Gun Control

2nd Amendment 1

Gun Laws … Because Criminals follow the law … Right?

Updated 07/12/2015

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

About 450 school children were shot with over 60 fatalities in Chicago, Illinois and they hit the 500 gun related homicide mark in 2012. This has dropped a few percentage points (in some categories, not all) by 2015, but not of any real significance.

This itself is a horrible travesty that we as Americans should be ashamed of. But what really makes this noteworthy is the fact that Chicago has some of the most numerous, staunch and restrictive gun laws in the country! Now please remember that very significant point as we continue.

Standing in stark contrast I present Kennesaw, Georgia which boasts the least restrictive gun laws in the country, going as far as to make it mandatory for each household to own and maintain a gun, as well as ammunition.

When this ordinance was passed by a unanimous city council vote in 1982, expectations were for the city to turn into a free for all zone where handling disagreements with ruthless shoot outs was common.

This expectation never materialized. In fact, for over 33 years since the ban, not a single resident of Kennesaw has been involved in a fatal shooting – as a victim, attacker or defender!

Why are the highest incidences of gun violence always in the realm of the most restrictive and numerous gun laws? Could it be because criminals, who by their very nature don’t respect of follow the laws, see an unarmed public as easy prey?

Could it be that the citizens of Kennesaw, Georgia are aware of the following fact … there are …

women-defense

For all of you who would push back stating “You are comparing apples and oranges” … Please look at the facts again … Over thirty three years with NO gun related deaths, but EVERYBODY has a gun VS how many deaths in just one year in Chicago (never mind the massive total over 33 years) with the most restrictive gun laws in the country. This does not even take into account all of the other violent crimes committed in Chicago with guns.

Yea tell me there is no significance here … !!!

Now I will be the first to state the the environment of Chicago stands in stark contrast to Kennesaw, but even with this contrast taken into account, the conclusions that can be drawn scream volumes about the futility and myriad of incorrect assumptions (or blatant lies) that accompany restrictive gun control legislation.

We would assume that our leaders are not idiots or mentally deficient, and can figure this out as easily as we can, so this begs the question …

Why do they push this agenda of disarming the American population so vehemently?

Do some research and you will find a great deal of information to support each side of this discussion, but conspicuously missing are comparisons like this, and many could be made to varying degrees. WHY, because it would blow holes in the gun grabbers argument, so it is poison, as are the murder statistics in other cities like Chicago where gun control is highly prevalent and an EPIC FAIL!

You will hear very little to nothing like this from the Main Stream Media, but you will here it from a patriotic veteran! Please watch and understand …

So what is the TRUTH about gun control and confiscation?

Does it make us safer? Is giving up your Second Amendment right a step to a more peaceful law abiding society (as we are being told)? Can, or will, the government protect you from those who DON’T care about or follow the laws? Well this is certainly NOT the case, as gun control advocates would have us believe!

You need more convincing?

Lets take a serious look at a nation caught in the throws of this controversy … and the repercussions on the average citizen most affected by these insane laws …

The WHY of the Second Amendment

Restrictive gun laws serve only those who wish to disarm Americans. Any unarmed population is an entity that can easily be controlled and subjugated! Every tyrannical government who has perpetrated genocide on its own people has first sought to take their guns!

The absolute truth is that our founding fathers were aware of the possibility of tyranny from our own government, and in the Second Amendment sought to give us a tool, a mechanism to prevent this … can we keep it, or will we go the way of Germany, Russia, Red China, Cuba or many of the other countries that gave up their guns for a promise from their leaders of protection and safety …

Only to find out too late it was their treasonous leaders they needed the protection from !!!

George-Washington

My parting shot …

Urgent-466

 

by 

Not to be outdone by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in calling for civilian disarmament, the United Nations is taking advantage of the Charleston shootings to join the chorus of confiscators.

In a statement issued on June 19 by the United Nations Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent (yes, that actually exists), committee chairwoman Mireille Fanon Mendes-France demanded that “urgent measures must be taken to prevent gun violence.� Making a point of distinguishing this crime for its effect on “the security of Afro-Americans,� the UN group sent their “heartfelt condolences to the people of the United States of America.�

If the United Nations has its way, there will much more to mourn about in the United States of America. As part of the global effort to grant monopoly control of weapons of all sizes to UN-approved “state actors,� the Arms Trade Treaty mandates the forcible disarmament of all others.

The scheme was endorsed in the “name of the people of the United States� by Secretary of State John Kerry on September 25, 2013.

“I am very pleased to have signed this treaty here today. I signed it because President Obama knows that from decades of efforts that at any time that we work with — cooperatively to address the illicit trade in conventional weapons, we make the world a safer place. And this treaty is a significant step in that effort,� Kerry said at the signing ceremony.

Promptly, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon thanked Kerry and Obama for their complicity in consolidating UN control over weapons and ammunition: “Today, a number of countries signed the Arms Trade Treaty, pushing the total number of signatures to more than half of all Member States.”

The secretary-general, as the depository of the treaty, welcomes every signature to this important pact. At the same time, it is of particular significance that the largest arms exporting country in the world, the United States, is now also among those countries who have committed themselves to a global regulation of the arms trade. He believes this will contribute to efforts to reduce insecurity and suffering for people on all continents. He calls upon other countries to follow suit.

Since the date of the treaty’s signing by Kerry, a number of senators have warned President Obama not to try to enforce the terms of the agreement by use of his infamous “pen and phone.â€?

In 2013, Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, sent the president a letter reminding him that:

As you know, Article II, Section 2 of the United States Constitution requires the United States Senate to provide its advice and consent before a treaty becomes binding under United States law. The Senate has not yet provided its advice and consent, and may not provide such consent. As a result, the Executive Branch is not authorized to take any steps to implement the treaty.

