Supreme Court Justice Stevens: “Change 2nd Amendment – Only Military Should Have Right To Arms”.

BurnSecnd-Amendment

Former Supreme Court Justice advocates changing Six Amendments in the Bill of Rights – including the Second Amendment in new book.

As with all MarxoFascists (i.e.: liberals, progressives, Democrats et al.) there is consensus among their arguments that the Constitution is flawed because it restricts government’s power over the people and the states, and focuses too much on individual rather than ‘collective’ rights.  In other words, it’s not Communist enough for them.

While we would normally laugh off the insanity coming from screwball MarxoFascists like you would find on MSNBC – the reality is that such ideologues hold the highest positions of power in our nation.  As such – the advancement of their total transformation agenda of a Republic into a Communist State is the only focus and goal.

One such ideologue is former so-called Republican and Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who revealed his platform to commit treason in a new ‘manifesto’ he is hawking “Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution“.

One such Amendment he advocates changing is the Second Amendment.  His proposed treason is to change the text of the Second Amendment so that it reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms when serving in the militia shall not be infringed.”

Essentially what Stevens is advocating is that ONLY those serving in the military should have a right to arms.  Notwithstanding the history of every single genocidal regime ever come to power in mankind’s history, limits weapons to be in the hands of the military, loyal to it’s leader.  That is a history Stevens and his MarxoFascist traitors never seem to note.

The Constitution explicitly states “the right of the people”, to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.  It says NOTHING about WHEN they are ‘allowed’ to keep and bear arms as Stevens’ proposal demands.

But even in regards to the MarxoFascist argument that only the militia should have arms, let us look at who the Founding Fathers considered the militia.  George Mason, called the ‘Father’ of the Constitution, wrote this:

“I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except
for a few public officials.” — George Mason, in Debates in Virginia
Convention on Ratification of the Constitution

But in the world of the MarxoFascists and the tyrants they seek to empower – ‘the militia’ is the National Guard or the military – under the direct authority of the President to command.

A people stripped of arms are much easier to subjugate and eradicate by a tyrannical regime such as the one in power right now.  Our arms are the only thing that is preventing what is going on in Venezuela fro happening here.

FORMER JUSTICE STEVENS: CHANGE 2ND AMENDMENT TO IMPROVE CONSTITUTION

Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens has released a new book focused, in part, on “improving” the Constitution through amending the Second Amendment–by making the rights protected therein applicable only to a militia instead of the citizenry at large.

Stevens’ book is titled Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution.

As written, the text of the Second Amendment is: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”

According to Bloomberg Businessweek, Stevens believes recent court decisions–notablyDistrict of Columbia v Heller (2008) and McDonald v Chicago (2010)–placed too much emphasis on individual rights, rather than on what he believes was the Founding Fathers’ primary goal: namely, to answer “the threat that a national standing army posed to the sovereignty of the states.”

His solution is to amend the text of the Second Amendment so that it reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms when serving in the militia shall not be infringed.”

In other words, the protection of the right becomes collective and is only protected for those serving in the militia.

Among the many problems with Stevens’ idea is the often overlooked fact that the Second Amendment did not create a right when it was ratified in 1791. Rather, the Founding Fathers created the Second Amendment to protect a portion of the “certain unalienable Rights” with which man was “endowed by [his] Creator.”

The rights protected by the Second Amendment are individual rights, as are the rights that are protected, but not created, by the First, Third, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments, among others.

Patriot Who Survived Castro’s Cuba Slams Gun Control Legislators

MarxistGunControl

Consider this as passionate a warning to the American people as ever has been made by polished politicians.  We are being sold into subjugation, called out by a man who sees history repeating itself right here.

Last April, a Cuban immigrant bravely stood up and lectured his government and his fellow citizens about the direction the Stalinists in government were taking the country.  It received no media attention and was almost buried, a deliberate attempt by the media to make his words disappear.  Thankfully Conservative outlets saved the exchange and kept the passionate truth alive which I have just seen for the first time.

Manuel Martinez, who narrowly escaped Cuba in 1962 after being imprisoned for opposing Fidel Castro, passionately defends the Second Amendment in front of Oregon’s Senate Judiciary Committee.

Martinez-SocialistGunBan

Martinez passionately compared the state lawmakers’ attempts to pass gun control to what he witnessed and experienced in Castro’s Communist revolution in Cuba, and he chastised the judiciary committee while warning his fellow citizens what is happening to them under the guise of safety and security.

“You say you want to protect the people. You’re not going to protect nobody… A very powerful man tried to sell me this 50 years ago. I didn’t buy it… This is Marxism, plain and clear. Come on, tell me I’m wrong, I’ve been there when you were learning how to walk… A very powerful man put me in chains… You sell THIS to the people who do not have self respect, self-determination. And they are weak. And they love to be subjugated. And be dependent on the government. You don’t sell that to me sir. This is TREASON. This is an ASSAULT on the dream of the founding fathers. They didn’t die for THIS. I come here, for years, talking about what happened, while you people, sink to this.”

“malicious individuals, masquerading as Democrats,.. established … a dictatorial regime … in my nation called Communism, Socialism, Stalinism, Marxism, and whatever other named -ism you want to put on it.  The reason why it was done was to take away the guns from the People.”

Here is the transcript of his entire exchange, but you cannot capture the passion and the anger or the fear in the printed words as the video reveals.  If only Americans born here were as passionate for the rights that are being stripped from them.

My name is Manuel Martinez.  Born in Cuba.  American Citizen for more than 40 years.  I oppose any manipulation, any regulation or disruption of the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States.

In 1957 a Revolution … individuals … malicious individuals, masquerading as Democrats, revolutionaries, established a regime … a dictatorial regime … in my nation.  Called Communism, Socialism, Stalinism, Marxism, and whatever other named -ism you want to put on it.  The reason why it was done was to take away the guns from the People.   The right of the People to wear guns.  That is a God-given Right.  It’s not given by anybody.  It’s not given by any group.   It’s the same thing as freedom, which is a God-given Right.  And no one, absolutely no one, has the authority to take it away.  To cease to defend the Second Amendment, and my God-given Right of freedom, will cease only with my death.

I’ve been through it.  I’ve been there.  You people don’t know what freedom is because you never lost it.  You haven’t been tortured.  You haven’t been [sic] assassinations, you haven’t been mothers begging for the life of their son not to be killed because the only reason is they wanted to be free.  And they killed the mothers and they killed the son.

So my way to protest, the way to oppose, because if we keep tangling with the Second Amendment, we are open the same way that Cuba was open for Communism.  China, Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Venezuela, on and on.  A dictatorial regime that will destroy this country, in the same way that it destroyed those ones that I mentioned to you.

Gun Control does not protect anybody.  It doesn’t protect the citizens, it doesn’t protect the People.  The only reason for gun control is for the Government to be protected from the Citizens.  In that way the Government can manipulate the People and subjugate them.  That’s what’s happened in Cuba for 52 years … 54.  

I came here for freedom.  At the time I came here it was different.  This country opened their arms for me … I couldn’t get it in Cuba.  And they opened their arms for me, I probably wouldn’t get it here today.  I hope that I get clear with you, and you understand my point of view.  I think that concludes my testimony.  

Freedom!  Freedom!

