Support these companies who are ignoring pressure to #BoycottNRA

At the Gun Range
At the Gun Range

As we hear reports of companies distancing themselves from the NRA and caving to Liberal cries to #BoycottNRA, we’re also getting reports of companies who have (at least for now) decided to maintained their relationship with them.

Yahoo reports these companies have decided to cut ties (bold added for emphasis):

Facing pressure from consumers, the First National Bank of Omaha said Thursday it would stop issuing NRA-branded Visa credit cards after its contract with the group expires. Enterprise Holdings, which operates the rental car brands Enterprise, National and Alamo, says it will end its discount program for NRA members next month, along with Avis and Budget. Hertz is out, too.

Other companies ditching the NRA include Chubb, which underwrites the NRA’s Carry Guard firearms insurance; Symantec’s LifeLock, an identity-theft prevention service, and Norton, which offers computer security software; home security system provider SimpliSafe; Allied and North American Van Lines, two moving services; and MetLife, which had offered savings on home and auto insurance to NRA members.

To date, these companies have held strong. I have to say, I’m pleasantly surprised to see some of these names.

  • Amazon
  • Apple
  • Clearent
  • FedEx
  • Google
  • Harland Clarke Direct Selling Solutions
  • HotelPlanner
  • Lockton Affinity
  • ManageUrID
  • MidwayUSA
  • NetSpend
  • OmniHotels
  • Roku
  • TrueCar
  • VinesseWines
  • YouTube

And Yahoo reports that “The NRA Business Alliance maintains a directory of local businesses.” So you can check to see who else you can support!

Californians reward sex offenders early release from prison for “good behavior”

California Flag
California Flag

California voters are SOOO smart (we already knew that, right?) In 2016 they voted in Proposition 57 which allows for the early release of most of the states prison inmates except those incarcerated for certain violent crimes. That doesn’t mean they WILL be released. But it does mean they COULD be released rather than serve their full sentences.

What voters failed to predict is, that early release also applies to sex offenders. LA Times reports:

California must consider earlier parole for potentially thousands of sex offenders, maybe even those convicted of pimping children, a state judge said Friday.

 

That could allow earlier parole for those convicted of raping a drugged or unconscious victim, intimately touching someone who is unlawfully restrained, incest, pimping a minor, indecent exposure and possessing child pornography.

Yes folks. Californians are apparently ok with granting early release to potentially 10’s of thousands of sex offenders because Californians want to believe that good behavior in prison should be rewarded. Let’s see how this one works out. Any predictions?

Black Genocide: Who’s behind the well-orchestrated agenda? And still funding it today?

Selective Sterilization, Abortion, LiveAction
Selective Sterilization, Abortion, LiveAction

Live Action is screening a powerful documentary on social media this month called Maafa21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America. See powerful testimony from one woman who was subjected to forced sterilization without her knowledge.

At the age of 14, after becoming pregnant from a violent rape, the eugenics board of the State of North Carolina decided Elaine Riddick should not have any more children and sterilized her without consent. Riddick claims the reason she was sterilized without her knowledge or approval was because the state of North Carolina had ruled her “feebleminded,” a degrading term commonly used in eugenics. She recently told her emotional story in the powerful documentary film, produced by Life Dynamics, Inc., called Maafa21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America, which Live Action is screening on social media this month. North Carolina’s eugenics program was funded in part by a member of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s Board of Directors and close friend of the Federation — Clarence Gamble. Gamble sat on the board of Sanger’s American Birth Control League (ABCL) as well as Planned Parenthood, and was also a financier of Sanger’s birth control crusade. In addition, he helped to fund the North Carolina Eugenics program.

Maafa21 clearly exposes the orchestrated plan of sterilization, birth control, and eugenics (improving the human race by controlled selective breeding) by groups intent on reducing, or even eliminating, the black population following the abolition of slavery. Yes folks. THIS is part of our history. And yes. We ALL need to know about it!