President Obama knows this and he also knows that in March of that year, 53 senators voted “to uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.�

Americans know something, too. They know that this administration has never failed to use every murderous act of armed violence as a pretext for tyranny. From Newtown to the Navy Yard to the latest atrocity committed at a church in Charleston, President Obama has issued scores of executive orders directly violating the Constitution’s explicit prohibition on the infringement of the right to keep and bear arms.

In a statement made to The Blaze, Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina pointed to this predilection on the part of the president and bolstered her position, saying that “South Carolina has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation.�

As reported by The Blaze, “South Carolina is one of five states that have an outright ban on open carry firearms.� Adding, “South Carolina’s concealed carry law requires permit applicants to undergo a background check, submitting two sets of fingerprints, and take a state-approved class on gun safety before passing a written test and a live firing range test.�

Regardless of the rigorous background checks to which one must submit in South Carolina before being permitted by the government to purchase a gun, the question remains: Why should any government possess the power to disarm its citizens? Do I have the power to disarm my neighbor if I believe him to be “dangerous?� Certainly not. If I tried to go over and take his weapon I’d likely be arrested for trespass and assault. Where, then, does government — that is nothing more than the collective expression of the people’s natural right of self-defense — get the power to make legal for them what would be illegal for an individual?

While the UN’s Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent may be correct in calling the barbarous act committed at the Emanuel African Methodist Church a “racist crime motivated by prejudice,� nothing in the words or executive orders of President Obama would have prevented it from happening.

The same goes for the Arms Trade Treaty. The secretary-general, the secretary of state, and every presidential candidate can claim that they want to talk about additional gun regulations out of consideration for the safety of innocent people, but what they really intend to do is take liberty from innocent people and leave those people defenseless to do anything about it.

Arguably, the Arms Trade Treaty would become the law of the United States if the Senate were to ratify the treaty.

While that is the process that the Constitution establishes for the implementation of treaties, fundamental principles of construction and constitutional law dictate that no treaty that violates the Constitution can become the supreme law of the land.

In the case of the UN’s Arms Trade Treaty, there is no doubt that regardless of presidential signatures or congressional consent, this treaty cannot pass constitutional muster and therefore will never be the valid law of the land.

Unless, of course, Americans once again acquiesce to President Obama’s assumption of illegal authority and relinquish their rights and weapons regardless of the reasons they should not do so.

This nightmare scenario took a giant leap toward reality on Thursday, June 18 when 218 members of Congress voted to grant the president “trade promotion authority (TPA),� the so-called “fast track.�

With this new power, the president is free to unilaterally issue international executive orders that are binding on the United States, so long as those orders concern trade.

Is there any question whether President Obama will use this new power over “trade� to implement the provisions of the UN’s Arms Trade Treaty? Somewhere, perhaps, a teleprompter is being loaded with a speech mourning the death of so many innocent men and women and promising to “heal� the country by making it more difficult for people to “own, buy, sell, trade, or transfer� (the language from the ATT) firearms.

There is not a person of sound mind who doesn’t deplore and denounce crimes such as that committed in Charleston. Senseless brutality leaves us all scarred and diminishes our collective virtue.

Wise men, however, would also recognize that statements such as that issued by the United Nations Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent demanding that “urgent measures� be taken to reduce gun violence will — as with all similar statements made since the establishment of the modern state — have no effect on violence.

It will, however, leave Americans unable to defend themselves against the most violent armed force ever created: government.

hitler youth movement

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges.

There is presently a massive conspiracy designed to separate you from your children and give the government complete control over your children. To put it simply, Human, Health and Services (HHS) and their state level emissary, Children Protective Services (CPS) are engaged in a conspiracy which will culminate in (1) the Agenda 21 designed breakdown of the family; (2) the eradication of any semblance of parental authority over children; and, (3) unbridled and unfettered access to seizing children from the home in unlimited quantities for whatever nefarious purposes which might dictate the volume of child seizures.

The Plot Is International & Begins with the UN

This program emanates from a partnership between various United Nations organizations and ICF, acting on behalf of HHS, CPS and Obamacare (i.e. The Affordable Health Care Act). The evidence in this article, along with the included links, will demonstrate that when Obamacare is fully operational, our families, specifically our children will be living in a Hitler Youth Movement hellish nightmare in which the state owns and can seize your children.

After reviewing HHS, CPS and UN documents. What is being presently reported in the alternative media is merely the tip of the iceberg with regard to HHS’ intentions toward the ultimate outcome of the children in this country. After reviewing the documents, there is no doubt that Obama is representing international interests which will seek to remove as many children as possible from the homes of their parents in the spirit of the Hitler Youth Movement.

But first let me quickly review the recent revelations of the HHS/CPS/Obamacare intention to conduct what I have dubbed as “home invasion interventions.�

Obamacare Home Invasions and Interventions

According to a previously unreported Obamacare regulation, that has managed to escape “scrutiny� from the mainstream media, millions of American families will be targeted for home invasion by the forces of the Federal government in the name of preventing parental neglect resulting in disabilities in their children. And the Fourth Amendment be damned, as of this past January 1, 2014, Federal officials may enter your home without a warrant in order to “intervene� for the purpose of saving “high risk� children.

Obamacare’s Definition of High Risk

The exposure of the extreme and intrusive nature of Obamacare through home invasion visits is finally seeing the light of day in the alternative media. However, this exposure is grossly understated. As a starting point, I will briefly review what is making the rounds in the alternative media. According to Human Health Services, your family is eligible for this Hitler style for “intervention� in the following situations:

1. Families where mom is not yet 21.

2. Families where someone is a tobacco user.

3. Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities.

4. Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States.

5. Although this is not being widely reported, homeschoolers and their families will be targeted for “interventions� as will be families who object to having their children take vaccines.

There is no question that all of the above categories, warrants a home invasion followed by “remediation.� The visits are not being conducted by HHS officials as has been reported in several publications. The home invasion visits are being conducted by CPS on behalf of HHS.

HHS has designed a detailed 110 page policy manual which focuses on the criteria constituting child neglect. This policy manual which is the guide created by HHS for CPS’ home intervention visits makes the above criteria, presently being reported in the alternative media, look tame by comparison.

