Your Self-Defense Story of the Day 2.0 Never bring nunchucks to a gunfight

Via Bearing Arms

The couple, who divorced almost a decade ago, became embroiled in an argument over a hefty phone bill they share for their daughter’s cell phone. The wife says with a history of violence, she has had to take a restraining order out against her ex-husband, and she and her husband have a NO TRESPASSING sign at their home as well.

But on Tuesday night, when the couple returned home from dinner celebrating their anniversary, her ex-husband showed up in a rage and wielding nunchucks.

“If he could’ve got Dave, he would’ve definitely came after me no doubt,” the woman cried. She says her ex, Anthony “Tony” Casada was upset over their daughter’s cell phone bill.

“That escalated (to) all the texting and then it just got worse and worse,” she said.

She says Casada threatened her and her husband, Dave Gregory, the day of the shooting.

“I’m sitting here at the back patio. My wife is sitting here. My dog starts barking. I see his car pull up,” described Gregory.

“My thoughts were, ‘he’s going to try and beat me up or kill me with these nunchucks then go take it out on my wife’,” said Gregory.

But Gregory wasn’t going to let that happen.

“I already had my gun out. I reached for my gun. He gets out of his car, in a rage. You could see it in his eyes,” Gregory said.

“I told him he’s an idiot. I pointed my gun at him. He kept making progress toward me, swinging his nunchucks and that’s when I shot him,” Gregory said.

“I give all my love and appreciation to my husband. He did a phenomenal job and he’d do it again, for his family. That’s the kind of man he is,” Gregory’s wife said.

Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

Guns are the great equalizer for many intended victims of crime

Police responded to a call where a woman told them someone was acting oddly on her property – rolling around in the yard and pounding on her door. Another 911 caller said a man, who appeared to be very intoxicated, was hiding in one person’s bushes and knocking on another’s door.

While driving around the neighborhood after that call, officers said they found another person who told them he was looking for his “very intoxicated friend who was causing problems.”

Police said that’s when they heard gun shots.

When police got to the home they saw the homeowner applying pressure to a gunshot to Claunch’s neck. The homeowner, who is in his 70s, told police the man approached while he was doing yard work and punched him in the back of the head.

The homeowner said the man continued to beat him and even “mounted” him to hit him.

The man who was shot has since died.

The Superbug That Doctors Have Been Dreading Just Reached The U.S. – Washington Post
.

.
For the first time, researchers have found a person in the United States carrying bacteria resistant to antibiotics of last resort, an alarming development that the top U.S. public health official says could mean “the end of the road” for antibiotics.

The antibiotic-resistant strain was found last month in the urine of a 49-year-old Pennsylvania woman. Defense Department researchers determined that she carried a strain of E. coli resistant to the antibiotic colistin, according to a study published Thursday in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, a publication of the American Society for Microbiology. The authors wrote that the discovery “heralds the emergence of a truly pan-drug resistant bacteria.”

Colistin is the antibiotic of last resort for particularly dangerous types of superbugs, including a family of bacteria known as CRE, which health officials have dubbed “nightmare bacteria.”…

Finland Defies Outraged Liberals And EU, Slams Muslim Migrants In Massive Way – Mad World News

With the colossal influx of asylum seekers from Islamic countries flooding the West, Europe has seen a rise in rape, murder, and Sharia enforcement. In an applause-worthy move to not turn out like neighboring countries, Finland has shunned the leftist agenda, implementing a monumental change over the refugee population – and liberals and Muslim migrants could not be more outraged.

In a bid to preserve their culture and freedom, as well as national security and economic stability, Finland has defied the European Union’s strongarming of countries in the refugee crisis. The EU has bullied many nations into taking in more asylum seekers than previously agreed upon, all while refusing to place a cap on the number of applications to be approved. However, Finland is having a David and Goliath moment by standing up to the dictatorial union in a way that could save it from becoming the next rape capital of the world like neighboring Sweden.

