British Lawmaker: London Terrorist’s Religion Is ‘Utterly And Completely’ Irrelevant

2 Comments

H/T The Daily Caller.

Spoken like a real mental midget the terrorist’s religion is relevant.

Because he is a follower of the Pedophile Mohammed and the cult of death aka Islam. 

British Lawmaker Lord Digby Jones does not believe the religion of the London attacker is pertinent, The Washington Post reports.

Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation.

You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared. He continued, “If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism, I think the fact that the man is a Muslim is utterly and completely irrelevant.” Other critics said Khan’s quote was mischaracterized because he also emphasized that living in a big city also “means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities, it means the security services being ready, but also it means exchanging ideas and best practice.”

British Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed that the attacker, who killed four and injured 40 Wednesday, was a known Muslim extremist to British intelligence services. The Islamic State’s official propaganda arm, Amaq news agency, also claimed responsibility for the attack Thursday calling him a “soldier of the caliphate.”

Massad Ayoob: 5 Things To Know After A Defensive Shooting

1 Comment

H/T The Daily Caller.

This is some very good advice.

Massad Ayoob, Gun Digest

Never forget that when you shoot someone, however necessarily and justifiably, you look an awful lot like a killer and he looks an awful lot like a victim. The stereotype can take hold quickly if you don’t act to let the authorities – from the first responding officer to the designated lead investigator – know what happened. The old saying “You only get one chance to make a first impression” is absolutely true here.

Decades ago, I developed a five-point checklist of things I feel the righteous shooter needs to establish as soon as possible in the aftermath. It has been widely adopted, sometimes with attribution and sometimes without, and is now recommended by entities ranging from the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network to the US Concealed Carry Association. I’m rather proud of that.

Five-Point Checklist

  1. Establish the active dynamic. That is, let the authorities know immediately what happened here. If you have harmed someone in self-defense, always remember that the active dynamic is not what you did to him, it’s what he was trying to do to you or another victim. The active dynamic is his action that forced your lawful response. It’s not, “I shot him.” It’s, “This man tried to kill me.” Or, “This man attacked my wife.” Whatever it was that led to your use of force.This makes it clear that the guy on the ground doing a convincing imitation of a victim is in fact the criminal perpetrator. It makes it clear that you, the person with the smoking gun who just shot someone, are in fact the intended victim. If one or more of your attackers has left the scene, explain that now, and give their description. It’s going to be hard for people to see you as the innocent party if you failed to let police know that a violent criminal was at large.
  2. Advise the police that you will sign the complaint. There are two roles open in this particular play: victim and perpetrator. As noted, appearances can create mistaken role reversal if things aren’t immediately clarified. By making a statement to the police to the effect of “I will sign the complaint,” you reinforce the fact that you are the victim-complainant, the good guy or gal, and the person you’re signing the complaint on is the bad guy who forced you to harm him in legitimate defense of self or others. (Note: I would not advise using the phrase “I will press charges.” The reason is that legal terminology varies slightly jurisdiction to jurisdiction. While in many jurisdictions it is indeed the complainant who presses charges, there are some places where the local terminology is such that the prosecutor “presses charges.” If you inadvertently find yourself in one of those places and say “I will press charges,” it sounds to the police as if you have delusions of being the elected chief prosecutor, and you won’t be off to a good start. “I will sign the complaint” is neutral and universal.)
  3. Point out the evidence. The scene will be chaotic. Witnesses will be trampling the scene. So will paramedics and police officers. I’ve seen cases of the bad guy’s gun being picked up by his accomplice or by a well-meaning neighbor who didn’t want to leave it where a child could find it. I’ve seen spent casings kicked away from their original resting place, or picked up in the treads of emergency personnel’s boots or the wheels of an ambulance gurney, thus altering the dimensions of the shooting scene and making it look like something it wasn’t. The sooner you point out the evidence to the first responding officers, the more likely it is to be secured. When you’ve done the right thing, evidence helps you.
  4. Point out the witnesses. Witnesses worry about having to lose time from work to testify in court, or being the target for vengeance by criminals. A lot of them “don’t want to get involved.” Once they leave the scene unidentified, their testimony that would have helped to prove your innocence leaves with them. Point out the witnesses to the police at the first opportunity. (Some have asked, “What if the witness is a friend of the attacker and lies about what happened?” The fact is, he was going to do that anyway, so you haven’t lost anything. However, your having pointed him out to the police can be seen as an indication that you believed in your own innocence, or you wouldn’t have steered the police to him, and that can’t hurt.)
  5. Politely decline further questioning until you have consulted an attorney. Studies show that, in the immediate aftermath of a life-threatening encounter, we may forget some things or get some details wrong. The questions to you will come at random as they occur to the officer, and you will answer them in the same order; in reviewing the cop’s notes and his recollection of the discussion later, this can create the false illusion that you were giving a narrative of events in the order in which they occurred, which of course is not the case. But later, when you do narrate events in the sequence of their occurrence, it creates a false perception that you have changed your story. Often, very frightening things that happened are blocked in short term memory by a subconscious that doesn’t want to recall them; when you mention something later that you didn’t mention at the scene, it sounds made up. You don’t want to answer detailed questions as to exact words spoken, distances, or time frames. None of us are human tape recorders. The tunnel vision that afflicts well over half of people caught up in something like a gunfight creates the literal optical illusion that things and people appear closer and larger than they are. If your memory tells you your attacker was six feet away when you shot him but he turns out to have been six yards away, you sound like a liar. Tachypsychia is likewise very common, the sense of things going into slow motion. It seemed to you as if the fight took a whole minute, and you say so, but a security camera shows it was actually only ten seconds, and now you look like a liar. The involved victim who had to fight for his or her very survival is the worst possible witness for measuring things in feet or inches, or counting how many shots were fired.

