A Walkout Based on Lies

Guest Post by: John Velisek USN (Ret.)

Thursday was a student walkout of over 3000 schools throughout the country as a way to show deference to the students murdered by a crazed gunman is Parkland Florida. This is a major story as it should be, but the reasons for the walkout mutated to nothing more than another reason to bash the NRA and innocent gun owners throughout the country.

The main premise, which was covered almost 24/7 by most of the progressive mainstream media, focused on the major issues that those in charge see them since the shooting. Guns are bad, assault weapons which are fluid in their definition at best, are worse, and the NRA are boogeymen who must be eradicated in any way possible.

Let’s talk of those really in charge of this whole show of concern and outrage. The Women’s March, Media Matters and ultimately George Soros have combined to organize all this. The teachers union comprised of forced dues-paying members and progressives who use the opportunity to instruct these children in the Marxist traditions that education uses as a base today.

The political indoctrination and propaganda that is being forced on these children today is the same as it has been for the college students that we all have seen in the streets burning and looting because they care more than you do, are more educated than you are, and are in every way, morally superior to those outside of the bubble they have placed themselves inside.

Being a social justice warrior sounds like a high level, morally superior person – someone who can walk on water and dispense truth like Tide Pods to any who will listen – almost a God-like creature who leads the ignorant masses to


the light. These protests are built on the premise “that a child should lead them” – faintly historical, faintly biblical but of a pattern unseen in the roots of religion. read more

Media Ignores McCabe’s Misdeeds

from Media Research Center:

On Wednesday, word leaked out that the FBI’s Inspector General’s office was recommending former deputy director, Andrew McCabe be fired for misleading their investigators who were looking into the handling of the Clinton e-mail investigation. The report hasn’t been made public yet but it comes as the Trump administration was experiencing numerous firings. While ABC, CBS, and NBC had previously hyped such firings, NBC ignored this one as ABC spent more time worried about McCabe’s pension. read more

CNN’s Chris Cillizza is not a Smart Man

from HotAir:

CNN’s Chris Cillizza On Deputy Scot Peterson: He Proved The NRA Wrong

CNN’s Chris Cillizza had a really awful hot take on the news that Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson stood outside doing nothing while Nikolas Cruz was inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school shooting people. Cillizza’s take is that this proves, once and for all, that a ‘good guy with a gun’ doesn’t always stop a bad guy with a gun.


“To stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun,” LaPierre said to applause from the CPAC crowd on Thursday morning. read more

To the Left, All Guns are Automatic

from NewsBusters:

Katy Tur Still Doesn’t Know What ‘Semiautomatic’ Means

Every time the term ‘semiautomatic weapon’ hits the mainstream, it’s almost certain that at least one pundit will put their foot in their mouth wile talking about firearms. Thanks to Katy Tur, that trend has continued.

On Thursday, the MSNBC host went on a furious rant about the availability of semiautomatic weapons, presumably arguing in favor of further restrictions on that class of firearm. However, it soon became clear that she was doing what so many others in the media have before her: confusing single-action semiautomatic fire with full auto. Let Ms. Tur serve as a reminder that fake news does not have to be deliberate in order to fit the bill. read more

Video Podcast – How is Trump’s Economy Doing?

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Today I discuss that the left has been attempting to downplay the startling Trump economic recover by saying that, “See, he didn’t the 3% growth target we were meant to expect.”

Yes, the economy that staggered along at 1.nothing percent to negative percent growth under 8 years of Obama has been eclipsed in short order by 2.3-2.6% growth, and this is somehow disappointing.

I discuss why the huge one day point drop in the Dow is not as big a deal as many would have us think.

And in my financial tip of the day, which is my only tip of the day, I discuss how Federal Reserve interest rate hikes will affect credit card debt and payments, and what to do about it read more

The Mueller Non-Firing Is a Distraction

from The Blaze:

Was the New York Times’ story about President Donald Trump’s desire to fire special counsel Robert Mueller used to distract the public from the doubt building around Mueller’s investigation?

A reporter for the Washington Free Beacon sure thinks so.

What happened?

