Everyone Gets A Gun: NRA Commentator Talks ‘Gun Required’ Zones, Shooting Tests

 

 

 

” In a new video entitled “Everyone Gets a Gun,” NRA commentator Billy Johnson this week dishes on his view of guns and education in America, comparing the two and drawing on some startling comparisons and thought-provoking contrasts in our nation’s schools as balanced against gun laws.

  In the four-minute video, which begins with a disclaimer that Johnson’s commentary “does not necessarily” reflect the larger organization’s views, Johnson proposes that schools be mandated to introduce a curriculum that forces kids to learn shooting skills, as part of his tongue-in-cheek suggestion for “gun required zones.” “

California Limits Full-Contact Youth Football Practices

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Gov. Jerry Brown announced Monday that he has signed a bill limiting full-contact football practices at middle and high schools in response to concerns about concussions, even as many teams already comply with the rules.

  Brown approved the bill, AB 2127, with the support of medical groups and the California Interscholastic Federation, which oversees California high school athletics.

  Assemblyman Ken Cooley, D-Rancho Cordova, said his bill is motivated by parents worried about the risks associated with concussions, which include long-term brain damage and early onset dementia.

  Under the legislation taking effect in 2015, drills involving game-speed tackling are prohibited in the offseason. They are limited to 90-minute sessions twice a week the rest of the year. The rules apply to public, private and charter schools.”

Fed Appeals Court Panel Says Most Obamacare Subsidies Illegal

 

 

Obamacare Subsidies Illegal

 

 

 

” In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal.

  The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. The ruling relied on a close reading of the Affordable Care Act.”

Texas State Senator: 100,000 Illegal Immigrant Gang Members In State

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Hours before Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced he would send National Guard troops to the border, Texas state Senator Dan Patrick said there are at least 100,000 illegal immigrant gang members in the state. 

  On Monday’s The Laura Ingraham Show, Patrick, who is also the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, said from 2008 to 2012, 143,000 illegal immigrant criminals were arrested and jailed in Texas. He said these were “hardened criminals, gang members, and other criminals that we identified as being in Texas illegally.” 

” We charged them with 447,000 crimes, a half-million crimes in four years, just in Texas, including over 5,000 rapes and 2,000 murders,” Patrick said. “We estimate we have 100,000 gang members here illegally.” “

Crossings Trigger Anti-Immigration Rallies

 

 

 

 

” The influx of thousands of Central Americans into the U.S. has energized anti-illegal immigration activists who organized rallies across the country in recent days.

How can we afford to take care of other countries’ poor? Americans are going hungry without jobs and no one is attending to them,” said Herbert Baker, a chiropractor standing atop a highway overpass in Los Angeles hoisting an American flag and a sign that read “Stop Illegal Immigration.”

The Los Angeles protest was among 40 in southern California and hundreds held in the U.S., part of a national call for a crackdown on illegal immigration coordinated by a coalition of anti-illegal immigrant groups. Some rallies, including those in Little Rock, Ark., Dallas and Philadelphia, drew counter protesters.”

 

 

    In typical Obama/Liberal fashion the “answer” lies in spending … spending money that we don’t have to care for people we didn’t invite … Money that our veterans don’t get , only potential democratic constituents need apply … Corruption everywhere you look from our “most open , honest and transparent” administration .

 

 

” President Obama has asked Congress for $3.7 billion in emergency spending to respond to the crisis and lawmakers are weighing whether to amend a 2008 law to expedite deportations. The House and Senate are moving forward on separate bills with no clear deal in sight. On Friday, Mr. Obama is scheduled to meet at the White House with the presidents of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador to discuss ways to stanch the flow.

  In Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, the main entry point, federal officials and aid workers have reported that fewer than 100 minors a day were apprehended by border agents last week, compared with as many as 300 a day recently.”

Daytona Beach Father Beats Man He Found Raping Son, Police Say

 

 

 

 

 

” A Daytona Beach father who walked in on a man sexually battering his 11-year-old son Friday said he did what he had a right to do when he beat the suspect unconscious, leaving him in a puddle of blood, according to a 9-1-1 call.

“ I just walked in on a grown man molesting …,” the upset father told a dispatcher. “And I got him in a bloody puddle for you officer.”

  The father was acting like a dad, said Daytona Beach police Chief Mike Chitwood.

