Gun control, Chiraq style: Man who fired gun & linked to deaths of two Chicago Police officers could be released soon

Perp Edward Brown: Just wanted to see if the pistol worked….or something

The perp said he “found” a pistol and “wanted to see if it worked.”

The perp is “hanging in there” after the two officers lost their lives.

Despicable.

From MyFoxChicago: The man being held in connection with the deaths of the two Chicago police officers who were killed by a train could soon be released from jail, as a community group says it’s helping to get Edward Brown released on bond.

It was four weeks ago Monday night that Brown was arrested for alleging firing the gunshots which led officers Conrad Gary and Eduardo Marmolejo onto the railroad tracks where they were hit by a train.

Brown is still in jail, needing $20,000 for release on bond. “He’s hanging in there,” said defense attorney Frank Koustoros. “You know, nobody wants to be in jail, but he’s hanging in there.”

It looks like Brown could be released very soon.

“We are planning to post bond this week, yes,” said Sharlyn Grace of Chicago Community Bond Fund. “We’re just waiting on a couple more things to come through.”

The Chicago Community Bond Fund uses donated dollars to help defendants post bond and remain free while fighting their cases. “When a case like this that’s high profile comes up, we know it’s even more important than usual that somebody really enjoys the presumption of innocence,” said Grace.

Brown was back in court Monday where prosecutors revealed he’s been indicted on the two weapons charges for which he was arrested.

Members of Brown’s family, including his mother, were in the courtroom, but through his attorney, they declined to talk about the case.

“He’s not alone in this world,” said Koustoros. “He has a lot of love and support from his family and friends.”
The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) wanted a felony murder charge.

“We are continually disappointed with the Kim Foxx administration when the police are the victims of crime,” said an FOP spokesperson.

The spokesperson added the FOP will be shocked and disappointed if Brown gets out on bond.

Vote for the Wall!

A new “caravan” of hundreds of Hondurans are heading toward the U.S.-Mexico border.

TV footage yesterday showed 600-800 people in the violent city of San Pedro Sula, Honduras, huddled together and waving Honduran flags as they began a journey that will likely take weeks or even months to reach the U.S.-Mexico border. (Reuters)

Notwithstanding the new “caravan” of invaders, the news this morning from the alphabet Hate-America TV networks is that a new national poll conducted by Connecticut’s Quinnipiac University found that:

  • A majority of American voters (55% vs. 43%) are opposed to a wall on the Mexican border, and reject every argument for the Wall.
  • An even larger majority (63% vs. 30%) favor a Democratic proposal to reopen parts of the federal government that do not involve border security while negotiating funding for the Wall.

Of course, this is the same Quinnipiac University polling that, in March 2014, claimed Fauxcahontas Elizabeth Warren, 69, to be the “hottest” U.S. politician whom Americans rated the most favorable. Hillary Clinton came in second. (See DCG’s post, “Sen. Elizabeth Warren is ‘hottest’ U.S. politicians: poll“.)

Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is calling on Americans to vote for the Wall:

  • Call 1-800-344-8082
  • Press 1, to vote for the Wall.

Go Vote!!!

Meanwhile, independent journalist Laura Loomer exposed “no border wall” Demonrat House Speaker  Nancy Pelosi’s utter hypocrisy.

Gateway Pundit reports that yesterday, Loomer brought a group of illegal immigrants from Guatemala and Mexico to Pelosi’s mansion in Napa Valley, CA, and set up a “sanctuary camp” on the lawn, with photos of Americans — including Kate Steinle — who were killed by illegal aliens.

Police were called, and evicted, i.e., deported, the group of illegals.

The next destination of Loomer and the “caravan” of illegals is the home of new California governor Gavin Newsom. LOL

Wait until you hear the details in this bill: Oregon proposal would require gun owners to obtain permits

As reported by Oregon Live: A proposal by two Oregon lawmakers to require permits for all gun owners is generating buzz online and among Republicans at the Capitol, even before it’s scheduled to be introduced at the Legislature on Monday.

It’s the brainchild of student activists connected to the movement that grew out of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, where a shooter killed 17 people nearly a year ago, according to the bill. Sen. Rob Wagner, D-Tualatin, and Rep. Andrea Salinas, D-Lake Oswego, are sponsoring it.

Wagner said the bill grew out of a meeting he and Salinas had last year with roughly 300 Oregon students following the Florida shooting. “Any opportunity for conversation around these controversial topics is really important,” Wagner said. “It’s a really important message that we listen to students … about what it’s like to go to school right now.”

The sweeping legislation would also require people to undergo background checks before purchasing or sharing ammunition and would limit ammunition purchases to 20 rounds within a 30-day period, although people could purchase and use unlimited ammunition at shooting ranges. It would ban magazines that hold more than five rounds of ammunition.

Additionally, Senate Bill 501 would require people to securely store their guns and report the loss or theft of a firearm to law enforcement within 24 hours.

If lawmakers pass the proposal, people who ignore it could face severe penalties. For example, anyone who possessed a firearm without a permit could be fine up to $6,250 and sentenced to as much as 364 days in jail.

It’s one of 11 bills dealing with firearms that are scheduled to be introduced on Monday, when lawmakers and Gov. Kate Brown return to Salem to be sworn in for their new terms. The Legislative session begins Jan. 22. Not all of the bills would regulate guns. For example, House Bill 2287 would allow school districts to allow firearm safety courses on school property.

In a press release on Friday, Rep. Bill Post, a Republican from Keizer, said the ammunition purchase limit would make it difficult for gun owners to become proficient and should worry duck hunters. Post also said he was worried the bill’s ban on magazines to hold more than five rounds of ammunition would mean “your old six-shot revolver would be required to be turned in or destroyed.”

However, the bill exempts .22-caliber revolvers and any lever-action revolver.

A separate bill is also being introduced that would require gun owners to securely store their weapons with locks and make it easier for shooting victims to sue for damages if the gun owner failed to secure the weapon, report the loss or theft of the gun in a timely manner or supervise a child using the gun.

The proposal is named after the two people killed in the 2012 Clackamas Town Center shooting and their relatives are working to pass it.

Armed woman takes out thug at Chicago bus stop

From Fox News: A 25-year-old woman with a concealed carry license shot and killed the man trying to rob her at gunpoint near a Chicago bus station Tuesday morning, police said — noting she needed just a single shot to take down the would-be robber.

The unidentified woman was at the bus stop in Chicago’s Fernwood neighborhood just after 6 a.m. when the man, identified as 19-year-old Laavion Goings, pulled a gun and attempted to rob her, WLS reported. Surveillance video from a nearby convenience store showed the woman waiting at the stop and Goings approaching her and aiming his gun, officials said.

The woman, however, was prepared. She pulled out her own weapon and shot Goings in the neck before fleeing the area to seek help.

Police found Goings about a block away. He was taken to a hospital where he later died.

“It’s tragic that he did die, but the lady had to do what she had to do,” Bianca Daniel, who lives near the shooting scene, told WLS. “She’s on a bus stop, probably going to work, you know, and she has to encounter that early in the morning. I’m kind of proud that, like, that’s what she did because she stuck up for herself.”

Another neighbor said: “I’m glad that she had concealed carry and good aim, because there is so much going on in these streets.”

The woman, who suffered minor injuries during the incident, is not expected to face charges.

CA Gov. Newsom pushes new health care plan to help illegal aliens

Elections have con$equences.

From Fox News: Shortly after he took office on Monday, California’s Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom unearthed an unprecedented new health care agenda for his state, aimed at offering dramatically more benefits to illegal immigrants and protecting the embattled Affordable Care Act, which a federal judge recently struck down as unconstitutional.

The sweeping proposal appeared destined to push California — already one of the nation’s most liberal states — even further to the left, as progressive Democrats there won a veto-proof supermajority in the state legislature in November and control all statewide offices.

“People’s lives, freedom, security, the water we drink, the air we breathe — they all hang in the balance,” Newsom, 51, told supporters Monday in a tent outside the state Capitol building, as he discussed his plans to address issues from homelessness to criminal justice and the environment. “The country is watching us, the world is watching us. The future depends on us, and we will seize this moment.”

Newsom unveiled his new health-care plan hours after a protester interrupted his swearing-in ceremony to protest the murder of police Cpl. Ronil Singh shortly after Christmas Day. The suspect in Singh’s killing is an illegal immigrant with several prior arrests, and Republicans have charged that so-called “sanctuary state” policies, like the ones Newsom has championed, contributed to the murder by prohibiting state police from cooperating with federal immigration officials.

As one of his first orders of business, Newsom — who also on Monday requested that the Trump administration cooperate in the state’s efforts to convert to a single-payer system, even as he bashed the White House as corrupt and immoral — declared his intent to reinstate the ObamaCare individual mandate at the state level.

The mandate forces individuals to purchase health care coverage or pay a fee that the Supreme Court described in 2012 as a “tax,” rather than a “penalty” that would have run afoul of Congress’ authority under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution. Last month, though, a federal judge in Texas ruled the individual mandate no longer was a constitutional exercise of Congress’ taxing power because Republicans had passed legislation eliminating the tax entirely — a move, the judge said, that rendered the entire health-care law unworkable.

As that ruling works its way to what analysts say will be an inevitable Supreme Court showdown, Newsom said he would reimpose it in order to subsidize state health care.

Medi-Cal, the state’s health insurance program, now will let illegal immigrants remain on the rolls until they are 26, according to Newsom’s new agenda. The previous age cutoff was 19, as The Sacramento Bee reported.

Additionally, Newsom announced he would sign an executive order dramatically expanding the state’s Department of Health Care Services authority to negotiate drug prices, in the hopes of lowering prescription drug costs.
In his inaugural remarks, Newsom hinted that he intended to abandon the relative fiscal restraint that marked the most recent tenure of his predecessor, Jerry Brown, from 2011 to 2019. Brown sometimes rebuked progressive efforts to spend big on various social programs.

“For eight years, California has built a foundation of rock,” Newsom said. “Our job now is not to rest on that foundation. It is to build our house upon it.”

Newsom added that California will not have “one house for the rich and one for the poor, or one for the native-born and one for the rest.”

In a statement, the California Immigrant Policy Center backed Newsom’s agenda.

“Making sure healthcare is affordable and accessible for every Californian, including undocumented community members whom the federal government has unjustly shut out of care, is essential to reaching that vision for our future,” the organization said. “Today’s announcement is an historic step on the road toward health justice (First time I’ve heard of “health justice.” Liberals always love to distort language.) for all.”

More evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School had moved to Monroe, CT before the shooting massacre

We are told that on December 14, 2012, a lone gunman, Adam Lanza, went to the Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) in Newtown, Connecticut, where in the space of 11 minutes, shot and killed 20 first-graders and 6 adults.

We are also told that after the massacre on January 2, 2013, SHES reopened in an empty school about 7 miles away in Monroe, CT — Chalk Hill Middle School at 375 Fan Hill Rd. — until a new swanky SHES was rebuilt with a gift of $50 million from the state of Connecticut.

$50 million for an elementary school!

It turns out that asbestos-contaminated SHES had been closed years before the alleged shooting massacre (see “Sandy Hook hoax: 6 signs that school was closed before massacre”), and Chalk Hill Middle School had been abandoned and empty since June 2011 (CTPost).