We Must Strip You Of Rights, Imprison & Kill You In The Name Of Security And Public Safety

GunRegistrationGenocide

Demonization, capitulation, registration, criminalization will lead to Genocide And Brutal Civil War right here in what was once America.

There are few people that I have read that can virtually predict the future by simply reminding us of the lessons of history and Matt Bracken is one of those individuals. The day after a Federal judge upholds the unConstitutional and draconian gun ban and registration law in Conneticut, it’s fitting that I read an essay that puts the precipice of where this nations stands in clarity.

Before I excerpt some parts of the essay that I consider paramount to consider in terms of what portent lies in your near future – as an entrée to what Bracken himself adroitly points out in his essay about how tyranny and genocide is always imposed under the guise of ‘public safety’,  here is what the Federal Judge wrote yesterday in his decision to abolish the Second Amendment for citizens in CT:

“The court concludes that the legislation is constitutional,” senior U.S. District Judge Alfred V. Covello wrote in a decision published late Thursday. “While the act burdens the plaintiffs’ Second Amendment rights, it is substantially related to the important governmental interest of public safety and crime control.”

Yes.  History teaches that genocides like the Jewish Holocaust, the genocide of Kulaks in Russia and the Holdomor in the Ukraine are always done under the guise of ‘public safety’.  Right after the victims are disarmed in the same name.  This is always the raison d’être for imposing tyranny and genocide by the hand of the state.

Bracken notes:

I can hear it now—this is the United States of America! Abuses like the ones you hypothesize simply cannot happen here. ‘Gun registration does not always lead to confiscation, much less to extermination’. ‘We are not Germany or Russia or any of those other countries you mentioned’. ‘This is the 21st Century. America is different, and it can’t happen here’. ‘You must lay your irrational fears aside and place your trust in your government’. ‘It cannot, it will not, ever turn in the dark and tyrannical direction that you imagine’.

Oh, really? Google “wrong-address SWAT raids” and read any of the dozens of articles you will find. We should trust the government not to abuse us even further, once we are disarmed and helpless to resist them?

Here’s one such ‘wrong address’ raid from last week.  it takes the foreign press to report that cops shoot and kill a 72 year old man in his own house after they get the wrong address investigating a ‘robbery’.  At some point such raids are going to be resisted by those who remember history – and when coupled with new gun control dictates, Bracken notes from history where that will go:

…after millions of Americans refuse to comply with new firearms registration and confiscation laws. Action will beget reaction. SWAT raids will spur armed resistance, which will spur “death squad” reprisals by “off-duty” agents, exactly in the way I wrote in “Enemies Foreign and Domestic.” It is a natural, almost organic progression, once started—and it has started. Secret detention centers will proliferate like mushrooms in the night. The media will not report on them, even if screams are heard around the clock by neighbors. Particularly brave reporters who break the media silence to report on police abuses will disappear, or be found headless, as they are in Mexico today.

For that is what a modern “dirty civil war” looks like, in country after country, from continent to continent. If present trends continue, America is going to experience a very old witch’s brew on her home soil for the first time since the Civil War.

Before it gets there, understand the conditions that have already been groomed by the current political regime to consider Conservatives to be domestic enemies.  Understand how far down the path towards genocide this nation is already on.  I’m excerpting this section from Bracken’s essay on how demonization leads to actions such as registration, criminalization, incarceration and ultimately, extermination.  Remember, demonization of a segment of people by a government or ruling class ALWAYS results in those same rulers exterminating the group they have demonized.  Demonization/scapegoating makes their removal from society acceptable to the masses, and even applauded by acolytes.  We are already well into this phase.

The Scapegoat Express

Scapegoating an unpopular group is standard operating procedure for budding socialist dictators wrecking once-free economies. For the Soviets, it was the Kulaks; for the Chinese it was the so-called “landlords.” I could list more recent cases to include Cambodia, Uganda, Guatemala, Rwanda and others. Once disarmed and helpless to resist, the hated national scapegoats are slaughtered by the millions.

Probably few Turks, Germans or Russians gave a thought to the ultimate aim of their new gun registration laws, passed quite plausibly in the name of public safety. But national gun registration is a slow-acting poison, sweet and easy to swallow, but potentially becoming deadly only years later, when a tyrant takes the reins of power and inevitably sends for the list. He begins with his most dangerous enemies and works his way through the list, marching the helpless scapegoats into deserts or gas chambers or gulags after disarming them.

In America today, we are seeing the beginning of an insidious scapegoating process, with older conservative white Christian males designated as the nationalLucifer du jour, fair game for any vicious attack. Famous black movie stars joke about murdering white folks and white liberal media stars laugh along with them, conveying elite acceptance of the prevailing “evil whitey” meme.

Filled from birth on a steady diet of the pervasiveness of white racism in America, rage-filled urban youths across the nation play “the knockout game” with often fatal results for their randomly selected white or Asian victims. Meanwhile, the elite liberal media fail to notice the national scope of the almost weekly occurrences. Google “the knockout game” and start reading the dozens of local stories that the media refuse to connect or identify as part of a dangerous national trend.

And it doesn’t stop with knocking out random passers-by with sucker punches and then kicking them in head until they are dead, disfigured for life, or in comas. Have you ever heard of “The Knoxville Horror”? How about “The Wichita Horror”? Google them, read the local news articles about them, and ask yourself how much national media attention those cases and others like them would garner had the races been reversed.

When alternately trumpeting or ignoring crime stories based entirely on the races of the perpetrators and the victims isn’t enough to convey the media’s full slant, they will invent stories or lie freely, as we saw in the Trayvon Martin case, with video footage edited and spliced to deliberately portray “white-Hispanic” George Zimmerman as a racist killer. Selectively covering or ignoring crimes depending on the races of the victims and perpetrators is a vital part of the process of scapegoating. The unspoken message is clearly conveyed: crimes against disfavored groups just don’t matter. The violence prone absorb the lesson, and the result is a wave of racial attacks such as those described under the rubric of “the knockout game.”

Or consider the types of cartoons that are considered acceptable today in mainstream publications, portraying prototypical older white Christian men—presumably filthy-rich conservative Republicans—as hate-spewing maniacal villains, complete with fangs, Confederate flags, prominent Christian crosses and gigantic, threatening guns. Compare these viciously racist cartoons to the vilest anti-Semitic cartoons created by Nazi propagandists before and during World War II. I am not speaking of cartoons drawn by nobodies and posted on obscure fringe websites, I am talking about cartoons printed in mainstream newspapers, cartoons that would be condemned if the targeted group was any other than the scapegoat.

Cartoons are not serious, you say? Then how about a paper in an approved and sanctioned semi-official U.S. military publication, written by a War College professor in good standing. Serious enough for you? Google the “Small Wars Journal” piece entitled “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A Vision of the Future,” by Colonel Kevin Benson, USA (ret), 2012. The “full spectrum operations” envisaged for the Army in the homeland are not made against hypothetical hostile drug cartels in the Southwest, or urban gangs, or the traditionally ambiguous and vague “Pineland Liberation Group,” or “Orangeland People’s Front,” hypothetical stand-ins named to offend no one, not even by accident.

This long-standing neutral naming protocol is tossed aside in “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland,” where the new domestic enemy that the U.S. Army must crush is a neo-KKK, a white racist “Tea Party terrorist” organization, headquartered in, of all places, Darlington, South Carolina. Yes, the NASCAR Darlington. Anybody who has been in or near an actual Tea Party event or rally knows the crowd is made up mainly of an older white population, a quiet group that leaves no mess behind, not even a stray poster, and causes no fuss.

