By backing red flag gun laws Lindsey Graham does harm to the 2A

Senator Lindsey Graham has been in state of flux throughout his long career when it comes to placement on the ideological scale. Most of the time, he acts like a moderate who’s all-too-eager to make deals with Democrats to foster his reputation as one willing to cross the aisle. Occasionally, he seems like the conservative he claims to be every election cycle. But now he’s writing up a bill with the Democrats that will incentivize states to institute red flag gun laws, also known as gun confiscation SWATing.

The Senator hopes to get bipartisan support for the legislation which will offer grants to states who play ball.

Opinion

This is one of those “common sense” gun laws that are easy to sell to the masses. On the left, anything that can be used to disarm the population is worthwhile. On the right, many Republicans (including the President) support this measure because it’s the type of action that most people believe would never affect them directly.

What the misled Republicans like Graham fail to realize is the current laws in place are more than sufficient to keep gun crime to a minimum. If those laws were better enforced, there would be no need for additional laws.

The problem with laws like these is that due process is barely a token mentioned in the process. If anything, the use of the term “due process” by those pushing the bill is a meaningless ploy to prevent people from actually seeking forms of due process that could ever be attached to these initiatives. There’s no way to make red flag gun laws Constitutional, but supporters hope they can get around the Constitution on this particular issue.

They cannot. We must not let them.

Gun violence is difficult enough to stop with the current laws barely being enforced. By throwing red flag gun laws into the mix, the waters will be made murkier and the expansion of gun confiscations will continue until the only guns held by American citizens are those hidden by criminals. The bad guys are going to make gains as a result of a law like this.

Whenever the left gets an inch on issues like gun control, we can expect them to take a mile. Graham knows this but will do what he wants.

Quote

“I’m seeking to incentivize states to produce extreme risk protective order legislation that has ample due process but also is meaningful in protecting the public from somebody who is dangerous.” Senator Lindsey Graham

Final Thoughts

What part of “shall not be infringed” does the Senator not understand. These aren’t criminals. They’re potential criminals who have lose their guns because of the potential of a crime being committed. This isn’t what America is all about.

Pete Buttigieg’s failure as a mayor should be a warning about his presidency

Pete Buttigiegs failure as a mayor should be a warning about his presidency

If Pete Buttigieg can’t handle running South Bend, Indiana, how can he possibly handle running the entire country and being the de facto leader of the free world? That’s the question voters should be asking when they look at the candidates being offered to them through the Democratic field of potential nominees.

But here’s the problem. As badly as Buttigieg has handled his home town, his failures are still small compared to the failures of his competition, especially at the top of the pack. Joe Biden is a joke, a mediocre Senator and worthless Vice President whose only real qualification for the nomination is that his policies are slightly less insane than the other frontrunners.

Bernie Sanders is a communist and a hypocrite, calling for $15 per hour nationwide but failing to pay his own people a living wage. He rails against the rich, then tells people if they write best selling books they can be rich like him. His tune is old and it’s not getting any younger.

Elizabeth Warren is the strangest person to be among the frontrunners because her policies are so radical, one has to question the sanity of those supporting her. She represents an existential threat as she does everything she can to be to the left of radical progressives like Sanders.

As for Kamala Harris, she has the race card. She’s an intersectionality darling who slept her way to the top. And her only positive contributions in politics – being tough on crime in progressive California – are the very things her campaign is running away from at every turn.

Despite winning the 2nd quarter money race, Mayor Pete’s candidacy is one police exodus away from being done.

South Bend cops warn of ‘mass exodus,’ as morale tanks over Buttigieg handling of shooting

“Morale around here has been terrible. We do nothing,” one police officer, a 20-year veteran of the force, told Fox News. “We call ourselves firemen, we sit around in parking lots until we’re called and then we go to the call, because if you say or do something wrong, then you get hung.”

“At an all-time low,” another officer said of morale. “It’s been really demoralizing and hard to come to work lately.”

