Demographic Jihad? Virginia Muslim Doctor Tied Women’s Tubes Without Their Consent

Question mark? No, no question at all.

The details of this case are simply horrifying. One woman tried for years to conceive a child, but couldn’t. When she finally consulted a fertility specialist, she discovered, according to the Virginian-Pilot, that her “Fallopian tubes had been burned down to nubs, making it impossible to conceive naturally.” It turned out that her physician, Dr. Javaid Perwaiz of Chesapeake, Virginia, had tied her tubes without telling her was doing it or obtaining her consent. And she was by no means the only woman whom Dr. Perwaiz victimized in this way.

Dr. Perwaiz’s website is the soul of helpfulness, noting that he has “practiced in the Chesapeake region for over 30 years, providing expert and individualized care to his patients.”

Personally following each and every patient throughout their pregnancy, he is available 24/7 to meet all of your requests and expectations. His experienced office staff will individualize your care and coordinate your insurance coverage. They provide friendly and knowlegable service for all your healthcare needs. Same day appointments are often available.

About the good doctor we are told that he was “educated abroad,” with no hint as to where — it was actually in his native Pakistan, as the Virginian-Pilot notes: “Perwaiz has had a medical license since at least 1980, according to state records, having attended medical school in his native Pakistan and completed a residency at Charleston Area Medical Center.”

THE BIGGEST THREAT TO OUR FUTURE

A stupid, ignorant, indoctrinated, instead of educated population is easier to control.

We face a lot of threats, of course–asteroids, rogue nuclear nations, stateless terrorism, pandemics–but in my opinion, the biggest threat to America’s future is our unbelievably bad public school system. It is hard for those (like me) who went through the public schools decades ago to understand how much things have changed. Academic standards have collapsed; objective testing is out of fashion; corrupt left-wing unions have taken nearly complete control; indoctrination has largely replaced education. The result is that we are raising a generation of ignoramuses.

Michael Ramirez ties the public education fiasco to Veterans Day.

I think we are rapidly approaching a point where there is a serious question whether our population is too dumb to sustain a democracy.

The cease fire to begin the Armistice for the cessation of hostilities and the withdrawal of German forces to behind the Rhine took effect, for all intents ending the First World War.

Since 1954, when the name was changed from ‘Armistice Day’, we celebrate today as ‘Veterans Day’.
So, if you’re one of us who raised your right hand and swore that oath:

Salute!

 

Navy Submarine, Missing for 75 Years, Is Found Off Okinawa

It was hidden from discovery all this time by a single errant digit.

The mystery began on Jan. 28, 1944, when the Grayback, one of the most successful American submarines of World War II, sailed out of Pearl Harbor for its 10th combat patrol. By late March it was more than three weeks overdue to return, and the Navy listed the submarine as missing and presumed lost.

After the war, the Navy tried to piece together a comprehensive history of the 52 submarines it had lost. The history, issued in 1949, gave approximate locations of where each submarine had disappeared.

The Grayback was thought to have gone down in the open ocean 100 miles east-southeast of Okinawa. But the Navy had unknowingly relied on a flawed translation of Japanese war records that got one digit wrong in the latitude and longitude of the spot where the Grayback had probably met its end.

The error went undetected until last year, when an amateur researcher, Yutaka Iwasaki, was going through the wartime records of the Imperial Japanese Navy base at Sasebo. The files included daily reports received by radio from the naval air base at Naha, Okinawa — and the entry for Feb. 27, 1944, contained a promising lead.

The report for that day said that a Nakajima B5N carrier-based bomber had dropped a 500-pound bomb on a surfaced submarine, striking just aft of the conning tower. The sub exploded and sank immediately, and there were no survivors.

“In that radio record, there is a longitude and a latitude of the attack, very clearly,” Mr. Iwasaki said. And it did not match what was in the 1949 Navy history, not by a hundred miles.

