Bernie Sanders to go Independent?

Hillary Clinton and Sanders-AThe Demorats are worried.

For obvious server-like reasons.

Bernie Sanders is tending to attract more persons to his rallies than is Hillary Rodham Clinton, despite the fact that she has, at this point, a greater purse.

Yes, there may be trouble in River City, with a capital T and that rhymes with P and that stands for Fool.  Okay; maybe that doesn’t completely rhyme.

But it still portends trouble.

Just as Trump is beginning to seriously worry persons in the Old Staid GOP — the RINO RINO Being Walked by Michalle ObamaElement if you will — Bernie Sanders is beginning to worry the DNC.  Because if there’s one thing that Sanders can’t stand, it’s corporatists like Hillary Rodham Clinton, no matter what she says.  Her son-in-law, for example, Marc Mezvinsky, is a hedge fund manager for Eaglevale Partners (which lost its investors 48% last year; that’s called a “massive hedge fund loss”), and he and Chelsea live in a $10.5 million dollar condo in Manhattan.  Paid for by — wait for it — hedge fund profits and the Clinton Foundation.

Sanders makes no bones about his disdain for a capitalistic society, and his equal disdain for all things corporate.

That said, the Demorats profit, truly, more from corporate donations than do Republicans, in a greater dollar amount.  Cut off those donations, as Sanders wants to do, and —

I’m certain you can see the problem.

Bernie Sanders sees the problem as well.

That’s why the Sanders world is quietly abuzz — by those who buzz — about his consideration for going Independent.  He not only doesn’t want to be beholden to corporate interests and payback, he wants to — gulp! — curtail those things altogether, ideally.

[Cue the breast-beating, wailing, tears, floor-stomping by Demorats.]

Not precisely what you wanted to hear or read, Demorats, but there it is.  Now publicly put out into the ether that is the internet.

Bernie Sanders is waiting to see if the Demorats may turn their ship another direction, and just how well — ala Trump — he is treated or mistreated by them.

My my my, how the plot thickens.

And isn’t that just a fine kettle of fish?

Kettle of Fish

Obama: eliminating 5.56 mm rounds

M885 Round, 5.56 mm (.223)In a naked attempt to eliminate the most common American long gun extant: the AR-15 rifle chambered in 5.56 mm caliber.

And let there be no mistake.

Why are all of these issues and topics being pushed and steamrollered all at once?

I submit: easy.  Because the current Obama Administration and what the Leftists believe will be the next Clinton Administration are in the process of, yes, fundamentally transforming this nation into what they believe will be, finally, the new global paradigm of Socialism.

Each Socialist regime believes that it can “do” Socialism much better than their predecessor — if only they were given the opportunity.  Never mind that Socialism has never worked for any country at any time in the entire history of this planet.

Obama and fellow Leftist Demorats believe they can “do” Socialism better than anyone else — despite the fact that Socialism isn’t working for Europe.

Question: what do you call doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results?

Of course you know that answer.

From the WashingtonExaminer.com:

Obama to ban bullets by executive action, threatens top-selling AR-15 rifle

by Paul Bedard

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56 mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

The question is: will Congress do it?  And will they have the cojones to actually move against the president’s imperial actions via BATFE?

“The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used “ammunition through regulation,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, the group’s policy and lobby shop. “The NRA and our tens of millions of supporters across the country will fight to stop President Obama’s latest attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.”

At issue is so-called “armor-piercing” ammunition, an exemption for those bullets mostly used for sport by AR-15 owners, and the recent popularity of pistol-style ARs that use the ammo.

This AP ammunition, because it was (past tense) so plentiful, is popular with American shooters.  You’ll notice, Leftists, per the top photo, these are not “dum-dum” or “hollow point” rounds.

The inexpensive 5.56 M885 ammo, commonly called green tips, have been exempt for years, as have higher-caliber ammunition that also easily pierces the type of soft armor worn by police, because it’s mostly used by target shooters, not criminals. The agency proposes to reclassify it as armor-piercing and not exempt.

Please read the rest of the article here.

