The Congressional Hispanic Caucus- which just happens to be all Democrats-

refuses to allow a Republican to join.  Basically "You're brown, but you're the wrong kind of brown."

Then: "There must be body cameras on every cop!"
Now: "You're using them wrong, it's a threat!"

"But those black people aren't playing the game the way we want them to!  And they're succeeding!  That makes us look bad!"  Etc.
“I grew up in the Congo and have numerous friends in the U.S. from the Congo and other African countries who are here for an education or a better life. Every one of them is grateful for the opportunity to secure an excellent education. … Most come here from different cultures with minimal money and limited English language skills. Interestingly, I’ve never heard one complain about discrimination, obstacles or being a victim. Rather, they are grateful. Juxtapose this with Cornell’s Black Students United (BSU) whose members feel they should be treated better than every other color or race if they have ancestors who’ve been here for more than two generations.

“The counterintuitive posturing of American blacks denying other blacks from Africa or the Caribbean is appalling. First-generation African or Caribbean students have more obstacles to overcome to get into any university, much less a prestigious one like Cornell. Furthermore, the liberal American blacks who worship at the altar of ‘diversity’ and ‘victimhood’ should welcome real Africans or Caribbeans versus seeking preferences for those American blacks who truly have the superior advantage of having grown up in the U.S.

When this crap started coming out, and the pictures started making it around, I remember the standard line from the left was "That's just ol' Joe being Joe."  Now they just don't want to talk about it.  At all.
...From swimming in the nude and walking around the residence sans clothing, but only when Mrs. Biden wasn’t around, to inappropriate touching to a reported incident where another agent was suspended after shoving Biden for grabbing his girl friend’s breast, the picture is not a pretty one.

He [the agent] said that the men on duty would frequently stand in front of female agents and Navy women that were present “like a damn guardian.” On some occasions, they would make up reasons to get the women away from where he [Biden] was.

"But- but eggs and omelets!  Communism could be GREAT!"

Tell me again of the wonders of government-controlled health care

Ah yes, one of those accomplishments of Hillary that we're supposed to be in awe of.
European Islamist scion Tariq Ramadan was banned from the U.S. by the Bush administration in February 2004 for his financial support of a charity that funded terrorist groups. In January 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton overturned that ban. Clinton personally approved a visa for the controversial grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Now, Tariq Ramadan is facing multiple accusations of rape and sexual assault of minors.

So what else is out there, moving around in the depths, that we don't know about?

But they love to whine about "Why don't people trust us?"

In ten years of studying violent encounters and learning everything I could about every shooting I could, I never once found a newspaper article that got all the facts right. Usually they weren’t even close. In that same time period I offered free training in Use of Force to reporters or detractors, and never once had any of them take me up on it.
Part of a piece Correia did on use of force; well worth reading.

"Stop calling yourself a feminist unless you say what we tell you to!"
One more reason I have that 'Nutcase-level feminism' category. 

Victims of a mass shooting perpetrated by organized government are just as dead as victims of a mass shooting perpetrated by a lone nut. Adopt the broadest definition of “mass shooting” that you want (e.g., three victims wounded, one killed). Add up all the mass shooting deaths from lunatics, organized crime, jihadist cells and ordinary criminals. The global, historical total of mass shooting deaths will be gruesome, and it will also be small compared to the total of mass shooting deaths perpetrated by criminal governments — including Fascists, Communists and non-ideological tyrants.

I shall now continue with getting some stuff cleared.  See  you later

I've come to the conclusion that the best way to start off with a woman's first range trip,

at least when she's visibly nervous, is very simple: "You can do this."  Some stuff added in, but that seems to be the base.  Men, on their first time- especially late teens/early 20's, it's not nervousness, it's "Don't do stupid things and we won't have to throw you out"; put more politely, but still, that being followed by the safety and how-to stuff.

The real problems generally come from someone who's not new to shooting, thinks they know it all, and don't like being told "Don't do that."

That's the extent of my deep thoughts for the evening.  I shall now return to trying to get something done.

Pretty busy next few days;

light bloggage ahead.  I'll try to make time for the data dumps, but no promises

From the only people professional enough to be trusted with guns:

An F.B.I. counterterrorism supervisor is under internal investigation after a woman stole his gun following a night of heavy drinking in a North Carolina hotel, according to documents and government officials.

