Range report. You get what you pay for

I overslept this morning, but woke up in time to get to the range by 11:30. I usually prefer arriving early, they open at 11:00. I just like it better when I am the only one shooting or one of just a few. There was only two other guys there, so I had the place nearly to myself. This was my third trip since buying my new Sig P250 c .45 and I focused mostly on quicker firing today. Getting the gun up, sighted, and firing on target was my aim, and I was interested in how a less deliberate pace would affect my accuracy. I shot at various ranges 7-11 yards, and increased my rate of fire as I went, with my last two magazines used up as quickly as I could pull the trigger. The results?

100 rounds fired, with 98 shots in the 8,9,10 circles, both of those in the 7 circle happened while shooting my first magazine. Of the 98 in the 8-10 circles, 75 were in the 9-10. So, my accuracy was actually a bit above usual. After sweeping up, I cannot believe everyone does NOT sweep up their brass, I went into the shop and purchased a new gun case, and a box of Federal Personal Defense bullets, and chatted with the owner a bit, as usual. Today I told him about a co-worker who I had heard bashing gun owners because “they never trained, or became effective with our guns”. I was amused last week when this same fellow asked me what I did on days off. When I told him Friday’s generally mean a trip to the range, he looked put off, asking me what I got out of shooting. I told him that I do enjoy shooting, but that a large part of visiting the range is to become as proficient with my guns as possible, just in case. This made him look even more put off.

Funny how Liberals think isn’t it? First they rail about how gun owners ought to practice but then criticize us when we DO invest time and effort into training.

Anyway, after that I went home, cleaned my gun, the take down on a Sig is super simple, and so is reassembling it, so cleaning is pretty easy. Those folks at Sig really do make great guns, which brings me back to my original point, which is sometimes you DO get what you pay for. My Taurus PT 140 .40 S&W is a fine gun, I have put well over 2,000 rounds through it with no problems, but after just 300 rounds with my Sig, I am already far more accurate and consistent with it. Yes, the Sig is more money than a Taurus, and I have one of the least expensive Sig Sauers, but the Sig is a superior gun, better sights, better ergonomics, super simple maintenance. I would never tell anyone what type of gun to buy, but, I will remind y’all that I have named Sig Sauer the OFFICIAL gun maker of this blog, so………….

This is the kind of thing David Frum says never happens

Two thugs, one 18-year-old home alone, one gun, one thug dead, one on the run. HMMMM

A Fort Bend County teenager fought back Friday after two strangers broke into his home. One suspect is now dead and a second is on the run.

Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the home just after 3pm for a reported home invasion. Investigators said it’s the home of veteran Houston police officer Ken Patmon.

Patmon’s 18-year-old son was home alone when he heard a noise. There were two men pounding on the front door, but he didn’t answer. They then went around to the back of the house.

Patmon said his son called him when the trouble started

“He called me and told me about it,” the homeowner said. “Not long after that, two unknown suspects entered our home without permission.”

The men allegedly forced their way inside, meeting the teen head-on.

“My son, trying to defend his home and himself, he discharged my firearm, striking one of the suspects,” Patmon said.

The shot suspect died inside the home. The second suspect fled the scene.

Thank God that kid was armed. 

 

Another Day, Another Extremist Democrat

Tom Harkin really hates those damn Tea Party types. I mean come on, common Americans getting involved in the political process? That is like soooo inconvenient for Statists like Harkin

Via The Hill:

Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) on Friday said that the Tea Party movement is just as dangerous for America as the Civil War.

“A small group of willful men and women who have a certain ideology about how our country should run and what we should do cannot get their way in a normal discourse and votes,” Harkin said. “Since they can’t get their way they’re going to create this confusion and discourse and hope the public is so mixed up in who to blame for this that perhaps they’ll blame both sides.”

“That is the path they see for taking over the government. It’s dangerous, very dangerous. … Every bit as dangerous as the break up and the Civil War.”

Well first off the “Civil War” is not an accurate name for that conflict. A civil war would be two or more factions fighting to control government. The Confederate States seceded, formed a NEW nation, and fought only to defend the right to do so. But, more to the point. Harkin calls the Tea Party “willful” as if they are children throwing a tantrum. Actually, they, unlike parasites like Harkin, they Care about our nation and the Constitution, which, of course can make life tough on Harkin who really does not give a rats ass about the Constitution!

Idiot brings a machete to rob pharmacy, hilarity ensues

Via Free North Carolina

A thug who hit up an Arkansas pharmacy with a machete got his just desserts when a brave worker threatened him back with a gun. The terrified crook went running for his life Friday after the clerk whipped out the firearm during the botched robbery at the Medicine Shoppe in North Little Rock.

Astonishing surveillance footage shows the criminal casually walking into the store, leaving a pal outside as lookout, Fox 16 reports.

He hangs around for several minutes, telling staff he is picking up a prescription for his granny, and then pulling the enormous blade from his pants and leaping over the counter..

Man with a knife tries to rob pizza delivery man who carries a gun

Take a wild guess how this ended. Via Weasel Zippers, which has a new look

Via The Blaze:

A pizza delivery-man fatally shot a knife-wielding robber after dropping off a pizza to a motel room.

Domino’s employee Bryon Park, 54, had just returned to his vehicle after delivering a pizza to a room in a Days Inn motel in West Melbourne, Fla., about midnight Friday when Fredrick Lorenza Kelly Jr., 32, approached him with a large knife, the Brevard Times reports.

Kelly allegedly threatened to kill Park if he didn’t hand over money. A police official reports Park grabbed a gun he carries in his vehicle and fired once toward Kelly, who was later pronounced dead at the scene, the Times reports.

“Preliminary evidence in the case demonstrates that the intended victim of the robbery acted in self-defense while being robbed by a violent criminal who was armed with a knife,” Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey said.

