All You Need to Know about the Gun Debate in Two Charts

Via David

Gun “epidemic” the New York Times says? Well, we know they are data-challenged there, but for what it’s worth, take in these two charts from my old pal Mark Perry:

WHO’S batshit crazy again, now?

The Moslems are fanatics. The Left, on the other hand, are just nuts.
Over the last 48 hours, the unserious parade of clown leftists in politics and the media have jumped on every narrative rake in sight. They desperately wanted the shooting in San Bernardino to be a right-winger with an NRA tramp stamp gone mad. Instead, it turned out to be two Muslims who dropped their six-month-old baby off in order to pursue killing.
Here’s how the left desperately attempted to spin narrative after narrative – and will continue to spin in the coming days, ignoring the very real threat of radical Islam.

The War on White

Via Michael

Make no mistake people. Our liberal government, our liberal media, all support one thing…the complete destruction of white people!

Living in an area dominate by the Cut of Modern Liberalism. I get to see some hard thumping moonbat politicians up close. Liberal politicians are a lot like Muslims in that they will try hard to blend in when they are a minority. Progressive taqiyya allows the adherent to adopt positions contrary to the one true faith if that’s what it takes to win office. Bernie Sanders, for example, is pro-gun.

After Amazon pulled the book, Alex Jones’ InfoWars noticed – and published this article exposing Amazon’s book ban. Here’s a screenshot of the article:

ISIS has targeted refugee program to enter US, Homeland Security chairman says

Intelligence officials have determined that Islamic extremists have explored using the refugee program to enter the United States, the head of the House Homeland Security Committee said on Monday.

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) declined to go into detail about the determination, which the Obama administration has not announced publicly.

Yet the disclosure could add ammunition to critics of the White House’s refugee plans who have warned that the program is vulnerable to infiltration by adherents of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

“ISIS members in Syria have attempted to exploit it to get into the United States,” McCaul said during a speech at the National Defense University.

“The U.S. government has information to indicate that individuals tied to terrorist groups in Syria have already attempted to gain access to our country through the U.S. refugee program.”

GOP Legislators Push Plan That Could Replace Americans, Import 264,000 Foreign Workers

Via LH

GOP House leaders are preparing a huge appropriations bill for a vote next week — and top GOP legislators want to include a rider that could allow employers to replace at least 100,000 blue-collar Americans with up to 264,000 foreign temporary H-2B workers.

The plan would actually cost taxpayers billions of dollars each year, because the unemployed Americans workers won’t pay taxes, but would get unemployment checks and welfare aid from the taxpayers.

NYT: Americans With Assault Rifles Should 'Give Them Up For The Good Of Their Fellow Citizens'

Via avordvet
Image result for come and take it confederate
It is a moral outrage and a national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed specifically to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency. (So, having ones which kill slower and with more agony would do, correct?) These are weapons of war, barely modified (zzz) and deliberately marketed as tools of macho vigilantism and even insurrection. ( I agree with the latter.) America’s elected leaders offer prayers for gun victims and then, callously and without fear of consequence, reject the most basic restrictions on weapons of mass killing, as they did on Thursday. They distract us with arguments about the word terrorism. Let’s be clear: These spree killings are all, in their own ways, acts of terrorism.

It is not necessary to debate the peculiar wording of the Second Amendment. No right is unlimited and immune from reasonable regulation. (We don't need the 2nd, we have a Natural Right) Certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition, must be outlawed for civilian ownership. (Good luck) It is possible to define those guns in a clear and effective way and, yes, it would require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.

Mr. President, Stick It

Via avordvet

Oh please.

There was not one damn word of contrition for your failures.

Your administration failed to identify the terrorists, despite multiple opportunities.  The woman came to this country and was improperly vetted.  The man was here and apparently had multiple overseas contacts with terrorists, which I remind everyone is already legal for the CIA to intercept (on the other end.)

It appears that your failures not only included missing clear and discoverable information on communication but in addition there appears to be evidence that both money and training flowed from overseas.  I remind you that every single transaction that flows through FedWire or is cleared through federal facilities (and that's damn near all of them Internationally) is subject to your administration's surveillance.


In response your administration now wishes to (again) demand that we give up our right to life while it is under direct threat as a direct and proximate result of your failures.  You place this on the table in the form of further demands for "gun control" despite the fact that the two terrorists were only stopped because good guys had guns and they got to commit as many murders as they did because their victims were unarmed targets, incapable of shooting back due to lack of arms on their person. 

I have one word in response: NO.

Please help with a contribution


I bought donated supplies to Can Tho in 1993 and 1994 and have photos which I need to copy, scan and post.

Below is the letter I received today from my good friend, fellow USMC Vietnam veteran,  Del Vecchio. The contribution can be made at the website of the Vietnam Healing Foundation  ( ) : 

Well, here it is, December again, Thanksgiving behind us and Christmas coming up fast.  This is the time I send out my end of year appeal for support for the charity that brings badly needed help to the crippled old South Vietnamese veterans still eking out their lives in Viet Nam.

We are now supporting directly 100 vets and their families, and also providing partial support to 30 others who have come to us with desperate requests for some help.  Our work has become more difficult because of the police taking an ever worse view of us.  In February on my last visit, I was "busted" in Hue for the crime of giving money to people the top cop of that region doesn't like, and told to leave and never come back.  So my days of visiting the old vets to give them some real recognition from a former comrade and raise their spirits have come to an end.  This is a bitter thing for me, it was such an important thing to them to have someone come from the US to see them, and I was so deeply honored to be able to give that service.

But our work goes on, the men get older and sicker and need more medicines, and now every month or so another one passes on.  But we have a long list of those waiting for help, so we go on running events to raise some funds, and of course depending heavily on donations from others who understand the plight of these men and wish to help.  Please consider if you can contribute anything this year.  Our overhead remains under 5%, so you know the money you give will end up right in the hands of those who need it.  You can send checks or use PayPal, and all contributions are tax deductible.  (If there are others you know who might have any interest in this cause, please feel free to pass this on.)

Thanks again, and best wishes for a very Merry Christmas.

Marion Maréchal-Le Pen: the new wonder-girl of France's far-right

There is hope, after all. 

The niece of Marine Le Pen won her first election at the age of 22 and trounced a former prime minister, Alain Juppe, in a televised debate.

She is the new girl wonder of the French far right, a glamorous 25-year-old poised to break down many mainstream conservatives’ qualms about casting their vote for the Front National.
Since she was elected the youngest MP in French parliamentary history, aged 22 three years ago, while a second year Sorbonne law student, Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, niece of Front President Marine and grand-daughter of its obstreperous founder Jean-Marie, has had the fastest learning curve in French politics since Bonaparte’s.

Universities: Avoid Basically Anything Holiday-Related to Be ‘Inclusive’

Via Billy
Even certain color combinations are not okay. Universities across the country are telling students and staff that they should avoid basically anything holiday-related in their seasonal displays and parties — including even certain color combinations — in order to ensure “inclusivity.” It’s bad — and these three schools may be the worst: 1. Cornell University Cornell University has some pretty infantilizing guidelines for a school supposedly attended by our brightest and most capable minds. They declared that no one should hang mistletoe, and it’s not even for the reason you might think, (which would be, of course, because mistletoe pressures people to kiss which perpetuates rape culture and sexual assault and no one would be safe.)

2 White Men Set on Fire by Black in Baltimore (Different Angle)

Comment by Anonymous on Somali 'refugee' linked to San Bernardino terror a...


I saw this yesterday, but not the shot at the end.  Evidently the black man set the two whites on fire.

"When this clip ends it resets back to a view several frames before the actual start of the video. In this view you see the "black" fellow holding something that might be on fire (Molotov?) and the shirtless "white" fellow walking forward with nothing in his hands. Neither are flaming at this point."

For Sioux: Andrew Jackson: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

‘If only I can restore to our institutions their primitive simplicity and purity, can only succeed in banishing those extraneous corrupting influences which tend to fasten monopoly and aristocracy on the Constitution and to make the government an engine of oppression to the people instead of the agent of their will, I may then look back on the honors conferred on me with just pride – with the consciousness that they have not been bestowed altogether in vain.’
‘The preservation of the Union is the supreme law.’
‘Circumstances that cannot be controlled, and which are beyond the reach of human laws, render it impossible that you can flourish in the midst of a civilized community. You have but one remedy within your reach. And that is, to remove to the West and join your countrymen, who are already established there.’
Andrew Jackson lived a truly epic life. Born to hardy Scotch-Irish stock in the Waxhaws, a backcountry region in the then-disputed border between the Carolinas, the boy Jackson became a man in the brutal guerrilla warfare between the British, the Tories, and the Patriots. Jackson joined the local militia as a courier, and when captured by the British was scarred by the sabre of a haughty officer. His father having died before he was born, his mother dead from cholera contracted treating wounded soldiers, and his two brothers dead from battle and a diseased British prison, Jackson came out of the American Revolution an orphan. By drastically staking his life, fortune, and sacred honour on battles, horse races, and duels, Jackson rose from his humble beginnings to become the victor of the Battle of New Orleans and ultimately President of the United States. His name defines an entire age of American history – ‘The Age of Jackson’ – and ‘Jacksonian democracy’ is a term still used today to describe a sort of libertarian egalitarianism or populist Jeffersonianism.
