Beto O’Rourke has been trying to gain some traction for his presidential campaign by making increasingly aggressive statements about gun control. From “nobody wants to take your guns away” to “Hell yes, we will take your AR-15.” In a disastrous “Ask Me Anything” event on Reddit, O’Rourke got pummeled with questions about his new position. One questioner asked O’Rourke how he’d go about confiscating the roughly 10 million AR-15s currently in people’s homes. O’Rourke’s reply — “Americans will comply with the law” — was downvoted by more than 13,000 Reddit users. Two questions later, Beto had dropped off the Reddit program.

In presidential campaign history, someone like O'Rourke would disappear from the media's interest quickly. Now, however, the least of the candidates. Perhaps the very worst of the D list is Tulsi Gabbard, who even gets Fox News attention, I guess because she is not ugly like Warren, Klobachar (whose drunken father must have punched her in the jaw and broke it) Kamala Sutra, the Jamaican-Canadian-Indian non-American trollop, and the midget from NY, Gillibrand. Will the fake Mexican run as an Independent? That would be fun to watch. He could capture 1 or 2 per cent of the vote, which could be significant.

Don't forget hammers. Remember when their focus was on handguns "Saturday Night Specials"and rifles were going to be left alone? Clearly they won't leave any means of resisting an oppressive government in the hands of the people. If they thought Trump was a dictator the last thing they would want to do would be to disarm the people, particularly focused on the arms which are closest to those the government can turn on the people.

If there's one thing Democrats have always wanted to get their hands on, it's workers' private retirement accounts -- the 401(k)s, the Roth IRAs, the Social Security checks. The idea of course, is that that big pot of stored savings can be spent now for leftist social programs instead of raising taxes and let what happens, happen, to people who've saved for retirement. We saw it in 2010, in the Democrats' effort to 'Argentinize' U.S. 401(k)s and replace them with a 'guaranteed retirement accounts,' using the private savings to bail out failing public pensions. It fell flat, but that didn't stop Democrats.

Democrats as a protection racket?
Ed Buck makes it a trifecta

The New York Times has been trying to dismiss the arrest of Ed Buck, a Democratic fatcat who had a thing for injecting young black men with drugs before paying them for sex, as a "small-time Democratic donor," but the facts on the ground suggest he was a rather big one. And maybe that's a function of the paper's desire to protect its masters, the Democrats. They aren't known as Democratic operatives with bylines for nothing. Fox Business has a rundown: While Buck once identified himself as a conservative Republican, according to the Los Angeles Times, he became a national figure when he spearheaded the effort to impeach Arizona’s

Woke Washington state has produced a bumper crop of public school malfeasance. Just yesterday, a Longview public school bus driver who transported 90 kids in two trips was credibly reported to be driving like a drunk -- weaving, running red lights, and stinking of alcohol -- according to the terrified school children who were stuck on that bus without choice, with one of them calling 911. The cops eventually showed up, found the driver, smelled the alcohol, and made an arrest. The school itself put the driver on paid leave. According to WTSP:

President Trump made a whirlwind tour through San Diego, exuding optimism, vim and vigor. He was in full command at his press conference at the border wall, and the local press coverage, at least as seen on television, was strikingly positive. I watched the live coverage on the local stations here in San Diego. They just let him talk - a fairly long version is here and a shortened shareable form is here: A local Fox News affiliate has a great second segment: ABC's KGTV local affiliate's television coverage, including the post-visit analysis, was even better,

Elizabeth Warren promises that if elected, the first thing she will do as president is push through a “sweeping” anti-corruption plan that will “take power away from the wealthy and the well-connected in Washington and put it back where it belongs — in the hands of the people.” Where have we heard such promises before? Oh, right, from pretty much every candidate running for president. Barack Obama said in 2008 that if he were elected, he would “launch the most sweeping ethics reform in U.S. history. We will make government more open, more accountable and more responsive to the problems of the American people.” Bill Clinton in 1992 promised to

We live in seemingly divisive times. Politicians are at each other’s throats. Talking heads on the network news explain to us all the reasons we should hate and mistrust each other. Confidence in public institutions is at an all-time low. There seems to be nothing but bad news. Then we notice an oft-neglected holiday on our calendars: Constitution Day. This federal holiday commemorates the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. And as we all learned in high school civics class, the Constitution defines the structure of our federal government. It is the most remarkable political charters in history. This may not mean much

Kamala Harris has always been known for her lean and hungry, pushy, grabby, ambition, which includes a willingness to sleep her way to the top to get what she wants. Her political start began as a social mountaineer with San Francisco's old-money Pacific Heights set dating from her 20s and then just moved onward and upward. That's not sitting well with California's lizardy old-money senior Senator, Dianne Feinstein, who knows that establishment well. And so, she's taking some action, as Fox News reports: According to reports, Feinstein, the senior senator from the Golden State, will throw a fundraiser next month

