This is a doozie. Well, at least he’s honest about it.
Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell suggested on Friday that the U.S. government could use nuclear weapons on its own citizens if they fight back against firearm confiscation.
Right-wing internet personality Joe Biggs tweeted at Swalwell in response to a May reportthat Swalwell wants to ban “military-style semiautomatic assault weapons” and prosecute gun owners who did not turn in their newly-banned weapons.
Biggs promised any such legislation would provoke a “war” between gun owners and the government, writing, “You’re outta your f*****g mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov [sic] all the power.”
And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities.— Rep. Eric Swalwell (@RepSwalwell) November 16, 2018
So our government would nuke its own country in order to take guns? Wow— Joe Biggs (@Rambobiggs) November 16, 2018
Don’t be so dramatic. No one is nuking anyone or threatening that. I’m telling you this is not the 18th Century. The argument that you would go to war with your government if an assault weapons ban was in place is ludicrous and inflames the gun debate. Which is what you want. https://t.co/oX0rY7Nbs1— Rep.

Remember the days when we were told that snow would be a thing of the past?
No longer. Now global warming causes harsher, colder, snowier winters.
Global warming can cause anything, even contradictory things.
TRENTON, N.J. – Public officials were on the defensive Friday after the season’s first, surprisingly strong snowstorm stranded thousands of motorists for hours and forced some students to stay overnight in their schools.
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said “lousy” forecasts were partly to blame. He took a pounding on social media from people complaining about his handling of Thursday’s storm, including one of his highest-profile constituents. Former Republican Gov. Chris Christie tweeted at Murphy that it took him nearly six hours to travel roughly 30 miles . Murphy didn’t respond directly to his predecessor.
“Clearly we could have done better and we will do better,” Murphy said.
Can the government be forced to ask questions (and not ask questions) so that it benefits one political party over the other?
The Supreme Court says it will hear arguments over the evidence a federal judge can consider in the lawsuit concerning the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 census.
U.S. District Judge Jesse M. Furman is currently presiding over a trial in New York to determine if Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross acted legally when he decided to include the citizenship question on the decennial census for the first time since 1950.
Looks like the Democrats just couldn’t find any more lost ballot boxes.
They obviously underestimated how many they’d need.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Democrat Andrew Gillum ended his hard-fought campaign for Florida governor on Saturday, just hours before counties must turn in their official results following days of recounting ballots.
Gillum, in a video that he posted on Facebook, congratulated Republican Ron DeSantis but vowed to remain politically active although he gave no clues as his future plans. His term as Tallahassee mayor ends next week.
“This has been the journey of our lives,” said Gillum, who appeared in the video with his wife, R. Jai Gillum. “Although nobody wanted to be governor more than me, this was not just about an election cycle. This was about creating the kind of change in this state that really allows the voices of everyday people to show up again in our government.”

“Throughout this process, my focus was, is, and always will be on ensuring that every student can learn in a safe and nurturing environment,” DeVos said in a statement. “That starts with having clear policies and fair processes that every student can rely on.
“Every survivor of sexual violence must be taken seriously, and every student accused of sexual misconduct must know that guilt is not predetermined,” she said. “We can, and must, condemn sexual violence and punish those who perpetrate it, while ensuring a fair grievance process. Those are not mutually exclusive ideas. They are the very essence of how Americans understand justice to function.”
