What is “Sensible Gun Control Legislation?”

Posted by V the K at 12:08 pm - October 2, 2015.
Filed under: Gun Control

Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Martin O’Malley all agree.

“We need sensible gun-control legislation which prevents guns from being used by people who should not have them.”

But just what do advocates of  “sensible gun control” mean by “sensible gun control?”

Is it San Francisco and Chicago-style gun control, where gun shops are de facto illegal in the city and all purchases must be made illegally?

Is it DC-style gun control, where permits are all but impossible to acquire and a man was recently prosecuted for possession of a spent shotgun shell casing and antique replica musket balls?

Is it New Jersey-style gun control, where people have been sent to prison merely for transporting their weapons from one home to another in the course of moving?

Is it New York style gun control, where a man’s guns were confiscated when he sought treatment for insomnia?

Is it “Universal Background Checks” that make it a felony to loan a buddy your hunting rifle, or for a father to purchase a gun for his daughter when she is being stalked by an ex-boyfriend?

Does it mean outlawing certain models of guns on the basis of cosmetic characteristics unrelated to lethality, as has been done in New York, California, Maryland, Connecticut and elsewhere?

Please explain exactly what sort of “sensible gun control” you support, and cite examples.

Americans Need Not Apply

According to Zero Hedge, for every job that went to a native-born American in 2007, three jobs went to foreign and immigrant workers. And it gets worse from there.

With that out of the way, here is the punchline (which is likely related). While we “know” that a paltry 142K jobs were added according to the Establishment survey, a far more disturbing trend emerges when observing the Household survey, which conveniently breakdown down the number of “native-born” and “foreign-born” workers. In September, the latter rose by 14,000 to 24,928.

That was the good news. The bad news: native-born workers saw their ranks tumble by 262,000!

The US Chamber of Commerce — which wants to replace even more American workers with cheap foreign labor — is fixin’ to spend $100 Million to defeat those who oppose this agenda.

After budgeting $50 million to elect establishment-friendly candidates in the 2014 election cycle, the chamber will reportedly spend as much as $100 million in the 2016 election cycle to crush conservatives. According to a Roll Callreport, some of the group’s “top targets in 2016 will be right-wing, tea party candidates” who have opposed amnesty for illegal immigrants, Obamatrade, and reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank.

The Chamber of Commerce’s ultimate goal is to reportedly win back “the soul of the Republican Party” by electing more establishment Republicans “in contested primaries to strengthen their hand during policy debates on the Hill.”’

When the CoC says “Jump,” the GOP Leadership says, “Yes, sir, lead us to the cliff.”

I saw a headline on a morning newspaper (Dayton Daily News, FWIW), Motive Still Unclear in Oregon Shooting. I knew immediately that the motive was absolutely clear but inconvenient to the leftist narrative.


Anastasia Boylan was in a classroom on her fourth day studying at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg when Chris Harper-Mercer entered and shot her professor dead point-blank.

She told her family that he told his victims to stand up and declare their religion, before telling them: ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second.’

Bill Maher must be a very happy man today.

This idea that everybody on the left is plotting against Christianity and wants to wipe out religion is offensive… to me! Because I’m the only media figure on a show week in and week out that says that! And I’ll be damned if the credit’s going to go to the entire left when I’m doing all the heavy lifting!

Read the comments in the piece to get an idea of how pervasive the hatred of Christians is on the left.

The POTUS would like to see all of America turned into a “Gun Free Zone,” or at least enact the same “Common Sense Gun Laws” that have made Chicago an island of peace and tranquility.

Quote of the Day

Found this over in the comments at NRO.

“The West is being outmanoeuvred by a decaying has-been superpower as it forms an axis with a pipsqueak dictator and a clutch of turban-wearing fanatics with delusions of apocalyptic grandeur. With that kind of epic failure as his benchmark, it’s a wonder that Obama can get out of bed in the morning without getting hopelessly trapped in the eiderdown.”

Indeed, this is the mark of a very weak and dimwitted president to let this come to pass. There are those who say, “Who cares? Let’s just get out of the Middle East entirely.”

