Watch CNN’s Don Lemon try to define ‘automatic weapon’ (Video)

1 Comment

This is from Liberty UnYielding.

To call Don Lemon a moron would be an upgrade.

Lemon and others like him is the reason that CNN has zero ratings.

 

A first rule of journalism is to know what you’re talking about. This goes double for broadcast journalists who have occasion to interface with guests. Apparently CNN’s Don Lemon was absent from J school the day they taught this important lesson.

In this exchange with conservative radio host Ben Ferguson Lemon demonstrates that his dislike of guns probably stems in part from his ignorance of them.

In the video, via The Blaze, Ferguson asserts:

The gun law says that you and I can’t just go out and buy an automatic weapon, so let’s deal with the facts here. A semi-automatic weapon is a gun that you and I are allowed to own, and in different places they have different rules. But to imply that anyone can walk out and buy an automatic weapon is just not true, Don.

It is at this point that Lemon takes his first step in deep doodoo, insisting that he was, in fact, able to purchase an “automatic weapon” following the 2012 movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colo. His next step is a doozy:

I have maybe shot a gun three, four times in my life — I don’t even live in Colorado. I think most people can go out and buy an automatic weapon. I don’t understand your argument there. It took me 20 minutes.

Sensing that the host is in over his head, Ferguson asks Lemon what his “definition of an automatic weapon is.”

“For me,” Lemon replies hesitantly, “an automatic weapon is anything that you can shoot off a number of rounds very quickly. I was able to buy an AR-15 in 20 minutes.”

Ferguson goes on to explain that an AR-15 is a semi-automatic — not automatic — rifle, noting that:

An automatic weapon is when you pull the trigger one time and it continually shoots off one after another, after another.

Lemon, who should backed out of the discussion long ago, accuses Ferguson of “getting into semantics.”

The video, which is pretty hilarious, follows:

Fort Hood Shooter Up Date

This is from CNN.

One shooter is dead it is not clear if the suspect dead by self-inflicted wounds or if First Responders got him.

Hopefully, if there was a second shooter that shooter is assuming room temperature.

ZoNATION: Black Holes Got Flight 370???

Leave a comment

This is from Alfonzo Rachel.

I say it was Klingon Bird Of  Prey using its cloaking device to steal Flight 370.

My explanation is more creative than CNN’s explanation.


The PC culture would rather blame Black Holes than Terrorists for the disappearance of Malaysian Flight 370.

Zo’s heard of digging deep for an explanation, but digging as deep as a black hole is Ridiculous! Hear more in this ZoNation.

Smack-down: CNN’s Jake Tapper finds out the hard way not to insult ‘Lone Survivor’ Marcus Luttrell

1 Comment

This is from BizPac Review.

Like all liberals Jake Tapper loathes the military.

It was great seeing Jake getting dressed down.

There was a video but You Tube took it down..

marcus_lutrell

CNN’s Jake Tapper found out the hard way that former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell is not someone you want to insult.

Luttrell is making the media rounds promoting the movie based on his book, “Lone Survivor,” his personal account of a mission gone horribly awry in the mountains of Afghanistan. He sat down Friday with Tapper and took offense to comments the CNN host made about the ordeal being “senseless.”

“One of the emotions I felt while watching was, first of all, the hopelessness of the situation, how horrific it was,” Tapper said in starting off the interview. “And I was torn about the message of the film in the same way that I think I am about the war in Afghanistan itself. I don’t want any more senseless American death.”

The only survivor of a four-man reconnaissance team that was ambushed by Taliban fighters, Luttrell responded like a man with fierce loyalty to his fallen comrades.

“I don’t know what part of the film you were watching, but hopelessness never really came into it,” Luttrell replied. “Where did you see that? We never felt like we were hopelessly lost or anything like that. We never gave up. We never felt like we were losing until we were actually dead.”

Tapper tried to explain, but he was clearly out of his league.

“It seemed senseless,” the CNN host responded. “I don’t mean to disrespect in any way, but it seemed senseless — all of these wonderful people who were killed for an op that went wrong.”

Irritated, Luttrell gave Tapper a little education on military combat.

“We spend our whole lives training to defending this country, and then we were sent over there by this country,” Luttrell said. “So you’re telling me because we were over there doing what we were told by our country, that it was senseless? And my guys, what? They died for nothing?”

Backtracking, Tapper said, “No.”

“That’s what you said,” Luttrell fired back. “So, let me just say, it went bad for us over there, but that was our job. That’s what we did. We didn’t complain about it.”

 

Manchin sees gun control passage still ‘difficult’ in 2014

Leave a comment

This is from The Politico.

The voters of West Viriginia need to fire this ass hat.

But are they too happily sucking on the handout teat of big 

government?

Look  at how long sheets Byrd was a Senator.

To the good people of West Virginia I am sorry if my above

 comment offends you.

I know your blameless you have not been on the big

government handout teat.

 

 

Sen. Joe Manchin says rounding up the votes to pass a bill creating background checks for gun purchases next year is going to be “difficult.”

While saying he’s “hopeful” that some would change their minds, the West Virginia Democrat acknowledged there are Democrats who opposed the bill creating background checks for gun purchases.

“Hopefully, they would maybe reconsider,” Manchin said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “It’s going to be difficult to get the extra votes that we need. I’m going to be honest with you.”

Manchin, a gun owner who had a top rating from the National Rifle Association, negotiated a background check bill with Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting in Connecticut. But the measure stalled in the Senate in April when it failed to get the needed 60 votes to advance.

Manchin said gun owners didn’t oppose background checks in theory but were concerned that government wouldn’t stop with checks.

“What we found out is that people couldn’t trust government that they would stop there,” he said.

Rep. Peter King: Rand Paul ‘Disgraced His Office’ With Clapper Attacks

Leave a comment

This is from NewsMax.

I have a correction for Peterless King RINO NY you are

the disgrace to your office not Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky).

Rand’s remarks about James Clapper.

James Clapper may have been a good general but as the

Director of National Intelligence.

After all he praised the Muslim Brother Hood as a

secular group instead of the murderous scum they are.

 

New York Rep. Peter King on Thursday ripped into Sen. Rand Paul for his attack on Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, charging that his fellow Republican “disgraced his office — and he owes General Clapper an apology immediately.”

“That is absolutely disgraceful to compare General Clapper with a traitor,” King, who confirmed to Newsmax in July that he was considering a bid for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, told Wolf Blitzer on CNN.

He was referring to Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency subcontractor who leaked information about the government’s vast electronic surveillance programs. Paul told Blitzer on Wednesday that Clapper posed a greater threat to the nation’s security than Snowden.

“For Senator Paul to compare that patriot, General Clapper, with someone like Snowden — who is a traitor, who has put American lives at risk — Senator Paul should be ashamed of himself,” King said. “It’s an absolute disgrace.”

Paul, who represents Kentucky, said in his interview that Clapper’s testimony to Congress in March — in which he said that the NSA “not wittingly” collected data on millions of Americans — amounted to “lying.”

Clapper later called the statement “clearly erroneous” and apologized to Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Paul told Blitzer on Wednesday that Clapper’s testimony was “probably more injurious to our intelligence capabilities than anything Snowden did.

“Clapper has damaged the credibility of the entire intelligence apparatus — and I’m not sure what to believe anymore when they come to Congress,” Paul said.

In his attack on Paul, King said that Clapper had been put “in an impossible position” in the committee’s public session, since the member who posed the question, Democratic Sen. Rob Wyden of Oregon, had obtained more specific information in a classified meeting.

“He knew that General Clapper could not give the full answer because it would let our enemies know what we were doing,” King told CNN. “The question was wrong. General Clapper gave the best answer he could.”

King, a former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, also said that he opposed a letter released on Wednesday by seven House Republicans calling for the Justice Department to begin a criminal investigation of whether Clapper had lied to Congress at the March hearing.

The letter, King said, came from “the isolationist wing of the party,” likening it to “radical left-wing Democrats of the 1960s.”

“These are people who are apologizing for America,” the senator said. “That is not the Republican tradition. That is not the tradition of Ronald Reagan. That is not a Republican position.”

King lodged into his rant against Paul as he attacked a report released on Wednesday by a presidential advisory committee that recommended the NSA be limited in how it seizes Americans’ telephone and Internet records without court approval.

“This commission is caving in to political correctness,” King told Blitzer. “The fact is no Americans have had their rights violated. No American citizens’ calls are being listened to unless they’re in contact with terrorists. No one’s name is on file, no one’s address is on file. This is a totally phony issue.”

The interview began with King endorsing the bipartisan legislation introduced by 26 senators that would tighten sanctions on Iran if it violates the nuclear deal reached with world powers last month or lets the accord expire without a long term agreement.

The senators, 13 Republicans and Democrats each, defied President Barack Obama in putting forth the sanctions bill and drew a veto threat.

“If Iran is serious about the agreement, they should have no problems with the sanctions,” King said. “The sanctions only kick in if they don’t comply with the agreement.

“The president should want these sanctions as a weapon to hold over the Iranians,” he added. “The president is making a very serious mistake in threatening to veto this bill.”

Actor Richard Dreyfuss shocks Piers Morgan: NRA are heroes, not villians

Leave a comment

This is from BizPac Review.

This just sent Piers Morgan into a fit apoplexy.

It is a sure bet Richard Dreyfuss will not be invited

back to Comrade Morgans show. 

Liberal Hollywood actor Richard Dreyfuss came to a fork in the political road last week and turned right instead of left when he referred to the National Rifle Association as “heroes.”

During his appearance on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” Dreyfuss said that instead of thinking of the NRA as an enemy, Americans should acknowledge that it’s the gun expert and tap that expertise for solutions to gun violence.

“I don’t think the NRA is a villain,” Dreyfuss said, according to Townhall. “I think we should turn this over to the people who are expert at this, and the original mandate of the NRA was to train responsible gun ownership, and the NRA should handle it. They should train excellence in gun ownership.”

Morgan, a longtime, vocal proponent of strict gun control, was flabbergasted. He initiated the discussion by lamenting about “the power of the NRA over the gun debate, and the apparent intransigence of Washington to do anything about that.”

If he thought he was going to find a kindred spirit in Dreyfuss, he was mistaken.

The actor said it all came down to training. Just as we wouldn’t think of allowing someone behind the wheel of a car without driving lessons, he said, the same is true when it comes to handling a firearm. And no one is more suited for the job of providing that training than the NRA.

“The NRA should be thought of as heroes,” he said.

“A large stretch for some of us to look at people like [NRA CEO] Wayne LaPierre as heroes,” Morgan said. It was able all he could get out.

CNN: If You’re Christian, It’s Your Fault That People Don’t Have Health Insurance

2 Comments

This is from Joe For America.

For centuries Christians  through their churches

Provided for the poor.

Then in 1965 Landslide Lyndon Johnson declared war

on poverty and the government hand outs began.

Poverty has won the war, Johnson declared.

As tens of millions stand to lose their health insurance benefits over the coming months, mainstream establishment mouthpiece CNN has been investigating why there are so many poor and under-insured Americans.

Follow Joe For America on Facebook!

In an investigative report titled The Obamacare ‘scandal’ you haven’t heard about CNN journalist John Blake thinks he’s figured it out.

It’s not that the government has created an air of learned helplessness, or shipped jobs to foreign countries through restrictive legislation and taxes, or that Americans have seen their purchasing power decrease exponentially making it impossible for them to meet their basic needs.

And the Patient Affordable Care Act certainly can’t be to blame, even though the health exchanges don’t work, and people are being rapidly removed from their current insurance policies because of regulations set forth by the new law, or that those who do manage to sign up will see a tripling of their rates which will further impoverish them.

No, the problem, according to CNN, is the Christians; specifically, the Christian pastors and their churches in southern states who have apparently done nothing to address poverty or failed to push their governments to expand social health care services through forced wealth redistribution.

In an article on CNN.com’s Belief Blog, CNN writer John Blake says that, while famous pastors “preach in states where crosses and church steeples dot the skyline,” they do nothing about “the poor who can’t get the health insurance they would receive if they lived elsewhere.”

That refers, in turn, to the decision of twenty-five states not to participate in Obamacare’s expanded Medicaid funding. The states were allowed to opt out following last year’s controversial Supreme Court decision on Obamacare, which upheld the law as a whole but struck down the mandatory state participation in Medicaid expansion, citing the protection provided to state powers under the Tenth Amendment.

Blake covers different perspectives on the question of speaking out. But the premise of CNN’s article is that churches are to blame for Obamacare’s failures–not the federal government, not the Democrats who passed it, and not President Barack Obama himself. The thinly-veiled implication–a repeated theme in leftist critiques–is that Christians are hypocrites who care about personal salvation, but not about good works.

Source Breitbart via Steve Quayle

If CNN and John Blake would have done their research, what they would have found is that if there’s anyone in this country providing community outreach to the poor, handicapped and uninsured, it’s faith-based networks, most of which are Christian.

In 2001 there were approximately 26,000 food pantries in America. Of those, fully 75% were operated by faith-based organizations. They were staffed not by government employees bilking the system for millions of dollars in reckless spending and outrageous benefit and pension plans, but by Christian volunteers. In fact, 9 out of 10 people working in faith-based food pantries in America are volunteers doing so out of their own free will, good nature, and need to give back to those who are less fortunate.

Moreover, with respect to health care itself, faith-based hospitals in America have been found to provide higher quality health care than their counterparts. These hospitals and the Christian organizations that support them raise hundreds of millions of dollars a year in an effort to assist the poorest of our society with their medical needs – again primarily through individual donations, not wealth confiscation.

Thus, while Mr. Blake et. al. make the argument that Christians don’t care about the poor, the facts prove otherwise. It’s the very people he criticizes in his ‘investigative report’ on this ‘scandal’ that are spending their personal time and money to help those in need.

And the kicker? No one had to write a law and force these people to do it by the barrel of a gun. They do it because they care, not because they were mandated to do so. Moreover, they don’t forcibly take the funds needed to operate these outreach programs from others. They get them in the form of private donations, from hundreds of thousands of other Christians across America who want to make a difference any way they can.

So, Mr. Blake, before you bloviate about how followers of the teachings of Jesus are to blame for the world’s problems, go take a look in the mirror.

If you’re going to cast stones, you may want to start there.

GABBY GIFFORDS, MARK KELLY LAUNCH VETERANS GROUP FOR GUN CONTROL

Leave a comment

This is fro the Breitbarts Big Government.

The lefts poster children of fraud are trying to get

Fifteen more minutes of fame.

A universal background check is defacto firearms registration. 

I am sorry that Gabby got shot but her efforts are

Dangerous and fraudulent.

 

The gun control PAC of Gabby Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, is launching a new initiative, “Veterans for Responsible Solutions.”

According to CNN, the new initiative “will support Giffords and Kelly’s wider efforts by bringing to bear the experience of military veterans who’ve sworn to defend the Second Amendment.”

Kelly, a veteran himself, said he shares the views of the veterans in the new initiative. He also spoke of all the guns he and his wife keep in their home for self-defense and target shooting.

Along with Kelly, Veterans for Responsible Solutions say they are not seeking “to repeal or limit the Second Amendment.” They just want “universal background checks.”

Neither Giffords, Kelly, nor Veterans for Responsible Solutions addressed the fact that universal background checks will require gun registration in order to be effective. Nor did they address Breitbart News’ reports that universal background checks would not have stopped the heinous crimes of the Sandy Hook Elementary, D.C. Navy Yard, or LAX shootings.

CNN did report that the couple’s push for universal background checks has proven “politically unpalatable.”
