Episode 870 – How Close Are We Getting to WW III?

The events of this weekend brought a big question to media. How close are we to World War III? Let’s talk about it.

Democrats have now created a new bureaucracy with the goal of taking away our right to bear arms. And they did it when no one would notice.

And Donald Trump has a new campaign ad. It will be a great shock to you who Democrats are blaming for the content of that ad.

This is How World Wars Start

According to the Daily Wire:

More than 130 people were killed during an Islamic terrorist attack at a concert hall in Russia on Friday night, according to the latest figures released by the Russian government.

Islamic State Khorasan Province, or ISIS-K, claimed credit for the terrorist attack that also wounded more than 140 people who were either shot, burned, or inhaled thick black smoke.

“As the rubble was being removed in the concert hall of the Crocus City Hall, the number of people killed in the terrorist attack has risen to 133,” said the Russian Investigative Committee. “The search operation is underway.”

Disturbing videos that circulated online of the attack showed four heavily armed men storming into Crocus City Hall and opening fire with automatic weapons on the sold-out concert.

The New York Times reported that the terrorists used “explosives and flammable liquids” to set the building on fire. The fire quickly spread the roof, causing portions of it to collapse, and soon engulfed at least a third of the building.

Vladimir Putin made a speech the day after the attack. He said:

“They tried to escape, they were moving towards the border with Ukraine. And we have data that suggests that they were about to be moved towards the territory of Ukraine by those in Ukraine.

“We will identify everyone who stands behind these terrorists and they will pay. These terrorists … there is only one future for them — retribution and oblivion.”

Putin did not directly blame Ukraine for the attack, and he did not mention the fact that the U.S. issued a public warning two weeks ago that terrorists were planning on targeting large crowds of people, specifically concerts, in Moscow. The U.S. also reportedly reached out to Russian officials and warned them directly about the ISIS-K plot.

The reality is he did blame Ukraine for the attack. On Saturday, Russia launched four missile attacks against Ukraine. This would not be a surprise except that one of the missiles strayed into Polish air space. Poland has to scramble a bunch of their F-16 fighters. They are demanding an explanation from Russia.

Some things about all this:

  • I don’t mean to be hyperbolic, but this is how world wars start.
  • No country wants a world war. Mutual assured destruction plays heavily here
  • This is what radical Islamists want. Sow chaos and cause war. They would love to see a world war.
  • This chaos is all because of the weakness of Joe Biden. No one is afraid of him or the United States.
  • Biden is enabling terrorists.
    • The Afghanistan surrender.
    • The continued attempt to revive the Iranian nuclear deal.
    • The insistence to the end of the Hamas/Israel war, in support of Hamas.
    • The capitulation to the Huthies.
    • Biden just release another $10 billion to the Iranian mullahs last week.
  • It is time to end the Ukraine/Russia war. This can be done in a month.
    • Right now, there is no exit strategy.
    • This war is in a stalemate. No one is going to get what they want.
    • Ukraine is looking like they don’t want to end this war.
    • Ukraine is not a democracy, it is a corrupt oligarchy. People are getting rich including that wet end Zelensky.
    • Zelensky is also proving to be a little tyrant.
      • His net worth is going way up. Wonder where he is getting the money?
      • He has declared martial law.
      • He has imprisoned political opponents and religious leaders.
      • He has cancelled the presidential elections scheduled for later this year.

Suddenly, Vlad Putin is not looking like the only asshole in that area.


Tyranny is Coming Here

According to the Post Millennial:

The Department of Justice announced on Saturday that it has launched the “National Extreme Risk Protection Order Resource Center” in an attempt to combat gun violence. 

This center will provide comprehensive training and support to law enforcement officials, prosecutors, judges, behavioral health professionals, and other stakeholders in implementing laws designed to prevent individuals who “pose a threat” from accessing firearms. These laws, commonly referred to as “red flag laws,” enable authorities to remove firearms from the hands of people deemed dangerous and suspected to be a threat to others or themselves. 

