UK woman accuses hazmat-suited workers of faking coronavirus death

A tenant in a UK public housing complex (called “council housing“) accuses hazmat-suited government workers of faking a coronavirus death.

Admittedly, I know nothing about this incident — and could find nothing in the news — other than what the video portrays.

Meanwhile, UK police are encouraging millions of Brits to snitch on neighbors they suspect of breaking lockdown rules by calling a hotline or filling an online form. (Daily Mail)

Wuhan Coronavirus Pandemic (updated daily)

Dear friends:

There is so much news and information on this demon Wuhan virus, I decided the best thing to do is this page with links to sources, instead of writing individual posts.

This page contains two groups of news/information:

  1. A list of already-published FOTM posts on the virus.
  2. A list of other news, research and information on the virus from outside (non-FOTM) sources.

Links will continuously be added to both groups, with the newest links added to the bottom of each list. Just click the blue-colored embedded links and you’ll be brought to the source. I invite my fellow FOTM writers to add links to this page as well, including links to your virus-related posts.

This page will have a “sticky,” which means it will be the first post you see when you access FOTM‘s home page. I suggest you bookmark this page.

Please pray for President Trump, for America, and for each other,

~Eowyn

Santa Clara County DA’s office “gun grab” will have zero effect on gun violence.

Santa Clara County DA’s office “gun grab” will have zero effect on gun violence.  It’s just a “con job” to take guns from legal owner’s.

This is a follow up on DCG’s post Santa Clara County DA’s Office creates team to remove firearms from dangerous offenders.

The DA’s office of Santa Clara County(pop. 1,922,200) in  California has made the decision to remove firearms from “dangerous offenders”.  Besides felons they have included persons with restraining orders and people with a history of domestic violence.

Restraining orders– Anyone can get a emergency restraining order on anyone.  All a person needs to do is say “I think the person has a gun” when filing the restraining order.  Then by default, once the restraining order is filed, the person who is being restrained is supposed to sell their guns or turn them over to the police.  It does not matter if the person filing is making a false report.  The person still cannot be in possession  of a firearm.  They lose their gun ownership rights from 1 year up to 10 years, if not more.

The person is being punished for a crime they have not been convicted of. Guilty before proven innocent instead of Innocent until proven guilty.  They lose their gun ownership right and are being deprived of their rights. I would argue that this is a violation of  2nd, 5th and 14th amendments.

Domestic violence- Usually comes with a restraining order.  Domestic violence can be a felony or a misdemeanor.  Some common charges that fall under domestic violence are,

When a person who is charged for Domestic violence and has not been convicted, their rights are being violated in the same way as the person with a simple restraining order. The person is being punished for a crime they have not been convicted of. Guilty before proven innocent instead of Innocent until proven guilty.  They lose their gun ownership right and are being deprived of their rights. I would argue that this is a violation of  2nd, 5th and 14th amendments.

Felons- Don’t usually register guns so there is no way this move on taking guns from dangerous people will have any impact of felons having firearms.  The gun grab only takes guns from legal owners.

Gun owners associated with Domestic violence are being treated as a major threat to public safety.  We are being lead to believe that a large amount of firearm related deaths are the result of domestic violence.  We are being lead to believe that  taking guns from people accused or convicted  of domestic violence will end a large part of firearm deaths.  In California that just isn’t true.  The following is a quote from the L.A. Times after reviewing Los Angeles County(pop. 10,098,052)  Coroner’s records for 2018.

“Women are less likely than men to be killed in a shooting, but more likely to be beaten, stabbed or strangled. Female homicide victims also tend to be older, with a median age of 35, compared with 31 years old for men.”

“Last year, 114 women were killed in Los Angeles County, the highest number since the beginning of the decade, according to a Times analysis of coroner and law enforcement records. Meanwhile, the death toll for men, who make up the vast majority of casualties, declined dramatically to 523 from 755 a decade earlier.”

Considering there are at least 5,000,000 women is LA County, that number is still pretty low.  Overall, the amount of Homicides in LA county has declined.

In LA county almost 300 women have been killed in the last 3 years.  Almost half of them had a relationship with their killer at some point in time.

Here are some facts on the USA in 2017.

