"If Bush had done this-", etc.,

you know the drill:
BLITZER: What was said?
WOODWARD: It was said very clearly, you will regret doing this.

BLITZER: Who sent that e-mail to you?

WOODWARD: Well, I'm not going to say.

BLITZER: Was it a senior person at the White House?

WOODWARD: A very senior person. And just as a matter -- I mean, it makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters, 'you're going to regret doing something that you believe in, and even though we don't look at it that way, you do look at it that way.'

I'm not holding my breath, but it would be nice if some of those journalists remembered that idea called 'reporting' and actually did some of it.  Maybe this will help.  Not likely; a roundup over at Insty.

So Howler Cuomo and minions decided they need to exempt the cops from the bill they didn't bother to read before shoving through, AND
...but those restrictions will be changed so those types of weapons can be used on the sets of television shows and movies being shot in New York.
Screw the citizens of NY, but the TV and movie weenies need to be kept happy; they have the proper attitudes and bring in lots of money.

The Dutchman seems to be more right all the time:
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.

Sooner or later the Big One won't be needed; Californicated is just going to collapse.
As Erin put it, 'Green is the new black(out).'
As California's cap-and-trade program kicks in this year, the number of refineries will continue to go down, and the price of gasoline will continue to rise.
California already has some of the nation's highest electricity prices -- 39 percent higher than the national average -- and those will continue to rise as the state begins to enforce both its renewable energy mandate and cap-and-trade programs.
...Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that California will once again face rolling blackouts starting in 2015, thanks to the loss of conventional plants and unreliability of wind and solar energy due to weather fluctuations.

I'll add something about this line: The cap-and-trade law will at least spare residential consumers and utility companies part of the added pain with rebates and special allowances.  No, it won't; they might not be directly paying the increase, but the prices of EVERYTHING will go up more because of it, and they're damn well paying that.

California, you wanted it; you've got it.

A: Anyone who believes the White House and DHS 'didn't know about the release' is a fool.
B: I'm wondering what the payoff for the DHS clown is?

A fine summation of the Republican Party:
If the roles were reversed, Democrats would never have let the nominee get confirmed. Thanks to the GOP, we have a Washington where stellar candidates such as John Bolton and Miguel Estrada do not get confirmed, but a pro-Iranian anti-Israeli dolt like Chuck Hagel gets through.

Lady, you want to make that choice for yourself, go ahead; but do not demand that I do so.
During the rally, one female protester — wearing an Obama hat — told WGCL-TV that using a firearm in self-defense “is not an option.” 
“It’s not an option,” she repeated. 
The reporter then asked her, “But what if someone is trying to kill you?” She replied, “They’ll just have to kill me.”
