Debbie Downer has her knickers in a twist

What happens when a Democrat loses Politico?    ….

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz(D-Fla) has been caught with her shorts in a wad, as her behind the scenes squabble with trial lawyer John Morgan burst into plain view on the digital pages of Politico.

Morgan promoted and funded last year’s failed attempt at legalizing weed in Florida to the tune of $4 million of his personal funds, only to be opposed by Debbie.  She committed the unpardonable sin by using Republican talking points to loudly rail against Morgan’s bill.

Debbie ShultzNow that Debbie is making noises about running for Marco Rubio’s Senate seat, the chickens are coming home to roost, and DWS is trying to make nice. Morgan is having none of it.

He forwarded the email chain to Politico, and it’s all out in the open now.

Schultz’s office offered to change her position on medical marijuana if a major Florida donor recanted his withering criticism of her. ….

“No,” Morgan responded. “She is a bully. I beat bullies up for a living.”

“Her days of pushing people around are over.”

I have a feeling that the pot bill will pass this time around, with or without Debbie’s support.  But her chances of lining up with the big time lawyer money for a Senate run have taken a serious downward turn.

Heh™

BATFE To Ban Common AR-15 Ammo

I’m copying/pasting this entire piece from the NRA ILA:

Gun Control isn’t about guns.  It’s about control!

In a move clearly intended by the Obama Administration to suppress the acquisition, ownership and use of AR-15s and other .223 caliber general purpose rifles, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives unexpectedly announced today that it intends to ban commonplace M855 ball ammunition as “armor piercing ammunition.” The decision continues Obama’s use of his executive authority to impose gun control restrictions and bypass Congress.

It isn’t even the third week of February, and the BATFE has already taken three major executive actions on gun control. First, it was a major change to what activities constitute regulated “manufacturing” of firearms. Next, BATFE reversed a less than year old position on firing a shouldered “pistol.” Now, BATFE has released a “Framework for Determining Whether Certain Projectiles are ‘Primarily Intended for Sporting Purposes’ Within the Meaning of 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)(c)”, which would eliminate M855’s exemption to the armor piercing ammunition prohibition and make future exemptions nearly impossible.

gun-controlBy way of background, federal law imposed in 1986 prohibits the manufacture, importation, and sale by licensed manufacturers or importers, but not possession, of “a projectile or projectile core which may be used in a handgun and which is constructed entirely . . . from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium.” Because there are handguns capable of firing M855, it “may be used in a handgun.” It does not, however, have a core made of the metals listed in the law; rather, it has a traditional lead core with a steel tip, and therefore should never have been considered “armor piercing.” Nonetheless, BATFE previously declared M855 to be “armor piercing ammunition,” but granted it an exemption as a projectile “primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes.”

Now, however, BATFE says that it will henceforth grant the “sporting purposes” exception to only two categories of projectiles:

Category I: .22 Caliber Projectiles

A .22 caliber projectile that otherwise would be classified as armor piercing ammunition under 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)(B) will be considered to be “primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes” under section 921(a)(17)(C) if the projectile weighs 40 grains or less AND is loaded into a rimfire cartridge.

Category II: All Other Caliber Projectiles

Except as provided in Category I (.22 caliber rimfire), projectiles that otherwise would be classified as armor piercing ammunition will be presumed to be “primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes” under section 921(a)(17)(C) if the projectile is loaded into a cartridge for which the only handgun that is readily available in the ordinary channels of commercial trade is a single shot handgun. ATF nevertheless retains the discretion to deny any application for a “sporting purposes” exemption if substantial evidence exists that the ammunition is not primarily intended for such purposes.

BATFE is accepting comments until March 16, 2015 on this indefensible attempt to disrupt ammunition for the most popular rifle in America. Check back early next week for a more in-depth analysis of this “framework” and details on how you can submit comments.

