Unfathomable: Alyssa Milano Tweets for Gun Control, Pulls the Trigger Against Basic Common Sense

Some people can’t understand the concept of defending oneself against deadly attacks.

On Sunday, actress-turned-ill-informed-political-bullhorner Alyssa Milano tweeted the following:

“BREAKING: UNFATHOMABLE! The NRA is seeking MORE constitutional protection for guns. While McConnell is doing nothing to protect us from gun violence, Dem Senators are filing an amicus brief tomorrow in the Supreme Court to stop them.”

“Unfathomable.”

Odd; it’s unfathomable that she thinks it’s unfathomable.

The outspoken tweeter notes the need to “protect us from gun violence.”

Ultimately, there’s only one thing that can protect us from gun violence: gun violence.

That’s the whole point of being able to own a firearm for self-defense.

That’s why the police carry them — there’s no other way to adequately protect themselves from bad guys who have guns and won’t obey the murder laws.

Shouldn’t the fact that there’s a black thing with a handle and trigger on the hip of every cop clue people into what’s the best defense against gun violence?

It’s like Ice-T said: “I’ll give up my guns when everyone else [gives up theirs].”

The reason we have mass murder is that some people won’t obey the law against it.

And that leaves us with a significant question: How do you protect yourself against people who don’t obey the law?

Some on the Left have an answer: Make a law.

I’ll say that again, because the nonsensical nature of it bears repeating: Some on the Left believe the way to trip up and score over those who don’t obey the law is to snare them with…a law.

BOOM!

Mission accomplished.



via GIPHY

How is it possible someone could think that?

They’re not listening to the question.

The answer is “the right to defend oneself.” With equal or greater armament.

You cannot be protected by a law from those who don’t obey laws.

Can someone get this on a T-shirt, and fast? Or write it in the sky? How can the message be delivered to those who believe the very thing someone won’t do is the very thing they will always do?

You can’t defend yourself against an attacker with garlic unless they’re Dracula. You can’t protect yourself against an assaulter with Kryptonite unless they’re Superman. You can’t fight back against an assailant with water unless they’re the aliens from Signs or the Wicked Witch of the West.

And you can’t defend against an attacker with a law unless they’re a law-abiding citizen.

To not understand this is…unfathomable.

Most “Assault Rifles”…Aren’t.

Most Assault Rifles…Aren’t.

Today’s offering is a little different than most of my usual pieces. It also has some different objectives. Today’s article is not meant so much to inform, as it is to provide some handy source material for Conservatives, most of whom already know most of this. The other objective, is my continuing effort to take back the language from the leftists, who as we all know, use the language to distort the terms of the discussion to their advantage while manipulating the voting public. In that regard, this will not be an exciting read, but I do hope it helps our team in the public debate regarding the Second Amendment.

Today, we are going talk about the Modern Sporting Rifle, commonly, erroneously and maliciously referred to by the left as an “Assault Rifle” or “Military Style Weapon/Rifle.” Modern Sporting Rifle,” is the correct, accurate term for semi-automatic rifles in all calibers, built on the AR, AK and other frames like them. We need to always use that term when discussing these weapons.

Starting off, we need to define, scope and assess…just what does make an ordinary rifle, an “assault rifle.” I won’t address “Military Style,” other than to scoff at The folks who use that term. “Style” never killed anyone. You should do the same.

To properly assess features and capabilities that define a real “assault rifle,” we need to start with two authors, one fairly famous and one famous only to military historians. I am talking about German Field Marshal and Patton nemesis, Erwin Rommel along with British Lieutenant Colonel John English. Rommel and English each wrote books on Infantry tactics, Rommel; Infantry Attacks and English; On Infantry.

Each of these warriors devoted significant ink to the battlefield environment in “the last 300 yards” to the objective. They wrote of an environment that required extreme maneuverability coupled with maximum firepower for an attacking Infantry unit to punch through a defender’s position and if necessary take that position at bayonet point.

Although never specifically defined, both Rommel and English implied the need for the following characteristics in a standard Infantry weapon: Lightweight, Rapid firing, Rugged, Bayonet Stud and Easily Maintained.

