Embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D., set Twitter ablaze Tuesday with a bizarre slideshow of him touching and kissing people during a pre-recorded denial that he sexually harassed multiple women.
“I do it with everyone. Black and White, young and old, straight and LGBTQ, powerful people, friends, strangers, people who I meet on the street,” Cuomo said as the slideshow played, providing evidence that he’s touched all sorts of people.
“Doing it to everyone does not make it OK,” Fox News’ Emily Compagno said Tuesday.
The slideshow showed Cuomo hugging, kissing or touching everyone from random New Yorkers to Robert De Niro and Bill Clinton.
“A slideshow of @NYGovCuomo kissing people does NOT negate that he sexually harassed his employees,” New York State Senator Alessandra Biaggi tweeted.
New York Attorney General Letitia James, D., announced her investigation into sexual harassment allegations against Cuomo, which included interviews with 179 people, found he had harassed and inappropriately touched 11 women in his orbit from 2013 to 2020.
Cuomo delivered a video address shortly after the release of the bombshell report that corroborated accounts of the accusers, nine of whom are current or former state employees. The allegations included claims that Cuomo made inappropriate comments or touched them without consent.
Cuomo also said his lawyer prepared a rebuttal document that responds to each of the attorney general’s office’s findings. The lengthy document features a variety of photographs – similar to the slideshow – of Cuomo touching and kissing various people, both men and women, to prove his interactions with accusers are no different than “thousands of similar interactions that he and other politicians” have had during their careers.
“Gov Andrew Cuomo: I Didn’t Harass Those Women, I’m Just Italian,” Spectator U.S. editor Amber Athey tweeted, mocking the governor’s denial.
Journalist Siraj Hashmi called the slideshow “psychotic,” while many questioned who was given the task of putting it together.
…Following James’ assessment that Cuomo had violated state and federal law through his conduct, the Albany County prosecutor said the governor is now under criminal investigation.
Why have the Democratic Elite, the Founders of the #MeToo Movement, been so quiet until now about the allegations of sexual abuse against a Democrat Governor accused by numerous women of Sexual Harassment?
What happened to “Every woman has a right to be heard”?
Does the presumption of guilt involving a claim of sexual abuse only hold true if the accused is a Conservative Republican?
Or, considering Harvey Weinstein and Matt Lauer, only if they are not the presumptive Democratic President Candidate?
Isn’t it funny how things have come back to bite all of the self-righteous Democrats in Washington, New York, and Hollywood right in the gluteus maximus?
As Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1991, Biden presided over the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, where Anita Hill’s accusations of Sexual Harassment against the then-nominee took center stage.
Of course, Biden now expresses regret that he was not able to do more for Anita Hill.
Remember the accusations of Sexual Harassment made against then-Democrat Presidential Candidate Joe Biden by Tara Reade?
Reade was one of eight women who came forward last year (2018) with allegations that Biden made them feel uncomfortable with inappropriate displays of affection. Biden acknowledged the complaints at the time and promised to be “more mindful about respecting personal space in the future.”
Can you say “hypocrite”, boys and girls?
Biden was solidly behind the accusers in the cases of Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh, who were both nominated by Republican Presidents to be on the Supreme Court.
Merely the fact that they were Republican Nominees made them guilty as sin in his eyes.
During any situation in which someone the Republicans back is accused of Sexual Harassment, the Democrats automatically insist that Americans “Believe the Women”!
In the case of Serial Sexual Harasser Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Biden and the Democrats have been like
“I think the investigation is underway and we should see what it brings us.”
Now, Biden, Pelosi, de Blasio, and the rest of the Democrat Elite want him to resign.
As my 13-tear old grandson would say,
Impeach the pervert.
Both of them.

Newsmax.com reports that
An aide to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he groped her in the governor’s residence, a newspaper reported Wednesday, in the most serious allegation made yet by a series of women against the embattled Democrat.
The Times Union of Albany reported that the woman, who it did not name, was alone with Cuomo late last year when he closed the door, reached under her shirt and fondled her. The newspaper’s reporting is based on an unidentified source with direct knowledge of the woman’s accusation. The governor had summoned her to the Executive Mansion in Albany, saying he needed help with his cellphone, the newspaper reported.
“I have never done anything like this,” Cuomo said through a spokesperson Wednesday evening.
“The details of this report are gut-wrenching,” Cuomo said, adding that he would not speak to the specifics of this or any other allegation, given an ongoing investigation overseen by the state attorney general.
The three-term governor faces harassment allegations from several other women and increasingly urgent calls for his resignation or impeachment from at least some fellow Democrats. Cuomo has repeatedly said he won’t resign.
“He’s openly said he will not resign. And with further mounting allegations that are deeply credible, we are in a position now where I think we should impeach,” said Assembly member Jessica González-Rojas, a Democrat who had previously pushed for his resignation.
The woman whose account was reported by the Times Union said Cuomo had touched her and made flirtatious comments on multiple occasions. According to the newspaper, her allegations came to light as Cuomo staffers watched the governor’s March 3 news conference, his first after a new round of sexual harassment claims made in late February.
In it, he denied ever touching a woman inappropriately. The aide subsequently became emotional, and told a female supervisor who approached her about her encounters with the governor. At least one supervisor reported the allegation to an attorney in the governor’s office Monday, the newspaper reported.
Prior to Wednesday’s report, the allegations against Cuomo include a combination of claims that he made the workplace an
Not only is Governor Cuomo a horn-dog and a liar, he is also a world class hypocrite.
TheHill.com reported on January 8th that
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Friday became the latest political leader to call for President Trump to resign after a pro-Trump mob raided the Capitol on Wednesday.
“I call on President Trump to resign,” Cuomo wrote on Twitter. “If he refuses, I call for impeachment.”
In a press conference, the governor voiced support for Trump’s resignation or possible impeachment, adding that he calls on “every New York federal elected official to call for President Trump’s immediate resignation.”
“Put principle over party. There’s no elected official that can look in the mirror and say ‘I condone what happened. I condone what the president did,’ ” he added, according to CBS’s Rochester-affiliate station, WROC-TV.
If the Governor of New York was a Republican instead of a Democrat, he would already have been impeached over the COVID-19 Nursing Home Deaths.
Cuomo was raised in a life of privilege and wealth, a product of New York politics.
Like a lot of wealthy and privileged men, it appears that he viewed the young women around him as “playthings” to be used and discarded, meant to be added to his trophy case.
After all, being the son of the Former Governor of New York, Mario Cuomo, does have its perks.
He was a media darling, always in front of the camers.
So, when the pandemic hit, he decided to do a daily update, as if he were the President of the United States of America.
His “leadership” was praised by the Main Stream Media, some calling for him to run for President.
Like the other Democrats, Never Trumpers, and the Main Stream Media, Cuomo in his never-ending quest to find a camera to mug at and a microphone to use to gain national attention, decided that he wanted to join in the chorus to impeach a President who was no longer in office.
And now, that cry for impeaching Trump a second time has boomeranged back on him.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called Wednesday’s Supreme Court ruling favoring religious organizations in a dispute over COVID-19 restrictions, “irrelevant” and not “final” while arguing that the decision is really more of a statement on the court’s new conservative bent.
“They wanted to make a statement that it’s a different court. That’s the statement they’re making, I understand that. And that’s to be expected,” Cuomo said during a Thanksgiving Day call, alluding to the impact of the recent addition of Justice Amy Coney Barrett on the bench without calling her by name.
“We know who we appointed to the court. We know their ideology. It’s irrelevant from a practical impact because the zone that they were talking about has already been moved. It expired last week. I think this was really just an opportunity for the court to express its philosophy and politics,” he said.
In a 5-4 ruling Wednesday the high court temporarily blocked New York’s COVID-19 restrictions on houses of worship, arguing that they “strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty.”
The court said that the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and Agudath Israel of America are likely to succeed in their arguments that the restrictions violate the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment and that they would cause irreparable harm. The groups had sued Cuomo over his executive order limiting worship gatherings to 10 people for those in red zones and 25 for those in orange zones.
Cuomo argued on Thursday that the dispute isn’t settled.
“The decision isn’t final in the first place right. It goes back to the Second Circuit Appeals Court so it’s not even a final legal position. Second, it didn’t affect our mass gathering rules that 25%, 33 etc. So it didn’t mention those. It didn’t mention the overall limits. I think the basic point is you know why does the court rule on an issue that is moot unless — and which they had just decided several months before in other cases which presented the same argument — why rule on a case that is moot and come up with a different decision than you did several months ago on the same issue? You have a different court and I think that was the statement that the court was making,” he argued.
He further noted that while he values the role of the church in society, there is also a need to protect public health amid the pandemic.
“In terms of religious gatherings, look, I’m a former altar boy. Catholic grammar school, Catholic high school, Jesuit college. So I fully respect religion and if there’s a time in life when we need it, the time is now, but we want to make sure we keep people safe at the same time. That’s the balance we’re trying to hit, especially through this holiday season and the coming Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, etc. celebrations,” he said.
In support of the court’s decision, Justice Neil Gorsuch noted that religious groups are treated differently from secular entities. He wrote in his opinion: “It is time – past time – to make plain that, while the pandemic poses many grave challenges, there is no world in which the Constitution tolerates color-coded executive edicts that reopen liquor stores and bike shops but shutter churches, synagogues, and mosques.”
The Thomas More Society, which has been fighting COVID-19 restrictions on religion across the nation, including the ongoing lawsuit against Cuomo on behalf of Catholic and Orthodox Jewish worshipers, praised the recent Supreme Court decision.
“The Supreme Court has made it clear that governors can no longer use a public health emergency as a pretext for dictates shutting or severely restricting the use of houses of worship while secular businesses and activities they deem ‘essential’ — and even certain favored ‘non-essential’ secular businesses and activities — are not subjected to the same draconian restrictions. What is considered ‘safe’ for grocery stores, liquor stores and massage parlors, must be considered safe for churches and synagogues,” Thomas More Society Special Counsel Christopher Ferrara said in a statement to The Christian Post.
“The Court has also ended reliance on the outdated Jacobson decision, a 115-year-old anachronism, which over the past eight months has morphed into a kind of super-precedent for any sort of restriction on constitutional freedoms governors feel like imposing during a public health crisis. Religious liberty has been rescued from the brink of extinction in the name of COVID-19, a virus with a 99.8% survival rate,” he added.
The Conservative Majority serving in the Supreme Court are absolutely right.
CHURCHES ARE ESSENTIAL.
Christianity has played a predominant role in the building of our nation. In fact, the Capitol building itself was used for church services, even before Congress moved into the building, and continued to be used for Sunday Church Services until well after the Civil War.
The approval of the Capitol for church was given by both the House and the Senate on December 4, 1800, with House approval being given by Speaker of the House, Theodore Sedgwick, and Senate approval being given by the President of the Senate, Thomas Jefferson, whose approval came while he was still officially the Vice- President but after he had just been elected President.
According to David Barton at wallbuilders.com:
Jefferson attended church at the Capitol while he was Vice President 5 and also throughout his presidency. The first Capitol church service that Jefferson attended as President was a service preached by Jefferson’s friend, the Rev. John Leland, on January 3, 1802. 6 Significantly, Jefferson attended that Capitol church service just two days after he penned his famous letter containing the “wall of separation between church and state” metaphor.
U. S. Rep. Manasseh Cutler, who also attended church at the Capitol, recorded in his own diary that “He [Jefferson] and his family have constantly attended public worship in the Hall.” Mary Bayard Smith, another attendee at the Capitol services, confirmed: “Mr. Jefferson, during his whole administration, was a most regular attendant.” She noted that Jefferson even had a designated seat at the Capitol church: “The seat he chose the first Sabbath, and the adjoining one (which his private secretary occupied), were ever afterwards by the courtesy of the congregation, left for him and his secretary.” Jefferson was so committed to those services that he would not even allow inclement weather to dissuade him; as Rep. Cutler noted: “It was very rainy, but his [Jefferson’s] ardent zeal brought him through the rain and on horseback to the Hall.” Other diary entries confirm Jefferson’s attendance in spite of bad weather.
