Instapundit rhetorically asks: What’s Matt Drudge trying to say here?

drudgeguns

Drudge can make a bigger statement with just a few words and a couple of pictures than anybody else in the biz.

I wrote about what that headline is in reference to in this post.

Update: Predictably, the left is isn’t thrilled with the Drudge insinuation — because Hitler should only be used in Bush comparisons.

    Yep. Drudge earns that enormous number of page views he racks up. A friend sent me a link to him when I first went on the internet in 2005. I've been checking in there multiple times every day since.

    Drudge makes an accurate comparison with his linkage to Hitler and Stalin, but could have easily incl. many more. These dictators declared gun ownership illegal and soon, many millions of people were exterminated. While I`m not too concerned that our Controller-in-Chief would resort to extermination, I can him and his ilk instituting some really uncomfortably controlling regs on us !

    At one time I had learned to fear these EO's but now they don't add up to much more than trial balloons. They shoot of a few every day.

  5. Truesoldier__ on January 9th, 2013 9:46 pm

    It does make you wonder just what the trial balloon would be here on gun control? How far would he actually try to go? These threats have caused real fear in the public that the government may try to take our right to own a firarm away and has fueled a massive gun buying frenzy nation wide.

    With the amount of guns being purchased now Obama will be very hard pressed to round them up in any sort of peaceful manner.

    I`m with both of you, but I`m looking for a mass release of trial balloons hoping some slip by.

    This was the topic of discussion on the local talk show today. A caller said that if they start to round up weapons and a gov. officer gets shot, then all hell will break loose on both sides of the issue. It could get really ugly really fast.

    Another caller said that her Sheriff had said he would follow the law, which means since he views our Constitution as a "living document" and as a lib. dem., he`d set right about confiscating guns. The Oath Keepers would be put to the test !

    With the background coding on that page, if you go there once and left it there, you've gone about 240 times a day, because it auto-refreshes every 6 minutes or so.

    I went to him the first time when the Monica Lewinsky scandal blew.

    I've been back every day since.

    I am terrified of them. I read somewhere… wait, let me look…
    oh, here it is, the US Constitution:

    Article I

    Section 1. All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

    The next time there is a conservative revolution in Congress and the Executive Branch, they have one last chance to set it right, and that means:

    1. Restoring the branches to their rightful duties. No 4th branch of offloading executive, legislative, and judicial authority to them. I mean you, FDA, EEOC, EPA, among others.
    2. Repealing the 17th Amendment.
    3. Repealing the 16th Amendment.
    4. Amending the 26th Amendment to allow those serving the country in the military the right to vote at 18, the rest at 21. Also, making it an act of treason to deny the vote to anyone in the military.
    5. Enact the original 1st Amendment (Article the First) to make representation in Congress truly proportional, and make that proportion no more than one representative for every 30,000, nor less than one for every 40,000 persons.
    6. Make re-election to a federal post contingent on getting 50% + one percentage for each year held in that office, to a maximum of 66%. Let's see those idiots try to convince 2/3 of their districts that they are all that. Also, no pension for anyone being voted out, and resignation within one year of an election counts as losing.

    I think that's a good start.

  9. Truesoldier__ on January 10th, 2013 2:35 am

    I have seen what some of the EO's Obama is considering:

    making gun-trafficking a felony, getting the Justice Department to prosecute people caught lying on gun background-check forms and ordering federal agencies to send data to the National Gun Background Check Database.

    Well, le's look at each of these:

    making gun-trafficking a felony – Not going to happen as they would have to start with the ATF and DOJ for F&F.

    Getting the Justice Department to prosecute people caught lying on gun background-check forms – Wow, you mean actually upholding a law that is already on the books?! That is just crazy. Of Course again that could cause problems for F&F officials, so doubt it will happen.

    ordering federal agencies to send data to the National Gun Background Check Database. – This is one I could see happening as the left has always wanted a national gun registry and that is pretty much what this is. OF course once the database gets hacked criminals will have a fairly accurate map of where to rob and where not to.

    Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Mussolini, Hitler are all part of the far left heroes that Progressives have lionized at one time.

    "Sore from the slings and arrows of foreign criticism, Germans heard gratefully last week a warm, approving speech from Dr. Clarence Gordon Campbell, president of the American Eugenics Research Association, delivered before the World Population Congress in Berlin." -Time, 1935-09-09

    "A direct line of thought leads from Marx's antidemocratic radicalism to leaders such as Benito Mussolini — a European fascist who in his time was lauded by Franklin Roosevelt, who wrote in 1933 that he was "impressed by what [Mussolini] has accomplished."

    …and it goes on…

    Violence and Deception are the calling cards of Progressives.

  11. SignPainterGuy on January 10th, 2013 3:26 am

    Clearly, you`ve given this some thought ! I think it`s good thinking !

