Pro-Gun Rallies: Why the Turnout Was So Low

This one isn’t hard at all to understand.

Don’t think for a second that there isn’t MASSIVE support across this country for the 2nd Amendment and gun rights.  However, supporters of the 2nd Amendment and most other conservative causes aren’t anything like the protesters on the left.

The biggest difference is that most law-abiding, Constitution-loving, honest conservatives have these things called “jobs” and “lives” that must be attended to daily.  Most can’t just skip work to attend political rallies.  They’re not being paid by liberal billionaires like George Soros and many other liberal sources to carry signs and stir up trouble.

Do not make the mistake of believing that silence is acquiescence (lefties, you may need to look that on up).  We will only allow ourselves to be pushed so far before we push back.  

It’s only a matter of time before one or more of the left’s useful idiots, who are being stirred to action by people who will NEVER suffer the consequences of these actions, gets shot when they surround a conservative carrying a gun who doesn’t know the intentions of the mob surrounding him/her, and legitimately fears for their life and the lives of their family.  And the Maxine Waters and other democrat politicians, and leftist media figures and movie stars who are encouraging their sheep-like followers to engage in such activity will NEVER be at risk of being harmed because it’s their idiot followers doing their dirty work for them.

Oh, and lest we forget those on the left calling for revolution, you need to understand that if the 80 to 100 million law-abiding gun owners were the problem, you would know it by now.  But if you want to keep pushing, we have one thing to say.

We’re your Huckleberry.

Organizers of pro-gun rallies lament low turnout

 A group of protesters gathers in Washington, D.C., for the March for Our Rights, a rally supporting gun ownership. Similar protests took place in other cities, with the intent to outdo the March for Our Lives gun-control rallies, but organizers were disappointed in low turnout.

CHICAGO – Student-led rallies around the country on Saturday aimed to show support for gun rights, though their effort drew smaller-than-expected crowds in a bid to counter the well-funded and organized youth gun-control lobby that emerged after the massacre in a Florida high school earlier this year.

Here in Chicago, people rallied in a corner of Millennium Park. In Los Angeles, protesters yelled “gun rights are human rights” as they marched near Pershing Square. In Washington, an American flag billowed against a backdrop of the Capitol as attendees said guns are being used as scapegoats and that society’s problems run deeper than firearms.

Students who say their views have been silenced in recent months as vocal gun-control advocates have been monopolizing attention used the marches as a way to raise awareness of their fears that hasty solutions could lead to an erosion of the Second Amendment.

Colin FitzSimmons, 13, of Algonquin, Illinois, spoke at the Chicago rally, sounding alarms that liberal gun-control efforts really want to “to disarm the populace.” People held signs reading “we’re not going away” and “take back gun rights.”

“Our generation isn’t going to embrace gun control,” Colin said, noting that any changes to gun laws need to be carefully considered. “The devil is in the details.”

Organizers of Saturday’s marches said many conservative students feel as though their views are not being taken into consideration in the debate about school shootings, and the marches on Saturday were planned as a way to show that not all students support gun control.

Planning for Saturday’s rallies started in April, weeks after gun control rallies took place in Washington and other cities. Some of Saturday’s organizers found one another on Instagram and Facebook and decided to speak out against what they saw as an attack on gun ownership. They expected a modest turnout on Saturday, but far fewer people showed up than organizers had hoped.

In Chicago, organizers planned for about 125 people, but the rally drew approximately 35. The group gathered in a corner of Millennium Park, not the great lawn, because organizers did not secure a permit and park security forced them to leave.

Earlier in the morning in the same city, hundreds of anti-gun violence protesters shut down 10 blocks of the Dan Ryan Expressway, one of the busiest interstates in the United States. Their march along the highway was in protest of gun violence and gun-related deaths in Chicago, and the disruption drew widespread attention – and some scorn, from groups including the National Rifle Association.

