"Providing material support" sounds like more of a supporting role than directly participating, but he also cited his skills with weapons (based on a very short stint in the army, which is unlikely to have taught him much).
If true, this is a disaster of epic proportions for Trump. It doesn't matter how many illegal aliens he deports; if he caves and begins to grant official status to any of them, it undermines him with his base. And rightly so.
Obama's amnesty was an actual, "we will give you papers" amnesty. This article is talking about "guidance" and "priorities":
My take is that this is a deliberate attempt at sabotage by deception. It's one thing to give actual amnesty paperwork to an illegal, quite another to say you're going to focus on capturing and deporting the people actually committing additional crimes on top of being here illegally. You have to start somewhere and those people are often in contact with law enforcement anyway.
There's a big difference between choosing priorities and giving people legal amnesty paperwork. Let's keep that in mind.
They used to call this treason, back in the days when they wrote the Constitution. I think the people behind it should be identified, tried, convicted, and executed according to the law.
I don't really have strong opinions either way about Flynn himself, but this kind of conspiracy to interfere with a duly elected president is not acceptable, and that's before considering the potential abuse of wiretaps.
... with the idea to sell an internet enabled gun lock. They've got a slick website but the product doesn't appear to be available for sale.
Seems pointless except in a house with small children. It won't stop a thief. No models for rifles (except ARs in 223, looks like). For handguns there are safes with similar functionality built in. They won't stop a determined thief either. If the battery dies your gun is locked until it is replaced. I'd have to try their unlock mechanism to see if it is as friendly as they say, but it seems pretty easy to forget how it works under stress and fairly time consuming to unlock and remove. They say the device can't be hacked, but it talks to your phone -- of course it can be hacked.
The alert notification feature is sort of nice, especially the model where that doesn't also try to lock the gun.
Bottom line, this is a $150 solution to a $5 problem. It might still have some utility.
So when Hillary Clinton is under investigation for her private server that revealed national security secrets to everyone who hacked into it during her time in office, they suspended her clearance, right? Right? Right?
This is challenging for a tolerant and open society to deal with, because the open and tolerant response is to allow the individual exceptions on a small scale because they don't matter as much as the right to practice your own religion without needless interference from others and especially from government. But the Islamic view of this response is that it represents a submission to their challenge, and encourages them to view themselves as a people separate and apart from the rest of their adopted nation. It becomes more than a small quirk on the part of someone who otherwise fully participates in civil society; it becomes a badge of resistance and eventually conquest.
I can't agree that it's right to force students to shake their teacher's hands against their religion's gender contact restrictions. But I can't say that allowing that exception (and the hundreds of additional demands that will inevitably follow) will lead to anything but making things worse.
I think the only sane response to this is to only allow in those who are willing to put assimilation into the receiving culture over their religious dictates. As an immigrant, if you are not willing to do that, you shouldn't be asking to join a new nation. That's a different situation than imposing those rules by force on those already citizens.
Once they are here, it is too late for that. That's why being careful who is allowed in is vital.
It's amazing that a person like this can attack Milo for being "fascist" and "white supremacist" (with no evidence for those accusations) while explicitly calling for even more violence and somehow not notice the contradiction.
She even calls it "self defense" when it is her side smashing windows, setting fires, and even attacking people. "It's not spontaneous." "By any means necessary."
Arrest her for conspiracy to violate civil rights. Not for what she said, for what she did. Planned, premeditated acts of organized violence to shut down a speaker.