…Jefferson was not the only President to attend church at the Capitol. His successor, James Madison, also attended church at the Capitol. 14 However, there was a difference in the way the two arrived for services. Observers noted that Jefferson arrived at church on horseback 15 (it was 1.6 miles from the White House to the Capitol). However, Madison arrived for church in a coach and four. In fact, British diplomat Augustus Foster, who attended services at the Capitol, gave an eloquent description of President Madison arriving at the Capitol for church in a carriage drawn by four white horses.
The series of cacophonous thuds you just heard were the “I’m-smarter than-you” Atheists from both sides of the aisle, falling off their chairs. You see, they (all 8% of them) will argue until they are blue in the face that Jefferson and Madison were not Christians, and our founding documents were not based on a Judeo-Christian system of beliefs.
Then, they go out to feed the unicorn in their backyard.
Jefferson told his friend, William Bradford (who served as Attorney General under President Washington), to make sure of his own spiritual salvation:
[A] watchful eye must be kept on ourselves lest, while we are building ideal monuments of renown and bliss here, we neglect to have our names enrolled in the Annals of Heaven.
Concerning Christianity, Jefferson said:
The doctrines of Jesus are simple, and tend all to the happiness of man.
The practice of morality being necessary for the well being of society, He [God] has taken care to impress its precepts so indelibly on our hearts that they shall not be effaced by the subtleties of our brain. We all agree in the obligation of the moral principles of Jesus and nowhere will they be found delivered in greater purity than in His discourses.
I am a Christian in the only sense in which He wished anyone to be: sincerely attached to His doctrines in preference to all others.
I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ.
But, what about Jefferson’s re-writing of the Bible, leaving out Jesus’ miracles, you ask? David Barton answered that question in 2001, in a letter to a newspaper, in response to a reader:
The reader, as do many others, claimed that Jefferson omitted all miraculous events of Jesus from his “Bible.” Rarely do those who make this claim let Jefferson speak for himself. Jefferson’s own words explain that his intent for that book was not for it to be a “Bible,” but rather for it to be a primer for the Indians on the teachings of Christ (which is why Jefferson titled that work, “The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth”). What Jefferson did was to take the “red letter” portions of the New Testament and publish these teachings in order to introduce the Indians to Christian morality. And as President of the United States, Jefferson signed a treaty with the Kaskaskia tribe wherein he provided—at the government’s expense—Christian missionaries to the Indians. In fact, Jefferson himself declared, “I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus.” While many might question this claim, the fact remains that Jefferson called himself a Christian, not a deist.
The other Founding Father whom Atheists claim was one of them is James Madison.
Per David Barton:
James Madison trained for ministry with the Rev. Dr. John Witherspoon, and Madison’s writings are replete with declarations of his faith in God and in Christ. In fact, for proof of this, one only need read his letter to Attorney General Bradford wherein Madison laments that public officials are not bold enough about their Christian faith in public and that public officials should be “fervent advocates in the cause of Christ.” And while Madison did allude to a “wall of separation,” contemporary writers frequently refuse to allow Madison to provide his own definition of that “wall.” According to Madison, the purpose of that “wall” was only to prevent Congress from passing a national law to establish a national religion.
Also, as this writing shows, Madison wanted all public officials – including Bradford – to be unashamed concerning their Christian beliefs and testimony:
I have sometimes thought there could not be a stronger testimony in favor of religion or against temporal enjoyments, even the most rational and manly, than for men who occupy the most honorable and gainful departments and [who] are rising in reputation and wealth, publicly to declare their unsatisfactoriness by becoming fervent advocates in the cause of Christ; and I wish you may give in your evidence in this way.
Did you know that Madison was a member of the committee that authored the 1776 Virginia Bill of Rights and approved of its clause declaring that:
It is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity toward each other. ?
And, per Barton, Madison’s proposed wording for the First Amendment demonstrates that he opposed only the establishment of a federal denomination, not public religious activities. The proposal reads:
The civil rights of none shall be abridged on account of religious belief or worship, nor shall any national religion be established.
But, wait. There’s more:
In 1789, Madison served on the Congressional committee which authorized, approved, and selected paid Congressional chaplains.
In 1812, President Madison signed a federal bill which economically aided a Bible Society in its goal of the mass distribution of the Bible.
Finally, throughout his Presidency (1809-1816), Madison endorsed public and official religious expressions by issuing several proclamations for national days of prayer, fasting, and thanksgiving.
So, if you run into one of those individuals who, like NY Governor Andrew Cuomo and the Communist Mayor of New York City, BIll di Blasio, when it comes to accepting the Faith of our Founding Fathers, proves that denial is not just a river in Egypt, you can respond with one or all of three things:

President Trump on Tuesday threatened the federal funding for Seattle, Portland, New York City, and Washington as part of an effort to target “anarchist jurisdictions” that he claims have “permitted violence and the destruction of property” during recent protests.
In a memo to the attorney general and the White House budget director, the president called for a review of all federal funds provided to Seattle, Portland, New York City and Washington, D.C., saying, “it is imperative that the federal government review the use of federal funds by jurisdictions that permit anarchy, violence, and destruction in America’s cities.”
All four cities have experienced varying amounts of violence and destruction of property amid the summer-long protests against police brutality, systemic racism and Trump himself.
“My administration will not allow federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones,” Trump wrote in the memo.
The memo comes as Trump, running for reelection, has accused Democrats of being weak on the issue and has emphasized a law-and-order message. (In a campaign appearance Tuesday, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said, “protesting is a right and free speech is a right, but to engage in violence, burning, looting, and the rest, in the name of protesting, is wrong.”)
“My administration will do everything in its power to prevent weak mayors and lawless cities from taking federal dollars while they let anarchists harm people, burn buildings, and ruin lives and businesses,” the president tweeted Tuesday night. “We’re putting them on notice today.”
The Trump memo calls for the director of the Office of Management and Budget, within 14 days, to issue guidance to the heads of executive departments and agencies to submit a report detailing all federal funds provided to Seattle, Portland, New York City, Washington D.C.
“The federal government provides states and localities with hundreds of billions of dollars every year, which fund a wide array of programs, such as housing, public transportation, job training, and social services,” the memo says. “These funds have been collected from American taxpayers who entrusted their money to the federal government to serve our communities and our citizens.”
