Lyrics:
A Senator lady
Got the news one day
The country’s being spied on
by the NSA

So she went out defending
on each TV set
but when she found out she’d been snooped on
she got all upset

And isn’t it ironic?
I mean, don’t you think?

It’s like you’re at Chris Brown’s
and there’s punch in the fridge
or if The Bachelor
passed a geography quiz

Learning Ted Kennedy
happened to be good at bridge.
And who would have thought?
It figures.

Senator, this may surprise you
and the irony bites
but Congresspeople ain’t the only ones
with 4th Amendment rights

It’s like a minimalist
who does their laundry
with All
or if Woody Allen liked to watch
Kids in the Hall

it’s like FDR
got locked in a Honda Accord
a cheap healthcare plan
that you just can’t afford

If Oscar Pistorius
really hated The Doors
and who would have thought?
It figures.

I heard the government
is sneaking up on you.
Life has a funny, funny way
of calling you out
calling you out.”

Are We Safer?

 

 

 

” The leaders of the congressional intelligence committees say that the United States is not safer today than in recent years.”

 

   They need more money and to curtail more of our liberty’s . It’s the same old story of government by fear . Create a crisis where none exists , then step in as the hero with non-existent solutions to non-existent problems .

 

” CNN’s Candy Crowley kicked off her sit-down interview, asking, “Are we safer now than we were a year ago, two years ago?”

“I don’t think so,” Feinstein replied. “

 

Give us a wee bit more of your rights and we promise we’ll make you safe … oh , and the check is in the mail .

 

” The recent uptick in terrorism reminds us of the need to remain vigilant. But it is also important to keep in mind long term trends. Below are two graphs generated by Cato’s new website, www.humanprogress.org, using Harvard University Professor Steven Pinker’s data. According to Pinker, there has been a sustained downward trend in deaths from terrorism.”

 

   Seeing as the average American is four times more likely to be struck by lightning than to become a victim of terrorism we’d say that we are pretty safe overall , but that doesn’t stop the fear-mongering and pleas from the Statists for us to trust them a little more and relinquish a little more freedom in the name of that catch-all bugaboo … “public safety”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

James Taranto Comments On The Inevitable “We need a debate on gun control” Meme Trotted Out In The Aftermath Of Every Mass Shooting

 

 

 

” Antigun extremists are exhausted and demoralized. Newtown filled them with rage, which was understandable, but the direction in which they turned it–against lawful gun owners and defenders of the Second Amendment–was not. The effort to incite a moral panic was largely a failure, and nobody seems to have the energy to try it again.

The Daily Caller reports that Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, who wasted no time in trying to revive the antigun effort Monday, is reduced to complaining about pestiferous citizens:

“I’m going to have my hair done this morning and there’s somebody outside the salon waiting for me who says, ‘Are you going to try and take our guns away again?’ With, you know, malevolence. It’s that attitude, that, the lack of, I guess, care and concern about the survival of the general public so that somebody can have a house full of weapons.”

Feinstein, like Obama, wants to expand federally required background checks as a precondition for lawful gun purchases. Whatever the merits of such a proposal, in itself or as part of a broader antigun agenda, in the context of the Navy Yard shooting it is a non sequitur.

A background-check system did fail here, but it wasn’t the system for checking gun buyers. As the Washington Post reports, the killer, Aaron Alexis, had “an all-access pass to a half-dozen military installations, despite a history of arrests for shooting episodes and disorderly conduct”: “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SENATE BILL ATTEMPTS TO MAKE THE “RIGHT” OF FREE PRESS A “PRIVILEGE”

 

 

 

” The Senate Judiciary committee has moved forward a bill that would offer “Shield Law” protections for journalists and prevent them from having to testify about their work. The bill, moved forward on Thursday after members of the committee took it upon themselves to define who is a journalist and who is not.

Senator Charles Schumer says that this bill “balances the need for national security with that of a free press.” Though wouldn’t that beg the question, if the press (media) is restricted (balanced with security), how could it be free?

