Steve Scalise’s Powerful 2A Argument Neutered by Dismissive Democrats

Ignorance may be bliss for the democrats, but a half-truth is still a lie…even if it occurs before Congress.

Thankfully, a massive majority of Americans have never been involved in a shootout, a gunfight, or a revolutionary war against a tyrannical government.

The sheer terror that one would face in any of these situations would be enough to change your views on the world around you, likely immediately, and irreversibly.  There are epiphany-laden lessons within these horrifying moments, however, and we would be wise to listen to those who have had the misfortune to experience them.

For instance, the well-manicured Constitution of the United States, which was written by men who not only faced a prolonged hail of British bullets, but were called upon to protect the rest of this burgeoning nation as well…including its women, children, elderly, and impaired.  This experience was so profound that it spawned one of the most powerful and well-articulated pieces of literature ever created – and one that includes the all-important Second Amendment.

And while few sane Americans are going to deny that the Founding Fathers were correct, we live in a nation today which is afraid of such harsh truths…particularly as it pertains to our right to bear arms.

This is precisely what Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise is worried about, and why he appeared on Breitbart Radio to explain the democratic blackballing of his own harrowing experience.

Scalise said, “They’re moving a gun control bill this week. The Democrats have, with their hard shift to the left, they’re already moving towards taking away the right to law-abiding citizens to have a gun. So we’re having a hearing on gun violence in the new Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee, and Doug Collins, the Republican on our side, wanted me to be one of the witnesses to testify.”

Scalise explained, “Historically, if a member of Congress — Republican or Democrat — wants to testify before a committee and they have something unique to say, we provide that venue from him to do it. We’ve done it in the past when were were in the majority, and Democrats in the previous majority did. For whatever reason, the Democrat in charge of the committee says he won’t let me testify in that same forum. [He is] trying to block my testimony on gun violence. How ridiculous is that?”

Scalise added, “The irony is, can you or anybody else name who was on that panel that day? Typically, these congressional hearings get no attention. But when he banned me and tried to stop me from testifying, I ended up getting a lot more national attention for my message.”

Then the formerly targeted Congressman laid it out even more plainly.

Scalise went on, “Look, it was people with guns who saved my life. Because the bad guys out there, they’re going to find a way — whether it’s knives or guns or bombs — they’re going to find a way to do what they do, with or without new rules that block people that are law-abiding citizens.”

Ignorance may be bliss for the democrats, but a half-truth is still a lie…even if it occurs before Congress.

New Video Posted By President Trump Proves He’s Denounced White Supremacy Over And Over Again

Published

on

President Trump released a video Tuesday that completely annihilates the left-wing narrative promoted in the mainstream media that he is a racist who supports and promotes white supremacy. Many folks in the MSM have made the accusation that the president has not condemned white supremacy, but this video showcases all of the times he’s done just that. Here’s more on the video from the Daily Wire: “The Trump campaign rolled out a nearly 5-minute-long video of the president, featuring video clips from as recently as this month, to his 2016 presidential campaign, and dating all the way back to an interview Trump gave to Matt Lauer in the early 2000s, where he denounced White supremacy and ‘disavowed’ White supremacist groups,” Fox News reported. “The video comes after Biden and Harris have criticized Trump, casting him as a racist and claiming he has not denounced White supremacy, and also comes as part of the Trump campaign’s final pitch to win over Black voters ahead of Election Day.” The video actually details 38 examples of when Trump denounced white supremacy. Here’s just a few of the ones covered in the clip.   From recent NBC News townhall: “I denounce white supremacy, okay?” From recent NBC News townhall: “Are you listening? I denounce white supremacy. What’s your next question?” From recent NBC News townhall: “I denounce white supremacy.” From recent NBC News townhall: “You start off with white supremacy, I denounce it.” https://youtu.be/Bd0cMmBvqWc Folks, the mainstream media is never going to ditch their anti-Trump racist narrative, regardless of how false it actually is. They believe this is one of their strongest strategies against the president and have worked hard, investing much time and energy, into covering this narrative and brainwashing their viewing audience with it. But it’s not true. Clearly, the president is…

Tony Bobulinski Makes Explosive Claims On Tucker Carlson’s Show, Media Skips Story

Published

on

Critics are having a hard time wrapping their minds around the fact that the mainstream media is choosing to ignore the Tucker Carlson interview with Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, who stated that the Biden family casually shrugged off any worries that Joe Biden’s ties to all of his son’s business deals might have a negative impact on future presidential campaigns. This, of course, raises questions as to whether or not the MSM is worthy of public trust. Given the kind of anti-Trump coverage we’ve seen over the last few years, and the total destruction of journalistic integrity and ethics, the answer to that question should easily be “no.” via Fox News: Bobulinski’s comments to Carlson were completely ignored by CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and Washington Post as of 8 a.m. EST on Wednesday, exactly 12 hours after the start of the damning interview. “It is pretty much a 100 percent blackout of the Bobulinski story in the traditional media. Of course, there are lots of stories that need to be covered in the busy 2020 news agenda, but the total omission of Bobulinski’s accusations is curious, to say the least,” DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News. “Even if this story is not front and center on the news agenda, it does need to be approached somewhere along the way. Odds are that most mainstream media outlets are devoting very few reporting resources, if any, to the Bobulinski story,” McCall added. “It would seem those outlets could at least be investigating the accusations to try to prove them invalid.” “What little coverage has surfaced has basically just been running without challenge the boilerplate denials and indignation from the Biden camp. The manner in which this story has been covered…
