During the two terms of George Washington’s Presidency there really no organized political parties as we see now in the present. There were Federalists that supported the passage and formation of the U.S. Constitution giving more political authority to a national government and the Anti-Federalists who believed the U.S. Constitution took on too much authority over the individual states that became the United States of America.

In a Mark Alexander post that I sense is a response to President Barack Hussein Obama’s usurpations exerting more authority over ‘We the People’ than even the Constitution intended with its Checks and Balances paradigm via Executive Orders (EO). Obama’s usage of Eos to by-pass Congress unconstitutionally has been a misuse of Executive power nearly from the beginning of the current President’s Administration now stretching to the end of his second term in Office. The most recent egregious EO as of this posting is the imposition of the President’s desire to control America’s guns way beyond the scope of the intentions of the Second Amendment.

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. (2nd Amendment – FindLaw.com)

Frankly much of the teary-eyed press conference on his gun control EO was something I could agree with when it comes individuals purchasing guns. BUT my concerns are the details on individuals that would limit law abiding citizens from protecting themselves according to the Second Amendment. Also Obama did not provide a lot of details on the sellers of guns especially as it pertains to Joe American selling or giving a gun to a family member or to the next door neighbor Bubba American.

I listened to Judge Napolitano on Fox News tell some rules pertaining to an individual who doesn’t have a gun business but sells a gun. And I read a Napolitano article at Townhall.com about the requirements from doctors who listen to their patients talk about a gun. From that article:

He has also decreed that any licensee who fails to perform a background check on the person to whom the licensee has transferred a gun shall be guilty of a felony. Give a BB gun to your nephew on his 16th birthday without a federal license and you can go to prison.

By requiring physicians to report conversations with their patients about guns to the DHS, the president will be encouraging them to invade the physician-patient privilege; and I suspect that most doctors will ignore him.

Under the Constitution, fundamental liberties (speech, a free press, worship, self-defense, travel and privacy, to name a few) are accorded the highest protection from governmental intrusion. One can only lose a fundamental right by READ ENTIRETY (Quote from page 2The Constitution, the President and Guns; By Judge Andrew Napolitano; Townhall.com; 1/7/16)

I am convinced there are more unconstitutional threats to the Obama EO that I haven’t been able to find – yet. I wonder if Obama intends to bury the EO details under Executive Privilege.

Here is Mark Alexander’s post that shows respect for the Constitution, Patriotism and if you pay attention you will realize the Founding Fathers’ intentions about the Federal government and religious faith.

Every Patriot’s Resolve

Timeless Advice for 2016

 

By Mark Alexander

January 6, 2016

The Patriot Post

“Resolve to perform what you ought. Perform without fail what you resolve.” –Benjamin Franklin (1772)

This past week, my family’s ancestral grandfather clock rang in its 266th new year. This early American instrument, which towers above our dining room table, was set into motion in 1750 by its maker, Benjamin Chandlee, the eldest son of the first immigrant in my maternal family line.

That same year, Benjamin also completed an almost identical clock for Henry “Light-Horse Harry” Lee, a cavalry officer in George Washington’s revolutionary army, who bequeathed that clock to his son, Robert E. Lee. It now stands in the president’s house at Washington and Lee University. (In addition to being among the earliest and most respected American clockmakers, the Chandlees also produced George Washington’s surveying instruments.)

I mention this clock by way of making this point: Our New Year’s Eve celebration was not defined by celebrity fanfare in Times Square, but in the rich context of American history and the legacy of our family and Founders.

That legacy frames the mission of The Patriot Post’s advocacy for individual Liberty, the restoration of constitutional limits on government and the judiciary, and the promotion of free enterprise, national defense and traditional American values. As my friend Cal Thomas says, “The Patriot Post interprets current issues in the conservative context of American history — the immutable context of American Liberty.”

Unlike the now-ubiquitous Internet publications and blogs, every word of analysis our Patriot editors have posted since our inception has been tempered by historical context. That distinguishes The Patriot Post from every other news, policy and opinion source on the Web, with the exception of our friends at The Heritage Foundation, who were instrumental in our launch 20 years ago. That is also why we have been on the Web longer than virtually any other publication.

Today, we are charging into 2016. As anticipated, this year began with yet another leftist assault on American Liberty and its most fundamental assurance, “the right of the people to keep and bear arms.” Barack Obama’s faux tears when announcing his latest constitutional insult would not have passed even the worst B-movie standards.

Of course, Obama and his Socialist Democratic Party statists know that, in the words of James Madison, “[T]he advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any.”

Those words ring truer today than ever — and it is precisely that “barrier against the enterprises of ambition” that leftists would most like to demolish.

And, as Madison’s Supreme Court appointee, Joseph Story, confirmed in his “Commentaries on the Constitution,” “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”

As we set about laying the foundation for real change in 2016, I’ve chosen some wise words of advice from a few of our Founders that best serve as a beacon to all American Patriots!

From George Washington: “Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire called conscience. … Do not conceive that fine Clothes make fine Men, any more than fine feathers make fine Birds. A plain genteel dress is more admired and obtains more credit than lace and embroidery in the Eyes of the judicious and sensible. … Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence; true friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks and adversity before it is entitled to the appellation. … Your love of Liberty – your respect for the laws – your habits of industry – and your practice of the moral and religious obligations, are the strongest claims to national and individual happiness. … We should never despair, our Situation before has been unpromising and has changed for the better, so I trust, it will again. If new difficulties arise, we must only put forth new Exertions and proportion our Efforts to the exigency of the times. … The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. … Our cause is noble; it is the cause of mankind! … We have therefore to resolve to conquer or die.”

From Thomas Jefferson: “Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time, who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing. … It is of great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and a third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good disposition. … It is a happy circumstance in human affairs that evils which are not cured in one way will cure themselves in some other. … Adore God. Reverence and cherish your parents. Love your neighbor as yourself, and your country more than yourself. Be just. Be true. Murmur not at the ways of Providence.”

From Thomas Paine: “Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle, is a species of vice. … These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. … I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death. … The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind. … The Sun never shined on a cause of greater worth. … What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.”

From Benjamin Franklin: “Have you something to do tomorrow; do it to-day. … Strive to be the greatest man in your country, and you may be disappointed. Strive to be the best and you may succeed: he may well win the race that runs by himself. … A Spoonful of Honey will catch more Flies than a Gallon of Vinegar. … Sloth, like Rust, consumes faster than Labour wears; while the used Key is always bright… Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time; for that’s the stuff life is made of. … Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise. … Wish not so much to live long as to live well.”

The foes of Liberty should take note of these words from the Declaration of the Cause and Necessity of Taking up Arms (1775): “With hearts fortified with these animating reflections, we most solemnly, before God and the world, declare, that, exerting the utmost energy of those powers, which our beneficent Creator hath graciously bestowed upon us, the arms we have compelled by our enemies to assume, we will, in defiance of every hazard, with unabating firmness and perseverance employ for the preservation of our liberties; being with one mind resolved to die freemen rather than to live as slaves.”

Patriots, in this presidential election year, I invoke this timeless wisdom from George Washington’s farewell address (1796): “Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.” Indeed, there are among even the ranks of Republican presidential contenders some pretenders. Caveat Emptor! The future of Liberty hinges on the ability and willingness of grassroots Patriots to distinguish between the genuine article and the false prophets.

Finally, a word from Ronald Reagan, the man who lifted me, when a young college student, from the liberal abyss, and called millions in my generation into reverence for the fundamentals of American Liberty: “Live each day to the fullest. Live each day with enthusiasm, optimism and hope. If you do, I am convinced that your contribution to this wonderful experiment we call America will be profound.”

Thank you for sustaining The Patriot Post’s advocacy of Liberty by your support of our mission and operations budget in 2015!

Biden Hails the 23 Gun Control Steps Obama Took on His Own

Biden Hails the 23 Gun Control Steps Obama Took on His Own

 

By Susan Jones

December 3, 2013 – 10:33 AM

CNS News

 

(CNSNews.com) – On Monday, invoking the Dec. 14 “tragedy in Newtown,” Vice President Joe Biden told Americans, “You have my word that the President and I are doing everything we can to make sure no parent loses their child to gun violence.”

 

And he admitted that they’re doing it “on our own,” without Congress.

 

“And so even after a minority of senators blocked commonsense legislation to reduce gun violence this spring, we’re pushing forward,” he said.

