That NewMan in Washington Again!

MAKING ROOM FOR FREEDOM AGAIN IN AMERICA AND THE GLORIOUS PASSING OF CNN

Advertisements

Sweet Flake, Eugene Robinson, Popular Urban Leftist, Blames Guns’ Brainy Ability to Think, Travel, Select Victims

The Issue Is Not Mental Health. It’s Guns.

WASHINGTON — Don’t tell me the issue is mental health. Save the nonsense about “good guys” with weapons somehow being the answer. The truth is this: There would have been no tragic shooting Wednesday in Parkland, Florida, if a troubled young man had not gotten his hands on a military-style assault rifle and as much ammunition as he wanted.

Many people knew that Nikolas Cruz was troubled, violent and liable to explode. Yet nothing kept him from acquiring the gun he allegedly used to kill 17 students and faculty members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in yet another senseless slaughter of the kind that still shocks but no longer surprises.

President Trump addressed the nation, saying we must “answer hate with love” and vowing to “tackle the difficult issue of mental health.” But he made no mention of gun control — meaning he might as well have said nothing at all.

According to news reports in The Washington Post and other outlets, Cruz, 19, had been repeatedly suspended and then expelled from the high school for disciplinary problems. He had sought and received treatment at a mental health clinic, but stopped attending. He showed signs of depression. His posts on social media were so unsettling that they scared acquaintances away. His father died several years ago and his mother, with whom he was close, passed away around Thanksgiving. The leader of a white nationalist group claimed that Cruz was a member.

And he had a fetish for guns.

To say there were warning signs about Cruz is a gross understatement. There were flashing red lights and blaring sirens.

“I think everyone in this school had it in the back of their mind that if anyone was supposed to do it, it was most likely going to be him,” a former classmate told the Post — “do it” meaning the kind of homicidal rampage we saw Wednesday. A math teacher at the school told the Miami Herald that Cruz had threatened students before being expelled, and that “he wasn’t allowed on campus with a backpack on him.”

It was obvious that a tragedy might be coming. Yet, as a society, we refused to take the steps that could have prevented it.

How many alienated and disturbed young men are out there, rattling around peaceful suburbs like Parkland? Many thousands, surely. Some will get the help they need; some won’t. Most will never act on their violent urges; some will.

It is impossible to imagine a mental health system with the scope, authority and resources necessary to prevent every Parkland or Newtown or Columbine. In Cruz’s case, in fact, the existing system worked: He got professional help. School administrators knew he could pose a threat. According to news reports, a tipster even tried to alert the FBI that Cruz wanted to be “a professional school shooter.”

Yet in February 2017, Cruz was able to legally purchase an AR-15-style assault rifle from a local gun shop. With no criminal record or anything else in his past that would raise an official red flag, he sailed through a background check.

Apologists for the National Rifle Association will cynically use this circumstance to argue against a common-sense measure that four out of five Americans support: universal background checks for gun purchases. That wouldn’t have stopped the Parkland massacre, they will claim — diverting attention from the fact that universal checks could have prevented some mass shootings in the past and would surely prevent some in the future.

At the heart of the matter, though, lies the gun.

There are disturbed individuals like Cruz in countries around the world, but only the United States suffers mass shootings so regularly that they have almost become routine. Why? Because you can’t shoot up a school or a night club or a country music concert the way it was done in Parkland, Orlando and Las Vegas if you don’t have access to weapons of war that were designed for the battlefield.

The Supreme Court has made clear that the Second Amendment, while guaranteeing the right to keep and bear arms, is not absolute. The Bill of Rights was written in the era of muskets and dueling pistols. We don’t allow private citizens to own surface-to-air missiles capable of downing an airliner, so why do we let them own assault rifles designed not to shoot targets or game but to kill human beings in large numbers?

This is madness. Look at those grieving parents in Parkland. Know that because of the NRA, others surely will soon join their ranks…..

(ghr:   Wow!  Can those guns sure get around to cause trouble!!!!   I wonder how they can drive cars, pay bus fares, pull their triggers!)

Leftist Feminist Ruth Bader Ginsburg Mouths again for Her Hillary for Public Consumtion

“Throughout my life’s experience, about sixty five  per cent of the American Jew of voting age throughout the country and where I have lived in Minnesota  support to feverishly support   leftwingers in local and national elections.  I have lived, schooled,  or worked  in their urban settlements for most of my life.   They are moneyed,  big business, lawyer world, New York Times and Washington Post and such  news  folk, along with those who  prowl around the nation’s universities selling Noam Chomsky mouthings and Howard Zinn history of our America.

