Feeling Cross

I’ve been reading a really good book lately. The Case for Judaism, it’s not a very large book and is quite readable. It covers several different topics, but the one that I’m thinking of right now is on laws, government, voting and freedom. How perspectives on what is right and what is wrong can change with time. America is a country founded on Judeo-Christian principles which came from the Torah given on Mt. Sinai, we just celebrated Chag Shavuot, the holiday that celebrates the giving on the Torah.

One topic in the book is about the role of Torah and another on Defining Morality. It points out that Torah, is a teaching book, not a history book. Torah is spelled תורה and teacher is spelled מורה thus they share the same root Torah and Morah or Moray depending on if its a female or male teacher. It’s laws for a society to have a decent civilization that can lead to peace, prosperity and fairness. The Torah hasn’t changed since it was given. My understanding may change as I learn more and study, but Torah doesn’t. G-d’s word stands solid.

Compare that to man’s laws. If we go only by those, in the section of Defining Morality, we can see that those change depending on who is ruling, or in charge at the time. What is evil or good, what is acceptable or unacceptable varies. Man (and woman) change their mind from time to time, chocolate bar or Hershey’s kisses? These are variable choices. While the author doesn’t get into the debate of abortion right or wrong, moral or immoral, he uses it to point out that sixty years ago it was considered immoral and wrong. Now it is considered wrong to take away a woman’s right to choose. A few thousand years ago throwing people to lions to be eaten alive in front of Roman crowds was a day of wholesome fun for the whole family, kids and all. Today unless we are talking about progressives and the media treating conservatives in such a manner, that sort of thing is frowned upon. The author suggests that man’s flip-flopping moral code is the result of man deciding what he wants and what is best for himself at that time. G-d’s law, is not changeable.

Do not kill.

Around 20th April this year, a 49 year old Grandmother, Anji Rhys, used a crossbow to defend her family. She’s being called Grandbo. Her hobby is shooting her crossbow in her garden. She feels it to be relaxing, and since Britain is basically one big gun-free (except for the criminals) zone, she liked the idea of having something for self-defense. A pack of machete wielding yobs kicked in their door and came at her and another resident demanding their stash of weed. I guess they thought you could explain to them they were at the wrong “joint”. Yeah, sorry. Since they are unable to have a gun to defend themselves, Anji originally grabbed the crossbow to keep them from getting and deploying the quarrel or bolt. She ended up discharging the 6 inch quarrel into one of the machete wielding intruders. But, I suppose you could hear it straight from her.

I guess you could say she used a quarrel to settle the quarrel. I know, that’s twice.

I found a couple of her statements to be rather frightening.

‘A crossbow is a one shot thing and then it’s useless. After that I tried to throw it through the window to raise an alarm but it got caught in the curtains like a goalie net.

Since there were 3 others, that would be pretty disconcerting for me. One shot and done? Yesh. The other kind of had me scratching my head.

‘I think all of us should have something you can strike back with. Not necessarily a weapon. I think the best defence is CCTV.

Huh? Say what? Do you….throw it at them??

The police do not yet have them in custody but they did let Anji keep her crossbow and told her well done, her family is all okay and her 82 year old Mom slept through it. This was around 20th April.

And…on the 14th of May this year. Deadly crossbows sold on High Street without need for a licence or background checks. Gasp, sharp inhaling through the teeth, with the slow whistling exhale.

DEADLY assault rifle-style crossbows are available on high streets and online without any need for a licence or background checks. Today the Daily Express launches a crusade calling on the Government to crack down on the sale of the potentially lethal weapons which can be bought without having to give details of identity or a reason for their use.

We were able to visit a shop yards from one of Britain’s busiest city centre high streets and buy a high-velocity 175lb Panther crossbow which boasts the promise “Built for power”.

The terrifying weapon, bought in Leeds, is capable of hitting a target with its aluminium-pointed bolts at 500 yards.

Like many other brands it comes with a telescopic sight to make aiming easier and is designed to be as straightforward as possible to shoot.

Experts say they are more powerful than some air rifles that have to be licensed.

Ok, now this is my shocked face.

MPs have backed the Daily Express campaign and urged the Government to ban the deadly “sporting devices” saying there was “no reason” for them to be on sale to the general public.

Last week Rachael Maskell, 45, MP for York Central, penned a letter to the new home secretary Sajid Javid urging tough rules be introduced to stop their easy availability.

They were astonished, astonished I say to find that you could buy smaller versions of them as…..wait for it, toys. History of the crossbow.

Man’s laws and opinions. At one time the crossbow was a perfectly respectable device and part of Britain’s history. The media and their government can’t get rid of that fast enough. I wonder if the Sheriff of Nottingham is still in charge?

Less than a month after a woman uses a crossbow to defend 4 innocent lives from 4 machete wielding yobs the media and apparently the “rulers” of the subjects are incensed that people have access to this deadly device. Apparently the media and some Members of Parliament have more concern and mercy for the thugs than innocent people just sitting home watching their tellys.

From Chabad,

In light of the above, it is surprising to find the following law in the Torah (derived from Deuteronomy 22:26): Habah l’hargecha hashkem l’hargo — “If someone is coming to kill you, rise against him and kill him first.” (This law applies equally to someone coming to kill someone else — you’re obligated to kill the murderer in order to save his intended victim.)

This law seems to contradict the principle of life’s infinite value. If no life can be deemed less valuable that any other, what makes the victim’s life more valuable than the murderer’s life? Furthermore, this rule applies to anyone who is “coming to kill you” — he hasn’t even done anything yet! Maybe he won’t succeed? Maybe he’ll change his mind? Nor does the law say anything about trying to run away. It says: If someone is coming to kill you, rise against him and kill him first.

The same Torah that tells us that G‑d placed a spark of Himself in every human being, thereby bestowing upon his or her physical existence a G‑dly, infinite worth — that same Torah also tells us that G‑d has granted free choice to every person. Including the choice — and the power — to corrupt his or her G‑d-given vitality and turn it against itself, using it to destroy life. A person can choose to turn himself into a murderer — someone who is prepared to destroy life in order to achieve his aims. In which case he is no longer a life, but an anti-life.

To kill an anti-life is not a life-destroying act, it is a life-preserving act. It is not a violation of the commandment “Do not kill,” but its affirmation. Without the law, “If someone is coming to kill you, rise against him and kill him first,” the principle of life’s infinite value is nothing more than an empty slogan, a mere idea.

Judaism is not an idea. It is a way of life — G‑d’s ideas made real.

Emphasis mine. For some reason, much of the media and elected officials seem far more concerned with the lives and well being of the criminals than those of the law-abiding. This is not just a British phenomena either.

Media love for MS-13 and Hamass

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I believe I will go with Torah on this.

Political Theater and Popcorn

There is quite a lot going on in Israel right now. I’ve got a couple things to cover for you. One, you may or not have heard much about the Falestinian “Great Return March”.

Now this is all kinds of theater. The goal is to put a bunch of Falestinian civilians in front and they are suppose to break down the security fence and storm into Israel where several communities lie only moments away.

It’s a topic that has come up quite a bit on some of the news feeds I get. As I’ve pointed out about this great march of “Return”, it was the Arab leaders that told them to leave, not the Israelis. And so Hamass is doing one of their fav things, citizens as cannon fodder, or human shields. Grab some popcorn.

You will see some great performances. Probably good enough to rival Hollywood, that’s why it’s called Pallywood, where the ambulances take the rioters or terrorists to where ever they need/want to go. Haven’t heard of Pallywood? Well, first you need good make up artists

then a compelling story

It’s a MIRACLE! The feel good movie of the half minute.

If you are unfortunate enough to be in a place forcing you to watch cnn or mslsd or the like, you’ve no doubt heard about the innocent Falestinian “journalist” that was shot by the big bad Israelis.