HHS, CPS and the Criminalization of Parenthood

In the 110 page HHS/CPS manual, the variables which comprise child neglect, worthy of government intervention is frightening beyond any words I can find to express their undisguised intentions. This entire document which will serve as the field manual by CPS in support of Obamacare undermines parental authority to a level that is beyond belief.

"We are from HHS and we are here to help you."

How many of you were ever grounded by your parents and not permitted to play outside with your friends? This is now illegal under the HHS/CPS policy manual. They label the treatment as neglect by isolation. There are no time frames set forth which constitutes isolation and it is left to the field representative. This obviously erodes parental discipline.

If your child is judged to be underachieving in school, this is referred to as educational neglect and is worthy of governmental intervention. Further, if your child is absent for five days in any one month from school, the same allegation would be made against the parent.

If your child has ADD or ADHD, you could be accused of neglect because the document details how this can be somehow caused by poor nutrition, although the variables associated with the cause are not specified.

The document goes out of its way to specify that poverty and neglect are not inextricably linked. Then the document goes out of its way to link poverty with child neglect. Read between the lines America. As we already are aware, many poor children who go missing from scandals such as Jerry Sandusky’s Second Mile Foundation, the infamous Franklin Scandal and last year’s CPS scandal with the 78 missing wards of the state in Oklahoma, frequently end up being put into child sex trafficking rings operated and funded by such notables as DynCorps and HSBC bank.

Of course, no Obama inspired program would be complete without an attack upon the Second Amendment. Obamacare is no exception as one of the criteria for child neglect are parents who are also gun owners.

The presence of alcohol in the home is a trigger for an allegation of neglect and subsequent “intervention.� Of course, alcoholic parents can present a clear and present danger to a child’s well-being. However, in the policy manual the conditions for concern over alcohol do not detail the amount and percentage of the family resources involved necessary to obtain alcohol. In other words, one can of beer in the home can be considered to constitute child neglect by the Obamacare CPS fieldworker.

If your child has engages in any type of illicit or criminal behavior, your family is at risk. Raise your hands if you ever smoked pot before the age of 18, or drank as a teen, or engaged in any kind of sexual activity before the age of 18, ever stayed out past curfew, or ever shoplifted? IF your children ever engages in these and a multitude of other transgressions, you are in danger of losing your children. This also means that if your child is ever involved in a fight in school or is assigned detention, the school will be required to report the behavior to the HHS/CPS and you can expect to have a “home invasion intervention� session with your friendly Obamacare CPS fieldworker.

If you are ever late picking up your child from daycare or from school aftercare, you will now be reported to CPS.

If you have ever been depressed or have been treated for any mental disorder (e.g. PTSD, anxiety, etc.), you are at risk for losing your children.

Even illegal immigrant families are not immune from this insanity. Children are judged by the field worker to not be fully acculturated, do not properly speak the language, exhibits signs of being homesick and is judged to have not formed an unspecified number of friends and formed a cohesive social network, allegations of neglect can be made.

I would invite the reader to spend some time reviewing the document which will be serving as the policy manual for the forced home inspections. Please note that when the reader gets beyond the flowery language and professed concern for children, that the language is written so broadly that virtually any human condition, any family circumstance or child’s behavior can be interpreted as child neglect. There is literally no end to the tyranny that awaits the art of parenting in the present day.

The important thing to note is the use of language by this manual. Parents who are deemed by an Obamacare CPS field worker, operating under the HHS flag, to be neglectful towards their children are considered to have created “disabilities� within their children. As the reader will soon discover, the use of the term “disabilities� is key to understanding how far this administration is willing to go to seize children for some nefarious purpose.

Sadly, this is still only the beginning. There is far more to be concerned about beginning with who is ultimately responsible for these outrages.

Meet the Creators of the State Sponsored Child Kidnapping Rings

The primary author for this insane manual for HHS/CPS and their designed home invasion interventions is Diane DePanfilis, Ph.D., M.S.W. She is the Associate Dean for. Research and an Associate Professor of Social Work at the University of Maryland. More importantly she is a co-editor of the Handbook on Child Protection Practice. In other words, DePanfills has been a major player in the unconstitutional practices we see in CPS in all 50 states. As if this is not concerning enough, all of the other contributing authors have their professional origins and affiliations with the same organization.

Lindsay Ritter Taylor from Caliber, an ICF International Company

Matthew Shuman, M.S.W, A consultant with Caliber, an ICF International Company

Jean Strohl, A consultant with Caliber, an ICF International Company,

Jeannie Newman, M.S.W, M.I.B.S., A consultant with Caliber, an ICF International Company

It was at this point, I smelled a rat. We have the primary author being a CPS author designed to teach their field operatives on the methods of how to abuse parents and undermine parental authority. And all of the contributing authors come from the exact same corporation, ICF. At this point, it is prudent to ask the question, who is ICF?

ICF Is the Biggest Player That You Have Never Heard Of

ICF International partners with government and commercial clients to deliver consulting services and technology solutions in climate change, energy, environment, transportation, social programs, defense, and homeland security markets. In my mind, this established ICF as a major player in the introduction and implementation of the globalist agenda by designing matching Federal programs. And as it turned out they are a major player in Obamacare through their subsidiary acquisition, Caliber Associates.

Caliber is an “established leader in providing research, consulting, and innovation in human services and human resource issues.� ICF acquired Caliber in 2005 in order “to serve HHS, the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the U.S. Department of Education.� Caliber Associates and their four contributing authors to the HHS/CPS field manual, which will be used to enforce child welfare regulations, was the undeniable link to Obamacare through this field manual. But as I discovered, the rabbit hole went even deeper.

After I found the co-authors of the HHS/CPS policy manual which will guide these forced home inspections, I smelled the distinct odor of the United Nations and Agenda 21 and sure enough, this was exactly what I found.

