Appeals court blocks DC's conceal-carry law on Second Amendment grounds

second amendment3
The Constitution prevails.
From Fox News: A federal appeals court on Tuesday struck down a District of Columbia gun-control measure that the court said is essentially an outright ban in violation of the Second Amendment.
D.C. requires gun owners to have a “good reason” to obtain a concealed carry permit. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit struck down the regulation as too restrictive in a 2-1 decisionThe Washington Post reported.
“The good-reason law is necessarily a total ban on most D.C. residents’ right to carry a gun in the face of ordinary self-defense needs,” Judge Thomas B. Griffith (appointed by George W. Bush) wrote, according to the paper.
“Bans on the ability of most citizens to exercise an enumerated right would have to flunk any judicial test.”
Judge Stephen F. Williams (appointed by Ronald Reagan) joined Griffith in the decision.
The decision deals another legal blow to efforts by city officials to rewrite gun regulations since the Supreme Court declared a Second Amendment right to gun ownership in a 2008 D.C. gun case, the paper reported.
John R. Lott, Jr. of the Crime Prevention Research Center called the decision huge.
Right now, there are about 124 concealed handgun permit holders in D.C., Lott told Fox News. “If D.C. were like the 42 right-to-carry states, they would have about 48,000 permits. Right now D.C. prevents the most vulnerable people, particularly poor blacks who live in high crime areas of D.C., from having any hope of getting a permit for protection.”
The lone dissenter, Judge Karen Henderson (appointed by George H.W. Bush), said the district’s regulation “passes muster” because of the city’s unique security challenges as the nation’s capital and because it does not affect the right to keep a firearm at home.
Gun rights groups and Republican attorneys general from more than a dozen states told the court that the District’s system is unconstitutional because the typical law-abiding citizen could not obtain a permit, the paper reported.
City officials could ask all the judges on the circuit to rule on the matter, if they elect to appeal the decision.

Revolt of the Deplorables: Clinton & Ryan heckled; Trump cheered

On September 10, 2016, her mask slipping, Hillary Clinton actually called millions of Americans, over whom she wants to rule as president, “a basket of deplorables” who are “irredeemable” racists, homophobes and jingoists because they deign to support her opponent, Donald Trump.
hillary-clinton-screams-why-arent-i-50-points-ahead
On October 7, 2016, an audio of Trump making lewd remarks of a married woman 11 years ago, was leaked to the media. Trump made those crude remarks in a supposedly private conversation with the weasel-faced Billy Bush, a correspondent for the trashy TV show, Access Hollywood. Coincidentally (or not), Billy Bush is the nephew of former president George H.W. Bush, who reportedly has said he will vote for Hillary Clinton.
The audio immediately was seized on by the MSM, who no longer even pretend to conceal their pro-Hillary stance. Never mind that their lord and savior, Barack Obama, had PUBLICLY talked about “eating p*ssy,” and their ball-busting mistress, Hillary Clinton, spews cruder and lewder obscenities to the faces of the Secret Service agents who risk their lives to protect her.

See “Obama, in a fake black accent, talked about ‘eating p*ssy’; Hillary spews obscenities at Secret Service agents

Being the eunuchs that they are, GOP elites almost soiled their pants. John McCain withdrew his endorsement of Trump, as the #NeverTrump RINOs bleat that, with only a month before the November 8 election, Trump must drop out of the presidential race.
Not being stupid, the Deplorables, aka the American people, see right through this faux scandal and the faux outrage of the MSM and RINOs. As an anonymous Facebook post says:

“We don’t care if the guy swears… or how many times he’s been married…or who he voted for, or what his income tax return shows. We want the problems fixed. Yes he’s an egomaniac, but we don’t care.[…]
We don’t care that Trump is crude, we don’t care that he has changed positions, we don’t care that he fights with Megyn Kelly, Rosie O’Donnell, and so many of the elected establishment. We don’t care that Rubio, Ryan, the Bushes, and so many other top old and new Republicans refuse to endorse him for their own selfish reasons, and we know what they are. […]
We’re sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic and Republican Party. […] Americans are no longer going to be fooled, and the movement is out to change the direction we’re taking. […] This may be our only chance to have a non-politician, despite his flaws, try and correct the mess, at least for 4 years. We must take the shot, because the consequences of putting Hillary Clinton in office are frightening.”

See “Why Trump supporters don’t care that he made a lewd remark about a married woman 11 years ago“.
Yesterday, (Saturday, Oct. 8), the Deplorables revolted and made their voices heard.
At his Fall Fest event in Elkhorn,Wisconsin, RINO House Speaker Paul Ryan kicked off his speech by making mention of the “elephant in the room,” and called Trump’s locker-room banter with Billy Bush “a troubling situation.”
The crowd of Deplorables responded by heckling Ryan with chants of “Trump!,” “God bless Trump,” and “See ya, Paul! Jackass!”. (Breitbart)

Also yesterday, while campaigning for Hillary in an early voting event in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Bill Clinton was heckled by protesters shouting,

“Bill Clinton is a rapist!”

In the midst of criticizing Trump’s position on global warming, Clinton was notably jarred when he was interrupted by two individuals in the audience, one of whom carried a Bill Clinton Rape poster.
As Clinton began a sentence saying, “No one can dispute the fact…,” a person in the audience shouts, “That you’re a rapist!,” followed by another yelling, “Bill Clinton is a rapist!”
This is the second time in 3 days that Bill Clinton has been heckled during a rally for Hillary. Earlier this week during a campaign event in Canton, Ohio, a woman interrupted the former president by shouting, “Bill Clinton is a rapist!”. The woman was holding a display also bearing those words. (InfoWars)

Meanwhile, a large and raucous crowd of Trump supporters rallied outside of Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan on Saturday afternoon. The crowd was so big that people spilled from the sidewalk into the street, with only a metal security barrier keeping them from the Fifth Avenue traffic.

Even the NYPD shouted their support:
trump-supporters-outside-trump-tower-10-8-2016
While in Bakersfield, California, at the Bakersfield Business Conference, thousands of people cheered for Trump to stay in the race.
Jim Stinson of PoliZette observes:

“The response from the [conference] attendees, mostly conservative voters, shows a potentially large disconnect between ordinary Americans and elites on the issue of Trump’s character revelations. Many in the media and political leaders have said Trump should leave the ticket after disclosure of lewd talk on a bus 11 years ago. […] But so far, the voters don’t seem moved.”

According to a Politico/Morning Consult poll conducted yesterday, a remarkable number of people had heard about the leaked audio of Trump’s lewd remarks. There is also an equally remarkable polarization:

  • Overall, 45% think Trump should not drop out of the presidential race, while 39% think he should.
  • 70% of Democrats say Trump should end his campaign, but just 12% of Republicans — and 13% of female Republicans — agree.

Agenda 21: Heroic Ann Bressington, Australian MP – Names the NWO Gang

It’s been an amazing year in the fight against the UN Agenda 21-Sustainable Development juggernaut.  As public awareness has grown through the efforts of citizen activists from both sides of the political spectrum, political parties and legislators are taking a stand.  You can find the  anti-Agenda 21 legislation here, 
They’re fighting it in Australia, too.  Member of Parliament, Ann Bressington, spells out the totalitarian plan chronologically and names the names of the perpetrators  quoting NWO boy, George H.W. Bush, ” There will be a profound reorientation of all human activity.”

In the face of the pushback by average citizens and legislators, the UN-USA Executive Director, Patrick Madden, posted an article in March, 2012 calling the people taking a stand against  UN Agenda 21 conspiracy theory wackos and called supporters of Agenda 21 “… we do need to be vocal and vigorous in defense of the UN to ensure the facts are set straight and our message is heard. You can do this by speaking at city council meetings or writing a Letter to the Editor and op-ed, specifically tailored to debunking the Agenda 21.” 
It’s going to be an uphill battle for the UN boys.  It’s hard to debunk a conspiracy when videos of United Nations strongman Maurice Strong, reveals himself as a conspirator in pushing the true agenda behind Agenda 21.

Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, coalition forces leader during Persian Gulf War, dies.

Sorry Folks a bit late on this.      ~Steve~
Published December 28, 2012
FoxNews.com
norman-schwarzkopf-300
Americans mourned a military legend after retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf died Thursday at age 78, leaving behind a legacy that most famously included driving Saddam Hussein’s forces out of Kuwait.
Schwarzkopf died, in Tampa, from complications from pneumonia. He was remembered not only for his impressive military record, but his intelligence, his modesty and his warmth and dedication to fellow servicemembers.
“His epitaph should read that he was a soldier who loved solders,” retired Gen. Bob Scales, who knew the late general, told Fox News.
Nicknamed “Stormin’ Norman,” Schwarzkopf went on after he retired to support various national causes and children’s charities while eschewing the spotlight and resisting efforts to draft him to run for political office.
He lived out a quiet retirement in Tampa, where he’d served his last military assignment and where an elementary school bearing his name is testament to his standing in the community.
Schwarzkopf capped an illustrious military career by commanding the U.S.-led international coalition that drove Hussein’s forces out of Kuwait in 1991 — but he’d managed to keep a low profile in the public debate over the second Gulf War against Iraq, saying at one point that he doubted victory would be as easy as the White House and the Pentagon predicted.
Former President H.W. Bush, who has been in an intensive care unit in Texas, called the general a “distinguished member of that Long Gray Line hailing from West Point.”
“General Norm Schwarzkopf, to me, epitomized the ‘duty, service, country’ creed that has defended our freedom and seen this great Nation through our most trying international crises. More than that, he was a good and decent man — and a dear friend,” Bush said.
President Obama described Schwarzkopf as an “American original.”
“From his decorated service in Vietnam to the historic liberation of Kuwait and his leadership of United States Central Command, General Schwarzkopf stood tall for the country and Army he loved,” Obama said in a statement.
Schwarzkopf was named commander in chief of U.S. Central Command at Tampa’s MacDill Air Force Base in 1988, overseeing the headquarters for U.S. military and security concerns in nearly two dozen countries stretching across the Middle East to Afghanistan and the rest of central Asia, plus Pakistan.
When Saddam invaded Kuwait two years later to punish it for allegedly stealing Iraqi oil reserves, Schwarzkopf commanded Operation Desert Storm, the coalition of some 30 countries organized by President George H.W. Bush that succeeded in driving the Iraqis out.
At the peak of his postwar national celebrity, Schwarzkopf — a self-proclaimed political independent — rejected suggestions that he run for office, and remained far more private than other generals, although he did serve briefly as a military commentator for NBC.
While focused primarily on charitable enterprises in his later years, he campaigned for President George W. Bush in 2000, but was ambivalent about the 2003 invasion of Iraq. In early 2003 he told The Washington Post that the outcome was an unknown: “What is postwar Iraq going to look like, with the Kurds and the Sunnis and the Shiites? That’s a huge question, to my mind. It really should be part of the overall campaign plan.”
Initially Schwarzkopf had endorsed the invasion, saying he was convinced that Secretary of State Colin Powell had given the United Nations powerful evidence of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. After that proved false, he said decisions to go to war should depend on what U.N. weapons inspectors found.
He seldom spoke up during the conflict, but in late 2004 he sharply criticized Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and the Pentagon for mistakes that included erroneous judgments about Iraq and inadequate training for Army reservists sent there.
“In the final analysis I think we are behind schedule. … I don’t think we counted on it turning into jihad (holy war),” he said in an NBC interview.
Schwarzkopf was born Aug. 24, 1934, in Trenton, N.J., where his father, Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf Jr., founder and commander of the New Jersey State Police, was then leading the investigation of the Lindbergh kidnap case. That investigation ended with the arrest and 1936 execution of German-born carpenter Richard Hauptmann for murdering famed aviator Charles Lindbergh’s infant son.

