Bunch of people in ATF and DoJ need to be fired.

disbarred, where appropriate.  Prosecuted, those who caused this crap in the first place and made false accusations.  All benefits removed.

Hey, I'm not suggesting lampposts and ropes(yet), so I'm being generous here.

I wonder if these dirtbags have any idea what they've done to morale and the image of the agencies with this?  Or care?

“A re-examination of the Commission’s approach to the Internet and other emerging technologies is long overdue,” she wrote, adding that “the Commission has not adapted with” a changing world.

Warning against “turning a blind eye to the Internet’s growing force in the political arena,” Ravel said that “this effort to protect individual bloggers and online commentators” has been “stretched to cover slickly-produced ads solely on the Internet.”
Hey, Ravel, I think control-freaks who dislike the Constitution- such as yourself- who make such suggestions should be given suitable acquaintance with a flagrum in the town square.  Just to remind you and the others that YOU'RE NOT OUR GODS-DAMNED BOSSES.

More of that 'non-existent vote fraud' the Democrats keep insisting doesn't happen.  Except when it does.
How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted. Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010.
That's a bunch of people.  And why are Democrats so against voter-ID laws?
Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections.

Ah, but this is a DEMOCRAT calling her a whore,

so it's not bad.
That starts about the 1:00 mark

Californicated is run by the insane.
We live in the state of California, are we able to purchase a Berkey water filter system?
"California recently adopted AB 1953 / SB 1334 & 1395 / HSC Section 116875, commonly referred to as the "no lead law". Of course Berkey products do not contain lead, but under this measure until the state of California confirms this fact, Berkey is forced to suspend shipment of water purification systems to the state of California. This is a complex law and shipment will resume to California when we get clarification on how to proceed on obtaining a lead free certification as defined by the state of California. We ship to all other states with the exception of Iowa. If you are purchasing a Berkey system as a gift to be shipped to someone in another state, we accept payment from residents in all 50 states."

An extraordinary number of Bellevue Hospital staffers called in sick on Friday rather than treat the city’s first Ebola patient — and those who showed up were terrified to enter his isolation chamber, sources told The Post.

“The nurses on the floor are miserable with a ‘why me?’ attitude, scared to death and overworked because all their co-workers called out sick,” one source said
Comment at Ace:
This is a very real problem caused by the CDC's lackadaisical negligence from the start. We are now fighting a war against plague on our own shores. Our doctors and nurses are the soldiers in that war -- they are most likely to be killed fighting it.

If you give your soldiers a series of flawed protocols and inadequate training, and just insist when they get sick that it's all their fault, what do you think your soldiers are going to do?

Actions have consequences. Incompetency has consequences. Not taking sufficient precautions to make sure your soldiers have a fighting chance has consequences.

I don't even want to speculate what nurses' reactions will be if anyone at Bellevue now gets sick.

Turkey gets all bent out of shape when this genocide is brought up.  Tough shit.

Stolen from Denny:
Early one morning an elderly retired Marine yelled to his wife:
“Honey, come see what I created! It’s an abstract panorama depicting the 6 years of the Obama presidency”
She yelled back: “Flush the toilet and come eat your breakfast!”

Having been beat down to my socks last night I forgot

to relay that data for the ladies; late, but here 'tis

Small dump, but it's data

'Higher Education'...

One of my first papers in college was about Gertrude Stein’s "Three Lives." I happened not to enjoy the book, and so focused my paper on its failings. When I received the paper back, I was completely horrified to discover that I’d gotten an F. The professor’s comments filled the margins—things like "you write like a conservative," comparisons to Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter, and the (still absurd) statement that "an intellectual reads with sympathy for the protagonist."
After discussion had ended, one professor continued to rail at the hurtfulness of the photo until one of the fraternity members actually showed it to him. He was visibly surprised by its banal lack of sexiness, but quickly recovered to tell us that “any woman” would find the image offensive. I told him that I (the only woman present at this point) had seen the image previously and was not offended. Surprised again, he proceeded to chastise me for being ignorant of the “history of womanhood” and “cut off from my femininity.”
And people go into horrendous debt for this crap.

Dana Loesch has words for Media Matters; they won't like them.

"But you need a FACTORY to make guns!"  Except when you don't.

And from the bad side of Canada,

we have William Thomas, who'd have to superglue his lips to Obamas' ass to get any better grip.  Short version:
"Obama is wonderful, and NO President has ever faced the opposition or dislike that he has!  What's wrong with you people?"

Yep.  The crap the left threw at Bush(and Rice, and Powell and on and on) never really happened, it seems.  Or doesn't count.  Because Obama.  One excerpt for you to gag on:
What America has in Obama is a head of state with vitality and insight and youth. Think about it, Barack Obama is a young Nelson Mandela. Mandela was the face of change and charity for all of Africa but he was too old to make it happen. The great things Obama might do for America and the world could go on for decades after he’s out of office.

America, you know not what you have.

