Unhinged Left: Man arrested for death threats against GOP senators who supported Justice Kavanaugh

Deranged and stupid DeRisi/Suffolk County Police photo

From NY Post: A Long Island man was busted for making death threats against GOP U.S. Senators Chuck Grassley and Susan Collins for their support of then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, The Post has learned.

Ronald DeRisi, 74, was taken into custody early Friday, and is expected to be arraigned later in the day in Central Islip federal court before Magistrate judge Gary R. Brown.

The Smithtown man is accused of leaving disturbing voicemails on the senators’ office phones following their public support of Kavanaugh’s nomination and confirmation, in an attempt to discourage the pols from voting in the jurist’s favor, a source familiar with the case revealed.

In one message left on September 27, DeRisi allegedly said that he had a “present” for Iowa’s Grassley, growling, “It’s a 9 millimeter. Side of your f—ing skull you scumbag motherf—–r.”

The message concluded: “Yeah, Kavanaugh – I don’t think so.”

In another rant aimed at the 85-year-old senator, DeRisi was recorded saying “We’re tired of this guy sucking taxpayers’ money! Getting a free f—ing ride! How many more years you gonna do it? None! He’s a dead man! 9 millimeter, side of the f—-ing head! If f—ing Kavanaugh gets in, he’s dead f—ing meat! Actually even if Kavanaugh doesn’t get in he’s dead f—ing meat. 9 millimeter, side of the head, you f—ing old bastard.”

Most of the calls were placed from a pre-paid cell phone, according to court docs.

DeRisi took a different tone with Collins, of Maine, calling her a “twit” on the day of the vote.

“I’m gonna get you,” he’s accused of saying. “You better pray this guy don’t get in.”

He left another message two minutes later, saying: “tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock.”

Less than an hour later, Collins received another message from DeRisi.

“Listen, you dumb son of a bitch, don’t you know that guy’s a sex offender? How could you not know that…you f–king twit.”

DeRisi pleaded guilty in Nassau County in 2015 to one count of aggravated harassment, for repeatedly calling his target’s office more than 15 times, and leaving threatening voicemails. It’s not clear if that victim was also a public figure. A message to DeRisi’s residence was not immediately returned.

Reps for Collins did not return requests for comment, while Grassley’s office referred the Post to the Public Information Office of the United States Capitol Police, who also declined to comment.

“Representative democracy cannot work if elected officials are threatened with death for simply doing their job,” United States Attorney Richard Donoghue said in a statement. “The First Amendment – the pinnacle of American achievement – protects debate, disagreement and dissent, not death threats. We and all those dedicated to the rule of law will not tolerate the use violence and threats of violence in attempts to prevail in political disputes.”

Men Without Chests Threaten Our Culture and Civilization

By guest blogger Kelleigh Nelson

“We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.” – C. S. Lewis

The Abolition of Man by C.S. Lewis was first copyrighted in 1944, which makes this short booklet all the more astonishing.  The insight Lewis had in those years of the pervasive philosophy that was intermingling within the educational systems is just as relevant for today, and now it is right in our faces. We can see vividly the corruption of morals and basic decency that is leading us more and more toward a Godless society.  C.S. Lewis looked logically at what happens when faith and tradition are removed from a society.  And we just watched what Lewis was describing in Judge Kavanaugh’s hearings, including the protests by Soros-paid anarchists.

Men Without Chests

“Men Without Chests” is the curious title of the first chapter of C.S. Lewis’ Abolition of Man.  Lewis explains that the “The Chest” is one of the “indispensable liaison officers between cerebral man and visceral man. It may even be said that it is by this middle element that man is man: for by his intellect he is mere spirit and by his appetite mere animal.” Without “Chests” we are unable to have confidence that we can grasp objective reality and objective truth.

The result of such chest-less education, as Lewis warns, is a dystopian and totalitarian future.

