  • The Party of Antifa Fascists?(ICYMI!)

    10/20/2018 7:00:53 AM PDT · by rktman · 14 replies ^ | 10/20/2018 | Paul Driessen
    They forget President Obama’s dictum: “Elections have consequences.” One is the President’s right to nominate Federal judges. But from their perspective, “consequences” must never apply when they lose – and the Electoral College must be abolished when it works as our Founding Fathers intended: to keep populous urban areas from dominating presidential elections and imposing a tyranny of the majority. (The fact that 85% of all US counties voted for Donald Trump illustrates this principle in action.) In most of these cases, “they” are the Antifa mobs. Antifa being short for “anti-fascist.” Don’t be conned. The Antifa mobs are fascists!...
  • Parkland Victim's Father to Dems: 'Go to Hell'

    Speaking in South Florida to Parkland students and parents earlier this week, House Minority Leader Pelosi called the activists a “blessing to our country,” and said that because of their energy on the issue, gun control would be a priority for Democrats should they take back the House in the midterm elections. “I admire you so much,” she said. “You have the purpose, the generosity of spirit. You have the marchers — you have people who will go out there to make a difference — and you just have a relentless, persistent, dissatisfied approach.” But not all parents of Parkland...
  • Emma Gonzalez Fears ‘Cars With Gun Stickers’ Will Run Her Off Road

    It must be exhausting. The idea that everyone is out to get you is classically thought of as extreme paranoia. However, some people probably do have some grounds to be concerned about their safety. After all, there are those in the world who receive death threats by the dozens. But even one death threat is enough to make anyone concerned. It doesn’t help when you go out of your way to piss people off, either. Perhaps that’s why anti-gun activist and Parkland kid Emma Gonzalez decided to admit that she’s terrified someone with a gun sticker on their car will...

    Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum is demanding that television stations stop airing an attack ad from his opponent that contains a number of “malicious falsehoods.” The ad was paid for by the GOP and approved by Ron DeSantis.
  • MSNBC Gives Alyssa Milano Forum to Bash Kavanaugh, Promote Abortion

    On the Thursday edition of MSNBC's The Beat, host Ari Melber showed a pre-recorded interview with liberal actress Alyssa Milano in which they discussed her recent activism against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and her support for abortion rights. Melber also repeated the flawed polling which suggests most Americans support Roe v. Wade, and brought up Milano's invoking The Handmaid's Tale about a fictional American society that oppresses women. After beginning the segment by recalling the case of an underage illegal immigrant who was delayed from getting an abortion while in detention and Milano's recent video depicting the story,...

    A group of 11 Catholic groups came together to purchase stock in Smith & Wesson. The group purchased 200 shares, the minimum number required to for shareholders to demand reports from the company. Now, they want the gun manufacturer to provide a report that details what the company is doing to promote "gun safety measures" and "produce safer gun and gun products." According to an SEC filing, which is submitted to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), here's what the group wants to see from Smith & Wesson: Shareholders request the Board of Directors issue a report by February...

    Shay Kivlen, a survivor of the tragic shooting at a Madden tournament in Jacksonville, Florida last week that left two gamers dead, has joined forces with Parkland activist Cameron Kasky and Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans to raise money for the victims’ families. Kivlen, whose gamer name is “Young Kiv” spoke with Townhall Thursday about his experience at the tournament and how people have banded together to help his gaming family in the wake of such an awful tragedy. After losing his friends and fellow gamers Elijah Clayton and Taylor Robertson in the shooting, Kivlen received an outpouring...
  • Well, NPR Just Delivered A Headshot To The Anti-Gun Left's School Shooting Narrative

    08/30/2018 7:22:00 AM PDT · by rktman · 38 replies ^ | 8/29/2018 | Matt Vespa
    So, any time there’s a mass shooting, the anti-gun Left jumps for glee: another opportunity to fundraise, attack Republicans, and make the case yet again for why we need “common sense gun control,” which really means gun bans and the repeal of the Second Amendment. They tout misinformation, push narratives with shoddy data, and partake in our favorite game: not knowing what the current gun laws are and pervasively screw up on gun lexicon. Part of it is just plain ignorance, and part of it is also refusing to accept facts that undercut the narrative. The school shootings data point...
  • Whitehouse Congress Petition Protect Free Speech in the Digital Public Square

WE THE PEOPLE ASK THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO CALL ON CONGRESS TO ACT ON AN ISSUE: Protect Free Speech in the Digital Public Square Created by W.C. on August 28, 2018 4,984 SIGNED 100,000 GOAL The internet is the modern public square. It is where political campaigns are fought and won, where journalism is created and distributed, and where grassroots movements are born. Yet, the free and open internet has become a controlled, censored space, monopolized by a few unaccountable corporations. By banning users from their platforms, those corporations can effectively remove politically unwelcome Americans from the public square....