The man is being challenged unfairly, characterized with vulgarity and treated with the kind of deep disrespect to which no previous president was subjected. It’s like the day after electing the first black man to be president, thereby electrifying the world with hope and joy, Americans sobered up and decided the bad old days were better.
Amazing, isn't it? 
You'll notice he doesn't come right out and say "You're RACIST!", I'm guessing he thought the 'bad old days' bit covered it without his having to actually say it.

If you're thinking of going over and questioning any of this, don't bother; the comments are closed.  For some reason.

Valerie Jarrett? Really?

No, I'm not surprised either.
Practically lost in the 1,000-plus pages of records is an index that shows Jarrett was brought in to manage the fact that Holder lied to Congress after the story about the disastrous gun-running operation broke in the media. 
The files received by JW include three electronic mails between Holder and Jarrett and one from former U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke to Jarrett. The e-mails with Holder are all from October 4, 2011, a significant date because, on the evening of October 3rd, Sheryl Attkisson (then at CBS news) released documents showing that Holder had been sent a briefing paper on Operation Fast and Furious on June 5, 2010. The paper was from the director of the National Drug Intelligence Center, Michael Walther.

This directly contradicted Holder’s May 3, 2011 testimony to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, during which he stated that he, “probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” The October 4, 2011 date may also be significant because it came shortly after the August 30, 2011 resignation of U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke and reassignment of acting ATF director Kenneth Melson to the position of “senior forensics advisor” at DOJ.
Remember, in non-legal speak 'directly contradicted' means 'proves he lied his ass off'.

So the CDC won't quarantine people coming back from there,

and this idiot wouldn't quarantine himself, so now this

Top Men, I tell you.

Dana Loesch writes a book defending the 2nd Amendment, and posed on the cover with a EBR.  Usual Suspects saw cover

and lost their shit.

Book comes out.  Repeat.  And they immediately try to trash it.  They REALLY hate it when women don't act and speak the way they're supposed to.

And the fallout from Gunwalker continues

For the first time, the Department of Justice has provided a detailed description of 15,662 Fast and Furious-related documents it is withholding from Congress, the public and the press under executive privilege exerted by President Obama.
...The number of withheld documents is so extensive, that the list describing them is 1,323 pages long.
The Vaughn index raises questions about why some of the material is being withheld at all. For example, many of the emails are regarding press articles, television reports and other news items. Some of them are between then-Justice Department spokesman Tracy Schmaler and White House operative Eric Schulz. In some instances, the given description reads “email forwarding news items.” Why an email between two government spokesmen that forwards public news reports would be withheld under presidential executive privilege is not fully explained.
Because of what they were telling each other, maybe?
Other withheld documents are concerning Freedom of Information (FOI) requests I made in May of 2011. It’s unclear as to why the president would exert executive privilege to keep from turning over documents discussing “which office will respond” to my FOI requests. The Justice Department never properly responded to my requests.
Same.  Makes you think there's a lot of 'Don't tell her anything!  Delay, delay, delay!  We're screwed if she finds this out!'-type things, doesn't it?

Also withheld are communications surrounding the infamous Justice Department letter to Congress in 2011 which erroneously claimed there had been no “gunwalking” in Fast and Furious or any other case. Republicans in Congress subpoenaed the materials in hopes of pinpointing who knew, how high up, that the letter to Congress contained incorrect information. The Justice Department later retracted the letter, long after overwhelming proof of the gunwalking surfaced.
Change that to 'lied their ass off and claimed' and you'd be at the truth.

Other emails being kept secret are dated May 4, 2011 from Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer to other officials in the Justice Department about a news article revealing Breuer authorized the wiretap in Fast and Furious. The justification for the wiretap included a detailed narrative on the case, implying Breuer would have known that the gunwalking tactic was being used, contrary to his and the Justice Department’s claims. It’s unclear what news article is discussed in the withheld emails, but I reported this story for CBS News on that same date.
Lies, lies, and more.  Over and over, from Holder and Obama on down through the ATF brass.  No telling what all's there.

One week since the stitches came out,

and I now have a seriously painful bruise starting to show about 1/3 of my forearm down from the wrist.

This is gonna take a while...

Guess what Holder & Co. are claiming now?

The document details the Attorney General Holder’s personal involvement in managing the Justice Department’s strategy on media and Congressional investigations into the Fast and Furious scandal.  Notably, the document discloses that emails between Attorney General Holder and his wife Sharon Malone – as well as his mother – are being withheld under an extraordinary claim of executive privilege as well as a dubious claim of deliberative process privilege under the Freedom of Information Act.  The “First Lady of the Justice Department” is a physician and not a government employee.
Think that's the end of the games?  You wish.
...The 1307-page “draft” Vaughn index was emailed to Judicial Watch at 8:34 p.m. last night, a few hours before a federal court-ordered deadline.  In its cover letter, the Department of Justice asserts that all of the responsive records described in the index are “subject to the assertion of executive privilege.”

The Vaughn index explains 15,662 documents. Typically, a Vaughn index must: (1) identify each record withheld; (2) state the statutory exemption claimed; and (3) explain how disclosure would damage the interests protected by the claimed exemption.  The Vaughn index arguably fails to provide all of this required information but does provide plenty of interesting information for a public kept in the dark for years about the Fast and Furious scandal.
So the bastards are still playing games, still telling the judge to piss off, still trying to delay, delay, delay.

