  • The GOP’s Gen Z Problem and Path Forward - (Niskanen Center)

    Niskanen Center ^ | June 30 2020 | BY MILEAH KROMER, MELISSA DECKMAN
    Joe Biden was hardly the darling of the youth vote during the Democratic primaries. From the Iowa caucuses through the March 17 primaries, he won just 22 percent of the votes among those younger than 45 years old and far less among those aged 18-24. But despite his low levels of initial support and ongoing reports of a lack of enthusiasm for his candidacy, polls now show the former vice president boasting a 20+ point lead over Pres. Donald Trump among young voters. It’s little wonder why. Millennials (born 1981 to 1996) and Generation Z (born after 1996) identify or...
  • Lefty think tank president says he’d have rushed St. Louis homeowners and beaten their brains in (Niskanen Center president)

    Of course we’re talking about the St. Louis couple who brandished firearms at “peaceful protesters” who knocked down a gate and marched through their private property. Plenty of lefties can’t believe that they haven’t been arrested yet for pointing guns at people, but as The Federalist reports, left-wing think tank president Jerry Taylor wouldn’t have waited for the police. In a now-deleted tweet, he says he would have rushed the couple, beaten their brains in, and not apologized either.

    St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner is contemplating whether a pair of married lawyers broke any laws on Sunday when they aimed firearms at nonviolent protesters who were walking past the couple's Central West End mansion en route to a protest at the nearby house of Mayor Lyda Krewson. In multiple videos, including one that had more than 13 million views by Monday morning, Mark and Patricia McCloskey are seen aiming their weapons at the protestors. Mark McCloskey is shown holding an assault-style rifle, while Patricia is seen holding a semiautomatic pistol. It is unclear if either gun is loaded....

    Yesterday, while praying for peace and unity in our city and the protection of the Saint Louis statue, Black Lives Matter protesters started to harass, berate, and assault the Catholics that were peacefully praying. We did nothing in retaliation (Thread with documentation) 1/8 We allowed them to spit on us, call us names, put their fingers in our faces, push us, and antagonize, but we did not retaliate. We continued to peacefully pray. At that moment someone in the crowd poured an unidentified liquid on the older man, pictured below protecting his head, and was then attacked by a violent...

    Coming soon to a home near you. A Missouri mob of looters/protestors was very lucky not to be legally shot as a well-armed couple defend their home from the mob that broke through their perimeter gate. Video shows the armed couple facing down the mob. The important aspect is here the mob was not on a public street; the mob represented a clear threat; and Missouri has strong Castle Doctrine laws that do not require a duty of the homeowner to retreat from the threat. This mob was very fortunate the couple were well disciplined in their use of firearms....

    A video from 2015 has gone viral, showing a black anti-police activist accepting an invitation from Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office in Arizona to participate in police use of force simulation training sessions to better understand the stresses and split-second decisions police officers are faced with on a daily basis. Reverend Jarrett Maupin, who organized #BlackLivesMatter protests following the officer-involved shooting in Ferguson, participated in three scenarios, each one followed by a discussion of when he sensed a threat and why he chose to draw his weapon....Maupin stated that the training scenarios changed his way of thinking, saying, “I didn’t understand...

    EMINENCE, Mo. -- Crowds have gathered in Eminence, Missouri as a protest is expected Saturday afternoon in Shannon County. A protest was planned in response to a death investigation dating back to 2018. A local family is concerned with how the case has been handled by the Shannon County Sheriff's Office. The Shannon County Sheriff says credible threats were made against him, his deputies and jail staff, including threats to harm and threats to damage the courthouse and other buildings. The sheriff says he reached out to state defense forces ahead of Saturday. The Shannon County Sheriff's Office includes the...

    Friday on MSNBC, network political commentator former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) accused President Donald Trump’s supporters of “gleefully putting other people at risk” by attending the president’s rally on Saturday in Tulsa, OK during the coronavirus pandemic. After playing a clip from 2016 Trump encouraging his supporter to “knock the crap” out of protesters, host Joy Reid said, “He’s very George Wallace. You go back and look at old videos of George Wallace rallies in New York, that’s how he sounded as well. What do you make of Donald Trump potentially bringing that energy to a place like Tulsa that...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — As of June 16, Missouri will be “fully open for business” even though the coronavirus “is still out there,” Gov. Mike Parson announced Thursday. The second phase of Parson’s reopening plan means there will be no statewide health order — albeit, local officials will be able to enact more stringent rules or policies, as was the practice under the initial stage. The governor said all four “pillars” to reopening — expended testing, securing personal protective equipment (PPE), hospital capacity, and Missouri data — had been met during the extended initial phase.

    No cases of coronavirus have been linked to two Missouri hairstylists who saw 140 clients last month while symptomatic, county health officials said. Both stylists worked at the same Great Clips location in Springfield. The clients and the stylists all wore face coverings, and the salon had set up other measures such as social distancing of chairs and staggered appointments, the Springfield-Greene County Health Department said this week. Of the 140 clients and seven co-workers potentially exposed, 46 took tests that came back negative. All the others were quarantined for the duration of the coronavirus incubation period. The 14-day incubation...

    The video is horrific. David Dorn, a retired police captain in St. Louis, is lying on the sidewalk, dead or dying, blood everywhere, after he was shot by looters ransacking a local pawn shop. The establishment was owned by a friend. Dorn worked there as well and arrived at the shop when the alarms were triggered. His murder was captured on Facebook Live. The St. Louis Police Department released the surveillance footage from inside the pawnshop showing multiple persons of interest in the murder of Dorn. It led to the arrest of Stephan Cannon, who has been charged with first-degree...

    When ANTIFA and other radical groups threatened to destroy St. Louis, Missouri, in 2017, then-Governor Eric Greitens, a former Navy SEAL officer, stepped in and with frontline leadership defeated them. A few months afterward, in 2018, Greitens was forced to resign from office as legal costs, which numbered in the millions, mounted following a criminal charge against him. His deputy, Mike Parson, took his place. This February, however, the Missouri Ethics Commission exonerated Greitens after a 20-month investigation. Kimberly Gardner, the George Soros-backed prosecutor who charged Greitens for crimes with no evidence is now under active criminal investigation. Moreover, the former...

One of the first people to bring the death of David Dorn, 77, to the wider public attention’s was President Donald Trump, who tweeted the following late Tuesday, long before the national media picked up the story the following morning:
