Norway: making a huge mistake

Norwegian Police ArmedNorway is about to make a massive mistake.

It is committed to disarming its civilian police officers.

From the UKIndependent.com:

This European country is about to disarm all its police

by Staff

Police in Norway will no longer carry guns.

The country has announced that the armament of its police officers, which began in 2014, will cease “as soon as possible” after it was deemed no longer necessary.

Plans to stop issuing officers with guns were announced last November but were postponed after the terror attacks in Paris.

Allow me to interject briefly for a moment.  This is a perfect example of a GOWP mindset and belief system.  The whole 1800s disproven and doddering “if we disarm they’ll disarm” thingie.  Disarming eliminates the aggro.  Brilliant idea.

Except that apparently you Brits and Norwegians failed to read your own article.  You know, the part above where it says “Plans to stop issuing officers with guns were announced last November but were postponed after the terror attacks in Paris.

“Postponed after the terror attacks in Paris.”

Here in Yankdom, that’s called a “clue.”

As in: “hey, have you ever considered that might occur again?”  Further, ever thought it may happen in, say, NORWAY?

Nah.

Because, remember, only barbaric Western nations like the US carry firearms.  You believe we are a total gun culture, just as we believe you are a total Socialist culture.  Except that, well, yes, you are a total Socialist culture.  More on that in later posts.

Okay, alright.  Got me.  Yamamoto was correct.

But look at yourselves.  All dressed up butch-like in your glossy black leather and nylon crotch straps, brandishing Sigs with your black and deadly machine pistols and automatic weapons.  The only difference is that US weapons are a little longer and we don’t sling them over our chests customarily.  We normally lock them in our cars, stacked next to our shotguns, between the seats.  (We keep the flamethrowers, RPGs and tactical nukes in the trunk where they can’t be seen.)

I do like the checkerboard thingie, and your patch.  Nice patch.

Oh.  And most of us male US cops aren’t allowed to grow beards unless we’re undercover.  Just saying.

Police have announced once again that the armament will cease, with the Police Directorate saying that “there are no longer grounds to continue”.

Oh really?

Merkel Killed GermanyApparently you guys don’t read your own press, or the press in Germany and Sweden and the rest of Europe.  Let’s look at Europe.  Let’s look at the location of Germany — which Angela Merkel has already doomed — in relation to Norway.

EUROPEAN MAPExamine Norway in relation to the rest of Europe and the other countries where Muslim “refugees” — mostly war-age young males — are flooding.  The Baltic and North Seas may not quite be the total insulatory factor you’re hoping for.

SYRIAN HORDES of REFUGEESParticularly considering the massive issues Germany is having with young Muslim males, as well as Sweden and — tada!Norway.

Perhaps you should watch some of the buttery goodness provided by Muslim males in Germany via Islam, the religion of peace and understanding.

Perhaps you need to listen to this, from a nurse in Bavaria, Deutschland, as read on US radio.

Just at the time you should be arming yourselves, you are disarming.  Europeans are already wishing they had a Second Amendment.

Boy, are you guys in for a rude awakening in your near future.

Norwegian Police Disarmed

 

El Chapo had a “Fast & Furious” firearm in hideout

El Chapo Victims

Some of El Chapo’s terrible handiwork in Mexico. F&F firearms were used to kill El Chapo’s enemies and innocents alike.

And not just “any” firearm; oh no.

FAST AND FURIOUS GraphicYou remember Holder’s “Fast & Furious” debacle, right?  The one where US Attorney General Eric Holder’s BATFE thought it would be a splendid idea to allow weapons to cross into Mexico under its “supervision” as Operation Gunrunner, then later as Operation Fast and Furious.  More than 2,000 guns were sold to suspected criminals thought to be linked to the Sinaloa drug cartel and other Mexican criminal organizations in the two years of the operation under the Obama presidency.  Shock of shocks, there were criminals involved.  So in essence the BATFE knowingly allowed US weapons to be “walked” into Mexico.  BATFE agents lost track of 1,400 of the 2,000 guns sold.

On Dec. 14, 2010, US Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was killed during a gunfight. It was discovered that weapons in the shootout stemmed from the Fast and Furious operation.  A BATFE scheme, therefore, was directly responsible for the death of an American law enforcement officer.