Among the things that ARE revealed,
  • Numerous emails that detail Attorney General Holder’s direct involvement in crafting talking points, the timing of public disclosures, and handling Congressional inquiries in the Fast and Furious matter.
  • President Obama has asserted executive privilege over nearly 20 email communications between Holder and his spouse Sharon Malone. The administration also claims that the records are also subject to withholding under the “deliberative process” exemption. This exemption ordinarily exempts from public disclosure records that could chill internal government deliberations.
  • Numerous entries detail DOJ’s communications (including those of Eric Holder) concerning the White House about Fast and Furious.
  • The scandal required the attention of virtually every top official of the DOJ and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). Communications to and from the United States Ambassador to Mexico about the Fast and Furious matter are also described.
 So, did Holder think that this would be dropped if he resigned, or at least get him personally away?  Think it would lessen the heat on Obama?  Hope it would let his minions at DoJ delay further?

Remember, his chief minion resigned not long ago when he got a letter demanding answers.  Probably with the same thoughts.

It's SJW day! Which means

some of the most idiotic crap you'll ever see.
First from someone trying to make excuses after multiple terrorist attacks in Canada:
 Second, a journalist letting the cat slip out of the bag

Third, a demonstration that with these assholes 'all women' actually means 'All women who think, speak and believe as we approve':
Wednesday afternoon, CNN anchor Carol Costello hyped newly released audio of Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol tearfully recounting her being physically assaulted during a fight the family was involved in last month by saying it was “quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across.” She grinned during the entire setup.
Other liberals piled on, seemingly delighted that the daughter of someone they disagree with politically was physically attacked. Talking Points Memo provided a partial transcript of the audio, including it in a list of the “best (or worst) moments from the audio.”

So saying "Blacks are too stupid to know what's going on" isn't racist

when THEY say it...
Chris Matthews: What about the attempt to intimidate them out of voting?

Corn: Well, that’s true. It’s happening…and when you do that– when people wanna vote or they’re thinking about voting in an election– they do get ticked off and it motivates them.

But…they are so disaffected or so distant from this election that they may not even know that they’re not being allowed to vote.
Even for a clown from Mother Jones, that's one of the most idiotic crap I've heard in a while.

Speaking of leftist dirtbags,
Continually failing upward, Hunter snagged a seat on the board of directors of taxpayer-subsidized, stimulus-inflated Amtrak, where he pretended not to be a lobbyist, but rather an “effective advocate” for the government railroad system serving the 1 percenters’ D.C.-NYC corridor.

So, where does a coke-abusing influence peddler go after raking in gobs of Daddy-enabled dough and abusing the U.S. Navy’s ill-considered generosity? Back to Cronyland! Hunter joined Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings — owned by a powerful Russian government sympathizer who fled to Russia in February — this spring. The hypocritical lobbyist-bashers at the White House deny he will be lobbying and deny any conflict of interest.
Meanwhile, Just Like You Joe was whipping up class envy in South Carolina last week. “Corporate profits have soared,” he railed, thanks to “these guys running hedge funds in New York,” who are to blame for “income inequality.” You know, like his son and brother and their Beltway back-scratching patrons.

Remember, when ATF treats its own agents this way,

you expect them to treat the commoners any better?
...The case, presented this morning to Judge James Donato in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California San Francisco Division, resulted in a dismissal of ATF’s proposal to terminate Cefalu, negative allegations expunged from his record, mitigation of legal fees, the agent’s retirement in good standing at the end of the month, and an undisclosed settlement*.

Cefalu had earlier won a stay in termination proceedings against him from the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board in October 2012. Basing his termination “on a single ... charge of lack of candor” related to his testimony in a criminal case “cannot be sustained," the Office of Special Counsel concluded, explaining Cefalu was sharing his opinions under cross-examination, had “fully disclosed” his limitations while sharing “subjective opinions based on … experience…and he was ‘sincere.’”
Tell the truth when it displeases the brass, and they'll do everything they can to screw you.  Including violate federal law.

In fact, Bureau management actions against Cefalu had been ongoing since he complained about an illegal wiretap plan in 2005. CNN reported in 2010 how the agent had been assigned to a do-nothing assignment as part of a culture of retaliation against agents who were vocal in protesting and exposing agency corruption and abuse.

"Why don't we have a Surgeon General?"

Because not even enough Democrats will vote for this partisan 2nd Amendment-hating hack.

"POTUS would not need an Ebola czar if the NRA, Republicans had not blocked his Surgeon General appointee," the liberal columnist E.J. Dionne tweeted on October 17.
Hey, Dionne, what about the doctor at the NIH who SHOULD'VE been taking care of this?  Except that she's in hiding because of the corruption she was caught at, and not doing the job.

