Gabby Giffords' gun control group sues the Trump Admin

Giffords1

“Assault rifles” for me but not for thee.


If a gun grabber showed at least some interest in enforcing current gun laws, I might reevaluate their agenda. But they aren’t so I won’t.
From HuffPo: The gun control group led by former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) is suing the Trump administration for failing to turn over documents that could show the National Rifle Association’s influence over President Donald Trump’s gun policies.
The Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence filed a lawsuit against the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on Tuesday in the the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
The gun safety group is accusing ATF of refusing to respond to multiple Freedom of Information Act requests for documents relating to communications between administration officials and the NRA.
Specifically, Giffords’ group filed FOIA requests seeking any records relating to Trump administration policies on concealed carry reciprocity, gun silencers, bump stocks and assault weapon exports; evidence that Donald Trump Jr. improperly lobbied on behalf of gun manufacturing companies; communications between gun lobbying groups and senior administration officials following last month’s mass shooting in Las Vegas; and attempts by the NRA to review bump stock regulations in coordination with ATF.
HuffPost reached out to ATF for comment late Thursday afternoon. The person who answered the phone said nobody was available via email or phone to give a comment until Friday morning.
Trump’s firearms agenda is certainly proceeding along lines favored by the gun lobby.
In February, a leaked ATF document revealed a top official at the bureau urging a series of proposals that the NRA has long advocated. Last spring, the NRA sunk $1 million into helping Trump get Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch confirmed.
Last week, NBC obtained White House talking points being distributed to Trump allies on how to talk about the Las Vegas massacre. They sound a lot like the NRA’s talking points after mass shootings.
“The Trump administration appears willing to let the National Rifle Association dictate its federal gun safety policy, which includes remaining silent on how to stem our nation’s gun violence epidemic,” said Robyn Thomas, executive director of the Giffords Law Center. “Protecting the safety of Americans should be the top priority of any president. Unfortunately, gun lobby profits seem to be more important to President Trump.”
There have been 307 mass shootings in 2017, according to a New York Times tracker. Neither Congress nor Trump has taken any real action in response.

Sexgate: Comedian/actor Louis C.K. admits "showing my d*ck" to accusers

louis ck
This guy has had nothing nice to say about President Trump, calling him every name in the libtard handbook. For example, witness what Louis said about Trump:

Guess who is the real “messed up guy” now?
From NY Post: Louis C.K. has released a statement admitting guilt and apologizing following accusations from multiple women of sexual misconduct — including claims he masturbated in front of them or while on the phone — that ran Thursday in the New York Times.
“These stories are true,” C.K. says in a statement sent by his rep Lewis Kay. “At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my d–k without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your d–k isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.”
C.K. continues, “I have been remorseful of my actions. And I’ve tried to learn from them. And run from them. Now I’m aware of the extent of the impact of my actions. I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position. I also took advantage of the fact that I was widely admired in my and their community, which disabled them from sharing their story and brought hardship to them when they tried because people who look up to me didn’t want to hear it. I didn’t think that I was doing any of that because my position allowed me not to think about it. There is nothing about this that I forgive myself for. And I have to reconcile it with who I am. Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with.”
“I wish I had reacted to their admiration of me by being a good example to them as a man and given them some guidance as a comedian, including because I admired their work.”
He goes on, “The hardest regret to live with is what you’ve done to hurt someone else. And I can hardly wrap my head around the scope of hurt I brought on them. I’d be remiss to exclude the hurt that I’ve brought on people who I work with and have worked with who’s professional and personal lives have been impacted by all of this, including projects currently in production: the cast and crew of Better Things, Baskets, The Cops, One Mississippi, and I Love You Daddy. I deeply regret that this has brought negative attention to my manager Dave Becky who only tried to mediate a situation that I caused. I’ve brought anguish and hardship to the people at FX who have given me so much The Orchard who took a chance on my movie. and every other entity that has bet on me through the years.”
He concludes the statement, “I’ve brought pain to my family, my friends, my children and their mother. I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen.”

Al Gore Calls Media Coverage of Climate Change a "Nature Hike Through the Book of Revelation"

gore

ManBearPig: Concerned about false information…


ManBearPig is blowing more hot air to promote his sequel to An Inconvenient Truth.
From Hollywood Reporter: “Every night on the news is like a nature hike through the Book of Revelation,” Al Gore said Saturday night when asked his opinion of how the news media reports on climate change. “And I’ll wait for the newscasters to connect the dots,” he continued, adding that they rarely do.
Gore spoke about the state of the news media and its effect on the conversation surrounding global climate change at a Q&A before an advance screening of his his latest documentary, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, held at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
At the Fandango-sponsored event, actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt moderated the conversation with the former vice president of the United States, asking about “fake news” and its place in the denialist narrative about climate change.
“We have a challenge in the U.S., where climate in the news in concerned,” said Gore. “First: The line between news and entertainment has become a very porous line.” He added: “Second reason is that there is a pretty powerful and wealthy special interest of carbon polluters that have spent billions of dollars over the past three decades putting out false information.”
Gordon-Levitt asked Gore where he gets his own news. “I like to triangulate,” said Gore, adding his go-tos are The New York Times, The Guardian and The Wall Street Journal, adding, “I’ll read some red-state sites, as well.”
An Inconvenient Sequel, from directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, is the follow-up to Davis Guggenheim’s Oscar-winning 2006 doc An Inconvenient Truth. The Participant-produced sequel, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, will be released July 28 by Paramount.
Before the screening began, Gore prompted the audience to go to town-hall meetings, talk to their local representatives and do their own research on the global climate crisis. He concluded: “It has to come from the people because the news media is not giving it to us fairly and squarely now.”

New York Times scraps 'female genital mutilation' for being 'culturally loaded' term

serious
From Fox News: A top New York Times editor decided the paper shouldn’t use the term “female genital mutilation” because the phrase is too “culturally loaded” and widens a divide between the Western world and “people who follow the rite.”
Health and Science editor Celia Dugger said she came to the conclusion to refer to the act of removing the female genitalia of young girls as “genital cutting” during a trip to Africa in the 1990s. She spoke about her decision in a Times mailbag article in response to a reader’s question.
“I never minced words in describing exactly what form of cutting was involved, and there are many gradations of severity, and the terrible damage it did, and stayed away from the euphemistic circumcision, but chose to use the less culturally loaded term, genital cutting,” Dugger wrote. “There’s a gulf between the Western (and some African) advocates who campaign against the practice and the people who follow the rite, and I felt the language used widened that chasm.”
The term “female genital mutilation” has actually been used by the Times in six articles in 2017, according to a website search; however, the instances are extremely restricted. For instance, two of the mentions occur in the context of a quoted speech or statement, two were in opinion columns, one in a book review and one in the mailbag explanation of why the Times didn’t use the term. The abbreviation “FGM” appeared this year only in stories taken from wire services such as The Associated Press and Reuters.
The Daily Caller was one of the first organizations to draw attention to the Times’ practice; however, groups as ideologically opposite as the United Nations Population Fund have also written about the potential danger in referring to genital mutilation as “cutting.”
“UNFPA embraces a human rights perspective on the issue, and the term ‘female genital mutilation’ more accurately describes the practice from a human rights viewpoint,” a question-and-answer section of the UNFPA website says.
UNFPA estimates some 200 million women worldwide have been subjected to FGM, and though the procedure is typically practiced in African or Middle Eastern cultures, it’s spreading westward. Nearly 6,000 reported cases occurred in Britain from April 2015 to March 2016, according to the Health and Social Care Information Center, and, in the U.S., an Islamic doctor in Michigan was charged earlier this month with performing the procedure on a pair of 7-year-old girls.
The New York Times said the doctor had been “accused of performing genital cutting” in its version of the story.

Did the New York Times ignore top-selling book about abortionist/killer Gosnell?

