Due to Republican Concerns, President Trump Reverses ATF Nomination

Published

on

On May 19, 2020, President Donald Trump abruptly reversed his choice to nominate Chuck Canterbury as the head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives.

In 2019, the former president of the Fraternal Order of Police was nominated by Trump, but the appointment has not progressed due to conservative concerns over his Second Amendment views. The Senate Judiciary Committee halted his nomination in 2019 after those complaints began to surface. Trump nominated Canterbury again in February.

According to an administration official, Canterbury would have not been able to make it out of the Judiciary Committee, thus prompting the withdrawal.

Canterbury’s withdrawal is part of an ongoing trend working against ATF nominees during the last few years. Since the ATF’s director position became a Senate-confirmed affair, there has been a growing number of acting directors. Todd Jones was confirmed as ATF director in 2013 after a spirited effort to get him confirmed. So far, he has been the only person to be confirmed to the position.

Currently, Regina Lombardo is the bureau’s acting director.

Dudley Brown, the President of the National Association for Gun Rights, chimed in on the situation:

The National Association for Gun Rights was the first gun rights organization to sound the alarm on Chuck Canterbury’s abysmal record on the Second Amendment, and in the end it was his past support for gun control that tanked his nomination.

It was NAGR members who deserve the credit for defeating Canterbury.

We’re glad the committee listened to our 4.5 million members and supporters by grilling Canterbury for his past support of the “assault weapons” ban. We encourage the White House and Congress to take the next step and dismantle this failed agency once and for all.

Man Who Brutally Assaulted Michigan Nursing Home Resident Arrested, Charged, and Named

The brute’s name is Jayden Hayden.

Published

The perpetrator of a horrific taped assault at a patient at a Michigan nursing home has been arrested, charged, and finally named.

Detroit Police arrested 20-year old Jayden Hayden of Ypsilanti, Michigan on Sunday morning. Hayden is being charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm, larceny in a building and two counts of financial transaction device, steal/retain without consent.

The financial crimes relate to Hayden allegedly stealing the credit cards of 75-year old Norman Bledsoe.

The conscience of the nation had been shocked when video of Hayden brutally assaulting the senior citizen in a nursing home bedroom went viral. President Trump himself expressed his shock at the callous footage, in which Hayden repeatedly punched and beat the U.S. Army veteran.

Hayden has apparently uploaded videos online of other despicable assaults against senior citizens.

Detroit Prosecutor Kym Worthy expressed her resolve to hold Hayden criminally accountable for the heinous crime.

The alleged actions of this defendant are truly and uniquely disturbing. We must be able to trust our loved ones in specialty care facilities. I truly hope that the facts of this care are one of a kind.” Hayden was arraigned in court on Sunday morning.

New facts of the case seem to suggest that Hayden himself was a short-term resident of the Westwood Nursing Center, as opposed to an employee of the facility, which some had speculated.

Hayden seems to express racist and anti-white beliefs in some of his social media uploads, stating that he believes that “black people are meant to rule the earth.” However, it doesn’t appear as if local authorities are treating the savage, cowardly assault as a hate crime at this point.
