When I started writing on the gun issue in the late 1970's, the US was producing 3 million firearms a year. In the last few years, it was six million per year. Now, its six million in four months.

Christian Hope vs. Kung Flu Panic
...We see how decisively the self-understanding of the early Christians was shaped by their having received the gift of a trustworthy hope, when we compare the Christian life with life prior to faith, or with the situation of the followers of other religions. Paul reminds the Ephesians that before their encounter with Christ they were 'without hope and without God in the world.' (Eph. 2:12) Of course he knew that they had had gods, that they had had a religion, but their gods had proved questionable, and no hope emerged from their contradictory myths. Notwithstanding their gods, they were 'without God' and consequently found themselves in a dark world, facing a dark future. ......'How quickly we fall back from nothing to nothing': so says an epitaph of that period. ......we see in no uncertain terms the point Paul was making.....In the same vein he says ......'You must not grieve as others do who have no hope' (1 Thess 4:13) Here too we see as a distinguishing mark of the Christians the fact that they have a future.....

MKE to Save a Ton of Money
Organizers upended the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday, as they told state delegations not to travel to Milwaukee, moved the convention from Fiserv Forum to the nearby Wisconsin Center and added satellite events around the country.
Delegates will cast votes remotely, even for the presidential nomination in what is shaping up to be an increasingly virtual event. ...
Can you say "police overtime"? No Democrat convention, no police overtime.
Oh, yah, well, also no 50,000 delegates occupying hotels, eating at restaurants, drinking at bars, touring the harbor, the Harley museum, the Art museum, the Zoo, ........
But mostly eating, drinking, and sleeping in hotels.

Doh. Obama, the Seditionist
Newly released notes confirm President Barack Obama’s key role in surveillance and leak operation against Michael Flynn, the incoming Trump administration national security adviser. The handwritten notes, which were first disclosed in a federal court filing made by the Department of Justice on Tuesday, show President Obama himself personally directed former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates to investigate Flynn for having routine phone calls with a Russian counterpart. He also suggests they withhold information from President Trump and his key national security figures.

Connecting Anarchist Dots in Madison
...not every public figure opposed the destruction of the statues of the Capitol. Nada Elmikashfi, a Democratic candidate for state Senate in Madison, justified the destruction in a series of Twitter posts Tuesday night.
“Lady forward is the symbolic gatekeeper of an almost all white capitol that legislates in racism,” Elmikashfi posted. “Knocking it down made so many allies uncomfortable tonight, it showed the extent of white fragility. That is effective protest.”
“Fuck your statues,” Elmikashfi added in another Twitter post.
Elmikashfi is running to replace Sen. Fred Risser (D-Madison), the longest-serving member of the Wisconsin Legislature. Elmikashfi, running on the slogan of “a better Madison,” is currently a member of the Sustainable Madison Committee, appointed by Rhodes-Conway. She is a former member of Evers’ staff who served on the “Gubernatorial Appointments team” and a former legislative fellow for former Senate Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse)....
Shilling moves even higher on the Subversive Wisconsinites list, joining Evers, the girly-man Governor and Madison's Mayor-ette/Dyke Rhodes-Conway.
That's only part of the Anarchist Cabal out there. Plenty more on the faculty at UW and under rocks at various Lefty organizing groups such as One Wisconsin Now.

Today, president Trump’s new Nonimmigrant Proclamation extended the duration of the bar on immigrant visas through December 31, 2020 (with potential extensions thereafter) and created a new bar for those seeking to enter the U.S. in the following nonimmigrant visa categories: H-1B (specialty occupation), H-2B (temporary workers), L (intracompany transferees), and J (exchange visitors).
The new Nonimmigrant Proclamation will go into effect at 12:01 A.M. eastern daylight time on June 24, 2020 and be in force through December 31, 2020, with the potential for extensions thereafter....

"Contact Trace" a Big Fail in NYC
[T]he first statistics from the program, which began on June 1, indicate that tracers are often unable to locate infected people or gather information from them. Only 35 percent of the 5,347 city residents who tested positive or were presumed positive for Covid-19 in the program’s first two weeks gave information about close contacts to tracers, the city said in releasing the first statistics....
Perry N. Halkitis, dean of the School of Public Health at Rutgers University, which is guiding an effort to bring on thousands of tracers in New Jersey, called New York City’s 35 percent rate for eliciting contacts “very bad.” “For each person, you should be in touch with 75 percent of their contacts within a day,” he said....

