Virginia Democrats – Disgraceful, Corrupt, Unscrupulous Bottom Feeders


I don’t normally write about Virginia politics. I’d rather let the husband do that, since he’s much better versed than I am in the state political game. I’m actually pretty non-partisan, and my political views are generally libertarian in nature. Just leave me alone to live my life, and I’m happy.

That said, when it comes to Second Amendment rights, I’m a non-compromising purist. When it comes to property rights, there is no middle ground. And when I see local Democrats playing dirty games with people’s livelihoods and taking a crap on the Second Amendment in an effort to foment discord and controversy in time for elections, I can’t NOT say something.

JB Gates, the owner of NoVA Firearms originally intended to open a store in Arlington County, but thanks to bullying, manufactured outrage, and outright abuse by sniveling hoplophobes in the area – the same morally corrupt band of gun-grabbing invertebrates who are now politicizing Mr. Gates’ livelihood in order to gain election traction – the landlord of the store’s original location canceled the lease and forced Gates to move elsewhere.

That elsewhere was McLean, VA – near Franklin Sherman Elementary School.

I see evil guns, and I feel a moisture in my frilly panties.As expected, the panty shitters in McLean shat their collective panties. OH, JUST THINK OF THE CHILDREN! A GUN STORE NEAR A SCHOOL! CHILDREN!

Remember, this is a peaceful business, legitimate commerce, and a product that’s obviously in demand. Additionally, there was absolutely nothing the Fairfax County Democrats could do about the store’s location, but that didn’t stop them from hectoring the peaceable, legitimate business owner and working to destroy his livelihood. My disgraceful, unresponsive, snotty bitch of a State Senator Barbara Favola (Yeah, we tried – as her constituents – to see and talk to her about gun rights in Virginia on several Lobby Days, but she wouldn’t even give us the time of day; quite the representative, that one) who was instrumental in bullying the landlord into cancelling the store’s lease in Arlington, gave the crooked, praetorian dick weasels in Fairfax some sage advice about how to destroy Mr. Gates’ business, according to emails obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by Virginia blog Bearing Drift.

The emails show beyond a shadow of a doubt that Favola and her cohorts conspired to harass and bully Mr. Gates, while that shriveled colostomy bag John Foust (D-ickhead) fucked with Mr. Gates’ livelihood in order to get re-elected.

Delegate Kathleen Murphy, McLean Democrat, wrote an email to state Sen. Barbara Favola, Arlington Democrat, seeking help in shutting down the gun store. Ms. Favola was instrumental in organizing opposition to Mr. Gates’ shop in Arlington.

“Basically, we convinced the land owner that his business tenants would lose business,” Ms. Favola told Ms. Murphy in a reply. “In other words, moving a gun shop to a small cluster of shops in the middle of a neighborhood was bad for business.

“The argument has to be about supporting small businesses,” Ms. Favola wrote in her email. “The ‘we’ versus ‘they’ argument is winnable with the NRA.”

Ms. Murphy forwarded that email Sept. 25 to other Democrats in her district, including Fairfax County Supervisor John Foust, who is up for re-election Tuesday, saying, “Lets do it.”

Fairfax County Supervisor John Foust

Fairfax County Supervisor John Foust

How abhorrently perfidious. A bunch of petty tyrants plotting to destroy the livelihood of one of their constituents for purely political purposes – to re-elect this… loathsome, cowardly, dishonest creature with a bad toupee.

Foust knew the store was there legally. He knew it was in compliance with the law before it opened, according to Bearing Drift, but he chose to politicize the issue in an effort to drive up voter turnout in an off-year election while smearing his opponent with false attacks.

And what were those attacks? She apparently supports the gun store! *GASP!*

What, exactly, is wrong with a perfectly legal business that sells a constitutionally-protected product being located next to a school, I’ll never know. The writers at Bearing Drift and Foust’s opponent Jennifer Chronis are acting as if Mr. Gates has done something wrong! Oh, he has to “work with” the McLean Citizens Association, who are apparently soiling themselves at the thought of a legitimate business that has followed all the laws and regulations selling a perfectly legal product – after conducting background checks, as required by law – to their fellow citizens wishing to exercise their Second Amendment rights?

