    Screenshot from Youtube video of Protest for Freedom Rally, cropped and scaled by Dean Weingarten On Sunday morning, 19 July, 2020, a kindergarten teacher was organizing a Black New Mexico Movement protest at the Civic Plaza in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He had a firearm holstered across his chest. Police say he refused to disarm after they told him firearms were banned at the Plaza. A few minutes later they arrested him and two other armed men who were with him. Grady complained that members of the New Mexico Civil Guard, who attended a Protest for Freedom rally at the Civic...

    Copyright © 2020 Albuquerque Journal A strong majority of likely New Mexico voters across all age groups, regions of the state and political parties approve of the way the police in their communities are doing their jobs, according to a recent Journal Poll. And the majority said they oppose cutting some funding from police departments and shifting it to social services. “It’s consistent that if people have strong approval ratings for the police, they would also oppose (cutting) funding,” said Brian Sanderoff, president of Research & Polling Inc., which conducted the statewide survey. “If you’re very concerned about crime –...
  • Albuquerque Resolution Calls for Re-Writing the New Mexico Constitution

    ...anti-gun members of the Albuquerque City Council are calling for MORE GUN CONTROL! That's right. This week, the Council's Finance & Government Operations Committee advanced Resolution 20-68 by Councilmembers Isaac Benton and Diane Gibson, which calls on the New Mexico Legislature to rewrite Article II, Section 6 (the Right to Keep and Bear Arms provision) of the New Mexico Constitution, rip out the state firearms preemption clause and put that enormously-significant change to a popular vote. The full Council will consider the resolution in the coming weeks. Preemption prevents a patchwork of different local firearms rules and regulations across the...

    After she narrowly won election, however, Torres Small quickly embraced the Democrats’ gun control agenda, voting in favor of universal background checks while still presenting herself as a “gun owner and hunter” in interactions with residents. The Las Cruces Sun-News highlighted one exchange back in 2019. Asked for her preferred action on gun regulations, on a night falling about a month after the Aug. 3 mass shooting in nearby El Paso, Torres Small said, “The second amendment right (to bear arms) comes with its responsibilities, and that’s why I voted for comprehensive background checks. Because I think, like most gun...

    We're busy up here with COVID, another New York Times story based on people familiar with the situation, another day of former V.P. Joe Biden hiding in the basement, and lots of rumors about President Trump dropping out. Down in Mexico, the situation is not about rumors. Last week, Mexico City police chief Omar García Harfuch was gunned down near his Lomas de Chapultepec home in Mexico City. For the record, I'm very familiar with that part of Mexico City. It's upscale and exclusive. How did people with high-powered rifles enter this supposedly secured neighborhood? The assassination attempt happened at...

    In New Mexico, on June 15, the police were pulled back, refusing to arrest people as they attempted to destroy public property. Leftist media called the situation a protest. It was a propaganda event meant to intimidate and demoralize. Residents of the area, including local militia members, attempted to prevent the destruction of the statue.  Mindful of a hostile, leftist media, armed militia members were careful not to engage in violence, or to be baited by leftist agitators.Steven Baca, a former political candidate, was videoed scuffling with leftists who were working to destroy the statue. He appears to have taken...

Police say Scott Williams was shot several times in the torso and is in critical but stable condition at University of New Mexico Hospital. In 2019, Baca, the son...

    Yesterday, we told you about Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer offering up dubious explanations for her husband throwing his weight as the governor’s husband around at a northern Michigan marina where he wanted to get his boat on the water early, despite Whitmer’s public guidance against travel to the area. Democratic Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker got huffy late last month when confronted about his wife traveling to his family’s equestrian estate in Florida despite his stay-at-home order, and last week, he got caught sending Illinois construction workers to Wisconsin to work on his new home and horse farm. And then...

    CIVIC PLAZA - A small group of protesters demanding the reopening of New Mexico’s economy gathered at Civic Plaza Friday while the death toll from the coronavirus in New Mexico continues to mount. The demonstration - organized locally on Facebook by longshot Republican congressional candidate Brett Kokinadis and a group called “NM Freedom Rally - Operation Gridlock NM” - mirrored other anti-quarantine protests held in Santa Fe and across the country in recent weeks calling for the softening of social distancing restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic. While the small nationwide protests continue to make headlines and grab attention online, their...