  12. SignPainterGuy on January 10th, 2013 3:31 am

    A gun registry already exists; it`s the record of all legal purchases since the early `70s at least.

  13. SignPainterGuy on January 10th, 2013 3:52 am

    FWIW, Hitler is known to have allied with muslims during WWII, I guess in part because of their mutual hatred and distrust of Jews.

    Yes, violence and deception are part and parcel to the leftist agenda ! If the power of persuasion doesn`t work, switch to the persuasion of power ….. truth and honesty never enter into their thoughts !

  14. jeffythequick on January 10th, 2013 4:18 am

    1. What we have now is a bunch of unaccountable bureaucrats enacting regulations, and that is anathema to what our Founders envisioned. At least the House of Commons in the 1700's was accountable to who elected them.

    2. States have no say now in the Federal government, which they (the states) created. That government now enacts laws that the states must follow with no accountability.

    3. Income tax says to the people, "the money is ours, and we let you keep what we think you need," and that is the opposite of freedom.

    4. 18 year olds don't have enough experience to vote properly, unless they have been disciplined by the military. I'm willing to give 18-21 year olds a test to see if they know how to be citizens. Heck, the naturalization test would do.

    5. 730,000 people per representative, as we have now, makes them not representatives any more. They are just cogs in the wheel now. They cannot represent a person, only blocks of people.

    6. This is a better term limit rule. If someone is really that good, they should be able to garner 2/3 of the votes, otherwise, it's time for new blood in there. I'm sure what's her face from California and the other idiot from Texas will still be there, but at least there will be some turnover in the House. The "no pension" rule is to encourage them to leave, and the resign rule is to not have them read the tea leaves 6 months before an election.

    I like root cause analysis. It takes care of the problem, not the symptom.

  15. jeffythequick on January 10th, 2013 4:22 am

    I say, publish the names of all the gun owners and their addresses, like that idiot newspaper did.

    I'd feel a lot safer with the burglars going for my next door neighbor, the gun loather!

    I have a sign on my house that reads, "If you break into my house, you'll hear me say two things: Lie down and put your hands outstretched, and if you don't immediately comply, you'll be lucky if you get to tell anyone the second thing."

  16. SignPainterGuy on January 10th, 2013 4:53 am

    While the record of gun ownership is a matter of public record, I`m not gonna encourage it`s open publication. Why do the work for crooks for the cost of a daily paper ? Your house could become a target for your guns while you`re away.

    A Buddy`s signs are, "Forget the dog, beware of owner" and , "There`s nothing inside worth dying for" ! I also like the variations of, "Trespassers will be shot; survivors will be prosecuted" !

  17. Granny55 on January 10th, 2013 1:13 pm

    I love Drudge – he makes the liberal loonies heads explode. I, too, have followed him since the Slick Willie/Monica Lewinsky "affair".

    The gun range where my son-in-law works has been swamped since Thanksgiving and then when Newtown happened – well it is a zoo. They are hiring extra help and their plans to open up a second location later this year is now in full throttle to open it up ASAP to handle the overflow.

    If something drastic happens I am considering moving from Michigan to Texas just so I am better protected if the sh!t hits the fan.

  18. jeffythequick on January 10th, 2013 3:27 pm

    Ever notice that Iran and Aryan look and sound the same?

  19. SignPainterGuy on January 10th, 2013 3:33 pm

    I have heard in recent months that Iran is a derivative of Aryan, so sounding similar is no coincidence !

  20. SignPainterGuy on January 10th, 2013 3:39 pm

    The winters are a whole lot milder in Texas, so go ahead and move ! ;-)

  21. Granny55 on January 10th, 2013 3:53 pm

    I know but the summers are miserable – I would rather be up north in Michigan floating in the lake then sitting inside with an air conditioner all day. They don't have many pools in Texas because the water gets to hot to even swim in and I don't like snakes so swimming in the waters that surround the Ft. Worth area would not be something I would do. But if it comes right down to it I would move just so I can be surrounded with military trained, heavily armed loved ones!

  22. SignPainterGuy on January 10th, 2013 4:09 pm

    I hear ya loud n clear. When I was about 12, we visited my Aunt and Uncle in Nashville, TN. We don`t see 105° in WNC so I didn`t quite understand. We didn`t have AC at home, so sitting and freezing around a house that was too fancy to move around in drove me nuts. When someone mentioned an ice cream parlor just a few blocks down the street, I pestered my Dad until he agreed we`d walk down there (He wanted out of the house too). Well, we made it two lots away before we began to melt and headed back. I didn`t complain about the AC again !

    I like FL for various reasons, but the thoughts of all those snakes, croc-o-gators, moosquitos and coming home with the chest and sinus crud said NOOOO to me !

    Survivors will be shot again.
