Man Arrested for Threat to AOC – ‘My Employer Would Load the Gun for Me.’ Violence Has No Place in the American Conversation

On Friday, a man from Toledo was charged with launching threats against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He’d been stockpiling ammunition, and a Facebook post stated the 29-year-old freshman congresswoman “should be shot.”

That’s definitely a good way to get some negative attention.

According to the Toledo Blade, the 41-year-old was also charged with “being a felon in possession of a firearm, being a fugitive in possession of a firearm, and making interstate threats.”

He could get 25 years in prison — that’s 10 years each for two firearms charges and a 5-year sentence for the threat.

On July 23rd, Capitol Police were provided with a screenshot from social media:

“She should be shot. Can’t fire me, my employer would load the gun for me.”

In a phone call, the man told the CP he had guns and always carried them concealed. He also confirmed “he was very proud of that post he made,” as per the filed complaint.

This isn’t AOC’s first time to be singled out.

As reported by The Daily Wire:

She was previously included on a hit list compiled by a self-proclaimed white nationalist…who was arrested in February. Hasson had read the manifesto of Anders Behring Breivik, a right-wing terrorist who murdered 77 people in Norway in 2011. The former U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant also included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), whom he referred to as “Sen blumen jew,” on the list.

Of course, politicians on both sides of the aisle are the recipient of disdain from coast to coast, and Republicans have been doxxed, harassed, threatened…and in 2017, a left-wing nutjob attacked a D.C. softball game. Among four shot, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was critically injured.

The media haven’t seemed too interested in that event, but The New York Times did manage the August 5th op-ed “Conservatism Has a Violence Problem,” which included the quote “Right-wing extremist violence is our biggest threat” by Anti-Defamation League National Director Jonathan Greenblatt.

Nevermind the Dayton massacre, as covered by RedState’s Bonchie: “NEW: The Dayton Shooter Was A Satanist, Leftist-Socialist, And Bernie/Warren Fan, Supported Antifa.”

Of course, evil is evil, whether red or blue. And talk of dastardly deeds is bad for the country.

Civility is an American value, and it’s one we must maintain. Our liberty came, at a time, through armed revolution. But in order to keep it, we must lay down our weapons of vitriol and violence. Otherwise, the bad guys win.

Wages Will Go Up When Illegal Aliens Are Deported.

Wages Will Go Up When Illegal Aliens Are Deported.

The Mississippi Clarion Ledger reports that Koch Foods is holding a job fair this coming Monday in hopes of replacing workers caught up in this past week’s ICE raids.

From the article

Koch Foods announced on Facebook that the company will host a job fair on Monday after many of its workers at its two Mississippi plants were swept up in an immigration raid Wednesday.

The raids by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement targeted small towns in Mississippi with a workforce made up largely of Latino immigrants. Koch Foods Inc. processing plants in Pelahatchie and Morton were raided as well as PH Food in Morton, Pearl River Foods’ plant in Carthage and Peco Foods Inc. plants in Canton, Bay Springs and Sebastopol.

This is a good thing and will have two salutary effects on the economy in Koch plant locales. First of all, for at least some period of time, these plants will be 100% staffed by legal resident aliens, legal guest workers or American citizens.

Koch Foods also stated that it is committed to the use of E-Verify

In a press release, Koch Foods said they are cooperating with the government’s ongoing investigation and they are diligent about their compliance with state and federal employment eligibility laws. They use the federal government database E-Verify to screen new hires.

A continued commitment to the use of E-verify, if actually followed through on should stop this sort of thing in the future at Koch facilities. Though I must wonder, if they claim to already be using E-Verify, how come so many illegals were working there?

The secondary effect here, is going to be an increase in wages at those facilities, at least for the new hires. Fast replacement in a job market such as we have now, statistically full employment, means that Koch Foods is going to have to throw some money at this problem…and fast. That will be the only way to quickly hire workers for jobs such as these in our tight labor market, is to pay these folks more than they have been.

This is a prime example of how multiple avenues of approach, fewer regulations, tax relief and immigration enforcement can not only result in more Americans being employed, but also, higher wages that come along with that employment.

Many Prominent Names Revealed After 2,000 Documents In Jeffrey Epstein Case Are Unsealed

(AP Photo/Palm Beach Post, Uma Sanghvi, File)/Palm Beach Post via AP)

 

I doubt too many people will be lining up to pay their respects to accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein who reportedly hanged himself on Friday night in his jail cell. My colleague, T. LaDuke, posted earlier about Epstein’s death here.