Yet “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland” postulates that these white grandpas and grannies will be the very group that the U.S. Army will be called upon to crush in its first major battles on American soil since 1865. The message this paper sends throughout the upper ranks of the War-College-trained military, actually naming an ethnic group—Southern whites—as the national enemy to “hypothetically” be crushed by the Army in the year 2016, is simply mind-boggling.

The path forward that is indicated by the media’s growing acceptance of these vile and outrageous anti-white celebrity rants, cartoons, and articles is the same path that in previous eras led to the guillotine, the gulag, and the gas chamber for the scapegoated populations. But the final solution—genocide of the scapegoats—is only possible after the mob is sufficiently inflamed with hatred toward them by the mass media, in collaboration with an evil government. And time after time, it works.

We are seeing the opening stages of the scapegoating of white conservatives today, as the last election seems to demonstrate to the left’s satisfaction that a crucial political and demographic tipping point has been passed, and the ultimate power equations of raw tribal loyalty have changed in a fundamental way—and now it’s payback time.

We have seen this play out before in other countries and times, and it is deadly serious. Once the scapegoating gets far enough under way, it can pick up a life and a momentum of its own. For example, if the economy ever truly crashes, and the EBT system that feeds fifty million Americans goes down hard, leading to hunger, looting, and riots, (or we suffer other unforeseen problems of similar crisis proportions), the scapegoats will always be dragged to the forefront as the pre-designated patsy, to deflect blame from the government.

“It’s the traitorous Armenians! It’s the greedy Kulaks! It’s the filthy Jews! It’s the oppressive Rwandan Hutus! It’s the white-racist rednecks! Let’s go get them, and make them pay!”

The end result of disarming a scapegoat population is as easy to follow as 1-2-3:

1. Registration. 2. Confiscation. 3. Extermination.

And in this cultural and social climate, with class envy and racial hatred being stoked by the government and its willing partners in the liberal media against white conservatives, our socialist-leaning administration now wants us to surrender our most useful and effective self-defense tools, in the name of “public safety”!

Bracken’s entire lengthy but necessary essay is written to security agents and law enforcement because he considers appealing to government, the courts and politicians a waste of time.  Bracken notes that it is the ‘security’ apparatus that will be told to carry out what he fears is coming.

The essay is a long read.  It is an historical and factual read.  It is a prophetic read.  It is a sobering read.  It is a necessary read.

But it is where we have arrived.  The place where the State can decide to can do what it likes to you in the name of security, public safety, income inequality, gender inequality, and the host of excuses all Leftist despots beguile their citizens to embrace and accept before the mass graves are filled.

The entire read is here:

Dear Mr. Security Agent

Obama Asserts His Dictatorship In State Of The Coup Speech

FuhrerStateCoup

His Heinous states he will act to implement a ‘year of action’ on an aggressive Marxist and Totalitarian Agenda

Amerika’s first acting Dictator Barack Hussein NerObama layed out his intentions at last night’s State of the Union (Coup) speech. It went pretty much as I assumed it would.

Key points in his Castro-esque bloviation:

• Obama will act on his own to impose his agenda, with or without Congress.  “So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do”.  Do what he says or he will simply do it anyway.

Income inequality; America is a bad nation with too many rich people who need to have their wealth redistributed

• Implementing Fascism; government ‘partnerships’ with business, industry, education and technology.

• More unemployment benefits to keep paying those folks who gave up trying to find a job over the last 5 years.

• Energy Transformation; no more coal, oil or gas.  Transition to natural gas, solar and wind power.  Ride a bicycle like they do in Communist China instead of driving a car.

• Reduce carbon ‘pollution’ with more urgency.  Climate Change is a fact, the debate is over because Obama said so.

• Immigration transformation.  Make all illegals citizens so they can vote for Democrats and remain welfare slaves.

• Mandatory Pre-school.  Kids must start government indoctrination by age 4.

• Affirmative Action for Women – imposing the failed Equal Rights Amendment because there’s a mythical war on women led by rich evil White men.

• Raise Minimum Wage: because hey – who cares if you pay $12 for a hamburger at McDonalds, the single mom there needs more bucks welfare doesn’t cover.

 • Create new federal Retirement program: MyRA.  Setting the stage for federal confiscation of all retirement funds, 401ks and IRAs with IOUs.  because Social Security is broke and the government cannot stand all that retirement money just sitting there without Obama and his hordes having their paws in it.

• Citizenship requires agreement with Obama policies.

• Gun Control – more bans, more regulations by Imperial Decree

• Changes to voting procedures and methods because Barack just don’t trust ‘We The People’ to vote fair or honest.

• Pulling out of Afghanistan in 2015 like we did in Iraq – and let Al Qaeda and the Taliban resurge.

• Diplomacy As Foreign Policy in the face of nuke threats from Iran and the world serve us best, because being a paper tiger is safer than confronting the world’s maniacal bullies with delusions of global conquest in their heads.

What amazes me is he brazenly stated 8 separate times he would simply ‘act’ without Congress to implement these agenda items.  “I will act on my own”;  “whenever I can take steps without legislation…that’s what I’m going to do”; I’ll cut red tape”; I’ll use my authority”; I’ll set new standards”; “I will issue executive orders”; “I will direct the Treasury”; “I intend to keep trying, with or without Congress”.

Then there’s the absolutely inept and powerless cowardice of members of Congress who stood and applauded a man who just told them he will now act as dictator.

The pitiful and ridiculous Republican Ruling Class response by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers was a case-in-point of the spineless milquetoast buffoonery Boehner and McConnell’s party has become.  Did anyone else think she was auditioning for a “Mrs. Rodger’s Neighborhood” show?

We are witnessing the fundamental transformation of a Republic into a MarxoFascist third world hellhole and our so-called leadership is either castrated and cowed, or complicit and compliant.

In a word – this speech was nothing more than an in-our-face assertion of a dictatorship, and a redefinition of terms about what a ‘citizen’ means in Obama’s Amerika.

It’s Not Obama, It’s Do-Nothing Christians Who Refuse To Stand Who Are Consigning Us To Tyranny

betrayal

Christians have bought a horrible lie, and as a result of the misapplication of Matthew 7:1-2, we have lost the culture and losing our liberty.

The tyranny we now suffer is a direct result of Christian Americans turning away from their responsibilities as American Citizens, weakening their own franchise and the structure of the American “composite republic” that would not have existed without a vibrant – in-your-face Christianity nor maintained without a sufficient Christian moral base.  Without an active Christian moral ethic expected in a civil society, wickedness will abound and powerful people will foist their own interests over the interests of their neighbors.

What church leaders in America are preaching, is that we have no need to confront those with an agenda who come against the faith.  They say that instead we need to show them love and compassion.  Evil sees that as surrender and a validation of their wickedness.  Those who think they can ignore, compromise or be ‘equal’ with sin – will be conquered by it. Sin is not content to co-exist alongside righteousness.  It will attempt to subjugate and eradicate the righteous so as to avoid any sense of shame for wrongdoing.

