So, a criminal with a warrant who resists arrest meets up with an incompetent government employee who can’t tell a Glock from a taser, then there are Democrat riots, and what’s the result? You must be disarmed.  

If you’re looking for logical logic, keep on looking. If you understand the logic of power, you came to the right place.

Facts don’t matter.

Evidence is racist.

2+2=4 means you’re a transphobe.

This is about power, people. Their power over you.

Understand that you can’t reason your way out of this. We’re not going to explain to our enemies why it’s inefficient, ineffective, or unAmerican to do the things they are trying to do. You might as well try to teach your terrier particle physics with a thick, juicy ribeye in sitting his bowl in front of him.

Tangent: Pardon me for potentially misgendering your pooch.

Back to my point. There is no point, except power. They want to control you. If they can’t they want to destroy you. Everything – and I mean everything – is bent to that objective.

That’s why the media lies to you.

That’s why they selectively prosecute.

That’s why movie stars lecture you.

That’s why they want to take your guns.

That’s why they want to cheat in elections.

That’s why critical race theory is a thing.

You, disenfranchised.

You, despised.

You, a serf.

That’s it. That’s the goal. So, trying to reason your way out of it is useless.

It’s actually worse. It’s embarrassing. You look like a fool. Take Asa! Hutchinson, with his mush-mouthed palaver about “limited government” and citing Reagan to justify his spineless submission to the establishment. This guy literally would rather young children have their genitals mutilated than have to explain to his Walmart masters why he refused to go along with the scalpel zeitgeist.

He’s not just a weak person. He’s not just a stupid person. He’s an evil person.

 And we know it. We see it. And we must speak it.

They want to blind us. They want to gag us. They want us tip-toeing through the PC minefield, afraid to take a step less we trigger a detonation of cancellation. 

But have you noticed the rumblings of resistance?

Have you noticed the stirrings of pushback?

For a while we had Trump to do the pushing, but with him in Florida we can now see others stepping up. Ron DeSantis is banning critical racism. Brian Kemp found some vertebrae and he’s defying Delta, Coke, and “Major League Chinaball” to demand election integrity. The other night, Tucker Carlson charged into the “replacement theory” ambush where we are not supposed to say what the Democrats explicitly say, which is that they intend to import pliable foreign peasants to replace American citizens at the ballot box (of course, sensible Latinos had other ideas, coming around to Trump significantly in 2020). The garbage media and establishment announced that this fact must not be spoken and Tucker spoke the hell out of it.

The backlash begins.

Right now, it is mere stirrings. Americans are slow to anger, but they are mighty in their wrath. When woke bull-Schiff was confined to college campuses, we could live with it. We didn’t see it. It was not in our faces. But now it is. It’s everywhere in the institutions, and it’s filtering down to people in their jobs, on their televisions and even in their homed when young Kaden returns from Cornell as “Kasey” and informs xir parents they are committing literal violence on xim by not paying xir tuition anymore.

Do they imagine that people will just give up and give in?

Some will. The Fredocons did, of course, but they are weak.

But with Normal Americans, the risk is mistaking patience and restraint for weakness.

Think I’m wrong?

Go try to buy some 5.56mm rounds.

The backlash is building. The anger is real and rising. Yeah, everyone’s getting their .45s and AR15s, which is proper – an armed people is a free people – but the reality is we are unlikely to get to the kind of crisis where they come into active play. As much as some leftists salivate at the idea of declaring war on normal people (read their social media and tell me I’m wrong), there’s almost certainly not going to be civil conflict, though with cops as competent as Taser Girl and our broken military focused on pretending boys can turn into girls, I kind of like patriots’ odds against those few traitors who would not quit rather than suppress the American people for the benefit of their leftist masters. No, the violence will be limited to Democrat areas as Democrat voters burn Democrat cities ruled by Democrat politicians. Which would seem make it a Democrat problem.

But the backlash is coming, peaceful but unstoppable. First, you’ll see the social pushback. We will see brave pols like DeSantis and the newly-concervawoke Kemp. We’ll see conservative media figures refusing to honor the narrative guardrails of the lib-fascists, just like Tucker does. 

Soon we’ll see comics attacking this garbage, then other artists joining in. Then more politicians, who will start passing laws banning these practices and gutting these woke corporations. Trust Busting. Banning Chinese collaboration. Regulating big tech.

And we’ll see normal people pushing back in their personal lives.

