National School Walkout: Marxists Rally Thousands Of Students Against Guns And The Constitution

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Today, thousands of students walked out of their classrooms across America to protest against gun violence. They usually did so with the full blessing and encouragement of their teachers. This sprang up after the mass murder in Parkland, Florida last month at a high school by a disgruntled former student who is also a deranged psychopath. 14 students and three staff members were killed in the shooting.

The National School Walkout was organized by the same people who organized the Women’s Marches. Marxists who are against the Constitution and the Second Amendment and think this is the time to take it down. Wealthy leftists including George Soros are funding the movement along with celebrities who have deep, anti-American pockets, such as Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney. According to EMPOWER, the youth branch of the Women’s March, there are more than 3,130 school walkouts scheduled across the country, as NPR’s Adrienne St. Clair reports.

“I’m just mad there’s no action by our government representatives,” Daniel Rogov, a junior in Brooklyn, New York, said today. Which is not true. Many would like to train and arm teachers at schools. They would also like to employ former police and veterans to guard schools. But stripping people of the right to bear arms, simply gives more control to the bad guys and encourages violence. “It’s all thoughts and prayers; it’s all talk,” he told ABC News. “After a gun violence tragedy there’s a speech talking about how we need change but there never is change.” These are the talking points of the radicals and Marxists who have coached and trained these kids into being useful idiots for their political agenda.

The walkout began at 10 a.m. in each time zone across the nation. It was scheduled to last 17 minutes. One minute for each of the victims gunned down in the Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Some schools are expelling kids who are walking out and I agree with them. This should not be allowed.

To the students at Stoneman Douglas, Daniel’s message is, “Keep making your voices heard. While the politicians might stop talking about this, we’re not done.” No, they aren’t and those like Daniel and David Hogg are being used as walking, talking propagandists to abridge our rights and destroy them forever. Over 3,000 walkout events were registered to take part in today’s call on Congress to pass tighter gun control laws, according to ENOUGH National School Walkout, the event organizers. They are taking place in virtually every state – the professional organizers did their job well. Some of the walkouts, especially in California, even turned violent today and this is just the beginning, not the end.

“Remember why we are walking out,” Stoneman Douglas survivor Lauren Hogg wrote on Twitter today. “We are walking out for my friends that passed, all children that have been taken because of gun violence. We are walking out for the empty desks in my classes, and the unsaid goodbyes. This epidemic of School shootings must stop.” No, they are walking out to further a radical anti-gun agenda by Marxists and are too stupid to see it. In Washington, DC, a huge crowd of chanting students gathered in front of the White House. Once the clock struck 10 a.m., the students silently sat down with their backs to the White House. There were also ‘die-ins’ that took place in various locations.

“We just want the White House to hear us,” Abby Silverman of Bethesda, Maryland, told ABC News outside the White House. Leftists are making progress in taking away gun rights from those under 21, even though they serve in the military and these kids are helping them. Kevin Butler told ABC News he came to the White House to “make sure there are stricter gun laws,” and even though the President wasn’t there during the sit-in, Kevin thinks their voices will be heard. Yes, they will… and mainstream America rejects them.

Outside Trump International Hotel in Manhattan, students chanted “Hey, hey, NRA, how many kids did you kill today?” None. They never have, but they do protect and lobby for Second Amendment rights. These kids are being taught that the NRA and anyone who owns a gun or supports gun rights is a murderer. It’s monstrous. Parents should speak with their kids about being used like this.

In Times Square, students protested silently. Women’s March Youth Coordinator Tabitha St. Bernard Jacobs, one of the adults coordinating students in the movement, told ABC News before the event that while the walkout was sparked by the Florida school shooting, the event is about pressuring Congress to act against gun violence overall. They were just waiting for an emergency to trigger them. She said the walkout was a way to shed light on the kind of gun violence that exists not just in schools but every day, like shootings that affect communities of color or devastate cities like Chicago. You know… the city that is led by liberal Marxists and has the strictest gun laws in the nation… that Chicago. It’s so bad there that Navy medics train for combat because it’s as bad or worse than being on the front-lines in Afghanistan.

While many school districts were supportive of the protests, some schools from Pennsylvania to Georgia had reportedly threatened to discipline students participating in walkouts, which I think is very appropriate. In Plainfield, Illinois, where some students had planned to walk out, doing so came with a guideline. Students who wanted to participate in the walkout also had to attend an after-school discussion with state legislators to discuss issues that relate to school violence, like the political process, school safety, gun control and what influences politicians, Plainfield School District Superintendent Lane Abrell told ABC News. A student who walked out but did not attend the discussion with state legislators would get a one-hour detention, Abrell said. At least it’s a start.

