  • Democrats Pledge To Fight Trump Rule Ensuring Banks Won’t Refuse Service To Conservatives

    In its final days, the Trump administration is seeking to disrupt the way progressive activists increasingly impose their will on big business: through banks controlling the loan lifelines to the economy. A regulation just finalized (update) aims to prevent lenders from blackballing businesses in industries opposed by the left by requiring banks to demonstrate that their loan decisions are “based on quantitative, impartial risk-based standards,” rather than political or reputational concerns. The proposed Fair Access to Financial Services Rule (FAFSR) is a response to successful pressure campaigns waged by environmental groups and congressional Democrats, which culminated in every major American...
  • Report: Donald Trump discussed forming new 'Patriot Party' (there is a website set up, don't know if it's fake or not)

    HUNT VALLEY, Md. (SBG) — Donald Trump may form a new political party following his departure from the White House. Trump discussed forming a "Patriot Party" last week with several aides and other people close to him, according to people familiar with the matter, the Wall Street Journal has reported. A "Patriot Party National Committee" website says it wants to “restore constitutional conservative leadership” and is “a movement for conservatives that have been left in the cold by the establishment GOP.” The platform promotes “responsible gun ownership,” “family values,” and “fiscal accountability.” Trump's connection to the group is unclear.

    WHAT HAPPENS NOW THAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE SEIZED CONTROL OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ver. 4.0 With the steal of the Presidency and 2 Senate seats in Georgia complete, here is a condensed look at some of what we will face in the near future now that the socialists/communists/marxists/globalists/hate America crowd (leftist's) have seized full control of our federal government, and therefore control of our lives in the "United" States of America. And what happened at the Capital Building on 01.06.2021 (whether it was 10% or 50% antifa incited/perpetrated) will give them greater resolve to continue to strip away our freedoms...

    Screenshots from a Discord chat channel allegedly hosted by John Sullivan – a far-left, anti-Trump activist who appears to have incited violence at the U.S. Capitol while posing as a journalist – reveal he and his followers infiltrated the January 6th Save America March in Washington, D.C. The unearthed screenshots follow Sullivan’s arrest for his role in the Capitol riot, which included calls to violence such as “we gotta get this shit burned” and “it’s our house motherf*ckers,” an affidavit can reveal. The Discord chat channel is allegedly affiliated with Sullivan’s Insurgence USA group, which describes itself as “forming a...

    The 117th Congress has started busily filing bills. None of the text is available yet, but the bill titles are informative. This what I’ve found to date. All of these are in the House. As of this writing nothing directly affecting Second Amendment rights appears to have been filed in the Senate.~~~SNIP~~~13 house bills filed among which this one filed by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee:H.R.127 – To provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms, and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition.

    Democrats now have single-party control of the federal government. President Joe Biden styled himself as the most moderate candidate his party had to offer. And still, during the campaign he promised to put Beto O’Rourke – the man who blurted out “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s” in charge of his administration’s gun policies. Whether or not President Biden and gun czar Beto aim for a program of national gun confiscation, we should expect some sort of major crackdown against the Second Amendment and against our other liberties. The congressmen who ducked, covered, and cowered – in now...

    At least one of the group of intruders received some ballistic dissuasion when they entered the store. Thanks to the shop’s camera system, store management and cops have nice quality video of the incident, along with an image of the license plate of the getaway ride. The car’s driver dropped his bleeding buddy at the local hospital’s ER entrance before speeding back to Peoria. The guy they’d left at the hospital is now in the morgue. Meanwhile, cops found the driver/car owner not long after. It wasn’t exactly tough detective work since the (alleged) perp used his own car. Perhaps...
  • Va. Lawmakers Should Pass New Sunday Hunting Bill

    It’s time for the Commonwealth of Virginia, my adopted home state, to repeal antiquated blue laws prohibiting public land hunting on Sundays. Not only are they outdated, they go against the very principles inset in the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation. One of its seven principles, the democracy of hunting, stipulates the government must allocate “access to wildlife without regard for wealth, prestige, or land ownership.” The Virginia General Assembly will convene on January 13th for the 2021 legislative session to deliberate, among many bills, House Bill 1799 to undo these prohibitions.Lawmakers will have until February 27th to advance...

    On 2 September 2018, Kansas University released a summation of a study on how gun owners affect politics.  The study will be presented at the American Political Science Association annual meeting in 2018, in Boston. A problem all scientists face is overcoming assumptions about reality they have already made. It is particularly true in social sciences such as political science. In such studies, it is very difficult to keep the world view of the person studying a subject from influencing the study.Most political scientists today subscribe to the Progressive political philosophy. It seems to be the case in the study...

    Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has been vocal about her intent to carry her weapon in the Capitol. Washington, D.C.'s police chief has issued a warning to freshman GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert, who has been vocal about her intent to "carry" her gun on Capitol Hill. On the day of her swearing in, earlier this week, Boebert posted a fundraising video to her Twitter page promising to "always stand strong for our 2nd Amendment rights." "That congresswoman, whoever it is, I guess it was from Colorado, will be subjected to the same penalties as anyone else that’s caught on the District of...
  • Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signs ‘stand your ground’ bill

    01/04/2021 2:29:51 PM PST · by CheshireTheCat · 23 replies ^ | January 4, 2021 | Jeremy Pelzer
    Gov. Mike DeWine on Monday signed a controversial “stand your ground” bill that would eliminate Ohio’s “duty to retreat” before using force in self-defense. Senate Bill 175, fast-tracked through the Ohio General Assembly last month by DeWine’s fellow Republicans, will make Ohio the 36th state to no longer require people to retreat before they can justifiably hurt or kill someone in self-defense. The governor had previously hinted that he would veto SB175, saying he first wanted lawmakers to pass his package of gun reforms that they sat on for more than a year. But in a release sent Monday afternoon,...

    The number of homicides and shootings in Chicago spiked dramatically in 2020, ending with more bloodshed than in all but one year in more than two decades, statistics released by police on Friday revealed. After three years of falling homicide totals, 2020 ended with 769 homicides — 274 more than the previous year and the most since the 784 homicides in 2016. The latest shooting victim figures told the same story, with the year ending with 4,033 shooting victims compared with 2,598 the year before. And it never let up, as is illustrated by the fact that in December, there...

    More than 80 members of the House of Representatives are taking a stand against a Democrat plan to end lawmakers’ eligibility to carry firearms on the grounds of Capitol Hill under current regulations. The effort is being lead by Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) who says she refuses to give up her ability to carry a firearm while spending time in the crime ridden District of Columbia. “I refuse to give up my Second Amendment rights,” Boebert said in a statement, adding: “I’m a 5-foot tall, 100-pound mom with four children and will be walking to work and serving in one...

    Congresswoman-elect Lauren Boebert (R-CO) spoke with Breitbart News about Second Amendment-related issues Wednesday, stressing guns provide women with an “equalizer” against a “stronger aggressor.” On January 29, 2014, Breitbart News reported on Rifle, Colorado’s Shooters Grill, a restaurant where waitresses and patrons alike carry guns. Boebert owns Shooters Grill, and in 2014 she said, “We encourage [carrying guns], and the customers love that they can come here and express their rights. This country was founded on our freedom. People can come in carrying their gun, and they can pray over their food.”
