Liberal Progressive bloggers exploit tragedy for political gain

To surmise, a tragic event took place in Florida; where a man, who had too much to drink, shot a woman in the forehead and she died. The original story is here. Here is the video report:

Well, the classless and uncouth progressive left is now exploiting this tragic event, for all it is worth for political reasons. Check out what the sleazeball leftist troll site, “Americans Against the Tea Party” wrote about this:

UNAPPROVED TITLE

Just another “responsible gun owner™!”

[…..]

It is unknown what his defense will be, if any. However, as this is Florida…all he really needs to do is say he felt threatened when she slapped him

Liberaland, which is owned by Fox News’s Alan Colmes covered it too; but without the idiotic and stupid snark.  But, just the same, the reason Colmes reported it, is because every time that there is some sort of accident involving a gun or a crime involving a gun; the liberal left just loves to link these stories and holler, “Lookie lookie lookie, another GUN crime; we need to outlaw them and get rid of the NRA!”

It is classless, it is uncouth, it is cynical and it is toxic. This mentality is precisely why I stopped voting for the Democrats. This mentality is not that of a fringe group; it is, in fact, the depraved mentality of 90% of the people in the Democratic Party anymore.  This is an Anti-Gun, Anti-White, Anti-Christian, Anti-Capitalism and Anti-American mentality. The Democrats mentality is, “Never let a crisis go to waste” or “Always exploit to make a political point.”

The truth is that the only real thing that is responsible for the shooting of Jamie Lee Martin is Elliott William Orsborn. Mr. Orsborn chose to possess a firearm, despite the fact that he had been convicted of a felony. Mr. Orsborn chose to carry his firearm, despite the fact that he was intoxicated. So, the blame lies with him; not the NRA, not Guns, and certainly not the Tea Party and its supporters. Of course, normal, clear minded people know these simple things. But, the left, who collectively have the minds of 2 year olds for the most part; do not understand such things.

Which is why I will NOT vote for them any longer. Because, quite frankly, stupid people should not be allowed to govern anything — much less be allowed to drive or run a computer.

Crazy!: NRA gets of a leaked DOJ memo that says Outlaw and Confiscate All Guns…

I will not link to Infowars directly, because of some stupid ad that pops up over there. Anyhow, this is frightening thing; that PDF is downloaded here. (Requires Adobe acrobat reader)

I have said this before, and I will say it again: Elections matter and voting for someone, who does not hold your values is not a smart idea. You libertarians that voted for this President; this is on you all. Nothing like this would have ever been considered, if John McCain or Mitt Romney would have been elected.  McCain and Romney would have not been perfect; even for a paleoconservative like me — but it would have been a good deal better than this liberal we have in there now.

Again, elections matter — this is proof of that.

The Story:

The National Rifle Association has obtained a Department of Justice memo calling for national gun registration and confiscation. The nine page “cursory summary” on current gun control initiatives was not officially released by the Obama administration.

The DOJ memo (downloadable here as a PDF) states the administration “believes that a gun ban will not work without mandatory gun confiscation,” according to the NRA, and thinks universal background checks “won’t work without requiring national gun registration.” Obama has yet to publicly support national registration or firearms confiscation, although the memo reveals his administration is moving in that direction.

The memo stands in stark contrast to the administration’s public stance on so-called gun control. White House spokesman Jay Carney said last month that laws proposed by Obama would not “take away a gun from a single law-abiding American.”

This right here is why the GOP should fight Hillary tooth and nail come 2016

I saw this over at Hotair.com and honestly, I was gobsmacked. :shock: If the GOP does not fight this crazy woman tooth and nail from now until 2016; and we lose this next election, there are going to be some seriously pissed off people in America. Namely, Gun owners.

This quote comes from Time Magazine, and comes via Mary Katharine Ham — this is Hillary Clinton describing her opponents:

We cannot let a minority of people, and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people, hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people,” Clinton said during a live CNN town hall.

Wow…. just…wow. MKH over at HotAir.com breaks this down in a big way, and I might be excessively quoting here a bit…; but, my friends, this one is warranted in a big way:

“We,” said the aspiring head of the federal government,
“cannot let”—As in, “allow.” What remedy, pray tell, does she have in mind for this outrageous epidemic in free thought?
“a minority of people”—The minority, the protection of whose rights Thomas Jefferson called a “sacred principle” in his First Inaugural Address and whose endangerment at the hands of a tyrannical majority James Madison called the Republic’s “great danger?”
“and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people”— Regardless of the truth of this dubious assertion, she seems to repeat it to justify her advocacy for the prohibition of the minority’s dissent, which makes it sound like someone never glanced at a Founding document. “Screw ‘em, majority rules,” the working draft of the Constitution proclaimed.
“hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority.”— Let me see if I can rephrase the idea of a “viewpoint that terrorizes the majority” in such a way that a longtime Democratic politician might understand it. There’s an old adage originally used to describe journalism and oft repeated by the activist Left to give itself airs— “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.”

