I recently read on Fox News that CNN is suing the White House:
There’s actually quite a few more restrictions specified therein than that, but suffice it to say that Acosta clearly violated a number of them, on recorded video, and in front of the entire nation.
the entire content of the agreement in the presence of three White House attorneys-witnesses while recording it on video. Of course, the WH will have to record and witness all future new WH Press Corps reporters, although after the next three or four, they can lower the burden to just one attorney-witness and a video recording as the agreement is read aloud (play a recording?) to the next candidate reporter.
lawsuits by creating both crystal clear and court-admissible instructions on what members of the White House Press Corps can and cannot do. The instructions cannot limit the questions that are asked. They absolutely can require reporters to both cease and desist all further questioning and sit down when the President turns to another reporter.

Years ago, our Founding Fathers knew the dangers of an unarmed populace, so they MANDATED that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” They even stated that it was “necessary to the security of a free nation (state).
One gent, an ER doc, once spent the afternoon trying to convince me that firearms were “bad” because of “all the people he had to stitch up, if not zip up, in his emergency room.
Let’s examine that.
In 2013, there were 73,505 injuries and 33,636 deaths related to firearms. Their total comes to 107,141 firearms-related injuries and deaths.
Also in 2013, there were 1.3 million violent crimes. Of those, roughly 725,000 violent crimes were stopped by armed citizens. That’s 6.8 times more good than bad. Furthermore, experts examining the UK’s firearms ban estimate that violent crime would increase to between 200% and 300% of current levels if firearms were banned in the U.S. That’s an additional 1.3 to 2.6 million violent crimes, but without the attenuating effect of 750,000 stops.
The net effect would be a 192% increase from our current 1.3 million violent crimes per year to roughly 3.8 million violent crimes per year. That’s nearly 3 times as much violent crime. “No way!” you say. Wrong. The United Kingdom experience a tripling of its violent crime following its firearms ban, and violent crime remains 2.74 (“nearly 3”) times higher than it was before.
Now you know WHY I carry a firearm. Now you know WHY I firmly support our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. I support it because it’s safer — many times safer — than getting rid of them.
Yet along come the libtards, who cannot for the life of them figure out that assaults with firearms are just as deadly as automobile accidents, and that violent crime is 100 times more likely. They’re all for wearing seat belts, not to mention prohibiting supersize soft drinks, but they refuse to even consider the only effective solution to a very real problem that’s 109 times more prevalent than motor vehicle deaths.
Bottom Line: There were 1.28 million violent crimes in the U.S. in 2017. That comes to 382.9 per 100k people, which is 109 times more likely than dying in a motor vehicle accident.
THIS is why I carry a firearm. Of COURSE I carry a firearm. You should, too. You wear seat belts, don’t you? Then why wouldn’t you protect yourself against a threat that 109 times more prevalent than motor vehicle deaths?
To all the blitheringly idiotic liberals who think they know better: No, you do not. You don’t know the facts. You’re ignorant. All you know is the predigested liberal anti-gun mantra, factless ideals that have no basis in reality.
The FBI’s own statistics blow all of your anti-gun and gun control arguments totally out of the water. You’re idiots with irrational fears. Not only do so-called “gun-free zones” never work, they backfire, actually attracting mass shooters. When it comes to firearms, you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about and really need to shut the hell up and stop interfering in other people’s lives.
The following FAQs are taken from the University of Colorado at Boulder’s Weapons on Campus page maintained by CU Boulder’s Police Department. They are very well organization and exceptionally well-written. I am preserving them here as a prime example of How It’s Done.
Whether you own firearms or not, it is very much in your own best personal interest not only to FIGHT BACK against their incessant infringement on our right to keep and bear arms, but also to help educate them as to why it’s in their bests interests, as well.
Here’s the main reason: Everywhere governments have curtailed the right of their citizens to keep and bear arms, the overall violent crime rate has skyrocketed. Sure, murders by gun went down, but murders overall go up, along with all other violent crime.
Here’s another reason: Fully HALF of all mass shootings are stopped by armed citizens.
Here’s a third reason: Roughly 725,000 violent crimes are stopped by armed citizens each and every year. Some reports put that number far higher, around 1.3 million. Infringing on the right of the people to keep and bear arms will never — can never — reduce either crime in general or mass shootings in particular. The violent crime rate in the United Kingdom TRIPLED when their blitheringly idiotic government deprived the citizenry of their right to keep and bear arms, and those same blitheringly idiotic citizens LET them.
Consider: In 2015, the United States of America had 13,286 gun-related deaths. With a 2015 population of 319,929,162, that comes to 4.15 gun-related deaths per 100,000 people. As a double-check of my accuracy, Nation Master lists that as 4.2 in 2010. But the United Kingdom’s murder rate is 11.68. That’s 2.8 — nearly three times — higher than the U.S.
The UK’s murder rate used to be on par with that of the U.S. before they banned most civilian ownership of arms. This is what happens when you deny the ability of a private citizen to effectively secure themselves, their family, and their problem.
The same thing happened in Australia, when they infringed on the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
This is not a new phenomenon. All other things being equal, a well-armed citizenry always has a significantly lower violent crime rate than a disarmed citizenry. This is WHY our Founding Fathers wrote “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” into our Constitution’s Second Amendment.
It just works. Stop messing with it.
While you’re at it, stop comparing liberal hot spots like Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, New Orleans, and St. Louis to the rest of America. The right of the people to keep and bear arms is seriously infringed in those locations, and it shows. Liberal policies do not bring about security, and that shows, as well.