Abrell said the walkout “in my opinion … doesn’t really solve the issue,” and the meeting with local legislators is a way for students who are genuinely passionate about the cause to learn how school violence issues can be solved. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said schools could punish students for missing class for walkouts, but the punishment should only be because students missed school and not as a harsher punishment because the students participated in a protest. Dozens of colleges and universities have said they won’t penalize applicants who are peaceful student protesters.

This wasn’t just high schoolers and college students. Many elementary students took part in the walkout as well. The walkouts on Wednesday are among several protests planned for coming weeks. The March for Our Lives rally for school safety is expected to draw hundreds of thousands to the nation’s capital on March 24, its organizers said. And another round of school walkouts is planned for April 20, the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting in Colorado.

Not all students support this and many are walking out under peer pressure. Parents should find out how their children are reacting to this so they don’t become radicalized.


Gun Confiscation and Speedy Due Process

By: T F Stern | Self-Educated American

There is a concerted effort pushing the gun grabbing agenda of late.  Each time a firearm has been used in a horrific crime the so-called grass roots movement surfaces, taking pot shots (forgive the term), pot shots at our individual inalienable God given right to own and bear arms.

In case you’re unfamiliar with how inalienable rights work, these rights existed prior to the formation of government and cannot be taken away except under very limited situations.  They have been identified and are protected FROM government which means that your neighbors cannot decide to vote them away since these rights didn’t come from government; these rights come from God.

Is it any wonder the left wants to get rid of any and all reference to God?  Without God there can be no God given rights.  Let that sink in and the larger picture becomes more defined.

Our Founders fought a war to establish and preserve inalienable rights risking their lives, fortunes and sacred honor.  Near the top of that list of God given rights that needed to be protected from government… the right of individuals to own and bear arms.  It didn’t specify hunting or sporting firearms; the use of these tools was left up to the discretion of the individual.

The hotly contested issue of firearm ownership was fresh on the Founders minds since King George had attempted to confiscate any and all firearms leading up to the Revolutionary War.  Subjects of the King couldn’t be trusted to submit to his will if they had the ability to object by force.

Jumping to our day, Becky Loggia writing for the Western Journal explains how Florida might have an answer to school violence and mass murders.  After reading it I had to wonder if  Governor Rick Scott of Florida might be a direct descendent of old King George as he seems to have doubts regarding the average citizen’s inalienable right to own and bear arms.

“We must take care of our kids,” Scott said, according to CNN. “Keeping guns away from dangerous people and people with mental issues is what we need to do.”

Who in their right mind would find fault with such a grand statement?  Certainly we must take care of our kids and keep guns away from dangerous people and people with mental issues; the trick is now, and always has been how to accomplish this in a constitutional republic.

There are already laws that cover protecting children and keeping guns out of the hands of specific dangerous individuals such as convicted felons and individuals found mentally incompetent.  Is this resourcefulness an extension of existing law or is this something else?

Governor Scott’s initiative is called the “Major Action Plan” and creates a “Violent Threat Restraining Order” which would speed up securing court orders so “firearms may be confiscated if a family member complains about the gun owner”.

Is this how the 2nd Amendment works or is this a way to ‘get around ’ equal protection of the law by denying rights selectively?

The article went on, “There would be speedy due process for the accused and any fraudulent or false statements would face criminal penalties,” the plan states.  That’s a catchy phrase, Speedy Due Process, modern and with a hint of legality; that might sell to the masses, let’s give it a go.

Would someone explain the difference between speedy due process and undue haste?  It seems the State of Florida has decided that Due Process is no longer fashionable and should be upgraded, or is this downgraded?

Undue : Excessive, disproportionate, exceeding propriety, ill-advised, improper, needless, objectionable…

Shall I continue?

Undeserved, unjustified, unmerited, unreasonable or unwarranted…

I could go on; however, Governor Scott and those who support such infringements on 2nd Amendment rights must be aware that what is being proposed stands in direct conflict with long established legal precedent.

There can be No Speedy Due Process; there is Due Process or there is usurpation of power that infringes on inalienable rights.

