How much is that gun in the window… the one with the semi auto trigger… how much is that gun in the window… I do hope that gun is for sale… 

Okay the shit is starting to get crazy out there these days…

A Virginia mayor wants to keep all Syrian refugees out of his city and uses FDR to justify his cause…

Elephant prez candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz want to limit how many Syrian refugees can get into America to 10,000… or less… and… only if they are Christians… no Muslims allowed…

Another elephant prez candidate… Herr Trumper has called for increased surveillance of American Muslims and then followed that up with the thought of creating mandatory databases for all folks that are Muslims… papers, please…

And… then…

Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists…

joe1…there is a little bill wallowing in the lower depths of the “Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations” with almost no chance of ever seeing the light of day or being called to the floor of the House or the Senate for a vote…

In 2005, FBI Director Robert Mueller urged Congress to consider closing a loophole in federal law that allows terrorists to buy guns in the US.

In 2007, legislation, that was initially proposed by the Bush the II administration and then formally requested by his AG, was introduced in the US Senate by Frank Lautenberg, a donkey from NJ, and, if passed, it would have permitted the AG to deny the right to purchase weapons to those peeps that were IDed as dangerous terrorists. The proposal back then was lambasted by various factions who said the proposed law violated the Second Amendment. The bill was titled “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act.”

In 2009, the legislation was again introduced as a bill, this time by Peter King, an elephant from Long Island (NY) and once again it was touted as legislation that would prevent terrorists from purchasing guns in the US. And, it was “shouted down” by Second Amendment advocates who were led by the NRA.

In 2011, Lautenberg was back and reintroduced the bill, again it went nowhere…

In February 2015… once more the bill was revived… this time by the previously mentioned elephant King in the House, and, by donkey Diane Feinstein in the Senate… it now lies in wait for whether it will be brought up for a vote… again… it proposes to close what is called a loophole in present federal law that allows terrorists to buy guns and other weapons in the US.HR 1076

The proposed law… which, one more time, was initially requested by an elephant prez… has constantly and consistently been denied any chance at getting beyond the introduction state and having any chance at being made into law by, ironically, mostly other elephants with strong backing from the NRA… a law which would close what is now a legal loophole that lets many peeps buy guns… including certain bastards that are currently on the United States’ “no fly’ list.

Fact: The federal Government Accountability Office (GAO) says more than 2,000 suspects on the FBI’s Terrorist Watchlist bought weapons in the U.S. over the last 11 years… the proposed legislation… aka “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act”… would have at least prevented some of those creeps from getting those weapons.

Fact: GAO says that from 2004 to 2014, 2,233 suspected terrorist peeps tried to buy guns in America and 2,043 walked away with the weapon they wanted… that’s a success rate of 91%.

Fact: In 2013-14 that same percentage of successful buyers was 94%… 455 suspected terrorists got weapons while only 30 were denied the weapon of their choice under present federal law.

When questioned by media folks, Senate Majority Leader… Kentucky elephant Mitch McConnell said he was unaware about the version of the bill that was presented before the senate in February.graphic-guns-1117

Other elephants when questioned, also pleaded ignorance… something they seem to be very good at… being ignorant.

The NRA has only kept to the party line that they oppose the bill on grounds that law-abiding Americans wrongly placed on the terrorist watch list would lose their Second Amendment rights.

There are roughly 700,000 names on the Watchlist… aka the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Database… and it includes the names of both domestic and international suspects identified through intelligence and law enforcement investigation.

Not one single gun buyer on the list was refused by any single gun seller because they posed a threat to American security or because they were on any Watchlist… they may have been rejected for a felony conviction, because of being under an indictment, or maybe because they were found by a court of having mental health problems but not due to being on any Watchlist or of having any possible terrorist connections…

One more time… between 2004 and 2014, suspected 2,233 terrorists attempted to buy and 91% succeeded.  Of those that were rejected never was the reason because of being a suspected terrorist or being o the FBI’s Watchlist… felony conviction, under indictment, adjudicated mental health, misdemeanor crime of domestic violence conviction, fugitive from justice and controlled substance abuse were among the reasons but if you were a terrorist or on the Watchlist… “Hey! Come one; come all Uncle Bud’s Gun Emporium is open for business and has just the assault weapon for you!”bramhall-world-supplies

And… don’t forget… that success rate jumped to 94% between 2013 and 2014.