Um, no. A report from The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center reveals….he was a TERRORIST! MAN, I did not see that plot twist coming! What’s more? Eighty percent of the Falestinians killed have been TERRORISTS! It’s like a Twilight Zone thing or something. Well, not everyone is fooled, Abu Mazen accused Hamass of “only selling illusions, trading in suffering and blood.” Huh, you’d think if Abu Mazen knew those rocket scientist at cnn or mslsd #fakenews would figure it out. It’s weird, it’s like they want to be fooled. I wonder if there is a “Invasion of the Talking Head Snatchers” movie or something? “Stepford Talking Heads”? But their rocket scientists, they’ll tell you how smart they are.

People think that most Israelis are armed and can defend themselves. Nope, biggest nope ever. You see a lot of guns on the street because of the military and those in the military but off duty. One article I recently read was talking about the strict gun control in Israel. How they are “trained”, can’t buy some of the more “deadly” guns available at Walmart, can only buy so much ammo per year. Bet that cuts into practice for proficiency. You have to show a “need” to have a gun. Luckily for Israel the illusion exists there could be a gun under every blade of grass. And perhaps when Moshe Feiglin is Prime Minister it will be. But I have to wonder, if those pieceful Falestinians knew they were going to be met by a bunch of armed pissed off Kibbutzniks and citizens shouldering some of those “more deadly weapons in Walmart” just how eager they would be to break that security fence even if they did overrun and evade the IDF.

But back to speaking of rocket scientists.

Perhaps you’ve heard of a few missiles floating around? Israel hits 50 Iranian targets in Syria after Al Qods fires 20 missiles at IDF Golan positions

And Iran is a problem, we all knew it. Well, almost all of us knew it.

Except Ganja for brains barry.

And then, The Mossad did their “thing”. The got out a lot of documents, about 11,000 of them, from Tehran on Project Ahmed, the Iranian nuclear program which Bibi revealed to the world in a broadcast saying basically, Iran lied.

WOWZA, I would think that would be shocking! But, to the world “leaders” naw, nothing to see here folks, move along. EU Foreign Policy Chief Frederica Mogherini said so, she said Iran complied. Frederica and barry really need to quit the hearty partying and listen to their opponents. Except barry sent them lots and lots of money, so maybe they aren’t opponents. Because Iran admitted they lied as well as forbidding the inspection of certain areas.

The article referred to comments made by Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran’s Atomic Agency, who said during an interview with IRINN TV in Iran on August 22 that his country can return to its pre-deal enrichment level in only five days, indicating Iran has breached the JCPOA and stockpiled prohibited nuclear components.

Earlier this month, the Middle East Media Research Institute published a full translation of Salehi’s comments, showing that the situation is worse than originally estimated by experts likeas former International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors David Albright and Olli Heinonen.

This is the tone in which cnn #FakeNews covered the revelations,

Russia stood by the current deal, rejecting any push to update or change the JCPOA. France, Germany, and the United Kingdom said Netanyahu’s presentation was exactly a case for keeping the deal in place, because it provided for inspection and monitoring of Iran’s nuclear program and, if needed, sanctions.

And what about one of the central accusations of Netanyahu’s presentation, that Iran lied? It was a talking point he hit over and over, making for easy sound bites and compelling television.

Well, that didn’t surprise anyone either.

“Everybody knew that they lied. There’s nothing new about that,” Lewis said flatly.

“The Iranians had a nuclear weapons program. We knew this,” agreed Fitzpatrick.

Lewis added: “We already knew the outlines of the [Iranian nuclear] program in great detail, and all this did was color it in, sometimes in pornographic detail.”

Orwellian. They lied, so we need the agreement so they won’t lie. Huh, wow. Last year even Germany knew. German Security Officials Reveal Iran Still Working to Become Nuclear Power. Seems most of the world “leaders” know they are being lied to and a fine with it. They are annoyed President Trump is pulling out of it, and reinstating sanctions meaning no more money out of barry’s “stash”. Moshe Feiglin of Zehut has a pretty brutal assessment of it. But he is right, The Israelis have to decide if they want to win.

Uninstalling obama

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The traitor John Kerry, the #KetchupHeiress is so desperate to salvage his and barry’s legacy he is going behind everyone’s back and engaging in shadow diplomacy. Why isn’t cnn and msnbc #FakeNews covering this like they did Michael Flynn?

Oh goodie, John Kerry is here, we don’t need to worry.

Totally NOT a Bomb

 

 

 

 

 

I read a magazine article that pointed out the hypocrisy of Demoncrats demanding more gun control to keep their kids safe, while pushing for the Iranian nuclear deal which endangered Israeli children. Well, Demoncrats are good at that sort of hypocrisy.

But no worries, the UN will be there to keep things calm. U.N. To World: You Have No Human Right to Self-Defense. Thwarted by the demise of its global gun ban treaty, the United Nations declares the human right of self-defense null and void

Uh oh.

The “Peace keepers” flee

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oy Ve Vay.

I would say the Mossad uncovered a lot more than just the proof that the Iranians were lying about their nuclear program. I would say they uncovered the total apathy that the European leaders have to the one Jewish state being annihilated. Do you wonder how the Mossad pulled that one off?

Anything to declare?

Lisdoonvarna vs The European Union

Yes, I am aware St. Patrick’s Day was the 17th, but perhaps we can spare a moment to remember the town of Lisdoonvarna. A town that most likely is not going to be remembered as it is. Irish singer Christy Moore wrote a lovely song about it. I always like Christy Moore’s music, plus it has pretty pictures.

So to set this up nicely, I’ll give you a bit of background. Ireland, like Israel in her past has had to fight for their culture. There is this column Dreidels & Hedgerows, but just a brief bit of background on the Irish war of Independence. First we will look at the Easter uprising.

Easter Rising

The Easter Rising, also known as the Easter Rebellion, was an armed insurrection in Ireland during Easter Week, 24 April 1916. The Rising was launched by Irish republicans to end British rule in Ireland and establish an independent Irish Republic while the United Kingdom was heavily engaged in the First World War. It was the most significant uprising in Ireland since the rebellion of 1798, and the first armed action of the Irish revolutionary period.

Then there was the theft of 160 pounds of gelignite and detonators at Soloheadbeg.

The war began with an unauthorized ambush by IRA volunteers Dan Breen and Seán Treacy at Soloheadbeg in 1919 and officially ended with a truce agreed in July 1921.

This occurred after Ireland had voted for Independence from Britain

In the Irish general election of December 1918, the Irish republican party Sinn Féin won a landslide victory, gaining 73 out of 105 seats (25 of these unopposed) in the British Parliament. However, in its election manifesto, the party had vowed to set up a separate government in Ireland rather than sit in the British Parliament. At a meeting in Dublin on 21 January 1919, Sinn Féin established an independent parliament called Dáil Éireann and declared independence from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.

25 March 1920: The Black and Tans arrive in Ireland.

The Black and Tans were not subject to strict discipline in their first months and, as a result, their deaths at the hands of the IRA in 1920 were often repaid with arbitrary reprisals against the civilian population.

They were really quite appalling. I’m sure Winston Churchill was pleased since they were his idea.

Order #11 by George Caleb Bingham

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry, my error, that’s from the American Civil war and Abraham Lincoln’s Order #11  which was reprisals against innocent civilians.

Then came 21 November 1920 – Bloody Sunday:

Morning: The IRA attacked eight addresses in central and south-central Dublin city, killing eleven men and wounding five, one of them fatally. The targets were British intelligence agents (mostly part of the “Cairo Gang“), although not all of those shot were, in fact, intelligence agents. A gun battle erupted between IRA gunmen and auxiliaries who stumbled across the scene of one assassination: two auxiliaries were killed, and one IRA man, Frank Teeling, was captured in the shootout but extricated somehow by the IRA later that day.