  Police responding to the Daytona Beach home at 1:07 a.m. Friday after the father called them found Raymond Frolander, 18, of Holly Hill lying motionless on the living room floor. Frolander had several knots on his face and was bleeding from the mouth, an arrest report states.”

The father did what any good father would do , and Frolander should thank God he’s not dead …

‘Six Californias’ Plan May Make 2016 Ballot

 

 

 

 

” A plan backed by venture capitalist Tim Draper to split California into six states has gained enough signatures to make the November 2016 ballot, the plan’s backers say.

  A Twitter account belonging to the nonprofit Six Californias tweeted on Monday that “#SixCalifornias will be submitting signatures in Sacramento tomorrow for placement on the November 2016 ballot. Stay tuned for coverage!”

The six carved out states would look like this:

 

  • Jefferson: The northern part of the state, including Humboldt and Mendocino counties.
  • North California: The wine country counties of Sonoma and Napa, as well as the Sierra Nevada region.
  • Silicon Valley: Including San Francisco, San Jose and most of what’s considered the San Francisco Bay Area.
  • Central California: The vast central valley farm region, including Tulare and Fresno counties.
  • West California: Including Santa Barbara and Los Angeles.
  • South California: Including what’s called the Inland Empire of San Bernadino and Riverside, plus San Diego.

  The plan has met with resistance from California’s Democratic majority, and a Field Poll found 59% of Californians surveyed were against the plan, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

  But interest in the plan has been strong enough to send Draper and his campaigners to Sacramento — for now, the one and only capital of California. They’ll reveal the exact number of signatures they received on Tuesday in a news conference, according to the Chronicle.”

Obama Heads To Texas With No Plans To Visit Border

 

 

 

 

” For President Barack Obama, the humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border is increasingly becoming a political liability, giving Republicans a fresh opportunity to question his administration’s competence and complicating the debate over the nation’s fractured immigration laws.

  Still, Obama is resisting calls to visit the border during his two-day fundraising trip to Texas, where he arrives late Wednesday afternoon. Instead, Obama will hold a meeting hundreds of miles away in Dallas to discuss the crisis with faith leaders and Texas officials, including Republican Gov. Rick Perry.

  Obama’s trip comes one day after he asked Congress for $3.7 billion in emergency spending to get more resources to the border.”

 

 

* We use the scare quotes around the word “border” because the “border” essentially no longer exists . If the theoretical line in the sand can be crossed with impunity then it is not a “border” which is defined as:

” the line that separates one country, state, province, etc., from another; frontier line: You cannot cross the   border without a visa.”

   Even members of his own party are starting to question his desire to deal with the “humanitarian” crisis of his own creation …

” Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, raised the prospect that Obama’s failure to take a firsthand look at the border crisis could be akin to former President George W. Bush viewing the devastation of Hurricane Katrina from the air instead of on the ground.”

    The only problem with Rep Cuellar’s comparison of the illegal immigrant crisis with Bush’s Katrina moment is the fact that in Bush’s case the press had a desire to embarrass the administration whilein Obama’s case they are doing everything within their power to protect him from the same sort of scrutiny .

Anti-Government Citizen Militia Groups Want To ‘Secure The Border’ In Texas

 

 

 

 

” A slew of anti-government groups — many of which participated in the standoff at Cliven Bundy’s Nevada ranch — are recruiting armed volunteers to travel to the Texas-Mexico border as a citizen militia to participate in “Operation Secure Our Border,” which aims to stop the surge of immigrants into the country.”

 

   How did standing up for the Constitution mutate into an anti-government stance ? We of the Patriot/Tea Party movement aren’t “anti-government” … we are anti-corrupt government and anti-Statist government . That puts us in the fine company of our Founders and at odds with the likes of the MSM and Obama/Statists .

 

  The groups, who identify themselves as “Patriots,” “Oathkeepers” and “Three Percenters,” are using social media, blogs and a 24-hour hotline to recruit and mobilize volunteers that will travel to Laredo, carry firearms and attempt to assist law enforcement agencies on the border.

  However, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said they do not “endorse or support any private group or organization from taking matters into their own hands as it could have disastrous personal and public safety consequences.”

 

   There is no surprise that ICE and the Border Patrol do not “endorse” private efforts to secure the border , after all how would it look if private efforts turned out to be more effective than the elaborately funded government entities charged with the task ?

