The left has destroyed their cause by jumping the gun and demanding confiscation Part I

The true implications of the left admitting the obvious, that it was always about gun confiscation

Over the weekend, Robert Francis O’Rouke went full authoritarian, promising that if elected, he will demand the surrender of arbitrarily designated firearms to the government.  Front runner Joe Biden called for a ban on ALL magazines.

Most people realize this is a demand for the confiscation of virtually every gun in common use. Their crossing the Rubicon in admitting the ever-present truth means that every gun owner is in the cross hairs of our betters in the national socialist left. As Dinesh D’Souza stated to Fox News’s Laura Ingraham Tuesday night: Gun Confiscators Are ‘Coming Out of the Closet’ in ‘All-Out Assault’ on 2nd Amendment. They have now decided you are no longer worthy of having the means to defend yourself.

The left is now demanding the complete surrender of a right that is inalienable

Time was, the left at least pretended that they wanted ‘compromise’, never mind that these all led to their ultimate goal. They’ve now made it clear that this was but a ruse to set things up for their final solution to the liberty problem. They have gone from pretending to want ‘compromise’ to demanding complete and unconditional surrender. Not to mention that leftists have spent decades lying and bargaining in bad faith.

It has always been a one-way street with the liberty grabber left; their idea of ‘compromise’ is that we patriots of the pro-liberty right give up more of our freedom while they give up nothing. Then the next time around they demand even more, while they ignore past ‘compromises’ and the incredible number of national, state and local laws and regulations on guns.

We don’t have to surrender our inalienable rights due to a number of tragedies

Leftists have the misguided notion that somehow we have to forfeit our basic human rights because of the insane acts of criminals. That each one has an accumulative effect and that an arbitrary number equates to our surrendering a certain amount of our Liberty. With a number of tragedies over a short time period, meaning that we have to surrender the lot.

The problem for them is that inalienable rights do not function in this way. We are all saddened by these tragedies and have a number of ideas to stop them without the need to infringe on our Liberty. However, to be blunt about the subject, we don’t have to surrender part or all of our Liberty dependent on the arbitrary calculus of the Authoritarian Socialist Left. Never mind that there is no set definition for the term ‘mass shooting’ and that the numbers they conjure up on the subject are meaningless.

The old and ridiculous lie that ‘no one is talking gun confiscation’

It used to be that the Left would talk about ‘common sense’ gun safety control reform or some other inane phraseology while parroting the ‘no one is talking gun confiscation’ lie. They could keep up the false pretense than they were moderate on the issue, that they only wanted small incremental steps.

Maintaining the ‘no one is talking gun confiscation’ lie meant that they could accuse anyone who pointed out those steps as leading to confiscation of being ‘paranoid’ and trafficking in conspiracy theories. They of course knew they were lying through their teeth, but they’ve convinced themselves that they are ‘protecting the children’ and all that rot. Thus, they rationalized that lying on the subject was perfectly acceptable.

The liberty grabber left still persists in using these tired old tropes, but now with presidential candidates calling for confiscation along with the long lists these same demands from other leftists. They can no longer fall back on one of their cherished and most sacred of lies.

The reality that the Democrats are the party of gun confiscation

As we have documented many times, the left has been demanding gun confiscation the past few years. But now recent events have seen them come out of the authoritarian closet with demands to control every aspect of our lives and this isn’t a good look for anyone.

They now have to deal with the video of backbencher Robert Francis O’Rouke demanding gun confiscation. They now have to deal with the video of frontrunner Joe Biden demanding the banning of almost every gun. They can try to deny this once again, but everyone is taking notice and it is changing the game.

In part II we will examine the full implications in the national socialist left coming out of the authoritarian closet.

Before and after footage of homeless camp after Scott Presler’s team cleaned it is shocking

Before and after footage of homeless camp after Scott Preslers team cleaned it is shocking

When conservative activist Scott Presler sees a mess, he has a natural tendency to want to clean it up. And as he travels to Democrat-controlled cities from coast to coast, he’s finding a ton of trash being left to the wind by the cities. The last two cleanups were in Baltimore. This month, it’s Los Angeles.

He and his team of conservative volunteers donned protective gear (there are needles, rodents, and other dangers ever-present in trash heaps) and went to work on cleaning a homeless camp in a Los Angeles suburb, Van Nuys. There was so much trash, it looked like it would take a small army to get it done after years of being ignored by Los Angeles officials. His early estimates stated there was over 30 tons of trash.

“With over 200 volunteers, we picked up 50 tons of trash in 9 hours,” Presler said.

The Twitter star, known as #ThePersistence (a play on the popular “#Resistance” hashtag used by Democrats and Never-Trumpers), has drawn praise from the right who appreciate the tremendous efforts and criticism from the left who believe it’s all just a publicity stunt. If this were all for publicity, there are easier (and cleaner) ways to draw attention than by spending days in the hot sun picking up other people’s garbage for free.

