Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America Reacts to Obama’s Skeet Shooting Scam-Today on The Teri O’Brien Show

With the Middle East in flames, al Qaeda on the march, and many unanswered questions about the murder of 4 Americans in Benghazi, liberal icon/practiced liar Hillary Rodham Clinton not only managed to avoid the inevitable vicious attacks from the vast right-wing conspiracy as she left office as Secretary of State. Her exit path was strewn with flowers, as even Republican senators slobbered all over her and praised her to the skies for the terrific job she has done. Apparently frequent flyer miles count for a lot, since many of us are having a hard time identifying any other achievement for the former New York senator and serial adultery victim.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration continues to entertain and disturb us with unintentional comedy, not only the pathetic performance of Sec. Of Defense nominee Chuck Hagel. They are also attempting to do anything to distract us from our limping economy. Sayeth the Dear Reader: Pay no attention to those anemic job numbers, Subjects. Behold what I am doing for the children with gun control and amnesty for illegals!

After the Sandy Hook murders in Newtown, CT, sensing a good opportunity to exploit a crisis, Barack Obama and his left-wing, 2nd Amendment hating posse pulled their precious gun control plans out of a drawer, dusted them off, and put Joe Biden on the case. Joe promptly committed another gaffe, as in told the truth about the futility of their gun grabbing plans. I guess he figured if “what difference does it make?” worked out so well for his likely 2016 rival, Hillary Clinton, why not steal that line? After all, he has been known to, shall we say, borrow from other people’s speeches.

We’ll ask our special guest Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America his reaction to Biden’s admission, as well as yesterday’s release of a ridiculous photo of Barack Obama skeet shooting at Camp David. What an amazing coincidence!  Apparently years of successfully running a con on millions of Americans has inspired a high degree of overconfidence in this bunch. Note to Obama and his PR flacks: one phony photo op depicting the One awkwardly handling a shotgun does not assuage our concerns about his hostility to the 2nd amendment. It is insufficient to overcome decades of statements, actions and votes the prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Barack Obama does not believe in the individual right to keep and bear arms. This is a man who, as our guest John Lott reminded us, back in the 1990’s, actively participated in Chicago’s attempt to sue gun manufacturers out of existence, and told his colleague Prof. Lott that he didn’t believe people should be able to own guns. This is also the man who appointed Eric Holder, who said that we need to “brainwash” people to be hostile to private gun ownership. As a candidate for the Illinois State Senate in 1996, Obama promised to support a ban on “the manufacture, sale & possession of handguns. Even if he does enjoy skeet shooting, that hobby, like hunting, has nothing to do with why the Founders included the 2nd amendment in our precious Constitution.

And, today is Super Bowl Sunday, and Wednesday is the anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s birth. We’ll celebrate both by getting your take on this year’s crop of Super Bowl commercials, some of which are definitely NOT G-rated, and by getting the inside story about attempts to raze Ronald Reagan’s boyhood apartment in Chicago. Is it really going to be torn down and replaced by a parking lot for Barack Obama’s presidential library? We’ll talk to the woman spearheading attempts to save it, Mary Claire Kendall.

Tune in today for the rest of the story.

Unintentional Comedy, or Is He Just a Dullard? Hagel’s Disastrous Hearing.

I didn’t watch all of Chuck Hagel’s confirmation hearing today, but the part I did see was a disaster for the nominee. Apparently, I’m not the only one who thought that this performance made Barack Obama’s turn on the stage during that first presidential debate last year seem like a triumph. Jennifer Rubin at the Washington Post reports “[a} long-time Capitol Hill Democrat astounded by the hearing tells me, “It is very clear from the testimony that Sen. Hagel will not be bringing the potato salad to the next Mensa picnic.” Gee, I wonder why he said that … Perhaps this story from CNS News could shed some light on that.

“I do not know enough” about Defense Department programs and technology, Chuck Hagel admitted in today’s hearing. “If confirmed (as Defense secretary), I intend to know a lot more,” Hagel promised.

Hagel told the hearing that, in addition to these Defense Dept. details, “There are a lot of things I don’t know about.”

All Rightey then! Nothing like on the job training. Look how well it worked out for Barack?

And please check out this terrific post from The Power Line, describing Sen. Ted Cruz’ devastating questioning of Hagel.

Cruz played excerpts from a tape of Hagel’s 2009 appearance on al Jazeera, in which a caller suggested that Israel had committed war crimes. In responding to the question, Hagel did not dispute the caller’’s statement. Cruz also pointed to statement by Hagel that Israel had engaged in “the sickening slaughter” of Hezbollah, which sounds a bit like war crimes.

Taken together, these pieces of information show that Hagel regards Israel as a criminal state, or at least is comfortable with that characterization. Hagel tried, with the same lameness he displayed most of the day, to talk away around this conclusion. He stated that both sides — Israelis and Hezbollah — had slaughtered each other. Perhaps Hagel will produce a tape in which he accused the Palestinians of engaging in a “sickening slaughter” of Israelis. Perhaps he will produce a tape (from the period before he was in the running for a cabinet job under President Obama) in which he took exception to the claim that Israel has committed war crimes. Perhaps, but don’t hold your breath.

So, does Chuck Hagel simply not give a rat’s rear end if he gets this gig or is he just not very bright? Another question that occurs to me, one that I’ve asked before. How can any thinking Jewish voter have pulled the lever from the One?

What You Know, Joe? Show Notes 1/13/13

Joe Biden prepares to release his carefully considered recommendations to prevent “gun violence,” which he has had in a drawer for the last 30 years, while Lame Stream Media continues to pretend that the emperor has clothes.

They’re back. The “No Labels” group, as in No Principles, No Brains and No Commitment to our rights wants to “compromise” on our liberty. I say screw that.

Taxation Without Cessation | The Weekly Standard (A MUST READ)

According to White House, Congressional Budget Office (CBO), and U.S. Census tallies, when John F. Kennedy was in the White House in 1962, federal tax revenues were $534 per capita, or $4,178 in today’s dollars. Last year (according to those same sources), federal tax revenues were $7,793 per capita. So, from 1962 to 2012, taxes rose 87 percent even after accounting for inflation and population growth. In other words, across the past 50 years, real (inflation-adjusted) per-capita taxes have nearly doubled.

Of course, this 87 percent increase in per-capita taxation hasn’t remotely kept the federal government from racking up higher deficit spending. With JFK in the White House in 1962, the federal government spent 7 percent more than it had available to spend—$1.07 going out for every $1 coming in. With Obama in the White House, it has spent $1.56 for every $1 available.
