Actions Continue To Have Consequences

It’s hard to say if there is an organized boycott of Target stores or if women are just staying away because they don’t feel safe using their public restrooms.

Target announced back in April of this year that they would allow men in women’s restrooms. There was a negative backlash but Target didn’t back down. People started shopping elsewhere. They still haven’t changed their policy. Instead the geniuses on the Target board have decided to spend $20 million to convert their bathrooms to single-stall, single occupant.

“The Target boycott is costing more than anyone expected”

target-shopping-2

The company revealed its traffic declines last week when it reported second-quarter earnings.

Target’s same-store transactions, which is how traffic is measured, fell 2.2% in the second quarter. Overall, sales fell 7.2% to $16.2 billion.

“In the second quarter, our No. 1 challenge was traffic, which affected sales in all of our merchandise categories,” Target CEO Brian Cornell said last week on a call with analysts.”

This Is Really A Pretty Good Idea

The NSSF, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, has decided to take a new tack. They have started championing suicide prevention. It will not affect gun owners much but it will do two things.

nspf1601

The effort will help people who are on the fence about gun control to understand a simple fact that has been kept from them:

With suicide accounting for nearly two-thirds of all firearm fatalities annually, the topic of suicide prevention deserves our attention. In recent years NSSF has worked with the Veterans Administration, the State of Utah, and mental health agencies to help educate gun owners and the public on how to keep firearms safely out of reach of those who, during a period of despair, decide to do themselves harm.”

Two-thirds of all gun related deaths are suicides. That is a huge fact and it points out that the anti-gun people have been less than honest with their data. Without fail, if they report gun-related death rates truthfully, they include suicides in order to make the number three times bigger. They don’t tell the people they are propagandizing to, either.

Second, they are portraying the NSSF and shooters in general as caring individuals. That kind of imagery works pretty well with independents.

Besides those things they use an image that portrays the shooting sports as fun, safe, and that training is a good thing.

DOJ Is Living Rent-Free In Mind Of Sheriff Joe

The Department of Justice under Barack Obama has hassled Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio ever since Obama took office. He is politically incorrect and unrepentant. The people in the Valley of the Sun must like the job he’s doing because he keeps getting reelected.

Now the DOJ has announced that they are launching a new investigation. The previous ones have amounted to nothing, it seems.

Funny. None of the local legal beagles want to go after him so they turned it over to the feds. This sounds a lot like how progressives try to subvert the will of the people.

“JUSTICE DEPARTMENT WILL PROBE METRO PHOENIX SHERIFF ARPAIO”

joe-arpaio

PHOENIX (AP) — The investigation and possible prosecution of metropolitan Phoenix Sheriff Joe Arpaio will be handled by the U.S. Justice Department after federal prosecutors in Arizona asked to be removed because of unspecified conflicts of interest, according to a court filing made public.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for Arizona said in its brief filing Friday in U.S. District Court in Phoenix that the case has been assigned to the Justice Department’s criminal division, public integrity section.”

Irony: Rapper Is Shot By Black Gang While Filming Video For Black Lives Matter

Chicago, where else?

Democrats should be proud. They have controlled Chicago since before the fire.

Video of the drive-by shooting:

King Yella, 26, whose real name is Cemone Lewis, said in videos posted to social media that he was shooting a “Black Lives Matter video” when a hail of bullets left him with a gunshot wound in his arm and a graze wound in his side.

[…]

Police said the shooting, carried out from a passing car, appeared to be gang-related.

After the shooting, a Twitter account representing the Black Disciples gang posted a video of the shooting and claimed responsibility.”

“All Power Corrupts. Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely”

This adage has been around for a very long time. It has a strong basis in truth. It is a warning to people to make sure that the leaders you elect do not have too much control over those they are leading. It explains what has been happening in the United States since we elected to the Presidency people who promise things a President is not empowered to do.

The United States was designed so that no leader could become that powerful. With three separate but equal branches of government there was supposed to be checks to prevent a dictator. But those checks have become impotent. Now it seems that a majority of Americans want a strong man in the Oval office. They are willing to follow anyone who promises to stop global warming or illegal immigration.

History has shown us that giving leaders that kind of power always leads to excesses. Here is the most recent example:

“Mugabe Orders Arrest Of “Rats We Call Athletes” After Zimbabwe Wins No Olympic Medals”

Robert Mugabe

Robert Mugabe

As PMNews Nigeria reports, Mr. Mugabe who is incensed with the team’s performance told the Police Chief to arrest all the team members and detain them.

“We have wasted the country’s money on these rats we call athletes. If you are not ready to sacrifice and win even copper or brass medals (referring the 4th and 5th positions) as our neighbors Botswana did, then why do you go to waste our money” he said.”

What do you suppose he will do with the losing athletes after he has arrested them? Again, referring to his history I would not like to be one of them.