With emotions ruling the day rather than reasoned thought, this remains a golden opportunity in time for anti-2nd Amendment folks, those who can’t stand the idea that individuals control their own destiny rather than being subjects of government.  They are coming out of the shadows with eager anticipation, “Get those Guns!  Get those Guns!”.

I wonder how this will all play out.


NRA’s Wayne LaPierre: “European Socialists” Are Taking Over The Democratic Party

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre hit it out of the park at CPAC today. He bluntly warned conservatives that European socialists are smearing gun rights advocates and are trying to strip us of our Second Amendment rights. Bingo. “Socialism is a movement that loves a smear. Racists, misogynists, sexists, xenophobe and more. These are the weapons and vitriol these character assassinations permanently hang on their targets because socialism feeds off manipulated victims,” LaPierre told the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

LaPierre laid it out for Republicans today by boldly stating that “European socialists” are taking over the Democratic Party. That’s true, except they already have. He also named the “Occupy” movement, Black Lives Matter and Antifa as radical groups that are promoting “uncivil discourse” and aim to “eliminate due process.” That’s an understatement if I’ve ever heard one. They want to destroy the rule of law and shred the Constitution via chaos, violence and communist revolution. “The elimination of due process is the very gold standard of the socialist state,” he said. Again, correct and it’s refreshing to hear an American leader come out and say it.

LaPierre’s fiery remarks come just as the gun grabbers are descending once again on American society after a tragic shooting at a Florida high school that took 17 lives and wounded 15 others. Jumping on the gun control bandwagon are Democratic lawmakers and more than a few Republicans. Both President Trump and the NRA are pushing the banning of bump stocks. Trump is in favor of raising the legal age to purchase a gun and stiffer background checks “with an emphasis on mental health” that could lead to a gun registry. None of that will work… but arming teachers and placing armed security at schools would. Instead of looking to abridge our rights, why not address the real problem of safety? Banning guns just makes us more ‘unsafe’ and constitutionally weaker.

Some Republicans have cautioned against moving too quickly on legislation as a reaction to the incident. And they are right… chief among those is Ted Cruz who is against anything that takes Constitutional rights away from Americans. Earlier in his speech at CPAC, LaPierre called proposals to limit the amount of weapons available to Americans “completely ridiculous” and said more security would help prevent future school shootings. He’s right. But the Marxists on the left are ginning up lynch mobs to come after the NRA and anyone who supports gun rights. Their vehicle is the leftist media.

“As millions of Americans search for meaningful solutions, what do we find?” Wayne LaPierre asked. “(Sen.) Chris Murphy, (Rep.) Nancy Pelosi and more, cheered on by the national media, eager to blame the NRA and calling for even more government control. They hate the NRA. They hate the Second Amendment. They hate individual freedom.” Yep, LaPierre is telling it like it is.

LaPierre went on to say that the “elites,” better known as “European-style socialists,” don’t care about America’s school children. They never have. They only appear to care when it fits their political agenda: “If they truly cared, they would protect them. For them, it’s not a safety issue. It’s a political issue. They care more about control and more of it. Their goal is to eliminate the Second Amendment and our firearms freedoms so they can eradicate all individual freedoms.” LaPierre said the liberal elites want more restrictions on law-abiding Americans, “Think about that. Their solution is to make all of you less free. They want to sweep right under the carpet the failure of school security, the failure of family, the failure of American’s mental health system, and even the unbelievable failure of the FBI. They fantasize about more laws stopping what other laws fail to stop.”

LaPierre went on to say that existing laws are being ignored, “Their laws don’t stop illegal criminals from crossing our borders every single day. Their laws don’t stop the scourge of gang violence and drug crime that savages Baltimore, Chicago and every major American community. Their laws haven’t stopped the plague of opioids, the Chinese fentanyl from Mexico that floods American streets and kills victims every single day in this country. No wonder law abiding Americans all over this country revere their Second Amendment freedom to protect themselves more than ever.”

Liberals “don’t care if their laws work or not,” LaPierre said. “They just want to get more laws to get more control over people. But the NRA– the NRA does care.” Very nicely put. He also said how the NRA mourns for everyone lost in last week’s shooting, but that we should talk about and implement real, practical security solutions to protect our children. He also noted that jewelry stores, banks, airports, NBA and NFL games, office buildings, and movie stars and politicians are “all more protected than our children at school.” Schools are soft targets that should be hardened immediately to protect all concerned, not softened additionally to leave them as even more enticing killing fields. The NRA advocates “effective, trained, armed security” inside schools to protect children. “Schools must be the most hardened targets in this country,” LaPierre said. “And evil must be confronted immediately with all necessary force to protect our kids.”

