And a Child Shall Lead Them; Listening to the Students who say they are too Immature to be listened to

Timothy Birdnow

This article at Canada Free Press hits the nail on the head.

From the article by A. Dru Kristenev"

"Nothing is more glaring than the demand by youth at these rallies, meetings and so-called town halls to impose age limits (21 years old) on the purchase of firearms. This is not to say that background checks or refusal to sell guns to teenagers should be disavowed. What is so foolish in giving children the microphone to erupt with unrestrained emotion, placing blame on inanimate objects rather than social engineering (of which they’ve no clue they are guinea pigs) is that many are unable to see or speak beyond blind hatred; hatred of people and things that they’ve been taught is how one shows love for the less fortunate. Completely upside-down thinking.

Not experienced and mature enough to own and operate a gun, yet they expect others to accept their opinion despite their self-declared immaturity

Inconsistently, students who call for age restrictions to keep someone of their own years from purchasing a gun, expect seasoned members of society to consider them expert witnesses on the issue. The contradiction comes in as they explain that they are not experienced and mature enough to own and operate a gun, yet they expect others to accept their opinion despite their self-declared immaturity. If you say you’re too young to handle a gun, what makes you think you’re not too young to have a rational opinion that older and wiser folks should take seriously?"

End excerpt.

Nobody is making this point, which is excellent and should be obvious when one thinks about it. These children, given absolute moral authority by the media, are to be listened to when they say they aren't mature enough to be listened to.

We should take them at their word and apply their demands first to them. In a sane world where the media actually sought to find logic this is precisely what would happen. But not now; these kids are pawns and aren't wise enough to know it.

A Leopard Changing her Spots

Brian takes on Claire McCaskill yet again:

Dear Senator McCaskill,
Since you spend a lot of time these days lauding Republican lawmakers, why don't you switch party affiliations? It is clear that you fear for re-election in a conservative state, and you are trying to re-establish your credentials as a common sense, conservative heartland woman, even if your voting record is much closer to Elizabeth Warren than to Ted Cruz. By the way, do you still oppose the tax cut, in light of the economic boomlet of the last few months?

Best regards,
Brian E. Birdnow

Confederate Paranoia

Jack Kemp

Even Sven and Ole could figure this one out...you betcha...

]Confederate flag’ spotted in Seattle neighborhood. Newspaper contacted. Inquiry launched. Oops.

After a tip from a New York Times beststelling author that there was a Confederate Battle Flag (which the author and the Seattle people apparently did not know is distinct from the Confederate flag) a newspaper reporter was sent to investigate this horrible crime.

From the article:

"The paper said it drove to that corner in Seattle and found a flagpole with an American flag at the top and another flag below it — a red flag with blue stripes.
The Times said there was no wind, so the flag in question was hanging down and not spread out and "you could make some assumptions that it was the star-filled ‘Southern cross’ of the Confederacy.”
What was the final verdict?
Then Darold Norman Stangeland, who lives at the corner house, solved the burgeoning controversy, the paper said.
"That’s a Norwegian flag,” he told the Times. "It’s been up there since the start of the Olympics.”

End excerpt.

Coward County: Three More Chicken Cops at School Shooting

Timothy Birdnow

Looks like there were three other Broward County deputies who failed to enter Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while Nikolas Cruz was murdering teenagers by the gross.

From Breitbart:

"...Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, "arrive at the west side of Building 12” and "take a position” outside the school — but never go inside. The sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place.

Now CNN reports that the Coral Springs police officers claim three other Broward County deputies were outside the school but failed to go inside as well. They quote "Coral Springs sources” who said the three "deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles” when Coral Springs officers arrived. They said "not one of [the deputies] had gone into the school.”"

end excerpt.

What value is there in having police if they don't take action? The Left wants us to disarm ourselves and rely on civil authorities to protect us, yet frequently they fail when push comes to shove. One armed teacher could have ended the massacre at any time if he or she had the courage to act - and the weapon to act with.

They should change the name of Broward county. Might I suggest Coward County?

The Israeli School Model

Dana Mathewson

From "Friend Eddie." Nothing awfully new here except that Israel's methods are explained more fully. Question: does Steve Cortes still work at CNN? Seems to me that he goes "off the reservation" here by agreeing that armed guards are the answer.