 

“Now, it’s not enough to take these steps on our own — we still need Congress to pass comprehensive legislation to reduce gun violence. We need expanded background checks, and we need to create serious penalties for gun trafficking. There is no question that these kinds of measures would protect our kids and keep our communities safer.”

 

Biden hailed the 23 “executive actions” President Obama laid out in January to reduce “gun violence.” Biden said the administration has either completed or made significant progress on all of them.

 

“No parent should ever face the horror of the scene at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Or a movie theater in Aurora. Or a temple in Oak Creek. Or the campus at Virginia Tech. We’ve seen too much gun violence as a country. And if there’s even one thing we can do to save a life, it is our most sacred duty to try. That’s where I stand,” said Biden, who may be contemplating a run for president in 2016.

 

The anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting is a week from Saturday, and Connecticut officials are expected to release recordings of the 911 calls on Wednesday.

 

Biden was in Asia when the White House released his tough-on-guns message, which was signed “Joe.”

 

The message links to a list of the “progress we’ve made” on the 23 executive actions. Here are a few of them:

 

— “Begun to address unnecessary legal barriers that prevent states from reporting information about those prohibited from having guns.”

 

— “Issued a presidential memorandum requiring federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.”

 

— “Took steps to maximize enforcement efforts.”

 

— “Helped law enforcement avoid returning guns to the wrong hands.”

 

— “Published data on lost and stolen guns.”

 

— “Reviewed categories of dangerous people prohibited from having guns.”

 

You can see the full list of executive actions here.

 

On Tuesday, coincidentally, the House Judiciary Committee was holding a hearing on the president’s “constitutional duty to faithfully execute the laws.”

 

Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.) told Fox News on Tuesday that she and other members of Congress are “appalled at the president’s actions — they are clearly unconstitutional.” Bachmann said the Constitution limits the president’s power — “even though the president doesn’t act that way.”

 

Bachmann said Obama can’t “unilaterally make these decisions, Congress is a part of the government as well, you’re not a king, you’re not a dictator” — even though he sometimes acts that way.

 

The list of Republican complaints includes Obama’s unilateral changes to the Affordable Care Act, which Bachmann called “political management”; and his use of “prosecutorial discretion” in determining which illegal aliens to deport.

Obama Signs 23 Executive Orders On Guns


BHO signs 23 EOs gun control

I posted a Matthew Staver essay on Obama’s “19” Executive Orders that was actually written before President BHO went public with ignoring the Second Amendment. Looks like the number was a little off. Barack Hussein Obama went on to issue 23 EOs in the name of gun control believing ignorantly that Executive fiat will stop the massacres and violent criminals. All Obama is doing is preventing Americans from protecting themselves from mass murderers and violent criminals.

 

Here is another email I am posting that is from Conservative Action Alerts (CAA) that will give you plenty of opportunities to send a CAA fax to the White House expressing your displeasure. At first glance the fax blast sounds awesome but the link sends you a page that appears needs a donation of any size to send that fax. Nevertheless, the email is a very awesome essay and well worth the read.

Obama Signs 23 Executive Orders On Guns

 

Sent by Conservative Action Alerts

Sent: 1/17/2013 9:12 AM

 

ALERT: Obama signs executive orders to accomplish national gun control. Act Now and Fax Congress: Tell them to Refuse any and all forms of Gun Control – including Executive Orders!

 

Conservative American,

 

Yesterday, we warned that Obama was planning on signing nineteen executive orders today. It happened, several orders were signed this morning. The thing is, we didn’t get nineteen orders as reports held – we got twenty-three!

 

And they aren’t yet even available for review. They are no-where on the White House website, and a representative from the White House told Conservative Action Alerts today that they should be available “in a few days.”

 

This is Obama’s transparency.

 

Congress must act to counter every single one of these orders! They have the power to do it, and they must take action.

 

Take Action and DEMAND CONGRESS to OPPOSE any and all attempts to DISARM AMERICANS through federal gun-control! Congress must FIGHT any piece of legislation or executive order that would dismantle the Second Amendment! Blast Faxes Now!

 

The White House’s “rationale” for expansive executive action is simply because it is easier to accomplish – there is less “political difficulty” because Congress is bypassed altogether.

 

Among other things, the executive actions could give the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention power to conduct studies and national research on guns; they may also establish stricter federal and state gun databases (in other words, establish mandate a gun-registry).

 

Not surprisingly, gun-grabbing politicians pushed Obama hard to take as much action on gun-control as he can. Today they succeeded.

 

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) told Vice President Biden “to do as much by executive order as possible.” Further, the chairman of the House Democrats’ Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA), said that an executive ban on magazine and the establishment of across-the-board background checks would be as efficient as an outright assault weapons ban – and, again, such would not require Congress.

 

Not only will the enforcement of the twenty-three freshly-signed presidential orders be expensive to carry-out – like most everything Obama is involved in – but they will deprive Americans of their Constitutional liberty to “keep and bear arms.”

 

According to former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese III, any executive action opposed to the Constitution is grounds for impeachment. Meese says, “It would not be legal. It would not be constitutional. And, indeed, if [Obama] tried to override the Second Amendment in any way, I believe it would be an impeachable offense.”

 

Obama must not be left unchallenged on this: the right “to keep and bear arms” is a natural right codified in our Supreme Law. Neither Obama nor anyone in the federal government has any legitimate authority to destroy it!

 

Congress must reject any and all forms of federal gun-control as they are in direct opposition to the Second Amendment! Congress must fight the coming Assault Weapons Ban in the Senate, and they must fight all twenty-three of Obama’s Executive Orders!

 

Take Action and DEMAND CONGRESS to OPPOSE any and all attempts to DISARM AMERICANS through federal gun-control! Congress must FIGHT any piece of legislation or executive order that would dismantle the Second Amendment! Blast Faxes Now!

 

“The president is going to act… There are executive orders, executive action that can be taken. We haven’t decided what that is yet. But we’re compiling it all with the help [of] the attorney general and all the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action we believe is required.” – Joe Biden

 

So the question is: can executive orders be stopped?

 

An executive order – which carries the full force of law – is made a fact literally at the stroke of the President’s pen; it is done without debate and without the consent of Congress or the American people. (That is precisely why they are so dangerous when used.)

 

The executive order, though it exists by precedent, is an unconstitutional mechanism that makes a joke of our government and its so-called “separated powers.” Congress is vested with the power to write laws, not the President.

 

Congress must reject any and all executive orders that would succeed in disarming law-abiding Americans.

 

The good news is: Congress does have power to fight executive orders, and we must demand they do just that seeing that Obama wants to accomplish arms control through by his own command.

 

There are three ways that Congress can act to oppose Obama’s “power of the pen” – first, they can overturn any executive order by a 2/3 majority vote in both chambers (like reversing a veto); second, they can introduce legislation that would interfere with an order; and, third, they can refuse to appropriate funds for the execution of the order.

 

We must demand the U.S. Congress to – in addition to refusing any piece of federal gun-control legislation – flex their muscles and fight the Executive Branch now that Obama has increased gun-control by executive order.

 

Take Action and DEMAND CONGRESS to OPPOSE any and all attempts to DISARM AMERICANS through federal gun-control! Congress must FIGHT any piece of legislation or executive order that would dismantle the Second Amendment! Blast Faxes Now!

 

Barack Obama told Meet the Press that he is committed to not let the opportunity for increased gun-control “drift away” after people begin to shift their attention away from December’s Connecticut shooting, the event that gun-grabbing politicians have been using to justify their tyrannical ends. Obama said,

 

“The question then becomes whether we are actually shook up enough by what happened [in Sandy Hook] that it does not just become another one of these routine episodes where it gets a lot of attention for a couple of weeks and then it drifts away… It certainly won’t feel like that to me. This is something that, you know, that was the worst day of my presidency. And it’s not something that I want to see repeated.”

 

He also committed to a one-year time-frame, saying, “I’d like to get it done in the first year. I will put forward a very specific proposal based on the recommendations that Joe Biden’s task force is putting together as we speak. And so this is not something that I will be putting off.”

 

Hoping to convince the American people to befriend disarmament, Obama claims that dismantling the Second Amendment will make schoolchildren safer. We know he truly doesn’t believe such nonsense – otherwise he’d have all of his personal bodyguards disarmed! (Which we know he’ll never do; in fact, on January 10th he signed a law that gives him and his wife secret service protection for life.)

 

On top of voicing his support for the Feinstein Ban (and other attempts to remove guns from the homes of law-abiding Americans), Barack Obama has a “hidden” gun-control agenda that he may accomplish through the ATF.

 

According to Conservative Action Alerts contributor Jim Kouri, the Obama Administration may “order the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to take the classification step. Some gun-grabbers view the designation of Street Sweeper shotguns as Title 2 firearms during the Clinton administration as precedent for such a move.”

 

Obama will never disarm his protectors, yet he wants to disarm the American People from protecting themselves. What dangerous, evil, and unconstitutional hypocrisy!

 

Take Action and DEMAND CONGRESS to OPPOSE any and all attempts to DISARM AMERICANS through federal gun-control! Congress must FIGHT any piece of legislation or executive order that would dismantle the Second Amendment! Blast Faxes Now!

 

Obama doesn’t think the Feinstein ban goes far enough; the Democratic Senator’s “Assault Weapons Ban” is only one piece of their overall disarmament agenda.

 

The Washington Post reports:

 

“The White House is weighing a far broader and more comprehensive approach to curbing the nation’s gun violence than simply reinstating an expired ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition, according to multiple people involved in the administration’s discussions.” (emphasis ours)

 

As we mentioned above, President Obama appointed Vice President Joe Biden to lead a special, blue-ribbon group to investigate gun-related violence and propose “solutions.”

 

So far, the committee is pushing for the following:

 

§  universal background checks for gun buyers,

 

§  a centralized gun registry/database that would track the movement and sales of all privately-held firearms nationwide,

 

§  more stringent “mental health” checks, and

 

§  strengthening gun-free school zones and related penalties.

 

Do these laws sound like they belong in a free society? Not in the least.

 

But what else should expect from such a committee? Biden’s disarmament gang is made of, and takes opinions from, some of the most anti-Second Amendment individuals in the country: New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, The Brady Campaign’s Dan Gross, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., Education Secretary Arne Duncan, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

 

This is all to show that there are strong efforts to disarm the American people through “legal” – but unlawful – means. These efforts aren’t “solutions” … they are chains on a free people.

 

What’s more, Biden’s blue-ribbon “task force” is a typical act of Obama law-breaking itself because it violates the Federal Advisory Committee Act, a law that governs “any committee, board, commission, council, conference, panel, task force, or other similar group.” The Biden group violates this law in at least two ways: first, it has not been made subject to public scrutiny and no reports have been filed regarding its proceedings; and, second, the Biden group was created the day after Sandy Hook, although the law requires any such group to file its existence 15 days in advance of their first meeting.

 

It is clear that neither Obama nor Biden seem to care about the law – they care more about debarring law-abiding Americans from the ownership of firearms.

 

Take Action and DEMAND CONGRESS to OPPOSE any and all attempts to DISARM AMERICANS through federal gun-control! Congress must FIGHT any piece of legislation or executive order that would dismantle the Second Amendment! Blast Faxes Now!

 

In addition to the Obama Administration’s anti-gun agenda, members of Congress are also poised to take away our rights: consider the Feinstein Weapons Ban.

 

California’s Diane Feinstein – author of the 1994 Assault Weapons – has long been an enemy of gun-owners and the right to self-defense, an American principle. Senator Feinstein, keeping in line with Rahm Emanuel’s rule of thumb to “never waste a crisis,” almost immediately began calling for increased gun control after the terrible event in at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut.

 

Feinstein expressly stated that she will introduce sweeping gun control legislation the first day the 113th Congress is assembled. She said,

 

“On the first day of the new Congress, I intend to introduce a bill stopping the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of assault weapons as well as large ammunition magazines, strips and drums that hold more than 10 rounds.”

 

She also added that she has already been “gathering support” for such legislation in both the House and the Senate.

 

What this means is that a weapons ban could be a cold, hard fact this month! In fact, on January 22 the Senate will begin their new legislative session.

 

Remember, in 1994 it only took one day for Congress and President Clinton to “legally” remove guns from the hands and homes of law-abiding Americans!

 

Take Action and DEMAND CONGRESS to OPPOSE any and all attempts to DISARM AMERICANS through federal gun-control! Congress must FIGHT any piece of legislation or executive order that would dismantle the Second Amendment! Blast Faxes Now!

 

Feinstein’s resuscitation of her former assault weapons ban has wide support from Democrats. Also, just so you are aware, Feinstein didn’t scratch this bill up in response to the Connecticut shooting; no, she has been working on it for over a year waiting for the opportune time to ram it through!

 

Senator Frank Lautenberg, as we can expect, is “optimistic” about a Feinstein-led Assault Weapons Ban, saying, “I think we can get something done.” Schumer, like Feinstein, wants to see weapons banned, clip-sizes limited, and more paperwork required to purchase guns.

 

“The purpose of this bill is to get the weapons of war off the streets of our cities.” – Senator Feinstein

 

Democrat Representative Jerrold Nadler of New York believes that the nation will support stronger gun-control, especially if Barack Obama “exploits” what happened in Sandy Hook. The New York Rep. said on MSNBC that “These incidents, these horrible, horrible incidents … are happening more frequently, and they will continue to happen more and more frequently until someone with the bully pulpit – and that means the president – takes leadership and pushes Congress.”

 

Obama wasted no time in voicing his strong, “active” support for national legislation curbing gun-ownership. It is likely, now that Obama is approaching his final term that he will more vehemently assert gun-control. White House spokesperson Jay Carney has already suggested that the president will support gun-control efforts – in addition to Feinstein’s – including laws to eliminate what he referred to as the ‘gun show loophole’ relating to paperwork and high-capacity magazine sales. And we have Biden’s most recent hint: the executive order.

 

We must make our voices heard and tell Congress to reject the coming Feinstein Weapons Ban, and any other piece of legislation (or executive order) that would destroy the Second Amendment!

 

Take Action and DEMAND CONGRESS to OPPOSE any and all attempts to DISARM AMERICANS through federal gun-control! Congress must FIGHT any piece of legislation or executive order that would dismantle the Second Amendment! Blast Faxes Now!

 

The Fruit of Propaganda:

 

It is a sad fact that America today is divided over the right to self-defense.

 

Rather than call into question the environment in which the shooting took place – a gun-free zone, where self-defense is prohibited – so many mindlessly flock to liberal slogans like “less guns equals less violence.”

 

A White House petition demanding “immediate” gun control was created and gathered over 80,000 signatures in less than a day, while the petition only needed 25,000 to be seriously considered. The petition now holds over 194,000 names.

 

More than this, some of the anti-gun rhetoric being asserted by some are violent – even outright threats. Facebook posts, blogs, and Twitter have been used to carry messages like “murder every NRA member” or “get every member of the NRA to stand in a circle, aim & shoot!” Some people have also called for the murder of the NRA’s president, David Keene.

 

This is all to say the some of our fellow Americans would happily support more gun control – they already are organizing and, as we have seen, both active and vocal.

 

Folks like these are calling and writing their Senator asking for their neighbors to be disarmed through increased gun control. These individuals are pushing the Feinsteins, Bloombergs, and RINOs like Scott Brown, to support state and federal bans on assault weapons.

 

Now is the time for patriotic Americans to fight this liberal, anti-gun rhetoric and speak out! We must make sure that Senate and Representative Offices are getting twice or three times as many calls, letters, and faxes against gun control as they are for it.

 

Take Action and DEMAND CONGRESS to OPPOSE any and all attempts to DISARM AMERICANS through federal gun-control! Congress must FIGHT any piece of legislation or executive order that would dismantle the Second Amendment! Blast Faxes Now!

 

What has happened to the Bill of Rights?

 

The Second Amendment is a right, and “laws” that oppose it are unlawful and dangerous. There is no other way to say it.

 

Our founders were able to declare independence from the King England only because they were armed with modern weaponry.

 

Our Constitution – the Supreme Law of the Land – included the Second Amendment provision to “keep and bear arms” to ensure that the new American government could not disarm the people.

 

The right to bear arms is an essential part of liberty and a free society. Yes, our forefathers knew the importance of an armed citizenry as a check against big government and tyranny. Further, they knew that individuals should always be free to protect themselves, their family, and their property. That’s why they protected it in law.

 

Those who were armed were not considered offensive, violent, or malevolent in any way – in fact, early Americans considered defense to be a God-given right to secure households and keep evil at bay in society. Weapons were not held for aggression, but to resist aggression!

 

Right now there is a multitude of ideological aggressors wanting to destroy the Second Amendment by banning certain weapons, limiting access to ammunition, and increasing the bureaucratic “paperwork” required to purchase guns.

 

These aggressors are in the Congress and the Whitehouse … and they must be stopped!

 

Take Action and DEMAND CONGRESS to OPPOSE any and all attempts to DISARM AMERICANS through federal gun-control! Congress must FIGHT any piece of legislation or executive order that would dismantle the Second Amendment! Blast Faxes Now!

 

The Second Amendment must never be Limited:

 

One of the arguments for the reinstatement of an Assault Weapons Ban is that it only restricts “some” weapons, namely those of a military-grade, while leaving other weapons unaffected. Michael Bloomberg and Diane Feinstein claims they only are attack so-called “weapons of war.”

 

Here is the problem… the Second Amendment protects such weapons, while anti-gunners want to see them “off the streets of our cities.”

 

You see, anti-gun politicians don’t understand (or care about) the purpose of the Second Amendment. Thomas Mullen of the Washington Times comments:

 

“Having weapons of war on the streets is the whole point of the 2nd Amendment. The amendment wasn’t drafted to ensure that Americans could hunt. It wasn’t drafted so that Americans could protect themselves, although the natural right to defend one’s life was never as compromised as it is in the modern gun control era.

 

They weren’t out to confiscate hunting rifles, ‘fer squirrels and sech,’ either. They intended to confiscate a store of arms that would outfit the average colonist with weapons roughly equivalent to the average British infantryman.

 

That’s why the 2nd Amendment was written, to ensure that the government’s army would never have superior firepower to the people.”

 

Yes, the Second Amendment protects all weapons, even so-called “weapons of war.” Again, this is not controversial – it is simply what the founders gave us to preserve our free society.

 

“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.” – Second Amendment.

 

What has happened to America? Political Correctness – which is quite incorrect – is costing us our freedoms. Bad utopian ideas that suggest society can abolish violence, aggression, and death by simply removing guns is an argument even child wouldn’t believe – yet so many go along with this liberal nonsense and are willing to toss their and their neighbors’ rights away!

 

It’s time to fight the liberal, anti-gun propaganda and demand Congress to defend, not destroy, our right to bear arms!

 

Take Action and DEMAND CONGRESS to OPPOSE any and all attempts to DISARM AMERICANS through federal gun-control! Congress must FIGHT any piece of legislation or executive order that would dismantle the Second Amendment! Blast Faxes Now!

About Us

 

It’s hard to say when Conservative Action Alerts officially began – Initially, Conservative Action Alerts (CAA) was limited to email alone – it was collection of conservative, grassroots activists who wanted to know how they could best take political action. The group formed out of frustration with Washington’s elect and their failed, unconstitutional policies.

 

Before we developed our blast faxes, we organized phone rallies – perhaps we could call them “blast calls” – that have actually shut down the switchboards in Washington.  We have also organized and supported live political rallies and have assisted a number of conservative causes.

 

Over time, we made more and more connections – not only to those which we wished to keep accountable on the Hill – but to other conservative groups with the similar goals.

 

We welcome meaningful connections and have enjoyed our substantial growth over the years.  We want to continue to connect the grassroots and our elected officials and empower them to fight for fiscal sanity and workable, constitutional solutions in Washington. We do this through education and action.

 

Today, we still hold true to the principles of READ THE REST

 

Biden: 19 ways to bypass Congress


Obama-gun-measures- with kids present 1-16-13

I heard a clip on Fox News of President Barack Hussein Obama relating a conversation (I am uncertain if it was in person or by mail) with a kid relating to gun control. I also saw four children sitting while the President addressed publically his concept of gun control.

 

Paraphrasing from memory the President said this kid asked something like, “I know you (meaning BHO) have to wait for Congress to enact laws, but can you do something about guns?”

 

Keep in mind this is just a paraphrase. The point though is BHO is using children to justify controlling citizens’ use of guns against the Second Amendment specific Right to Bear Arms.

 

With that in mind check out this email from Matthew Staver of the Liberty Counsel reporting on BHO intentions about guns and the Second Amendment.

Biden: 19 ways to bypass Congress

Sent by Liberty Counsel

 

According to published reports, President Obama’s “gun control” measures will include 19 Executive Orders (EOs), as recommended by Vice President Biden’s task force, that he says are within his power to execute.  Already, at least one irate Congressman has threatened to start impeachment procedures if the President follows through with his gun control agenda without regard to the legislative process.

 

Our constitutional rights are being dismantled before our eyes as the Obama axis of power rolls roughshod over the rule of law in America.  I am calling on ALL patriots to join Liberty Counsel in our “I Second the First” campaign to protect our Constitution!

 

Please see my very important update below – Mat.

 

 

John,

 

President Obama must truly believe that the legislative process is too much of a nuisance and just too bothersome to be useful.

 

You know the process I mean…the one mandated in our Constitution as established by the Founders – the process at the heart of the rule of law in our nation.

 

Perhaps the President thinks it just takes too long to establish laws lawfully. Or, maybe he thinks the Constitution is too cumbersome and his Executive Orders are a more efficient and modern alternative way to “get things done.” 

 

More likely, he is fully aware that his proposals would never pass through the lawful legislative process.  Someone on his imperial staff may have noticed that we pesky citizens can sometimes thwart the President’s best Leftist ideas before they have a chance trample all over the People’s liberties! 

 

Judging from his actions, it is even possible the President believes that the checks and balances defined by the Constitution were just fine for a young nation in the 18th Century, but that it has been necessary for the Executive Branch’s prerogatives to “evolve” to have the decisiveness required in the 21st Century.

 

Whatever the President’s thoughts, they are clearly not worthy of the Oath of Office he will renew next Monday!  That oath, laid out in Article I, Section 1 of the Constitution, is simple and to the point:

 

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability,  preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

 

John, I’ll leave it to you decide if Barack Obama is fulfilling his solemn oath by undermining and circumventing the Constitution.

 

++A lawless administration in action.

 

The reality of how the Obama administration intends to operate during the President’s second term has dominated the news cycles for several days now.  President Obama, on the recommendation of Vice President Biden, is considering enacting as many as 19 Executive Orders on gun control. 

 

This is Barack Obama’s style of leadership.  Thomas Jefferson, a major contributor to the checks and balances enshrined in the Constitution, called it “elective despotism.”  It is an overarching abuse of power. 

 

Barack Obama’s 19 executive power grabs on “gun control” (the number as of today, anyway – there could be a lot more coming) are likely just the beginning of this administration’s attempt to trample on the Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms.

 

Here’s Liberty Counsel’s resolute position on this issue: We must “stick to our guns” and resist this tyranny! 

 

The very purpose of the Second Amendment was to allow citizens to bear arms to protect their hard-won freedom and defend themselves from future tyrants.  Yet today, we seem to have forgotten that the first battle of the American Revolution erupted when the tyrant King George’s forces marched to disarm the colonists by seizing an important powder magazine and armory! 

 

It is now clear that the Obama administration fully intends to shake off all restraint in pursuing its dangerous, “progressive” agenda – even when it infringes on Americans’ right to bear arms, exercise their religious liberties, or hold sacred their rights of conscience.

 

That’s why Liberty Counsel launched our powerful “I Second the First” campaign to tell our elected officials…

 

“We the people” demand that the federal government return to the rule of law as established by the United States Constitution!

 

We will stand together and protect our Constitution and its precious First and Second Amendments, the very heart of every American’s Bill of Rights, against radical attacks!

 

If you haven’t done so already, please click here now to join many tens of thousands of Liberty Counsel patriots in signing this powerful petition:

++Congressman takes Obama’s power grab very seriously

 

Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX) has threatened to file articles of impeachment against President Obama if he institutes gun control measures through Executive Orders.

 

In a statement, Representative Stockman wrote…

 

“I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment.”

 

Steve Stockman should be joined by hundreds of his fellow Congressmen! The way in which the Obama administration is operating mocks the balance of power as set out in the Constitution!

 

John, we simply cannot allow our constitutionally protected rights to be dismantled by a tyrannical president with no regard for the rule of law or the checks and balances of power built into our Constitution!

 

If you haven’t already done so, please click here now to add your name to this important petition:

Bear Arms - Founding Fathers vs Dictator Socialists

Justin O. Smith provides an excellent essay on upholding the Original Intent of the Second Amendment in the face of Leftists making the attempt to circumvent the Second Amendment.