   People might start to ask why we are paying staggering sums of money to fund organizations that are complete failures and if they really begin to question that there is certainly no reason to consider only border security .

Flying A Drone Through Fireworks May Land You In Prison

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Every Fourth of July there are stories about idiotic things that people do while celebrating Independence Day.  This year’s story is probably going to be about drones and fireworks.

  The proliferation of consumer drones (also known as quadcopters or remote controlled helicopters) has generated countless news stories about irresponsible things that people do with their new toys.  Those stories have prompted many to call for new laws, but most of the unsafe conduct we witness occurring with these toys is already arguably covered by existing laws.  Consider the video posted by Jos Stiglingh, that’s sure to give amateur drone operators a few bad ideas.  The video, filmed with a GoPro Hero 3 Silver, shows the view from a DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter flying in and above a fireworks show.”

 

 

    There is no doubt that the video afforded by the drone flight through the fireworks is spectacular and there is certainly a measure of risk to the drone from the exploding shells , but having worked for several professional fireworks companies I must state the the tone that the Forbes author adopts towards the end of his piece is a bit alarmist as regards the danger posed to the pyro-technicians and spectators …

 

 

” There’s no doubt that the HD video is stunning.  It’s also dangerous and likely unlawful (at least if it occurred in the United States).  The flight is unsafe as the existence of the drone in the airspace above the fireworks display creates an increased risk of hazardous debris (from the fireworks or the drone) falling into spectator areas.  There is also the remote possibility that a firework colliding with a drone may divert the pyrotechnic downward into spectator areas, causing it to detonate where it otherwise should not.  The drone in this video made it safely through the fireworks, but put a few more drones in the air and you’re also bound to have a mid-air collision.  All of these factors show how this operation was unsafe.  While this drone operator escaped getting hit with a firework, there’s no way he could have planned that.  Avoiding the explosions was luck, not skill. “

 

 

   First and foremost one must consider that these grand pyrotechnic displays are not shot straight up , nor are they aimed to explode over the tops of the audience’s heads . That would be ludicrous in the extreme . All displays are set up with the express understanding that any given lift charge could fail thus enabling a product of anywhere from 3″ to 12″ to explode at any altitude , including in the tube itself . For that very reason all displays are set up far from the audience and aimed over an area , often water , that is uninhabited .

    All fireworks displays are carefully set up with the idea that dangerous debris will fail from the sky and an obliterated 5 pound drone is unlikely to cause any harm to anything other than the owner’s bank account . Just another example of State control , this time propagated with the help of Forbes .

Feds Booed In California City After Standoff On Illegals

 

 

 

 

 

 

” An overflow crowd in a Southern California community where protesters turned back Homeland Security busloads of immigrants gave a harsh reception to federal officials behind the decision to bring them to Murrieta in the first place.

  Local politicians calling for secure borders proved far more popular with the crowd Wednesday night.

” Send them back! Send the back!” the special-meeting crowd chanted, shouting down Chief Border Patrol Agent Paul Beeson after he took responsibility for transferring the Central American children and families to Murrieta from Texas, where the numbers are too much for facilities to handle.

  On Tuesday, the buses were rerouted an hour south to San Diego after they were met with flag-waving protesters in Murrieta.

  The Wednesday night crowd, gathered at a high school auditorium that seats 750 in the desert city of 100,000 people, groaned when Beeson said four of the immigrants had to be hospitalized, two with scabies and two with fevers.

  And Beeson conceded that he did not know where Tuesday’s immigrants nor several more waves slated to arrive from Texas in coming days will end up.”

 

 

   Here’s an idea how we get can get the illegals out of our country: All we need to do is put a few guns on the buses and have them accidentally cross the Mexican border . That way the Mexican government can imprison them indefinitely just as they have done to our Marine , Andrew Tahmooressi .

A Day Of Victory At The Supreme Court

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” This morning, the Supreme Court announced two unanimous decisions, both of them defeats for the Obama Administration and victories for the Constitution.

  In the first, Canning v. NLRB, the Supreme Court struck down President Obama’s “recess appointments” to the powerful National Labor Relations Board. The question was simple: Was the Senate in recess or in session when it was in a so-called “pro forma” session. The Supreme Court’s conclusion was sensible:

  In our view, however, the pro forma sessions count as sessions, not as periods of recess. We hold that, for purposes of the Recess Appointments Clause, the Senate is in session when it says it is, provided that, under its own rules, it retains the capacity to transact Senate business. The Senate met that standard here.

