WATCH: Ted Cruz Shuts Down CNN’s Chris Cuomo Over Dems Blocking Bill to Stop Felons From Buying Guns

Leave a comment

H/T The Gateway Pundit.

Fredo Cuomo is one of the Communist News Network’s village idiots and is a DemocRat waterboy.

Senator Ted Cruz left CNN’s Chris Cuomo looking absolutely stunned as he demanded to know if the host has bothered to ask a Democrat why they filibustered legislation that would prevent criminals from purchasing firearms.

Cruz did not hold back, leaving Cuomo looking like a deer in headlights during the interview which took place on Wednesday morning. He stated that his 2013 bill would have likely prevented the Parkland school shooting.

The Texas Senator tweeted out a portion of the interview on Friday.

One question to ask Democrats who filibustered Grassley-Cruz:

Why did you filibuster legislation that targeted violent criminals and sought to put felons who illegally try to buy firearms in jail?

“Let me ask one quick question. Grassley-Cruz got 52 Senators supporting it. Nine Democrats. The most bipartisan support of any comprehensive bill. But Harry Reid and the Democrats filibustered Grassley-Cruz even though it targeted criminals and could have perhaps prevented these attacks,” Cruz said.

“Have you ever asked a Democrat why did you filibuster Grassley-Cruz, which targeted violent criminals and sought to put felons who illegally try to buy firearms in jail?” Cruz asked a stunned looking Cuomo.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Senator Cruz (R-TX) reintroduced the bill on Tuesday.

“Time and again we’ve seen the disastrous results of failures to fully employ the national background checks system. A number of recent mass shootings could have been prevented by proper execution of the existing system. Senator Cruz and I are now taking steps to bolster that system and improve its ability to prevent future violence.” Grassley said in a statement about the bill. “When we introduced this legislation in 2013, after the tragedy at Sandy Hook, it received a bipartisan majority vote in the Senate. I’m optimistic in rejoining Senator Cruz in this effort and look forward to the bill’s consideration.”

The bill has the support of outspoken Parkland student Kyle Kashuv.

The Grassley Cruz bill is one I fully support. @marcorubio and @senorrinhatch have a great bill too. I implore all positions to come together and vote this into law. @tedcruz

The bill was first introduced as the “Grassley-Cruz” amendment in 2013, and received a positive vote of 52-48 in the Senate, when Republicans were in the minority, the statement from Grassley’s office explains.

If passed, the legislation would improve the NICS, address mental health concerns relating to the purchase of firearms and bolster alerts to law enforcement. Additionally, it would commission a study on the causes of mass shootings from the National Institute of Justice and National Academy of Sciences and include additional grant resources, which can be used to strengthen school safety and security.

Republican Jewish Coalition demands resignation of Democratic leaders with ties to Farrakhan

Leave a comment

H/T Fox News.

The DemocRats mentioned in this article will never resign or condemn Calypso Louie Farraconman(Farrakhan) because he  speaks for them.

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has answered those who denounced as anti-Semitic his recent “Jews are my enemy” quote with another broadside, this time tweeting a video clip where he says “The Jews have control over those areas of government” – in referring to the FBI.

The clip featuring the latest remark was posted to Farrakhan’s official Twitter account on March 7, well after the controversy erupted over the remarks made earlier, at a Chicago event on Feb. 25. Those comments brought new attention to Farrakhan’s links with seven members of the Congressional Black Congress, as well as to Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory, who attended the Farrakhan event, and posted a photo of herself with Farrakhan on her Instagram feed after the speech.

The controversy sparked calls by many Republicans for Democrats to vigorously denounce Farrakhan’s remarks. Others who quickly condemned Farrakhan’s remarks also asked pointed questions on why much of the media was either slow to report the story, or have chosen to ignore it entirely.

Farrakhan tweeted this week: “The FBI has been the worst enemy of Black advancement. The Jews have control over those agencies of government.”

The Republican Jewish Coalition on Tuesday called on the seven members of the CBC members to resign. The coalition’s director, Matt Brooks, told Fox News the Democratic leaders with ties to Farrakhan have been quick to denounce President Donald Trump and the GOP for remarks or actions that they view as bigoted, but overlook blatant racism and anti-Semitism when it comes to Farrakhan.

“There’s clearly a double standard,” Brooks said, then amended that to say “No, there’s a double double-standard. Not only do you get the progressive left wing and more centrist Democrats who aren’t shy about criticizing President Trump or branding the Republican Party as white nationalists or neo-Nazis, but when it comes to condemning Louis Farrakhan, they’re silent.”

