‘I Felt Threatened’: Fox News Anchor Shannon Bream
Flees Supreme Court As Leftist Mob Grew ‘Volatile’ 
by Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
{ trevorloudon.com } ~ Fox News anchor Shannon Bream was all set last night to go live from the steps of the Supreme Court as President Trump nominated Appeals Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the replacement for Justice Kennedy... who is retiring from SCOTUS. However, things took a threatening turn as she was in front of the iconic building. Hundreds of liberals protesting the nomination were looking to get their violence on and Bream had enough sense to get out of there. “Very few times I’ve felt threatened while out in the field. The mood here tonight is very volatile,” Bream wrote on Twitter just minutes after Trump’s announcement in the White House. “Law enforcement appears to be closing down 1st Street in front of SCOTUS". Bream followed that with a second Tweet that left no doubt about the precarious nature of her safety, “Literally had to bail on our live show from #SCOTUS. Moving the show back to the safety of the studio. See y’all at 11p.” The left has been harassing and threatening everyone on the right. Some are serious death threats and it doesn’t take much to make a mob turn violent. We’ve seen White House officials harassed in restaurants and senators and Trump supporters have been hassled and threatened as well, both verbally and physically. Leaders of “The Resistance” movement, like Rep. scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters (D-CA), have called for more harassment of anyone who supports Trump. Bream spoke of the scene at the Supreme Court on her broadcast last night, “Last year, there were certainly protesters out there and there was definitely opposition to justice Neil Gorsuch upon his name being announced that night. Tonight, we saw something different. We did have a plan to have our show out their live. It got so volatile at points that we — we ultimately didn’t feel like it would be safe to do an hour of live television out there,” she said. And that is the state of America currently...Where were the DC police?

'Fortify Syrian border with an iron wall' 
{ israelnationalnews.com } ~ Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein (Likud) on Wednesday spoke about the dangers on Israel's northern border... At an event commemorating the anniversary of Ze'ev Jabotinsky's passing, Edelstein said, "Jabotinsky's legacy require us to fortify the Syrian border with an iron wall." "For dozens of years, the leaders of this State despised Jabotinsky and made him out to be a dangerous person," Edelstein explained. "Today, it's clear how wrong they were, and how important his legacy is." "Today, we are witness to the creation of a new reality on the Syrian border. We don't know who will control the area in the future, and how long the bloodbath will continue. Jabotinsky's legacy obligates us to fortify the Syrian border with an iron wall...  https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/248757

Video shows how bad scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters’ 
district really is
by Jerry McCormick
{ patriotnewsalerts.com } ~ A VERY damaging video is blowing up social media today and has a leading dummycrats-Democrat in panic mode... A two-minute tour through some of the streets in scumbag/mad-Waters’ 43rd District show the future of America if dummycrats-Dems are able to gain control of the House, Senate, and White House…It is hard to argue with the sentiments of the man that took the video after touring those streets...

GOP bill would make first-time illegal 
border crossing a felony, send sanctuary city funds to ICE
by Anna Giaritelli

{ washingtonexaminer.com } ~ Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., introduced legislation Tuesday that would reclassify a first-time illegal entry at the border as a felony instead of a misdemeanor... Her Zero Tolerance for Illegal Entry Act would change the punishment for those apprehended illegally entering the U.S. for the first time to one year and one day in prison, which therefore makes it a felony. Today, the misdemeanor offense comes with jail term of up to six months. The Tennessee lawmaker said she is proposing the change because she believes it would prevent would-be illegal entrants from coming to the U.S., and encourage migrants to apply for asylum at ports of entry instead of using smugglers to travel to the U.S.-Mexico border then cross between ports...   https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/gop-bill-would-make-first-t...

Ancient city gate uncovered in 
the Galilee may have tie to biblical King David 
by AMANDA BORSCHEL-DAN
{ timesofisrael.com } ~ A 10th century BCE Galilee city gate through which King David may have walked to claim a bride was uncovered by archaeologists... at the recently finished 2018 season of the Bethsaida Excavations Project, excavation director Prof. Rami Arav told The Times of Israel. Standing at 3 meters, “it is the largest and the best preserved city gate in Israel,” said Arav. Likewise, this year’s excavation provides evidence that Bethsaida, an Aramean settlement, houses one of the earliest towers incorporated in city walls in Israel, he said. “In the entire archaeology of the Land of Israel from 10-8th century BCE, there are no towers on city walls. Israelites did not have this feature. This is the first example of towers surrounding a city in Israel,” Arav said. Located north of the Sea of Galilee, Bethsaida is famously known as the site of Jesus’s miracle of the loaves and the fishes, as recounted in the Gospels of John and Matthew. Arav’s excavation is one of two dueling potential locations for this historical site...

