How is this possible? Despite strict gun control laws, NJ arts festival shooting leaves 22 injured

stoopid

On June 13, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy (D) signed six bills aimed at eliminating gun violence infringing upon our Second Amendment rights. Those bills included: expand gun background checks, tighten the handgun carrying permit process, reduce the legal capacity of ammunition magazines and establish a so-called “red flag” law.

Even before these bills, New Jersey had some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the nation.

A shooting occurred over the weekend that injured over 20 people. Guess the governor needs to sign off on MORE gun control laws…

From Fox News: Nearly two dozen people were injured after gunfire broke out early Sunday during a fight at an all-night art event in New Jersey’s capital city, leaving one suspect dead which authorities said appeared to be caused by “neighborhood beef.”

(The dead suspect had just been released from prison.)

Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri said at a news conference that a total of 22 people were injured in the shooting, 17 of whom were treated for gunshot wounds at nearby hospitals. A second suspect is in custody.

“It’s a massive crime scene,” Onofri said.

Two suspects opened fire shortly before 2:45 a.m. at the 24-hour Art All Night show in the Roebling Market section of the city, according to Onofri, who told The Associated Press a “neighborhood beef” was behind the shooting.

The event began Saturday afternoon and was scheduled to continue until Sunday afternoon and typically draws thousands of people. The festival showcases local art, music and food.

“This is truly a tragedy for Trenton,” Trenton Mayor Eric Jackson said. Four people are listed as in critical condition, including a 13-year-old boy who is in “extremely critical condition,” according to Onofri.

Police have identified at least two suspects in the shooting. One, a 33-year-old man, was pronounced dead while the other was taken into police custody. Onofri said authorities “believe” the suspect who died was shot and killed by police. Trenton police at the scene told NJ.com that officers engaged with at least one gunman.

Authorities are now combing through the warehouse where the shooting took place as part of the investigation. Onofri said that “multiple weapons” were recovered at the scene. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said on Twitter the agency is “actively assisting” Trenton and New Jersey State Police with the shooting.

Onofri said that authorities are also investigating an attempted carjacking that took place in the area after the shooting. Three people were in a vehicle when a man came up and pointed a gun at them, the prosecutor said. Their vehicle sustained “some damage” during the confrontation, he added, without releasing further details.

A witness told The Trentonian he witnessed a fight break out before gunshots rang out, with several punches being thrown. “I saw two punches and then heard several gunshots,” Franco Roberts said.

Roberts told the newspaper he thought something bad was going to happen because there were “more people outside than in the warehouse” standing around.  “Everybody ran toward the door,” he said. “And the people fighting and shooting got mixed with the crowd that was running and they went out the door shooting.”

Angelo Nicolo told WPVI that he and his brother were at the event when they heard loud popping sounds, and that people started running down the street. “And all of a sudden, my brother goes to me, ‘You hear that gunfire?’ I go, ‘It sounds like fireworks.’ He said, ‘No, that’s gunfire.’ Next thing you know, we turn around and everybody’s running down the street. All hell broke loose,” Nicolo said.

The Trenton resident said he saw one person with a gunshot wound to the leg. “I saw two police officers escort a guy that got shot in the leg; they bandaged him up and whisked him away before the ambulance came here,” he told WPVI. “It was pretty gnarly.”

The event was billed as a showcase for more than 1,500 pieces of art. Authorities said that about 1,000 people were in the area when the shooting started and people stampeded.

“Devastated by last night’s shooting at Art All Night Trenton,” New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said on Twitter. “We must eradicate the scourge of gun violence from our communities.”

Too bad, so sad: Comedy Central cancels “The Opposition”

jordan klepper.png

Back on September 25, 2017, Comedy Central debuted “The Opposition” with Jordan Klepper.  About the show, from Wikipedia:

“The Opposition with Jordan Klepper is an American late-night talk and news satire program that premiered on Comedy Central on September 25, 2017. The show is hosted by comedian Jordan Klepper, a former correspondent on The Daily Show, and satirizes right-wing politics. It airs each Monday through Thursday at 11:30 pm (EST), following The Daily Show.”

The Business Insider had an article about the intent the The Opposition:

“One of the most prominent features of the set of “The Opposition” is a permanently installed Murder Board, a tackboard reminiscent of “A Beautiful Mind” with nonsense scribbled next to a 2016 electoral map, and images and arrows linking Beyoncé, former Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Taylor Swift, and, of course, Hillary Clinton.

For Klepper, the figures and scrawling on the board represent the obsession and paranoid thinking of the emerging right-wing-media landscape during the era of President Donald Trump, in which he said the “bar for what now we can put out there to make our case was lowered immensely.”

“You just need a shred. A shred of something that you can weave into something larger,” Klepper told Business Insider in an interview in his office a week before the show’s debut. “Donald Trump was the best at ‘I heard a thing, I’m in a position of power by repeating it, I now legitimize it to millions, to my 30-plus million followers, and I’m in a position where people just trust those things that I say.'”

“The Opposition” is the major first comedy show with a baked-in acknowledgement of the shift in the conservative-media landscape away from the dogmatic, small-government Reagan Republican. The show will focus on the heightened influence of the online right-wing figures to subtly and overtly influence the political discourse.

Nine months later, the show has been cancelled.

From MSN:

Comedy Central’s daily late-night program The Opposition with Jordan Klepper will end its run after one season but Klepper is staying on the network with a new weekly half-hour series. Tentatively titled Klepper, it will feature the comedian out in the field, traveling the country and speaking to people.

The Opposition‘s last episode will air on June 28. Klepper just shared the news with the show’s staff. Development on the new show will start right after, with pre-production slated to begin in the fall and a premiere eyed for early 2019 in the 10 PM-11 PM time period.

The timing of the decision stems from the fact that The Opposition was wrapping its first season, with a slew of contracts for people in front and behind the camera coming up for renewal for another year.

“That added into the accelerated pace of the decision but it was mostly driven by excitement about the new show,” Comedy Central president Kent Alterman said. “We can’t do both obviously so we are winding down The Opposition in accordance with gearing up Klepper.”

CNN celebrates Father’s Day with a father who gave birth to a son

Today is Father’s Day.

CNN celebrates Father’s Day by publishing an article extolling a father who gave birth to his son.

By this time, your eyebrows probably are raised high as you exclaim: “But how can a man conceive and give birth?”

Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s immortal creation, famously said: “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.”

And so it is with CNN’s father who gave birth to a son, which is a biological impossibility because only females can conceive and give birth.

It turns out that the “father” whom CNN honors on Father’s Day is a mentally-ill woman who conceived and gave birth to a son, but who imagines herself to be “transgender”. So, she changed her name to Sabastian, had her breasts surgically excised, and takes massive doses of testosterone to “transition” into a man — which, of course, is a biological impossibility.

Sabastian Sparks

Hank Berrien reports for The Daily Wire, June 15, 2018, that “Just in time for Father’s Day, CNN brings you the story of” a very confused and confusing couple in suburban Atlanta — Sabastian Sparks, 24, a biological female who calls herself a transgender man, and Angel Sparks, 33, a biological male who calls himself a transgender woman. Angel is a “multi-faith minister”.

After Sabastian began taking “gender-transition” testosterone, she conceived a child with Angel, who was already “transitioning” into a “transgender” woman but stopped taking hormones long enough that they could conceive a son.

Angel Sparks

Below are excerpts from Kendall Trammell’s CNN article, “He gave birth. He breastfed. Now, he wants his son to see him as a man”:

Sabastion, 24, is a transgender man who lives with his wife Angel in suburban Atlanta. Assigned the female gender at birth, he began transitioning five years ago. It’s a process that felt more complete last month when he had surgery to remove his breasts.

Sabastion Sparks gave birth to son Jaxen in October 2016.

With Father’s Day approaching, Sabastion finds himself thinking about gender roles and what it means to be a dad. He wants Jaxen, their 20-month-old son, to have as normal a childhood as possible….

By the time Sabastion met Angel five years ago at a convention for transgender people, he identified as a man. Angel, 33, was designated male at birth but had transitioned years earlier.

They both knew they wanted to be parents. After they were married in 2016, they agreed that Sabastion would carry their child — a decision, Angel Sparks says, that wasn’t taken lightly.

Like many transgender men and women, they had been taking medication to increase the testosterone or estrogen in their bodies. So to make a baby, they briefly stopped taking their hormone pills….

After breastfeeding his son, Sabastion Sparks had his breasts removed in May….

[T]here are some things Sabastion wants to teach Jaxen, father to son. One of them is how to pee standing up — something Sabastion does with the help of a detachable prosthetic….

“People think trans people can’t be good parents, and that’s not true,” Sabastion adds. “Trans parents are just like any other parents.”

The world has gone mad . . . .

Angela Merkel’s German government facing collapse over her immigration stance

merkel muslim

Merkel: “Islam is not a source of terror”

Shocker, not.

From Fox News: Angela Merkel’s government is on the brink as the German chancellor battles her coalition partners on immigration and asylum seekers.

The coalition between Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) and the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU) has fractured over the latter’s new proposed policy that would turn away more asylum seekers at the country’s borders.

The policy flies in the face of the most powerful woman in the world and de factor leader of the European Union. In 2015, her ‘open door’ policy to migrants saw approximately a million refugees flood into the country. Although migrant arrivals have dropped steeply in the past two years, Germany still registered around 11,000 new asylum-seekers each month.

Her decision is believed to be a major contributing factor to the surge in support for the far-Right and anti-Islam Alternative for Germany (AfD), which became the third-largest party in Germany after the 2017 federal election when it won 94 seats in the Bundestag.

Horst Seehofer, the CSU interior minister, whose party is facing regional elections in October, wants Germany to turn back refugees who have already registered in other European countries. He also wants to block migrants whose asylum applications in Germany have already been rejected from returning.

Merkel fears such a move could increase the burden on countries include Italy, Greece and Spain, believing it could potentially fracture the European Union even further. While she wants to see a bilateral agreement at a EU summit and the end of June, the CSU has set her an effective ultimatum of next Monday.

“Personally, I think that illegal migration is one of the challenges for the European Union and therefore I believe that we shouldn’t act unilaterally, that we shouldn’t act without coordination and that we shouldn’t act in a way that burdens third parties, involved,” Merkel said.

Wolfgang Schaueble, the former finance minister and current parliamentary president who is respected on both sides, has been asked to mediate negotiations between the CDU and CSU. “We are in a serious, a very serious situation,” said Alexander Dobrindt, the CSU parliamentary group leader.

A poll published on Thursday by German broadcaster ARD found that 62 per cent of its citizens believe refugees without papers should not be allowed in.

The CSU fears that anti-immigration sentiment in the country could bring an end to its decades-old stranglehold on Bavaria’s government. They face crucial regional elections in October.

The coalition’s center-left ally, the Social Democrat Party (SPD), has demanded that the dispute be settled. Andrea Nahles, the leader of the SDP, accused Markus Soeder, the governor of Bavaria, and Seehofer of “taking all of Germany and Europe hostage”.

She added that Soeder was acting like a “bonsai Trump”. 

Olaf Scholz, the SPF finance minister, said: “The task of governing our country is not an episode of Game of Thrones, but a very serious matter. Those involved should not forget that.”

Adding to tensions, a Twitter hoax made Germans think the government had already collapsed. An account claiming to be Hessicher Rundfunk state broadcaster claimed Seehofer had dissolved the alliance, but minutes later it was confirmed to be fake.

Germany has seen more than one million asylum seekers arrive since 2015 since Merkel introduced her open door policy, but she has even acknowledged the need to strengthen the EU’s external borders.

Both Austria and Italy have seen anti-immigrant parties come to power since 2015. On Wednesday, during a meeting with Seehofer, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz voices his approval of Seehofer’s ideas.  “In our view, we need an ‘axis of the willing’ in the fighter against illegal migration,” Kurz said.

Merkel has served as chancellor of Germany since 2005 and has come top of Forbes list of the 100 most powerful women in the world for 11 of the past 12 years.

The Hitler of South Africa tells white people he won’t kill them. . . yet

Simon Black – June 15, 2018 Santiago, Chile

Earlier this week while most of the world was transfixed on the World Cup, the Trump/Kim handshake, or a multitude of other sundry events, Julius Malema, aka the Hitler of South Africa, was busy telling white people in his country that he’s not going wage genocide against them. Yet.

