More Lies, Hypocrisy and Outright Stupidity from the Left-Today on The Teri O’Brien Show

Be it the budget, immigration, so-called “same sex marriage” or our 2nd amendment rights, we are surrounded by lies, hypocrisy and stupidity. We watch so you don’t have to, and we’ll unpack it all on today’s edition of The Teri O’Brien Show.

mad-men-season-6, Don Draper

Today, the country waits breathlessly for an event that has been anticipated for months, and whose time has finally arrived. No, not the sixth season of “Mad Men,” which will premiere tonight on AMC. I refer, instead to the planned release of Barack Obama’s aka “Mr. Financial Responsibility” budget this coming Wednesday, two months late, no doubt repeating a pattern that the One learned as a coddled, affirmative-action assisted, mediocre student. If we were able to see any of Barry’s college writing, which we aren’t because that stuff is locked down tighter than the plot of tonight’s “Mad Men” episode, we’d no doubt see that these papers presented a vapid regurgitation of his Marxist professors clichè-ridden lectures, devoid of original ideas and designed so that he could just turn something in. This budget charade is similar. It’s not going anywhere, and he knows it. I hope you’re sitting down as I reveal a stunning truth. This budget is just more politics as usual from the Obama perpetual campaign.

In other pointless Washington charades, the “Gang of Eight” continues to work on its “comprehensive immigration reform,” which they claim will include robust border security. Two weeks ago on the 3/24/13 edition of The Teri O’Brien Show, we told you that Big Sis’ Department of Homeland Security admitted in congressional hearing that the new and improved “holistic” measure of border security that they promised three years ago does not even exist. Wait until you hear what boots-on-the-ground border agents are saying about the current number of illegal crossings. Hint: it’s not pretty.

The liberal gun-grabbers leading the charge for trampling on your 2nd amendment rights, from Barack “Automatic Weapon” Obama to Rep. Diana “Magazines are Bullets” DeGette (D-CO) demonstrate their stunning cluelessness about guns. Not that their ignorance on this issue stops them from claiming to know what’s good for everyone else. Barack continues repeating the lie that “40% of gun sales take place without a background check,” a claim that was destroyed in a National Review piece by Prof. John Lott, author of More Guns, Less Crime, Debacle: Obama’s War on Jobs and Growth and What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future and the new At the Brink: Will Obama Push Us Over the Edge? He will be our guest today.

Is Hillary Clinton the new Barack Obama?

A host on the 24/7 nuthouse, MS-NBC, sinks to a new low in promoting so-called “same sex marriage.”

One college administrator has a request for students: “Be nice.” Are college students rude and do they need a manners tune-up?  What say you?

Tune in today for the rest of the story.

Even The WaPo Calls Out Obama on His Phony “40%” Statistic on Gun Sales

On last Sunday’s show, I chastised Capt. Mark Kelly, husband of former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, for repeating the dishonest, albeit frequently cited, statistic that “40% of gun sales don’t involve a background check.” Our frequent guest Professor John Lott called that out in a piece in National Review last January, but that hasn’t stopped those seeking more pointless gun control laws from repeating it ad nauseum. The One himself used it last week in a speech. Like so much of what issues forth from the mouth of our TelePrompTer-dependent chief executive, it’s a lie. From Fox News:

The oft-cited figure, it turns out, was pulled from a 1997 study done by the National Institute of Justice. In the study, researchers estimated about 40 percent of all firearm sales took place through people other than licensed gun dealers. The conclusion was based on data from a 1994 survey of 2,568 households. Of those, only 251 people answered the question about where they got their guns.

PolitiFact tracked down the co-author of the study, Duke University professor Philip Cook, and asked him if he thought the 40 percent estimate is accurate.

“The answer is I have no idea,” Cook reportedly told PolitiFact. “This survey was done almost 20 years ago.”

This story points out the Washington Post’s “Fact Checker” gave Obama 3 Pinochios for this claim. It’s worth reading the whole piece. Here’s a little bit from it.

This study was based on data collected from a survey in 1994, the same year that the Brady Act requirements for background checks came into effect. In fact, the questions concerned purchases in 1993 and 1994, and the Brady Act went into effect in early 1994 — meaning that some, if not many, of the guns were bought in a pre-Brady environment.

Digging deeper, we found that the survey sample was just 251 people. (The survey was done by telephone, using a random-digit-dial method, with a response rate of 50 percent.) With this sample size, the 95 percent confidence interval will be plus or minus six percentage points.

Moreover, when asked whether the respondent bought from a licensed firearms dealer, the possible answers included “probably was/think so” and “probably not,” leaving open the possibility the purchaser was mistaken. (The “probably not” answers were counted as “no.”)

When all of the “yes” and “probably was” answers were added together, that left 35.7 percent of respondents indicating they did not receive the gun from a licensed firearms dealer. Rounding up gets you to 40 percent, although as we noted before, the survey sample is so small it could also be rounded down to 30 percent.

