Blatantly Reposted from Ed Rasimus...

Because I could not say it better


We've all seen the cowboy movies with the outnumbered, but staunchly courageous sheriff standing up to the lynch mob. Justice will be served by a trial before a jury of peers in a court of law therefore we don't respond to mob justice. Those days of lynch mobs are gone, relegated to our distant and more violent past...except maybe in Kalifornia:No Hanging? We're Gonna Break Some Windows!

There was going to be a riot regardless of the verdict. Guilt of murder, guilty of manslaughter, not-guilty...it wouldn't make a difference in the activity on the street. A black man got shot by a white man. The black man had been involved in activities which resulted in a police intervention. The black man resisted the law enforcement officer at least to the extent that he was going to get Tazed.

The white policeman, however, was apparently not adequately trained for his position. He drew his pistol rather than his Taser and without discerning the difference in size, weight, configuration, position on his belt, etc he employed the pistol, killing the alleged criminal. Apparently basics like sight acquistion were not ingrained either or he might have noted the difference in equipment visually if not by feel.

The trial, with a change of venue, examined the evidence. It is unlikely that the rioters did the same. The judge explained the elements of the law which apply to murder in the first degree. There is no way that there could have been pre-meditation or malicious intent. There was manifest incompetence. The verdict reflected that conclusion.

So, quite predictably the culture of victimization rampant in the minority neighborhoods of America responded by complaining to the state. They did so by taking to the streets and victimizing innocent property owners who are totally unrelated to the events in question.

How's your justice thing working out?

And, along the way there is no sheriff in Alameda Country or Oakland California who was prepared to stand up to the crowd until after the damage was done. Who is surprised by this?

US v. AZ (2)

Alleged AG Eric Holder has field against the Arizona immigration law that seeks to enforce existing US immigration law, by saying that the commerce clause of the Constiution somehow protects the illegal movement of illegal felons across alleged borders, or some such twaddle.

I knew it was bad business the moment that the Odd Man-Child chose the man who granted Marc Rich pardon and defended terrosrists.

He won’t prosecute a blatant case of race-based voter intimidation in Philadelphia, but he’ll search high and low for non-existent racial profiling immigration incidents in Arizona.

Note: There is something so fundamentally wrong with this administration that it cannot be described under the normal courzse of business.

It is not incomeptence or inexperience. It is deliberate. And that raises questions that very few people have the guts to ask.

A Different Independence Day

Why does one end his own life? I have fond memories of playing guitar with Bill Ed, leading a retreat or two, and I always thought of him as a good friend. My prayers and sympathies to his family, parents, and friends. This loss is tragic.

RIP old friend.

US v. AZ

The Feral Gummint of the US sued Arizona today for passing a state law requiring enfocement of the feral laws on immigration. You know, the ones Barack, Nancy, Harry, and the rest of that lot of reprobates and fools refuse to enforce.

Has there ever been a clearer demonstration that the Feral Gummint of the US is at war with its citizenry?

I dare you to research the AZ border issue and see what is happening down there.

You know what to do in November.

Qoute of the Year

In sum total, what you people did was drive someplace where there wasn't a problem, complain about something you don't fully understand, get in the way of people who may actually be performing a function, and then do nothing, en masse, except hope that someone else notices your little snit and makes it all better.My god, if there's a more perfect metaphor for the modern progressive movement, I've never seen it. -- Tam, And joining hands, they made a metaphor...

McDonald v. Chicago Summarized

Here are the basics of the decision:

The right to keep and bear arms (RKBA) is recognized as a "fundamental right," which places it on par with freedom of speech and freedom of religion, among others. This categorization warrants "strict scrutiny" in appurtenant cases.

Strict scrutiny won't necessarily void gun registration schemes, but it will void outright bans, discretionary licensing requirements (see Scalia's discussion of "arbitrary and capricious" licensing requirements in Heller), and prohibitive taxes or licensing fees.

It should also void the Lautenberg Amendment, which extend the class of prohibited persons to those convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence crimes.

The court's recognition of the Second Amendment as protecting the RKBA especially as it relates to the right of self defense should also negate the "sporting purposes" requirement in 18 U.S.C. Sec. 922.2.

McDonald did NOT strike down Chicago's handgun ban. Rather, it remanded the case to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, which had previously upheld the trial court's dismissal of the case.

It's quite possible that Chicago will revise the law to bring it into what it feels is compliance with the constitution, but this fight isn't over by a long shot.

Aside from the Chicago law, others are now ripe for being challenged, including the draconian and arbitrary pistol ownership licensing schemes in places like NYC, CA, and NJ. Additionally, the assault weapons bans in NY, NJ and CA are in jeopardy.

