Rahm Emanuel presses banks on guns
Politico, by Jonathan Martin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/26/2013 4:27:18 AM

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, moving to take a lead role in the gun control debate, is turning up the pressure on banks that do business with firearms manufacturers. Emanuel is sending letters to two major financial institutions, TD Bank and Bank of America, which offer lines of credit to gun makers suggesting that they stop lending money to the manufacturers if they don’t come out for new gun restrictions. “TD Bank currently aids the gun manufacturing industry through a $60 million revolving line of credit with Smith & Wesson, a gun manufacturer that produces the AR-15 —

The noodles-for-brains Rahm man hasn´t figured out that a Gun Free Zone and a Free Fire Zone are one and the same.

I´ve been saying for quite a while now that Obama can use the banks to force people into complying with everything he wants.The government really has their hooks in BoA,who they could bankrupt at the drop of a hat with creative lawsuits claiming this and that on home mortgages.

These gun companies could probably operate on cash only if they had to but there´s lots of businesses that have lines of credit to make sure they can pay their bills or meet payroll.

People see evidence here and there that Obama and his henchmen are pure thugs but they don´t grasp the depth these people will go to,to get their way.

When Obama lost big in 2010,his first words is there´s more than one way to skin a cat. He was talking about climate change crap at the time and we´ve seen what the EPA is doing to ruin people´s lives. The thugocracy simply has too many avenues to abuse power.

This, and desiring to ban Chic-Fil-A from even doing business in Chicago, show that this man has the heart of a Nazi.

No, it can´t be illegal. Heck! This is the same, uh, weapon used by Senator Dodd and Rep.Frank to create the housing crash that helped Hussein become our king.

The maroon is unable to control the gun related killings in his own city despite the regulations. Now he wants to regulate the manufacturer and the banks that lend them the money? What a fool!

Banks would be stupid to voluntarily stop doing business with one of the most successful industries in the country. If it happens, that will be proof enough that there was strong and illegal government coercion. And if it does happen, every dollar that I have that is connected to BOA will be removed from their hands.

I agree on the mortgage gimmicks that started this economic disaster. If banks had not caved in to the government accusations of "red lining" to cheat minorities out of homes that they were entitled to, we would be sailing smoothly today, under a competent president.

What the liberal Democrats really want to do is destroy the US small arms and related industries that they consider to be conservative oriented enterprises. If they are successful in doing that, they will also destroy tens of thousands of well paying American jobs in those industries along with all the technical know how that goes along with those jobs.

To do that the liberal Democrats want to ban just about all modern semi-automatic handguns and rifles that are produced and sold in the USA today, knowing that those industries cannot survive by bidding on a diminishing number of military contracts.

The liberal Democrats who want to ban those firearms are almost completely silent as to the culpability of the dangerous mentally ill who perpetrate the mass shootings to gain media attention for themselves as they set out on their personal suicide missions.

The liberal Democrats are also silent about the culpability of the movie, TV, and video game industries that are trafficking in very violent entertainment content, from which they earn billions, that give young unstable mentally ill people who grow up in peaceful places such as rural Connecticut communities ideas of extreme violence that leads to cases of criminally insane conduct.

Remember the mentally ill can vote, so the liberal Democrats call them victims who they intend to help, and the mental health industry along with the movie, TV, and video game industries are all known to be big liberal Democrat supporters.

Cults In Our Midst: Patty Hearst

The Federalist, by Stella Morabito    Original Article

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

Not all of the Pulitzers were

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Joker sob story is just sickening

Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms. This one was perfectly timed — on the first anniversary of the Joker placing one of his kettle bombs in front of little Martin Richard, who had moments

Feds Begin Fingerprinting ´High Risk´
Medicare Providers and Suppliers
Weekly Standard, by Jeryl Bier    Original Article

Four years after Obamacare became law, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is notifying Medicare providers and suppliers of new fingerprint-based background checks. Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste. The new requirements are spelled

Obama Administration Wants UN to Come Up With
Fake Numbers to Back ‘Climate Change’ Legislation
PJ Media, by Bryan Preston    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/16/2014 4:33:40 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
