Just because

Yes, it's good the Journal News is getting the kicking it deserves;

what pisses me off is the apparent concern solely with how their crap affects LE officers, and little to nothing said about all the other citizens it's screwing with.

And one more wonderful, wonderful result of Obama's actions in northern Africa/mid-East:
A stunning story out of Egypt on Friday (HT: Jonathan Schanzer at FDD) after a raid in northern Sinai uncovered a cache of anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles bound for Hamas-controlled Gaza. The discovery was made in Be’r al-Hefn near Arish in an area known as a transit point for materials headed for the smuggling tunnels running from Sinai into Gaza. 

The most remarkable part of the story is that the missiles were American-made, arriving from Libya according to multiple reports.

And some more information to tick off all the right people:
If you believe everything that Michael Moore says in Bowling for Columbine and his books, then you would think that "pro-gun" people are white racists, and that "gun control" would be a wonderful way to help minorities. But a look at America's past reveals what historian Clayton Cramer has accurately called "The Racist Roots of Gun Control."

One of my nightmares

We've had a number of cases of someone coming to the attention of the EffingBI and essentially being guided along into a terror attack, with them carefully providing dud explosives and such.

So what happens when someone who's heard the news decides to put together his own explosives and trade them out for the dud?

And more wonders to come from the fast-food rejects of the TSA

Few people know that $105 million of their taxpayer dollars are going to fund 37 VIPR teams in 2012, whose purpose is to “augment” the security of any mode of transportation. They don’t realize that these VIPR teams can show up virtually anytime, anywhere and without warning, subjecting you to a search of your vehicle or person. 

That’s not a fringe observation, by the way. Even the most mainstream news outlets have reported on the problems of these random checkpoints. And it’s being observed by mainstream news personalities, not just consumer advocates with a long list of grievances from their constituents. 

But almost no one noticed when the Department of Homeland Security signaled its intent to broaden the scope of its off-airport searches even more in 2013. Buried deep in the Federal Register in late November was a notice that could dramatically shift the focus of transportation security. It involves the government’s efforts to “establish the current state of security gaps and implemented countermeasures throughout the highway mode of transportation” through the Highway Baseline Assessment for Security Enhancement (BASE) program.

I'd forgotten about this part of Sen. Schumer's hypocrisy

Not only does Schumer carry a handgun, the New York City Police Department also provides armed escorts for the good senator. In fact, the Government Accounting Office -- the investigative arm of the US Congress -- slammed Schumer's use of police resources for personal protection. It's clear that Schumer believes he's special. He wishes to ban private citizens' ownership of firearms, while he enjoys layers of protection.
"No wonder Chuckie Schumer shoots his mouth off so much - he's able to protect himself," says a 25-year police veteran.

Also, a check of Pistol License records shows that Senator Schumer possesses an "unrestricted" pistol permit, a rarity in New York City. Licenses are distributed in different categories in the Big Apple: Target Permits allow only use of a firearm at a licensed firing range; Premises Permits allow weapons to be kept in a home or apartment; Restricted Permits allow the gunowner to carry their firearms concealed but only within the purview of their job (security, jewelers, armored car guards, etc.). So it's evident that Senator Schumer has two sets of rules -- one for Americans and one for himself.
So, he and Feinstein and Boxer and the others: not only do they have the permits they think the commoners should be denied, they also demand special treatment from the police.  For that matter, I wonder how many private armed security people they have around, the way Nanny Bloomberg does?

Hoplophobia and gun bigotry really is

a mental disorder.  Maybe Green's indulging in a bit of projection, like so many of them?

Among the ways the 'Justice' Department screws people over and abuses the law.  And who's in the middle of it?
This practice was immortalized in a series of Department of Justice directives, one of which, signed June 16, 1999, is known as the “Holder Memorandum in honor of its drafter, the current attorney general, at that time the deputy attorney general in charge of the Criminal Division at the DOJ. (In 2006, United States District Judge Lewis Kaplan in Manhattan declared the DOJ’s practice unconstitutional, a decision affirmed by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Kaplan wrote that the corporation only “refused to pay because the government held the proverbial gun to its head.”)

"If you make less than $250k", etc.  Bullshit.

Over at Democrat Underground: My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don't feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease will hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over $400,000.
Proper response:  "You voted for it."

 So Al Gore sold his network to Al Jazeera because 'they were in tune with his beliefs', AND made sure it went through before Jan. 1 so he could skip those taxes he whines that the rich don't pay enough of; now we find out Feinstein's husband in involved, too.
Next time she says a damned word about 'the rich not paying enough', etc., I want someone to bring this up.  Loudly.

And the fallout from the Journal News being assholes has begun.  Big surprise, right?
 This one lady whose been stalked for years in West Chester County. She finally found peace, two years without the stalker contacting her. Two days after that paper released her information she gets hangups all night long. She lives in fear, her and her three daughters.”

Speaking of the Law of Unintended Consequences*, those wonderful 'eco-friendly bulbs have yet another drawback:
"Money saving, compact fluorescent light bulbs emit high levels of ultra violet radiation, according to a new study. Research at Long Island’s Stony Brook found that the bulbs emit rays so strong that they can actually burn skin and skin cells. 
“The results were that you could actually initiate cell death,” said Marcia Simon, a Professor of Dermatology. 
Exposure to the bulbs could lead to premature aging and skin cancer, according to doctors."

 And now son is here, so you'll have to go play without me.

That dishonest little shit Kellerman is at it again

"Oh, if only the medical profession was still properly studying the gun problem!", etc.
In the AMA journal, of course; bigots of a kind hang together, don't they?

Expect the CDC clowns who apparently have too little to do studying viruses and such to start agitating for more money for this 'socially-vital activity'.

Thanks to Keith for the link

Politically-correct racists in positions of power

in New Jersey, for instance.
"We demand diversity(as long as it's the right kind of diversity)!"
I'm going to borrow a phrase from the Dutchman:
I've said it before and I'll repeat: these collectivist pukes are more race-obsessed than the Nazi Gauleiter of 1930's Lower Swabia.

Ah, professional journalists: screw the breaking of law, just let Gregory 'apologize' and let the DC Police 'save face and move on'.  Deity forbid they treat him like anyone else, oh no, can't have that!
This line pisses me off enormously as well: After all, would an African-American in Southeast D.C. who violated a gun law -- and wouldn't acknowledge it -- get a break? Of course not.
Yeah, the white or yellow or whatever people arrested in DC on these idiot laws, ignore them... Damn these bastards, they can't do ANYTHING without bringing race into it!
AND, the idiocy of hinting that some commoner violating this law would 'get a break if they acknowledge it'... is he actually stupid enough to believe this, or does he just think it pushes his preferred narrative along?  Shuster, you're either a dishonest bastard or a fool, and I think it's the former.

Piers Morgan: Fake-photo journalist and crook and general slimeball:

even more so than I'd known:
Now imagine you have £20'000 in the bank just collecting dust with it's piddly little 1.5% interest rate, crying out for some real investement. Well in 2000 Piers Morgan found himself in this very position! Unfortunately for him he's Piers Morgan, and thus he is shit at almost everything, including crime. He got caught playing the stock market and suddenly found himself the subject of an investigation. Fortunately for him he's Piers Morgan, and thus is an expert at weasling his way out of nearly any situation. (Notice I said nearly.) He was found to be in breach of financial journalism's sacred code of conduct but for reasons unknown he managed to keep his job. The fact he blamed the two columnists that wrote for his financial section may have helped. They lost their jobs. Oh and during their trial, it turned out Piers hadn't invested £20'000 in Viglin all along! He'd actualy invested £67'000 under his wifes name.

