I’m back, and here’s an update

Those of you who were hoping I’ve died off or got sick of blogging, too bad! I’ve just been working hard at three jobs – you know… Millions of liberals rely on my taxes!

No, I’ve just been tired and busy, and having thyroid issues with no response from my doctor. So I’m off to find a new doctor who will actually call me back with blood test results.

I’ve written several essays for Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, and there’s a lot of cool stuff going on there.

I wrote a reply to the sniveling, drooling, perpetually outraged and ignorant Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, who claimed an NRA lobbyist should be fired for linking the disarmament of Jews in Nazi Germany to their subsequent mass slaughter and berating Jews who demand disarmament in the US for forgetting that inconvenient fact.

Jews should be the last people to advocate for government control of their means of self-defense and resistance. They should remember the disarmed Jews who were deprived not just of the right to defend themselves, but also their very lives in Nazi Germany. They should remember the abuses they suffered at the hands of the Soviets.

And they should oppose efforts to give the government control of their means of self-defense in the United States, instead of disparaging and belittling those who remind them of what they’ve chosen to ignore and trying to get them fired for stating an inconvenient truth that doesn’t jive with their political agenda.

Brian Judy should not apologize. He should stand strong on his convictions and remind Dvorchik and those like him that those who cannot or will not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

We, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership will never forget.

I wrote a profile of young shooting champ Shyanne Roberts after having a fun conversation with her and her dad Dan for nearly an hour. I consider this sweet, unassuming, determined child the future of gun rights in America, and I’m proud to know her and her family.

I’m still running a fundraiser for the Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART) in Northern Virginia. I’ve given them $250 so far to help them work to save homeless, abused, sick and neglected pets. I did it in Mac’s name, and the fundraiser is still up. If any of you can, please do donate and spread the word about the link, because LOVE. For those of you who have already donated, I cannot thank you enough or properly convey my gratitude without literally bursting into tears! Thank you!

Been actively engaging with gun grabbing lunatics on Twitter. And I do mean LUNATICS! If you don’t already, follow @JPFO_Liberty on Twitter. You will see unhinged crazy like you’ve never seen before. It’s hilarious. Trust me.

I can't count or read or put a coherent sentence together, but GUNZ BAD!!!

I dislike the Second Amendment almost as much as I dislike the First

This is how I debate. No logic. No reasoning. Just spew.

Because telling people who are politely asking you a question about an opinion requires telling them to fuck off. Stayin’ classy!

I’m unhinged, and there’s nothing you can do about it. GUN NUT!

Yeah… I love my job.

Oh, almost forgot. JPFO is running a lot of incredibly cool auctions. Until Tuesday, August 12, you have a shot at winning a unique, gorgeous piece of JPFO history: a Mossberg “Battle of Athens” shotgun once owned by the legendary Aaron Zelman, engraved and ready for you to bid on. As a bonus, the winner of the auction will receive Aaron’s own personal copy of the now out-of-print hardbound book on the Battle of Athens, autographed by author C. Stephen Byrum and dated 9/26/1994. Pretty cool, right?

There’s also a chance to win some autographed novels by passionate gun rights supporters and friends Michael Z. Williamson and Larry Correia, who generously donated their signed books for you to bid on.  I’ve often told Mike that I would kill him off in a few years and make a fortune selling his signed novels on Ebay. He doesn’t take me seriously… I don’t know why!

In other news, the EU finally got off its ass and sanctioned some major Russian banks and individuals who provide weapons and money to the Ukrainian separatist scumbags. In the aftermath of the Malaysian Airlines destruction and the impassioned speech by the Dutch Foreign Minister to the UN Security Council, it’s impossible to imagine that they would do nothing.

The president of the European Council, Herman van Rompuy, and the head of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, issued a joint statement describing the EU measures as a strong warning that “Illegal annexation of territory and deliberate destabilisation of a neighbouring sovereign country could not be accepted in 21st-century Europe.

“When the violence created spirals out of control and leads to the killing of almost 300 innocent civilians in their flight from the Netherlands to Malaysia, the situation requires urgent and determined response,” they said. “The European Union will fulfil its obligations to protect and ensure the security of its citizens. And the European Union will stand by its neighbours and partners.”

