Green Beret Posts Horrifying Warning About Ultimate Outcome of Gun Control

As an active duty special forces soldier who’s fought in the world’s most decrepit hellholes, proud Green Beret and mixed martial arts fighter Tim Kennedy has a deep appreciation for the rights afforded to him as an American, including the right to bear arms.

Granted to every American citizen by the U.S. Constitution, this right now faces constant attacks by those who seek to subvert our freedom. In an Instagram post published Saturday, Kennedy explained why we must NEVER allow this to happen.

“This is why we need guns,” he explained in a post that depicted people from across the world being brutalized and oppressed by their own governments.

Gun control certainly worked for the likes of deceased Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, in that it allowed him to acquire the power needed to carry out the Holocaust and wage war against the rest of the civilized world.

Parkland Student Calls for Confiscation of All Semi-Auto Guns — Then She Gets Hit with Fact Check

It didn’t take long for famed-student Emma Gonzalez, from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, to use Sunday’s massacre at a Tennessee Waffle House to blast the National Rifle Association and guns while advocating for more gun control.

James Woods’ Body Slam to ‘Honey Bunny’ Hillary Has the Internet Cheering … and a Little Scared

Woods seized on a book from New York Times political reporter Amy Chozick on Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential aspirations to blow the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee out of the water as convincingly as President Donald Trump did on the night of the election.

Clinton was quoted in the new book, “Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling,” lamenting election night that “they were never going to let me be president.” . . .

“Your corruption was not a flesh wound, but a systemic rot of your entire being. YOU were never going to let you be president, because you are a greedy, lying grifter. You weren’t born a Clinton, but you took to being one like a duck to swamp water,” Woods tweeted, linking to a Fox News article on the book.

Woods’ tweet proved to be excellent fodder for all the “deplorables” who see Hillary as little more than evil reincarnated.

Russian Lawyer Asks Mueller an Important Question

By AP. A Russian lawyer who discussed sanctions with Donald Trump Jr. in New York during his father’s 2016 campaign for the U.S. presidency said Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller has not contacted her yet.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Natalia Veselnitskaya also detailed her recent meeting in Berlin with investigators from the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee. Like Mueller, the committee is investigating allegations of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.

Veselnitskaya met in June 2016 with then-candidate Donald Trump’s son, his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort, his campaign chairman at the time, Paul Manafort, after Trump Jr. was told the Russian lawyer had potentially incriminating information about Hillary Clinton.

Can Mueller Be More Honest Than His Colleagues?

By The Hill. I think it’s entirely possible — likely, in fact — that Robert Mueller is an honest broker and performing his job as special counsel without fear or favor. That he will investigate until he reaches the end of the logical trail and present his legitimate findings accordingly, recommending prosecution of those who may have violated our nation’s laws and betrayed our trust.

But considering the information that’s become available in the past year, we would be remiss if we didn’t at least consider other possible scenarios. Here’s one of them, posited amidst the context of news that has come to light. It has to do with a special counsel probe with the appearance of several important conflicts of interest.

There are many excellent agents within our intelligence agencies who deserve great credit and respect. But we also know that some bad actors within those agencies have a daunting record of problems that include lying about evidence; conducting politically-motivated acts; botched terrorism investigations; improper surveillance of private citizens, members of Congress and journalists; providing incorrect information to Congress; and illegally withholding evidence.

When top FBI officials spoke privately of needing an “insurance policy” in case Trump were elected, what if they felt this “policy” were necessary not just because they hated Trump, or because they believed Trump was illegally conspiring with Russia? What if they feared what a Trump administration might uncover within the intelligence agencies … and what the administration might do to take steps to reform them? Go up against the intelligence agencies, and as top Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) warned, “They have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”

Mueller isn’t exactly an unconflicted player in this scenario. He was FBI director from 2001-2013 when many alleged abuses occurred and — theoretically — would have a vested interest in protecting his former colleagues and his own legacy by preventing a Trump administration from poking around into alleged intelligence agency misdeeds.

IRS Pushed to Bill Churches $1 Billion

A demand from atheists that the IRS bill churches and other religious organizations a total of some $1 billion would violate freedom of worship and destroy many congregations, a new court brief contends.

In a case now at the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, churches are seeking to overturn a stunning district court decision by Judge Barbara Crabb . . .

