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.

More Philly attention whoring

Posted: November 26, 2013 by doubleplusundead in This Is My BOOMSTICK!

The Soviet Enclave of Philadelphia is going to pass a law banning the manufacture of 3d printed firearms, which will immediately be challenged and nullified in court, because the Commonwealth has a preemption clause regarding gun laws, which as far as I can tell exists at this point specifically to rein in Philly.  Philly has been pulling this bullshit for years, they pass any number of bans and anti-2nd measures, then get slapped down in court.  Over and over.  This is nothing but political theatre from the commie smacktards running Philly.

And the Fox News article should have at the least noted the Commonwealth’s preemption laws regarding the right to bear arm, lazy reporting on their part.

I Did Not See That Coming

Oh wait, yes I did. So did we all.

So the whole point of the law was ostensibly to insure the uninsured. At least, that’s what was screeched at me over and over.

US hospitals are exploring ways to buy “Obamacare” insurance plans for their sickest and poorest patients as they strain under the weight of tens of billions of dollars in uncompensated costs from the uninsured.

But the move is opposed by the Obama administration…

Huh, weren’t those people the whole point of the whole fucking thing?

Why it’s almost as if everything they said about it was a lie!?!?!?!??!

Saw it at Ace’s.

Plant

This dude was a plant.  Little doubt in my mind.

The NBC evening news [spit!] dutifully “reported” that few hecklers get so close to the POTUS.  IIRC, I think they said that he was “invited”, which from what I can gather, means that the whole crowd was invited, and presumably subject to at least minimal vetting. (Also, as I search news articles for this story, I see some outlets are scrubbing the word “invited” from the text.)

Upon hearing this, I immediately became convinced this supposed heckler was a plant.

  • The heckler acts as an aesthetic foil, an angry voice countered by Obama’s calmness.
  • The heckler acts as a sympathetic character, who Obama can agree with on substance.
  • The heckler allows Obama to lie about following the law in a context unrelated to wanton lawlessness with Obamacare.
  • The heckler acts as a distraction from Obamacare, serving as a pivot vehicle.

And he just happened to get close to the President at this event…

A Drudgetaposition

Taxprofblog’s coverage of the 200th day of the IRS deal.

First story:

Scant evidence of fixes at IRS after scandal

Exactly as expected. I’ve been waiting for day 200 to write this post, I wasn’t sure it would be illustrated so perfectly but I should have expected it.

This kind of surprises me, usually Victor Davis Hanson notices reality much sooner and here he’s noticing that Obama’s peeing all over our real allies to suck up to our enemies.

A Puppy Blender linked VDH comment at the Corner.

Will allies like Japan or South Korea feel that the U.S. has reasserted its old global clout, or further worry that their patron might engage in secret talks with, say, China rather than reemphasize their security under the traditional U.S. umbrella?

Yeah, I bet Japan is just starting to worry about that.

Senior U.S. administration officials held secret talks in North Korea on at least three occasions in 2011 and 2012, The Asahi Shimbun has learned.

Although the visits had potential implications for Japan, Washington did not inform its security partner at the time and only informally confirmed one of them when the Japanese side pressed, government and other sources in Japan, South Korea and the United States said.

 

So what did Obama do when Japan said, “WTF dude?”

The U.S. State Department even warned the Foreign Ministry against making further inquiries, saying they would harm bilateral relations, the sources said.

 

That’s diplospeak for “STFU”.

So yeah, I imagine SoKo, Japan, Taiwan and the Philippines are all pretty sure Obama will sell them out and  they’re on their own when China gets frisky just as Poland (Obama canceled Poland’s missile shield deal on the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion (not Nazi) at the beginning of WWII) and the rest of eastern Europe know they’re on their own when Tsar Putin I gets frisky.

That’s pretty much a given at this point.