Of course the real story here centers around Senator Dianne Feinstein who has for weeks insisted that the committee must create and limit a definition for the title of “reporter”. Feinstein says that she cannot support everyone who has a blog with “special privilege”, going on to say “If Edward Snowden were to sit down and write this stuff, he would have privilege. I’m not going to go there.” “

 

 

    Welcome to the State’s war on citizen journalism . Make no mistake , this is a direct attack on the first amendment and must be fought with everything we have . Man up bloggers . Spread the word .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

People Who Have Been Trying To Control Your Life Since Reason Was Founded In 1968

 

 

In 2003, to celebrate 35 years of publishing a monthly magazine dedicated to Free Minds and Free Markets, reasonnamed “35 Heroes of Freedom”—innovators, economists, singers, anti-communists, pornographers, professional athletes, and even the occasional politician who contributed to making the world a freer place since 1968.

These weren’t necessarily the 35 best human beings to span the globe. Richard Nixon, for example, was selected for encouraging “cynicism about government” through his rampant abuses of power. And, well, let’s say Dennis Rodman hasn’t aged particularly well. But the list reflected the happy, unpredictable cacophony that has helped liberate the world one novel or deregulation or electric guitar at a time.

Our 45th anniversary has come along at a darker time. The post-9/11 lurch toward unchecked law enforcement power has now become a permanent feature of our bipartisan consensus, with a Democratic president now ordering assassinations of American teenagers and with millions of Americans unaware that the feds are combing through their telecommunications. Keynesians in Washington responded to the financial crisis of 2008 by ushering in a lost decade of government spending, sluggish growth, and the worst employment numbers since Jimmy Carter was president. And after an initially promising Arab Spring, whole swaths of the Middle East seem  poised for a long, sectarian, transnational war.

So it’s fitting that this time around we’re anointing reason’s 45 Enemies of Freedom. Again, these aren’t the worst human beings who bestrode the planet since 1968 (though Pol Pot and Osama bin Laden rank right down there). Some, like John McCain, are even genuine American heroes. What unites them is their active effort to control individuals rather than allow them free choice, to wield power recklessly rather than act on the recognition that the stuff inherently corrupts, and to popularize lies in a world that’s desperate for truth.

You’ll see some familiar names there (we can’t quit you, Tricky Dick!) and some others that deserve to be more notorious. But in our otherwise alphabetical list we’ll start with the man who nearly everyone on our staff nominated, a figure who embodies so much that is wrong with public policy and the political conversation in these United States.

 

1. Michael Bloomberg

CAN THE GOVERNMENT BAN ‘ASSAULT WEAPONS’? CONSTITUTIONAL EXPERTS WEIGH IN

 

 

 

 

 

” This article is part of a series on Guns in America that explores the use of firearms in our country and the debate over gun control.

Since the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, one of the major responses has been to increase restrictions on gun rights, presumably to reduce the probability that a mass shooting will take place.

But what if their proposed methods for doing so are unconstitutional? That’s the argument advanced by some experts on constitutional law, who argue that the landmark cases of District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago protect against the most controversial ideas being proposed, such as an assault weapons ban. Moreover, even some renowned liberal experts on the same law law admit that the tools available to the government are limited.

Key questions in the debate are: Can the government ban assault weapons without violating the Constitution? If so, why? To answer these questions, TheBlaze spoke to legal authorities on both sides of the ideological divide, including some truly famous names within the realm of constitutional law. What we found may surprise you.

