Why am I reminded of this? "Oh, you vicious brute."

"Gun-control activists have made significant political headway on the state level since the Newtown shooting. In the past year, they prevailed on background check fights in Washington state and Oregon."
Yeah, and we've negated them by armed civil disobedience in every state they did.
Kilrain's Hypothesis: “The truth is, Colonel, that there's no divine spark, bless you. There's many a man alive no more value than a dead dog. Believe me, when you've seen them hang each other...Equality? Christ in Heaven. What I'm fighting for is the right to prove I'm a better man than many. Where have you seen this divine spark in operation, Colonel? Where have you noted this magnificent equality? The Great White Joker in the Sky dooms us all to stupidity or poverty from birth. no two things on earth are equal or have an equal chance, not a leaf nor a tree. There's many a man worse than me, and some better, but I don't think race or country matters a damn. What matters is justice. 'Tis why I'm here. I'll be treated as I deserve, not as my father deserved. I'm Kilrain, and I God damn all gentlemen. I don't know who me father was and I don't give a damn. There's only one aristocracy, and that's right here - " he tapped his white skull with a thick finger - "and YOU, Colonel laddie, are a member of it and don't even know it. You are damned good at everything I've seen you do, a lovely soldier, an honest man, and you got a good heart on you too, which is rare in clever men. Strange thing. I'm not a clever man meself, but I know it when I run across it. The strange and marvelous thing about you, Colonel darlin', is that you believe in mankind, even preachers, whereas when you've got my great experience of the world you will have learned that good men are rare, much rarer than you think.” ― Michael Shaara, The Killer Angels
"Johnson argues that rather than starting from a presumed duty not to kill and then looking for ways to override that duty, the classic Just War tradition (Augustine, Aquinas, Vitoria, etc.) begins from considerations of justice and what it requires in a particular situation. Justice, not a duty against killing, is the ever present demand and determines the morality of killing. In Johnson’s model, just killing is not a necessary evil, but a morally good act in service of justice. One must be careful not to confuse 'morally good' with 'desirable.' In Johnson’s model, war is still a last resort, but not because there is a standing duty not to kill. It is a last resort because the goal of war is peace, and if a just peace can be achieved without violence, it ought to be. If war must be fought, however, it can be fought without committing intrinsically evil acts."
Living inside the SPLC's head rent free. Bill Morlin tries to discredit the Roseburg action by misquoting me.
The mugshot of a lying propagandist hack.
Bill Morlin used to pretend to be a journalist. Now he's a paid flunky propagandist of Morris Dees and Mark Potok's Lies-For-Money operation in Montgomery, Alabama. Witness this sloppy piece of "reportage": "Oregon Sheriff Focal Point for Anti-Gun Law Movement with Presidential Visit Looming."
Those new state gun laws prompted demonstrations earlier this year in the Northwest by pro-gun, antigovernment groups, including those planning to protest President Obama’s visit to Oregon on Friday.Mike Vanderboegh, cofounder of the so-called “III Percent” movement, and several “Will Not Comply” leaders spoke at those pro-gun rallies where many demonstrators were armed, some in militia uniforms. On his blog, Vanderboegh already has hyped Friday’s demonstration in Roseburg – live theater pitting gun control advocates and the president against the Oregon sheriff and others who oppose gun control.Vanderboegh said in a recent post that he wonders if protesters will be “either relegated to a ‘free speech zone’ or the participants face some kind of jackbooted action.”“In other words, your presence is needed,” Vanderboegh urged his followers. “As I’ve written before, the potential for things to go bad is not a good reason to stay home,” he said. “It is, however, a pretty compelling reason to go.”
There's only one problem: I didn't write that, Kit Lange did. It forms the last two paragraphs of her piece. The post he's referring to is here: Rally in Roseburg: Patriots Plan to Tell Obama He’s Not Welcome. The quote, as is often the case as readers of this blog well know, IS used as a LINK to Kit's piece at the Patrick Henry Society, but anyone who clicks on it and reads her piece would know that.
Morlin's desperation to drag the infamous Vanderboegh into his hit piece is obvious. As always with the Southern Preposterous Lie Center, no distortion or fabrication is too egregious if they want to flog their donors out of more money.
Don't get me wrong. I support the Roseburg action and if I wasn't desperately ill from the chemotherapy, or if I lived closer and this wasn't the weekend my oldest daughter gets married, I'd be there. But when Morlin sold his soul to the SPLC Devil, he obviously lost the ability -- if he ever had any -- to discern fact from fiction, especially if the lie was in service to larger fundraising prime directive.

Curiouser and curiouser. McCarthy apparently has a sex scandal lurking. . . and the tip off came from none other than the secret political police of the Department of Homeland Security. GOP elitists weep.

“It is total confusion — a banana republic,” said Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), a Boehner ally, as he recounted seeing a handful of House Republicans weeping Thursday over the downfall of McCarthy and the broader discord. “Any plan, anything you anticipate, who knows what’ll happen. People are crying. They don’t have any idea how this will unfold at all.”
Obama is coming to Roseburg, at great expense to the taxpayers, even though he’s been told not to come. The townspeople have made it clear he is not welcome but the city government continues to claim that they do support his visit. That is a clear-cut example of elected officials not following the will of the people they serve.
"I think everyone who advocates gun control should try to confiscate our weapons. All of them. Don’t leave even a single one behind. Come into our homes. That’s where they are. And be sure to join the SWAT teams who you’ll be sending to their deaths. If you really believe all of this stuff. I think you’re just blowing hot air and aren’t prepared for the bloody civil war that would ensue. Oh … you mean you’re just talking about sending OTHER PEOPLE to do the work? I get it now."
Be sure to check out the comments following Herschel's post at Motherless Jones.
Central banks around the world are selling U.S. government bonds at the fastest pace on record, the most dramatic shift in the $12.8 trillion Treasury market since the financial crisis. Sales by China, Russia, Brazil and Taiwan are the latest sign of an emerging-markets slowdown that is threatening to spill over into the U.S. economy. Previously, all four were large purchasers of U.S. debt.

Sing along with me: "The Blue Helmets are coming, tra la, tra la. We're cleaning our rifles, tra la, tra la . . ."

What really stands out about this rally isn’t just the national distaste for yet another narcissistic move by the naked emperor. It’s the patriots who already left from Ohio to make it to Oregon by Friday to stand with the citizens of Roseburg. It’s the guy who, on his own, collected a few hundred dollars from patriots across the country to provide high-quality signs for the rally. It’s the hundreds and hundreds of comments from people in every state…prayers and support from Tampa Bay to Anchorage, Honolulu to NYC. People offering money and resources and skills to make sure that the event is safe, responsible, and sends the right message—namely, that Obama is not welcome in Roseburg, Oregon.
Black Lives Matter activist leader Blake Simons penned a piece in September warning that the US needs a new Constitution or “there will be bullets.”
“A Constitution written by only white men will never serve the interests of Black people,” Simons argues. “The Constitution was written for the ruling class of white men which constructed whiteness to be more valuable than any other race. When we discuss institutional racism, it is essential that we realize that the Constitution created it.”