  • 2017 total population in the USA- 325,719,178
  • Total deaths- 2,813,503. Men 1,439,111. Women 1,374,392.
  • Suicide by firearm 23,854. 3,239 were women.,
  • Accidental discharge of firearms – 486. 63 were women.
  • Legal intervention- 616. 30 were women.
  • Assault (homicide) by discharge of firearms- 14,542. 2322  were women.(A little over half domestic violence related.) 
  • Undetermined- 338.

Total deaths connected to firearms- 39,773.  That is 1.41 % of deaths in 2017 with .041% connected to domestic violence where women were victims.

When compared to the total population in the USA,  325,719,178, Domestic violence  related deaths that involve firearms  happens to .00035644201459946% of the total population.  Firearm related deaths happens to .012210825363191% of total population. Both are hardly an excuse to violate a persons rights.

Laws are not going to stop domestic violence in the USA.  Not when you have religions like ISLAM, where beating and cutting the heads off of women is accepted.

Not saying Islam is the single cause of domestic violence. But it’s ideology promotes oppression of women.  This sort of influence  in Western  culture only fuels the opportunity for domestic violence.

Cultural diffusion promoting “old School” western values, teaching your children respect, manners, integrity, accountability, critical thinking, appreciation, compassion, courtesy,  loyalty, patriotism, the law, responsibility and to treat others like they would like to be treated would produce far better results than any gun control law.

 

 

If people are truly concerned with saving lives then they should focus their attention on the causes and cures relevant to deaths in the following images.

Second Amendment,

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”

“Shall not be infringed”.  Infringed definition is “to encroach upon in a way that violates law or the rights of another”.

That being said,  any changes to the Second Amendment, any modification that allowed any sort of gun control is unconstitutional and illegal.  The simple act of the change or modification  of the Amendment is a violation of our rights.  The changes are the infringement.

 

Respectfully,

Deplorable Patriot

Democrats kill amendment to bill which would prevent credit discrimination based on politics or religion

Frances Martel reports for Breitbart, that on Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2020, Democrats in the House of Representatives voted against an amendment to a proposed bill that would prevent the powerful Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) from forcing private credit scoring companies to evaluate Americans based on political opinions or religious beliefs — to “make use of information related to political opinions, religious expression, or other expression protected by the First Amendment, whether obtained from a social media account of a consumer or other sources.”

The amendment would have been tacked onto Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s (D-MA) Student Borrower Credit Improvement Act, or Comprehensive CREDIT Act of 2020.

House Democrats rejected the amendment with 208 votes. Only 15 Democrats voted in favor of the free speech protections. Some, like Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), took the pusillanimous non-committal way by abstaining.

Republicans warn that without such an amendment, the powerful CFPB would have the legal authority to make nearly any criteria mandatory for a private credit evaluation company to take into consideration, paving the way for a system in which the federal government has the power to assign numerical scores to individuals like Communist China’s social credit system, based on their loyalty to a certain political party, membership in civil society groups that the government approves or disapproves of, or other private behaviors.

In a statement following the House vote, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) warned that if the Senate also passes the bill (Comprehensive CREDIT Act of 2020) without the amendment, the CFPB would now have the power to use any aspect of a person’s life to change their credit score, with significant potential for abuse. McCarthy said:

“In keeping with their theme of handing over more control to the government, Democrats now support giving the CFPB unchecked authority on credit score modeling, without any built-in measure to stop potential abuse of power or violation of our Constitutional rights. There is a terrifying parallel to the practices of China’s communist regime, which seeks to control the actions of their population with a social credit score. This kind of oppressive practice is antithetical to American freedoms and ideals.”

China’s new “social credit system” bans citizens from key social services like public transportation if they lose too many points behaving in a way disapproved by the Communist Party. China has begun exporting this system, along with its surveillance technology, to countries in the Western Hemisphere like Venezuela, Ecuador, and Bolivia.

See “Totalitarianism: China will keep ‘social credit’ score on each citizen for reward/punishment

Democratic 2020 presidential candidates have posited a point system like China’s “social credit” for evaluating good citizenship. Andrew Yang calls his “modern time banking”. He said on his website: “Volunteer activity and community engagement would be tracked by an app and seeded, initially, by the government. After that, local administrators would oversee the program.”

