- In anticipation of an April 16 debate in Philadelphia on the anniversary of the Virginia Tech shootings, Obama told the Pittsburgh Tribune: "I am not in favor of concealed weapons. I think that creates a potential atmosphere where more innocent people could (get shot during) altercations."
- Obama's Web site says: "He will protect the rights of hunters and other law-abiding Americans to purchase, own, transport and use guns for the purposes of hunting and target shooting."
- Obama believes the D.C. handgun law (struck down by the Supreme Court last summer) is constitutional. More here.
Nothing would please the socialists and communists more than disarming America by having Obama and the left-wing Congress muscle through a federal law banning concealed carry... as a prelude to doing away with the Second Amendment entirely.
Think that can't happen...? Think again. There was a time not so long ago that you could buy surplus military rifles dirt cheap and the postman would deliver it to your house.
And remember, D.C. v Heller saved our "right to keep and bear arms" by a single vote.
Hummm, now that the multi-faceted coup has placed Obama in the Oval Office, the MSM has discovered a guy named Bill Ayers and the fact that The One lied his ass off about his relationship with the terrorist bomber and his murderous wife.
And now Ayers is now officially gloating:
In the afterword to an updated version of his 2001 memoir "Fugitive Days", Ayers describes Barack Obama as "a family friend," which contrasts with Obama's description of him as "a guy who lives in my neighborhood. -- American Thinker.
I say "murderous" because I believe Bernadine Dohrn is guilt of conspiring, constructing, transporting and placing the bomb that killed a young San Francisco police officer, Brian V. McDonnell in 1970, juts like I believe O.J. Simpson butchered two innocent people at 875 N. Bundy Drive.
Dohrn was on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list and J. Edgar Hoover called her "the most dangerous woman in America." There is no statute of limitations on murder and although there was not enough evidence against Dohrn almost 40 years ago, science may yet prove her guilt.
The powerful bomb packed with barbed wire fence post staples, was intended to kill and maim; pieced of the bomb were found three blocks distant atop a three-story school building.
Larry Grathwohl, a former FBI informant in the Weather Underground, has testified before Congress that Ayers told him at the time he was in the terrorist organization and that Dohrn had personally planted the devastating bomb.
Grathwohl said Ayers criticized his terrorist cell, claiming that there was "... a real problems was that someone like Bernardine Dohrn had to plan, develop and carry out the bombing of the police station in San Francisco, and he specifically named her as the person that committed that act.”
More from Media Memo on the MSM/Obama conspiracy to undermine McCain-Palin as Obama advisors prepped the air-brain Katie Couric for her Sarah Palin interviews :
Couric shed some light on her preparation for the interviews: Beforehand, she sought advice from former senator Sam Nunn and Council on Foreign Relations president Richard Haas. They told her to draw Palin out on her geopolitical worldview and urged her to let the governor speak at length without interrupting her. Maybe she should bring them along with her when she takes over at Meet the Press?”
Apparently Couric's question: "What do people read up in Alaska?"--like Alaska is part of the Neanderthal Federation--was one of her own.
And for all those gullible enough to fall for to the McCain cowards' and Obamedia character-assassins' conspiracy to knee-cap Gov. Palin... the truth will out and from the NYT yet, yeah--after the election is over:
"It was among the juicier post-election recriminations: Fox News Channel quoted an unnamed McCain campaign figure as saying that Sarah Palin did not know that Africa was a continent.
"Who would say such a thing? On Monday the answer popped up on a blog and popped out of the mouth of David Shuster, an MSNBC anchor.
'Turns out it was Martin Eisenstadt, a McCain policy adviser, who has come forward today to identify himself as the source of the leaks,' Mr. Shuster said."
"But a film maker Eitan Gorlin was the phony McCain adviser Martin Eisenstadt. The pranksters behind Eisenstadt, Mr. Gorlin and Mr. Mirvish, say the blame lies not with them but with shoddiness in the traditional news media and especially the blogosphere."
(IsraelNN.com) Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni have voiced opposition to a plan by outgoing United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to sponsor a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for the establishment of a new Arab state.
Israel Channel One television reporter Ayala Chasson reported that the government is concerned the proposed resolution will be slanted against Israel and that Secretary Rice wants it passed as a show of achievement before leaving office.
Okay, I lied. ... and people thought this broad was SecState, presidential and/or vice-presidential timber.
Ah, but lastly... a palette cleanser from the UK's Telegraph:
"Iraqi and US forces have arrested a man responsible for beheadings in the volatile Diyala province north of Baghdad, a defence ministry spokesman said.
"The suspect, Riyad Wahab Hassan Falih was described as 'a very high-level, wanted terrorist' who was responsible for training al-Qaeda members 'specialising in beheading people.'
I hope there is a water-board in his future and a tragic mishap on the way back to his cell.
