Vote for the Wall!

 

A new “caravan” of hundreds of Hondurans are heading toward the U.S.-Mexico border.

TV footage yesterday showed 600-800 people in the violent city of San Pedro Sula, Honduras, huddled together and waving Honduran flags as they began a journey that will likely take weeks or even months to reach the U.S.-Mexico border. (Reuters)

Notwithstanding the new “caravan” of invaders, the news this morning from the alphabet Hate-America TV networks is that a new national poll conducted by Connecticut’s Quinnipiac University found that:

  • A majority of American voters (55% vs. 43%) are opposed to a wall on the Mexican border, and reject every argument for the Wall.
  • An even larger majority (63% vs. 30%) favor a Democratic proposal to reopen parts of the federal government that do not involve border security while negotiating funding for the Wall.

Of course, this is the same Quinnipiac University polling that, in March 2014, claimed Fauxcahontas Elizabeth Warren, 69, to be the “hottest” U.S. politician whom Americans rated the most favorable. Hillary Clinton came in second. (See DCG’s post, “Sen. Elizabeth Warren is ‘hottest’ U.S. politicians: poll“.)

Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is calling on Americans to vote for the Wall:

  • Call 1-800-344-8082
  • Press 1, to vote for the Wall.

Go Vote!!!

Meanwhile, independent journalist Laura Loomer exposed “no border wall” Demonrat House Speaker  Nancy Pelosi’s utter hypocrisy.

Gateway Pundit reports that yesterday, Loomer brought a group of illegal immigrants from Guatemala and Mexico to Pelosi’s mansion in Napa Valley, CA, and set up a “sanctuary camp” on the lawn, with photos of Americans — including Kate Steinle — who were killed by illegal aliens.

Police were called, and evicted, i.e., deported, the group of illegals.

The next destination of Loomer and the “caravan” of illegals is the home of new California governor Gavin Newsom. LOL

Virginia governor proposes radical gun control measure that could end up with confiscation

 

Make no mistake about this gun grab: This demoRAT governor is leading the fight to take away your guns in Virginia.

From Fox News: The plan to ban the sale and possession of certain kinds of firearms proposed by Virginia governor Ralph Northam (D.) could affect millions of gun owners, an industry group said on Friday.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), which represents gun manufacturers and dealers, said the vague description of the legislation released by Northam on Jan. 4 would apply to most firearms currently on sale in the commonwealth.

The legislative proposals being discussed would put most firearms beyond the reach of law-abiding Virginians who choose the firearms of their choice to protect themselves, hunt, and practice recreational target shooting,” said Lawrence G. Keane, the group’s general counsel. “That could potentially impact the availability of tens of millions of firearms.”

While short on details, Northam’s announcement said part of the proposed gun-control package would ban the “sale, purchase, possession, and transport” of undefined “assault firearms” including “any firearm that is equipped with a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition.” Since the vast majority of semiautomatic handguns and rifles in the state are sold standard with magazines capable of holding 10 or more rounds, it appears the proposed ban would affect most firearms on sale in Virginia.

Additionally, the announcement of the ban did not include mention of any grandfathering to allow what NSSF estimated would be millions of Virginians who already own such firearms to legally keep them.

Click for more from The Washington Free Beacon.

This is a straight-up gun confiscation proposal. Stephen Gutowski from Free Beacon details more about this proposal on Twitter (from Twitchy):

“Virginia Democrats don’t just want to ban future sales of “assault firearms” as a few states have done, they want to outright ban possession which means confiscation. And their vauge definition of “assault firearms” applies to most currently sold in VA.”

“The only defining characteristic they’ve released thus far is any firearm “equipped” with a magazine that holds 10 or more rounds. That’s nearly every semi-automatic handgun and rifle sold in the state. The vast majority come standard with magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.”

The governor’s office refused to return my calls or answer my questions on the proposed ban so there’s no more details on what the actual legislation will look like or how Democrats would enforce such a law.”

“If the legislation matches the governor’s announcement, which isn’t a guarantee given how vauge and poorly written the announcement is, the proposal would be by far the most radical gun ban in the country. No other state has attempted this kind of confiscation on this scale.”

Remember this when demoRATs claim they aren’t coming for your guns…

Wait until you hear the details in this bill: Oregon proposal would require gun owners to obtain permits

 

As reported by Oregon Live: A proposal by two Oregon lawmakers to require permits for all gun owners is generating buzz online and among Republicans at the Capitol, even before it’s scheduled to be introduced at the Legislature on Monday.

