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.”

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.

Rosie O’Donnell says Biden should drop out of presidential race: “He’s not the future of the democratic party”

From Yahoo: Rosie O’Donnell is calling for Joe Biden to drop out of the 2020 race for president.

During a Tuesday appearance on CNN’s Cuomo Primetime, the comedian and TV personality cited the 76-year-old former vice president’s age and ideas as the reasons she’ll be backing someone else seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination.

“I think that Joe Biden should say, ‘I’m gonna to sit this one out,’” O’Donnell said. “‘I’m gonna be an elder statesman, and I’m gonna advise.’ And then whoever is the nominee, I think, should think about how to best use somebody with the experience that Joe Biden has [gained] in all these years of politics. But he’s not the future of the Democratic Party.”

O’Donnell’s preferred candidates are Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who she’s supported in the past, and California Sen. Kamala Harris.

Cuomo pointed out that the latest CNN poll showed that Biden is the candidate with the best chance at defeating the Republican Party’s candidate, President Donald Trump. How, he asked, could someone argue that Biden isn’t in the party’s future?

“Well, because he’s antiquated in a lot of his thinking, a lot of his beliefs,” O’Donnell said of Biden. O’Donnell also said Democratic House majority leader Nancy Pelosi should impeach Trump, although the speaker has said she would rather see Trump lose an election.

“Because this is not the way to deal with Trump, as someone who had to deal with him for a decade before he became President of the United States, relentless, unending abuse from him,” said O’Donnell, who publicly feuded with Trump for years before he moved into the White House.

“This is not how you deal with him. You don’t let him go and give him a long lead,” she said. “You gotta reel him back in and confront him at his own level. To turn around and say we’re not going to have an impeachment inquiry, I think is a gross injustice, and I think Nancy Pelosi is making a huge mistake.

O’Donnell was on the show to promote Lights for Liberty, the hundreds of vigils that will be held around the country Friday to protest the treatment of immigrants at the United States border.

“This has to be the issue of the election,” the former daytime talk show host said. “I think it’s gonna be, because mothers and fathers across the country are gonna say, ‘Enough. I can’t and will not tolerate this on my watch.’”

If elected president, Kamala Harris would use executive order for gun control, contrary to Constitution’s 2nd Amendment

1½ months after she said she would take executive action on gun control if elected president, Kamala Harris said it again.

On July 1, 2019, Kamala Harris tweeted that “when” — not if — “elected president,” if Congress fails to pass a gun control bill, she will use an executive order (“take executive action”) to impose gun control on Americans.

On the same day, Harris also hyperventilated that President Trump is “the greatest threat” to U.S. national security.

Harris’ gun-control tweet elicited these responses:

@natepedersen23: “Thanks for letting me know. If you get elected I’ll make sure to buy multiple guns before then. Lol”

@Geopilot: “you can’t negate the Constitution with an executive order.”

@marblesflower: “If you get the nomination, I will vote for Trump and the Republican ticket straight down to make sure you never have that opportunity.”

@frozennOOb: “Everyone should be scared of a tyrant promising to violate her oath before she even runs for the official spot. She is promising a 2nd Civil War.”

@Manning4USCong: “So in other words if elected president and if Congress doesn’t do what you want you’re going to act like a tyrant and give yourself powers you don’t have and sign an unconstitutional executive order. Remind me who’s the threat to our republic again.”

@stclairashley: “If you actually cared about children being murdered, you’d defund Planned Parenthood which has taken the lives of more children than guns ever have.”

Kamala Harris has $100 BILLION plan for tackling black homeownership, racial wealth gap

I recall some similar programs that led to a financial crisis just not too long ago. How soon they forget history when running for office while promising free stuff.

From Fox News: Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., announced Saturday that she would invest $100 billion of federal money into housing assistance for black families as part of an effort to close the racial wealth gap in the United States if elected president.

“After generations of discrimination, it’s time to give Black families a real shot at homeownership,” Harris tweeted on Saturday.

While appearing at Essence’s Global Black Economic Forum, she emphasized the role of homeownership in driving the growth of wealth in the U.S. According to Harris’ campaign, she would help 4 million homebuyers through down payment and closing-cost assistance — granting up to $25,000 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

“If we eliminate racial wealth disparities in homeownership rates, median Black wealth would grow $32,113 per household, and the wealth gap between Black and white households would shrink 31 percent,” her campaign said.

The program would target residents in red-lined communities — areas the Home Owners’ Loan Corporation has dissuaded lenders from investing in — which her campaign identified as a culprit behind wealth disparities.

“Redlining has resulted in households of color receiving just 2% of the [Federal Housing Administration] loans expanded between 1934-1962, and formerly redlined neighborhoods are sites of deep racial disparities in home value and lending activity,” an information sheet from her campaign read.

Her plan would also seek to increase credit access by alter crediting reporting standards to include payments on credit cards, student loans, auto loans, and mortgage payments.

The announcement came after polling showed her advancing amid a dispute with the frontrunner, former Vice President Joe Biden, over comments he made about racial issues.

After she targeted Biden during the first Democratic primary debate, Biden’s lead dropped in a Quinnipiac poll. That same poll showed Harris rising from 7 percent to 20 percent and leading Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

Racial issues have become a major topic as many Democrats accused the administration of bias against minorities. Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, also sought to address racial wealth disparities with a plan that would vastly expand the federal government’s investment in women- and minority-owned businesses.

The 2020 hopeful claimed his plan would “unlock over half a trillion dollars” in resources and “spur the development of 200,000 new women and minority-owned small businesses.”