Contrary to what some preachers teach about God fighting all our battles for us supernaturally – scripture makes it clear that a People of God were required to actually stand and resist those who came against them:

- Exodus 17:8-13

“Then Amalek came and fought against Israel at Rephidim. So Moses said to Joshua, “Choose men for us and go out, fight against Amalek. Tomorrow I will station myself on the top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand.” Joshua did as Moses told him, and fought against Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. So it came about when Moses held his hand up, that Israel prevailed, and when he let his hand down, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands were heavy. Then they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it; and Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other. Thus his hands were steady until the sun set. So Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.”

That sounds like combat to me.  I don’t read that God did all the fighting for them.  He may have given them the victory – but it required actual physical effort to combat those who came against them.   Something the church and Christians are now refusing to do in this culture.

Christian Apologetics is being lost – it is being surrendered to Muslim apologetics.

Pastor Chuck Baldwin makes an excellent argument of noting where the real threat to our Rights and liberties is coming from; not from those who we know are enemies of Constitutional Republicanism – but rather those who claim to be on our side, those who claim to be our leaders – who betray us all .

OUR FRIENDS ARE KILLING US

By Chuck Baldwin
November 14, 2013

 There is a prophetic verse of Scripture that records the conquering Messiah as being asked about the wounds that are in his hands. He responds, “Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.” (Zechariah 13:6 KJV) Indeed. It wasn’t the Romans that were fixated with killing Christ; it was the Lord’s own brethren. “He came unto his own, and his own received him not.” (John 1:11 KJV) In like manner, our nation is quickly losing its liberties and Natural rights, not because of our enemies, but because of our so-called friends and brothers.

Edmund Burke summarized it beautifully: “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” And, for the most part, that is what good men are doing today: nothing!

 As regular readers of this column know, I am passionate in my defense of the Natural right of self-defense. I firmly believe that the only thing standing between us and tyranny is the right of the people to keep and bear arms. The freedom of speech, the right to assemble and redress government, the right to be secure in our own homes, the right to a trial by jury, the freedom of worship, etc., all depend on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. When the people of America surrender this right, all of the other rights will quickly disappear.

 Furthermore, Daniel Webster was absolutely right when he said, “Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster, and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.” Amen!

 Not only does the Second Amendment protect the liberties of the people of the United States, the Second Amendment protects the free peoples of the world. Without the armed citizenry of the people of America, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, France, and the rest of the free world would plummet into abject tyranny and oppression. Look at how socialistic and enslaved people in these countries already are. Can one imagine how quickly they would plunge into the Dark Ages without the power and influence of the last bulwark of liberty: a free and armed United States of America?

 Daniel Webster uttered another profound truth: “There is no nation on earth powerful enough to accomplish our overthrow. Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter: from the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence. I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men and become the instruments of their own undoing.”

 Ladies and gentlemen, that is exactly what many of our so-called friends and brothers have become: “instruments of their own undoing.” It is not the liberals, socialists, amoralists, elitists, globalists, etc., who are killing us; it is the pastors, Christians, conservatives, Republicans, etc., who sit back and do nothing that are killing us.

Let me say it plainly: neocon Republicans do far more damage to the cause of liberty than do liberal Democrats. Do-nothing pastors and Christians do far more damage to the cause of liberty than do atheists and agnostics. Compromising conservatives do far more damage to the cause of liberty than do liberals.

Come on, folks! Think about it: who endangered the cause of independence more: King George III or Benedict Arnold? A known enemy is far less dangerous than an enemy who pretends to be your friend.

 All over America, our “friends” are selling out the cause of liberty. Every pastor who refuses to publicly repudiate the forces that are attacking our freedom is selling out the cause of liberty. Every Republican who refuses to stand firm against the forces that are attacking our freedom is selling out the cause of liberty. Every conservative who refuses to resist the forces that are attacking our freedom is selling out the cause of liberty.

 There is nothing new about big-government zealots. They have been with us ever since the Tower of Babel. They were with us in 1775 and 1776. Freedom does not depend upon the absence of would-be tyrants; it depends upon the presence of those who are willing to resist would-be tyrants. And that is what seems to be vanishing.

 Folks, this is an absolute truism: not all Christians are friends of liberty; not all pastors are friends of liberty; not all conservatives are friends of liberty; not all Republicans are friends of liberty; not all military personnel are friends of liberty; not all policemen are friends of liberty; not all attorneys are friends of liberty; not all physicians are friends of liberty; not all teachers and professors are friends of liberty; and not all gun owners are friends of liberty. Anyone who refuses to resist the forces of evil that attack our Constitution, Declaration, and Bill of Rights is no friend of liberty.

 For example, I have been a long-time subscriber to a couple of gun magazines: Guns and Ammo and Handguns. Both of these magazines are published by the same parent company. When President Obama and Senator Feinstein attempted to ban semi-automatic rifles and full-size rifle and pistol magazines earlier this year, I kept waiting for the editors and writers of these two magazines to sound the clarion call of resistance. I waited and waited and waited. Nothing. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Throughout the entire debate, there was not one peep of protest to these egregious gun control laws proposed by Obama and Feinstein in these magazines. This in spite of the fact that practically every page of both magazines is filled with the very arms that would have been banned to the general public had Obama and Feinstein gotten their way. Had the gun-grabbing tyrants been victorious, I suppose Guns and Ammo magazine would simply have re-invented itself in order to fit into the new Amerika in much the same way that so many companies did in Nazi Germany. I guess they would simply have changed the name of the magazine to Military and Police Guns and Ammo.

I wrote the publisher of the two magazines mentioned above and explained why, after so many years as a faithful subscriber, I was not renewing my subscription. Of course, I received no reply. And now I know why.

 Writing for Breitbart.com, AWR Hawkins filed this report: “In the December issue of Guns & Ammo magazine, editor Dick Metcalf uses his ‘Backstop’ column to argue that all constitutional rights need regulation, including the 2nd Amendment.

 “TheTruthAboutGuns.com has scanned and posted a copy of the column online. In it, Metcalf explains why he chose to address the regulation of constitutional rights: ‘I bring this up because way too many gun owners still believe that any regulation of the right to keep and bear arms is an infringement. The fact is that all Constitutional rights are regulated, always have been, and need to be.’

 “Metcalf says he receives ‘bags of mail every year’ from people complaining of the myriad regulations related to concealed carry permits. He says these readers ‘typically argue’ that the 2nd Amendment ‘is all the authority they need’ to keep and bear arms, to carry a gun with them where they go.

 “In response, Metcalf writes: ‘I [wonder] whether those same people believe that just anybody should be able to buy a vehicle and take it out on public roadways without any kind of driver’s training, test, or license.’

 “Metcalf misses the point. The 2nd Amendment protects a natural right; that’s why it is not to be infringed. Owning and operating a vehicle is not a natural right, so comparing it to gun ownership is like comparing the ability to own and operate an airplane with the rights to freedom of speech and religion.

 “This is an important point because our Founders’ central reason for creating the Bill of Rights was to hedge in a body of natural rights as off-limits to government regulation and interference.

 “The 2nd Amendment says, ‘A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’ Metcalf has seized on the words ‘well regulated,’ taking them out of context to the detriment of ‘shall not be infringed.’”

 Guns & Ammo Editor: All Constitutional Rights Need Regulation, Even 2nd Amendment

Hooray for Mr. Hawkins! He has a grasp of Natural Law. That is something that Dick Metcalf obviously doesn’t possess. The sad thing is Mr. Metcalf occupies a very trusted and influential position that should be utilized to protect the Second Amendment. Instead, he is using his position to help destroy the Second Amendment. Like I said, not all gun owners are the friends of liberty.

 But as long as Guns and Ammo magazine is rolling in the dough, don’t expect any change. I, for one, am not going to help pay a gun magazine editor’s salary that is using the money I send him to use the pages of the magazine to facilitate the destruction of the liberties that keep my children and grandchildren free. That means I have kissed my subscription to Guns and Ammo and Handguns magazines goodbye.

By the same token, how long are Christians today who say they believe in the Second Amendment (and the rest of the Bill of Rights) going to keep sending their tithes and offerings to these churches where the pastors refuse to publicly resist these draconian gun control bills such as were recently introduced by Obama and Feinstein? How long are they going to keep filling the pews of these do-nothing churches? As long as these say-nothing pastors see their pews and offering plates full, don’t expect anything to change.

I will say it plainly: if you attend a church and didn’t hear your pastor oppose the Obama/Feinstein gun control bills from the pulpit earlier this year, YOU NEED TO GET OUT OF THAT CHURCH. The only thing holding this republic together is the people’s right to keep and bear arms–especially semi-automatic rifles with large-capacity magazines. By refusing to resist evil, your pastor has become an enemy of liberty.

Wittingly or not, he is helping to put the chains of slavery around the necks of your children and grandchildren. Why would you stay and support such a pastor and church?

As Christ was betrayed and rejected by His “friends,” so, too, the liberties and freedoms of our country are being betrayed and rejected by its “friends.”

Obama The Dictator – “My Military”

O&Il-Duce

Obama has repeatedly said he will act without Congress.  Today he said U.S. Armed forces were “My military”.  America  no longer has a President, America is ruled by a Dictator.

Why pretend what the reality is, is not reality?  Obama is a dictator, in our faces and those of the world.

Obama said he would do it; to Act without Congress if they did not do as he demands, even if the Constitution prohibits him from doing so.  Obama’s unilateral actions against the Second Amendment by decree, to his unilateral actions of running guns into Mexican drug cartels, arming Al Qaeda rebels in Benghazi, attacking Libya and now setting bomb sights on Syria – Obama rules like the dictator he emphatically denied he was some months ago.

I recall how berserk the MarxoFascists and Lefties all went over Bush going to war in Afghanistan and then Iraq.  What is interesting is that BOTH TIMES, in 2001 and again in 2003 – W. Bush went to Congress and got a Congressional authorization for the use of force, which they funded.  Before the Iraq war, Bush sent Colin Powell to play footsie with the UN for almost a full year over Sadaam Hussein’s violations of the 1991 Cease Fire.

Today, after 2011’s strike in Libya to oust Libyan dictator Moammar Ghadaffi, to his impending attack in Syria, Obama has not even given Congress a phone call, despite his lie that he has “consulted Congress”.  No, he hasn’t.  His regime has been repeating the mantra that Obama will act unilaterally if he has to.

Same as he said he will on banning guns.

Interesting that our first Dictator-In-Chief just today stated in front of the cameras the truth that most Americans are going to pretend didn’t happen; Obama said the military was “My military”.

Only Dictators and kings make such claims, and Obama today – has.

In addition, while all of us were distracted with war talk on Syria, Obama has issued Executive Orders and policy directives from Climate Change, State voting rights to GRANTING AMNESTY  TO ILLEGALS without congress.

Obama Grants Amnesty to Illegal Immigrants Without Congress

Congress hasn’t passed immigration legislation, but that hasn’t stopped President Obama from issuing directives that grant amnesty to illegal immigrants.

Last week, the Obama Administration issued the latest in a line of policy directives granting amnesty by default. This latest directive instructs Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials not to enforce immigration laws in cases where an illegal alien is the primary provider for any minor child—regardless of the child’s immigration status—or the parent or guardian of a child who is a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident.

Meanwhile, Boehner and McConnell and the Ruling Class Republicans in Congress are silent and/or supportive of this dictatorial monarchy that acts every day outside of it’s Constitutional bounds.

The fact is America, we have a dictator or self-imposed king now ruling the country.  He and his Marxofascist Religionists, will decide which laws to enforce and obey, and which laws to ignore and void.  The horde, goose-stepping to the drums Obama pounds for them or totally clueless – all wrapped up in the Michael Douglas-Catherine Zeta-Jones’ split.

How long America will you endure such a thing?

Or like the Ruling Class Republicans, have you surrendered already to what the media has insisted is inevitable?

History teaches that such a people so accommodating of tyrants, end up in mass graves by the very leaders they capitulated to.

Obama’s Scandals: Proof His Stalinist Regime Is Waging War On The American People

Obama'sWar

The DOJ, IRS and the FBI are not the only Federal agencies being used to spy on, attack, intimidate and destroy Obama’s opposition.  The EPA, DHS and the ATF are on deck preparing to take tyranny to a higher level.

Benghazi, IRS, DOJ, AP, Fast & Furious, Fox, self-investigation, voter suppression, a dump truck full lies, obfuscation and treason from the Obama regime in just the last few weeks alone.  Simply evidence of what many of us have been warning and documenting about this MarxoFascist coup under Obama since 2008.  These scandals are just the tip of the iceberg if we were able ever to know the full truth of what this regime has been engaged in doing against the American people, ALL IN THE NAME OF  ‘fairness’, ‘equality’, ‘common sense’ and safety’.

However, don’t get your hopes up that any of the current known scandals are going to result in justice being done upon this regime.  None of this matters.  Obama’s Praetorian media will not permit him to be in any danger of real harm.  I contend Obama could shoot a toddler in the head on live television and the Apologists for this regime would excuse him and no one in Congress, especially under Boehner would dare act against the “Historic first black man president”.  He will be justified for whatever he does by his goose-stepping drones of Gibmedats.

Besides, some of these scandals were leaked by the Obama regime itself, a political ruse for political purposes.  Some of these scandals were known by the media for over a year who sat on them so no harm would come to their messiah and their religion.   Letting these scandals hit the public mindset now, takes the spotlight heat off the Benghazi treason and dereliction and it gets all this out in the open so it doesn’t have any effect on the 2014 elections where Obama “wins back” Congress  for a single-party dictatorship under his rule.

The IRS targeting of Conservative, TEA Party and Christian groups is evidence of the fact Obama is waging war against his political enemies.  His agents acting for the IRS even demanded to know the content of Christian prayers for groups and people they ended up harassing and intimidating into silence.

Here’s an overview of the Obama IRS intimidation scandal in a nutshell:

The direct attacks and intimidation of Obama’s political enemies is simply the method they are employing in this MarxoFascist coup of America.  If you think these scandals are contained in themselves, you better think again.  This evil regime and oligarchy in Washington D.C. has been working overtime the last four and a half years in collecting data and private information on ALL AMERICANS.  Not Jihadists from the Middle East, but Middle Class Americans from right here at home.  The reason?  Well, the DHS says that the clear and present danger to the United States are domestic Right Wing Extremists, not Islamic Jihadists actually engaged in killing Americans.

