President Trump: If China doesn’t deal with North Korea, we will.

President Donald Trump has declared he would be willing to go it alone to restrain North Korea’s nuclear weapons program should China fail to change the situation, saying if Beijing won’t help solve it, then “we will” alone. “China will either decide to help us with North Korea or they won’t,” Trump said in an interview published Sunday in the Financial Times. He also said in this interview that he planned to talk with Xi (Chi) about that situation and use trade as “the incentive” to talk China into fixing it.

Investigate Obamagate

In the past month, we have learned:

  • The Obama administration openly shared classified information with political appointees about Donald Trump in the summer of 2015, and likely earlier. The citation.
  • Obama’s attorney general sought warrants to spy on President Trump’s campaign team last June, and was denied last June by a federal judge. The citation.
  • Obama’s attorney general sought warrants to spy on a server at Trump Tower last October and was granted one by a federal judge. Ibid.
  • The Obama administration spied on President Trump’s transition team. The citation.

This information alone — supported by mass media news reports — is enough to warrant a criminal investigation by the Department of Justice, as well as a civil rights investigation into Barack Obama’s possible violation of Donald Trump’s right to seek the presidency.

Oh, and if it hasn’t been well reported. Obama is still on ‘vacay’ in French Polynesia which just happens to not have an extradition treaty with the U.S.

Suicide bomber carried out St. Petersburg metro blast

MOSCOW – A suicide bomber was responsible for the deadly blast in the St Petersburg metro on Monday, a law enforcement source told Interfax, citing preliminary information.
The source also told Interfax that authorities had established the identity of the suspected suicide bomber and that the suspect was a 23-year-old from central Asia who had carried an explosive device into the St Petersburg metro in a rucksack.

Wanna bet on the bomber’s ‘religion’?

Senator Joe Donnelly of Indiana Becomes Third Democrat to Back Gorsuch

Indiana Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly announced on Sunday that he will vote to confirm Neil Gorsuch to be the next Supreme Court justice. Donnelly is the third Democrat to publicly support Gorsuch, following West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp—all red-state Democrats.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/cheats/2017/04/02/joe-donnelly-becomes-third-democrat-to-back-gorsuch.html?via=desktop&source=copyurl

“Red State Democrat” is shorthand for a Democrap politician who represents a state that voted for President Trump.
The most important thing to a sitting politician is getting re-elected and they know the odds aren’t in their favor, so…they’ll openly buck Schumer because their seat in Congress is more important than follow him all the time.

Resetting Climate Policy A Rousing Success

The Heartland Institute’s 12th International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC-12) was a rousing success. This issue of Climate Change Weekly is devoted, with one important exception, to highlighting some of the research presented at the conference.
More than 300 scientists, economists, politicians, and other climate-realist fellow travelers attended and/or spoke at the event, with more than 7,000 others watching live online. While shedding light on new discoveries in the fields of climate science and environmental economics, ICCC-12 was really focused on how the election of Donald Trump as president changes the dynamics for making progress on shaping a rational response to climate concerns and the need for expanded energy use.

https://www.heartland.org/news-opinion/news/iccc-12-resetting-climate-policy-rousing-success

“Global expenditures to ‘stop global warming’ already exceeded $1.5 trillion a year in 2015, or approximately $4 billion a day,” says Joe Bast, president and CEO of the Heartland Institute. And the “progressives” who are leading the global warming alarmist campaign and promoting the climate hysteria, he charges, are doing so “not to protect the environment, but to wage war on capitalism.”

Canadians fed up with being asylum-seekers’ patsies

A new Ipsos poll Wednesday commissioned by Global News shows over 90% of Canadians believe the Liberals’ approach to dealing with asylum seekers is in dire need of changes.
As Ipsos CEO Darrell Bricker put it, “For Canadians it’s not either a discussion about compassion or a discussion about security, it’s a discussion about rules.
“Regardless of your views on immigration in general, there’s an overall perspective among Canadians that rules must make sense, and they must be followed.”