Mr. Iwasaki is a systems engineer who lives in Kobe, Japan, and who became fascinated as a teenager with the Japanese merchant ships of World War II — four-fifths of which were sunk during the war, he said. Uncovering the history of those ships necessarily brought him into contact with records on submarines. “For me, finding U.S. submarines is part of my activity to introduce the tragic story of war,” he said. “It is my hobby, and also my passion.”

His work brought him to the attention of Tim Taylor, an undersea explorer who has set out to find the wrecks of every American submarine lost in the war. In 2010 he found his first submarine, the U.S.S. R-12, off Key West, Fla., where it sank during a training exercise in 1943. He set up the privately funded Lost 52 Project to track down the rest, relying on technology that had become available only in the last 10 to 15 years.

Mr. Taylor says that of the 52 lost American submarines, 47 are considered discoverable; the other five were run aground or destroyed in known locations.

Mr. Taylor and his wife, Christine Dennison, have been searching for those 47, and have begun to focus on the ones that were probably sunk near Japan.

Through his work in undersea exploration, Mr. Taylor was introduced to Don Walsh, a former Navy submariner who, as a lieutenant in 1960, reached the deepest point of any ocean on Earth, in the Mariana Trench near Guam. Mr. Walsh gave Mr. Taylor his copy of the 1949 Navy history, “U.S. Submarine Losses, World War II.”

Armed with the information in that book and Mr. Iwasaki’s discovery, Mr. Taylor and the Lost 52 team decided to make a run at finding the Grayback.

The Grayback’s last patrol was its third under the command of Lt. Cmdr. John A. Moore, who had been awarded the Navy Cross for each of the first two. His third Navy Cross would be awarded posthumously, after the submarine sent 21,594 tons of Japanese shipping to the bottom on its last mission. In all, the Grayback sank more than a dozen Japanese ships. The Navy considers submarines like the Grayback to be “still on patrol.”

Like Commander Moore did 75 years before, Mr. Taylor launched his mission to Okinawa this spring from Hawaii. When they reached Japanese waters in June, he and his team fought through mechanical and electrical problems that bedeviled their mission.

They were searching an area where the ocean was 1,400 feet deep, and their main search tool was a 14-foot-long autonomous underwater vehicle weighing thousands of pounds that Mr. Taylor likened to an underwater drone. It would dive to just a few hundred feet above the sea floor and then spend 24 hours pinging with different sonars back and forth across about 10 square nautical miles. When the drone returned to the mother ship, technicians downloaded its data, using computer software to stitch all of the sonar imagery into one coherent picture that they could quickly review.

“When you’re on these sites, you feel like you’re one breakdown away from having to go home,” Mr. Taylor said of the search area. “So every day is precious.”

On the next to last day of the expedition, the drone reported a malfunction one-third of the way through a planned 24-hour mission. As they recovered the drone, Mr. Taylor said, half of his crew started getting the ship ready to return to port, thinking that the vehicle was likely to be beyond quick repair. But Mr. Taylor began reviewing the images captured by the drone.

He quickly spotted two anomalies on the sea floor, and readied another of the ship’s remotely operated vehicles to visit the bottom. Unlike the drone, this one was steered manually from the mother ship, and had high-definition cameras.

In a matter of hours, Mr. Taylor was looking at the hull of the Grayback and, lying about 400 feet away, was the submarine’s deck gun, which had been blown off when the bomb exploded.

“We were elated,” Mr. Taylor said. “But it’s also sobering, because we just found 80 men.” The next day, Mr. Taylor and his crew held a ceremony to remember the sailors lost aboard the ship and called out their names one by one.

One of those names was John Patrick King.

His nephew John Bihn, of Wantagh, N.Y., is named after him. Mr. Bihn, who was born three years after the Grayback went down, remembers him as a constant presence in his maternal grandparents’ home, where a black-and-white photo of the submarine hung in the living room near a black frame holding Mr. King’s Purple Heart medal and citation. But in his family, the subject of his uncle’s death was “too sad to ask about,” Mr. Bihn said. “My mother would cry very often if you spoke to her about it.”

With no body to bury, Mr. Bihn’s grandparents, Patrick and Catherine King, memorialized their son on their own headstone. Under their names, Mr. Binh said, they had engraved, “John Patrick King ‘Lost in Action.’”

