Protest Sparks Bloody Fight At Capitol In Sacramento

Posted by Tina

Two, or is it three, groups clashed on the steps of the capitol in sacramento today according to KCRA:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) —Ten people were injured during a clash between anti-fascists and white supremacists at the State Capitol Sunday, authorities said. Two people suffered life-threatening stab wounds were taken to area hospitals, officials said. Nine men and one woman, ages 19 to 58, were injured during the fight. At least three people were stabbed at the State Capitol while others were stabbed in a neighboring park. Fire crews report patients’ injuries range from stab wounds to lacerations.

The Traditionalist Workers Party had a scheduled protest at noon when a group of counter-protesters showed up to demonstrate against them. More than 150 anti-fascists confronted about 25 white supremacists in front of the State Capitol, police said. The protesters threw pieces of concrete, rocks and smashed the glass at the Capitol. A large fight broke out where people carrying sticks rushed into the area of the rally, according to Sacramento Fire Department spokesperson Chris Harvey. A few members of the Traditionalist Workers Party were hit with concrete and sent bleeding into the building.

Several members of an anti-fascist group assaulted KCRA 3’s Mike Luery and his photographer John Breedlove, making it clear they did not want documentation of their destruction of the Capitol. “Well that’s what you get for messing with the Black Bloc,” a protester said.

The Black Bloc wear all black clothing with hoodies over their heads and bandanas over their faces to mask their identities, officials said. “Typically we will see them bring some type of weapons, whether they be rocks, bottles and backpacks — could be as much as a knife or a gun — and they will come in with the intent of creating chaos or anarchy,” Sacramento police Lt. Dennis Joy said. “They want to damage businesses (and) break windows.”

Read about the Traditionalist Workers Party here, although the group seems to be newly formed and the site is very simple. It’s founder is purported to be Matthew Heimbach. Heimbach admits to pushing a black woman at a Trump rally, claiming Black Lives Matter started the mayhem that led to the act.

Golden State Skinheads were in attendance but the various stories I read didn’t make it clear whether they were another group or the Traditionalist Workers Party.

“[Video] features yours truly helping the crowd drive out one of the women who had been pushing, shoving, barking, and screaming at the attendees for the better part of an hour,” he wrote in a post on the website for the Traditionalist Youth Network, a group that promotes white supremacy.

Read more about the sometimes anarchist oriented Black Bloc here:

Black blocs are “ad hoc assemblages of individuals or affinity groups that last for the duration of a march or rally” in which members retain their anonymity via head-to-toe black clothing. While there may be uses of force, “more often than not they are content to protest peacefully” with the main objective being to “embody within a demonstration a radical critique of the economic and political system.” A black bloc can be one person or thousands. It should be noted the black bloc isn’t a group, but rather a tactic to allow for radicals to engage in direct action without fear of arrest; while many black blockers are anarchist, not all of them are. …

…The first time the black bloc made a major move in North America was during a January 1991 rally against the Persian Gulf war where the World Bank building was targeted. Black bloc tactics were also used by the militant anti-racist group Anti-Racist Action, which focuses on directly confronting neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

The skin heads apparently had the permit. The photo’s I saw showed a few bloody skinheads. No word about numbers of injured by group affiliation. This is nuts!

Perspectives: Hindsight Reveals Our Enemy and It’s Aims and Obama’s Failure to Be Effective in the Fight

Posted by Tina

A witness told investigators that Mateen had been a devotee of videos featuring the late al-Qaeda firebrand Anwar al-Awlaki — a jihadist who, before finally being killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen, mysteriously slipped through the FBI’s net several times over the years, beginning with his apparently conspiratorial meetings with some of the 9/11 suicide hijackers – Andrew McCarthy

The above came from an article derived from a speech by Andrew McCarthy, National Review, “Defenseless in the Face of Our Enemies.” As I read through it I suddenly felt compelled to revisit the speech delivered before Congress by George W. Bush following 911. The two speeches both point to the need to clearly identify the enemy and create an effective strategy. They point to the necessity of an unbending and pointed resolve to pursue this enemy and determine who is “with us” and who is “against us.”

The exit of president Bush from the world stage in 2008 ushered in a new approach to the Islamic terrorist threat. Bush handed the baton to his predecessor having nearly decimated al Qaeda and a stable Middle East. The arrival of president Obama brought with it many changes. What has happened since his arrival in our approach to this vile enemy of freedom and humanity, in the lexicon, and in the explosion of politically correct animosity and derision aimed at fellow Americans has been stunning. I am sickened in particular at the way our government has played into the hands of the enemy over the last seven years. While our leaders and their supporters hand-wring over words that specifically and correctly describe our enemy, our enemy has grown in power, influence and strength exactly as Bush described it would if we did not act and act decisively with strength and undying resolve following 911.

