Actress Busy Philipps reveals her greatest fear as a mother is that her daughters will be sexually assaulted

Busy Philipps is a Hollyweird actress most of you have probably never heard of or seen on television.  Check out her Wiki page to learn more about her. I’ve also collected some other information about her:

Busy took part in the “Demand a Plan to End Gun Violence” video (she appears at the 29 second mark).

Busy is a rabid supporter of Planned Parenthood. Here’s here Twitter profile picture (of which I’m sure the irony of her baby in the photo is completely lost on her):

She’s a supporter of Hillary Clinton. And she despises republicans. Check out here Twitter feed here.

Given her political leanings, it makes sense that she wants to play the victim role.

From Daily Mail: It’s a concern all parents share for their daughters as sexual assault on college campuses and elsewhere continue to grow.

And Busy Philipps was quick to raise the subject in a cover interview for Mini Magazine‘s Summer 2016 issue, out now online. The 37-year-old, who is mother to Birdie Leigh, seven, and Cricket Pearl, three, revealed: ‘My greatest fear and worry is that one of my daughters will be sexually assaulted in her life. I know the statistics and I will try to help by starting conversations early about sex and protecting themselves, but it scares me to no end.’

The Cougar Town alum, who shares the girls with her screenwriter-producer husband Marc Silverstein, continued: ‘I really hope that meaningful steps will be taken on campuses and I hope consent becomes a part of sex ed in schools.’

And she added: ‘Part of my brain is always taken up by how to protect them, keep them alive, be a good mom.’

Read the rest of the story here.

Busy is certainly right to be concerned for the safety of her children (thank goodness they didn’t end up butchered by Planned Parenthood). And she can raise her children with whatever fears and beliefs she has in mind for them to learn.

In my opinion, this is the major difference between proggies and conservatives: Proggies look to others to protect them and for government controls in every facet of our lives that supposedly protect us. And those Hollyweird actors have bodyguards at their awards shows. They start out from a place of fear. They are victims.

Conservatives, on the other hand, look to themselves to protect their own lives and that of their families. They rely on their own parenting skills to teach their children how to be safe. And they start from a place of self-preservation rather than fear.

This is Chiraq: 3 dead, 26 wounded in weekend shootings across Chicago

Same thing EVERY WEEKEND. And yet not ONE PEEP from the BLM crowd.

No where to be seen in Chicago...

No where to be seen in Chicago…

From MyFoxChicago: Three men were killed and at least 26 others have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening, according to Chicago Police.

The weekend’s latest homicide happened Saturday afternoon in the Roseland neighborhood on the Far South Side. About 1:35 p.m., a 25-year-old man was sitting in a car parked in the 10400 block of South Wentworth when someone walked up and shot him in the head, police said. He was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he later died, police said.

Another shooting in the same neighborhood left a man dead less than a mile away Friday evening. About 6:15 p.m., a 20-year-old man was found with gunshot wounds to the head and chest in the back yard of a home in the 10700 block of South Edbrooke, police said. He was dead at the scene. Authorities have not released either of the Roseland victims’ names.

The weekend’s first fatal attack happened about 4:30 p.m. Friday in Englewood.

Ernest Hudson, 18, was shot in the head about 4:30 p.m. in the 6400 block of South Lowe, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He was taken to St. Bernard Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 4:55 p.m.

The most recent nonfatal attack happened about 5:30 a.m. Sunday in the Humboldt Park neighborhood on the West Side. A 23-year-old man and 28-year-old woman were both wounded in a shooting about 5:30 a.m. in the 2400 block of West Chicago, police said. The man was shot in the shoulder and back and the woman suffered a gunshot wound the left arm. They later showed up at MacNeal Hospital in Berwyn, where they were both listed in serious condition. A police source said the man is a documented gang member.

At least 24 more people have been wounded in shootings across Chicago since 7 p.m. Friday.

What libtards won’t admit: The truth about gun-free zones

A reader from Weasel Zippers shared this video with me. It demonstrates the reality of gun-free zones and how an armed woman can have the chance to save herself. Something gun-grabbers don’t want you to believe in.

The video was produced by Reel Clef Studios – a film and music studio located in Chicago – a place where one knows how well those strict gun control laws works.

Sandy Hook will be used for Gun Control at 2016 Democratic National Convention

We already know the MSM are willing accomplices of the Left. The latest example is a Democratic National Committee (DNC) email on an agreement with a Politico reporter to preview his story on Hillary Clinton’s campaign before he sent it to his editors. (See “Hacked emails show Democratic National Committee to be corrupt arm of Hillary“)

Now all signs are pointing to gun control being a center piece in Hillary Clinton’s upcoming acceptance speech as her party’s presidential nominee. Gun Control is her rebuttal to Donald Trump’s call to law and order.

The signs point to the reinvocation of the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting by the media and by the Democratic National Convention that begins today. The supposed shooting deaths of 20 little children will be used to tug on Americans’ heartstrings for gun control.

Sandy Hook gun control

Here are the signs:

1. Three days ago in the space of just one hour, CNN obligingly flooded YouTube with one hundred (!) Sandy Hook videos. (H/t Barry Soetoro Esq.)

See also “CNN deception: Live aerial footage of police running into Sandy Hook was of another school“.

2. The Democratic Convention will feature Sandy Hook speakers, including Erica Lafferty Smegielski, the daughter of slain Sandy Hook Elementary School principal Dawn Hochsprung who, we are told, was the first to be killed by Adam Lanza. Curiously, the dead Hochsprung managed to give an interview about the massacre to Newtown’s local newspaper, Newtown Bee. More curious still is the fact that the cache date of the Bee interview was December 13, a day before the massacre. See:

Hitler children gun control

Please don’t fall for Hillary’s ruse.

The Alternative Media have conducted diligent and exhaustive research on Sandy Hook, showing it was an elaborate false-flag to promote gun control. For exercising their First Amendment right of free speech, the researchers have endured online harassment, abuse, and death threats. Some paid a heavy price: film-maker William Shanley was arrested and imprisoned; tenured professor, Dr. James Tracy, was fired by Florida Atlantic University. (See “Sandy Hook: The hounding of Prof. James Tracy”)

Trump’s acceptance speech pivots on America & Americans First

Did you watch Donald Trump’s speech as the Republican Party’s 2016 presidential nominee last night?

What do you think of it?

If you haven’t watched it, here it is:

It was long, because Trump did not rush his words, but clearly and emphatically articulated (and sometimes shouted) important points he wanted to impress on Americans, and because he paused often, to acknowledge the reaction from the Convention delegates. All of which was not the performance of someone just reading from a teleprompter. Instead, this was a speaker who wanted to convey and impress on his listeners the gravity of America’s problems and how he would deal with those problems.

The heart of Trump’s message is a simple one:

America and Americans First

That principle should be self-evident, requiring no defense or justification — for who else but Americans would and should put America and Americans first? Don’t you put your own and your family’s wellbeing first? How is America to help others if America falls apart? And yet, we haven’t heard this overriding principle from other politicians, not even from Trump’s GOP primary rivals. It is also a message that the Left and their MSM accomplices, as well as the GOP elites, distort and malign as something evil — that standing up for and putting America first is “nativist,” “jingoist,” “fascist”…, as if the obligation of America and Americans is to be a doormat for the rest of the world.

From his central principle of “America and Americans First” — of making America rich and strong again — flows these derivative values and principles:

  1. Law and Order: A country that is in chaos cannot thrive economically. A fundamental responsibility of government is to protect and ensure the safety of the governed against criminals, whether criminals here illegally or those gunning down police. To ensure Americans’ safety, Trump is committed to our right to arm ourselves which is guaranteed by the Second Amendment. It is also on the theme of Law and Order that Trump indicts Hillary Clinton for her lawlessness in having a private email-server while she was secretary of state, and for the Obama FBI’s refusal to indict her for violating U.S. laws and endangering national security with unsecured emails containing classified state secrets and names of CIA agents.
  2. Secure Our Borders, to protect Americans against the flood of illegals, many of whom are criminals, and of Muslim “refugees” who the FBI has admitted cannot be vetted to exclude terrorists. On this, Trump reminds blacks that they are the economic victims of Obama’s and Hillary’s open-border policy, and that LGBTs were the victims of a Muslim gunman in Orlando. In so doing, without explicitly saying it, Trump reminds whites and straights that blacks and LGBTs are Americans, and putting “America First” should also mean putting all “Americans First”.
  3. A strong military, and better treatment for our veterans.
  4. In foreign policy and affairs, the United States will jealously guard our interests, be they financial, trade, or security. Trade treaties and arrangements will be rexamined and renegotiated, in order to restore America’s manufacturing industries and jobs. Our allies will have to pay their “fair share” for military defense (Japan, South Korea, but no mention of Israel) and step up to the plate against terrorism (NATO).
  5. Revive U.S. economy: Via restoring manufacturing jobs, getting allies to pay their fair share of defense costs, and lowering taxes.
  6. Populism: Trump ended his speech by telling America that unlike Hillary, who asks if Democrats are “with her,” his message is that he is “with you, the American people”.