The members called on to resign were the subject of a story in The Daily Caller, which reported a review of videos, photographs and other documents revealed the lawmakers have had ties to Farrakhan. They are Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, Maxine Waters of California, Danny Davis of Illinois, Al Green of Texas, Barbara Lee of California, Andre Carson of Indiana, and Gregory Meeks of New York.

On Thursday, Meeks tweeted “Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic messages are upsetting & unacceptable. I always condemn hate speech of any kind. Also upsetting that right-wing blogs suggest otherwise & try making this a black vs. Jewish community issue. Still waiting for those blogs to condemn Trump’s racist remarks.”

Sen. Brian Schatz, a Hawaii Democrat who is not among those with ties to Farrakhan, took to Twitter to condemn the Nation of Islam leader and to say that he must be rejected, not courted. “This is unacceptable in a progressive coalition or any political coalition. Anti-Semitism has no place in American society. We must reject this, left right and center.”

Besides Meeks, Ellison has also condemned Farrakhan for his divisive and hostile rhetoric. Davis denounced anti-Semitism, but also praised Farrakhan, according to the Daily Caller.

In a statement on the Republican Jewish Coalition’s website calling for them to step down, Brooks wrote: “Anti-Semitism is unacceptable. Farrakhan is the moral equivalent of a leader of the KKK. If it was discovered that members of Congress had met with the leader of the KKK, they would need to resign. In this case, for meeting with, and embracing, Louis Farrakhan, nothing short of resignation is acceptable from these seven Democrats.”

 

Earlier this week, a spokesman for Ellison, who is the deputy director of the Democratic National Committee, told Fox News: “Rep. Ellison has repeatedly disavowed anti-Semitism and bigotry, since his first campaign for Congress in 2006.”

The spokesman referred Fox News to a 12-year-old statement Ellison made when he came under fire for ties to Farrakhan, in which he said he erroneously dismissed concerns the Nation of Islam leader was anti-Semitic, and said he never shared “their hateful views” of “Jews, gays, or any other group.”

Recently, Ellison again was in the spotlight after the Wall Street Journal reported that he had attended a meeting in 2013 with Muslim leaders where Farrakhan was present. Ellison, who was the first Muslim elected to Congress, said he did not know who would be there and that his decision to go “was not an endorsement of the political views of other attendees.”

Davis, the Illinois congressman, said in a February interview with the Daily Caller that Farrakhan is an “outstanding human being” and said he sees the minister on a regular basis. Days later, Davis’s office released a statement denouncing anti-Semitism as being “antithetical to everything I believe and everything that I work for on a daily basis.”

Reactions to the call for resignations has varied, even among groups sharing similar views on many important matters.

In Jewishpress.com, writer David Israel argued that while Brooks was right to denounce Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism, he should not call for the resignation of lawmakers who have been pro-Israel, and are crucial congressional allies to Jews.

“Their Jewish voters and their Jewish colleagues in the Democratic party are entitled to an explanation about those Farrakhan meetings,” Israel wrote in Jewishpress.com, “but in politics, meeting a man, disturbing and loathsome as he may be, is not the same as endorsing his views. Pro-Israel Democrats have had enough trouble finding allies within the Black Caucus in Congress to face the Palestinian and BDS threats, to name just two.”

BDS refers to the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign that says Israel is responsible for violations of Palestinian rights and international law.

But Brooks rejected the contention lawmakers should be given a pass for “breaking bread with Farrakhan” because of other ways they can be useful to constituents.

“These [lawmakers] are leaders of the Democratic Party,” Brooks said. “If that’s enough for [David Israel], then why isn’t there the same standard when they criticize Donald Trump and other Republicans are who friends of Israel?”

“None of these Democrats went into those meetings with Farrakhan not knowing who he was,” Brooks said. “At some point they made the decision that they were going to go ahead and meet with him.”

The Republican Jewish Coalition on Tuesday called on the seven members of the CBC members to resign. The coalition’s director, Matt Brooks, told Fox News the Democratic leaders with ties to Farrakhan have been quick to denounce President Donald Trump and the GOP for remarks or actions that they view as bigoted, but overlook blatant racism and anti-Semitism when it comes to Farrakhan.

Democrats Brag About Gun Control – In Baltimore!

Leave a comment

H/T The Daily Caller.

  Baltimore is the most dangerous city in America, according to a new study by USA Today because of gun control.               

The honest residents of Baltimore are unarmed while the thugs are armed to the teeth.

Baltimore is the most dangerous city in America, according to a new study by USA Today, with 55.8 murders per 100,000 residents. In spite of that fact, the Maryland Democratic Party is touting the “assault weapons ban” the party implemented in 2013 as a way to raise money. “Will USA follow MD’s lead?” asks a fundraising email from Maryland Democratic Party Chairwoman Kathleen Matthews.

