Since Khan took office, crime has increased by 12%. In the months of February and March, for the first time in modern history, London surpassed the homicide rate of New York City. This was mostly contributed to a spike in knife attacks. Moreover, the city has seen “epidemic” levels of acid attacks, which are common in Muslim majority countries.
It recently dawned on me what should be the most obvious argument for the individual right to “keep and bear arms.”
The primary purpose of the 10 Amendments that form the Bill of Rights is to protect the natural rights of the individual from an encroaching federal government function. The only way someone would not know this is if they have not read them.
In fact, each of the Bill of Right’s 10 Amendments – there were originally 17 – states this by use of the words person, people, owner, or accused. The only two that do not expressly state the individual are the Seventh and Eighth. They do, however, use inference to make the point that both pertain to the individual.
Well, let’s hope so!
Stop Trying To Make Beto Happen; Ted Cruz Will Trounce Him And Here’s Why
Beto O’Rourke is different than most politicians in Washington DC. It may sound mean, but most of the elected people walking the halls of the U.S. Capitol look as though they fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down — with very few exceptions. O’Rourke, a 45-year-old representative from El Paso Texas, has boyish good looks that seem out of place in Washington. He’s the kind of politician that would look comfortable on the cover of Time as well as Vanity Fair.

Let’s talk caravans, shall we? No – not Dodge caravans. Illegal immigrant caravans. Although I guess they are only migrant caravans, until they cross our border.
I’m talking about the now world famous caravan of 1000 or 1200 or whatever, that crosses Mexico to attempt to get to America.
Oh great – another right wing whacko gonna dump on the poor undocumented immigrants.
Well – no – no I am not.
Now I didn’t realize, but evidently, these caravans have been going on since 2010, yet I haven’t heard of them until this last adventure. And I don’t recall any national and international reports until now.
And I certainly don’t remember a single instance where a reporter has been embedded with the marchers. Wonder why they chose to do it this time?
A guy was driving when a policeman pulled him over. He rolled down his window and said to the officer, “Is there a problem, Officer?”
“No problem at all. I just observed your safe driving and am pleased to award you a $5,000 Safe Driver Award. Congratulations.

Sadiq Khan’s London: Six Stabbings In 90 Minutes
What could be more fun than roaring around tarmac driving a go-kart? Going off-road of course. And that’s what’s being offered by Marcel Beltran and his French Kart – an all-electric, all-terrain thrill machine that’s been in development since 2012. After a dozen or so prototypes, the quiet off-roader has hit Kickstarter to raise production funds.

Our border is a better place for our military than the Middle East
The purpose of the military begins with homeland security.
Trump Dismantles Another Obama ‘Achievement’ — Just One More To Go
This week, the Trump administration announced that it would revise President Obama’s draconian auto fuel economy mandates. That alone is big news. But it marks the near total reversal of Obama’s anti-growth domestic policies. That’s bigger news.
As we have repeatedly explained in this space, Obama’s fuel economy mandate was little more than a thinly disguised electric car mandate, since hitting that level would have required a substantial increase in plug-in sales. As it stands, there are only a handful of powered cars that can go more than 54 miles on a gallon of gas.
Pruitt said that, instead of trying to force consumers into more expensive cars that environmentalists like, the focus at the EPA will be “on making cars that people actually buy and that are efficient.”