The United Nations and Obamacare

At times, I feel that I have the globalist playbook and I am able to often anticipate their next move. Please allow me to briefly illustrate how the globalists have operated in another area, education, and then draw the parallel to how the UN is deeply involved in Obamacare.

The Common Core Curriculum, which is sweeping the nation’s education system, was the product of “Education for All.� Education for All comes from the United Nations education arm, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Common Core went from UNESCO to the National Governors Association who in turn farmed out the development of the details to various NGO’s which in turn sent the standards to each state for implementation. This is the standard model that the globalists follow when implementing a controversial program and Obamacare follows a similar pattern as did Common Core.

There is no doubt that the provisions of allegedly protecting children in Obamacare, originated with the United Nations

Why do they want our kids?

In the United Nations document entitled, Human Rights, Persons with Disabilities, ICF and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Training toolkit), implementation for programs designed to help people, children in particular, with disabilities, came from the World Health Organization (WHO) [Page 36], UNESCO [Page 37], the International Labour Organization (ILO) [Page 36] and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)[Page 38]. As one can see from the title, ICF and the UN have partnered to protect people/children with disabilities.

Conclusion

Please remember that earlier in the article, I made the point that the HHS/CPS field manual referred to neglected children as children who have disabilities. It is quite apparent that any of the conditions listed in the HHS/CPS manual will produce children who have disabilities. Under this guise, I can draw no other conclusion than Obamacare is ultimately state sponsored child slavery.

Under Obamacare, virtually every aspect of parenting is criminalized. Any child can be considered to have a disability for which the state is the only legitimate treatment source. When Obama was first running for President in 2008, he promised to build a civilian security force that “was just as strong, just as well-funded as our military.� And when one combines this conspiracy with Obama’s Executive Order 13603 which calls for a mandatory civilian conscription to complement a coming military draft, it is clear that this lunatic is planning to enslave a large segment of the population and he will obtain many of his conscripts from Obamacare. And many of you who are familiar with Agenda 21 and their expressed views toward parental rights and the rights of children, do not need me to make connect the dots, you already have done so.

Unfortunately, there are no reliable statistics which will tell the American public how many of its children have been abducted under these circumstances because the abduction statistics show up as a CPS intervention. One thing we can be sure of is that your parental rights are gone as you merely the temporary caregiver for the state when it comes to who has authority over your children.

My advice to all parents, don’t answer the door when you see the lady ringing your doorbell.

I cannot see any way out of this dilemma than to resist through the use of force. The Obamacare goons will NOT gain entry into my home while I am still breathing. I predict that HHS/CPS will soon be armed because they will, and should, meet massive resistance from the citizens.

America, we must resist this heinous tyranny with every means at our disposal.

Will you protect your children?

Obama Laugh 1

Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)

REALLY … What the &%#@ has happened to America? There are so many frustrated Americans today and this can be seen clearly in our combined displeasure or outright anger at what we so sadly term our leadership. Congress has one of the most dismal approval ratings in recent history and our president is not too far behind. From the debacle or disaster of Obamacare to the litany of scandals the White House battles daily, we are now a nation sinking into a quagmire of disarray and discontent with no foreseeable end in sight.

Our illustrious leader (Satire) has committed countless acts that would have wrung screams of impeachment from congress, both of the political parties and every liberal, grass roots organization in existence less than a decade ago. But he seems to be made of Teflon with nothing, no matter how heinous, sticking to him. Those who populate congress today are either cowards, under duress, or have given a whole new meaning and depth to  the concept of complicity.

We as a nation are responsible for (directly or indirectly) the deaths of over three million innocents we insanely re-term collateral damage because it sounds less guilty than slaughtered or killed! These aggressive actions have been greatly expanded and exacerbated by our Nobel peace prize winning president across an entire region of the globe. This madness continues daily and the total climbs at an alarming rate! We now have highly trained permanent or special forces in over 160 out of 192 countries on this planet.

Our economy and currency are a travesty soon to render this once great nation to third world economic status. Yet nothing is being accomplished to stem this disaster except more egregious spending, that does nothing to soften the economic sufferings of We The People, but instead adds TRILLIONS more to our national debt, effectively pouring gasoline on a raging fire. Obamacare (contrary to Obama’s lie) will add a minimum of six $TRILLION more (and that is a very conservative estimate) to the national debt, threatening to destroy what little remains of what used to be the most powerful and prosperous middle class this world has ever seen.

So again we have only managed to kick the can of economic disaster a little further down the proverbial road, but with a catastrophic collapse still looming in our not too distant future.

Our once valued and admired freedoms and rights, the reason for untold generations of immigration to America, are now a global joke via such tyranny as the Freedom Act and the NDAA rider, and our world standing is that of a tyrant or world bully! We kid ourselves by using the soft term “the world’s policeâ€? but ask yourself, how do you see the modern police? Please understand this is how the world sees America.

Our Second Amendment rights, so obviously valued in this country are being chipped away at with a concerted effort through unconstitutional laws and tyranny. Knowing full well that a majority of Americans and Congress would not support a UN Gun Control treaty … our illustrious leader sent Kerry to sign the treaty anyway, and you had better believe that WILL have a negative impact on your right to own guns.

We now have Free Speech  Zones, REALLY? Where do you see that in the Constitution? When a government designates when and where you can speak your mind, freedom of speech is DEAD! So in essence your rights, thoughts and wishes be damned.

We are spied on today by so many different government agencies and sub agencies that NOTHING you say or do is private anymore, unless you take mind bending and drastic steps to ensure any level of isolation against these intrusions, but then again these very actions will likely throw the light of suspicion on you making your efforts futile … Correct me if I am wrong, but this sure as hell sounds a lot like the old Soviet Union KGB style tyranny we railed so vehemently against a few short decades ago!

