Dems Lobby for Death Penalty Aimed at Cops Guilty of Murder or Assault

Eight members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) , to include the monumentally dimwitted Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), have joined forces in another attempt to push through something called the Police Accountability Act.

As reported by Pete Kasperowicz of the Washington Examiner, if any given law enforcement official (LEO) should be found of committing murder or assault in the line of duty, the same LEO would also find themselves up on federal charges that could result in the death penalty;

Several House Democrats have introduced legislation that would subject state and local police to the death penalty if they are found guilty or assault or murder.

The Police Accountability Act, from Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., is one of the Democrats’ answers to the police brutality that they say still plagues black Americans around the country.

His bill would subject police to the death penalty when cops commit certain crimes that already trigger the death penalty in other circumstances. Johnson, who has introduced this bill in prior Congresses, said it’s needed because police cannot be put above the law.

“I support our law enforcement officers,” Johnson said. “They have a difficult job to uphold the law and to protect and serve the American people and to keep them safe from harm’s way. They should be commended and we owe them a tremendous debt of gratitude.”

“But law enforcement officers are not above the law and should be held accountable like anyone else,” he added.

“People are rightfully demanding an end to unequal justice, and that those who are responsible for the use of excessive force be brought to justice,” Johnson said.

Unfortunately for Congressman Johnson and his pals at the CBC, reporter Philippe Lemoine of the National Review has already published data that sinks the Democrat narrative the black males are somehow “targeted” by police;

According to this narrative, black men are constantly harassed by the police and routinely brutalized with impunity, even when they have done nothing wrong, and there is an “epidemic of police shootings of unarmed black men.” Even high-profile black celebrities often claim to be afraid of the police because the same thing might happen to them. Police brutality, or at least the possibility that one might become a victim of such violence, is supposed to be part of the experience of a typical black man in the U.S. Events such as the death of Brown in Ferguson are presented as proof that black men are never safe from the police.

This narrative is false. In reality, a randomly selected black man is overwhelmingly unlikely to be victim of police violence — and though white men experience such violence even less often, the disparity is consistent with the racial gap in violent crime, suggesting that the role of racial bias is small.

Let’s start with the question of fatal violence. Last year, according to the Washington Post’s tally, just 16 unarmed black men, out of a population of more than 20 million, were killed by the police. The year before, the number was 36. These figures are likely close to the number of black men struck by lightning in a given year, considering that happens to about 300 Americans annually and black men are 7 percent of the population. And they include cases where the shooting was justified, even if the person killed was unarmed.

Similarly, a black man has on average only 0.32 contacts with the police in any given year, compared with 0.35 contacts for a white man. It’s true that black men are overrepresented among people who have many contacts with the police, but not by much. Only 1.5 percent of black men have more than three contacts with the police in any given year, whereas 1.2 percent of white men do.

Perhaps living proof that a mind is a terrible thing, Rep. Johnson is best known for his concern that the US territory of Guam might “tip over” if too many Marines were stationed in the Island.

bump stock

You’ll Never Guess Whose Administration Authorized ‘Bump Stocks’

I’ve never even heard the phrase “bump stock” until Washington Democrats started screaming about the firearm accessory in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting.

While party politicians ranging from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) to Sen. Bernie Sanders (Soc-NH) have been hyperventilating for legislation to ensure bump stocks will never be sold to the general public, the same partisan politicos certainly seem to have come down with collective cases of amnesia.

As reported by Awr Hawkins of the Breitbart.com news portal, it was actually the Barack Obama Administration that authorized that particular piece of equipment back in 2010;

While bump stocks are taking criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike, it is interesting to note that the devices were approved for sale in 2010 by Barack Obama’s ATF.

The ATF approved the devices because they do not convert a semiautomatic rifle into an automatic. Rather, they are an accessory that allows semiautomatic rifle owners to mimic automatic fire for short bursts.

According to the Washington Post, Rick Vasquez, the ATF official who signed off on non-regulation for bump stocks, described them as “a goofy, little doodad.” This squares with the Breitbart News report that bump stocks “are for novelty, not accuracy.” They are devices that allow bursts of rapid fire but are unpredictable because the gun’s buffer tube can bounce around or bobble inside the device, making jams and inconsistent fire patterns likely.

Vasquez, a former Marine, put is this way: “[Bump stocks are] for those guys who want to look like super ninja when they’re out on the range — they’re the people my peer group makes fun of. If you want a machine gun, join the Marines.”

Lost in Vasquez’s humor is the fact that not everyone will join the Marines and very few people can afford their own machine gun, with prices starting at roughly $15,000. So a bump stock is a $200 substitute that allows cash-strapped citizens to mimic real machine guns on the cheap.