Blame the shooter and those who failed him… NOT the 2nd Amendment!

Once again, Second Amendment supporters are called to the mat to justify our allegiance to a Constitutional right that, in the view of many on the Left, caused the bloodshed of innocent children in Parkland, Florida. Numerous Democrat representatives, candidates, talking heads, and even narrative-supporting children have taken to the airwaves to project their feelings and “solutions” to gun violence.

Most simply pull directly from the Democrat playbook by calling for restriction on firearm purchases with “background checks, waiting periods, and disqualifying terrorists, domestic abusers, and those in a mental health crisis.” While all of those are considered by gun control advocates as “simple solutions,” none of them would have stopped the Florida shooter from destroying the lives of these families.

Nikolas Cruz passed a background check, he did not buy a rifle and immediately go on his killing spree, he was not designated a terrorist, domestic abuser, nor was he in the system as having a mental health crisis. These “simple solutions” are nothing but a call for infringement of gun rights and appear to have more to do with exploiting a tragedy for political gains, than understanding the loss this community is dealing with or the governmental missteps that led to the shooting in the first place.

The cause of this tragedy was not due to a lack of laws restricting the lawful masses, but the inexcusable failure of the FBI to respond to information from concerned citizens. The agency received multiple calls, including one to their hotline providing information about the weapons, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, which concerned the caller that Nikolas Cruz may attack a school.

What was the defense from the FBI when there was no follow-up investigation to the local field office or to the kid’s family and home?  Quite simply, it, was “our bad” and “we get a lot of calls each day.”

Instead of denigrating and pushing a political agenda revolving around the continual degradation of a Constitutional right afforded, protected, and used lawfully by millions of Americans, let us blame the shooter and those who failed him – not the Second Amendment!

The Second Amendment has become so taboo, that even giving kids water guns is believed to cause gun violence and an unnatural obsession with firearms.  Kids should have structured and intelligent introductions to guns and their intended purpose of self-defense, but instead parents allow them to be experienced through video games, where they sit mindlessly online and get into foul-mouthed verbal shouting wars while trying to do nothing but kill each other in a simulated environment!

I vividly remember Columbine when I was in high school, and hearing the discussions afterward blaming violent video games for the desensitizing of kids to gun violence. Back when my parents were in school, it was not uncommon for kids to bring guns to school in their vehicles, and even into the classrooms for show and tell.

My dad would tell stories about growing up in New York, where he would walk down the street with a loaded rifle at sixteen to practice shooting cans by the railroad tracks. He purchased his first rifle at fourteen with no background check or waiting period. SWAT teams were not dispersed, police raids were not performed at his home, and no one assumed he had some sort of mental illness for simply exercising his Constitutional rights.

Too often, these tragedies are used to rationalize the irrational. Feelings become more important than facts, late night TV show hosts become morality kings, and the heinous acts of the few become all that is needed to justify usurping the rights of the lawful majority.

The real solutions to gun violence lie in taking an honest and proactive look at the mental damage from psychotropic drugs that are prescribed more and more each day. We need all our representatives to perform a thorough review as to why the FBI dismissed all the warning signs of this shooter. But perhaps most importantly, we need to discredit and ignore those who politicize the actions of a few to take away the rights of the many.

Is this U.S. City Council trying to implement Sharia law?

Muslim, Women, Children, Islam, Burqa
Muslim, Women, Children, Islam, Burqa

Hamtramck, Michigan proves that Americans are embracing Muslim-Americans in political positions. Out of their 6 member City Council board, 4 are Muslim. Now they are beginning to see why so many have warned that Islam is not compatible with American freedoms.

BB4SP covers this story via MadWorldNews:

The first order of business for the newly elected Muslims was to build an Islamic center that could accommodate 2,000 people. Of course, the unsuspecting residents had no idea that “Islamic center” means “mosque” in politically correct lingo.

