In South Africa, as reported by Tucker Carlson, but apparently by nobody else, the government is voting to confiscate land owned by white people. It sounds a lot like our own abominable eminent domain policy, but it’s worse because it’s not only racist, but the government isn’t even talking about paying for the land.

And what makes it even more vile is that is that our government subsidizes that corrupt government to the tune of 350 million of our tax dollars every year.

In the meanwhile, in France, recent presidential candidate Marie Le Pen will be prosecuted for tweeting photos in 2015 of people being beheaded by the ISIS scumbags. Apparently, defaming barbaric degenerates is now considered a hate crime in France.

Here in the U.S., President Trump, who has suddenly turned his back on the NRA and its five million members, has begun sounding like the tyrant the leftists have insisted he is by saying: “Take guns first, due process second.”

I know Trump has once again passed me over in favor of some other guy to run his 2020 re-election campaign, but I’m not one to hold a grudge, so I’ll give him a piece of advice and not charge him for it. Trying to sound like a liberal is not going to gain you any of their votes. Why would they vote for you when they can get the real thing by voting for Cory Booker, Elizabeth dinkyWarren, scum-Eric Holder or any of the other 20 goony birds who are already lining up to make a run for the nomination?

True to form, Sen. Chuck clown-Schumer has vowed to oppose one of Donald Trump’s judicial appointments not for any of the usual reasons about character or competence, but because he is a white man who would be replacing a black judge. Is it just possible that the Senate Minority Leader is one of America’s most unapologetic racists?

A second question that occurs to me is why, if clown-Schumer feels so strongly about the question of race, he doesn’t resign his Senate seat and endorse one of New York City’s many black politicians who are eager to replace him?

⦿   In San Francisco, cops fired 65 rounds in 15 seconds at a murder suspect and never hit him even once. The suspect finally surrendered. I suspect he was laughing so hard, they cuffed him while he was rolling around on the ground, holding his sides and trying to catch his breath.

Because this took place in San Francisco, aka the biggest freak show on earth, it’s possible the 65 misses shouldn’t automatically be attributed to poor marksmanship. Considering the employment standards in that most liberal of municipalities, where you get extra points on your Civil Service exam if you’re a transgender, an illegal alien or a transplant from another planet, it’s possible the cops were all officially blind.

⦿   Even Angela Merkel has finally reversed herself and admitted that there are no-go neighborhoods in Germany, populated by Muslims, where even the police are afraid to set foot. Naturally, she didn’t offer an apology to German citizens for rolling out the red carpet for a million barbarians, but at least now it’s possible that her cowardly colleagues in France and Sweden might come clean about similar conditions in their own countries.

⦿   It seems that Barbra Streisand, yet another celebrity with more money than brains, has spent $100,000 to clone two replicas of her late dog Samantha. It’s rumored that when her husband James Brolin was asked if he would consider spending $50,000 cloning Barbra if she died before he did, he said: “Would I have to spend an additional $50,000 to clone her nose?”

⦿   After years of liberals forcing conservative cities and states to capitulate on social issues or face repercussions when it came to conventions and other tourist dollars, I was delighted to hear that Georgia lawmakers voted to deprive Delta of a $50 million fuel tax exemption after the carrier decided to deny members of the NRA a discount on their airline tickets.

I’ve heard arguments against the legislative action, but I remain unpersuaded. It made my day to hear that there was finally a price to be paid by a company for caving in to pressure from the Left.

⦿   When word got out that the Department of Housing and Urban Development had decided to use 31,000 of our tax dollars on a dining room set, they quickly had to cancel the order. Although they didn’t explain why the Department needed the expensive furniture or whose urban dwelling was being developed, the underlings assured the media that the head man, Ben Carson, knew nothing about it.

If he really didn’t know anything about it, and it wasn’t an anniversary gift for Mrs. Carson, perhaps he’s the wrong man for the job. If he did know about it and failed to do anything about the shopping spree, he is definitely the wrong man for the job. He might even have to be replaced by a white man.

⦿   I’m not sure how I feel about the tariffs President Trump is proposing for steel and aluminum imports. The notion that China is destroying the two American industries is questionable because China is only our third biggest supplier of aluminum and our 12th biggest supplier of steel. It seems like a risky gamble to protect the two industries from foreign competitors when it not only means that a great many other countries will retaliate by placing tariffs on our industrial and agricultural products, but the American consumer will be paying more for everything made of steel or aluminum.

A counter argument I heard suggested that the problem isn't only with the amount of metals that China dumps on us, but the amount they dump on other countries who then turn around and dump it on us.

What I do know is that during the campaign, Trump declared war on the money-manipulating Chinese, but since getting elected, he seems to have become an appeaser of that tyranny in the rather naïve hope they would rein in North Korea. Right, just the way that Russia has reined in Syria.

⦿   My wife Yvonne observed that Facebook is today’s version of an earlier time’s diaries, which were generally kept under lock and key by girls and young women. In them, they would inscribe their secret thoughts and desires.

Only now, there are no secrets, so dumb people blab everything on Facebook or in tweets in the hope that thousands or even millions of strangers -- among whom will inevitably be cyberbullies, potential employers and sexual deviants -- will be dying to know everything about them, including what they had for lunch and the color of their undies.

⦿  My friend Dick Barry, who hails from Arlington, Texas, where men are men and women also pack six-shooters, sent along an item that had photos of two guns. The first, which was labeled a teacher’s gun, was a standard weapon. The second, which was labeled a librarian’s gun, had a silencer attached.

Newt Says What The Rest Of Us Are Thinking:
It’s Time To Throw Peter Strzok In Jail

Disgraced FBI special agent Peter Strzok, a senior member of the bureau who gained notoriety in recent months over his anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, was grilled for nearly 10 hours during a joint congressional committee hearing on Thursday.

At issue was Strzok’s anti-Trump texts to former FBI lawyer and lover Lisa Page that coincided with his leading of the investigations into both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server scandal and the alleged Trump/Russia 2016 election collusion, as well as his involvement in the subsequent Robert Mueller special counsel probe.

The hearing proved to be a heated battle, as Strzok displayed an arrogant smugness in defiance of pointed questions from Republicans that he largely danced around, while Democrats sought to upend and undermine the entire hearing with a plethora of interruptions, parliamentary maneuvers and outright praise for the man who helped let Clinton off the hook while ferociously targeting Trump.

Former House speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was less than impressed with Strzok’s performance and cooperation in the hearing and suggested during an appearance on Fox Business that the FBI agent should be held in contempt of Congress.

“I think they have to move to hold him in contempt and throw him in jail,” Gingrich said of Congress and Strzok.

“This is a person who is willfully standing up and refusing to appear as a congressional witness and he was a government employee at the time,” he continued.

“He has every obligation to inform the legislative branch, and I don’t think they have any choice except to move a motion of contempt because he is fundamentally — and so is his girlfriend (Page) — they’re both fundamentally in violation of the entire constitutional process,” he added.

Page had been subpoenaed to appear before Congress on Wednesday but refused to appear, saying she’d been unable to review relevant documents prior to the scheduled hearing, a closed-door hearing that has since been rescheduled for Friday.

Gingrich was not the only one who thought Strzok deserved to be held in contempt of Congress, as House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte informed Strzok that he remained at risk of such during the hearing, according to The Daily Caller.

That warning from Goodlatte came after Strzok had refused to answer a straightforward question posed by House Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy, regarding how many people Strzok had personally interviewed between a specific set of dates in relation to the Clinton email investigation.

“Mr. Strzok, please be advised that you can either comply with the committee’s direction to answer the question or refuse to do so,” Goodlatte stated. “The latter of which will place you in risk of a contempt citation and potential criminal liability. Do you understand that? The question is directed to the witness.”

Strzok still refused to answer, citing instructions received from his counsel and the FBI to not answer certain questions on certain topics.

Goodlatte replied, “Mr. Strzok, in a moment we will continue with the hearing, but based on your refusal to answer the question, at the conclusion of the day we will be recessing the hearing and you will be subject to recall to allow the committee to consider proceeding with a contempt citation.”

It is unclear if Goodlatte and the committee ultimately did consider a contempt citation for Strzok following the contentious hearing, nor is it clear if Page will be held in contempt for blowing off her subpoenaed appearance on Wednesday.

Hopefully Congress will follow through on the threats of contempt followed by actual jail time against Strzok and Page in response to their uncooperative behavior and failure to appear when subpoenaed, if only to ensure that future witnesses called before Congress for sensitive or contentious hearings don’t think they can get away with the same sort of behavior.


Cops Sent To Seize Veteran’s Guns Without A Warrant, He Refused To Turn Them Over

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” says Leonard Cottrell, after successfully staving off law enforcement and the courts from confiscating his firearms. Cottrell, an Iraq War veteran, was at work when he received a phone call from his wife. The cops were there, busting in to take his guns away. It all started after a casual conversation his son had at school.

Ammoland reports:

Police said their visit was sparked by a conversation that Leonard Cottrell Jr.’s 13-year-old son had had with another student at the school. Cottrell said he was told his son and the other student were discussing security being lax and what they would have to do to escape a school shooting at Millstone Middle School.

The conversation was overheard by another student, who went home and told his parents, and his mother panicked. The mom then contacted the school, which contacted the State Police, according to Cottrell.

The visit from the troopers came around 10 p.m. on June 14, 2018, Cottrell said, a day after Gov. Phil Murphy signed several gun enforcement bills into law.

After several hours, Cottrell said police agreed not to take the guns but to allow him to move them to another location while the investigation continued.

“They had admitted several times that my son made no threat to himself or other students or the school or anything like that,” he said.

Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was “not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing.”

The troopers searched his son’s room and found nothing, Cottrell said.

“To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” he said. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

“In the Garden State, the usual approach is to confiscate first and ask questions later, and victims of this approach often don’t know their rights. ‎In this case, the victim pushed back and confiscation was avoided — but the circumstances surrounding the incident are outrageous. A student expressing concern over lack of security is not a reason to send police to the student’s home — but it might be a reason to send police to the school to keep students and teachers safe” said Scott L. Bach, executive director of the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs and a member of the NRA board of directors. adds:

Cottrell, a disabled U.S. Army veteran who served three tours during “Operation Iraqi Freedom,” owns a shotgun and a pistol. He has all the correct permits to own the firearms, he said, and predominately uses the shotgun to hunt.

He said his wife allowed the officers to enter the home, and with her permission, they searched his son’s room — but they did not find any weapons, he said. The officers, he said, didn’t have a warrant but still wanted to take his guns. Cottrell wouldn’t let them.

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” he said Thursday.

He said the attempted seizure resulted because of a new law Gov. Phil Murphy signed into law that makes it easier for police to confiscate guns when someone in the state poses a threat to themselves or others. The law is part of a broader statewide effort to make New Jersey’s gun laws even tougher amid the national outcry for more gun control in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Cottrell said the officers “danced around the issue” when he confronted them about the new law.

A New Jersey State Police spokesman declined to answer questions about whether this incident had anything to do with the new gun laws.

In an email, Sgt. First Class Jeff Flynn said, “Troopers responded to Mr. Cottrell’s residence in reference to the report of a possible school threat. Based on their investigation, it was determined that Mr. Cottrell’s weapons did not need to be seized.”

David Codrea, writing for Ammoland, further added:

To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” New Jersey gun owner and Army veteran Leonard Cottrell Jr. told New Jersey 101.5 after a June 14 visit from State Police,. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

Cottrell was recalling state troopers showing up at his door to confiscate firearms after his 13-year-old son was overheard discussing lax school safety with a friend.

Indoctrinated by a pervasive snitch culture — one that never seems to deter the blatantly obvious demonic nutjobs — the eavesdropping student told his parents, who told school administrators, who in turn called the cops. (Note “If you see something, say something” carries risks of its own – if you report the wrong person, you could end up smeared as a “hater.”)

“Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was ‘not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing,’” the report continued. Despite that, his home is now a “gun free zone” and that has been publicized by the media. He has, in fact, willingly ceded those rights, and by his own words in order to make authorities “happy.”

Before judging him for that, consider the environment that is New Jersey. Then consider the overwhelming force the state can bring to bear, and its predisposition to using it, especially if it’s to enforce citizen disarmament. It’s easy to anonymously declare “Molon Labe” on the internet. In meatspace, resistance is more effective when the aggressor doesn’t get to dictate the time and place, especially if that place is your home and you have family inside.

Appeasing gun-grabbers, generally couched as “compromise,” is impossible. It’s like throwing a scrap of flesh to a circling pack of jackals and expecting them to be sated and leave you alone — instead of sensing opportunity and fear, and moving in closer.