LaPierre’s best quote was this, “If they seize power, if these so-called European socialists take over the House and the Senate and God forbid they get the White House again, our American freedoms could be lost and our country will be changed forever,” he said. “And the first to go will be the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.” And he’s exactly right. I just hope and pray that the NRA and President Trump do not give ground on gun control. We need to strengthen our gun rights, not weaken them like the socialists are trying to do.


Schiff Claims Russian Ads Promoted The 2nd Amendment, “So We All Kill Each Other”

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Adam Schiff (D-CA) is the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. He’s also a leaker and a liar. He claimed last week that Russia used social media to promote the Second Amendment during the 2016 election with the hope that Americans would kill each other. I’m not kidding. He said it more than once too, during interviews with MSNBC and ABC News’ “This Week” and during a speech at the University of Pennsylvania over the past week. I have no way of knowing, but Schiff is just the kind of useful idiot that the Russians love to use.

Schiff claims that Russian intelligence pushed content that had “multiple aims” and was “designed to pit us against each other, to exploit our divisions.” His comments are primarily in response to the recently released Republican FISA memo, which he has called inaccurate. It’s not, but that doesn’t stop Schiff from lying about it. Schiff said the Russians used the Black Lives Matter movement to widen the racial divide in the US. Now, that part is true. But it’s his next claim that is a real whopper.

“Fascinatingly, they also trumpeted the Second Amendment,” Schiff said. “Apparently, the Russians are very big fans of our Second Amendment. They don’t particularly want a Second Amendment of their own, but they’re really glad that we have one. The Russians would be thrilled if we were doing nothing but killing each other every day, and sadly, we are.” Ah, there’s the dishonest asshat we all know and despise. The Second Amendment has nothing to do with any of this, but leftist propaganda mixed with half truths is all the rage on the left these days.

Schiff went on to blame Trump and Republicans and to say they have irreparably damaged the relationship between the Democrats and the intelligence community by releasing the FISA memo. First he said it was national security… that was a lie. Then he said the GOP would redact and skew the memo… that was a lie. Now, he claims that they’ve damaged the Dems special relationship with the FBI. Well, I bloody hope so! They weaponized the FBI and the DOJ to try and take President Trump out in a soft coup.

Republicans are “impeaching the FBI,” he told ABC News host George Stephanopoulos on “This Week” Sunday. “The real damage they have done is they have damaged the relationship between our committee and the intelligence committee,” Schiff said. “In the future, the Intelligence Committee is going to be very wary about sharing any information with us because they won’t trust us to be responsible stewards of it and sources of information are going to dry up.” Why should they trust someone like Schiff? He’s responsible for over 100 leaks. None of you can be trusted. You are corrupt, evil and despicable, so get over it already. People need to be fired and prosecuted over all of this and Schiff is on that list.

Schiff also said that people would also be afraid to report suspicious activities because they won’t trust that their names will be kept confidential. “If you have a neighbor next door who is buying a lot of fertilizer and it seems odd to you because they don’t have a yard,” Schiff said. “Are you going to think twice before calling the FBI? Because if they get a search warrant for your neighbor and something is politicized, and the political winds change your identity is going to be revealed.” First off, that’s sheer fear mongering. But even so, again who caused that? The left did by lying and attempting to destroy the right and by abusing their methods to get Trump. They used communist tactics and now they are getting burned for it. Amateurs.

Sources will dry up, he added. “There’s a reason why this process has never been used before,” Schiff went on. “But, even so, the process presumed that the President of the United States who has a veto over this would be a responsible person who would have the interest of the nation at heart.” The Democrats forced this with their cover-ups for Clinton and Obama. President Trump is not to blame on this in the least. The Democrats own all of this and there is much more coming down the pike. The State Department is next and by the time this is all said and done it is going to dwarf Watergate. I have said many times that the Obama administration would be the most corrupt in history and you are beginning to see all of that surface now.

Instead of Schiff uncovering a plan by Putin, he is most likely a part of one where he serves as a useful idiot to cause chaos in our government. Russia did indeed meddle in our election as they have done for decades. But they didn’t affect the outcome. In fact, the only thing they did affect was goading the Democrats into pushing propaganda and to make fools of themselves. Hillary Clinton has provable ties to Russia and she’s the one who should be investigated here along with Obama. Uranium One and Skulkovo are the true scandals here. That and the Marxists on the left like Schiff in our own government.