In todays edition of "What the hell are you idiots doing with badges?"

we start with the Stockton CA PD:
Two other women were taken hostage as well, but were either thrown or jumped from the vehicle as it was speeding from police, both survived.
The beloved wife and mother was ultimately shot at least 10 times- not by the suspects, but by the police- 33 of them, who fired 600 rounds into the vehicle despite knowledge that it contained a hostage. Holt-Singh as well as two of the three suspects were killed in the barrage of bullets.
The department has defended its officers, saying they were worried the violence would escalate.
Really?  They had a freakin' nuke in the car?

Second, we go to Alpine TX, where Brewster County District Attorney Rod Ponton and the DEA both need to be removed from any position of authority.  And jailed for this idiocy.  And sued.  And Ponton disbarred.  The level of stupid and idiot in this... just freaking amazing.

Why might people lose faith in the psychiatric profession?

I don't know, maybe because you're a fucking disgrace, like Kenneth M. Glatt?
So many names are funneled to county health authorities through the system—about 500 per week statewide —that they have become, in effect, clerical workers, rubber-stamping the decisions, they said. From when the reporting requirement took effect on March 16, 2013 until Oct. 3, 41,427 reports have been made on people who have been flagged as potentially dangerous. Among these, 40,678—all but a few hundred cases—were passed to Albany by county officials, according to the data obtained by The Times....

Kenneth M. Glatt, commissioner of mental hygiene for Dutchess County, said that at first, he had carefully scrutinized every name sent to him through the Safe Act. But then he realized that he was just "a middleman," and that it was unlikely he would ever meet or examine any of the patients. So he began simply checking off the online boxes, sometimes without even reviewing the narrative about a patient.
Yeah, why would he waste his valuable time DOING HIS FUCKING JOB, when it's so much easier to just screw people over by not giving a damn?
"Every so often I read one just to be sure," Dr. Glatt, a psychologist, said. "I am not going to second guess. I don't see the patient. I don't know the patient." He said it would be more efficient—and more honest—for therapists to report names directly to the Division of Criminal Justice Services, which checks them against gun permit applications.
Yeah, you can't be bothered to DETERMINE FACTS, can you?  That would not only mean doing actual work, it would mean possibly disagreeing with another of your profession, and we can't have that, now can we?  After all, what's screwing  some citizen out of one of his basic rights compared to that?

Congratulations, Governor Howler, you've managed to both give people reason NOT to seek help if they think they need it, and revealed large parts of the medical profession as being lower than pond scum.  Well Done!

From one of the only real reporters out there

For more than two years, the Justice Department has ignored Congressional requests to disclose where all of the Fast and Furious weapons are turning up. Now, documents withheld from Congress, but provided to me by a source, give a predictably disturbing picture of the violent landscape in which the weapons are being used.

Uriel Patino is a chief firearms trafficking suspect whom ATF secretly advised U.S. gun shops to sell weapons to. According to trace documents, guns that Patino trafficked are associated with 128 firearms traces to date, including 15 cases in 2014. A trace indicates a firearm likely turned up at a crime scene.
“These weapons that have been recovered recently in 2014 haven’t even been reported to Congress,” says an official source familiar with the ongoing investigation into the government’s conduct. “It’s a life and death situation. People are using these weapons at shootouts, gang-related activity and cartel activity.”
Which is exactly what Holder & Co. wanted; they just didn't want their fingerprints to be found on it.

Wonder just how many bodies- so far and to come- are piled up at Holders' feet, his and Obamas'?

More of that 'non-existent' vote fraud we're not supposed to worry about

Admitting his confidence in Cook County ballot integrity is shaken, State Representative Candidate Jim Moynihan (R-56), was shocked today when he tried to cast a vote for himself and the voting machine cast it for his opponent instead.
While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race. He notified the election judge at his polling place and demonstrated that it continued to cast a vote for the opposing candidate’s party. Moynihan was eventually allowed to vote for Republican candidates, including his own race. It is unknown if the machine in question (#008958) has been removed from service or is still in operation.
Removed?  Why?  It's doing exactly what the authorities want it to...

Sharon Coolidge of the Cincinnati Enquirer tweeted coverage of the event, and it seemed to be the same tired arguments that have been repeated endlessly, until she reported this:
Melowese Richardson, convicted of voter fraud and then released early from prison, called to stage for a "welcome home."
— Sharon Coolidge (@SharonCoolidge)
Remember Melowese Richardson?  She was a poll worker who used her position to vote for Obama multiple times. She is one of the few who ever gets caught for voter fraud and was sentenced to five years in prison.
...At an event that was all about voting law, Ohio Democrats invited a person guilty of multiple counts of voter fraud to speak – to "welcome her back" and applaud her. They invited her up to the stage, like some sort of hero.
No wonder they hate voter ID laws so badly.

Next time someone starts that 'evil Stupid Party cutting medical funding' bullshit, point them to why the NIH as well as the CDC has blown all trust.  And a hell of a lot of the money that could've been spent on actual DISEASE CONTROL if they hadn't wasted it on social engineering.

I went to the range today, just to give things a try.  Handguns are still left-hand only(no surprise), but after ten rounds of rifle the hand/arm advised me they were done for the day.  This recovery is going to take a while.

Girls in large numbers taking up empowering sport involving noisy tools;

usual suspects lose their shit.