Kelly’s lengthy rap sheet includes armed robbery, aggravated battery, and false imprisonment, according to the sheriff’s office, and was released from prison in 2009, the Times says.

What do you want to bet that the criminal ASSUMED that a pizza delivery guy would not be armed? Also, I am not sure if this would be a Stand Your Ground case or just basic self-defense, anyone know? Either way a bad guy is put down and an innocent guy making a living is alive! I call that a win-win!

Muslim Brotherhood support dwindling in Egypt?

We can hope the Egyptian army is kicking their arsses it would seem

Support for the Muslim Brotherhood appears to be dwindling. According to JPost, the Muslim Brotherhood was calling for a mass “Friday of Martyrs” protest and very few showed up. 

Jpost reports the following:

CAIRO – Mass protests called by Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood mostly failed to materialize on Friday as the movement reeled from a bloody army crackdown on followers of ousted President Mohamed Morsi.

Troops and police had taken relatively low-key security measures before the “Friday of Martyrs” processions that were to have begun from 28 mosques in the capital after weekly prayers.

But midday prayers were cancelled at some mosques and there were few signs of major demonstrations unfolding in Cairo.

“We are not afraid; it’s victory or death,” said Mohamed Abdel Azim, a retired oil engineer who was among about 100 people marching slowly from a mosque near Cairo University. [...]

The Brotherhood, hounded by Egypt’s new army-backed rulers, had called for demonstrations across the country against the crackdown, testing the resilience of its battered support base.

A few dozen Islamists, many of them women, marched in an old Cairo district. Some carried Egyptian flags or rolled-up Morsi posters. Others held umbrellas to ward off the afternoon sun. [...]

Security forces kept a watchful eye, but did not flood the streets, even near Cairo’s central Fateh mosque where gun battles killed scores of people last Friday and Saturday.

The mosque’s metal gates and big front door were locked and chained. Prayers were cancelled. Two armored vehicles were parked down the street, where people shopped at a busy market.

Arkansas school trains and arms teachers, Liberal heads explode spontaneously

You just know the folks at MSNBS are wetting themselves over this. But, I bet this works. a lot better than putting up signs reading “Gun Free Zone”

In the wake of Arkansas’s decision to prevent school districts from proactively arming their teachers, a private school is taking the exact opposite approach.

The pastor of Arkansas Christian Academy in Bryant, Ark., has decided to advertise the fact that at any time, between one and seven school staff members are carrying guns.

“I just felt like with what’s going on in many of the public sectors where there seems to be a lot of shootings we need to take the same stance that we do in church on Sunday for our kids Monday through Friday,” said Perry Black, pastor of the school, in a statement.

Staff members began receiving training and permits to carry weapons earlier this year, in response to the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn. Now, a sign outside Christian Academy stands as a warning to any would-be shooter.

“Staff is armed and trained. Any attempt to harm children will be met with deadly force,” reads the sign.

 

 

Jihadist Swine AKA Ft. Hood shooter found guilty on all counts

Via Gateway Pundit. I have just one question. Can we put  a bullet in this bastards head now?

AP reports: Army Maj. Nidal Hasan was convicted Friday in the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, a shocking assault against American troops at home by one of their own who said he opened fire on fellow soldiers to protect Muslim insurgents abroad.

The Army psychiatrist acknowledged carrying out the attack in a crowded waiting room where unarmed troops were making final preparations to deploy to Afghanistan and Iraq. Thirteen people were killed and more than 30 wounded.

Because Hasan never denied his actions, the court-martial was always less about a conviction than it was about ensuring he received the death penalty. From the beginning of the case, the federal government has sought to execute Hasan, believing that any sentence short of a lethal injection would deprive the military and the families of the dead of the justice they have sought for nearly four years.

A jury of 13 high-ranking military officers reached a unanimous guilty verdict in about seven hours. In the next phase of the trial, they must all agree to give Hasan the death penalty before he can be sent to the military’s death row, which has just five other prisoners. If they do not agree, the 42-year-old could spend the rest of his life in prison.

Four years? It took four years to convict this vile, despicable coward?

Sharyl Attkisson: I think I know who hacked my computers

Via Newsbusters

As NewsBusters previously reported, CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson announced last Friday that her computers had been hacked into “by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions in late 2012.”

On Monday, Attkisson told Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly that she thinks she knows who did it

O’REILLY: And they found out that you indeed were being hacked and made the announcement on Friday. So where does it go from here? I guess CBS could sue somebody, but you got to have somebody who is under suspicion, right? Do you have somebody who is under suspicion?

ATTKISSON: Well, we’re being cautioned, you know, what to say and what not to say at this point.

O’REILLY: By whom?

ATTKISSON: I have attorneys at CBS who are helping us through this. I also have personal counsel.

O’REILLY: And so all your counsel is saying don’t say anything. Do you have the same counsel that the Attorney General has and that Mueller has? No, it’s a joke. Bad joke. Sorry. So all of your counsel is saying don’t accuse anybody right now.

ATTKISSON: Well, they’re just telling us what we can say more than anything right now which is, you know, which you basically heard that there has been an intrusion of the computer. This is not phishing. This is not malware. This is not an ordinary as someone asked me old boyfriend trying to look through my files.

O’REILLY: Okay, this is big?

ATTKISSON: Yeah.

O’REILLY: And, but in order to go after somebody, you’ve got to have a suspicion, and I assume you have a suspicion. You don’t have to tell me. I don’t want to get your lawyers mad but I assume you have a suspicion.

ATTKISSON: Well, I think I know, but I, I’m just not prepared to go into that. So, we’re continuing our investigation. There are multi-facetted, you know, looks at what to do next.

Chris Wysocki: What if they gave a Recovery Summer and no one recovered?

The epic failure that is Obamanomics

Apparently the fifth time isn’t a charm either. Another “Recovery Summer” goes bust.

The U.S. economy added 175,000 jobs in May, a gain that shows employers are hiring at a still-modest but steady pace.