As our society disintegrates into what C.S. Lewis described in his short booklet, we are seeing more and more men without chests.  Those men are allowing the destruction of our society by anarchists who literally hate America and her culture and want it destroyed.

Facebook Executive Faces Outrage

Recently, hundreds of Facebook employees voiced outraged at senior executive Joel Kaplan, head of global policy for Facebook, for attending Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s congressional hearing in an apparent show of support for the Supreme Court nominee.  Kaplan is a longtime friend of Judge Kavanaugh.  Many employees felt that Kaplan’s presence at the hearing signaled that Facebook as a company had endorsed Judge Kavanaugh. They expressed their discontent in internal company message boards as well as directly to CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

CEO Sheryl Sandberg wrote in an internal message to employees that she thought “it was a mistake for him to attend given his role in the company.” A meeting has been scheduled to further discuss employees’ concerns. Zuckerberg, Sandberg and Kaplan are expected to attend and answer questions.

Kaplan apologized in a note to staff, but also added later, “I believe in standing by your friends, especially when times are tough for them.”

When did having friends and loyalties outside of your employer’s ideals become verboten?  Why apologize?  For what?  Only men with no chests do that.

University President Congratulates Childhood Friend

Charles Davis, the dean of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia, recently issued an apology to those he had “offended” with a tweet congratulating a childhood friend on becoming the state’s Republican candidate for governor. (See “U. of Georgia professor apologizes for offense of congratulating childhood friend who won a GOP primary“)

Davis then faced an intense backlash from liberals, who accused Davis of being a “racist” blind to his own “privilege” for daring to suggest that Brian Kemp is “a nice guy.”

Davis tweeted to his friend, “I went to high school with GOP guv candidate @BrianKempGA.  We played YMCA ball from childhood.  Politics be damned.  He is a nice guy, always was Kind to a fault.  He’s a friend, always has been, and will be when we’re old(er) and grey(er).  That’s how all this should work people.”

He then apologized and tweeted, “I’d like to apologize to anyone offended by my tweet shout out to Brian Kemp.  It was ill-timed and poorly written.  I’ve read and learned so much from you all and will endeavor to be more thoughtful.”

No, it wasn’t ill-timed, and neither was it poorly written. Get a chest!

In other words, Charles Davis has been warned that speaking or caring about Republican friends is verboten.  Men without chests!

Professor James Moore Defends Constitution

In this #MeToo era of believing every charge leveled by a woman against a man, the University of Southern California students want Professor James Moore fired for stating the law…innocent until proven guilty.  This is a part of the U.S. Constitution that ensures justice for those accused of a crime.  Not so for these university students however.

Democrats rape U.S. Constitution

Moore got himself in hot water when he noticed an email that was sent out to all staff and students at the university last Thursday. The email, which instructed students to “Believe Survivors” of sexual assault, inspired Moore to give those students a lesson in the criminal justice system.  “Accusers sometimes lie,” he pointed out in a reply-all email of his own. “If the day comes you are accused of some crime or tort of which you are not guilty, and you find your peers automatically believing your accuser, I expect you find yourself a stronger proponent of due process than you are now.”

Instead of the university supporting the truth Professor Moore was trying to teach his students, Dean Jack Knott placated them with comfort and assured them that they were right and Professor Moore was wrong!  “What he sent was extremely inappropriate, hurtful, insensitive,” he said. “We are going to try to do everything we can to try to create a better school, to educate the faculty. This is going to be a multi-pronged effort. We are going to have a faculty meeting later this week around implicit bias, sensitivity towards survivors.”

Obviously, it’s extremely inappropriate to point out that the accused in this country deserve due process.

Dean Jack Knott believes the truth of the U.S. Constitution is verboten.  Another man without a chest.

The Double Standard

While our secular society still maintains that honor, ethics, and integrity matter, it has purposely attacked, silenced, or destroyed those institutions and organizations that used to teach moral principles and universal Godly truths that instilled honor and character into men’s hearts and souls.

