Pelosi Attacks Trump for not Addressing “Gun Violence Epidemic”

Published

on

Not wasting time after President Trump’s State of the Union address, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lambasted Trump’s speech for not addressing “the gun violence epidemic”.

Pelosi also made sure to criticize Trump’s concerns with border security and pivot the discussion to gun control.  Pelosi can whine all she wants about the so-called “gun violence epidemic”, but the facts have an inconvenient way of bringing down her dubious assertions. Contrary to popular belief, there is no gun violence epidemic in the United States.

For a start, school shootings have actually been on the decline since the 1990s. According to Criminology Professor James Alan Fox’s research, four times as many children were killed in shootings during the early 90s than in present times. School children these days are more likely to die drowning or in bike accidents.

However, dropping incidences of gun violence go beyond the school yard. Declining crime rates were seen from 1993 to 2013, a period when per capita gun ownership increased by 56 percent and gun violence dropped by 49 percent during the same time frame.  From a big picture perspective, the United States hit a 51-year low in homicide rates during 2014.

Despite hand-wringing from anti-gunners, more guns and laxer carry laws have not translated into more crime.  However, gun controllers don’t care about facts.

On the day after the State of the Union, there were hearings on H.R. 8, the House’s Universal Background Check bill. Universal Background Checks are already law in 11 states, and now Congress critters want to bring them to the DC swamp. Anti-gun Democrats took the House in the 2018 midterms, and want to leave their mark by ramming gun control through. With a safe majority in the House, they will likely pass H.R 8 with relative ease.

The Republican-controlled Senate is a different story, but a number of squishy Republicans like Rick Scott, Marco Rubio, Mitt Romney, and Lindsay Graham could make things interesting if H.R. 8 makes its way to the Senate. It’s anyone’s guess what could happen in the 116th Congress, but there’s no denying that gun control will be one of the most polarizing issues for the next year or so.

However, let’s not kid ourselves. The concerns about a gun violence epidemic are misplaced.

Instead, there is an epidemic of control freak politicians who think they know better than the average American on how to defend themselves and their loved ones.  For that reason, Second Amendment supporters must keep their eyes peeled for any anti-gun shenanigans when Congress is in session.

The White House Walks Back From DACA Deal…. For Now

Published

on

Emerald Robinson, the Newsmax White House Correspondent, reported that White House advisor Jared Kushner is holding meetings on a potential DACA amnesty deal.

She tweeted, “BREAKING: sources confirm that White House advisor Jared Kushner has been holding meetings on DACA amnesty deal – with a goal of getting it done before the 2020 election.”

For many America First activists, Kushner has played a subversive role in the Trump administration by recommending milquetoast policies that maintain the open border status quo and are soft on crime.

Many speculate that Kushner is largely the individual who is advising President Trump to take a soft approach against the looters rampaging across the country.

Now there are reports that the White House is backing away from this DACA deal per a report from Breitbart News.

However, grassroots immigration patriots such as Maria Espinoza, the co-founder of the Remembrance Project, had choice words for this rumored move by Jared Kushner.

She told BLP:

Donald Trump’s promise to The Remembrance Project’s angel moms, dads, and angel families of ‘Stolen Lives’ was to deport illegal aliens and keep American families safe. No family should suffer the killing of their loved one at the hands of an individual who should not have been in our country in the first place.

Any talks taking place should be about keeping us safe so that our families, businesses and communities can thrive.  It’s heartless for Kushner to even hold talks of amnesty.

Espinoza added:

Kushner, an unelected individual, certainly should not negotiate to keep illegal aliens in our country!  Illegals, by the way who have shown no regard for our laws, and have had ample time to become legal continue to snub our law.
A Kushner Amnesty for illegal alien DACA recipients will ensure that millions of Americans will stay home in November, which will quash President Trump’s re-election.

DACA refers to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a United States immigration policy where some illegal aliens who were brought to the country as children in order to obtain a renewable two-period of deferred action from deportation and receive eligibility for work permits in the U.S.

Back in 2014, President Barack Obama revealed his intention to broaden DACA provisions to cover even more illegal alien immigrants.

This is in contrast to the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act. Under the DREAM Act, illegal aliens would be granted temporary conditional residency that includes the right to work if they were brought to the United States as minors. If they meet additional qualifications, they would be able to receive permanent residency.

Although these kinds of proposals are different, they’re all a part of a mass migration agenda designed to undermine the Historic American Nation.

Kushner and his ilk believe that offering reasonable compromises will somehow placate the Left.

In reality, such compromises will only further embolden them, given the fact that the voting patterns of these groups overwhelmingly favor the political Left and its many pet projects such as the destruction of the right to bear arms.

Although the DACA threat may be contained for now, as long as Open Borders Inc and its many factions continue operating, there will always be a looming threat of legal migration expansion, amnesty, or backdoor amnesties.

This is why it’s so important that America First patriots score major victories in all branches of government.

The time to engage in political discourse is over. Now, we must force politicians to go on record via roll call votes. From there, we’ll know who’s America First or America Last.
