Last Friday the President authorized the armed forces to take out a terrorist. They found out the Iranian general a person that has been labeled a terrorist by the international body NATO, was flying into Iraq. They used a unmanned drone to hit his car and killed him and three other men riding with him.
A few days later, Iran fired ten to fifteen missles at U.S. air bases in Iraq. They failed to hit anything of importance or kill anyone at that time. EXCEPT! They somehow shot down a passenger plane from Ukraine. Killing 176 souls. Now you have to ask yourself did they target this plane by mistake? Did someone at the controls say I want to shot something. Did someone have a itchy trigger finger? Was the Russian anti aircraft system on automatic? We may never know as the Iranian government is being quiet about it all. Not even turning over the black boxes to investigators.
It would have been prudent to have picked up the phone and told the control tower to hold all flights for a couple of hours. Everything that happened that night makes Iran look like bumbling idiots. This is a military force the world is suppose to be afraid of? If I were flying over or to their country I would be.
Experts on both sides are going to pay attention to 2020 Democratic candidates and their stance on the Hyde Amendment, which bars federal funding for abortions except in cases of rape or incest or when the life of the person giving birth is at risk. THE PERSON? Why not the woman? Men can’t have babies. This is the political correctness that is another part of the problem we have but back to the abortion issue.
Americans don’t like the thought of killing children but that is exactly what abortion does. Why people can’t see that is beyond me. I think they do see it, it’s just that if having a baby is inconvenient for them this is the solution.
Today women and men can take multiple methods to prevent pregnancy. Most of them are free! So why do women not take control before sex? Why after the fact when they find out they are pregnant is abortion ok? This is not just a issue for women although they are the ones that have to carry the baby to term and in a lot of cases have to raise the child alone. The men have to stop thinking with their dicks and realize they have skin in the game also. If you help bring a child into this world your just as much responsible as the woman. Man up and take care of your child. If you don’t want kids take care of that before you have sex.
A 36 year old male and two females 20 and 18 got cought. My first thought was human smuggling. You can tell how tall the wall is and they had to rescue these three people from the top. People here in the US that say walls don’t work, I would say you don’t know what your talking about.

So here are some facts that will make a few people very angry!
The typical response from our friends on the left will be, “Yeah BUT”.
STATS ON GUN VIOLENCE
Interesting statistics. This jives with the research of Prof. Lott at the University of Chicago, who is a noted expert on gun laws and stats.
Here are some facts.
There are 30,000 gun related death s per year by firearms, and this number is not disputed. The U.S. population is 324,059,091 as of June 22, 2016. Do the math: 0.00925% of the population dies from gun related actions each year. Statistically speaking, this is insignificant! What is never told, however, is a breakdown of those 30,000 deaths, to put them in perspective as compared to other causes of death:
It surprises me they (the Dems) can get up in the morning and look at themselves in the mirror. Its scary they actually believe what they are saying. I pray the American people show them they are not right they are not patriots and their ideas are actually anti American.
In a almost unanimous voice Congress passed a bipartisan bill called the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. Wednesday President Trump signed it.
Trump’s signing of the act comes just days after pro-democracy candidates in Hong Kong won 269 out of 452 seats in 18 district council races, while pro-Beijing forces, who previously held 73 percent of the seats, won only 30. Voters came out in droves with a 71 percent turnout — up from 47 percent four years ago in the same elections, according to the Electoral Affairs Commission.

From half a world away my thoughts are with the people in Hong Kong that are standing up to the Chinese government. To have your freedom taken by a government that wants to put them under communism. It makes me think that we as Americans take our freedom for-granted. The people of Hong Kong have umbrellas to defend themselves with and sometimes bottles filled with gas or some other form of combustible. Against police and soldiers with guns.
China, with close to a billion and a half people could be a global power if the government was not so oppressive. Hong Kong along with Taiwan are bucking the China government and I am not sure how it will turn out. Will the people of China let the government use brutal force to crack down on the people of Hong Kong. Does China want another Tiananmen Square, while the world watches. Or will the people rise up and force the leader to change course.
Every life lost due to a shooting, any shooting is tragic. But why go after the right to defend yourself. Why is the left so intent on taking away the vast majority of law abiding citizens 2A rights? There are many many more deaths that are commited each year than those by guns. Drug overdose, medical malpractice, car accidents to name a few. I won’t even get into abortion. But why is the gun violence so more front and center and so much more publicity by the MSM and our Democratic and sadly some Republican law makers? Well if you were to listen to the People running for President on the Dem side you would know. Its a inch by inch regulation by regulation chip by chip infringement of yours and mine 2A Freedom. Until it gets to the point that they say you know what you don’t need a gun anymore you need to turn them in.
