Heroism and Second Amendment rights set aside: USA Today pushes a gun control narrative

USA Today tweeted yesterday the following: “Opinion: Jack Wilson is exactly the type of person you want around with a gun because he’s a firearms instructor. But we know nothing about the at least six other parishioners who also appeared to draw their handguns. And that’s terrifying.

“Journalist” Elvia Diaz

From the headline at the opinion piece: “Armed, even in church: Texas shooting is about a lot more than Jack Wilson’s heroism”

The author, a journalist named Elvia Diaz, further asks, “Jack Wilson is a hero. But why were so many other parishioners armed? And how did the shooter get his gun, given his criminal history?

She’s asking so many questions, let me help her out with a few answers…

For example, why must one be armed in church? Because evil exists EVERYWHERE, Elvia.
Why were so many parishioners armed? Because of the Second Amendment.
How did a criminal get a gun? Because criminals DO NOT FOLLOW the law.

Here’s excerpts from her opinion piece:

“Jack Wilson is a hero alright. It took him only six seconds to kill a gunman at a Texas church, saving countless lives.

Unfortunately, that kind of split-second heroism has been turned into a PR tool by gun advocates.

The reality of Wilson’s heroism is a lot more complex. He wasn’t just an ordinary parishioner, as gun advocates may want you to believe. The church’s volunteer security team member is a firearms instructor, gun range owner and former reserve deputy with a local sheriff’s department, according to a New York Times detailed account.

The real story here isn’t heroism

Of course, that wouldn’t matter to the churchgoers of that community of roughly 18,000 residents, right? What matters is that Wilson saved them with a single shot and other gun-wielding parishioners were ready just in case Wilson failed.

But have we really reached a point when each of us need to carry a firearm anywhere we go? Gun advocates certainly think so. They point to Wilson and the new Texas law that allows him and others to carry firearms inside the church.

The Second Amendment gives Americans the right to bear arms. And that isn’t going anywhere. But that constitutional amendment doesn’t spell out the types of firearms Americans should bear, nor does it give Americans the right to sell them to anyone to carry anywhere.

We know firearms are readily available to anyone who wants one, really. And that’s part of the problem. Sunday’s shooting isn’t just about Jack Wilson’s heroism. It’s about how Kinnunen got a hold of a weapon in the first place, given his criminal record.

If this womyn has NO CLUE as to how a criminal can obtain a gun as a prohibited possessor, I can’t help her. She’s intent on pushing a gun control narrative.

And shame on her for turning Jack Wilson’s excellent taxpayer relief shot that resulted in saving human lives into a “PR stunt” by gun advocates.

Dallas jury rules against dad trying to save his 7-year-old son from “gender transition”

This is just sad.

From LifeSiteNews’ YouTube video:

“A Texas jury has ruled against Jeffrey Younger, the father who is trying to protect his seven-year-old son, James, from chemical castration via a gender “transition.” This means James’ mother, Dr. Anne Georgulas, will be able to continue “transitioning” him into “Luna,” and now has full authority to start him on puberty blockers and eventually cross-sex hormones.”

Read the whole story here.

Anther detail? The doctor/mother isn’t even the child’s biological mother. Read about that little detail here on Twitchy.

I wonder if the father’s counsel presented the information issued earlier this month by the FDA which claims that thousands of deaths are linked to the puberty-blocking drugs now increasingly given to children who suffer from gender dysphoria or claim to be “transgender.”

From Breitbart: “Between 2013 and June 2019, FDA recorded 41,213 adverse events, including 6,379 deaths and 25,645 “serious” reactions in patients who took the hormone blocker known as Lupron — the same drug given to children who say their gender identity is not consistent with their biological sex.”

Read that whole Breitbart story here.

I hope Mr. Younger appeals his case.

Hollyweird sad that Louis Vitton opens plant in Texas because OrangeManBad

Those infected with TDS show their true colors: Their hatred for President Trump consumes them so much that they can’t celebrate the creation of 1,000 American jobs.

Last Thursday before his campaign rally in Dallas, President Trump (along with Ivanka and Jared) joined the CEO of high-fashion label Louis Vuitton to celebrate the opening of a large facility in Alvarado, Texas.

CEO Bernard Arnault told WWD: “We are very honored to have the President of the United States. I’m not here to judge any types of policies. I’m here to work with my brand, and we are going to (over five years) have one thousand people working here, and that’s what matters.”

Instead of celebrating this job-creation endeavor, TDS-infected “celebrities” chose to bash President Trump because OrangeManBad. The Hollywood Reporter has some of the responses:

Actress Debra Messing: “Just so you know, Trump is at a Louis Vuitton opening while 10s of 1000s of Kurds — who were forced to flee their homes — try to find a safe place to survive as refugees.”

TDS-infected Debra Messing

Hollywood stylist Karla Welch: “Money over morals. Welcome to America. But maybe judge his racism/sexism/climate denierism and pls @lvmh don’t act like @realdonaldtrump has done anything for workers. Or kids in cages, don’t worry about judging that. I wonder what he would have said to Hitler. It’s that business men chose their money over their morality. There isn’t a grey space on this.”

