School of Journalism Prof: NRA more Dangerous than Islamic State

Is spewing such nonsense genetic or the result of never holding a job in the real world, i.e. the private section.

 

How does this MORON get to keep his job??? In

In actuality, people like him working to INDOCTRINATE not EDUCATE our YOUTH are the Biggest Clear & Present Danger to our Society!!

 

It’s time for so-called academics to get back to teaching reality, leaving their individual bias’ at the door while at the same time begin to teach critical thinking skills, for the most part, they have little if any knowledge of this concept. 

 

 

It better for all those who attended Kennedy’s classes that he is no longer teaching but is a professor emeritus. 

This is why tenure must be crushed and performance-based education must rule the day.

How asinine is American academia today?

It just keeps getting worse.

What expanse of territory does the NRA control?

How many people has the NRA beheaded and brutalized there?

What calls has the NRA issued to its followers and other sympathetic people to murder civilians in the U.S. and other countries?

Where are the sex slaves that the NRA has captured from among feminist gun control advocates?

 

 

A blinkered Leftist propagandist such as George Kennedy should not be allowed anywhere near a university classroom.

Instead, however, the Missouri School of Journalism will probably bring him back and make him head of the department.

“MO School of Journalism Prof: NRA More Dangerous Than Islamic State,” by AWR Hawkins, Breitbart, April 20, 2017:

Missouri School of Journalism professor emeritus George Kennedy suggests the National Rifle Association (NRA) is more dangerous than Islamic State.

Writing in the Missourian, Kennedy observed:

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is a terrorist organization founded in 1999, headquartered in Syria and feared around the world.

The NRA was founded in 1891, headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia, and is feared by politicians across America.

To be fair, the NRA was actually founded in 1871, but Kennedy continued:

What makes the Islamic State so feared it its willingness to kill in pursuit of its goal of creating a fundamentalist caliphate.

What makes the NRA so feared is its willingness to spend heavily and campaign aggressively in pursuit of its goal of removing all restrictions on the possession and use of firearms just about anywhere by just about anyone.

Enough with the brainwashing!

 

Notice how Kennedy went from incorrect information–the wrong founding date for the NRA–to unsubstantiated claims that the NRA wants to allow “possession and use of firearms just about anywhere by just about anyone.”

In reality, the NRA fights for the enforcement of the law and the prosecution of firearm-wielding criminals with a fervor equaled only by its defense of law-abiding citizens’ right to keep and bear arms. Kennedy’s language muddies the water and misses the point.

Kennedy then claims the number of Americans killed by ISIS jihadists since 9/11 is nine.

That is not a typo, he actually links to a Euronews source and claims only nine Americans have been killed by ISIS jihadists since the terror attacks on NYC in 2001.

Where were Kennedy and the Euronews when an attacker claiming allegiance to ISIS attacked Orlando Pulse and killed 49 people on June 12, 2016?

That gunman literally used a 911 call to announce his allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

And the Orlando Pulse attack is not the only one that could be mentioned to disprove Kennedy and his Euronews source.

Kennedy’s purpose is claiming “only nine” Americans killed by terrorists was really to set up his second point, that “11,737 Americans” are murdered each year with guns.

This figure is actually close to the truth.

The average number of firearm-related homicides hovers around 10,500 to 11,500 annually.

Many of these homicides occur in gang-riddled cities like Chicago, Detroit, and Baltimore.

For example, there were nearly 800 homicides in Chicago in 2016 and over 300 in Baltimore.

So a tenth of our nation’s homicides occurred in two Democrat-controlled cities, both of which look to gun control as the solution for the failure of gun control….

Senate goes ‘nuclear’ as GOP changes rules, clears path for Trump Supreme Court pick

 

 

Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and the rest of today’s progressive party have clearly forgotten the number of times they filibustered President George W. Bush’s nominations for the  federal bench.

 

In their hypocrisy they held back the nomination of justice Miguel Estrada. for twenty months, eventually leading to his withdrawal as a nominee. (Source)

This has never seriously been about Obama’s ability to receive a Senate confirmation hearing on justice Merrick Garland, it’s just the way democrats play their brand of politics , like kinds in a sandbox.

They did their party no favor and likely harmed their chances in the upcoming elections particularly in states the Donald J. Trump won by large margins.