Although I’m not fan of Obama, I’m hardly a conspiracy nut, either. In fact, I usually lean towards debunking conspiracies, primarily on the basis of science. For example, in these articles I debunk chemtrails, in large part because my time as a rated officer in the U.S. Air Force with thousands of hours over twenty years flying medium to heavy aircraft strongly leads me to believe the entire idea of chemtrails is absolute hogwash. Similarly, I’m not exactly a fan of the blithering idiots who claim the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks were faked, either. Such crap is an insult to the memories of both the innocent victims as well as the heroic rescuers who gave their lives on September 11, 2001.
But as an amateur scientist, having studied engineering in college, and with three degrees, two in science, two graduate, and two summa cum laude, I’m not going look the other way when more than mere coincidence and a preponderance of the evidence points to a different conclusion than one claimed by the subject or reached by the laughably enthralled mainstream media who backed him at every turn. Ok, at the graduate level there’s no such thing as “summa cum laude.” However, top of my class, both times, with the highest GPA… You get my drift.
Barack Hussein Obama II aka “Barry Soetoro” was born on August 4, 1861, supposedly in Honolulu, HI. I find it strange those who maintain his Wikipedia entry feel the need to mention “two years after the territory was admitted to the Union as the 50th state.” Furthermore, the fact that his Wikipedia entry gushes with praise, rather than objectivity, such as, “Obama signed many landmark bills into law,” tells me those who maintain his page are hardly objective.
So, let’s head elsewhere for information, and by “information,” I’m referring to the peculiar information which appears to indicate something “not quite right” is going on.
First, he sealed his collegiate records. Why would he do that? Bad grades? Who cares? He smoked dope as part of “The Choom Gang” and was still elected.
Some say it’s because he was a foreign student. Naturally, this popped up on the Internet several years back:
Well, lo and behold, Snopes was kind enough to thoroughly debunk that for us by providing a copy of the supposedly real student ID from which it was copied:
Or was it? Did you see any video of Thomas Lugert testifying under sworn oath that his was the real ID? The only piece of information that leads me to belief that Obama’s was faked is a tiny missing piece of crown beneath the “O” in Soetoro. Snopes claims that “the pictured card couldn’t possibly have been a Columbia University student ID issued to Barack Obama in 1981, as the digital ID card format is uses wasn’t introduced at Columbia until 1996.”
Ok, because Snopes claims something, then it MUST be true, right? Well, at least they provided a link to Columbia University’s archives. But the argument that “it was digital” holds zero weight with me, as my university student ID which I received in 1981 had a bar code for registering for classes, checking into the infirmary, access to the gym, and checking out books at the library. It was “digital,” although the photograph was still punched from a Polaroid and laminated to the card. Still, it was digital. In 1981.
Due to the presence of Columbia’s article on his card, along with many similar articles in their archives, I’m inclined to agree that Snopes’ argument about the student ID card is true.
Second, there’s the case of the missing birth certificate, which brings up the case of the allegedly faked birth certificate along with the case of the strange death of the Hawaiian official who certified Obama’s regenerated birth certificate copy as being official.
Let’s take these one at a time.
Why did it take several years for Obama to cough up a copy of his birth certificate? All other U.S. citizens can obtain a certified copy of their original between a few days to a month (30 days is standard) to, at most, 3 months (90 days). I’m not going to post a copy of the Hawaiian birth certificate he finally produced.
Ok, I changed my mind. Here’s the copy you’ll currently find at obamawhitehouse.archives.gov. And here you’ll find a long-winded explanation by Dan Pfeiffer, “Former Assistant to the President and Senior Advisor.”
The problem is, that’s not the same copy that was first floated back in 2011, the one that many said showed Photoshop artifacts galore. And yet, countless websites picked up on problems with the first one, as well as this one.
And what of Hawaiian Health Director Helen Fuddy? Even USA Today reports she was “the Hawaiian health official who verified the authenticity of President Obama’s birth certificate.” It’s not the fact that she died, nor that she died in an airplane accident. What strikes me as very strange is the fact that of the pilot and eight passengers, all survived without a scratch except for her. Here’s the video of the ditching:
Interestingly enough, Aviation Safety Network reports that Fuddy and one other passenger inadvertently used child life jackets, and that Fuddy’s, “the passenger who died before the first responders arrived was found wearing a partially inflated infant life vest.”
Now, I don’t know about you, but as an avid skin diver, S.C.U.B.A. diver, body-surfer, and certified sailboat skipper, I’ve spent plenty of time in salt water. Even back when I was 6% body fat, I floated. Everyone floats in salt water, as it’s significantly more dense than the human body. All you need to do is relax. Supposedly, her autopsy revealed that she suffered from a “hyperventilation-induced heart failure.” Is that even a thing? I don’t know, as I’m not a cardiologist. I do, however, find it difficult to believe that anyone living in Hawaii would panic after finding themselves in the warm waters of Hawaii.
Now, perhaps all of these are indeed mere coincidences. However, I’m not the only one who raises the “Huh? Waitaminute…” flag. I’m not the only one who sees this as possibly being just a little too convenient. Sealed collegiate records. Birth certificate missing for more than two years. Tragic and quite rare manner of death for the only person who could have recanted at a later date…
Third, there’s the case of Obama’s social security number(s). I’ll leave this as an exercise for the reader. It only took me about ten seconds to found a number of mainstream news articles wondering about this, as well.
The Bottom Line: All we care about is whether or not he was ever actually eligible to be a U.S. president, and if he wasn’t, then bringing to justice both him and each and every member of the Democrat National Convention/Party who played any role in selecting, grooming, and supporting him, as well as hiding his records.
I’m not saying she was silenced. I am saying that given the rather long odds against these being coincidences, as well as the Democrat Party’s rather length history of lying, cheating, stealing, manipulation, and other underhanded techniques, most recently with the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation (WHO gave passes to all those rabble-rousers, again?), then I certainly cannot put it past them. No sane, rational human being ever could.
