  • The "Obama Phone" Lady vs. Angry White Men with Guns

    10/03/2012 8:00:57 AM PDT · by Cincinatus' Wife · 37 replies
    Salon ^ | October 2, 2012
    ..............In the Right-wing's dreamworld, the Obama Phone Lady is a "surplus" person with no place in an Ayn Rand fantasy, what is the Tea Party GOP's dystopian soon-to-be made true reality. Culture is also transmitted through historical memory. The white gun shop owner who believes that Obama is a socialist usurper represents a type ofwhiteness that is not benign. While white folks imagine themselves through the lens of white privilege (where they are kind, innocent, and good). For others, Whiteness (and by implication, white people) has been a harbinger of violence, death, destruction, and exclusion. White men with guns who...

    Seattle Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 2 October, 2012 | Dave Workman
    Presidential debate moderator Jim Lehrer is being lobbied hard to ask questions about gun control and violent crime during Wednesday’s debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, and that just might be a splendid idea with unintended consequences for the president and his anti-rights supporters. That may not play well in Seattle, where the Seattle Times has offered one of the most tepid endorsements ever to grace its editorial page, recommending that voters re-elect the president. The Brady Campaign is trying to add momentum to the effort by publishing a letter from families of Batman massacre victims in Aurora, Colo....

    The Operation Fast and Furious scandal may hurt President Barack Obama’s re-election chances with Hispanic voters in November, conservative group American Future Fund thinks. On Monday, American Future Fund (AFF) released two new Spanish-language political ads — “Confienza” and “Cuentas” — that the group says will run on television and radio in Albuquerque, N.M.; Raleigh, N.C.; Washington; Las Vegas and Denver. “December 2010,” an anchor reads in the television ad, “U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry is gunned down along the Arizona-Mexico border.” “Under Fast and Furious, President Obama’s Justice Department puts thousands of weapons in the hands of dangerous...

    A robbery attempt went awry when a local business owner pointed a gun at the suspect's head. The owner of Club Billiards was getting out of his truck around 10 a.m. Monday in the 900 block of W. Douglas when a man came up to him. "He had his hands in his pockets. He stated he had a gun and wanted the victim's wallet," said Wichita Police Lieutenant Doug Nolte. "The victim stated that he also had a gun, at which time he produced a handgun and pointed it at the suspect's head."

    On December 15, 2010, ATF Special Agent John Dodson’s life changed forever when when Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed in the Arizona desert. At least two of the guns left at the scene were linked to Operation Fast and Furious. Before Terry was killed, hundreds had been killed in Mexico as a result of the program, leaving only blood stained concrete and horror behind. For a year prior to Terry’s murder, Dodson worked as part of ATF Phoenix Gunrunning Group VII, the group assigned to carry out the bulk of Fast and Furious. He was told for months...

    Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan sent out a fundraising plea to supporters Tuesday saying that donating to the Romney campaign will help ensure that Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., whose Justice Department oversaw the botched "Fast and Furious" gunwalking operation, will be kicked out of office. The email plea comes a day after Univision reported that guns from the U.S. government operation ended up in the hands of major drug cartel leaders and were used to kill 16 people at a birthday party in Juarez, Mexico.

    As of 2 PM ET, various searches at the national web site of the Associated Press, aka the Administration's Press (on "furious"; on "Univision"), Reuters ("furious"; "fast and furious"; "univision"), and United Press International ("furious"; "Univision") indicate that the three wire services have given no coverage to reports from Univision exposing the wider geographic scope and far more fatal fallout of the deliberately untrackable guns-to-cartels operation known as Fast and Furious. I wonder how the leading U.S. Spanish network's broadcasters and audience feel about getting the same treatment the establishment press gives center-right blogs?

Pharr police reported that it happened on the Mexican border city's eastside early Sunday morning. Investigators told Action 4 News that a wounded 38-year-old man drove up from Mexico at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge around 8:20 a.m. Sunday. The Pharr man told customs officers that a bullet grazed his head while fleeing from gunmen in his red Ford Ranger pickup truck.

Big store, but the shooting cubicle is hidden in the back of the store between fishing stuff and camping equipment. Had to search. They had a fair stock of long guns -- no evil handguns, of course. I asked to see the prices on .22 LR and was pleased to find that they carry the Remington .22 LR copper-covered rounds in the 525 round box for $10.98. The rest of the .22 ammo was expensive, however: 100 rounds for $21.95....

The blast sent Representative Fred Wood's wife to a burn center in Salt Lake City on Saturday night.

    Over the weekend the Univision network broke major news in the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal. They found 57 previously unreported guns used in crimes by Mexican cartels, but ABC, CBS and NBC have yet to report the Spanish-language network’s findings. There were zero mentions on Sunday night’s ABC's World News and CBS's Evening News (NBC's Nightly News was pre-empted by Ryder Cup coverage) or on any of Monday’s morning shows. The blackout on ABC’s broadcasts is particularly confounding since they have an excerpt from Univision's report on ABC's official Web site. The refusal by ABC, CBS or NBC to...

    El Presidente Chávez endorses President Obama Univision Fast and Furious "Bombshell"President Obama may not get as much Latin Americans support as previously anticipated. With Univision -- the "leading media company serving Hispanic America" -- set to broadcast a "bombshell" report tonight on Fast and Furious apparently focusing on the many deaths it caused in Latin America, his support seems likely to diminish. As observed at PJ Tatler, Univision has not coddled President Obama recently. Univision’s anchors grilled President Obama about Fast and Furious during a town hall meeting on the network earlier in September, suggesting that Attorney General Eric Holder...

    An interesting panel on using pop culture to advantage this morning. Madison Rising (Richard Mgrdechaian)was there, Alan Korwin, J. Neil Schulman and Peggy Tartaro. I had known J. Neil and Alan, but hadn't had a chance to talk to J. Neil yet, so I went up after his talk and arranged for a place to meet and catch up. "Tex" Fuller hit me at the door and suggested lunch. I told him I wanted to talk to J. Neil and he came along. They had never met, and did not know each other, but it soon became obvious that they...

    The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) has endorsed former Virginia Gov. George Allen over Democratic Senate opponent Tim Kaine, on Saturday. “George Allen has a proven record of defending the Second Amendment,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. “Because of his strong support of our rights, George Allen has earned an “A” rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.” Kaine, who is also a former governor of the state, got an “F” from the 4-million member organization. “As chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Tim Kaine strongly supported the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor for the U.S. Supreme Court...

    I was at Dick's this morning to buy some 223 ammo and was paying in cash. Before the checkout clerk would ring me out I had to tap Yes or No on the pad for the question of "Are you a US citizen"? None of the other gun stores I frequent ask this question......will be my last ever Dick's Sporting Goods purchase.

    Over two centuries ago a group of British colonists huddling amid the forests and rivers of a new continent decided what they could and could not say by killing enough soldiers and mercenaries that the people who had been in charge of their speech decided they should try their luck somewhere where the regulating was easier. This state of affairs in which the country that those colonists formed became and remains one of the very few places in the world, even among Western democracies, where freedom of speech is absolute, came about through stirring speeches, deeply felt debates, classical ideas...

    In Orlando Saturday, talk about Operation Fast and Furious is once again heating up with Friday’s revelation by CBS News that Capitol Hill investigators are looking at a subpoena for someone who declined to talk earlier, and a key whistleblower is demanding the retraction of a June 27 article published by Fortune Magazine. Fast and Furious was supposed to be just one of many issues discussed here at the 27th annual Gun Rights Policy Conference, but there are some people here who may make it a central topic. Prof. John Lott, who wrote a blistering rebuttal to the Fortune Magazine...

    Last night at the GRPC I went to a party hosted by Dead Patriot Films, who are working hard on "Assualted - Civil Rights Under Fire". Like all good projects, they need money. I will likely send them some after I get back to Arizona. http://www.deadpatriotfilms.com/assaulted/ At the party, I met people that just clicked. What are the chances of three guys talking, and it comes out that they all have had some familial experience with Asperger's? This morning, I was checking out of the hotel, and spot Mike Vanderboegh sitting in an armchair in the lobby. We greeted each...

    I arrived at the GRPC yesterday evening after 6pm. While checking in David Kopel came up to the counter in running gear. An hour later, Mike Vanderboegh advised me on how to obtain a free internet connection. This is clearly the place to network on restoring the Second Amendment and the Constitution to the United States. Today, numerous panels discussed everything from how to overcome the MSM bias and tips on forming and running effective state organizations, to Awards to activists and breifings on what is happening with Fast and Furious. Everyone is quite approachable. I met with old friends...
