We Can’t Put Democrat Judges in Charge of Enforcing Red Flag Laws

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Oh, noes, not Stacey!!!! – Because I know all you readers have been sitting around fretting, wondering when, oh, when will the stellar, awesome, brilliant, and indeed heroic Stacey Abrams jump into this race for the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination, I am oh, so sad to report the following news: She ain’t running.

Yesterday, the insufferable loooooooooser from Georgia, in whom Democrat Party leaders invested gobs of time, energy and money, trying desperately to build her into a national thing, announced that, after long contemplation of whether or not she wanted to get into another race she would be bound to lose, she did what fellow looooooooooser Irish Bob O’Rourke didn’t have the sense to do and decided to go do something else she might actually be good at doing. (Yeah, I know that was a run-on sentence, but I sure had fun writing it.)

Instead, Ms. Abrams has decided to apply her boundless energy for whining to the endeavor she loves most: Encouraging voter fraud. Oh, yeah, I know she actually said that she’s going to lead some organization whose goal is to fight “voter suppression,” but that’s just Democrat code for making sure all the dead and illegal aliens get to vote, too.

“My job is to be the voice to those who do not believe they are heard,” Abrams told a chanting audience. Dead people do have a hard time being heard, that’s for sure.

Hey, maybe she can get Irish Bob to help her run this enterprise, but not until after he has dropped out of the presidential race, come back to Texas and lost another race for the senate against John Cornyn. Which is pretty much an inevitability at this point, now that the editorial board at the Houston Chronicle, one of his major cheerleading squads during his failed attempt to unseat Ted Cruz, has set the stage for that to happen.

These Democrats are so darn transparent once you understand how they really think.

Ok, so Chris Cuomo can’t have guns, then? – Quote yesterday from President Donald Trump: “There’s nobody more pro-Second Amendment than Donald Trump, but I don’t want guns in the hands of a lunatic or manic.”

That gets me to this proposal running around for congress to pass a “red flag law” in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. All you need to know about how a red flag law would work is this sub-head from an August 6 article published about them in the Democrat Party propaganda sheet New York Times:

“Hoping to prevent more mass shootings, some states have tried empowering courts to take guns away from potentially dangerous people.”

The emphasis added there is mine, because that’s the salient point here that tells anyone whose political views are to the right of Ho Chi Minh that we simply cannot and must not have a national red flag law in the United States of America in the post- Barack Obama world. Anyone who has been paying even a modicum of attention to what has been taking place in our courts over the last 3 years knows that Obama packed the federal judiciary with hundreds of Manchurian Candidate judges who are willing to issue any decision, no matter how contrary it might be to the constitution, that will advance the leftist cause in our country.

We have had so many examples of Obama judges issuing bald-faced fraudulent decisions and getting smacked down by the Supreme Court in recent years that they are almost not even newsworthy anymore, which was exactly the plan to begin with. Leaving the determination of which citizens might be a danger to others should they obtain a firearm up to these particular judges is simply a recipe for willy-nilly gun confiscation anytime some leftwing activist group wants them confiscated. We’d ultimately end up in a situation in which you could have your guns taken away if you get suspended on Facebook or post a Tweet that some pimple-faced slob out in Silicon Valley working as a Twitter monitor finds objectionable.

Some of you might still, after all this time and all of these anti-Constitutional judicial decisions think I’m being ridiculous, and that’s fine. But take a look at the campaign the Democrats and their media toadies have been pushing since those latest mass shootings, which is to convince the American public not only that the President of the United States is a “white supremacist” – and thus, a danger to society – but anyone who supports him is also a “white supremacist.”

This is not me being an alarmist – this is all utterly transparent and predictable.

The other thing to remember is that, sooner or later, the Democrats are going to elect another president of their own, and that someone will look and sound a lot like one of those nutcases you have seen on your TV screen for the last six months. Do you really want to put a federal law on the books that would allow one of those lunatics and the fellow lunatics they would appoint to have discretion over who should and should not be able to arm and defend themselves in this society?

Sorry, no. Hard, hard pass.

That is all.

Beto O’Rourke Tries Cussing His Way to the Presidency

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It didn’t work for Kirsten Gillibrand, Irish Bob, and it won’t work for you. – El Paso native Robert Francis O’Rourke has over the last two days put on the most craven, disgusting display of raw political grasping I think I’ve ever seen.