This Quote May Be Fake
Kick Roberts' Ass. Please!
...The Constitution simply never gave the courts a veto power such as it gave to the president. An injunction is merely a form of relief granted in an individualized case or controversy. But if a judge is going to use that case to somehow illegally adjudicate a policy issue with no standing and issue a broad policy directive, even if he is correct on the merits, it has as much effect as a declaration from me or you or any private citizen absent the affirmative “aid” of the executive branch.
Implicit in Hamilton’s design is obviously the premise that the presidents and governors have the power not to grant aid to court rulings and, under the right circumstances, will use that power. Denying the judiciary the power of enforcement is not a bug in the system; it is a feature.
This is the core difference between judicial supremacy and judicial review. As President Lincoln observed during the sixth debate with Stephen Douglas during the 1858 race for Senate in Illinois, courts can adjudicate individual cases, but if they seek to use those rulings as a way of setting political policy across the nation, it should never be regarded as a “political rule” to be “binding on the members of Congress or the President to favor no measure that does not actually concur with the principles of that decision.”...
So. What Trump could and should do? Continue removing DACA children from the country. Roberts can pound sand.

Codevilla on Dissing SCOTUS
...The U.S. legal system exists to enable ordinary human beings to deal with reality in its own terms, including that all humans are equally human, and that humanity consists of males and females. Today, what amounts to a decree henceforth to call men women and women men lest we suffer legal consequences deserves disrespect just as much as Taney’s implication that blacks are not human. Both propositions are patently false as well as dysfunctional. Why should anybody respect them?
Today, President Trump has as much right as President Lincoln to order the executive branch to disregard the court’s opinion—in this instance, to continue to use the word “sex” as the dictionaries and biology define it. ...
This is what Lenny Leo and Heritage Foundation wanted.....so they'll get the respect they deserve, too.

Is Prejudice a Sin? Nope.
...According to the nature of the perfection which it limits, evil is metaphysical, physical, or moral. Metaphysical evil is not evil properly so called; it is but the negation of a greater good, or the limitation of finite beings by other finite beings. Physical evil deprives the subject affected by it of some natural good, and is adverse to the well-being of the subject, as pain and suffering. Moral evil is found only in intelligent beings; it deprives them of some moral good. Here we have to deal with moral evil only. This may be defined as a privation of conformity to right reason and to the law of God. Since the morality of a human act consists in its agreement or non-agreement with right reason and the eternal law, an act is good or evil in the moral order according as it involves this agreement or non-agreement. When the intelligent creature, knowing God and His law, deliberately refuses to obey, moral evil results....

Maybe Sen. Johnson Was Napping?
...Only three Republican senators — Utah’s Mike Lee, Missouri’s Josh Hawley, and Oklahoma’s Jim Lankford — rose to speak against the Equality Act. If not for them, the bill would have passed and would be on its way to the president’s desk....
...Mike Lee, in his remarks, pointed out that the Equality Act would demolish protection of women-only spaces like locker rooms and bathrooms, putting women who fear for their safety with biological males present there.
Josh Hawley pointed out that the Equality Act guts key provisions of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, amending it to not apply to SOGI. It would force faith-based adoption agencies out of business unless they conformed. It would force doctors and nurses to perform, or assist in performing, abortions — and give them no conscience right of refusal.
Jim Lankford said that this bill is not about finding a middle-ground compromise, but about one side imposing its views on the other. If you like women’s sports — high school, college, and professional — then you should know that if this bill passes, it would be a violation of federal civil rights law to prevent a biological male who identifies as female from competing in women’s leagues....[ed.: this last is likely the case already given Bostock.]
Zmirak's Very Good Question
Did the Federalist Society Help Launch a Legal Persecution of Christians?We all know, because the Federalist Society has been bragging about it endlessly, that they have vetted and pushed almost every Trump Fed-bench appointment.
And what Zmirak found out is that Gorsuch always was a Hack-in-Black on the Tranny question.
...I’ve come across some evidence that troubles me. Gorsuch’s views on
LGBT issues weren’t some nuclear secret, locked in a vault. They were on
clear display in a previous ruling he made back in 2008. That case, Kastl v. Maricopa County, concerned a man who claimed to be a woman, and demanded use of the ladies room. He was later fired.
While Kastl lost his case, the Ninth Circuit Court affirmed … exactly
what the Supreme Court ruled this week. That Title VII of the Civil
Rights Act applied to “transgender” issues, and protects such putative
“women.” Gorsuch signed that ruling, without dissenting from that
So Gorsuch was already on the record as agreeing with the wildest
theory advanced by the Obama administration and the LGBT lobby about the
secret meaning of the Civil Rights Act. Yet the Federalist Society
approved him as a top candidate for Trump to appoint to the court.
That leaves me with some questions. Did the Federalist Society simply miss that case?...
...a highly placed source in the Christian legal community told me that
Leonard Leo, co-chairman of the Federalist Society, was fully aware of
this ruling by Gorsuch. If that were true, it would mean that religious
liberty is not really that important to the Federalist Society....Ain't that wonderful?
Here's something even worse to contemplate: How many OTHER Fed-bench appointments pushed by Lenny Leo are opposed to the First Amendment?

