Hypocrisy Illustrated

President Obama is calling for more gun control laws...citing it as one of the most frustrated, most stymied area of his presidency.

Washington (CNN)One of President Barack Obama’s greatest frustrations is his inability to pass stricter gun laws, he told the BBC Thursday just hours before a mass shooting in a Louisiana theater.

“If you ask me where is the one area where I feel that I have been most frustrated and most stymied, it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient, common sense, gun safety laws,” Obama said. “Even in the face of repeated mass killings.”

Of course, what he doesn’t address is the fact his administration has enabled multiple criminals including the assailant in Garland Texas !! For those of you who might not know; Garland is only 40 miles or so from Bunker BS.

Five years before he was shot to death in the failed terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, Nadir Soofi walked into a suburban Phoenix gun shop to buy a 9-millimeter pistol.

At the time, Lone Wolf Trading Co. was known among gun smugglers for selling illegal firearms. And with Soofi’s history of misdemeanor drug and assault charges, there was a chance his purchase might raise red flags in the federal screening process.

Inside the store, he fudged some facts on the form required of would-be gun buyers.

What Soofi could not have known was that Lone Wolf was at the center of a federal sting operation known as Fast and Furious, targeting Mexican drug lords and traffickers. The idea of the secret program was to allow Lone Wolf to sell illegal weapons to criminals and straw purchasers, and track the guns back to large smuggling networks and drug cartels.

Five years – this wasn’t a “hey, he bought the gun and did something the next day.” this was years ago. With the government knowing who sold the gun and who bought the gun.

Soofi’s attempt to buy a gun caught the attention of authorities, who slapped a seven-day hold on the transaction, according to his Feb. 24, 2010, firearms transaction record, which was reviewed by the Los Angeles Times. Then, for reasons that remain unclear, the hold was lifted after 24 hours, and Soofi got the 9-millimeter.

As the owner of a small pizzeria, the Dallas-born Soofi, son of a Pakistani American engineer and American nurse, would not have been the primary focus of federal authorities, who back then were looking for smugglers and drug lords.


They had reasons to believe he was prohibited. Other reports mention some type of charge/conviction against Soofi, the failed terrorist. They placed a hold and then lifted it 24 hours later. And apparently failed to follow up on it in 5 years.

A day after the attack, the Department of Justice sent an “urgent firearms disposition request” to Lone Wolf, seeking more information about Soofi and the pistol he bought in 2010, according to a June 1 letter from Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, to U.S. Atty. Gen. Loretta Lynch.

Though the request did not specify whether the gun was used in the Garland attack, Justice Department officials said the information was needed “to assist in a criminal investigation,” according to Johnson’s letter, also reviewed by The Times.

Hey President Obama, before you start pushing for more gun control laws; how about you and your administration follow the ones already on the books !!!!



Government Competency?

Yeah, that is the reason why I want to trust my life only to the government by letting them have the only firearms (besides the criminals) – the government always gets things right……

PLANO — News 8 has learned that a federal grand jury in the Eastern District of Texas illegally charged 109 people in 2011 and 2013. The jury stayed in session because of a bureaucratic error after its term had expired.

Federal grand juries evaluate evidence presented to them by prosecutors and decide whether to issue criminal charges against suspects. The juries — which operate in secret — consist of 23 people, selected from the general population. Each jury is empaneled for 18 or 24 months.

The Plano grand juries passed the 24-month mark and continued to indict into their 25th month, nullifying charges made during that month.

“We concede that we’ve made a mistake,” Bales told News 8.

Although there are several grand juries in the sprawling Eastern District, only the Plano panels exceeded their 24-month limit.

Not one grand jury panel but two in a row went past their allotted time. And the people enforcing the law set such great examples, don’t they?

PLANO — A Plano police officer who was arrested Wednesday morning now faces charges of driving while intoxicated and evading police.

Byron Betler, a 10-year veteran of the department, had crashed his vehicle near the corner of Hedgecoxe and Robinson roads. He was off-duty when he was arrested by his colleagues. 

Details about how the department’s 2006 Rookie of the Year attempted to evade police were not available.


Look I understand this is probably not typical of the way the federal government or most officers act. The problem is there are enough examples of both types of bad behaviors for people to realize that the government can not always be counted on to get things right. Human beings are fallible; systems of governance made up of human beings are also.

If there is going to be the possibility of the government not getting it right; I simply want the government to be the back up regarding my safety and that of my family.

Please join the discussion.

Lies of the Antis – Part 89,002….

or higher. I loose track. This news article has two of my lies the anti rights cultists tell often.

#1 — That defensive gun uses really don’t happen.
#2 — That even if you carry/have a firearm; it won’t do you any good once the criminal(s) drop on you.


One of the other things that came out of this anecdote is the how the firearm provided an equalization; one elderly man was able to overcome the actions of 3 younger – and one of them armed – men.

The news media is starting to cover more and more of these stories; actually reporting on the specifics instead of playing up the “man with gun kills choir boy turning his life around” angles.

P.S. – anyone else catch another lie – this one wasn’t stated in the report or the victims words?

Couple of Questions Mr. Obama.

……you said these types of killings don’t happen in other developed countries.

Gunmen stormed a beer hall in northern Mexico in broad daylight on Friday, killing 10 people before stripping the bodies and stealing all their money, police said.

Several armed men arrived in two vehicles before attacking people inside the bar in the municipality of Garcia at around 3pm, an official in the state prosecutor’s office said.

The assailants stripped seven bodies naked and left with 10,000 pesos ($650) in cash, the official said on condition of anonymity.

So does this killing not count because Mexico isn’t “developed”?
Or does it not count because there wasn’t an obvious race issue involved?
Or does it not count because Mexico has the type of restrictive gun control laws you only dream about?

Shot But By….

…..possibly his accomplices?

Sounds like it from the report unless some neighbor had a shotgun involved.

That’s Gonna Add A Few Bucks…..

….to the insurance bill.


A teenage driver made quite the splash as he drove into his next door neighbor’s swimming pool.

The 17-year-old tearaway was speeding away from an accident he had caused just moments earlier on the road when he then got into deep water all of his own making as he plowed through a fence an into his neighbors backyard on Wednesday afternoon.

The boy was driving 2009 Chevrolet four-door when the car hit a Hyundai. Thens as he sped away from the scene he lost control of his car before it came to an exeedingly wet end..


There are more pictures at the link.
What do you think? Qualifies as the “Doofus Driver of the Day”?

It’s Wrong, I Shouldn’t Laugh……

…..but seldom has Karma been delivered so fast.

Two would-be suicide bombers have died in Pakistan after an explosive device detonated as they fought each other, it has been reported.

The two men were killed in an explosion near Khayam Chowk in Sargodha, in the country’s Punjab province on Saturday morning.

Eyewitnesses claim the men, who were believed to have been wearing suicide vests, were sitting on a bench engaged in discussion before their deaths.

I will spend a little extra time doing penitence this week……how long depends on how I can stop laughing.