As cold as it may seem to some in light of the aftermath of the murders of twenty beautiful little children at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut… and I was shaken and my heart was torn along with all America… the facts still show that Our Second Amendment right is sacrosanct, it protects all of our other rights and responsible, sane gun owners have prevented many more crimes and deaths than the number of robberies and murders committed by armed uncaring, sometimes unhinged and mentally impaired, criminal and insane thugs. Unfortunately, Obama and the Democratic Party do not feel the same and never miss taking advantage of a crisis, and these political opportunists did not wait even 24 hours before deciding to once again attempt to infringe upon the right of each and every American to “keep and bear arms.”

Our Second Amendment states: “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.”

How different things might have ended in Newtown if only an armed citizen, an armed teacher or teachers and an armed Student Resource Officer had been nearby on that terrible day. People still may have died, but at least the chances would have been better that the assailant would be the only one dying, rather than twenty innocent and precious children.

Banning semiautomatic rifles just because they look like military weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines will not prevent every future horrific act of violence or eliminate evil from our society. In 1927 an insane former school superintendent killed children in North Carolina by detonating an ammonium-nitrate bomb inside their school. Criminals will always find ways to acquire weapons and use them to commit acts of violence.

Vice-President Joe Biden’s gun control commission is on track to offer proposals to the White House and Congress for new gun control laws and regulations shortly before this piece makes print. With his usual gall, temerity and arrogance, Obama stated that if Congress does not act in a timely fashion on this issue, he will enact gun controls by fiat and executive order. Nowhere is there any authority given to the U.S. President to countermand or modify any amendment to Our U.S. Constitution. Some on the Left, such as NY Mayor Bloomberg, are even counseling Obama to regulate guns through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, which once again, not only bypasses Congress as the Legislative Branch of government but also violates the U.S. Constitution.

No clause in the U.S. Constitution can be interpreted to give Congress, the President, any of the States’ legislatures or the District of Columbia a power to disarm the people or to control guns to the point that many now aspire. This flagitious attempt to abrogate Our Second Amendment Right… God given… is occurring in plain sight through incremental actions and under a general pretense in blind pursuit of inordinate power. This is what men such as Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and John Locke had in mind when they gave the American people the Second Amendment in order to prevent such abuse of power, preserve the rest of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, restrain the federal government and keep America and Americans Free… And in his ‘Commentaries on the Constitution’, Joseph Story, the first U.S. Chief Justice, considered the right to keep and bear arms as “the palladium of liberties of the republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers…”, which deters tyranny and enables the people to  overthrow their government should it prove necessary!

In the ‘Federal Gazette’ June 18, 1789, Tench Coxe wrote: “As civil rulers…may attempt to tyrannize…and…might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the next article (2nd Amend) in their right to keep and bear arms.” No writer of that era disputed or contradicted Coxe’s analysis that the Second Amendment protected the people’s right to keep and bear their private arms.

“Swords and every other terrible implement of the soldier are the birth-right of an American… The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people,” wrote Alexander Hamilton in Federalist Paper #29. Hamilton, like many Americans today, did not view the right to keep and bear arms as limited to only active militia members or the National Guard.

Former Tennessee National Guard commander Richard A. Hamblen was closer to the Founding Fathers’ intent than the Supreme Court ruling in the United States v Miller-1939, which provided most of the rationale for all gun control laws since then. As Hamblen answered charges of possessing nine unregistered machine guns in 2009 (6th Circuit Court of Appeals), he stated, “There are no qualifiers on the Second Amendment. There are qualifiers on the Fourth (also the Fifth), so if the Founders had intended to restrict the right to keep and bear arms, they knew how to do it.” Under the Second Amendment each and every single one of us are well within our rights if we wish to carry Mr. Ronnie Barrett’s world renown .50 caliber automatic rifle down Broad St in Murfreesboro, TN.

Debra Maggart failed to retain her seat in the Tennessee House of Representatives after blocking a bill allowing people to keep guns locked in their cars in parking lots; and, while fairly recent Supreme Court rulings, District of Columbia v Heller-2008 and McDonald v Chicago-2010, upheld the Second Amendment as an individual right rather than only a collective militia right, they have failed to address the Framers’ Original Intent to allow all Americans to carry their arms in an unrestricted environment. Regardless of this truth, most states require a “fee” (registration or background) in order to obtain a “license” (concealed carry license) before keeping and bearing a firearm; a federal and/or state “tax” (firearms/ammunition sales “tax”) is always levied at the time of a firearm transaction: A state cannot impose a license, tax or fee on a Constitutionally protected right, Murdock v Pennsylvania-1942, and requiring licensing or registration of any Constitutional right is itself unConstitutional, Follett v Town of McCormick SC-1944. Any citizen’s license to openly carry any handgun or rifle in public is the U.S. Constitution!

As the debate on gun control continues, it will be interesting to hear the Left-Progressive Democrats’ response, as they attempt to reconcile their desire to take our guns with the Darling of the Left and Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan’s 2010 statement that the individual’s right to bear arms has “binding precedent” in the Supreme Court and “is settled law”. And, as late as December 22, 1012 even Obama mouthed the words of political expediency, “Look, like the majority of Americans, I believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms,” but that is not what his record shows, nor is it how the Left has misinterpreted this amendment for a long time.

As an American citizen, I repudiate the Progressive Democrats’ view on the Second Amendment and any attempt to ban semiautomatic weapons that have perfectly legitimate uses, under the guise of conducing (sic) our safety. One does not become something other than American in order to solve American problems, especially once one understands the uniqueness of our free institutions and the freedoms found in America… unknown in any other land. And this is all the more reason to resist any erosion of our individual rights. When our Founding Fathers forged a land “conceived in Liberty”, they did so by “watering the Tree of Liberty with the blood of Tyrants” with musket and rifle. They reacted to attempts to dissolve their free institutions and to keep them from establishing a free nation as a nation of armed men. And… when they sought to record forever a guarantee of their rights, they devoted one full amendment out of ten to nothing but the protection of their right to keep and bear arms against government interference. All Americans should give proper recognition and respect for this right most valued by Free Men!

“Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves?” -Tench Coxe (Pennsylvania Gazette Feb 20 1788)

Assault on the Second Amendment

‘I Will Not Comply’

 

By Mark Alexander

January 10, 2013

The Patriot Post

 

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.” –Second Amendment to the United States Constitution

 

PUBLISHER’S NOTE: Patriots, I call on you to pledge: “We, the People, affirm that we will support and defend Liberty as ‘endowed by our Creator,’ enshrined in our Constitution and empowered by its Second Amendment, against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Sign the 2A pledge!

 

Though tens of millions of American Patriots have already said it, the time has come for one of us to go to the mountaintop and shout it so the whole world can hear it.

 

I hereby make this public declaration: In keeping with the oath I have taken in the service of my country, I will “support and defend” Liberty as “endowed by our Creator” and enshrined in our Constitution, “against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Accordingly, I will NOT comply with any defensive weapons ban instituted by executive order, legislative action or judicial diktat, which violates the innate human right to defend self and Liberty, as empowered by “the right of the People to keep and bear arms.”

 

What does this mean?

 

I will neither register with, nor surrender to the government, any weapon in my possession. I further declare that I am not in possession of weapon, weapon component or ammunition that has not been lawfully acquired for lawful purposes, including defense of self and family, home and property, and most importantly, defense of Liberty in accordance with the Second Amendment.

 

I have spoken with my family and our Patriot Team about the potential consequences of this public declaration, both for our families and for our company. They fully understand the implications of my very public declaration of civil disobedience in defense of Liberty and Rule of Law. They understand that I have and will abide, first and foremost, by my oath to support and defend our Constitution — the very oath that Barack Obama and his NeoCom cadres have solemnly sworn, but stand in abject violation of same.

 

Since publishing the first issue of The Patriot Post more than 16 years ago, I have made clear that one constitutional prohibition on the central government trumps all others, and that is the proscription against federal infringement of “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms.”

 

Indeed, Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story wrote, in his eminent “Commentaries on the Constitution,” “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”

 

Story was James Madison’s appointee to the High Court, and Madison himself wrote in Federalist No. 46, “The ultimate authority … resides in the people alone. … The advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition.”

 

Just after Obama’s re-election, I warned that he would attempt to render neutral the only substantive obstacle between Liberty and his avowed political agenda of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America” — the Second Amendment.

