Gun rights protest in Raleigh

Only guns and moneyGiven Sen. Thom Tillis’ (R-NC) role in the GOP capitulation on gun control, Grass Roots North Carolina is holding a peaceful protest outside his Raleigh office on Friday, June 24th. They were able to get Stephen Willeford, the hero of the Sutherland Springs, Texas attack, to attend as the featured speaker. Mr. Willeford is now the National Spokesman for Gun Owners of America.

The event will be from 10am until 1pm outside the Terry Sanford Federal Building in Raleigh.

If you live in the Piedmont or can get to Raleigh on the 24th, please be there. Remember, it is politicians like Tillis who are the reason the GOP is known as “the stupid party”.

It's too late to stop the legislation. They moved fast on this one. Really fast.

Senate passes gun control bill

Just The NewsThe Senate on Thursday passed the first significant firearms legislation in decades in the wake of two mass shootings earlier this year.

The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act was passed by a 65-33 vote just hours after the U.S. Supreme Court issued an historic ruling that states and communities can't infringe the right of Americans to carry firearms in public.

All 50 Democrats supported the legislation, as well as Republican Sens. Roy Blunt, Richard Burr, Shelly Moore Capito, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, John Cornyn, Joni Ernst, Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, Lisa Murkowski, Rob Portman, Mitt Romney, Thom Tillis, Pat Toomey, and Todd Young.

Sens. Blunt, Burr, Toomey and Portman, are retiring at the end of this year, while only Indiana Sen. Young and Alaska Sen. Murkowski face reelection this November.

Gun owners have long memories. There will be a political cost, even if a delayed one. The leadership of the Republican party in the Senate has finally made its position clear to the voters.

Furthermore, the recent Supreme Court decision makes it clear that gun control laws are on very thin ground Constitutionally. The part of this law applying special rules to those under 21 seeking to buy guns will likely be struck down. So will any parts of the law that remove gun rights without due process, meaning the red flag components are at serious risk. Still, these corrections from the Supreme Court take time and are never certain.

No one wants the COVID vaccine

Daily Wire“It’s sad to say, I’m in the process of throwing 30 million doses into the garbage because nobody wants them,” Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said this week. “We have a big demand problem.”

“In all, we see vaccine hesitancy driven by misinformation and disinformation,” Ghebreyesus said. “The pandemic will not magically disappear. But we can end it. We have the knowledge. We have the tools. Science has given us the upper hand,” he said, calling on countries to work together to reach 70% of vaccination coverage.

Ghebreyesus also said the virus is staying ahead of vaccines. “This virus has surprised us at every turn – a storm that has torn through communities again and again, and we still can’t predict its path, or its intensity,” he said.

No one wants them because they don't work.

OR: More election problems

PJMediaOn May 3, Hall received the news that about two-thirds of the ballots for Clackamas County had been ruined because of a blurred bar code. It meant that the ballots couldn’t be put through the voting machine.

From then until May 17, the day of the primary, Hall did very little to address the problem. Offers of help from other county offices were unanswered. And when it all hit the fan on the 17th, Hall froze like a deer in headlights.

Two-thirds of the ballots!!

Biden pushing for state level gun control

The Truth About GunsThe Biden-Harris administration is telling sympathetic Democratic governors to pass more gun control legislation with the apparent belief that if more states pass restrictive anti-gun bills, it will be easier for the administration to push for similar legislation at the federal level.

The White House has already contacted governors in New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Rhode Island, Connecticut, California and Delaware. The bills they have come up with are similar in concept and some even use similar language. The legislation usually includes 21+ age restrictions for firearm purchasers, red flag bills as well as “assault weapon” and standard-capacity magazine bans.

Nowhere have gun owners been hit harder than in Biden’s home state of Delaware, where a bill that would prohibit magazines capable of holding more than 17 rounds and a bill that would outlaw most semi-auto rifles are awaiting Gov. John Carney’s signature, after flying through the Democrat-controlled General Assembly.

After Republicans in the Senate caved, they sense weakness and are pushing for everything they can get.