And then there was the Bundy ranch fiasco, another case of a monolithic government overreaching its Constitutional powers to support the corporatist elite. For all who still believe that this president and his puppet masters, so intent on selling America out, that it is not even very well hidden anymore, would back down from boots on the ground freedom loving people … NOT! … So why did they? This begs the explanation that the Bundy fiasco was another smoke screen, a distraction from the real tyranny being perpetrated by the boys in the back room.

You must all understand that to maintain their hold on power, those who would rule (not govern or represent) us can’t just stand by and let We The People set the proverbial precedent by ‘self enforcing’ our rights and liberties through protest or mass action … and get away with it; after all we are only the TRUE governors of this Republic. Those actions, if left unchecked, would serve to embolden MANY more Americans to jump on the bandwagon every time tyranny rears it’s ugly head and erode or remove the fear and compliance this government has worked so hard and for so long to instill in us. Now they can’t have that … can they!

A pretty safe prediction is to watch for another major distraction soon (maybe even a staged or false flag event, or disaster) to shift much of the attention currently focused on the immigration and southern boarder debacle, and a dictator style amnesty for many millions of criminals that they are taking so much heat for … Misdirection, redirection … nothing to see here …

A Conscience

Before you jump at me with comment, “He did not start all this tyranny we suffer today” … I AGREE, but he sure as hell has played the game better and harder than any of his predecessors, bringing the game to a whole new level of reality.

How about the serious increase in the number and scope of nations we are perpetrating hostilities against (that we know of)? I wonder if Mr. Obama has his Nobel Peace Prize in a prominent place for easy viewing in the White House … Could there be anything more undeserved or defamed on this planet? Are the members of the Nobel committee kicking themselves in the butt daily for the shame and ridicule they have brought on themselves and their foundation? Do they cringe every time a report of a new drone strike in any of a dozen countries is released recounting the number of innocent women and children that have been killed?

How about no deficit reducing budget (he campaigned on … twice) to congress in his six plus years, but adding more to the debt than any other president in history in a HUGE fashion?

How about the massive freedom-robbing and power grabbing executive orders and congressional bills he has signed?

How about huge political/diplomatic failures such as Benghazi and Fast and Furious and the IRS scandal?

How about economy-wrecking bills like Obamacare, a bill that is doing more to tear down the middle class in America than any other mechanism in play today? Can you honestly believe the big buck, highly educated economists and writers of this bill did not foresee these implications to working Americans when they where crafting it … REALLY ???

How about the release of some of the most dangerous terrorists in US captivity for the release of an American … who hates America, only to have them return to the fight against America with all that pent up hatred and drive for revenge?

And how about his most obvious and egregious debacle, failing his constitutional mandate to protect the American people by sealing our southern boarder. Congress was never needed to seal the border … to make immigration policy or law yes … BUT NOT to seal the border. One of the prime duties of the Commander In Chief is to protect American sovereign territory from foreign invasion (can you truly call this anything else)! So why hasn’t he?

This is by far not the entire list, these are only the issues and disasters that stand out or got the most attention. I would make a serious wager that what we are not aware of (yet) far outstrips what we are aware of! But even in what we know, there are far too many more issues and disasters to mention here. And all this was on HIS watch, by his hand, and all (in the grande scheme of things) … Intentional !!!

But the most miraculous part of this: it is all being accomplished while managing to keep a large (but shrinking) portion of the population convinced of his true benevolence through the constant shielding and propagandizing of a complicit Mainstream Media who’s job it is to convince the sheeple all is as it has to be!

So when do We The People decide we have had enough, because once they have all our guns and all his jack boots (FEMA, TSA & DHS etc…) are fully armed and in place, do you think they will just go quietly if we ask please? At this point our options appear to be, unite our voices now into a force that cannot be ignored or dismissed, and effect the change we need to rebuild this Republic in the image it was originally intended, OR …

The Truth Of Tyranny: What We Have Already Lost

georgia_guns

By: Zach McAuliffe

According to a recent Pew Research poll, Americans are now saying protecting the rights of citizen’s to own a firearm is more important than the need to control guns.

The research says about 52 percent of those polled are saying they favor protecting the right to own firearms, while 46 percent say they prefer gun control. This is a substantial shift in public opinion from the early 90′s when the public was in favor of gun control, polling at 57 percent, while those who wanted to protect the right to own a firearm were polled at 34 percent.

While both sides of the political spectrum have been arguing over healthcare and immigration among other hot topics, this poll found support for gun rights has increased in both Republicans and Democrats by 6 points, while it also increased by 7 points among Independents.  According to RT, support for gun ownership was up in all demographics except for liberal Democrats and Hispanics, but support for gun rights went down only one or two points in these groups.

African-Americans were also found to be more likely to believe owning a firearm does more to protect a person rather than threaten another.  The support from African-Americans has almost doubled since early 2012 when 29 percent of those polled supported gun rights while the new poll found 54 percent of African-Americans back gun ownership.

An October Gallup poll found similar results, showing only 26 percent of people think handguns should be banned from being sold to the public while 73 percent of people think no such law should be considered.

Research also found homicides related to firearms has fallen from 1993 according to NPR.  At the time, seven homicides per 100,000 people were attributed to gun violence, while in recent years, 3.6 homicides have been attributed to firearms.

Mac Slavo
December 4th, 2014

State by state encroachments of the 2nd Amendment are on the move, and they are marching to beat of the drums of billionaire Michael Bloomberg, the former New York mayor and publishing mogul, and his complex of gun control organizations.

As SHTF previously noted, Bloomberg used the magic of billionaire-backed lobby groups to pass gun control in Washington state…

Gun control initiative 594 got a last minute bump from the tragic but conveniently timed school shooting in Marysville on October 24, driving sympathy and headlines to the issue about a week and a half before the election.

But the real push for I594 was from billionaires, including Michael Bloomberg and Bill Gates, who dropped an overwhelming $10 million to support the gun control initiative, while opponents – including the ‘all-powerful NRA’ – spent only about half a million. Other Microsoft execs pitched in as well.