Stylist to Julia Roberts, Elizabeth Stewart: “We in the biz love the people at LV but it’s soul crushing to see Bernard Arnault associate with this cruel and criminal regime which is going to go down on the wrong side of history.”

Stylist Alexandra Mandelkorn: “Oof this make me reallllly over LVMH. Wonder how @badgalriri feels about this.”

Makeup artist Rachel Goodwin: “F*CK this is so bad.”

Illegal alien accused of shooting transgender woman was previously deported

Illegal alien Ramirez-Cayente/Dallas County Sheriff’s photo

Ruh roh, demorats…you’ve got an undocumented immigrant who is a prohibited possessor versus a highly-protected special class – transgender womyn. Which one you going to protect in this case?

From Fox News: A Mexican citizen who allegedly shot a transgender Dallas woman last month was living in the United States illegally and is now a fugitive, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials said.

Domingo Ramirez-Cayente, 29, deported in 2010, was arrested Sept. 24 and charged with aggravated assault, The Dallas Morning News reported. He reportedly admitted to shooting Daniela Calderon, 35, six times in the chest, stomach and hip.

Calderon told the newspaper Ramirez-Cayente yelled homophobic and transphobic slurs during the attack.

Instead of being held in police custody, Ramirez-Cayente posted a $25,000 bond and hasn’t been seen since. It was unclear if he remains in the area. Dallas County prosecutors wanted him to be fitted with an ankle monitor, but the terms of his bond were set before they could intervene.

“The magistrate set the bond at $25,000 with no ELM (electronic leg monitor). As soon as the D.A.’s Office was made of aware of the low bond, we moved to amend the conditions of bond to include a monitoring device; unfortunately, the defendant had already fled,” Kimberlee Leach, a spokeswoman for the Dallas County District Attorney’s office, told the news outlet.

Back in March 2010, Ramirez-Cayente was taken into custody by ICE agents near Brackettville, Texas, after entering the U.S. illegally, the agency said.

“Ramirez-Cayente was processed as an expedited removal and removed to Mexico on March 27, 2010. ICE has not encountered Ramirez-Cavente since his 2010 removal,” said an agency spokesperson.

ICE did not immediately respond to Fox News for comment.

Anyone caught reentering the U.S. illegally can be charged with a felony. It was unclear if the Dallas Police Department flagged Ramirez-Cayente as an undocumented immigrant charged with a crime.

Demorat Texas judge “apologizes” for joke about accident that left Governor Abbott paralyzed

Judge Eckhardt proudly wearing her “Pussy Hat”

Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt wore her pussy hat in her courtroom in January 2017. I’m sure she’s really, really serious when it comes to furthering the debate on political discourse.

The good judge wearing her pussy hat in a court of law.

——————————-

Us conservatives are not snowflakes when it comes to humor.

Yet if you have to defend your joke as “disagreeable” then it really isn’t a joke. Either defend it as funny or not.

One look at her Twitter timeline and you can decipher all you need to about her desire to “further the debate” and “political discourse.”

It’s good to know where the good judge stands.

From Fox News: A Democratic judge in Texas apologized Friday for saying the state’s governor, Greg Abbott, ‘hates trees because one fell on him,’ a reference to an accident 35 years ago which left Abbott paralyzed.

Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt made the quip during a discussion at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin about the Texas Legislature overriding local ordinances such one in the state capital regarding the cutting down of trees. Eckhardt’s comment drew laughs from the panel’s audience.

The comment was first reported in a tweet by The Federalist political editor John Daniel Davidson.

“In my panel today at the Texas Tribune Festival on ‘Public Enragement’ I spoke about the importance of being able to disagree without being disagreeable. Then I said something disagreeable,” Eckhardt said in a statement, according to The Texas Tribune.

“I want to apologize to Governor Abbott. I made a flippant comment that was inappropriate. The comment did nothing to further the debate I was participating in, much less further the political discourse in our community, state, and nation. While the Governor and I disagree on a number of issues, that is no excuse to be disagreeable.”

Abbott, 61, was left paralyzed from the waist down since 1984 when an oak tree fell on him while he was jogging in Houston. He has used a wheelchair ever since.

Travis County Republican Party chairman Matt Mackowiak said Eckhardt’s remark showed a “profound lack of compassion” towards someone with a disability.

Judge Eckhardt apparently believes that his disability is open to ridicule if it helps her make a political argument. This joke represents a profound lack of compassion from Judge Eckhardt,” he said in a statement. “There is no place for insulting Americans with disabilities and Judge Eckhardt should know better.”

Abbott’s office could not immediately be reached for comment.

Demorat Sheila Jackson Lee says an AR-15 is as heavy as “ten boxes” you might move

How do idiots like this get elected?

Starts at 0:28 mark.

“…it is as heavy as ten boxes that you might be moving.”

She also states that the bullet that is used is a “.50 caliber” and that they need to be licensed and do not need to be on the streets.

Here’s me shooting a super, duper “ten box heavy,” .50 caliber AR!

It’s amazing that I didn’t fall on my butt shooting that thing!