gosnellpig

Convicted baby killer/abortionist Gosnell


I’d bet money on “yes.” This wouldn’t the first time that the New York Times has been questioned about their best-seller list.
From Fox News: It debuted at No. 3 on Amazon’s best seller list, but supporters of the true crime book “Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer” say that the New York Times intentionally kept it off its influential bestseller list.
The book focuses on former abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted of murdering three infants who were born alive during procedures. It sold out on Amazon in just three days, but the book’s authors and their supporters say it never showed up on the Times’ list.
“This is shocking that the coverup of the Gosnell story is continuing even after the mainstream media were so criticized for failing to cover the trial,” co-author Ann McElhinney recently told the Washington Examiner. “It’s clear that this is a blatant fake list in a fake news newspaper.”
McElhinney and her husband Phelim McAleer wrote the book after making a movie about the shocking case of late-term abortions and murder that took place at Gosnell’s Philadelphia clinic which led to his conviction and life sentence in 2013.
Officials for the New York Times denied intentionally keeping the book off the list, noting it is on the most current best sellers list for nonfiction. “Those reports are inaccurate,” a New York Times spokesperson said in a statement provided to Fox News. “‘Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer’ is #13 on the Feb. 12th Combined Print and E-book Nonfiction list.”
The statement added that the Times’s best-seller lists are based on a detailed analysis of book sales from a wide range of retailers who provide specific and confidential context of their sales each week. Despite claims that the true crime book was kept off the list by NYT brass, it currently sits on the nonfiction list at #13. The ranking is based off of sales for the first week of its release.
Other books on the bestseller list with “Gosnell” includes “The Book Of Joy” by Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu, “Born a Crime” a memoir written by The Daily Show host Trevor Noah and “Killing the Rising Sun” from Fox News’ anchor Bill O’Reilly.
The new list will appear in the Feb. 12 print edition of the New York Times Book Review but is already posted online. The rankings are based on sales for the week ending Jan. 28 the first week of “Gosnell’s” release.
Regnery Publishing, which released “Gosnell” charged in a recent news release that the Times “ignored real sales numbers.” “While Gosnell landed on the ‘Combined Print & E-Book Best Sellers’ list (at #13), the Times ignored the real sales numbers and refused to correctly list Gosnell as the fourth-bestselling nonfiction title,” reads the statement.
Amazon’s bestseller rankings are updated by the hour and include pre-sales which may be why the book ranked high upon its release.

Buzzfeed sued by firm named in Trump dossier

buzzfeed-ben-smith

Buzzfeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith


Hit the Fake News where is hurt$ the mo$t.
From NY Post: Buzzfeed was sued by the Russia-tied tech firm named in the dossier that contained unsubstantiated allegations against President Trump for including “libelous, unverified” information about the company, McClatchy reported Friday, citing the lawsuits.
The defamation suits were brought by XBT Holdings. Company lawyers reportedly filed complaints against BuzzFeed and its editor Ben Smith. A former British spy and his company were also named in complaints. The company seeks an “undetermined compensation for the damages.”
A Buzzfeed spokeman told McClatchy that it redacted the name of the company’s owner and “apologized for including it.”
McClatchy reported that the dossier said XBT and affiliates “had been using botnets and porn traffic to transmit viruses, plant bugs, steal data and conduct “altering operations” against the Democratic Party leadership.”
The suit reportedly says Alekej Gubarev, XBT’s owner, is married with three children and “has found his personal and professional reputation in tatters.”
The network did not give details about the information, saying the charges had not been verified, but BuzzFeed soon published the 35-page dossier. Most reputable news organizations, following up the story, also did not report the details.
Trump and his team was quick to attack news organizations that spread unsubstantiated reports about a damaging dossier last month collected on him by Russia, an incident that illustrates how old rules of journalism are being tested in today’s rapidly changing media world. Trump called BuzzFeed “a pile of garbage” for publishing the allegations.
CNN reported that Trump had been briefed by intelligence officials about compromising personal and financial information that Russia had collected on him.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and Vice President Pence sharply condemned those who spread the story. Spicer called BuzzFeed’s decision “outrageous and highly irresponsible,” while Pence said it was an effort by some in the media to delegitimize the election and discredit the incoming administration.
“The American people are sick and tired of it,” Pence said.
Meanwhile, Trump credited The New York Times, a newspaper he’s often been at odds with, for its decision not to publish what it could not independently verify.

NYT calls on Google to hide Hillary Clinton's failing health

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 19:57:52 +0000

eowyn2

The MSM don’t even bother to pretend to be objective in this election. They are now in-your-face with their partisan bias. See:

The latest media whore for Hillary is New York Times tech columnist Farhad Manjoo, age 38.

Farhad Manjoo

Patrick Howley reports for Breitbart News, Aug. 1, 2016, that in a tweet, Manjoo calls on Google to “fix” its search engine results to hide evidence of Hillary Clinton’s failing health, and dismisses talk of her health as “conspiracy theories”.

Farhad Manjoo tweet

Of course, liberals like Manjoo pick and choose when it comes to conspiracy theories: Hillary blaming the “vast right-wing conspiracy” is OK, but when it comes to anything that’s not in their Demonrat script, it’s just looney tinfoil-hat “conspiracy theories”.

From Wikipedia:

Farhad Manjoo (born August 19, 1978) is an American journalist and author. Manjoo was a staff writer for Slate magazine from 2008 to 2013 and left Slate in September 2013 to join The Wall Street Journal as a technology columnist. In January 2014, Manjoo became the “State of the Art” columnist for The New York Times, replacing David Pogue. He has been a contributor to National Public Radio since 2009.

