Awright, get to work

That data won't review itself

Never forget, it's about control;

guns, cars, words, it's always about control.
De Leon’s SB 350 is ultimately a gasoline-rationing act. The bill gives the California Air Resources Board free rein to enact a mandatory 50 percent gasoline and diesel fuel restriction (8 billion gallons annually) by the year 2030.

To meet the mandate, the state air resources board will be able to ration gas, place mobility restrictions on state residents, place surcharges on family mini-vans, trucks and SUVs, and even monitor individuals’ fuel consumption records.
The California Air Resources Board, an unelected group of bureaucrats, will be given full authority to meet the restriction mandate in any way its members see fit with no oversight permitted by our elected representatives.
Yeah, that'll work.  Californicated thinks it's losing people now(except for illegal aliens)?  Watch how many people evacuate if they pass this crap.

By the way, notice the name of the control freak who's pushing this?  Yes, that's the same control freak with his "I have no idea what I'm talking about but I'll say it anyway" press conference that gave us 'ghost guns'.  Note this:
(In his official capacity, de León is chauffeured in a Chevrolet Suburban. For personal use, he leases a Chevrolet Impala and said he aspires to a hybrid.)
Got that?  Not 'bought one', not 'is buying one', he ASPIRES to a hybrid.  Lying bastard.

If this is correct, I wonder who in the Pentagon

is getting paid off, and how?

Come on, how can even the hoplophobes get all upset about this?  All-natural ingredients!  It's green!

To the people who accused me of cherry-picking to find problems

with the wonderful Brit National Health Service: who has to cherry-pick in such a ripe field of crap?
More than 5,000 cancer patients will be denied life-extending drugs under plans which charities say are a “dreadful” step backwards for the NHS. 

Health officials have just announced sweeping restrictions on treatment, which will mean patients with breast, bowel, skin and pancreatic cancer will no longer be able to receive drugs funded by the NHS.
Short version: .gov declares "Nobody should be denied cancer drugs!"
.gov runs out of other peoples' money.
.gov declares "We can't pay for this anymore."
And when the .gov controls who gets what, guess what?

One more "I'm beat" for the evening,

and I haven't even done the knee exercises yet.  New subject matter below, I suggest close examination.

Hillary Clinton announced "People should obey the law!" In between cover stories

and lies about her own most recent(that we know of) lawbreaking...  Which leads me to this:
Insty has been pointing out the dangers in average people deciding "Screw this.  The government, the politicians, the agencies, THEY don't obey the law, so why should I?"  Which brings me to this on ATF and Gunwalker:
For example, “Gunwalker Bill” Newell, one of the principal architects of the scheme, was allowed to start his post-ATF civilian job and still draw his six-figure government salary and lavish benefits for about a year.

Who says crime doesn’t pay? Not Gunwalker Bill.
US Attorney Dennis K. Burke, who approved and helped organize the “increase killings to influence policy” gambit, returned to a staff job at one of the anti-gun non-profits to which he’d always been loyal. The AZ State Bar cracked down as hard on him as bar associations ever do: fining him $1,200 for his role enabling a thousand plus murders, about a buck each, not counting “incurred but not reported” murders, which might double the number (and halve what it’s cost Burke, per-decapitated-capita). ATF Acting Director Kenneth Melson and US Attorney turned ATF Director Byron Todd Jones, both of whom were involved in Gunwalker planning and oversight, retired unscathed by their roles in the same heinous conspiracy. Another US Attorney  read on to and supportive of the program, Loretta Lynch, is now Attorney General. It’s as if the official motto of Operation Gunwalker was “Mess Up and Move Up.”
Helping smuggle guns to the drug cartels.  Violating a national border.  Lying under oath.  Submitting false documents.  And their attempt to help cover-up their wrongdoings?  Screw the little people, of course.
Unable to get at their cartel-leader targets (because the cartel personnel who were upstream from the straw purchasers ATF chose as entry points were all already being run as paid confidential informants by the FBI, or (more probably) were double agents taking FBI money to betray the FBI effort to their cartel bosses), the ATF targeted the only people they could, the straw buyers and their own cooperating witnesses. CW Ian Garland was thrown under the bus and sentenced to ten years in jail for selling guns Newell, Voth and McAllister directed him to sell to cartel buyers. ATF “expert” witnesses misrepresented the semi-auto weapons Garland sold as full-auto weapons, leading to a 10-year-sentence, but also to its overturn, and Garland’s release, on appeal. Garland’s out now (and cooperating, to the terror of the ATF, with the Mexican government in a probe of how guns ATF directed him to sell were used to murder Mexican law enforcement and court officers), but he not only was imprisoned (and remains convicted), but also they did all they could, as this period appeal makes clear, to make the process a punishment of its own .
Hey, they screw their own AGENTS for not being sufficiently quiet about ethical and legal shortcomings, you think it'll bother them to screw an informant?  Or some plain old citizen doing what they were told to by ATF?

