In Stunning Case of TDS, YouTuber Purchases Town and Renames It “Gay Hell” to Protest Trump

People have done some very odd things while suffering from horrible and pronounced cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

From coming together across the nation scream at the sky to declaring they’d prefer actual Nazis to him, President Donald Trump has inspired some insanely weird behavior from people. With what looks like five more years of his Presidency on the docket, it’s hard to imagine how much further people will go in order to express their newly found disorder.

Especially after one YouTuber literally purchased a town and changed its name in order to protest Trump.

According to NBC News, Elijah Daniel was upset after Trump refused to fly the LGBT flag above American embassies during Pride Month. In reaction, Daniel went out and purchased the tiny five-acre town of Hell, Michigan. He then renamed it “Gay Hell,” because that’ll show him:

He said it is an act of protest against the Trump administration’s recent rejection of requests from U.S. embassies to fly the rainbow flag, a symbol of gay pride, during the month of June in celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month.

The town is about 15 miles northwest of Ann Arbor and is believed to have a population of about 70 people.

“Ahead of pride month Trump’s administration put a ban on embassy’s flying pride flags,” Daniel tweeted. “So as of today, I am now the owner of Hell, Michigan. I bought the whole town. And my first act as owner, I have renamed my town to Gay Hell, MI. The only flags allowed to fly are pride.”

In fairness, Daniel said this is more of a funny way of trying to get his 500,000 strong audience of primarily 16 to 24-year-olds to get more involved in politics, with the hopeful goal of getting more people to visit Michigan.

It’s not being disclosed how much Daniel purchased the town for but according to NBC News, the commercial plot that was Hell was on the market for $900,000 back in 2016.

This isn’t the first time Daniel took over leadership of Hell either:

In August 2017, he paid $100 to become the mayor of Hell for a day, banned heterosexuality and was then impeached. He said his desire to become mayor was a joke in response to President Donald Trump’s restriction on travel to the United States from a handful of Muslim countries.

Sometimes, when I’m angry at someone, I too purchase towns and change the name to something that insults the person I’m angry with. People say I’m going a bit far, but I just tell them that how I act out due to my disorder is my business…and the business of the people whose town I just bought.

Brian Stelter Punches Down on One America News Network to Cover Up Complete Ratings Collapse at CNN

Westlake Legal Group Brian-Stelter-620x333 Brian Stelter Punches Down on One America News Network to Cover Up Complete Ratings Collapse at CNN Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

In highlighting a small-scale network’s numbers CNN attempts to make its own shrinking audience look bigger by comparison

It is one of the reliable sources of comedy in our political environment these days: Donald Trump will say something, or Tweet a message, and the press will overreact. It seems most of the time they are unaware of the blatant effort he makes to prod them, and in the process they manage to embarrass themselves. This latest example has Trump possibly unintentionally getting CNN’s self-anointed media Hall Monitor to wade into a ratings quagmire.

In recent weeks the President has become an avid cheerleader for the One America News Network. This conservative-leaning news channel has been the recipient of a number of tweets heralding the channel’s growth.

This did not sit well with CNN’s media Corgi, Brian Stelter. He launched into a supposedly corrective rant, trying vainly to point out that what Trump was saying was inaccurate, and to minimize the impact and reach of the President’s new pet network.

This is where the comedy gold exists with those overcome with TDS. The desire to rush out and refute something said by the President should lead these media professionals to invoke a maxim of self-preservation: DON’T TWEET ANGRY! How this has not been engraved in the facade behind the reception area and outlined in neon with flashing border light strings is a mystery. But Stelter would be mindful to heed this rule.

How he managed to get so enraged as to not understand the folly of his bringing up ratings while his network is gradually but continuous slipping below the surface is wonderment. CNN has just posted ratings that are gaudily miserable.

Metrics from the first week of June, against the same week one year prior, shows CNN has seen a massive segment of its viewing audience disappear. Since 2018 the primetime ratings have dropped -33%. Worse than losing one-third of their viewers, in the age group of 25-54 year olds the drop in total-day has been -45%, and in primetime it is staggering, as more than half are now gone. They have lost -55%.! So yea, Brian — maybe not mentioning broadcast figures would serve you better.

Yet in his desire to supposedly correct the President on this subject Brian manages to butcher the facts.