Yes, I remember walking by an elementary school in Tel Aviv and watching the kids play outside with an armed guard with an Uzi machine gun in his hands, supported by a shoulder strap.

And from Tim:

Oh, Jack, I'm sure those Israeli kids were scarred for life from that horrible thing they had to witness! (/snark). There was a time when police walked a beat in the cities, too, and nobody felt traumatized about a uniform wearing armed guard keeping watch. In fact, children were told to go to a policeman if they were lost or in trouble. Gee, if we only knew then what we know now we could have saved people in this country so much emotional damage! (I guess the snark wasn't really turned off after all.)

As a caller pointed out on Rush Limbaugh the other day, nobody thinks twice about armed guards at banks or in malls, but there are many who refuse to guard their most precious possessions, their children. Strange how the liberal mind works.

Missouri Governor Indicted

Timothy Birdnow

Missour Governor Eric Greitens has been indicted on a felony charge of invasion of privacy by a St. Louis City Grand Jury.

The former Democrat Greitens (who changed his party affiliation when he decided to run for Governor of Missouri) had been having an affair with a woman and decided to "take out insurance" by taking unauthorized photographs of the woman in sexual bondage. The Governor denies the accusations, although does admit to the affair. He is not being charged with blackmail but with invasion of privacy.

Take the charges with a grain of salt. St. Louis  is a Democratic stronghold and it would not be difficult to find a grand jury willing to issue such charges. Remember, he has only been charged, which means the grand jury said there was enough evidence to bring charges, not to convict Greitens.

Democrats in the Missouri legislature are demanding impeachment. It will be an uphill battle if the GOP decides to circle the wagons, as they hold a supermajority in both houses of Congress.

Removing Greitens would actually be a bad thing for Democrats in some ways, as the Lieutenant Governor would take over as Governor, and he is much more conservative than the former Democrat Greitens. Missouri law provides for the Lieutenant Governor to assume the post until the next general election. It is unlikely the Democrats could mount a serious challenge by 2918, a midterm. But the Donkeys hope to create a sense of scandal around the GOP, suggest they are corrupt and more Democrats are needed. Never was irony more lost on anyone. This shows the desperation of the Democrats in that their only option is to smear the opposition; they can't win the argument and can't compete at the ballot box without some dirt.

The DNC Hack that Wasn't

Timothy Birdnow

The DNC hack was nonesuch, but rather an inside job and Robert Mueller knows it.

The article states:

"Kim Dotcom has said, "Let me assure you, the DNC hack wasn’t even a hack. It was an insider with a memory stick. I know this because I know who did it and why. Special Counsel Mueller is not interested in my evidence. My lawyers wrote to him twice. He never replied.”

Dotcom’s assertion is backed up by an analysis done last year by a researcher who goes by the name Forensicator, who determined that the DNC files were copied at 22.6 MB/s- a speed virtually impossible to achieve from halfway around the world, much less over a local network - yet a speed typical of file transfers to a memory stick.

The local transfer theory of course blows the Russian hacking narrative out of the water, lending credibility to the theory that the DNC "hack” was in fact an inside job, potentially implicating late DNC IT staffer, Seth Rich."

End excerpt.

Remember, too, the Democrats used a private company to investigate the "hack" rather than the F.B.I. That company - Crowdstrike - is run by an expatriated Russian and has rewritten and altered important parts of its report on the issue. Crpwdstrike has ties to Ukrainian interests, Google, and the Hillary camp.

There is the real scandal that the sham investigation of Robert Mueller should be looking into

Dick Durban Ex-Communicated

Timothy Birdnow

Well, a Catholic Bishop has finally done his job and denied Holy Communion to a radical pro-abortion Catholic Democrat.

Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois has denied Senator Richard "Dick" Durbin (the Turban, the Sheik of the Burning Bland) the sacrament of Holy Communion because of his radical pro-abortion stand. According to the article in Life News:

"In a statement on the Diocese of Springfield website, Bishop Paprocki said, "Fourteen Catholic senators voted against the bill that would have prohibited abortions starting at 20 weeks after fertilization, including Sen. Richard Durbin, whose residence is in the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois.”

The full statement reads:

I agree completely with His Eminence, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Pro-Life Activities, who called the U.S. Senate’s failure to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act "appalling.”