A Teaser To Pique Your Interest …

” On these grounds, at least one expert would toss out assault weapons bans entirely. That expert, Randy Barnett of Georgetown Law Center, explained his reasoning to theBlaze via phone:

“When you get down to specifics, I think some of the easier cases for finding unconstitutionality is the assault weapons ban, which bans a weapon in common use, which is the phrase that Heller used to describe the weapons that are protected by the Second Amendment,” Barnett told TheBlaze. “There’s hardly a weapon that’s in more common use than the AR-15 so-called assault weapon. I say so-called, because we all know this is a made-up category. They don’t fire any faster than a constitutionally protected handgun fires, and it’s typically less lethal than a handgun.” “

Feinstein’s Hubby Wins CA High Speed Rail Contract

 

cal_hsr

 

” Out of the entire universe of those who could have won the first phase construction contract for California’s high speed rail boondoggle, who would stand out as the last person who would win it if there were no political patronage.

Put another way, who is the most likely person to win it if there is political patronage?

Both questions have the same answer: Richard Blum, the husband of California senator Diane Feinstein.

So, who won the contract? Blum, of course, as the principle owner of Tutor Perini, the lead firm in the three-firm consortium selected by the California High Speed Rail Authority.

The Perini-Zachary-Parsons bid was the lowest received from the five consortia participating in the bidding process, but “low” is a relative term. The firms bid $985,142,530 to build the wildly anticipated first section of high speed rail track that will tie the megopolis of Madera to the global finance center of Fresno. Do the division, and you find that the low bid came in at a mere $35 million per mile.

And that doesn’t include the cost of rolling stock (that’s engines and cars to the normal among us). Nor does it include the cost of electrifying the route. Does it at least include the cost of land acquisition? No, it does not.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7 Liberal Hypocrites Who Call For Gun Control While Being Protected By Guns

 

 

 

 

” One of the great ironies of the gun control debate is that everyone who calls for gun control still wants a man with a gun protecting him. Every governor in America has armed security. You have to go through a metal detector guarded by men with guns to get into the Capitol building. Barack Obama has hundreds of Secret Service agents carrying fully automatic weapons who protect his safety. Even run-of-the-mill Democrats who want to take guns away from everyone else will unhesitatingly pick up the phone and call the police if they feel threatened — so that a man with a gun can show up and make them safe.

Unfortunately, there are some people in this country who apparently believe they’re so special, so elite, so much better than the rest of the “riff-raff,” that they should have a right to be protected even if you don’t.”

 

 

 

Sen. Feinstein’s Assault Weapons Ban Amendment Is DOA

 

 

 

 

” Well, any conservative could have seen this coming, despite the incessant rambling of anti-gun zealots calling for a ban on so-called assault weapons.  The first ban had a de minimis effect on lowering violent crime, and Democrats paid a heavy political price during the ’94 midterms for it.  Now, the Washington Post’s Ed O’Keefe reports today that this anti-gun provision is dead on arrival. Furthermore, it’s not included in the official bill, but as an amendment to it.

So, in the Democratic-controlled Senate, Feinstein’s amendment couldn’t even muster forty votes!  That means there’s at least sixteen Democratic Senators, who said to the gentlelady from California “no thanks” to her proposal.

This is an interesting takeaway since last January new outlets, like Bloomberg, were touting that America was “ever so falling out of love with guns.”  Joshua Green penned the column, and noted that “the course has been set, and the taboo on gun control lifted.”  Yeah, Mr. Green – Americans still like their guns, their Second Amendment rights, and for government to leave them alone.

 

 

 

 

Growing Number Of States Eye Bills To Defy Federal Gun Laws

 

 

 

” On March 12 and 14, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed both Sen. Charles Schumer’s (D-NY) “Fix Gun Checks Act,” which would criminalize all private firearm sales and Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) “Assault Weapons Ban.”

These bills have a long way to go before they become law – if they ever do – but states across the nation are introducing their own legislation to preemptively defeat any new federal gun laws.

In Ohio, two senators have introduced SB36, which would prohibit firearms seizures, registration and bans in their state.

Sen. Jared Carpenter introduced a bill that would prohibit Kentucky from enforcing new federal gun control laws if they’re enacted.  The measure passed by a vote of 34-3.”

 

 

 

Dianne Feinstein Caught Lying About Her Past Gun Grab Intentions

 

 

” In less than a minute, this video will expose Dianne Feinstein’s lies about her real intentions behind gun bans.”

Explosive Exchange at Gun Hearing Between Ted Cruz and Dianne Feinstein

 

 

” Ted Cruz and Dianne Feinstein had this explosive exchange at a Senate Judiciary Hearing on guns earlier today:”

 

    Watch the video , wherein Senators Feinstein , Leahy and Durbin amply demonstrate the “reverence” that the leaders of the democratic party reserve for our most sacred legal document .

  Your rights are what we say they are … unless by some chance the courts rebuke us, but the burden of proof lies with you “the citizens” to prove us wrong .

   That is exactly backwards . There was a time when congress was made up of such men that the constitutionality of any new law was well and truly debated BEFORE it became law and it wasn’t left to the citizenry to try and keep their rights from being usurped every time congress was in session .

Mark Twain said it best : “No man’s life, liberty, or property are safe while the congress is in session.”

 

 

Vet Group Responds to Proposed PTSD Gun Limits

 

 

 

” The Disabled American Veterans has written a letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., because of a recent statement she made that post-traumatic stress disorder “is a new phenomenon” and should be a factor in whether a veteran is allowed to own a gun.

In a nearly 900-word letter DAV Executive Director Barry A. Jesinoski said Feinstein’s comments are not accurate and only perpetuate a popular falsehood linking PTSD and violence.

“We ask that you clarify your statement to reassure people that you hold no such bias toward veterans or military service members,” he said.

 

“We do not believe an assumption should be made based on anecdotal evidence that an individual diagnosed with PTSD should automatically be considered incapable of governing one’s anger and thoughts of violence,” he wrote. “This kind of assumption fosters the social stigma and discrimination that challenges individuals in their efforts towards mental health rehabilitation and recovery.” “

 

 

 

johngalt:

   Unbelievable . So in dedicating their lives to protect their country , their country in return is going to make that very sacrifice reason to take away one of the soldier’s GOD-given rights . We are sure that will do wonders for enlistment . Colorado has gone absolutely mad .

   But the sentiment is not limited to Colorado Idiots …. California breeds them too … Dianne Feinstein joins the chorus .

Feinstein: Veterans May Have PTSD And Should Not Be Exempt From Assault Weapons Ban

” SEN. DIANNE FEINSTEIN: If I understand this, this adds an exemption of retired military. As I understand our bill, no issue has arose in this regard during the 10 years the expired ban was in effect and what we did in the other bill was exempt possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States. So that included active military.

The problem with expanding this is that, you know, with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it’s not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this.”

Shameful is right !

Originally posted on Twitchy:

During Friday’s marathon gun control hearing in the Colorado Senate, Republican Sen. Kent Lambert offered an amendment to exempt active military members, veterans and their families from the gun magazine ban.

Enter Sen. Mary Hodge, a disgraceful Dem who urged fellow lawmakers to oppose the exemption because “some of them come back with significant mental health problems.”

Responding to Hodge, Lambert noted that there are already laws to prevent mentally ill people from owning firearms. Here’s a rough transcript of the exchange between Lambert…

Does Feinstein Really Have ‘All the Police’ Backing Her ‘Assault’ Weapons Bill? One Former Cop Says No.

 

 

 

 

” Yesterday on MSNBC, California Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein made a startling claim. She claimed that “I think we’ve got all the police,” backing her latest “assault” weapons ban, adding that “we have all the mayors virtually.”

Is that true? Feinstein may have the support of most big city mayors, liberals like Michael Bloomberg foremost among them, but what about police officers?

