If we just had a law against murder…

Evidently the shooter in Washington was 14 years old and he used his father’s .40 caliber Beretta. This means…

He broke the law against anyone under 21 possessing a handgun or handgun ammunition.

He broke the law against carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.

He broke the law against carrying a weapon in a school.

He broke various laws against discharging a weapon in unauthorized areas.

He broke various laws against assault.

He broke the law against murder.

In other words, the kid broke at least a dozen laws and still managed to shoot up a gun-free-zone.

As the usual fools begin to offer up new laws in the wake of this shooting, we should ask them: Why would a kid who broke all of the laws listed above not break the new laws as well?

FEC to regulate the Revo?

They are moving to start regulating political blogs. After all, if there is one thing the government can’t have, that is free political speech.

In a surprise move late Friday, a key Democrat on the Federal Election Commission called for burdensome new rules on Internet-based campaigning, prompting the Republican chairman to warn that Democrats want to regulate online political sites and even news media like the Drudge Report.

Democratic FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel announced plans to begin the process to win regulations on Internet-based campaigns and videos, currently free from most of the FEC’s rules. “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,” she said.

The power play followed a deadlocked 3-3 vote on whether an Ohio anti-President Obama Internet campaign featuring two videos violated FEC rules when it did not report its finances or offer a disclosure on the ads. The ads were placed for free on YouTube and were not paid advertising.

Obama’s Fast and Furious cover-up is going strong

The self proclaimed “most transparent administration in history” has claimed executive privilege regarding Fast and Furious for Eric Holder’s wife.

Judicial Watch announced today that it received from the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) a “Vaughn index” detailing records about the Operation Fast and Furious scandal. The index was forced out of the Obama administration thanks to JW’s June 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and subsequent September 2012 FOIA lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice (No. 1:12-cv-01510)). A federal court had ordered the production over the objections of the Obama Justice Department.

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.

It’s been so long, here is a reminder. Holder’s Justice Department legally acquired guns from US gun dealers, transferred them to Mexican drug lords and then, when the guns were used in all manner of crimes, blamed the US gun dealers. It was all part of the administration’s plan to to demonize gun dealers, guns and gun owners in order to advance their gun control agenda.

Subway Hatchet Man in NY

B0q-rjfIAAA02XX

One man with a hatchet, two cops down, one bystander shot.

An NYPD rookie is in critical condition and another police officer is in stable condition after being attacked by a man wielding a hatchet on a Queens street Thursday, police said.

Two other officers fired on the man, stopping the attack. The assailant was pronounced dead at the scene. A 29-year-old female bystander was also struck by a bullet and underwent surgery at Jamaica Hospital, where she’s recovering, officials said.

What do we know about the hatchetman? That’s right, you guessed it. Let’s go to his Facebook page.

NYPD-hatchet-ATTACK-isis007778870439

Based on that, I think we can say that it is a case of random street violence, don’t you think? The source of the problem is a scandalous lack of universal background checks for hatchets. Time to close the hardware loophole.

Remember how Obama told you you’d save $2500 per year on health insurance?

Yeah, that isn’t going to happen. You might, however, spend $2500 more.

The results are in. Obamacare has caused your health care costs to necessarily skyrocket. Well, unless you are one of the new welfare recipients receiving a coerced subsidy from your neighbors.

The bottom line? In 2014, premiums in the non-group market grew by 24.4% compared to what they would have been without Obamacare. Of equal importance, this careful state-by-state assessment showed that premiums rose in all but 6 states (including Washington DC).

PremiumIncreasesKowalski

Well, at least more people are insured, right? Wrong. In 2008, before Obama’s election, 14.4% of the US population had no health coverage.
As of April 2014, 15.6% of the US population has no health coverage.

The real ‘war on women’ is from the left

You know what the feminist left likes to “sit back and enjoy”? A young woman crying and reporting a bodily assault that resulted in physical injury.

Watch this CNN anchor yuck it up.

Had that been the daughter of a Democrat, you can bet your ass the reaction would have been RADICALLY different.

Accidentally brush up against a liberal woman on a bus? “That’s violent, sexual assault!”

Physically attack and injure Bristol Palin? “Sit back and enjoy.”

Once again, the hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.

Joni Ernst believes she has the right to defend herself and her family

download (10)

Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst talked about her sidearm in 2012.

During an National Rifle Association event in Iowa in 2012, state Sen. Joni Ernst, now the Republican nominee for Senate in the state, said she carries a 9-millimeter gun around everywhere and believes in the right to use it even if it’s against the government if they disregard her rights.

“I have a beautiful little Smith & Wesson, 9 millimeter, and it goes with me virtually everywhere,” Ernst said during a speech at the NRA’s Iowa Firearms Coalition Second Amendment Rally in Searsboro, Iowa, as flagged by The Huffington Post on Thursday. “But I do believe in the right to carry, and I believe in the right to defend myself and my family — whether it’s from an intruder, or whether it’s from the government, should they decide that my rights are no longer important.”

She says she has the right to defend herself and her family from thugs or a government that attempts to take her rights. Pretty tame stuff, right? The moonbats at Talking Point Memo are apoplectic. Here are sample comments.

How can someone who doesn’t believe in the rule of law be a Senator in the country that encoded the idea that no one is above the law into its very DNA?

GOPer Ernst Promises to Shoot People If Gov’t Decides She Doesn’t Get to Do Whatever the Fuck She Wants

Frigid stepford bitch.

Does that make her guilty of making terroristic threats against the government?

I really don’t understand how an anti-government extremist is tied in a race for U.S. Senator. This absolutely mystifies me. Have we really gone this far down the shitter?

If she’s dumb enough to challenge the government with a little 9mm, then she’s WAAAY too dumb to serve in the Senate … even from Iowa.

Anybody point out that what she is advocating is High Treason?

she is advocating over-throwing the Government if she feels they are somehow wronging her…That would be advocating Treason.How do these people even get this far in Politics?

Obama’s got some hellfire missiles that’ll disabuse this fucking bitch of that notion.

Don’t worry, as soon as there is a Republican president, the left will all get back to talking about armed revolution again. The puppy-dog subservience to the state of these hypocrites only applies when they serve leftists.

Why does it look like a shellacking at the polls?

The New York Times explains Democrats are panicking. Obama’s popularity is on the rocks with white people; especially Southern white people. Why do these crackers not support the president?

The panicky Democratic flight away from President Obama — and from some of the party’s most important positions — is not a surprise. Mr. Obama remains highly unpopular among white voters, particularly in Southern states where candidates like Ms. Nunn, Ms. Grimes and several others are struggling to establish leads. But one of the reasons for his unpopularity is that nervous members of his own party have done a poor job of defending his policies over the nearly six years of his presidency, allowing a Republican narrative of failure to take hold.

You read that right. Obama is unpopular because members of his own party have done a poor job of defending his policies and, as a result, Republicans have been able to create a “narrative of failure”. Evidently if Obama hadn’t been betrayed by the Judas like members of his own party, white people would see his policies for the wonderful success they are.

The delusion runs deep, doesn’t it?

Hit Republican, vote Democrat

In Illinois, a vote for the Republican candidate registers a vote for the Democrat.

Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote Monday at the Schaumburg Public Library.

“I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” Moynihan said. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”

They are calling this a “calibration error”.

Cook County Board of Elections Deputy Communications Director Jim Scalzitti, told Illinois Watchdog, the machine was taken out of service and tested.

“This was a calibration error of the touch-screen on the machine,” Scalzitti said. “When Mr. Moynihan used the touch-screen, it improperly assigned his votes due to improper calibration.”

What do you want to bet that calibration errors in Illinois never, ever, under any circumstances, register a vote for a Democrat as a vote for a Republican?

Ferguson officer’s story checks out

The Washington Post reports that evidence supports the contention that police officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown fought for control of the officer’s gun and Wilson fatally shot the unarmed teenager as a result of that struggle.

Because Wilson is white and Brown was black, the case has ignited intense debate over how police interact with African American men. But more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony to a St. Louis County grand jury that largely supports Wilson’s account of events of Aug. 9, according to several people familiar with the investigation who spoke with The Washington Post.

Some of the physical evidence — including blood spatter analysis, shell casings and ballistics tests — also supports Wilson’s account of the shooting, The Post’s sources said, which casts Brown as an aggressor who threatened the officer’s life. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are prohibited from publicly discussing the case.

The grand jury is expected to complete its deliberations next month over whether Wilson broke the law in confronting Brown, and the pending decision appears to be prompting the unofficial release of information about the case and what the jurors have been told.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch late Tuesday night published Brown’s official county autopsy report, an analysis of which also suggests that the 18-year-old may not have had his hands raised when he was fatally shot, as has been the contention of protesters who have demanded Wilson’s arrest.

Meanwhile…

The U.S. Department of Justice condemned the leaks Wednesday as “irresponsible and highly troubling” and said, “There seems to be an inappropriate effort to influence public opinion about this case.”

Yeah, whatever. The Grand Jury is still deliberating yet this information is being leaked. I suspect that Eric Holder’s Justice Department sees the writing on the wall and is attempting to defuse things by gradually releasing information. It won’t matter. There will still be riots if there isn’t an indictment.

Terror in Canada

Second Muslim attack in Canada this week.

Canadian authorities late Wednesday identified the shooter in a brazen attack on the Parliament complex in Ottawa that left a soldier dead as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, 32, Fox News has confirmed.