More evidence was released this week that calls into question the objectivity of Mueller’s investigation. The questions stem from the anti-Trump bias of the investigation’s former top agent, Peter Strzok, who was reassigned last summer after the DOJ learned of anti-Trump, pro-Clinton text messages he exchanged with his mistress, FBI laywer Lisa Page. read more

Media Silent Over Chain Migration Terrorism

from Conservative Review:

MORE chain migration Islamic terrorism; more media blackout

While Americans were celebrating this long Christmas weekend, another chain migrant from an Islamic country was arrested for plotting a terror attack against the very country that admitted him. It’s part of a growing wave, almost daily, of Islamic immigrants arrested on terrorism-related charges, yet there is a complete blackout in the media about the existence of this troubling pattern and about the growing problem with imported terrorism.

Meanwhile, as we gear up for a new legislative year in Congress, the focus is all about more amnesty for illegal aliens rather than protecting Americans from the autopilote chain migration from the Middle East. The only one who cares about protecting our sovereignty is President Trump, but the runaway courts and their status as supreme arbiter of national security are rendering his actions moot. read more

WND Exclusive – Reality Will Trump Perception as Paychecks Grow

On Nov. 29, the prognosticator website FiveThirtyEight announced that, “The GOP Tax Cuts Are Even

 More Unpopular Than Past Tax Hikes.”

“Poll after poll shows that more voters than not are opposed to their efforts,” wrote the website. They claimed that only about a third of voters support the tax cut plan, and that, “the GOP bill is one of the least popular tax plans since Ronald Reagan’s day.”

Well, at least Trump and the Republicans are in good company. You may (or may not) recall the left’s visceral hatred of Reagan. His tax cut and economic plan was also to be the end of the world, but actually gave us the longest period of sustained growth during peacetime and the second-longest period of sustained growth in U.S. history.

Maybe FiveThirtyEight should instead do a little research on how often the Democrats are wrong about pretty much everything. read more

Beware the Trump Coup

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Pretty much everyone on the left has convinced themselves that it is a fait accompli regarding Trump’s impeachment. One such leftist website recently posted an article claiming that, “Trump‘s impeachment is almost inevitable at this point. There is just too much evidence that he has violated the constitution that he can’t continue to be president. It’s just a matter of time before his own party completely turns on him.”

Depending on how the 2018 midterm election shakes-out, it may be inevitable. If the democrats take back the House of Representatives, you can bet the first thing on their docket will be to present Articles of Impeachment. Heck, they already have.

However, as far as I can see, President Trump’s record thus far is completely untarnished – as being a “big meany” is not a High Crime. To date, the Mueller hit squad has found exactly squat regarding Trump ties to neither Russia, nor anything else that is an impeachable offense. You can bet the farm that if anyone had found something – anything to sink Trump, it would have been leaked. The left has employed every dirty trickster they can find to dig up something that might be construed as “treason, bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors” (Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution). They have not found, nor will they find anything. read more

Should We Defend Roy Moore or Not

I’m no great supporter of Judge Roy Moore. Heck – I was a Mo Brooks guy. He’s looking pretty good right about now – isn’t he?

It seems few are coming to Moore’s defense. Everyone is so afraid to even go near the guy for fear that if the allegations of sexual misconduct are true, anyone who once defended him would also go down in flames.

Well, I’m going to defend him and assume he’s innocent until I discover otherwise. That’s called – you got it – the American way. Some of us still believe in the arcane principle of innocent until proven guilty. You don’t have to support or even like the guy to uphold this ideal.

I will because A: These are so far just uncorroborated and baseless accusations B: At least one accuser worked for both Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden and is campaigning for Moore’s democrat opponent. C: Indications are that Corfman, the main accuser, has claimed several pastors at various churches made sexual advances at her. D: “Former Secret Service agent Doug Lewis has made an [as yet] unsubstantiated claim that a WaPo reporter named “Beth” offered a family friend $1000 to accuse Roy Moore, and that a tape of the offer is in the hands of the DA.” Lewis claims the WaPo reporter lives right outside D.C. and donated to Hillary and the DNC in 2016. read more
