Leftist Activist Michael Moore Says Trump Is on Course To Send Biden Down in Defeat in November

H/T Western Journal.

This proves Michael Moore is not as stupid as he looks.

Then again no one could be as stupid as Moore looks.

Leftist filmmaker Michael Moore has seen this movie before – and it doesn’t end well for Democrats.

The Michigan native and outspoken liberal, who predicted then-candidate Donald Trump would win the presidency in 2016, is raising the alarm for his fellow travelers again – citing polls in battleground states and noting that the Biden campaign doesn’t have Michigan on its list of stops yet.

“Are you ready for a Trump victory?” Moore wrote in a Facebook post on Friday. “Are you mentally prepared to be outsmarted by Trump again?”

“Sorry to have to provide the reality check again, but when CNN polled registered voters in August in just the swing states, Biden and Trump were in a virtual tie,” Moore wrote. “In Minnesota, it’s 47-47. In Michigan, where Biden had a big lead, Trump has closed the gap to 4 points.

“Are you ready for a Trump victory? Are you mentally prepared to be outsmarted by Trump again? Do you find comfort in your certainty that there is no way Trump can win? Are you content with the trust you’ve placed in the DNC to pull this off? The Biden campaign just announced he’ll be visiting a number of states— but not Michigan. Sound familiar? I’m warning you almost 10 weeks in advance.”

And he noted one huge difference between Trump supporters and likely Biden voters.

“The enthusiasm level for the 60 million in Trump’s base is OFF THE CHARTS!” Moore wrote.

Moore’s warning should sound familiar.

In 2016, he was virtually alone among supporters of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton who foresaw the defeat that was coming her way.

In a memorable speech from Moore’s documentary “TrumpLand,” released just before the election, as Breitbart reported at the time, Moore predicted a Trump victory.

“Whether Trump means it or not is kind of irrelevant because he’s saying the things to people who are hurting. And it’s why every beaten-down, nameless, forgotten working stiff who used to be part of what was called the middle class loves Trump,” Moore told an audience in the film, as Breitbart reported.

“He is the human Molotov cocktail that they’ve been waiting for,” Moore added. “The human hand grenade that they can legally throw into the system that stole their lives from them …

“So on November 8th, the dispossessed will walk into the voting booth, be handed a ballot, close the curtain and take that lever, or felt pen, or touch screen and put a big f*cking X in the box by the name of the man who has threatened to upend and overturn the very system that has ruined their lives: Donald J. Trump.

“Trump’s election is going to be the biggest ‘F*ck you’ ever recorded in human history,” Moore said. “And it will feel good.”

Moore’s warning went largely unheeded then – Trump’s victory in the early morning of Nov. 9, 2016, left the political world stunned.

On Sunday, Moore took to Twitter to emphasize his latest warning for liberals, listing a series of poll results that show former Vice President Joe Biden with a lead over the president — but with an important caveat:

Biden’s leads are smaller now than Clinton’s were at this point in 2016.

 

Coming out of last week’s Republican National Convention – The Morning Consult reported Saturday that polls show Trump cutting into Biden’s lead — Moore wasn’t the only prominent liberal to be worried about the election.

On Friday, HBO’s Bill Maher, an occasionally unorthodox voice in the liberal commentariat, also expressed concerns about Biden’s potential, according to Fox News.

“I am feeling less confident about this — maybe it’s just their convention bump got to me, but I’m feeling less confident than I was a month ago,” Maher said on “Real Time with Bill Maher.” “I feel very nervous, the same way I did four years ago at this time.”

Willie Brown to Democrats and Media: Stop Calling Riots ‘Demonstrations’

H/T Breitbart.

For a DemocRat Willie Brown is making some very smart and insightful observations.

Former San Francisco mayor and California State Assembly speaker Willie Brown wrote Saturday that Democrats should stop calling riots “demonstrations” because “burning and looting” will help re-elect President Donald Trump.

In a San Francisco Chronicle column titled, “Burning and looting in the name of justice will hand election to Trump,” Brown wrote: “The biggest threat to a Democratic election sweep in November isn’t the Republican in the White House, but the demonstrators who are tearing up cities in the name of racial justice.”

Noting that new polls showed voters are increasingly worried about crime, Brown said that Democrats were in a “heck of a bind”:

If they stand up and condemn the “demonstrators,” the left wing will label them as Trump flunkies and they’ll be in all sorts of trouble.

If they keep quiet or offer passive responses, voters will assume they’re OK with burning and looting.

The answer, he said, was to “have everyone, including the media, stop calling the after-dark destruction ‘demonstrations.’”

He explained:

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. did not cross the bridge at Selma under cover of darkness. You can’t even read a protest sign at night.

The demonstrations end when the sun goes down. After that, it’s trouble for trouble’s sake.

Brown’s point echoes an argument this reporter recently made at Breitbart News, in which I wrote:

The civil rights movement was effective because the tactic of non-violence, adapted from Gandhi and applied by King and [John] Lewis, evoked the empathy of observers.

Moreover, Dr. King also used the common language of Christianity to challenge his countrymen to live up to the ideals of their Constitution — and their Bible.

Today’s protests have abandoned the tradition of Dr. King and embraced the ideas of Saul Alinsky, for whom chaos was the goal. (They have even vandalized a statue of Gandhi.)

Brown has admitted that he gave Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) her start in politics by arranging paid government jobs for her while they were dating in the 1990s.

 

Pin-up Girls Helped Win WWII

Pacific Paratrooper

America’s entrance into WWII triggered the golden age of WWII Pin-ups — pictures of smiling women in a range of clothing-challenged situations.  The racy photos adorned lonely servicemen’s lockers, the walls of barracks, and even the sides of planes.  For the first time in its history, the U.S. military unofficially sanctioned this kind of art: pin-up pictures, magazines and calendars were shipped and distributed among the troops, often at government expense.

No history of any military unit would be complete without some info on its favorite pin-ups.  Keep in mind that in the days prior to women being in every military unit, soldiers would be in the field or in combat for months on end, or years as in WWII, without seeing or hearing a female voice.

Although a little revealing at times, pin-ups were not what you would recall pornography.  No one knows for sure when this trend began…

Alabama Needs To Dump Doug

H/T AmmoLand.

Alabama it is time to dump Doug Jones.

Alabama – -(AmmoLand.com)- The 2020 elections are coming up, and control of the House, Senate, and White House are all up for grabs. One of the best chances Second Amendment supporters have of improving the situation in the Senate is in Alabama, where Democrat Doug Jones is facing former Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville.

During his time in the Senate since beating Roy Moore in a December 2017 special election, Jones has co-sponsored 11 bills. While none are egregious attacks on our Second Amendment rights, Jones did sign on to a version of the “For The People Act,” which for all intents and purposes is intended to silence grassroots opposition to left-wing politicians and causes, like gun control.

 

Worse, Jones has been a reliable vote against pro-Second Amendment federal judges at all levels. He may not be Dianne Feinstein on guns, but would any loyal Ammoland reader be willing to conclude that Jones or Jon Tester are people they’d want to count on to protect their rights?

While the Republicans have had the majority in the Senate since the 2014 election, and Mitch McConnell has turned the Senate into a machine of filling those judicial vacancies, a Senate that goes the other way could be a disaster. As things stand, there are several states where pro-Second Amendment senators could be beaten by those who, at best, would be only partially supportive on the entire spectrum of Second Amendment issues.

One of those issues is judges. In the wake of the 2020 election, the next President could very well be naming the replacements for Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, and Clarence Thomas. Should President Trump win re-election, he would be naming the nominees, something which cannot be minimized in terms of importance. But just as important would be the composition of the United States Senate.

Right now, pro-Second Amendment judges get through. But should it be a 51-49 Senate, or worse, 50-50, it may not be so easy. In addition, a mushy Senator like Lisa Murkowski or Mitt Romney could sink a nomination. Then, there is always the risk of another Jim Jeffords party switch that flips the Senate.

You only need to look at what happened when George W. Bush was in the White House to see how Democratic control of the Senate affects judges – particularly Chuck Schumer’s treatment of Miguel Estrada. Today, Schumer would be Senate Majority Leader, and he would be siccing Sheldon Whitehouse on any pro-Second Amendment judicial nominee. Whitehouse, it should be noted, threatened the Supreme Court during the New York City case – and we saw John Roberts back away from taking up any Second Amendment cases after that threat. What sort of intimidation could Whitehouse force if he had actual power by being in the majority?

Second Amendment supporters can look up Tommy Tuberville via his campaign website. In addition, they can support the National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund to help elect pro-Second Amendment candidates at all levels this year. It’s well past time for Alabama to dump Doug.

Closing Out the Legislature, and Launching a Full-Court Press

H/T AmmoLand.

The time has come for California gun owners to make their voices heard.

California Flag Guns Gun Control iStock - 884191010
Thousands of these new gun owners live in California and they will have the chance to decide whether their 2nd Amendment rights will be protected or violated.  –iStock 884191010

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Since the beginning of 2020, 5 million people have made the decision to be a first-time gun owner. This is a stunning number and speaks mightily to the mood of the nation. Thousands of these new gun owners live in California and they will have the chance to decide whether their 2nd Amendment rights will be protected or violated. Elections can have dire consequences and Gun Owners of California is launching a full-court press to reach those new gun owners. They need to know exactly what’s at stake – and we need your help. Please give to GOC so we can reach and educate these new gun owners as they go to the polls. The stakes could not be higher.

Also, the minutes are ticking down for the 2019-2020 Legislative Session and GOC has not stopped making noise – whether it’s the Hefty Lefty’s or COVID-19, GOC hasn’t stopped fighting against the anti-gun forces at the State Capitol. The Legislature is waiting until the last minute to jam through bad bills that step on your rights. Please let your elected representative know (click HERE to be directed to your representative) your opinions on these reckless, unconstitutional bills before they have a chance to get to the Governor’s desk:

 

AB 2362: Muratsuchi/D

Allows DOJ to fine gun stores; places retailers in jeopardy of going out of business for minor paperwork violations.

AB 2847: Chiu/D

Forces manufacturers to use microstamping technology in order to have handguns on the California approved roster. Also, this bill deletes three models from the roster for everyone “new” microstamped handgun.

SB 914: Portantino /D

This bill is a complex and convoluted mess that will seriously undermine youth shooting programs throughout the state by mandating that only parents – not a relative, a school or legitimate shooting club – can provide a firearm to anyone under 18.

SB 1175: Stern/D

Makes it illegal to import or possess African species trophies (legal proof of possession required to be exempt). Also provides financial incentives for those who report possible illegal mounts. Regardless of whether an individual hunts out of the USA, this is the camel’s nose under the tent to eliminate hunting in the state.

We are wrestling with forces that have unlimited storehouses of money – yet we continue to fight with everything that we have – in the legislative halls, the courts and the elections.

NJ Governor Uses COVID Crisis to Propose Gun Control Taxes

H/T AmmoLand. 

This is what happens when you give DemocRats power elections have consequences.

 

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- As the saying goes, “If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again.” Democratic New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy is taking the mantra to a new level by proposing “stronger gun control” in the Garden State. This time, he’s using the COVID-19 pandemic to raise taxes on law-abiding gun owners and those wishing to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

 

Gov. Murphy has tried his best during the crisis to penalize lawful gun owners, but now it will be up to the state legislature to approve or reject his new antigun proposals. New Jersey residents shouldn’t hold their breath as antigun Democrats control both chambers by wide margins.

Gun Control for You is Nothing New

More gun control has been a pillar for Gov. Murphy since he took office in 2018. In his first two years in office, he pushed for and signed into law 10 more-stringent gun control laws in a state already known for having some of the strictest gun laws in the country. In 2020, the spreading coronavirus pandemic gave him an opportunity to do even more, and he didn’t delay.

Nearly 5 million Americans became so concerned for their safety and that of their loved ones and property that purchased a firearm for the first time. The reasons were all around us. Reports of local law enforcement becoming stretched thin, criminals being released from jails and quickly committing violent crimes again, and now more recently violent riots and looting in cities and cries of “defund the police” have increased.

Gov. Murphy, who now wants to levy more fees and taxes to close the COVID budget gaps, actively worked to keep gun buyers out of stores. He shut down firearm retailers and related businesses, deeming them “non-essential” at a time when they were most essential. He faced immediate backlash and lawsuits, leading him to backtrack and allow retailers to open again. Gov. Murphy tried explaining his reasoning, stating “I wasn’t thinking about the Bill of Rights.”

Raising Taxes as Means for More Gun Control

New Jersey is already known as a high-taxed blue state operating in the red. Now, to address next year’s budget shortfall and seeing an opportunity to further squelch the Second Amendment, Gov. Murphy proposed massive taxes and fees on firearms and ammunition such that he’d price out thousands of law-abiding citizens from exercising their God-given rights enshrined and protected by the Second Amendment.

Murphy’s budget proposal attempts to close a $5.6 billion – with a “B” – hole in the Garden State by hiking taxes and fees on firearm services and businesses that might generate $6 million. That amounts to one-tenth of one percent. It’s antigun window dressing and the governor knows it.

Gov. Murphy’s proposed antigun increases include raising the handgun purchasing permit fee 2,400 percent from $2 to $50; the cost of a firearm ID card by 1,900 percent from $5 to $100; the price of a handgun carry permit 7,900 percent from $50 to $400; the fee for a gun retail dealer license by 9,900 percent from $50 to $500; and the fee for a firearm manufacturer 900 percent from $150 to $1,500. There are, or course, additional fee increases as well.

If it all sounds familiar, it is.  Gov. Murphy tried and failed at this scheme before. This time, though, he’s tying it to a pandemic.

With more New Jersey handgun applications submitted so far in 2020 than in 2018 and 2019 combined, it’s no wonder law-abiding firearm owners, as well as those considering purchasing a gun for the first time, feel threatened. In trying to persuade the Democratic-controlled New Jersey legislature to approve his budget, Gov. Murphy assured elected officials these are “judiciously” considered hikes that are needed. In other words, be thankful the punishment doesn’t go further.

Antigun Birds of a Feather

Gov. Murphy isn’t alone in using the pandemic to infringe on the constitutional rights of lawful Americans. Gov. Murphy’s northern neighbor, New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, behaved similarly as did New Mexico Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. These three governors have something else in common. They all forced gun stores to close during the pandemic despite the Department of Homeland Security saying gun stores are essential business.

So far this year more than 5 million Americans felt so compelled to protect themselves and their families that for the first time they exercised their Second Amendment rights and purchased a firearm. Thousands are from states with these governors at the top.

Punishing those who exercise their rights is abhorrent. Using it as an excuse to cover for poor leadership during a health crisis is not the sort of behavior citizens should expect from their governors.

Trump Lands Major Endorsements From Democrat Mayors in Minnesota

H/T Town Hall.

These DemocRat Mayors are smart enough to know Joe Pee Pads Biden and Kalama Knee Pads Harris are bad for America and American business.

A number of Democrat mayors from Minnesota endorsed President Donald Trump for a second term on Friday as Vice President Mike Pence campaigns in the state. 

 

“Like many in our region, we have voted for Democrats over many decades. We have watched as our constituents’ jobs left not only the Iron Range, but our country. By putting tariffs on our products and supporting bad trade deals, politicians like Joe Biden did nothing to help the working class. We lost thousands of jobs, and generations of young people have left the Iron Range in order to provide for their families with good-paying jobs elsewhere. Today, we don’t recognize the Democratic Party. It has been moved so far to the left it can no longer claim to be advocates of the working class. The hard-working Minnesotans that built their lives and supported their families here on the Range have been abandoned by radical Democrats. We didn’t choose to leave the Democratic Party, the party left us,” the letter, signed by Virginia Mayor Larry Cuffe, Chisholm Mayor John Champa, Ely Mayor Chuck Novak, Two Harbors Mayor Chris Swanson, Eveleth Mayor Robert Vlaisavljevich and Babbitt Mayor Andrea Zupancich, states. 

“Yet, four years ago, something wonderful happened. Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States, and he stood up to China, implemented tax cuts, and fought for the working class. Now, four years later, the Iron Range is roaring back to life and for the first time in a very long time, locals are hopeful because of this President’s policies and willingness to fight for us,” the mayors continue. “Lifelong politicians like Joe Biden are out of touch with the working class, out of touch with what the country needs, and out of touch with those of us here on the Iron Range and in small towns like ours across our nation.”

Polling in the North Star State has shown President Trump gaining ground in recent weeks, especially as riots in Minneapolis continue to rage out of control. 

 

Jacob Blake’s Father: ‘Violence and Looting and Burning’ Will Not Heal My Son

H/T Western Journal.

      Jacob Blake Sr is correct all of this rioting, looting and burning will not bring one person back or make his son walk again.

Jacob Blake’s father rebuked the rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and said “violence and looting and burning” will not heal his son or bring back any of the other men and women who have been killed or injured in controversial confrontations with police.

Jacob Blake Sr. told CNN Friday that the riots in Kenosha and across the country won’t help his son, who was left paralyzed after a police-involved shooting on Sunday.

“You have to understand that we don’t prescribe to useless and violence,” Blake told host Alisyn Camerota.

“Violence and looting and burning, that’s not going to bring Trayvon [Martin] back. That’s not going to bring George Floyd back. That’s not going to bring Tamir Rice back. I could go on and on. That’s not going to bring them back.”

Martin was fatally shot in February 2012 in Florida by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, CNN reported.

Floyd died on May 25 in Minneapolis after a police officer knelt on his neck for roughly nine minutes during an arrest, sparking widespread protests across the country.

Rice, a 12-year-old black child, also became a symbol for the Black Lives Matter movement after a white Cleveland, Ohio, police officer shot and killed him in 2014, according to The Associated Press.

“That’s not going to make my son get up out of that bed and walk,” Blake told CNN in response to the violence and riots in Kenosha.

“Only God could get him up out of the bed and make him walk. And if he does not, then that’s God’s will. That’s his will. There’s nothing you can do past his will.”

He added, “I can’t be angry because I still have to be faithful.”

Blake’s mother, Julia Jackson, made similar comments in an interview earlier this week.

“My family and I are very hurt — and quite frankly disgusted,” she said.

“And as his mother, please don’t burn up property and cause havoc and tear your own homes down in my son’s name. … [T]o use my child … our tragedy, to react in that manner, is just not acceptable.”

She added, “And it’s not helping Jacob.

“It’s not helping Jacob or any other of the men and women who have suffered in these areas.”

Blake, who is black, was shot after police responded to a domestic violence call, according to the Kenosha News.

After a video of the altercation went viral, peaceful protests turned violent, the Washington Examiner reported.

Blake’s father said his son has been handcuffed to his hospital bed, according to CNN.

NYC Gun “Buyback” Nets Fewer Than 50 Firearms

H/T Bearing Arms.

There is o doubt the anti-gun crowd is patting themselves on the back for this worthless gun buyback that will do nothing  to lower the crime rate in New York City.

 

As New York City gets ready for what promises to be another violent and bloody weekend, a couple of local politicians are patting themselves on the back for a so-called gun buyback in Queens that resulted in 44 firearms being turned over to the NYPD in exchange for $200, no questions asked.

As residents of New York City continue to be tormented by a wave of gun violence this summer, Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato joined Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz and the NYPD’s 100th and 101st precincts for their latest “Gun Buyback” program at Macedonia Baptist Church in the Arverne section of Rockaway.

“This is an incredible event hosted by DA Katz and the NYPD as they work to combat increasing gun violence in our community in a tangible and meaningful way,” Pheffer Amato said. “Forty-four guns off the streets is a significant number and will save countless lives. Programs like this are so vital as they incentivize the turning in of dangerous weapons with no questions asked.”

