This week, Israeli Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch announced a decision to relax the rules governing the carrying of firearms and the issuance of licenses to carry. The move came shortly after the reprehensible slaughter of four Orthodox Jewish men and a police officer in a West Jerusalem Temple by terrorists armed with knives, axes and a gun. The assailants in the attack had been shot and killed at the scene by police. Aharonovitch was quoted in an article in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz as stating, “The decision to ease [approving gun permits] is a result of the present need to strengthen the feeling of security for the population, in light of the recent terrorist incidents befalling us.”

As the Haaretz article explains, the decision temporarily allows licensed security personnel to take firearms home with them. Further, the criteria for granting firearm licenses has been changed, allowing for people in sufficiently dangerous communities to acquire firearms licenses. Requirements for ex-military personnel and current military reservists have also been eased.

In late 2012, following the tragic murders in Newtown, Conn., NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre uttered the now famous words, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” The common sense statement received harsh criticism at the time in some corners of the media. Nonetheless, the Israeli Minister of Public Security, undeniably tasked with some of the most challenging internal security conditions on Earth, echoed that sentiment by relaxing Israel’s normally strict firearms rules in the face of this latest atrocity. While a departure from the typical reaction of Western officials confronted with the ugly reality of wanton violence, denial and wishful thinking are not viable options for a nation whose very existence neighboring powers have sworn to destroy.

Notably, Aharonovitch isn’t the only high-ranking security official to endorse this view after a tragedy. In 2013, following an attack in a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, Interpol Secretary Robert K. Noble suggested that an armed citizenry could be used to counter terrorist violence. Noble told ABC, “Societies have to think about how they’re going to approach the problem…. One is to say we want an armed citizenry; you can see the reason for that.” Noble added, “You have to ask yourself, ‘Is an armed citizenry more necessary now than it was in the past with an evolving threat of terrorism?’ This is something that has to be discussed.”

I. Don’t. Care.

These three magic words could end so many arguments.

Most appeals in the name of “social justice” rely on an underlying assumption of universal altruism. They assume that you care if something bad happens to anyone, anywhere, and advise you to take some sort of action to ease or prevent their suffering.

People react by questioning whether or not that stranger, somewhere, is really suffering, or if they are suffering any more than anyone else. They examine the circumstances of the alleged suffering and the motives of the people bringing the alleged suffering to light.

They argue about the details and the proportion of the suffering and point out their own allegedly comparable suffering, or the suffering of some person or people who are allegedly suffering more.

Once you’re arguing, they’ve already got you.

Ahead of a weekend trip to Iowa, potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson sought to assure supporters Wednesday evening that he’s a strong Second Amendment supporter.

As he inches closer to the prospect of a presidential campaign, Carson used a conference call to try to address questions about his loyalty to gun rights. Skeptics often point to a statement the neurosurgeon-turned-conservative-activist made in 2013 to conservative talk-show host Glenn Beck, who asked whether people have the right to own semi-automatic weapons.

“It depends on where you live,” Carson told Beck. “If you live in the midst of a lot of people, and I’m afraid that that semi-automatic weapon is going to fall into the hands of a crazy person, I would rather you not have it.”

Obama’s Latest Illegal Folly: Unlawful Immigration Action

In at least twenty-five separate occasions caught on video, Obama has stated correctly and unequivocally that the Oval Office has no power to alter or ignore U.S. Immigration and Naturalization laws, rules or policies, as established by Congress. This means that the crime he is about to commit against the United States is both willful and premeditated. The question is… what will members of Congress and the American people do about it?

Once again, Republican Party leaders are talking about suing Obama over his abuse of office. There is no precedence or legal authority granted by the Constitution to sue a president for treasonous acts. The U.S. Constitution states precisely what Congress can and must do when an Oval Office occupant is acting against the United States and beyond their Constitutional authority….

Article II – Section 4 states – “The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Congress must impeach Barack Obama for his unconstitutional actions. Suing Obama is nothing more than an overt attempt to escape the constitutional authority and duties of Congress by avoiding the obvious remedy prescribed for just such an occasion in the U.S. Constitution. Before Congress can force the Executive Branch to respect the Constitution, they must respect the Constitution themselves. In this case, Obama’s unilateral action on immigration meets the following test…

· Such an action is beyond the legal authority of the Executive Branch · As a result, it is a direct violation of the U.S. Constitution · The act is of, by and for La Raza and millions of illegal aliens, not the American people · As such, it is an overt act of war against the American people · The act directly threatens both national sovereignty, security, and the rule of law · As such, it is again, an overt act of war against the American people and national security · Congress has placed Obama on OFFICIAL NOTICE in advance of the act · As a result, the act will be with the prior knowledge that it is unconstitutional and illegal

THIS IS AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE – It involves bribery from groups like La Raza via their millions in democrat campaign donations and lobby efforts. It involves numerous high crimes and misdemeanors, the result of which rises to the level of treason against the United States and the American people.

“In the early 2000s, particularly after 9/11, we saw a paradigm shift from community policing and problem-oriented principles to the war on terror, and we became Homeland Security police,” said Nolan, who has worked in the federal agency’s Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.

He said this shift toward “homeland security” had quickly destroyed the relationships police had worked nearly two decades to build.

Knife Rights’ First Annual Ratings of Best & Worst Cities for Knife Owners (NYC Wins Worst City!)

Published on: November 19, 2014

In the past five years Knife Rights has significantly advanced the rights of law-abiding knife owners in the United States, passing 15 pro-knife bills in 11 states. Knife Rights Chairman Doug Ritter explains, “This first annual Knife Rights review of the worst and best knife laws in America contrasts places where law-abiding knife owners enjoy complete or substantial freedom with those places which restrict the freedom of honest citizens by imposing arbitrary and irrational restrictions. These extreme anti-knife regulations are universally ignored by criminals and serve only to harass unsuspecting citizens.” The ratings were released at the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses Sportsman – Legislator Summit held in Sunriver, Oregon.

Knife Owners Beware! The 10 Worst Anti-Knife Cities in America

The ten worst anti-knife cities stand out for their outright persecution of honest knife owners and extraordinarily restrictive anti-knife ordinances, far more severe than even the state laws in those areas. All too often this results in unwary citizens being subject to arrest and prosecution, and loss of their knives, for having a knife that is perfectly legal elsewhere in the state.

  1. New York, NY (majority of pocketknives will result in arrest, aggressive persecution of knife owners, over 60,000 to date)
  2. Philadelphia, PA (all knives are illegal to carry except when actually in use on the job)
  3. Ocean City, MD (many common pocketknives are illegal, Catch 22 traps many citizens)
  4. San Antonio, TX (all locking-blade pocketknives knives are illegal to carry except on the job)
  5. Rocky River, OH (2.5-inch blade limit)
  6. Boston, MA (2.5-inch blade carry limit, including in any vehicle)
  7. Cleveland, OH (2.5-inch blade carry limit, registration of any sale or gift of a longer bladed knife)
  8. Chicago, IL (2.5-inch blade concealed carry limit, 2-inch blade limit for 18 and under, but minor cannot legally obtain any knife)
  9. Corpus Christi, TX (illegal to carry any fixed blade knife or a folder with a blade longer than 3-inches except when actually in use on the job)
  10. Aspen, CO (Any concealed knife is illegal to carry in public)

 

More details on each of the 10 worst cities’ knife restrictions can be found at: www.KnifeRights.org/10WorstBest2014

10 Best States for Knife Owners

Tied for First Place: Alaska / Arizona / Kansas / New Hampshire / Tennessee / Utah
Second Place: Georgia

Tied for Third Place: Arkansas / South Carolina / South Dakota

Law-abiding knife owners face no restrictions on the knives they can own or carry in Alaska, Arizona, Kansas, New Hampshire, Tennessee and Utah. In all these states only the criminal misuse of a knife is illegal. In Georgia, the only restriction is that knives carried are limited to a 5-inch blade.

All of the states in First and Second Place have enacted Knife Rights’ model knife law preemption bills. Preemption stops local jurisdictions from passing ordinances more restrictive than state law, preventing a patchwork of local laws that can trap unwary citizens.

Arkansas, South Carolina and South Dakota have no knife restrictions at the state level. However, these states have not yet enacted knife law preemption, so towns and cities in these states are free to enact restrictions greater than state law. Knife owners need to be wary in that regard.

