HOLDER DENIES BIAS
In response to hints that in the officer-involved shooting case he might be biased against the police officer, Atty General Eric Holder pointed out he is sworn to uphold the law of the land.
“Our system includes a presumption of innocence… And that protection covers everyone, even this racist sunuvabitch.”
Holder added… “In keeping with that ideal, we intend to make sure the officer receives a fair and unbiased trial… Followed by a first class hanging.”

Some have suggested St Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch recuse himself due to his close ties to police.
No word if a similar demand will be made to Holder in light of his close ties to criminals.
Glock Introducing Their First Single-stack 9mm
This move by Glock apparently comes in response to demand from shooters who long to combine the limited ammo capacity of the .45acp with the reduced effectiveness of the 9mm cartridge.
Yeah, I know, it’s hard to believe Glock doesn’t hire me to write product intros.
Posted on Twitter yesterday by the White House Press Sec Josh Earnest:
Joint statement from me & many of my fellow PressSec’s notes that Jim Brady “set the model and the standard for the rest of us to follow”.

Can’t speak for everyone Josh… but if Hinkley is on board, far be it from me to object.
Here’s an interesting example of the left pretending numbers support their argument:
Best bullshit quote from the blog:
As a prologue to the kids, [HI KIDS!] I’d like point out that — no matter what mommy and daddy say – over 10,000 kids are shot each year in the United States and having a gun in the home makes you less, not more safe. Make sure you go ask your gun-toting mommy or daddy why they hate you and why they had you in the first place … besides ‘the condom broke.’
YES! We must take your guns. For the children! Darn those “gun nuts”!
A guy could get wealthy selling straw if he could get the concession to supply the left with material for their arguments.
Notice the pic shows about a 3 yr old white child holding a gun, and posits that “gun nuts” kids are lucky to live past 10.
But if you follow the trail of citation, the blog quotes a blog that quotes a blog quoting a study that states…
— 84% of the “children” were 15-19
— 9 out of 10 “victims” were male
— By a ratio of 10:1 the victims were black
So… the “children” in the study are by a massive disparity older teenage black males? Now let’s be honest here, does that sound like “Little Timmy found daddy’s gun” to you... or does it sound like inner city gang violence?
Sorry folks, but in the process of getting a degree in Finance I had to take more than a few courses in Statistics, and it appears your arguments are gloriously unhampered by an understanding of how stats work. As I don’t have time to tutor you, I’ll just point out the glaringly obvious flaw in your “reasoning” such as it is:
NEWSFLASH: Taking my gun won’t do a damned thing to fix gang violence in south Chicago, Philadelphia, LA, or DC’s Anacostia ghetto.
So next time… BEFORE you report raw numbers just so you can misrepresent them to take a big whack at your favorite strawman, take a little closer look at what the numbers actually say, not what you wish they said.
Any jackass can write sloppy arguments that are not really supported by the numbers they pretend support them. As shown by the example cited… they usually do.
Among the many meaningless promises…
made in the process of an election that catapulted a junior senator with a propensity for making hard decisions by voting “present” to the top office in our nation… One stands out as particularly laughable.
That would be the promise to restore our global image around the world.
When he was running for office, papers in the US and around the world tittered about how he gave them goosebumps, and glowingly compared the effect he had on crowds to John Kennedy.
The guy talked one helluva game. He’d have the nation on wifi. We’d enter a new era of government transparency. DC lobbyists would all starve and die as they were shut out of the White House. The world would love us and respect us. The level of the seas would respond to his presence.
Enter stage left: REALITY
We are laughed at by Russia…
as Vlad Putin fans the dead embers of the cold war into a toasty flame while grabbing real estate in Ukraine and thumbing his nose at the boy who prefers golf and fundraisers to leadership.
The president went on TV in response and blusters about what he “will not allow”, but in the same speech took military action off the table. [Yeah, that'll scare the heck out of 'em.]
Obama threatens Russia with economic sanctions, but Europe shops at Vlad’s gas station. The strongest economic power in Europe is Germany, and Angela Merkel doesn’t trust Obama as far as she can throw him since it was revealed we were spying on her phone conversations. Don’t hold your breath waiting for Europe to back our play.
Our southern border …
is under a full frontal assault because our president used his pen and his phone to ignore existing law, setting off a dog-whistle of amnesty heard all over the American continent.
we provided material assistance to rebels to fight their dictator despite their ties to Al Qaida. Syrian rebels have now branched into Iraq and are committing atrocities.
the Syrian rebels are led by a man that was in US custody when Obama took office. He is steadily taking over the country… also in US custody when Obama took office. We left without a status of forces agreement that gave us a presence beyond an embassy.
a country that is our strongest ally in the region, we have provided material aid to their enemy, Hamas. Even though Hamas was designated a terrorist group by the Clinton State Dept as early as the 90s.
Our repeated insistence on a ceasefire in Gaza resulted in multiple 1-sided ceasefires, where rockets from Gaza continued to fly into Israel. As a result their president, who was proven correct in the process, openly told ours to never second guess him on the subject again. Israeli journalists openly refer to Our Sec of State as “nebbish”. Basically that’s Yiddish for “big pussy”.
we watched our Ambassador and several others die as we did absolutely nothing. Several general officers in our military were removed from office for unrelated reasons immediately afterward. Not because they defied orders to avoid interfering. Right?
…has been reduced to statuses comparable to our standing pre-WW2. In addition to a purge of general staff, thousands of experienced field officers (Captains and Majors) are in the process of being booted.
This of course is due to “budget cuts” and is in no way associated with anyone failing the litmus test of whether they would agree to fire on their own countrymen if ordered. Meanwhile our ability to fund more and more welfare programs is apparently limitless.
Obama says we are NOT facing a new cold war
That is bull. He says it only because saying otherwise simply points out that in an debate with Romney… Public opinion and the press may have favored Obama, but history favors Romney.
So much for “reset”. Our world standing has gone from being feared to being a joke. Not only do our enemies not fear us, our allies don’t trust us.
And they are both right.
If a football team has a known weak player in a defensive position, the offense will take advantage of it by repeatedly choosing plays that press hard on his zone. That tendency is not limited to the field of sports.
We are going to see a repeat of the behavior that led to the Cuban missile crisis. Before Obama leaves office, Putin will test us by wiping his muddy feet on the Monroe Doctrine and establishing bases in the Western Hemisphere.
Hide and watch.
Oh… And “happy Sunday morning” to you.
The US Dept of Health and Human Services spent the last 4 years (and nearly a billion bucks) trying to build one functional website, unsuccessfully.
So naturally we should have nothing but confidence in the knowledge they’re now about to fly in folks who carry a virus that has killed more people than Cecil B DeMille. [LINK]
Yeah… What could possibly go wrong?
-1- Jesse Ventura defeats decorated sniper’s widow in court and declares “My reputation is restored now”. However in hindsight he finds it may have been optimistic to expect headline: “Ventura Proves Manliness by Beating Up Girl”.
-2- Federal court rules DOJ must disclose “Fast & Furious” docs previously hidden via executive privilege. Insiders expect ruling may have caused as many as 14 hard drive crashes.
-3- Multiple US citizens stricken with the Ebola are being flown from Liberia to the US for treatment. This replaces our former policy of only allowing deadly infectious diseases to freely enter the country via the south Texas border.
-4- President Obama resorts to disparaging speeches and tweets to contend he’s “doing the right thing” by ignoring Congress as well as 2 centuries of established law and the US Constitution. So y’all jus quit hatin all the time.
-5- A book on lives of politicians thru eyes of those on Secret Service details revealed VP Biden loves to swim in the nude. Initial reactions to that mental image suggest this could do more to combat obesity than low-cal bacon.
The sad part is I am not making this stuff up.