I strongly encourage you read both speeches for context, McCarthy first followed by Bush’s speech.
Here’s a bit of McCarthy:

While there are various ways of interpreting Islam, many of them benign and reformist, sharia supremacism is not so much a religion as a radical political ideology with a religious veneer. It does not recognize a division between mosque and state, or between spiritual and political or civic spheres of life. In this aggressive, fundamentalist construction of Islam, the mosque is not a mere “house of worship” where believers gather strictly “to pray.” Far from it. The mosque is the political and ideological center of what, in the West, is an anti-assimilationist movement bent on conquest, not prayerful pluralism.

Hassan al-Bannah, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, the world’s most influential, most sophisticated sharia-supremacist movement, taught a farsighted form of ground-up revolution. It would plant its flag and grow outward in enclaves, small towns, and — eventually — big cities, districts, counties, states, provinces, and countries across the globe.

And where would it plant its flag in every place it sought conquest? Bannah instructed that the mosque and its companion Islamic community center would be “the axis of the movement” wherever the movement took root.

Andrew McCarthy prosecuted the original World Trade Center truck bomb case. His knowledge and understanding of our enemy is both vast and insightful. The following is an excerpt from the transcript of Bush’s speech following 911:

The terrorists are traitors to their own faith, trying, in effect, to hijack Islam itself.

The enemy of America is not our many Muslim friends. It is not our many Arab friends. Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists and every government that supports them.

Our war on terror begins with al Qaeda, but it does not end there.

It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated.

Americans are asking “Why do they hate us?”

They hate what they see right here in this chamber: a democratically elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms: our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other.

They want to overthrow existing governments in many Muslim countries such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan. They want to drive Israel out of the Middle East. They want to drive Christians and Jews out of vast regions of Asia and Africa.

These terrorists kill not merely to end lives, but to disrupt and end a way of life. With every atrocity, they hope that America grows fearful, retreating from the world and forsaking our friends. They stand against us because we stand in their way.

We’re not deceived by their pretenses to piety.

We have seen their kind before. They’re the heirs of all the murderous ideologies of the 20th century. By sacrificing human life to serve their radical visions, by abandoning every value except the will to power, they follow in the path of fascism, Nazism and totalitarianism. And they will follow that path all the way to where it ends in history’s unmarked grave of discarded lies. Americans are asking, “How will we fight and win this war?”

We will direct every resource at our command — every means of diplomacy, every tool of intelligence, every instrument of law enforcement, every financial influence, and every necessary weapon of war — to the destruction and to the defeat of the global terror network.

Now, this war will not be like the war against Iraq a decade ago, with a decisive liberation of territory and a swift conclusion. It will not look like the air war above Kosovo two years ago, where no ground troops were used and not a single American was lost in combat.

Our response involves far more than instant retaliation and isolated strikes. Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign unlike any other we have ever seen. It may include dramatic strikes visible on TV and covert operations secret even in success.

We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place until there is no refuge or no rest.

And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation in every region now has a decision to make: Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists.

Are the people around the world that favor an appeasing approach with us or are they against us?

Are those that cry Xenophobia with us or against us?

Have the terrorists advanced their aims in the last seven years?

Are they winning their war against the West and western values?

Are we in the west better off today than we were at the end of the Bush presidency?

The answers to those questions are obvious and disturbing. The enemy has advanced it’s goals and we are not better off.

Hillary is an extension of the Obama administration, an administration that has failed to effectively fight and keep us safe. She should never be president.

Hold on to Your Hat – Republican Tax Plan Includes IRS Reform!

IRS2Posted by Tina

We conservative Republicans have choices to make. It will require letting go of past grievances with the Republican Party to ensure that progressive Democrats are not returned to power in Congress, Hillary loses her bid for the White House, and Paul Ryan and his troops return to save us all from this miserable economy. Just in time…an article in The Free Beacon offers help to get over our disgust and anger…Dick Armey just might weep:

House Republicans, led by Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.), have introduced their tax reform plan, which would simplify the tax code so it could fit on a postcard.

“For years, hard working American taxpayers have asked Washington for a tax code so simple and fair and understandable that it could fit on a postcard,” said Rep. Kevin Brady (R., Texas) who chairs the House Ways and Means Committee. “That is exactly what we propose.”