    It seems there is less and less common ground in discourse in America anymore as the constantly redrawn battle lines move farther and farther apart, taking with them even the folks on both fringes, severely narrowing the space for what have heretofore been known as “moderates.” With the advent of the militant left, Maxine Waters et al and Andrew Cuomo’s America “was never that great” comment, the lines change again, as even would-be liberals cannot countenance the harassing of families having dinner in a public place or the fallacy that the nation that has been the savior of freedom on...
  • 3D-printed gun plans explode online (1 website logged 1.4 million requests in 3 weeks)

    08/22/2018 8:01:24 AM PDT · by rktman · 24 replies ^ | 8/21/2018 | unknown
    Plans for 3D-printed guns have spread across the internet over the past three weeks despite the efforts of a federal judge and some of the country’s largest social media companies to try to impose limits. Gun rights supporters say the online explosion — one website owner who posted the plans said his site logged 1.4 million requests over the past three weeks — shows the futility of efforts to put the genie back into the bottle. But gun control advocates are still battling and will be back in court Tuesday to ask U.S. District Judge Robert S. Lasnik to extend...

    During the August 18, 2018, airing of Breitbart News Saturday, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry explained that he chose, in part, to withhold $600 million from Citigroup and Bank of America because they are “trying to become the social police.” On August 16, 2018, Breitbart News reported Landry’s decision to withhold the $600 million, a decision shared by the Louisiana Bond Commission and State Treasurer John Schroder. The decision to withhold the money came after Citigroup and Bank of America each unilaterally placed gun control demands on their customers, going so far as to stipulate that bank-sponsored gun regulations had...
  • NYT Performs PR for Teens on Gun-Grabbing Bus Tour, Pushing Laundry List of Left-Wing Issues

    Under the pretense of journalism, reporter Maggie Astor provided some public relations with the valuable New York Times-imprimatur for the children’s crusade for gun control (and a laundry list of made-up left-wing issues like “systems of oppression”) in Thursday’s lead National story, “Speakers, Students, Activists, Survivors – On the road with teenagers from the March for Our Lives.” Both the teen activists and the supposed journalist skipped over how the massacres of students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida actually transpired, partly due to dereliction by both the Broward County sheriff’s department and the police deputy assigned...

    In a column criticizing Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s decision not to ban Alex Jones from the social media site, a writer for The Verge attacked the principle of free speech as “dangerously naive.” Laura Hudson, The Verge’s culture editor, said Twitter is wrong to believe that a free marketplace of ideas is sufficient to push back against harmful conspiracy theories. “Who doesn’t want to think that the truth will always win in the end, that information not only wants to be free, but that this freedom will lead us toward a more just world — especially when it is your...
  • Facebook Takes Their Anti-Gun Stance To a Whole New Level With THIS Policy Change(3D BS)

    The issue of 3-D printed guns has been controversial over the last few weeks. Court proceedings and lawsuits have been nonstop and it's all to answer one question: should 3-D printed guns and their data be treated as a firearm or intellectual property. Facebook has now decided to weigh in on that debate. The social media giant is now removing content that details how an individual can develop a 3-D printed gun, Reuters reported. "Sharing instructions on how to manufacture firearms using 3D printers or CNC milling machines is not allowed under our Community Standards. In line with our policies,...

    Law enforcement and city officials are preparing for protesters and counter-protesters to descend on Washington, DC, this weekend. According to the website, the Antifa side of the equation has purposes far beyond responding to the Unite the Right 2 demonstration set to take place on the Charlottesville, Va. rally anniversary on Sunday at Lafayette Park across from the White House. The National Park Service has issued a permit to Jason Kessler for his Unite the Right 2 rally from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the park and its website has a list of instructions, including warning people not to...
  • The Media Is Encouraging Violence Against Themselves

    The media keeps claiming that President Trump is encouraging violence against them. But the media are not the true victims here, and they will largely have themselves to blame if violence does befall them. Talking about Trump, MSNBC's Katy Tur said last Friday: "Yeah, we get it, you don't like us. Fine. But do you have to put our lives in danger?" After the Capital Gazette shooting in Annapolis, Maryland in June, press members and Democrat campaign officials were quick to blame it on Trump’s bashing of “fake news,” which he called the “enemy of the people.” Apologies weren’t forthcoming...

    Police in Berkeley, California, released names and headshots of individuals arrested during a Sunday protest, and Antifa and its allies are not pleased. The Berkeley Police Department published the information for 15 out of 20 individuals it arrested on its Twitter feed to much criticism from left-wing activists, reported The Guardian. Berkeley police’s tweets included arrested individuals’ names, ages, city of residence, as well as the charge on which they were arrested.

    "We have groups clearly at odds with each other," Chairman Jack Evans said. "We'd like to keep the groups separate. We don't want incidents on Metro." "Unite the Right" demonstrators plan to use Metro from the Vienna, Virginia, station to Foggy Bottom in D.C. Police and Metro are making plans to avoid a deadly confrontation like the one at the Charlottesville, Virginia, rally last year. "Maybe put all of one group on a train or a certain car on a train," Evans said. "We're trying to see how can we keep the groups separate so we don't have any incidents...

    Legal matters relating to the LGBT community have always been controversial; even so, LGBT advocates are increasingly attacking not just outspoken anti-LGBT advocates but even mainstream conservative organizations that happen to disagree with the view that homosexual marriage is on par with heterosexual relationships. In a move that is sure to alarm many in the legal community, the LGBT Bar Association has started an official petition asking members of the legal community not to cooperate with conservative legal groups that defend traditional marriage, including the Alliance Defending Freedom and Liberty Counsel. These two particular groups were likely named not just...
