Judges Arming Following Violence At Courthouses

Judges Arming Themselves2nd Amendment, Shooting & Firearms Blog recently posted this item on Judges Arming Themselves.

We now have judges arming themselves in the courtroom?  It is a sad state of affairs when judges arm themselves to feel safe in their own courtrooms. My question is, should not everyone else have the same option? Is the judge’s life more valuable than mine? I am not allowed into the courtroom with a pocket knife.  However, the judge packs some serious heat? I would really like to see nationwide Constitutional Carry the law of the land. It could certainly be combined with serious penalties for anyone choosing to use firearms in the wrong way, such as during the commission of a felony, committing murder, assault, etc.

It seems that all the leniency, reduced sentencing, and revolving door judicial policies are not helping to protect these Judges!

No more wrist slapping and revolving door policies for criminals using firearms during the committing of their crimes. Severe penalties exist on the books on the books for people who do.  Do judges impose them?. Hurricane Irma brings to light the true greatness of many of our citizens.  However, then we also see looters and people taking advantage of victims of such catastrophes. People have a right to protect themselves and their property from criminals, rapists, looters, and other snakes of the two-legged varieties. Rioting … burning people s cars, businesses, beating people up for wearing a Trump hat is not political free speech. People have a right to protect themselves from actions such as these.

As long as we enable and elevate criminals, denigrate and handcuff our police, and continue use the racist left-wing progressive policies of identity politics, our American civilization will continue to deteriorate and fall into further decline. It is time for Americans to stand up and take our country back.

Can We Have an Honest DACA Discussion

Some DACA Honesty … Please?

DACACan we have an intelligent discussion about DACA? The Left now blasting President Trump for his decision to phase out DACA. However, what he did is put the decision back where it RIGHTFULLY, LEGALLY and CONSTITUTIONALLY belongs … in the hands of Congress. Of course, if you hate America, the U.S. Constitution, the Rule of Law, and everything this country stands for, you would be blasting this decision … no matter who made actually made it

.

What did President Trump Say?

The President Trump’s administration announced its decision on DACA Tuesday.  They will implement an “orderly wind down” of this Obama-era executive order.  The unilateral order gave a deportation reprieve to illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. In addition, President Trump gave Congress 6 months to come up with a legislative solution to the issue. Congress, not the President, writes the laws. They don’t teach that in school anymore? It is almost as if our schools are preparing our kids for a more “authoritarian” form of government.

I often wonder were all the vocal critics and protestors when, under the Democratic controlled legislature, Obama couldn’t get this done through legislation? Remember, Obama is the one who took the unconstitutional path and imposed it unilaterally by executive order … not President Trump.

What About Being A Society built on Laws?

It has become fairly clear that neither the establishment politicians of both parties nor the media care about the rule of law. 25 States sued the previous administration in Federal Courts with Federal Judges ruling that DACA (and DAPA) were unconstitutional executive actions. Did you hear about this in the left-wing mass media? Nope? I sure didn’t. I think I heard it on Fox news though! That must be why the Left hates Fox News so much. Furthermore, it is simply more evidence of the mass  media’s  “enemy of the people” status perhaps?

President Trump is Heartless, Evil, Racist, and Cruel!

I don’t think so. First of all, I think this decision weighed heavily on his mind.  Look at what he said and think about what it really means. What is the message behind President Trumps words?
I do not favor punishing children, most of whom are now adults, for the actions of their parents. But we must also recognize that we are a nation of opportunity because we are a nation of laws.

And What of Barack Obama?

Yesterday, Obama went on the attack, saying President Trump’s ending of DACA is “cruel”. Yet, he once said he did not have the authority to do what he later did. Either Obama has a very short memory or his is being very disingenuous in his attack on President Trump. Furthermore, I remember when Obama stated this was not amnesty or immunity. Obama said it was not a path to citizenship. He stated himself this was not a permanent fix … calling it a temporary stopgap measure.