 

How to comment – from the BATFE

ATF will carefully consider all comments, as appropriate, received on or before March 16, 2015, and will give comments received after that date the same consideration if it is practical to do so, but assurance of consideration cannot be given except as to comments received on or before March 16, 2015. ATF will not acknowledge receipt of comments. Submit comments in any of three ways (but do not submit the same comments multiple times or by more than one method):

John Kerry: Epic Fail

John Kerry is a complete and utter failure as the Secretary of State. It isn’t even close. This is a man who makes Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State look competent. He is the perfect Secretary of State for Barack Obama, arguably the worst president in the history of the Republic.

kerry on a bike2A classic example is currently underway in the nuclear talks with the mullahs in Iran. Kerry’s wicked smart negotiating team is described as negotiating from a position of weakness, and routinely “plea” with Iran in their talks, and that Iran’s leading negotiator “frequently shouts” at U.S. officials. link

And now, according to a survey of professors at the top 25 foreign policy schools conducted by Foreign Policy Magazine, Kerry is the absolute worst Secretary of State in history. source

Bulletin: Imminent Terrorist Attack on Southwest Border

Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued.  Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.

plato-o-plomoSpecifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.

Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one JW source.  “It’s coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, another source confirms. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information.   JudicialWatch.org

 

The time to come up with an effective strategy for dealing with these cretins is long overdue, but our current President of the United States is much too busy fundraising and playing racially divisive political games to bother.

When this attack occurs, the S.O.P. reaction of the Administration will be to first feign surprise.  Then, blame it on someone else, probably another intelligence failure.  We can be sure that no one at the White House will know anything about it until they see it on the Media.

I have developed a throbbing case of Obama fatigue.  To say his act is old is understated.

But wait!  There’s more!

ISIS document on SW border trhreat breitbartWriting at Slate, Joshua Keating offers the typical liberal reaction:   it’s a “baseless claim”.  In fact, most of those entering illegally from Afghanistan or Syria are probably fleeing terrorism.  ISYN

Breitbart verifies ISIS threat with leaked document. (how’s that for “baseless”, Joshua?)

Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) was asked if there is any current interaction between ISIS and Mexican drug cartels he said “yes” and added they are “talking to each other.”  (Joshua characterizes this assertion as “ridiculous”).

Who cares about all this terrorism business anyway, when the real problem is …(wait for it) …global warming.

20 Smidgens

“The Obama administration has lost or destroyed e-mails for more than 20 witnesses, and in each case, the loss wasn’t disclosed to the National Archives or Congress for months or years, in violation of federal law,” House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA).

Joining Ms Tavenner in this Obama Administration Hall of Shame are:

  • David Fish, who routinely corresponded with Lois Lerner
  • Lerner subordinate Andy Megosh,
  • Lerner’s technical adviser Justin Lowe
  • Cincinnati-based agent Kimberly Kitchens (who donated to President Obama’s 2012 campaign and  worked in the IRS Exempt Organizations office in Cincinnati),
  • Nikole Flax, former chief of staff to IRS commissioner Steven Miller (Flax made 31 visits to the White House between July 12, 2010 and May 8, 2013),
  • Michelle Eldridge, IRS national media relations chief,
  • Nancy Heagney (Another Cincinnati-based Exempt Organizations official that worked under Lerner),
  • Julie Chen, agent,
  • Tyler Chumny, supervisory agent,

digital evidenceEvidence must be collected and preserved to get any type of court to review whether laws have been broken. That job is impossible when the ones being investigated are the ones in power.  Lies, misdirection, stonewalling,  footdragging, and destruction of evidence:  We live in dark, evil, corrupt, lawless times.  It will get worse before it gets better.

I recall that a young Hillary Clinton was one of many Democrats crying bloody murder over 18 minutes of “lost” tape in the Watergate scandal, before she was fired by Jerry Zeifman. Why was she fired? In Zeifman’s own words:

“Because she was a liar.” … “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality,”

P.J. O’Rourke once said, “My Grandmother wouldn’t even speak the word ‘Democrat’ if there were children in the room, she’d say ‘bastards’ instead.”

Indeed.

Benny Thompson–It’s All About Race

Chokwelumumba-benniethompsonMississippi’s own Bennie Thompson.  Elected from the gerrymandered 2nd District, drawn to guarantee a black voting supermajority, Bennie knows a thing or two about racial preference.  He bagan his career in local politics as a ‘race man’, finding racial motives and evil intent on the part of anyone and anything that opposed him.  Being  elected to  Congress  hasn’t changed him one bit–not even a smidgen.