Created in 2011 to protect Americans from economic malfeasance in the aftermath of the 2008 economic crisis, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) supposedly is responsible for consumer protection in the financial sector. Designed by Sen. Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren (D-MA), CFPB’s jurisdiction is vast in scope, including banks, credit unions, securities firms, payday lenders, mortgage-servicing operations, foreclosure relief services, debt collectors and other financial companies.

Though an agency of the executive branch of the federal government, CFPB does not answer to the President, making it unaccountable to anyone but its director, 45-year-old Kathy Kraninger — a Republican and a Trump administration appointee. The President of the United States has only limited oversight over CFPB through a narrow list of reasons to remove a director.

CFPB has faced repeated accusations of abuse of power, particularly under its founding director Richard Cordray, an Obama appointee. In perhaps the most absurd example of overreach, the CFPB attempted in 2015 to punish a land development company for not maintaining roads in Tennessee at the standard the Bureau deemed appropriate.

The constitutionality of giving an unelected body such as the CFPB the power to impose its demands on private individuals and corporations has been the subject of extensive debate and unsuccessful lawsuits. Last October, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a challenge to the constitutionality of the CFPB.

On the same day as the House Democrats’ defeat of the free speech-protecting amendment, Elizabeth Warren launched a campaign against “disinformation,” a word the Chinese Communist Party often uses to censor speech. She tweeted:

Anyone who seeks to challenge and defeat Donald Trump must be prepared to take on the full array of disinformation that foreign actors and people in and around his campaign will use to divide Democrats, suppress Democratic votes, and erode the standing of the Democratic nominee. Campaigns and tech companies can take a number of steps to slow the spread of misinformation right now. And as president, I’ll take a series of actions to further address the spread of disinformation.

Warren also vowed that “when” elected President, she would not only overturn everything President Trump has achieved, she would hunt down and punish Trump administration officials and functionaries.

Virginia anti-gun rights Gov. Northam (D) declares state of emergency

Since last November 6’s election that gave control of Virginia’s entire state government to Democrats, led by pro-abort Gov. Ralph Northam (D), Democrats have been on a tear to impose gun control. See:

In response is a massive backlash by Virginia gun owners:

  • Local officials have issued pro-Second Amendment statements vowing to protect citizens’ gun rights against state authorities.
  • Cities and counties are forming militias and sanctuaries (see “Virginians are forming sanctuaries and militias against the anticipated gun grab“). As of  January 14, 2020, 130 counties and cities have passed sanctuary measures.
  • Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), a grassroots gun-rights organization, called for a rally next Monday, January 20, at the state capitol in Richmond, to lobby VA legislators not to vote away Virginians’ Second Amendment-guaranteed gun rights. VCDL President Phillip Van Cleave told Liberty Nation “the state is green with sanctuaries” and that he expects a massive turnout.

Monday, January 20, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day — a day known as “Lobby day” in Virginia politics as advocates for a number of causes use the holiday to try and buttonhole lawmakers. On that day, pro-gun and gun-control advocates would hold rallies. Jeff Katz, the host of a popular radio show on WRVA, said thousands of citizens are expected at the gun-rights rally next Monday because “People are outraged. This is the tipping point.”

Democrat Ralph Northam had men in black face and a KKK hood in his 1984 medical school yearbook.

Reacting to the planned rally, Governor Northam declared a state of emergency banning guns and “weapons of all kinds” from the state capitol beginning tomorrow, January 17, through next Tuesday, January 21.

The Associated Press reports that on Jan. 15, 2020, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency over threats of “armed militia groups storming our Capitol” ahead of a gun-rights rally next Monday. The emergency order will ban weapons of all kinds, including firearms, helmets and shields, from the Capitol grounds starting Friday and continuing through Tuesday.

Northam said the emergency order was necessary to protect public safety because of potential violence from out-of-state groups at the Monday rally. Claiming that “law enforcement agencies” consider the rally to pose “credible, serious threats,” Northam said some of the rhetoric used by groups planning to attend Monday’s rally is similar to what was said in the lead-up to last year’s so-called “white nationalist” rally in Charlottesville, VA, and that “We will not allow that mayhem and violence to happen here.”

Virginia Republicans, who did not even field candidates in many precincts in last November’s election, thereby ceding victory to the Democrats, were mixed in their response:

  • VA House Minority Leader Del. Todd Gilbert lamented that “there are legitimate concerns of a few bad actors hijacking the rally.”
  • But Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Jack Wilson condemned Northam’s declaration in a statement: “Northam and the rest of the Virginia Democrats have made their session goal crystal clear: a disarmed, vulnerable, and subservient citizenry.”

Northam’s emergency announcement comes days after Democratic leaders used a special rules committee to ban guns inside the Capitol and a legislative office building. That ban did not include Capitol grounds, which are under the governor’s control.

InfoWars has an audio recording of an unnamed Virginia State police officer saying that Barack Obama is orchestrating (“running”) Northam’s state of emergency, and that “there are people in high places in [VA] government” who are “told to do…ignore Trump, pipe down, and the people are just scared and just frustrated.”

On the Todd Starnes radio show, Liberty University president, Jerry Falwell Jr. vows he will “call for civil disobedience if the Democrats go through with this [state of emergency]. You don’t mess with people’s guns in this part of the state. They [Democrats] don’t know what they’ve gotten into and they’re going to find out the hard way, I’m afraid.”

Why is the United Nations hiring a military disarmament officer for New York?

Did you know that the United Nations (UN) has a Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Resource Centre?

According to the Center’s website:

DDR stands for disarmament, demobilization and reintegration. The objective of the DDR process is to contribute to security and stability in post-conflict environments so that recovery and development can begin. The DDR of ex-combatants is a complex process, with political, military, security, humanitarian and socio-economic dimensions. It aims to deal with the post-conflict security problem that arises when ex-combatants are left without livelihoods or support networks, other than their former comrades, during the vital transition period from conflict to peace and development. Through a process of removing weapons from the hands of combatants, taking the combatants out of military structures and helping them to integrate socially and economically into society, DDR seeks to support male and female ex-combatants and men, boys, women and girls associated with armed forces and groups, so that they can become active participants in the peace process….

All those who are found to be members of an armed force or group (to be included in the DDR programme), whether they were involved in active combat or in support roles (such as cooks, porters, messengers, administrators, sex slaves and ‘war wives’), shall be considered part of the armed force or group and therefore shall be included in the DDR programme….

Disarmament is the collection, documentation, control and disposal of small arms, ammunition, explosives and light and heavy weapons of combatants and often also of the civilian population. Disarmament also includes the development of responsible arms management programmes.

Although the United Nations is headquartered on international territory in New York City, the UN has no jurisdiction over the city.

This is doubly ensured by the fact that not only did President Trump not ratify the gun control UN Arms Trade Treaty signed by Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry, April Trump officially withdrew the United States from the treaty last April.

So why, then, is the UN advertising to hire an English-speaking Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration officer who would be assigned to the UN’s Department of Peace Operations and stationed in the city of New York?

On December 26, 2019, the UN posted this job opening on its “Careers” website (also archived here):

Job Opening

Posting Title: DISARMAMENT, DEMOBILIZATION AND REINTEGRATION OFFICER, P4

Job Code Title: DISARMAMENT, DEMOBILIZATION AND REINTEGRATION OFFICER

Department/Office: Department of Peace Operations

Duty Station: NEW YORK

Posting Period: 26 December 2019 – 08 February 2020

Job Opening Number: 19-Security Institutions-DPO-127453-R-New York (R)

The responsibilities of the Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Officer include:

  • Acts as a Focal Point for Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) components for two to three missions, responsible for planning, support to implementation and evaluation;
  • Participates in DPO and Integrated Task Force planning meetings for the establishment of a new peacekeeping mission with a potential DDR component;
  • Provides Headquarters support in planning the civilian and military logistics support for DDR

The “work experience” of this Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Officer must include “Seven years of relevant experience in disarmament affairs, political analysis or in national military or paramilitary service, preferably related to the design, implementation or review of DDR.

What does the United Nations know that the American citizen doesn’t?

New Zealand gun buyback a massive failure

On March 14, 2019, New Zealand had its deadliest mass shootings in modern history when 50 people were shot to death and another 50 injured in two mosques in Christchurch. The shootings bear all the marks of being a false flag. See:

False flag or not, the New Zealand government didn’t let the crisis go to waste.

As DCG explained, New Zealand’s weapons legislation was considered more relaxed than most Western countries outside of the USA. Gun owners do need a license but they aren’t required to register their guns — unlike in neighboring Australia where the rate of gun ownership is one for every 8 people, compared with New Zealand’s one gun for every three people.

According to official police figures, nearly 7,000 New Zealanders were legally allowed to own semi-automatic weapons. Two days after the shootings, however, New Zealand’s left-wing Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern declared that “our gun laws will change” and that several “in principle decisions” on gun control had already been made by her Cabinet ministers.

Six days after the mosque shootings, Arden announed a ban on the “military style” weapons used in the attacks. Less than a month later, a law prohibiting ownership of most semiautomatic weapons passed New Zealand’s parliament by 119 votes to one.

Even before the ban, compliant New Zealanders voluntarily disarmed themselves by surrendering their legally-owned semiautomatic firearms ahead of gun reforms — to PM Ardern’s praise and approval. (See “False flags work: New Zealand sheeple voluntarily surrender their guns after mosque shootings”)

But sheeple New Zealanders apparently are a small number.

Writing for The Federalist Papers on Dec. 22, 2019, Carmine Sabine reports that despite PM Ardern’s gun confiscation program (“We have moved to stop the sale, and now we’ve moved to stop the ongoing circulation of these weapons”), New Zealand’s Council of Licensed Firearms Owners (COLFO) said Wellington’s gun confiscation scheme is an “unmitigated failure.” COLFO secretary Nicole McKee said the gun buyback program “lacked fair and reasonable compensation for legally purchased items.”

Note: Founded in 1996 “to combat firearms-related disinformation,” the Council of Licensed Firearms Owners represents the interests of firearms owners and is the largest voluntary shooting-related organization in New Zealand.

According to the Washington Post, Wellington managed to obtain 47,000 of the banned “assault rifles” and around 2,000 were modified to fit within the law. But at least two-thirds of the now illegal “assault rifles” are still in their owners’ hands.

Police Minister Stuart Nash disagrees. Nash told New Zealand’s 1News he believes the program was successful in buying back the majority of the firearms: “There’s been 580 collection events, there’s 60 in the last week alone, there’s 52,000 guns that have been taken out of our community… I think our community is safer for it…. I think we’ve got the vast majority of these guns in.

Federalist Papers‘ Sabine points out: “the fact is they did not get every gun. They cannot even agree on what percentage they got.”

‘Blue’ Virginia State Senate bill to confiscate ‘assault firearms’

Virginia was considered a “swing” state in presidential elections, but the state became a solid “blue” on November 6, 2019.

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 legislature 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.

Elections have consequences, and we are witnesses to the dire consequences of Virginia turning “blue”.

To begin, on election night, 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. He declared his plan to reintroduce a package of gun control laws during the next legislative session. See “Elections have consequences: ‘Blue’ Virginia goes whole hog for gun control”.

Northam is joined by the State Senate.

On November 21, 2019, Virginia State Senator Louise Lucas (D) introduced a bill, SB 64: Paramilitary activities; penalty, which violates the U.S. Constitution’s First (“the right of the people peaceably to assemble”) and Second Amendments (“the right of the people to keep and bear Arms”). In the name of banning “paramilitary activities,” SB 64 criminalizes:

  1. Instruction and training in using firearms.
  2. Instruction and training in any “technique capable of causing injury or death to persons“, which can be construed to mean women’s self-defense, boxing, fencing, and the martial arts.
  3. Assembling with others to target shoot in a gun range.
  4. Assembling with others to perform “technique capable of causing injury or death to persons“, which can be construed to mean being in a boxing or martial arts studio.
  5. Marching or parading while carrying a firearm.

See “‘Blue’ Virginia senate bill to ban firearm and martial arts instruction”.

There is also another noxious bill in the Virginia State Senate which will outright confiscate “assault firearms” and “certain firearm magazines”. The bill, SB 16, was introduced by 79-year-old pro-abort State Senator Dick Saslaw (D) on November 18, 2019.

Below are the pertinent sections of SB 16:

  • Under SB 16 § 18.2-308.2:1 “Prohibiting the selling, etc., of firearms to certain persons,” is sub-section B. 1., which says: “no dealer shall sell, rent, trade, or transfer from his inventory any assault firearm to any person”.
  • A “dealer” is defined as “any person licensed as a dealer pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 921 et seq.” and specifies that “any dealer who willfully and intentionally sells, rents, trades or transfers a firearm in violation of this section shall be guilty of a Class 6 felony.”
  • Furthermore, SB 16’s § 18.2-308.8 also criminalizes the import, sale, transfer, manufacture, purchase, possession, or transport of an “assault firearm,” punishable as a Class 6 felony.
  • § 18.2-308.9 criminalizes the import, sale, barter, or transfer of “certain firearm magazines” that are “designed to hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition,” punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor.

