Constitutional Carry in Tennessee

Gateway PunditTennessee Governor Bill Lee (R) signed a constitutional carry bill, also known as the permitless carry bill, into law on Thursday.

The law goes into effect on July 1.

“I signed constitutional carry today because it shouldn’t be hard for law-abiding Tennesseans to exercise their #2A rights. Thank you members of the General Assembly and NRA for helping get this done,” Governor Lee said.

What's taking Texas so long?

Raffensperger accused of running a coverup

Just The NewsAn attempt by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to block physical inspection of ballots cast in Fulton County, Ga. in the November presidential election is part of an election fraud "coverup," voting integrity activist Garland Favorito charged Tuesday in an interview with Just the News.

Certainly Raffensperger's consistent opposition to audits raises the prospect of a coverup.

Biden Admin announces gun control agenda

Conservative Treehouse(1) The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.”
(2) The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act.
(3) The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states.
(4) The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions. Community violence interventions are proven strategies for reducing gun violence in urban communities through tools other than incarceration.
(5) The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking.
(6) The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

David Chipman was involved in Waco and Ruby Ridge, which should be disqualifying in and of itself. He also served as a lobbyist for gun control firms after leaving government, which should also be disqualifying for different reasons. Together, they send a rather threatening message.

The left brings the big legal guns to Maricopa

Gateway PunditThe corruption from the Obama years is not over. It’s just beginning. The so-called “Non-For-Profit” group, the Protect Democracy Project, is now involving itself in the Arizona Senate’s audit of Maricopa County. They are connected to Obama, Soros, China, and Biden’s DOJ, and are fighting to prevent an accurate count of the valid votes in the county.

Yesterday we reported that some legal firms joined the Not-For-Profit Protect Democracy Project in threatening the auditors selected in Arizona by the Senate to audit the 2020 Election results of Maricopa County.

Why are they so afraid of an accurate count?

Blackmail scheme confirmed

PJMediaRep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) has claimed that the sexual misconduct allegations made against him were part of an extortion scheme, and Bob Kent, one of the men allegedly involved in the scheme, all but confirmed in an interview on “The Michael Smerconish Program” on SiriusXM radio on Monday that he had asked Gaetz’s father for $25 million—but insists it was not extortion.

Kent says he needed the money to help find FBI agent Robert Levinson, who went missing in March 2007 and is presumed to be dead by his family, but Kent claims he’s seen video evidence that Levinson is alive in Iran.

This appears to confirm Gaetz's story. And really... that's a pathetic and transparent excuse. It shouldn't fool anyone.

Michigan SecState refuses to participate in hearing

Gateway PunditMichigan’s Secretary of State is refusing to attend and testify in front of a Michigan Senate hearing regarding the state’s election audit process.

What is she afraid of, exactly? What questions doesn't she want to answer?

Well, to start with, she ordered election clerks to ignore signature matching laws, and then ordered clerks to delete election data. But answering questions about that would be awkward, and expose the election fraud.

Maricopa County election audit spawns lawsuit

Gateway PunditThe circus never ends in Arizona as now law firms are threatening suits against the auditors selected by the Arizona Senate to audit the questionable results in Maricopa County from the 2020 Election.

There really must be some bad stuff lingering in the results of the 2020 Election in Maricopa County because the Democrats and the county’s Board of Supervisors are doing everything they can to prevent an adequate audit of the results in the county.

And it looks like the law firm handling the case is Perkins Coie, the same one that was involved in SpyGate and many other Democratic dirty tricks and cover ups.

If Perkins Coie is involved in trying to block this audit, that's practically an admission that foul play was involved with links back to high powered Democrats. Given that the county and state are predominantly Republican, there is likely bipartisan corruption too.

When you're taking fire, it means you're over the target.

Blatant media hit job on DeSantis

Daily WireCBS’s “60 Minutes” deceptively edited an exchange that reporter Sharyn Alfonsi had with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) two weeks ago about the way the Sunshine State has rolled out its vaccination program.CBS edited the interaction between DeSantis and Alfonsi when she showed up to a press conference a few weeks ago and repeatedly confronted the governor. The network cut out a lengthy portion of DeSantis’ response in which he explains what happened and how decisions were made.

They've been pulling this crap all along. They just can't process that they don't have the power to prevent the truth getting out anymore.

Clarence Thomas outlines the path back to free speech

Gateway Pundit“Today’s digital platforms provide avenues for historically unprecedented amounts of speech, including speech by government actors. Also unprecedented, however, is control of so much speech in the hands of a few private parties,” Thomas wrote. “We will soon have no choice but to address how our legal doctrines apply to highly concentrated, privately owned information infrastructure such as digital platforms.”

Justice Thomas noted that Trump had 89 million followers when he was banned in January, and said that the owners of the platforms have too much power.

“Although both companies are public, one person controls Facebook (Mark Zuckerberg), and just two control Google (Larry Page and Sergey Brin),” Thomas wrote.