Finland has officially announced that it will not only close its borders to asylum seekers from countries it considers not dangerous, it will also be sending back refugees it’s taken in from those same Islamic nations. Formally approved refugees from countries including Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, and other parts of the Middle East will begin their deportation process, since these nations are not considered war zones, according to Speisa.

Finland is looking for ways to crack down on migrants who are using the refugee crisis to either gain European benefits or commit crimes in the West, and the extradition of such illegals is now in effect. The Finnish government has confirmed that these countries are now safe enough for asylum seekers to return home, and that there is no reason for them to stay at the expense of taxpayers.

Although the new policy will not affect those who’ve been granted citizenship or permanent residence, the majority of asylum seekers will be slowly sent back. Out of 32,000 refugees who arrived in Finland in 2015, the government announced at the beginning of 2016 that two-thirds have overstayed their welcome and will be deported, the Express reports…

Obama’s Fast And Furious Guns Linked To Another 69 Dead – WorldNetDaily

The failed federal sting operation to trace weapons to Mexican drug cartels has been linked to the killing of another 69 people, including one massacre in which 22 died, according to a report from Judicial Watch, the Washington watchdog organization.

Judicial Watch has been pursuing details of Fast and Furious since the program was revealed and it was discovered that it put weapons in the hands of criminals without a trace.

The gun-running operation drew attention when it was revealed that Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed in a 2010 firefight with Mexican bandits armed with a weapon that originated with Fast and Furious.

Judicial Watch said that from December 2012 to March 2014, 94 Fast and Furious weapons were seized, including one found in the hideout of drug lord “Chapo” Guzman…

Blue Lives Matter Bill Makes Targeting Police A Hate Crime In Louisiana – Hot Air

Thursday the Democratic Governor of Lousiana, John Bel Edwards, signed a bill making it a hate crime to target police officers or other first responders. The bill is known as blue lives matter, a take off on the Black Lives Matter movement that has been critical of police in the past year. Gov. Edwards released a statement explaining his support for the bill:

“Coming from a family of law enforcement officers, I have great respect for the work that they do and the risks they take to ensure our safety,” said Gov. Edwards. “The men and women who put their lives on the line every day, often under very dangerous circumstances are true heroes and they deserve every protection that we can give them. They serve and protect our communities and our families. The overarching message is that hate crimes will not be tolerated in Louisiana.”

Prior to becoming law, hate crimes in Louisiana included offenses against any person because of their perceived race, age, gender, color, creed, disability, sexual orientation, national origin or ancestry. This new law adds police officers, firefighters and emergency medical service personnel.

The State Representative who wrote the bill was prompted to do so by the ambush shooting of Officer Darren Goforth in Texas last year. CNN reports:

“It looked like it was strictly done because someone didn’t like police officers, like a hate crime,” [State Rep. Lance] Harris said, adding that including officers and first responders to the hate-crime statute made sense because the existing law already is broad, covering attacks because of the victim’s race or gender or affiliation with certain organizations…

N.C. Gov. Gains 15-Point Swing After Opposing Obama’s Transgender Agenda – Breitbart

Five State Department Rules That Hillary’s Email Practices Violated – Washington Free Beacon

Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email address as secretary of state appears to have run afoul of five different laws and regulations governing information security at the State Department, according to a recent government report.

The report, from the State Department’s inspector general, has renewed scrutiny of Clinton’s email practices, which critics say jeopardized sensitive or classified information and shielded Clinton’s activities from laws designed to ensure public access to government information.

The inspector general’s examination focused on statutes and regulations specific to the State Department. The more serious allegations against Clinton have to do with potential violations of the Espionage Act, which lays out penalties for “gross negligence” in the handling of sensitive national security information.

That investigation is ongoing, but the report identifies five other laws or regulations that Clinton circumvented or failed to follow. They contradict the Clinton campaign’s repeated claims that Clinton’s email practices at the State Department complied with all relevant rules regarding federal records and information security.