 

I noted that, per their standard political playbook, the socialists and their Leftmedia promoters would wait on some tragic murder spree, and, in keeping with Obama’s game plan to “never let a serious crisis go to waste,” use that event as fodder to seize guns.

 

A month after writing those words, a mentally deranged sociopath used a firearm to kill children and adults in a Connecticut elementary school. Before the bodies of murdered children had even been removed from Sandy Hook Elementary, Obama was, shamefully, stacking their coffins to use as a soapbox for his latest and greatest assault on the Second Amendment — a renewed effort to not only ban the future sale of many defensive weapons, but register them in order to eventually confiscate them.

 

Obama has framed this debate as a contest between “public safety” and the NRA — those who “cling to guns or religion” — and insists that the Second Amendment was instituted to protect “hunting and sport shooting.” He has called for a so-called “assault weapons” ban — I note “so-called” because it would more accurately be described as a “defensive weapons” because such arms are purchased, first and foremost, for defense not assault.

 

Obama claims, “We’re a nation that believes in the Second Amendment, and I believe in the Second Amendment. We’ve got a long tradition of hunting…” If by “hunting” he means hunting down those who offend Liberty, then he is correct.

 

Some Leftist governors and legislators have already adopted Obama’s “hunting” misinformation memo. New York’s Andrew Cuomo proposed “the toughest assault weapons ban in the nation” this week, asserting, “We respect hunters and sportsmen. This is not taking away peoples’ guns. I own a gun. I own a Remington shotgun. I’ve hunted. I’ve shot. That’s not what this is about. It’s about ending the unnecessary risk of high-capacity assault rifles. No one hunts with an assault rifle! No one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer!”

 

If, by “risk of high-capacity assault rifles,” he means risk that they might be used for their intended purpose — to defend Liberty against the tyranny of socialist politicos and those who do their bidding — then I understand his concern.

 

The fact is, these weapons, which Obama and his cadres want to eradicate, account for only a tiny fraction of homicides in the U.S. Obama and Biden know that — which is why they have reframed their gun ban rhetoric around saving a few lives rather than many: “As the president said, if your actions result in only saving one life, they’re worth taking,” said Biden.

 

According to the FBI’s public safety statistics, almost 10 times as many people are murdered annually with knives, hammers and bare hands than are murdered with the type of weapon used in the Connecticut attack. Furthermore, from the time the Senate first banned so-called “assault weapons” in 1994, through the expiration of that ban in 2004 and to the present day, the number of such weapons held by the people has increased by 2.5 million, while murders have dropped by almost 50 percent. In other words, more guns equate to less crime. But Obama is not one to let hard facts interfere with his sacred socialist agenda.

 

So, why all the focus on so-called “assault weapons” — what is the Left’s real agenda? (That question was rhetorical.)

 

Patriots, this contest is most assuredly not between public safety and the NRA, but between Leftists and Essential Liberty.

 

Benjamin Franklin spoke timeless words to this contest: “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” In the case of those who would give up Essential Liberty for nothing more than the perception of a little temporary safety with more gun prohibitions, they will, ultimately, lose both.

 

In addition to Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s renewed “comprehensive” ban on a long list of defensive weapons, which she plans to reintroduce in two weeks, Obama appointed Joe Biden to be his executive branch lightning rod for this subterfuge.

 

Three weeks ago, Attorney General Eric Holder, who once suggested “we should really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way,” implied that Obama might use an executive order to undermine the Second Amendment. This week, Joe Biden confirmed that, saying, “The president is going to act. There are executive orders, there’s executive action that can be taken. We haven’t decided what that is yet. But we’re compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required. It’s critically important that we act.”

 

On that note, enough is enough.

 

Liberty is “endowed by our Creator,” not determined by executive decree or congressional legislation or judicial diktat. Liberty is an innate human right. It is a gift from God, not from politicians.

 

I have, herein, publicly declared that I will not comply with any executive order, legislative action or judicial diktat, which violates our Constitution, or the innate human right to defend self and Liberty. I know that there are tens of millions of Patriots who are, likewise, committed. As our Founders affirmed in the last line of the document codifying their rejection of tyranny: “For the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”

 

Fellow Patriots, I can handle the consequences of my very public declaration of intent to reject Obama’s assault on the Second Amendment. I am not asking you to make the same public commitment, though I know most of you would step up to the line.

 

However, I am asking you to join me in your pledge to affirm: “We, the People, affirm that we will support and defend Liberty as “endowed by our Creator,” enshrined in our Constitution and empowered by its Second Amendment, against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

 

Please make that affirmation today and encourage others to do the same.

 

Sign the 2A pledge!

Protect Life, Liberty and Property from the Left


Careful What Wish For - BHO toon

John R. Houk

© January 10, 2013

 

I do not own a gun however I am not pro-gun control. I am a gun rights kind-of-guy along the lines of the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights.

 

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.

 

Leftists like to point out the part that says, “A well regulated militia”. This is as if militia equals a Federal government administered military. The next part brings greater context: “being necessary to the security of a free state”. The implication is that citizens of a sovereign State in the USA can ban together to aid in protecting their State.

 

The Revolutionary War was fought largely by a volunteer army to throw off the oppression of an unjust British government. The British chased that Blue Coat American army all over the place. In the mean time the British deprived Americans of their Private Property as well as confiscating weapons so they could not be used against the British army.

 

The Right to Bear Arms is the right of the “people”. Thus this excludes government control of civilian weapons because those civilian citizens have the right to protect their property from an oppressive government (whether foreign or domestic) or crime.

 

President Barack Hussein Obama is about to use the excuse of crazy people perpetuating massacres as a reason to limit the kinds of arms private citizens can own. Just like everything else this President has down to move the USA slowly to transform into a Socialist society like Europe, this President will eventually confiscate American arms just like the European nations have deprived their citizens to own fire arms.

 

This President is about to take a shot at the Second Amendment by attempting the Presidential power of the Executive Order to begin to take away the gun rights of American citizens to protect themselves from criminal acts  as well as from foreign and corrupted domestic governments.

 

Americans – We the People – need to stand against the intentions to track and disarm citizens depriving of the right to bear arms to protect Life, Liberty and Family.

 

Ann Coulter’s recent article is what started me on the path of indignant thinking concerning our government’s attempt to assault the Constitution.

Doing the research the N.Y. Times won’t do

Ann Coulter helps out Old Gray Lady with digging up actual facts on gun control

 

By Ann Coulter

January 9, 2013

WND

 

In Sunday’s New York Times, Elisabeth Rosenthal claimed, as the title of her article put it, “More Guns = More Killing.” She based this on evidence that would never be permitted in any other context at the Times: 1) anecdotal observations; and 2) bald assertions of an activist, blandly repeated with absolutely no independent fact-checking by the Times.

 

There is an academic, peer-reviewed, long-term study of the effect of various public policies on public, multiple shootings in all 50 states over a 20-year period performed by renowned economists at the University of Chicago and Yale, William Landes and John Lott. It concluded that the only policy to reduce the incidence of, and casualties from, mass shootings are concealed-carry laws. The Times will never mention this study.

 

Instead, Rosenthal’s column proclaimed that armed guards do not reduce crime because: “I recently visited some Latin American countries … where guards with guns grace every office lobby, storefront, ATM, restaurant and gas station. It has not made those countries safer or saner.”

 

So there you have it: The cock crowed, then the sun came up. Therefore, the cock’s crowing caused the sun to come up. Rosenthal went to Harvard Medical School.

 

Here’s a tip: High-crime areas are often bristling with bulletproof glass, heavy-duty locks, gated windows and armed guards. The bulletproof glass doesn’t cause the crime; it’s a response to crime. On Rosenthal’s logic, hospitals kill people because more people die in hospitals than outside of them.

 

(In any event, the Lott-Landes study didn’t recommend armed guards, but armed citizens.)

 

Rosenthal also produces a demonstrably false statistic about Australia’s gun laws, as if it’s a fact that has been carefully vetted by the Newspaper of Record, throwing in the true source only at the tail-end of the paragraph:

 

“‘After a gruesome mass murder in 1996 provoked public outrage, Australia enacted stricter gun laws, including a 28-day waiting period before purchase and a ban on semiautomatic weapons. … Since, rates of both homicide and suicide have dropped 50 percent …,’ said Ms. Peters, who lobbied for the legislation.”

 

“Ms. Peters” is Rebecca Peters, a George Soros-funded, Australian anti-gun activist so extreme that she had to resign from the International Action Network on Small Arms so as not to discredit the U.N.-recognized organization – which isn’t easy to further discredit.

