Virginia Democrats Want to Outlaw Ammunition in Backdoor Gun Ban

Virginia Democrats are still looking for shady ways to put an end to the Second Amendment without actually repealing the right to bear arms.

Virginia Democrats are still looking for shady ways to put an end to the Second Amendment without actually repealing the right to bear arms, and this time they want to ban ammunition so gun owners can’t use their firearms at all.

By banning ammunition, they effectively ban firearms because without ammunition, a firearm is a useless device, for sure. This is essentially a gun ban without actually banning any guns.

It is all just part of the Virginia Democrat Party’s attempt to eliminate the Second Amendment by hook or by crook.

Democrats want a new law that imposes severe criminal penalties on anyone caught with ammunition on “the property of any public, private or religious elementary, middle or high school, including buildings and grounds,” the NRA-ILA reports.

Even one round of ammunition found on a person or in the vehicle of a Virginia gun owner is enough to trigger these new penalties.

As filed, HB318 would make it a crime to knowingly possess ammunition at such locations. A violation of the ammunition ban would be a Class 1 Misdemeanor punishable by a $2,500 fine and up to a year imprisonment.

The bill would also impose the penalty if said single bullet is found even if the citizen has no gun on him or in his car with which to use that bullet. The mere possession of a single bullet is enough to trigger jail time.

“The irrational nature of HB318 further exposes the truth that the Bloomberg-bought General Assembly’s gun control agenda is not about public safety,” the NRA-IlA warned. “Rather, bills like HB318 are about attacking gun owners and discouraging the exercise of Second Amendment rights by placing senseless restrictions on harmless conduct. This legislation is aimed at harassing law-abiding gun owners, not at keeping people safe.”

A favorite son of Virginia had long ago noted that this sort of backdoor gun ban is illicit and un-American.

Our third president and famed Virginia, Thomas Jefferson, pointed out that banning the tools that aide in observing a right is exactly the same thing as banning the right.

“It is a principle that the right to a thing gives a right to the means without which it could not be used, that is to say, that the means follow their end,” Jefferson wrote in 1792 in his “Report on Navigation of the Mississippi.”

Banning ammunition is exactly the same thing as banning guns and, therefore, no different than banning the Second Amendment by fiat.

Is Schiff Laying Groundwork For Rejecting Election Results?

Published

on

Democratic House Manager Adam Schiff argued that if President Trump is allowed to run for president this year, “we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won.”

When Trump is re-elected, we will have to deal with all this madness again increased by 10 fold. The Dems are losing their power over the government, they are backed into a corner. And since they can not win fairly, they will do everything they must in order to steal it. We can only protect our nation by voting out every single Democra up for election.

Traitor Mitt Romney Tries to Backtrack from Supporting Democrat Impeachment Gambit

After his repeated anti-Trump statements, Utah “Republican” Senator Mitt Romney tried to back away from his outright support for impeachment on Tuesday.

Published

After his repeated anti-Trump statements, Utah “Republican” Senator Mitt Romney tried to back away from his outright support for impeachment on Tuesday.

Democrats were likely expecting Romney to come out swinging against Trump as the U.S. Senate begins its part of the impeachment drama this week. Instead, Romney took a few steps backward from his previous anti-Trump support for impeachment.

Romney’s reaction to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s outline for the Senate’s proceedings struck a slightly different tone than his previous comments.

As Daily Wire reported:

While Democrats are taking to various media platforms to express outrage over the Republicans’ plans for handling the trial, accusing McConnell of attempting to “cover up” the president’s alleged misconduct by fast-tracking the proceedings, Romney pointed out in a statement issued ahead of the debate Tuesday that the rules set forth by his colleagues “align closely” with those established for the impeachment trial of then-President Bill Clinton, rules which were unanimously approved by the Senate.

Meanwhile, Romney’s Democrat pals railed over McConnell’s plans. Sen. Schumer, for instance, absurdly exclaimed: “We are staring down an erosion of the sacred democratic principles for which our founders fought a bloody war of independence.”

Romney, though, did not exactly support the Democrat line. Though agreeing with the left that the allegations against Trump are “extremely serious,” Romney added that he thinks the Senate should “put political biases aside” and hear the case in “good faith.”