Tenth District Court nominee, is eminently more qualified than Obama’s picks of Sotomayor and Kagan (Source)

Kagan will always represent a threat to the Second Amendment as she has said she favors the Miller ruling by the Supreme court which she wrongly interpreted.  (Source)

Tomorrow, April 7th, 2017 justice Neil Gorsuch will be sworn in as a justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

 

Tenth District Court Justice Neil Gorsuch
 
April 6, 2017

Republicans triggered the “nuclear option” Thursday, changing the filibuster rules and paving the way for Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s first Supreme Court pick, to be approved later this week.

 

After weeks of threatening, Democrats mounted the first successful partisan filibuster of a high court nominee in U.S. history, and Republicans — following a script Democrats pioneered four years ago — retaliated by changing the rules and eliminating the power of the filibuster to hold up any nominees.

“This will be the first — and last — partisan filibuster of a Supreme Court nomination,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed, saying he didn’t relish changing the rules but argued Democrats forced him into it.

The fallout from Thursday’s vote also threatens to poison the Senate for the foreseeable future, worsening already abysmal relations between Republicans and Democrats who have feuded over every step of Mr. Trump’s agenda.

But Republicans said Judge Gorsuch, who has won rave reviews from both liberal and conservative legal scholars, was worthy of the fight.

His final confirmation, expected Friday afternoon, will give Mr. Trump an early win on a key campaign promises.

Democrats put up fierce resistance, both to Judge Gorsuch and to the nuclear vote.

Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, who pioneered the nuclear option when fellow Democrats changed the filibuster rules for other nominees in 2013, said the GOP would be blamed for this final step.

“When history weighs what happened, the responsibility for changing the rules will fall on the Republicans and Leader McConnell’s shoulders,” he said. “No one forced them to act; they acted with free will. We offered them alternatives; they refused.”

Democrats have offered a list of reasons for opposing Judge Gorsuch.

Some say Mr. Trumpis too tainted a president to make the pick, while others are still steaming over the GOP’s blockade last year of Judge Merrick Garland, whom President Obama tapped for the same seat but who was denied a hearing, much less a vote.

As for Judge Gorsuch himself, Democrats say they fear he would overturn some precedents, such as the 1973 Roe decision establishing a national constitutional right to an abortion, but wouldn’t overturn others, such as the 2010 decision granting First Amendment free speech rights during political campaigns to interest groups, labor unions,and corporations.

Pelosi Bashes Ivanka Trump For Being ‘Complicit’ In Her Father’s Actions

By Jim Campbell

April 5, 2017

 

Pelosi just can’t leave it alone.

She has no ideas what Ivanka Trump has done for her father’s administration and The United States of America.

Ivanka is a bright accomplished woman owning a clothing and shoe line while Nancy Pelosi who could only be voted into to office is because here district is San Francisco.  (Source)

Of course, some of Ivanka’s lines are currently made in Asia. (Source)

That will soon change when he get’s China and other countries to quit manipulating their currencies.

 

 

Ivanka, is clearly going somewhere and that direction is straight up!

For here part Pelosi, made here money the old-fashioned way that politicians do, she stole it.

Our country will be a better place when Pelosi is resting quietly in a San Francisco bone orchard.

 

 

 

 

Give me a big break here. 

When has Nancy Pelosi and her ilk ever done anything that was good and right for the people of the United States.

Pelosi, is an unmitigated fraud.

She will not be missed even by her husband when she got legislation passed allowing American Samoa to pay $5.20 an hour when it was $720 an hour at the Star Kissed headquarters in San Francisco.

Coincidence, not likely.

Nunes ‘Unmasking’ Report Vindicates Trump Claims on Surveillance

It could not be more clear that United States Citizens can expect anything more than lies, and perjury from the alphabet soup agencies that are supposed to be on the side of the good guys.

 

In a huge win for America and its citizens, House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) showed for certain he is not among the crooked in the swamp.

It’s nice to finally see President vindicated and it’s time for the left-wing-nuts calling for him to apologize to Obama to STFU!

 

Mar. 22 2017

House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) announced on Wednesday that he had learned that members of President Donald Trump’s transition team had been under surveillance by the Obama administration, that individual names had been “unmasked” by the intelligence community, and that those names had been leaked to the media.