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg reportedly spent as much as $50 million from his personal funds just on the 2014 elections, backing the Everytown for Gun Safety movement. Bloomberg has heavily backed Moms Demand Action, formed in response to the Sandy Hook shooting, as well as Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which he formed circa 2006.

Flush with tens of millions in commitments from Bloomberg and other wealthy elites, Moms Demand Action promised back in March 2013 to “punish� lawmakers resistant to gun control in 2014 with new money to push for gun legislation – and Washington state is now a prime example of the support for ballot initiatives that money can buy.

However, reports are floating the idea that this is just a test case of future gun control initiatives to come (Nevada may be next for Bloomberg).

…And is now looking to Nevada, Arizona, Maine and several other states beyond:

Fresh off a string of election victories, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun-control group is gearing up for a “significant� legislative push in more than a dozen states to curb gun violence, its leaders say.

First up: Nevada, where election officials could certify this week that the group and its allies have collected enough signatures for a 2016 ballot initiative that would impose stricter background checks on people buying firearms from private sellers and at gun shows. Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety also is weighing similar background-check initiatives in Arizona and Maine.

Bloomberg’s strategy to impose gun control at the state level hinges on the ability to use deep pockets to sway voters at the ballot box and bypass lawmakers altogether:

According to the USA Today, Bloomberg is currently weighing a Washington state-like initiative approach in Arizona and Maine. As one of the most gun-friendly states in the union, Arizona will be a challenge for Bloomberg. And voters in Maine just passed on the chance to put a gun control governor in office, choosing instead to stick with pro-gun, NRA-endorsed Governor Paul LePage.

Part of Bloomberg’s game is going around elected officials—bypassing legislatures and governors. Therefore, he is weighing his options. At the same time, Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety says it could take an active role in pressuring legislatures in up to 20 states.

Playing off the tragedy of the Sandy Hook school shooting and urging piecemeal requirements for “common sense� measures like background checks (tacked on with numerous other stringent requirements), Bloomberg and his billionaires-for-gun-control pals are dismantling 2nd amendment protections one bite at a time.

So much for “shall not be infringed.� Bloomberg, current mayor of Everytown, is just getting started:

“This is a huge amount of movement in two years on an issue where Republicans and Democrats ran for the hills for more than a decade,� said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety. “We’re going to build on the successes of 2014 and do more.�

The National Rifle Association conceded that gun control advocates were outspending its once untouchable lobbying capabilities:

“Their approach is to go into states where it’s easy to pass something and claim national momentum,� NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said of Bloomberg’s group.

“We have $38 billion reasons to take Mike Bloomberg seriously,� he added, referring to estimates to Bloomberg’s net worth. “His money has exponential reach.�

Doesn’t there always seem to be funny business with these alleged school shootings? The latest is the Marysville, Washington active shooter event taking place today.

This post isn’t to discuss the details of the ongoing event, but rather to point out that it appears the Marysville Police were scheduled to run a SWAT training exercise yesterday or perhaps today too. We can’t know for sure because they scraped all references to it from the Internet.

Major props to Lori Price of LegitGov for catching this:

CNN host Brooke Baldwin, covering breaking news of the school shooting in Marysville, Washington, announces that she has a live update regarding the school shooting. Baldwin said she’s been just handed a paper with new information, which she will read on the air. She asks for viewers to, quoting, “bear with her,” as she reads it “cold.” She reads: “Marysville Police will be holding SWAT training today –” Baldwin then interrupts herself, and states, “Oh. This is from yesterday.” Later, the host announces, “initially, students thought this was a fire drill.”

When Googling the SWAT drill in Marysville, the official school district website is the first result:

However, when you click on this link, the announcement has been disappeared and replaced by the following:

October 24, 2014: The Marysville Pilchuck High School is currently in lock down due to an emergency situation. Police and emergency services have responded. The Marysville School District lock down procedures will remain in effect at Pilchuck until further notice from law enforcement. We will continue to forward communication in cooperation with law enforcement.

Students who attend MPHS campus are being relocated to the Shoultes Community Church at the corner of 116th and 51st Street. Buses will take students home from there. Those parents in the area wanting to pick up their child will need to go to the church location and sign out their child out with school administrator or law enforcement.

All after-school activities across the district are canceled today.

We may be dealing with yet another vicious false flag by the authorities to justify gun control and an increased police state. Please add any evidence you can find to the comment section below.

UPDATE 1: There are controversial gun control measures on the ballot in Washington state to be voted on in less than 2 weeks – http://seattle.cbslocal.com/2014/10/10/rival-gun-measures-on-ballot-in-washington/

UPDATE 2: A high school around 65 miles north of Marysville held an “active shooter” exercise involving multiple agencies yesterday as well – http://www.bellinghamherald.com/2014/10/22/3928022/police-drill-to-be-held-thursday.html

Holder-Doctor-Vets-Ask-About-Guns-SC

By: Doug Book

Over the past 2 decades, Republican and Democrat administrations have  joined forces to require the use by physicians and hospitals of  government-certified, inter-operable electronic medical records systems, or  EMRs. These online record-keeping systems will send personal patient information  collected by all participating providers directly to the centralized Office of  the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology, a newly created  government agency whose job is making the medical records of the American people “inter-operable–� that is, instantly accessible to any “qualified� agency or  agent.

For example, if the patient of a New Jersey physician should become the  victim of a medical emergency in Nevada, stored medical information will be  instantly available to a Las Vegas surgeon. Expensive and time-consuming testing  may be unnecessary as the patient’s entire medical history will be a matter of  computer record.

On its face, the advent of EMRs appears to be a boon for patients and doctors  alike. But as with all federally mandated contributions to the greater good, any  advantages associated with EMRs are guaranteed to benefit and serve the DC  bureaucracy and not the American people.

