Hillary Clinton Releases New Ad Calling For GREATER GUN CONTROL (VIDEO)

Hillary gun control ad

It’s pretty clear at this point that if Hillary Clinton becomes president, she’s going to come after the guns of law abiding citizens. She keeps coming back to the issue.

Time reports:

Hillary Clinton Calls for Gun Control in New Ad

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is releasing a new ad on Tuesday that focuses on the effort to reduce gun violence, an issue the Democratic frontrunner has made central to the nominating contest.

The entire ad features Clinton speaking at a town hall meeting and calling for gun control measures.

“This epidemic of gun violence knows no boundaries. Between 88 and 92 people a day are killed by guns,” Clinton says in the ad. “We need to close the loopholes and support universal background checks. How many people have to die before we actually act?”

Watch the video:

A recent article from the Daily Beast seems to confirm her intentions:

Yes, They Want to Take Your Guns Away

Thirty thousand people are killed by firearms each year in the United States, an astronomically high figure for a developed Western country not in a state of civil war.

President Obama reminds Americans of this sad statistic with depressing regularity, and he did so again last month after a mass shooting in Oregon took the lives of nine people. “We know there are ways to prevent it,” the president said.

We do indeed know there are “ways” to stop gun violence in the United States, yet we adamantly refuse to name them. The perennial “national conversation” about guns is predictably stale because its contestants—those favoring a largely unfettered right to personal gun ownership and those opposing it—are talking past each other. Prevarication characterizes the debate, as each side adheres to a core principle that, for reasons of propriety and political calculation, it is unwilling to admit publicly.

French Weatherman Gets Fired For Questioning CLIMATE CHANGE

Philippe Verdier

We’re getting to the point where anyone who questions the left’s preferred view of the world gets frozen out of polite society and even their job.

Steve Birr reports at the Daily Caller:

Top French Weatherman Fired For Denying Global Warming

Top French weatherman Philippe Verdier was fired Saturday for publishing a book critical of the climate change narrative.

Verdier’s story first gained traction in early October following reports that he was forced to take a vacation after his new book Climate Investigation published. In the book, Verdier accuses global warming scientists of misleading the public and using scare tactics to force conformity on the issue, reports France 24. He specifically goes after the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), alleging that they have “politicized” climate change and intentionally published false data.

“I am being punished for exercising my freedom of expression,” said Verdier. He was reportedly summoned two weeks ago to a meeting with top executives from French news channel France Televisions and received his official notice of termination on Saturday.

Verdier said he was inspired to write the book following a meeting he had with the French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius. Fabius met with the country’s top meteorologists to tell them to start pushing the global warming narrative by highlighting stories about the impact of climate change, according to France 24.

This could never happen in America, right?

SURPRISE! Totalitarian Liberals Want to Make it MANDATORY TO VOTE

Democrats Fascim

If progressives get their way, you will be forced to participate in the American election process and you will like it.

Choosing to stay home on election day will no longer be an option. For people who claim to believe in choice, the left sure loves force.

Just yesterday, this was published at the liberal outlet The Atlantic:

A Feasible Roadmap to Compulsory Voting

Not enough people vote. It’s a perennial source of concern in American politics. There’s no shortage of reforms designed to address the problem, but one idea that seems particularly promising, at least in theory, is compulsory voting. It would produce much higher turnout for the obvious reason that it requires people to vote. It’s long been dismissed, though, as an impossible pipe dream, unlikely to ever happen in the United States. But if reformers were to start at the municipal level, they could set into motion forces that might lead to its nationwide adoption.

Start with some statistics: In years with presidential elections, voter turnout peaks at just above 60 percent. In off-year elections, turnout dips to 40 percent or less. In November 2014, only 36 percent of eligible voters went to the polls—the lowest share in more than 70 years. Participation this paltry calls into question the political system’s legitimacy. It also hints that election outcomes might be quite different if more people bothered to show up.

Gee. Where did they get that idea?

CNN reported in March of this year:

Obama: Maybe it’s time for mandatory voting

The president whose major policy achievement is mandatory health insurance thinks maybe voting should be mandatory, too.

Asked how to offset the influence of big money in politics, President Barack Obama suggested it’s time to make voting a requirement.

“Other countries have mandatory voting,” Obama said Wednesday in Cleveland, where he spoke about the importance of middle class economics, and was asked about the issue during a town hall.

“It would be transformative if everybody voted — that would counteract money more than anything,” he said, adding it was the first time he had shared the idea publicly.

You know who else has mandatory voting? North Korea.

That’s where we’re headed if progressives stay in charge.

Here’s What Hillary Clinton Was Thinking About While Security In LIBYA WAS DETERIORATING

hillary

Hillary Clinton apparently got bored with being Secretary of State. For instance, when security in Libya was deteriorating, she was emailing her daughter Chelsea about interior design questions.

The Right Scoop reports:

Another tranche of Hillary’s State Department emails were released on Friday, and while all the “journalists” just guffawed at all the charming ways in which Granny Cankles wrote about emojis, conservatives found an email showing just how little she cared about security in Libya.

Here’s the email:

Swedish Foreign Minister Says Refugee Crisis Could Cause SWEDEN TO COLLAPSE

Margot Wallstrom

Sweden is a major player in the world economy and their collapse could set off a domino effect. Is that what this is all about? Are we witnessing the Cloward–Piven Strategy on a global level?

UPI reports:

Sweden facing ‘collapse’ because of refugees, foreign minister says

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Nov. 2 (UPI) — Sweden’s refugee crisis could lead to the country’s collapse without European Union support, Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom said.

“I think most people feel that we cannot maintain a system where perhaps 190,000 people will arrive every year. In the long run, our system will collapse. And that welcome is not going to receive popular support. I have to admit that there have been moments recently of very great disappointment. I have heard statements from [EU] member states that have been completely astonishing and very discouraging,” she told the newspaper Dagens Nyheter.

Wallstrom added the Swedish government needs to pressure other EU members to take on a greater share of the burden.

Sweden, with Germany, has been a prominent destination for refugees largely from the Middle East, who have sought asylum by the hundreds of thousands in Europe. Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven has said his country is “approaching the limit” of its capability to absorb immigrants.

Lofven is scheduled to meet with British Prime Minister David Cameron next week to discuss the matter. Britain has been reluctant to accept more refugees.

Here’s another question: Why aren’t Saudi Arabia, Iran, or Qatar accepting refugees?

American Taxpayers Just Footed The Bill For This $43 MILLION GAS STATION IN AFGHANISTAN

afghan gas station

American taxpayers always get screwed when progressives are in charge. While conservatives are being audited by the IRS, the government is out wasting their money in countries that harbor Islamic terrorists.

Fox News reports:

It might be the world’s most expensive gas station — not to mention a gross misuse of taxpayer money, according to a top government watchdog.

The Department of Defense spent $43 million to build a gas station in Afghanistan that should have cost roughly $500,000, the lead oversight team monitoring U.S. spending in Afghanistan has found. The discovery came as part of a broader investigation into allegations of criminal activity within the DOD’s premiere program to kick-start the Afghan economy.

“It’s fright-night at the Pentagon,” John Sopko, special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction (SIGAR), told FoxNews.com, calling the spending “outrageous to the taxpayer.”

At issue is spending by the Task Force for Stability and Business Operations, known as TFBSO or the Task Force, which ended in March 2015. But most alarming, according to Sopko, is the DOD’s failure to answer questions about the $800 million program and its claim the Task Force’s employees no longer work for the DOD.

Can we get our money back, please?

COLUMN: South Park is Now Leading the Fight Against SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS

South Park SJWs

If you’ve been watching the new season of South Park, you know they’ve taken on politically correct culture in a big way. This represents a shift in popular culture. That’s not to say South Park is a ‘conservative’ show, but that’s not the point.

Stephen L. Miller writes at National Review:

South Park Shows How to Defeat the Social-Justice Warriors

A soul-crushing society, led by a click-happy media and finger-wagging president, that has demanded our country and culture change everything from its football-team names to its campus speech policies, has gone largely unchecked for the past seven or so years. Today, the shirt a scientist wears is more important than his first-in-human-history accomplishments, and the jokes we tell on Twitter lead to angry mobs waiting for us at the airport. Random YouTube comments are held up as paramount examples of our society as savagely sexist, racist, or whatever other kind of “ist” the shame media can think of.

The Gawkerization of media demands we care if a celebrity appropriates corn rows in an Instagram picture, and drives clicks through the comments that savage social-media timelines. Sensationalized celebrity media has effectively weaponized itself with the encouragement of a president who believes we should apologize for everything from our professional-sports team names to our ancient crusades. If it all feels overwhelming and exhausting, it’s because there has been very little pushback against any of it.

Until now.

The cries for liberation from this browbeating have finally been answered, by what might appear, on the surface, to be unlikely heroes: the boys from the quaint Colorado town of South Park.

READ IT ALL.

Here’s a recent clip featuring Obama and Caitlyn Jenner.

Liberals Now Claim Opponents Of Gay Marriage Have A PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDER

gay flag

The new Leftist agenda is upon us and its main purpose is to claim that anyone who supports traditional marriage is actually a sick and disturbed human being.

This is from new research conducted by some Leftist kooks:

“Live Science” reports that researchers at the University of Rome Tor Vergata asked 560 university students to report their feelings about homosexuality, then gave them a standard psychiatric evaluation.

Participants who exhibited what the researchers called “healthy attachment styles” tended to show less animosity toward homosexuals. They also showed more “mature coping mechanisms” in “scary or unpleasant situations,” and were generally less angry. But those who showed the highest animosity toward homosexuals exhibited a host of warning signs like inability to trust others, passive-aggressive behavior, and denial.

Lead researcher Emmanuele Jannini concluded, “After discussing for centuries if homosexuality is to be considered a disease, for the first time we demonstrated that the real disease to be cured is homophobia.”

So if you believe marriage is between a man and a woman, progressives now suggest that you seek help.

Denmark’s Prime Minister To Bernie Sanders: WE’RE NOT A SOCIALIST UTOPIA

Danish PM Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders has often said that the United States should be more like Denmark but the Danish prime minister has news for him. He’s wrong.

From the Government Executive:

Denmark: We Are Not The Socialist Utopia Bernie Sanders Thinks We Are

In the first Democratic primary debate, both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders spoke of their fondness for Denmark.

Sanders, in particular, suggested that the US could adopt a socialist system by emulating Scandinavia. “I think we should look to countries like Denmark, like Sweden and Norway, and learn from what they have accomplished for their working people,” said the US presidential candidate, who identifies himself as a “democratic socialist.”

But Danish prime minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen, speaking at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government this week, says Sanders got more than a few things wrong.

“I know that some people in the US associate the Nordic model with some sort of socialism. Therefore I would like to make one thing clear. Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy.”

Sorry, Bernie. Better luck next time.