Really, Bearing Drift? “Parents who oppose the store’s current location may be stuck with a gun store next to an elementary school…” Stuck? Stuck with a peaceable, legitimate business? Stuck with a business owner dedicated to educating the community and providing firearms training? Stuck with a veteran-owned small business? What is it, exactly, are they stuck with? I appreciate the FOIA and the publication of the emails, but you’re proving yourselves to be whining cowards.

Why should Mr. Gates be forced to move again?

Why should he have to move his legitimate business to appease these howling, turd-flinging howler monkeys?

He has already been forced out of his contract in Arlington, he had to move his store a few blocks away from its original location, and now this.

Mr. Gates sponsors local charities, including the conservation efforts of local Ducks Unlimited chapters and programs supporting veterans and their families. At his Arlington location, he planned to offer expanded firearms safety training to the community. Oh, and by the way, he’s a Marine Corps vet.

This is the kind of man Favola, Foust, and that opportunistic sow Murphy are harassing. This is the kind of business they aim to destroy.

Do yourselves a favor and read the Bearing Drift Article I cited above. It’s got all the details about the obscene efforts of the area Democrats to not only destroy a veteran and his livelihood, but use his store as a political prop, while blaming his legitimate business for “gun violence.”

Foust, Favola, and the rest of those malignant warts do not deserve the public trust. They don’t deserve to hold public office. They are an embarrassment, and a twisted reminder of the moral corruption of the Democrats in this state.

Snowden on Twitter


The press reported yesterday that traitor extraordinaire Edward Snowden has opened a Twitter account.

His opening tweet was: “Can you hear me now?”

In his profile, Mr Snowden says he “used to work for the government. Now I work for the public”. He quickly gathered thousands of followers.

So far, Mr Snowden, who is wanted in the US for leaking secrets, only follows one other Twitter user – the US National Security Agency (NSA).

Many of you know how I feel about Snowden. I made it no secret that I believe he was a Russian asset from the get go, and that the tiny amount of information he released about spying on U.S. citizens is hugely overshadowed by the millions of files he released that compromise legitimate intelligence gathering means and methods and threaten our ability to gather information on transnational organized criminal groups, terrorists, and other unsavory characters worldwide.

His Twitter presence has an air of arrogance, of attention whoring, and of self-aggrandizing conceit. By following only one Twitter account – the NSA – the little windbag is telling the United States, “Hey! Look at me! I’m here!”


The air is almost Assange-like in its supercilious swagger.

But as is the norm, along comes a gaseous windbag that makes Snowden look somewhat sympathetic and reasonable… OK, I wouldn’t go that far… How about less douchey? Said windbag is George Pataki – former governor of New York, GOP back-runner, polling right around no percent, and authoritarian shitslurper – who has decided in his infinite wisdom to call on Twitter to ban Edward Snowden.

What. The. Hell.

Pataki now feels himself qualified to tell a social media platform whom it should or should not allow a voice? Really?

What is it with these statist fuckbats? Yeah… we’re Republican… we want small government and less intrusion in your lives, unless we don’t like you, in which case we will call on private entities to ban you.

To be fair, I haven’t seen anything that indicates Pataki is advocating government force to shut down the account, but that said… I’m not sure I’d trust him not to if he was in a position of power.

As much as I find Snowden to be a repugnant, traitorous shitbag, what I find even more disgusting is someone who wants to be elected to this nation’s highest office trying to pressure a private company to ban someone’s voice. Hell, even notorious Sinaloa crime boss Chapo and his thug offspring have accounts on Twitter! All sorts of unsavory characters use the social media platform. Does Pataki want to shut down their accounts as well?

You want to shut down Snowden? Extradite him to the United States, give him a fair trial, and put him in prison for a long, long time! There is enough evidence to convict him ten times over! He stole classified information. He revealed said classified information to the world, including our adversaries. He compromised critical operations. He released said information willy nilly without giving thought to how much harm he could do, and then arrogantly pissed that this was the “price of freedom.” I can’t imagine a halfway competent prosecutor screwing this up! So try him and imprison him. That’s how you shut down that pernicious piece of detritus.

