President Joe Biden makes me laugh. On the one hand, his administration labels the Jan. 6 protests as an insurrection. Then, when trying to eliminate the Second Amendment, Biden claims that no one can defeat the American government without fighter jets and nuclear weapons.

Well, which is it, Joe?

The facts demonstrate that not a single protestor had a weapon on Jan. 6, unlike many of the “peaceful” protestors that destroyed tens of billions of dollars of private property in democratically run cities across the country last year.

In trying to destroy the Second Amendment, our president showed us how little he knows about why America's Founders created the Second Amendment.

"Biden’s false claim that the 2nd Amendment bans cannon ownership"

“And I might add: The Second Amendment, from the day it was passed, limited the type of people who could own a gun and what type of weapon you could own. You couldn’t buy a cannon.” — [Joe] Biden, remarks on gun violence, June 23, 2021

Thanks, Katrina, for sharing the facts.

Robert Braeking

Actually, the Jan 6 security breach at the Capitol was orchestrated by government operatives. It appears that those who were not charged, despite clear video evidence, worked for the government.

Paula Flinn

Gohmert. TX, Jim Jordan OH, Matt Gaetz. FL,

Boebert. CO, Taylor Green GA, Paul Gosar. AZ,

Andy Biggs. AZ, all gave tours on January 5th.

They showed people where Congress would be certifying the electoral votes and where certain offices were.

Carlos Ponce

Even Snopes writes that is unproven, Paula.

Robert Braeking

Snopes? Really Carlos.

Gary Scoggin

Robert, you are correct. These government operatives included Congressman Mo Brooks and even the President himself.

Carlos Ponce

Gary Scoggin, Congressman Brooks was on the House floor. President Trump was in the White House. That doesn't fit your fictitious scenario.

Gary Miller

Robert> Recent reports are that 20 or more FBI agents were involved. Some were vidioed urging peaceful rallyiers to break things. Information MSM will not cover.

Gary Scoggin

“Recent reports” - from a credible source? And by the way, it was covered on Fox which is as MSM as they come.

George Laiacona

Let’s face the truth, the 18th century version of the 2nd Amendment is surely outdated. Here we are in the 21st century still living be the fear of a British Invasion. We have more than sufficient police protection except for the 4 minutes it takes for officers to reach our door step. Why do we need military assault weapons to protect ourselves. Surely these weapons can’t be used for sport hunting! The 2nd Amendment needs to be updated to represent today’s atmosphere. Other Amendments have surfaced in the past to meet the needs of the time , why not this one?

Gary Miller

George> Those weapons have become a favorite hunting tool and we need to be able to defend the country from a rougue government. Our Military will protect us from a forighn attack.

Carlos Ponce

"Other Amendments have surfaced in the past to meet the needs of the time , why not this one?" George Laiacona, submit your proposed Constitutional amendment here and we will let you know if it is viable.

Robert Braeking

George, The second amendment's purpose is to keep the government in fear of the people. Trouble is that modern howitzers and fighter jets are not affordable for the common man.

Thomas Carpenter

Right wing fascist MAGA facts don't match up with reality concerning the traitors who stormed the Capitol. They had weapons and used them. Five people are dead because of that terrorist action. That "normal day" at the Capitol resulted in more than 500 terrorists arrested, more than 100 traitors sitting behind bars right now, and more to be arrested. Spin it any way you want it, but clinging to a false narrative doesn't change facts.

Gary Miller

Thomas> You don't match up with facts. None of the ralliers were armed, the only person killed was a woman shot by a Capital cop. Three others died of natural causes. None of the people arrested are in jail. They pled Guilty of trespassing, paid their fine and went home. Your rant is to me evidence you are a terrorist and traitor yourself. Using lies to stir up trouble.

Gary Scoggin

Marjorie Taylor Greene said in an interview yesterday that some of the Capitol protesters (i.e., traitors) were still in jail in solitary confinement. Was she wrong?

Charles Douglas

I thought a traitor was someone who sided with and who hates the country they live in like the Radical LEFT Democrats exemplifies with their worship of Red China and XI JINPING! I will bet XI JINPING never has to shower! Why would he when he has half the American population kissing his rear 24/7?

Lolo. Heck, there has been one or two of them who have admitted to being a traitor for "RED CHINA"...on this forum!!!!! I could call them out, but they know who they are, and all the rest are complicit in their Chinese treachery to this great country which they are busy destroying with open borders, race baiting, racism rhetoric, racial division, from farming, to schools curriculums, in the ghettos, to the military! This is all we hear about today is RACE!

