‘Enough is enough’: Missouri AG Asks For McCloskey Case To Be Dismissed

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt vowed to intervene in the McCloskey case during a Monday night interview with Fox News anchor Shannon Bream, saying he’s pushing for the case to be dismissed altogether.

“The truth of the matter is this is nothing more than a political prosecution brought by St. Louis Prosecutor Kim Gardner,” he said. “The right to self-defense is deeply rooted in our constitution. It’s a fundamental right. It actually predates our Constitution. The founders knew how important it was. It’s a God-given right. It can’t be taken away or given to us by government. It’s unalienable.”

That right is not only provided by the Constitution, but also by the Missouri Constitution and the State’s statutes, Schmitt added. And, with rising crime in the state, “we’ve got a prosecutor now targeting individuals for exercising their fundamental rights under the Second Amendment,” Schmitt explained.

“Enough is enough. The law is very clear. It’s time, as the State’s Chief law enforcement officer to step in. We’re entering the case and we’re seeking to have this case dismissed, not just for the McCloskey’s, but for every Missourian whose rights are threatened by a rogue prosecutor who seeks to punish people for exercising their fundamental right to self defense.”

The McCloskey’s, a Missouri couple, are accused of weapons violations after they pointed guns at protestors who breached their gated property last month. Gardner filed charges against the couple Monday. In her statement regarding the move, Gardner wrote, “It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner at those participating in nonviolent protest, and while we are fortunate this situation did not escalate into deadly force, this type of conduct is unacceptable in St. Louis.”

Mark McCloskey, however, had a few choice words for the St. Louis prosecutor on Monday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “Now I’m just flat out pissed off. This has gotten to be outrageous,” he told Carlson, citing Gardner’s efforts to protect those threatening his family and his property.

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.

Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”

Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”

When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”

“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.

Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