Today’s educational establishments have embraced moral relativism. Other political and cultural institutions have done the same, including our so-called progressive churches where most pulpits spew watered down pablum.

Interesting that in the cases of Tawana Brawley, the Duke lacrosse players, and the Rolling Stone defamation article, investigations of the alleged victims proved the innocence of the accused.  Over 219 celebrities, politicians, CEOs, and others have been accused of sexual misconduct since April 2017.  One wonders how many of these accusations were valid.  And our Senate Judiciary Committee is not seeking an investigation of Christine Blasey Ford.  We are just to accept that despite a total lack of proof or corroboration, she is telling the truth.

Now a retired University of Southern Maine professor, Susan Feiner, has offered students a course credit to harass Sen. Susan Collins on Kavanaugh because Senator Collins understood the fallacious attacks on this brilliant Judge and the importance of nominating this man to the supreme court. This professor has done this without the consent of the committee of faculty or university deans…and this is the seditious rot inside the brains of those teaching our young people.

Conclusion

Real women want strong masculine men with chests.  They want decent, honorable, reliable men who have not been feminized by society and do not cower to the pressures of today’s tyrannical and anarchist society.  And men have two choices: to find female strength captivatingly attractive, or to be insecure and intimidated. Real men love strong women, because God’s glory is beautiful, and “woman is the glory of man.” Link

C.S. Lewis saw the early stages of the moral collapse, societal chaos, and cultural decay we’re all now experiencing full force.  Inevitable destruction awaits all societies that reject universal moral principles, deny the existence of objective reality, and silence and punish those who teach and speak the truth.  Men must return to God, follow His moral principles, seek the truth, and lead virtuous lives.

In his September 19, 1796 Farewell Address to the nation, George Washington stated: “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and Morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great Pillars.”

William McGuffey, author of the McGuffey’s Readers, which were the mainstay of America’s government public school system from 1836 till the 1920’s, wrote: “Erase all thought and fear of God from a community, and selfishness and sensuality would absorb the whole man.” Where do you think the world is heading today?

Liberal tears: Vile comments left for Sen. Collins on her Twitter timeline

The Women’s March message to Sen. Collins…

These people are vile.

Some of the comments unhinged demorats left for Sen. Collins on Twitter yesterday (NSFW language):

  • “Please, stop talking. Your voice yields no reason. Your sentiments and words are as empty as Trump’s head, and as cold as his heart. You’re no friend to American democracy or decency; you’re the enemy. #SHAME.”
  • We’re coming for you. Enjoy your remaining days in the senate because we’re gonna rip you from that seat. Shame on you.”
  • Maybe someone in her family will know what it feels like to be assaulted and not believed.”
  • “Go fuck yourself”
  • “Here’s my full statement: YOU ARE FINISHED.”
  • “My full statement to you regarding everything you stand for. I hope you live in shame and misery every moment of every day and live 1,000 torturous years reflecting on how despicable of a human you are because you deserve it.”
  • “You fucking dog!”
  • BLOOD ON HER HANDS and the deaths of women will be seen as having been contributed to by her lack of action for what’s right and legal. A sham of a Senator.”
  • “In honor of all those victims of sexual assault, go to Hell. In honor of those of us in the LGBTQ community, go to Hell. In honor of all the people who will be screwed over by this partisan hack on the court, go to Hell.”
  • “You are a sorry excuse for a woman!! Despicable POS
  • “Skank!”
  • “#eatMe”
  • “FUCK U….I REALLY HOPE U & UR LOVED ONES REAP THE KARMA U HAVE SOWED 10FOLD…U R EVIL TO THE CORE ..MAY U & THE ONES U LOVE NEVER REST IN PEACE…”

Since this whole Kavanaugh circus had began, Collins received all kinds of threats – including those of rape and death. Expect that to continue now that Collins helped us get Justice Kavanaugh.

Brett Kavanaugh sworn in as Supreme Court Justice!

