Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke: Mainstream Media Now Democrats’ ‘Propaganda Wing’ As Trump Defends Nation

Let’s turn our attention north of the “Cheddar Curtain” now. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, Jr., appeared on FOX News Saturday morning and really let the mainstream media and opponents of strengthening the borders/homeland security have it. On the sparring between President Trump and the mainstream media, Sheriff Clarke informed FOX & Friends Weekend viewers:

Well, first of all, the mainstream media, The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC- they have become the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party and of leftist ideology. They abandoned their responsibility under the Constitution, their First Amendment protection. And we want them to have First Amendment protection but we don’t want it to be used against people whose political views they don’t agree with or that they oppose. They’re supposed to be a watchdog but instead what they have become, like I said, is an echo chamber for leftist ideology. So I think it’s good because the media has changed. And organizations like The New York Times, The Washington Post, and others do not realize that this is a new media age and every person in the United States now is their own reporter. And that is competition to them as well and they don’t like it.

On President’s Trump’s initiatives to protect the nation’s borders and strengthen homeland security, Clarke said:

First of all, I’m tired of these one-percenters like Mark Zuckerberg and others lecturing us about who we are. I know who I am, and most Americans know who we are. We are a sovereign nation. If you’re going to be a sovereign nation, you have to have borders and you have to protect those borders. Mark Zuckerberg has no idea of who’s coming into this country and what it takes to vet those individuals. I as a law enforcement officer- I’m in my 39th year- we do a lot of vetting of people. I know how it’s done. But you have to have databases with which to compare. So you take a name, someone coming in as a refugee. And we’re not talking about the kids. I’m tired of all this crocodile tears about the kids, the poor kids coming. We’re not talking that. We’re talking about abled-bodied, grown men, fighting-age, that should be back in Syria and back in the Middle East fighting for their country coming over to the United States to spread jihad. So that’s who we’re talking about. But if you don’t have a database, someone gives you a name, and you don’t have a database in Syria, because they don’t have the record systems and the databases like we have with people- you have nothing to compare it to. So they give you a name and you look and there’s nothing there. That doesn’t mean that they’re safe to come in. So Donald Trump is right on this. And I hope that the rest of the people in Washington, D.C., realize that this thing is a mess and we have to get our arms around it. And at least President Donald Trump recognizes that…

What’s interesting is former President Barack Obama said that they were already doing it. So if he said- and they weren’t- but if he said they were already doing it, and now President Donald Trump comes along and says we’re doing it and now these same people who said, “Well, hey, Barack Obama’s taking care of it”- these same people are now being critical of it. The hypocrisy of this is profound. But, President Donald Trump understands that his first obligation is to defend and protect American citizens, and defend and protect America from foreign threats. That is his first and most important obligation. So he is rising up to that. And people should be proud of that. It makes me feel more secure that finally, somebody understands that the defense of this nation is government’s number one priority.

Quote For The Week

“This is nothing more than an attempt to intimidate the Trump administration and to intimidate the Trump supporters. This is a slap in the face to the voters. In our democracy, the voters decide who will lead these institutions of government. And numbers came out, enough to make Donald Trump the President-elect of the United States. It’s going to take them some time, but they’ll get over it. But in the meantime, you put up with them like a petulant two-year-old. You let them dance and have their tantrum. And then at some point you take them by the arm and you look them in the eye and you go, ‘That’s enough.’

Quote For The Week

“I am too pissed off tonight to be diplomatic about what’s going on and I’m not going to stick my head in the sand about it. I said last December that war had been declared on the American police officer led by some high profile people- one of them coming out of the White House, one coming out of the United States Department of Justice. And it’s open season right now. There’s no doubt about it…

And I’m tired of hearing people calling these black “activists.” They’re not activists. This is black slime and it needs to be eradicated from the American society and American culture…

I need every law-abiding person in the United States of America to stand up and start pushing back against this slime, this filth, that’s disparaging the American law enforcement officer within these communities. When these ugly people come out and start this, and start talking this stuff on social media, to push back against it, and demand- demand- people that belong to these organizations to get out of their town. There’s no room for it. Look, the American police officer is holding these communities together. And we need the support of the people that we defend everyday in order to get that done.”

-Milwaukee County (Wisconsin) Sheriff David Clarke, Jr., reacting to the killing of Harris County (Texas) deputy Darren Goforth on the Fox News TV show Justice with Judge Jeanine last Saturday

Guns & Ammo Publishes ‘Best States For Gun Owners 2015’

Yesterday I happened to come across an article entitled “Best States for Gun Owners 2015” on the Guns & Ammo website. Keith Wood wrote Tuesday:

For the third consecutive year and first time in print, Guns & Ammo presents our assessment of each state’s gun laws in a format that ranks them from worst to first for gun owners…

G&A has conducted a thorough review of each state’s laws and considered initiatives pending in state legislatures. Every effort has been made to create a ranking system that is fair, equitable, accurate and objective. States were ranked numerically in each of five categories: right-to-carry, right to own “black rifles” (i.e., firearms possessing a tactical appearance), presence of the Castle Doctrine, subjects relating to the National Firearms Act (NFA) and a catchall miscellaneous column…

Interesting. Considering the amount of activity in the state recently as it concerns gun rights, I was real curious to see where Illinois ranked on this list. From the piece:

43. Illinois

Illinois has gone from one of the worst states for gun owners to “not so bad as long as you don’t live in Chicago” these last few years. The state’s “shall issue” concealed carry permit system is up and running for both residents and nonresidents, and the sky did not fall. Illinois’ Firearm Owner’s Identification, or “FOID,” requirement remains in effect for all residents wishing to touch a firearm or ammunition except for those possessed by nonresidents in accordance with state law. Suppressors are not permitted in Illinois, though a bill to change that is currently before the legislature. Short-barreled rifles are not allowed. At the point of sale, there is a three-day waiting period before picking up a handgun, and a 24-hour waiting period is applied to all long guns. The state has strong use-of-force laws, and all tactical rifles are legal outside of municipalities such as Chicago and Highland Park…

To expand on that bit about “all tactical rifles are legal outside of municipalities such as Chicago and Highland Park,” Don Babwin reported on The State Journal-Register (Springfield, Illinois) website back on July 20, 2013:

According to the Illinois State Rifle Association, at least 16 municipalities – including Chicago – enacted ordinances banning or regulating assault weapons. Every one of them was in the Chicago metropolitan area. Around 30 other municipalities took up the issue but voted down the bans.

The list of towns that took action includes places such as Evanston, Highland Park, Hazel Crest and Calumet Park…

So that’s Illinois. How about north of the state line where I pursue the bulk of my outdoor activities (when I have the time, that is)? From the article:

25. Wisconsin

Life improved markedly for gun-owning Wisconsin residents when former Gov. Jim Doyle was replaced by Gov. Scott Walker. Wisconsin’s hard-won CCW law gets good marks for strong reciprocity and very limited “gun-free zones.” The state has a Castle Doctrine statute on the books and doesn’t restrict NFA items or tactical-looking firearms. A bill to repeal the state’s 48-hour waiting period on handgun purchases was recently signed by Gov. Walker, yet another step forward for gun owners. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is about as outspokenly pro-gun as it gets, which is a rare thing in a major metro area…

Nearby Indiana, by the way, actually placed 16th in this year’s rankings. Nice job.

Where does your state fall in the 2015 list? Head on over to the Guns & Ammo website here to find out.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Blasts Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Bill de Blasio For Anti-Police Sentiment In U.S.

Last night, I happened to catch the Fox News Channel show Justice with Judge Jeanine. The discussion was about the Saturday murders of two New York Police Departments cops- Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos- by career criminal Ismaaiyl Brinsley. African-American law enforcement officer and Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr., who first grabbed national headlines with a memorable PSA he recorded for Milwaukee County residents near the beginning of 2013 (blogged about here), appeared on the show and shared his thoughts about the killings. From the exchange between Judge Pirro and Sheriff Clarke:

PIRRO: You’ve got an African-American in the White House. And he wasn’t elected by just blacks. He was elected by whites. And yet he seems to be, along with his attorney general, the men who are creating this perception that cops are your enemy, and that you have to protect your kids from them. Why is that? Why are they doing this?
CLARKE: Because it was politically advantageous for both President Obama and Eric Holder to do that- and for Mayor de Blasio as well. And I found their statements that they came out with after the announcement of the death of these officers- I found them to be hollow, I don’t want anything to do with it. They can have it back. The only reason they’re saying what they’re saying today is because it is politically advantageous for them to say that today. They had a chance, Judge, to extol the virtue of our nation’s law enforcement officers early on in these tragic incidents. And instead, they chose divisive politics. And they benefitted from that divisive politics. But now the law enforcement community, our law enforcement officers, and our neighborhoods are suffering as a result of these divisive politics.

This stuff needs to stop from these individuals.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke’s Advice To Chicago

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr., recently spoke at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention. Sheriff Clarke, who first grabbed national headlines with a memorable Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office PSA he recorded around the beginning of 2013 (blogged about here), was interviewed right after his speech by Guns.com and had this to say about Chicago’s ongoing violence and its police superintendent, Garry McCarthy:

I’ve been at this for 35 years. I know what works. I know what doesn’t work. When it comes to policing, the first thing you have to do is establish a relationship with the community you serve in- because the people have got to be on your side. The overwhelming majority of people in these neighborhoods that are under siege by the criminal element- they are good, law-abiding people. I’m talking like 95 percent of them. They may be poor, they may be uneducated, they may be unemployed- but they’re good, law-abiding citizens that want to help and they just want to live in peace and they want safe neighborhoods for them and their families. So you create that relationship- they will help you identify the bad guys. Then you arrest the bad guys and you put together cases that will stand up in court. And after that you need a judiciary- judges at the state level- and you need prosecutors that are on the same page with the police that don’t undo the work and send those criminal right back out that revolving door and you keep them locked up for the longest period of time allowable by law. They did it in New York and you saw historic drops in crime and violence in New York. This is the model they used – it’s kind of the quality of life, broken windows theory. That stuff works. But everybody’s got to be on the same page.

My advice to the city of Chicago would be to get a new police chief. Because he doesn’t appear to get it. Just blame the gun stuff, blame the gun, blame the gun. The gun’s not the problem. It’s the person behind the gun, and that’s usually the career criminal that keeps being shown leniency, gets put back into circulation in the neighborhood, re-arms himself, and goes on to kill and maim, and rape and rob good law-abiding citizens. That would be my advice to them.
