With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
airline baggage gun TSA travel Democrat California Assemblyman Jim Cooper, who authored anti “ghost-gun” legislation and receives an F rating from the NRA-ILA, apparently forgot on March 3rd that he had a loaded firearm in his purse. TSA found it during the X-ray screening of his messenger bag, which, according to Cooper’s own office, “looks like a purse.” If you think he got in trouble for this, you’d be sadly mistaken.
[Cooper] was not charged during the incident. In fact, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office told the Sacramento Bee that law enforcement stored the discovered firearm for Cooper while he was on his trip and returned the gun to the lawmaker upon his arrival back in Sacramento.
Had you done this in California, you would have been jailed and/or fined. Well, probably.
The official story is that Cooper enjoys some exemption to the California ban on possessing a firearm in the “sterile” area of the airport due to the fact that he’s a retired law enforcement officer. However, bringing it onto a plane in his murse would have been a clear violation of Federal law and it certainly appears that, had TSA not caught his roscoe in his carry-on…well…Cooper had pretty clearly forgotten it was in there.
Additionally, Cooper wasn’t charged under Federal TSA laws for attempting — intentionally or not — to pass a loaded firearm through a security checkpoint, which carries a hefty civil fine up to $10,000 for a first-time offense.
Enjoying special person status and retaining your right to carry a gun in the airport, and attempting to pass a firearm through TSA screening and getting caught but not sanctioned (in fact, accommodated) are pretty far apart on the leniency scale. Looks like anti-gun politician Jim Cooper enjoyed both of these things though he’d undoubtedly lobby to have […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
