Giving President Obama fast-track authority to conclude an international trade agreement is like playing Russian roulette with six bullets in the chamber, says one of America’s leading gun rights organizations.

Gun Owners of America is blasting a congressional proposal that empowers Obama to unilaterally negotiate international agreements as “a ‘bait and switch’ scheme that could seriously impact the Second Amendment.”

House and Senate committees are currently preparing to hand Obama so-called “fast-track” trade promotion authority. It would enable the president to unilaterally negotiate the TransPacific Partnership, a trade and global governance agreement with the U.S. and 11 other nations bordering the Pacific Ocean.

Under fast-track rules, Congress would not be able to amend or even vet the completed agreement. It could only approve everything that Obama has included, including anything tucked away in the 99th page that no one really wants to talk about, or kill it.

Gun Owners of America warns fast track “delegates to Barack Obama the legislative authority to do anything he wants – absolutely anything – so long as he includes it in a ‘trade agreement.’”

Terrorists can strike anywhere and at any time, giving them a huge strategic advantage.Unfortunately, too many politicians around the world are refusing to admit this.

After the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris earlier this month, France placed 10,000 uniformed soldiers in front of Jewish sites across the country. Unfortunately, this is unlikely to be very effective.

Israel learned this lesson the hard way. For several decades after its founding, Israel responded by putting more soldiers and armed police on the streets. Unfortunately, a mass killer can wait for officers to leave the scene or to kill the uniformed officers first. No matter how much money Israel spent, terrorists could wait patiently until they see an opening to attack.

Snowstorm Snowjob Is a Teachable Moment

Yet this was presented as a life-threatening crisis, and look what they did, look at the economy, the economic commerce that these people from the National Weather Service and all these politicians collectively ganged up on and destroyed. Look at all the stores that closed unnecessarily. Look at all the flights that were canceled unnecessarily.

Now, the weather guy is apologizing and blaming his models. The same people that tell us their models 50 to a hundred years out on climate change can be trusted. Anyway, I mean, I could, I could sit here and do a giant See, I Told You So, predicted this yesterday, and I know what you’re gonna retort: “Hey, Rush, they didn’t miss it. They just missed where. Boston, New England are getting pounded.” That’s all true. That’s all true, but, folks, 24 hours out they are forecasting that this is gonna be massive and they still miss it in the nation’s number one city. So just hang on for that. I mean, this is such a teachable moment.

It is such a teachable moment about government, the relationship that citizens have to and with government. It’s a lesson about how liberals do things and why, and why there will not be an apology from them. de Blasio is saying, “Hey, better safe than sorry.” They can never make a mistake. They never screw up. It’s everybody else that screws up and has to apologize.

New national chair of the Communist Party USA, Chicago man John Bachtell, has admitted that his Party “utilizes” the Democratic Party “to advance its agenda.”

Writing on the People’s World website, Bachtell explains that much of the left wants to abandon the Democratic Party (as much of the “right” wants to abandon the GOP) to form a radical third party.

In an article entitled A radical third party? I agree! Bachtell explains:

Certainly, there’s widespread disillusionment with both the Democratic and Republican parties. That’s reflected in the latest Pew Research poll: 38 percent of voters describe themselves as independent, 32 percent as Democrats, and 25 percent as Republicans. In 1991, the three were approximately equal.

Gunpowder is bullet-proof preventative medicine for American physicians. Every doctor should have the option to carry concealed in clinics and hospitals.

A 55-year-old man named Stephen Pasceri walked into Boston’s Brigham and Woman’s Hospital last Tuesday and asked for renowned cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Michael Davidson. When the surgeon appeared, Pasceri pulled out a .40-caliber pistol and hit the surgeon twice before turning the gun on himself.

Dr. Davidson was rushed to the emergency room and operated on but the gunshot wounds proved fatal. His pregnant wife – also a surgeon – was left to mourn the death of her loving husband and care for their three (soon-to-be four) young children alone.

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver’s arrest was a blow to the gut of the progressive activists who viewed the powerful Manhattan Democrat as their champion.

Advocates on issues ranging from rent control to abortion rights have been left wondering whether Silver can still wield the clout they’ve come to expect over two decades.

“I am very much concerned,” said Michael McKee, treasurer of the Tenants Political Action Committee.

