    So I suppose it’s private security that has been buying up the guns in the last 20 years

    Obama is on his double secret spring break and the press is being kept in the dark by the “Most transparent administration ever!”

    W.H. press corps: ‘Extreme frustration’ over ‘having absolutely no access’ to Obama.

    The White House press corps is expressing frustration over its lack of access this weekend to President Obama, who was on a golfing vacation in Florida.

    Ed Henry, the Fox News correspondent and president of the White House Correspondents Association, released a statement Sunday evening in which he said the press corps had been given no access to the president, who was joined on his outing by star golfer Tiger Woods, and that the WHCA would fight for greater transparency in the days ahead.

    “Speaking on behalf of the White House Correspondents Association, I can say a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and TV have today expressed extreme frustration to me about having absolutely no access to the President of the United States this entire weekend,” Henry said in a statement, relayed in a White House pool report. “There is a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today and in the days ahead: transparency.”

    The White House responded to Henry’s complaint in a statement from Principal Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest, also included in the pool report.

    “The press access granted by the White House today is entirely consistent with the press access offered for previous presidential golf outings, absolutely none – and you will recall how the press made such a big deal out of George W. Bush and his golfing, so much that he quickly stopped going golfing.”

    I added that last little bit at the end, of course. See the source for where his remarks stop and mine begin.

  8. Highway Hospital Student says:

    Sen. Ed Murray, D-Seattle, got caught trying to slip through a bill that permits home inspections by police if you own an “assault” weapon.

    “In order to continue to possess an assault weapon that was legally possessed on the effective date of this section, the person possessing shall … safely and securely store the assault weapon. The sheriff of the county may, no more than once per year, conduct an inspection to ensure compliance with this subsection.”

    Failure to comply can get you a year in jail.

    Yes, when liberals start their donkey-bray laughs at the 2nd amendment provision for citizens to arm themselves against totalitarian government, pull the Murray article out of your wallet and cram it down their worthless, nazi throats.

    And wasn’t a mistake.. Murray is a dedicated Marxist, fascist liberal scumbag who put the provision in his own bill and tried to slip it by. Which he probably would have done had he been smart enough to draft a bill longer than 8 pages —which was apparently just at the page limit for someone ambitious enough to read the damn thing.

    Bit by bit by bit. Liberals will never quit.

    So… how is gun control working out in Chicago?

    Teen killed hours after sister heard Obama’s speech

    Two people are being questioned in the shooting death of a Janay McFarlane, who was shot to death in North Chicago hours after her little sister sat just feet away as President Barack Obama spoke in Chicago Friday about the violence plaguing the nation.

    That bad, huh? More proof gun CONTROL only works on law-abiding people, leaving criminals with the upper hand.

    McFarlane was shot once in the head around 11:30 p.m. in an alley in the 1300 block of Jackson Street in the far north suburb, Lake County Coroner Thomas Rudd said.

    So what was she doing there at that time of night?

    Apparently she thought it was ‘show and tell’ day at the school.

    Police say a mother who got on stage and started to strip during an upstate New York school assembly is facing child endangerment and lewdness charges.
    Albany police say 24-year-old Aydrea Meaders was arrested at North Albany Academy on Friday morning.

    Crazy eyes, and you’ll never guess her race/ethnicity.

    Gun dealers report shortages of ammunition

    Retailers say much of the demand is from gun owners who are stockpiling in case certain weapons are banned.

    This can’t have anything to do with it, can it?

    The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase a further 21.6 million rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already obtained over the course of the last 10 months alone, figures which have stoked concerns that the federal agency is preparing to deal violently with civil unrest.

    The solicitation asks for 10 million pistol cartridge .40 caliber 165 Grain, jacketed Hollow point bullets (100 quantities of 100,000 rounds) and 10 million 9mm 115 grain jacketed hollow point bullets (100 quantities of 100,000 rounds).
    The document also lists a requirement for 1.6 million pistol cartridge 9mm ball bullets (40 quantities of 40,000 rounds).
    An approximation of how many rounds of ammunition the DHS has now secured over the last 10 months stands at around 1.625 billion. In March 2012, ATK announced that they had agreed to provide the DHS with a maximum of 450 million bullets over four years, a story that prompted questions about why the feds were buying ammunition in such large quantities. In September last year, the federal agency purchased a further 200 million bullets.
    To put that in perspective, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month. Extrapolating the figures, the DHS has purchased enough bullets over the last 10 months to wage a full scale war for almost 30 years.

    Leave it to those protesting “global warming” to choose the coldest day with wind chill down to 15°F.

    They’re still trying to ensure we’re dependent on tenuous energy supplies from people who hate us and are using the dollars we send them for energy against us.

    All in the name of “global warming”.

  11. IslandLifer says:

    Bob, they can’t get the guns so they control the ammunition.

  12. Bob Roberts says:

    Actually, we already have this ‘sixth sense’.

