Robert De Niro: Trump Is ,‘Crazy’ — ‘F-ck’ Fox News

H/T Breitbart.

Robert De Niro is in the final stages of Trump Derangement Syndrome where your mental capacity declines to a stage worse than dementia. 

On this week’s broadcast of CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” actor Robert De Niro criticized President Donald Trump and Fox News.

De Niro said, “I think they have but no choice to have an impeachment inquiry. It has to happen. There’s no way around it.”

He continued, “If it wasn’t for you, CNN, MSNBC and some other outlets, The New York Times, The Washington Post, I mean, where are we? This is a crazy world. What is going on? This guy is crazy. We’ve got to get him out.”

When asked to clarify, De Niro said, “Possibly medically, too. I’m starting to think. I didn’t think that before, but now I actually — when I saw him out in front of the helicopter waiting to go somewhere and talking endlessly and sweating and sweating and not even —I said, this guy is not even aware of what he’s—he should at least ask somebody for a handkerchief or something and dry himself off. There is something very strange about that.”

When asked if Trump is “preforming,” De Niro said, “In some ways, I think he is as I think some of these other pundits on Fox are too, because I can’t believe that they would actually buy into this craziness.”

Host Brian Stelter said, “When you say that, folks on Fox come after you. I remember the Tony’s when he got up there and cursed.”

De Niro shot back, “Fuck ’em. Fuck ’em.”

Stelter said in response, “This is cable, so it’s not an FCC violation, but it’s still a Sunday morning. I do wonder why you choose to go that way.”

De Niro said,  “In this country where this guy is like a gangster. He’s come along, and he’s said things, done things we say over and over again. This is terrible. We’re in a terrible situation. We’re in a terrible situation, and this guy just keeps going on and on without being stopped.”

Gun Controllers Claim The .Gov Prevents ‘Gun Violence’ Research, But There’s Plenty of It Available

H/T The Truth About Guns.

I am going to say this as honestly as I can the anti-gun crowd are Damned liars.

nd may carry) vs. non restrictive (shall carry and unrestricted). They didn’t find any increase in violent crime or homicide as concealed carry laws became less restrictive.

It is refreshing to see physicians doing objective research on firearms instead of demonstrating anti-gun bias from beginning to end. Here is another recent example of that bias.

I attended the Iowa State Trauma Conference in August and took in a lecture titled Active shooter in the healthcare setting. I expected the usual anti-gun blather and, unfortunately, I was correct.

Many of the statistics presented were either irrelevant or biased. During the lecture the author repeatedly mentioned how many firearms were confiscated from people when certain hospitals installed metal detectors at the entrances, without discriminating between legally and illegally carried guns.

That wasn’t the worst of it though. She then added that perhaps 20% of weapons got through the metal detectors. So I asked why, if even with metal detectors we can’t stop significant numbers of firearms from getting into the facilities, shouldn’t people inside be armed anyway?

She said that “we have found the increase in the number of firearms is a risk factor for firearm injuries and the number of guns used to protect someone is much less than the number of people harmed with guns every year.”

I brought up the fact that many researchers have found that the number of defensive gun uses is much higher than the harm done by criminals. Even the CDC’s own survey data (which they hid for 25 years), showed approximately 2.4 million defensive gun uses every year. That is many times more than all of the gunshot harm, including suicides, every year.

She said, “We will just have to agree to disagree.” I had to agree with her there. She doesn’t want to consider research that doesn’t fit the party line. I think that we need to look at all of it.

So despite some good articles published by medical researchers this year, we still have a long road ahead with a lot of opposition from medical professionals. Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership will continue to counter the biased pseudoscience put out by anti-gun medical professionals and stand up for our right to self-defense.

Thieves Going Wild in California, Taking Advantage Of State Law Protecting Shoplifters

H/T The Lid.

Shop keepers in Commiefornai are getting a big bite in the ass by the law of unintended consequences.

Hw long before you see mom and pop stores closing due to theft?

Once again, in the Land of Fruits and Nuts, the criminals have outsmarted the lawmakers. California shoplifters

In 2014 California passed Proposition 47, which made theft of property valued at less than $950 a misdemeanor offense.

The previous threshold was $450.