USBP Agent Brian TerryLet us also not forget that documents about F&F were handed over to Representative Darrell Issa’s House Oversight Committee in November of 2014 (four years after the murder of Agent Terry) only after the White House tried to use executive privilege in an attempt to halt emails related to the case, and contempt of Congress charges against Attorney General Eric Holder in 2012,  On June 28th of 2012, AG Holder was in fact held in contempt of Congress — the first time ever for a US presidential cabinet member.

Eric Holder Finger Pointing Kiss My AssHere’s something else people conveniently forget: Emails released to Judicial Watch, a group that filed suit to obtain legal documents from the Justice Department, showed Holder’s direct involvement with officials throughout the Justice Department and the ATF in how to handle congressional inquiries and ways to format talking points about Fast and Furious.

In other words, how to obfuscate and minimize.

Yesterday, from FoxNews.com:

‘Fast & Furious’ rifle capable of taking down helicopter found in ‘El Chapo’ cache

by William La Jeunesse

A.50-caliber rifle found at Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s hideout in Mexico was funneled through the gun-smuggling investigation known as Fast and Furious, sources confirmed Tuesday to Fox News.

When agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives checked serial numbers of the eight weapons found in his possession, they found one of the two .50-caliber weapons traced back to the ATF program, sources said.

Barrett M82 Sniper RifleYou cannot convince me that Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast & Furious weren’t crafted by the Obama administration as an excuse to enact more gun control regulations across the board.  CBS had the records to indicate so.

The NRA’s Wayne LaPierre nailed the issue when he said:

We wouldn’t know about this at all if [Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry] had not been killed and some of the good, honest, decent federal agents down the line had enough of the stench coming out of Washington and started to use the Whistleblower Act to go public and call the Justice Department out on this whole rotten, stinking scheme.

It’s clear the Obama administration and Eric Holder had their anti-gun agendas and did their best to stomp the whistleblowers and stifle the investigation.

Otherwise thousands of guns would still be going over the border into the Mexican drug cartels and the President and the Attorney General and the Secretary of State would all be running around going, ’90 percent of the guns come from America’ in an attempt to seek political advantage and in an attempt to enact more gun control laws on honest American citizens and use this whole issue politically against the Second Amendment of the United States.

Precisely sir.  One of the major reasons I decided to join the NRA recently.  I am tired of Demorats and Leftists trampling on America’s foundational documents.

Good to know the fuckups of Obama and Holder are still the gifts that keep on giving.  How many people did that rifle take out at over 1,000 yards?

Obama: who needs Article 1 anyway?

Obama Crime Spree PresidencyI’ll just do it all my own self, Mr Obama says.  I shall rule from on high via executive fiat.

Marco Rubio says, “Barack Obama is obsessed with undermining the Second USAmendment.”

Let’s watch Mr Obama’s condescending and tearful lecture to law-abiding Americans, shall we?

Obama wants:

  Licensing requirements for smaller-scale gun sellers.
The hiring of an additional 230 FBI employees to process background checks 24/7
Provisions enabling states to share mental health information
Dollars for research into “gun safety technology.”  I.E., “smart guns”

The truth is that currently 38 states submit less than 80% of their felony convictions into the background check system.  DC won’t even repair the current system.  Now they want to expand it.  Nonsense.  All you have to do is ENFORCE the federal gun laws currently on the books.

This isn’t so much about the “gun control” EO as it is about Mr Obama’s continuing disregard for the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Obama American CRAZIESFor the ignorant amongst us — that would include you, Millennials — here is what Article 1 of the US Constitution says.  In a nutshell.

Article 1 of the U.S. Constitution gives Congress its powers and limits. Congress is the legislative branch of the government, meaning they are the ones to make laws for the United States of America. The article also creates the two sections of Congress, which is called a bicameral legislature.

Meaning: Congress creates laws, not the president.

But here’s the truth: federal firearms convictions under Obama have fallen 15.5% in the past five years, and 34.8% in the past ten years.  Yes, that IS under Mr Obama’s rule.  Those stats are from the Syracuse University TRAC Project.

