John Kasich makes push for gun control

Ohio Governor and former presidential candidate John Kasich is pushing for gun control again. This time, his plan is to bring together “reasonable people” to bring about limits to the 2nd Amendment.

“My purpose is to get people who respect the Second Amendment but can agree there are some limits to it, to sit in a room to develop policy I can pass on to the leadership in my legislature,” he said. “Without this process I’m not convinced we’ll make progress. I know just arguing back and forth not working.”

In an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Kasich highlighted recent events in Las Vegas and Sutherland Springs to promote the idea that we need to limit gun rights. He repeatedly mentioned respecting the 2nd Amendment while invoking a need to curtail it.

“Ohio is a place where people want to solve problems,” Kasich said. “They’re willing to listen. I want to get a group of reasonable people, pro-gun people. And those who favored limits on gun ownership. I want to put ‘em in a room and see if we can find common ground.”

Kasich has been rumored to be considering another run for the White House in 2020:

John Kasich wants to ruin 2020 like he ruined 2016

https://noqreport.com/2017/10/20/john-kasich-wants-ruin-2020-like-ruined-2016/There’s currently speculation that his aloofness about running may be a sign that he’s considering it. Duh. There’s also a report that he met with foreign policy advisers yesterday. Unless Ohio is considering declaring war on Iceland, this isn’t just speculation anymore. Governor Kasich is intending to run for President in 2020.

Thankfully, that doesn’t necessarily mean he will. His intention in 2017 is irrelevant when we consider the earliest he could possibly make it official is still a year-and-a-half away. That means there’s time to knock some sense into him. There’s time for him to find other ways to raise money other than running a corrupt campaign. There are other ways for him to stay in the public spotlight he craves other than putting Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren in the Oval Office.

My Take

No serious 2nd Amendment advocate wants someone to carry a minigun into an elementary school, but there are plenty of laws on the books that are intended to prevent abuse of the right. The challenge is with the domino effect. Once we start giving in to the emotional calls for limits to the 2nd Amendment, we will see further actions popping up as a result.

Most gun control groups don’t want to stop at bump stocks and clip limits. They want to take away as many guns as possible… if not all of them. Giving in a little will lead to them taking much, much more. Kasich’s heart seems to be squarely stuck in the middle where he’s always been politically. He wants to toe the fine line between the two parties and try to build a bipartisan coalition to support him. It won’t work, but there’s still much damage he can do along the way.

Gun grabbing is a process that starts with ‘common sense’ measures and leads to oppression

http://noqreport.com/2017/10/04/gun-grabbing-process-starts-common-sense-measures-leads-oppression/It’s important to understand the speed at which things change in society today because the vast majority of Americans cannot imagine the need to defend themselves against oppression from within. We assume that the government has our back and will always have our back as long as we pay our taxes and don’t rip the labels off our mattresses. It’s unfathomable that circumstances may arise that convinces the government we’d all be better off if they seized more control, Constitution be damned.

      Spot-on. “Common Sense Gun Control” = next step in plan to confiscate all guns from civilian hands except for the elite.

      What part of “shall not be infringed” do these yahoos not understand? It does not say, “infringed only a little bit”, “infringed by application of common sense gun laws” it says most clearly “shall NOT be infringed”

Pregnant Jewish woman and six others gunned down in Hanukkah terror attack

Video of the attack showed a white car driving up to the post and slowing down as it passed a group of Jews standing at the stop. The travelers are seen scrambling away as they were sprayed with bullets, with the car immediately driving away.

 A young pregnant woman and six other travelers were injured in a Palestinian shooting attack at a bus stop outside the Jewish town of Ofra on Sunday night.

The woman, who was brought to Jerusalem’s Shaarei Zedek Medical Center in critical condition, has had her condition upgraded to stable, but her son, delivered by emergency Caesarian section, has been downgraded to critical.

The wounded woman, Shira Yael Ish-Ran and her husband, Amichai Yishai Ish-Ran.

The wounded woman, Shira Yael Ish-Ran and her husband, Amichai Yishai Ish-Ran.

The attack took place on the eighth night of Hanukkah at a popular hitchhiking post and bus stop.

Video of the attack showed a white car driving up to the post and slowing down as it passed a group of Jews standing at the stop. The travelers are seen scrambling away as they were sprayed with bullets, with the car immediately driving away.

One pregnant 21-year-old woman, Shira Yael Ish-Ran, was shot in the lower abdomen and was said to be “fighting for her life,” though doctors managed to save the life of her first child, delivered at just 30 weeks gestation. The boy was immediately transferred to the neo-natal intensive care unit, but his condition worsened overnight, and he is now attached to a ventilator.

“A pregnant woman who loses so much blood cannot provide the oxygen necessary for the baby in her belly,” Dr. Alon Schwartz, a surgeon at the hospital told Army Radio on Monday. “This was apparently the harm to the baby that we discovered.”