It provides that a housing allowance is not considered taxable income when the house is for the convenience of the employer. While pastors do benefit, the tax deduction also is available for workers who live overseas, employees of educational institutes, any member or former member of the uniformed services, government workers living overseas, any American citizen living abroad and others.

Crabb’s verdict in the case brought against Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and others by the Freedom From Religion Foundation found that while the exemption is valid for secular employees, it should not be available for Christian pastors, setting up a discriminatory standard for the benefit . . .

A brief in the case filed by the Becket Fund on behalf of Chris Butler, a pastor from the South Side of Chicago, contends ending the housing allowance “would discriminate against religious groups by treating them worse than many other secular employees who receive similar tax treatment.” (Read more from “IRS Pushed to Bill Churches $1 Billion” HERE)

Warning: State About to Ban Bible Sales

By WND. Liberty Counsel, which defends religious and civil rights, Friday warned that the state of California effectively is about to ban the sale of Bibles.

A bill in the legislature, approved 50-18 in an Assembly vote this week, would forbid counselors from telling a gender-confused male client that he is actually a man. . .

The bill declares “advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual” is fraudulent business practice.

“If approved, victims of sexual abuse can no longer get counseling if they develop (as often happens) unwanted urges to engage in same-sex behavior or become gender confused,” Liberty Counsel said.

“This bill would also make it unlawful for any person to sell books, including the Bible, counseling services, or anything else that directs people to trust in Jesus Christ to help them overcome unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion.” (Read more from “Warning: State About to Ban Bible Sales” HERE)

China Banning Online Bible Sales ‘Absurd’

By The Baptist Press. China is purportedly the largest publisher of Bibles in the world, but the communist nation has now apparently blocked online Bible purchases for its residents.
Beginning last week, searches for Bibles at leading online retailers in China came up empty, according to reports from The New York Times and CNN.

The reports indicate certain Bible studies or illustrated storybooks were available through searches. Two merchants told CNN the Bible could be purchased through private messages, but public listings were now “impossible.”

China has historically restricted in-person Bible sales to state-sponsored channels and government-run churches, but online sales presented a loophole of sorts for Christians within the growing underground church movement.

That loophole has now apparently been closed as part of increased religious freedom restrictions — particularly against Christians. (Read more from “China Banning Online Bible Sales ‘Absurd'” HERE)

Turns out, Feds Are Wasting Billions Protecting ‘Endangered’ Animals That Are Just Fine

The federal government has spent hundreds of millions in taxpayer money to protect species listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) that were never in danger of extinction, according to a Heritage Foundation report.

Robert Gordon, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation’s Center for Free Markets and Regulatory Reform, studied the Endangered Species Act and the federal bureaus in charge of administering and regulating it. Gordon released his report, which focuses on inconsistencies and waste in the listing and de-listing of species, Tuesday.

Former-President Richard Nixon signed the ESA into law in 1973, following the president’s push for stronger environmental protections the previous year. Nixon charged his “environmental awakening” for stronger environmental regulation in areas such as sewage, air and noise just two years after the Environmental Protection Agency’s founding.

Since the ESA’s enactment, 1,661 U.S. plants and animals have qualified for federal protection as either “threatened” or “endangered” — or close to extinction. Forty-five years later, slightly more than two percent, or 38 species, have been officially de-listed as “recovered.” About half of the officially “recovered” species where never actually in danger of extinction but placed on the list because of bad or missing data or taxonomic — the way animals are classified into species and subspecies, errors — according to Gordon . . .

Often when conducting preliminary research often serving to justify whether a species is listed or not, federal researchers miscount the actual number of animals in a population or species and reach a conclusion regularly off by a factor of 10 — sometimes more.

This County Just Declared Itself a ‘Sanctuary’ for Gun Owners

By The Daily Wire. On Monday, Effingham County, Illinois declared itself a “sanctuary” for gun owners. In a resolution passed 8-1, the country board directed their employees to neglect enforcement of any new state gun regulations that “unconstitutionally restrict the Second Amendment,” reports Fox News.

Effingham County board member David Campbell told “Fox & Friends First” that the county decided it was “time for someone to take a hard stand” against “the increasing number of House and Senate bills coming through attacking our Second Amendment” rights.

Campbell, who helped in crafting the resolution, said he received inspiration from a similar measure recently passed in Iroquois County, which is also located in the state. (Read more from “This County Just Declared Itself a ‘Sanctuary’ for Gun Owners” HERE)

‘We’re Taking a Stand’: Illinois County Declares Itself a Sanctuary for Gun Owners

By Fox News Insider. Effingham County, Illinois, on Monday became a “sanctuary county” for gun owners.