“The allegations outlined in the articles of impeachment passed by the House are extremely serious — did the President abuse his office for personal political gain, and did he obstruct Congress’ investigation by blocking subpoenas?” Romney said in the statement. “These allegations demand that the Senate put political biases aside, and make good faith efforts to listen to arguments from both sides and thoroughly review facts and evidence. I have made clear to my colleagues and the public that the Senate should have the opportunity to decide on witnesses following the opening arguments, as occurred in the Clinton trial. The organizing resolution released tonight includes this step, and overall, it aligns closely with the rules package approved 100-0 during the Clinton trial. If attempts are made to vote on witnesses prior to opening arguments, I would oppose those efforts.”

Romney later pushed out a press release slamming Democrats:

As we approach the impeachment trial of the President, I feel a deep sense of responsibility to the Constitution, to the people of Utah and to the nation. I want to share my thoughts directly with Utahns — the people I was elected to serve in the Senate — about how I plan to approach this process.

Last week, I and all senators swore an oath to ‘do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws: so help me God’ in determining whether the president has committed impeachable offenses that merit his removal from office. Deciding whether or not a sitting president should be removed from office is perhaps the most solemn matter that can ever come before the United States Senate. I enter this task with an open mind and a recognition of my solemn responsibility to fulfill my oath.

The allegations outlined in the articles of impeachment passed by the House are extremely serious — did the President abuse his office for personal political gain, and did he obstruct Congress’ investigation by blocking subpoenas? These allegations demand that the Senate put political biases aside, and make good faith efforts to listen to arguments from both sides and thoroughly review facts and evidence. I have made clear to my colleagues and the public that the Senate should have the opportunity to decide on witnesses following the opening arguments, as occurred in the Clinton trial. The organizing resolution released tonight includes this step, and overall, it aligns closely with the rules package approved 100-0 during the Clinton trial. If attempts are made to vote on witnesses prior to opening arguments, I would oppose those efforts.

I will conclude by noting that this is not a situation anyone would wish upon our country. It is difficult, divisive, and further inflames partisan entrenchment. There is inevitable political pressure from all sides. I have spent — and will continue to spend — many hours in careful deliberation about what this process and its potential outcomes could mean for our country. The best we in the Senate can do is strive to meet the obligations outlined by our founding fathers — to honor our constitutional duty and fulfill our oath to do impartial justice. That is the commitment I make solemnly and in good faith to the people of Utah and our nation.

So, why has Romney suddenly started pulling back a bit from his extreme hate for Trump?

His poll numbers are tanking, of course.

According to KSL.com:

There was an 8% drop in his approval rating among Republicans in the most recent Mitt Romney polls. It went from 65% in the third quarter to 57% in the last quarter.

But support among Democrats went up from 42 to 46% over the same time for the Utah Republican.

And so… suddenly Romney is looking a bit more like a Republican to regain support.

Biden: “We Should Be Helping China”

Published

2020 democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said that “China’s not our problem” when discussing foreign relations during a town hall in Muscatine, Iowa on 10/23/19.

“We talk about China as our competitor. We should be helping and benefiting ourselves by doing that. But the idea that China is going to eat our lunch — I remember the debates in the late ’90s, remember, Japan was going to own us? Give me a break.”

He’s clueless!

Biden has no idea what he’s talking about when it comes to China and this proves it.

Illinois State Board Of Elections Admits Non-U.S. Citizens May Have Voted Illegally In 2018

Published

on

The Illinois State Board of Elections admits non-U.S. citizens may have voted illegally in 2018. Non-citizens were accidentally automatically registered to vote.

Democratic leader blames ‘programming error.’

Agency spokesman Matt Dietrich told WCIA-TV that 574 noncitizens were inadvertently registered to vote prior to the election — and a number of them exercised that power. At least 19 actually voted.

State Board of Elections admits non-U.S. citizens may have voted illegally in 2018

“We do know that some of them voted,” he said.

WCIA:

The Illinois State Board of Elections acknowledged that out of 574 non-U.S. citizens who were inadvertently registered to vote in Illinois, an unknown number of them may have voted illegally in the 2018 election.

“We do know that some of them voted” in the 2018 election, spokesman Matt Dietrich said in a phone call on Monday afternoon, though his office was not immediately able to determine how many of them may have voted, or how many may have been legal citizens who simply filled out their state form incorrectly. Dietrich expects the elections agency will have more specific answers when state workers return to their desks after a government holiday.