First of all, why should it be necessary to FORCE participation of healthcare  providers in the EMR system by means of financial blackmail? “Doctors who do not  participate by 2015 will be penalized 1 percent of their Medicare payments,  which increases to 3 percent over 3 years.� The state of Massachusetts reports that “…60 percent of doctors could not meet the EMR  mandate and face potential loss of their licenses in 2015.� Quite a weighty  stick to wield against physicians who have dedicated years of their lives and  countless dollars to secure that license to practice medicine.

As for the carrot, doctors who maintain online records will receive “…up to $44,000 for five consecutive years of  Medicare participation, or up to $63,750 over six years for Medicaid  participation.� And as physicians stand to earn some $380,000 over a six year  period, hospitals and other eligible institutions can rake in $12 million or  more.

Of course, any participant expecting payment for services or the privilege of  keeping their license to practice must meet certain EMR “meaningful use  requirements� as set down by the government. And the principle requirement is  the absolute selling out on patient privacy. Many physicians are now accompanied  to the examining room by “scribes� who take down every word spoken by both  doctor and patient, all for the purpose of mandatory EMR input. Doctor/patient  confidentiality will consist of total access to patient records by some 2.2  million individuals and agencies, including, of course, the federal  government.

And how will that intrusive bureaucracy make use of records submitted through  EMR? Patient behavior will be tracked in order to be modified as necessary.  Smokers, for example,  will be “encouraged� to quit or absorb massive  premium increases–at BEST! Patients will be assigned risk scores to determine  whether treatment should be offered or withheld. Why spend vast sums treating a  sky diver or someone unlikely to get well? And patient behavior modification  will be introduced as Michael Bloomberg’s Nanny State mandates and exclusions  will extend throughout the country.

Most importantly, medical treatment will be directed by the state or federal  government. Bureaucrats will inform doctors what level of care may be offered  based upon the patient profile–a profile that may include political party, race,  religion, income level, or even firearm ownership. As with rewards and penalties  based upon EMR usage, doctors will earn bonuses for limiting costly treatments  and be penalized for “unnecessary� charges to Medicare or Medicaid.

“This is the federal government trying to dictate the practice of  medicine…trying to micromanage physicians across the country,� says Heritage  Foundation health policy analyst Chris Jacobs. Of course, solicitous Americans  will accommodate the bureaucracy by dying when directed and without complaint.  What could possibly be more fair?

Robin Shooting

By TLB Contributor: Robin Koerner

Last month I did something I’d done only once before: I went to a range and shot some guns. Lots of guns. All shapes, ages and sizes.

This is a very strange thing to do for a guy born British. Guns feature nowhere in British culture.

Accordingly, I was unsurprised by the reaction of my mother when I called home and told her that I’d had a great time learning about firearms and discovering I wasn’t a bad shot, even with a World War II Enfield. “That’s the last thing I’d ever imagine you’d enjoy doing,” she said to me. She wasn’t being judgmental: It was an expression of genuine surprise.

“That’s because you just can’t imagine why nice or normal people would enjoy guns,” I replied. “Because you don’t know any. No Brits know any.”

Mom thoughtfully agreed.

Many decent people who have no interest in guns simply can’t imagine what it must be like to be someone who is passionate about something whose primary purpose is to kill people. Although the gun debate is waged using words, logic and fact (by both sides, to different ends, of course), the arguments constructed using these three tools are not what brings people to their pro- or anti-gun position. Rather, most people are emotionally or intuitively committed to a position first and deploy these tools retroactively in defense of their position. Despite what we like to think, we form most if not all of our political views this way. Studies show, time and time again, that David Hume was right when he claimed:

[A]s reasoning is not the source, whence either disputant derives his tenets; it is in vain to expect that any logic, which speaks not to the affections, will ever engage him to embrace sounder principles.

What most anti-gun people are really feeling (rather than thinking) is that there has to be something strange about you if you like guns. I mean, why would you get turned on by something whose primary purpose is to kill people? If you do, you can’t be like me. You are sufficiently different that I am suspicious of your worldview, or your motives, or both. You are culturally “other.”

Productive engagement, and the pervasive acceptance of individual rights, involves bridging such cultural gaps. With the gun-rights issue, as with all others, the best way to do so is the same way all forms of cultural segregation (because that is what we are really talking about) have been permanently broken down over time: Get to know, and spend personal time with, those on the other side of the gap.

It works both ways. People who favor more gun regulation are not actually motivated by a desire to take away your liberty. And people who favor robust Second Amendment protections do not have a lower threshold for the acceptance of violence or aggression. You’ll know this when you have them as friends, and having such friends causes the all-or-nothing arguments that make such dramatic claims about the fundamental differences between you and the people on the other side of the issue cease to be credible.

This mistaking of differences of cultural identity for political differences, or the erroneous idea that political differences drive different cultural identities, rather than the other way around, severely hobbles our ability to protect all our liberties and empowers political partisans who have a vested interest in maintaining power by keeping us insolubly divided.

Just as gun owners form a kind of (albeit highly porous) subculture, the LGBT community does so too. Some people who have been brought up in a socially conservative or religious subculture simply can’t imagine being able to do (let alone actually doing) the things that those in another subculture (LGBT) do as a matter of course. Again, if I can’t even imagine your experience or desires, then we are deeply culturally separated. Just as gun-control advocates feel a twinge of disgust, or at least condescension, toward the culture of gun owners, some of our religious friends feel similarly about the LGBT subculture. Of course, “disgust” is a very strong word, and most of us sublimate it deeply, but it captures the sense that the division among our “political” subcultures is more visceral than rational. Reason is applied later to justify in the conscious mind the position that the subconscious makes us emotionally comfortable with.

Now, I have a distinctly conservative streak when it comes to the raising of children, and I have an instinctive respect for any political position that is genuinely motivated by requiring adults to do the best by the children whom they create. I can understand, then, the real discomfort of those who sincerely believe that children benefit from having male and female role models at home, and that society should be very wary of sanctioning anything that does not place the well-being of children above the proclivities of their parents.

