(AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite) On Tuesday evening, the text of the new Senate gun control bill was released, with it being advanced by 14 Republican votes. Among those who gave their stamp of approval after just an hour of the 80-page bill being released were senators Lindsey Graham, Mitt Romney, Mike Caputo, and John Cornyn, with the latter being the lead negotiator on the legislation, working with Democrats to craft it.
RedState covered some of the most troubling provisions, including its funding of “red flag” laws while dumping billions into the partisan DOJ. A cursory reading also finds the funding to harden schools that Cornyn and others promised missing. That was supposed to be the big “win” for Republicans in this bill, but all I see are payoffs to federal bureaucracies and a few billion for community anti-violence programs.
That didn’t stop the “positive vibes” on the Senate floor, though. In fact, Cornyn previewed the next betrayal while yucking it up with Sen. Kyrsten Sinema: Immigration. More positive ~~ vibes ~~ on Senate floor. A smiling Cornyn tells Padilla, “First guns, now it’s immigration” “That’s right, we’re going to do it,” Sinema added — Igor Bobic (@igorbobic) June 21, 2022 As […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