The memo also calls for “identifying anarchist jurisdictions” in the United States, calling on the attorney general to publish a list of state and local jurisdictions that have “permitted violence and the destruction of property to persist and have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract these criminal activities.”
After such localities are identified, the memo calls for the budget director to issue guidance on how to restrict the eligibility of funding for these “anarchist jurisdictions” in receiving federal grants.
It remains to be seen what impact the effort will have.
On Monday night, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called Trump’s effort an “illegal stunt.”
“President Trump has actively sought to punish NYC since day one. He let COVID ambush New York. He refuses to provide funds that states and cities MUST receive to recover. He is not a king. He cannot “defund” NYC,” the Democrat wrote on Twitter.
It’s about time.
For months now, spineless local officials like Portland’s Mayor Ted Wheeler have done nothing as their cities have been taken over by a bunch of spoiled brats and wannabe anarchists who have never had a board of education applied to their seat of knowledge.
You mix a bunch of programmed Marxist Pee Wee Hermans with anti-social psychopaths and you get the bunch of useful idiots now known as Antifa and BLM.
With no regard for their fellow man, the blessings of having been born an American, or the hard work of others before them which have provided all of the luxuries which these brats have enjoyed in their brief lives, they have set out on a path of destruction which has been passively and actively supported by the Main Stream Media and the Far Left Democratic Party.
Thank God that the overwhelming majority of Americans think that the spoiled brats of Antifa and BLM are a bunch of scumbags, otherwise, our Sovereign Nation would be history.
President Trump is well within his rights as a President to examine how the hard-earned money of American Taxpayers is spent.
Giving enormous amounts of OUR money to bail out feckless inept local Democrat Politicians like Cuomo and de Blasio would be a bad investment and would not be acceptable.
All along, President Trump has offered his help to stop the violence and destruction plaguing these cities and, at very turn, he has been rejected by Democratic Politicians who somehow thought that blaming him for the riots would make him look bad to American Voters and get them off the hook at the same time.
They overestimated themselves.
It actually had the opposite effect.
And, the icing on the cake was when he ignored the local politicians in Wisconsin and toured riot-ravaged Wisconsin, with news cameras rolling so that the entire nation could see what Democratic Politicians had allowed to happen to Americans.
So now, Biden, who criticized Trump for touring Kenosha, is going to go there himself, an attempt to “catch up” which will prove to be too little, too late.
The Democrat Leaders of these cities and the states which they are located in, thought that they could have their cake and eat it, too, by turning their back on the American citizens affected by the riots which they did nothing about, while they insulted and criticized Trump, still expecting him to bail them out with federal funds.
You play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

The White House was under a brief lockdown Friday night as protests erupted across the country over the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, bringing tensions to a boiling point and forcing one of the Twin Cities to issue a curfew while demonstrators clashed with police across the U.S.
Fox News and other members of the press were immediately moved inside as the White House went into lockdown. A dozen reporters were said to be inside the West Wing. One of the protestors was later taken into custody by the Secret Service outside the White House Friday night.
Floyd, a black man, died in police custody this week after a white officer pinned him down by pressing his knee into the back of Floyd’s neck while Floyd repeatedly said he couldn’t breathe. The officer, Derek Chauvin, was fired and on Friday was charged with murder. Three other police officers were also fired but have not been charged.
Minneapolis authorities have imposed an overnight curfew in an attempt to prevent more destruction and, at time, violent protests that had pursued for three days.
The Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct was broken into by a crowd of protesters and set fire, Thursday night.
Protests have broken out across the country. In Atlanta, demonstrators spray-painted and broke windows of CNN’s Atlanta headquarters.
One protester climbed up onto the CNN building and waived a “black lives matter” sign as hundreds of other protesters pelted police with bottles.
Police officers reportedly backed their lines away and ordered the protesters to leave, threatening arrest if they did not.
Several of the bottles thrown contained accelerate, and an American flag was lit on fire as protestors yelled at the police, “Quit your jobs.”
Protesters later threw rocks and smoke grenades into the lobby and fired BB rounds, according to reporters on the ground.
The protest reportedly started peacefully and quickly became destructive after there was an interaction between a police officer and a protester outside the headquarters.
Protesters climbed onto parked police vehicles, smashed the windows and lit one of the cars on fire.
A firecracker was also thrown at police officers barricading the CNN Center.
Several buildings in the downtown area in Atlanta have been vandalized, according to local news outlets.
Large crowds also took to the streets in New York City for the second day Friday. Roughly 70 people were arrested after the protests became rowdy, traffic was shut down and several police officers were injured.
NYPD officers reportedly became violent using their nightsticks and pepper spray outside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn Friday night.
Some of the protesters were said to be carrying brass knuckles and knives, while others reportedly threw trash and garbage cans at NYPD officers.
Protesters chanted “I can’t breathe” — the last words of Eric Garner, who died in police custody in 2014 after being taken down by NYPD officers on Staten Island, drawing a parallel to Floyd’s death earlier this week.
Hundreds of people turned up in Charlotte, N.C., to march in protest Friday night. But the demonstrations turned destructive as at least one police car tire was slashed and several windows were broken at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police substation, according to a local news outlet.
Police officers responded by throwing tear gas at protesters and several people have been arrested, the police department said.
A demonstration in Denver also turned violent Friday and three people were taken into custody.
“Let not the story be about the riots and protests. Let’s keep the focus on the life that was lost,” Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said.
“I want to express our nation’s deepest condolences and most heartfelt sympathies to the family of George Floyd,” President Trump said at a roundtable Friday. “I spoke to members of the family, terrific people.”
Andy Ngo, the journalist who was attacked by an Antifa Group has reported that Antifa and Back Lives Matter are both involved in the riots we are witnessing.
If you go to RefuseFascism.org, an Antifa organization, you will find this statement
“Refuse Fascism will be in the streets demanding justice for George Floyd. We call on anyone, from any race, who is standing on the sidelines right now to join the chorus of outrage and raise your voices.”
On Thursday, April 27th, 2017, the following information was posted in an article found on gatewaypundit.com…
Violent domestic terrorist Bill Ayers is officially linked to Antifa through his group “Refuse Fascism”.