Guess how that is working out?

take our poll – story continues below

CBS Sacramento reports:

VACAVILLE (CBS13) — You’ve likely seen the videos on social media or the local news: groups of people rushing into a store, grabbing armfuls of merchandise. The brazen crimes are on the rise and CBS13 has learned, in most cases, the crooks get away from authorities.

After searching police reports and arrest records, CBS13 found that while the rate of these grab and dash crimes is on the rise, the rate of arrest is down. We turned to law enforcement and the retail industry for answers. Both blame a California law intended to make “neighborhoods safe.”

“It’s a boldness like we’re seeing never before and just a disregard for fellow human beings,” said Lieutenant Mark Donaldson, Vacaville PD.

He explained these crimes have evolved into more than just shoplifting. It’s organized retail theft and he says it’s happening across the state.  Cities like Vacaville, with outlets and shopping centers located near major freeways, tend to be a target for these organized retail crime rings.

“They know the law,” Donaldson said. “One of the first things they ask us [is] ‘Can’t I just get a ticket so I can be on my way?’”

He explained many suspects know theft under $950 is now a misdemeanor, meaning most get a written citation, a court date and are released.

To be fair, California merchants should be forced to hang a sign saying “Theft of less than $950 is a misdemeanor in California.”

This is beyond ridiculous.

It’s just another in a long line of failed California Liberal laws and policies.

Eric Trump Reveals Father’s Campaign Has Raised $15 Million Since Dem Push for Impeachment

H/T Flag And Cross.

It seems every time a DemocRat opens his of her mouth about impeachment President Trump’s poll numbers jump two or three points.

He also manages to rake in piles of cash for his reelection bid.

And Dems will keep fighting for impeachment. That’s the best part…

Nancy Pelosi seemed to be against looking into impeachment, knowing it would embolden conservative voters in 2020.

And yet, she went against her best judgment.

Now, POTUS and his team and reaping the rewards.

From Daily Wire:

President Donald Trump’s son Eric said Friday evening that the campaign had raised nearly $15 million since Democrats officially started an “impeachment inquiry” earlier this week.

UPDATE: We have now raised almost $15 million in small dollar donations (including 50,000 NEW donors) since @SpeakerPelosi started this impeachment charade 72 hrs ago! Unbelievable numbers!! Keep it going — you and the dems are handing @realDonaldTrump the win in 2020! 🤛👍🇺🇸

The Republican National Committee (RNC) had some good news for President Trump this week about its historic fundraising efforts — and some fun with Democrats in the process over their “help” with the GOP’s surge in donations and the Dems’ doomed “impeach Brett Kavanaugh” strategy.

[…]

Together, the Trump campaign and RNC have brought in an impressive $210 million since the start of 2019, which is “more than all the current Democrats seeking to replace Trump raised combined during that period,” Fox notes.

The RNC smashed another fundraising record last month.

Hey Hillary: There’s One Thing You COULDN’T Delete Or Bleach-Bit: And Feds Are Looking Into It

H/T Clash Daily.

I am at the point I will believe something is going to happen when I see the Clintons taking the perp walk.

The Clintons have thumbed their noses at the law form way too long.

I want to see them indited and convicted but sadly we have a two-tiered justice system one for the haves(Clintons)and the have nots (us).

She didn’t stop to think about the digital paper trail. Just because investigators couldn’t get their hands on the entirety of the original texts, doesn’t mean all the options are exhausted.

For every email recipient, there is a corresponding sender.

And we DO have access to the emails of the government employees she was in communication with.

Is it possible that the emails she didn’t want us to see are still with reach, even if the Ukraine government is NOT able to get ahold of the computer that Crowdstrike had to demonstrate whether the alleged breach into Hillary’s security really WAS the result of Russian hackers?

Trending: Amazing Testimony: Former LGBT Postergirl Has This New Mandate From God

The Trump administration is investigating the email records of dozens of current and former senior State Department officials who sent messages to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email, reviving a politically toxic matter that overshadowed the 2016 election, current and former officials said.

As many as 130 officials have been contacted in recent weeks by State Department investigators — a list that includes senior officials who reported directly to Clinton as well as others in lower-level jobs whose emails were at some point relayed to her inbox, said current and former State Department officials.
Source: WaPo

Why is this a big deal?

Well, as Dan Bongino has explained, secure servers work off of a list of approved email addresses, called ‘white lists’. If that email was not added to the formally-approved white list, that email cannot connect with a recipient on the secure government servers.

