Pancho Beto wants to force banks and credit card companies to stop enabling the sale of “weapons of war”

Fortunately this guy has no shot of becoming our president.

Pancho Beto was on a tweet storm yesterday:

“Credit cards have enabled many of America’s mass shootings in the last decade—and with Washington unwilling to act, they need to cut off the sales of weapons of war today.”

“Banks and credit card companies must: Refuse to take part in the sale of assault weapons. Stop processing transactions for gun sales online & at gun shows without background checks. Stop doing business with gun & ammo manufacturers who produce or sell assault weapons.

“If enough of us make our voices heard now, we will force banks and credit card companies to act. Add your name to this petition we’re sending Visa, Mastercard, and the big banks”

And these people call President Trump the fascist.

Pancho Beto wants mandatory buyback of “assault weapons” and gun registry

Fortunately, this guy has no chance whatsoever of becoming president.

Pancho Beto announced via Twitter on Friday his plan to end gun violence which includes the following:

More from his web site:

“Beto will work with Congress to create a nationwide gun licensing system that will ensure individuals seeking a gun undergo an assessment by law enforcement and a background check. Individuals must be 21 years old to receive a license, will be required to complete a certified gun safety training, and will need to renew their licenses every five years.

Individuals will also be required to register their guns through a registry and all new handguns will be microstamped. In recognition of the country’s long hunting tradition, those under 21 with hunting licenses will be able to lawfully possess firearms for hunting. States will have the flexibility to administer their own licensing systems, allowing them to set higher standards. Where a state does not have a system in place, the federal government will administer the system.

Weapons of war belong on the battlefield, not in our communities or on our streets. Beto is calling for a mandatory buyback program for assault weapons and a voluntary buyback program for handguns. To create a funding stream for buybacks, Beto will increase the excise tax on gun manufacturers and fines imposed on gun traffickers, and will enable ATF to purchase any banned assault weapons presented to the agency. Individuals who fail to participate in the mandatory buyback of assault weapons will be fined.

After Philadelphia Police shootout, demorats call for more gun control. How about stricter penalties for prohibited possessors and better enforcement?

Facts are a stubborn thing for progressives. Always have been, always will be.

Demorats starting demanding more gun control after the shootout with Philadelphia Police on Wednesday. In some cases, demorats even called for more gun control while the situation was unfolding.

Demorat presidential candidates Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Beto O’Rourke and Amy Klobuchar took to Twitter to express their outrage pander to voters:

Kamala Harris: “We can’t sit around waiting for others to take action on gun violence. Doing nothing is not an option.”

Pancho Beto: “Thinking of Philadelphia, and everyone impacted by this gun violence epidemic we need to end.”

Amy Klobuchar: “Another tragic shooting. This time in Philadelphia. We have to end this scourge of gun violence.”

Philadelphia shooter & prohibited possessor/ABC 7 News photo

Turns out the shooter was a violent, drug-dealing convicted felon, meaning he wasn’t legally allowed to possess firearms. But he’s a criminal, so did you really expect him to follow the law?

According to NBC Philadelphia, the 36-year-old shooter has a lengthy criminal record that included firearms charges. Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said that “he never should have been on the streets.”

And therein lies the problem with demanding more gun control laws while not adequately punishing prohibited possessors.

A report published by the US Sentencing Commission on June 27, 2019 entitled, “Recidivism Among Federal Firearms Offenders” shows that the problem lies in the criminal justice system and progressives’ demand for “criminal justice reform.”

Key findings from their report:

The 3,446 firearms offenders analyzed in this report represent 13.8 percent of the 25,000 offenders in this study who were released in calendar year 2005.

Firearms offenders recidivated at a higher rate than non-firearms offenders. Over two-thirds (68.1%) of firearms offenders were rearrested for a new crime during the eight-year follow-up period compared to less than half of non-firearms offenders (46.3%).

Firearms offenders recidivated more quickly than non-firearms offenders. Of the firearms offenders who recidivated, the median time from release to the first recidivism event was 17 months. Comparatively, the median time from release to the first recidivism event for non-firearms offenders was 22 months.

