Using Brazil as the best argument against gun registration

Read it all at Bearing Arms, but the general summary is registration 1997, led to confiscation beginning in 2003, and was followed by spiking murder rates

The disarmament concept was officially introduced in Brazil in 1997, when the first effectively restrictive of gun-bearing law was enacted (bill # 9,437/97), through which the National System of Weapons-SINARM, intended for strict control of legal weapons circulation, was also created. A few years later, at the end of 2003, the law became even more restrictive, with the “Disarmament Statute”, which had as its major goal precisely to reduce the amount of murders in the country. It was, actually, putting into practice of a disarmament ideology drawn up by the UN long before, although without any proven positive example.

Obviously, it was to no avail. The murders, as seen, have not been reduced, but, on the contrary, they’ve reached their highest number, and what was said to be a magic solution became an unquestioned and grandiose failure. Establishing the prohibition of the possession, as well as carry-on, as a general rule, the Disarmament Statute began to take effect in 2004, the year in which 48,374 homicides were recorded in Brazil . Four years later, with the near extinction of the legal arms trade practice, the numbers came to 50,113 (2008) and since then, there have been on a upward climb until the record of 56,337, registered in 2012.

This is, of course the very road the Left wishes to take America down. Will they ever learn from past mistakes?

Your WTF? story of the day

Mr Balls? 

Mascot “Mr. Balls” is making the rounds in Brazil.

MSN reported:

Meet Mr. Balls. He’s the friendly and surprisingly graphic mascot for a Brazilian nonprofit cancer association, and as a brand ambassador he is a wildly inappropriate success. According to the group’s website: “Both children and adults loved taking pictures with the mascot.” That explains the shot of him waving to the camera on a city street while children frolic at his hairy side. No joke; we totally respect raising awareness for testicular cancer research. But does there really need to be such loving attention to detail in the sponge painting around the bottom of Mr. Balls’, um, teabag?

Mr. balls? I think we are being played folks, I think we know who Mr. Balls REALLY is. have a look

Thanks Barack… Regime Sending 1,400 Manufacturing Jobs And Sensitive Technology To Brazil

Breaking: Obama Sends 1,400 Manufacturing Jobs & Sensitive Technology To Brazil – Gateway Pundit

Yesterday, after a conflict-fraught deliberation process, the Obama Administration awarded the Light Air Support (LAS) contract to Brazilian-based Embraer over Beechcraft; a Wichita Kansas based company with a long history of supplying the U.S. military with aircraft.

………
………..Hawker Beechcraft Headquarters in Witchita, Kansas.

Had Beechcraft been granted the contract, the company expected to add or sustain 1,400 jobs in the U.S. The Embraer plane, on the other hand, will be primarily built in Brazil, with only about 50 assembly jobs in the U.S.

After a long-drawn-out contracting process that has been marred in controversy and questionable conduct by government officials, the Pentagon and the Obama Administration have again decided to put taxpayers at risk and ship jobs overseas by allowing a foreign company to produce important components of our national security.

“On Thursday February 27th, Department of Defense (DOD) officials awarded the Light Air Support (LAS) contract to the Brazilian aircraft maker, Embraer. Interestingly and without explanation, the cost of the contract to taxpayers somehow ballooned from $355 million to $427.5 million, a 20 percent increase. With sequestration and billions of dollars in defense cuts set to take place, taxpayers should be outraged at this cost increase.

“By awarding the contract to the Brazilians, the Administration has once again failed to give Beechcraft, the American-made aircraft manufacturer vying for the contract, the full and fair consideration that was required during the procurement process…

“…Now, the Administration is doubling-down on their prior mistakes by putting a critical defense project in the hands of a foreign sovereign. The extent of the carnage this decision causes is not just limited to the millions that will be sent overseas for these 20 LAS aircraft in the near-term. There are broader implications and untold billions of taxpayer dollars at stake by the Pentagon’s decision to grant the U.S. Air Force’s seal of approval to a foreign entity – backed financially and politically by Brazil. The Brazilian government has a “golden share” in Embraer, which essentially translates into operational control of the company. Not only does this put tax dollars at risk with the Brazilian company, but also could threaten US national security. The Administration’s unjustifiable endorsement of this Brazilian company could be exploited by them to gain unfair and unwarranted advantages in the U.S. and around the world. Meanwhile, domestic manufacturers are forced to cut jobs and highly skilled workers remain unemployed here at home.

Beechcraft just emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

US women beat Brazil, blind refs to advance in World Cup

USA! USA! USA!

DRESDEN, Germany (AP) — The Americans are moving on to the semifinals after one of the most riveting games in the history of the Women’s World Cup — beating Brazil 5-3 on penalty kicks after a 2-2 tie.

Abby Wambach tied it with a magnificent, leaping header in the 122nd minute, and goalkeeper Hope Solo denied the Brazilians again.”We believe we can win this tournament,” Wambach said. “I don’t know if you can write a better script.”

How is this even possible?

Georgia has passed a tough illegal immigration law. How is that any business of 11 Central American nations? And how in the world can they bring suit against Georgia? William Teach

Perhaps Georgia should turn around and sue Mexico for their much more stringent immigration policies

Eleven foreign countries, including Mexico and Brazil, are suing the state of Georgia for its law cracking down on illegal immigration. Neil spoke to Georgia State Representative Matt Ramsey who says that “All we’re trying to do is see the enforcement of American immigration law occur, which is incidentally, compared to Mexico, is liberal and welcome.” Ramsey says the law is intended to protect the state’s economy because taxpayers are subsidizing half a million illegal immigrants in Georgia via public schools, law enforcement and health care costs.

Exactly what right does a foreign nation have to sue one of the states? This boggles my mind it really does. 

Maybe Obama used all those silver bullets killing domestic oil production?

Barack Obama - Caricature

Doug Powers  reports that  Barack Obama has no “silver bullets” to bring down those darned gas prices. Maybe they were all used up shooting holes in our economy, especially domestic oil drilling? Or maybe, as Powers suggests, it is not about silver but about gold and green?

There are several “silver bullets” to help bring down the price of gas, but none of those pieces of silver create gold for the “green” sector or keep the tax stream flowing to government, so motorists will keep being in the red for the foreseeable future:

President Barack Obama reiterated his plan to stabilize soaring gas prices, telling Americans in his weekly address on Saturday that “instead of subsidizing yesterday’s energy sources, we need to invest in tomorrow’s.”

At a time when the economy is struggling to rebound and many people are still searching for jobs, a $4 per gallon price tag is “just another burden when things were already pretty tough,” Obama said.

Echoing a criticism he has made frequently in the past, the president condemned politicians who “score a few points” by offering quick-fix solutions whenever there is a spike in gas prices. “The truth is, there’s no silver bullet that can bring down gas prices right away,” Obama said.

So far Obama’s only real solution for strapped consumers has been to tell them to trade in their gas guzzlers for kumquat-powered golf carts and to mock “drill baby drill,” and yet the oil market seems unimpressed.

Powers also points out that Obama is willing to help build a new refinery. He is even willing to shell out nearly 3 billion of our dollars for it. That refinery will be in Columbia, no, not Columbia, South Carolina, of course not! It will be in Columbia, as in Central America. Can you say outsourcing jobs? Of course, Obama also wants to use our technology to help Brazil drill off its shores for oil. Yet he opposes the use of that same technology here! He also opposes drilling in Alaska, and seemingly anywhere else in this country. Gee, I wonder if these policies might have a hand in rising gas prices? Or, as Obama prefers to say, a “gradual adjustment”

Of course, Obama tells us he wants us to get “greener” find alternative sources of energy. And, if you really think he gives a damn about Americans gas woes, recall that he loves him some cap and trade. And cap and trade will mean less “gradual adjustments” and more “skyrocket”!

You see it is about a “fundamental change” in America. A change that will force us to go “green”, no matter how much it harms our economy. Even if it “bankrupts” certain industries.


And if Obama would bankrupt the coal industry, and see prices for electricity “skyrocket”, why would he hesitate to do the same to the domestic oil industry?

Of course, we should not worry because President Obama has a vision, a vision of a new Marxist America. An America where wealth is, well, you know, “shared”, and a nation where we have economic and social justice!


Yep, we knew this was coming didn’t we?

Barack Obama - Caricature

Yep, our president refuses to issue drilling permits and generally does his best to kill domestic oil production, which will, of course do a lot to drive up gas prices, then blames the price spike on……………………..

U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday blamed speculators for driving gasoline prices higher and straining American consumers, saying there was enough oil in world markets to meet demand.

Speaking at a community college in suburban Virginia, Obama said increasing production of U.S. oil and creating a market for fuel-efficient cars would help meet the country’s energy challenges.

“I know that if you’ve got a limited budget and you just watch that hard-earned money going away to oil companies that will once again probably make record profits this quarter, it’s pretty frustrating,” he said.

Rising fuel prices are a persistent concern for the White House, which is worried about their impact on the economy and on voters’ wallets as Obama runs for re-election.

The president, of course, is hoping enough Americans are stupid enough not to connect the obvious dots that point at his idiotic policies as the reason for soaring prices. Rather than drilling here for our own oil, which we have far more of than Obama will admit, he offers to help Brazil harvest THEIR offshore oil. Now, understand I believe the United States could be energy independent if we had decide to be decades ago. That we are, as a nation not energy independent is the fault of every president, and congress for the past decades, this is a problem both parties have brought us. But this administration seems Hellbent on destroying domestic oil production, and if they want to blame rising gas prices on someone, well…………

Wow, Obama can create jobs, in Brazil!

The more we get to know Obama’s economic policies, the more it looks like he is trying to destroy ours while building up those of our allies er enemies! Chris takes note of Obama’s love of Brazilian jobs

Is Brazil becoming the new home for jobs Obama won’t let Americans do? Our oil drilling industry is now dead in the water thanks to his head-in-the-sand policies. Brazil is in full-on Drill, Baby, Drill mode; encouraged by Mr. Obama and reinforced during his recent visit to that country.

So my radar perked up when I read a recent report in The Wichita Eagle that 1400 American jobs are on the line as the Obama Administration is considering awarding a Light Air Support aircraft contract to Brazil’s Embraer over Kansas-based Hawker Beechcraft.

If cost were the only material criteria, or if Embraer were a truly independent multi-national outfit, then by all means let the best bid win. But some things you just don’t outsource. National security is one of those things.

The Brazilian government is not an ally in the War on Terror. In fact they’re publicly against it. The airplane under consideration is slated to be a key component in that fight. The plane’s mission is Light Attack and Armed Reconnaissance (LAAR), a new type of air support which promises to significantly improve our quick response capabilities. Faster response means fewer Americans get killed. I like that.

Both the Hawker Beechcraft AT-6 and the Embraer Super Tuscano are designed with LAAR support in mind. Either could be a fine choice. But here’s the rub. The Brazilian government holds veto power over all Embraer production and sales activity via a corporate regulation known as The Golden Share.

Poor Obama, even the Washington Post calls his BS now!

Too bad that the MSM was not this tough on Obama BEFORE the 2008 election! Yid exposes the truth about Obama’s lies about his energy policy. And how about the Hypocrite in Chief? He bans offshore drilling HERE, but wants to help Brazil drill of their shores. How is that for green?

Now he has done it.  President Obama has alienated the Washington Post, the Washington home of the progressive movement. After two years of sabotaging America’s efforts to become energy independent by exploiting its own energy resources, the President went to Brazil last week where he promised to help fund it’s oil exploration and promising that we would be their best customers.

By some estimates, the oil you recently discovered off the shores of Brazil could amount to twice the reserves we have in the United States. We want to work with you. We want to help with technology and support to develop these oil reserves safely, and when you’re ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers. At a time when we’ve been reminded how easily instability in other parts of the world can affect the price of oil, the United States could not be happier with the potential for a new, stable source of energy.

WAPO, Obama’s home town paper has accused the POTUS of changing the chant from “Drill Here Drill Now” to “Drill THERE, Drill now:

Brazil is probably a more stable, secure supplier than, say, Libya. Still, the president’s words were ironic. Brazil already produces vast quantities of a fuel — ethanol — that the U.S. government, under a policy long supported by presidents and farm-state members of Congress from both parties, has promoted as a green alternative to gasoline. But the United States, protecting its own heavily subsidized ethanol industry by means of a 2.5 percent tariff and a 54-cent-per-gallon duty, prevents Americans from importing all but trivial amounts of the stuff from Brazil. Therefore, we need more oil — much of it imported. In Brasilia, Mr. Obama spoke of strengthening U.S.-Brazilian technical cooperation on ethanol but did not propose allowing U.S. protectionist measures to lapse after their scheduled expiration on Dec. 31.

As for offshore drilling, Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm for punching holes in the ocean floor off Brazil is hard to reconcile with his decision, announced Dec. 1, to keep the waters off the East and West coasts and the eastern Gulf of Mexico off-limits to exploration indefinitely. His policy was a reversal of an earlier decision he had made to open some of those areas. We can understand that reversal, after the massive oil spill in the western Gulf last year. And, demonstrating a measure of flexibility even after the disaster, the administration has announced five deep-water drilling permits in the western Gulf since the spill.

Simply unbelievable, there really are no words for this are there? Obama tells Brazil we will help THEM drill off THEIR shore for THEIR oil. But American oil drilling off OUR shores? NO!

First Brazil, Now Chile. So Much For Obama ‘The Uniter’

Anti-U.S. Protests In Chile Ahead Of Obama Visit – Emirates 24/7

Two demonstrations were held in Chile Sunday protesting the upcoming visit of President Barack Obama and rejecting a recently signed U.S.-Chilean nuclear agreement.

Some 2,000 people marched in downtown Santiago against Obama’s visit on Monday in an event organized by the environmental group Greenpeace. The protesters were angry that Chile signed a nuclear energy agreement on Friday with the United States despite Japan’s huge atomic crisis.

Like Japan, Chile lies on the Pacific Ring of Fire, a horseshoe-shaped region that is prone to severe earthquakes. Just last year Chile suffered its own monster 8.8 quake and accompanying tsunami which killed more than 500 people.

Opposition lawmakers and environmentalists say the atomic agreement is too risky for a country with such dramatic seismic activity.

“Nuclear energy is energy of death,” read one sign. “Neither invasion of Libya nor nuclear energy” read another.

Chile, a net energy importer, has two small experimental nuclear reactors, used for medicinal and technological applications. It has a formal commitment not to make any decision in the next 10 years about building a nuclear plant.

Some 300 people, including influential union leaders and members of Chile’s Communist Party, earlier marched in the downtown Plaza de Armas carrying banners that read “Obama Persona No Grata” and “Gringos Go Home.”

“This demonstration is to reject Barack Obama’s militaristic policies,” protest organizer Ricardo Sole told AFP.

Obama is scheduled to arrive Monday from Brazil, meet with Chilean President Sebastian Pinera and deliver a speech to the region.

Community Organizer-In-Chief Greeted By Riots In Brazil

Community Organizer-In-Chief Greeted By Riots In Brazil – Daily Mail

Barack Obama’s visit to Brazil had a very unpromising start after police had to quell riots against the U.S. in Rio de Janeiro with rubber bullets and tear gas.

The U.S. President landed in the capital of Brasilia with his wife and daughters, visiting the country on a mission to re-assert trade links with Latin America.

But the day before he landed Brazilian military police fired on 300 demonstrators who had gathered outside the U.S. Consulate in Rio.

Police cracked down on the crowd after protesters hurled a Molotov cocktail at the consulate door, the O Globo newspaper reported on its website.

‘I was in the centre of the protest when people began to run and I heard shots,’ said AFP photographer Vanderlei Almeida.

‘I had to get out of there because it was hard to breathe.’

The photographer said he was struck by two rubber bullets in the leg and the stomach.

Mr Obama’s visit to the region’s economic powerhouse is the centrepiece of his effort to re-engage with neighbours no longer content with being relegated to Washington’s ‘backyard’ and where the United States faces rising competition from China.

But after the riots he was forced to cancel an outdoor speech that he was set to give in a Rio square.

After Air Force One touched down at 7.31am local time, the president, his wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha headed to their hotel before the president held morning talks with Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff.

As Brazilian troops dressed in ceremonial garb formed an honor guard, Obama walked up the futuristic ramp of the Palácio do Planalto, the presidential office building, where Rousseff greeted him with a hearty handshake.

While more regional themes will be touched on when the president visits other South American nations, the focus in Brazil – the seventh largest economy in the world – was on forging a political and economic relationship for the future.

Mr Obama said: ‘Put simply, the United States doesn’t simply recognise Brazil’s rise, we support it enthusiastically. I believe we’ve laid the foundation for greater cooperation between the United States and Brazil for decades to come.’

While President Rousseff agreed, she said any true alliance between the two countries would have to be ‘amongst equals’.

Mr Obama decided to stick with his five-day itinerary, which will also take him to Chile and El Salvador and is pitched as a push for U.S. exports and jobs, despite an array of international troubles that may overshadow his travels.
