Why Candace Owens and #BLEXIT are the Democrats’ worst nightmare

Why Candace Owens and #BLEXIT are the Democrats' worst nightmare

When a young, black female speaks out against Democrats, they will do what they always do: insult and marginalize. Judging by reactions on social media, their playbook is open and conservative commentator Candace Owens is their target.

The problem they’re having is that most of their playbook won’t work on her. They can’t play the racism card. They can’t play the sexism card. They may try to play a recently added card, the one they tried to use against Kanye West following his visit to the Oval Office. It’s the “unintelligent” card where they tried to portray West as simply lacking the intellectual skills to prevent himself from being used by the President. It didn’t work on West who was up to the challenge. It definitely won’t work on Owens.

It’s statements on Twitter like this one that keep Democrats up at night:

They’ve had to deal with messages like these in the past, but this one is different. It’s attached to a movement. That movement has a catchy and memorable name. They have a mission, to visit black neighborhoods around the nation in an effort to convert people away from the Democratic Party.

It’s ambitious, but it’s also necessary. The biggest problem the Democrats have is that what Owens, West, and other prominent African-American conservatives are saying about the Democratic Party are true. What John James, Senate candidate in Michigan, said the other day is equally true:

John James: ‘Democratic Party leadership cares more about the black vote than the black people’

https://noqreport.com/2018/10/27/john-james-democratic-party-leadership-cares-black-vote-black-people/The Michigan Senate race wasn’t supposed to be close. Democrats have had a stranglehold on the seat and expected this to be another easy win. They didn’t anticipate John James.

Democrat Debbie Stabenow’s lead has dropped 10 points in 10 days, thanks in part to the increasing popularity of James among black voters. His call for having voices at both political tables is a strong message that Michigan voters should heed.

These messages can work today in ways they’ve never been able to work before because Republicans are demonstrating what conservative leadership can do for the African-American community. At the peak of Barack Obama’s presidency in 2010, black unemployment was at 16.5%. In March of this year it hit its lowest point ever at 6.6%. It took a Republican House, Senate, and White House to get it done and African-Americans have taken notice.

Americans in general are not looking for the handouts the Democrats want to give us. We’ll accept them when the situation makes it necessary, but our true yearning is for the opportunity to support ourselves, our families, and to reach for the American dream in ways our parents and grandparents simply couldn’t.

True hope. That’s the message that’s tied to #BLEXIT. What Candace Owens, John James, and Kanye West have learned is that the Democratic Party has proven beyond any reasonable doubt their policies do not help African-Americans… or anyone else.

Love is often a one-way street between Evangelical Christians and Jews (and that’s okay)

Love is often a one-way street between Evangelical Christians and Jews and thats okay

Jesus Christ was a Jew. The Apostles were Jews. Just about everyone who laid the groundwork for the Church were Jews. These facts above all else are why a good portion of Evangelical Christians love the Jews. The sentiment is often not mutual.

To understand why this is so and more importantly why it’s a perfectly acceptable form of unrequited love, one must look at the world from the perspective of the Jews. Here are a few things to remember:

  • Over the centuries, Jews have faced the greatest level of persecution of any religious group. Many times, these persecutions were done in the name of the church and at the hands of purported Christians.
  • If the Evangelical Christian view is correct, then that would mean the Jewish people have been wrong in their beliefs for 2,000 years. It would also mean that they were deeply involved in the crucifixion of their own Messiah. That’s a very hard pill for anyone to swallow.
  • Conversions are happening every day. Jews in and out of Israel are believing in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. This means that many friends and family members of orthodox Jews are switching to a religion that they believe is false. Who wouldn’t take offense to a religion that, in their opinion, is damning friends and family for eternity?

There are other reasons that many Jews hold onto that justify, in their opinion, negative sentiment towards Evangelical Christians.  It’s something that will likely not change until the truth is revealed to them and they say the words the Jesus Christ prophesied:

Luke 13:34-35

34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!

35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Nobody knows for sure why things have happened the way they have over the years. There are many doctrines that attempt to explain it all such as dispensationalism and replacement theology, but the truth is that we are incapable to know the true reasoning. Some have speculated that there needed to be this tension between Jews and Christians until the end when we all come together as believers at the Second Coming. It’s much like the understanding that Joseph went through when his brothers betrayed him. He had no way to know until God’s plan for him was fulfilled that the evil they did to him was done for the purpose of watering the seeds of the nation of Israel. While it was happening, while he was sold into slavery and betrayed by his own family, he must have had moments when he questioned God’s plan for him, but it became clear to him once all was said and done.

We are not to speculate about God’s motives. We are to spread His Word, pray always, worship and bless our Father, and love Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior with all our hearts. We are to boldly proclaim our love to all peoples and face the persecution that comes from it. That includes atheists, Muslims, Hindus, and people of all beliefs including Jews. They are our brothers and we must love them even if they do not return the same feelings.

As Ari Morgenstern points out in an article on the Jerusalem Post, bigotry towards Christians is the last acceptable form of religious prejudice in Israel. It’s a sign of the times, one that could mean more about things that will shortly come to pass than we could possibly know.

Had Joseph followed his flawed human heart, he would have hated his brothers for what they did to him. Instead, he loved them and knew that their actions were part of God’s plan. We must embrace the same mentality when we look to our Jewish brothers whether they want it or not.

