Here we go again. Never let a crisis go to waste. The war cry of the Left. But is any of what is happening truly a crisis? Why is it that the obvious solutions are always countered by the obvious rhetoric designed to lead the viewer or reader down the predetermined path of ideology, an ideology which can’t be defended against common sense?
We have the “March for Life” which should be known by its historical name, “Death by “Gun Control””. I would suggest that these young dupes, as well as the well meaning Leftist lemmings such as Oprah, actually educate themselves before leading the rest of us to the “Killing Fields”. Ever hear of the Khmer Rouge?
I will make it easy on you. This is the link which leads you to a “Death Chart” plus governmental impositions on the citizens’ right to keep and own firearms: http://jpfo.org/filegen-a-m/deathgc.htm … this is what the author and founder of JPFO added:
We at JPFO recently received a letter from an angry and very articulate fellow who took the vast majority of gun owners to task for not being NRA members. He rightly points out that there are more than eighty million gun owners and only five million members of any pro-gun organization, the NRA obviously being the largest. Aaron Zelman, Founder and Director of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.
So let me see. We have two or three hundred thousand young people whose minds have been made mush by their teachers who don’t train them to think or question but rather accept as whole cloth anything they are taught. Out of those 80 million gun owners, many of whom are children who have been properly trained in the use of firearms, they are all supposed to give up their weapons at the behest of a 97 year old retired liberal Supreme Court justice who believes the Second Amendment should be repealed? Along with that, John Paul Stephens as well as the Pope believe the voting age should be lowered so these indoctrinated kids can help in furthering their socialist cause in destroying the greatest Nation ever conceived? But wait a minute …
Aren’t these the same people who want the age to own a gun increased to 21 to match drinking and smoking laws? These same people don’t have a problem in sending an 18 year old off to war. Why? Just look at the agenda they have and you will understand “any means to justify the end”.
Gun march – really? … no one can call out a kid for being naive, pushed to conclusions by liberal Second Amendment hating teachers. Now for the reality check. If you looked at the “death chart” you will see many of the same restrictions on gun ownership and control put in by these past regimes was recently imposed and instituted by Barack Obama. The results? Thirty to forty million Chinese killed over two different regimes. Cambodia, 2 million killed by 13 to 15 year old kids indoctrinated by the dictator Pol Pot. Russian … in the millions, Guatemala … a couple hundred thousand … Idi Amin … will America be any different? … do you get the picture?
For all of those of you who want to get rid of all guns, let me ask you a simple question. You are in a municipal or commercial building. An active shooter enters the building. Would you rather be present knowing all guns have been taken away or knowing there are people carrying concealed weapons for the exact purpose of dealing with this situation? To make it even simpler for those of you who prefer allegories, would you rather be a sheep with no shepherd and no guard dog or mule or have a fierce sheep dog baring its fangs when necessary?
Don’t make your decisions based on emotion. Make them using logic. High school kids with no worldly experience and kept purposely deprived of the world’s history don’t need to be taken seriously. All you have to do is look who is behind funding them and encouraging them to do the dirty work for which an adult would be called out …

Next subject on the State and National level is the already settled debate on Federal versus State’s rights. The city of Los Alamitos passed an ordinance opting out of the sanctuary State law which is unconstitutional. How can I say that when current litigation by the Attorney General of the United States, Jeff Sessions, has not wound its way through court? I direct you to the United States Constitution.
This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.
“Article VI, Paragraph 2 of the U.S. Constitution is commonly referred to as the Supremacy Clause. It establishes that the federal constitution, and federal law generally, take precedence over state laws, and even state constitutions. It prohibits states from interfering with the federal government’s exercise of its constitutional powers, and from assuming any functions that are exclusively entrusted to the federal government. It does not, however, allow the federal government to review or veto state laws before they take effect.”

