  4. Speaking of, quite literally, outdoor shooting ranges, how many know that in upstate Sullivan County NY veterans of Israel’s IDF were training NYC Jewish militants in the use of automatic weapons and commando tactics some years ago? Not one peep from Chuck “Gun Control” Schumer and the rest of New York’s anti-Second Amendment crowd, of course. Took place at something with the mocking name of Camp Hilldale. Not all photos scrubbed yet, with some group shots still up of the guys smugly looking into the cameras with real automatic weapons at the ready. Previous but now apparently scrubbed photos showed them practicing military assaults using live ammo in the woods directly bordering on family neighborhoods. Those charged with felonies were given a sentence so meaningless it amounted to a license to continue; as for example being allowed to continue possessing rifles and ammunition after felony fire arms convictions and getting certificates disallowing their convictions from being considered in job apps, etc, on the grounds of disability. The camp had armed guards who spied on neighbors, taking down license plate numbers, etc, so it appears they had friends in local gov to get names. Early on, locals who filed complaints with the town and county suspiciously found themselves and their children threatened. My guess is that if those militants had been Christians they’d have been massacred by the FBI using armored vehicles and attack helicopters.

    On a separate but relevant note, a ‘CFR’ delegation is secretly negotiating with the Chinese to override Trump’s (job) protectionist policies and continue the rape of our working men and women so the ‘Wall Street’ parasites can continue drinking the economic lifeblood of this country until it’s time to bail under the protection of their private militias who will not be subject to confiscation, you can bet on that.


  5. Rahm, call Sheriff Scott and see if you get him to become your Chief of Police.

  7. Chicago has very strict gun control laws. Chicago is the murder capitol of America. Why? Because the decent honest citizens do not have guns to defend themselves. Lock up the criminals, crazies and the crooked politicians. Then let the decent honest citizens have guns! Problem solved!
