CNN’s Poppy Harlow Doesn’t Know The American National Anthem

1 Comment

H/T Red Right Videos.

CNN is anti America so this is not a surprise to me.

It’s very different from the French national anthem, lady!

Just, wow… the level of ignorance this required must have been astounding. Poppy Harlow completely mistook the AMERICAN National Anthem for the French anthem… how the heck do you even do that?!

Harlow was discussing President Trump’s meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron when she told viewers to “listen in to the French national anthem for just a moment.”

The video then focuses solely on a band blaring the Star-Spangled Banner before Trump and Macron, with the former putting his hand over his heart.

Obviously, the Star-Spangled Banner is America’s national anthem, while the French national anthem is La Marseillaise, which sounds nothing like the Star-Spangled Banner

Attorney For Kate Steinle’s Murderer Blames Stolen Gun for her Death

1 Comment

H/T Bearing Arms.

A thug with this stolen gun is to blame for Kate’s death not the gun.

Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, the illegal alien charged with the 2015 murder of Kate Steinle, is being represented by attorneys with the public defender’s office who are proving their team has one hell of a set of cajones.

The Chief Attorney in the San Francisco Public Defender’s office, Attorney Matt Gonzalez, has launched a very public attempt to blame the stolen Sig Sauer pistol for the 32-year-old woman’s death.

The wild allegation is part of his defense strategy as he openly pleads the case in the court of public opinion. In an Op-Ed published by the San Francisco Examiner, Gonzalez suggested the shooting itself was an accident and declared Sig Sauer guns are known to accidentally discharge.

Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez is accused of firing a gun at Kate Steinle on San Francisco’s Pier 14, two years ago. A semi-automatic handgun owned by a Bureau of Land Management employee and made by a German manufacturer, SIG Sauer, is at the center of the upcoming trial.

Some gun enthusiasts have objected to the Lopez Sanchez defense team’s assertion that the SIG Sauer is known for accidental discharges. They invoke its reputation for quality when fired under ideal conditions. Yet, claims the gun is accident-prone cannot be brushed aside — that’s because the SIG Sauer operates exactly as designed. It’s an elite handgun intended for law enforcement and military personnel who may need to fire it with split second notice. Hence, it has a hair trigger in single-action mode. Even among well-trained users, it has a lengthy history of accidental discharges.

Those opposing gun restrictions can obfuscate any individual case, but the evidence is overwhelming: Accidental discharges of guns (most with heavier trigger pulls than the SIG Sauer) occur with frequency. The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control estimates more than 10,000 unintentional firearm deaths in the United States since 2000. The number of nonfatal shootings is undoubtedly higher.

In yet another Chronicle article, Gonzalez implores readers to believe his client is “more a homeless victim of lifelong poverty than a murderous monster.”

At the preliminary hearing, Gonzalez argued the shooting was an accident, telling the court that because the bullet was damaged on one side, indicating it had ricocheted off the ground, Lopez-Sanchez was not pointing the firearm at Steinle when the bullet pierced her back, traveling through her heart, and ultimately ended her life.

James Steinle, who advocated for Kate’s Law after his daughter’s death, has reported her last words were, “Dad, help me, help me.”

According to Gonzalez, Lopez-Sanchez claimed he “threw the gun into the bay so it would stop firing” after the fatal shooting.

What do you think of this defense strategy?

New Legislation Aims to Put Firearms Education in Wisconsin High Schools

Leave a comment

H/T Bearing Arms.

Every state needs to have a law promoting firearms safety in schools.

Well, hallelujah, what wonders never cease!

On June 30, 2017, 18 Wisconsin Representatives and 5 State Senators introduced Assembly Bill 427, common sense legislation aimed at putting firearms education into high schools across the Dairy State.

The bill would require the state superintendent of public instruction to work with the Department of Natural Resources, a law enforcement agency, or an organization that specializes in firearms safety to develop a curriculum for a comprehensive firearm education course to be offered as an elective to high school pupils. It would not require any school district to offer the course and would prohibit the presence or use of live ammunition.

Lead author of the bill, Representative Ken Skowronski (R-Waukesha) has been participating in shooting sports since the age or 12 and was inspired to draft the bill after seeing a rise in trap shooting clubs throughout Wisconsin.

“What we’re doing is allowing the high schools to offer an elective as a choice,” Skowronski said. “It can be yearlong, a quarter or a semester. It’s up to the school.”

The legislation drew quick criticism from hoplophobes like State Rep. Sondy Pope (D-Mt. Horeb), who thinks students should learn about gun safety somewhere other than in schools “because it is not the responsibility of the school district.”

“I know Wisconsin is a hunting state, I grew up in a hunting family, but I think it denotes something completely different, especially with handguns, in an urban setting,” Pope said.

Pope then inadvertently made a case to pass the legislation, saying, “I think we are all aware of the proliferation of death and injury because of the accessibility of guns in our society. I don’t see a reason to introduce guns to students in school,” before she concluded, “I think it’s inappropriate.”

If schools were to offer a firearm safety course which would greatly curtail “the proliferation of death and injury” from guns in our society, wouldn’t that be a good thing and an appropriate response to the issue?

Now if only we could get the Eddie Eagle Gun Safety Program in every school across the United States, then we’d really be taking a tremendous step toward gun safety in every town of America.

But that, of course, would make entirely too much sense.

Armed Florida Mom Ends Violent Attack on Neighbor

3 Comments

H/T Bearing Arms.

Once again a citizen with a firearms saves an others life.

Earlier this month, Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Florida responded to a call at approximately 4 a.m. of a suspicious person knocking on doors.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they found an 18-year-old who fit the description of the suspect. As deputies approached the condominium, they heard loud yelling and banging on the walls. Officers knocked on the door and announced their presence, at which time dispatchers alerted deputies to an armed individual.

The suspect, who was covered in blood, opened the door and began attacking deputies. The deputies attempted to use a taser gun to subdue the suspect. Eventually, he was taken into custody.

When deputies swept the apartment, they found 31-year-old Brittany Cheek and her 3-year-old child, locked in the bathroom.

According to Cheek, the suspect had attacked her neighbor, 52-year-old Susan Bass. Cheek grabbed her firearm and demanded the suspect leave Bass alone. Out of fear for her and her daughter’s life, Bass shot the suspect in the leg.

The suspect then forced his way into Cheek’s apartment, at which point he attacked her. When deputies arrived on the scene, Cheek and her daughter had time run into the bathroom until law enforcement found them.

According to Bass, the suspect initially knocked on her door with a bloody head. She thought he needed medical attention. He began making incoherent statements and wouldn’t allow her to shut her door. That’s when he attacked her.

The suspect was charged with two counts of Simple Battery, two counts of Burglary with Assault or Battery, one count of Battery on Law Enforcement Officer, and three counts of Resisting with Violence.

He was transported to the Pinellas County Jail after he was released from the hospital on Sunday. His bond was set at $301,000.

Nancy Pelosi Mistakes Trump For Bush For Fifth Time

1 Comment

H/T Western Journalism.

Nancy Pelosi is the poster child for term limits.

As she has done at least four times previously…

During an interview with a San Francisco television station that aired Tuesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., referred to President Donald Trump as “President Bush,” at least the fifth time she has made such an error.

“Everything we have seen so far, though, with the president has been about tax cuts for the rich,” she said in the interview with KTVU. “In fact, affecting California very directly, is the Affordable Care Act. President Bush has come out against that, as you know, and it is not even a health care bill. The Republican bill is not even a health care bill. It’s a tax bill disguised as a health care bill.”

She had presumably mistaken Trump for 43rd President George W. Bush, though it is possible she may instead have been talking about his father, 41st President George H.W. Bush.

This was the second time in a span of just over a month that Pelosi had mistaken Trump for one of the Bushes.

“New Yorkers have said to me, those who have had business dealings with him, he operates this way,” Pelosi said during a weekly press conference in early June, taking aim at President Trump’s character. “First he tries to charm you. President Bush tries to charm you. If that doesn’t work … “

Though a reporter tried to correct her, she ignored him and continued speaking until an aide informed her of her mistake. Then, she apologized for her error.

Only weeks before the presser, she again confused the two presidents while speaking at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco about her battles with Republicans over abortion.

“For decades I’ve served in Congress, and for decades I’ve had to fight the Republicans’ opposition to birth control, contraception and family planning,” she said.

They do not believe in it. And a lot of those people voted for George … for, what’s his name?”

As of Thursday, the House minority leader had yet to issue a correction over her latest blunder.

Left Blames Global Warming For Enormous Iceberg Breaking. There’s Just One Problem.

1 Comment

H/T The Daily Wire.

Icebergs break away all the time it is a natural thing.

 

Talk about burying the lede.

Time issued a tweet with a video alerting readers that a massive iceberg had broken off in Antarctica. As The Daily Wire reported last week:

An iceberg roughly the size of Delaware and 600 feet thick is about to break off from one of the largest floating ice shelves in Antarctica, and the prospect is precipitating fierce debate as to whether global warming is the cause. The iceberg is part of the Larsen C ice shelf in the Weddell Sea, south of the tip of South America. The calving has been expected; a crack in the ice shelf had grown to be over 100 miles long in recent months.

No matter; over video of the iceberg, Time intoned in a caption:

A 1.12-trillion ton iceberg has broken off from Antarctica.

Uh-oh.

Time continued:

Scientists say the vast iceberg, with twice the volume of Lake Erie, broke off between July 10-12.

OMG.

Time, on a roll now, added:

The process, known as calving, occurred when a 2, 240-square-mile section broke off.

AND YOU KNOW WHY THAT IS, DON’T YOU?

Of course, the natural response from climate change zealots would be that global warming was to blame, correct?

Correct. Time’s tweet elicited the usual coterie of climate change warriors to assert that dreaded global warming was melting the ice cap.

An insanely massive iceberg just broke off of Antarctica http://ti.me/2vdxj6W  pic.twitter.com/s0autIsdED

Can we put all the climate change deniers on it and watch it melt?

But then, before the video ended, but after the climate change zealots had rushed to their computers to tweet their rage, unbeknownst to them, Time finally admitted:

It was a natural event that had been anticipated for months and was not caused by climate change.

Well, heck, everyone knows that.

Gee, Time, thanks for the tip!

Fake News Explained So Clearly That Even Don Lemon Could Understand It

1 Comment

H/T Clash Daily.

Don Lemon is so ignorant he could not spell cat if you spotted him a C and an A then help up the letter T.

CNN and their media accomplices HATE all this talk about ‘fake news’.

They claim it’s anti-journalism.

(Considering their ‘commitment to journalistic ethics‘ that is ‘adorable’.)

CNN has a curious pattern of ‘tech issues’ when the topic of ‘fake news’ comes up on air.

Don Lemon has even been known to end interviews completely for even mentioning it.

But if CNN and the Media (D) have any intention of saving their credibility — and credibility IS their product — they must first come face-to-face with the problem.

This is a top-notch breakdown of what we mean by ‘fake news’ and why we mean it.

Will the networks ever beat their addiction to Fake News? That depends whether they can admit their problem.
