The Streisand Effect. Palmetto State Armory Is Introducing the No-Beto AR-15 Kit Just In Time For Christmas

You’ve probably heard of the Streisand effect. That’s the phenomenon where trying to suppress information (or a product) results in more interest in that information or product. In my personal life I first encountered it in its reverse form around age 10 or 11 when the Old Man brought home a pack of cigarettes, had me and my brother take a few puffs, and announced that if we liked it he’d buy them for us and let us smoke at home. I’ve never had urge to smoke.

During last week’s Democrat debate, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke announced that he was 100% going to confiscated all semi-automatic rifles.

(Bonchie has all the details in Beto O’Rourke Is Coming For Your Fully Semi-Automatic Grenade Launcher.)

What started out as a war cry for the gun grabbers has now becoming a marketing plan for gun sellers. SisterToldjah has the epic story of a Arizona gun dealer who created a sales event based on Beto’s threat AZ Gun Store Owner Responds To Beto’s ‘Hell Yes’ By Offering ‘Beto Specials’ – And Sells Out Of AR-15s, AK-47s. People who had never considered buying a semi-automatic modern sporting rifle were suddenly buying them. (I, myself, have convinced my wife to let me blow the family food budget on a knockoff of the FN-FAL in .308-caliber to show solidarity with “muh rednecks.”)

Now Palmetto State Armory is offering a customization kit. If you own an AR-15 of its equivalent, for the low, low price of $49.99 you can convert it to the NOBETO-15.

Now the order page has this warning

*This is a Pre-order item. Due to unprecedented demand related to the recent political events, please expect lowers to start shipping within 8-9 weeks of order placement.*

This is not going to be the killer slogan that O’Rourke had anticipated. Many of his colleagues are angry at him for giving away the game. Middle of the road gun owners now clearly see what the end game is and the will resist. Those of us who actively support gun rights are going to follow Kurt Schilichter’s advice: “Buy guns and ammo.”

Beto O’Rourke’s controversial plan to take away certain types of guns should he become elected president has turned out to be as motivating -if not more so – for gun owners than President Barack Obama’s anti-gun stances.

At last week’s Democratic debate, O’Rourke 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:

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.

In response to Beto’s declaration, one gun store owner in Arizona decided to offer a ‘Beto Special’ on AR-15s and AK-47s – and the response was overwhelming:

When O’Rourke made the claim during Thursday night’s Democrat presidential candidate debate, Alpha Dog Firearms Owner Matt Boggs was outraged, he says in an interview with The HolloNet:

“I saw the comments that he made, and I was kinda like, ‘You know what: the Hell with this guy.’”

Boggs said O’Rourke’s made [him] determined to sell more guns – even if it meant losing money on them. So, the next morning he announced his “Beto Specials” on AR15 and AK47 rifles on his store’s Facebook page:

That evening, the store announced that they had sold out in less than four hours:

UPDATE: SOLD OUT. More deals will be on the website soon. Y’all broke our internet today!!!

Our $349.99 AR deal sold out in less than 4 hours. We’re trying to process the orders and work on getting more special deals for our good friend gun grabber Beto

As Beto gets louder on this issue, look for more gun specials from gun store owners, and a higher demand for the types of weapons he wants to confiscate. As we learned during the Obama administration, tacking to the far left on gun control usually means increased sales at gun stores. These types of threats typically have a galvanizing effect on gun owners and spurs them them to stock up.

This is most certainly not what Beto O’Rourke intended when he announced his gun confiscation policy, but that is what happens when you’re someone like Beto who doesn’t think your policies through.

Snopes.com Lies and Creates Fake News About the Felicity Huffman School Bribery Case

Westlake Legal Group felicity-huffman-620x317 Snopes.com Lies and Creates Fake News About the Felicity Huffman School Bribery Case tanya mcdowell Snopes.com Snopes Politics Media Front Page Stories Felicity Huffman Featured Story fake news douchebaggery democrats crime Connecticut College Cheating Scandal California Allow Media Exception

FILE – In this Jan. 16, 2006 file photo, Felicity Huffman wears a Marchesa gown at the 63rd Annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif. The luxe womenswear brand Marchesa may not survive the horrors of Harvey Weinstein, the estranged husband of co-founder Georgina Chapman. The company on Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018, canceled its scheduled Feb. 14 show at New York Fashion Week after a decade of presenting collections there. And there’s been a Marchesa blackout on red carpets as awards season winds down. (AP Photo/Kevork Djansezian, File)

On Friday, has-been actress Felicity Huffman was sentenced to two weeks in federal prison. Her crime, such as it was, was to donate some $15K to a “charitable foundation” (astonishingly the foundation did not have Clinton in the name). The “donation” actually paid for a ringer to take the SAT on behalf of Huffman’s daughter to enable her to get into an selective college. And Huffman pocketed a tax write off. I was not one of the ones cheering about this. My first thought was “great, this means that real crime has been eradicated and now we’re down to using federal law enforcement for virtue signaling.” Just the exposure, by itself, destroyed Huffman’s relationship with her kids, probably prevented the daughter she tried to help from ever getting into any real college and shamed her for life by her name being connected to the scandal. Huffman should have been hit by a civil IRS lien for the 15K and that should have been it. I feel this way about everyone involved in this. The parents are shamed, the kids are shamed even among their friends, they will carry this scarlet letter forever, the coaches are out of work forever, the scammers have been exposed. That is justice. But that is not the society which we have built.

I was raised in a fairly down-in-the-heels section of Virginia. It was a place where the social class structure was pretty damned rigid and it was accepted that those “with” would always stick together to the disadvantage of those “without.” As I’ve recounted several times, my options upon finishing high school were chopping tobacco, working in a furniture mill, or working in a textile factory…or getting the hell out of Dodge. Much to my surprise other supposedly smart folks were shocked to learn that wealthy people and connected people actually used connections and broke rules to help their kids get a leg up. They labored under the illusion that Chelsea Clinton and her ilk were some kind of virtuosos who just stumbled into their 6-figure jobs fresh out of an elite college because they were just so damned smart and talented. These are the people who were shocked and offended by this college scandal. Bottom line, I don’t have the time and energy to care what a handful of rich people to to advance their whelps into the upper classes. This has no impact on me or mine. This is not who we are.

But the great thing about America is that there is virtually no social ill that cannot somehow be contorted enough to become an example of racism.

If everything it racism then this is definitely your story: A wealthy white woman gets two-weeks for her role in a cheating scandal and a poor black woman gets 5 years for enrolling her kid in a different school district. And if you are sufficiently woke, this is freakin catnip.

Then Snopes got into the act. Snopes, if you aren’t familiar with their work, is the highly woke fact checking website that is currently engaged in some kind of vendetta with the satire website Babylon Bee. This is their rating.

The problem is that this is not merely false, it is an outright lie.

Here are the facts.

McDowell, who claimed she was homeless, was arrested for larceny after she signed an affidavit attesting to her residency at a different address to enroll her kid in a different school district. Reading between the lines here, this sounds like McDowell was a pain in the butt to the public housing development where she lived and they used the fraudulent affidavit as a reason to evict her (or ban her from the premises because the story is convoluted). The cops just became the pivot man in this circle jerk.

The police investigation into the residency began in January after Norwalk Housing Authority attorney Donna Lattarulo filed a complaint alleging McDowell registered her son at Brookside, but actually lived in an apartment on Priscilla Street in Bridgeport.

As part of the evidence presented in the complaint, police received an affidavit of residency signed by McDowell and dated last September attesting that she lived in the Roodner Court public housing complex on Ely Ave.

Before this charge was acted on, other things happened.

Several weeks later, she was arrested for selling drugs to Norwalk undercover officers on five occasions in Norwalk and Bridgeport.

When she was picked up on the drug charges, police found her in front of Brookside Elementary School holding 30 small bags of marijuana and 23 small bags of crack cocaine, prosecutor Tiffany Lockshier said during her sentencing hearing.

In Bridgeport, McDowell pleaded guilty earlier this month to two counts of sale of narcotics to undercover officers in Bridgeport and when she is sentenced on March 27, faces up to five years in jail for those convictions.

Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school. Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school. Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school. Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school. I’ll say it again. Selling narcotics in front of an elementary school.

When she appeared in court she pleaded guilty to the drug charges and entered an Alford plea to the larceny charge. The judge made it clear that he was sentencing her based on the drug deal alone:

That case drew protests by residents and civil rights groups who claimed McDowell was being persecuted for her attempt to get a better education for her son.