Old White Mayor Gets Slapped in MKE
The Milwaukee Common Council voted unanimously Tuesday to send a series of Mayor Tom Barrett's cabinet-level appointments back to committee for further consideration.
Ald. Milele Coggs, who made the motion to further consider the appointments, said her intention was not to hold up the process for an extensive length of time but rather for the council to reshape the city's efforts to serve Milwaukee residents.
"The unrest we see across the globe is sparked by the death of an African American man, George Floyd in Minneapolis, who died as a white officer had his knee on his neck — or the many deaths of black people at the hands of those charged with the responsibility to protect and serve," she said. ...
That's a crock. Coggs has little use for Barrett and intends to use those hostages to obtain more Free Shit for "her constituents." And when Barrett reduces the Police Department by 10% and shoves that $50MM into the Free Shit accounts, Barrett will be told to bend over and take it again.
Then he'll decide to retire instead, and that was the whole point.
Yes, the Riots Are Organized
...She then abruptly said, “Why do you guys keep killing us?” I told her, “Excuse me?! I haven’t killed anyone…” ...At this point, I obviously knew she was referring to our Rules of Engagement (RoE) but it was obvious she was trying to provoke me. I tried to explain to her that what she was saying wasn’t true, but she kept interrupting me. Every time I’d try to speak, she’d raise her voice and interrupt me. As she continued to escalate, I recognized she was trying to provoke an exaggerated reaction out of me. I looked at her, shrugged, and proceeded to ignore her as I scanned the crowd.......I should start gambling because it didn’t take long for the African-American Soldiers to get singled out. I’m not going to repeat the hate, racism, and discontent directed at my Soldiers....
...I remember a plastic water bottle being thrown across the line by the “protesters” on my right side towards a Police Officer. Soon after, a bottle landed on the left side, right behind our line. I yelled out “SHIELDS UP!” Without hesitation, our ENTIRE LINE of Guardsman moved forward, and placed ourselves between the rioters and the Police Officers.
The “protesters” began throwing rocks, glass bottles, and chunks of concrete. I was out there ALL day. There wasn’t any construction going on. There wasn’t a pile of concrete or bricks anywhere to be seen. All I saw were younger people with heavy backpacks. THEY WERE GRABBING CHUNKS OF CONCRETE FROM THEIR BACKPACKS TO THROW AT US. Why is that important? Why would you carry chunks of concrete to a protest? Because you PLAN on using/throwing the concrete… When the concrete began to rain down on us, it came from ALL directions. What does that mean? It was COORDINATED. THEY PLANNED TO ASSAULT US WITH CONCRETE...

SCOTUS vs. Second Amendment
Justice Clarence Thomas suggested on Monday that the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) tolerates requirements on the exercise of the Second Amendment that it would not allow to be applied to abortion or free speech.......“One would think that such an onerous burden on a fundamental right would warrant this Court’s review,” Thomas said. “This Court would almost certainly review the constitutionality of a law requiring citizens to establish a justifiable need before exercising their free speech rights.”
“And it seems highly unlikely that the Court would allow a State to enforce a law requiring a woman to provide a justifiable need before seeking an abortion,” Thomas said. “But today, faced with a petition challenging just such a restriction on citizens’ Second Amendment rights, the Court simply looks the other way.”...
It is surmised that the Court's flaccid approach to the fundamental right of self-defense is due to the presence of Roberts. He's sort of a Coronavirus.

