California Gun Owners And Liberty Lovers Won’t Like This Edict

Ah, California. The land of beautiful mountains, amazing desserts, awesome surfing, the Motion Picture Industry, fake boobs and the first ever gun law that allows courts to seize your weapons if a close relative thinks you’re cracked.

Yep, as of last Tuesday, your moody, manic, anti-Second Amendment, Castro-loving, eco-terrorist, tree-humping, Prius-driving twisted sister can call you “crazy”, report you to the cops and boom … Deputy Wedge Figgus can confiscate your Remington 870 ‘til a court decides you’re not demented.

Check it out …

First law of its kind in the U.S.

California residents can now petition a judge to temporarily remove a close relative’s firearms if they fear their family member will commit gun violence, thanks to a new safety measure signed into law Tuesday (9/30/14) by Gov. Jerry Brown.

Under the “Gun Violence Restraining Order” law, a successful petition would allow a judge to remove the close relative’s guns for at least 21 days, with the option to extend that period to a year, pending an additional hearing, according to Reuters.. The law is the first of its kind in the U.S., and will be an extension of existing legislation that temporarily prohibits people with domestic violence restraining orders from owning firearms.”

California, like Obama, has a one-size-fits-all answer for all conundrums and it is this: Mo’ Gubbermint!

Liberals tend to devote a significant portion of their daily lives to proving how not racist they are. One particularly expedient way of doing this is to declare that something a conservative has said or done is totally racist, and then to place oneself in opposition to the thing that was racist: “See, I’m not a racist!”

As result, the List of Things That Are Racist has grown incomprehensibly long. The Free Beacon‘s devotion to public service obligates us to provide this list (not exhaustive by any means) of what liberals do and do not consider to be racist.

Things That Are Racist

1. Talking about Ebola (Salon)

2. Describing the Hong Kong protests as “clean and orderly” (Vox)

3. Pointing out that white people use heroin (Salon)

4. #BringBackOurGirls (Salon)

5. Describing Obama as “angry” (MSNBC)

6. The American Revolution (Salon)

7. Children’s books with white characters (Salon)

New Court Ruling CuHomo Must Release AR-15 Registration Data to Public

In an advisory opinion issued Friday, the state Committee on Open Government says the State Police should not deny Freedom of Information Law requests seeking “aggregate” data such as the number of assault weapons that have been registered under the provisions of the NY SAFE Act.

State Police officials have for almost a year refused to release any data about the number of weapons registered under the controversial gun control law.

They have consistently pointed to a little-known clause tucked into the speedily passed law that renders registration information contained in the state’s databank confidential: “Records assembled or collected for purposes of inclusion in such (a) database shall not be subject to disclosure,” the law reads.

To the derision of anti-NY SAFE activists and transparency advocates, the State Police has held that the statute covers any data derived from those records, as well. Critics say that the policy prevents New Yorkers from assessing the effectiveness of the registration law.

“Those records you seek are derived from information collected for the State Police database and are, therefore, exempt from disclosure,” State Police spokeswoman Darcy Wells said last November in response to a FOIL request from the Times Union, one of numerous media outlets that have sought the data.

COOG’s new advisory opinion, written by Assistant Director Camille S. Jobin-Davis, disagrees with that policy.

Nation’s Leader Rejects Keynesian Economics, Acknowledges that Real Jobs Are Created by the Private Sector

You’re probably surprised by the title of this post. You may even be wondering if President Obama had an epiphany on the road to Greece?

I don’t mean to burst your bubble, but the leader we’re talking about isn’t the President of the United States.

Instead, we’re talking about the Prime Minister of Finland and he deserves praise and recognition for providing one of the most insightful and profound statements ever uttered by a politician.

He explained that the emperor of Keynesian economics has no clothes.

As reported by Le Monde (and translated by Open Europe), here’s what Alexander Stubb said when asked whether European governments should try to “stimulate” their economies with more spending.

We need to put an end to illusions: it’s not the public sector that creates jobs. To believe that injecting billions of euros [into the economy] is the key to growth is an idea of the past.

Amen.

You don’t make a nation richer by taking money from one pocket and putting it in another pocket.

Particularly when the net effect is to redistribute funds from the productive sector to the government.

Could Illegal Unaccompanied Minors Be Spreading New Mystery Virus to U.S.?