Democrats always politicize tragedy – that’s just become a sad given in today’s American society. This has just been a fact of our lives since the Clinton Administration, and it’s what Rahm Emanuel was talking about when he famously declared that Democrats should “never let a good crisis go to waste.”

Irish Bob, who has been floundering around for months in a failed presidential campaign that can’t get above the 3% polling level, obviously decided within a few hours of Saturday’s atrocity in his home city that this was his chance to get himself back in the spotlight, perhaps his last chance. But, knowing that every one of his 6,000 or so rivals for the nomination would also be working their butts off to use the shootings to grab attention for themselves, Irish Bob obviously made the conscious decision to be as outrageous as humanly possible in order to stand out from the craven crowd.

How best to do that? Fall back on the two things in his entire life that he is apparently really good at: Cussing and outrageous lying. The lying, of course, is just standard issue part of any Democrat campaign, but the cussing he’s been doing – holy cow. And not just a few cusswords here and there, but loading up almost every statement with bunches of cusswords that my dear Mom used to wash my mouth out with soap for saying. Here are just a couple of quotes from the goofy opportunist over the last couple of days. First, the cussing.:

And here’s the bald-faced lying:

“He is saying that some people are inherently defective or dangerous – reminiscent of something you might hear in the Third Reich, not something that you expect in the United States of America – based on their religion, based on their sexual orientation, based on their immigration status, based on the countries that they come from. Calling those in Africa shithole nations and saying that he’d like to have more immigration from Nordic countries, the whitest place on planet Earth today. Again, let’s be very clear about what is causing this and who the president is.”

You may remember that, when she first began thinking about running for the presidency back in late 2017, Kirsten Gillibrand went on a cussing rampage because her advisors told her it would get her gobs of press attention. And it did get her attention. What it didn’t do was gain her any favor at all with voters, and there she sits all these months later, still mired at 0% in pretty much every poll.

It won’t work for Irish Bob, either, because everyone already knows what a craven doofus he is and it will be universally be seen as the sad political tactic from a failing candidate that it is.

The same goes for the lying. The only people who are going to believe all that stuff are Democrats who already believe all that stuff, despite the public record to the contrary.

The only people Donald Trump has called “defective or dangerous” are members of drug gangs like MS-13 and domestic terrorist groups like Antifa. The claim that the President has referred to all immigrants or all Hispanics or African Americans in negative terms is a bald-faced lie invented by Democrats like O’Rourke and their toadies in the fake news media. He has borne this out not just in words but in actions as well, as his administration has worked to significantly increase legal immigration while at the same time attempting to stop illegal immigrants from flooding the southern border.

Then there’s the outrageous lie that he has ever supported or praised real “white nationalists,” all of whom in this country would fit into a phone booth if phone booths still existed. He has in fact, on dozens of very public occasions, slammed and disavowed them, as he did yet again in yesterday’s speech.

Donald Trump is an equal-opportunity slammer who counter-punches against those who attack him first. He has spent immensely more time going after white people like Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer and Fauxcahontas and Jabba The Nadler and Pencil Neck Schiff than he has people of color.

Democrat liars and their media toadies want to classify his attacks on despicable hacks like Elijah Cummings – who has become fabulously wealthy while serving in congress on a maximum salary of $174,000 a year while the people in his district continue to suffer in the most squalid conditions in America – and loud-mouthed radicals like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of her anti-Semitic crew as “racism” because they know they must somehow distract the public away from learning the truth about those folks. Because the truth about them is so ugly that it would turn voters away from their Party, especially if the public should ever learn that they are now the rule among Democrats, not the exception.

Finally, President Trump has never “incited violence…in this country” as Irish Bob claims in that first quote. That is explicitly true about the two mass shootings over the weekend. As we have discovered over the last two days, the Dayton shooter was a registered Democrat who was a big fan of Elizabeth Warren. The El Paso shooter is also a self-professed Democrat whose “manifesto” lays out his support for all manner of radical leftwing causes, and explicitly states he is NOT a Trump fan.

But, never wanting to let a good crisis go to waste, every Democrat and hack fake reporter in the nation has jumped on the narrative that it’s all Trump’s fault. The only aspect of any of this that is – in Irish Bob’s words – reminiscent of something “you might hear in the Third Reich” is the Democrat/media effort to push the Big Lie.

No one has been more craven and opportunistic about doing that than El Paso’s own Irish Bob O’Rourke.

Disgusting.

That is all.

The Mass Shootings Will Continue Because We Refuse to Deal With the Real Cause

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is the cancer the political left represents in our country. – After another tragic mass shooting took place in El Paso early Saturday afternoon, Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit reports that leftwing activists discovered the shooter had a profile page on “MyLife.com” on which he listed himself as a “registered Democrat.” Within an hour after the shooting had made the news, these activists had gone into his page and changed pretty much every element of his profile, including his party affiliation to “Republican.”

The new profile also now says he was a disciple of “Qanon,” “INCEL” and a conspiracy theorist, which of course conveniently matches him right up with the profile we learned this week that the FBI is now trying to have defined as a potential domestic terrorist. The same activists for some reason initially changed his ethnicity from “Caucasian” to “African American,” and then later went back in one more time to correct that idiotic error.

Folks, this kind of craven activity is a sickness, every bit the mental illness that the shooter was obviously suffering from. Luckily, these activists were caught in the act, but you can still be sure that talking heads on CNN and MSNBC will use the fraudulent profile page they created to claim the shooter was a Republican who was motivated to commit his heinous act by President Trump. Because those talking heads are also mentally deranged people who will do and say anything for political gain.

The politicians the activists support are, if anything, even worse. Within minutes of the shootings going public, pretty much every candidate for the Democrat presidential nomination had issued near-identical tweets ignoring the shooter’s obvious mental illness and claiming gun control was the only “solution” to the issue of mass shoootings. The most craven opportunist among them was failed South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who issued this despicable tweet:

But the sickness isn’t limited to the presidential candidates, oh, no. At a joint press conference held late in the afternoon, El Paso congresswoman Veronica Escobar made faces and shook her head repeatedly behind Governor Gregg Abbott’s back as he pointed to the real problem: Mental illness and the de-institutionalization of the dangerously mentally ill that took place during the 1960s and 1970s. When a member of the press saw Escobar’s antics and directed a question to her, she offered a non-answer in which she pontificated about guns and then promised that she and her Democrat colleagues would issue a “strong statement” later in the evening.

Democrats are now incapable of even presenting a united front in the face of mass tragedy, because their narrative does not allow them to do so. That’s a sickness. That is a mental illness.

This mental illness of protecting the narrative now even extends to local law enforcement. Because the El Paso shooter is a white male who meekly surrendered and who conveniently has his own “manifesto” that was somehow immediately released to the press, his identity was revealed to the public within moments of the shootings.

Late last night, another gunman used a high-power rifle to shoot up a bar in Dayton, Ohio. He apparently doesn’t have a ready-made “manifesto” or an easily-faked “MyLife” page, and probably also isn’t a white male since, as of this writing fully 8 hours after he committed his atrocity, local law enforcement officials are completely mum on any details of his identity.

When the facts don’t fit the narrative, it takes a little more time to get the story and talking points together, right? Right.

This is a sickness. It is a mental illness brought to us by the radical political left. And it, more than any other factor, is why our society is continuing to progress inexorably down the sad, tragic road to a second civil war.

The truth about this 21 year-old El Paso shooter is that, at some point during his early teens (if his “manifesto” is to be believed) he developed a sick, irrational hatred of Hispanics. On Saturday, he acted on that hatred, driving 650 miles from his upper-middle-class home in Allen, Texas to El Paso to carry out his demented mission.

The seeds of this act will not be found in politics – his “manifesto” clearly lays out his radical progressive political views, including his advocacy of pet leftist policies like universal healthcare and universal income – but in mental illness. As the days go on we will no doubt find out that he had serious issues in school, most likely was identified as a problem by his teachers and school officials, and had trouble socializing with other students. We will also almost certainly find out that local law enforcement in Allen was aware of his issues. But no one was able to take any real action to get him the proper care he really needed because of idiotic policies forced on our schools and law enforcement officials by the federal government.

In other words, it will be the same story we have seen so many times before, from places like Parkland and Columbine and Sandy Hook and on and on and on. At this point, this is all so predictable – it’s the same story over and over again.

But because of our national political sickness, we are never allowed to deal with the real problem at hand, because the real problem at hand does not fit the narrative that leftist politicians and their baggage-carriers in our fake news media prefer. That narrative mandates that guns – the inanimate objects involved – are the problem and the only problem that needs to be addressed.

So long as that narrative dominates in our society, these mass shootings will continue. It really is that simple.

That is all.
