Nation That Calls Trump ‘Hitler’ Demands He Take All Guns Away

From The Babylon Bee.

U.S.—Sources across the United States confirmed Friday that the cross-section of citizenry which has been comparing President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler for two years has begun to demand that he take guns away from all citizens at once.

Passionate protests and rallies recently all demanded the “dangerous madman” confiscate everybody’s firearms.

“Trump is a dangerous tyrant, so he should be the only one with deadly weapons!” one woman screamed at an anti-gun protest. “People obviously can’t be trusted with them. Instead, we need to entrust them only to the most powerful man on the planet, who has proven time and time again he’s no better than history’s most violent dictators and has the potential to become an iron-fisted totalitarian!”

Holding up a variety of colored signs and chanting various slogans, the protesters simultaneously upheld the ideas that Donald Trump is a raving lunatic and that any citizens who wish to own a firearm in order to protect themselves and their families have “blood on their hands.”

At publishing time, the nation had continued to blame gun owners for any shooting that occurs in the United States, while absolving Planned Parenthood of killing millions upon millions of babies.

Talk Is Cheap

Unless you’re a sleazy politician like Obama or the Clintons. Then they pay you six figures to stand up and read a non-stop string of blatant lies off a teleprompter, even though they know you’re incapable of speaking the truth. It’s not in your best interest.

Obama Reportedly Plans On Skipping Billy Graham Memorial Service And Funeral

Billy Graham

Former President Barack Obama is not planning to attend memorial services for the late evangelist Rev. Billy Graham this week.

Former President George W. Bush is paying his respects to Graham, known as the pastor to presidents, Monday afternoon at his library in North Carolina. Former President Bill Clinton will visit Tuesday to honor Graham’s memory.

[CtH: I read elsewhere that Carter sent regrets and that Trump and Pence will be at the funeral. I can’t find anything recent about Bush Sr.’s health, but I doubt he’s well enough to travel at this point.]

Opinion Laundering in Parkland’s Wake

In the aftermath of the Parkland massacre, student activists achieved remarkable levels of fame almost instantaneously: Emma González already has nearly 1 million Twitter followers, for instance, and her fellow student David Hogg has more than 300,000. Both have become familiar faces on television.

Policy proposals aren’t the real aim of the anti-gun crowd. What they’re thinking is: We must strike a blow against gun culture. We must punish gun owners in general by doing something that annoys them. This is the Democratic obverse of Trumpian bully culture: It’s public policy reduced to public shaming. It’s insult theater. The politics of id.

Hillary Clinton blasts Trump: Abortion is a ‘human right’

“Women’s rights are human rights,” Clinton tweeted. “That was a radical idea back in 1995. It shouldn’t still be two decades later.”

Clinton was sharing a Politico report on a State Department order to cut back portions in a forthcoming annual report on global human rights.

Trump Admin Cuts Planned Parenthood Funding, Will Shift Sex-Ed Funds to Abstinence Programs
Planned Parenthood already hates the Trump administration, but they will hate it even more when they discover that the administration will be diverting sex-education funds to abstinence programs.

According to LifeNews, “the Title X grant application, released Friday, prioritizes the types of programs that the abortion chain Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups do not offer.” The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will offer $260 million in Title X grants to health care providers that meet their standards

Lawsuit: 100,000 noncitizens registered to vote in Pennsylvania
THIS IS HOW LIBERALS PLAN TO TURN THIS COUNTRY INTO A TOTALITARIAN STATE.

More than 100,000 noncitizens are registered to vote in Pennsylvania alone, according to testimony submitted Monday in a lawsuit demanding the state come clean about the extent of its problems.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation, which has identified similar noncitizen voting problems in studies of Virginia and New Jersey, said Pennsylvania officials have admitted noncitizens have been registering and voting in the state “for decades.”

But state officials have stonewalled PILF requests for access to the data that could expose the problem, the group says in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Harrisburg.

Celebrate Chelsea Clinton’s Birthday With A Look Back At Her Greatest Achievements
THAT SHOULDN’T TAKE LONG.

