Having called out Republican-in-name-only GOPers for years (HERE), SHN – a Conservative site – has taken its share of hits from stuffy RINOs that put their institution before the Constitution. Onward. And may those go-along-to-get-along Socialists prematurely experience the same ‘benefits’ (Room 101) Big Brother has in store for us commoners.
Big Government Is Now The GOP Platform
(BATR) Collectivism is alive and well within the party apparatus of the Republican jellyfish tax cutters. This loathsome game of surrender is the hallmark of phony conservatives. The article, Why the GOP are cowards, needs to be read again, since its application has proven once again that big government is in actuality, the default position of the party of double talk.
“Republicanism is not equivalent with the GOP political party. Genuine conservatism has had fleeting representation within that party. Examine the history and the principles of each. A real conservative stands for the principles of individual civil liberty and personal responsibility, limited government, states rights, separation of powers – federalism, minimal taxes, honest money, bona fide free enterprise, defense of borders, an American First foreign policy, lawful statues and traditional values. A true conservative believes in the righteousness of the 1776 Revolution. Republicans that are authentic conservatives have a serious dilemma, how do you justify the record of the GOP?”
Review the House of Representative totals, as Roll Call provides in the Breaking Down the Budget Vote, with a link how each member voted. Mark the weasels and prepare for the primary season.
When the august Cato Institute challenges the credibility of the GOP in How Serious Are Republicans?, the rank and file conservatives better face up to the fact that voting Republican is akin to blacks casting their ballot for Democrats. Both parties take for granted their core constituencies, while selling them out for the authoritarian supra government that never improves the lives of regular citizens.
The John Boehner speakership is synonymous with capitulation. In many ways, the combat against federal tyrants intensifies and gathers more recruits, when the face of the enemy is a pure progressive police state. Cooperative captivity is no more tolerable then peaceful coexistence.
Citizens unwilling to take the battle to the government with forceful lobbying of their viewpoints deserve enslavement. Third party activism is imperative so that the electorate can compare a liberty directed, small government manifesto to the bipartisan state-controlled platform pushed by both major parties.
How many times do you need to be kicked in the face before you stop turning the other cheek? Obama and Boehner share the same bathhouse. Both keep sticking it in the derrière of the taxpayer. That Republican “Big Tent” now covers the socialists that pretend to be representing the people, while empowering the big government nightmare.

Sheriffs Refuse To Enforce Gun Control Laws
(NYTime) When Sheriff John Cooke of Weld County explains in speeches why he is not enforcing the state’s new gun laws, he holds up two 30-round magazines. One, he says, he had before July 1, when the law banning the possession, sale or transfer of the large-capacity magazines went into effect. The other, he “maybe” obtained afterward.He shuffles the magazines, which look identical, and then challenges the audience to tell the difference.
“How is a deputy or an officer supposed to know which is which?” he asks.
Colorado’s package of gun laws, enacted this year after mass shootings in Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn., has been hailed as a victory by advocates of gun control. But if Sheriff Cooke and a majority of the other county sheriffs in Colorado offer any indication, the new laws — which mandate background checks for private gun transfers and outlaw magazines over 15 rounds — may prove nearly irrelevant across much of the state’s rural regions.
Some sheriffs, like Sheriff Cooke, are refusing to enforce the laws, saying that they are too vague and violate Second Amendment rights. Many more say that enforcement will be “a very low priority,” as several sheriffs put it. All but seven of the 62 elected sheriffs in Colorado signed on in May to a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the statutes.
The resistance of sheriffs in Colorado is playing out in other states, raising questions about whether tougher rules passed since Newtown will have a muted effect in parts of the American heartland, where gun ownership is common and grass-roots opposition to tighter restrictions is high.
In New York State, where Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed one of the toughest gun law packages in the nation last January, two sheriffs have said publicly they would not enforce the laws — inaction that Mr. Cuomo said would set “a dangerous and frightening precedent.” The sheriffs’ refusal is unlikely to have much effect in the state: According to the state’s Division of Criminal Justice Services, since 2010 sheriffs have filed less than 2 percent of the two most common felony gun charges. The vast majority of charges are filed by the state or local police.
In Liberty County, Fla., a jury in October acquitted a sheriff who had been suspended and charged with misconduct after he released a man arrested by a deputy on charges of carrying a concealed firearm. The sheriff, who was immediately reinstated by the governor, said he was protecting the man’s Second Amendment rights.
And in California, a delegation of sheriffs met with Gov. Jerry Brown this fall to try to persuade him to veto gun bills passed by the Legislature, including measures banning semiautomatic rifles with detachable magazines and lead ammunition for hunting (Mr. Brown signed the ammunition bill but vetoed the bill outlawing the rifles).
“Our way of life means nothing to these politicians, and our interests are not being promoted in the legislative halls of Sacramento or Washington, D.C.,” said Jon E. Lopey, the sheriff of Siskiyou County, Calif., one of those who met with Governor Brown. He said enforcing gun laws was not a priority for him, and he added that residents of his rural region near the Oregon border are equally frustrated by regulations imposed by the federal Forest Service and the Environmental Protection Agency.
This year, the new gun laws in Colorado have become political flash points. Two state senators who supported the legislation were recalled in elections in September; a third resigned last month rather than face a recall. Efforts to repeal the statutes are already in the works.

