Oregon counties pass Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance

Oregon Live displays their liberal bias right in the first sentence.

As in many blue states, once you get out of the progressive-infested metropolitan cities you’ll find many Second Amendment supporters.

From Oregon Live: The so-calledSecond Amendment Preservation Ordinance” declares that those living in counties that approve it have the right to own semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines, regardless of state or federal law. The measure appeared on the ballot in Baker, Columbia, Douglas, Jackson, Klamath, Lake, Lincoln, Linn, Umatilla and Union counties.

The ordinance also empowers sheriffs in those counties to determine if state and federal gun laws are constitutional and whether to prohibit local resources from being used to enforce them.

Partial returns show that the measure passed in all but Jackson and Lincoln counties.

The effort was organized by an Oregon gun rights group called the Committee for the Preservation of the Second Amendment. But it drew broad support among members of two militia groups, the Three Percenters and Oath Keepers, who campaigned and organized for the ordinance across the state.

Shelter dog gets forever home by making his bed every day

Animal shelters are full of homeless dogs and cats. But a Pit-bull at the SICSA Adoption Center in Kettering, Ohio, stood out from the crowd.

Every day, while waiting to be adopted, Rush would make his own bed.

This captured the attention and the hearts of one couple who adopted Rush.

GOP maintains control of Senate; great news for the “conservative judicial train”

Last night the GOP likely extended (at the time I scheduled this blog post) its majority in the Senate.

Key republican wins included:

  • Mike Braun in Indiana
  • Kevin Cramer defeated Heidi Heitkamp (who voted against Kavanaugh) in North Dakota
  • Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee
  • Josh Hawley defeated Claire McCaskill in Missouri
  • Rick Scott in Florida

This win is very important to keep control of the appointment of judicial nominees since the Senate confirms federal judges and – most importantly – SCOTUS nominees.

The SCOTUS is leaning more conservative with the appointments of Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.

Considering the health condition and age of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, there is a very good chance that President Trump could have the chance to nominate another conservative to the SCOTUS.

Lindsey Graham tweeted the following last night:

  • “One of the reasons we are winning big in the Senate tonight is because of the way Democrats treated Brett Kavanaugh.”
  • The conservative judicial train will keep running. President Trump has a lot to be proud of … without him I don’t think we would have had the night that we had.” response on Fox News”

Good news last night, very good news indeed.

ICE deports Kazakhstani man convicted of concealing evidence for Boston Marathon bombers

Bye, bye you terrorist supporter!

Our country and the safety of our citizens matter. Good riddance!

From ICE press release dated 11/01/18:

DALLAS — Officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) removed a Kazakhstani man on Oct. 23 who was previously convicted for concealing criminal evidence for one of the Boston Marathon bombers.

Dias Muratovich Kadyrbayev, 24, a citizen of Kazakhstan, was convicted June 2, 2015, of conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice for removing and disposing of incriminatory items from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s dorm room. Tsarnaev was later convicted and sentenced to death for his role in the Boston Marathon bombing that killed three innocent bystanders, and subsequently two police officers.

Kadyrbayev’s crimes are considered aggravated felonies under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Kadyrbayev was sentenced to six years in federal prison at the Federal Correctional Institute in Big Spring, Texas (FCI Big Spring). Under federal law, aliens convicted of an aggravated felony are subject to removal and barred from returning to the United States.

Kadyrbayev departed the U.S. by commercial air on Oct. 23 and was released from ICE custody on Oct. 24 at the Almaty International Airport, in Almaty, Kazakhstan, without incident.

On Oct. 13, 2016, ERO Dallas lodged an immigration detainer with the Bureau of Prisons on Kadyrbayev and on Feb. 15, 2018, served him with a final administrative order of removal.

On Aug. 29, 2018, FCI Big Spring transferred custody of Kadyrbayev to ERO Dallas at the Prairieland Detention Center in Alvarado, Texas. Kadyrbayev remained in ICE custody until he was removed under ICE escort on Oct. 23.

Little dog saves 4 tiny kittens from fire

The Jack Russell is a small dog — a type of terrier that ranges in size from 1o to 15 inches long.

Leo is a Jack Russell mix who lives with his human (a woman with four children) and animal (another dog, Barney, and four newborn kittens) family in Melbourne, Australia.

Leo may be small but he has the heart of a lion.

One night, Leo’s house caught fire. Soon, flames filled the whole house.

Leo’s human family and Barney managed to get out, but Leo refused to flee.

When the firefighters got into the building, they found little Leo lying unconscious on the ground.

When they picked him up, they noticed that four tiny and alive kittens were underneath him. Leo was keeping the kittens safe by using his body to shield them from the fire.

Fortunately, the firefighters were able to revive Leo with oxygen.

H/t Happiest

God’s creatures like little Leo are extraordinary in their courage and sacrificial love. They put us humans to shame.