The fundraising email from Matthews, wife of MSNBC personality Chris Matthews, reads, “Following the tragic Sandy Hook shooting in Newtown, Democrats in Maryland passed one of the toughest assault weapons bans in the country.”

“Now, as young people in Parkland are leading the Never Again movement against gun violence, all of Maryland’s Democratic members of Congress are united against the NRA and their Republican cronies in the fight to pass an assault weapons ban to protect all Americans.”

It then contained a picture with a link to the state party’s fundraising page:

Screen capture from Maryland Democratic Party fundraising email.

Matthews continues, “Help us ensure they can continue their work in Washington and Annapolis by making a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 today. We have great Democratic representation here in Maryland. Let’s keep it that way.”

In 2013, then-Governor Martin O’Malley, signed the Firearms Safety Act into law, which was billed at the time as “among the nation’s most restrictive gun-control measures.” In the years following the law’s passage, the City of Baltimore — that largest city in Maryland — has seen an escalation of its murder rate, jumping from 211 murders in 2014 to 343 in 2017.

In addition to Maryland’s restrictive gun laws, the city of Baltimore has very restrictive laws regarding gun ownership and is a “may issue” state, not a “shall issue” state in regards to the ability to carry a concealed firearm.

 

Why Doesn’t Mainstream Media Demand Democrats Denounce Farrakhan?

Leave a comment

H/T The Lid.

The Lame Stream Media is the lapdog of the DemocRat party so they get a pass on Calypso Louie Farraconman  and Jeremiah Wright. 

Sometimes media bias has nothing to do with what reporters say, but what they don’t say.

Recently, we’ve learned additional members of the Democratic Party have a relationship with the racist and anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan, whose hatred has been a well-known fact for well over a decade. But when Farrakhan released new hatred this past weekend the MSM did not question his relationship with the party.

Listen, Jewish people don’t have no hands that are free of the blood of us. They owned slave ships, they bought and sold us. They raped and robbed us. Louis Farrakahn  Saviours Day February 2005

I’m not sure what the bigot was talking about, during the time period Farrakhan said we were raping black people, my Jewish ancestors were in eastern Europe getting beaten up and raped by Cossacks other local Jew-haters.

“These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength. … It’s the wicked Jews, the false Jews, that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality. It’s the wicked Jews, false Jews, that make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you homophobic!”— Louis Farrakhan, Saviours’ Day speech, Feb. 26, 2006

There is a weapon that can be put in a room where there are black and white people, and it will kill only the black and spare the white, because it is a genotype weapon that is designed for your genes, for your race, for your kind,” Louis Farrakhan on Ebola, 2014

Farrakhan and Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) in 2005

This past Sunday Farrakhan crawled out from under the rock he shares with other slugs and made his annual Saviour’s Day speech. As his tradition, he used the speech as an opportunity to spew hatred against Jews and Caucasians and he didn’t disappoint— with comments such as:

“The government is my enemy, the powerful Jews are my enemy, and scared-to-death Negroes are my enemy, and weak Muslims and hypocrites are my enemy!”

(…)“White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled the cover off of that Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”

Farrakhan also discussed Keith Ellison (D-MN), the deputy chairman of the Democratic Party, confirming his work with the anti-Semite, something that was known but downplayed by the Congressman.

“He wanted to help his community. He wanted to be a congressman, so when the Jews found out that he was in the Nation [they demanded he denounces Farrakhan]..,Keith [Ellison] was in the Nation in 1995. He was selling the Final Call newspaper, a beautiful brother,”

Interestingly when Ellison’s work with Farrakhan and other anti-Semites was exposed when he was running for chairman of the Democratic party, the exposers were warned by the Anti-Defamation League not to denounce him.

Farrakhan’s hatred isn’t the only issue.  Whenever a bigoted nutjob announces they support President Trump, Democrats, and the mainstream media start screaming “why won’t the president denounce…..?” David Duke for example, or the white supremacists, Roy Moore, etc. etc.

2005: Farrakhan hugging Rep.Al Green (D-TX)

When Democrats show a much closer relationship with haters, heard from the Dems and/or the MSM is the sound of crickets. Former president Obama associated with Al Sharpton who led two anti-Semitic pogroms in NYC, and every other anti-Semite who crawled out from under a rock and there was silence.

Over the past month, we’ve learned senior Congressional Democrats including Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Keith Ellison (D-MN and the deputy chair of the party) and 19 other members of the Congressional Black Caucus with Louis Farrakhan, with the exception of Jake Tapper at CNN, the MSM may have reported the meetings, however unlike when a nutjob supports Trump there is no call for a denunciation. Farrakhan spewed hatred on Sunday, but there is no call for the Democrats to rebuke him.

