The Sunday Edition (.007)


Confederate Memorial Day was May 10.
Tomorrow is Memorial Day. Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces. The holiday, which is observed every year on the last Monday of May, originated as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868, when the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans founded in Decatur, Illinois, established it as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. By the 20th century, competing Union and Confederate holiday traditions, celebrated on different days, had merged, and Memorial Day eventually extended to honor all Americans who died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

• We can all breathe easy now that Facebook has declared itself innocent of influencing Facebook users by artificially suppressing conservative topics on its "Trending News" feed while promoting "progressive" topics. If you're a conservative or a Christian and you do the Facebook thing, then you may have run into Facebook bias already.

Here's a weird thing: Glen Beck (conservative pundit) loves Mark Zuckerberg and believes him when the internet billionaire says Facebook is clueless about the Trending Topic's accusation. Glen Beck used to be funny before he sobered up.

• In yet more Facebook news, there is no escaping Facebook’s advertising reach. The social network has announced that it will now be foisting ads on to every single person who uses third-party sites that are signed up to its advertising scheme, regardless of whether the user has a Facebook account or not.

Until now, Facebook showed ads only to its members when people landed on third-party sites that were signed up to its Audience Network ad system. That meant that it only ever bothered tracking what Facebook users did, in order to learn about them and better target advertising.

Now, though, reports the Wall Street Journal, it will use the same techniques—largely plug-in and cookies, but also Like buttons too— in order to track what everyone does when visiting those web pages.

• In a letter to Congressman Goodlatte, the IRS Commissioner says he’s too busy to attend his own impeachment hearings. This is the same IRS that targets conservative groups. Well, so much for a free and fair America. Why do those who do such things always get away with it? Why? I'll tell you why -- because they were working for the Democratic Party and have the blessing (and knowledge) of the president. The truth is, all those communists we call our leaders should be shot. It's time for a reset.


• When President Obama says he wants people to "morally evolve," that's just code language meaning Obama simply wants people to come around to his way of looking at things. You know that, right? If everybody agreed with me, then I'd know how it felt to be Elvis. I love you all and good night, America!

Morally evolve, my athletic ass! How can a grown man say such things and expect to be taken seriously? I suppose the same thing could be said about me, but then again, I'm not the president. If I was, I'd tell you all who killed Kennedy and I would confess that the whole show is out of control because of the lack of morality and proper leadership.

Take a breath. You're going to need it because now we're going to look at the continued erosion of the right to self-defense. If you want to skip the gun stuff, scroll down until you see the pic of Austin Powers.

• The Mission Statement for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence says it "seeks to secure freedom from gun violence through research, strategic engagement and effective policy advocacy." That's certainly a mouthful, eh? Who knows just exactly what it means? How far will they go in securing my freedom from gun violence?

As a lifelong hack, wordsmith, whatever, whenever I see such a painfully contorted sentence as that offered above, I recognize an inability to state a coherent argument. So, the logic of language is dropped by misusing words and making up definitions that are more to the "progressives" liking. The new language suits the purposes of revolution. As Charles Manson is credited with saying, "Nonsense makes sense."

I wondered who funds these people (the CSGV) and then I see that their address is in Washington, DC. These people are highly funded, highly motivated, Washington insiders and eventually they want to repeal the 2nd Amendment. But don't worry, by that time the entire Constitution will be a moot point. It may be already.

• More gun news. Law-abiding gun owners in Los Angeles are to be punished as a result shooting spree by Muslim terrorists. From the LA Times:

The state Senate on Thursday approved sweeping new restrictions on using guns in California in response to the December mass shooting by two terrorists that left 14 dead in San Bernardino.

Lawmakers approved 11 bills including measures mandating background checks for Californians buying ammunition and outlawing the manufacture and sale of semiautomatic rifles with detachable magazines.

The bills, which next go to the Assembly for consideration, represent the most ambitious effort at gun control in decades in California, which already has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation.

...The measures banning rifles with detachable magazines and requiring background checks for ammo buyers are opposed by the National Rifle Assn., Gun Owners of California and the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms industry.

...Two of the bills approved by the Senate would ban the manufacture and sale of semiautomatic rifles with detachable magazines as well as semiautomatic, center-fire rifles with “bullet buttons,” a recessed button that, when pressed by a sharp object, allows removal of the magazine.

Those already possessing such guns would have to register them with the state as assault rifles.

...Another measure approved Thursday would ban the possession of large-capacity magazines, those holding more than 10 bullets. Sen. Loni Hancock (D-Berkeley) told her colleagues that large-capacity magazines were found at the scene of the San Bernardino shooting.

...Yet another bill approved Thursday, authored by De León [Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De León (D-Los Angeles)], would require those buying ammunition to present identification, which would be used by the seller to check to make sure the buyer is not a felon or otherwise prohibited from possessing guns.

This is a total gun ban.

The government lets the terrorists in, they shoot people up who were nothing but nice to them (so the official story goes), then the government bans law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves from said terrorists.

Great job, guys.

• Why can't you get a BA in Christian Studies at a state-run university?

Is Michelle Obama a man? Might explain why all this transgender stuff is in the national news. Pretty far out, eh?

• Last week’s unanimous passage of a Senate bill making it easier for 9/11 families to sue Saudi Arabia and other foreign terror sponsors was widely heralded as a major victory.

It’s more of a cruel hoax.

It turns out that just before the vote, Sen. Charles Schumer and other proponents of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act stuffed an amendment into the final draft allowing the attorney general and secretary of state to stop any litigation against the Saudis in its tracks.The madness goes on and on and on...

Yes, JASTA would remove the statutory restrictions that have prevented 9/11 families from taking the Saudi kingdom to court. But Schumer helped craft an entirely new section to the original bill, giving the Justice and State departments the power to stay court action indefinitely. All they have to do is inform the judge hearing the case that the US government has engaged with ­Riyadh in diplomatic talks to resolve the issue.

Charles Shumer is a known professional politician, gun-grabber, a globalist, a Democrat, and a yankee from New York. How many things can a man have going against him?

  2. Submit, flee, or fight.

    Submit to slavery, re-education, 2nd class citizenry? Never.

    Flee? There's nowhere to go. Time to make a stand.

    Fight? If you haven't noticed, the fight started years ago.

    No more communists, no more muslims, no Sharia law, no "social justice," all this freedom-killing sh*t has to go. Send democrats to re-education camps.
