Dear Senators,

I am writing to thank Senator Richard Martinez for voting against SB 5 in the previous committees, the “red flag” bill, and to urge the rest this committee and the State Senate to vote likewise against this atrocious, anti-freedom piece of legislation.

SB 5 tramples the freedoms that are supposed to be protected by the Second, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Amendments, as follows:

* It allows for the forcible disarmament of people who need to have firearms the most — the five-foot, 100-pound woman being stalked by a deranged, six-foot, 200-pound ex-boyfriend who calls law enforcement and tells them that she’s “suicidal.”

* The bill allows for ex parte proceedings to take place, where the respondent is not only denied the right to offer a defense to the court, but the respondent is not even aware that the proceedings are taking place. Thus the respondent is denied the chance to confront his or her accuser, or to call witnesses in his or her defense.

Thank you for listening to my views.

Mike Blessing
Albuquerque, New Mexico

Way to Start Off on the Wrong Foot

Rather than talk about the innumerable GOOD deeds by black people over the millennia, the lefty-fascists would rather piss and moan about Whitey

Meanwhile, Blackface Whitehood [1] continues with his plans to revive the victim disarmament aspects of the “Jim Crow” laws (most likely financed by Bloomberg and Soros) in Virginia.

Isn’t it funny how liberals tell YOU that you can’t have a valid opinion of climate change because “you aren’t a scientist,” and yet they make climate heroes of a former Tenn. politician whose only qualification is that his father was a Senator, a bunch of Hollywood actors who have no qualifications at all, and a 16-year-old kid who has openly admitted she is skipping school.

Jimmy Carter – The World Will Run Out of Oil in 2011

H/T Tom Souther

Well, it’s eight years later, and not only hasn’t the world run out of oil, but the United States has gone from a net oil importer to an exporter, thanks to technology and the capitalist spirit.

“Working for Workers” is Really Working AGAINST Workers

Filed under: Economics, Politics — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 1:36 AM (01:36)

From: Representative Debra Haaland <NM01DH@mail.house.gov>
Date: Mon, Sep 2, 2019 at 8:42 AM
Subject: Working for Workers

News from Representative Haaland

August 29, 2019

Dear Mr. Blessing,

Happy Labor Day! Every year we celebrate the contribution of unions and the labor movement to our country. Unions built the American middle class. We owe the 40-hour work week, minimum wage, and child labor laws all to the work of organized labor and unions. They are a force against income inequality and we need them now more than ever.

As a member of the Labor and Working Families Caucus and a former member of the Teamsters Union, I am fighting for you every day. I am proud to be a cosponsor of The Protecting the Right to Organize Act to expand protections for workers who exercise their right to unionize. I also voted to pass the Raise the Wage Act, which would increase the federal minimum wage for the first time in a decade.

Sincerely,

Member of Congress

Who Wants Trump to be Assassinated?

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:45 PM (17:45)

For starters, apparently Roger Demetrius Kaschak does, that’s who —

Digression here — I’m not a fan of Trump, considering his vocal support for the victim disarmament cause, but the “baby Trump” balloons are quite simply moronic, in my opinion.

For what it’s worth, Kaschak is a Biden supporter —

Wes Milliken, “Libertarian” Victim Disarmer and Hoplophobe

Filed under: Politics, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 11:50 PM (23:50)

While scrolling through my “News Feed” on Facebook, I found this little “gem” attached as a “comment” to a post by Danny Bedwell —

https://facebook.com/danny.bedwell.587/posts/10211219478122893?comment_id=10211219639566929

Following the post back to Milliken’s profile, I found that Milliken says he’s in the business of “. . . spreading libertarian ideals of peace, freedom, and prosperity . . . .” :

  

A casual scroll-through of Milliken’s “Timeline” reveals even more such “goodness” of the kind that Milliken posted to Mr. Bedwell’s Facebook post —

I was going to add a comment or two under each of the above pictures, but that would be superfluous, in my opinion.

Also in my opinion, libertarianism without a healthy, expanding gun culture to back it up isn’t much more than an intellectual exercise at best, and wishful fantasizing at worst.

This sort of thing is what you get when a movement’s advocates value “diversity” and “inclusiveness” over principles.

For those of you in the “Libertarian” Party of New Mexico who in 2017 signed off on the notion that everyone before the Johnson / Weld 2016 exercise in serial treason against both the organization and its professed principles was “good on the Second Amendment, but not much else,” I cordially invite you to anally self-fornicate with a plugged-in curling iron, or a lit stick of dynamite. My sincere regret is that I am unable to supply the latter for any of you.

Taking Pictures or Video at TV or Movie Sets on Public Property is NOT a Crime

Filed under: Principles — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:16 PM (21:16)

I saw this post on Craigslist about a month ago —

https://albuquerque.craigslist.org/vnn/d/albuquerque-pics-vids-at-movie-shoots/6921286643.html

Here’s the text of the post (Craigslist normally deletes posts 45 days after they’re put up) —

It is not illegal to take video or pics of movie shoots as long as you are doing from public property. Don’t let them try and tell you youre violating copyright laws because you cannot copyright real life. PINAC Photography Is NOT A Crime[1]. That is Robert Duh Niro in The Comeback Trail.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBsJVTCBTRc

Here’s the embedded video from the post —

Someone that looks like De Niro can seen standing to the left of the older orange car on the left side of the video.

It should be noted that not only was the photographer taking the picture from public property (somewhere in the Downtown area of Albuquerque), but that the set itself also seems to have been located on public property.

Someone needs to tell the producers and locations managers that if they don’t want the general public taking pictures or video of their stars or the set, then they should not use public streets as their set.

Just because you flash some cash in front of some Political Classholes, that doesn’t mean that you get to have exclusive use of public property.

Bernalillo County DA Raul Torrez, Idiot or Liar?

Filed under: Politics, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:50 PM (15:50)

In light of the past six months, I think that it’s rather obvious that Bernalillo County District Attorney Raúl Torrez is functioning as a rhetorical sock puppet for the Big Victim Disarmament machine, with the hands of George Soros and Michael Bloomberg up his rear making his lips move —

Sock puppets — which one is Raúl Torrez?

On Monday, 10 June 2019, the Bernalillo County District Attorney’s Office posted a bit of idiocy or fearmongering on Facebook —

Monday, 10 June 2019 at 1:16 PM

An Albuquerque teen arrested for selling the deadly drug fentanyl and military grade weapons on social media now being prosecuted federally.

Here are some photos from that post, with my own commentary in red.

Kid with FRNs fanned

Here El Chapo Jr shows off the fruits of his alleged business activities.

Oh, my — pills!

Beretta 92 type pistol with magazines

Yes, the M9 was and is patterned after the Beretta 92 series of pistols. That’s because Fabbrica d’Armi Pietro Beretta introduced it into the U.S. Armed Forces’ trials to replace the M1911, and the M9 was selected in 1985 as the winner of those trials.

Never mind that the Beretta 92 series has been available on the American civilian market since it was first made available by Beretta in 1975. And also disregard the non-Beretta clones of the Model 92 series available to American civilians — the Taurus PT-92, for example.

Similarly, there have been numerous civilian clones of the M1911 available on the American market for decades.

And recently, the SIG Sauer P320 was adopted as the U.S. military’s M17, with a civilian version of the M17 (“SIG Sauer P320 M17”) being offered by SIG Sauer.

And of course there’s the Glock, which gained notoriety after being adopted by the Austrian military and police as their service pistol in 1982, and has been subsequently adopted by quite a few other military and law enforcement agencies. (Disclaimer — I own two (2) Glocks myself, a G17 and a G22)

But wait, there’s more! (Apologies to Billy Mays and Anthony Sullivan) — Torrez & Co. want us to follow them deeper down their taxpayer-subsidized, Bloomberg- and Soros-directed rathole and swim with them in their sewer of hoplophobic insanity and idiocy: here’s more “evidence” of “military grade” “assault weapons” “on the street” —

Pic from behind AR-15 pistol (blurry)

My request for clear, in-focus pictures, of course, appears to have gone unheeded.

AR-15 pistol with drum mag in car (dated Wednesday, 5 June)

Here’s a picture from the related press conference, dated Wednesday, 5 June 2019 at 12:28 PM

Of course, the Albuquerque Journal added its no-charge PR help reporting (the KRQE “News” “team” was also complicit) of Torrez’s rhetorical regurgitation —

“Make no mistake about it, this young man had in his possession a weapon of war,” Torrez stated. The AR-15 pistol is small enough to be concealed on a person’s body and can be fired with just one hand.

But “seriously” (as if these idiots and liars should actually be taken seriously?!) — “weapon of war” ?

Maybe Torrez mistook the AR-15 pistol pictured here for an M231 Firing Point Weapon[1] . . . ?

Maybe the next item on El Chapo Jr’s shopping list was a Bradley Fighting Vehicle of some sort?

But seriously (for real, this time) —

What military or law-enforcement agency actually uses AR-15 pistols as pictured above?

Why would they use such neutered knock-offs when they can get AR-15-pattern weapons with similar-length barrels (this one appears to be about 10 inches) AND attached shoulder stocks (suppressors, too!) without having to fill out any Form 4s or pay the 200-per-weapon transfer tax.

That’s what the AR-15 pistols with exposed buffer tubes like that are — neutered knock-offs.

They’re marketed to those who want an AR-15 with a barrel shorter than 16 inches without having to complete a Form 4, pay the transfer tax, get fingerprinted and photographed, then wait six months to a year wondering if their federal weapon permit will be approved.

What Torrez and his fellow Political Classholes need is a reminder that the Founders wanted America’s private-sector civilians to have actual weapons of war in their personal possession, as opposed to neutered knock-offs —

The power of the sword, say the minority . . . , is in the hands of Congress. My friends and countrymen, it is not so, for The powers of the sword are in the hands of the yeomanry of America from sixteen to sixty. The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress has no power to disarm the militia. Their swords and every terrible implement of the soldier are the birthright of Americans.
Tench Coxe, Letter to the Pennsylvania Gazette, 20 February 1788

What Torrez and others of his ilk either forget or willfully disregard is that the Founders wanted America’s civilian population to have at least military parity with, if not supremacy over, the federal government, and probably the state governments, as well.

What is the specific war that we need such military weapons for, exactly?

Why, it’s the perpetual war for human freedom, of course.
