Freshman Congresswoman Haley Stevens (D-MI) held a contentious town hall at a gun club in Commerce Township, MI on Tuesday where she called for widespread gun control and the end of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
“This is why the NRA has got to go! The NRA has go to go!” Stevens exclaimed, as the divided crowd roared in response.
The town hall took place in the indoor gun range of the Multi Lakes Conservation Association, a group that regularly hosts the NRA and other pro-gun events. Republican organizers in the area explain that the venue was duped into holding the event by deceptive Democrats who misrepresented their real intentions.
“I think they just snuck it in here. I can tell you that the members of this gun club aren’t happy about it,” explained 11th Congressional District Republican Party Chairwoman Meshawn Maddock to FOX 2 News.
“Somehow, Fems for Dems booked this event using a different name. The sweet woman that I talked to said that it said “Fems for Life” in her calendar,” she explained.
While Stevens may have wanted a photo op in a gun club to use against the NRA and defenders of the 2nd Amendment, many patriotic Republicans crashed the event, and it did not go according to plan. The event was abruptly halted over an hour before it was scheduled to end, and Stevens ducked out shortly afterward instead of facing one-on-one questions from her constituents.
“The 11th Congressional District isn’t progressive,” Maddock said. “It’s Republican. And Republicans support the Second Amendment and we like our legally owned guns. You’ve got a lot of nerve holding an anti-gun rally in the heart of gun-country. So we will rally voters to show you what voters think about two things. First, your lack of support for our Second Amendment. Then your poor decision to select this location for your town hall.”
Stevens, although not officially a member of the far-left “Squad,” certainly echoes their values when it comes to the 2nd Amendment. She is one of the Congress’ most fervent advocates against gun rights.
“I have made gun violence prevention one of my top priorities since the day I was sworn in to Congress,” she said in a statement on Tuesday.
“The U.S. House of Representatives has taken major steps forward to protect our communities from gun violence, passing the first major gun safety legislation in a generation to expand background checks to all firearm sales. Now, we are calling on Senate Majority Leader McConnell to allow a vote on this pragmatic, bipartisan legislation so we can prevent dangerous weapons from falling into the wrong hands,” she added.
The 11th Congressional District of Michigan is expected to be a competitive race during the next election, as it was a district won by President Trump in 2016 that was flipped to the Democrats in the 2018 mid-term elections when Trump was off the ballot. Asian-American Trump supporter Whittney Williams is the only declared Republican challenger against Stevens heading into 2020.
Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan
Another victory for the war party.
Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.
The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.
The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.
Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.
“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.
“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.
“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”
The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.
“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.
“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.
The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