Hillary Clinton and liberal activists are the comfortable. They require a “safe place” where the presence of others who deign to disagree cannot “trigger” them. Your mere opposition to an asinine limit on mag capacity, which was a demonstrable disaster in incompetent governance in her home state of New York, rises to the level of “terrorizing” for a woman who famously couldn’t figure out if that term applied to anyone involved in Benghazi. But for you, law-abiding citizen, not a problem.

Much of the Left desires that criticisms of gun control policies be banished from the public square. Espousing them is abetting child murder, in their eyes, no matter how much evidence or what arguments Second Amendment activists marshal. Hearing this argument from fellow citizens who call themselves liberal is disappointing.

Hearing it from a potential presidential candidate is creepy. Especially one who’d be taking the reins from an administration that flagrantly uses the power of the federal government to get people it doesn’t like to stop saying things of which it does not approve.

Hopefully, the guys over at HotAir do not mind me quoting that one to death. My friends, let me blunt here; this is not your boilerplate blue-collar Democrat party stuff, not at least from where I sit. This is actually neoliberal Marxism. This is right in line with communist repression of freedom of thought. This is the kind of stuff that turned me against the left. My jaw almost hit the floor when I saw this one. :shock:

This right here, should be used by the GOP against Hillary should she decide to run. They should not give her a pass on this one at all. This is anti-Americanism at its most lethal form. This is the same mentality that pushed Bill Clinton to tell Janet Reno to send the tanks in at Waco many years ago. That somehow those that disagree with you are somehow a threat. This stuff is quite scary; and can have some dangerous fallout to those who happen to support their first and second amendment rights.

I always knew that the Clinton’s were pretty brutal, when it came to politics; just did not think that they were this brutal. I think it goes without saying that, at this point, I am not ready for Hillary; and if the rest of the America has any sense, neither will they be either.

Video: Two suspects shoot two police officers in Las Vegas and say, “The Revolution has begun”

Now, I do not intend this to be some idiotic partisan blog posting. However, I do wonder, what kind of revolution that these two suspects were referring to.

8 News NOW

The story via 8 News Now out of Las Vegas:

LAS VEGAS — Two Metro officers are dead following a shooting at a pizza restaurant Sunday near Nellis Boulevard and Stewart Avenue. Police say a citizen and both suspects are dead, as well.

According to police, a man and woman walked into a Cici Pizza restaurant at 309 North Nellis around 11:22 a.m. and appeared to target two Metro officers who were eating at the restaurant. One person shot one officer in the head. The second person shot the second officer.

Police say witnesses told them the suspects took the police officers’ guns and ammunition and, as they were walking out of the restaurant after the shooting, they said, ” tell the police the revolution has begun.”

The two suspects then left the restaurant and went into the Wal-Mart store across the street where they shot a citizen and then shot themselves, police said. Both suspects are dead.

Metro Police has asked all of its officers to shroud their badges in honor of their fallen co-workers. They are also having officers double up in their squad cars so no officer is riding alone.

 

Here’s the part that bothers me the most:

Police say witnesses told them the suspects took the police officers’ guns and ammunition and, as they were walking out of the restaurant after the shooting, they said, ” tell the police the revolution has begun.”

First off, the media did not comment on the race of the suspects. Was it white suspects? Was it black suspects? Was it latino suspects? Update: Suspects race now know, see below! What sort of revolution were they referring to? These questions are what people like me, want to know. The one thing that I should point out; the suspects killed themselves. Which in my humble opinion, makes them cowards. No true revolutionary, of any stripe, takes the cowardly way out and kills themselves to escape justice. True revolutionaries stand up for what they believe in and will go to jail and face up for their actions.

I am of the opinion, that these guys were nothing more than wanna-be revolutionaries of some sort and they did not plan on the police coming as quick as they did; and when they realized that they had bitten off more than they could chew, they took the cowards way out. Either that, or these people were not wrapped too tight and did this to make some sort of a statement.

Also too, and I think this is very important. Despite what some in the media might try to paint these idiots as; these guys were not Ron Paul types. Ron Paul’s revolution was never, ever about violence. Ron Paul’s revolution was a peaceful one; and he never advocated any sort of violence at all.  Neither would any sort of a Conservative either.