Trump also graciously thanked Christians and Evangelicals for their support, saying he’s not sure he deserves it, which is uncharacteristically humble for him.

So how was Trump’s speech received by GOP elites?

If the editor of a supposedly conservative publication is an indication, it’s bad news for anyone hoping for Republican party unity to defeat Hillary, who will complete the destruction of America. Below is the shockingly vicious “The Demagogue Rises,” by Matthew Continetti, editor-in-chief of The Washington Free Beacon:

Donald Trump delivered the longest, loudest convention speech in recent memory when he accepted the Republican nomination for president Thursday evening. He made no attempt to “pivot to the general election,” moderate his agenda, smooth over rough rhetoric. Gone was Mitt Romney’s Etch-a-Sketch, tossed into a dustbin with George W. Bush’s Freedom Agenda, George H.W. Bush’s Thousand Points of Light, Ronald Reagan’s Morning in America. Trump was his usual self: brash, boisterous, overbearing, defiant, inimitable, roiling with anger over the state of the country and the corruption, ineffectiveness, and arrogance of the nation’s elite. Trump won’t change, won’t learn, won’t listen, won’t apologize, won’t cavil, won’t conform to the traditions of presidential politics or adhere to the norms of political discourse. He doesn’t care about facts, he wants to overturn the postwar international order, he champions the will to power, he mercilessly attacks opponents. He’s a demagogue in dark suits, electric ties. I can only imagine what he’d be capable of if he were competent.

Because he’s not competent. He is actually truly, magnificently inept. The convention was a mess, haphazard, disorganized, weird. The botched roll call vote, Melania’s plagiarism, Ted Cruz’s hand grenade, the leaked speech draft—all of these gaffes and scandals occurred against the backdrop of dismal attendance, chants to put Hillary in prison, bizarre speakers, rambling addresses, early departures, and testimonies to Trump’s greatness. His campaign has practically no money, no advertising, no infrastructure, no grassroots operation. The other day, when he expressed uncertainty about whether the United States would lead NATO in defense of the Baltic States if they were attacked by Russia, Trump made history by provoking an international incident without even being president. Many GOP officials wouldn’t come near the convention, including Ohio’s popular governor. There are two Republican parties for the moment: the party led by Trump and the Republican Party in exile, the party of Kasich and Larry Hogan and Nikki Haley and Charlie Baker and Brian Sandoval and Mark Kirk and Ted Cruz. Election Day won’t just determine who will succeed President Obama. It will also determine the fate of Donald J. Trump’s hostile takeover of the GOP.

Continetti all but calls Trump a Hitler, and Americans who support Trump mindless Nazis.

Note that Continetti’s criticisms of Trump are all about style, not substantive issues — that Trump was “brash,” “boisterous,” and “mercilessly attacks opponents,” and that he did not pay obeisance to GOP old guard elites, who to the end strove to undermine Trump and boycotted the Republican National Convention. As for the “opponents” whom Trump “mercilessly attacked,” since the only “opponents” Trump attacked were Hillary Clinton and big business fat-cats (with apologies to cats) who hollowed out the U.S. economy with their outsourcing of jobs, that should tell us whose side Continetti is on.

If Hillary wins, it will be because of Republicans like Matthew Continetti who reserve their most vicious venom not for Democrats, but for a fellow Republican and patriot who simply wants to put America and Americans first. Should Hillary become president, the victory of Continetti, Bill Kristol, the Bushes, et al., against Trump will be pyrrhic because all that will be left of their Republican Party is an empty shell, devoid of rank-and-file members.

So what do you think of Trump’s speech? Take our simple short poll!

Massachusetts AG going after “weapons of war”

Girlfriend obviously hasn’t read the Second Amendment. And I’ll bet money she’s never fired a civilian AR-15.

Article by Maura Healy (demorat), AG of Massachusetts since January 2015.

Gun grabber Maura Healey

Gun grabber Maura Healey

From the Boston Globe: Falcon Heights. Dallas. Baton Rouge again. Five horrific headlines in five weeks. Each story unique in its circumstances, but bound by a common thread: human lives taken by a gun.

There are myriad issues underlying each of these tragedies: fear, racism, mistrust, hate. These are critical issues that we, as a country, have an obligation to honestly and forthrightly address. And they’re issues my office is working hard to tackle alongside our partners in the community, in law enforcement, and in government.

But there’s one issue that can be addressed right now — the proliferation of guns, particularly assault weapons.