It also would redirect $100 billion in federal contracting toward small businesses, expand access to mentorship opportunities, open a public credit reporting agency and work through certain avenues to expand access to markets and capital.

LOL: De Blasio is no one’s choice for president in Iowa

From NY Post: Mayor de Blasio didn’t even register in a new Iowa poll that shows former Vice President Biden’s support slipping but Pete Buttigieg surging among the field of Democratic presidential hopefuls in Iowa.

De Blasio, who’s been in Iowa campaigning over the weekend, and Wayne Messam, the mayor of Miramar, Fla., were the only two candidates in the field of 23 not listed as either a first or second choice for president in the Des Moines Register/ CNN poll released late Saturday.

”There’s always been a question mark as to how many (candidates) can get any real traction,” said J. Ann Selzer, the president of Selzer & Co., which conducted the survey. ”And we gave them every opportunity to show that they have some kind of constituency here. But there’s a fair number who, their constituency just isn’t very big.”

De Blasio will attend a major Democratic Party fundraiser Sunday evening in Cedar Rapids, skipping the Puerto Rican Day Parade, the first sitting mayor to miss the celebration.

Biden is still the front-runner with 24 percent of the support of likely caucus-goers, but that’s down from December’s survey when he registered 32 percent of support, the survey said.

The race for second place is a statistical dead heat with Sen. Bernie Sanders at 16 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren amassing 15 percent and Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., gaining 14 percent.
The survey shows both Warren and Buttigieg making strong gains after polling at just 9 percent and 1 percent, respectively, in March.

Sen. Kamala Harris of California is the only other candidate among the field with a significant level of support with 7 percent.

The poll was taken between June 2 and June 5, before Biden flip-flopped on his stand on the Hyde Amendment, which bans federal funds for most abortions. Last Thursday, he came out against the amendment.

The Iowa caucuses will be held Feb. 3, 2020.

The poll surveyed 600 likely Democratic caucus-goers. It has a plus/minus 4 percent margin of error.

Kamala Harris vows to take executive action on gun control if elected

Fortunately this womyn has a slim chance of taking the lead of the demorat presidential candidates.

From NY Post: Sen. Kamala Harris pledged Sunday that she will pursue executive action on gun control measures if Congress fails to act in the first 100 days of her presidential administration.

“I’m proposing, one, that if by my 100th day in office when elected president of the United States, if the United States Congress fails to put a bill on my desk … then I’m prepared to take executive action because that’s what’s needed: action,” Harris, a California Democrat and 2020 hopeful, said in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Harris had first articulated the plan at a CNN town hall in late April, but bought it up again Sunday on the heels of yet another school shooting, in which 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo was killed after rushing the gunman to save his classmates.

“We are not waiting on tragedies and we are not waiting on good ideas,” Harris said, pointing to the “heroism of a child who we now mourn his loss, his parents’ only child.”

When asked how she liked Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-N.J.) proposal for a federal gun registry she answered, “I like the idea. But, Jake, I’m going to tell you, on the issue of the need for gun safety laws, we’re not at any loss for good ideas. People have been having good ideas for decades on this issue.”

Booker is also vying for the White House.

Harris said that the country was waiting for Congress to act. If she was forced to take executive action, Harris said she would require those who sell more than five guns a year to do background checks. She would also have the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives take away licenses from gun dealers that don’t follow the law.

Harris also expressed support for government intervention in dealing with Facebook. Co-founder Chris Hughes said Thursday that the social network should be broken up.

Asked by Tapper if she agreed with Hughes, Harris answered, “yes, I think we have to seriously take a look at that, yes.”

“I mean, when you look at the issue, they’re essentially a utility. Like, there are very few people that can actually get by and be involved in their communities or society or in whatever their profession without somehow, somewhere using Facebook,” Harris said. “It’s very difficult for people to be engaged in any level of commerce without – so, we have to recognize it for what it is. It is essentially a utility that has gone unregulated. And as far as I’m concerned, that’s got to stop.”

Over the course of the interview, Harris also tried to clean up comments she made to Tapper in January when she said she wanted to do away with private health insurance. Harris explained that while she supported Medicare-for-all “it doesn’t get rid of all insurance.” “It was in the context of saying, let’s get rid of all the bureaucracy. Let’s get rid of all the waste,” she said of her previous remark.

Harris said the Medicare-for-all bill she supports “doesn’t get rid of supplemental insurance.”

The legislation also entitles all residents of the United States to health care services.

Tapper asked if this meant Harris supported giving health care to illegal immigrants. “Let me just be very clear about this. I’m opposed to any policy that would deny in our country any human being from access to public safety, public education or public health, period,” Harris answered.

Hilarious: 2020 presidential candidates as “Michael Scott”

Michael Scott is a character from the show “The Office.”

I never watched this show yet this video is pretty spot on.

It’s amazing how a TV show’s past can intersect with today’s reality.

Great job by The Washington Free Beacon!

Kamala Harris says she needed psychotherapy because of President Trump

A year ago, Demonrat senator Kamala Harris (CA), who slept screwed her way  into government, “joked” about killing President Trump.

Now, Harris, who wants to be president of the USA, says she and “a lot of” other Democrats needed and received psychotherapy because of Trump.

Katie Pavlich reports for Townhall that in a speech to the Human Rights Campaign Los Angeles last Saturday night, March 30, 2019, Harris whined about needing therapy because of President Trump:

“It [Trump’s presidency] has caused a lot of us to go through individual and group therapy. It has caused a lot of us to feel a bit of despair, and depression, and anxiety, and fear. And I say don’t let the bad guys win.”

Kamala Harris, the delicate snowflake who wants to be your President, has raised $12 million since announcing her candidacy earlier this year.