Another factor often overlooked in this analysis of capability, is the era a particular rifle was used in combat. What was once a state of the art Infantry rifle in one era, would be merely an interesting collectible today. One example of this is the Brown Bess Musket, standard issue for British Regulars and quite rightly credited with helping Great Britain establish and maintain a world wide Pax Brittanica. Back in the day, it was Great Britain’s “assault rifle.” Today, a very pricy collectible.

The Brown Bess shown above was for its time, lightweight and fast loading, enabling British Commanders to maintain a high volume of fire. Of course it mounted a bayonet…all 17 inches.

Moving forward a few decades The standard U.S. Infantry “assault rifle,” became the Springfield Arms 1903, pictured above. The ‘03 was a bolt action, lightweight weapon with a high rate of fire for its time. Note the bayonet lug. The Springfield ‘03 stayed in service throughout World War II as its eventual replacement the M-1 Garand, a semi automatic rifle, was initially not in sufficient production to equip all U.S Forces.

Now we come to Vietnam and the M-16A1 pictured above. The M-16 is a select fire weapon capable of firing in both the semi and full automatic modes. It also has a bayonet lug. notice how the rate of fire has dramatically increased over the decades, going from 3 rounds per minute, to over 800 rounds per minute on today’s more sophisticated weapons.

The M16 has had a number of successors, the most common from my last years in the Green Machine, was the M-4. The M4, pictured below, has is also capable of select fire—semi automatic and 3 round burst. It also has a bayonet lug.

We have discussed the most critical features of an Infantry Assault Rifle—especially the features that make the weapon more lethal. Next up in this discussion, are some other features that the military finds helpful, but really don’t add to the weapon’s lethality, although they do help Leftists scare people with terms like “Military Style Assault Weapons.”

Here are some of those features:

Flash Hiders or Muzzle Brakes: These diminish the flash signature when the rifle is fired. They add not one drop of lethality to the weapon or its ammunition. Using them as a criterion that prohibits civilian ownership is foolish.

Pistol Grip: These make it easier to control the rifle and more accurately engage targets. Again, they do not make the rifle or its ammunition any more lethal.

Threaded barrel, which makes it capable of mounting a flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer, none of which enhance the lethality of the weapon

Folding or telescoping stocks: Make transportation and use in confined areas easier. No impact on lethality.

Detachable Magazines: Enable a higher rate of fire. By doing so, they can have an affect on lethality, but have been around a long time, used on a variety of weapons that don’t have the “scary look” that black metal Modern Sporting Rifles do.

Modern Sporting Rifles are not “Weapons of War” as touted by Democrats and other leftists. They are missing the two most important features and capabilities that are required in today’s era Military Assault Rifle, Bayonet Lugs and select Semi/Full/Burst fire.

Here is a picture of my AR-15. As you can see, it has no Bayonet Lug and by the close up, has only one firing mode…semi-automatic. It is a Modern Sporting Rifle. At no time, has any Army anywhere used this platform as its standard Infantry weapon.

Conclusion. Leftists use scary language to manipulate the voters into banning weapons that are no more lethal than a standard hunting rifle. They lie, obfuscate the truth and misuse emotion. They truly have absolutely no regard for the welfare of Americans. They believe that is just fine and dandy to deny law abiding American citizens the means of self defense. Their objective is quite clear, to disarm the populace in order to make it easier to control.

One way we can resist this, is to take back control of the language. Stop using their terms. No conservative should ever use the term “assault rifle” unless in quotes, along with a phrase that states that the term is a false, leftist term. The term we all need to start using is, “Modern Sporting Rifle.” Remember, when we cede the terms of the debate to the leftists…we lose. Modern. Sporting. Rifle.

As I said in the beginning, this article isn’t much on entertainment. It’s real purpose is to be a container of useful information to Conservatives. I hope it serves that purpose for you. In any case, please drop “assault rifle” from your lexicon (unless you are scoffing at leftist ignorance). Modern. Sporting. Rifle.

Joe Biden Takes to The New York Times with Words That Resound the Most & Mean the Least – Presidency Over Principle

Westlake Legal Group submachine-gun-62902_1280-620x404 Joe Biden Takes to The New York Times with Words That Resound the Most & Mean the Least – Presidency Over Principle Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

On Sunday, former Vice President Joe Biden spiked a pickaxe into the stone in his continued strike at 2020 glory by publishing a New York Times op-ed with virtually no substance.