Kevin Yan, an 18-year-old University of Chicago student, said he is “an outlier” at his school because he is passionate about the Second Amendment. He said he has never owned a gun and has never shot a gun, but he believes gun ownership is “a critical American tradition” and “really important for self-defense.”

“The media always says the millennial generation has decided it’s against gun rights,” he said. “We are here to show that’s not true.”

In Palm Beach, Florida, about 100 people were expected to rally at a park; 13 came, including organizer Ashley Johnson, three speakers and the parents of two of the speakers.

The event was meant to be a counterpoint to the March for Our Lives rallies that attracted thousands across the country after the February shooting, including at events in Florida.

“The goal is to be just as successful as March for Our Lives,” Johnson said. “We want to outdo them.”

Ralph Curra, 14, who was an eighth grader at Westglades Middle school, which is adjacent to Marjory Stoneman Douglas, spoke at the event. He recalled hearing the screams from next door, and being on lockdown for five hours as the investigation began into the Feb. 14 attack.

“Raising the age to buy a gun, all you parents out there, when you send your child to college, don’t you want them to be able to protect themselves from criminals?” he asked. “The new laws will leave your child vulnerable to attack in today’s dangerous society.”

Johnson said she was disappointed in the turnout.

“I don’t know why more people didn’t show up. I think a lot of conservatives are just afraid to show up for public events,” she said through tears.

In Washington, a few dozen high schoolers, college students and recent graduates came together near the Capitol for the Second Amendment march. American flags and “Make America Great Again” hats dotted the crowd.

Tyler Yzaguirre, president of the Second Amendment Institute, told the gathering that although they were few in number, they would show the left that no one should be afraid to defend their rights.

Organizer Morgan Sachs greeted the group and thanked everyone for coming.

“The media doesn’t seem to like to talk about pro-gun students, they only want to talk about anti-gun rhetoric,” she said. “Our voices are going to be heard now.”

Will Hillary Clinton Run Again in 2020?

Hillary Clinton wants and seeks only ONE thing in life:  POWER.  If you understand that, everything she does makes sense.

Look at who Hillary Clinton is.  She has no morals.  Her values are anti-American and self-serving.  Her plan and vision for America will accelerate us down the path to becoming the next Venezuela.  She is a multi-time loser who can’t take the hint that AMERICA DOESN’T WANT YOU.  

Yet still, she persists.

It’s like watching John McCain grasping desperately, and SPITEFULLY, at the straws of power.  On his death bed, one would think he would want to spend his remaining days with his family instead of trying to do anything he could to thwart a non-establishment Republican president.  It’s almost like he’s bitter about his stinging loss to the amateur Marxist Obama, and if McCain couldn’t be the next Republican president (after all, it was “his turn,” right), then there’s no way he would let an upstart outsider like Trump succeed in that endeavor.  

If McCain makes it that long, maybe he’ll be Hillary’s running mate.  She’ll drag him around on a ventilator for the sympathy points.

Is Hillary Clinton secretly planning to run in 2020?

By Michael Goodwin    July 7, 2018 | 10:12pm

Hillary Clinton

The messages convey a sense of urgency, and are coming with increasing frequency. They are short, focused reactions to the latest “outrage” committed by President Trump.

Some end by asking for money, some urge participation in protests. All read as if they are sent from the official headquarters of the resistance.

Hillary Clinton is up to something. Continue reading

Amy Coney Barrett: Progressives Use Religious Ignorance, Bigotry to Slime SCOTUS Candidate | National Review

The left has always said “we can’t have a religious litmus test as a qualification for government office.” Oh, the irony that they are now openly using a RELIGIOUS LITMUS TEST to DISQUALIFY someone from public office. However, coming from the party that denied God three times at their presidential convention, and strives daily to remove God from every place in our society, this not surprising at all.

Democrats hate God, and the atheistic ideologies of socialism, communism, and Marxism that they embrace prove it.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Progressive efforts to block the highly qualified Amy Coney Barrett from the Supreme Court because of her faith betray our nation’s founding ideals.