The Labor Department said Friday that the unemployment rate rose to 7.6 percent from 7.5 percent in April.

The government revised the job figures for the previous two months. April’s gains were lowered to 149,000 from 165,000. March’s figure was increased slightly to 142,000 from 138,000. The net loss was 12,000 jobs.

Employers have added an average of 155,000 jobs in past three months, below the average of 237,000 created from November through February.

Author Of Patriot Act Says NSA Phone Records Collection ‘Never The Intent’ Of Law – Fox news

The author of the Patriot Act said Thursday that a secret program under which the Obama administration was collecting phone records from millions of Americans is “excessive” and beyond the scope of the law.

.

Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., who wrote the 2001 law, was among a host of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle who raised alarm over the practice.

The Guardian newspaper first reported the National Security Agency had been collecting records under a court order from millions of Verizon customers in the U.S. Defenders of the program tried to ease the furor by assuring the public this is “nothing new” – and in fact has been going on for seven years. But the acknowledgement that the program is long running only fueled the outrage from civil liberties groups and lawmakers who described it as a blatant overreach.

“This is a big deal, a really big deal,” Sensenbrenner told Fox News, adding that such a broad seizure was “never the intent” of the law. He floated the possibility of amending the Patriot Act before its 2015 expiration to stop this.

In a separate statement, he called the program “excessive and un-American.”

The Republican lawmaker also fired off a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder – who would not comment on the program when asked about it Thursday – explaining why he thinks the records collection goes astray of the law. He noted that the key section of the law that allows the government to obtain business records requires the information to be relevant to an authorized investigation.

“How could the phone records of so many innocent Americans be relevant to an authorized investigation?” he asked in the letter.

He said the order “could not have been drafted more broadly,” and said he does not think it’s “consistent” with the law’s requirements.

A handful of in-the-know lawmakers lined up to defend the program, while acknowledging the need to protect privacy.

Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., chairman of the House intelligence committee, said the effort is not “data mining,” and has helped quash a terrorist attack on U.S. soil in the past few years. He would not elaborate.

The leaders of the Senate intelligence committee also defended the program, saying it is “nothing new.” Republican Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss said it’s been going on for seven years.

Chairwoman Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said these orders are actually renewed every three months through the court. She said the records are there for investigators to access if there is suspicion of terrorist activity.

“The threat from terrorism remains very real and these lawful intelligence activities must continue, with the careful oversight of the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government,” Feinstein and Chambliss said in a joint statement.

Speaking later in the day, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said “everyone should just calm down.”

Administration officials, while not directly acknowledging the order, defended their authority to collect records and stressed they’re not listening in on conversations.

However, civil liberties groups and some lawmakers sounded the alarm over the collection effort.

“The National Security Agency’s seizure and surveillance of virtually all of Verizon’s phone customers is an astounding assault on the Constitution,” Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said.

One civil liberties group called this the “broadest surveillance order to ever have been issued.”

“It requires no level of suspicion and applies to all Verizon subscribers anywhere in the U.S.,” the Center for Constitutional Rights said in a statement.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who has historically opposed the Patriot Act, said the effort “is not what democracy is about.”

The report in the Guardian newspaper follows revelations that the Justice Department was seizing the phone records of journalists, including at Fox News, in the course of leak probes.

The order, a copy of which apparently was obtained by The Guardian, reportedly was granted by the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court on April 25 and is good until July 19.

It requires Verizon, one of the nation’s largest telecommunications companies, on an “ongoing, daily basis” to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the U.S. and between the U.S. and other countries.

The text of the order, as published by The Guardian, says that “the Custodian of Records shall produce to the National Security Agency (NSA) upon service of this Order, and continue production on an ongoing daily basis thereafter for the duration of this Order, unless otherwise ordered by the Court, an electronic copy of the” the records in question.

The newspaper claims the document shows for the first time that under the Obama administration the communication records of millions of U.S. citizens were being collected indiscriminately and in bulk, regardless of whether they were suspected of any wrongdoing.

NSA, FBI Secretly Mines Data From Major Internet Companies – Daily Caller

The NSA and the FBI are mining the user data of nine major Internet companies, an expose by The Washington Post revealed Thursday evening.

The previously undisclosed program – called PRISM – allows intelligence analysts to directly tap the servers of Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, and Apple.

The audio and video chats, photographs, emails, documents and connection logs of users are all available to be extracted and analyzed by intelligence analysts.

The names of the companies appear in the order of when they joined the “court-approved” program, which began in 2007. Dropbox is reportedly “coming soon.”

98 percent of PRISM’s product is derived from intelligence gathered from Yahoo, Microsoft, and Google.

The Guardian and NBC News also confirmed the existence of PRISM, whose analysis is used in out of seven NSA reports and was cited in 1,477 articles of the President’s Daily Brief in 2012.

“In exchange for immunity from lawsuits, companies such as Yahoo and AOL are obliged to accept a “directive” from the attorney general and the director of national intelligence to open their servers to the FBI’s Data Intercept Technology Unit, which handles liaison to U.S. companies from the NSA,” wrote The Washington Post.

“In 2008,” the newspaper continued, “Congress gave the Justice Department authority for a secret order from the Foreign Surveillance Intelligence Court to compel a reluctant company “to comply.”

The companies that responded to the Post’s requests for comment – including Google, Facebook and Apple – denied any participation in PRISM.

The government’s 41-slide PowerPoint presentation – dated April 2013 – and supporting materials describing the program were provided to The Washington Post by a career intelligence officer looking to expose a “gross intrusion of privacy.”

“They quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type,” the officer said to The Washington Post.

Intelligence analysts are able to query the servers of the participating companies using “selectors” to determine with 51 percent confidence a target’s “foreignness.”

Information accidentally collected about innocent Americans by analysts is considered “incidental” and “nothing to worry about.”

