I don’t believe there was any “victory” today except for the Zoo-keeper bureaucrats of the Administrative Elite who feed Leviathan. Some people got what they wished-for, and now they’ll get more of it good and hard. Others wail and gnash their teeth, but they are really not on the menu. Now we have a Beast that can lay a golden egg, but we also have a beast that likes omelets. A “Government” that can give you anything you want is one that can AND WILL also take it away – because this monstrosity is made up of little people, predominantly with little ideas of their OWN self-worth and need to enrichen themselves, so rules and laws are bent to the occasion of their needs.
Update from Rick.
Our Overlords and Masters decline to agree with Liberty and the Constitution. Motion for 60 Day Stay in Mance v Holder It seems the Government is determined to fight against protecting our Civil Rights under the Constitution.
What is it about, “Justice delayed is Justice denied?” The wheels of Gov. and Bureaucracy grind slowly and inexorably when it suits them, but swiftly when the takings are ripe.
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS FORT WORTH DIVISION
FREDRIC RUSSELL MANCE, JR. et al.,
ERIC HOLDER, ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES, and B. TODD JONES, DIRECTOR, BUREAU OF ALCOHOL, TOBACCO, FIREARMS & EXPLOSIVES
Civil Action No. 4:14-CV-00539-O
DEFENDANTS’ MOTION FOR SIXTY-DAY STAY AND BRIEF IN SUPPORT
Defendants respectfully move for a stay of the Court’s Memorandum Opinion and Order dated February 11, 2015 [ECF No. 40] for 60 days, in order to allow adequate time for the government to determine whether to appeal the Court’s decision and, if so, whether to seek a stay pending appeal. The determination whether to appeal is entrusted by regulation to the Solicitor General of the United States.
See 28 C.F.R. § 0.20(b). The 60 days requested represents a modest amount of time for the Solicitor General to determine whether to appeal, after consultation with the affected governmental components.
See also 28 U.S.C. § 2107(b) (allowing 60 days for filing a notice of appeal when the federal government is a party). No undue prejudice will result to Plaintiffs from the short stay requested, as evidenced by the fact that Plaintiffs have not sought preliminary injunctive relief in this case. For the foregoing reasons, Defendants respectfully urge the Court to enter an order that stays the provisions of its Memorandum Opinion and Order dated February 11, 2015 for 60 days, until April 14, 2015. A proposed order is being submitted electronically in Word Perfect-compatible format to the Court’s “Orders” email address.

They already bought the votes, and paid good-money for ’em, so they weren’t NOT going to count them. Besides, as a famous(ly corrupt) windbag-person once said, “What Difference Does it Make?” Sleazebag pol and Anti-Gun attempted gun-runner Leland Yee Receives 10 Percent of the Vote in California…Only the winning Democrat (30.1 percent) and the more popular Republican candidate (29.6 percent) came in ahead.
Being a bit under the weather is a fine time to do some reading – between naps and old-people stuff – and so far have finished Bobbi’s I Work On A Starship and then went on to Jim’s The Grey Man: Vignettes (Volume 1) and after that (yesterday) finished Marko’s Terms of Enlistment before getting into Bill’s humongous tome, Lightning Fall: A Novel of Disaster – really all very well and seriously done works.
Bobbie get’s props for Space Nazis (!) and the very early years of Star-flight (had me going back to The Old Negro Space Program, almost) in such a detailed technical way that even the door-latched close with a realistic clang that even The USOS Seaview never had. I’m glad to say I have met two out of four of the writers, and hope to meet the rest sometime in a gun-fun situation.
Jim get’s props for being and knowing Real Americans as it were – and the Heart of Texas, plus some double-good take-down scenes as his Gray Man yarn goes from the dusty back-country to the high seas to political with romance and sniper-work thrown in for good measure, “Sling UP!”
Marko‘s works takes us through two military services, and then off-planet away from a dystopian soylent-green scenario to the siege of a space-colony under duress by alien weather-makers…
And Bill is quintessentially Bill – and good at it, weaving together multiple character POV’s, both good-guys and bad-guys and greasy politicians and people in-between, in a Tale of Destruction, as the US sags and collapses under the weight of a terrorist EMP attack. Only *I* have to get over the Beretta Tomcat, but/since he’s worked it well into the plot – and also I’m only on page 139.
Americans can watch on TV as their own “inherent right of self-defense” as represented by the 2nd Amendment is being stripped-away in hearing after hearing on Civilian Gun Control that exempts Law Enforcement and the DOJ. Meanwhile Obama’s promised “fundamental transformation of The United States” continues with the froo-froo concept of Due Process targeted and blown-up as a leaked white-paper from the Eric Holder DOJ is revealed to have secretly issued itself a (confidential) Justice Department go-ahead ruling that hammers out and justifies a rough, vague, and loose legal framework allowing #TheDroneProgram to go forward with the targeted killing of American citizens.
Calling it, “consistent with the inherent right of self-defense.” (but given the Administrations attack on the 2nd Amendment it seems to be reserved for the .Gov and Officialdom) Eric Holder claimed the such attacks are justified if the target poses “an imminent threat of violent attack.” Thus The government needs the approval of a judge to detain a suspected terrorist. To kill one, it need only give itself permission. The extrajudicial use of lethal force, away from any so-called ‘hot’ battlefield, can be used against a “Terrorist” – who can be almost anyone merely and secretly acccused by a single “well-informed high level administration official”, as they see fit… As Hina Shamsi of the American Civil Liberties Union said in a statement:
“This is a profoundly disturbing document, and it’s hard to believe that it was produced in a democracy built on a system of checks and balances. It summarizes in cold legal terms a stunning overreach of executive authority – the claimed power to declare Americans a threat and kill them far from a recognized battlefield and without any judicial involvement before or after the fact.”
Thanks to the Weekly Standard, the headline resonates with cross-aisle commingling: Some Dems Will Likely Join Republicans to Vote for Repeal.
Larry Kissell of North Carolina has already said he will vote for repeal. Kissell, who will also be skipping the Democratic National Convention in nearby Charlotte and has declined to endorse Barack Obama for president, voted against Obamacare in 2010 but also voted against repealing the law in 2011.
What modern people tend to forget (and think, “Oh my goodness, *how highly improbable!*”) is that the 15,000+ year old ancient pagan alignment of Earth-Mother worship always requires a blood sacrifice, hot or cold, adult or child, one way or the other – it’s Nature’s way and you can’t really “modernize” it with some superficial “tribal” tattoos and hipster moral equivalence. Something not even the much vilified Catholic Priests are accused-of. The Racist Progressives of a near-Century ago (and lingering today among the Elite), from Wilson to Dewey were as hip and modern and aligned and Educated as they could possible be, and practically worshiped Social Darwinism – partly out of self-interest because it put them at the cutting edge of the Social Awareness, and it was they who lead the charge of Eugenics to cleanse and detoxify the societal-body. The President of Stanford University (at who’s Junior-High named school I attended) wrote the damn book on it: The Blood of the Nation: A Study in the Decay of Races by the Survival of the Unfit. Can’t get much more West-Coast Progressive than that, supported by the moral-equivalent Unitarians who believe in God – or whatever you want to believe-in, here have a cup of coffee fellow, and shelter from the cold… And now they are trying to de-couple the historical link and frame it in another way to preserve their position among the Leadership Elites.
As some people have noticed, even the self-absorbed LA Times, some members of our California Stupidlslature think they should get themselves a hidden shoulder thing that goes up – for themselves but not for the rest of us. Au contraire.
As Danger Mouse pointed-out,
“City of Bell, Vernon, Cudahy and Maywood – bastions of political ethics and integrity. Who is their Assemblyman? Why, it’s John Perez, Speaker of the House!!!! Way to fly low and under the radar. Question to Mr.Perez: Has he had any contact or dealing any city official mentioned in his capacity? Would he mind opening his professional, campaign and personal finances up to public scrutiny.”
Perhaps the criminals in the Capitol don’t want the population to be able to defend themselves against their criminal enterprise?
These are the same people who can’t pass a budget, the same people who are in bed with and accept campaign funds from the same Unions, Industries and Developers they are supposed to “regulate.” These are the crooks and liars and scum of the Stupidslature.
They have already proven their financial incompetence and their political incompetence – should they demonstrate further incompetence in gun-handling? They already enjoy a level of on-call Police Protection that none of us get to have, and in the case of Citizens the Cops are indemnified against their own inaction but can be called-down when they mess-up a Politician’s security?
If these jerks are unable to trust the People with shall-issue concealed carry, why on earth should we trust them with a weapon – or even any financial instrument?
At first I was enamored by the surface of this protest, to see the reflection of my own handsome face in the mirror-pond, wearing my old Youth Brigade beret and flowing hair – and feel the immense rippling power of my collective awesomeness.
Then the waters actually did ripple and with consciousness I saw my balding Earthworm Jim visage, the thin gray chest hair, and my delusion of grandiosity died.
If there was ever a DoubleTalk-DoubleSpeak award this might get it.
If the googly-eyed pinchy botox-faced Nancy Pelosi, the sad-clown Communist Barbara Lee, and psychotically deranged Lynn Woolsey gave money to it, it must be self-serving.
If scumbucket George Soros is for it, beyond simply being bad it is very likely to be evil.
The Incumbents and Political Master-Class want their power back and the will pay millions in their effort to return control to themselves. They want to eliminate the little people who are on the Commission and return it to the untrustworthy, lying fat-cats of Incumbistan. For the greedy stupid Pasha’s to get their power back they preform Jihad on the electorate and Taqiyya. The lying.

17 Democratic congressmen either gave money directly to the campaign or whose campaign committees gave money:
Mike Honda, shame on you!
And it’s entirely partisan, no members of the Republican Party have made any move to support this bayotch, while members of the Democratic Party are bankrolling it either personally through their state senate or state assembly campaign committee, or through a ballot measure campaign committee set up with their name on it:
|Charles Calderon||State Assembly, District 58||Democrat||$100,000|
|Mike Eng||State Assembly, District 49||Democrat||$100,000|

Bastards! No to 27 – this stuff is the ugly sausage-factory of politics.
Re: Teh Debate, HT Rick at Traction Control, “If you get sick, you can go Bankrupt”, but in the Federal Plan, it will be cheaper and pre-existing conditions don’t count.
In other words, the policies that destroyed the mortgage industry and the worldwide economy can also bankrupt the medical industry.
