Governor John Kasich never was a Conservative

It is all about him, not about liberty or the Constitution, or American ideals like self-defense, and, apparently due process.

With his governorship ending Jan. 13, Kasich also signaled he would veto a gun bill headed to his desk, even after majority Republican lawmakers stripped out the controversial stand-your-ground provision that would have removed the duty to retreat unless there was no alternative to using lethal force in self-defense. Instead, he is getting a bill that primarily only changes the burden of proof from the defendant to the prosecution if force is used.

“That somehow makes the bill OK? I didn’t get that,” Kasich said. “Just with stand-your-ground being gone, how about the rest of the bill?

“When you start shifting the burden (of proof) away from somebody who does the shooting to now a prosecutor, that’s a change. I don’t know, why did they want to change that? What’s the purpose of it?”

It is called due process there Governor Gun Control. 

Does gun control really help, lower violent crime?

In a word, NO!

Of course, watch the meltdown when you point out that the state with the most strict gun control had it’s already high homicide rate jump up nearly 18 percent from 2014 to 2016.

California, a state with every gun control imaginable, witnessed an 18 percent rise in firearm homicides from 2014 to 2016.

This rise in firearm homicides comes despite the fact that Democrats, gun control groups, and the establishment media constantly claim that states with the strictest gun controls see lower rates of violence and death.

Despite all the stringent gun controls a bill filed by Assemblyman Marc Levine (CA-D-10) admits California firearm homicides were up between from 2014 to 2016. The bill says, “Although California has the toughest gun laws in the nation, more effort is necessary to curtail gun violence. The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation found that from 2014 to 2016 gun homicides increased 18 percent.” In light of this gun control failure the language of the bill goes on to suggest more gun control.

Yet the Cult of Gun Control will deny this reality and push on, because armed, law-abiding Americans trigger them!

British Millionaire Admits To Brutally Killing Girlfriend During Cocaine-Fuelled S&M Sex Session – Daily Mail

A multimillionaire property tycoon has admitted killing his girlfriend during a kinky alcohol and drug-fuelled S&M sex session at their home. John Broadhurst, 40, pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Natalie Connolly, 26, part way through his murder trial at Birmingham Crown Court.

The businessman, of Wolverley, Worcestershire, had denied battering his partner of six months to death and claimed he had only hurt her ‘within the boundaries of her masochistic desires.’

Miss Connolly was discovered wearing only a black skirt which was pulled up to her waist at the couple’s £600,000 home in Kinver, West Midlands on December 18 2016.

Jurors were told how Broadhurst may have wanted to ‘teach Natalie a lesson’ after finding out she had been sending topless pictures to another man on social media. The mother-of-one was killed after the couple had spent a day drinking alcohol and taking cocaine before engaging in ‘rough sex’…

Shepherd’s Costume Sold On Amazon Includes ‘Sheep Sex Doll’ – New York Post

A mortified mom sent her 5-year-old to his school’s Nativity play with a shepherd costume she bought online before she realized it came with a blow-up sheep sex doll.

Helen Cox bought son Alfie the $21.65 costume on Amazon for his school Nativity play, and he was delighted it came with a free blow-up sheep. But the mom of two was puzzled when a teacher told Alfie to take the sheep home – until she blew it up and found it had a huge hole in its bottom as well as red lips and eyelashes.

Cox, 46, found the exact same sheep was on sale as a “stag night bonkin’ sheep” and is now devising a way to steal it away from unaware Alfie.

Cox, a psychology student from Scotland, said: “He’s probably in his room right now stuffing Lego in the hole.”

“I just can’t believe it. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry! How am I going to explain this to his teachers?…

A chastened French President Emmanuel Macron surrendered Monday to the demands of protesters who have shut down much of the country over the past month, offering wage hikes and tax cuts starting next year while signaling a retreat from his greater plan to overhaul France’s heavily regulated economy and generous social welfare system.

Addressing the nation on television after weeks of seclusion, Mr. Macron called the protesters’ grievances “deep and in many ways legitimate” and asked businesses to help quell their anger.

“I would ask all employers who can, pay an end-of-year bonus to their employees,” said Mr. Macron, who just 19 months ago won an overwhelming election victory…

U.S. Steel Industry Booming After Trump’s Tariffs – Washington Examiner

U.S. steel mills have seen almost a 5 percent jump in shipments so far this year, a sign that it’s benefiting from stiff 25 percent tariffs on imports the Trump administration imposed last year.

The American Iron and Steel Institute reported Monday that U.S. mills shipped 8.1 million tons in October, up 4.6 percent from the previous month and up 6 percent from the same period last year. So far this year, the industry has shipped 79.6 million net tons, 4.6 percent more than it had by this point last year.

AISI spokesman Jake Murphy told the Washington Examiner that domestic steel use has increased 1.4 percent so far in 2018, and that “Section 232 has played a crucial role as well,” referring to section of trade law used by the Trump administration to justify the tariffs.

According to U.S. Census Bureau data, U.S. imports of steel mill products declined 11 percent during the first 10 months of 2018 compared to the same period in 2017…

MAGA Update: 3.5 Million People Drop Off Food Stamps Under Trump – Breitbart

He teaches “ethics” at William & Mary, but it is hard to imagine a more unethical FBI director than one who signs off on the most invasive spying warrants imaginable without bothering to verify them, or even know their rationale.

That came out in his shameless testimony last Friday in closed session with Congress. It was clear from his slipshod testimony that he hadn’t even read the FISA warrants he approved. He breezily acknowledged that the Steele dossier, which formed the basis of the alleged justification for spying on Trump officials, was unverified…

Judge Rules Americans Can Secretly Record Public Officials In Victory For Project Veritas – Washington Times

A federal judge ruled Monday that Americans have a right to secretly record their public officials, including police, when they are engaged in their government duties.

U.S. District Chief Judge Patti B. Saris said a Massachusetts law banning secret recordings violates the First Amendment when it comes to government employees, rejecting the state’s claims that officials need some space to be able to operate without having to worry about being monitored.

“This is not to say that police and government officials have no privacy interests,” she wrote. “However, the diminished privacy interests of government officials performing their duties in public must be balanced by the First Amendment interest in newsgathering and information-dissemination.”

She ruled in favor of two sets of plaintiffs, one of which regularly livestreamed video of police officers performing their duties, and the other James O’Keefe, whose Project Veritas specializes in catching public policy figures saying embarrassing things…

Winning: U.S. Ends Reliance On Foreign Oil For First Time In 75 Years – Daily Wire

For the first time in 75 years, the United States exported more oil than it imported, achieving a pledge from President Trump that America can become “energy independence.”

While the U.S. has been a net oil importer since 1949, over the final week of November, U.S. net imports of crude oil and petroleum products fell to minus 211,000 barrels per day (bpd) – which means America exported more than it imported, according to data from U.S. Energy Information and Administration.

Oil production has been booming in the U.S. as the shale revolution swept the nation. America is now the world’s largest producer of petroleum, passing Russia and Saudi Arabia. As the U.S. oil boom spread, the power of OPEC was reduced and gas prices in the U.S. have dropped from the $4+ highs under former president Barack Obama.

Net imports peaked in 2005, topping 14 million bpd, but in the last few months, the U.S. has imported an average of 2 million bpd…

Italian Lawmakers Busted Having Sex In Parliament Bathroom – Zero Hedge

The tension in Rome may have lessened since the Italian leadership opted to try and work with the EU by lowering their projected 2019 budget deficit to 2%, but that doesn’t mean passions aren’t still running high in the Chamber of Deputies.

Two mystery MPs in the Italian parliament were reportedly busted having a quickie in a bathroom in the Chamber of Deputies after someone secretly recorded, according to Italian media outlets.

The video, captured on a smartphone, reportedly involved an MP from the Five Star Movement and another from the League – which, as RT joked, suggests that the coalition partners aren’t only close in a professional sense.

Il Giornale, the Italian newspaper that broke the story, opted not to disclose the identities of the two MPs.

“Obviously we know their names. We are not releasing them because privacy is a right,” the paper said.

Witnesses said that panic ensued when an acrid smell started permeating the disco between midnight and 1 a.m. local time, according to Italian news agencies. Some compared it to mace or pepper spray, though police officials said they were not ready to confirm those details.