Secretary of State Jesse White’s office admitted it was at fault for the “isolated” incident, and offered assurances that the “programming error” in the state’s new automatic voter registration process has since been repaired.

Illinois law allows immigrants who are not citizens to get a driver’s license or state identification. Both state and federal law prohibits non-citizens from participating in American elections. More

The left in America is counting on voter fraud to win the election in November 2020. That is why the Blue states are giving drivers licenses to illegal aliens.

The elections of states like California, New York, and  Illinois that knowingly register illegals to vote should be challenged in court.

Pelosi Slammed for Faking Use of Dozens of Pens During Impeachment Signing Ceremony

Speaker Pelosi was ridiculed, Wednesday, for faking the use of dozens of pens she claimed she used to sign her name.

Published

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was ridiculed, Wednesday, for faking the use of dozens of pens she claimed she used to sign her signature on the Democrat articles of impeachment.

The signing ceremony was covered live by cable news outlets, but almost immediately social media exploded with people slamming the optics of Pelosi smiling while divvying out the pens to her Democrat pals in rampant celebration only a month after referring to impeachment as “sad” and “somber.”

Even Trump-hating radio talker Tom Nichols (who pretends to be a “conservative”) slammed Pelosi for the pen trick.

“Pelosi has handled the optics of impeachment well, right up until that signing ceremony, which was awkward. Handing out pens should have been done in private. This was not some celebratory moment,” he tweeted.

GOP National Spokesperson Elizabeth Harrington also went after Pelosi:

You know what you hand out pens for? Accomplishments.

Like, say, signing a historic trade deal with China.

So it’s fitting that Democrats are handing out pens for their sole accomplishment: impeachment

Democrats have done NOTHING for the American people

Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.) also tweeted: “They claim it’s a somber, serious occasion they’re heartbroken over…and then they pass out impeachment-signing pens with special cases. Folks. You can’t make it up.”

Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.) wrote: “Just walked through aftermath of this ‘signing ceremony. Dems were giddy with excitement in Capitol hallway, asking, ‘Did you get your pen?’ The American people will hold House Dems accountable for making a mockery of their duty to the Constitution.”

Pelosi’s Dems Transmit Fraudulent ‘Articles’ to Senate for Part Two of Impeachment

The Democrat infested House of Representatives have finally transmitted its fraud-filled “articles of impeachment” to the U.S. Senate.

Published

on

The Democrat infested House of Representatives have finally transmitted its fraud-filled “articles of impeachment” to the U.S. Senate so that the upper chamber can fulfill their part of the impeachment process.

After a month of dithering, Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has finally finished her part of the job.

Per Fox News:

The resolution, which passed 228-193 largely along party lines, came nearly a month after lawmakers voted to impeach the president on two counts.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., officially signed the articles Wednesday afternoon during an “engrossment ceremony.” Clerk of the House Cheryl Johnson and House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving walked a note over to the Senate notifying the upper chamber of Congress that Pelosi had signed the articles of impeachment and appointed managers to the trial.

No Republicans voted for the resolution to transmit the articles, and one Democrat, Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., was the only Democrat to vote against.

But waiting a month the transmit these fake articles is proof that the whole thing has been a political game from the start, not a matter of law or danger to the nation.

After all, every single Democrat who spoke in favor of impeachment called the act “urgent.” It was “urgent” to impeach President Trump, they said.

And yet… it was so “urgent” that they waited for a month to get the articles to the Senate so that the Senate could do their part?

Clearly it was not really urgent at all if they could dither for a month while Pelosi played political games with the articles.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., slammed the Democrats, saying, “This is not a moment this body should be proud of. As Pelosi says, impeachment is a national civics lesson. Let’s use this blunder as a teachable moment.”

“We wouldn’t abuse our power just for the sheer sake of politics to say you’re impeached forever because I dislike you,” McCarthy added.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also slammed the Democrats.

“It looks like today’s the day. House Democrats may finally stand behind the rushed, unfair, and nakedly partisan impeachment that they themselves delayed for four weeks. The ‘prosecutors’ have finally overcome their cold feet.,” he tweeted.