Retaining agency records after leaving
“Departing officials and employees [may] not remove Federal records from agency custody” – 36 C.F.R. § 1222.24

Clinton’s personal email address, which she used exclusively as secretary of state, was housed on a private email server in her Chappaqua, N.Y. home. That meant her emails, which are considered federal records, were never in federal custody while she served as secretary. She didn’t just retain records after leaving the State Department; those records were never in the department’s possession in the first place…

It’s Not Their Fault, It’s yours! Swedish Girls Blamed For Rise In Migrant Sex Attacks – Daily Express

Swedish police have blamed Scandinavian teenage girls’ “Nordic alcohol culture” and Western behaviour for a steep rise in sex attacks carried out by migrants.

The damning police report, which is looking at why Sweden has the worst rates of physical and sexual violence committed against women and girls in Europe, has also excused refugees who it says “cannot handle the alcohol”.

Shockingly, the report revealed the majority of sex attack victims were under the age 15.

Police also admitted the majority of attacks have taken place in public places had been committed by migrants.

But it says refugees might not be able to “handle the alcohol” and simply feel “horny” and have “ignorance of the consequences for the girls”.

The report also warns that girls in Sweden are called “whores” and abused for “their clothes” which leaves many too scared to walk the streets.

Glenn Beck, Brad Thor Discuss A ‘Patriot’ Taking Out Donald Trump – American Mirror

Talk radio host Glenn Beck and best-selling author Brad Thor believe the only way to get a President Trump out of office is for a “patriot” to apparently kill him.

Appearing on Beck’s radio program this morning, Thor said:

I am about to suggest something very bad. It is a hypothetical I am going to ask as a thriller writer.

With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President? If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if, he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitution-mandated authority as president, I should say.

If he oversteps that, how do we get him out of office? And I don’t think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office, because you won’t be able to do it through Congress.

Clinton Releases Plan To Dissolve U.S. Border Within 100 Days – Daily Insider

Professional Republicans in the #NeverTrump movement continue to oppose the presumptive nominee selected by the GOP electorate and are now floating strategies to throw the election to Hillary Clinton.

However, an examination of Clinton’s campaign promises reveals that Republicans who are willing to thwart Trump in favor of Clinton will be complicit in electing a President who would seek to bring about the complete and, possibly irreversible, dissolution of our nation’s borders.

A review of Clinton’s stated positions on the issue suggests she is perhaps the most extreme candidate on immigration ever to run for the office of the U.S. Presidency. Her views place her even further outside the mainstream of the American electorate than President Barack Obama, who systematically dismantled U.S. immigration law during his two terms in office.

Below are just a few of the extreme immigration positions held by Clinton.

(1) Expanding Unconstitutional Executive Amnesty

Perhaps one of the most radical aspects Clinton’s open borders platform is that she is openly campaigning on defending and even expanding President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesties.

“You can count on me to defend President Obama’s executive actions on DACA and DAPA when I am president,” Clinton said, referring to Obama’s 2012 (DACA) and 2014 (DAPA) executive amnesties, which gave work permits and access to federal benefits to millions of illegal immigrants…

To be clear, Katie Couric is a media hack with zero credibility

The Washington Free Beacon exposes Couric’s bias on the issue of gun rights

The makers of a new Katie Couric documentary on gun violence deceptively edited an interview between Couric and a group of gun rights activists in an apparent attempt to embarrass the activists, an audio recording of the full interview shows.

At the 21:48 mark of Under the Gun a scene of Katie Couric interviewing members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a gun rights organization, is shown.

Couric can be heard in the interview asking activists from the group, “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”

The documentary then shows the activists sitting silently for nine awkward seconds, unable to provide an answer. It then cuts to the next scene. The moment can be watched here:

Now listen to the actual audio. The group in question offers several answers.

Couric did this deliberately. Understand this folks, she, and those making this film, KNOW, they used lies, yet, they refuse to even consider that such a tactic could be wrong. Again, truth is not a value of the Left

Fish-Keeping Father-Of-One Is Told To Demolish His Garden Pond Because Burglars Could Fall In It And Drown – Daily Mail

A fish fanatic has been told to get rid of the pond in his back garden because it could potentially be a hazard for burglars.

Sovereign Housing have told Kevin Sheehan to demolish the water features at his home in Abingdon, Oxfordshire.

When he asked why, the 62-year-old claims they told him the measure had to be adopted because ‘if someone breaks in they could fall in’.

Mr Sheehan, who lives with his partner and their one-year-old daughter Olivia, has slammed the ruling as ‘ridiculous’.

He told the Oxford Mail: ‘It’s my home, I am going to fight it as much as I can – there is no rule in the tenancy about fish ponds.

‘The reason they gave was if someone breaks into the back garden they can fall in the pond because there’s a six-foot fence all round and they can’t see it.

‘I said: “Well they shouldn’t be breaking in.”‘

‘I’ve got about 80 fish in the pond, where can I put these fish if I’ve not got a pond? I can’t put them in the river, I’d get into trouble. They can’t die because of this.’…

State Department Sets New Single-Day Record For Syrian Refugee Approvals – Washington Times

The State Department admitted 80 Syrian refugees on Tuesday and 225 on Monday, setting a single-day record, as President Obama tries to meet his target of 10,000 approvals this year – renewing fears among security analysts who say the administration is cutting corners to meet a political goal.

Officials insist they are moving faster because of improvements in screening and say they are still running all the traps on applicants.

But the spike is stunning, with more people accepted Monday alone than in the entire months of January or February.

“The Obama administration is on full throttle to admit as many people as possible before the time clock runs out on them,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies. “This is the classic scenario when political expediency trumps prudence, and someone slips through who shouldn’t have, and tragedy ensues.”

Powerless to stop the civil war in Syria, Mr. Obama has instead offered the U.S. as a haven for some of those fleeing the conflict.

He promised to accept 10,000 refugees from Oct. 1 through Sept. 30. As of Tuesday evening, the administration had approved 2,540 – an average of about 10 applications a day…

DNC Chair’s PAC Has Paid More In Salaries Than It Has Given To Democrats – Washington Free Beacon

The leadership PAC of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) has paid out nearly $100,000 more in salaries than it has given to Democratic candidates during the 2016 election cycle, a review of Federal Election Commission records shows.

The Democrats Win Seats PAC, or DWS PAC, has a stated mission of directing “resources to help elect Democrats around the country.” However, records show the PAC has spent more on staff than helping campaigns.

Between Jan. 1, 2015 and April 30, 2016, the PAC paid $153,453 to Lindsey Schulte, the committee’s highest-paid employee, according to a review of the DWS PAC’s finances.

Jason O’Malley, the second highest-paid employee at the PAC, collected $69,112 in salary and an additional $20,000 for “fundraising consulting fees.”

Meredith Swan made $37,463 and Anna Stolitzka made $3,164 since January 2015, bringing the PAC’s payroll to $283,282.

The DWS PAC contributed just $186,000 to the committees of Democratic politicians, with the largest donation of $15,000 going to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The PAC disbursed $97,282 less to candidates than it paid to the people running the committee.

Oberlin Progressives Want Low Grades Thrown Out, Conversations Instead Of Written Exams – Truth Revolt

The list of demands from social justice college students around the country is growing daily. Most of them demand bully-proof safe spaces just to escape from any and all perceived oppression. Now, some at Oberlin College are asking for a bit more from administration: throw out all grades below ‘C’ and convert written exams to conversations.

With having to juggle protests, general activism, and avoiding contrary ideas written in chalk, these students are finding little time left to study and need someone to throw them a lifeline, and fast. What’s worse, as Reason points out, the stress, mental anguish, and living in a “toxic” atmosphere, is leading many students to drop out altogether.

The latest in desperate pleas on campus were discovered in a piece for The New Yorker that introduced several student activists at Oberlin who are asking the impossible.

One of them is Megan Bautista, a self-described “Afro-Latinx.” She expressed frustration at having to drive back and forth to attend the protests for cop shooting victim Tamir Rice forty minutes away and keep up school work back in 2014.

“A lot of us started suffering academically,” Bautista noted.