UPDATE (Oct. 9):

Justice Brett Kavanaugh is already at work! He hired his clerks — all women — and will participate in oral arguments before the Supreme Court today.

This afternoon, Brett Kavanaugh, 53, was sworn in as 114th Supreme Court justice, hours after the Senate voted 50-48 to confirm him.

Chief Justice John Roberts administered the constitutional oath and retired Justice Anthony Kennedy administered the judicial one.

The quick swearing-in enables Kavanaugh to begin work immediately in advance of arguments at the court Tuesday.

The Senate voted today to confirm U.S. District Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be the next Associate Justice on the Supreme Court, replacing pro-abortion Justice Anthony Kennedy following his retirement.

Kavanaugh was confirmed on a 50-48 vote:

  • All Democrat senators, except Joe Manchin (WV), voted “no” against Kavanaugh’s nomination.
  • All Republican senators voted “yes,” except pro-abort Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), who voted “present”, and pro-life Steve Daines (Montana), who supported Kavanaugh but was absent due to his daughter’s wedding.

Dianne Feinstein badgering Lisa Murkowski

Kavanaugh secured enough votes yesterday when Senators Susan Collins (R) and Joe Manchin (D) agreed to support him.

Last night, Sen. Collins delivered an extended defense of Kavanaugh’s record and announced her intention to vote in favor of his confirmation. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) took to Twitter to praise Collins’ “strongly held principles” and to denounce the Left’s threats against Collins:

“Most will never know the full extent of the efforts to intimidate & threaten @SenatorCollins on the #Kavanaugh vote. I am not talking about political pressure or people screaming at her in an elevator. I am talking about vicious, vile & dangerous actions.”

On Twitter, deranged Leftists call Collins a “traitor to women”, a “rape apologist”, and demand she be forever harassed in public as a punishment for her vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

Yesterday, when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell filed for cloture on Kavanaugh’s nomination, he said:

“This evening, the Senate will receive the results of the FBI’s supplemental background investigation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. This is now the seventh time the FBI has looked into Judge Kavanaugh’s background. And this information comes on top of what has already been one of the most thorough, most exhaustive Senate reviews of any Supreme Court nominee in our nation’s history.

Five days of public hearings. Sixty-five private meetings with Senators. More than 1,200 responses to written questions from members. More than 500,000 pages of documents for review — the most produced for any Supreme Court nomination in history. And the 300-plus opinions Judge Kavanaugh has issued during his 12 years on the D.C. Circuit. And now, Senators will have the evidence collected by this additional [FBI] background investigation for their consideration as well.”

Four senators blocked Senate from passing bill to defund Planned Parenthood

A June 2018 Gallup Poll found that although 60% of Americans support legalized abortion during the first three months of pregnancy, most oppose it in the later stages. Only 28% and 13% still support abortion once a pregnancy reaches, respectively, the second and third trimester. In the third trimester, the unborn baby is often viable outside the womb with medical support.

Put another way, the Gallup Poll found that 40% of Americans — 4 of every 10 — oppose legalized abortion. The population of the United States in 2018 is 327.123 million. That means 130.85 million Americans oppose legalized abortion.

It is bad enough that 4 of every 10 Americans believe abortion is immoral and should not be legalized. We are compelled by our government to give financial support, by way of our taxes, to the killing of unborn human beings.

Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion business in America, kills some 320,000 unborn babies every year, 900 babies every day. Its most recent annual report showed a record income of $1.46 billion — $400 million of which came from taxpayers. As Senator Rand Paul said in his speech on the Senate floor:

“Planned Parenthood received over 400 million dollars of taxpayer money, the government with a wink and a nod tells us that Planned Parenthood doesn’t spend the money on abortions but everybody knows that the taxpayers are really cross-subsidizing Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills.”

LifeNews reports that on Thursday, August 23, 2018, another effort to defund Planned Parenthood — a pro-life amendment sponsored by Sen. Paul that would revoke taxpayer funding for the abortion mill — failed in the U.S. Senate by a narrow 45-48 vote.

