Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, predicted last week that the Ebola virus will not be contained in West Africa, and if infected people flee those countries and spread the disease to Central and South America, it could cause “mass migration into the United States” of those seeking treatment.

“If it breaks out, it’s literally, ‘Katie bar the door,’ and there will be mass migration into the United States,” Kelly said in remarks to the National Defense University on Tuesday. “They will run away from Ebola, or if they suspect they are infected, they will try to get to the United States for treatment.

“The potential spread of Ebola into Central and Southern America is a real possibility,” the article written about the general’s speech and posted on the Department of Defense website on Wednesday stated.

CNN Goes Racist On Gun Owners

Why is it that the liberals and anti-gunners are so focused on race all the time? It was just over a year ago that some buffoon working at Bloomberg.com, Francis Wilkinson, went off on a similar wild tangent based solely on his observations of what people looked like in the three gun magazines he bought at a news stand. Those observations of his were what his entire article, “Guns are for White People”, was based on. I later countered his racist observations when I wrote a response, in which I pointed out all the non-white people responsible for producing just one of those magazines he selected.

And now the folks over at CNN are jumping into the same tired game with the same tired claim; that guns are for white people, with their piece titled “Does race shape America’s passion for guns?” Here is the opening to their article:

What if large groups of African-American men carrying shotguns and semi-automatic rifles started moseying into stores across America to tout their support of open-carry gun laws?

Would they be greeted by the same anxious looks shoppers gave groups of armed white men who did the same this summer at Target stores and chain restaurants like Chipotle? Or something more lethal?

To be fair, later in the article the author, John Blake, does eventually appear to try and examine at both sides of the coin. The problem however, is the same problem I see with many journalists and most “intellectuals” (code for people with no real world experience). He is looking at the situation from an outside perspective, from his shiny office, and he discusses the issue by speaking with people who have nothing to do with the gun community or industry, such as sociologists, researchers and professors. If you are going to discuss gun ownership, should you not actually talk to gun owners? Call me crazy…

The FBI’s bogus report on mass shootings

The FBI’s bogus report on mass shootings

It’s disheartening to see the FBI used to promote a political agenda, but that’s what we got with the bureau’s release last month of a study claim to show a sharp rise in mass shootings, a la Newtown, Conn.

The FBI counted 160 “mass” or “active” shootings in public places from 2000 to 2013. Worse, it said these attacks rose from just one in 2000 to 17 in 2013. Media outlets worldwide gave the “news” extensive coverage.

Too bad the study is remarkably shoddy — slicing the evidence to distort the results. In fact, mass public shootings have only risen ever so slightly over the last four decades.

While the FBI study discusses “mass shootings or killings,” its graphs were filled with cases that had nothing to do with mass killings. Of the 160 cases it counted, 32 involved a gun being fired without anyone being killed. Another 35 cases involved a single murder.

It’s hard to see how the FBI can count these incidents, which make up 42 percent of its 160 cases, as “mass killings.” They plainly don’t fit the FBI’s old definition, which required four or more murders, nor even its new one of at least three murders.

And these non-mass shootings, with zero or one person killed, drive much of the purported increase in the number of attacks. If you consider cases where no one or only one person was killed, 50 came in the last seven years of the period the FBI examined and only 17 during the first seven years.

Leaning Forward: MSNBC Ratings Now in Death Spiral (Please DIE Already!)

Rachel Maddow, the biggest star on the MSNBC cable network, just posted her lowest quarterly ratings results ever.

“Morning Joe,” MSNBC’s signature morning program, scored its second-lowest quarterly ratings, reaching an average of just 87,000 viewers in the key news demographic group.

And “Ronan Farrow Daily,” the network’s heavily promoted new afternoon show, which stars a 26-year-old Rhodes Scholar with a high-profile Hollywood lineage, has been largely a dud.

Though it has mostly happened quietly, which may be a comment on the cable network’s larger status in the media landscape, MSNBC has seen its ratings hit one of the deepest skids in its history, with the recently completed third quarter of 2014 generating some record lows.

Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, acknowledged that his network had been struggling, but put it in the context of the overall drop in cable news. “This has been a tough year all around,” he said. “All three cable news channels are drawing a smaller combined audience than they were five years ago.” He also emphasized that despite the plunge that caused it to trail CNN in the last quarter, the network remained ahead of CNN for the full year.

In the past, MSNBC’s ratings have typically fallen during times of intensely followed major news events. The current period is awash in them, with stories like ISIS and Ebola commanding a high degree of international reporting. This plays well to CNN’s strengths.