CNN’s Jake Tapper went on a twitter storm denouncing Farrakhan’s hatred.

On Sunday, Rev. Farrakhan gave his Saviours’ Day 2018 Address, attended by thousands including one of the co-founders of the Women’s March.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DMPSt_IQac 

On Sunday, Rev. Farrakhan gave his Saviours’ Day 2018 Address, attended by thousands including one of the co-founders of the Women’s March.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DMPSt_IQac 

Shortly after 1:10:50 in the video Farrakhan proclaims that “the powerful Jews are my enemy.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DMPSt_IQac 

At 2:57:00 he begins approvingly quoting some of the anti-Semitic comments made by Rev. Billy Graham and President Richard Nixon in the Oval Office.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DMPSt_IQac 

At 2:59:00 Farrakhan approvingly cites Nixon and Graham attacking Jews’ “grip on the media” and Hollywood and “how the Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out turning men into women and women into men.”

Assailing Keith Ellison, at 3:21 Farrakhan says, “let me tell you something, when you want something in this world, the Jew holds the door.”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DMPSt_IQac 

at 3;49: “White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan …has pulled the cover off the eyes of that Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DMPSt_IQac 

The best part of the twitter storm is when Tapper pointed out the danger of Farrakhan is his acceptance by elected officials.

This is who Farrakhan is. It’s why folks are legitimately so offended when they found out that then-Sen. Obama and members of the CBC met with him in 2005. https://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/photo-of-obama-louis-farrakhan-to-be-released 

The difference between Farrakhan and some members of the alt-reich whose heinous bigotry has received a lot of attention this past year: Farrakhan has a much larger following and elected officials meet with him openly.
-fin-

Farrakhan’s hateful words Sunday were reported by the media but his relationship with Democrats was not treated the same way as when a bigot announces support of President Trump. Where are the headlines saying “denounce Farrakhan!”, or “where are the Democrats?”, or “why is Ellison silent” or even “Do all the Democrats in Congress support the anti-Semitic Farrakhan?” 

I do not believe all Democrats are anti-Semites, but sadly many in the party are leaning that way. Perhaps that’s why the party is silent (well that and the fact that Keith Ellison is their vice-chair)

As for the MSM, they usually ignore Antisemitism (see Al Sharpton and Barack Obama) but  Farrakhan spews hatred against all white people why is the media silent?  Is it because they only care about some bigotry? Is it because Farrakahn has a relationship with Democrats, and the bigots who support the president are supporting a Republican? Perhaps it’s because the media hates Trump more than the average Republican?

2005 Farrakhan Hugging Then-Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA)

When Todd Aiken blew his Missouri Senate bid with the extremely stupid comment, “If it’s legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down,” the first question out of most MSM reporters mouths when confronting a Republican was, “do you agree with Todd Aiken?” Yet four days after Louis Farrakhan unleashed his latest hatred upon the world, not one Democrat has been asked if they agree with him.

Sometimes media bias has nothing to do with what reporters say, but what they don’t say.

Below is a video Farrakhan’s entire 2/25/18 Saviour’s Day speech.

Democrats Vote Down Gun Control Bills Introduced by Republicans

Leave a comment

The DemocRats do not want a bill that supports due process because it is not about gun control but people control.

Just like their Communist Comrades DemocRats want the masses unarmed and easy to control.

The Democrats don’t want care about gun control or reducing gun violence, they just want an issue they can use against Republicans.

Republicans Have Been Itching To Unload On The Clintons. Donald Trump Just Did 

Leave a comment

To correct the folks at NPR the last time a Republican candidate took the fight to the DemocRats was Ronald Reagan.

Now we have Donald Trump like Ronald Reagan is taking the fight to Hillary Clinton and the DemocRats.

Few things make Republicans more upset than the Clintons. And after weeks of missteps, Donald Trump gave them something to cheer about.

Obama and his fellow DemocRats will never say Muslim Terrorist are to blame so the blame an inanimate object a firearm.

Radical Islamic terrorists and the liberty-loathing, politically correct politicians and media that enable them are going to be the death of us all.

Ice Cube : Vote Democrat to ‘Put a Lid’ on Gun Manufacturing

2 Comments

This is from AmmoLand. 

Ice Cube is a bigger asshole and idiot than I first thought.

 

Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- During an April 15  2016 interview on the set of Barbershop: The Next Cut, actor Ice Cube said he will vote Democrat in the upcoming presidential election as a way to ‘put a lid’ on gun manufacturing.