Experts recommend 24 to 48 hours between one of these “critical incidents,” as they are now euphemistically called in the emergency services, and when the participant is subjected to a detailed debriefing. The Force Science Institute recommends “one full sleep cycle.”

California Student Writes Op-Ed About How Milk Is Racist Symbol

Leave a comment

H/T The Daily Caller.

California State University has done a good job of brainwashing this college stupid.

 

A student at the California State University – Long Beach recently penned an op-ed opining on the racist undertones of drinking milk.

In a Daily 49er article published March 13, entitled, “Milk new symbol of hate?,” staff writer Samantha Diaz writes that many Americans “have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts.”

Diaz says, “It may not surprise you that the United States was founded on racism. That every institution we uphold has racist roots that are sometimes difficult to catch and even harder to fight against. This phenomenon affects our voter ID laws, state testing and, yes, even our federal dietary guidelines.”

She adds, “The federal endorsement of milk in American diets contributes to the problem by uncritically pushing people to drink milk, despite the potential detriment it has on non-white people’s health.”

Diaz writes that drinking milk at the level of the federal dietary guidelines may actually hurt the health of African-Americans, who do not necessarily need as much calcium as whites do.

The writer also brings up internet trolls who showed up to Shia LaBeouf’s “He Will Not Divide Us” livestream to drink milk on camera.

“In an effort to prove their masculinity, a dozen middle-aged white men showed up shirtless, shouting about how they need to ‘secure the future of our diet and the future for milk drinking.’”

Finally, the article ends by proclaiming, “Until we recognize the racist roots in our own systems of government and fight to remove them, we are all in part responsible for the white, creamy form of racism currently taking hold in our country.”

The Daily 49er isn’t the only publication to cover the pressing issue of racism in milk consumption. Mic.com published an article last month titled, “Milk is the new, creamy symbol of white racial purity in Donald Trump’s America.”

SORRY, CHRISTIANS: The Bible Fails ‘Inclusive Language’ Standards At Evangelical College

1 Comment

H/T The Daily Caller. 

Revelation 22:18-19 King James Version (KJV)

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of

Bethel University had better take hee to God’s word about changing the Bible.

Revelation 22:18-19 King James Version (KJV)

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

‘art’ by Eric Owens

An evangelical Christian university in Minnesota is encouraging its professors to stop using words with masculine connotations — such as “man” and “mankind” — because those words aren’t sufficiently “inclusive.”

Bethel University in St. Paul is the school, reports Campus Reform.

The document asking faculty members to avoid using masculine terminology is entitled “Language is a Powerful Tool.”

“To be clear in our Christian witness, the Bethel faculty encourages the use of inclusive language,” the document explains.

Professors at 6,000-student Bethel University should “avoid using masculine terms to refer to people who may be either male or female.”

They should “employ inclusive language and images when speaking about or addressing human beings in academic work, public discourse, classroom discussion, college documents and publications and in worship experiences.”

“Use a substitute for words like ‘man’ or ‘mankind’” when making general references to people, the guide says. “English is sometimes awkward” but “words like ‘humans,’ ‘humanity,’ ‘beings,’ ‘people” and ‘all’ are often adequate substitutes.”

Obviously, Bethel University’s guidance for using inclusive language in “documents and publications and in worship experiences” runs into considerable difficulty in any encounter with the Bible, the collected sacred texts of Christianity.

In Genesis 1:26, for example, the New International Version of the Bible reports God as saying, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness.”

In Genesis 1:27, the New International Version relates this information: “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”

The older King James Version of the Bible presents even more problems for “inclusive” language. For example, that Bible’s version of Genesis 1:25 reads, in part: “And God made the beast of the earth after his kind.”

The New Testament also creates thorny problems for advocates of “inclusive” gender language. For example, Matthew 18:11 reads: “For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.”

The very exact phrase “son of man” interweaves in a very critical way throughout several Old Testament and New Testament books, including Ezekiel, Daniel, the Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles and Revelation.

In any case, Bethel University’s faculty language guide also urges professors to avoid several phrases including “man and wife.”

Other sections of the guide address “inclusive language” as it relates to age, race, disabilities and social class.

Bethel University’s faculty committee on family and gender equity created the school document on “inclusive” language.

The document repeatedly stresses that its advice is voluntary and not mandatory.

“Our goal is to encourage a humble and Christ-like use of language, not to fetter specific disciplines,” the document explains.

A single year of tuition, fees and room and board at Bethel University currently costs $46,550.