It’s the brainchild of student activists connected to the movement that grew out of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, where a shooter killed 17 people nearly a year ago, according to the bill. Sen. Rob Wagner, D-Tualatin, and Rep. Andrea Salinas, D-Lake Oswego, are sponsoring it.

Wagner said the bill grew out of a meeting he and Salinas had last year with roughly 300 Oregon students following the Florida shooting. “Any opportunity for conversation around these controversial topics is really important,” Wagner said. “It’s a really important message that we listen to students … about what it’s like to go to school right now.”

The sweeping legislation would also require people to undergo background checks before purchasing or sharing ammunition and would limit ammunition purchases to 20 rounds within a 30-day period, although people could purchase and use unlimited ammunition at shooting ranges. It would ban magazines that hold more than five rounds of ammunition.

Additionally, Senate Bill 501 would require people to securely store their guns and report the loss or theft of a firearm to law enforcement within 24 hours.

If lawmakers pass the proposal, people who ignore it could face severe penalties. For example, anyone who possessed a firearm without a permit could be fine up to $6,250 and sentenced to as much as 364 days in jail.

It’s one of 11 bills dealing with firearms that are scheduled to be introduced on Monday, when lawmakers and Gov. Kate Brown return to Salem to be sworn in for their new terms. The Legislative session begins Jan. 22. Not all of the bills would regulate guns. For example, House Bill 2287 would allow school districts to allow firearm safety courses on school property.

In a press release on Friday, Rep. Bill Post, a Republican from Keizer, said the ammunition purchase limit would make it difficult for gun owners to become proficient and should worry duck hunters. Post also said he was worried the bill’s ban on magazines to hold more than five rounds of ammunition would mean “your old six-shot revolver would be required to be turned in or destroyed.”

However, the bill exempts .22-caliber revolvers and any lever-action revolver.

A separate bill is also being introduced that would require gun owners to securely store their weapons with locks and make it easier for shooting victims to sue for damages if the gun owner failed to secure the weapon, report the loss or theft of the gun in a timely manner or supervise a child using the gun.

The proposal is named after the two people killed in the 2012 Clackamas Town Center shooting and their relatives are working to pass it.

‘No god but Allah’ Saudi sculpture erected in World Trade Center

 

According to the previously classified 28 pages of the Congressional report on 9/11, Saudi Arabia was complicit in the 9/11 attack on America.

See “Congress releases classified 28 pages of 9/11 Report: It’s Saudi Arabia

So it is nothing less than a slap in the face of Americans that a sculpture bearing the emerald Saudi flag with a sword and the Arabic inscription, “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet,” was recently erected on the World Trade Center grounds, a stone’s throw away from the 9/11 memorial.

Davis Richardson reports for Observer, January 9, 2019, that the 9-foot-tall sculpture, shaped to resemble a piece of candy, celebrates Saudi Arabia’s place in the G20 Summit. It was created by French sculptor Laurence Jenkell in 2011 as part of the larger “Candy Nations” installation depicting G20 countries as sugary delights, and has since been featured in over 25 countries. All 20 sculptures are currently on display outside the Oculus shopping center.

The installation was curated and installed by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. In a December press release announcing the exhibit, the Port Authority said:

In its continuing efforts to transform the World Trade Center site into a dynamic space in Lower Manhattan, the Port Authority announced that beginning today it will showcase famous candy sculptures around the World Trade Center campus crafted by renowned French artist Laurence Jenkell. Each of the sculptures features flags from countries in the G20 summit, and the art work was commissioned by companies and organizations including the Chanel Foundation, the International Olympic Committee and Coca-Cola.

Sculptor Jenkell told Observer:

“I first created flag candy sculptures to celebrate mankind on an international level and pay tribute to People of the entire world. Given the unique and justified sensitivities surrounding the World Trade Center, it came to my mind to propose to remove the sculpture showcasing the flag of Saudi Arabia, or relocate it to a less sensitive location. But there is no way I can do such a thing as the flag of Saudi Arabia is entirely part of the G20 just like any other candy flag of this Candy Nations show.”

Observer points out:

Although the installation was originally created in 2011 to convey “an optimistic message of unity beneath external differences,” its placement at the World Trade Center raises questions given longstanding accusations directed toward Saudi Arabia in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks. In 2003, hundreds of families affected by the 9/11 terror attacks sued the Kingdom over its alleged involvement in harboring terrorism—given that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi. Last March, a U.S. federal judge rejected Saudi Arabia’s motion to drop the charges.

Libtard Bill Maher targeted in billboard as show returns to HBO

 

From Hollywood Reporter: Bill Maher on Sunday was attacked on a giant billboard that accuses him of not being “real” or “politically incorrect,” but a liberal apparatchik of prevailing wisdom ahead of the return of his HBO show, Real Time, on Friday.

The billboard, at the corner of La Cienega Boulevard and Holloway Drive in West Hollywood, is the work of a group of conservative street artists known as The Faction, who previously peppered the Hollywood Walk of Fame with dozens of faux Donald Trump stars to make up for the real one that the president’s detractors have destroyed on multiple occasions.

Maher is the former host of Politically Incorrect and currently hosts Real Time With Bill Maher. The billboard features his cartoonish image, the name of his show and the tagline: “The Whole Narrative and Nothing But.”

Before The Faction got a hold of it early Sunday morning before the sun rose, the billboard was a real ad for Maher’s show, but the artists replaced his image, swapped out the word “truth” for “narrative” and changed “HBO” with the letters “NPC,” which stands for “non-playable character.”

NPC was hijacked as a conservative meme a few months ago, used often to demean left-leaning, mainstream journalists. Gamers use it to refer to characters that are programmed for simple reactions and to give advice and directions, and not much more.

“For progressivism’s tragic devotees at HBO, sadly, the idea that they’re still speaking truth to power survives in the form of fan fiction like Real Time With Bill Maher,” a spokesman for The Faction told The Hollywood Reporter.

The Faction are a group of conservatives who will not reveal their identity.

“Traditional Masculinity” is Harmful, American Psychological Association Says

 

Well, it’s finally happened. Teaching a boy to be a man is now deemed harmful for the boy.

I’m not making this up. This assessment is not the ranting of a rabid libtard feminazi, but the considered opinion of the august organization, the American PsychologicalAssociation (APA).

The APA said it could be damaging to teach boys about “traditional masculinity.” In its recently released report titled, “APA Guidelines for the Psychological Practice with Boys and Men,” the APA said the “traditional masculinity philosophy not only is ‘harmful’ but also could lead to homophobia and sexual harassment.”

The U.S. News & World Report said the APA cited traditional masculinity as including elements of “anti-femininity, achievement, eschewal of the appearance of weakness, and adventure, risk and violence.”

Fox News this week quoted an APA press release stating, “The main thrust of the (APA’s) subsequent research is that traditional masculinity – marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression – is, on the whole, harmful.”

The Daily Caller wrote that the APA report held that “traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful and that socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage that echoes both inwardly and outwardly.”

“Traditional masculinity ideology has been shown to limit males’ psychological development, constrain their behavior, result in gender role strain and gender role conflict, and negatively influence mental health and physical health,” the 36-page report says, Fox reported.

Further, the report proposes that “masculine boys may put their energy toward disruptive behaviors such as homophobia, bullying and even sexual harassment rather than strive for academic excellence.”

The report suggests that psychologists relinquish any predisposition when treating boys, and offers tips on how to do that while also advising them to teach them how “power, privilege and sexism work both by conferring benefits to men and by trapping them in narrow roles.”.

Never before has the APA delivered guiding principles to aid psychologists to “specifically address issues with men and boys,” According to a U.S. News & World Report article.

Ronald F. Levant, Ed. D, a professor emeritus of psychology, told Fox, “Though men benefit from patriarchy, they are also impinged upon by patriarchy.”

The APA published statistics to support their research, “including that men are four times more likely than women to die of suicide worldwide, are ‘far more likely’ than women to be arrested and charged with intimate partner violence in the U.S., and commit about 90 percent of all homicides nationwide.”

Stephanie Pappas, writing in an APAP article said that, “[M]en still dominate professionally and politically: As of 2018, 95.2 percent of chief operating officers at Fortune 500 companies were men. According to a 2017 analysis by Fortune, in 16 of the top companies, 80 percent of all high-ranking executives were male. Meanwhile, the 115th Congress, which began in 2017, was 81 percent male,” the Daily Caller reported.