Supreme Court rules in favor of 2nd Amendment in New York case

DivemedicaSCOTUS releases decision in NY pistol case, ruling that New York’s means test is unconstitutional

We'll get a lot of detailed commentary as people read the case, but the bottom line is that ordinary people won. The Supreme Court declared that New York's rules about carrying firearms and specifically their rules about who qualified for a license to do so were unconstitutional. New York pistol permits have a lot of discretion involved, and it was -- until this ruling -- very difficult for an ordinary person to get one. Celebrities, police, armed security, politicians and their donors, sure. Ordinary people not so much.

Decision here.

"[We] will be a bit poorer" due to inflation, energy costs, says Dutch PM

CNBCDutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte on Wednesday said there is a “limit to what a government can do” to help people amid surging inflation.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Rutte told CNBC’s Steve Sedgewick that the Dutch government would help people on lower and lower-middle class incomes with their rising energy bills.

However, he added that “you cannot help everyone so ... we in the West will be a bit poorer because of the high inflation, the high energy costs.”

Inflation hit 9.6% in the Netherlands in April, according to the Dutch statistics body CBS. This was slightly lower than the 9.7% inflation recorded in March, though it remained historically high.

How do we get high inflation? Massive government spending funded by creating money out of thin air (Modern Monetary Theory) combined with shutting down production for two years and screwed up supply chain preventing goods from getting to the marketplace. Oh, and triple or quadruple energy costs.

How do you get high energy costs? Stop drilling for oil and provoke Russia into invading Ukraine, resulting in sanctions on Russian oil supplies, all in service of a great transition away from fossil fuels that is literally impossible to achieve, while increasing regulations on everything. Inflation is when more money chases fewer goods. The Biden Admin is doing everything it can to produce fewer goods and spend more money.

Coming up next? Shortages, followed shortly by "real Communism", by which I mean mass starvation.

Republicans blow the midterms by voting for gun control

Gateway PunditRepublican Senators John Cornyn of Texas, Thom Tillis and Richard Burr of North Carolina, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Rob Portman of Ohio, Mitt Romney of Utah and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Mitch McConnell of Kentucky are so far on board with the gun control legislation.

Just a few hours after the text of the legislation became available, mostly Democrats plus the ten Republicans above voted to advance the bill.

Passing this legislation, which now seems likely, would be a dramatic betrayal of the Republican base, no doubt motivated in part by the idea that the NRA's troubles have neutralized gun owners as a political force.

If any of the Senators on the list belong to you, or happen to be Democrat swing votes, you have at most a few days to write or call to tell them to block this bill.

Gateway PunditThe law would prohibit a misdemeanor domestic violence offender with a "current or recent former dating relationship with the victim" from purchasing or owning a firearm.

The definition of a "dating relationship" will be determined by the court, and offenders will automatically regain their ability to buy and own guns after five years if they do not commit any disqualifying offenses.

What this means in practice is that if you date someone once, they can bar you from owning or possessing guns for 5 years.

How red flag laws actually work. And, you know, they probably work to make squish RINO Republicans lose elections, too.

Oh, and anyone under 21 who tries to buy a gun gets a waiting period during which the FBI can search "confidential databases"... in other words, the NSA's ongoing 1st and 4th amendment violations will be weaponized to target young conservatives who want to own guns.

New ballot data in Fulton County GA

UncoverDCAll eyes are on Georgia today as voters head to the polls to vote in primaries across the state to select who will appear on the general election ballot in November. While today’s election focuses on the state’s future, Georgia remains embroiled in controversy and discrepancies surrounding the 2020 general election, which saw a scant 11,779 votes out of nearly 5 million separating Joe Biden and Donald Trump in the final tally for the 2020 presidential election. With an irregular recount and a “nothing to see here” audit affirming Joe Biden as the winner in 2020’s critical race, Fulton County remains a focal point in the crucial swing state’s ongoing election debacle. One area in need of attention is the county’s machine count.

Indeed, significant deficiencies persist in the recount of machine votes in Fulton County. With a detailed report in Gov. Brian Kemp’s possession for the past two weeks, the governor’s office has been verifying the data outlining the shocking findings presented by Kevin Moncla and Mr. Joseph Rossi. As his office continues to review the information, below is a summary of the Moncla and Rossi’s report sitting on Gov. Brian Kemp’s desk.

