Obama Attorney for Oregon: “OK With Universal Background Checks and Limits to Magazine Clips”

From Daylight Disinfectant

Published on Oct 22, 2014

Obama appointed US District Attorney Amanda Marshall: “I think we need a bunch of Oregonian guys in flannel shirts with rifles out there, and trucks,… saying: “Hey I’m OK with, you know, Universal Background Checks and limits to magazine clips …”

Dateline Tuesday October 21, 2014 – Portland Oregon: In this Volume 2 of highlights from the Gabby Giffords event, we look at just what legislation is envisioned by the folks around the table. Representative Smith Warner states: “I’m glad to be here to talk to all of you about what we can do in the legislature next year.” The group then speaks to what change needs to be made to share the Oregon gun database with the feds. Remember, theoretically this database does not exist.

Judy Shiprack, Multnomah County Commissioner, District 3, calls Representative Warner on the carpet asking her just what she’s going to do about it. Rep. Smith Warner suggests: “If the problem came from an Administrative ruling, can the solution come from an administrative ruling as well?” (Watch for that slight of hand in the next legislative session). Representative Smith warner then nods along is ascention as Erin Greenwald, Attorney for Oregon Department of Justice, suggests changes to State law which would allow Law Enforcement to confiscate weapons without a person ever having been convicted of a crime. Vanessa Timmons of Oregon Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, echoes the sentiments, leaving no doubt that group’s goal is to make the Oregon Law the same as the Federal Law.

U.S. Attorney S. Amanda Marshall, takes a poke at Oregon Sheriffs, lamenting the fact that they will not enforce Unconstitutional Federal Laws. (For someone who is not supposed to be advocating legislation, Attorney Marshall seems to be taking some pretty strongly held positions in her official capacity.) In an exchange with Gabby Giffords the Oregon Sheriffs are derided with laughter and compared with Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Robert Yuille, one of four board members of “Gun Owners for Responsible Ownership” is quoted as saying we need to change the culture, but in the end: “”Certainly we need registration!” In a rare moment of honesty, the Marshall states: “”The truth is: More kids die every year in swimming pools.” (So why are we here again?). Shiprack then brings up her advocacy for limits to Magazine Capacity limitations like those they have jammed through in Connecticut. It’s clear that Attorney Marshall, although she’s not there to advocate legislation, is all in favor of that as well.

Democratic turnout flyer: ‘If you want to prevent another Ferguson…’

Originally posted on Political Insider blog:

The Democratic effort to pump up the African-American vote in Georgia just took an interesting turn.

A reader has sent us this early-voting turnout mailer sent out by the Georgia Democratic party that focuses on the shooting of Michael Brown and subsequent unrest in Ferguson, Mo. It contains an interesting line that concedes the problem of low interest among black voters:

“If we want a better, safer future for our children, it’s up to us to vote for change. The choices may not always be perfect, but the cost of inaction is simply too great.”

Here’s a complete look:

I-594: Background Check “Loopholes”? Much Ado About Nothing

Featured Image -- 1788

Originally posted on The Right Argument:

This is the second post in a three-part series on I-594, a Washington State ballot initiative that would require background checks on all state gun sales and transfers. The first post delved into commentary regarding several implications of the proposed law, and can be found here. Later this week, part three will cover various philosophical aspects of gun ownership in general, and how I-594 would impact it.

In geometry, the shortest distance between two points may in fact be a straight line, but in political discourse, the shortest distance between everything wrong in America and Shangri-La are those dreaded “loopholes”.

And why not? For if there’s a culprit in every injustice, for some, “loopholes” fill that role quite well indeed. Warren Buffet purportedly pays less tax than his poor secretary? “Loopholes”, they cry. Burger King gobbling up Canadian coffee and doughnut store Tim Horton’s to skirt fiscally chilling U.S. corporate…

WTF: Oregon’s First Lady admits she had a sham marriage with an immigrant for money

It looks like things just got really, really awkward for Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber of Oregon. His fiancée, Cylvia Hayes, admitted yesterday to entering into a sham marriage with an immigrant for cash:

Even worse, it was with a guy with two first-names. Who does that?

Note, Abraham-squared was 18 at the time of the “marriage,” Ms. Hayes 29. That didn’t raise any red flags with immigration officials? 

And it looks like Gov. Kitzhaber gets his news of major of events the same way as President Obama — from the newspaper:

Polyphonic Singing — the human ability you didn’t know existed

Featured Image -- 1784

Originally posted on Rare:

Anna-Maria Hefele is an amazing German singer with a very unique talent. She has trained her voice to the point where she can sing two notes at once. It’s known as polyphonic overtone singing, and not many people can do it. In fact, before you succumbed to this amazing piece of click bait you’ve most likely never heard of it before.

Hefele’s life has always been centered around music. Her family are musical instrument makers, and studied music all throughout college. With intense practice she was able to achieve something that almost sounds inhuman.

As Hefele demonstrates, polyphonic overtones happen when you manipulate the resonant cavities of the mouth, larynx, and pharynx. I can’t begin to figure out how to manipulate those in weird ways, much less point them out on a diagram, so it’s impressive all around.

‘This is horrifying’: Frank Luntz shares YouGov favorability ratings [correction appended]

Correction: The title of this post has been changed to reflect that the polling data cited comes from a YouGov poll and not Frank Luntz’ organization. Text within the post stating that the data was from a Frank Luntz poll has also been corrected to cite the correct source of the information. The original title of this post was “‘This is horrifying’: Pollster Frank Luntz releases latest favorability ratings.”

Twitchy apologizes to Mr. Luntz and our readers for the inaccuracy.

Frank Luntz shared polling data from YouGov showing favorability numbers for some likely 2016 candidates, and it’s not pretty.

It started with Obama advising ISIS to ‘pin notes on [hostages] chests.’ It ended with this brutal mockery

Featured Image -- 1771

Originally posted on Twitchy:

No, really. That actually happened.

The shake fisty is strong with this one. That’s right: President Obama pretended he was an “adviser to ISIS” and his big plan was for terrorists to pin notes on the chests of hostages. NOTES. On chests.

The mockery was swift and spectacular. Hey, we have to laugh so as to avoid curling up in the fetal position while weeping.

Stop Focusing on the Wrong Things


Hi there, I’m a progressive. I’m feeling pretty darn good these days. I’ve had about 100 years of influence and I’m really seeing the fruits of my labor pay off. I’ve got control of education, popular culture and most of the federal, state and local government right where I want them. All I need now is for you pesky holdouts to fight amongst yourselves and dither on about the things that YOU disagree about and while you’re otherwise occupied picking at those things… Well, I’m just going to see my people walk right back into their places and finally cement that last brick comfortably into place. Thanks for playing and find your place in line.
