Overnite Pete: Gun control follies

In true Marx-Alinsky style, the Lefties and Obamanistas are not letting a crisis go to waste. Confiscating America’s guns has long been on the Kleptocrat playbook, as it was in the playbooks of Nazi Germany, Commie Russia, Commie China, Commie Cuba, Commie Nicaragua, Commie Venzuela… [anybody seeing a pattern here….?]. The mass murder by a psychotic loser of 20 elementary school children and 6 adults in Connecticut was a vile crime and a huge tragedy. But the Dem response to it is ridiculous, deliberately fever-pitched, and deliberately calculated and dishonest.

We’d all love to make such despicable crimes impossible. Love to. But Democrat responses of (a) confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens, (b) publish names and addresses of gun owners, (c)blame Republicans for a “gun culture” that instigated this mass murder is (depending on which Democrat) moronic or supremely, cynically tyrannical. When the NRA leader had a public appearance at which he stated (a) it ain’t the NRA’s fault, and much to the contrary NRA promotes responsible gun practices, and (b) why don’t you put armed security people in public schools (which by the way 30% of all schools already do that). The Commie Left went completely nuts over that.

Which is what you get from the Commies when you (a) stand up to their bullying, and (b) suggest a solution that is elegant in its simplicity and effectiveness. Typical.

On MI anti-RTW union mobs, and thoroughly evil Democrats

The left-side activities going on this week by union thugs, by Democrat legislators, by the left-dominated news media, and of course by your president, not mine, the HCSIC, would be breath-taking in their scale of hate, of lawlessness, of intimidation, of pure anti-American spirit — except that actual Americans have come to expect this of them routinely.

Nothing new.

Overnite Pete: sore loser? You better know it.

OK, it’s now a good month after that caca burger of a stolen election that now makes the end of free America unavoidable, and perhaps now I can speak of it without daisy-chained expletive-riddled sailor-speak. Well, probably not, on the avoiding cursing thing. Well, just excuse the [s-bomb] out of me for not accepting this. … Read moreOvernite Pete: sore loser? You better know it.

Overnite Pete: Sandy fallout

So the big hurricane/norther/perfect storm hit Monday, and unlike last year’s storm of the century (Irene), this one packed a large wallop. But soon enough the wind and the tidal surge passed, and now we do have a mess on our hands. The NJ coast, Lower Manhattan, and Staten Island seem to have suffered terribly. Electricity out, plumbing and drinkable water out, gasoline out, tunnels and bridges in and out closed (or monitored by Bloomy for those trying to sneak out without at least 3 to a car).

There was at least a week’s notice that this was coming. I don’t begrudge that the infrastructure took a huge hit. I only partly begrudge ordinary people not planning a little better for food/water/gas shortages. And then that idiot barack strolled around the Jersey shore in his photo-op with FatBoy™ and actually said “if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes”, in association with something he called the “15 minute rule.”

Yeah, right.

Anybody here too tired to fight 5 more days?

In some degree, we’ve been counting the days to this November the 6th for 4 years. Or perhaps for 24 years. Or perhaps since ObamaCare was passed, or since Porkulus was passed, or since the November 2010 thrashing we gave to the Visigoths. Maybe since Chief Justice Benedict Roberts stole a big one for the Bolshevik team.

Any way you count it, this Tuesday has been circled on the calendar for quite some time. It is the day that the forces of the Constitution are arrayed from one side of the valley to the other, against the forces of Statism. The valley is filled from wall to wall, and there is nobody on the battlefield who has not trained and worked tireless days, weeks, and months, all pointed to this day.

Every helmet and breastplate has been cleaned and polished to a shine, every dent hammered out. Every strap is on tight. Every weapon has been checked and rechecked, every blade honed down to a fine edge.

This is the day we have lived for.

Overnite Pete: EJ Dionne is an idiot (again)

Yeah I know. I am violating the old adage: no need to point out the astoundingly obvious when the merely obvious will do. Yet, this I could not pass up. Just add this one to the Mount McKinley size pile of bull-hockey from the main-sleaze commie media in their prodigious effort to get the chief commie re-elected so he can continue his work of dismantling the country. You can’t blame commies for agitating and lying for the cause.

But I do find it disappointing that they are so stupid. Just once could we get an evil but brilliant adversary? Perhaps we could meet the Kleptocrats halfway: give us an adversary that can button his fly without a government-issued manual.

Gutless Call: Far Worse Than We Thought

The stories, both official and unofficial, from sources inside and outside the administration, continue to evolve. The facts, even as we know them today, are incomplete and contradictory. But wind the clock back, if you will, to the first several days after the 9/11 terrorist attack on the Benghazi consulate that resulted in the murders of 4 American citizens, including Ambassador Stevens. From the very beginning there was the stench of incompetence at the top, of being lied to, and worst of all, of a creepy sense that there was no real concern for the lives lost, no righteous anger, and no sense of retribution.

In the immediate aftermath we heard the administration line that it was a spontaneous mob gone wild, and we knew instinctively that was too pat, and contradicted facts which were already becoming known. The whereabouts of the ambassador were unknown for several hours, and the battle was known to have gone on for hours at at least two sites. We watched Obama’s pitifully inadequate statement just before he jaunted off to Vegas for scheduled campaign activities.

We saw several embassies attacked in the following days, and the black Al Qaeda flag raised over at least two portions of sovereign American soil, while no saber-rattling proceeded from an administration that seemed bent on excusing the terrorists. We saw our UN Ambassador and our President peddle known lies to the UN, blaming an obscure video for inciting the Muslim mobs. We got word of a multi-million dollar ad that supposedly ran in Pakistan in which both the President and Secretary of state denounced the video.

Americans were bitterly angry at such cowtowing, lying, and blame-shifting. Obama’s poll numbers in the upcoming election immediately began to crumble.

Boy, weren’t those the good old days for the Obamanistas. It’s a ton worse now.

Overnite Pete: final debate notes

Yeah, I’ve been gone awhile. Deal with it. And don’t hold back on the tuna.

OK now, Bambi says he’s kept faith with the troops. Which is, of course: why no in-theater troops can seem to get any absentee ballots; why the ROE keep getting our young patriots killed; why active-duty military would have missed paychecks in the early 2009 government shutdown since Resident Bambi marked troops as “non-essential government personnel”; all those Navy corpse-men; 104 rounds of golf, 1700 troops killed (h/t EPU); and I could go on awhile.

Yeah, you regular troop-hugging dandy you.

The Next Freshman Class – With Your Shield, Or On It

The incoming bunch of House and Senate freshmen better have a whole new way of thinking. It’s not that the much-heralded Class of the 2010 Mandate didn’t do enough. It’s that they didn’t do anything.

Mandate for change
Never in the history of this Republic has a mid-term election brought such a smack-down to the ruling party as that in 2010. The 63-person swing in the House and 7-person swing in the Senate was both retribution (for Porkulus, for ObamaCare, for not even addressing the economy, for the Gulf drilling moratorium, and for the attempts on card check and Cap-and-Trade energy tax) and mandate (stop the spending, stop the regulatory bloom, stop the debt spike, and generally hold the line until we could get a new president and a two-house majority in 2012 and repeal BambiCare). From top to bottom, from governor down to dog catcher, Americans rejected the Democrat agenda in toto. Lock, stock, and two smoking barrels. Republicans had firm control of the House at 242-193, and near-parity in the Senate, 47-53.

Same old Vichy Republicans
What we got for our trouble came a little short of what we call “representation.”