A greater percentage of firearms offenders were rearrested for serious crimes than non-firearms offenders.

Firearms offenders recidivated at a higher rate than non-firearms offenders in every age group at the time of release from custody.

Read the whole report here.

Maybe, just maybe, we could take a look at punishing firearm offenders more severely.

Also, could we enforce the current gun laws? See the following examples:

“145,000 people in NC whose criminal records should have kept them from buying a gun weren’t even added to the background check database till Dec 2018. And there’s no way to know how many of them bought guns.”

“Out of 112,000 fraudulent 4473s only 12 were prosecuted in 2017.”

“Gun laws that cost millions had little effect because they weren’t enforced

I know these facts will mean absolutely nothing to demorats. Gun grabbers prefer to operate with their emotions.

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.

You go first, de Blasio: “US needs a program for actual redistribution of wealth”

When you gonna start redistributing some of YOUR $1.5 MILLION net worth, Comrade? Because last time I looked, you and your commie wife gave only $350 to charity in 2017. Typical taxpayer, money-grabbing demorat…

As reported by NY Post: While exploring a run for president in Nevada, Mayor Bill de Blasio endorsed a committee to study reparations for descendants of slaves and then went further — saying that the country needs “a program of actual redistribution” of wealth.

A progressive activist asked the mayor his position on reparations at an event in Las Vegas Friday following the endorsement of the compensation plan by other presidential contenders like Elizabeth Warren.

“There’s no question that the issue of reparations has to be taken seriously,” said de Blasio, whose Vegas area barnstorming continues today, stating a clear, public position on the topic for the first time.

“I do believe the way to do it is to form a very public commission and say, ‘What is the way to address this problem once and for all?’”

But, he added, there needs to be a “bigger discussion about income inequality and oppression of other groups including Latinos, Native Americans, Asian and women,” he said at the event organized by the immigrant advocacy group Make the Road.

“I think we’re going to need something bigger even in a way, broader even in a way, then some of the ideas that have been put out there,” he said to the approximately 35 attendees.

“I think a program of actual redistribution which includes much heavier taxes on the wealthy,” he said. “The ultimate resolution has to be profoundly economic,” de Blasio said.

The redistribution comment went further than the message de Blasio has been honing since his state of the city speech in January—that “there’s plenty of money in this city, it’s just in the wrong hands.” During his out-of-city jaunts to early primary states de Blasio has swapped the word “city” for “world” and “country.”

His answer didn’t satisfy the activist who asked the question. “He did what a lot of candidates do, they, ‘All lives matter’ it. They try to broaden reparations for everyone,” Leslie Turner, 37, told The Post after the event.

“It’s actually ok to say, ‘This is actually for black people. We shouldn’t shy away from talking about what reparations specifically for black people could look like,” Turner said.

Other Democratic presidential candidates including Beto O’Rourke and Cory Booker support studying the matter.

Prominent Democrats dress up as the Devil

In an email, a reader of FOTM castigated me for referring to Democrats as “Demonrats” because, he claims, my doing so undermines my “credibility”.

Credibility? What a joke, coming from this reader who, several months ago, in a bid to elicit my sympathy, claimed to be “dying” from brain cancer, but no doctor had actually diagnosed him as such.

I don’t use words lightly. Democrats, by their stance on abortion — which, in the state of New York, is now legal abortion up to the moment of birth — and other issues, in fact are demonic.

This post — on the curious penchant of prominent Democrats to dress themselves up as the Devil — provides yet another example of why I call them Demonrats.

From Wikipedia:

August Belmont Sr. (December 8, 1813 – November 24, 1890) was a German Jewish-American politician, financier, foreign diplomat, and party chairman of the Democratic National Committee during the 1860s, and later a horse-breeder and racehorse owner….

Belmont was born with the name Isaac Belmont to a Jewish family in Alzey, in the Grand Duchy of Hesse, in Germany on December 8, 1813….

He attended The Philanthropin, a Jewish school, until he began his first job as an apprentice to the Rothschild banking firm in Frankfurt….

Belmont threw lavish balls and dinner parties, receiving mixed reviews from New York’s high society. He was an avid sportsman, and the famed Belmont Stakes thoroughbred horse race is named in his honor.

On August 11, 1848, a grand social event of New York’s high society — the Fancy Dress Ball — took place in Saratoga Springs, New York. The name reflects the presence of mineral springs in the area, which has made Saratoga a popular resort destination for over 200 years. Today, Saratoga Springs is ranked 10th in the list of the top 10 places to live in New York State for 2014, according to the national online real estate brokerage Movoto.

Back to the Fancy Dress Ball of 1848.

It was reported, admiringly, that one of the “richest” dresses in the Ball was that of August Belmont, who would be Chair of the Democratic National Committee. From the New York Herald, August 14, 1848, p. 2:

Mr. Auguste Belmont, agent of Messrs. Rothschilds, chose the character of Le Diable Boiteux. The costume was composed of the richest red and black velvet, decorated and trimmed with demons and fantastical figures. It was looked upon as one of the richest dresses in the room, and said to have cost two hundred dollars. The character was well sustained.

In 2019 dollars, $200 in 1848 is the equivalent of $6,250 today, according to Inflation Calculator.

Le Diable Boiteux (The Devil Upon Two Sticks) is a 1707 novel, set in Madrid, by French writer Alain-René Lesage about Asmodeus, the king of demons, whom  Renaissance Christians called the King of the Nine Hells. Asmodeus also is referred to as one of the seven princes of Hell.

That means August Belmont dressed himself as Asmodeus, a king of demons.

Below is a screenshot of the New York Herald article, pp. 1-2:

Fast forward 171 years to today.

Beto O’Rourke, 46, is one of the new darlings of the Democrat Party.

A former 3-term representative for Texas’s 16th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives, O’Rourke narrowly lost the 2018 Texas Senate race to Republican incumbent Ted Cruz.

On January 24, 2019, Mike Adams of Natural News reports that:

Celebrated left-wing political candidate Beto O’Rourke has been caught on video wearing a “Devil goat” costume complete with what appear to be horns or ears as part of a bizarre mask and a freakish one-piece costume. He sported this outfit while performing on stage, raising questions about his ties to Satan worship.

The media is now desperately trying to spin the emerging video as a comedy band gimmick, claiming the mask is a “sheep” mask, not the symbol of Baphomet, which is tied to Satanism and the occult.

Here’s a screenshot from the video of O’Rourke in the Baphomet costume:

The Baphomet was first drawn and popularized in 1854 by occultist Eliphas Lévi in his book, Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie (Dogmas and Rituals of High Magic) — a winged, horned, androgynous, humanoid goat with breasts and phallus. (See “The Devil is transgender”)

Levi called his image the Baphomet — “The Sabbatic Goat” and “The Goat of Mendes.” Lévi’s Baphomet is the source of the Rider-Waite Tarot image of the Devil. The Baphomet goat, together with the downward-pointed pentagram, was adopted as the official symbol (the Sigil of Baphomet) of the Church of Satan and continues to be used among Satanists. (Wikipedia)

And lest we forget, there’s also this rumored pic of Obama dressed as the Baphomet:

Now ask yourself this:

Why would anyone choose to dress him/herself up as the Devil?

Big heap no surprise: Elizabeth Warren plans to run for president in 2020

Her odds of winning: 1/1024.

From NY Post: Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday announced her intention to run for president in 2020 as a champion of middle-class Americans and a foe of big banks and Wall Street fat cats.

Warren, who said she was creating an exploratory committee that will allow her to raise funds and hire staffers, will be among a crowded field of Democrats taking a shot at the White House.

“America’s middle class is under attack,” Warren said in a four-minute, 30-second video posted to YouTube. “How did we get here? Billionaires and big corporations decided they wanted more of the pie. And they enlisted politicians to cut them a bigger slice.”

In the video, the 69-year-old former law professor lays out her vision of the future, while setting herself up as a foil to President Trump and members of his administration.

“I’ve spent my career getting to the bottom of why America’s promise works for some families, but others who work just as hard slip through the cracks into disaster,” she says. “What I’ve found is terrifying. These aren’t cracks that families are falling into, they’re traps.”