Afternoon: Police, Auxiliaries, and soldiers raided Croke Park during a Gaelic football match between Dublin and Tipperary in response to the IRA shootings that morning. For some unknown reason, police opened fire on the crowd. Fourteen spectators were killed. That evening, Dublin Castle claimed that the raiding party came under fire from rebel gunmen; this claim was contradicted by the press, and, later, by the findings of military courts of inquiry, which were suppressed by the Government. The shootings were generally considered to be a reprisal.

Evening: Two IRA operatives (Dick McKee and Peadar Clancy) who had helped compile the intelligence used in assassinating most of “the Cairo gang”, along with Conor Clune (a relative of Patrick Clune, Bishop of Perth, Australia), who had been arrested with them, were “shot while trying to escape” in Dublin Castle.

Huh, who’d a thunk it. A government firing on unarmed bunch of civilians as a football/soccer match then blaming it on someone else. Or on their farms, just going about their lives and trying to survive the war taking place all around them.

But as you go through incident after incident in the time line you will find things like this,

19 March 1919: IRA volunteers raid Collinstown airfield (now Dublin Airport) outside Dublin.[4] They captured 75 rifles and 4,000 rounds of ammunition. (Henderson says the raid occurred on 20 March and that 6,000 rounds of ammunition were captured.)

Always, the on-going attempt to gain weapons to remove the British from the historically Irish land of Ireland. Yeah, kind of like trying to remove the British from the historically Jewish land of Israel. Apparently the British don’t learn so quick.

Both sides agreed to a ceasefire (or ‘truce’) on 11 July 1921. In May, Ireland was partitioned under British law by the Government of Ireland Act, which created Northern Ireland. The post-ceasefire talks led to the signing of the Oslo Accords Anglo-Irish Treaty on 6 December 1921.

This resulted in the Irish Civil war, the result being “occupied” Ireland in the North, or Ulster and the Free Irish Republic in the South. Funny how we never hear the UN refer to it that way isn’t it?

So from all this, one would think that the Irish would know how to use a gun, would know what a gun can do, and what it can be used for. If not, why all those attempts to attack to gain weapons, well, and gelignite. That’s always handy. One would think they might have learned disarmed citizens are at the mercy of whatever Black and Tans the government allows in the land to wreck havoc on innocent citizens wouldn’t you?

ANNNNDDD, you would be wrong.

Which brings me to Lisdoonvarna. Just before St. Patrick’s day I read about a little town in Ireland called Lisdoonvarna that is about to be in a heap-o-trouble.

It seems little Lisdoonvarna, population of around 300 most of the time, is having 115 asylum seekers dumped on them. These are not refugees, which Ireland is required by the EU to take in a certain amount from countries that are in some sort of war condition. These are people from somewhere that have showed up and said they are seeking political asylum. The government Irish taxpayers will house and feed them indefinitely. And they children they will have. The Irish government is of the opinion they will adapt to the Irish culture and soon fit in and be a part of Ireland and life there. One too many Guinness stouts.

So the government decided to dump 115 of them on little Lisdoonvarna. They are going to be housed in the King Thomond Hotel, owned by Marcus White. Now this is interesting. Marcus White had said if the town didn’t want him to turn his hotel into a resident center and voted against it, he would honor the vote.

He lied.

The town voted against it by 93%. But Slimeball White had already signed the agreement. It was all conducted behind closed doors. He stands to make a pretty penny while betraying the small rural community. The town says they are not being told anything about who these people are, where they came from and what religion they are.

This is a short clip of a resident telling how this all went down, and it includes audio of Mr. White telling his lies.

I wonder why some of their concerns  with helping these poor people just seeking a better life?

Child Sex Crimes Soar by 30 Per Cent in Sadiq Khan’s London as Public Anger Over Grooming Gangs Grows

‘Despicable’: Police Memo Said Telford Girls ‘Consented’ to Sex Abuse with Groomers

FYI: grooming doesn’t refer to fixing their hair or painting their nails.

An 18-month probe by journalists, published last weekend, found that 1,000 girls could have been targeted over 40 years by as many as 70 groomers. They were allegedly drugged, raped, and trafficked, and five deaths have been linked to the abuse.

Some of the victims were just 11 years old, and one is known to have given birth at just 14. Speaking to The Mirror, specialist child abuse lawyer Dino Nocivelli, said: “This is victim blaming at its worst. The authorities just don’t seem to get it. Children cannot agree to sex.

In Telford, Britain’s latest child slave/rape/prostitution scandal of young white girls perpetrated by MUSLIM men.

Not wanting to be called “racists,” British police in Telford failed to act as more than 1,000 young girls over a 40 year period were continuously raped, pimped out for sale to hundreds of men, and even killed by Asian Muslim (mostly Pakistani) paedophiles in what could be the worst-ever child slave/sex scandal in Britain since the Rotherham Muslim kidnapping, rape, and prostitution scandal of 1,400 young white girls broke a few years ago.

Which brings me back to Lisdoonvarna.

IRELAND SUICIDE WATCH: Tiny town forced to take in hundreds of Muslim invaders out of fear of being called “racist” (even though Islam is not a race).

They’re afraid of being called racist, and the guy that owns the hotel group in Lisdoonvarna, which used to get a lot of tourist trade in the summer and for the huge matchmaking festival in September betrayed them.

You know what? I hope it turns out EVERY BIT as well for Marcus White as it has for this other landlord in Ireland who took in “asylum seekers”.

Amazing machete, eh?

After nearly destroying the inside of the house, provided free of charge for these ungrateful African Muslim freeloaders posing as asylum seekers, police refused to arrest the trouble-makers, and forced the landlord to give them back their keys.

Mr. White, I’m hoping your luck is, at the most, this good. Because what do you think is going to happen to the other innocent merchants in town? What kind of tourist trade do you think your town will have after a couple of years? Actually, I’ll be curious to see if your hotel is still standing. Hope not.

Author and resident of Lisdoonvarna Michael Walsh talks about being on a plane with a woman about 10 years ago when they were talking about signing the EU agreement. She said she was afraid they were losing country. He told her they lost it as soon as they signed the agreement, it was gone.

I was looking up gun control laws in Ireland I find things like this:

Ireland has some of the least permissive firearm legislation in Europe. In order to possess a limited range of hunting and sport-shooting firearms,1 gun owners must renew their firearm certificates every three years

The Firearms Act, 1925 states that a legal licence is required by law to own or possess a firearm in the Irish Republic. Failure to adhere to the law may result in a monetary fines or imprisonment and can result in firearms being seized by An Gárda Síochána. The Firearms Act, 1925 also lists a number of groups which are prohibited from legally owning a firearm, these include those suffering from mental health issues, those under the age of fifteen years and those who are under the supervision of the police

Gun crime is rising steadily in Ireland as a result of the illicit drugs trade; this has resulted in extensive tightening of licensing legislation during the last decade over the protests of the shooting sports organisations.

Huh, that’s right after the War for Independence isn’t it? Strict gun control, yet, it doesn’t seem to be working? Crime is rising? Huh.

And then I found this. I think I found part of the problem.

The laws are tight but that’s as it should be.

Ireland, oh Ireland, you have learned nothing. You were in slavery to England, and stole and made weapons to fight for your freedom. You gained it for most of the country, except those who chose to stay under England’s thumb. You know what the Black and Tans did to a disarmed populace. And all this not even a hundred years ago. You are now under the thumb of the EU and have no say in your future, you don’t represent your populace, you are merely a pawn of the EU in whatever agenda they chose to force on your people. You know all this and now you have invited worse than the Black and Tans in and set them loose on a disarmed populace. And the disarmed populace thinks that it should be that way.

I’m not giving good odds on this one. I’m fearing the day when the Bagpipes will be outlawed because they are “offensive” to the asylum seekers.

Dea-Éire?

Goodbye Ireland?

Perhaps the snakes were the easy part.

Feelin’ Triggered

It seems that recently Fredericka Whitfield, a cnn #FakeNews anchor had a segment talking about the school shooting in Florida. The one where the FIB ignored tips and the police never followed through on the myriad of calls they had on Bucket O-Chum. So guess who they had on as a SENIOR analyst? Yep, an FIB dude. Some guy named Tom Fuentes. Tom is everything cnn #FakeNews would want in a senior analyst and everything we would expect in a cnn analyst. Tom thinks female teachers are incapable of carrying concealed.

From the transcript:

And then the fact that they have the gun come out when the uniformed police arrive and do what they’re supposed to do, run in, they’re liable to get killed because all the police are going to see is someone waving a gun around and they’re coming into an active shooter situation. So, you know, that adds to the danger.

And then one of the things that people don’t talk about, a lot of these schools — Sandy Hook had an all-female faculty from principal to teachers. And for a woman, where are you going to hide that gun during the day? You can’t put it in your desk drawer, somebody might steal it and you can’t get to it.

You’re not going to have it in a safe in the principal’s office, you can’t get to it. On your person, hiding it — if you wear a dress, if you wear a skirt, are you going to have to wear a jacket every day with a belt and a holster the way a detective, you know, on duty would do?

It’s not a real practical solution even for a variety of reasons much less being adept is more than just pulling the trigger and making the bullet go down range.

WHITFIELD: Right. And the comfort level, all of that. You know, so many teachers have arms open. They want to hug their kids. I remember that from my school teachers. And certainly that would present a real problem of where exactly to put the gun if it comes to that.

FUENTES: Oh, yes. The kids are going to be “hey, Miss Jones, are you packing?” I mean it’s just not a good situation for it.

WHITFIELD: All right. We’ll have you back. Tom Fuentes — thank you so much. Appreciate it.

Let’s start with that “waving a gun around” part. Apparently since Tom is former FIB, that type of behavior must be de rigueur for the FIB. When they aren’t running guns to Mexico. He must think armed citizens behave that way. We don’t. Tom has seen one too many movies apparently, I don’t care if they were training films telling the FIB how we, the unwashed masses behave. We don’t. We apparently behave far better than the FIB, since I wouldn’t, and don’t personally know concealed carry people that would behave in such a manner.

Shall we move on to the for a woman, where are you going to hide that gun during the day part?

I know, hard to believe this is a serious question. But like little Julie Bandaras from FOX who apparently doesn’t know anyone who has every bought a gun legally, this idiot doesn’t know any women who are smart enough to be prepared protect themselves.

It reminds me of the story of the Pauline Kael political quote.

In December 1972, a month after U.S. President Richard Nixon was reelected in a landslide victory, Kael gave a lecture at the Modern Language Association, during which she said, “I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon. Where they are I don’t know. They’re outside my ken. But sometimes when I’m in a theater I can feel them”

Then Fredericka of cnn #FakeNews chimes in,

You know, so many teachers have arms open. They want to hug their kids.

Right Fredericka, they are only capable of giving hugs, cause they’re women, right? If someone came in to hurt them, be it a crazed kid, pedophile, the unibomber, Chucky the killer clown, or muslims #ReligionOfPieces ala Beslan, they would only want to stand there and hug, they wouldn’t want to stop the SOB in it’s tracks right? Cause well, they’re women, and that’s all they can do? I have a hunch that “open arms” excuse is crap because in this age of #MeToo, I really doubt too many teachers feel safe to “hug” their students.

Ahh Tom and Fredericka, both up to cnn #FakeNews highest journalistic standards.

CNN has standards? Who knew!

 

 

 

 

 

 

So let’s talk about those elusive, at least for cnn #FakeNews journalistic standards.

From The Washington Examiner, No one would accept, in any other national discussion, the level of ignorance seen in the gun debate

Weinstein is correct when he writes, “The onus should be on those citizens who own the weapons technology, and purport to understand it, to share that understanding with the skeptical and less-informed.”

Beauchamp also notes that there’s a big difference between correcting a gun control advocate who’s “actually writing the legislation” versus “a random citizen deciding whether to support a new [assault weapons ban].”

And this is why that open discussion often doesn’t take place.

Because gun ban proponents don’t want to have a discussion. They just want to fling poo. The article continues.

It’s the ignorance of lawmakers, gun control activists, and media commentators that is inexcusable and insulting. Understanding the issue is the bare minimum required of their respective professions. Yet, so many simply refuse to learn the topic.

It’s things like Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., saying she opposes “rapid-fire magazines,” whatever those are. It’s things like Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., calling for a ban on “gas-assisted receiver firearms,” which are not real. It’s things like professional cable news commentator Steve Schmidt saying it’s harder to buy cough medicine than an AK-47, which is a damned, stupid lie.

No one would ever accept this level of ignorance and dishonesty in a similarly serious and emotionally charged debate.

No one would cheer if a pundit said it’s easier to get a late-term abortion than Sudafed. His audience would ask to see his homework. No one would shrug it off if a legislator incorrectly referred to a “trimester” as a “semester.”

……

Hell, no one would accept this level of ignorance from a traffic report. If a journalist referred to a pickup truck as an “auto-style speedbox,” he would rightly be laughed off the air.

Apparently neither Tom or Fredericka are aware that many everyday women are far more prepared to defend their animals, themselves and their homes than “progressive” women are to defend their children. It amuses me to think of the potential number of women these two twits may have passed on the street that are carrying concealed weapons.

I’m sure it would be a shock to them to know there are books with such topics covered. The Cornered Cat: A Woman’s Guide to Concealed Carry

There are great women’s concealed carry holsters.

There are beautiful custom handmade holsters.

There are shops with all kinds of amazing gear for women.

There are concealed carry purses.

So what it boils down to, Tom, is you are an ignorant, misogynistic, condescending miserable excuse for a man.

Women are capable of far more than you can even dream of. We cut down trees, we raise animals, children, work in the military, law enforcement, are legislators, take care of people and we can not only carry a firearm, we can deploy it and save the life of someone we care about. A concept foreign to you, the Sheriff of Coward county, and Captain Jan Jordan, who directed deputies to stage and form a perimeter outside Stoneman Douglas High School, rather than immediately entering the building during the mass shooting.

And ya’ll, ya’ll are the “professionals” that you and your ilk want us to leave our safety, and the safety of our families in your hands?  Oh HECK no. No thanks you miserable wretch. Bless your heart.

Because us real women?  WE can do pretty ok.

Happy Purim 2018

Purim in the year 2018. In the short video 4:47 long, you can have a cliff notes version of Purim if you want to watch it.

So the wicked Haman’s plan was to eliminate the Jews, once and for all, the “final solution”. In case you didn’t know this, Haman is a descendant of Amalek, yep, the one I talked about recently. Some people think that Hitler’s holocaust was the first attempt. Hardly. But an Alaskan congress critter recently seemed to have stirred up a kerfluffle recently when he stated

A congressman from Alaska suggested that Jews were “put in the ovens” by Nazis during World War II because they did not have guns.

This is arguable? I guess, by some. But it’s a Demoncrat who wants to run against him

The head of the Anti-Defamation League has called the claim a “distortion of history.”

With all due respect to the ADL…and really, that’s not much respect.

Let’s take just a brief look at a well known time and place in history for illustration. The Warsaw Ghetto. The Jews in the Warsaw ghetto held out longer than the country of Poland. How did that happen?

Cue dreamy sequence, you know, mist, clouds, soft music swirly colors…..

Mordecai Anielewicz: “Ok, the nazis are going to come down this street here. Sarah, when they pass your position you fling your pink hat with pointy ears into their path that should totally disorient them and shame them for at least five minutes. Then  Dovid, you and Yigal grab your rolled up copies of the New York Slimes and Haaretz and attack from the rear while they are still immobilized from shame. Then Shannon and Whoopie can run by bravely showing off the safety pins on their jackets all the while screaming “HASHTAG SAFE SPACE, HASHTAG SAFE SPACE”. As the nazis begin to retreat in fear of hearing “HASHTAG ME TOO” Michael, Rachel, Leah and Josef can march with the “gun free zone” signs and hit them with those. If we are successful, we should have the nazis cleared out in about thirty minutes! Then we will hang our new nazi Free Zone sign at the entrance!”

Pretty good spiel, huh?

Reality:

Two Jewish underground organisations fought in the Warsaw Uprising: the left wing Żydowska Organizacja Bojowa (ŻOB) founded in July 1942 by Zionist Jewish youth groups within the Warsaw Ghetto;and the right wing Żydowski Związek Wojskowy (ŻZW), or Jewish Military Union, a national organization founded in 1939 by former Polish military officers of Jewish background which had strong ties to the Polish Home Army, and cells in almost every major town across Poland. However both organisations were officially incorporated into the Polish Home Army and its command structure in exchange for weapons and training.

Marek Edelman, who was the only surviving uprising commander from the left-wing ŻOB, stated that the ŻOB had 220 fighters and each was armed with a handgun, grenades, and Molotov cocktails. His organization had three rifles in each area, as well as two land mines and one submachine gun. Due to its socialist leanings, the Soviets promoted the actions of ŻOB as the dominant or only party in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, a view often adopted by secondary sources in the West.

The right-wing faction ŻZW which was founded by former Polish officers, was larger, more established and had closer ties with the Polish resistance, making it better equipped. Zimmerman describes the arm supplies for the uprising as “limited but real”. Specifically, Jewish fighters of the ŻZW received from the Polish Home Army: 2 heavy machine guns, 4 light machine guns, 21 submachine guns, 30 rifles, 50 pistols, and over 400 grenades for the uprising. During the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, ŻZW is reported to have had about 400 well-armed fighters grouped in 11 units, with 4 units including fighters from the Polish Home Army. Due to the ŻZW’s anti-socialist stand and close ties with the Polish Home Army (which was subsequently outlawed by the Soviets), the Soviets suppressed publication of books and articles on ŻZW after the war and downplayed its role in the uprising, in favour of the more socialist ŻOB.

More weapons were supplied throughout the uprising, and some were captured from the Germans. Some weapons were handmade by the resistance; sometimes such weapons worked, other times they jammed repeatedly.

Shortly before the uprising, Polish-Jewish historian Emanuel Ringelblum (who managed to escape from the Warsaw Ghetto, but was later discovered and executed in 1944) visited a ŻZW armoury hidden in the basement at 7 Muranowska Street. In his notes, which form part of Oneg Shabbat archives, he reported:

They were armed with revolvers stuck in their belts. Different kinds of weapons were hung in the large rooms: light machine guns, rifles, revolvers of different kinds, hand grenades, bags of ammunition, German uniforms, etc., all of which were utilized to the full in the April “action”. (…) While I was there, a purchase of arms was made from a former Polish Army officer, amounting to a quarter of a million złoty; a sum of 50,000 złoty was paid on account. Two machine guns were bought at 40,000 złoty each, and a large amount of hand grenades and bombs.

If the ADL is right, then history is wrong and the Jews in the ghetto should never have died, right? Why were they trying so hard to get their hands on more weapons? What good would they have done? Right ADL?

Poland is currently attempting to rewrite their own history by criminalizing speech. You can’t say certain things anywhere (according to Poland) without fear of incurring their wrath and a lawsuit. Yes, the death camps were a Nazi invention. But the Pole’s had plenty of their own antisemitism. And plenty of it was on display after WWII, after the nazis were beaten.

Anti-Jewish violence in Poland, 1944–1946

Anti-Jewish violence in Central and Eastern Europe, 1944–46

A Zehut member, the brilliant Lisa Liel writes in a column A lesson from the Megillah

Why did Esther want the Jews to be able to defend themselves on the 14th, when that decree was no longer in force?

Which brings us to the second thing she asked for. She wanted the dead bodies of Haman’s 10 sons, the heroes of the anti-Jewish forces, strung up on the gallows that their father had been hanged on. Not to kill them, because they were already dead. But as a symbolic gesture, letting the anti-Jewish forces know that they weren’t just beaten for the day, but that they were done.

Esther wasn’t stupid, though. She knew what the reaction would be when the Jew-haters woke up the next morning and saw Haman’s sons twisting in the wind. And that is why she asked for special dispensation to fight and kill any enemies who rose up against them. Because she intended to provoke them into it.

So why do it? Why provoke them and then ask for permission to protect her people from the results of her provocation? And here’s where we can learn something from Queen Esther.

Peace with those who want to murder you for who you are is not obtained through treaties or compromise. Nations that have economic differences or other policy differences can end wars with a compromise. But when one side is dedicated to the destruction of the other, compromise is suicidal. The aggressor must be dealt with decisively. Beaten soundly and made to feel that they have absolutely lost. Otherwise, they’ll just come back and try again.

This whole column is really good and worth the reading.

It is much the same with those who promote defenselessness as a good strategy for survival. Of course they have their guards, their walls and their security methods, but for the unwashed masses in general, no, no, we’re much safer without guns amongst us. So they tell us, repeatedly. They just keep coming back and at us from different directions to try to mandate us into a state of defenselessness. They try again and again. Some are useful idiots, they’ve been brought up to believe it, they watch cnn #FakeNews and msnbc #FakeNews and believe them. The NY Slimes, they believe. Some are not useful idiots, they know very well people will be left virtually helpless to stop attacks. But they want to keep themselves safe from us! Which always raises the question for me “What do they want to do, that they can not do if people like me are armed and prepared?” Well modern day Haman? What’s the answer?

And Persia, has Persia changed much from the Persia of old? Iran official threatens Israel: ‘We’ll level Tel Aviv to the ground’ Um, not so much, no.

In the Purim story it took a brave Jewish Queen, Ester, her cousin Mordecai and a decree to allow the Jews to defend themselves.

How’s about we learn from history and quit asking or letting our legislators legislate us into defenselessness. Because that just never works out well for the law abiding innocent citizen.

Purim is a holiday of joy and victory. They tried to kill us, we won, let’s eat!

אוזני המן, Oznei Haman Haman’s Ears

And because it is Purim, and I love Purim, I have a little movie for you. YES, it does have a horse in it! A real one! It is a parody of the video What Does The Fox Say, but this one is pretty cool.

חג פורים שמח Chag Purim Samach, Happy Purim!

Valentine’s Day

I spent Valentine’s Day at a state Capitol building. I was part of a group that was trying to network Israeli technology with American companies and possibly governments, as well as just inform and answer questions. We had different sections such as agriculture, technology, history, famous people, medicine, and defense. I had three different mini-lectures to give on agricultural innovations. We each worked up our own lectures. I must say the day went very well for us with many legislators and office workers stopping at our display, listening to our talks and asking questions. The Capitol building itself is very beautiful, a historic building of charm and elegance. I helped with the set up of the screens and the posters and after we were done I admired both the beautiful posters and the paintings on the walls of the rotunda. The walls of the rotunda are covered with paintings of scenes of history. One was of cattle being loaded and I really looked at that one and thought, sometimes a cattle car, is just a cattle car. I spent extra time looking at the ones with horses in them of course. We had enough to be on each of the four wall sections.

