Second Amendment freedoms under assault

February 15, 2019

Pay attention: This is just the beginning as Socialist agenda gains traction

The unambiguous Second Amendment is under assault by leftists, but nowhere is the attack on our constitutional right more vigorous than in what is becoming the repressive People’s Republic of California.

In 2018, the NRA partnered with its state association, the California Rifle and Pistol Association to once again sue the state, challenging the state’s restrictions on sales of ammunition.

A portion of the Safety for All Act of 2016, (scroll past the letter to read the bill) known as Proposition 63 –– which goes into full effect in July 2019 ––requires a background check to buy ammunition. Retailers will be legally obligated to log the amount of ammo gun owners purchase. That record will then be sent to a Justice Department database.

At the time, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsome, a co-author of Prop 63, responded to the lawsuit by stating, “California voters made their decision loud and clear that guns and ammo do not belong in the hands of dangerous individuals,” a disingenuous way of characterizing law-abiding gun owners. Using more honest language, he also declared, the state “would fight the NRA every step of the way.” Newsome is now the governor. He blames everyone but the lax sanctuary city policies he has endorsed and presided over.

A lawsuit was filed by Kim Rhode, six-time Olympic medal winning shooter who set a record winning her first gold medal at the 1996 Atlanta Games five days after her 17th birthday. She has been joined in her legal action by gun retailers across the nation.

A court-ordered temporary injunction has blocked portions of the law from taking effect, including a clause which makes large-capacity magazine possession a misdemeanor.

The Democrats are doing all they can to suppress our rights. The NRA stands as a bulwark in maintaining our freedoms.

Don’t watch the Grammys? Surprising what you missed

Trump supporter boldly displays her views amid leftist domination of entertainment industry

The Hollywood Reporter presents singer Joy Villa. A former Obama voter who liked Socialist Bernie Sanders, Ms. Villa has had an awakening, brought about by Donald Trump.  Her outfits worn to past award ceremonies have clearly illustrated her political and pro-life bent. 

This year she arrived for the Sunday night festivities dressed in a “Build the Wall” gown accessorized by barbed wire shoulder adornments and spiked metal crown along with a red purse decorated with the words, “Make America Great Again.”

The words “Build the Wall” were painted in red on the back train of her dress, which featured an all over brick pattern.

Villa, who is pro-life, describes her father as a Christian minister who was an “overt Republican and Reaganite.”

The Hollywood Reporter article has photos of the current and previous outfits worn by the singer. They all send a strong conservative message.

“I’m all for stronger border security,” declared Joy Villa. “Obama and Clinton and Bush talked about that, but President Trump’s the first one to promise that he’ll get it done. It’s pro-America, pro-protection.”

Villa’s latest album, Home Sweet Home, released in 2018, includes a single titled, “Make America Great Again.”

Buy it! Lovely, conservative Joy Villa deserves our support.


Disgraceful groping of triple-amputee hero at Tucson airport

February 10, 2019

Gateway Pundit exposes the despicable groping of Purple Heart triple-amputee vet Brian Kolfage at Tucson International Airport Saturday, following the We Build the Wall” town hall.

Brian Kolfage set up a GoFundMe page to build the border wall and it has surpassed $20 million in donations with over 350,000 donors. He is proof that a patriotic American citizen has more commitment to American security than the Democrats in Washington, D.C.  For more information on how you can help, go to We Build The Wall.

After being contacted by The Gateway Pundit, Brian Kolfage said: 

“It’s unfortunate that every time I travel I get a full search and swabbed for explosives. It’s the times we live in. I understand the security concerns but it’s not TSA’s fault, it’s the policy makers in D.C. who have no clue what the real world is like; it’s a joke. It’s the same people who think there’s no issue at our border.”

“It’s amazing how our government is so worried about airport security with a triple amputee veteran in a wheelchair but everyday thousands of illegals are coming into our nation unchecked and killing Americans. I guess they turn a blind eye to them like they have to all the angel families.”

Military Times covered Brian Kolfage and his wife Ashley who married after he returned from Iraq, having suffered catastrophic injuries. They are the parents of two children and reside in Tucson. He graduated in 2014 with a degree in architecture from the University of Arizona, finishing among the top of his class despite having to learn to draw and write with his non-dominant hand.

This video was taken by a bystander at the airport, disgusted by what he was witnessing:

Trump’s constitutional right to declare nat’l border emergency

February 2, 2019

Although the left is going ballistic over President Trump’s assertion that he will declare a national emergency to build a wall on our southern border if congress fails to act, the ability to do so is not a new construct emanating from the Trump White House.

The National Emergencies Act was enacted by Congress in 1976, when it was signed into law by President Gerald Ford. It has no specific definition of what is considered an emergency, but has historically been invoked during unusual threats to the nation. There have been 58 national emergencies declared since the act‘s inception. Thirty-one of them remain in effect today.