Mr. Bihn got a text message from his sister Katherine Taylor (no relation to Tim Taylor) two weeks ago, saying the Grayback had been found. She had gotten the news from Christine Dennison. “I was dumbfounded,” he said. “I just could not believe it.”

“I wish my parents were alive to see this, because it would certainly make them very happy,” he added.

In a video taken by the vehicle that surveyed the wreck, Mr. Binh said, the camera tilted upward at one point to show the conning tower, and a plaque reading “U.S.S. Grayback” was plain to see.

“It’s like someone wiped it clean,” Mr. Bihn said. “It’s like it wanted to be found.”

Allow our teachers to carry firearms

DEAR EDITOR:

We are fully aware of the growing concern for school safety against shootings. Schools are becoming one of the most targeted areas due to being gun-free zones. No one on the property is allowed to carry a firearm, regardless of their training except the police officer who sits at the front desk. One person is in charge to cover and protect the entire school against a shooter that can be anywhere in the building.

A change is needed, and it starts with who may or may not be allowed to carry a firearm.

Teachers throughout the school should be allowed the right to carry a firearm for protection of themselves and, more importantly, the students in their class. This right needs to involve detailed training, extensive background checks and also psychiatric testing to confirm these individuals are suitable for that responsibility.

Now, this should not be mandatory, but it certainly should be allowed for the protection and safety of our children. These mentally insane individuals are targeting schools because they have to get past one person at the front door, and then the devastation is up to them. With teachers carrying guns, the shooter will be able to be apprehended much sooner if a gun is pointed back at them and save a lot of innocent lives.

According to the National Rifle Association, there are over 95 percent less shootings in gun-friendly zones than gun-free zones. This information persuaded lawmakers in Florida to make it legal for a teacher to carry a firearm at school. Coupled with testing previously stated in this letter, teachers having the right to carry firearms is a very strong form of protection and definitely can be regulated and implemented in schools in this area.

Female Gun Owners: We Prefer the AR-15

In the aftermath of a recent Florida self-defense shooting, female gun owners argued that the AR-15 provides specific advantages to women for home defense, vehemently rejecting the views of gun-control activists who insist the firearm is unnecessary. 

Speaking with the Washington Free Beacon on Friday, five female firearm owners and advocates said the AR-15 platform offers several features that are ideal for women specifically. Robyn M. Sandoval, executive director of A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League, said the rifle is both more effective and safer for female shooters. 

“ARs are an excellent choice for women for home defense,” Sandoval told the Free Beacon. “The platform is relatively lightweight and easy to hold and customize so that the firearm fits her body correctly. Having a rifle that is the right size for the shooter makes it more comfortable to shoot and therefore more accurate and safer.” 

Many Democratic politicians, including 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden, have long decried the AR-15 as both dangerous and an impractical or unnecessary firearm for civilians, especially women. But the female firearm owners the Free Beacon spoke to rejected the logic of these pro-gun-control men.

“AR-15s are perfect for women,” Mary Chastain, a writer and gun owner, said. “Despite the size, they are lightweight and have hardly any kickback. This allows us to aim well and shoot the target where we want to.” 

Dana Loesch, a nationally syndicated radio host and gun-rights activist who has faced threats to her safety throughout her career, said she picks an AR-15 when it comes to home defense.

“I was always taught in training that your pistol is what you use to get to your rifle, and the AR-15 is what I choose to use,” Loesch told the Free Beacon. 

The customizability of the rifle is a big selling point for women, competitive shooter and trainer Julie Golob said. 

“The AR platform can be a useful and effective option for women when it comes to defending themselves and their property,” she told the Free Beacon. “Starting with the fact that the length of pull can be adjusted easily, unlike rifles with fixed stocks, the AR can quickly become custom fit to its user. The pistol grip, combined with quick access to the safety and other controls, makes this platform one a woman can confidently control.” 

