  • Nadler's Frightening Abuse of Power

    When the Dear Leader of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerry Nadler, said that this was too important a matter to trust to the voters in the next election, he and his ilk gave us a frightening preview of the Gulag into which they would put We the People, should they gain full control of the government. They wrap themselves up in the Constitution but conveniently forget the first three words. They forget that the Constitution establishes three branches of government, not two. But they have no time for the courts to rule on disputed documents and privileged conversations. They...

    John Adams wrote A Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law, 1765: "The desire of dominion ... when ... restraints are taken off ... becomes an encroaching, grasping, restless, and ungovernable power ... contrived by the great for the gratification of this passion ... Originally formed ... for the necessary defense ... against ... invasions ... yet ... tyranny, cruelty, and lust ... was soon adopted by almost all the princes of Europe ...

    In response to the wave of proposed anti-gun legislation in Virginia, many of its cities and counties have declared themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries. One county, in particular, took it a step further at their December 3rd County Board of Supervisors Regular Meeting. In addition to passing their Second Amendment Sanctuary Resolution, the county also passed a Militia Resolution. This resolution formalizes the creation, and maintenance of a defacto civilian militia in the county of Tazewell. And to get a better understanding why the council members passed this resolution, Firearms News reached out to one of its members, Thomas Lester. Mr....

    Gov. Ralph Northam (D) announced Monday his “assault weapons” ban will mean AR-15 owners can either register their guns with the government or hand them over. The Virginia Mercury reported Northam spokeswoman Alena Yarmosky used a statement to say, “The governor’s assault weapons ban will include a grandfather clause for individuals who already own assault weapons, with the requirement they register their weapons before the end of a designated grace period.” Yarmosky made clear details on other gun controls will be made known before the start of the 2020 session in which Democrats take charge.

Gregg was on the USS America CV-66 when Ronald Reagan bombed Libya. This posting is a day late, given that Pearl Harbor Day was yesterday, but Gregg shared many thoughts that Americans should ponder these 78 years later.] Don’t forget to “Remember Pearl Harbor” 78 years ago today; which resulted in our last formerly declared war a day later. The results of that attack was paid back in less than four years with the total defeat...

  • Portland Considers “Mandatory Rest Spaces” For The Homeless On Private Property

    Portland, Oregon, like many cities on the left coast, is struggling with a growing homelessness crisis. But what can they do about it? One idea that’s now being floated is to change the building codes so that all new structures (including private property, not just government buildings) include spaces for people to “rest” and “feel welcome and safe.” This understandably has prospective property owners concerned, since the wording is all quite vague and suggests that they will be forced to allow the homeless to camp in and around their buildings. (KATU News) The obvious questions are already being raised....

    The more that is revealed about the deep state plotters against President Trump the more their loathsomeness is confirmed. We learned that in 2016 then FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok emailed his illicit paramour, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, to reassure her that the Agency had "an insurance policy" designed to undermine a Trump presidency. Then we learned that in January of 2017 Mark Zaid, the attorney for the "whistleblower" that sparked the House impeachment hearings against Trump, tweeted "the coup has begun." This week, Kevin Clinesmith, the FBI lawyer accused of falsifying the FISA warrant used to authorize spying on...

    Billionaire 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer says he will unify the nation behind his vision “without having to compromise with Republicans. I will be the president. Why should I compromise with the losers? They will cooperate with my policies or be completely shutout of government.” “The notion that governing requires splitting the difference between contending parties is the kind of ‘deal making’ approach that Trump has inflicted on America,” Steyer maintained. “Why should we make deals with racists? If voters make the right choices across-the-board we’ll have Democrat majorities in the House and Senate as well as own the...

    A Second Amendment Sanctuary is any locality that says it will not enforce any unconstitutional (federal or state) gun laws! Many sheriffs are going to take the County's lead on this and county police could be told not to enforce such laws either. (Law enforcement officers do not have to, and shouldn't, enforce any unconstitutional laws.) In three weeks we now have 20 Second Amendment Sanctuary counties: Appomattox Botetourt Campbell Carroll Charlotte Dickenson Dinwiddie Giles Henry King William Lee Madison Nottoway Patrick Pittsylvania Powhatan Southampton Sussex Washington Wythe A whole lot more are on the way: Accomack Amelia Amherst Augusta...

