You want my number?

Okay, I admit I skimmed most of the blockquoted parts but does any of the the data address the range of the firearms and concomitant lethality or lack of it? How about accuracy at various distances between rifles of varying caliber vs pistols of any caliber? Are the rifles scoped?

I have more questions if anyone wants to hear them...

rse

When you want governments at all levels to be able to use the law to force people to behave as politicians propose, you really need to disarm them.

Especially if you have been lying about what you are up to.

Threadkiller

Pages 11 and 12 stand out to me:


Officers shot while not responding to a call was the second largest category of excluded cases, totaling 134. These cases consisted of instances where officers were ambushed in unprovoked attacks, performing tactical operations, serving warrants, and conducting follow-up investigative work.

What type of weapons did them in? Were they wearing body armor?

Excluded data...

buccaneer morgan

exactly it's the ammunition, not the weapon, which is responsible for the damage,

Scotland enjoys quite a bit of "social spending", some at the UKs expense. It is doubtful that the EU could pick up the slack on that, and the only reason t do so would be to spite UK, which is a rather expensive luxury at this point.

So it does not surprise that they would want to remain in the EU and remain in the UK.

Incirlik being blockaded amid rumors of another coup attempt?

Have we hauled those nukes outta there yet?

RSE has it right, of course, but toss on top of the social engineering the very real fact that is we go down the path we are headed we will have extremely broad impoverishment, and social and economic dislocation. Wags say that we will become another Venezuela; they are not far wrong.

The Nomeklatura--even just "the rich"--would not be able to walk down the street if the citizenry is not disarmed.They absolutely have to do this if they want to remain in power and wealth. They really do not have a choice.


Again, they want to destroy the USA and everything that has made it work. They central target is the white, Christian middle class. This is their intent, not a side effect. They are truly psychotics and sociopaths, and it is no coincidence that they have such strange people as Obama and Hillary as frontmen. We can never forget this no matter how reasonable they may sound or how powerful their propaganda. It is all lies and they have the vilest intent.

They would absolutely love to see what happened in Turkey happen here. If Hillary wins, it probably will happen here, but at a different tempo.

Again, what is happening here now is only new to the American experience; outside the USA it is an old, sad tale.

Trump might be our last chance; he certainly is our last chance to turn things around in the traditional political manner.

there was a journal piece, that turkish intelligence, couldn't even identify the cells until late in the game, they could see the gulenist influence, this suggests this was a very rudimentary affair somewhat like Col Viaux's abortive pre election move against Allende, or
the keystone cops affair against Noriega, the

JIB, all my reading indicated that, as of 2012 or so, we have a few dozen B61 dial-a-yield gravity bombs there, And the Turks, as NATO members, have refused to agree to move them out. Turks also have F16s that are nuke-certified.

If there's a credible link to the contrary, I'd love to see it.

JiB, during the recent coup (not today) I saw an article that NATO had 30-60 warheads at Incirlik in a bunker controlled by the Turks. That is both the US and Turkey need to agree to use them. But it appears some are there.

Just returned from 6 days in Seacrest Beach, Florida.

The TV in the house we rented had Dish but there must have been some issues so the only news channels it received were RT and MSDNC. I did not watch a second of the DNC. Pure bliss.

I did watch 'Bloodline' on Netflix. If you enjoyed 'Breaking Bad' I highly recommend.

Buc,

Both of those look great. I will have to start on "Marseilles". Liked Depardieu since I first saw him in "The Return of Martin Guerre".

"Bloodline" moves slowly - especially in season 1, but if you like dark it is well worth the investment in time.

For anyone who is uncertain as to how an Article V convention would work, here is the article itself that sets forth the requirements:


Article V

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.

Another Bob,

The B61 brings back some great memories sitting nuc alert during the cold war days in Europe. We called it the "silver bullet" and mostly used it in the Y3 yield in those days (around 70kt if I recall correctly). No one really thought there would ever be a cause to use them, and in fact those days were so much more peaceful than now. The 70's...good times.

Thank you! At least we can retreat to old, dead white males.

Since I'm on Austria, here's the overture from Fledermaus, Strauss, Kleiber, and unfortunately not Vienna:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqJK_s7I9EY

Carlos Kleiber had a lot to live up to -- his father was a rightly regarded great conductor of Beethoven.

Carlos did well for himself, and his Beethoven fifth and seventh symphonies are stellar. I'll post one or the other in the next few days, if you like.

From Fledermaus, there is a wonderful line, that translated roughly is "happy is he who forgets what he cannot change." Sadly the DGG recording is not available on youtube.

Kleibler's recordings of Brahms 4th and Beethoven's 5th (Vienna Philharmonic/Deutsche Grammohon for both) are to me by far the best recordings of these two great works. Truly amazing.

One of the true greats. He was a cult figure in Europe, but for some reason he had a narrower following in the USA. He reminds one of that great Russian pianist, Sviatoslav Richter.