Somewhere between George W. Bush’s futile and wasteful expenditure of blood and treasure trying to bring the Enlightenment to a region with no interest in it and Barack Obama’s policy of throwing allies to the wolves and arming adversaries with nukes and stimulus money is a sane foreign policy based strictly on American interests. I am not convinced that having a Russian-Iranian axis in control of the world’s oil supply is in the American interest.

Hillary Maybe Isn’t So Smart

Posted by V the K at 10:29 am - September 30, 2015.
Filed under: Hillary Clinton

In the new book, Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary, Edward Klein claims that Bill Clinton once pushed Hillary to hire Steven Spielberg to help make her more appealing. The book is intended as a hit-piece on the Clintons, which doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not accurate. It is intended to portray Hillary as callous, unsympathetic, and downright unlikeable.

She also doesn’t come across as very smart.

In an excerpt from his book in the New York Post, Klein reports that Hillary reluctantly agreed to the sessions. “I get $250,000 to give a speech . . . and these Hollywood jackasses are going to tell me how to do it!” she reportedly said.

Hillary doesn’t seem to realize that her supporters were not paying her $250,000 per speech because of her penetrating insight or soaring oratorical skills. They were buying access and influence.

In any case, the sessions apparently went over… not so good.

“I decided I had enough with the camera and the recordings and the coaches,” Hillary allegedly said. “I got so angry I knocked the f- -king camera off its tripod. That was the end of my Stanislavski period.”

As the author correctly points out, Stanislavski taught stage acting, not acting for the camera. Someone of Hillary’s alleged intelligence should be aware of this. Hell, *I* was aware of this.

Hillary’s supporters think she is the smartest woman in the world, or, possibly the second smartest after Michelle Obama. They excuse … no, embrace… her reputation for being a rhymes-with-witch because she’s a rhymes-with-witch that gets things done;  a rhymes-with-witch who has earned the right to be a rhymes-with-witch by fighting her way to the top of her profession in a male-dominated culture; like Meryl Streep’s character in The Devil Wears Prada.

But really, Hillary seems to be closer to Meryl Streep’s character in Death Becomes Her; a shallow, venal, not-so-bright woman who owes what she has to the talent of her husband. (more…)

International Geopolitics Abhors a Vacuum

Posted by V the K at 11:24 pm - September 29, 2015.
Filed under: War On Terror

Russia is setting up shop in Syria, deploying a massive amount of military power in support of the Assad Regime. This places Russia in position to be the power broker in the Middle East, filling the vacuum created by America’s weakness and retreat under Obama. Syria stands to become the base from which Russia expands its security arrangements and becomes the dominant power on the Arabian Peninsula. He’s also proposing a coalition of military power to take on ISIS, and openly questioning Obama’s policies that have turned Libya, Syria, Iraq, and Yemen into dumpster fires.

“Instead of the triumph of democracy and progress, we got violence, poverty and social disaster — and nobody cares a bit about human rights, including the right to life,” Putin said through a translator. “I cannot help asking those who have forced that situation: Do you realize what you have done?”

Meanwhile, Barack Obama, whose “Hashtag Diplomacy” was so effective in taking down Boko Haram and getting Russia out of Ukraine (/sarc), has his own strategy for defeating ISIS. It involves consulting with Hollywood to figure out how to make catchy videos to counter ISIS propaganda and turn them away from violent genocide. I am not making this up.

The Obama administration is turning to HBO, Snapchat, and a controversial, Oscar-winning screenwriter to help them fight ISIS.

Earlier this year, the State Department convened a group of friends in the U.S. film industry, social media, and premium cable TV to brainstorm ways to counter jihadist propaganda.

The administration claimed Benghazi was caused by a YouTube video. They now think ISIS can be defeated by YouTube videos. I think they vastly overestimate YouTube’s influence.

Either that, or they simply are not serious people.

Vladimir Putin, whatever else he may be, is a serious man.

You don’t have to be a supporter of Putin’s domestic to recognize that he is successfully expanding Russia’s influence and strengthening his country’s global position, while Obama has thoroughly squandered American prestige, abandoned allies, embraced our enemies, and reduced American influence to third-rate status.