Even while providing the quote from Donald Trump he manages to get it wrong. The President did not say they had a massive viewership, he said they were experiencing a “big ratings jump”, that is, they were experiencing some notable growth. Brian, in his zeal to make a point, manages to step on his share of rakes.

Look at his mentioning of “metered markets”, in order to draw comparisons to his CNN audience. OANN has not been in the marketplace for decades, as has Brian’s outlet, but there is another difference that he is choosing not to include here. OANN is not carried on all major cable providers, so the audience outreach is not at all equal. For example, Comcast refuses to carry OANN on its vast home cable network. Meanwhile, CNN enjoys near total market saturation.

CNN is all but required to be included in even the most basic of channel packages. This gives the channel a market penetration that is close to 95% of cable subscribers. This places CNN, by its own measurements, into nearly 90 million homes.

This means that is attracting far below 1% of cable households in the ratings. Yet Brian Stelter tries to draw a comparative with One America News Network, as it is shut out of many major cable markets while his own home outlet is essentially a mandatory inclusion in all cable accounts. Hope that bully-market helps him to sleep better as the nightmarish numbers continue to swirl in his dreams.

State Dept. Says Hillary Email Server Had at Least 30 Security Breaches

Westlake Legal Group aeeba3be-e031-4ee1-aedd-1be078c91e52 State Dept. Says Hillary Email Server Had at Least 30 Security Breaches Whitewash State Department Senate Security Violation Security Breach Relevant Politics Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story exposure Email server democrats corruption Chuck Grassley But Her Emails

But her emails, right? Yeah, but her emails is right. It’s not the public’s fault that so much of this was kept hidden for so long and that it’s just now starting to trickle out.

Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server made news again yesterday after a letter sent to Sen. Chuck Grassley was released. In it, the State Department outlined that at least 30 security breaches took place during its operation.

In a letter to Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, a State Department official said that at least 15 State Department employees were responsible for 23 violations and seven security infractions related to Clinton’s server.

The FBI investigated whether Clinton mishandled classified information by sending and receiving classified emails on a private server that she kept at her residence in New York. The FBI found that Clinton was “extremely careless” in using the server, but ultimately decided not to recommend that she be charged with a crime.

The State Department continued its internal review of the Clinton server after the FBI ended its investigation, according to the letter to Grassley. Clinton’s State Department aides, including Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, were aware that she exclusively used the server. Clinton and her aides exchanged thousands of classified emails while she was in office, including more than two dozen that were found to have top-secret information.

This is an ongoing review and State finds it probable that many more violations will be discovered. Grassley had made the request for the names of those who were behind the different violations.

Laws are for the little people though, so Hillary and her associates, who clearly knew about and intended to propagate the scheme that took place, have faced no consequences for their actions. I’m not even sure any of them have lost their security clearances.

Meanwhile, people from less protected classes have managed to find themselves in jail over far less and even accidental mishandling of classified information.

While this story has certainly aged at this point, it’s no less relevant today. The stench of corruption and backroom dealing within our bureaucracies has profoundly hurt the reputation of the FBI and DOJ. It’s still an eye-opening experience to go read the list of just how many unusual, illogical actions were taken to cover for Hillary throughout the ordeal.

Giving immunity deals to people with nothing to offer. Drafting early exoneration letters before an interview had even taken place. Letting Clinton’s co-conspirators function as her lawyers at the same time. Allowing the destruction of evidence for no logical reason. The list goes on and on.

While justice won’t ever be done, this letter to Grassley does add yet another piece of evidence into the public sphere that proves just how far the corruption went. Any normal person who had overseen so many violations while committing a clearly illegal act would have been prosecuted. Hillary Clinton isn’t a normal person though and that’s essentially the lesson that’s been taught here, much to the detriment of our institutions.

Liz Cheney Calls Out AOC After Her Stunningly Ignorant Claim Trump is “Running Concentration Camps” on the Border

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY-14) is facing backlash today after remarks she made during an Instagram Live video Monday night in which she declared that Trump is a “fascist authoritarian” who is “running concentration camps” on our southern border.

The Hill reports:

The freshman lawmaker also said President Trump is a fascist, underscoring her argument that what is happening in the United States has parallels to Nazi Germany and other fascist states.

“The U.S. is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are,” the freshman lawmaker said. “If that doesn’t bother you … I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘never again’ means something.

