Well done, Mr. Pence.

Vice President Pence leaves game after 250-pound children act up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vice President Mike Pence spoke out on Sunday about why he left a Indianapolis Colts-San Francisco 49ers game, after a report emerged which said former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick would stand for the anthem if he would be able to sign with an NFL team.

“I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” Pence tweeted.

Several 49ers players reportedly knelt for the anthem on Sunday.

Last year, while a quarterback for the 49ers, Kaepernick sat or kneeled during the national anthem at football games, protesting the police treatment of minorities. 

 

No one is saying the prima donna jocks don’t have the right to act petulant.  Similarly, we have the right not to contribute to their inflated, ill-deserved salaries.

 

I predict this will be the “nexus” of drastic shift in an awakened public’s perspective and adoration of the football paradigm in modern cultural history.  “The Day the Vice-President Left Football.”  Let it resound!

Virtue is for Democrats…

’nuff said. Hypocrisy’s leftward tilt is indomitable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bret Stephens, neocon and former editor of The Jerusalem Post, uses the NYT as a platform to accelerate the American CWII.

They are relentless.  They know how to whittle away at public opinion. They are master manipulators of the collective cultural consciousness.

 

Bret Stephens, writing in a New York Times op-ed piece on Thursday, Repeal the Second Amendment, gets to the crux of the matter a few paragraphs in.  Can’t say we weren’t warned.  If we would only listen.

 

 

Repealing the Amendment may seem like political Mission Impossible today, but in the era of same-sex marriage it’s worth recalling that most great causes begin as improbable ones. Gun ownership should never be outlawed, just as it isn’t outlawed in Britain or Australia. But it doesn’t need a blanket Constitutional protection, either.

 

 

A Leftist, disguised as a Conservative, uttering an unspeakable refutation of this country’s essence. Since Donald Trump’s ascension, the Left’s dysfunction has seeped beyond the reasonable playing zones of yore, and it has unleashed dialogues that are astounding upon inception, but which, when volleyed about incessantly by the Leftist press and a gullible, consumerist American populace, become the norm and fixtures of cultural conversation. In time, the outlandish becomes the norm.  This is how the Left and all cultural Marxists roll. They don’t throw the full package at you;  they slowly drip their vile idealism into the pool of the collective mind and patiently wait for their aberrant motivations to usurp good sense.

 

Stephens begins,

 

 

I have never understood the conservative fetish for the Second Amendment.

 

From a law-and-order standpoint, more guns means more murder. “States with higher rates of gun ownership had disproportionately large numbers of deaths from firearm-related homicides,” noted one exhaustive 2013 study in the American Journal of Public Health.

 

 

No shit, Sherlock. I’m glad you don’t need to be a political commentator to grasp simple statistics. Perhaps we can direct our resources toward education and reinforcement of good gun-owning behavior instead of voiding civil rights. Why don’t we do away with the automobile as well? As we’ve witnessed, they are quite easily weaponized.  The elemental problem is a human behavioral one, not a mechanical one.

 

He continues.

 

 

From a national-security standpoint, the Amendment’s suggestion that a “well-regulated militia” is “necessary to the security of a free State,” is quaint. The Minutemen that will deter Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un are based in missile silos in Minot, N.D., not farmhouses in Lexington, Mass.

From a personal liberty standpoint, the idea that an armed citizenry is the ultimate check on the ambitions and encroachments of government power is curious. The Whiskey Rebellion of the 1790s, the New York draft riots of 1863, the coal miners’ rebellion of 1921, the Brink’s robbery of 1981 — does any serious conservative think of these as great moments in Second Amendment activism?

 

 

I’ll repeat, again (but the 2nd Amendment-hating Left will simply not let itself care or hear): the ostensible symbolism of the Second Amendment is not simply guns.

 

The Second Amendment, especially in this avowedly modern and “sophisticated” age, and owing in part to the very point that Stephens and others of his ilk defer when condescendingly asserting that gun rights are quaint and outdated, is a powerful and timeless guiding principle of the uniquely American experience. I am not a gun owner, and the last time I fired a handgun was at a shooting range 20 years ago, but I aggressively support the Second Amendment with all my soul because it is what makes America, America. The Left never tires of citing the disjunction between American gun culture and that of the rest of the world  As if the rest of the world is so idyllic for its lack of Constitutionally-ordained gun rights.

 

For better, and for worse, guns are an American fixture and our right to own guns is a dogmatic patriotic ideal that transcends fear and the tendency of human imperfection. The Left capitalizes on emotionalism and myopic tremulousness in order to perpetuate diminishing of liberty. The Left is feminine in its affect and seeks to salve pain through totalitarianism rather than assumption of discomfort in order to stand for something, anything, loftier than its own base existence.

 

For the Left, it’s comfort before principle. And aversion to toil, for a wise and tireless commitment to gun safety education and culling of the artificially-bolstered American populace, would go much further toward helping this country assure its continued tradition of liberty, as expressed by the right to bear firearms, than a stupid trail of petty laws and the emotionalism spawned every time something “bad” happens.

FBI Agent, Aaron Rouse, dies a little inside…

October 5th, 2017 by Socially Extinct

 

Las  Vegas sheriff, Joe Lombardo, certainly deviated from Fed-approved talking points during a quirky press conference yesterday.

 

LV Sheriff, Joe Lombardo

 

 

Las Vegas police said there was evidence gunman Stephen Paddock intended to survive and escape his deadly attack at a country music festival on Sunday, and revealed that he also rented an apartment overlooking another music festival that took place in the city the previous weekend.

 

The disclosures were among several new details revealed by Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, who also strayed into speculation that the man believed responsible for the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history had help.

 

“Do you think this was all accomplished on his own?” Lombardo asked, noting the arsenal of weapons the shooter amassed, and the discovery of explosives in his car. He added: “You’ve got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point.”

 

He said that that the suspected killer, a 64-year-old retiree and gambler, rented a luxury room through Airbnb overlooking the Life is Beautiful music festival, another Las Vegas festival which occurred the week before the Route 91 Harvest music festival he eventually targeted.

 

Lombardo also said he had seen evidence that Paddock may have intended to survive his killing spree from the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, which he used as a base for the attack. The sheriff did not say what the evidence was.

 

 

 

But FBI agent Aaron Rouse, yellow tie, to Lombardo’s left, was having none of this “noticing” on the Sheriff’s part.  In keeping with the “straying” motif that the MSM used to describe Lombardo’s comments, Rouse immediately sprang to PR damage control following Lombardo’s foray into reality.

 

The comment appeared to earn a veiled rebuke from the agent overseeing the FBI’s investigation.

 

“Theories are great and everyone can have a theory,” said Aaron Rouse, who runs the bureau’s Las Vegas division, and took to the lectern immediately after the sheriff’s comments. “But I need to deal with facts. The sheriff needs to deal with facts.” He added: “He’s not going to make assumptions. I’m not going to make assumptions.”

 

Rouse said the FBI was working with “a number of theories”, but was not prepared to publicize them. Rouse was considerably more cautious in his remarks than the sheriff, refusing to reveal what Danley said after she returned to the US Wednesday from the Philippines to be questioned by agents. The FBI agent declined even to say whether Danley remains “a person of interest”.

 

 

 

 

Sometimes, especially in the case of the FBI, it’s not the words we must pay attention to;  we should look at the furtive dancing of their eyes for true motivation.

The Left’s Paddock narrative struggles to break out…

October 4th, 2017 by Socially Extinct

 

According to New York’s paragon of journalistic integrity, New York Post, Stephen Paddock’s original “plans,” if not thwarted by fate, might have resulted in quite a different narrative, to say the least.

 

 

Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock may have had another target in mind.

 

Last weekend, he tried to rent a room overlooking a music festival a few miles away from the scene of his carnage Sunday, a law-enforcement source told The Post.

 

But Paddock couldn’t get a room that looked out onto the Life is Beautiful Festival, headlined by Chance the Rapper and Lorde and held in Sin City Sept. 22-24, the source said.

 

That festival was held several miles north of the Route 91 music festival that the cowardly Paddock sprayed with bullets from a 32nd-floor suite in the Mandalay Bay casino on Sunday.

 

 

This is truly a bizarro alternative reality that would have fed the racialist Left spoonfuls of its favorite morsel: victimization.

 

If Paddock had shot up this concert festival, the resounding Liberal uproar would have been deafening. We might have seen BLM riots in St. Louis and infantile antifa meltdowns in Berkeley. Life is Beautiful is assuredly more appealing to the Left and SJW set, and it would have played well into the Leftist dialog. There have been several “developments” (ie, Paddock was a Trump supporter) in the news lately that seem intent upon casting Paddock as a right-wing lunatic instead of a left-wing/Muslim lunatic, owing to his attack on a country music festival.