Just maybe, what President Trump is doing … is actually fixing the gap!

FLOTUS, Melanie Trump, Wears Spike Heels to Texas

FLOTUS Wears Spike Heels to View Texas Damage … Left-wing Media in a Tither!

Spike heels … are you kidding? Of course you can see from the photograph, she must have somehow found time to change from Spike Heels into sneakers on the flight down from Andrews AFB.  It is obviously hard for the left-wing media to believe that the First Lady would be capable of such a daunting task! I mean, change her shoes? What was she thinking. Left-wing pundits are obsessed with the state of her shoes while the rest of America worries about the rescue efforts and what will be needed to rebuild!

It is just another piece of evidence as to how political the media has become and how it has, in fact, become an enemy of the American People. As I have posted in the past, a Free Press is certainly a vital part of a free and democratic society. The lest-wing media simply continues to prove time and time again that it is not a Free Press. It is the propaganda wing of the Democratic Left-wingers and Progressives.

Mean While … In the Real World!

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott had high praise for President Donald Trump and the federal government for its response to Hurricane Harvey, describing it as  “A-plus.” This effort is only just beginning. It will be a long haul because this storm and its rain will continue to weak havoc for several days.

Abbot want on to say

I’ve got to tell you, I give FEMA a grade of A+, all the way from the president down,” Abbott said. “I’ve spoken to the president several times, to his Cabinet members, such as secretary of homeland security, such as the administrator of FEMA, such as Tom Price, the secretary of health and human services.

Of course, you won’t hear any of that on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABS, The Washington Post, The NY Times, or any of the left-wing’s propaganda tool … the one that, at one time, was the American Free Press!

It’s Become Time to Resist the Resist Trump Group

 Resist Left-wing TyranyI just have to ask, what kind of a responsible news organization publishes the transcripts of a Presidential conversation with other heads of state knowing that these transcripts were illegally released? This Trump Derangement Syndrome is really getting out of hand. Maybe it is time to resist the resistance!

There is no logical reason for it. Have you seen the “new” new Democratic platform? They rail against the evils of unrestrained capitalism, but their proposed solutions, with the exception of building the wall, are copied from the Trump playbook … only smaller-minded. How can President Trump be that evil, if they want to do what he is already doing, but on a more limited scale? If capitalism was the devil they portray it to be, they should want to take much more drastic action. Their actions and their rhetoric do not jive. And, they accuse President Trump of being unbalanced?

Despite our differences, we came together whenever the Country was threatened. What changed? We no longer have allegiance to the ideals that made our County great. The Left has worked so hard to ridicule, remove, denigrate, destroy and rebuke what it means to be an American.

Unhinged Resistance

The liberal-left and their media lapdogs have truly lost their minds. They have no concerns about the integrity of our government, the safety of its people, or the welfare of our Country. As long as they “resist” they think they can attack President Trump with impunity. Right or wrong … they will do it … regardless of the Constitutional, Legal, Ethical, or International consequences. It is insane!  And, it is a very real threat to the American people. Let me say that again, another way … the media has indeed become the enemy of the American people. President Trump got it right

We Now Have a Criminal Mass Media

The FBI should arrest the Editor-in-Chief of the Washington Post. Charges of treason may be a bit unreachable, but knowingly releasing classified information to the public is a crime! Even if somebody else leaked it to him. Let him sweat through a few FBI interrogations. Maybe some of this insane, and illegal, leaking of classified information will stop

Democrats totally ignore the many good things the President has already done. I think it is simply because they cannot get over the fact that he won. They somehow cannot forgive him, or themselves, for that. Furthermore, they attack his Presidency at the expense of the American people.  They ignore the fact that the world is about to go up in flames. We have highly volatile situations with Russia, Iran, and North Korea, mostly because of the Marvin Milktoast policies of the former president, Barack Obama.  Yet, they ignore all that so they can play “blame President Trump” and wage unrelenting war on the Trump Presidency. The really scary part is, they do it to the detriment and endangerment of us all.