Parents and girls tell usuals to sod off.

And freedom advances another little step.

Some of that 'non-existent vote fraud', it seems

isn't exactly 'non-existent'
“A person wearing a Citizens for a Better Arizona T-shirt dropped a large box of hundreds of early ballots on the table and started stuffing the ballot box as I watched in amazement,” said A.J. LaFaro, chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party.

Hmmm, wonder if, when it starts here, it'll be some kind of 'workplace violence', or if the usual suspects will just start screaming RACIST!! to try and shut it up?
A man in his 30s was shot by police in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., earlier this afternoon after he hit two members of the Canadian Forces with his car and led police on a dramatic high-speed chase.
“The individual who struck the two CAF members with his car is known to federal authorities, including the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team,” said the statement from Jason MacDonald, the prime minister’s spokesman.
“Federal authorities have confirmed that there are clear indications that the individual had become radicalized. As Canada’s national security agencies have said, Canadians should remain vigilant.”

Now THAT'S a cough drop!

The last steri-strip just came off,

so here's the only selfie I plan on taking:
Nothing humongous, and not worth showing in public("Well, it's not a leopard bite but-"), but all mine.

Barrel question

Yeah, still thinking about my AR-10 idea, parts and so forth.  Which brings me to the question:
Anybody know of a company that makes AR-10 barrels that would chamber one for a (for this rifle) oddball cartridge?

'All women' my ass

And about what we'd expect from Giffords & Co.
Not only was the whereabouts of the meeting not announced until this morning but when the location was discovered and women who are for 2nd Amendment rights wanted to simply listen in on the conversation, they were kicked out of the meeting. Gifford’s group Americans for Responsible Solutions no longer announces where they will be pushing gun control on their website. 
Except Giffords wasn’t joined by all NH women leaders. There were no leaders from any women’s pro-2nd Amendment organizations invited. There were no NH women leaders from any of the gun owners’ organizations in the state. There were no women leaders from the Republican Party asked to the table and the very far left wing Zandra Rice Hawkins from Progress NH was invited.
Have to protect the echo chamber, y'know.  Far more important than, well, actually DISCUSSING anything.

Old name/new company, new M1 Carbines

History buffs and reenactors take note–Inland Manufacturing has announced the launch of their new incarnation of the old M1 Carbine line. That is right, I said Inland. But this is not the former division of General Motors that is known for its war time production of American arms. This is a new company with new production firearms.

We're supposed to trust any feds why, again?

The New York Observer reports that two former Assistant United States Attorneys say the Holder Justice Department engaged in deceit and corruption of justice in connection with the DOJ’s litigation against Sierra Pacific Industries, a California lumber company.

As a result of the allegations, a federal district judge has ordered the recusal from the case of every judge in the Eastern District of California. He reasons that the court may have been defrauded by the government, thus requiring the appointment of an outside judge to handle the matter going forward.
In a related case, a California state judge found that the investigation and prosecution of this matter by the state involved “egregious,” “pervasive,” and “reprehensible” abuses that amount to “government corruption.” The state court case “betray[ed] the primary purpose of the judicial system—to reveal the truth,” the judge stated.
Holder & Obamas' DoJ; lying their ass off, because so far they've gotten away with it.

Not just H&Os, of course; there's been problems there for a long time.  They do seem to have brought it to a new low, though.

Be it said: ANYBODY who causes a bunch of ATF agents

this kind of heartburn, I like.

After reading idiocy like this

that Sarah Hoyt found, and with a very achy arm, it's time to relax with science.  And I need some relaxation.

It seems FBI Director Comey has forgotten

 that oath to the Constitution, especially that 4th Amendment part.  The only proper reply to his threats is
"Fuck you, you sorry little control freak.  It is NOT our job to make it easy for you to read our mail and texts and files.  Apparently , has slipped your mind, you nasty little fascist."

This also fits into the "Why you're not (in this case) Hero Federal Agent anymore" line: because you think you have some overriding right to snoop in our lives.

Changes in Oklahoma's CCW law

"You are ALL under suspicion, comrade."

Yeah, that's one way around that troublesome Constitution thing you swore to uphold.  It's bullshit, and I'm amazed you'd try it

But then, we don't trust most of you anymore anyway, do we?

Speaking of,
Hmm. A government-funded initiative is going to “assist in the preservation of open debate” by monitoring social media for “subversive propaganda” and combating what it considers to be “the diffusion of false and misleading ideas”? The concept seems to have come straight out of a George Orwell novel.

The NSF has already poured nearly $1 million into Truthy. To what end? Why is the federal government spending so much money on the study of your Twitter habits?
We're supposed to trust ANY of these bastards why, again?

Update on general conditions

Yes, I can floss; ain't easy, but I can.

Driving, well, I can but I'm not going to be slamming quickly through gears for a while.

One of the hardest things about driving?  Reaching the left hand over/through to turn the key; my right just won't rotate that way yet.

The exercises for the arm/hand?  It hurts.  Have to do it anyway, but damn.
And yes, Peter, I plan to do them religiously.  But not overdo.  I damn sure don't want to have to repeat any of this.

