“Gun clingers” aren’t the ones with a gun problem

Published

on

Guns are a bit of a hot topic in our country and unfortunately, the issue isn’t relenting as quickly. The facts are with Conservatives while the social left has most of the momentum.

People talk about a gun problem and assume Conservatives are the ones with it.

This month began with a viral video of a man being shot on Facebook Live. The video shows Devyn Holmes being shot by Cassandra Damper while she is pretending to be all gangsta. A few critical details arise from watching the video. Holmes does not appear to really know Damper. Damper was told by “Cadillac Coleman” that the gun wasn’t loaded prior to her cocking the pistol and shooting Holmes. Many have speculated that this was a setup to make shooting Holmes seem like an accident.

I cannot blame these people and would second that Damper and Coleman should be charged with crimes as severe as attempted murder first and second degree.

As a followup, Devin Holmes by most recent reports is recovering. Damper was initially charged with tampering with evidence but is now wanted for skipping bail after new charges came up. It seems police may also believe the video was a setup.

Enter Brenna Spencer

Brenna Spencer posted this photo that got a lot of attention and controversy. And what’s controversial about it? A young attractive educated Trump-supporting conservative woman celebrating concealed carry?

While this is exhibit #4825358 for the case of conservative women being hotter than feminists/socialists, it isn’t all that provocative. Yet leftists are losing their minds! Leftist want to shame those on the right for celebrating the 2nd Amendment. Just recall the outrage over running/yoga pants being made for concealed carry.

Young leftists readily confess that they are unfit to purchase a firearm, yet this college student defies their outcries. The celebration of the right to own and carry a firearm is under attack. Leftists want to shame us for celebrating freedom from their safe spaces. And they will not relent.

When the gun control crowd sees people celebrating this freedom, they associate this demonstration with mass shooters. There is no logical comparison but most of their side, on this issue, is without a basic understanding of that which they speak about. We are basically debating straw men, but it’s not our fault. They want to believe that celebrating gun rights is somehow correlated or contributing to mass shooting and a “gun problem” in our country.

NRA to the rescue?

There are problems associated with firearms but the tools themselves are not it.

A number of leftists decry the NRA as a terrorist organization, absent of facts. However, the NRA teaches gun safety. Tools require safe use, and the NRA provides this need. If Cassandra Damper had learned gun safety, a sincere accident would have been avoided (a premeditated homicide not so much). She would have known the difference in weight between a loaded an unloaded handgun.

She would have assumed a round in the chamber. She would not have pointed it in someone’s face in any situation. And she certainly wouldn’t have played with the trigger. Gun clingers know this. To us, this is common sense gun control. Brenna Spencer isn’t the one with a problem. Those who celebrate thug culture’s disregard for human life’s inherent value are, as usual, the one’s with a problem.

Enter Youtube

Youtube was recently the victim of vegan jihad. A PETA member shot them up because they demonetized her account. She retaliated violently against Youtube censorship. No one dare calls PETA a terror organization. Yet, how many conservatives are demonetized by Youtube?

PragerU gets censored by them, and many conservatives rely on creating their own subscription revenue because advertising revenue isn’t reliable. Gun videos are censored. Basically, anything that doesn’t promote what Youtube believes in is subject to censorship. Yet despite the greater severity in which conservative accounts are targeted by Youtube, it wasn’t a conservative who violently responded.

Conclusion

What appears to be the case is that there is consistently a higher regard for human life on the right as opposed to the left.

Consistently, mass murderers were registered Democrats and very few came from a “gun-clinger” environment. Yet “gun clingers” are the problem to the leftists?

But even with their gun free tech headquarters being shot up, they don’t consider that maybe the celebration of gun rights is completely unrelated to the problems with guns and homicides in our country. Or else an NRA member would have been a culprit at one point in time.

Could it be that the NRA promotes the value of human life? Absolutely. But I would also raise that many of those who cling to guns also cling to bibles. What better source material on the value of human life exists in the world?

    There are demands for increasing the age at which a firearm may be purchased. Consider this: How can someone who is defined as not mentally mature enough to own a firearm be considered mature enough to have a ballot? Voting for our representatives who will have control of the levers of power is one of the most responsible adult acts possible.
    We need to restore the voting age to 21 and then have a science based discussion of what is the appropriate age to consider a person mature enough to exercise full adult privileges and responsibilities.

So-called Red Flag laws: An unconstitutional solution to a non-existent problem

So-called Red Flag laws An unconstitutional solution to a non-existent problem

As with most Leftist affronts to Liberty, unconstitutional gun confiscation SWATing or so-called ‘Red Flag’ laws are based on a lie. The usual contention is that these laws that eviscerate basic constitutional protections of due process are desperately needed because there are no other means to deal with people who are alleged to be a danger to themselves or others. Our previous article on the subject dealt with this outright falsehood. There are laws and procedures for involuntary civil commitments already on the books to handle these extreme situations. In the case of Florida and the Parkland mass murder, the “The Baker Act” was already in place, but the authorities failed to take action in time. Other states such as Colorado already have procedures in place for Mental Health Holds.