The Republican National Committee dismissed Warren’s candidacy, saying her “out of touch” agenda poses no threat to Trump. “With her lack of support from voters – including in her home state – on top of her phony claim to minority status, now that she is formally running Americans will see her for what she is: another extreme far-left obstructionist and a total fraud,” Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.

The president, who has announced that he will seek re-election in 2020, has trashed Warren in the past for her claims that she is partly Native American, referring to her as “Pocahontas.”

Warren in October released DNA testing results that showed there was “strong evidence” that she has Native American blood. The release was intended to quell questions about her heritage but prompted criticism from Native American leaders and left some supported puzzled why she would rekindle the controversy.

A number of Democrats are expected to announce presidential campaigns in the next few months, including former Vice President Joe Biden and Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.

Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who lost a Senate bid in November to GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, are also weighing getting in the race.

Jim Carrey calls President Trump a “melanoma,” rails against republicans

TDS-infected Jim Carrey…a sad and bitter “artist”

Someone needs to get a healthier hobby. Or up his meds.

From Hollywood Reporter: “Trump is a melanoma,” Jim Carrey said Sunday during a panel discussing his art and political activism.

The actor-turned-artist railed against President Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell and other Republican politicians during a conversation at Vulture Fest in Los Angeles, during which he also called his assistant mid-panel to post his latest political painting — a portrait of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as a turtle (“which unfortunately for him now is not protected,” Carrey said) with a blue wave crashing behind him.

Carrey called him “incredibly dangerous, a threat to homeland security. And now he has the nerve to come out a couple of days ago and ask for bipartisanship.” He added, “These are not people you can deal with. You cannot be bipartisan with a criminal. A rapist needs to be removed, not negotiated with. These people are raping our system, they’re destroying it right in front of us. …This corrupt Republican congress that was…These people have to be removed from our system because they’re bad for us. Trump is a melanoma, and anybody that covers for him, including Sarah Sanders, is putting makeup on it. It shows that there’s a deeper problem in this country, and that problem is greed.”

(FYI: Carrey is worth $150 million. Such a greedy man to hoard all that wealth.)

Other musings included the revelation that Carrey broke down after Aretha Franklin’s death: “The day Aretha Franklin died I cried that someone so beautiful and so incredibly conscious and someone who’s done so much to lift the spirit of people has to close her eyes on a world like this. It’s a fucking injustice. It shouldn’t happen. I can’t stand it. I can’t take it.”

Speaking out against the Christian right, Carrey added, “I think they’re going to find out once and for all that the Christian right has never been about morality, it’s been about holding on to power and using morality to do so.”

Of his desire for a Beto O’Rourke/Kamala Harris Presidential ticket, Carrey said: “I think she’s fantastic, I think he’s an incredible guy, and I would love to vote in this decade for someone that’s not the lesser of the evils.” (For the record, he thinks Hillary Clinton would be a good president, however, “I believe she knows what she’s doing but the fact that people are conflicted about her, whether it’s right or wrong, is a problem and will lose votes.”)

In addition to the one he posted, Carrey went through several of his other paintings, including one of Mike Pence (“It’s truly the face of insincerity”), one of Donald Trump crucifying Jesus (“I just thought of every…selfish word he said as another nail in the cross of Jesus”), a Halloween drawing of Donald Trump as a cyclops (“To me the right is a cyclops, it sees in [one dimension] — what can I see, what can I have?”), former EPA chief Scott Pruitt (“He’s a vampire and that’s all”), and Rudy Giuliani (“A guy that doesn’t have presence of mind enough to dye the bottom teeth. His mouth is the whole administration in a nutshell”).

He also discussed his painting of Colin Kaepernick that commended Nike for supporting the former pro football player. “I wanted to encourage an act of goodness,” Carrey explained, saying he didn’t necessarily mean to endorse Nike’s business practices. “We have to encourage goodness, that’s how we get more goodness.”

He continued, “The African-American community has incredible grace in the face of this cancerous hate. They’re unbelievable. I don’t know how they haven’t burned this country down.”

(Hey, BLM already tried to burn down Baltimore. How did that work for the citizens of that city?)