 

Could the Times’ public editor weigh in on whether unsubstantiated quotes from radical activists are now considered full and complete evidence at the Times?

 

It would be as if the Times headlined an article, “Abortion Increases Risk of Breast Cancer” with the sole support being a quote from Operation Rescue’s Randall Terry. (Except Terry would have evidence.)

 

Whether or not the homicide rate went up or down in Australia as a result of strict gun-control laws imposed in 1997 is a fact that could have been checked by Times researchers. But they didn’t, because facts wouldn’t have given them the answer they wanted.

 

Needless to say, the effect of Australia’s gun ban has been extensively researched by Australian academics. As numerous studies have shown: After the gun ban, gun homicides in Australia did not decline any more than they were expected to without a gun ban.

 

Thus, for example, according to the Australian Institute of Criminology, the homicide rate has been in steady decline from 1969 to the present, with only one marked uptick in 1998-99 – right after the gun ban was enacted.

 

The showstopper for anti-gun activists like Ms. Rosenthal and Ms. Peters is the fact that suicides by firearm seemed to decrease more than expected after the 1997 gun ban.

 

But so did suicides by other means. Something other than the gun ban must have caused people to stop guzzling poison and jumping off bridges. (Some speculate that it’s the availability of anti-depressants like Prozac.)

 

Curiously – and not mentioned by Rosenthal – the number of accidental firearms deaths skyrocketed after Australia’s 1997 gun ban, although the law included stringent gun training requirements.

 

It turns out, until the coroner has certified a death as a “suicide,” it’s classified as “unintentional.” So either mandatory gun training has led to more accidents, or a lot of suicides are ending up in the “accident” column.

 

Most pinheadedly, especially for a graduate of the Harvard Medical School, Rosenthal says: “Before (the gun ban), Australia had averaged one mass shooting a year. (Since then,) there have been no mass killings.”

 

Mass murder is a rare enough crime that any statistician will tell you discerning trends is impossible. In this country, the FBI doesn’t even track mass murder as a specific crime category.

 

After Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood” killers slaughtered the entire Clutter family in Holcomb, Kan., the murder rate in that quiet farming town went up 400 percent in a single year! Was it Holcomb’s big showing at the 4-H club competition that year?

 

Totally unbeknownst to Elisabeth Rosenthal, Australian academics have already examined the mass murder rate by firearm by comparing Australia to a control country: New Zealand. (Do they teach “control groups” at Harvard?)

 

New Zealand is strikingly similar to Australia. Both are isolated island nations, demographically and socioeconomically similar. Their mass murder rate before Australia’s gun ban was nearly identical: From 1980 to 1996, Australia’s mass murder rate was 0.0042 incidents per 100,000 people and New Zealand’s was 0.0050 incidents per 100,000 people.

 

The principal difference is that, post-1997, New Zealand remained armed to the teeth – including with guns that were suddenly banned in Australia.

 

While it’s true that Australia has had no more mass shootings since its gun ban, neither has New Zealand, despite continuing to be massively armed.

 

The only thing Australia’s strict gun-control laws has clearly accomplished is increasing the amount of violent crime committed with guns immediately after the ban took effect. Of course, Times reporters don’t have to worry about violent muggings, rapes and robberies because they live in doorman buildings.

 

For those who can’t afford fancy doorman buildings, bad journalism kills.

Where is Obama’s Executive Orders Taking America?


Count BHO & Lady Liberty

 

The beginning of this Executive Order sounds in order. Then you get to Section 201. Section 201 sounds like something aligned to Agenda 21. Even the sections following 201 may have the semblance of National Interests and National Defense in mind, if Section 201 is the foundation for the rest of the Executive Order, then there is a Constitutional issue that the Office of President has exceeded its authority in setting policy that might intrude on Property Rights if misused according to the letter of the EO Obama has implemented. In which case this is scary stuff.

 

The essay below is actually an edited version of three emails sent from Tony Newbill ranging from 3/17/12 through 3/21/12.

Obama Executive Order: Peacetime Martial Law! – http://theintelhub.com/2012/03/18/obama-executive-order-peacetime-martial-law/

Note: We are NOT calling for any sort of violent revolution. Violence is what the New World Order wants and will enable them to immediately crush any opposition. We need to be 100% non violent in everything we do. Congress is already moving forward with impeachment proceedings. Any sort of violence now would be harmful for freedom and liberty and should be avoided.

Also, yes there are parts within this executive order that have been in other orders but that does NOT change the fact that there are different parts in this particular executive order that have never been put on paper as well as the fact that this is an UPDATE to a full scale takeover.

The Intel Hub – Daily News and Opinion
http://theintelhub.com

In a nutshell, it’s the blueprint for Peacetime Martial Law and it gives the president the power to take just about anything deemed necessary for “National Defense”, whatever they decide that is.

I hear these guys talk about the USA being cut-off from future trade supply, and they don’t understand why, But what they are not considering is that the Loss of the Dollar as World Trade Currency at this time with Our manufacturing base gone and no way to retool it fast enough to counter a Loss from world suppliers who reject the dollar, this will lead to a Breakdown in supply in the USA at a rate that will not be manageable under the current free market system. So Nationalization and martial law rationing of the current supply will be implemented.

 

EXECUTIVE ORDER

NATIONAL DEFENSE RESOURCES PREPAREDNESS

 

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended (50 U.S.C. App. 2061 et seq.), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States, it is hereby ordered as follows:

 

PART I  –  PURPOSE, POLICY, AND IMPLEMENTATION

 

Section 101.  Purpose.  This order delegates authorities and addresses national defense resource policies and programs under the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended (the “Act”).

 

Sec. 102.  Policy.  The United States must have an industrial and technological base capable of meeting national defense requirements and capable of contributing to the technological superiority of its national defense equipment in peacetime and in times of national emergency.  The domestic industrial and technological base is the foundation for national defense preparedness.  The authorities provided in the Act shall be used to strengthen this base and to ensure it is capable of responding to the national defense needs of the United States.

 

Sec. 103.  General Functions.  Executive departments and agencies (agencies) responsible for plans and programs relating to national defense (as defined in section 801(j) of this order), or for resources and services needed to support such plans and programs, shall:

 

(a)  identify requirements for the full spectrum of emergencies, including essential military and civilian demand;

 

(b)  assess on an ongoing basis the capability of the domestic industrial and technological base to satisfy requirements in peacetime and times of national emergency, specifically evaluating the availability of the most critical resource and Oh yeah, THERE IS MORE TO READ

 

 

Obama did [this] with the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that he keeps inheriting [i.e. keeps coming up annually in a budget] from Congress, he and Bush did this for the last 11 years:

 

http://tinyurl.com/cnbf3km  

 

President Obama today notified Congress that he is extending the U.S. national state of emergency for one more year, in accordance with his duties as chief executive. President George W. Bush placed the United States in a state of emergency on September 14, 2001, three days after the September 11 attacks. A national state of emergency cannot continue for more than two years without being renewed by the President.

 

This action is not apparently related to the current credible terrorist threats announced last night against New York City and Washington, D.C., rather, is a statement on the overall threat level.

 

 

Many are unaware that during a national state of emergency, some civil rights are curtailed.

 

 

In addition, many provisions of statutory law are contingent on a state of national emergency, as many as 500 by one count. (9/11: Obama Extends U.S. National State Of Emergency One More Year; by David Badash, 9/9/11; Read in ENTIRETY)

 

Where do we go from here????

 

Is the NEW World Order all coming together Perfectly as Planned?

 

Is the NEW World Order all coming together Perfectly as Planned? With the latest Executive Order released on 3/16/12 Lots of Speculation can be discovered in what the future holds.

 

President Obama signs Executive Order allowing for control over all US resources

 

http://tinyurl.com/8ympuk8

 

On March 16th, President Obama signed a new Executive Order which expands upon a prior order issued in 1950 for Disaster Preparedness, and gives the office of the President complete control over all the resources in the United States in times of war or emergency.

 

The National Defense Resources Preparedness order gives the Executive Branch the power to control and allocate energy, production, transportation, food, and even water resources by decree under the auspices of national defense and national security.  The order is not limited to wartime implementation, as one of the order’s functions includes the command and control of resources in peacetime determinations.

