War on Law and Order: Western Society under Siege Part II

ABBREVIATIONS AND VOCABULARY1

BLM: Black Lives Matter NBP: New Black Panthers

RGI: Racial Grievance Industry SPLC: Southern Poverty Law Center

Before a drop of water fell from the skies, two outcomes were predictable with respect to recent hurricanes (Texas and Puerto Rico); looters would issue forth from the muck they inhabit and Leftists would grandstand commonplace weather events claiming manmade global warming as their cause. Now racism has been added to the mix. White journalist and author Sarah Jaffe declared on social media the Miami Police Department’s warning against looting demonstrates that; “The carceral (sic) [Spanish for jail or prison] state…is inseparable from white supremacy.”2 Aren’t assumptions by liberals that looters are black racist? In any criminal investigation police ask who had a motive, how would they profit? Ever wonder why shrill proponents of man-made global warming typically are socialists and enemies of the 2nd Amendment? Don’t see the connection? You should, they’re pounding this stuff into your kid’s heads at school. How would Leftists profit from American’s acceptance of manmade global warming? They say big problems require big government solutions but it’s really about surrendering individual liberty to the State and that mean’s them. Doesn’t anyone read anymore?3 The predictability of post-disaster looting these days is a sad commentary on societal degradation…like school shootings. After any major disaster, natural or manmade, can police protect people or are they on their own?4 Well, how are they doing now in the face of increasingly organized violence and riots? The Liberal Media, called “steno-pool typists for the Democrat Party” by radio talk show host Chris Plante, push narratives of police brutality against blacks causing inner-city “unrest” but are these narratives valid? In part one I began addressing whether or not it’s true the police, as charged, target black males for oppression and murder on behalf of the white race. This claim, dropped like napalm over inner-cities by the Left, ensures any encounter between police and blacks has the potential to explode into general violence and chaos.

Many in the Black community blame problems between races on the refusal of whites to even talk about race relations. Obama’s former Attorney General and international gun-runner Eric Holder (known in some circles as “Carlos the Jackass”) said America was a “nation of cowards” when it came to discussing race relations. Whites won’t discuss it. In addition, he claimed animus directed toward him and Obama was based on white racism.5 As a teacher, under a cloud of suspicion for being a, (cover your children’s ears) conservative, I was asked my opinion of Obama by students and colleagues. According to Holder, honesty and openness is the best way to promote race relations. Had I explained Obama, raised a communist, was waging a war against the principles contained in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, was deconstructing America’s Judeo-Christian foundations, hated the traditional family, and was dismantling economic policies that made America wealthy, wouldn’t my honesty have been a step toward “openness”? No, instead I’d have been branded a racist.6 For Holder and Leftists, the only acceptable starting point for discussions of race, crime, and the police is their perspective otherwise you’re automatically deemed a racist. Recall Obama’s claim lethal interactions between the police and black males stemmed from racism on the part of white officers? Was he right? Are police really the gravest threat to black males in America?

Consider the work of liberal University of Chicago and Yale professors Steven Levitt and John Donahue, respectively, whose national best seller, Freakonomics claims aborting black babies reduces crime. They argue unwanted and children born to single moms are typically black and more likely to grow up to become criminals. They conclude the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, (Roe v. Wade) is responsible for reducing crime in the 1990s because aborted black babies weren’t around to turn 18 in 1991 and commit crimes.7 M.I.T. professor Jonathan Grueber, Liberal mover and shaver behind Obama’s socialized national healthcare, reached the same conclusion.8 Levitt, Donahue, Grueber, and others within the population control movement, Leftists all, argue America can save itself a lot of trouble and money by ensuring black babies are never born. Liberals are the ones fanatically pushing abortion which typically takes the life of unborn black babies at a rate four times that of white babies. Nine hundred black babies are aborted every day in the U.S which comes out to 328,500 per year. Considering black women make up around 7% of the U.S. population, and have 35.6% of all abortions,9 one has to wonder why its angry bitter middle-aged liberal white women pushing abortion so hysterically. The ghosts of Sudan and Rwanda cry out. And then there is the inner-city homicide rate. By 26 July 2017, Baltimore, my old stomping ground,10 had reached 200 homicides11 with 27 in a 30 day period between 11 August and 11 September, 2017.12 They weren’t shot, stabbed, or bludgeoned to death by the police. So who then is waging war against blacks? BLM insists its cops acting as executioners on behalf of the white race.

According to Black journalist and author Taleeb Starkes, perhaps as detrimental to race relations as white indifference, if not worse, is the “Racial Grievance Industry.” This “industry,” consisting of BLM, NBP, SPLC, certain black politicians, and white dominated Left-wing organizations blame everything from black on black violence, poor education, and unemployment on white racism. Starkes asks; how can this can be true considering municipal governments, schools, police, and social programs in Baltimore, Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and other cities have been controlled not by whites but by black Democrats for decades? But BLM-RGI dismiss this fact claiming all problems afflicting the black community are the legacy and consequence of white racism. Starkes calls this the “Theory of Exploitivity”; any conflict between races is, always was, and always will be the result of white racism. Leftist mouthpieces for BLM-RGI; white college professors and the liberal media, assert “Racism is the end-all-be-all explanation” for problems in the black community therefore “no fact finding mission is necessary.” Any effort, study, and or investigation of problems within the black community whose starting point does not begin with the presumption of white racism as the root cause, is racist. End of discussion.13 For example, economist Thomas Sowell is black but his observation of a correlation between fatherless homes and Baltimore rioters and looters is considered racist if uttered by a white person14 and treasonous heresy if uttered by members of the black community.15 This echoes my experiences with liberals coast to coast; the only reason anyone could disagree with them is because they’re narrow-minded, racist, a Nazi, and stupid. Before dialogue on race relations is possible, promoters of the “Theory of Exploitivity” demand whites accept that they are inherently racist from birth and the cause of all problems between the races, then we’ll talk.16 In tandem with the RGI, white Liberals promote the notion simply being born a minority, race, sex, culture, or religion automatically renders one a victim of discrimination and racism by the dominant group, white males. Critical analysis of this presumption is taboo especially on college campuses where students enjoy an environment supportive of the free exchange of ideas.17 When debate on racial issues must begin with a stipulation of white guilt as the singular cause for all problems, is it any wonder BLM shrieks with outrage when others say; “all lives matter?”

Today, suburban middle class whites are told their comfortable gold-plated golf and tennis country-club lives are the result of slavery, exploitation, and colonial oppression of black and brown peoples. Indoctrination begins in grade school where little white children are taught they’re members of a privileged class who ensure their status atop the social and political hierarchy by denying participation in the good-life to all but members of their own race. This explains why whites want to build the “wall.” Playing on guilt instilled through brainwashing, this Marxist world-view is heavily promoted by Hollywood, by comedians, professional athletes, pop-singers, and reinforced by the Liberal Media and their handmaidens, Leftwing public school teachers. It takes little effort by college professors to administer the coup-de-grace teaching because white prosperity is built on racist exploitation, blacks are justified in rioting and looting. They are simply re-appropriating what was stolen from them in the first place. In addition, they teach, because whites control all institutions of political power, any problem in non-white communities must be the fault of whites.18 Your tax dollars at work.

Do not mistake BLM for a traditional civil rights organization. They’re not. They clash often with the old guard of the civil rights movement rejecting the non-violence of Dr. Martin Luther King in favor of belligerent confrontation and mob violence. Yusra Khogali, co-founder of the Toronto, Canada, BLM chapter declared the movement rejects the goals and tactics of the “old-guard” who led the civil rights movement in the 1960s. They reject equality, integration, and assimilation into mainstream American culture and life. Instead, they want revenge obtained through violence. Even Left-wing black “leaders” from Al Sharpton to Oprah Winfrey are denounced for not embracing violent revolution and vengeance against the white race.19 As for young (big surprise) whites seen marching with BLM, regardless of how much they sacrifice to the cause, they’re still considered racists by BLM and similar organizations. Being Caucasian means sharing collective guilt for any act of racism ever committed by any white person who ever lived, at any time in history. Therefore Caucasians are irredeemably racist.

Read BLM’s words for yourselves: “We are working to (re)build the Black Liberation movement.”20 Liberation from what? During the 1960s, the “Black Power” movement and members of various “Black Liberation” organizations, led by Max Stanford, Stokely Carmichael, Jim Forman, Malcolm X, H. Rap Brown, Willie Ricks, Eldridge Cleaver, Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, and others broke away from Martin Luther King calling for violent confrontation and revolution against white power structures and rejected King’s notions of “universal brotherhood.” Living in Northwest Philly at the time, how could I forget their pernicious influence? Like BLM, they were black segregationists demanding nothing short of war, violence, revenge, and ultimate separation from the white race.21 In their minds because all aspects of American life; family, education, culture, law enforcement, and government comprise institutionalized racism, revolution and separation is the only answer to liberate and free the black race. The success, direction, and fate of black people must be wrested from the control of white hands.22 The goals of the Black Liberation movement, embraced by BLM and allies, are exclusive. Whites making common cause will be accepted, used, and discarded. No place exists for the white man in their brave new world.

BLM makes no bones about being at war with the white race. They declare their movement is an “ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically targeted for demise.”23 Remarkably they are in a sense, correct. Black males are being targeted for extermination but, by other black males not the police or members of the white race! They claim Trayvon Martin’s “murder” (sic) by George Zimmerman was the catalyst for creation of BLM. Martin’s case was an example of police and white vigilantes on patrol looking for blacks to “murder.” BLM also attacks “black nationalism” and campaigns to “buy black” because it ignores “our sisters, queer and trans” blacks. They affirm “the lives of black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, black-undocumented folks” black felons and convicts, and blacks all “along the gender spectrum.”24 Their worldview, seen through a Marxist-Lesbian lens, claim poverty in the black community is the consequence of genocide executed through a government controlled by whites. Blacks are in prison not because they’ve committed violent crimes you see, but are innocent victims rounded up by the state for internment in concentration camps. They assert “Black queer and trans folk bear a unique burden from a hetero-patriarchal society that disposes of us like garbage and simultaneously fetishizes us and profits off of us, and this is state violence.” Does this sound like people organized simply to ensure fair treatment from the police or does a much larger agenda emerge? Their societal model is a female-led communal village, rejection of the traditional Western family (pre-1980s..ish), and their slogan is “justice, liberation, and peace” identical to the slogan of Soviet inspired Communist guerrilla movements of Africa, Asia, Southeast Asia, and Latin America in the last century. They promise to dismantle “cis-gender privilege” and free black society from the grip of heterosexuality.25 This is about Trayvon Martin?

Its clear reading BLM, NBP, and SPLC propaganda these movements aren’t about improving race relations or diffusing mistrust between blacks and the police. It’s about revolution. Communist revolution, baby. They want conflict, they want confrontation, and they want violent upheaval. Alleged white racism and police brutality are boogeyman myths effective in harnessing support in the black community, forming alliances with radical communist groups like Pantifa,26 guilt ridden whites, and neutering opposition by menacing them with being damned a racist. Bitter fruit has already been harvested in the ambush and assassination of police officers by suspects high on BLM propaganda and hatred. But what of all the stories about cops shooting unarmed innocent blacks? Stay tuned.

He said it conjured images of black people looting. I responded, “You’re the one associating race with looting. I never mentioned race.” For the Left, truth does not matter.

Responsibility

I’ve been thinking about this the past few days. Last week I changed the battery in my pickup, went to a home improvement store and bought some things to make a Sukkah for Sukkot. I brought my supplies home, unloaded and set about building the sukkah with my handy pink drill, and a few other supplies. My greenery was already to go on the roof since I had cut down a evergreen tree and then cut off the branches. As I was doing all this, I was thanking G-d for having blessed me with the Dad he did. Dad never really treated me like “girls don’t do chainsaws, girls don’t work on cars, girls don’t _____” If I wanted to learn, Dad taught me. He also taught me the stuff he thought everyone should know how to do like change a tire. My parents took responsibility for me as a child, they raised me and trained me as best they could. When I became an adult, the responsibility for my behavior and choices fell on me.

When I decided I wanted to keep a gun in the house, Dad and I had a long talk about it. A very long talk about it, the responsibility it entailed and an idea of what would happen to my life if I ever had to kill an intruder. And then he loaned me one until he found what he felt would be a good one for me.

I ran across a couple of stories the other day that made me think about my folks in that capacity. One was about a older sister that had been out with her little brother practicing elk calls. I guess they must have sounded pretty good because on the way home the 16 year old girl saw a cougar about 3 yards from her 6 year old little brother. She told the brother to run to her and she shot the cougar behind the ear with an arrow. The cougar ran off and the kids made it home. The family dog and Dad went out with an AR-15, the ones with no defensive purpose, and killed the cougar. Apparently the parents believe in actually raising children and teaching them useful things, as opposed to say, just having children.

Another was of a 12 year old boy who used a Ruger .44 magnum lever-action rifle to protect his Mom from yet another domestic violence assault. There had been 5 previous calls to the residence for domestic violence none of which had ever resulted in charge. The say the 12 year old will most likely not be charged for defending his Mom. I’m thinking 5 calls? FIVE calls and no charges? Really?

This actually does happen in the real world, children using weapons to defend themselves or their families from nature’s miscreants, both two and four legged.

John Lott has a list of stories of such incidents.

And then of course, we should all remember the case of Jessica Carpenter. When government gun control cost innocent lives.

Fear stalks Merced, California — fear of the government. Because of that fear, two innocent children died needlessly, victims of California’s “safe storage” gun laws. The mass media never told Americans what really happened in Merced. But the tale of the Merced Pitchfork Murders will not die.

See, those parents had taken responsibility for raising their children, those children knew how to handles guns safely. It was the state and a murderer that killed those children because they were unable to get to the one tool that could have saved their lives. California has mandatory safe storage.

The gun is inanimate, a tool its use in the hand. The death of a child is tragic, be it by gun, pitchfork, knife, swimming pool or attack by wild pigs. But it’s up to the parents to educate the children about guns, not toys, safe handling. That requires responsibility on the part of the parent and child.

I don’t know that this is the best web page ever on gun safety for children, but it’s pretty good.

It’s a responsibility thing. And it works best when parents and children know their responsibilities and carry them out.

At the other end of the spectrum of the “I have children” vs “I’m raising my children” are the people that are trying to take on tasks that really aren’t within their purview. Not withing the “scope” of their “practice” shall we say. Yeah, I’m kind of cracking myself up here with my humor.

Fair warning here, the source on this article is cnn #FakeNews, so you can take it for what it’s worth. But since they are obviously sympathetic to the point of view it’s what they want to put across anyway.

Fitting the narrative

 

 

 

 

Why your doctor wants to talk about guns

Your doctor already talks to you about sex, drugs and alcohol, but should they talk to you about guns, too? A newly-formed coalition of healthcare providers thinks so — and patient intervention is just one part of their plan to reduce what they call an “epidemic” of gun violence.