The NRA, and certain civil liberty groups, oppose to the proposed law because they have “a concern that the FBI might Watchlist a person as a ‘suspected terrorist’ on dubious grounds.”  And, yes, 700,000 does appear to be a rather big group of folks that are suspected of being terrorists living among us, but, if it makes it hard for somebody to get their hands on a weapon that might have ties to terrorism, then, is that such a bad  thing? Besides, even 71% of polled NRA members support prohibiting people on the terror Watchlist from buying guns.

The fact that the federal government currently has no authority to block firearm sales to international or domestic terror suspects led American-born senior al Qaeda operative, Adam Gadahn, to release a 2011 video message that said in part…

“And in the West you’ve got a lot at your disposal. Let’s take a look at America for example. America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms. You can go down to a gun show at the local convention center and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle without a background check and, most likely, without having to show an identification card. So what are you waiting for?”

A bipartisan proposed bill languishes in the senate… mostly being held up by NRA moneyed elephants… the same elephants, who for the most part, don’t want to let into the US Syrian refugees because they may be threats to our safety… even decrying the dangers of Syrian children as threats to American safety.you might be an elephant

The Elephants, led by their noses by the NRA, will guarantee the right to buy military grade heavy weapons that could wipe out a shopping mall… or a concert… or a sporting event… or a museum filled with school children on a field trip… or God knows what… to terrorists who have been banned from flying but not one Syrian refugee child can be allowed to enter into America.

Passing “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act” might not be a cure all for disarming terrorists… that is…

Blocking certain peeps who may be on a certain Watchlist might not stop every bad guy terrorist from getting his/her hands on a gun to commit jihad on all of us infidels… there’s still many black market opportunities throughout the world…. but it would close at least one loophole making it just a bit harder to get easy access from any legal gun seller at their gun shop or gun show.

Come senators, congressmen…

I’m not the first to point out what follows to anyone and I won’t be the last, but, it needs to be said as often as possible… so, here I go…

All these politicians saying the shit they are saying about the Syrian refugees… like putting certain stipulations on whether they can or can’t come to America… some say only a few thousand… others say none at all… others say, “OK, they can come but not if they are Muslim or even suspected of being Muslim… and the beat goes on… la de da de da da…

But…

Ted Cruz? Wasn’t daddy a Cuban leftist and supported Fidel in the revolución?  And didn’t dear old dad… when his student visa ran out… was granted political asylum? … or, did that just slip your brain?refugee-cartoon-4

Marco Rubio?  Weren’t mummy and daddy illegal immigrants when they had you? Or, does your brain fart when it comes to that and your feelings on the Syrian refugees?

The list is endless because all the candidates and many other politicos… including the donkeys… (Or in this case is it the jackassess?) …have gone on board with restricting the refugees, yet, all have relatives that immigrated to this country for one reason or another or maybe even have skeletons in some of their ancestral closets…

I saved the best for last… or is it the worst?

I give you… Herr Donald Trump…

The man is becoming scarier and scarier and sounding more and more like a Hitler clone every fucking day.

I am serious…

In the last few weeks the Trumper has solidified his growing reputation as a liar and a demagogue… and… in some minds  an intolerant, bigoted, racism snob who grows closer and closer to becoming the reincarnation of pure evilness… no, not Satan… Hitler. Remember?

He randomly creates lurid stories about various groups of folks that become more and more gross every time he opens his yap to utter sound. All so he can spur those who follow him… now, mostly other racists, who are probably mostly white, The problem is… even though his words are lies unto themselves, people believe those words despite even when they are proven wrong… like through those people who fact check his words…trump-tower

People will hold onto the belief that he spoke the truth and will hold fast that his lies are really, really factual truths.

It’s what I call the old “The first thing some people hear is what they will believe no matter if it is eventually proven to be false.”

In no particular order here are the worst of his lies…

At an Alabama rally he said that Muslims were wildly celebrating 9/11…  “I watched in Jersey City, N.J., where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering.”

When he appeared on ABC’s “This Week”, he was told the Jersey City cops said that never happened… Trump doubled down and said… “It was on television. I saw it. I know they don’t like to talk about it, but, it was well covered at the time. There were people over in New Jersey that were watching it, a heavy Arab population, that were cheering as the buildings came down. Not good.”

It never happened… never was anything even remotely close to what he describes occurred… not on any channel… ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN or even Fox…

Or maybe he might be referencing this incident?

“A more rampant rumor of Muslim or Arab-Americans cheering the attacks centered around nearby Paterson, N.J. But that turned out to be just a rumor, spawned by chain emails and perpetuated by shock jock Howard Stern’s radio show.

The Star-Ledger reported that as the rumors spread, ‘Paterson police rushed to South Main Street, the center of the city’s Middle Eastern community.’