“I can choose my trigger, hand guard, barrel length, grip,” Dianna Muller, a former police officer and head of the gun-rights group DC Project, added. “I can put a light, laser, etc. I call it the Mr. Potato Head for the gun connoisseur!” 

The testimony of these women contradicts Biden, who has repeatedly claimed that AR-15s are hard to use and ineffective compared with shotguns. In 2013, he said he had advised his own wife to use a double-barrel shotgun instead of an AR-15.  

“I said, ‘Jill, if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house,'” Biden said in an interview with Parents Magazine. “You don’t need an AR-15—it’s harder to aim. It’s harder to use, and in fact you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun! Buy a shotgun!” 

Late last month, a heavily pregnant mother did exactly what Biden warned against to defend her family. She used an AR-15 to fend off two armed men who were attacking her husband and daughter in their Florida home. 

The women who spoke with the Free Beacon disagreed with Biden’s assertions that AR-15s are not necessary. Loesch said she was competent with shotguns, but has found the AR-15 is simply a better option. 

“The 12 gauge is an excellent home defense gun, too, but the collateral consideration does affect my decision there (frangible ammo is an option),” Loesch told the Free Beacon. “AR-15s are easy to shoulder, lightweight, the low recoil makes it easier to maintain target acquisition, and the ergonomics are great. I can access everything without compromising a defensive stance. I also have more rounds with an AR-15.” 

Chastain also said that she finds the AR-15 easier than many other firearms to use.

“You can use it with one hand, which helps me,” she said. “My entire left side is handicapped, caused by brain trauma at birth. There are many guns I cannot use. The AR is perfect because I can use the functions with only my right hand. The lightness of the gun makes it easy for my handicapped left arm and hand to hold it.” 

The women said the availability of magazines with more ammunition capacity than the double-barrel shotguns Biden highlighted—which hold only two rounds—is a significant advantage of the AR platform, as is the variety of ammunition types. 

“Standard capacity magazines create a reduced chance to have to fumble to exchange mags under stress,” Golob said. 

“The ballistics of defensive ammunition prevent over-penetration, and standard-capacity magazines hold 30 rounds, which is more than a shotgun or pistol,” Sandoval said.   

The women who spoke to the Free Beacon stressed that, while they believe the AR-15 provides them certain advantages over other guns, women are more than able to become skilled with shotguns, handguns, or any other firearm. 

“There are pros and cons to any self-defense tool,” Golob said. “Practice on the range and training gun-handling skills, whether it’s a rifle, pistol, or shotgun, is key. I feel that the best home defense option for a woman is the one she is most comfortable with and that she can produce the best results.” 

Sandoval encouraged women to “train extensively on any firearm they choose to use to protect their families” but also noted AR-15 classes are one of the most commonly available—one of its primary advantages in her opinion. 

Some of the women also view the imposing nature and reputation of the AR-15 as a bonus feature. 

“I also like the fact that they’re scary looking,” Chastain said. “A man breaks into my house, I don’t mind using a scary looking weapon to defend myself.” 

“Ultimately, I want the meanest, most manageable thing I can get,” Loesch said. 

Jewelry store owner shoots suspects after robbery attempt

TASCOCITA, Texas (KTRK) — Delton Hayes looked out on the showroom of his jewelry store that was transformed in a matter of seconds by a 4 person robbery crew.

In the end, the store owner got the last laugh, despite the damage.

Mid-afternoon, a man tugged at the front door of the store, which is controlled by a security buzzer.

“I’m the one who buzzed him in,” said employee Deana Henson. “When he opened the door, and stuck his foot there, and was on the phone, I knew something was wrong.”

Moments later, four robbers masked with bandanas rushed the store and hammered away at the glass showcase.

What they didn’t know was that Hayes was watching from the office, behind a one-way mirror.

“They were smashing the cases, but they stopped as soon as I started shooting,” he said.

Surveillance video shows them entering, reaching into the jewelry case, and then running for their lives out the door.


Deputies investigating robbery, shooting in Stark County

Training, people; TRAINING. Remember:
#1 Is gun, is not safe
#2 When gun is loaded, front of muzzle is not your friend.