SB 16 § 18.2-308.8 defines “assault firearm” as:

1. A semi-automatic center-fire rifle that expels single or multiple projectiles by action of an explosion of a combustible material with a fixed magazine capacity in excess of 10 rounds;

2. A semi-automatic center-fire rifle that expels single or multiple projectiles by action of an explosion of a combustible material that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine and has one of the following characteristics: (i) a folding or telescoping stock; (ii) a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the rifle; (iii) a thumbhole stock; (iv) a second handgrip or a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand; (v) a bayonet mount; (vi) a grenade launcher; (vii) a flare launcher; (viii) a silencer; (ix) a flash suppressor; (x) a muzzle brake; (xi) a muzzle compensator; (xii) a threaded barrel capable of accepting (a) a silencer, (b) a flash suppressor, (c) a muzzle brake, or (d) a muzzle compensator; or (xiii) any characteristic of like kind as enumerated in clauses (i) through (xii);

“Assault firearm” includes any part or combination of parts designed or intended to convert, modify, or otherwise alter a firearm into an assault firearm, or any combination of parts that may be readily assembled into an assault firearm. “Assault firearm” does not include (i) a firearm that has been rendered permanently inoperable, (ii) an antique firearm as defined in § 18.2-308.2:2, or (iii) a curio or relic as defined in § 18.2-308.2:2.

Since SB 16 bans the possession of “assault firearms,” that means the “assault firearms” now owned by Virginians will be confiscated.

Exempt from SB 16 are, of course, the Virginia state government and law enforcement officers.

‘Blue’ Virginia senate bill to ban firearm and martial arts instruction

Virginia was considered a “swing” state in presidential elections, but the state became a solid “blue” on November 6, 2019.

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 legislature 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. On election night, he declared his plan to reintroduce a package of gun control laws during the next legislative session. See “Elections have consequences: ‘Blue’ Virginia goes whole hog for gun control”.

Northam is now joined by the State Senate.

On November 21, 2019, Virginia State Senator Louise Lucas (D) introduced a bill that seeks to ban “paramilitary activities” by criminalizing:

  1. Instruction and training in using firearms.
  2. Instruction and training in any “technique capable of causing injury or death to persons“, which can be construed to mean boxing, fencing, and the martial arts.
  3. Assembling with others to target shoot in a gun range.
  4. Assembling with others to perform “technique capable of causing injury or death to persons“, which can be construed to mean being in a boxing or martial arts studio.
  5. Marching or parading while carrying a firearm.

The bill is SB 64: Paramilitary activities; penalty. Here is the full text of SB 64 (I provided the bold in red):

SENATE BILL NO. 64
Offered January 8, 2020
Prefiled November 21, 2019
A BILL to amend and reenact § 18.2-433.2 of the Code of Virginia, relating to paramilitary activities; penalty.

———-
Patron– Lucas
———-
Referred to Committee for Courts of Justice
———-
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:

1. That § 18.2-433.2 of the Code of Virginia is amended and reenacted as follows:

§ 18.2-433.2. Paramilitary activity prohibited; penalty.

A person shall be is guilty of unlawful paramilitary activity, punishable as a Class 5 felony if he:

1. Teaches or demonstrates to any other person the use, application, or making of any firearm, explosive, or incendiary device, or technique capable of causing injury or death to persons, knowing or having reason to know or intending that such training will be employed for use in, or in furtherance of, a civil disorder; or

2. Assembles with one or more persons for the purpose of training with, practicing with, or being instructed in the use of any firearm, explosive, or incendiary device, or technique capable of causing injury or death to persons, intending to employ such training for use in, or in furtherance of, a civil disorder; or

3. Assembles with one or more persons with the intent of intimidating any person or group of persons by drilling, parading, or marching with any firearm, any explosive or incendiary device, or any components or combination thereof.

