Linda Feldman, Gun Control, and Obama’s “State of the Union Address”

Above: Carolyn McCarthy tries to figer out which end is up.

On January 26, 20011, Linda Feldman, from “The Christian Science Monitor,” wrote that Obama should have addressed the issue of gun control in the 2011 State of the Union Address. She contends that the expired “Assault Weapons Ban” needs to be reinstated. Along with NY Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy, (who doesn’t know the breech from the muzzle when it comes to guns and is writing a bill to ban high cap mags) I say she is a fool, who should spend some time researching what she is writing about.

MyReply:

Linda Feldman, either you are trying to stir the pot or you are clueless! Staff writer! Ah ha! Ha! I think your title is hilarious; only thing funnier could be “chief researcher!” Is idiocy contagious? And does CSM have a staff infection?

Do some research dunderhead! Duh! The 1994 Republican Party’s landslide election was largely attributed to Clinton’s gun ban. So let me try to grasp your thinking . . . Obama just jumped out of the fire and into the fryin’ pan during the midterm election, got burnt worse than Clinton in 1994, and now you expect him to jump back into the fire? Before he isn’t even re-elected? Yeah! I meant it just how it sounded!

As for the so called “assault weapons ban” you obviously didn’t read the specifics. The ban only applied to weapons manufactured after the date of the ban’s enactment. They didn’t, or couldn’t, nor wouldn’t go door to door and ask for everybody’s hi cap magazines. That’s a funny visual.

Go ahead; check it out on Wikipedia . . . its free even! A pistol grip, a muzzle brake, a telescoping stock, a detachable magazine, etc . . . . ; None of those things affect the operation of the weapon. All they do is make it look mean. The same damage could be done with an aesthetically pleasing lever or pump gun with a 10 round fixed tubular magazine.

P.S. Michael Bloomberg is an idiot with deep pockets! And MAIG (mayors against illegal guns), his pet project, is nothing more than an eminent front; they are a put on for political pandering! Just look at the attacks they make on “legal guns AND their OWNERS.” A gun is an inanimate object, the owner makes it illegal. So, it is the gun owner that needs to be held culpable, not the gun. Can you say “oxy-morons?”

And finally, like you, people perturb me when they don’t research both sides of the issue before running their mouths. IMHO, it makes you stupid and undeserving of the time I have spent to school you on your ignorance. That’s right! If you were dumb, you would have an excuse; but there is no excuse for ignorance! “A” is for apathy!

The Ostrich & Barack Obama

US ostrich head in sand

It seems Michelle Obama has some competition in regards to the man in her life. Whether or not Barack has mutual feelings is strictly speculative. Still there is no doubt that the main stream media is completely in love when it comes to their not so humble leader. Controlled by big money interests, the watchdog of our government has morphed into an ostrich, an ostrich that spends the majority of its time with its head buried in the sand. Here’s a link to the interview: 60 Minutes interview with CBS’s Steve Kroft. David Zurawik from the Baltimore Sun has spoken out in his article, below, about the flagrant complacency and lack of journalistic objectivity in the following editorial.

President Obama controls ’60 Minutes’ interview

By David Zurawik

President Barack Obama returned to the friendly confines of “60 Minutes” Sunday night, and while Steve Kroft asked some sound questions, he also let the president control the conversation, especially at the end.

I told myself, I was not going to write about the interview. I have written about Kroft and Obama together a lot, and while I praised Kroft and “60 Minutes” for the Obama interviews at first, I now think they are walking up to the line at which the broadcast is letting itself be used for political purposes.

At the end of last night’s conversation, the president decided to play media critic again and use 24-hour cable news channels as the foil for making himself look like the would-be champion of civility. Kroft set the president up on this theme, and then let him run straight into the end zone untouched — where the interview ended.

Here is the bite I am talking about at the end:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I will also say that in the era of 24-hour cable news cycles that the loudest, shrillest voices get the most attention. And so, one of the– things I’m trying to figure out is, you know, — how– how can we make sure that– civility is interesting. (LAUGHTER) And– and– and that– you know, hopefully, I will be a– good model for the fact that, you know– you don’t have to yell and holler– to– to make your point, and to be passionate about your position.

