If you thought Democrats were ready to let go of their intrinsic partisan hatred of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, think again. House Judiciary Committee chairman Representative Jerry Nadler (D-CA) and Representative Henry Johnson (D-GA) just asked the National Archives to release more documents related to Kavanaugh’s service during the George W. Bush administration. “Chairman Nadler’s request is so far outside the scope of judicial ethics, it’s harassment,” said Representative Doug Collins, the committee’s ranking Republican, who went on to slam the move as a “fishing expedition.” Pelosi’s minions are already well beyond political precedent for going after a GOP nominee…after he’s been confirmed to the Court. This is a chicken that will come home to roost next year.
Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee asked the National Archives Tuesday to release documents from Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s service in the George W. Bush White House.
The request tracks Democratic promises to scrutinize Kavanaugh even after his confirmation to the Supreme Court.
“The Senate Judiciary Committee received only a small fraction of Justice Kavanaugh’s White House records before voting on his nomination,” Democratic Reps. Jerry Nadler of California and Henry Johnson of Georgia wrote in a letter to the Archives. Nadler chairs the Judiciary Committee, while Johnson leads a subcommittee that oversees the federal bench.
Gun sales are surging after the weekend mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, fueled by first-time buyers seeking pistols they can carry with them for protection.
The latest jump validated a big increase in purchases and background checks recorded by the FBI that show the four most recent months higher than the same months in 2018.
What’s more, the trend in the “National Instant Criminal Background Check System,” or NICS, is on a path to make 2018 the second biggest year since 2016, when gun owners and prospective gun owners filled stores before the presidential election that was expected to elect gun control advocate Hillary Rodham Clinton.
According to the latest NICS numbers just released, this year there have been nearly 16 million background checks, which are done for gun sales, applications for concealed carry permits and other gun-related legal issues.
As with past mass shootings, applications for concealed carry permits and interest in smaller pistols has increased. But the twin shooting has sparked even more interest.
We checked in with Hyatt Guns in Charlotte, N.C., one of the nation’s largest, and Marketing Director Justin Anderson explained the trend to us.
“While we have seen a measured rise in sale of certain tactical rifles and accessories this week, most customers are looking for concealed carry handguns,” Anderson said.
“Just this week we have fielded hundreds of calls from people that have never purchased a gun before. Our concealed carry training classes are filling up quickly. People are realizing that even a trip to Walmart isn’t safe these days and they want to be able to protect themselves. Remember that nothing stops a lunatic bent on carnage better than a law abiding citizen with a gun. I continue to urge people to get a gun, get trained with that gun, and carry, always,” he added.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly told lawmakers and aides in private conversations that he is open to endorsing extensive background checks in the wake of two mass shootings, prompting a warning from the National Rifle Association and concerns among White House aides, according to lawmakers and administration officials.
Trump, speaking to reporters Wednesday before visiting Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, where weekend shootings left 31 dead, said there “was great appetite for background checks” amid an outcry over government inaction in the face of repeated mass shootings.
Trump’s previous declarations of support for tougher gun controls, including after the deadly Parkland, Florida, shooting in February 2018, have foundered without a sustained push from the president and support from the NRA or Republican lawmakers. Even Trump’s advisers question how far he will go on any effort.
NRA chief executive Wayne LaPierre spoke with Trump on Tuesday after the president expressed support for a background check bill and told him it would not be popular among Trump’s supporters, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to freely discuss internal talks. LaPierre also argued against the bill’s merits, the officials said.
The NRA, which opposes the legislation sponsored by Sens. Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., and Joe Manchin III, D-W.Va., declined to comment.

Kathy Griffin claims she can’t get work following her photoshoot with a decapitated and bloody Trump head, but don’t let that fool you. Hollywood clearly still likes the idea of promoting violence against people who aren’t good and obedient leftists, because Universal Pictures is set to release a thriller called The Hunt on September 27, which features left-wing “elites” hunting Trump supporters for sport.
In the past few days we’ve been hearing a lot about how Donald Trump’s rhetoric is apparently to blame for the El Paso shooting, yet Hollywood apparently lacked the foresight to think that a movie promoting violence against “deplorables” might be in bad taste until after the shootings in El Paso and Dayton, as only now is Universal rethinking their promotional strategy for the film.
“Did anyone see what our ratf**ker-in-chief just did?” one character asks early in the screenplay for The Hunt, a Universal Pictures thriller set to open Sept. 27. Another responds: “At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”
They’re asking the IRS to several issues including Omar’s falsely filing her return with a man to whom she was not married, when she was legally married to another man alleged by some to be her brother.

