Students Walking Out in Protest of Gun Violence

Today is the big day – students across the US are walking out of their classrooms to protest gun violence and send a message to politicians that they want more gun control. The walk out comes on the one month anniversary of the Parkland, Florida school shooting.

Sponsored by Empower, the youth wing of the Women’s March, the walk out beings at 10 A.M. and is to last for 17 minutes. One minute for each victim from the Parkland shooting.

Most schools have said they will not punish their students for leaving class, while other school administrations caution about making political statements.

From Fox News:

Districts in Sayreville, New Jersey, and Maryland’s Harford County drew criticism this week when they said students could face punishment for leaving class. In Pensacola, Florida, Superintendent Malcolm Thomas ordered students to hold an in-school assembly instead, telling them they could discuss voting and mental health issues, but not guns, and saying that political banners would not be allowed.

However, not all schools are participating. A new movement called Walk Up, Not Out has emerged. It encourages students to take a more proactive approach rather than one of protest.

One Catholic school is urging students to pray for other students.

The Women’s March is also planning a “March for Our Lives” later this month in Washington D.C.

It’s great that students are taking action because they should advocate for safer schools – no child should live in fear of getting shot in a classroom. But instead of addressing the real problems like institutional failures by our FBI and local law enforcement agencies, as well as mental health issues, liberals have hijacked the movement and turned it into one about gun control.

The kids are being used as political pawns to further agendas and as we all saw at the CNN Town hall, they are even being exploited for TV ratings.

The Walkout movement may not really accomplish anything, but the Walk Up movement actually could.

If you’re a parent, did you let your child participate in the walkout? How did you talk to them about what’s going on? Let us know in the comments.

Turns Out, People at Saturday’s Women’s March Didn’t Really Know Why They Were Marching

On Saturday, the women marched again. Some wore pink hats , even though those are supposed to be insensitive to trans women – guess they didn’t get the memo? They were armed with signs supporting Planned Parenthood, Black Lives Matter, pay equality and immigration. Others made fun of conservative women, called for the impeachment of Trump and his cabinet.

The Hulk went. Halsey read a poem about a friend who’d been raped and Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, shamed white women for not being a part of the “sisterhood” and praised black women for saving the country from itself.

And then they literally littered in DC (so much for loving the environment) by leaving all their signs in front of the White House.

But probably the funniest thing on the Internet today was from YouTuber Fleccas Talks who went down to one of the Women’s Marches and asked a few people exactly what they were marching for.

Most couldn’t answer. One guy said he hated conservatism and that Trump wasn’t qualified because he’d never been President before. (That’s every President we’ve ever had serving a first term in office.)

Another felt shame for being a white male. Some women wanted to kill both Trump and Pence. Others were unhappy because he’s “repealed stuff.”

Pure brilliance right there! For a lot of laughs, check out the video below. (Thankfully he also talked to a few sane people who were out there just to watch and actually seemed to have some smarts about them.)

Joe Scarborough releases song inspired by Women’s March….yes, seriously

Saturday is the one year anniversary of the Women’s March. Never wanting to miss an opportunity to get some press coverage, the unreasonably angry,  liberal women took to the streets to…uh march again.

It’s still rather unclear what they are protesting. I mean it’s not like they’re living in Iran or something.

Maybe they all collectively decided they needed some exercise or some time away from their 12 cats. You know, some times you just have to get away, am I right ladies? Whatever their reasoning, rest assured the angry, female activists dressed so eloquently in their vagina hats while chanting incoherently, will have plenty of media sympathizers.

One of those in the media who apparently knows what it’s like to be a middle-aged white woman living in America is Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough. Come to find out hosting a third-rate morning political talk show isn’t all Joey can do.

He’s actually an extremely talented singer/songwriter. He probably ranks somewhere between Bob Dylan and Big Bird. Impressive company, I know.

Think I’m kidding about his singing and songwriting? Sadly, I’m not.

No, Joey boy decided Saturday would be a great opportunity to release his debut single!

Listen, if you can.

So, there you have it folks. And I know, what you’re thinking, no, he hasn’t announced tour dates yet, but keep checking back!

Glamour’s 2017 Women of the Year Awards Excludes Conservative Women

Glamour magazine recently held their “Women of the Year” awards, yet conveniently left out conservative women. You would think there would be at least ONE worthy of one of a nomination? According to their web site, the awards to go game changers, rule breakers and trailblazers.

For 27 years, Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards has honored game changers, rule breakers, and trailblazers. This year proved to be one of our biggest ever. This year’s Women of the Year honorees cover a lot of bases—an astronaut, a supermodel, a refugee, an Oscar winner—but they’re all using their platforms to improve the lives of women everywhere.

I saw plenty of conservative women in 2017 who fit the bill. Instead, people like Maxine Waters, Samantha Bee, Laverne Cox, the Women’s March organizers were chosen.

So since Glamour failed to recognize the rock stars in the conservative movement, I’ve decided to put together a few outstanding conservative women myself who deserve recognition.

Hope Hicks & Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Hicks, communications director for Donald Trump and Sanders, White House Press Secretary make the first female led White House Communications team in history. Feminists should be celebrating! Yet no one seems to be acknowledging their accomplishments.


Nikki Haley

Current ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley has taken tough stances on Russia and Iran and been a strong supporter of Israel. Could she be our first female president?

 
Dana Loesch
dana-loesch-volquartsen
NRA Spokesperson and host of “The Dana Show”, Dana Loesch has been one of the Second Amendment’s most vocal supporters. Dana takes a lot of heat from the left and often gets rape and death threats from the anti-gun crowd.

 
Amanda Carpenter
H0ve0F7A

Former senior communications advisor and speechwriter for Senator Ted Cruz, Amanda Carpenter now works for CNN as a political commentator. Carpenter actually used to write for Glamour’s political blog, so you’d think they’d take the time to honor her! She’s often outspoken and critical of President Trump but makes a lot of great points in her writing and commentary.

Elly Maye
ELL2

Conservative/Libertarian YouTube blogger Elly Maye is one of the rising conservative millennial stars. Her funny videos tend to go viral with the Republican crowd and if you haven’t watched one, start with “Top 10 Reason’s Why I’m Not a Democrat.”

And those are JUST a few of the many conservative women Glamour could have chosen to recognize, but didn’t. They’re all rising stars and blazing new paths and deserve some recognition for their contributions to the conservative cause.

Thank you, ladies, for all that you do to show that yes, there ARE young, female conservatives out there that we can relate to.

Women’s March to Protest NRA

Last week, conservative talk show host Dana Loesch caused quite a stir with her new NRA ad.

Liberals went nuts, including Women’s March organizer Tamika Mallory, who posted an open letter to the NRA on her Twitter and Facebook pages. In her letter, Mallory calls Loesch’s new NRA ad “irresponsible and dangerous propaganda.”

When Mallory and the Women’s March organizers didn’t get their wish for the NRA ad to be removed, they decided to stage a protest against the organization. Scheduled for July 14th – 15th the protest will start in front of NRA headquarters in Fairfax, VA then continue on an 18 mile march to the headquarters of the Department of Justice. They will protest there on the 15th.

Just like all the marches before, this Women’s March alienates a large part of their intended supporter base. According to a 2017 Pew study, 1 in 5 women own a gun and 70% of women who own a firearm say gun ownership is an essential part of their personal freedom.

And in a 2013 New York Times article, the newspaper found “women’s participation in shooting sports has surged over the last decade, increasing by 51.5 percent for target shooting from 2001 to 2011, to just over 5 million women, and by 41.8 percent for hunting, according to the National Sporting Goods Association.”

Many women (including myself) own a firearm for personal protection and wholeheartedly support our Second Amendment rights. While I was never a fan of the organization to begin with due to their pro-abortion stance, their continued assault on conservative values keeps driving me – and many other women – even further away.

According to their mission statement, the Women’s March aims “to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change.” That’s pretty laughable when they fail to include or even recognize the diverse pro-life, pro-gun, pro-capitalism conservative women on the right.

This woman still won’t be marching anytime soon.
