FBI Director Comey – Just who is he?

Yesterday I had my tin foil out in fine style and suggested that the FBI use of informants particularly in terrorism cases was often not what it appeared in the post Was the Orlando terrorist Mateen an FBI informant?

Setting aside my screed, let me offer another point of view of FBI director Comey who almost universally is depicted as a white hat in shining armor, at this very moment holding the future of the Democrat party in his hands. We are apparently in the process of giving up due process in order to achieve a modicum of gun control. The new NDAA is soon up for a vote. Just who will be looking over our shoulder?Just who is FBI Director Comfey?James B. Comey, new F.B.I. nominee is not what you think 

What you will not hear from the Obama-friendly media, and our somnolent members of Congress, is this: Not only was the Patriot Act expanded under the supervision of Comey, Mueller and Ashcroft, when Comey left the AG’s office in 2005 he went to work as the top lawyer for…wait for it…”Big Brother” himself – Lockheed Martin.

As the Chief Legal Officer at Lockheed Martin, James Comey earned a total compensation of $6,113,797.00 in 2009. That’s right. Six million bucks. In one year.

When most people hear Lockheed Martin they think military contracts. Well, welcome to 1984. “Big Brother” is another name for Lockheed Martin, and security and surveillance is their game. They’ve been working closely with the National Security Agency (AKA: NSA, as in No Such Agency) for many years.

So ask yourself: Why would the Obama regime appoint a new FBI Director who works for a prime contractor that sells NSA the technology to spy on Americans? Would PETA hire a fur coat distributor?

Oh, by the way, where’s John Ashcroft today? Why he’s on the Board of Directors of Blackwater USA,which now goes by the harmless sounding name – Academi – conjuring up images of ivy-covered buildings and lounging intellectuals.

So in the days ahead, when the media and politicians tell you that James B. Comey will stand up for your civil liberties as FBI Director (citing a hospital room performance over the Patriot Act), remember: If Comey didn’t support spying on Americans, why would he work for a leading company that sells the government the tools to spy on Americans?

Are the manufacturers of hunting rifles against hunting?

Comey and Ashcroft – Lockheed Martin and Blackwater: Defenders of our civil liberties?

And just to round out what the FBI is about, let’s hear from the previous director.

FBI Director: I have to check to see if Obama can kill citizens on U.S. soil January 26, 2013

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder’s “three criteria” for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S.
Pressed by House lawmakers about a recent speech in which Holder described the legal justification for assassination, Mueller, who was attending a hearing on his agency’s budget, did not say without qualification that the three criteria could not be applied inside the U.S.
“I have to go back. Uh, I’m not certain whether that was addressed or not,” Mueller said when asked by Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., about a distinction between domestic and foreign targeting. Graves followed up asking whether “from a historical perspective,” the federal government has “the ability to kill a U.S. citizen on United States soil or just overseas.”
“I’m going to defer.

Obama wants to take your guns if you visit the wrong websites

When scouting out the internet, best not to have a fat finger and hit the wrong website. Fortunately, Obama will be gone in a few months. Just in time. First we had shelter in place. Americans apparently will willingly huddle in their homes. Now the next effort will be to restrict one’s gun rights if one visits the wrong website. Is this really where we want to go? Both sound like this is good for us doesn’t it? By the way, Mr. President, the reason that we are buying guns like crazy is because we know you want our guns.

President Obama suggested the equivalent of a no-fly list for guns on Wednesday, saying that people who are suspected of being terrorist sympathizers should be denied the right to bear arms even if they are not convicted or accused of a crime.

“We’ve got people who we know have been on ISIL websites living here in the United States, U.S. citizens,” Obama said during a PBS NewsHour appearance, using an acronym for the Islamic State terror group. “And we’re allowed to put them on the no-fly list when it comes to airlines, but because of the National Rifle Association I cannot prohibit them from buying a gun.”