STEVE KROFT: So, your goal to bring civility back to Washington is still a work in progress?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It’s still a work in progress. No doubt about it.

Instead of ending the interview there with big smiles between the two as “60 Minutes” did, I would suggest that perhaps Kroft should have respectfully asked the president if he thought using the adverb “stupidly” at a press conference to describe the bahavior of the Cambridge (Mass.) police officer who took Harvard University Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. into custody was a good example of civility — particularly since the president acknowledged not having all the facts in the case at the time.

I ask commenters on this blog not to call other commenters or their words stupid because I think it is the antithesis of civility.

Kroft could have pointed out that the president often is a good role model of civility. But the question about him using the word “stupidly” to describe the actions of a police officer should have been asked rather than letting the president use one of the largest forums in American life, “60 Minutes,” to set himself up as the model of civility without any questions asked.

I wonder how the president would have responded. I wonder if it might not even have been what folks in Washington like to call a “teaching moment.”

We won’t move toward a more civil society until we acknowldge that we are all part of the problem. And it is point-the-finger-politician-too-simplistic–scapegoat-talk to blame it all on 24-hour cable TV news channels.

MSNBC has the Jonestown Kool-Aid Drinkers on TV

Huh! How funny! MSNBC has the Jonestown Kool-Aid Drinkers on TV. It is not that I think what happened in Jonestown, Guyana is funny; what is ironic, is that MSNBC aired the documentary, after using their position to sway the election. As the saying goes, they are “a day late and a dollar short;” and I believe they know that. My question is, are they looking for redemption for forcing the public to drink their brand of bug juice? It is just like the liberal scumbag media to play the ends against the middle, and then capitalize on the outcome. MSNBC gets my nomination for scum-bag-rag of the year! Even if it is a TV based news service. Their ratings must be down, now that they don’t have McCain and Palin to kick around; I know they lost my viewer-ship.

 

The Washington Post is groveling for the return of disenfranchised readers as well, after admitting they had been biased towards Obama in regards to election coverage. As a independent minded conservative who feels disenfranchised by their incongruous bias during the election, they can pucker up and kiss my ass if they want, but like a true elephant I won’t soon forget or forgive their misgivings. It is my firm belief, we as Americans, should leave these pandering turncoats fall like the styrofoam columns at the DNC. They have chosen to no longer represent our best interests; therefore why should we be concerned whether they sink or swim. Do I hear a call for a boycott of those media outlets who abused their loyalty to the general public in favor of an exclusive story?

Sadly, with the election of Obama, it is ever so evident that the people of the Obama Temple have become comfortable with the practice of demagoguery. For, Obama is the sort of political leader who gains power by appealing to people’s emotions, instincts, and prejudices in a way that is manipulative and dangerous; preying on the naiveté of the younger generation and the lack of insight of those who should know better but don’t, was Obama’s strategy to attract voters. We must remember that change is not necessarily always a good thing, especially when it administers the medicine of socialism, and government interference in our lives. Thomas Sowell, a distinguished authority on economics, once said “socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.” Obama’s, unquestioned flattery and praise, is evocative of another socialistic demagogue. Obama is just as mesmerizing as Jim Jones, who dazzled the members of the “Peoples Temple” in 1978 at a little place called Jonestown, Guyana; the revolution they experienced there was “revolutionary suicide.” Now that the Obamabots have drunk the “flavor aid,” spiked by this spellbinding “cult of personality,” the freedoms and protections we all cherish so much, may go the way of the 909 people who committed suicide with the cyanide laced grape drink; our liberties may be just like the spirit of those people, and the essence of the 276 children among them. The fundamental nature of our liberties may vanish into the thin air, just as the prototypical souls of those who deified the false idol of the “People’s Temple” 30 years ago. Socialism, at the national level, is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. In the end when all is equal, and socialism fails and the coffers are bare, who will the poor and misfortunate people lean on then?