President Trump: Did George Bush ever condemn President Obama after Sandy Hook. President Obama had 32 mass shootings during his reign. Not many people said Obama is out of Control. Mass shootings were happening before the President even thought about running for Pres.”
Sorry Barack. You don’t get a pass.
Not from President Trump.

As we previously highlighted, Connor Betts described him self as a “socialist,” praised Antifa and expressed support for Elizabeth Warren amongst many other indications that he was a far-left radical.
After NBC reporter Ben Collins falsely claimed that Betts was “more neutral” with his Twitter posts (despite openly supporting numerous left-wing personalities and news outlets), the truth is finally being admitted.
“A Twitter account that appears to belong to Dayton mass shooter Connor Betts retweeted extreme left-wing and anti-police posts, as well as tweets supporting Antifa, or anti-fascist, protesters,” reported CNN.
The Associated Press also ran a headline titled ‘Apparent Twitter feed shows shooter was leftist’.
Even Snopes, under the headline Was Dayton Mass Shooter a Self-Described ‘Pro-Satan Leftist Who Supported Elizabeth Warren’?, acknowledged this was “true”.
According to the shooter’s ex-girlfriend, the attack was almost certainly not pre-meditated, raising further speculation as to whether the massacre was a ‘revenge’ attack for the earlier El Paso shooting. Video:

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Monday he supports a national buyback program for so-called assault weapons, while acknowledging he is “going to come” for those types of firearms if elected president.
“So to gun owners out there who say well, a Biden administration means they’re going to come for my guns,” CNN’s Anderson Cooper said in an interview with Biden.
“Bingo,” the Democrat interjected, “you’re right if you have an assault weapon.”

The faded, creased photograph shows a 13-year-old Vallie Brown smiling shyly as she pulls back her hair in the back of a large van. She is wearing a white one-piece swimsuit and at first glance, she looks like she’s coming back from a sun-soaked day at the beach.
Looking at the picture of Brown, few people would suspect that the girl in the snapshot was living out of that van with her mother. That each night after it grew dark, she curled up on the backseats to sleep. That she wore that swimsuit under her clothes because she had to bathe in gas station bathrooms.
More than four decades later, and long before government data would ultimately confirm her suspicion, her experiences helped Brown to recognize that California’s housing crisis had taken another complicated turn – that the tenuous existence of her family in her youth had become a reality for far too many in the present.
“I recognized the signs,” Brown, now a San Francisco lawmaker, said. “When you see a van or a car with curtains up, or a towel rolled up in the window for privacy. People with their doors open, and you see a bunch of stuff in their car, or they’re airing out clothing.”
“They don’t consider themselves homeless,” she continued, adding that the line between living in a vehicle and being homeless is sometimes blurry.
All around the Bay Area, they hide in plain sight, the vehicles doubling as shelters. Some, as Brown described, are easily recognizable – an overstuffed RV with so many items strapped to the sides that the wheels appear sunken down, a van with a taped-up window, a camper so antiquated that it doesn’t seem operational. Others can pass as your neighbor’s car: a 2006 Lexus sedan in great condition, a late-model vehicle kept neat for Uber and Lyft rides.

President Trump called Monday for reforms at the intersection of mental health and gun laws — including so-called “red flag laws” to take guns from those deemed a public risk — in the wake of back-to-back mass shootings over the weekend that left at least 30 people dead.
“Our nation is overcome with shock, horror and sorrow,” Trump said, in solemn remarks from the White House. “We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil.”
In unequivocal terms, the president also condemned white supremacy, responding to reports that the shooter in El Paso wrote a racist manifesto.
“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy,” Trump said, standing beside Vice President Pence. “These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hatred has no place in America.”
The president notably did not call for explicit changes to gun laws beyond red flag laws, despite tweeting earlier Monday morning about the possibility of linking background check legislation to immigration reform. However, he said he is open and ready to listen to ideas “that will actually work.”
Kamala the Evil Cop strikes again.
LAS VEGAS — California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris gave details about her gun control proposals in the wake of the deadly El Paso, Texas shooting after she addressed union members at the AFSCME forum at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on Saturday.
When asked by the Washington Examiner if her plan would include legal gun owner databases or gun confiscation via law enforcement visits to residents who own banned firearms, she replied, “I’m actually prepared to take executive action to put in place rules that improve this situation.”
I see he had to go out of country to the BBC for the story.