“He is the only one of the three men in a room who would be inclined to hold out for something better on rent regulations,” McKee said.

Gumbel Grumble: Bryant Gumbel Spouts Off to Rolling Stone About Hating NRA

Categories: Activism, Education, News, Politics

Published on: January 25, 2015

This will likely come as a shock to anyone born during or after the Reagan administration, but Rolling Stone Magazine (RS) used to be considered a relevant chronicle of avant-garde culture. Currently, the publication’s chief concern is a ceaseless commemoration of the Baby Boom generation, along with the promotion of a well-sanitized left-wing establishment orthodoxy. This stale formula is on full display this week on RS’s website, which contains an interview with longtime mainstream media standard Bryant Gumbel, who uses the forum to launch into hysterics against the NRA.

When Gumbel was asked a relatively innocuous question by Rolling Stone’s interviewer about a hunting episode of his HBO television program, Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, the television personality abruptly shifted into an anti-NRA tirade. “There are a few things I hate more than the NRA,” he said. “I mean truly. I think they’re pigs. I think they don’t care about human life. I think they are a curse upon the American landscape. So we got that on the record.”

Despite holding himself out as a thoughtful journalist, Gumbel goes on to admit that he possesses this view despite his profound ignorance of the topic. He added, “That said, I’m willing to separate that this story had nothing to do with that. It’s not a gun story… Obviously, that was my first experience around killing and guns and hunting.” The now seemingly-forgotten notions of journalistic ethics suggest that someone purporting to be a journalist should refrain from such divisive, hateful statements, at the very least until he’s thoroughly acquainted himself with the subject matter at which they’re directed.

As Gumbel has established he knows little on the topic, here is some information on the scope of the community he chose to insult. NRA is comprised of five million members representing a multitude of backgrounds and walks of life among the nation’s 100 million gun owners. A December 2012 Gallup poll found that NRA had a 54 percent favorability rating among the American people, while 67 percent of Americans felt that NRA reflects their views at least some of the time. In contrast, the president’s approval rating in December 2012 hovered between 40-43 percent.

The NRA is simply a large association of ordinary Americans who all believe passionately in the freedoms protected by the Second Amendment. The source of Gumbel’s animosity toward them is unclear, but it’s certainly unbefitting of a media personality who has profited from his public image and apparent goodwill with the American people.

Gumbel’s crude disparaging of such a large and diverse group of Americans united in their support for a constitutionally-guaranteed freedom, despite his admitted cluelessness about them or the issue that brings them together, displays a bigotry and ignorance that at one time would have made him a fit subject of ridicule by RS. As it stands, however, RS and Bryant Gumbel are a pretty good match: long past their prime and of little cultural relevance anymore.

Yet Again, Bloomturd Ignores Existing Laws to Argue for Additional Laws

Bloomturd Angry

As part of its campaign for background checks on private firearm sales, Everytown for Gun Safety is using Vermont as a laboratory, claiming, “in the 21st century, gun-owning Vermonters also go online, to a growing number of websites where anonymous buyers and sellers exchange firearms.”

As usual, when it comes to what gun control supporters say, a reality check is in order. Federal law has a lot to say about transfers of firearms, including between people who are not firearm dealers. These same laws apply regardless of how the transactions are arranged.

Federal law prohibits transferring a firearm to anyone known or reasonably believed to be prohibited from possessing a firearm. It prohibits shipping or mailing a firearm to a person who is not a dealer and who is a resident of another state. It prohibits a non-dealer from selling a firearm to a non-dealer who is a resident of another state, without going through a dealer. And it prohibits transferring a handgun to anyone under the age of 18.

Federal law also prohibits anyone from being engaged in the business of dealing in firearms without having a Federal Firearm License (FFL). This brings us to Everytown’s admission that it “contracted an investigative agency to post ads offering firearms for sale [in Vermont] on the website Armslist.com. Between July 28 and October 9, investigators placed 24 ads.” Anybody else who offered to sell that many firearms in that span of time without an FFL might well expect to attract the negative attention of law enforcement.

However, this isn’t the first time that gun control supporters have acted as if gun control laws don’t apply to them. As reported by the New York Times, when Michael Bloomberg was the mayor of New York City, he “sent teams of private investigators, usually a man and a woman, to five states. Posing as gun buyers, they went to stores whose guns had been linked to more than 500 crimes in New York City from 1994 to 2001.” Solicitation of straw purchasing? Purchasing firearms outside your state of residence? Tsk, tsk, Michael Bloomberg.