Therefore this regime has been using federal agencies and Alphabets to obtain private information on nearly every American to be stored in massive databases, for unspecified ‘future use’.  Think that sounds conspiratorial?Well, it has been admitted that Obama’s IN-Justice Department was engaged in confiscating private e-mails and phone numbers of AP reporters.  I submit that AP is NOT the only journalist organization that has had private information confiscated.  I’m pretty sure ANYONE, including bloggers and average folks from their homes who report on this regime, have had every shred of private information collected from them.

It’s what Marxist/Leftist regimes in the world always do to their citizens they see as a threat to their power.  It’s a precursor to the elimination of political opponents.  It enables them to “use” that information later as a pretext and justification for arresting, detaining, and silencing those ‘threats’.  While much of Conservative America has been warning about all the tyranny their groups are enduring under Obama, His Heinous decided to fire a warning shot across the bow of the media – not to cross him or his agenda with any unkind words.

DOJ secretly confiscates phone records of reporters at the AP.

The DOJ having the authority to do warrantless wiretaps without presenting justification to a judge is alarming. The DOJ having the authority to do such wiretapping against reporters in the media, who provide the fourth estate to protect -and check- the balance of power, is well beyond alarming.

Again, this is what Marxist/Leftist regimes in the world always do to their citizens and institutions they see as a threat to their power.  Obtaining all that data enables them to “use” that information later as justification for charging their political enemies with crimes, arresting and detaining them, and in so doing -silencing those ‘threats’.  That’s just what Obama and Holder did to Fox News reporter James Rosen.  This is what Stalinist regimes have done in the past and it’s what Obama’s regime is DOING RIGHT NOW:

Eric Holder charges Fox News reporter as ‘co-conspirator’ in espionage case, signs warrant against reporter.

The Justice Department seized phone records and emails sent to a private account of Fox News’ chief Washington correspondent, James Rosen, in an investigation into a 2009 story about U.N. sanctions and North Korea’s nuclear program.

Now before you assume this regime’s charge against Rosen is legit, The New York Times had engaged in far more egregious treason and crimes to aid our enemies, and nothing like what Obama’s DOJ has done to Fox.  This is a clear-cut case of Obama waging war on all of those whom he and his regime have deemed ‘targets’.

Roger Ailes responds to a clear effort to silence and intimidate Fox News.

He rejects the government’s effort to “criminalize the pursuit of investigative journalism and falsely characterize a Fox News reporter to a Federal judge as a ‘co-conspirator’ in a crime.”

“The administration’s attempt to intimidate Fox News and its employees will not succeed and their excuses will stand neither the test of law, the test of decency, nor the test of time.   We will not allow a climate of press intimidation, unseen since the McCarthy era, to frighten any of us away from the truth.”

This assault on the Press is nothing new for Obama.  His regime has been engaged in attacking and charging those whom support Republicans and Conservatives with all sorts of crimes and offenses designed to PUNISH and DESTROY.  Case-in-point is what Obama’s regime did to Gibson Guitar, while ignoring their competitors who were Democrat supporters.  This is the same technique used by the IRS to intimidate and silence any activism for Republican candidates.  It may explain why the GOP had 4 million votes less than in 2008.  Note the extortion the Obama regime exacted out of Gibson Guitars in order for them to remain in business.

DOJ targeted, raided and punished Gibson Guitars because the CEO gave money to Republican candidates.

The inexplicable raid nearly two years ago on a guitar maker for using allegedly illegal wood that its competitors also used was another targeting by this administration of its political enemies.

This is the act of a Chicago Crime Mob.  A shake-down.  Not the character of a legitimate president and administration, but a cabal, an evil regime.

Since we have established as FACT in the above links that the Obama regime is engaged in obtaining and seizing personal information in order to intimidate, punish and destroy political enemies – a little-seen news story from over a month ago, should scare the living crap out of you.  If Obama’s regime is using the Department of Justice and every Federal alphabet agency to collect data on Americans in order to criminalize and silence them, what do you think is going to happen to gun owners with this regime’s “massive database” of personal info on all Americans?

ATF Seeks ‘Massive’ Database of Personal Info: ‘Assets, Relatives, Associates and More’

A recent solicitation from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) reveals that the agency is seeking a “massive” online database capable of pulling up individuals’ personal information, connections and associates.

On March 28, ATF posted the notice on FedBizOpps.gov, entitled “Investigative System.”  The solicitation was updated on April 5 with a few minor changes.

The document says that the system will be utilized by staff “to provide rapid searches on various entities for example; names, telephone numbers, utility data and reverse phone look-ups, as a means to assist with investigations, and background research on people, assets and businesses.”

The system is described as a “massive online data repository system that contains a wide variety of data sources both historically and current that can be utilized in support of investigations and backgrounds.”

The IRS, DOJ and now the ATF and DHS creating massive databases of YOUR personal information – YOUR friends and acquaintances, YOUR assets and YOUR businesses.  Obviously this regime considers you to be a greater danger than Al Qaeda, since this regime also has made collecting such data on Islamic extremists verboten and has removed any reference of terrorism with Islam.  Instead, YOU are considered to be the terrorist by the Obama regime (see again the April 2009 DHS terror assessment report).
What will Obama’s ATF do with such a “massive database” of your personal information?  The same thing every despotic regime does with any information it can use or twist to justify making you bow to their tyrants – or justify eliminating you from existence.
Don’t laugh this warning off.  History teaches us what Leftist egomaniacs and narcissists do to their own people once they achieve the level of power and control over their people that Obama has.
The MarxoFascists are at war, with you and me – the American people.  The longer it takes us to wake up to that reality – the harder it will be to prevent what every Left/Marxist/National Socialist regime perpetrated on their own people who would not submit and join the ‘utopianists’.

Obama Regime Threatens Action Against State of Kansas If It Dares Enforce Pro Gun Law.

gunHolder

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder says any state law that defends the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution and  ‘overrides’ any Federal Gun Law is null and void and ‘unconstitutional’.

Remember when we learned last week that the Obama regime will decide what laws to enforce and which to ignore?  Well, it seems that if any state DARES to try and protect the Bill of Rights and the Constitution from Federal edicts that abolish the Constitution by default, the Obama regime will spring immediately into action (even though they are still dragging their feet on Benghazi) – and prepare to take immediate action against any state daring to defy His Heinous and the MarxoFascist agenda.

Kansas overwhelmingly voted for and enacted SB102 – The Second Amendment Preservation Actdeclaring that the federal government has no power to regulate guns manufactured, sold and kept only in Kansas.  The legislation signed Tuesday also applies to ammunition made, sold and kept in the state. The new law took effect at the end of last week and makes it a felony for a federal agent to enforce any law, regulation, order or treaty regulating such items.

The Obama regime however will have none of this.  In record time – Eric Holder fired off an angry letter to Governor Brownback asserting that it is “UnConstitutional” for the State of Kansas to interfere with any Federal “Law” that violates the Constitution.

The stage is being set for an eventual confrontation and Constitutional crisis.  I have said repeatedly that in any Marxist takeover of a society – there must be violence and bloodshed blamed on the opposition of the new regime – so that the iron fist of tyranny can be ‘legally’ imposed and the political opposition eliminated – by force most often.

Given the statements of Obama officials and policy makers towards Christians and ‘Red states’ – we are already in the midst of a cold civil war in this country.  The question becomes, who has the willpower to act against what they see as a threat?  The Obama MarxoFascist Regime, or Constitutional Christian Conservatives Obama and his Ruling Class have labeled ‘domestic terrorists’ and ‘monsters’.