  We represented the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, in the case, filing a brief on his behalf. The case represented a key victory for the Speaker and the House itself, since the House has a high degree of control over even the Senate’s schedule. 

  The bottom line is simple: The President will not be able to circumvent the Senate’s “advise and consent” through recess appointments without the consent of both houses of Congress.

  Today is a good day for the separation of powers.

  It is also a good day for free speech and the pro-life movement.

  In the day’s second decision, McCullen v. Coakley, the Court struck down Massachusetts’ buffer zone law, a law that prohibited any person within a 35-foot radius of an abortion clinic entrance or driveway from approaching another person “for the purpose of passing a leaflet or handbill to, displaying a sign to, or engaging in oral protest, education, or counseling with such other person.”

  Justice Roberts wrote the opinion for the Court, and once again the Court’s reasoning was sensible and constitutionally sound:

  Petitioners wish to converse with their fellow citizens about an important subject on the public streets and sidewalks—sites that have hosted discussions about the issues of the day throughout history. Respondents assert undeniably significant interests in maintaining public safety on those same streets and sidewalks, as well as in preserving access to adjacent healthcare facilities. But here the Commonwealth has pursued those interests by the extreme step of closing a substantial portion of a traditional public forum to all speakers. It has done so without seriously addressing the problem through alternatives that leave the forum open for its time-honored purposes. The Commonwealth may not do that consistent with the First Amendment.

  The ACLJ filed an amicus brief in support of Eleanor McCullen’s free speech rights while the Obama Administration supported censorship.

  This case is a watershed in the movement to undo the infamous “abortion distortion,” the judicial distortion in free-speech jurisprudence that effectively denies full free speech rights to the pro-life movement. At the ACLJ we have a decades-long history of battling for pro-life free speech at the Supreme Court, and today’s victory sends an important message.

  The Obama Administration and pro-abortion state governments are on notice: pro-life speech is free speech, fully protected by the First Amendment. The pro-life movement is now more free to take its life-saving message to the people who need to hear it the most.”

 

 

 

   Add these victories to the recent decision voiding the practice of warrantless cell phone searches and you have a great week for liberty from the Supreme Court .

The Map With Only 38 States

 

 

 

” In 1973, California State University geography professor George Etzel Pearcy suggested that the U.S. redraw its antiquated state boundaries and narrow the overall number of states to 38.

  Pearcy’s proposed state lines were drawn in less-populated areas, isolating large cities and reducing their number within each state. He argued that if there were fewer cities vying for a state’s tax dollars, more money would be available for projects that would benefit all citizens.

  Because the current states were being chopped up beyond recognition, part of his plan included renaming the new states by referencing natural geologic features or the region’s cultural history.

  While he did have a rather staunch support network—economists, geographers, and even a few politicians argued that Pearcy’s plan might be crazy enough to work—the proposal lost steam in Washington. Imagine all the work that would have to be done to enact Pearcy’s plan: re-surveying the land, setting up new voter districts, new taxation infrastructure—basically starting the whole country over. It’s easy to see why the government balked (though that doesn’t mean it was a bad idea).”

Supreme Court Bans Warrantless Cell Phone Searches, Updates Privacy Laws

 

 

 

 

” The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that police must obtain warrants before snooping through people’s cellphones, delivering a unanimous decision that begins to update legal understanding of privacy rules to accommodate 21st-century technology.

  Police agencies argued that searching through data on cellphones was no different from asking someone to turn out his pockets, but the justices rejected that, saying a cellphone holds the most personal and intimate details of someone’s life and falls squarely within the Fourth Amendment’s privacy protections.

“ The fact that technology now allows an individual to carry such information in his hand does not make the information any less worthy of the protection for which the Founders fought,” Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote in the unanimous opinion. “Our answer to the question of what police must do before searching a cell phone seized incident to an arrest is accordingly simple — get a warrant.”

  The justices even said police cannot check a cellphone’s call log because it could contain more information than phone numbers, and perusing the call log is a violation of privacy that can be justified only with a court-issued warrant.

  Privacy advocates, meanwhile, said the ruling should ignite a broader rethinking of protections at a time when Americans are putting more personal information online.”