“The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the ‘Home of the Free’ is extraordinarily disturbing, and we need to do something about it,” she added.

[…..]

Ocasio-Cortez labeled the situation in the U.S. as “a crisis” over whether “America will remain America … or if we are losing to an authoritarian and fascist presidency.”

“I don’t use those words lightly. I don’t use those words to just throw bombs. I use that word because that is what an administration that creates concentration camps is,” she said. “A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist, and it’s very difficult to say that.”

Watch video of her remarks below:

What Ocasio-Cortez said sounds kinda like the incitement she routinely accuses her critics of engaging in, doesn’t it?

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) called out the utter absurdity of AOC’s claim:

AOC then doubled down on the stupid, asking Cheney what she would call the detention centers:

Asked and answered:

Yep.

There’s absolutely something AOC can do about this, though – but she and other shamelessly opportunistic Democrats in the U.S. House who are using the border crisis as a political football refuse to:

Sen. Mitch McConnell plans on calling the Democratic party’s bluff on this issue next week. I can’t wait.

AOC Takes Aim at Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden in New Interview

Westlake Legal Group alexandria-ocasio-cortez-congressional-islamic-dinner-SCREENSHOT-620x355 AOC Takes Aim at Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden in New Interview Politics Nonsensical New York Nancy Pelosi Joe Biden Internal Division impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story dumb donald trump democrats civil war AOC Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 2020 election

Screen grab via: @RealSaavedra.

Internal divisions within the Democratic party are nothing new. We’ve seen Pelosi desperately trying to hold back the tide against her own caucus on impeachment for months now.

One of the highlights (for those of us who aren’t Democrats) was Nancy Pelosi making this quip about AOC and her “wing.”

Unfortunately for Pelosi, she’s losing this battle. More and more of her left-wing counterparts are salivating at the idea of impeaching President Trump even though it makes no logical sense whatsoever.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of those countering Pelosi more and more often.

This per The Daily Wire.

Ocasio-Cortez told ABC News’s “This Week” on Sunday that Pelosi should recognize that enforcing a “rule of law” is more important than long term strategic wins.

“I think every day that passes the pressure to impeach grows. It’s justifiable. I think the evidence continues to come in and I believe that with the president now saying that he’s willing to break the law to win re-election, that — that goes — that transcends partisanship. It transcends party lines. This is now about the rule of law in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez told host Jon Karl.

Just to spoil the fun here, regardless of what you think of Trump’s comments on looking at foreign sourced opposition research, he never said he was going to break the law to do so. It is not illegal for a Norwegian (which is the example Trump used) to tell a candidate about something illicit that their opponent did.

As some have opined since the admission, if the idea is that it’s always wrong to have a foreigner as a source of information, then that’s basically a green light for politicians to do whatever they want overseas. The fact is that many people who run for President are very internationally connected and if they do something objectively wrong overseas, it’s almost certainly going to be a foreign national who has that evidence.

The entire argument is just dumb and is a clear affront to free speech and freedom of association. There’s a difference between something being illegal and something being morally questionable. Regardless, the outrage over what Trump said is clearly partisan given that Hillary literally contracted a company that ended up using Russian government sources in 2016.

AOC wants blood though and she’s sending brush back pitches at Pelosi’s head right now.

Asked “how real” the rumored progressive “animus” toward Pelosi really is, Ocasio-Cortez was clear that progressives’ patience is wearing thin.

“I think it’s quite real. I believe there is a very real animus and desire to make sure that we holding this president to account,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

This is a problem for the Speaker. AOC may be fringe in the context of the country, but she’s becoming a louder and louder voice within her party. How long can Pelso hold her off? I’m not sure but I do know that impeachment makes absolutely no sense given the lack of evidence and how close we are to a coming election anyway.

AOC didn’t stop with Pelosi though. She also hit at Biden (again).

As far as strategy goes, Ocasio-Cortez was quick to claim that a “moderate” Democrat like former Vice President Joe Biden would alienate much of the Democratic base, and that Americans are clamoring for “a presidential candidate that is fighting for true transformational change.”

In other words, she wants Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

I actually don’t think she’s correct here, which is a bit redundant when talking about anything AOC says. The Democrat base wants to beat Trump. That’s basically the entirety of their voters’ motivation outside of the very fringe left. If Biden is the nominee, they are still going to turn out for him.