Of course, we’ll see latecomers like Nikki! and Kristi! who will try to pretend they always knew what time it is. But we’ll remember that when the fight, started these REMFs were cowering in the rear, afraid to offend the Chamber or the NCAA. And they will be ignored.

The 2022 election will be the key. We’re going to crush the left. Why? Because things will get worse, much worse. Crime. A wrecked economy. China will kick our woke military’s behind. Think Jimmy Carter in 1980, but without the competence and a lot more anti-Americanism.

This will be a tough fight, and it is only the beginning. Just do not fall into despair. Do not withdraw – they prefer you submit but they will settle for you giving up (for now – they’ll come for you eventually). Do not fear them.

Be part of the backlash. Get in now, at the beginning.

More Than A Dozen States Are Trying To Nullify Federal Gun Control

Originally published by John Osterhoudt at Reason

With President Joe Biden issuing a flurry of executive actions last week to strengthen federal gun laws, state representatives across the country are working in the opposite direction, taking a page from the playbook of immigration activists by advancing legislation that would make their enforcement illegal. On April 6, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, a Republican, signed the first gun control nullification bill into law.

“Nullifying unconstitutional, federal laws is both legal and it’s also the right thing to do,” says Anthony Sabatini, a Republican lawmaker and member of the Florida House of Representatives. “It’s silly to sit around and wait for something you know is unconstitutional,” he tells Reason. “It’s time to stand up and fight back. And the methods that we need to use are the ones already being used by the left.”

In 1987, Oregon passed a law prohibiting state and local law enforcement from using public resources to arrest or detain people whose only crime was being in the country illegally. Since then, hundreds of other jurisdictions have passed similar laws, becoming so-called sanctuary cities.

Conservative activists are employing the same strategy. While Arizona is the only state where such a bill has become law, elected officials have introduced similar bills in more than a dozen statehouses. Montana‘s legislature has approved a bill that is now awaiting signature or veto from the governor; the Arkansas Senate and the MissouriSouth Carolina, and West Virginia houses have each passed such bills; committees in TexasAlabama, and New Hampshire have bills that are moving forward in their state legislatures; and similar bills have been introduced in FloridaNorth CarolinaGeorgiaMinnesotaOhioNebraskaIowa, and Louisiana.

“We know this stuff has been working and the right can continue to complain about the things that the left is successful at, or they can look at it, learn from it, and replicate it,” Michael Boldin, the founder and executive director of the Tenth Amendment Center, tells Reason.

Sabatini is cosponsoring a bill in Florida called the “Second Amendment Preservation Act” that would prohibit any employee of the state of Florida from enforcing, or attempting to enforce “any federal act, law, executive order, administrative order, court order, rule, regulation, statute, or ordinance infringing on the right to keep and bear arms ensured by the Second Amendment.” The bill says that any state employee who assists in enforcing federal gun control laws would be terminated and never again be allowed to work for the state of Florida.

Defying federal law is something that a majority of states already do in one way or another, by becoming immigration sanctuaries or through the legalization and decriminalization of marijuana and other drugs that federal law still deems illegal.

“In terms of the method it’s identical,” says Sabatini. In sanctuary cities, “they stopped reporting to or dealing with I.C.E., and that’s basically what we’re doing.”

Boldin says that if states refuse to cooperate with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), then federal gun control becomes difficult to enforce.

“The ATF only has about 5,500 employees for the whole country. About a third of them are in administration, and that means they don’t have the manpower or resources to enforce federal gun control on their own,” he says. “Their maximum capacity, year in and year out, is between 8,000 to 10,000 closed cases. So if you get a combination of more than 10,000 people violating a federal act, and then on top of it, you have states and local communities refusing to participate in enforcement. You’ve then opened the door to actually nullify that federal act in practice and effect.”

Boldin says that the legal case for nullification doesn’t depend on the constitutionality of the law a state wants to nullify thanks to a legal doctrine known as anti-commandeering, which has been upheld in five Supreme Court cases from 1842 to 2018. It holds that the federal government can’t require states and localities to participate in the enforcement of federal laws.

“Talking about constitutionality actually does kind of get in the way of anti-commandeering,” Boldin notes. “A lot of people like that as a line in the sand. And I think that’s a good approach, but I don’t think they should be helping enforce federal gun control. Even if a federal court says this federal gun measure is ‘constitutional.'”

In March 2018, when the Trump administration was fighting with local officials over the enforcement of federal immigration laws, John Bolton, who would be appointed by then–President Donald Trump as national security adviser the following month, challenged the concept of nullification in an interview with Breitbart News Daily.