Manjoo’s call for Google to censor its search engine results was in response to former New York governor Rudy Giuliani saying, during an argument on Fox News about how sick Hillary really is, “Go online and put down, ‘Hillary Clinton illness,’ and take a look at the videos yourself.”

Breitbart News‘ Howley notes that:

“Clinton frequently leans against stools on stage at her campaign speeches, and she admitted that she was exhausted by the end of the Democratic convention in Philadelphia — even though, as far as this reporter could tell, she was just sitting in her hotel the entire time until she gave her acceptance speech to scattered boos.”

FOTM has extensively posted on the many undeniable signs of Hillary’s ill health. See:

Update (Aug. 30, 2016):

Breitbart News reports that recent search engine results indicate Google, whose CEO is a supporter of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, is suppressing search results about her health, in contrast to two other search engines — Bing and Yahoo:

Searches for “Hillary Clinton’s he-” across three different search engines provide quite different results. When searched on Google, the first suggested searches provided are “Hillary Clinton’s headquarters,” “Hillary Clinton’s health plan,” and “Hillary Clinton’s healthcare plan.”

Search results on Bing return the suggestions, “Hillary Clinton’s health,” “Hillary Clinton’s health issues,” and “Hillary Clinton’s health and weight,” while search results on Yahoo return the suggestions, “Hillary Clinton’s health problems,” Hillary Clinton’s health,” and “Hillary Clinton’s health issues.”

What Cliven Bundy Really Said. The Full Quote Before NY Times Edited it.

I really don’t have a dog in this hunt. I just knew something was not right. Sure enough the New York Times released an edited version of transcript, and Media Matters Uploaded the same edited Vid to You-Tube. Please read and watch. Then make up your mind. We have been played, and if you’re not pissed off…then I don’t know.

I am ticked Off, All the Cowards who ran for cover.

Beck, Hannity, All the Pols. Cowards all.


First, this is textbook; Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals rule #12

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)”

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agXns-W60MI]

…” and so what I’ve testified to ya’, I was in the WATTS riot, I seen the beginning fire and I seen the last fire. What I seen is civil disturbance. People are not happy, people is thinking they did not have their freedom; they didn’t have these things, and they didn’t have them.

We’ve progressed quite a bit from that day until now, and sure don’t want to go back; we sure don’t want the colored people to go back to that point; we sure don’t want the Mexican people to go back to that point; and we can make a difference right now by taking care of some of these bureaucracies, and do it in a peaceful way.

Let me tell.. talk to you about the Mexicans, and these are just things I know about the negroes. I want to tell you one more thing I know about the negro.

When I go, went, go to Las Vegas, North Las Vegas; and I would see these little government houses, and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids…. and there was always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch. They didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for the kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for the young girls to do.

And because they were basically on government subsidy – so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never, they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered are they were better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things? Or are they better off under government subsidy?

You know they didn’t get more freedom, uh they got less freedom – they got less family life, and their happiness -you could see it in their faces- they were not happy sitting on that concrete sidewalk. Down there they was probably growing their turnips – so that’s all government, that’s not freedom.

Now, let me talk about the Spanish people. You know I understand that they come over here against our constitution and cross our borders. But they’re here and they’re people – and I’ve worked side-by-side a lot of them.

Don’t tell me they don’t work, and don’t tell me they don’t pay taxes. And don’t tell me they don’t have better family structure than most of us white people. When you see those Mexican families, they’re together, they picnic together, they’re spending their time together, and I’ll tell you in my way of thinking they’re awful nice people.

And we need to have those people join us and be with us…. not, not come to our party.

Just How Bad Is ObamaCare Website? Well Let Me Tell You. It's Unfixable According To Some Experts.

Why? Because it is a big fat bloated pig with 500 Million Lines of code.

Ok I’m no techno weenie so just how big is 500 million lines of code? Keep reading and you will find out. 

Opp's there goes another one.

Opp’s there goes another one.


(Hey Boss I need to requisition a new laptop. Umm, my dog ate it.)  

OK, the dog did not eat it.

OK, the dog did not eat it.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney    First Published: October 23, 2013: 7:04 AM ET

Experts say the major problems with the Obamacare website can’t reasonably be solved before the end of 2013, and the best fix would be to start over from scratch.

Yeah, what he said. Uh Huh!

Yeah, what he said. Uh Huh!