At which point 3 women and a guy (?) that was a pure double for obama’s pajama boy came marching in. They were all wearing red t-shirts and red tennis shoes with sequins. Yes, I did say all. Want to hazard a guess what their t-shirts said? Yep, Moms Demand Autopsies. The leader informed the leader of my group that they had a wall reserved. They were way late getting there. Our group had been there and set up with military precision, gee I wonder why that, oh yeah. I was working with former IDF.

She demanded “Do you have a wall reserved”? He informed her we have three. She then demanded HER wall, and stated slightly hysterically actually, they have one HUNDRED people coming! Our leader calmly shrugged and said we had four hundred. We picked a wall, took our stuff and reorganized onto three. We weren’t try to TAKE their wall, we just didn’t realize anyone else was coming. I of course am trying not to retch, thinking really G-d? Is that your idea of a joke? They did have more people drift in during the day, but when they took their big group photo together they all huddled together and someone went up one floor so they could shoot down and then crop it so it would look crowded. There were maybe 25 people. Usual MDA math. I wanted to ask them if they still hated Jews and point to the cattle car and ask why?

But it was a full and successful day for us.

When I got in my little car and sped toward the beauty of the rural area inhabited by my fur children I chatted via bluetooth with one of my girlfriends about our days, lives, horses, the usual.

Which is why I didn’t hear about the school shooting till I got home. I hadn’t had the radio on. It made having shared a rotunda with Moms Demanding Autopsies all the sicker. I was glad I didn’t know then.

So much of that could have gone differently. The school knew that Bucket of Chum was a threat. He had been expelled for making death threats. He had posted a comment on a youtube web site he wanted to be a professional school shooter. That was last fall. The poster of the video immediately notified the FIB who talked to him the next morning for 15-20 minutes, and nothing came of it. Guess the FIB was busy with other things. The school sent a e-mail telling staff not to let him on campus with a backpack. Was he on medication? Was he on the same Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) drugs used for depression that the Columbine killers were on?

You know what else this lunatic had in common with other school murders? Using the fire alarm.

– 1974 Olean High School Shooting, Olean, New York. A student lit a Molotov cocktail inside the school and then shot 14 people fleeing the fire alarm from the third floor of the school.

-1981- University of Michigan Shooting. A dorm resident threw Molotov cocktails inside his dorm and shot two students fleeing the flames

– 1998 Westside Middle School, Jonesborough, AK. An 11-year old student asked to be excused from class. He pulled the fire alarm and then ran outside to join his friend in the woods 100 yards away from the school. The two killers shot students evacuating the school.

– 2013 Carver High School Shooting, Winston-Salem NC. A student fired five shots (hitting one person) during a scheduled school fire drill.

-2013 Thwarted University of Central Florida attack. A student pulled the fire alarm at his dorm and planned to shoot evacuating residents. The student’s roommate physically intervened after the alarm was pulled and the would-be killer shot himself instead.

– 2014 Marysville, Washington. A victim pulled the fire alarm to trigger an evacuation while a Freshman student was shooting up the school lunch room.

-2016 Jeremiah Burke High School Shooting in Dorchester, Maryland. Three people shot during a fire alarm evacuation.

-2016 OSU Terrorist Attack. An Islamist terrorist targeted students evacuating a fire alarm with a vehicle and knife attack.

-2017 Thwarted Catocin, Maryland High School attack. Student planned to use school “emergency drills” to bomb and kill her fellow students

– 2017 Aztec High School Shooting, Aztec, New Mexico. Fire alarms triggered in the school from smoke of shooter’s gunfire. Conflicting instructions for both a lockdown and a fire evacuation led to confusion and likely more victims.

– 2017 Thwarted Shooting at Bethlehem, Pennsylvania High School. Shooters were planning to pull the school fire alarm and shoot evacuating victims from the roof of the school.

-2018- Yesterday’s Stoneman Douglas School Shooting in Parkland, Florida. The shooter killed 17 students as they evacuated a fire alarm

So I would say based on the current screeches from the victim disarmament crowd, we need to outlaw fire alarms. Yes, yes, I know many will whine that their fire alarm hasn’t caused any deaths, but it could! That fire alarm in your child’s school could suddenly all on it’s own one day go off and cause your child to die! Isn’t it better to be safe and outlaw all fire alarms? If it saves even one child. I think the media need to voluntarily surrender their fire alarms immediately. Followed closely by all Demoncratic politicians to set a good example. They don’t really need fire alarms any more these days. Everyone has a cellphone with them, they can just call the fire department. It’s not like in the old days when people might not make it to a phone, or the lines might be melted. In a neighborhood folks would see the smoke and most likely call it in, there is no need for fire alarms. Then they can wait for the fire department to show up and stop the threat, because in addition to turning in their fire alarms, all the media and Demoncratic politicians need to turn in their high capacity fire extinguishers as well.

Armed Student & Teacher

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So let’s talk about that wait. What do they do while they are waiting. Waiting for what? For the call to go out to the police, because the Police don’t respond to fire alarms normally. Few police departments have that as their policy it seems. So tripping the fire alarm doesn’t call the police. Then you wait for the police to show up. And then you wait for the SWAT team to show up. And then you wait as people die. Why call the police? Because you want a good guy with a gun to show up and stop the bad guy with a gun? Did the school hire off duty cops or extra security guards? No. Did the school have a security guard? Yes, the football coach apparently doubled as a security guard. Was he armed? No. He died shielding students with his body because that is all he flipping had. He gave his life in an attempt to save theirs. WHY the heck didn’t he have a gun? Why didn’t he have the most effective tool to stop this deadly threat? This is something that should be incomprehensible to sane people. It’s like the attack on the IDF soldiers in Jenin the day before.

“The mob quickly surrounded us, broke our windows, and tried to injure us. It was absolutely a lynch,” the soldier said.

“All I could do was scream until someone came to rescue us.”

Yep, soldiers from the IDF had to wait for the Falestinian Authority Police to show up and fire their guns in the air to disperse the crowd and rescue the IDF soldiers. The cherry on top is the FA Police recovered the M-16 stolen from one of the soldiers and returned it to the IDF.

Abu Mazen’s Idea of “Peace”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How you ask, could this happen? Why didn’t the soldiers defend themselves? The M-16 wasn’t loaded. And with the left leaning IDF leadership, they are possibly told that defense of their own life isn’t a valid reason. I’m sure Elor Azariya would agree.

And this is the painful point. There are people so tied to their failed ideology, “guns evil” and “can’t be seen as aggressor” that they are willing to sacrifice innocent lives. Did the gun free zone work? No. Did the staff email work? No. Did having an unloaded M16 stop a threat? No. In both cases it was (reasonably in the case of the FA) good guys showing up with guns.

So back to Moms Demanding Autopsies, them hating Jews and cattle cars being cattle cars. Does such Jew hatred still exist? Cape Town Hates Israel So Much It Rejected its Offer to End Drought Crisis. Zero day, the day it is expected to run out of water, is sometime in mid-April. Israel offered to help in many ways. It was all rebuffed. They are willing to lose their way of life, and let people die rather than to accept help from Jews, from Israel.

Lessons?

  1. The wait for a good guy with a gun is long.
  2. Bodies don’t stop bullets or protect others from them.
  3. Empty M16s don’t stop lynch attempts.
  4. Sometimes, a cattle car isn’t just a cattle car.

Schools over. Yes, Valentine’s Day is suppose to be about love. Not everyone makes that choice.

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.

Dads, the original Superheroes

Pretty impressive eh?? Especially since it seems that TV and advertisers seem to delight in portraying men as foolish and incompetent, sort of window dressing to the family.