And let's not forget, the EffingBI, and DEA, and other agencies were found to be involved in this and other gun-smuggling operations(that never got much attention in the media; gee, I wonder why...).  Every damned one of which made sure their people paid no price for what they did.

Any surprise more and more people are saying "You're telling me to obey the law?  Screw you; you start obeying it first" ?

The CSGV and Mommies Want and other groups like posting

pictures of old guys- often overweight- with a gun and making comments like "This fat old fool thinks he could fight the Army!" and such.  You can ask(assuming they haven't already blocked you for questioning the Preferred Narrative, or asking uncomfortable questions) things like "Know who he is?  Know his background?  For all you know he COULD make one hell of a stand."  Instead, I think- when possible- I'll just respond with a picture of Mr. Whittemores' tombstone.

I was aware of his history, but I'd not seen the stone until yesterday.  I think it makes the point nicely.

"You need a factory to make guns, you wingnut,

and we can watch factories!"
Yeah.  Sure.

In Japan, mind you, a place the CSGV and Bradys genuflect to since they treat guns as an infection to be kept away from the peasants.

Ben Brucato, of Amherst College, deserves all the fame

we can give him, so he's known as the nasty little bastard he is.

Brucato responded to an incident in Troy, New York, in which a carjacker opened fire and severely wounded two police officers before being shot and killed himself. The Amherst researcher started publicizing false information about the shooting, complained that officers who rushed to the scene had run stop signs, and insinuated that a black mayoral candidate who supported the white officers had performed oral sex on them.
Brucato responded by telling Kownack he wished the city was “rid of your sorry ass.” He continued, saying he’d like to see her “buried beneath” buildings in the city, adding “When we erect the guillotines, I’ll make sure we grab you first.”

You'll note that, when it was pointed out just what a nasty asshole he was showing himself to be, he tried to get various sites to not publish about this.  Because
“it would set an unacceptable precedent that [publication] is willing to work with those who want to silence their critics rather than engage them in debate.”
Oh, Hell no, Brucato, we WANT you spouting this crap.  We WANT you showing just what a crap pile you are.

By the way, ever hear of the Streisand Effect?

Thanks to Miguel for finding this

A: Well, he's right; a lot of them ARE traitors

B: Considering what the legal profession too-often is, of course they want to punish him; he spoke uncomfortable truths, and they really don't like that.

"I'll take the Fifth!"  Fine; you should have to sit there, under oath, and do it to every question they ask.  While the evidence is gone over. 

And note that Cummings, who found nothing wrong with anything ATF did in the various gunrunning schemes, still wants to protect a fellow Democrat no matter what.

So NOAA doesn't just screw with data to give the preferred outcome:
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration employees dumped untreated bilge water from a ship’s bilge into the ocean roughly every six days throughout 2013, violating environmental laws, federal regulations and the agency’s own policies, the Department of Commerce Office of Inspector General found. They also spilled fuel in a harbor.
The NOAA engineers claimed they’re exempt from the law as operators of a “public vessel,” an assertion the IG rejected
Anytime a .gov employee says 'I'm exempt from that law, because public employee/public vessel/whatever!', they should be immediately fired.  And prosecuted.  And the agency who had a hand in them thinking this should have their budget cut.  Maybe 25% as a start.

Wonder if the people always screaming about Republicans and crooked businessmen

will scream as loudly- if at all- about this?
But on Tuesday, Secretary Julián Castro's housing agency proposed modifying the required certification in a way that would apply only to HUD-registered lenders. The lenders' parent companies wouldn't be on the hook, thus seemingly enabling Citi and JPMorgan's HUD-registered units to continue certifying that they haven't pleaded guilty to federal antitrust charges.