There are enough phantom ballots -- no ballot images and no tabulator logs, but nonetheless counted in both the official 2020 results and the machine recount -- at issue in this one report for one county to change the election results. And that, I believe, is exactly what happened.

The Boyfriend Loophole

Just The NewsClosing the "boyfriend loophole" would address the issue that while married partners who perpetrate domestic abuse are barred from purchasing guns unmarried partners are not.

Negotiators are reportedly struggling with how to identify "boyfriend" or partner in an unmarried relationship.

... otherwise known as not losing your civil rights because of a drunken one-night-stand with a crazy bitch.

The "domestic violence" rules are already abused enough without opening them up to anyone who has ever dated you or fantasized about dating you.

Remember, red flag laws are a violation of the right to due process and presume guilt before trial while punishing people who have not committed any crime.

Sen Paul asks: Why not just allow baby formula imports?

Based PoliticsMeanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, a libertarian-leaning Republican, recently introduced a bill that would actually help address this government-created crisis. It’s just, for some bizarre reason, technically illegal to import baby formula from most European countries. (Even the ones with stricter safety regulations than the US!) And in the select few countries where we are able to import formula, it’s still hit with a hefty 18% tax.

Paul is a remarkably practical man. Pity he is surrounded by insane politicians.

FBI leadership "fired up" to get Trump over Russiagate

Just The NewsIn explosive testimony Tuesday in the Michael Sussmann trial, an FBI agent said "fired up" senior FBI leadership insisted on continuing the investigation into now-debunked allegations of a secret Trump back channel to Moscow via a Russian bank despite learning the story was unsubstantiated.

FBI agent Curtis Heide was the co-case agent on the investigation into the allegation that there was a secret communications channel between the Trump Organization and Kremlin-linked Alfa Bank. He testified on Tuesday in the Sussmann trial that the bureau's top brass pushed for the investigation.

Heide was told in an instant message from FBI Agent Joe Pientka, who was the supervisor leading the Crossfire Hurricane investigation regarding Trump-Russia collusion allegations, that senior leadership was "fired up" about the Alfa Bank and Trump Organization email servers and not opening an investigation was not an option. He received this message two days after Sussmann met with then-FBI General Counsel James Baker to give him the underlying, allegedly pretextual data.

Specifically named as "fired up" was FBI Director James Comey. Yes, that weasel. FBI leadership apparently pushed the Alfa Bank hoax very, very hard even after being informed it didn't add up.

This trial specifically is about Sussmann, but I have to wonder if Durham is eyeing the information about FBI leadership's behavior here and contemplating whether he can get to them.

Justice demands accountability for those in government as well as those outside of it.

What did Tina's election adventure uncover?

Emerald RobinsonAs many of you already know, there was only one election official in the United States who captured the corruption of the stolen 2020 election and that’s the County Clerk for Mesa County, Colorado — Tina Peters. She is the only one who copied the hard drive from the Dominion voting machine in her county before and after Dominion’s “software updates.”

Tina Peters submitted copies of that hard drive to independent forensic experts for examination. Those two experts, Jeffrey O’Donnell and Dr. Walter C. Daugherity, have now made a statement called “Forensic Examination Proves Vote Manipulation and Illegal Destruction of Records on Dominion Voting Machines” and it’s a one-page summary that nobody in the federal government or the corporate media wants you to read.

Many prominent candidates disqualified over signatures

Just The NewsThe Michigan Bureau of Elections has ruled that five GOP candidates running to unseat Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer are not eligible for the state's August primary because of faulty signatures on their campaign petitions.

The agency says the petitions in question include signatures from people paid to sign their names and the names of the deceased – a finding at least on campaign disputes.

"We strongly believe they are refusing to count thousands of signatures from legitimate voters who signed the petitions and look forward to winning this fight before the board and, if necessary, in the courts," said John Yob, a consultant for the Johnson campaign.

Playing games with ballot access and petition signatures is very old tactic, but clearly still an effective one.