Dumbing down Dad: How media present husbands, fathers as useless

It’s not hard to find. If you watch TV, then you’ve most likely witnessed the portrayal of the modern-day husband and father as lazy, incompetent and stupid.

Just these three characteristics are sure to bring to mind one commercial or sitcom that personifies this type of man.

Or perhaps TV sitcoms’ working-class fathers depicted as ‘bumbling,’ ‘incapable,’ study finds

An analysis of 13 fathers in 12 recent TV sitcoms and their 699 interactions with their minor children showed that working-class fathers continued to be depicted less positively than middle-class fathers, said study author Jessica Troilo, assistant professor of child development and family studies at West Virginia University.

This follows the kind of pattern seen, wherein TV working-class fathers are typified as “kind of bumbling” and “incapable,” compared to middle-class fathers, Ms. Troilo said.

Not mine. My dad was John Wayne, Roy Rogers and Pa Walton all rolled into one. He thought if I wanted to learn to rebuild a carburetor, put on tie rod ends or throw a football I should learn and he taught me. He did insist my sisters and I all knew how to safely change a tire.

But I watched a few of these hero dad videos with interest. A friend of mine had posted a similar compilation on Facebook and it got me to thinking. These guys have lighting quick reflexes when it comes to saving their kids, and sometime the kids of others. But what about the mindset?  Because that matters.

I thought about the stories that come everyday, when men are hero husbands and dads, and they all had one thing in common. Every single one of them. If I give you a snippet, can you figure it out??

Father Dining With Family

The father told police the gunman turned the gun on his family, at which point he pulled out his own handgun and shot the robber.

Armed Robber Breaks Into Home

The sheriff’s office says the homeowner woke up to his dogs barking and the back door open. The homeowner reportedly armed himself and approached the back door. He then saw that Yang was armed with a firearm so the homeowner fired his gun and hit the suspect twice.

The homeowner’s wife and his two children were both home during the altercation.

Yang dropped his weapon and dropped to the ground but got up and ran away from the home. Yang reportedly went to other houses looking for help, and Collinsville police later found him lying in the street not far from the home he tried to break into. Investigators found multiple firearms.

Fort Worth Homeowner

While on the phone with 911, police say the intruder continued making threats on the family and trashing items inside the house, then we’re told he attempted to run towards one of the rooms.

At that point investigators tell CBS11 the father fired at the unidentified man killing him inside the home.

Police also say the suffered a stab wound from the intruder who was armed with a knife.

Quick-Thinking Dad

The harrowing ordeal unfolded on Tuesday night when Amber Brackney was leaving her home in Baker, Florida, and noticed that her driveway was blocked by mysterious barrels.

Rather than get out of the car, Brackney called her father, Terry Brackney, 51, who was inside the home and attempted to navigate around the barrels, which police believe might have been intentionally placed in an effort to snatch the teen.

As his daughter got around the barrier, Terry Brackney heard some strange sounds coming from outside and immediately grabbed his gun and jumped into action, according to a police report from the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.

“After spotting some individuals trying to force their way into his garage, he fired three shots and the intruders fled into the woods,” the report read. “He later learned they had unscrewed some of his security lights.”

Houston Father Saves Family

A family in Houston, Texas, was relaxing in their home Sunday when three armed men suddenly entered and demanded money. Before the intruders could steal anything, however, the father used his own firearm to shoot two of them. The third intruder ran away from the scene and is still at large.

Yes, I could go on with more examples, but I’m sure you have all figured it out by now. They were all wearing Justin cowboy boots! Naw, just kidding. They were all armed and prepared and willing to do any and every thing necessary to protect their families.

You would think that the media would celebrate these sorts of rescues as they do the ones in the videos. But they do not. It seems they will warble on about how risky, how dangerous, how lucky they didn’t accidentally shoot their child or spouse instead of the undocumented house-guest. But John Lott has an interesting column that points out just how politicized the FBI became under sotero/obama.

A 2014 FBI report claims that only once between 2000 and 2013 did a concealed handgun permit holder stop a public shooting (they claimed to look at all cases where guns were fired in public that weren’t part of a gang fight or some other crime). This single case occurred in Winnemucca, Nevada in May 2008, when a customer with a permit fatally shot an attacker who had just killed two people. They didn’t even include the 2007 church shooting in Colorado Springs, where a killer had already taken two lives at the church before being stopped by a permit holder.

This false claim just shows how politicized the FBI became under the Obama administration. Many times, police, sheriffs, and prosecutors have gone on the record and credited permit holders with saving many lives. These attacks didn’t get national news attention, but they would have been on front pages everywhere if a permit holder hadn’t intervened.

He goes on to list other cases, and here is the link to the study from the FIB he references.

I think that there is just something hardwired into us, that as adults we protect the young, weak and vulnerable, or those with whom we have a connection. Be it children, siblings, elderly parents, friends and yes, our pets. They are like human children, only furrier, or with feathers.

But if you want or need more motivation to carry the most effective tool to protect your kith, kin and kitty, there is a great column by John Conner called “Why Do You Carry A Gun?” It is well worth reading.

I know it isn’t Father’s Day, but really, shouldn’t there be more than one day a year to say thank you to the hero fathers that save kids from baseball bats, drowning, falling off horses, into pits and tie our shoe laces and teach us to change tie rod ends? I think so. I wish I told mine more.

New Years Eve or Sylvester Night

While much of the world celebrated New Years Eve as the start of a fresh new civil year, it is not the same for Jews. Remember, the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah, began at sunset on September 20th, 2017. New years eve is also known as Sylvester night. Sylvester night has long been known as a scheduled pogrom night. This column explains it very well. But here are some salient points.

This evening was, once the calendar settled on December 25th as Christmas, calculated to be the night preceding the circumcision of the child born in the “little town of Bethlehem”, therefore a call for the local peasants to engage in drinking, making merry and killing Jews.

Darkness along with the silence before a storm reigned in Jewish shteitls (small villages) that night in an attempt to make it harder to find defenseless victims, barricaded behind the flimsy doors of their huts. Torah study, which was done by the light of candles, was thus impossible.
As opposed to random pogroms and other manifestations of Jew hatred, this was a predictable yearly date.

A “Yerushalmi”, i.e. someone who lived in the Old City of Jerusalem before the State of Israel was declared, once told me that in this part of the world they would barricade their doors on Easter Sunday, knowing that the traditional Christian procession would often end in rioting against the local Jews.

Sylvester was Pope from January 31, 314 C.E. to December 31, 335 C.E. His Saint’s Day is the day he was buried, and it falls on December 31 of every year, that is since the civil solar calendar was straightened out (the Jewish calendar is a lunar one).

“On New Years Day 1577 Pope Gregory XIII decreed that all Roman Jews, under pain of death, must listen attentively to the compulsory Catholic conversion sermon given in Roman synagogues after Friday night services.  On New Years Day 1578 Gregory signed into law a tax forcing Jews to pay for the support of a ‘House of Conversion’ to convert Jews to Christianity.  On New Years 1581 Gregory ordered his troops to confiscate all sacred literature from the Roman Jewish community.  Thousands of Jews were murdered in the campaign.

“The Israeli term for New Year’s night celebrations, Sylvester, was the name of the ‘Saint’ and Roman Pope who reigned during the Council of Nicaea (325 C.E.).  The year before the Council of Nicaea convened, Sylvester is said to have convinced Constantine to prohibit Jews from living in Jerusalem.