If he hadn’t allegedly tried to hang himself two weeks ago, one may have thought his decision to commit suicide last night may have had to do with the fact that over 2,000 documents were unsealed yesterday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. On July 18, I posted that those records were expected to be unsealed within days here.

At that time, one of the lawyers involved in the case told Vanity Fair that, “It’s going to be staggering, the amount of names. It’s going to be contagion numbers.”

Another said, “Nobody who was around Epstein a lot is going to have an easy time now. It’s all going to come out.”

The court records “include affidavits and depositions of key witnesses” stemming from a 2015 civil defamation lawsuit filed against both Epstein and his former girlfriend and ex-madam, Ghislane Maxwell, by Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

Giuffre alleges that Epstein and Maxwell “kept her as a “sex slave” in the early 2000s when she was underage.” According to Fox News, in one of the unsealed documents Giuffre claims “she was forced to have sex with former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell and ex-New Mexico governor and Clinton cabinet official Bill Richardson.”

Giuffre is currently 33.

Sen. Mitchell, now 85, told Fox “The allegation contained in the released documents is false. I have never met, spoken with or had any contact with Ms. Giuffre.”

However, a former Epstein employee, Juan Alessi, states in a sworn affidavit disputes the senator.

A spokesman for Richardson told Fox that the allegations are “completely false.”

Fox News reports:

Giuffre claimed in a May 2016 deposition to have been trafficked to have sex with and provide erotic massages to powerful politicians, foreign leaders and well-heeled businessmen. In ordering the documents released, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit also warned that the allegations contained within them are not necessarily proven.

Giuffre alleged in her own deposition that she was allegedly forced to have sex with Richardson, 71, Britain’s Prince Andrew, Hedge Fund manager Glenn Dubin, American scientist Marvin Minsky, “another prince,” “a large hotel chain owner,” Stephen Kauffman, and model scout Jean Luc Brunell.

All of those implicated so far have denied their involvement.

A spokesman for Dubin told Fox, “Glenn and Eva Dubin are outraged by the allegations in the unsealed court records, which are demonstrably false and defamatory.”

According to the documents, “Giuffre allegedly had sexual relations with Prince Andrew in three separate locations—Maxwell’s London apartment, New York, and Epstein’s private island, Little St. James, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.”

Also included in the documents are flight logs including names of passengers aboard the private jet.

The records are unsealed. I am not a lawyer, so I don’t know what effect, if any, Epstein’s death will have on their status. But I would imagine reporters poured over the documents quite thoroughly on Friday.

Biden Says There Are “At Least Three” Genders, Confuses Everyone

This guy is a walking gaffe machine.

Fresh off telling a crowd that “poor kids are just as smart as white kids,” Joe Biden got cornered by a question about how many genders there are. To normal people, this would be a very easy answer. To Democrats in 2019, it’s a question with no real right answers. No matter what you say, you are guaranteed to offend someone who claims to be something that doesn’t actually exist.

Most Democrats know the lingo and will say that gender is a “spectrum.” That’s a-scientific nonsense, but it at least allows them to skirt the issue by including every possible “identity.”

Joe Biden is Joe Biden though, so that means he was bound to give the worst possible answer.

Per The Federalist.

In the video, the staffer asks Biden, “How many genders are there?”

“There are at least three,” Biden responds.

“What are they?” the staffer asks.

“Don’t play games with me, kids,” Biden responds.

Biden shook someone’s hand, then allegedly grabbed the staffer’s arm, while saying, “By the way, the first one to come out for marriage was me.”

So what’s the third gender? Biden gets flustered and refuses to answer, telling the student to “not play games with him.” To the social justice left, this stuff is not a “game” and not being able to answer that question is going to get him in a lot of trouble with that crowd, many of which believe there are infinite numbers of genders or at the very least that there are dozens of them.

Also, why is he grabbing a women by the arm to brag about how he was “first” to come out for “marriage?” Obviously, he’s talking about gay marriage, but he was hardly the first and given his past brushes with getting too handsy with women, grabbing someone like that is a pretty dumb move.

Back the question itself, it was a good one. Every single 2020 Democrat should be made to tell us how many genders they think exist. It will expose most of them for having no real answer.