The next step for the Sharia council was to ban local businesses from selling alcoholwithin 500 feet of a mosque. Residents are also worried that new legislation will interfere with “entertainment” in their town, but that’s now the least of their worries.

Did you see this one on the nightly news? If not, BB4SP caught it for us and writes:

A good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun… If Democrats had the gun control they so badly want, these two women would be dead. There are numerous stories like this one that goes unreported each day and we are glad that the mom and her daughter won’t have to worry about this criminal threatening them again.

Daily Wire:

Law enforcement officials in New Mexico are praising a man who stepped in to save a mother and her daughter after the woman’s estranged husband rammed her car and began shooting at them.

Albuquerque Police say that 66-year-old Qian Ming intentionally crashed into the woman’s vehicle on Sunday and then opened fire, hitting his daughter in the shoulder, KRQE News 13 reported.

Officer Simon Drobik says that a 34-year-old good Samaritan, who is not being named since he has not been charged with a crime, saw the attack unfold and intervened.

CNN thinks Trump’s comments on school shooter’s mental health could be harmful

Does anyone else find it ironic that CNN thinks Trump should not be commenting on someone else’s mental health for fear it may be harmful?

In a tweet Thursday, President Donald Trump described someone who would shoot up a school as a “savage sicko.” At CNN’s town hall on the Parkland, Florida, school shootings on Wednesday, NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch described the gunman as “an insane monster” who is “nuts” and crazy.” And at a White House briefing Thursday, the President again used the term “sicko.”

They quote  Ron Honberg, senior policy adviser with the National Alliance on Mental Illness:

“When it comes to mental health, language really matters. This is not about being politically correct. It’s about wanting to do everything we can to encourage people to get health treatment that works… Hearing language like this is a punch to the gut, particularly if we have a goal as a nation to increase access to mental health care. This is about the worst thing you can do.”

I guess the same doesn’t apply to CNN when talking about the President of these United States.

Since President Trump’s election CNN commentators have been questioning his mental health. They’ve gone so far as to quote doctors who have taken to arm-chair diagnosing the president without an exam.

In fact, they discussed his mental unfitness at length just recently on CNN’s Situation Room. MRC NewsBusters writes:

On Thursday, CNN’s The Situation Room spent over 20 minutes during its two-hour airtime peddling accusations by Democrats, a far-left Yale psychologist, and the hot takes of CNN partisans like Brian Stelter that President Trump was mentally ill and thus should be removed from office.

This topic has long been on CNN’s periphery, but this time it came on a flagship program following other discussions on at least three other CNN programs (CNN Newsroom with John Berman and Poppy HarlowCNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin, and The Lead with Jake Tapper).

After deducting commercials, more than one-fourth (25.5 percent) of the airtime of CNN’s Situation Room on Thursday was devoted to Trump’s mental health (roughly 20 minutes and 50 seconds out of a total of nearly 82 minutes of actual news coverage).

You can read the full article with details on the coverage at MRC NewsBusters.

CNN needs to get its story straight. If it’s harmful to talk publicly about someone’s mental health, then that would include the president. And just because he’s the president it doesn’t give them a pass. Publishing headlines like “Trump’s language on school shooter’s mental health could be harmful, experts say” serves to validate their obvious hypocrisy and perpetual anti-Trump agenda.

Dems politicizing the shooting or genuine concern?

soft targets, School Shooting, Democrat, Republican, politics
soft targets, School Shooting, Democrat, Republican, politics

Democrats continue their strategy of “let no crisis go to waste,” and the latest school shooting is no exception. Are they really just using these traumatized families and children’s for political props? If they really cared about making gun law reforms, they had 2 full years of control when President Obama was in charge. Why didn’t they change anything then?

Unfortunately, this is more political theater and opposition to Trump than actual concern as to how best to secure our children.

What rights will you surrender to stop the Russian troll Apocalypse?

DNC, Silent Protest, Bernie Sanders, Media
DNC, Silent Protest, Bernie Sanders, Media

After a year, even Trump haters are getting tired of hearing about “Russian collusion.” Face it, only true political aficionados pay attention when it’s mentioned on the news. Everyone else just tunes it out. There’s too much minutia to track and it seems like nothing is getting done. So why is this topic important? Because without surety that only American citizens are voting, and our campaigns are not being hijacked by foreigners, our entire political system is at risk. J.E. Dyer at Liberty Unyielding explains:

Astonishingly, the use of social media to promote political themes in the United States, for which a Washington, D.C. grand jury last week indicted 13 Russians, is now being compared – as an attack on America – to Pearl Harbor and 9/11.

I think most people are sensible enough to simply discredit this hyperventilation and move on.  But it’s important, before moving on, to register a couple of points about the Russian activity.

Each one starts with the reality that it is a serious matter, to know that Russia is trying to stoke political divisions among Americans.

Russia has been attempting to do that for an almost-uninterrupted period of 100 years now.

That’s basically one of the important points to remember.  If each new instance of it is a catastrophe on the order of the attack on Pearl Harbor, or the felling of the Twin Towers, what does that make the last one?  Because the Russian attacks on our national psyche, mounted through invidious political sloganeering and the exploitation of our own commitments to freedom of speech and thought, have been relentless for most of the last ten decades.

And:

The very last thing we should do is let the “Internet trolls” operation be invoked as a crisis that necessitates Americans giving up our own rights, liberties, and constitutional principles.

Are doctors prescribing the smoking gun to school shooters?!

smoking gun
smoking gun

Dr. Bridget Melson was on the show last week stressing the importance of parents being parents (not your child’s friend), less electronics, more face time, and God. With the Parkland school shooting still fresh in all our minds, she delves into another aspect of our culture that needs to be addressed… mind altering drugs. Not illegal drugs. Those drugs that too many doctors are prescribing all too often to kids at younger and younger ages. What are we doing?!?!

She writes:

Take a look at some hard facts (and a small sample of my research) that have been checked and cross checked and let me show you some sobering statistics (taken from “The Spiral Notebook…” Singular, 238) and then I will show you how and why this all can be prevented:

Shooter(s)    ~~  Drugs prescribed:

Dylan Klebold  and Eric Harris age—Columbine Shooting   ~~   Zoloft then Luvox

Jeff Weise—Killed family members, 10 students, wounded 12    ~~ Prozac

Cory Baadsgaard—held 23 classmates hostage with a rifle   ~~ Paxil

Chris Fetters age 13—killed family  members   ~~ Prozac

Christopher Pittman age 12—killed family members  ~~ Zoloft

Kip Kingle—shot parents, classmates, injured 22  ~~ Prozac

Jason Hoffman—shot classmates  ~~  Effexor

Elizabeth Bush—school shooting   ~~  Paxil

Luke Woodham—killed family and students  ~~ Prozac

And this is only the tip of the proverbial psychotropic iceberg.

Weinsteining: Liberal college refuses to remove class celebrating Woody Allen

Woody Allen
Woody Allen

Let me get this straight… Liberal college campuses refuse to let people like Ben Shapiro speak. But they still have, and actually REFUSE to remove, classes celebrating the talent of someone like Woody Allen. Even in this hyper-charged, Weinsteining-Era exposing Hollywood’s sexual assault coverups.

Campus Reform reports:

The University of California, San Diego is refusing to cancel a course on “The Films of Woody Allen” despite a petition that has received tens of thousands of signatures.

In a statement last week, the Academic Senate pushed back against demands that the class be cancelled based on unproven sexual abuse allegations against the filmmaker, stressing the importance of academic freedom on campus.

“This, of course, raises serious issues concerning academic freedom, utterly independent of any specifics pertaining to allegations about Woody Allen.”   