Republicans hold a narrow 51-seat majority in the Senate. Were it not for four senators — two Republicans, and two Democrats who had touted themselves as pro-life — the amendment to defund Planned Parenthood would have passed. By their votes against the amendment, these four senators are forcing 130.85 million Americans to subsidize the killing of the unborn with our hard-earned tax dollars:

  1. Susan Collins (R-Maine)
  2. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska)
  3. Joe Donnelly (D-Indiana)
  4. Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia)

After the vote Thursday, Planned Parenthood leader Dawn Laguens personally thanked Collins and Murkowski on Twitter:

“Huge thank you to @SenateDems, @lisamurkowski, & @SenatorCollins for standing up & protecting access to health care.”

Last year, the Senate also fell short of enough votes to defund Planned Parenthood, in part, because of Collins and Murkowski. In a letter to her constituents last summer, Murkowski vowed that she is “committed” to forcing taxpayers to fund the abortion chain. Earlier this week in an interview with Politico, Collins proclaims her fealty to the abortion mill, “I have voted for 21 years now for funding for Planned Parenthood. And yet, they continue to question my commitment. And that is extremely aggravating and unfair.”

Neither Murkowski nor Collins has indicated if they will support U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Although both pro-abort anti-life senators voted to confirm Justice Neil Gorsuch, they are facing huge pressure from abortion activists to vote against Kavanaugh.

Planned Parenthood has launched a $30 million political spending campaign to “take over Congress” in the November midterms. The only way the abortion business will be defunded completely is if pro-life voters head to the polls this November and provide the pro-life side a few more votes in the Senate to be able to achieve victory.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

Fears being poisoned, Obama has a food taster

cry_baby_obama2

A food taster is a person who takes the food or drink to be served to someone else to confirm that it is safe to eat and does not contain toxins or poisons. The person to whom the food is going to be served is usually an important person, like an emperor or monarch (all dictators!) who fears being assassinated. In ancient Rome, that task was often given to a slave, whose life is expendable.
Back in 2009, the AFP reported that La Fontaine de Mars, a restaurant in Paris, France, in which Obama and his family had dinner on the night of June 6, 2009, confirmed what waiter Gabriel de Carvalho had said about the POS using a food taster.
De Carvalho said: “They have someone who tastes the dishes. It wasn’t very pleasant for the cooks at first, but the person was very nice and was relaxed, so it all went well.”
The US Secret Service has always refused to confirm that US presidents travel with a food “taster.” Now we have word that Barack Obama has a food taster, but not just when he’s traveling.
Nicholas Ballasy reports for The Daily Caller, March 14, 2o13, that Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins told reporters the POS didn’t eat the scrumptious food at a lunch meeting with Senate Republicans on Capitol Hill because his “taster” was not present.
Collins said Obama had “looked longingly at” the healthy but tasteful lunch of lobster salad, Fox Family Potato Chips, and wild blueberry pie with Maine’s Gifford ice cream, but said he “can’t” eat the lunch: “He looked longingly at it. He honestly did look longingly at it, but apparently he has to have essentially a taster, and I pointed out to him that we were all tasters for him, that if the food had been poisoned all of us would have keeled over so, but he did look longingly at it and he remarked that we have far better food than the Democrats do, and I said that was because I was hosting.”
Uneasy is the head that wears the crown.
The caesars of ancient Rome had slaves as their food tasters. I wonder who’s the poor sucker who’s the food taster for the POS?

Internet Kill Bill and How to Fight Back

As Egypt’s government attempts to crackdown on street protests by shutting down internet and mobile phone services, the government of the United States — supposedly “the beacon of democracy” for the world — is preparing to reintroduce a bill that could be used to shut down the Internet.
The bill, granting Obama or any POTUS broad emergency powers to seize control of and even shut down the Internet in times of “national emergency,” initially was introduced last year but had expired with a new Congress. Wired.com reports that the bill will soon be reintroduced to a Senate committee.