 

Programs like this aren’t vital to the community, though they may be vital to politicians like Pheffer Amato and Melinda Katz. After all, compensated confiscation efforts like these don’t reduce crime, but they do allow officials to claim they’re “doing something” to address the shootings and killings that have skyrocketed in New York City over the past three months.

“We cannot prosecute our way out of this. We need everyone to work together, my office, law enforcement, our faith leaders and everyone in the community, to stop the violence,” Katz said. “The ultimate goal of this initiative is to get as many guns as possible off the streets of Queens County and make our community safe for everyone. We are all partners in this mission.”

If you can’t prosecute your way to safety, then why not work on revising New York City’s gun laws to actually allow the average citizen to both keep and bear arms for self-defense? Instead of taking that common sense step, Katz and virtually every other elected official in the Big Apple is content to keep the draconian gun laws in place so that as few people as possible can exercise the privilege to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

I’ve got news for the D.A.; you can’t “buy back” your way out of this either. The solution to stemming the rising tide of violence in New York City is simple, though it’s not easy. The NYPD and prosecutors across the city have to focus on the most violent offenders. They have to ensure that arrests are made when a shooting takes place, and then they must ensure that there are consequences for the violence.

Trying to turn New York City gun-free won’t work. Criminals will continue to obtain firearms on the illicit market, and the shootings will continue while law-abiding residents are unable to protect themselves. It’s the worst possible way to try to address violent crime, so of course it’s the route that the politicians in charge of the city are wholeheartedly embracing.

 

“Guardian” Stops Armed Intruder At Florida School

H/T Bearing Arms.

How many live were saved by this armed guardian?

An armed staffer at a Florida high school ended up holding an intruder for police on Thursday after the suspect hopped a fence and entered the Leesburg High School campus.

According to Fox 35 in Orlando, Florida, the would-be intruder was found with both drugs and ammunition on him, as well as a flare gun with a shotgun shell inside.

 

According to the arrest affidavit, the man — identified as 30-year-old Jabari Scott — had a flare gun in his right waistband but it contained a 410 shotgun shell in the barrel, “ready to fire.” An additional shotgun shell, nine rounds of .380 ammunition, one 9mm round, one .223 round, and one 12 gauge shotgun slug shell were also in the man’s possession.

In addition, police said that Scott had a white, powdery substance on him too, which tested positive for cocaine. It was said to be in five, small Ziploc-style bags. He also had an unidentified brown powder substance on him, which did not test positive for heroin or meth.

The Leesburg Police Department said that Scott claimed that the items listed above were actually his little brother’s and that he did not want him to get caught with them.

I don’t know if Scott’s little brother has a criminal record, but Jabari Scott has multiple felonies to his name, according to police, and this bust is likely going to be bad news for him. Possession of a single round of ammunition by a convicted felon can be punished by up to a decade behind bars in a federal prison, though it’s unknown at this point whether the U.S. Attorney will take an interest in this case.

Classes are taking place at Leesburg High at the moment. In fact, the school year kicked off this week, so there were students on campus when the armed intruder appeared. The Guardian program worked exactly as it’s supposed to; the armed school staffer identified and stopped the threat before any students could possibly be harmed. In this case, no trigger was pulled and Mr. Scott went off to the local jail instead of the local hospital, and classes went on as normally as they can thanks to the COVID-19 virus.

Florida’s Guardian program was put in place after the shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018. The program is officially called the Coach Aaron Feis Schoo Guardian Program, after the MSD teacher who lost his life while trying to protect students from their assailant. Lake County is one of 43 counties in Florida that have put the Guardian program in place, and it looks like it’s already paying off for students, parents, and educators alike.

By the way, the activists at Everytown and Moms Demand Action despise the Guardian program because “gUnZ aRe BaD.” I doubt this story will change any minds over at Gun Control, Inc. but I bet you won’t find too many critics of the program wandering the halls of Leesburg High tomorrow. When it comes to protecting the lives of students, an armed response is a very good thing.
