Another example of why the “no difference between the parties” line is a bunch of bulls***. Dems fight against Terrorists in word and deed, while Teapubbies talk a big game when it comes to law and order: but the Repub walk doesn’t match the talk.

Example Number A, take Cliven Bundy and his Moocher Militia, who violated even more laws than Bin Laden, but still got support from the GOP. In fact, not only do Repubs support Bundy’s sedition, they were lining up to get their pictures taken with him. And after members of the Bundy Bunch murdered some cops, “Republicans” said and did little or nothing  – except, of course, continued support.

Example Letter 2:  we see that Repubs love the Sovereign Citizen terrorists. The Justice Department calls these mutts the most dangerous security threat to our nation, but that doesn’t stop GOP politicos like LePage from including them in their inner circles, or granting them rights to carry weapons that scare the sh** out of law-abiding Americans. Hell, even when they commit terrorist crimes the Repubs don’t do much of anything about it.

Example the Third: always remember, Gentle Reader, Bush and his fellow Repubs allowed Bin Laden to get away with murder – the worst foreign terrorist attack on our soil, thousands dead, and the Tevangelicals said “meh”. They used hs face to whip up the population in a manner that even Goebbels would have envied. But while abusing his face, Repubs kissed his a**. Then, of course, they bitched about Obama, who brought Bin Laden to justice.

There we have it,  another example of the enormous differences between the two political parties.

Remember this when a Raging Righty or Loony Leftie tries to tell you that there is “little or no dfference”: that is a big, fat lie.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Let’s just take the guilt as given, shall we? Craven Cliven Bundy has been found guilty of any number of crimes by a court of law. He has committed more crimes since then in the full view of TV cameras.

And his Moocher Militia has been videoed and photographed (including by themselves) committing acts of treason, insurrection, sedition, interfering with law enforcement in the performance of their duties, incitement, intimidation, theft, and trespassing. It’s pretty much open and shut, innit? They, like their mooching Rancher buddy, are guilty as shit.
The evidence is overwhelming.

And they are turning it up to 11 now that the BLM caved. Yes, they had serious, valid concerns about a bloodbath. But surely there was something between mass killing and total surrender? Between picking the guilty to triumph over the law-abiding?

That’s what happened, and please don’t pretend otherwise. Here is one bit from the local news:

They were equally hostile to journalists covering the story. Pistol-packing militia men have blocked 8 News NOW’s access to public roads. Some poured lighter fluid around our news vehicle while others got physical.

And here are militia members threatening people who are just trying to drive across roads they paid for:

The government showed mercy to the guilty, and now the innocent are suffering at thir hands. Sure, the government says, they will deal with these terrorist motherfuckers someday. And while the authorities sit with their heads in the sand and their thumbs up their asses, the people they are sworn to protect are at the mercy of a load of armed, homicidal, deranged lunatics.

Mercy to the guilty, cruelty to the innocent. True in Adam Smith’s time, and it’s true in Nevada today, too.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

And getting away with it, too. We are witnessing a secessionist occupation in Nevada, and nobody is lifting a finger to stop them. Bundy’s terrorists are setting up armed checkpoints and harassing locals, just like the Taliban terrorists are doing in multiple countries around the world. From the link:

Democratic Rep. Steven Horsford, sent a letter to Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie about the safety of residents in the Bunkerville area. Horsford says his constituents have “expressed concern” over the presence of armed militia groups from out of state.

According to Horsford, his constituents say the militia have set up checkpoints where residents must prove they live in the area before they are allowed to pass and have set up a “persistent presence” along federal highways, and state and county roads. They also claim some have established an armed presence in the community.

Horsford told the sheriff that the militia are making people feel unsafe. Armed people from across the country arrived in Bunkerville weeks ago to support Bundy in his fight with the Bureau of Land Management over cattle the agency says are illegally grazing on federally managed lands.

If you’ll remember, the thieving, racist, un-American scumbucket Cliven Bundy made the BLM blink a while back, which this writer said would embolden his equally scumbucketish militia goons. That is clearly what has happened.

A seditious, secessionist, anti-Constitutional terrorist group has been emboldened to the extent that they are setting up armed compounds on Federal and State land, and pretty much acting like terrorist insurrectionists do in other countries. Which makes them the same as al_Quaida, the Taliban, anti-Ukrainian Russian agents, and others whom we rightly condemn for their illegal activities.

Two questions, then:
Number A; why do so many Americans support Cliven Bundy and his militia motherf***ers, and
Letter 2; why are the local, county, state, and federal government sitting around, letting the locals be terrorized and doing nothing to stop the militia asswipes?

Remember, peeps: this is what happens when you let the bullies win. When you let the criminals get off scot-free. When you let the terrorists win.

When the government, in other words, does everything it says it will never do.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Yesterday, this writer lamented the BLM’s stupid, short-sighted surrender to a thieving rancher and his terrorist supporters. Comments elsewhere were largely dismissive of the dangerous precedent that was being set, by those whose ideas are more based on theory than reality. As we can see today, reality trumps wishful thinking: the terrorist bastards are loudly claiming victory, and are using the BLM’s caving as proof.

An Arizona state representative in attendance, David Livingston, said the battle over the Bundy cows would serve as a unifying event for lawmakers across 11 western states working on state sovereignty issues.
“This was a major tipping point,” Livingston said.