But Hillary was in contact with some high-level officials — even the President himself — from that email address.

That prompts some serious questions. How did her email – that was obviously NOT a ‘dot-gov’ address wind up on a white list, potentially compromising the entire system?

Who sent emails to Hillary’s outside address? And how could they pretend not to realize she was sidestepping protocol to do so?

How far will this rabbit hole take us?

Hey Hillary… are you getting nervous yet?

That might explain why she’s been spouting off about Trump so much lately…

She wants us looking in the wrong direction.

You know, just like Schiff and company do now that the IG report is about to drop any time now.

Safety Not Guaranteed: Concealed Carrier And Robber Both Die During Gun Battle Following Robbery

H/T Concealed Nation.

Sadly the armed citizen died along with one of the thugs.

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — An armed citizen was robbed at gunpoint by two thugs, and they then made their way into a business to conduct another robbery. The armed citizen made the decision to confront them, and it ended badly for all involved.

Derrick Gholston, 43, was standing about 7:15 p.m. outside of a business in the first block of East 112th Place when he was approached by two men who flashed a handgun and demanded his property, according to Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

After Gholston complied, the two suspects entered the business and announced another robbery, police said. Gholston, who was a concealed-carry permit holder, then pulled out his own gun and confronted the robbers, leading to an exchange of gunfire.

He and one of the robbers, 18-year-old Carlos Smith, were each struck and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, authorities said. Both were pronounced dead within an hour of the shootout.

via suntimes.com

A 51-year-old man inside the business was also struck, but is expected to survive.

Getting into that fight, a fight that you didn’t want in the first place, is a decision that cannot be taken back. It’s a tough call in many situations, and there are never any guarantees that the good guy is going to prevail.

Sadly, in this case, the good guy went down along with a bad guy. It’s a tough thing to see, and makes us realize even more that some people will have no problem shooting innocent people who are simply trying to go about their day.

Keep that training sharp.

Assault Victim Shoots Two Time Attacker to Death

H/T AmmoLand.

There is no doubt theses three thugs would have beaten and most likely killed the assault victim.

Bob Irwin highlights the latest self-defense and other shootings of the week. Read them and see what went wrong, what went right and what we can learn from self-defense with a gun.

Gang Members Thugs Robbers Muggers Home Invasion
Assault Victim Shoots Two Time Attacker to Death

USA –-(Ammoland.com)- Mountain News in Arrowhead, CA reports 07-18-19 a 29-year-old resident of Crestline was shot July 11 at Lake Drive and Lake Gregory Drive moments after he began to assault a 27-year-old male victim. This is according to an incident report and a press release from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives responded to a residence on Lake Gregory Drive to conduct the investigation. They learned that three men had approached the victim around 9 P.M.

The victim recognized one of the approaching men as an associate of a suspect who had beaten him up him back in January. That assault resulted in the victim being hospitalized.

As the three men approached, the victim felt threatened by them and their verbal taunts. He made his way toward his car.

The most aggressive suspect, age 29, apparently grabbed the 27-year-old victim’s shirt and punched him multiple times.

The victim was still able to retrieve his firearm from a compartment in the car. He fired the gun ending the assault around 9:15 P.M.

An off-duty nurse who was nearby, was administering medical aid to the 29-year-old when deputies arrived. The nurse informed deputies of the gunshot wound to the lateral left chest, about one inch above the pectoral muscle.

At that time, 9:22 p.m., a reporting party told a 911 dispatcher that the 29-year-old was awake and in pain. An ambulance transported him to St. Bernadine’s Hospital. He was pronounced dead at 10:12 p.m.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone who may have information, are asked to contact Detective Eric Ogaz, (909) 387-3589. The incident will be submitted to the District Attorney’s Office for review.

Comments:

The reason for the assault is not detailed in the reports. Cleary the victim here had reason to fear great bodily harm as he was beaten badly enough to be hospitalized by associates of these men 6 or 7 months earlier.

No mention is made of the firearm in the car being permitted under CA law.

The first rule of self-defense is don’t get killed. This especially applies when you get killed because you are trying to obey the some firearm law. Only survivors get to defend themselves in court.

#GUNVOTE, Don’t Risk Your Rights ~ VIDEO

H/T AmmoLand.

If you are not registered to vote register.

Then vote in the next election and vote in 2020.

