Today, President Joe Biden pardoned all prior federal and D.C. offenses of “simple marijuana possession.” He also called on governors to pardon simple state marijuana possession offenses.
“The Justice Department will expeditiously administer the President’s proclamation, which pardons individuals who engaged in simple possession of marijuana, restoring political, civil, and other rights to those convicted of that offense.”
But you will still lose your 2nd Amendment Right if you have a simple medical marijuana prescription. The Obama/Biden Administration’s DOJ did that 4 days before leaving office. Apparently, possessing a medical marijuana prescription is more troublesome than being arrested for possessing and using marijuana itself.
High-ranking officials in the Biden administration worked hand in hand with influential social media companies to censor content that was deemed “misinformation,” according to emails revealed this week. The government identified “examples of problematic content,” and social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter would remove the posts, said the emails obtained in a lawsuit by Republican attorneys general Erich Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre clammed up when asked about the Biden administration’s alleged collusion with big tech.
“So, I–I–I don’t have anything to share with you on that. I’m not going to comment on that right at this time,” the White House press secretary said during the briefing.
It’s not news that the Second Amendment has been under attack by the Left for years. Decades in fact.
Four days from the end of the Obama administration, Obama’s DOJ added an infringement to purchasing a firearm. If you have a prescription for medical marijuana, you have no Second Amendment Right. But prescriptions for all other drugs are OK.
Maybe it’s been this way since 2017, I don’t know. But I heard today that if you have a Concealed Carry Permit, it will be revoked (infringed) if you obtain a medical marijuana prescription. You can’t have both. And you thought you had personal privacy.
All this is predicated on the fact that marijuana is still illegal at the federal level. There’s no distinction between prescribed and not prescribed. But hey, any way they can infringe on the Second Amendment, they will.
The #AmericanMarxist Left must be replaced with real Americans who support and defend the Constitution.
Here’s yet another reason to fire FBI Director Christopher Wray. Through mismanagement or no management, the FBI’s communication management is so bad that they have to issue estimates on crimes rates this year.
Why? “[N]ot every law enforcement agency in the U.S. has successfully moved to the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) for reporting their crime data”
They’ve known about it since 2015. It was supposed to be completed by 2021. Good example of bureaucracy gone amok. How can they fight crime (instead of looking for crime) if they can’t even communicate?
So who’s affected by this? “A few major cities, however, are still working on the transition. Crime estimates will fill in the gaps where data is not available this year.”
We should trust their estimates on the major crime cities in the country.
And you also won’t get national stats. “The release will not include national view tables.”
Two things I don’t doubt about this story. The incompetence of big government. And political bias in the estimates. Meaning, they will be understated. Because that’s what they do.
Below was my comment to the DOJ over the show raid at President Trump’s Florida home. The weaponization of the Justice Department for political purposes, FBI, is not acceptable, unconstitutional, and has got to be fixed. Time to stand up to this tyrannical Obama/Biden Administration, DOJ, FBI, and a host of top officials in them. Doing nothing will be to accept a Banana Republic, or Russian style of government. Biden’s version of the KGB. “President” Joe Biden and his administration is the threat to Democracy, not Trump.
If you’d like to petition the government too, here’s the LINK.
The Founding Fathers knew how corrupt a government could get. Because of that, they gave citizens the right and power to defend themselves against a tyrannical government in the Second Amendment. They also gave us the right to petition the government in the First Amendment. So, “when tyranny becomes law, resistance becomes duty.”*
Where Biden, Garland, and Wray are concerned, Trump Derangement Syndrome seems to have metastasized.
Want to play a game? I’ll see your 30 Federal Agents, and raise you a 30 round magazine.
You desperately need to get your operation back within the bounds of the Constitution. Expect to pay the price in Nov 2022 and 2024.
If any politician in this country is a Russian asset, it’s Joe Biden and the de-growth global warming nuts who control him. In the Biden Administration, the Dept. of Energy isn’t about getting cheap, plentiful, and clean energy. It’s about “Addressing the effects of climate change.”
Why else would he reverse US energy independence while lifting sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline, forcing us to buy oil from Russia and unfriendly states in the Middle East and Communist Venezuela, begging OPEC to increase their production?
But that’s not enough for Joe Biden. Contrary to its purpose, he wants to use the strategic reserves as a response to high prices at the pump. So if and when time comes that we actually need the strategic reserves, we won’t have them and will still be beholden to the same communist regimes for energy.
Current authorized capacity of the SPR (Strategic Petroleum Reserve) is 714 million barrels. In 2019 there were 634.9 million barrels in reserve. Today, that is down to 568 million barrels. A decrease of 10% from 2019 with no plans to replenish, and a 20% decrease from authorized capacity.
Putin couldn’t have done a better job of weakening our country and national security. For that, Biden gets a Happy Face from Vlad. And the global warming nuts are all warm and fuzzy. Because for them increasing oil production is a good thing as long as we don’t do it ourselves.￼￼
This is what fundamental change in America is shaping up to be as long as the Left and spineless Democrats are in the majority.
Democrats are on a suicide mission for this country. It’s called the Green New Deal. ￼ Joe Biden said his economic legislation, “the first piece, the 1.9, fundamentally change the structure and nature of the economy in this country.” He didn’t run on that and Americans didn’t vote for that. To say he is in China’s back pocket would be an understatement.￼ Details begin at 11 minutes in the video.
First in the plan is to end the use of fossil fuels, which happens to be the lifeblood of the world’s economy and our own.￼￼￼￼￼
Then make all transportation run on batteries.￼ Car manufacturing as we know it ends.
What country in the world has 80% of the resources to make batteries? China. And China just added, thanks to Joe Biden, the lithium mines in Afghanistan to their battery elements inventory.￼ Think of it as a going away present from Joe and Hunter.
The United States doesn’t have enough of the resources to be self-sufficient in battery power. But we do in fossil fuels, with an economy built on it.
How does it feel to be beholden to China?￼ China plays the long game. Now you know why Xi Jinping is always smiling. He would have the United States by its throat.
To say that politicians like Cori Bush, Harris, Biden, and the Squad are hypocrites on fundamental matters like law enforcement, illegal immigration, private property rights, 1A and 2A is really to give them a pass on their intent. ￼
By calling them a “hypocrite” presumes they are on the same side as you, but just selfish in their motive. The sooner the people realize that they don’t believe in America, and are out to destroy it, the sooner everyone will know them for what they are. Not hypocrites, but Marxists. American Marxists.
The shift to Marxism, or in President Obama’s words, fundamentally changing America, can’t happen in any honest manner with the consent of the American people. But it’s happening nonetheless, thanks to Nancy Pelosi and her soul brothers in the House by including it all in a Budget Resolution with zero transparency. And it’s full speed ahead for as long as they have control of Congress and The White House.
The borders are open (Cuba excepted) for two reasons. First of which is to chang the demographics of the country.
Because of the Lat-crit theory, born of Critical Race Theory, the second purpose is to say that if you are an American citizen, and you are not a Latino American citizen, or of Slaves or Black American citizen, then the whole notion of American citizenship is bogus. The whole notion of the United States is bogus. This is a fraudulent country, that was imposed on the indigenous people of the Americas by White Protestant Europeans. So it’s impossible to have illegal immigration with an open border. And if you protest or disagree, and don’t like an open border, then you are a contributor to the White dominant society, and dismissed. It’s what Marxists do.
That, and the Democrats obtain a permanent majority. By destroying the Separation of Powers, by destroying Checks and Balances, by destroying and nationalizing the voting system, by having the borders wide open, they will change the citizenry, they will change the demographics, they will change what voting means, and they will change federalism into nationalism. All that, with no debate, no transparency to the citizenry, stuffed into a budget resolution. That’s just how evil Pelosi and her Democrat colleagues are.
Ever since President Carter’s creation of the Department of Energy in 1977, the purpose of which was to become energy independent. It was a total failure. Not until 2019 in the Trump Administration did the country reach energy independence, where production exceeds consumption, for the first time in 62 years.
That was a time when the economy experienced an economic slowdown, gas prices were rising, gas stations were running out of gas, and the ones that had gas had lines going down the street. The Unites States was at the mercy of foreign countries for oil because we didn’t have enough supply of our own. People referred to the economy back than as the Carter Malaise. News organizations were polling and reporting what they called the “Misery Index” on a daily basis.
That President Trump could do this in only 3 years says a lot about the Washington insiders and bureaucrats that, by their actions, or in this case, in-action, could not do. The same politicians who go bonkers come election time, always wanting to spend (they call invest) billions and trillions of dollars in RBI, Roads, Bridges, and Infrastructure. (Joe Biden was in charge of doing just that under President Obama. Remember the “shovel ready” joke?) Should be obvious by now that they didn’t mean a word they said.
The irony in President Biden putting the kibosh on the most important infrastructure project in our time, that truly made us energy independent, somehow (not really) escapes notice in the media.
Belly up to the counter. Politics are on the menu and Ross is on the grill.
