Virginians form sanctuaries and militias against governor & state legislature gun grab

Virginia was a “swing” state in presidential elections.

On Tuesday, November 6, 2019, however, the state became a solid “blue”. With Democrats already holding the state’s three highest offices (governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general), after two years of Republican control of the state House and Senate by single-seat majorities, the voters of Virginia saw fit to give Democrats full control of the state government for the first time since 1994 by giving Democrats majority control of the state legislature as well. 

Gun control was the Democrats’ major theme in the November 6th elections. They received $2.5 million in funding from 2020 Democrat presidential candidate (((Michael Bloomberg)))’s Everytown for Gun Safety. The four Virginia prosecutors who won on Nov. 6 were also funded by another billionaire leftist, George Soros.

Virginia’s pro-abort Gov. Ralph Northam (D), 60, wasted no time in pushing his gun control agenda. The morning after the election, Northam told CNN he would reintroduce a package of gun control laws in January, including universal background checks, “red flag” laws, and bans on bump stocks and high volume magazines. Northam said: “I’m convinced, with the majority now in the House and the Senate, they’ll become law.” See “Elections have consequences: ‘Blue’ Virginia goes whole hog for gun control”.

Democrats in the Virginia State Senate also hit the ground running:

  • 12 days after the election, on November 18, 2019, 79-year-old pro-abort state senator Dick Saslaw (D) introduced a bill, SB 16, effectively to confiscate “assault firearms” and “certain firearm magazine” by outlawing their possession. See “‘Blue’ Virginia State Senate bill to confiscate ‘assault firearms’”.
  • Three days later, on November 21, 2019,state senator Louise Lucas (D) introduced a bill, SB 64, that violates the U.S. Constitution’s First and Second Amendments by criminalizing instruction and training in using firearms and in self-defense, “assembling” with others to target shoot, as well as march or parade while carrying a firearm. See “‘Blue’ Virginia senate bill to ban firearm and martial arts instruction”.

In response, Virginians who jealously guard their liberty, especially our Constitutional right to “bear arms,” are fighting back by forming Second Amendment sanctuaries and militias.

(1) Second Amendment sanctuaries

To begin, more than 80 counties in Virginia have adopted Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions declaring that county police will not enforce state-level gun laws that violate Second Amendment rights.

As examples, Halifax county overwhelmingly passed a resolution opposing any new gun control legislation that might be passed in the coming state assembly. In southwestern Buchanan County, residents signed a statement demanding the resignation of Gov. Northam.

Sanctuary resolutions, however, have failed to gain support in the urban and densely-populated counties of Virginia, such as Roanoke, Richmond, Arlington, Loudon and Henrico. In Roanoke, as an example, a resolution was defeated at a meeting of the all-Democrat Roanoke City Council where more than 50 gun rights supporters had voiced concerns before Mayor Sherman Lea.

Virginia is not the first state where counties have passed Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions. Similar measures have found success in Illinois, Alaska, Wyoming, and Oregon over the past decade.

In response to the populist movement of Second Amendment sanctuaries, Virginia’s Democratic officials are resorting to threats and intimidation (Washington Examiner):

  • Democratic Virginia Rep. Gerry Connolly threatens to prosecute county police who refuse to enforce future gun control measures, saying: “I would hope they either resign in good conscience, because they cannot uphold the law which they are sworn to uphold, or they’re prosecuted for failure to fulfill their oath. The law is the law. If that becomes the law, you don’t have a choice, not if you’re a sworn officer of the law.”
  • Democratic Virginia Rep. Donald McEachin suggests cutting off state funds to counties that do not comply with any gun control measures that pass in Richmond: “If the sheriff’s department is not going to enforce the law, they’re going to lose money. The counties’ attorneys offices are not going to have the money to prosecute.” McEachin also said that Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam could call the National Guard, if necessary: “And ultimately…the governor may have to nationalize the National Guard to enforce the law.”

The threat to sic the National Guard on sanctuary counties led to this defiant statement from a member of the Virginia National Guard. He told Law Enforcement Today, referring to Rep. McEachin:

If you and your fellow Constitution-hating hacks continue to push an agenda of gun banning, forfeiture and confiscation, I can almost assure you that you might meet more than one requirement for enacting martial law.