So now the terrorist traitors will, as predicted, turn it up a notch. They are feeling frisky and are on the offensive, borrowing tactics like using women as human shields that are also used by al-Quaida and other violent motherf***ing extremists. Sure looks like they won, doesn’t it? Yup.

Throughout the decades-long imbroglio between Cliven Bundy (supposedly no relation to Ted) and the rest of America, one thing stands out as clear and consistent: his complete disregard for the rule of law. So what happens when a bunch of “militia” goons takes up arms against the lawful authorities and defeats them? His disrespect for the rule of law becomes even more intense, as it does for all those like him. This is going to breed more domestic terror activity.

You can say “at least a bloodbath was averted”, and that’s a fair point. But that’s based on the assumption that the terrorists would have actually started shooting, which is contrary to their own stated plans. Of course, now that they think we’re weak, they are far MORE likely to shoot next time: their belief in the power of their cheap-ass imported wanna-be assasult weapons has been magnified by the surrender monkeys at the BLM.

The terrorists and Bundy got a cookie and a pat on the head, instead of the boot up the arse and trip to jail they deserved. Anyone who thinks this will do anything other than encourage them to commit more acts of violent, treasonous sedition has their head in a very dark and smelly place. This will not end well for any of us.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

The much-maligned Ambassador Rice had it right the first time. While Repubs like Grand Theft Issa howled about “cover-ups” and “obvious terrorist attacks”, and bashed the testimony of real experts, they were ignoring the facts on the ground. And it is truly sick that our government never published the truth – it took a newspaper to tell us what really happened.

Almost as bad is that our “representatives” are still refusing to believe the facts, clinging instead to their partisan witch-hunts and idiotic conspiracy theories. Because it is evidently more important that they be seen as right than it is for our nation to be protected. Yes, “Republicans” still care only about their images and agendas, not about being honest with the American people.

Just like the Reagan-financed mujaheddin turned into anti-American terrorists, so too have some of the militias we armed more recently in Libya. And those Libyans, like the Afghans before them, turned against us after perceived slights against Islam. In this case, an American-made anti-Islam video that caused a riot in Egypt shortly before the Benghazi attacks was used by radical imams to whip these militiamen into a frenzy, after which they slaughtered a load of innocents in and near an American diplomatic post.

None of this absolves the Department of State for f***ing up the security arrangements at Bengahzi. Nor does it absolve the Congress for cutting funding for said Benghazi security. Indeed, the NYT report doesn’t absolve anybody, because everybody f***ed up: the Administration, the Congress, the “news” media, and the citizens of both countries.

Many of the lessons of Benghazi are still to be written. But here are a few, for starters:
Number A: Congresscritters with criminal pasts (like Darrell Issa) should NOT be considered credible sources of information;
Letter 2: Complicated situations rarely have simple, quick or easy explanations;
Thirdly: Our Infotainment media is almost useless: it took months upon months for a single source to finally publish a well-researched bit of actual journalism that gave the lie to almost all of the other “coverage” that had been crammed into our ears since the event. But then, when they all got punked by a comedian’s fake Twerking video, are we really suprised?

Here’s this writer’s main takeaway from Benghazi: don’t trust anyone with a political agenda, or any “news” source that just repeats politicians’ talking points; and don’t rush to judgment when the facts aren’t known yet. You know, things that we all used to know, and things we all used to do. Let’s remember Benghazi and honor those killed there by thinking for ourselves and demanding real facts, instead of just mindlessly believing the crap we get from glory-hound politicos and faux “news” sources.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Adam Kokesh has decided that threatening D.C. with thousands of loaded rifles was a bad idea after all, so he has cancelled the “protest”. Seems that local enforcement was determined to, you know, enforce the law.

Mr. Kokesh (spellcheck wanted to change this to “hashish”, which is weirdly appropriate) now wants his “followers” to march around state capitals on July 4th whilst carrying loaded rifles instead: he wants them to demand that the states dissolve the Federal government in what he calls ” the final American Revolution” .

Krazy Kokesh says if threatening lawmakers with loaded long guns does not do the trick, then an armed revolution “may be necessary”.

Mrmmmm, Kokey old buddy, if we really were so oppressed that we needed a revolution, do you think the big bad Fed’ral Gummint would be letting you out of prison so you could “organize” your little comic-opera putsch? Think about it.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Mr. Blunt and Cranky has this crazy theory, and it goes like this: the Founders were smart people who argued, haggled, debated, and In the end wrote a Constitution that said exactly what they meant. Nothing more, and nothing less. And if we don’t like something, we can bust our arses and amend it. (Yeah, a crazy notion,eh?)

But when people read the Constitution, they cherry-pick the bits and bobs they like and pretend the rest is not there, or that “the Founders were just kidding with that part”. That is not the act of a law-abiding citizen, folks. No matter if one is a Supreme Court justice or some regular schmuck, we have to respect the entire law. Including the Second Amendment.

People love the second part of the sentence, yes they do. But the first part, about the “well regulated militia”? Even Fat Tony and his posse at the S.C. tend to gloss over that bit.

The only reason to have battle-specific weapons is to fight a battle. And the only smart way to fight a battle is in an organized military group. For that matter, it is the only legal way to do it. So if you’re not in such an organization and you own and use military-style armaments, you are not in compliance with the law of the land.

Don’t like it? Pursue an amendment. But until you get one, just obey the friggin’ law.

Mr. B & C
