Antifa thugs unmasked in Alabama
by laws originally passed against the KKK

Antifa demonstrator told to remove mask by local police in Auburn, Alabama outside Richard Spencer event
By: Nate Madden | April 20, 2017

In a standoff between white supremacists and communist thugs, there are no heroes — save local law enforcement. Occasionally, however, there’s some half-decent schadenfreude to be found.  TWEET: Sam Willoughby @SamAWilloughby Some altercations after police demanded Black Bloc members remove their hoodies and masks.
In a twist of delicious irony, a law originally enacted to deal with the Ku Klux Klan led to the unmasking of several Antifa thugs on the streets of Auburn, Alabama, Tuesday.  According to a story at Twitchy, local police told people protesting a speech by Alt-Right leader Richard Spencer at Auburn University — which was court-ordered to host him — to take off their hallmark masks.

From video shot outside the venue, it appeared as though the police were enforcing the rules, which included a no-mask policy. That meant the members of the [A]ntifa, or anti-fascists, were made to uncover their faces as they marched past law enforcement toward the campus.
As the story notes, the responses to the unmasking on social media included tweets lauding the Auburn Police Department for enforcing the law while criticizing local cops in Berkeley, California, where lax law enforcement has been blamed for riots over the weekend. Spencer’s views are despicable, but the way a free society deals with bad ideas is to drown them out with better ones, not engage in domestic terrorism. Someone needs to pass that memo along.
As my colleague Chris Pandolfo pointed out in the wake of the past weekend’s riots in Berkeley, Antifa’s name, which is a truncation of “anti-fascism,” really ought not to be taken at face value.  “‘Antifa’ is made up of self-described anarchists — radical left-wing thugs who employ violence and intimidation to advance their beliefs,” he writes. “They’ve shown up previously at Berkeley to shut down a “free speech” event hosted by provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, leaving damaged property, fires, and assault victims in their wake.”
In short, Antifa has no problem shutting down political demonstrations with brute force and intimidation tactics for their socio-political ends [read: terrorism], and they typically wear masks to do it.

FIONALLY A COMMON SENSE SOLUTION TO OBAMACARE!

Let’s Have a Clean Repeal of ObamaCare With No Replacement

The biggest problem with the ObamaCare legislation (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, PL 111-148, and Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, PL 111-152) is that it enabled a huge increase of government involvement in healthcare. This has led to soaring healthcare insurance premiums, loss of insurance coverage, loss of choice of insurance plans, etc., etc.

We don’t need the various ObamaCare-lite and ObamaCare 2.0 proposals that would partially repeal ObamaCare, then replace what’s been repealed with continued government involvement in and control of our healthcare system.   What we need is legislation that would repeal the basic ObamaCare laws in such a way that the provisions of law amended or repealed by the ObamaCare laws would be restored or revived as if ObamaCare had not been enacted.

Happily, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) introduced H.R. 1718 (“ObamaCare Repeal Act”) on March 24 to accomplish this. Although he only has three cosponsors so far, he spoke at length about his plans for bringing his bill to a vote during a radio interview on April 3:
First thing to do is to get a bunch of co-sponsors so that the House leadership starts to take notice. The second thing to do is to file a discharge petition that forces it past the committee structure and straight to the House floor for a vote. So, I’m hopeful that, when we get to the point in time where I can file a discharge petition, that we will slowly but surely get the signatures on that petition.

I can’t do it right now. Under House rules, I have to wait 30 legislative days. In calendar days, that translates into some time in late May, or June, just depending on how many days we’re in session. But, when that time comes, if we’ve not addressed the repeal of Obamacare to the satisfaction of the American people, then I’m going to file that discharge petition. And at that point, it will be up to the American people to decide if they really want a repeal of Obamacare.

If they do, they contact their congressman, they get enough congressmen to sign that discharge petition, we have a House floor vote, and boom, we repeal it.  So, as Rep. Brooks said in his interview, what he needs now is “a bunch of co-sponsors” to get the attention of House leadership.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) had already introduced S. 106 (“ObamaCare Repeal Act”) on January 11 with almost identical wording to H.R. 1718.

Please phone your U.S. representative (202-225-3121) and senators (202-224-3121) and ask them to become cosponsors of H.R. 1718 and S. 106. Tell them you want a clean repeal of ObamaCare with no replacment.

Please also email your representative and senators with the same message.

Thanks.

NOAH’S ARK

Noah’s Ark
image
In the year 2016, the Lord came unto Noah,
who was now living in America and said:
“Once again, the earth has become wicked and over
-populated, and I see the end of all flesh before me.”
“Build another ark and save 2 of every living thing
along with a few good humans.”
He gave Noah the blueprints, saying:
“You have 6 months to build the ark before I will
start the unending rain for 40 days and 40 nights.”
image
Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah
weeping in his yard – but no ark.
“Noah!,” He roared, “I’m about to start the rain!
Where is the ark?”
image
“Forgive me, Lord,” begged Noah, “but things have changed.”
“I needed a building permit.”
image
“I’ve been arguing with the boat inspector
about the need for a sprinkler system.”
image
“My neighbors claim that I’ve violated the
neighborhood by-laws by building the ark in my
back yard and exceeding the height limitations. We had to
go to the local Planning Committee for a decision.”
image
“Then the local Council and the electric company demanded
a
shed load of money for the future costs of moving power

lines and other overhead obstructions, to clear the
passage for the ark’s move to the sea. I told them
that the sea would be coming to us, but they would

hear none of it.
image
“Getting the wood was another problem. There’s a ban
on cutting local trees in order to save the Greater Spotted Barn Owl.”
“I tried to convince the environmentalists that I
needed the wood to save the owls – but no go!”
image
“When I started gathering the animals the ASPCA took me to court. 
They insisted that I was confining wild animals against their will. They
argued the accommodations were too restrictive and
it was cruel and inhumane to put so many animals in
a confined space.”

image
“Then the Environmental Protection Agency  
ruled that I couldn’t build the ark until they’d conducted an environmental impact study on your proposed flood.”   “I’m still trying to resolve a complaint with the
Human Rights Commission on how many minorities I’m
supposed to hire for my building crew.”
image
“The Immigration Dept. is checking the
visa status of most of the people who want to work.”
image
“The trade unions say I can’t use my sons. They
insist I have to hire only Union workers with
ark-building experience.”
image
“To make matters worse, the IRS seized all my assets, claiming I’m
trying to leave the country illegally with endangered species.”
image
“So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least 10
years for me to finish this ark.”
image
“Suddenly the skies cleared, the sun began to shine,
and a rainbow stretched across the sky.”
image

Noah looked up in wonder and asked,
“You mean you’re not going to destroy the world?”
“No,” said the Lord.
“The Government beat me to it.”