McDonald’s Employee Jumps Out Drive-Thru Window To Save Police Officer

Leave a comment

H/T The Daily Caller.

The quick thinking and actions of Pedro Viloria help save this police officer’s life.      

 

A McDonald’s employee saved the life of a Miami, Fla. police officer by jumping out the drive-thru window Tuesday.

Pedro Viloria, the employee, noticed something odd when the off-duty officer and her two children pulled up to receive their order, reports ABC News.

Viloria said the officer seemed to have trouble breathing when she came to the drive-thru window to grab her food.

“In that moment, I thought, I’d rather save that woman’s life,” Viloria told WPLG. “I see she’s like inflating her neck, like trying to breathe, like ‘ahh,’ and basically I thought something was going wrong.”

Surveillance video shows the car pulling away and running into the median; the police officer was unconscious at the time.

“Her kids were screaming, ‘Mother, mother, stop it, mother what are you doing?’” Viloria said.

Viloria quickly jumped out the window and raced over to the car. He ordered the children to call 911 while he headed back to the restaurant to get more help.

A firefighter entered the McDonald’s as Viloria was looking for more help. The off-duty firefighter performed CPR and used an automated external defibrillator machine to bring the woman back.

“I thought if these kids lose their mother today, that’s going to be tragic,” Viloria said. “It is what a hero does. If I needed to die to save that woman, I would have done it.”

McDonald’s praised their employee for his quick thinking in rescuing the officer.

“I think I speak for our McDonald’s family when I say how proud we are of Pedro. He is an excellent employee, so it didn’t surprise me that he took immediate action and jumped through a window to help save this woman,” the company said in a statement.

Wisconsin Says At Least 60 People Voted Illegally In Primary

Leave a comment

H/T The Daily Caller.

More proof the President Trump was correct when he said there is massive voter fraud that has happened.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission says at least 60 people illegally voted during its presidential primary.

Staff at the commission conducted the investigation after receiving several referrals of voter fraud from municipal clerks after the primary and general elections, according to the Associated Press.

The reported cases of illegal voting involved 17-year-olds spanning 29 counties across the state.

Commission spokesperson Reid Magney said the teenagers were mistaken of their eligibility and that they weren’t trying to circumvent the law, which inherently infers that the workers at the polling places were either negligent or oblivious to state rules.

“It wasn’t a case of anyone sneaking in,” Magney said, according to the AP. “It was a misunderstanding of the law,” referring to the notion that the teens thought if they turned 18 ahead of the general election, they could vote in the primary.

Law enforcement agrees.

Kewaunee County District Attorney Andrew Naze is not pressing charges against the 17-year-olds who were referred to him by clerks because he believes it wasn’t out of malice, but rather a false impression.

The commission is expected to approve the report Tuesday and then send it to the legislature for further review. (RELATED: Global Bureaucrats Invited By Obama To Inspect US Elections)

The reports of the 60 or so people voting illegally comes after President Donald Trump called for an investigation into voter fraud in January.

Trump originally claimed that 3 to 5 million people voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election, despite the fact he was victorious. Trump was the first Republican presidential candidate to win the state of Wisconsin since former President Ronald Reagan in 1984.

“In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally,” Trump tweeted in November.

“Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California – so why isn’t the media reporting on this? Serious bias – big problem!” he continued in a separate tweet.

“Trump Slump” Proved False By Strong Background Check Numbers

1 Comment

H/T The Daily Caller.

The number’s shoot holes(pun intended)in the gun sales slump narratives. 

Rumors of the “Trump Slump” in gun sales have been exaggerated. Recent reports point to three consecutive months of declining NICS background checks (a proxy for gun sales, though not all background checks are connected to a purchase and a single purchase may include multiple firearms) as evidence that President Trump’s election marks the end in a period that saw background checks monthly records broken regularly.

After eight years of an administration led by the “greatest gun salesman in history,” the shift away from an anti-gun agenda has likely eased the drive to buy guns, right?

Not necessarily. 

First, a record-setting number of background checks were completed on Black Friday 2016 – after Trump won the election. 

Perhaps more importantly, February 2017 NICS data contradicts the “Trump Slump” claims.

Examining the number of background checks completed in just the month of February for the last 18 years reveals that February 2017 was, in fact, the 3rd busiest February ever. Yes, the number of background checks in February 2017 is lower than it was in February 2016 – which happened to be the fourth busiest month of all time for NICS background checks.

Comparing current data to the record high points doesn’t prove that sales have plummeted; it does indicate that the number of background checks performed – and so the number of permit applications and/or firearms purchases – is still at near-record levels. February 2017, one of the months cited as proof of the “Trump Slump” was actually one of the 15 busiest months ever for background checks. 

December 2016 – after Trump and his party won the White House and Congress – was the 3rd busiest month ever. The “Trump Slump” allegation also points to a 17% drop in the number of checks performed in December 2016 from those performed in December 2015.

The narrative doesn’t mention that December 2015 featured the most background checks processed in a single month. Ever. 

While “Trump Slump” is a convenient phrase for a headline, it simply does not apply to background checks or gun sales.  

Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the “lobbying” arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
