Eleanor Holmes Norton: Congress Has ‘No Right To Know’ Executive Branch’s Business

 

 

 

 

 

” Eleanor Holmes Norton, the non-voting congressional delegate for the District of Columbia, angrily sputtered during a congressional hearing Friday that the White House should not be held up to scrutiny, saying that there was no right to know what it was doing behind closed doors.

“ You don’t have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government, my friend. That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government,” Norton said during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.

  It was, to put mildly, a significant departure from the more traditional liberal stance that openness and transparency are must[s] to prevent abuses of power by government officials. Instead the leading advocate for statehood for the District of Columbia literally argued that even the congressional committee charged with oversight shouldn’t be asking questions in the first place.”

” Since late 2013, a number of foreign nationals have been shot dead in Libya. The Foreign Office said further attacks were “likely”.   The updated travel advice comes amid reports of at least 30 deaths in clashes between Libyan government forces and Islamist militants in the city of Benghazi.

  There were also reports of intense fighting near Tripoli airport. More than 20 people are said to have been killed.   On Saturday, the US evacuated its embassy in Tripoli, citing a “real risk” because of the fighting.”

Why The Salvo 12 Is The Most Important Suppressor Ever Made (VIDEO)

 

 

 

 

 

” Things have gotten pretty exciting lately with the announcement of the Salvo 12. Everyone, not just SilencerCo, is pretty wired about the concept of a suppressed shotgun. It’s been done before, but only by boutiques and never by anyone with the clout and standing that SilencerCo has in this industry.

  SilencerCo’s rise to being number one seller of suppressors has been nothing short of phenomenal.

  Founded in 2008, the company started out as a two-man operation and is now an industry leader. They’ve done by being innovative and hands-on, producing a better, longer-lasting product and focusing on marketing.

“ I jumped on a plane and flew to all 39 states where silencers are legal to meet with dealers,” said Joshua Walden, one of SilencerCo’s founders, to Inc. magazine. “We ended up taking so many preorders that we sold out our first batch of 200 silencers before they had even been made. The first year, we sold 750 Sparrows. Soon after, we developed and released our next product, the Osprey, a silencer for handguns.”

  A big hurdle for the company has been just getting the idea out there that suppressors are legal, helpful and attainable. They’re not taboo, they make shooting easier and safer. They’re aware that silencers have been villainized and distorted over decades of bad press, when in reality they’re just another tool in the shooting kit.

  Which is why the Salvo 12 is the most important suppressor ever made.”

Integrally Suppressed 10/22

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Great Lakes Tactical makes integrally suppressed 10/22 rifles that are a beautiful thing to (not) hear.

  As I mentioned earlier in the week, I had the chance to do some shooting with the guys at Great Lakes Tactical in Ohio.  In addition to the full auto Glock, they brought along one of their integrally suppressed 10/22 rifles.  This was a nice piece of hardware.

  The 10/22 I shot used a Green Mountain barrel with a sleeve over it.  The barrel was cut and when combined with the sleeve acted as a very effective sound suppressor.  The sleeve comes off easily for cleaning, and gives the rifle a nice bull barrel look.”

‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Gets First No. 1 Album On Billboard 200 with ‘Mandatory Fun’

 

 

 

 

 

” After more than 30 years on the charts, comedian-singer “Weird Al” Yankovic earns his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, as “Mandatory Fun” debuts atop the list. The album is the first comedy set to top the chart since 1963, and logs the largest sales week for a comedy album since 1994.
 
” Mandatory Fun” was released July 15 through Way Moby and RCA Records, and sold 104,000 copies in the week ending July 20, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It was promoted by a well-received daily viral video campaign that launched Monday, July 14. Starting with his parody of Pharrell’s “Happy,” Yankovic released eight music videos for the album through the week on various sites, like The Wall Street Journal, Yahoo, Nerdist, College Humor and YouTube.
 
” Mandatory” is the first comedy album to top the Billboard 200 since Allan Sherman’s “My Son, the Nut” spent eight weeks at No. 1 beginning on the chart dated Aug. 31, 1963. A couple of comedy sets came close since then, including Steve Martin’s No. 2-peaking “A Wild and Crazy Guy” back in 1978 and a pair of No. 2 Cheech & Chong titles in the early 1970s.”

Everyone Gets A Gun: NRA Commentator Talks ‘Gun Required’ Zones, Shooting Tests

 

 

 

” In a new video entitled “Everyone Gets a Gun,” NRA commentator Billy Johnson this week dishes on his view of guns and education in America, comparing the two and drawing on some startling comparisons and thought-provoking contrasts in our nation’s schools as balanced against gun laws.

  In the four-minute video, which begins with a disclaimer that Johnson’s commentary “does not necessarily” reflect the larger organization’s views, Johnson proposes that schools be mandated to introduce a curriculum that forces kids to learn shooting skills, as part of his tongue-in-cheek suggestion for “gun required zones.” “

Border Official Points Gun At Boy Scout

 

 

 

 

” A central Iowa Boy Scout troop just returned from a three-week trip they will likely never forget.

