Scaramucci’s calls for tougher gun laws vanish from Twitter

Via comment by hbbill on "Can't be trusted."
 Could he be a plant?

Newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has posted his support for stringent gun-control laws – a position that would be at odds with President Trump’s views.

“I have always been for strong gun control laws,” Scaramucci tweeted after the December 2012 shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 kids were gunned down.

In August 2012, he tweeted: “We (the USA) has 5% of the world’s population but 50% of the world’s guns. Enough is enough. It is just common sense it apply more controls.”

The Origins of the Neo-Marxist Attack on the South: Excellent

One method Gramscists’ have used to gain power enough to re-write history has been to gain tenured teaching positions at colleges and universities. This gradualist approach is called boring from within. It has resulted in significant representation of anti-American Gramscists at U.S. universities and colleges. The people that interviewed the initial Gramscists and hired them may have been open-minded people that projected their own honesty to those that they interviewed and hired, but Gramscists’ once tenured, have not been.

On July 5th, the Abbeville Institute published an article entitled “Southern Identity and the Southern Tradition” by John Devanny.

Mr. Devanny noted that Marxism is involved in attacks on southern culture and heritage and wrote that many of them were “the inheritors of a secular Puritan legacy and the disciples of cultural Marxism who began to dominate the academy in the 1960s.”

The northeastern geographic origin of many New Left reconstructionists makes me suspect Mr. Devanny is right, and that many may be cultural-political descendants of secular Puritanism.

Certainly, the milieu there is hospitable to post-secular-Puritan Neo Marxists. There are, of course, other New Left pinks and reds of a California variety. In the 1960s the impetus for the increase of this virulent variety was U.S. succession to France’s war in Vietnam and southeastern Asia.

Minnesota Schools Adopt Transgender Toolkit for Kindergartners (Not a parody)

Via Billy

A "transgender toolkit" for public schools in Minnesota advises teachers to call children "scholars" instead of boys and girls.

The guidelines were approved Wednesday by the "School Safety Technical Assistance Council" and will be distributed to Kindergarten through 12th grade public schools and charter schools throughout the state. The toolkit attempts to "ensure a safe and supportive transition" for children becoming a different gender at school.

The toolkit allows for boys who identify as girls to use the girls' bathroom, and tells teachers to ask kids what their "preferred pronouns" are.

Trump warns Iran could face 'new and serious consequences' if it doesn't free US prisoners

President Trump warned Friday that Iran could face "new and serious consequences" if it doesn't free U.S. citizens imprisoned in Iran.

"President Donald J. Trump and his administration are redoubling efforts to bring home all Americans unjustly detained abroad," the White House said in a statement. "The United States condemns hostage takers and nations that continue to take hostages and detain our citizens without just cause or due process. President Trump is prepared to impose new and serious consequences on Iran unless all unjustly imprisoned American citizens are released and returned." It did not detail what those consequences could be, however.

Trump specifically called for the release of American citizens Robert Levinson and Baquer and Siamak Namazi.

Levinson is a former FBI agent who disappeared from Iran's Kish Island in 2007.

'Oh He Just Died': Teens Laugh At Drowning Disabled Man In Disturbing Video

Via Billy

A group of teens, who filmed and mocked a disabled man as he slowly drowned in a pond, would not be criminally charged as no laws were broken in recording the video, Florida Police said Thursday. 

Jamel Dunn, 32, drowned in a retention pond July 9 as the teens recorded his ordeal and did not bother to help him, or call for help in Cocoa, Florida. Dunn’s body was not discovered until three days, according to Florida Today, a part of the USA Today network.

The video that police called "disturbing" surfaced online after his body was discovered, and showed him in his final moments.

Sanctuary city standoff looms as ICE director vows agent surge

Via Billy

The acting ICE director is vowing to use new resources to target undocumented immigrants in sanctuary cities – a move likely to hit resistance from mayors and local law enforcement who previously have refused to cooperate with federal authorities.

ICE Director Thomas Homan told The Washington Examiner he thinks sanctuary cities like New York and San Francisco are “ludicrous” and plans to direct extra agents to those areas.
“What I want to get to is a clear understanding from everybody, from the congressmen to the politicians to law enforcement to those who enter the country illegally, that ICE is open for business,” Homan said.

How Democrats stole the nation's lower federal courts

OPINION | How Democrats stole the nation's lower federal courts

The Democrats, and Sen. Chuck Schumer in particular, have engaged in an outrageous set of practices from 1993 to 2017 that have allowed them to steal huge majorities on all the federal circuit courts of appeals.  This story needs telling because Senate Republicans, while performing very admirably in replacing Justice Scalia with Justice Gorsuch, have had their pockets picked with the courts of appeals.  

Federal courts of appeals decide over 60,000 cases a year while the Supreme Court decides only 80.  We could have a Supreme Court of nine Justices Gorsuch and still lose 59,020 cases a year.  That is a pretty bad situation for Republicans in the judiciary.  Moreover, the current imbalance has occurred almost entirely because of the bad-faith dealing of Sen. Chuck Schumer, who has outwitted Republicans at every turn.

Jill Stein Drops Truth Bomb on DNC: Mocks Crazy Russia Conspiracy

Via Billy

Former Presidential candidate for the Green Party, Jill Stein dropped an atomic bomb on the DNC Friday from her Twitter account. Stein slammed the rigged DNC then accused them of covering their tracks with ‘ludicrous Russia conspiracy theories’.
The liberals went crazy and attacked her for ‘carrying the water for the GOP’. There is something so satisfying about watching liberals attack each other!

Jill Stein sent out a tweet slamming the DNC saying, ‘Unlike the Dems, I didn’t sabotage Bernie Sanders in the primaries, then try to cover my tracks with ludicrous Russia conspiracy theories.”

OUCH! Hey Jill Stein is on point with this tweet, but every broken clock is right twice a day!
