Nancy Sinatra: These Tweets Are Made For Hatin’

Back in 1967, Nancy Sinatra hit number one on the Billboard Top 100 by singing “Something Stupid” with her dad Frank.  Today, Nancy is topping the Twitter charts but just saying something stupid, like this:

https://twitter.com/NancySinatra/status/915180442667462657

Nancy must have got into high dudgeon after reading a Daily Kos article entitled, “The Burden of Proof is Squarely on the NRA:  How the Hell Are You Making Us Safer?”  There’s a link to the article in the tweet if you want to read it for yourself, but be warned:  It has the power to render the thoughts of an aging chanteuse all but incoherent, so heaven knows what it might do if loosed upon an unsuspecting world.  Better to just leave it in the fever swamps from whence it came.

Dana Loesch, a spokeswoman for the NRA, summed up the reaction of people who aren’t bat-guano crazy when she tweeted back:

Sadly, it’s a reaction typical of the left:  Whenever there’s a mass shooting, they want to take away guns from people who didn’t commit the crime—only this time, Nancy adds the twist of wanting to execute the people who didn’t do it as well.  Like I said, that Daily Kos is dangerous stuff.  Perhaps Congress should close the internet loophole so the emotionally unstable can’t access it so easily.

Or perhaps the left could just focus less on casting the NRA as the boogeyman and more on acknowledging that these mass shootings are a complex issue, involving not only access to guns but also mental illness, the role of the media in driving violence and the general breakdown in the moral fabric of the country.  Then there’s the delicate balancing of liberty and safety—you can have some of one and some of the other, but never one hundred percent of both at the same time.  Blaming the NRA for everything, while politically expedient, won’t change any of that.

Plus you can’t squeeze it all into a 140-character tweet—which seems to be the limit of Nancy Sinatra’s understanding of the issue.  On the bright side, though, at least Hillary Clinton can be happy.  Her tweets about Las Vegas are no longer the stupidest ones on Twitter.

UPDATE!

Nancy With the Hating Face must be getting some heat over her tweet, because she’s now saying it was all a joke:

Um, okay.  So I guess people should only be lined up and shot if they took her literally, or something?  Gallows humor really is in the eye of the beholder.

Girl Power: Dana Loesch Interviews Hunter Eva Shockey on New Book, Conservation

Blaze TV host and syndicated radio talk show host Dana Loesch interviewed hunter and new author Eva Shockey last night on her program.

Shockey–who’s been traveling around the U.S. promoting her new book “Taking Aim: Daring to Be Different, Happier and Healthier in the Great Outdoors“–joined Loesch on her program “Dana” to discuss why she wrote her book and why she uses her platform to be positive role model for women in hunting.

“I love how you reject every stereotype,” said Loesch about Shockey in the interview. “Because you’re like, ‘I’m feminine. I’m very lady-like.’ I’ve seen you out there with your bow … and your manicure’s on point. You embrace all of it and I think that redefines what people think about women who hunt.”

Here’s more from the interview:

Eva also explained that contrary to popular perceptions, hunters are strong conservationists. “We appreciate where our food comes from,” said Eva. She went on to explain that hunters “raise the most money for conservation of any other group on this planet … on top of that, we provide our own food. Instead of going to Whole Foods, we go hunting and we fill our freezer with meat that, for the rest of the year, we share with our family and with our friends. It’s no different than going to the grocery store, we just understand where it comes from. I think you have a greater appreciation for the animal.”

Originally from British Columbia, Canada, Eva Shockey rose to prominence here in the U.S. in the last five years and graced the cover of Field & Stream in 2014–one of America’s leading outdoor publications. She is one of the most popular outdoor personalities on social media and was recently listed as a Top Ten TV personality by Hollywood Reporter.
Here’s Eva’s recent interview on NRATV’s Cam and Company:

 

 

 

 

 

Shockey’s book is a great read. (Full disclosure: I was on her book Launch Team. You can watch my review of the book below):

In addition to hosting her own TV and radio programs, Dana Loesch also serves as a spokesperson for the National Rifle Association. It was only natural to see her interview Shockey, a fellow sportswoman who is one of the most well-versed public figures on Second Amendment issues.

These two women certainly ooze true female empowerment, and it’s refreshing to see Ms. Shockey blazing the trail for more women in hunting and shooting sports. If you haven’t already, check out “Taking Aim” today!

New York Congresswoman Kathleen Rice Calls Dana Loesch a “Domestic Security Threat”




Katleen Rice is the dumb as dirt congress-idiot from New York who is scared of little ol’ Dana Loesch. Rice believes both Loesch and the NRA must be considered domestic security threats under President Trump.

I guess the representative would be okay with one of her progressive defenders taking hostile action against Loesch. How else would one stop a domestic security threat who is not violating any laws? Progressives, by the way, have been targeting Dana Loesch and her children and husband for harassment.

Is it any wonder Dana Loesch supports the second amendment? With nutjobs like Kathleen Rice publicly calling her a domestic security threat, it is only responsible to be well armed to protect against nutters who might feed off Rice’s rhetoric.

It is also grossly irresponsible of Rice to target a private American citizen for harassment. When President Trump did that in the past, Rice was outraged. Now she has become Trumplike.

I just donated $100.00 to the National Rifle Association in Kathleen Rice’s honor. The best defense against a congressman targeting a private citizen for harassment is a well armed militia and an advocacy group dedicated to that well armed militia. You can donate here.

New WH Comms Director in ’12: We Have 50% of Guns, Need More Gun Control

Thanks to the watchful eye of radio talk show host Dana Loesch, this alarming tweet from the incoming White House Communications Director will have a lot of Trump supporters scratching their heads. Scaramucci tweeted his support for more gun control in August 2012:

https://twitter.com/Scaramucci/status/232349114979975168

Dana is right to ask if he’s changed his mind on the issue.

https://twitter.com/DLoesch/status/888456591678242816

Scaramucci will be filling the position outgoing White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer temporarily filled for the past Communications Director, who left earlier this year.

To ensure fewer communications gaffes and mishaps, an effective communicator must be at the helms of this position. Will that be Scaramucci? If he still holds these aforementioned tweets, that’s very concerning. We shall see.

Dana Loesch Isn’t Inciting Violence. The Left Is.

There’s a lot of brouhaha surrounding a April 2017 National Rifle Association ad featuring syndicated radio talk show personality and Blaze TV host Dana Loesch. Many folks on the Left–particularly those armed with gun control ties and money to support them– are suggesting she’s inciting violence. Many have claimed she’s inciting a “civil war” in the ad in question. Huh?

Here’s the ad for your viewing pleasure:

Below is the full transcript:

“They use their media to assassinate real news. They use their schools to teach children that their president is another Hitler. They use their movie stars and singers and comedy shows and award shows to repeat their narrative over and over again. And then they use their ex-president to endorse the resistance.

“All to make them march, make them protest, make them scream racism and sexism and xenophobia and homophobia. To smash windows, burn cars, shut down interstates and airports, bully and terrorize the law-abiding — until the only option left is for the police to do their jobs and stop the madness.

“And when that happens, they’ll use it as an excuse for their outrage. The only way we stop this, the only way we save our country and our freedom, is to fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth. I’m the National Rifle Association of America, and I’m freedom’s safest place.”

Please tell us how this script incites violence? Metaphors are now triggering? This is rather ironic from a group of individuals who’ve been reluctant to condemn death threats on Republican lawmakers, those who’ve welcomed the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, and those who’ve said the Left must mount physical “resistance” against the Trump administration. Spare us the faux concern.

Here’s the stream of tweets coming from the Left–particularly those who hold anti-gun views and some who have even incited violence against Republicans.

 

Here’s Dana’s commentary on the subject:

Others came to Dana’s defense to debunk the accusations being flung her way:

https://twitter.com/politicalelle/status/880427175140139008

Dana Loesch isn’t the enemy. She’s one of the most level-headed commentators out there. Why is the Left projecting their violent tendencies onto her? What do they have to hide? What happened to “when they go low, we go high”?

Are there duds who claim to be on the Right who are inciting violence? Yes–arguably in the form of the so-called alternative right (which doesn’t comprise constitutional conservatism). There are bad actors on both sides who have incited violence in recent memory. But the blame, as it currently stands, rests on politically charged, anti-Republican, anti-conservative rhetoric being propped up by the cultural, political, and academic elites on the Left in the present day.

The resistance being mounted against President Trump – like him or not – is unwarranted. Don’t like him as president? You can’t change the fact. Get over it, accept it, and agree to disagree. Learn to be civil again.

NEW: Dana Loesch Lands Awesome Spokesperson Role with NRA

Conservative commentator and gun gal Dana Loesch has a new role with the National Rifle Association:  Special Assistant to the Executive Vice President for Public Communication. Previously, Loesch served as a Special Advisor on Women’s Policy Issues and currently hosts a show on their TV network, NRATV.

“During the past year Dana has proven herself to be a powerful voice for the Second Amendment rights of all Americans,” Wayne LaPierre said in a press release. “It is clear that Dana has the communication skills, experience, and natural ability to serve our organization well as one its very public faces in the news media.”

He added, “I’ve been impressed with Dana’s command of the issues facing the NRA, as well as her ability to communicate our positions and connect with women, and men, on those issues.”

Here’s more from Loesch on the announcement:

Many took it to social media to congratulate Dana on her new spokesperson role:

 

https://twitter.com/DanaTheBlaze/status/834090439040983044

Dana Loesch couldn’t be a better fit for this role. Her tireless, impassioned defense of Second Amendment issues has made her a leader in the shooting sports. Moreover, she helps give life to the issue as a woman, mom, and constitutionalist. The world could use more Dana Loesch’s and fewer Shannon Watts’.

Loesch currently hosts a popular syndicated radio show and “Dana” on The Blaze. She is a frequent guest on major TV networks where she often appears on behalf of the NRA. Dana has also authored two bestseller books, Hands Off My Guns (2014) and Flyover Nation (2016).

I’m proud to know Dana and am confident she’ll excel in this role. You go girl!

 

Beer Goggles For Trump

It’s astonishing how much radioactive dirt is out there, and has been for years, on Donald Trump.

Radio host and Second Amendment activist author Dana Loesch has compiled a list of the worst of Trump’s flirtations with organized crime figures, drug convicts and use of undocumented workers to build his Trump Tower.

This stuff is so radioactive that it would have sunk any other candidate months ago. Nobody had to dig it up, Loesch simply compiled what was “public domain as reported in the press, easily found everywhere online.”

But Trump isn’t even dinged by it, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, none of them have really pounced on it. Anderson Cooper, an expert interviewer and one of CNN’s best, tossed softball questions to Trump at the town hall Thursday night (fast food? really?).

It offers proof that the networks are invested in Trump because he helps ratings. Not that some suit has stifled editorial control, not so crass, but the press itself has bought into the bright lights surrounding Trump. They like having him on their shows. They like having him around because he helps their ratings.

They are scared of taking him on because of the backlash–his minions Trumpkins are very effective at messing with people’s personal lives and Trump eggs them on with incendiary tweets and statements.

Even when something is patently false and Trump deletes his own tweets, he goes on talking to crowds as if it’s true, like with Tom Coburn’s fabricated quote on Ted Cruz.

Trump’s entire campaign is now an illusion based on psychology mind tricks.

You know when you’ve been waiting in a very long line, and you finally get toward the front, you’ve become invested in the line. It’s your line. If somebody cuts 10 people in front of you, you’ll likely join in their public stoning. If someone cuts 10 people behind you, you’ll do the same, because the line is to be defended, even if the person cutting is the mother of an 8-year-old sitting in a wheelchair. Stone first, ask questions later.

If you suddenly learn that the line you’ve been in wasn’t for Taylor Swift concert tickets, but for Nickelback (apologies to them, the butt of all music jokes that don’t involve Rickrolling), you might hold on to hope that they really do have Swift tickets at the end, or why else would all these people be lining up? You want to get to the front of the line to find out for yourself, because you’ve already invested all this time.

Well, that’s the Trump campaign. It’s a bandwagon without a band. It’s an empty man peddling his empty rhetoric and people line up for it to see what a billionaire who speaks at a fourth grade level is really like. He’s really like the guy Dana Loesch found.

We’ve been trying to tell you, you’re going to be disappointed if this man gets into office. But now you, the press and all the attention-seekers who want to ride the Trump publicity express are invested in his campaign.

Why leave now? Because it’s an illusion. You’ll feel guilty and stupid later. You’re wearing beer goggles and the person at the bar is the stunning vision of beauty and grace you are seeing. In the morning, you’ll want to chew your arm off to get away.

Read Loesch’s sobering mountain of evidence. Get away now. Trump is an illusion and the sooner we get back to electing a conservative, the better chance we have of actually doing something to reverse eight years of debilitating damage Obama has done to the country.

Helen Nianias (@helennianias) Blatantly Distorts Dana Loesch’s Point in the UK’s Independent

I’m not sure if Helen Nianias is intentionally malicious or just mentally defective. Or perhaps I should embrace the healing power of “and.” Either way, she and the UK Independent have blatantly distorted talk radio show host Dana Loesch’s cogent point on civil liberties.

They headlined their story on Dana’s comments, “Radio host Dana Loesch says gay people will be stoned to death if Christians can’t discriminate against them”. That is the actual headline.

You must muddy through a story polluted with miscellanea to get to the bottom of the piece where you arrive at this:

“If I’m not speaking up [while] you’re losing rights then what will happen to me when the day comes, if someone comes to me? What if you’re stoned for walking out in the street for being gay?” she argues. “I mean – come on. That’s where the conversation needs to go.”

So the headline suggests gays will be stoned if Christians cannot discriminate against them.

What Loesch actually says is that Christians need to stand up against gays being stoned in the Middle East and elsewhere and gay rights activists should be standing up for Christians, instead of targeting their businesses in the United States.

A normal person should get that point. Helen Nianias is not a normal person. She equates an Amazon Prime advertisement with “corporate rape,” which suggests she’s actually a malicious, agenda driven nutter.

She also lacks basic comprehension when it comes to Dana Loesch’s point.
