  2. This the LEFT's false flag in the making to counter attack "the Declassify" which is coming soon to put all the LEFT in jail – WATCH you will see more of these BS because the LEFT panic…

  3. In a recent news statement, Donald J. Trump blamed the issue of mass murder on mental health issues, the use of video games and the media. Donald J. Trump did not take responsibility for his personal fear mongering or his hate-based rallies in which he has personally advocated violence against anyone who disagrees with him and in which he has personally denigrated brown-skinned people by calling them murderers and rapists and by insisting that America was being invaded by these lawless hordes, even though American government statistics demonstrate that immigrants are more law-abiding than native-born Americans. Trump also failed to place any responsibility for the mass murders and gun violence in America on the NRA for the part they play in ensuring that Congress does not pass any laws which will diminish the sale of weapons designed to take life efficiently and with great speed. One of the very first acts of the Republican-controlled Congress and Donald J. Trump in February 2017, just days after Trump took office, was to reverse a law signed by President Obama that blocked the sale of guns to people who had been determined to have a mental illness.
    Chris Cox, Executive Director of the NRA at that time applauded the change to our gun safety laws and said the move “marks a new era for law-abiding gun owners, as we now have a president who respects and supports our arms.”

    If Donald Trump truly believes that those with mental illness should not have access to guns why did he sign a bill that reversed President Obama's executive order to remove social security recipients with mental illness from the NICS background system? In the United States, it is easier to get a gun than it is to get mental health, according to Angela Kimball, acting CEO of the National Association of Mental Illness and that is largely in part because of the actions of Donald J. Trump, the GOP and the NRA. The shooters responsible for the recent mass murders at the Garlic Festival in California, the mass murder in El Paso Texas and the mass murder in Dayton Ohio all purchased their assault rifles legally and none of them had been adjudicated to have a mental illness. Under Donald J. Trump’s suggested ban on people with a mental illness being able to purchase guns the shooters in the recent mass murders in California, Texas, and Ohio would still be able to legally purchase guns.
    Assault weapons like the AR15 are the main problem because they give a person with the desire and inclination to kill people the firepower to kill a large number of people within seconds. According to the Dayton Chief of police, the Dayton shooter was neutralized within 30 seconds after opening fire on innocent people and in that 30 second time period he was able to murder nine people and injure 27 other people. In less than 30 seconds the Dayton shooter was able to shoot 36 people and that is the problem with allowing assault weapons to be owned by civilians. More than one person per second was shot by the Dayton shooter who legally purchased his assault rifle and the shooter had never been adjudicated to have a mental illness! The only way to stop the efficiency and expediency with which these mass murders are happening is to ban assault weapons!

    Donald J. Trump also wants to marry any new gun regulation that only regulates guns related to mental health issues with immigration even though most of the mass murders in America are committed by native-born white males. Immigration is not the issue, gun ownership is!

    In 2019 the Democratically controlled House of Representatives passed new gun control regulations that would require universal background checks for most gun purchases or transfers. On February 26, 2019, Donald J. Trump threatened a presidential veto on the legislation if it passed Congress. Sadly Mitch McConnell refused to permit the House Bill to go to the Senate floor for a vote. Donald J. Trump and Mitch McConnel are playing partisan politics with the lives of American citizens!

    Donald J. Trump, Mitch McConnell, the entire GOP, the NRA, and its members all have blood on their hands!

    Donald Trump's constant rhetoric of hate towards brown-skinned people, his administration's treatment of brown-skinned people which is meant to denigrate and devalue them as human beings coupled with his constant reference to an invasion on our southern border is inciting violence and Donald Trump is absolutely responsible for the hate and fear in this country which is now leading to mass murder! As the catalyst of hate, Donald Trump is responsible for the murders of these innocent people as much as the shooter is responsible! The shooter in El Paso who lived in a very upscale neighborhood in Allen Texas appears to have grown up in a family of white privilege. In his manifesto, he wrote that he was doing this to protect America from an invasion of brown-skinned people. He acknowledged that he is a Trump supporter. Hitler created a propaganda technique called the BIG LIE in which he would tell a BIG LIE over and over and over until the German people believed it and that method of propaganda was very effective in allowing him to commit genocide against the Jews. Donald Trump has studied Hitler and Donald Trump is using the BIG LIE method of propaganda to persuade millions of Americans that there is an invasion along our southern border, that brown-skinned people are taking their jobs, that brown-skinned people are rapists and murderers and that it is acceptable to place brown-skinned people in cages and that it is acceptable to take the children of brown-skinned people away from them because these people have little value. Donald Trump has so effectively corrupted the minds of millions of Americans with his lies, with the BIG LIE, that young impressionable white people like the shooter in El Paso believes that it is acceptable to murder innocent civilians. Donald Trump is absolutely responsible for the deaths of these innocent people whose only crime is that they are hated by Donald Trump for being poor brown-skinned people!

    Shortly after the February 2018 mass murder at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland that left 17 students and teachers dead, Trump met with some of the survivors at the White House and promised that he would support gun reform. The very next day he met with NRA leaders and reneged on the promise he made to the survivors of the mass murder at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School just the day prior. In February 2019, the Democratic-controlled House passed two bills that would have tightened background checks on gun buyers, but the GOP-controlled Senate never took up either of the bills because Mitch McConnel refused to allow the bills to go to the Senate floor for a vote, as Trump had promised to veto the legislation.

    The President of the United States, Donald J. Trump has a big responsibility to life and safety in our Country. Claims of Fake News by the president, the Republican Party, and the actual Fake News of Fox News has contributed greatly to the anger and rage that has built up over many years. News coverage from Donald J. Trump and Fox News has got to start being fair, balanced and unbiased, or these terrible problems will only get worse!

    Donald Trump is absolutely responsible for the deaths of these innocent people whose only crime is that they are hated by Donald Trump for being poor brown-skinned people!

    Donald Trump is not fit to serve as the president of the United States of America!
