Evil strikes Sunday worshippers, left places blame 

November 6, 2017

Atheist killer’s former in-laws attended the church

According to reports, a 26-year-old coward named Devin Patrick Kelley entered First Baptist Church in the small town of Sutherland Springs, Texas as the congregation of 50 was at prayer.

Wearing full combat gear, this monster mowed down the worshippers, slaughtering at least 26 and wounding 20 others, including children and a pregnant woman.

A former Air Force airman, Kelley was court martialed, served a year in the brig and was dishonorably discharged for assaulting his wife and child in 2012.

As he tried to flee the scene, two heroic men pursued the murderous assailant, alerting authorities during the chase. When the killer tried to run from his crashed car, one of the men drew his legal firearm on Kelley, who died at the scene. It is unclear whether the man’s weapon took Kelley’s life.

Leftists are once again politicizing carnage, blaming Republicans and calling for “gun control,” while conspicuously disregarding the fact that it was armed courageous neighbors who tracked the murderer down as he attempted to escape.

In Dec. 2012, we posted Dem gun hypocrites, which exposes liberal double standards.

Will they next be calling for bans on pressure cookers and rented trucks from Home Depot?

More gun duplicity from Dems following Vegas massacre

October 6, 2017

In the wake of the murderous rampage that took the lives of 59 concert goers in Las Vegas and wounding over 500 on Sunday, Democrats have reliably rolled out their favorite canard of Second Amendment restrictions which we are assured will curb any future widespread acts of violence. The 2013 Boston Marathon bombing that used pressure cookers, not guns, to murder 3 and mutilate over 260 others, including 16 who lost limbs, must have slipped their minds.

In 2012, SRAZ posted Dem gun hypocrites (photo and video) putting their duplicitous double standards on full display. Republican lawmakers are galvanizing behind legislation that would restrict devices known as bump stocks, that alter semi-automatic weapons turning them into rapid fire automatics. The murderer who shot randomly at the concert attendees did so from the 32nd floor of high-rise hotel directly across from the venue where 22,000 had come to hear county music performers.

NRA leaders Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox issued this joint statement, reasonably including these words:

“The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations.” 

Surprisingly, it was the restrictionist Obama administration’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that in 2010 approved the devices, determining that the rapid action components were not weapons. Approved without verification, bump stocks were originally peddled by the Texas manufacturer, Slide Fire, as an assist to persons whose hands have limited mobility.

Its website bills the bump stock as “fun, exciting, and entertaining,” omitting any disability justification.

“The stock has no automatically functioning mechanical parts or springs and performs no automatic mechanical function when installed,” stated this 2010 letter from the ATF signed by John R. Spencer, then-Chief of the Firearms Technology Branch. “Accordingly, we find that the ‘bump-stock’ is a firearm part and is not regulated as a firearm under the Gun Control Act or the National Firearms Act,” Spencer wrote.

Frequently confused Democrat Nancy Pelosi using her muted Harry Reid voice, responded when asked whether the gun bill she’s pushing might represent a slippery slope toward other gun restrictions, Pelosi, in a rare moment of truth, replied,I certainly hope so.

Never forget, that’s the actual end game.


Guns, ammo ordered confiscated by Gov. of Virgin Islands

September 7, 2017

Using Hurricane Irma as an contrivance for infringing on Second Amendment rights, Kenneth Mapp, Governor of the American Virgin Islands and also the territory’s Commander-in-Chief of its National Guard, has ordered the Guard’s Adjutant General, Col. Deborah Howell, to seize privately owned arms and ammunition. 

In this peculiar letter* filled with pomposity, verbosity, and frequent references to “me,“ Mapp cites numerous titles and codes as well as “Rules of Force” for this “emergency mission.”

Mapp wrote that the order was issued under authority of Virgin Islands Code, Title 23, Chapter 19,  and insisted it is necessary “to maintain the health, welfare, and safety of the people of the Virgin Islands.” The adjutant general is given the right to “take whatever actions she considers necessary to carry out the assigned missions.”

