Rant of the Week: California Politician Does The Second Amendment Limbo

Evan-Low-315x175

evan-low

I can’t count the number of times my Rant of the Week’s subject has been about liberals who excoriate conservatives for doing something they do all the time. “Don’t do as I do, do as I say,” is a fundamental precept of liberalism and now there’s another shining example of how low a liberal can go.

California assemblyman Evan Low, apparently an avid shotgunner, recently posted a video on his Facebook page showing him handily dispatching clay birds at the Los Altos Rod and Gun Club. Low knocked them down at a rate that would indicate he was pretty darn familiar with the business end of a shotgun.

Now I understand that there are plenty of Democrats who love shooting every bit as much as Republicans but when it comes to Low, it’s a bit perplexing. As a California Assemblyman, Low is not known to be an advocate of the right to bear arms nor a friend of the NRA.

A TruthRevolt.com article relates how Low holds the National Rifle Association directly responsible for mass shootings. According to the May 18th article, shortly after the Orlando terrorist attack Low personally called out NRA lobbyist Dan Reid during a hearing saying, “It’s very difficult for me to sit here and look at you in the eyes and have respect for you, sir, Dan, because – not only because of lives that have been cut because of your organization, mothers and fathers, but many lives have been shattered by it.” Then he goes a little lower.

After reading out loud the names of some of the Pulse nightclub shooting victims, Low stooped still lower by saying none of them could be present because they were all dead and accused Reid of murder.

Specifically, Low said, “Of course, the reason they were murdered was because of basically your organization, which has vigorously lobbied to allow for these things to occur and to acquire weapons.”

Interesting words from a guy who appears to be a shooter and it makes me wonder how many Islamic terrorists he thinks belong to the NRA. Apparently, no one bothered to tell Low that the 49 people who died that night were killed by an Islamic terrorist. As difficult as it may be to wrap your brain around this so far, Low sinks even further.

Assemblyman Evan Low is a major proponent of the idea of making the entire state of California a sanctuary state for illegal aliens. Unless you’ve been tied up binge watching all 30 seasons of The Simpsons, you know sanctuary states for illegal aliens are… well… illegal on several levels.

First of all, illegal aliens are, you know, illegal, period.

Second, many illegal aliens go on to commit violent crimes in the local community.

And finally, declaring a state to be a “Sanctuary State,” essentially a get-out-of-jail-free card for illegals to live there is, in-and-of-itself, illegal. Of course being illegal doesn’t deter the blue states one bit. Being illegal is another of the fundamental precepts of liberalism.

Other brilliant positions Low holds include demanding President Trump’s resignation, or if necessary impeachment, and abolishing the Electoral College. I have no doubt at this very moment he’s hatching another wacky anti-second amendment idea which begs the question – How low, can Low go, I don’t know.

WATCH: Armed Forces Trumpet Tribute…While Shooting A Gun

gungram

gungram

Charlie Cook, also known as GunGram on YouTube, is known for videos featuring both his trumpet and shooting skills.

He recently did an awesome tribute to our men and women in uniform in the form of a video montage in which he performs every song from the Armed Forces on his trumpet while simultaneously shooting his firearm. Now that takes mad skills! The level of concentration playing an instrument and shooting a firearm takes is impressive in itself. Add the two together and it’s magical.

Plus, what a cool way to honor our veterans!

Check it out:

Well done – two thumbs up, Mr. Cook!

Survival Gardening Hacks To Achieve The Perfect Tomato Plant

tomato-plants-feat-750x420

In my opinion, no list of survival gardening hacks is complete without tomato tips! There are so many different ways to care for tomatoes – the all natural way. No chemicals required!

Survival Gardening Hacks| 6 Simple Tips To Top Tier Tomatoes

My article, 8 Baking Soda Uses For Your Survival Garden To Try, I listed a tomato plant hack using baking soda. Since that article’s publication, survival gardeners have been inquiring about additional gardening tips and hacks. The one plant that has been inquired about the most? You guessed it…the tomato plant! In this article, I will share with you additional and all natural hacks for your beautiful tomato plants. Let’s begin!

1. Plant Deep

Check out Survival Gardening Hacks To Achieve The Perfect Tomato Plant at https://survivallife.com/survival-gardening-hacks-tomato-plant/

Due to the root system of a single tomato plant potentially becoming quite large, my suggestion is to give them plenty of space in between plants to allow for deep root systems to develop. To give you an idea of how deep their root systems can potentially be, the root system of a seed grown tomato plant can develop a taproot system of up to 5 feet deep! Starter plants can have root systems up to 3 feet deep and the roots are also more spread out than a taproot system. Planting deep and giving each tomato plant adequate space (from each other or from other plants) is key for a nice and healthy tomato plant. If you have limited space, please check out my previous article Container Gardening for Your Patio or Balcony for some great tips on how you can grow perfect tomatoes even in containers!

