Free crack pipes distributed by the government

Free BeaconCrack pipes are distributed in safe-smoking kits up and down the East Coast, raising questions about the Biden administration's assertion that its multimillion-dollar harm reduction grant program wouldn't funnel taxpayer dollars to drug paraphernalia.

The findings are the result of Washington Free Beacon visits to five harm-reduction organizations and calls to over two dozen more. In fact, every organization we visited—facilities in Boston, New York City, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Richmond, Va.—included crack pipes in the kits.

The kits became the subject of national attention in the wake of a Free Beacon report in February indicating that a $30 million harm-reduction program was set to fund the distribution of free crack pipes in "safe-smoking kits." Pressed on the matter in a Feb. 9 press briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki issued a full-throated denial.

And Psaki lied about, because of course she did.

Molotov cocktail BLM lawyers getting sweet treatment from prosecutors

Legal InsurrectionThe two lawyers accused of throwing a Molotov Cocktail at a police car during the George Floyd riots, pleaded guilty last October and faced up to ten years in prison.

Now federal prosecutors in New York are seeking a reduced sentence for the pair for some reason.

Leftist prosecutors go easy on their shock troops.

Trudeau proposes legislation to ban guns

Just The NewsPrime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday unveiled legislation that would force Canadians to turn over their "military-style assault weapons" in a government buyback program and l create a "national freeze" on handguns.

The government will also require long-gun magazines to be permanently altered so they can never hold more than five rounds, and will ban the sale and transfer of large capacity magazines," Reuters reported.

"The day this legislation goes into effect it will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer or import handguns in Canada," Trudeau told reporters.

I don't believe there have been any handgun incidents in Canada recently. Or any incidents at all for that matter. Trudeau is clearly taking advantage of the media coverage of the mass shootings in America to ban handguns in Canada.

Funny how he had legislation all written and ready to do that.

Dave Kopel's speech at the NRA

Dave KopelThis morning I spoke at the NRA Foundation's annual National Firearms Law Seminar, a continuing legal education program. Below are my introductory remarks. In a future column, I will describe how mass murders at schools could be halted immediately, through multistate programs like FASTER—Faculty/Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response. On Tuesday, the executive director of FASTER Colorado explained the program on the Jesse Watters show...

Read the whole thing.

The NRA is a troubled organization presently led by a corrupt cabal. But it once was a strong force for gun safety and the civil rights of gun owners. Perhaps one day it can be again, with appropriate leadership changes. Or, perhaps, it's time for the torch to pass to other organizations.

Either way, the heart of the NRA is its membership, and that heart is in the right place.

Another arson attack on a pro-life organization

ORTLSalem, OR—In the late evening on Sunday, May 8, the offices of Oregon Right to Life were attacked. An individual used incendiary devices, one of which exploded and caught the building on fire. The office was vacant at the time, and no one was harmed. Fire and police departments responded quickly, minimizing damage to the building. The agencies are actively investigating the incident.

Don't worry, I'm sure the prosecutors will reduce their sentences once the media attention turns to something else.

Nazis with nicer words

Gateway PunditAs of last year, the Canadian government is now offering to pay to euthanize people who are “too poor to continue living with dignity.” Anyone who feels as such – the tyrannical state would like to foot the bill for their suicide.

It's one thing to allow people to make their own decisions about when to end their lives. It's not ever appropriate for a government to try to encourage it. Government incentives are all lined up in favor of eliminating citizens who are old enough that their contributions to society are limited, without regard to basic human rights.

Vote NO on gun control

Gateway PunditSenate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., signaled Wednesday that the chamber will not quickly vote on a pair of House-passed background checks bills, giving Democrats and Republicans time to negotiate a possible but improbable bipartisan deal to address a spate of horrific mass shootings that have rocked the nation in recent weeks.

Now would be a good time to tell your Senators to vote no on gun control. Schumer has backed off an immediate vote, but with the NRA effectively sidelined, we need to remind the people who represent us that we don't need the NRA to have a powerful voice. McConnell is already planning to betray us, possibly with red flag laws that do not respect due process rights. The problem with most mass murderers is not that they were able to get guns too easily; it's that the warning signs they exhibited were never used to actually put them on the prohibited persons list (or better yet, lock them up). In the case of the Uvale killer, multiple threats to rape women and commit school shootings near them went without any action despite being reported.

We need to begin stiffening the spines of our Senators to resist this push for gun control right away.

Prosecutors investigating Trump for classified documents at Mar-a-Lago

Gateway PunditProsecutors launched a grand jury investigation into Trump’s handling of classified White House documents stored at the former president’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

The National Archives in February asked the Justice Department to investigate Trump’s handling of White House records after it raided Mar-a-Lago in January and took 15 boxes of documents.

The classified material found by the National Archives was stored in the SCIF and it is not unusual for a former president to be in possession of classified documents.

It's just the Deep State desperately trying to get something to stop Trump.

Appeals court reinstates Texas law protecting social media users

Gateway PunditA federal appeals court on Wednesday reinstated a Texas law that prohibits social media companies from banning users based on their political views. The law will take effect immediately following the ruling.

Governor Abbott signed the new law last September 9, prohibiting the social media giants from banning users based on their political views and requiring them to produce regular reports of removed content, create a complaint system, and disclose their content regulation procedures, according to Texas Tribune.

U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman blocked the law in December after NetChoice and CCIA filed a lawsuit claiming that the law violated their right to free speech under the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. According to Judge Pitman, social media platforms are protected by the First Amendment and have the right to moderate content.

On Wednesday, a three-judge panel of the New Orleans-based Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted a motion to stay to allow Texas to implement the law while the state’s appeal continues.

The Texas law is clearly in the spirit of the First Amendment. The details are more complicated. My take on it is more practical: if a company gets so big as to have effective monopoly status, it's services are treated like common carrier services. The phone company doesn't get to deny service because they don't like you. Neither should Twitter or Facebook.

Monkeypox appears to be the midterm variant

Just The NewsPresident Joe Biden on Sunday said that "everybody should be concerned about" monkeypox after the World Health Organization confirmed more than 80 cases worldwide.

The president said monkeypox "is something that everybody should be concerned about." The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced last week a U.S. resident tested positive after traveling to Canada. The agency is also monitoring several monkeypox clusters reported over the last few weeks in Europe and North America, where the virus is not typically reported.

"We’re working on it hard to figure out what we do and what vaccine, if any, may be available for it," Biden stressed.

Guess who was working on monkeypox?

Gateway PunditThe Wuhan Institute of Virology assembled a monkeypox virus genome, allowing the virus to be identified through PCR tests, using a method researchers flagged for potentially creating a “contagious pathogen,” The National Pulse can reveal.

The study was first published in February 2022, just months before the latest international outbreak of monkeypox cases which appear to have now reached the United States.

The paper, which was authored by nine Wuhan Institute of Virology researchers and published in the lab’s quarterly scientific journal Virologica Sinica, also follows the wide-scale use of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests to identify COVID-19-positive individuals.

Don't panic. They want you to panic.

Insurance agencies tracked a huge increase in mortality...

Behind The BlackWhile overall the risk of getting the COVID shots is quite small, the data is increasingly suggesting that these shots might have some very serious long term consequences. The graph to the right, taken from a January 2022 report [pdf] of the Society of Actuaries Research Institute and first spotted by Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, indicates a shocking and inexplicable increase in mortality among the nation’s young...

As this graph shows, the increase in AIDS deaths appears directly related to the arrival of the COVID shots in 2021. Subtract the red bar (COVID shots) from the yellow bar and the number of adverse reactions to vaccines ends up almost identical to the numbers in the previous fourteen years. Apparently, the experimental jab increased the amount of AIDS by over 950%.

In Q3 of 2021, the mortality rate for 25-64 year-olds basically doubled. That's a huge increase, and it's when vaccine distribution was being very heavily pushed on broad population groups. We still don't know why, but it's reasonable to suspect that the vaccine was one factor.

Paid menstrual leave

Area OchoSpain is proposing a law that would force employers to give women up to 5 days’ paid leave each month so they can stay home when having menstrual cramps.

If this comes to the US, I am going to declare myself to be a tranny so I can get a week of paid leave every month.

Seriously, though: why would any employer hire premenopausal women under such conditions?

This is the down side of "affirmative action" and mandatory benefits and all sorts of other crap. Why would employers hire workers who cost more unless those workers are more productive? If they aren't more productive -- and on average, for something like this, they won't be -- then won't they find ways to pay them less?

And if you come in with the law and say you have to hire them, and you have to pay them the same even when they produce less.. the only thing you're going to produce is resentment. And, probably, some new "trans" women who want the time off.

Vos pauses 2020 election audit

Just The NewsThe investigation into Wisconsin's last vote for president is on hold.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos on Wednesday said he is pausing the investigation led by former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman.

"We are pausing the investigation because it's not like we're going to keep looking into things we've already discovered," Vos told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Vos said he is placing the investigation on hold until a series of lawsuits are settled.

Vos's problem is that he was involved in creating and promoting the drop box system that was used to fraud the 2020 electon in Wisconsin, among other measures. Apparently Vos was surprised when Gableman conducted a honest investigation that uncovered problems, and now he's trying to rein that investigation in.

Real domestic terrorism

Gateway PunditA militant pro-abortion group has claimed credit for the Molotov cocktail arson attack at the office of a Wisconsin pro-life nonprofit organization.

The group, calling themselves “Jane’s Revenge,” promised to “adopt increasingly extreme tactics” against those who are pro-life.

Gateway PunditA bullet that pierced the sixth-floor window of the Virginia attorney general’s office in Richmond is being investigated by state Capitol Police.

Police were notified Monday evening about a bullet on the sixth floor of the Barbara Johns Building, where a small round hole was discovered at the top of a window, police spokesman Joe Macenka told the Washington Examiner.

This is real domestic terrorism. The FBI would rather investigate parents complaining about their local school board about teachers sexualizing their toddlers.

New Mexico audit finds election problems

Pinon PostOn Monday, the Otero County Commission held a special meeting on the 2020 election audit sanctioned by the County, which found some interesting results from the canvass. Included in those results was the revelation that of the 22% of the County canvassed, 41% of those had issues, including 30% who didn’t live at the address (while 40% of those voted in the election), 4% of doors knocked were “ghost votes,” and 2% of the votes were dropped...

There's a lot more than just the quote above, including Dominion voting machines that can print their own ballots. It's supposedly a testing procedure, but what's to stop the people with access to the machine from printing their own ballots and using them in the real election?

FBI targeting Project Veritas

Just The NewsThe federal government is weaponizing the law to target a media organization that's critical of the Biden administration, according to the lawyer for a journalist who's been the subject of a sweeping Justice Department investigation.

"The FBI is using the legal system to harass a media company and its journalists who are critical of the current administration and to collect 'evidence' of a non-crime in order to amass a secret file on American journalists," said attorney Paul Calli, who represents investigative journalist and Project Veritas Founder James O'Keefe. "J. Edgar Hoover would be proud."

There is no doubt in my mind that this is another political persecution. Veritas gets targeted because they are one of the very few organizations doing effective investigative reporting.

Frank Tait not elected to NRA board

NRA In DangerWe’ve been passed an email from Frank Tait, saying he has been notified that he was not elected to the NRA board, but will be running for the 76th director, who is elected by voting members who attend and vote at the annual meeting.

We just noticed that the ballot issue of the publications has the usual candidate bios — but nothing for Tait.

I was waiting and expecting to receive the voting issue of the NRA magazine, as I am a life member. I never received it. That's not the only "postal issue" that seems to have interfered with voting for the board this year.

FBI whistleblower says parents at school boards investigated as terrorists

Gateway PunditRepublican Congressmen Jim Jordan and Mike Johnson received documents from FBI whistleblowers that reveal the bureau targeted parents who protested CRT and Covid rules despite Attorney General Merrick Garland’s claims it never happened.

One mom was investigated because she belonged to a ‘right-wing group’ called “Moms for Liberty” and because she owned a gun. Another dad who opposed masks was investigated because he fit the bill of an “insurrectionist” because he “has a lot of guns.”

Last fall, the National School Board Association (NSBA) coordinated with the Biden White House weeks before AG Merrick Garland classified parents “domestic terrorists” in a letter to the FBI.

No one is going to call Merrick to account for lying to Congress. Or the people at the FBI for their years of political abuse.

Vaccine safety issues for pregnant women

Daily ExposeThe confidential Pfizer documents that the FDA have been forced to publish by court order reveal that 82% to 97% of women who were mistakenly exposed to the mRNA Covid-19 injection either suffered a miscarriage or suffered having to witness the death of their newborn child upon giving birth.

But Pfizer claimed – “There were no safety signals that emerged from the review of these cases of use in pregnancy”.

The thing about hiding and censoring information is that you are no longer trusted to interpret it once it gets out.

The only catch here is that of about 280 women who were vaccinated while pregnant, Pfizer stopped tracking results for 240 of them for unspecified reasons.If they all had normal outcomes, then the problem percentage is 15% not 80%-90%. But that's only if every one of those unreported outcomes were normal, healthy children.

Someone with access to health insurance data needs to start running some queries on this. If it validates with real world data...

Mass murder at Texas elementary school

Just The NewsEighteen children are dead, as well as three adults and a suspected gunman after a Texas elementary school shooting, the Texas Department of Public Safety confirmed to several outlets.

The suspect is 18-year-old Uvalde, Texas, resident Salvador Ramos, Abbott told reporters at a press conference.

Officials said Ramos, a Uvalde High School student, shot his grandmother before the alleged rampage.

The families of the dead, the wounded, and the traumatized have my utmost sympathy.

The Biden Admin is already calling for gun control.

Me, I'm curious about a number of things. Body armor is expensive. AR-pattern rifle(s) are expensive. Where did he get the money? Did he pass a background check to get them? (Did he pass it only because crimes he committed as a juvenile were expunged? Not sure how that works). He's in a border town; does he have cartel ties, ties to drug smugglers or human smugglers? Does he have some connection to the school he attacked or was it essentially (or apparently) random? UPDATE: Is there any significance to the Texas primary runoff today, or the primaries in other states?

PA elections show continuing corruption

Emerald RobinsonThe 2022 Pennsylvania Primary has exposed the utter delusion of Republicans who thought the stolen 2020 election could be safely ignored. Once Trump was off the ballot — they told us — all of these “election abnormalities” would disappear.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

She's not wrong.