 

 

Additionally, each cabinet under the Executive Branch has been given specific powers when the order is executed, and include the absolute control over food, water, and other resource distributions. (By Kenneth Schortgen Jr; Examiner, 3/17/12 Read in Entirety)

As far as the food supply goes, Monsanto shown here in this link as the originating source of all seed related food supply:

 

http://personalliberty.com/2012/03/19/agricultural-terrorism/?eiid  

 

Monsanto should be named an enemy of the State. It’s definitely an enemy of the people. Instead, the company has essentially become another branch of government.

 

Monsanto is engaged in government-sponsored agricultural terrorism. It’s government-sponsored because there is a revolving door between the company, the Food and Drug Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency and firms that lobby Congress on Monsanto’s behalf. Dow, Bayer, other chemical companies and Big Agriculture are Monsanto’s co-conspirators in agricultural terrorism.

 

In addition to contaminating our food supply with pesticides, hormones and genetic modifications, water supplies are being contaminated as well — even for those who live in the city far away from farmland. And anyone trying to grow crops uncontaminated by Monsanto’s genetically engineered (GE) frankenseeds can be slapped with a lawsuit if the prevailing winds or pollinating insects cause pollen from Monsanto-patented crops to mingle with non-Monsanto GE crops.

 

The Union of Concerned Scientists recently listed eight ways Monsanto fails at being a good steward of food and moves over to food and environmental terrorism: (Agricultural Terrorism; by Bob Livingston, Personal Liberty Digest, 3/19/12 Read in Entirety)

 

This is indirectly represented in that Resource control Executive Order nationalizing all the farms in the USA:

Executive Order — Establishing a White House Council on Strong Cities, Strong Communities [March 15, 2012]

 

EXECUTIVE ORDER

ESTABLISHING A WHITE HOUSE COUNCIL ON STRONG CITIES, STRONG COMMUNITIES

 

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to forge a partnership with local communities to provide them with comprehensive technical assistance to use and compete for Federal resources more effectively and efficiently, which will enable them to develop and implement economic strategies to become more competitive, sustainable, and inclusive, it is hereby ordered as follows:

 

Section 1Policy.  Cities, towns, and regions across our Nation continue to face difficult economic challenges.  Enhancing current Federal assistance is helping to lift communities out of distress.  To allow the Federal Government to better partner with these local communities to build local capacity to address economic issues, and to support comprehensive planning and regional collaboration, my Administration established the Strong Cities, Strong Communities (SC2) pilot initiative.  By partnering with cities and regions to augment their vision for stability and economic growth, the SC2 was designed to help communities strengthen their capacity to create jobs and more competitive business climates, and implement locally driven community and regional planning approaches that lead to sustained economic growth, as well as ensure that Federal assistance is more efficiently provided and used.

 

This order improves the way the Federal Government engages with and supports local communities by better aligning resources and coordinating efforts across executive departments and agencies (agencies) so that communities across the country have access to comprehensive, localized technical assistance and planning resources to develop and implement their economic vision and strategies.

This Executive order too will be the conduit between the share cropper system that’s coming and the Statism once the dollar is rejected as world trade currency. This is a staged event by the globalists, a behind the scenes worked out plot by them all while they appear in the public eye as Opposition governments. It’s all a shame, and while they play the shame of conflict between nations lots of mayhem created de-population as well as consolidation of Liberty Giving Individual Human Rights into the collective for the Public’s Safety in the eye of destabilization. This is all in the sense that this will keep a Breakdown in civility from breaking out.

Why is the Pentagon Buying One Billion Dollars of Helicopters from Terrorist Enabler Russia?

 

Russia built the nuke plants in Iran. They are selling weapons to Sudan and Syria. AK-47’s are killing US Soldiers all over the world and so we must ask: Why is the Pentagon buying One Billion Dollars in helicopters from them?

 

Can you say “Sleeping with the enemy”?

 

http://tinyurl.com/7ql73jn

 

WASHINGTON — US senators are urging the Pentagon to cancel a contract with a Russian company approaching $1 billion to buy helicopters for Afghanistan, voicing outrage over Moscow’s arming of Syria.

 

“US taxpayers should not be put in a position where they are indirectly subsidizing the mass murder of Syrian civilians,” 17 senators across party lines wrote Monday in a letter to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.

 

The United States plans to buy 21 Mi-17 helicopters for the Afghan military from Russia’s Rosoboronexport by 2016. The contract totals $375 million by 2016, with an option to buy $550 million worth more, according to the letter.

 

Russia has refused to stop arms shipments to Syria and has offered diplomatic support to President Bashar al-Assad as he puts down a year-long revolt that activists say has killed more than 8,500 people, mostly civilians.

 

The senators voiced alarm at reports that Rosoboronexport has shipped arms to Syria and that Syrian forces used Russian weapons in opposition stronghold Homs.

 

Activists recently said the throats of 47 women and children were slit in a massacre in Homs, following a month-long bombardment of the rebellious Baba Amr neighborhood where 700 people were said to have died.

Oh How Telling it is Our Gas prices are being connected to Russia’s Plan!!!
Why Does Obama Want High Oil Prices? Ask His Boss Putin:

 

http://tinyurl.com/cm2caoo

 

MOSCOW — In American presidential politics, high oil prices are a problem. For Vladimir V. Putin’s new presidential term in Russia, they will be a necessity — crucial to fulfilling his campaign promises to lift government spending by billions of dollars a year.

 

But doing that without busting the Kremlin’s budget would require oil to reach and sustain a price it has never yet achieved — $150 a barrel, according to one estimate by Citigroup. No wonder economists who specialize in Russia are skeptical. (On Friday, Russia’s Ural Blend export-grade oil was trading at $120 on the global spot market.)

 

“It’s very hard to overestimate how vulnerable the Russian economy is to external pressures” from the oil price, Sergei Guriev, the rector of the New Economic School in Moscow, said in a telephone interview. “That vulnerability is huge, which is why Russia must be very vigilant. The spending is a risk.”

 

The promised spending is also ambitious. Mr. Putin has laid out a program of raising wages for doctors and teachers, padding retirement checks for everyone and refurbishing Russia’s military arsenal.

 

 

“The concern is simple,” Kingsmill Bond, the chief strategist at Citigroup in Russia, said in a telephone interview. “If the oil price that Russia requires to balance its budget is higher, the systemic risks that the market faces are also higher.”

 

The bank estimated that Mr. Putin’s promises of higher wages and pensions, not counting the military outlays, add up to additional spending equal to 1.5 percent of Russia’s gross domestic product. That comes on top of an earlier pledge to spend an additional 3 percent of gross domestic product a year re-arming the military.

 

In all, the new commitments would add up to about $98 billion a year, Citigroup estimates.

 

“Putin made large spending commitments,” the Fitch rating agency said in a statement released the day after the election.

 

“The current high price of oil cushions Russia’s public finances,” Fitch said. “But in the absence of fiscal tightening that significantly cuts the non-oil and gas fiscal deficit, a severe and sustained drop in the oil price would have a damaging impact on the Russian economy and public finances and would likely lead to a downgrade” of the nation’s credit rating.

Huang indicated that Bo said many times that he commanded at least two army troops, and in the event that Xi Jinping succeeded Hu Jintao, Bo would order troops into Beijing to take Xi down.

 

Huang said also Bo established special organizations to conduct secret investigations and collect evidence of corruption involving relatives of Wen Jiabao and Xi Jinping in order to discredit them.

 

 

Huang also indicated that Bo had repeatedly said Wen Jiabao was an idiot and not at all capable to be the Premier, and that Hu Jintao was just a person with average ability. China’s hope, Bo said, lies in Chongqing and in him. Bo even promised Huang that he would make him the Premier of China in the future.

 

Zhang Tianliang, an Epoch Times political commentator, said Huang’s alleged remarks are highly credible, since his revelations are consistent with information disclosed by a U.S. official to Bill Gertz of the Washington Free Beacon.

 

Xia Xiaoqiang, another China commentator, told the Chinese Epoch Times, [the information on Boxun] clearly indicates that Zhou Yongkang is Bo’s backstage supporter, and it verifies Bill Gertz’s report about Zhou and Bo’s conspiracy to remove Xi Jinping.

 

While attending a plenary meeting of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) deputies at the Fifth Session of the 11th National People’s Congress in Beijing on March 12, Hu Jintao called for the PLA and the armed police to pay more attention to “safeguarding social stability” and stressed that “the military must abide by strict political and organizational disciplines,” according to a report by state-run media Xinhua.
