Nooses Found Near Mississippi State Capitol Turn Out To Be Democrat ‘Protest’

H/T Right Wing Folks.

You will not hear one peep from the drive-by media about DemocRats putting these nooses up in Jackson, Mississippi and not from the KKK.

A group of nooses discovered hanging off trees near the Mississippi state Capitol were not a warning from a white supremacist group, but rather a “protest” by leftists against Mississippi Republican Senate candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith.

Mainstream media organizations melted down on Monday after a number of nooses were found hanging in the vicinity of the capitol building, strung from trees as part of a “message” campaign — though the Associated Press, which first reported the story, didn’t give much more information about the “message” the nooses were trying to send, only that it was one of “hate.”

“Chuck McIntosh, a spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Finance and Administration, which oversees the Capitol, says the nooses and signs were found Monday morning shortly before 8 a.m. on the south side of the Capitol grounds,” the AP reported, adding, “He says the matter is under investigation, and he did not immediately know what was on the signs.”

Local news reported photos of the nooses, and, again, avoided printing the “messages” that were written on signs left near the ropes.

The state’s governor, Phil Bryant, made a clear statement condemning the display, saying that “[t]he perpetrators of this act will be identified and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I have contacted the Department of Public Safety and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for assistance.”

Espy, for his part, was asked Monday night if he blamed Hyde-Smith for the nooses and said that he “can’t connect that to her. I wouldn’t do that. That’d be unfair.”

It turns out it would have been very unfair. Signs placed near the nooses but reported only as “hate” messages by the Associated Press and others, had plenty of information about who hung the nooses and why. But weirdly, the signs didn’t appear on anyone’s Twitter feed until late Monday evening, nearly 12 hours after news of the display went viral.

The signs indicated that the nooses were part of a protest by Democrats, warning against re-electing Hyde-Smith.

“We’re hanging nooses to remind people that times haven’t changed,” read one sign.

“We need someone who respects the lives of lynch victims,” read another.

The signs refer to comments Hyde-Smith made some time ago, at a campaign stop in Tupelo, Mississippi. The New York Post reports that Hyde-Smith referred to one campaign stop attendee as a personal friend and said she’d show up to any event he invited her to, including a public hanging.

“If he invited me to a public hanging, I’d be on the front row,” Hyde-Smith quipped.

The incident was captured on video, and although Hyde-Smith said the comment was an “exaggerated expression of regard,” Democrats took Hyde-Smith’s “compliment” as evidence that she holds outdated views on racial issues and a lack of respect for Mississippi’s historical victims of lynching.

Mississippians will vote Tuesday on whether to send Hyde-Smith back to the Senate.

But The Children: Hispanic Babies Murdered In Abortion Far Outnumber Those Tear-Gassed In Migrant Caravan

H/T Right Wing Folks.

You will never see the fact more Hispanic babies are being murdered by abortion than were tear-gassed at the border because abortion is a sacrament to the left.

Since border patrol agents fired the first can of tear gas onto the Central American migrant caravan at the Southern border, leftists have been howling about … “the children.”

“But the children,” they say. “What about the helpless babes clinging to their mother’s arms?”

HuffPo even quoted several prominent doctors who all explained how tear gas could have long-lasting effects on migrant children for years to come. This came from the same publication that frequently claims the reversal of Roe v. Wade would send the United States into a dystopian apocalypse unlike anything seen in Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

The migrant caravan that arrived in Tijuana recently has an estimated 6,000 people in it. According to the National Review, a majority of those in the violent border clash with law enforcement on Sunday were able-bodied men; only a small handful of those in the scuffle were women and children. Sector chief patrol agent Rodney Scott said as much to CNN on Monday.

“We ended up making about 42 arrests. Only eight of those were females, and there were only a few children involved. The vast majority of those were adult males,” Scott said.

“To be completely frank, there were numerous people that actually made it across the border,” Scott continued. “We’re in the process of building a new border wall here but we don’t have it completed. There were some sections that had dilapidated border wall that was made out of scrap metal the military gave us. The group breached a couple sections of that, actually tore down one small section, and started to rush across. And that’s the time they started assaulting our agents, and we were able to hold them back using riot techniques.”

