Democrats being Democrats

There they go again

Proposing useless laws that will do squat to deter or reduce crime. Of course those are not their aims are they?

Democrats are firm believers in never letting a good crisis go to waste. It’s why they started talking about blocking gun sales to people on the no-fly list after Orlando, despite the shooter not being on the no-fly list, and universal background checks after Sandy Hook, despite that killer stealing his guns. In addition to the disaster that is the current ban on bump-fire stocks bill, House Democrats have pulled some shenanigans of their own.

They think the time is right to ban online ammo sales, standard capacity magazines, and to require dealers to report anyone who buys two or more guns during the same five-day period. In other words, the standard anti-gun wishlist.

House Democrats have introduced a number of new gun control measures in the wake of a deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Among the proposals are HR.3962 to ban online ammunition sales, H.R. 4025 requiring gun dealers to report the sale of two or more rifles to the same person in a five-day period, and HR. 4052, which would ban magazines able to hold greater than 10 rounds.

“Several of my colleagues and I have introduced commonsense legislation that, if enacted, would reduce gun violence and the tragic impact it has on our communities,” said U.S. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, the New Jersey Democrat sponsoring the Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act.

Coleman’s proposal is much like a state law approved last year by voters in California in the respect that it would require federally licensed ammo dealers to directly confirm the identity of those buying ammo over the Internet by verifying a photo I.D. in-person. Also, the measure would require the vendor to report any individual sales of more than 1,000 rounds in a five-day period to the U.S. Attorney General. Garnering 29 co-sponsors, all Democrat, the measure has been referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.

Unemployment Claims Fall To Lowest Level In 43 Years, Despite Hurricanes – Washington Examiner

The total number of laid-off workers receiving unemployment benefits fell to 1.89 million at the end of September, the Department of Labor reported Thursday, the lowest such mark in nearly 44 years.

And new claims for unemployment benefits dropped 15,000 to 243,000 in the first full week of October, according to the agency, as the job market bounces back from hurricane damage even faster than forecasters expected.

Low new jobless claims are a good sign. They indicate that layoffs are rare, and accordingly that job creation is strong.

Unemployment benefits are available for up to 26 weeks in most states. Fewer people are now receiving benefits of all duration than at any time since December of 1973, when the total workforce was much smaller. That is a reflection of the strength of the jobs market, and the availability of new positions for laid-off workers…

FBI Forced To Admit It Has 30 Pages Of Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting Documents – PJ Media

The FBI has been forced to admit that it has 30 documents pertaining to that June 2016 meeting between Bill Clinton and former attorney general Loretta Lynch on the tarmac in Phoenix, after originally claiming to have no such documents.

That seems like a lot of docs for a chance, innocuous meeting about grandkids and golf, doesn’t it?

The FBI admitted to having the Clinton-Lynch tarmac docs only after conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch caught the bureau hiding them in another lawsuit. The FBI is asking for six weeks to produce the documents.

The new docs are being sent to Judicial Watch in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit…

Iran Deal Supporters Are Willing To Sell Out The U.S. To Jihadists – Ben Weingarten

Among the talking points bouncing around the Iran Deal’s devoted echo chamber in the wake of President Trump’s decertification decision is one of proponents’ most honest and simultaneously sordid admissions: The JCPOA means big business for the West. As long as the money is good, let us all pretend we are not subsidizing the world’s leading state sponsor of jihad and protect the pact at all costs.

This position has been echoed implicitly by European officials, who have feverishly lobbied the U.S. against unwinding the Obama administration’s non-treaty in recent weeks.

EU Ambassador to the U.S. David O’Sullivan asserts that if America nixes the JCPOA, “the European Union will act to protect the legitimate interests of our companies.”

“People in Brussels,” O’Sullivan says, “are looking at whether blocking statutes need to be upgraded or updated,” as a means of subverting prospective re-imposed or new U.S. sanctions…

Las Vegas Security Guard Disappears Before TV Interviews – Daily Caller

The security guard shot by Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock has disappeared before five scheduled television appearances as police continue searching for the motives behind the attack.

Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos, who has not yet spoken to anyone from the press, was slated to explain his side of the shooting and what exactly he saw in a series of interviews Thursday, but vanished before reporters could ask questions, Fox News reported.

“We were in a room and we came out and he was gone,” Campos’s union president told reporters, according to an ABC reporter. Fox News host Sean Hannity also said that Campos “cancelled” his appearance on Hannity’s show.

Not much is known about Campos, as only a few pictures of the security guard exist and he reportedly has no online footprint.

Microsoft Chief: North Korea Stole Cyber Tools From NSA, Carried Out WannaCry Ransomware Attack – RT

The head of Microsoft accused North Korea of carrying out the WannaCry cyberattack which crippled 200,000 computers in 150 countries earlier in 2017. Pyongyang used “cyber tools or weapons stolen from the NSA,” the company’s president believes.

Microsoft President Brad Smith told ITV that he believed “with great confidence” that North Korea was behind the worldwide WannaCry cyberattack.

“I think at this point that all observers in the know have concluded that WannaCry was caused by North Korea using cyber tools or weapons that were stolen from the National Security Agency in the United States,” Smith said.

19 GOP Congressmen Call For Mueller Hearings – Daily Caller

Leftist Elementary School Bans Halloween Costumes, Institutes ‘Hat Day’ In Name Of Inclusivity – Washington Times

A Wisconsin elementary school is banning children from wearing Halloween costumes during their annual fall parade on Oct. 31, instead instituting “Hat Day” so that all children of different religious and economic backgrounds can participate.

Officials at Hillcrest Elementary School in Waukesha took references to Halloween out of its annual Fall Festival years ago, but that apparently didn’t go far enough this year, a local NBC affiliate reported. Now students are being told they can’t participate in the tradition of wearing their Halloween costumes to the event, because some children were left out.

“We want to be inclusive of all families including those families who don’t celebrate Halloween or find purchasing a costume a hardship,” the school said in a newsletter to parents last week, NBC reported. “Also, there have been behavior and time management concerns related changing into and out of costumes.”

Instead, the school will celebrate “Hat Day” on Halloween, where students are encouraged to wear a “school appropriate hat” and bring a $2 donation for hurricane relief…

President Donald Trump announced Friday that he won’t certify that Iran is complying with the 2015 nuclear agreement, detailing a lengthy list of complaints and vowing to cancel the deal himself if Congress and U.S. allies don’t act to address his concerns about the accord.

Mr. Trump reiterated his opposition to the agreement reached among international powers, declaring his decision after a lengthy denunciation of what he called a “rogue regime” run by radicals.

“Iran is under the control of a fanatical regime,” Mr. Trump said in a speech at the White House, adding it has “spread death, destruction and chaos all around the globe.”

Detailing grievances against Iran going back to 1979, the year of the country’s Islamic revolution, Mr. Trump broadly condemned the country’s rulers.

‘Rot In Hell’: South Carolina Airmen Accused Of Vandalizing Church With Satanic Graffiti – WIS

The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office arrested a group of Airmen from Shaw Air Force Base on charges that they spray-painted Satanic graffiti on a rural church. According to sheriff’s office, the group members have been identified as Kayla Marie Eilerman, Clayre Marie Savage, Daveion Raaheim Green and Brandon Munoz.

The investigation began on Sept. 29 when a member of the congregation at Salem Black River Church in Mayesville stopped by to check on the church. When they arrived, they found the graffiti on three buildings and a door had been kicked in. However, it appears none of the suspects gained entry. The damage to the church is estimated at $3,000.

Sumter County investigators quickly began to develop leads in the case after photos of the group were released to the media.

Trump To Cease Using Taxpayer Dollars To Pay Illegal Obamacare Subsidies – Daily Caller

The Trump administration announced Thursday night that it will cease making payments to a subsidy that helps low to moderate income individuals purchase Obamacare health insurance plans.

