Hero(s) of the Week - 12/20/14


With Boner and the guys caving to the Bamster's amnesty, then the Bamster surrendering to Cuba there wasn't too much heroic happening around the Capitol this week. That being said, there were a couple of guys that stood up and just said "NO!". These guys:


They made it as painful as possible for Harry Reid to get the latest TRILLION dollar CR passed. A CR the House leadership just handed to them. More importantly was the substance of the Point of Order they raised - namely, that the Bamster exceeded his constitutional authority and the Senate had the responsibility to not fund it. Way to go Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, you win this week's Heroes Of The Week!

Hero(s) of The Week (12/13/14)


This week we don't have much to be proud about in the Nation's Capitol with the Republican surrender in passing the Crapobus bill to continue to fund the government. However, there were a few Republicans that stood up to their leadership and almost tanked it by voting against the 'rule'. Here are those congress critters that are stood in the way of the establishment RINOs that pushed this POS through (H/T Curmudgeonly & Skeptical):


  • Congressman Amash of Michigan
  • Congresswoman Bachmann of Minnesota
  • Congressman Brat of Virgina
  • Congressman Brooks of Alabama
  • Congressman Broun of Georgia
  • Congressman Gohmert of TExas
  • Congressman Gosar of Arizona
  • Congressman Huelskamp of Kansas
  • Congressman Jones of North Carolina
  • Congressman Jordan of Ohio
  • Congressman King of Iowa
  • Congressman Labrador of Idaho
  • Congressman Massie of Kentucky
  • Congressman Posey of Florida
  • Congressman Salmon of Arizona
  • Congressman Stockman of Texas


 Congratulations Republican Congress People! You are the heroes of the week!

A little thought experiment..



I got to thinking about the Obama Amnesty thing. Well more specifically the unique way that he went about granting a path to citizenship to millions of illegals when Congress has passed no law allowing such a thing. Now that the cat is out of the bag, and there seems to be no limit on what a President can do with a cowed congress at his feet, I got to thinking: what if the shoe were on the other foot?

I know you are saying “Mike – conservatives aren’t like that! There is no way a conservative in the White House would behave in such a lawless manner”. I agree. However, for just a moment, let’s pretend that they would. Let’s say we had a conservative, someone with a fine conservative reputation but enough coolness to rival Obama or Clinton. Let’s call him President Nugent. He would be strong on the second amendment, hard on crime, and can play a wicked axe. Cool Right?

So what would President Nugent do? Well, to start, he could just tell the EPA to stop enforcing, well, everything. That would of course drive the left in the country daft. The producers in the country, no longer hamstrung by idiotic ‘CO2’ emission standard would take off. The tree huggers would pop a gasket and demand that their democrat friends impeach President Nugent. But of course they won’t.

Why not? Well, one of the reasons that The One is considered untouchable for impeachment is because of who is sitting in line behind him. As bad as The Bamster is, no one wants to see him replaced by Lunch Bucket Joe. In the same way, the democrats would never impeach President Nugent because no one, not even the most rabid democrat, would want to see Vice President Eastwood take over. It would probably be enough deterrent that when the secret service had a problem with fence jumpers, Vice President Eastwood parked himself on the front lawn with his favorite 44 Mag and a large sign that read “Go Ahead, Make My Day?”. That’s a big difference between old Joe wondering out on the front porch in a bathrobe with a shotgun.

So what other laws could President Nugent apply “prosecutorial discretion”? Well, for one thing, being a conservative, I would guess that he would choose to apply more prosecution in certain sectors rather than lighten up on them. For example, certain congressmen that are light on their tax payments would no longer get a slap on their wrist, but instead would be whisked off to Gitmo to make prayer rugs for needy terrorist. Similarly, the justice department would naturally be revamped to pursue and prosecute voter fraud. The list goes on and on.

Fun stuff to think about.. Let me be the first to call for the Nugent / Eastwood ’16 ticket!

What if..


Obama's offer to give body mounted cameras was turned around and instead all congress critters, cabinet level executive branch officials, and of course Obama and VP Biden had to wear cameras 24/7 and stream the content to the internet for all to see?

Never Forget


Hero of the Week (12/06/14)


This week's hero (H/T Weasel Zippers) proved turn about is fair play for those looking for the virgins in paradise that like a good head lopping. Lorenzo Vinciguerra, a  Swiss photographer was caught up by some island Islamos as a hostage. When the group holding him got into a tangle with some government troops, the guy took advantage of the confusion and started grappling with the guy watching him. As they struggled for control of the machete, he got a cut on his face, then managed to turn the blade on his captor, sending him to Allah via a neck slice. With that one dispatched, he made good his escape. So, here's to you Lorenzo - our Hero of the Week!

Hero Of The Week (11/29/14)


It's been a while, but this seemed like a good time to resurrect the hero of the week post, and a great candidate popped up so here it goes. This hero comes from a story in the post (H/T Instapundit) It seems like a deranged man decided get crazy and start letting bullets fly outside government buildings in Austin. Now I know it's Austin, i.e. Moscow on the Colorado, but it is still Texas, a fairly idiotic state to start being rude with a gun. Our hero here, an unidentified Austin police officer, while apparently controlling two horses with one hand, draws his weapon with the other hand and dispatches the hapless gunman with a single shot. Here's to you, unidentified Austin police officer, the GAA Hero of the Week Award!

(update 11/30/14) I got to thinking about this and had this thought. If the Texas police officer tasked with holding the horses is capable of such an amazing shot, imagine what Rangers riding the horses could do!