“The launch of the National Extreme Risk Protection Order Resource Center will provide our partners across the country with valuable resources to keep firearms out of the hands of individuals who pose a threat to themselves or others,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland. “The establishment of the Center is the latest example of the Justice Department’s work to use every tool provided by the landmark Bipartisan Safer Communities Act to protect communities from gun violence.” 

Funding for the center is derived from a Department of Justice grant approved as part of a gun control bill signed into law by President Biden in 2022. Vice President Kamala Harris is slated to unveil the center during her address at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on Saturday. The school was tragically the site of a shooting in 2018 that claimed the lives of 14 students and three staff members. 

President Biden’s administration has prioritized red flag laws as a crucial component of its gun control efforts. Last February, Biden announced that the DOJ would be giving over $231 million to states for red-flag programs. 

Critics have long argued that red flag laws pose significant Constitutional concerns and are likely to violate the Second Amendment rights of citizens. 


We Have a New Campaign Ad!

According to the New York Post:

A group of over 100 migrants attempted to enter the US illegally by rushing a border wall Thursday, breaking through razor wire and knocking over guards in the process.

The Post had earlier witnessed around 600 migrants massed at the international border, as part of a “spring surge” of migrants hoping to gain access to the US.

The Texas National Guard was attempting to organize them into smaller groups, but the situation grew tense after some women and children were separated from adult males by the guardsmen.

Video taken by The Post showed one set of migrants, mostly single men, then rushing the Texas troops.

A group of men with hoodies, gloves and winter jackets could be seen pulling fencing away and dashing through the concertina wire, as a group of five guards stood in a defensive formation to fill the gap.

Couple of things about this:

  • This is more common than we think. It just hasn’t been caught on camera because these are restricted part of the border.
  • This is a campaign ad.
  • This is an invasion.
  • What is the point of having the National Guard on the border if they are not going to do anything?

Later in the article:

A source told The Post the rowdy group — which had amassed in the area known as Gate 36, located next to the highway in El Paso — was pushed back to Mexico.

However, some members were arrested, and the rest of the people in the group were brought into the US for processing, according to local reports.

Border Patrol agent Orlando Marrero told the local KFOX14 news station, “The migrants that we encountered here today at Gate 36 will be taken to a processing center.”

Fox News reporter Bill Melugin later wrote on X that there had been one arrest for assaulting a soldier. He added that more charges related to destruction of property and assault were likely, citing Border Patrol sources.

Despite the commotion, the city of El Paso’s migrant dashboard showed 743 people had been released from custody and into the US on Thursday. They were either released on parole or to pursue asylum claims in accordance with President Biden’s current policies.

The reality is most of these people will be released if they haven’t been already. Even the one guy who was arrested for assault on a National Guardsman.

The media, of course, know this is a bad look and will be a campaign ad. They did their best to make this into someone else’s fault.

Here is Joe Scarborough of MSNBC leading the way. This actually looks more like an unhinged rant than a reasoned argument. Listen:

The White House also decided to release a statement. Of course, they blamed Trump:

“We are grateful for Border Patrol’s quick work to get the situation under control and apprehend the migrants.

“When the former President told Congressional Republicans to block the bipartisan border security agreement – he said to blame him for it. Well he got his wish, and the result was chaos after Governor Abbott’s Operational Lone Star and razorwire were overrun yesterday. While we cannot comment on individual cases, anyone who does not have a legal basis to remain in the United States is promptly removed.”

Some things:

  • The bill had the support of a couple of dumb Republicans. It wasn’t bipartisan.
  • Trump, like many other Republicans, said the bill sucked.
  • The bill would have spent tons of money and did nothing to secure the border.
    • It would let in 8000 illegals a day before anything could be done. Then it was up to the President to do something (which we know he will do nothing).
    • It did NOT secure the border with agents. I added agents to process illegals faster.
    • It DID NOT add more border wall or any protections.
    • It provided the President more power to open the border.
    • It adds more judges to Process illegal aliens.
  • Border patrol says they have enough men, money and the laws to secure the border. The laws on the books just need to be enforced.
  • When Trump left office, only 30,000 illegal crossing occurred. In February, there were 289,000.

Joe Biden opened the border. Everyone knows it. Trump has been out of office for over three years. No amount of gaslighting is going to change anyone’s perception.
