MARCO 2016!!!

So as expected Jeb is running but if truth be told he needs to put a 'D' next to his name and be done with it. And as videographer (NO attachment to the campaign) and RUBIO supporter Lissette Andrade points out in her amazing video, yesterday is truly over, and Jeb is indeed yesterday's news.

On June 12, Rasmussen released their nationwide poll showing an overwhelming majority of Americans support living in neighborhoods that allows them to own firearms (via Rasmussen) [emphasis mine]:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 22% of Likely U.S. Voters would feel safer living in a neighborhood where nobody was allowed to own a gun over one where they could have a gun for their own protection. Sixty-eight percent (68%) would feel safer in a neighborhood where guns are allowed, while 10% are not sure. …
The national survey of 977 Likely Voters was conducted on June 8-9, 2015 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
This appears to be part of a growing trend regarding gun rights and the Second Amendment. Gallup noted in November of 2014 that 63 percent of Americans believe a gun in the home makes it a safer place. In 2013, a Washington Post/ABC News poll reported the same thing, albeit the figure was 51 percent  supporting the notion that firearms makes homes safer; this included 51 percent of white, middle class women.

That figure dovetails with another segment of the Second Amendment debate, which is that women are the next frontier of the gun industry. Not only are women the fastest growing demographic in gun ownership; they’re lining up for their concealed carry permits across the country.

In April, Pew Research reported support for gun rights to be the highest in 25 years. Is it safe to assume that increased participation from women regarding the Second Amendment is partially responsible for that development?
All lives matter. Blue lives matter. One poster reads, “Not in the news. Today, 1 million cops flawlessly protected your streets.” Flawlessly? No, perfect only happens in cop shows where they can retake bad scenes. With only 2.5 officers for every 1,000 citizens, flawless isn’t possible.

Sadly, cases like Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, and Walter Scott have provided the media with a continuous stream of nightly cell phone videos of “police officers acting bad” and have given demonstrators a rallying cry for their protests.

But today, crime is at historic lows and most cities are safer than they have been in generations. This deserves more accolades than derision, but Chuck Wexler, executive director of the Police Executive Research Forum, confessed, “People aren’t buying our brand. If it was a product, we’d take it out of the marketplace…. We’ve lost the confidence of the American people.”

Hold bad cops responsible, but it’s time to let some of our good officers receive the coverage and honor they deserve. Jimmy Capra, former DEA Chief of Operations and founder of the Frontline Leadership Group, says what most of our finest officers feel:

“There’s been a number of high profile cases over the decades of law enforcement officers failing to uphold their oath of office by violating civil rights and in some cases, engaging in criminal conduct. When instances like this arise, it literally grieves the law enforcement community, and we’re wounded as a result of the loss of public trust.

Islamic jihadists tweet Pamela Geller’s home address, call for her murder
Islamic jihadists want to make an example of Pamela Geller, showing that they will enforce Sharia’s death penalty for blasphemy upon non-Muslims with impunity. U.S. authorities, in response, are busy kowtowing, instead of declaring that Pamela Geller will be protected and the freedom of speech defended. Capitulation is the order of the day — but […]

bosch fawstinFrom Denmark comes news of still more capitulation to violent intimidation in the service of the imposition of sharia blasphemy laws. Kudos to my friend and colleague in Denmark, Anders Gravers of SIAD and SION, for refusing to submit. He sent me this message:

Dear Pamela,
Yesterday late evening, I received an email from the party Fremskridtspartiet who should host the exhibition of your drawings where they forbid me to show the exhibition in their tent to the peoples meeting on Bornholm – a meeting where also Geert Wilders will attend and talk for Free Press Society DK.
They were pressed by the leadership of the peoples meeting to forbid me to show the exhibition in their tent. The chairman of the peoples meeting is Bornholms...