Jeremiah 23:5 – ‘a King shall reign and prosper’

Jeremiah 23:5 a King shall reign and prosper

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. – Jeremiah 23:5 (KJV)

A good chunk of the prophecy we find in the Old Testament points to the first and second coming of Yeshua. Jeremiah is one of the most important of the Prophets in that he declared God’s message for every generation. Some of what he discussed was for his age. Others, including this very clear reference to Yeshua, was designed to speak to Jews and the world as verification of our Lord, Savior, and Messiah.

Jews still see it as the first coming. Christians know it pertains to His second coming.

Top 5 ‘assault weapon’ technologies that existed BEFORE the Constitution was written

Top 5 assault weapon technologies that existed BEFORE the Constitution was written

Just a sample of some of the repeating firepower that existed long before the 2nd amendment.

Leftist lore has it that the only guns in existence at the time of the writing of the 2nd amendment were muskets that took 5 minutes to reload. This being exemplified by the New York Times in using an image of a musket contrasted with an assault rifle in an article on their usual obsession with gun confiscation. Or from a commercial from a liberty grabber group depicting the long, drawn out reloading of a musket. As is usually the case with leftist lore, this is a complete fabrication.

The fact is that multishot or repeating firearms existed long before the affirmation of the common sense human right of self-preservation in the US Constitution. We’ve already highlighted some of these technologies that predate the Constitution. However, for the sake of completeness, we shall fill out the list with the other fine examples.

Since there is no set definition of the term ‘assault weapon’ or ‘weapons of war’ or what ever farcical term the liberty grabber left has come up with to demonize ordinary firearms, we bestowed this term to these technology as some of the first ‘Assault Weapons’.

Repeating rifles of the early 1600s, predating the Constitution by 160 years

The Encyclopedia Britannica has a very informative article on this subject with this excerpt detailing the most important point:

The first effective breech-loading and repeating flintlock firearms were developed in the early 1600s. One early magazine repeater has been attributed to Michele Lorenzoni, a Florentine gunmaker. In the same period, the faster and safer Kalthoff system—designed by a family of German gunmakers—introduced a ball magazine located under the barrel and a powder magazine in the butt. By the 18th century the Cookson repeating rifle was in use in North America, having separate tubular magazines in the stock for balls and powder and a lever-activated breech mechanism that selected and loaded a ball and a charge, also priming the flash pan and setting the gun on half cock.

[Our Emphasis]

Please note that these multishot or repeating firearms existed almost 2 centuries before the writing of the Constitution, eviscerating the ‘Muskets only’ lie of the national socialist Left. For those who are numerically as well a factually challenged, this was also 370 years before the 21st Century.

The Lorenzoni repeating flintlock: Portable firepower that predated the Constitution by over 100 years

Our first video from the venerable website Forgotten weapons is of two London-Made Lorenzonis Repeating Flintlocks. This was a repeating flintlock developed in the early 1600’s that was able to fire multiple shots 160 years before the writing of the Constitution.

Early development of revolving cylinder firearms, predating the Constitution by over 109 years

Next on the Pre-constitutional timeline, we have One of the Earliest Six-shot Revolvers from the collection of the Royal Armory that we profiled in a previous article. The Curator of Firearms, Jonathan Ferguson notes that this wasn’t one of the earliest revolvers along with pointing out how the technology has ‘evolved’ over time.

This also brings up an important point, that arms and other weapons of self-defense were vitally important, a matter of life or death. Every living being is in a battle for survival, in the case of human society, these technologies determined its survivability. Thus it is a constant competition with these technologies constantly changing and evolving over time. Something that would have been known by the learned men that wrote the founding documents.

The Puckle or Defense Gun from 1718, was predating the Constitution by over 70 years

We have previously detailed the Puckle or Defense Gun invented in 1718 and demonstrated early ‘automatic weapon’ fire in 1721:

The Puckle Gun, or Defense Gun as it was also known, was invented and patented in 1718 by the London lawyer James Puckle.

This was an early ‘automatic weapon’ was capable of firing 63 shots in 7 minutes in 1721.

For those following along this missed the mark of being a 21st Century weapon by almost 300 years.

The multishot Girardoni Air Gun that predated the Constitution by 9 years.

This is another multishot weapon of war that existed before the Constitution.

Jover and Belton Flintlock Repeating Musket – 1786, this also predates the Constitution

Our last video of multishot or repeating firearms that predated the Constitution is the Jover and Belton Flintlock Repeating Musket from 1786. We’re trying to keep this as short as possible, thus we have left off other examples such as the Ribauldequin, Duckfoot or Nock gun.

Very much like the previous example, the Belton Flintlock Repeating Musket was known to the founding fathers because he corresponded with Congress on this weapon in 1777 [Again, before the drafting of the Constitution]. For those keeping score at home, 1786 is still is not of the 21st Century.

Leftist lies on this subject depends on a number of improbable fallacies and assumptions. The founding fathers would have known the history of technological developments and they would have expected those developments to continue. Thus rendering the fallacy that they could not have foreseen that weapons technologies wouldn’t of continued on to the point of absurdity.

The Takeaway

Unfortunately for the Liberty Grabber Left, firearms tend to be valuable historical artifacts, these videos show that multishot or repeating firearms existed well before the Constitution. Thus we have eviscerated the ‘musket myth’. It should also be evident that the violence problem hasn’t been caused by the ‘easy’ availability of guns or repeating firearms.

As is the case with most Leftist lies and prevarication’s, they depend on a lack knowledge of the subject to succeed. This is why is extremely important that everyone of the Pro-Liberty Right be apprised of these facts in engaging those of the Left who have little care for logic, science or truth. The fact that multishot or repeating firearms existed centuries ago should make it clear that the Left is lying about the subject of self-defense from beginning to end.