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Our rights as American citizens, like the muscles in our body, require exercise or else they will start to deteriorate over time. When it comes to our right to bear arms, exercising it can be as simple as taking your handgun to the range.

To truly protect our rights, however, we need to have a say in who makes our laws.

When candidates for the most prestigious elected office in our country are proud to say that they want to confiscate the legally purchased firearms that millions of responsible gun owners use recreationally,  to hunt or protect their families, America’s gun owners need to vote to make sure our rights are never infringed upon by opportunist politicians seeking soundbites rather than Real Solutions that make our communities safer

 

NSSF Keeps You Informed

That is precisely why the NSSF, as the firearms industry’s trade association, created #GUNVOTE. Once you are registered to vote, #GUNVOTE becomes your one-stop shop for everything an American gun owner needs to know about how to make a difference in our elections. First, it is important to arm oneself with knowledge about the candidates that you will vote for and how those candidates will treat our Second Amendment rights.

For instance, the #GUNVOTE candidate tracker keeps a comprehensive, up to date, and detailed list of every candidate running for president and what those candidates have said that could impact your right to keep and bear arms. Over one year away from the 2020 presidential election, many of the presidential candidates’ platforms already call for ill-informed and extremist positions such as firearm confiscation, bans on popular sporting rifles, federal licensing programs, prohibitive ammunition taxes, and more. With #GUNVOTE, you can easily find out who will protect your rights and who is proposing radical agendas that will do nothing to improve public safety.

Get Informed, Go Vote

Once armed with the facts, #GUNVOTE will help you figure out when and where you can cast your vote. Early voting and absentee voting differs from state to state, but #GUNVOTE conveniently lists out all U.S states with links to their respective Secretary of State’s website where more details about the process can be found. For those who wait until election day to cast their ballot, #GUNVOTE will also tell you your polling place so that exercising your right to vote is as easy as possible.

Ultimately, #GUNVOTE is a tool created to ensure every citizen understands the importance of voting to protect America’s firearms freedoms. At the same time, however, #GUNVOTE is a tool that is only as effective as the people who use it. It is our duty as gun owners to use the information provided by #GUNVOTE to ensure that we bring our friends, family, and ourselves to the polls to protect our rights that, once taken away, we will never be able to truly restore.

Authorities in Redding, California are praising a concealed-carry holder who stopped a kidnapping and helped police put the suspect in a series of violent crimes behind bars on Thursday afternoon.

Carl Hulsey allegedly attacked his wife and her sister at a home in Redding before taking off in a car with his sister-in-law. When officers arrived a few minutes later, Hulsey’s wife told police that he had assaulted them both, but had fled with her sister. As police were scouring the nearby neighborhoods for Hulsey, they received a report of a man at a gas station holding an individual at gunpoint.

Officers rushed to the scene and upon arrival, they learned the person with the handgun was actually a good samaritan who had confronted Hulsey after seeing victim #2 in the vehicle in distress.

RPD says Hulsey fled from the Mini Mart location after the samaritan pointed his handgun, and began heading southeast in a field towards the Sacramento River, and was eventually apprehended.

The woman who was kidnapped confirmed to police that she had been taken against her will, and also said that Hulsey attempted to sexually assault her while in the car. He’s now behind bars on multiple felony charges, including domestic violence, assault with a deadly weapon, carjacking, kidnapping, sexual battery, and resisting arrest.

We don’t know much about the armed citizen, other than the fact that they are a concealed carry holder. We also know that Shasta County, where Redding is located, has the highest concealed carry rates in the state. According to the California Department of Justice, there are 45.6 concealed carry licenses for every 1,000 residents, or about 45 times the number of concealed carry licenses in Los Angeles County. Shasta County, with less than 180,000 residents, has issued more than 8,000 concealed carry licenses. Compare that to San Francisco County, with a population just under 900,000 residents and 2 concealed carry licensees. I didn’t leave out a digit, by the way. Two. That’s it.

The odds of you running into one of the two concealed carry holders in San Francisco when you need them are pretty small. Thankfully for the kidnapping victim in Shasta County, her odds were a bit better. I hope that Sheriff Tom Bosenko will be talking about this case with some of his fellow sheriffs in the coming days, particularly those sheriffs in coastal California that refuse to issue concealed carry licenses or give special treatment to their county’s powerful and politically connected residents.
