The Daily Wire’s editor in chief, Ben Shapiro, has an excellent piece at the National Review focusing on how the left is manipulating children to push their anti-gun agenda.
Leftists are parading traumatized teens to make an emotional plea about gun control. But we shouldn’t let young people make policy…
Children and teenagers are not fully rational actors. They’re not capable of exercising supreme responsibilities. And we shouldn’t be treating innocence as a political asset used to push the agenda of more sophisticated players.
But the Left won’t stand for such line-drawing. That’s because for the Left, status as a rational actor, let alone as an expert, isn’t actually the chief qualification for political gravitas: It’s emotion.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo is such a big liar, that when caught, he even lies about his lies.
An Israeli writer argues that his nation is proof-positive that the NRA is right.
When the knife intifada erupted in September 2015, the Israeli government’s response was to ease the process for the civilian populace to obtain weapons. After a particularly bloody Jerusalem shooting attack that killed four, then-Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan drastically changed the gun laws in order to significantly raise the number of armed civilians on the streets. Instantly, graduates of Special Forces units and IDF officers with the rank of Lieutenant and above were permitted to purchase guns at their will, security guards were allowed to bring their guns home after work, and the minimum age for a license was reduced from 21 to 18.
Erdan explained that “civilians well trained in the use of weapons provide reinforcement in the struggle against terrorism”, while Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat called for every resident to carry a gun, and was even photographed traveling the city carrying a Glock 23.
A bad way to ban “assault weapons.”
The New York Post explains that the Russian trolls hardly impacted the 2016 elections, which stands in direct opposition to the whining and moaning of Democrats.
Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) has 10 very important questions about the Trump dossier, and these questions need to be answered.
The federal government has been investigating the Russian influence on the 2016 election and so far all they’ve found is 13 Russian computer geeks who spent about $2 million on some cheesy Facebook ads. It’s time the left faces the facts… the Russians didn’t swing the voters to Trump, federal coverups did.
Speaking of federal coverups – new evidence indicates that a former staffer of Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is likely directing the post-election efforts for Fusion GPS. Fusion GPS is the organization that paid (with DNC/Clinton money) for the Trump Dossier.
From disruption to dystopia – Silicon Valley’s collapse.
