Seven Deceptive Claims Jimmy Kimmel Made About Guns in One Monologue

By AWR Hawkins

During his opening monologue on Monday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, host Jimmy Kimmel made seven false or misleading statements about gun laws as part of a push to shame Congress into enacting increased gun control measures following Sunday’s attack on a country music concert in Las Vegas that left 59 people dead and hundreds more injured.

Ironically, he did this after admitting that the Las Vegas attacker complied with all gun controls in purchasing a number of firearms–meaning he passed background checks for those guns. Moreover, Kimmel even admitted that the attacker had “no criminal record,” and therefore, nothing to keep him from passing a check to acquire a gun.

Breitbart News reported Monday that the attacker purchased three guns within the last year from Guns & Guitars in Mesquite, Nevada, where store manager Christopher Sullivan said the attacker came across as “a normal guy.” Sullivan said the attacker had no criminal history and indicated that he passed a FBI background check for his firearms.

Kimmel is correct on one point–there was nothing in the attacker’s past that signaled a problem. But after making that point, Kimmel argued that there are still things that Congress could be doing (and this is where the falsehoods and/or misdirection come into play).

****

1. Kimmel said, “Orlando, Aurora, Newtown, San Bernardino, [in] every one of these shootings the murderer used automatic or semiautomatic rifles.” The inclusion of the word “automatic” is very misleading. In all four instances the rifle used was semiautomatic, period. Pistols were also present. Moreover, Kimmel did not mention that in three of the four instances, the attackers acquired their guns via background checks. Exceptions to this would be the rifles used in San Bernardino–they were acquired via a friend–but the San Bernardino handguns were acquired via a background check. And the guns used by the Newtown attacker were stolen. He stole them from someone who passed a background check for them.

2. Kimmel made the classic leftist claim that AR-15s and the like “are not weapons used for self-defense.” In doing so, he ignored the report of the Houston boy who used his father’s AR-15 to defend his sister’s life during a home invasion. When the two intruders broke into the home, the boy grabbed his father’s AR and shot one of them three times. He also ignored the Michigan gas station owner who stopped a robbery in progress at his station by pulling his AR-15 on the robbers. He also ignored the Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, son who was home alone when he used his father’s AR-15 to stop a home invasion by shooting all three suspects. The suspects died but the son’s life was preserved. Read the rest of this article at Breitbart.com.

Swamp Co-Opts Trump to Campaign for Luther Strange to Protect GOP Establishment from Breitbart-Backed Grassroots Challengers

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his gang of establishment Republicans implored President Donald Trump to campaign for establishment Republican Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL) against conservative frontrunner Roy Moore, the former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice, because they reportedly are terrified that more grassroots candidates across the country will challenge establishment Republicans if Moore defeats Strange on Tuesday.

Moore has led in every poll leading up to Tuesday’s runoff in what has been described as the “first proxy battle” between Trump and his former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, who has vowed to support the economic nationalist agenda that got Trump elected in the first place.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and former White House adviser Sebastian Gorka will campaign for Moore on Thursday. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will campaign for Strange on Friday and Monday, respectively.

According to the Washington Post, Trump’s advisers “were deeply divided on whether” Trump “should risk jetting to Alabama to prop up” Strange. But GOP establishment forces reportedly waged “an intense behind-the-scenes campaign to convince Trump that he could carry Strange across the finish line with an appearance in Alabama.”

Though White House Chief of Staff John Kelly was reportedly hesitant about sending Trump to Alabama to potentially waste his political capital, establishment Senate Republicans were “unwilling to let the president turn his attention elsewhere” because they worried that a Strange defeat “could prompt some GOP senators to retire to avoid facing the wrath of anti-establishment voters and the likes of Bannon’s Breitbart News,” according to the Post’s Bob Costa.

Monuments Madness, Phase II: The Right Begins Self-Censoring

Josh Edelson / Associated Press

By Amanda House

Threats of violence and fears of the label “racist” spur conservatives to self-censor. Local law enforcement officers and conservative organizers continue to shut down or cancel peaceful free speech events after the left labels them “white supremacist” rallies.

