Don’t Waste Your Time (Or Money) On the Newsom Recall

Brian Brady Brian Brady 2 Comments

Last week, I reported that Kevin Faulconer was running for Governor, presumably positioning himself as the Republican alternative if the #RecallNewsom effort is successful.  I also disclosed that I contributed to his campaign; that was a waste of money. The recall effort is a long shot because Democrats are united and Republican candidates usually weaken one another in primaries.  In …

Meet H.R. 127, also known as the Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act. This grotesque piece of anti-Second Amendment (2A) legislation was introduced in the House in January by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX). This bill effectively destroys our 2A protected rights, but the real purpose of H.R. 127 is to lay the foundation for that holy grail of …

One of the latest talking points of the left is the threat of American veterans becoming domestic terrorists.

Am I A Nazi? Are You?

In the twisted little mind of Nathan Fletcher, people who question the monstrously poor job Gavin Newsom is doing and are following the lawful, constitutional process of seeking to have him recalled are neo-Nazis. Fletcher’s comments are sadly but one example in a string of similar comments from extreme left wing (Democrat) politicians. So why is anyone that disagrees with …

With the start of the 117th U.S. Congress, the Democrats wasted no time firing the first shots in their war on the Second Amendment (2A) and the American people.