And yes, I know I’ve emotionally wished death upon that maggot on this blog before. There’s still a nasty, vindictive part of me that wants him to eat a polonium sandwich, but that part of me is small. I’m much more committed to the ideals I swore to defend when I took my oath, and those ideals don’t include a Pataki-like attack on freedom.

What Happens When You Oppose the Regime?


What do a puppet theater, a torture investigator and a forest-preservation group have in common? In Russia, all are considered “foreign agents” and could face closure.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Kremlin (you know… the one in Russia) is cracking down on political opposition to the policies of the current regime by basically accusing individuals and groups as “foreign agents.” Apparently, Russian President Vladimir Putin doesn’t like dissent.

This is my shocked face.

This is nothing new, mind you. The Russian government has routinely accused NGOs of subversion, of being funded by the West in order to foment unrest, etc. Of course, now that we have basically slammed Putin’s sack in a door after we shut it off to long term credit for its banks, closed business off to various economic sectors, and froze assets of certain Putin buddies, those accusations have reached fevered pitch!

So back in May, Putin signed new legislation that would allow Moscow to pretty much shut down any foreign-backed group considered “undesirable.” And while I hate invoking Godwin’s law here and reminding readers of the steps the Nazis took to weed out “undesirables” and wipe them from the planet, if the shoe fits…

And while Putin is trying to paint the law as just another way to distinguish between foreign and domestically-backed groups, the fact that Moscow has designated the grass-roots group Committee Against Torture, (a group that has received human-rights awards for securing nearly $700,000 in compensation for victims of police torture), as well as Memorial – Russia’s oldest human rights group, which has worked to document the crimes of Stalinism and commemorating its victims – as “foreign agents” is pretty telling.

Here’s the thing. Designating charities, organizations, or groups as “foreign agents” accomplishes several things.

First, it adds an implied accusation of subversion or even treason to the group’s reputation, which will probably make it difficult to maintain business relationships and reputation within Russia. It’s a sort of a “name and shame” strategy that will compel some business partners, individuals, banks, etc. to sever their relationships with the entity as sort of a de-risking move.

Second, if these groups want to continue operating in Russia they would likely have to decline further foreign financing, which would force them to turn to the Kremlin for funds.

And you know what happens when the Kremlin begins to fund an organization! If you want to receive those cute little rubles, you’d better stop being contrary to the Kremlin’s policies and agenda.

It’s a pretty effective way to quash opposition. You don’t have to throw dissidents in the gulag. Hell, you don’t even have to arrest them! You just need to cut off all other sources of funding and force them to rely on the government, which will then have every right to demand that said opponents alter their message to lick the hand that feeds them.

I know there are people out there who continue to defend Putin and Russia as merely reacting to perceived “US/NATO aggression” in their sphere of influence (yeah, I’m talking to you, Dan Carlin!), your lack of understand what is going on in Putin’s policy circles and their foreign policy and frothing zeal to lay blame at the feet of the United States is staggering and somewhat disturbing.

Still think this POS is a “whistleblower?”


The only whistle he blew is on classified programs that exist to target terrorists, drug trafficking organizations, and transnational organized crime groups. He handed over critical pieces of information to the world, including our adversaries. He didn’t bother reading what he released. He just stole a bunch of files and handed them over to the media.

Anyone who thinks this douche pickle is a hero needs to have his or her head examined.

In a television interview the fugitive squirmed as he admitted only ‘evaluating’ the files stolen from GCHQ and the US National Security Agency.

The former US spy also acknowledged there had been a ‘f***-up’ when newspapers that were handed the classified material failed to redact sensitive details exposing operations against Al Qaeda.

But in an outburst of arrogance, Snowden said such potentially catastrophic blunders were a ‘fundamental’ price of liberty.

The only fuck up is that this traitorous piece of garbage is still walking free.