“As many of you know, a public petition was initiated several weeks ago with the purpose of cancelling a current course on the films of Woody Allen, a staple elective in the Theatre and Dance Department,” the Academic Senate wrote. “This, of course, raises serious issues concerning academic freedom, utterly independent of any specifics pertaining to allegations about Woody Allen.”

CA Governor: Signs bill ensuring teachers & students are sitting ducks

Remember when local school districts could decide what was best for their students? When local representatives were actually able to REPRESENT their local constituency? Not in California! Five Cali school districts tried to do just that in a valiant effort to ensure the safety of their students and staff. Enter Governor Jerry Brown and his merry band of Liberals in Sacramento who know best about how to make teachers and students sitting ducks for a would-be shooter.

Over the weekend, when no one would notice, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill which outlaws teacher’s ability to shoot back if they come under fire at school. This is pure insanity: This is California… but I repeat myself.

Introduced by Democrat Assemblyman Kevin McCarty, Bill, AB 424 was rushed through on a Saturday after five California school districts decided to allow teachers or staff to have concealed carry permits. This of course would give them the ability and right to be armed on campus to defend themselves and students, should their be a Lakeland-style attack.

Not every mass shooting survivor attacks the NRA & 2nd Amendment

While everyone is screaming about gun control, gun rights, and how best to protect our children, there is a group of ADULTS who have already been through it. Maybe we ought to allow them to weigh in on this issue of school shootings. One Colorado legislator was a student at Columbine High School and a mass shooting survivor. And what does HE think we should do…

Not every school mass shooting survivor attacks the NRA and extolls disarmament. Some have matured and would like to stop schools from being tempting soft targets to armed sociopaths. In other words, they want to end schools as gun free zones which assure would-be killers that they will be able to shoot people without worrying about them shooting back.

Colorado House Minority Leader Patrick Neville survived the Columbine mass shooting and he wants people with concealed-carry permits to no longer be required to lock their firearms in their vehicles when they are entering a school.

Bill Clinton: Champion of armed guards in schools BEFORE gun control was the mantra

Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton

Say it isn’t so. Did then-President Bill Clinton really suggest we put armed guards in all of our schools? Well, the Columbine shooting was fresh in everyone’s mind. And no one EVER wanted to see that happen again. Clinton wanted to take drastic measures to protect our most precious assets… our children… with MORE GUNS!

The shooting at Parkland School was horrible. I have not met anyone who wasn’t deeply saddened by the massacre and searching for a solution to protect our kids from gun violence. And for you liberals screaming about the NRA you are wrong, the NRA is also searching for ways to protect our kids. I happen to believe we need to tighten background checks to prevent sociopaths like Nikolas Cruz from buying one gun (he bought ten). I also think we need to develop a better communication system between law enforcement agencies not only to prevent warnings such as the ones made about Cruz to fall through the cracks but to require more stringent background checks for people whose mother called the cops on them 20x. Finally, I believe we need to create a program to arm teachers like they do in Israel, or to put more than a single armed guard in schools.

Every time someone recommends armed guards in schools a liberal is there to call it stupid or pandering to the “gun lobby.” I wonder how they would feel if they knew the first president to suggest armed school guards. Because it was almost eighteen years ago then-president Bill Clinton, suggested putting armed cops (or other trained armed guards) in schools.

Constitutional Sheriff isn’t afraid of a “well regulated militia,” they use it to their benefit!

Cowboy, Firearm, Gun, Holster
Cowboy, Firearm, Gun, Holster

This is what a Constitutional Sheriff does. They proactively work to protect their citizens. And they aren’t afraid of a “well regulated militia.” They use it to their benefit! If only California sheriffs had the wisdom and foresight to do what this Ohio sheriff just did, preparing teachers as best he can for the day they pray NEVER happens. No one wants to fight a war. But if the war comes to you, you best know how to fight AND WIN!