If you force local law enforcement to start violating peoples 2nd Amendment rights by taking their guns, you will wind up with temporary emergency due to an occupied territory.

There are people who will dig in. They will fortify their habitations. They will stand firm in their resolution to exercise their un-infringed right. And it will get ugly….

And oh, by the way, plan on seeing the vast majority of the Virginia National Guard become Conscientious Objectors. It will be really hard for them to arrest cops and confiscate guns when none of them will carry the necessary arms to enforce said arrests and confiscations.

How do I know this? I am one of them and will be one of the first to lay down my gun and walk away.

I will not be a pawn in a tyrannical game of human chess. Neither will most of the men and women I serve with.

(2) Militia

On December 20, 2019, Law Enforcement Today (LET) reports that a “growing number of people” have told LET they’re joining the militia. Significantly, these “growing number of people” aren’t just the traditional “three percenters,” but are “a melting pot of people who have had enough” — cops (both active and retired), military veterans, moms, blacks, whites, straight and gay.

For reporting on the “growing number” of Virginians who say they’re joining militias, LET received an anonymous threat from someone who claims to be a member of Congress. The note says:

“Your reporting about the growing numbers in the militia create a clear and present threat to America.  As part of Congress, I’m giving you fair warning that this is the equivalent of shouting ‘fire’ in a movie theater. If your reporting incites violence, or can even be tied to it, we will make sure to charge your editors with felonies.”

One of the militias being formed is in Tazewell County.

Law Enforcement Today (LET) reports that on December 10, 2019, by unanimous votes of its board of supervisors and to the cheer of more than 200 citizens, Tazewell County passed two resolutions. The first declared the county to be a Second Amendment sanctuary; the second resolution officially formed a citizens’ militia to defend the Constitution.

The resolutions also:

  • Remove funding for any law enforcement department that infringe residents’ right to keep and bear arms.
  • Call for concealed weapons training for any resident of the county who can lawfully own a gun.
  • Call for schools to adopt firearms safety training programs.

“Within hours” of reporting that Tazewell County’s formation of a militia, LET was “flooded” with thousands of emails from people across the state – police officers, veterans, and patriotic Americans – who said they are joining. “And it’s a movement that’s gaining traction across the state.”

Virginia is shaping up to be the place where the battle for our Constitutional rights will begin. Molon Labe!H/t CSM, Anon and John Molloy

George Soros banned from 6 countries

Though he is 89 years old, George Soros — through his Open Society Foundations, to which he’s donated more than $32 billion — continues to foment turmoil, unrest and mischief across the world.

In the United States, Soros has/had his hand in the Antifa, the Ferguson race riots, the “caravans” of Central American “migrants,” and the “whistleblower” who ignited the Demonrats’ current efforts to impeach President Trump. In Europe, Soros is behind the flood of “refugees” and “migrants,” Ukraine, “climate change” activist Great Thunberg, and the Brexit chaos.

Some countries, however, have taken steps to expel and ban Soros, his operatives, and his Open Society. In chronological order, the six countries are:

  1. Pakistan
  2. Poland
  3. Turkey
  4. Russia
  5. Hungary
  6. Philippines

While not outright banning him, the Israeli government has said Soros is not welcome there.

The only question is why Soros still has not been banned from the United States.

Since August 2017, there is a “White House petition to declare George Soros a terrorist and seize all of his related organizations’ assets under RICO and NDAA law,” which has been signed by 197,385 people — enough to get a response from the White House. To sign the petition, go here.

We The Voters Are Being Impeached

Not just President Trump

I call it the “Inevitable Outcome” strategy

This is a psyop pointed directly at the American people. You know the trick: Al Gore loses an election and throws a tantrum by demanding a recount that stretches for months. Al Franken loses a senatorial election and demands recounts until he has found enough (fraudulent) votes to “win.” Hillary Clinton loses the presidential election and launches an army of deep state operatives bent on driving President Trump out of office. Frankly, it wearies me.

The real attack is on the voters

As each new day comes, with the Demonrat’s Bolshevik Impeachment Circus carrying on, the sense of being personally attacked grows stronger. It’s not just an attack on a politician (President Trump), it is an attack on the American people and the Constitution of the United States.

Like a school yard bully, they will threaten to hurt you if you don’t give them your lunch

That threat hangs in the air with every move we make to restore our nation. Appoint a conservative judge, and expect a bunch of liars to come out of the woodwork mercilessly attacking the candidate with false accusations. Take a conservative stand on air and expect be doxed and to see a screaming mob outside your home.

The one thing the Left wants is power

If we do not give them what they demand, we can expect to see their tantrums escalate until we give in. If we do give in to their demands, the tyranny will become perfect for the hundred year anniversary of the Russian Revolution. There are things worse than death; we must stand against them at all costs.

Where we are now

The Leftist Politicians, together with the News and Entertainment Media, Leftist Academia, Tech Giants, Atifa, and all their hordes are rushing in at us. But as they fully commit and show their true colors, they are unknowingly exposing themselves to the scrutiny of the watching world. They are permanently discrediting themselves from serious consideration of their views in the future.

They have gotten away with this for a long time, but that was largely because they had not been unmasked. Walter Cronkite, “the most trusted man in America,” was not known for his true allegiance to the devil.

Thankfully now, they have unmasked themselves

…and their ability to deceive will be greatly diminished.

Son of Weather Underground terrorists, Chesa Boudin, wins SF DA race

Chesa Boudin, 39, is the son of Weather Underground terrorists Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert who were arrested for their role as getaway car drivers in the Brink’s robbery of 1981 in Rockland County, New York.

After his parents were incarcerated (when he was 14 months old) fellow Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dorhn adopted Chesa.

According to WFMZ, Chesa won San Francisco’s tightly contested race for district attorney after campaigning to reform the criminal justice system. Excerpts from their report:

“The former deputy public defender declared victory Saturday night after four days of ballot counting determined he was ahead of interim District Attorney Suzy Loftus. The latest results from the San Francisco Department of Elections gave Boudin a lead of 8,465 votes.

Boudin, 39, became the latest candidate across the nation to win district attorney elections by pushing for sweeping reform over incarceration. He said he wants to tackle racial bias in the criminal justice system, overhaul the bail system, protect immigrants from deportation and pursue accountability in police misconduct cases.

Boudin entered the race as an underdog and captured voters’ attention with his extraordinary life story: He was 14 months old when his parents, who were members of the far-left Weather Underground, dropped him off with a babysitter and took part in an armored car robbery in upstate New York that left two police officers and a security guard dead.

He was raised in Chicago by Weather Underground leaders Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn before studying law at Yale University. He later won a Rhodes Scholarship and worked as a translator for Venezuela’s late President Hugo Chavez before coming to San Francisco.”

Read the whole story here.

Some of Chesa’s issues as described on his DA campaign web site:

Stand up to Trump Immigration: The Trump administration has waged a savage and xenophobic war on immigrants, tearing families apart, undermining trust in law enforcement, and exposing hundreds of thousands of people to brutal and inhumane conditions in immigrant detention facilities across the country, including right here in Northern California. Though San Francisco is a sanctuary city, many members of our community face a litany of threats here We must protect all members of our community from these attacks.

Reduce Gun Violence: As District Attorney, Chesa Boudin will take a multi-faceted approach to reducing the gun violence that continues to plague San Francisco’s black and brown communities. Specifically, Boudin will combine rigorous enforcement of existing gun laws with community partnerships, and gun buy backs to address gun violence from a public health perspective, and to prevent gun violence before it happens.

Eliminate Money Bail: As District Attorney, he vows never to ask for money bail that is tantamount to detention and will only ever seek detention of those defendants who present a serious risk of flight or danger to the community, and for whom there are no less restrictive alternatives.

Read his more at his web site here.

If you truly believe that Chesa is going to bring about any substantive change to the streets of San Francisco, well good for you and your optimism. You obviously don’t know enough about this toxic, Soros-supported “radical spawn.”

Elections have consequences: ‘Blue’ Virginia goes whole hog for gun control

Last May, after a mass shooting that left 13 people dead at a Virginia Beach municipal building by a city engineer armed with two .45-caliber handguns, Virginia’s Democrat governor Ralph Northam asked state lawmakers to hold a special session to discuss gun control. The Republican-controlled legislature met for just 90 minutes, and left without voting on any gun-control proposals.

Virginia was considered a “swing” state in presidential elections. On Tuesday, November 6, 2019, the state became a solid “blue”. With Democrats already holding the state’s three highest offices (governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general), after two years of Republican control in the state House and Senate by single-seat majorities, the voters of Virginia saw fit to give Democrats full control of the state government for the first time since 1994. Democrats won at least 21 of 40 seats in the state Senate and 51 seats in the 100-member House of Delegates.

Virginia’s pro-abort Gov. Ralph Northam (D), 60, a pediatric neurologist by occupation and a former U.S. Army medical officer, wasted no time in pushing his gun control agenda.

As reported by Justine Wise for The Hill, in a statement Tuesday night, Northam crowed that the “ground has shifted in Virginia government. Since I took office two years ago, we have made historic progress as a Commonwealth. Tonight, Virginians made it clear they want us to continue building on that progress.” He claimed that the results signaled that voters wanted state lawmakers to take action on issues such as gun safety and climate change.

Early the next morningt on CNN’s “New Day“, Northam said he planned to reintroduce a package of gun control laws during the next legislative session: “Things like universal background checks. Getting rid of bump stocks, high volume magazines, ‘red flag’ laws. These are commonsense pieces of legislation. I will introduce those again in January. And I’m convinced, with the majority now in the House and the Senate, they’ll become law and because of that Virginia will be safer.”

In fact, gun control was a major theme for Democrats running in Tuesday’s elections, who had a commitment from Everytown for Gun Safety, the group funded by former New York City Mayor (((Michael Bloomberg))), to spend $2.5 million on Democratic candidates. The four Virginia prosecutors who won on Tuesday were also funded by another billionaire leftist, George Soros.

Everytown for Gun Safety’s president, (((John Feinblatt))), said in a statement that the Democrats’ victories would “resonate around the country, and should terrify elected officials up and down the ballot who have stood in the way of gun safety.” Referring to Bloomberg, the National Rifle Association said the election results meant Virginians would now experience life under a “distant tycoon’s thumb.”

George Soros admits he’s impeded by Trump to turn U.S. socialist

A week ago, on Oct. 26, 2019, 89-year-old billionaire George Soros, who has spent his fortune promoting open borders and leftwing politicians, media, and organizations, said he has been impeded by opponents, including President Trump, in his lifelong quest to transform the United States into socialism, which he calls “open society”.

Soros said that in an interview on Michel Martin’s  All Things Considered on National Public Radio (NPR). Although NPR is funded by U.S. taxpayers, Soros’ Open Society Foundations, to which he had given more than $32 billion, is a financial supporter of NPR — as much as $1.8 million in 2011.

Between the election of President Trump and Britain’s ongoing debate over Brexit, Soros recognizes that populism is on the rise and that his brand of liberal democracy is faltering. He said:

“When I got involved in what I call political philanthropy some 40 years ago, the open society idea was on the ascendant — closed societies were opening up. And now, open societies are on the defensive and dictatorships are on the rise. I have to admit that the tide has turned against me, but I don’t think that I have failed. If you really have principles that you believe in, then you have to fight for them — win or lose.”

Soros said his priority now is fighting President Trump’s reelection — that’s some “promotion of democracy”!. Stopping short of endorsing her, Soros said Sen. Fauxcohontas Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), the favored candidate of the Demonrat Party elites, is “the clear-cut person to beat.”

Penny Starr of Breitbart points out that NPR portrays Soros as a benign philanthropist who only wants to “promote democracy” in some 120 countries across the world. That “promotion of democracy” included a $25,100 donation to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Suggesting that any criticism of Soros is motivated by rank anti-Semitism, never mind the fact that Soros had admitted helping Nazis to confiscate property from Jews, NPR states that “Soros, who is Jewish and a survivor of the Nazi occupation of Hungary, has also been a frequent target of conspiracy theorists, white nationalists and neo-Nazis.”