Following a meeting of the emergency Cobra council of ministers on Tuesday, Downing Street said the UK will push for even harsher sanctions against Russia than the ones agreed by the EU if the country does not change course.

Balls. They found them. Good.

As a result, the IMF has cut Russia’s economic growth forecast in 2014 from 1.3 percent to 0.2 percent. Putin doesn’t seem to have been swayed yet. What I’m wondering is how long will the Russians citizens tolerate Putin’s ego getting in the way of economic development before they start revolting full on. They’re certainly used to misery, but when their government promises them to focus on economic development and growth and winds up annexing part of a neighboring country and spending money to destabilize the eastern portion of said neighbor, you have to wonder just how long the nationalism will carry them.

Still love work, although I sometimes feel like a mom rather than a boss. From a conversation with one of my guys, whom I’ll call Pigpen:

Me: dude, I’m not a neat freak but seriously… wrappers, empty Starbucks cups, snot rags, socks…. can we clean up the pigpen?

Pigpen: Uh… OK… I didn’t think it was that bad, but I’ll clean it up.

Later

Pigpen: Look! I cleaned my desk up! (Opens overhead bin) Everything put away!

Bin stuffed full of napkins, random medications, cans of food…

Pigpen: The napkins are clean

Me: FACEPALM

About those sanctions

7 Comments

If you haven’t heard, the Treasury Department has released the latest round of sanctions against Russia for its activities in Ukraine, and some Second Amendment advocates are suspicious, to say the least.

Earlier today, the Department of Commerce announced new sanctions against Russian products and companies operating in the United States. Previous sanctions only tangentially impacted the import of cheap and reliable firearms from Russia into the United States, but now the Obama administration is specifically targeting the makers of Saiga rifles and shotguns, as well as other companies. 

There’s going to be a lot of information out there in the next few days, so let’s get a few facts out of the way.

This is not in any way, shape or form an assault on your Second Amendment rights. The sanctions impact companies, banks and entities that have been supporting Ukrainian separatists and destabilizing the region.

The U.S. moves to impose restrictions on the Russian state-controlled oil giant OAO Rosneft and other top firms are aimed at squeezing Russia’s already struggling economy and financial system. They followed weeks of U.S. threats that Russia would face repercussions unless it helped defuse the crisis in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russia separatists have been fighting the Ukrainian government for months.

The sanctions stop well short of crimping international business ties or blocking deals with entire sectors of the Russian economy.

The U.S. and Europe say separatists in Ukraine are getting significant support from Russia, an accusation Moscow has denied. 

And yes, the U.S. government has plenty of information confirming Russian involvement, funding and support of Ukrainian separatists. These entities include the Russian firearms company Kalashnikov, as well as Almaz-Antey, Uralvagonzavod, Novatek and several banks.

Is this an attempt to limit imports of firearms in the United States? Absolutely not.

This is an attempt to cut off companies and entities that are involved in destabilizing Ukraine off from the U.S. financial system and punish them for their actions.

This means that U.S. companies and individuals can do no further business with the sanctioned entities. No. Further. Business.

That means the AKs that you love so much that are already here in the stores are perfectly legal to buy and sell – UNLESS the store still owes money to Kalashnikov for an order. You can still buy, sell, trade, whatever your AK or your Izmash-produced firearms. What you are NOT  allowed to do is start new business with these companies.

Given the number of other companies that produce inexpensive AK-like and other firearms, this really shouldn’t affect your everyday right to keep and bear arms.

Is this an indefinite ban on imports of AKs and other inexpensive firearms? The sanctions will stay in place until the illegal activities cease. Some Second Amendment advocates claim once the government implements these sanctions, they will continue, because BAN! That’s not true. OFAC has de-listed a myriad of different companies and entities once they’re deemed to no longer be involved in illegal activities, or with a successful appeal.

This is all about Russia’s activities in Eastern Europe, and it has nothing to do with our right to keep and bear arms.

A list of frequently asked questions is here.

374. If I own a Kalashnikov product, is that product blocked by sanctions?  Am I able to resell a Kalashnikov product at a gun show or other secondary market? 