The organization, Scrubs Addressing the Firearm Epidemic, known as SAFE, is demanding an increase in federal funding for gun violence research, and is calling on lawmakers to implement “evidence-based policy” on guns.

At more than 30 medical schools across the country last week, students and physicians wore scrubs with SAFE’s bright red logo as they held demonstrations at their hospitals. According to Sarabeth Spitzer, a fourth-year medical student at Stanford who spearheaded the campaign, the group distributed about 2,700 of the special scrubs “to show the overwhelming consensus of health care providers that firearm violence is a public health crisis.”

Well Miss Sarabeth, heavens above please don’t ever let it be Dr. Sarabeth, there is indeed a medical crisis. And you in your little “special” scrubs aren’t doing diddly squat about it. You and your little sullen looking crew are all hat and no cattle. Seriously, look at the picture in the linked article. They all look either constipated or like little #MoneyHogg clones. Another great reason to look at the picture is if one of the little darlings ever walks into your treatment room you will know to request another doctor, a real one. One that is actually concerned about medicine. Because these knuckleheads aren’t.

Gee, here is a medical issue within their scope (stethoscope) of “practice”.

Medical Malpractice Deaths over 500 Times Higher than Accidental Gun Deaths

Medical malpractice deaths in the U.S. are over 500 times higher than accidental gun deaths.

A Johns Hopkins University study covering eight years of data found there are at least 250,000 malpractice deaths in the U.S. annually. CNBC reports the Johns Hopkins University study presents malpractice deaths on the low end, since other studies show malpractice deaths exceeding 400,000 a year.

On the other hand, accidental gun deaths hover around 500 a year.

For example, the Los Angeles Times reports there were 489 accidental gun deaths in 2015, making medical malpractice deaths over 500 times higher than deaths resulting from accidental firearm discharges.

The number of overall gun deaths in 2015—accidental, homicides, and suicides—was approximately 36,000, two-thirds of which were suicides. So 250,000 malpractice deaths is nearly seven times higher than gun deaths, even when counting intentional gun deaths.

Gee Miss Sarabeth and Co. this sort of thing doesn’t even seem to be on your radar!

So let old Auntie Sheila help you out a little bit here. GSW, Gunshot wounds, I don’t care if they are self inflicted, inflicted by the neighborhood gang banger, your spouse, your ex-spouse, your ex-spouse’s boyfriend, your ex-spouse’s girlfriend, your second cousin twice removed, you little sister, your little brother, your teacher, your teacher’s uncle, your teacher’s uncle’s dog, are all pretty much going to involve the same treatment protocols, and appear pretty much the same.

When I was in school I met a guy that had the same last name as mine, only he was in Doctor school. He’s the first one I ever heard use the phrase M. Deity complex, doctors that think they are G-d. He didn’t have it, and we wound up being good buddies.

I rather suspect Miss Sarabeth and friends are severely afflicted with M. Deity complex. I know how my buddy, and many of the other residents clawed their way through their residency phases and school and I’m unsure what it is Miss Sarabeth and Co. think they can afford to leave out to study more about the epidemic of gun violence, or perhaps she would like to extend the residency period? Do that Sarabeth, just do that, extend the residency period by a year or so. Let us know how living in hiding works out for you. And yes, I do want fries with that Southwest Salad.

Because whatever you do, don’t let that malpractice stat cause you to stop trying to shred the Constitution and affect my G-d given rights with your social justice drama. #BadMedicine

The Black Hole of Redaction

I would rather write a nation’s history than its laws [paraphrased].1

Voltaire

A false conclusion arrived at and widely accepted, is not easily dislodged, and the less it is understood, the more tenaciously it is held.”2

Georg Ferdinand Ludwig Philip Cantor: The Law of Conservation of Ignorance

Heirs to a false and hollow history, we become unwitting participants perpetuating and entrenching many many lies as we take our places in a secretly subverted pageant—and never know it.”3

Diane West

Maybe you haven’t met, but they don’t like you. They even hate you. Among many liberals, support for the 2nd Amendment constitutes a monstrous act of inhumanity worthy of scorn, derision, and social banishment. This harsh lesson was brought home to me during my 25 year tenure in public education at the hands of liberals preaching diversity and tolerance. One day two female students came by my classroom visibly upset over what their debate teacher had just said. Discovering they were on the high school’s trap team, she said in front of the entire class; “Girls like you who learn to shoot, especially on the Trap Team, grow up to become mass murderers and killers.” She was serious. Asked what to do, I suggested they share this with their coach.4 In May of that year, (2001), Paul G., a student in one of my government classes, revealed his biology teacher told the class anyone who disagreed with her was “one of those crazy conservatives” and the “dumb Republicans are owned by the NRA.” She added; “You know what would be funny? If somebody shot Charlton Heston.”5 My point; you can’t make compromises and concessions with the Left in an attempt to save any aspect of a right. To do so is like bargaining with assassins over whether they should kill you on Monday or Friday.

While researching my Masters’ thesis at the Truman Library, I worked with thousands of declassified documents many redacted in whole or part. I was investigating what Truman knew about the VENONA Spy program and whether or not he covered up the fact American spies, agents of influence, and fellow travelers had penetrated the Roosevelt administration committing treasonous acts of espionage for the Soviet Union. The short answer is, yes. Senator Joseph McCarthy, contrary to what is taught by liberal teachers (but I repeat myself), was destroyed, with help from Republicans, for daring to ask Truman whatever happened to those the FBI identified as spies. My interest in espionage may have stemmed from being the target of intense spying by liberal colleagues. Some I suspected, due to their expertise with kitchen cutlery, had previously worked in restaurants. Redactions on classified documents was done by two methods; heavy black Magic Marker and parts or entire pages covered by black dots. Because researchers are allowed to work only with copies, not originals, techniques to ascertain content from the backside were ineffective. Redactions typically hide names of allied countries and their intelligence agencies, informants, defectors, sources, and Americans under investigation by the FBI suspected of spying for the USSR. By cross-referencing documents with recent historical exposes, defector memoirs, and other sources, I was able to deduce the identities of some redacted names, British Secret Service (MI6) and Red Spy Queen Elizabeth Bentley, for example. Redaction frustrates historians because it stymies a full, truthful, and accurate accounting for an historical period. Truman was no communist and, unlike FDR, had no affection for Josef Stalin. But he recognized if the magnitude of the spy scandals got out, Republicans, who had been out of power in Congress and the White House since 1932, would spring on it to hammer Democrats possibly retaking control of Congress in 1946 and the presidency in 1948. Led by Robert Taft, Republicans were determined to dismantle FDR’s socialist New Deal and withdraw the U.S. from the U.N. Truman was even more determined to prevent this at any cost. Truman’s cover-up should rank as one of the greatest political scandals of the 20th century but good luck finding mention of it in a pop-history books or taught in Universities let alone high schools. How much worse would be the truth had I been able to completely bypass the Truman Legacy Gatekeepers, Praetorian Guard of Liberal Historians, and those in government with a vested interest in protecting the cover-up?