Susan Rice Requested Unmasking of Incoming Trump Administration Officials

Susan Rice, who served as the National Security Adviser under President Obama, has been identified as the official who requested unmasking of incoming Trump officials, Cernovich Media can exclusively report.
The White House Counsel’s office identified Rice as the person responsible for the unmasking after examining Rice’s document log requests.

https://medium.com/@Cernovich/susan-rice-requested-unmasking-of-incoming-trump-administration-officials-30085b5cff16

Per the article, Rice had “legal” authorization (the President has the power to authorize, and Obama did.) to actually see the names of U.S. citizens who, by law, had to be kept “masked” under criminal felony penalties from being divulged.
So, she saw General Flynn’s name and from that what can anyone with two brain cells to rub together conclude?

Slugs Canes For Thugs.

Don’t mess with old people.
They tire easily, so aren’t apt to fool around with anyone.
At best, only if they’re feeling generous, and aren’t packing a gun, they’ll just beat you to a pulp with a stick, like this idiot is getting it.
Otherwise, they’ll simply kill you without batting an eye and dare the Prosecuting Attorney to take them to trial.

Oxford England child sex abuse raids: Seven men charged

Seven men have been charged in connection with a major child sexual exploitation investigation in Oxford.
Police officers carried out arrests on Thursday in connection with alleged sex offences against females which occurred between 2008 and 2015.

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-oxfordshire-39466980

A further 10 men were also arrested on Wednesday as part of the same operation.

SO, it takes from two to EIGHT YEARS for the British police to get their act together.
Of course, from the names of the majority of the accused, it’s clear why.

Let me put ‘why’ in a nutshell:
“Heaven forfend that our immigration policies should be seen as having allowed criminals to infiltrate our country. That might tend to make us politicians look stupid. So let’s cover it up as much as possible!”

In case you’re wondering, we’ve got the same type of stupid politicians here in the U.S. Because of that, it makes you wonder what they are sweeping under the rug.

Senate committee targets FBI Deputy Director in Trump dossier probe

Sen. Charles Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has sent a letter to FBI Director James Comey demanding the story behind the FBI’s reported plan to pay the author of a lurid and unsubstantiated dossier on candidate Donald Trump. In particular, Grassley appears to be zeroing in on the FBI’s deputy director, Andrew McCabe, indicating Senate investigators want to learn more about McCabe’s role in a key aspect of the Trump-Russia affair.

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/senate-committee-targets-fbi-no.-2-in-trump-dossier-probe/article/2619120

“The idea that the FBI and associates of the Clinton campaign would pay Mr. Steele to investigate the Republican nominee for president in the run-up to the election raises further questions about the FBI’s independence from politics, as well as the Obama administration’s use of law enforcement and intelligence agencies for political ends,” Grassley wrote in a letter to Comey dated March 28.

What To Do About Sanctuary Cities

The problem of sanctuary cities is no longer a social issue, it is now firmly a public safety issue – a public safety issue ignored by many cities.
In just one week in February, ICE tried to deport around 3,000 illegal aliens convicted or arrested for crimes. ICE only asked to have the inmates held for 48 hours until ICE could reclaim the inmate for deportation.
Fox News recently reported that ten cities released about 600 inmates, refusing to cooperate with federal authorities.  The top five are:
Los Angeles – 162
New York – 73
Kern County, CA – 65
Clark County, NV (Las Vegas) – 54
San Diego County – 44

South Carolina man, 18, arrested in Charleston

Two years after a Ladson resident was convicted on a weapons charge related to an alleged scheme to kill American soldiers, he was captured Thursday trying to board a plane in Charleston and accused of attempting to join the Islamic State. Zakaryia Abdin, 18, was taken into custody by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force at Charleston International Airport.

http://www.postandcourier.com/news/local_state_news/south-carolina-man-arrested-in-charleston-on-isis-charge-was/article_be07bebe-1631-11e7-9f47-23b4b38cf799.html

Now, get this:
Abdin, an American whose family is from Syria, was 16 years old in 2015 when he was arrested in York County and later sentenced on a gun charge to stay in a juvenile prison until he turned 21.
A parole board in May [2016] agreed to his early release, despite pleas from officials to keep him behind bars. The authorities said he posed a grave danger to the community.

