The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today. “As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,” Holder told reporters.

His loathing for McCain has a long history. “I don’t like him,” Tancredo said. “He is not a very pleasant person. He is nasty, mean; the skin of an onion would look deep compared to his. He has a short fuse, he is almost peculiarly unstable.”
He still remembers his first encounter with the senator from Arizona. In 1999, Tancredo was elected to the House with 54 percent of the votes in his Colorado district. “When you win with less than 55 percent of the vote, you are seen as vulnerable. So then the party will go out to the superstars and say, can you please pick one or two vulnerables and do a fundraiser for them.” Somebody in McCain’s office picked him. “And I go, that’s great!” Tancredo recalled.
One day, he went over to the Senate and bumped into McCain in the elevator. “I had never met him. So I shake his hand to thank him for doing the fundraiser.” The senator then asked if he could count on Tancredo’s support for McCain-Feingold (a bipartisan campaign reform act McCain had drafted with Democratic senator Russell Feingold). Tancredo opposed this proposed regulation of political campaign financing, and he told McCain. “So I go: ‘I am voting no, I don’t like it. I actually think it’s terrible’.”
“It was like a bomb went off in his head. He exploded! He was screaming at me! It was, ‘When I come across the f**king street, you are…’ And, ‘You don’t know what the f**k you are talking about!’ And I said, ‘What?!’ I was just so taken aback. But then I went after him: ‘Hey, nobody told me you are coming to help me for a quid pro quo for a shit bill!’ It just got worse. It was really bad, I remember us getting out of the elevator and people stepped back way up because they couldn’t handle the screaming.”
The two never reconciled. “From there, it only went downhill,” according to Tancredo.

Sher Zieve says that for the first time since the loyalists to King George III and the British army moved against the American colonists and patriots, the government is moving en masse to both stop and silence any opposition from the American people to Obama and any and all of his and his Marxist-Democrats.
While watching Thursday’s faux Obama-organized Health Care Summit (planned as a day of photo-ops and sound-bites for Obama’s 2012 campaign), it became clear to me and others that the Democrat leadership had and have no intention of listening to sound arguments against the ObamaCare Death Plan, Cap & Trade or any of the other ulterior-motive clandestine procedures they have planned against We-the-People.
Instead, Harry Reid had already announced the day before — Wednesday — that he and the Dems would affect reconciliation (the “ramming and shoving” process), probably next week, in the Senate in order to force the despotic ObamaCare Death Plan onto us. Note: Reconciliation — incorporating a simple and not a super majority — is supposed to be used for budgetary items.
In fact, this Obama “summit” quickly degraded and devolved into Obama shutting down any Republican who offered alternate proposals and opposing comments, while Democrats engaged in ongoing “kiss the tyrant” moments. In fact, Obama told Republicans that he could speak as long as he wanted because…”I’m the president!” Apparently, the rest of the Democrat leadership believed the same about their own self-inflated self-importance as comment-time from the far-left was twice as long as comments from the right. Note: That’s also “right” as in “correct.”
During Thursday’s Health Care Summit, I viewed the patently totalitarian Marxist-Democrat Party telling We-the-People that we no longer matter to them. Our voices are — once and for all per the Democrats — of no further importance. Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Dictator-in-Chief Obama made it crystal clear that the American people WILL accept whatever draconian plans they force upon them — and like it — or else. Each and every time the questioning and contradictions from the right to false statements made by the dictator-in-chief became too uncomfortable for his fragile ego’ or simply presented the truth in too bright a light, Obama shut down the questioner with reprimands similar to “you’re off of the subject” or “stop your talking points” or “the campaign is over and I won.”
During much of the time Representative Eric Cantor (R-VA) was quoting directly from one of the voluminous Democrat ObamaCare plans, Obama refused to make eye contact with him and, with increasingly tightly-pursed lips, started shuffling through some of the papers in front of him. Note: This was a Judge Judy moment. Whenever this happens on her television show, Judge Judy Sheindlin says sternly to the offender: “Put down your papers and look at me!” Wish she’d been there.
As long as any of the Marxist-Democrat Party members are in power, their abuses of said power will continue to escalate. This is what despots do. When asked at the ObamaSummit if the Democrat leadership was even listening to the American people, the response was either silence or a quick change of the subject.
Not since the first American Revolution War officially began in 1775 has the oppression against We-the-People from the government been so intense and so relentless. Now, for the first time in our history, the majority leadership within the US Government is moving against its own people with increasing alacrity, force and determination. They have told us and continue to shout to us in myriad ways that they will refuse to listen to anything we say unless it is to thank them (our new “masters”) for placing us into bondage and slavery.
BC Burned In A Fire?
Sky News’ Dissembler and Propagandist
As you folks know, I have spent the last two years researching the life and times of the ObamaMessiah, and today I just learned something new. Barack Obama’s birth certificate was destroyed in a fire.
In an article, entitled, “Obama ‘Birther’ Row Rears Its Head Again,” Greg Milam, identified as a “U. S correspondent” for Sky News, the British version of Fox News, has just introduced a whole new reason for Obama not presenting his birth certificate to confirm his eligibility — it was burned in a fire! — poor Barack — everything seems to happen to him.

In a lifetime of associations of nearly exclusively unsavory characters, poet and pornographer Frank Marshall Davis ranks among the least savory of the lot.
Davis was a communist, poet, alcoholic, sexual deviant, and fomenter of racial hatred. Cleverly disguised as Frank in Dreams, we learn that young Barry was treated to Davis’s counsel on numerous occasions. Dear Grandpa Stanley, blessed with an inordinate amount of free time, thanks to his wife’s hard work, enjoyed whiling away the hours with Davis, drinking and smoking pot.
In yet another series of twists and loops, Davis was born in Kansas, as were the Dunhams. It is not entirely clear whether Davis and Dunham knew each other in Kansas. Davis, an unabashed admirer of the Soviet Union, member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), and cultivator of racial hatred, worked as a columnist in Chicago, where he fancied himself someone of great importance.

The provisions, set to expire Sunday without the signature of Obama, include extensions to allow: -1) “roving” wiretaps, permitting surveillance on multiple phones and e-mail addresses. -2) court-approved seizures of records and property in anti-terrorism operations.