The existence of these laws have been ignored in the effort to ‘enhance’ the government’s ability to confiscate guns. Its just another case of the Left exploiting a tragedy to ‘Rahm’ through new laws to deprive the people of their means of self-defense.

Laws built on lies

Most articles on what is supposedly the urgent need for gun confiscation SWATing or ‘Red Flag’ laws will make vague allusions there are no other ways of handling these situations to the point of asserting that the government has never had the authority to deal with these situations.

State governments clearly have these abilities, but the existing laws protect the Constitutional rights of the accused without having the primary purpose of confiscating guns – an intolerable situation for the authoritarian Left that sees 120 million gun owners as a threat simply because they are gun owners.

Why violate one human right when several can be attacked at once?

Leftists seem to be in some perverse competition to see which one of them can conjure up new laws to attack Liberty in as many ways as possible. For them, it’s a more efficient form of tyranny with one law doing the work of several. What better way to suppress Liberty than to confiscate guns because of someone exercising their right of free speech while destroying due process protections?

The dangerous implications to the 1st Amendment

These laws will have devastating consequences for the natural right of free speech. It will only take one concerned person in the group of people who can initiate these actions to decide an innocent gun owner is guilty of ‘thoughtcrime’ to have their property confiscated. The odds are that the Left will also expand who can initiate these gun confiscation SWATings and streamline the process.

This will only serve to further stigmatize gun owners and suppress their right of free speech. Talk too much about the human right of self-defense and the law-abiding could experience a knock on the door at 5:00 AM with property confiscation conducted at gunpoint. One would then have a protracted legal battle on their hands to prove they are innocent after being treated as guilty with all manner of legal costs and red tape just to have their property returned.

The 2nd Amendment – the primary target

In their ongoing efforts to rid the nation of Liberty, the Left has decided that it should be illegal to defend oneself. Thus they have expended copious amounts of digital ink in demanding the death of the 2nd amendment and the confiscation of guns. They are perfectly willing to do this one innocent gun owner at a time if they have to. Never mind that the common sense human right of self-defense is the bedrock of the Bill or Rights. They have no use for the limitations of their power afforded by the Constitution, much less the Liberty conserving provisions of the Bill of Rights.

But wait, there’s more – The 4th and 5th amendments also on the chopping block

These laws turn the presumption of innocence on its head, forcing the victim of one of these gun confiscation raids to have to prove they aren’t guilty of thoughtcrime before they can get their property returned. Not to mention the ‘ex parte’ nature of these proceedings depriving innocent of the critical right of due process and the right to face one’s accuser before these confiscations take place. Lastly, there is the takings clause applicable to the private property being taken for public use since not many innocent gun owners will have the means for a protracted legal battle with the government, resulting in the loss of private property.

Why the focus on firearms?-

The existing laws for Involuntary Civil Commitment are not only superior in protecting everyone’s civil rights. They also serve to keep people from harm by other means. The unconstitutional practice of gun confiscation SWATing only addresses the issue of guns, leaving the supposed danger to society free to use alternative methods to cause harm.

If safety is the point of the so-called ‘Red Flag’ or ‘ERPO’ laws, then why aren’t their proponents concerned about this issue? If someone has their guns taken away suddenly by unconstitutional means, what’s to stop them from using explosives – flour, etc.- from carrying out their deadly deeds? Suppose an alleged ‘danger to society’ no longer has their guns, but still has a motorized vehicle or the ability to make edged weaponry. What about that circumstance?

Well, if it were really the case in that these people are concerned about other people’s welfare to the point of having them committed, they would have to follow the rule of law and afford the target their right of due process, etc. They wouldn’t be able to take someone’s means of self-defense just on the word of some other aggrieved party. It wouldn’t serve their desire for gun confiscation and gun confiscation alone, so it has no usefulness for them.

Things aren’t going according to plan for the Liberty Grabber Left

The progression for the Left has always been one of control, registration and then confiscation. They used to think that it was just a matter of time before Intergalactic Background Checks would be put in place, then registration would be required – both of which would do nothing to keep people safe or ‘cut down on the carnage’. It was all supposed to happen as it did in the UK and Australia. Intergalactic Background Checks, registration, then confiscation.

But that isn’t happening, despite the baseless polling to the contrary, everyone isn’t clamoring to have the government control their private property. Most of the Pro-Liberty see the danger in this control, with it leading to registration, followed by confiscation. Most on both sides have already admitted that Intergalactic Background Checks don’t work, that the dirty little secret being that these have no other purpose than as a stepping stones to confiscation.

The Takeaway

As others have indicated, Leftists aren’t anti-gun, they are anti-Liberty. They love to see them in the hands of the ‘politically correct’, but cannot deal with them in the hands of the right people.

Leftists desperately want to deprive the Pro-Liberty Right of their guns. These firearms represent a vitally important and final check on unlimited governmental power. It’s the primary bulwark against them attaining government power to attain their wondrous utopia they desire. They are so desperate to remove it that they will confiscate them one innocent person at a time, without a care for its effects on safety or Liberty.