Published on: October 4, 2014

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a health advisory on September 26 stating that “nine pediatric patients were hospitalized with an acute neurologic illness of undetermined etiology.”

The CDC is investigating the nine cases of acute neurological illness and paralysis in Colorado children to see if enterovirus 68 (EV-D68) is the virus responsible for their symptoms.

These illnesses, having occurred since August 1, 2014, are “characterized by focal limb weakness” and abnormalities of the spinal cord “consisting of non-enhancing lesions largely restricted to the gray matter” on MRI, says the CDC.

To date, none of the children affected have experienced seizures or altered mental status, and none have had any “cortical, subcortical, basal ganglia, or thalamic lesions on MRI.”

Curiously though, most of the children reported a respiratory illness in the two weeks leading up to the development of neurologic symptoms.

Could these children have been infected by the same respiratory illness brought over by the masses of illegal immigrant children from Latin America?

What’s At Stake in the 2014 Election

This week Conservative Review debuted (full disclosure: I’m on the editorial team there), with the intent of holding Washington, D.C. accountable to conservative principles regardless of party. Check out our Liberty Scorecard for Democrats in the House and Senate. The score is calculated on each member’s 50 most important votes on fiscal, social, and defense issues over the last six years from a constitutional conservative perspective. The highest ranking Democrat in the Senate is Sen. Edward Markey, and he’s voted for American Exceptionalism only 18% of the time. No Democrats in the House have voted constitutionally more than 46 percent of the time.

Those paltry scores mean Democrats in Washington no longer just disagree with us on the application of our Constitution, they now oppose the Constitution itself.

Make no mistake, most of the Republican leadership is also pro-amnesty is as well. But our ability to hold their feet to the fire on the issue is the only reason the “gang of 8” scam didn’t happen last year, and we don’t have full-bore amnesty already. True, the Marxist in the White House may just do it via executive fiat regardless of November’s outcome, but there’s a far better chance of undoing amnesty in that scenario then if the lawlessness passes lawfully.

Why is holding the line on amnesty so important? It’s the greatest Democrat Party voter drive of all time. Register millions of more Democrat voters and every issue conservatives and libertarians prioritize is suddenly imperiled. Imagine exporting what’s happened to California post-1986 amnesty exported next to Texas, and then eventually the rest of the country. We won’t be able to win a national election in our lifetimes.

Game. Over.

Moms Demand SWATting (A disturbing trend on the fringes of the gun-control movement)

‘You see a GunFilth waving its penis substitute, exit, call police. Armed robbery in progress.” So wrote Twitter user “Little Black Dog” on September 13 of this year.

The injunction was a particularly colorful one, but the idea behind it, alas, is not as uncommon as one might wish. “I see you #opencarry with a gun in public,” a man named “joe villa” threatened earlier this week, “i’m calling the cops. psycho behaving erratic. make your day.” A translation for the more literate among us: “The law be damned; exercise your rights under the law and I’ll threaten your life.”

“Take a look through the comments threads on Moms Demand Action’s Facebook page,” Bearing Arms’s Bob Owens tells me, “and you’ll see a lot of this.” “Not,” he clarifies,

from the leaders of the group. But it is a mindset popular among the followers. On there, on the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence — ironically — and on GunFreeZone.net, you’ll notice commenters advocating that people call the police and exaggerate what is going on, hoping to get the cops to come in.

A cursory trawl through those sites reveals that Owens is correct in his assessment. The lion’s share of the commenters are innocuous and cordial — nothing more than law-abiding Americans participating in civil society. There are peaceful promises not to shop at Target or Kroger or Chili’s unless those businesses explicitly prohibit customers from bringing their firearms in with them; there are vehement-but-idle suggestions that anybody who wishes to carry a gun in public must have something seriously wrong with him; and there are the usual ignorant claims that shootings in America are on the increase (in fact, the opposite is true). But, every 20 comments or so, one sees exactly what Owens describes. Reacting to a photograph of a man standing at a checkout with a handgun holstered upon his hip, mom-who-demands-action Joyce Ward asks, “Why weren’t the police called immediately?” And “why,” Ward continues, “wasn’t he shot by the police for having a weapon”? Fellow poster Lisa McLogan Shaheen has a similar inquiry, wondering, “Why hasn’t someone called 911 so the cops can gun him down?” Others go a little further, proposing that they might help their cause along if they were actively to bring about an altercation. “Every time I see someone with a gun in a store I will call 911,” Jennifer Decker vows, “they’ll get tired of that right quick!!!” Even that plan is too limited for Ann Marie. “Just call the police every time you see someone with one,” she counsels, “the police will get sick of it eventually or have a run in with one of these clowns and then things will change.”