The U.S. government cannot lawfully continue making the cost-sharing reduction payments (CSRs) that help prop up the Affordable Care Act, the White House announced in a statement. President Donald Trump’s decision to nix CSRs comes after several months of flirting with the idea.

“The bailout of insurance companies through these unlawful payments is yet another example of how the previous administration abused taxpayer dollars and skirted the law to prop up a broken system,” the White House said in a statement announcing the decision. “Congress needs to repeal and replace the disastrous Obamacare law and provide real relief to the American people.”

U.S. Withdraws From UNESCO, Saying It’s Biased Against Israel – Bloomberg

The Trump administration withdrew the U.S. from the United Nations cultural organization, saying it’s biased against Israel and citing its decision to admit the Palestinian territories as a member state.

The decision to quit the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, which the U.S. co-founded in 1945, “was not taken lightly,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement Thursday. She cited the need for “fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO.”

The U.S. hasn’t been paying dues to UNESCO since 2011, when President Barack Obama’s administration stopped providing about $72 million a year after the Paris-based organization accepted Palestine as a full member.

The arrears total almost $543 million, according to UNESCO. U.S. laws bar funding for any UN agency that gives Palestinians the status of a nation, and the U.S. lost its voting privilege in the organization in 2013…

9 Republicans Co-Sponsoring More Gun Control For Law-Abiding Americans – Breitbart

Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) introduced gun control aimed at law-abiding Americans on Tuesday. His bill has nine Republican co-sponsors, which means nine Republicans are willing to punish every law-abiding American for the behavior of one criminal in Las Vegas.

And they are doing all this to ban bump stocks, a product the ATF evaluated and approved in 2010.

The ATF approved the stocks because they are accessories for semiautomatics rather than conversion devices that turn semiautomatics into fully automatic weapons. Curbelo’s bill gets around the ATF’s approval by explicitly banning certain accessories for AR-15s, even if those accessories “[do] not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machine gun.”

And like the Democrat bill – put forward by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) – Curbelo’s bill is already broader than bump stocks alone. In other words, it is a ban that will keep on giving for the Democrats and other gun control proponents.

Here are the nine Republicans who are co-sponsoring Curbelo’s bill…

Pressure From Trump Leads To Pakistan Government Securing Release Of American Family Held Hostage By Terrorists – Washington Free Beacon

The government of Pakistan, under pressure from President Trump to do more against Islamic terrorism, secured the release of an American mother and her family after five years captivity at the hands of Islamic terrorists.

Caitlan Coleman, her Canadian husband, and three children, including a very young child, were freed from control of the al-Qaeda-linked Haqqani Network terrorist group Wednesday night and were in Pakistani government custody awaiting transfer to American officials.

The years’ long hostage case was resolved after the Islamabad government notified the U.S. government several days ago it had located the family and was close to securing their release.

“We’re tremendously grateful to the government of Pakistan for securing the release of Caitlan Coleman and her family,” said a senior official. “The relationship with Pakistan has had its challenges but this is exactly the kind of action that will put the relationship on the right track.

Gun Review Time! Springfield Armory XDM Compact in 9mm

I have not done a gun review or late because, well, I have not bought a new firearm recently. But, I decided to get a pistol I have wanted for a while now, and decided to do something I have never done before, that is buy a gun online. I have always been a person who has to handle something, or see it “in person” before I buy it online. But I was familiar with the XDM so, when I saw a great price at Buds Gun Shop, I went for it.

I used Bud’s law a way system, just because I have always enjoyed lay a way, it is just a thing with me. Anyway, Buds shipped my firearm to a local FFL dealer, and I went, did the background check, and bought some ammo, including some personal defense rounds, these to be specific,

wincpics9mmpdb1

I also got some rounds for the range of course.

At home, I found the gun to be, like my Springfield XD Mod 2 subcompact to be stiff, yes, that includes the magazines as well, it come with a 13-round, and a 19-round with a grip extension. But a quick disassembly and light cleaning and oiling, with CLP and the firearm loosened up very well. It is also super easy to disassemble.  As easy as my Sig. Lock the slide back, flip up the takedown lever and release the slide and there you go.