Michael Sam Cannot Accept That He Just Isn’t As Good As People Who Don’t Like Football Think He Is

Michael Sam is claiming the only reason he doesn’t play in the NFL is because of the gay thing. (Because, remember how he got absolutely no support from anyone when he tried out for the NFL? Remember how brave and courageous nobody said he was?)

Cut. Jib. Newsletter. has a riposte.

I wonder whether Sam realizes that NFL teams gleefully employ murderers, strong-arm robbers, drug dealers, drunk drivers, wife beaters (did I miss anything?) and other assorted delights. In fact, the only thing they don’t like is the conservative and religious values of Tim Tebow! If Michael Sam were good enough to play in the NFL, he would be playing in the NFL. That he couldn’t cut it in the Canadian Football League is a powerful argument that he just isn’t good enough! After all, Canada is an enlightened, modern country, without America’s irrational hatred of homosexuals.

Climate Change Rally Falls a Little Short


ManBearPig may not be the winning issue progressive Democrats think it is.

The faith-based climate rally that took place Thursday in Washington drew a much smaller crowd than anticipated, though organizers say they still managed to convey their message. The Moral Action on Climate Justice network, which worked with the Earth Day Network, League of Conservation Voters, Sierra Club. Friends of of the Earth and other groups to organize the event, originally asked the National Park Service for a permit for 50,000 attendees. But Park Service countered the permit should be closer to 200,000, organizers said, given the popularity of Pope Francis. In the end, according to several observers, the overall attendance was closer to 2,000.

Think Progress — which is published by the liberal think tank Center for American Progress — estimated there were “hundreds of activists” on the Mall for the event, which started early Friday.

The Moral Relativism of the Left Is Rotting Out Our Military

Posted by V the K at 1:08 pm - September 28, 2015.
Filed under: Hatred of the Military

Obama has done great damage to our military, reducing its size dramatically, cutting back on procurement and forcing them to use aging equipment, and leading it to demoralizing defeats in Iraq and Afghanistan. But, as Kurt Schlichter argues in the Federalist, the worst damage that’s being wrought on our military is the moral rot of leftist relativism.

The problems with America’s military—which has now failed to win three wars in a row against backward fanatics whom the nineteenth-century Brits would have handily dispatched to hell in time for tea—are not merely budgetary. You can’t buy real leaders, leaders with strategic competence and moral courage. Aging equipment, while a problem, is nothing compared to the incompetence and moral cowardice of our military’s senior leaders.

He rightly notes that this rot didn’t begin with Obama’s presidency, but it has broadly metastasized. Our troops were not just handcuffed by highly restrictive Rules of Engagement in Afghanistan that have led to many, many unnecessary American deaths, but utterly shackled in dealing with Afghanistan’s culture of child rape. The senior staff of the military forces (career bureaucrats) decided on a semi-official policy of “See no evil, Hear no evil, speak no evil,” and put troops on the ground in the wretched position of either tolerating child-rape or sacrificing their military career.

So, if the captain acts according to Army values and puts a stop to the child rape, he’s wrong. If he does nothing, and later some congressman or reporter asks the general why his troops aren’t stopping child rapes, the captain is going to be wrong again. If you think the general is going to say, “Oh, the captain as just following my order to allow child rapes occurring in front of him to continue,” you are delusional.

Do you want to lose wars? Because this is how you lose wars.

We have the greatest troops in the world, probably in all of human history. Fighting with old, worn equipment is a challenge, but that can be overcome. The lack of competent, morally courageous senior leaders can’t be.

Sending the Wrong Message

Posted by V the K at 6:01 am - September 28, 2015.
Filed under: Gay Culture

That kid from ‘Who’s the Boss’ who surprised no one by coming out as gay has just come out as HIV positive, and now he wants to be “a beacon of light” to other gay people.

“It was terrifying, and there was a sense of relief,” he says. “It’s backwards. You’ve spent so much time terrified that you’re going to get it, and then you have it. You don’t have to be terrified anymore.”

“What I want my community to realize is we need to take better care of ourselves,” he says.

