No More Halloween! The Feds Say That
Jack-O-Lanterns Cause Global Warming

Inhabitat -- Because it’s the government’s job to make you feel guilty about everything, the feds have decided that you’re contributing to global warming by buying pumpkins.

Of course, just in time for Halloween, the Department of Energy is claiming Jack-o-Lanterns contribute to climate change because most of the burned, rotten pumpkins get tossed in the trash, the Washington Free Beacon is reporting.

“With the passing of Halloween, millions of pounds of pumpkins have turned from seasonal decorations to trash destined for landfills, adding to more than 254 million tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) produced in the United States every year,” a post to the Energy Department’s website this week read.

“At landfills, MSW decomposes and eventually turns into methane–a harmful greenhouse gas that plays a part in climate change, with more than 20 times the warming effect of carbon dioxide (CO2),” the government agency warned.

So (and this is going to cost money, folks, so hold onto your wallets), the Energy Department is going to develop “biorefineries” that would convert plants like pumpkins into biofuel to “have a positive environmental and energy impact.”

“When MSW is used to harness bioenergy–rather than simply being thrown away–the end result benefits the environment and helps our nation become less dependent on carbon-based fuel,” the webpage read.

“Harnessing the potential of bioenergy allows the United States to generate its own supply of clean energy that reduces greenhouse gas emissions. It also limits stress on landfills by reducing waste and could ultimately create jobs for manufacturing, installing, and maintaining energy systems.”

The United States produces 1.3 billion pounds of pumpkins each year, according to the federal agency.

Nothing’s scarier than an out-of-control federal government.
Blog Author's Comments -- I see a similarity between ever increasing things that are considered racist and things that cause global warming. The link in both concepts is pushed on us by liberals. That there has been no global warming since the 90's, and that white racism is miniscule compared to black racism are more examples of liberals calling reality by it's opposite. Pumpkins are completely biodegradable and shouldn't even be in a conversation about MSW. Then again, it's no surprise Obama's Department of Energy is manipulating the subject for their own political agenda.

Barack 'The Truth Teller' Obama Promises He's Not Coming For Our Guns

Down Trend -- Given his propensity for lying, it was hardly reassuring today when President Obama swore up and down that he’s not trying to take our guns away. Bear in mind that he said this in a speech where he doubled down on his position that it’s easier to buy guns than books and also that gun ownership restrictions are not a loss of freedom.

Speaking to the International Association of Chiefs of Police. in Chicago, Obama said:

“Some of you are watching certain television stations or listening to certain radio programs, please do not believe this notion that somehow I’m out to take everyone’s guns away,” he said.

“Every time a mass shootings happens, one of the saddest ironies is suddenly the purchase of guns and ammunition jumps up because folks [are]scared into thinking that, ‘Obama’s gonna use this as an excuse to take away our Second Amendment rights,’ Nobody’s doing that,” continued Obama.

Well, to be fair, every time there’s a high-profile shooting Obama talks about how great gun control is in Australia, a country that did pretty much take everyone’s guns away. If he doesn’t want us to think he coming for our guns, maybe he should stop publicly fantasizing about disarming the American people.

“We’re talking about common-sense measures to make [sure] criminals don’t get them, to make sure background checks work, to make sure that we’re protecting ourselves,” said Obama.

We already have a background check system and that has nothing to do with the way criminals obtain their firearms. There’s no way to extend this background check system to the illegal gun sale black market. How is that common sense? And while we’re at it, how does making it harder for people to legally own guns protect them from these criminals?

“I understand we won’t all agree on this issue, but it’s time to be honest, fewer gun safety laws don’t mean more freedom, they mean more danger. Certainly more danger to police. More grieving families, more Americans terrified their loved ones could be next,” said Obama trying not to laugh.

More freedom means more danger? Or to look at it another way he is saying that more gun control doesn’t mean a loss of freedom. How exactly does that work? And for that matter, how does taking away our right to self-defense make us safer? This is Obama being “honest” by the way. Kind of makes his “I’m not taking your guns away” line seem less truthful, don’t it?[...]