I also don’t think Americans are clamoring for “true transformational change.” We tend to just want to be left alone and voters value stability. That’s why Trump’s biggest risk going into 2020 is the perception of volatility he gives off. He’d be coasting to re-election if it were just about policies and the economy.

AOC is making a strategic mistake here. She’s picking more fights than she can win. Going after Pelosi is one thing. Inserting herself into the Presidential race is another. She’s even decided to re-ignite her feud with Amazon. Eventually, AOC is going to have too many enemies to overcome. Never mind that what she’s pushing for, whether it be impeachment or economic transformation, is bad for the country.

It’ll be very interesting to see whether any Democrat will have the guts to try to primary her in 2020. I know the Democrat establishment sees her as a nuisance but whether they’ve got the gumption to do anything about it has yet to be seen.

Consultant to the Biggest Video Game in 2019 Told Social Justice Warriors Where to Stick It

Westlake Legal Group 1b4f1e3e-eb20-4dee-a30b-ae8841a73b67.v1-620x317 Consultant to the Biggest Video Game in 2019 Told Social Justice Warriors Where to Stick It transgender SJWs Politics Offense Mike Pondsmith Media LGBT Internet Gaming Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment Cyberpunk 2077 Cyberpunk 2020 CD Projekt Red Allow Media Exception

Mike Pondsmith is the creator of the Cyberpunk 2020, a popular tabletop role-playing game much like Dungeons & Dragons, only set in a future where self-identity has come first. In fact, a 1995 supplemental rule book for the tabletop RPG lists almost a perfect description of what’s happening today in its description of the world.

It’s eerily prophetic.

With the highly anticipated and Keanu Reeves assisted hype of Cyberpunk 2077 by CD Projekt Red coming out soon, Pondsmith has reentered the spotlight, and rightly so. He’s been appearing on message boards, participating in interviews, and even playing his own tabletop game with high profile gaming sites, all in preparation for the release of 2077.

Of course, like anything that is this high profile, the social justice warriors within our society want their pound of flesh and have found their excuse to demand it.

In one of the advertisements for the game, a screenshot was released of a trans person selling soda with a very pronounced…bulge. This has naturally set off the trans activist community, which has taken offense to it…because of course, they have.

Pondsmith, speaking to people discussing the topic in a Reddit thread, weighed in after people more or less demanded that he take offense to the picture in the game. To say the least, he wasn’t having it according to Niche Gamer:

“Want to say this just once. I am really tired of well meaning people on internet chat boards paternalistically telling me what I, as a black person, should be offended by. You want to be my ally? Go gird up your loins and at this year’s Thanksgiving dinner, have the nerve to tell your racist Uncle Bob to STFU for a change.”

Pondsmith was backed up by Art Director for 2077 Kasia Redesiuk, who acknowledged that the reason that trans person is there is because it reflects the kind of world 2077 is for the sake of story:

“You’ll notice many advertisements – for anything, a table, chair, a roof tile – slap a random sexy person on top and say ‘hey, buy this’. This shows the sexploitation of those people, and many of our advertisements feature this sexualisation. We sexualise men, women, and people in between, all to show how terrible this is.

With our advertisements, we want to say something. For instance, there’s an advert for a fashion shop with the Colosseum – this beautiful piece of architecture – which has been taken over and turned into a marketplace. It’s art destroyed for consumerism’s sake.

[…] So yes, we have a person with both breasts and a penis on an advertisement, done on purpose, because it’s terrible to exploit people’s bodies like this. The poster in question is an advert for Chromanticore, a regular cola, one of many fictional drink brands in the game.

We thought this would be a brand which would slap a body on the advert and think nothing of it. It’s a terrible thing to say ‘mix it up’. We’re emulating what a company would say in Cyberpunk 2077.”

The problem that the SJW community is having is that it can’t separate the story from reality. It believes that no matter what medium it is, certain groups must be handled with velvet gloves at all times. It must be addressed with respect, if not reverence.

This is not how you make a good story, but SJWs don’t care about a good story, they care about being shown in glorious light. This is why you see companies that embrace the SJW message — Mass Effect Andromede, for instance, — fail miserably, while games that reject it succeed like Far Cry 5.

I would love to see more creators stand against the pressure the hard left community attempts to force on them and focus more on creating good stories than appeasing unpleasable people.

