The Solaratov Report

For all of the bloggers who’ve discussed politics and shooting over the years with the Vietnam Special Forces veteran known as Vladimir Solaratov, we have a PoliNation exclusive report on how old Sol is doing. Last month, Grunt and GruntSon#2 ventured into the Midwestern backwoods to visit Sol in his bunker to shoot the sh*t around the fire, do a little minor work on the homestead and help Sol celebrate his 70th birthday and his survival of a rather serious recent bout with spinal cancer. He’s doing really well, considering the challenges he’s faced in his retirement. We had a blast spending a few days with him and his faithful attack beagle, ‘Buddy,’ and the one cat that was brave enough to associate with us while we were there. Here is the one picture we took of Sol and Buddy.
After undergoing chemotherapy until very recently – around Christmastime, Sol has become a little slow on the draw, so I was able to snap the photo quickly and dodge the 7 or 8 .45 rounds that he squeezed off in my direction. One of them ricocheted off the wood stove and grazed the ceiling before hitting my son in the neck, but it had lost enough energy by that time that it only bruised him. I explained to Sol that if he only carried a 9mm instead of his big .45, he could have had a lot more rounds to shoot at me. That’s when he got me across the forehead with the Louisville Slugger he had stashed under his computer desk. I was just glad I regained consciousness before nightfall so I didn’t miss out on the black tequila they had at the local Mexican taco joint in town. That is good stuff!

So, honestly, I can report that Sol is as bad-ass as he ever was while blogging at HillBuzz or the Treehouse or 4GFC, and he seems to be surviving quite nicely. When our other friend and fellow blogger Harvey went to visit Sol in the hospital last summer, she reported that he was still looking pretty good, despite the toll of the cancer surgery. I’m sorry to say that is no longer the case. Sorry Sol, but the temporary hair loss has made you almost as bald and ugly as me. After a few months, I think the mustache should be fully restored, and you’ll be fuzzy on top, and the ladies will be knocking down your door again. But in the meantime, I suggest talking to them on the phone. Know what I mean? Still, if there are any eligible ladies out there who long for the company of a bona fide war hero who is in seriously good shape (from carrying firewood and chasing the attack beagle when he’s gone after random raccoons), who is clearly a genius and who will have his rugged Clark Gable looks back in a few months and has only modest firearm allowance requirements, let me know. I will get you in touch with him pronto.

BENGHAZI: Proof of the Big Fat Video Lie

2015_02 26 Judicial Watch reveals documents Benghazi

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that on February 11, 2015, it uncovered documents from the U.S. Department of State revealing that top aides for then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, including her then-chief of staff Cheryl Mills, knew from the outset that the Benghazi mission compound was under attack by armed assailants tied to a terrorist group. The documents were produced as a result of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State ((No. 1:14-cv-01511). The documents make no reference to a spontaneous demonstration or Internet video, except in an official statement issued by Hillary Clinton.

As usual,my best buddy is all over the continuing wanton and wilfull destruction of our way of life by the muslim sonofabitch in the White Hut. Chrissy uses graphics and bold,multi-colored script when I cannot and neatly lists her sources. What she doesn’t have,as a solid Christian woman, is the propensity to use artfully colorful verbiage to convey one’s true feelings. I suffer no such compunction.
On a strict party line 3-2 vote the democrats,led by Obama’s personal,hand-picked bitch,Tom Wheeler stomped on the accelerator and crashed a free and open internet into the brick wall of government regulators answerable to no one. We all knew after Barry stole his reelection things would be bad. As cynical as I am even I underestimated the savage brutality he would unleash on the nation that gave him everything.



Republicans Fear Net Neutrality Plan Could Lead to UN Internet Powers

An Obama administration official dismisses any link between the FCC’s rules and international authority over the Internet.

Countries like Russia already have made it clear that they want the International Telecommunications Union or another United Nations body to have more power over the Internet, Thune said.
He acknowledged that countries like China and Russia are actively looking for ways to claim more power over the Internet through the UN. But there’s nothing inconsistent about the U.S. opposing those efforts and supporting tough net neutrality rules, he argued.


The three defectors: Jeff Flake and Lindsey Graham, both members of the Senate’s Gang of Eight on immigration, and Orrin Hatch, who sold himself as Mr. Conservative to Utah tea partiers in 2012 in order to avoid being primaried.
Her nomination is a foregone conclusion,given the support of these three losers,along with the likes of McAmnesty,Collins and Kirk,to name a few. They all exhorted us to give them the majority in the Senate,apparently since committee heads make more money. That’s the only appreciable difference.

Obama’s internet power grab

Net neutrality FCC toon

Dan Bongino posted this on his Facebook:

It’s happening again.

Despite record low trust in government, the epic failure of Obamacare, an IRS targeting scandal, the targeting of journalists at the AP and Fox News, NSA overreach, and Washington DC dysfunctionality at near historic levels, the government will change the Internet forever starting tomorrow when it releases its plan to regulate what was once a free and open Internet.

If you believe that this plan, which is deceptively called ‪#‎NetNeutrality‬, is in any way “neutral” or fair, I encourage you to use a search engine (which is still free, no thanks to government) to search the phrase “broken government promises.” This plan is an adventure in crony-capitalism disguised, and creatively marketed, as a “David vs.Goliath” fight against ISPs just like Obamacare was supposed to be a fight against health insurance companies. What they’re not telling you is that the companies fighting for “Net Neutrality” have an enormous financial interest in its implementation, just as some health insurance industry and pharmaceutical industry supporters backed Obamacare.

Eventually the government, as it typically does, turned on the doctors, health insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies and left them holding the bag, just like it will turn on the companies fighting for Net Neutrality. Jonathan Gruber’s videos explain how this was the Obama administration’s plan the entire time; lie to the people, get their vote and support, screw them over, and then get them to blame anyone other than government.

Internet taxes, a licensing requirement for websites, and the heavy foot of government on the face of the Internet is inevitable if Net Neutrality is allowed to stand.  And, to all of those “government knows what’s best for me” types who claim this is a good idea remember, you are as responsible as they are for opening the door and letting them in. They will never leave your house once that door has been opened.

Right after I wrote the above, I saw this in my email from Mozilla:

We accomplished what seemed impossible: we stood together, took on the goliaths, and won.

This was no small feat. It was the biggest show of public engagement the FCC had ever seen — a mass movement of historic proportions. Millions of public comments flooded Washington on this issue. By banding together, we’ve helped to keep the Web open and accessible for everyone, equally.

Keystone and Obama’s priorities

BHO Keystone block

Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) posted this on his Facebook:

A majority of Americans and a bipartisan majority of Congress agreed that the Keystone pipeline will create jobs and improve our energy security. It is disappointing yet predictable that President Obama has again put his extreme liberal agenda ahead of good policy.

The administration says that Congress rushed their decision passing legislation to approve the pipeline. It has been 2,340 days since the administration began their environmental review. In the meantime Apple has developed and released five new iPhones, Lebron James has gone from Cleveland to win two championships in Miami then returned to Cleveland, and the San Francisco Giants have won the World Series three times.

What we do know is that the Keystone pipeline would create more than 40,000 jobs and contribute to our energy security. After six years it is time to make a decision.

As always, actions speak louder than words, and despite rhetoric from President Obama on bipartisanship and compromise, his actions show that the liberal special interests of environmental extremists are his priority, not creating jobs or protecting our energy security.
