Stossel: NYC Government Traumatizes Gun Owners

If you have a gun, don’t fly out of New York with it! Almost every week, New York City arrests someone who brings a gun to the airport–even when the person has a gun license from their state, notifies authorities about the gun and follows TSA procedures for flying with it. John Stossel interviews people who were arrested and confronts the assistant district attorney who prosecutes them.

Council on American-Islamic Relations: Tear Down Every Confederate Memorial

The Daily Caller

by Eric Owens

 

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America.

CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend. At the Charlottesville, Va. rally, James Alex Fields, a rally attendee, allegedly plowed his grey Dodge Challenger through a large group of people on a pedestrian mall. One woman, Heather Heyer, died in the incident. About 20 other people suffered injuries.

Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately.

“A fitting response to the deadly terror attack on anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville would be for officials in states and cities nationwide to immediately announce that every street, every school, every flag, and every public memorial honoring those who took up arms in defense of white supremacy and slavery will be removed or have its name changed to instead honor those who fought for civil rights,” Awad said in a statement to The Daily Caller.

“Removal of these memorials would be a small step forward in turning the page on the darkest period in our nation’s history,” Awad also said.

CAIR has created a template for state governments, municipal governments and school district officials to use for introducing resolutions seeking the removal of Confederate memorials and other symbolism.

On Saturday, CAIR denounced President Donald Trump for his remarks about the white supremacist rally. Trump exhibited a “failure of moral leadership,” the Muslim advocacy group said.

A number of local governments have removed or contemplated removing Confederate monuments in recent years. Demands for removal of the statues has grown considerably louder and more forceful in response to the events which unfolded in Charlottesville on Saturday.

Leaders in Lexington, Ky., Gainesville, Fl. and Baltimore, Md. have announced plans to remove statues since Saturday.

On Monday evening, a group of protestors toppled a monument to Confederate soldiers in Durham, North Carolina. (VIDEO: Protestors Topple Confederate Statue In North Carolina)

In May, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed legislation protecting Confederate memorials from removal or modification as long as they have been in place for longer than 40 years. (RELATED: Alabama Governor Signs Bill Protecting Confederate Memorials)

In 2009, CAIR was listed by the U.S. government as an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme that provided funding to the terror group Hamas.

The Democrats always play the same game

American Thinker

By Jack Hellner

 

President Trump clearly condemned all hate groups, including the white supremacist groups in Virginia, as he should have, but that wasn’t good enough for the media, Democrats, and many Republicans.  The race card has again been pulled out, as it always is, to imply that somehow Trump is a racist.

It reminds me of what Democrats, via the NAACP, did to George W. Bush right before the 2000 election.  They put out an ad that was meant to show that Bush somehow supported or was sympathetic to lynching because he didn’t support hate crime legislation.  John M. Broder described it in the New York Times:

The N.A.A.C.P. began a $2 million advertising campaign last week featuring Renee Mullins, the daughter of James Byrd Jr. of Texas, who was chained to a truck and dragged to his death in 1998. This television commercial briefly recounts the story of his killing and urges viewers to vote on Nov. 7. An earlier advertisement asked viewers to call Gov. George W. Bush of Texas and demand that he support hate crimes legislation. The 30-second advertisements are being shown in 10 contested states with large numbers of African-American residents.

PRODUCER – Carol Williams Agency

ON THE SCREEN – The spot combines colorful abstract backgrounds with stark lettering echoing the narration by Ms. Mullins. The letters change in size and location like an MTV video. The final message, over the logo of the N.A.A.C.P. National Voter Fund, is ”Vote on November 7.”

THE SCRIPT – ”On June 7 1998, James Byrd Jr. was beaten, chained and then dragged behind a pickup truck three miles to his death simply because he was black. Even after such a brutal act as this, hate crimes legislation in many states still remains nonexistent. I’m Renee Mullins. James Byrd was my father. On Nov. 7, let it be known we will not be dragged away from our future. Vote on Nov. 7. Please.”

ACCURACY – The advertisement’s appeal is emotional, recalling the killing of Mr. Byrd. But it subtly reminds viewers that Governor Bush did not support Texas legislation that would have imposed stiffer sentences for people convicted of crimes motivated by sexual, racial or religious bias. Mr. Bush has said that Texas law already imposes harsh sentences for violent crimes.

What happened in Charlottesville is terrible, and we need to get to the bottom of how it happened and what happened.  But take all the media tricks designed to impugn President Trump as a Nazi as more fake news.

Regime Change in North Korea or a Communist Apocalypse?

America’s Survival

by

 

Our objective should be regime change in North Korea, China, and Russia. These are our main enemies. Let’s start with North Korea.

If President Trump accepts another “deal” with the North Korean regime, he will have made a serious and fatal error. Deterrence hasn’t worked. Right now we can take out the North Korean land-based nuclear threat. If we wait, they will have submarine-based nuclear weapons. And there’s no way to take them out in advance.

The U.N. Security Council unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea on August  5. So what? It’s just one in another series of ineffective resolutions on North Korea. The U.N. is a communist front.

Secretary of State Tillerson is telling North Koreans, “we are not your enemy.” Of course they are. This is a brainwashed nation whose communist leaders must be obliterated. “We do not seek a regime change,” Tillerson says. “We do not seek the collapse of the regime.”

The Communists engineered regime change in South Vietnam, and 58,000 Americans died in vain.

Judge orders State Dept. to search state.gov accounts for Clinton aides’ Benghazi emails

Free Republic

A federal judge has ordered the State Department to search the “state.gov” email accounts of Hillary Clinton aides Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jacob Sullivan for records related to Benghazi, as part of a watchdog’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

U.S. District Judge for the District of Columbia Amit Mehta made the call Tuesday, describing the FOIA lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch in March 2015 as “a far cry from a typical FOIA case.”

He noted that “Secretary Clinton used a private e-mail server located in her home, to transmit and receive work-related communications during her tenure as Secretary of State.”

“The sole remaining dispute in this case is the adequacy of State’s search for responsive records,” Mehta wrote in his opinion and order, noting the State Department has argued the search through Clinton aides’ emails “is likely to be unfruitful.”

But Mehta wrote that the State Department “has not, however, searched the one records system over which it has always had control and that is almost certain to contain some responsive records: the state.gov email server.”

“If Secretary Clinton sent an email about Benghazi to Abedin, Mills, or Sullivan at his or her state.gov email address, or if one of them sent an e-mail to Secretary Clinton using his or her state.gov account, then State’s server presumably would have captured and stored such an email,” Mehta wrote. “State has an obligation to search its own server for responsive records.”

North Korea has new allies- the media and the democrat party

 

Flopping Aces

Look at that face- the face of panic. The face of sheer terror. Be afraid. Be very afraid. It’s what the media wants.

It’s as though every morning the left (press included) wakes up and has no memory of the previous day’s events. Or the previous weeks or months either. Every day is a new day. There is no such thing as history, especially where Donald Trump is concerned. And you can no longer tell where the media ends and the democrat party begins.

This morning on Good Morning America Martha Raddatz started off with a breathless, frightened, panicky warning about Donald Trump and his inflammatory rhetoric toward North Korea. She insinuated that Trump started all the conflict with NK. The world is “reeling.” It was a “dramatic escalation in rhetoric.” It was all due to his mouth. You can watch the fright fest here. Raddatz went off the rails when she claimed that North Korea was planning to target Guam. That is inaccurate. The NK plan is allegedly to drop ballistic missiles into the waters around Guam as a “crucial warning.” They are not targeting the island as Raddatz states. The report then shows a video clip of the Governor of Guam saying any threat to or attack on Guam is one upon the United States. What GMA left out completely was the Governor saying that were Guam attacked, he’d want Trump as the President:
