BAM! Dana Loesch FIRES BACK against Feinstein’s latest gun control push…and she’s on the MONEY!

13 hours 17 min ago

On Friday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said she would be introducing legislation that would up the age requirements for purchasing a rifle from 18 to 21 years old.

I plan to introduce a bill to require ALL firearms purchases from gun dealers be restricted to individuals who are at least 21 years old. If you can’t buy a handgun or a bottle of beer, you shouldn’t be able to buy an AR-15.

— Sen Dianne Feinstein (@SenFeinstein) February 17, 2018

Except NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch had a marvel idea instead of Feinstein’s proposal.

You could demand that states fully comply with reporting qualifying convictions and mental adjudications to NICS, which you’ve never done. Only 38 report less than 80%. Also, what does this do to enlistment? https://t.co/0LA2vlsEla

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 19, 2018

That would make too much sense.

How about prosecuting felons who attempt and fail background checks ?
Dems letting felons vote are shooting themselves in the foot and throwing the rest of us under the bus along with them

— Dave Vee (@Vlabsllc) February 19, 2018

There’s an idea.

But forcing law enforcement agencies & mental health professional to follow CURRENT laws on NICS background checks, and getting the FBI to actually DO SOMETHING with detailed warnings about potential murderers, isn't as headline grabbing as calling for NEW/MORE gun regulations.

— Bryan Lee (@bryaninbigd) February 19, 2018

TRUTH.

@SenFeinstein You make my head hurt. Your suggestions with regard to weapons serve only to deprive good people of their God given right to defense.
A huge number of our soldiers ages 17-20 use weapons every day.
ROOT CAUSE is mental illness and no support for At Risk Kids.

— APO_AE_09173 (@APO_AE_01973) February 19, 2018

EXACTLY.

Apparently it’s okay to give these “kids” firearms if they defend us in the Military but not for everyday use.

What does raising the age solve when there is a clear lack of enforcement of laws already on the books? Did making the drinking age 21 stop 18-20 year olds from abusing alcohol?The problem isn't age, NICS system exists for a reason-make states conform to it.

— Ashley (@Renegaderunner2) February 19, 2018

They don’t think about enforcing laws. Their answer to everything is passing MORE laws.

MAKE. THIS. HAPPEN: Mr. T, future Olympics curling star? #CurlingIsCoolFool

Sun, 02/18/2018 - 22:42

Mr. T, who needs no introduction, wants to give curling a try. You know, the Olympic sport played on ice with brooms and a stone:

I like curling, it’s less wear and tear on the body. I wrestled, boxed, and studied martial arts. I have nothing else to prove. Therefore I choose curling. #curlingiscoolfool

At the very least, if Mr. T doesn’t make the Olympic team, he should get hired as a color commentator for the broadcast:

REPORT: Former Trump aide Rick Gates to plead guilty to ‘fraud-related charges,’ will testify against Manafort

Sun, 02/18/2018 - 21:43

Former aide to Donald Trump Rick Gates will reportedly plead guilty to “fraud-related” charges and testify against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

Former Trump aide Rick Gates will plead guilty to fraud-related charges within days and has agreed to testify against Paul Manafort, sources say https://t.co/tnHDwRvFKy

— Los Angeles Times (@latimes) February 18, 2018

The L.A. Times has the story:

A former top aide to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign will plead guilty to fraud-related charges within days – and has made clear to prosecutors that he would testify against Paul J. Manafort Jr., the lawyer-lobbyist who once managed the campaign.

The change of heart by Trump’s former deputy campaign manager, Richard W. Gates III, who had pleaded not guilty after being indicted in October on charges similar to Manafort’s, was described in interviews by people familiar with the case.

“Rick Gates is going to change his plea to guilty,” said a person with direct knowledge of the new developments, adding that the revised plea will be presented in federal court in Washington “within the next few days.”

This move is part of Gates’ plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller.

But may not be about Trump https://t.co/BFScMRSKuw

As for what this means for Trump, we’ll have to wait and see.

Dana Loesch offers a MAJOR reality check to everyone blaming the NRA for the Florida shooting

Sun, 02/18/2018 - 19:32

Dana Loesch has had enough of the Left’s insistence on blaming the NRA for the horrific shooting at a high school in Florida last week.

The NRA is a member organization of average Americans. It lacks the authority and resources to follow up on reported red flags like the FBI is supposed to do, yet is being blamed for somehow not doing the FBI’s job. Progressive media refuses to question why no follow-up.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 18, 2018

If the discussion is how to better recognize red flags and improve protocol on checking reported, repeated threats, I’m all for it, especially since this is the 6th or so time that reported threats were ignored.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 18, 2018

NRA has also fought for 20 years for improvement of protocol & for states to fully comply w reporting those mentally adjudicated to NICS to bar purchase. Lawmakers like Feinstein don’t demand all convictions to be reported to system. This is where threats fall thru cracks.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 18, 2018

We’ve seen plenty of liberals try to accuse the NRA of being culpable in the massacre.

Sally Field thinks the GOP and NRA are together holding the country hostage.

WTF? Sally Field thinks the NRA and GOP are 'holding this nation hostage' https://t.co/FKDNPldD3K

He’s lost twice, but a familiar Dem says it’s a ‘real possibility’ he’ll run for POTUS again

Sun, 02/18/2018 - 18:46

Former vice president Joe Biden says it is a “real possibility” that he will launch a third run for the White House.

Biden telling policy aides 2020 White House run is a "real possibility": report https://t.co/2PpMFawvZ4 pic.twitter.com/6TyDncLwWn

— The Hill (@thehill) February 18, 2018

Here’s how Biden’s potential run is characterized by an AP report:

“Huddled in his newly opened office steps from the U.S. Capitol, Biden began a planning meeting for his new diplomacy center by addressing the elephant in the room. He said he was keeping his 2020 options open, considering it a real possibility. He insisted he had made no decision, and didn’t need to yet, according to five people who either attended the meeting or were briefed on it by those who did.”

Biden ran in 1987 and then again in 2007, when he was defeated by Barack Obama.

If Democrats end up nominating Joseph R. Biden after four years of dejection and soul-searching, it will say a ton about the state of their shredded party.

Rush Limbaugh says he’d support permanent citizenship for illegal immigrants under ONE important condition

Sun, 02/18/2018 - 18:15

Nationally-syndicated radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh was a guest on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace, who asked him about how he would deal with DACA and illegal immigration.

Limbaugh said he would agree to permanent citizenship for illegal immigrants under one very important condition … they would not be eligible to vote for 15 to 25 years.

.@rushlimbaugh says his solution to immigration reform and #DACA is to grant permanent citizenship if, as part of the deal, immigrants can’t vote for 15 years…”if they agree to that, I’ll give them amnesty.”

— FoxNewsSunday (@FoxNewsSunday) February 18, 2018

We know this will never happen because the ONLY reason Democrats ever wanted amnesty was to create a new voting block for their party.

.@rushlimbaugh on @FoxNewsSunday : "I would be willing right here to support an effort to grant permanent citizenship to whatever number of illegal immigrants there are in the country, tomorrow, if you will make as part of the deal they can’t vote for 15-25 years." @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/25hQpkA7aZ

— Pat Ward (@WardDPatrick) February 18, 2018

If Democrats were forced to reject such a deal, it would be clear to all watching (including illegal immigrants) that their party has only been concerned with making illegal immigrants citizens of the United States if they vote for them.

If not being eligible to vote for a quarter of a century was part of an immigration deal, we might see Chuck Schumer build the wall himself.

‘It’s crazy to defend the 2nd Amendment’: Seth MacFarlane has a SERIOUS question for gun owners EVERYWHERE

Sat, 02/17/2018 - 19:01

Producer Seth MacFarlane has a serious question for gun owners across America:

To those broad-stroke defenders of the 2nd amendment: How many of you have actually BEEN shot at? Any at all? Well, listen to these kids who have. https://t.co/huxCTpqcgv

— Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane) February 17, 2018

So, because we haven’t been shot at doesn’t mean we’re allowed to want to protect our Second Amendment rights? Got it.

It’s crazy to defend the 2nd Am in 2018. Written in times of war and muskets.

— The Stereotype (@stereotypesthlm) February 17, 2018

But you don’t say the same thing about the First Amendment.

Hypocritical much?

It's crazy to defend the first amendment in 2018. Written in times of printing presses and quills. The founders could never have imagined that @stereotypesthlm would be able to broadcast his opinion to the masses from his phone.

— Kevin Silver (@Ksilver3) February 17, 2018

BURN.

I’ve been shot at, and had guns pointed at me. Would have been great if I’d had a firearm to defend myself. Are you going to listen to my lived experience Seth, or is it only teenage girls you tend to follow on gun rights?

— Jonathan Witt (@Jonathan_Witt) February 17, 2018

Seth must think it’s okay to cherry pick stories. You know, pick the ones that fit his end goal of gun control.

I fully support the 2nd amendment right to bear muskets…

— Cheri Nash (@1southernnash) February 17, 2018

And this is what America is made of these days.

Seth, I do know how traumatizing it is to be shot at. I even witnessed my friend shoot himself in the head, but none of it happened because of the 2nd amdmt. We do need stricter gun laws and secured schools for children, but this Country will not ban arms. Not in our lifetime.

— Jennifer S. Green (@moonchildJG1182) February 17, 2018

At least someone realizes that outright banning guns won’t happen.

I've been shot at and in rocket attacks and you still aren't getting my gun. With a rogue FBI, DOJ, DNC and out of control government I'm going to buy more guns. The second amendment isn't about hunting, it's about defending myself from the government. Think before you speak.

— Chuck (@InspectDFWhomes) February 17, 2018

TRUTH.

The Founding Fathers were worried about a tyrannical government. They wanted to make sure Americans had guns to defend themselves against a corrupt government. Removing the Second Amendment removes one of our most basic rights AND protections we have.

I have been robbed at gunpoint. The last thing I wanted was gun control but I did want a 9mm with hollowpoints. I was working a job that forbid it's employees to carry. Now I am a conceal carry permit holder. I refuse to be a victim again.

— BigPapaRebel (@BigPapaRebel) February 17, 2018

That’s the difference between gun rights advocates and gun control advocates. Gun control proponents want you to take a chance with your life. Gun rights advocates want you to take your safety into your own hands.

Stick to Cartoons Seth.

Puh-LEEZE! Watergate journo goes FULL HACK in attempt to keep Dems’ collusion narrative alive [video]

Sat, 02/17/2018 - 18:51

Carl Bernstein, of Watergate reporting notoriety, was on CNN last night and tried his best to keep the Trump/Russia “collusion” narrative alive for another day. In the process, Bernstein said this of what we know about the Mueller investigation so far:

Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein on special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe: “We are seeing evidence of a conspiracy. Who was witting, unwitting in that conspiracy, we don’t know yet. But Mueller's indictments are pointing in a certain direction" https://t.co/o6E0sevUUz pic.twitter.com/RXkCBug80R

— CNN (@CNN) February 17, 2018

People involved in a conspiracy “unwittingly”?

If it's unwitting it isn't a conspiracy

That's what conspire means https://t.co/z0KzJK83fo

— Jim Treacher is a dumb pseudonym (@jtLOL) February 17, 2018

Bernstein was really working for an angle there but tripped over reality:

This is a joke. The mens rea of conspiracy is intent. You can’t “unwittingly” be involved in a conspiracy, because conspiring by definition implies knowledge of one’s circumstances and an intent to accomplish a certain thing. https://t.co/gpczhzO9fD

— James Hasson (@JamesHasson20) February 17, 2018

I'm not trained in the law but I'm pretty sure conspiracy requires intent https://t.co/ObZ2rktQpI

— DaveinTexas (@DaveinTexas) February 17, 2018

"Who was witting, unwitting in that conspiracy, we don’t know yet."

Talk about trying to stretch reality AND language. You can't be an 'unwitting' part of a 'conspiracy', because words actually mean things … even when you don't like the people you're discussing. #cripes https://t.co/N9Ss9iB7ug

— Cruadin (@cruadin) February 17, 2018

This sentence is a bunch of meaningless mumbo-jumbo. https://t.co/abBwq9rvHx

Here’s a list of recent attacks the FBI missed despite ‘significant warning signs beforehand’

Sat, 02/17/2018 - 11:30

The Washington Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski put Here’s a list of recent attacks the FBI missed despite ‘significant warning signs beforehand’together a list of recent attacks that the FBI missed despite “significant warning signs,” and it’s quite disturbing:

Attacks where the FBI was informed of significant warning signs beforehand:

Parkland
Charleston
Pulse Nightclub
Fort Hood

— Stephen Gutowski (@StephenGutowski) February 16, 2018

And there’s also last year’s shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas that the Air Force messed up regarding the shooter’s criminal history that would have prevented him from buying a gun:

The FBI should have known to block the sale of guns to the Sutherland Springs shooter as well but was left in the dark about his criminal history by the Air Force.

And Boston:

Russia also warned the FBI about one of the Boston bombers. https://t.co/zXLQBXZt2a

— Stephen Gutowski (@StephenGutowski) February 16, 2018

So, yes, it is appropriate to criticize the FBI from time-to-time:

The FBI, of course, has a long history of stopping crimes as well. They are clearly not perfect or beyond critique, though.

— CBS News (@CBSNews) February 16, 2018

No wonder they missed the Nikolas Cruz tips.

And Mueller has what, like 17 lawyers alone on staff to investigate Russia and Trump? From the Weekly Standard in December 2017:

Special counsel Robert Mueller may be the most well-known figure in the special counsel’s office (SCO), but the attorneys Mueller has assembled for his investigation into connections between the Trump campaign and Russian government during the 2016 election are a prosecutorial dream team. The SCO has declined to identify two of the 17 lawyers on staff, but the other 15 have taken down smugglers, gangs, and terrorists in court along with more mundane white collar criminals; they have clerked for Supreme Court justices and worked for some of the country’s most prestigious law firms. As pressure grows on Mueller’s investigation on multiple fronts, his team will be facing increasing scrutiny as well.

If American can find the money to fund the Mueller probe, then certainly we can find the money to increase the FBI budget for handling tips like the ones that could have prevented the massacre in Parkland, Fla. this week.

PRICELESS! Jennifer Lawrence’s defense of Elizabeth Warren is NOT helping (Hint: Heap big HILARIOUS)

Fri, 02/16/2018 - 21:43

Senator Elizabeth Warren, a possible contender for the Democrats’ 2020 nomination, has one celeb in Hollywood not only willing to defend her, but to portray her in defiance of criticism from President Trump:

Jennifer Lawrence hits Trump's "Pocahontas" slur: I could play Elizabeth Warren in a movie https://t.co/lwb0dGCA9T pic.twitter.com/CG0mBbbhCc

— The Hill (@thehill) February 16, 2018

From The Hill:

When asked which political character she’d want to play, Lawrence told ITK, “I could play Sen. [Elizabeth] Warren as Pocahontas.”

The quip was an apparent reference to a slur lobbed at the Massachusetts Democrat by President Trump.
[…]
The 27-year-old actress has been an outspoken critic of Trump, saying last year that any face-to-face encounter she would have with the president would likely end “with a martini to the face.”

Ummm…

I don't think you're making the point you think you're making https://t.co/6k43yMhZhV

Not at all, and it’s the perfect backfire:

Right, because you’re also not Native American https://t.co/cXi5MR1q60

First of all, it's FAUXCAHONTAS, not Pocahontas! (Unlike Warren, Pocahontas was an ACTUAL Native American.) But I will agree that Jen is certainly qualified to ACT like a WASPy white woman PRETENDING to be Native American to get ahead in academia & politics…#HarveyWood #phonies https://t.co/JRJRaJ0af5

Interesting, an Academy award winning actress playing the role of a woman who should win an award for acting like she’s Native American.

‘DELETE. THIS.’ Sky Williams REKT YouTube for ‘shaming’ users into subscribing to black content creators

Fri, 02/16/2018 - 21:32

As Twitchy readers know, on Valentine’s Day, YouTube took it upon itself to tweet this:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Subscribe to black creators.

— YouTube (@YouTube) February 14, 2018

Many people in social media, including several YouTube content creators, called YouTube OUT for this patronizing and insulting tweet that all but implies they don’t think black content creators can actually get subscribers unless they are ‘guilted’ or reminded to do so.

Which is SO damn insulting.

Sky Williams, a director, stand-up comedian, video blogger and content creator went OFF (and rightfully so):

We black creators are fucking fantastic with or without you and your soapbox.

Don’t tell people to fucking sub to me because im black. I want people to sub to me because i’m a fucking excellent content creator.

This shows you don’t even WATCH black creators.

DELETE. THIS. https://t.co/kfxPPmNZBR

— ♡♪!? (@SkyWilliams) February 15, 2018

They haven’t yet.

Subscribe to creators who make you laugh

who make you experience emotion

who value you as a fan

who challenges your way of thinking

who helps you cope when things get rough

who you relate to

who inspires you

and none of the aforementioned reasons are specific to race. https://t.co/kfxPPmNZBR

— ♡♪!? (@SkyWilliams) February 15, 2018

Boom.

I'm logging off for a bit.

I'm in genuine disbelief that YouTube

a platform I dedicated my life to

is really gonna sit there and tell you to sub to black creators like we don't have anything else going on with us while telling ME I'm not 'black enough' to speak.

I'm so angry.

— ♡♪!? (@SkyWilliams) February 15, 2018

Get ’em.

i am sorry for flooding your feed

i just feel like i shouldn't have to fucking audition every video for my blackness

and i dont like being told by a platform which has my heart hostage that I am not black enough to be a 'black creator'.

i'm extremely upset rn. I'll stop here.

— ♡♪!? (@SkyWilliams) February 15, 2018

Mic.

Drop.

Who can blame Sky for being upset with YouTube, which still hasn’t taken the insulting and obnoxious tweet down?

pic.twitter.com/GVZeUzaJz1

— RhythmLP (@rhythmLP) February 15, 2018

This was EPIC.

Mad respect for Sky Williams for calling YouTube OUT on their BS.

Ex AG found in contempt of Congress alarmed by ‘contours of the conspiracy’ outlined by Mueller indictments

Fri, 02/16/2018 - 21:18

Over a dozen Russian nationals have been indicted and accused of attempting to interfere in the U.S. election process as far back as 2014. There are no Americans involved (the indictment says some had “unwitting” contact with Russians), but former Attorney General Eric Holder smells a conspiracy:

Mueller indictment of Russians starts to fill out the other side. Next: who are the actors in this country. The contours of the conspiracy are starting to be detailed. This is hugely significant.

— Eric Holder (@EricHolder) February 16, 2018

If Holder crosses his fingers any harder his knuckles will crack.

Lotta hoping and praying here. https://t.co/SRPpLSu8Dz

OOPS! CNN’s Chris Cillizza tries to dunk on Trump about Mueller indictments, falls flat on his face instead

Fri, 02/16/2018 - 20:52

The Mueller investigation has so far culminated in over a dozen indictments of Russian nationals, who are accused of interfering in the U.S. election process starting in 2014. CNN’s Chris Cillizza tried to take the “didn’t age well” approach:

This, um, didn't age well https://t.co/DX8f7z0gd6

— Chris Cillizza (@CillizzaCNN) February 16, 2018

Trump: hackers could be Russia, China, or a "guy sitting on their bed who weighs 400 pounds." pic.twitter.com/KZUJsJkwXO

— Mashable News (@MashableNews) September 27, 2016

Cillizza went for the dunk and missed:

Where in the indictment did it mention hacking? Which page? I just read it and didn't see it.

— Mollie (@MZHemingway) February 16, 2018

Can you not even dunk on Trump correctly? The indictments today had nothing to do with Russian *hacking*, which is what Trump is denying in that clip https://t.co/2PArOnHTYh

— Definitely a Russian Bot (@HashtagGriswold) February 16, 2018

THIS. Is CNN.

Trump's statement was referring to the email hack – indictment doesn't mention the email hack, its just about internet trolls – but you knew that. So your tweet is more fake news.

— LE455 (@455LE) February 16, 2018

Fact check: No Russian was found responsible for hacking in these indictments.

— Esoteric Bullshit (@MindDrippings) February 16, 2018

So far there's not a shred of evidence pointing to collusion and this is what they tweet? https://t.co/gtl2cWTMQB

‘You’re not entitled to your own facts’: WATCH Gun Owners of America’s executive director debate CNN’s Richard Quest on gun control

Fri, 02/16/2018 - 19:52

Gun Owners of America’s executive director, Eric Pratt, went on CNN’s “Quest Means Business” to debate Richard Quest on the Florida school shooting and potential gun control solutions.

GOA’s @erichmpratt debates Richard Quest on CNN’s “Quest Means Business” on the tragic Florida Shooting.

"You're entitled to your opinion, but you're not entitled to your own facts." Pratt said. https://t.co/YowDMBocJy

— GOA (@GunOwners) February 16, 2018

Notice that Quest continually dismisses Pratt’s arguments?

Facts are completely foreign to liberals. They live solely on hysterical emotional rhetoric and propaganda.

— gregr (@gregr_a) February 16, 2018

They ignore facts because the facts tell them that their arguments are downright WRONG.

The logic )or complete lack thereof) of some amazes me everyday… pic.twitter.com/hslrrm5tGU

— Reuben Dickison (@ReubenDickison) February 16, 2018

Liberals seem to forget one major point: criminals break the law (that’s literally the definition of a criminal). Creating more laws isn’t going to force these law breaks to suddenly become law-abiding citizens.

Idiots are using this like they always do to take away rights from law abiding citizens 2self defense! How dare they politicize the tragedy 2 enslave non criminals with their ulterior motives!

— JohnMark_IB (@JohnMark_IB) February 16, 2018

Unfortunately, that’s their MO.

These are the only facts that matter… pic.twitter.com/zjrgirxTfc

This would have been a sign that would have been great for Quest to read.

Since all school shooters are < 23 maybe we should just gave a minimum age for possession, ownership, & purchase of an AR platform?

— The Duck (@_DuckOfDeath) February 16, 2018

There are already minimum age requirements for guns: 18 for a rifle and 21 for a handgun. Obviously, some states have exceptions to those but that’s the general rule of thumb.

Free speech allows everyone their own facts, and to report them without penalty or censure. No law requires you to listen to them.

— Peter Ostman (@Peter_W_Ostman) February 16, 2018

‘What the actual F*CK’? Blue-check proposes SICK poll for followers of NRA, Chris and Dana Loesch

Fri, 02/16/2018 - 17:39

Chris Mohney is a self-described “writer and editor and eater and drinker.” We can’t help but wonder if he forgot to mention his drug problem … because it takes a truly addled mind to come up with something like this:

If I paid for a promoted tweet poll targeting followers of @NRA, the Loesches, etc. that asked how many children they would personally kill to keep their guns, how long do you think until it got taken down

— Chris Mohney (@chrismohney) February 16, 2018

Good Lord.

Disgusting.

— 9MM_Dave (@EastCountyDave) February 16, 2018

How much time have you got?

The better question is how many children’s deaths will you applaud to push your idiotic gun control agenda? Israel doesn’t have this problem, why? https://t.co/7e3cszAdyD

— Chris Loesch (@ChrisLoesch) February 16, 2018

You're disgusting and I'd say you should be ashamed of yourself but let's be real people like you have no shame.

So that’s how many dead children exactly

— Chris Mohney (@chrismohney) February 16, 2018

One can own guns and not tolerate dead children. But if you cannot reconcile these two things, you are a very twisted person. Seek help.

— Joseph Aschiero (@JosephAschiero) February 16, 2018

Well see we as a country are very good at tolerating lots of guns and lots of dead children

— Chris Mohney (@chrismohney) February 16, 2018

You do know that drownings and car wrecks kill more kids than guns, don't you? I can't seem to find our tweets expressing outrage there, yet u seem weirdly focused on the *number* of kids killed.

— Defend The Second Am (@sheepdog2A) February 16, 2018

ya got me, I love it when kids get killed by cars, don't even care about the number