When working behind the SocialIST Studies Curtain, I considered biased liberal historical interpretation extant in history textbooks (liberal propaganda tracts) the worst challenge. I was wrong. Instead it’s what liberals censor, ignore, and redact from standardized curriculum and textbooks that is most problematic.6 Not taught? They don’t even know other perspectives even exist. How can students learn to analyze, assess, evaluate, and interpret history, this “critical thinking” thing I kept hearing about but seldom witnessed, if denied access to other perspectives (conservative) even those accepted as valid for generations? Why do surveys indicate high school graduates today are typically ignorant of the meaning and purpose of the 2nd Amendment, Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights, and America’s founding Judeo-Christian principles? Because this history and the truth has been surgically excised, redacted, from curriculum and textbooks, a problem that is systemic and institutionalized. Teaching must be in lockstep with approved curriculum and curriculum is written by liberals. Standardized testing, to which state and “federal” (sic) funding is in part tied to, requires students learn only that liberal infused curriculum. What role, therefore, could there be for conservative teachers?7 Rare if they can be hired in the first place, should liberals uncover one in their midst, he probably won’t be around for long. If found, at least you’ll know where Jimmy Hoffa is. Likewise, hand holding with gun confiscationist organizations, the liberal media redacted mention of President Obama’s PROMISE Program and Bucket of Chum, the Parkland, Florida mass murderer.

For the most part Americans are cognizant many red flags were ignored by school and law enforcement officials with respect to Cruz “including 39 visits to Chum’s home by police but no arrests, six school transfers in three years [behavior problems] but no expulsions, recommendations for forcible [mental] commitment but no follow through,” and all the result of a “deliberate policy.”8 Obama’s PROMISE [Preventing Recidivism through Opportunities, Mentoring, Interventions, Supports, and Education] Program was predicated on the notion minority students, especially blacks, are written up and disciplined at significantly greater rates than white students, as a result of racism on the part of teachers and administrators. Consequently, minorities are far likelier to have contact with the police and enter the criminal justice system, the school “pipeline to prison,” than white students. “Restorative Justice” was Obama’s remedial slogan. But did/does it work?

When minority students are involved in serious cases of “theft, vandalism, trespassing, drug or alcohol possession, or disorderly conduct,” [fighting, beating up other students] instead of calling the cops, “troubled-youth” [punks, bullies, drug-dealers, hoodlums, thugs, etc.] are diverted from the discipline process to counseling and “behavioral services.” The “benefit” is, troubled youth avoid the proverbial pipeline to prison. The drawback is, these hoods acquire no criminal record thus allowing continuance in their wicked ways, even buying guns. In Florida, these programs are administered in collaboration with the “NAACP, Public Defenders’ office, State Department of Criminal Justice, State Attorney’s Office, and the Broward County Sheriff’s Department.” It’s designed to give “troubled-youth” second, and in Chum’s case, dozens of second chances.9 Gang-bangers, violent psychos, rapists, bullies, and drug-dealers remain in the classroom seated next to your sons and daughters.

At this writing there is conflicting information as to whether or not Chum was in the PROMISE Program although the consensus is yes. Deputy Jeff Bell, President of the Broward County Sheriff’s Deputies Association, observes that if Chum, recommended over and over for counseling services, had instead been arrested (trespass and various acts of disorderly conduct), he wouldn’t have legally been able to buy a firearm.10 Obama’s PROMISE Program was “pioneered” by “Obama-connected” Broward County School Superintendent Robert Runcie. He implemented it at Marjory Stoneman-Douglas High (MSDH) in 2013, where Cruz attended. He bragged his program reduced “student misdemeanor arrests by 63 percent, expulsions among general-education students [called regular-education where I taught] by 27 percent, and 54 percent among exceptional education students [Special-Education where I taught] and suspensions by approximately 30 percent.11 You get more of what you subsidize. Not only are kids saved from accountability for their actions through diversion, their crimes and contact with administrators at times goes unreported and undocumented. Abracadabra, with the wave of the liberal’s magic wand, reporting of incidents of crime, including violence, bullying, sexual assault, and suspension drop dramatically because in some cases, they are no longer documented, they don’t exist. You can’t punish what was swept under the rug. Never happened. Kids, especially those in “protected groups,” are spared having to face the consequences of their behavior. Do you think they don’t figure this out? What a great way to prepare them for the real world. This is what Runcie did. Instead of arrest and accountability, they get a hug. For this Runcie was named Florida Superintendent of the Year (2015) and won millions of dollars in state and “federal” (sic) grants.12 For teachers desiring promotion, to teach the “desirable” courses, and even to hold on to their jobs, they’d better keep their mouths shut and be a “team player” or else.

Under Obama’s PROMISE Program, school districts were “encouraged” to dispose of crimes including “assault, sexual violence, and drug possession” (see the pattern forming?) in-house not reporting them to the police enabling bad kids to graduate without criminal records. School administrators have a self-interest lying to the state and parents about what goes on in their schools. To pump up enrollment, academic ranking, and win support for incessant property tax levies and bond measures, administrators must paint schools in the best possible light possibly fudging student attendance, academic achievement, and crime statistics. Funding for schools and massive cafeteria programs, where your dollars go to feed someone else’s kids, are tied, in part, to attendance rates. Truant kids and those suspended or in jail, are detrimental to those rates and funding. Hence some kids get a stay-out-of-jail or “never-go-to-jail” card.13

In Parkland, Florida, Bucket of Chum introduced himself as a “school shooter” long before his rampage. His school psychiatrist (May 3, 2014, the year before Superintendent Runcie won his award) revealed Chum described dreams of “killing people” and seeing them “covered in blood.” School officials developed a safety plan to remove sharp objects and weapons from his home and teachers received emails warning that Chum was dangerous, had made threats, and wasn’t allowed on campus with a backpack because he had been found with ammunition on his person. Peers say Chum talked about shooting up the school on Instagram, information that was given to the Office of the School Resource Officer as well as Broward County Sherriff’s Department. Law enforcement tip lines received numerous calls about Cruz (2008-2017) warning he was violent, mentally unstable, had weapons and planned to shoot up the school. Police interviewed Chum but did nothing. No effort was made to have him adjudicated mentally incompetent and remove his firearms. Apparently selling knives from a lunch box at school wasn’t enough to get Chum arrested either. He often discussed killing parents and others on social media. Ex-girlfriend Ariana Lopez reported to school officials that Chum was dangerous and stalking her but they did nothing.14

Following Chum’s massacre of classmates and teachers, Runcie and other school officials raced to microphones claiming they had had no warnings, phone calls, or threats to indicate Chum was dangerous. None of these denials were true. The failure of Welcome-Back-Coddler and other misguided little or no discipline programs have begot a growing cohort of violent unhinged kids in American society. Liberals, terrified of being called the label they so eagerly lather all over everyone else; “racist,” and because they are so arrogant, considering themselves the anointed saviors of society, can never admit they are wrong. Liberals unleashed a full-fledged war against God, the traditional family, moral values, the legitimacy of notions like right and wrong, good and evil, substitution for “problems” (intrinsic to the individual and therefore his fault) with “issues” (extrinsic, therefore someone else’s fault), and ameliorated by humanistic counseling and Dr. Feel-Good meds, and thus are reaping a most terrible harvest. Liberal social and education policies, J’ accuse, the past forty-fifty years, has birthed these terrible violent sociopathic kids. Because they cannot admit fault, they cannot see the truth. Because they cannot see truth, they cannot accept sensible common sense solutions with respect to violence at school. Because you live in the same world, everyone suffers and more of your children will die.

I Support Liberal Gun Control

I think I need to reconsider my stance on gun control. I had an interesting conversation with Professor Yitzhak Goldstein this evening. We were lamenting the decreasing number of young people that seem to be involved in Second Amendment rights groups. We then began to discuss possible reasons, which got me to thinking about things I’ve read recently. I think I see a pattern here.

Let’s just briefly touch on a not that long ago incident. A liberal college professor was so unfamiliar with his students and so distrusted them, that when the Kansas legislature began to allow students to have the means to defend themselves as hundreds of other college campuses have, he was so scared he wet his depends and then wrote out his letter of resignation, or it could have been the other way round, who knows. He was soon followed by a female college professor with the same lack of knowledge of her students. So, if you didn’t remember this, there is a backstory.

Around 11th September a group of students at the fine institution of Goldsmith’s University in London decided to showcase their fantastic knowledge of history by replying to a teacher they disagreed with that they would send her to the “gulag”. The teacher I think, understandably took offense. The students then “enlightened” the poor misguided uninformed teacher about gulags.

Gulags, really? Who knew!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The reality?

Historians, however, have concluded that Stalin’s gulags were used to jail everyone from petty criminals to political opponents, including gay men and women.

The report said, “Soviet files show that 1,053,829 people died in the camps between 1934 and 1953, mostly as a result of deliberate starvation.”

The Christian Institute estimated that about 20 million people were incarcerated in the gulags, with “prisoners working up to 14 hours a day in extreme weather. Countless numbers died.”

Hmm, I’m continuing to wonder about the state of higher education. It seems that higher education has become the stronghold of the liberal left. Which makes one part of this article seem strange to me. I agree with most of it though. Who is pushing Jews out of academia in the US?

Dr. Sharona Aharoni-Goldenberg, an expert on the struggle against BDS, says that the Trump administration’s decision, according to which anti-Israel activity on college campuses will be defined as anti-Semitism, is a turning point in the fight against anti-Semitic activity on campuses.

“This is a very important decision. The BDS movement today, which really appears to be activated by an invisible hand – and the feeling is that it is funded by totalitarian elements – works to remove Jews from academia. There is real activity against Israeli lecturers, regardless of their position or opinion, but rather because they are Israelis,” Aharoni-Goldenberg said in an interview with Israel Hayom.

“The activity is not just against Israeli lecturers. If you are a Jewish professor who uploads a post for Israel, you will be fired,” she says. “It’s not a parable, US lecturers who worked against ‘Apartheid Week’ were fired from the institutions at which they taught. The same applies to many Jewish students who simply feel uncomfortable on campus.”

All spot on Dr. Sharona, except this part.

“This anti-Semitism is against Israelis and against Jews, regardless of their position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The boycott is also against people on the left,” she said. “The BDS position is that we have to bring 5 million Palestinians back into the Green Line and destroy Israel.”

No, no Dr. Sharona, the problem is coming from the left. Think about Jeremy Corbyn, the one in the UK that should he become Prime Minister about 40% of Britain’s Jews are planning to flee. You have to recognize your enemy or you will get blindsided every time.

The tolerant left, which tells us to celebrate diversity (as long as it is approved by them). Student allegedly rips MAGA hat off classmate’s head, slaps teacher

Little Miss Chumette Bucket decided that stealing private property from another student, assaulting them and then assaulting a teacher is an acceptable “political statement”.

In cellphone video, a teacher is seen trying to subdue fired-up 17-year-old senior Chumette Bucket after she became enraged at a classmate for wearing the MAGA hat.

She grabbed the hat off his head.

“That’s a racist and hateful symbol,” Bucket said.

……

“Maybe just wake people up in some type of way, because it’s not cool, the environment our classroom is in,” Bucket said.

EXCUSE ME????? The environment the classroom is in?? Who assaulted another student and a teacher because of a innocent hat?? Correct, the profanity spewing tolerant leftist which feels violence towards someone she disagrees with is acceptable.

Then there’s the interview with her Dad.

Doesn’t think she maybe should have handled it that way, but maybe it was a conversation that needed to happen.

YOU. IDIOT.

What conversation took place? What do you think was accomplished? You Mr. Bucket, are a part of this girls problem. And she does have problem, she assaulted a fellow student and a teacher and is standing there grinning like a possum and proud as can be of herself. Either she has no clue how to fit into polite society or she is on some sort of medication, and looking at her eyes, that might be it. Or maybe she is just not right in the head. As her parent? I’d give you an F-

So, I’m saying that educational institutions have a strong leftist bent, very strong, very bent. So bent we have a sociology professor in Las Vegas that carried a concealed pistol that the did not have a permit to carry, concealed into a gun free building on his campus and, shot himself in the arm. But hey, he’s thoughtful. Why?

Inside the bathroom, campus police found a $100 bill taped to a mirror along with a note that said, “For the janitor,” according to Bird’s arrest report. On the floor of the restroom was a black-and-white, .22-caliber pistol and one spent shell casing.

Why? Because he wanted to protest President Trump.

Nope, not making it up. So, I’m going to advise Professor Yitzhak that I think we need to revise our opinion of liberal gun control. I think liberals absolutely need to be thoroughly vetted before they are even allowed in the same room with a gun. And that is why liberals want gun control, they think we are like them, they think we think like they do. They have their isolated ivory tower and are turning out indoctrinated little Chumette Buckets. They teach them how evil the Zionist state is. The one Jewish state in the world, by the way, but don’t dare call them antisemitic. How bad guns are, people can’t be trusted with them, except of course for their paid bodyguards.

But here’s the deal. Ivory towers and schools most often these days, are not reality. Conservatives know this. We know life can be unpredictable, we choose responsibility, we choose preparedness. We know theory quite often, isn’t reality.

Move Along, Nothing To See Here, Nope, No Genocide Whatsoever

Zimbabwe

Let’s have a little look at history, shall we? First up Zimbabwe. At one time known as the Jewel of Africa for it’s prosperity. It is now known as yet another country that depends on aide to survive. When the country declared independence from Britain in 1965 the country changed from Southern Rhodesia to Rhodesia. Mugabe became Prime Minister in February of 1980, and opposition erupted.

A) The Fifth Brigade, a North Korean-trained elite unit that reported directly to the Zimbabwean Prime Minister,entered Matabeleland and massacred thousands of civilians accused of supporting “dissidents”.

Estimates for the number of deaths during the five-year Gukurahundi campaign ranged from 3,750 to 80,000. Thousands of others were tortured in military internment camps. The campaign officially ended in 1987 after Nkomo and Mugabe reached a unity agreement that merged their respective parties, creating the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU–PF).

….

Well, off to quite a start for a new “democratic” government with a policy of enfranchisement. So they doubled down.

Land redistribution re-emerged as the main issue for the ZANU-PF government around 1997. Despite the existence of a “willing-buyer-willing-seller” land reform programme since the 1980s, the minority white Zimbabwean population of around 0.6% continued to hold 70% of the country’s most fertile agricultural land.

B) In 2000, the government pressed ahead with its Fast Track Land Reform programme, a policy involving compulsory land acquisition aimed at redistributing land from the minority white population to the majority black population. Confiscations of white farmland, continuous droughts, and a serious drop in external finance and other supports led to a sharp decline in agricultural exports, which were traditionally the country’s leading export-producing sector. Some 58,000 independent black farmers have since experienced limited success in reviving the gutted cash crop sectors through efforts on a smaller scale.

President Mugabe and the ZANU-PF party leadership found themselves beset by a wide range of international sanctions.In 2002, the nation was suspended from the Commonwealth of Nations due to the reckless farm seizures and blatant election tampering.The following year, Zimbabwean officials voluntarily terminated its Commonwealth membership.

And how did that turn out? Did it bring prosperity and peace to the country at long last? Um, not so much.

In a 2016 column Robin Mitchinson gives quite a different story. Let’s start with A)

Not that Mugabe will shed tears for Matabeleland any more than he did in the 1980s when he unleashed the notorious 5th Brigade in a genocidal campaign against them. It is thought that these North Korean-trained butchers murdered at least 20,000 Matabele in their so-called ‘gukurahundi’ (the rain that washes away the chaff).

These were not the so-called ‘dissidents’ opposing Mugabe’s one-party monstrosity. They were for the most part ordinary villagers scratching a living in the bundu.

The 5th Brigade gained an horrific reputation for committing atrocities — slashing open the wombs of young pregnant girls, forcing villagers to dig their own graves and then shooting them in them; a mother was forced to eat her own child.

A favourite torment especially for village headmen was to wrap them in plastic bags and set fire to them. I met one such who had survived; he was horribly disfigured with the black pigment burned away from his skin.

Moving on to B)

This time it’s Zimbabwe, so before reaching for the cheque-book, it is wise to reflect on why these people are starving. Mugabe says it is because of drought.

It is not. It is entirely self-inflicted. Zimbabwe has had famine conditions in 2001 (the year farm seizures began), 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2008. 2014, 2015 and now! Some drought!

Prior to the seizure of white-owned farms from 2001, Zimbabwe produced 3 million tons of maize (at least those farmers did), almost exactly twice its own needs. This year it is expected to be 600,000 tons, only a third of the quantity needed to feed itself. Zimbabwe has gone from being the breadbasket of Southern Africa to its basket case. Only about 100 white farmers remain from the original 5,000.

And it is not as if the seized land is being farmed. The stated intention was to redistribute the land to former terrorists. Instead, much of it was allocated to Mugabe’s cronies and has lain fallow ever since.

As well as maize, these farmers produced beef of the highest quality, especially from pedigree Herefords. Now it is all gone. The breeding animals have all been slaughtered for nyama (meat) despite their otherwise high value as pedigree breeding stock.

The entire livestock industry has been vandalised. The population of Matabeleland has fallen drastically through malnutrition, Aids, and emigration.

The title of the article? Zimbabwe’s socialist famine. And yet, the ignorant keep reaching for socialism.

How has it affected the lives of those who should have benefited from these socialist policies? ‘Zimbabwe never had food shortages before. Mugabe has caused this famine’ The whole article has a lot more detail on how their lives are going.

When Mafu arrived in Makokoba, Bulawayo was still a prosperous city dominated by the white-owned businesses and farms that made Zimbabwe one of Africa’s richest regions. Two years ago, as President Mugabe’s land grab destroyed the economy, Mafu lost his job as a cleaner.

“When the Europeans were here, we could cope,” he said. “I had money to buy food and a clinic handed out free drugs. Now we have no jobs, no income, inflation is 1,000 per cent and when we go to hospital they ask us for money. If we have none, we are turned away.”

So what made this so much easier to accomplish? Zimbabwe — Gun Facts, Figures and the Law

So it’s not like this has never happened, and did anything much happen? Nope, just aide money. Did the UN send peacekeepers? Monitors? Anything?

South Africa

So, the current situation in South Africa. Boer is the Dutch and Afrikaans noun for “farmer”. And being a Boer, farmer is South Africa is now the most dangerous profession in the world. Yes, move over Deadliest Catch.

There have been dozens of recorded farm murders so far in 2017, an average of one farm attack per day, according to South African media reports.

White South African farmers are between two and three times more likely to be murdered than even South African police officers.

They are also more likely to be killed than U.S. troops serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.

And,

The international average murder rate is 7 per 100,000, he noted. “In the case of mainly white farmers in South Africa, the figure is a staggering 133 per 100,000,”

OY.

The brutality of these attacks is truly horrifying. People are beaten to death, tortured with blow torches, electric drills, dragged behind vehicles, stabbed, raped and the list goes on. But it doesn’t stop with people, from Twitter.

In Magaliesberg, #SouthAfrica, these so called people killed a farmer’s stock yesterday by cutting pieces of flesh from the cattle while they are alive. I get that it is OK to hurt white farmers, but are liberals OK with the animal abuse too, just because the owner is white???

I wish I hadn’t clicked on “more”. It was a picture. I really wish I hadn’t. That of course, is far from the only incident. Torturing and killing animals and the farm families is seen as a way to “nudge” them off the land.

And why would people think they can get away with such heinous crimes? Well, how about because their government is calling for them. From a 2017 article:

“Bury them alive.” ~~Minister of Higher Education Mduduzi Manana

“Shoot the Farmer, Kill the Boer” is a song, sung by both Julius Malema, then President of the African National Congress Youth League and then South African President, Jacob Zuma.

“People of South Africa, where you see a beautiful land, take it, it belongs to you,”~~ Julius Malema

“We are not calling for the slaughter of white people‚ at least for now,”~~ Julius Malema

The goal is to drive the farmers off the land, and give it to those the African National Congress decides they want to have it. This is very much communism, and they make no bones about it. The result is you have horrific murders taking place probably daily but the South African Police stopped releasing data on the race of the crime victims in 2007. They also quit caring about the murdered farmers. Showing up at a murder scene was five police cars who thought the farmer had shot intruders. When they found out the intruders had murdered the white farmer, they turned around and left. In fact crimes against the farmers including the murders of the farmers are rarely solved.

In 2014 AfriForum released a report on Farm Tortures in South Africa. It has done nothing but get worse.

But with all the misplaced confidence of a communist, Jacob Zuma blathered

Speaking in Parliament in early March, Zuma called for “black parties” to unite to change the Constitution so that white-owned farms could be taken without compensation to be redistributed.

“We need to take bold steps that will transform our economy, including land ownership, very fast,” Zuma said.

“We are busy amending [laws] to enable faster land reform, including land expropriation without compensation as provided for in the constitution,” he added.

He has all the smarts of a community organizer. Yeah, they’re going to fundamentally transform South Africa. And since the communists in charge have no knowledge of farming they don’t know that you don’t just kill people off, shove them off or steal their land and replace them with people that know nothing about farming and still get food. According to Ilanna Mercer 70% of the land seized by the African National Congress is lying fallow. She also has an excellent column on the tactics being used by state sponsored killers.

Why do I say state sponsored? Because

New evidence that has emerged this year also suggests state sponsorship of the attacks, according to South African security sources.

In a series of security camera images captured by farmers in farm attacks and seen by WND, a group of black attackers carry advanced technological equipment such as cell-phone signal jammers, presumably to ensure that the farmers cannot call for help.

Because common criminals and burglars rarely have the means or the knowledge to purchase or operate such systems, some analysts speculated that rogue members of the South African military may have provided them.

Maybe the farmers should form groups for like mutual defense? Yeah,,,,,they did that.

Authorities also deliberately dismantled the “commando” self-defense units that once effectively provided security for rural areas.

Officials have also made it increasingly difficult for citizens to be armed for self-defense.

This year from a 7th June article

On June 7th the Constitutional Court in South Africa, overruled a lower court’s decision that parts of South Africa’s gun laws were unconstitutional. The ruling will force hundreds of thousands of gun owners who didn’t renew their permits to turn in their firearms. There’s no provision for appeal or legitimate reasons for delay, such as hospitalization or death.

Compensation is $37 for a pistol, $75 for a rifle, maximum.

Here is an interview with John Welch, President of South African Gun Owners Association.

Registration, confiscation, communist/socialist government leads to a really bad outcome for some segment of the population. A very old and seen too often story. Genocide Watch currently has the situation in South Africa at 6 out of a scale of 10. Genocide Watch.

Many of those in the corrupt government claim it’s a response to the land being “stolen” from the original inhabitants. Which is pretty much baloney. In the article on the Boers the history states Dutch immigrants first arrived to the practically uninhabited Western Cape of South Africa in 1652. But that’s how communism works, some work hard to build up the land, a business, their families and then someone who knows nothing, and has done nothing is allowed to take it. And in South Africa? It’s done with extreme brutality. Do they think companies are going to be willing to invest money in South Africa knowing that their assets could be seized at anytime by the equality minded communists? They are indeed on the same path as Zimbabwe and Venezuela. I for one, do not want to see American tax dollars going to bail them out. This is what they chose.

When America was accepting all the “refugees” from countries that could give us no information on who was coming in, we never looked at importing the hardworking Boers?

I don’t really watch TV stations like cnn or msnbc #FakeNews, I have a limit as to how much I will knowingly allow people to lie to me. Thirty seconds on either station goes over the mark. But in the effort to be pretty sure I did a quick search on their websites. The search terms are in the address bars. These atrocities are not being covered at the #MSM #FakeNews stations. Nor should they count on much help from the UN. The UN is very busy with what it considers real human rights problems. This has been going on, and yet, List of United Nations resolutions concerning Israel. Well, that certainly puts things in perspective doesn’t it?

[UPDATED] Rotters – Their THIRD iteration

See update below. Data changed again.


I mean Reuters. Making stuff up as they go. They published a chart: Violence in Europe: Average annual number of deaths from lethal gun victimisation per 100,000 in select European countries, 2010-2016.

If you click that link, I have no idea what data you’ll get. On Tuesday, it purported to show Cyprus, just as an example since it was the top of the chart… then, with an overall firearms death rate of 63.9 per 100,000, and 82.4/100K among males 15-29. I’m not familiar with Cyprus numbers, so maybe that is was correct.

I am a little more familiar with UK numbers. Reuters showed them at overall 2.6/100K, and 6.9/100K among 15-29 year-old males.

That bastion of accuracy, Wikipedia shows Cyprus at 1.87/100K overall, and the UK at 0.23/100K. But at least Wikipedia links to their sources. Reuters simply says “Source: World Health Organization.” Maybe, but I can’t find it.

For the record, Wikipedia shows the US at 11.96/100K, which happens to be exactly what CDC says for 2016. So there’s a cross-check on Wikipedia data, something lacking in the Reuters data. According to Reuters (Tuesday), there were at least twelve European countries with firearms death rates exceeding that of the US: Switzerland, Denmark, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, Moldavia, Estonia, Norway, Macedonia, Serbia, Sweden, and Cyprus.

That’s not exactly what you usually hear: that the US has a higher rate than any other developed nation (or whatever term they toss out du jour).

Since I could find the WHO data, I wrote to Reuters.

Regarding the chart:

I have been unable to locate the data on the WHO web site. Would it be possible to give me a link to the source data used by Gustavo Cabrera?

Thank you.

As expected, no response other than an automated ” being reviewed by our support staff” email.

But on Wednesday, the chart had changed.

Now, no country has an overall rate exceeding 0.5/100K; safely below that of the US. Maybe. But look closely, because on Tuesday, overall population was indicated by the black outline, and males 15-29 were pale blue. On Wednesday, the labelling is reversed. Either Wednesday labels are a mistake, or — unlike the US — males 15-29 are some of the safest people in Europe.

Take a look at the scale(s)…

On Tuesday:

0 to 100, to accommodate the sky-high Cyprus.

On Wednesday:

0.0 to that 0.5.

So suddenly everyone in Europe has a lower firearms death rate than the US… including nations that were experiencing civil wars in the indicated time frame. And the data of neither day bears any resemblance to that found elsewhere on the Internet. If Reuters is to be believed, the UK doesn’t have any firearms deaths. Which seems a little hard to believe.

UPDATE, Thursday, 8/16/2018: They’re on the third interation of that chart now.
But at least they now have a correction notice.

Correction: a previous version of this graphic contained a number of mathematical errors resulting in incorrect data and wide inaccuracies . This data has been changed to reflect the corrected numbers. For example, from 2010-2016 in Sweden there was an average of 1.2 gun-related deaths per 100,000 men aged 15-29, not 80.4 as was previously charted.

At least some of the numbers now bear a passing resemblance to data I found from other sources. Reuters provided me with a spreadsheet of their data, which was used to create this third version of the chart.

Note that numbers have changed, as have rankings, and even country labels.

The scale has changed again, too.

Reuters also gave me a link to the WHO database they used. Checking that will take a lot longer.

I think it’s pitiful — but typical — that Reuters only corrected this — and admitted to the correction — after being called out on it three times (yes, I sent them three messages regarding the inaccuracies). Once upon a time, Reuters was my go-to news service, but I ended that probably 20 years ago over just such errors and practices (not to mention an anti-RKBA slant you could ski down).

Take the 3D AR Challenge!

The aptly named “Crooks and Liars” believes… well, let Ms. Madrak tell you:

Do-It-Yourself Plastic Guns: What Could Go Wrong?
“Tomorrow morning, the sun will be shining, the birds will be singing and anyone will be able to legally download instructions to 3d print their own fully-functional plastic gun, including the AR-15, a weapon of war. What could possibly go wrong?” Avlon said.

And that’s what happens when you get your facts from CNN.

I’ve decided to issue a challenge:

3D-print a fully-functional, plastic AR-15, and successfully demonstrate it. The first person to do so will win 10 rounds of equally functional, 100% plastic 3D-printed .223 Remington ammunition.

For contest purposes, “fully-functional” means the AR system must operate per standard design. It must be “fully semiautomatic,” firing a complete, 30-round magazine. ARs are designed with quick reloads in mind, so the test must include a magazine change, with the full second 30-round magazine fired.

It’s a system, so the magazines must also be 3D-printed in plastic in their entirety.

The presence of any metallic component will disqualify any entry.

The test must use conventional, off-the-shelf, commercial ammunition.

Contest entrants are solely responsible for compliance with the Undetectable Firearms Act and other federal laws, state/local laws, and their own personal safety.

Entries may be submitted via video which adequately shows that all components of the AR system are compliant with contest rules (i.e.- 3D-printed plastic), or in person at my location.

There are no restrictions on the type of plastic used, so long as it is extruded by the printer.

All firearms entered remain the property of their creators.

Contest entry closes at 11:59 PM on August 31, 2018.

In the event of a tie (two qualifying entries received simultaneously), the winner will be the person who shows what nation generally issues the “AR-15, a weapon of war,” to its regular troops.

Send video links, or arrange in-person demonstrations, to me at bussjaeger@zelmanpartisans.com.

The stupid, it burns.

I’m getting a little burned out lately from dealing with stupidity, so pardon me if this gets a little rough around the edges.

Or the middle.

Gun controller dimwits are going nuts over the possibilty of DefDist putting its 3D printer files back online. A group of technologically-ignorant idiots tried to get an injunction to block the release; it was denied for lack of standing since no one has ever demonstrated being injured by a 3D-printed gun used in crime. I’m tempted to point them at the gun plans on Amazon just to watch all of their little pointy heads explode. And maybe at Lowes. And then the merchants of death of the plumbing industry can lobby for a Protection of Lawful Commerce in Pipe Act.

New Jersey sent DefDist a cease & desist letter, because no NJ gangbanger ever built a zip gun from pipe.

Pennsylvania convinced DefDist to block download from the SSRPA. Now they have to convince every VPN and proxy company in the world to block PA, to make that effective. Hey, they’ve had 16 years years to figure it out. Now all they need is a law against illegal drugs, murder, robbery crime and they’ll achieve frickin’ Utopia.

Except people have been generating printer files and experimenting with no designs the whole time the State Department had DefDist offline… to prevent export of gun designs. Domestic use is peachy, and not regulated by ITAR.

