Trump: ‘I’d rather run against Biden than anybody. I think he’s the weakest mentally.’

Published

on

President Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden were both in Iowa today. They were both attacking each other. As far as they’re both concerned, the Democratic primary is a formality and the only two men in the race to spend a significant amount of time in the Oval Office will be head-to-head next November.

We might as well get the fireworks started now.

Biden called the President an “existential threat” to the nation. It’s an odd choice of attacks since this isn’t the first election for the President. He’s already in office. One would think if he were really an existential threat we would have already seen it manifest in the past 2.5 years. Instead, we’re seeing increased prosperity. If it’s true, then President Trump is failing miserably at being an existential threat. The country is heading in the right direction.

Meanwhile, the President fired back by declaring Biden as the guy he’d most like to run against. He’s the “weakest mentally,” according to the President, and he loves going up against people who are weak-minded.

The Democrats may believe they have choices right now, but as far as Biden and Trump are concerned, the general election might as well have already started. Sleepy Joe already seems like he needs a nap.

Conservatives are a hard ‘NO’ on gun control

Conservatives are a hard NO on gun control

This week, the GOP and President Trump intend to put out a plan to slow gun violence in general and mass shootings in particular. Some are assuming this means adopting the Democrats’ universal background checks, progressive red flag gun laws, or both. To the President and representatives of the GOP, we of the conservative right are a hard “NO” on any such restrictions to the 2nd Amendment.

Let’s look at the three major pushes underway right now…

Universal background checks are a not just a slippery slope. They’re a Slip ‘n Slide sprayed down with WD-40 that lead us down a path. That path includes stops at purchasing restrictions and a national gun registry that leads to the bottom of the hill where full-blown gun confiscations take effect. This is why the left has been pushing so hard for them despite the fact that none of the mass shootings they claim they’re trying to prevent would actually have been affected if UBCs were in place. It’s a con job, plain and simple.

Red flag gun laws have some populist appeal because they seem to address the problem of mental illness. The problem is that it does so with a complete disregard for due process. Victims of red flag gun laws are guilty until they can prove themselves innocent. Moreover, there are already laws in place that allow concerned citizens, medical professionals, and law enforcement officers to utilize due process to legally restrict firearms for those who can be proven to be dangers to themselves or others. With those laws on the books, red flag gun laws are a lazy redundancy.

Assault weapons bans… there really should be no reason to describe why this is a horrible idea to those who will read this. But just in case, we know the 2nd Amendment was designed to keep government from disarming the people in a way that would prevent them from fighting back against an oppressive regime, foreign or domestic. The scary “weapons of war” the left wants to ban are only unreasonable to protect to those who don’t know the facts or understand what firearms like the AR-15 really do. Are they used for murder by a handful of mentally ill criminals? Yes. But they are NOT used for murder by the tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of owners who are law-abiding citizens.

Some Republican lawmakers seem to think they’ll appease the left and center by betraying their oath to protect the Constitution, including the 2nd Amendment. This is not true. They will never thank the GOP for gun control. It will always be Democrats who get credit for pressuring Republicans to reluctantly act. Any form of gun control enacted by this Congress and signed by this administration will be a betrayal to the conservative American patriots who look to the GOP to do what’s right for the Constitution and the American people. Instead of reacting to flawed polls asking questions of the ignorant, they need to spend more time educating the people that gun control doesn’t work and is unconstituional to boot.

If the GOP turns its back on the conservative base, they may not lose all of our votes. We’re pragmatic in knowing we won’t be voting for Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden. But our enthusiasm for the party will drop dramatically. Our financial support will dry up. Our passionate defense of Republican doctrine will be replaced by lukewarm support of the lesser of two evils. We expect the GOP to defend the 2nd Amendment. Otherwise, we get disillusioned by the feckless pandering to a left-leaning group of Americans who are going to vote Democrat in 2020 anyway.

Patriots, we need your help. Spread the word. We need the President and Republican lawmakers to know where we stand. If you agree with this assessment, retweet the following Tweet, like and share the following Facebook post, and share this post with all of your acquaintances through email. We need to get dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of patriots echoing this sentiment to the GOP before they make the mistake that seems to be looming over us all.

Millions of American conservatives voted for President Trump and the GOP because we want them to defend the 2nd Amendment without giving an inch. The enthusiasm behind our support hinges on the GOP saying “NO” to gun control, period.

What part of NO to gun confiscation do they not understand?

What part of NO to gun confiscation do they not understand

A meaningless photo-op in exchange for a gun registration scheme isn’t worth the tyranny.

Now that Chuck and Nancy have proposed a photo-op that will sink President Donald Trump’s electoral chances in a ‘read my lips’ moment, we the patriots of the pro-liberty right need to consider our response to their demands for a de facto gun registration scheme. Anyone paying attention should realize that the authoritarian socialist left has dropped the mask, openly calling for gun confiscation with ‘universal’ background checks being the next step to the edge of the cliff.

The socialist left loves to play games with words and phrases, trying to bend reality to its lies and prevarication’s every step of the way. In this case, dropping the word ‘universal’ or ‘enhanced’ from the phrase background check in a bid to deceive the public once again into thinking they desperately want something that already exists.

Why are they putting all of their gun confiscation eggs in one ‘universal’ basket?

Gone are the demands for the immediate confiscation of ‘weapons of war’, most people realized that could apply to any object used to assault someone. At one point in time, stone knives and spears were ‘weapons of war’ or anything else Robert Francis O’Rourke would like to demonize.