PRISM is not a new thing for the government, despite the involvement of fairly modern technology.

“PRISM is an heir, in one sense, to a history of intelligence alliances with as many as 100 trusted U.S. companies since the 1970s,” wrote The Washington Post. These alliances are called Special Source Operations.

“PRISM was launched from the ashes of President George W. Bush’s secret program of warrantless domestic surveillance in 2007, after news media disclosures, lawsuits and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court forced the president to look for new authority,” wrote The Washington Post.

A parallel program to PRISM described in The Washington Post expose called BLARNEY collects “metadata” – address packets, device signatures and the like – as it streams past choke points along the backbone of the Internet.”

This type of effort by the NSA was first exposed when former AT&T technician Mark Klein went public about his knowledge of a secret room at a San Franciscio AT&T facility that intercepted all Internet traffic.

The Washington Post expose comes directly on the heels of a separate report by The Guardian, which revealed late Tuesday evening that Verizon was being secretly ordered on an ongoing basis to hand over the phone data of all communications inside the U.S.

The phone data includes phone numbers, when the call was made and for how long the call took place.

Randy Milch, Verizon’s Executive Vice President and General Counsel, would not confirm the accuracy of The Guardian’s report, but said that if such an order were issued to Verizon, the company would be “required to comply.”

California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein affirmed that the court order was a routine three month renewal of a secret program that has been ongoing since the previous administration.

The NSA and the FBI both declined The Daily Caller’s request for comment.

Glenn Greenwald: The U.S. Wants To ‘Destroy Privacy Around The World’ – Business Insider

The journalist who took part in breaking two attention-grabbing stories on government surveillance charged that the United States is interested in destroying privacy all over the world.

“There is a massive apparatus within the United States government that with complete secrecy has been building this enormous structure that has only one goal,” Greenwald said on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live” on Thursday.

“And that is to destroy privacy and anonymity not just in the United States but around the world.”

Greenwald’s subsequent comments came just hours after The Guardian and The Washington Post both broke another bombshell report detailing a program dubbed as “PRISM.” According to the reports, the program involves the National Security Agency and FBI tapping into the servers of nine leading Internet companies to extract information.

Greenwald jump-started Thursday’s discussion over civil liberties and government surveillance with a report late Wednesday night that detailed the NSA’s collection of data from millions of Americans’ phone records.

“It’s well past time that we have a debate about whether that’s the kind of country and world in which we want to live,” Greenwald said on CNN. “We haven’t had that debate because it’s all done in secrecy and the Obama administration has been very aggressive about bullying and threatening anybody who thinks about exposing it or writing about it or even doing journalism about it. It’s well past time that that come to an end.”

The Obama administration and some members of Congress have defended the use of the programs. Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) said the NSA’s collection of phone data has been going on for seven years. Feinstein said it’s about “protecting America.”

“People like Dianne Feinstein and Saxby Chambliss can have press conferences threatening people for bringing light to what it is they’re doing, but the only people who are going to be investigated are them,” Greenwald said in response.

“It’s well past time that these threats start to be treated with the contempt that they deserve.”

Worse Than We Thought? Gov’t Tracked Credit Card Transactions, Shared Phones Records With UK – The Blaze

You may want to sit down for this.

It appears that along with online information, the U.S. government has tracked credit card purchases and, in some cases, shared phone data with the U.K., according to The Wall Street Journal and The Daily Beast.

It was revealed earlier this week that the feds have been monitoring Verizon, Sprint Nextel, and AT&T customers and that the National Security Administration had established a massive program, code-named PRISM, that indicates the monitoring of Americans.

Now the Wall Street Journal’s sources claim NSA operations also encompass purchase information from credit-card providers.

“It couldn’t be determined if any of the Internet or credit-card arrangements are ongoing, as are the phone company efforts, or one-shot collection efforts,” the WSJ notes.

What is known at this time, however, is that the NSA has established with credit-card companies the same type of relationship it has established with tech companies. That is, the NSA asks for the data and they get it.

Also, according to The Daily Beast’s Eli Lake, at least “one foreign government has gained access to sensitive data collected by the National Security Agency from U.S. telecommunications companies in dragnet court warrants demanding the secret transfer of U.S. customers’ calling records.”

The collected information, referred to as “metadata,” does not include conversation content or the names of people associated with accounts. It does, however, record when and where calls are made and for how long.

And in a few “discreet cases,” as Lake puts it, “the NSA has shared unedited analysis of these records with its British counterpart, the Government Communications Headquarters.”

Furthermore, in 2010, GCHQ actually gained access to the NSA’s PRISM program, The Guardian reports.

“The documents showed the British generated 197 intelligence reports from access to the system in 2012,” Lake notes.

“With advances in computer science, intelligence services can now mine vast amounts of data collected by telecom companies, Internet service providers, and social-media sites for patterns that can illuminate terrorist networks and help solve crimes,” he adds, citing intelligence officers.

“These metadata … reside in vast hard drives that belong to the NSA. Analysts there can then take a phone number or email address and uncover suspected terrorists’ associates, find their locations, and even learn clues about their possible targets.”

A former senior U.S. intelligence official told The Daily Beast, “My understanding is if the British had a phone number, we might run the number through the database for them and provide them with the results.”

“I do not know of cases where the U.S. government has shared this kind of metadata with the United Kingdom, but I would be surprised if this never happened,” Peter Wood, the CEO of First Base Technologies, said in the same report. “Both countries cooperate very closely on counterterrorism.”

Why PRISM Is Different And Scarier Than Other NSA Spying – National Journal

PRISM, the latest surveillance program leaked to the press, makes the collection of metadata from the three major phone companies seem quaintly old-fashioned. Its Big Brother implications are stunning from the standpoints of both technology and audacity.