Have Jordan Accusers Reported 
Abuse at Their Work Places?

by DOV FISCHER

{ spectator.org } ~ In the viciously cynical American political environment where we now live, it no longer is about quality and competence, skills and ability. It is about destruction of the opponent: destroy them, their character, their children, their family. Just destroy them. For example, let’s show pictures of a girl crying at the southern border when her mother puts her down for a moment — and then let’s tweet that we hope that the President’s child gets kidnapped and sexually abused. Let’s destroy that kid.

Let’s destroy Melania. She never hurt anyone. Seems a really decent person. Many women that famous, that rich — frankly that above-average in appearance — would reek of arrogance and self-importance. And yet she is so modest. She dresses modestly. She speaks softly and with humility.

Y’know what? Let’s destroy her anyway!

So you get a racist bigot like Chelsea Handler mocking Melania’s accent. A fair-minded person would think: “For a woman born in Slovenia near the border of Croatia, who basically does not even have to speak to make millions of dollars in modeling, she speaks English fabulously.” But Chelsea instead mocked Melania’s accent, something Handler never would dare do to someone hailing from south of our country. But it’s Melania — so let’s destroy her!

And, no, I haven’t seen Chelsea lately. Last I remember on the Chelsea front, she swore that she would leave America, move to Spain, and never come back if Donald Trump were elected President. He got elected; she stayed. So she not only is a bigot and racist, but also a brazen liar. Trifecta. She also promised that, if he were elected, she would “blow her head up.” On that she gets a pass.

“Let’s destroy.” Let’s check into their histories, do “oppo research.” There must be something. Nothing the past ten years? OK, look back another ten years. Nothing? Go back another ten. What was he doing in grad school? How about college? How about half a century ago in high school?

And so, it turned out in 2012 that 65-year-old Mitt Romney, when he was in high school — fifty years earlier — pulled pranks. Drugs? No. Sex? No. Even then, the guy was a good kid, a Mormon. Not a drinker. Not a smoker. Maybe, despite the Mormon ban on coffee, maybe once sneaked a sip of frappucino without inhaling? He was a teenager. “Well, if that’s all we got… let’s destroy him with that!”

And what was liar-Clinton doing as a teenager? Or Kennedy — any and all of them? Or Jesse Jackson? Or Elizabeth dinky-Warren? Or Kamala Harris? Kamala does not actually generate her interesting story until she starts consorting publicly with another woman’s husband whose powerful standing in California politics raises her station overnight.

And now the Seedier Media are going after Rep. Jim Jordan. They think maybe they got something on him from thirty years ago. Maybe he was not johnny-on-the-spot to know that a pervert doctor at the college wrestling team in Ohio was doing perverted stuff. Not that he did anything wrong. But that — thirty years ago — he did not know or believe or say.

This is so vicious, so base, the endless character assassination — leveled by hypocrites and phonies who, in front of their own very eyes, see the evil and villainy of the scumbag-Keith Ellisons and liar-Hillary Clintons, the liar-Bill Clintons and scumbag/mad-Maxine Waterses who should be ostracized and vomited out of the body politic.  scumbag-Keith Ellison is a Jew-hater who hobnobbed with Farrakhan and whose anti-Jewish snide remarks have been caught on tape. liar-Hillary is a felon. Her husband is the sequel to Raging Bull: Raping liar-Bill. And  scumbag/ mad-Maxine: at this moment in American history, suddenly that name will never be the same.

But all those crooks and knaves are fine for the dummycrats-Democrat liberals smelling blood in the water near Jim Jordan. So let us consider a bit more deeply — in a case where an underling knows about abuse, which Jordan did not — what it means to speak out against abuse at the workplace. What it means in real life to be employed as a grunt at a place where the boss, or someone a bit less high up, is abusive — sexually abusive, physically abusive, emotionally abusive. Many inevitably encounter something like this at some job, but we prefer not to discuss it. Well, may as well discuss it:

I have been an attorney at three of America’s most prominent and distinguished law firms. I had serious responsibilities when practicing law, handling multi-million-dollar complex civil litigation cases. The way it works at the large firms is that the partners and senior associates call on you or on others among your peers when they need staffing — for legal research in preparation for bringing motions, for drafting complaints or some discovery requests. Lots of research and drafting. You often become part of a team that may include two associates of different experience levels, all working under a partner’s or senior associate’s direction. Over a period of time, you eventually get to work with most of the partners in your practice section. And you want that. You want them to get to know you and your work, as you begin inching up the ladder.

There was a partner at one firm, a real pig. All the associates knew it. We talked about it over lunch. And we knew there was not a thing we could do about it. Go to the managing partner and report the pig? First of all, he probably already knew, too. But without the most hard and irrefutable evidence, you would just get yourself fired. Yes, yes, it is unlawful to fire a whistle-blower. World-class law firms know how to unload undesirable associates lawfully. Such a firm is not going to remove a major source of income, a rainmaking partner with a brilliant mind, simply because some associate with pristine principles and archaic notions of spiritual right and wrong has come to town. Interestingly, a few years later — long after my friends and I had moved respectively to other firms — word got back to us that, at a firmwide retreat at that old firm, the pig apparently was sitting at a bar with a female associate, drank a bit too much, touched or said what he should not have — and, to some degree, got punished. But only temporarily before being restored to his former glory.

I worked at another firm. Another pig, a different kind. This one did not bother people sexually, but was the most foul-mouthed viciously abusive curser. He would holler four-letter words up and down the hall. The legal secretaries tried their darnedest not to get assigned to him. Everyone knew his abusive mouth — because he shouted down the hall so loudly. I deftly was able to avoid working with him for more than a year. One day I got cornered: several of my cases recently had settled, my workload was light, and he needed an associate. It was my lucky day. I sat with him in his office and quietly clenched my jaws. He was cold, no personality. With this guy, cold was good. Cold, no personality meant no cursing, no yelling, no insulting. Interestingly, there was one moment of actual unabashed warmth and charm: as he was assigning the project to me, his desk phone rang. It was a client. Suddenly, life, charm, warmth. Even a giggle. The client conversation ended, the phone returned to its rest. And thenceforth back to the day the music died.

That is life in corporate America and in the whole world, from the communists in Ayn Rand’s We the Living to the employees at the National Broadcasting Company. Powerful people who sometimes get into their heads that they can abuse anyone who draws a paycheck from them. I encountered it a third time when I was one of three personal attorneys to a fabulously rich guy. An eccentric billionaire with a “b.” It was the easiest, cushiest job I ever had: a six-figure salary paid in 52 equal high installments, with a relatively super-light workload and an actual requirement to leave the office every day at 5:00 p.m. and a matching job requirement virtually never to bring work home. Beyond cushy. The Caucasian guy maintained an office staff comprised of lots of really pretty, young Asian women. I had my office, and each of the other two attorneys had their offices. There were a few other employees on hand: the boss’s “Girl Friday,” the front desk receptionist, the financial guy.

It soon became clear that the boss was a person whose attitude towards and treatment of women was appalling. One day, his Girl Friday quit, claiming he had overstepped boundaries. Two months later, one of the pretty Asian young ladies came into my office, also tears. The boss saw she now had begun wearing an engagement ring, and he ordered her to take it off: “The women who work here do not wear engagement rings.” She had been showing it off and now was devastated. Why tell me? My yarmulka: “I heard you used to be a rabbi. I needed to cry to someone.” And then a few days later another comes in crying: “The boss wants me to use a different first name at work. He doesn’t like my name, says it sounds too ethnic, and he doesn’t want me using that name at work. He wants me to tell people that my name is ‘Tiffany.’”

It is not easy to walk up to the boss and to call him out. You know you probably are going to get fired… or he will find a way, with someone else’s legal counsel, to create an opportunity to downsize your position at the first possible opportunity. So I went home, and I discussed the matter with the love of my life. In my prior marriage the conversation would have gone one way, but with my second wife I knew we would be on the same page: no amount of money ever will justify avoiding doing the right thing. If I have to give up the job, then I give up the cushy job. G-d will find me another job. We are not going to starve the rest of our lives if we do the right thing. So I took the steps needed to leave the job immediately. On my last day there, I told the lady with the engagement ring that, partly because of her ring, I was quitting my job. And I thanked her. I added that I would not blame her for doing so, too.

I know of a religious congregation. A woman in the congregation sought a pastoral session with the clergyman, and she reported that a married member of the congregation’s Board of Directors had forced a kiss on her. She was crying. The clergyman soon after learned of a second such incident with a second woman. The clergyman knew that, if he spoke out and blew the whistle, he would face a really difficult time with the management of the congregation. The congregants themselves were the most wonderful people, but the Board of Directors were a mix of the best and the least-best. The clergyman, after prayer and consulting with his spouse, reported the matter to an internal committee of the Board and demanded that the violator be removed from the Board and from all congregational honors. The reaction of the Committee was a mix of (i) “we will have to investigate it,” and (ii) “the allegations better be accurate —or else.” They investigated. The allegations were accurate. The violator was stripped of his Board position and all honors. And then, when it all calmed down, his friends on the Board and he began the quiet methodical campaign to implement the “Or Else” component.

That is how it works in real life. It happens to pastors in churches. It happens to attorneys at law firms. It happens to coal miners. It happens to stock traders. It happens in every industry, trade, and profession. It happens in the real world. And then there is Hollywood.

Meryl Streep publicly praised Harvey Weinstein as “god.” She did not know? And the clapping seals loved it, cheering and gleefully giggling at the Academy Awards.

Streep jumped to her feet, applauding Roman Polanski at the Academy Awards ceremony. She did not know he was a convicted child rapist? His very name elicited long and overwhelming standing applause, even from the guy at whose home the rape took place. Everyone stood and cheered — the same sorts who a few years later would stand and cheer scumbag-Robert De Niro for cursing the duly elected President of the United States. They did not know they were standing and cheering for a child rapist?

Ashley Judd, who enjoys historical significance as the first American whose mind has landed in a planet outside our known galaxy, detoured completely into an alternate zone of reality after President Trump’s election. But, while insanely trying to associate the President with incestual inclinations, never had the courage to tell the women of Hollywood about Harvey Weinstein. And she knew. She could have spoken out years earlier and spared other victims. But she was a coward. And she knew.

No one at CBS spoke out about Charlie Rose. No one knew? No one at NBC spoke out against Matt Lauer. No one knew?

Where were all the heroes and moralists and keepers of the public standards when the abusers were right under their well-sculpted-and-reshaped noses at their places of work, and they turned the other way for years and years to preserve their positions, get cast for movie parts, while holding their silence? And now they want to tackle Congressman Jim Jordan on the eve of his subpoenaing Rod Rosenstein or others at the Department of Justice because, thirty years ago, maybe he heard a rumor that he did not report in a different time, a different era? And he did not know.

It all is cynical and dishonest beyond words. Jim Jordan is a good man. He is a very honorable man. If we are going to go back thirty years to start digging up bones and skeletons, looking to destroy people who conducted themselves thoroughly properly for their time and place, though perhaps differently from what today’s standards would expect, let us take John Kennedy’s name off the airport sign at Idlewild because he fooled around with Judith Exner, if not Marilyn Monroe. Let us remove the name “Roosevelt” from the FDR Drive that runs up Manhattan’s east side because the man prevented refugees from Hitler from finding safety in this country, and he actually just-plain hated Jews. Let us revisit Al Sharpton’s role in instigating riots that led to death, and in advocating deathly violence against police, and in expressing so much hate against gays and Asians — so get him out of the public arena. Let us demand Kirsten Gillibrand’s resignation for aiding, abetting, and eagerly associating with the liar-Clintons — long after we all knew that liar-Bill would force himself on one woman, then another.

The campaign to destroy Rep. Jim Jordan is despicable stuff and nonsense. There is a reason that we have statutes of limitation and laws of repose. Otherwise, let us open a new category of litigation and start suing anyone we ever have met for anything that ever has happened. The eighth-grade kid who stole your cookie. The adult who knew it and did not whistleblow. The bus driver who laughed at you when you ran to catch the bus at age 14, and then closed the door just before you got in. The general practice family doctor at whose office you sought to be treated for symptoms of a virus, but who first told you that he wanted to check for an inguinal hernia — even though you insisted that you did not have any iguanas at home but were coughing phlegm and sneezing mucus.

If we had even one television news station dedicated to coverage of Hollywood and Broadway stars who knew of abusers at work but who never reported them, that channel would have enough to cover 24-7. Maybe when TMZ or “Access Hollywood” ratings start to slump.

So stand with Jim Jordan. He is a good man. And let him subpoena the records as Congress delves deeper and deeper into the bowels of the Deep State. And if you must get a daily fix on the politics of destruction and character assassination leveled against good people — now that Admiral Jackson has been defamed viciously, and the Trump Family seems to be enjoying a brief post-Peter-Fonda respite — fear not. The next campaign of personal destruction is about to launch: We now have a fabulous world-class United States Supreme Court justice nominee, with only two months available for the dummycrats-Democrat left and their Seedier Media to destroy a wonderfully dignified human being and perhaps an entire family.

ALERT ALERT

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.

TEA PARTY TARGET

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.

NJ.com 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.