Similarly, in 2013, former NBC “Meet the Press” host David Gregory displayed a 30-round AR-15 magazine, prohibited in the District of Columbia, during an interview in D.C. with NRA Executive Vice-President Wayne LaPierre. This week, the Washington Examiner revealed that D.C. police wanted to arrest Gregory (who had ignored their advice about the legality of the stunt), but D.C. Attorney General, Irvin Nathan, refused to pursue the case. The decision was supposedly based on the fact that Gregory was considered a nice guy and had no criminal record. Notably, D.C. officials normally do not apply that same rule of prosecutorial discretion to other nice folks with no records, including veterans just passing through the District. This leads us to suspect Nathan’s decision had more to do with his opinion that Gregory illegally possessed the magazine for the “good cause” of promoting gun control. As they’ll tell you themselves, D.C. officials “hate” guns.

Everytown is basing its current Vermont campaign on its claim that it identified 169 people looking to buy guns advertised online and that seven of them were prohibited from possessing firearms. Projecting that to the roughly 3,000 firearms Everytown says are offered for sale in online ads in Vermont per year, Everytown concludes that “online” sales could result in 126 prohibited persons acquiring firearms illegally each year.

Once again, a reality check is in order. Even without a background check, any number of proposed sales advertised online might not ultimately be consummated because the seller realizes it might violate federal law. Gun owners understand that if a gun they sell is later taken into custody by a law enforcement agency investigating a crime, that firearm will be traced by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to the dealer that sold it, and the original retail buyer will be identified. In addition to not wanting to help criminals get guns, law-abiding gun owners don’t want the police knocking on their doors to inquire why a gun traced to them ended up at a crime scene.

Everytown hopes that it can convince Vermonters that they’re in imminent danger that only an expanded background check law can prevent. Ludicrously, it insists, “The bedrock of firearm safety in the U.S. is the background check system,” and, “The single most important thing we can do to reduce gun violence is to require a criminal background check for every gun sale.”

Yet again, a reality check. Data reported by the FBI indicates that Vermont already has the lowest violent crime rate among the states, 69 percent lower than the national rate and 71 percent lower than the rate in California, the most populous state that requires background checks on all firearm transfers.

With Bloomberg’s agenda blocked in Congress, Everytown is trying to achieve incremental steps toward gun registration in states that it thinks are most vulnerable to its deceptions. Let’s hope that liberty-loving Vermonters will not fall for Bloomberg’s scam.

The Psychodynamics of the Radical Liberal Mind (It’s Scary In There!)

The first step toward an in-depth understanding of adult behavior is to comprehend its origins in childhood. Whether adaptive or maladaptive, the enduring patterns of thinking, emoting, behaving and relating that define adult personality begin in the early years of life. In fact, our earliest experiences with caretakers and others, acting on inherited temperament factors, strongly determine our later personality traits, including those expressed in political values and beliefs.

The dispositions of the liberal mind are no exception: his hopes and fears, beliefs and passions, values and morals are in great measure the legacy of his childhood from birth through adolescence. The traits that define who he is are the traits that lead him to pursue particular goals in the political arena and to use particular methods to achieve them.

Certain neurotic themes are dominant in the radical liberal mind’s perceptions of the world. All of them portray the citizen as a suffering child who is victimized, helpless and in need of rescue. All are evident in various liberal platforms. They represent the liberal mind’s transference of childhood dynamics into the world of adult relationships. As expressed in his most passionate political pronouncements, the radical liberal mind believes that:

  • A very large portion of the population is suffering; they are suffering because they are deprived, neglected, exploited or abused.
  • They are suffering because of certain injustices inflicted upon them.
  • They are helpless to stop their suffering.
  • Bad people, such as capitalists and the rich, cause the victims to suffer by depriving, neglecting, exploiting and abusing them.