Araphahoe High Shooter – a bullying left wing Keynesian extremist: HERE
Liberal College Girl – She’s mean. She’s nasty. And she hates everything to do with Christmas: HERE
Much like their reporter’s ‘angelic‘ portrayal of Trayvon Martin and suggestions that ‘Knockout‘ terrorism is just ‘game’ kids play, the Denver Post – and MSM as a whole – are desperately trying to get the general public to believe that the Arapahoe High School shooter was actually the ‘victim’ in yesterday’s ordeal. Why? Because ‘hate-filled radical left wing nut job environmentalists’ don’t make good poster children for their endless gun ban campaigns.
He was not a left wing extremist, he was a ‘good political thinker’.
He was not a Conservative hating radical, he had ‘strong political beliefs’.
He was not an entitled Marxist-educated Liberal, he was a ‘religious’ fellow that ‘attended Bible study’.
He was not anti-capitalist, his views were merely ‘outside the mainstream’.
He was not anti-2nd Amendment, he was just ‘outspoken’ and ‘popular with people he knew’.
He was not a Democrat terrorist, he was from a ‘normal middle-class family’ with a ‘score to settle’.
Oh, and the ‘bullying’ part? From where I’m sitting, using a shotgun to hunt down your teacher over an argument would be the ultimate act of ‘bullying’.
And just like you, I have much better things to do this Saturday than spend my time dissecting fallacies spewing from the ‘Ministry of Truth’, on the other hand…
Arapahoe High Gunman Held Strong Political Beliefs
(Denver Post) The teenage gunman who entered Arapahoe High School on Friday afternoon and shot two fellow students with a shotgun was outspoken about politics, was a gifted debater and might have been bullied for his beliefs, according to students who knew him.
Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson identified the gunman as Karl Pierson, an 18-year-old student.
“He had very strong beliefs about gun laws and stuff,” said junior Abbey Skoda, who was in a class with Pierson during her freshman year. “I also heard he was bullied a lot.”
Robinson said that his department was investigating reports that Pierson was seeking to settle a score with a teacher after a confrontation.
Even before authorities named the gunman, friends and neighbors were in shock as word spread that Pierson was a dedicated, bright student from a religious family that attends Bible study meetings.
“They’re just a normal middle-class family, like many of the families around here,” said neighbor Diane Shea.
On Friday night, neighbors huddled in the quiet Highlands Ranch neighborhood adorned with holiday lights to console one another.
Neighbors and students remembered Pierson as a track athlete and a member of the Arapahoe speech-and-debate team whose mother worked for the Douglas County School District.
In April, Pierson placed third in national extemporaneous speaking at the National Qualifying Tournament held at Cherry Creek High School, earning him a spot in the national tournament in June.
After the June competition, he wrote on Facebook: “Hey guys! I just got back from day 2 of nationals and I’m sorry to say I am not moving on, nor am I in the top 60 in the country. Thank you from everyone for your support, and have a great rest of the summer and hope we can send some more guys to nationals in Kansas next year!”
Jo VanDeWege, who has lived across the street from the family for five years, described Pierson’s mother as outgoing and said the family was “very nice, very kind.”
Pierson’s parents divorced in late 2011, according to court records. The divorce was finalized in August 2012.
Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with Pierson, described him as very opinionated.
“He was exuberant, I guess,” Conrad said. “A lot of people picked on him, but it didn’t seem to bother him.”
In one Facebook post, Pierson attacks the philosophies of economist Adam Smith, who through his invisible-hand theory pushed the notion that the free market was self-regulating. In another post, he describes himself as “Keynesian.”
“I was wondering to all the neoclassicals and neoliberals, why isn’t the market correcting itself?” he wrote. “If the invisible hand is so strong, shouldn’t it be able to overpower regulations?”
Pierson also appears to mock Republicans on another Facebook post, writing “you republicans are so cute” and posting an image that reads: “The Republican Party: Health Care: Let ‘em Die, Climate Change: Let ‘em Die, Gun Violence: Let ‘em Die, Women’s Rights: Let ‘em Die, More War: Let ‘em Die. Is this really the side you want to be on?”*
*Ladies and gentleman, it is not ‘hate-speech’ when Liberals lash out. – Sad Hill
Carl Schmidt and Brendon Mendelson, both seniors at Arapahoe High, knew Pierson. They said he had political views that were “outside the mainstream,” but they did not elaborate.
Schmidt said the shooter “was an outspoken kid about what he believed and a good political thinker.”
Mendelson added, “He did have a lot of friends. He was popular with the people he knew.”

