Trump Bulldozes “Dummy” Beto’s Gun Confiscation Plan, Lays Down Some Inconvenient Truths for Democrats

After a growing number of Democrats in recent days have criticized Beto O’Rourke’s gun confiscation plan as unhelpful and unrealistic, President Trump took his turn at the Twitter microphone this morning and delivered some inconvenient truths of his own to the struggling presidential candidate and his party.

Here’s what the President tweeted:

Trump was responding to remarks O’Rourke made at last Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate where he said “Hell yes” in response to ABC News debate moderator David Muir’s question about whether or not he was going to take away people’s guns if elected president:

MUIR: Some of the stage have suggested a voluntary buy-back for guns in this country. You have gone further. You said, quote, “Americans who own AR-15s and AK-47s will have to sell them to the government, all of them. You know that critics call this confiscation. Are you proposing taking away their guns and how would this work?

BETO O’ROURKE: I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield. If the high impact, high velocity, when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed to do that so you would bleed to death on a battlefield and not be able to get up and kill one of our soldiers. When we see that being used against children and in Odessa, I met the mother of a 15-year-old girl who was shot by an AR-15 and that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa, there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time. Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore.

As of this writing “Dummy Beto” is still trending on Twitter:

The failed Senate candidate replied by doubling down on his call to “buy back” all “assault weapons”, and accusing Trump of “cowardice”:

Beto can say Trump is a “coward” on this issue all day long but it doesn’t change the fact that Trump is right.

What Beto declared at the debate confirms the worst fears of gun rights groups and other 2nd Amendment defenders who have warned for years that Democratic efforts at gun control were part of a “step-by-step process” to eventually take away guns. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) explained this well on Thursday when asked about universal background checks:

“When you really understand what the endgame of the left is, it’s literally mandatory buybacks or as I call it: confiscation. This is a step-by-step process for them,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) told The Hill Thursday when asked about the debate over expanded background checks for firearms sales.

Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE), who has been working with Republican Senators on a compromise bill, said last Friday on CNN that O’Rourke’s statement at the debate “will be played for years at Second Amendment rallies with organizations that try to scare people by saying Democrats are coming for your guns.”

To make matters worse for Democrats, O’Rourke is not the only presidential candidate calling for mandatory gun confiscation. Sens. Kamala Harris (CA) and Cory Booker (NJ), whose campaigns are going nowhere but who have nevertheless both been floated as vice presidential possibilities, have endorsed his plan.

If Beto was a wise man he would have never jumped on board the gun grabbing train and instead offered up some constitutionally sound common sense solutions that most Americans (including his fellow Texans) could get behind. But after the horrific El Paso mass shooting, he has been operating solely on emotion and anger on this issue, which is precisely why he belongs nowhere near the White House.

Because as I’ve written before, no matter how passionate, emotional, and personal an issue may be to a candidate, an unconstitutional plan is still unconstitutional.

Dan Patrick Crushes Beto – the ‘Radical Looney’ Will ‘Never be a Threat to Texas Politics Again’ Uncategorized Texas Ted Cruz socialism Guns gun control Government Front Page Stories Featured Story elections Dan Patrick Campaigns Beto O'Rourke ar-15 Allow Media Exception 2020

If someone were particularly critical of Beto O’Rourke, and if they were intent upon expressing it, they may say something similar to, “The painfully clueless goofball seemingly unaware of how to come across like a normal person has made a complete fool of himself over and over and over.”

The may also provide examples such as…

Let’s Talk About Beto – He’s Sure Talking About You…Racists

Beto Insists Central Americans Have ‘No Choice’ But To Attempt Illegal Immigration Because You Starved Them With Your ‘Excesses’

Beto Can’t Abandon His Pursuit Of 2020, Because Anything Less Wouldn’t Be ‘Good Enough’ For You. Just Ask Him

Beto’s Latest Presidential Move – By Way Of Video – Is Absolutely Hilarious & Enormously Pitiful

Beto O’Rourke’s Latest Goofy ‘Man Of The People’ Video Continues His Tone-Deaf Race To 2020 Obscurity

Beto Proves He’s The Coolest – And Most Mature – Candidate By Using The F Word On Live Television

Beto Continues His Mad Dash For Abject Failure, Calls On Banks To Refuse Credit Card Use For 2nd Amendment Purchases

But they might not.

