Is a Good Guy with a Gun Really a Good Guy?

A good guy (or girl) with a gun will stop a bad guy with a gun. It happens quite a lot, but isn’t often reported on.

However, many otherwise well meaning liberals simply don’t agree with this premise. Mostly because of the echo-chambers they live in. No one they know owns guns and they’ve been taught that, without exception, guns are bad, and only bad come from owning a gun.

But Will Witt was brave enough to venture out into the city of Pasadena, California to speak to liberals about the “good guy with a gun” statement.

It all begins rather predictably, as the interviewers all agree that guns have no place in society – that there are no good guys with guns.

But when presented with a scenario or two, most of the liberals, having never heard a reasoned argument from the right, began to rethink their positions.

Seeing them begin to question their own beliefs about guns is fascinating and shows that speaking with liberals one on one, without the “mob” distraction, can actually be quite constructive.

In the Midst of Our Viral Crisis – Another Caravan is on Its Way

It seems the organizers of Illegal Alien Caravan, Inc. are at it again. And they’ve taken a page from the democrat playbook.

Does, “Never let a Good Crisis Go to Waste” ring a bell? Well it should because the left uses it all the time.

From natural disasters, to government shutdowns, to the national debt, global warming, gun control or disease. Whatever the crisis-du jour happens to be, the left will somehow attempt to capitalize on it.

The latest crisis is of course Covid-19, the coronavirus. And being that the organizers of these caravans have all been Soros funded operatives, they are no strangers to the same crisis mantra.

So while we’re all wrapped up in prevention and control of this virus, concentrating on virtually nothing else, another Central American caravan of who knows who is on its way north.

It will be interesting to see what the left’s reaction will be, should the caravan make it through Mexico and arrive on our Southern border.

from Judicial Watch:

Another Illegal Immigrant Caravan Leaves Honduras for U.S.

While the world is absorbed in the Coronavirus drama, yet another caravan of illegal immigrants is heading north to the United States from Central America. read more

Owe Taxes? You Have an Extra 90 Days to Pay

There is no good news regarding the coronavirus outbreak. But as close as it gets to good news – if you owe the government money by way of a tax payment on April 15th, you have just been granted a reprieve of sorts.

You must still file by April 15th, but can defer any payment owed for up to 90 days. It’s no silver lining, but it’s as good as it gets these days.

from Business Insider:

The tax-filing deadline will remain April 15, but the IRS will waive penalties and interest on tax payments for 90 days

  • Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced on Tuesday that Americans who owe taxes can defer their payment for 90 days, interest and penalty free, up to $1 million.
  • Mnuchin said Americans should still file their taxes by the April 15 tax-filing deadline if they want to get a tax refund.
  • Americans who want to defer their tax payments will also need to file a return to qualify.
  • This post will be updated as more details about the tax relief guidelines are released.

Very few aspects of American life, if any, remain unaffected by the coronavirus. Taxes are no exception. read more

CNN Anchor Praises Trump?

Well here’s something I never thought I’d see or hear. A CNN anchor praised president Trump for handling of the coronavirus outbreak. And she did on air during a Tuesday CNN panel discussion.

This is a rare glimpse of fairness from a network that has been anything and everything but fair regarding Trump. Frankly it’s miraculous.

from Daily Wire: 

‘REMARKABLE’: CNN Anchor Praises Trump On Coronavirus: ‘Kind Of Leader That People Need’

CNN news anchor Jake Tapper (C), flanked by Univision's news anchor Ilia Calderón (R), watches as co-anchor Dana Bash adjusts her ear piece before the start of the 11th Democratic Party 2020 presidential debate with former Vice-President Joe Biden and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in a CNN Washington Bureau studio in Washington, DC on March 15, 2020.

On Tuesday, CNN anchor Dana Bash applauded President Donald Trump on his handling of the China-originated novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, praising Trump as the “kind of leader that people need” in this time of crisis. read more

The Republicans are Lucy and We are Charlie Brown

It appears that the Republicans are showing their soft underside again. And it is also evident that very few of them have learned a thing from the last 3-1/2 years of the Trump presidency – namely how to fight back and do it publically without concern of voter “backlash.” Which of course never comes, as we’ve learned from the president.

Christopher Bedford at the Federalist writes that, beyond a bi-partisan agreement to provide free coronavirus testing, “Washington politicians appear poised to fail the country once again, agreeing Friday evening to a one-sided and partisan coronavirus bill disguised as compromise. It’s not a shock to any conservatives in Washington and probably isn’t surprising to Republican voters either. They’re used to betrayal.”

Oh, the Republicans always start out gangbusters, as they did this past Friday, proposing aid packages for struggling small businesses in the form of no-interest loans and a rollback of the payroll tax. Predictably, the dems did what they do – introduced a package of giveaways to extend the welfare state.

But as predictably as the Sun rising, the dems got virtually everything on their wish list and Republicans got bupkis. read more

WND Exclusive – Would the ‘Squad’ use an Israel-developed coronavirus vaccine?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Will anti-Semites, like those in the “Squad,” reject a COVID-19 vaccine if it is developed by Israel?

Regarding the coronavirus, as things improve in China, things will likely worsen in America. However, they are not likely to get as bad as it is in others countries, like Italy.

But we have to be careful about comparisons. The effects of this virus are apparently amplified in the elderly and those with pre-existing health issues.

What isn’t widely publicized is that Italy’s median age is much higher than other European nations, thus it is being hit much harder than nations with younger overall populations.

That being said, the reason why things are improving in China while worsening in the U.S. and elsewhere is the timeline. read more

Video Podcast – The Pandemic of 2020 is a Good Crisis

by: Brent Smith

Deborah Frank Feinen, the mayor of Champaign, Illinois, issued a coronavirus-related emergency declaration Friday that will allow her office to ban the sale of guns, ammunition, and alcohol, take possession of private property and prohibit the entry and exit to and from the city.

The fear of the coronavirus is more of a pandemic than the virus itself and the democrats and the press are fueling that fear.

An irrational fear has gripped our nation like almost we’ve seen in the past. It’s much worse than the last pandemic that killed 10s of thousands. Yet strangely there was not the overhyped alarmism then that there is today.

I discuss the reason behind it. read more