Thanks to Wolfgang Halbig, a former a law enforcement officer (U.S. Customs inspector and Florida state trooper), educator (public school coach, teacher, assistant principal and principal), and nationally-recognized school safety consultant, we have documentary evidence that SHES had moved to Chalk Hill Middle School at least months before December 2012, including invoices for food deliveries to Chalk Hill but billed to SHES.

See “Wolfgang Halbig has stunning evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School was closed months before ‘massacre

Recently, Mr. Halbig uncovered yet another piece of evidence.

All U.S. public schools and libraries are required by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to use USAC Form 471 — a form designed to help schools and libraries to list the eligible services they have ordered and estimate the annual charges for them so that the Fund Administrator can set aside sufficient support to reimburse providers for services.

Note: USAC is Universal Service Administrative Co., which has a Schools and Libraries (E-rate) Program that provides discounts to keep public school students and library patrons connected to broadband and voice services.

Below is the FCC Form 471 for the funding year 2012 of Newtown Public Schools:

Note that the schools listed are:

  1. Middle Gate Elementary School
  2. Hawley Elementary School
  3. Head O’Meadow Elementary School
  4. Newtown Middle School
  5. Central Administrative Office
  6. Sandy Hook Elementary School
  7. Newtown High School
  8. Chalk Hill Middle School

Numbers 1-7 are in the Newtown Public School District (NPSD), as you can see in this screenshot I took of the drop-down menu under “Schools” on the NPSD website:

Chalk Hill Middle School is in Monroe, CT, and is not a school in the Newtown Public School District, so why is the school listed on Newtown Public Schools’ 2012 FCC Form 471 for the funding year 2012?

The FCC Form 471 must be filed during a specific application window each year. In general, the application filing window opens about six months before the start of the funding year and is open for about two and a half months. On USAC’s ebsite, it is stated:

Deadline: The FCC Form 470 must be certified in EPC at least 28 days before the close of the FCC Form 471 filing window for the funding year in which services are requested.

EPC = E-rate Productivity Center, the account and application management portal for the Schools and Libraries (E-rate) Program.

As an example, for funding year 2019, the FCC Form 471 application filing window is from January 16, 2019 to March 27, 2019 (source), and for funding year 2018, the application filing deadline was March 22, 2018. See this screenshot from the USAC website:

That means that for funding year 2012, the deadline for Newtown Public Schools to submit its FCC Form 471 was March 2012 — 8 months before the alleged shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and nearly 9 months before SHES was temporarily moved to Chalk Hill Middle School.

So why would Newtown Public Schools, in March 2012, include Chalk Hill Middle School — a school in Monroe, CT, which had been abandoned and empty since June 2011 — in its 2012 FCC Form 471? Unless, of course, Sandy Hook Elementary School had already relocated to Chalk Hill in Monroe by March 2012, if not earlier.

All of which leads to this question:

Since SHES had moved to Chalk Hill Middle School in Monroe, CT, months, if not years, before the shooting massacre, who, then, were the students and teachers whom Lanza shot to death at SHES in Newtown, CT, on December 14, 2012?

Female UFC fighter beats the crap out of mugger with “cardboard” gun

You go girl!

From NY Post: UFC star Polyana Viana left a man with horrific facial injuries after he tried to rob her with a cardboard gun.

The cowering thief even begged her to call the cops in fear of another beating after targeting the wrong person.

Viana was waiting for her Uber in Rio de Janeiro when the misguided criminal demanded she hand over her phone.
After the would-be robber claimed he had a gun, Viana said she punched and kicked him before locking him in a rear-naked choke. Viana, 26, kept the man in submission while she waited for police to arrive.

“When he saw I saw him, he sat next to me,” she told MMA Junkie. “He asked me the time, I said it, and I saw he wasn’t going to leave. So I already moved to put my cellphone in my waist. And then he said, ‘Give me the phone. Don’t try to react, because I’m armed.’

“Then he put his hand over [a gun], but I realized it was too soft.”

The “gun” turned out to be a cardboard cut-out.