Not having to secure a trash bag over my arm and worry about getting the brace/wrappings wet is nice.  There's a set of strips over the incision 'to be left until they fall off in about a week.'  Assuming I can get the angle, I will regale you with a picture of it once that happens.

That hand is still swollen as hell; be a few days before it starts looking normal.

The Security Staff don't care, they just want their scratches.  And munchies.

And now I think I'll try the exercise again, and then bitch and moan a bit before cleaning up.  'Night, all

My posting has been a bit off, so

a large batch of data tonight.

Data points for the ladies

Why does the NRA support these people?

Vermont State Senator Jean White, who has three consecutive A-ratings from the National Rifle Association, recently took money from a powerful anti-gun group in Vermont. Other top rated politicians in Vermont have also received smaller contributions from the group, Vermont Gun Sense. 

“I did take their contribution because I do basically support their position,” White said. “What I told them is that I do support some level of background checks.”
Wonderful, isn't it?

He won't even order serious action to whack ISIL, but President Lightbringer just authorized calling up reserves to fight ebola?
...I hereby determine that it is necessary to augment the active Armed Forces of the United States for the effective conduct of Operation United Assistance, which is providing support to civilian-led humanitarian assistance and consequence management support related to the Ebola virus disease outbreak
in West Africa
The troops currently in harms way with this are getting a whole FOUR HOURS of 'how to deal with ebola' training, and the Chief Asshole wants to add this in?  Just fucking wonderful, isn't it.

Add that to naming a Democrat Party hack as the 'ebola czar'
That Obama would appoint a long-time Democratic operative with zero public health or federal administrative experience tells us everything we need to know about how Obama views the Ebola panic: Ebola is a political problem for the White House, not a public health problem for the nation.

You don’t pick a former White House staffer to run a massive public health effort if you think you have a public health problem. You pick a former White House staffer if you view this as a political problem to be managed for the remaining weeks heading into the election.

Ace also has more on the clown who supposedly would already be in charge of this, but due to people finding out about the skeletons in the closet is in hiding, thus necessitating President McHopeyChangey to appoint ANOTHER hack to 'deal' with this.
And yeah, read to the end: The company who Lurie didn't favor makes a drug being used to treat ebola. Duncan was treated with it unsuccessfully, but other people were treated with it and lived.

Instead of funding an ebola cure, Lurie shepherded a flock of federal cash to a billionaire Democrat donor for a smallpox vaccine that "has not really panned out," as Hemingway reports.
More on the clown here.

More professionalism from the Secret Service:
In a letter to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Anderson claimed that a Secret Service agent asked a police sergeant to “wave a piece of paper” in order to “dupe” the suspect into thinking officers had a warrant.

Officers with the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department did not comply with the request, according to the police chief. Police officers ultimately determined that Secret Service agents had no legal basis to enter the resident’s home and the suspect didn’t actually threaten anyone. Fortunately, the situation was resolved without incident and law enforcement left.

In a past letter to then-Secret Service Director Julia Pierson and Assistant Director A.T. Smith, Anderson explained that the incident could have “escalated into a serious and/or embarrassing situation for both of our agencies” if MNPD officers complied with the Secret Service “directive.”
“I realized that I was being told, in a polite manner, to mind my own affairs,” Anderson recalled.
Apparently that oath to the Constitution doesn't carry much water for the SS nowadays.

On a happier note, ran across an ammo site; take a look, see what you think

One more reason every ATF, DoJ, EffingBI agent and everyone else involved

in Fast & Furious belongs in a cell.
Documents obtained through a lawsuit recently issued against the City of Phoenix by government watchdog Judicial Watch reveal a weapon from the Department of Justice's Operation Fast and Furious was used to injure two people in a 2013 gang-style assault on an apartment complex. When the incident occurred and during investigation afterward, police worked with federal law enforcement agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Department of Homeland Security, FBI and Drug Enforcement Agency in the case, raising suspicions the assault wasn't simply a typical, local gang shootout and prompted questions about the details of where the weapons that were used came from.

And get this:
Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley and Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa sent a letter to Assistant Attorney General James Cole late Thursday afternoon demanding more information about why DOJ failed to inform Congress of the connection between the AK-47 used in the assault and Fast and Furious as their investigation of the lethal program continues.
followed by
Assistant Attorney General James Cole, who played a large role in the cover-up of Operation Fast and Furious, announced his resignation from DOJ today.
Naw, nothing suspicious about that at ALL, right?  Been planning it for years for now, right?

The brace is off and the stitches out,

which is a great comfort.

Good: the incision is healing as it should.
Bad: you wouldn't believe how swollen my hand is*.  And I can tell it's going to take a while to work back to normal use of the right arm.
Shut up.  You know who I'm talking to.

Yes, I have some exercises to do, carefully.  Yes, I plan on doing them that way.  But tonight, I shall be able to floss my teeth; it will be glorious.

*No, no pictures.  Getting both hands in frame would be difficult, and the incision is covered with some "Just leave them until they come off" steri-strips, so you can't see it anyway.