Butler County, Ohio, Sheriff Richard K. Jones offered free concealed carry training for 50 teachers and 250 teachers responded within 24 hours.

Breitbart News reported that Jones began advertising the free training on Sunday and the immediate response was 50 emails within 20 minutes:

On February 20 Fox 91 reported the response had jumped to 250 teachers who wanted training. Jones reveled in the opportunity to instruct them, saying, “We have 250 and growing fast. We will start training fast, next week.”

He stressed that he wants teachers to understand what they can do with a gun if an armed attacker enters the classroom. And while he cannot delegate the authority for teachers to carry on a given campus–that is a school board decision–Jones said he wants the teachers to be ready if their school board so chooses.

Do gun free zones work?

On the heels of the shooting in Fort Lauderdale that took the lives of five people, a new report has surfaced with some breathtaking statistics about where mass shootings take place.

According to the Crime Prevention Research Center, from the 1950’s through July 10th of 2016, 98.4 percent of mass shootings have occurred on gun-free zones, with just 1.6 percent occurring where citizens are allowed to have firearms with them.

The research was actually updated from a previous figure in response to an article written by the gun-control advocacy group Everytown.org, which attempted to dismiss the CPRC’s research, saying “the gun lobby’s claims that so-called “gun-free zones” endanger Americans are inconsistent with evidence.” The CPRC says that Everytown.org used both incomplete information, and used criteria that falls outside of what the FBI considers as qualifications for mass shootings.

The FBI definition of mass public shootings excludes “shootings that resulted from gang or drug violence” or that were part of some other crime.  The FBI also defines “public” places as “includ[ing] commercial areas (divided into malls, businesses open to pedestrian traffic, and businesses closed to pedestrian traffic), educational environments (divided into schools [pre-kindergarten through 12th grade] and IHEs), open spaces, government properties (divided into military and other government properties), houses of worship, and health care facilities.

The CPRC dismisses claims of “mass shootings” if they do not meet the FBI’s criteria, and gives an entire list of mass shootings that have occurred within the United States. It then debunks Everytown.org’s claims.

While the first part of the discussion here goes through each mass public shooting from 2009 to 2014 discussed in the Bloomberg report, further down in this post we have updated cases up through 2015 and the sources of older cases dating back to 1950.  At the end of the post we have a response to Everytown’s response to our post.  Using the data from 1950 through February 2016 has three mass public shootings in places where general citizens are allowed to have guns — that is just over 1 percent of the shootings over that period.

Did you hear that Lobster scream?

The Swiss are making it illegal to boil lobsters, claiming the classic cooking method is cruel because they can ‘feel pain’.

A new law due to take effect in March will ban chefs from throwing live lobsters into pots of boiling water, forcing them to ‘render them unconscious’ first.

Restaurants will instead have to electrocute them or temporarily stun them before stabbing them with a knife.

The new legislation is a world first, making Switzerland the only country to have such strict laws on lobster cooking.

It has been designed to uphold the part of the Swiss constitution on ‘animal dignity’.

New strict rules also mean cats have to have daily visual contact with other felines and hamsters have to be kept in pairs.

Switzerland’s changes come as Britain prepares to make similar amendments to their own animal welfare policy on lobsters.

Earlier this month UK Fisheries Minister George Eustice said the government was looking at bringing in a law that would mean crustaceans had to be either frozen to death or stunned.

Campaigners want ministers to change animal welfare laws to include decapod crustaceans for the first time because they say there is evidence they feel pain.

Mr Eustice yesterday said the government was considering amending the legislation. He told BBC Radio 5 Live: ‘There is a serious issue.

‘We know that among some of the larger crustaceans, such as lobsters, they do not feel conscious pain in the way that we do.

‘But there is some evidence that they have a nervous system that enables them to detect stress and this is something that we ought to be considering.

‘The RSPCA has issued some very good guidance on the correct way to kill a lobster. You can either gradually freeze them, in which case they literally lull into unconsciousness.
