Congress launches new round of tyrannical attacks on Second Amendment

Congress launches new round of tyrannical attacks on Second Amendment

One of the priorities identified by Nancy Pelosi in her campaign to become Speaker of the House following the Democrat’s historic victory in the 2018 mid-term election was gun control. So, it should come as no surprise that the House will vote on, and likely pass, two major pieces of anti-gun-rights legislation this week.

The first bill is the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 — aka H.R.8 in recognition of the eighth anniversary of the shooting of the former Rep. Gabby Giffords in January 2001. The bill was co-sponsored by five Republicans:

Under the BBCA, a federal background check will not only be required on all gun sales, including private sales, it will also be required for the private transfer of firearms. Have a friend or relative who would like to borrow your firearm for an upcoming hunting trip? That will no longer be legal without a federal background check.

The second bill is the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019 (H.R.1112), a bill that eliminates the requirement that background checks be completed in three days and extends it for up to twenty business days. Due to some confusion with the fine print in this bill, along with some mushy provisions in the Fix NICS law that Trump and the GOP buried within the March 2018 omnibus, this measure will give the federal government unfettered power to block public and private gun sales and transfers.

While Trump, the GOP, and their friends at FOX News will chalk this up as further evidence of Far-Left extremism, the simple fact remains that they support Pelosi’s anti-gun agenda. In a White House meeting held just after the mid-terms, Trump endorsed the increasingly popular Red Flag Law, telling Democrats that the government should be able to take guns from private citizens “whether they have the right or not” and if necessary, government should “take the guns first, go through due process second.”

When it comes to Red Flag Laws — aka Extreme Risk Protection Orders or ERPOs — Republicans in the Senate have been working to expand government’s power to seize the weapons of law-abiding citizens without due process.

Sen. Lindsey Graham co-sponsored a bill with Sen. Richard Blumenthal that would federalize ERPOs and give the federal courts jurisdiction over the states. And Sen. Marco Rubio recently re-introduced the Extreme Risk Protection Order and Violence Protection Act, a bill that would use federal funds to pay states to pass ERPO laws.

Whether the two background check bills make it through Congress or not is irrelevant. The real issue we should be focusing on is how such laws are being considered in the first place … and how there is so little resistance to tyranny in Washington.

Blue Collar Logic: How the left is acting like a villain who wants to be caught

Blue Collar Logic How the left is acting like a villain who wants to be caught

There are many ways to look at the unprecedented lurch to the left the Democratic Party has been experiencing over the last couple of years. Some, particularly the radical progressives leading the charge, see it as a natural evolution of ideas as their delicate sensibilities blossom. Establishment Democrats see them as a backlash against losing so inexplicably with Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Many Republicans don’t see much of a difference other than a more vocal expression of what they’ve held in their hearts for some time.

The folks over at Blue Collar Logic have a different take. They’re seeing the strange actions and hyper-leftist lurching by the Democrats as a transition into a criminal mindset. Whether consciously or subconsciously, they’re throwing out ideas that make very little sense even when compared to what they’ve said in the past. Like a criminal that wants to be caught, they’re leaving clues that they know what they’re doing and saying is wrong, but they feel compelled to do them anyway.

The clearest example to me is the notion that abortions can and should be a consideration even after an “unwanted” baby is born following a botched abortion. Even in the most evil levels of consciousness, there has to be a sense of wrongdoing in the way they’re describing the events as they can hypothetically happen based on what’s being proposed in some states today, but they continue down this road as if they’re unaffected by logic or compassion. The push for “women’s rights” has so superseded their thinking when it comes to abortion that the most extreme version of abortion must be the one that they embrace.

As we approach the 2020 election season, let’s keep a close eye on the rhetoric and radical policy proposals candidates are throwing out. Just because it’s on record doesn’t mean enough voters will hear them. We need their ideas to stick to them like evidence in a murder case.

Trump hits Biden on China connections

Trump hits Biden on China connections

One thing has been made clear by recent events as they pertain to China: They are dying for someone to beat President Trump next November. In many ways, they’re banking on it.

This should make every American, including Democrats, concerned because even more than Russia, China has the capabilities to get in and change the hearts and minds of Americans, hack the 2020 election, and set in motion events that will benefit them. We’re talking about a country with nearly unlimited resources when it comes to cyberwarfare and social engineering. If Russia was ever a real concern to Washington DC, China is the true 800-lb gorilla in the political influence room.

The President called out former Vice President Joe Biden for his and his family’s involvement in China. Speaking to Steve Hilton on the Fox News show, The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton, the President pointed to alarming facts about the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination.

The threat from China is far greater than that from Russia, both economically as well as geopolitically. They have been a stirring giant for years. For the 2020 election, their stirring may turn into game-changing action if we’re not watchful.

How Alabama’s abortion law sets President Trump up to be a pragmatist

How Alabamas abortion law sets President Trump up to be a pragmatist

One of the favorite tactics for both major political parties is to paint opposing candidates as extremists. This is particularly true when it comes to presidential candidates; if you don’t recall, every Republican candidate since Ronald Reagan has been painted as a bigot by Democrats. But whether or not the people fall for the extremism play is usually based, at least to some degree, on reality.

That may not be the case in the 2020 election as both media and the expressions of the people seem to be favoring extremism as a reality rather than just a label. The President is a far-right bigot in the eyes of Democrats while every Democratic candidate (with the possible exception of Joe Biden) is a far-left socialist in the eyes of Republicans. Meanwhile, mainstream media is engaged in confirmation bias to appease their audiences. One need only look at coverage of the Mueller report to see how this is unmistakably true.

On the issue of abortion, the Democratic candidates have made no attempts to appeal to the middle. As each is either asked for or volunteers their perspective on abortion, invariably they are pushing no restrictions whatsoever. This is a far cry from the days when the Clintons thought abortions should be safe, legal, and rare. Today, abortions are to be embraced as far as Democrats are concerned, and any attempt to push for adoption or to fight for the rights of the child in the womb is considered bigoted. One by one, every Democratic candidate is adopting abortion extremism as their stated stance.

But President Trump did something yesterday that makes sense from a political perspective. I may disagree with his stance, but it’s a winning strategy for his reelection campaign. He said he is pro-life with exceptions for rape, incest, and the life of the mother. This stance was once considered to be an extreme position for the right, but with the Alabama abortion bill removing exceptions for rape and incest, the President has the luxury of being closer to the middle than any of his opponents (again, with the possible exception of Biden – we’ll find out soon enough).

Thankfully, the President of the United States has very little they can do when it comes to abortion other than pick pro-life judges and act as the leader of their party. Executive orders on abortion would be certainly struck down regardless of what they say, so it comes down to ideological purity. With Democrats taking on abortion-on-demand as their stated radical stance, it’s hard to argue that the President is the extremist when even he doesn’t directly support the Alabama bill. He didn’t call it out, but by stating his personal position he established that he’s not as far to the right as the Democrats are to the left.

Today, the Democrats must embrace their primary voters, many of whom are the radical progressives “shouting their abortions” and pushing for a socialistic Dystopian future for America. Meanwhile, the President has the luxury of being more pragmatic with his approach since he’s already in general election mode. He doesn’t need to appeal to his base very much because they either stand behind him out of adoration or they fear the Democrats too much to consider going against him. Even most #NeverTrumpers are having a hard time reconciling their hatred for the President with the current batch of hardline hyper-leftists vying for the Democratic nomination.

We can argue the nuances of being pro-life and having exceptions, but as long as the Democrats are all onboard for on-demand abortions, the President’s less extreme stance on abortion will help him next November.