Andrew Kaczynski reports at BuzzFeed:

A Mississippi Democratic Congressman says Clarence Thomas is an “Uncle Tom,” Mitch McConnell is a “racist,” and that Republicans are only anti-big government and anti-Obamacare because President Obama is black. Rep. Bennie Thompson made the comments over the weekend while appearing on a New Nation of Islam radio program.

“I’ve been in Washington. I saw three presidents now. I never saw George Bush treated like this. I never saw Bill Clinton treated like this with such disrespect,” Thompson said. “That Mitch McConnell would have the audacity to tell the president of the United States — not the chief executive, but the commander-in-chief — that ‘I don’t care what you come up with we’re going to be against it.’ Now if that’s not a racist statement I don’t know what is.”

Thompson adds at 2:40 in the video that the governor of Mississippi was against expanding Medicaid through Obamacare “just because a black man created it.”

At 3:00 into the video, Thompson adds opposition to Obama is “all about race” and “when a black man comes with an idea [for Obamacare] there’s something wrong with it. Again, it’s race creeping into the picture.”

At 4:47 in the video, he says the anti-government attitude has only been around since Obama was president.

“Now all of a sudden, government is the worst thing in the world since a black man became president.”

Discussing the Supreme Court and affirmative action, Thompson refers to Justice Clarence Thomas as an “Uncle Tom,” adding, “it’s almost to the point saying this man doesn’t like black people, he doesn’t like being black.”

There is just so much wrong with Bennie’s statements, I don’t know where to begin.  But, why bother?  There are no Jedi mind tricks I’m aware of to pry open Bennie’s mind.  He certainly didn’t get to where he is by being open-minded.   Nope, ol’ Bennie is a hard-core socialist.

  • In November 1979, Marxists from the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee initiated a Democratic Agenda Conference, in Washington, D.C. The conference focused on “corporate power” as the key barrier to “economic and political democracy,” concepts many Democratic Agenda participants defined as “socialism.” Bennie Thompson of the Mississippi Association of Black Mayors joined a panel entitled: “Relating Local Issues to the Democratic Party.”

  • In July 1996, Democratic Socialists of America (formerly Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee) endorsed Bennie Thompson, Mississippi 2, in that year’s Congressional elections.

  • In 1982, Bennie Thompson served on the National Coordinating Committee of a Communist Party USA front, the National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, which was led by leading Party members Angela Davis and Charlene Mitchell.

 

Bennie will have job security for as long as MS-02 remains a gerrymandered mess.  Check your privelege, Benny.

Supreme Court Refuses To Hear Case Of Ward “Chutch” Churchill

Not a big deal, really, just one of those stories with the sound of the second shoe dropping.

In a joint statement, CU President Bruce Benson and Boulder campus Chancellor Phil DiStefano said they were pleased with the decision and now consider the matter to be settled.

Any reasonable person knew he was done at CU and would never regain his tenured position at that institution again, not after about 20 other academics ratted him out as a total fraud.

Still, we had some good old times with “Chutch” over at the place that shall not be named, where many of us met as blog buddies.

So in celebration of the fraud Churchill’s just firing being upheld by the courts, I take us back, waaay back to 4 Feb 2005, when Iowahawk introduced us to Chutch.

Remembering St. Pancake: 10 years later

Rachel Corrie, the fun-loving idealist, the peace-making protector of innocent Arab children, the face of human shields everywhere,  the rich, white, suburban girl who became the matron saint of wannabe Code-Pink martyrs, the Peace Activist™ whose actions still beg the question, “Is it bravery or stupidity to stand in-between a kill-dozer and its intended target?”, Rachel Corrie was flattened 10 years ago today.

St. PancakeYes, that Rachel Corrie.

It has been ten years, and the myth of St. Pancake still lives, strung along by the international left, still intent on the death of the state of Israel, and as many Jews as it takes.

So, Happy St. Pancake Day! Have a stack of Aunt Jemimahs and walk out on the tab.

Blame it on the Zionists.

Blame it on Bush.

Rachel Corrie lives!

NFL has more integrity than Mainstream Media

Poor ol’ Brian Stropolo.  He posted pictures of himself at a New Orleans Saints pre-season tailgate party on Facebook.  ESPN found out and told on him.  Rightly so, I believe.  Especially since he was supposed to officiate a Saints game.