The members of the Parole board need to put behind bars, this wanna-be JohnnieJihad needs to be sent down to Guantanamo and his family needs to be deported back to Syria.
Harsh you might say? Oh, definitely. Nobody seems to pay attention otherwise.

Slugs for Thugs

1DRT, 1 Shot to pieces. Not too shabby shooting.

Police have identified a man who was shot and killed early Thursday after kicking in the door of a Salt Lake City apartment.
Puleaga Danny Tupu, 33, of West Valley City, died in the living room of the apartment at 731 S. 300 East, police said Friday.
Tupu has a long history of mostly misdemeanor convictions for petty crimes dating back to 2002, according to a search of Utah court records.

http://www.sltrib.com/home/5124952-155/police-identify-man-killed-after-kicking

Brian Sant, who lives at the apartment, said he said he didn’t know the men, or why they picked his apartment to invade. But he said they picked the wrong place.
“You got veterans living around in these apartments. You don’t know who’s got a gun.”

Montana House advances bill that would prohibit Sharia law.

After a lengthy debate, with Democrats and Republicans disagreeing on the intent of a Senate bill to prohibit state courts from applying foreign law, the legislation advanced in the House largely along party lines with a 56-44 vote.
Senate Bill 97, carried by Keith Regier, R-Kalispell, doesn’t specifically mention Sharia law, but it was the only kind of foreign law mentioned during testimony in both the Senate and House judiciary committees.

Of course, what partei opposed it?

Democrats in Montana have opposed a bill banning the use of foreign law in its state courts on the grounds that such legislation would target Muslims.

It’s rasissss! Don’t you know?

Understanding “Stand Your Ground” (which the media seems to be incapable of)

Why is it so hard for reporters to understand basic legal concepts? I’ll give the mainstream media this much: It’s absolutely consistent in its inability to understand or explain use-of-force law generally and “Stand-Your-Ground” laws in particular. The most recent example comes out of Tulsa, Okla., where this past Monday a 23-year-old staying at his father’s home encountered three armed assailants who had forcibly entered by kicking in the back door.

Using A Single-Action Revolver For Self-Defense

By Sheriff Jim Wilson, Shooting Illustrated
Far from being antiques, modern single-action revolvers are extremely popular among today’s handgunners. In this day of higher-capacity semi-autos and double-action revolvers, it’s difficult for some to consider the single action as a viable choice for personal defense.

http://dailycaller.com/2017/03/31/using-a-single-action-revolver-for-self-defense/

Of all people I personally know, Jim Wilson’s article is well worth the read.
Clint Smith held a short session on using SA revolvers for self-defense the first year The Shootists Holiday was held at The Whittington Center at Raton NM. The Sheriff and I were both in attendance.

FOX: Trump Surveilled Before Nomination

A Friday breaking Fox News report on surveillance of President Trump’s team that began before he became the Republican presidential nominee claimed a very senior intelligence official was responsible and for the unmasking of the names of private U.S. citizens.
The report cited sources which also indicated that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) knew of the existence of the information in January, but one or more intelligence agencies blocked him, and there were only two locations where he could view the information that he called “very troubling.”

Can you say; “Banana Republic” ? I thought you could.

Police Group Wants Cops to Fire Warning Shots

One of the realities of law enforcement is that higher-level police brass are typically more interested in protecting their own power and advancing their own careers than they care at all about the realities officers face on the street….

You’ll note that three out of four of the reasons to justify warning shots are politically driven, making me wonder just who the International Association of Chiefs of Police is trying to protect.

Democrats Move to Ban ICE from Arresting Illegal Immigrants in ‘Sensitive Locations’

Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.) has introduced a bill that would prevent Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from arresting undocumented immigrants at “sensitive locations” that have been generally avoided under DHS policy.
What that means actually is that ICE, and also Border Patrol agents, will not be able to have surveillance or to arrest anybody in sensitive locations: churches, schools, hospitals, funeral homes, in weddings, in motor vehicle departments across the country,”

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/2017/03/31/dems-move-to-ban-ice-from-arresting-illegal-immigrants-in-sensitive-locations/

I first read this as wanting to keep ICE & BP agents from touching them in certain places when an illegal was being arrested.
ewwwwwwwww.
