If the IRS wasn't the corrupt organization it is, this

would already have an investigation running, with fines and jail time in the offing.  Considering the current status of that agency, they're probably doing everything they can to avoid dealing with it.

The Hill ignores two things:
It wasn't just Republicans who raised hell about the proposed bullet ban, a lot of Democrats weren't exactly happy about it either.
They ignore Jones, after this ban fell through, announcing ANY ammo for 5.56/223 was 'a threat to law enforcement', thus proving that what he was really after was banning everything possible.

So, what's your vote:
Jones wants out before some new news story involving ATF breaks
Jones wants out because Pres. HopeyChangeyPants is pissed at how badly the ban project went
Jones wants out because all the gun-bigot Democrats are pissed at him for dropping the ban
Jones is being run off by the above for blowing the project.

And the Serbia version of "We need registration and mental testing to own guns,

for public safety" is working out about like you'd expect.  With a bit more in the "Oh my!" department for the sanitation department:
The Serbian government asked people on Tuesday not to dispose of hand grenades and other munitions in the garbage, hoping to minimize accidents as it imposes tighter controls over privately held weapons.
Yeah, that'll work out well.
A police official told Reuters: "We have no clear idea how many pieces are kept illegally. Estimates vary anywhere between 200,000 and 900,000, so the more we can get through an amnesty, the better."
As usual it'll be mostly honest people who aren't a threat who turn stuff in; the bad guys won't.  Another Sarah Brady Paradise in the making.

I'm beat, therefore

I present the data without further comment

That he was charged is amazing; if he gets off with probation or something

it'll be one more Reason Why You're Not Officer Friendly Anymore.
A police officer in Maryland has been indicted on assault charges after prosecutors say he held a gun to the head of a man who hadn't committed a crime.

Police and prosecutors announced Friday that a grand jury indicted Prince George's County Officer Jenchesky Santiago on charges including first-degree assault and misconduct in office. He had been suspended with pay since police began investigating the incident last June, and now is suspended without pay.
In the People's Republic of Maryland, yet.

"After being caught trying to ban ammunition

I have no authority to ban, and otherwise being a dick, I have decided to resign

Before the investigations get too far along.  Now please leave me alone."
The jerk who'll be taking over the position is just as big a dirtbag, but just maybe the blowup on this will make him cautious.  We'll see.

Overall it's a good thing; the bastard should never have been confirmed in the position in the first place with his background.

Borrowing from Insty,

These little Junior Anti-Sex League members combine thuggishness and fragility in a particularly obnoxious way. They should be sent home until they are mature enough for college. And America. And no parent should pay tuition to a school that takes this sort of hysterical behavior seriously.
What behavior?
“If this is feminism, it’s feminism hijacked by melodrama,” she writes. “The melodramatic imagination’s obsession with helpless victims and powerful predators is what’s shaping the conversation of the moment, to the detriment of those whose interests are supposedly being protected, namely students. The result? Students’ sense of vulnerability is skyrocketing.”

Including, apparently, their vulnerability to articles in The Chronicle of Higher Education. As the protesters wrote on a Facebook page for their event, they wanted the administration to do something about “the violence expressed by Kipnis’ message.” Their petition called for “swift, official condemnation of the sentiments expressed by Professor Kipnis in her inflammatory article,” and demanded “that in the future, this sort of response comes automatically.”

And let's add this one for further illustration:
A student at Reed College has been banned from class for denying the existence of “rape culture” in the United States and arguing that the oft-repeated statistic that one in five women are raped at college is bogus.
...“[Other students] have said that things you have said in our conference have made them so upset that they have difficulty concentrating in other classes. I, as conference leader, have to do what is best for the well-being of the entire class, and I am therefore banning you from conference for the remainder of the semester.”

At least one student thinks giving True the boot was the right move, saying that True’s statements somehow represented a safety hazard.
Well, yeah, you get an attack of the vapors in class, who knows what could happen?

There's an awful lot of 'That data/video isn't available anymore' going around in Sodom on the Potomac.

Remember: the man who helped the SEALs get bin Laden is still sitting in a Pakistani prison, and President Selfie isn't doing a damn thing to get him out.

What does that tell both friends and enemies?

To find inconvenient facts suppressed in one leading university may be regarded as censorship.

To have an entire society silenced looks like something worse, and far more sinister.
It damn sure is.

Proof that GFWs like Mary Ann Carlson are demented

and care nothing about that Constitution they swore to uphold.

Wonder if those words about 'innocent until proven guilty' mean anything to her?
Well, hell, obviously not.  At least not if you're a non-PC type.

My first thought is "Why would President Lightbringer consider a EMP attack against us a bad thing?

They attack, he surrenders, and there would be Peace!
In his warped view, anyway.
Why would President Lightbringer consider this a bad thing?  They attack, he surrenders, and there would be Peace(in his warped view)!
Suspected for years of plotting to dismantle the U.S. electric grid, American officials have confirmed that Iranian military brass have endorsed a nuclear electromagnetic pulse explosion that would attack the country's power system.

American defense experts made the discovery while translating a secret Iranian military handbook, raising new concerns about Tehran's recent nuclear talks with the administration
All the people who'd die?  Just more fodder to defend his surrender: "We cannot expend effort in fighting Iran over this when we have so many bodies to bury!"

I've got a full plate today, so go enjoy

Mr. Williamson dealing with a vegan

As an aside, ever notice all the soy 'meats' they make for vegetarians and vegans?  You'd think their wanting that would tell them something...

