Since the FBI executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago a couple of days ago (well really, long before then), the predictable rhetoric from the Cult has been that of “WAR!” and “BATTLE” and “FIGHT” and “ENEMIES!”. Usually from soft, clammy-handed snowflakes who nothing of those terms.
Well….if you believe yourself to be “at war”. Why aren’t you doing anything about it? Are you a coward? A pussy? A cuck? You should be taking up arms against those enemies, no?
I was so waiting for the dispersed members of Meal Team 6, to shoehorn themselves into their airsoft gear, grab their Made-in-China Cult flags, come out of their Mother’s basements and start LARP-ing down Main Streets across the nation….playing pretend-patriot and warbling bumper-sticker slogans in praise of dear leader.
At the least, hilariously wild entertainment….and at most (should they find their un-dropped balls), slow-moving target practice.
For attempting to subvert the rule of law and a lawful election.
Raid is a bit of a loaded term given that Secret Service personnel assigned to MAL escorted FBI agents through the premises in a peaceful and orderly manner.
Aside from the violations of the Presidential Records Act….which <i>my</i> home would have been searched, and myself incarcerated were I to do the same….I think that there’s much much more to the warrant (which the Trump legal team could divulge at any time).
For this level of search warrant, assuredly signed off by the US Attorney General, there is undoubtedly evidence of potential crimes of a national security flavor.
But by all means….I invite the cultists to don their best airsoft gear and start LARP-ing around around in order to start ‘civil war 2.0’. I need the target practice.
The law of unintended consequences bites the short-sighted (and quite frankly absurd) right in the ass.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a new gun bill on Friday that is explicitly modeled after Texas’ unprecedented abortion law. The state is now the first to allow citizens to sue people who make or sell banned weapons, state officials said.
The bill, SB 1327, allows Californians to sue those making, selling, transporting or distributing illegal assault weapons or ghost guns for at least $10,000 in damages. Gun dealers who illegally sell firearms to those under the age of 21 could also be liable for the same damages.
I watched a bit of the House Committee hearing on HR1808 (Federal “assault Weapons” Ban). And I’m re-watching the entirety on YouTube today.
I’m almost speechless. I’ve long said that Congress, especially where it regards gun control, is fundamentally and willfully ignorant about the lawful and Constitutionally protected item that they wish to legislate against.
The stunning display of un-education by the Democrats on the Committee not only spoke to my statement above….but underlined it, bolded it and finished with an exclamation point.
Even if you support gun control, do you support such ignorance? Either they’re stupid…..or they think you’re stupid.
My favorite debacle so far:
Rep Cicilline on stabilizing braces: “When attached here, it turns this weapon into an automatic weapon. It becomes a bump stock, and so it will allow that to essentially be fired like an automatic weapon. That’s the danger.”
Cue the (((Facepalm)))……..
But wait, the genius from Rhode Island isn’t done!
“No one has said it is a bump stock, but what we are saying is it harnesses the semiautomatic fire recoil and it operates like a bump stock because subsequent shots occur in rapid succession. That’s exactly what a bump stock does.”
And another gem: “It (AR-15) was designed to kill someone wearing a military helmet. What that does to a civilian wearing nothing — is liquify organs.”
This from a PhD who used to fly helicopters for the Marines and “her research focuses on the intersection of social integration and military effectiveness, with a focus on gender and unconventional warfare.” Uh huh.
And from Eric Swalwell, D-CA: “There is never an instance where an assault weapon can be classified as a “weapon of defense.” The only way to describe these dangerous firearms are “weapons of war.”
There is no such animal as a “defensive firearm”….or an “offensive firearm”.
By a nearly four-to-one margin, Idaho Republicans at the state party’s convention in Twin Falls rejected an amendment to the party platform on Saturday that would have provided an exception for a mother who has an abortion to safe her life.
Herndon argued the exception should not be included because over the past nearly 50 years since the U.S. Supreme Court made the original Roe v. Wade ruling, exceptions made in the law eroded progress for the anti-abortion movement.Link
So……these geniuses want to criminalize an abortion where the life of the mother is at stake. An act that, because the mother may die, may also result in the death of the unborn child. Not very ‘pro-life’
It was bad enough that they wanted to force [usually young] women to carry the child of rape or incest…they’re now doubling down.
And Idaho isn’t the only state where the radical extremists are making such moves.
“Surveillance footage shows that police never tried to open a door to two classrooms at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde in the 77 minutes between the time a gunman entered the rooms and massacred 21 people and officers finally stormed in and killed him, according to a law enforcement source close to the investigation.”
Shooting unarmed black men and dogs wasn’t bad enough apparently, the Uvalde PD decided to stand outside the classroom where schoolchildren were murdered just inside.
The ‘thin blue line’ was standing along the hallway…….a line of yellow cowards.
A certain individual who I will not name, should take the honorable way out.
And it appears that the PD has hired outside counsel to fight against the release of bodycam footage. Cool.
“I was thinking the other day about, somebody had mentioned on the radio, Adolf Hitler and how he aroused the crowds. And he would get up there screaming these epithets and these people were just—they were hypnotized by him. That’s, I guess, I guess that’s the kind of leader we need today. We need somebody inspirational. We need somebody that is a doer, has been there and done it, so that it’s not a strange new world to him.” – Carl Paladino, R-NY (just endorsed by Rep. Elise Stefanik, Republican Conference Chair)
I’ve written several times over the years, about the illogical restrictions on our Constitutional and Civil Right, pushed by both major political parties; gun control being the campaign du jour of the Left.
“Universal Background Checks” are again being touted as legislation designed to curb shootings…mass or otherwise.
So, allow me to dust off a post from early 2018, that makes the same point I would makes today:
One of the proposals currently being considered, by the Right and the Left….is the notion of “Universal Background Checks” [UBC]. One of the misconceptions used in this argument, is that there is some sort of loophole in the law, often referred to by the ignorant, as a “gun show loophole”. There is nothing of the sort. People attending gun shows wishing to purchase a firearm from a licensed dealer, undergoes the same NICS process as they would a gun show. Those wishing to conduct a purchase from another private citizen selling at the show, does so without NICS, just as they would were they to conduct a transaction with their neighbor.
When we propose legislation, we require an enforcement mechanism. In other words, if you fail to abide in accordance with the law, there is a consequence. With UBCs however, there is no enforcement mechanism, because the State has no means to be apprised if a Citizen has violated the law.
For example, if UBC is statute law, and I sell my firearm to my neighbor without taking him/her to an FFL dealer…..how does the State know? If my neighbor proceeds to use said purchased firearm in the commission of a crime, and is apprehended……unless he/she confesses to the lawful transaction…..how does the State know that the law was violated.
The obvious answer is, that without a mandatory registration of ALL firearms, there is no enforcement mechanism for UBCs.
If you think there is righteous pushback on UBC…..wait until the gun control cabal tries to proffer registration…..