Officers requested not to be identified for this story in fear of retaliation by the mayor’s administration. But they told Fox News that they know of multiple officers who are considering handing in their badges or taking retirement if eligible, in response to the mayor’s handling of the shooting.

“That’s the big discussion … is who’s staying and who’s going. I think you’re going to see a mass exodus, our administration is a joke,” one officer said.

The only things keeping Mayor Pete from falling apart like Beto O’Rourke is the media still likes him and his city hasn’t completely crumbled. Yet. But if the trends continue, he could be struggling to keep his small town from falling apart.

Only 35% of Americans oppose ICE raids

Only 36 of Americans oppose ICE raids

Anyone who listens to legacy media outlets or spends enough time on progressive social media sites probably thinks the ICE raids on illegal immigrants with deportation orders are unpopular. “The Squad” rails against them. Progressive pundits scream until they’re nearly in tears. The various echo chambers get hashtags trending about how wrong it is to capture people who have broken the law and been properly adjudicated to be removed from the country.

But a majority of Americans support the raids.

A recent POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows 51% of Americans support the raids, while only 35% oppose them. This number should be shocking considering all the anti-raid propaganda being pushed by the left, but it’s really not. Americans are generally believers in law and order. They’re aware of the generosity of the nation despite attempts to paint us as callous and to promote the narrative that the President is uncaring.

We are also aware that those targeted by ICE aren’t random people of foreign descent despite the progressive talking points used by nearly every legacy media outlet. They were all given an opportunity to demonstrate that they were fleeing oppression that falls into the context of asylum. But the vast majority – around 90% – never even show up to their hearing to make the case. This is because they’ve been told if they can simply claim asylum and then disappear into the interior, nothing will happen to them.

It’s important for these raids to move forward, increase in frequency, and extend indefinitely until the message is sent to countries with millions of people preparing to take the dangerous journey to our southern border. The message must be made clear: If they do not want to go through the legal process to enter and stay in the country, they will be sent back. With that message delivered, much fewer will attempt it.

The greatest asset conservatives have is the truth. We must not allow Democrats and their media allies to convince us their lies are true. Americans are aware of the problem at the southern border. We must keep the pressure up.

Funny how nobody mentioned AOC interned for Ted Kennedy

Funny how nobody mentioned AOC interned for Ted Kennedy

Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the Chappaquiddick incident when a drunken Senator Ted Kennedy drove his car off a bridge. He escaped, but his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne, drowned. He didn’t report the accident for 12 hours.

Mainstream media has spent the last half-century covering up the tragedy to give the popular Senator from Massachusetts political cover. They’re continuing to do it even today.

Associated Press On Chappaquiddick: 50 Years Ago Today, Kennedy’s Car Did Something

Give the Associated Press credit for media consistency. News outlets have spent the last 50 years attempting to distance Ted Kennedy from Chappaquiddick, and this passive-voice remembrance is … perfect.

As Twitter pal Jeff Dobbs puts it, the real crime is that the car got away with it:

Let’s start this in reverse, as it’s the best way to put this in perspective. It’s not true that Kopechne “drowned.” The coroner never autopsied the body, itself a curious omission when dealing with an unattended death of a healthy young woman. Eyewitness testimony by the person who recovered her body at the scene, as well as the position of the body, strongly suggests she suffocated after spending a significant amount of time exhausting the oxygen in the air bubble of the submerged car.

The continuous downplaying of the tragic events by mainstream media is awful. But there’s another angle that nobody is covering. Even as many Democrats, especially far-left progressives, are starting to finally denounce the Senator for his actions all those decades ago, there seems to be no concern that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez chose to intern for the Senator as she began her political career.

Kennedy was a Democratic icon, not because of his accomplishments but because of his name. He let Mary Jo Kopechne die at Chappaquiddick, but that’s been forgiven by everyone, including his former intern Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. How woke.
