    More stiffing the little guy from haughty Kamala Harris
    By Monica Showalter- August 16, 2019

    As we’ve said more than once, Kamala Harris has an authenticity problem.

    Re: Red flag gun laws.

    These laws, if they ever pass, will be deemed unconstitutional in short order. It’s very simple. The plan for this laws is to shift the burden of proof onto the gun owner, the accused, and based on hearsay as the cherry on top. Once that takes hold the 2A horse has left the barn.

    Likes that’s going to fly…..

    I’m still open for a solution to these mass shootings but red flag laws is not the way. In the meantime I would like to bring up the fact that 36,000 people are killed every year in and by cars in this country. That’s ~100 a day. Let’s ban cars next. Oh wait, they want to do that too 😀

      On outlawing “assault rifles”:

      Puerto Rico has some of the most onerous gun control laws in the USA, akin or worse than those in NYC. This is a video shot in 2019, in full daylight in a very busy area. If you listen to the video some of the shooting is full auto, by the sound it seems to be from one or more AK47s (rifle caliber, slower rate of full auto fire). Gun control? Ban assault rifles? Yeah, that works (NOT).


    • Patrick says:

      Since you brought it up, here’s a possible solution:
      I would like to see a systematic investigation of the medical professionals who prescribed the SSRIs in every case of a mass murder incident, whether or not involving firearms. The investigation should examine any relationships or commonalities among the prescribers. Did they all go to the same college? Do they have mutual acquaintances? Have they corresponded with one another?

      This seems such an obvious step to take, particularly after the correlation between SSRIs and mass murders has been so scrupulously investigated and undeniably proven. IF government would perform its only legitimate function, to protect the citizenry against aggression, then this would have been done LONG ago.

      Either the shrinks are in collusion to disarm the populace and overthrow the Constitution, or SSRIs themselves must be banned as a clear and present danger to the public’s health and safety.

    Folks just wanted to repeat this from my post on a different thread. Would love your thoughts:

    I sort of like Keep America Great, but it just doesn’t resonate like MAGA. I was thinking this week about what President Trump can really do with a second term versus so much that he has done so far. That made me think about a different slogan, which I am suggesting here for everyone’s consideration:

    MAG ….. Make America GREATER!

    Think the economy is really good? Just wait till MANY more companies relocate plants here!

    Think we need immigration reform? Just wait till we have a secure border and many thousands of QUALIFIED legal immigrants are helping us grow!

    Make America GREATER!

      MAGA rolls off the tongue… one of those pronounceable acronyms, like FUBAR, or LOL (which I prefer to spell out, cuz the other way sounds goofy), or NATO. I agree about keeping MAGA and just try to redefine it. MAGA can represent the entirety of the President Trump experience, which is really what it’s come to represent, if you think about it. No need to fix something that’s not broken… as always.

      How ’bout “Making America Great Again”. “Make” was the goal… “Making” is the results…

      Keep America Great is anything but static.
      A Great America is an ever growing and achieving America.
      Not one Patriot suspects we’ve no work left to do or that PDJT is hoping to coast for his last term!

      Keep America Great Always KAGA… MAGA/KAG hybrid

    Have not had a chance to check and see if anyone knows about this. I went down a rabbit hole I think from Lucianne and found this:

    “Strange Jeep Followed ICIG Investigators Probing Hillary Email Scandal – Investigator’s House Broken Into, Computers Stolen, Trash Rummaged Through”

    So who is this Paul Wogerman?

    “Muh legacy, muh legacy”. 😁

    You know Obama’s team put this out there to hurt Biden.


    Obama told Biden advisers not to let the former Veep ‘damage his legacy’ in his 2020 presidential run


    A person familiar with the exchange told The Times that Obama said to Biden, “You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t.” But Biden responded that he felt he had an obligation to take on President Donald Trump and that he wouldn’t be able to forgive himself if he didn’t give it a shot.


    The report also said Obama asked some of Biden's top advisers to ensure the former vice president doesn't "damage his legacy" or "embarrass himself" during the campaign.

      It is a real challenge to imagine how O’Loser’s legacy could be any worse than what he left us.

    • After getting elected in ‘08, 0bama crowed about how he was going to “Fundamentally
      Transform” our nation.

      Luckily, this is America and his plan only got as far as destroying the democrat party. . . . , the rest of this nation didn’t need “Fundamental Transforming”

      Today we have a democrat party lost in a leftist wilderness for the foreseeable future.

      That’s about the extent of 0bama’s “legacy”

      Reminds me of the scene in the Patriot when Martin tells his men that Corn Wallace is nearly perfect at warfare and he knows it. The men get dejected and Martin tells them, this is great we can use this against him. They ask what he’s taking about and he says Pride is a weakness and that will do just fine. Pride has always been Obama and his followers biggest weakness. And Trump exploits is magnanimously.

    Wow. Just had my SECOND liberal friend tell me he’s voting Trump. He said the two things making him do it are:

    1. All this fake racism stuff is really upsetting him. (He’s a refugee from Afghanistan back in the 80s and he’s married to a Peruvian immigrant and they have a son that is a
    Mix of them). So he’s not some spoiled white rich kid with a self hate complex. He says nothing Trump has said is racist. He totally understands what Trump means when he makes statements about the likes of the Squad.

    If this guy gets it, we are in waaaay better shape then I even thought we were. Seriously.

    2. The open borders. He’s so pissed about what all the Dem candidates are preaching with this open borders crap. He says it’s insanity to just let people come here unvetted and just give free money to all of them.

    Yet Fox News has ALL dem candidates beating Trump. HAHAHA. These two friends of mine NEVER vote for any conservative candidates.