The plan would lower taxes for Americans at every income level and would limit the number of tax brackets to three. It would lower the corporate tax rate from the highest in the world to 20 percent, and would lower the top individual tax rate to 33 percent.

Read the article for greater detail, in the meantime LISTEN UP cause this is a winner:

Finally, the plan would restructure the IRS with the goals of clearing out bureaucracy and cutting down on intimidation.

“A simpler, fairer tax code demands a simpler, fairer tax collector,” Brady said. “We will bust up the IRS as it is today, redesigning it into three smaller, more focused units to serve businesses, to provide state of the art taxpayer service for families and individuals and quickly and affordably resolving tax disputes.” (emphasis mine)

Maybe the Justice Department won’t do anything about the gross misconduct of IRS Commissioner Koskinen, that Lerner broad, and others but this would feel like justice for a long string of IRS offenses to me.

California Gun Grabbers Going Too Far!

by Jack

Here come the gun grabbers. Gavin Newsome, the former philandering San Francisco Mayor and our current Lt. Gov., has obtained the necessary 600,000 signatures to qualify his proposition for the November ballot.   That initiative will force a ridiculously expensive background check on the buyers of ammunition.  It will also force gun owners with legal large capacity magazines (over 10 rounds) to turn them in or face arrest.  No other state has entertained such restrictive gun laws, but that doesn’t bother Newsome who is prepared to make it as tough as possible on law abiding gun owners.

But, here’s the dumbest part, there is no proof that the proposed laws will make Californian’s safer, even though that’s the claim.  In addition, California is ready to enforce a 2007 law regarding micro stamping of firing pins.   According to Guns.com, “California Attorney General Kamala Harris (another S.F. liberal transplant) announced on Friday that a 2007 microstamping bill signed into law by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger could finally be enforced.

“The patents have been cleared, which means that this very important technology will help us as law enforcement in identifying and locating people who have illegally used firearms,” Harris said at a Los Angeles news conference.

For clarification, gun microstamping is a technical process that uses laser technology to engrave microscopic gun information such as make, model and serial number on the tip of the gun’s firing pin. Desired information can also be engraved on the breech face or other parts of a firearm.”

The very few number incidents where this law would be of any value to law enforcement has never been weighed against the costs to gun owners and the impact on gun sales in California.   Many out of state gun manufacturers simply refuse to do business in California anymore because of overly restrictive, absurd, expensive and often times redundant state laws.  This has the effect of a Constitutional prohibition called, restraint of trade.

Guns used in crimes are rarely legally obtained, so micro stamping would not have much value in those cases.  However, the micro stamping can be easily removed, rendering the expensive modification absolutely useless.   This lame excuse to punish gun owners is just another overreach by government.  Californians should be outraged at such blatant trickery foisted on them by gun-grabbers.

Want to be safer?  Here’s an idea: Instead of trying to indirectly ban guns using phony, do nothing laws,  we should ban gun grabbers like Harris and Newsome from ever holding public office again.

The Brits Choose Freedom and Sovereignty!

brexitPosted by Tina

Brexit wins in Britain’s fight to remain in the EU or leave it, striking an impressive blow for freedom, culture and sovereignty!

I think this mirrors the fight going on in America and could hint at the outcome in November. Ordinary citizens both here and across the pond are fed up with appeasement terrorist policy, irresponsible handling of a refugee crisis created by leftist war mongering, socialist solutions for the economy.

Our stock market was down. Don’t panic, the market sits exactly where it was just ten days or so ago. This could cause a number of chaotic situations for businesses and government alike but it will be ironed out. In the end I believe England has done the right thing and could lead the waylead the way for a better Europe: “The Brexit contagion: How France, Italy and the Netherlands now want their referendum too.”

Is this the first shot fired for sanity and freedom!

Democrats, How Will This Make Us Safer?

How will what they are demanding make us safer?

“Democrat members are certainly free to stage a sit-in and shut down House floor activities as they have done,” Gowdy wrote. “What would be infinitely more productive would be asking this administration and the Department of Justice in particular why prosecutions of current gun law violations has decreased under their watch.” (Now there’s a good question, but will they answer it?)

“There are already broad categories of persons prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition and those lists go largely without prosecution,” he reminded his colleagues from across the aisle.

“Now House Democrats are asking for yet another list of persons — this time without any due process rights — so this administration can fail to enforce that list of laws too,” he concluded. “How does that make us safer?”

Trey Gowdy is absolutely correct, both in that there are already a significant number of gun control laws on the books that go largely unenforced and that what Democrats are demanding would do nothing to keep us safer.