PARIS TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WJW) – The Stark County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a robbery that involved a shooting.

According to Sheriff George T. Maier, deputies were called to the 14000 block of Lincoln Street SE in Paris Township on Friday around 2:21 p.m.

A 22-year-old Paris Township man was being robbed by two men.

Authorities say the victim did shoot one of the suspects before they fled the scene. The suspect who was shot was taken to Mercy Medical Center where he is being treated for his injuries.

The second suspect, Caleb Alan Pugh, 22, of New Philadelphia, was arrested and taken to Stark County Jail. He faces charges of robbery and felonious assault.

Officials say the robbery victim also suffered what is believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was transported to Aultman Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

The Nazism of Democrat Gun Control

November 9 marks the 81st anniversary of the first day of Kristallnacht, also known as the “night of broken glass.”  For nearly a week, the Nazi Sturmabteilung paramilitary forces carried out a pogrom against Jewish-owned businesses, synagogues and properties across Germany and related territories; 267 synagogues and 7,000 businesses were damaged or destroyed, and 30,000 Jewish men were incarcerated in concentration camps.

There was another sinister motive equal to the anti-Semitism: gun control.

What many don’t know is, weeks before, the Nazis had disarmed the Jews whom they terrorized; they knew who had firearms because of a compulsory, pre-Nazi gun registry created a decade earlier.  The Nazis were so precise that businesses adjacent to Jewish-owned businesses were untouched; we suspect that many non-Jews wanted to help, but they knew that assisting would likely mean death or imprisonment.

After Kristallnacht, what did Hitler say was the justification?  Confiscation of illegally owned guns, in response to the assassination of Nazi diplomat Ernst vom Rath by Herschel Grynszpan, a 17-year-old German-born Polish Jew living in Paris.

In his 1971 book Rules for Radicals, Chicago community organizer and Obama and Clinton hero Saul Alinsky coined the phrase “the issue is never the issue.”

This is exactly what Hitler and Joseph Goebbels, Reich minister of propaganda of Nazi Germany, employed in their post-Kristallnacht propaganda.  Their “issue” was revenge for vom Rath’s death, but the actual issue was disarmament of a population they intended to murder or enslave.

Democrats Channel the Nazis

Thanks to Robert O’Rourke, the chronically failing candidate and DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex) Chia Pet, firearm registrations and confiscation are now cemented in the national branding and messaging of the Democratic Party and most of its 2020 candidates.  Democrats have always believed this, mind you; in the past, however, they at least had the decency to lie about it.

Now that the “Democrats aren’t coming for your guns” toothpaste lie is out of the tube, expect Democrats to eventually — sooner rather than later — present their Final Solution to the firearm question: full-scale criminalization of any civilian firearm ownership, irrespective of the type of firearm.  The Democrats’ voter base is rabidly and insatiably anti–Second Amendment.

The unholy matrimony between the Democratic Party and the Nazis has long been documented.  What’s utterly shocking is how little Americans know about this history.  The Democratic Party is America’s original hate group, and Democrats were Nazis before the real Nazis existed.  Just like today’s Democrats, the Nazis were also anti-white; in Germany’s case, the expendables were those deemed to be the weaklings in the pursuit to resurrect a mythological pure Aryan race.  The Third Reich’s basis for the Holocaust was the belief that certain racial and biological traits made one inferior or superior as a human being.  Sound familiar?  “I voted for Obama because he’s black”; “I voted for Clinton because she’s a woman.”

As South Florida residents, it’s rare to meet Jewish Democrats who know the complete history of Kristallnacht.  In Palm Beach County, 20 percent of the 1.5 million residents are Jews, making it one of the largest Jewish-inhabited counties in the U.S.  Miami Dade and Broward counties have a combined additional 200,000 Jews.

