US agrees to ‘Full Implementation’ of United Nations gun control pact

Has Australia and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop also agreed to sign us up?

Posted on July 8, 2018

Free Thought Project – by Rachel Blevins

While the United States is typically set apart from other countries when it comes to gun laws, a recent conference with the United Nations has raised major red flags, as the U.S. agreed to enact “full implementation” of an international agreement on gun control that will violate Americans’ constitutional rights by adding their personal information to a global database.

The Third Review Conference (RevCon) of the United Nations’ Program of Action (PoA) on Small Arms and Light Weapons was held in New York last week with a 2018 agreement, which states that its purpose is to serve as “a renewed commitment to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects.”

A strong advocate for private gun ownership and the removal of gun registration is federal MP Bob Katter at a pistol range.

“We, the States participating in the third United Nations Conference to review progress made in the implementation of the Program of Action to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects, convened at United Nations Headquarters in New York from 18 to 29 June 2018 to review progress made in implementation and identify priorities for strengthened implementation, reaffirm our commitment to the full and effective implementation of all of the provisions of the Program of Action and the International Tracing Instrument, with a view to ending the human suffering caused by the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons.”

The agreement states that it will act as an “international instrument to enable states to identify and trace, in a timely and reliable manner,” light arms and small weapons, while “bearing in mind the different situations, capacities, and priorities of States and regions.” All the while, it will be tracking “progress made in the implementation of the International Tracing Instrument; note the challenges to the implementation of the Instrument, whether continuing, recent or emerging.”

The conflict and post-conflict situations addressed by the agreement include the need for “disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programs and community violence reduction programs,” along with international instruments, such as, “regular inventories, surplus disposal, including through destruction, and the implementation of appropriate measures when losses are detected.”

The agreement also listed management and security measures that would include “marking, record-keeping and, as appropriate, tracing by law enforcement authorities, for illicit small arms and light weapons that are found, seized, or recovered in conflict and post-conflict situations.” 

In order to implement the agreement on a national level, the Program of Action lists a series of requirements for each government to follow:

  1. To establish or strengthen national laws, regulations and administrative procedures in support of the full and effective implementation of the Program of Action.
  2. To strengthen coordinated national approaches for the implementation of the Program of Action, including, as appropriate, the establishment or designation of national coordination agencies or bodies involving relevant government agencies, including those responsible for law enforcement, border control and export and import licensing.
  3. To promote the full participation and representation of women in mechanisms relating to the implementation of the Program of Actionand to encourage strong cooperation with civil society, parliamentarians, industry and the private sector.
  4. To establish or designate a national point of contact to act as a liaison between States on matters relating to the implementation of the Program of Action, and to share and update this information regularly, and to provide the point of contact with the necessary means to carry out its role.
  5. To encourage the development and implementation of national action plans or other national policies in support of the implementation of the Program of Action by making better use of existing information to improve the measurement of progress and to coordinate the development and implementation of such plans or policies, as appropriate, in collaboration with relevant stakeholders, including those from civil society and industry, with those relevant to target 16.4 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to the relevant United Nations resolution on women, disarmament, non-proliferation and arms control.
  6. To significantly reduce the illicit flows of small arms and light weapons, as appropriate, through illicit weapons recovery and voluntary surrender programs.

Americans who are reading the agreement may be thinking that in order to fully implement it in the United States, it would require a full repeal of the Second Amendment—but this Program of Action appears to be the overreaching plan that has already been proposed, in part, in individual laws introduced on national and local levels in the U.S.

Media coverage and calls for stricter gun control on the local level are having a real effect as multiple cities pass bans on “assault rifles.” Residents in Deerfield, Illinois, were forced to turn in all guns that qualify as assault weapons last month, or face fines of $1,000 a day if they did not comply.

The city council in Boulder, Colorado, has followed suit by unanimously passing a ban on the sale and possession of assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and bump stocks, giving residents until July 15 to comply. Massachusetts and New Jersey have also passed statewide bans on bump stocks, and police were shocked to find that only a few people complied by turning in the newly illegal accessories.

On the national level, when gun control legislation was introduced in Congress last year, it came in the form of the Fix NICS Act, which was later rebranded as the STOP School Violence Act and signed into law in March after it was quietly included in the 2018 Omnibus Appropriations bill. The legislation amends the agencies that have control over the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which determines whether Americans are allowed to own guns.

As The Free Thought Project has reported, the changes to the NICS system—which received support from Democrats, Republicans, and even the NRA—put pressure on federal agencies and states to report as many names as possible, “making it only a matter of time before this list becomes so large that nearly any activity could serve to remove your Second Amendment rights.”

The NICS database will now continue to grow in the U.S. with government agencies receiving incentives for their contributions, and the United States’ involvement with the United Nations gives it the perfect setup to turn over all of its information on American citizens in the NICS database, in order to fully cooperate with the UN’s Program of Action.

As always, when rights are stripped away and civil liberties are ignored, it is done in the name of “safety and security,” even though, as history has shown, the opposite is true.

Illinois county declares itself a sanctuary for gun owners

When will an Australian local government district do the same?

Jack Burns is an educator, journalist, investigative reporter, and advocate of natural medicine. This article first appeared at The Free Thought Project.

Amid political buzzwords of “sanctuary cities” and “gun bans,” one Illinois county decided to wade into the fray by declaring itself a sanctuary for gun owners. The Effingham County board voted this past week, 8-1, to order its employees not to enforce any laws that would “unconstitutionally restrict the Second Amendment” to the U.S. Constitution.

Effingham County State’s Attorney Bryan Kibler said the measure is meant to act as a warning shot to tell the state legislature that the county does not want unnecessary gun control measures, or for the sale of firearms to be jeopardized. The resolution states:

The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms is guaranteed as an Individual Right under the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and under the Constitution of the State of Illinois, and; the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms for defense of Life, Liberty, and Property is regarded as an Inalienable Right by the People of Effingham County, Illinois, and the People of Effingham County, Illinois, derive economic benefit from all safe forms of firearms recreation, hunting, and shooting conducted within Effingham County using all types of firearms allowable under the United States Constitution.

Board member David Campbell told Fox News that the county “decided it’s time for someone to take a hard stand.” He said the board modeled their resolution on other counties which have adopted similar measures.

The US Second Amendment allows citizens to bear arms even against out-of-control government. Australia desperately needs such an amendment before the people do it in any case.

The resolution, which Kibler said is “largely symbolic,” was drafted by the board as a response to what it perceives as an attack on the Second Amendment by the State of Illinois and its General Assembly.

“So we thought … why don’t we just make this a sanctuary county like they would for undocumented immigrants? So we did flip the script on it,” Kibler told Fox and Friends, noting that the goal of the resolution is to make it known “to the Illinois general assembly that if they keep on this path of stripping away Second Amendment rights [from gun owners] there’s going to be blowback from Southern Illinois.”

Ever since the resolution passed in Effingham, Kibler said the county has had numerous requests for a draft of the resolution to be passed in other counties in the state. The attorney pointed to bills being considered by the Illinois General Assembly that would restrict the purchase of ammunition to those aged 21 and older as proof that the state is slowly chipping away at individual freedoms.

Kibler said that when the county chose to use the word “sanctuary” in their resolution they received the attention they were seeking. “The Chicago legislation comes up with new… proposals every year which take away our Second Amendment rights,” he said. “So we can send a kid off to war…when he comes home…it’s going to be illegal for him to buy a gun with more than 10 rounds in it.”

Effingham County’s “sanctuary” resolution echoes Iroquois County’s similar resolution adopted in March, decrying the consideration of numerous gun control bills inside the Illinois General Assembly. In a statement, the Iroquois County said the current gun control measures being considered by the state legislature will infringe on their citizens’ rights to be able to defend themselves, engage in recreational hunting and shooting, and it will make instant felons out of any citizen under 21 who fails to surrender their weapons under the new proposed laws.

Similarly, Iroquois also denounced the state General Assembly’s gun control plans, saying they would effectively ban all private and club owned gun ranges and make it nearly impossible for individuals who work late at night and in dangerous jobs to wear body armor for protection, which would conceivably include motorcyclists who wear body armor for personal protection while cycling.

Board member David Campbell told Fox News that the county “decided it’s time for someone to take a hard stand.” He said the board modeled their resolution on other counties which have adopted similar measures.

The resolution, which Kibler said is “largely symbolic,” was drafted by the board as a response to what it perceives as an attack on the Second Amendment by the State of Illinois and its General Assembly.

