State of the Union Preview, Part 2: Guns Bad Speech Delivered in Building Protected by People with Guns

For at least four years, we’ve been told that Barack Hussein Obama (Praise be his name) is going to “pivot” back to the economy, and we’re hearing some more of the same drivel in the lead up to tonight’s State of the Union speech. Don’t count on it. I’m expecting the Inaugural address on steroids, something along the lines of FDR’s “Four Freedoms” speech, or as the Washington Times calls it “a conservative’s nightmare come true.”

The number one item on the list for this bunch, who despise the Constitution’s brilliant system of separation of powers and limited government, is doing something about that annoying 2nd Amendment. So, tonight we’ll see several mascots, intended to help the Obamabot avoid letting the Sandy Hook crisis go to waste. From Politico:

The White House and Democratic lawmakers have invited more than 30 shooting victims or their surviving family members and friends to attend Obama’s speech, including several people tied to the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), severely wounded in a Jan. 2011 shooting, will be there. And first lady Michelle Obama will be accompanied by the parents of Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old Chicago teenager shot to death last month, shortly after she took part in the inaugural parade.

Politico also reports in this story that

[t]he Democrats will also hold a press conference Tuesday with Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the organization, backed by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg that is pouring tens of millions of dollars into the political struggle over gun control.

Also Tuesday, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), a close Obama ally, chaired a subcommittee hearing in the Judiciary Committee on reducing gun violence while “respecting the Second Amendment,” focusing on current gun trafficking laws and proposals to strengthen them.

Now we can all relax, knowing that Dick “Eddie Haskell” Durbin is protecting the 2nd Amendment.

Meanwhile, the Left is becoming even more unhinged than usual over the decision by Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) to bring Ted Nugent to this pointless campaign speech. How dare he do that! Doesn’t he understand that this event is along the lines of the sort of pageants that are telecast on North Korean TV, designed to showcase the brilliant eloquence of the Dear Reader and make us grateful for his benevolence toward us, his subjects?

Gun Owners: Should We Listen to Bob Costas or Jesus Christ? – Doug Giles

I had a frightening thought right before the show went on the air. What if, just like a couple of weeks ago, we’re trying to watch a football game, and suddenly, the game disappears and fills with Barack Obama’s face? And he says “No more football unless the Republicans agree to go along with my balanced approach. It’s what the American people voted on and I won.” Just like that Macintosh commercial. YIKES!

Who Wants a Tax Increase? Today on The Teri O’Brien Show

Cairo the War Dog, one of America’s heroic dogs of war (H/T Muskegon Pundit)

Ever the demagogue, Barack Obama crisscrosses the country, continuing to campaign, despite winning last month’s presidential election. Polls show that 60% of Americans support raising taxes on “the rich,” and he’s determined to keep stoking the fires of class envy to maintain the political advantage that he sees awaiting him after we “plunge” off the “fiscal cliff.” By doing so, he’s hoping to start off his second term making it clear that that’s “not going to play that game that I will play,” the “game” being abiding by the Constitution and allowing Congress to control the debt ceiling. Predictably, here we have the breathtaking arrogance and lawlessness that he demonstrated in his first term, now on steroids. Yet, one prominent, even legendary, member of the Jurassic media says that if there is a recession, Barack Obama will own it. Who is he, and is he right?

Just who are these people who want to funnel more cash down the Washington rathole? There are three groups, and maybe you’re part of one of them. There’s the no-information cohort. This group spends most of its time sitting on their couches, watching “Cheaters” and “The View,” eating Cheetos, and trying to dream up some sort of lawsuit to take advantage of the promised gravy train in the ads that the ambulance chasers run on those shows. They want to stick it to those rich bastards that have been keeping them down, although I don’t think they’ve thought through exactly how taking the fruits of one person’s labor helps them. Then there’s another type of grifter, those who believe that they are going to be on the receiving end of what the government steals from the productive to get their votes. Think food stamps, Obama phones, and also Solyndra and public employee unions. Finally, there’s the group for which we coined the phrase over two years ago, the low information voters, who don’t realize that, yet again, Barack Obama is running a con on them again. Would these people really endorse taking more of what hard-working Americans earn if they realize it was not going to be used to pay down the debt, but rather for more and more spending? Do they really want their children and grandchildren living in the equivalent of today’s Greece?

“Below the Radar” file: In another example of Obama continuing his old ways, he has nominated a benefactor of a domestic terrorist to a Treasury department position. He can’t get enough of people who like to blow stuff up and the people who enable them!

The state that foisted Obama on America, Illinois, went over its own “fiscal cliff” a long time ago, which should have been a bit of a red flag to the rest of the country in 2008 (see above re Low and no Information voters). In the grand tradition of the sleazy, greedy, irresponsible tools that inhabit Springfield, rather than deal with that mess, they turned their attention to a much more pressing need, giving drivers’ licenses to illegals, with the wiling assistance of Republicans. William J. Kelly, of the Kelly Truth Squad, will join us to talk about that.