The title:

Banning Assault Weapons Works – That’s Why, as President, I Will Push to Ban Them Again

Here’s a piece:

We have to get these weapons of war off our streets. Nearly 70 percent of the American public support a ban on assault weapons — including 54 percent of Republicans.

When you have that kind of broad public support for legislation that will make their families safer, and it still can’t get through the Senate — the problem is with weak-willed leaders who care more about their campaign coffers than children in coffins.

And here’s why it’s dumb: Most violent crimes are committed with handguns. Most gun deaths are caused by handguns.

Not rifles.

If stopping violent death from firearms was the goal, and if banning hollow projectile-launching tubes was the appropriate method, the correct move would be to go after the little guys.

But if the mission was, instead, to do whatever would sound the most sensational and incendiary, that would have very little effect on crime — if the idea was to do something loud and lame…the obvious grandiose grab would be “weapons of war.”

The distinction makes no sense, but it sounds alarming. What is a weapon of war?

Soldiers in war have handguns. And knives.

The AR-15 is America’s most popular hunting rifle.

Consider data from Mother Jones, relayed by The Daily Wire:

  • 50% of the 114 mass shootings committed in the United States from 1982 – 2019 were committed using only handguns.
  • 12.2% of the 114 mass shootings committed in the United States from 1982 – 2019 were committed using only rifles.
  • 24.5% of the 114 mass shootings committed in the United States from 1982 – 2019 were committed using a mix of handguns and rifles together (some shotguns, and other firearms as well).
  • Of the 934 deaths in mass shootings from 1982 – 2019, 385 (41.2%) happened in shootings in which handguns were the only firearms used.
  • Of the 934 deaths in mass shootings from 1982 – 2019, 182 (19.4%) happened in shootings in which rifles were the only firearms used.
  • Of the 934 deaths in mass shootings from 1982 – 2019, 367 (38.3%) happened in shootings in which a mix of firearms were used.

And that’s mass shootings, which are far more rare than smaller-victim-group incidents. According to the FBI, from 2013 – 2017, 66.2% of all gun murders in the U.S. were committed with handguns. Only 3.25% were employed rifles.

If Joe intends to appeal to the ignorant and emotional — and that isn’t necessarily a poor political strategy — he should continue along his current path.

Otherwise, he may wanna look into doing things that address the problems of the country, instead of offering up pointless political posturing — which is a problem all its own.

Burger King Employees Get What’s Comin’ to ‘Em After Drawing a Pig on a Cop’s Sandwich Wrapper

Westlake Legal Group hamburger-1238246_1280-620x466 Burger King Employees Get What’s Comin’ to ‘Em After Drawing a Pig on a Cop’s Sandwich Wrapper Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

At a southwest Burger King, some employees thought it’d be cool to really sock it to the man.

That would be, man in blue.

But it didn’t go as they may’ve hoped.

A cop ordered up a meaty delight at the royal restaurant — and I gotta say, a Whopper is absolutely delicious — in Clovis, New Mexico.

But the sloppy sustenance he received came beefed up by some slighting sausage: Some goon had drawn a pig on the wrapper.

Officer Timo Rosenthal posted a photo to Facebook, supplemented by the caption “When you order food in uniform.”

He posted:

“Well, while on lunch break (and in uniform) I ordered food at Burger King and received this. The patties were burnt and the burger was of very poor quality. Guess that was the last time I ate at Burger King in Clovis, NM.”

Well, while on lunch break (and in uniform) I ordered food at Burger King and received this. The patties were burnt and…

Posted by Timo Rosenthal on Thursday, August 8, 2019

A spokesperson for the burger bistro commented to Fox News on the indignity:

“What occurred is unacceptable and not in line with our brand values.  When made aware of the incident, the restaurant owner immediately reached out to the officer involved to apologize…”

BK’s trying to make it good:

“The restaurant is offering free meals to uniformed officers and will provide a catered lunch to the police department as a gesture of goodwill.”

The Clovis Chief of Police told Albuquerque’s KRQE he’s disappointed that any of his crew would be disrespected.

You may be glad to know that the parties responsible for the picture of pork were fired.