At the range, Shoot Smart, I found the Springfield a blast to shoot. My first shot was a dead center bullseye. Of course after that, I got cocky and had to slow myself down. But in all, I found the trigger excellent, not quite as good as My Ruger SR9c’s trigger, but excellent to me. The sights, fiber optic, were pretty much spot on, and I had a very easy time being accurate, and getting super tight groups when I slowed down just a hair.

Overall, I love this pistol

Irrelevant late-night host Seth Meyers illustrates Leftist bigotry

Seth Meyers, who is as funny as a screen door in a sub-marine, apparently hates you if you voted for Trump. Chalk this up as another example of Leftist “tolerance”

If you are an American who supports President Donald Trump, late night comedian Seth Meyers has a special message for you.

The NBC late-night host echoed rapper Eminem‘s anti-Trump freestyle rant with one of his own, calling on viewers to “get off the fence” and choose whether they support Trump or his show.

“And if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this. F*** you!” the famous Detroit rapper told any of his fans who still support the president, as he gave the camera a middle finger.

Meyers found that inspiring.

“Do you support him or do you support this show that constantly mocks and denigrates everything about him?” he asked “Late Night” viewers.

“My name is Seth and I’m here to say: If you like Trump, then go away,” he said in a mock rap before putting up his middle finger.

See Seth Meyers is better than you if you voted for Trump. Hey that is his show, his business, and for one, I am always heartened when Leftist douchebags speak “truth to power”. It exposes them for the shallow, narrow-minded, knuckle dragging bigots they really are!

And, since we referenced Eminem, let a real hero set that little no talent straight

PARONTO EMINEM BATTLE OF WORDS: KRIS PARONTO’S REPLY

Saw some posts this morning about the candy rapper m&m rapping his opinion … we’ll it swayed me to disrespect the flag 🇺🇸 and follow the opinion of the ex 49’er QB and kneel during the pledge of allegiance disrespecting all who served ……….wait, no it didn’t 😏😏.

If I want advice on how to commit domestic abuse, live in excess, disrespect the masses as well as lessons on ungratefulness I’ll listen to m&m and the NFL players. Until then I’ll wear my shirt with pride throughout my travels and continue to stand for the flag and pledge of allegiance for this great nation.

I’ll be damned if I let anyone including adolescent athletes and pop culture crybabies turn this symbol 🇺🇸 of freedom and courage ,who many of my teammates, families and friends sacrificed for , into a symbol of oppression and bigotry. The only bigots & racists I have seen throughout this are from the “kneelers” and their supporters. For hell’s sake I even saw a post stating that those that support the 🇺🇸 are the ones who burn crosses 🤦🏻‍♂️… really??!!

You have to be a special kind of stupid for that view, guess my Latino cross burning crew will need to get our torches ready for tonight🙄🙄. Like me or not for saying this , I could give a shit, unfollow me , I won’t lose a wink of sleep . I’ll continue standing for this great country , for freedom, for honor, for courage, and sacrifice and the symbol 🇺🇸 this represents. So I’m crossing your line in the sand killer @eminem🙄😏

So, I guess all there is left to say is keep those jaws flapping leftists!

The intellectual depth of a dried-up mud puddle

Cocks not Glocks?

On a crisp October Tuesday in Madison, Wisconsin, campus was like any other day. Undergrads shuffled off to morning classes, grad students slaved away over coffee, and a student protest group readied art supplies and dildos for a genitalia-themed protest against a conservative speaker on campus.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison chapter of Young Americans for Freedom invited journalist Katie Pavlich of Townhall.com to give a lecture on the Second Amendment and self-defense. On the heels of a heated debate over campus carry in Wisconsin at the end of last year, Pavlich’s planned talk quickly inspired vocal objections and an organized protest.

How truly juvenile, the Left summed up in the actions of a few miscreants. rather than debating, they pull publicity stunts