So a few years passed, Piers made more monumental fuck-ups along the way and pretty much drove the Daily Mirror into the ground. By 2004, it was the last straw. Silly ol' Piers went and authorised the publication of photos fresh from the war in Iraq, which seemed to show British Troops abusing and mistreating Iraqi POWs. Unfortunately for him he's Piers Morgan, and the photos turned out to be fake and he wasn't going to be able to get around this one. He was fired the paper had to actually run stories on their front pages for about a week offering their most sincere apologies and making lame excuses. It was pretty pathetic.
Clarkson was furious, as any of us would have been. Fortunately for him he's Jeremy Clarkson and happened to be attending the British Press Awards, along with that cheeky scamp Piers Morgan! So what did he do? Did he confront the invasive little shit and give him a piece of his mind? Not quite. Rather than talk it out Clarkson slowly walked over to Piers and cracked him straight in the face, then he calmly left.
Okay so it's not quite 'raped to death by grizzly bears on PCP' as Piers Morgan actually deserves, but you take the small victories where you can...

You’d think they would know their American history.

Taxes started the debate, going to take the colonials firearms started the war. Ah, but the history they know is the PC version; and they don't care, anyway.

Some of the new taxes on people Obama promised wouldn't see higher taxes.

From one of the countries Feinstein says we should improve our image with:
Hundreds of empty, parked cars go up in flames in France each New Year’s Eve, set afire by young revellers, a much lamented tradition that remained intact this year with 1193 vehicles burned, Interior Minister Manuel Valls says.
His announcement on Tuesday was the first time in three years that such figures have been released.
The conservative government of former President Nicolas Sarkozy had decided to stop publishing them in a bid to reduce the crime – and not play into the hands of car-torching youths who try to outdo each other.

'Freeloader's manifesto'; yeah, that covers it.

Ever heard of Sad Alice Said?

I hadn't either; son pointed me to them.  They've got a Facebook page here

America doesn't have a gun problem, it has

a gang problem."
Yep.  Check the numbers:
So what is happening in Chicago to drive it to the gates of hell ahead of Zimbabwe and Rwanda?

A breakdown of the Chicago killing fields shows that 83% of those murdered in Chicago last year had criminal records. In Philly, it’s 75%. In Milwaukee it’s 77% percent. In New Orleans, it’s 64%. In Baltimore, it’s 91%. Many were felons who had served time. And as many as 80% of the homicides were gang related.

Chicago’s problem isn’t guns; it’s gangs. Gun control efforts in Chicago or any other major city are doomed because gangs represent organized crime networks which stretch down to Mexico, and trying to cut off their gun supply will be as effective as trying to cut off their drug supply.

More at the post.  Which reminds me of something I posted on before:
  ...Can't remember the ladies name, the show was on KTOK in the afternoons. Not my favorite show, but tended to listen most days.

One afternoon I was driving south and had her on while she was going on about the 'murder epidemic' in the U.S. and touching on the need for more gun laws(early 80's I believe) because things were 'so much better' in Britain, etc. A guy called in and pointed out the same problem noted in Kevin's post, that if you weren't an inner-city minority male, you weren't facing an 'epidemic; that the mess there was primarily gang- and drug-related, and that if you subtracted those numbers from our homicide rate, our numbers were actually very close to those of Britain. She asked him "Then what's the answer?" and he replied he didn't know what the whole answer to it was.

And she absolutely savaged him. "How dare you say such things without having an answer for them", etc. And the next guy who called in started off with "And he'll tell you 'some of his friends are black', won't he?", and the two of them spent the next couple of minutes talking about how obviously the guy was a racist, and so forth.

And I turned her off. And I never listened to her show again. That was the first time I can remember I actually got hit with the bullshit that taking note of a problem made you a racist/bigot/homophobe/(fill in the insult). 

 That was long before I heard Denny's term Race Warlord Poverty Pimp.  That was before it became a general club to yell RACIST!!! at anyone who brought up inconvenient facts.
It's the standard of the socialist left anymore.
And one of the big reasons the term 'racist' doesn't mean much anymore.