“I watch so you don’t have to file:” Speaking of sleazy Illinois pols, Dick Durbin, we saw you on “Meet the Press” today, and I have a suggestion. Please get on the blower and call ABC’s Diane Sawyer. You need a fake sincerity coach, and you need one now!

Last week, as Bashar Assad’s regime continues his violent repression that has already murdered thousands of his own people, Barack Obama says using the chemical weapons that Syria got from the One’s pal Putin, is “unacceptable.” I guess that means we can conclude that the 21-month long, on-going slaughter is acceptable. If we’re really lucky, under B. Hussein’s able leadership, Syria will become the next Somalia.

Friday afternoon, the Supreme Court took up two cases involving so-called “same sex marriage.” Will one of these cases be the third in the series Dred Scott and Roe v. Wade? What does the ascendency of “gay marriage” mean, and why the sudden change in the public’s attitude toward this bizarre institution? I know the answer, and I’ll share it.

One thing liberals and conservatives can agree on: we love our pets. There is no more loyal, dependable and useful to mankind than Canis lupus familiaris, aka “man’s best friend,” the dog. The author of Dogs of War, Kathleen Kinsolving, will join us to tell us about the special role 4 famous dogs played in keeping America safe and free.

AUDIO: Obama’s Chicago Mouthpieces Spin, Plus Fort Hood Hero: The Third Hour, 10/21/12


So many soundbites, so little time! It never fails. Every week, we have more content than we have time to share during the two hours of the live show, so we share it here during this weekly “third hour.”

Dick “Eddie Haskell” Durbin Tap Dances on Libya

After repeating the Regime’s official story that Barack Obama had stated that the Benghazi murders were an act of terrorism the very next day in that awkward Rose Garden appearance, the pudgy huckster (h/t to the late Steve Neal, Chicago Sun-Times for that appropriate nickname) tries to explain why he cited this David Ignatius column, which supports Susan Rice’s story about a “spontaneous” demonstration. Which is it, Senator? If Susan Rice was correct, why did the One go to the Rose Garden and call it a terrorist act? You can’t have it both ways, Dick, and you sound particularly stupid trying to do so.

C.Wallace-D.Durbin-WhyDidHeCallitTerrorism (I love the part where Durbin says he wants to channel Candy Crowley)

Rahm “Tiny Dancer” Emanuel tries to explain why we should vote for more of the same crap we’ve been living with since January 2009.

The question from George Stephanopolous: “Can you lay out exactly what Obama would do in a 2nd term?” R.Emanuel-G.Stephanopous-Plansfor2ndTerm

On yesterday’s show, we heard one soundbite featuring Sargent Alonzo Lunsford, an Army medic who was shot in November 2009′s “workplace violence” at Fort Hood. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to hear the other two that we had on the board. Here they are.

FoxAnchor-SgtALunsford-WhatToSayToHassan (Sgt. Lunsford describes why six shots couldn’t put him down, and how if Maj. Hassan wants to perform his holy war, he should meet him hand to hand straight up)


The attack left this amazing hero blind in one eye, but he is unbroken, and now along with other victims of Maj. Nidal Hassan’s terrorist attack, demanding that it be called what it is. As ABC News notes in its story, Fort Hood Victims Demand Attack Be Deemed ‘Terrorism’

In President Obama’s lengthy remarks at a memorial for the dead days after the attack, he never uttered the words “terror” or “terrorism.”

While initially it might appear that Fort Hood and Benghazi are distinct incidents, they are both fruits of the same poisonous tree, Obama’s anti-American world view, in which our great country is not the force for good in the world that we know it to be, but rather the imperialistic, racist evil scourge on the planet described by Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers and Frank Marshall Davis.

Obama Stooges Try To Clean Up Benghazi Mess, Show Notes: 10/21/12

Several of Obama’s fat stooges, former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, Dick “Eddie Haskell” Durbin, and The Combover, sleazy Chicago political operative David Axelrod, appear on Sunday shows to try to clean up the mess created by the Obama administration’s Benghazi coverup, a coverup necessary because the murder of 4 Americans on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by al Qaeda destroys Obama’s fairy tale about his foreign policy prowess. Yes, bin Laden is dead, but sadly, so is J. Christopher Stevens, and with him, the One’s narrative about destroying al Qaeda. They are on the march, which makes Van Jones’ statement that Barack Obama is a “towering figure in foreign policy” beyond ridiculous.

Useful Idiot of the Week, Matthew Dowd, strategist for George W. Bush 2004 campaign, helpfully provides democrats with ammo to use in tonight’s presidential debate

Debbie Wasserman Schulz continues democrats’ lying about the Lilly Ledbetter Act. It’s not, and never was, a “equal pay” act, and uses lame “binders of women” phrase to try to bash Mitt Romney. Greta Van Sustren correctly characterizes that as “silly.”

Fort Hood shooting victims demand justice and fight Obama administration’s characterization of Major Hassan’s murder and mayheim as “workplace violence.”