‘When we got there, they were all in prayer,’ Paterson Police Chief Lawrence Spagnola said.” (from a Politifact article written by Lauren Carroll on Sunday, November 22nd)

In short… he lied.

He is playing to his audience… mostly racist fools who think that all Muslims are terrorists or at the very least harbor sympathies or loyalties to Muslims who are terrorists. He is pandering to those feeble minds for their allegiance and their votes.springtime for trump

Chris Christie… presently the Governor of NJ and a fellow elephant and prez candidate says… “I don’t recall that. I don’t. It was a pretty emotional time for me because, as I’ve mentioned before, there’s family involved (his wife worked in Manhattan at the time of the attacks), there were, you know, friends involved and so it was a pretty harrowing time. I do not remember that, and so it’s not something that was part of my recollection. I think if it had happened, I would remember it…”

A “Black Lives Matter” supporter who disrupted a Trump speech recently was shoved to the ground by attendees at the Trump stump stop and at least one man punches the guy while a woman kicks the dude while he is on the ground. Trump, never stops stumping to his core and only briefly hesitates to shout out… “Get him the hell out of here! Throw him out.”

Reminiscent of anything… like maybe the brown shirts at Hitler’s rallies and speech sessions?

In his speech he was iterating his ideas on racist and anti-constitutional ideas… like his idea of creating a database to track Muslims in the U.S… by his own words… “I do want surveillance. I will absolutely take database on the people coming in from Syria if we can’t stop it, but we’re going to. So here’s the story just to set it clear: I want surveillance of these people. I want surveillance if we have to and I don’t care. I want surveillance of certain mosques, OK. If, that’s OK? I want surveillance. And you know what? We’ve had it before and we’ll have it again.”bramhall-world-trump-views-immigration

In fact, he has gone so far to say… that the country was “going to have no choice” but to close some mosques because “really bad things are happening, and they’re happening fast.”

All of these inflammatory words regarding Muslims are in addition to his June comments about Mexicans that drew outrage from Latino groups.

He shared a racist meme recently on twitter… he posted a meme with fake crime statistics about black people. In fact, the fact checkers have been reporting that it looks like the meme was originated by Neo-Nazis and was first shared by a sympathizer of Hitler the day before Trump posted it.

When he was called on this… Trump ignored everyone and left the meme for his minions to follow and he kept right on a tweeting his little puny brain off. One NYDN editorial writer… Shaun King… said stuff like what Trump is spewing forth gets people killed… especially, black people.

Checked out what recently happened in Minnesota at Black Lives Matter rally? Go Google it…I’ll wait.

Right… three racist mutherfuckers went dressed up in bullet proof vests and shot up a rally where people were protesting the shooting of a black man by Minneapolis police… five people were wounded… fortunately, reports say none of the wounded was seriously hurt.

Guess Shaun might not be far from the facts, eh?

So what was so racist about his tweet? This… he posted his tweet… “USA Crime Statistics – 2015”… with a picture of a black man in gangster garb… holding a gat with a bandanna and a face mask… and his tweet claims 16% of white people are killed by other whites, while 81% of white people are killed by black people.trump meme

The truth? Most crime happens within a race… black on black… white on white… AND… per the Department of Justice, 84% of white murders are really done by other white peeps.  In fact in 2014, from the FBI’s 2014 report on U.S. homicides, of the 3,021 white folks who were murdered, 2,488 of their murderers were white… that’s 82%.

Chose your Feeb department… they are essentially in agreement… varying only by 1%.

And, did anyone of his fellow elephants have the balls to call Herr Trump on his lies? Nope. Nary a one that I am aware.

Or as Shaun King said… “So far, it’s been crickets.”

The NYDN recently said in an editorial that “For nearly six straight months, no matter how racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, or anti-Muslim Trump gets, he has maintained his lead in the polls. In fact, from all indications, it appears the more his public talk resembles that of a white supremacist, the more rabid and entrenched his support gets. Now, just about 70 days away from the first Republican primary, the joke is on us. While we are all dismissive of his candidacy, a deeply problematic demographic of America has grown to love Trump, not in spite of what we all saw as unelectable gaffes, but because of them. Whether we like it or not, the horrific white supremacy of Donald Trump is a reflection of a very real portion of America. Worse than David Duke, he is the most racist, offensive presidential candidate in modern American history… and he’s in the lead.”

I’ve said this before… be afraid… be very afraid…MLK

People need to speak out… more and more they need to speak out on this sick, sad person… this racist… this liar.. this self important self centered, egoistical, self righteous fool…

Dr. King said it so well…”He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it”… and… “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent on things that matter.”