At least this corrupt piece of crap masquerading as a reverend

is honest: after guns, he'll want to ban knives.  And when that doesn't work, and we're in the same hole as (fG)Britain(only a bigger one)? 

Another piece from that article in Pravda on how important the 2nd Amendment is:
To this day, with the Soviet Union now dead 21 years, with a whole generation born and raised to adulthood without the SU, we are still denied our basic and traditional rights to self defense. Why? We are told that everyone would just start shooting each other and crime would be everywhere....but criminals are still armed and still murdering and to often, especially in the far regions, those criminals wear the uniforms of the police. The fact that everyone would start shooting is also laughable when statistics are examined.

While President Putin pushes through reforms, the local authorities, especially in our vast hinterland, do not feel they need to act like they work for the people. They do as they please, a tyrannical class who knows they have absolutely nothing to fear from a relatively unarmed population. This in turn breeds not respect but absolute contempt and often enough, criminal abuse.

For those of us fighting for our traditional rights, the US 2nd Amendment is a rare light in an ever darkening room. Governments will use the excuse of trying to protect the people from maniacs and crime, but are in reality, it is the bureaucrats protecting their power and position. In all cases where guns are banned, gun crime continues and often increases. As for maniacs, be it nuts with cars (NYC, Chapel Hill NC), swords (Japan), knives (China) or home made bombs (everywhere), insane people strike. They throw acid (Pakistan, UK), they throw fire bombs (France), they attack. What is worse, is, that the best way to stop a maniac is not psychology or jail or "talking to them", it is a bullet in the head, that is why they are a maniac, because they are incapable of living in reality or stopping themselves.

The excuse that people will start shooting each other is also plain and silly. So it is our politicians saying that our society is full of incapable adolescents who can never be trusted? Then, please explain how we can trust them or the police, who themselves grew up and came from the same culture?

No it is about power and a total power over the people. There is a lot of desire to bad mouth the Tsar, particularly by the Communists, who claim he was a tyrant, and yet under him we were armed and under the progressives disarmed. Do not be fooled by a belief that progressives, leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are not marching in lock step of their ideology. They hate guns in the hands of those who think for themselves and do not obey without question. They hate guns in those whom they have slated for a barrel to the back of the ear.

So, do not fall for the false promises and do not extinguish the light that is left to allow humanity a measure of self respect.

 The original:

 The current:

Hey, but self-respect- your life, for that matter- doesn't really mean squat to the progressives:
Up to 60,000 patients die on the Liverpool Care Pathway each year without giving their consent, shocking figures revealed yesterday.

A third of families are also kept in the dark when doctors withdraw lifesaving treatment from loved ones. 

Despite the revelations, Jeremy Hunt last night claimed the pathway was a ‘fantastic step forward’.
 Of course he does; it's a wonderful way to get rid useless kulak- er, no-longer-contributing peasants- ah, he'll go with 'those whose quality of life no longer measures up.'

Back to magazines:
And, if you will, one more stark and simple thing:  Americans have historically modeled their choices of home protection and personal defense handguns on what the cops carried.
 The reasoning is strikingly clear. The cops are the experts on the current criminal trends. If they have determined that a “high capacity” semiautomatic pistol and a .223 semiautomatic rifle with 30-round magazines are the best firearms for them to use to protect people like me and my family, they are obviously the best things for us to use to protect ourselves and our families .

Well now, here's some nice shirt & sticker ideas!

Now, having done my duty of stirring up dissension 'mongst the populace, I have some things to do.
Indoors, it being overcast and cold outside.

One last thing tonight: fit to worry us

and scare hell out of the gun bigots and hoplophobes and socialists:
It wasn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that were sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands , M1 carbines, and Enfield .303s were gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants—of which every gun store always seems to have 10-20—were gone. So was their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.