Man wrongly outed as President Trump supporter, forced to go over “situational awareness” with his family

Joaquin Castro: He didn’t mean no harm to Trump supporters…

Expect things to get much, much worse as we head into 2020.

And, no matter who you are, “situational awareness” is ALWAYS a good thing. I suggest MAGA supporters practice this daily.

From Fox News: A San Antonio man was wrongly outed on Twitter as a donor to President Trump by Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro and said Friday the incident forced him to review emergency plans with his wife and three children.

Harper Huddleston said on “Fox & Friends” that his name appeared on Castro’s list instead of the name of his retired father, who contributed to the Trump campaign. He said the mix-up was because they share the same first name, but have different middle names, though his father does not go by the name Harper.

Huddleston said he supports Trump and has contributed in the past to the mayoral campaign of Castro’s brother, Julian, who is now running for president. He said he was glad to have received the negative attention instead of his father, but explained that he was forced to go over emergency plans with his wife and three children.

“We convened together as a family and talked about situational awareness, exit strategy, avoiding and exiting conflict, talked about staying low and close to home and just being at our very highest senses,” said Huddleston.

Castro, D-Texas, has refused calls from the Trump campaign and Republicans to delete the post, arguing the names of the donors are publicly available.

“Unless you support the white nationalism and the racism that Donald Trump is paying for and fueling, then I hope you, as a person of good conscience, will think twice about contributing to his campaign,” said Castro in an interview on MSNBC, where he was pressed by host Willie Geist about the likelihood that people will be harassed.

“I don’t want anyone on the left or the right to be a target of any crazy person or any person that means them harm at all,” he responded, claiming the names were already circulating before his account posted them.

Huddleston argued that when Castro, as a sitting congressman, tweets such a list, it reaches a “very large audience” and he attempted to connect “fine members of this community” to racism and white supremacy.

“Moms, dads, retirees and to associate these people with those types of claims is just wrong,” he said, arguing that he believes Castro’s actions will actually motivate the president’s supporters.

“All this does is galvanize the interest and reinvigorate making America great again,” said Huddleston.

On Thursday, another of the donors from the list, Mark Hanrahan blasted Castro for his “galling” decision.

“He knows exactly what he’s doing,” said Hanrahan, adding that his father fought in World War II and he refuses to be “bullied with slurs of racism.”

Mexican government vows legal action against US in response to El Paso shooting

From MyFoxChicago: The Mexican government on Sunday threatened legal action against the United States for its response to Saturday’s mass shooting at Walmart in El Paso, Texas that left 20 people dead, including six Mexican nationals.

Mexico’s Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard made the announcement in a video posted to Twitter, in which he expressed indignation for the mass shooting at the Cielo Vista Mall.

“The president of the Republic has instructed me so that this posture and indignation from Mexico is translated, first in protecting affected families, and then in legal actions, efficient and prompt, quick and convincing so that Mexico can demand the conditions to protect to the Mexican-American community and Mexicans in the United States,” Ebrard said.

He called Saturday’s shooting “an act of barbarism.” Ebrard didn’t offer specifics but said Mexico would take action to protect its citizens living in the U.S.

“What happened is inadmissible and today, at 4 p.m., we will announce the first judicial actions that the Mexican government will take in accordance to international law,” he added.

Among the 20 killed are six Mexican citizens and seven injured. Mexico revised the number of its citizens killed Sunday from three to six.

“Today, unfortunately, the update provided by the FBI… the regrettable part is that they’ve confirmed that 6 Mexicans have lost their lives, and there are 7 injured in El Paso, Texas,” Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said.

Ebrard said five of the Mexican citizens killed were: Sara Regalado, Adolfo Cerros Hernandez, Jorge Calvillo Garcia, Elsa Mendoza de la Mora, and Gloria Irma Marquez. The sixth victim has not been identified.

El Paso, home to 680,000 residents, sits across the southern border from Cuidad Juarez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.

The gunman, (name purposely omitted), 21, of Allen, Texas, was charged with capital murder. Investigators are looking into a manifesto they believe he wrote that could be a “nexus to a hate crime.”

———————————–

You want to talk about “protecting affected families,” Mexico? How about taking care of corralling your OWN criminals who KILL/RAPE/HARM American citizens? See the following examples:

Illegal alien who murdered Kate Steinle found not guilty by SF jury
Sanctuary King County, WA: Convicted rapist and illegal alien freed after 9 months returns to attack his disabled victim second time
For Mollie Tibbetts, killed by an illegal, it’s racist to oppose illegal immigration
SHARES
Women Hit, Killed by Illegal Immigrant. Who Was Deported 8 Times…
Mexican illegal immigrant who was deported 16 years ago ‘snuck back into the US and raped a sleeping nine-year-old girl’
New Jersey teen rescued from illegal immigrant who abducted, raped her
Mexican Rapists

What happened to the American citizens mentioned above and the hundreds of others attacked/killed at the hands of Mexican illegal aliens is “inadmissible.”

Before they start threatening the U.S, I suggest Mexico teach their OWN citizens about international law.