Ayers is infamous for the Weather Underground, a domestic terror organization he co-founded with other degenerates, and for bombing the Pentagon.
“Refuse Fascism“, a fascist organization that wishes to inhibit and deny the speech of conservatives, is partly funded by George Soros. It has organizers like Bill Ayers and is targeting youth across the country with the intention of indoctrinating and brainwashing individuals who nascent politically. We know Ayers was associated with Barrack Obama and is a big supporter of various socialists and communists as well as violent terrorists.
Today, it has come out that Ayers is partnering with Antifa in the spread of militant violence against pro-America demonstrators. Leftists have historically turned Ayers into a folklore figure who they cherish and respect despite his violent past.
The anti-police Black Lives Matter movement started in 2014 following the shooting death of black youth Michael Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson.
Rioting and violent protests erupted nationwide after a grand jury refused to indict Wilson, saying he acted in self-defense. Residents of the predominantly black community of Ferguson, Missouri, claimed officer Wilson was let off because of systemic racism.
In 2014, then-president Barack Obama’s Department of Justice later cleared officer Darren Wilson of any wrongdoing.
Billionaire investor George Soros has donated millions of dollars to Black Lives Matter through his Open Society Foundation.
George Soros has financed “protestors” for years now, going as far as trying to infiltrate Republican Nominee Donald J. Trump’s Campaign Rallies before he 2016 Presidential Election.
His deep involvement in the Ferguson Riots, along with his funding of Back Lives Matter and Antifa Groups like Refuse Fascism reveals a pattern of behavior which makes him the likely money behind the “spontaneous” protests which have erupted in cities like Minneapolis, Chicago, New York, Atlanta, and Los Angeles and across the street from the White House.
In my opinion, it is time to freeze the assets of George Soros and to deport him from our Sovereign Nation which he seeks to “radically change”…
…while we still have a Constitutional Republic left.

FoxNews.com reports that
With New York City’s lockdown executive order set to expire on May 15, Gov. Andrew Cuomo celebrated a steep decline in hospitalizations and deaths due to the coronavirus during Sunday’s daily briefing with reporters — even as he sought to address the state’s sky-high nursing home death count, which came after a state directive mandating that nursing homes take on positive COVID-19 patients.
Cuomo said new hospitalizations were roughly where they were on March 20, when the “New York State on Pause” executive order locked down the state. And, the number of deaths in the state — just 203 on Saturday — was similar to where it was in late March, as well.
The numbers “take us right back to where we started this hellish journey,” Cuomo said. “March 20 is when we did the close down order, and where we are today with the number of new cases is basically right where we were when we started.”
“It’s all thanks to what New Yorkers did,” he added.
This weekend, Cuomo extended New York’s coronavirus emergency declaration through June 6, but the “pause” order is still set to expire within days. Locales in New York can begin slowly reopening on May 15, depending on a variety of factors — including the rolling average of new coronavirus cases, the daily rate of decline of hospitalizations and testing per capita.

Cuomo said he would have more to say about the pause order on Monday.
He further announced on Sunday that all nursing home staff must now be tested for COVID-19 twice a week, saying, “this rule is not optional — it’s mandatory.”
Cuomo also issued a new directive stating that hospitals cannot send patients back to nursing homes in the state unless they tested negative for the virus. The move appeared to largely invalidate his March 25 state directive that required nursing homes to take on new patients infected with COVID-19.
The previous directive stated that “[nursing homes] are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.”
The policy, similar to one in neighboring New Jersey, was intended to help free up hospital beds for the sickest patients as cases surged.
Now, “we’re just not going to send a person who is positive to a nursing home after a hospital visit,” Cuomo said Sunday. He said such patients would be accommodated elsewhere, such as sites originally set up as temporary hospitals.
The new policy still allows nursing homes to take some people with COVID-19, such as those who are at home and need care. But hospitals are responsible for finding alternatives for the patients they discharge, and nursing facilities shouldn’t take on coronavirus patients if unable to care for them, Cuomo said.
Stephen Hanse, the president and CEO of the New York State Health Facilities Association and the New York State Center for Assisted Living, told Fox News in a statement that “we are grateful that hospitals can no longer discharge new patients into nursing homes that have tested positive or were suspected to have COVID-19.”
“From the onset of this pandemic, nursing homes and assisted living providers have been on the front lines of the battle,” Hanse said. “The only way we will defeat this virus is working together with the State to ensure all nursing homes and assisted living providers are afforded the necessary resources to accomplish this goal.”
Hanse added: “The State’s action today acknowledges the concerns providers voiced over the March 25th Department of Health advisory and we must continue to work together to implement solutions to assist long-term care providers. We are all in this together, and together, all of our actions must be directed at safeguarding our most vulnerable and lead us to overcome our present circumstances and create a stronger and safer future.”
Previously, Cuomo has seemed dismissive and resigned to defeat when asked about his state leading the nation in nursing-home deaths.
Of the nation’s more than 26,000 coronavirus deaths in nursing homes and long-term care facilities, a fifth of them — about 5,300 — are in New York, according to a count by The Associated Press, and the toll has been increasing by an average of 20 to 25 deaths a day for the past few weeks.
…One key criticism is that New York took weeks after the first known care home outbreaks to begin publicly reporting the number of deaths in individual homes — and still doesn’t report the number of cases. By the time New York began disclosing the deaths in the middle of last month, the state had several major outbreaks with at least 40 deaths each, most of which were a surprise to the surrounding communities and even some family members.
“They should have announced to the public: ‘We have a problem in nursing homes. We’re going to help them, but you need to know where it is,'” said former New York Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey, a Republican now heading the nonprofit Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths. “Instead, they took the opposite tack: They hid it.”
My mother passed on Christmas Eve Morning in 19971, having spent the last year of her life in a nursing home, bedridden from complications of Diabetes.
What Governor Cuomo did by bringing COVID-19 patients into nursing homes in New York State was so horrible and unfeeling, it reminds me of a quote by the title character in Charles Dickens’ Classic book “Scrooge” after a conversation with two gentlemen from the charitable society seeking a contribution to help the poor at Christmas.
Ebeneezer Scrooge’s response was
“If they would rather die, they’d better do it, and decrease the surplus population”
Callousness is definitely a character trait of New York’s Democratic Governor.