In contrast to the relatively few Hispanic children that were tear-gassed at the Southern border, in the United States, more than 72,0576 Hispanic children died in 2015 at the hands of abortion, according to CNS News. Here’s what the report said;

The number of Hispanic babies aborted in 2015 in the 31 states and the District of Columbia that report their abortion numbers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (72,056) outnumbered the migrants estimated to be in the current caravan from Central America (approximately 10,000) by about seven to one, according to new abortion data published by the CDC and estimates of the number in the caravan published by the New York Times and the Washington Post.

In fact, there were more Hispanic babies aborted in New York City alone in 2015 (17,391), than there are people in the caravan today.

Even worse abortion statistics have been shown for black children. In 2013, a report from New York City showed that abortions for black babies outpaced natural births, and yet, none of those sobering facts wormed their way to the center of the “Black Lives Matter” movement.

As noted by Life News, the “abortion industry has been known to target minority moms and their unborn babies as well.” A recent study found that “79% of Planned Parenthood surgical abortion facilities are within walking distance of black and Hispanic neighborhoods.” Black Americans make up 12% of the population; Hispanics 16%. Both minorities are disproportionately represented in the number of abortions.

DHS Statistics: Border Agents Used Pepper Spray More Under Obama Than Trump

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

A fact that the drive-by media will ever report.

Despite concerns being raised about border patrol agents using pepper spray and tear gas on migrants illegally attempting to cross the border, the agency used the same methods at a higher rate under President Barack Obama than during President Donald Trump’s first two years in office, according to government data reported by the Washington Examiner.

In 2013, U.S. Customs and Border Protection used Pava Capsaicin, known as pepper spray, at a rate three times higher than that of the agency in 2017, Trump’s first year in office.

Pepper spray was used 151 times in 2013, 109 times in 2014, and 95 times in 2015, according to data from the Department of Homeland Security. The numbers dropped significantly in 2015 and 2016, down to 30 and 49 incidents respectively.

In 2017, the agency reported 56 incidents of pepper spray use. In the first nine months of 2018, 43 incidents were reported.

The frequency of tear gas use by Customs and Border Patrol, while lower than 2012, has increased closer to levels seen at the beginning of the Obama administration.

Tear gas, technically referred to as 2-chlorobenzylidene malonoitrile (CS), was used by CBP officers and Border Patrol agents on 26 occasions in 2012.

That number dropped over the next few years down to three total incidents in fiscal 2016.

The use of tear gas has crept back up to levels seen in 2012 and 2013 during Trump’s first two years in office. In 2017, 18 deployments of gas were documented. Twenty-nine were counted in 2018.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has been using tear gas since 2010. Only data since 2012 was provided by Homeland Security.

The Trump administration drew fire over the weekend from critics after federal law enforcement at the border used tear gas. Approximately 500 migrants stormed Mexican blockades in an attempt to enter the United States at the border between Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, California. Some migrants threw rocks and projectiles.

Trump has criticized the media coverage of his immigration policies as compared to how they covered similar practices under Obama. On Sunday, he tweeted his response to a “phony” story from “60 Minutes” on child separation policies.

“60 Minutes did a phony story about child separation when they know we had the exact same policy as the Obama Administration. In fact a picture of children in jails was used by other Fake Media to show how bad (cruel) we are, but it was in 2014 during O years. Obama separated…children from parents, as did Bush etc., because that is the policy and law. I tried to keep them together but the problem is, when you do that, vast numbers of additional people storm the Border. So with Obama seperation is fine, but with Trump it’s not. Fake 60 Minutes!”

National Concealed Handgun Carry Reciprocity – Last Chance to Act

H/T AmmoLand.

It is time to put pressure on as Rush Limbaugh calls him The Turtle Mitch McConnell to get this bill passed and on President Trump’s desk.