People like myself, who are sane; who are not happy with our Government. We resolve to change it and the culture through civil discourse and by a peaceful exchange of ideas. We also, via blogs so forth, point out and expose the extremists who wish to tarnish our movement and the extremists on the other side, who wish to harm those whom they disagree with.

Also,I want to make it absolutely clear that I do not endorse, nor do I believe in, any sort of violence to fight back against Cultural Marxism. It is wrong, it puts us on the same level has the extremists on the left; and we as Conservative Christians are better than that.

We have the truth on our side, and we do not need to resort to such foolish tactics.

Update:Via Yahoo News

The male shooter, described as a tall white man, yelled “everyone get out” before shooting, Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill.

Terrible, just terrible. :(

Update #2: Some special snowflake left a moronic comment about this posting, and I deleted it, and then responded to it here.

This is stupid and does nothing for the second amendment cause

I’m with SayUncle on this one here; this is just plain stupid:

It would be an understatement to say that the tactics of gun rights activists have been backfiring of late. The showdown has taken place foremost in Texas, where in recent months groups such as Open Carry Texas have conducted provocative demonstrations in which armed men exercise their right under state law to carry semi-automatic rilfes in public. No fewer than five national food and beverage chains have now told them to get rid of their guns or get lost, including Starbucks, Wendy’s, Applebees, Jack In The Box, and Chipotle.

And now Chili’s and Sonic have effectively joined the list: Two videos posted on YouTube on May 19 by the San Antonio chapter of Open Carry Texas—since removed from public view but obtained by Mother Jones—show its armed members being refused service at both restaurants. The two companies have not made official statements on open carry but have since indicated that they are reviewing their policies. From the nervous and angry reactions of some patrons to comments from some of the gun activists themselves, it’s not difficult to see why these spectacles haven’t been winning many people over.

“I just wish I had my kids in there when that one dumb chick come up and started rattin’ her mouth,” said one of the gun activists.

When a young woman approaches the group in Chili’s and expresses her dismay, a guy with an assault rifle strapped across his back offers her a flier. “Um actually, there’s children here,” she replies, “and you’re a dumbass.” As she walks away one member of the group comments mockingly, “Yes, I’m a dumbass,” and then says of her, “must be Moms Demand Action,” referring to the national gun-reform group.

via Gun Activists Flaunting Assault Rifles Get Booted From Chili’s and Sonic | Mother Jones.

Again, I am all for the second amendment. I am also for being able to carry a gun; in public, within the confines of the law. However, carrying an AR-15 or any other sort of a assault rifle into a public place does nothing more than cause panic and makes law-abiding gun owners look like idiots.

The idea is to convince the public that not everyone who carries a gun is some sort of mental unstable whack-jobs. This here, does nothing to further that cause; in fact, it does the opposite.

Just my opinion.

Update: Julie in Pa gives her take on it, and it is spot on.

 

The only person responsible for the UCSB shooting is Elliot Rodger

As I am sure you already know; some deranged nut job named Elliot Rodger opened fire in a neighborhood out in Isla Vista, California near UCSB. Basically, because he couldn’t get laid.

Well, the blame game is starting; in fact, one of the victim’s Father went on an idiotic tirade against the NRA and basically Republicans. Well, there is only one problem with that; and thanks to twitchy for pointing this out:

So, the dude was legally registered; so much for this being the NRA’s fault. In fact, the NRA has called for mental health records to be a part of a firearms background check for licenses. Which some people actually argued against; funny that. :roll:

I also see where the so-called “Men’s Rights Movement” or him being “incel” is being blamed. Please note, “incel” is the cool kid crowd’s term for involuntary celibacy or in layman’s terms; couldn’t get laid in a monkey whore house with a bucket full of bananas! Something I know quite a bit about. Just being honest, there are not any babes beating my doors down guys. :( But, you don’t see me going around shooting people, ain’t no poo tang or lack thereof, worth committing murder. :shock:

Let me be clear:

People just need to stop!

The only person that is responsible for this horrible tragic event is the man who pulled the trigger of that legally registered gun; and that would be Elliot Rodger and only Elliot Rodger! Anyone who blames the NRA, The media, the politicians in Washington D.C. or anyone else is missing the point. How about blaming the inept police in Santa Barbara, California who did nothing at all to follow-up, when the shooters Father spoke to the police about some of his kid’s videos on youtube?

Blaming guns for a mass shooting like this; is like blaming automobiles for auto accidents. Do we just ban all cars? How about placing the blame where it belongs; on the person who actually did it!

Just my opinion.

Update: Now a memeorandum topic.

Update #2: Oh, this is good — really good. 