And you may be shocked to learn that the hogwash was hatched by five of ’em.

Isn’t that virtually the entire crew at any given time at a Burger King??

If I was a cop, every day of my career, I think I’d take my lunch.

In Order to Save the Planet, President Jair Bolsonaro Asks Brazilians to Hold in Every Bowel Movement for Two Days

Westlake Legal Group time-3306753_1280-620x219 In Order to Save the Planet, President Jair Bolsonaro Asks Brazilians to Hold in Every Bowel Movement for Two Days Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

In 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt told America, “All we have to fear is fear itself.”

JFK advised, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”

Bill Clinton’s message to the nation: “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.”

And let’s not forget this zinger, courtesy of the man to whom Hillary Clinton chooses to give all her soft, supple lovin’:

“All Americans…are rightly disturbed by the large numbers illegal aliens entering our country. That’s why our administration has moved aggressively…by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before. … [W]e will try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens…”

If you could speak to all your fellow countrymen and deliver just one message, what would it be?

For Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, perhaps she’d plead with all the cows — “Please, for the love of Pete, please, please just stop farting.”

The leader of Brazil recently took a similar approach: He beseeched the citizenry to keep from dropping their patriotic pants. If they wanna do their duty, they can’t do their doodie.

Seriously, just (don’t) doo it.

A reporter recently asked President Jair Bolsonaro how to balance protecting the earth with developing necessary agriculture.

Jair offered two pieces of advice: Eat a little bit less; and don’t poop every day.

Tighten up; it’ll still be there tomorrow.

The journalist’s question came in response to a recent report that Brazil’s Amazonian deforestation — along with its agricultural processes — is responsible for a quarter of the planet’s greenhouse effect.

Now Jair’s fired the head of that reporting agency. And he wants Brazilians to keep from firing a missile:

“It’s enough to eat a little less. You talk about environmental pollution. It’s enough to poop every other day. That will be better for the whole world.”

Please, people: Keep your killer turds from attacking Earth.

Karen Townsend of Hot Air had a bit to report on the directive. Here she is:

I can understand the “eat a little less” part of Bolsonaro’s off-the-cuff solutions if the intention is to utilize less land for agricultural purposes. It’s the suggestion that Brazilians poop “every other day” that puzzles me. Is it to limit the use of toilet paper, thus lessening the need for wood by-products? Is it like the environmental wackos who encourage limiting toilet paper use to a square or two? Eating less would decrease the need to poop but I’m not falling for that line of thinking.

Individual pooping habits vary. Some people may do it three times a day, some may do it every other day, but dictating personal bathroom habits isn’t the job of a nation’s leader. I can’t believe I looked up some information on this but I did. My first reaction that this suggestion can’t be a healthy one may be correct.

A 2010 study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology found that 98 percent of its participants pooped between 3 times per week to 3 times daily.

Deviating significantly from the regular pattern may still be considered healthy, but it can also indicate the development of a stomach or bowel problem.

Right. I don’t mean to encourage anyone to absolutely blow up the planet like the Death Star of Dumpin’…and I don’t mean to sound as if I hate my country…but holding ’til Tuesday what you need to do on Monday ain’t a good idea. When it comes to crapping, as Dinah Washington sang, “What a difference a day makes.”

With all due respect to the uptight, anal environmentalists of the world, anyone who thinks people should resist the urge to empty their bowels for the betterment of humanity…is full of it.

Unless you’re this guy.

Pat Sajak Reminds Us of the Omniscience of Celebrity But Drops a Bomb, & This Roundup of His Tweets’ll Do You Right

Westlake Legal Group hollywood-sign-1598473_1280-620x413 Pat Sajak Reminds Us of the Omniscience of Celebrity But Drops a Bomb, & This Roundup of His Tweets’ll Do You Right Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

The world of celebrity tweeting, in my opinion, doesn’t offer a lot in the way of wit and wisdom. For the most part, they’re singers and actors — not writers.

But one famous face consistently fires ’em off on social media, and that pithy pistolier is Pat Sajak.

On Friday, the Wheel of Fortune host reminded us that celebs know best. He also offered a bit of the hard knocks — we may have to use our own brains:

“As you probably know, we celebrities are uniquely qualified to tell you how to live and what to think, and I take that responsibility seriously. I’m working hard, and I expect to have my list of rules available in a week or so. Meantime, just do your best on your own.”