WATERGATE EVERY WEEK: USING THE FBI TO SUPPRESS A POLITICAL REVOLUTION

A new Watergate every week.  A very appropriate analogy to what his happening in our government today.  The author of the article gets this exactly right.  And he also correctly nails the essence of WHY we’re seeing a new Watergate every week.  Here’s the money quote that sums it up.

These are the police state tactics usually used by Communist dictatorships where domestic security agencies accuse the political opposition of treason, spy on them, raid their homes on fake charges and then look for anything that can be used to put them away. Just like in Russia. And for the same reasons.

Russian domestic security agencies, from the KGB to the FSB, used these tactics against political opponents who might pose a threat to their rule. That is exactly what’s happening here.

The democrats are communists.  

Everything the democrats believe and support is not found in the Constitution, but can be found in the Communist Manifesto.

All the people they look up to are Marxists, communists, socialists, and acolytes of them who prescribe how to advance the cause of totalitarian communism.

All of the tactics they employ to destroy their political opponents are those of the communist agitators such as Alinsky.

Everything the democrats stand for directly conflicts with the things America was founded on and for.

We are witnessing a communist revolution, or more accurately a Menshevik revolution right here in America just as took place in Russia.  The history of communism across the world is not one of peace, prosperity, and happiness.  It is a history of totalitarianism, oppression, death, and suffering.  It is important to understand this history to see where the communists in America are taking us.  For the most recent example, look at Venezuela.  It NEVER ends well.

The chances that communism will work THIS time are about as good as surviving a jump from the top of the Empire State Building on the SECOND attempt.  If we don’t stop it here and now, they will destroy America as we know it, and we will be the next Venezuela. 



WATERGATE EVERY WEEK: USING THE FBI TO SUPPRESS A POLITICAL REVOLUTION

From Steele to Mueller, the cost of overturning the 2016 election.

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism.

In the early seventies, political operatives disguised as delivery men broke into a Washington D.C. office. These efforts to spy on the political opposition would culminate in what we know as Watergate.

In the late teens, political operatives disguised as FBI agents, NSA personnel and other employees of the Federal government eavesdropped, harassed and raided the offices of the political opposition.

The raids of Michael Cohen’s hotel room, home and office are just this week’s Watergate.

Political operatives have now seized privileged communications between the President of the United States and his lawyer. Despite fairy tales about a clean process, these communications will be harvested by the counterparts of Peter Strzok, who unlike him are still on the case at the FBI, some of it will appear in the Washington Post and the New York Times, and some will be passed along to other political allies.

That’s what happened at every juncture of Watergate 2.0. And it only follows that it will happen again.

Just like the eavesdropping, the process will be compartmentalized for maximum plausible deniability. The leakers will be protected by their superiors. The media will shrilly focus the public’s attention on the revelations in the documents rather than on the more serious crimes committed in obtaining them.

Nixon couldn’t have even dreamed of doing this in his wildest fantasies. But Obama could and did. Now his operatives throughout the government are continuing the work that they began during his regime.

Attorney-client privilege is just one of those rights we have to give up to protect ourselves from a conspiracy theory invented by the Clinton campaign. (But no amount of dead Americans can ever justify ending immigration from Islamic terror states or deporting illegal alien gang members.)

We are at the latest stage of a process that began when the Clinton campaign funded a dossier alleging foreign ties by her political opponent. It did this using a law firm while lying on its FEC disclosures about payments to that firm. (But unlike Cohen, Hillary’s lawyers will never be raided by the FBI.)

That dossier was then used to justify eavesdropping on Trump associates by political allies in the State Department, the FBI, the CIA and the National Security Council. This wasn’t really breaking new ground. Obama had already been caught using the NSA to spy on members of Congress opposed to his Iran Deal.