In July, Robert Manson, a unit chief in the F.B.I.’s international terrorism section, had his Glock .40-caliber handgun, a $6,000 Rolex watch and $60 in cash stolen from his room at the Westin hotel in Charlotte, N.C., according to a police report.

Feinstein is a nasty, corrupt, hypocrite politician who cares about one thing(besides money):

control.  Always more control over the commoners.
It's interesting that Feinstein sees that as the "one reason" why this bill has been introduced. Not because it will stop mass shootings, or because it will make it harder for bad people to get guns, or even because it's a small step toward a less violent society.

Nope. This bill has been introduced for "one reason": so Democrats can score political points by holding it up and waving it every time there's a high-profile crime with a gun. Look! There's a bill right here, ready for debate and a vote! Will the bill do anything to stop these horrific attacks from happening? Well, no, but that's not the point.
It never is: CONTROL is the point.  She keeps a bill sitting in a drawer just waiting for another chance to throw it out, and she always will.

Yeah, about that Australian Model of gun control,

not working so well
Previously unseen police statistics show that the number of pistol-related offences doubled in Victoria and rose by 300 per cent in New South Wales. At least two other states also saw a massive jump in firearms-related offences during the same period.
Hmmm, wonder why they were 'previously unseen'.
The statistics detail the types of firearms offences police have pursued in the courts in the past decade and show some concerning findings, including a massive 83 per cent increase in firearms offences in NSW between 2005/06 and 2014/15, and an even bigger jump in Victoria over the same period.

So, bad guys are still getting guns despite honest citizens being screwed by the laws.  Sound familiar?

Here's something else that'll sound familiar:
Samantha Lee, an advocate for tighter firearms laws at Gun Control Australia, said the laws regulating the sale of ammunition in Tasmania and Victoria were weak.

“There is very little regulation of ammunition purchase,” she said. “In most jurisdictions you can purchase ammunition because you have a firearm licence and there is no restriction on the type you can purchase – so if you own a rifle you can still purchase ammunition for a handgun.”
So 'very little regulation' means
"You can't buy it without a firearms license, and if you're caught with a round and you don't have said license you'll go to jail, but IT'S NOT ENOUGH!"
And it will never be enough for these people until it's all banned, and only the .gov and the crooks have guns.

(Yes, I know, the article's a couple of years old; the points still hold)

Yeah, things are so much better in Europe...

But while Swedish women rank among the most equal in the world, they increasingly fear for their physical safety on the streets. Reported sex crimes increased by 61 percent between 2007 and 2016. Meanwhile a rise in gang violence among men–the number of victims injured by gunshots increased by 50 percent between 2004 and 2016–indirectly affects the safety of women. Police admit that rape cases are piling up without being investigated because resources are being drained by gang violence and shootings.
And guess who seems to be 'overrepresented' in all this?
A similar study, conducted in 2005, showed an even higher overrepresentation of immigrants among sex crime suspects, by then up to 5.1 times as likely as Swedes to commit rape (see pages 70-77 for a summary in English). In the 2005 study, BrĂ¥ explained the growing over-representation with reference to demographics and immigration: “[T]he number of people in Sweden belonging to the group of refugees, which have in earlier studies been shown to have an especially high propensity to commit crime, has increased.” It is a plausible hypothesis that the same mechanism is at work now.
And the government still doesn't want to talk about this part of it.  Because PC No Matter The Cost is the most important thing.

Why, it's almost like there was a fix in...

Memos released to Congress yesterday show that former FBI Director James Comey watered-down his description of Hillary Clinton's conduct.
Originally Comey accused the former secretary of state of being “grossly negligent” in handling classified information in a draft dated May 2, 2016, but that was modified to claim that Clinton had been “extremely careless” in a draft dated June 10, 2016.

Comey stuck to that modified language when he announced in July 2016 that there would be no charges against Clinton.

Federal law states that gross negligence in handling the nation’s intelligence can be punished criminally with prison time or fines, according to The Hill, which first reported on the memos.
But we can trust the EffingBI.  Y'know, Comey and all the other senior people involved in this.