And then there’s politically driven, America’s Chomsky-like  ancient, slouchy,   mouthy, crotchety,  noted President Trump hater, a leftist, often sleepy in performance,  Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Judge of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Most,  nearly all judges of the U.S. Supreme Court  in my lifetime  have not, do not advertise their political favorites for public consumption…..but then there is dear Ruth, still pining for her beloved  Hillary gal……below,  expressing her disdain for those white Gentile males who have made life so impossible for Americans since the year AD1776.

P.S.  If you are out and about on Saturdays, especially during the non-winter months,  you are likely to come across black clothed males, some with beards walking along with their families along the side streets to synagogue, don’t further despair……they are Godfearing, not  Hillalryloving…..and those whom I have met, love democratic, not Democratic America, as I do.  (ghr)

Ginsburg: Election 2016 too ‘macho’ for Hillary to win

by Cheryl K. Chumley  at the Washington Times:

“Hillary Clinton has spent most of her days, post-election, pining about her loss and blaming it on the deplorables who followed President Donald Trump — the so-called sexist, misogynist atmosphere she perceives as marking her race to the White House.

Well now, here comes Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, tossing the same gender card. And not for the first time, either.

When asked by CNN’s Poppy Harlow during a Columbia University forum to clarify her previously made comments about sexism during the election year — that it was a “major factor” in determining the outcome — Ginsburg didn’t walk back, but rather ran head-first forward.

“I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign,” Ginsburgsaid, The Hill reported. “[S]he was criticized in a way I think no men would have been criticized. I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer the same way I did, yes, that sexism played a prominent role…..”

Crooked Comey Has the Jitters, turns to Twitters about FBI 2016 Criminal Engagement with Hillary

JAMES COMEY, FBI IN BIG TROUBLE!?!

(Our American  arrogant 6’8″ corrupt former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is in the Twitter mood the day before the document of FBI corruption with the Hillary Democrats becomes available to honest,  learned American citizens.

Mr. 6’8″ is in a mess of his own making.  While director of the nation’s Federal Bureau of Investigation he apparently played crooked politics for crooked Hillary and company.  Worse for America and its honest populations,  many, perhaps countless other high-ups in the Comey FBI also became helpful political subordinates as if our USA had become a  POLICE STATE scene and action to corrupt the 2016 Presidential election to secure the crooked election for crooked Hillary.)

President Trump has allowed a truthful document exposing some of the political treachery plotted by these  FBI Democrats to be opened to public view today, February 2, 2018.  Yesterday, Crooked Comey tweeted the following for public review as published in PowerLine by Scott Johnson:

DEEP THOUGHTS BY JAMES COMEY

“Among those who are preparing for the release of the Nunes memo tomorrow is former FBI Director James Comey (via Twitter below). Comey pretends to a sort of Olympian detachment, as though his conduct in office is not in issue. He certainly conceives of himself as an Olympian figure, perhaps sprung like Athena from Zeus’s brow. By my lights he is the least self-aware man in the United States. Move over, Jack Handey.

All should appreciate the FBI speaking up. I wish more of our leaders would. But take heart: American history shows that, in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field, so long as good people stand up. Not a lot of schools or streets named for Joe McCarthy.”

THE CLINTON CORRUPTIONS REVISITED BY FOX

Fox Exposes the Clintons in the Scandalous Series

by Peter Barry Chowka  at American Thinker:

The excellent 7-part Fox News documentary series Scandalous, covering the scandals of the Clintons through the 42nd president’s impeachment trial in 1999, continues tonight with the premiere of part 2, “A Woman Called Paula.” The hour-long program airs at 8 P.M. E.T./P.T. At 7 P.M., part 1, “Up Crooked Creek” about the Whitewater scandal, which originally aired last Sunday, will be reprised.

