Obama-Pushing-Fake-News Once a president turns over the Oval Office to his successor, it’s traditional for him to step out of the public eye and return to private life – or at least, to stay on the periphery of the political landscape. Former president George W. Bush retired to his Texas ranch to paint; Bill Clinton occasionally appears in public but generally in support of his wife’s political ambitions; other former presidents have done likewise. Barack Obama, however, apparently misses the attention too much – and he’s not very concerned about the veracity of his public statements, either. In a Facebook post on Tuesday, the former president not only complained about Trump ending his pet DACA program but made some provably false claims.

Richard Hennessey, Yavapai County PC: So is McCain back to work or sitting in a rocking chair drooling on himself?

Firearms Laws Expert Alan Korwin reports that Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org appears to be the only group calling for armed resistance to the Virgin Islands call for military gun confiscations. Everyone else is griping or filing paperwork. Korwin’s newsletter reads: “Governor Kenneth Mapp of the U.S. Virgin Islands has issued an order to confiscate privately held firearms as this U.S. Territory faces an oncoming hurricane. If U.S. National Guard troops execute this illegal order and attempt to forcibly disarm the public they should be met with armed resistance and subject to court martial. Other so-called gun-rights groups are calling for slow legal paperwork and making strongly worded statements.

     “What is it about people once they get into office—they seem to lose all sense of proportion and the right of the public to protect itself,” according to Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org, in response to the dangerous and intolerable gun-confiscation order. “The idea that you can make people safer by making them defenseless in the face of hurricane devastation is insanity,” JPFO says. “At the very time when lawlessness may rule, government can collapse, and essential services will rely on each family’s abilities, this order should be repealed or overlooked for safety.”

     Government is banned from, and has no legitimate authority for, disarming innocent civilians. Government however is historically prone to do so, preceding every civilian mass murder in history. Authorities don’t disarm criminals and malcontents—because they cannot—that’s common knowledge. Government agents arriving to disarm innocent people who face mayhem should face loaded guns, not compliant victims, because the agents are doing harm and threatening lives. Soldiers take oaths against this. People are justified in defending themselves—it is precisely why they are armed.

     Resistance to society-wide tyrannical edicts is exactly why the Founding Fathers enacted the Second Amendment, look it up. People are not armed to lay down like helpless sheep when government bangs on the door and illegally demands, “Give us your guns because we have our orders or we’ll shoot you.” Do the Virgin Islands have a registry list, so agents know on whose doors to knock? Compliance with this unlawful order of usurpation is lethally dangerous and must be withdrawn for everyone’s security.

US Senate candidate Dr Kelli Ward: It's important to unite behind the one person who will win the primary AND the general - and that's me. Our momentum is growing - Ingraham, Levin, Hannity, Rollins, Jan Morgan, Joy Villa, Citizens for Trump - even mentioned by Rush! Too many PCs and voters to even count. The conservative side of the party needs to show that we are ready, willing, and able to win. Continuing to propose other candidates or belittle the front runner is the exact wrong way to win. Unite and we win.