Castro's agency in May had initially proposed deleting the requirement altogether. The agency slightly retreated following criticism from three powerful Democratic lawmakers: Rep. Maxine Waters of California and Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who had argued that the housing agency was trying to "make it easier for lenders who have engaged in illegal behavior" to continue participating in the federal mortgage insurance program.

Yeah, the people pushing this 'Kill white people, and especially kill cops' and

"The law doesn't matter for some people" crap don't really think about this:
Burglars would be hung from lampposts, and shoplifters would be beaten and tossed into the gutter if there were no police, as in fact happens in countries where there isn’t a reliable justice system and a civil-society culture that restrains vigilantism. Reminder to the criminal class: Ultimately, we’re not stuck in this country with you. You’re stuck in this country with us.
The assholes really don't want to have to deal with what happens when the official law can't/won't act, so private citizens have to. 

Side effects: they'd be bad.  We really don't want them.  Which is why we want the idiots in DC and state capitals to get it through their skulls "You'd better knock this shit off, and start seeing the law enforced fairly and evenly FOR ALL; you think you're going to escape what happens if you don't?  Fat chance."

This crap is not going to end well

Yet another officer has been killed this week in what is being described as having been planned by multiple parties to kill an Abilene police officer in his home.  The slain officer has been identified as Don Allen by the chief of police.  According to a local news source, Big Country Homepage, a search warrant for cell tower information included the following:
This ruling isn’t official, but a direct quote from the documents reads, “communication occurred between multiple parties to plan and carry out the murder. [The officer filing the warrant] believes cell towers within the ten mile radius will have captured transaction between the suspects who were involved in this murder.”
If correct, you're talking about conspiracy, planning murder.  Three guesses about political affiliations/probable racial group.

Yes, I know, 'That's racist!'  No,  it's not.  Especially considering this.  And this.  And this.
And, from the ranks of the Only Black Lives Matter clowns, I present this:

Yeah, this is going to end well. 

Hey, assholes, know what you've done?  In no particular order,
You've caused every cop out there to consider everyone of darker hue a possible(probable?) threat on a level they never did before.
You've cause a bunch of people to consider the cops a bigger threat than the people far more likely to kill them(Chicago, anyone?)
You've helped the grievance-mongers and RWPPs to- well, stop there, helping those assholes period is an offense worthy of something terrible.
You've helped every "We have to support the cops no matter what!" moron.
And, the cherry on the damned sundae, you've helped make sure there's going to be a bunch of bodies involved.

Well done, you idiots.

There's a part I need

from either Brownell's or Midway.  Costs about the same at both.  Nothing else I actually need(want is a different matter) right now.

Shipping: one is only three times the cost of the part, the other is four times.

I hate it when this happens.

Of course it'll threaten the grid;

that's their idea, it's what they want.
Stakeholders and government officials are unsure about whether the Obama administration’s legacy climate rule will threaten the electric grid, according to the ISO/RTO Council, whose members include independent systems operators and regional transmission organizations.
Go read about the 'safety valve'.  And ponder all the ways it could be manipulated by the idiots in charge of all this.

And, sooner or later, this crap is going to blow up bigtime;

and the idiots who helped pump it up are going to insist they had nothing to do with it.  Kind of like Sgt. Schultz knowing Nothing!
So, too, the mainstream media depicted the black murderer of eight white people at a Connecticut beer warehouse in 2010 as a man who had been angered by white racism, not as the white-hater he was. Under the headline "Troubles Preceded Connecticut Workplace Killing," a New York Times article reported: "He might also have had cause to be angry: He had complained to his girlfriend of being racially harassed at work, the woman's mother said, and lamented that his grievances had gone unaddressed."
And a Washington Post headline read: "Beer warehouse shooter long complained of racism."
The fact was that the man was fired for stealing beer from his workplace, and there was a video of him doing so.
...One of the best examples of this lie is the left's use of the word "Ferguson" as an example of white police killing innocent young black men. The extensive investigation into what actually happened in Ferguson (by both local authorities and the U.S. Department of Justice led by then-Attorney General Eric Holder) revealed no such thing. Yet even Obama continues to use the term "Ferguson" as an exemplar of police racism.

Those lies in turn produce the anger-inducing victimhood that pervades too much of black life. Just this past weekend at the Minneapolis State Fair, a "Black Lives Matter" group chanted, "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon."
Some blacks -- as in Houston this past weekend and in Louisiana two weeks earlier when a black man murdered another white policeman -- are taking this message literally and randomly murdering police officers. And some other blacks just want to kill whites, whether or not they are police. Such is the power of victimhood and lies.

And it gives power to racist assholes like Calypso Louie.  Who's openly calling for killing people for their skin color.  Again.

What? ATF brass and lawyers were less than ethical?

Lied to a court?

C'mon, are ANY of you actually surprised?

Something to keep in mind about the 'assault weapon' crap

Assault weapons—just like armor-piercing bullets, machine guns, and plastic firearms—are a new topic. The weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the public’s confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons—anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun—can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons. In addition, few people can envision a practical use for these weapons.
Josh Sugarmann
Put plainly: "Lots of people don't know the difference, so let's keep them confused!  Make them think what we call 'assault weapons' are machine guns, and people are running around with them!  That'll get us votes for bans."

As Mr. Huffman says, It was this “study” by Sugarmann that was the seed for the “assault weapon” ban of 1994–all based on the deliberate confusion of the public. Mr. Sugarmann knows the truth and when the ’94 ban was about to sunset in 2004, while other anti-gun bigots were screaming about “blood will flow in the streets”, Sugarmann quietly told people that “not much will change” with the expiration of the ban. He successfully created the ban out of his insight on the ignorance and gullibility of the people and then moved on when he knew the deception could no longer be sustained.–Joe]

Another of the caring people who think gun owners are awful

Charley S., you're a miserable little shit.

Ah, when the progzis take another bite of their own...

There was an awards show for music videos the other night, it seems.  And one celebritute got pissed at another and was rather loud about it.  And Salon, apparently thinking its chops as a good leftist "We're one of the sensitive ones!" site would protect it, used what's apparently ANOTHER word that now has racist meaning, and is now running and hiding because the other leftists crapped their keyboards in outrage.

It appears, when they're not home-making machine guns and shotgun revolvers, the Brazilians will modify anything else at hand.

An opinion on the tactical reload
He doesn't like it.

But c’mon, people. We’re dealing with reality here. Where are the Kleenex boxes, the alarm clocks, the bottles of ibuprofen, the glasses of water, the heaps of books, the midnight snack foods? Where are the bedside pistol or shotgun, the dog’s blankie and toys, the fuzzy slippers, and the laid-out clothes for tomorrow?

Yeah. In the picture, they’re in the drawers or in the absolutely gigantic closet that’s hidden behind the elegant and pricy shoji screen. Or they’ve been moved to some other room that’s heaped floor-to-ceiling with junk. In reality? Who has time to go hiding all their “necessaries”?

Bayou Renaissance Man on some of the problems with/about LE; read it.  Here's a taste:
Answer me this:  how are we supposed to have any respect at all for law enforcement officers (or their agencies) who engage in these shenanigans?
I suspect this is a major part of the problem with certain elements of society who resent, distrust and fear law enforcement.  Some are just plain criminal, and deserve no consideration.  Others . . . no, others have a real problem.  They've been treated so badly, for so long, that they've lost sight of the fact that the law is there for a reason.  They see it - and those who enforce it - as more of a burden, more of a threat, than a blessing to society.  In time, they come to see peace officers as active enemies . . . and they respond accordingly.

'Higher' Education...

Is not supposed to mean crap like this.

Something most of the left REALLY doesn't want to talk about,

let alone deal with: 
But here’s where things get really murky for the left:

If, as the left is forever assuring us, America is a land of incorrigible “white supremacy” and “racism”—if, in other words, “racism” is “institutional,” “systemic,” “structural;” if, as the left insists, “racism” is the greatest of all evils; and if, as the left further maintains, whites are never eligible to judge whether blacks who cry “racism” are sincere or not, then it would seem that one conclusion follows:

Vester Flanagan, who claims to have been the victim of racial oppression, acted justifiably in gunning down three white people who, by virtue of being white, belonged to the oppressor class
Yep.  Yeah, I know the real squirrels will say it, but the 'out in the spotlight' Democrats and socialists?  They do NOT want to deal with this consequence of their bullshit.

Much like, if it can be shown that the murderer who killed that Texas deputy was following the line of that radio show, a lot of the media will NOT want to deal with that; if they have to, they'll deflect all they can.


Eventually I’d be able to by dynamite at WalMart; as God intended.”

No, he's not kidding.  Go see why.