“He was really close to me. So I thought, ‘If it’s a gun, he won’t have time to draw it.’ So I stood up, I threw two punches and a kick,” Viana said. “He fell, then I caught him in a rear-naked choke. Then I sat him down in the same place we were before and said, ‘Now we’ll wait for the police.’”

Viana, who is 1-1 in the UFC but won nine of her 10 MMA fights before that, insists she was calm throughout the attack. “I was fine because he didn’t even react after. Since he took the punches very quickly, I think he was scared,” she said.

“So he didn’t react anymore. He told me to let him go, like, ‘I just asked for the time.’ I said, ‘Asked for the time my ass,’ because he saw I was very angry. I said I wouldn’t let go and that I was going to call the police.
“He said, ‘Call the police, then’ because he was scared I was going to beat him up more.”

Viana had passers-by call the cops, who took the man to the hospital for treatment before hauling him to the police station. She was told the man had been arrested before and recently released for a previous crime.

It is not the first time the UFC fighter has had to fend for herself on the streets of Brazil. In fact, another robber tried to take her phone while she was in her hometown of Belem.

“He broke my umbrella and tried to take my phone. I said I wasn’t going to give it to him,” Viana said. “He tried to take it from my hand, I punched him in the face, and he was scared. This time I was scared. I don’t know if it was because there were two of them. So I was scared, but I think he was more scared than I was, so he jumped on the motorcycle and left.”

Mom pens powerful letter after son killed by illegal alien in Tennessee car crash

The Knoxville Fire Captain’s 22-year-old son, Pierce Corcoran, was killed by an illegal alien in a car accident before New Year’s Eve. The unlicensed illegal alien swerved into traffic causing a head-on car crash. The illegal alien is now charged with criminally negligent homicide and driving without a license or insurance.

Pierce’s mom penned the following, from justiceforpiercecorcoran.com:

“A Mother’s Message:

Pierce Corcoran was only 22 years old when he was killed by an illegal immigrant in a car crash on December 29th, 2018.

Pierce Corcoran, born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee. A responsible, hardworking and loving son, brother and grandson. Pierce’s life is to be remembered and celebrated for his relationship with his Heavenly Father, his love for others, and his determination to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Was he perfect? No, but he was taught to care about others and his impact on them. He was taught and practiced personal responsibility throughout his life. He was compassionate towards others, others whom might look differently than he or whom might speak differently than he.

As we mourn our precious son and try to honor his memory, we are also faced with the fact that there is much discussion surrounding his tragic death.

For us, there are two issues: safety and responsibility. As it pertains to safety, we are not the first, nor will we be the last to lose a loved one on a road known to many as dangerous. This is something we feel must be addressed. As it pertains to responsibility, we as parents taught all three of our children to be responsible for their actions. We discussed with them their need to maintain their vehicles and always have their license, registration and insurance up to date.

Everyone is well aware that the 44 year old man involved in our 22 year old’s death did not practice this same responsibility and has not done so for 14 years. Yes, it was an accident and yes, it could have been anyone.

It’s not about where this man came from–it’s the fact that he takes no personal responsibility for his actions. Not only in the financial sense, but no responsibility at all. He will most likely face very little jail time when all is said and done. He believes he should remain in our country illegally. Not only that, but we provide his counsel to fight for his rights.

We are all aware, as a family, that nothing will bring Pierce back, but don’t tell me my son, who lived in this country and followed its rules, doesn’t deserve better. For God’s sake, out of respect for the men and women who fought and fight to make this country such a desirable place to live, DO THE RIGHT THING and come here legally and become a responsible citizen.”

Army stands ready to build wall when Trump declares national emergency

Tonight, at 9 p.m. EST, President Trump will speak to America about security along our border with Mexico. Trump will follow his speech with a visit to the border on Thursday.