Nunes’s information — which he said he would deliver to the White House later, vindicates the bulk of Trump’s claims earlier this month.

Nunes said that while there was no direct “wiretap” by President Barack Obama of Trump Tower, there was indeed surveillance, perhaps collected incidentally, of people close to Trump, possibly including Trump himself.

Much of that had been suspected, on the basis of mainstream media reports, but Rep. Nunes reported something new: that the surveillance did not involve the ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) inquiry into Russia’s alleged involvement in the 2016 presidential election. Indeed, none of the surveillance had intelligence value, he said.

“I believe it was all done legally,” Nunes told a press conference.

The question, he said, was why names of those swept up in the surveillance had been leaked. The collection of the intelligence appeared to have been legal, but the leaking may have been illegal.

Most of the activity occurred during the transition period from November to January. Furthermore, Nunes said, he did not know whether phone calls, including phone calls involving Trump, were among the communications captured.

Nunez added that the new information had come to light after Monday’s hearing with FBI Director James Comey, when the congressman had appealed to anyone with new information to come forward. He said the new revelations had been “legally brought to me by sources who thought that we should know it.

The new information vindicates earlier reporting by Breitbart News, Mark Levin, and others, and which President Trump may have relied upon in tweeting the wiretapping claim Mar. 4. (Source)

Following Monday’s hearing, the mainstream media appeared to celebrate Comey’s statement that there was no evidence of wiretapping at Trump Tower. Politicians, too, piled on — including some Republicans, like Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who demanded that Trump apologize to Obama.

However, the only new revelation at the hearing was that senior members of the Obama administration may have been involved in “unmasking” former General Michael Flynn in intelligence reports.

Wednesday’s revelations by Rep. Nunes confirm earlier media reports of surveillance of Trump aides and associates, with the added twist that the revelations were unrelated to investigations of Russian ties to the Trump campaign.

No evidence of any collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign has been found, and former Obama administration intelligence officials have said publicly that such evidence does not exist.

Though the media, and the political opposition, had attacked Trump for his claims about wiretapping, he later clarified that he had used the term to refer to surveillance in a general sense. He also suggested that more evidence would soon emerge.

The result is a vindication of Trump’s controversial claims. Questions remain about whether President Obama himself knew of the surveillance, which other Obama administration officials were involved, and whether Trump was monitored directly.

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch began Senate confirmation hearings today: Predictably Entertaining

By Jim Campbell

 

March 20, 2016

 

 

Predictably while members from each side of the aisle on the Senate Judiciary emphasized the need for impartiality the majority of the time spent in today’s opening hearing was spent contradicting their own positions with a great deal of individual grandstanding, no matter the party. 

 

Speaking of grandstanding, Senator Lyndsey Graham, (R-SC) repeatedly slapped himself on the back for voting for leftist Supreme Court Justices, Kagan, (Source) and Sotomayor. (Source)

 

Is this something he should be proud?

After all, when each in their Senate Justice Department hearings was asked about the Second Amendment, they said, Heller was case law and settled by the Supreme Court.

Each time their Anti-Second Amendment members of congress brought up additional attacks on the Constitutional Right to bear arms, they voted with them. (Source)

It should come as no surprise that those on the left focused on L.G.B.T. rights, birth control, feigned indignation about contributing to political campaigns and abortion while those on the right were concerned about the strict interpretation of the U.S. Constitution as written, including the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights.

By in large, we were treated to a proverbial dog and pony show without the aforementioned animals with more sawdust being created than a lumber yard preparing to provide the wood for a two thousand unit condominium development.

 

The sad part, the taxpayer was forced to pay for this charade, the cost be damned. 

The leftists whined about President Donald Trump as though he were up for nomination.

In addition, they could not get over the fact Senate Judiciary Committee did not entertain Obama’s nomination, in Justice Merrick Garland, no doubt an equally excellent choice.

The Garland Precedent Should Not Stop Gorsuch (Source)

The democrat’s also repeatedly called the denial of  Justice Garland a “Constitutional Crisis?

Was it or were they feeding us another load of you know what?

PBS must be complimented for its coverage of the event, notably when Minnesota Senator, Al Franken was speaking his face was not show.

In reality, Senator Franken made some important points.

They repeatedly attacked the “Hobby Lobby,” decision in which the Supreme Court held that an employer with religious beliefs could not be forced to pay for a woman’s birth control.

What’s that all about?  I don’t recall the government paying for my contraception or my lady friend at the time.

Perhaps, most important, Justice Gorsuch received a unanimous vote in favor for his current position on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.

By a unanimous voice vote, the entire U.S. Senate approved Justice Gorsuch to the bench.

What could have possibly happened since then?

Absolutely nothing but rank hypocrisy displayed by the liberal senators.

Justice Neil Gorsuch’s opinions were upheld 97% of the time by the U.S. Supreme Court while he voted 99% of the time with the majority opinion.

Is this the voting record a justice likely to go rogue?

Hardly!

 

 

More smoke and mirrors, tomorrow and the next day!

Here She Comes, Ready or Not

Not to worry, Donald Trump hasn’t had time to turn his gun sights on Hillary.

 

When he does, justice will be served.

For those new to this site, Hillary Clinton is not dressed like an imaginary figure, though she could well be. 

 

“I’m Ready To Come Out of the Woods” 
But the country will never be ready for you and that for which you stand!

 
Ma Clinton, formerly your repudiated democratic presidential candidate turned flaxen-haired Queen of upstate New York Sasquatch after a long hibernation in wilderness of Chappaqua has announced her intention to return to that which she loves most, ‘Attention.’(Source)

Asked if she would run for Mayor of NYC, Clinton responded:

“I’m not running for mayor of NYC because I can’t afford losing to a double-parked car in queens.”  

 

But after Donald Trump disappointed much of America by not prosecuting the Clinton Crime Organization, and given time to shut down the ClintonGlobull Initiative  (Source) and destroy all the incriminating evidence, Hilda may be looking to lend credence to her batshit crazy, disorganized and headless resistance movement, and become a public thorn in Trump’s paw for the next few years.

And nothing says ‘Resistance’ like a shrill, 70-year-old Grandmother and her pet monkey, Huma.

She still wears her well-traveled pantsuit.
Stick a fork in her!

Treasury sanctions Kuwait-based al Qaeda facilitator

He has “obtained passports for an AQ associate in Syria, provided medical supplies to an injured Syria-based AQ associate,” and “worked with an [Al Nusrah] associate to provide hundreds of thousands of dollars to [Al Nusrah] members in Syria.”

 

He has also “solicited donations” for Al Nusrah members, sending “approximately $20,000” to one of them in late 2015.

At some point in 2014, al-`Anizi “was appointed as AQ’s representative in Syria by AQ senior leadership.”

Treasury previously identified another jihadist, Abu Khalid al Suri, as “al Qaeda’s representative in Syria.” Al Suri, a senior figure in Ahrar al-Sham, was killed in Feb. 2014.

Treasury ties al-`Anizi to two other designated al Qaeda supporters, one of whom is his brother, Abdullah al-`Anizi.

“Prior to 2014,” Treasury says, al-`Anizi provided his sibling with “financial support” that was used “to fund terrorist operations.”

In 2015, Al-`Anizi “sought assistance from AQ financier” Sa’d al-Ka’bi “to facilitate the travel of AQ-associated individuals.” AlKa’bi has organized fundraising efforts for Al Nusrah in Qatar.

 

 

The US Treasury Department announced today that Muhammad Hadi al-`Anizi, who is “based in Kuwait,” has been designated as a terrorist. Al-`Anizi, a “terrorist facilitator, and financier,” has “provided extensive material and financial support” for both al Qaeda and its arm in Syria.

 

Today’s designation is the latest in a series targeting al Qaeda’s support network inside Kuwait.

Treasury traces Al-`Anizi’s career back at least a decade to 2007, as he allegedly supported al Qaeda at the time.

Much of his work since 2014 has been in service of al Qaeda’s Syrian branch, formerly known as Al Nusrah Front.

“From raising funds to facilitating the travel of terrorists, al-`Anizi is responsible for providing key financial and logistical support to Al Nusrah Front and Al Qaeda,” John E. Smith, the director of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), said in a statement. “The Treasury Department will continue to aggressively target Al Nusrah Front’s and Al Qaeda’s financial structures to further disrupt their ability to conduct terrorist attacks.”