In 1979, Pres. Jimmy Carter initially put the act to use to declare a national emergency freezing all Iranian government assets in the U.S. in response to the Iran hostage crisis. His national emergency is still in place and has been renewed annually by successive presidents, as required by law.

Pres. George W. Bush declared national emergency acts following the September 11, 2001 attacks. In all, he declared 13. As president, Barack Obama declared national emergencies on 12 foreign relations issues that have also been renewed.

Appearing Friday night with Tucker Carlson, U.S. Army Colonel (ret.) Douglas Macgregor makes the case that President Trump has the Constitutional power, the authority and duty to declare a national emergency on our southern border and craft an Executive Order to delineate precisely what the army must do to appropriately repel invaders. We are already flooded with an estimated 30 million illegal aliens who cost American taxpayers $billions to educate, medicate and, in too many instances, adjudicate and incarcerate. Estimates are they incur nearly $20 billion annually in Medicaid costs, alone.

The Army Corps of Engineers is specifically trained to do the job, having secured other nation’s borders. They, not the national guard, need  to get to work on the wall, a task that is not incompatible with the Corps’ broad mission.

Col. Macgregor provides an in-depth assessment of Mexico’s long standing hostility towards the United States. The informative interview is compelling. Take five minutes to watch it. It’s well worth your time.

 


Dems OK barbaric infanticide, Republicans vote for life

January 31, 2019

Sanity still exists in the Virginia House of Delegates. On Tuesday Virginia Republicans rejected H.B. 2491, known as the Repeal Act, which would have repealed restrictions on late term abortions — even after a mother went into labor. The admission of the bill’s sponsor, Democrat Delegate Kathy Tran, of the ghoulishness of the procedure was the death knell for the bill allowing for aborting human infants minutes from birth.

A House subcommittee voted 5-3 to table the reprehensible proposed legislation. The vote was along party lines, with all of the Democrats voting for infanticide and all of the Republicans voting for life.

Tran is a Buddhist, born in Vietnam shortly after the end of the war. With the devastating loss of life so prevalent and causing her own family to flee to the United States, it would seem she’d have a special affinity for the sanctity of life — even more so as the mother of four children. But leftist politics obscures rational thought.

Todd Gilbert, Virginia’s Republican House Majority Leader, who has been honored as  Legislator of the Year and Defender of Liberty, questioned Tran about the bill during a hearing Monday. He asked Tran if a woman who has physical signs she is about to give birth could request an abortion if a physician alleged the birth could impair her mental health.

“Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth — she has physical signs that she is about to give birth. Would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so certified — she’s dilating?” he asked.

“Mr. Chairman, that would be a decision that the doctor, the physician and the woman would make at that point,” Tran replied.

 “I understand that,” Gilbert, a former prosecutor, replied. “I’m asking if your bill allows that.”

With not a moment’s hesitation, Tran replied: “My bill would allow that, yes.”

Last week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed S2796 into law. The Reproductive Health Act, is a bill permitting abortion through the end of the third trimester. So proud was Cuomo of what he glorified as the “Woman’s Equality Law,” he even made sure the World Trade Center was bathed in celebratory pink lights. What’s not to celebrate about killing your own newborn as he or she takes its first breath?


AZ moves right: Kelli Ward wins GOP state chair

January 26, 2019

Propelled by a massive show of support at Arizona’s Republican statutory day-long Saturday meeting, Dr. Kelli Ward, a Trump-supporting conservative easily secured the party’s top leadership post.

Ward, a physician and former two-term state senator, addressed the jubilant crowd following the announcement of the vote totals. Having traveled the state as a U.S. Senate candidate, she secured a loyal following, trouncing incumbent chairman Jonathan Lines by over a hundred votes cast by elected state committeemen.  Doyel Shamley, unknown outside of Navajo County also entered the race, receiving only 65 votes.

incumbent chairman Lines running for reelection had an uphill battle after presiding over numerous losses of previously held Republican elected offices in the November 2018 election.

Following the vote, a petulant Lines abruptly left the meeting of 1,236 assembled state committeemen who traveled from every statewide county. He reportedly had to be cajoled into returning via a phone call exchange with the previous chairman Robert Graham.

Congressmen Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar and David Schweikert addressed the crowd, as did Congresswoman Debbie Lesko who spoke from D.C. on a video hookup. Newly appointed U.S. Senator Martha McSally, grossly misjudged the crowd as she spoke warmly of the “leadership of Jonathan Lines.”

Gov. Doug Ducey, who also spoke in support of Lines, summed up the feelings of many attendees, with this understatement, “Like you, I was disappointed that we fell short in some of the races.”

Yep.