But the before and after videos show the work was well worth it.

After Presler Tweeted a video of his team getting started Saturday morning, Fox News host Laura Ingraham called for federal assistance to tackle the growing homelessness and drug abuse problems in America, particularly in cities like Los Angeles.

It’s a point Presler has been making for months. Why is so much attention paid by Democrats on living conditions for illegal immigrants when American citizens are literally living in garbage?

When all was said and done, Pressler’s team eclipsed their Baltimore efforts which cleaned up 19 tons of trash to leave an area clean that once held 50 tons of trash.

When asked about his motivations, Presler said, “The highlight of the day was when a homeless woman said to me, ‘Thank you for keeping your promise.'”

Indeed, he did.

His next promise is to return to Baltimore for a third round of cleanup there on October 5th.

We often sit at our keyboards and complain about things needing to be done. By following Scott Presler’s example, conservatives came together to rid an area of Los Angeles of 50 tons of dangerous trash. As Presler says, #StopTalkingStartDoing.

Allen West: ‘America and Texas need victors… not victims’

Allen West America and Texas need victors not victims

One of the many reasons we endorsed Lt. Col. Allen West for Texas Republican Chair is because he represents something that is desperately needed in the ranks of the GOP: Courage. The party has been infiltrated by too many “leaders” who are feckless and unimaginative. They promote business as usual, cutting deals behind closed doors with progressives that do not promote the Constitutional conservatism this nation desperately needs.

So much attention is being paid to the national side of politics. Many Republicans watch the Democratic debates to laugh and gather ammunition against the eventual nominee, but fewer are focused on the state and local government that are the cornerstone of both limited-government federalism and proper Constitutional conservatism. As we push forward with the American Conservative Movement, we do so knowing that there must be a return of focus within the GOP on localized government where real action can be taken.

Government starts with the individual. We, as Americans, are the highest level of government, followed by local, city, county, state, and finally the safety net at the bottom, the federal government. That is how it was always supposed to be. It wasn’t until DC’s ongoing power grab started panning federalism that the power of the individual was diminished.

We don’t need panderers in DC or deal-makers/breakers at the state level. We need real leaders to represent our interest. America and Texas need Lt. Col. Allen West to make the Lone Star State a bright shade of red once again.

“Texas and America need statesmen and women who tell the people what they need to hear… as opposed to politicians who tell the people what they think they want to hear. I seek to restore the right relationship between the sovereignty of the individual citizen and the institution of government. And, in doing so, restore the honor of our Constitutional Republic, and its greatest state, the Lone Star State of Texas. America and Texas need victors… not victims.” – Lt. Col. Allen West

Bold, aggressive leadership is desperately needed in Texas. As the Lone Star State goes, so too does the entire GOP. Democrats want to turn it blue and state GOP leaders aren’t stopping them. Lt. Col. Allen West will get the job done.

Gun control will be a litmus test for RINOs to primary in 2020

Gun control will be a litmus test for RINOs to primary in 2020

Gun control is a hot topic. Nearly the entirety of the modern day Democratic Party wants gun control measures in place at the local, state, or national level that they influence. This has been and always will be one of the main reasons conservatives vote for Republicans – as a shield against the gun-grabbers.

But today, many Republican lawmakers are leaning towards “common sense” gun control measures. Whether it’s universal background checks that lead to a national gun registry, red flag gun laws that sidestep due process, or outright gun bans that will turn hundreds of thousands of law-abiding citizens into criminals if they are unwilling to give up their rights, the attacks against the 2nd Amendment are growing in scope and scale.

We will be watching very closely at how Republican politicians discuss and vote in regards to gun control measures. It’s a litmus test; either they are willing to defend the 2nd Amendment or they are betraying their oath to protect the Constitution.

As the American Conservative Movement inches closer to officially launching, we will use this litmus test and a feasibility analysis to determine which RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) are poised for a Constitutional conservative challenger in their next election. We must be pragmatic about this. There’s no reason to invest in primary battles that have no chance. But if a lawmaker favors gun control and is vulnerable, we will go on the attack.

This is, of course, secondary to the primary goal of removing progressives from office. Like a political Hippocratic Oath, we will not do harm to the republic by bolstering a progressive candidate against a moderate Republican. If it isn’t feasible to replace a RINO with a Constitutional conservative who will win the general election, we will direct our efforts elsewhere. Gun control is a litmus test, not an ironclad call for immediate opposition.

We will not repeat the mistakes of those who came before us, who occasionally did so much harm to the Republican they tried to primary that they ended up helping a Democrat take over the position. We will also not attack for the sake of attacking. If we are unable to find a viable candidate to replace the RINO, then we’ll move on and search harder next election.

Installing Constitutional conservatives into the halls of government requires a systematic approach. Gun control will help us identify targets. Realistic yet passionate grassroots efforts will help us push the right people into office.