At least the NFL had the integrity to remove  him.  The NFL pulled him from the game to avoid the appearance of impropriety.

You probably heard about it.

Now I know that politics is nowhere near as important as professional football.  So, I guess I’m not real surprised to see this story at Fox News.

A CNN political reporter last week tweeted a link to a fundraising page for the Obama campaign — one selling tickets for as much as $5,000 for a Milwaukee, Wis., reception. 

But, still.  Seriously CNN?  You care nothing about the appearance of impropriety?
When asked, CNN didn’t even respond.

#OWS: Jackson, MS

The Occupation Crowd made it to Smith Park in Jackson, yesterday. Nuke’s contributor, Jseedubya was there to provide us with some idea of what happened.

I went to the Occupy Jackson Rally this morning. I wanted to see for myself what this “movement” was all about. I understand the basis of their complaints, corporate greed, and the fact that politicians favor Wall Street over Main Street. In fact, I can relate to their anger as I too am having a tough time in this degraded economy. I agree that there needs to be some significant changes to the status quo, and I was curious to hear their ideas, if any, that the 99 percenters were promoting.

Some of what I saw was just plain bizarre. They claim to have no “leader”, but one fellow wearing a “wifebeater” t-shirt, and oversize belt buckle with a pot leaf emblem on it, did seem to be the head honcho. He would make a statement, and the crowd would repeat his words, almost like the were chanting. Then they would throw their hands up in the air like an old-time tent revival, and wiggle their fingers in agreement with the chanting.

There were signs in the park that said “Park Closes at 7:00 PM.” I didn’t stick around to see if the hippies would test the patience of the Police or not. JPD is not known for suffering fools gladly.

Accidental Ecoterrorism

ECO-TERRORISM? Gunman who took hostages at Discovery Channel inspired by Al Gore. “Lee appears to have posted environmental and population-control demands online, saying humans are ruining the planet and that Discovery should develop programs to sound the alarm. . . . Lee said he experienced an ‘awakening’ when he watched former Vice President Al Gore’s environmental documentary ‘An Inconvenient Truth.’”

Won’t Al Gore please stop it with his extremist, eliminationist rhetoric before he inspires still more violence?
…. Glenn Reynolds

I couldn’t help but be reminded of this interview with the former Vice-President …

Grist: There’s a lot of debate right now over the best way to communicate about global warming and get people motivated. Do you scare people or give them hope? What’s the right mix?

Gore: I think the answer to that depends on where your audience’s head is. In the United States of America, unfortunately we still live in a bubble of unreality. And the Category 5 denial is an enormous obstacle to any discussion of solutions. Nobody is interested in solutions if they don’t think there’s a problem. Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.  (my emphasis)

Apparently, the late Mr. James Jay Lee missed this interview. “Qver-representation of factual presentations,” indeed.

Global warming means big business for Copenhagen

Hopenchange means big business for Copenhagen. Especially in the sex business.

City leaders report that business is brisk in the sex trade, and that evenings mean big bucks, as many global warmers, politicians and civil servants are reported to have availed themselves of the city’s prostitutes.

““We’ve been extremely busy. Politicians also need to relax after a long day,” says ‘Miss Dina’, herself a prostitute.”

Perhaps this is the kind of capitalism that the socialists approve of. Or, maybe after screwing over the public through the cap and trade tax plan, the Goremons need some time to unwind.

Emissions trading, indeed.

So what is my impression of obamessiah’s first appointment to the Appellate Court?

Here’s a hint.

Warning:  This decision is breathtaking in its fatuity.

Judge David Hamilton found it Constitutionally offensive to pray a prayer opening the Indiana Legislative session “in Jesus’ name,” but, specifically found it OK to for an Imam pray invoking the name of “Allah.”

Brillyunt.

Obama must be exhausted, having to tote that huge brain around with him all the time.

But what’s this ? In 4 hours 17 minutes there have been only 167 comments on what should be a record-setting celebratory thread, including only one by the Amphibian Queen himself, and it has nothing to do with the thread topic. [ed: after 9 hours, 172 comments.]

And what should have been a victory thread was only the top thread for a little over an hour before it was time for a thread slamming Rick Santorum as a creationist right-winger. And all the while, the blog is topped by yet another swipe at Malkin.