If a U.S. person is in possession of a Kalashnikov Concern product that was bought and fully paid for prior to the date of designation (i.e., no payment remains due to Kalashnikov Concern), then that product is not blocked and OFAC sanctions would not prohibit the U.S. person from keeping or selling the product in the secondary market, so long as Kalashnikov Concern has no interest in the transaction.  New transactions by U.S. persons with Kalashnikov Concern are prohibited, however, and any property in which Kalashnikov Concern has an interest is blocked pursuant to OFAC’s designation of Kalashnikov Concern on July 16, 2014.  If a U.S. person has an inventory of Kalashnikov Concern products in which Kalashnikov Concern has an interest (for example, the products are not fully paid for or are being sold on consignment), we advise that U.S. person to contact OFAC for further guidance on handling of the inventory.

There are other answers that may be of concern to gun owners as well. Please go read the release closely and understand it. Misinformation helps no one.

I know I’ve been away from here for a few days. Rob and I always seem to be busy, doing something, planning something, running somewhere… and when we’re not, I’m too tired to write, and generally can be found in bed napping. A lot.

I’ve been thinking lately that I need to find another blogger for this site. Someone who knows how to throw around invective – appropriately. Someone whose grammar and spelling I don’t have to double check (because if you can’t tell the difference between “they’re,” “their,” and “there,” you don’t need to be spouting your views anygoddamnwhere until you learn how to write, sparky!) Someone who knows how to fact check, and when they’re wrong, can post an appropriate, invective-filled apology for being a dipshit. Someone who is fun, and who loves to write. Someone who holds similar views to mine.

Now, it doesn’t have to be all politics, all the time. As a matter of fact, it can be pretty much any commentary on any issue, written with panache.

So basically, I need another me. (OK, so my ego got off its chain again a bit, but you know what I mean)

Any ideas?

Meanwhile, here’s what’s been going on in the world while I’ve been busy.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has decided that he hasn’t wreaked enough havoc in Ukraine, so he’s sending Russian tanks to Ukrainian separatists along with some MLRs. Now, these are T-64s that the Russian military forces no longer use, but given the fact that the Ukrainian separatists are basically some inbred hillbillies who light their farts on fire when they’re not destabilizing their region in hopes of getting closer to the Russians, who they believe will be giving them free shit, T-64s are a pretty good deal.

Meanwhile jihadist assholes have pretty much reversed a decade of progress in Iraq, and are currently using decapitated heads as soccer balls to celebrate the World Cup. We can haz drones?

Closer to home, Michael Bloomberg and his panty-shitting Mommies Demanding Action Attention, along with the astroturfy Everytown have put out a map, claiming that 74 school massacres have occurred here in the United States since Sandy Hook. The only problem is that this latest attempt to force the government to infringe on your rights is a big, fat lie. Even PolitiFact has kicked these shitbags in their shriveled raisins! Journalist Charles Johnson deserves all the kudos in the world for exposing these lies!

The traitor Bowe Bergdahl has returned home. There were no parades and no grandiose welcome home parties for this deserting piece of shit. Meanwhile, his daddy is apparently a creepy stalker guy. I guess the beard and the sympathy for jihadist scum wasn’t the only thing daddy dearest adopted while B was playing soccer and helping the Taliban. He also adopted a weird obsession with a pair of cute twins.

Ew.

The IRS has apparently, totally by accident misplaced two years’ worth of Lois Lerner emails. No, really. It was totally unintentional! They’re sorry. Ya know what? That’s not something I will ever believe, given the redundancy in the federal government when it comes to backing up your electronic communications. They’re there. Find them and throw that pernicious cunt in prison with the VA officials who have been sucking up taxpayer-funded bonuses via fraud and manslaughter by denying veterans health care!

Oh…

Happy 239th birthday, United States Army! You and I have been through good and bad together, but I love ya!

I have kept mostly quiet about Bowe Bergdahl other than to mention his homecoming. There are reasons for this that I won’t get into here.

However, given the numerous reporting about Bergdahl’s desertion and betrayal, I figured that instead of publishing a lengthy opinion piece, I would simply say my peace in a concise manner, and then defer to Anita Farries Kessler to give my feelings a voice.

So first, me.

As the mother of a United States Marine, I despise Bowe Bergdahl.

Yes, I said “DESPISE.” I do not exaggerate, and I am not emoting.

As I United States Army veteran, I want him tried and executed for treason.

As an American citizen whose family escaped tyranny – REAL tyranny, and not the type some sheltered, sniveling commie created because someone got sand in their vagina about some imagined slight – I find Bergdahl to be beyond contempt.

I am absolutely, 100 percent sure that Bowe Bergdahl is a traitor. A twisted, evil traitor.

The reason for his betrayal is irrelevant. He volunteered to serve in the Army after he was rejected by the French Foreign Legion. He tried to join the legion first. Don’t tell me he got squeamish. The legion, I’m fairly sure, would have been tougher. He walked off looking for the Taliban, and indicated he would abandon his unit if the mission wasn’t to his liking before the deployment began. He helped the enemy kill Americans, consciously and willingly. The bottom line is he’s a traitor. What he’s done is inexcusable.

Now, I cannot vouch for the authenticity of Mrs. Farries Kessler. I don’t know if she is who she says she is. I don’t know her from Adam. I do know, however, that she has voiced my thoughts, so I will leave a portion of them here. Read the rest if you so choose.

A soldier’s mom writes to Mrs. Bergdahl.

By Anita Farries Kessler:

My Open letter to Bowe Bergdahl’s mother……June 6, 2014 (Lengthy)

Dear Mrs. Bergdahl:

As the mother of an active duty soldier currently serving his second tour in Afghanistan, I felt compelled to send you my thoughts. You may have difficulty hearing this but I am compelled to say it. Please know that I have championed your son since the day the United States heard of his disappearance. Being an Army mom, my heart broke for you. It broke for you because at that time my son was serving in Ramadi, Iraq for Operation Iraqi Freedom at the height of the troop surge under George W. Bush. I could not begin to imagine the anguish you must have been going through knowing your son was in a foreign, hostile land and missing. The depth of that fright was nearly unfathomable and I prayed daily that this tragic incident would come to a happy ending. Now my son is on his SECOND deployment to Afghanistan for Operating Enduring Freedom. I worry every minute that he is over there. It is an all-consuming worry…the kind that only another mother would ever understand. We all know that in our eyes our soldiers are forever our babies.

I was so happy when the announcement first hit the news that your son was being brought home. I posted my joy on all my social networking sites and thought that this was just a glorious moment. Then we as Americans, along with the world watched and got to meet the parents of this soldier that was finally coming home. Mrs. Bergdahl…..from that moment you stood in the Rose Garden of our White House, I have felt heartsick, angry, and violated. I am writing you to tell you why I feel those things. You will not like much of what I have to say. Some of it may be hard to hear because as mothers we tend to have tunnel vision where our children are concerned. It needs to be said…not for you, but for ME. It needs to be said, not by a politician, not by another soldier, but by another military mother…..

Being a former Law Enforcement Officer I know something about pride. I know something about dignity. I know something about honor. Being the mother of a soldier, I know about sacrificing for something that is bigger than ourselves. I know, without hesitation, that I would give my life to protect my family, my country, and it’s citizen’s freedoms, along with our way of life in the greatest country in the world. America is the last stop for freedom. Should she cease to exist there is nowhere else to go that is free. These United States of America are the best of the best and this country is our homeland. Something this wonderful cannot be maintained without a price. Sometimes that price is hefty and burdensome. It takes strength to keep us alive and thriving. Strength requires tough decisions and follow-through if it is to stand on it’s own. We swear an oath to be a police officer. Your son swore an oath to become a United States soldier. Where I come from an oath means something. It is a VOW. It is a promise. It is not to be taken lightly and it is not to be broken. More importantly, it is and was not to be broken at the expense of those I stood shoulder-to-shoulder with while I was taking it. We vowed to follow and enforce the Constitution of the United States of America and Mrs. Bergdahl….so did your son. So did MY son.

Unfortunately, Mrs. Bergdahl, this is where we part company in the motherhood department. How sad for both of us as mothers that we view the world so differently and at such a high cost.

My son saw the same atrocities your son saw. My son is STILL seeing the ugliness of war. Yours is not. No…he trained the enemy to create the atrocities that MY son cleans up. Your son taught the enemy how to kill his American brothers and leave their bodies strewn on the streets and roads of Afghanistan. MY son stands his post and protects those there from people like YOUR son. He guards American soldiers and Afghani civilians alike. Your son disgraced his vow….his OATH. It meant NOTHING to your son.