Politico reports that “Thomas’ opinion amounts to an invitation to Congress to declare Twitter, Facebook and similar companies ‘common carriers,’ essentially requiring them to host all customers regardless of their views. At the moment, the companies have sweeping authority to take down any post and to suspend or terminate any account.”

Justice Thomas sees clearly.

How many other justices share that vision?

GA SecState doesn't want paper ballots audited

Gateway PunditGeorgia’s corrupt Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger sent a request to the courts yesterday requesting that ballot images taken from the voting machines in Georgia be the only source of evidence to be used in an upcoming audit in Fulton County Georgia. Raffensperger doesn’t want the paper ballots reviewed.

The motion cited claims that Georgia law doesn't allow for public release of actual paper ballots, only ballot images. He may be right on that point, if you consider an audit to be a public release. But auditing only images makes it difficult to note actual problems with actual physical ballots that may not show up on scanned images -- like a lack of fold marks.

This is one of those things that could be completely above board, but Raffensperger has already violated whatever trust he was due via his earlier efforts at obstruction.

I'm betting if we get to look at the paper ballots, we find something interesting. Remember, we already have several sworn affidavits indicating at least some batches of those ballots appeared suspicious.

Cornell, Rutgers implement mandatory COVID vaccination policies

Gateway PunditCornell University is now mandating Covid-19 vaccines for staff and students returning to Ithaca, Geneva and Tech campuses for the Fall semester.

This is a dangerous trend and more universities will follow suit.

Last week Rutgers University in New Jersey mandated Covid-19 vaccines for students and staffers and other colleges are expected to jump on the train.

Universities and similar institutions providing close-quarters living space do have an interest in ensuring the health of their student bodies through vaccinations, which they can make mandatory for attendance or employment should they so choose. However, the COVID vaccines are substantially different than the much safer vaccines against the many more dangerous diseases we suffered from in the past. Further, the intent by those in power is clearly to make use of the COVID vaccination as a tool of social control rather than as an individual choice. The danger is that a wide array of nominally private social institutions will take up the call to require COVID vaccinations for everything. And that slides rapidly into totalitarianism. Indeed, if you judge by the masking campaigns and lockdowns, we are already there.

We should reject demands for vaccination against a relatively low-risk disease because liberty must not become conditional on vaccination status.

Iowa goes 2nd Amendment Carry

Epoch TimesIowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed legislation into law on Friday lifting some restrictions to buy or carry a handgun in the state for law-abiding citizens.

The NRA-backed legislation named “House File 756” will take effect on July 1 and eliminates the requirement for law-abiding Iowans to obtain a permit to purchase a handgun from private non-licensed sources. Additionally, to carry a weapon, people will no longer need to have a permit as well.

Congratulations.

What's taking Texas so long to get on this bandwagon?

Democrats falsely slam Texas election-integrity law as racist

Gateway PunditThe GOP-controlled Texas Senate on Thursday passed an election integrity bill limiting mail-in and curbside voting.

The bill passed largely on party lines in an 18-13 vote. The measure, if passed by the legislature and signed by Governor Abbott, would limit voting hours, eliminate drive-through voting lanes and would prohibit “solicitation” by elected officials at ballot drop boxes.

As expected, the Democrats are furious and comparing the bill to “Jim Crow” laws.

"I'm sorry, sir, your race card has been declined. Would you like to try another form of argument?"

Vermont tying vaccination access to race

Liberty UnyieldingVermont is giving racial minorities and their families a preference in access to the COVID-19 vaccine. As the state’s governor explained on Twitter, “If you or anyone in your household identifies as Black, Indigenous, or a person of color (BIPOC), including anyone with Abenaki or other First Nations heritage, all household members who are 16 years or older can sign up to get a vaccine!”

This is unconstitutional. The Supreme Court has ruled that preferences for racial minorities are presumptively unconstitutional, and that even if minority groups have faced “societal discrimination,” that is not a reason to give them a preference. (See Richmond v. J.A. Croson Co. (1989)).

I don't want a vaccine myself, and I'm not in Vermont, but this is still unconstitutional.

NPR corrects story about Biden's laptop, admits laptop could be his

Just The NewsNational Public Radio has corrected a story about Hunter Biden that stated the U.S. intelligence community had discredited stories about a laptop he left at a repair shop and that perhaps had information about his overseas business dealings.

The correction was made on Thursday in a story about a recently published memoir by Biden, the son of President Biden, titled "Beautiful Things."

Now that the election is over, they are in a rush to admit all the things so that they will be old news by the time the next election rolls around. And also, the usual sequence: don't print the claims for as long as possible, then print the story that they have been discredited on the front page, then print the correction 6 months later buried in the middle of a book review no one will read.

Oh, and the book contract? It was a bribe. Obviously. Who on earth would buy a book from this guy?

Capital attacker was black, devout Muslim and Farrakhan follower

Gateway PunditOne Capitol Police officer died and another was injured after a suspect rammed a vehicle into a police barricade outside the Capitol building Friday afternoon and exited his vehicle with a knife.

The killer, later identified as Noah Green, was shot dead by police at the scene. Noah Green is a devout Muslim and follower of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

On Friday night Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told Wolf Blitzer on CNN that Friday’s attack on the Capitol was “one of the results” of the Jan. 6 riot.

As soon as I saw news of this attack I figured the Democrat-Media complex would be using it to try to scare up more paranoia about insurrectionists and Trump followers. And in fact McCabe is trying to do just that -- despite the race, religion, and likely political views of the attacker.

I expect we'll find out later on that the FBI was aware of the danger this man represented and failed to do anything about it. That seems to be the pattern.

Arizona legislature hires election auditors

Just The NewsArizona state Senate Republicans have hired a team of independent auditors to recount the 2020 election, including a hand recount of all ballots in Maricopa County.

The lawmakers announced their decision Wednesday.

The Senate hired truly independent auditors, prompting Maricopa County to hold an emergency meeting and refuse to allow the audit in situ. Sundance figures this is an action to create plausible deniability when the audit results are made public and, obviously, find fraud.

The only questions in my mind at this point is exactly how the fraud was conducted, and will the results enable audits of other questionable results elsewhere?

Biden releasing illegal aliens into the United States with official IDs

Gateway PunditThe Biden team is reportedly granting thousands of illegal border crossers one-year renewable permits to stay in the United States to apply for asylum, a process that can take multiple years.

According to a new CIS (Center For Immigration Studies) report, aliens will be allowed to receive Social Security cards, paving the way for potential government taxpayer benefits and jobs.

Immigration expert Todd Bensman revealed in a new report that an estimated 34,000 recent border-crossing aliens have already been distributed all around the continental United States.

Bensman stated that if the migrant qualifies to stay, and most do under Biden’s rules, they are tested for COVID and then given documents to stay. Afterward, they are guided to a privately run bus service that disseminates them across America.

Note that Biden is doing this without any legal authority to do so. No law changes, probably didn't even follow the Administrative Procedures Act (which already cost him a loss in a Texas lawsuit), just executive decrees.

Florida legislation to preserve the 2nd Amendment

Silicon GreybeardI learned today that this week a new bill has been submitted to the Criminal Justice & Public Safety Subcommittee in the Florida House of Representatives. HB1205 is a "2nd Amendment Preservation Act" much like the laws passed in other states. The full text of the bill (pdf) is online. The bill was introduced by Kaylee Tuck, a young representative from south central Florida; district 55 which covers parts of Okeechobee County just north of the Lake.

As position statements, these are great. As actual obstacles to federally imposed gun control they are unproven.

Rep Gaetz targeted by ex-DOJ official in extortion scheme?

Conservative TreehouseTwo people inside the DOJ leaked a story about Matt Gaetz (R-FL) being under DOJ/FBI investigation to the New York Times. The essential elements of the article are that Gaetz had a relationship with a 17-year-old woman, and paid for her to travel; ergo the DOJ/FBI is investigating “sex trafficking.” Presumably AG Bill Barr opened the investigation. However, Matt Gaetz vehemently denies everything about the claims, and instead says the FBI and DOJ were recently conducting a sting operation -with his cooperation- against a former DOJ lawyer named David McGee who was extorting Gaetz for $25 million.

According to Gaetz his father was contacted by McGee in March of this year and told he would release the details of a relationship with the woman if Gaetz did not pay $25 million. Gaetz contacted the FBI, and his father wore a wire in his conversation with McGee where the FBI were recording the extortion attempt. Now that someone has leaked the erroneous background of the investigation to the New York Times, Gaetz is demanding the DOJ release the tapes of the extortion attempt.

No idea what the truth is here, but Gaetz's side of the story deserves to be heard.

Boulder mass murderer passed background check shortly before shooting

The FederalistAccording to a police affidavit, six days before Alissa shot 10 people to death, he purchased a pistol. That would have required him to pass a federal background check also run by the FBI. It seems the FBI is not very good at this “stopping mass shooters” thing.

Remember this when the Democrats try to pass laws banning private gun sales. Their "background checks" don't work.

COVID vaccine may need yearly updates

Just The NewsScientists are warning this first group of COVID-19 vaccines could be ineffective in a year or less as new mutations and variations or the virus emerge.

The warning is take from survey by the People's Vaccine Alliance, a group of several organizations, including Amnesty International, in which two-thirds of the scientists acknowledged such a scenario. The other one-third said the timeframe to develop new vaccines to vend off the mutating virus is nine months or less.

I'd rather take my chances with natural immunity to the virus than a new, experimental vaccine every year. I don't bother with flu vaccines either.

Individuals with different risk profiles may make different decisions, and that's up to them.