 

Video: Police State in High River, Alberta Canada

Could this be coming to America?

The Video:

Via Top Conservative News, who notes the following:

During the summer of 2013, The Royal Canadian Mounted Police [RCMP] used the Alberta flood as cover to conduct a test run for a massive door to door gun confiscation.

Sun News says High River, Alberta was turned into a “Totalitarian Disney Land.”

RCMP ordered thirteen thousand residents of High Water to evacuate. Then they went house to house smashing in doors, and looting homes. Some residents say they smashed doors that weren’t even locked.

Over 1,900 homes were illegally entered. RCMP storm troopers stole legal firearms from over 100 of those houses.

Residents of High Water were barred from even viewing their homes for 26 days. Homes were allowed to become completely destroyed because residents were banned from starting the cleanup.

My friends, we must, at all costs, prevent this sort of thing from happening here in America.

 

Shootings in New York and Texas

Contrary to what some might want to tell the people; this is NOT a gun problem, this is a society problem.

The Stories are below….

Via CNN:

(CNN) — Gunfire erupted at a skating rink in New York City on Saturday night, leaving two injured, authorities said.

The shooting occurred at Bryant Park.

One victim was shot in the back and the second one in the leg, according to the New York Police Department. The victims’ injuries are not life threatening.

Megan Cutcher, a San Francisco resident visiting New York City, was having a drink with relatives at a nearby restaurant when the gunfire started.

“We sat down at one of the outdoor couches with a heater and ordered a drink,” Cutcher said. “Right after we ordered, we heard three shots. Initially, it just sounded like a pop gun, but then people started screaming, and we realized it was more serious.”

She grabbed her mother and pushed her under the table.

“We were at most 10-15 feet from the ice.,” she said. “Luckily, the couches we’d been sitting on blocked us from the view of the shooter.”

A few minutes later, the gunfire stopped and the restaurant staff ushered them into the kitchen for safety.

“I was able to calm down a bit, though my heart was racing,” she said.

Police ordered them to stay put while they searched the area. About an hour later, they got an all-clear to use a particular exit.

The shooter is still on the loose.

….and in Texas….

Via CNN:

(CNN) — A shooting at a house party near Houston left two people dead and 22 others injured, authorities said early Sunday.

The shooting occurred late Saturday night in the Cypress area, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

It started at a birthday party in a two-story home, where about 100 people were gathered, police said.

Injuries range from critical to minor. It’s unclear whether all the victims were wounded in the shooting or the scramble to escape from the home.

Police are searching for two shooters.

I realize that it would be easy to blame the guns on these sort of incidents; but it is simply too much of the scape goat mentality to do so. The guns did not get up and decide to shoot these people; someone used that gun to do so! Therefore, one can deduct that this simply a societal problem. A Nation that forgets God, views Christians and Christianity with contempt, runs its political and financial systems like Rome once did — should expect this sort of a thing.

Simply put, our system is nearing collapse and these sort of things should not be a huge surprise to we that actually read the Word of God. There are some, even within the Fundamentalist Christian circles who are actually silly enough to believe that some sort of a so-called “revival” in this Country will stop the madness which is enveloping this fallen world. This is foolishness; judgment is coming swiftly to this Country, get your house in order and above all, be ready to meet the Lord.

It Begins: DC Police Raid Businessman’s House Searching For Unregistered Ammo

This is crazy…

Audio:

The Story:

A Washington, DC gun raid which involved more than 30 officers was not conducted at a known drug den or gang bangers’ hideout but at a respected businessman’s home – all to enforce a controversial city ammo law.

The shocking incident even included the man’s teenage son being pulled naked from the shower after the door was broken down with a battering ram.

In a nation where Americans supposedly possess the same Second Amendment rights, Mark Witaschek, a man without a criminal record, faces prison time for possession of unregistered ammo.

“Anyone who thinks the police won’t come to take your guns is naïve,” Emily Miller of The Washington Times wrote.

The DC law enforcement officers were searching for gun paraphernalia such as empty holsters, ammo, empty magazines, ammo receipts, and even gun cleaning equipment. Mark Witaschek’s entire block was locked down by Washington, DC officers. His 14-year-old daughter opened the door and was met with more than two dozen officers in full tactical gear. The men participating in the gun raid reportedly pointed their firearms at Witaschek and his girlfriend’s heads.

via DC Police Raid Businessman’s House Searching For Unregistered Ammo | Off The Grid News.

So, why’d this happen?

Washington, DC law mandates that all residents register all firearms owned with the police department and only registered gun owners can possess ammunition – even spent casings and shells.