The aptly named name Hello Giggles fears undetectable plastic printed AR-15s. 1) I challenge Ms. Sheffer to produce a wholey plastic, printed, working AR. 2) And do it without falling afoul of the thirty year-old law against “undetectable” plastic guns… or ceramic Glocks, or whatever makes the panty-pissers dampen their drawers next.

Noted international ballistics experts Anthony A. Braga, PhD and Philip J. Cook, PhD have discovered that diameter is the single most deadly characteristic of bullets; .356″ diameter rounds being much deadlier than .356″. I referred them to Marshall & Sanow’s Handgun Stopping Power: The Definitive Study, and attempted to explain the difference between “caliber” and “cartridge.” No response, so the dumbasses are probably still parsing the big words.

Last month, WDIV’s Amber Ainsworth reported that someone carjacked a van using a machinegun, specifically a “MAC-10.” Since neither the gunman (who apparently never fired a shot) nor the weapon have been found, I wondered how they made that determination. Neither Amber, clearly a mainstreaming hire from McDonalds’ program, nor her director bothered to reply. Neither did the DPD or the ATF (who ought to have heard something about an illicit NFA firearm used in a crime).

Amusingly, while trying find more detail on that incident, I ran across an earlier report of yet another “machinegun” used in a Detroit crime; this one was identified as an Uzi submachinegun.

The evidence photo was of a semiauto “MAC-10” variant. And they say fake news is a hoax.

As mentioned earlier, the federal government’s assorted button counters can’t agree on the number of buttons people murdered with firearms, disagreeing by nearly four thousand bodies.

Ah, well. It isn’t as though the government can figure out how many of those dead folks are still voting in Chicago and elsewhere either. Probably for more gun control.

Apparently the NRA is still growing by leaps and bounds. Pew-ie Research says its now at 14,125,392 members. LaPierre and Cox are now wracking their tiny brains trying figure out how to collect the dues from all of them, and buy new limos.

Joseph Wyatt, Professor of Psychology at Marshall University, thinks it’s high time schools were made gun-free zones. He also wants all clips limited to 10 rounds. Garand owners say, “Sure. What the heck.”

Over at Childish Vogue, “Prince Shakur” is under the impression that “Gun shows are conventions where both licensed and unlicensed firearms dealers are allowed to sell firearms.” And that’s the high point of his comprehension of Federal Firearms Licensing.

Sadly, Georgia state rep Jason Spencer is the face of pro-RKBA for the media. With “friends like these…” He should have subscribed to the TZP newsletter, too. But he’s always been such a dipstick that even that wouldn’t have saved him from making — a further — um, ass of himself.

The Actuary Magazine makes the case for firearms liability insurance because total firearms deaths and injuries from murder, suicide, accidents, and justifiable homicide exceeds deaths in motor vehicle accident deaths. No word on why they want existing firearms liability insurance programs shut down, if it’s such a great idea.

Randy Bryce, running for Congress in Wisconsin, thinks felons, domestic abusers, and the mentally incompetent should be barred from firearms possession, which not only puts him right up there with Chuck Schumer, who forgot he voted for the Undetectable Firearms Act, but probably ought to make him a prohibited person due to mental incompetence. But fully qualified to be a congresscreep.

Of course there’s the perpetual denial of little facts like most crime (and especially murders) being committed by repeat offenders, mostly convicted felon prohibited persons; or that despite an uptick in crime in Democratic strongholds crime is still near its lowest in decades (school shootings, too, Parkland Pussies)… therefore we need more laws for crooks to ignore and to violate the rights of the millions not committing the crimes.

“Common sense” my white-privileged, cis-gendered, patriarchic ass.

— sigh —

I mentioned earlier that folks could contribute to the cause to enable me to conduct further research into RKBA issues. Forget it. Kick in to buy me scotch.

Here. Have some heavily armed cats.

See? This is why we need laws for the noncriminals

Or so “Snuffy” Pfleger would have you think.

Pair charged with suburban bank robbery spree using stolen AK-47
A west suburban man and woman have been charged with robbing three banks in May using a stolen AK-47 rifle.

James D. Williams, 41, and Alexis T. Handelman, 21, are accused of three armed takeover bank robberies in a three-week period, according to a statement from the FBI. They are both residents of Bartlett.

Just another bank robbery in Chi-town, right? Why am I bringing it up?

Because these two were… geniuses

Leading up to the robberies, Williams stole an AK-47 rifle and rented different vehicles, according to the FBI. In at least one of the incidents, he attached stolen license plates to a vehicle he’d rented.

Ah! Planning. He put some thought into this. Right?

But I have to wonder about the phrasing of this line in the article.

At least one shot was fired during the Aurora robbery, but no injuries were reported, Aurora police said at the time.

I’m guessing that only one shot was fired. Take a look at this security camera picture.

Notice the distinct lack of a magazine in that rifle. Oops. Probably couldn’t figure out the rocking insert for an AK-pattern, and just said the heck with it. It being Chicago, the bank clerks apparently didn’t notice. “Look! Evil gun! We surrender.”

Down in these parts, the would-be victim would have simply kicked their butts. And gouged out their eyes.

That’s why the victim disarmers insist on more laws for we who didn’t do it: to provide safe workplaces for idiots.

Well, harumph, we do have our standards

One of the facebook groups I belong to will have members that from time to time post links to some pretty egregious anti-semitic posts on facebook or twitter. I know this is shocking considering how many people I know that have done nothing more than post a news article to a crime someone from the religion of pieces has committed and have been put in facebook jail. Usually a violent and bloody crime by the way. So this member posted about 20 links to different facebook accounts. Pretty much all of them had the same thing. A graphic with a knife dripping blood, and a prayer, which, could be translated from Arabic. The gist of the prayer is oh Allah, come a kill all the Jews, let the streets run with their blood, yada yada yada. Being a sensitive soul, I took offense. So I did what everyone else was suppose to be doing with this, we reported it. Wish I had taken a screenshot of it for you, but I didn’t intend for it to become part of a column. The post is now gone happily, but sadly for my multimedia portion of the column. Love those graphics. To my utter shock and amazement, yes I am kidding, facebook said “We reviewed your report of XXXXXXXX” it apparently doesn’t violate their community standards and is not hate speech and they suggest I just block him. Fine, how’s about I use a Centurion tank, s’ok?

Now, why did this rather unsurprising incident wind up in a column? Would you like to know what does trigger facebook’s delicate sensibilities and violate their hate speech rule? The Declaration of Independence. America’s Declaration of Independence.

Facebook labels newspaper’s post ‘hate speech’; It was the Declaration of Independence

The Liberty County Vindicator had been posting excerpts of the Declaration of Independence daily leading up to July 4th. The first nine posts were published without a problem. The 10th post, which included paragraphs 27 through 31 of the Declaration of Independence, was deleted by Facebook.

According to Casey Stinnett, The Vindicator’s managing editor, the paper received a notice from Facebook that said the post “goes against our standards on hate speech.”

Hate speech, ok, so praying to Allah to kill all the Jews and blood run through the streets like a gully washer isn’t hate speech. What is?

“While The Vindicator cannot be certain exactly what triggered Facebook’s filtering program, the editor suspects it was most likely the phrase ‘Indian savages,'” Stinnett said in the statement. “Perhaps had Thomas Jefferson written it as ‘Native Americans at a challenging stage of cultural development’ that would have been better.”

He blamed the incident on an “automated action.”

“The removal of the post was an automated action,” Stinnett wrote. “If any human being working at Facebook were to review it, no doubt the post would be allowed.”

Casey, you have far more faith and trust in facebook than I do. Because I think if the monitoring team had realized it was The Declaration of Independence, they would have gone back and taken down posts 1-9 as well. Harumph, they do after all, have their standards.