Female Track Runner Sidelined by Male Competitors Petitions the Department of Education for Justice

Screenshot from TheDC Shorts, https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=199&v=O4mXCSx5k0U]

 

 

It’s striking how quickly the culture can change. Just a short time ago, surely few would’ve believed that a common viewpoint — that it would be unfair to let guys take away athletic victories from girls by allowing them to compete in women’s sports — would be labeled the result of an irrational fear.

Yet here we are: What was considered common sense and common goodness is now a symptom of mental illness.

“Transphobia” has gotten so much traction, in fact, that Brazil just criminalized it — it’s punishable by a half decade in prison. See my coverage of that turn of events here.

About 4,000 miles north — in Connecticut — one girl’s standing against the athletic co-mingling of the sexes, transphobia be darned.

High school track runner Selina Soule is speaking her mind…to the government.

Selina was recently sidelined by not one but two men who beat her: After finishing behind a group that included a couple dudes in the 55-meter dash, she was unable to compete in the New England regionals.

As I’ve pointed out previously, this is what the infiltration of men into women’s athletics does: It steals attention and opportunity and scholarships and careers from women who would otherwise find them. It robs them of bright futures that their wins and awards would otherwise have brought.

On Tucker Carlson Tonight Monday, Selina and her attorney — Christiana Holcomb of the Alliance Defending Freedom — voiced their opposition to that confiscation.



For Selina, the quest for justice has wrought blowback:

“I’ve gotten nothing but support from my teammates and from other athletes, but I have experienced some retaliation from school officials and coaches. … I’ve gotten some very difficult requests for me to complete in practice, and if I don’t fulfill these requests, then I can’t compete at all. And this never happened before. It only started after my parents met with the school principal.”

Tucker asked, “Is there any chance of [men’s intrusion] being undone?”

Christiana said Yes.

A Title IX complaint is being filed, asking the Department of Education “to step in, to investigate, and to restore a level playing field for Selina.”

“Title IX was designed to ensure that girls have a fair shake at athletics and are not denied the opportunity to participate at the highest levels of competition,” she explained.

Selina pointed out she isn’t the only girl on her team to fall victim to a dominating dude:

“We missed out on winning the state open championship because of the team that the transgender athlete was, won.”

To highlight the damage, Christiana offered a stunning stat:

“One of these male athletes now holds 10 records inside the state of Connecticut that were once held by 10 individual girls and were established over the course of about a 20-year period.”

Wow.

Tucker summarized:

“It’s grotesque and insane, and it hurts women and girls. And the very people who claim to be defending women and girls are abetting this and making it possible.”

It’s a potent reminder of just how political things can be — at the same time men are being criticized for keeping women down, men who are doing the same on the field are being praised. It’s the result of an altogether different kind of oppression: identity politics is on the track, and it’s beating the pants off the principle of fairness.

And when fairness loses…well, that flat-out stinks. Or maybe I’m just a stinkophobe.

Video: Lawrence Jones Discusses the Racist Taunts He Received at a New York “Impeach Trump” Rally

Westlake Legal Group LawrenceJonesFoxNews-620x333 Video: Lawrence Jones Discusses the Racist Taunts He Received at a New York “Impeach Trump” Rally Sean Hannity racism Politics North Carolina New York Lawrence Jones impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page fox news Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture Allow Media Exception

Campus Reform editor-in-chief Lawrence Jones appears on the Sean Hannity Show – 6/17/19. Screen grab via Fox News.

Over the weekend, Fox News contributor and Campus Reform editor-in-chief Lawrence Jones went to an “Impeach Trump” rally in New York City to interview attendees and get their thoughts on why they believed President Trump should be impeached.

Jones got a lot of garden variety answers from the crowd along the lines of “Trump colluded with the Russians!” and “Trump’s an illegal president!”, but what stood out even more than those answers were the racist taunts Jones received from some of the rally-goers:

According to a Fox News producer at the scene, two men walked up to Jones near the end of the rally and told him to go back to Fox News “where there’s more cotton for you to pick.”

The producer said he asked one of the men: “What did you just say?” When the man made the same comment, the producer asked if he “was really going to say that,” to which the man responded: “I sure am.”

