Former Congressman and current Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke continues to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is one of the worst candidates in the current pool of left-wingers vying to take on Trump in 2020.

And given he’s mixing it up with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, and Cory Booker, that’s really saying something.

O’Rourke has thrown his support behind a radical left-wing anti-gun bill that was crafted by Parkland students.

Yes, that’s right, y’all. Kids who can’t even sit at the bar and have a beer are crafting national policy.

“Following the lead of the students marching for their lives, and for all of ours, we will end this epidemic,” O’Rourke said on Wednesday. “I support their Peace Plan For A Safer America — and I call on everyone else in this race to do the same.”

O’Rourke’s endorsement came only hours after The Washington Post unveiled the students’ sweeping policy measures. The so-called ‘Peace Plan’ demands a ban on “assault weapons” and any magazine above the standard capacity, red flag laws, universal background checks, increasing the purchase age to 21, and forbidding more than one firearm purchase per month.

It also implements federally mandated safe storage requirements and a government-run gun confiscation program, where civilians will be required to hand over any “assault weapons.” It also creates programs “to encourage voluntary civilian reduction of handguns and other firearms.”

The Peace Plan further demands a national gun registry, as well as a licensing system for both guns and ammunition, which imposes annual fees. In order to obtain a license, the multi-step process would include “background checks, in-person interviews, personal references, rigorous gun safety training, and a waiting period of 10 days for each gun purchase.” The license would expire after one year.

It’s totally understandable that kids from Parkland who survived this horrific shooting would want their voices heard in this very important conversation about guns.

However, it’s clear that O’Rourke is using them as political pawns to help bolster his non-existent poll numbers and hopefully get him taken more seriously as a candidate. The man is doing so bad that a newspaper who actually supported him has asked him to drop out.

Let that sink in for a minute.

We can all agree something is very wrong with the current condition of our nation, but the truth of the matter is, gun control doesn’t work. It only punishes law-abiding citizens and strips them of their God-given right to defend themselves from criminals and tyrants.

This is unacceptable. Let’s hope these kids wake up and realize they’re just being used by Democrats to further their own agenda.

New Reports Say Number Of NY Nursing Home Deaths Much Higher Than Reported

Published

on

A brand new report has hit the news cycle, and it’s not at all good news for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The report alleges that the number of folks who died at nursing homes of the coronavirus, which were mostly due to horrific policy decisions by Cuomo himself, are much higher than first reported. Cuomo has taken a lot of heat for his mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic and for decisions that led to the deaths of thousands of at-risk individuals in nursing home facilities. The left has been attempting to spin the situation and make Cuomo out to be some sort of hero, but nobody is buying that garbage. Check out the details from The Daily Wire: “New York’s coronavirus death toll in nursing homes, already among the highest in the nation, could actually be a significant undercount,” the Associated Press reported. “Unlike every other state with major outbreaks, New York only counts residents who died on nursing home property and not those who were transported to hospitals and died there.” According to the AP, on paper, the nursing home only reported a total of four deaths from the coronavirus out of its nearly 150-bed facility. However, the true number is 21 dead, most of whom were transported out of the facility and to hospitals before they died. “That statistic that could add thousands to the state’s official care home death toll of just over 6,600,” the AP continued. “But so far the administration of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has refused to divulge the number, leading to speculation the state is manipulating the figures to make it appear it is doing a better than other states and to make a tragic situation less dire.” Keep in mind that New York City became a hot bed for COVID-19 infections,…

Coronavirus Relief Negotiations Hit Yet Another Snag, This Time The Obstacle Is State Aid

Published

on

Trump administration officials and leaders within the Democratic Party continue to remain at a stalemate when it comes to negotiating another coronavirus relief package, as money for state and local governments appears as yet another snag in the negotiations. Of course, the left has also been trying to politicize this relief package and use it to get some wish list items of their passed into law, which is also not helping things. As of now, both sides in the debate over the relief package are bickering about whether or not states should receive more funding in the next round of emergency funding, and if so, how much is appropriate. Here’s more on this from Fox News: Negotiators are trying to close the divide between the Senate Republicans’ $1 trillion HEALS Act, which includes no new funding for states, and the House’s $3.4 trillion HEROES Act, which allocates about $1 trillion in new funding for state and local governments. The stalemate puts at risk potentially trillions of dollars in aid for families, businesses and the U.S. economy, including a fresh round of $1,200 stimulus checks, extra unemployment aid for millions of out-of-work Americans, $100 billion to help reopen schools and relief for cash-strapped state and local governments. There were no signs of a détente on Monday, with each party blaming the other for the stalled-out discussions. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, one of the lead negotiators in the relief package, referred to the Democrats’ request for $1 trillion for state aid “an absurd number,” stating there’s “plenty” of cash available already for the governments. “We’re not going to give a trillion dollars for state and local,” he said in an interview with CNBC. “That’s just not a reasonable approach.” President Trump has also made his feelings clear on this number, and as…