My son lives his oath and still stands guard there TODAY (June 6th, 2014)…proudly, and with great vigilence. Your son was repulsed by the death of “innocent children”. My son nearly died because of a child. My son received a Purple Heart in Iraq when he and the Bradlee he was driving were blown up by a CHILD. A little boy set the trip wire for the IED that blew my son up. A CHILD set the trip wire that left my son ON FIRE inside a Bradlee vehicle with a jammed hatch pin. My son was only 19 years old at the time. How proud you must be that YOUR son trained the very people that make those IEDs and kill their own as quickly as they kill American soldiers. My son went on humanitarian missions to give the children soccer balls, candy, water, and toys. My son watched as one of his closest friends and brother in arms died as they were bending to help an Iraqi man who had been injured….That “innocent civilian” your son and husband praise, detonated himself as soon as they were close enough….with the type of bombs YOUR son was teaching the Taliban to make in Afghanistan at the time. MY son asks himself what could HE have done to save his buddies. He asks himself why is he here and they are not. He weeps for the brothers he has lost. Your son taught our enemy how to kill his own brothers that laid down their lives for YOUR SON. Are you beginning to see how you and I are both mothers but so very different Mrs. Bergdahl? Do you see how different you are from the mothers of the six brave brothers in arms who gave their lives looking for your son? They were American soldiers. They had mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, wives….FAMILY….just like Bowe does. Bowe gets to come home to his……those six soldiers never will. Walk along the Warrior Walk at Ft. Stewart, Georgia Mrs. Bergdahl. See the memorials….hundreds of them. See who your son BETRAYED….let it sink in. Hear the hush of the leaves as their souls breathe across the flags on the field there. Tell their families how bad the Army was for your son….tell the souls of those brave men and women how Bowe should be excused for what he has done. And tell me how I am supposed to understand a soldier with no honor. Sometimes we have to take a look at the hard, cold truth and it is painful. The hard, cold truth of the matter is that your son is a coward. A coward of the worst kind Mrs. Bergdahl. Please do not insult my motherhood by calling him a hero….in any sense of the word.

Try him as a traitor should be tried.

I will wait.

Gun-Free Zones Magnets For Armed Thugs

My latest for JPFO. Wonder if Mommies will take credit for the rash of robberies that occurred after restaurants posted signs forbidding firearms on their premises.

After all… they took credit for forcing the restaurants to do so in the first place.

Memorial Day Weekend Pet Peeves

23 Comments

Every year – right about this time – I have head splodeys at some of the things I see on the Internets. They’re not all Memorial Day-related, but this is the time when I think about these things more than most, because of how many of my fellow Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors and Marines lost their lives defending the very ideals I am grateful for daily.

I’m grateful for being in the United States. My parents brought me here when I was eight, knowing I wouldn’t have opportunities in the USSR as a Jew, and every year, as I was growing up, I knew I would join the military and serve my adopted country. I would watch military movies, practice saluting, and when I played by myself as a kid, I would pretend I was in the Army. I always considered service in the military of the country you love an honor, and I did exactly that after I finished college. I called the Army recruiter from a number  found in the Baltimore Sun, and said, “Hey, I just graduated Johns Hopkins with a degree in International Relations. Can you tell me what kind of opportunities are available for someone like me?”

There was this long silence on the phone, and finally the voice on the other end of the line asked, “Where are you located?”

I told him, and he said, “I’ll be right there.”

A few months later, I was shipping out to Basic Combat Training at Ft. Jackson.

Military service is an honor. A precious few people get that. The camaraderie, the dedication, the love for one’s country – not as an empty platitude, but with the full knowledge that what you have made a commitment to protect is a nation that codified the protection of the freedoms and opportunities no other could or would – the willingness to die for those principles… very few people make that kind of promise, backed with their lives.

So on this weekend, when so many of our friends – brothers and sisters – those happy few – have lost their lives, we remember them solemnly and reverently.  It’s not about us having barbecues and heading to the beach. It’s not about celebrating our own service. It’s about remembering, memorializing and honoring those who gave it all. I didn’t get into my own service to honor myself on this day, but to explain what military service means to us, especially to those who paid the ultimate price.