[Superior Court Judge Frank] Iannotti retorted Tuesday that the Norwalk case had nothing to do with why McDowell was before him.

“This case is about the convictions for the sale of narcotics to an undercover police officer,” the judge said. “I think you understand that because that is really the essence of what has gotten you into the predicament you find yourself today.”

On the two counts of sale of narcotics, the judge then sentenced her to 12 years, suspended after she serves five years and followed by five years probation. The sentence is to run concurrently with a five-year sentence she received in the Norwalk case.

“When you are released, go back to doing an honest living and become a role model for your son,” the judge added.

The Snopes fact check is simply a lie. Period. Full stop. Felicity Huffman got two weeks in prison for cheating to get her kid into a good school. McDowell got five years for selling narcotics in a school zone. These are not the same thing. They aren’t even in the same universe of criminal acts.

Sad to say, this is not unusual behavior for Snopes. One hopes this noxious bunch of self-righteous, if deeply dishonest, twits gets put out of business. And soon. Because they are the real problem with #FakeNews on the internet.

Meet Andrew McCabe’s Laughable “Character Witnesses”

If you’ve been keeping up with the latest news on Andrew McCabe, you know that he’s now facing prosecution for “lacking candor” (lying) to the FBI. In what was the first shoe to drop within the Comey cabal, McCabe’s last minute appeal to not have the law applied to him failed. Keep in mind, lying to the FBI is the same law he, Comey, and Mueller relentlessly used to bludgeon others into submission.

But these people feel like they are part of a special class, and who could blame them? For as long as they’ve been in government, they’ve gotten to play by different rules. Naturally, that means the swamp is going to try to circle the wagons and McCabe has some “character witnesses” he’d like you to meet.

NEW: If Andrew McCabe ultimately does face charges, he’ll have some big names lined up as character witnesses. Over a dozen high-ranking ex-officials have committed to defending him, including Eric Holder, John Brennan, James Clapper and Susan Rice. https://t.co/i6j2G8ctfK

— Natasha Bertrand (@NatashaBertrand) September 16, 2019

This per Politico.

A cavalcade of Obama-era national security leaders have committed to testify on behalf of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should he face trial over allegations that he misled officials about leaks to the media.

The lineup, detailed in a legal analysis from McCabe’s legal team, the substance of which was provided to the Justice Department, includes a string of former senior officials.

Here’s a good, concise response to this madness.

There is no doubt McCabe broke the law. The Inspector General found ample evidence he lied to investigators in his dealings with leaks to the press. In fact, his story was in direct contradiction to James Comey, which means Comey may be forced to testify against him to avoid charges himself.

Despite the clearness of the situation, these Obama officials are ready to rally around him. Doesn’t that tell us all we need to know about their corruption? That not even a non-partisan IG report from an Obama appointee (IG Horowitz) is enough for them to abandon someone like McCabe? Opposing Trump, even if one is a criminal, covers all sins.

Honestly, I’m thinking these four vouching for McCabe in court only makes things worse for him. They are a group of proven liars. Prosecutors would have a field day with them.

Women’s March Fires Anti-Semites, Immediately Hires More Anti-Semites

Westlake Legal Group linda-sarsour-620x414 Women’s March Fires Anti-Semites, Immediately Hires More Anti-Semites Women's March Tamika Mallory racists Politics New Anti-Semites media bias Louis Farrakhan Linda Sarsour Israel Hired Front Page Stories Front Page fired Featured Story democrats board members

It’s almost like the organization itself has issues and their connections to anti-Semitism haven’t just been mistakes?

As my colleague Brandon Morse shared earlier today, the Women’s March, famous for their delusional hatred of Trump and vaginal hats, finally cut ties with Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory (among others). The former board members had carried with them a long history of anti-Semitism and support for radical ideologies. Sarsour is of course a “Palestinian activist,” which means she rails against Jews and shills for Hamas. Mallory’s ties centered on Louis Farrakhan, where as recently as this year she refused to condemn his vile, racist rhetoric.

So what’s the Women’s March do after kicking out a group of women famous for their anti-Semitism? Hire more anti-Semites of course.

Bonus points for supporting Hamas I guess.

And just to be safe, they also brought on Sarsour ally Samia Assed, who’s shilled for Palestinian terrorists and doesn’t think Israel has a right to exist.