From the Annenberg Classroom:
Article 1 Section 8 of the US Constitution –
To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian Tribes;To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;
Immigration Law: An Overview
Federal immigration law determines whether a person is an alien, the rights, duties, and obligations associated with being an alien in the United States, and how aliens gain residence or citizenship within the United States. It also provides the means by which certain aliens can become legally naturalized citizens with full rights of citizenship. Immigration law serves as a gatekeeper for the nation’s border, determining who may enter, how long they may stay, and when they must leave.
Congress has complete authority over immigration. Presidential power does not extend beyond refugee policy. Except for questions regarding aliens’ constitutional rights, the courts have generally found the immigration issue as nonjusticiable. (Author’s note: Definition of nonjusticiable. : not justiciable : not capable of being decided by legal principles or by a court of justice.)
States have limited legislative authority regarding immigration, and 28 U.S.C. § 1251 details the full extent of state jurisdiction. Generally, 28 U.S.C. § 994 details the federal sentencing guidelines for illegal entry into the country.
By controlling the visa process, the federal government can achieve the goals of its immigration policies.
It would appear that Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown and the illegal felonious alien loving bleeding heart liberal mayor of Oakland can’t comprehend basic legal precedents or the construction of our legal system including Federalism. Didn’t the mayor and the governor take an oath of office to “uphold the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”? This was, in fact, one of the primary bases that the council in Los Alamitos used as a reason for their legislation.
Los Alamitos is a town of 12,000. How is it they have the intestinal fortitude to challenge the obvious paradox of having to defend both California and Federal law when they conflict with each other? How is it that no one else is taking action? Well, in fact, others are.
The County of Orange, where Los Alamitos is, is contemplating action by either joining the US government in their suit by filing an amicus brief or by initiating their own litigation. Other towns, such as Fullerton, Aliso Viejo, Buena Park, Huntington Beach, and Upland are all considering the same action taken by Los Alamitos. Is your town?
The obvious is the rhetoric coming from racists such as California’s Senate leader Kevin de León, who authored Senate Bill 54, who defends the state law and said it complies with federal law. The council’s “symbolic vote in favor of President Trump’s racist immigration enforcement policies is disappointing,” de León said in an e-mail.
Sorry Kevin but you are the racist, you are putting lawbreakers ahead of lawful US citizens, and you are obvious. Perhaps Kevin has never heard of the rule of law. Protecting law breakers because of their race or ethnic background labels you for what you are, Kevin.
For those of you who feel that deporting illegals of any size, shape or form will lead to “breaking up families”, I have a solution for you: deport them all including anyone in the chain which also contains the felon. A little “personal responsibility and accountability” would end the problem. Who knows the family better than members of it. You don’t bring trouble makers with you. Problem solved.

Finally, lets talk about the budget bill Trump signed, the Establishment swamp plus giving you a few more solutions. I found it interesting how Meet The Press didn’t cover this. Why? Because the liberals and RINO’s got everything they wanted.
Don’t bring up the fact this was exactly how Obamacare was put into place. Present the bill at the last second possible so no one has time to read it and the swamp critters, known as the majority of the House and Senate, pass it to avoid a “shutdown”. It is time to shutdown government when they conduct themselves thusly.
I agree that Trump should have vetoed this bill on this basis alone. I also know that Trump got one thing he wanted, increased military spending. Given the statements coming out of Planned Parenthood on Twitter, these loons needed to be defunded. How is it possible that both houses of Congress, both controlled by the President’s party, refuse to do what is right? Simple. They are politicians and nothing more.
These phonies need to be removed and replaced not by Democrats but by TEA party individuals, constitutional conservatives, and the likes of the Freedom Caucus. Are you telling me we can’t find good candidates in a country of 300 million?
Subsequent to the president signing the bill, I found the uttered reactions on talk radio quite interesting. On Friday, many disgruntled individuals who were fence sitters in the last election now declare they wouldn’t vote for Trump again. On Monday, the reaction flipped as the realization that something positive was done although the status quo was continued to a large extent.
A president who gets 40% of his campaign agenda accomplished in one year is getting the job done. Trump has set up the US economy for a comeback. Hiring Larry Kudlow will add to that. While many believe John Bolton is a warmonger, my impression is he is a no nonsense guy who fits perfectly into a regime whose ultimate goal is draining the swamp and bringing America back from the brink. And now we are set to vastly improve our military?
The distractions of the lame stream media and fake news outlets are inconsequential. I don’t care with whom Trump had an affair, what he said in the past, or that he declared bankruptcy. I care about what he is doing. I care that Congress has not allowed him to fully staff his Cabinet. I care that Trump is attempting to move the country forward while the opposition continues to attempt to make us less than we can be through stranglehold legislation and regulation.
It is obvious you need to muse about my rhetoric … enjoy yourselves …