This afternoon I spoke with former Rep. Sandy Adams (R-FL). Sandy Adams has one of the most interesting backgrounds of anyone in politics. She dropped out of school at age 17 to join the US Air Force. She married at 18, but that marriage turned out to be an abusive one. She ended up studying and becoming a deputy sheriff in the Orange County (FL) Sheriff’s Department. That was in 1985. She served in law enforcement for 17 years, losing her second husband in the line of duty in 1989. Her life and work propelled her to become an advocate for crime victims’ rights, which led her to study criminal justice, and eventually, politics. She spent eight years in the Florida House before her election to Congress.”

Time For Law Abiding Gun Owners To Stand And Fight For Their 2A Rights

 

 

 

 

” It’s no secret that the recent mass shootings are being used and manipulated to slowly erode, gnaw at and diminish the 2nd Amendment.

The Diane Feinstein’s and Mike Bloomberg’s of this country essentially want to neuter the 2nd Amendment so it’s essentially just a privilege in name only, not a Right as guaranteed by our Bill of Rights. President Barack Hussein Obama has initiated 23 Executive Orders, which potentially could put 2A rights on a very slippery slope and blur the lines of HIPPA laws and personal health information (PHI) as it relates to gun ownership.

Now more than ever, each and every law abiding gun owner needs to stand up and be heard. That action can take many shapes and forms. Recently there have been a host of states where Guns Across America rallies have been organized and citizens have exercised their 1st Amendment right to support their 2nd amendment right! Bravo!!

If you are reading this article and own one gun and are not a member of the NRA or any gun ownership supporting organization please join NOW! Listed below, are several organizations that all work to protect your rights under the 2nd Amendment and will fight for you to maintain that right. The enemies list of the NRA is long and deep, including Rosie O’Donnell which is a clear cut indication that they work hard to support you….the law abiding gun owner. More importantly they are very effective as are many of those listed below. JOIN NOW!

What’s an Assault Weapon?

 

 

 

 

 

 

New survey data suggest most Americans don’t know which guns are covered by the ban they support.

 

 

   There is a case to be made that the public has been , and continues to be , misled as to what these ” assault weapons ” really are by the very organizations (MSM) charged with informing them of the truth .

 

 

” Although arbitrary distinctions are a defining characteristic of “assault weapon” bans, recent polls indicate that most Americans support them. New survey data suggest one possible explanation: Most Americans don’t know what “assault weapons” are.

 

 

   The more cynical among us , ourselves included , would maintain that this deception is in fact a deliberate attempt to hoodwink the public in pursuit of the statist agenda to which the dinosaur media adhere .

 

 

” A Reason-Rupe Public Opinion Survey conducted this month suggests such misconceptions are common. After asking the 1,000 respondents if they thought people should be “prohibited from owning assault weapons,” the survey (which is sponsored by my employer, the Reason Foundation) asked half of the sample to “describe an assault weapon.” The answers are illuminating.

About two-thirds of the respondents described “assault weapons” as guns that fire rapidly, guns that can fire a large number of rounds without reloading, guns with a lot of “power,” or guns used by the military. More than a quarter described them as “machine guns,” “automatics,” or the equivalent (e.g., “multiple rounds with just one pull of the trigger”).

 

 

    Ignorance breeds ignorance , or in this case perhaps we should say , lies breed ignorance .

Piers Morgan … Moron … Gun Grabber … Backs Away 

” Piers Morgan has conceded “victory” to the NRA in the gun control debate as it looks increasingly likely that Dianne Feinstein’s draconian gun control bill will not pass the Senate. Meanwhile, while Obama says semi-auto assault rifles should only be in the hands of the military, the Department of Homeland Security has purchased 7,000 fully-automatic assault weapons.”