Tough, but most likely good advice.

Pat dished similarly wry words of wisdom in the aftermath of 2017’s Las Vegas massacre, during which anti-gun rhetoric was shootin’ off Tinseltown like the bulleted battles constantly featured in their furiously-firing films:

Want more from Pat? The Daily Wire’s compiled some of the most notable indications that the witty TV man’s got his feet on the ground. And his fingers on the pulse of America.

Can you imagine a world where all the rich and famous had this kind of down-to-earth ability to laugh at themselves?

I can’t (see here), but it’s fun to pretend.

Pat reminds me of what a wise movie star once said about his own fame and fortune:

“I get the joke.”

Great and endearing attitude. And thanks for the pep talk, Pat.

The 8-location Anna’s was “voted #1 Best Breakfast in Michigan.” But in April, it coughed up $15,000 to joint fundraising committee Trump Victory.

This whole hubbub began when 30-year-old Facebooker Doug Chu shared a screenshot of Anna’s FEC documentation.

“[I]t was shared on Wednesday and shared it to his personal Facebook page. It’s since been shared hundreds of times, mostly by people upset to learn about the restaurant chain’s support of the President.”

Perhaps surprisingly, Mr. Chu’s all about his religious responsibility:

“My political beliefs, at their core, come from being a Christian. More specifically, from studying the Bible and and paying attention to the kind of society God wants people to live in, as well as from working to apprentice myself to Jesus’ teachings on how to treat other people.”

But eaterie owner Josh Beckett isn’t ashamed of what he did. He released a statement to that effect:

“I am proud to live in a country where we are free to have different opinions and to support a candidate of our choice. At Anna’s House, we employ and serve people of all backgrounds and beliefs, without judgement. Our goal is to treat everyone like family – and in families, there are often differences of opinion. Embracing these differences and respecting each other despite them is what makes our country great. If you are looking for an open, supportive, and accepting place to enjoy a great meal and conversation, Anna’s House is here for you.”

That reminds me of what Brad Pitt’s brother, Doug, said about his conservative Christian family, in contrast with the agnostic liberal actor:

“You know, I think moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world. So why would our family be any different? There can be healthy discussion when people disagree with you. The bad thing is when it turns to venom and negativity, and we don’t have that in our family. It’s open discussion. We can learn from each other and, if anything, it solidifies your point. Or maybe you learn something.”

What a beautiful thing. Doug is exactly right. That’s the way family should be, including the American family.

But some aren’t for it.

Kent County Republican Party Chair Joel Freeman told Fox 17 what he thinks about that, as it relates to orange juice and waffles:

“Treating people with different political viewpoints as enemies to be eliminated is toxic and counterproductive. Anna’s House is a popular locally-owned business that has found success serving delicious breakfasts that everyone can enjoy. It’s too bad that some would prefer division and strife over breaking bread, but that just means there’s more waffles for the rest of us.”

Of course, participating in boycotts is one’s right as a citizen. But in my view, if you’re refusing to get a pancake simply because you’ve heard that a company quietly and respectfully made a donation to a presidential campaign, you’re giving up palatable ecstasy for a wrong cause.

Eat the pancake — it’s delicious.

We Must DO Something! Well, Maybe Not.

Westlake Legal Group Capture-620x346 We Must DO Something! Well, Maybe Not. Uncategorized Front Page Stories
We Must DO Something! Well, Maybe Not.

Same old cycle. Some nutjob, in this case two nutjobs and one or two likely gang members, shoot dozens of people in El Paso, Dayton and let’s not forget Chicago, killing over thirty. Instantly came the cries, “We Must DO Something! We must do something; anything—even though it will likely not work. We must propose the very things that have failed in the past and will likely fail in the future. We must DO something!

This time is no different. We had three different mass shootings last weekend. The media and the Democrats, along with their RINO enablers are focused on only one of them, the shooting in El Paso, Texas. More on that in a moment.

The shooting in Dayton, Ohio was of interest to them, until it became apparent to the public that the shooter was a stone cold leftist and a supporter of Elizabeth Warren. So that event was quietly disappeared from the public discourse.