Apparently I completely missed this as this happened mid July of this year.
The Hammond’s got rail roaded by the Obama administration and then it went down hill after they had already spent time in jail, were released and then ordered back to jail by a Federal judge to finish serving their entire sentence.
That was what sparked the Malhuer seige.
Their case is also tied into the Uranium 1 treachery that Hillary Clinton and several other Obama administration lackeys are eyeball deep in.
If you ever had any doubts about who’s side Trump is on and where his heart is, now you know.
President Donald Trump has pardoned two Oregon cattle ranchers whose sentence for arson led armed militiamen to seize control of a wildlife refuge in 2016.
Dwight Hammond, 76, and his son Steven Hammond, 49, were convicted in 2012 after a prescribed burn on their land spread to nearby public lands in 2001.
The pair served time in jail, but a judge later ruled that they must serve their full five-year sentence.
The ruling sparked anti-government protests that left one rancher dead.
“The Hammonds are devoted family men, respected contributors to their local community and have widespread support from their neighbours, local law enforcement and farmers and ranchers across the West,” the White House said in statement on Tuesday announcing their full pardon.
“Justice is overdue for Dwight and Steven Hammond, both of whom are entirely deserving of these Grants of Executive Clemency.”
The fact that this wasn’t all over our domestic news should also tell you who’s side they are on and where their interests lie.
Trump is reportedly planning to visit El Paso and Dayton,Ohio, the cities targeted in mass shooting attacks last weekend, on Wednesday.
Escobar made the comments on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, saying, “…he is not welcome here. He should not come here while we are in mourning.”
Excerpts: “Words have consequences. The president has made my community and my people the enemy. He has told the country that we are people to be feared, people to be hated.”
“From my perspective, he is not welcome here. He should not come here while we are in mourning. I would encourage the president’s staff members to have him do a little self-reflection. I would encourage them to show him his own words and his actions at the rallies.”
“I live in an extraordinary community. We are the epitome of goodness as a community. We welcome the stranger. We take care of the vulnerable. That is who El Paso is, and I am so proud to be a member of this community.”

Via Washington Examiner:
Former Vice President Joe Biden misstated the locations of mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, while speaking to donors at a high-dollar fundraiser in San Diego on Sunday night.
Biden, 76, mistakenly referred to the shootings as “the tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan the day before,” but later corrected himself, according to a pool report. Biden seemingly confused Houston for El Paso and Michigan for Ohio when speaking to donors about the shootings.
President Trump’s racism does not just offend our sensibilities; it fundamentally changes the character of this country. And it leads to violence.
This is the same guy who was asking for donations for the victims yesterday by soliciting people to go to his campaign page with a donation button for the campaign on it and campaign propaganda.
A young Arkie goes off to college. Half way through the semester,
having foolishly squandered all of his money on his girlfriend – he
“Dad,” he says, “You won’t believe what modern education is
developing! They actually have a program here at Hendrix that will
teach our dog, Ole’ Blue how to talk!”
“That’s amazing,” his Dad says. “How do I get Ole’ Blue in that program?”
“Just send him over here with $1,000” the young Arkie says, “and I’ll
get him in the course.” So, his Father sends the dog and $1,000.
About two-thirds of the way through the semester, the money again runs
out. The boy calls home.
“So, how’s Ole’ Blue doing son?” his Father asks.
“Awesome, Dad, he’s talking up a storm,” he says, “but you just won’t
believe this — they’ve had such good results they have started to
teach the animals how to read!”
“Read!?” says his Father, “No kidding! How do we get Blue in that program?”
“Just send $2,500, I’ll get him in the class.”
The money promptly arrives. The Arkie and his girlfriend are able to
buy enough marijuana to last the whole semester. But our hero has a
problem. At the end of the year, his Father will find out the dog can
neither talk, nor read. Even though he was always pretty much able to
lie his way out of trouble, the Arkie asked his girlfriend to help him
think of a really good lie to tell his Dad. She very quickly came up
with a plan for him.
So, she has him shoot the dog.
When he arrives home at the end of the year, his Father is all excited.
“Where’s Ole’ Blue? I just can’t wait to see him read something and talk!”
“Dad,” the boy says, “I have some grim news. Yesterday morning, just
before we left to drive home, Ole’ Blue was in the living room, kicked
back in the recliner, reading the Wall Street Journal, like he usually
“Then Ole’ Blue turned to me and asked, so – is your Daddy still
messing around with that little redhead who lives down the street?”
The Father went white and exclaimed, “I hope you shot that lying dog
before he talks to your Mother!”
“I sure did, Daddy!
“That’s my boy!”
The kid married his girlfriend, they both went on to law school, he
became Governor of Arkansas and President of the United States, and
you already know what a liar his girlfriend turned out to be!
