NUNBERG CLEARLY DRUNK In TV Interview –
Subpoena Defying Trump Critic Goes Down 
{ rickwells.us } ~ An alcohol addiction can impair the decision-making process overall, beyond the specific time frame in which one is drinking... Making bad decisions can become a habit and alcohol can make the results easier to ignore, particularly in the short term. But the rest of the world isn’t drunk and at some point the day of reckoning comes. Sam Nunberg, the former Trump campaign aide who is defying a subpoena by the Chief Inquisitor, Robert Mueller to come to confession and bring the records of everyone he’s had contact with in the last two years, seems to have reached that day. Alcohol may have played a role in his decision to challenge Mueller, but that fact is not likely to make things any easier on him when they go after him. During his CNN interview, Erin Burnett closes by referencing an earlier conversation she had with Nunberg in which they discussed that people in the White House were of the opinion that he may be on drugs or alcohol. Nunberg acknowledges that that conversation took place, and takes a nervous drink of coffee... https://rickwells.us/subpoena-nunberg-aide-drunk/

DACA Deadline Passes, 
Dreamers Blame Democrats
by Alice Greene 
{ punchingbagpost.com } ~ Last September, President Trump marked March 5th as the deadline for Congress to come up with a solution... to protect "Dreamers" after the DACA phaseout. Despite months of heated debate, Congress failed to agree on a solution.  Immigrants' rights activists and Dreamers gathered around the DNC headquarters in Washington on Monday to show Democrats who they blame for failing to meet the deadline. Protestors carried signs and bullhorns and blocked DNC members from entering the building. “If you won’t let us dream, we won’t let you sleep,” they chanted. Earlier that day, hundreds of protestors marched from the American History Museum to the Capitol to demand that Congress pass legislation granting them citizenship. At least 80 people were arrested...  http://punchingbagpost.com/daca-deadline-passes-dreamers-blame-demo...

Why Isn’t Media Asking Pulosi, clown-Schumer,
Other Sr. Dems To Denounce Farrakhan ?
by Jeff Dunetz
{ lidblog.com } ~ When David Duke, former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan announced his support of Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign... the mainstream media practically tripped over their underwear as the rushed to condemn the future president because it fit their false narrative that Trump was a bigot. Even after Trump renounced the endorsement, not only was he continually asked if he renounced the former Imperial Wizard, but most Republicans who found themselves questioned by a reporter were asked what they thought of Duke. Recently released pictures and videos, revealed that former President liar-nObama and other Democrats including mad-Maxine Waters (D-CA), Al Green (D-TX), Barbara Lee (D-CA), and seventeen other Democratic members of Congress had very friendly meetings with racist, anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. The Deputy Chairman of the Democratic Party scum-Keith Ellison had a closer relationship with the bigot whose hatred’s been displayed throughout his long career... https://lidblog.com/msm-schumer-pelosi-denounce-farrakhan/

RINO Kasich – Have We Forgotten The
Dreamers? Send Trump Gun Control 
{ rickwells.us } ~ How can scum-Soros-funded shill for the Democrats, John Kasich... continue to call himself a Republican and more importantly, how can any Republican vote for him? This interview shows exactly how lucky we are that he didn’t somehow manage to weasel his way into the White House in 2016. Jake Tapper asks him about reports that the White House is watching him as one of three potential GOP challengers to President Trump in 2020. He says it’s the first time he’s heard of it and with him leaving the governor’s mansion soon all options are on the table. He warns that he’s definitely going to continue to be a voice regardless of what direction he chooses. He then mentions immigration as an important area of concern, asking, “And by the way, have we forgotten the dreamers, the DACA, they young people who came here? They’re not even in the news anymore.”... https://rickwells.us/kasich-dreamers-gun-control/

Guns and the System SNAFU 

by Robin Smith:  Used in the military during World War II, an acronym emerged to sum up a situation that was error-filled yet accepted as normal. It’s had several iterations, a cleaner one of which we’ll use here: SNAFU — Situation Normal: All Fouled Up. That can be applied to before and after of the Parkland, Florida school shooting. The systems in place were supposedly operational and personnel allegedly trained, yet these folks unquestionably ignored red flags and abandoned protocol to produce the landmark failure surrounding the atrocity.

          The horror that occurred on Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday ended in the loss of 17 lives at the hand of a troubled 19-year-old. It has mobilized many to activism (legitimate or exploited) and has stirred public debate on many issues that permitted this horrific crime — some that are nothing more than straw arguments to avoid addressing the root causes. But under all the opportunistic political theater demanding gun bans and dramatic controls of constitutional Liberty lies failure. The failure of systems already in place.
          P
atriot Post readers have certainly learned of the abysmal failure of existing systems in place that should’ve prevented this young man from having a gun or from being inside a school. And you know that more laws can’t stop the manifestation of evil in the hearts of those intent on doing harm to others — those whose minds are afflicted with mental illness and a distorted reality.
          After a reported 45 calls to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, at least two specific interactions with the FBI and the fact that the troubled shooter, previously expelled from school, was also prohibited from carrying a backpack on campus, folks around the perpetrator had seen something and said something. Yet the authorities in place to implement systems of safety and enforcement failed to do anything. They failed to work within existing systems, rules, laws and regulations to stop crimes.
          These system failures, however, are truly a SNAFU — chaos that has happened before and, sadly, will happen again, despite the hashtag herald of #NeverAgain.
          In the Texas church shooting, where the NRA instructor with his own AR-15 and a good Samaritan stopped a man whose domestic violence and troubled record was not adequately captured by the Air Force updating his criminal record, a system failure occurred. Even one of the bombers In the Boston Marathon bombing had been brought to the attention of the FBI at least twice, yet they killed, maimed and terrorized with pressure cooker bombs.
          So the public parade marches on to stop “gun violence.” In the last few weeks, one proposal seems logical and worthy of discussion. Understand, however, that even if a law is passed in various states, it will only be successful to the degree of enforcement and observance.
          Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio responded to the public flogging he took at the CNN town hall meeting — which included him being equated to the actual shooter and lampooned as a prostituted puppet of the NRA — with several legislative fixes. The 2016 GOP presidential hopeful has announced his support of the “Stop School Violence Act” that creates school assessment and crisis intervention teams to work with law enforcement in identifying troubled students. Rubio also called for the expansion of background checks for gun purchases and incentives for states to fully report relevant information to boost the accuracy and usefulness of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which according to a November 2017 article has the NRA complaining of over seven million missing records to the FBI-run database.
          Among the Rubio proposals, Gun Violence Restraining Orders (GVROs) are based on common sense and empower individuals closest to a potential threat to intervene rather than waiting on layers of systems that, based on recent activity, have failed.
          GVROs are temporary court orders to remove guns or prevent purchases for individuals identified through evidence to be a threat, rather than limit the rights of a larger group. GVROs would require the petitioners to produce evidence that an individual was presenting as a potential threat (screen captures of social postings, writings of an individual or sworn testimony). The GVROs would permit due process in that the individual in question would be permitted a response to the evidence with the ability for an emergency hearing, should those circumstances dictate. It’s a high burden of proof before a local judge.
          These temporary orders are already in practice in several states — Connecticut, Washington, Oregon, Indiana and California — and 18 other states are considering them. Similar in nature to restraining orders and orders of protection issued in the cases of domestic violence, the GVROs would be a local, individually applied tool that would involve only parties suspected of being capable of harm to oneself or others, in contrast to sweeping gun bans.
          Caution, as with the other temporary court orders, must be exercised. A court order is effective, whether involving a removal of guns or an enforcement of a distance or other specified relief from an adverse party, if the named respondent follows the rules and observes the terms of the restraining order. While these orders can and have been effective, they can also create a false sense of security from individuals who, by their very nature, do not obey laws nor have the capacity to honor established rules.
          SNAFU will continue until and unless the authentic causes of violence are addressed, whether guns are involved or not. Those on the Left reject individual responsibility and Liberty and demand protections as wards of the state, regardless, that include gun control and the elimination of many facets underpinning the Second Amendment. Those on the Right know that fatherless homes, the casual and regular use of psychoactive substances that cause and mimic mental illness, the devaluing of life along with the glorification of violence in media and the plague of a valueless society that embraces politically correct approaches to law enforcement, mental illness and society writ large are key contributing factors to not only violence but so many of our societal ills.
          Situation Normal: All Fouled Up truly captures the failure of current systems due to the incompetence and timidity of those put in place to employ current law, regulations and standards. Demand leaders who lead versus those who agitate, pontificate and stagnate the necessary debate, legislation and governance to be a functioning, decent society.   ~The Patriot Pos

ALERT ALERT

 Gun Control Crowd Silent After Black Female
 Kills Three In Maryland Shooting 

A 26-year-old female stormed a RiteAid distribution center with a pistol this morning in Aberdeen, MD, killing three before turning the weapon on herself, according to police.

“Our suspect is a lone female suspect, age 26, who had a last known address in Baltimore County. She has died at the hospital from fatal injury, a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” Harford County Sheriff Jeff Gahler said.

The shooter has been identified by multiple news outlets as Snochia Moseley, a disgruntled temporary employee who also happens to be a black female.

Normally in the case of a mass shooting incident like this, Twitter would be ablaze with calls for gun control measures, inane nonsense about terrorism, labels of toxic masculinity and dismantling gun rights groups like the NRA.

But something is different about today’s shooting: it was not carried out by a white male, leading to deafening silence from the usual suspects in the anti-gun world.

Moms Demand Action, a gun control group partnered with far left Everytown for Gun Safety, has been silent except for a generic “condolences” message posted to its Twitter page.

The group’s founder, ever-outspoken Shannon Watts, has not said a word about the shooting on her active Twitter feed.

There has been nothing but silence from petulant David Hogg, face of the Hitler youth pre-pubescent gun control crowd, who rose to national prominence after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in February which killed 17.

Leftist activist Michael Moore has not weighed in, either (literally or figuratively).

Nor is cable news playing the story on repeat with live coverage, a “BREAKING NEWS” chyron, and gun-control activists on call as guests during every segment.

If all of these “activists” truly believed in the cause, shouldn’t the standard be the same regardless of the ethnicity and gender of the shooter?

Big League Politics reached out to Shannon Watts to ask her just that. She did not return our request for comment.

The FBI, the DEA, the ATF, the Maryland State Police, the Maryland Transportation Authority Police and the local municipal departments of Aberdeen, Havre de Grace and Bel Air are all investigating the incident.