Either way, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick had something to say Tuesday about the anti-privileged-millionaire privileged millionaire.

Following Beto’s most recent move — a promise to steal America’s most popular hunting rifle from its citizens — Dan released a statement:

“When I heard Beto’s now infamous statement in the debate last week – ‘hell yes we are going to take your AR-15’s and your AK-47’s…’ My first thought was, thank God he lost to Ted Cruz. Because the Texas press never asked him any serious questions in that race, it wasn’t clear until now what a radical left-winger he is – the most radical of all the looney leftists and socialists currently running for president.”

Looney!

In Dan’s view, Beto’s idioted his way right out of politics:

“My second thought was he will never be a threat to Texas politics again. He’s stuck in tiny single digits in the polls, so he’s not going to be president, but now the Democrats can’t even put him on the ticket with the hope that he will help win Texas. He’s a gun confiscator – he’s done in our state.”

That sounds about right — Texans aren’t known for their desire to have their firearms stolen by a guy who plays punk rock in a sheep mask and white onesie:

Yeah — that ain’t Texas.

How can someone be so breathtakingly tone deaf?

Perhaps his race against Ted served to embolden his more rock ‘n’ roll sensibilities — he came within striking distance of Ted’s victory.

Or maybe, as former Republican Govern John Sununu recently asserted, it’s merely the rashness of despair:

“He really is desperate at this point and will say just about anything to get a headline.”

Hence, you get these:

Dan dug into Beto’s fashion line:

“Now he’s selling T-shirts with his ‘hell yes’ statement – another flailing attempt to hide his naked ambition and distract from his doomed campaign.”

Dang!

“Beto says he has talked to people in Texas who own AR-15s and they support his confiscation plan – so he found some liberal who agrees with him. It’s a big state, but the people I talk to don’t want to give up their guns. They know it is the evil intentions of a shooter, not the gun that is a threat to our safety.”

The lieutenant governor also pointed out something I haven’t seen much mentioned, which is — I think — a profound point: The term “buyback” is nonsensical.

“I will never support banning the AR-15s, AK-47s, or a phony buyback program – the government can’t buy back something they have never owned.”

Beto’s idea of government, so far as Dan is concerned, is exceedingly turdish:

“This is what our Second Amendment rights are about — making sure the government can never take away our guns.”

Will Beto ride it out into 2020? How much longer do you expect him to stay in the race? I wanna hear from you in the Comments section.

Marble Halls & Silver Screens w/Sarah Lee Ep. 6: The ‘Kavanaugh, Hustlers, And Student Athlete Endorsements’ Edition

Westlake Legal Group Kavanaugh-4 Marble Halls & Silver Screens w/Sarah Lee Ep. 6: The ‘Kavanaugh, Hustlers, And Student Athlete Endorsements’ Edition Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

“Oh, you thought we were done with Brett Kavanugh? That’s cute…” ~ Democrats, probably.

If you’re wondering where cancel culture ends, you’ll have to sit tight a bit longer because it’s reached its peak with the latest, recycled, allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Two “journalists” from The New York Times have written a book you see, an excerpt of which appeared in the Times newspaper, in which they allege — among other things — that Kavanaugh’s friends helped him sexually assault someone by literally placing his penis in a drunk girl’s hand.

I can get into how the “victim” doesn’t remember any such thing happening to her, how the Times piece left that out and later had to amend their “reporting”, how the book also reveals a former friend of Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey-Ford has decided to come forward and call BS on the whole thing (and announces she was threatened and intimidated to feel differently), etc. But I’m just going to let you all process the absurdity of a claim that Kavanaugh’s friends did what they are alleged to have done.

The good news is that it’s clear cancel culture is desperate because whoa…they’re really expecting us to believe these whoppers…

And I talk it about it all on the show!

I also give a review of the new Jennifer Lopez film, Hustlers, based on this actual piece of reporting from New York Magazine. In particular, I discuss the “feminism” and “empowerment” of ladies who throw themselves at the basest impulses of men to the degree that they begin seeing men as nothing more than marks.