The Dhimwit Of The Month For May Goes To “24”

Jack-Bauer-Dhimwit

The Religion Of Peace, in keeping with its tradition of selecting the most deserving recipient for this dubious honor, didn’t have as difficult a time as in previous months.

They state, in their citation:

CAIR honchos no doubt cheered the seventh season finale, as Kiefer Sutherland’s character, uber-patriot Jack Bauer, was literally on his knees before Allah. Presumably dying of poison in the plot, the agent who once defended America from Islamic terrorism literally invites a local imam into his hospital room – of whom he can beg forgiveness and pray with in his “final moments.”
————–
With Jack Bauer’s deathbed “Shahada,” the producers may have finally jumped the Muslim shark. Let’s hope so. The series can hardly get any worse. Janeane Garofalo was actually cast as an FBI intelligence agent, which is wrong on many levels. (credibility-wise, it isn’t terribly clear how she managed to beat out Barney Rubble for the role).

Well said and written!
I gave up on “24” several years ago, not because it had “jumped the shark,” but because it jumped on and off frequently, in the same episodes. Honestly, how many times can terrorist escape a completely surrounded building?

In any event, after they took last year off, and returned for the 2009 season, I thought I would at least see if the show would be an improvement of the ridiculous product they had been foisting on viewers since the first season. It started out interesting, and then it happened. It was in the last half hour of the show, when, during a commercial break, a ‘PSA’ featuring the actress playing POTUS, came on and proceeded to proselytize about global warming. I immediately switched channels, never to return for the remainder of the season, but was informed by friends some of the additional nonsense that ensued, culminating with Jack calling for an imam on his (supposed) death bed.

A friend of mine had recorded it, and I had to see it for myself.
While they panned back, and you couldn’t hear what was said, it left me wondering if Jack did mutter the “shahada.”

So, I fully extend my congratulations to the cast and writers of “24” for their well deserved honor. It isn’t every year when such a clear message of dhimmitude is expressed by a prime time drama series.

Marine imposter busted

from the Denver Post

rick duncan strandlofRick Strandlof, executive director of the Colorado Veterans Alliance and the man most colleagues knew as Rick Duncan, was front and center during the 2008 political campaigns in Colorado. He spoke at a Barack Obama veterans rally in front of the Capitol in July, co-hosted several events with then- congressional candidate Jared Polis and attacked Republican Senate candidate Bob Schaffer in a TV ad paid for by the national group Votevets.org.

And the mostly Democratic candidates he supported — looking for credibility on veterans issues and the war — lapped it up appreciatively.

Only one problem:  Duncan was a complete phony.  His real name is Rick Strandlof, and  was exposed by two members of  the CVA, who became suspicious of inconsistencies in his story… –>source

Strandlof, 31, who invented the name Duncan and claimed he was a former Marine captain and 1997 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, never served in the military and falsely claimed that he was in the Pentagon during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the group said…He often spoke vividly of being in the Pentagon on Sept. 11 when a hijacked airliner was crashed into the building. “The duality of that day, the good and the bad that I saw that day, are forever etched in my mind and in my memory,” he told KOAA television …

“I was involved in an IED explosion that killed four Marines,” he said. “I have a plate roughly the size of a, like, cup and saucer on this portion of my skull.” … Strandlof also claims to have had a hip replacement and to have “had a finger blown off.” Strandlof often spoke of his mistreatment by Defense Department officials, saying they dragged their feet on giving him a disability retirement.

That sounds very much like another war “hero”, whose wartime memories were just seared — seared in his memory, doesn’t it?

Here is the video of Strandlof in a Jared Polis for Congress ad…
Strandlof is in the center, and identifies himself as Captain Rick Duncan, USMC (ret), served 3 tours in Iraq.

Pelosi: Liar or incompetent

Nancy Pelosi’s nationally televised press conference/meltdown this morning raised more questions than it answered.

In our discussion that followed in the previous thread, Swampie asked an important question:

Is Nancy Pelosi lying about the CIA briefings on enhanced interrogation techniques, or is she so dim that she really didn’t understand what was being said in the briefings. I suppose there is a third alternative, that she could be telling the truth. Frankly, I can’t imagine that anyone who watched her performance would come to that conclusion.

So, let’s put it to our readers. What do y’all think?
