Concealed Carry Reciprocity Effort Gains Steam in Congress

Concealed Carry Reciprocity Effort Gains Steam in Congress
In March, we reported on the details of NRA-backed concealed carry reciprocity legislation pending in Congress. The momentum behind those bills continues to build, with each attracting dozens of co-sponsors.

Sen. John Cornyn’s Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act now boasts 37 co-sponsors. And 194 of his House colleagues have signed onto Rep. Richard Hudson’s Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017.

Concealed carry reciprocity legislation recognizes that Americans’ Second Amendment right to bear arms doesn’t end at their states’ borders. While most states already recognize this and have provisions allowing for reciprocity for concealed carry permits from other jurisdiction, a minority of antigun states have made a point of arresting out-of-state residents who carry or transport otherwise lawfully owned firearms in their jurisdictions.  

This sort of “zero tolerance” enforcement has nothing to do with public safety and everything to do with punishing people who believe in the Second Amendment. There is nothing legitimate about a state using its police powers to suppress the constitutional rights of fellow Americans.

That’s why your NRA has for years supported legislation to ensure that people who are federally eligible to possess firearms and who have state-sanctioned ability to carry concealed don’t lose their eligibility to do so simply because they cross state lines. This legislation would ensure that states would have to treat lawful concealed carriers from other states the same as lawful in-state concealed carriers. States would maintain their prerogatives over their own licensing regimes and the rules of behavior that govern concealed carry within their borders.

Gun control proponents have weakly argued that this legislation makes the most lenient concealed carry standards the de facto national standard. What that argument fails to account for, however, is that criminals who carry unlawfully with evil intent have no standards whatsoever. These bills are not for them. They are for law-abiding and self-regulating Americans who take pains to carry lawfully. And lawful concealed carriers have proven themselves to behave responsibly year after year in every U.S. jurisdiction.

Every expansion of concealed carry rights over the last 30 years has been met with the same tired rhetoric from gun control proponents about how it will result in a return to the Wild West and “blood in the streets.” But with some 15 million concealed carry permittees in the U.S. and untold thousands more lawfully carrying in the 12 states that no longer require a permit for concealed carry, those predictions simply have not materialized. And the handful of cases gun control proponents desperately point to simply prove the rule.

If your senators or representative have not co-sponsored the bills introduced by Sen. Cornyn and Rep. Hudson, please contact them today and respectfully ask that they do so.

We are closer than ever to making national reciprocity a reality, but the effort needs your help to succeed!

Please contact your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative and urge them to cosponsor and support passage of S.446-- the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017-- in the Senate, and H.R.38 -- the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017-- in the House. You can contact your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative by phone at (202) 224-3121, or click here to Take Action.

What does Jim Comey,Hillary Clinton and Barry Obama have in common

They all seem to suffer from  narcissistic personality disorder and have the habit of burning the proverbial candle from both ends...what they fail to realize is... that those who burn the candle of life from both ends always get burned when the two flames meet in the middle and the light goes out in a flash of pain! 

The art of fire science is to start a back fire to fight a forest fire...I have been telling the GOP for years now that they will never put out the progressive forest fire with old school squirt gun tactics... 

Donald Trump has become Middle America's proverbial Back Fire and the progressive candle burners are feeling the burn and their proverbial light will be out soon!

Chinook Takes Direct RPG Hit… Miraculously Survives


Over the past decade, many American helicopters in the Middle East have been targeted by terrorists with RPGs or similar weapons that can cause severe devastation to these multimillion dollar aircraft.
Footage from what is believed to be the Middle East (possibly Afghanistan, though it is difficult to know) shows a Chinook helicopter continuing to fly despite being hit by a rocket-propelled grenade, American Military News reported.
The video shows the helicopter taking off with an unknown number of people aboard. Almost immediately after liftoff, an RPG is fired from the ground nearby.

The RPG strikes the aircraft in the back, but miraculously the helicopter continues to fly. That must have been a real shock to the terrorist on the ground who fired the rocket — who was undoubtedly expecting to knock the bird out of the sky.
It appears that the explosive hit the back of the aircraft, near where troops and/or equipment would be loaded onto the helicopter. That is most likely why the aircraft was able to continue to fly — it wasn’t struck in a vital area.
If the rocket had hit one of the Chinook’s rotors, it likely would have caused the aircraft to crash into the ground, possibly killing all those on board.

The most infamous Chinook incident was one that was shot down in 2011, killing 30 Americans and eight Afghans. Seventeen Navy SEALs were among the American dead.
This helicopter crew got incredibly lucky that they were flying in a helicopter that could take an RPG hit and stay in the air.

Clinton Goes Silent at Book Event After Being Asked About 1 Person

When it comes to Chelsea Clinton, there’s been almost as much speculation as whether or not she’ll run for office as there was for John F. Kennedy Jr. Unfortunately, while the apple may not have fallen far from the tree, it’s fallen far enough in ways that are disadvantageous to the former first daughter.
Sure, Chelsea may be the same empty husk of ambition and self-invention that her mother and her father are. However, when it comes to her parents’ vermiform ability to wiggle out of trouble, she just doesn’t seem to have it.
Nowhere was this more apparent than a recent book signing, when Clinton was asked to dedicate a copy of her latest tome to none other than Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who claims she was raped by former President Bill Clinton.

Chelsea was touring in support of the children’s book “She Persisted,” a feminist screed named after Sen. Mitch McConnell’s famous remark about Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s disgusting personal attack on Jeff Sessions during his nomination hearing for attorney general.
“I wrote this book for everyone who’s ever wanted to speak up but has been told to quiet down, for everyone who’s ever been made to feel less than,” Clinton said about her book, according to The New York Times.
So, one political activist came to a book signing in New York City and decided to ask about getting the book dedicated to someone who’s “been made to feel less than” by the Clinton family.

That’s when things got a bit ugly… [CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE]


From Info Wars
A middle-aged woman writing anonymously for the left-wing blog Blankspot revealed how it’s normal practice for volunteers to take “child” migrants into their homes and have intercourse with them.
“From time to time gets to stay the night at my place,” wrote the woman, adding, “Now the sofa doesn’t work anymore, he gets to sleep with me in my bed.” 

“I text a friend, “Help, I have to take him in my bed”. “We all do it, don’t worry. That’s how it is, give him intimacy, that’s all you can do”.
Academic Ann Heberlein said that such behaviour is “fully accepted and institutionalized”.
The story is being spun as an abusive act on behalf of the women because the “refugees” are supposedly minors, but as Sweden’s own government-backed study recently concluded, at least 75% of so-called child refugees were proven to be adults after extensive medical tests. 

This is not the first report about leftist “refugees welcome” activists and volunteers having sex with migrants (not counting the ones who are raped).
In a related story, another Swedish woman has been exposed as performing lap dances for “child refugees” (migrants in their 20’s and 30’s) and having “intimate relationships with them at an asylum centre in Åmål.
Volunteers working at the Calais migrant camp in France before it was demolished were also accused of having sex with migrants by other charity workers.
A whistleblower who worked at the Calais camp said women were having sex with “boys believed to be under the age of consent,” as well as prostituting themselves out to several different sexual partners every day.
The founder of CareForCalais, a volunteer charity, also left her husband for a relationship with a Tunisian migrant who later ripped her off for thousands of pounds. 

Clare Moseley began a relationship with the migrant after she had “promoted her charity’s no sex with migrants policy”.

Thug Tries To Rob A Store Where Every Customer Is Armed

Thug Tries To Rob A Store Where Every Customer Is Armed
by:Mac Slavo
People who support gun control often argue that it would be disastrous if everyone was walking around with a gun at all times. They fear that it would make firearm accidents more likely, and in the event that a robber or a mass shooter is on the loose, there would be a chaotic hail of gunfire from all directions.
It’s a silly argument to make, considering that even in states where there are loose gun laws, and where it is easy to obtain a concealed carry permit, only a minority of citizens carry guns at all times. But for the sake of argument, what would happen if everyone was armed in the vicinity of a violent criminal?
Perhaps this footage of a liquor store robbery in Brazil can answer that question. It shows what happens when a robber tries to hold up a store where every customer is packing heat.

The footage, which was originally posted on Liveleak, is dated May 31st, 2017. The gunman enters the store with a motorcycle helmet to conceal his face but appears to drop his weapon after he walks past one of the customers. Then he is shot after every customer draws a gun on him.
Not many details about this incident have been released so far. It’s not clear if the robber survived. It’s also not clear if the customers were plainclothes police officers, or if they were ordinary citizens. Though the latter of those possibilities wouldn’t be far fetched. For starters, you’ll notice that the customers aren’t sporting the short, military style haircuts that most Brazilian cops have, nor are they all carrying the same type of firearm.
Also, Brazil has one of the highest violent crime rates in the world, and their gun laws that make it very difficult for most people outside of law enforcement to carry firearms in public. However, more than a third of the guns in that country are unregistered, so clearly most people are ignoring their government’s onerous gun laws.

It’s very possible that in the footage, we’re seeing several civilians break the law to protect themselves and the cashier.
Regardless of who these people are, it just goes to show that the best crime deterrent isn’t a cop who will show up five minutes after a victim calls 911. It’s people who are armed, and on the scene when a crime takes place.

Shakespeare in the Park Glorifies the Murder of President Trump

by: Onan Coca 

It’s amazing isn’t it?
For years the liberal media (and many of their friends in politics) have attacked Republicans for using any rhetoric that could be remotely connected to violence.
Whether it’s words like “taking aim,” or “hunting,” or “firing the first shot,” or “fighting for you,” liberals love to use these words against Republicans and argue that they are “inciting” violence. However, when Democrats literally use violence – whether during protests to shut down conservative speech, or in dramatized form like Kathy Griffin – liberals are suddenly unconcerned about violent rhetoric.

You’d have thought that liberals had learned their lesson after watching rapper Snoop Dogg “shoot” a version of the President (dressed as a clown), or Kathy Griffin’s faux-beheading of the President… but no, they’ve learned nothing. How do we know? Because this year’s supposedly a-political Shakespeare in the Park (in Central Park, New York City), dramatizes a very intense, and very graphic scene wherein President Trump gets murdered.

Take a look at @PublicTheaterNY's first Shakespeare in the Park production of 2017, a Trump-inspired Julius Caesar 

SHOCK: Michigan Official Blames Flint Water Crisis On “F***ing N***ers who don’t pay their bills”

A Flint official suggested in May that the root cause of last year’s Flint water crisis was that black people refused to pay their water bills, according to a video obtained by a Michigan-based activist group. 

“Flint has the same problems as Detroit — fucking niggers don’t pay their bills, believe me; I deal with them,” Phil Stair, a manager at the government-operated Genesee County Land Bank, reportedly said in a May 26 conversation with environmental activists. Stair, who is white, claimed that the city’s black residents’ failure to pay their bills caused price hikes, which ultimately prompted officials to switch Flint’ water supply.

From The Daily Caller 
"Genesee County Land Bank is a government organization that manages foreclosures in the Michigan area.
Stair’s comments came shortly after Flint City Council members approved a one-year moratorium May 18 on liens after citizens protested the city’s threats to foreclose the homes of nearly 8,000 people affected by last year’s lead crisis. Many people have been directed to drink out of water bottles until the city’s pipelines are brought up to snuff.

Council President Kerry Nelson said he had received numerous calls to his office pleading for the move. Residents are refusing to pay the city’s high rates for water that could not be used without a filter. Stair’s statements suggest that there is some animosity between the city officials and the citizenry in the area.
Stair qualified his comments, telling activists during the sit-down chat that, “I don’t want to call them niggers, shit I just went to Myrtle Beach, 24 guys, and I was the only white guy; I got friends, I mean, there’s trash and there’s people that do this shit. They just don’t pay their bills. Well, Detroit, didn’t collect on their bills, so they charged everybody else, but- Flint- Flint had to pay their bill to Detroit.”

Genesse County Land Bank Executive Director Michele Wildman told The Daily Caller News Foundation that the bank accepted Stair resignation Monday morning shortly after the video surfaced. “We are deeply troubled by the offensive and inexcusable comments and apologize to the community for his words,” she added.
Michigan state officials have been struggling to get the small, mostly black town’s water system up and running after lead contaminated its water supply. High levels of lead are believed to be a contributing factor to the outbreak in Legionnaire’s disease.

Officials switched the small eastern Michigan city’s water supply from Lake Huron in 2015 to the Flint River in a bid to save money. They transferred the water source from the pricey Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) pipeline to the even more expensive Karegnondi Water Authority (KWA). But the state applied the wrong regulations and standards for drinking water, which ultimately resulted in corroded pipes.
The scandal eventually came to a head after thousands of Flint citizens sued the federal government for failing to handle the city’s water problem. They claimed the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) failed to take the proper steps to ensure that state and local authorities were addressing the crisis. The defendants are seeking a civil action lawsuit for $722 million in damages.

There has been plenty of blame to spread around. Activists and regulators claim the bulk of responsibility for the debacle rests on local officials. Stair appeared to mirror that position.
“It was really a failure on the part of the Governor to step in,” he said of Republican Gov. Rick Snyder’s supposed failure to address the city’s water infrastructural problems before they became scandals.

Nevada: Legislature Adjourns Sine Die

June 5, the Nevada Legislature adjourned sine die for the 2017 legislative session.  This was a busy session for gun owners as many firearm-related bills saw action. All anti-gun legislation failed to pass and a pro-gun bill, Assembly Bill 118, was signed into law. 

Your NRA-ILA will be back when the legislature convenes in 2019 to continue the fight to protect your Second Amendment rights!  Below are some of the pertinent gun bills that had movement this legislative session.  

Assembly Bill 118, which was signed into law by Governor Sandoval on May 22, will allow members of the military and those who have received an honorable discharge between 18 and 20 years of age to obtain a permit to carry a concealed firearm.  This legislation went into effect immediately.
Senate Bill 115, sponsored by state Senator Moises Denis (D-2), would expand the list of places firearms are prohibited from being carried and kept to include public library property.  In addition to banning firearms within the library, this prohibition would be extended to include the parking lot as well.  This would encompass the onsite “book drop” stations commonly used for returning library materials.  This bill was never considered for a vote in the Assembly Judiciary Committee. 
Senate Bill 387, sponsored by state Senator Julia Ratti (D-13), would allow for ex parte orders to remove your Second Amendment rights - not because of a criminal conviction or mental adjudication, but based on third party allegations.  This order lacks due process as firearms are required to be surrendered weeks before a hearing may take place.  Further, this bill, unlike the current "Legal 2000 process," would do nothing to address those in need of mental health treatment or evaluation.  This bill was never considered for a vote in the Assembly Judiciary Committee.

Who is Reality Winner? Accused leaker wanted to ‘resist’ Trump

Griff Jenkins reports from Washington, D.C.
oped: While what she did was illegal this misguided young lady was dumbed down by the looney left...she bought into their lies and misinformation....however I will give her credit for admitting what she did and took responsibility for her actions...much more honest than the queen bee Hillary...of the dishonest /corrupt DNC... the Clinton's Obama's et al.
I am also disgusted with the FBI and DOJ...they took immediate action arresting this young lady... being that she is a low level serf of the progressive movement...busted taken into custody within a week..while the Obama and Clinton cartels have been going on for decades and no action taken! ...Violation of the RICO statues as well as 18 USC 2384-85 Seditious Conspiracy! #GoFigure

By Brooke Singman 
The alleged leaker accused of feeding a classified report to an online news site has a colorful history on social media that lays bare her political leanings as an environmentalist who wanted to "resist" President Trump.  
Reality Winner, a 25-year-old Air Force veteran, is a contractor with Pluribus International Corporation assigned to a federal facility in Georgia, where she allegedly leaked a classified intelligence report containing “Top Secret Level” information. The report, according to the Department of Justice, contained classified defense information from an intelligence community agency.
While the DOJ did not say which site published the information, the charges were announced just as The Intercept published details of a National Security Agency report on Russian hacking efforts during the 2016 presidential election.
According to the Justice Department, Winner admitted to printing a classified intelligence document despite not having a “need to know,” and with knowledge the report was classified. Winner further admitted removing the report from her office space and mailing it to the news outlet, according to the criminal complaint.

Why go through all the trouble and risk?
The Justice Department does not speak to motivation, but Winner’s social media pages indicate she was a passionate environmentalist who shared Bernie Sanders material online and held some anti-Trump views. She shared numerous articles and comments against the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines (which Trump has moved to revive) on her Facebook page, even posting a letter she sent to the office of Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga.
“Repeat after me: In the United States of America, in the year 2017, access to clean, fresh water is not a right, but a privilege based off of one’s socio-economic status,” Winner wrote in a Facebook posting about four months ago.

Winner also posted using the hashtag #F---ingWall, in an entry about Trump “silencing” the Environment Protection Agency.
Winner also posted in February, before Trump revived construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline: “You have got to be s---ting me right now. No one has called? The White House shut down their phone lines. There have been protests for months, at both the drilling site and outside the White House. I’m losing my mind. If you voted for this piece of s---, explain this. He’s lying. He’s blatantly lying and the second largest supply of freshwater in the country is now at risk. #NoDAPL #NeverMyPresident #Resist.”
And in one telling post before the general election, she wrote, "On a positive note, this Tuesday when we become the United States of the Russian Federation, Olympic lifting will be the national sport."

As for non-political interests, her social accounts also suggest she's a workout buff and donates to veterans' and children's charities.
Air Force officials confirmed that Winner served active duty from December of 2010 to last December. It was not immediately clear if she was ever deployed. Winner was a cryptologic language analyst, requiring fluency in at least one foreign language which was not divulged. Winner attained the rank of senior airmen, E4, and was last stationed at Ft. Mead in Maryland.
The Justice Department did not specify whether Winner is being charged in connection with the Intercept’s report, but the site noted the NSA report cited in its story was dated May 5 of this year -- the affidavit released by the DOJ supporting Winner’s arrest also said the report was dated “on or about” May 5.
“Exceptional law enforcement efforts allowed us to quickly identify and arrest the defendant,” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said on Monday. “Releasing classified material without authorization threatens our nation’s security and undermines public faith in government.”

Rosenstein added: “People who are trusted with classified information and pledge to protect it must be held accountable when they violate that obligation.”
Winner has held a top secret clearance during her employment at Pluribus International Corporation. She has been employed at the facility since mid-February.
Late Monday night, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange tweeted his support for Winner.

Alleged NSA whistleblower Reality Leigh Winner must be supported. She is a young women accused of courage in trying to help us know.
“Alleged NSA whistle-blower Reality Leigh winner must be supported. She is a young woman accused of courage in trying to help us know,” Assange posted on Twitter.
On Tuesday, The Intercept released a statement saying they had no knowledge of the identity of the person who provided them with the classified documents.

Canada hates Christians loves Muslims...

...and everything #LGBTQ related !

Canada Passes Bill to Let Government Remove Kids from Christian Homes

 by:Tim Brown
Canada has now passed what critics have called “totalitarian” legislation that could give more power to the state to remove children from the homes of Christians and others who oppose the LGBT agenda.
Bill 89 passed by a vote of 63 to 23 on the last day before Queen’s Park adjourns for the summer.
Lifesite News reports:
Pro-family advocates warn Bill 89 gives the state more power to seize children from families that oppose the LGBTQI and gender ideology
Pro-family advocates warn Bill 89 gives the state more power to seize children from families that oppose the LGBTQI and gender ideology agenda, and allows government agencies to effectively ban couples who disagree with that agenda from fostering or adopting children.
Bill 89, or the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017, repeals and replaces the former Child and Family Services Act that governs child protection services, and adoption and foster care services. 

It adds “gender identity” and “gender expression” as factors to be considered “in the best interests of the child.”
At the same time, it deletes the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child as a factor to be considered, and mandates child protection services consider only the child’s own “creed” or “religion” when assessing the best interests of the child.
Jack Fonseca, senior political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition said, “With the passage of Bill 89, we’ve entered an era of totalitarian power by the state, such as never witnessed before in Canada’s history.”
“Make no mistake, Bill 89 is a grave threat to Christians and all people of faith who have children, or who hope to grow their family through adoption,” Fonseca added.

“Disappointed as I am with this result, I am not surprised,” said Tanya Granic Allen, president of Parents As First Educators (PAFE). “The Kathleen Wynne Liberals have for years been pursuing their anti-parent and anti-family agenda and Bill 89 is the latest installment.”
A source told LifeSiteNews the Conservative members were swayed in their vote by “three or four” MPPs who said they could not in conscience vote for a bill that was “fundamentally and morally wrong.”

Mr. Fonseca praised the Progressive Conservative MPPs for rejecting the propaganda and voting as a block against “tyranny.”
“And thank God they did, because it serves as a symbol of resistance,” he said.  “CLC had been directly lobbying MPPs to oppose the bill, and we believe that may have been a factor in why the PCs ended up voting en masse against it.”
Parents As First Educators and the Association for Reformed Political Action (ARPA) also pushed against the bill.

Lifesite continues:
Bill 89 retains the provision in current law that a child who is suffering or “at risk of suffering” mental or emotional harm and whose parents do not provide “treatment or access to treatment” is in need of protection under the law.
But while the former law said the Children’s Aid Society should take the “least disruptive course of action,” Bill 89 adds “including the provision of prevention services, early intervention services and community support services,” according to an ARPA analysis.
“The implication is that intervention should not be presumed to be more disruptive than non-intervention,” the ARPA report adds.
Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill, believes that questioning teenagers’ self-identification as LGBTQI or telling them to change as abuse.
“I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently,” he said.  “If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.”
The problem is that t is abuse or more rightly neglect, to allow a child to think wrong about their gender and sexuality.

Mr. Forseca said that they have already witnessed the effects of such tyrannical acts in advancing the LGBT agenda around the world.
“We already see similar tyranny happening in other jurisdictions, such as Norway, where the main child protection service there, Barnevernet, has been involved in numerous high-profile seizures of children from traditionally-principled families,” he said.  “Even before Bill 89 was passed, but immediately after its introduction in December,  I learned of several Christian couples who were turned down for adoption on account of their deeply held religious beliefs about traditional marriage and human sexuality.”

“Why has the most powerful spiritual body in this province, the Catholic hierarchy, not lifted a finger nor raised a voice to oppose this tyranny against Christian families, and those from other faiths?” Fonseca asked of the Roman Catholic Church.  “The lack of spiritual leadership is killing us. Every single time that Liberals, either federally or provincially, roll out the LGBT juggernaut to take away our rights, or to demonize us as bigots, we hear nothing but silence from the Church. This has to stop.”
can answer that.  It’s because they are compromised.  I’ve reported numerous times on the sexual abuse cases within the RCC.  Just last month, the Vatican basically covered up the story of a priest with HIV who raped 30 girls and confirmed that over 2,000 sexual assault cases are in the church.

When the Church cleans house, it will help to heal the culture, but as long as it remains corrupt it will be useless in the fight for godliness, righteousness and the families it is supposed to shepherd.

Police in Portland, Oregon, prepare for opposing political rallies

By Terray Sylvester
PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - Police in Portland girded for potential unrest on Sunday, citing "online threats of violence," ahead of dueling political rallies planned by supporters and opponents of President Donald Trump after racially charged killings convulsed Oregon's largest city.
The Trump Free Speech Rally and counter-protests were set to unfold a week after a man shouting religious and racial slurs at two teenage girls on a Portland commuter train stabbed three passengers who intervened, killing two of them.
One of the girls accosted in the incident, which the FBI is investigating as a suspected hate crime, was black, the other was wearing a Muslim head scarf.
Jeremy Christian, a 35-year-old with a prior felony record, was arrested and charged with murder in the May 26 attack, which Trump has condemned as "unacceptable" while saluting the three stabbing victims for "standing up to hate and intolerance."  

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler last week urged federal authorities to rescind a permit for the June 4 pro-Trump rally, saying he worried the protest could inflame tensions in the wake of the stabbings.
But the U.S. General Services Administration, which manages the downtown Terry Schrunk Plaza protest site, denied the request, saying the permit was lawfully obtained.
Trump rally organizers also rebuffed Wheeler's pleas to cancel their demonstration, leading several opposition groups to issue calls on social media for counter-protests and setting the stage for a possible confrontation.
The Portland Police Bureau vowed a show of force on Sunday with help from state troopers, county sheriff's deputies, the FBI and Federal Protective Service, warning that protesters with weapons would face arrest.

Joey Gibson, an activist with the pro-Trump group Patriot Prayer, told local media he had arranged for private security to accompany his supporters.
Gibson said some of those security personnel would have permits to carry concealed handguns and some were affiliated with militia groups, Portland's Oregonian newspaper reported.
Anti-Trump activists staged a separate demonstration in Portland on Saturday, as part of nationwide "March for Truth" rallies in support of investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion by Trump's campaign.
That event, which drew a crowd of some 600 people, remained peaceful, with no arrests reported.
"People are really aware of who's around them. They're really aware of the need to control their emotions," said Lisa Stiller, one of the organizers.

Putin On Trump’s Paris Decision: ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy’


As the nations President Donald Trump portrayed as economic rivals that would have gained from U.S. participation in the Paris Agreement criticized his decision to withdraw form the accord, Russian President Vladimir Putin took a different approach.
“Don’t worry, be happy,” Putin told an economic forum in St. Petersburg on Friday. Putin also threw in a joke about the agreement and Moscow’s weather.
“By the way, we should be grateful to President Trump. In Moscow, it’s raining and cold and even, they say, some snow,” Putin said.

“Now, we could blame this all on American imperialism, that it’s all their fault,” he continued. “But we won’t.”

Putin in English: "Don't worry, be happy," as he trolls global freak out over Trump's climate change policy - 
Putin said that in the aftermath of Trump’s decision, nations need to find a solution that brings the U.S. to the table. 
You shouldn’t make a noise about this, but should create the conditions for joint work,” Putin said. “If such a major emitter as the U.S. is not going to cooperate entirely then it won’t be possible to agree any deal in this area.”
"Putin said the Paris Agreement was still, in his mind, a work in progress.
‘In my view it was possible (for the U.S.) not to leave the Paris agreement because it is a framework deal, and it was possible to change the U.S. obligations inside the framework of these agreements,” he said. “But what has been said has been said. And we need to think what to do further.”
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, however, said Europe will address climate change without help from the United States.

"We in Germany, in Europe and the world will band together to take more decisive action than ever to confront and successfully surmount major challenges to humanity such as climate change,” Merkel said.
“The decision of the U.S. president to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement is very regrettable, and I’m expressing myself in a very reserved way when I say that,” she said.
German anger over Trump’s action was typified in the headline of the Berliner Kurier, a tabloid, which wrote, “Earth to Trump – f**k you!”
Trump, in rejecting the Paris accord, said those who supported it did so not for the sake of the climate, but to gain a competitive advantage over the United States.

"The Paris Agreement handicaps the United States economy in order to win praise from the very foreign capitals and global activists that have long sought to gain wealth at our country’s expense,” Trump said Thursday.
“The same nations asking us to stay in the agreement are the countries that have collectively cost America trillions of dollars through tough trade practices and, in many cases, lax contributions to our critical military alliance,” Trump added.

Free Speech Rally with BASED STICKMAN, BASED SPARTAN, PATRIOT GIRL, WARRIORS FOR FREEDOM, AND MANY OTHERS IN DOWNTOWN PORTLAND…one of the most liberal areas on the West Coast. There will be speakers exercising their free speech, live music, flags, and an uplifting experience to bring back strength and courage to those who believe in freedom.
Thank you Trump for all you have done.

The Patriots Prayer crew and their allies from OR and WA came down to Berkeley TWICE to help us with security there.   We need to do them a solid, in return, by going to help them this Sunday, in Portland.  Therefore, I put out a call to action to our OR, CA, and WA members, and we have Oath Keepers from all three states who will be there tomorrow to assist the event organizer with security for the venue, for the speakers, and for the audience.   The event organizer already has a very competent, squared away security team, and will also have a large number of patriots attending who are VERY capable of defending themselves, but we will also be there to lend our expertise and advice (in particular, our very well trained and experienced police and military veterans).   I am flying into Portland and will be there in person (I never ask anyone to do anything I am not willing to do myself).  We are also once again flying in some of our most experienced retired police officers, just as we did twice in Berkeley, CA, and then in Boston, MA, with spectacular success.

If you somehow missed the email to nearby states, asking for volunteers, it is still not too late to step up.   Just email us at:
Contact email for all volunteers:
And then show up.  Please let us know you are coming.  In addition to those who can provide effective security, we always welcome medical, communications, and intelligence personnel.   And if you are simply a concerned American, and want to come support free speech, by all means show up.

Some of our Berkeley security volunteers on April 27, 2017.  The event went so peacefully we didn’t get to use those shields.  But better to have them and not need them, than to need them and not have them.
We expect this event in Portland to go as well as the others, and our purpose, as always, is to lend a hand to be sure it does.  The best outcome is a repeat of the Berkeley, CA rally on April 27, 2017, where Berkeley PD stepped up with their “A” game and took care of business to the point that we didn’t have to lay a hand on anyone, and we just had a great day of speeches in the park, like a “normal” rally (as opposed to the ridiculous spectacle of people having to fend off masses of masked attackers just to get a chance to listen to speakers in a public park).
So long as the Portland PD and other state as well as federal LEOs step up strong and do their jobs tomorrow, the outcome should be like it was the last time we were in Berkeley.  However, as always, we will be ready, willing, and able to effectively defend the rights of all present if there is any failure of the police to do so.  We DO NOT expect that, but we are always prepared for anything, as is our duty.

Please wish us luck, and say a prayer for all involved.

PS – Sadly, some of our Oregon leaders got cold feet and were unwilling to do any security op in Portland.  Apparently they have given up on Portland and think it is OK to consider Portland a “no go” zone for security operations to protect life and liberty (free speech).  I strongly disagree.  Just like in Berkeley, CA, there can be no such thing as a Marxist dominated “NO free speech” zone in an entire city inside the U.S, akin to the Muslim extremist no-go zones in Europe, where non-Muslims dare not go on pain of death.   We, as Oath Keepers, have a duty to step up, as “sheepdogs” and defend people against assault as they exercise their rights of free speech and assembly.  Otherwise, what is the point of our motto of “Not on Our Watch!” and our byline of “Guardians of The Republic”?
To be clear, while rank and file members of Oath Keepers are encouraged to volunteer, I never demand that they must show up.   This is a voluntary association, and therefore I can only ask, strongly encourage, and then lead by my example.  However, those in a leadership position within a state chapter have the same duty that I do to step up and lead by their example.  That’s what leaders do.    They don’t get to just stay home when duty calls.  That’s the price of being a leader.

While concerns about what could happen to our volunteers are certainly understandable, Mission comes first (defending the Constitution and the rights of the people protected therein).  Then the men.  And then a leader’s concern for himself must come last.  Regardless of the justification, it is entirely wrong and unacceptable for a leader in this org to stand down and refuse to go into Portland to protect people who need our help, and request our help, against violent assault by communist and “anarchist” terrorist thugs who use violence or the threat of violence to shut down free speech.  Again, “Duty is ours.  Results are God’s.’  I believe some of them to be honorable men, who simply lost sight of the big picture obligation to put mission first, even in Portland, and I hope they realize their error and step up to defend the rights of the people of Oregon in every corner of their state, as is their duty.
Regardless, there are rank-and-file Oath Keepers members from Oregon who will be showing up tomorrow, along with the ones from California and Washington State, and out of those Oregon members who show up will come new leadership.

While violence is always possible, and we encourage you to be ready in case it does happen, we do think this will go well and we encourage you to go if you can.   It is good for the soul, it is good for establishing and strengthening bonds of brotherhood, it is good for our relations with police (showing them who the real enemy is, and who is really on their side), and it is good for our growth as an org, and our ability to shape what happens in OR as a whole.  We will be working alongside some very squared away men in the “Peace Keepers” group, and other patriot organizations and groups, and we will end up forming strong bonds and ties across groups that will bear great fruit in the future. I hope to see you there.