The contents of the dossier were rambling nonsense. Its claims about Michael Cohen were easily disproven. But that covert investigation was transformed into an overt one with Mueller. And Mueller’s very public investigation follows the same path as the secret investigation by Obama associates. Both used the dubious claims of the Clinton dossier as the starting point for an endless fishing expedition.

Eavesdrop enough, raid enough, squeeze enough and you will eventually find something. And even if you don’t, you can always manipulate them into denying something and nail them for lying to the FBI.

Keep squeezing and maybe you’ll even find someone willing to lie under oath for you.

Mueller has yet to deliver on Russian collusion. But Susan Rice and Samantha Power couldn’t do it either. Instead they all assembled a vast network of international conspiracy theories whose only purpose is to justify more raids, more eavesdropping and more fishing expeditions.

These are the police state tactics usually used by Communist dictatorships where domestic security agencies accuse the political opposition of treason, spy on them, raid their homes on fake charges and then look for anything that can be used to put them away. Just like in Russia. And for the same reasons.

Russian domestic security agencies, from the KGB to the FSB, used these tactics against political opponents who might pose a threat to their rule. That is exactly what’s happening here.

This isn’t just an ideological war. Washington D.C. is fighting to suppress a political revolution.

Even Obama and Hillary’s political operatives couldn’t have pushed the DOJ and other agencies this far outside their comfort zone under ordinary circumstances. There had been previous abuses of power, under JFK, LBJ, Nixon and Clinton, but there has been nothing like this since the Alien and Sedition Acts or Madison’s Machiavellian scapegoating of the Federalists for the disastrous War of 1812.

To apolitical operatives like Mueller, Strzok and their many allies in the FBI, Trump is an unprecedented threat to the business of the Federal government. They shrug at the economy or tax reform, except where it affects them. And social issues don’t move them either. They are as interested in the ideological left-right battles as the nomenklatura were in the works of Karl Marx.

There are indeed two Americas. One is your country. The other consists of the people who run it. Both have their headquarters in Washington D.C. And they get along pretty well most of the time.

The people are allowed to vote for whomever their party chooses. They can even vote for less respectable choices as long as they understand that those people will never get anywhere. Then the people they select will go to Washington D.C. and be briefed on what they can and can’t do. There they will rent pricey condos, bicker with each other, eat at nice restaurants and, in theory, make laws.

Then the nomenklatura, the bureaucracy that runs the country, will transform laws into policy. The policy will be shaped by judicial rulings and expert opinion. By the time the policy sausage comes out the other end of the Imperial City, it will have very little to do with what the voters might have wanted.

There are plenty of gatekeepers to keep a common sense idea from being implemented. If a congressman proposes that sensible measure you suggest to him, it will never leave the committee or it’ll be watered down. The Senate will neuter it or the president, on the advice of his advisors, will veto.

And then came Trump.

The gates began to collapse. The nomenklatura propped them up. Judicial rulings were used to block everything. The petty bureaucracies within government agencies stalled and sabotaged. Former agency bosses, their internal allies and the media colluded to target Trump’s agency heads with scandals.

The elected head of the government and the unelected heads of the government were at war.

Mueller is the tip of the nomenklatura’s spear. The DOJ is the bluntest weapon in the D.C. arsenal and for the first time it’s been completely unleashed to undo the results of a presidential election.

The same leftists that fought for the civil rights of terrorists and drug dealers, cheer government eavesdropping on the political opposition and the violation of attorney-client privilege because it was never about civil rights, it was about protecting their political allies and punishing their enemies.

Radical movements are inherently totalitarian. And totalitarians view process, whether of elections or criminal justice proceedings, as a train that they ride until they take power and then disembark.

As Roger Nash Baldwin, a co-founder of the ACLU, wrote, “If I aid the reactionaries to get free speech now and then… it is only because those liberties help to create a more hospitable atmosphere for working class liberties… When that power of the working class is once achieved, as it has been only in the Soviet Union, I am for maintaining it by any means whatever.”

