Anti-Gun Democrat Arrested After Running Out Of His House Naked And Shooting At His Ex-Wife 10 Times

Anti-Gun Democrat Arrested For Shooting At His Ex-Wife – Downtrend

.

.
Virgil K. Smith is a democrat in the Michigan state legislature. As a Representative, and now as Senator, he has made a career out of opposing the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms, earning himself a 0% rating from the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Ownership and a “D” rating from the NRA. Over the weekend, this anti-gun crusader showed some typical liberal hypocrisy by firing at least 10 shots at his ex-wife following a domestic dispute.

The Detroit Free Press reports that Smith was at home getting busy with a lady friend when hisangry ex-wife showed up. First she was banging on his bedroom window, and then went to the front door. Smith opened the door and his ex-wife pushed her way in. She ran to the bedroom and began attacking Smith’s girlfriend.

Smith tackled his ex-wife and they knocked over a TV. He told his ex-wife to leave, and despite her previous irrational behavior, she complied. Maybe it’s because Smith threatened her with a gun, but that’s not how he tells it. Once outside, the ex-wife threw a chair at Smith’s house. Why there was a chair outside for throwing purposes is anyone’s guess.

At this point, Smith came outside, reportedly naked, with a .22 caliber rifle. As his wife tried to drive off, he shot at her, hitting her Mercedes 10 times. Luckily, she was not struck by the gunfire. He put so much lead into her car that police initially thought he blasted it with a shotgun.

Smith was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault with a gun and malicious destruction of property. He is currently being held in the Detroit Detention Center as police continue their investigation. For Smith’s part, he told police that it was the stupidest thing he’d ever done.

Besides being an anti-gun hypocrite and a terrible shot, it turns out Smith has a lengthy career as a failed criminal as well. He has 2 DUIs (or the Michigan equivalent of driving while intoxicated) that resulted in his license being revoked. He was caught stealing a textbook from the college bookstore and then lied to police about his identity. He was convicted of disorderly conduct and giving false information. He was also busted trying to steal a bottle of tequila and was convicted of retail fraud, which I guess is what they call shoplifting in Michigan.

Cases like this make me understand why democrats are so anti-gun; they can’t be trusted with firearms and they know it. And they figure if they can’t be trusted with firearms; nobody should be trusted with them. I think democrats, liberals, and anti-gun fanatics should voluntarily disarm instead of going after our rights. It would be easier, more Constitutional, and everyone would be much safer.

Clinton Crime Update: House Select Committee On Benghazi Summons Hillary To Testify

Benghazi Panel Summons Clinton – Washington Examiner

.

.
A House panel Tuesday formally requested Hillary Clinton to testify about the private server and email account she used while serving as secretary of state.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, sent a request to Clinton’s personal attorney, David E. Kendall, requesting that Clinton appear before the committee no later than May 1 for a transcribed interview about the server and email.

The request comes after Kendall told Gowdy that the server had been wiped clean and that it would be impossible to recover the 30,000 emails Clinton deleted last year.

Gowdy, in his request to Kendall, also asked Clinton to “reconsider” her refusal to turn over the server to a neutral third party, which he called “highly unusual, if not unprecedented.”

Clinton said she only deleted personal emails and turned over every work-related message to the State Department, which is reviewing the data to filter out classified information.

“Because of the Secretary’s unique arrangement with herself as it relates to public records during and after her tenure as Secretary of State.” Gowdy wrote, “this Committee is left with no alternative but to request Secretary Clinton appear before this Committee for a transcribed interview to better understand decisions the Secretary made relevant to the creation, maintenance, retention, and ultimately deletion of public records.”

In Tuesday’s letter, Gowdy warned that Clinton’s decision not to turn over the server, “the House of Representatives as a whole will need to consider its next steps.”

Rep. Elijah Cummings, of Maryland, who serves as the top Democrat on the Benghazi panel, said in a statement to the Washington Examiner that Gowdy’s depiction of Clinton is inaccurate because Clinton has always been willing to talk to the panel under oath.

“Secretary Clinton agreed to testify months ago – in public and under oath – so the Select Committee’s claim that it has no choice but to subject her to a private staff interview is inaccurate,” Cummings said. “Rather than drag out this political charade into 2016 and selectively leak portions of a closed-door interview, the Committee should schedule the public hearing, make her records public and re-focus its efforts on the attacks in Benghazi.”

The House has the power to subpoena the server, but neither Gowdy nor House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, will say whether it will use that authority. Boehner has demanded Clinton turn over the server.

Gowdy said he wants a neutral party to examine the deleted emails to find out of there is any information related to the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. The House panel wants to examine the State Department’s role before, during and after the attack.

Gowdy noted in the letter that even though Clinton said she deleted the emails, it is “technically possible,” to retrieve them.

House Judiciary Committee Unveils Four Bills To Strengthen Interior Enforcement Of U.S. Immigration Laws (Videos)

Strengthening The Interior Enforcement Of Our Nation’s Immigration Laws – House Judiciary Committee

.

.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee Chairman Trey Gowdy, Congressman Lamar Smith, Congressman Jason Chaffetz, and Congressman John Carter have unveiled four pieces of legislation to strengthen the interior enforcement of our immigration laws, remove the ability of the President to unilaterally shut down immigration enforcement, ensure jobs are preserved for legal workers, reform the United States’ asylum laws, and make sure unaccompanied alien minors who make the dangerous trek to the United States are safely returned home.