And what message is he going to be conveying? “Don’t be an idiot like me who used crystal meth and got infected with HIV through promiscuous unprotected sex?” Or, “If you use crystal meth and get HIV through unprotected anonymous sex, the LGBT Community will make you a hero and praise you for having the exquisite courage of a butterfly flying against the wind?”

John Boehner Admits the Republican Party Is Useless

Weepy, ineffectual Speaker of the House went on Face the Nation this morning to trash Conservatives in his own party. (Criticize Democrats? Of course not.)

Boehner ticked off the biggest legislative victories he had in the House ‘all voted against by my most conservative members’ because, as the Speaker put it, the bills weren’t ‘good enough.’

‘Really? This is the part that I really don’t understand,’ he said, shaking his head.

Continuing the tirade against the right flank of his party Boehner said, ‘absolutely they’re unrealistic,’

The problem is not that the Conservative Wing of the party is demanding perfection; the problem is that the conservative wing is getting nothing. There has not been a single piece of Conservative Legislation passed by Congress and signed into law since the 1996 Welfare Reform Act.  Even during the period 2003 – 2007, when Republicans held the House, the Senate, and the Presidency, no substantive conservative legislation was passed. Under George W Bush, plenty of Progressive Legislation was passed… No Child Left Behind, the creation of the TSA, McCain-Feingold, the Sarbanes-Oxley Financial Regulations, and the Prescription Drug Entitlement, to name but a few.  The only thing remotely conservative passed in the Bush years were some modest, temporary tax cuts; but even these were essentially progressive in that they did not substantially reform the tax code.  Meanwhile, the Bush Administration lavished spending on the Federal bureaucracy, with all Departments receiving massive increases in their budgets.

The Republican leadership thought they could appease the Conservative base with symbolic, meaningless votes against Obamacare and endless hearings on the Obama scandals (Fast and Furious, IRS Targeting, NSA Domestic Spying, Benghazi, Hillary’s Emails, and now Planned Parenthood) that were just for show and accomplished absolutely nothing substantive. How long did Boehner and Company think they were going to keep the right satisfied with meaningless show votes and waste-of-time investigations?

Boehner and the Establishment complain about an unwillingness to “compromise,” an unwillingness to “work together.” But the fact of the matter is, compromise in Washington means promoting the progressive Democrat agenda. Boehner has done so, fully funding Obamacare, Fully funding Obamamnesty, and twisting arms to pass Obamatrade.

Granted, Obama and the Democrats are an iron wall, unwilling to compromise on anything in their agenda. Granted, the Senate Democrats filibuster all House legislation that doesn’t support their agenda, and Obama will veto anything that doesn’t give him exactly what he wants. But part of the job of an opposition party is to make the case why the dominant party is wrong. That is where the Republicans are failing the most.

Take Executive Amnesty, for example. The Republican Congress not only fully funds it, but only offers a weak, procedural argument against it that “the president is abusing his authority.” First of all, the Congress should not be funding unconstitutional acts of the president. But second, whining about process just sounds like you’re whining about process. If you want the public on your side against Executive Amnesty, you don’t just whine that the president isn’t playing by the rules. You go to the people and you tell them why the president is wrong. Illegal immigration is hurting people’s communities by taking resources away from schools and infrastructure. Illegal immigration is hurting the middle class by taking jobs and driving down wages. Make a case that people can relate to, don’t just argue like law school professors in a faculty lounge.

If Republicans are just going to go to Washington, and then whine that they can’t do anything but go along with the Democrat agenda, what is the point of the Republican Party?

A Transgender Activist in San Francisco is marketing child-sized dildos to “transgender” children; to create the illusion that there is a “bulge” in the child’s pants. Because that is very important, apparently.

I sincerely hope this is some kind of hoax. But it seems to be a real thing.

This issue does have a lighthearted side, though. Reflecting on her search to find her son appropriate products, Ellie describes her situation as “tragicomic.”

“I’m an adult, married heterosexual woman who doesn’t have a child with a penis,” she says, “I don’t really know what children’s penises look like and yet I’ve had really explicit conversations with strangers about children’s penises.”

I always wonder how much of the left’s obsession with “LGBT Youth” is thinly veiled … you know what.
