'Important for Democrats to demonstrate that
they’re not against gun ownership': 2020
candidates face fraught balancing act

Original Article

California Sen. Kamala Harris says she owns a gun "for personal safety."South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg talks up his experiences carrying assault-style weapons while a Navy Reserve officer deployed in Afghanistan. And former Vice President Joe Biden boasts of owning two shotguns, a .12 and .20 gauge. Less than three months out from the early nominating contests, these and other 2020 Democrats frequently share with voters their experience handling guns. Yet in the next sentence, candidates talk up new gun control measures they would push as president, a position demanded by left-leaning voters who will have a big say

Too late. The night after Beto said, "Hell yes we are going to take your guns" in the debate, he spilled the beans on national Morning TV that they are planning to get around the second amendment using the commerce clause!!!! BIG BIG BIG

In other words they're going to lie to your face (again) to get elected or reelected, then do whatever they want.

Democrats crave power over the people. They cannot have that power if people have the ability to strike out against oppressive government as the Founding Fathers wisely intended.

Journalists just do not understand guns. Shotguns are not designated as .12gauge or .20 gauge as if it were a caliber. The “gauge” in shotguns is how many lead pellets that fit inside the bore are equal to one pound with 12-gauge meaning 12 pellets. Therefore the HIGHER the gauge, the SMALLER the bore, meaning a 20-gauge is smaller than a 12-gauge. The one exception is the .410 shotgun which is actually the caliber of the barrel.

Biden needs two guns: One to shoot off his mouth, and the other to shoot himself in the foot.

Very likely the phoniest pandering political photo I've ever seen was that French Frankenstein John Kerry strutting around with a shotgun and in his Elmer Fudd outfit to try and convince hunters he's one of them. The fakeness was so blatant it should have been embarrassing.

It has been true for decades that the only way for a dem to get elected is to lie about their intentions. They get away with it because their propaganda media provides cover for them and never holds them accountable when, once elected, they do what they claimed they would not.

If Mayor Pete was serving in Afghanistan, he was not carrying an "assault-style" weapon. It was an actual Assault Rifle or Carbine based on the M-16.

This should be interesting. If the state gives its approval, the town of Brookline, Massachusetts will gain a lot of new voters in the future. At a town meeting last week, residents voted to extend the right to vote in municipal elections to 16 and 17-year-olds. The vote wasn’t even close either, with the measure passing by a two to one margin. The reasons given by supporters are a bit on the dodgy side, but we’ll get to that in a moment. (CBS Boston) The town of Brookline is seeking approval from the state to lower the voting age to 16.

The family of a fallen soldier now has a place to call home just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday this year. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation — an organization named after a New York City firefighter who died while saving others during the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center — awarded three mortgage-free homes to Gold Star families this year, and Jillian Hinton’s family was one of the families chosen. “There are no words on earth that can actually describe the level of excitement and gratitude I have,” Hinton told WFLA.

A recent article in the Associated Press is now getting roundly mocked for featuring an etiquette expert who suggested that people hosting Thanksgiving provide an actual safe space for people to discuss the current political issues.The article by Dan Sewell, titled “On the Thanksgiving menu: Turkey, with a side of impeachment,” argued that politics are just too polarizing in today’s America and will surely be a topic around the dinner table come Thursday’s holiday. Rather than skirt the issue, Sewell suggests people should discuss politics both openly and safely. After quoting several individuals who fear how politics could cloud the day, Sewell employed Elaine Swann, “a Los Angeles-based etiquette coach,”

As so many of us drive home this week, take the train across states, or fly across the country, we’ll have a little extra time to think about and reflect on what we’re thankful for this Thanksgiving Day. Family, friends and home will come to mind for most of us.And these are all legitimate things to be grateful for, to be sure. But if we drill down a little deeper, perhaps we can ask: What made those things possible? Who and what even brought them into being? How about our country? There are many answers to that. There are all those who fought and bled for us.

A House vote to impeach President Trump could put a critical faction of moderate Democrats at risk in 2020.Two weeks of public impeachment hearings have failed to ramp up support for ejecting Trump, polls show, and it has raised questions about the political risks of voting to impeach him.“I’ll have to see,” Rep. Donna Shalala, who represents a Miami swing district, told the Washington Examiner. “Whether it will shift their minds one way or the other, I don’t know that.” Just two Democrats voted against the ongoing impeachment proceeding when the House took up the measure on Oct. 31.

Education is such a fundamental element of American life, we often take it for granted. Yet the fundamental nature of education is precisely what makes it the political policy every citizen should care about.Whether you have children or not, education policy affects you. Children spend 12 of the most formative years of their lives -- typically seven hours a day, 180 days per year -- in school. That’s a minimum of 1,260 hours per year, or 15,120 total hours from the first grade through the 12th grade. During those thousands of hours, the minds of American youth are being influenced, for better or worse.

CNN’s National Affairs Correspondent, Joan Walsh, said she was “shocked” President Trump didn’t sexually assault the hero military dog visiting the White House on Monday. Walsh dedicated a whole Twitter thread to critiquing the body language of both Trump and First Lady Melania Trump as they welcomed Conan, the dog that took down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The president described Conan as the “the ultimate fighter” and awarded her a medal and a plaque for her role in the death al-Baghdadi. Naturally, Trump can’t give a heroic dog a medal without facing scrutiny from the mainstream media. Walsh described the scene as “terrifying” and wrote that

Early Monday morning, he tweeted that another four years of Donald Trump would be more dangerous for free markets than four years of Elizabeth Warren as president. Not that Warren is anywhere near his first pick... "I very much prefer Biden or Buttigieg or Bloomberg or Klobuchar to Warren. But the idea that one term of Warren would pose anything like the threat of a second term for Trump to the basic norms and institutions of our liberal democracy, including to free markets, is laughable," Kristol insisted.

Biological men, self-identifying as women, are poised to make a clean sweep of the Women’s Olympics, triggering a very public debate on this third-rail subject. That firestorm, pitting pro-women feminists against extreme pro-transgender progressives, will begin July 24th, just as the Presidential sweepstakes moves into its sprint to the finish line.

On July 25, 2019, President Donald Trump picked up the phone in the White House residence and attempted to shake down a foreign leader. Trump’s language was elliptical and soft, not direct and threatening, but his intentions were clear: He wanted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to “do us a favor.” That was Trump’s entree to his improper, indecent requests that Zelenskiy’s government undertake two investigations that would benefit Trump politically. Trump didn’t explain his motives, which of course were self-serving. First, he asked Zelenskiy to “find out what happened” with Ukraine’s supposed meddling, alongside Russia, in the 2016 U.S. election. Then there was Trump’s “other thing”: his desire that Ukraine “look into”

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) records show that Chick-fil-A is not only stopping donations to Christian organizations but is funding left-wing extremist groups, including the anti-Christian Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Chick-fil-A’s 2017 990 IRS filing shows the fast-food franchise made a $2,500 donation to SPLC, among a laundry list of pro-abortion and pro-LGBT orgs, Townhall reports. The Chick-fil-A Foundation has come under conservative scrutiny since its decision to stop supporting Christian charities such as the Salvation Army, caving to disingenuous pressure campaigns from far-left activists.

The Democrats’ tireless effort to remove President Trump from office via impeachment will fail. That much, along with death and taxes, is certain. There is no longer a question as to whether the Democrats will lose in their quest to upend 2016, the only remaining unknowns are where, when, and how badly. And, of course, who is to take the blame? If the buzz around Washington is to be believed, it’s Adam Schiff. The Democrats have their choice as to where they will fail, which, in large part, can help determine the extent of the self-inflicted damage their party will ultimately suffer.
