Media Follows Obama´s Orders
to Mock Skeet-Gate Skeptics

Brietbart Big Journalism, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 2/3/2013 7:40:38 AM

Some of you younger folks might not remember this, but there was a time when the media questioned Power. No, really, once upon a time, the media saw it as its duty to be forever questioning and skeptical of Power, especially when Power was in pursuit of more power. For example, Obama is attempting to grab more power for The State and criminals by way of gun control laws that infringe on our Second Amendment civil rights.

You know they had to stage this photo (if it´s even real) when they started their anti-2nd Amendment push.

And if they think Alinsky Rules to ridicule work for them on us, then it can work for us right back at´em.

Are we skeptics? No...... just conditioned to know that nothing from these people is believable, except their dishonesty.

Obama said he "did skeet shooting" so the WH had to scramble. I don´t think the photo could possibly be photoshopped, and if it is Obama behind the gun he is probably taking target practice. You don´t shoot at skeet straight on like that. But he said he shot skeet so the WH had to lie, as always, to cover for him.

Anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of shotguns knows this is a staged shot.

The way our Doofus is holding the shotgun and the way he is aiming and the way it sits against his shoulder is all wrong.

I do not expect our media buffoons to understand this. Their lack of knowledge of anything gun related is well-known.

Yes, the media used to question Power. However, they now think their job is to be the voice of the little guy--- the people whom they claim have no voice otherwise. So we are fed social justice stories 24/7 ad nauseum and in this way the news is totally distorted. The minority viewpoint or struggle is transformed into the majority opinion because that´s all the viewers see, day after day.
Whether or not this is intentional is a separate topic. Besides, it´s nearly impossible to prove intent.

I remember the slogan "Never trust anyone over 30" !!
In the 60s college students had the brains to distrust everyone, especially the gov´t...just ask Bill Ayers s/
Today´s college students have been indoctrinated to be non questioning robots of the state. Too lazy to seek out the truth for themselves.

Just in case some lowinfos are reading this, we need to always post this truth:

The only reason to take guns away from a population is to allow the government to take over without contest. The only reason. It is not about "violence" or "the children". It is to take over the country. Does anyone read history, does anyone understand the past?

Anything else said is just BS. It is about the power to overcome.

Where can I get a recoilless shotgun like Obambi is using. THe shirt is neatly tucked in without a bit of wrinkle from a sudden forceful movement (like the recoil of the weapon). Shirt sleeves gently hanging tot he arms as he fires away. No movement of the head, shoulder, torso, nothing. Perfectly recoilless. Great gun!

With all the technology the government has access to, one would think they would be able to produce better stuff than this. It is in human nature to mock what is really dumb, stupid, bad, etc. Hence, our attitude towards the media and libs in general.

Scary thing is, I can see where the WH pulls a Canada on us and makes a law that would regulate mocking him as a hate crime.

See Mark Steyn as an example.

We don´t need to accuse the WH of photo-shopping this image to ridicule it, the Prez made that possible all on his own.

And forget where he´s aiming, he ain´t even HOLDING the thing right. The butt is braced against his shoulder joint, not in the "pocket" between the joint and the clavicle. Just look at the pic.

Recall the first fake BC they released wasn´t even the same format as a real Hawaii BC from that time. And the later document they showed still had photoshop-editing layers that weren´t ever ´flattened´ to conceal the fact it had been modified. This photo includes features that give it away as a fake, too.

It almost seems like they´re intentionally leaving evidence of fakery obvious, perhaps to elicit accusations of fakery to facilitate the Alinsky-inspired isolate-and-marginalize strategy to destroy political opponents.

If that wasn´t their strategy to begin with, that seems to be the script that´s playing out.

My two cents:

Look at the funny thing in the end of the barrel, look at the smoke pattern. Would it be any different if someone shoved a roman candle in the barrel and set it off? Doesn´t that smoke look like black powder? (No offense intended) That puff of smoke at the top looks like it is slowly wafting away not like it was blasted out of a port.

O.K., I waited a day to see if someone would say it. Done my duty, going dark.

That looks more like a gas operated rifle that any shotgun I´ve ever seen. Point. I´ve never seen a shot gun with what looks like two barrels. The bottom one IS used on many gas operated rifles. Also, to shoot a round of skeet requires a shotgun capable of firing two rounds, one right after the other. Thats done during the high house, low house segment when a birdie is launched simultianous from both houses and the shooter must locate them and break them with a single shot each. And I´ve spent my life handling many types of guns. Done a lot of hunting when I was younger too.