Chelsea was so smart, she was allowed to skip third grade! In her public elementary school in Little Rock, Arkansas, Chelsea was deemed too intellectually elite for third grade, and she was allowed to go straight from second to fourth grade.  I guess social studies and long division were just too easy!

Chelsea was hired by NBC news as a special correspondent in 2011!  In November 2011, Chelsea was brought on to work as a “special correspondent” for NBC News where she made $600,000 annually. She worked on featured stories for NBC’s “Rock Center with Brian Williams” until the show was canceled in 2013. She then worked on featured stories for “NBC Nightly News.”

CNN Analyst Reveals That Gun Control Isn’t the Goal… Total Removal of 2nd Amendment Is Their Wish

Whenever the gun control debate heats up and Second Amendment supporters maintain they won’t support any sort of gun ban, some on the left condescendingly insist “Nobody is talking about taking your guns.”

But that reassurance rings hollow when other voices on the left let slip that, yes indeed, they do want to ban guns, nearly all of them to be specific, as was revealed by the wild cheering of the crowd at CNN’s anti-gun rally of hate when Sen. Marco Rubio cautioned that an “assault weapons” ban would include virtually all semi-automatic firearms.

CtH: Never EVER forget that the FIRST THING totalitarian governments ALWAYS DO is DISARM CITIZENS.

The Cowards of Broward County

Among the worst actors in CNN’s disgraceful play was Scott Israel, the partisan Democrat political hack masquerading as the sheriff in Broward County where the Parkland massacre took place. Israel engaged in a ridiculous back-and-forth with National Rifle Association spokeswoman (and stand-in for Emmanuel Goldstein) Dana Loesch, in which Israel offered one of the stupidest and most demagogic statements in recent memory, notable mostly for its having captured the zeitgeist of the gun-grabbing Left in the aftermath of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School carnage.

When the shooting began, Israel’s armed deputy hid outside in safety and remained there.

But if the good sheriff — a political cat — had explained that business about his frightened deputy, he’d have ruined the show. So he kept his mouth shut.

Not one but four sheriff’s deputies hid behind cars instead of storming Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, Fla., during Wednesday’s school shooting, police claimed Friday — as newly released records revealed the Broward County Sheriff’s Office had received at least 18 calls about the troubled teen over the past decade.

Mika Brzezinski: Melania, Ivanka Are a ‘Joke’ — ‘These Women Have Been Given Fake Jobs’

CtH: Not at ALL like the “jobs” Chelsea Clinton has been paid mucho bucks to “do” at NBC and the Clinton Foundation. Or, you know, like what Michelle Obama did when she was FLOTUS.  :0P““`

I GUESS A FAMOUS LAST NAME AND SOME COSMETIC SURGERY CAN TURN YOU INTO AN EXPERT ON SOMETHING OR OTHER.

Brzezinski said, “It’s not like she is transportation secretary. She came in there to fight for women, and she can’t handle a question like that. The whole thing clearly is a joke, an utter joke just like Melania’s role on cyberbullying, which I think is an insult to women completely.”  She continued, “Furthermore insulting to women — these women have been given fake jobs.”

CtH: Let’s talk about Michelle’s role on military families and school lunches, shall we?

Muslim Women Win $180K After they Were Forced to Remove Hijabs for Mugshot

CtH: The End Times cometh.

Three Muslim women won $180,000 for their suffering after they were arrested and forced to remove their hijabs for their mugshots.

One of the women, Mervat Soliman, 53, was arrested after a tussle with mother-daughter neighbors over a parking spot near her Glendale home in January 2015.

The Muslim women said they felt exposed and violated after they were forced to remove their hijabs for mugshots.

SHOCKER: Companies Pulling NRA Support Totally Backfires

Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Norton Antivirus, LifeLock, MetLife, Alamo, National Car Rental and SimpliSafe cut ties with the NRA in response to the Feb. 14 Parkland, Fla., high school shooting that claimed the lives of 17 individuals.

Morning consult surveyed 2,201 adults from Feb. 23-25 regarding their views of each company. The polling agency asked each respondent if they had a “favorable or unfavorable” view of each company before and after they were informed of the company’s choice to cut ties with the NRA.