“The idea that law enforcement at lower levels shouldn’t be required to cooperate with the feds is just unthinkable,” he told SiriusXM host Alex Marlow. “That was also proposed by South Carolina Sen. John C. Calhoun before the Civil War, to say that South Carolina and other slave states would not enforce federal law regarding slavery.”

Boldin says that argument is ahistorical. Anti-commandeering originated in the 1842 Supreme Court case Prigg v. Pennsylvania, which upheld the state’s right not to participate in enforcing the Fugitive Slave Act of 1793. “The bottom line is nullification, as a tool banning participation in federal enforcement was actually a tool of the anti-slavery abolitionist North,” Boldin argues. “And when South Carolina seceded…they issued a document to explain their rationale. And they specifically cited Northern nullification of the federal Fugitive Slave Act.”

Sabatini says his bill is popular among Florida voters, but that doesn’t mean it’s likely to pass. In other states, law enforcement groups like the Missouri Sheriffs’ Association have worked to prevent gun control nullification bills from passing or to change their language, rendering them toothless.

Boldin says police departments want to continue enforcing federal law because it’s lucrative. “They get all kinds of funding from the joint task forces, through things like the Department of Homeland security grant, the Edward Byrne Justice Assistance Grant…They get civil asset forfeiture…I don’t think they’ll admit that they’re getting a bunch of loot to do this federal enforcement, but they certainly are.”

Boldin says that for the nullification movement to succeed against gun control laws and beyond, more Americans will have to recognize that the most effective way to oppose federal policies that violate their rights is at the local level.

“The whole idea of federalism is so important because it’s the only way you can have a country with a few hundred million people living together with a wide range of social, economic, political viewpoints together in peace. What’s right for people in California is probably not right for people in South Carolina and vice versa. And when we see things that come down from a one-size-fits-all centralized solution, I don’t think anyone really ever gets what they want.”

Because 36 states have nullified federal marijuana prohibition, Boldin argues, there’s mounting pressure for the federal government to follow suit. “I think we can replicate that on other issues and learn that localism is really the way forward for liberty.”

No Amendment is Absolute… Huh. Is that a fact?

TRIPS AND LIES: White House Blames "Wind" for Joe Biden's ...

JoeBama has gone on the record saying that, “no amendment is absolute.” In as much as it matters, as he’s no more legitimate an arbiter of what’s Constitutional than any other American… I say this: Bullshit, and fuck right off.

What he’s really saying is: “My administration will only observe the amendments we like and can use to forward our agenda.” Hell, Joe… even your boy, Barry, understood the Bill of Rights as a “charter of negative liberties”. i.e. a limit on Federal power

Well… we can all play that game, Joe. If we are going to look at all this Constitution stuff as mutable, let’s take a look at my (I’m as much an American and arbiter of Constitutionality as you are, after all) Bill of Rights (and other amendments) preferred observances, shall we?

  1. I’m generally ok with this one… except where it pertains to people stomping on and burning my flag. As the man said, “the first amendment is to protect you from the government… not from me.”
  2. I’m all for this one and will be exercising the hell out of it. In a wholly, uninfringed fashion.
  3. I’m down with this one, too. Unless I know the soldier personally. In which case, he can stay for a bit. As long as he keeps his poop in a group and throws in for beer occasionally.
  4. Yup. Good with #4. No unreasonable searches or seizures. I’ll be the arbiter of “reasonable/unreasonable.” Thanks for understanding.
  5. Good here too. I reserve the right to keep my damned mouth shut. Or, not. YMMV.
  6. Yup. Speedy trial when necessary is good. But, .gov has been dropping the ball on this anyway. So… Figure it out. Let’s cap it at a month. If you can’t get me on to the docket by then… I’ve been acquitted.
  7. Ok. Jury of my peers. Only if you can find them.
  8. Yes. No one likes cruel and unusual anything. Again, I’ll be happy to let you know exactly what those parameters are if it comes to that.
  9. Yes. I retain the right to do what I want outside the specific confines that the Constitution has outlined as responsibilities of the government, Federal or State.
  10. Yes. The States have rights and can choose not to participate in the Federal shit show.
  11. Ok. State sovereign immunity… I’m generally down. It’s certainly better than the “Federal”, top-down option.
  12. Presidents and Vice Presidents elected together… not sure on this one. I think I may prefer the Adams/Jefferson plan…
  13. Abolition. Well… Slaves seem like a lot of work, but I’m not sure. Maybe we should give that a trial revival. The Third World seems to like it… On the fence.
  14. Privileges or Immunities… Equal Protection… meh. The Feds haven’t observed this one for a while. What’s in it for me?
  15. Prohibits voting restrictions based on race. There are still rules. You still have to prove you’re qualified. Venezuelan isn’t a race. Try to keep up.
  16. Income Tax. Really? This one’s stupid. Tax is theft. Abolish the IRS. Audit the Fed. Not having it. I’ll pay for the stuff I want and will use as it comes up. Pound sand. I’ll keep my dough. Starve the Fed and a lot of other problems sort themselves…
  17. Senators chosen by popular vote. Nope. They were appointed by State legislatures for a reason. That worked better and was much more Republic-an and less Democrat-ic. Let’s go back to the original.
  18. Prohibition (repealed). Well good. Because, I wasn’t going to be observing that nonsense one way or the other.
  19. Women can vote… maybe. Depends on the woman.
  20. Presidential terms… does this really matter? I mean… we don’t have anybody at the wheel now…
  21. Repealing 18. Ok. But, I’ll BMOB when and where I choose. Get stuffed and stay out of my business. My body, my choice.
  22. Number of times Presidents can sit in the chair. Whatever. Again…
  23. DC gets electors… Why? They aren’t a State. The intent was for DC denizens to be short term residents and from somewhere else… where, presumably, they’d be getting some representation. Figure it out.
  24. Prohibits revoking voting rights on the basis of non-payment of taxes. Fine. See 16.
  25. Presidential succession. You see how that’s working out… right? Time to go back to the drawing board…
  26. Fine. 18 year-olds can vote. And, fight. And, drink. And, smoke. What?
  27. Congressional Salary. Take care of 16 as I’ve outlined, and this takes care of itself. Why are we paying those clowns anyway? Shouldn’t they have real jobs? Producing a good or service? Maybe something shovel-ready…
  28. Damn. I guess I’m out of amendments…. and I was just getting loose…

So, Joe… here’s the take away: Your terms are acceptable. You do your thing. I’ll do mine. From the sounds of it, you’ve a bit of a mess you need to deal with at home (like your crack-head kid and his laptop) before you get to start telling me how to live my life. I’ll leave you with a bit of appropriate entertainment as a parting gift…

Multiple Governors Signal They Won’t Put Up With Biden’s Second Amendment Attack: ‘Out Of Control’

U.S. President Joe Biden speaks in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Thursday, April 8, 2021. Biden announced a set of executive actions to curb gun violence, urging Congress to adopt stricter laws and rebutting arguments that his new measures impinge on Americans' second amendment rights.

Multiple governors signaled that they will be taking action against Democrat President Joe Biden after Biden officially unveiled his initial plan to attack Second Amendment rights.

Biden announced a series of actions, which he articulated during a press conference where he made multiple false claims, targeting two types of gun parts: pistol braces and chunks of plastic and metal that are unfinished firearms. The Biden administration also will be publishing “model red flag legislation” for states to consider. This comes just a couple of weeks after the Biden administration urged the Supreme Court to uphold a warrantless gun confiscation case.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following Biden’s press conference that the president’s actions were his “initial actions,” that there “will be more,” and that he intends to “use the power of his presidency” to crack down on Americans’ constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights.

Numerous governors immediately pushed back on Biden’s attack on Second Amendment rights and indicated that they will be taking action to protect their residents from Biden’s agenda.

“Biden is threatening our 2nd Amendment rights. He just announced a new liberal power grab to take away our guns,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) wrote on Twitter. “We will NOT allow this in TX. It’s time to get legislation making TX a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary State passed and to my desk for signing.”

Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy (R) said that Biden’s actions “won’t save lives or stop criminals,” and would only “disarm law abiding citizens.”

“Alaska is a Second Amendment sanctuary state, and we will be evaluating our options,” Dunleavy said.

“I think it’s out of control and it’s obvious that they can’t get it through Congress and so he’s acting on his own,” Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) said. “He’s doing it at a rapid speed. There has not been another president, I don’t think, in history that has implemented the number of Executive Orders that this president has implemented. And the hypocrisy of running as a uniter and a president that was going to bring both parties together and heal this country, he has done anything but that. He is continuing to divide the country and he’s doing it through these outlandish Executive Orders.”

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (R) highlighted the portion of the Second Amendment that states “shall not be infringed,” writing: “Biden claims that his actions won’t infringe on the 2nd Amendment. That’s false.”

“Taking away guns with Red Flag laws is an infringement,” Noem continued. “Placing new limits on firearms sales is an infringement. Curbing ammo purchases is an infringement.”

Idaho Governor Brad Little (R) said that the state will be standing up for its residents’ Second Amendment rights.

“Idaho will not stand for President Biden’s unilateral actions to erode your Second Amendment rights,” Little said. “Idaho’s Congressional delegation and I are in lockstep in our opposition to the President’s actions and his direction to Congress to strip law-abiding Americans of their constitutional right to keep and bear arms.”

Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon (R) tweeted: “Wyoming is, has always been, and will continue to be a state where 2nd Amendment rights are recognized and protected.”

“I oppose any orders or actions imposed from the federal level that infringe on this fundamental right,” Gordon continued. “Today I signed HB 236 which prohibits financial institutions and payment processors in Wyoming from discriminating against firearms businesses engaged in lawful commerce.”

Joe Biden Said The Bill of Rights is NOT “Absolute”

Originally published by Sundance at the Last Refuge

Earlier today Joe Biden raised some eyebrows when he said “no amendment to the constitution is absolute.”   The first ten amendments to the constitution are commonly known as “The Bill of Rights.”

The occupant of the oval office, and head of the executive branch, saying the Bill of Rights is not absolute, should be challenged immediately to qualify that statement.


As a reminder:

♦ Amendment 1
– Freedom of Religion, Speech, and the Press

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

♦ Amendment 2
– The Right to Bear Arms

A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.

♦ Amendment 3
– The Housing of Soldiers

No soldier shall, in time of peace, be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

♦ Amendment 4
– Protection from Unreasonable Searches and Seizures

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized.

♦ Amendment 5
– Protection of Rights to Life, Liberty, and Property

No person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.

♦ Amendment 6
– Rights of Accused Persons in Criminal Cases

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor; and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

♦ Amendment 7
– Rights in Civil Cases

In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States than according to the rules of the common law.

♦ Amendment 8
– Excessive Bail, Fines, and Punishments Forbidden

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

♦ Amendment 9
– Other Rights Kept by the People

The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

♦ Amendment 10
– Undelegated Powers Kept by the States and the People

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

How Much Longer Will the United States Exist?

Originally published by Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org

As a geographical location, the US, not necessarily under that name, can exist for a long time.  But as a nation the US no longer exists.  A nation requires a homogeneous population, which the US does not have, and far more unity than exists today in the US.  Once past the colonial era when the immigration gates were opened, the English population was diluted with Irish, Italians, Poles, Jews, and a variety of other European peoples.  With sensible immigration policies and requirements, the US was able to assimilate diverse European ethnicities into an English rule of law, English civil liberties, and the English language.  These successful efforts of assimilation were abandoned decades ago and supplanted by “multiculturalism” and “diversity.”  Today the US is a Tower of Babel.

Today the US is too diverse to live under the same laws.  For example,Democrats have stated their intention of destroying the Second Amendment.  Moreover, some of them are prepared to do so not by legislative action but by presidential fiat, a power that the US Constitution does not permit.  For example, anti-constitutionalists US Representatives  Mike Thompson (D-Calif.), Joe Neguse (D-Colo.), Val Demings (D-Fla.), and Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.) have asked election thief Joe Biden to “take executive action” against “assault weapons.”  

https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/house-democrats-ask-biden-to-take-executive-action-on-concealable-assault-style-firearms_3758815.html

To request a president to exercise a power he does not have is how tyranny begins, but the Democrat Representatives are so lacking in American enculturation that they ask Biden to pull non-existent powers out of the air and use them against the US Constitution.  This alone proves my point that there is no American nation.  The United States is the Constitution.  Devoid of the Constitution it is some other country.

Aware that the anti-American and illegitimate Biden regime intends to remove Americans’ constitutional right to defend their lives and property against criminals and their liberty against Washington’s tyranny, the Arkansas State Senate has passed in advance of federal action a bill banning the enforcement of Federal gun laws in Arkansas.  

https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/arkansas-state-senate-passes-bill-banning-enforcement-federal-gun-control-laws_3759960.html

In other words, Arkansas is not prepared to live under federal laws passed to please the effete and submissive Democrat voters who populate the northeast and West coasts.  This is not a white/black difference as this black American makes clear—https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2021/04/02/a-brilliant-defense-of-the-2nd-amendment-brilliant-telling-off-of-dumbshit-white-liberals/ .  This is a sectional difference akin to the sectional difference that resulted in secession and Union invasion of the Confederate States of America.  Tariffs suited the North but not the South which was being setup to pay for Northern industrialization.

Today in the US there are many more sectional disagreements than existed in 1860.  

In the US today traditional white Americans—not the woke Democrats—see themselves under threat. The officials of the ruling party and the media presstitutes have declared traditional white Americans to be “domestic extremists,” “domestic enemies,” “white supremacists,” and “Trump deplorables.”  The FBI is searching for and prosecuting those who exercised their First Amendment right to free speech and association by attending the Trump rally in Washington and are falsely accusing those who exercised Constitutional rights of attempting a “Trump insurrection.”  The crazed anti-American House Democrats actually tried to impeach former President Trump for a non-existent “insurrection against the US government.”

This shows that the US politically has degenerated into a backwoods third world country where the incoming regime arrests or executes the previous president.

Trump supporters are the patriots who historically have formed the backbone of the country’s armed forces.  It is these people in the armed forces who the Pentagon is presently purging.

While the idiot appointed Secretary of Defense eliminates the fighting capability of the US military, the illegimate president in the White House  calls the presidents of Russia and China names and issues threats.  Simultaneously, the idiot playing Secretary of Defense issues an American guarantee to Ukraine against Russia, while the Defense department announces a lipsticked, painted fingernail, ponytailed, transgendered army in the interest of diversity.  

The kinds of men who made the US Marines and paratroopers a fighting force are not going to join such an army or accept such creatures as officers.  The US military is history.  Ukraine should take this into account before they get themselves destroyed. The American guarantee is worth zero, and this worthless guarantee can start a world conflagration just like the worthless guarantee the idiot British government gave to Poland in March 1939.

Biden Administration Outlines Six Executive Actions They Will Initiate for Unilateral Gun Control Efforts Without Legislative Branch

Originally published by Sundance at The Last Refuge

The White House has released some details of the six executive actions the JoeBama team has put together for Joe Biden to sign.

(1)  The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.” We are experiencing a growing problem: criminals are buying kits containing nearly all of the components and directions for finishing a firearm within as little as 30 minutes and using these firearms to commit crimes. When these firearms turn up at crime scenes, they often cannot be traced by law enforcement due to the lack of a serial number. The Justice Department will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of these firearms.

(2) The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act. The alleged shooter in the Boulder tragedy last month appears to have used a pistol with an arm brace, which can make a firearm more stable and accurate while still being concealable.

(3) The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states. Red flag laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition for a court order temporarily barring people in crisis from accessing firearms if they present a danger to themselves or others. The President urges Congress to pass an appropriate national “red flag” law, as well as legislation incentivizing states to pass “red flag” laws of their own. In the interim, the Justice Department’s published model legislation will make it easier for states that want to adopt red flag laws to do so.

(4) The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions. Community violence interventions are proven strategies for reducing gun violence in urban communities through tools other than incarceration. Because cities across the country are experiencing a historic spike in homicides, the Biden-Harris Administration is taking a number of steps to prioritize investment in community violence interventions.

  • The American Jobs Plan proposes a $5 billion investment over eight years to support community violence intervention programs. A key part of community violence intervention strategies is to help connect individuals to job training and job opportunities.
  • The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is organizing a webinar and toolkit to educate states on how they can use Medicaid to reimburse certain community violence intervention programs, like Hospital-Based Violence Interventions.
  • Five federal agencies are making changes to 26 different programs to direct vital support to community violence intervention programs as quickly as possible. These changes mean we can start increasing investments in community violence interventions as we wait on Congress to appropriate additional funds. Read more about these agency actions here.

(5) The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking. In 2000, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) issued a report summarizing information regarding its investigations into firearms trafficking, which is one way firearms are diverted into the illegal market where they can easily end up in the hands of dangerous individuals. Since the report’s publication, states, local, and federal policymakers have relied on its data to better thwart the common channels of firearms trafficking. But there is good reason to believe that firearms trafficking channels have changed since 2000, for example due to the emergence of online sales and proliferation of “ghost guns.” The Justice Department will issue a new, comprehensive report on firearms trafficking and annual updates necessary to give policymakers the information they need to help address firearms trafficking today.