The shooting, which left the nation’s capital on lockdown, came just two days after a terror attack in Quebec.

A government official told Fox that investigators believe Zehaf-Bibeau, who was killed at the scene, had changed his name from Joseph Michael Hall. U.S. agencies also have been advised he was believed to be a convert to Islam and was from Quebec.

Counter terrorism investigators are reviewing his social media traffic and profile, with a focus on any link to the attack on two soldiers in Quebec Monday.

The Toronto Globe and Mail said sources had told the paper Zehaf-Bibeau was recently designated a “high-risk traveler” by the Canadian government and his passport had been seized.

California requires churches to pay for abortions

California requires all insurance plans, including those provided by churches, to cover elective, surgical, dismemberment abortion.

California’s Department of Managed Health Care has ordered all insurance plans in the state to immediately begin covering elective abortion. Not Plan B. Not contraceptives. Elective surgical dismemberment abortion.

At the insistence of the American Civil Liberties Union, the DMHC concluded that a 40-year-old state law requiring health plans to cover “basic health services” had been misinterpreted all these decades. Every plan in the state was immediately ordered, effective August 22, to cover elective abortion. California had not even applied this test to its own state employee health plans (which covered only “medically necessary” abortions). But this novel reading was nevertheless quietly imposed on every plan in the state by fiat.

The news has slowly leaked out as insurers grappling with this change have begun quietly informing employers of this sudden change in the terms of their policy. This is how Kaiser Permanente broke the news to one California church that its insurance policy for its pastors and staff would now include elective abortion coverage…

Every plan in California must cover elective surgical abortion and churches must buy a California plan.

One not even go to the Hobby Lobby case to determine that this won’t stand up to judicial scrutiny. The Hobby Lobby Case applied to for-profit businesses and was based on the an interpretation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) and does not address whether such corporations are protected by the free-exercise of religion clause of the First Amendment of the Constitution.

Churches are, on the other hand, obviously protected by the free-exercise of religion clause. This monstrosity will be overturned.

Goats are shrinking

Climate change is causing goats to shrink.

Goats are shrinking as a result of climate change, researchers have claimed.

They say Alpine goats now weigh about 25 per cent less than animals of the same age in the 1980s.

Researchers say it is a stark indication of how quickly climate change can affect animals.

They appear to be shrinking in size as they react to changes in climate, according to new research from Durham University.

Evidently climate change is also causing goats to become more adorable.

President pushes race based voting

Remember this from 2006?

President George Bush is turning to white radio listeners to plead for midterm votes, a targeted approach to drum up Republican support at a time when many candidates don’t want him around in person.

Caucasian turnout will be vital to Republicans’ hopes in states such as Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana and North Carolina that will help determine control of the Senate. And Bush remains beloved among white voters even if Republican candidates in those races are running away from him amid the president’s low overall approval ratings.

“This isn’t about my feelings being hurt,” Bush told Sean Hannity in one of seven nationally syndicated interviews he’s conducted the past week. “These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me. I tell them, I said, ‘You do what you need to do to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn out.’ ”

Bush told a predominantly white audience in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, on Sunday that the election “will be a done deal if you vote” and get friends and family to vote as well.

Of course you don’t remember it. Nothing like that ever happened. This, however, is happening right now.

Anti-gun hypocrite arrested with a gun

Drunk, anti-gun agitator arrested in Furguson for carrying a weapon.

Missouri state Senator Jamilah Nasheed, a Democrat who has sponsored several “anti-gun” bills in her state, was arrested Monday night during a protest outside of the Ferguson Police Department. However, it’s what police officers found on her that is raising eyebrows.

Nasheed was carrying a loaded 9mm handgun and extra rounds of ammunition, according to Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson. She also refused to take a breathalyzer test after officers determined she “smelled strongly of intoxicants,” sources told KMOV-TV.

Nasheed claimed on Tuesday that she was not intoxicated at the time of her arrest and emphasized that she is a legal concealed carry permit holder.

Insurance companies are worried about Obamacare subsidies…

They are concerned enough that the subsidies may end that they are building in an escape clause.

Insurance companies bought into Obamacare exchanges with the promise that federal premium subsidies would convince more people to sign up, but they appear to be getting worried about pending lawsuits that could end the subsidies in federal exchanges.

According to insurance news service Inside Health Policy, insurance companies offering plans on HealthCare.gov this year had a new clause inserted into their contracts with Obamacare administrator the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services that allows them to cancel plans if federal premium subsidies are eliminated.

Forbes’ contributor and Obamacare subsidy expert Michael Cannon, who highlighted the change, argues that this could spark Supreme Court review of the legality of premium subsidies in federal exchanges.

The cracks in this crapulent edifice continue to widen.

Monica Lewinsky: Patient Zero

HILLLEWIN

She says she was the first person to be destroyed by the Internet.