I’ve written twice this week on how presidents routinely overstep the bounds when they are facing urgent security threats like war or al-Qaida, and how that should not be shocking, given the stakes. But PRISM, which reportedly allows the government to track people’s Internet activities as they occur, does come as a shock.

The metadata collected by the National Security Agency from Verizon and other phone companies is an aggregation of phone numbers and lengths of calls, and does not harvest the content of the calls. PRISM, first disclosed Thursday night by The Washington Post and The Guardian, is different. According to the intelligence official who leaked the information to The Post: “They quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type.”

James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, says PRISM is “important and entirely legal” and “cannot be used to intentionally target any U.S. citizen, any other U.S. person, or anyone located within the United States.” Obama himself said Friday that he was skeptical about NSA surveillance programs when he took office, but he and his team concluded after assessing them that “they help us prevent terrorist attacks.”

Both the phone and Internet programs are “under very strict supervision” by all three branches of government, Obama said, and added that he has put in place new safeguards and audits. He called the encroachment on privacy modest. “Nobody is listening to your telephone calls,” he said, or reading the email of U.S. citizens.

Still, the stew of threats, technology, and government authority seems like a scandal waiting to happen. The potential for invasion of privacy is as enormous as the scale of the program. PRISM reportedly involves nine giant Internet companies: Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, and Apple. Some are denying they participate.

PRISM dates from the George W. Bush administration and, according to Clapper, has been overseen by Congress and the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. That means some insiders wouldn’t have been surprised by the revelations and may explain why former Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer stood by it last night when I asked him about it. “I support it, just as I support detecting patterns that can lead us to terrorists,” he told me on Twitter.

The leaked information makes clear that the PRISM program is central to U.S. intelligence gathering. Clapper called the unauthorized disclosure of its existence “reprehensible” and said it “risks important protections for the security of Americans.”

In fact the twin leaks of PRISM and the phone data-collection program appear more serious and consequential than the leaks that led the Justice Department to investigate the Associated Press and Fox News’ James Rosen.

Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have all but admitted overzealousness in those two investigations, in which Rosen was labeled a coconspirator and so many AP phone records were subpoenaed that one member of Congress called it a constitutionally questionable dragnet. Obama and Holder have been trying to dial back and reassure the media that reporters won’t be prosecuted for doing their jobs.

Investigations of these latest leaks will be a stiff test of their restraint, and their ability to explain why PRISM in particular is not something that should worry people who use the Internet. In other words, almost everyone in America.

Flashback: Whistleblower Revealed NSA Scandal 14 Months Ago, MSM Refused To Report – Pundit Press

In April of 2012, whistleblower William Binney went on the program Democracy Now to reveal that the NSA was lying to the American people about their actions. Binney is a former intelligence agent.

He stated that the NSA had “20 trillion transactions” on record. Specifically, transactions are phone calls, emails, internet searches, and credit card purchases made by average citizens.

When asked if he believed that the United States government had every single email American citizens had sent, Binney stated that, “I believe they have most of them.”

When asked about the difference between the Obama and Bush administrations, Binney cautioned, “Actually, I think the surveillance has increased, in fact I would suggest that they’ve assembled on the order of 20 trillion transactions about US citizens with other US citizens. 20 trillion.”

“They can target anyone they want,” he warned.

Yet it was only this week that the Main Stream Media officially reported on the NSA’s activities, and that was after the story was broken by the Guardian.

After hearing a thorough defense of the NSA’s monitoring of Americans’ phone calls, Megyn Kelly discussed it with constitutional law expert Jonathan Turley, who took particular issue with Obama referring to the program as a “modest encroachment” on privacy. He called that statement “laughable,” saying Obama did not address the questions that civil libertarians like himself have been asking since the Bush administration.

“Telephone companies were demanding every single phone call made by every single citizen. It’s the type of surveillance that once was though futuristic, that wasn’t even technically possible, but it is now… I’m really astonished by the dismissive attitude of the president,” said Turley, calling it a “major violation of privacy.”

Check out the full interview above, including why Turley believes Obama is “unconnected from reality.”

Dem. Senator Contradicts Obama: ‘I Had No Idea’ About PRISM, ‘Don’t Know’ How Many In Congress Knew – Mediaite

Appearing on MSNBC’s Now with Alex Wagner, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) said that he was never briefed on the National Security Agency’s sweeping PRISM program which databases electronic communications data. Merkley said that he had no idea about the program and he suspects that a small number of members of the congressional intelligence committees were the only individuals informed of the program.

Wagner recalled that the president said that he welcomes the debate over how much privacy Americans should expect to give up in order to ensure security. She asked Merkley if he thought it was even possible to have that debate.

“I think it is possible,” he replied. “Much more possible now that there is public examination.”

“When I sought information, the only information I got was related to that, ‘yes, there is a program sweeping up broad amounts of data through the Records Act,” Merkley continued.

“This second thing we’ve just learned about called PRISM, I had no idea about,” he said. “I don’t know how many people knew about it in Congress, but I suspect a very small number on the intelligence committees.”

Merkley noted that President Barack Obama‘s assertion that members of Congress were informed of these programs was not true in his case.

Mark Levin: “We Have The Elements Of A Police State Here” (Video) – Gateway Pundit

Conservative radio host and best-selling author Mark Levin went on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” yesterday to discuss the recent revelations that the National Security Agency had been collecting the phone records of millions of Verizon customers.

Levin told Cavuot:

“We have the elements of a police state here.”

.

.
The Daily Caller reported:

He said that the NSA news in addition to other openings for intrusion by the federal government are the makings of a “police state.”

“I tell you what I make of this – we have the elements of a police state here, and I’m not overstating it,” Levin said. “When you step back and realize the Supreme Court the other day ruled 5-to-4 that law enforcement can take DNA from you even if you’re arrested – by the way, you’re arrested even when you’re stopped for a speeding ticket, and Scalia was right, concerned about a national database. That goes way over the line of our traditions.”

“The Department of Homeland Security now is checking laptops and iPhones and other data, making copies of it and keeping it, and now we have this,” he continued. “And some of my brothers and sisters in law enforcement, prosecutors, are saying, ‘Look, look, this is permitted. We need to be able to go through and match -’ wait a minute. You don’t throw a whole net on the entire country and everybody’s phone numbers and check the duration and see if you can come up with some overlaps. That’s not law enforcement. That’s not how national security works. I don’t care what the hell the Supreme Court said 30 years ago or what some judge said 15 minutes ago. This is America, and our government is collecting way too damn much data on we the private citizen.”

Your Daley Gator Lying Leftist Liars IRS Scandal Roundup For Friday (Videos)

‘Rogue’ IRS Agent Who Wrote Threatening Letters Gets Promotion – Washington Examiner

President Obama may have promised “to hold the responsible parties accountable” for the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative non-profit groups, but one of the agents at the center of the scandal was recently promoted, an IRS source tells The Washington Examiner.

.

Through 2012, then-Exempt Organization Specialist Stephen Seok signed many of the intimidating letters sent to conservative nonprofits. For example, this January 2012 letter sent to the Richmond Tea Party demanded the date, time and location of all group events, as well as copies of all handouts provided at the events, and the names and credentials of all organizers. Seok also demanded the names of all speakers and the contents of the speeches they made.

According to WXIX-TV/Fox 19 in Cincinnati, Seok is no longer an exempt organization specialist. He has since been promoted to “supervisor IRS agent.”

Contacted for comment on when and why Seok was promoted, the Cincinnati IRS office had no comment and referred all inquiries to the Washington office. The Washington office, when contacted, also refused comment on Seok’s promotion, citing the Privacy Act of 1974.

It appears some of the “rogue agents” in the Cincinnati office are being rewarded for targeting conservatives, not punished.

The Other IRS Scandal – Powerline

It wasn’t just the Tea Party: it has been widely reported that the IRS also has harassed and discriminated against pro-Israel charities, in particular those that support settlements in Judea and Samaria. In the Free Beacon, Alana Goodman pursues the story:

A Washington Free Beacon investigation has identified at least five pro-Israel organizations that have been audited by the IRS in the wake of a coordinated campaign by White House-allied activist groups in 2009 and 2010.

These organizations, some of which are too afraid of government reprisals to speak publicly, say in interviews with the Free Beacon that they now believe the IRS actions may have been coordinated by the Obama administration.

I missed it at the time, but there was a campaign by anti-Israel forces to deprive these charities of their tax-exempt status because their aims conflicted with Obama administration policies:

The media scrutiny began as early as March 26, 2009, when the Washington Post’s David Ignatius published a column questioning the groups’ tax-exempt status.

Ignatius’s column is here. Ignatius displayed a remarkable obtuseness with regard to the First Amendment:

For many years, the United States has had a policy against spending aid money to fund Israeli settlements in the West Bank, which successive administrations have regarded as an obstacle to peace. Yet private organizations in the United States continue to raise tax-exempt contributions for the very activities that the government opposes.

But the tax laws do not depend, obviously, on whether a charitable organization supports or opposes the policies of the current U.S. administration. Groups like the Sierra Club and the ACLU have often promoted policies at odds with administration policies, but no one has suggested that they should therefore lose their tax-exempt status. And, of course, you can contribute to tax-exempt organizations like the Free Gaza Movement. But somehow the idea took hold that charities lending support to Israeli settlements are somehow different. This idea was promoted by pro-Palestinian groups, who encouraged IRS scrutiny of such organizations:

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) announced the [day after the Ignatius column appeared] that it would begin a campaign of filing legal complaints with the IRS and the Treasury Department to investigate groups “allegedly raising funds for the development of illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank.”

ADC is closely tied to the Obama White House. The president recorded a video greeting to the group’s annual conference and sent two senior administration officials to attend.

The ADC announced in October 2009 that it had expanded its legal campaign against pro-Israel charities and was “working with a number of coalition partners, both nationally and internationally, in conducting this ongoing campaign.”

In July 2010, the New York Times chimed in with a long article titled Tax-Exempt Funds Aid Settlements in West Bank. The Times acknowledged that tax-exempt contributions to pro-Israel organizations are entirely legal, but advanced the idea that they are somehow suspect:

The use of charities to promote a foreign policy goal is neither new nor unique – Americans also take tax breaks in giving to pro-Palestinian groups. But the donations to the settler movement stand out because of the centrality of the settlement issue in the current talks and the fact that Washington has consistently refused to allow Israel to spend American government aid in the settlements. Tax breaks for the donations remain largely unchallenged, and unexamined by the American government. The Internal Revenue Service declined to discuss donations for West Bank settlements. State Department officials would comment only generally, and on condition of anonymity.

“It’s a problem,” a senior State Department official said, adding, “It’s unhelpful to the efforts that we’re trying to make.”…

Palestinian officials expressed outrage at the tax breaks.

The IRS appears to have taken complaints about pro-Israel charities to heart. The Free Beacon reports:

One pro-Israel targets was HaYovel, which was featured prominently in the New York Times article. Six months after the article was published, the IRS audited the Nashville-based charity, which sends volunteers to work in vineyards across the Green Line.

“We bookend that [New York Times] story. We were the first [group mentioned]. They really kind of focused on us,” said HaYovel’s founder Tommy Waller. “Then six months later we had an audit.”…

Two other organizations – the American arm of an educational institution that operates across the Green Line and the American arm of a well-known Israeli charity that was mentioned in the New York Times article – say they were also audited.

Another organization that was criticized in multiple articles during 2009 and 2010 was audited last year. The organization, like many of the groups with whom the Free Beacon spoke, asked to remain anonymous out of fear of political retaliation and concern that exposure would harm fundraising efforts…

Concerns that the IRS was targeting pro-Israel groups were first raised publicly by Z Street, a pro-Israel organization run by Lori Lowenthal Marcus.