According to Schwartz, the young woman lost a lot of blood and arrived at the hospital in a state of shock. The hospital reported that she has regained consciousness and showed signs of movement, but that she remains in life-threatening danger. Her family requested continued prayers for Shira Yael bat Leora Sarah and for her son, Tinok ben Shira Yael.

Shira is the daughter of Chaim Silberstein, founder and president of Keep Jerusalem, an organization that advocates the unification of Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty, and the president of the Jerusalem Capital Development Fund, an organization dedicated to reclaiming and strengthening the Jewish presence in Jerusalem and parts of Judea and Samaria.

The woman’s husband was also injured in the attack and underwent surgery at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital. His condition was said to have improved from moderate to mild-to-moderate.

Two 16-year-old girls suffered light injuries and were taken to Hadassah Ein Kerem.

“Praying for the recovery of those injured in the despicable terrorist attack, including the young mother who brought life to the world from this hellish scene,” wrote Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on Twitter. “I  send my unreserved support to the security forces who are relentlessly pursuing the terrorists.”

IDF, border police and security services forces cooperated in a widespread manhunt for the terrorists in Palestinian enclaves near to the attack. Officials stated that the vehicle in which the attempted murder was committed is believed to have contained at least two occupants.

Alexander Acosta is the swamp

Alexander Acosta is the swamp

Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein served 13 months in prison. His deal brought no justice to his victims who were not even informed until after the deal was made. He was protected from federal prosecution and given every amenity possible during his stay in a private wing of his prison. All of this was made possible by Alexander Acosta, the current Labor Secretary in the Trump administration.

Epstein may have escaped justice, but Acosta should not be allowed to escape repercussions for his part in the Epstein deal. If the President ever really had intentions of draining the swamp, he should start by firing Acosta immediately.

The Russian investigation was never about Russia. It was cover to find dirt on the President.

The Russian investigation was never about Russia It was cover to find dirt on the President

President Trump is almost certainly never going to be caught committing the types of crimes that initially prompted the Russia investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller. That was never the goal of the investigation. It was a cover story concocted to give Mueller unimpeded access to the President and his staff.

As I’ve said on multiple occasions, the Russian collusion angle was simply an excuse to justify digging into the affairs of the President, his campaign staff, and everyone associated with them. They knew the chances of finding true collusion were slim, but they needed a reason to try to uncover potentially impeachable offenses. Now, Democrats and mainstream media think they’ve found them in the form of hush money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy bunny Karen McDougal.

The sentencing recommendation documents for Michael Cohen, the President’s former attorney, revealed the investigation is now focused on proving that “Individual-1” ordered the hush money be paid to cover up affairs the President had with the two women. Many experts, including Trump supporters like Chris Christy and Andrew McCarthy, believe there’s a case that can be made against President Trump for campaign finance violations.

There are two questions that must be answered. Did candidate Trump order Michael Cohen to pay hush money? If he did, was it a violation of campaign finance laws?

The answer to the first one is almost certainly yes. It’s hard to imagine Cohen acting on his own. In fact, it’s ludicrous to think that Trump, who is known for micromanaging his affairs, would not be made aware of any threats or perceived threats of these women at the height of the campaign.

The second question has a murkier answer. Arguments can be made in both directions. Was it an effort to stifle potentially damaging revelations that could hurt the campaign? Yes. Was it a personal matter, in which case paying off people for their silence is not against the law? Yes.

The timing of the payoffs may be the best argument the prosecution will be able to make to demonstrate these were campaign finance violations. Because these would be considered damaging to the campaign, one can easily make the connection that they were intended to influence the outcome of the election. On the other hand, the argument can also be made that the threats came out because of the election, but the decision to pay hush money was a personal one. This could be easily corroborated if past payments were revealed.

The President has a sure-fire way to disprove campaign finance violations, but he won’t like it

http://noqreport.com/2018/12/09/president-sure-fire-way-disprove-campaign-finance-violations-wont-like/By showing past payoffs to women, the President can go with the story that he didn’t want to damage his marriage or business dealings. This play might hurt his reputation, but it would likely quash attempts to indict him.

This is all assuming there were past payoffs. If there weren’t, then it would be difficult for his defense to claim the two payoffs in question were not politically motivated.

It may not be the most elegant solution for the President, but if the investigation continues to build a case that he committed campaign finance violations, he may have no choice but to reveal past payoffs that show he’s immoral, but not a criminal.

If President Trump never paid hush money to women before announcing his candidacy, then he’s truly in a pickle. It’s hard to argue this was a personal issue devoid of political motivations because his past is checkered with scandals that mirror or even supersede such claims. Most damaging is the fact that he’s bragged about affairs in books he’s published.

The President’s opponents were willing to take him down regardless of the cost. That’s why they concocted the Russia collusion investigation in the first place. This whole mess stinks and will be a stain on our political system for years to come.
