    You forgot to label the policemen at the fence. They have guns too.

  2. Rick says:

    Yeah nick is right looks like 6 or more policemen there with guns.

    Many, many guns surround him…but HIS life is much more important than YOURS. His mission is not yet fulfilled.

    Too bad that I haven’t fully developed my seventh sense of mind control or else I would’ve made all of the evil gun possessors form a circle and save our country from the first Ripple family.

    Even more hypocritical than bleating, “Guns are scary” while he is surrounded by armed security agents is the President pretending that gun grabbing is about protecting people from guns. This is nothing more than the President disarming his most potent enemies – the law abiding American citizens.
    Now that, my friends, is hypocrisy on a nuclear scale.

  14. Bob Roberts says:

    For once, I agree with Rangel. Even a stopped clock is right once or twice a day, depending on what type it is.

    Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) on Thursday called it “embarrassing as hell” that President Barack Obama is facing charges that his White House lacks diversity.

    Wait a sec, no, he’s not right. It’s not embarrassing that Obama is “FACING charges”, it’s embarrassing that he’s MAKING charges about diversity issues when he’s so guilty OF EXACTLY THE SAME THING.


    Same goes for MSNBC

    MSNBC host and commentator Melissa Harris Perry surprisingly defended the lack of diversity in President Obama’s second term cabinet in an appearance on the network this morning.

    Harris Perry cites Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as an example, who she says doesn’t represent “the vast majority” of African-Americans.

    A very interesting couple of points here:

    1) USSC judges are not supposed to “represent” any particular racial or ethnic group, but liberals never got that particular memo and believe otherwise.

    2) As usual we see the naked double standard liberals apply – it’s only wrong if people they disagree with or dislike do it, not people they agree with or like.

    Speaking of embarrassment for Obama

    The biggest crowds ever for the annual March for Life protest are expected to hit Washington January 25 as hundreds of thousands attend the 40th anniversary rally to protest the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, according to organizers.

    The march, expected to attract tens of thousands more than the record 400,000 two years ago, could rival President Obama’s Inauguration Day crowd

    Global warming? yeahRITE!

    Worst snowstorm in 20 years shuts Jerusalem .

    I know, it’s just weather, just like everything lunatic moonbat liberals routinely blame on “global warming” or “climate change”.

    Obama ‘agenda to attack Second Amendment’.

    The NRA is a bit behind the curve here – this isn’t news. We knew Obama was going after guns when he personally planned FAST & FURIOUS with Holder.


    As liberals propose more gun control, Google searches on ‘Hitler gun control’ spike (Stalin too!)

    You know the obamunists have consistently given Biden the jobs they knew were going to fail/turn into disasters.

    Or so they’re claiming. They’re just the figureheads, the scapegoats.

    Oddly enough, the media is mostly silent on this one.

    At least two people were shot at Taft Union High School in Kern County on Thursday morning and the suspected shooter has been taken into custody, according to local media reports.

    23ABC News in Bakersfield said that the incident happened about 9 a.m. and that the suspect was taken into custody about 20 minutes later.

    The television station said it received phone calls from people hiding in closets inside the school, which was being evacuated and searched.

    Another source

    Two people were wounded Thursday in a school shooting in the city of Taft, according to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office.

    The shooting happened at Taft Union High School on the second floor of the school’s science building around 9 a.m. in Bakersfield.

    Taft police officers were first on the scene within a minute of the 911 call.

    According to Taft police, the 16-year-old shooter, who is a student at the high school, entered the campus with a 12-gauge shot gun and went to his first period science class.

    The suspect shot a male classmate, Bowe Cleveland, who officials believe was the intended target.

    The suspect then called out another student’s name and attempted to fire, but failed to hit the intended victim.

    The identity of the suspect was not released and authorities are trying to determine a motive in the attack.

    Students say the suspect was an outcast and often bullied. They said Cleveland, a popular 11th grader and athlete, took part in the bullying.

    Cleveland was airlifted with a gunshot wound to Kern Medical Center in Bakersfield for treatment. He is listed in critical, but stable condition, officials said.

    “I think he is going to make it, but he has more operations to undergo, but he is responding to our resuscitative efforts and I think we’re going to be able to pull him through this,” Dr. Ruby Skinner at Kern Medical Center said. “A very chilling situation. There’s flashbacks to Connecticut and all of the other tragedies that have occurred over the last year or so.”

  16. Bob Roberts says:

    Can the media disinterest possibly be related to the fact the shooter didn’t use an ‘assault rifle’?

    I mean, who’s going to get behind an attempt to ban shotguns?

  17. Bob Roberts says:

    & yeah the photo that tops this thread is missing AT LEAST 11 “gun” flags. 7 near top left corner, 4 near lower right corner.

    Please don’t let this go down the memory hole.

    In college, ERIC HOLDER was an ARMED TERRORIST, who stormed a student lounge at Columbia University and took it over.

  19. TED says:


    When hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast, even houses of worship were not spared.

    A local television station interviewed a black woman from New Jersey and asked how the loss of churches in the area would affect their lives.

    Without hesitation, the woman replied, “I don’t know ’bout all those other people, but we ain’t gone to Churches in years. We gets our chicken from Popeye’s.

    “They live among us, AND THEY VOTE.
    Now, do you understand how we got the lousy president we have?

    @Bloodless Coup who says,

    In college, ERIC HOLDER was an ARMED TERRORIST, who stormed a student lounge at Columbia University and took it over.