Fox News Poll: Voters reveal which state they want kicked out of the union (CA & NY Win!)

There’s lots of talk about it. Last month, Scotland voted against it. In 2013, some residents in California, Colorado and Maryland signed petitions to do it. And Texas has toyed with the idea off and on for years. What is “it”?

Secession!

But it’s a lot more talk than anything else, according to a Fox News national poll that asked voters if they would support their state splitting off from the United States. Just nine percent said they would.

The poll also gave people another option: What if you could boot other states out of the union?

Nearly twice as many — 17 percent — liked that idea.

Which state would be the first voted out? California. Of the voters willing to ditch a state or two, 53 percent pick the Golden State.

Next out the door is New York (25 percent), followed by Texas (20 percent) and Florida (11 percent). Respondents were allowed to name multiple states they wanted out of the union.

Bloomturd gun control group enters Oregon governor and state Senate races

Everytown for Gun Safety — the gun control group funded by billionaire Michael Bloomberg — is running ads in favor of Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber and attempting to unseat state Sen. Bruce Starr, R-Hillsboro.

The group on Tuesday reported spending just over $56,000 on ads lauding Kitzhaber on gun issues, including a TV ad featuring the brother-in-law of Steve Forsyth, one of the two people killed in the 2012 shootings at Clackamas Town Center.

The group has also reported spending $22,000 in support of Democrat Chuck Riley in his race against Starr, who opposed a bill that would have expanded background checks for gun purchases in Oregon.

The measure, which had Kitzhaber’s support, died in the Senate without coming to the floor in both 2013 and 2014. In each case, backers said they were one vote short of the 16 needed for passage, with Sen. Betsy Johnson, D-Scappoose, and all 14 Republicans opposed.

Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York and No. 8 on the Forbes list of the wealthiest Americans, announced earlier this year that he was putting $50 million into efforts to build political control for additional restrictions on guns.

Piers Morgan blames CNN for show’s ratings slump (Can’t admit it was his stupidity)

Morgan blames Anderson Cooper, his former colleague, for being a bad lead-in.

“Could I have done with a better lead-in? Yes,” Morgan says. “Anderson is a great field reporter, but does he drive big ratings at CNN, outside of a big news cycle? I don’t see any evidence of it. And yet the whole bank was being bet on him at 8 and 10 o’clock.

“I never bought into that as my best way of getting ratings” he continues. “You look over at Megyn Kelly on Fox News and she’s inheriting 450,000 or 500,000 from Bill O’Reilly in the [25-to-54-year-old] demo, and some days I’d be getting 60,000. That’s not to denigrate Anderson so much, because I think he’s pretty good at what he does. But was he the golden boy everybody thought he was? I didn’t see much evidence of that in ratings.”

(Morgan says he and Cooper “were never the easiest of bedfellows.” Cooper was “just a totally different character than me,” he says, “and we never really clicked.”)

LAPD Cops Are Disabling Their Own Recorders. Not Just a Few Cops Either, Half Of Them!

What good are lapel cams and microphones if the cops are disabling them? Why aren’t they being fired for this?

“No one likes to be monitored,” says Sid Heal, recently retired commander who evaluated technology during his decades-long tenure at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. And? If you do not want to be filmed and recorded don’t be a cop.

According to the arstechnica.com, The Los Angeles Police Commission is investigating how half of the recording antennas in the Southeast Division went missing, seemingly as a way to evade new self-monitoring procedures that the Los Angeles Police Department imposed last year.

Teacher’s plastic pirate sword leads to school lockdown (Pussification of the USA)

Guns and rumors of guns aren’t the only things that will cause schools to go into lockdown mode.

Costumes – complete with plastic sword – apparently will do it, too.

Four schools in Onslow County, North Carolina were sent into police lockdown when a cafeteria worker panicked when the employee saw someone dressed like a pirate.

It was “International Talk Like A Pirate Day” and one school employee apparently decided to take it one step further.