In January of 2019, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a bill legalizing abortion for basically any reason up to birth.
Cuomo and New York City’s Communist Mayor Bill de Blasio make quite a pair.
The following observation appeared in an article posted on WashingtonExaminer.com back in March…
Why is it that New Yorkers aren’t heeding public health recommendations for socially distancing to protect the most vulnerable members of the community, as advised by every major public health leader and organization? It has something to do with who’s steering the ship. Appallingly, the day after strict restrictions were applied to New York City businesses and schools, the mayor refused to change his behavior and made his way to the YMCA gym.

Liberals on Social Media Platforms like Facebook are holding up New York State and City as the example which every state and city in America should pattern their response to the Chinese Coronavirus from.
These people are off their meds.
New York City has nothing in common with Amarillo, Texas, Bainbridge, Georgia, Horn Lake, Mississippi or ANY town or city in America’s Heartland.
To be blunt, we don’t ride around underground on subway trains packed like a can of sardines on its way to a grocery shelf.
And, we sure as h@ll would not have elected a cop-hating Communist who gives his wife unbelievably high-paying jobs on the taxpayer’s dime.
At this point, all New York City is, is an example of what a failure “Democratic Socialism” would be, if America elected a Democrat as President this November.
We down here in “Flyover Country” appreciate all of the “concern” from “the smartest people in the room”.
But, as President Ronald Reagan said so eloquently,
“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t need it and hell where they already have it.”
So, y’all can keep your “advice” to yourselves.

FoxNews.com reports that
The White House coronavirus task force on Tuesday pleaded with Americans to abide by the administration’s extended social distancing guidelines to slow the spread of coronavirus as a somber President Trump told Americans to brace for “a very painful two weeks” and warned of thousands of more virus-related deaths.
“The surge is coming, and it’s coming pretty strong,” the president said in the White House briefing room in a lengthy press conference that lasted more than two hours.
The extension of the social distancing guidelines comes after Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and other public health officials on the White House coronavirus task force ominously warned that even if the U.S. were to continue to do what it was doing — keeping the economy closed and most Americans in their homes — the coronavirus could still leave 100,000 to 240,000 people in the United States dead and millions infected.
Without any measures in place to mitigate the contagion’s spread, those projections jump to between 1.5 and 2.2 million deaths from COVID-19.
“It is absolutely critical for the American people to follow the guidelines,” Trump said during the briefing. “It’s a matter of life and death.”
The new “30 Days to Slow the Spread” guidelines — unveiled at the press conference — are an extension of the strategy the White House implemented just over two weeks ago and include guidance on social distancing, working from home, washing hands frequently, and avoiding any unnecessary travel.
While Trump sought to reassure Americans that the country would ultimately get through the pandemic, he declined to sugarcoat the severity of the pandemic and said that the battle against the contagion will be worse in the upcoming weeks.
“This is going to be a rough two week period,” Trump said. “As a nation we’re going to have a really rough two weeks. Our strength will be tested and our endurance will be tried.”
At another point, Trump said: “This could be a hell of a bad two weeks. This is going to be a very bad two or maybe even three weeks. This is going to be three weeks like we’ve never seen before.”
The change in tone marks an abrupt shift by Trump, who spent much of last week targeting April 12 as the day he wanted to see the country open and “raring to go” by Easter Sunday.
Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx the White House coronavirus response coordinator, said that the modeling of 100,000 to 240,000 deaths is still very possible, but Fauci said the federal government is working “very hard to bring that number down.” Birx added that the number of deaths could be blunted through proper medical care and social distancing.
The models predictions have the surge in deaths going into the summer.
“There’s no magic bullet, there’s no magic vaccine or therapy. It’s just behaviors,” Birx said, adding that it would be those behaviors that could change “the course of the viral pandemic.”
“As sobering a number as that it is, we should be prepared for that,” Fauci said. “No one is denying that we are going through a very difficult time right now.”
…For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. But for others, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause severe symptoms like pneumonia.
As I was watching Fox and Friends yesterday morning, they showed some graphs on how badly the Coronavirus has spread through New York and New Jersey.
That area has been hit so hard that 50% of all of the Coronavirus cases have occurred there.
The why seems to be obvious: people are packed like sardines in the area, living, shopping, and riding mass transit elbow to elbow.
However, there are some other reasons why the Coronavirus gained a foothold in that area.
One reason has to do with the idiotic Communist Mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio.
DailyCaller.com reported on March 25th that
“Since I’m encouraging New Yorkers to go on with your lives + get out on the town despite Coronavirus,” the Democrat told his Twitter followers on March 3, no more than two weeks before likening the outbreak to a type of World War that required nationalizing industries.
De Blasio offered some suggestions for what New Yorkers should do instead of social distancing.
“I thought I would offer some suggestions. Here’s the first: thru Thurs 3/5 go see “The Traitor,” he said, referring to a 2019 crime drama about the life and times of a Mafia mob boss.
However, Commie Bill wasn’t the only lousy public servant on the Democratic side during this crisis.
Everyone knows that President Trump put in place a travel ban to and from China at the end of January.
What were New York Democrat Reps. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and Jerry Nadler and Sen. Chuck Schumer doing at that time? Were they sounding the alarm that a Dangerous Chinese Coronavirus was coming?
Oh, heck no.
They were all running their mouths about the upcoming Impeachment Vote in their insane quest to somehow overturn the Presidential Election of November 8, 2016.
Only Governor Cuomo was telling New Yorkers of the potential peril.
And now, all he does is whine that he needs more ventilators and masks, even though thousands of ventilators have already been sent and stored out of sight somewhere to be recently found.
Even now, the Democrats’ Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, is trying to keep the President and the Coronavirus Taskforce Briefings from being seen on television by American citizens.
Americans are about to face two weeks of Hell.
I thank God that we have a President who tells us what’s coming instead of trying to lie about it, hide it from us, and potentially sacrifice our lives for the sake of political expediency like the Democrats and their minions in the MSM continue to do.
God Bless America.
Until He Comes,
Last night, the 45th President of the United States of America, after another long day of being attacked by the sore losers of the Democratic Party, announced the following decision on Twitter.