Here is the 1998 60 Minutes interview that YouTube repeatedly took down, in which Soros admitted he had helped Nazis against Jews. Below is my transcription:

Steve Croft (“60 Minutes” interviewer: “My understanding is that you went out with this [Nazi] protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson…and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.”

Soros, knodding his head in the affirmative: “Yes.”

Croft: “That sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?”

Soros, shaking his head: “No. Not at all, not at all.”

Democrat Party’s oligarchs want Elizabeth Warren, fear Bernie Sanders

Interesting article, “Elizabeth Warren in the Hillary Clinton of 2020,” by John R. MacArthur in The Spectator, U.S. edition, October 23, 2019.

MacArthur makes a compelling case that:

  • Fauxcahontas Elizabeth Warren is a faux left-wing populist, whereas Bernie Sanders is a genuine left-wing populist.
  • That’s why the super-rich Democrat oligarchs — the Establishment who really rule America — like Warren, in spite of her rhetoric of increasing taxes on the super-rich (a special wealth tax on the 75,000 richest Americans), because they know she’s a fake. In contrast, the oligarchs regard Bernie as the genuine insurgent and the genuine radical.
  • That Warren is a fake left-wing populist is shown in her appeasement of Democrat bigwigs such as Hillary Clinton, with whom Warren regularly has “private conversations”.
  • That Warren poses no threat to the Democrat oligarchs is also seen in the fact that she is liked by the two bastions of élite liberal thinkingNew York Times and Washington Post.
  • At the same time as Warren is favored by mega-rich Democrat donors, her being a woman makes her attractive to the “identity politics” of the party’s radical-left base. All of which makes Warren a consensus candidate of the party’s mega-rich oligarchs and the cultural-Marxist ideologues.
  • New York Times‘ national correspondent Jonathan Martin wrote a piece earlier this year headlined “What Elizabeth Warren is quietly telling Democratic insiders,” in which Martin describes Warren as “a team player who is seeking to lead the party — not stage a hostile takeover of it”. As The Spectator‘s MacArthur puts it:

Warren has always respected party protocol. She’s been eager to stress that she has no desire to seize control of the party machinery, which ensures the trains carrying money and patronage jobs run on time. She even signed a ‘pledge’ authored by the Association of State Democratic Committees not to poach on their turf with a supra-party organization of her own. This is precisely the sin Bernie Sanders and his allies committed by creating a national non-profit advocacy organization, Our Revolution, which competes directly with the Democratic National Committee and its 50 state counterparts. When Sanders talks about revolution, he really means it.

On the Democrat oligarchs, see also my post of October 22: “Democrats are now the party of the super-rich; Republicans, party of workers”.

Update:

An hour after I published this post comes the definitive confirmation that Elizabeth Warren indeed is the favored candidate of super-rich Democrats.

Citing a New York Times interview, Daily Caller reports that none other than the über Democrat oligarch, billionaire globalist George Soros, has declared Warren as “the clear-cut person to beat” — the clear favorite to win the Democratic presidential nomination.

The Democrats’ Existential Imperative for (at least theoretical) Impeachment

Cross-linked from TrevorLoudon.com

Impeach President Trump for Russian collusion; for emoluments; for obstruction of justice. Now for Ukraine (and Australia and China and then (?). Adam Schiff and his fellow Democrats and Deep Staters’ impeachment jihad could be viewed as obsessed, crazy – perhaps even comedic, as they (and Adam Schiff in particular) increasingly resemble Wile E. Coyote futilely chasing the Road Runner.

But even crazy and obsessed people can be rational in their machinations. What if the Deep State swamp crocodiles fully recognize that it is unlikely that they’ll succeed in removing President Trump from office through impeachment, yet still persist? Is there a method to their madness? Yes.

True, they desperately want to take out President Trump, and dare not rely upon the electoral process plus whatever voter fraud they can muster to accomplish that for them. So impeachment is their offensive element, and remains their best-case scenario. Still, after Mueller belly-flopped, they must have finally realized (if not before) that a successful impeachment and removal from office is highly unlikely, if not impossible.