Breitbart has the story.

Holder Threatens Kansas Over New Gun Law

holder-warns

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback received a letter today from Attorney General Eric Holder threatening action against the state should it enforce SB102, the pro 2nd Amendment law Brownback signed into law last month.

The new law declares that the federal government has no power to regulate guns manufactured, sold and kept only in Kansas.

Any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the government of the United States which violates the second amendment to the constitution of the United States is null, void and unenforceable in the state of Kansas.The legislation made it a felony for a federal agent to enforce any law, regulation, order or treaty regulating  ammunition made, sold and kept in the state because the federal government does not “interstate commerce” authority over such items.

The law became effective only a week ago, but already Holder has leapt into action, firing off a letter to the governor of Kansas threatening to take “all appropriate action including litigation if necessary” to prevent the state of Kansas from protecting the 2nd Amendment. (Amazing for a guy who didn’t even know about his own department’s gun-running operation, Fast and Furious until months after a border patrol agent was killed by one of its guns.) But when a state passes a law he doesn’t like - this Attorney General is FAST!

“In purporting to override federal law and to criminalize the official acts of federal officers, SB102 directly conflicts with federal law and is therefore unconstitutional.”

“Under the Supremacy Clause…Kansas may not prevent federal employees and officials from carrying out their official responsibilities.  And a state certainly may not criminalize the exercise of federal responsibilities.  Because SB102 conflicts with federal firearms laws and regulations, federal law supercedes this new statute; all provisions of federal laws and their implementing regulations therefore continue to apply.”

Michael Boldin, founder of the Tenth Amendment Center, pointed out the flaws in Holder’s reasoning at Right Side News:

1. Kansas is NOT purporting to criminalize the exercise of constitutional federal responsibilities.  On the contrary, the bill criminalizes what the state has determined is unconstitutional.   It is the position that such federal acts are indeed a violation of the Constitution.  No matter how much Eric might believe it to be otherwise, his view is obviously not universal – especially in Kansas.

2. The Supremacy Clause.  Holder takes the position that all tyrants do – that everything they do is authorized, anything to the contrary – worthless.  But Holder is wrong.  The Supremacy Clause doesn’t say that “any law in conflict with federal law” is void.  It says that only those laws “in pursuance” of the constitution are supreme.  The new Kansas legislation, again, takes the position that such federal acts are not constitutional, and therefore not supreme.

3. Historical Precedent.  The 1850 Fugitive Slave Act was a federal law that basically required all states in the north to act as slave catchers for black people claimed as property in the South.  It’s one of the most disgusting acts in American history.  A number of northern states passed laws similar to the new Kansas law, criminalizing federal agents for attempting to kidnap people in their states.    Although the feds still claimed the same kind of authority that Eric Holder has claimed today, they didn’t have the manpower to enforce.  Read more about that here.    As an aside, if Holder would like to take the position that such resistance to federal slave laws was wrong, he’s welcome to publicly state that.

There is also a precedent to fighting federal gun control laws and winning.

After the Brady bill was signed into law in the nineties,  Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack sued the Clinton administration claiming the federal government had overstepped its bounds. The case found its way to the U.S. Supreme Court, and Sheriff Mack won.

“There’s still hope and local sovereignty, state sovereignty, state’s rights is the solution. We’ve got to have local officials that tell the federal government there’s just a few things you’re not going to do here,” Mack said at a gun rights event at an American Legion in Lima, Ohio, last February.

“If we have local officials, sheriffs and state representatives and governors nullifying what the federal government is doing it’s all proper, it’s all constitutional, and it is completely in line with state sovereignty and the 10th Amendment.”

“The 10th Amendment guarantees this process that we’re about today. Acting on the powers of the states we can keep this movement peaceful and effective and put the federal government back where they belong,” Mack concluded.

UPDATE: 5-4

KANSAS TO PROSECUTE FEDERAL AGENTS WHO ATTEMPT TO ENFORCE FEDERAL GUN CONTROL LAWS

gun_rally Sign

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback just signed into law a statute that “bars the federal government from regulating guns and ammunition manufactured and stored within Kansas state lines.”

Moreover, the new law makes it a felony for federal authorities to attempt to enforce federal gun control laws, treaties, or rules related to firearms within Kansas state lines. Federal agents would not be arrested but will be prosecuted on “a complaint-and-summons basis.”

Naturally, U.S. Attorney general Eric Holder is furious. Already he has sent a letter to Brownback promising, “The United States will take all appropriate action, including litigation if necessary, to prevent the State of Kansas from interfering with the activities of federal officials enforcing the law.”

Holder cites the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, which gives supremacy to federal laws over state laws.

Kansas, however, is citing the Interstate Commerce Clause, “contending that Washington has no right to regulate guns that were made in Kansas and never cross state lines.”

The play Kansas is making is to keep its gun business within the state, which they believe nullifies the federal government’s legal right to regulate. Guns and ammunition would be manufactured, stored, and sold only in Kansas.

Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach, a former constitutional law professor, helped to write the law and says that the bill is not symbolic; it was written carefully and with the purpose of surviving a court challenge.

Using cherry-picked suspect polls, Democrats and their media have now entered month six of a relentless, self-defeating campaign. So bitter and humiliated are they over the Senate loss of Toomey-Manchin, they have forgotten that the gun debate is always a plus for Republicans and a loser for Democrats.

For proof of how badly the political right wants to keep the gun control issue alive, look no further than the law the state of Kansas just passed to intentionally provoke this fight. Furthermore, look at the flurry of similar bills currently being proposed in 28 states.

DHS Training Video: White Gun Owners Portrayed As Terrorists

AmericanTerrorists

DHS Website contains ‘training video’ for deputized agencies.  Appears to be ‘conditioning’ for upcoming gun confiscation/demonization of white gun owners.

Very disturbing video straight from DHS website – they use it to help train all of the deputized agencies during a crisis, even hospital administrators, media faces, everything and everyone that would be involved in such an event.

The date of the video is unknown, but the video description links to the DHS website featuring documents that were uploaded in 2009 and 2012.

The DHS has long been suspected of gearing up to fight Americans. The agency has released documents describing conservatives, libertarians, people who distrust the federal government, people who oppose illegal immigration, who oppose the Federal Reserve and who support gun rights, among other things, as potential terrorists and “domestic extremists.”

The agency has further stoked fears by purchasing nearly 2 billion rounds of mostly hollow point ammunition, 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles, nearly 3,000 mine-resistant MRAP vehicles and$2 million worth of paper targets depicting Americans, including women and children.

Last month, Arkansas State Fusion Center Director Richard Davis admitted that the DHS spies on “anti-government” Americans.

Today Breitbart reports that the GAO (Governemnt Accounting Office) is investigating the reasons WHY the DHS has ordered more hollow-point ammunition than our military, holding more than 260 million rounds in stock for roughly 70,000 government agents authorized to use such arms:

Investigating The DHS Ammo Purchases

Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who chairs one of the House oversight subcommittees, held a hearing to find out why the Department of Homeland Security has been ordering so much ammunition. 

“It is entirely … inexplicable why the Department of Homeland Security needs so much ammunition,” Chaffetz said at the hearing.

He revealed that the department currently has more than 260 million rounds in stock.

He said the department bought more than 103 million rounds in 2012 and used 116 million that same year — among roughly 70,000 agents.

