENUMERATED IN THE FIRST AMENDMENT OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION! PERIOD.
AND, USING IT AS AGGRAVATING LABEL FOR VIOLENT CRIME GIVES THE STATE THE METHOD IT NEEDS TO SUPPRESS NOT ONLY THE SPEECH OF DISGUSTING PERSONS WE ALL DON’T LIKE, BUT ALSO THOSE WITH WHOM WE AGREE, BUT ‘THE POWERS THAT BE’ DISAGREE’.
Don’t like President Obama’s policies or legislation? Must be a racist. Wait a minute – that’s hate speech!
Oh wait, it only works one direction…
I’m one of those old coots who think the 16th Amendment (the federal income tax) amendment and the IRS should be abolished immediately! And, of course, we should abolish the 17th Amendment, as well, and go back to State Governors appointing of U.S. Senators.
Funny how both these amendments came about during the progressive administration of Woodrow Wilson, one of the most evil men to ever hold the office of president.
And more power was usurped by the federal government.
I completed and submitted my federally-mandated tax forms on April 9! The good news is I didn’t have to pay. The bad news is my meager refund was eaten up by the electronic-send-in-the-forms thing.
Friend sent this in last night he’s over there in the Suck . . . S.L.There was this new Intell chick at this evening’s base defense meeting. The Company Commander asked a couple of basic introductory questions and it went something like this . . .Major: “So where are you from?”
Major: “No, I mean where are you from in the States?”
Major: “What about your husband, where’s he from?”
Chick: “I don’t have a husband, I have a wife and she’s from Florida too.”
The whole room erupted.
True story . . .