Yes, a knife or club will kill you just as dead

as a gun.  So will a car, or hands.  Kind of amazing how many don't understand that.

I'm not counting the slimy bastards who pretend they don't so as to make self-defenders look guilty of crime.

Where Great Britain used to be:
The National Union of Students has rejected a call to condemn militant group Isis on the grounds that the motion was “islamophobic”, in a move which has promoted campaigners to accuse the body of being in the “stranglehold” of divisive “identity politics”.
Divide & conquer bullshit.  Condemn ISIL, it means 'YOU HATE MUSLIMS!'  The stupid agree, and too many fear being called a racist*, so they won't fight it.

* I know; but it still works as a club for the progzis to beat people with.

Prosecutors in South Carolina: a more miserable bunch

of sodding assholes you will not find.

This is disgusting.  On a horrible level.  Every one of them involved in this should be horsewhipped and then removed from office.  Preferably through a high window.  That's over lots of pointy rocks.

Yeah, using a fake as your 'fracking expert'

isn't a real good idea.
First of all, the Wolf Eagle study was arranged by Alisa Rich, an environmental engineer and Ph.D holder who is an expert in the field. That would have been great except for a couple of small problems. Rich is not an engineer and does not have a Ph.D.

That is a good question.  And warning.

How to 'deal' with racial attacks: ignore, and when you can't ignore blame the victims.  When the bad guys are black, that is.  Yeah, that'll work well.

Once more from celebritutes: "WE have guns, but we don't want you to."

I should get the stitches out later today; that will make me very happy

Why you're not Officer Friendly anymore, #317:

You raid the wrong address, take hours to figure that out, and then
Adams told FOX CT that he filled out a form to request payment from the New Haven Police Department to repair damages in his apartment from the incident. He claims the department said there was no record of the incident ever happening.
Isn't that just freaking wonderful?

Yeah, the CDC has top men

right on top of this.

Top. Men.
The CDC has announced that the second healthcare worker diagnosed with Ebola traveled by air Oct. 13, the day before she first reported symptoms.

The CDC is now reaching out to all passengers who flew on Frontier Airlines flight 1143 Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth. The flight landed at 8:16 p.m. CT.

But- but the chemical weapon thing was a Bush/Cheney lie!

All the right people said so!
From 2004 to 2011, American and American-trained Iraqi troops repeatedly encountered, and on at least six occasions were wounded by, chemical weapons remaining from years earlier in Saddam Hussein’s rule

In all, American troops secretly reported finding roughly 5,000 chemical warheads, shells or aviation bombs, according to interviews with dozens of participants, Iraqi and American officials, and heavily redacted intelligence documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
The American government withheld word about its discoveries even from troops it sent into harm’s way and from military doctors. The government’s secrecy, victims and participants said, prevented troops in some of the war’s most dangerous jobs from receiving proper medical care and official recognition of their wounds.
Congress, too, was only partly informed, while troops and officers were instructed to be silent or give deceptive accounts of what they had found. “ 'Nothing of significance’ is what I was ordered to say,” said Jarrod Lampier, a recently retired Army major who was present for the largest chemical weapons discovery of the war: more than 2,400 nerve-agent rockets unearthed in 2006 at a former Republican Guard compound.

Jarrod L. Taylor, a former Army sergeant on hand for the destruction of mustard shells that burned two soldiers in his infantry company, joked of “wounds that never happened” from “that stuff that didn’t exist.” The public, he said, was misled for a decade. “I love it when I hear, ‘Oh there weren’t any chemical weapons in Iraq,’ ” he said. “There were plenty.”

I've heard everything from 'There were none!' to 'Well, so  there were a few old ones, big deal.'  And none of them wanted to talk about those convoys to Syria, either.  Because "BUSH LIED!!", etc.

Also: every lawyer/politician in uniform involved in the shit listed should be fired.  Preferably from a cannon muzzle.
Rear Adm. John Kirby, spokesman for Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, declined to address specific incidents detailed in the Times investigation, or to discuss the medical care and denial of medals for troops who were exposed. But he said that the military’s health care system and awards practices were under review, and that Mr. Hagel expected the services to address any shortcomings.
Yeah, just like you've 'addressed the shortcomings' of Fort Hood, right?

You'll notice the NYeffingTimes whine that The discoveries of these chemical weapons did not support the government’s invasion rationale.  With no mention that the WMD problem was ONE of EIGHTEEN reasons given for the invasion.  Because all those others don't matter.

Things I'm reminded of by this arm

Typing one-handed sucks
Showering with a bag over your arm is awkward
Hard to reach some places
When you're used to wiping your butt with one hand, using the other is awkward
The sound of washing one hand: "DAMMIT!"
I had no left-hand holster
A self-loader would be easier to reload(still awkward), but the holster I was given works with a wheelgun; good thing I like them
Should one have a weak-side holster kept in reserve, just in case?
Yes, I try to do some weak-hand practice when at the range; this makes me glad I do
Paper plates can be wonderful

Unrelated, but want to mention: needed to order something from Primary Arms, and had a problem.  One e-mail and about an hour later, they fixed it.  Beats hell out of how Remington seems to do things. 
Makes me wish I had more money to spend at PA

Why you're not Officer Friendly anymore #89:

you're incompetent fools who can't read addresses and try to kill the family dog. In its yard. Where you're not supposed to be.

