Former US President Barack Obama bashed American gun laws at a conference in Brazil.

During a speech at the VTEX Day digital conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil the former president expressed sorrow about the Sandy Hook massacre.

Obama stated, “The most difficult day that I’ve had, was the day where there was a shooting at a school. Uh, where, 20 small children were shot, as well as some teachers.”

Afterwards, he said that “I had to go and comfort the parents.”

The 44th president went on to say that anyone can buy any type of gun with virtually no regulation, and then asserted that machine guns can be bought over the internet.

Some of you may be aware our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense,” Obama declared. “Anybody can buy any weapon any time — without much if any regulation, they can buy it over the Internet, they can buy machine guns.

Obama lamented how he was unable to pass gun control while in office.

“For me, having to speak to parents who have lost a child, just two days, or a day, after it happened, uh, and not being able to assure them that, um, that would change, that we would fix this,” he said. “I couldn’t bring the children back, but I couldn’t even, uh, promise them that we would change the laws so that this wouldn’t happen to somebody else’s children.”

Brazil is one of the most violent countries in the Western hemisphere and has very stringent gun control laws.

Although America has much laxer gun laws than Brazil, acquiring guns in America is no cakewalk. One must go through a background check, and depending on the state an individual lives in, you could potentially have to acquire a license and be fingerprinted to exercise an activity that is supposedly a right.

Midterms 2022

On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.

According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate. 

“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.

The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”

In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that  “This is a tough time to be in public service.”

Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back. 

2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state. 

America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
