CNN Doesn’t Think Brass Knuckles Are a Legitimate Form of Self Defense

Published

CNN downplays Texas’s legalization of brass knuckles.

In a piece, condescendingly titled “It’s now legal to carry brass knuckles in Texas. Because, ‘self-defense”, the author highlighted Texas’ recent passage of brass knuckles legalization.

Liberty Conservative News reported on Texas Governor Greg Abbot signing HB 446 into law on Saturday, May 25, 2019, after receiving a unanimous vote in both chambers of the state legislature.

The bill removes “knuckles” from a category of weapons prohibited in a previous law that made it illegal to possess, manufacture, transport or sell a number of weapons that went form improvised explosive devices to homemade guns.

Ironically, State Representative Joe Moody, a politician who has repeatedly introduced anti-gun legislation like “red flag” gun confiscation laws, sponsored HB 446.

He stated that this bill was designed for people who wanted to exercise self-defense. Moody cited the case of a woman who wanted to use a keychain for self-defense but was ultimately jailed because it under the category of prohibited “knuckles”:

A young woman who has a keychain for self-defense, certainly fits the statute of knuckles. And she was arrested for that.

Moody concluded that this arrest was “certainly antithetical to our rights to self-defense.”

Political commentator Eric Spencer poked fun of CNN’s article title, pointing out how the modern-day Left increasingly views self-defense with disdain.

The passage of this law was one of the few bright spots during an otherwise disappointing 2019 legislative session.

House Speaker Dennis Bonnen killed pro-gun Constitutional Carry legislation through a smear attack against a gun rights activist. The House Speaker even claimed that Constitutional Carry would allow felons to carry firearms, despite the fact that the law does nothing to Texas state law which already prohibits felons from carrying.

Nevertheless, self-defense advocates will take whatever they can get. The 2021 legislative session will be the next opportunity for them to make things right.

U.S. Intelligence Reports that China Hid the Extent of the Wuhan Virus Outbreak

Published

on

According to a Bloomberg report, China has not been forthcoming about the extent of the Wuhan Virus in its country.

It has apparently, under-reported “both total cases and deaths it’s suffered from the disease, the U.S. intelligence community concluded in a classified report to the White House, according to three U.S. officials.”

The officials requested to stay anonymous because the report is confidential and declined to give further details about its contents. The main takeaway though is “that China’s public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete. Two of the officials said the report concludes that China’s numbers are fake.”

The White House received this report last week, according to one of the aforementioned officials.

The pandemic originated in China’s Hubei province in late 2019, but the country has officially reported only about 82,000 cases and 3,300 deaths, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University. America, on the other hand, has 189,000 cases and more than 4,000 deaths which is allegedly the largest publicly and reported outbreak in the world.

“The reality is that we could have been better off if China had been more forthcoming,” Vice President Mike Pence said on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 on CNN. “What appears evident now is that long before the world learned in December that China was dealing with this, and maybe as much as a month earlier than that, that the outbreak was real in China.”

China imposed one of the strictest lockdowns of all nations afflicted by this pandemic. However, the Chinese government has not been transparent about its recording strategies and is constantly changing its methods for recording cases.

Republicans have been skeptical of the numbers coming out of Beijing.

“The claim that the United States has more coronavirus deaths than China is false,” declared Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse. “Without commenting on any classified information, this much is painfully obvious: The Chinese Communist Party has lied, is lying, and will continue to lie about coronavirus to protect the regime.”

U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has called on China to be transparent about their outbreaks.

“This data set matters,” he said during a news conference in Washington on March 31, 2020. The development of medical treatments and public-health measures to combat the virus “so that we can save lives depends on the ability to have confidence and information about what has actually transpired,” he asserted.

The Wuhan Virus pandemic illustrates the pitfalls of globalism and global integration at all costs.

When authoritarian regimes like China are treated like equals on the international stage in terms of trade and migration, Western countries could be susceptible to demographic displacement, national security breaches, viral outbreaks, and corporate espionage.

This sage may be the wake-up call the West needs in trying to socially distance itself from China.