VH1 posted a video of Ice Cube answering questions about gun violence, the upcoming presidential election, and the Black Lives Matter movement in which he said:

One thing the government can do to combat gun violence is put a lid on the manufacturing of guns. I think we have enough guns on the streets. I think they need to really regulate the manufacturers and hopefully not make so many guns and not manufacture so many weapons.

http://www.vh1.com/video-clips/hinwf1/behind-the-movie-ice-cube-talks-about-blacklivesmatter

He added:

The candidate that I think is most effective to help the situation has got to be one of the Democrats ’cause it seems like the Republican Party is really, you know, an advocate for guns and the Second Amendment. I believe in the Second Amendment, but we got to have some common sense with it. It’ll be either Bernie or Hillary. I’m still not sure who I’m supporting. We’ll see.

Ice Cube then spoke about Black Lives Matter and said he sees the movement as important for reasons other than run-of-the-mill “gun violence” and “black-on-black crime.” He said Black Lives Matters is about “authorities killing citizens,” adding, “It’s a whole different thing when the government or the system is killing you as a citizen, and that’s why we need to speak up.”

The irony in his words is so thick I am choking on it. ~ AmmoLand

How Thomas Jefferson Responded to Islam in 1801 Puts Barack H. Obama to Shame

Leave a comment

This is from Supreme Patriot.

A part of history Barry and the DemocRats will never tell anyone about.

The radical Islamic jihadists that make up the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are engaged in a war to reestablish the former Islamic Caliphate and spread their version of fundamentalist Islam around the world.

 This is really nothing new, as radical Islamists have been waging jihad against “infidel” unbelievers since their inception in 800 AD.As our current Islamist-sympathizer president, Barack Obama, wages a “phony war” against the Islamic State and apologizes to Muslims around the world on behalf of so-called American imperialism, he has done little more than encourage the Islamists by allowing them to set the Middle East on fire.

 Obama should really pick up a history book sometime, and read about how one of his predecessors, and one of our nation’s Founding Fathers, handled the threat posed by radical Islamic jihadists, way back in 1801.The Young Cons recently shared a short history lesson about how Thomas Jefferson responded to radical Islamic kidnappings, beheadings, and extortion, long before oil or American imperialism were concerns for our fledgling country that was just trying to survive.The threat that Jefferson was compelled to face off against originated from what was called the Berber states, or Barbary Coast, a collection of semi-autonomous Islamic states in North Africa that were part of the greater Ottoman Empire, including Algiers, Morocco, Tripoli, and Tunis.

The Barbary states had a habit of sending out pirate ships to attack and capture merchant ships passing through the Mediterranean Sea.  They would kidnap the crews of the ship and either hold them for high ransoms from their home countries, or force them to convert to Islam, or simply kill them.

In 1786, while serving as an Ambassador for the new United States, Jefferson asked Tripoli’s Ambassador to Great Britain what right the Barbary states had that allowed them to kidnap and slaughter the innocent crews of passing merchant ships.

According to Jefferson, Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja replied that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Qur’an, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman [Muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

In essence, the Ambassador from Tripoli stated that their religion, Islam, gave them the right to kidnap and murder and enslave those who held different beliefs.  Jefferson took this information to heart and remembered it well.  He also spent time studying the Koran himself, to gain a better understanding of the enemy his young nation was facing.

The ‘Forgotten Americans’ Are Engaged and the GOP Must Not Fail Them Again

1 Comment

This is from Fox Nation.

We the silent majority are mad as Hell and we will not stand by and let the Establishment Republicans hand to 2016 election to the DemocRats.

One thing is for sure this 2016 presidential race, the “silent majority” is no longer silent, and everybody knows it.  But who are these people?  Before President Richard Nixon called them the “silent majority,” he called them the “forgotten Americans.”

The forgotten Americans love their families and want a better life for their kids.  The forgotten Americans work hard—they weren’t born on 3rd base and thought they hit a triple.  They worship their God and they go to church.  They pay their taxes and obey the law.

The forgotten Americans believe in American exceptionalism.  When America’s security is threatened, they are always the first to volunteer to defend her.  They understand and appreciate the sacrifices their forefathers made to give them a land of opportunity and freedom.  And they respect and appreciate those in the military and in law enforcement who put on the uniform everyday to protect those freedoms and keep us safe.

Yes, the forgotten Americans love their country, but today believe their government and its leaders have let them down.  They see Judeo-Christian values under attack.  They are concerned about the erosion of the freedoms they cherish.  They worry about America’s economy and each has a family member or knows someone who has looked so long for a job that our government doesn’t even consider them unemployed anymore.