Fundamental price of liberty? So endangering lives, handing critical national security secrets to aggressive enemy states, and cutting off access to critical access is the fundamental price of liberty? Death of innocent people is the fundamental price of liberty?

Fuck you, Snowden! Just fucking die already, you piece of shit!

I should really post more


I know it’s been weeks since I’ve written anything. I needed a break. I haven’t really been in the mood to write. First, there was the snow, which prompted me to sit around in bed all day in my pajamas drinking hot tea and watching Law & Order reruns.

And now… I’m off on temporary duty to Miami.

I know… HARDSHIP! But you’d be surprised how crappy it feels to go from a foot of snow in DC to 85-degree heat with 10000 percent humidity down in southern Florida! So if you have a snarky comment about how you feel oh-so-sorry for me being down here, keep it to yourself, punkin, because all you’ll get from me is a one-fingered salute.

As for what I’ve been up to?


For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been a regular part of the GunBlog Variety Cast along with some awesome folks, including Sean Sorrentino and Erin Palette. I’ve been doing this for a while now, but I’ve been an abject FAIL at blogging about it, because I’m lazy. So go over there and listen. Surprisingly enough, I don’t bloviate about guns on this one, but rather foreign policy. Erin talks about prepping, Sean and Adam talk about… stuff, and other incredible, talented, and intelligent folks talk about guns and tech. It’s fun. You should check it out, if you want to find out what I sound like on the air (shout out to my broadcaster background!).

And no, I don’t curse.

So what’s been going on?

Well, for one, we kicked Maduro and his band of Venezuelan thugs in the nuts with some sanctions last week. And if you hear them whining that this means the United States is about to launch into some kind of military action against them, you can laugh a little, because they’re either ignorant, or just want to raise the level of whining. Fact is that they were sanctioned under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), which authorizes the President to regulate commerce after declaring a “national emergency” in response to any unusual or extraordinary foreign threat. It certainly doesn’t authorize any kind of military action.

Specifically, the E.O. targets those determined by the Department of the Treasury, in consultation with the Department of State, to be involved in:

  • actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions;
  • significant acts of violence or conduct that constitutes a serious abuse or violation of human rights, including against persons involved in antigovernment protests in Venezuela in or since February 2014;
  • actions that prohibit, limit, or penalize the exercise of freedom of expression or peaceful assembly; or
  • public corruption by senior officials within the Government of Venezuela.

The E.O. also authorizes the Department of the Treasury, in consultation with the Department of State, to target any person determined:

  • to be a current or former leader of an entity that has, or whose members have, engaged in any activity described in the E.O. or of an entity whose property and interests in property are blocked or frozen pursuant to the E.O.; or
  • to be a current or former official of the Government of Venezuela;

What does this all mean? It means we don’t like corrupt thugs who steal money from their own people while undermining their basic rights using the U.S. financial system. So we cut off their access to it.

What else has been going on?

The Justice Department determined there was no basis for continued legal action against Darren Wilson, who last year shot Michael Brown in an action which was determined to be justified. Of course, Holder and the DOJ can’t leave well enough alone, so even though the shoot was good, they put out a report citing racism in the Ferguson PD writ large in an obvious attempt to mollify the screeching race hustlers. It is interesting to note that the report cites revenue generation being emphasized in the PD’s approach to law enforcement.

Patrol assignments and schedules are geared toward aggressive enforcement of Ferguson’s municipal code, with insufficient thought given to whether enforcement strategies promote public safety or unnecessarily undermine community trust and cooperation. Officer evaluations and promotions depend to an inordinate degree on “productivity,” meaning the number of citations issued. Partly as a consequence of City and FPD priorities, many officers appear to see some residents, especially those who live in Ferguson’s predominantly African-American neighborhoods, less as constituents to be protected than as potential offenders and sources of revenue.

This is a problem that’s not just limited to Ferguson. Nothing new and different there, and I’ve often been appalled at the outrageous fees and penalties imposed on citizens for engaging in a simple mistake or minor traffic violation. So I get it. It sucks.

But in the same breath, the DOJ’s report claims that “The harms of Ferguson’s police and court practices are borne disproportionately by African Americans, and there is evidence that this is due in part to intentional discrimination on the basis of race.”

Lemme ask ya something. If it is obvious that the city’s focus is on revenue generation, rather than public safety, and therefore, it views the PREDOMINANTLY AFRICAN-AMERICAN city as a source of revenue generation, wouldn’t it stand to reason that in a predominantly black city, the brunt of those revenue generation policies would be… um… black, and that the reason Ferguson’s law enforcement practices and policies overwhelmingly impact African-Americans is because THAT’S WHO PREDOMINANTLY LIVES IN THE FRIGGIN’ CITY?

But hey, some of us don’t go looking for racism under every bed and around every corner.

In response to said report, Ferguson’s city manager has resigned and a state judge will be in charge of all Ferguson cases. Every town needs scapegoats, I suppose. That, of course, didn’t mollify the stampeding hordes, and just this past weekend, two police officers were shot after working crowd control in Ferguson. Police charged Jeffrey Williams with the shooting. The suspect admits he fired the weapon, but claims he was aiming at someone else in the crowd.

I’m trying to wrap my head at the amount of fucking stupid it takes to make such an admission. Stupid #1) You fire your weapon into a crowd of fucking people. Stupid #2) You admit to doing so, but hey… you weren’t aiming at police, and I guess you were expecting to hit your mark dead on. In a crowd. You dimwitted, miserable FAIL of a fucktard. Stupid #2) The only two people you conveniently hit are two cops. How propitious, considering the demonstrations were all about supposed police “racism.”

And, of course, Holder has been sniveling about how much acts of violence against law enforcement are not to be tolerated. Never mind he and his DOJ are the ones fomenting said unrest!

OK, enough about that.

There was supposedly a ceasefire agreement reached in Ukraine. Well, it was reached, but if you’re thinking that it’s somehow been effective, you’d be wrong. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg says the ceasefire is “fragile.” I think while violence has been reduced some, he’s the master of the understatement. If you want a boots on the ground (so to speak) glimpse into what’s going on, you should follow U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt on Twitter. The Russians will tell you it’s not their fault – that it’s the separatists failing to abide by the ceasefire – that they have no control over said militants. Um… yeah… right. If you think that Moscow isn’t behind the continuous arming of separatists in the region, I have this bridge…

Yes, I know I should keep up with my blogging, but even I need a break sometimes, so if I’m not around, it’s because I’m busy having a life.

A bit of a follow up on the Ferguson retardery


I know I haven’t been writing often. Frankly, I’m disgusted every time I turn my computer on, and it’s making me want to delete all my social media, all my writing, and just hide somewhere in a cave. Really… how fucked up can this world be?

To answer that question, I did do a bit of a round-up of the Klown Kar asshattery that is the post-Ferguson United States for the Zelman Partisans yesterday. You should go read it over there, along with other amazing essays by the likes of Claire Wolfe and Ilana Mercer. Seriously. Go read.

Meantime, what’s got me particularly steamed is the treatment one young lady received at the hands of batshit insane social justice warriors on Reddit.

Tolerant, peaceable social justice warriors chose to threaten a young lady who posted a limerick on Tumbler condemning Michael Brown as a thug. Not only did they expose her identity, phone number, address, and university on the Internet (an odious practice called “doxing” that essentially bullies those who might disagree with you into silence for fear for their very lives), but they threatened to rape her mother, to burn down her house, and decapitate and dismember her. Because social justice for anyone who disagrees with the victim mentality is harassment, death, rape, and dismemberment.

That’s right. Death. Rape. Dismemberment. For posting a limerick about Michael Brown. They’ve texted and called her hundreds of times. They’ve threatened her family. They’ve contacted her school – George Mason University – and reported her to some diversity/inclusion/sexual harassment/something or other office the school has.


And when she threatened to press charges against them, and posted screen shots of their evil, scummy, threatening, violent messages, guess what they did!  They threatened to press charges against her for publicizing the phone numbers they gave her when calling and texting her! This, of course, after taunting her and telling her that she won’t be able to press charges over Internet harassment.

