The Right to Resist and the Vindication of Julius Holmes

The Right to Resist and the Vindication of Julius Holmes:

Julius Holmes was in his Macon, Georgia apartment cooking dinner when Officer Rogers arrived to arrest him.

“I’ll be damned if you will,” Holmes hissed, making a furtive move toward a handgun he had placed on a nearby bed.

Miraculously, Holmes wasn’t gunned down by Officer Rogers, who simply shoved him aside and seized the gun.

“I’ve come for you, and I am going to carry you even if it takes the whole police force,” Rogers growled.

“It probably will,” Holmes defiantly replied. “Go ahead and call them. I’ll die before I’ll be arrested.”

An Anarchist Will Help You Build a DIY AR-15

An Anarchist Will Help You Build a DIY AR-15:

During a recent visit to Defense Distributed, the mood is casual, with workers starting to trickle in between 10 and 11 a.m. The nonprofit’s workspace takes up roughly 1,900 square feet in a bland office park in northeast Austin, and the only exterior marking is a sticker on the door advertising a small-business association. Inside, it looks like any other small-scale manufacturer, employing about 15 people, mostly male. Clever millennials with idiosyncratic political views, they swap observations about Donald Trump – viewed as so absurd that his ascendancy might result in perversely productive chaos – as they strip wires and screw machines together.

Cody Wilson, the mediagenic 28-year-old behind Defense Distributed, paces around, multitasking…. Occasionally he chimes in on the Trump speculation, but Wilson does not vote. To do so would acknowledge the legitimacy of a political system he doesn’t believe in.

Her cousin, Sen. Chuck Schumer, may have spent the night supporting his colleagues on the floor of the House, and now Amy Schumer is also doing her part by highlighting the flawed legal system that makes it hard for gun violence victims to receive justice. 

In a just-released sketch from an earlier episode of her show, Inside Amy Schumer, comedian Jon Benjamin plays a lawyer who claims he can help people get justice — as long as they’re not victims of gun violence. 

“Don’t call me, because there’s nothing I can do,” he says, before explaining that he learned this after his brother and former law partner was killed by a stray bullet at a mall shooting.  Read more…

Channeling Cheney: The Democrats’ Terrorist Fearmongering and War on Due Process

Channeling Cheney: The Democrats’ Terrorist Fearmongering and War on Due Process:

In their effort to exploit Orlando and other recent mass shootings, Feinstein and the Democrats encountered a serious problem: Neither Omar Mateen, nor the racist Charleston killer Dylann Roof, nor numerous other mass shooters, were on any terrorist watchlist. So Feinstein wrote a special provision in her bill to obviate this objection, one empowering the attorney general to put anyone on the banned list…

After Feinstein’s bill was rejected last night on a largely party-line vote by the Senate, the Democrats unleashed a fearmongering messaging campaign so exploitative and deceitful that it would have made Karl Rove blush with embarrassment, or at least seethe with envy.