Z Street filed a lawsuit against the IRS in 2010, alleging its application for tax-exempt status was delayed because it disagreed with the Obama administration’s Israel policy.

The House committees that are looking into the IRS scandal should put this topic high on their agenda. Did President Obama or someone acting at his direction order the IRS to crack down on organizations that disagree with his Middle East policies? Was any similar scrutiny applied to pro-Palestinian groups? Or, perhaps, did IRS officials take their cue from the Washington Post, the New York Times and pro-Palestinian pressure groups and initiate discriminatory policies on their own initiative?

Possibly an investigation will show that audits and delays to which pro-Israel groups have been subjected are random, and not the result of political animus. But given the impressive record of lawlessness that the Obama administration has compiled, no one will take that conclusion for granted.

McClatchy: IRS Targeting Of Conservatives May Go Beyond Tax-Exempt Applications – Hot Air

Could the situation at the IRS get any worse? McClatchy joins CBS News in postulating that the scandal may well expand to more than just applications for tax-exempt status. Both news agencies are starting to take complaints about predatory and punitive audits and other actions and put them into a very ugly pattern – and ask some very difficult questions of the Obama administration:

While the developing scandal over the targeting of conservatives by the tax agency has largely focused to date on its scrutiny of groups with words such as “tea party” or “patriot” in their names, these examples suggest the government was looking at a broader array of conservative groups and perhaps individuals. Their collective experiences at a minimum could spread skepticism about the fairness of a powerful agency that should be above reproach and at worst could point to a secret political vendetta within the government against conservatives.

The emerging stories from real people raise questions about whether the IRS scrutiny extended beyond applicants for tax-exempt status and whether individuals who donated to these tax-exempt organizations or to conservative causes also were targeted.

Former IRS leaders have apologized for inappropriate scrutiny of conservative organizations. They haven’t to date, however, divulged who developed the criteria, how they were developed or when and how they extended to groups associated with conservative causes that didn’t have “tea party,” “patriot” or similar catchwords in their names.

Widening congressional investigations and federal lawsuits are likely to reveal more about the scope and intent of the inappropriate treatment of conservative groups by the IRS. The House Ways and Means Committee plans a hearing Tuesday to allow victims to testify for the first time. In earlier hearings, one IRS official pleaded the Fifth to avoid answering questions.

McClatchy includes the case of Catherine Engelbrecht, which CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson co-reported yesterday. That case, of course, goes far beyond the IRS; Engelbrecht’s business got harassed by the FBI, ATF, and OSHA as well, which would mean coordination far above the Treasury Department. They also include the case of an anti-abortion group that was told they couldn’t picket Planned Parenthood locations if they wanted to keep their exemption, and a Nebraska veteran who got hassled in an IRS audit over his donations to his church once he began donating to conservative causes.

That may end up being the undercard next week, however. The House Oversight Committee will hold hearings over the next two weeks to take testimony from the low-level employees in Cincinnati that Lois Lerner and her former bosses Douglas Shulman and Steven Miller tried to turn into scapegoats:

House investigators will interview four Internal Revenue Service employees over the next two weeks, POLITICO has learned.

The House Ways and Means and Oversight committees hope the four front-line employees from the agency’s Cincinnati office will help lawmakers better understand how the IRS targeting of conservative groups first began.

A committee aide declined to name the employees to be interviewed. But House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said earlier this month he wants the IRS to make available five employees for transcribed interviews including John Shafer, a screening group manager, Gary Muthert, a screener in the tax-exempt division, Liz Hofacre, a former case coordinator from April to October 2010, and Joseph Herr, a former advocacy group manager.

What will be the likelihood that these five will fall on swords and swear that no one told them to target these groups? I’d put the odds on the low side for that outcome.

John Eastman wants a closer look at an already-known outrage in this scandal, too (via Instapundit):

In March of 2012 the Human Rights Campaign published a confidential tax return of the National Organization for Marriage, which was immediately republished by The Huffington Post and other liberal news media outlets. The HRC and NOM are the leading national groups on opposing sides of the fight over gay marriage. HRC wants to redefine marriage to make it genderless, while NOM wishes to preserve marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

My organization was not the only conservative-linked political group or business that appears to have faced shady actions from IRS employees. ProPublica reported this week that the IRS handed over to them confidential documents of nine conservative organizations whose applications for non-profit status were still pending. Among them: Crossroads GPS, a key group backing Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.

Our case was particularly egregious because the IRS leak of confidential information fed directly into an ongoing political battle. For months before March 2012, the pro-gay marriage HRC had been demanding that my group, NOM, publicly identify its major donors, something that NOM and many other non-profits refuse to do. The reason is simple. In the past, gay marriage advocates have used such information to launch campaigns of intimidation against traditional marriage supporters…

At this stage, nobody is accusing the White House or the Obama re-election campaign of illegal activity. But there is a serious question about whether there was communication or possible collusion between the IRS and the HRC, and if there was, whether anyone at the White House or the Obama re-election campaign was involved.

It is imperative that congressional investigators get to the bottom of the issue. If the IRS can get away with leaking NOM’s confidential tax return to its chief political opponent, then no taxpayer is safe from political retribution by the federal government.

The retribution part has already been established. We need to know who ordered it, and how that information got networked.

54 Colorado sheriffs sue to overturn new Colorado gun control laws

Good for them!

A consortium of plaintiffs led by 54 of Colorado’s 62 elected county sheriffs filed a lawsuit in federal court against the state Friday in an effort to overturn two new gun control bills that are set to go into effect on July 1.

The plaintiffs have in their sights one law that effectively bans all firearm magazines, and one that requires a background check for every gun transfer when the gun will be in the possession of someone other than the owner for more than 72 hours.

El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa said the laws are not only unconstitutional, but also confusing and unenforceable.