Meaning: again Mr Obama is two-faced, duplicitous and a LIAR.  He could direct his AGs to go after gun crime tenaciously BUT — here is the further truth — the suspects would be predominantly BLACK and from large urban areas like Detroit, DC, Chicago, Atlanta.  Mr Obama certainly cannot have that.

Sure.  Violent felons and gang members buy all their guns online and in gun stores and at gun shows.  There’s nothing more satisfying to a dealer with an FFL than selling an AK-47 to a tatted-up MS-13 gang member or a frothing nutcase holding a stuffed toy who walks up to their counter.

A further lie: yes, you can purchase a firearm online.  But to whom does it go and where?  Oh yes.  Your local dealer who has an FFL and must then run a background check before physically handing the gun over to you.

Sometimes the FBI and the DOJ actually miss those few felons who attempt to purchase handguns.  That’s not a local problem, that’s a federal problem.  As in: just enforce what’s on the books with more efficiency.

Obama Gun Sales Soar 1-5-2016Plus: now you’re a single mother.  You suffer from post-partum depression.  You want a firearm for protection because your apartment complex is rife with drug dealers and you want to protect your child.  Is your doctor now mandated to contact the FBI?  Under this EO your doctor is mandated to go around HIPAA privacy laws to rat you out.  But who truly is “fit to own a firearm”?  No one in the federal government can answer that question.

Second Amendment Gun NUTSIdeology doesn’t just stop at the Spite House.  It can surely exist in your doctors office.  What will you say?  What can you say?

Further you cannot wrap suicide numbers in with the homicide numbers in terms of “gun violence.”  But of course Mr Obama does that very same thing.  The vast majority of gun deaths stem from suicide.

Gun Crime STATISTICSBackground checks will not solve the issue of gun suicide.  Those who are intent on suicide will simply transition from guns to rocks to pills to knives to state-sponsored death.

Will you “commit” anyone who mentions depression, anxiety, who has talked about giving up?  How will that affect civil liberties?

AGAIN, Republicans miss a golden opportunity to state the OBVIOUS: Mr Obama couldn’t care less about our foundational documents and, instead, issues laws by imperial fiat, completely bypassing an entire THIRD branch of government.

And if you don’t know the three branches of government, then you are a massive part of the problem in America.

Because you are incompetent.

Europe rethinks guns

Gun Control European StyleThis is the sound of BZ slapping his forehead.

Gosh.  I wonder why?

From TheNewAmerican.com:

In Response to Massive Influx of Refugees, Europeans Seek More Guns

by Warren Mass

As The New American has reported in multiple articles, European nations are frantically trying to accommodate the thousands of immigrants fleeing to Europe from the ongoing civil war in Syria. This massive influx, which has been described as an “invasion,” has prompted many Europeans to arm themselves, fearful that the migrants will cause a rise in violent crime, according to a report published by WorldNetDaily (WND) on October 26.

However, notes the report, citing Czech and Austrian sources, obtaining a firearm in Europe can be difficult to nearly impossible, depending on gun laws in each individual country. A Czech television reporter spoke mostly about the situation in neighboring Austria, which is in the main path of migrants traveling from Greece to their most popular destination — Germany. 

I’m sorry, but I have to readily admit that my first thought was: oh boo-hoo.  Europeans are rethinking gun control?  A tad late perhaps?

“I’m disarmed.  How do I keep me and my family safe, considering my ______ government appears to be disinterested in defending me from the invading Muslim hordes?”

And yes, they are invading Muslim hordes.  They’re certainly not Buddhist hordes.  You’re stewing, Europe, in the Leftist mess you created.  You can’t get guns now that you actually need them to defend your families?

Live with it.

The Czech reporter stated that long guns such as shotguns and rifles have been selling out in Austria, and those who haven’t already purchased one may not have an opportunity to obtain one for some time. “If anyone wants to buy a long gun in Austria right now, too bad for them,” noted the Czech newscaster. “All of them are currently sold out.”

Funny thing is, guns are selling like hotcakes in the United States as well this year — the exact opposite intention of the Obama Administration.  Even better, gun and ammunition purchases have “skyrocketed” in Fornicalia — particularly since Fornicalia Lt Governmor Gavin Newsom has said he’s going to put a measure on the ballot to enact even stricter gun regulations, also mandating background checks before you can purchase a single box of ammunition.