Resist the Unhinged Resistance

That is what is truly unforgivable! Yes, this Administration has certainly had some issues and some shake-ups. Let us remember it is only his 8th month in office. I can remember a few other Administrations that had some shake-ups and problems as well. This situation in the media is very much like the Pot calling the Kettle black

In conclusion, let me just say that it may be time for President Trump’s supporters to wage a little counter-war. And, no I am not calling for violence in the streets. It is simply time for his supporters to speak up, to protest the protestors, resist the “Resist” group, and try to get a little equal time in the spotlight.

Firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions Would Be a Mistake

A Beleaguered Attorney General?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions admitted that President Trump’s criticism over his recusal from the Russia investigation was “kind of hurtful.” However, Sessions insists he will continue at his job and has no plans to resign. Jeff Sessions is not completely “in the clear” when it comes to fault in this situation.

Criticism From the Boss

President Trump has repeatedly slammed Jeff Sessions in media interviews and on Twitter. The criticism has been over the Attorney General’s decision back in March to recuse himself from the Russian Investigation. Sessions still stands by his decision to recuse himself. I am not an expert on the legalities of this situation. But, if Sessions is correct, then he did do the right thing. An Attorney General who doesn’t follow the law is very problematic as we have seen with former Attorney Generals Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch!

Some Criticism of Attorney General Jeff Sessions is Justified

However, I do agree with President Trump on his point. Jeff Session needed to address this before accepting the appointment. He could have let the President that if his involvement with then Candidate Trump’s campaign became an issue in the Russian Investigation, he would be forced to recuse himself. That would have given President Trump all the information he needed to make his best decision about appointing Sessions as Attorney General. Appointed and confirmed as Attorney General and then immediately recusing himself from the Russian Investigation was very unfair to President Trump.

What many in the media forget, is that President Trump is a plain-talk kind of man. That is why so many Americans outside California, New York City and Washington, DC voted for him. You know where you stand with President Trump. He will tell you … either on the air, on Twitter, or in person. That is simply who he is and why he was elected. The Mass Media hyperventilating over every new Tweet is beginning to get a little silly. I find it refreshing, especially after all the years of political double-speak that the left seems to love so much.

Jeff Sessions Understands the President’s Position

Jeff Sessions has publically stated that he understands President Trumps feelings on this issue.  Sessions knows that this has been a big problem for the President. “The President of the United States is a strong leader,” Sessions recently told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson while on a trip to El Salvador. “He has had a lot of criticisms and he’s steadfastly determined to get his job done, and he wants all of us to do our jobs and that’s what I intend to do.”

Sessions, in El Salvador Thursday, is working to improve cooperation with the Central American nation. As Attorney General, he is leading the charge in the fight against the MS-13 street gang. Sessions has described this gang as a top security threat to the United States.

Firing Attorney General Sessions Would be a Mistake

I do think President Trump and Attorney General Sessions need to talk this out. It would be a big mistake for President Trump to fire Jeff Sessions. Sessions is one of the few people working hard to keep the President’s campaign promises. Maybe the problem is that Jeff Sessions is more loyal to Trump’s positions than President Trump himself …

As Attorney General, Sessions has already:

  • Cracked Down on Illegal Immigration
  • Led the effort to defund Sanctuary Cities
  • Is waging war on Opioids
  • Cracking down on the gang  MI-13
  • Has opened criminal investigations into “Leaking”

Now … if Sessions would just reopen the investigation into the Clinton Campaign’s secret server, the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton’s real collusion with Russia … Uranium sales, etc., maybe President Trump would back off on his criticism!

Words Really Are Weapons If You Control The Narrative

If you control the language, you can control the story. Therefore, words are weapons. The radical left has learned this and is using that fact to destroy this country. My brother, Dan Gilbert, penned the below post. I just made a few edits. It sums this idea up very well.

Antifa

Words Are Very Powerful!