New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- Concealed handgun carry reciprocity is about to die. It is about to die through deliberate inaction or callous indifference of the U.S. Senate. But we have a small window of opportunity: 21 days left to achieve the goal that has eluded us for years. It seemed assured of being accomplished by the Republican-controlled 115th Congress but, it wasn’t.

Congress still has time to act before the end of the year, but that does nothing to explain why Congress failed to get this done. It certainly had ample opportunity to do so.

What Happened? Why Did A Republican Controlled Congress Fail To Fulfill President Trump’s Signature Campaign Promise?

The House of Representatives and the Senate did introduce several national handgun carry reciprocity bills in the last two years. One such bill was 115 H.R. 38, titled, “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. The bill’s synopsis reads: “AN ACT to amend title 18, United States Code, to provide a means by which nonresidents of a State whose residents may carry concealed firearms may also do so in the State.”

The measure was voted on by the full House, and the Republican-controlled House passed the bill, on December 6, 2017, by recorded roll call vote: 231 to 198. The vast majority of House Democrats voted against passage of the bill. Only 6 of 184 Democrats voted for passage of the bill. Contrariwise, the vast majority of House Republicans, 225, voted for passage of the bill; and 14 voted against passage.

One day later, on December 7, 2017, the bill was sent to and received by the Senate, where it was read twice, in accordance with Senate protocol, and referred to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary for action. And, then we heard—Nothing! Dead Silence!

The bill apparently fell into a deep, dark abyss.

Senator Mitch McConnell, who, as Senate Majority Leader, has ultimate authority for determining what bills are voted on by the full Senate, said and did nothing to get the Judiciary Committee to act so that the bill could be voted on by the full Senate.

Why didn’t the Judiciary Committee act on this? They certainly could have, but didn’t. And, why didn’t Senator Mitch McConnell urge the Judiciary Committee to action, so the full Senate would have had the opportunity to vote for passage of national concealed handgun carry legislation? We don’t know. He could have seen to this but didn’t. Senate Republicans who can answer these questions aren’t saying.

Much about this, we don’t know. It is deeply perplexing.

But, This Much We Do Know:

Senator Mitch McConnell can get things done when he wants to. Senator Mitch McConnell was able to get Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmed as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. This wasn’t easy, given the strenuous pushback by Senate Democrats. And the Senator should be commended for his zealous, unflagging effort in that regard. He should be just as zealous in getting national concealed handgun legislation through the full Senate. He certainly could have done so. For some reason, he chose not to. He still has time to get this done before the 116th Congress begins its first term, on January 3, 2019, because, at that point, it would be futile. The House will seat a Democratic Party majority; and the Democratic Party leadership’s agenda will include the drafting of bills to restrict the right of the people to keep and bear arms, not to strengthen that basic, fundamental, natural, and unalienable right

The 2016 general election earned us President Donald Trump along with Republican majorities in both Houses of Congress. National Right-to-Carry was in our grasp. The timing couldn’t have been better. This is what law-abiding gun owners wanted, and NRA and other Pro-Second Amendment organizations campaigned vigorously for it. Our real once-in-a-lifetime hope for National Right-to-Carry is now slipping through our fingers.

The Senate had over a year to act on the bill, from late 2017, when it first received the bill from the House. But the Senate failed to act.

Can’t the Senate simply pass the bill next year and send it on to president trump for his signature in 2019? No! It cannot! All pending bills die.

“At the end of a two-year session, Congress adjourns ‘sine die’ or ‘without day’ and not reconvene until a new Congress starts some time the next January.

After that, the slate is wiped clean; there is no business pending. All of the ‘H.R.’ and ‘S.’ numbered titles that have been discussed and debated for the past two years will be archived.

When Congress reconvenes, the process starts all over again.”

When Congress reconvenes in 2019, House Republicans can reintroduce concealed handgun carry reciprocity, but with a Democratic Party House of Representatives majority, the bill would never pass. So, whatever the Senate does in 2019, won’t matter because both Houses of Congress must pass a bill before a bill is sent to the President for his signature, at which point, a bill then becomes the Law of the Land, in accordance with Article 1, Section 7 of the U.S. Constitution.

