What Americans (and Canadians) Should Know About the Mexican Security Crisis

To say that the situation in Mexico is bad would be a gross understatement. Since the marine-lead capture of notorious drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman in Sinaloa back in 2016 and his subsequent extradition to the US in 2017, drug-related violence has skyrocketed in his native land.

Multiple cartels have risen up to take El Chapo’s place and the casualties have been insane. In the first two quarters of 2017 alone, more than 12,500 people have met their demise, either at the hands of the cartels or while caught in their cross-fire. That’s at least 2,000 dead on a monthly basis.

Black Lives Matter terrorists embrace lawfare

A terrorist group is suing the police for surveilling it.

The terrorists are the members of the Rockland County, New York, chapter of the violent, racist Black Lives Matter movement.

The New York Law Journal reports that Black Lives Matter filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the Clarkstown Police Department claiming, according to the report, that it “illegally surveilled its members, using a special intelligence unit and lumping in the group with terrorists and gangs.”


Our Right To Bear Arms Has Been Stolen And The Supreme Court Can Now Give It Back To Us

On August 28, 2017, the US Supreme Court Docketed No. 17-280 a RICO case against Governor Chris Christie and included as defendants: legislators, judges and police chiefs, which understandably is a major reward for the little man for the many battles he has fought to date; but, the war for our Constitutional right of self-protection is far from over, and your help by signing our petition below is now needed.

The two enemies of the people are criminals and the government, so let us tie the second down with the chairs of the Constitution so that the second will not become the legalized version of the first.

Perfect Murder

Israel has become a testing ground for jihad. The conquest of the West is being carried out according to the scheme tried out in the Holy Land

It was like deja vu: August 2017. Paris. A rocket launcher was found in Paris No-Go Zone suburb. A few weeks before the same launcher was found in Lyon, near the madrasah in the Muslim quarter.  The media is silent. Human rights defenders are against Islamophobia.

... Gaza ... Hamas ... Rocket launchers were found in mosques. ... The media is silent. Human rights defenders are against occupation.
Allusion? Obsession? May be…

By a coincidence of circumstances or Divine Providence (depending on your liking), Israel has become a testing ground of the lethal alliance - the “jihad” and lunatic progressives. Here, in the cradle of the Judeo-Christian civilization, the most disgusting methods of terror and its laundering, know-how of legitimate and even sacred violence were developed. Here the strategy of the “Red-Green” alliance was formed. This is the place where poisonous shoots appeared and went on to spread their spores all over the world.

“This Is Your FBI”

I borrowed the title for this essay from a very popular weekly radio show (over 400 episodes) of the exact same name, broadcast during some of my growing up years 1945-1953. Before television became the focus of our attention we listened to radio, usually as a family gathered around the one piece of furniture providing our in-home entertainment. The show cited above was a favorite because it was exciting and reinforced our teachings from other sources (parents, schools, churches, the friendly constable on the beat) about distinguishing right from wrong. We came to accept the FBI as the world’s leading crime-fighting organization. We applauded its existence and personnel, were assured it could do no wrong, and even wondered how we could join up. A seemingly impossible dream.

SAF, CALGUNS FILE PETITION FOR SCOTUS REVIEW OF SILVESTER CASE

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation and Calguns Foundation and two individual plaintiffs today filed a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court for certiorari in the case of Silvester, et.al. v. California Attorney General Zavier Becarra.

The case challenges California’s 10-day waiting period law and seeks to overturn a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that essentially forces a gun owner to endure another waiting period to purchase another firearm even though he is licensed to carry and has already passed a background check.

An Allahu Akbar August

“I thought mad dogs foamed at the mouth, galloped, leaped and lunged at throats, and I thought they did it in August.”To Kill a Mockingbird

In Roanoke, Virginia, Wasil Farooqui had attacked a couple with a knife while shouting, “Allahu Akbar”. His targets, a Muslim man and his non-Muslim girlfriend, had been swimming in the pool and were behaving immorally by Islamic standards. The Pakistani attacker had recently traveled to Turkey and was suspected of trying to join ISIS. His male victim had been cut “all over his body, including his neck.”

FEDERAL JUDGE DENIES CHICAGO MOTION IN SAF-BACKED GUN SHOP CASE

BELLEVUE, WA – A federal court judge in Illinois has denied a City of Chicago motion for summary judgment and refused to dismiss a case challenging a ban of firearms sales within city limits that is backed by the Second Amendment Foundation.

It is the latest in a string of court battles between Chicago and SAF, causing SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb to observe, “We’ve already beat Chicago three times, in the McDonald case before the Supreme Court, and both Ezell 1 and Ezell 2 before the federal court of appeals. I’m reminded of the folk song by Peter, Paul and Mary that asked, ‘When will they ever learn’?”

Make it official: Antifa is a movement of domestic terrorists

Some wise soul has created a White House petition to designate antifa a terrorist organization. As of this writing, 314,725 people, including this author, have signed. With the exception of perhaps the Muslim Brotherhood and whatever ISIS/al-Qaeda cells in operation in the U.S., there are few, if any, domestic groups more deserving of that title.

