  • Liberals Freak Out As House Approves Nationwide Concealed Carry Reciprocity

    SHTF Plan ^ | 1-30-2017 | Mac Slavo
    The House Judiciary Committee voted 19-11 late Wednesday for the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. This bill would amend the federal criminal code to allow the concealed carry of guns across state lines for all concealed carry permit holders. Should this bill become a law, states will not be able to impose their individual requirements for a concealed carry license on those who have a license to conceal in a different state. The left is already terrified. Republicans rejected Democratic amendments that would ban violent offenders from qualifying under the law (because violent offenders cannot obtain a concealed carry...
  • Net Neutrality Laws on the Brink – Here’s the Reality

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    We are hearing arguments for and against the rollback of the Net Neutrality laws, but what is the reality. And more importantly, why are we ignoring the other 30 plus countries in the world that have already tried this? As FCC chairman Ajit Pai seeks to repeal the latest regulations on how the internet can be delivered, it seems that not a single person involved in the debate is putting forward a solid argument one way or the other. It is clearly not because they don’t know them (they’re not that hard to find), so could it be because they...

    There are many people taking notice of modern politics for the first time in their lives. There is also some confusion noticed between two groups who talk above and around each other. Two groups communicating from two entirely different sets of understanding. Perhaps it is valuable to reset the larger frames of reference and provide clarity. Many, heck, most people think when they vote for a federal politician -a representative- they are voting for a person who will go to Washington DC and write or enact legislation. This is the old-fashioned “schoolhouse rock” perspective based on decades past. There is...

    President Trump's suggestion that NBC should potentially have its broadcast license challenged has prompted a wave of condemnation from both sides of the aisle, with many saying that such a move would violate the First Amendment. Trump lashed out at NBC News on Wednesday after the outlet reported that Trump had suggested increasing the nation's nuclear arms stockpile during a meeting with top Cabinet officials. "With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!" Trump tweeted.
  • Nevada Gun Laws

    10/11/2017 6:22:20 AM PDT · by 7thson · 25 replies
    There is no limit on bulk purchases, amounts of ammunition, or magazine sizes. A gun dealer also does not have to comply with law enforcement; police inspections of Nevada gun shops are not allowed by state law. Many gun control activists believe the absence of regulations on dealers combined with the constant flow of tourism attribute to Nevada's bleak murder numbers. Since 2000, Nevada has had on average 27 gun related deaths per 100,000 people annually, by far the most in the US.

    Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews says his office is working to identify individuals who pulled down the Confederate statue on Durham County property Monday night. Andrews’ statement comes amid reports that sheriff’s officials were present when the statue was pulled down, videoing the act but not intervening to stop it or arrest those doing it. Breitbart News reported that protesters placed a tow rope around the neck and shoulder of a Confederate statue and pulled it down from atop the monument on which it stood. WNCN reports that protesters took turns kicking the statue once it was on the ground,...

    Newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has posted his support for stringent gun-control laws – a position that would be at odds with President Trump’s views. “I have always been for strong gun control laws,” Scaramucci tweeted after the December 2012 shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 kids were gunned down. In August 2012, he tweeted: “We (the USA) has 5% of the world’s population but 50% of the world’s guns. Enough is enough. It is just common sense it apply more controls.”

    Back before the Industrial Revolution most people were rural, and they lived off the land. Families took care of their aging families. Parents had big farm houses that encompassed not only Mom, Dad, and children, but Grandma and Grandpa were a part of the mix…possibly even Aunt Hilda if she needed a roof over her head. The whole family worked together to make the living. Even little Johnny had his chore of feeding the chickens. His little sister gathered the eggs, and Mama fixed them for breakfast. Meanwhile, Daddy had already gotten up at the crack of dawn to build...

    The Conservative think tank, Just facts, has released the results of a long running study into whether or not voter fraud from non US citizens actually takes place. Up until now, the MSM and especially the previous government have followed “the truth” of an old report that stated “zero people out of 18 million in the US have voted illegally”. But more in-depth research now suggest that of 7.2 million non-US citizens who are illegally (or mistakenly ) registered to vote, a potential 5.7 million could have cast ballots in the 2008 Presidential election. When Barack Obama said “Of course...

    Austria has passed laws that mean from October the Burqa and Niqab will be illegal to wear in public; and that new arrivals must take 12 months of language and culture classes or risk losing their state benefits. The whole project is aimed at “helping Muslims integrate”, but it is a sham. It will not work, and worse, it is not designed to work; the real purpose is to shut down votes for parties that might actually make a difference. There have been outcries from both ends of the political spectrum. The Green Party are claiming that it is a...

    The European Union has rejected Donald Trump’s offer to renegotiate the Paris Treaty, proving it was always about bleeding the U.S. dry and appointing globalists as our governing bodies. The Paris climate agreement is written so as to be an endless drain on the U.S. economy. If they cared about the climate, they’d work with us. It doesn’t help that we have traitors within our own country. The leftists in this country will be not be dissuaded. A corrupt deal has been worked out with U.S. states and major corporations who will betray the President of the United States. New...

    New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) warned Congress on Friday that he would file a lawsuit to protect abortion rights if the Senate passes the House GOP's healthcare bill. In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, Schneiderman attacked the bill, called the American Health Care Act, as "bad public policy." "It doesn't protect people with pre-existing conditions, it will cost millions of people healthcare," he said. Schneiderman said that the bill in its current form is unconstitutional due to attacks on "prohibited state funding." "In a tricky way, [it] tries to wipe out Planned Parenthood," he said. "It's an...

    Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the vice chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, said that he foresees some conservatives coming out against a proposed government spending bill set to come out later this week. “I mean, look, money goes to Planned Parenthood as you said,” Jordan said to host Chris Cuomo. “Money continues to go to sanctuary cities but no money for the border wall. I think you’re going to see a lot of conservatives be against this plan this week.”

    A report from Bloomberg highlights the anxiety within the professional state department apparatus as Secretary Tillerson begins substantive cuts in the number of pontificating elitist bureaucrats. It’s amazing how the ankle-biters never seem to recognize these consequential shifts in policy and approach toward dismantling the bureaucracy. The State Department is the cornerstone of Deep State operations. It is a massively bloated institution filled with some of the most entrenched political globalists and ideologues. Trump is no longer playing only with evil and cunning players who are still predictable, easily beatable dopes, like Hillary. He is playing against killers, with his...

    In Part I we explained why President Trump has not received any legislation: To Wit: President Donald Trump winning the election threw a monkey wrench into the entire DC system…. The modern legislative machine is frozen in place. The “America First” policies represented by candidate Donald Trump are not within the legislative constructs coming from the authors of the legislation. Congress has no bills to advance because all of the myriad of bills and briefs written are not in line with President Trump policy. That’s why congress has not passed any legislation for President Trump to sign. There’s no entity...
