Robert Francis O'Rourke......Where's my tacos...?

Why is Robert Francis O'Rourke not being called out for taking the name "Beto"..? A Mexican name. Does he want the people to think he is Mexican, so he might get the Hispanic vote ??

Elizabeth Warren tried that with the see what that led to and where it got her. Just a nickname "Pocahontas"

"Beto" is about as Mexican as I am....Pure Irish/English

Fact check: Could a President Beto O'Rourke confiscate assault weapons?    By Holmes Lybrand, CNN
Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke of Texas has made his position on assault weapons crystal clear. "Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47," O'Rourke said during Thursday's Democratic presidential debate. "We're not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore."

To accomplish this, O'Rourke has proposed a mandatory confiscation of these guns whereby individuals would be compensated for their firearms.

Beyond the thorny politics of this proposal, it raises clear legal and logistical questions, including whether a president has the authority to confiscate people's guns.

Facts First: A president could not issue a blanket confiscation of so-called assault weapons, but they could work with Congress to pass such a law. Constitutionally speaking, that law would likely run into some significant legal trouble.

First, some basic facts. The National Rifle Association has estimated that there are somewhere between 8.5 million and 15 million assault rifles in the US, the organization told McClatchy in 2018. That's about 2% to 4% of all the estimated guns in the US, but it's unclear how many guns would ultimately fall under an assault weapons confiscation.

Part of that has to do with the fuzzy definition of what qualifies as an assault weapon, which can sometimes be based on cosmetic features like a folding stock or an additional handgrip on a rifle.

In 1994, assault weapons were banned from being manufactured but the law did not call for the confiscation of those already in private ownership. That assault weapons ban expired in 2004 and was not renewed under the George W. Bush administration.

O'Rourke's plan, however, not only would include a ban on all sales of so-called assault weapons but also would require owners to sell these guns to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, something the US government has never done before.

Because of precedent set by the Supreme Court, the widespread use and popularity of these guns would almost certainly present legal trouble for O'Rourke's proposal.

In the 2008 case District of Columbia v. Heller, the Supreme Court ruled on whether a ban on handgun possession in the home violated the Second Amendment. It found that it did, holding that the Second Amendment protects guns that are "in common use" and prohibits " 'dangerous and unusual weapons.' "

In response to questions about the constitutionality of his proposal, O'Rourke's campaign told CNN that the confiscation of AR-15-style weapons would be legal, and cited Justice Antonin Scalia's opinion from Heller, that the regulation of "dangerous [and] unusual weapons" does not violate the Second Amendment.

However, Scalia's opinion states that the Second Amendment protects guns in "common use." Given their prevalence, these assault weapons could fall under the definition of being "in common use," and therefore be protected by the Second Amendment.

At least one expert believes that common use interpretation would carry the day. "There's no dispute that these guns meet that definition," Dave Kopel, gun rights scholar and research director of the Independence Institute, told CNN.      

I don't think there was or is a "law" against blackface. Now they just label it a HATE crime and prosecute for that. Hurting someones feelings.....The "snowflake catchall law"...!!

College won’t punish students for blackface photo, citing First Amendment September 12, 2019 By Joshua Rhett Miller

Four college students in Colorado posted a photo of themselves in blackface, setting off outrage online — but they won’t be disciplined because they’re protected by the First Amendment, university officials said.

The photo, which was posted on Instagram over the weekend, shows four unidentified white Colorado State University students in blackface with a caption reading “Wakanda forevaa,” a reference to Marvel’s “Black Panther” hit film.

The image was quickly blasted by critics who demanded that university officials get involved.

“Anybody that tries to justify this behavior is equally as ignorant and offensive,” one woman wrote on Facebook.

One man who said he attended the university posted on Facebook that the image was “not surprising” at all, while another detractor characterized it as “disgusting and absolutely unacceptable” as they called for consequences, a Facebook thread shows.

But university officials insist their hands are tied, saying that personal social media accounts aren’t under its jurisdiction.

“Our community members — students, faculty and staff — can generally post whatever they wish to post on their personal online accounts in accordance with their First Amendment rights,” CSU president Joyce McConnell wrote in a statement released Tuesday. “This recent post runs counter to our principles of community, but it does not violate any CSU rule or regulation, and the First Amendment prohibits the university from taking any punitive action against those in the photo.”

Ultra-Liberal Actress Alyssa Milano Admits To Owning Two Guns For 'Self Defense' 09/11/2019 Source: American Update by: AU Staff 

Ultra-Liberal Actress Alyssa Milano Admits To Owning Two Guns For 'Self Defense'
Ultra-liberal actress and gun control activist Alyssa Milano made a shocking admission Tuesday night during a debate with Texas Senator Ted Cruz: she owns two guns herself for self defense. As Breitbart reports:
Actress and gun control activist Alyssa Milano revealed she has two guns in her home for self-defense during a debate Tuesday evening with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

The debate was held in Cruz’s Capitol Hill office, where Milano and Fred Guttenberg — whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime was killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting in Parkland, Florida — pressed the senator on various gun control proposals...

