When I first saw the headline come across my feed-reader, I assumed The Onion or Babylon Bee was trolling the progressive Mecca of San Francisco. When I saw it was Fox News, I realized the leftist predisposition for accepting doublethink had reared its ugly head once again.
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has officially declared the National Rifle Association (NRA) is a “domestic terrorist group” because they “promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence.” Seriously.
They’re even encouraging others to take the same plunge into their virtue-signalling dystopia, including Washington DC.
“All countries have violent and hateful people, but only in America do we give them ready access to assault weapons and large-capacity magazines thanks, in large part, to the National Rifle Association’s influence,” the resolution says.
The document resolves to assess the relationships that those who do business with the city have with the group and says “the City and County of San Francisco should take every reasonable step to limit those entities who do business with the City and County of San Francisco from doing business with this domestic terrorist organization.”
The resolution cites the July mass shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, in which three people were killed. KTVU reports that the resolution’s author wrote the text after that shooting.
The NRA responded by calling the resolution a stunt that was distracting from the city’s myriad of social problems.
“This ludicrous stunt by the Board of Supervisors is an effort to distract from the real problems facing San Francisco, such as rampant homelessness, drug abuse and skyrocketing petty crime, to name a few,” the statement said, according to KTVU. “The NRA will continue working to protect the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans.”
The NRA is spot-on with their assessment. San Francisco is loaded with some of the worst problems a major American city can face. On top of the problems the NRA listed, San Francisco suffers from extreme income disparity (ironic for socialists), insane cost of living, and literal human feces covering their sidewalks. They have disease, rodent infestations, and a general dysfunction in government that fails to address any of it in a meaningful way.
The NRA is one of the leading OPPONENTS of gun violence as their goal of defending the 2nd Amendment is aligned with the more logical solution to crime: gun ownership. But San Francisco leadership has deluded itself into believing guns are the problem. In reality, criminals are the problem, and an armed population of law-abiding citizens is the best defense against criminals.
In the era of “Do Something,” leave it to the failed leadership of San Francisco to come up with the most ludicrous “something” imaginable. They have people dying in the streets, but their focus is on virtue-signalling in hopes it will keep them in office.

One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
