The Power of Progressive Media

The main stream media (MSM) both news and entertainment, are the primary communication arm of the Progressive movement in the United States, spear headed by the Democrat Party.  And not satisfied to control the vast majority of the media, liberals continue to circulate petitions on social media to ban FOX News.  

Yet some people are surprised to learn that progressives also control sports media.  See Keith Olbermann and Bob Costas for details. 

Ray Rice has become a political pawn in a very dirty game of politics in this election year.

For knocking his fiance unconscious and dragging her out of an elevator by her hair, NFL running back Ray Rice received a two game suspension from Roger Goodell.  New Jersey Superior Court Judge Michael Donio and D.A. Jim McClain consulted the victim (Mrs. Rice) and agreed to put her husband in a New Jersey deferred adjudication/diversion program for first time offenders. This happens in tens of thousands of criminal cases every year in the United States. Like it or not, it’s what is usually done not the exception, in the majority of first time criminal offender cases. 

Some saw injustice but the left-wing main stream media saw a political opportunity to shore up the Democrat Party female voter base.  In the post Obama era, the Democrats are confident that they have over 90% of the African American votes locked up. Suburban women are the key to victory for both Parties in National elections.

It’s women who will determine the outcome of the November elections and nobody knows this more than Democrats who are in serious danger of losing control of the Senate.  So abortion rights and domestic abuse became core issues at the direction of the pollsters and professional “progressives” who control the Democrat Party purse strings.  Everything is always about money and politics. Make no mistake about it, the Democrats are the self appointed PC Police for a reason. 

The MSM has not missed an opportunity to keep the Ray Rice two game suspension, front and center in the hopes of growing the Democrat female base before the November elections.  So after TMZ paid for the release of the second elevator video of Ray Rice striking his fiance (now wife) and posted it at 1am this morning, the left wing media sprung into action.  Outrage was the order of the day.  

It doesn’t matter that Ray Rice had already admitted his crime and agreed to the terms of his probation/rehabilitation including speaking out against domestic violence, paying a fine and donating to women’s shelters. It doesn’t matter that Rice was serving his two game suspension and was scheduled to return to work next week. Neither Due Process nor any of the Bill of Rights matter to liberal fascists, unless they promote their progressive agenda. 

The media, being controlled by progressive hypocrites saw the TMZ tape as a political opportunity and sprung into action before the sun rose this morning.  I watched and listened, as did the NFL.  Before noon, Rice had been cut from the Baltimore Ravens and banned for life from the NFL.  

Liberals are celebrating and gloating over the fact that due process has been trumped for their political gain.

Rice was already punished by both the NFL and justice system for his crime.  We may not agree with the suspension/sentence but justice was done and his wife signed off on his deferred adjudication.  Mrs. Rice not the media was the victim of the crime.  Mr. Rice as the perpetrator and he took full responsibility and confessed to his crime to both the NFL and a New Jersey Judge.  

The world had already seen Mr. Rice dragging an apparently unconscious Mrs. Rice out of a casino elevator over and over again.  Mr. Rice admitted that he was responsible for the battery that rendered Mrs. Rice unconscious. 

The release of another video showing the single blow that knocked Mrs. Rice unconscious added nothing to the facts. Ray Rice had already admitted his guilt and been suspended by the NFL and adjudicated in a New Jersey court.

Can anyone articulate another reason besides politics why Ray Rice was fired and banned for life today?  In fact, the NFL had announced after the Rice two game suspension that future first time domestic violence violations would result in a 6 game suspension.  A second violation would result in a lifetime ban.  

So the NFL has taken one domestic violence incident and multiplied it by two so they could ban Rice for life? Politics is a dirty business.  And no politicians are dirtier than hypocrite progressives.   

You think that Mrs. Rice, the victim, is happy that the PC media has succeeded in destroying her husbands ability to earn a living.  At the very least, the NFL ban has cost Mrs. Rice half of the $21 $9.5 million that Ray Rice was contracted to be paid in the future.  I wonder if Mrs. Rice thinks this is justice?