MSNBC consciously established its brand as politics-centric, approaching stories from a left-of-center viewpoint, in deliberate contrast to the right-of-center approach of Fox News, which continues to dominate the news channel ratings. At the same time, MSNBC moved away from a close relationship with NBC News that it had during the early years of the network. Today, fewer NBC News correspondents appear on MSNBC.

Decorated Air Force veteran and firearms expert Timothy Arnold was convicted in the United States District Court of Southern Georgia on January 21 of manufacturing and dealing in firearms without a license, transporting illegally-acquired firearms to a state in which he did not reside, dealing firearms across state lines without a license, and theft of government property by conversion.

The prosecution, led by Assistant United States Attorney Fred Kramer, claimed Arnold was running a “black market operation” while he was a well-known firearms instructor with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI) at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in Brunswick, Georgia. FLETC is part of the Department of Homeland Security and trains law enforcement officers for 91 federal agencies, including the U.S. Park Police and U.S. Marshals Service.

Joe Biden just can’t stop putting his foot in his mouth.

This time, Biden basically said that what the gun control movement needs is another high profile victim to push its message of civilian disarmament.

According to the Washington Times,

Vice President Joseph R. Biden said Friday the nation needs another high-profile, respected spokesman for gun control who is able to convince fearful members of Congress to buck the National Rifle Association and other organizations and vote for firearms restrictions.

King Lear, strippers, and show horses: Inside the $500 million lawsuit that could bring down Gaston Glock’s gun empire

Guns, money, sex, and betrayal: Rarely do the news gods smile down on us with such charity. But Helga Glock, ex-wife to Gaston Glock Sr., the gun industry’s most successful and secretive tycoon, has given us all that and then some with a new lawsuit filed in an Atlanta federal court earlier this week.

In the complaint—filed in Georgia, where the Austrian company’s U.S. headquarters is based and most of its business conducted—Mrs. Glock’s attorney accuses the 85-year-old gun manufacturer of a racketeering scheme that spanned decades and the globe, all in an elaborate plan to steal the business that Mrs. Glock and the rest of their family had helped to build from a mom-and-pop machine shop into a company with $400 million in sales each year. An enterprise so successful—it supplies U.S. police with two-thirds of their firearms and dominates the civilian market—that Mr. Glock’s criminal dealings have cheated her out of around $500 million, the suit claims, making the case one of the largest civil suits ever under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act.

This isn’t the first time the Glocks’ legal dramas have played out in the media.

The family’s dirty laundry was aired in 2011 during divorce proceedings that would end the Glocks’ 49-year-long, if not happy then lucrative, relationship. The short story: After Glock suffered a stroke in 2008, his nurse-slash-mistress Katrin Tschikof, 50 years his junior, restricted the family’s access to the ailing magnate. And in a tale more suited for TMZ than The Wall Street Journal, by 2010, Gaston Glock had locked his wife out of their mansion in Austria, fired his three children—Brigitte, Gaston Jr., and Robert—from the family business, and stopped speaking to his grandchildren.

Helga and Gaston’s divorce was final on June 28, 2011. By the following day, Mrs. Glock (she kept her name) was no longer a part of the company. He married Tschikof later that year and appointed her to the company’s advisory board.

It would be simple to frame Helga Glock’s newest court battle as one brought by a lover scorned. But this is strictly a business case, her Atlanta lawyer, John Da Grosa Smith, told The Daily Beast.

According to the poll, the states most residents would be willing to leave include much of the northeast. Illinois tops the list with 50% of respondents saying they would move, followed by Connecticut (49%), Maryland (47%), Nevada (43%), Rhode Island (42%), New Jersey (41%), New York, (41%), Massachusetts (40%), Louisiana (40%), and Mississippi (39%).

Interestingly, while Illinoisans are most willing to leave their state in a general context, 20% of Nevadans said they are extremely, very, or somewhat likely to leave their state in the next 12 months. Illinois came in second on that list with 19% of respondents saying they are likely to move in the next year.

Chicago Crime Rate Drops, Thanks To Concealed Carry

Tags: No Tags

Published on: October 11, 2014

Since Illinois began issuing concealed-carry permits this year, robberies, burglaries, car thefts and, yes, even murder, are down significantly.

Last month, when an 86-year-old Crestwood, Ill., man decided to visit his local phone store, he arrived to find a robbery underway. After staying outside to keep others from entering the store, he saw the suspect fleeing through a back door. He pursued the suspect, legal firearm in hand, stopped him, then held him until police arrived to make the arrest.

The actions of the unidentified law-abiding citizen were made possible by Illinois becoming the 50th and final state to enact a concealed-carry law, legislation that, as it has done nationwide, coincides with a precipitous drop in the Chicago crime rate.

Chicago Police Superintendent Gerry McCarthy, at a recent city council hearing, reported the good news of less crime. He credited better police work, but there’s another factor McCarthy left unstated — the increase in the number of pistol-packing permits that let citizens defend themselves, their families and their neighbors. The law has left criminals uncertain of who might be able to shoot back.

“It isn’t any coincidence that crime rates started to go down when concealed carry was permitted,” Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association, said in the Washington Times.

“Just the idea that criminals don’t know who is armed and who isn’t has a deterrent effect. The police department hasn’t changed a single tactic — they haven’t announced a shift in policy — and you have these incredible numbers.”

Gun Range Moves in Next Door to School, Boundless Libtard Hysteria Ensues

Rancho Cordova

Rancho Cordova, California, students are up in arms—so to speak—about a gun range moving in next door to their high school. The range is indoor—no stray bullets will be pelting classroom windows—but students, teachers, and administrators all believe the mere presence of a gun club so close to a school is inherently dangerous.

Why? I have no earthly idea.

The community’s explanation is an insistent it just is! From cbslocal.com:

Students from George Washington Carver High protested what is already on its way.

“Even though it’s legal, it’s still wrong. you shouldn’t mix schools with guns,” said student Damon Kalerkorinos.

He helped organized the protest of students against the new shooting range being developed just about 250 feet away from their campus.

“It’s just not safe to have a gun club so close to a school,” he said.

Principal Allegra Allesandri says a new gun club so close is wrong, citing weapon-free zones designed to keep schools safe.

But weapons-free zones don’t make schools any safer than they already are; people who intend to commit violence in schools won’t be deterred by felony weapons charges. Instead, Allesandri and Kalerkorinos must have some unfounded belief that mere proximity to a gun causes otherwise healthy people to lose their minds and resort to violence. There isn’t any merit to that argument, either.

The Failure of Banning So-Called Assault Weapons

Published on: October 11, 2014

Whenever I’m asked about gun control and “assault weapons,” my first instinct is to steer people to the scholarly work of John Lott or the practical analysis of Larry Correia.

Unfortunately, some politicians in Washington haven’t gotten the message.

Here are excerpts from an article in the Pacific Standard, starting with a claim from Senator Feinstein that gun control works.

In the 10 years since the federal assault weapons ban expired, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) has kept trying to renew the law, which she authored. In a press release this month honoring the 20th anniversary of the ban, she wrote, “The evidence is clear: the ban worked.”

So let’s look at what the experts say.

…gun violence experts say the exact opposite. “There is no compelling evidence that it saved lives,” Duke University public policy experts Philip Cook and Kristin Goss wrote in their book The Gun Debate: What Everyone Needs to Know. A definitive study of the 1994 law—which prohibited the manufacture and sale of semiautomatic guns with “military-style features” such pistol grips or bayonet mounts as well as magazines holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition—found no evidence that it had reduced overall gun crime or made shootings less lethal. “We cannot clearly credit the ban with any of the nation’s recent drop in gun violence,” the Department of Justice-funded study concluded in 2004.

Bloomturd Gives $1m to WA Expanded Background Check Ballot Measure

Michael Bloomberg, jefe of Everytown for Gun Safety (courtesy nydailynews.com)Washington State is ground zero in gun control advocates’ campaign to “expand” mandatory government background checks to all firearms purchases and transfers (including gun shows and family gifts). Come November, Evergreen State voters will either OK or torpedo Initiative 594. Quite how this increased government surveillance would reduce firearms-related crime is anybody’s guess. It certainly hasn’t had any measurable impact in Massachusetts or California. Regardless, billionaire Steve Ballmer’s donated $600,000. Bill Gates has chipped in $1m to the pro-Initiative 594 campaign. Not be outdone, billionaire ballistic bully boy Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety has also ante’d up a cool mil. seattletimes.com reports that the group spending the money is…

The Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility, which has now raised about $7 million total. [They] issued a statement that read, in part: “We are grateful that Everytown’s coalition of Washington mayors, moms and 45,000 grassroots supporters is with us in the fight to pass this sensible measure.”

Sleazy Giffords Hubby Mark Kelly Lies About Gun Sales Before Washington’s I-594 Vote

(AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, file)<br />

On Tuesday, five weeks before voters in Washington State will decide whether to require “universal” background checks on firearm transfers, gun control advocate Mark Kelly lied on national television about how many such transactions occur without a background check. Asked by CNN, Kelly said (at 3:30 in the video), “right now 60 percent of all gun sales go–occur–with a background check. Why do we allow the 40 percent, the other 40 percent, to happen?”

Kelly and his wife, former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, are the co-founders of the gun control group, Americans for Responsible Solutions. On their group’s website, they make the “40 percent” claim in its most common form, saying “up to 40 percent of all gun transfers . . . take place without a background check.”

However they choose to word it, the claim is false, and even the media have been saying so for more than two years. In July 2012, the Tampa Bay Times faulted Michael Bloomberg for claiming “There’s a loophole where you can sell guns without a background check at a gun show. Forty percent of guns are sold that way, same thing on the internet.”

Bloomberg said that the “40 percent” figure came from a study co-authored by gun control supporter Philip Cook in 1997 (a year before the national instant check system became operational). However, Times’ PolitiFact reporters Jon Greenberg and Molly Moorhead asked Cook if he considered the “40 percent” figure to be a reliable estimate of secondary market gun sales currently. Cook’s response, as Greenberg and Moorhead reported, was “I have no idea. This survey was done almost 20 years ago.”

Unfortunately, anti-gun activists are not only willing to say just about anything to get “universal” checks imposed, they are willing to say it often, because they believe it’s the stepping stone to the gun control restrictions they ultimately seek.

Shrill Leftard Joel Mathis Whines About How the NRA is Winning in Pennsylvania

Pussified hot mess: Joel Mathis.

 

If you needed any further proof that the pussification of the USA is real, look no further than Joel Mathis, Associate Editor of the

Joel, like many of his fellow travelers, pretends he is a journalist, when in fact he’s just a drone in the Democrat-Journalist Machine.

In his recent missive against gun rights “The NRA Wants Your Submission” he shrieks:

“The NRA is coming, folks. It will have your tax dollars or your submission to its pro-gun agenda — and, by God, maybe it will have both.

Don’t believe me? Then take a look at the text of House Bill 1243, which passed the Pennsylvania House this week, and which now sits before the Senate Judiciary Committee waiting passage.

Here’s what the bill does: It discourages Pennsylvania cities and municipalities from passing gun laws that are more restrictive than state-level gun laws, or from keeping such laws that are already on the books.

Here’s how the bill does that: It lets people sue Pennsylvania cities and municipalities with those too-restrictive gun ordinances.

And here’s who can sue: Gun owners — as well as any “membership organization” whose members are gun owners in compliance with state law, whether or not those members have actually run afoul of the local laws or not, or whether they even care or not.

That’s right: “Membership organization.” While the definition could, I suppose, technically apply to the Boy Scouts, we all know what House Bill 1243 really means: It gives the NRA the right to sue Pennsylvania’s cities and municipalities.

Which means that even if nobody in Philadelphia dislikes or considers themselves adversely affected by the city’s gun laws, that’s OK: The NRA can sue — and it can win without having to show that anybody actually had their rights violated.

That’s astonishing. It’s appalling. And it’s also utterly unsurprising. The NRA doesn’t just represent our fellow citizens anymore: Under this legislation, it effectively becomes one of those fellow citizens.”

Why do lefty journalists always try to portray a group of like minded individuals like NRA as sinister, when they extoll the virtues of their activist groups like moveon.org or Bloomturd’s pet project Everytown for Gun Safety? Do they really believe their own hypocritical foolishness?

Of course, Joel never bothered to present in his shrill hitpiece the reality that many democrat controlled cities invalidate the gun rights enshrined in their state constitution, and that these cities have been denying rights to their citizens illegally for decades.

Nor does he mention that groups like the NRA and SAF are the only avenues left to us “little guys” who have been harassed and imprisoned by these same cities. Without money from pro-gun groups for legal fees we would be at the whim of some anti-gun fascists in the city council, who openly subvert their state constitutions. Many times we would be in jail for exercising our constitutional rights. Of course, that’s where passive-aggressive mental weaklings like Mathis want us to be!

I wonder if he would be so enthralled with legal preemption if this was a city curtailing the rights of homosexuals, when the state allowed for “gay marriage”? I doubt it. You see, I think Mathis is one of many in the media that like fascism – as long as it agrees with their opinions of the day. The problem is once the precedent has been set, eventually the machine starts kicking out laws that he will not like, but by then, it will be too late to stop the machine from completely terrorizing its citizens.

The issue of creeping government encroachment into personal freedom leading to fascism was best presented thusly:

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

Martin Niemöller

So, Joel will cheer the fascists onwards as long as they are imprisoning those he perceives as his political enemies. How civilized of him!

Joel Mathis is an intellectual lightweight parading as a journalist. His puerile commentary would be best suited in a High School newspaper. Yet, in our troubled, moronic, times he is what passes as one of our “betters”.

One of the comments under his whiny article sums it up best:
