President Trump’s legal team on Saturday issued a full-throttle defense to the articles of impeachment, refuting the substance and process of the charges while accusing House Democrats of engaging in a “dangerous attack” on the right of the American people to freely choose their president.
“This is a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election — now just months away,” the legal filing said. “The highly partisan and reckless obsession with impeaching the president began the day he was inaugurated and continues to this day.”

An NBC News journo shamefully defamed thousands of Virginians who plan on attending an upcoming Second Amendment Rally at the state capital, claiming that they were convening for a “white nationalist rally” on a Sunday tweet.
Monday’s Second Amendment Rally is expected to draw thousands of gun rights supporters. The event has nothing to do with white nationalism, and instead is occurring to protest Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s wide-reaching gun control package he’s seeking to impose upon the people of the state.

“We do not have to invade the United States, we will destroy you from within”, a quote often attributed to former Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.
As is often the case about controversial historical figures, quotes attributed to them may or may not have actually been uttered exactly as recorded in history, perceptions and memories often differ or fade.
Virginia’s annual “Lobby Day” pro-second-amendment demonstration will be noticeably larger this year, thanks to the fact that the Democrats who control Virginia’s governorship and both houses in the General Assembly are plotting sweeping gun control legislation that could include red flag laws, limits on handgun purchases, universal background checks and a draconian assault weapons ban.

In 2018, International Man published an essay entitled, “The Right to Bear Arms,” in which I described the events that inspired America’s founding fathers to write the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
The reason that they were so adamant about the right to bear arms was that the events that occurred in Williamsburg, Virginia, that inspired its creation were still fresh in the mind of Thomas Jefferson, who had been living in Williamsburg at the time.
In 1776, the colonists, having become distrustful of British rule, began to form militias. In response, Governor Dunmore, who represented King George, seized all the gunpowder and armaments that were stored in the brick magazine for the protection of the colonists.