The petition says:

Terrorism is defined as “the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims”. This definition is the same definition used to declare ISIS and other groups, as terrorist organizations. AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States. It is time for the pentagon to be consistent in its actions – and just as they rightfully declared ISIS a terror group, they must declare AntiFa a terror group – on the grounds of principle, integrity, morality, and safety.


The militarization of the police is back on

It was trendy not long ago, and perhaps will still be trendy for some people, to express concern over the “militarization of the police.” Maybe it’s OK for cops to have sidearms and billy clubs, but not the type of equipment the military uses to win wars. Because if they had that equipment, so goes the thinking of leftists and paranoid libertarians, they will use it to wage war on us!

You will get no such sentiment from this column. Especially given the reality we see today of politically inspired riots - with police on the receiving end of bottle rockets and smoke bombs - I say equip the police with everything you can possibly give them.

D.C. REQUESTS EN BANC FEDERAL COURT HEARING ON SAF’S WRENN CCW CASE

BELLEVUE, WA – The District of Columbia has filed an appeal with the U.S. District Court of Appeals requesting an en banc hearing in a case recently won by the Second Amendment Foundation that struck down the “good reason” requirement for obtaining a concealed carry permit.

The case is Wrenn v. District of Columbia.

“The Second Amendment Foundation expected the City of Washington, DC to file this appeal in an attempt to try to overturn our court victory that said their virtual ban on the right to carry a firearm for self-protection was unconstitutional,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb.

We the Security People

We the “security people” fight for free and for freedom, and you think we simply choose “this kind of work”. We run towards the fire you watch on TV, and you wonder how crazy we are and how quickly “someone” will put out the flames.

There are among us these who guard your streets so your house is safe, and these who fight wars on battlefields so your home is still your home; and you call for “open borders” for you never guarded them. And once you’ve created danger, you feel entitled to our protection.

All Roads Lead to Jihad

The road to September 11 wended its way through this Spanish town where Mohammed Atta, the lead hijacker, met up with Ramzi bin al-Shibh, the former refugee to Germany and current Gitmo inmate, who had been serving as Osama bin Laden’s point man for the attacks that would kill thousands.

The hotel where Atta and Osama’s man met is a few blocks away from where the Muslim terrorists climbed out of their crashed car, drawing knives, axes and machetes, before a police officer working overtime to earn extra money shot most of them dead on the spot outside the Club Nautic.

Here’s a list of weapons anti-Trump rioters used to assault Phoenix police

I guess this is what we can look forward to for the foreseeable future. When the president of the United States decides to show up somewhere and say words, left-wingers will riot. And why not? The Washington Post is already building the narrative that conservatives who dare to say words are instigating the inevitable violence.

The mayor of Phoenix, who is a Democrat, asked Trump to cancel the Tuesday night rally - mainly out of partisan motivation but also because he knew this would probably happen. When a left-wing mob threatens to wreak havoc and assault your police, give them what they want in advance! That appears to be the new modus operandi of terrified public officials.

Phoenix Becomes Illegal Alien Sanctuary after Leftist Group Orders it in Private Meeting with Police

Arizona’s largest city recently became a sanctuary for illegal aliens after its police chief held a private meeting with a leftist group that demanded a change in immigration enforcement policies, records obtained by Judicial Watch show. The closed-door session between Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams and Will Goana, policy director for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Arizona, occurred just weeks before the Phoenix Police Department quietly implemented a new policy banning officers from contacting the feds after arresting an illegal alien and forbidding them from asking about suspects’ immigration status. The new order violates key provisions of a state law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court and leaves the city vulnerable to costly lawsuits.

TERROR AVERTED IN ROTTERDAM

Authorities in the Netherlands foiled an apparent Muslim terrorist plot to attack a concert venue in Rotterdam while an American rock band with an Islamic-sounding name was performing there.

Authorities shut down the scheduled performance by Los Angeles act Allah-Las at a 1,000-person capacity club called Maassilo. The band’s name has attracted some unwanted attention in the Muslim world. Band members say they selected the name Allah, Arabic for the Muslim deity, because they wanted something that sounded “holy.” Lead singer Miles Michaud said: “We get emails from Muslims, here in the U.S. and around the world, saying they’re offended, but that absolutely wasn’t our intention.”


Because it never gets old: Police blast Phoenix rioter in crotch with pepper-ball cannon

Oh, dear me.  When a fully-triggered leftist decides to kick a can of teargas back at the police during a riot, you can be fairly certain it’s not going to end well for him. He’s basically begging the police to fire back, so he can claim some sort of politically correct victim status.

Sometimes, the cops refrain from offering a response.  Other times, they do not. Last night in Phoenix, their ‘witty rejoinder’ came in the form of a “pepper-ball” - an anti-riot weapon that hits hard, breaks open, and disperses a cloud of eye-and-lung-irritating capsaicin powder.

The line from Ferguson to Charlottesville

The turmoil in Ferguson, Missouri back in 2014 was the antecedent of the recent riot in Charlottesville, Virginia. Both are examples of the street theater of “a new civil rights movement.”

In November-December 2014, the website American Thinker posted a series of nine articles that tracked the persons, groups, and political forces at play in the town of about 20,000 north of St. Louis, Missouri.

(The articles, from first to last, are posted here: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.)