Fox hopes that Scandalous will be an ongoing series devoted to various political scandals in American history. The first 7 parts, devoted to the Clintons, total 280 minutes of content and go a long way towards helping to correct the largely sanitized and whitewashed record of Bill Clinton’s scandal-ridden career and presidency. Since he left office on January 20, 2001, the mainstream media, to my knowledge, has never attempted any serious appraisals of the underside of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s eight years in the White House and their earlier careers in Arkansas. The only exception was the PBS American Experience 2-part, 4-hour presidents’ series episode about Clinton which aired most recently in 2012. It covered Bill and Hillary’s entire career with only a minor focus on the scandals. Like most MSM appraisals of the Clintons, it reinforced the gauzy, airbrushed history of the 1990s, which witnessed the pumped up Internet dot com surge that helped to propel the temporary economic boomlet before the bubble started to burst in 2000, Bill Clinton’s last full year in office.

The universally positive mainstream media appraisals of Bill Clinton’s tenure as president — his 1999 impeachment trial notwithstanding — helped him to achieve a 66% approval rating when he left office in 2001 and strong approval ratings in subsequent years (until recently) as an ex-president.

Scandalous is off to a good start. Part 1 aired twice last Sunday and earned very strong ratings, with the show beating its competition on CNN and MSNBC in the Nielsen ratings by a wide margin in both total viewers (40+% more viewers than CNN and MSNBC combined in the 8 P.M. hour) and the age 25-54 demographic. CNN has also had good ratings luck with its documentaries in recent years, including multi-part series devoted to the decades of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. In my opinion, Fox News’ efforts with Scandalous represent a more serious and balanced appraisal of its subject than CNN’s hagiographic and one-sided take on recent decades, especially their excesses. (In reviewing CNN’s “The Nineties,” Salon — usually a friend of CNN — opined that the series was “empty nostalgia for a decade we should let die.”)

Part 2 of Scandalous, “A Woman Called Paula,” focuses on the Paula Jones affair, which was investigated by the Special Prosecutor appointed to look into the Clintons’ involvement in the corrupt Whitewater, Arkansas land deal while Bill Clinton was the governor of Arkansas. According to an article about the episode at Fox News’ Web site, “A Woman Called Paula”

follows Jones’ sexual harassment lawsuit against former President Bill Clinton and the high-stakes political drama that ensued.

Jones alleged that then-Arkansas Gov. Clinton propositioned her and exposed himself at a conference in Little Rock in 1991. He denied the allegation.

“She was a woman that really just wanted to have her good name cleared. All she wanted was an apology,” said Joseph Cammarata, who represented Jones.

When that didn’t happen, they filed a lawsuit, eventually reaching a $850,000 settlement with Clinton in 1999.

Although its critics on the left insist that Fox News, which they often refer to as “Faux News,” is anything but “fair and balanced” (its original motto), recent studies have concluded that its news coverage is in fact the most objective of the mainstream cable/satellite and broadcast media. Harvard University’s Shorenstein Center, for example, in its analysis of media reporting on  President Trump’s first 100 days, found that the broadcast networks and cable television news channels’ coverage of Trump was 90+% negative. The sole exception was Fox News, whose reporting on President Trump was slightly more negative than positive (52 to 48%) and was therefore the closest of all media studied to being balanced.

Part 1 of Scandalous represented a serious effort to reconstruct past events, using archival video clips interspersed with new interviews with many of the principals in the story, some of them speaking on camera and on the record for the first time. Hopefully, the strong ratings so far for the series, like CNN’s success with its multi-part documentaries, will breathe new life into television documentaries which in the past were a mainstay of the broadcast networks but have all but disappeared in recent years, except for PBS.

DACA Brats Attack Charles Schumer

DACA kids at it again with targeted mobbing of Schumer

by Monica Showalter   at American Thinker:

“The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients, so touted on the left as 800,000 valedictorians whose only wish is to love and serve America, are at it again, this time thuggishly mobbing Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer for his refusal to shut down the entire U.S. government for their sake.

Shouting “we won’t let him sleep,” these charmers marched onto the personal home of the Democratic senator in Brooklyn, in a scene reminiscent of the early Obama years, when SEIU mobs targeted bank officials at their homes and terrorized their children.

It follows similar DACA mobbings to shut down Disneyland and target other congressional representatives, including their surprise scream-fest against House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, a DACA champion.

The mob attacks show us something creepy about the DACA kids: their outrageous entitlement mentality.  And with each successive mob action, we see even more lawless acts from these lawbreakers, with increasing frequency.

It’s Alinskyite stuff, “picking a target, personalizing it,” which derives from communist tactics.  And don’t think this isn’t exactly what these DACA activists have in mind.  At a standoff rally in Murietta. Calif., a few years ago, a tattooed Salvadoran leader counter-protesting the citizens’ protests against illegal alien-dumping in the city in 2014 told me that yes, he had been a communist guerrilla in El Salvador in the 1980s, and yes, he was up here to advocate for amnesty for illegals because it was his way of getting back at Uncle Sam for all the imperialism out there.  Shipping immigrants who would protest, burn tires, and engage in other mobbery is a punishment to America, he explained.

Here is a photo from that rally of Mexican flag-waving illegals chanting “citi-zen-ship, citi-zen-ship,” meaning American citizenship, even as they wave the flags of other nations

The problem here is that with each screaming act, the DACA kids show Americans just how unworthy they are of U.S. residency and how unfit for citizenship.  Normal Americans write letters and vote if they want change, sometimes holding peaceful demonstrations.  DACA kids seem to be out for blood, making outrageous demands, with ever creepier personalized tactics that wouldn’t be legal from foreign nationals in any other country.  Their extremism is starting to get a grip on the Democrats, who already are in their tree.  They’re the easiest target in a long-term plan to take absolute power.

The correct response from DACA recipients to the America that gave them such chances and benefits is gratitude.  That would be the response if DACA recipients were the people the left says they are.  Issuing demands and insisting that the entire federal government be shut down if they don’t get it, as if we actually owe them something, is something else entirely.

It’s time to start making an example of a few of them, to put a stop to this increasingly creepy revolutionary movement that treats citizenship as an entitlement über alles and whose lawless minions claim, as Hugo Chávez once did, to be using lawful democratic tactics.

Fascism and Our Minnesota’s Governor, Mark Dayton

Mark Dayton’s Political Seeding of Leftist Fascism in America

(or, why We freedom loving democrats so LOVE OUR DONALD J. TRUMP!)

MINNESOTA JUDICIAL DISTRICT REPUBLICAN COMMITTEES

 Fellow Republican Activist, 

President Trump campaigned on restoring Originalism to our Federal Judiciary and appointed Neil Gorsuch to begin this restoration.  Now we are awaiting the US Senate’s approval of his nominations to the Federal Appellate Courts, all of whom are strong Originalists. 

But we have a more serious problem in Minnesota.  75% of all Minnesota judges were appointed by Gov. Dayton and they are all Liberals!  Justice Antonin Scalia famously said that there are two kinds of judges: Originalists who interpret the Constitution as the Framers intended and the others, who just “make stuff up!” 

Minnesota’s liberal judges are in the second category! 

But we in Minnesota have a tool to correct this problem that our national leaders do not have. 

We elect our judges in Minnesota! 

The Minnesota Constitutional Convention was meeting in February of 1857 when the US Supreme Court handed down the Dred Scott Decision, which returned a freed slave (Scott) to his slave owner and overturned the Missouri Compromise.  The North was incensed and a movement began to enact judicial elections in the States, eventually resulting in 39 states, including Minnesota, putting provisions for judicial elections in their constitutions. 

We Minnesota Republicans, who support Originalism in our Platform, have the opportunity to replace Dayton’s liberal judges, who are in the habit of making things up. 

Our Republican Party Constitution provides for judicial district Republican Committees and a process for endorsing and supporting district court, Appeals Court and Supreme Court candidates.  Please get active in these committees, so we can elect Originalist judges! 

We also need your help with two Legislative issues that will be coming up this year.  Both of these ideas are supported by our Minnesota Republican Platform. 

One Bill calls for a repeal of the “Incumbent” Label after the name of incumbent judges on our Minnesota ballots.  No other state has this.  It is undemocratic and unfair because it gives the incumbent about 25% advantage over his challenger. 

The other Bill addresses a lack of accountability for judges. Judges can do just about anything they want to do and there is very little that can be done to stop them. 

These two concerns are addressed by State Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen in the YouTube Video below.  Please watch it (It’s only 10 minutes).

The Importance of Judicial Issues!
https://youtu.be/LZC3hvusZzw


Please contact or meet with your local legislators and ask them to support the two judicial reform bills that are mentioned in the video. These bills will be introduced during the 2018 Legislative session. 

And please get active in the process of finding, endorsing and electing Originalist judges at every level in Minnesota!