    Thanks to disgraced FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who told us in a text message that “POTUS wants to know everything we’re doing,” we know that President Obama was kept fully informed about the deep-state coup against President Trump. Liar and leaker James Clapper has thrown Obama under the bus by saying the plotters would not have proceeded without President Obama’s approval. In a CNN interview deep-state conspirator and perjurer James Clapper gave with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, he points his finger directly at Obama as leader of the coup against Donald Trump:
  • Roger Stone found guilty on all seven counts

    11/15/2019 8:59:05 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 75 replies
    Republican operative Roger Stone was found guilty on Friday of all seven counts against him, including witness tampering and making false statements. The colorful trial lasted for nearly two weeks and featured references to “The Godfather Part II,” threats of dognapping, complaints of food poisoning and a gag order. Prosecutors portrayed Stone, 67, as a serial liar who tried to bully witnesses into not cooperating with authorities. They charged Stone with making false statements, obstruction and witness tampering. The case was one of the offshoots of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and the last one referred to federal...

    It may be the most dangerous bill no one's really talking about. But if becomes law -- this radical grab bag of social extremism -- all of America will live to regret it. Meet the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). It's not just about women anymore. In fact, it's not really about women at all. How much damage can 52 words do? Trust me, you don't want to find out. The House majority's new ERA may be short, but the list of consequences is never-ending. Liberals will say it's about equality, but what it's really about is a one-way ticket to...

    I, for one, have grown weary of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), appearing on every other talk show bloviating about spygate, Ukrainegate, collusiongate, and all the wrongs committed against the Trump presidency and then doing nothing to fight back other than getting his face in front of the camera. Lindsey, do your job or get off the pot -- call some hearings, as you promised, and go for the Democrat’s jugular. Show that passion you showed during the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh when you went on an epic rant against that bevy of Democratic presidential wannabes who...

    When They Come For You: How Police and Government are Trampling Our Liberties and How To Take Them Back It goes without saying that our government is responsible for a serious erosion of our Constitutional rights in recent years. Maybe it’s more accurate to say it has often gone without saying. Some of those most outspoken, historically, on these issues remain largely silent– or even take the other side in today’s Alice in Wonderland dynamic. Author and journalist David Kirby stands up where too many stay seated with his new expose: “When They Come For You: How Police and Government...

    Buoyed by Democrats winning majorities in both houses of the state legislature, Gov. Ralph Northam promised to “immediately get to work on serious gun control legislation now that Republican obstructionists have been ousted by the voters.” A top priority target is removing so-called assault rifles from private hands. “If you listen carefully to the 2nd Amendment lobbyists’ arguments about these weapons it’s clear that their intent is to arm citizens who might object to government policies,” Northam observed. “They’re not arguing for the rights of hunters or sportsmen. They’re saying that the people ought to be armed as a guard...

    Colorado has a bear problem. Pure and simple, we have too many bears.. When I was a kid growing up .. my brother and I spent a lot of time in the woods. We were hiking, backpacking, exploring, hunting and climbing around all the time in the high country. Never once did we see a bear. I clearly recall the first time I ever saw a bear in the woods, and I was 31 years old, in 1993. Not too long after that, I took over the outfitting permits in Marble, Colorado, and I remember one day when I saw...

    Students and faculty at Western Connecticut State University were sent into a state of shock and terror when anonymous flyers saying "it's okay to be white" were found posted in various locations around the campus. University President John Clark has called for an investigation by the Danbury police, CT State Police, and the FBI, saying "this attack on our university community is the type of terrorist instigation that requires eternal vigilance." Clark rejected suggestions that he might be exaggerating the perceived threat, contending that "Hitler also started out small. He and a handful of fellow Nazis were initially scoffed at,...

    The other day, I was listening to Heather MacDonald speaking about homelessness during an appearance on City Journal’s Ten Blocks podcast. She was describing a visit to San Francisco, and it all sounded so familiar. Before I get to Heather’s riff on the homeless, I want to do a little riff of my own about the homeless and others in America’s underclass. As long-time readers know, I actually have a conduit to the homeless and the underclass. A very dear childhood friend of mine has made life choices that see her living amongst them. When I visit her, I meet...