Great idea!  Let’s make criminals out of citizens and leave the real criminals themselves entirely unaffected — by letting them out of jails and prisons, minimizing property crimes (by increasing the value of a stolen item before the crime constitutes a felony) and sending drug users and dealers to rehab instead of putting them in jail.  AB 109, “realignment,” is already working like a charm (not), as is Proposition 47.  Meaning: the criminals are doing very well in Fornicalia, and property crimes are likewise blossoming.  Heroin users aren’t stupid, after all, just drugged.  They know they can steal more items before they’re charged with a felony and actually have to enter the system.

(As an aside: the effect of AB109In Los Angeles, because of the court and jail conditions associated with overcrowding, AB 109 inmates were serving anywhere from 20 percent of their sentence — after half-time was deducted. For the most serious and repeat offenders the percentage of time served peaked at around 40 percent of a sentence for the most serious offenses.  The results of both AB 109 and Prop 47?  The outcome “is criminals serving very short sentences and threatening public safety.”)

But wait until you read this:

I just returned from a gun rights meeting in Belgium, and I can attest that all over Europe people now want the means to defend themselves. Self-defense is no longer a dirty word. In countries like Austria, where it is still legal to own a firearm, gun sales are at record levels. I can tell you first-hand that people in Europe now wish they had a Second Amendment.

Yes, let’s repeat that last sentence for the brain-addled and ill-educated Leftists amongst us here (I know you’re there, I get your comments and emails):

“I can tell you first-hand that people in Europe now wish they had a Second Amendment.”

Socialists and Euro-Cheesers wishing for their own Second Amendment?

Even more astonishing:

Going back to the fears generated among Europeans by the large numbers of refugees from the Middle East, it appears that such fears are well grounded. The U.K.’s Daily Mail reported last May: “Islamic State terrorists who are hell-bent on committing atrocities in Britain are being smuggled into Europe by posing as refugees trying to cross the Mediterranean.”

Those “fears are well grounded.”  Muslim terrorists posing as “refugees.”  Oh no!  Muslims wouldn’t stoop to something as bad as that, would they?  Could they?

Listen up, American Leftists:

The Daily Mail cited as its source a Libyan security advisor, Abdul Basit Haroun, who used to live in Britain. Haroun said during a BBC Radio 5 Live Investigates program: 

[Terrorists] use the boats for their people who they want to send to Europe as the European police don’t know who is from IS and who is a normal refugee. The boat owners have a list of who to take but some people come suddenly and they’re told, “Take them with you.”…

They are for IS — 100 per cent.

Which is why I say again and continue to say: keep Syrian and all other Muslim “refugees” out of the United States of America.  ISIS has already infiltrated via our southern border.  There are ISIS elements present in the US.  My federal LE sources tell me so.

I say: let Europe, who so eschewed firearms and pointed their fingers at US “gun nuts,” stew in the juices of their own making and lack of foresight.

A “mass stabbing” in Yolo County, Fornicalia, injured six persons seriously this past Saturday, the 17th.

From KCRA.com:

6 birthday party guests hurt in Yolo County mass stabbing

by Maneeza Iqbal

MADISON, Calif. (KCRA) —Six people were stabbed during a girl’s birthday party Saturday night in Madison, a town 11 miles west of Woodland, the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office.

The band member said two of his band mates were stabbed. A woman who tried to stop the suspect was also hurt. Other witnesses said two of the six victims were airlifted to a hospital.

A machete attack in Stockton then occurred on Sunday the 18th, involving Mel and Big Block Loc, from the StocktonRecord.com:

Man attacked with machetes

STOCKTON — Two men armed with machetes confronted a man just south of downtown Sunday concerning the theft of a bicycle. They assaulted the man, leaving him with a large cut on his head, police reported.

The noon incident occurred in the first block of West Scotts Avenue near South Commerce Street. Police reported the 28-year-old victim was treated at an area hospital for a non-life-threatening wound on his head.

His assailants were both described as men in their 30s. One had dreadlocks and is known as “Mel.” The other suspect is known as “Big Block Loc,” according to police.