Finally, I talk college football and whether or not we should be seriously considering what California (that purveyor of all good ideas *eyeroll*) is seriously considering and paying college athletes. Do we really want college athletes to become employees, represented by unions? Because that’s what California wants. Further, they want the rest of the country to ultimately comply, which could run counter to the Commerce Clause (please forgive my fumbling in the show trying to explain this. I’m not a Constitutional scholar, but I think I got it out there without butchering the concept.)

[I left something out of the show that I promised at the top to talk briefly about and forgot. So I’ll put it here because it legitimately made me laugh aloud like a crazy person. Anyone who’s ever seen pictures of Namath in that fur coat from the 70s knows why this is hilarious.]

President Trump Names Robert O’Brien As His New National Security Advisor

Westlake Legal Group breaking-news-report-620x335 President Trump Names Robert O’Brien As His New National Security Advisor white house War security Robert C. O'Brien President Trump new National Security Advisor National Security Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump Allow Media Exception

 

This morning, President Trump announced that he will name Robert C. O’Brien as his new National Security Advisor. This position does not require confirmation by the senate. He wrote:

I am pleased to announce that I will name Robert C. O’Brien, currently serving as the very successful Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs at the State Department, as our new National Security Advisor. I have worked long & hard with Robert. He will do a great job!

 

According to the Washington Post:

Administration officials had viewed him as a safe choice given his strong rapport with colleagues at the State Department and the Pentagon. His “affable demeanor” contrasts with Bolton, who was known as a ruthless bureaucratic infighter, an administration official said last week, requesting anonymity to speak more candidly.

He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California, Los Angeles and his Juris Doctor degree from the University of California, Berkeley, Boalt Hall School of Law. “He was a Rotary Scholar at the University of the Free State in South Africa and he speaks fluent Afrikaans.”

O’Brien is a co-founder of Larson O’Brien LLP.

He has served in the administrations of Presidents George W. Bush and Donald Trump. In November, he was confirmed by the senate as the “US Alternate Representative to the 60th session of the United Nations General Assembly, which met in New York 2005-2006. He addressed the General Assembly on the question of Palestine and represented the United States in the General Assembly’s Sixth Committee, which considered the Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism.” Wikipedia reports:

O’Brien served as Co-Chairman of the United States Department of State’s Public-Private Partnership for Justice Reform in Afghanistan, launched in December 2007 by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. O’Brien continues to serve on the Public Private Partnership Executive Committee. On July 31, 2008, President George W. Bush announced his intention to appoint O’Brien to serve in his administration as a member of the Cultural Property Advisory Committee and represent the interests of the general public, for the remainder of a three-year term which expired on April 25, 2011.

In May 2018, Trump appointed O’Brien as Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs. In May 2019, “he was given the rank of ambassador one year later.”

O’Brien recently appeared in the news for his role in the A$AP Rocky case in Sweden. The rapper was found guilty of assault but did not face prison time for it.

The first order of business for Mr. O’Brien will be to help President Trump sort out the perilous situation in the middle east in the aftermath of Iran’s alleged attack on a Saudi Arabian oil facility.

CBS News reports:

As national security adviser, O’Brien will be responsible for consolidating sensitive information for the president and presenting him with options. Mr. Trump openly said he had serious disagreements with Bolton, and that’s why he was pushed out of the position last week.

Immediately, O’Brien will be tackling any U.S. response to the Saudi oil strikes. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is scheduled to be in Saudi Arabia the next couple days to assess the situation. O’Brien will also be in the position to give Mr. Trump guidance on what to do in Afghanistan, which was a major point of contention between Mr. Trump and Bolton.

I’ve Said Some Very Unkind Things About Corey Lewandowski and I Take Them All Back

Westlake Legal Group lewandowski-house-judiciary-committee-620x317 I’ve Said Some Very Unkind Things About Corey Lewandowski and I Take Them All Back Special Counsel republicans Politics New York New Hampshire Jerry Nadler impeachment House Judiciary Committee Front Page Stories Featured Story eric swalwell donald trump democrats Corey Lewandowski California Allow Media Exception

Corey Lewandowski, former campaign manager for President Donald Trump, references a copy of the Mueller Report that he requested to be brought to him, as he testifies to the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019, in Washington. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)

Yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee as chaired by Fat Jerry Nadler was revealed to the world for the collection of lackwits that it is. The proximate cause of this revelation was Nadler’s insistence on obtaining televised testimony of former Trump aide and occasional campaign manager and New Hampshire senate candidate Corey Lewandowski. My colleague, Elizabeth Vaughn, has the full story in Lewandowski Trolls Lawmakers At House Judiciary Committee Hearing; Calls Eric Swalwell ‘President Swalwell’.