 

And… that Virginia mayor twerp guy…

He’s gotta be a wanna be Trumper… L’il Trump… I mean… Mayor David Bowers he wants to bar all Syrian refugees from Roanoke… and he uses a wrongly from- the-get-go World War II-era policy…  FDR’s 1942 Executive Order 9066… as his justification… i.e. the FDR practice of the internment of more than 127,000 Japanese Americans in what were more or less concentration camps during World War II.

What all happened is that he issued a written statement, on Roanoke City  letterhead, that says Roanoke should not allow one single Syrian refugee into Roanoke… and… that … well let me let his words speak for him… they do it so damn well and eloquently… much better than I could ever do… “I’m reminded that President Franklin D. Roosevelt felt compelled to sequester Japanese foreign nationals after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and it appears that the threat of harm to America from ISIS now is just as real and serious as that from our enemies then…”

One problem…. Actually many problems… almost no one of any real importance agrees with the stunod.order 9066

At least two American presidents have publicly apologized for what is now called an “egregious mistake…

In 1976, President Gerald Ford said… “I call upon the American people to affirm with me the unhyphenated American promise that we have learned from the tragedy of that long ago experience… forever to treasure liberty and justice for each individual American and resolve that this kind of error shall never be made again.”

On August 10th, 1988, Ronnie the Raygun said… “Yes, the nation was then at war, struggling for its survival and it’s not for us today to pass judgment upon those who may have made mistakes when engaged in that great struggle. Yet we must recognize that the internment of Japanese-Americans was just that: a mistake.”

Also in 1988, Congress issued an apology that came with a “Get-Out-Of-Guilt” buy-out fee of $20,000 in reparations to any Japanese-Americans that survived the camps… they called it the Civil Liberties Act of 1988.

Even President Roosevelt’s great-great-grandson said… “The lesson is that this was a terrible mistake that compromised American values in a fruitless, and indeed counterproductive, quest for security.”

George Takei
George Takei

Among several prominent Japanese-Americans who were outraged by the mayor’s stupid-ass remarks was actor George Takei (most renowned for Star trek) who said on Facebook… “… tens of thousands of lives were ruined, over nothing. It is my life’s mission to never let such a thing happen again in America.”

Takei and his family spent four years in the internment prison camps.

Takei is presently on Broadway performing in a production titled “Allegiance” which is based on his internment camp experiences….

allegiance-Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif.), tweeted…  “(I) Can’t believe this needs clarifying, but the internment of Japanese-Americans was not a model policy.”

Takano’s parents were also in the internment camps.

George Hirose, the co-president of the Japanese-American Citizen’s League’s New York chapter, said… “I strongly resent that he’s making this comparison to Japanese-Americans to justify his racism and ideals.”

And, I say… he and the real Donald Trump need to take their ideas and stuff them where the sun don’t shine and the take a one way magic carpet ride to some far, far, far away universe… maybe the place where hell resides… spew their racist shit to each other until the end of forever.

What Wall?

Ummmm… hey dere, Trumper… ferget that wall of yours…

Why’s that?

Those Mexicans you be so afraid of? They be leaving and going back to Mexico…

Check this out… an article in the NYDN says…leaving USA

“More Mexicans are leaving the United States than coming into the country, according to a Pew Research Center analysis published Thursday… “During the last five years, more than 1 million Mexicans headed south to reestablish their lives in their homeland, while only 870,000 migrated north to the U.S.”border crossing

Why is this? some of the reasons cited included… a better job market in Mexico and fear of living in the U.S. as an undocumented immigrant.

Humph… better jobs in Mexico, huh? Maybe we should think of sneaking over the border the other way and trying to get work down there… jobs around here are a tad scarce and kind of a tough to come by, lately… forget what the Bamster’s job market pressers say… lower unemployment my ass.

And a child shall lead…

A Texas Islamic center was littered with feces and torn pages from the Koran and a little boy…  7-year-old Jack Swanson… emptied his piggy bank and donated his savings to the center.

Jack collected his pennies and with his mom’s help cashed them in for a $20 dollar bill. Then with his mom, Laura Swanson, he went and presented that $20 bucks to representatives of the Islamic Center of Pflugerville.Jack Swanson

Laura says, “It’s disgusting, it’s gross. It doesn’t matter what you believe, or I believe, or he believes, or anybody believes, all faith is important.”

A mosque leader said, “Jack’s $20 are worth $20 million to us because it’s the thought that counts.”

Imagine that… Imagine…

How come this is so wrong…