The President is not the first wealthy person to leave the Liberal State of New York and Far Left Liberal New York City due to the high tax rate and the downright hatred of Conservatives.
The Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, got the heck out of there years ago, he himself also moving to the Palm Beach, Florida Area, building a beautiful home and radio studio complex in West Palm Beach.
Ever since Trump announced that he was seeking to be the Republican Nominee as their Presidential Candidate, the Liberal Hoi Polloi, the New York City Media, and the New Bolsheviks as well, began treating the man who had done so much for the city of New York, like people in the time of Christ treated Lepers.
Just as Americans are witnessing daily regarding the Soviet-Style secret meetings being held by Rep. Adam Schiff and the House Democrats in their desperation to find something, ANYTHING, that will give them cause to formally Impeach President Trump, so are Americans living in the Heartland struck dumbfounded by the mindless obsessive hatred and self-righteous arrogance being shown by the opposition party politicians and their fellow travelers toward this American President who has accomplished more in 3 years than any president since Ronald Reagan.
It’s one thing not to like losing, I know that I never have.
However, to wish doom, death, and personal destruction on a man who has put more money in your pocket and provided more job opportunities to your family, while making Americans safer, makes about as much sense as setting your hair on fire and putting it out with a hammer.
I guess Liberal Democrats became used to bullying a President when “Dubya” was in office.
Trump will not be bullied or cowed.
I, for one, do not blame the President for leaving the nest of vipers that has grown exponentially all the way from Albany to a city that has affectionately been known in the past as “The Big Apple”.
I mean, once worms burrow their way into an apple, it becomes too rotten to stomach, doesn’t it?

“Calm down Liberals, no one is coming for your abortions, we just want common sense abortion control” – Greg Whalen
FoxNews.com reports that
The Missouri House on Friday approved a restrictive abortion bill that would ban abortions after the eighth week of pregnancy — one of a slew of similar bills in red states that have sparked a heated national debate on abortion rights.
The bill was passed by the Senate on Thursday, and now with approval from the House goes to Republican Gov. Mike Parson, who is expected to sign it.
The legislation would make Missouri one of the most restrictive states in the country for abortions. The bill includes exceptions for medical emergencies, but not for rape and incest. It also bans abortions based solely on race, sex or a diagnosis of potential Down Syndrome.
While women who have an abortion would not be prosecuted under the legislation, doctors could face as much as 15 years in prison for performing an abortion at eight weeks and beyond. Democrats opposed to the bill attacked the legislation in blistering terms.
“Laundry, bleach, acid bitter, concoction, knitting needles, bicycle spokes, ballpoint pens, jumping from the top of the stairs or the roof,” Democratic Rep. Sarah Unsicker said. “These are ways that women around the world who don’t have access to legal abortions perform their own.”
The bill’s passage in the House comes after Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed a law Wednesday that would outlaw almost all abortions, making performing one punishable by up to 99 years in prison unless the mother’s health is at risk. That law, too, did not grant exemptions in cases of rape or incest.
“This legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians’ deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God,” Ivey said in a statement.
In Georgia, Gov. Brian Kemp this month signed a “heartbeat” bill into law that prohibits abortions in the state after a heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. That bill does allow exceptions in case of rape, incest and if the life of the mother is in danger.
“Georgia is a state that values life,” Kemp said before putting his signature to the LIFE Act. “We stand up for those who are unable to speak for themselves.”
The bills mark the latest shots in a looming fight over the legacy of Roe v Wade. The Alabama bill was written in part to reignite the battle over the controversial 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion across the country. Ivey noted that the bill is unenforceable because of Roe v. Wade and won’t come into force unless it is overturned.
Kentucky, Mississippi and Ohio have also approved abortion bans once a heartbeat can be detected. Laws in North Dakota and Iowa have been struck down by the courts. Some conservatives hope that, with the Supreme Court having shifted to the right in light of the recent appointments of Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, there is now a chance the court will revisit Roe and overturn it.
But GOP Rep. Nick Schroer said the Missouri bill is “made to withstand judicial challenges and not cause them.”
“While others are zeroing in on ways to overturn Roe v. Wade and navigate the courts as quickly as possible, that is not our goal,” Schroer said. “However, if and when that fight comes we will be fully ready. This legislation has one goal, and that goal is to save lives.”
Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Leana Wen on Thursday accused Gov. Parson of riding the “disgraceful coattails of 25 white men in Alabama who just voted to ban safe, legal abortion.”
If the courts don’t allow Missouri’s legislation to take effect, it includes a series of less-restrictive time limits (14, 18 and 20 weeks) that may be more likely to win favor with the courts.
What did the Liberals expect when they began to legalize late term abortions up to the day of birth by passing laws such as the horrendous one signed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo?
Gentle readers, now more than ever, our Sovereign Nation has become a battleground in the struggle of Good vs. Evil.
If the fight over our nation’s sovereignty has not convinced you of that fact, than the political fights over the right to end a human life while it is still in its mother’s womb should.
However, the horrible actions of Governor Cuomo and his fellow Far Left Democrats should not surprise anyone.
In March, 2008, during a Townhall Meeting in Western Pennsylvania, Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) said,
Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesn’t make sense to not give them information.
Of course, Barack Hussein Obama was elected President of the United States. While he was “radically changing” everything about our sacred land, blood was being spilled across the fruited plains. Especially, in that same state of Pennsylvania:
On February 18, 2010, the FBI raided the “Women’s Medical Society,” run by Dr. Kermit Gosnell, a butcher, euphemistically killing babies under the title of “Abortion Doctor”.
The FBI entered the office about 8:30 p.m. expecting to find to find evidence that it was illegally selling prescription drugs. What they found was America’s Auschwitz:
There was blood on the floor. A stench of urine filled the air. A flea-infested cat was wandering through the facility, and there were cat feces on the stairs. Semi-conscious women scheduled for abortions were moaning in the waiting room or the recovery room, where they sat on dirty recliners covered with blood-stained blankets. All the women had been sedated by unlicensed staff. They also found out that a patient had died there several months earlier.