Now THAT is one lovely hammer

he turned out.  Among lots of others.  Damn.

Why I despise most Democrat politicians worse than others is ably demonstrated by this idiot.
People receiving food stamps have to pass drug tests or meet work requirements to receive taxpayer dollars, Sanchez reasoned, so it’s only fair that those “lucky” enough to inherit wealth should have to do something to earn it or, in this case, pay a tax.

“What work requirements are there to inherit up to $10 million tax free?” she asked a witness, rhetorically.
I'm not going to comment on this further, I want you to read this crap directly, and get the full "We want to control everything and tax everyone to death in the name of fairness" bullshit.

Brandeis University: the proper wording would be "There are not enough honorary degrees given to colored people and women we approve of."  As they've shown that you can be a black woman, and they'll crap all over you for having opinions they don't approve of.

Tam has a piece on holsters,

basically 'They get floppy, get rid of them.'   I do, however, disagree with her on hybrids, convinced of that by son wearing a Crossbreed and loving it.  I wound up with one, and I like it too.  Did have a Kydex that just wasn't as comfortable as the day wore on.  And one that's not comfortable, you don't want to wear.

Mind you, if the thing does start getting floppy, and I can't holster without holding part of it out of the way, I'll be finding a new one. 

San Francisco is having the same experience with their new minimum wage; businesses are firing people or closing.  I wonder if the idiots behind the $15/hour law care?

The EPA said that it doesn’t regulate people’s backyard barbecues and that the grant is part of the EPA's "National Student Design Competition for Sustainability Focusing on People, Prosperity and the Planet (2014)", which is a student-designed competition for sustainability.
Yeah, the bastards don't have the authority to do a lot of the shit they do; 'doesn't regulate' means 'We haven't gotten to it yet.'

This just in: the quakes are from ancient faults;

anti-fracking groups hardest hit.
"The majority of the recent earthquakes in central Oklahoma define reactivated ancient faults at shallow depths in the crust" of less than 3.7 miles (6 km), said the report for the American Geophysical Union.
Yes, they spend a lot of words saying 'it MAY be related to'; and they'll keep trying to blame fracking as long as possible.

Did a bit of digging, and in the pre-fracking era,
The magnitude 5.5 April 9, 1952, earthquake centered near El Reno affected most of Oklahoma and parts of Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Texas. Damage from the 10:30 a.m. CST earthquake was not extensive, but many people in the epicentral area were alarmed, some to near panic. Portions of chimneys fell in El Reno and Ponca City (intensity VII). Bricks loosened from a building wall and tile facing of commercial buildings bulged at Oklahoma City. Also, plate glass windows were shattered in the business district of El Reno. The total damage amounted to several thousand dollars. Aftershocks were felt on April 11, 15, and 16, July 16, and August 14; an earthquake that was felt (IV) at Holdenville and Wewoka on October 7 apparently was unrelated to the April 9th event. Homes and buildings shook and some persons were awakened (V) at El Reno from the April 16th shock, which occurred 5 minutes after midnight. Felt reports were also received from Kingfisher, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Union City.

Minor damage to a building foundation and plaster (VI) at Concho resulted from two March 17, 1953, earthquakes about an hour apart. The felt area included Calumet, Edmond, El Reno, Minco, Okarche, Peidmont, and Union City.
Which kind of makes the quakes nothing new, just a new spasm of activity, it would seem.

What? The EPA is exceeding its authority?

What took you so long, professor?
President Obama has found himself at odds with his old law school mentor over the Environmental Protection Agency.

Laurence Tribe, a liberal constitutional scholar at Harvard University, told House lawmakers that EPA carbon dioxide regulations are tearing the Constitution apart.

“EPA possesses only the authority granted to it by Congress,” Tribe told lawmakers in a hearing Tuesday. “Its gambit here raises serious questions under the separation of powers… because EPA is attempting to exercise lawmaking power that belongs to Congress and judicial power that belongs to the federal courts.”

Obama won't care, but maybe it'll get the attention of some of the followers who still have some concern for the Constitution(other than as toilet paper).

A Kurdish gunsmith is a busy man nowadays (AGW link fixed)

And he doesn't have a factory(or a fancy shop), either.

That they could have said this with a straight face...
PIE members were lobbying NCCL officials for the age of consent to be reduced and campaigning for “paedophile love”.

Their view that children were not harmed by having sex with adults appears to have been adopted by those at the top of the civil liberties group.
Why would they say this?  About what you'd think: "We didn't want to look all bigoted and old-fashioned and repressive and stuff."

Well, Al, howzabout we put a price on hypocrite politicians who've gotten rich of AGW bullshit?

Yes, the stuff of the last few days is done.  Now I can get all the outside stuff done before it starts raining later, and figure out what all I need to load, and try to catch everything else up.

No, they didn't give up on the ban,

they're just wanting to do it in a different way.

Looks like that law needs to be passed: "You cannot ban any bullet or ammunition." 
And then throw them in jail when they try anyway.

I've now got to try to catch of some of the things I couldn't do the last few days.  I'd rather not, but.

So there's this anti-rights clown named Skye Fitzgerald,

who- like many anti-rights people- is a violent and(in this case) thieving criminal.

Why are so many of them such dirtbags?

In other news, my personal mess is just about done, though I do have a comment:
Postholes... Why did it have to involve postholes?