Mull that one over.

The governor issues big orders and until a “compromise” with the legislature causing him to vacate his $12,500 a month rental estate in 2015, he also lived big. No shrinking violet, Mapp maintains a  grand view of the scope of his authority. When the senate refused to confirm his 11 cabinet members, he simply redesignated and renominated each of them as acting commissioners.

Mapp might well think the hurricane already touched down when he faces the force of the NRA.  Chris Cox,  NRA-ILA executive director, makes it clear that the NRA is ready to use a lawsuit to stop Gov. Mapp’s order:

“People need the ability to protect themselves during times of natural disaster. This dangerous order violates the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens and puts their lives at risk,” Cox said.

“When 911 is non-existent and law enforcement personnel are overwhelmed with search-and-rescue missions and other emergency duties, law-abiding American citizens must be able to protect their families and loved ones. The NRA is prepared to pursue legal action to halt Gov. Mapp’s dangerous and unconstitutional order.”

Cox’ full statement can be read in NRA Condemns U.S. Virgin Island Firearm Confiscation Plan.

Democrats engage in violent identity politics as truth takes a back seat to “tribalism”

Dana Loesch, NRA national spokesperson and syndicated talk radio host, appeared on Tucker Carlson’s program Wednesday evening. Their discussion centered on the increasingly violent and fanatical responses of the left in their “resistance” movement and quest to impeach President Trump — just four months following his inauguration.  This brief segment is enlightening. Take time to watch it,


Pres. Donald Trump wows Atlanta NRA crowd

April 29, 2017

Declaring he is proud to be the first president to address the NRA since Ronald Reagan in 1983, President Donald Trump told the convention of Second Amendment defenders on Friday, “Your activism helps safeguard our freedoms.”

The NRA’s endorsement of Republican candidate Trump in May 2016 was the earliest in the organization’s history.  He was greeted with appreciative applause and cheers throughout his speech, but they reached a crescendo when he reminded the NRA members, “Only one candidate came to speak to you, and that person is the President of the United States, speaking to you today.”

The National Rifle Association has more than 5 million members. Those in the audience at the Leadership Forum heard President Trump pledge, “No longer will the government come after lawful gun owners.”

Trump reaffirmed his support of the Second Amendment and gun rights during his keynote speech. “You came through for me,” Trump said, referencing the strong support he received from the NRA during the presidential election. “And I am going to come through for you.”

“The eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end,” Trump said to enthusiastic cheers. “You have a true friend and champion in the White House.”

“To the NRA, I can proudly say: I will never, ever let you down.”

Refurbishing of RINO Flake begins

March 31, 2017

Jeff Flake’s liberal image: The facts speak for themselves

Jeff Flake is running for reelection in 2018, but first he needs to figure a way to infect Arizona Republicans with pre-election amnesia. We need to forget his repeated declaration that he would not vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. In fact, he haughtily declared Trump “can’t and shouldn’t win.  Flake’s positions have left him with weak support, that even his often inappropriate grin can’t undo.

Now the AZGOP Daily Update, a creation of GOP state chair Jonathan Lines — billing itself as “The Only Official Newsletter of the Arizona Republican Party!” (Italics and exclamation point theirs) — which many regard as a slam at the popular Republican Briefs —- exhibits not only a chronic case of memory loss, but an acceptance of Flake’s marginal Republicanism.

Know this: There is not an iota of difference between Flake and McCain. They both relentlessly push amnesty for illegals, and maintained close relationships with then-President Barack Obama. Flake has colluded with liberals on gun controlMcCain advised Obama on forging his legacy. Flake met with Democrat Merrick Garland, Obama’s Supreme Court pick and actually opined that it was time to start thinking about confirming him.

