Brady Campaign’s Brilliant Strategy To Stop School Shootings

vlcsnap-2015-03-07-15h52m27s41

Appearing on KATU’s “Your Voice, Your Vote” program to discuss the topic of guns in schools, Brady Campaign representative Erin Thomas suggests “non violent vocabulary training” as a way to stop school shooters. This, after she laments the “militarization of the world” and lack of a “full time psychologist” at her child’s school.

In another segment from that program, Erin Thomas says that “In the case of Sandy Hook, something like a taser would have done well” obviously being clueless as to how a taser works, how close you have to be to the target to deploy it, and how nearly impossible it would be to get that close while dodging bullets.

idea-of-communismFrom KRQE:

“Our students are in the International Baccalaureate program, so they are very academically focused,” said Sam Obenshain, executive director at Cottonwood. “One of the classes they enjoy the most is a world history class.”

“They wanted prom-munism, so that’s what got voted for the most,” said senior Sarah Zachary.

“We have a lot of jokesters in our grade, so they wanted it to be funny and a lot of them are really intense with politics,” Zachary said.

However, students who asked to remain anonymous don’t believe Communism is a joking matter.

“I would hope Cottonwood would realize the seriousness of having a very powerful and destructive idea as the theme for a prom,” one student wrote.

Woman’s Gym Membership Revoked Over Complaints Of Trans Gender In Locker Room

3judgement%20free%20zone%20taylA woman in Midland, Michigan was suspicious of a manly “woman” in the locker room at her local Planet Fitness.  Turns out Yvette Cormier was onto something, as this was a transgendered person who “self identified” as a woman, and as such, was using the women’s locker room.

After complaining to gym management, Cormier was then informed that they were revoking her membership for violating the companies “judgement free zone” policy. The policy allows for those to “self identify” as whatever gender they choose, and as such, can use whichever locker room they deem applicable.

A statement released by Planet Fitness says they are “committed to creating a non-intimidating, welcoming environment for our members. Our gender identity non-discrimination policy states that members and guests may use all gym facilities based on their sincere self-reported gender identity.”

“In expressing her concerns about the policy,” the statement continued, “the member in question exhibited behavior that club management deemed inappropriate and disruptive to other members, which is a violation of the membership agreement and as a result her membership was cancelled.”

U.C. Irvine Bans American Flag (UPDATED!)

ucirvine_00University of California, Irvine has banned the American flag in “inclusive” spaces. Portions of the official resolution read:

Whereas flags not only serve as symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism, but also construct cultural mythologies and narratives that in turn charge nationalistic sentiments.

Whereas the American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism.

Whereas symbolism has negative and positive aspects that are interpreted differently by individuals.

Whereas designing a culturally inclusive space is taken seriously by ASUCI

Whereas the removal of barriers is the best option at promoting an inclusive space.

Whereas it is a psychological effect for individuals to identify negative aspects of a space rather than positive ones.

Whereas freedom of speech, in a space that aims to be as inclusive as possible can be interpreted as hate speech.

Let it be resolved that ASUCI make every effort to make the Associated Students main lobby space as inclusive as possible.

Let it further be resolved that no flag, of any nation, may be hanged on the walls of the Associate Student main lobby space.

Let it be further be resolved that if a decorative item is in the Associate student lobby space and issues arise, the solution will be to remove the item if there is considerable request to do so.

UPDATE!

The U.C. Irivine Executive Cabinet of the Associated Students of UC Irvine vetoed the resolution on Saturday. Per their official statement:

We the Executive Cabinet of the Associated Students of the University of California, Irvine convened on March 7, 2015 to officially veto ASUCI Legislative Council legislation R50-70, “Flags and decoration adjustment for inclusivity.” We engage in this action to veto under the constitutional authority granted to us under Article V, Section B, Sub-Section 2 of the ASUCI Constitution stating:

New Gun Law Hinders LEO Training

thumb.php

As hunters have been voicing their concerns over Washington’s new vague background check law, it appears as though law enforcement agencies are being impacted as well.

From the latest newsletter from state Rep. Lynda Wilson

“Another issue of great concern to me is the continued fallout from the passage of I-594 regarding universal background checks on firearm transfers. Since it passed in November, we are continuing to hear of major issues created by this initiative, including  a concern shared with me by the Clark County Sheriff’s Department. State law requires law enforcement officers to receive extensive training and certification in firearms use. This often requires an outside armorer to conduct trainings that involve multiple firearms being used throughout the certification training by instructors and participants. Under the provisions of I-594, it is unclear if these transfers would require background checks. In fact, some armorers have cancelled their training courses in Washington state and law enforcement agencies are being advised by their legal departments to seek training out of state.

The pro I 594 said all along this would not affect such things, but whether intended or not, that’s exactly what is happening.

Far Left Senator: “Real Unemployment Is Over 11%” (VIDEO)

Senator Bernie SandersSocialist Senator Bernie Sanders (Image screenshot).

In October of last year, Donald Trump was mocked by Progressives for stating that the official unemployment numbers released by the Obama administration were phony and that the real unemployment rate was much higher.