Oh, but it doesn’t stop there. The brilliant hires just kept on coming.

Apparently being a rabid anti-Semite and a fan of Louis Farahkan is a prerequisite for being on the board of the Women’s March. Clearly, they weren’t serious about reforming their dumpster fire of a movement. The best thing that could happen is for it shut down completely. The country is a better place given their loss of influence over the last few years.

Meanwhile, you won’t hear a peep about any of this in the major press despite the fact that they ran non-stop live coverage anytime there was a march by these people in the past. Imagine if a tea party group brought on a bunch of open white supremacists. You think CNN would mention it? You bet they would.

In the immediate aftermath of the “report” from the New York Times over the weekend about an old-turned-new sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a number of high-profile Democratic politicians and candidates for president weighed in and demanded his impeachment.

This in spite of the fact that the correction the paper issued hours after they were first alerted to it by conservative new media noted that the alleged victim does not even recall the alleged incident.

This is also in spite of the fact that the person who made the allegation originally is a Clinton-era liberal lawyer who has a vested interest in destroying Kavanaugh (which naturally calls into question the lawyer’s motivations):

We won’t even dwell on the fact that it was a liberal lawyer—one who happened to have been pitted against Kavanaugh during the Bill Clinton impeachment hearings—who opportunistically claims to have recalled this 35-year-old incident and reported it to the FBI.

As we all know, facts don’t care about your feelings, but Democrats don’t care about the facts. So the beat rolled on well into Monday with more Democrats lining up to board the “Impeach Kavanaugh” train, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY).

Apparently AOC didn’t want to waste the opportunity to insert herself into the debate, and she did so by posting a video clip of her during her 2018 campaign trashing highly educated “rich” men like Kavanaugh who she claimed “believed” they could get away with sexual assault.

While it’s not odd for Ocasio-Cortez to go the narcissistic route by making herself a focal point of any debate, what was odd about her tweets this morning about Kavanaugh is that she initially deleted the first one:

11 minutes after jtLOL noted she had deleted her original tweet, AOC reposted an identical one:

She followed up with another one from that same speech, because AOC has rarely seen a video of herself that she didn’t like.

But why did she delete her first tweet initially? This explanation from Free Beacon’s Alex Griswold is the only one that makes sense:

Yep. Might as well roll with it. Gotta get those RTSs, likes, and all the media attention that goes along with them.

In any event, no matter the reason for deleting and reposting, Ocasio-Cortez got dunked in the comments:

I want to believe that. I really do.

Ted Cruz Destroys NY Times Over Kavanaugh Smear, Says It Confirms the Paper’s Bias and Political Agenda

As I wrote earlier today, the New York Times has been rightly taken to the woodshed the last two days after a thinly sourced hit piece they did over the weekend on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh fell apart once The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway scrutinized the piece and found a crucial point missing:

The paper issued a correction several hours after this was pointed out to them …

… but not before the damage was done, and not before numerous Democratic candidates for president jumped on board the “Impeach Kavanaugh” train.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who is no stranger to smears coming from the mainstream media, ripped the Times in a must-read Twitter rant earlier today.

He started off by noting that the Kavanaugh hit piece would have gotten a student an “F” in high school, insinuating the piece should have never gotten past the paper’s editors. Because it did, Cruz suggested this proves the Times has a “political agenda”:

There’s just no other explanation but bias, asserted Cruz, as to why the paper omitted the critical information about alleged victim Deborah Ramirez:

Will any of the 2020 presidential candidates retract or amend their calls for impeachment against Kavanaugh? Of course not, Cruz opined:

Cruz is right. There is no legitimate justification whatsoever for why the paper published the article they did on Kavanaugh without noting the alleged victim does not even recall the alleged incident.

As I speculated earlier, I suspect this piece was published for one reason and one reason only: To help Democrats in their efforts to intimidate the sitting conservative-leaning Justices on the Supreme Court to rule on future cases in their favor in hopes that once they do, the media and leftists will finally leave them alone.

Cruz is also right in stating that it’s highly unlikely the NYT would have issued a correction had it not been for Hemingway’s tweet. Stories like these are why it’s very important that conservative new media types keep up the pressure on mainstream media outlets to own up to their mistakes and deliberate falsehoods.

Otherwise, nine times out of ten the fake news will stand as the official media-driven “record” in place of the truth.