Here in Massachusetts, 10,000 assault weapons were sold just in the last year — each one nearly identical to the rifle used to gun down 49 innocent people in Orlando. In the week after the Pulse nightclub massacre, sales of weapons strikingly similar to the Sig Sauer MCX used at Pulse jumped as high as 450 percent over the previous week — just in Massachusetts.

It’s no surprise the Orlando killer chose an AR-15 style assault rifle. It’s a weapon of war, originally created for combat, and designed to kill many people in a short amount of time with incredible accuracy. It’s in the same category as weapons chosen by killers in Newtown, Aurora, and San Bernardino. These are not weapons of self-defense. They are weapons used to commit mass murder. And they have no business being in civilian hands.

Me with a weapon of war

Me shooting a “weapon of war”

How in Massachusetts, then, home to some of the strongest gun laws in the country, do we allow people to buy these guns? The gun industry has found a way to exploit our laws, a loophole of potentially horrific proportions. And it’s time we act.

The Massachusetts assault weapons ban mirrors the federal ban Congress allowed to expire in 2004. It prohibits the sale of specific weapons like the Colt AR-15 and AK-47 and explicitly bans “copies or duplicates” of those weapons. But gun manufacturers have taken it upon themselves to define what a “copy” or “duplicate” weapon is. They market “state compliant” copycat versions of their assault weapons to Massachusetts buyers. They sell guns without a flash suppressor or folding or telescoping stock, for example, small tweaks that do nothing to limit the lethalness of the weapon.

That will end now. On Wednesday, we are sending a directive to all gun manufacturers and dealers that makes clear that the sale of these copycat assault weapons is illegal in Massachusetts. With this directive, we will ensure we get the full protection intended when lawmakers enacted our assault weapons ban, not the watered-down version of those protections offered by gun manufacturers.

The directive specifically outlines two tests to determine what constitutes a “copy” or “duplicate” of a prohibited weapon. If a gun’s operating system is essentially the same as that of a banned weapon, or if the gun has components that are interchangeable with those of a banned weapon, it’s a “copy” or “duplicate,” and it is illegal. Assault weapons prohibited under our laws cannot be altered in any way to make their sale or possession legal in Massachusetts.

We recognize that most residents who purchased these guns in the past believed they were doing so legally, so this directive will not apply to possession of guns purchased before Wednesday. In the dozen years since the federal assault weapons ban lapsed, only seven states have instituted their own assault weapons ban. Many of those bans have been challenged (unsuccessfully) by the gun industry, and we anticipate our directive may be too. But our job is to enforce state laws and to keep people safe. This directive does both.

In the face of utter inaction by Congress, states have a duty to enact and enforce laws that protect people from gun violence. If Washington won’t use its power to get these guns off our streets, we will. Not only do we have the legal authority to do so, we have a moral obligation to do so.

Liberal Hypocrisy: Terrorist Bill Ayers calls for gun control

If you need another reason to be skeptical about the Left’s and the Obama administration’s insistence on gun control, here it is:

Bill Ayers, 71, who ghostwrote Obama’s memoir and founded the domestic terrorist group, Weather Underground, advocates gun control.

Obama buddy Bill Ayers

Obama buddy Bill Ayers

In 1969, Ayers co-founded the Weather Underground, a self-described U.S. communist revolutionary group that conducted a campaign of bombing public buildings during the 1960s and 1970s, ostensibly to protest the Vietnam War. In 1970, two members of the Weather Underground (Ayers’ close friend Terry Robbins and Ayers’ girlfriend Diana Oughton) were killed when a nail bomb they were assembling in a Greenwich Village townhouse exploded.

Ayers participated in the bombings of New York City Police Department headquarters in 1970, the United States Capitol building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972.

Ayers has remained unrepentant. In a 2004 interview, Ayers was asked, “How do you feel about what you did? Would you do it again under similar circumstances?” He replied:

“I’ve thought about this a lot. Being almost 60, it’s impossible to not have lots and lots of regrets about lots and lots of things, but the question of did we do something that was horrendous, awful? … I don’t think so. I think what we did was to respond to a situation that was unconscionable.”

On June 14, 2016, Ayers sent out a tweet calling for a bill to ban AR-15 rifles:

Bill Ayers gun control tweet

The irony of an unrepentant terrorist calling for gun control was not lost on former Republican presidential aspirant Herman Cain:

Bill Ayers for gun controlIt’s also fitting that Ayers would propose naming the gun-control bill “The Orlando Sandy Hook Commemoration Act,” given that:

  1. Both the Sandy Hook and Orlando mass shooting massacres are false-flag fakes.
  2. No AR-15 rifle was used in either Sandy Hook or Orlando.