“I was Patient Zero,” said Lewinsky, now 41, to an auditorium full of 1,000-plus high-achieving millennials at Forbes’ inaugural 30 Under 30 summit in Philadelphia. “The first person to have their reputation completely destroyed worldwide via the Internet.”

“There was no Facebook, Twitter or Instagram back then,” she said. “But there were gossip, news and entertainment websites replete with comment sections and emails which could be forwarded. Of course, it was all done on the excruciatingly slow dial up. Yet around the world this story went. A viral phenomenon that, you could argue, was the first moment of truly ‘social media’.”

She’s right, she was Patient Zero. She was the first person destroyed by the Internet but for me she was Patient Zero in another way. The way she was treated by the left in general and feminists in particular, made me truly understand, for the first time, the depths of hypocrisy they will plumb in their quest for power.

In 1991 Anita Hill made unsubstantiated sexual harassment allegations against Clarence Thomas during his SCOTUS confirmation hearings. She claimed he asked her out on dates and that he discussed topics of a crude sexual nature in the workplace. Her testimony caused the feminist left to go berserk coast-to-coast.

They were appalled that a boss, any boss, would ask a subordinate for a date. They told us that where there is a disparity of power, there can never be consensual flirting, sexual innuendo and certainly there cannot be sexual relationships. They were incensed that topics of a sexual nature would be discussed in the workplace. They demanded that all romantic and sexual behavior be scrubbed from all places of business. They insisted that there could never be consensual sex between two people when there exists an imbalance of power. Whenever a male boss engages in sexual activity with a female subordinate, we were told, it is harassment at best and assault at worst.

Over and over and over feminists told men, “you just don’t get it”. It was THE catch phrase for the episode. We don’t understand the disparity of power. We don’t understand the ways in which powerful men can sexually intimidate women.

Then came the Clinton and Lewinsky affair and, with it, a radical make-over of the feminist position. Now it was “just about sex” and nobody’s business but that of Bill and Monica. Feminists no longer worried about the disparity of power between the most powerful man in the world and a 22 year old, unpaid intern.

Not only did the left and feminists lose their former intense opposition to workplace sexual behavior, they actually began ‘slut shaming’ Lewinsky. They implied she was a trollop. They claimed she was stupid and/or unbalanced. The went to infinite lengths to protect Clinton including a full court assault on a young woman who was barely an adult and was seduced by a powerful man with a reputation for sexual aggressiveness.

The media tore her up. The Clinton destruction machine left her twisting in the wind. To Hillary – the champion of women everywhere – Lewinsky’s name is mud. Lewinsky was a naive 22 year old intern who foolishly fell for the flirtations of a charismatic older man. She believed he was falling for her and, when the affair was revealed, she was destroyed. They destroyed her. They devastated her and they never, ever said they were sorry. Feminists had no sympathy for Lewinsky. They offered no moral support. They refused to grant her status as victim as they had done so willingly for the older, more educated and more sophisticated Anita Hill. Lewinsky was on her own.

This is why Lewinsky was Patient Zero. It was with her than I learned that the left has no permanent values. They have no intellectual foundations. They have no fundamental honesty. All they have is an agenda; an agenda to gain and hold power.

Power politics meant destroying Clarence Thomas and that meant taking the position that all workplace romantic and sexual behavior is harassment or even assault. Power politics meant protecting Clinton and that meant that the married president of the United States ejaculating on the dress of a 22 year old, unpaid volunteer in the Oval Office, during business hours constitutes harmless fun.

Comparing the reaction of the American left to Anita Hill and Monica Lewinsky showed me – and the world – that the left has no permanent values, has no foundational principles, has no intellectual honesty. The left exists wholly to accumulate power and will say and do anything to that end. Anything.

Belarusian sausage: Now toilet paper free!

If you prefer your sausage without added toilet paper, Belarusian sausage is for you.

Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko has proudly claimed his country’s sausages are better than neighbor Russia’s because they do not contain “toilet paper,” reports Radio Free Europe.

Speaking to Russian reporters, he said Belarus had not lowered its food standards.

“Belarusian (food) is of substantially higher in quality. There is no toilet paper in the salami and never was,” he said.

He added that “such facts have been discovered at Russian enterprises — toilet paper, soy, all kinds of additives.”

Abortion Barbie courts dildo voters

In an email to dildo enthusiasts, Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis warns that her opponent is not a strong supporter of the dildo industry.

“In 2008, Abbott chose to defend the state’s ban on the sale of sex toys, a case that emerged from the fallout of Lawrence v. Texas,” writes the Observer’s Christopher Hooks. ”Over the years, Abbott has deployed novel legal arguments against gay marriage. But this wasn’t a case about gay marriage, a subject that still animates sincere moral disagreements. This was a case about every American’s god-given right to buy dildos.”