Considering Obama’s record of truth-telling I think it’s a certainty that when he says he isn’t coming for our guns he is in fact coming for our guns. There’s a whole group of people that liked their doctor but couldn’t keep their doctor that would agree with me on this one.

Entire column...
Blog Author's Comments -- I believe that Obama would like to disarm the American citizens and do away with the Second Amendment. And I also believe that before his presidency is over he will do something, perhaps with an executive order, to pass more gun control laws which will have no affect on the criminals but only hurt the law abiding gun owners.

Why does our government want more laws that only affect and criminalize law abiding citizens, instead of throwing the book at criminals caught with guns? It does not surprise me that Obama continues to praise the "Australian model" of "common sense" gun control. I don't expect to see a law officer knocking at my door wanting me to hand over any guns I might have, but I do believe that Obama will try to pass more gun control laws before he leaves office.

Got Law? How Hillary Clinton's Lawlessness Gets Ignored...

Hillary Clinton breaks the law, gets people who work for her killed, lies to the American people...and she's still a media darling? How is that possible?

Blog Author's Comments -- Hillary Clinton, if not arrested first, will probably be the Democratic Party's nominee for the 2016 Presidential election. But with the ‘baggage’ she has and constant lies she tells, it seems to me if the Republican Party wakes up and puts together a solid plan to defeat her it should happen. So far she has escaped without any serious problems because of her contact and connections with the Obama administration and what she knows. This is saving her from any serious charges.

The Republican Party needs to get their heads out of the sand and constantly hammer on Clinton and Obama, telling the American public until the election is over what they have done. If the voters care what happens to their country they should be able to see what Clinton, Obama and others have gotten away with and vote for the Republican nominee. The hard core progressives will back Clinton but hopefully there are enough sane voters still left who will vote for the Republican nominee so the Democrats can be defeated, and the work can begin, trying to repair some of the damage which has been done by Obama and the Democrats.

It’s times like these that I wonder whether the Attorney General position should be an elected office, and that the entire Justice Department should be removed from the Executive Branch. No president should be able to allow his direct reports to flout the law, and then use the AG to simply “give them a pass” like Obama has done with so many members of his corrupt administration.

Obama Defends #blacklivesmatter Movement To Police

Truth Revolt -- While speaking to law enforcement officials on Thursday, President Obama defended the Black Lives Matter movement, saying it is addressing an issue that has been ignored for too long.

"There is a specific problem that is happening in the African-American community that is not happening in other communities, and that is a legitimate issue that we've got to address."

"The African-American community is not just making this up. It's not something that's just being politicized. It's real," Obama said. "We as a society, particularly given our history. have to take this seriously."

The President tried to balance the conflicts between the police and the Black Lives Matter movement.

"I think everybody understands all lives matter. Everybody wants strong, effective law enforcement. Everybody wants their kids to be safe when they're walking to school. Nobody wants to see police officers who are doing their job, fairly, hurt. Everybody understands it's a dangerous job," he said

Obama spoke on a White House panel by moderated by former New York Times editor Bill Keller. Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck and U.S. Attorney John Walsh of Colorado also appeared on the panel with the President.

The problem is not just with the police, said Obama. "We can't put the entire onus of the problem on law enforcement," he said. "I think there's been a healthy debate about police-community relations, and some of the episodes we've seen across the country. But we as a society, if we're not investing in opportunities for poorer kids, and then we expect police and prosecutors to keep them out of sight and out of mind, that's a failed strategy."
Blog Author's Comments -- 'Black Lives Matter' members shot police in Ferguson and New York, chanted death threats against police. They have advocated looting as a policy and have been behind protests which have done millions of dollars in damage in multiple cities. This is what Obama is defending. And he will not show strong support for the police who have to face this every day. He does not want to upset his people.

"There is a specific problem that is happening in the African-American community that is not happening in other communities, and that is a legitimate issue that we've got to address.” I agree. When 13% of the population is responsible for approximately 70% of the violent crime taking place in America, it's definitely a problem. So what does Obama do about it? He makes it worse by his defense of the black thugs. I cannot see that the percentage of black shootings, killings and crime will ever be reversed.