For Certain, I Fully Appreciate The Suffering That Those Associated With The Jonestown Massacre Have Suffered; Nonetheless, MSNBC’s Rehashing Of The Incident Is Purely Motivated By Their Loss In Ratings, Due To Their Biased Election Coverage. Below is One Family’s Personal Account:

Patty told us that Jimmy Jones had told them that God had told him there was going to be a nuclear war and God wanted him to take his church and these folks in South Charleston and a few other churches to Ukiah in northern California. It was a little town down in a valley where they would be protected from fallout, and the people there would be the people God would start the world over with. It sounded good. I believe it was just a couple of months later that most of Jerry’s family ­ and of course Patty ­ packed up and moved to Ukiah.

Right away Patty wrote Mom and told her how happy they were and how nice it was where they were living. Then she let us know that we were not to send any Christmas gifts because Jimmy taught that they should all be equal, that no one should receive more than the other.

After they moved out there, many poor people became a part of this group and some of them lived in bad situations. Patty and Jerry were able to get their own place, though. Both of them had jobs and worked hard.

In the early 70’s I went into the ministry and began to hear troubling things about Jimmy Jones and this cult that my sister and her family got wrapped up in. My mother and my older sister both went out to visit them, and my mom actually lived out there for a while. They said it was a little weird, that the people treated Jimmy Jones as though he were God and that they heard him say he was the Christ. My brother also visited while he was in the service, but he didn’t seem to understand what was going on.

Jimmy Jones wrote my mother after she came home and tried to talk her into leaving our father and moving back out there. This was what God wanted her to do, Jimmy said. I remember reading that letter and pointing out to my mom how many times he mentioned his name ­ about 30 ­ to how many times he mentioned God’s name …­ once.

I wrote Patty a number of letters telling her what I was hearing, but she just said she was happier than she had ever been and it was not really any of my business.

I was preaching in Indiana at this time and then moved to a ministry in Louisiana. We had heard that Patty and her family were going to a South American country to help start a children’s home. And then there I was watching TV and they broke in and told what had happened and it was there that I heard the horrible news about my sister being killed on some airstrip and they showed this video of people on a wagon being pulled by a tractor shooting at people trying to board the plane. This of course is where my sister was killed as her youngest daughter Tracy stood next to her side. Tracy was not hurt ­ and we thank God for that ­ but she did spend several days in the jungle hiding with others.

My wife and I recently went out to Ukiah to visit Patty’s and our family. We found that they are still devastated by what had taken place in their lives 30 years ago. They never really had any closure since Patty’s funeral was held before her family got back to the States. Patty was a good person and full of love. I know she was a good mother but somehow this nut Jones really had her brainwashed at least until they got to Jonestown.

Obama: Gestapo Tactics

 

 

This should scare the hell out of every single American – Text of the e-mail the Obama campaign sent to supporters (via Chicagotribune.com):

In the next few hours, we have a crucial opportunity to fight one of the most cynical and offensive smears ever launched against Barack. 

Tonight, WGN radio is giving right-wing hatchet man Stanley Kurtz a forum to air his baseless, fear-mongering terrorist smears. He’s currently scheduled to spend a solid two-hour block from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. pushing lies, distortions, and manipulations about Barack and University of Illinois professor William Ayers.

Tell WGN that by providing Kurtz with airtime, they are legitimizing baseless attacks from a smear-merchant and lowering the standards of political discourse.

Call into the “Extension 720″ show with Milt Rosenberg at (312) 591-7200

(Show airs from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. tonight)Then report back on your call at http://my.barackobama.com/WGNstandards

Kurtz has been using his absurd TV appearances in an awkward and dishonest attempt to play the terrorism card. His current ploy is to embellish the relationship between Barack and Ayers.

Just last night on Fox News, Kurtz drastically exaggerated Barack’s connection with Ayers by claiming Ayers had recruited Barack to the board of the Annenberg Challenge. That is completely false and has been disproved in numerous press accounts.

It is absolutely unacceptable that WGN would give a slimy character assassin like Kurtz time for his divisive, destructive ranting on our public airwaves. At the very least, they should offer sane, honest rebuttal to every one of Kurtz’s lies.

Kurtz is scheduled to appear from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. in the Chicago market.

Calling will only take a minute, and it will make a huge difference if we nip this smear in the bud. Confront Kurtz tonight before this goes any further:

Please forward this email to everyone you know who can make a call tonight.

Keep fighting the good fight,

Obama: Storm Troopers

 

Project3

A St. Louis television station reports — their words — “The Barack Obama campaign is asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign.”

Prosecutors and sheriffs from across Missouri are joining “The Barack Obama Truth Squad.”

They mention Jennifer Joyce, St. Louis Circuit Attorney and Bob McCullough, prosecutor for St. Louis County in Missouri.

The reporter says, “They will be reminding voters that Barack Obama is a Christian who wants to cut taxes for anyone making less than $250,000 a year.”

While the report never quite comes out and says that anyone running an ad saying those things would be subject to prosecution, that certainly is the message implied. 

Not all things that are wrong are illegal. Saying that Barack Obama is a Muslim is wrong, but it does not warrant prosecution by the state.

I would cite Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism, but an angry mob just took my copy to their book-burning…

UPDATE: AIP responds:

Washington, DC – September 26, 2008 – Barack Obama is now using local law enforcement officials to carry out his campaign of legal intimidation by assembling a group of high-ranking Missouri police officials and prosecutors – including St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCullough and City of St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce – to identify and target anyone the campaign determines is producing “misleading” political advertisements.

“This is an outrageous and shocking attempt by the Obama campaign to again employ Stalinist, police state tactics against those who dare to disagree with Barack Obama,” said Ed Martin, American Issues Projects president.   “I am frankly stunned to see public officials like McCullough and Joyce abusing their official prosecutorial positions to serve as attack dogs for a national political campaign.  I am quite certain Missourians elected these individuals to enforce the laws and arrest criminals, not to throw people in jail for daring to practicing free speech.

“The Obama campaign continues to provide a chilling preview of what would happen to political freedom in an Obama administration.”

This new effort is only the most recent attempt by the Obama campaign to crack down on free speech.  Obama’s lawyers twice demanded the Department of Justice investigate and prosecute the American Issues Project, its officers, board of directors, and donors.  The campaign also threatened stations running American Issues Project’s ad in an unsuccessful attempt to compel them to pull the spot, and ran its own ad in response.

Pro Obama Community Organizer Group Involved in (More) Voter Fraud

acornA community organization, with longstanding ties to Barrack Obama, has, according to numerous reports, repeatedly run afoul of voter registration laws both locally and nationally. Just a few of the headlines in circulation: 

  • “Felony charges filed against 7 in Washington State’s biggest case of voter-registration fraud perpetuated by ACORN” 
  • “Hampton police last week charged Brittany Wyatt and Jessica Lemon, both 18-year-olds working for Community Voters Project, who live in Newport News, with one count of voter fraud” 
  • “Missouri ACORN Voter Fraud Scandal Makes the National News”  
  • “Voter fraud case traced to Defiance County registrations volunteer” 
  • “Pro-Obama Community Organizer Group Involved in (More) Voter Fraud” 
  • “The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) has been caught in another voter registration scandal, this time here in Milwaukee” 

Reports are circulating that the recent financial bailout includes a sizeable contribution to the thugs and heavily tax-subsidized fraudsters at ACORN. Under the original bailout proposal, apparently, a large portion of any repayment of the $700 billion would have gone to Barrack Obama’s good friends at ACORN. After being exposed in the national main stream media, legislators in congress have retracted any monies earmarked for ACORN. ACORN is currently is under investigation for its connection to a national voter fraud scam.

Obama’s “Truth Squad” Scares the Opposition by Threatening Lawsuits

Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

JEFFERSON CITY – Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

“This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.

“Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts – not a free society.”