When asked why he wants to restrict gun access for all owners, rather than just bad actors, President Barack Obama said, “It’s just not true. …There have been more guns sold since I’ve been president than just about any time in U.S. history.”

He spoke at a town hall in Elkhart, Indiana, in June. President Barack Obama’s statement came in response to an audience member who asked why he supported policies to restrict firearm access for law-abiding citizens.

“Why then do you and Hillary want to control and restrict and limit gun manufacturers, gun owners, and the responsible use of guns and ammunition to the rest of us, the good guys, instead of holding the bad guys responsible for their actions?” the man asked.

The man pointed out that Chicago, Obama’s former home town, has some of the highest levels of gun violence in the nation despite its stringent gun laws.

Obama: America’s Founding Fathers Were Conspiracy Nuts

When the man starts to stutter it is the “tell” that he lying. This short clip sums up the whole miserable Town Hall. Meanwhile the world burns, but no need to discuss that.

If Obama wanted to assure people that he wasn’t a crazy idiot or a tyrant, he probably shouldn’t have smugly smirked about the American founding as an example of a “conspiracy theory” of Americans paranoid about a tyrannic government.

H/T:Right Scoop

Oh, and hey moron, just because you haven’t been able to do something in 7 years doesn’t mean you wouldn’t happily do it if it wasn’t for Americans preventing you from doing it. What a stupid stupid man.

Will taking an anxiety pill let Obama take your guns?

Strange isn’t it? I posted the intent to limit our guns the first time back exactly two years ago. Obama has never been shy at telegraphing what he has in mind regarding destroying our rights. In return, we as American voters have done our best to install a defense via the GOP. First the Tea Party develops, then we take the House, the Senate, and the moribund Grand Old Party does nothing but join the Democrats in our demise. Keep in mind, Obama said his “orders” would be coming out over the next couple of weeks. He is not done with us yet.

Recall New York takes guns away from 34,500 without due process
Here (2014).

But this little number may be starting us on the worst of it. Why did he take so long in moving forward? That is the question.

Obama to tighten Gun Control for those who ever took an anxiety pill? 

We saw this freight train coming now didn’t we? So now Eric Holder and the DOJ will comb our prescription plans which they will secure from the Insurance company no doubt, and put everyone on the watch list who ever took a medication for a non physical condition. You betcha. Which is estimated to be about 25 percent of the population.

The Obama administration quietly released a press statement,

The Department of Justice is proposing to change rules for the federal background check system to clarify who under U.S. law is prohibited from possessing a firearm because of mental health problems.

…..confirming President Obama will be signing two new executive actions defining who can buy a gun based on mental health issues.

Earlier this year, the State of New York used similar mental health regulations to classify anxiety as a mental health issue. Because of that, anyone who has ever reported feeling anxious could be at risk of losing their 2nd amendment rights. In fact, there are already a number of cases making their way through the court system in New York, where people actually lost their rights because they were prescribed anti-anxiety medications.

Since almost 25% of the population now takes anti-anxiety / depression medications, almost a quarter of the country could be at risk of being labeled mentally unfit to own a firearm, if these same policies take hold at a federal level.

They’ve already started going after Vets with these regulations.

The restrictions will try to limit who can buy a gun, based on past mental health issues. The new mental health restrictions, which are being enforced as regulations through the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services, will allow the government to get around certain privacy laws so they can access your private medical records. It also allows them to yet again sidestep congress.

One of regulations allows the feds to access your private medical records to determine your “mental stability” in relation to owning a firearm. If you are found to be mentally unstable, the Justice Department can then deny your right to own a firearm.  But the problem really comes from who’s defining what “mentally unstable” actually means.

Obama considering reaching for that Pen on gun control

No sooner had I read that Hillary Clinton: “I am going to get those guns out of people’s hands” from over at America’s Watchtower – by Executive action by golly if required, well good ole Hussein said now isn’t that a swell idea, and started reaching for that Pen and Phone. Hint: Keep your eye on ammo. An easier route.

