Reason.TV: Kennedy on Girls, Guns, and The Problem with DC Firearm Laws!

Girls, Guns, and The Problem with DC Firearm Laws

Published on Jun 5, 2012 by ReasonTV

"Gun ownership goes up, crime goes down...that's how it works," explains Washington Times senior editor and recent gun owner Emily Miller.

After being the victim of a home invasion, Miller was determined to take advantage of the 2008 Supreme Court ruling striking down Washington, D.C.'s handgun ban. Miller initially thought the process of purchasing a firearm "would just be a hassle for a couple of weeks," and decided to blog her experiences at washingtontimes.com. After four months, countless headaches, and hundreds of dollars in fees, Miller is now legally able to own her Sig Sauer P229 9mm, so long as she keeps it in her home.

Miller joined Kennedy at Sharp Shooters in Lorton, VA to discuss DC's Byzantine gun laws, the surge in female gun ownership, and how she choose her firearm.

About 3 minutes.

ALWAYS a sprinkle of dis-info in the mix

They never miss an opportunity to groom the sheeple.

If the Navy SEALS killed Osama, I'll eat that gun.

If she wants to keep it real, she should run out and get an M-4 like the one used to double-tap Pat Tillman in the forehead.


well, the writer Emily Miller is a statist hack for Rev.Sung Young Moon owned Washington Times.

Then again, don't know what the pay structure is, or whether it's a purely non-pay contribution site, but our very own Tom Mullen also contributes to their Communities.WashingtonTimes.com which I guess is their 'blogger-OpEd.'

I'm sure OBL who died around 2001 according to CIA's own intel which stated that OBL was in Dubai getting treatment for his Marfan Syndrome as well as getting kidney dialysis treatment, in his last dying days, was feeling the Navy DEVGRU's SiG P226 NAVY's 9mm rounds rushing to him... from his grave. LOL!


Sure, a 6'5"~6'7" Saudi who suffers from kidney disease AND a certain death sentence, aka Marfan Syndrome, from a hidden AfPak cave took down a $44BILLION+ US Intelligence establishment and $2TRILLION+ US Military by commanding/controlling a global network of POTUS Carter's NSA Zbiegniew Brezezinski's CIA funded and established Mujahadeen Islamist mercenary network aka Al-CIA-duh, who on the morning of 9/11/2011 could infiltrate/knew enough about US Military's internal drill schedule to perfectly time and take down/hijack the NORAD Command's communications systems to order stand downs (power illegally transferred to DipSh*t Dickhead Cheney at the time) and sent out sorties to ANYWHERE BUT Boston, NYC, and DC, just as they were holding the same exact military drill scenarios concocted by Army War College braintrust which 'duh, what a coinky-dink' that consisted of hijacked commercial airliners being used as missiles to target America's critical and symbolic infrastructures, and like alchemy, that's how the REAL events on 9/11 actually 'just happened' to have unfolded, just like EXACTLY like their military drills that morning.

Anyone interested in buying that Straight-to-DVD z-grade film script??

The other piece of the OBL puzzle? Iridium:

OBL's brother or some other family member actually SAT ON THE CORPORATE BOARD of the then new tech firm spun off from the heavily Military Industrial Complex connected Hughes Electronics: Iridium Satellite Phone systems.

And WHERE is Iridium located? McClean, Virginia, in Fairfax County, the Bankster+intel+Military Industrial Complex Contractor+Diplomats+Govt scums+NWO Globalist capital of the world, also the recent home of Bilderberg 2012 in Chantilly, VA:

McLean is home to many diplomats, members of Congress, and high-ranking government officials partially due to its proximity to Washington, D.C. and the Central Intelligence Agency. It is also the location of Hickory Hill, the former home of Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert F. Kennedy and Salona, the former home of Henry "Light Horse Harry" Lee, the Revolutionary War hero. It was to Salona that First Lady Dolley Madison fled in 1814 when British troops were burning the White House.

Located between the George Washington Parkway and the town of Vienna, McLean is known for its many upscale homes, as well as for its high-end shopping, such as the nearby Tysons Corner Center and Tysons Galleria. Land values in McLean are among the highest in the Washington area.