Joe Biden’s Campaign Spokesman Gets Caught Manufacturing a Trump Quote To Cover a Joe Biden Lie

Westlake Legal Group befuddled-biden-620x317 Joe Biden’s Campaign Spokesman Gets Caught Manufacturing a Trump Quote To Cover a Joe Biden Lie Politics Joel Pollack Joe Biden Iowa Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats charlottesville Breitbart bill russo big lie Allow Media Exception

Yesterday, Joe Biden, who, charitably, is not at the peak of his mental powers right now (see Joe Biden Tells Supporters Poor Kids Are As Bright And Talented As White Kids and Joe Biden’s Hypocrisy About His Own Troubling History of White Supremacy Resurfaces) was on the hustings at the Iowa State Fair.

At some point, while accusing President Trump of riling up white supremacists, Joe Biden repeated a calumny that has become a staple his campaign. He claimed that President Trump, in the aftermath of Charlottesville, said the white supremacists marching were “fine people.” Joel Pollak, host of “Breitbart News Tonight” on Sirius XM radio, confronted Biden and accused him of misquoting Trump. Biden blew out his hairplugs

BTW, my lord, Biden looks ancient and decrepit.

And many of the sunflower left (a close friend of mine uses “sunflower” to describe people who barely have enough brainpower to move their heads in the direction of the sun) thought this was great.

The assclown whose sad duty it is to tell lies to cover Biden’s mental deficiencies, some guy named Bill Russo, responded to the allegation that Biden was lying with, you guessed it, a lie. He sent a doctored transcript.

Think about this. He sent a doctored transcript, in writing, to a news organization to prove his point.

The whole story of what Trump said has been covered over and over and over. And much like the Russian collusion hoax can’t be snuffed out by facts, neither can this lie. This is the actual transcript:

TRUMP: Excuse me, excuse me. (inaudible) themselves (inaudible) and you have some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. You had people in that group — excuse me, excuse me — I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.

(CROSSTALK)

QUESTION: George Washington and Robert E. Lee are not the same (inaudible)…

(CROSSTALK)

TRUMP: George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So, will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down — excuse me — are we going to take down — are we going to take down statues to George Washington?

(CROSSTALK)

TRUMP: How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him?

(CROSSTALK)

TRUMP: OK. Good. Are we going to take down the statue? Because he was a major slave owner. Now, are we going to take down his statue? So you know what? It’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture. And you had people, and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. OK? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people, but you also had troublemakers and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats. You’ve got — you had a lot of bad — you had a lot of bad people in the other group…

The claim made by Joe Biden is a lie. It is understandable because Biden has always been a fabulist an now he’s not firing on all four cylinders. The guy is obviously well past his “use by” date. So the polite thing to do is to nod and keep a straight face as he spins his yarns.

His campaign manager is simply an egregious liar. He went to the trouble of either doctoring a transcript or having a staffer doctor one and then he thought he was so smart that no one else would bother to actually read it. That they’d just look at his claim on Twitter and say, “oh, you’re right.”

The fortunate thing for the country is that Biden and this clown will never get anywhere near the White House. The unfortunate thing is that Biden will not be around in the general election to get beaten like a rented mule.

The 10 Stages of Genocide: A Social Media Marvel Provides a Window into America’s Growing Mental Disorder

Has the country gone insane? Judging by social media entries, concerning a portion, it’s not too difficult to imagine the answer being Yes.

As the election neared in 2016, absurd statements by those fighting to preserve Democratic power increasingly polluted the airwaves. The dumbest, most extreme claims were flung, like a the contents of a dirty diaper steadied by a stretched-to-capacity slingshot.

SPLAT!

It was everywhere.

The result, in part, was alarmists on Facebook and elsewhere hammering the bell:

“If Donald Trump is elected, black people will be hanging from trees on the White House lawn!”

That was an actual post.

People were told Trump was essentially a reproductive miracle: Somehow, Hitler and Lucifer had engaged in sexual congress. And in 1946, out of one of their vaginas, out hatched a bouncing baby boy.

What many, many millennials didn’t know, however, was that — despite the media’s claims — Donald Trump wasn’t a reality TV star who’d run for President; he was America’s most famed and embraced billionaire, whose notoriety as a successful mogul had resulted in NBC asking him to appear on its show. Despite allegations, he wasn’t a failed businessman (people have actually said this); he’d taken a small fortune and created a worldwide empire. Despite charges of him being the Angel of Death, he’d been — for years — loved by Hollywood and Democrats and praised in rap songs.