There was a second stabbing in Stockton, on Sunday the 18th.  From the StocktonRecord.com:

Man stabbed in neck

STOCKTON — During an early morning altercation Sunday in north Stockton, a 25-year-old man was stabbed in the neck and his attacker was arrested, police reported.

The incident occurred about 5:34 a.m. in the 4400 block of Cotton Court, a short street just north of the Calaveras River off East Bianchi Road east of North El Dorado Street.

The victim was transported to an area hospital for treatment of a non-life-threatening stab wound, according to police.

Officers arrested Gregorio Cisneros, 21, on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, according to a report.

A fourth deadly stabbing occurred in the city of Modesto, on Sunday morning the 18th.  Again, from KCRA.com:

Suspect arrested in fatal Modesto car wash stabbing

by Maneeza Iqbal

MODESTO, Calif. (KCRA) —A man died after he was stabbed Sunday morning at a Modesto car wash, police said.

The 39-year-old man was stabbed multiple times around 11:45 a.m. at the business on Yosemite Boulevard, near Rosina Avenue. Police said the man was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died. No other information about the victim was released.

These four separate incidents involving edged weapons in northern Fornicalia, all within a 60-mile radius of Sacramento — the Belly of the Bill Beast — occurred in the span of a single weekend; just two days.  That’s just one 60-mile-radius within roughly one county.  There are 58 counties in Fornicalia.  Multiply this edged weapon activity times 50 states.  Per day.  There are 365 days in a year.  You get the point.  (Sorry.  Couldn’t help that.)

People shouldn’t have to worry about knife attacks.  Clearly the persons using knives against others in violence are mental defectives or abject criminals.

One thing we do know, however, is that there won’t be a state or federal hue and cry to abolish knives or edged weapons, despite the statistics involved.

For example, according to crime statistics from the FBI, knives are consistently used to kill people far more often than rifles are used. Five times as many murders were committed with knives than were committed with rifles last year.  But again, people screaming for knives to be banned over rifles?  Anyone?  Bueller?

Murder rates before and after gun bans?  Guess what?  The rates don’t plummet.  Ask the residents of Baltimore, DC, Detroit, Chicago and even the UK.

Some other interesting statistics.

Recently, we’ve all heard that both Obama and Hillary Clinton point to Australia with regard to outright gun confiscation — something they think might be a great idea for the United States despite that pesky and confounding Second Amendment.  They both fail to learn from history.  I call that Historical Alzheimers.

In Australia, it turned out that 640,381 personal firearms were destroyed by the government, costing taxpayers $500 million dollars.

That first year, homicides went up 3.2%.  Armed robberies went up 44%.  In Victoria, homicides utilizing firearms went up 300%.

But here’s the rub, Leftists.  Guess who failed to turn in their guns?  Why yes, morons, the criminals.  That’s their job.  Check the job description.  Then check the definition of the word “criminal.”

I know I should be, but I’m not yet a member of the NRA.  Looks like I’ll be joining this week.  And here’s another odd rub: gun sales the past few months have been skyrocketing.  More weapons in the hands of — gulp! — people who actually qualified for the purchase of their weapons.  Just like the shooter in Roseburg.  Every purchase was lawful and conformed to all regulations.  There’s only one final regulation left.  You know which one.  The ultimate regulation.  I’m sure the Australians were thinking the same thing: “it can’t happen here.”

Marcus Luttreall — the SEAL who wrote the book Lone Survivor, nails my feelings precisely.  I surrender my firearms to no one, man or beast.  And as an Oathkeeper, I have sworn to uphold the US Constitution and our Bill of Rights against all enemies, foreign or domestic.  No one said my oath stopped when I retired after 41 years in law enforcement.

As of last year, there was a 73% opposition to a ban on handguns.  63% of persons said that a home was safer with a firearm present in the home.

This is another Leftist move — and make no mistake, the ultimate wet dream of Leftists is gun confiscation.

I am The Realist.  And make no mistake, the reality is that the phrase “molon labe” has real meaning for me.

Another reason that this government and the UN are in the process of attempting to remove out First Amendment rights — our very right to communicate.  Communication that provides opposition to the defeatist, unsound, illusory, unrealistic, naive and just plain stupid goals of Leftists and this current administration.