Apologies To The Examiner But We Felt It Needed To Be As Widely Exposed As Possible . Hopefully They Will Be Understanding Of Us Printing Their Article In It’s Entirety 

 

Sen. Dianne Feinstein To Introduce Assault Weapons Ban On Thursday

Waco: The Rules of Engagement

” The legislation is also expected to require gun owners to register semi-automatic rifles categorized as “assault weapons” with the Federal Government under the National Firearms Act – which may require assault rifle owners to pay a $200 registering fee and submit photographs and fingerprints to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. “

 We’re certain we can trust the people that brought us Waco , Ruby Ridge and Fast & Furious not to do anything untoward with this proposed registry of firearms 

  We’re sure that Brian Terry , Jaime Zapata , hundreds of dead Mexican citizens , the 82 men women and children of the Branch Davidian compound and Vicki and Sammy Weaver would encourage us to TRUST our government … Oops , sorry they and untold others are all DEAD at our government’s beneficent hand ….

 

Control Politicians, Not Guns

 

 

 

 

 

A Fine Piece By Cal Thomas

 

” President Obama put Vice President Joe Biden in charge of the task force. Biden calls his gun control effort a “moral issue.” Does Biden suffer from selective morality? For him, same-sex marriage and abortion don’t appear to be moral issues, as they are for his Catholic church, but gun control is.

The loss of liberty always begins at the extremes, but it won’t stop there. Radicals won’t be satisfied with outlawing one type of gun. In 1995, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) told “60 Minutes,” “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States, for an outright ban, picking up (every gun) … Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in. I would have done it…” In 2004, when he was an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama voted against a bill that affirms the right of citizens to defend themselves against home invasions.”

 

The Money Quote 

 

” The Sandy Hook shooter reportedly stopped killing children and killed himself when law enforcement officers arrived on the scene. This contains no lesson for the gun control crowd, which mostly opposes armed guards in schools.”

 

The Finale

 

” You know rational thinking is lacking when Pravda, Russia’s communist political newspaper, makes sense. In a recent article, Stanislav Mishin writes that after the Bolsheviks seized Moscow in 1917, they promised to leave alone the well-armed citizens if they did not interfere. “They did not and for that were asked afterwards,” writes Mishin, “to come register themselves and their weapons, whereupon they were promptly shot.”

 

The Ultimate Truth 

 

The Second Amendment was written to protect citizens from tyrannical government and to preserve our liberties. It’s not primarily for the protection of hunters and target shooters, though they are included. Those politicians who wish to ignore the Constitution are the ones who need to be controlled, not law-abiding gun owners.”

Marine who Wrote ‘I will not be disarmed’ Letter Debates Piers Morgan (VIDEO)

 

 

 

 

 

” The reality, as Cpl. Boston expressed, is that bad people will continue to do bad things by any means available.  The gunman at Virginia Tech, which is still the deadliest school shooting in American history, did not use an AR-15 – he used two commonly owned handguns: a 9mm Glock and a .22 caliber Walter P22.

In the end, those who believe we can stop the murderous resolve of deranged individuals via gun bans or regulations should consider what Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian mass murderer who gunned down 69 people at a youth summer camp in 2011, wrote in his 1,500 page manifesto on the subject of gun control:

IF they take away our AN-fertilizer, we will use AN from Ice packs!  If they take away our ice packs; we will hi-jack propane trucks and use them as secondary explosive charges!  If they take away our propane trucks; we will fight them with conventional weapons! If they ban the sale of weapons; we will smuggle in AK-47s from the Balkans and the Middle East!

They cannot prevent us, the European conservatives from eventually seizing political and military power.  We will succeed even if we have to create our very own improvised guns.

Laws won’t stop killers from killing – but a bullet to the head will. “

 

 

FBI: MORE PEOPLE KILLED WITH HAMMERS, CLUBS EACH YEAR THAN RIFLES

 

 

 

” According to the FBI annual crime statistics, the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs far outnumbers the number of murders committed with a rifle.

This is an interesting fact, particularly amid the Democrats’ feverish push to ban many different rifles, ostensibly to keep us safe of course.

However, it appears the zeal of Sens. like Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) is misdirected. For in looking at the FBI numbers from 2005 to 2011, the number of murders by hammers and clubs consistently exceeds the number of murders committed with a rifle. “