In an interview with TRT World News published this week, Malema said, “We have not called for the killing of white people. At least for now. I can’t guarantee the future.”

When the reporter mentioned that some people might view these remarks as a call to genocide, Malema responded, “Crybabies. Crybabies,” but later warned white South Africans that “the masses are on board” for “an un-led revolution and anarchy.” 

READ HERE: https://www.sovereignman.com/trends/the-hitler-of-south-africa-tells-white-people-he-wont-kill-them-yet-23774/


While the politically correct main stream media felt satisfied they had saved South Africa from its Apartheid government, they slept as another monster loomed in plain sight. 

Pray for South Africa. Pray fervently for level heads and Christian values to prevail there; for the honest and peaceful cooperation of the races and ethnicities in that great nation.

Tourists shocked by what they see on San Francisco streets

san francisco

The streets of San Francisco…

Did nobody bother to Google the city they were about to visit? Before you make a trip to San Francisco, see the following:

From SF Gate: It’s something many San Franciscans see on a daily basis, outside their homes or offices and during their commutes. For better or for worse, locals are used to walking by crime scenes, have seen open injection drug use, and have witnessed mental health episodes firsthand.

But when a tourist lands at SFO, guidebook in hand, that reality can be shocking.

“Is this normal or am I in a ‘bad part of town?’ Just walked past numerous homeless off their faces, screaming and running all over the sidewalk near Twitter HQ and then a murder scene. Wife is scared to leave hotel now,” wrote an Australian Reddit user Wednesday.

That person isn’t alone. On Sunday, another tourist from Canada asked the San Francisco Reddit community, “Why is this city so terrifying?”

“I’d been there for probably less than a day, just wandering around the center, and already seen more than enough poverty and suffering to cause me wanting to leave desperately,” wrote another visitor from London in 2017. “I saw many people talking to themselves, or to things that weren’t there. Even in a Macy’s, and there weren’t any police officers to help them or do anything about it.”

Anyone who has hosted friends or family from out of town may have had to field similar questions.

Just those three Reddit posts garnered more than 650 comments, many of which were helpful suggestions (other neighborhoods to explore, safety tips, and more).

But the city’s own visitors’ bureau is struggling to come up with a good explanation for horrified tourists.

The streets are filthy. There’s trash everywhere. It’s disgusting,” Joe D’Alessandro, president of S.F. Travel told the Chronicle’s Heather Knight in April. “I’ve never seen any other city like this — the homelessness, dirty streets, drug use on the streets, smash-and-grabs.”

“You see things on the streets that are just not humane,” Kevin Carroll, executive director of the Hotel Council of San Francisco, also told Knight. “People come into hotels saying, ‘What is going on out there?’ They’re just shocked. … People say, ‘I love your city, I love your restaurants, but I’ll never come back.'”

Samantha Bee’s “Full Frontal” struggling to regain advertisers after vile attack on Ivanka Trump

samantha bee

Imagine my distress.

From Fox News: A new report shows Samantha Bee’s late night show “Full Frontal” hasn’t been able to regain its advertisers after the host called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c—” on her show in May.

The liberal comedian came under fire when she used an extreme vulgarity to slam Ivanka Trump in her monologue on May 30 over a photograph the first daughter shared on social media.

“You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child…But let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless c—. He listens to you,” Bee said.

Bee apologized on a June 6 episode, but the damage was done as her advertisers dropped her.

Before the vulgar remark, Bee’s TBS show had 19 advertisers but when she apologized on the June 6 episode, she was down to a mere six and has been unable to gain them back weeks later, a new Newsbusters report shows.

In her June 6 opening monologue, Bee told viewers that her insult directed at the first daughter “crossed a line.”

“It is a word I have used on the show many times, hoping to reclaim it,” Bee said. “This time, I used it as an insult. I crossed a line. I regret it and I do apologize.”

Her on-air apology came after she tweeted she was sorry.

Both Bee and TBS issued apologies the following day, with the network tweeting the “vile” comment was “our mistake too, and we regret it.”