    Cibola County, New Mexico Sheriff Tony Mace says he and other sheriffs from around the state are meeting with attorneys this week as they get ready to file suit over the state’s new red flag law, signed last week by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. During the signing ceremony, Grisham said that sheriffs who weren’t prepared to enforce the new law should resign, but Sheriff Mace and other sheriffs are taking the matter to court instead. Mace tells me that the sheriffs will be holding meetings with several different attorneys over the next few weeks to discuss litigation strategies before filing...

    Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed red flag legislation into law on Tuesday, and told sheriffs who oppose the law that they should resign if they won’t enforce any gun seizure orders. The vast majority of the state’s sheriffs spoke out in opposition to the legislation before it was narrowly approved by the state legislature, and the head of the state sheriffs association rejected Grisham’s call to resign after her remarks during the signing ceremony. New Mexico Sheriffs’ Association President Tony Mace of Cibola County said the new law goes too far by potentially impounding guns before any crime is committed...

    Republican congressional candidate Claire Chase is demonstrating her opposition to a proposed New Mexico gun law in a new campaign commercial obtained exclusively by the Daily Caller. The advertisement shows Chase shooting a .308 at a red flag, and touting her support for the 2nd Amendment. “I have a few words about the so-called red flag law that liberals in Santa Fe are pushing,” Chase says in the video. “This piece of legislation is an attack on our Constitutional rights that would make innocent until proven guilty into guilty until proven innocent.” “Well, today I have a few words for...

    Picture by Caldwell family, with permission. Cropped by Dean Weingarten Mountain lion populations are on the increase and pose significant threats to unarmed humans.  Mountain lions were involved in a flurry of interaction with humans in the last two weeks of 2019. On 26 December 2019, Gary Gorney was hunting pheasants with his two dogs, in the Custer Mine hunting area near Minot, North Dakota. His dogs alerted him to something ahead. Instead of a pheasant, a large female mountain lion charged him out of the grass. He shot and killed the lion with his 9mm pistol. Minot Gorney...

    Guess what wasn't in the puff piece? Any mention of Plame's anti-Semitic tweet controversy. As Post editorialist Molly Roberts wrote in 2017: On the first full day of Rosh Hashanah, unmasked CIA officer Valerie Plame tweeted out an article entitled, “America’s Jews are driving America’s wars.” As if the headline weren’t bad enough, the essay appeared on a website featuring such pieces as “It’s time to re-think David Duke.” Was Plame really "brutally ripped" from privacy? Was she victimized? Or did she and her husband Joe Wilson go to war on the Bush "neocon" war strategy in Iraq? She recommended...

    Just after securing the GOP presidential nomination in May 2016, Donald Trump landed in New Mexico and declared to a rally crowd, “We’re going to win this state.” Six months later, Hillary Clinton beat him there by eight percentage points. But even as Democrats have increased power in New Mexico, President Trump is convinced he can compete. On Monday, he returns to the state for the first time since taking office to hold a re-election rally near Albuquerque.

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — After a three week search, police have arrested the suspect accused of shooting and killing a man outside a Northeast Albuquerque car wash last month. Jerrod Holguin, 22, was booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center Tuesday morning on outstanding warrants. An arrest warrant has been filed charging him with murder. According to the arrest warrant affidavit, Holguin’s mother identified him as the man seen in security camera video shooting at 30-year-old Matthew Shaw on July 23. Shaw was struck in the back and died at the scene.

    It has been less than three months since Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-Ind.) and his fans were celebrating him being on the cover of Time magazine just two weeks after he was New York Magazine's flattering cover story. He followed that up with a fundraising win for the second quarter but things have been a bit quiet around him recently. Political fortunes are notoriously fickle but even more so in a presidential primary that features an unprecedented number of candidates. While Mayor Pete is by no means out of this race his polling numbers haven't followed his big cash haul and...

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) criticized President Donald Trump’s effort to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall. Bennet said, “The president is acting like we are some weak, pathetic country. We have the ability to treat human beings humanely. We have the ability to lead our hemisphere in a discussion on how to deal with this refugee crisis.” He added, “We are a strong and powerful country. We supposed to lead humanity, not make our border a symbol of nativist hostility. That should be an embarrassment for everybody. The symbol of...