Republicans Side with Democrats

In the wake of every mass shooting, we wait to see what Republican lawmaker will run to CNN or The Washington Post to lecture us about “doing something bipartisan,” which is the peddling of peaceful slavery disguised as utopianism.
The most egregiously unconstitutional proposal, which is supported by many Republican politicians, and is law in Florida, is “red flag” legislation.  These laws allow police or family members to petition a state court to order the temporary removal of guns from an individual who may present a danger to himself or others.
In some cases, ex parte hearings are held, which allow judges to make rulings without all plaintiff and defendant parties present.  In some cases, the defendant isn’t even aware that someone has filed a petition against him until he receives a notice in the mail, or hand-delivered by a law enforcement officer.
Red flag laws don’t solely violate our Fifth Amendment rights; they also potentially infringe upon our First, Second, Fourth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendment liberties.  (We’ve written extensively about national and Florida red flag laws here; they’re too good to be true.)  The Second Amendment is where Democrat political and judicial activist tyranny most manifest themselves.  Yes, it also shows in their disdain for freedom of speech and religion, due process, and states’ rights, but the Second Amendment is the right that has long provoked the most anti-liberty bloodthirstiness among Democrats.

Rather than respond with more laws that infringe upon our guaranteed, God-given, non-negotiable rights, why is it that Republicans never respond to shootings with impassioned pleas to Americans to exercise their Second Amendment rights by arming themselves?  Because they’re petrified that The New York Times will accuse them of “having blood on their hands.”  Instead of challenging the debunked myths and conspiracy theories of Democrats and the DMIC, too many Republicans fall over themselves to let MSNBC’s audience know that they really do care about the well-being of children.

Thankfully, President Trump — once a supporter of red flag laws — appears to be changing his mind.  Good thing, too; had he continued to side with the Democrats and Tessio Republicans (inspired by Sal Tessio, from The Godfather, who betrays the Corleone family, a Tessio Republican is one who betrays his or her core voters), he would have undoubtedly lost millions of votes, and we can’t afford to lose any votes heading into 2020.

 

THE TRUTH: The Anti-2A Left Can’t Handle It

Last week, the Wall Street Journal published an op ed by prominent firearm policy researcher  John Lott Jr., and big shocker – the anti-gunners immediately got their knickers in a bunch.

Entitled Mexico’s Soaring Murder Rate Proves Gun Control Is Deadly, Lott very effectively spells out some sound reasons as to why our southern neighbor has become a mecca of murder.

“Another month, another record number of murders in Mexico” reports Lott.  “For the first nine months of 2019, Mexico had 25,890 murders—almost six times as many murders per 100,000 people as in the U.S.”

That’s insane.

Not content, however, to marvel at the sheer horror and atrocity of these numbers, anti-gun fanatics instead are shrieking at the Wall Street Journal for having the gall to give Lott anything other than print space in the obituaries.

Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts – head anti-gun dogmatist and Bloomberg’s political honey screamed through Twitter “Why would the WSJ allow John Lott to lie about gun violence in their newspaper?”

And she continued by doing what she does best – being flat-out dishonest – calling Lott a “shill for the gun lobby.”  She knows full well this is bogus but that hasn’t kept her and others in the anti-gun circle from spreading the lie.  On the Crime Research Prevention Center’s website, Lott responded:

“It is a false claim that Shannon Watts and other gun control advocates have floated before and I have responded before. Neither the Crime Prevention Research Center nor I have received a $1 for any of our research. We have that policy posted on our website. Shannon Watts also links to an attack on Dr. Lott in the left wing Vox, but that was also something that we had previously responded to. Not that Watts could respond to our responses, she finds it necessary to keep repeating the same links over and over again.”

In direct response on Twitter, Lott asked “Why is it acceptable for gun control activists like Shannon Watts to always push to keep others off the media – why can’t they ever provide substantive comments on the actual content of what they are criticizing?”

He concluded with Of course, neither Shannon Watts nor any other gun control advocates responded to my Tweets. As is typical, they attack and then move on.”

Lott’s article is well worth a read. He reports Mexicans had a right to own guns until 1971, when the constitution was amended to give the federal government total control over firearm access. In 1972 the government passed strict gun-control measures. registered, unloaded, in a locked container, and going from one residence to another.”