Frau Steingehirn

CH - Here is a bit to show you what narciso meant with 'all booted up' This has been a major undertaking and goal for Soros and his Marxists.
http://keywiki.org/Constitution_2020
"The Constitution 2020 movement is based upon The Constitution in 2020, a book published by Oxford University Press that is a powerful blueprint for implementing a Marxist vision of constitutional law in the years ahead and that is written by progressives. Edited by two of America's leading constitutional scholars, Jack Balkin and Reva Siegel, the book provides a new framework for addressing the most important constitutional issues of the future in a progressive manner. Featuring some of America's so-called finest legal minds - Cass Sunstein, Bruce Ackerman, Robert Post, Harold Koh, Larry Kramer, Noah Feldman, Pam Karlan, William Eskridge, Mark Tushnet, Yochai Benkler and Richard Ford, among others - the book tackles a wide range of issues, including the challenge of new technologies, presidential power, international human rights, religious liberty, freedom of speech, voting, reproductive rights and economic rights. The Constitution in 2020 calls on liberals to articulate their constitutional vision in a way that can command the confidence of ordinary Americans and sway them to the progressive side of dogma. It is a propaganda piece laid out in painstaking and alarming detail.[1]
Major Proponents of the Constitution 2020 Movement
George Soros

George Soros is bankrolling and heavily supporting the Constitution 2020 movement. He staunchly believes that the Constitution is a living, breathing, evolving document. He believes in a new and improved Bill of Rights.[2] His Open Society Institute and the Center for American Progress sponsored the Constitution 2020 conference in April of 2005.
Cass Sunstein

Cass Sunstein is directly connected to Soros' funding for the Constitution 2020 movement, which openly seeks to create a "progressive" consensus as to what the U.S. Constitution should provide for by the year 2020.[2] In April 2005, Sunstein was the opening act for a conference at Yale Law School entitled, "The Constitution in 2020," which sought to change the nature and interpretation of the Constitution by that year.
Eric Holder

Eric Holder sat on the board of a Soros-funded group pushing the same "progressive" constitution in the Constitution 2020 movement.[2]

No, Portman is against Twitch in November, which should be a thorough slattering. The Restraining Order comes due in two or four years. Josh Mandel already has some booster ads featuring Urban Meyer which probably has limited contact hacky sack Restraining Order gripping hard.

Book Reviews
Cass Sunstein - Most Conservatives view of the Constitution Requires a Time Machine, Sept. 26, 2010

"For a generation, conservatives have dominated our constitutional conversation. Now as a new day dawns, this inspiring book recaptures a progressive vision of a Constitution that can fulfill the country's oldest commitments to a robust and inclusive democracy." Linda Greenhouse, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of Becoming Justice Blackmun: Harry Blackmun's Supreme Court Journey[1]

"For much too long, progressive thinkers have been either responding reflexively to agendas set by the right, or wringing their hands over the absence of constructive options of their own. This volume marks the end of that time in the wilderness. Constitutional progressives who read this book's veritable cornucopia of carefully conceived alternatives are bound to be energized by the vistas opened here - and challenged by the puzzles posed in every sparkling chapter." Laurence Tribe, author of The Invisible Constitution[1]

Well, Gilels himself considered Richter his superior. Gilels, after a tour in the West, which surprised him in its great success, was heard to have said something like "wait until you hear Richter". To me, Richter was the greatest pianist of the last century (I was trained as a pianist, BTW, and am not a horn player, as some here seem to think).

But do not get me wrong, I love Gilels too and must have most of his recordings (Richter's too).

I think a great comparison of the two are the recordings they both made of Brahms' second piano concerto, Gilels with Jochum and the Berliner Phil, and Richter with Leinsdorf and the CSO. The Gilels is done in one take without studio edits, so it is very close to a live recording; the Richter is a live recording (and the recording quality could be better). These recordings show them both at their very best, and show their differences well. To my ear, these two recordings are by far the best performances of this work that have ever been recorded.

BTW, within the last decade or so quite a few heretofore unknown recordings of Richter have come to light, and have been issued on CD. If you are unaware of them, you should check them out.

I think the biggest problems with Richter are: 1) in the recordings there are gaping holes in the standard piano repertoire, and 2) through no fault of his, the audio quality of the recording are uneven, and sometimes really quite poor.

I don't know, CH, but I know it's necessary to understand what the monsters have hopes of establishing.
Related: Randy Barnett's recent book "The Republican Constitution" focuses on two views of the constitution depending on how one understands "We the People." Barnett does not mean the Republican party or the Democrat party. The former puts the individual first and then the government; the latter puts the government first and then the individual. The written constitution vs. the 'living' one fits in. I am finding the book easy to read and informative about our present situation--how we got here.

I also want to hear Mark Levin's side of Article 5 argument.

To the question upthread on how much the Right is involved in this 2020 vision, the answer is a lot but not at the same convention and not with the precise same arguments. I just read FH Buckley's new book from Encounter that came out in April and it thoroughly sickens me that he is in charge of the George Mason program educating federal judges in law and economics. Like that jindal paper last year that used the phrase free enterprise to describe business providing a product government was both mandating and regulating, buckley's book is footnote after footnote of citing known (to me anyway) Marxists.

We have our convergence. Again pence may not know the history of school choice and abbott may not know where this state concon he called for is really designed to go, but employees of the 'think tanks' recommending these initiatives certainly do. They are the ones collaborating with the people tied to 2020 and frequently changing jobs.

Last point, these UN docs that our federal agencies are now implemtning through rulings like Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing are very much tied to using the law as an offensive weapon to bind us all without consent.

This was in a doc I read yesterday on the quito conference. I am about to read the update that came out this week to see what changed. The "local authorities" are to be granted "the legal capacity to enforce them upon adoption." The local is the best point of implementation and the progs just love the concept of "subsidiarity".

It's why I call it the right and left pincer action herding us to a common destination.