With the Second Amendment now recognized as protecting a fundamental right, discretionary carry license laws such as those in NY, NJ, MD, and CA may also eventually be replaced with shall-issue laws.

As if on Cue....

"Mayor" Daley of Chicago declares his insistence to put new gun laws in place that will make it difficult to buy guns in Chicago - even after the Supremes affirmed the right to do so against all political subdivisions. Note that he does not want to "keep guns out of the hands of felons" or "improve public safety by eliminating accidental shootings" or "reduce the dangers to children posed by guns in the home" - but he vows to make it difficult for people to buy guns - in other words, to exercise their fundamental civil rights.

He then resorts to the old Democrat myth of the "rule of law".

Hey, Dick - if you cared about the rule of law, you would be abiding by the letter and spirit of the Supreme Court decision, see?


Just Wondering

Why we could subdue an entire continent with Winchester '73s and the like, but can't even subdue Afghanistan with autoimatic M16s and other assorted military weapons?

The level of tribal warfare is about the same...

Byrd Dead (D'ed-o)

The Deomcrat's Merry Klansman, Robert Byrd passed today.

Like Ted Kennedy's passing, this is truly a terrible tragedy.

They both died in their sleep like honest men, instead of at the hands of an angry mob.


The Supreme Court held Monday that the Constitution's Second Amendment restrains government's ability to significantly limit "the right to keep and bear arms," advancing a recent trend by the John Roberts-led bench to embrace gun rights.

By a narrow, 5-4 vote, the justices also signaled, however, that some limitations on the right could survive legal challenges.

Writing for the court in a case involving restrictive laws in Chicago and one of its suburbs, Justice Samuel Alito said that the Second Amendment right "applies equally to the federal government and the states."

The court was split along familiar ideological lines, with five conservative-moderate justices in favor of gun rights and four liberals opposed. Chief Justice Roberts voted with the majority.
Two years ago, the court declared that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess guns, at least for purposes of self-defense in the home.

That ruling applied only to federal laws. It struck down a ban on handguns and a trigger lock requirement for other guns in the District of Columbia, a federal city with a unique legal standing. At the same time, the court was careful not to cast doubt on other regulations of firearms here.
Gun rights proponents almost immediately filed a federal lawsuit challenging gun control laws in Chicago and its suburb of Oak Park, Ill, where handguns have been banned for nearly 30 years. The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence says those laws appear to be the last two remaining outright bans.

Lower federal courts upheld the two laws, noting that judges on those benches were bound by Supreme Court precedent and that it would be up to the high court justices to ultimately rule on the true reach of the Second Amendment.

The Supreme Court already has said that most of the guarantees in the Bill of Rights serve as a check on state and local, as well as federal, laws.

Monday's decision did not explicitly strike down the Chicago area laws, ordering a federal appeals court to reconsider its ruling. But it left little doubt that they would eventually fall.

Still, Alito noted that the declaration that the Second Amendment is fully binding on states and cities "limits (but by no means eliminates) their ability to devise solutions to social problems that suit local needs and values."

The All Around Perfect Rifle


Its powerful. Enough. Good for everything except the largest game. If you don't need lots of power, get it in a pistol caliber.

Its accurate. Enough. Good to 300 yards (don't let anyone fool you on this). Need more range? Get a battle rifle. Where are the majority of shots taken? Yeah. Pistol calibers still apply.

The cyclic rate approaches a semi-auto rifle. If you're good. And smooth.

It's light.

It's comfy.

It's cheap.

It's friendly. Thanks to years of westerns, it will be the last weapon ever banned. Probably.

It's gorgeous.

It was good enough for thousands of settlers in the west - it subdued an entire continent.

The Battle for Control of the Military

The commander-in-chief has summoned General Stanley McChrystal to the White House for a spanking. The Genreal made some remarks in an interview in Rolling Stone magazine - basically calling ignoratnt fools, well, ignorant fools.

Obama has demanded to see McChrystal in person. He will probably fire the General rather than actually wise up to his failed international/foreign policy/military ideas. Why learn? Or win? Just fire the undesirable.

Shouldn't the proper term be whiny-little-bastard-in-chief?

We are proceeding at an ever-increasing pace to third world junta status.

Liberals say...

That I am wrong in my disdain of FDR, because he "saved us from the depression".

BS. Cow Cookies. Horse Hockey. Pure, Grade-A Manure.

FDR was too busy not letting a "serious crisis go to waste". Check it out: Thomas Sowell shows us one page that can change minds.