The AZGOP Daily Update has taken up the whitewash, posturing with this redundant headline, “McCain and Flake Look To Help Law Enforcement Against Criminal Illegal Aliens,” obviously forgetting that ALL illegals are criminals — entering our country by stealth. Imagine that a group broke into your home while you were at work, helped themselves to everything you’ve worked to obtain— demanded you educate their kids and provide them health care and other benefits. When you returned home they wanted your car keys to pick up some friends to join the festivities. That’s what we’re dealing with as a nation.

Arizona’s devious senate duo tout their introduction of a bill “to continue the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) providing reimbursements for state, local, and tribal governments to offset the costs of incarceration for certain undocumented criminal aliens.”  Such a swindle should be renamed to form the acronym SCAM, which more honestly describes the conveniently timed bill.

Jeff Flake is a Libertarian who initially ran as a Republican to get elected.  He’s definitely not a conservative. His progressively close ties with Democrats are only scuttled when elections roll around.

And octogenarian John McCain? His amnesia is indistinguishable from senility (video). An economic wizard, he’s pushing for the elimination of dollar bills, replacing them with dollar equivalent coins claiming such a move will save nearly $14 billion in taxpayer money and generate at least $4.4 billion. He doesn’t explain how.  He’s already forgotten the dollar coins that were costly flops. One named for Lewis and Clark’s Shoshone Indian guide Sacagawea, was minted in 2000 and its predecessor the Susan B. Anthony coin, minted from 1979 to 1981, were impracticable and unpopularexactly like Jeff Flake, as reported by .AZ Family Channel 3 TV.


Jeff Flake: Reaping what he has sown

February 23, 2017

jeff_mcflake_ii

As he gears up for a reelection bid, Jeff Flake is meeting with opposition — not from Democrats — but from within the Republican Party. A first term U.S. Senator, who previously spent 6 terms in the U.S. House — after reneging on his own term limits pledge made during his first campaign for Congress in 2000.  Flake ran as a citizen legislator, vowing that if elected, he would serve three two-year terms. But the heady atmosphere of Washington, DC became irresistible for Flake. Redistricting made him immune to major challengers.

Flake’s refusal to endorse Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was followed by his repeated declaration that he would not vote for Trump. In fact, he haughtily declared Trump can’t and shouldn’t win.

Junior Senator Flake’s anti-Trump fixation closely followed his mentor John McCain, still seething over his 2008 presidential drubbing. His rage is even more inflamed by the fact that Donald Trump, who has never held political office, rode the wave of populism to the White House this past fall.

Since Trump’s ascension McCain has hammered him mercilessly, even referring to him as a “dictator.” In a move of outlandish proportions, McCain has tried to link Trump to Russia and charged Russian “hacking” of the election was an “act of war.” Russia did not intrude on our election. But the Wikileaks information damaged his scandal-plagued friend Hillary Clinton irreparably. McCain had previously referred to her as a “rock star” he could support.

What the duplicitous hypocrite McCain neglected to mention was his own request for campaign donations from Russian officials — which they turned down. The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft has the full story, including shocking, verifying links.

We recommend reading the hard charging  report, Tough Primary Road Ahead for Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake,”by John Gizzi, New Max’ chief political columnist and White House correspondent.

Jeff Flake was originally shoehorned into the senate seat through the diligent efforts of retiring Sen. Jon Kyl and John McCain.  Even with their assistance he barely squeaked into office by a mere 3 percentage points.

There is not a hair’s breadth of difference between Flake and McCain. They both relentlessly push amnesty for illegals, maintained close relationships with then-President Barack Obama  — Flake traveling with Obama to Kenya and  Cuba, and playing as a regular in the White House basketball games. Flake has colluded with liberals on gun control. McCain advised Obama on forging his legacy. Flake met with Democrat Merrick Garland,  Obama’s Supreme Court pick and actually opined that it was time to start thinking about confirming him.

So you think you know Jeff Flake? Think again,” was posted July 2016. Knowledge is power.