The resolution in Effingham County comes just weeks after Deerfield, Illinois, voted to ban nearly all modern weapons. While Deerfield’s ban is not symbolic, Effingham County’s resolution really does not have any teeth to it. Kibler noted that if the state decides to ban weapons as Chicago has done, there is really nothing a county or local law enforcement can do.

Residents in Deerfield were given 60 days to surrender their “assault weapons” or face fines of $1000 per day per gun. Upon careful reading of the ordinance, it appears that residents will be left with only revolvers, .22 caliber “plinking” rifles, and double barrel shotguns to defend their homes and families from criminals who could not care less about the law.

Fines for not disposing of the weapons range from $250 to $1000 per day per gun for those who choose not to comply with the city’s ordinance. While a fine may seem reasonable to some, as TFTP has reported on multiple occasions, failure to pay fines always results in police action. It is not far-fetched to predict major turmoil and arrests in the event of non-compliance.- Activist Post

Amendments to Tasmania’s gun laws go before a committee

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has written to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull asking for him to intervene before Tasmania’s re-elected Liberal Government frees up the State’s gun laws.

Two days before the Tasmania election, the Liberals dropped a grenade – that if they won government they would amend the tough and ineffective laws to allow farmers and sporting shooters access to semi-auto rifles and shotguns.

However the Liberal Government had been in secret discussions with farming groups and the shooting lobby for six weeks prior to the election.

The glaring elephant in the room, is the bona fides of the Port Arthur massacre. The people’s court after dissecting the overwhelming evidence  to the contrary has decided Martin Bryant did not shoot any person at the Broad Arrow Café – he was miles away at the time of the shooting. His mother and two other witnesses who knew Martin confirmed this fact with investigators yet none was called to give evidence to Tasmania Police.

Soon to be deposed Opposition Leader,Bill Shorten (Shortbrains) has asked PM Turnbull to intervene over sensible and much-needed changes to Tasmania’s gun laws, promised before the election on March 3.

The so-called National Firearms Agreement has no effect in law, it is only an agreement between the States because the Commonwealth cannot legislate firearms law for the States.

If any State wishes to amend their respective gun laws they can do so with impunity. When the Queensland National Party Government in 1997 said it would not enact the pre-packaged gun laws presented by the Federal Government, PM John Howard threatened to withhold Commonwealth money from the State.

The Nationals leader Rob (Bubbles) Borbidge buckled and pushed the new laws through Parliament.

Shorten, soon to be deposed by Anthony Albanese, is barking up the wrong tree, because the Tasmania Liberals can tell him to go to hell where he belongs.

Likewise Turnbull would be a fool to intervene, but in any case there is nothing he can do. Premier Will Hodgman needs all the support he can get. Cairns News urges Tasmanian readers to phone Will Hodgman and give him support over the proposed changes to the gun laws.

He should take notice because it was the gun lobby which got his government over the line.

Yesterday, after the usual pressure from the ABC, Mr Hodgman said the amendments would be put before a committee to examine the effects and if they would contravene the national agreement.

What happens next?

 

First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the gun owners and I did not speak because I handed mine in

Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Patsy Martin Bryant rots in jail while the Tasmanian Liberals promise to free-up gun laws

Author Keith Noble, of ‘Mass Murder; official killing in Tasmania’  has published the most complete record of the Port Arthur massacre scam available in the world today. Below Mr Noble gives an up-to-date analysis of the case.

In his witness statement given on 28APR1996, Peter David Crosswell (spelt Croswell in other places) states this in relation to the gunman who he saw up close in the Broad Arrow Café at the Port Arthur Historic Site: “I didn’t move but I could see his sandshoes across the floor.” Mr. Crosswell who was wounded in that café has the reputation of being a decent person – a truth teller, not a liar. He was one of several eyewitnesses who saw the gunman and who stated that person was not Martin Bryant. Note that the only eyewitness (James Clement Laycock) who personally knew Martin Bryant BEFORE the incident clearly states in his witness statement (10MAY1996) that the gunman he saw was not Martin Bryant.

Austrian author Keith Noble’s acclaimed work on the Port Arthur massacre which has left patsy Martin Bryant rotting in Tasmania’s Risdon jail.

The following is an extract from the book MASS MURDER: Official Killing in Tasmania, Australia (2nd edition; 2014; n.23, p.388): “At least two other witnesses have said the gunman was wearing a soft type of footwear commonly referred to as runners, trainers, or sandshoes. But it gets complicated when two facts are raised: i. The alleged gunman was said to have been wearing lace-up boots before the shooting on that Sunday (see Kessarios); and, ii. The alleged gunman was said to be wearing Blundstone-type* boots during the incident, at the tollbooth specifically. (see Rabe) So how could this be? If there was only one gunman, it means he must have put on three different types of footwear and one of those times must have been inside the yellow Volvo, between the parking lot and the tollbooth. Why? To create uncertainty perhaps. Or, were there two people the subject of these different footwear sightings? (* Quality boot made by Tasmanian company Blundstone which did not make runners/sandshoes/sneakers in and prior to 1996.)”

It is this type of evidence, given by many witnesses in their statements (see extracts in the book MASS MURDER), which confirms again and again that there is so much REASONABLE DOUBT associated with the case, that only unthinking sheeple, corrupt officials, and the complicit barristers (all of whom are officers of the court) in Tasmania say otherwise. And because there are so many truthful facts which disprove the allegations of the State, the innocent and retarded (IQ66) Martin Bryant was coerced and mentally tortured for over six months after which he repeated what the convicted criminal lawyer John Avery pressured him to say – then he was locked away FOREVER WITH NO TRIAL – repeat, FOREVER WITH NO TRIAL. Note that a hearing in a courthouse or anywhere else is not a trial. And also note that scum Avery was supposed to defend Martin Bryant. But all Avery did was pressure him relentlessly to repeat Avery’s plea of guilty. The truth is, Martin Bryant never had any ethical legal representation at any time and he was unable to engage another lawyer because the State had confiscated all his assets – his money and his home. That is what you are to accept as justice in Australia. The State accused innocent Martin Bryant of so much – yet, it was unwilling (and unable) to prove one single thing against him in a sound trial conducted by an ethical judge. Martin was the doomed PATSY.

There is no hard evidence proving Martin Bryant was the gunman or one of the gunmen. For example, not a single fingerprint was ever presented as proof of Martin Bryant’s involvement in the massacre. It is known with absolute certainty from the witness statements and from a police video that the gunman handled food-related things and a tray inside the café and that he left a video camera on a café table. All these things would have been covered with his fingerprints – obviously not Martin Bryant’s or we would have heard about them. The official narrative of the Port Arthur Massacre is grossly corrupt – in the Australian vernacular, it is complete bull! free pdf copies of the 694pp. book MASS MURDER: Official Killing in Tasmania, Australia (2nd edition 2014), of 20 YEARS CORRUPTION, DECEPTION, LIES, of CLASSIC KANGAROO COURT CASE, and of INTERNATIONAL MEDIA RELEASE (relates to that embalmer, ex-cop, and ex-senator Stephen Parry who has confirmed – in writing – prior knowledge of the massacre) are available from martinbryantisinnocent@gmail.com & bigwormbooks@gmx.net) There is no copyright on any of these documents.

Note: Now based in Austria, Mr Noble has written other books about government-sponsored murder including the disappearance of Peter Falconio near Barrow Creek in the Northern Territory in 2001. Bradley Murdoch was eventually convicted of Falconio’s murder. Keith Noble says the NT police grabbed Murdoch after a hopelessly compromised and bungled investigation including a dodgy statement from girlfriend Joanna Lees then charged him for the murder without ever finding a body.

Australian Broadcasting Corporation perpetuates the Port Arthur massacre myth

by investigative journalist and editor-at-large Gil Hanrahan

The ABC has been caught out acting as an agent of government perpetuating the lies and terrible media misinformation that surrounds the Port Arthur massacre where 35 people allegedly were killed by a lone shooter, Martin Bryant.

For 22 years the ABC and other mainstream media have been paramount in manipulating the true story of Port Arthur, how a drill turned into a massacre which has been covered up at the highest levels of government.

ABC Hobart journalist Fiona Blackwood was either under instruction or did not bother to do any basic research when she claimed Martin Bryant shot Peter Croswell, instead perpetuating the now thoroughly discredited line that intellectually impaired Bryant was the shooter.

This week the Tasmania Liberal Party Government, in election mode, announced it will free up the stringent provisions of the state’s firearms laws enacted by all states after the Port Arthur event in 1996.

The  Liberals have proposed changes to gun laws which would give farm workers and sporting shooters greater access to category C weapons, including pump-action shotguns, self-loading rifles and silencers.

The usual cries of horror by the media and now a survivor of the shooting, are screaming foul that the laws should not be tampered with and left alone.

Port Arthur shooting survivor Peter Croswell does not want any changes made to gun laws by the Tasmania Liberals should they win today’s state election.

The excerpt below from an ABC news transcript released on March 2, 2018, clearly shows how a manipulative journalist, Fiona Blackwood, has inferred Port Arthur victim Peter Croswell was shot by Martin Bryant.

“…survivor Peter Crosswell said he would be devastated if Tasmania’s gun laws were weakened in any way.

Mr Crosswell was shot by Martin Bryant while lying on the ground trying to protect two women.

He was one of the few people to survive the shooting massacre inside the Broad Arrow Cafe at the convict-era tourism site at Port Arthur in 1996, later being awarded a bravery medal for his actions.

“After Port Arthur, there was a lot of work put in by a lot of people, a lot of people were in a great deal of pain then, to get these gun laws in place,” Mr Croswell said….”

Nowhere in the ABC article was Mr Croswell directly quoted as saying Martin Bryant shot him.

Thanks to expatriate Australian, now Austrian-based investigative journalist and author Keith Noble, his hallmark work MASS MURDER: Official Killing in Tasmania, Australia (2nd edition; 2014) reveals a great deal about the massacre the Federal Government would not like published in the news media.

Indeed on April 28,1996, the same day he was shot Mr Croswell was shown a number of photos including one of Martin Bryant and in his statement told police:

WITNESS:   CROSSWELL, Peter David

DATE:          28 April 1996 (same day as incident)

CONCERNS: “At this point a male person stood up. He yelled out something like ‘No No Not Here.’ I then saw the gun­man shoot this guy in the head.” &
“I didn’t move but I could see his sandshoes across the floor.” &“I then saw a yellow car of some description leave the car park.”

WITNESS:   CROSSWELL, Peter David

DATE:          1 July 1996 (63 days after incident)

CONCERNS: “…long shoulder length blonde hair.” &

                    “I do however remember that he was carrying a long bag when he came into the restaurant. The bag appeared to be heavy.” &

                    “I have been shown a photograph identification board by Detective GHEDINI which consisted of thirty (30) photo­ graphs of male persons. I am unable to identify any of these males as being responsible for the shootings in­ side the Broad Arrow Café.”

A footnote by author Keith Noble identifies the man who stood up in the Broad Arrow café when the shooting started:

“This witness(Peter Crosswell) was wounded inside the café. To his credit and that of witnesses Pamelia (sic) Law and Thelma Walker who were with Crosswell, none of them identified Martin Bryant as the gunman. It would have been easy for them to say it was Martin. They all saw the gunman, but they all stated the truth – they did not see Martin Bryant. Thank you. The person this witness saw get shot inside the cafe, the person who called out “No No Not Here,” is believed to be Anthony Nightingale, a suspected intelligence agent. (see INDEX)”

The news clip from ABC archives shows Mr Croswell in hospital, but his narrative does not mention Martin Bryant.

This is the depth of depravity into which our mainstream media will prostitute themselves to keep the real truth from the public.

We could make excuses for the ABC journalist as she would have been a young girl at the time of Port Arthur, however she was either under instruction or had not bothered to do any basic research about the events of that fateful day at one of Tasmania’s iconic convict outposts.

NOTE: Cairns News does not in any way suggest Peter David Croswell is involved in a cover-up of the actual events at Port Arthur, then or now. Major amendments to Australia’s costly, unworkable and ineffective gun laws are long overdue consequently the Cairns News editorial board wishes the Tasmania Liberal Party all the best for the election and sincerely hopes it can retain government. Read our archives for more in-depth investigations of this tragic event. There you will discover a photograph and the names of the real shooters, as well as the true reason why the President of the Australian senate was forced to quit Parliament last year.

Gun amnesty a fizzer

National Firearms Amnesty a waste of resources

The results of the amnesty were nothing out of the box with not many semi-auto and automatic firearms handed in.

Of the overall 57,324 recorded, one third were destroyed and the balance was registered in various states and returned to the owners.

As we have stated many times in the past it is a fallacy to claim registered guns help solve crime. They don’t and there are no authentic studies or figures to say this helps to track gun crime.

There are probably over 1.5 million .22 calibre rifles registered across the nation and another 200,000 that are not registered. How does this make the unregistered guns illegal?

This handed-in rocket launcher is no more dangerous than the thousands of light artillery pieces and inert rifles or tanks found at any Australian RSL club.

Thousands of unregistered motor vehicles sit in yards and paddocks across Australia. Does that make them illegal?

People have been conditioned into thinking because a firearm sits in a cupboard for years waiting for a need on a rainy day then these guns are illegal?

Wakey wakey they are no more illegal than the cars even if we had legitimate government.

Nearly 2900 handguns were handed in plus a nice little rocket launcher, recovered from a dump, no doubt having its origins with army ordinance. It found its way to the crusher.

Only 2500  semi-automatic firearms were handed in.

New South Wales received the highest number of firearms at 24,831, followed by Queensland on 16,375. Victorians handed in 9,175 guns.

Federal Minister for Law Enforcement Angus Taylor said the weapons were no longer on the “grey market”, which refers to guns that are not registered and not in the hands of criminals.

This Minister has no idea what he is talking about. He thinks criminals might get their hands on these guns. There would be none to hand in if this were the case.

You only made more criminals out of law abiding citizens who foolishly handed them in Mr Taylor.

What enterprising bank robber would use this 170 year old Tower Enfield flintlock pistol?

When these gun owners became ‘licenced’ all of their personal details were entered into the federal Crim Trac records along with tens of thousands of real criminals who, incidentally, have not handed in their guns.

So-called government is criminally stupid.

Senator David Leyonhjelm, an avid shooter and gun advocate, does not think it has achieved much at all.

“We know it makes no difference to anything that really matters,” Senator Leyonhjelm said.

 

“The Government says its taking guns off the street. The guns that it gets in an amnesty were never on the street. They’re grandpa’s old guns. They were in the back of a cupboard or wardrobe in a ceiling somewhere. They were never going to be used in a crime.”

These ancient guns were handed in. It is impossible to source ammo for any of these antique guns.

  • Norinco SKK semi-automatic rifle (the remaining 900,000 are buried)
  • A WWII Russian PPSH submachine gun
  • Martini Henry rifle circa 1873
  • Spandau MG08 heavy machine gun(should be given to a RSL club)
  • Beaumont Adams Revolver circa 1856
  • A homemade machine gun

New poll: Trump here to stay much to the disgust of Hilary and the anti-gunners

from Horn News, by Frank Holmes

Donald Trump dropped a bombshell when he announced he will run for re-election almost three years before the election — but the voting group that will give him a second term will stun both liberals and the legacy media.

It’s been right there in the polls for everyone to see. But the media don’t report it. The Democrats are in denial. And the liberals hope they will just rub their eyes and it will all go away.

The secret to Trump’s victory could be just this simple: He’s more popular with minority voters than any Republican president has been in decades.

The surprising numbers are in two new polls that show Trump outshining Mitt Romney and the Bushes, and building an unstoppable coalition before the 2020 election.

Trump’s growing approval is confirmed by two separate polls conducted by CBS and the group Survey Monkey.

CBS finds 14% of black voters told liberal pollsters something they thought they’d never hear: “I am a Trump supporter.”

New polls reveal Donald Trump has increased support among blacks and Hispanics. The results show he will easily win the next election to the disappointment of the Republican fifth columnists

While not huge in total, it’s the proportions that matter. That number means Trump has already doubled his support among black voters since the 2016 election.

But even that massive success may be selling Trump short. According to Survey Monkey, almost one-in-four black men say they support President Trump.

That’s three-times more than voted for him in 2016… when he already won 25% more black votes than Romney and Paul Ryan did four years earlier.

Donald Trump’s popularity with black voters was big enough to rip the state of Florida away from Hillary Clinton and put it in his win column.

Moving toward 2020, Trump’s momentum is building – and it’s just the beginning.

Another 22% of black voters polled told CBS, “I am against Trump now, but could reconsider him if he does a good job.”

If Donald Trump wins 36% of the black vote, 2020 won’t be a landslide – it will be a bloodbath. The last Republican to come close to that level of popularity with black voters was Dwight Eisenhower in 1956.

Rich liberal politicians have played the race card for 60 years to keep African-Americans voting for Democrats. Trump’s breakout approval ratings show it’s not working anymore. The race card is maxed out – and not just for black voters.

In a twist that will take the media’s breath away, Trump’s approval rating with Hispanic men has only climbed since he took office.

This is the group Trump is supposed to “hate” the most – and they love him more every day.

The numbers are undeniable. Even though it has a silly name, Survey Monkey is one of the most comprehensive polls out there. It based its results on 605,172 interviews.

Their figures are rock-solid, just like Trump’s support.

The Fake News media have thrown everything at Donald Trump to make him look like the American version of Hitler. But the voters are seeing through it, and it’s not hard to figure out why.

Donald Trump is delivering. His tough America First policies help working people, whether they’re white, black, Hispanic, or any other ethnicity.

Black unemployment is lower than ever – a fact Democrats refused to applaud that at the State of the Union.

The Trump economy is so good that people who had to sit on the couch during the Obama years are finally able to get a job. The New York Times reported that number of “prime-age workers — those ages 25 to 54” who were employed “hit a seven-year high in December.”

And workers are seeing more money in their paychecks – and not just from bonuses and the tax cut. Wages are climbing faster than any time since 2009 – basically, faster than the entire Obama presidency.

Every worker benefits when wages rise. Black and Hispanic working men are all grateful for the red-hot economic growth.

Trump’s also winning minority voters’ respect by telling it like it is and keeping his campaign promises. Poll after poll shows that blacks support closing the border, because they – and immigrants who are here legally – have to compete with low-skill, low-wage illegal immigrants.

That’s been driving wages down for decades – and it’s coming to a crashing halt.

Trump’s toughness – and his decency – has won him the support of distinguished black leaders like Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, Alveda King. She told Fox News, “I consider President Trump to be a leader” who sees all races as equal.

Unlike Barack Obama, when Donald Trump looks at people, he doesn’t see races. He doesn’t see voting blocs to be won.

Instead, he sees Americans who deserve all the help and support that the government can give them. Isn’t that what everybody should want from a leader?

Howard’s gun laws created thousands of unregistered guns to control the streets

At a conference in the Whitehouse last week survivors and families of those students and teachers shot at the Parkland, Florida school were pushing Donald Trump to tighten up gun laws.

One student told the President that Australia’s gun laws were a model for the world. This poor fella had been seriously misinformed. A reader kindly prepared a timeline of gun related deaths across Australia AFTER PM Johnnie Howard and Deputy Tim Fischer’s stringent new gun laws came into effect. It speaks for itself and shows how misleading the Australian media can be.

Cairns News does not support individual gun registration because of its inaccuracy, enormous cost for little benefit and inconvenience for all gun owners.

Over the weekend, Delta and United Airlines – two of the three largest US-based airlines – said they would no longer offer discounted fares to NRA members to attend annual meetings. Both airlines asked the NRA to remove any references to their companies from its website.

Other companies joining the boycott included car rental brands Enterprise, National and Alamo, Avis, Budget and Hertz; First National Bank of Omaha; insurance firm Chubb; digital security firm Symantec; moving services Allied and North American Van Lines; hotel chains Wyndham and Best Western; and MetLife, which offered savings on home and car insurance to NRA members.

Over the weekend, David Hogg, one of the most prominent student activists and a survivor of the shooting, issued a warning to the pro-gun lobby via US morning TV: “You might as well stop now, because we will outlive you.”

Meanwhile, the students’ movement is collecting millions of dollars from celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney, enjoy pro bono advertising from people in Hollywood and organisational know-how from groups including the Women’s March.

Corporate ties to the NRA aren’t the only elements undergoing scrutiny after the Valentine’s Day shooting.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said he was investigating allegations that police officers who responded from nearby Coral Springs saw Broward County deputies waiting outside the building during the shooting – rather than rushing inside to apprehend the shooter and treat the wounded.

On Thursday, Broward County deputy Scot Peterson, who worked full-time as an armed officer inside the school, resigned because he waited outside.

Some have pointed to the alleged inaction of the local sheriff’s department as a critique of President Donald Trump’s call to arm more school teachers.

Mr Trump has promoted the idea of putting “gun-adept” teachers and staff in schools with concealed firearms to protect students. He has also called for giving bonuses to educators who volunteer to carry a firearm.

In his latest tweet he said: “Armed Educators (and trusted people who work within a school) love our students and will protect them. Very smart people. Must be firearms adept & have annual training. Should get yearly bonus. Shootings will not happen again – a big & very inexpensive deterrent. Up to States.”
