Happy Cinco De Mayo, or as Barack Obama might say, “Cinco de Cuatro!”
Barack Obama goes to Mexico, warns us not to get all “bogged down” worrying about border security, and apologizes AGAIN for the United States, this time for being responsible for drug trafficking and the prevalence of guns, and conveniently neglects to mention that his administration deliberately sent lots of them there in an attempt to gin up gun control hysteria in the United States. As his fellow pinko Lenin would say, to make an omelette, you’ve got to break some eggs. What’s a few hundred dead Mexicans?
For the 5th time in the last 18 months, Obama goes to Ohio, this time to THE Ohio State University to reward the wet-behind-the-ears Obamabots who mindlessly voted for him because he’s so cool. He warns them not to get all bogged down in listening to people who tell them that government isn’t the source of everything good in their lives.
With a straight face, faux reasonable, moderate, middle-of-the-road guy/national embarrassment Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) explains that unless we pass the 844-page “comprehensive immigration reform,” it won’t be possible to make sure that people like the Tsarnaev accomplices don’t overstay or re-enter the country with expired student visas, demonstrating how breathtakingly stupid the democrats really think we are.
Rudy Giuliani makes a great case that Robel Phillipos, Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev should be charged with being accessories in the murder of MIT police officer Sean Collier.
On May Day, amazingly, once again, illegal aliens emerge from “the shadows” to wave Mexican flags and hang out with communists and anarchists. The Left, including their stenographers in the LSM, say “Communists? What communists?” So does the afore-mentioned pudgy huckster, Dick Durbin.
Benghazi survivors remain “in the shadows,” but whistleblowers will testify on Wednesday before Darryl Issa’s committee.
Bill Maher celebrates the gassing and incineration of his fellow citizens by our government at Waco.
At the NRA convention, Wayne LaPierre says bring it on, and reflects on what it’s like to be called a “liar” by Barack Obama. I think it’s sort of like being called “fat” by Michael Moore, or “stupid” by Elisabeth Hasselback.

SL (Smart Listener) Mensa sent us these quotes from John Maynard Keynes, which I wanted to share since we were talking about all the Keynesian crap that Gene Sperling and Barack Obama are trying to sell you. Link here. Don’t be played.)
“I believe that in many cases the ideal size for the unit of control and organisation lies somewhere between the individual and the modern State. I suggest, therefore, that progress lies in the growth and the recognition of semi-autonomous bodies within the State-bodies whose criterion of action within their own field is solely the public good as they understand it, and from whose deliberations motives of private advantage are excluded…”
“For my part I think that capitalism, wisely managed, can probably be made more efficient for attaining economic ends than any alternative system yet in sight, but that in itself it is in many ways extremely objectionable. Our problem is to work out a social organisation which shall be as efficient as possible without offending our notions of a satisfactory way of life.”
-John Maynard Keynes
Washington’s Economic Boom, Financed by You – NYTimes.com (While the rest of the country suffered in the Obama economy, Washington D.C. was a boom town, thanks to tax dollars. Now we are supposed to feel bad because some federal employees might be furloughed for a day or two?)

Dennis Rodman and His New BFF, Nork Dictator Kim Jong Un (Thought Experiment: did he do any worse than Jimmy Carter in 1994? That’s a rhetorical question. The answer is no!)
The Real Jimmy Carter: How Our Worst Ex-President Undermines American Foreign Policy, Coddles Dictators and Created the Party of Clinton and Kerry: Steven F. Hayward: Amazon.com: Books (Book I read from re the King of the Useful Idiots trip to North Korea in 1994, after which the grandfather of the current dictator allegedly died from laughing after negotiating with Jimmuh.)
Justice Scalia’s comment during last week’s oral argument over Sec. 5 of the Voting Rights Act has Left even more unhinged than usual because he accurately described “preclearance,” what was supposed to be a temporary remedy as “racial entitlement.”
Soundbite I didn’t have time to play, in which liberals express outrage over Court invalidating legislative enactment. From MS-NBC’S “Up with Chris Hayes,” featuring Judith Browne Dianis, of something called the Advanceproject.org, and Akhil Reed Amar, of Yale Law School. Thought experiment: will they feel the same way about the Court reviewing the Defense of Marriage Act?
Redistricting, Race, and the Voting Rights Act > Publications > National Affairs (thorough explanation of this law, and especially the changes to Section 5 over the years, and why Justice Scalia was absolutely correct when he referred to “racial entitlement”)
Thanks to our guests, Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America and Mary Claire Kendall, Acting CEO of Friends of Reagan’s Chicago Home.
Inexplicably, B. Hussein Obama’s campaign operation releases a ridiculous photo, purporting to show the Dear Reader skeet shooting at Camp David. Either he was shooting at a lead pigeon, which was unable to slip the surly bounds of Earth, hence necessitating that Barry fire the gun while it was held parallel to the ground, or he was aiming at John Boehner. He should have borrowed John Kerry’s “Huntin’ License” getup for this charade. The only possible explanation is that they are hoping to appeal to their low info and/or stupid supporters, who are blissfully unaware of Barack Obama’s decades long, well-demonstrated hostility to the 2nd Amendment.
Citing debunked, bogus studies, the Liberal Death Star (the New York Times) rips Gayle Trotter of Independent Women’s Forum for asserting that guns make women safer. On ABC’s “This Week,” RINO political consultant Matthew Dowd echoes the identical misinformation. and suggests we might want to repeal the 2nd Amendment.
On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” fill-in host F. Chuck Todd cites a Super Bowl ad from Mayor Bloomberg’s gun grab group and lies about the NRA changing its position on “universal” background checks, when even the ad didn’t say that. Pudgy former Obama press secretary, Robert Gibbs, agrees.
On “Fox News Sunday” the NRA’s Wayne La Pierre explains the reason that the instant background check system that the NRA supported in 1999 has been a failure.
Joe Biden, Who Said We Had a Moral Obligation to Impose Gun Control to Solve Problem of Gun Violence, Says Gun Control Won’t Solve Problem of Gun Violence. This is the same guy who told us that the Obama administration doesn’t have time to enforce the current law about firearm purchase background checks. And of course, since they don’t have the time to administer background checks, what are they demanding? More laws about background checks.
Flashback: Twana Brawley tries an interesting approach to avoid paying damages for slandering a New York prosecutor; specifically, have several last names, all of which are not “Brawley.” Nice try.

While both Democrats and Republicans slobber all over Hillary Clinton when she finally appears before Congress to try to explain what happened when 4 Americans were murdered in Benghazi on 9/11/12, an objective review demonstrates that the Obama foreign policy of “leading from behind” is a disaster. Ted Koppel, Bob Woodward and John McCain agree on that. Unless we’re counting frequent flyer miles, isn’t Hillary a huge failure? Except for that “beautiful voice” mentioned by Chris Matthews, of course. What about the obvious irony of Hillary Clinton, a woman who cut her political teeth by pursuing a sitting president for lying, now saying that it doesn’t matter if a president lies?
Barack Hussein Obama, Neville Chamberlain, Jr.
2nd Amendment update: Diane Feinstein calls the NRA “venal,” as in “corrupt” and “dishonest.” They actually have the audacity–I hope that you are sitting down–to train children how to safely use guns!!!!
Pat Robertson says “awful looking women” are responsible for problems in marriage.
