Volunteering as cannibal food. China power grid attack would allow anti-gunners to demonstrate convictions

Under an open-ended shutdown, the population would essentially be on its own until such time as all systems can be brought back up. That could be quite some time. That means those unprepared to sustain themselves for an indefinite period would be faced with urgent decisions of basic survival. Under such circumstances, the prospects for widespread and extended looting and rioting would become near-certainties. For their part, the authorities still on the job -- and Hurricane Katrina demonstrated the potential for mass desertions when personal incentives outweigh those of public duty -- will be triaged where directed. Outlying areas, or areas ceded to chaos because they’re not deemed absolutely essential to retake and secure, will be on their own.

Russia turns to guns to stem high murder rate

Previously permitted for sporting purposes such as target practice and hunting, Russians, the story claims, will now be lawfully allowed to carry guns for self defense.

Email Proves that White House, DOJ Targeted Reporter Sharyl Attkisson

"One of the documents provides smoking gun proof that the Obama White House and the Eric Holder Justice Department colluded to get CBS News to block reporter Sharyl Attkisson. Attkisson was one of the few mainstream media reporters who paid any attention to the deadly gun-running scandal."

And in further explication of the previous: "The Republicans will not fight."

But the Republicans will not fight. In fact, what the Republicans are proposing as a strategy to combat the president is to let it happen, and then go through an elaborate theater to let it keep happening. They will, once they have fully funded the government, try to undo the funding. This is called a rescission. But the president will veto it and the Republicans will fail to override the vote, so Republicans can say they opposed the president, but funded him nonetheless.

"Apparently, America now has its first emperor. And he has issued an imperial order to dissolve America's borders."

In his attempt to troll the hard right, Obama has actually handed them a wonderful gift by killing comprehensive immigration reform dead. Legislative amnesty is finished, it’s done, it’s pining for the fjords. Conservative Republicans get to finally advance border and enforcement reforms without even dealing with those here illegally! It’s just what the Bob Goodlattes of the world have wanted to do all along: ditch the clunky amnesty tradeoffs and deal with citizenship issues last, only after securing the border. It’s the Republican establishment, consultant and donor classes, and the Chamber who are closest to the blast radius on this, turning anyone viewed as pro-amnesty toxic overnight. They will be viewed by the GOP base as supportive of the president’s overreach despite all denials (“I was in favor of what he did but not how he did it” is always a weak position), which will make for some very awkward defenses in the 2016 stakes.
I have been asked, "Yeah, Mike, so what do we do NOW?" Do? Why the same things you had better have been doing all along -- training, organizing, networking, seeing to your logistics. I am reminded of the old saying "When Your Enemy Is in the Process of Destroying Himself, Stay Out of His Way."
Obama has just taken another huge whack out of his own Mandate of Heaven. Enjoy it. Use the opportunity to point out to you previously skeptical friends that this imperial tyranny will only get worse -- the GOP being what it is* -- and that they have only themselves to rely on and they'd better get with the program PDQ.
What will I do to refute Obama's power-mad tyrannical grab? Why I'm going to try to hit two Black Friday sales of .22 Long Rifle ammunition instead of just one. You wanna fight tyranny? Then you'd better be about the business of getting ready to shoot back.
*(For example, see “It only takes a couple” of comments for an unflattering narrative to build about the Republican response, said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). “That’s the trouble with having some of these new, young punks around here. They ought to listen to us old geezers.” It is not only Emperor Barack who will be discrediting himself here, but the pro-illegal GOP elites as well.)

Does Florida outlaw a militia becoming 'well-regulated'?

Prosecutors told jurors that they didn't have to prove a specific plan, just show the group was doing the training for some sort of civil disorder.
Guess I'll have to make time to go to Florida and train some militia again.

Betcherass it is.

Pratt Says Threatening Politicians Is 'What The Second Amendment Is All About'

History rarely exactly repeats itself. It does, however, often echo. "The time has come to change the tones of submission into tones of defiance."

Rev. Jermain Wesley Loguen on why “I Won't Obey the Fugitive Slave Law”
Whatever may be your decision, my ground is taken. I have declared it everywhere. It is known over the state and out of the state—over the line in the North, and over the line in the South. I don't respect this law—I don't fear it—I won't obey it! It outlaws me, and I outlaw it, and the men who attempt to enforce it on me. I place the governmental officials on the ground that they place me. I will not live a slave, and if force is employed to re-enslave me, I shall make preparations to meet the crisis as becomes a man.

School Handout: 'The Government Gives Us Rights'

Because the government gives us rights, we have the duty to be good citizens.

Whaaat? Is global warming going the route of Al and Tipper's marriage? NASA Admits That Winters are Going to Get Colder…Much Colder.