  About 10 days into the trip, an innocent action by one of the nearly two dozen Scouts at the Canadian border into Alaska set off a chain of events that lead to a U.S. border official pointing a gun at a scout’s head.

  Boy Scout Troop 111 Leader Jim Fox spelled out what happened to him and the Mid-Iowa Boy Scout Troop 111 as four van-loads of Scouts and adult volunteers tried to drive from Canada into Alaska.

  Fox said one of the Scouts took a picture of a border official, which spurred agents to detain everyone in that van and search them and their belongings. “

For Second Time, Rockets Found At UN School In Gaza

 

 

 

Hamas Rockets UN School

 

 

” For the second time in less than a week, rockets have been found in a school in Gaza operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, the body said.

“Today, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip,” the organization said in a statement issued Tuesday. “As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets. The school is situated between two other UNRWA schools that currently each accommodate 1,500 internally displaced persons.

As it did the last time around when missiles were found in a school it operates, UNRWA said it “strongly and unequivocally condemns the group or groups responsible for this flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law.” “

Obamacare Subsidies Illegal

 

 

 

” In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal.

  The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. The ruling relied on a close reading of the Affordable Care Act.”

Electorate Awakens: Obama Gas And Mortgage Groupie Now Says He Lied About Everything

    Everyone remembers this viral video of Florida mother Peggy Joseph voicing her unqualified support for Santa Obama , the candidate that will pay her mortgage and put gas in her car , but just in case you’ve forgotten just how enthusiastic the woman was here is the video again …

 

 

 

   Fast forward six years and Ms Joseph is whistling a different tune . Documentary filmmaker Joel Gilbert located Peggy as part of his latest project “There’s No Place Like Utopia” and here is what she has to say after six years of “Hope & Change”.

 

 

 

 

” Remember that South Florida woman who had her fifteen minutes of fame claiming Obama would pay for her mortgage and gas?

  Before the 2008 election, she was filmed saying “I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car, I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage. If I help him, he’s going to help me!”

  Well, documentary filmmaker Joel Gilbert tracked down Peggy Joseph to see how all that hope and change is working out for her and six years later, she’s had a complete change of heart. After living through Obama’s failed economic policies, she now says “he lied about everything.” “

Second Family Says Petersburg Police Went Too Far

 

 

 

 

 

 


” Another family has come forward claiming Petersburg Police came on their front porch and tried to stop them from shooting video of arrests happening right in front of their home.

  The family reached out to the On Your Side Investigators and shared dramatic cell phone video. The incident led to a violent confrontation.

  Cell phone video shows JaQuan Fisher, 17, standing on his own front porch recording the arrests happening on Rome Street. In the video, an officer is heard saying, “Unless you want me to take your phone from you,” before there is a struggle and video goes to black.

” I was right here. I pulled out my phone,” JaQuan said, pointing to where he was standing. 

  Petersburg Police had just busted several people at a home next door. They were handcuffing the suspects in front of Fisher’s home. He walked out onto the porch and his cousin—who was one of the people being arrested–yelled, “Start recording.” “

Girls Who Fart: Shayla Rivera Jokes About Girls Farting! – Stand Up Bits

 

 

 

 

Published on May 15, 2013

” Shayla Rivera jokes about farts. Get your daily dose of great Stand Up Comedy @ StandUpBits – PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL!

  Everyone farts, girls fart, guys fart, we all fart. Getting embarrassed about farting is common, but I don’t understand why. It is just a little bit of air that passes through, it’s not the end of the world…yes it does some times smell, but so does a lot of things like fish. However, it does tend to be a turn off when it’s a loud obnoxious fart, I have never heard of a hot girl farting (loudly) if so I think her hotness level may have gone down. Hot girl farting is kind of oxymoronic…but so is that idea because everyone does fart. Shayla Rivera tells some great jokes about girls farting, and girl farting, and she seems to be an expert on the subject. Girls farting is one area I don’t quite want to be familiar with, but I have never actually heard a girl fart. Guys fart all the time, and a lot of men actually take pride in how loud and obnoxious their fart is. I wonder if girl farts sound lovely, and smell delightful. Probably not, but girl farts can’t smell as bad as guy farts, or even my dog’s farts. There are so many girls who fart, well let me take that back, I know that every girls who fart seem to get embarrassed, I’m a guy who farts, and I get embarrassed. I don’t like smelling bad. I saw something crazy though, I saw girl farting videos, I don’t know why, but they were so embarrassing. Girl farting videos are very sad in my opinion, because that just shows now that we actually have videos about everything. I would love to see a girl fart and not get embarrassed, that would be a dream come true, because it means that she’s so comfortable in her own skin that she doesn’t care what others think. Anyways, for more jokes on girls farts, and girls fart, and any kind of fart info, please subscribe to StandUpBits! “