I believe the photo´s a fraud. But to play devil´s advocate, what would #26 say a classic "double barrel shotgun" is, if it doesn´t have two barrels? (In fairness, though, the two are usually SIDE-BY-SIDE, not in a stacked configuration like that.)

Headline: President Obama has accidentally shot and killed his teleprompter, it has been revealed.

The President was attempting to skeet shoot, and the teleprompter was displaying the word "Pull!"

SpokesKid Jay Carney stated that the TOTUS died instantly and felt no pain, and the President is in mourning and will not speak a word to anyone until a new teleprompter is sworn in.

Considering how high the buttstock is agaist Obama´s shoulder, it´s likely the first time he ever fired a shotgun. Likely the last time, too.

That is,if he fired it at all. The angle *is* wrong for skeet or trap, that´s a hell of a lot of smoke for any modern shotgun shell, and I personally have never seen a shotgun with only one side ported (and usually shotgun porting is with a dozen or so small holes, not one big slot).

But hey, *we´re* the nutcases for having some idea what we´re talking about.

Unleashing a barrage of expletives that would be unusual even in an off-the-record conversation, the chief spokeswoman for Anthony D. Weiner’s embattled campaign for mayor attacked a former campaign intern in an interview published on Tuesday night.

Ms. Nuzzi claimed that Mr. Weiner repeatedly called interns by the wrong name, underpaid a staff

THERE is something missing from the endless moralizing and sophomoric jokes aimed at Anthony D. Weiner. That something is the role of women in a coarse and creepy Internet culture dedicated to the fulfillment of both male and female desires for virtual carnal knowledge. People ask how Mr. Weiner’s wife, the soulfully beautiful and professionally accomplished Huma Abedin, can stay with him. My question is why hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of women apparently derive gratification from exchanging sexual talk and pictures with strangers.

Had the judge found Manning guilty of aiding the enemy, she would have set a terrible precedent. For the first time, an American court – albeit a military court – would have said it was a potentially capital crime simply to give information to a news organization, because in the internet era

Weiner’s political career will never end, if only because of how much value he has to offer to the media, standup comedians and bored browsers looking for some news item to wake them up long enough to finish another hour of data entry at their job. Shame has become a mostly discredited concept. The return of Weiner and Spitzer to public life proves as much. But the Era of Shame ended conclusively with Clinton’s impeachment proceedings. The only outcome of those proceedings was to degrade the country while leaving the man at the center of the mess intact.

In a new sign of tumult within Anthony D. Weiner’s embattled political operation, his campaign manager has quit, leaving his already skeletal team without a day-to-day leader.

The two people, who have close ties to the campaign, did not want to be identified because they were disclosing confidential conversations.

If you have never suffered from lingering low back pain, you’re lucky or, more likely, young. Up to 80 percent of us will experience low back pain at some point. And for most, there won’t be an identifiable cause. In the past 10 years, the most popular nonsurgical medical treatment for “chronic, nonspecific” low back pain has been injection therapy, or shots into the lower back of various substances — usually cortisone but also liquid ibuprofen, morphine and vitamin B12.

But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine.

The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.

If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

[Video] Ouch. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie turned down an offer by Sen. Rand Paul to join him for a beer and bury the hatchet in their ongoing -- and very public -- feud. "I´m running for re-election in New Jersey. I don´t really have time for that at the moment," Christie said in an interview on a local radio station. The New Jersey governor said if he finds himself in Washington, "I´ll certainly look him up." But he added: "I don´t suspect I´ll be there anytime soon. I´ve got work to do here."

About 400 area retail and fast-food workers, together with colleagues nationally, participated in a strike Thursday to demand raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. “If not $15, then something. I mean give us something. I work 36 hours a week and barely make enough to pay my rent, gas bill, light bill. It gets to the point where I barely have enough for lunch sometimes,” said Angel Richardson, 21, who works at McDonald’s. “I’m five months pregnant, what am I going to do in four months? I hope something changes.” The minimum wage is $7.25 nationally and $8.25

Oprah Winfrey said Americans by and large know “diddly-squat” about the history of the civil rights movement. The talk show queen and media mogul made her comments during the promotion of her new film, “The Butler,” about a black man who serves in that capacity through seven administrations at the White House. “They don’t know diddly-squat,” she said in a recent interview with Parade magazine. “Diddly-squat.” Ms. Winfrey also said that when she hears the N-word, she thinks of the “millions of people who heard that as their last word as they were hanging from a tree.”

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape
