Billionaire Battle? Bloomberg Mulls White House Run

“Reeko,”  longtime reader and friend of the ND blog, has graciously offered to write some posts here for the duration of the 2016 campaign.

He’s a fellow conservative who works in a secret capacity for the United States government (hence the pseudonym) and can give an insider’s perspective on some of the issues.

His interests include politics, military, foreign affairs, science, theology, history, anthropology, weapons and martial arts, birds, airplanes, and Texas trivia, among many other things.

“Forsazh” is Russian for “afterburner” – as in jet engines. ;)

Unlike me, Reeko supports Donald Trump (!) and in good time will probably get around to explaining why.

To start off, he wanted to talk about former NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s potential entrance into the race. (7-Eleven hardest hit.)

Alternative title, “Send in the Clown”:

Well, that didn’t take long. Bloomberg. Yes, the old Blooming Idiot himself.

So, I guess that question has been answered. (Who will replace Hillary on the Dem ticket?) Crazily, but answered just the same, much like getting a reading from a windsock in a hurricane.

Somebody on the Left must’ve run the electoral numbers and panicked. Cynicism much perhaps? Or does it not look like they are trotting out M. J. Bloomberg to at least try to keep NY from going all Trump Blue in the general election?

Yes, NY will vote solidly for Trump, making that a Red State for the first time since 1984. Of course Bloomberg is most likely to stay officially an “Independent” just like B. Sanders is an “Independent” yet neither of those capitol “I”s are gonna be able to save the DNC from the coming disaster in November:

NY = 29 electoral votes; FL = 29; TX = 38; The solid South = 111 (minus SC, still 102 because that State is goofy) and, the biggest electoral prize of all, yes, even California is in play for Trump. It will be a landslide no matter which way the math works out. The Left is grabbing at NY with everything they have, or else the Dem Party will be demolished.

The Oligarchical Rulers of our country are absolutely besides themselves with fear. “Obama’s legacy” …this is it: The end of the Democrat Party as we know it. With powerful assists from Soros and both Clintons. At long last!

Can I get an amen? At least a few high fives? :D

This Pub Owner’s Next Sign Will Say, “Out Of Business”

In the wake of the Newtown school shooting in December 2012, gun control advocates were successful in pushing through restrictions on the Second Amendment in eight states.

Gun-rights activists in South Carolina saw  the pendulum swing back in their direction,  last month when  Gov. Nikki Haley signed a bill, passed the General Assembly that allowed for concealed carry in bars and restaurants.

Governor Haley spoke at length during today’s signing ceremony about the importance of removing the restriction on CWP holders carrying for personal protection in restaurants where alcohol is served.  She also clarified much of the misinformation anti-gun extremists and the media had been claiming regarding this critical personal protection reform.

Via Twitchy, one pub owner, apparently still bitter about the pro-gun legislation, posted this on his establishment’s door:

Leftists aren’t known for having business acumen, but it’s hard to believe someone could be so unhinged about a political issue that they would antagonize a large portion of his potential customers with such an offensive sign.

CNN: Another Fast and Furious Gun Shows Up at Murder Scene in Mexico (Video)

One of the more disgraceful legacies of Eric Holder’s tenure as Obama’s Attorney General, is the increased bloodshed we will be dealing with in the years to come on both sides of the Southern border because of his  criminally stupid false flag Operation Fast and Furious..

Mediaite reported:

A CNN report broadcast on Tuesday revealed that guns released to Mexican gangs as part of the Fast and Furious “gun-walking” operation are continuing to show up at scenes of violence sound of the American border. According to the CNN report, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives acknowledged that more weapons released into Mexico are likely to continue surfacing in the coming years.

 

During an interview in October of 2011, an inscensed Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu blasted Atty General Holder for engaging in what he called a cover-up and outright conspiracy which has “risen to the level of criminal.” He claimed that his deputies and American citizens in general will be facing the barrels of the Fast and Furious guns well into the future. “We couldn’t make this stuff up in our wildest nightmares,” he said.

“2000 semi automatic, fully automatic AK 47s, 50 caliber rifles, my deputies don’t even have this firepower in AZ and we’ve given it to these people we’re fighting, and now the Atty General of Mexico has been attacking the US publicly, demanding accountability, demanding criminal charges against the government. And President Obama who’s gone on this worldwide tour to apologize for America (which I’ve always disagreed with, and been embarrassed by) – the one apology he should be making is to Mexico. 200+ people according to their attorney general have been murdered – have been killed by these very weapons that Holder and his group of accomplices have handed to them. And now, Brian Terry a hero in our border patrol, who served as a police officer, who served in the US Marine Corps, was murdered on American soil, in my state, and you’re about to hear the Sheriffs out here unleash upon Eric Holder. We asked for help to fight against the cartels, to fight illegal immigration, secure the border, and what we got back was a lawsuit, to sue our state, to fight us for  enforcing the law – the very job that we’re sworn to do – put up billboard signs in my county warning American citizens that it’s not safe to travel because of drug cartels, and now they’ve armed the very enemy we’re fighting…This for us is more than personal — our deputies, our citizens are going to be facing in the future the barrels of guns that our own government has given to criminals. We couldn’t make this stuff up in our wildest nightmares.”

He went on, “this clearly was a plot by our government (I’ve never been one to buy into conspiracies – but this is as clear as day to me) It’s as clear as day to me this was an effort by Barack Obama, Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano to make an aggressive assault against 2nd Amendment rights to bear arms…”

Total Recall! Colorado State Senators Morse and Giron Voted Out

Colorado Senate President John Morse of Colorado Springs  Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo conceded their seats Tuesday night in the state’s first ever recall election.
He and  Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo faced recall elections because of their support for the stricter gun laws passed last spring.

Via The Denver Post, here are the results:

Ballot Issue State Senate 3 – Recall Giron

100% reporting
Yes 56.0% (19,355)
No 43.9% (15,201)

Ballot Issue State Senate 11 – Recall Morse

100% reporting
Yes 50.9% (9,094)
No 49.0% (8,751)

The Democrat anti-recall camp outspent the recallers by at least  8 to 1 analysts estimated.

Via The Washington Times:

 Two billionaires — New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Eli Broad of Los Angeles — gave a combined $600,000 to fight the recalls, while labor unions, Planned Parenthood Votes and the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee have also pitched in.

Michelle Malkin wrote that “the significance of this historic and unprecedented battle cannot be overstated.”

As I’ve reported over the past several months, the effort was an astonishing grass-roots effort in which ordinary citizens gathered more than 16,000 signatures for a recall petition in Colorado Springs over a matter of weeks. The role of women (Coloradans Laura Carno, Kelly Maher, Kim Weeks were among the leading lights) in pushing back against false gun-grabbing narratives and smears was invaluable. The birth control fear-mongering failed. The use of social media to organize echoes other successful Tea Party efforts.

Via Katie Pavlich of Townhall, a statement from the NRA:

 he National Rifle Association, which helped fund the recall effort, has issued a statement.

A historic grassroots effort by voters in Colorado’s Senate District 11 has resulted in the recall of Colorado Senate President John Morse (D). The people of Colorado Springs sent a clear message to the Senate leader that his primary job was to defend their rights and freedoms and that he is ultimately accountable to them – his constituents, and not to the dollars or social engineering agendas of anti-gun billionaires.

Recall proceedings began earlier this year after Sen. Morse pushed through anti-gun legislation that restricted the ability of law-abiding residents to exercise their Second Amendment rights, including their inherent right to self-defense. This effort was driven by concerned citizens, who made phone calls, knocked on doors, and worked diligently to turn voters out in this historic effort.

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to have stood with the men and women in Colorado who sent a clear message that their Second Amendment rights are not for sale. We look forward to working with NRA-PVF “A” rated and endorsed Bernie Herpin (R) from Colorado Springs.

COLORADO SPRINGS RECALL ELECTION OF DEMOCRAT JOHN MORSE GETS UNDER WAY WITH EARLY VOTING STARTING

The Colorado  vote to recall two state Democrats who angered voters earlier this year when they helped pass draconian gun control bills, is in full swing with long lines and what elections officials called “surprisingly high turnouts”.

Yesterday marked the first day of voting in the recall election of Democrat State Senator John Morse as more than 3,500 voters from his El Paso County Senate district headed to the polls. Polls in Pueblo Democrat Senator Angela Giron’s recall opened, last week.

The Denver Post reports:

Funded in part by the National Rifle Association and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whose group Mayors Against Illegal Guns played a pivotal role in the gun legislation that passed in the past session, both sides of the recalls have been furiously working these final days to get supporters to the polls.

If Morse and Giron are recalled, two Republican candidates, Bernie Herpin of El Paso County and George Rivera of Pueblo, will take their place in the state Senate.

Conservative blog, Revealing Politics has been on the ground with cameras everywhere. If there is voter fraud going on in Colorado – they are capturing it.

Just before the end of the first day of early voting in the Colorado recall election of Senate President John Morse, some college age students showed up with 10 ballots in hand, each.

Our team hit the field running for the first day of our “Recall Transparency Project” and although there were lots of highlights (check our feed here) there are a few notable moments:

Two dudes just walking down the street taking pro-recall signs.

Our awesome field guy Jim got the cops called on him.

Two REALLY EXCITED recall voters were so excited to be at the polls they backed into each other.

 

Saturday Movie Matinee: Highlights From The NRA Leadership Forum

Gun rights supporters are gathered in Houston, Friday and Saturday for the NRA’s first meeting since successfully fending off the Obama administration’s push to enforce stricter gun laws.

Judge Jeanine Pirro’s Amazing Speech at NRA-ILA Leadership Forum:

It’s a doozy, folks:

2013 NRA Annual Meetings: Rick Perry:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry addresses the crowd at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum, an event of the 2013 NRA Annual Meetings in Houston, Texas. Perry argues that gun control sells the false premise that it is solving a problem, when all it does is make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves.

The Blaze: ‘LET THEM BE DAMNED!’: WAYNE LAPIERRE SAVAGES ANTI-GUN ‘ELITES’:

“The media and the political elites, they denigrate us and they cringe at the sight of long lines at gun shows around this country. They mock Americans buying firearms at a record pace…they don’t get it because they don’t get America,” LaPierre said.

After President Barack Obama said the NRA “willfully lied” to the American people about defeated gun legislation last month, LaPierre noted how Obama had tried to reassure gun owners during his re-election campaign.

“Liars? Really?” LaPierre said. “This from a man who spent his entire re-election campaign saying he supported our Second Amendment rights and would never try to take anyone’s gun away. And he calls us liars?”

SEAL Chris Kyle’s wife Taya Emotional Speech at NRA-ILA Leadership Forum:

Via The Blaze: 

Before Taya Kyle, the wife of slain Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, even said a word, the crowd at the National Rifle Association Leadership Forum was on their feet giving her the longest standing ovation of the day. Just before she took the stage, a video honoring Kyle was shown at the Houston event.

“I challenge anyone to tell me there isn’t evil in this world,” Kyle said, her voice drenched in emotion. “From the days of Cain and Abel, we know all too well there will always be evil. But that evil shouldn’t take away our freedoms. In fact, the only way to defeat evil is by taking advantage of our freedoms.

Kyle went on to talk about the side of her husband that people never knew.

“First, promise me that you won’t think of Chris solely as a hero. He wouldn’t want that. Instead, I ask you to see him the way he would’ve wanted you to see him. As just an everyday boy who did his best at what he loved, growing into an everyday man, loving his God, loving his country…and loving his family,” she said, wiping a tear from her eye as the audience interrupted her with applause.

Via Mediaite: Sarah Palin NRA Full Speech 2013, Quotes Shakespeare, Threatens To Chew Tobacco:

 Taking the stage in a t-shirt that read “Women Hunt” in pink lettering, Sarah Palin riled up the crowd at today’s NRA convention in Houston, Texas. Palin spoke for more than 12 minutes about her strong defense of the Second Amendment and other conservative principles. She even attempted to recreate her popular “Big Gulp” moment from her CPAC speech earlier this year by pulling out a tin of chewing tobacco and threatening to “dip” on stage.

 

 The Conversation: Video: Ted Cruz Challenges Joe Biden to a Gun Debate at NRA Convention in Houston:

Cruz, noting Joe Biden’s pledge to revive the fight for gun control, challenged him to a debate about the best way to end violent gun crimes.

“If he believes the answer to violent crime is not prosecuting felons and fugitives, not prosecuting  gun crimes, but going after the constitutional rights of law abiding citizens, I would like to invite the Vice President to engage in an hour long conversation and debate: How do we stop crime?

InstaVision: Michael Barone: Obama and the Democrats Could Not Beat the NRA:

Glenn Reynolds talks to Michael Barone about President Obama’s failure to push gun control legislation through the Senate. Has Obama lost his persuasive abilities, or is he asking too much from congress and the American people? Could the real problem be that President Obama has never encountered true dissent in his political life?

Now from a state that is quickly becoming a basket case via Revealing Politics: (NSFW) Sen. Owen Hill finds the right words:

Colorado Senator Owen Hill found the best words to describe a complete overhaul of Colorado’s election scheme. If signed into law, the bill would allow for the same lax standards of registration and voting as is currently written into CO law but extended to election day. For registration it’s merely the last 4 digits of a Social Security number if the registrant claims they don’t have a Colorado ID. For casting a ballot the standard is as low as an unspecified utility bill, a pay stub, or a bank statement. In theory a person could walk into a vote center give any four unverifiable digits, a “utility” bill and cast a ballot,