For example, the ban on magazines was discussed by its Democratic sponsors as applying only to those that hold more than 15 rounds, in response to mass-shooting incidents in Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn.

But the law also outlaws any magazine that can be easily converted to hold more than 15 rounds, which applies to practically all magazines with a removable base plate that can be replaced with an after-market extender.

After July 1, the owners of such magazines cannot sell them, loan them or give them away. In effect, it means that even if they give their weapon to someone else for safekeeping — or, in the case of one wheelchair-bound plaintiff who spoke Friday, to hold momentarily as he gets in and out of his chair — they will be breaking the law.

This is a major issue with so many pieces of legislation, the devil of details are in the fine print, or in the poorly written wording. What a bill says it does, and what it can be twisted to do are entirely different.

 

Well, isn’t that special?

Obama and his Spokestool, Jay Carney, cannot get their stories straight

White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a press conference Tuesday that the White House was notified about the IRS targeting tea party groups “several weeks ago.” This comes a day after President Obama said he found out about it from news reports on Friday of last week.

During a press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron on Monday, President Obama was asked about the IRS scandal. He responded, ”I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this. I think it was on Friday.”

However, Carney said Tuesday that first a report had to be compiled by the IRS’s inspector general and then when it was completed, it was passed on to the administration.

If the media really starts looking into this scandal, or Benghazi, or the whole AP Gate deal, lookout~

 

Couple defends themselves with AR-15, media silence is deafening

Where is the news media? Where is David Frum and his smart ass tweets mocking those who defend themselves with guns?? Oh that’s right, they ignore these inconvenient stories. Matt at Conservative Hideout does not though

The much maligned AR-15 was used to defend a couple from a home invader.  The media silence is deafening.  Mr Conservative has the details…

A couple whose names are being withheld by police were outside of their apartment on Friday, when Jasper Brisbon, who they said appeared to be on drugs, walked up and began staring at them. He did this for several minutes as the couple grew increasingly uncomfortable. Eventually, they decided to go inside of their apartment to get away from Brisbon, but he followed them.

At that point, the man grabbed his AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and told Jasper Brisbon to leave. Brisbon refused his request and started moving towards him in a threatening manner. That’s when the man shot him in the chest and sent Brisbon to the ground. Afterwards, the man called police.

Just another of those stories the Left insists never happen

 

Did gun rights “snooker” Democrats?

Via Weasel Zippers

Via Washington Times:

A prominent gun-rights advocate claims his group’s staff was in the room during the drafting of the recently unveiled proposal to expand gun-purchase background checks and said that “we snookered the other side — they haven’t figured it out yet.”

Alan Gottlieb, executive vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation, made the remarks at a speech in Portland, Ore., on Friday, according to video captured by the group Daylight Disinfectant.

Mr. Gottlieb said that despite claims to the contrary, the amendment that would expand checks to sales online and at gun shows is “not registration” and went on to list a host of gun-rights protections in the measure, such as allowing interstate handgun sales for dealers and protections for veterans, for example.

“It’s a Christmas tree,” Mr. Gottlieb said. “We just hung a million ornaments on it.”

“We’re taking the background check and making it a pro-gun bill,” he added. “Unfortunately, some of my colleagues haven’t quite figured it out yet because they weren’t sitting in the room writing it,” he continued. “My staff was. I’ll be perfectly candid about it. This will probably break on Monday in the Wall Street Journal.”

Well, we shall see. Maybe the GOP has finally outwitted the Democrats, for once. But, why announce it? why start crowing about is already? 

 

Crazy Legs Matthews is off his meds again

Hall of Fame level stupidity.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said Friday that the National Rifle Association wants “guns on demand, like you’re buying a Hershey bar.”

“That’s the way they want to do it, guns on demand, like you’re buying a Hershey bar. That’s it. It’s a Hershey bar. I think I’d like one. I’m going to try that. You know, no background check? What are you, crazy? Okay, that’s the hideous argument they make, check out the guy that’s going to guard the kids, but don’t check out the guy who’s buying the gun to go after the kids,” Matthews said referring to the NRA.

Is this buffoon actually saying the NRA does not want checks on people buying guns to shoot up schools? Good grief he will say anything. Matthews stopped being anything remotely resembling a a journalist long ago. He is now nothing more than a deranged second-rate shock jock.

Actually Chris, it was the NRA that got background checks in place to begin with. You Cannot buy a gun from a gun dealer without undergoing a background check. Very few people who fail those checks ever get prosecuted, which the NRA points out often.

Matthews is nothing more than THAT drunk asshole at the end of the bar now. You know the guy. Sloppy drunk, mumbling incoherently, and asking everyone to buy him a shot. Except Matthews is not even drunk on the air. He does not find his inner asshole in a bottle. Matthews comes by his naturally.

A frightening tale out of New Jersey

You cannot paint a more typically American image than a father giving his son his first gun. But, in the alternate universe Liberalism, such an act warrants a visit from Big Brother

Tyranny on display: give your son a shotgun for his 11th birthday, post a picture of him with the gun on Facebook, have DYFS and 4 heavily armed cops show up at your house.

The ruddy-cheeked, camouflage-clad boy in the photo smiles out from behind a pair of glasses, proudly holding a gun his father gave him as a present for his upcoming 11th birthday.

The weapon in the photo, posted by his dad on Facebook, resembles a military-style assault rifle but, his father says, is actually just a .22-caliber copy. And that, the family believes, is why child welfare case workers and police officers visited the home in Carneys Point last Friday and asked to see his guns.

Go read the rest of this story at Wyblog. Guns have been demonized by the Left for years now, and as a result many people see guns as bad things, and gun owners as dangerous and abnormal. And giving your child a gun? Or teaching them to shoot? Well that is meltdown time for the Left. The Left uses their propaganda very effectively, and sadly, that propaganda works on those who are ignorant.