Separated at birth


The proposed legislation was introduced into the US Senate by Demonrat-turned-“independent” Senator Joe Lieberman, who is chairman of the US Homeland Security committee and who recently announced he will not seek reëlection. (Good riddance) 
Last year, Lieberman argued the bill was necessary to “preserve those networks and assets and our country and protect our people” because, for all its allure, the net could be a “dangerous place with electronic pipelines that run directly into everything from our personal bank accounts to key infrastructure to government and industrial secrets”. This meant that US economic security, national security and public safety were now all at risk from new kinds of enemies, including “cyber warriors, cyber spies, cyber terrorists and cyber criminals”.

RINOs are butt-ugly critters


RINO Senator Susan Collins (Maine), a co-sponsor of the bill, said that unlike in Egypt, where the government was using its powers to quell dissent by shutting down the internet, her and Lieberman’s bill would not. “My legislation would provide a mechanism for the government to work with the private sector in the event of a true cyber emergency,” Collins said in an emailed statement to Wired. “It would give our nation the best tools available to swiftly respond to a significant threat.” Blah, blah, blah….
The shutdown in Egypt is the most comprehensive official electronic blackout of its kind. According to Renesys, a US Internet monitoring company, Egypt’s four main internet service providers cut off international access to their customers in a near simultaneous move at 2234 GMT on Thursday. Around 23 million Egyptians have either regular or occasional access to the internet, according to official figures, more than a quarter of the population.
The scale of Egypt’s crackdown on the internet and mobile phones amid deadly protests against the rule of President Hosni Mubarak is unprecedented in the history of the web, experts have said. “It’s a first in the history of the internet,” Rik Ferguson, an expert for Trend Micro, the world’s third biggest computer security firm, said. Julien Coulon, co-founder of Cedexis, a French internet performance monitoring and traffic management system, added: “In 24 hours we have lost 97 per cent of Egyptian internet traffic”.
Despite this, many Egyptians are finding ways to get access, some using international telephone numbers to gain access to dial-up internet.
Mobile telephone networks were also severely disrupted in the country on Friday. Phone signals were patchy and text messages inoperative. British-based Vodafone said all mobile operators in Egypt had been “instructed” Friday to suspend services in some areas amid spiralling unrest, adding that under Egyptian law it was “obliged” to comply with the order.
Egypt – like Tunisia where mass popular unrest drove out Zine El Abidine Ben Ali earlier this month – is on a list of 13 countries classed as “enemies of the internet” by media rights group Reporters Without Borders (RSF).
Condemnation of Egypt’s internet crackdown has been widespread. Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called on Cairo to restore the internet and social networking sites. Facebook, the world’s largest social network with nearly 600 million members, and Twitter also weighed in. Twitter, which has more than 175 million registered users, said of efforts to block the service in Egypt: “We believe that the open exchange of info & views benefits societies & helps govts better connect w/ their people.”
US digital rights groups also criticised the Egyptian government. “This action is inconsistent with all international human rights norms, and is unprecedented in internet history,” said Leslie Harris, president of the Center for Democracy and Technology in the United States.
[Source: Ben Grubb and Asher Moses, As Egypt goes offline US gets internet ‘kill switch’ bill ready,” Australia’s TheAge.com, January 31, 2011]
+++
So should the Internet kill bill actually gets passed by Congress and Obama shuts down the net, does this mean we’ll just take it lying down?
Hell no! We’re Americans, the biological and spiritual sons and daughters of Revolutionaries!
OpenMesh.com has a list of open-source ad-hoc network and routing protocols/platforms that will provide local information during an Internet kill switch. Print the following list and keep it handy!

We Americans will resist and fight tyranny till our dying breath. It’s in our  DNA!
H/t beloved fellows Tina, May, Joseph.