Court upholds right to inspect voting machines

Just The NewsThe Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania on Tuesday upheld the right of Pennsylvania counties to inspect electronic voting equipment, an authority granted to them by the state legislature.

The court sided with a brief filed by the Amistad Project on behalf of Fulton County, Pennsylvania, which conducted an inspection on two Dominion voting machines in an attempt to determine whether they had functioned correctly during the 2020 election.

The secretary of the Commonwealth then retroactively banned the practice – in addition to decertifying both of the machines. However, the secrertary failed to provide the county with state funding to replace the machines.

The ruling establishes as precedent that counties have the statutory authority to inspect electronic voting equipment to ensure safe and honest elections are taking place.

Upholding the right to do it is one thing; actually managing to do it before a mysterious update deletes the evidence is another. See also Fulton County, GA.

World Economic Forum wants to rule the world

Conservative TreehouseIt is important to remember the ultimate goal of the ‘climate change’ promotors (World Economic Forum) is not an energy system that changes the global climate. The goal of the ‘climate change’ group is to create a carbon trading system; a new financial mechanism (a global tax program) to control human activity on a world-wide basis. This system also needs a digital identity in order to work {hint-hint}.

You cannot tax, or trade, things you cannot track. As a result, there was always going to be a need for an individual tracking and monitoring system that would connect to the global digital identity and determine the carbon footprint. The carbon taxing and trading system will be more financially lucrative than any stock exchange or monetary banking system. It is the ultimate human control mechanism, and the preferred way to redistribute wealth under the guise of global equity.

Of course, the system will beta test as a consumer demand product until the government steps in to take over the allocation and distribution equity part. In this video segment, Alibaba Group president J. Michael Evans boasts at the 2022 World Economic Forum about the development of an “individual carbon footprint tracker” to monitor what you buy, what you eat, and where/how you travel.

This is no longer the fantasy of a Bond supervillian. It's real, and they are busily trying to implement it. Don't believe me? Go watch them say it on video.

Canada is now an authoritarian state

NYPostTwo decades ago, when I was 4 years old, my parents immigrated to Canada from India in search of greater freedoms, autonomy and economic opportunities. They’re core Canadian values — enshrined in our national anthem, which gloriously heralds “The True North strong and free.”

However, the past two years have seen a near complete erosion of the foundational liberal values that have attracted millions of immigrants like myself to this country.

Under the once-righteous guise of COVID safety and online protections, the Canadian government has taken its power to extreme levels once only imaginable — let alone permissible — in a dissent-stifling authoritarian state.

When even the immigrants notice, it's becoming very obvious.

Mass murders up 61% in 2021

Just The NewsThe FBI recorded 61 "active shooter" incidents last year, the highest tally in more than two-decades.

The agency announced the findings Monday.

The 2021 total, which included incidents occurring in more than 30 states, was 52% higher than the previous year's total, and close to a 100% increase from each of the three previous years.

Why does this happen under Democrats?

My guess is because Democrats find these incidents politically useful.

VoterGA: 2020 ballot images deleted, missing

VoterGA VoterGA announced today their dropbox video survey team determined that 102 Georgia counties were unable to produce dropbox surveillance videos from the November 2020 election. The team obtained admissions from 72 counties that all of the videos intended to monitor drop boxes for ballot trafficking were destroyed. VoterGA volunteers made the determinations by submitting Open Records Requests (ORR) for the videos from each county. Thus, video monitoring is missing for 181,507 cast ballots.

At a November 9, 2021 press conference, VoterGA announced that their ballot image analysis team determined at least 70 Georgia counties were unable to produce all the original ballot images from the November 2020 election. Digital ballot images are created automatically by the Dominion voting system for results tabulation. The team obtained admissions from 56 counties that most or all of their ballot images were unavailable. A total of 1.7 million images were destroyed.

According to state and federal law, all elections records must be retained. In fact, federal law requires a 22- month retention period for election records while state law requires a 24-month retention period for election documents that are formerly considered to include videos or electronic digital files. [USC 52 20701, O.C.G.A. 21-2-73].

Federal law provides for a two-year retention period on election information. Whoever deleted it committed crimes.
