Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein was one of the major players behind the Brett Kavanaugh fiasco, having planned the abomination America saw play out on the small screen for months.

Feinstein is back in the news today, quietly introducing an assault weapons ban bill.

Maybe she thought we wouldn’t catch it?

From Free Beacon:

Democrats and Republicans introduced dueling gun proposals this week in the Senate with Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) pushing a new gun-ban proposal and Sen. John Cornyn (R., Tex.) attempting to expand gun-carry protections across the country.

Feinstein’s bill, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019, would ban the sale, manufacture, transfer, and importation of certain semiautomatic firearms. The text of the bill has not yet been released, but Feinstein’s office said it would ban any firearm capable of accepting a detachable magazine and either a “pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock.” Firearms fitting the description would become illegal to sell if the bill was passed but those already legally owned would remain legal but become subject to additional regulations. Transfers of so-called high capacity magazines would also be banned under the proposal, though the senator’s office didn’t specify what would constitute a “high capacity.”

“Last year we saw tens of thousands of students nationwide take to the streets to demand action to stop mass shootings and stem the epidemic of gun violence that plagues our communities,” Feinstein said in a statement. “Our youngest generation has grown up with active-shooter drills, hiding under their desks—and now they’re saying enough is enough. Americans across the nation are asking Congress to reinstate the federal ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. If we’re going to put a stop to mass shootings and protect our children, we need to get these weapons of war off our streets.”

Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell of California might just run for president in 2020.

The thing about Swalwell is that he’s a typical progressive.

He wants guns confiscated by any means.

He even suggested nuking Americans who fight back.

From Daily Wire:

Swalwell made the comment in response to a May news article on his radical plan that was widely recirculated on Twitter on Friday in which he called for a $15 billion government program to confiscate millions of guns from Americans.

More from Swalwell, who admitted to conservative Dana Loesch he wants to ban guns:

The 2020 Democrat presidential field is likely to be as crowded as the GOP’s in 2016.

Possible contenders include:

Former Vice President Joe Biden. Former Attorney General Eric Holder, the only cabinet-level official to ever be held in contempt of Congress.

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Fame-seeking lawyer Michael Avenatti.

Senators Kamala Harris (CA), Cory Booker (NJ), and Elizabeth Warren (MA).

Sens. Bernie Sanders (VT) and Amy Klobuchar (MN).

Former New York City Mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg, too.

Why not Swalwell?

Add Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., to what is expected to be a crowded field lining up to run against President Donald Trump in 2020, according to Politico.

“He’s definitely running,” a source told Politico, because Rep. Swalwell has not officially announced his intentions to campaign for president.

65 million people voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, and Texas Senate loser Beto O’Rourke just broke every single one of their hearts.

Beto has been caught lying about his mother being a “lifelong Republican” and saying he did not flee the scene of a hit and run accident (he actually did).

An undercover video reveals Beto’s team is using campaign funds to aid the migrant caravan making its way through Mexico to the United States.

Virginia Democrats Take A Step Back From Gun Control Plan After Receiving Major Backlash From Gun Owners

Published

on

Democrats in the state of Virginia have discovered that a great many folks who make up their constituency are supporters of the Second Amendment right to bear arms after they received massive backlash from gun owners after unveiling their gun control plan. Now, in light of the all the criticism, Democrats in the state have decided to take a step back from the proposal. Check out the details from TheBlaze: Democrats will assume control of the Virginia General Assembly next year, and lawmakers quickly began submitting gun control bills that previously had little-to-no chance of passage. Gun-rights advocates statewide responded by forming “sanctuary” counties in which enforcement of new gun control laws would be de-emphasized or neglected altogether. Monday, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam and incoming Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw said they were adding a “grandfather clause” into the proposed assault weapon ban, which would allow gun owners to keep weapons under the policy that were already legally owned — as long as they register them. “I’m not going to lock up a large part of Virginia,” Saslaw told the Virginia Mercury, acknowledging that a grandfather clause would “make sense.” Gun-rights activists in Virginia are not letting their guard down after what seems like a victory, being well aware of the fact that the left will keep pushing for further restrictions on the Second Amendment. Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League said, “We’ve been down this compromise road and their version of a compromise is they never give up anything. We are expected to give up something every time and we’re not doing it anymore. I think gun owners are tired of this and they’re gonna stand up and fight this stuff.”

President Trump Set To Create New Executive Order To Protect Jews On College Campuses

Published

on

President Trump has decided to take action against the rampant anti-Semitism that is rising up on college campuses across the country by signing an executive order designed to protect Jews on college campuses. The order will redefine Jews as more than a religious class, making them a nationality or ethnic group according to a new report that has been published by the Washington Post. Here are more details from TheBlaze: The updated classification will have a significant impact, allowing the government to consider anti-Semitic discrimination a violation of the Civil Rights Act. Specifically, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on race, ethnicity, and national origin. “There’s been a lot of unclarity surrounding the application of Title VI to Jewishness, basically, because of a question of about whether Jewishness is primarily a religion — in which case Title VI would not apply to anti-Semitic discrimination — or whether it’s a race or national origin. This EO will clarify that Title VI applies to anti-Semitism,” an administration official told reporters Tuesday, according to the Post. The New York Times reported that Trump decided to take action because Congress has long stalled bipartisan legislation meant to combat the problem. “Today’s executive order will have a real, positive impact in protecting Jewish college students from anti-Semitism,” Republican Jewish Coalition national chairman Norm Coleman told the Washington Free Beacon. The Post went on to report that the executive order mandates that the Department of Education use the definition of anti-Semitism created by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. That particular definition includes a bit that calls out folks who consider the existence of a State of Israel to be a racist endeavor, something that critics of the executive order have said will stifle the free speech of Palestinian activists who might desire…