Shots Fired At Arapahoe High School
(Denver Post) Hundreds of students fled in terror and many others huddled in the corners of locked-down classrooms on Friday after a gunman opened fire at Arapahoe High School.
Students who fled the school said at least two students were shot by another student in the cafeteria, but that could not immediately be confirmed. Police SWAT teams swarmed the school, which is at the corner of South University Boulevard and Dry Creek Road in Centennial. Bomb squads were also called to the scene.
The shooting began about 12:30 p.m.
Becky O’Guin, a spokeswoman with South Metro Fire Rescue, said firefighters were called out to the school at 12:30 p.m. on reports of a fire.
“We’re on the scene with fire units and medics,” O’Guin said.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation also had agents on scene.

PolitiFact – The Biggest Internet Fraud – Is Rewriting Its Own History
(Breitbart) Thursday, the fraudulent fact-check site PolitiFact awarded its “lie of the Year” to Barack Obama for his, “If you like your insurance you can keep your insurance” ObamaCare sales con. But in order to do so, PolitiFact had to rewrite its own history after they spent three years aiding and abetting Obama by spreading this exact same lie:
[I]n an October 2008 column — just before the election — PolitiFact actually rated Obama’s promise as “true.” It said at the time: “Obama is accurately describing his health care plan here. He advocates a program that seeks to build on the current system, rather than dismantling it and starting over.”
In other words, it rated him on the basis of whether he was accurately stating his own campaign promise, a hurdle no politician could fail to clear.
In an August 2009 column, PolitiFact did pull back, noting: “It’s not realistic for Obama to make blanket statements that ‘you’ will be able to ‘keep your health care plan.’”
Since Obama was making just that blanket claim, it ought to have been rated “false,” but PolitiFact decided against that. “[O]ne of the points of reform is to change the way health care works right now. So we rate Obama’s statement Half True,” it ruled. Rather than hold Obama to account, it moved the goalposts instead.
This wasn’t the worst of it. As Higgins notes, PolitiFact not only rewrote the definition of “fact” to rate Obama’s obvious lies as true, but twice during the 2012 election, the phony fact-check site accused of Mitt Romney of lying with his accurate claim that “up to 20 million Americans could lose their insurance under ObamaCare.”
Romney’s statement was based on analysis by the Congressional Budget Office.
One of those “false” ratings for Romney came in June of 2012, the same month PolitiFact awarded Obama a “half true” for repeating what PolitiFact now acknowledges was the “lie of the year.”
PolitiFact is one of the biggest frauds on the Internet and the biggest in the mainstream media. As we can see with PolitiFact’s ongoing ObamaCare fraud, PolitiFact’s entire purpose is to protect Democrats and their agenda by spinning lies into truth and truth into lies. The media love PolitiFact because the phony fact-checks give the media a false sheen of objectivity.
On the most consequential domestic policy programs passed by our government in a decade, the charlatans at PolitiFact not only helped spread what they knew was a lie; they then awarded their own lie “lie of the year.”
Shameless and dangerous.

Michelle Reacts To Obama And Danish Prime Minister ‘Selfies’ During Mandela Memorial
(Beck) After delivering a very egotistical speech at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in Johannesburg, South Africa earlier today, President Obama was caught taking ‘selfies’ in the stands with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt. First Lady Michelle Obama, who was stoically sitting next to the group, did not participate.
You know the Obama Administration is already working on a way to spin the incident, which promoted Stu to question what the excuse would be this time.
Maybe he can blame the Dutch Prime Minister for taking the picture. Or they can claim they were really watching a video of Mandela on the phone.

Fake Sign Language Interpreter Used At Nelson Mandela Memorial
(Yahoo) Johannesburg – While millions across the globe were inspired and moved by speeches made at former President Nelson Mandela’s memorial service on Tuesday, the international deaf community expressed outrage over what they say was a fake sign language interpreter.
According to a report on Australian site, SBS News, deaf South African and board member of the World Federation of the Deaf Youth Section Braam Jordaan said the interpreter was simply making up his own signs.
“The structure of his hand, facial expressions and the body movements did not follow what the speaker was saying,” Jordaan was quoted as saying. “What happened at the memorial service is truly disgraceful thing to see – it should not happen at all.”
Jordaan said the interpreter seemed to simply be making up his own hand movements.
A representative for the World Association of Sign Language Interpreters, Sheena Walters also told SBS the hand movements the interpreter was using was not recognisable as any type of sign language:
“Most sign languages across the world share a similar structure and pattern and this person seems to be making a lot of repetitive signs and isn’t displaying the usual facial expression or structure of sign language that you would normally see.”
President Barack Obama waves standing next to the sign language interpreter after making his speech.
As the memorial service for the global icon and leader, affectionately known as Madiba, was streamed across nearly every news channel across the world, more and more members of the deaf community took to social media site Twitter to express their anger:
“ANC-linked interpreter on the stage with dep president of ANC is signing rubbish. He cannot sign. Please get him off,” tweeted Wilma Newhoudt-Druchen, the first deaf woman elected to South African Parliament.
While South African sign language interpreter, Francois Deysel tweeted that the interpreter was “making a mockery of our profession.”
“He was singing rubbish the whole time, meaning he was just throwing his hands around. #SignLanguage” tweeted RIP Mandela.