As we brace ourselves for another round of Obama’s “Big Lie” Road show, which today will travel to Colorado, let’s recap what we’ve seen so far. The “never let a crisis go to waste” playbook on prominent display, as B. Hussein Obama takes advantage of the murder of children to once again trample of the U.S. Constitution, and use disingenuous “studies” to deceive people into going along.

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again because there is nothing more true in this life. The Left lies.

There They Go Again: Left Using Bogus “Studies” to Scare Soccer Mommies

Isn’t it amazing how whenever something really horrible happens, liberals ride to the rescue, with these really terrific plans, guaranteed to solve the problem? Sure, their “solutions” never work, and in fact, when applied to most human problems, they make things worse. At least, though, they are always ready. Also always wrong, and never in doubt. When trouble strikes, the Left is there to throw society a life preserver. Unfortunately, they are actually throwing us an anchor.

The well-practiced apparatchiks of the Church of the Left know that their schemes don’t solve problems, and they know that if people find out what they want to do, there will be very few takers. They realize that for them to have any chance of selling us their life preservers, we have to be like shipwreck victims, frantically splashing and gasping for air in freezing ocean water, not like cautious consumers, comfortably standing in the marina, calmly deciding which inflatable safety device we want to buy. Truth, transparency and appeals to logic are poor salesmanship for the Left. Obfuscation, outright deceit and appeals to fear are their keys to success. That’s what Rahm Emanuel meant when he made that infamous, and oft repeated, “never let a crisis go to waste” comment. We often forget the second part of that statement; that is, “what I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you couldn’t do before.” The Tiny Dancer was surprisingly honest, and his honesty should terrify freedom-loving Americans. He’s advocating that cynical political operatives, a subject that he knows first-hand, exploit fear to foist schemes on the public that we wouldn’t accept if we were evaluating their plans logically, rather than desperately grasping for any “solution,” no matter how obviously ridiculous it would seem if we were thinking straight.

So here came Newtown, and predictably, the democrats gleefully whipped out the proposed gun banning legislation that had been sitting in a drawer, waiting for a moment like this one, and with it, all the scientific evidence that proves that they are absolutely correct, and that their policies must be enacted immediately.

You know that liberals are all about science, right? That’s something they often use to mock their mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging opponents otherwise known as Christians. I direct your attention to the Dow Breast Implant case, and the East Anglia climate change e-mail scandal, and say if there’s any better evidence of liberals commitment to science, I’d like to see it. When it comes to guns, they’ve got mountains of that science stuff, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that, despite what you may believe, Bitter Clinger, guns do not make law-abiding citizens safer. In fact, these studies absolutely demonstrate that if you have a gun in your home, you are “22 times more likely” or “43 times more likely,” or whichever one of the collection of manufactured, bogus statistics they choose to recite that day, to kill a loved one, or to be killed by someone living in your house. As recently, as last month, America’s “newspaper of record” the Liberal Death Star, aka the New York Times, recited these same discredited statistics.

These statistics are phony. They are lies, and the people who manufactured them know it. They don’t care about truth. They care about their agenda.

I can hear you saying “Duh. Tell me something I don’t already know.” You’re correct. It’s not news that liberals are very adept at lying, and using junk science to get what they want, whether it’s trial lawyers trying to shake down businesses with the help of single-digit IQ juries, or sleazy political operatives seeking to control their fellow citizens with bad policies. What is interesting and worth examining here, as they have resuscitated Sen. Diane Feinstein’s gun grab gambit, is why they are so intent on making sure that they scare the heck out of anyone even considering getting a firearm for home defense. Telling women that if they bring a gun into their homes they are asking to be shot, or worse, to have their children shot or even killed, will do that job nicely.

Their use of these dishonest “studies” reminds me of a piece of family lore about a relative who moved from the farm to the big city in the early 20th century. We all enjoyed laughing about her running, screaming in terror, from a frightening mass of moving metal, that seemed to be chasing her down the street. It was a street car, something that she had never seen before, and which was therefore unfamiliar and terrifying. That’s how the Left wants you to view guns, as something very very scary, dangerous and definitely not something that belongs in your nice home.

The more people who know how to use, and who may even own, a gun, the fewer the freedom-hating Left will be able to dupe into buying into this lie.

You know that their “scientific evidence” is as real as Barack Obama’s skeet shooting hobby. Remember, though, you aren’t the target of these lies. The average mommy is, the woman who has never fired a gun, and who hears about firearms only in the context of tragedies like Newtown. The Lame Stream Media makes sure to suppress the thousands of stories of armed citizens protecting themselves, their children, their homes and other innocent people, as John Lott has repeatedly shown. If she can be made to believe that a gun is as dangerous as a bag of anthrax, chances are that she will not only not want anything to do with it herself. She will want it banned so that her children will be protected from this scary, terrible thing. If, on the other hand, a gun is just another common household implement, something that can cause injury if misused, but a very useful object when used for good rather than evil, than the thought of banning it makes about as much sense as banning kitchen knives, a notion that even wacky liberals wouldn’t consider. Oh wait

Guns make women and their children safer. The Left wants to make sure that we don’t realize it.

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.
