Trump, Guns, and The Mentally Ill

First thing, I’d like to say “Welcome Back,” to The View.

I was definitely watching this morning when the latest church shooting, in Texas, was brought up for a brief discussion.

I’m going to be perfectly honest here, and admit that if I were a Meghan McCain or a Whoopi Goldberg, and just about everyone knew my face, I might also carry a gun.   In fact, that is one of the reasons I chose to be a writer rather than use my voice to make money.

In fact, when I moved to New Orleans, because of the stalkers, and had to stay for a time with my older brother (Thomas E. Ankum, Jr.) and his wife (Jeanette), my brother – knowing my stalking situation – actually tried to teach me how to use a gun.  But I wasn’t very good at it, however.  And that ended that.

So, I’m not in favor of taking away everyone’s guns.  But I do agree with Judge Judy that there is absolutely no reason for anyone to have those semi-automatic and automatic weapons.

But what hardly anyone knows is that President Trump actually made it possible for that mentally ill man in Texas to purchase that gun.  Don’t scoff and don’t stop reading.

President Trump did that back in 2017 in the first weeks of his presidency; reversing a law restricting the mentally ill from purchasing guns put in place by the previous administration (You know, Obama).

I’m NOT making that up.  I found information when I decided to may my new novel, Mr. President, reflect more of Trumps atrocities.   Click the link below.

Timeline of the Donald Trump presidency

February 28, 2017 (right before March on the list, Trump did this

President Trump signs a bill removing restrictions on the purchase of guns by persons with mental illnesses.[216]

Also note in February, on February 23, 2017 this happened:

The Department of the Treasury sanctions Al-Nusra Front leaders.[

Who are the Al-Nusra Front leaders?  You and I know them as al-Al-Nusra Front or Jabhat al-Nusra (Arabicجبهة النصرة‎ lit. Front of the Supporters), known as Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (Arabicجبهة فتح الشام‎) after July 2016, and also described as al-Qaeda in Syria or al-Qaeda in the Levant,[41] was a Salafist jihadist organization fighting against Syrian government forces in the Syrian Civil War. Its aim was to establish an Islamic state in the country.[42]

Formed in 2012, in November of that year The Washington Post described al-Nusra as “the most aggressive and successful” of the rebel forces.[43] In December 2012, the United States Department of State designated it a foreign terrorist organization,[44] and in November 2013, it became the official Syrian branch of al-Qaeda.[45]

We squash them down.  We build them up.  We squash them down.  We build them up.

PS.  No.  I still do NOT attend Church.  I thought that perhaps if I kept the stalkers and all of their hateful screaming out of Church, this horrible trend might stop.   But, it seems it might be too late.  It’s taken on a life of its own.

The Firing of Eddie Johnson

Eddie Johnson.   What can I say?  I had defended him when I’d heard the news report about him being found slumped over the steering wheel of his car.

I, like a lot of you, felt that given his health problems and the amount of stress he was under, that it was perfectly plausible for him to fall asleep while driving home.  And that the City should have afforded him a driver.

And yesterday, when I heard that the Mayor had fired him, I was once again, ready to jump to his defense.

And then, I heard her Mayor Lori Lightfoot, say that she’d fired Eddie Johnson for lying to her.

That I couldn’t defend.  Because as a woman – and a victim of predatory stalking – who was lied to, by the Police, for over 40 years and still to this day, I can’t defend this backwards ass notion that the Illinois Police have that’s it’s OK to lie to women.

No, it’s NOT OK to lie to women.   And I won’t defend that.  Lying puts women’s lives at risk.  Every day, for well over thirty years, I had to go out there with a ranting raving lunatic on my heels.  And I suffered with that to the point that I still sleep with the lights on.   This past summer, even though my apartment is air conditioned, I still had a large fan going because the noise from the fan helped drown out the stalkers’ screaming.    If I’d had my way, I would have fired at least three Maywood, Illinois Police Chiefs and one three detectives, for sure.

All I can say is welcome to retirement, Eddie Johnson.

I Thought I’d Hit A Rock

Two weeks ago, I backed out of my driveway that, at the end of which, is lined with large rocks or as I call them, small boulders and I heard a loud bang!  I thought I’d hit one of those small boulders.  But instead, that loud bang turned out to be yet another attempt on my life. Continue reading