Fourteen Catholic senators voted against the bill that would have prohibited abortions starting at 20 weeks after fertilization, including Sen. Richard Durbin, whose residence is in the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois. In April 2004, Sen. Durbin’s pastor, then Msgr. Kevin Vann (now Bishop Kevin Vann of Orange, CA), said that he would be reticent to give Sen. Durbin Holy Communion because his pro-abortion position put him outside of communion or unity with the Church’s teachings on life. My predecessor, now Archbishop George Lucas of Omaha, said that he would support that decision. I have continued that position."

End excerpt.

It's well past time the Catholic Bishops enforced Church doctrine. Many members of Congress vote in direct opposition to the teachings of the Church which they claim to be members of and which helps them be re-elected in no small measure. Ex-Communication is actually automatic in instances of grave sin - and voting to murder children is a grave sin - but the Church rarely issues a formal Ban of Ex-Communication, out of fear of being accused of entering pollitics and perhaps having their tax-exempt status revoked. But there is a higher authority the Bishops should be answsering to and their refusal to do what is right imperils the soul of the offender, the souls of bistanders who think there is no penalty for disobeying God's Will, and ultimately for the Shepherds themselves.

It is good to finally find a Bishop willing to take a stand. Better late than never.

Are Democrat Midterm Ambitions the Real Reason Parkland is Still in News?

Selwyn Duke

Unlike after other mass school shootings, the movement from Parkland to propaganda has had tremendous lasting power. The tragedy’s wake has seen sustained news coverage and energized anti-Second Amendment protests, ostensibly due to organic "student activism.” Yet post-shooting leftist anti-gun appeals and young students willing to facilitate them are nothing new. What is new is that the Democrats just recently suffered a devastating political one-two punch.

Not long ago Democrats were licking their chops at the prospect of a November midterm sweep. Since then, however, two momentous things have occurred: Both the Trump-Russia-collusion narrative and the Democrats’ generic congressional poll numbers have collapsed. To right this listing ship, leftists need a new issue, and fast, and they may think they’ve got it: gun control.

CNN Scripted Questions for Florida Townhall

Dana Mathewson

This was on the Fox News site this morning, AND our Yahoo Home Page. CNN denies it, of course.

From the article:

Colton Haab, 17, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and an ROTC member, reportedly used Kevlar vests to shield students during the massacre. He said he decided not to attend the town hall after CNN presented him with the prepared question.

"CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted," Haab told Miami's WPLG-TV. "I don't think that it's going get anything accomplished. It's not gonna ask the true questions that all the parents and teachers and students have

Many Mass Murderers are DeMocrats

Jack Kemp forwards this:

GOP congresswoman: Many mass murderers ‘end up being Democrats’

Here is the money quote:

ALBANY, N.Y. — A Republican congresswoman from upstate New York said Wednesday that "many” people who commit mass murder turn out to be Democrats.
U.S. Rep. Claudia Tenney made the remarks on Talk 1300 Radio during a discussion about calls for stricter gun control since last week’s deadly Florida high school shooting.
"Yeah, well, obviously there is a lot of politics in it, and it’s interesting that so many of these people that commit the mass murders end up being Democrats, but the media doesn’t talk about that either,” Tenney told talk show host Fred Dicker. more...

Justice Clarence Thomas speaks up about the Second Amendment

Dana Mathewson

I dearly wish this man had been tabbed as Chief Justice, instead of the squish holding the job right now. A demerit for G.W. Bush, certainly.

And this makes me wish that Justice Thomas would sound off more often!


A note from Tim:

You know, the Founding Fathers gave it it's own amendment, rather than just rolling it into the First. Why? It shows they thought it important enough to separate from the others, to single it out. Yet the courts act as though it was some sort of linguistic mistake, something that got in by accident.

How to Cut Mass Shootings in Half

Dana Mathewson

I think she has a few "gotchas" in here, but this one's pretty much up to her usual standard.

Ann's working on the problem

Ann states:

There have been about 34 mass shootings since 2000. Forty-seven percent — 16 — were committed by first- and second-generation immigrants, i.e. people who never would have been here but for Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act.

And the immigrant mass shootings have been some of the most spectacular ones, such as Fort Hood and San Bernardino. Two of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history, at Virginia Tech in 2007 and at the Pulse Nightclub in 2016, were committed by first- and second-generation immigrants, i.e., people who were in this country because Teddy was pouting in his room and refused to come out until he got his own legacy"