Attention, Professor Howard Good: we didn't start this,

and the people who did didn't want this to be 'intelligent public discussion'. 
It appears you don't like the backdraft; deal with it.
Howard Good, a journalism professor at the State University of New York at New Paltz, called the critics' response childish and petulant.

"It doesn't move the issue of gun control to the level of intelligent public discussion," he said.

"Instead, it transforms what should be a rational public debate on a contentious issue into ugly gutter fighting."
That would be the same Professor Howard Good who lives in the Village of Highland in Ulster County, New York. He is fortunate that his 1,944 square foot raised ranch house built in 1972 has a full basement.

Time to call your Stupid Party congresscritter

and raise hell about this.  If true, it's not just a cave, it's surrender.  And should be treated as such by us.
The crucial email is the one sent at 3:06 pm on the 27th. The source notes that Newtown would not have been prevented if Feinstein’s bill had been law, but allows that the Republicans may assist in banning “high-capacity magazines” and move on background checks, along with mental health and enforcement of existing law.

 And let us not forget, in all this, that for a crime which would've seen anyone else arrested the next day, the DC PD is still 'investigating' Gregory.  Translated, "We're going to keep 'investigating' until it hopefully goes away.  I mean, arrest a journalist?  We can't treat him like we would a disabled vet or somebody!"

So, get rid of 'high-capacity' mags and get rid of privacy... yeah, that's a GREAT effing idea!
I want to see some of the idiots behind this idea opening the door to a ninja-suited SWAT team insisting they're going to search 'or else' because "Your online buying pattern indicates you're planning something."  See how much they like it.

Gun-bigot reasoning: Trash any Amendment you don't like, declare an organization of citizens a terrorist organization, and torture politicians who won't go along; Donald Kaul, you are invited to kiss my ass.  How about we decide the 1st Amendment is more trouble than it’s worth and restrict the ability of journalists and commentators to cause damage?  Would you like that?

From bloody Pravda:
 These days, there are few few things to admire about the socialist, bankrupt and culturally degenerating USA, but at least so far, one thing remains: the right to bare arms and use deadly force to defend one’s self and possessions.
 Of course being savages, murderers and liars does not mean being stupid and the Reds learned from their Civil War experience. One of the first things they did was to disarm the population. From that point, mass repression, mass arrests, mass deportations, mass murder, mass starvation were all a safe game for the powers that were. The worst they had to fear was a pitchfork in the guts or a knife in the back or the occasional hunting rifle. Not much for soldiers

Yeah, cops know how much good restraining orders do

against actual bad guys:
“Did Ned threaten you — physically, I mean?”
“Said I belong to him and no one else. That’s about it. But I know what he means.”
“What did the police say?”
“The last cop, as he was leaving, whispered to me to get a gun.”

 From Kevin a while back on the subject:

Remember the 'no-fly' list? The one the Bradys and CSGV

and other gun bigots say that if you're on you should be barred from owning guns?  The one that
they won't tell you if you're on,
if you find out you're on it they won't confirm you're on it,
won't tell you why,
and won't say what you can do to get off it?

The bastards don't even want to tell the judge what their arguments are for the damned list.
 Alsup, who sits in San Francisco, also refused the Justice Department's offer to show him affidavits from law enforcement officials which the government would not share with Ibrahim or her attorneys.
"Here the government seeks to affirmatively use allegedly privileged information to dispose of the case entirely without ever revealing to the other side what its secret evidence might be," Alsup wrote in an order filed last week (and posted here). "Only in the rarest of circumstances should a district judge, in his or her discretion, receive ex parte argument and evidence in secret from only one side aimed at winning or ending a case over the objection of the other side. Here, the government has not justified its sweeping proposal."

 "It has gone so far as even to redact from its table of authorities some of the reported caselaw on which it relies! This is too hard to swallow," Alsup wrote.
 This is bloody disgusting.  The .gov should NEVER be allowed to get away with crap like this; the fact that they thought they could... it doesn't say good things.