There were epic moments. We have Lewandowski calling Eric Swawell “Presidnent Swalwell.”

We have Mensa-reject, Sheila Jackson Lee referring to “Volume Eleven” of the Mueller Report”

And getting nothing at all from Lewandowski

Nadler refused to allow a GOP member any opportunity to question Lewandowski and gave a highly paid consultant and major Democrat donor thirty minutes.

All this blow-tried toad was able to elicit from Lewandowski was that he doesn’t feel under any obligation to tell the media the truth. [Insert “shocked face” emoji.]

Somehow this is a major revelation to the same people who pushed lie after lie upon the American people with the Russia Hoax.

In short, I doubt that there was ever a witness before any House committee who was more richly in contempt of the membership and the process than was Lewandowski. And it was only fair. Nadler and his fluffers have worked long and hard to reach the level of assclownishness they have achieved and they should not be deprived of their reward.

This morning, CNN had Lewandowski on to be interviewed by one of it dimmer bulbs (this, in a universe of talent that includes Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, and Brian Stelter is not much of a distinction), Alisyn Camerota. It went about as well as could have been expected given Camerota’s lack of talent.

The left seems to think that Camerota drew blood because Lewandowski says he never read the Mueller report, but this is the real blood being drawn. CNN is belaboring Lewandowski for lying to the media (I really don’t get why this is a revelation to sane people) while they employ a contributor who is facing indictment for making false statements to the DOJ IG. Not quite credible.

Yesterday he walked into a hostile hearing and left a Category 4 hurricane trail of wreckage behind him. He went on CNN this morning and gave a performance that will haunt Camerota’s dreams for a decade or so…I wouldn’t be surprised to encounter her at a PTSD clinic…or on Skid Row scoring crack.

During the 2015-2106 season, I said some bad things about Lewandowski. They were justified, mind you, but perhaps overly harsh. Based on his performance yesterday and today, I take them all back. I’ll even send some money to his Senate campaign.

She’s Free, Freefallin’: Kamala Harris Places ‘a Distant Fifth’ in New Presidential Poll … in California

New Democratic presidential polling information for California from an Emerson University survey shows Joe Biden and Sens. Bernie Sanders (VT) and Elizabeth Warren (MA) all firmly in the top tier with numbers in the double digits. But for home state Sen. Kamala Harris? The news is not good.

The Hill reports:

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are tied for first place among Democratic primary voters in California, while home-state Sen. Kamala Harris (D) is running in a distant fifth, according to a new poll.

[…]

Tech entrepreneur and political newcomer Andrew Yang notches 7 percent support in the survey, with Harris following at 6 percent support.

That is a four point slide for Harris since the last Emerson poll that was taken in late August.

The Emerson poll released Tuesday was also taken after last Thursday’s Democratic debate, which shows that much like the second debate, she didn’t do herself any favors with voters in her own state.

Harris isn’t doing any better in national post-debate polls, either:

Just how bad is the California polling information for the Harris campaign? Very bad:

The survey is a sign that Harris may face a difficult battle in her home state’s nominating contest, a delegate-rich election that carries more significance than ever because of an accelerated primary schedule that places it on Super Tuesday, when voters in a dozen states will cast their ballots for the Democratic nomination.

“Senator Kamala Harris is in trouble in her home state. If she is unable to gain momentum in Iowa or New Hampshire, come Super Tuesday she might have a similar fate to Sen. Marco Rubio in 2016, when he was unable to win his home state of Florida and dropped out of the race,” Emerson Polling Director Spencer Kimball said, referring to Rubio’s 2016 loss to President Trump in Florida’s Republican presidential primary.

The Hill also notes that there has never been a candidate who lost their home state in a primary who ultimately won the presidential nomination.

That the Harris campaign has been in a freefall over the last two and a half months is not new news, but the fact that her numbers are in the basement in her home state is a very troubling sign for her campaign. There is no other way they can spin it.

Assuming she qualifies for the 4th Democratic debate next month, you gotta think at this point that she’s only staying in the race to put herself in contention for a veep slot.

Earlier this month, Harris told a Fox News reporter that in spite of the fact that she was polling in the low single digits she should still be considered in the “top tier.” She is in the top tier only in her own mind at this point.

Ilhan Omar’s Excuses for Her Latest Controversy Don’t Add Up

Yesterday, it was noted that something strange happened on Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Twitter account. Namely, that she deleted a tweet from seven years ago in which she wished her father a happy Father’s Day. My colleague Elizabeth Vaughn wrote about the initial incident, which you can read here.

This would all seem inauspicious if not for the content involved.

The math is simple. Omar acknowledges in her old tweet that Nur Said was her father. Ahmed Nur Said Elmi was Omar’s mysterious, past husband. In Arabic, the father’s name is the middle name you see here, i.e. Nur Said. Are we really supposed to keep thinking all of this is coincidence?

Omar apparently thinks so, as she put out this statement in response.

So she was calling her father Nur Said as a nickname? Let’s note that’s something that happens in Arabic households. You don’t call a father a completely different surname, especially not in traditional, more fundamentalist households, which Omar was a part of. What “doctored” images is she even talking about? I couldn’t find any proof of that. The threats angle is also weak. If she receives constant threats, why wait until someone points out the discrepancy involving her marrying her brother to run and delete it?

None of this makes any sense at all.

This isn’t going to just go away, nor should it. There’s not just smoke here, there’s fires burning out in the open. Omar has spent years deleting social media posts and purging her online presence. This was long before she even had a major public profile after 2018. She wasn’t doing that because of “death threats” or any other nonsensical excuses. She was covering something up and she continues to do so.

Even the naming conventions that Omar claims don’t add up. It’s is all very confusing (no doubt by design) but you can read about some of glaring red flags here going all the way back to 2016 investigative reporting. Why did her father change his name? Why did he go by Nur Said on Omar’s sister’s marriage certificate? Where’d the name Omar even come from? No one can seem to find any other relatives that go by that name.

Everything here is pointing to immigration fraud and more and more evidence is mounting that she married her brother. The mainstream press won’t touch this and it’s a testament to how useless they are. If a Republican were caught up in something like this, there would be a dozen reporters from The Washington Post alone assigned to digging deeper. Instead, Omar is allowed to obfuscate, refuse to answer questions, and pretend like nothing is suspect. Eventually the truth is going to come out though.

Biden Claims Proposed Child Care Tax Credit Would Bring 720 Million Women Into the Workforce; Watch

Former Vice President Joe Biden spoke to supporters at the Workers’ Presidential Summit in Philadelphia on Tuesday and touted his proposal for an $8,000 tax credit to pay for childcare costs. He said:

You get a tax break for a racehorse, why in God’s name couldn’t we provide an $8,000 tax credit for everybody who has childcare costs? It would put 720 million women back in the workforce. It would increase the GDP, to sound like a wonk here, by about eight-tenths of one percent. It would grow the economy.

His remarks can be heard in the clip below.

Another blunder by the frontrunner in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. Nearly every time Biden speaks, he commits another gaffe. Democrats seem to be slowly coming around to the fact that he will not be able to beat Trump. Although Biden has managed to maintain his lead in most polls, there are signs he is losing ground to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released on Tuesday questioned 506 Democratic primary voters between September 13-16 about their level of enthusiasm for each candidate. Warren led the field at 35%, Sanders came in at 25% and Biden at 23%. In March, Warren was at 20%, Sanders at 28% and Biden at 33%. (Enthusiasm for Kamala Harris stood at 22% in March and has fallen to 13% in September.)

All of this is to say that primary voters are watching and they’re noticing.

Here are some responses to Biden’s comment on Twitter:

Joe think he’s running to be President of China maybe?

When you want to divide by two, but end up multiplying. And still get it wrong.

Democrats routinely count the recently deceased. Honest mistake.

That 720 million women number is AFTER Joe cures cancer. #MakingSenseWithJoe

Yikes! The US population is 330 million but Joe Biden says a child tax credit would put 720 million women back in the workforce.

On Tuesday, the Trump campaign released a video montage of Biden’s recent stumbles. It’s a collection of his greatest hits interspersed with journalist commentary. Watch the video.
