Anti-Gun Obama Lies

Being able to own a gun doesn’t matter much if you have nowhere to buy them and nowhere to shoot them.

Obama has a very strong history of endorsing both Nowhere outcomes – total bans.
Some Obama-prone stoner-voters suggest that all they are concerned about is what he says he is going to do in the FUTURE – not at all about his past positions. That dear friends is the Kool-Aid talking, because that kind of belief in the lowliest scum of American Political Life – The Politician – can only come about through a scary and toxic level of delusion and denial.
The ONLY thing you can ever believe about a politician is what they have done in the past, and with whom they have spent time doing that. Ayers, Rezko, Wright, ACORN – keep it coming because it matters more than a hazy-bright Unicorn-filled rhetorical rainbow-Future. He lies about one thing, so what else might he be lying about?

Pro-Guns and the 2nd Amendment? He served on the board of the Joyce Foundation, the largest private funder of anti-gun research in the country where he endorsed a systematic campaign to undermine the 2nd Amendment with phony, paid-for, “scholarship” in legal journals in an effort to tip the balance of written material – the academic equivalent of stuffing the Ballot Box, the ACORN of Legalistical Academe. While a board member of the Joyce Foundation, Barack Obama wrote checks for tens of millions of dollars to extremist gun control organizations such as the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence and the Violence Policy Center.

“Sportsman For Obama”?? Sorry all you cammo-clad weekend woodsmen, hunting don’t mean a thing. Oh ya-sure you spends a lotta money!! So? Da Comrad! You could also go hunting in The Soviet Union if you had the right connections.

Take history for example (and read) Richard Pearson who knew him well.

I lobbied Barack Obama extensively while he was an Illinois State Senator. As a result of that experience, I know Obama’s attitudes toward guns and gun owners better than anyone. The truth be told, in all my years in the Capitol I have never met a legislator who harbors more contempt for the law-abiding firearm owner than does Barack Obama…
While a state senator, Obama voted for a bill that would ban nearly every hunting rifle, shotgun and target rifle owned by Illinois citizens. That same bill would authorize the state police to raid homes of gun owners to forcibly confiscate banned guns.
Obama supported a bill that would shut down law-abiding firearm manufacturers including Springfield Armory, Armalite, Rock River Arms and Les Baer. Obama also voted for a bill that would prohibit law-abiding citizens from purchasing more than one gun per month….
At the same time, Obama has proven himself to be a friend to the hardened criminal. While a state senator, Obama voted 4 times against legislation that would allow a homeowner to use a firearm in defense of home and family.(emphasis)

We are Doomed – to Socialism and to Hell

No wonder I woke-up nauseous and with a headache – it’s must be my psychic-hotline calling-in.

When you see these guys doing this, these nasty Clowns – it’s time to raise the black flag…

Kevin’s favorite quote (6:20-7:08 in the video.):

Mr. Raines: $1.1 million bonus on a $526,000 salary. Jamie Gorelick: $779,000 bonus on a salary of $567,000. This is… What you state on page 11 is nothing less than staggering. “The 1998 earnings per share value turned out to be three dollars and twenty-three cents and nine mills ($3.239) – a result that Fannie Mae met the max, the EPS maximum payout goal right down to the penny.

“Fannie Mae understood the rules and simply chose not to follow them, if Fannie Mae had followed the, the practices, there wouldn’t have been a bonus that year.”

As Ace says,

I think the worst thing about this bailout plan is it makes it nearly impossible to argue for free market solutions to problems going forward. Regardless of how much of the $700 Billion is actually spent or recouped, it will be thrown in the faces of people who say, ‘let the markets work’.

UPDATE (from my friend The Conservative UAW Guy):

“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

Looking in at the party of elites through the farmhouse window, the common animals can no longer tell which are the pigs and which are the human beings.

Obama’s Goon Squad Repudiated by Governor

Saturday, September 27, 2008

JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

“This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.

“Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts – not a free society.”

FactCheck Lies Paid-for by the Annenberg Foundation

In Comments Brigid notes: Just last year, FactCheck’s primary funding source, the Annenberg Foundation, also gave $50,000 to the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence for “efforts to reduce gun violence by educating the public and by enacting and enforcing regulations governing the gun industry.” Annenberg made a similar grant for $100,000 in 2005. I wonder if any of the Annenberg Foundation money made it to the phony, lying, astroturf, “American Hunters and Shooters Association” who purport to support shooting but don’t.

Rewriting History – $6.5 TRILLION collapse and all I got was this lousy Taxpayer Funded t-shirt?

Former Enron CEO and Bush Contributor Ken Lay presided over a measly $65 Billion collapse and no taxpayer bailout. Meanwhile Fannie Mae CEO’s, weighing in with a $6.5 Trillion collapse and with a taxpayer bailout. The Center for Responsive Politics keeps track of which politicians get Fannie and Freddie political contributions. The top three U.S. Senators getting big Fannie and Freddie political bucks were Democrats and number two is Senator Barack Obama.