The CDC is run by idiots, who care more about being PC than about stopping the disease.
Of course, these are also the idiots whove been spending millions on 'ban guns' and 'don't drink soda' and then whine that they don't have enough money.

The modern university:  annoy the SJWs, get accused.  They won't tell you of what, or by who, and say defending yourself is evidence of guilt, but they insist they looooove free speech...

"Nobody wants to take your guns!"  Except when they do.

From these folks

Just two things this morning

What color line do you think President Lightbringer will draw on this(assuming he even takes notice)?

Head of the EffingBI says 'people shouldn't trust the government.'  Gee, tell us something we haven't figured out.

Note that this is coming from a guy who was whining that encryption is making it harder for LE to snoop on us...

That's it.  My wrist aches, I've got a headache, and no enthusiasm.

So trying to play half-assed 'air campaign and the Obama Coalition'

wins disaster; who could've im-
oh hell, I don't have sufficient snark or sarcasm to finish that.
America's plans to fight Islamic State are in ruins as the militant group's fighters come close to capturing Kobani and have inflicted a heavy defeat on the Iraqi army west of Baghdad.

The US-led air attacks launched against Islamic State (also known as Isis) on 8 August in Iraq and 23 September in Syria have not worked. President Obama's plan to "degrade and destroy" Islamic State has not even begun to achieve success. In both Syria and Iraq, Isis is expanding its control rather than contracting.
And there will be more losses, and more massacres, because Dear Leader doesn't WANT to win, or actually smash ISIL; hell, I think he sympathizes with them, and doesn't care if they and the turks commit a genocide of Kurds.

And most of our suckass media will cover for him as best they can, no matter what.

'Free speech'to the CSGV means "Say what we want you to,

or we'll try  to ruin you."
Yeah, I'd imagine they'd love to play Dzerzhinsky, camps, cells and all.

So let's start treating Mexico as the hostile government it is

Oh no, couldn't possibly be a connection, noooo....
The CDC hasn’t suggested reasons for the current uptick or its origin. Without that answer, some question whether the disease is being spread by the presence of tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children from Central America admitted to the U.S. in the past year.

The origin could be entirely unrelated.

However,a study published in Virology Journal, found EV-D68 among some of the 3,375 young, ill people tested in eight Latin American countries, including the Central American nations of El Salvador and Nicaragua, in 2013.

Though the U.S. government is keeping secret the locations of the illegal immigrant children, there are significant numbers of them in both cities in which the current outbreak was first identified, Kansas City, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois, according to local advocates and press reports.

Reading, writing, arithmetic and approved social activism; and they wonder why people think the schools are crap.

Humvee I can see, but someone explain why the hell the coroner needs any military arms for his job..
"I just wanted to protect myself," he said.
So buy a gun with your own damned money.

Why I despise the UN, Part Something:
“In the exercise of his rights and freedoms, everyone shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law [and] these rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations," it reminds mere “world citizens” of their place.
"Yes, you can have your freedoms, as long as they do not displease Us."

Mommies Demand: a more wretched hive of scum, villainy and bigotry

you'll not find.
Sadly, comments in the threat indicate that Moms Demand supporters are well aware that John Crawford was shot to death by Beavercreek, Ohio police for merely holding a BB gun and talking on the phone, and that another innocent shopper died of a heart attack in the panic after police killed Mr. Crawford.

They simply don’t care.

They think that having a difference of opinion over how to exercise your legal rights is worthy of a death sentence.
Outside of ISIL, and the Nation of Islam, anyway

Why so many think you're violent thugs and not Officer Friendly anymore

Beause you ARE violent thugs.

And in general data,

we have tonights batch

Ladies, only three points for examination tonight

I need a couple of new sources for this more-specialized field

Still alive.

typing still slow, though now can remove sling and use a finger to help.  So some links, because I'm suffering bloggagestipation

Obama sends praise to murderers' mosque; bad timing, or telling us something?

With the "Who needs that due-process crap?" from the 'feminists', this is scary as hell:
This bill does not implement a transfer of power between the victim and the perpetrator according to Yang; it aims to give victims a fighting chance.
“It gives the universities more incentive and pressure to find more evidence where there is none,” Yang said.

Robert F.  Kennedy Jr.: even when backtracking he's a nasty little fascist.

“WiFi is a human right.”  Yes, it's a Democrat.  Head of the PROMD.

Judge Napolitano: Someone In The White House Committed A Felony
Ah, you want to try to narrow that down to maybe one of the many?

There are always people who are convinced there is a rational, polite, gentle and civilized way to stop a violent sociopath from raping their eyesockets.

We call these sensitive souls "Morons."

So  Alan Gottlieb and the Second Amendment Foundation get no more support from me.

Yes, I'm still alive

Typing one-handed sucks as badly as I remembered, so not much else for now

I will instead leave you with some pictures