Vice President Pence said the national address is due to congressional Demonrats’ refusal to even negotiate on funds for border wall construction, which would end the partial (25%) federal government shut-down that began December 22. President Trump asks for $5.7 billion for construction of a steel border wall.

Note that the first order of business of the House Democrats was to pass bills to fund hundreds of millions of dollars for abortion by Planned Parenthood ($100 million), international NGOs ($500 million), and the UN Population Fund ($37.5 million).

A new Economist/YouGov survey, conducted Dec. 30-Jan. 1, found that:

  • A vast majority (86%) of Americans say illegal immigration is a problem, including 97% of Republicans, 82% of independents, and 83% of Democrats.
  • Only 7% of Americans think illegal immigration is “not a problem”, including 2% of Republicans, 7% of independents, and 12% of Democrats.
  • The remaining 6% of Americans are not sure if illegal immigration is a problem or not.

It is expected that in his national address, President Trump will declare a national emergency to build and pay for the wall. Indeed, border insecurity is a national emergency:

  • In fiscal 2017, as many as 3,755 known or suspected terrorists entered the U.S.
  • In fiscal 2018, which ended on Sept. 30, at the southern border:
    • Customs and Border Protection agents caught 17,000 adults who had criminal records.
    • Immigration and Customs Enforcement apprehended 6,000 members of gangs, including the violent MS-13.
    • A 73% increase in fentanyl, one of the deadliest drugs, totaling 2,400 pounds.
    • A 38% increase in methamphetamine.
    • A 38% increase in heroin.
    • 50 migrants a day required medical treatment.
    • 31% of female migrants said they were sexually assaulted on the journey to the U.S. (The Daily Signal)

And when/if President Trump declares border security is a national emergency, the U.S. Army will be the primary contractor to build the wall.

InfoWars reports that two days ago, on Sunday, January 6, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) sent a letter to Democratic House committee chairs, informing them that the Customs and Border Protection agency is coordinating with the army to fulfill President Trump’s goal of securing the border with a steel wall.

The letter also says that President Trump’s request for $5.7 billion would fund construction of approximately 234 miles of a steel border wall, and several other areas pertaining to border security, including more border patrol personnel, humanitarian supplies, and technology resources. (Read the letter on ScribD, here.)

Yesterday, a White House official said, “If the president declares a national emergency, the Army Corps of Engineers will kick into high gear. They’re already handing out contracts, and that would speed up a lot.”

In fact, the Army Corps of Engineers had begun soliciting bids in mid-2017 for companies to produce “a mix of border fence, border wall, border patrol roads, border access roads, border lights, border gates (for access to border monuments, for maintenance, and for Border Patrol operational use), border drainage improvements, levee walls, and other miscellaneous improvements, repairs, and alterations.” (Daily Mail)

Strict gun-controlled California: Fourth man killed in five-hour span in Oakland

Something proggies will never understand: You can never make enough laws to guarantee good behavior from people who are willing to break the law.

As reported by SF Chronicle: A man was killed early Saturday in the Highland neighborhood of East Oakland, less than five hours after three men were fatally shot across the city.

The man, who was not immediately identified, was found on 90th Avenue near International Boulevard around 1:20 a.m., police said. Officers were notified of the shooting through ShotSpotter, the gunshot detection device.

Paramedics transported the victim to a nearby hospital, where he died.

The shooting came after a triple homicide in West Oakland just before 9 p.m. Friday, which police called a “deliberate” attack. The victims were a 29-year-old and 31-year-old from Oakland and a 21-year-old from Vallejo. Officials did not release their names.

The West Oakland homicides occurred at a Torrance bowling alley. The shooting was the result after a “brawl” broke out and the shooters remain at large.

Police are being “mum” on the details, such as whether or not the incident was gang related. They aren’t even releasing descriptions of the suspects, which I’m sure they have (via verbal statements and video).

Odd considering that California has no tolerance for gun violence they wouldn’t want to describe and catch the perps of this triple homicide. I wonder why…