She had hoped that Oberline would see the needs of the Black Lives Matter movement and once again follow its previous grade modifications offered during the Vietnam War protests and the Kent State shooting in 1970. She signed her name along with over 1,300 other students to a petition asking for the elimination of average grades and below. However, the administration didn’t oblige…

‘An Abuse Of Power:’ IRS To Face Lawmakers After Thousands Seized From Small Business Owners – Daily Signal

For more than four years, Maryland dairy farmer Randy Sowers has been fighting the federal government, asking it to right what many say was a wrong.

In Feb. 2012, two federal agents told Sowers, who owns South Mountain Creamery in Frederick, Md. that the Internal Revenue Service was seizing more than $60,000 from his farm’s bank account under a subset of civil forfeiture laws governing cash transactions.

According to the IRS, Sowers had committed structuring violations. Structuring is the act of making consistent cash deposits or withdrawals of under $10,000 to avoid government reporting requirements.

But the dairy farmer didn’t know he was doing anything wrong, and because Sowers and his wife sold milk at local farmer’s markets – where customers paid primarily in cash – they frequently made cash deposits into the business’s bank account.

Kasich Joins Cruz, Rubio In Keeping Delegates As Campaign Leverage – Fox News

Ohio Gov. John Kasich has become the latest Donald Trump rival to take a clenched-fist approach to the delegates he won during the primary season, moving this week to keep those delegates as bargaining chips going into the party’s July nominating convention.

A former top aide to the Kasich presidential campaign confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday that he is instructing his delegates to stay bound to him through the convention.

Kasich joins Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in keeping delegates on lockdown despite suspending his presidential primary campaign weeks ago. Though Trump is expected to formally clinch the nomination during the final June 7 primaries, his ex-rivals are thought to be holding onto delegates as a means of leverage.

Man marries tree, no, I am not making this up

Transspeciesism? Good Freaking Grief!

This May environmental activist Richard Torres married Mexico’s famous 1,000-year-old Arbol del Tule, or Tule Tree, in an Inca ceremony full of smoke and reverence for Pachamama — the mother earth goddess.

People in Oaxaca, Mexico were surprised to find Torres all dolled up, hugging and kissing the tree. It is unclear, at this point, if Torres is experiencing species dysphoria. If he is we should presumably applaud his brave attempts to be close to a tree and be his true self. If not, there are some uncomfortable questions to ask. For instance, is this marriage legal? Has the tree given consent, or is Torres committing sexual assault by slobbering over it? If the tree produces seedlings, can Torres sue its promiscuous heart, since presumably Torres was not able to consummate the marriage?

Not that I’m judging Torres. Heaven forbid! That would be microaggressive, hurtful, and sexist — oh, and speciest too, I suppose. Will the Tule tree be allowed to divorce, or is it forever trapped by our patriarchal rules that privilege males like Torres?

Dave at Moonbatterty has the money quote

Squirrels living in knotholes could be in for a surprise during the honeymoon.

 

Have I mentioned how awful The People’s Republic of New Jersey is?

Anti-self defense anyone? Matt Vespa at Bearing Arms has the latest dose of draconianism

We all know New Jersey is a bastion of anti-gun sentiment. It’s a deep-blue Democratic state that accepts carry rights, though you need to show a “justifiable need,” which has been the source of ire and mockery from Second Amendment supporters. Arguably, it’s an unconstitutional provision, one that was recently struck down in Washington, D.C., but the fight to put this portion of many “may-issue (anti-gun)” states’ carry laws in the crosshairs has been a steep climb. The Supreme Court has refused to hear arguments in two cases, where this portion was directly addressed. No dice.

Yet, moving away from the legal sphere, you would think that if you dealt with protecting the nation from terrorism, and working at a site that has been threatened by terrorists, would be good enough reason for one to have a concealed carry permit. Well, that’s not apparently what New Jersey thinks, and for those serving in our military to boot (via NJ101.5):

When it comes to firearms, Lt. Col. Terry S. Russell has more knowledge and training than most people in New Jersey. The 27-year U.S. Army soldier holds a senior position at the Picatinny Arsenal in Wharton.