To understand the workings of American politics, you have to understand this fundamental law: Conservatives think liberals are stupid. Liberals think conservatives are evil.Charles Krauthammer

Even liberals who’ve accomplished a lot in their lives and have high IQs often say things on a regular basis that are stunningly, profoundly stupid and at odds with the way the world works. Modern liberalism has become so bereft of common sense and instinctually suicidal that America can only survive over the long haul by thwarting the liberal agenda. In fact, liberalism has become such a toxic and poisonous philosophy that most liberals wouldn’t behave differently if their goal were to deliberately destroy the country. So, how does liberalism cause well-meaning, intelligent liberals to get this way? Well, it starts with…

David Gregory Arrest Affidavit: NBC Knew He Would Violate D.C. Gun Law

In a nearly forgotten controversy David Gregory, then host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” appeared on TV waving a 30-round ammunition magazine from the network’s District of Columbia studio.

Gregory was aggressively interviewing the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre in December 2012, asking if it might be a good idea to ban the high-capacity magazines.

His prop, ironically, violated a District of Columbia law making it illegal to possess an ammunition magazine – even an empty one – that holds more than 10 bullets.

Gregory was never arrested or charged with the crime, which carries up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000, but an affidavit released Friday shows that’s exactly what local police recommended.

SCOPE NY Members Send a Message and Demand that Sheldon Silver Steps Down!

What SCOPE members should know about the current situation in Albany. As you read this, remember what happens to you if you send in your tax return late, or forget to re-register your car.

Sheldon Silver has been the speaker of the assembly since 1994. 21 years later he has been arrested for corruption charges. To us in Upstate, we always knew that corruption was rampant in Albany. We knew that all “legislative” action was controlled by Silver and that he ruled with absolute power. No one in Albany had the fortitude to go up against him. Corruption had become so common and accepted that we associated corruption as just being New York politics.

When his associate William Rapfogel, Silver’s close ally, was sent to state prison after pleading guilty to embezzling millions as an executive director of the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty, we didn’t bat an eye. Millions of dollars from a Council on Poverty! Really? And no one cared? What does that say about New Yorkers?

Silver was a key benefactor of the Council on Jewish Poverty , and William Rapfogel’s wife Judy is Silver’s chief of staff. Hey nothing to see here just move along.

Silver’s corruption charges related to undisclosed payments from a law firm called Goldberg & Iryami that specializes in tax certiorari.

A Tax certiorari proceeding involves the opportunity to reduce real estate taxes for co-op and condo boards and their shareholders so prevalent in NY City.

Jay Arthur Goldberg, who leads the firm, grew up on the Lower East Side with Silver. His firm represents the Grand Street co-op buildings where Silver and Rapfogel lived.

The locals in New York’s Lower East Side referred to this association as the Lower East Side old boys network. Now, this Lower East Side crew seems to be falling to pieces.

Any Federal or State employee who does anything that creates the appearance of impropriety creates an issue violating the public trust and is subject to punishment. We have all known that there is a huge integrity issue in Albany, and much of it exudes from Sheldon Silver.

Silver along with Andrew Cuomo were instrumental in pushing NY S.A.F.E. through the legislature with no debate or input. We know that several key players received donations from NY City donors in return for their cooperation and vote. Some of those players were fired in the last election, some were re-elected.

SCOPE is asking you to contact your elected representative and ask them to demand the resignation of Sheldon Silver as speaker of the assembly and replace him with someone who will run the assembly for all New York people, not just the City elite.

Sandy Hook Commission Gun Ban Ignores Constitution

The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission, formed in the wake of the school shooting tragedy in the Connecticut town, wants restrictive gun laws that do nothing and are in fact unconstitutional.

At Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14, 2012, 27-year-old teacher Victoria Soto bravely hid students in a restroom or closet, then died trying to protect them from shooter Adam Lanza. If she, the principal or any of the other adults in the school had access to a firearm, things might have turned out differently. As it was, 20 students and six teachers were killed that day.

The lesson of the folly of gun-free zones, where only predators are armed as they hunt down their victims, is one that repeatedly is lost on gun-control advocates. They simply ignore the lives saved when armed citizens can fire back in self-defense. From Virginia Tech to a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., to the school in Newtown, mass shootings are often in venues declaring themselves gun-free zones.

Before the Newtown shooting, a gunman walked into a shopping mall on Dec. 11, 2012, in Clackamas, Ore., with the intention of killing as many as possible. He managed to kill two before being confronted by Nick Meli, an armed citizen with a concealed-carry permit who refused to be a victim. Meli prevented another mass tragedy and saved countless lives.
