News notes of just crazy irony…
…the FBI search of Donald Trump’s residence at Mar-al-Lago was directed by an FBI Director that he nominated, saying “He will make us all proud…we will have great FBI Director.”
More, one of the laws that Trump is being investigated over is one that he signed into law in January 2018. In response to Hillary’s mishandling classified information, then President Trump signed into law a measure to make it a felony to unlawfully retain or conceal any classified information. AND that law also said that any person convicted would be removed from office and be “disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”Continue reading “Trump Keeps Trump From Running?”

Since the Supreme Court’s recent decision on abortion on May 8, pro-life organizations have been victims of vandalism and violence, even those that exist solely to serve as resources for women’s health. Since May, fifty attacks on pro-life organizations have been reported to authorities.Continue reading “Violence Against Pro-Life Groups Grows”
New York Rep. Lee Zeldin was attached yesterday during a campaign event.
While delivering a speech on the effects of New York State’s progressive bail reform, Zeldin was attached by a man who jumped on stage, grabbed him and pulled a dagger-like weapon.
After the attacker was wrestled to the ground and taken away, Zeldin went on with his speech and predicted that the man would be out of jail within a day because of the new law. Sure enough, the attacker was charged with a felony, after attacking a public official, and was released six hours later with no bail.
THAT is progressive justice reform.
With all of the recent tragedies involving guns, here is one clear example of what can be done.
Two teenagers were arrested for stealing 22 guns from a gun shop. They got 21 days–less than a day per gun–in juvenile detention. Even their father has said that is not enough and something needs to be done, as both of the teenagers already have significant arrest records.
Enforce the laws we already have on the books and make criminals pay! How simple is that? And to give such a light sentence for someone stealing guns to sell and put on the street, especially someone who already has a criminal history…how much more self-destructive can we, as a society, be?!
Tragic shootings and rising violence cannot help but grab the attention and concern of every American. Recent events remind us of that yet again. Two random, but related, observations struck this author.Continue reading “Two Observations on Gun Violence”
Tennessee State Senator Katrina Robinson was expelled from her position on Wednesday, the first time in history that an elected member of the Legislature was expelled from office. This vote came after her conviction on federal wire fraud charges.
Speaking on Wednesday before the vote, Robinson claimed that the move was racist and misogynist and was a “procedural lynching”. She made no mention of the fact that she was now a convicted felon and could not even vote for herself in an election. Robinson took no responsibility for her actions, but repeatedly patted herself on the back for how she kept fighting through the discrimination towards her.
Unfortunately, this is a blatant example of what has become too common: that people of a certain political leaning throw out charges of racism or sexism or some other discriminatory charge toward anyone who disagrees with them and for no other reason than that. Those who flippantly make such charges are dangerous, yes, dangerous. With Holocaust Remembrance Day just last week, we are reminded how there is real discrimination and hatred in our world that we must fight when we find it. But when those become buzz words to use when you have no other argument to make and you are just desperately trying to lash out for your own selfish purposes, it diminishes the impact and over time becomes “the boy who cried wolf”.
A Los Angeles judge sentenced a transgender sex offender who pled guilty to molesting a 10-year old girl on Thursday.
Judge Mario Barrera sentenced the child molester to two years in a juvenile facility (the maximum allowed for a juvenile facility) but not before criticizing liberal LA District Attorney George Gascon.Continue reading “Far Left Justice: Protect The Criminals”
This columnist has deliberately waited a while after the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict to comment on anything related, because that trial and verdict has been so polarizing, and people just know the headlines and what they are told on social media.Continue reading “Rittenhouse Verdict In Kenosha”