The bizarre downward spiral of Michael Cohen

The bizarre downward spiral of Michael Cohen

Michael Cohen, the former attorney and “fixer” for President Trump before he won the 2016 election, has gone from being a man with all the right connections to a convicted felon whose solace can only come if he’s able to do damage to his former boss. That’s it. That’s all Michael Cohen has left in the tank to drive him on in life.

It would be a sad fall from grace, except the more we learn about him, the more we realize he wasn’t living a life of grace at all. Instead, he existed in the shadows doing hush-hush deals and having to fake the respect he felt he deserved.

The latest embarrassment comes in the form of a WSJ article that kills any remnant of his professional and personal reputations. On the professional side, he allegedly paid money to have an IT specialist boost pre-candidate Trump’s poll numbers on CNBC and Drudge Report polls.

Drudge Trump Poll

On the personal front, he allegedly had the same IT guy create a Twitter account that portrayed Cohen as powerful, successful, and loved by women as a “sex symbol.”

Seriously.

Women for Cohen

The clowning of Michael Cohen on Twitter has been especially brutal.

Rock bottom is coming

The reason we’re calling this a downward spiral is because it’s ongoing and the worst is yet to come. When will he hit rock bottom? That comes next month when he testifies before Congress.

We can expect two things:

  1. He will lay out embarrassing and potentially damaging information about the President that will all be denied except for the parts that Cohen recorded.
  2. He will bring the maximum level of disgrace to his own reputation and future because at this point, he really doesn’t have either.

It’s going to be ugly. Every word will be analyzed. The news cycle will be dominated by his revelations as mainstream media goes for the President Trump’s jugular.

And it won’t help

The only thing Michael Cohen has left is revenge. He feels wronged by his former boss, so he’s out to destroy his Presidency. It may work, but I seriously doubt it. Lest we forget, President Trump survived GrabThemGate. He was clowned over John Barron. He’s the guy who invoked the National Inquirer as his source to defeat Ted Cruz, then somehow convinced his base he was the champion against fake news. Whatever Michael Cohen has to say, it’s unlikely to be enough to make a real difference in the 2020 election. It’s only going to drive Cohen’s own public persona so low, he’ll be even more of a punchline than he already is.

Counterbalancing the fire-hose of Leftist propaganda

Counterbalancing the fire-hose of Leftist propaganda

A study confirms the extreme bias of the national socialist media and what you can do about it.

A study just released from the MRC should only confirm what is already understood to be the case. The national socialist media is horribly biased against the pro-liberty right and the president in particular.

Since January 20, 2017, the Media Research Center has analyzed every moment of coverage of President Trump on the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts, seen by approximately 23 million people each night. Highlights:

The tone of coverage remains incessantly hostile: 90% negative, vs. just 10% positive (excluding neutral statements), matching the historically bad press we documented in 2017. Yet despite the media’s obvious disapproval, public opinion of the President actually improved slightly during 2018, from an average 40% approval on January 1 to 42.7% approval on December 31, according to RealClearPolitics.

[Our emphasis]

This is how the insanely biased Leftist media has a pernicious effect on our society. This explains how some actually think that the historical scam of socialism is a workable system of government. Or how there is a panic over the onset of Global Cooling.. Global Warming.. Climate Change to the point that we somehow need a ‘Green new deal’ of ideas that aren’t even ‘green’ or new. This is how it’s become acceptable in some circles to jettison basic civil rights because of some perceived ‘epidemic’ in ‘gun violence’.

Pushing back on the Overton window.

We are dealing with a phenomenon of once outrageous ideas becoming mainstream. Concepts that only a few years ago would have had people protesting in the streets are accepted with almost quiet resignation. This has been labelled the ‘Overton window’ where a constant drumbeat of Leftist lies and propaganda have altered the perception of acceptable policy agendas. This was exemplified in a recent article about the state of Oregon wanting to institute extremly strict laws on Liberty. The piece causally refereed to government control of private property almost in passing:

A bill that would increase firearm regulations in Oregon is a reminder that states have vastly different gun laws.

In Idaho, for example, you can purchase a gun from a private owner without going through a background check. In Oregon, background checks are required for all sales.

Never mind that practically everyone – Academia, Vox, even the director of Everytown – has admitted that Intergalactic Background Checks [Universal, enhanced] will not have any value aside from setting up the nation for the next step to confiscation: Registration.

In the battle against the ever encroaching authoritarian Left, we need more voices instead of more regulation. Leftist media sources will continue to discredit themselves spewing narrowly focused propaganda. Some may wonder why they don’t talk about the treatment of ‘marginalized’ groups overseas or similar issues they consider to be critical in the states. The answer is simple, they have a specific focus and agenda that cannot be distracted by these and other problems. This is why it is critical that people have sources such as the NOQ report that don’t carry those agendas. This is why we desperately need your help.

The national socialist media will hopefully become less and less effective at selling the Left’s authoritarian agenda, but they are still able to sway the opinion of many. That is why is it critical that we have voices that act in opposition to its outrageous propaganda.