Despite reality, however, the lobbed missive to morons was clear: Terror is upon us.

The same had happened, though to a much lesser degree, with George W. Bush. So far as I can tell, that’s when the plummet of not only ignorance, but breathtaking immaturity began.

During that era, to many of those evidently spoiled by the time in which they lived, the high stakes of life were completely lost. Seemingly gone was any concept of actual evil, suffering, or persecution.

Hatchbacks donned bumper stickers with Bush wearing horns. T-shirts portrayed W. as Hitler.

And for clueless Saviors of the Cities, reason was not an option.

“George Bush is Adolf!”

“George W. Bush is nothing like Adolf Hitler. You’re not understanding what Hitler did. Hitler murdered people.”

“George Bush murders people!”

“No, dummy. You’re saying that because he supports military action in the Middle East, and in battle, people are killed. But I mean Hitler literally ordered the deaths of people.”

“George Bush orders the deaths of people!”

“No, dummy. You’re saying he endorses policies you’ve heard negatively affect the poor, which you believe results in casualties down the line. But I’m saying that Hitler quite literally gave the order for specific groups of people to be murdered en masse.”

“George Bush gives the order for specific groups to be murdered en masse!”

“No, dummy. You’re saying he has political leanings that — as you understand it — disadvantage the lower class, which is comprised by a considerable percentage of racial minorities. But I’m saying that Hitler, in the most direct manner possible, spoke to his henchmen and gave the Go-Ahead for people to be rounded up and slaughtered.”

“George Bush speaks to his henchmen and gives the Go-Ahead for people to be rounded up and slaughtered!”

“No, dummy. You’re talking about your views on his Cabinet and prison reform. But Hitler chose to literally have millions of people killed simply because of their genetic background.”

“George Bush chooses to literally have millions of people killed simply because–”

“Ooooookay. Uncle uncle uncle!”

They couldn’t grasp the higher stakes. The forcefield of fierce immaturity is a mighty foe indeed.

And the same is true today.

There currently exists a group of people who are living out, in their imaginations, the worst the world has to offer.

Some in the media are dishing out idiotic ideas, and the craziest among us are swallowing them like so many flies.

RIBBIT!

Consider a post making the rounds on social media as of late:

10 Stages of Genocide

1. Classification: People are divided into “us and them.”
2. Symbolization: People are forced to identify themselves.
3. Discrimination: People begin to face systematic discrimination.
4. Dehumanization: People equated with animals, vermin, or diseases.
5. Organization: The government creates special groups (police/military) to enforce the policies.
6. Polarization: The government broadcasts propaganda to turn the populace against the group.
7. Preparation: Official action to remove/relocate people begins.
8. Persecution: Beginning of murders, theft of property, trial massacres.
9. Extermination: Wholesale elimination of the group. It is “extermination” and not murder because the people are not considered human.
10. Denial: The government denies that it has committed any crime.

Incredibly, the meme draws an arrow between Preparation and Persecution with the note “You are here.”

Literally none of those things have happened. But the far Left have tried to convince people otherwise. In fact, with regard to some of their most incendiary claims, the federal actions at issue were engaged by Obama. In some cases, they were begun under Barack.

But goobers gotta goob.

Apparently, the sharers of such hysteria aren’t familiar with the real History of the United States. Witness:



What’s more, not only has nothing on the list occurred, but it can’t — because America doesn’t have a “Government” — not in the way the meme references.

We have a system of checks and balances provided by three separate branches, comprised by people who all disagree with one another. And the Executive Branch has a 2-term lmit.

The whole idea of the meme is an ode to psychosis. Yet, here we are.

We’re livin’ in the Age of the Slingshot.

Or slingsh*t.

SPLAT!!!!