Benjamin Netanyahu’s Reply To A BBC Reporter
About Negotiating With Abbas Is Pure Gold

BBC News -- The BBC didn’t write much about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s tell-it-like-it-is answer to its reporter’s question about why he doesn’t return to the negotiating table with the Palestinians.

The British network said Netanyahu “angrily questioned” Lyse Doucet, noting that he’s been “calling day in, day out, in every forum… I’ve called on President Abbas to resume unconditional negotiations immediately.”

But the exchange was even better than that.

“Are we living on the same planet?” Netanyahu incredulously snapped at her question, adding that he’s called on Abbas to resume talks at the United Nations, the U.S. Congress, in Jerusalem, in Tel Aviv. “I haven’t done so in Nepal, because I haven’t visited it.”

“I’ve called on President Abbas to resume unconditional negotiations immediately. Right now, as we speak, we can meet. I have no problem with that. I think we should stop immediately this wave of incitement against Israel and these attacks…I’m willing to meet him, he’s not willing to meet me,” he continued.

“And you ask me about the resumption of negotiations? Come on, get with the program. These people don’t want negotiations. They’re inciting for violence. Direct your questions to them.”
Blog Author's Comments -- The BBC reporter was chastised because of her lame question to Benjamin Netanyahu and rightly so. He said "come on, get with the program. These people don’t want negotiations. They’re inciting for violence." It really is too bad that America does not have a leader who is even close to the quality of Netanyahu, what a great country we could once again be. Every time I see or hear him speak it reminds me of what a real leader is and how pathetic and weak Barack Obama is.

Abbas the President of the State of Palestine does not care if they reach "agreement" with Israel much like Arafat. Abbas has no intention of living up to any "agreement" they would reach, so he continues the attacks on Israel. That is just what the Muslims do. And the Secretary of State, John Kerry, with direction from Obama continues to blame Israel for the problems between Israel and Palestine as though it is the fault of Israel. I think that I know which side Obama is on.

Sen. Ted Cruz: Democrat Debate Was More Socialism, Pacifism, Weakness

Excellent assessment by Senator Cruz about the state of the Democrat party. Keep your eye on him, he’s running a very steady, determined and focused campaign. His deliberate approach continues to pay off.
Blog Author's Comments -- Ted Cruz said - "We’re seeing our freedoms taken away every day" and the Democrat debate was an audition "for who would wear the jackboot most vigorously." No better description of the liberal group running for president.

They want to spend more money and from what I have seen they are trying to see who can promise to give their ignorant voters the most free stuff. “Every one of the Democratic candidates is agreed on doubling down on the failed Obama strategies." "So it was really quite interesting for America to see each and every Democratic candidate explain how they’re every bit as socialist as Bernie Sanders is.”

If Hillary Clinton is the Democrat nominee, and if she would win, she will govern just as Obama has for his two terms in office and he has been the worst president in the history of our country doing all he can to trash America.

School Suspends Eighth-Grader For Wearing Shirt Supporting Troops

Mediaite--An Oregon middle schooler was suspended recently for wearing a shirt to school supporting American troops because the shirt had a picture of a rifle on it.

Alan Holmes‘ shirt read ‘Standing for those who stood for us,’ and featured an image of a “battlefield cross,” an arrangement of a troop’s boots, helmet, and gun that commonly serves as a memorial for fallen comrades. But Dexter McCarty Middle School’s vice principal and principal asked Holmes to change.

The eighth-grader — whose brother served in the Marines — refused to change into a school shirt. “They won’t let us support the people who keep us free, I’m not going to support them,” he told a local Fox affiliate.

When his father learned the reason his son was suspended, he defended Alan and went to the press. “I would have done the same thing,” he said.
Blog Author's Comments -- Do adults still run most schools? Over the past few years in many schools it does not seem so. The theme of the shirt was support for our military, not support for guns. I feel sad for my country when I realize that there are so many terrible "educators" in charge of the children in many schools.

Hillary Clinton Could Be The Next Liar-In-Chief

Blog Author's Comments - Is Hillary Clinton a pathological liar? I believe she is. The problem is she is not very good at it. Those who follow politics and think for themselves know what she is. But, the same people who voted for Obama as President twice could vote for her no matter what she has done. I am hopeful that some Democrats wake up and realize the type of person Clinton is and vote to save our country.