Words are very powerful, especially in their impact on the uneducated. The radical left has seized on this concept and it has freed them from accountability and rationality. They have figured out that if they can control words, they can maintain a powerful role in America despite promoting ideas that are clearly against this country’s best interests. They promote ideas that ignore the will of the vast majority of its population and violate our laws.

It is hard to understand how we have let the statist radical left claim the term liberal. But, it is one of the more effective tactics developed in modern political history that they employ to work to legitimize their radical beliefs. They are in no way liberal. The Democratic party is patently not liberal. Every one of their policies is the antithesis of liberalism.

By claiming the term, they position their enemies as not only wrong but evil. While they promote totalitarian and statist policies that degrade the last vestiges of individual liberty in the US, they rant about how their opponents are racists and bigoted.

Promoting racially segregated housing on campus they call opponents racists. While rioting to prevent others from expressing their beliefs through intimidation, they call their opponents violent. Demanding adherence to a single worldview, they call their opponent fascists. They justify assaulting harmless animals, burning buildings and cars by claiming they are defending themselves. Yet, they call themselves liberals and as such are beyond reproach.

Claiming A Title Does Not Make It So!

By claiming the liberal title they can ensure that the DNC lines up behind them. As long as you are liberals, rape, assault, burning buildings, and looting trucks on the highway is okay.

True liberalism prioritizes individual freedom from the government over the desire of the government to control our daily lives. The liberals protected freedom of speech, thought, property rights, and freedom of social practices such as freedom of worship against government intrusion. The academics that dominate the radical left have mastered doublespeak to the point that terms mean what they say they mean in order to promote a statist, totalitarian agenda. The worst examples are the clowns running around in black and face masks claiming to be the “Antifa” (anti-fascist) movement when they themselves are acting very much like fascists. Liberty requires accountability and acceptance of others. It does not explain away criminal behavior or treat people differently based on some artificial identity marker. Liberals developed the rule of law as a concept to fight against the implementation of a different set of laws based on identity or class.

We do not have to accept this. We do not have to be witnesses to the death of the American Dream. Do not allow the radical left to pervert the English language to promote their totalitarian worldview.

We need to reclaim our language and our principles, one nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

 

President Trump and People Who Live in Glass Houses

President Trump … A  flawed President?

President Trump
President Trump

Yes! President Trump is certainly flawed.  He is a human being. Human beings are flawed. However, since history has shown us that flawed individuals can do great things, I think he is in pretty good company!

Aren’t we constantly being told just how “flawed” the Founding Fathers were? In addition, we certainly know former presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama had their flaws. I am sure Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Al Franken each have their own flaws.  Furthermore, from a biblical perspective, flawed people comprise most of the really important characters!

President TrumpIf all the mass media can do is point out people’s flaws, what important function do they now fill?  Maybe they have become the enemy of the American people. A Free Press is certainly important to a healthy Democracy, but you could make a very strong case that, with a few exceptions, we no longer have a free press. In fact, it has surrendered itself to a progressive ideology that leaves no room for discussion or dissent.

President Trumps Accomplishments?

President Trump might not do well  if we judge him only on his tweeting habits. I can’t argue with that.  However, Donald Trump is doing  a good job with the economy, jobs, and foreign affairs! There is obviously still lots more to do.

People in Glass Houses Should Not Throw Stones

President Trump has a tough uphill battle. The swamp is fighting back. The alligators are circling.

Despite the lack of any evidence, Democrats won’t give up on the “Russian Collusion” charge. It seems almost suicidal on their part. The more they investigate, the more we find out about possible Obama administration criminality.   Congress subpoenaed Susan Rice, John Brennan and Samantha Power to testify about spying on Americans, unmasking names and criminal leaking classified information. The Russia investigation  may end up hurting the Democrats much more than President Trump.

Democrats will continue to resist and obstruct to the point of damaging themselves politically, while President Trump keeps pushing forward with key campaign promises. Of course, you will rarely hear mention of that in the “free press.”