But there is also a defensive element. They have to surmise that Trump’s declassifications, and (let us pray) DOJ indictments will occur between the release of the Inspector General’s report and the 2020 election. So they also require a defensive strategy well before the election. The Democrats can, and are, simultaneously playing both offense and defense.

Continue your boycott! Netflix loses subscribers; shares drop

Christians and Conservatives’ boycott of Netflix is having an effect!

Kaylee Greenlee reports for The Daily Signal that on Wednesday, July 17, 2019, Netflix’s quarterly report shows a loss of 126,000 domestic paid subscribers — its first in eight years — compared with analysts’ expectations for a 352,000 gain. Netflix also missed its own forecast for global subscriber growth by 2.3 million.

Before the release of the shareholders report, Netflix’s shares were up more than 35%. Now, the stock will open at its lowest price since January.

Not coincidentally, the dip in subscriptions came in the same quarter as Netflix’s decision to oppose Georgia’s pro-life heartbeat bill, which was signed into law by Gov. Brian Kemp (R), on May 7. Set to go into effect on Jan. 1, the law will impose restrictions on abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected.

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp

On the day of the bill’s passage, Gov. Kemp said he is standing by his promise to implement the “toughest abortion bill in the country” and that “Georgia is a state that values life. We stand up for those who are unable to speak for themselves.”

Following the bill’s passage, Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos told Variety that Netflix will work with the ACLU and others to “fight it in court,” and that “Should it ever come into effect, we’d rethink our entire investment in Georgia.”

See “Netflix joins fight against Georgia’s abortion law

At the time, Lila Rose, 30, president and founder of the pro-life nonprofit Live Action, tweeted her opposition to Sarandos’ comments:

“Half the country is pro-life. The vast majority want abortion limits. Netflix’s pro-abortion views are regressive and don’t belong in a civilized, loving society. Wake up, Netflix. Many of your employees, customers and America are increasingly pro-life.”

Commenting on the drop in Netflix’s domestic subscription, Rose said: “When Georgia passed the Heartbeat bill, Netflix threatened to stop doing business in the pro-life state. Thousands of pro-life customers expressed their outrage.”

According to MarketWatch, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said no single factor led to the subscription shortfall, but that a pricing increase, the quarterly content slate and seasonality were all factors. Eric Haggstrom, eMarketer forecasting analyst, said Netflix was hurt by the defection of lower-priced subscribers who may be looking to jump to a wave of competing services over the next 6 to 18 months.

Netflix characterized Q2 as a momentary blip and projects a strong third quarter, with 7 million paid subscriber additions worldwide. A shareholders report also tried to put a positive spin, stating that Netflix’s “U.S. paid membership was essentially flat in Q2, [but they] expect it to return to more typical growth in Q3.”

Why wait? Send a big, fat check NOW: America’s richest billionaires say they want to be taxed more

Absolutely NOTHING is stopping these fools from writing a check RIGHT NOW to the US government. Demorats, send your money here.

From NY Post: The richest of the one percent have a message for the 2020 presidential candidates – tax us.

Financier George Soros and heiress Abigail Disney are among the 19 billionaires who published an open letter Monday to Republican and Democratic hopefuls saying that they “support a moderate wealth tax on the fortunes of the richest 1/10 of the richest 1% of Americans — on us.”

”The next dollar of new tax revenue should come from the most financially fortunate, not from middle-income and lower-income Americans,” they wrote.

Along with Soros and Disney, other signers include Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, Molly Munger, daughter of Berkshire Hathaway vice chairman Charlie Munger, and members of the Pritzker family – along with one anonymous.

”America has a moral, ethical and economic responsibility to tax our wealth more,” they write in the letter.

A wealth tax could raise funds to address the climate change crisis, bolster health care measures, curb income inequality and provide relief for those with student loans.

”The concept of a wealth tax isn’t new: Millions of middle-income Americans already pay a wealth tax each year in the form of property taxes on their primary form of wealth — their home,” the letter says. “The kind of moderate tax on the richest 1/10 of 1% that we support just asks us to pay a small wealth tax on the primary source of our wealth as well.”

The letter noted that a number of Democratic candidates – Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke and Rep. Tim Ryan – support the idea.