EB-5 and the Prostitution of America

For 20+ years, I had taught a course on Economic Development to undergrads and graduate students — why Third World countries are poor and how they can develop their economies and so catapult themselves to join the developed First World.

But developing an economy requires capital or money, and Third World countries, by definition, are underdeveloped and capital-poor. If a country’s people had the surplus capital to invest in factories and businesses, it wouldn’t be a Third World country to begin with.

So the standard economic development strategy is to devise ways to attract cash from countries that are developed — and rich — by offering them sweet deals so they will invest in the poor country. That capital is called Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).

Poor countries typically employ tax incentives (low or no taxes), low wages, and lax or no labor laws to attract FDI. The smarter Third World governments jealously guard their national sovereignty and autonomy to avoid being exploited by foreign capitalists and becoming dependent on FDI, to the detriment of their own national wellbeing. The smart ones insist that the foreign investors train domestic workers into skilled labor, anticipating that day in the future when the poor country becomes developed and no longer must bow to wealthy foreigners.

In all my years of studying, teaching, and writing on economic development, I have never come across a developed First World country so desperate for FDI as to prostitute itself.

But that is what the federal and state governments of the United States of America are doing.

Let me ask you:

  1. Is America a poor country and thus lacking in affluent citizens with money to invest in starting up businesses in America?
  2. Does our country have a dearth of entrepreneurs, investors, businessmen and women?
  3. As if we don’t already have an illegal immigrant problem, is the United States so sparsely populated that we must offer incentives for people around the world to immigrate here?

The answer to all three questions is clearly “No.”

Then why is it that, instead of persuading American businesses to stop “outsourcing” exporting jobs overseas, our government is prostituting America to attract foreigners to invest?

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) has a program called EB-5 which, in the name of “helping create jobs,” grants foreigners permanent U.S. residency in exchange for bringing in Foreign Direct Investment.

EB-5, the immigrant investor visa program, was created by the Immigration Act of 1990 in the Bush Sr. administration. Yes, the same George Herbert Walker “we need a New World Order” Bush:

EB-5 offers a green card for foreign nationals who invest at least $500,000, creating at least 10 jobs. The minimum amount of FDI for urban areas is higher — at least $1 million — whereas investment in rural or targeted employment areas is $500,000. The investment must also remain “at-risk” without repayment for a period of two full years.

EB-5 investment can only be received by an economic unit defined as a Regional Center — “an economic unit, public or private, engaged in the promotion of economic growth, improved regional productivity, job creation and increased domestic capital investment.”

Translated, this means that to be a “Regional Center” requires the designation and approval of government, specifically the USCIS. This, in turn, means yet more government bureaucracy, more “public” employees, and their attendant unions!

There are USCIS-approved EB-5 Regional Center projects in Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas/Oklahoma, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin.

Tomorrow we will take a look at Idaho’s EB-5 projects, specifically what its state government has done to lure in Chinese FDI.

Ponder this: America, a rich First World country, is so desperate that we have offered China — a developing and, as China’s leaders insist to this day, still poor country — to bring in FDI in exchange for permanent residency and U.S. citizenship.

Stay tuned!

H/t beloved fellow Tina.