Freedom’s Safest Place | “We Stand”


These spots alert Americans to the threats to their freedoms that their leaders distract from and ignore. If we are going to defend our freedom, we must speak clearly and openly about the dangers of terrorism … dishonest leadership … hatred toward our law enforcement … how our culture of political correctness destroys our freedom of speech and religion … and how all freedoms are connected.

Americans are worried about the future of the country, the opportunities left for their children and grandchildren, the lack of honest, moral leadership from the White House to the news media all the way down to many of our schools and businesses.

These are the most important issues facing America today. And no other organization in American history has done more to defend and advance freedom’s cause than the National Rifle Association of America: Freedom’s Safest Place.

From Duty to be Armed to Permission to Carry

By Publius Huldah

“If the central government has the authority to tell a state it must accept permits from all the other states, then it also has the authority to tell a state it may not accept a concealed permit from any other states. If the central government can do these things it can set up a national concealed carry permit scheme and in essence bring into existence a national arms registry. That is exactly where this is headed.”  Attorney Richard D. Fry 1

Some are touting the federal Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 (HR 38) as a bill which would expand our right to carry.  But if you will walk with me for a few minutes, I’ll show you a better path to take.

Let us look at the applicable First Principles, to which I propose we return.

1. Gun control is not an enumerated power delegated to the federal government

Our federal Constitution doesn’t delegate to the federal government any power over the Country at Large 2 to restrict our arms.  Accordingly, all pretended federal laws, regulations, orders, opinions, or treaties which purport to do so are unconstitutional as outside the scope of powers delegated.  They are also unconstitutional as in violation of the Second Amendment.

The only power the federal government has over the Country at Large respecting arms is set forth at Article I, §8, clause 16 with respect to providing for the “organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia”.   Pursuant to this clause, Congress passed the Militia Act of 1792 which required every able-bodied male citizen (with a few exceptions) between the ages of 18 and 45 to acquire a rifle, bayonet, ammo, ammo pouch, and report to his local Militia Unit for training. 3

2. What does your State Constitution say about the right to keep and bear arms?

Each State has its own Constitution which addresses its State Militia and the right to be armed.

Now listen: No State may lawfully make any law which contradicts its State Constitution or which interferes with Congress’ power to “organize, arm, and discipline, the Militia”.

Accordingly, any State Statute which purports to require a permit before one may carry a gun is probably unconstitutional under that State’s Constitution; and is certainly unconstitutional under the federal Constitution because Congress may lawfully require able-bodied male Citizens  to acquire firearms and ammo and report to their local Militia Unit for training!

Do you see?

Now let’s look at Title 18, US Code, Part I, Chapter 44, which HR 38 proposes to amend.

3. Title 18, US Code, Part I, Chapter 44 is unconstitutional

It sets up a complex federal regulatory scheme over firearms, every word of which is unconstitutional as outside the scope of powers delegated, and as in violation of the Second Amendment.

HERE it is, look through it (§§ 921-931).

4. What HR 38 actually does

HR 38 proposes to amend this existing federal regulatory scheme to insert a new provision [to be § 926 D] to require States which have a statute which permits residents of their State to apply for a permit [!] to carry a concealed firearm

to allow persons from other States:

  • who aren’t prohibited by federal law from possessing firearms [!]; and
  • who are carrying a photographic ID issued by a government body [!]; and
  • who are carrying a concealed carry license or permit from the other State [!],

to possess or carry a concealed handgun (other than a machine gun or “destructive device”) which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce.

So! Even though a State Constitution, such as that for Connecticut, 4 prohibits the State Legislature from making ANY laws restricting firearms (such as imposing requirements for registration, a permit, government issued photo ID), a Citizen of Connecticut who exercises his constitutionally recognized right to carry without registration or a permit or a government issued photo ID, wouldn’t qualify under HR 38 for concealed carry in another State.

To qualify for concealed carry in other States, the Citizen of Connecticut would need his State Legislature to pass a law [which is unconstitutional under the Connecticut and federal Constitutions], so that he could comply with an unconstitutional federal statute [HR 38], so that he could carry in other States which also would have to pass unconstitutional laws imposing permit requirements on those who carry concealed.

Do you see how a God-given right [self-defense] is thus converted into a privilege which is regulated, granted, or denied, by civil government?

HR 38 also provides that any person carrying a concealed handgun in a State under the reciprocity provisions may also carry concealed in the public parts of National Parks and certain other lands under federal control.  Lest you think this a gain, consider that:  (1) The Constitution doesn’t authorize the federal government to operate national parks and such like, and (2) the federal government has no lawful authority to impose registration requirements for carrying arms anywhere!

5. What’s the solution?

Read our Declaration of Independence and federal Constitution. Then you won’t fall for unconstitutional gimmicks like HR 38.

The gun rights organizations could perform valuable services to our Country by working for:

  • the repeal of the entire unconstitutional federal regulatory scheme respecting arms;
  • the repeal of all unconstitutional State regulatory schemes;
  • the revitalization of the State Militia to replace the federally controlled National Guard; 5 and
  • by providing more classes for Citizens in arms training.

And please stop lobbying for unconstitutional federal legislation!  


1 From the late Attorney Richard D. Fry’s email of Dec. 10, 2015 to US Senator Moran, a co-sponsor of SB 498, the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2015.  Richard, who was my Friend, sent me a copy of his letter.

Pursuant to Article I, § 8, next to last clause, Congress has general legislative powers over the District of Columbia, military bases, dock yards, mints, federal courthouses and post offices, and such other places needed for Congress to exercise its enumerated powers.  The exercise of such powers by Congress over these small federal enclaves is restricted by the Bill of Rights – including the 2nd Amendment. So Congress is prohibited from making, for these federal enclaves, any laws which infringe the Right of The People to keep and bear Arms.  Congress may properly require individuals visiting federal prisons, the psych ward of military hospitals, the mint, federal courthouses, and such like, to leave their arms in their vehicles.  But Congress may not require Citizens to obtain and carry a permit or photo ID as a condition precedent to carrying a firearm.

3 The “Militia of the several States” were creatures of State Statutes – not of the federal government.  Dr. Edwin Vieira’s short video shows how the State Militia were replaced by the federally controlled National Guard.

4 The Constitution of the State of Connecticut says at Article I:  “SEC. 15. Every citizen has a right to bear arms in defense of himself and the state.”

5 See A SERIOUS QUESTION FOR THE NRA, by Dr. Edwin Vieira, re revitalization of the Militia of the several States.  Dr. Vieira’s mind is a delight.


The Rule of Law is Dead in America

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton


I have lost all faith in both parties and our government. Yesterday, the rule of law in America officially died. There was no fanfare or pretense… only corruption. As Ayn Rand said: “When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – you may know that your society is doomed.” That just about sums it up. Time to go to Galt’s Gulch.

FBI Director James Comey pronounced Hillary Clinton innocent of all wrong doing in the email scandal that has engulfed her now for well over a year. A man who was thought to be ethical and had integrity proved beyond a shadow of a doubt he was anything but. I have said from the beginning, when you lose the unbiased nature of our military and intelligence agencies, you are toast and he has unfortunately proven me exceedingly right.

Noah Rothman at Commentary wrote:

No amount of cynicism could have prepared Americans for what they witnessed on Tuesday morning, and 2016 has not been short on cynicism.

That has bite and screams truth from the rooftops. But if you want even more truth, ask someone who lived under communism what this means. In response to the Comey verdict, Karo. Markowicz tweeted out a statement as to how others who came from the USSR expected no other result: “Guys, the ex-president’s wife was never going to get indicted.” – all my USSR-born friends.” We now live under a manipulated, de facto dictatorship, regardless of party, that pretends Americans are free, while ruling corruptly for and by the elite. Sounds a lot like communist Russia or China to me.

History repeats itself and this particular chapter has Russian overtones – EdgeOfTheSandbox had this to say:

In the waning days of the Soviet Union, the goings on of the nomenclatura were shrouded in mystery. We gossiped about the families of Politburo members, but didn’t know who they were for sure. The only thing certain was that they were above the law, or whatever pretense at law the USSR managed to stage. This produced a culture of cynicism and hopelessness and an epidemic of alcoholism.

Feels oh so familiar, now doesn’t it? Andrew McCarthy nailed it in his first paragraph over at National Review:

There is no way of getting around this: According to Director James Comey (disclosure: a former colleague and longtime friend of mine), Hillary Clinton checked every box required for a felony violation of Section 793(f) of the federal penal code (Title 18): With lawful access to highly classified information she acted with gross negligence in removing and causing it to be removed it from its proper place of custody, and she transmitted it and caused it to be transmitted to others not authorized to have it, in patent violation of her trust. Director Comey even conceded that former Secretary Clinton was “extremely careless” and strongly suggested that her recklessness very likely led to communications (her own and those she corresponded with) being intercepted by foreign intelligence services.

And yet, here we are. Hillary Clinton walks away unscathed after committing blatant violations of the Espionage Act and what I consider to be treason. The fix was in, she was never going to answer for any of this. Ever.


More from McCarthy:

In essence, in order to give Mrs. Clinton a pass, the FBI rewrote the statute, inserting an intent element that Congress did not require. The added intent element, moreover, makes no sense: The point of having a statute that criminalizes gross negligence is to underscore that government officials have a special obligation to safeguard national defense secrets; when they fail to carry out that obligation due to gross negligence, they are guilty of serious wrongdoing. The lack of intent to harm our country is irrelevant. People never intend the bad things that happen due to gross negligence.

I would point out, moreover, that there are other statutes that criminalize unlawfully removing and transmitting highly classified information with intent to harm the United States. Being not guilty (and, indeed, not even accused) of Offense B does not absolve a person of guilt on Offense A, which she has committed.

Andrew McCarthy, Paul Ryan and Ted Cruz have all said this makes absolutely no sense and it doesn’t. It defies explanation, except for cronyism and in-your-face corruption. The law is being flaunted here. Let’s put it this way… when the people feel laws are not just and the law means nothing, crime goes up and rebellion brews. Always.

No one should ever be above the law. Unless of course you are an elitist acting like a czar and feel that the law does not apply to you. It is small wonder a populist uprising and the politics of vengeance are boiling here in the US. Politicians might do well to reflect on the French Revolution right about now, as well as the American Revolution.

In April, 2003, investment banker Frank Quattrone was indicted on charges of obstruction of justice by then-US Attorney for the Southern District of New York by James Comey for one email sent to employees. 21 words brought an indictment. Yet, Comey could not recommend charging Clinton at all seemingly.

Ted Cruz is demanding answers on the whole mess. He wants access to information tied to the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton, saying the decision to recommend no charges “threatens the rule of law.” Once again, Cruz is presidential and right here.

From Ted Cruz: “Under President Obama, we have seen the most politicized Department of Justice in history; I very much hope that politicization has not similarly corrupted the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” Cruz said in a statement Tuesday. “I join my Senate Judiciary colleagues… in calling for public transparency of, and full access to, all the information that the FBI used to come to today’s dubious decision.” Cruz added Tuesday that he has “serious concerns about the integrity of Director Comey’s decision.” As do I sir, as do I. “Director Comey has rewritten a clearly worded federal criminal statute. In so doing, he has come dangerously close to saying that grossly negligent handling of classified information should not result in serious consequences for high-level officials,” he said. Doing so, declares the rule of law all but dead in America. It means the power brokers and elites are above the laws that apply to everyone else. It is the very definition of corruption.

One wonders if someone got to Comey, or was he this bought and paid for all along? I agree with Patricia McCarthy, our government has morphed into an actual crime syndicate and it doesn’t matter which party is elected here, that syndicate will continue and grow.

And as Ben Shapiro wrote: “It’s not just the corruption that shocks — it’s the flagrant, shameless display of it.”

Aristotle’s definition of tyranny speaks here: “…that arbitrary power of an individual which is responsible to no one, and governs all alike, whether equals or betters, with a view to its own advantage, not to that of its subjects, and therefore against their will. No freeman willingly endures such a government.” The problem here is that the people cannot decide whether we are a nation of laws or not come election time… either choice now leads to lawlessness and tyranny.

Bob Owens may have made the most profound statement of all: “When the rule of law no longer matters, it’s time to gun up.” Millions of Americans will look at what just happened and prepare for the worst now. They have had the blinders stripped off and now clearly see this is no longer the land of the free. And the fun has only begun with the House Republicans joining Democrats in pushing legislation that will completely gut the Bill of Rights, infringing upon the First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments, according to Republican Rep. Justin Amash. Not only is corruption ignored and rewarded… not only is the rule of law dead… the Constitution is being destroyed once and for all by both sides. When corruption reigns, revolution follows.


Louie Gohmert Unleases on House Democrats During Sit-In on Gun Violence

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Good for Louie Gohmert! What a bunch of fascist pansies the Democrats are. It’s obvious to all of America that a radical Jihadist killed 49 people in Orlando… it was not a gun issue. Gohmert was having none of this insanity and went down to the floor to unload on the Marxists. It was epic. He physically got into it with Corrine Brown and they had to be pulled apart. Say it with me now… Islamic terrorism.

Louie Gohmert

From The Hill:

Tensions between Democrats and Republicans reached a boiling point late Wednesday night, with one GOP lawmaker getting into a shouting match over a sit-in aimed at forcing votes on gun control measures.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) shouted at Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) and other Democrats, yelling, “Radical Islam killed these people,” pointing to posters with photos of gun violence victims.

He was drowned out by chants from Democrats calling for “No bill, no break.”

According to reports from the scene, Gohmert got into a particularly heated exchange with Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Fla.), whose district includes the site of the massacre in Orlando last weekend. Other lawmakers had to separate the two.

The spat followed a tense vote on a measure unrelated to gun control, in which Speaker Paul Ryan attempted to take back control of the floor, causing an eruption of chants from Democrats who had been holding the floor for more than 12 hours.

Gohmert was totally bad ass and did exactly what is called for here. I’m surprised they didn’t beat Louie half to death for standing up to these commies. Gohmert was a constitutional warrior against the Star Wars bar scene in Congress. These people are acting like they are five… pitching a tantrum in Congress and throwing a fit because they don’t get their way on gun control and eviscerating the 2nd Amendment. Only these children are violent and evil. Gohmert at least has a set and says something. Things are coming apart in America fast and are about to get very bad. Where was everyone else on this? Do we only have a couple of guys with the stones to stand up to these fascists? Utterly corrupt and so very pathetic.




Ted Cruz on Orlando Atrocity: ‘OUR NATION IS AT WAR…’

Hat Tip: The Right Scoop

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) Addresses The Media At The Capitol

From Ted Cruz:

“Our nation is at war. From 9/11 to the Boston Marathon, from Fort Hood to Chattanooga, from San Bernardino to last night’s horrific attack in Orlando, radical Islamic terrorism has declared jihad on America,” Sen. Cruz said. “Early reports indicate the Orlando terrorist had pledged his allegiance to ISIS, and he had previously been investigated by the FBI. And yet, as with the prior attacks, we were not able to act to stop this act of vicious terrorism that has now murdered 50 and injured more than 50 others.

“Our hearts go out to those killed and wounded last night. Our prayers are with their families, and with all their grieving loved ones.

“It is a time for action. We need a Commander in Chief who will speak the truth, and who will unleash the full force and fury of the American military to utterly destroy ISIS and its affiliates. We need to pass the Expatriate Terrorist Act, so that known ISIS terrorists cannot use U.S. passports to return to America and wage jihad. We need a President who is serious – who will identify the enemy by name and do everything necessary to defeat it.

“The next few days will be sadly predictable. Democrats will try to use this attack to change the subject. As a matter of rigid ideology, far too many Democrats – from Barack Obama to Hillary Clinton – will refuse to utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ They will claim this attack, like they claimed every previous attack, was isolated and had nothing to do with the vicious Islamist theology that is daily waging war on us across the globe. And they will try to exploit this terror attack to undermine the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms of law-abiding Americans.

“Enough is enough. What we need is for every American – Democrat and Republican – to come together, abandon political correctness, and unite in defeating radical Islamic terrorism.

“ISIS doesn’t just target soldiers. They don’t just target Republicans. Or Jews. They also target Christians and fellow Muslims. They target each and every one of us. As we saw this morning, they target the gay and lesbian community. Their objective, which they broadcast worldwide, is to murder or forcibly convert every single American.

“For all the Democrats who are loud champions of the gay and lesbian community whenever there is a culture battle waging, now is the opportunity to speak out against an ideology that calls for the murder of gays and lesbians. ISIS and the theocracy in Iran (supported with American taxpayer dollars) regularly murder homosexuals, throwing them from buildings and burying them under rocks. This is wrong, it is evil, and we must all stand against it. Every human being has a right to live according to his or her faith and conscience, and nobody has a right to murder someone who doesn’t share their faith or sexual orientation. If you’re a Democratic politician and you really want to stand for LGBT, show real courage and stand up against the vicious ideology that has targeted our fellow Americans for murder.

“Today, all of America stands in solidarity with the people of Orlando. All of us should lift them up in prayer, demand action, and if you have any information about the Orlando shooter or potential radical Islamic terror plots, please act to keep us safe by using the FBI tips website: https://tips.fbi.gov.”