With Jones’ camera rolling, the man confronted by the producer, wearing a gray shirt, turned his back to the camera and made an obscene gesture. The second man, wearing a red shirt, told Jones: “He’ll tell you to go back to Kenya next.”

“You say what now?” Jones asked.

“He’ll tell you ‘go back to Kenya’ next,” the man in the red shirt said.

Jones appeared on Sean Hannity’s program Monday night and talked about his experience:

Two men who hurled racial taunts at Fox News contributor Lawrence Jones reveal the true sentiments of some on the left, he said.

Jones told Sean Hannity on “Hannity” that many conservatives are wrongfully construed as hateful and discriminatory, and the media will likely ignore the New York City incident.

“This is who they are, Sean,” the Campus Reform editor-in-chief claimed. “So often those of us on the right are painted as the racist people, the hateful people,” he said.

“I was just asking these people a simple question about if they felt like the president should be impeached or not.”

[…]

“I’m going to expose it every single day. If they think I’ll stand down because they yelled obscene things, to me they have another thing coming.”

According to Hannity, Jones and his camera crew were only able to get one of the two racist taunts on video. Watch Jones’s interview with Hannity below – included is the one racist incident they were able to capture on camera:

Jones is right in that our mainstream media firefighters by and large will not condemn this. I would be seriously shocked to see Brian Stelter weigh in on the incident. Stelter is too busy questioning Trump’s mental health and actually attacking Fox News to care much about what happens to its journalists, hosts, and contributors.

Unfortunately, what happened to Jones is not just a one-off. These types of vicious taunts happen to black conservatives daily. Female conservatives get insulted, too, and are labeled as “slaves to the patriarchy” and other such nonsense. Hispanic conservatives are treated the same way. Same for conservatives in the LGBTQ community.

Basically, if you are considered a minority and you don’t toe the liberal line on perpetual victimhood and leftism in general, you are an inauthentic woman/black person/Hispanic/LGBTQ, etc.

One of the biggest lies the left has been able to successfully perpetuate over the years is that they are “tolerant” and “welcoming” of diverse viewpoints from diverse groups. They’re not. They never have been. The vile treatment Jones received is one on a long list of many such incidents that disprove the left’s claims of “tolerance.”

Democrats Once Again Ask Us to Give Up Our Guns As They Promote Physical Conflict

If someone with an electricity problem came to me about it I would direct them to an electrician, not begin rattling off nonsense about how power cables are a danger to society and resorting to disproven ways of keeping us safe from electric shock and outlet fires.

Democrats seem to have this kind of mindset about firearms, and consistently rattle off “facts” and insight that is particularly ridiculous, especially given the fact that much of what they suggest only seems to worsen problems or, at the very least, exposes their ignorance.

It’s worse when politicians are on the campaign trail simultaneously suggesting that Democrats get physical with Republicans.

Diane Feinstein (D-Calif) and Chris Murphy (D- Conn) recently penned an article in TIME, once again calling for the ban of America’s most popular rifle, the AR-15.

The dystopian duo made the usual case you hear from Democrats trying to get you to give up your gun rights. There have been shootings and gun violence, and Republicans are standing in the way of lawmakers passing strict gun regulations that would magically make all of this stop.

It wouldn’t, and getting rid of guns in America would be impossible, as I explain in this video below.

They then begin asking why nothing is changing and throw out the “97 percent of people agree” line about universal background checks. This number was found by a Quinnipiac poll in 2018 and has remained highly suspect due to the fact that 97 percent of people simply don’t agree on anything. Furthermore, if 97 percent of people did agree, then it’s odd that a universal background check law hasn’t been passed by Congress since in a no-contest vote.

Regardless, the core of the article is talking about how Republicans are essentially the reason you keep seeing shootings happen, completely ignoring the fact that the majority of these shootings occur due to being in a gun free zone where people are pretty much guaranteed not to shoot back.

They then attempted to tell you, the reader, about what AR-15’s are used for.

“Guns like the AR-15 aren’t used for hunting and they’re not viable for home protection,” wrote the Democrats. “They have only one purpose, and that’s to fire as many rounds as possible, as quickly as possible.”

Expect not.

As David Rutz at the Free Beacon notes, many hunters do use the AR-15 for just that purpose, not to mention home defense:

However, the AR-15, the most popular rifle in America, is used for hunting and home defense. MRC-TV noted a poll showing more than 25 percent of hunters reported using the rifle to hunt big game. In addition, the rifle is popular for home defense given its light weight and limited recoil, making it easier for owners to handle.

