Astro-Turf Alert

A media/advertising group is trying to start a new astro-turf group to violate rights.

United Rifle Association:

The Brief: Help Stop Gun Violence
This may be one of the world’s most difficult briefs: Tackle the gun-fatality epidemic in a way that could help lead to a solution.
[…]
Creating a counter-balance to the NRA’s political power and influence is no small task. We will start by chipping away at it bit by bit. Our strategy will be to attract moderate and progressive gun owners, with a more reasonable approach to gun rights and ownership. The result will be uniting disgruntled NRA members, moderate gun owners and disenfranchised public representatives in a place where it is safe to vote their conscience.

Speaking personally as “disgruntled” former NRA member, let me tell you that I’m not in the market for more freaking gun people-controlling human/civil rights violations.

Got ideas? Submit them to Creativity Editor Ann-Christine Diaz at adiaz@adage.com.

Oh, yes. Do.

Possible talking points:

  • The anti-gun VPC admits several hundred thousand defensive firearms uses per year. Won’t that be difficult if the defensive tools are locked up?
  • Roughly two-thirds of firearms-related deaths are suicides. Won’t the suicidally inclined simply unlock the implements, or use something else?
  • The vast majority of murders are committed by prior felons with stolen guns. How do you propose to get them to “safely secure” their weapons?
  • Accidental firearms-related deaths are at a decades (possibly all-time) low. Maybe we’re already fixing the problem.
  • Guns and honest gun owners don’t seem to be the problem. Have you considered incarceration, education, and self-defense?
  • We already have a pro-gun people-control group. It’s called the National Rifle Association.

Your……Call

I recently ran across some article that just seem to fit together. And while the country wasn’t America, the discussions are certainly ones that have taken place in America.

The article that caught my eye was in an Israeli newspaper. I know, you’re dumbfounded, right?

It’s about a group of German women that are rising up against the government. Quite similar to the American protest in that it’s women protesting their treatment at the hands of men. While American women walk around with silly pink hats on their heads and offensive signs to show how liberated and feminist they are, they protest against (mostly it seems) about the election of a man who “said bad things”. Mind you they do this marching around fully in the daylight and in the open. They know as long as they don’t break any laws they won’t have any problems. So you can tell they are very brave in speaking out. Yes, I’m being sarcastic #NoForcedHijab. Even that paragon of courage Linda Sarsour didn’t go to Iran to support her sisters as they protest having been forced to wear a hijab.

No, the German women’s protest is quite different.

Women? Yep
Protesting something male related? Yep
Signs and youtube videos? Yep
Silly hats and offensive signs? Nope
Protesting something legitimate? YES, oh HECK YES

Ahh, think we’ve found the difference. German women rise up

‘Because of your immigration policies, we soon face a majority of young men who come from archaic societies with no women’s rights.’

……….

A study commissioned by the German government using data from Lower Saxony concluded that migrants “may be responsible” for most of Germany’s recent rise in violent crime. More than 90% of the increase was attributed to young male migrants.

“Because of your immigration policies, we are facing soon a majority of young men who come from archaic societies with no women’s rights. You knew that, and you accepted it. You knew that, you accepted it, and you abandoned us. You sacrificed us.”

A Pew study found that the Muslim population in Europe will continue to grow in the coming decades even if migration to the continent is completely halted.

……

“It can’t go on like this. Pepper spray and pocket alarms are already the basic equipment of European women. Going jogging has become the most dangerous sport for us.

The average decibel of the average pocket alarm is 120 db. How loud is that?

110 Extremely loud Rock concert, chainsaw
120 Human voice at its loudest, police siren
130 Thunder
140 Pain threshold First Monday of the month siren from close by

So, it’s kind of like screaming in terror, except maybe the alarm can do it longer? Especially if the throat screaming for help is cut or a hand/s is/are clapped over the mouth doing the screaming for help.

Pepper spray, the other piece of standard equipment. How far will it spray? How long? Depends.

Regular pepper spray that probably most of the German women, and indeed European women sound like they are carrying are about a half ounce and will spray from 5 to 35 seconds with a reach of 5 to 12 feet. And you hope the wind isn’t against you. But you can get a foam spray.

You could go with bear pepper spray. With that you will get almost a 8 oz can, but it while it will only last 8 seconds, it will go 16 feet. Yeah, I’m not liking this one either.

What if the wind is against you, or more come after the fight ensues?

Now I’m sure they would prefer you do the “civilized” thing in a country that is becoming most uncivilized towards women. Just “call the police”. From this report the time till your emergency call is answered is 3 to less than 30 seconds. Response time seems to range from 8 to 15 minutes, a quarter of an hour. You know, a quarter of an hour is a long time to wait while you scream at the top of your lungs for help and watch as your pepper spray is empty and your attackers are now pissed. And still there, just out of reach of the pepper spray. They in the meantime have used their cellphones to “phone a friend”. Think you will still be there 12 minutes later when the police arrive?

Which brings me to the next column I would like to reference, Up In Arms: German Small Arms Ownership Soars 85% In Under 2 Years

Two years after your chancellor decides to admit over 1 million undocumented middle-eastern immigrants to boost the economy and instead gets a series of terrorist attacks in return, this is the outcome: “Germans are taking up arms of angst.”

………

There is a growing feeling that the state cannot sufficiently protect its citizens and therefore they must protect themselves. Recent cuts to the police force contributed to the problem.

No kidding? Ya think?

But Germany has very strict gun control laws, to keep everyone safe, of course. So they can pretty much only buy non-lethal weapons. But as in America, there are those that are telling the women that getting a gun is not the way to go.

However, Holger Stahlknecht, state interior minister in Saxony-Anhalt, isn’t convinced. He worries about the current trend and warns that arming oneself with small weapons can lead to a false sense of security. “Obviously, people believe they are buying safety with a small gun license,” he said.

“However, this sense of security is deceptive, since these weapons could escalate a situation and could even be used against the owner.”

Well, #1 Old Holger Stahlknecht is a government minister. And as I recall from another column I did, the government doesn’t appreciate anyone speaking out publicly against their “poor refugees”. So. And #2, Old Holger IS a man. Not so sure he is in sync here with the women who fear attack from his government’s policies.

Now I’ve heard the 9mm is called the European .45, so lets just look at the 9mm caliber cartridge. Looks like it’s roughly 980 to 1600 ft/sec.

Huh, how about that. And it doesn’t matter which way the wind is blowing, it’s unlikely to end up in your face. There is a good chance once you produce the delivery mechanism they may decide to go for easier pickings. Like maybe Old Holger, or Nanny Angela Merkel? Oh, wait no, they have government paid for security. Just women those in the video don’t.

The German government killed 6 million Jews, and 5 million dissents, gays, gypsies and assorted others. Now the German government chose to import millions of people that threaten the lives, liberty and way of life in Germany. Maybe some day the German government will learn, not all things are the same. Maybe some day they will learn to tell good from evil, right from wrong. Today apparently, isn’t that day.

There are a variety of ways to respond to the threats, it’s your call.

[UPDATE] Oops: “Authorized Urinalists”

I originally posted this on my personal blog, Random Acts of Gibberish, but it’s too funny not to share with a wider audience.


Oopsie, someone has a little explaining to do

…to the ATF.

AJC.com, the Atlanta Urinal-Constipation just published a story claiming a reporter built an assault rifle.

I helpfully emailed authorized urinalist, Ken Foskett to explain that if that’s true, someone is going to prison.

Interestingly, it took some searching to find Foskett’s email address. AJC killed the link to the reporter staff directory. I guess they got tired of getting negative feedback from people who know they’re full of shit. Fortunately, they left the actual directory online; you should bookmark it.

Nice try, Foskett.

Yeah, you edited the article from this

to this

but you forgot to change the graphic.

I just had to send Foskett one more email.

Nice try.

But you forgot to change the graphic.

Fortunately, I kept screen shots of everything in case the ATF should ask.

I expect that graphic will disappear from the AJC site in 3… 2… 1…

UPDATE, 2/8/2018: They finally realized they still had the “assault rifle” image loading. It’s now gone. Further, they’ve set the original URL…

http://investigations.blog.ajc.com/2018/02/06/home-diy-project-build-your-own-ar-15-semi-automatic-assault-rifle/

..to redirect to this one, so “assault rifle” no longer appears in the address bar.

https://www.myajc.com/blog/investigations/home-diy-project-build-your-own-untraceable/GP69yaLThpUXrLeCLYYxKN/

But no mention that they edited the original story for content.

Math for Dummies

Mathematics is a logical discipline which some gun people controlling victim disarmers find difficult to master. To aid them in understanding, I’m providing a few simplified examples of how math works in the real world.

1.
Number of firearms homicides in 1993: 17,075
Number of firearms homicides in 2015: 12,979

12,979 is 4,096 lower than 17,075

2.
Rate of firearms homicides per 100K in 1993 6.56
Rate of firearms homicides per 100K in 2015: 4.13

4.13 is 2.43 lower than 6.56

3.
Number of accidental firearms-related deaths in 1999: 824
Number of accidental firearms-related deaths in 2015: 489

489 is 335 lower than 824

4.
Rate of accidental firearms-related deaths per 100K in 1999: 0.29
Rate of accidental firearms-related deaths per 100K in 2015: 0.15

.15 is .14 lower than .29

5.
Number of counties in US: 3,007
Number of counties responsible for recent jump in firearms-related deaths: 150 (5%)

150 is 2857 less than 3,007

6.
Estimated number of firearms in US in 1993: 150,000,000 to 211,000,000 (very vague estimate based on production/sales estimates)
Estimated number of firearms in US in 2015: 265-750,000,000 (basically, no one knows at all)

750,000,000 is 539,000,000 more than 211,000,000

7.
Estimated percentage of non-murderous firarms owners: 99.9978%
Estimated percentage of estimated number of murderous firearms owners: 0.0022%

99.9978 is 99.9956 more than .0022

Those suffering the disability of mathematical competence might think this demonstrates a reduction in homicides and accidental deaths at the same time that the numbers of firearms are increasing.

As I’ve said, math is hard for gun people controlling victim disarmers. As a result, they tend to rely upon Common Core “math” principles. To aid pro-human/civil rights advocates in understanding of their opposition, I’m also providing examples of how those people reach conclusions which seem to have little resemblance to reality.

[UPDATE] School Shootings

So Shannon TWatts was mouthing off about school shootings again, after the LA middle school shooting. She claimed:

This is the 14th American school shooting in 2018

Someone replied, asking for a list of those shootings, And TWatts told her to Google “Everytown school shootings”. She couldn’t be bothered to provide a link.

So I searched it and found that “Everytown” list. It lists “school shootings” but doesn’t provide links. Per Everytown,

Consistent with expert advice and common sense, Everytown uses a straightforward, fair, and comprehensive definition for a school shooting: any time a firearm discharges a live round inside a school building or on a school campus or grounds, as documented by the press and, when necessary, confirmed through further inquiries with law enforcement or school officials.

I checked on the shootings they list.

Two suicides (one only coincidentally on school grounds), one negligent discharge by a cop, two shots from off campus that hit buildings with no injuries, two drive-bys from off campus with no injuries, one drive-by off campus with no injuries, one shot at 1AM at an “event venue” on an extended college campus, four under-age students shooting students, and one guy killed “near” a school.

So 29% of Everytown’s “school shootings” don’t even meet their own definition of “school shooting.” Some clearly had nothing to do with “school” other than happening on campus well after hours, typically by non-students entering the grounds. One was a freaking cop authorized to have that gun. They had to include a shooting that didn’t involve students, faculty, or school grounds; “near.” Of the shootings that met Everytown’s own definition, most shooters were breaking existing laws in even possessing firearms. Virtually all broke existing laws in bringing the gun on campus.

Real school shootings are a bad thing. They should be addressed, fixed, ended. But inflating the numbers with other incidents is panic-mongering, and shrouds and distorts the facts of real school shootings.

Added, 2/7/2018: They have a couple more! Let’s see what there is to see…

Maybe schools should be cop-free zones. That’s twice in a month.

Hmm kind of things

I ran across this story tonight, ‘I didn’t mean to’: Police reveal 12-year-old girl ACCIDENTALLY shot at classmates and injured five in LA middle school after dropping her backpack which was carrying a loaded gun Some of the bullet points in the article were

  • Police say the shooting at Salvador Castro Middle School in Los Angeles on Thursday morning was accidental

  • A 12-year-old girl was arrested and charged with negligent discharge of a firearm on school grounds

  • One of the girl’s classmates said she told him the gun was in her backpack and that it accidentally went off when she dropped the bag

  • Another classmate said the girl had said she thought it was a toy gun

  • Shooting left one teenager critically wounded and three other children injured

  • A 15-year-old male was shot in the temple and remains in intensive care, while a girl, 15, was shot in the wrist

  • Two other students, as well as a 30-year-old woman, were treated for non-gunshot wounds

A 12-year-old girl was arrested after gunfire erupted at Salvador Castro Middle School on Thursday morning.

Los Angeles police spokesman Josh Rubenstein says the girl has since been charged with negligent discharge of a firearm on school grounds.

The charge comes after one of the girl’s classmates, also 12, revealed he spoke to her moments after the gun went off and said she was sobbing and repeatedly saying: ‘I didn’t mean it.’

She told him the gun was in her backpack and that it accidentally went off when she dropped the bag.

Another classmate also said the girl didn’t mean to hurt anyone, saying she thought it was a toy gun.

The list of injured: A 15-year-old male who was shot in the temple,a girl, 15, suffered a gunshot wound to her wrist, an 11-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl were grazed and were treated and released from the hospital, and a 30 year old woman was also injured and treated in hospital.

This baffles me. Modern firearms are pretty reliable, and I understand it most modern firearms are unlikely to “go off” if dropped. I said most. I know I’ve certainly had a very stern talk with mine. Since people control advocates seem to feel guns have a mind of their own, I thought I’d cover all the bases and make sure mine realize that is unacceptable behavior. But back to my pondering.

The girl had the gun in her backpack. The story doesn’t say how she obtained it. Nor does it say why she had it in her backpack, or who she got it from. I’m actually not dogging the reporter on this, I just don’t think it was known. I am astonished she is being charged with negligent discharge and not the mountain of other crimes with which a normal concealed carrier would have been charged. We are talking about California #FutureVenezuela here. Or as my compatriot Bear calls it, “Occupied territory”.

But if she A) dropped the backpack B) the gun just went off. How many times did it go off that so many were wounded off of one cartridge? It’s making me think of the JFK assassination “magic bullet”. I’m not saying it couldn’t have happened that way, crowded hall and all, but, still.

The whole thing is just sad. And without knowing any other background the one thing that is front in my mind is that if firearms education were allowed in schools perhaps this would never happen as the girl, who’s life is bound to be a mess now if it wasn’t before, would have known the difference between a toy gun and a real one. She would have known safe gun handling practices if she had stumbled upon one, and she sure as heck would have known you don’t play with them.

But no, California would never allow firearms education in schools, after all, it’s for the children.

But had this been a real school shooting, with gun fire “erupting” as the column stated I’m quite sure the toll would have been far higher. After all, schools are Gun-free zones, to keep everyone “safe”. That’s “for the children” too.

Vegas Warrants: More questions than answers

Redacted warrants and affidavits for the Mandalay Bay shooting have been published. Sadly, the data dump is only from local Vegas LE. It does not include federal investigation information. That’s important because federal agents would be investigating violations of federal law like the reported fully-automatic weapon(s) that fell out of the official narrative once victim-disarming politicians decided bump-fire was a good target for new gun people control laws. I still want to see ballistics reports that show what weapons were used, and what those weapons were.

Part 1
Part 2

Multiple warrants appear to use identical copy/pasted portions of the affidavits. This appears in quite a few:

Upon breaching the door, officers entered and located a deceased male suspect with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
[…]
Despite this suspect being neutralized, several other callers at various locations along The Strip continued to report active shooters inside of hotels and sightings of people with firearms.

Due to the mass casualty event that was still very dynamic and multiple other callers reporting other ongoing incidents, it appeared there may be several other suspects involved.

He’s dead, but someone else is still shooting? And note: they found the dead body.

Um… Maybe not.
SW-17-971C&D, October 2, 2017, Telephonic Search Warrant, Sgt. Jerry MacDonald

SWAT officers arrived on the 32nd floor and pinpointed the shooter’s location to be in room 32-135. As SWAT officers breached room 135, they observed Stephen Paddock place a gun to his head and fire one round. (emphasis added-cb)

A local Fox5 report leaves open the possibilities that MacDonald misspoke, although that sounds like an oddly specific way of misstating that they found a dead body. “Sorry; I accidentally said they witnessed the dead guy put a gun to his head and kill himself.”

By Wednesday afternoon, after I drafted the above paragraph, MacDonald pretty much said just that:

“He absolutely killed himself before anyone got into the room,” Sgt. Jerry MacDonald told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
[…]
“That night was crazy. You get information coming in. It’s fluid, and none of it is confirmed,” he said. “And that’s par for the course when you’re doing telephonic search warrants. You base those search warrants based on what you believed up to that point.”

I could see telling the judge, “Yeah, officers saw him shoot himself” or “Subject killed himself on entry.” But specifically, “As SWAT officers breached room 135, they observed Stephen Paddock place a gun to his head and fire one round.”?

Two other affidavits put it this way:

Tactical entry was made into the room in order to preserve life under exigent circumstances and law enforcement located a deceased male with a gunshot wound.

and

Tactical entry was made into the room in order to preserve life under exigent circumstances and law enforcement located a deceased male with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

“Apparent.” In light of the photo (warning: graphic) showing expended brass on top of the seemingly coagulated blood, we’re left with more questions: If he died on entry, how did brass end up on top of the blood, if the shooting in the suite had stopped an hour before? If he died earlier, and they found the body, how did brass end up on top of the blood?

There are other little oddities in the warrant info. Why did he need two “personal massagers”? Different types, for different applications? Two people? The fact that he had his passport with him might be significant or not. While in the US, most folks I know leave their passport secured at home. But reports indicate the Mandalay bay shooter was enough of a world traveler that he might have kept his in a go bag out of convenience.

What’s up with the vase and flowers?

Where did the missing hard drive go?

Then there’s the other redacted (except for the one instance a clerk initially missed) “person of interest,” which law enforcement claimed as a reason not to unseal the warrants, as revealing him would compromise the investigation. Only, due to said clerical error, we learn that Douglas Haig apparently did nothing but sell a box of a tracers at an Arizona gun show. Is he somehow significant, or was he a convenient excuse to keep the records sealed, hiding the oddities we’ve just seen?

Two entrees, two pair of gloves, two rooms, two shooting postitions, two personal massagers, ballistics calculations and scoped rifle and spotting scope, other rifles with no sights and bump-fire stocks…

One shooter.

TacticalPay Radio: a new pro-RKBA podcast

For those who like listening to their RKBA news while multitasking,  there’s a new podcast in town: TacticalPay Radio.

I was asked to listen to one of their podcasts to see what I thought. I  did a little prep: looking up the episode’s guest, for instance. Then I clicked play.

The podcast is hosted by Brett Grayson, a Houston history teacher. I listened to Episode 3, which featured Sam Paredes, Executive Director of Gun Owners of California, and immediately learned that GOC is the country’s oldest firearms right Political Action Committee, predating the NRA’s ILA.

Amusing point (to me, anyway): In my prep notes, I had referred to GOC as waging guerrilla warfare for rights in “Occupied California.” I’ll be darned if Sam Paredes didn’t actually refer to California as “occupied territory,” and folks moving to Cal as leaving “free America.”

GMTA.

The show hit upon several points. A fair bit of time was spent on advice for dealing with RKBA debates and reporters (sound bites not easily “sliced and diced,” make it fun, educate yourself first, and tailor the message to the audience. Listen to the show for more.

And taking this episode as an indicator, you’ll probably want to listen to more. How else will you learn about Sam Paredes’ experience with zip guns?

TacticalPay Radio is currently available through Apple iTunes, and approvals for Google Play and Spotify are in process. The show is brought to us by Texas-based Tactical Payments, a credit card processing solution provider for the “for the firearms, ammunition and accessories industries.”

Do #WeRemember?

Holocaust memorial day was 27th January 2018. There were a lot of hashtags on Twitter, and I saw some good, thoughtful FaceBook posts. The hashtags #WeRemember #NeverAgain #Holocaust and #HolocaustMemorial were almost everywhere, but that could just be the people and groups I tend to follow.

But I think if we are really to honor the six million Jews and five million other souls lost in the Holocaust it should impact how we live today, the choices we make to an extent. If we look at it as to an extent they live on through us, I believe it applies. So you won’t be surprised I have a few random thoughts here.

While we talk about remember the Holocaust, we have this St. Peters Business Removes Star Patch, Says It’s ‘No Longer Relevant’ Under Trump now their yellow star said “Gun Owner”, not Jew. But while President Trump doesn’t hate us like Obama and about every other Demoncrat, no matter what they say, too many in Germany thought they would never have anything to worry about, they would never have thought there would be a day they would be forced to wear a yellow star. Side note, if you are horrified that those are no longer available, we can help you out with that. http://zelmanpartisans.com/?page_id=972

What else gets forgotten, or there are attempts to revise the past? Poland for one. For those unaware, there has been a bit of a “kerfluffle” of late regarding Poland’s participation in the atrocities. Namely, death camps. Some Polish politicians are maintaining there were never any Polish death camps. People had their accounts turned into Twitter for writing Polish death camps. Why would anyone do such a thing? Because Poland

It is arrogant and blatantly false – and they know perfectly well that they are imposing lies. It is really too much, Poland, telling us what to call your far too many accomplices to the annihilation of Jewish people during WWII, and your threatening everyone, even beyond the Polish borders, with fines and up to three years’ imprisonment.

And

My students are always hugely surprised at one point, every year – it is when I tell them of the vile anti-Semitism in Poland which swept the country in the late1960s and thereafter.

“How come? – they ask. – In Poland, after the war, just 10% of the Jewish population was left alive, 38.000 people out of 3.47 million before the war. After the war, another 160 000 Polish Jews were returned to Poland from the territory of the USSR, and 20-40 000 Jews came there from Germany. Three quarters of those people moved to Israel immediately in the period between 1945 and 1948 precisely because of the outburst of brutal anti-Jewish Polish violence in Poland.

There were approximately 40 000 Jews left in Poland from 1950s onward, most of whom concealed their Jewish origin, a phenomenon widely known to everyone in Poland. And then in 1968, new anti-Jewish hysteria burst out – so mightily, so widely spread and so violent that without any Nazis around, more than 90% of those poor 40.000 had to flee their homes and their country. How is it humanly possible? “ my students ask me repeatedly. And I reply: “Humanly it is impossible. But inhumanly it is and was.”

And I would point out also today in France, the UK and Germany it can be necessary to hide your identity. The whole article is well worth reading at Polish complicity in distorting the truth

If you are unsure what this is all about, Poland’s President Andrzej Duda Polish President says country didn’t take part in Holocaust as well as the persecution after.

His comments came amid an uproar over a bill approved by the Polish parliament that would outlaw public statements assigning to “the Polish nation” responsibility for crimes committed by Nazi Germany during its World War II occupation of Poland.

Violations of the proposed law would be punishable by fines or prison terms of up to three years.

Whitewashing the wall of history will not change it. But it does make it easier to perpetuate again. As I’ve written before, there are schools in California teaching it didn’t happen. Or having students do homework assignments using only web sites the teachers allow to reach “their own conclusions” on whether or not it happened.

Are there already circumstances in motion that could be harbingers? I’m sure the Jews in Poland didn’t expect a burst of anti-Semitic activity following WWII, in the 50s and 60s. But it happened.

Of course CNN #FakeNews weighed in on it, CNN Hack Ana Navarro Compares McCabe’s ‘Removal’ From FBI to Holocaust

Well, there is this The hypocrisy of World Holocaust Memorial Day again, this is a very good column.

The anti-Semitism practiced by the Palestinian leadership of Mahmoud Abbas, a partner of Western countries, is now blatant. In Egypt, Abbas just said that European Jews during the Shoah chose to suffer “massacres” rather than emigrate to Palestine (no official European declaration condemned him).

A few days ago, in Brussels, Yuli Edelstein, president of the Knesset, condemned the hypocrisy of those who honor the memory but accuse Israel of “war crimes”, dialogue with Hamas and do not see the Jews who hide the star of David.

The leftist intelligentsia is the master of this clever anti-Semitism. In commemorating the Holocaust, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, a “friend” of Hamas and Hezbollah, “forgot” to mention the Jews.

One of the other points raised in it, is the threat Iran represents, and why. You know, the Iran for whom Obama lifted the sanctions? And pushed the nuclear deal signed by only Demoncrats, those strong “supporters” of Israel, the one Jewish state? Obama, the First Jewish President. I wouldn’t get too excited about that, he was also

If he really loves the Jewish people he sure has a funny way of showing love to his “brethren”. His former secretary of state, John Kerry #KetchupHeiress has been going around telling Abu Mazen to ignore President Trump, he’ll be gone in a year, urging him to be strong in his goals. You know, like denying the Holocaust and killing Israeli Jews and visiting Americans #TaylorForce. Abu Mazen has his panties in a twist that President Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol and is refusing to hand over American dollars that will be used to pay Arab killers and their families. For example the ones that recently killed Rabbi Raziel Shevah, father of six and paramedic volunteer. Abu Mazan was one of those that went to the family of the killer to pay a condolence call.

THIS is Jewish identity barry, not your terrorist worshiping appeasement.

 

And so the Falestinians are pitching a hissy fit, again. President Trump is not backing down. Report: Trump Prepared to Kick Palestinians Out of Washington Good. I’ll get you the cowboy boots to do it with.

America, the sane part, sees them for what they are. But the Falestinians aren’t the only internal threat that Israelis face. Americans either for that matter. There are the infiltrators, my last column was on that. But some have compared the Holocaust survivors fleeing to Israel, to the infiltrators. They are not the same. And Israel is not treating the same as the British sinking boats of Jews coming to Israel. Yeah, the British, you know, like Jeremy Corbyn. Rabbi Ariel points out that what Israel is offering them, money and a ticket out is a good deal and does not conflict with the Torah. Just by the by, some of the Kibbutzim are offering to hide the infiltrators. Sound familiar? The Rabbi says, “you want them? Come and get them, but you are responsible for them”.

Dr. Michael Ben-Ari and Baruch Marzel have a similar approach, I would actually support this in the U.S. perhaps.

Dr. Michael Ben-Ari and Baruch Marzel arrived in southern Tel Aviv today and distributed leaflets to infiltrators in Tigrinya, the language spoken by natives of Eritrea and parts of Ethiopia.

The leaflets contain addresses and phone numbers of left-wing activists and Meretz MKs who have backed the demand by some infiltrators to be given legal status in Israel. Marzel and Ben-Ari encouraged infiltrators to avail themselves of the leftist activists’ “hospitality” personally by providing the activists’ personal contact information in mock invitations.

The bottom line is this, as my much admired Jack Engelhard points out in his column Immigration hustle

Liberals are counting on illegals to vote Democrat, which means millions of votes and never again will a Republican get into the White House, not even as a guest. Plus, Congress, both houses, will be filled by people who look and sound like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin; according to the plan Liberals have mapped out for themselves.

And

The larger the number, the larger the anti-Semitism.

Wish I could use the Academic-Speak in which these deeply-funded STUDIES arrive, but being from the Hemingway, James M. Cain, Charles Bukowski school of writing, I don’t speak or write that language. But the “studies show” that countries that bring them in suffer from additional anti-Semitism, above the ho-hum Jew-hatred already in place.

In places such as Germany…and Sweden…and France…and England…and Belgium…and, well, to get back to Germany, six million Muslims (mostly men without women) got there since Merkel took over the country and the continent. “Studies show” that since then, anti-Semitism has spiked off-the-charts, and Jews foolish enough to stay there – or anywhere in Europe – desist from identifying themselves as Jews.

Everywhere in Western Europe it’s pretty much the same – but to know this we need Studies, Surveys, Statistics?

It’s a living, I guess, for all those who live in Think Tanks.

I could have told you that for free.

Not so easy these days. Israeli Strong

 

 

 

 

 

So while we are hashtagging #WeRemember, let’s look at the things that set up circumstances for a repeat performance.

Because #NeverAgain is far more my mindset, and yes, I know they are a parody account. But that doesn’t mean the mindset doesn’t exist, with them, with me. With you?

NRA Hypocrisy Warning

Now where did I see this predicted?

Hawaii: More Anti-Gun Bills Introduced
As previously reported last week, Senate Bill 2046 was introduced, aimed at criminalizing certain firearm parts, accessories and modifications. The trend continued this week as more anti-gun legislation was filed prior to the close of the bill introduction deadline. Please contact committee members and urge them to oppose these bills! Click the “Take Action” button below to contact committee members.

What did the purveyors of fearmongering fundraising expect when they endorsed bump-fire regulat… Oh. Yeah. More opportunities for fundraising to fight what they endorsed.