Comparing that with the small-arms purchases procured by the U.S. Army, he said the DHS is churning through between 1,300 and 1,600 rounds per officer, while the U.S. Army goes through roughly 350 rounds per soldier… He noted that is “roughly 1,000 rounds more per person.”

Now, according to US News Washington Whispers, the GAO is looking into the ammo purchases.

The congressional investigative agency is jumping into the fray just as legislation was introduced in both the Senate and the House to restrict the purchase of ammo by some government agencies (except the Department of Defense). The AMMO Act, introduced Friday, would prevent agencies from buying more ammunition if “stockpiles” are greater than what they were in previous administrations.

Head to US News for the rest. You won’t want to miss the “Lionel Commentary” on the DHS Ammo Splurge.

Comply With Police State – Lose Your Rights, Assert Your Rights – You Will Be Punished

NRCJGrisham

Combat Vet arrested in rural Texas and gun illegally confiscated in another random example of the Amerikan police state.

The America of Mayberry and Andy Taylor is apparently dead and buried.  Todays society has more in common with East Germany or the Soviet Union in terms of where oppression is going.

If you dare to take a hike with your son, even it’s a rural backwater of some kind – you better be helpless and disarmed if there be any law enforcement nearby.  For you will be stopped, questioned who, what, why,where, and when of yourself – and if you dare assert your rights – well, bad things will happen to you and you can kiss your guns goodbye.  Just as it did Army Master Sergeant. C. J. Grisham recently experienced himself.

“We’re exempt from the law” is not a phrase you want to hear from law enforcement in a constitutional republic as they manhandle you to the ground because they simply deem you a threat.  Nor do you want to hear a supposed police officer tell you that the law ‘doesn’t apply in this day and age as they handcuff you and assert that having a weapon is an automatic illegality unless otherwise ‘demonstrated’ suggesting that anyone owning a gun makes you dangerous.  And of course, when asked what laws you are being arrested for breaking – the police will not answer you and simply make one up when they process you.

It’s a sad day when an American hero, a combat vet states what is now the obvious truth: “If you comply, you’re giving up your rights; if you don’t, you’ll be punished.”

Texas Soldier Arrested for ‘Rudely Displaying’ Weapon

I just got off the phone with Army Master Sergeant. C. J. Grisham, a serving American soldier and veteran of the the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, who recently was illegally disarmed by the Temple Police Department while out for a walk with his son.

“We live out in the country in Texas, near Temple,” he told me. “My son and I were on a ten-mile hike so that he could earn his hiking merit badge – it’s the last badge he needs to become an Eagle Scout.” But half way into the hike, Grisham said, “a police officer pulled up.” Initially, he was “cordial” and he “asked what we were doing.” Grisham told him. “Then he looked at my rifle. I carry a rifle any time I walk around because there are feral hogs and cougars and things like that.”

From here, things took a turn for the worse.

“‘Where you going with that rifle?’ he asked me. I said, ‘does it matter? Am I breaking any laws?’” Then, he says, the officer “grabbed the rifle without telling me – but it was attached to me. My immediate reaction as a combat veteran was to grab it back and then take a step back. I asked him what he was doing. So he pulled his gun on me. Then I thought about my son, so I put my hands off my gun and he told me to move over to the car. Luckily my son had the video camera to document the hike for his merit badge. I told him to turn it on.”

The video of the incident is below. I’d recommend you watch the whole thing. Note the officers’ ignorance of the rules they are there to uphold, the suggestion that the law doesn’t apply in this “day and age,” and the persistent claim that American citzens are presumed to have their weapons illegally unless otherwise demonstrated. Note the officer’s claim that merely owning a gun makes someone dangerous. Note the conflation of a soldier in a war zone with a citizen in rural Texas. Note the presistent refusal to explain what law Grisham has broken.

Particularly chilling is the officer’s telling Grisham that a police officer is “allowed to” carry a weapon, but that Grisham is not — despite Grisham’s having a permit. “We’re exempt from the law” is not a phrase you want to hear from law enforcement in a constitutional republic.

In an interview today, I asked Grisham why he thought the officer behaved in this way. “I don’t know,” he said “It’s not the law. You can’t go around taking guns without probable cause or a reasonable suspicion that someone is about to commit a crime. A lot of what the officers said is illegal, against Texas law, against national precedent, against Supreme Court decisions. I was legally exercising a right, especially in Texas where we have a right to carry weapons openly, and I have a concealed-carry permit. I wasn’t looking to make an issue out of it. I go up to Austin for Second Amendment rallies with my AR [rifle] all the time. But here in the country? Ultimately, it happened because I stood up to a police officer. I support the police. I’m on the public safety committee. But I also know that when I’m stopped by a police officer, I don’t have to say anything unless I’m accused of committing a crime. I’m not being a prick. I don’t think it was the gun initially, I think it was that my reaction hurt his ego.”

I suggest that this creates a Catch-22: If you comply, you’re giving up your rights; if you don’t, you’ll be punished. He agrees.

I ask what ”rudely displaying a firearm” means. ”There’s no such wording,” Grisham tells me. “I couldn’t find the word ‘rude’ in the penal code at all. You can openly carry a rifle as long as it’s not threatening. If it’s slung across your shoulder, it’s not threatening. When you point a gun at somebody then you’re breaking the law. But just walking around with a gun strapped in front of you is not threatening in any manner.”

What happens next? “I still don’t have my guns back and they took my concealed-carry license. I’m not accused of a gun crime, so there’s no reason for them to have my guns right now and the problem is that, what’s happened in the past with other soldiers is that the prosecutors will try and get the soldiers to agree to the police dropping the charges if they confiscate the gun — to have the charges dropped at the expense of their gun. This is a workaround loophole for gun confiscation.”

Does this happen to soldiers a lot? I ask. ”Yes, this has happened several times in this area. To Staff Sergeant Nate Samson, for example. He had to fight these guys for ten months. The charges were dropped, but he has no justice. He doesn’t have a lot of money to fight them. I have a pretrial hearing on May 29. The police are dragging their feet, not releasing the video. They’re waiting as long as they can — playing hard to get. . . . The reason I’m aggressive on this is that, in the military, if this happens, they initiate a flag that halts your career. You can’t take leave, you can’t be promoted, can’t receive awards or decorations. I am supposed to move to new base in July. I can’t do that. I’ve been on active duty for 18 and a half years and it’s got my career on a hold.”

I ask about his son. “I’ve tried to tell my son that this isn’t normal; that police officers don’t walk around doing this. He’s developed an unrealistic fear of police officers. We were bowling yesterday and he freaked out when a police officer walked in. He’s traumatized by the incident — seeing a gun pulled on his dad. I’m proud of him for his reaction. He’s doing well . . . we sit down and talk to our kids about the Constitution and guns and safety. My son can use every single weapon I have in the house from the AK-47 to .38 special.”

Is it particularly bad at the moment? ”I think so, yes. All the attention that the media and the politicians are giving to ‘assault weapons’ — I insist that none of my guns are ‘assault’ anything – is causing people to call and complain about seeing one. And instead of saying, ‘hey there’s nothing to be afraid of,’ they go out and hassle legal gun owners. Law enforcement have a duty to recognize that if someone is lawfully carrying a weapon then you should leave them alone. Who cares what somebody complains about?”