But neither his expertise — nor the fact that he works at a military site that has been under threat of terrorist attacks — were enough for the state to grant him a concealed-carry permit.

In denying his application for a concealed-carry permit, Oceanport Police Chief Daniel W. Barcus said Russell was unable to demonstrate “justifiable need” because there had been no specific attacks or threats made directly on him.

To legally carry concealed firearms in New Jersey, residents have to apply to their local police for a permit demonstrating such a need. But critics of the state’s strict gun laws say this results in very few people other than acting and retired law enforcement officials getting approval for such permits.

[…]

“I have been fully trained and qualified, at a minimum annually, to skillfully employ handguns and rifles,” Russell explains.

In addition, he’s been “vetted through the Department of Defense security office every five years for the past 25 years” to have Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information clearance.” An attachment to his application shows that he already holds a concealed carry permit in Texas.

A Baltimore cop was acquitted of all charges Monday in connection with the controversial death of Freddie Gray last year.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake immediately called for calm in the city, which has been rocked by rioting, looting and arson in the wake of Gray’s death.

Police Officer Edward Nero, 30, had been charged with second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and two counts of misconduct for allegedly helping to arrest Gray without probable cause and then acting negligently by also failing to make sure he was buckled in a police van April 12, 2015.

Gray’s neck was broken during the transport while he was handcuffed and shackled. The 25-year-old man died a week later.

Nero – a former New Jersey volunteer firefighter – was one of six Baltimore cops charged in the case. He opted against a jury trial and put his fate in the hands of Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Barry G. Williams.

The judge said prosecutors didn’t show Nero acted unreasonably – and that the cop didn’t handcuff Gray…

More than $22 billion per year in new regulatory costs were imposed on Americans last year, pushing the total burden for the Obama years to exceed $100 billion annually.

The consequences of this rampant rulemaking are widespread:

* Restricted access to credit under the hundreds of rules unleashed by the Dodd-Frank financial regulation statute

* Fewer health care choices and higher medical costs from the Affordable Care Act…

Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood claims that young actors in Hollywood are being sexually abused by predatory high-powered ‘vipers’ working in the industry..

The Hobbit actor, 35, told The Sunday Times that the child abuse is ‘probably still happening’.

Shocking allegations that top Hollywood figures have been protecting child abusers have circulated widely in recent years.

Several industry figures have been convicted following claims of sex abuse and former child actors – including The Goonies actor Corey Feldman, 44 – claimed he was ‘surrounded’ by molesters when he was a teenager.

Anne Henry, co-founder of Bizparentz – a group to help young actors – said that Tinseltown is currently sheltering around ‘100 active abusers’.

Wood, who stars in his new film The Trust told The Sunday Times that his mother had protected him from abuse when he first arrived in Hollywood aged eight…

The scandal In Washington No One Is Talking About – New York Post
.

.
The deadly-but-forgotten government gun-running scandal known as “Fast and Furious” has lain dormant for years, thanks to White House stonewalling and media compliance. But newly uncovered emails have reopened the case, exposing the anatomy of a coverup by an administration that promised to be the most transparent in history.

A federal judge has forced the release of more than 20,000 pages of emails and memos previously locked up under President Obama’s phony executive-privilege claim. A preliminary review shows top Obama officials deliberately obstructing congressional probes into the border gun-running operation.

Fast and Furious was a Justice Department program that allowed assault weapons – including .50-caliber rifles powerful enough to take down a helicopter – to be sold to Mexican drug cartels allegedly as a way to track them…

College Reverses Firing Of Ex-Army General After Transgender Bathroom Comments – Washington Free Beacon

An all-male college in Virginia has reversed its decision to fire a prominent retired U.S. Army general hours after reports that he was removed over political correctness provoked outcry.

Hampden-Sydney College decided to offer Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin a one-year contract, walking back its decision to fire Boykin after he made controversial comments about transgender bathrooms that angered LGBT activists.