Trey Gowdy’s Not Having It: IRS Head Gets Cute About ‘Lost’ Emails & Has the Grin Wiped Off His Face

 

 

 

 

 

” During a rare Monday night hearing, House Republicans hammered embattled IRS commissioner John Koskinen over the “lost” Lois Lerner emails and over his continued insistence that there was no criminal wrongdoing in their coincidental disappearance.

  While, as to be expected, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) repeatedly challenged Koskinen, for instance, when he demanded that he cite a particular statute or statutes (law, viz.) on which to base his claim that no criminal wrongdoing occurred. When the commissioner replied, “you can rely on common sense,” Gowdy went off:

“ Common sense? Instead of a criminal code, you wanna rely on common sense? You can shake your head all you want to commissioner; you have said today that there’s no evidence of criminal wrongdoing and I’m asking you what criminal statutes you have reviewed to reach that conclusion?”

  Koskinen finally conceded: “I have reviewed no criminal statutes.”

  Ironically, the commissioner also insisted that outdated technology was to blame and that it would cost the IRS $10-30 million to update its systems.

  In response, Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) reminded Koskinen that the IRS paid $89 million in bonuses last year, including $1 million to employees who owed back taxes. Not a good day for the defiant commissioner of the IRS.”

 

 

     John Koskinen is the epitome of the smug , arrogant , elitist bureaucrat . It is a pleasure to see him squirm under the wrathful ire of Rep Gowdy even though there seems to be no new info forthcoming from any of these hearings .

Texas Takes Border Security Into Own Hands Because Of Federal Inaction

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Texas, the second largest state by population and land mass in the nation has decided to take state funded action to protect its citizens from the multitude of illegal immigrants swarming over the border. The federal government’s inaction on border control poses a huge risk to the safety and security of not just Texans, but to all Americans. Texas has had enough of the ‘hurry up and wait” attitude adopted by not just the Obama administration but by the politicians in Washington. The priorities of these politicians are skewed by political ambition and party line agendas that do little to serve the nation but often serve to get them re-elected. If current trends are any indication however, these so-called public servants may be in for a shake-up come November 2014.

  In a recent joint statement by Texas Governor Rick Perry, Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and state House Speaker Joe Straus, Perry said that the state cannot “afford to wait for Washington” and he has authorized a “surge” in border patrol activities. Perry further stated that his administration (ostensibly as opposed to the Obama administration) will not “sit idly by while the safety and security of citizens are threatened.” To facilitate this Governor Perry has authorized the Department of Public Safety to spend $1.3 million in emergency spending a week to further secure the Texas border by preventing illegal crossings and apprehending illegal immigrants who do successfully slip through security.

  The surge includes air support and boots on the ground and comes on the heels of the tremendous influx of not only illegal immigrants from Mexico, but also those who have come from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras hoping to cash in on the Obama administration’s reputation for extreme leniency. These illegal immigrants are referred to by border patrol as “Other than Mexican” (OTM). Currently, there are three U.S. military bases overflowing with children who have been trafficked to the U.S. by families hoping to follow and this has created a humanitarian crisis with no practical solution in sight. “

  The robber was shot and killed by the woman after he allegedly threatened her with a knife.

Judge Who Sentenced Saddam Hussein To Death Has Been Executed By ISIS, Local Media Reports

 

 

 

 

 

” Back in 2006, after the second US invasion of Iraq culminated if not with the discovery of the WMDs (which were the pretext for the invasion in the first place), but the unearthing (literally) and kangaroo court trial of Saddam Hussein, the US was quick to announce “mission accomplished.” Recent events have made a mockery of that claim, however what is truly the straw that broke the back of poetic justice, to mix metaphors, are reports from local media that as part of its blitz-campaign to take over northern Iraq, ISIS found and the promptly executed Rauf Rashid Abd al-Rahman, the judge who sentenced Saddam to death: a death which to many was the crowning moment of the second US invasion of Iraq, and the confirmation of successful US foreign policy. 

   It goes without saying that if true, the murder of the man who indirectly did the US bidding in slamming the book shut on the Saddam regime (and with it US claims of Iraqi “liberation”) and was responsible for Saddam’s death, means the last “Mission Accomplished” posted can now be safely taken down.”

Sheriff Describes ‘Police Corruption’ After Deputy Arrest

 

 

SWAT Sex Scandal

 

” A King County sheriff’s deputy was arrested Thursday for investigation of promoting prostitution, theft and drugs.