The working class of Washington D.C. has achieved quite a bit of power along with a fortune in overseas bank accounts, mansions, private schools and all the privileges of membership in the ruling class.

But the leftists cheering Mueller’s abuses might pause to consider the consequences.

The Romans broke their republic. Now we’re breaking ours. The pink hat brigade enlisted the Praetorian Guard to bring down Trump. But the Roman lesson is that once you break the republic, it stays broken. Once you use political mercenaries like Mueller to overturn an election for you, they might not stop.

The left likes to believe that it can close Pandora’s Box whenever it pleases. History tells us differently.

The Praetorian Guard didn’t stop. What can be done once, will be done again. When control of the DOJ and FBI matters more than elections, then voters will be irrelevant and the Praetorian of D.C. will rule.

And then a new Watergate really will happen every week.

Democrat Crybabies Walk Out of Speech About Guns, Continue Childish Track Record

Note: This post is from March 2018, but was inadvertently placed in draft rather than being published.

Democrats got up and walked out rather than face facts and truth about gun control being presented by Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas. This is a pattern of behavior for democrats stretching back years. Rather than stand like adults and engage in civil debate, and then cast their votes, these cowards take their ball and go home if they can’t get their way. To their credit, they do fight like crazed animals for what their base wants, and to gain/maintain power, unlike the spineless GOP who can’t pass up an opportunity to fold like a cheap lawn chair. But HOW democrats fight starts out as childish and immature, then moves to illegal, unethical, unconstitutional, un-American, and downright despicable. That’s just who the democrats are. Marxist socialists who believe that the end justifies the means, no matter how out of bounds those means are, and how despicable the end they seek.

Remember 2003 in Texas? The Republicans were about to pass a redistricting plan, and the democrats couldn’t come close to stopping it with votes, so what did they do? They ran away. LITERALLY. They LEFT THE STATE, fleeing to Oklahoma to prevent the legislature, which requires 100 of the 150 representatives be present, from doing any business.

How about 2011 in Wisconsin? The Republicans had a sure victory on a budget measure, so rather than just stay and vote their conscience, what did the democrats do? Again, they ran away like the cowards they are. Just like in Texas, they ran and hid like little children to prevent the legislature from doing what it was elected to do.

At about the same time, democrats in Indiana fled the state rather than cast their votes on anti-union legislation. Again, like cowardly children.

Since November 2016, you are seeing this behavior by democrats increasing, getting worse, and more irrational. The non-collusion collusion scandal that even democrats are beginning to admit is a joke, shutting down the government to benefit ILLEGAL aliens while throwing American CITIZENS whom they are sworn to serve under the bus, and the irrational, screeching response to another tragic school shooting. Not only is their demand for more gun control irrational, they lie about what their true intentions are. Democrats said repeatedly that they had no intention of banning our guns, right up until they introduced a bill to ban basically all semi-automatic rifles and pistols. Make no mistake, they care nothing about the children in the Broward County, FL high school, or any other school for that matter. EVERY time one of these tragedies happens, the bodies are still warm as the democrats begin using the tragedy to advance their POLITICAL agenda. Never let a good crisis go to waste, right? They want full on gun confiscation but know they can’t get it in one fell swoop. They won’t stop incrementally working towards that goal, because until the populace no longer has the means to resist, they can’t cement the power they are so desperate to achieve. How desperate? Just look at their track record of outlandish, childish, illegal behavior, and ask that question again.



WATCH: Speech on Guns by Virginia Senate Candidate Causes Democrat Walk-Out, Goes Massively Viral Online

A Speech by Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas, the liberty-minded conservative who is challenging Senator Tim Kaine, discussing the importance of the Second Amendment has been viewed over five million times in the past 24 hours.
Friday’s speech by Freitas before the Virginia House of Delegates lead to many Democrats actually walking out and demanding a recess so that they could calm down because they were so outraged.