Mississippi & Louisiana Back Second Amendment with Tax Free Weekend

If you’re a sportsman, this weekend is your holiday.

Mississippi’s inaugural tax-free holiday will begin Friday. It runs through Sunday.

The Legislature passed a law creating an annual tax-free weekend in September. The law went into effect on July 1. The holiday will be held annually on the first Friday of each September until midnight on the following Sunday.

Individual sales of firearms, ammunition, archery equipment, rifle scopes and certain hunting supplies will be exempt from taxes during the state’s inaugural tax holiday. Mississippi has a 7 percent sales tax.

Louisiana’s sportsman tax-free holiday is also this weekend.

“We’re very excited about this weekend,” said Tom Oaks, owner of Lonnie’s Sporting Goods in Corinth. “It’s going to be a great thing for both our customers and us.”

While a large turn-out is projected for the weekend, Oaks believes it would have been even more popular had it not been for the exclusions.

“I do think it’ll be big, but it could have been even bigger. Louisiana is in their fourth year of doing this and everything is included. Sportswear, hunting boots and other types of gear are excluded from ours.

“While I am definitely looking forward to it, it is not what it should have been,” Oaks said.

Oaks said he has advertised in Tennessee in hopes that more shoppers will be enticed to visit Lonnie’s and take advantage of the special opportunity.

“I’m thinking it’s gonna be crazy; it’s gonna be like Christmas time,” said Corey Campbell, manager of Scruggs Sporting Goods in Tupelo.

“Expecting a lot more bigger crowds,” Campbell said. “In the last week or two people have been in shopping, seeing what we had.”

While firearms are always a popular sell, retailers say ammunition will be their most popular item.

“Ammunition is gonna be a big one,” Alabama resident Calvin Kluesner said. “I suspect the closer we get to hunting season it will be like it has been the last few years. We won’t have any ammunition; it will be brought out pretty quick.”

A tax free weekend could make ammo much more affordable even for out-of-state people like Kluesner.

“Ammunition, scents, anything with hunting you know things that hunters are gonna start looking for pretty quick,” Kluesner said. “With the hunter tax free weekend I couldn’t think of another opportunity for hunters to get out and get those items that they are gonna need for hunting season.”

Gun Ownership in America 

A map, posted Saturday by Reddit user Ramesses_Deux, purports to show the 30 U.S. counties with the highest rates of gun-owning residents.

The state with the most gun-having counties appears to be a state that doesn’t have counties at all: Louisiana.

Six Louisiana parishes rank in the top 30, with Idaho, Utah and Vermont also boasting healthy figures.

The list, per Ramesses_Deux:

  1. Fairbanks borough, AK – 59.1%

  2. Tooele County, UT – 59.1%

  3. Nez Perce County, ID – 59.0%

  4. Armstrong County, PA – 57.6%

  5. Rapides Parish, LA – 52.8%

  6. Teller County, CO – 52.3%

  7. Darlington County, SC – 52.1%

  8. Franklin County, VT – 51.7%

  9. Randolph County, NC – 51.1%

  10. Canyon County, ID – 50.9%

  11. Anchorage Municipality, AK – 50.0%

  12. Laramie County, WY – 49.6%

  13. Davis County, UT – 48.8%

  14. Yellowstone County, MT – 48.7%

  15. Franklin County, PA – 48.5%

  16. Pennington County, SD – 48.5%

  17. Terrebonne Parish, LA – 47.9%

  18. Ouachita Parish, LA – 47.6%

  19. Florence County, SC – 47.6%

  20. Orange County, VT – 47.0%

  21. Calcasieu Parish, LA – 46.4%

  22. Weber County, UT – 46.3%

  23. Kanawha County, WV – 45.2%

  24. Ada County, ID – 45.0%

  25. Pulaski County, AR – 44.7%

  26. Minnehaha County, SD – 44.7%

  27. Westmoreland County, PA – 44.0%

  28. Pinal County, AZ – 43.6%

  29. St. Tammany Parish, LA – 42.5%

  30. Caddo Parish, LA – 42.2%

As the original poster noted, the map is based on a City Data list of the top 101 U.S. counties by firearm ownership, but City Data does not give the source for the list’s information.