The White House is considering whether President Obama can take executive action to enforce stronger gun control measures, White House spokesman Joshua Earnest said on Monday.

“The president has frequently pushed his team to consider a range of executive actions that could more effectively keep guns out of the hands of criminals and others who shouldn’t have access to them,” Earnest said Monday. “That’s something that is ongoing here.”

Earnest was responding to questions from reporters following Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s announcement that she would consider executive action to expand background checks on gun buyers by closing the so-called gun show loophole.

Clinton’s move marks the second time she has said she will consider going farther than the Obama administration by taking unilateral action on hot-button issues. She has already said that she would expand on Obama’s unilteral actions granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens if Congress fails to pass immigration reform.

Guns? So just what is it you are proposing?

This is a different kind of video for a Saturday. The left screeches that something has to be done about guns after the recent violence. This riff done over at MSNBC should bring a chuckle. When pressed on exactly what should be done, the wandering spin begins.

National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke gently makes the same point by pressing Mark Halperin and then Mika Brzezinski to explain their policy ideas when both demand action. The result is the same in both cases — they fume, they growl about Congress, but they have no proposals of their own (via the Free Beacon and Jazz):

Vet sought treatment for ‘Insomnia’, NY police takes his guns

So you took a Vicodin 15 years ago when you had some surgery? Great news, you could be considered a “Mental defective” by the office of Mental Hygiene in Suffolk County New York. A feel good story to get the New Year off to a great start.

U.S. Navy veteran and retired police officer Donald Montgomery is suing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other officials after his firearms were reportedly confiscated by police after he sought treatment for insomnia.

Consider Nassau County, a populous suburban county eastof New York City. The Nassau  Department (ncpd) oversees the issuance of handgun licenses which must be renewed every five years. Last year, the ncpd added a new question to the application:

“Have you used or still use [sic]
narcotics, tranquilizers or antidepressant
medication? If yes, record
doctor’s name, address and phone
number, (attach).” A list of all relevant
medications is required.
In reality, these categories of
drugs—narcotics, tranquilizers and
anti-depressants—are so broad that
almost every adult could be identified
as a potentially dangerous drug user
through this question.

Read more here with what is covered and how it works.

Here we go with a prime example of how the Office of Mental Hygiene completes Gun Control.

It all started after Montgomery visited his primary care physician on May 6 and complained about trouble sleeping, the Daily Caller reported. He claimed to have been suffering from insomnia since moving from a different state. Montgomery then returned to the hospital again days later for the same problems, except this time he was diagnosed with “Depression; Insomnia” by hospital staff.

On May 23, Montgomery returned to the hospital yet again with the same symptoms. He reportedly stayed at the hospital for 48 hours voluntarily for treatment.

Under New York’s SAFE Act, mental health professionals are required to report patients who are determined to be threats to themselves or others. Regardless, the lawsuit claims the veteran was cleared.

“Patient has no thoughts of hurting himself. Patient has no thoughts of hurting others. Patient is not having suicidal thoughts. Patient is not having homicidal thoughts,” the hospital notes from the visit allegedly said.

Montgomery was said to be “mildly depressed” by hospital officials, but they found “no evidence of any psychotic processes, mania, or OCD symptoms.” The notes also asserted, “Insight, judgment, and impulse control are good.”

Still, Montgomery’s records were forwarded to Mental Hygiene Legal Service for further review.

The Daily Caller outlines what happened next:

Four days after leaving the hospital, New York State police sent a letter to the Suffolk County clerk’s office stating “has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been involuntarily committed to a mental institution” and that he was prohibited from possessing any firearms.

The next day, Montgomery received a call from an officer at the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department informing him that his guns would have to be confiscated.

Montgomery says that on May 30, the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department showed up to his house and confiscated his pistol license and four handguns — Colt .38 revolver, Derringer .38, Glock 26 9mm, Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380.