But bump-stocks may be facing an uphill battle, as Sen Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is calling for a ban on the devices and numerous GOP Senators–including John Cornyn and John Thune–admit unfamiliarity with the devices yet still express openness to a hearing on a ban. Moreover, Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX) made clear his belief that “typical gun owners” do not need bump stock devices.

As seen in the video below, the bump stock mimics the rapid fire capability of an automatic weapon by using an automatic’s own kinetic energy caused by the round’s primer expliding coupled with the weapon’s recoil on the buffer spring.

As noted by the non-partisan Popular Mechanics magazine;

Bump stocks are simple pieces of equipment that replace the stock of a rifle and add a small “support step” in front of the trigger. The shooter rests his finger on this step and pulls forward on the barrel or forward grip to press the trigger against his finger. The recoil of the shot then propels the rifle backwards into a gap in stationary stock where the loose fit gives the rifle freedom to bounce forward. This, along with sustained forward pressure on the rifle, has the effect of ‘bumping’ the trigger back into the shooter’s unmoving finger. So long as a shooter maintains forward pressure, the rifle will continue to fire at a rate much faster than could be accomplished with even the quickest possible series of manual trigger pulls.

Bump fire stock in action.

stupid

Stupid alert – victimhood pimp finds latest oppressors: Smart people

smart
Smart people suck.

“Stupid people of the world, uhhh…”

Victimhood has always been a lucrative business. Doubt me? Just look at the millions of dollars pulled in by the likes of Al Sharpton, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Jesse Jackson.

Or if you’re anywhere near the University of Iowa, look up student Dan Williams. He’ll give you the lowdown on those with a low IQ.

If you’re lucky, Williams will happily explain to you how unfair it is to the more stupid that dwell amongst us that smart people have a clear “privilege” over them.  And by crackie, that’s just wrong and needs to be stopped, forthwith. And probably fifth and sixthwith, too.

Reported by Thomas Lifson of The American Thinker, “Progressives, crazed with identifying new forms of oppression attached to the currently fashionable catchword privilege, have finally embraced the stupid as a victim class.

Lifson notes one of the more interesting (amusing) passages in Williams’ article;

There are many kinds of privilege besides white privilege: cognitive privilege, for example. We now know that intelligence is not something we have significant control over but is something we are born with. We are living in a society in which success is increasingly linked to one’s intelligence. This is not to say that intelligence is the only factor that is important. All that is implied is that below a certain threshold of intelligence, there are fewer and fewer opportunities. These opportunities are being shifted upward to jobs that require heavier cognitive lifting or else are being replaced by robots. Thus, the accident of having been born smart enough to be able to be successful is a great benefit that you did absolutely nothing to earn. Consequently, you have nothing to be proud of for being smart.

As every schoolchild knows (or at least should know), the Declaration of Independence clearly states:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Maybe it’s the “self-evident” part that the stupid need explained to them, or possibly that the pursuit of happiness is far from a federal guarantee of happiness.

Nonetheless, Williams makes a point of blaming those gifted with intelligence for the stupid being, well… stupid.

And victims. Don’t forget that the less intelligent are victims of the more intelligent.

For the benefit of Williams and the stupid he claims are victims, allow me to point out that once that whole creation stuff is finished, some rather interesting things happen;

  • Some people are taller than most, some are shorter than most
  • Some people are stronger than most, some are weaker than most
  • Some people are more intelligent than most, some are less intelligent than most

Referring back to the article from The American Thinker,  Lifson correctly opines;

I am not certain if Williams is an actual sophomore, but he certainly is sophomoric.  He understands nothing about intelligence, though he pretends he does.  (In fairness, I was once an undergraduate college student intoxicated with the new ideas I was learning.  And it was my privilege to learn from scholars immersed in classical thought, not progressive propagandists.)

News Flash: Russian spying on the United States since 1850s

russian
Democrats respond to Russian spying.

Russian spying: Should I dare bring up the Soviet spies that infiltrated the Democrat Administration of Franklin Roosevelt?

This may come as somewhat of a shock to the Democrats, but Russia has been spying on our beloved America since at least the middle of the 19th century. Way before Boris Badenov tried to rig the outcome of the football game between Wossamatta U. and the Mud City Manglers, the Russians have been knee-deep in America’s affairs of state.

In spite of the Democrats recent clutching of pearls and near apoplectic drama when the cameras are on, those nogoodniks in Mother Russia have been snoopin’ and poopin’ on us since at least 1851.

As noted in the book The Treaty of Portsmouth and Its Legacies, edited by Steven Ericson and Allen Hockley, the American ambassador to Czarist Russia, Neil S. Brown from 1851-1853, reported back to Washington that the “most disagreeable features of Russia were its secrecy, surveillance, distrust, undue ceremony and delay, overbearing police, censorship, and espionage, including opening communications and spying.” Sounds like the Obama Administration.