We hear around the clock how bad SLAVES were treated back in the day, but it was the Democrats who started slavery, and who maintained it! It was the Democrats who perpetuated Segregation, and Jim Crow, and now the Democrats has the biggest, racist, minority hating, brain dead, President to ever be "manipulated" into the White House! He came in killing good jobs, opening up the borders and the prison gates, allowing hardened, dangerous criminals to be loosed as praditors on decent citizens all over this nation while simultaneously trying to destroy the second Amendment and take decent citizen's guns! He came in being owned and ruled by a sorry[censored] LEFTIST "JUNTA"..whose policies includes "America" being last in everything, stripped of it's wealth, Police departments are being defunded and tore-down all over America, as a brown-nose effort to gain and maintain minority support, and to keep them under control!

These kinds of things are what Janurary 6th was all about and they know it! Calling White students inherently racist, .... then to me that means their counterparts in the adult Whites who are saying these things are RACIST TOO! They are also insisting that Minorities are inherently inferior!

That is a lie from the belly of Hell and they know this too, but it works on the stupid, who dwells and exists on handouts and government subsidies! I am simply tired of their LEFTIST lies, and it is why I drove my sons to go out and compete in everything, in sports and education and they did! They competed and achieved nationwide notoriety, which makes that inferiority lie, null and void and without merit! What kind of individuals would do these things and claim to be Christian or American?

Carlos Ponce

Thomas Carpenter posts, "Five people are dead because of that terrorist action. "

Only one died after being shot by Capitol Hill police.

The other four (including the officer) died from NATURAL CAUSES.

Gary Scoggin

So that makes the actions of the Capitol invaders okay then, correct?

Carlos Ponce

How many have been sentenced for INSURRECTION, Gary Scoggin????

Answer: NONE.

Judges have been finding them guilty of TRESPASSING. And one grandmother was found guilty of .... PARADING![scared]

Gary Scoggin

Carlos, I didn’t expect you to answer my question as you never do. We’re the people that stormed the Capitol on January 6th right or wrong? Let’s see if you have the courage to answer a direct question.

Carlos Ponce

If Gary Scoggin walked up the Capitol and the Capitol Police invited you in and you entered are you staging an insurrection?

Gary Scoggin

Assuming that’s what’s happened, which it didn’t, once I went past the established lines, yes, it’s an insurrection.

I am amazed by your ability to believe an evolving and fictional reality. And you still didn’t answer my question, as I expected. You are afraid to do so. Are you content with being a coward? Does it make your former students proud of having been in your class?

Carlos Ponce

It was no insurrection.

Gary Scoggin

Then what was it?

Carlos Ponce

A set up.

Gary Scoggin

A hockey stick or a flag pole is a weapon if you beat someone over the head with it.

Carlos Ponce

The man with the hockey stick was Michael Joseph Foy, a former US Marine who suffered with PTSD, alcoholism, and depression. I'm glad the Capitol Hill Police shoot him like they shot and killed another US Veteran.

Gary Scoggin

He was a traitor who beat a law enforcement officer. Do you still back the blue?

Carlos Ponce

His parents have a "Back the Blue" yard sign. Do you?

Gary Scoggin

His parents may have one, but that is irrelevant. He intentionally beat a policeman. He is a criminal and a traitor.

Carlos Ponce

Hopefully his mental condition will be addressed. Or do you think our veterans should be tossed aside once their tour of duty is over?

Ted Gillis

There is no truth to the story that FBI agents posed as insurrectionists at the capital on Jan 6th, Gary. Wishing it so, does not make it so.

Try again.

Carlos Ponce

The video shows otherwise, Ted. I'd provide a link but it seems you have a reluctance or inability to open one.

Gary Scoggin

You seem to have the inability to provide one.

Carlos Ponce

It's easy to find. Perhaps you need to sign up for help from the Boys and Girls Clubs for JJ Watts' technology lab. ....... But I think you're a little too old.

Charles Douglas

Now some individual stands in public on an Olympic stand in front of the world, then turn her back on the American flag, while the National Anthem was playing! This individual also pulled a T-shirt over her head! I along with many living and dead patriots served and was ready to die for that flag, and to preserve it along with that Anthem which describes and honors it... to our last breath if we had to! Many of us perished doing it TOO!

If you don't like America or want to hear that Anthem, or see that waving flag, DONT GO WHERE YOU KNOW IT WILL BE PLAYED!!!!!!! This country has been good to me and my family, and God Almighty has TOO! They gave me all I had a right to expect, .....an opportunity to measure up, and to compete by praying, working hard, and growing in faith, for you cannot please GOD WITHOUT FAITH! ( Hebrews 11:6 ). When man closed one door GOD opened a better one!

Jim Crow, could not stop me, discrimination could not stop me, racism did not stop me, and the Viet Cong could not either! With Christ I can do and accomplish all I want to, by working hard, and believing by faith! Whatever I set my mind to do I did, and so did the children I raised!

God is my "Source," and everything and everybody else can only rise to be a "Re-Source." "God is Jehova Jireh" ( God my Provider )...and everything and everybody else can only rise to become "Provisions" on my behalf! [wink]
