For the first time, a judge has denied a request to take away a man’s guns under Colorado’s new red flag law. A Limon woman claimed a man who she had a relationship with threatened her with a gun and filed the request. Since the law took effect, the red flag law has had many gun owners seeing red. At least four requests have been filed since the first of 2020; CBS4 is aware of them being filed in Denver, in Larimer County and this one — in Lincoln County. Many gun owners, like Jak Gruenberg, despise it. “Red flag laws just allow for harassment of legal gun owners,” he said. The law allows guns to be taken away from those who present a danger to themselves or others. The decision is up to a judge. A woman wrote she was getting “verbal and physical threats” with a handgun from the man identified in the order. She said he had a problem with alcohol and marijuana. The judge denied the request to take his guns. “I think it’s a good thing. I think any other new law you’re going to have a lot of case law to determine exactly where the lines are,” said Gruenberg, a gun owner not associated with the case. Lincoln County is one of the many counties that has indicated it would not honor the red flag law.
This so-called “red flag law” in Colorado (and in other states) is brazenly unconstitutional on its face. And, the fact that some local judge can arbitrarily make the decision as to whether or not they’ll sign an order to remove someone’s guns without due process should have every law-abiding gun owner in Colorado (and other states that have similar laws) terrified. Anybody can just go into a police station and say, “so and so scares me and I think he should have his guns taken away,” and then it goes to some local judge who makes the arbitrary decision. Crazy!! This is the kinda crap that happens when Democrats are in power. The raise your taxes, increase the size and scope of government, and take away your freedoms. Unreal…

Former Secretary of State John Kerry faced a question about his role in releasing billions of dollars to Iran during the Obama administration and responded by first attacking President Trump’s criticism of the move. President Trump has claimed that Iran’s recent aggression against the U.S. in Iraq was funded by $150 billion that the Obama administration gave to Iran. Kerry has insisted that was false, although in the past he recognized that at least some of the money – which was frozen due to sanctions and held in banks around the world before being released at roughly the same time the Iran nuclear deal was made – would end up in the hands of terrorists. “I think that some of it will end up in the hands of the IRGC or other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists,” Kerry told CNBC in 2016. When asked by Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation” why he believed this was a worthwhile risk when releasing the money, Kerry attacked the president rather than answer the question. “You know that the president’s tweet is a lie,” Kerry told host Margaret Brennan. “And the president tweeted this morning, because I am coming on the show and he knew you’d ask me the question or he’d push you in a place where you did ask the question. You and the media, I think, need to call a lie a lie.” Brennan immediately reminded him that she asked the same question in 2015. Kerry continued, saying that what he meant was that “clearly some money from the budget of Iran is going to go to the IRGC.” He then said that, contrary to what President Trump claims ”his own defense intelligence agency in 2017 testified to the Congress that very, very little money actually went to the IRGC at all.” Kerry did not explain his rationale for releasing the money at the time, before he knew where the funds would end up.
And to think this duplicitous, self-serving tool almost became President… He and Obama orchestrated that more than $1 BILLION ransom deal with Iran during Obama’s administration.. And when confronted by a mainstream media journalist, Kerry pivots and somehow blames Trump, who wasn’t President at the time; Obama was.
Here in Washington, our leaders spent the week focused on the Middle East, on Iran. But out there and the rest of the country, there are plenty of more pressing concerns — tangible concerns. For example, many of our cities are starting to fail. Infrastructure is aging; both crime and the cost of living are surging, and left-wing prosecutors have stopped enforcing the law. But for the leading Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden of Delaware, none of these problems matches what he believes is the greatest crisis of all — America isn’t importing enough desperately poor people. That’s his position. In a tweet on January 5, Biden lashed out at President Trump for his immigration policies: “Our Statue of Liberty invites in the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Donald Trump has slammed the door in the face of families fleeing persecution and violence.” What a moralizer that Joe Biden is. Just a few months ago, Biden vowed that when he becomes president he’ll admit two million poor immigrants overnight, and then increase that number from there. Joe Biden, “We could afford to take in a heartbeat another two million people. The idea that a country of 330 million people cannot absorb people who are in desperate need and who are justifiably fleeing oppression is absolutely bizarre. Absolutely bizarre. I would also move to increase the total number of immigrants able to come to the United States.” How many of those immigrants will be staying at Joe Biden’s house? At Joe Biden’s expense? Zero. Of course, Biden’s view is that our chief mission as a nation is to admit as many poor people as we can possibly can. The less impressive their country of origin, the less they’re able to contribute to this country, the more we want them. You are rich, they are poor, therefore you must give them money, the right to vote, a permanent home. And once you’ve done that, then repeat it. Biden claims that’s our moral duty, and that Donald Trump and anyone else who shirks that duty is a racist. But is Trump shirking that duty? Is the basic claim even true? It’s worth assessing. There is so much lying. So once again, we go to the numbers, and here’s what they are. From October 2018 to September 2019, the Border Patrol apprehended 977,000 people at the U.S.-Mexico border. That’s the highest total in more than a decade and more than the previous two years combined. Now keep in mind that’s just the people being caught at the southern border. Many more are getting through without being caught, of course, and then there are the tens or hundreds of thousands of others who enter legally but then overstay their visas. These illegal immigrants are tethering themselves here with millions of anchor babies. It’s not a talking point. It’s a fact. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, for example, 372,000 children of illegal aliens were born in this country just last year. Every one of them is now an American citizen, and their parents are benefiting from a whole suite of benefits — food stamps, Medicaid, other programs. And, of course, they won’t be deported now. Wonder how we got 22 million illegal immigrants? That’s how. So by any actual measure, by the data, illegal immigration is worse than it has been in a long time. But for Joe Biden, it’s still not enough. 22 million illegals? Why not 30 million or 50 million? And every one of them gets free health care paid for by you. That’s his promise. Is your country really so spectacularly rich that we can afford this? And, of course, you know the answer. We’re not a rich country. We are more than $20 trillion in debt. Our middle class is dying, in part because immigrants are willing to work for less and have driven down wages. — This doesn’t make the immigrants bad. They’re coming from incredibly poor places with totally different standards of living. But it’s an economic fact that when you flood the labor pool with people willing to work for less, wages go down. And that’s been going on for decades. Not surprisingly, America’s most immigrant-heavy state, California, is also the most impoverished. Many people born in California can’t leave quickly enough. Just ask Idaho and Texas. But Joe Biden says we need more. According to Biden, our country is a sanctuary — must be a sanctuary — for those fleeing violence. But because Joe Biden knows nothing, he is not aware that some of America’s cities are deadlier than the places those people are fleeing from. For example, El Salvador. One-third of all living El Salvadorans live in this country now. But here are the numbers: El Salvador has 50 murders per 100,00 people. Last year, Baltimore — not a country, the city in Maryland — Baltimore had 51 per 100,00. In other words, it is more dangerous than El Salvador. Baltimore clearly hasn’t benefited — at all — from America’s policy of unlimited immigration. But you know, none of this matters because for people like Joe Biden and the rest of this country’s ruling class. Helping American citizens stopped being the point a long time ago. The point is getting reelected and feeling virtuous.
Yeah.. No kidding! Thanks to veteran journalist Tucker Carlson for that outstanding op/ed. It’s refreshing for someone like Tucker, who was at CNN, then MSNBC before landing at Fox News, actually call out the real numbers of illegal aliens in this country; over
22 MILLION. We’ve been saying that here at The Daily Buzz for almost 6 years, while the Democrats and the dominantly liberal mainstream media have used the figure of 11 million; a figure they’ve used for over 20 years, and yet somehow that number hasn’t changed in that time, because it would undermine their false narrative, as it relates to the illegal immigration crisis in this country. Thanks Tucker!!
