Biden: We’re counting on ‘legitimate media’ for successful gun control effort February 11, 2013 | 1:46 pm

During a press conference on gun safety in Philadelphia, Vice President Joe Biden said that any reports that suggest that he was trying to take weapons away from gun owners was a “bunch of malarkey.”

"I know that's a word that you've never heard before, although it's now in the dictionary," Biden boasted.

Biden said that it was important for the media to dissuade the American public from the idea that the Obama administration was prepared to do something unconstitutional on guns.

“To be very blunt with you, we’re counting on all of you, the legitimate news media to cover these discussions because the truth is that times have changed,” Biden added, warning that people would continue to “misrepresent” the White House's plans for gun control.

"The social media that exists out there, the tragedies that have occurred, the Supreme Court decision affirming that its an individual right to bear arms - all give a lie to the argument that what we're trying to do is somehow unconstitutional.........

So he comes right out and tells the MSM that it is their job (as if they needed to be told) to carry the water for the Hussein administration.

Joe is word challenged. It’s not “legitimate”, it’s complicit.

Given the fact the last time the 2nd was in front of the Supremes, it was only one vote from being overruled, what Obie wants to do could reasonably be considered potentially ‘constitutional’. At least that’s what they’re thinking.

Joey Biden is probably one of the dumbest clowns around.

Me and Joe shared Amtrak cars on a few occasions from DC to, first Delaware, (his stop) and then me onto Philly.

Joe is a “nice guy.” He really is, I don’t think he has a mean bone in his body.

But sit and talk to him at length, and you will know why the DuPont family chose him to be Senator from Delaware.

Joe never could have amounted to much, had the DuPonts not seen the usefulness of the idiot.

Wow....Right to their face....I might get "ZAPED" for this, or at lest admonished...But it begs the question....Did you ever wonder what a c**k sucker felt when you call him a c**k sucker.?? I would think the media would have a few moments of reflection...But probably not...I.m sure they have lost all semblance of respect for themselves long ago...I know I don't have any respect what so ever for the supposibly "fifth column"....

Oh, my!!! Such arrogance!!!

Once upon a time in America, leaders understood their role, and the wise ones understood the role of the press in a free society.

"It behooves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others; or their case may, by change of circumstances, become his own. It behooves him, too, in his own case, to give no example of concession, betraying the common right of independent opinion . . . ." --Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Rush, 1803.

"The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter." --Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, 1787.

He’s not going to take our guns away.

He’s going to pay people to do that for him.

Now go pay your taxes - the guys doing the confiscating are going to need the money. :)

Obama doesn't want to take you Assault Weapon.

A lie. If I cannot give away or sell my Assault Weapon, then it really isn't mine. It belongs to the Government who graciously allows me to house it until I die.

It's a sham which thinly disguises the truth--DiFi's new assault weapons' ban is a "taking." Yes, they are taking your weapons and magazines. You no longer own them, control them or are able do with them as you wish. They are forfeit to the "crown."

Not so fast. They are my birth right, as is every terrible implement of the soldier:

Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American... [T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people. (Tench Coxe, Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.)

And:

Whereas civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms. (Tench Coxe, "Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution," under the pseudonym "A Pennsylvanian" in the Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789.)

I like what this Pennsylvanian has to say to Tyrants.

What do Biden and Obama mean by “legitimate” and what do they think is excluded from “legitimate”, though to keep the public ignorant they will not say it?

By “legitimate” they actually think that means only “hunting” and everything else is suspect to them.

This will be shown when they speak, as the only persons they will actually identify as who they are not trying to take guns away from is “legitimate” hunters.

They do not mean being “armed for your protection” when they say “legitimate”.

The main reason the amendment procedures were included in the Constitution is because times change.

If times have changed, then you should go through the amendment process, Mr. Vice President.

Wikipedia used to have the image on the left up on their page about Nikolai Yezhov.
That is, they had that image up until someone noted said resemblance to Zero.

That's okay, we have it on FR and on your hard drive to keep reminding us who Nicolai was ..... (saw references to him earlier and didn't get it, m'self) .....

Which reminds me, Winston Smith has been over at Wikipedia for a while now, hasn't he?

Notice how liberals cluster around information-retrieval and reference sites and .ORG's like flies around fresh dung?

We're going to have to do a better job of culling them out of society in infancy, going forward. .... Speaking of social engineering .... Let Russian couples adopt our liberals, they'll be happier that way living in the Leftist Utopia, where dissident journalists get retired with Makarov pistols.

I’m waiting for the first Stalin style Damnatio Memoriae to happen in official White House photography.

Oldthinker! Oldthinker! That's a damned Eastasian lie! It's 7.62x39mm, I've seen the photos! </s>

I’m waiting for the first Stalin style Damnatio Memoriae to happen in official White House photography.

Happens all the time in the South. Memphis just took down the names of three city parks because they had "Confederate" (read, "damn honky cracka white mofo!") memorializations. That happens to high schools in Houston occasionally -- Robert E. Lee High School was renamed simply "Lee" and the team name was changed from "Rebels" to something meaningless. (Platypuses? Nematodes?)

When New Orleans fell under the heel of a black political machine run by Ernest Morial, father of Marc Morial the Unindicted Felon of New Orleans, the city parks were instantly stripped of their Confederate monuments (except for the rather large and bulky column topped by a statue of Bobby Lee, in the middle of Lee Circle). The large busts on stone pedestals were sequestered in a warehouse whose location is kept secret, and on significant days of the year, black city employees go there and party and piss on them and do other demeaning things to the monuments and the white men they memorialize. That would be an example of damnatio memoriae, or maybe fimificatio memoriae.

Nice, huh?

All over the South, black heroes are celebrated by federal law and local political push -- but white people's forebears and heroes are shunned, denigrated, and in New Orleans, have filth smeared on them in ritual demonization ceremonies presided over by people who call themselves antiracists, but aren't.

Grant’s tomb was a place of hobos and drugs.
So it isn’t just southern gents whose memory gets defaced like that.
It’s just more visible and “in your face” in the south.
Somebody did a restoration effort on the place in 1997 or so.
But it is still in a bad area.
Morningside Heights Manhatten.
It won’t be long until it is a hobo and drug infested pit again.

We won’t be truly postracial until racial insults hold no power over anyone.
Sadly, a certain political party that starts with ‘D’ receives power by keeping people perpetually offended.

Haha . . .

At the end of every CNN or MSNBC broadcast there should be an Obama or Biden voiceover: “and I approve this message”