It’s a fair bet that the same espionage and spying Ambassador Brown decried was also pointed directly at the American embassy in the then Russian capital of St. Petersburg.

By the way, the definition of espionage is “the practice

russia

of spying or using spies to obtain information about the plans and activities especially of a foreign government”.

Speaking of fair bets, our own CIA notes in their official website that a little sumpin’-sumpin’ called the Zagranichnaia okhranka (fancy Russian talk for the House of Romanov’s Imperial Police) opened their Paris office in 1883 to keep an eye on Russian troublemakers who’ve been booted from the Land of the Rus.

And yes, it’s a fair bet that the butt-in-skis at the unpronounceable Zagranichnaia okhranka poked their collective noses into the goings-on at the American embassy regarding the status of Russians who had recently emigrated to the States.

But if Czarist Russia isn’t your cup of tea, there’s always the re-branded Russians, also known as the Soviets.

In the Edward Mickolus book The Counterintelligence Chronology: Spying by and Against the United States from the 1700s through 2014, the author notes that the former-USSR posted their first (that we know of) intelligence officer in the United States.

As it turns out, standard spy-craft wasn’t enough for the Soviets. Even the dependably left-leaning PBS cited on their website;

The Amtorg Trading Corporation is an American company based in New York that was founded in 1924 by the Soviet Union to serve as its buying and selling organization in trade between the USSR and the USA. It handled the bulk of Soviet-American trade until 1935, and continues to exist today. Working as an Amtorg employee served as a convenient cover for Soviet spies, such as Morris Cohen.

That’s right. The same Morris Cohen who turned his back on the land of his birth, and later against Great Britain, for the Soviet Union.

They’re called the RED Sox for a reason

Democrats angry that ICE is enforcing immigration and customs laws

ICE doing ICE stuff. (Wiki)The third word in the acronym ICE is “enforcement”. The first and second words are “immigration” and “customs,” respectively. Yet for whatever bizarre reason, Democrats are quite upset with ICE doing their job.

Arguably, the Democrats understanding of the English language is on par with their understanding of the constitutionality of the electoral college.

Proof of such would be the latest Trumper-tantrum the members of the Jackass Party are clutching their pearls over.

Like everything else with the Dems, they’re now having yet another group-power-pout over the Trump Administration violating various “sensitive” spaces that illegal aliens might find themselves occupying at any given time.

Yet to say that the Trump-haters are in melt-down is an understatement. Case in point would be Washington Post reporter Katie Mettler (via the Norwich Bulletin) managing to get the words “Donald Trump,” “undocumented immigrants” and “Gestapo” in the very first sentence of her article concerning recent ICE arrests.

But for a far-more objective and professional report, Lincoln Graves of KATU News (of Roseburg, Oregon), cites a US Representative from the Beaver State is none-too thrilled with how ICE has gone about arresting a number of illegal aliens.

As reported;

U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, D-Oregon, along with other U.S. House members, unveiled legislation Thursday aimed at protecting “sensitive” locations during immigration enforcement efforts.

It would prohibit arrests, interviews, searches, and surveillance in medical or health care facilities, public and private schools, places of worship, courthouses, DMV offices, and locations that provide emergency services.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement currently operates under similar guidelines, but Bonamici says the bill would solidify and expand them.

“So this bill would put that into law and also expand sensitive locations to include courthouses because we are very concerned about people not being able to report crimes or, for example, seek protective orders,” Bonamici said.

Bonamici hosted a roundtable discussion at Portland State University Friday morning. Local and state leaders joined the discussion, which centered on why the legislation was needed.

“These are people who feel safer at home with their abuser than they do coming to get services they need,” said Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury, in reference to undocumented immigrants who’ve avoided domestic violence counseling because they’re afraid ICE agents could be staked out a government buildings.

“It pains me that we are not able to take away the fear and the stress and the strain that our community members are feeling,” Kafoury said. “I strongly believe this legislation is an important step forward.”

There is, however, opposition to Bonamici’s idea.

Kevin Hoar, spokesman for the Oregon GOP sent KATU a statement that reads:

“Congresswoman Bonamici is proposing to create a “safe zone” to interfere with the enforcement of federal law that she has sworn to uphold. ICE is performing an essential service to Americans by seeking to detain and deport the illegal aliens who have been committing serious crimes in our country. Why isn’t her priority to ensure that our country is a “safe zone” from the serious crimes of illegal aliens?”

Martin Luther King, Jr. may have died many years ago, but it’s arguable that his dream died last night in the City of Brotherly Love. As reported by The Daily Caller, little was left to the imagination at a black supremacist rally in the veritable shadow of the Democratic National Convention.

In spite of Dr. King once proclaiming, “I have a dream that one day little black boys and girls will be holding hands with little white boys and girls,” present day so-called civil rights leaders such as Rep.