The third shooting, wasn’t hardly mentioned at all outside of local reporting. The Chicago mass shooting, likely gang related, occurred that same weekend. What did we hear form the national media? Crickets.

Back to El Paso. This is the one that the Democrats and the Media are focusing on—and they are demanding action and right now! Along with their opportunistic efforts to silence the President, the Democrats are also using the absolutely false narrative that there has been some massive increase in hate crimes committed by “evil white men.” The actual numbers show that such shootings have actually declined, as have the overall shooting numbers.

That’s not stopping the Democrats from moving even farther left in their gun control stance. Many of the 2020 Democrat Presidential contenders, are calling for outright confiscation of all Modern Sporting Rifles, which they inaccurately and misleadingly call “Military Style Assault Weapons.” More on terminology and controlling the debate in this coming Monday’s column.

Along with confiscation, the Democrats, once again assisted by weak Republicans who wish to curry favor with them are also demanding universal background checks and most dangerous of all, “Red Flag” legislation. Red Flag laws would allow your guns to be confiscated merely on the say so from friends or family that you constituted a danger. Constitutional protections during the enforcement of these laws vary from state to state, with some allowing confiscation before you have a chance to make your case. You are put in a position of having to spend your hard earned dollars on legal fees to prove you are not a threat before getting them back. Last time I checked, it’s supposed to take a judge and jury to abridge your Constitutional Rights, especially one that’s specifically enumerated in that powerful work of prose.

The point is, none of what any party to this discussion has yet proposed, would have stopped any of the three (remember it was three) mass shootings last weekend. Everything proposed so far, is just a feel good exercise. Look at us! We’re doing something!

What’s worse, in the greater scheme of things, rifles as a category of weapons, used in the commission of a murder constituted just 403 out of a total 15,129 according to the 2017 DOJ/FBO Uniform Crime Report (UCR). That’s 2.67 percent. One study claims that semi-automatic rifles were used in just 25 percent of mass shootings.

According to the UCR the following instruments were used more often to kill people than rifles of any type: Knives (1,591); Blunt objects, hammers, bats etc (467); and finally, Hands/Fists & Feet (696).

One more little data point. There are somewhere between 15 and 20 million Modern Sporting Rifles in America. Using the low number and assuming for the sake of argument that all the rifles in the 2017 UCR were Modern Sporting Rifles, 403 divided by 15 million means that less than 3 thousandths of a percent of the Modern Sporting Rifles in these United States, were used in the commission of a murder.

To wrap all of this up in a tidy bow, we are allowing the Leftists to use the emotion of the moment to manipulate the public into supporting legislation that will abridge the Constitutional rights of law abiding Americans with “solutions” that have already been proven ineffective. We are doing this in order to solve a statistically insignificant problem. Yes, I realize that if it were my two lovely daughters who were the victims, then emotion would likely color my thinking too. That’s why when it comes to the Enumerated Constitutional Rights of U.S. Citizens, we need to keep the emotion out of it.

Minor footnote: The last time the legal sovereign attempted to unlawfully confiscate weapons from Americans, it didn’t end well for that sovereign. On a cool Massachusetts morning, April 19, 1775…

Trump Grates Biden Like Cheese Over His Monumentally Mookish ‘Poor Kids’ Remark

Westlake Legal Group card-913191_1280-620x413 Trump Grates Biden Like Cheese Over His Monumentally Mookish ‘Poor Kids’ Remark Uncategorized rapid response director Race nbc Joe Biden Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump Campaigns andrew clark Andrea Mitchell Allow Media Exception 2020

 

 

During a campaign speech in Iowa Thursday, Joe Biden managed to push this over his bottom teeth:

“Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

Let’s do that again:

“Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

Take your time…

What’s weirder, people started to clap.

Then he added:

“Wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids. No, I really mean it. But think how we think about it.”

Huh?

As for the first part, what would the media have made of such a comment by Donald Trump?

Brett Kavanaugh?

George Bush?

Voldemort?– I’m just assuming he’s supposed to be a Republican.

As the President left for a fundraiser Friday, he recounted to White House reporters his reaction to Biden’s goof:

“He made that comment, I said, ‘Whoa.’”

