VA State Senator Open Carries On House Floor – Deterrent For ‘Over-Exuberant’ Folks

Published

on

I simply love this story. Amanda Chase, who is a first-term conservative state senator, made good use of Virginia’s open-carry law this week by carrying her .38 caliber revolver with her right into the state’s capitol building. Now, that’s a woman’s right I can get behind wholeheartedly.

Amanda made headlines by being a staunch opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment. I like this woman… a lot. She made the decision to exercise her right to carry after pro-immigration activists confronted a fellow state senator the day before, forcing Capitol Police to be called, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. This is a smart woman.

Sen. Dick Black said Monday on the Senate floor that after he presented a bill against “sanctuary cities” he was “swarmed by a group of people taking pictures and being rather confrontational.”

“It concerned me,” Chase told The Washington Post (who probably had a stroke over it). She described her feelings about the incident. “I’ve had threats. I’ve had stalkers since I’ve been in the General Assembly. I am going to continue to represent the issues that are important to my constituents, and I’m not going to be intimidated by people who would try to physically harm me.”

Chase has a valid concealed-carry permit, so there is nothing out of line with any of her actions here. She says she always carries concealed. Every woman should. She made quite a sight as she presented bills in the Senate Privileges and Elections Committee while openly packing. One of those bills happened to be an Equal Rights Amendment resolution alternative. That just makes me smile.

“Sometimes it’s a deterrent for over-exuberant folks. Unfortunately, in the General Assembly, we see the good, we see the bad, we see all types of things,” she told the Times-Dispatch. “It’s just for personal safety, quite honestly.”

“I’ve had people get in my face. I’ve had people come up and try to touch me inappropriately,” she stated. “And it is a deterrent.”

Virginia is in the process of considering a number of gun control bills under Democratic Governor Ralph Northam. They need to wake up and elect better leaders in that state… Amanda would make a great governor I bet. Right now, “rules about guns are notoriously loose,” WaPo whined, and the state does not require a permit to open carry. In fact, several other GOP lawmakers also reportedly carry guns, although theirs are kept concealed.

“I’ve been called a ‘badass,’” Chase said to the Post, adding that she believes the practice “empowers women.” You betcha it does. “I jokingly call it my ERA.” Yes, if you want to stop attackers, rapists, terrorists and the like, there’s nothing like exercising your Second Amendment right to put an end to that. Empowerment is sending a message that you do not mess with women. They aren’t weak prey and you just might get shot.

Sanders To Cut Staffer’s Hours To Pay $15 Min Wage – This Is His Plan For America

Published

on

It should be glaringly apparent what a flaming, red hypocrite comrade Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is. He has demanded a $15 an hour minimum wage and more unionization for years. He has unionized his workers and is now paying them $15 an hour – he’s also cut his staffers’ hours to compensate for this move. Note to Sanders: that’s not what your supporters wanted.

The union contract that Sanders negotiated resulted in a flat annual salary of $36,000 for field staffers. In a normal 40-hour work week, that would pay about $17 per hour. But some staffers say they work up to 60 hours a week, meaning their pay ends up being about $13 per hour. Thus, Sanders will limit staffers’ hours to ensure they get at least $15 an hour. In the end, this means they will make less, not more working for the elderly socialist. Doing Moscow proud.

“We look forward to continuing those discussions and obviously are disappointed that some individuals decided to damage the integrity of these efforts before they were concluded,” said Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir in a statement to Newsweek. “As these discussions continue, we are limiting hours so no employee is receiving less than $15 for any hours worked.”

Do these guys realize just how bad this makes them look? I doubt it… self-awareness is not their strong suit, to say the least. It never is for communists.

From The Daily Wire:

“Shakir also told Newsweek that the campaign had offered to give field organizers a raise — to $42,000 annually, but the offer was rejected because staffers would have had to work six days a week. That salary also would have forced them “to pay more of their own health care costs,” Newsweek reported.

“The Des Moines Register reported that Sanders complained that staffers were going to the press instead of keeping their concerns internal.

“I’m very proud to be the first presidential candidate to recognize a union and negotiate a union contract,” Sanders told the outlet. “And that contract was ratified by the employees of the campaign, and it not only provides pay of at least $15 an hour, it also provides, I think, the best health care benefits that any employer can provide for our field organizers.”

“It does bother me that people are going outside of the process and going to the media,” he added. “That is really not acceptable. It is really not what labor negotiations are about, and it’s improper.”

“Sanders had previously expressed his dismay with press leaks ahead of his trip to Iowa this weekend.

“We are disappointed that some individuals have decided to damage the integrity of these efforts. We are involved in negotiations. And some are individuals that have decided to damage the integrity of that process before they were concluded,” he said.

“What Sanders is experiencing is exactly what he wants to foist onto millions of Americans and their employers. His staffers were salaried, but hourly workers will also see their hours cut in order to ensure they’re paid $15 per hour. As for negotiations, those demanding better working conditions routinely go to the press. They also sometimes hold strikes that are guaranteed to get media coverage. For Sanders to complain about how things are going in his campaign shows he hasn’t truly thought through the consequences of his policies.”

What’s a socialist to do? They want higher pay and free healthcare. In fact, they don’t really even want to work. They want their student loans paid and wages given to them whether they earn them or not. These people are worthless and hopeless. Sanders would set the minimum wage at $15 an hour for all Americans causing unemployment to soar if he got the chance.

Sanders’ minions are not happy and conservatives are savaging him over this:

“For the first time in his life, socialist Bernie Sanders practices economics and, buddy, the results are hilarious,” wrote columnist and humorist Stephen Miller. He added: “Why won’t millionaire Bernie Sanders, who owns 3 homes, instead of cutting hours, pay his staff a living wage? People are starving.”

Texas Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw lambasted the discord in the Sanders’ campaign and says it is beyond parody: “So does this fall under the category of hypocrisy, irony, or poetic justice?” Crenshaw asked. “All three? Can’t make this stuff up.” Lol.

“This situation is an instructive example of the downside of more than doubling the minimum wage,” wrote The Blaze’s Aaron Colen. “Companies don’t just suddenly get more money to pay employees. They have to make tough decisions; usually either cutting hours or worse, cutting staff.” Gee, reality bites… doesn’t it Bernie?

“This is just *chef’s kiss*.” Ben Shapiro wrote, “In which Bernie Sanders learns about economics.” Too true, except he’ll never learn.

Speaking on “America’s Newsroom,” Charles Payne said Sanders “blew a hole in his own $15 an hour minimum wage argument,” adding that he is paying his staff “what the market would bear.”

“There is a maximum amount of time you can work, some people may lose their jobs, I think Bernie may actually blew a hole in his own $15 an hour minimum wage argument,” Payne said.

“Needless to say, I think Bernie learned a valuable lesson, and by the way, his campaign doesn’t generate revenue.”

No, he didn’t. Of course, Sanders sees this as some form of communist morality… not a dollars and cents issue. And that is exactly why he will never be president thank goodness.

General Hospital Star Asks Ivanka If Her Daughter’s New Puppy Is A Nazi Yet

Published

...

* By

It seems that the left can’t ever stop their lunatic behavior. Here we have a woman who we’ve never heard of claiming to be a star. She wants her 15 minutes.

It’s amazing how the left connects having a dog to being a Nazi and that America never had a border until President Trump got elected. This is how stupid these people are, folks.

These people are getting worse every day. Their hatred for Trump literally has them foaming at the mouth. This psychotic behavior is only strengthening our side. Just wait until the landslide victory in 2020.

Via Breitbart:

Soap star Nancy Lee Grahn reiterated her disdain for the Trump family in a tweet posted Sunday, smearing White House Senior Advisor Ivanka Trump as a Nazi after she posted a picture of her family’s new dog, Winter.

Trump tweeted a photo of her family’s newest furry addition – or what she called “Arabella’s birthday dream come true” – in a tweet to her 6.7 million Twitter followers Saturday. Grahn pounced and went on the attack.

“How darling. I see you skipped a rescue and went straight to an Aryan breeder. Does it sit and sieg heil yet?” Grahn said, making a clear Nazi reference.

The General Hospital star has long been an outspoken opponent of the Trump family. Last week, Grahn called Trump an “evidenced lunatic” who has “mortifyingly not been impeached yet” due to Republicans in the Senate.

Last month, the Santa Barbara actress came under fire after posting a picture of kids in migrant shelters wrapped in aluminum blankets and blaming it squarely on the Trump administration. Some social media users, however, quickly noticed that she cropped out the date, hiding the fact that the photo was taken during the Obama administration.

“Trump administration is forcing children 2 sleep on cement floor with an aluminum blanket & lights on all night,” she tweeted. “Sarah Fabian from DOJ argued in court that it was good enough & soap was unnecessary. Companies making 750 a kid a day to torture them.”

Grahn eventually admitted that the photos were taken during the Obama administration but refused to back down.

“Had I noticed that, I would’ve clearly realized that it was from the Obama administration because he, unlike Trump, didn’t have a policy of separating children from their parents. Only a monster would do that,” she tweeted in part.

Trump signed an executive order ending family separations last June, telling reporters: “We’re going to have strong, very strong borders, but we’re going to keep the families together.”

“I didn’t like the sight or the feeling of families being separated,” he added.

Despite the cries from Grahn and other left-wing celebrities, the “cages” the left frequently refers to were set up and utilized by the Obama administration.