Illinois clearly is the pioneer in the not-yet-existent deceased rights movement, which I have heard is having trouble with turnout for its rallies. But if the dead ever do rise from their graves in a zombie apocalypse, as so often dramatized on cable television, they will no doubt demand that other states follow the lead of Illinois. They're not dead, they're a constituency: Illinois Policy reveals that the state has spent $4.6 million on Medicaid for dead people:

Here's something we can agree with the Democratic Party base on: Presidential candidate Julian Castro is loathesome. According to Nate Silver's outfit, Five Thirty Eight, Castro was the big loser of the third Democratic debate, based on his sneakily age-ist and downright dishonest attack on Joe Biden. Castro lost big points on favorability and the willingness of even left-wing voters to vote for him, according to Five Thirty Eight: So after Ipsos polled voters before and after the debate, we calculated the change in candidates’ net favorability (favorable rating minus unfavorable rating).

Democratic debates are always contests to determine which candidate is the most contemptible. Based on his dishonest behavior in debate three, you could argue that Julian Castro, way down at the bottom end of the debate stage, took that 'honor.' According to an excellent, level-headed analysis by Aaron Blake in the Washington Post: The former Housing and Urban Development secretary clearly came ready to go at this debate, and he went hard at Biden. But his biggest optical win didn’t have substance to back it up. He accused Biden of saying his plan would not automatically enroll people in his public health care option. When Biden denied it, Castro was apoplectic.

From the first minute of last night’s truly intolerable Democratic debate, a candidate for the world’s most powerful office started things rolling downhill with a startling assertion about last month’s horrific shootings in El Paso: “22 people were killed, dozens more grievously injured by a man … inspired to kill by our president.” (Emphasis added) Later in the same debate, a sitting U.S. Senator from the nation’s largest state added the following over-the-top observation about these vile murders: “People asked me … ‘do you think Trump is responsible for what happened?’ And I said, ‘Well, look, I mean, obviously, he didn’t pull the trigger. But he’s certainly been tweeting out the ammunition.’”

A 59-year-old man has died from injuries suffered during an attack by two teenage brothers prompted by the man's refusal to give them a dollar. John Weed was attending the Great Frederick Fair in Maryland on Friday with his family when he was approached by the teens, ages 15 and 16. According to the prosecution, the 15-year-old sucker-punched Weed after he refused to give them a dollar, knocking him unconscious.

"Democrats say we have guns in America because of 'corruption,'" former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declared on Twitter on Sept. 12. "No, we have guns because it's our God-given right enshrined in the Constitution." (Snip) The second part of that tweet is silly; God didn't give people the right to own AR-15s any more than a divine entity gave Americans the right to own automobiles without seat belts. The first part of Sanders’ tweet, though, is mostly accurate. The National Rifle Association's money doesn't corrupt Republican legislators. Instead, Republicans oppose gun control because conservative political identity is today inseparable from guns. Identity is a deeper motivator

Speaking to reporters last week, she added that AR-15s use a ".50 caliber" bullet that ought to be licensed. "I've held an AR-15 in my hand," she said. "I wish I hadn’t. It is as heavy as 10 boxes that you might be moving. And the bullet that is utilized, a .50 caliber, these kinds of bullets need to be licensed and do not need to be on the streets."

The TV people put on a TV show to praise TV, but TV viewers tuned out in droves. The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards on the Fox network hit a record low with a dismal 5.8 household Nielsen rating — a 22% drop from last year, Deadline reported. Last year, the show pulled a 7.4 rating (10.2 million viewers). The latest show got crushed by NBC’s "Sunday Night Football," even though it featured the undefeated Los Angeles Rams versus the lowly Cleveland Browns. TV's biggest night included all the virtue-signaling viewers have come to expect from awards shows like the Oscars and Grammys.

Venus was once a habitable planet with liquid water on our surface, much like our own, until runaway climate change turned it into a hell world. New NASA computer models suggest that until 700 million years ago, temperatures ranged from 20C to 50C on the surface. NASA’s Pioneer Venus mission spotted hints that the planet had once had oceans in the 1980s - but at the time, scientists believe that it had evaporated quickly. But new research by the Nasa Goddard Institute for Space Science suggests that the ocean may have lasted for billions of years. The researchers believe that

Sen. Bernie Sanders on Tuesday proposed an “extreme wealth tax” on the highest-income Americans, along with a “national wealth registry” that he said would help prevent them from avoiding the tax. The tax rate would start at 1 percent on net worth of more than $32 million and rise with income above that, topping out at 8 percent on wealth over $10 billion. Sanders’ Democratic presidential campaign said the tax would raise $4.35 trillion over a decade and would be used to fund "Medicare for All", along with his plans for affordable housing and universal childcare.