I know that’s a lot of quoting, but I think you understand what I mean when I say it’s not the same New Years Eve commonly thought of. I want to compare history with today. Easy one first, Jerusalem. This is actually the most cheerful one of the lot. While perhaps the media would have you believe that the Arab world is united standing behind the Falestinians, that is not at all the case. They are not. Now, the UN, that is another story. No matter who it is, if Israel is involved, the UN stands behind them in condemning Israel. If Israel were invaded by something out of the movie “Independence Day” or “Men In Black” the UN would unite behind the space invaders who want to destroy all of humanity to condemn Israel. Iran slaughtering it’s citizens? Yawn. And the Israeli politicians are finally, perhaps, beginning to act like all of Israel, is well, Israel. There were two good bills passed. The United Jerusalem bill and the bill calling for Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria. You should check out the link on the United Jerusalem bill just to see the jaw dropping beautiful picture of Jerusalem they used with the article. So this New Years does show some good things happening as compared to the past.

Now let’s look at the part about Pope Gregory and his tax forcing Jews to pay for a house of conversion. France it seems has decided to open a special tax branch, to investigate Jews only. Yep, secular France is going after Jews with their very own tax branch. From Pamela Geller

My various sources in Paris tell me it is life for Jews in France is intolerable. The large spike in Muslim immigration has made the terrible – the horrible. Daily humiliations and the constant threat of violence are their constant companions. And it is widely known that going to the police is pointless. The police have long turned a blind eye to the war on country’s Jews.

So that part is about the same, except they attacks and killing seems to be coming from the imported Muslims and the tax part is coming from the government. Not both from the same source, not that who it comes from affects the outcome much.

So regarding at attacks, let’s look at another country which is becoming Muslim dominant, jolly old England, and specifically London. London proudly did the politically correct thing and elected a Muslim mayor. Not sure that they think it turned out all that well, well at least the law abiding citizens may not. We know islamic terror has been up under Mayor Sadiq who dismissed it as part and parcel of living in a big city. Raheem Kassam has a good column on how that’s played out for Londoners as crime has skyrocketed.

It would seem that while Christians attacking Jews has dropped way off, in fact I don’t know of any recently, there may have been, I haven’t heard of it, muslim attacks have not decreased at all, in fact they are increasing I would say.

Which brings me to a particular attack that occurred recently in Jerusalem. The was an attack against two Jewish kids in Jerusalem. In case you don’t know what a 2013 EASY attack looks like, here ya go.

A pack of Falestinians attack and the crowd grows ever bigger, even the “kids” get in on the fun. A game the whole family can play it seems.

In this particular attack, the victims were beaten. They reported it to the police, who opened an investigation and caught the “arab youths” or as we might call them, “thugs”. This column was from Arutz Sheva.

I found out later from another column that someone shared there is a bit more to it than that. They were forced to convert to Islam, to praise the terrorist organization Hamas, and curse the State of Israel and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. And all the while it was being video taped. In addition to going to the police, they went to the legal organization Honenu. Forced conversion version 2018. Side note, this is no big deal as it’s been going on in Germany and America for awhile, just minus the beating part.

This attack violated their body and their soul. Shades of Pope Gregory. Of course, the Pope is still attacking Jews, so that hasn’t changed.

I would maintain the Haredi are easy targets. Their clothing sets them apart, and it’s well known that they have no military service, and so no self defense skills. Unless of course they are attacking a lone female IDF soldier who attempts to clear them out of the road when they are blocking traffic.

Why they didn’t do that when they were attacked by the arabs I don’t kno….yeah, I do.

They don’t know their enemy. Reminiscent of Moshe Feiglin asking a the Chief of Staff who the enemy was, Hamass or the tunnel and the the Chief of Staff couldn’t answer.

My answer of course is predictable. I think all the Israeli citizens, well, all citizens, need to be allowed to carry concealed. Moshe, of course agrees with me. From August 2016 Give the Good Guys Guns and from May 2014 Gun Control? Or Citizen Control? Some governments view us as the enemy. We are not. They don’t know who their enemy is. We are people that don’t wish to experience a modern day Sylvester night. The government and the liberal leftists with their paid bodyguards think normal little people, us unwashed masses are “dangerous”. I would ask why they think that? What is it they want to do that they think we will resist, and they want to remove the most effective means of resistance we have? The tools that make us dangerous. They haven’t yet figured out it’s what’s in our head, not our hand that makes people dangerous. Dangerous. Reminds me of a conversation I had with a friend not all that long ago. A person can be dangerous, and they can be good or evil. It’s not that fact that they are dangerous you need to fear. It’s whether they are good or evil. I want to be dangerous. I want to have the ability to protect myself and my family. I want to be dangerous, I have no intention of kneeling on the ground reciting islamic conversion sentences. I want to stand on my own two feet and scream Shema at them and have them run. His point was, we have to know who we are, and what we are. To me, being dangerous is an asset. I have no desire to huddle behind a flimsy door afraid to have a light on. I have no desire to see a modern day Sylvester night, no matter who is perpetrating it.

New year, new start. I will give you this by Rabbi Johnathan Sacks, Five Ideas for Life. We are all here for a purpose I believe. We all have something we were meant to accomplish. I believe we are happiest when we know what that is and we are fulfilling that purpose. We have to know ourselves. So my goal for this year is to become better at my purpose, for my soul to become closer to what G-d created it to be. I want to be a child that makes him smile as he thinks, ah, she is catching on. I want to be dangerous, and I want to lose that ten pounds.

And so to help you stay dangerous, I have a little goodie for you. Stephen Wenger who wrote DEFENSIVE USE OF FIREARMS is making the book available as a free download! This fantastic book is out of print, so this e-version is a great way to start your new year. Thank you Stephen for permission to share!

I wish you all the bright promise the new year can bring, with hope, happiness, dreams fulfilled and all the good things that matter to you. And may you all stay dangerous, because whether it is New Years Eve or Sylvester night, depends on us.

A Can of Peas or a Gun?? Tough Choices!

I heard on the news today there had recently been a shooting attack at a big box store called Costco.  I have it on good authority that this is not possible!! Costco is a gun free zone! Admittedly they only came clean in 2014 that they were gun free. Before that they didn’t want to tick off gun owners by being proudly gun free.

But despite this gold standard of safety it seems an as yet unnamed man entered Costco today yelling and brandishing a gun. No word yet on what type of gun went crazy today and grabbed a nearby human and forced him to transport him to the gun free Costco. Even though the gun knew it was not welcome there, it forced the human to provide transportation. As the apparently distraught human entered Costco it was yelling. The employees tried to lower the security gates but were unable to lower it in time.

People fled for the exits as they realized what was happening and one little 82 year old lady struggled to keep up with the crowd as they stampeded towards safety.

But earthly angels need to shop too. And apparently one was shopping in the store when the out of control gun and the hapless shouting human made their entry. An off duty police officer. As panicked shoppers and employees fled out the store the officer pulled his gun and his badge and held them up so people could see. And as the defenseless fled towards safety a good guy with a gun went to confront evil. And he killed it. There were no other casualties. None. Apparently the good guy gun was better than the bad guy gun. Because after all, it’s all about an inanimate piece of metal right?

But I have lingering questions. Will the good guy with a gun be prosecuted by Costco? I mean, after all, he wasn’t on duty.  And he obviously was carrying a gun in a “gun free zone”! Did the off-duty police officer check to see how many blacks vs how many whites were in the store? Aren’t they all suppose to be racist according to BLM?  Are there any other types of Costco members that they have no concern for besides the 82 year old woman that struggled to keep up and escape? Perhaps they also have no regard for young children. They can’t run very fast either. Mothers carrying infants? They are sure to be slower. Questions for Costco to ponder, what is their “target” demographic?  Either way, if shopping in a store that has made it clear that you must be defenseless and vulnerable to be welcome is your thing, I wouldn’t be surprised if Costco doesn’t have a sale on memberships err long.

I was told by someone I respect enormously I should be able to kill someone with a can of peas, should the occasion call for it, or the need arise. But do battle with a can of peas (not that I’m not willing, should the occasion call for it) instead of a gun?  Inconceivable
