NFL to hire ex-ATF boss Todd Jones

Roger Goodell has informed NFL owners that Todd Jones, the former Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, will soon join the league as Special Counsel for Conduct, a league source confirmed to ESPN.

Jones is a former U.S. Attorney for Minnesota and was a Marine infantry officer.

Lisa Friel, a former New York District Attorney’s office sex crimes prosecutor, was also named NFL Special Counsel for Investigations.

According to a source, Goodell decided to split the role for the NFL’s conduct czar. Jones will apply and administer the personal conduct policy that applies to all NFL employees, while Friel will professionalize the investigations process.

Jones’ pending appointment by the NFL was reported earlier Monday by the New York Post.

Coming soon to the NFL players conduct guide book:  “You are required to sell guns to Mexican dope cartels.”

And also, you in the NFL are going to find out why we call him B. Toad Jones.





But He Won’t Be Worried Long

Washington, D.C.

Breitbart:

Former Senior White House advisor Dan Pfeiffer admits that one of President Obama’s angriest moments in the White House was after the Senate blocked his push for gun control.

At a time when the Democrats ran the Senate.

But he has nothing to worry about now. He has a pen and phone, and Congress is no impediment to him, in spite of the fact that the upper chamber is now run by the supposed opposition party.

“I think one of the most angry I’ve seen him was after the Senate failed to pass background checks in 2013,” Pfeiffer explained in an interview with broadcaster Charlie Rose.

Pfeiffer admitted that the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting was one of the most “emotional” moments in Obama’s presidency thus far. The Senate’s refusal to act on any form of gun control, however, infuriated the president.

Newtown happened because of the lack of a “universal background check,” (The nutbar failed a background check when he tried to buy for himself, so that’s why he stole his mother’s guns, and his mother did pass the background check), or was it because some publicity and infamy seeking omega male video game addicted SSRI junkie nutbar/dweeb wanted to go out in a blaze of “glory?” Hell, even Baraq Obama has enough sense never to name the nutbar in public.

Obama could have had his precious “universal background check” if he and the Democrats were willing to do a little compromising. But, contra Pfeiffer, I think Obama wanted the issue for 2014 more than he wanted a bill to sign.

Personally, I’d be for a well written well thought out universal background check bill, for two main and perhaps contradictory reasons: One, it’ll wind up shoveling more blacks into Federal prison, and two, it’ll get the issue off the table and show the world that universal background checks aren’t the utopian panacea that certain people would like to think it is.





Don’t Give Up, Just Give Up

ATF backs down, for now.

Because I think this proposed regulation was Obama creating a bargaining chip for himself, I wonder what the Republicans are secretly giving up in the QPQ.

The Blaze:

“As long as you can go in some neighborhoods and it is easier for you to buy a firearm than it is for you to buy a book, there are neighborhoods where it is easier for you to buy a handgun and clips than it is for you to buy a fresh vegetable, as long as that’s the case, we’re going to continue to see unnecessary violence,” Obama said in a response to a question at the town hall meeting at Benedict College.

That’s because ooks don’t read, and food is what comes from the 365BellCurve fast feeder.  Meanwhile, they need plenty of firearms in order to keep it real.

“I thought after what happened at Sandy Hook would make us think about it,” Obama said. “You would have thought that’s got to be enough of a motivator. But we couldn’t get it done.”

Obama is not aware that a lot of black people have noticed that he only gets on this gun kick when the “gun crimes” involve white (or so) upper middle class (or so) blue state and blue area white people, but when ook murders ook with gun, he doesn’t much care.  I’ve said several times in this space that the reason Newtown was so important to the media was because the Nutmeg Nutbar of Newtown reminded so many media people of their own late teens early twenties sons.

“…People say we should have … machine guns in bars…”

Blame the rednecks for ook crime.





Bargaining Chip

4 03 2015

Washington, D.C.

Washington Examiner:

Police say Obama bullet ban isn’t needed, AR-15 round isn’t a threat

A top police representative on Tuesday said that there is no history of criminals using a round popular among AR-15 rifle shooters against officers, undermining the Obama administration’s argument for banning the 5.56 M855 “lightgreen tip.”

“Any ammunition is of concern to police in the wrong hands, but this specific round has historically not posed a law enforcement problem,” said James Pasco, executive director of the Washington office of the Fraternal Order of Police, the world’s largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers, with more than 325,000 members.

He told Secrets that the round used mostly for target practice “is not typically used against law enforcement.”

Now I think I have it figured out.  Obama is having the ATF flood the zone with proposed administrative regulations in order to use them as bargaining chips to get Congress to pass a universal background check.





Prosecutorial Discretion

28 02 2015

Downtown

One of my two favorite judges on the 22nd uses Amendment 5 to throw out a state felon-in-possession case.

There’s still the matter of the Feds, and it makes me wonder why they haven’t swooped in.

As I’m reading all this, then thinking about the Feds, I wonder to myself:  Isn’t the concept of prosecutorial discretion supposed to be the in thing these days?

UPDATE 3/3

There’s another thing.  For almost seven months now, that’s all we’ve heard from certain people and institutions in this town — A constant conga line of “disparate,” “disproportionate,” “gap.”  So the one time a black criminal defendant catches a break, he catches it from one of the most conservative judges in the 22nd Circuit, and self-styled “liberals” and Democrats are the ones bitching that it shouldn’t have happened.





Pincher Movement

26 02 2015

USA

The “Ammo Pincher Movement,” while it is old news, i.e. it’s a few weeks old, has finally made it to the Drudge-Rush conveyor belt.

However, they are only seeing half the story.  A pincher movement is a high-low coalition against the middle, pressure from above hooking up with pressure from below.  In this case, this move on common rifle ammo for its armor piercing capabilities is the pressure from below.  There is pressure from above, that being to prohibit lead ammunition of all sorts because it’s supposedly bad for the environment.

Applying the Sailerian Dialectic here, it’s just another front in the war that urban white liberals have on rural white people.  The more urban white liberals scream in their own ears and other people’s ears about the evil rural white rednecks with AR-15s, the more they can distract themselves and everyone else from their own ethnic cleansing against the black undertows in their own cities, and also from the fact that it’s the dweeb gelding video game addicted SSRI junkie gamma male sons of these same urban white liberals that are the ones shooting up schools.