  But the problems extend far beyond the lone deputy, Sheriff John Urquhart said at a Thursday afternoon news briefing.

  Members of the SWAT team were aware that the deputy, Darrion Keith Holiwell, was taking brass shells from a gun range where SWAT practices and sold them. Money went to a slush fund that was said to be affiliated with the Sheriff’s Office – but Urquhart said Holiwell kept that fund secret from commanders.

  There is also evidence that Holiwell sold steroids to members of the SWAT team. But the Sheriff’s Office can’t say exactly how many deputies may be steroid users – it’s against the law for them to test.”

9 Unbelievably Absurd Acronyms the FBI Is Tracking On Twitter, Or 9UAATFBIITOT

 

 

FBI Twitterspeak

 

 

 

 

 

” In this week’s stranger news, an 83-page document was procured by self-proclaimed “FOI Geek” Jason Smathers under the Freedom of Information Act. The document, created by the FBI’s Directorate of Intelligence Research Support Unit, features an “extensive—but far from exhaustive—list of shorthand and acronyms used on Twitter and other social media venues.”

  The list contains more than 2,800 entries (you read that correctly) which the FBI asserts you “should find useful in your work or for keeping up with your children and/or grandchildren.” In case your child decides to tell you, “HGH”, during in the middle of a conversation, fret not, for now you can just pull out your handy dandy 83-page guide to internet slang and see that they’re obviously telling you “Haters Gonna Hate.” Duh.

  With over 2,800 abbreviations on the list, there are understandably some strange ones which, based on a quick internet search, have literally never even been used. Imagine employing any of these in daily conversation, not to mention trying to memorize them:

From Reason:

 

  • IOKIYAR, “It’s okay if you’re a Republican
  • ALOTBSOL, “Always look on the bright side of life”

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • BTDTGTTAWIO, “been there, done that, got the T-shirt and wore it out”
  • EOTWAWKI, “end of the world as we know it”

 

 

 

 

 

  • HCDAJFU, “He could do a job for us”
  • IITYWTMWYBMAD, “If I tell you what it means will you buy me a drink?”
  • LFBBEG, “Looking for big bad evil guy”
  • KTBSPA, “Keep the backstreet pride alive”
  • PMIGBOM, “Put mind in gear before opening mouth”

 

 

     Our tax dollars at work … Jeez . One would think that with all the threats to our way of life from those evil “right-wing extremists” , the need to change illegal’s diapers , arming terrorists and such that the Feds would have enough to do without spending a fortune studying social media acronyms … but one would be wrong , wouldn’t one ? 

   In Obama’s Amerika no job is to small for the hand of big government .

Mexican Sex Slaves Pour Over Our Undefended Southern Border From Pimp City

 

 

 

 

 

” A town of just ten thousand people, Tenancingo has thrived for the past half-century thanks to a lucrative family business. Grandfathers passed the trade down to fathers, and fathers in turn, to their sons — that business is sex trafficking.”

 

 

Pimp City

 

 

” But the prostitutes involved in their scheme aren’t willing participants. Many are from rural and indigenous villages throughout Mexico, and are kidnapped, trapped, and seduced in a trade the sons of Tenancingo have been perfecting for decades.”

 

 

   This is a true war on women and it is actively aided and abetted by the Obama administration’s failure to secure our souther border .

 

” Once in the U.S, the girls are forced to see as many as 60 clients a day. These men, typically called “Johns,” pay about $35 for 15 minutes of sex, according to Sanctuary for Families, a nonprofit advocacy group for sex-trafficking victims. The money is then wired back to Tenancingo, where mansions with lavish courtyards and tawdry cupolas line the streets.”

” There’s a lot of debate around just how many sex slaves there are in the U.S. and how many are from this small city. Whether Tenancingo sends dozens, hundreds, or thousands of women a year to the U.S., there’s undoubtedly one place where many of them are sent: Queens, N.Y.”

 

 

    Putting aside the issues of national security , drug smuggling and illegal alien invasion , the proliferation of human trafficking over the US-Mexican border should be reason enough all by itself to secure said border and aid in stopping this real war on women , unless of course , you are a hypocritical Dem who would prefer to gain political advantage by blasting your opponents across the aisle as the “real perpetrators” of the war on women .