In truth, this lame stunt by the House Dems is nothing more than a bunch of 60s hippy holdovers attempting to relive their glory years while waving bloody shirts and banging the drum of gun control in a crass effort to mobilize their largely disenfranchised base.

It is also a blatant and gross exploitation of a terrible tragedy to raise funds off of spilled blood while demanding new laws that won’t prevent blood from being spilled again.

They should be ashamed, if they had any shame.

Do They Think We’re That Stupid?

by Jack

There seems to be quite a bit of controversy over Arab-Muslims immigrating to the USA asjohn-kerry-640x427 refugees. On one side we have Secretary of State, John Kerry, President Barack Obama and candidate Hillary Clinton advising the public that there is zero evidence Arab refugees going through the screening process, pose a greater risk than other groups. On the other side, we keep receiving news about terrorist incidents involving Arab immigrants to a number of host countries, including, but not limited to, Belgium, Holland, Germany, France, Sweden and England.

muslimsinswedenIt’s worth noting our intelligence agencies seem to disagree with this low risk assessment, and that includes John Brennan, CIA Chief. In a statement to Congress last week, Brennan warned that ISIS has a number of Western assets that could easily use refugee status to infiltrate into the United States and carry out terror attacks.   The immigration proponents have yet to explain their logic for making such blanket assumptions. Further, they have failed to address why a number of European countries have been experiencing a spike in crime, assimilation problems and terrorist attacks connected to Arab-Muslim immigration.

Too bad there isn’t a way for the proponents like Clinton, Obama and Kerry, to offermuslimss democracy-replacing-shariah themselves as test subjects to prove the validity of their opinions. But, that won’t happen. They want us to take the risks and face random terror attacks from any possible location at any possible time. Meanwhile, they live protected behind layers of security.

The risk of terrorism is a legitimate concern, but we also should know by now that a substantial number of Muslims worldwide place Islam and Sharia law before any nation’s government and laws.  Given that reality; it would seem that Muslim’s would not be coming here to embrace our Constitution and the many freedoms we hold sacred.

ObamaandpatIf we can learn anything from the European experience with Muslims, it would be they are not going to accept assimilation very well.  It’s more likely they will be insisting on concessions from us to accommodate them.   In that context, they would not make the sort of immigrant population that has benefited past generations.

So, why would Obama want this sort of immigration if the risks are too high? Because he’s in denial. You need only look at how he was raised, and his Muslim background. Obama has this idealized version of Islam and he’s embraced this false perception to the point where he’s not objective. He sees only the good. This is why he has shielded Muslims from just criticism many times in the past. Kerry and Clinton are his political puppets. They will do and say whatever they see as being their best interests. I strongly feel if it was a choice between their political advancement and our nation’s decline, we’re going to lose every time.

Trump said it right when he said God help us if Hillary ever gets into the White House.

Obama Slams Supreme Court Decision Upholding Lower Court Immigration Ruling – Plays Race Card

barack-obama-13Posted by Tina

The Supreme Court’s 4-4 decision on an immigration case today deferred back to a lower court ruling in a case brought by several states. The ruling blocks the imposition of Obama’s program allowing undocumented parents of children born in the US to remain in the United States for three years and to apply for work permits. The decision prevents the administration from implementing and expanding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

The President is speaking on the ruling now and he’s really making me angry. It isn’t the decision or its ramifications that have me fuming. The decision is what it is an our immigration issues have yet to be resolved by Congress. I’m just sick and tired of Obama’s racist shtick. He’s framing his opinion as an issue of bigotry AS HE ALWAYS DOES! He’s deceitfully playing to the ignorant voter who will believe his political divisive tripe! Obama is a shameless partisan bigot and a liar!

The states in this lawsuit were not motivated to keep “people who don’t look like we do” or “don’t pray like we do” from coming into our country as the President is saying! They were motivated by federal policies that put the states under financial and legal stresses and burdens. They were expressing a strong need to control our borders and to manage immigration wisely. They were expressing frustration that the President, who bypassed the Congress, has no concern about the negative unintended consequences his executive order brings to local governments, schools, hospitals and safety net programs. The states were expressing their dismay that the President of the United States of America does not respect our laws, our constitutional process, or the citizens of this nation. The states were using the courts to address what they believe was an illegal act taken by our President. He should respect that!