They still want the ability to send in a SWAT team to confiscate guns from the innocent for ‘wrongthink’ or undefined ‘hate speech’. But now they are laying all of their gun grabbing cards on the table in a last desperate overreach.

Those who cannot grasp the importance of this issue need to consider why the left is putting so much effort into this step. Why have they obsessed over ‘universal’ background checks for so many years?

Trump’s surrender on this issue will only momentarily placate the left.

If this takes place, expect that Chuck and Nancy to walk away from that ‘historic’ moment and immediately demand gun registration and confiscation. It will be quickly forgotten – except by those who supported Donald Trump because of his 2nd Amendment stance. That will spell disaster in the presidential election.

Everyone needs to realize that in essence, gun registration is gun confiscation and now that they dropped kicked that mask into the next county, it is obvious why they want this. It was always about gun confiscation for the liberty grabber left, their abject lies over the years thinly veiled attempts at hiding the truth.

They’ve already stated that ‘universal’ background checks are just a starting ‘base’ while they have been openly demanding gun confiscation for years, so why would anyone knuckle under to these charlatans?

We already have background checks, why do they lie and pretend that we don’t?

It used to be that the leftists were at least honest, couching the issue in the straightforward terms of ‘universal’, ‘enhanced’ or our favorite ‘intergalactic’ background checks. These days they have dropped those qualifiers with the false pretense that background checks are something new.

This alone should illustrate why we cannot trust the left in any realm. The implication that background checks are new is a false ‘selling point’ for those who are not knowledgeable about the subject. It falsely implies that this will ‘solve’ the problem when it will do nothing of the kind.

Talking about this in these terms is also abjectly dishonest, lumping a quasi constitutional process with that which is not. Asserting government control over private property would not only set up a registration regime, it would also set a dangerous precedent for other types of controls or taxes on everyone’s property on a national level.

Leftists pushing polling data that has unheard of agreement on certain issues. When has 90% of the country agreed on anything?

No to compromises that will lead the destruction of our rights.

Those who are truly patriotic and love our country know that the 2nd Amendment is the cornerstone of our representative republic. It was only the first objective in the authoritarian socialist left’s assault on liberty. They have already expanded their attacks to the first, fourth and fifth amendments. There should be no doubt that it won’t stop at one inalienable human right.

Now is the time to stand up for liberty and shout in one clear voice that we will not accept the subjugation of liberty. Now is the time to make it clear that we will not accept any type collective punishment for the crimes of a few miscreants. Now is the time to make it clear that the left caused this problem in the first place and we will not abide their use of this crisis as a power grab.

Everyone needs to consider why the left is lying about this issue in a myriad number of ways. Why is it so important that they will seemingly elevate president Trump while they are in the full throes of TDS?

The authoritarian socialist left wants this step because they need it to initiate gun confiscation. They have made it clear that is their final solution to the liberty problem, that is why we cannot move a micron on this issue, whether it is a ‘defeat’ or not. The long-term implications for freedom are far too important to fritter it away to meaningless photo-op.

Gun control would sink the GOP’s 2020 hopes

Gun control would sink the GOPs 2020 hopes

There are many reasons to believe the 2020 election could be a red wave as the Republican Party makes gains in the Senate, takes back control of the House of Representatives, and secures a second term for President Trump. But current considerations of “common sense” gun control measures such as universal background checks, red flag gun laws, and assault weapons bans by some on the right are incorrectly being perceived as good political moves.

Passing gun control will not have a positive impact on the way the electorate sees the GOP. In fact, doing so will sink the GOP’s chances and could put the White House in jeopardy.

Lest we forget, there is no scenario in which gun control advocates on the left or even in the center will view the passage of gun control measures as a Republican strength. There’s a reason Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have “offered” to have a Rose Garden ceremony for the signing of their laws. They know the American people will credit them with getting the President to bend rather than the supposed narrative that Republicans are doing things to stop gun violence. Mainstream media will herald the moment as an example of Democrats forcing the will of the American people onto a reluctant GOP and capitulating President.

Signing any of these measures into law will make the President look weak to the left, weaker to the center, and weakest to President Trump’s conservative base on the right. It will be a betrayal regardless of how the White House spins it. Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy can release all the proclamations of victory they want, but this will be viewed as a win by Chuck, Nancy, and the Democrats.

It will embolden them and inspire their base to want more. That’s the nature of gun control. It always needs more because it never achieves the goals it claims to desire. Every mass shooting will bring about more calls to “do something.” Every rise is gun violence will be met with irrational calls to take away even more aspects of our 2nd Amendment rights while any decrease in gun violence will be used as an example of how gun control works.

As Senator Ted Cruz noted last week, “If Republicans abandon the 2nd Amendment and demoralize millions of Americans who care deeply about 2nd Amendment rights, that could go a long way to electing a President Elizabeth Warren.”

Republicans on Capitol Hill and in the White House MUST stand true to the Constitution and our 2nd Amendment rights. Even the slightest display of weakness will be disastrous for America as well as their 2020 election hopes. They need to stop listening to polls showing ignorant people supporting gun control and take to the streets and airwaves to educate people about why gun control doesn’t work.

Instead of saying “we need a plan” or even “we have a plan” that includes gun control against law-abiding citizens, the President and the rest of the GOP needs to put 100% of their efforts and messaging towards combating crime and mental illness. Gun control is about inanimate objects, the vast majority of which are not used by criminals. Getting tougher on crime and putting more emphasis on mental illness goes to the core of the gun violence problem.

The biggest political mistake the GOP could make is to weaken the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens because of irrational, emotional responses to gun violence. Real solutions go after criminals. Gun control is not a real solution.