Reddit users were quick to note the unexpected results on the map.

“Not a single one is in Texas, that’s a surprise,” one user wrote.

The first Texas county on City Data’s list is Harris County at No. 73, where apparently just over 30 percent of residents have a home firearm.

California Gun Control Laws Update

From Nick Leghorn, a self proclaimed gun nerd living and working in San Antonio, Texas. In his free time, he’s a competition shooter (USPSA, 3-gun and NRA High Power), aspiring pilot, and enjoys mixing statistics and science with firearms. Now on sale his latest book: Getting Started with Firearms 

Word comes to us this morning that there are mixed emotions among the People of the Gun in California. Three firearms-related pieces of legislation have been voted on and while one is now taking a permanent dirt nap, two more have advanced to the governor’s desk for his signature. A bill requiring registration of people wanting to buy ammunition (SB53) failed to pass, but the much-dreaded “Gun Violence Restraining Order” bill (AB 1014) got the Assembly’s approval. That law would allow anyone at any time to drop a dime on any gun owner and get the police to confiscate his or her firearms. Also heading to governor’s office is a bill requiring the registration of homemande firearms (SB 808) As a quick reminder of why AB 1014 is a dangerous idea …

There are already mechanisms in place for dealing with people who are a danger to themselves or others, namely the mental health system. The passage of 1014 is simply a means to more easily confiscate firearms from anyone the state of California deems objectionable, as the bar to obtain such orders is extremely low. All someone has to do is allege that a gun owner poses a significant danger of harming themselves or others and the judge will happily hand over one of these confiscation orders directing police to immediately bust down their door and take all their guns, but it doesn’t define what “significant danger” means. For all we know, simply owning a firearm might be sufficient cause for the courts in California.

The GVRO would also be shared with the Department of Justice, supposedly for inclusion in the NICS check system, thereby barring them from purchasing firearms. The bill states that if the order is removed the DoJ will be notified, but how quickly do you think that mechanism will work?

Oh, and here’s the real kicker: a gun violence restraining order doesn’t have a specified expiration date. It can continue for eternity, barring that person from ever purchasing or possessing guns again. Unless, that is, they petition the court to have their constitutional rights restored, and convince a judge otherwise. There is no trial by jury and no other recourse — the only way to get your rights back is on the opinion and decision of a single individual.

Obama Disgraces Himself and Our Country Again

Received this in an email today:

Two star Major General Harold Greene was killed in Afghanistan on August 8, 2014 while serving his country in pride for 34 years. He was the highest ranking officer in the military killed in action since the Vietnam war.  President Obama has not mentioned anything in regards to this highly decorated soldier yet he spoke highly of Robin Williams who committed suicide.
Major General Greene was buried August 14 in the Arlington National Cemetery. Neither the President, Vice President, Secretary of State nor Secretary of Defense attended the funeral. President Obama was on vacation, playing golf at Martha’s Vineyard . No flags were ordered to half mast yet they were for Whitney Houston who also committed suicide.  I find this very offensive and disrespectful to the veterans who have served our great country. But then again, why does this not surprise me.

But it’s much worse than the above.  Obama joined the liberal fascist progressive Media and his felonious Attorney General Eric the Racist Holder in vilifying a police officer and supporting a felon who tried to kill the officer.

This is on everyone who has voted for a Democrat in the last decade.  There is nothing more dangerous to the our national security than liberal fascist Progressives, aka: DEMOCRATS.

Here are the facts about Michael’s Brown’s past per his criminal record:

At 6’ 4” and 300 pounds, he is a walking weapon. To say he was unarmed, is simply not true.  When you attempt to take an officer’s gun, you are armed.   His record was sealed and the left was counting on it staying hidden.