    It’s called our sense of heat – we already sense heat with our skin, through receptors in our skin.

    The Goreacle Shares His Wisdom

    Albert Arnold “Al” Gore, Jr. would have made a splendiferous president had he not managed to lodge his head up where the sun don’t shine and had he not been Albert Arnold “Al” Gore, Jr.
    The Goreacle, having escaped charges that he groped, propositioned, and exposed himself to a middle-aged masseuse in Portland in 2006 after famously lodging a public liplock on then-wife Tipper Gore, still cashed in mightily with his farcical “An Inconvenient Truth” and scored big time again this January with the sale of his Current TV channel that no one watched to the Al Jazeera network following an abortive effort to launch an IPO that no one offered to buy.

    He later told Charlie Rose that the Muslim-owned Al Jazeera is “respected” and “tells it like it is,” unlike the “propaganda” we see on the Fox News Channel.

    That all goes to show you that someone can fool a lot of the people anytime and that any fool can sell his soul for a paltry $100,000,000 at least one time.

    The Goreacle, whose academic transcripts from the elite St. Albans High School, Harvard, and Vanderbilt University’s divinity and law schools make George W. Bush seem almost a scholar and his science grades make Bush seem almost a genius, nevertheless likes to hold forth on climate science as if he knows what he’s talking about.

    That all goes to show you that even an ignoramus can run for president, become a billionaire, and pose as a knowledgeable scientist.

    In one more classic demonstration of overachieving chutzpa, Gore appeared on Ellen Degeneris’ talk show where he expounded on his favorite money-making scam of global warming/global cooling/climate change and made the insightful observation long known to fourth graders that ”It turns out plants need sunlight,” to which Ellen replied with her patented smile, “Yes,” as if she too had just learned a grade school fact of vegetative life.

    The Goreacle did share with Ellen and her audience an interesting but very little known Obama government scheme to save Mother Earth from the alleged scourge of global warming. (We can forget for the nonce that phony climatologists were warning of the scourge of a new ice age a mere 30 years ago and finally settled on the catchphrase “climate change” after Mother Earth kept changing as she has done for eons.) . . .

    North Chicago is not Chicago — it is a whole separate town/city, and is not even in the same county as Chicago (although much of the area between the two is a somewhat indistinguishable semi-urban Chicago-style sprawl). North Chicago is home to Great Lakes Naval Training Center. To say that North Chicago is Chicago would be like saying that Mirimar NAS is San Diego.

    I lived in North Chicago for a time (dad’s last tour of duty was as Commander of the Gunnery School, Great Lakes NTC), attended high school there my Junior year, and can attest that North Chicago was/is a terrible place. Jackson Street is in the middle of Negro-ville (or at least it was at that time, and I don’t expect that anything has changed). No place for a white boy like me.

    A review of current news articles will show that the violence in Chicago today is mostly on the south side of Chicago. A review of a demographics map will plainly show who lives on the south side — primarily blacks. Once again, no place for a white boy like me.

    It’s not the guns that are the problem — it’s the people who have the guns that are the problem, or more correctly the culture of the people who have the guns. In this case, black culture. The real solution, therefore, would be to take the guns away from black people, but I don’t expect that the Soetoro administration will be going down this road anytime soon. . . .

    I think they plan on massacring whole towns or cities where unrest starts as part and parcel of showing anyone else what will happen when you get froggy with daddy government. Just an opinion though.

  22. So totally off topic of saving the country and stuff….or is it? If it Patriots we save? It IS Open Thread so . .

    Can you save a life today? How many if the odds are supposed to be 1 in ten?

  23. Bob Roberts says:

    They don’t care who they inconvenience.

    Authorities say Kanye West and Kim Kardashian had to be privately screened after an airline employee allowed them to bypass a security checkpoint at New York’s Kennedy International Airport.
    Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein says the celebrity couple had arrived at the airport on an international flight on Tuesday.
    She says after clearing customs and baggage, they were escorted by an airline employee “through a non-public area in order to provide expedited access to their domestic flight.”
    Farbstein says this violated security protocols by bypassing the TSA checkpoint. She says that prompted TSA officials to conduct the private screening.
    The rapper and reality TV star were eventually cleared to board their flight, which departed after about a 50-minute delay.

    Obama is on his double secret spring break and the press is being kept in the dark by the “Most transparent administration ever!”

    Dear Leader has to have some alone time. Just because the press constantly sucks up to President YDBT, doesn’t mean he doesn’t need to show them their place from time to time.

    Bo is treated with more respect. Probably because if they abuse him too much, he will express his displeasure by peeing on something/someone.

    Time for teenage mother to face the consequences for her actions. No state aid. No federal aid. If she wants to keep and raise her child, she needs to start looking for a job.

    (BTW…..plenty of loving parents out there looking to adopt….just saying that abortion isn’t the answer, either).