In what only can be described as a shockingly candid admission, a Progressive Senator just admitted the same thing that made Donald Trump the punching boy of the left; That the Obama administration’s official unemployment numbers are fake.

At the end of last month, during a speech to the Story County Iowa Democrat Party, Senator Bernie Sanders admitted that “official” unemployment numbers are different than “real” unemployment numbers. Real unemployment is much higher:

“Because when you see in the papers that official is 5.8%. I trust that you all understand that is different than real unemployment.

“Real unemployment, government figures, excludes those people who have given up looking for work and those people who are working part-time when they want to work full-time. If you add those numbers together government statistics tell you that real unemployment in America is over 11%. Youth unemployment, which we never talk about, is 18%. African-american youth unemployment is close to 30%.”

Video below (Comment begins at the 13:40 mark):

According to the Obama administration “official” unemployment in America is 5.7%

Senator Bernie Sanders is registered as an Independent (specifically Socialist) but caucuses with the Democratic Party.

What They Say During A Brady Campaign Conference Call…

-93c98f91e6626603

How can we get it through their thick skulls that they need to register their guns?” Asks Katie, from North Bend , Oregon, during a Brady Campaign conference call that focused on gun control legislation in the state. “I’m a thousand percent supporter of gun registry, but what I have a feeling is that the paranoid people who are against it, they always seem to have something to hide, and that perhaps that is why they don’t want to register their guns… How can we get it across to the paranoid group to please register their guns? How can we get it through their thick skulls that they need to register their guns?

Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign and Oregon state Senator Ginny Burdick try to run damage control on the delusional woman, and instruct her on how to redirect her talking points. Senator Burdick says this isn’t about “registration”, but has been previously seen outright calling for registration in a prior video.

This portion of the call was captured in this video:

The wackjobs were back at it again at PSU, where the Northwest Regional Animal Liberation Forum took place on Feb. 7th.

Among the sponsoring groups were Student Animal Liberation Coalition, Portland Vegans Of Color, Resistance Ecology, Portland Animal Liberation, No New Animal Lab, Cascadia Animal Rights Alliance, Civil Liberties Defense Center, Portland Animal Welfare Advocates, Vancouver Animal Defense League, Free The Oregon Zoo Elephants, and Wildlife Defense League.

Presentation workshops included Anti-Oppression Training, Vegans Of Color Only Discussion Space (see video below of non-colored person ejected), Know Your Rights & Security Culture Basics, and Researching Targets. Also included in the program was a map of the “gender neutral” bathrooms in the area. After the forum they put a plan into action to protest at the home of a Skanska executive. Skanska is the construction company that has been contracted to build a new animal lab at the University Of Washington.

Videographer Daylight Disinfectant was on hand for some of the forum, and brings us these videos:

A cow character in one of the Power Point presentations asks “Who has more social power than you?”

This presenter poses the question “What kind of an asshole would eat a lamb?”

And here are the “all-inclusive” revolutionaries ejecting someone based on race from the “Vegans Of Color” presentation at a public event on a public university campus.

Democrat Governor Vetos Abortion Bill Citing It’s “Unconstitutional”

With President Obama’s recent executive actions on immigration, Ar-15 ammunition, and now the White House discussing executive action on taxes, it’s a wonder if the Democratic party has ever even read the Constitution, let alone worry about abiding by it. As a matter of fact the only time the Progressive left will even mention the Constitution is when they are using it as an excuse for something they have done. Especially when people aren’t happy about their decision.

Case in point.

The LA Times reports that the Democratic Governor of West Virginia, Earl Ray Tomblin, just vetoed a bill that would ban abortion at 20 weeks by citing that it was unconstitutional:

West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin vetoed legislation Tuesday that would ban abortions at 20 weeks’ pregnancy, noting that the law would not pass constitutional muster.

“It was the second time in two years that the Democrat vetoed bills that would make it more difficult for women to access abortion services.

“As reflected in my voting record during my time in the Legislature, I believe there is no greater gift of love than the gift of life,” Tomblin said in a written statement. “As governor, I must take into consideration a number of factors when reviewing legislation, including its constitutionality.

“At the start of the regular session, I urged members of the legislature to consider a compromise that would help us establish legislation that would pass constitutional muster,” he continued. “Having received a substantially similar bill to the one vetoed last year on constitutional grounds, I must veto House Bill 2568.”

“The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act provides no exceptions for rape or incest and threatens to strip medical licenses from providers who perform abortions after 20 weeks. It is based on the premise that fetuses feel pain 20 weeks after conception, which is in dispute.

“Federal judges have stopped similar pre-viability abortion bans in Texas, Arizona, Georgia, Arkansas and North Dakota.

“On Tuesday, abortion rights groups hailed Tomblin’s action and derided the bill as cruel and unconstitutional.”

Pro Choice America, a Pro Abortion Group, lists Governor Tomblin as a “Mixed Choice” politician. While the West Virginian House and Senate are listed as “Anti-Choice”.
