Top Ten Problems with that
Skeet Shooting Picture

American Thinker, by Marion DS Dreyfus

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 2/6/2013 5:09:06 AM

It was a picture dredged up to prove the assertion the President had made in January to the breezy effect that the President is indeed acquainted with firearms, since, as he stated (roughly paraphrased), We´ve often shot skeet when we´re at Camp David. It took a few days, where conservative media baited the press secretary Jay Carney, for proof, any proof, and where the Democrats either pooh-poohed the need for proof, since the President rarely turns out to have accuracy as his first arrow out of the quiver

Item #9 suggests that it might not even be obama in the pic, instead it´s possibly a body-double. Really? You mean there could be someone out there who would KNOWINGLY wear momjeans to lay his life on the line for the One?

I don´t know. The picture is probably real. He is probably not shooting skeet but rather shooting clay pigeons from a portable trap. At least he shot the gun at least one time.
Obviously he has no skill at shooting a shotgun. He is holding it like he never had one before.

Many of the many comments made about it just don´t hold water. And yes, I have shot both skeet and trap many times.

Give it a rest. So many of the so-called problems aren´t problems at all. Is it not enough that they´ve only been able to produce ONE photograph after a week of frantic searching?

The guy is not a shooter. He said something dumb. We already know that he is not trustworthy. Let´s move on...

The shotgun in the picture is a Browning Citori, over and under twelve guage. I know because it is the same gun I use at the range for skeet and also in the field for bird hunting. I can tell you that the way he has shouldered the gun in the picture, if he fired it any more than about twenty times with it mounted that way, he would have a sore bruised shoulder, especially since he is not wearing a padded shooting vest and the stock has not been customized to fit him.

Agree with #7. Photog snapped that picture at the millisecond when the smoke appeared as the rifle was fired. Amazing timing or there are many more pictures that were not released because they included Obama being helped off the skeet range holding a painfully bruised shoulder and cheek.
And Obama´s agonizing second act only has 47 more months to go. (groan)

One explanation for the delay between event and picture posting might be revealed in the poor quality audio from the wireless bug in the Valkyrie´s office.

It seems to indicate that they were waiting for a reply, which never came BTW, from Martha Stewart asking for her best recipe on the preparation of skeet. (JIC he actually got lucky and bagged one rather then having to purchase from the exotic game market) /ticsarc

I´ll bet he posed with the shotgun and the smoke was photoshopped later.

Why no video? Why are there not 50-60 different pictures?

SUNGLASSES? Was someone dumb enough to put the targets in the direction of the sun?

Fraud, fakery, just like everything else about this man.

If the picture was snapped at the moment of smoke ejecting from the barrel, his shoulder would already be in recoil from the blast. He is either the strongest man who ever lived, is capable of defying the laws of Physics, or the smoke was Photoshopped in after he was snapped merely holding the shotgun up against his cheek.

Anyone who has shot a 12 gauge knows the kick would push the shoulder back and possibly bruise the shoulder if held wrong. This picture shows he is totally unaware of the pain he is about to endure.

My guess is this was posed and the gun smoke was photoshopped. No way this is an actual shot. He would be on his arse.

Then when Tyranicalsaurus Rex and his Evil Maniacal spouse are done with the useful idiots they will be cast aside. Who will help?

The country is going to hell in a hand basket and we´re surmising that the Pretender might have staged this stupid picture.

This, my friends, is another smokescreen for the "low information" people of the correct viewpoint to stagger upon.

Our country is about to become czarist Russia, people! Obamacare is the law of the land! That´s more important than whether this photo was shopped for.

Let´s be more interested in Bengahzi, which is about to be swept; the administration coming after our 401ks; and/or an administration that bypasses congress by executive order and a congress who says, "ok" by way of passivity. Our taxes are about to skyrocket, the military is about to be axed, and the people being appointed to positions of power are anti-american.

This picture is a "red" herring.

To start with I´m not a skeet or trap shooter although I have shot skeet. Why the muzzle brake on only the upper barrel of the shotgun? Does seem like a bit much smoke. As for shooting level, that would indicate, to me, that he was following the bird down to the ground and did not shoot it when most others would already have fired. I don´t know how much recoil would show if he were firing a light target load, even from a 12 ga. Overall, especially knowing the subject, I´d vote for fake. I´d also like to know his score if he ever did shoot skeet - 0 just like his name? Maybe he thinks it´s golf and low score is good.

I downloaded the original picture from the White House Flickr account, and here is selected EXIF information from it:

Image: 4096 pixels wide by 2730 high

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Resolution: 240 pixels per inch

File date and time: 2013:2:1 17:11:38

Date and time of original data generation: 2012:8:4 19:19:21 (that is, photo was taken at 7:19 PM on August 4, 2012)

Shutter speed: 1/320 second at F4

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS6 (Macintosh)

In other words, the photo was at least uploaded into Photoshop in preparation for release. Was Photoshop used to alter it, also?

August 4 is Obama´s birthday. He spent his birthday playing golf and shooting skeet? Where were Michelle and the kids?

More info about this photo: If you view the original on your computer, where it can be enlarged to full size, you will see that the picture was snapped just at the moment of discharge, and the shotgun is blurred, meaning it is recoiling, but the recoil has not yet been transmitted to 0´s body (except for the right forearm). I am suspicious of that smoke, though.

Modern professional SLR´s can be set to shoot multiple frames/sec. And then it´s a matter of choice which frame is published.

The EXIF data published above does not show the camera set for high-speed shooting.

Looks like the photog was very lucky or Photoshop wins again.

#24: Jackpot! Besides the poor shooting position and a bruise on the shoulder, the thing that annoys me the most is the smoke.

I am a paper puncher not a skeet shooter so I can not say for sure on shotgun shells. However, nothing I shoot makes smoke.

I believe he posed for the picture and never fired the shotgun. Smoke was added so most would think he actually fired.

Perhaps the White House looked up the date when Obama was at Camp David, then photoshopped the photo and dated it for that date. They have been known to fake stuff (the birth certificate).

Hard to believe he spent his birthday shooting skeet.

I don´t care if it is real or fake, but take a look at that shotgun...is the government providing these for the play time shooting? If so, I would guess this to be about a $4-5000.00 piece of hardware. Looks like the real spendy stuff the real rich guys I see at the range using. Who says we don´t have any money. Ha.

Why the two trails of smoke going in different directions starting from different points? I´m a but new to the shooting sports only about 48 years. In the spirit of full disclosure darned little of my experience has been shotgun shooting, mostly rifle and pistol. I´d have that barrel checked for a leak about 4in shy of the business end. He posed with a shotgun, may have shot it, may have shot it well, but this wasn´t a photo of that happening.

He appears to be aiming with one eye. That is not the way you hold on a target with a shotgun. Both eyes remain open and focused on the target.

The Poverty Hoax
American Thinker, by John Dietrich    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 4/8/2014 7:54:23 AM     Post Reply
A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

By the time Obama had finished his first term, it was in a state of endless war. [snip] Bush had sought to stabilize the Middle East by removing Saddam.

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings. In one instance her team, which had certainly been invited in by Democrats

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Kudos to Don Lemon, the CNN journalist, for admitting what conservatives have maintained ever since Barack Obama became president with unquestioning media support and suppression of any conservatism as racist: (This is the totality of the text, video is enclosed.)

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
