The AR-15 is America’s most popular sporting rifle, and it has been falsely mischaracterized as an “automatic” firearm and an “assault” weapon. It has been demonized as a monstrosity via the Sandy Hook shootings. Bans on it and other so-called “assault weapons” have been attempted from every possible angle.
And now that those measures have failed to accomplish total gun control, the Obama Administration, hungry to undermine the 2nd Amendment and restrict gun ownership, is using backdoor regulations through the BATFE to ban the sale, import and manufacture of the most affordable ammunition for the AR-15
It is clear that Obama’s “lame duck” years aren’t toothless soft power, but an opportunity for stealth attacks. Defied by Congress and much of the public, Obama has been emboldened in his actions knowing that there is little that can or will hold him accountable. … A president that is willing to use executive actions, executive orders and his trusty ‘pen and phone’ to make unilateral legislation is even more dangerous in making quiet actions little covered by the media and mostly noticed only by niche groups of citizens.
the age of executive actions and rule by agency
Obama dictates and his heavily armed agencies do. He says, “Legalize this hostile immigrant invasion,” and DHS does it. He says, “Disarm the citizens,” and BATFE does it. He says, “Nationalize healthcare,” and HHS, the IRS, and the U.S. Treasury Department make it so. Obama says, “I want the Internet,” and the FCC gives it to him. The legislative function of Congress is completely bypassed. “We’ve expanded my authorities,” El Presidente helpfully explains.
The fascists are out in the open now. It is breathtaking to watch this unfold, more so to see the lack of public reaction. This is how it happens, I guess. This will be the point in time that future generations point to and say, “There! That’s when they should have done something.”
At a time when Attorney General Holder himself has acknowledged the need for asset forfeiture reform, the authorization to take the property of American citizens should be shrinking, not expanding. A country that spoke itself into existence with assertions of the rights to life, liberty, and property can ill afford yet another government agency with the power to seize your property without so much as a criminal charge.
This is stupid on two levels.
1) First of all, shouldn’t every prospective presidential candidate understand the complete disaster that is Obamacare? How in the world is it not on his list of things to do? The American economy has the massive boot of Uncle Sam on its throat thanks to arguably the worst law in its short history but repealing it just isn’t on his to do list? Ugh.
2) It’s just bad politics. America hates Obamacare. The only reason a smarmy politician would have for not including it in their list of things to 86 is if they’re in favor of it. Don’t be naive. Most Republican politicians love Obamacare because it keeps getting them elected. They want to campaign against it and then do nothing about it. Trust me, if there were no Obamacare, the Democrats would still control both houses of Congress.
This means that Jeb is either clueless (because doesn’t know how bad the law is), out of touch (because he doesn’t know how much Americans hate Obamacare) or he’s a far-left progressive who is actually in favor of the federal government taking over 1/6th of the American economy.
If there were no harm associated with the “green” policies, then it would not matter, but people are actually being harmed right now by energy poverty. People in Germany are illegally cutting wood in the historic Black Forest, just to heat their homes and stay alive. People are being forced to decide between heat and food, due to the massive increases in energy prices in Ontario, so that we can pay 15x the market rate for wind electricity and be forced to pay the Americans to take our excess electricity. Meanwhile, the only true green energy in Canada; hydroelectric power, has to be shut down to keep from destabilizing the grid when the wind is blowing. That’s right, water is diverted from the turbines at Niagara Falls, so you can pay 15x the rate to subsidize big green. Don’t lie to yourself, those are not wind farms, they are not farming the wind, they are farming the subsidies and taking money out of your pocket by theft.
… Al Gore took exactly one science class in university, he got a D.
His professor in that class had a theory called global warming, Gore said that professor was his biggest influence on the subject. Later, that professor said that he was wrong and he apologized. Al Gore said his old professor was senile and should not be listened to any longer. Al Gore did study Divinity at Vanderbilt. He could have a clue on how to start a religion.
… how can you still believe in anthropogenic global warming when all the models have given FAILED predictions, every single time? When every catastrophic prediction since the 1980’s has come and gone without the climate armageddon promised. How long do you keep believing in this doomsday cult? If this offends you, and cannot be questioned, does that mean it is your religion?
… Is it possible that you have been lied to? When they give a stat like: 97% of all scientists agree, it sounds compelling. Isn’t it interesting how that study looked at 10,000 papers and out of those, only chose 70 something to claim a 97% consensus from?
… The Australian Ship of Fools was full of climate scientists & journalists who were going to Antarctica to document the melting since the Mawson Expedition of 1912. Once they got stuck in the ice, they magically became tourists, in the press. Remember how ice breaker ships got stuck trying to get them out? Mawson, yeah, he sailed right up to the land. The Ship of Fools was iced in 20km or more from land.
Where are their measurements and reports? That’s right, they didn’t publish them, because they didn’t find what they wanted to find.
A movie just out … indicates that the cultural tipping point has been reached. It is now safe and commercially profitable for moviemakers to mock belief in global warming
… The next stage will be when, to indicate a character’s gullibility, insanity or mental instability, it is mentioned that he once believed in global warming. Of course Hollywood does not have any moral scruples and mocking global warming is only a business decision. But mocking something is the first stage of destroying it and we should be duly thankful.
The weatherman continued predicting hot air, but only cold air was to be seen. Some in the public grumbled louder. So the climatologists contacted the state authorities. The governor and state legislature were brought in, as were educational, union, and business leaders. All begin promoting the climatologists’ message that the weatherman was right and the weather wrong. The president of the United States eventually came to the rescue with an official list of Science Deniers. He said that those who love Science should “go after” the deniers.
Which they did. And then everybody died of pneumonia.
NOAA and NASA will both announce this month that 2014 was the hottest year ever. These claims are absurd, and based on intentional deception.
The biggest problem is that they are ignoring the most accurate data sets, which come from satellites and show that 2014 was nowhere near as warm as several other years.
… the men and women on Law Enforcement and other government types should be shitting their pants.

While these three teenage girls willingly follow their dreams in the Middle East, some forty thousand unwilling underage victims of rape have received no justice for their ruined lives in Great Britain.
David Cameron expresses his ‘deep concern’ for these three volunteers, while underage white girls are still being groomed, raped and sexually abused in Rotherham to this day unhindered by him or the political class and their establishment.
The selective soundbites of concern for the three jihadi brides flows from the lips of the establishment like the tears of the raped and abused children of Rotherham.

Documents from Judicial Watch show that Hillary Clinton’s closest advisers knew from the onset, before she launched an inflammatory video lie, that Benghazi was a terrorist attack
It would be a lie Hillary Clinton would repeat to the parents of the Benghazi dead in front of their sons’ caskets when they arrived at Andrews AFB.
It would be repeated by U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on the Sunday talk show circuit and by President Obama no fewer than six times before the United Nations.
Shouldn’t he have learned that lesson before he entered into the Senate? Shouldn’t he have been able to look at law, logic, common sense and facts from the get-go?
Obviously not. He had to do some damage to the Republic before he wised up.
Sorry Rube. I don’t forgive you. Go home.
Verizon responded to the news in appropriate fashion, using morse code, the form of communication that the original 1934 law would have been regulating.
I am tired of giving people on the Left the benefit of the doubt. Is it not clear they do not mean well? Is it not clear they don’t want the same things as we? Is it not clear they do not wish to arrive at the same destination via a different path? These people are not on our side, and were I in Congress I would not call any member of the opposition party “My honorable friend” or “esteemed colleague.” Decorum be damned.