Fox News first reported Thursday that Boykin, an original member of the Delta Force who served as undersecretary of defense for intelligence under President George W. Bush, had been fired after nine years of teaching at the school after criticizing transgender bathrooms.

“The first man who goes into the restroom with my daughter will not have to worry about surgery,” Boykin said of the debate surrounding transgender bathroom rules during a speech to conservatives in March.

The comments angered LGBT activists, dozens of whom signed a letter demanding the college fire him. They accused him of calling for violence against transgenders, he said…

Arizona TV Reporter Arrested For Defecating On Lawn While Covering Story – Breitbart

Phoenix, Arizona, news reporter Jonathan Lowe was arrested Monday for allegedly defecating on someone’s lawn while covering a news story.

A neighbor spotted the 33-year-old KPHO journalist using the side of a house as a latrine, according to a police report obtained by Phoenix New Times.

“I know what you want to talk to me about,” Lowe told an arresting police officer. “I’ve been feeling very sick and I’ve been stuck in this van all day.”

Bottom-Feeding liar at Raw Story writes fallacious hit piece on Bob Owens

Sarah K. Burris apparently has no ability to be objective, read, or use any facts, or maybe she is just a compulsive liar. Her smear job on Bearing Arms editor Bob Owens is so full of lies and half truths that posterity demands it be corrected. You can read what Gun Free Zone wrote about Burris’s lack of integrity here. It is good, but what the heck, I might as well set the record straight too.

In October 2015, Owens suggested that “radical” Democrats will be hanged because they intend to “start a civil war” against Republicans and those who own guns, according to Media Matters.

Damn Sarah, are you seriously citing Media Marxists? They are a left-wing site dedicated to smearing anyone in the media who is to the right of Lennin. The fact is Owens is correct to assert that the Left is actively seeking to disarm law-abiding Americans. He is also right to note that many Americans would simply not comply with such statist measures such as gun confiscation. Some people, Sarah, treasure their liberties. In fact, this is what Owens wrote

The radical left is getting much louder, much more shrill, and much more insistent in their desire to use force to get their way and impose their ideas on the American people.

If they try such a radical path it would end poorly and quickly.

The military and local law enforcement agencies in the United States that the radical left has been trashing in public since the Vietnam War until now will not take part in any plot to disarm American citizens.

Soldiers, Marines and sheriffs may even defect to actively resist any federal officers from a pool of just over 100,000 who would take on the suicidal task of taking on the military, local police, and a hundred righteously-angry million gun owners, led by over a thousand angry Green Berets that warned President Obama in 2013 not push his luck.

Who is left to carrying out these confiscatory fantasies but the radicals themselves?

Are Cornell University Art Professor Carl Ostendarp or Coppin State writing instructor D. Watkins going to going on raiding parties? Are comedian Amy Schumer and her Senator-cousin Chuck going to kick in doors? Somehow, I don’t see President Mom Jeans picking up a breaching ram and leading by example.

I’m glad that these totalitarians are finally showing their true colors to their fellow Americans, as it will assure a crushing defeat of their anti-American ideals at the ballot box. Perhaps then sane Democrats like Jim Webb can pick up the remains of the Democrat Party and either return it to something President Kennedy would have respected, or start something new.

Of course, we’ve got to get the elections, and these radicals are pushing hard for action, now, and they’re proving with every passing day that reason and constitutionality are the least of their concerns.

We do not want a civil war against the radical left wing of the Democrat Party, but let it be made abundantly clear that if they start one, they will be utterly destroyed by armed free citizens, as the Founders intended.

Owens is not advocating for anything nor is he predicting that such events would happen. As he points out, law enforcement will not carry out such draconian acts, nor will our military

If that isn’t bad enough, Owens is most known for targeting the families of slain African-American youths Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis and Tamir Rice.

Just a few months after Martin was shot by George Zimmerman, Owens called him “a violent, drug-abusing thug who appeared to get off on hurting people” and “a semi-literate violent criminal.” He also slammed the upcoming musical about Martin’s life, saying that it would be “whitewashing a black heart” and which he called an attempt to “whitewash a thug’s death.”