Pelosi Promotes Transfer Of Gitmo Detainees
To U.S. Soil, Citing 'Economic Opportunity'

Free Beacon -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said Tuesday that Illinois residents would welcome the transfer of Guantanamo Bay detainees to their state because of the “economic opportunity” their detention would provide.

“The people in Illinois were looking forward to having some people transferred there—they saw it as economic opportunity, as you may recall,” Pelosi said during her weekly press conference.

Democrats have been working to help President Obama fulfill his pledge to close the prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The military has been told to speed up its review of the prison’s 114 detainees so they can be transferred elsewhere.

The U.S. classifies Guantanamo Bay detainees as enemy combatants. Democrats have long objected to the treatment of these detainees, many of whom have not been tried in U.S. criminal court. Instead, detainees are usually tried before separate military commissions, although some are held without charge under the authority of the Authorization for Use of Military Force passed by Congress following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Blog Author's Comments - Economic opportunity? Who stands to benefit from this opportunity? Oh wait, the lawyers. Perhaps this delusional woman would like the terrorists transferred to her district in California.

Bill Whittle On Guns, Global Homicide Rates, And Gun Control

Back in January, this Firewall video by Bill Whittle on guns and homicide rates globally was posted. In light of the current acrimonious debate about gun control after the recent shooting at an Oregon community college, now seems an appropriate time to repost Whittle's words of wisdom.

Blog Author's Comments - Perhaps someone should send this video to the President when he talks about passing more gun laws. Also, gun-free zones which the liberals think are great are actually useless but they don't seem to understand that these will never work. 92% of mass shootings since 2009 have occurred in gun-free zones. What Wayne Lapierre of the NRA said is quite true…”the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.” The common sense conclusion is that more gun control laws will not stop the person who wants to commit a mass shooting or the many criminals that exist within our society.

After Every Mass Shooting, WaPo Sends Out Its Gun Control Message

Truth Revolt -- The dust has barely settled on the Umpqua Community College campus in Oregon after Thursday's mass shooting but The Washington Post is already sending out its "11 essential facts about guns and mass shootings in America."

It's something they have already done previously and promise to do after every mass shooting. Adapted to reflect the most recent incident, they once again hope to "explore America's unique role among advanced countries as a place where support for guns is widespread -- as is violence involving firearms."

Provided are 11 questions with answers about gun violence in the U.S. and gun control. In some cases, these answers just point to another liberally biased publication, Mother Jones, and the information they've gathered in charts and graphs compiled about shooting sprees in America.

"America is an unusually violent country," and "the South is the most violent region in the United States," are just some of the provided information courtesy of WaPo, ensuring the narrative is clear; gun-nuts love guns and love to shoot people, because "more guns tend to mean more homicide."

But Americans will probably just end up continuing to cling to their guns and religion, and the Post admits that, too: "Shootings don't tend to substantially affect views on gun control."

"In fact," the article concludes, "for the first in more than 20 years, Americans showed more support for gun rights than gun control."

The Second Amendment is indeed a tough pill to swallow for liberals.
Blog Author's Comments -- The Washington Post probably has an anti-gun article generator program installed on every computer on site that can spit out something at a moments notice. What else would one expect from this far left paper? The leftists don't seem to understand that all mass shootings cannot be stopped. Less than six hours after the mass shooting in Roseburg, Ore., President Obama called a press conference to demand new gun laws. Is anyone surprised at this? The school was just what the left wants, a 'gun free zone' where everyone is powerless against a mad man with a gun who wants to kill as many people as he can. But, Obama and the Democrats want to hurt the law-abiding gun owners.

Gun control laws have not worked nor will they work to curb tragedies such as this either in mass or individually, for at their heart they target law-abiding citizens rather than the miscreants who would use a gun to deprive others of their lives or property. Additional gun control laws to place heavier restrictions on those who abide by the law only invites more, not less gun violence. Many politicians coldly ignore the obvious to score political points and jump at the chance to never let a crisis or tragedy go to waste.