The county board passed the resolution on an 8-1 vote and directed its employees not to enforce any new state law that would “unconstitutionally restrict the Second Amendment.”

Effingham County State’s Attorney Bryan Kibler said that the action is largely symbolic and will not control decision-making by law enforcement.

On “Fox & Friends First,” Effingham County board member David Campbell and Kibler joined Heather Childers to explain the thinking behind the resolution and what it means for the county.

Campbell said they decided to “take a stand” because they’ve seen an increasing number of state House and Senate bills that attack the Second Amendment.

“[We] decided it’s time for someone to take a hard stand,” Campbell said, explaining that he modeled the resolution after a similar one that was adopted by Iroquois County, Illinois. (Read more from “‘We’re Taking a Stand’: Illinois County Declares Itself a Sanctuary for Gun Owners” HERE)

Caravan of Refugees Arrives at U.S.-Mexico Border; Refugees Ask for Asylum

By The Daily Wire. Remember that caravan that the mainstream media — and Mexican officials — said was no longer heading to the U.S.-Mexico border?

Yeah, they arrived at the border.

The story of the marching caravan — 1,500 refugees strong — was all over the news for a week, with the MSM breathlessly covering the plight of the poor refugees who surely deserved free entry into the United States. But the story disappeared as outlets reported that the caravan was no longer heading to the border . . .

When the caravan crossed the Mexican-Guatemalan border last month, group leaders praised Mexican officials for stepping aside. “Refugee Caravan knocking down borders yesterday in Huehuetan! Immigration agents abandoned the post when they knew we were coming. The people celebrated this first little victory!” they said on Facebook.

While Mexico said at the time that it “does not make immigration decisions for the United States or any other nation,” President Trump said Mexico does make decisions that affect the U.S. (Read more from “Caravan of Refugees Arrives at U.S.-Mexico Border; Refugees Ask for Asylum” HERE)

50 Caravan Migrants Reach US-Mexico Border

By Newsmax. The first 50 Central American migrants in a caravan that set out from southern Mexico in late March have reached the U.S. border, now secured with help from National Guard personnel sent by President Donald Trump.

Since peaking at around 1,500 people, the migrant caravan has dwindled under pressure from Trump and Mexican migration authorities, who vowed to separate those migrants with a right to stay in Mexico from those who did not.

Some of those migrants began arriving in the Mexican border city of Tijuana on Wednesday and have requested asylum in the United States.

“Since yesterday, some began to cross into the United States to turn themselves in from Tijuana and request asylum. We understand more of (the migrants) will do the same,” said Jose Maria Garcia, director of Juventud 2000, an organization dedicated to assisting migrants.

Dems Sue Russia, Trump, and Assange for ‘Damages’ from 2016 Vote

With the high level of vitriol still emanating from Democrats over the results of the 2016 presidential election, a lawsuit was inevitable.

And now a suit has been filed in Manhattan by the Democratic National Committee accusing Russia, President Trump, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and others of working together to “undermine” Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

The suit names the Russian Federation; general staff of the armed forces of the Russian Federation; GRU Operative using pseudonym ‘Guccifer 2.0’; Aras Iskenerovich Agalarov; Emin Araz Agalarov; Joseph Mifsud; Wikileaks; Julian Assange; Donald J. Trump for President Inc.; Donald J. Trump Jr.; Paul J. Manafort Jr.; Roger J. Stone Jr.; Jared C. Kushner; George Papadopoulos; Richard W. Gates III; and John Does 1-10.”

It alleges violations of various statutes, including Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, RICO, RICO Conspiracy, Wiretap Act, Stored Communications Act, Digital Millennium Copyright Act, the Defend Trade Secrets Act, Uniform Trade Secrets Act, Trespass, conspiracy and Virginia Computer Crimes Act.

The DNC claims that in the Trump campaign, Russia “found a willing and active partner in this effort” to launch “a brazen attack on the 2016 election.” . . .

Tom Perez, the DNC chairman, said: “This constituted an act of unprecedented treachery: the campaign of a nominee for president of the United States in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency.” (Read more from “Dems Sue Russia, Trump, and Assange for ‘Damages’ from 2016 Vote” HERE)