Mom Leaves Her Kids Home While She Goes To The Store, Gets Arrested

When Susan Terillion decided to go to the market she had two choices, either take her two kids, ages 8 and 9 along or leave them at her Maryland home. She chose to leave them. A busybody found out the kids had been alone for 45 minutes and called the cops. They hauled her in. Who watched them while she was in the slammer?

“Maryland Mom Arrested for Leaving Her 8- and 9-Year-Olds Alone to Go Get Food”

I know that look. It means, “What kind of stupid crap is this?”

A stranger discovered her children were home alone when the family dogs ran in front of his car and he got out to help the kids secure the pets. The witness called the police to report the incident, stating that the kids had been left alone for 45 minutes. Neither the children or dogs were injured, and the mother was later released on $500 bail.”

Germans Get Into Prepping

Even if you don’t live in Germany this is a darned good idea. But only there does the government mandate it.

“Germans Told to Stockpile Food and Water in Case of Attack or Catastrophe”

Angela-Merkel

As Germany’s Angela Merkel faces increasing pressure regarding her nation’s security, the German government has issued a civil defense report addressing the role the German people are to play.

Reuters reports:

For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the German government plans to tell citizens to stockpile food and water in case of an attack or catastrophe, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper reported on Sunday.

Germany is currently on high alert after two Islamist attacks and a shooting rampage by a mentally unstable teenager last month. Berlin announced measures earlier this month to spend considerably more on its police and security forces and to create a special unit to counter cyber crime and terrorism.

“The population will be obliged to hold an individual supply of food for ten days,” the newspaper quoted the government’s “Concept for Civil Defence” – which has been prepared by the Interior Ministry – as saying.”

The Real Revo May Come To An End

The internet has worked because there is little or no censorship. Opposing views as well as friendly ones are available here. That’s because it is controlled by the freest country in the world. If control is turned over to a multi-national group like this it will become less free, more complex, and more expensive. Access will require a payment of some kind in order to pay for the managers.

“America to hand off Internet in under two months”

I’m Surprised Maduro Waited This Long

This is so typical of socialists. They are wrong on every count and they are wrong on guns. Disarming the law-abiding public, in effect making the entire city of Caracas a gun-free zone will not make citizens safer. It will make the gangs stronger. As the article says, they are getting the guns and ammunition from corrupt police. That will not stop.

Corrupt cops can be gang members, too, especially now that victims can’t defend themselves.

“Venezuela crushes 2,000 guns in public, plans registry of bullets”

Venezuela Guns 2_0

(Reuters) – Venezuelan police crushed and chopped up nearly 2,000 shotguns and pistols in a Caracas city square on Wednesday, as the new interior minister relaunched a long-stalled gun control campaign in one of the world’s most crime-ridden countries.

Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said the event marked the renewal of efforts to disarm Venezuelans, through a combination of seizures and a voluntary program to swap guns for electrical goods.

Venezuela has the world’s second highest murder rate and the street gangs that plague its poor neighborhoods have become increasingly heavily armed in recent years, at a time when a deep recession has reduced resources available to police.

Gangs often get weapons from the police, either by stealing them or buying them from corrupt officers, experts say.”

Venezuela has the second-highest murder rate but Caracas has the worst.

As Surely As Night Follows Day – Here Come The Calls For Socialized Medicine

The entire Obamacare bill was designed to do this. It required health insurers to cover pre-existing medical conditions, limited what they could get for premiums, allowed people to sign up for insurance after they were sick, and thus ensured that insurance companies would stop offering healthcare coverage. When that happened there would be no option but single-payer socialized medicine. It was brilliant and the insurance companies fell for it.

Now that the small man has called for single payer expect Hillary Clinton to do so as well.

“Aetna Shows Why We Need a Single Payer”

Bill Clinton, Robert Reich

Bill Clinton, Robert Reich

The best argument for a single-payer health plan is the recent decision by giant health insurer Aetna to bail out next year from 11 of the 15 states where it sells Obamacare plans.

Aetna’s decision follows similar moves by UnitedHealth Group, the nation’s largest insurer, and Humana, one of the other giants.

All claim they’re not making enough money because too many people with serious health problems are using the Obamacare exchanges, and not enough healthy people are signing up.

The problem isn’t Obamacare per se. It’s in the structure of private markets for health insurance – which creates powerful incentives to avoid sick people and attract healthy ones. Obamacare is just making the structural problem more obvious.”

A couple weeks ago we noted that we support paying slavery reparations to blacks today but they should be paid by Democrats because they were the slave owners.

The Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy recently announced the formation of the Black-Led Movement Fund [BLMF], a six-year pooled donor campaign aimed at raising $100 million for the Movement for Black Lives coalition.”

I Wonder What Law They Broke

“Men Armed With Rifles, Dressed In Tactical Gear Arrested After Pursuit”

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Police Tuesday arrested two men who were allegedly seen dressed in full tactical gear threatening to ambush officers.”

If you watch the video from CBS you will see that the men were not threatening the officers. The ‘Ambush’ claim makes no sense, especially since the police left them alone. They followed them to their home and arrested them there.

There was video footage of two individuals … ,” Green said. “So, investigatively, since then we’ve been moving forward to try and determine if
these are legal assault weapons, and what the intentions of the individuals were.”

No injuries were reported.”

Americans Know This. Politicians And News Media Will Be Surprised.

Like the incarceration rate of blacks declining as posted below, this information argues against the preconceived notions of politicians and the press. Every time there is a shooting they try to find a link to law abiding Americans like CCW holders. In every case they are disappointed when the shooter turns out to be a member of one of their protected classes.

You’d think they would learn but they don’t. They have an agenda, you see.

“Report Finds These Gun Owners Are Least Likely Criminals”

handgun

Concealed-carry permit holders are nearly the most law-abiding demographic of Americans, a new report by the Crime Prevention Research Center says—comparing the permit holders foremost with police.

“Indeed, it is impossible to think of any other group in the U.S. that is anywhere near as law-abiding,” says the report, titled “Concealed Carry Permit Holders Across the United States 2016.”

[…]

“We find that permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at less than a sixth the rate for police officers,” the report says. “Among police, firearms violations occur at a rate of 16.5 per 100,000 officers. Among permit holders in Florida and Texas, the rate is only 2.4 per 100,000.10. That is just one-seventh of the rate for police officers.”

Hard To Imagine Protesting This

“Black incarceration hasn’t been this low in a generation”

Empty Prison Cell

Empty Prison Cell

A 23 percent decline in the black male imprisonment rate and a 49 percent decline in the black female imprisonment rate would seem to warrant some serious attention. But if you point out to the average person or even a seasoned criminologist that the United States is at a more than 20-year low in the black incarceration rate, you are likely to be met with stunned silence. Why?”

incarcerated black men

The big question is, given these data, why do Black Lives Matter, President Obama, and most black leaders contend that black men are being imprisoned at a greater rate than ever before? As the Washington Post writer shows us that is a lie. The lie is being used to enrage people and turn them to violence.

The vacationing President Barack Obama has issued no statement on the riot in Milwaukee Saturday night over the fatal police shooting of an armed Black criminal–not even a call for peace while the shooting is investigated.

The rioting left four officers wounded and caused Gov. Scott Walker to activate the National Guard in case of further riotimg.

Instead, Obama went golfing Sunday on Martha’s Vineyard where he is taking his annual two-week summer vacation.”

“The Inevitable Failure Of The US Grid”

When you look at the layout of the grid above, it’s easy to see that a single grid going offline would disrupt a huge segment of North America.

When you look at the layout of the grid above, it’s easy to see that a single grid going offline would disrupt a huge segment of North America.

“And if you’re wondering why Texas gets a grid of its own, according to the Texas Tribune they have their own grid “to avoid dealing with the feds.” Now that’s true survivalist savvy—in theory.”

What we are certain of, is that severe weather will continue to stress and threaten our power grid. And unless something changes, ultimately, it will fail. So when we talk about reliability, we’re talking about “when” and “for how long” scenarios, not “what if”.

The how-long factor plays a huge role into how bad is “bad”; not because of the events that one knows will follow, which includes mass food spoilage, deaths due to overheating in the hot summer months, deaths due to freezing in the cold regions, and the halting of everything we take for granted these days—airlines, internet and most other forms of communication.

All that sounds pretty bleak, but when you throw into the mix the mania and hysteria that would ensue shortly after such catastrophic events, it will be so much worse.”

Ah, The Old ‘Clinton Defense’

And I don’t mean, “Whatever the definition of ‘Is’ is.

This is simple. By letting Hillary Clinton off the Department of Justice has undermined the American legal system – including that of the US military. Whether this was an intended result is unclear but the result is clear. It is insidious. Rules and laws that have existed for centuries are being upended and flopped on their back. The only thing they can be replaced with is rule by decree. The results of that depend on the connections of the accused and the whim of the monarch.

Petty Officer First Class Kristian Saucier, 29, faces sentencing on a charge of retaining national defense information without authorization. | Defense filing via U.S. District Court of Connecticut

A Navy sailor facing the possibility of years in prison for taking a handful of classified photos inside a nuclear submarine is making a bid for leniency by citing the decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton over classified information authorities say was found in her private email account.

Petty Officer First Class Kristian Saucier, 29, is set to be sentenced Friday on a single felony charge of retaining national defense information without permission. In May, Saucier pleaded guilty in federal court in Bridgeport, Conn., admitting that while working on the U.S.S. Alexandria in 2009 he took and kept six photos showing parts of the sub’s propulsion system he knew to be classified.

[…]

“In our case, Mr. Saucier possessed six (6) photographs classified as ‘confidential/restricted,’ far less than Clinton’s 110 emails,” Hogan wrote. “It will be unjust and unfair for Mr. Saucier to receive any sentence other than probation for a crime those more powerful than him will likely avoid.”