It’s Starting: Targets of Rep. Joaquin Castro’s Doxxing Efforts Receive Harassing Phone Calls and Threats

Joaquin Castro’s Doxxing Efforts Receive Harassing Phone Calls and Threats Texas Social Media Politics North Carolina Julian Castro Joaquin Castro Front Page Stories Front Page First Amendment Featured Story Featured Post Doxxing democrats Culture Congress Campaigns Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections 2020

In the aftermath of Rep. Joaquin Castro’s (D-TX) decision to post the private information of Trump donors in his Congressional district who donated the maximum amount to President Trump’s reelection campaign, he has pushed back on claims from his Republican critics who said the list puts people in danger of harassment and violence:

In spite of Castro saying his list wasn’t intended to put anyone in danger, he and his supporters have continued to try and class Twitter up by equating Trump backers to mass murderers:

Fortunately, some are weathering the storm. But as even a 5-year-old could have predicted, the harassing phone calls and threats have started to roll in for some of Castro’s donor targets.

Listen to the vicious, threatening voice mail left for one woman who was on Castro’s list:

Per the New York Times, the owner of Precision Pipe Rentals has also been harassed:

For many businesses, a sudden deluge of phone calls might signal an influx of new customers. But most of the 25 calls Justin Herricks received before noon on Thursday were from people who wanted to tell him he was a white supremacist for donating money to President Trump.

“I’ve had people say, ‘Hey, we were going to use you for business, but we found out you’re a racist,’” Mr. Herricks, the owner of Precision Pipe Rentals, an oil and gas services company in San Antonio, said in an interview. “‘We hope that you burn in hell and your business will go with you.’”

And another man who was wrongly outed has had to advise his family members to “stay close to home”:

Harper Huddleston said on “Fox & Friends” that his name appeared on Castro’s list instead of the name of his retired father, who contributed to the Trump campaign. He said the mix-up was because they share the same first name, but have different middle names, though his father does not go by the name Harper.

Huddleston said he supports Trump and has contributed in the past to the mayoral campaign of Castro’s brother, Julian, who is now running for president. He said he was glad to have received the negative attention instead of his father, but explained that he was forced to go over emergency plans with his wife and three children.

“We convened together as a family and talked about situational awareness, exit strategy, avoiding and exiting conflict, talked about staying low and close to home and just being at our very highest senses,” said Huddleston.

Castro, who is the chairman of his brother Julián’s presidential campaign, absurdly told MSNBC earlier this week that his intention was not for any harm to come to anyone who was on the list:

“Congressman, as you look at this list — and you even put their addresses out there. It’s easy to find them,” [co-host Willie] Geist said. “These people are undoubtedly already being harassed online or perhaps face to face in some cases, they could be.”

“What do you say to those people this morning when you say, ‘I made a campaign donation and now I’m going to be harassed? I’m going to have people protesting outside my business or perhaps even my home?’ What do you say to them? Do you want them to repent for their support of President Trump or what do you want from them?”

Castro said he does not want anyone “harassed or targeted” over the donations, but Geist quickly said “they will be because you put their names in public.”

“That was not my intention,” Castro replied. “These things are public. No, what I want is for people to think twice about supporting a guy who is fueling hate in this country.”

He can deny it all he wants to, but he knows exactly what he’s doing. In fact, after his stunt on Monday, it was revealed that some of the people on the list had previously donated to past political campaigns of both Castro brothers, suggesting Joaquin Castro had a revenge motivation for publishing the list.

Castro’s despicable doxxing tactics have inspired liberals in other parts of the country to do their part as well, including in Michigan and here in North Carolina. Unfortunately, this isn’t going to be over anytime soon.

Have you heard of Universal’s upcoming film The Hunt?

Here’s how Fox News sums it up:

The Hunt, which initially was going to be titled Red State vs. Blue State, is billed as a satire that follows wealthy thrill-seekers as they take a private jet to a five-star resort, where they embark on a “deeply rewarding” expedition that involves hunting down and killing “deplorables,” per The Hollywood Reporter.

THR offers a few lines from the screenplay:

“Did anyone see what our ratf***er-in-chief just did?” one character asks early in the screenplay for The Hunt, a Universal Pictures thriller set to open Sept. 27. Another responds: “At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”

Here’s a bit more about the flick:

The Hunt stars Betty Gilpin from GLOW and Hilary Swank, representing opposite sides of the political divide. It features guns blazing along with other ultra-violent killings as the elites pick off their prey. The script from (Lost co-creator and showrunner) Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse reviewed by The Hollywood Reporter revolves around third-rail political themes.

Ready to buy your advance tickets?

As much as they’re presumably excited about the new release, Universal’s had some second thoughts since last weekend’s deadly mass shootings (here, here, here, here, and here):

In the wake of a trio of deadly massacres, the studio is evaluating its strategy for the R-rated Blumhouse satire in which elites stalk “deplorables.”