Time To Pass Concealed Handgun Carry Reciprocity Is Of The Essence!

There is no time to waste. The Senate is scheduled to adjourn on December 14, 2018. If the Senate fails to pass the bill by emergency roll call vote, we will have lost the only real opportunity to see concealed handgun carry reciprocity through to fruition.

And, keep in mind: the Senate’s failure to act on national handgun carry places extreme pressure on President Trump who made this issue one of the signature issues of his campaign for U.S. President. Failure to accomplish this goal can well lead to Trump’s defeat in the general U.S. Presidential election of 2020. We must place the Senate’s feet to the fire.” This is where you can help!

WHAT CAN YOU DO? IMMEDIATELY CALL:

  • U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (Chairman of the Judiciary Committee): (202) 224-3744
  • U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: (202) 224-2541
  • Your Senate Delegation: (202) 224-3121

TELL THEM THIS:

“The Senate must vote on the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 bill immediately. The bill passed the House on December 6, 2017, almost one year ago, and has since been stalled in the Senate Judiciary Committee. That is unacceptable! We have only a few precious weeks to get this matter completed. The Senate must pass this bill and send it immediately to the President for his signature. President Trump will sign the bill into law, fulfilling an important campaign promise. My continued support for you will depend on your vote to approve this bill.”

You should also contact NRA and President Trump, reminding them of their commitment to support national concealed handgun carry reciprocity. The contact numbers are as follows:

  • The White House: (202) 456-1111 or (202) 456-1414
  • National Rifle Association (NRA): (800) 672-3888

We must put pressure on those who can get this matter accomplished.

Making a few important phone calls will only take a few minutes of your time. It is quick and easy, and critically important to safeguard and strengthen our right to keep and bear arms.

What you do can make a difference, and you will be proud to have taken an active part in protecting our natural, fundamental, unalienable, and sacred right to safeguard our lives and the lives of those closest to us, with the best means available: a firearm.

If you chose to do nothing, you will only have yourself to blame.

This is our last real shot at the passage of significant pro-second amendment legislation! Don’t hesitate to take the shot. You will regret it because it may be your last!

Arrogant Barbra Streisand Attacks Women Who Voted For Trump

H/T The Lid.

This comment proves Babs is stupider than she looks if that is possible.

unnamed

There is no other way to put it Barbra Streisand is both a liar and an arrogant star who has no Idea of how real people live. In an interview promoting her new anti-Trump protest album “Walls”  Barabra Streisand said that American women were intimidated by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s brilliance and unable to stand up to their husbands in the last U.S. presidential election.

‘A lot of women vote the way their husbands vote; they don’t believe enough in their own thoughts. Maybe that woman who’s so articulate, so experienced and so fit for the presidency [Hillary] was too intimidating.‘Perhaps she made women feel unsuccessful.

Huh? It’s incredible how disconnected from regular people Streisand the aging diva must be. She is the anti-feminist if she really believes married women pick the candidates based on their husband’s opinion.   They didn’t reject Clinton because she was intimidating, they rejected Clinton because she was a lousy candidate who promised nothing but “same old, same old” with a little bit of the ole’ Clinton corruption in the mix, In the end, they rejected Clinton because Trump was the better candidate who offered a better future.

Perhaps Streisand feels unsuccessful because her mother ignored her all her life and according to a cousin who went to school with her in Brooklyn the other students rejected the future Diva because she was full of herself even back then. Barbra Streisand would never understand that women such as my wife who runs her own business raised two children, and who at different times cared for a sick mother, sick aunt, dying brother, and an aging father (and a crazy husband), and fought her own battle with cancer is more successful than Babs or Hillary Clinton could ever be.

In my role as a blogger, columnist, and radio host who has attended political conventions and conferences I have met hundreds of women who voted for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, not one has ever told me their decision was influenced by a spouse or frighted by what Streisand believes is Hillary’s brilliance.

But people shouldn’t expect truth from Streisand.  Her arrogant liberal pontification surpassed any appreciation for her singing talent a long time ago. She did say that if Trump won she was going to Australia or Canada.  But of course, she’s still here. Perhaps somebody so full of herself cannot fit in an airplane.

Truth is that Barbra Streisand is a pampered diva whose contracts stipulates that the Hotel’s staff not turn their backs on, or look directly at the Diva.

According to  Hotel Chatter

During a recent [2010] stay at Castletown House in County Kildare, Ireland, Barbra Streisand demanded rose petals in the toilet, peach-colored tissues, and 120 designer bath towels in peach too…because they matched her complexion, according to This Is London.

Sorry Babs,  but pedals or not, I’m quite sure yours doesn’t smell like roses.

She also required 10 specific designer lamps, and requested that the hotel’s security team wear dark sweaters. We wonder if the singing superstar even knew she’d checked into a different hotel once she got to the celeb-centric Dorchester Hotel in London later on in the trip since she’d submitted the same rider to them. Still, all that’s a step above (or in a different direction) from the instructions given to the staff at the MGM Grand to enter and leave the star’s room backwards, so as not to look directly at her.

Around the same time, the NY Post’s Page Six reported her demands at a 2001 “Innovators & Navigators” conference at the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara:

“It was totally insane,” says the source. “She requested that there be no oysters in her room at any time; that every square inch of her hotel room and bathroom be carpeted; and that the head of her bed be elevated a specific number of degrees off the ground. And she said the bed couldn’t be propped up – she wanted an engineer to come in and do it himself.”

The source also reports: “She also requested that she not have to use the lobby during her arrival or departure – which was comical when she arrived with her husband and proceeded to plow right through the front door.”

Barbra Streisand is too out of touch and self-centered to become a pundit on any political matter. Perhaps that’s why at a 2017 concert at Long Island’s Nassau Coliseum when she started politically pontificating the audience booed until she stopped, and her anti-Trump protest album Walls sits at #87 (and falling) on the Billboard Top 200 Album list.

Democrats Already Coming For Your Guns, America

H/T Godfather Politics.

It is going to be a long hard two years for gun owners.

Democrats in Florida have already started their effort to confiscate your guns, America, in the first taste of what Democrats are going to try when they take full control of the House of Representatives in Washington.

A leftist group in Florida is already moving to push an amendment to the state constitution that would ban whatever class of guns liberals find scary.

As Fox 35 reported:

The proposal, backed by the committee Ban Assault Weapons Now, was posted on the state Division of Elections website this month. The committee had raised nearly $410,000 since March, while spending almost $284,000, according to finance information. The expenditures included $75,000 last month to a California-based company for what was described in the finance information as “petitions.”

Ban Assault Weapons Now would have to submit hundreds of thousands of valid petition signatures to the state to get the measure on the 2020 ballot. Political committee had to submit at least 766,200 signatures to get measures on the 2018 ballot, and the petition threshold likely will increase for the 2020 election.

This measure would absurdly describe “assault weapons” as any firearm that would hold 10 rounds or more of ammunition at a time.

The measure would also ban these firearms for everyone but members of the military and police.

There would be an exemption for those who had the banned weapons before the passage of the measure. However, there would be a strict registration process for keeping them.

Naturally, Florida Democrats are excited for the measure.

According to Politico:

“I would love to get the chance to get this done as soon as possible,” said Rep. Ted Deutch, a South Florida Democrat who stepped into the gun debate’s national spotlight after the deadly Feb. 14 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in his district in Parkland. He’s leading the effort with Coral Springs Mayor Walter “Skip” Campbell.

Do not doubt that this is exactly where House Democrats intend to go in Washington. There was little appetite for such measures the last time Nancy Pelosi was Speaker of the House, but since then the Democrat Party has turned more radical than ever.

Democrats are coming for your guns, America.

Count on it. And prepare to oppose them.

When Democrats say they are not coming to confiscate your guns, they are lying. They have always been lying.