Two guys who presided over the biggest financial disaster in modern times are shielded by Democrats who’s policies they supported and encouraged. Ken Lay (deceased) became famous and was the subject of numerous SNL skits. Will the same fate befall these two, and what the hell do they look like? Jim Johnson, Former Fannie Mae CEO/Lehman Executive and now Obama Campaign Advisor/Contributor – Beginning in January of 1990 and continuing through December 1999 he was employed by Fannie Mae. He served as Vice Chairman (1990), Chairman and CEO (1991-1998), and Chairman of the Executive Committee (1999). Prior to joining Fannie Mae, Johnson was a managing director in corporate finance at Lehman Brothers. Before joining Lehman (now defunct), he was the president of Public Strategies, a Washington-based consulting firm he founded to advise corporations on strategic issues. Jim Johnson who was asked by Senator Barack Obama to start the search for a viable Vice Presidential candidate. Johnson did the same job for John Kerry in 2004 and Walter Mondale in 1984.

Franklin Raines, Former Fannie Mae CEO who served as White House budget director under President Bill Clinton, is currently employed by Barack Obama’s Presidential Campaign as an economic adviser. In 2005 Fannie Mae’s regulator reported that the company’s quarterly reports of profit growth over the past few years were “illusions deliberately and systematically created” by the company’s senior management, which resulted in a $10.6 Billion accounting scandal. The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight’s report goes on to say that Fannie Mae employees deliberately and intentionally manipulated financial reports to hit earnings targets in order to trigger bonuses for senior executives. In the case of Franklin Raines, Fannie Mae’s former chief executive officer, OFHEO’s report shows that over half of Mr. Raines’ compensation for the 6 years through 2003 was directly tied to meeting earnings targets. The report of financial misconduct at Fannie Mae echoes the deeply troubling $5 billion profit restatement at Freddie Mac.
In 2005 there was an itty-bitty oopsie $10.6 Billion problem.
In 2006, the OFHEO announced a suit against Raines in order to recover some or all of the $50 million in payments made to Raines based on the overstated earnings [4] initially estimated to be $9 billion but have been announced as 6.3 billion.[2]. In June 2008 Wall Street Journal reported that Franklin Raines was one of several politicians who received below market rates loans at Countrywide Financial (now in ruins) because the corporation considered the officeholders “FOA’s”–“Friends of Angelo” (Countrywide Chief Executive Angelo Mozilo). He received loans for over $3 million while CEO of Fannie Mae. [5] Franklin Raines is currently one of Barack Obama’s chief economic advisers. (my emphasis) Just going on how they so successfully glommed onto huge amounts of personal gain and cash-money, I’d say they were Uniters, united in the spirit of gainfulness…

That’s who’s advising Mr. Barak Obama on political policy and finance issues, not Ken Lay (who’s dead), who’s Non-Taxpayer-Bailout scandal was worth only a fraction of a percentage of these guy’s.

In short: Ken Lay, Enron, $65 Billion, no public bailout, congressional lynching – now he’s dead.
Compared to: Jim Johnson and Franklin Raines, CEO’s Fannie Mae, $6.5 TRILLION, taxpayer bailout to preserve a longtime Democrat-run DC feifdom and social engineering program, no hearings – Barak Obama’s advisors in politics, finance, and housing…

Oh great, just great.

UPDATE: Source/Cite – OpenSecrets.Org Link (and above) of top Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac recipients – Barak’s #2!
What about Clinton’s own Jamie Gorelick, Mistress of Disaster? Reportedly an Obama choice for Attorney General?
Author of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy – and also author of The Wall, the policy which prevented the foreign intelligence and criminal investigative communities from collaborating, easing the path for terrorists to 9/11.
Jamie Gorelick who also had a direct hand in the mortgage securitization debacle.

In 1999 Fannie Mae announced that it would purchase $10B in CRA loans. In 2001 they reached that target as Ms. Gorelick announced that they would roll these into special security issues.

“Our approach to our lenders is `CRA Your Way’,” Gorelick said. “Fannie Mae will buy CRA loans from lenders’ portfolios; we’ll package them into securities; we’ll purchase CRA mortgages at the point of origination; and we’ll create customized CRA-targeted securities. This expanded approach has improved liquidity in the secondary market for CRA product, and has helped our lenders leverage even more CRA lending. Lenders now have the flexibility to use their own, customized loan products,” Gorelick said.

ChangeHope? I don’t think so…

Expanding the Ammo Ban – what they will try in Your State next

In an effort to destroy Liberty and enslave a large part of the Nation under a banner of communal collectivism, our gang of smug idiots in Sacramento, the Assembly Public Safety Committee, has decided on an illegal and backdoor means to derail the 2nd Amendment by registering ammunition owners. Assembly Bill 2062.

On March 25th a bunch of cretins who can’t budget themselves out of a wet paper bag will consider legislation that would require gun owners to submit to a background check, pay a $35 fee, wait as long as 30 days to receive a “permit-to-purchase” before buying handgun ammunition, and impose severe restrictions on the private transfers of handgun ammunition including criminalizing monthly limits and transfers, even between family members – which I’m pretty sure means spouses too.

Under this vastly expanded Reach of Gubbmint Bureaucracy, permit-holder “Vendors” (ammunition owners, really) would be required to contact the purchase-permit database to verify the validity of a permit before completing a sale or transfer. All ammunition sales in the State of California would be subject to a $3 per transaction tax, and mail order ammunition sales would be prohibited. Any violator of AB2062 would be subject to civil fines.

You can thank State Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45) for the crock of rotting, stinking, festering unmitigated gall-brain-bladder that is Assembly Bill 2062, that puts ammunition sales in jeopardy and ownership at Criminal risk.