The targeting of free speech and America’s past began long before the violence in Charlottesville and long before Donald Trump won the presidency. This has nothing to do with the Confederacy or a resurgence of white supremacists. This is basic iconoclasm, with cultural revolutionaries directing their hatred at a politically-anointed totem.

We’ve seen this trend throughout history: aggressive rejection of the status quo. It’s a common component of major – usually radical – political and cultural change, just like international movements, from China’s cultural revolution in the ’60s and ’70s – which left 1.5 million people dead – to the Taliban’s destruction of centuries-old Buddhist statues and the Islamic State’s ongoing devastation of ancient sites. This iconoclastic sentiment – a groupthink fever spreading relatively unchecked – now infects America. First, the herd goes for the statues. Then comes the book burning. Eventually, we see the targeting of individuals and their freedoms. The tactics are totalitarian, the monuments, simply weapons to attack the First Amendment. Continue reading at breitbart.com.

Donald Trump: Senate ‘Let the American People Down’ by Failing to Repeal Obamacare

President Donald Trump signaled disappointment that the Senate failed to pass an Obamacare repeal, after hours of failed Republican attempts to keep their promise to the American people.

“3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down,” he wrote on Twitter. “As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!”

The final attempt to vote on a “skinny repeal” ultimately failed, after Sen. John McCain voted against McConnell’s last ditch effort to go after the unpopular bill. He was joined by Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Cntinue reading at breitbart.com.

Teen’s Good Deed for Officer Turns Into Suspension at Work

Great Americn Cookies, h/t: Breitbart

– A teen worker who wanted to do something nice for a police officer ended up punished instead.  The story has absolutely exploded on social media.

18-year-old Zack Randolph was working Sunday at Great American Cookies at Katy Mills Mall.  A police officer placed an order and the teen said he would like to pay for the officer’s dessert.  How is that a problem?  Well, the person in line behind the officer apparently didn’t like it, and the teen ended up suspended, but the story doesn’t end there.

“He was told you know you’re probably going to get fired,” says the 18-year-old’s mom Tami Randolph.  Fired?  For what? The teenager says the police officer also works in the mall and he just wanted to be kind and buy the officer the cheesecake brownie he ordered to show his appreciation for protecting and serving our community.

“He’s just a really nice guy and on top of that he has a badge. That’s enough for me to buy him something. That’s the least I can do,” explains Zack Randolph. The teen paid the $2.75 for the brownie with his own money. “Yes ma’am. I didn’t even use the employee discount, full price,” says Randolph. Read more at fox26houston.com.

DeepStateGate: Democrats’ ‘Russian Hacking’ Conspiracy Theory Backfires

“It would then seem that the “Russia hacking” story was concocted not just to explain away an embarrassing election defeat, but to cover up the real scandal.”

Democrats’ efforts to raise suspicions about alleged — and, thus far, imaginary — links between President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government may have backfired spectacularly.

The spotlight is now on President Barack Obama and his administration’s alleged surveillance of the Trump campaign, as well as his aides’ reported efforts to spread damaging information about Trump throughout government agencies to facilitate later investigations and, possibly, leaks to the media.

On Sunday morning, the White House released a statement indicating that the president would ask the congressional committees investigating Russian hacking theories to add the question of “whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016.”

Media outlets continued to repeat that the story was based on “no evidence,” though the evidence was plain. Read the rest of the story HERE.

Trump’s PATCO Moment

Trump’s PATCO Moment: Emanating Reagan, the President Takes Control of Federal Government to ‘Protect the Country and Its Citizens’

President Donald Trump’s firing of a politically motivated official—now-former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, for her refusal to enforce the laws of the nation and carry out the administration’s policy—harkens back to a previous president who faced a similar crisis at the beginning of his administration.

CNN has been framing this in its lower-third chyron throughout the evening as “the Monday Night Massacre”—a reference to President Richard Nixon’s firing of both his Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General when they refused to get rid of a special prosecutor who was investigating him—with the intent to paint Trump as an off-the-rails tyrant. But even Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein, appearing on CNN late Monday night, rejected the comparison his own network CNN was making to the Nixon administration’s “Saturday Night Massacre.”