"If these scientists are correct, we are heading into a period of bitterly cold winters and much cooler summers. Imagine year after year of ‘polar vortex’ winters that start early, finish late and deliver unprecedented cold across the country. Cool wet summers will affect food production, as will floods from the melting snow when spring finally arrives."
Casey asserts that there is mounting evidence that the Earth is getting cooler due to a decline in solar activity. He warns in his latest book, Dark Winter, that a major alteration of global climate has already started and that, at a minimum, it is likely to last 30 years.
Casey predicts food shortages and civil unrest caused by those shortages due largely to governments not preparing for the issues that colder weather will bring. He also predicts that wickedly bitter winter temperatures will see demand for electricity and heating outstrip the supply.
This reminds me of the scenario in John Ringo's The Last Centurion.
And I can still hear Minnesotans for Global Warming playing "We All Need Some Global Warming."

Rand doesn't stand

The Kentucky senator helped block NSA reform. Now civil liberties groups are feeling betrayed.

"The country's going to go nuts, because they're going to see it as a move outside the authority of the president, and it's going to be a very serious situation. (Y)ou could see instances of anarchy. You could see violence."

Don't they EVER learn? Will Judenrat Sebastian and the NRA repeat their inaction on the Holder nomination with his replacement?

Key issues report and Giuliani endorsement add to gun owner concerns with Lynch
The question then becomes who will have the guts to lead that fight? The newly-empowered Republican leadership? A national gun rights advocacy group like NRA, which wields power to score confirmation votes?
Based on past experience, don’t expect either to act unless gun owners demand it of them. Don’t expect gun owners to do that unless they know about these concerns. And don’t expect them to know unless gun owners who do take it on themselves to tell them.
Unlike what happened last time.
What David is referring to is this piece of cowardly prag foolishness from 2009: The Holder Battle and the NRA.
There will be times when it is necessary to fight with no hope of victory, but members should ask themselves whether they’d rather have NRA go down swinging trying unsuccessfully to defeat Holder, enhancing the paper tiger meme, or whether they’d prefer NRA preserve its political capital to defeat gun control bills?
Ah, yes, and we know how well Holder turned out. Again, there is NO NRA INACTION that Sebastian won't apologize in advance for. What a cowardly suckass.
"Our preemptive surrender shall not be questioned."

Kneeling.

So, should we pity the poor unionized gunmakers whose labor bosses gave millions to elect gun controllers over the years?

Remington CEO: New York’s anti-gun policies drove us to Alabama

Anti-gun, anti-hunting agendas both depend on lies

Gun rights advocates have for years been understandably contemptuous of "Fudds"--hunters who cannot be bothered to fight against attacks on gun rights, as long as their hunting guns are left alone. Fudds have even been known to actively participate in the attacks so-called "assault weapons," "high capacity" magazines, etc., presumably hoping that by feeding other gun owners to the crocodile first, they can avoid the jaws forever. The rest of us know better. Anti-gun politicians also get useful cover from the Fudds, when they argue that, "You don't need an 'assault weapon to hunt deer"--as if that makes banning the most effective militia arms acceptable.

Judenrat Sebastian at "Shall Not Be Questioned" has a brilliant solution to Bloomberg's initiative offensive: Preemptive Surrender.

Sebastian, the NRA's favorite "pragmatist" defender on the Internet, has discovered to his consternation something that David Codrea reported back in August: Bloomberg's targeting Nevada with another ballot initiative.
And what is Sebastian's solution? Why, compromise, of course. He writes, "Develop a more acceptable compromise bill that implements background checks upon change of title, but without the registration component, which is far more dangerous."
This tracks with many things he has said for years. Long-time readers may recall this gem:
As a member, I expect the National Rifle Association to fight gun control in the 111th Congress. If they have to get down on their hands and knees and kiss Harry Reid’s rosey red ass as part of a deal to stop a gun control bill, I’ll buy them the lip balm.
The rank-and-file firearm owners in Washington state are lining up to risk arrest to defy the new law and Sebastian is trying to cut deals that preemptively surrenders the issue in another state. In fact, there is a group in Nevada organizing to oppose Bloomberg. But does Sebastian support them? Oh, nooo. He'd rather sell them out ahead if time as a "strategy."
No wonder the Lairds of Fairfax love this guy. There is nothing he wouldn't compromise on, as long as it's someone else's rights and the dues money keeps flowing. One wonders what it really is that Sebastian refers to when he names his blog "shall not be questioned." Is he referring to his cowardice? Well, there you are. I certainly don't question THAT.

My interview on Battleroad Radio last night.

I was tired and rambled more than a bit, but I think I got the points across.