Sarah, what Owens did, and what many others did, myself included, was to share facts about Trayvon Martin, and the case. Martin was a thug who tried to kill someone and paid the proper price for such an action. Of course, the very idea of self-defense seems to give poor Sarah the vapors

Owens declared a year later, “good people … will arm themselves against violent young predators like Trayvon Martin” because “any society that hopes to survive simply has no choice.”

Well Sarah, the choice to defend one’s life, or the lives of their loved ones is human nature frankly. The fact is hundreds of thousands of times every year, Americans use firearms to defend themselves. Owens cites many of these cases at Bearing Arms, as do I at The DaleyGator That is what good people do Sarah. Think for a moment where our society would be if those Americans were not armed? Come on Sarah, stop emoting and think. The right to self-defense is the most basic human right there is. Finally, Sarah, allow me to enlighten you about Bob Owens and his “attack” as you crudely put it on Lucy McBath. Here is what Owens wrote about McBath’s campaign against stand your ground laws and about the needless and tragic death of her son

I feel a great deal of sympathy for Lucy McBath. Her son, Jordan Davis, was murdered by an arrogant and violence-prone thug named Michael Dunn. Dunn is a Florida man who shot into a carload of teens in an argument that erupted over loud music from a car stereo. Dunn will spend the rest of his life in prison for Jordan’s murder and the attempted murders of Jordan’s friends, as he clearly should.

People react differently to tragedy. Some use these life-shattering experiences to redirect their energies to do great good. Unfortunately, Lucy McBath chose a different path. She has become radicalized, and now travels the nation attempting to strip law-abiding citizens of their most basic natural right as a human being, the right bear arms for self defense.

Her decision has led her down a very dark road, and has her associating with some very bad people. As one of the leading faces of the infamous gun control group Moms Demand Action, McBath has become a serial liar, and sadly seems to be more comfortable with her lies as time goes on. If you’re not familiar with this fringe group, you aren’t missing much. Moms Demand Action has repeatedly be hammered for gross dishonesty, committing apparent perjury, deliberately and grossly manipulating data about the number of school shootings, and dramatically inflating their actual numbers along the way to be being ingloriously named the worst astroturfers in the nation.

McBath has spent the majority of her time with Moms Demand Action relentlessly attacked so-called Stand Your Ground laws in specific. McBath asserting time and again that the laws allow citizens to gun down one another with impunity.

Owens, as I, feel tremendous sympathy for this woman’s loss. Michael Dunn deserves his punishment, as Owens points out. But, understand that McBath is using her tragedy to try and destroy basic human rights. She is lying in an attempt to erode the liberties of others. Her campaign, if successful, would not  prevent future tragedies but ensure more. Again, I feel for her loss, but I will not allow her, or anyone else to lie or to strip my right to defend myself and my loved ones away. Should we all give up rights every time a tragedy occurs? Of course not.

College reverses course, will not fire ex Army general over “anti-LGBT” comments

Is it not amazing how a bit of outrage can push back the Speech Police?

Once again, Liberalism is an Ideology of Convenience

Noted actor flies 8,000 miles on a private jet, to accept environmental award.

Hollywood’s resident global warming doom merchant is also its foremost fossil fuel-burning hypocrite.

DiCaprio attended the Cannes Film Festival Monday and was seen partying with model Georgia Fowler. Two days later, The Revenant star was in New York, where he received the Fishermen’s Ball’s “Big Fish” award for his commitment to clean water. A day later, DiCaprio was back in France giving a speech at amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS gala.

One week, two continents, and 8,000 carbon emission-powered miles later, Leonardo DiCaprio was already back to his hashtag activism and fighting climate change on social media.

All this from the man who says that “a massive change is required right now, one that leads to a new collective consciousness, a new collective evolution of the human race, inspired and enabled by a sense of urgency.”

Leo is a good actor, and a massive hypocrite. But most of all he is an elitist who preaches one thing to the little people while engaging in behavior he himself says will kill us all. How convenient! How very Liberal!
