Good morning, kids. Thursday and I’m sure you’re all relieved to know that the massive amnesty sellout that John Cornyn has been promising is all a giant misunderstanding. No, really!
As the Senate voted to advance gun legislation on Tuesday night, which arose from Cornyn’s negotiations with Democrats, Cornyn told Sen. Alex Padilla (D-CA), “First guns, now it’s immigration.”
In response to Cornyn’s comment, Sinema said, “That’s right, we’re going to do it.”
The comment drew swift backlash from former Trump administration officials such as Andrew Surabian, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA), and House Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Jim Banks (IN).
“From selling out on gun control to selling out on amnesty in light speed,” Surabian said. . .
. . . After the backlash, Cornyn claimed that he was merely joking and that no immigration talks are expected to occur.
“The Democrats and their allies in the media really can’t take a joke. There’s no secret amnesty bill,” Cornyn told Breitbart News on Wednesday morning. His office confirmed to Breitbart News that the senator’s remark was made purely in jest.
Despite Cornyn’s claim, the Texas senator has called for negotiations that would provide amnesty for illegal aliens in the past.
That Cornyn. What a cut-up he is! Does he do kids, er, I mean does he do kids parties?! I’m only joking! See, I can be a comedian too. But John Cornyn isn’t just a master of refined comedy, he does tragedy like nobody’s business. Actually, more like horror:
Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) brushed off NRA opposition to his gun control package Wednesday, noting that the gun rights group cannot be allowed to “veto good public policy.”
Breitbart News reported that the Senate gun control package negotiated by Cornyn, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), and others, was put before the public on Tuesday. . .
. . . The NRA responded to the gun control by saying it “falls short at every level.”
They added, “This legislation can be abused to restrict lawful gun purchases, infringe upon the rights of law-abiding Americans, & use fed dollars to fund gun control measures being adopted by state & local politicians” . . .
. . . Mediaite.com reports that Cornyn spoke to MSNBC Wednesday and said, “We worked with the NRA to listen to their concerns. But in the end I think they simply — they have a membership and a business model that will not allow them to support any legislation. And so I understand where they’re coming from, but I think most people will not allow any outside group to veto good public policy.”
Forget the NRA itself and just focus on its membership and its mission. For the umpteenth frigging time since the sun first burned bright in our solar system, Mr. Cornyn:
WHAT PART OF “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND?
Not that I necessarily would own or let alone afford one, but if I wanted to own a 20mm cannon or even a hundred of them, I have the God-given right to do so. I could care fuck-all for the Firearms Control Act of 1934 and every other unconstitutional edict that has come afterward up to and including this travesty. And I don’t necessarily care if anyone else owns one either because, after everything I have seen and heard in just the past two years alone, I trust the ordinary American citizen more than I trust this government by a factor that approaches infinity. I’d say “google” but that word has tragically ironic meaning in this case, but I digress.
John Cornyn, like every other slimy tyrannical cancerous worm of this junta, has done us a favor by yet again revealing the illusion of the American two party system, give and take, advise and consent and all the rest we deluded ourselves into believing had been maintained and preserved since 1789. Gone goodbye, probably decades ago but for sure since 1/6/21. The only reason for gun control is to remove all opposition to tyrannical government. Period.
And if you think they’re going to stop at this, think again:
Murphy stated, “[F]or 30 years in Washington, the NRA got everything they wanted, and if the NRA opposed a bill, it was essentially dead letter. That’s not the case any longer and that is because, over time, citizens have organized, and especially in the wake of Uvalde, when senators went home, they heard loud and clear from their constituents that this time, doing nothing could not be an option. The fear and the anxiety was just palpable in this country. So, yes, the NRA is opposed to this bill and there are going to be somewhere between 15 and 20 Republican senators that are going to vote for it, which I think sort of paves the way for even more progress in the future, now that we have broken this logjam. That’s maybe the legacy of the bill in the long run.”
“More progress in the future.” Progress. Like progressively more odious controls not just on firearms but on speech, access to information, access to capital (the approaching complete collapse of our economy notwithstanding), access to food, access to medical care, access to our children and on and on and on. Now THAT is what I call “progressivism.” Progressively enslaving you mind, body and soul. Bit by bit or in one fell swoop.
In the end, though, nothing will change in our political environment. Today, the corrupt corporate media and Democrats will herald the law as breaking a “logjam,” the first gun “safety” law in 30 years. This is untrue. Congress has passed numerous gun laws. Thousands of gun laws and regulations exist in the United States. No right has ever been more regulated. And, in a few days, Democrats will return to accusing Republicans of supporting terrorism and abetting child murder. Senators like Murphy will be back to demanding bans on semi-automatic rifles and arguing for backdoor national registries. Within weeks, if not earlier, the media will tell us that the bill was a mere, tiny, first step in bringing the United States in line with other civilized countries. For one side, the “Bipartisan Safer Communities Act” will be a fleeting win, for the other, an incremental step in a crusade to limit national gun ownership.
In a way, the tyrants don’t necessarily need gun control legislation. The greatest gun control that exists is our own side’s absolute abhorrence of violence, our tolerance and our strong Judeo-Christian ethic as embodied in the 6th Commandment. Regardless of the restrictions put upon the 2-A, the fact remains that nearly perhaps as much as two thirds of this country, some 220 million people, are legally armed to the teeth and have acted accordingly and responsibly in keeping and bearing arms. Yet at what point are those 220 million of us going to “Break Glass, Pull Handle” as it were?
No, Moloch Garland, I am not here calling for armed insurrection, though all things considered, the reasons that led to Lexington and Concord were far less egregious than the depredations we have endured so far. And they’re only going to get worse. The very ethics, morality and Christian charity that courses through our hearts and minds inures us to such an extent to the slings and arrows as to almost be an Achilles heel. Really, how much more of this are we going to have to endure before someone or all of us collectively shout enough and take to heart the H.L. Mencken quote that Ace has at the top of the masthead of this site?
Maybe it’s logistics, or maybe we’re just not there yet.
Last Tuesday, BlazeTV host Steve Deace tweeted a harrowing message from a “January Sixther” that demonstrates how far what is happening regarding Jan. 6 really is from actual justice, and shows that it is all a dirty political game in which Democrats are victimizing decent people in order to prop up their ridiculous and baseless “insurrection” narrative.
“I am a husband and father who has zero criminal history,” this man wrote to Deace, “and I am looking at years in prison AFTER I took a plea. You may ask why would people take a plea if they are innocent? Innocent has nothing to do with this as my lawyer has told over and over again. This is payback. There are only a handful of representatives in DC that care about us. The vast majority couldn’t care less.”
The man explains: “I wasn’t violent, I didn’t break anything, I didn’t steal anything and that doesn’t matter. I lost my 6 figure income, friends, and my family is a wreck. I had the FBI in my home, I was brought before a judge in shackles. And I am a lucky one. I got to remain free till sentencing. So this is the country that I now live in. Where the powerful few can attack an elected president attempting to removing him for 4 years and where elections no longer matter.”
This is from a person who was unarmed, non-violent and merely showed up to DC to exercise his First Amendment right to free speech as a means of redressing grievance of his government. In this context, the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse looms large. At least, it would loom large if we had a just and stable law with political leaders who had the morals and ethics to abide by them.
We do not. And so, all bets are off. Dark days, my friends. Dark days.