Feel good story of the day: Alabama McDonald’s gunman killed by armed citizen

From Fox News: A brave dad armed with a pistol stopped what could have been a mass shooting Saturday inside an Alabama McDonald’s when he took down a masked gunman who had stormed in and opened fire.

The unidentified father was leaving the establishment with his sons when a masked man walked into the Birmingham fast-food restaurant and started shooting, WBRC-TV reported. The father returned fire and, during the ensuing shootout, the gunman, the father and one of the man’s teenage sons were struck, according to the station.

The gunman, who was not identified, later died of his injuries. The other two injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Markus Washington, one of the McDonald’s employees, told WBRC-TV he was making two quarter-pounders when bullets started to fly. Washington said he ran into the freezer, where he heard about 15 shots fired.

“I’m feeling grateful,” he told the station. “Wrapping my head around it all, I was just wishing someone would come wake me up from this nightmare.”

Washington, oblivious to the shootout taking place outside the freezer door, feared the worst. “All we hear is like different gunfire, so in my mind, I’m imagining everybody is dead. He’s looking for us,” he said. Washington added he was thankful the armed customer was there.

“He’s my hero. Because I can only imagine how it would’ve went if he wasn’t armed. We might not be here having this interview,” Washington said.

The father is not expected to face charges, police said.

Authorities are now working to determine if the gunman intended to rob the restaurant, was targeting an employee or planned something more nefarious.

“Things like this are difficult for both families. The gentleman who unfortunately lost his life, the teenage boy who is in the hospital recovering from his injuries and the father who is also recovering from his injuries,” Birmingham police spokesman Sgt. Bryan Shelton said, according to WVTM-13. “It’s not easy being a father and watching your child get injured, get hurt like that. It’s a really heartwrenching experience.”

High school football player’s National Anthem goes viral: “I’m proud of my country”

I predict a promising career for this young man.

From Fox News: A Maryland high school football player’s unique version of the national anthem is going viral.

Jackson Dean wowed the crowd last weekend by singing his country rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” while playing the guitar.

The defensive end played a stripped-down version of the anthem before his teammates burst through a banner at the end of the tune.

Dean plays for Arundel High School and said Saturday on Fox & Friends that the amount of attention he’s getting is “very awesome.”

Videos of the senior’s performance are racking up hundreds of thousands of views on Facebook and YouTube.

“I’m an American, and I’m proud of my country,” he said on Saturday.

Dean added that once he graduates from high school, he’ll be hitting the road and performing. “We’ve got some things in the pocket that have been working that I can’t really talk about,” he said.

Too bad, so sad: Libtard Lena Dunham’s feminist “Lenny Letter” shuts down

As far as I’m concerned, the less we have to hear from this womyn the better.

From Hollywood Reporter: Another joint venture from Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner has come to an end, as the Girls showrunners are going in separate directions after ending their producing partnership three months ago.

The pair’s Lenny Letter newsletter aimed at smart young women, which started as a weekly offering but increased its frequency to twice a week, is shutting down. An email to subscribers Friday morning confirmed reports Thursday from the New York Post and Digiday, which obtained an email saying staffers were informed of the closure last week.

In the Friday message, Dunham and Konner wrote “this is Lenny’s final chapter,” and said, “While there’s no one reason for our closure, this change allows for growth and a shift in perspectives — ours and yours.” They also praised subscribers for creating “a fiercely passionate community of dedicated readers, writers, and artists” and encouraged readers to “continue to push forward the voices that need a platform, the untold stories that deserve to be heard, the diversity that the publishing industry claims to value but has never mastered.”

And they urged people to vote, and help others do the same, in the upcoming midterm elections on Nov. 6 as a way to make real change.

“Real change-making takes work, and part of that work will come this November,” Dunham and Konner wrote. “There is nothing more critical to counteracting the daily devastation of the current regime than the midterm elections. Knock on strangers’ doors, drive people who can’t drive themselves to the polls, host a postcard-writing party to encourage unlikely voters, canvas at Taylor Swift concerts. Do whatever it takes.”

Later on Friday, Konner posted about the end of Lenny Letter on her Instagram account, writing, “Goodbye, Lenny Letter. Our final issue is a special one. Thank you to everyone who read it, wrote it, photographed and illustrated it.”

Dunham and Konner launched Lenny in 2015 as a weekly email newsletter aimed at smart young women.

Lenny Letter, was designed to feature a mix of personal essays and articles about politics, fashion and entertainment, all from a contemporary feminist perspective.

The initiative quickly featured high-profile essays, including one by Jennifer Lawrence in which she talked about her surprise and dismay when she learned she was being paid less than her male co-stars on American Hustle. Subscribers receive the newsletter twice a week.

Dunham and Konner intended to embark on a six-city Lenny IRL tour in 2017 before Dunham was forced to cancel due to ongoing health issues related to her endometriosis.