The Authoritarian Left Was on Course to Win the Culture Wars… then Along Came #GamerGate

Published on: November 14, 2014

In all of the distracting, hysterical, evidence-free and unfair allegations of misogyny and bigotry hurled at supporters of GamerGate, the consumer revolt that continues to surface outrageous misconduct in the video games press, something is being forgotten.

GamerGate is remarkable—and attracts the interest of people like me—because it represents perhaps the first time in the last decade or more that a significant incursion has been made in the culture wars against guilt-mongerers, nannies, authoritarians and far-Left agitators.

Industry after industry has toppled over, putting up no more of a fight than, say, France in 1940. Publishing, journalism, TV… all lie supine beneath the crowing, cackling, censorious battle-axes, male and female, of the third-wave feminist and social justice causes.

But not gamers. Lovers of video games, on seeing their colleagues unfairly hounded as misogynists, on watching journalists credulously reporting scandalous sexual assault claims just because a person was perceived to be “right-wing” and on seeing the games they love attacked and their very identities denied and ridiculed, have said: no. This will not stand.

The reaction in the press has been bewilderment and, then, apoplectic rage, driven at least in part by a media establishment that sees video gamers—the supposed dorks and basement-dwellers of popular imagination—mounting a credible and effective defence against the liars, frauds, neurotics and attention-seekers who have already destroyed morale and wrecked culture in the comic, sci fi and fantasy worlds.

In other words, some of the bitterness comes from people who are shocked that it took video gamers to say, “No more of this, thank you.”

Obama Orders ‘Mental-Health’ Testing for All US Schoolkids (under auspices of ‘gun violence’)

Using “gun violence” as its cover, the Obama administration has quietly unleashed a cache of federal dollars that will be used for testing students for signs of mental health issues in K-12 schools.

Critics say personal information scooped up in the screenings will be logged into databases that will follow the child throughout his or her academic career and beyond.

Public schools, which have increasingly taken on aspects of psychiatric clinics in recent years, will get infused with more than $150 million in federal grants to further this agenda under the auspices of Obama’s 2013 executive action titled “Now is the Time to Do Something About Gun Violence.”

Obama took the action following the Sandy Hook, Connecticut, school shooting, putting Vice President Joe Biden in charge of a task force on “gun violence.”

These are the goals that came out of Biden’s task force:

• Strengthen the background check system for gun sales
• Require background checks for all gun sales
• Pass a new, stronger ban on assault weapons
• Limit ammunition magazines to 10 rounds
• Finish the job of getting armor-piercing bullets off the streets
• Give law enforcement additional tools to prevent and prosecute gun crime
• End the freeze on gun violence research
• Make our schools safer with new resource officers and counselors, better emergency response plans and more nurturing school climates
• Ensure quality coverage of mental health treatment, particularly for young people.

The last two measures are where the mental health screenings for students come into play.

“A Personal Challenge to All Jews to Defend Themselves” By Aaron Zelman (From 2003)

Published on: November 10, 2014

Aaron Zellman founded Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership in 1989, which he ran until his death in 2010.

 

Your rabbi is beaten up by thugs on the sidewalk outside your synagogue.

You wake up one morning to discover that someone has spray-painted swastikas and the words “Jew vermin must die” on your house.

Your grandmother’s headstone is kicked over and the vandal defecates on her grave before he and his gang move on to destroy the rest of the cemetary.

Your son comes home from college bruised and bloody, having been kicked by pro-Palenstinian demonstrators. When you protest to school administrators, you discover that Jews are becoming an unpopular minority on campuses all around the United States.

You download your e-mail and read a calm, rational-sounding news article that claims Jews, not Arabs, masterminded the horrors of September 11.

You click on a Web site and watch ghastly video footage of terrorists cutting off a Wall Street Journal reporter’s head, just because the reporter is Jewish.

You turn on the nightly news, and words like these vomit out at you:

You are wicked deceivers of the American people. You have sucked their blood. … You are the synagogue of Satan, and you have wrapped your tentacles around the U.S. government, and you are deceiving and sending this nation to hell. [1]

The Jews are the Jews. There never was among them a supporter of peace. They are all liars. They are terrorists. Therefore it is necessary to slaughter them and murder them, according to the words of Allah. Kill the Jews and those Americans that are like them. [2]

Wake up, my fellow Jews! These aren’t the long-past, discredited words and deeds of Nazi Germany. These are your reality — now! Today! These examples are taken from the daily newspapers or the nightly news of our world, our era. They scream a warning of our danger — and of renewed danger to our religion, our heritage, our families, our traditions, our safety, and our very life.