That’s why hearing “Happy Memorial Day” makes me and many other veterans want to issue a throat punch to the person who says it. I understand the intent is not to offend. I understand it is to offer respect for service. But Memorial Day is anything but happy. It’s solemn. It’s reverent. Sure, we celebrate their lives, but we also honor their sacrifices. Please remember that.

Memorial Day =/= Veterans Day.

Another pet peeve is this “privilege” garbage. This is one that has been brewing. This is one that I haven’t blogged about, because it’s so fucking stupid, it makes me want to slap a bitch.

This is a perfect example of the insanity that is "privilege."

This is a perfect example of the insanity that is “privilege.”

The “white privilege” crap implies that no white person has experienced struggle, that your personal experiences don’t matter, that you, as an individual, do not matter, because those who happen to have been born of the same race as you, and who might have been more fortunate in their lives, negate any struggle, any challenge, any achievement you may have had.

This is sick. It’s disgusting. It’s twisted, and it’s unacceptable.

My experiences as a Jew in the USSR – the abuse, the discrimination, the lack of opportunities – are my own. I came here with nothing. I knew no English.  I was terrified, because I was from a country most people in America considered to be the enemy.  I was terrified I would once again be beaten up in school, teased because of my funny last name, ridiculed, marginalized and discriminated against. I worked my ass off. I learned English within a year. I shunned my Russian/Ukrainian heritage, because I wanted – more than anything in the world – to be a normal (not different) American. I got into one of the best colleges in the world. I graduated. I served in the military. I started my career at less than minimum wage, and I worked my ass off to where I am today.

Who the hell are these self-anointed victims to tell me that my struggle doesn’t matter? Who the hell are they to tell others that the challenges they overcame were nothing, because others of the same race didn’t face those challenges? How the hell can they justify taking on the challenges of other minorities, merely by sporting the same color skin?

No, these are not the ideals I honor and protect. And I will never, EVER accept this crap as legitimate or ethical. These people are disgusting, and while they have every right to spew their ignorant garbage, guaranteed by every life dedicated to protecting that right, they will never be moral. They will always be twisted toads in my book – miserable mediocrities, who appropriate the struggle and achievement of others to prop their lack of achievement or simply demean others to make them seem more accomplished.

Swine!

Related to the “privilege” garbage is the claim of prevalent racism.

Does it exist? Sure. There are ignorant assholes all over the country.

Is it prevalent? No.

And when perpetual victims realize that there’s just not enough out there to support their claims that they’re a miserable FAIL because of racism in a meek effort to avoid responsibility for their own failures, they make it up.

Jenkins made national headlines in September when she posted Barnes’ receipt on Facebook, and later on YouTube, which had been left on a table she was serving. The $44.53 receipt, with a signature reading “Devin Barnes,” said “none” on the tip line and had the n-word — spelled out — on the total line.

“This is what I got as a tip last night … so happy to live in the proud southern states … God Bless America, land of the free and home of the low class racists of Tennessee,” Jenkins wrote on her Facebook page at the time.

Barnes denied writing the word and said he did not leave a tip because it was a takeout order. A handwriting expert he later hired also agreed with him.

Thomas Vastrick, a forensic document examiner with offices in Memphis and Orlando, Fla., said in his report that “no significant handwriting characteristics similarities” were found between the questioned “total” entry line and the handwriting samples provided by Barnes and his wife.

Barnes’ pastor and attorney, Richard Dugger, who filed the suit, said the incident has caused his client to receive “threats from all over the world,” and he believes Barnes has suffered “great harm and mental anguish.”

So they victimize innocent others, because they’re white, to bring attention to a problem that is in no way status quo in this country, because of their own miserable lot in life. Apparently being a waitress didn’t pay well enough. She had to make this shit up, play victim, and get sympathy “tips” from kind strangers all over the country.

Oh, and while we’re on the subject of pet peeves, this whole open carry thing… I’m not going to get too much into it, as that’s all I’ve been talking about this past week. But I will say this: the Second Amendment protects our right to keep and bear arms – inside, outside, wherever. But that doesn’t relieve you of the right to act like a responsible, mature human being. Exercise your rights responsibly. A lot of people died to defend them.

Enjoy the weekend and remember what you are commemorating here.