    AND..don’t buy into any liberal that tries to tell you that Holder was just a kid back then and has grown up and evolved out of his radical views. I know people who in the sixties wanted/tried to start a New Democratic Party on the high school campus. Now they were not terrorizing type but they still have their main, immature, teenage idealogy that pushes all things ‘community’ or ‘redistribution of wealth’ or ‘lollipops and sugar blossoms make up the universe’ or ‘we know better what is better for the minions’ …..the point is they have not walked away from their dabblings, they have solidified them, grown them, learned to articulate them, and are now confident in them. Just saying.

    Once they get their “assault” rifle ban, they’ll go for the next slice of the salami.

    I’ll give up my gun when the secret service gives up theirs. After all, once all the guns are removed from society, the presidope won’t need all that protection.

    Obama Opposed Gun Ban Exception to Defend One’s Home

    As a state senator in Illinois, President Obama opposed legislation providing an exception to handgun restrictions if the weapon was used in the defense of one’s home.

    Obama’s vote would have maintained the status quo, which made it a violation of municipal gun ban law to use a firearm to save your own life in your own home. But the bill was passed anyway without his support.

    The vote is a sign of how committed Obama may be to strict gun control measures.

    Obama Signs Bill Giving Him Armed Protection For Life – While simultaneously launching effort to disarm the American people

    Despite launching a gun control agenda that threatens to disarm the American people, President Obama has signed a bill that would afford him armed Secret Service protection for life.

    The irony of Obama seeking to surround himself with armed men for the rest of his life while simultaneously working to disarm the American people via a gun control agenda that is likely to be enforced via executive decree represents the height of hypocrisy.
    But it’s not the first time that Obama has lauded the notion of responsible Americans using firearms to protect himself and his family while concurrently eviscerating that very same right for the American people.
    During an ABC Nightline interview broadcast on December 26 yet recorded before the Sandy Hook shooting, Obama said one of the benefits of his re-election was the ability “to have men with guns around at all times,” in order to protect his daughters.

    In addition, the school attended by Obama’s daughters in Washington D.C. has no less than 11 armed security guards on duty at all times, yet the idea of arming teachers and school officials to prevent school massacres has been dismissed by gun control advocates who want school campuses to remain “gun free zones” where victims are disarmed and shooters are free to carry out their rampage unimpeded.
    The hypocrisy of gun control advocates who feverishly work to create victim disarmament yet surround themselves with armed men is rampant amongst the political class.
    As we reported last month, despite in the same year calling for “Mr. and Mrs. America” to “turn in” their guns California Senator Dianne Feinstein, author of a draconian bill set to be introduced later this month that would treat gun owners like sex offenders, admitted to carrying a concealed weapon for her own protection.

    Other prominent gun control advocates such as Mayor Michael Bloomberg have also aggressively pushed to disarm Americans while themselves employing armed bodyguards at all times.
    Michael Moore, another vehement proponent for gun control, also has armed bodyguards, one of whom was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon at New York’s JFK airport back in 2005.
    A White House petition created at the end of last month calls for making the White House and all federal buildings gun free zones. “If the government believes gun free zones are a solution for citizens, the same standard should apply to government servants and employees,” states the petition, which currently has over 12,000 signatures.

    New threat of Iranian-backed kidnappings of diplomats, religious leaders, officials warn

    Meanwhile, despite all the “global warming” that actual observations show is not happening, CA is facing record cold.

    California authorities on Friday reopened a 40-mile stretch of a major highway north of Los Angeles – some 17 hours after snow shut the route and forced hundreds of truckers to spend the cold night in their rigs.

    I don’t remember this happening in my lifetime. The spot involved is not that high altitude. Plus I-8 to the east of here had snow as well yesterday, though I did not hear if they closed it briefly or not.

    Morning temperatures fell into the 20s and 30s in many areas, and much lower in the mountains. A low of 12 degrees was recorded in the Big Bear mountain resort east of Los Angeles.

    Strawberry growers covered their crops, while San Diego zookeepers turned on heaters for the chimpanzees.

    In Sonoma County, homeless shelters started handing out extra warm clothes to protect the least fortunate from below-freezing overnight temperatures.

    Central Valley citrus growers braced for three days of sub-freezing temperatures. In Modesto, temperatures dipped into the 20s early Friday, several degrees colder than usual for this time of year.

    Napa, in wine country, and Sacramento, farther north, both recorded 27.

    High temperatures in the Central Valley over the weekend were forecast for 50 degrees, 3 degrees lower than normal for mid-January, according to the National Weather Service.

    In the south, forecasters warned that a low pressure trough sinking over San Diego County and parts of neighboring Orange County could keep nightly temperatures below the freezing point in coastal areas, the low deserts and inland valleys, threatening orange and avocado orchards and other sensitive plants. The coldest nights were expected to hit Friday and Saturday.

    I too love my Moonbattery T-shirt! If anyone sees a sweet, very cute, petite young girl wearing a Moonbattery T-shirt around Phoenix – well, that’s not me – it’s my daughter. She loved the shirt so much that I gave it to her. Now I have to work real hard to try to win another one for me. Tomorrow’s caption contest day. Yay!

    Wyoming Lawmakers Propose ‘Gun Protection’ Legislation

    Several Wyoming lawmakers are proposing legislation designed to protect gun-owners from any potential federal firearm ban. The “Firearms Protection Act” bill, introduced this week, would make any federal law banning semi-automatic firearms or limiting the size of gun magazines unenforceable within the state’s boundaries.

    Moonbat caught working two different six figure public jobs at same time.

    “We didn’t know that he was working at Detroit water and sewer,” Brown said this morning. “We figured that out yesterday when you called. That’s the long and the short of it.”

    Jones was paid $135,000 a year by Flint and receives another $138,750 from the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department. His combined public pay topped that of members of Congress, senators, Supreme Court justices and even Vice President Joe Biden.