Bits and Bytes

Since the 2016 election, Facebook, Google and Twitter have been punishing conservative websites and pundits by cutting their social media traffic, blocking their stories from going viral, demonetizing videos, and shutting down accounts. This month, Google banned a YouTube channel called Bombards Body Language, because they didn’t like her analysis of David Hogg’s anti-NRA speech.

The Supreme Court Issues Its Decision On Trump’s DACA Appeal

In an extraordinary procedural move, the government appealed directly to the Supreme Court. Under normal procedure, the government would challenge Alsup’s order at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a principle antagonist to Trump’s ambitions throughout his presidency. Solicitor General Noel Francisco, the government’s Supreme Court lawyer, argued the case required the tribunal’s urgent attention, as Alsup’s decision “requires the government to sanction indefinitely an ongoing violation of federal law being committed by nearly 700,000 aliens.”
The justices rarely grant such requests.

Terry McAuliffe: ‘Who Better To Take On Trump Than Me?’

THIS IS THE MOST VICIOUS PUNK IN POLITICS
Of course, we’re barely into Year 2 of President Trump, but that doesn’t mean Democrats aren’t jockeying right now to get into position to run in 2020. And as dirty as Hillay and Bill are, McAuliffe is that times 10 — or 1,000. Plus, all the filthy Clinton leeches are without a host, now that Hillary has lost for a second time and vows not to run again.

If unions lose the Janus case, how will they survive? Best bet is to reinvent themselves as professional associations
IN WISCONSIN, UNIONS AND DEMOCRATS (REDUNDANT) POURED MORE THAN 10 MILLION DOLLARS INTO AN EFFORT TO GET RID OF GOVERNOR WALKER AND THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY. THEY LOST. UNIONS NOW CANNOT COMPEL ANY MEMBER TO PAY DUES. THEIR CASH FLOW CRATERED.
There’s much more than free speech at stake here, though. If the court sides with Janus, unions across the country stand to lose millions of dollars a year in guaranteed revenue — potentially enough to cripple their operations. Nobody would be hit harder than the nation’s two largest teachers’ unions — including the National Education Association, the largest public sector union in the country.

Drugs suspect on toilet strike for 38 days ‘would rather die than take a poo’
I DON’T THINK IT’S PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE TO GO THAT LONG WITHOUT GOING
A suspected drug dealer on a record-breaking toilet strike would rather die than take a poo, his lawyer has said. Lamarr Chambers, 24, has now spent 38 days in police custody after Essex Police arrested and detained him on January 17.
Officers believe he swallowed some of the drugs before his arrest in Harlow, Essex, and they have been patiently waiting for him to finally go ever since.

Michelle Obama’s upcoming memoir replicates Obama’s road to power to a T
As Lifson notes, the Democrats are in bad shape, at least if they run on policies. But if they can galvanize the black vote, which is what they did with Obama, they are in a position to win. They are sure they can’t win if they don’t. What would be more logical than for Michelle Obama to write an identity politics book, in first person, Oprah-style, as a backdrop “narrative” to galvanize those voters? The Obamas always were about “narrative” as a means of concealing their policy objectives by promoting their personas. Obama’s “mind-meld,” and right hand man, after all, was fiction writer and major Ben Rhodes. Ol’ Ben knew more than anyone about creating “narratives.”

It’s Not About Saving Lives: Democratic Senator Says Gun Debate Will Help His Party In Midterms
Did anyone catch Sen. Bill Nelson’s (D-FL) rather gratuitous swipe at Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday? CNN held a town hall event in Sunrise, Florida hosted by Jake Tapper, where National Rifle Association Dana Loesch and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) literally ventured into the lion’s den. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) also participated. It was a two-hour bashing of Rubio, the NRA, Loesch, every law-abiding gun owner, and every supporter of the Second Amendment. It was show trial, a North Korean kangaroo court that resembled something out of the two minutes of hate from Orwell’s 1984.