Nice, right?

Meanwhile, the harassment of this girl continues unabated.  Some douche weasel lodged a complaint against her for sexual harassment with GMU. Her phone number was posted on Tumbler, and shit like this was sent to her phone.



Ah yes, those tolerant social justice warriors, who are so brave, threatening a girl from behind their social media accounts and their telephones! These are the bastards who are all incensed, because she posted a limerick. Lovely, right?


If you want to know why I want to move to a deserted island, it’s because of jackassery such as this.

We all have the right to free speech. But when you use that right to facilitate threats, violence, abuse, libel, and harassment, that’s no longer protected. That’s criminal and disgusting.

I don’t give a shit if the person is a racist, homophobe, necrophile, wears white after Labor Day, or scratches at scabs and leaves them under the table in a restaurant. You don’t have the right to threaten and harass someone merely because you don’t like them or what they say or do. A true respect for freedom means having the integrity to stand up and defend with your life another person’s right to say something you find deplorable.

To quote one of my favorite movies, “America isn’t easy. America is advanced citizenship. You’ve gotta want it bad, ’cause it’s gonna put up a fight. It’s gonna say, ‘You want free speech? Let’s see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who’s standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours.'”

Remember that next time you want to threaten someone for speaking or writing words with which you disagree. Because until you have the integrity to defend all forms of speech – even ones with which you disagree – without egregious and disgusting threats to the speaker or their family, you are a problem.

A big one.

Election Eve 2014 in Virginia


Greetings, folks. Yes, I know it’s quite some time since you’ve heard from me in this space, but I figured this was an important enough occasion for me to pop my head up. As those of us in Virginia no doubt already know, thanks to the deluge of election mailers, emails and robocalls, tomorrow is election day. Annoying as all that is and has been, everyone should still get out and cast an educated vote tomorrow, if they haven’t voted absentee already.

At stake this year is about one third of the U.S. Senate, the House of Representatives, and various of sundry gubernatorial, statewide, county, city and local races around the nation. As it stands, the Republicans currently hold the House, and the Democrats control the Senate, along with, of course, the White House. The electoral environment is particularly good for Republicans this cycle, more due to the combination of far-left ideology and rank incompetence on display by the Democrats than anything the Republicans themselves have to offer. Here in Virginia, U.S. Senator (and former Governor) Mark Warner is up for re-election, endorsed by his predecessor (no relation) John Warner, a notoriously weak Republican who was never popular with the grassroots among his own party. Mark Warner was actually a decent governor, aside from pushing the largest tax increase in Virginia history through the General Assembly. He was even fairly pro-gun as governor. Then he ran for U.S. Senate in 2008, promising to be a ‘radical centrist’ if elected. He has not been. As Republicans love to point out, he’s voted with President Obama 97% of the time. And he’s been effectively anti-gun, as his endorsement by MomsDemandingAttention/GunHysteriaNonsenseInEverytown shows:

Mark Warner voted for the Manchin-Toomey Amendment (S.AMDT.715) to S. 649, the Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013, which would require background checks for guns sold online, at gun shows, and through classified ads.

As such, the most important thing is for everyone to get out and vote AGAINST Mark Warner in Virginia. The aforementioned anti-gun nutbag hysteria machine has also endorsed some Democrats running for U.S. House in Virginia: incumbent Rep. Bobby Scott in the 3rd District, Don Beyer here in the 8th District, John Foust in the 10th, and incumbent Rep. Gerry Connolly in the 11th District. If you live in any of these districts, please get out and vote to DEFEAT these weasels.

Lastly, if you live in Arlington County, please, please, PLEASE vote for John Vihstadt for County Board tomorrow. He represents the only independent, non-Democratic voice on our board, and is carrying the banner of good government and fiscal responsibility. Want our horrendous roads fixed? Want to put a stop to the wasteful Artisphere, Columbia Pike streetcar, aquatic center and other vanity projects being pushed by the current Board majority? Support John tomorrow.

That is all.