For decades Mexico has had only one gun store in the entire country, a military-run establishment in Mexico City. The store’s prices are very expensive, and the most powerful rifle that you can buy there is a .22 caliber.
John Lott – WSJ 10/21/19

Although this sounds eerily familiar as to what Californians face, Mexico has taken private ownership of firearms to a level far beyond what we experience.

“Getting permission to purchase a gun is a feat in itself. Background checks take six months to complete and require fingerprints and an evaluation of the buyer’s employment history. Only 1% of Mexicans possess a license to own a firearm.”
John Lott – WSJ 10/21/19

There’s nothing scary or inaccurate about anything Lott has written – in the Wall Street Journal piece or anywhere else.  That being said, it’s clear to GOC why Shannon Watts and those like her want to shut the John Lotts of the world up.  It’s because the more people know the facts, the anti-gun movement will be just like that Emperor…you know, the one with no clothes.

Nolte: Snopes Confirms Dems Tried to Impeach Every Elected GOP President Since Eisenhower

The fake, far-left fact check site Snopes accidentally confirmed that Democrats have sought to impeach every elected Republican president since Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Naturally, while confirming this, the garbage fire of fake news that is Snopes rated what is “mostly true” as “mostly false.”

The claim is: “Have Democrats Tried to Impeach Every GOP President Since Ike?”

Snopes decided to fact check this claim based on a popular meme that shows a black and white photo of Gen. Eisenhower above a caption that reads “INTERESTING FACT!!! Did you know Democrats have tried to impeach every Republican President since Eisenhower???”

Looking to debunk this mostly true claim, Snopes accidentally confirms that Democrats have indeed tried to impeach every elected Republican president since Eisenhower [emphasis mine]:

The U.S. has had six republican presidents since Eisenhower left office in 1961: Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Donald Trump. The claim is wrong on its face because Democrats made no effort to impeach Ford. While a handful of Democratic lawmakers have introduced articles of impeachment against five of the last six Republican presidents, in most cases these efforts weren’t taken seriously by the party at large. Nixon and Trump have been the only Republican presidents since Ike who have faced a serious threat of impeachment.

So, Snopes has indeed confirmed that Democrats have “introduced articles of impeachment against five of the last six Republican presidents,” the sole exception being Gerald Ford, who was not elected.

Ford was not even elected to the vice presidency; he was appointed by Nixon after his original vice president, Spiro Agnew, resigned in disgrace over a matter that had nothing to do with Watergate.

What’s more, Ford was president for only a little more than two years.

But there you have it — confirmation from a left-wing fact check site that Democrats sought to impeach five of the last six Republican presidents and sought to impeach every Republican elected to the presidency since Eisenhower.

Granted, the meme that claims Democrats tried to impeach every president since Ike is not 100 percent accurate. But after Snopes confirmed the meme was 5/6th correct, why is a mostly accurate claim hit with a verdict of “mostly false”?

I think we all know the answer to that one…

Because it is a damning fact that proves just how anti-democratic the Democrats are, what a bunch of sore losers they are, and Snopes is not a real fact-checking site, it is a Palace Guard for the political left.

So Snopes splits hairs between what it describes as “serious” impeachment efforts and efforts that never went beyond a lawmaker introducing articles of impeachment.

So what we have here is Snopes making a subjective opinion about what “tried to impeach every elected Republican president since Eisenhower” means — and wouldn’t you know it? — Snopes’s subjective opinion falls right into the category of aiding and abetting the left.

But by any objective, pro-science standard, the meme in question is MOSTLY TRUE.

Regardless, we should at least thank Snopes for doing the hard work that proves for a fact the following…

Democrats Have Tried to Impeach Every Elected GOP President Since Eisenhower…

Thanks, Snopes!!!

Another Family Attacked by Cartel in Northern Mexico–One Dead

Another attack carried out by cartel gunmen in Northern Mexico left one dead and a second wounded from a traveling family.
The attack took place during the early morning hours on Thursday, according to local reports. The victims were traveling in a pickup in a rural mountain community near the Sonora-Chihuahua border when gunmen opened fire on the outskirts of Sahuaripa.

