Washington senator insists insurance bill is not about gun control

maralyn-chase

Maralyn Chase: Fully believes in your Second Amendment rights, HOWEVER…

Attention Ms. Chase:

  1. You have a Constitutional right to own a firearm. A home or car is not a Constitutional right.
  2. You do NOT have to purchase insurance (unless you are financing in which case it is usually required). Sure, you take on higher risks and even fines yet there are plenty of people who opt out of purchasing insurance.

From MyNorthwest.com: The Washington State Legislature is considering a series of gun control measures that includes Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s assault weapon ban and a gun lock safety bill.

One senator has introduced a measure that takes on the issue a different way, requiring liability insurance before someone can buy a gun.

Sen. Maralyn Chase (D-Edmonds) says people have to buy insurance for their homes, their cars, and other items, so having it for guns makes sense to her (of course it does – she’s a democrat).

Chase insists her bill is not about gun control, but rather public and private protections.

“I fully believe in Second Amendment rights, however, with those rights come great responsibilities,” Chase said. “We see the destructive power of guns almost nightly on the news and yet we do not require gun owners to have any type of liability insurance. Requiring liability insurance may cause an irresponsible gun owner to exercise extra care in preventing firearm-related accidents, especially in tragic accidents involving children.”

Dave Workman, senior editor of thegunmag.com, doesn’t believe gun liability insurance will do anything to cut down on crime or gun related accidents. “This is one more hoop that somebody is trying to throw out there to require people to jump through before they can exercise a civil right,” he said. “If they did this, or tried to do this, the howling would be heard all the way from our Washington to Washington D.C.”

Workman says politicians can only go so far with something like this before getting a negative reaction from the public. He doesn’t believe the bill will get much traction in Olympia.

Senator Chase agrees. She admits it will be difficult to get it out of the Senate given the current political makeup. But, she says, it’s important to get the discussion started. For now, her bill sits in the Senate’s Law and Justice Committee, with no hearing scheduled.

There is one group that’s in favor of gun liability insurance — insurance companies. Insurance companies sell policies for self-defense use of guns and concealed carry. It’s even NRA-endorsed. As described in a video promoting “Second Call Defense,” the “legal aftermath of a self-defense shooting can sometimes seem worse than what causes you to use lethal force in the first place.” (See the video at the MyNorthwest.com article.)

Killing Frenzy: International drive to replace $600M gap from Trump’s funding ban for overseas abortion

abortion is murder2

On January 23, 2017, his first full day of work as President of the United States of America, Donald John Trump fulfilled a campaign promise he had made by signing an executive order reinstating the lapsed “Mexico City Policy” that bans U.S. government funding of overseas groups that perform or lobby to legalize abortion, such as the International Planned Parenthood Federation.

See “Trump fulfills 3 promises in first day of work as POTUS, including defund International Planned Parenthood

President Trump’s banning of U.S. funding of overseas abortion means a savings of as much as $600 million over the course of 4 years.

Hellbent on the murder of innocent unborn human beings, the Netherlands started a global drive to raise millions of dollars to replace the now missing U.S. abortion funds.  

Gwladys Fouche reports for Reuters, Feb. 21, 2017, that in January, the Netherlands started a global fund to help women across the world access abortion services, saying Trump’s “global gag rule” meant a funding gap of $600 million over the next four years.

Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Luxembourg, Finland, Canada, Cape Verde and Norway have all joined the abortion fund drive.

The Netherlands has pledged $10 million. So has Norway.

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg declared in a statement:

“The government is increasing its support for family planning and safe abortion by 85 million Norwegian crowns ($10 million) compared with 2016. At a time when this agenda has come under pressure, a joint effort is particularly important.”

Note that Norway’s former prime minister is none other than Jens Stoltenberg, the present secretary general of NATO who is a Bilderberg élite and heavily invested in the vaccine industry. He was once photographed at some conference wearing a 666 T-shirt. (See “Another Candidate for the Beast” and “NATO globalists sing ‘We are the World’“)

Michelle Obama’s swinging nuts on the Ellen DeGeneres Show

White pants are unforgiving.

Not only do they show every stain, white pants also reveal bulges.

Mooch made the mistake of wearing white pants when she went dancing on the Ellen DeGeneres show, which was aired on CBS on March 16, 2015.

I had posted on Mooch’s penis-shaped bulges in “Is this Michelle Obama’s weenie?,” including these screenshots.

Michelle's weenie

Now, thanks to a post on a reader’s blog, saboteur365, we have visual evidence of not just Mooch’s penis but “her” swinging nuts as well.

Below is a video of the Ellen DeGeneres Show, which I’d set to begin at the 2:27 mark when Mooch stands up and we can see the crotch of “her” white pants. Please note that this is an official video from The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which means the GIFs that I made from the video have not been “photoshopped” or tampered.

Here are two screenshots I took before the dancing begins, of a small bulge on the right side (our left) of Mooch’s crotch.

Beginning at the 5:09 mark, you can see Mooch’s nuts swinging. Here’s a GIF I made of those seconds:

California Police Officer Keith Boyer Murdered by Recently-Released Gang Member

From LA Times: One officer was killed and a second injured in a shootout with a gang member who was wounded in a Monday morning altercation in Whittier, authorities said.

Three Whittier Police Department officers were responding to the scene of a traffic collision about 8 a.m. when a 26-year-old, recently paroled man driving a stolen car opened fire with a semiautomatic pistol, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lt. John Corina.