This is, frankly, an excuse for the proverbial “foot-in-the-door” trick.  The goal?  To chip away at the Second Amendment in the US Bill of Rights.

Why the push to regulate the internet?  Why the push to eliminate firearms?

It’s all about control and the elimination of pushback, opposition to policies that people believe to be Socialist in nature.  Eliminate the Second Amendment and you can readily eliminate the First Amendment.

I’m a cop; at least for a few more months until I retire.  And there isn’t a rifle round that already won’t go through my vest, from .223 to .308 and most all points in between.  How about some graphics?

GUN CONTROL Gun StatsObama knows full well: he who controls the ammunition, in truth, controls the firearm.

If you can’t eliminate the firearms, eliminate their ability to shoot.

What Socialism does for you:

Francois Hollande SocialistIt makes you vote with your feet.

From the UKIndependent.com:

French say au revoir to France: Over two million French people now live abroad, and most are crossing the channel and heading to London

by Ann Penketh

The land of 400 cheeses, the birthplace of Molière and Coco Chanel, is facing an unprecedented exodus. Up to 2.5 million French people now live abroad, and more are bidding “au revoir” each year.

A French parliamentary commission of inquiry is due to publish its report on emigration on Tuesday, but Le Figaro reported yesterday that because of a political dispute among its members over the reasons for the exodus, a “counter-report” by the opposition right-wing is to be released as an annex.

Centre-right deputies are convinced that the people who are the “lifeblood” of France are leaving because of “the impression that it’s impossible to succeed”, said Luc Chatel, secretary general of the UMP, who chaired the commission.

“Impossible to succeed”?  How odd; I thought that Francois Hollande, as an avowed Socialist and a longtime leader of the Socialist Party, was going to solve everything through Socialism?

There is “an anti-work mentality, absurd fiscal pressure, a lack of promotion prospects, and the burden of debt hanging over future generations,” he told Le Figaro. However, the report’s author Yann Galut, a Socialist deputy, said the UMP was unhappy because it had been unable to prove that a “massive exile” had taken place since the election of President François Hollande in 2012.

Let’s see; what’s the French “work week” again?  Oh, that’s right: 35 hours.  And what is the vacation policy?  That’s right:

5 weeks (30 days with Saturdays, but not Sundays counted as holidays) plus up to 22 days of RTT (Réduction du Temps de Travail, English: Reduction of Working Time) for the employees that choose to work more than 35 hours per week – the “limit” is 39 per week, further additional hours are compensated in almost all the cases by money and not by additional leave hours. Bonus days off are given to people who take a part of their annual leave outside summer (3 days grant 1 bonus day off, 6 days grant 2 bonus days off). Combining all these rules, in a few public offices and in a few companies like Orange, the resulting total, for certain employees, might be of 9.5 paid vacation weeks (5 weeks of vacation + 4 weeks of RTT + 0.5 week of bonus days off). Furthermore, there are 11 public holidays (that, though, in many companies are not paid days off, with the exception of the 1st of May, for which a remuneration is compulsory).[8][12][14]

Even with that, Hollande thought it too constrictive.

What is certain is the steady rise in the number of emigrants across all sections of society, from young people looking for jobs to entrepreneurs to pensioners.

According to a French Foreign Ministry report published at the end of last month, the top five destinations are the UK, Switzerland, the US, Belgium and Germany. The French consulate in London has estimated that up to 400,000 French nationals live in the capital, a number equal to the population of France’s sixth largest city.

You mean that persons in France don’t care for nightly hot-and-cold running carbeques?

The Crux of the Biscuit:

“Young people feel stuck, and they want interesting jobs. Businessmen say the labour code is complex and they’re taxed even before they start working. Pensioners can also pay less tax abroad,” she says.

It is also almost impossible to fire an employee in France.  But why work when Hollande’s State will take care of you? — at great taxpayer expense, I should care to add.

Further: There are around 1.4 million companies in France without employees. Why is that?

But again, the French government is throwing the word “patriotic” around like the current Obola government, as in: it’s “patriotic” to pay more taxes and abide by more regulations.

Frankly, Hollande and Obola don’t know the meaning of the word “patriotic.”