Breitbart Texas law enforcement sources say a woman identified as Arcelia Gracia López, 30, and her brother Rodrigo, 40, plus another unidentified adult were traveling to the town of Yécora. While on the road, they came upon a group of gunmen who opened fire–fatally striking Arcelia and wounding Rodrigo. The unidentified adult was uninjured. The assailants then sped away in at least one truck.

The area around Sahuaripa is approximately 165 miles south from Bavispe, the site of the narco-terror attack that murdered three women and six children near a rural Mormon community.

The rural mountain communities along the eastern section of Sonora is known for the heavy presence of cartel activity with operatives patrolling unchallenged in convoys of armored vehicles with military-style weapons.

Joe Biden Might Have Just Proposed Human Hunting And Cannibalism As A Rationale For Gun Control

Much like Hillary Clinton before an African American audience, when she breaks into her fake accent in order to try to give the impression that she can relate to people that she’d ordinarily cross the street to avoid, Joe Biden lapses into faux-gun-owner-ese whenever he’s in front of a group that might include a few gun owners. Such was the case in this sparsely attended Biden speech in New Hampshire.

Aside from his lack of facility with some very basic firearms terms screaming that he’s a poseur, the argument is patently stupid. Shotguns are limited to three rounds but only for migratory game birds. For instance, my aging Ithaca pump-action 12-gauge that I’ve had since high school has a five-round magazine and a plug that reduces magazine capacity to two. They are limited in capacity because the phrase “sitting duck” isn’t just something someone thought up and the laws are in place to ensure a regular supply of game birds to facilitate the sale of hunting licenses. Deer hunting has no such limit on magazine capacity because deer are just a little bit harder to kill than geese and you might find that you have to shoot more…hmmm…frequently to hit your quarry.

Unlike human predators, only rarely do game birds invade your home and seek to kill you. When you do need a weapon for home defense, the last thing you want is some goof like QuidProJoe and his fellow travelers leveling the playing field by reducing your magazine capacity and giving the criminal a fighting chance. Humans are notoriously hard to kill, one of my platoon sergeants counseled me that “you have to shoot a man’s weight in bullets at him to kill him,” and if you are surprised by an intruder, you probably aren’t going to have time to grab your back up ammo supply to make up for the magazine that only carries two “clips.”

This is just another dumb idea from one of the least intelligent politicians in the Democrat field, and that, my friends, covers one helluva lot of real estate.

(Wisconsin)Senate, Assembly adjourn special sessions on gun control immediately after they begin

Anti-gun gubbernor calls a special session for gun control laws, which is in his power, but nothing though in that power concerning how long the legislature has to stay in session. Hee hee.

The Assembly and Senate special sessions on gun control legislation that Democratic Gov. Tony Evers ordered to take place Thursday both lasted less than a minute.

Evers called on lawmakers to convene Thursday at 2 p.m. to take up two bills that polls have shown have widespread support among voters. Earlier in the day dozens of gun control advocates rallied at the Capitol and packed into the Assembly and Senate galleries to witness the debate.

But it wasn’t until 8 p.m., after most of the activists had gone home, that Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, called the session to order with no other lawmakers in the room. He adjourned the session a few seconds later, avoiding debate or a vote on the gun control measures Democratic lawmakers had been advocating for throughout the day.

“I think if there are bills that would make sense to Republican legislators, that we would call ourselves into regular session or extraordinary session to take those up,” Fitzgerald said. “I think the governor knows the bills that he’s offered are not going to pass the Legislature … As they’ve been presented by the governor, there’s no momentum for them.”

The Assembly also began and quickly closed its special session immediately after finishing its regular session at about 9:30 p.m. Throughout the more than 8-hour regular session, Republicans declined multiple Democratic requests to break into special session, while also debating the merits of the legislation.

Evers called for the special session to vote on bills that would require universal background checks for all firearm purchases in Wisconsin and implement so-called red-flag laws, under which people deemed to be threats by a court must surrender their firearms.