Furthermore:

“This is not somebody you can have as your president. But if he got the nomination, I’d be thrilled.”

Classic Trump.

But not as much as this:

“Joe is not playing with a full deck.”

At least one member of the media tried to run cover for the former VP.

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell falsely charged the Trump campaign with cropping footage of Joe’s speech in order to unfairly give the appearance of a gooberish gaffe:

“Joe Biden, after a widely praised speech against the President 24 hours ago, is now facing a Trump campaign counter-attack, seizing on a few words on the campaign trail. The former vice president accusing the President of being a racist who emboldens white supremacists by aligning himself with their cause, but it’s Biden’s bungling of his own remarks that’s making headlines this morning.”

She then played Joe’s statement, in context:

“We should challenge these students. We should challenge students in these schools that have advanced placement programs in these schools. We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids. Wealthy kids. Black kids. Asian kids.”

Uhhh…it didn’t get better.

Oh, and also: The initial Trump clip actually included the full context.

Trump’s Rapid Response Director, Andrew Clark, laid it out:

Yep.

Joe seems poised for a whole lot more passes; I predicted as much. A Republican with his record might never had made it this far: After all, he’s already said he’ll “be damned” if he pays reparations. And he’s called gays “security risks.” Let Voldemort try that.

FBI Arrests Alleged Would-Be Neo-Nazi Terrorist Before He Can Commit Mass Murder at a Las Vegas Synagogue

Westlake Legal Group synagogue-2441038_1280-620x410 FBI Arrests Alleged Would-Be Neo-Nazi Terrorist Before He Can Commit Mass Murder at a Las Vegas Synagogue Uncategorized Terrorism racism Race National Socialist Movement las vegas joint terrorism task force LAS VEGAS Guns Front Page Stories Featured Story FBI crime atomwaffen division Allow Media Exception abc action news aaron rouse

 

 

The U.S. Attorney’s Office released a statement Friday revealing details of a Las Vegas security guard’s arrest.

The 23-year-old’s been “charged by a criminal complaint with one count of possession of an unregistered firearm – namely, the component parts of a destructive device.”

That’d be…like one of these:

As per the 11-page criminal complaint lodged against him, the man was allegedly engaged in encrypted communication with those identifying with the National Socialist Movement in order to attack a synagogue in the desert town. Additionally, he may have been surveilling an LGBTQ-friendly bar for nefarious reasons.

What’s the NSM all about? According to the District of Nevada Attorney’s Office, it’s this:

Members believe in the superiority of the white race and have a common goal of challenging the established laws, social order, and government via terrorism and other violent acts.

Tampa Bay’s ABC Action News reports that the Las Vegas Joint Terrorism Task Force began investigating the man in April, after it was learned he was messaging with neo-Nazi organization Atomwaffen Division.

The guy’s got uncanny taste in friends.

During a search, officials discovered “a notebook with several hand-drawn schematics for a potential Las Vegas-area attack.” Also drawn: “timed explosive devises.”

Yeah — this guy could use an intervention.

It just keeps getting worse — in his bedroom, law enforcement found bomb parts and explosive-friendly chemicals. Bonus: an “AR-15-style rifle and a bolt-action rifle.”

Definitely intervention material.

The guns were impounded.

Here’s what FBI Las Vegas Division Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse had to say about all this:

“The FBI’s Las Vegas Joint Terrorism Task Force is committed to protecting our community from any threat of domestic terrorism and I could not be more proud of the work they did in this case. … As this complaint illustrates, the FBI will always be proactive to combat threats that cross a line from free speech to potential violence.”

Assuming the charges are accurate, thank God agencies intercepted the man and his efforts. We could’ve been soon reading about the death and destruction he caused. Instead, we’re finding out he faces up to a decade in prison.

Law enforcement took care of business.

Surely right now, there are other would-be terrorists. As George W. Bush directed after 9/11, we must stay vigilant. Observe and report. For most every evil deed, I believe, there were signs not taken seriously enough to prevent it.

But the citizens of Las Vegas can sleep a little bit more soundly tonight, knowing an armed and dangerous aspiring assassin is behind bars.

Now are you ready to see the guy? He already made the headlines, back in 2016. Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Conor Climo, your trusty neighborhood watchman:
