Critics Tell GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert What To Do With Her ‘Prayers’ After Boulder Shooting | HuffPost UK


Yet another shooting and loss of life in America, when will it stop?

The gun lobby feel it will when everyone carries a gun, but was that not the case before ‘so called’ Law and Order was established in America. This was referred to the ‘Wild West‘, when virtually everyone carried a gun.

WShen it did not stop gun killings then and it will not know. Since then the range of firearms has increased considerably, as had the fire power of these weapons, for now instead of the six shot gun, the weapon of favour is the AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, a weapon with so much more fire power as the old six shot guns, a weapon of ultimate destruction, which is put forward as a weapon of defence. With a weapon of that nature there is no defence, just killings.

The only sure way of bringing the killings down is for very tight gun control, a ban on personal use of semiautomatic rifles and a removal of ‘open carry’ for the general population, this is what we do in the UK and our gun killings are no where the numbers of in America.

The referred defence is the, The Second Amendment, one of the ten amendments to the Constitution comprising the Bill of Rights, states: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”.

Which means ‘The right to keep and bear arms (often referred to as the right to bear arms) is a right for people to possess weapons (arms) for their own defense.’.

It was adopted on 15 December 1791, this is well before the development of semiautomatic rifles and should therefore only relate to the firearms of that time and not of the current time.

For today , in certain areas, is back to pre 1791, they have learnt nothing over the years, so the killings go and on.

Where is the Human right to Life in America, for it appears to not exist.

‘Vintage white rage’: Why the riots were about the perceived loss of white power


The actions of supposed Trump supporters in Washington DC and their invasion of the US Capitol building and wanton destruction of areas within the building are a blight on Society.

These rioters or more correctly terrorists, feel they have lost or losing the right of white supremacy, but, in reality this assumed right should never have been there. In fact, supremacy of any racial element should never be allowed, for we all have a right to life and be respected in any country in which we reside. Colour, gender, religion, ethnicity and any other areas should not have a right to have power over others.

People have to learn to live together and that no one should have any supremacy over others.

The white settlers who populated what is now known as America, used their superior power to overcome the Native Americans and this again was not right, for the white settlers invaded any other country and did not respect the original inhabitants.

But this was at a time of Colonial power, when the Western Colonial powers used the superior fire power to invade and suppress the native in habitants of many countries, which they believed were inferior. But they were not inferior, but different and that should never be an excuse to discriminate against others.

With the forthcoming President Elect Joe Biden this is an opportunity for all Americans to show they can respect each other and be able to live together for the good of each other and America. In doing this they will set a good example to others in other counties of this World and by doing so, will show that America is Great, but not Great Again, for they were never Great only assumed Great due to the abuse of power they exerted on others.

The isolationism shown by Trump is and never was Great for America, but by showing respect for each other Great can be said.

Lets all embrace togetherness and do not look on the bad examples of the past on the way to live now. The past can never be changed, now and the future can be.

The day Donald Trump stopped being the leader of the free world ǀ View | Euronews


Donald Trump has been telling us since the first day of his presidency that the American president should no longer be the leader of the free world and that he personally has no interest in the job. This month, he made good on his words by unleashing chaos in northern Syria.

Trump’s actions empowered American adversaries ranging from the Islamic State militant group to Iran, Russia, Turkey and the regime of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad and abandoned the local Syrian forces, especially Kurdish ones, who fought side by side with U.S. troops against ISIS. In defending his decision, Trump insisted America has nothing at stake in Syria and can let others handle an Islamic State insurgency.

This ingratitude not only will do lasting damage to America’s reputation as a trustworthy ally, it also rejects the importance of American foreign goals more than seven decades in the making: containing an expansionist Russia; supporting allies, particularly those most likely to embrace democracy and human rights; and orienting U.S. policy away from the pre-WWII fiction that Americans at home will be safe from threats abroad — whether China, Iran or ISIS — if the U.S. would only retreat from the world.

Auntie Maxine Sees Path To Impeachment: Trump ‘Stepped Over The Line’ | News One


Now it seems the House of Representatives is finally catching up with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announcing a formal impeachment inquiry of Trump on Tuesday. The action comes after a whistleblower suggested that Trump tried to influence Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to launch an investigation on Joe Biden, who could possibly become Trump’s opponent in the 2020 U.S. presidential race.

As Auntie Maxine explained in a statement: “This action within itself — where the president is seeking the cooperation and assistance of a foreign government in uncovering dirt on his opponent — is unlawful, unconstitutional, and unpatriotic. I am elated that the Congress of the United States will move forward in an expedited manner to investigate and impeach this president.”

The impeachment inquiry against Trump comes after years of shady business, withholding of information and alleged collusion with Russia to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Waters explained in her statement, “Special Counsel Robert Mueller identified at least 10 instances of obstruction of justice by the president of the United States during the 2016 presidential campaign and through the course of the Russia investigation, and he furthered the scope of what we know about collusion and coordination between the Trump campaign, Trump’s allies, and the Kremlin in their efforts to undermine our election systems on Trump’s behalf.”

‘No one deserves to die over a video game’: survivors recall chaos of Florida shooting | US news | The Guardian


Survivors of a shooting at a video gamers’ competition in Florida in which three people died have told of chaotic scenes as those caught up in the violence trampled over others in panic as they tried to escape.

The dead included the gunman, David Katz, 24, a player on the gaming circuit who is believed to have been angry because he lost Sunday’s tournament. Eleven people were also wounded in the gunfire.

One witness who was present during the Madden NFL 19 video game tournament in Jacksonville said she saw Katz as he fired while walking backwards.

“We did see him, two hands on the gun, walking back, just popping rounds,” said Taylor Poindexter, 26, who had been ordering pizza at the bar when she heard the first shot at about 1.30pm.

“I was scared for my life and my boyfriend’s,” she told reporters, standing on crutches after spraining her ankle trying to escape.

Trump’s Treason by Father Complex – Foreign Policy


New York Sen. Chuck Schumer said Monday that “the only possible explanation” for U.S. President Donald Trump’s lavish endorsement of Russian President Vladimir Putin at their meeting in Helsinki is “the possibility that President Putin holds damaging information over President Trump.” He’s wrong. The much likelier explanation is that, perhaps for the first time in his life, Donald Trump feels a type of love.

Put yourself in Trump’s place for a moment. If you knew that a sword of Damocles was hanging over your head, would you demonstrate your own guilt with every word and deed? No, you would try to make good your debt to Putin without calling attention to that debt. You would criticize Putin publicly and do his bidding privately. And Putin would bank his winnings with a grim little smile and take the criticism. Instead, Trump has done the exact opposite, fawning over Putin in public while allowing sane people in his administration to protect the United States from its most determined adversary. This does Putin much less good.

It is, of course, altogether possible that Trump believes that he is innocent of a crime or impeachable offense of which he is, in fact, guilty. Since the U.S. president appears to be incapable of recognizing any fault or failure of his own, his own inner conviction tells us much less about actual facts than would be true with a normal person. He may very well have obstructed justice, for example by firing FBI Director James Comey last year, without having any belief that an investigation of his behavior would uncover guilt. Nevertheless, the extraordinary lengths to which he has gone to embrace Putin so obviously point to that guilt that even Trump would act otherwise unless some deep emotional commitment is at work.
