The Shroud of Gun Control has Fallen

Published

on

“No one is trying to take your guns.”

How many times have we heard this leftist narrative when the subject of gun control comes up? I’ve heard it literally thousands of times. They’ve simply spouted that they want “common sense” measures in place to prevent mass shootings. Of course, when you bring up gun-control cities like Chicago and DC they come up with some excuse as to why it doesn’t work there. One thing always remains the same: “I respect the 2nd Amendment.”

Senator Kamala Harris spoke this very sentence a few weeks ago right before saying “they are killing our babies,” ironically just days after tweeting that Republicans were “immoral” for wanting to ban abortions after 20 weeks, when abortions require a procedure that requires live vivisection of babies who feel pain.

Well, the narrative is over. They don’t respect the 2nd Amendment. They want to repeal it. Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens wrote yesterday that the 2nd Amendment is outdated and should be repealed. Make no mistake, while they may not all admit it, this is how leftists all feel.

In addition to Steven’s statement, just in the last few weeks:

  • The Illinois legislature passed a bill to confiscate guns from 18-20 year olds
  • The GA legislature had a bill introduced to confiscate guns
  • A NC sheriff’s candidate suggested that he was fine confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens by killing them

Some on the left are admonishing these moves and statements, but that is only because they want to maintain the illusion that they don’t share these views. Don’t be fooled, they very much do.

Yes, the left is actually suggesting that people who don’t conform to their ideas on gun control be killed, which is WHY we have a 2nd Amendment in the first place.

What to do

I want to give President Trump the benefit of the doubt when he sought to seek some sort of compromise, but if the Left has proven anything over the last year or so, it is that no compromise will ever mollify them. Therefore, the compromises we’ve already made with the National Firearms Act and other gun control measures are not only enough, but too much. It’s time to start taking back ground, as Missouri Senate candidate Austin Petersen boldly proclaimed to me in a recent interview. We can’t be afraid to say that YES, we SHOULD be able to have weapons of war. That’s what the 2nd Amendment is FOR, to put government in check. We need to stop “gunsplaining” as the Left is now calling it about the difference between automatic and semi-automatic and the difference between ARs and M4s. We should be able to have whatever we damn well please. I don’t have a problem in this day in age with having criminal background checks. Those can be done in a few minutes.

Beyond that, let’s quit playing political defense on this issue and start playing political offense. Otherwise, the Left has made it clear they’ll have us playing violent defense. They’re coming for us, folks. I thought MAYBE we’d have a couple more years, but they’re coming for us NOW. They WANT the totalitarian regime they claim the Trump Administration to be, but they want it under a Barack Obama or a Hilary Clinton or a Kamala Harris. When you have Sheriff’s candidates suggesting they kill citizens to confiscate guns, yeah, it’s time to stop compromising. They aren’t marching for their lives; they’re marching to take ours if we don’t give up our freedom.

    Every Democrat (and Republican?) running 2018 mid terms needs to clarify their stance of gun control and if they want to repeal 2nd Amendment. This could wash out their blue wave in November.

Veronique de Rugy: Green New Deal would be hundreds of TRILLIONS of dollars in federal commitment

Veronique de Rugy Green New Deal would be hundreds of TRILLIONS of dollars in federal commitment

If there’s a word that’s not necessarily negative one could use to describe the Green New Deal, it would be “ambitious.” The deal has so much wrapped into it that it’s hard to tell which components are designed to save the environment and which ones are intended to destroy the economy.

Estimates put costs for the “green side” of the resolution at somewhere between $12-$20 trillion. Then, there’s the Medicare-for-All component that is estimated at $32 trillion over a decade.

And that’s just the start.

This isn’t just a “green” deal. It’s a hodgepodge of policy proposals that include massively growing the welfare state, inserting government even more into the job markets, and a universal basic income that they refuse to actually call a universal basic income. The much-maligned FAQ that was posted and quickly removed from the website of sponsor Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) mentioned paying people who were unable or even “unwilling” to work.

“Even in the best case scenario where you substitute a UBI for all the other forms of welfare, it’s insane,” said Veronique de Rugy, Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, on ReasonTV.

But here’s the problem. The Green New Deal doesn’t substitute a universal basic income for other welfare programs. In the Green New Deal, the programs recommended are supposed to be additions, not substitutions.

“It’s a really hard system to support even in its ideal form,” de Rugy continued. “Then there’s this Green New Deal version which doesn’t even seem to entertain this notion of actually substituting for all the rest, so it’s on top of what we have now.”

The real question we need to ask is whether or not the Democratic Party is actually going to support this. In its current form, the Green New Deal is a fantasy, and perhaps that’s what the more-sane Democrats are shooting for by supporting it. By giving it their attention now, they can work their way down to more reasonable proposals for everything from environmental protection to job creation programs to different versions of socialism.

In other words, they may be using the hyper-leftism of the Green New Deal as a gateway to get to the palatable leftism of what’s quickly becoming mainstream socialism.

The Green New Deal shouldn’t scare conservatives because it can’t happen. What should concern us is the end result negotiated down from this starting point. Given the GOP’s negotiating track record lately, we don’t know what we’re going to get when the Green New Deal is trimmed down to reality.

George Washington University students triggered by their mascot

George Washington University students triggered by their mascot

George Washington University is the home of the Colonials. You know, those people who came to America from Europe and eventually fought against the oppressive government of England in order to win independence for America. These heroes of the American Revolution are now being condemned by the students of George Washington University itself.

While the movement and attached petition haven’t reached a tipping point, the idea of changing the mascot to the “Hippo” is gaining momentum. Why? Well, we’ll let the students themselves tell you what they think.

This video by Campus Reform takes us into the wacky world of triggered college students who are so much in opposition of the people who made this country possible that they’d rather be named after the “river horse” of sub-Saharan Africa.

Trump to Acosta: ‘You have an agenda. You’re CNN. You’re fake news.’

Trump to Acosta You have an agenda Youre CNN Youre fake news

During President Trump’s press conference announcing his declaration of a national emergency, CNN’s Jim Acosta asked whether the President was concocting the national emergency in order to build his border wall because he couldn’t get it done through Congress. The President responded in standard fashion, attacking Acosta’s question itself as biased.

“You have an agenda. You’re CNN. You’re fake news,” the President said to the reporter.

Acosta has been at the center of controversy throughout President Trump’s term, tussling with members of the administration and the President himself at times. He lost access to the White House in November, 2018, after an altercation with a White House staffer.

This time, the President answered Acosta’s question about whether or not the emergency was manufactured by telling him to ask the Angel moms sitting in the front row if they thought the emergency was manufactured. Acosta did not.