New Fusionism: Trump & Kushner
...Americans almost immediately became intimately acquainted with Rollins’ Koch-approved approach to crime. Behind the scenes, Rollins and Kushner continue to advise Trump to go soft on those engaged in violence across the country.
“The president has signaled that he would very much like to crack down on rioters,” [Tucker] Carlson said on June 1. “That is his instinct. If you’ve watched him you believe it. But every time he has been talked out of it by Jared Kushner and by aides that Kushner has hired and controlled.” Rollins is one of those aides for whom murder, mayhem, and madness constitute a small price to pay for the reforms that are in the interest of her backers....
Trump has an impending problem here. Either he is going to shove the rioters back to their cages--or put them INTO cages--his 'law and order' rhetoric will be less and less credible. Riots, looting, assaulting cops (and often, civilians) is NOT something Trump's voters will ignore for long.
But if Trump pushes hard, his daughter's hubby will be heartbroken or something.
We'll see very soon, won't we?

'Correct' Narrative on "Antifa" Not Quite Correct, but Trump-Hate Is There!
...Vysotsky said antifa is shorthand for anti-fascist, and its meaning is broad.
Fascism is a political philosophy that crystallized between World War I and World War II, Vysotsky said, particularly in Germany with Adolf Hitler and Italy with Benito Mussolini. In its simplest forms, it is a belief in the fundamental inequality between people, in a biological and social sense. ...
Not entirely correct. The Urban Dictionary uses Mussolini's own definition, which describes State Totalitarianism. Since Mussolini was a Fascist, he should know.
1."Everything in the state". The Government is supreme and the country is all-encompasing, and all within it must conform to the ruling body, often a dictator.
2."Nothing outside the state". The country must grow and the implied goal of any fascist nation is to rule the world, and have every human submit to the government.
3."Nothing against the state". Any type of questioning the government is not to be tolerated. If you do not see things our way, you are wrong. If you do not agree with the government, you cannot be allowed to live and taint the minds of the rest of the good citizens.
No racism there, is there? Now, then. Hitler's Socialists (Nazis) were racist and also found time to send a lot of Catholics to the gas chambers, too. So Merriam's definition includes racist, as does that of Cambridge. But Wiki's does not include "racism" as part of Fascism.
Like I said, not entirely correct.
But being semi-correct doesn't stop the Professor from using the Narrative's preferred language about Trump:
..."Every single comment Donald Trump has made about anti-fascism" is misleading or fundamentally incorrect, Vysotsky said.
For example, Trump on May 31 tweeted: "The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization."...
..."While some anti-fascists engage in actions that are considered to be violent, the scale and scope of that violence does not meet the criteria of what constitutes terrorists' violence," he said. ...
...Vysotsky said this actually has more to do with the ideological orientation of the people making the claim, than with those who identify as anti-fascist.
"They are seeking to discredit their political opponents, and they are unable to describe them on the merits of their beliefs and their claims, so they're trying to associate their political opponents with anti-social political activities," he said....
Is this guy telling us that the Democrat Party--Trump's "political opponents" are actually Antifa? Or that the Democrats ENDORSE Antifa? Or maybe the Professor doesn't understand the term "National Interest", which would excuse his moronic clam that 'it's all politics.'
He continues down the path of Professorial Lunacy!!
..."You're placing anti-fascists who have not killed anyone in the United States, not kidnapped anyone in the United States, have not engaged in any actions of large scale intentional property destruction in the name of anti-fascism in the United States, on par with the organizations that have murdered people, kidnapped people, blown up entire buildings, held entire populations in fear."...
Yah, ya'know, none of the Antifa activists in the US carry business cards with the Antifa office address, phone, fax, email, and website, Professor--so you have NO F***ing idea who is, and who is not, "Antifa" here, do you? Given that they are subversives, do you expect them to identify themselves as "Antifa" at trial? Or acknowledge that their money came from Communist and other anti-American sources?
As to "large-scale" destruction---how about if they burn down the block you live on? Would that be sufficient, or should they fire-bomb all of UW-M? How about all of ZIP Code 53211? Are we getting close to "large-scale," you twit?
There are some ideas so stupid that only intellectuals hold them, Professor. Thanks for proving the rule.