2. That the provisions of this act may result in a net increase in periods of imprisonment or commitment. Pursuant to § 30-19.1:4 of the Code of Virginia, the estimated amount of the necessary appropriation cannot be determined for periods of imprisonment in state adult correctional facilities; therefore, Chapter 854 of the Acts of Assembly of 2019 requires the Virginia Criminal Sentencing Commission to assign a minimum fiscal impact of $50,000. Pursuant to § 30-19.1:4 of the Code of Virginia, the estimated amount of the necessary appropriation cannot be determined for periods of commitment to the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice.

On November 6, Louise Lucas was reelected with 93.1% of the vote, with no opposition from Virginia’s Republican Party.

New Rasmussen Poll Predicts Violence Regardless of Trump Impeachment Outcome

 

The Daily Wire Sunday (Nov. 24) reported the results of a new Rasmussen poll that found a majority of likely voters believe violence will erupt regardless of how the impeachment of Present Trump plays out. A striking percentage of those polled believed that members the other political party “lack the traits to be considered fully human—they behave like animals.”  A smaller percentage thought members of the other political party were “downright evil.”

There is an old Chinese curse that goes something like this: 願你生活在有趣的時代 May you live in interesting times.

From DailyWire.com

By  Frank Camp

On Thursday, Rasmussen Reports released a survey showing that a majority of “likely voters” believe that removing the president from office via impeachment would “lead to violence.” Perhaps more shocking, a larger majority believe that anti-Trump individuals will “resort to violence.” The survey was conducted between November 18-19 on 1,000 “likely voters.”

Specifically, the survey asked respondents: “How concerned are you that President Trump’s impeachment and removal from office will lead to violence?” Rasmussen reports that 53% of respondents indicated that they are concerned. 24% are “very concerned.”

The survey also asked: “How concerned are you that those opposed to President Trump’s policies will resort to violence?” 59% of respondents indicated that they are concerned. 34% are “very concerned.”

Democrats don’t appear nearly as worried about opposition violence.

“While 40% of Democrats are very concerned that those opposed to Trump’s policies will resort to violence, just 18% feel that way about his supporters if the president is removed from office,” according to Rasmussen. When asked about the likelihood of a new “civil war” occurring within “the next five years,” 31% of respondents said that such a scenario is likely. 9% said it was “very likely.”

Awareness of political aggression and politically-motivated violence seems to have moved to the forefront of America’s collective consciousness.

According to a Pew Research survey conducted in April and May, 85% of respondents believe that the “nature of political debate … has become more negative in recent years.”

An October 2018 survey conducted by McLaughlin & Associates on “800 full-time undergraduates” found that a significant number of students believe that violence is justified as a preventative measure against “hate speech.”

According to The Wall Street Journal, the survey asked students if they agreed or disagreed with the following statement: “If someone is using hate speech or making racially charged comments, physical violence can be justified to prevent this person from espousing their hateful views.” 33% said that they “agree” with the statement.

In early-October, Nathan Kalmoe, assistant professor of political communication at Louisiana State University, tweeted out some troubling information from a YouGov survey:

“In a 2019 YouGov survey w/ @LilyMasonPhD, 70% of Reps & 56% of Dems saw the other party as “a serious threat to the United States & its people.”

55% of Reps & 44% of Dems said the other party is “not just worse for politics—they are downright evil.” 34% of Reps & 27% of Dems said the other party “lack the traits to be considered fully human—they behave like animals.”

A small but disturbing percentage of respondents indicated favorability toward “political violence,” according to Kalmoe. 55% of Reps & 44% of Dems said the other party is “not just worse for politics—they are downright evil.”

34% of Reps & 27% of Dems said the other party “lack the traits to be considered fully human—they behave like animals.”

We also asked several questions about attitudes toward political violence. Here’s one. Other items asked about threatening leaders & citizens, & support for violence if your party loses in 2020. You can see most (but not all) people rejected partisan violence today.

The survey asked: “How much do you feel it is justified for [own party] to use violence in advancing their political goals these days?”

While a strong 87.3% of respondents said “not at all,” 5.2% said “a moderate amount,” 4.7% said “a little,” 1.5% said “a great deal,” and 1.3% said “a lot.”

That means that out of all respondents, approximately 12.7% were at least a little bit comfortable with the idea of using violence as a tool of political power.