The Daily Signal reported on eight recent examples of civilians using AR-15s to protect themselves and others, including a 15-year-old Texas boy who fought off two home invaders threatening him and his 12-year-old sister.

The Democrats finish by putting in on Republicans to fall in with Democrats on banning and restricting firearms and lists the classic Democrat warning of “people will die” if they don’t.

“Senate Democrats are ready to vote,” wrote the Democrats. “It’s time for Senate Republicans to show some courage and implement sane gun safety reforms. If we don’t, more will die.”

It should be noted that Democrats don’t truly care about the AR-15. Handguns are used far more in violent crime, and Democrats have more or less given up on going that route in their quest for gun control. The attack on the AR-15 is just an attempt to chip away at what they think is the weakest part of the wall.

The truth is that guns aren’t going anywhere. America’s foundation literally involves the use of guns by civilians as a method of keeping its government in check. The 2nd Amendment wasn’t created to protect us from deer and clay pigeons, but oppression. While it’s true that guns are used in malicious ways, they are also primarily responsible for saving lives either through law enforcement or self-defense.

Especially in an age where Democrats are getting more physical than ever, and with their leaders suggesting physicality on the regular — Joe Biden just did it on Monday — I’m not exactly feeling good about giving up my best means of defense. If politicians like Maxine Waters and Corey Booker are out there urging their base to find them wherever they are, get in their face, and make them feel unwelcome, then giving up our best means of defense is out of the question.

We live in an era where Antifa will literally show up at your door or assault you on the street. Where an angry mob may confront you while you’re trying to sit down to dinner. At some point, someone is going to take something too far and I’d rather be prepared than sorry.

The sheepdog doesn’t hand over his teeth to the wolves. You shouldn’t hand over your teeth either.

Joe Biden Suggests a “Physical Revolution” to Deal With Senate Republicans

Joe Biden is a gaffe factory. He churns them out on an assembly line where they slip right past quality control and hit the market where they are eagerly gobbled up by people like me. Personally, I consider his gaffes one of his most entertaining qualities.

On Monday, Biden decided to model a gaffe of his after Maxine Waters by suggesting people get physical if they don’t like the way Republicans are doing things.

While at the Moral Action Congress of the Poor People’s Campaign in Washington, D.C., Biden was being asked by MSNBC’s Joy Reid how Biden would get past a majority Republican Senate set to kill anything Biden wants.

“How would you get past either a majority Republican Senate in which Mitch McConnell was determined to kill all of these ideas or even a Mitch McConnell in the minority who repeated the consistent filibustering when you were vice president and anything that came from the Obama-Biden administration Mitch McConnell considered dead on arrival?” asked Reid.

At first, Biden’s response was pretty reasonable.

“Joy, I know you’re one of the ones who thinks it’s naive to think we have to work together,” Biden said while looking Ried directly in the eye. “The fact of the matter is if we can’t get a consensus, nothing happens except the abuse of power by the executive.”

Biden noted that the second option was a “brass knuckle fight.”

“If you start off with the notion that there’s nothing you can do, then why don’t you go home then, man?” said Biden. “Or let’s start a real physical revolution if you’re talking about it. Because we have to be able to change what we’re doing in our system.”

I’m under the impression that Biden was trying to emphasize bipartisan cooperation from Democrats and essentially telling them that if they aren’t willing to do that then stop complaining and do something about it, thinking they probably wouldn’t take it that far.

The problem is that I’m not sure if Biden knows his own party if that’s the case. He’s from an age where bipartisanship was a bit easier to come by and the internet wasn’t around making it easier to organize mobs. He may not realize that the left takes it that far all the time in the form of Antifa riots, physical confrontations at restaurants, and campus violence.

Regardless, that Biden would even suggest a physical revolution in a physical way in a universe without a violent left is irresponsible.

I’d like to give gaffe-master B the benefit of the doubt and say he’s calling out Democrats for being expert complainers who do nothing about it, and that they have no choice but to try to work together with Republicans for the benefit of our nation, but I can’t say for sure. He’s not making that an easy argument to stand by, and in this day and age where Antifa may just show up at your door, no matter how you slice it, Biden’s words come off as threatening.