A staff member reported seeing a “suspicious person” – the “pirate” – approaching the school and called police.

“The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office said that ‘suspicious person’ turned out to be a Richlands Elementary staff member dressed as a pirate,” ABC 12 reports.

The school was locked down for about three hours and no “suspicious person” was to be found – likely because he or she was in a classroom.

According to The Daily News, “Onslow County Schools sent out a news release the day after the incident indicating the it was a case of mistaken identity and there was no malicious intent.”

First lady Michelle Obama, going to bat for Senate Democrats amid reports she is abandoning them on the campaign trail, is warning that control of the chamber and the potential Republican impeachment of her husband rests on just a few votes.

In a fundraising email for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, she urged party loyalists to cough up more money and help get Democrats to the polls in a month.

“I’ll put it frankly: If we lose these midterm elections, we’ll just see more obstruction, more lawsuits and talk about impeachment, and more votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act or even shut down the government,” she wrote.

Dangerous People and Deadly Force

When a man jumped over the White House fence, ran across the lawn and entered the residence, the Secret Service failed and failed again. One of the most conspicuous and surprising failures was that though it had armed agents on the ground and snipers on the roof, no one fired a shot to stop him.

In fact, the agency bragged about not using their guns, saying that “the officers showed tremendous restraint and discipline in dealing with this subject.” The agents didn’t shoot Omar Gonzalez because they “apparently concluded that he was not armed and did not appear to be carrying anything that might contain explosives,” reported The New York Times.

Lucky guess. As it turned out, he was carrying a folding knife with a 3 1/2-inch blade, which could have been put to deadly use. But agents were able to subdue him without bloodshed. A man reported to be mentally ill didn’t hurt anyone and wasn’t killed unnecessarily.

All’s well that ends well? Hardly. The idea that security officers would let a running intruder pass, based on the instant and highly fallible judgment that he was unarmed, suggests an excess of caution. “Tremendous restraint is not what we’re looking for,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah. “The message should be overwhelming force.”

But that’s not quite the right answer, either. Just this year, six people have scaled the fence — and no one would commend the Secret Service if all six had been riddled immediately with bullets. Gonzalez might have been stopped by attack dogs, which for some reason were not unleashed. It would be unfortunate to kill someone whose mental illness drove him to do something terribly stupid.

Conservatives Are Winning

I sometimes jokingly refer to myself as 003, which means I have been active at the national level of the conservative movement longer than every living conservative except for two others. 002 is Dr. Lee Edwards, Senior Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, and 001 is the first lady of the conservative movement, Phyllis Schlafly.

I say this to emphasize the fact that I know what it’s like for the conservative movement to be on hard times, and 2014 is a time to be encouraged and optimistic.

I strongly disagree with my friends at the local, state and national level who are discouraged, disappointed and disillusioned. In my opinion, there are more reasons to be encouraged now than at any time in my 53 years at the national level of the conservative movement.

As I point out in my recent book Takeover, limited government conservatives are winning.

I was with Young Americans for Freedom in Washington, D.C. in 1964 after Goldwater’s massive loss, when there was a darkness in the conservative movement of Biblical proportions that continued through Nixon’s resignation in 1974. Then our arch enemy Nelson Rockefeller became Vice President, followed in 1976 by Ronald Reagan’s defeat for the nomination and Jimmy Carter’s election as President.

During most of the 1970s I felt that I wouldn’t be surprised to see plagues of locusts, frogs, flies and boils appear.

And remember, in the 1960s and 1970s we did not have talk radio (Rush, Hannity, Levin, Laura Ingraham, etc.), cable TV (Fox News), and the Internet.

We did have Ronald Reagan, but not much else. Today, we have Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Congressmen Louie Gohmert, Jeb Hensarling, Jim Jordan, Justin Amash, Tim Huelskamp and others.

And we have numerous promising governors including Mike Pence, Scott Walker, Sam Brownback, Bobby Jindal, and Suzanna Martinez.

And we certainly didn’t have the TEA Party and its millions of supporters.

One reason some conservatives are discouraged is because of some high-profile primary defeats this year.

But remember that about 95% of TEA Party/conservative victories in the last few years have come in open races – with no incumbent. It’s exceedingly difficult to beat an incumbent in a primary.

But even though conservatives defeated few incumbents, this primary season we did defeat the Republican House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor.