Until 2009, Gosnell reportedly performed mostly first and second trimester abortions. But his clinic had come to develop a bad reputation, and could attract only women who couldn’t get an abortion elsewhere, former employees have said. “Steven Massof estimated that in 40 percent of the second-trimester abortions performed by Gosnell, the fetuses were beyond 24 weeks gestational age,” the grand jury states. “Latosha Lewis testified that Gosnell performed procedures over 24 weeks ‘too much to count,’ and ones up to 26 weeks ‘very often.’ …in the last few years, she testified, Gosnell increasingly saw out-of-state referrals, which were all second-trimester, or beyond. By these estimates, Gosnell performed at least four or five illegal abortions every week.”
On January 22, 2013, Obama said,
On the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we reaffirm its historic commitment to protect the health and reproductive freedom of women across this country and stand by its guiding principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters, and women should be able to make their own choices about their bodies and their health care.
The Liberal mind is fascinating. Sick and twisted…but, fascinating. On the one hand, Obama was saying that children are to be cherished and protected. I agree.
At the same time, just like Speaker Pelosi did last year when she proclaimed that banning abortions would be “un-Christian”, Obama stood by a woman’s right to kill her baby.
I can hear the Liberals screeching right now.
That’s not a baby. It’s a fetus! It’s not the same thing! You chauvinist pig!
(Fetus is Latin for BABY)
If cherishing God’s gift of life makes me a “chauvinist pig”, you’re darned skippy I am! Yay, pigs! Sooey! That’s not a puppy growing in there, y’all.
The blatant hypocrisy that was shown by Obama, his loyal minions in Congress, and the MSM, the Liberal pundits on TV and Radio, and ignorant “seminar” callers and posters on Conservative websites, in defense of “their rights “not to be punished with a baby” and their resounding silence regarding the American Auschwitz known as the Gosnell Case, and now with the fact that Liberals are aghast at the fact that Conservatives dare to stand up to them on the side of life as they attempt to move toward killing babies both inside and outside of the womb is reminiscent of Germany in the 1930s…and positively chilling.
Remember a while back, when MSNBC Host, and resident Communist, Melissa Harris-Perry proclaimed,
…we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. Once it’s everybody’s responsibility, and not just the household’s, then we start making better investments. (?)
Evidently, for Modern American Liberals, that only applies when the child is no longer a “punishment”.
Some good news regarding Americans’ Views on abortion can be found in a post from TheHill.com, published less than one month before 2016’s President Election…
The most recent Marist Poll from this summer shows that a 53% majority of Americans support a strong pro-life policy of limiting abortions only to cases of rape, incest, or medical emergencies. An overwhelming 78% supermajority support, at a minimum, limiting abortion only to the first three months of pregnancy. Sixty-two of Americans oppose forcing taxpayers to foot the bill for abortions.
In the case of “Unlimited Abortion On Demand”, I believe that the overwhelming majority of average Americans have recognized the obvious.
As President Ronald Reagan observed, all those decades ago,
I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.
And that includes all the Molech worshippers in the Far Left Democratic Party…including their Propaganda Arm, the Main stream Media, their minions on Social Media and all of the professional politicians representing them on Capitol Hill.
In his Third Law of Motion, Sir Isaac Newton wrote that
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
These laws are the reaction to an out-of-control callous political ideology which has sought to treat human life as a disposable inconvenience.
Whether the laws remain as they are written or not, at least their passage has gotten a national conversation started.
At that’s a good thing…for the sake of the unborn.

Do countries with strong gun control laws have lower murder rates? Only if you cherry-pick the data. – Dr. Thomas Sowell
FoxNews.com reports that
London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced a tough crackdown on knives Sunday as the city reels from a spike in stabbings that have led its number of homicides to top New York City’s for two straight months.
He tweeted: “No excuses: there is never a reason to carry a knife. Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law.”
The tweet also included an action plan to boost police power and prevent future violence.
London has seen more than 50 homicides already in 2018.
Most of the city’s murder victims have been stabbed to death, as guns are tightly restricted in Britain and shootings are relatively rare.
If the bloody trend continues, London will far surpass the 130 murders in 2017 and reach a number not seen since the early 2000s.
In February and March, London hit the unwanted milestone of recording more homicides than New York, the first time in modern history, as Fox News previously reported.
The cities are roughly the same size, with more than 8 million people, and have similar extremes of poverty and wealth, but London has never recorded more murders in a year than the U.S. metropolis. New York had 290 homicides in 2017, the lowest number in decades.
There are multiple candidates to blame for the city’s rising homicide rate, investigators have said. Police and community workers say London’s surge is driven in part by battles over control of the illegal drug trade and a “postcode war” between street gangs.
There is another very real reason for all of the stabbings in “Londonistan”, gentle readers.
London, England like Chicago, Illinois has very strict gun control laws in place.
Therefore, those who wish to commit violence upon their fellow man or woman will naturally pick up another weapon. and, in the case of all these stabbings in Merry Ol’ London-town, the weapon of choice is the knife.
Somewhere along the line, the Liberals in the UK, including London’s “Moderate Muslim” Mayor convinced the citizenry that if they would allow their guns to be taken away and their right to own one to be restricted, then they would all be safe.
The guns do not fire themselves.
The knifes do not stab anyone.
It is the human being using these “tools” who commits wanton acts of violence with them. They are inanimate objects with no mind of their own.
…Like Rosie O’Donnell after a trip to the all-you-can-eat buffet.
But, I digress…
So, what will Mayor Khan suggest next? That the citizens of London give up their cutlery?
I read on a Facebook Political Page yesterday that according to an idiot self-proclaimed “historical expert”, guns would not have saved European Jews from Hitler’s “Final Solution”, otherwise known as the Holocaust.
I asked that little Liberal “precious flower” if she was saying that the European Jews would not have fought being loaded up on those horrible trains like cattle by the Nazis if they had had the means to fight them.
Of course, she never answered me.
Liberals have demonized firearms, as if they have a life of their own.
Alan Ladd as the Title Character in the Classic Western, “Shane” says to Marian, the mother of the little boy who idolizes him…
“A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that. “
If honest, capable Londoners had the “right to bear arms” that our Constitution provides for us, perhaps there would not be so many stabbing deaths occurring in Mayor Khan’s London.
Because then, London criminals would be bringing a knife to a gunfight.