Catholic Throw-Down at Five (D) Candidates
...exhibiting an admirable spirit of charity, a group of Catholic leaders are addressing letters to five Democratic senators who face competitive races in November. The recently formed Catholic Coalition Against Religious Tests For Office is urging these senators to introduce a plank into the Democratic platform that would affirm their commitment to upholding the provisions of Article VI.
“The Democratic Party,” the letter notes, “now stands for abortion on demand paid for by taxpayers.” It also notes the continued harassment of Little Sisters of the Poor by many Democratic attorneys general. “You can imagine,” the letter admonishes the senators, “how this appears to the Catholic communities...
Why yes, one can imagine that rather easily.
...It goes without saying that in asking these five embattled senators to take a stand against religious bigotry, the Coalition is asking them to buck the party leadership, represented by Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) as well as by Feinstein, Harris, and Booker. But it would also materially increase their chances of victory in races that are sure to be hotly contested. The five senators are Gary Peters (Mich.), Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.), Tina Smith (Minn.), Mark Warner (Va.), and Doug Jones (Ala.). ...
Of course, this is a "friendly" reminder.
...Ed Martin, leader of the Coalition, notes that “the Democratic Party does not need to be struggling with the Catholic issue at the same time it is struggling with Defund the Police or a Green New Deal that their opposition will be saying is going to wipe out hundreds of thousands if not millions of jobs.” ...
It is interesting that Martin & Co. did NOT bring up the abortion issue; they chose to allow the candidates to hang themselves on anti-Catholicism instead.
Vicious anti-Catholic lesbian dolt Tammy Baldwin should pay attention.

Trump's Agenda for the Cities
...Trump affirmed that his administration would support the growth of businesses in black communities. “At the heart of this effort is increasing access to capital for small businesses, and that’s with minority owners in black communities. And we’re going to get it done, and it should have been done a long time ago. It’s been very difficult — very, very difficult for some people. It’s been unfairly difficult,” he insisted. ......“Second, we are confronting the healthcare disparities, including addressing chronic conditions and investing substantial sums in minority-serving medical institutions. We have medical institutions in some areas of our country that are a disgrace. I was going to say ‘not up to standard.’ They’re much worse than ‘not up to standard.’ They’re a disgrace. We’ll take care of it.”......“Third, we’re working to finalize an executive order that will encourage police departments nationwide to meet the most current professional standards for the use of force, including tactics for de-escalation.”...
...“And, fourth, we’re renewing our call on Congress to finally enact school choice now. School choice is a big deal because access to education is the civil rights issue of our time. And I’ve heard that for the last, I would say, year. But it really is; it’s the civil rights issue of our time. When you can have children go to a school where their parents want them to go.”...
Fauci the Domestic Terrorist
...He has spent his professional career warning of nightmare scenarios, many which never materialized.Nobody did more to kick off the U.S. AIDS alarm than Fauci, who was sole author of a 1983 piece in the prestigious JAMA in which he declared the disease might be transmissible by “routine close contact, as within a family household.”...
...In 1987, columnist George Will asserted on TV that the heterosexual AIDS threat was overstated. “That’s not correct,” Fauci protested, followed by a prediction that the percentage of AIDS cases contracted via heterosexual transmission (then at 4%) would rise to 10% by 1991. That rate never rose above 4%. ...
...he declared 16 years ago that we’re “due” for “massive person-to-person” spread of Avian flu H5N1. How massive? While Fauci didn’t define “massive,” according to one estimate by a CDC modeler “even in the best-case scenarios” it would “cause 2 to 7 million deaths” worldwide....
...More recently, Fauci sounded the threat of the Zika virus, demanding billions more in taxpayer funds. It barely touched two U.S. states before burning out on its own. ...
...Fauci said the virus met all four criteria for a nightmare scenario: It is new, respiratory-borne, easily transmissible, and has a significant degree of illness or mortality.
Fauci also said the virus surprised him with “how rapidly it just took over the planet.” However, it appears to spread with the same speed as seasonal flu, which covers the world map annually. And, of course, seasonal flu is also respiratory and has significant mortality....
A Letter to Your Bishop
Dear Arch/Bishop XYZIn the last several days Abp. Vigano has issued two statements: the letter sent to the President, and another letter which puts into very serious question the 'ecumenical' position of the Second Vatican Council. Further, that the "hermeneutic of continuity" simply breaks down when attempting to reconcile prior Church dogma with the Council's statement. Along the way, +Vigano also expresses serious reservations about the Ordinary Form of the Mass.Both of these letters are important, to say the least.The statement concerning ecumenism and the Mass is probably of more immediate interest to Catholics. Will the Arch/Diocese be sponsoring a discussion of this document in the near future so that Catholics know with certainty the dogmatic teaching of the Church on these matters?
Will that be followed--before the election--with a discussion of his letter to President Trump? Catholics expect an exposition of the Catholic position on the matters raised by +Vigano, of course, and I'm certain that any discussion will conform precisely to Catholic teaching, right?
We look forward to your timely response!!Sincerely,