Detectives said the alleged gunman, who is expected to survive, is also a suspect in homicide that occurred in East Los Angeles. They believe he stole a vehicle Sunday morning after killing a man, then drove into Whittier, where he encountered the police.

The slain officer was identified as Keith Boyer, a 27-year veteran of the department.

Whittier Police Chief Jeff Piper broke down in tears recounting Boyer, whom he described as a close friend and beloved member of the department. He said Boyer was a mentor to others in the department and had recently talked about retiring.

Boyer played in a community band that performed for charity. At the police station, he was known for his sunny, friendly disposition and willingness to lend help and offer advice, the chief said. “He was the best of the best,” Piper said tearfully during a Monday afternoon news conference. “This is an unbelievably senseless tragedy.”

Piper said the shooting suspect, whose name has not been made public, was released from custody early. He blamed the early release on a series of new laws designed to reduce incarcerations in California.

Neither Piper nor the Sheriff’s Department offered specific information about his record or how he was released early. But the chief said Boyer’s killing showed how these laws have made the streets less safe. “We need to wake up. Enough is enough,” he said.

Two officers were hit by gunfire and taken to UC Irvine Medical Center, where Boyer was pronounced dead, Corina said. The  wounded officer is in stable condition while the suspect was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center.

The shooter, according to police, had been involved in a traffic accident with another vehicle near Colima Road and Mar Vista Street, and approached the driver he had rear-ended to help push his silver car to the side of a road around the corner.

Police officers arrived in three cars and approached the man, who was seated in the silver car, Corina said. He got out and as officers moved to pat him down, he pulled a gun from his waistband and began shooting at close range. “He started firing at the officers and they returned fire,” Corina said. “We are still looking into that, why he just opened fire.”

Officers believed they were responding to a routine traffic call and did not know the vehicle was stolen when they approached. “It seems like a simple traffic accident and next thing they know they’re in a gunfight,” Corina said, adding that “you never know when you respond to a call, what you are going to run into.”

Corina said both officers were wearing bulletproof vests and were shot in the body.

Police have not identified the shooter pending the ongoing investigation, but described him as a Los Angeles gang member who had been released on parole within the last two weeks and had many tattoos, including on his neck and face. He was driving a stolen car from East L.A.

More ‘Drain the Swamp’ of the State Department

One of Donald John Trump’s campaign promises was “Drain the Swamp”.

drain-the-swamp

The State Department is notorious for being a bastion of liberal bureaucrats even in Republican administrations. It is also a corrupt bureaucracy.

Recall that in the 3+ years (2009-2013) when Hillary Clinton headed the department as U.S. Secretary of State, she used the State Department as a personal “pay-for-play” fiefdom, while she took foreign policy orders from George Soros. See:

Recall also how uncooperative the State Department was in the FBI’s investigation of Hillary’s illicit private email server. See:

Then there is the State Department’s “7th Floor Group” that an FBI document identified as America’s “shadow government”. (See “FBI confirms U.S. has a shadow government“)

So if any federal bureaucracy’s swamp needed draining, the State Department is top of the list.

Even before Rex Tillerson was confirmed as Secretary of State, the draining of the State Department swamp already had begun with the resignation of four senior staffers. One of them is none other than a member of the 7th Floor GroupPatrick F. Kennedy (no relation to the Kennedy clan), long-time Undersecretary for Management who had been with the State Department since 1973.

patrick-f-kennedy

Happily, the draining of the swamp is continuing under new Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

CBS News reports that on February 16, 2017, while Rex Tillerson was on his first overseas trip as Secretary of State, much of the 7th Floor staff, who work for the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources and the Counselor offices, were told their services were no longer needed. These staffers are often the conduit between the secretary’s office to the country bureaus, where the regional expertise is centered.

Daniel Halper of the New York Post observed the obvious — that the firing of the 7th Floor Group is “a symbolically important sign to the rest of the diplomatic corps that their new boss has different priorities than the last one.”

amb-kristie-kenneyOne of those who were laid off is Ambassador Kristie Kenney, the Counselor of the State Department and a career foreign service officer who had served as an ambassador under Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton. Kenney was one of the last remaining senior officials. Her staff was told that Secretary Tillerson does not intend to fill the counselor’s position anytime soon.

The Trump administration has sent clear signals that many key foreign policy portfolios will be controlled directly by the White House, rather than through the professional diplomats. As an example, not a single State Department official was included in the White House meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week. Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner – who has  no regional expertise or diplomatic experience –  had a greater role in the meeting than the Secretary of State Tillerson.

tom-countrymanTom Countryman, Former Assistant Secetary for Non-Proliferation who was let go earlier this month, griped: “It is irresponsible to let qualified, nonpartisan, experienced people go before you have any idea of their replacement. You can’t do foreign policy by sitting in the White House, just out of your back pocket.” Countryman worries that the White House intends to not rely on the State Department for foreign policy and that no one will be left in the department to challenge the edicts drawn up in the Oval Office.

State Department spokesman R.C. Hammond, a new hire at the State Department who previously worked for Newt Gingrich, did not respond to the specific question of what motivated the layoffs but provided the following statement: “As part of the transition from one administration to the next we continue to build out our team. The State Department is supported by a very talented group of individuals, both Republicans and Democrats. We are appreciative to any American who dedicates their talents to public service.‎”
