After the El Paso Walmart massacre, which left 20 killed, the usual screams for gun control erupted on Twitter.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican, is now renewing his push for red flag gun confiscation orders.

BLP has previously reported on Graham’s efforts to move this legislation in the Senate.

With another mass shooting and national uproar, Graham might get his wish after all.

On Twitter Graham declared, “El Paso shooting is sick and senseless. Time to do more than pray. Time to enact common-sense legislation in Congress to empower states to deal with those who present a danger to themselves and others — while respecting robust due process.”

 

 

He then added, “May not have mattered here, but Red Flag laws have proven to be effective in states that have them. (2/2)”

 

Red flag laws allow judges to confiscate an individual’s guns without due process just for being a perceived “threat”.

17 states have passed these laws so far.

Many gun rights activists fear that these laws could be a Trojan Horse for even larger infringements on gun rights.

Dudley Brown, the President of the National Association for Gun Rights, views red flag laws as an springboard  for potential law enforcement abuse:

They [Law enforcement] can literally come to your house at 2 in the morning. Yes, they can knock on the door. Sometimes they don’t knock. Sometimes they use a battering ram to open the door.

Interestingly, Connecticut was one of the first states in the nation to pass red flag laws in 1999. However, such a law could not prevent Adam Lanza from carrying out his slaughter at Sandy Hook in 2012.

BLP will keep a close eye on any new developments regarding red flag bills in Congress.

 

 

 

 

Campaign 2020

The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters

Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.

Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters. 

Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits. 

He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.

The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:

Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…

By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.

For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats. 

Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another. 

In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election. 

Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