THE “LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT”

Science, Space, and Technology Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas), the former chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, introduced the Legal Workforce Act to ensure jobs are preserved for Americans and legal workers. This bill requires all U.S. employers to use E-Verify, a web-based system that checks the Social Security numbers of newly hired employees against Social Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security records to help ensure that they are genuinely eligible to work in the U.S.

Bill Summary

————————————————————————————————————————–

THE “PROTECTION OF CHILDREN ACT OF 2015″

Chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee John Carter (R-Texas) is the author of the Protection of Children Act to ensure unaccompanied alien minors who make the dangerous journey to the United States are safely returned home. For those who stay with a sponsor in the United States while awaiting their immigration hearing, the bill provides for greater transparency and safety of these minors to ensure they are not inadvertently delivered into the hands of criminals or abusers.

Bill Summary

————————————————————————————————————————–

THE “ASYLUM REFORM AND BORDER PROTECTION ACT OF 2015″

Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, is author of the Asylum Reform and Border Protection Act. This bill closes loopholes in current law that encourage illegal immigration, such as weak standards for asylum claims that enable the Obama Administration’s rubberstamping of fraudulent applications and policies, and effectively ends “catch and release.”

Bill Summary

————————————————————————————————————————–

THE “MICHAEL DAVIS, JR. IN HONOR OF STATE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ACT”

The Michael Davis, Jr. in Honor of State and Local Law Enforcement Act is authored by Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.). This legislation ensures that the President of the United States can’t shut down immigration enforcement unilaterally by granting states and localities specific congressional authorization to assist in the enforcement of federal immigration law. It also strengthens national security and protects American communities by improving visa security, facilitating the removal of dangerous criminal aliens, and barring terrorists from entering and remaining in the United States.

Arizona Sheriff To House Judiciary Committee: Only 44% Of Southern Border Under Operational Control

Babeu To Congress: Only 44% Border Operational Control, 30% Of Border Crossers Caught Already Have A U.S. Criminal Record – Universal Free Press

.

.
While Hussein Obama and his minions make proclamations that a border he has never laid his own eyes on is more secure than it’s ever been, people who really know and who have no reason to try to hide the truth are disputing his false claims.

On Tuesday, Pinal County Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu testified before the House Judiciary Committee on the state of affairs in the United States and his county as it pertains to the issue of illegal immigration. The sheriff had nothing good to say regarding the impact of the lawlessness of the Obama regime is having on law enforcement, the nation at larger and his community.

Sheriff Babeu noted in his prepared text that his county is the number one area for drug and human trafficking into the United States in the entire country, so he is qualified to address the issues. He cited statistics that show between 87,915 and 127,285 illegals were captured annually in his sector alone, figures which do not include the amount of illegals who successfully entered the United States without being apprehended. Of the ones who were caught, Babeu states that between 17 and 30 percent were criminals who already had a record for crimes they previously committed within the United States.

He also cited a recent GAO report which stated that for 56% of our border the United States did not have operational control and that due to natural geographic features and road access, much of the illegal traffic from the three of four Arizona sectors which still are not controlled is funneled through his county.

He noted that his office led the largest drug bust in Arizona history, valued at $3 billion dollars, which resulted in the arrest of 76 members of the Sinaloa Drug Cartel, and the confiscation of 108 firearms, two of which led back to Eric Holder’s fast and furious gun smuggling operation.

He used the presence of 28,600 troops presently stationed in Korea to provide contrast to the situation in America where our own border is largely left to the responsibility of local law enforcement who face what in essence is a foreign militarized criminal operation.

Sheriff Babeu advised Congress of the February 2013 release by ICE of 207 illegal alien inmates in one day, 48 percent of the serious or violent offenders, with a total of 408 in his county that year and the releases now totaling into the hundreds of thousands. These criminal predators now roam our streets, seeking American victims, rather than those of their native lands. In 2014 alone ICE charged only 24 percent, 143,000 of 585,000 potentially deportable illegal aliens which had already been apprehended by law enforcement, releasing the others onto the streets of America. In his county alone, Babeu has been informed by ICE insiders that they are releasing 30 to 50 illegals per day.

He also addressed multiple deportations and the policy of no consequence for subsequent immigration violations as well as the reward system created by allowing the Central American border crashers to remain and supporting their every need.

He also notes how the declaration of Hussein Obama is that five million illegals will receive amnesty, and how that figure is, as is customary, a blatant lie to the American people. He refers to the memorandum of DHS Director and Obama criminal co-conspirator Jeh Johnson which indicates that virtually none of the estimated eleven million illegals in the country will be prosecuted or even pursued. He says, “This is not prosecutorial discretion, but instead an intentional and flagrant disregard of the law and we will all suffer the consequences.”

He proposed a simple but aggressive plan that will solve the problem if it were to be adopted. Babeu recommended, “First, deploy 6,000 armed soldiers for a period of two years. While armed soldiers are deployed, complete the double barrier fence with the security platforms, lighting, sensors and asphalt roads to support rapid deployment of U.S. Border Patrol. Thirdly, fully enforce the law without any diversion option for illegals.”

He called upon Congress to take aggressive action to defend our borders, our communities and our nation as well as highlighting their responsibility to stand up for themselves and their legislative body which is under assault by this dictatorial regime.

The problem is fixable, but it won’t happen without taking action.