FDR - America's second totalitarian communist.

Who was first? Wilson.

Borders, Language, Culture

Now the Feral Government confirms that they will file suit against Arizona to prevent them from enforcing existing Federal law.

Figures. He will not represent you. He will not protect you. He will not hesitate to sacrifice you and yours to his leftist gods. Just ask Louisiana.

The law of averages would imply that, if he were a well-meaning benign leftist just trying to help everybody out, that he owould occasionally get something right - something that would actually benefit some of us. When every consequence is bad, and every act worsens the situation, and every problem or delay is met with a demand to "speed up and do it more!" it can only come from nefarious intent.

This odd man-child is unutterably evil.

Finally, Someone Speaks...

By Joe Kovacs© 2010 WorldNetDaily

The former Honolulu elections clerk who maintains President Obama was
not born in Hawaii and has no birth certificate from any hospital in the Aloha State is promoting a simple way to resolve the uproar over eligibility, at least for the future.

Tim Adams, 45, senior elections clerk for the city and county of Honolulu in the 2008 campaign, says all candidates for all offices should be required to prove their identity and eligibility before they can even run.

Well, duuuh...

"The easiest way would be to pass legislation saying everyone has to verify their identity when they're running for office," Adams told WND in an exclusive interview last week. "I do think requiring everyone to certify their identity would probably solve the entire controversy."

You don't say...

Adams stresses the requirement should be for all political contests, from the presidency down to local races, to make sure officeholder-wannabes are who they say they are, and live in the proper district, for instance.

Adams, a Hillary Clinton supporter who now teaches English at Western Kentucky University while he works on his master's degree, burst onto the scene last week in a WND story in which he asserted that Obama was definitely not born in Hawaii as the White House claims and that a long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Obama does not even exist there.
Tim Adams, the former senior elections clerk for Honolulu, says President Obama was "definitely" not born in Hawaii, and a long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Obama does not exist in the state.

"There is no birth certificate," he said. "It's like an open secret. There isn't one. Everyone in the government there knows this."

"I had direct access to the Social Security database, the national crime computer, state driver's license information, international passport information, basically just about anything you can imagine to get someone's identity," Adams explained. "I could look up what bank your home mortgage was in. I was informed by my boss that we did not have a birth record [for Obama]."
He stressed, "In my professional opinion, [Obama] definitely was not born in Hawaii. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that he was not born in Hawaii because there is no legal record of him being born there. If someone called and asked about it, I could not tell them that person was born in the state."

At the request of his university, Adams is now declining any further comment on the matter.

More on SC Idiocracy

David Axelrod is saying that Greene was not a "legitimate" candidate and called his victory "a mysterious deal."

We wonder how in the world a young black man with unknown origins, funny money, no experience, no qualifications, and weird associates can mysteriously appear and win an election?

Excellent rehearsal last night - vocals are coming along. Occasional glimpses of superb tight musicianship. This may turn out to be all right...

From New Paltz:

Well said, sir.

Codrea - Count Me in the Minority

Americans Should be Allowed to Have Guns, Say Large Majorities [More]

Sorry, but I don't recognize anyone with authority to "allow" that. And unalienable rights aren't subject to majority rule. As I said here, because I believe it, "At some point we must acknowledge that, democracy notwithstanding, two cannot lawfully withhold rights from one, NOR MAY THEIR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES."

This may seem like nitpicking over grammar, but establishing the proper mindset is crucial.

Idiocrats in SC

The Democratic primary election in South Cariolina has turned absurd.

The winner (60% of the vote) is an unemployed gentleman (bum) whose only work history appears to be that he was involuntarily separated from service in the US Army (Other than Honorable? BCD?). Currently he is facing felony charges for showing obscene photos to a college student.

He faced a judge who actually campaigned, spending more than $200,000 seeking the nomination. Our victor spent nothing, made no appearances, has no campaign, filed no reports and so far has demonstrated no knowledge of the issues or the role of a US Senator.

Now the Democratic Party is embarrassed. Oh, really? Finally.

Laughably, the Democrat Rep. Jim Clyburn sees this as a Republican dirty trick. David Axelrod, doesn't think this was fair.

The only rational response is stunned laughter.

10A Center

Eight weeks into the oil spill disaster in the Gulf of the Mexico, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has told the National Guard that there's no time left to wait for BP, so they're taking matters into their own hands.

But what took him so long?

Jack Nicklaus - June 9, 1973

"I found out...that Jack Nicklaus, the great golfer, was watching the Belmont Stakes at home.

He ended up on all fours on his den floor, pounding on the floor, as this horse turned for home. Friends looking on were perplexed or aghast, or both.

He said, 'Idon't know anything about horse racing, but for some reason I was poiunding on the floor and tears were coming down.' And he said to Heywood Hale Broun, 'Woody, I don;t understand it. Help me understand it'.

And Broun said to him, 'Jack, your entire life as a golfer has been a search for perfection. And on Jun e the ninth, you saw it and you recognized it for what it was.'"

- Lawrence Scanlan in The Horse God Built

Repost from New Paltz

Honestly, I’m fully with the TV journalist on this one. The vid is over at Ace of Spades.

How many times does the reporter ask this guy to stop touching him? Good bloody hell. I know at least one person who would have put him in the hospital for a month.

I’m trying to get the context of a hospital here, wondering whether or not that’s the basis of the strangeness, or even the source of this guy’s creepiness.

LOL any of about a dozen guys I know - he would have been in the hospital for a month. Just like the guy who attacked the Tea Party person in NC.


Barack Windbag Obeyme should be encouraged to resign.

Biden could not scerew up too much as a caretaker government - he is a fool and is not competent enoiugh to do major damage.

Our “Hope” and “Change” fraud should be removed, along with his entire corrupt anti-American apparatus.

November cannot get here fast enough - and should mitigate the dangers of the Pelosi-Reid Congress. This joke in the White House must be removed.

"There is nothing honorable about Obama, so get loud about it. His gig is over. The mess is too big. "

The Kenyan's Islamic Putsch

Obama stood by and did nothing while Iranians marched, begged, bled and died for freedom. Scroll this link and don't blink here and here.

He did nothing. And there was so much we could have done. Instead, he aided and abetted the mullahcracy, providing them much-needed cover while they nuked up.

Millions marched and a year later ........ a deadly quiet hangs over Iran and the world.
And the jihad ascends. Galloping apace.

Iran's Revolutionary Guards cash in after a year of suppressing dissent

Formerly Unthinkable

Is it clear yet? This is how the Democrat "ruling class" views YOU.


There IS a difference between the parties...

Birthers? Unnecessary.

From an Unknown Source:


What is certain is 1 fact; it’s not speculation; it’s not a conspiracy theory; it’s not based on rumor or the allegations or speculations of his opponents or supporters. It’s a fact he proclaims every day, and asserts about himself in his biography, Dreams from My Father.

1) We are certain that his father is Barrack Hussein Obama, Sr., a man who was a subject of the British empire on Aug. 4, 1961, and a transient alien in the U.S.A..

2) This one fact proves that according to the
British Nationality Act of 1948, that — let’s call him by this name for the sake of ease — Barack Hussein Obama II was at birth a British subject.

3) And this conclusion in law, in turn, proves that he is not a
natural born citizen of the United States of America; because according to 4 rulings of the Supreme Court, a natural born citizen is, “one born in the country of parents who are citizens,” and since his claimed father was a British subject, not a U.S. Citizen, even if Obama is a U.S. Citizen, he is not a natural born citizen. (It is important to note that “natural born” is a legal term, “natural-born” can be used also for the medical term, of a natural birth without caesarean insection).

4) And this conclusion, in turn, proves that he is not eligible to hold, accept or retain the office of President of the United States, on account of the absolute prohibition in Article II, Section i, paragraph 5, of the U.S. Constitution, that the president be a “natural born citizen.”

5) And this conclusion, in turn, proves in law that Barack Hussein Obama is not the lawful president of the U.S.A., and that none of the laws he signs, the appointments he makes, or the actions he takes are binding in law on anybody.

6) And this establishes that in law he is a usurper, a pretender, and not the lawful Commander-in-chief of the U.S. military.

7) And this proves, beyond the shadow of doubt, that the U.S.A. is currently in its greatest Constitutional Crisis.

So don’t get confused by speculation, rumor, or conspiracy theories. This 1 fact and its consequences in law are all that is necessary to act as a concerned citizen, and to vote accordingly, to march on Washington, D.C., or to justify his immediate and peaceful arrest by lawful authorities in any jurisdiction.

So this is very clear and simple. It distills the issue nicely.

Its NOT a birth certificate issue. Its a technical argument based on citizenship law. Under the law, the best he can be is a dual citizen REGARDLESS of where he was born. That’s why he keep the cvertificate hidden – so the discussion stays on the paperwork and not on the law.

Now can we please go remove this asshole from office and get about the business of cleaning up his mess?

Let’s make sure we don’t have to repeat this stupid experiment again in the future.