The Washington Post reports that after Democrats settled down, Del. Joseph Lindsey (D-Norfolk) told the House that “today, I have been offended as I can never recall since being a part of this body. And I have seen many of my colleagues emotionally shaken and bothered by either a lack of concern for facts or just simply playing to the cameras, I don’t know which.”

In the speech, Freitas discussed societal issues that may have lead to an uptick in mass shootings.

“So, over the last several days, Mr. Speaker, there’s been a lot of discussion about an open and honest debate with respect to school shootings, gun violence, gun control, etc…and an open and honest debate as I understand it, is one that would rely on data, facts, evidence, analysis, reason, logic, etcetera, etcetera… and I’m certainly willing to have that deate,” Freitas began. “I think if we were going to look seriously at school shootings and gun control, we would analyze things like: Why do all mass shootings seem to take place in gun free zones? Wouldn’t it be reasonable to test whether or not the efficacy of gun-free zones have actually achieved what they’re intended intent is?”

Freitas brought up the fact that most mass shooters come from broken homes — and pointed out some of the government policies that have encouraged the breakdown of traditional families.

“We would start to look at…most of the shooters come from broken homes. What sort of government policies have actually encouraged broken homes? You can look at Left-leaning think tanks like the Brookings Institute, that will actually say that some of it can be attributed to various cultural change that happened in the 60’s to include the abortion industry,” Freitas said. “You can look at a more conservative-leaning organizations that will say that the welfare state contributes significantly to dismantling the family as families became more and more dependent upon the government than they were mothers and fathers in the home raising children.”

The senate candidate also discussed how areas like Chicago, New York and Washington, DC have strict gun laws, and yet, the gun violence hasn’t stopped.

Freitas also laid into the Democrats for claiming they only want to get rid of bump stocks and impose background checks.

“If you’re wanting the other reason why we can’t have an honest debate about this one is because, quite frankly, I don’t think any of us, on this side of the aisle, believe you when you say that’s all you want to do. It will be bump stocks, it will be background checks, it will be a different kind of background checks that register the guns… Then, after that, it will be ‘We need to ban assault weapons.’ ‘What’s an assault weapon?’ ‘Something that looks scary,’” Freitas asserted. “Then after that it will be semi-automatic rifles, then it will be semi-automatic hand guns. Then it will be revolvers, shotguns… because when the policies fail to produce the results you were promising your constituents, you will be back with more reasons for why we’ve got to infringe on Second Amendment rights.”

Freitas point was that the Democrats refuse to consider other options to end societal violence that do not consist of “tearing apart or gutting the Second Amendment.”

Freitas served with the 82nd Airborne Division and 25th Light Infantry Division as an Infantryman. Following the terror attack on September 11 2001, Nick volunteered for US Army Special Forces (Green Berets) and eventually served 2 tours in Iraq as a Special Forces Weapons Sergeant and Special Forces Intelligence Sergeant.

After being honorably discharged in 2009, Freitas became the Director of Operations for a disabled veteran owned company that provides direct support to our service men and women conducting counter insurgency and counter IED operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“I’ve proven both on the battlefield overseas and on the battlefield of ideas, I am willing to stand by what I believe in and fight for it,” Freitas previously told the Gateway Pundit.

More information about Freitas’ campaign can be found on his website, Facebook and Twitter. He is constantly updating his social media with videos and information about where he stands on specific issues.

Democrats Hate America

Yes, the title says it all. How can a reasonable person draw a different conclusion based on the facts?

The simple truth is that democrats are willing to make AMERICANS suffer to benefit ILLEGAL ALIENS. They are putting the interests of criminals and other nations ahead of and above those of the AMERICAN CITIZENS whom they are supposed to serve. In the house version of a continuing resolution to fund the government, the democrats were given all of the stuff they typically support, but they STILL insist on shutting down government, and penalizing our military and veterans, children, and the elderly.

REMEMBER THIS: Congress STILL GETS PAID.
