The Democrats Want You Out To Be of Work

Exactly 234 years ago this week, two of America’s founding fathers documented their first exposure to Islamic jihad in a letter to Congress; like many Americans today, they too were shocked at what they learned.
Context: in 1785, Muslim pirates from North Africa, or “Barbary,” had captured two American ships, the Maria and Dauphin, and enslaved their crews. In an effort to ransom the enslaved Americans and establish peaceful relations, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams—then ambassadors to France and Britain respectively—met with Tripoli’s ambassador to Britain, Abdul Rahman Adja. Following this diplomatic exchange, the Americans laid out the source of Barbary’s hitherto inexplicable animosity in a letter to Congress, dated March 28, 1786:
"We took the liberty to make some inquiries concerning the grounds of their [Barbary’s] pretentions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury, and observed that we considered all mankind as our friends who had done us no wrong, nor had given us any provocation. The ambassador answered us that it was founded on the laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Musselman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise."
Abdul had continued by smugly noting that Islam’s “law” offers “as an incentive” more slaves to those who are first to board infidel vessels, and that the power and appearance of the seaborne jihadis—who reportedly always carried three knives, one in each hand and another in their mouths—“so terrified their enemies that very few ever stood against them.”
One can only imagine what the American ambassadors—who years earlier had asserted that all men were “endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights”—thought of their Muslim counterpart’s answer. Suffice to say, because the ransom demanded was over fifteen times greater than what Congress had approved, little came of the meeting.
The problem with being a radical, fanatical activist for climate change is that nothing else matters. There are no other issues to discuss or address. The world could be ending and climate activists would claim it's not happening fast enough.In Other News
So it shouldn't surprise us that global warming fanatics want to piggyback their agenda onto the $2 trillion stimulus deal currently being negotiated.
Trump is losing patience.
Madonna fans are blasting the "Material Girl" after she released an Instagram video showing herself sitting naked in a bathtub filled with milky water and rose petals and declaring coronavirus as "the great equalizer."
They will fail. They have failed.
But YOU must defeat them. That means standing up to the lies. Facing the truth, calling out the panic with calm and resolute strength. Being bold in the face of the cowering simps on the TV screen and in the newspaper columns. Speaking out with authority, facing facts, and sharing those facts with others.
Fact: You’re going to die.
Fact: Just not today. And almost certainly NOT from the Wuhan Virus.
Fact: America will get through this. Because YOU are an American. YOU are brave, and strong, and kind.
You just need to be reminded of that from time to time. It’s so easy to forget, when you’re force-fed a diet of how rotten you are. From people who are rotten to the core.
They are evil. You are good. Never, EVER forget that.
The "Russian collusion" case ended in an embarrassing whimper Monday. It turns out that in order to have a "Russian collusion" case, one must have "Russians" and "collusion." As we found out in the Mueller report from last year, there was no collusion with President Trump. On Monday, Mueller's prosecutors admitted they're running out of Russians, too.In Other News
Left in the wreckage, the first three years of the Trump candidacy and presidency, his reputation, the erosion of confidence in American governmental institutions, his friends and advisors imprisoned on process crimes from the corrupt investigation and Leftist governmental bots who planned it all who are not in prison.
The charges against three Russian "bot" farms and 13 individuals in Mueller's so-called Russian collusion case were dropped with prejudice on Monday. But the conclusion of the case was never in doubt.
"Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47," failed presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke promised back in September. "We're not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore."
It seems that every cycle, Democrats get more and more radical when it comes to wanting to infringe on our Second Amendment rights. Some, like Beto O'Rourke, weren't so shy about it, while others, like Joe Biden, claim to support the Second Amendment while promising to put people like Beto in charge of gun control.
As much as Democrats want to get guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens, their campaigning on gun control has proven to have the opposite effect than they hoped for. According to FBI gun records, background checks for weapons purchases for January and February are up 30 percent over the previous year. The Washington Examiner reports that in the previous two months, "there have been 5,505,169 checks. Last year, there were 4,218,980 background checks in January and February." If this trend continues, 2020 will be a record-breaking year for the most background checks (over 30 million) through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday upheld a ruling that allows House Democrats to view secret grand jury information from Robert Mueller’s Russia probe that had been redacted from his report.In Other News
The court’s 2-1 decision agreed with a lower court that the House Judiciary Committee can obtain the information for impeachment investigations of President Trump under an exception for “judicial proceedings,” per the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure.