The officers premised their search on a claim made by Witaschek’s estranged wife. The woman was reportedly able to convince a court clerk to issue a temporary restraining order against the father of her children because he had allegedly threatened her with a gun. A judge later ruled in favor of the husband.

…and what did they take?

A list of items found in the DC gun raid after Witaschek’s house was tossed for hours, as shared by the Washington Times’ Emily Miller:

  • One live round of 12-gauge shotgun ammunition — an inoperable shell that misfired during a hunt years earlier that Witaschek kept as a souvenir.

  • One handgun holster — which is legal, even in Washington, DC.

  • One expended round of .270 caliber ammunition — a spent brass casing.

  • One box of Knight bullets for reloading, according to police notation on the warrant. Except, Miller reveals, they aren’t for reloading; they’re for antique-replica, single-shot, muzzle-loading rifles.

Anyone that believes that we are not in a police state —– is a fool. 

Sherriff Nick Finch Acquitted

Remember Sherriff Nick Finch that I wrote about?

It appears that he has been acquitted.

The New American Reports: (H/T John Birch Society’s HQ)

Justice has been served.

Minutes after noon on Thursday, October 31, an eight-person jury acquitted Sheriff Nick Finch of both charges against him. Finch, the sheriff of Liberty County, Florida, was accused of official misconduct and falsifying records. Finch maintained that he was simply standing up for the right of the people to keep and bear arms as protected by the Second Amendment.

The jury agreed, reaching its verdict in fewer than 90 minutes. Within minutes of being found not guilty, Sheriff Finch spoke with Governor Rick Scott, who reinstated Finch within hours.

“Sheriff Nick Finch will be reinstated immediately,” said Governor Scott in a written statement. “I would like to thank the members of the jury in Liberty County for their service in this trial. I would also like to thank Interim Sheriff Buddy Money for his service to the state of Florida.”

It is ironic that Scott would thank the citizens of Liberty County for their service on the jury when it was Scott’s removal of Sheriff Finch in the first place that served to effectively disenfranchise those very citizens.

[…..]

There is an additional disturbing aspect of the case not being commented on by other news outlets. Imagine that Sheriff Finch had released a man arrested and jailed for having openly preached Christianity in a public place. Would Governor Scott have been so hasty to remove Finch from office? Why would the rights protected by the Second Amendment be subordinate to those guaranteed by the First Amendment?

The protection of each of our God-given rights is as crucial to the perpetuation of liberty as any other. Freedom and self-government are threatened just as much by deprivation of the right to keep and bear arms as by a revocation of the right to exercise religion.

Governor Scott’s persecution and prosecution of a sheriff standing up for the Second Amendment rights of citizens of his county is particularly questionable given the hostile climate that threatens the right to keep and bear arms nationally.

It’s over now, though, and all is forgiven. The fact remains that Finch suffered substantial financial setbacks as a result of his removal and at press time, it was unclear whether Sheriff Finch would receive back pay for the four months he was suspended.

A defense fund was established to help Finch defray the cost of mounting a defense. It is a shame, however, that a good man, a duly elected, liberty minded lawman, was forced into this position by a few connected men and politicians eager to lean on an outsider.

“I am so grateful for all the support from patriots all across the country,” Sheriff Finch told The New American after he was acquitted. “I am thrilled to be back to work.”

I am glad to see that the court made a good decision. I was not sure about the details; apparently the Court didn’t see where the law was broken. I trust the decision. 

Mixed feelings on the Florida Sheriff Nick Finch case

I happen to run across this story and I am going to link to it; I am not going to quote it here, because it requires you to read the entire thing. The link below will open in a new window.

Please go check out Trial of Liberty County, Florida Sheriff Nick Finch Begins at the New American. 

Okay, here is my feelings on what I just read. On one hand, I feel that the second amendment is an important thing, and I am fully aware of the attempts by the liberal left to suppress that right by means of local and state regulation; as well as federal regulations. I believe that to be unconstitutional.

However, on the other hand; I am also someone who believes in rule of law. If the person that was stopped and was carrying such guns —- and that person did not have the proper permits to own and carry said guns, then the officer who arrested and booked this man, was simply doing his job.  I do not believe that being a second amendment supporter and being a sheriff of a town, entitles anyone of any office to knowingly break the law. Because that my friends is corruption. Anytime that any one of public office uses their position to grant favoritism, that is cronyism and this case, this man was caught.

If Nick Finch and his supporters want to see the law changed; then they should pressure their local legislators to get the law changed. What they should not do, is use their office of power to make political statements, such as releasing someone on a legit charge; that is no way to make changes in a law.

There is right way and a wrong way to handle situations like this; and it seems to me, that this man did things the wrong way.
