I recently received an odd, frantic email from some wannabe politico in search of a conservative blogger who would write a column about Obamacare and jobs to save Tom Corbett’s re-election campaign from itself. As if such a Column to End All Columns could be written.

I don’t want to be too hard on this fellow, as I too sometimes suffer from wannabe-ism. Far less so than in the past, as I become more jaded and more likely to just give up and flee the state. I have little hope for an electorate that thought “binders full of women” was a substantive and revealing gotcha against Romney. I’m still not even exactly sure what that binders thing was all about.

Yeah, I watch Wheel of Fortune every now and then.

I forgot the part that made me think of that title.

Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission, where I am a commissioner, does not agree. Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run.

It’s getting difficult and slinking toward impossible to defend the Affordable Care Act…

Well, we passed that stage a long time ago for anybody noticing reality, this guy actually had the lack of sense to write this.

The White House has politicized its signature policy.

Seriously? They just politicized it? Fool.

I’ve always been in favor of freedom of expression, but lately I’ve become a free-speech absolutist. It takes all sorts to make a world and I’ve met a lot of them over the years, and I can stand pretty much anything anyone says about anything — until someone says to me, “You can’t say that.” At which point my inclination is to punch his lights out. I do this not just because I’m a violent psychopath with a hair-trigger temper, but to make the important point that in societies where you’re not free to speak your mind — to argue and debate — the only way to express disagreement is through violence.

Eggs-fucking-zactly. Steyn usually gets it just right.

Following numerous reports of improper arrests and firearm seizures throughout California, Roseville-based gun rights group The Calguns Foundation has issued a new warning to gun owners in the Golden State.

“Gun confiscation efforts pushed by Attorney General Kamala Harris have apparently led to unconstitutional arrests of regular, non-prohibited gun owners as well as the seizure of their firearms and ammunition,”

Registration always leads to confiscation, but you’d know that if you ever read this blog.

Gov. Scott Walker used his election-year State of the State address Wednesday to rally support for his plans to use the majority of Wisconsin’s $912 million in unexpected revenue for tax cuts.

The shooter at Arapahoe High School (not going to name him, he doesn’t deserve the recognition) came armed for massacre, including extra ammunition, a machete, and Molotov cocktails. It’s fairly obvious from the amount of weaponry carried that the shooter had no intentions of simply killing his debate coach. Few news outlets are reporting on why the attack was cut short, though. It wasn’t because the targeted debate coach had left the school, and it wasn’t because the shooter suddenly had an attack of conscience.

The reason the shooter suddenly stopped his attack and killed himself was because Arapahoe High School had an armed school resource officer who confronted him. The shooter felt he was cornered and killed himself.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson had this to say:

We believe that the response from the  school resource officer … was absolutely critical to the fact that we did not have additional injury and/or death in this particular matter.

I think we have our proof of concept for armed school officers saving lives.

Yes, it can happen here.

Oh, those weapons you were kind enough to tell us you had?  Yeah, we changed our minds, you can’t have those any more.

Some group up in Seattle called Washington CeaseFire has joined with that city’s mayor, Mike McGinn, to start a program where local businesses can become magnets for violent criminals Gun Free Zones by signing a pledge and putting a nifty target decal in their windows.

Now, this is hardly the first place to try this idea, but I love the fact that even the moonbat geniuses behind this scheme seem to have a slight inkling about how this might turn out:

“We’re making a statement as a community” said Washington CeaseFire Board President Ralph Fascitelli. “We know this won’t stop someone determined to cause violence, but we hope that standing together and giving businesses a tool to say no to guns will change the conversation around gun violence. Maybe our message will even make it to Olympia – we need better tools now to stop gun violence in our community.”

Well, I’m sure it’s a comfort to know that if you happen to die on the job during the course of an armed robbery or when somebody’s angry, unhinged ex shows up looking for blood, “maybe” the conversation will have changed or a message will make it somewhere or something. And, hey, “tools” will have been used. Metaphorical tools, which are the best kind.

Yeah.

If Toomey made a deal with the devil Bloomberg, as many suspect, it’s already biting him in the butt.

The deal, I presume, was that MAIG would stop running the “bad” ad.

Ok, great.

But now they’re running a “good” ad.  A kiss of death ad.  An ad that will continually remind every GOP primary voter what he did, twisting the knife a little.

Deals with the devil never really turn out the way you hope.

I am kind of busy today, but I still birled the tubes so here’s some endy, some funny and some hotassery.

Turkey welcomes Israel apology for defending against terrorist flotilla!

Turkish PM Backtracks On Obama-Brokered Deal With Netanyahu.

Shit, now we have to apologize to Israel for two things. First, Obama getting Netanyahu to apologize to terrorists enableers, and now this.

Poor bastards.

Lebanon’s gov’t dissolves itself. I figure Hezbollah will move in. Oh well, they had their Cedar Revolution and they allowed Jew-hatred to fuck it up.

Global worming attacks Ukraine!

Heavy snow, extremely rare for late March, virtually paralyzed traffic in Kyiv, and led to many international flights out of the city’s airports delayed and cancelled.

I wonder if Al Gore was in the neighborhood.

A week or two ago I had a story about how Britain Airstrip One investigated the assassination of one of Tsar Putin’s enemies in London and they hid the results (Ignorance is Strength!). Tsar Putin I shows his gratitude as only a Bond-Villain/KBG Agent/Tsar can.

Boris Berezovsky, the Russian oligarch who helped broker Vladimir Putin’s rise to the Kremlin’s top job only to become his fierce enemy, has been found dead at his home in Britain in unclear circumstances.

Eh, so does that mean Oceania is…has always been at war with Eurasia?

Via Samizdata, more Airstrip One news, some friend of O’Brien’s had this to say about their new restrictions on free speech, journalism and blogging.

Headline of the op-ed.

Press regulation: the royal charter deal is a move towards a better democracy

believe there is a need to totally re-evaluate the way we look at the relationship between the media and democracy. … I believe our developing concept of a duty of care should be extended to “a care” for our shared but fragile democratic values.

Freedom Is Slavery!

I was wrong, the Senate did pass a budget. It appears to be so full of poisoned pills that any Dem senator due for reelection next year voted against itand therefore, has no chance of being passed by the House so we still won’t have a budget.

I linked to Minitrue (The Hill) just for this quote though

Democrats had been dogged by criticism for failing to approve a budget resolution since 2009 and the vote removes that GOP talking point from the political scene.

Assholes. GOP talking point? That should be journalists’ talking point, you assholes pretend to be “impartial” even as you just root for your chosen side.

Fuck you.

Speaking of worrying about being reelected, we see these assholes are not worried and if people would pay attention they should be.

The list of 20 GOP senators who voted to fund Obamacare. Some of the usual suspects, Chambliss, Hatch, Collins. Some I”m surprised like Cornyn and Isakson, and one I’m utterly shocked isn’t there, Fucking McCain. Of course, he’s up for reelection and I’m hoping his primary isn’t pretty.  One I’m confused about, is Murkewkskey an Independent?

Alexander (R-TN)          Barrasso (R-WY)
Blunt (R-MO)                   Boozman (R-AR)
Chambliss (R-GA)         Coats (R-IN)
Cochran (R-MS)            Collins (R-ME)
Corker (R-TN)                Cornyn (R-TX)

Hatch (R-UT)                  Hoeven (R-ND)
Isakson (R-GA)             Johanns (R-NE)
McConnell (R-KY)       Murkowski (R-AK)
Sessions (R-AL)            Shelby (R-AL)
Thune (R-SD)              Wicker (R-MS)

Fuck you Mitch McConnell. You especially are a slimy piece of shit. I look forward to you voting yes on the Take Veeshir’s Guns bill you and Feinstein are figuring out now.

Speaking of which…..

From the Barrel of a Gun (blog) we see this.

It would be funny if it weren’t true.

Obama’s EPA helping bestialists.

NCBA and the National Pork Producers Council are both furious with EPA for handing extremist groups illegally gathered data on farmers who operate confined animal feeding operations.

Motherfucking assholes are out of fucking control, they care not for laws, propriety or anything but advancing their religion.

This one is interesting, the Senate voted against any UN “Take Veeshir’s Guns” Treaty.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) introduced an amendment that would prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in order to uphold the Second Amendment. His amendment passed on a 53-46 vote.

It worked on Kyoto, but this bit of good paranoia from my favorite ‘stan (SondraKistan) is good, paranoiac reading.

This is the conclusion, you’ll have to actually make with the clicky to read the build-up (Hint: It has to do with the DHS buying all the ammo in America so the Police can’t get any)

Okay, that’s all for now, people. I want a report on my desk in the morning to include:
1. How this might lead to a federal “civilian defense force.”
2. How this might lead to federal licensing of civilian ammunition purchases.
3. How this accommodates enforcement of the proposed UN arms treaty without a need to actually ratify it.

Good paranoia just keeps spreading, no one, and I  mean no one (most especially his allies), trusts Obama to even pay lip-service to the Constitution.
Wherein Veeshir agrees with Obama!

President Barack Obama says each of his proposed steps to reduce gun violence should get a vote in Congress _ even an assault weapons ban that both parties agree stands little chance at passing.

First, get this shit over with. Second, if it fails then good, if it passes, then good. We need the fucking showdown soon. Nickle and diming our rights away is pissing me off.

I do wonder why he said it in Jordan, is he trying to make jihadis understand he’s doing his best to disarm us for their attacks?

I cannot put anything, no matter how despicably murderous, past Mr Fast and Furious Benghazi.

Now, the hotassery, I believe this is the first actual sex show on DPUD!