The President is wrong in his ugly assertions of bigotry, racism and hatred. America has always been a melting pot and always will be, but we are also a nation of laws and we have survived, thrived, and remained free in part because of the peoples’ embrace and support of the rule of law. We have remained stable and free because we have not been STUPID about immigration and our borders. The action taken by President Obama, who as a “Constitutional scholar” knows better, reflects his preference for a flexible constitution, a constitution that allows the smooth moves of dictators and tyrants to run roughshod on the people. The presidents open arms policy is not only stupid, it insults the American people…it is irresponsible and unpatriotic!.

We are talking about a man who facilitates the systematic erosion and destruction of our immigration laws and policy. We are talking about a party that is complicit in this through federal and local policies that invite people to enter our country illegally. It isn’t just policy either, it is a general attitude! It is attitude that creates an atmosphere of lawlessness and lawbreaking with impunity. Liberals encourage people to come and remain without fear of deportation.

I do not blame those who break our laws to come here for this problem. I blame the politicians who do not respect or even try to uphold our immigration laws, who encourage illegal entry and award lawbreakers by giving them free healthcare, welfare, housing, food stamps, K-12 education, college, drivers licenses and voting privilege. I blame local politicians that create safe zones in their cities.

The next president will likely have an opportunity to appoint Supreme Court judges. Our votes in November will be the difference between restoring control of immigration policy and controlling our borders or continuing in the politics to throw our borders open not only to “families” and good people “looking for a better life,” but to terrorists, drug cartels, human traffickers, rapists, murderers, and common criminals. Our votes will determine whether we open our doors to people who come here legally with a strong desire to become Americans and/or work here respecting our laws and values or whether we let anyone flood in to overrun our country, abuse our services, commit crimes, hide, and flaunt our laws. Rats too “hide in the shadows!”

The president’s divisive, race baiting remarks tell me the only person worthy of our votes in November is Donald Trump. He’s the only candidate who is willing to talk about this issue honestly and to address the sentiment, if not the policies, that concerned Americans are feeling and desire. Hillary doesn’t speak honestly to this issue. She called this decision “heartbreaking.” Heartbreaking for whom, Hillary? Where is your heart for people in states overburdened by the irresponsible and political actions of self interested politicians? Where is her heart for families whose loved ones are raped or slaughtered by criminal illegals the courts turned loose on our streets under Obama’s watch? Where is her heart for the people whose kids’ lives are destroyed by heroin brought in through the open borders policies that afford easy access to the cartels? And lest you think I’m only interested in the lives of white kids, where are Hillary’s and Obama’s hearts for the kids in Chicago? Many of those are black kids who are experiencing double digit unemployment. Kids whose opportunities are being blunted by the influx of illegal immigrants taking available jobs AND irresponsible minimum wage demands. Kids impacted by crowded schools and upper pressure on available services.

Tell me…do…when do our leaders start thinking about how the policies they champion for votes impact the citizens they purport to serve? Tell me when do our leaders remember their vow to uphold our Constitution and laws? Tell me, when do our politicians get off their partisan butts, clear their minds, and begin to focus on what is best for the nation as a whole. The people are not served by special interest legislation and policy targeted for political self-interest. The people will are best served when policy serves us all.

Donald Trump clearly cares about America and the American people…every one of us! He cares about getting control of the border and fixing our immigration policy. Whether he can get Congress to work with him remains to be seen, however, at least we know his “heart” is in the right place and he cares about the law. It’s time to be rid of the most divisive president this nation has ever seen and it’s time to begin to throw the damn race baiting, vote buying, division building, self-serving bums out of Congress who make decisions based mostly on a race agenda and and self-interests. It’s time to turn the chaotic tide to calm seas with reasoned solutions. It’s time to elect Donald Trump or lose our nation to lawlessness and chaos…Venezuela anyone?

Dem Convention to Feature Bean Activated Greeting for Hillary’s “Rhetorical Flatulence”

baked beansWe can thank J. Soden for this one, courtesy of Wonkette:

Some lady who used to be Dr. Jill Stein’s running mate has had a very comedic idea! That idea is to fart a lot at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, because Hillary Clinton is poopy. (Have fun, Evan!)

Cheri Honkala, now with the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign, uncovered her plans to the intrepid TruthDig:

“We will be holding a massive bean supper for Bernie Sanders delegates on American Street in my Kensington neighborhood on the afternoon of July 28,” she said. “We are setting up a Clintonville there, modeled on the Hoovervilles of the 1930s where the poor and unemployed built shanty towns. The Sanders delegates, their bellies full of beans, will be able to return to the Wells Fargo Center and greet the rhetorical flatulence of Hillary Clinton with the real thing.”

Hot Dog!