A bit of the negative Twitter response:

On Friday, the rat– I mean, President Trump — chimed in on the controversy, following several ads for the coastal-elites-hunting-MAGA-supporters-like-wild-animals extravaganza being pulled. His message? Hollywood is the racist blight:

“Liberal Hollywood is Racist at the highest level, and with great Anger and Hate! They like to call themselves ‘Elite,’ but they are not Elite. In fact, it is often the people that they so strongly oppose that are actually the Elite. The movie coming out is made in order to inflame and cause chaos. They create their own violence, and then try to blame others. They are the true Racists, and are very bad for our Country!”

Strong words. And yet, not nearly as harsh as those heaped upon the President routinely by those in left-wing power.

But is all the conservative backlash rightful? Watch the trailer and tell me: Who appear to be the villains?



I love movies; they’re one of my favorite things. But it’s not hard to imagine that a story of Republicans and Democrats killing each other may not make a positive contribution to the current climate. It’s not incumbent upon celluloid to save the world, but was this project a good idea? What will the impact be?

I want to hear from you. Let us all know your thoughts.

As it turns out, you just cannot keep Texans away from good BBQ.

On Monday, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX-20) created a firestorm among Republicans after doxxing private citizens in his Congressional district who made the maximum donation to President Trump’s reelection campaign.

Castro then made the results public on his Twitter feed, which instantly made the people on the list targets for harassment and violence. In spite of the intense wave of criticism he has received, Castro, who is the chairman of his brother Julián Castro‘s presidential campaign, tried to justify his actions by saying in so many words that the people who are “funding white supremacy” need to be outed.

The information included the names of the donors and their places of employment/businesses they owned. One of the Texans Castro doxxed was Balous Miller, who owns San Antonio’s Bill Miller Bar-B-Q chain.

While hypocritical concern troll leftists have vowed to boycott Miller’s restaurants, conservatives started lining up in full force to support them, including Gov. Greg Abbott. He posted these pictures to his Twitter feed Tuesday night:

Since that time, other Twitter users have posted photos of the their visits or long drive thru lines at local locations:

It looks to me like the threatened Miller BBQ boycotts, like the Chick-fil-A boycotts, have turned out to be a big ol’ bucket of FAIL.

There are more than 70 Bill Miller Bar-B-Q locations in Texas. To find one near you, click here.

Andrew Cuomo’s Gun Control Proposal Even Scares the Left

Everyone has to get in on the action. Or, in the immortal words of Rahm Emanuel, never let a good crisis go to waste. Last weekends we had two mass shootings. We’re still talking about the one in El Paso because the media can claim that this one was motivated by President Trump’s immigration enforcement rhetoric. The one in Dayton is slipping to dim memory status because the shooter apparently thought he was an Antifa enforcer or something and that clutters up the narrative. As with any of these tragic events, there is a demand to do something and do it right now. Never mind that the something makes no sense or might even be counterproductive. The important thing is to do something. The left, completely understandably, overreaches and always tries to use a tragedy to advance a policy agenda that has zero to do with the actual tragedy.

With that set up, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has clawed his way toward the limelight. I don’t know why we pay any attention to this guy. Cuomo seems to still see himself as a future resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue but the sad truth is that were he not ruling a Democrat ghetto, he’d not get renominated much less reelected as governor. But he’s part of a Democrat “dynasty” and so we soldier on.

Most of this is tried and true pap. Where Cuomo breaks new ground, at least as far as a I can tell, is in pushing to establish a national mental health database. Think of it. A database containing extremely sensitive and personal information that the federal government has no need to know in the hands of people that let the Chinese make off with the security background investigation data, fingerprints, and personnel records of nearly 22 million federal employees. What ever could go wrong?

Beyond the possibility of compromise and 100% certainty that some future equivalent of the Obama regime would leak it to trash opponents,this would discourage many, many people from seeking mental health treatment because they would be well aware of how that information could be misused by any government.

But even the left isn’t crazy about this database:

(he’s a pro-confiscation person so you understand his point of view)

I’m nearly tempted to send Cuomo a campaign contribution and bouquet (no homo) if I thought it would encourage him to keep generating these ideas. In fact, it would be great if President Trump would grab Cuomo’s plan and get the Democrats all on record voting on it.