“There’s a big difference, because the Saturday Night Massacre was really about firing the attorney general when Nixon was the target of an investigation and was actively obstructing justice,” Bernstein said. “I think the president is within his rights here to fire the attorney general, that he has that ability.”

The reference that is much more accurate in this case is a reference to a different previous GOP president, an outsider battling to gain control of the federal government in his early days in office. Former White House political director Jeffrey Lord, who served under President Ronald Reagan, told Breitbart News that this matches Reagan’s battles with the bureaucracy at the beginning of his administration.

“I remember vividly when President Reagan fired the air traffic controllers—the PATCO union which had endorsed him as a candidate—in 1981,” Lord said in an email. “All of Washington was saying this was a mistake. He did it anyway, totally violating the Washington political and media elite conventional wisdom of the day. Kudos to President Trump for doing the 21st century version of Reagan’s bold firing to uphold principle. Elites will hate it but Americans will love it. More to the point they will get it.”

Back when President Reagan first took office, in the spring of 1981 while he was still recovering from the failed assassination attempt by John Hinckley, his Transportation Secretary Drew Lewis informed him that the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization (PATCO) planned to strike.

It’s Time for Gays to Come Home to Republican Party

Orlando Pulse Club Massacre

By Jim Hoft:

Early Sunday morning, Islamic extremist Omar Mateen murdered at least 49 people at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

Mateen, of Fort Pierce, Florida, was interviewed by the FBI in 2013 and 2014 after he told coworkers he had ties to Islamic extremists. But Mateen was not found to be a threat, the FBI said, so he dropped off their radar.

A former coworker said company officials refused to investigate Omar’s frequent racist and homophobic attacks “because he was Muslim.” So, once again, political correctness is linked to another Islamist massacre.

Omar Mateen took time out during his mass slaughter of gays at Pulse nightclub to call 911 and pledge his allegiance to ISIS. Then he ended the call and killed some more gays.

And it should be noted that Omar Mateen cased other gay clubs before he decided to kill gays at The Pulse on Latino night.

After the deadliest Islamist attack on American soil since 9-11 Barack Obama blamed hatred and guns. His inability to called[sic] the attack what it is – Islamic jihad – has progressed from denial to psychosis. It’s never been more apparent than Sunday, when Barack was comparing the Pulse club attack to a movie theater shooting by a schizophrenic, that our poor president has lost his own grasp of reality (Bold text mine).

Obama was not the only one. Leftwing gay activists posted ridiculous and ignorant remarks after the deadliest single attack on gays in modern history. Continue reading at Breitbart.com.  Warning:  Some graphic text follows.

Et tu Delegates (Donald Trump Must Beware of Trojan Horse Delegates)

Trump Trojan Horse

A state party staffer from a large Northeastern state passed the entry codes for a conference call of five Republican chairmen from significant states this past Saturday. The topic on the table? Stopping Donald Trump. I had to listen in.

These hard-boiled pols know the nomination will be decided not on the first ballot, but in a series of procedural votes by the entire convention to adopt the rules of the convention as recommended by the Rules Committee and the seating of the delegates as recommended by the Credentials Committee. Those key committees are made up by two members from each state. The bosses have been quietly planting establishment regulars in these spots.

The Trump camp has been inattentive to this process. The party kingmakers may have the votes to knee-cap Trump in the rules and credentials committees, as they did Congressman Ron Paul in 2012.

The kingmakers have planned to steal the nod from Donald Trump.

Now they party insiders want to make sure they have a working majority on the floor for the passage of their “license to steal.” Republican state chairs are planting Trojan Horse delegates into slots won by Trump on the first ballot to vote with them on procedural votes to pass the Rules and Credentials Reports that will seal the “Big Steal.” This is going on in Texas, New York, Massachusetts, Michigan, Connecticut, North Dakota, and other states. continue reading at breitbart.com.