After assessing the website, Dave Kennedy, the CEO of information-security companyTrusted Sec, estimates that about 20% of Healthcare.gov needs to be rewritten. With a whopping 500 million lines of code, according to a recent New York Times report, Kennedy believes fixing the site would probably take six months to a year.
But would-be Obamacare enrollees only have until Dec. 15 to sign up for coverage starting at the beginning of 2014. Nish Bhalla, CEO of information-security firm Security Compass, said it “does not sound realistic at all” that Healthcare.gov will be fully operational before that point.
“We don’t even know where all of the problems lie, so how can we solve them?” Bhalla said. “It’s like a drive-by shooting: You’re going fast and you might hit it, you might miss it. But you can’t fix what you can’t identify.”
Several computer engineers said it would likely be easier to rebuild Healthcare.gov than to fix the issues in the current system. But it’s unlikely that the government would toss out more than $300 million worth of work.
The sheer size of Healthcare.gov is indicative of a major rush job. Rolling the site out too quickly likely increased the number of errors, and that makes the fixes more difficult to implement.
“Projects that are done rapidly
( May I ask didn’t they have like 3 years to build this?)
usually have a lot of [repetitive] code,” said Arron Kallenberg, a software engineer and tech entrepreneur. “So when you have a problem, instead of debugging something in a single location, you’re tracking it down all through the code base.”
To put 500 million lines of code into perspective, it took just 500,000 lines of code to send the Curiosity rover to Mars. Microsoft’s
(MSFTFortune 500)
 Windows 8 operating system reportedly has about 80 million lines of code.
And an online banking system might feature between 75 million and 100 million lines.
A “more normal range” for a project like Healthcare.gov is about 25 million to 50 million lines of code, Kennedy said.
“The [500 million lines of code] says right off the bat that something is egregiously wrong,” said Kennedy. “I jumped back when I read that figure. It’s just so excessive.”
Applicants might be able to at least register for Obamacare sooner than that, even if the site isn’t 100% perfect. The New York Times report said five million lines of code need to be replaced just so the site can run properly.
But the Obamacare website has bigger problems than simply getting people registered for health care. The code is also riddled with security holes, according to Kennedy, who outlined his cybersecurity concerns on Trusted Sec’s company blog.
“If someone can’t register, that’s obviously bad –– but if the information gets hacked, you’re talking about one of the biggest breaches in American history,” Kennedy said. “I think security is an afterthought at this point.”
( The security and hacking is a story unto itself. It is very bad. I’ll do a follow up tomorrow)
That might not be a major issue now, as people are still having trouble logging onto the site. But once it’s up and running, that code had better be made more secure.
“At this point, the car isn’t even moving,” Bhalla said. “But once we’re speeding down the road, you’re going to want that seatbelt to work.” To top of page
Here is a graph to help you understand how much code is in things. The more code, the more things go wrong. KISS. Keep It Simple Stupid.

The Left approve of stealing your bank savings

Five days ago, on March 16, 2013, the people of Cyprus were told by the grand poobahs of the Eurozone that as much as 10% of the deposits in their personal bank accounts would be “levied”, in exchange for a $13 billion (€10 billion) bail-out of their heavily indebted country to avoid bankruptcy and a banking collapse.
Cyprus is a small island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea to the east of Greece, and a member of the European Union (EU). The Eurozone is an economic and monetary union of 17 EU member states that have adopted the euro (€) as their common currency and sole legal tender.
The Eurozone’s levy was contingent on the approval of the Cypriot parliament, but parliament resoundingly rejected the levy. Meanwhile, to prevent a bank run, banks in Cypriot will remain closed “until next week”, euphemistically called a “bank holiday”.
If you need the grave import of what happened clearly spelled out, here it is:

  1. Money in our personal bank accounts is PRIVATE PROPERTY.
  2. The proposed levy, therefore, is THEFT/ROBBERY.
  3. This is not just another “tax.” This bank levy is particularly pernicious because what is proposed is the seizure of privately-owned bank deposits that had been guaranteed by the government, much like the FDIC bank deposits in the United States. What value does such a guarantee have if it can be withdrawn at will without any advance notice?
  4. A “bank holiday” means you can’t gain access to YOUR OWN MONEY.
  5. Although Cypriot’s parliament rejected the levy, the damage is already done. The Rubicon has been crossed: the idea of “wealth taxation,” that is the involuntary confiscation of privately-owned property, has now been breached. Sure enough, faster than you can say “Jiminy Cricket,” the governments of two other countries — New Zealand and Spain — already are making similar levy noises.

In case you’re doubtful about what the Left here in America think of this theft, below are the approving comments made by the elite of the American Left, posted on Twitchy, March 18, 2013.