As country listens to Florida teens, Black Lives Matter youths feel ignored
THIS IS THE CRAP IN THE PAPERS I DELIVER EVERY DAY.
The young people of Black Lives Matter are hurt. And they have every right to be.
When they were protesting in the streets of cities across America, much of the country didn’t bother to listen to their message. They were not embraced by the mainstream for their bravery, their determination or resolve to bring attention to reckless police killings that disproportionately impact young African-Americans.
In a tweet last week, Oprah Winfrey said the inspiring youths in Florida reminded her of the “Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.” She pledged to match George and Amal Clooney’s $500,000 donation to the youths’ March for Our Lives planned for March 24.

Army spokesman Michael Maddox said that Petty’s family had been presented with the award at her funeral Monday, and Wang’s family received the award during his funeral service Tuesday. Duque’s family will accept the medal at his funeral service Saturday.

Suspected poacher killed, eaten by pack of lions
A suspected poacher was fatally mauled and eaten by a pack of lions near a national park in South Africa, leaving behind just the man’s “head and some remains,” police said.
A police spokesman in Limpopo told AFP that a loaded hunting rifle was found near the man’s body early Saturday at a private game park in Hoedspruit, west of Kruger National Park, which contains large numbers of the Big 5 game species — lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant and buffalo.
“It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions,” Limpopo police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe told AFP. “They ate his body, nearly all of it, and just left
THE POACHER WAS ACCOMPANIED BY AN ILLEGAL FUR BUYER FROM EASTERN EUROPE. THE POACHER WAS EATEN BY THE FEMALE LION. THE CZECH WAS IN THE MALE.

A Short Flag Tutorial

It seems a member of the Seattle “Let’s Get Upset About Everything” community thought she saw a CONFEDERATE FLAG flying on her street. Never mind ASKING THE NEIGHBOR about the flag, right? No, she REPORTED it to the Seattle Times.

FLAG Norway

Journalists RACED to the scene, only to learn from the confused homeowner that it was the flag of Norway, which was flying during the Olympics, because her parents had immigrated emigrated from Norway and the Norwegians are totally killing it in Korea.

FLAG Dixie

I thought I’d make a side-by-side of the Norwegian and Confederate flags to illustrate this story and learned that the flag (above) most of us think of as the “Confederate flag” was never the official flag of the Confederacy (pictured below).

The NRA and Civil Rights

Gun control laws were originally promulgated by Democrats to keep guns out of the hands of blacks.

  • The very FIRST GUN CONTROL LAW ever enacted here was passed in Virginia in 1640. It banned all blacks — including freemen — from owning guns.

After the Civil War, Democrat legislatures enacted “Black Codes” designed to deny newly freed black Americans the rights enjoyed by other American citizens.

  • This included the right to own guns.

The KKK was an outgrowth of the Democratic Party.

  • Not every Democrat was a klucker, but every member of the KKK was a Democrat.

Wherever the Klan has become a political force, gun control laws have suddenly appeared on the books.

GUN CONTROL and MLK

The National Rifle Association is America’s oldest and most august civil rights organization.

  • It opposed discriminatory gun permit laws and helped black Americans fight them.

A World War II Marine veteran, Williams returned home to Monroe, N.C., to find the Klan riding high — beating, lynching and murdering blacks at will. No one would join the NAACP for fear of Klan reprisals. Williams became president of the local chapter and increased membership from six to more than 200.

But it was not until he got a charter from the NRA in 1957 and founded the Black Armed Guard that the Klan got their comeuppance in Monroe.

Williams’ repeated thwarting of violent Klan attacks is described in his stirring book, “Negroes With Guns.” In one crucial battle, the Klan sieged the home of a black physician and his wife, but Williams and his Black Armed Guard stood sentry and repelled the larger, cowardly force. And that was the end of it.

As the Klan found out, it’s not so much fun when the rabbit’s got the gun.

The NRA’s proud history of fighting the Klan has been airbrushed out of the record by those who were complicit with the KKK, which is to say, the Democrats.

  • Today, it’s Democrats again who want to deprive Americans of their Second Amendment rights and it’s still the NRA standing up to defend our constitutional right to self-defense.