“For those who question why I have been saying, ‘We need to love one another,’ they didn’t know that when you are faced with a real shortened timeline of your life, you begin to measure everything and its worth,” Beck said.

“Maybe you didn’t even notice, but I have been gone,” Beck concluded. “But I’m happy to say, I’m back. But with all of this time left, what do I spend it on? I have pivoted. I know what life is about and it isn’t about money, fame or division. It isn’t about politics or a 5 p.m. TV show that continues to highlight problems. This summer we went into production on a pilot that will completely change what I do on TV. But that really is only one piece. In the macro, it’s about me changing me and you changing you.”

Bundled Cable Deathwatch: Ratings Plunge, Darwin Looms (Death of the Libtards)

Categories: Activism, Education, News, Politics
Tags: No Tags
Comments: No Comments
Published on: November 10, 2014

According to a Variety report released this week on the plunge in the number cable television viewers, millions of Americans are going through what I call The Process.

You don’t just cut your cable or satellite television cord all at once. There’s a process involved where your viewing habits slowly migrate away from cable and towards alternative outlets like Netflix and Amazon Streaming. Then “it” happens. You realize you’re paying $100 a month for a service you hardly watch (cable) and $10 a month for one you watch all the time (streaming).

You still don’t cut the cord. Unfortunately, not everything you want to watch streams: News, sports, Jimmy Kimmel… This starts another process: Am I willing to pay $100 a month for ESPN and Fox News?

The number of people going through this process can be unscientifically gleaned through the ratings for cable television, which are currently in a double-digit freefall:

For this year’s third quarter, C3 ratings among adults 18-49 were down 8% across the board for the major groups — with steeper drops of 22% across the A+E Networks cablers (A&E, History, Lifetime); 14% across the NBCUniversal cable cluster; and 13% for both Disney’s cablers and those of Time Warner, notably TNT and TBS. These and drops at other networks follow a steady rate of declines in the past few quarters, according to research by MoffettNathanson. …

But the headwinds that Big Cable faces are much stronger than what might be deemed as a cyclical drop in viewership. In short, the most established players — think USA Network, Syfy, TNT, TBS, A&E, Lifetime, MTV, Discovery, FX, AMC, ABC Family, among others — are starting to grapple with the issues of audience erosion, rising programming costs and heightened competition for ad dollars that have bedeviled the Big Four broadcast nets for more than 20 years.

C3 combines three days of DVR viewing and live broadcast.

The result of this is a self-induced death spiral. To pick up lost cable customers, CBS News has just launched a free streaming news channel, and you will soon be able to subscribe to and stream HBO and the CBS network without being forced into an obscenely priced cable package. Dish will soon launch a bargain-priced streaming cable package that includes ESPN (sports!).

The death spiral is content providers reacting to the loss of cable customers by creating services that will almost certainly increase the number of cord cutters.

Also … layoffs:

The industry’s response to the anticipated roller-coaster ride ahead is evidenced in many ways. Turner Broadcasting is implementing a mass staff cut of about 1,500 positions, through buyouts and layoffs, which are part of a larger cost-cutting initiative at Time Warner.

What truly terrifies the multi-nationals that own most of the cable networks is the loss of carriage or affiliate fees — that’s the money dozens of low-rated networks earn just for being a part of your cable package.

Whether you watch crap like CNN or MTV or not, these left-wing sewage spewers are making money off of you. Currently, these appalling carriage/affiliate fees are more profitable for these networks than advertising revenue.

Here’s How The GOP Victory Could Cause Obama To Leave The Constitution In A Pile Of Ashes

Obama doesn’t like it.

He’s been repudiated by the voters, and he doesn’t like it. He’s supposed to be loved by the masses, but they have turned on him. He’s supposed to be the Democratic savior, but the Democratic candidates for the most part didn’t even want to be seen with him.

The man who uttered the words “Don’t worry, you have me” has no one. The emperor has lost his clothes.

Where do we go from here?

President Obama is going to get defensive. He’s going to get mean. He’s going to do whatever he wants, the Constitution be damned.

He’s not just a narcissist; he’s a gangster. He is a criminal. He has used the power of the chief executive office to hurt others.