Around 13 minutes into the discussion, Guttenberg said he was offended by Cruz’s argument that these gun controls would erode Americans’ rights to self-defense. “That’s a load of BS,” he said. “Nobody’s trying to remove your right to self-defense.”

“By the way,” Milano interjected, “I have two guns in my household for self-defense, just so you know.”
This admission from Milano, long known for her advocacy for gun-grabbing laws, is simply stunning. She seems to be fully embracing her own hypocrisy, owning weapons for self defense while encouraging the government to pass laws to strip other law-abiding Americans of their own 2nd amendment rights.

Man Who Trained School Shooters Was Hired By Obama, Tied to DNC Father who trained kids to carry out mass shootings linked to former president By: Jay Greenberg |@NeonNettle on 10th August 2018

Following the shocking discovery of a training camp in New Mexico in which a father was training 11 children to carry out school shootings, evidence has emerged that the man has ties to Barack Obama and the DNC.
Last week, law enforcement officers searching a rural compound for a missing 3-year-old boy didn't locate him but found eleven other children in filthy conditions and hardly any food, a sheriff announced on Saturday. According to Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe, the children, ranging in age from 1 to 15, were removed from the compound in the small community of Amalia, New Mexico, and turned over to state child-welfare workers. Investigators later confirmed that the compound was a training camp run by 39-year-old Siraj Wahhaj who was preparing the children to carry out large-scale shooting attacks in American schools.

#NeverForget Rashida Tlaib’s Palestinian pals celebrating 9-11 in East Jerusalem  

Hard to believe it’s been eighteen years. But in 2019 when actually have Democrats who would make excuses for the same terrorists who carried out the 9/11 attack that killed 3.000 Americans. One of them is Rashida Tlaib, the raging racist from Michigan. She always bemoans the plight of Palestinians in Israel. So let’s take a look back and see how Tlaib’s pals reacted after news about the World Trade Center towers came down in East Jerusalem:

#NeverForget Rashida Tlaib's Palestinian pals celebrating 9-11 in East Jerusalem
Of course, it’s not just Rashida Tlaib who makes excuses for Palestinians behavior like this. It’s basically the entire Democrat party. From Ilhan Omar to Chuck Schumer to Botox face drunk Pelosi, to all 20 or so candidate running for the Democrat nomination, Rashida Tlaib’s views are basically the entire Democrat party. Defending crap like this.

Came across this article on my Wifes facebook page....Right on point.......!!

My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity Around Us!

I'm sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis (Florida) trying to think of what to write about. I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of presidential candidates calling for policies to "fix" the so-called injustices of capitalism. I put my phone down and continue to look around.

I see people talking freely, working on their MacBook's, ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me. We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we've become completely blind to it.

Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose.These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we don't give them a second thought.

We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty One Times!!!

Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards. Yet, in a time where we can order a product off Amazon with one click and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are unappreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful. ??

Our unappreciation is evident as the popularity of socialist policies among my generation continues to grow. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said to Newsweek talking about the millennial generation, "An entire generation, which is now becoming one of the largest electorates in America, came of age and never saw American prosperity."

Never saw American prosperity! Let that sink in.

When I first read that statement, I thought to myself, that was quite literally the most entitled and factually illiterate thing I've ever heard in my 26 years on this earth. Many young people agree with her, which is entirely misguided.

My generation is being indoctrinated by a mainstream narrative to actually believe we have never seen prosperity. I know this first hand, I went to college, let's just say I didn't have the popular opinion, but I digress.

Why then, with all of the overwhelming evidence around us, evidence that I can even see sitting at a coffee shop, do we not view this as prosperity? We have people who are dying to get into our country.

People around the world destitute and truly impoverished. Yet, we have a young generation convinced they've never seen prosperity, and as a result, we elect some politicians who are dead set on taking steps towards abolishing capitalism.

Why? The answer is this,?? my generation has only seen prosperity. We have no contrast. We didn't live in the great depression, or live through two world wars, the Korean War, The Vietnam War or we didn't see the rise and fall of socialism and communism.

We don't know what it's like to live without the internet, without cars, without smartphones. We don't have a lack of prosperity problem. We have an entitlement problem, an ungratefulness problem, and it's spreading like a plague."

I know exactly where I was.....

'Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)' by Alan Jackson 

Shame to say it but......Sanctuary cities and states are putting you and your fellow citizens at risk....By allowing these CRIMINALS to walk the streets. They shouldn't even be in this country, BUT......If the police had cooperated with ICE, this wouldn't have happened....(along with a lot of other rapes and murders that have been committed by people in our country ILLEGALLY )

Law Blocked Sheriff From Telling ICE About Release Of Man Who Later Shot Deputy  - Blue Lives Matter Holly Matkin

The jail had him months ago for assault with a deadly weapon, then the courts let him go on probation, but state law blocked the sheriff from telling ICE. Then he went on to create more victims in his horribly violent crime spree.    

Guadalupe Lopez-Herrera ambushed Merced County Sheriff's Sergeant Clint Landrum on Sept. 4. Dos Palos, CA – A Merced County sheriff’s sergeant was repeatedly shot by a wanted violent offender who is also an illegal alien, according to the sheriff.

“We had him in our custody in January of this year,” Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke said during a
press conference. “And because of the folks in [the state capitol of] Sacramento eliminating our ability to cooperate with ICE, we could not turn him over.”

Mitch McConnell is doing a lot of talking about Social Security RUNNING OUT of money.....Read the article below...,The figures may not be exact, but you should get the general idea....

Who died before they collected Social Security?



Remember, not only did you and I contribute to Social Security but your employer did too.
It totaled 15% of your income before taxes.
If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that's close to $220,500

Read that again

Did you see where the Government paid in one single penny?
We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a government bank to insure you and I, that we would have a retirement check from the money we put in, not the Government.
Now they are calling the money we put in an entitlement when we reach the age to take it back.

If you calculate the future invested value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer's contribution) at a simple 5% interest (less than what the Government pays on the money that it borrows).

After 49 years of working you'd have $892,919.98. If you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you're 95 if you retire at age 65) and that's with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit!

If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you'd have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month


Entitlement my foot; I paid cash for my social security insurance!
Just because they borrowed the money for other government spending, doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!!

Remember Congressional benefits?

--- free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days.
Now that's welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement payments entitlements?

They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives, and now, when it's time for us to collect, the government is running out of money.

Why did the government borrow from it in the first place?
It was supposed to be in a locked box, not part of the general fund.
Sad isn't it?

SUE THE PANTS OFF THEM......Oh...It's San Francisco...they probably don't have any pants on....!!

NRA Responds With Lawsuit After San Francisco Labels Them Terrorists     byHolly Matkin

National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre touted the lawsuit as a stand against “those who attack the NRA."

San Francisco, CA – The National Rifle Association (NRA) has filed a lawsuit against the city and county of San Francisco after the city’s board of supervisors declared the group to be a “domestic terrorist organization.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on Monday, according to the Associated Press.

The NRA alleged that city leaders violated the group’s right to free speech as a political ploy, and that it is attempting to “blacklist” those who are associated with the gun-rights lobby.

The group argued that the declaration discriminates against citizens “based on the viewpoint of their political speech,” NPR reported.

The resolution was passed with “the purpose of suppressing the NRA’s pro-Second Amendment viewpoint,” the lawsuit read, according to CNN. “Defendants undertook such unlawful conduct with the intent to obstruct, chill, deter, and retaliate against the NRA's core political speech."

The NRA said that the measure is “obviously unconstitutional,” and that it qualifies as a “system of informal censorship.”

The lawsuit also requested that the court “instruct elected officials that freedom of speech means you cannot silence or punish those with whom you disagree,” according to the Associated Press.

Colorado Teen Suspended by School For Target Shooting With His Mom   By Eddie Johnson- Sep 5, 2019

A Colorado teen has been suspended and harassed by the local school board for going target shooting with his mother.

Nate Evans is a junior at Loveland High School in Loveland, CO.

He posted this short video of a target shooting outing with his mother recently.

A nervous nellie called the local police and reported Nate as a danger to the community.

Police banged on the door and Nate’s mom Justine was forced to explain that it was a perfectly legal target shooting outing and that Nate was not a “threat”.

This was not good enough for the Loveland school bureaucrats who demanded Justine appear at a “threat assessment hearing” to defend her son from this charge.

In addition, the school refused to let Nate take home work to keep up in class during his suspension.

Aside from their harassment regarding homework, the school is actually legally correct in demanding the hearing.

It’s mandatory when they receive a “Safe 2 Tell” denouncement. “Safe 2 Tell” is a program designed to allow students to report threats to schools.

However, as you can see from this case, it has made it safe only to harass law-abiding gun owners.

So-called “red flag” laws will have a similar effect if they become widespread. Essentially, anyone would be able to harass a gun owner by simply calling in an anonymous tip and let the bureaucratic forces grind away at them.
$6 million of Soros hate 


Totalitarian, One-World Government billionaire George Soros is spending $6 million+ on a scheme to pass laws that would hold gun manufacturers legally responsible for street crime.

Here's how he plans to do it.

Congress Members To Wear Barcodes So Lobbyists Can Scan Prices, Self-Checkout

WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a move to make purchasing congresspeople easier and faster for lobbyists, Congress voted to approve a new measure that calls for congresspeople to wear barcodes on their foreheads so lobbyists, activists, and corporations can simply scan them and self-checkout.

Self-checkout machines will be installed at all exits of the Capitol Building, so once they've added congresspeople to their cart, lobbyists can pay right on the way out.

"Purchasing congresspeople used to be a time-consuming, expensive process," said a Planned Parenthood representative. "Now, we can simply walk through Congress, scan all the congresspeople that are for sale, and checkout without having to interact with any humans."

"We hate humans---like, a lot," the PP rep added.

One major military-industrial complex lobby group, Americans For Bigger Bombs, said they are also in support of the new move.

"When you need to make a quick pit stop at our nation's legislative body to purchase a few congresspeople to start a new war, you need to do it fast," said one AFBB lawyer. "An attack on Iran can't wait while you wheel and deal, wine and dine, and negotiate endlessly. Now, I can just scan and go."