2. Cow Manure

Cow manure is magic to any garden! This hack is known to grow large tomatoes and has been used for years by farmers and gardeners alike. After you dig deep holes for your tomato plants, you cover the bottom of each hole with a layer of cow manure. Next, add about ¼ inch of sawdust on top of the cow manure, then add more soil on top of the sawdust. Finally, plant your tomato plant.

3. Epsom Salt

Check out Survival Gardening Hacks To Achieve The Perfect Tomato Plant at https://survivallife.com/survival-gardening-hacks-tomato-plant/

Epsom salt is rich in magnesium and produces plentiful results for tomatoes, peppers, and other blooming plants. Add 1 teaspoon of epsom salt for every 1 gallon of water. Spray this mixture onto your tomato plants every 1-2 weeks. For this hack, I personally recommend spraying more towards the bottom of the stem and soil area and not directly on the leaves and the actual tomatoes.

4. Eggshells and Coffee

Check out Survival Gardening Hacks To Achieve The Perfect Tomato Plant at https://survivallife.com/survival-gardening-hacks-tomato-plant/

This is what some gardeners call “direct composting” which means you will add composting materials directly to the plant instead of the composting bin. Coffee grounds will add nitrogen to the soil surrounding the tomato plant. Next time you have your morning coffee, save the coffee grounds. Sprinkle an adequate amount of cooled coffee grounds to the soil about once every 1-2 weeks. Eggshells give any plant a nice calcium boost.

Simply sprinkle a ⅛  – ¼ inch layer of crushed eggshells to the soil surrounding the plant. After the shells start to decompose into the soil, it is safe to repeat this process as often as you like. The combo of the coffee grounds and eggshells will give you a beautiful and healthy tomato plant! For more information on composting, check out my article Composting For Beginners | The Building Blocks To A Better Harvest.

5. Raw Cotton

This is becoming quite popular with gardeners! The purpose of this technique is to hold the soil in place – a mulching technique of sorts. Gardeners swear by this and state that their tomato plants thrive! If you have access to a cotton gin or know someone with a cotton field, collect the cotton needed (after acquiring permission, of course) and simply place the cotton on the soil surrounding the plant.

6. Fish

Check out Survival Gardening Hacks To Achieve The Perfect Tomato Plant at https://survivallife.com/survival-gardening-hacks-tomato-plant/

This an old Native American technique and is another great example of direct composting. Fish will provide calcium, nitrogen, phosphorus, and other vitamins and minerals for your tomato plants. Using this technique will make them flourish! Fish heads are most commonly used for this technique. After you dig the deep holes for each of your tomato plants you just simply drop the fish head in and cover with a good amount of soil. You then add your tomato plant.

West Coast Seismic Alert: 2 Alaskan Volcanoes Erupt As Earthquake Swarms At Mount St. Helens Raise Concerns

Volcano-Public-Domain-460x307

Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainier and Mount Hood are all major volcanoes that lie along the infamous “Ring of Fire” that runs down the west coast of the United States, and all of the seismic activity that has been taking place in the region has many concerned about what may happen next.  Earlier this month, I wrote about how 45 earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 or greater hit Alaska in just one 24 hour period.  This week, it is volcanic activity that is raising concerns.  The earthquake swarms at Mount St. Helens are making headlines all over the globe, and on Tuesday two major volcanoes in Alaska suddenly erupted on the exact same day

An eruption at Bogoslof volcano – one of two to erupt in the Aleutian Islands Tuesday – is its first after more than two months of inactivity, causing ash to fall in a nearby community before drifting south over the Pacific Ocean.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory said Tuesday night’s eruption at the volcano about 60 miles west of Unalaska, which began just after 10:30 p.m. and lasted for 73 minutes, sent a plume to an altitude of 34,000 feet.

Overall, 39 volcanoes around the world are either erupting right now or have recently erupted according to Volcano Discovery.

Most of those active volcanoes are along the Ring of Fire.

Fortunately, the U.S. portion of the Ring of Fire has been less active than other areas in recent years.  But experts assure us that will eventually change because seismic tension continues to build.  One example of this is what is happening at Mount St. Helens right now.  According to scientists, the famous volcano is currently going through what is known as a “magma recharge”

Since mid-April, small earthquakes have been cropping up deep beneath Mount St Helens at ‘relatively high rates,’ bringing roughly one tremor every few hours.

In the last 30 days, scientists have located 55 seismic events in the vicinity, and say there may be well over 100 earthquakes linked to the swarm so far.

The activity falls in line with magma recharge thought to be underway since 2008.

Someday it will erupt again, and the geologists that monitor these things are watching the latest developments very carefully

“Mount St. Helens is at normal background levels of activity,” Liz Westby, a geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey–Cascades Volcano Observatory, told ABC News. “But a bit out of the ordinary are several small magnitude earthquake swarms in March to May 2016, November 2016 and April 16 to May 5, 2017. During the April 16 to May 5, 2017, swarm, we detected well over 100 earthquakes, all below a magnitude 1.3.”

Personally, I am much more concerned about Mount Rainier than I am about Mount St. Helens.  Since the last time it erupted in the late 19th century, hundreds of thousands of people have moved into the danger zone around the volcano, and a full-blown eruption now would eclipse any other natural disaster in recorded U.S. history.

Over the last 30 days, there has also been a good bit of seismic activity at Mount Rainier, and much of it has been centered right along the core of the volcano…

Mount Rainier is capable of unleashing a flow of super-heated mud that could literally cover much of the Seattle/Tacoma area.  If you think that I am exaggerating, please see the following excerpt from Wikipedia

Mount Rainier is currently listed as a Decade Volcano, or one of the 16 volcanoes with the greatest likelihood of causing great loss of life and property if eruptive activity resumes.[45] If Mt. Rainier were to erupt as powerfully as Mount St. Helens did in its May 18, 1980 eruption, the effect would be cumulatively greater, because of the far more massive amounts of glacial ice locked on the volcano compared to Mount St. Helens,[37] the vastly more heavily populated areas surrounding Rainier, and the simple fact that Mt Rainier is a much bigger volcano, almost twice the size of St. Helens.[46]Lahars from Rainier pose the most risk to life and property,[47] as many communities lie atop older lahar deposits. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), about 150,000 people live on top of old lahar deposits of Rainier.[7] Not only is there much ice atop the volcano, the volcano is also slowly being weakened by hydrothermal activity. According to Geoff Clayton, a geologist with a Washington State Geology firm, RH2 Engineering, a repeat of the Osceola mudflow would destroy Enumclaw, Orting, Kent, Auburn, Puyallup, Sumner and all of Renton.[36] Such a mudflow might also reach down the Duwamish estuary and destroy parts of downtown Seattle, and cause tsunamis in Puget Sound and Lake Washington.[48] Rainier is also capable of producing pyroclastic flows and expelling lava.[48]

I keep warning about the dangers of a future eruption of Mount Rainier, and this is something that is so heavy on my heart that I even included an eruption of the volcano in my novel entitled The Beginning Of The End.  If you live in the Seattle/Tacoma area, you need to have a plan for a very rapid evacuation in the event a major eruption suddenly takes place.

On the other side of the world, scientists are warning that a supervolcano near Naples, Italy is reaching a critical stage.  The following comes from Newsweek

One of the world’s most dangerous supervolcanoes appears to be closer to erupting than we once thought, scientists have warned. Campi Flegrei in southern Italy has been showing signs of reawakening over the past 67 years, and new research indicates the volcano has been building energy throughout this period, increasing the risk that it will erupt.

Campi Flegrei is a huge volcanic field that sits about 9 miles to the west of Naples, a city home to over a million people. It is made up of 24 craters and edifices, and appears as a large depression on the surface of the land.

The volcano last erupted in 1538 after almost a century of pressure building up. But though it lasted over a week, this was a comparably small one—40,000 years ago, it produced a “super-colossal” eruption. This is the second highest measure on the volcanic explosivity index, the first being “mega-colossal,” like those seen at the Yellowstone supervolcano in the U.S. thousands of years ago.

For years I have been documenting how the crust of our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, and at some point a major seismic event is going to dramatically change life in America overnight.

Let us hope that day is delayed for as long as possible, but as certainly as you are reading this article it is coming.

Los Angeles Residents Turn Over Firearms…In Exchange For Gift Cards?

california-gun-confiscation-620x424

california-gun-confiscation-620x424

In an effort to get guns off the street, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) hosted their annual “gun buyback event” last Saturday. Between 8a.m. to 1p.m., residents were able to drop off firearms, no questions asked. In exchange for the gun, a gift card was rendered.

“This is one of the tools that we use to combat gun violence,” Det. Ben Meda of the LAPD told KCAL 9.

A $100 Target gift card was given for handguns, shotguns and rifles. A $200 Target gift card was given to those who turned over “assault rifles,” as defined by the State of California.

“The citywide Gun Buyback Program is an initiative of the Mayor’s Office of Gang Reduction and Youth Development (GRYD),” a media release states.

There was no limit on the number of firearms a person could bring; however, there was a limit on the number of gift cards one could obtain. Every year, there’s always one or two firearms the department has yet to see, said LAPD Sgt. Jack Richter.

“Every year, somebody opens up their trunk and our people say, ‘Haven’t seen one of those before,’” Richter told CBS 2.

What’s even more surprising? Some legal gun owners were turning over their firearms, when they decided they no longer had a need for them. Steve Fish said he and his wife decided to turn over two rifles, because their grandchildren are at their house quite frequently.

“The thought that our rifles end up being used in a crime or hurting someone? That’s not a good thing,” Fish told CBS 2.

According to the department, all firearms turned over during the event were destroyed within 48 hours. As of now, it is unknown how many guns were turned over during the event.

Watch CBS 2‘s coverage of the event.