Several major companies are or have been headquartered in McLean including Booz Allen Hamilton; Capital One; Cardinal Bank; Freddie Mac; Gannett; Hilton Hotels Corporation; Mars; MicroStrategy; Primus Telecom; Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC); Sunrise Senior Living, and USA Today. It is also the location where Apple Inc. opened their first retail store in 2001.

Now, OBL absolutely had a satellite phone as all NSA/CIA/FBI's own publicly released intel records indicate. Now, according to Iridium's own records, their service went online in November 1st, 1998, in fact the FIRST Satellite Phone call was made by none other than Al 'Man-bear' Gore:

Iridium SSC, Iridium communications service was launched on November 1, 1998. The first Iridium call was made by then-Vice President of the United States Al Gore.[1] Motorola provided the technology and major financial backing.[2] The logo of the company was designed by Landor Associates, and represents the Big Dipper.[3] In 2008, as part of a rebranding campaign the word mark would be de-capitalized.

Now, even then cell phones obviously weren't as prevalent and as ubiquitous as they are today; people were still using pagers for crying out loud, I'd know because I was one of them! And the most advanced cellphones at the time were still chunky mini-bricks the size of a typical, bulkier TV remote. So as one may presume, the global market for Satellite phones were only in the mere one THOUSAND-ish?, if not much, much less (could be in the few 100's, but I wasn't able to track down a solid number).

Majority of Iridium customers were in fact GOVT, Military, and major Wall St. high rollers, to the expedition adventurers and scientists in the most remote regions of the world like Antarctica, and... Osama Bin Ladin.

So, obviously, considering their major customer was in fact the US Govt and the US Military, and the US Intelligence services like the CIA, NSA, NRO, and the FBI, one would have to be deluded and utterly naive to not think it'd be ridiculously easy to track OBL, even IF you were to buy their fairytale that OBL, aka Tim Osman 'didn't' work for CIA.

But here's where the govt's fairytale about how they had difficulty tracking OBL via his satellite phone later, falls apart:

1. Iridium satellite phone services first launched in Nov. 1, 1998.

Iridium was the world's first commercial satellite phone service to offer planetary coverage. So if you were using a satellite phone in 1998, you HAD to be using an Iridium service sat.phone. And, thus, Iridium WAS THE SERVICE Osama bin Ladin was using, there's no dispute in that fact. ZERO dispute:


2. Yet, according to the Fed. Govt's OWN account, apparently OBL started and stopped using satellite phones... before there EVER WERE satellite phone service! LOL! Govt says that Osama's sat. phone usage dropped dramatically after August 21, 1998, and STOPPED using sat.phone altogether on October 9, 1998!!!

So Nov. 1, 1998 is when Iridium's 1st satellite phone services launched, yet, apparently OBL' been using them WAAAAAAY before August 21, 1998???

Zabel and Benjamin take on the Bin Laden satellite phone story, citing published and court records showing that bin Laden stopped using the phone Oct. 9, 1998 and that the phone’s use “dropped off dramatically after Aug. 21, 1998,” the day after the U.S. launched a cruise missile attack aimed at killing Bin Laden in Afghanistan. Britain’s Scotland Yard had seized phone records from a Bin Laden associate Sept. 23, 1998, the report says, and the records weren’t the subject of testimony until more than two years later, at the trial of defendants charged in the bombing of U.S. embassies in Africa.

Even according Wall St. Journal, the govt's story is shoddy; the govt's purported date of OBL's cessation of satellite phone is dubious:

Tracking Use of Bin Laden’s Satellite Phone

By Mary Lu Carnevale | May 28, 2008, 4:17 PM

It’s one of those often-repeated cautionary tales in the war on terrorism: al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden stopped using a satellite phone after an associate’s phone records were introduced as evidence in a New York trial.

The story has circulated for years, mostly by those who argue the government’s secretive and extrajudicial methods to combat terrorism are essential. But a new report by two former federal prosecutors in New York found the Bin Ladin satellite phone story is dubious.

Richard B. Zabel and James J. Benjamin, now lawyers with Akin Gump LLP, produced the report for Human Rights First, an organization that argues the judicial system can handle most complex terrorism cases without the need for military commissions or extra-judicial detentions.

And apparently, a few other MSM outlets as well. Guess what I get when I googled "Number of Satellite Phone Usage in 1998"? OBL's sat.phone story is the primary result!


So many hilarious LIES, yet so many deaths committed by these murderous jokers...

Absolutely disgusting.