However, two of my friends — and two of the kindest and most responsible people I know — happen to be gay partners who adopted a daughter. Phil and Michael are giving their adopted daughter a wonderful life. Their love for her is boundless. The security, values and richness of experience that they are providing her will set her up forever. And the gap between the life that Mia Joy has and the life she would otherwise have had makes the general question “Should gay couples be able to adopt?” sound like something between silly and faintly insulting when applied to this particular, inspiring case.

I am blessed with close gay friends with whom I identify as much as I do with many of my straight friends. So for me the question of gay marriage and adoption, for example, is not so much a political argument that needs logically “deciding”; rather, the very intuition of the existence of some gay “other” on which the very argument depends has disappeared. As that cultural gap is bridged through actual human relationship, the separateness of that “other group,” on which any suspicion I may have of their motivations depends, ceases to exist.

I’ve had many gay friends for many years. And now I am getting some gun-owning friends too. And because they are all good people (they’d not be my friends otherwise, would they?), I see both groups as doing essentially the same thing when they defend their rights: insisting on being allowed to be themselves and defend the validity of the way they experience the world — as long as they harm no one else.

Of course, if you’re reading this and you don’t like guns, you’re thinking, “That’s wrong. Guns harm people.” Not in the hands of my friends, they don’t. And if you’re reading this and you don’t like gays, you’re thinking, “That’s wrong. Gay adoption is bad for the children.” Not by my friends, it isn’t.

If I were going to take a stand against gay adoption, I would have to imagine saying to Phil and Mike, “You should not be allowed to do what you have done for Mia Joy, and I would use the force of law to stop you.” Even if I could make an abstract political argument against gay adoption, I cannot say that to them in good conscience. And if I were going to take a stand against my open-carrying friend Rob, I’d have to imagine saying to him, “You should not be allowed to own that to protect your family — or to protect your country against a tyrannical state, should it ever come to that, and I would use the force of law to stop you.” Even if I could make an abstract political argument against private gun ownership, I could not say that to him in good conscience.

By becoming friends with Phil and Mike, and with Rob, their respective subcultures cease to be alien to me.

The truth is that because I know Rob as a grounded, kind man, I also know that the rest of us are better off when people like him have a few of the guns — rather than their all being in the hands of our political masters. And because I know Phil and Michael as being rather like Rob in those respects, I simply know that the rest of us are better off when people like them have a few of America’s children.

And there’s not a political argument in sight.

You’ll appreciate my delight, then, when, during my day at the range with Rob, he told me that his local organization in defense of the Second Amendment accepted the open offer made by the organizers of his city’s annual Pride event to support them by marching with them. The two groups have now formed an ongoing alliance, reflecting the fact, of course, that they are really doing the same thing: protecting the right of people to do anything they want for people they love as long as they harm no one else.

That’s when you know that you really care about liberty: The excitement of marching in support of someone who wants to protect and celebrate their freedom overcomes your “cultural discomfort” (should you have any) with what they want to do with it.

If we can challenge ourselves by focusing as much on nurturing our human connection with our political opponents by relating to them as people, we’d discover a wonderful paradox: We’d all feel, from our opposed initial positions, increased success in getting our opponents to see the world our way.

How is that possible?

It’s possible because collapsing the subcultural divides in our society through actual human relationship does something bigger and better than resolving our political differences: It dissolves them. It dissolves them because it reveals that much of what we thought were differences of political principle are really rationalizations of the suspicion we feel toward those whose experiences and pleasures we simply cannot imagine sharing.

As in history, so in psychology: Culture precedes politics.

armatix-_22-pistol-2

By: Daniel Jennings

A new technology that could allow authorities and others to literally “turn off� guns by remote control has been patented.

German arms maker Armatix GmbH has filed a patent for an improved smart pistol that can be shut down by a wireless signal.

“Preferably, the apparatus of the invention can be controlled remotely, for example via satellite and can send information to a satellite,� the European patent application for the gun says.

Armatix already makes one smart gun, the iP1 Personalized Pistol, that can only be fired by a person wearing an “Intelligent Watch.� The watch sends out a wireless identification signal that activates a chip in the gun. The new pistol would have that feature and the remote control capacity.

iP1 Could Trigger Smart Gun Law in New Jersey

The iP1 Personalized Pistol could trigger a New Jersey law that would require all handguns sold in that state to be “smart guns.�

Here’s how the iP1’s designer, Ernst Mauch, described the weapon in a Washington Post op-ed piece: “The iP1 Personalized can be synced with our Intelligent Watch, which is worn on the wrist. The authorized user inputs a five-digit personal code into the watch that activates the firearm. Without that code, the gun cannot be fired.�

Mauch believes the iP1 provides an additional level of protection because it cannot be fired without the code if it falls into the hands of the bad guys. If it works as advertised, only the weapon’s owner would be able to fire it. Some gun owners have expressed concern that in a dire situation – say, if someone breaks in your home – it would take far too long to “turn on� the gun.

“In short, the gun is yours alone,� Mauch wrote. “It is personalized.�

Others say the fact that a gun potentially can be disabled by someone else, thousands of miles away, is frightening and even eerie.

Law Would Require Smart Guns

The Washington Post is now demanding that New Jersey start enforcing the law mandating the sale of smart handguns. The Garden State’s smart hand gun law has been on the books since 2002 but it has never been enforced because no smart weapons actually existed.

“If the law (takes effect), you’ll see every model with these features,� Bryan Miller, a gun control advocate who helped get the law passed, told The South Jersey Times.

Gun owners say it should be overturned.

Story continues below video

“It’s a very stupid law that was passed in haste by legislators who didn’t know what they were talking about when they passed it,� gun store owner Bob Viden Sr. said. Viden noted that the legislation has no provision for target practice and weapons that are not used for self-defense.

State Senator Loretta Weinberg (D-Bergen County) told MSNBC that she will introduce legislation designed to overturn the smart gun rule. Weinberg is the majority leader in New Jersey’s state senate.

Gun Sales Lead to Death Threats

The iP1 Personalized has produced some unusual behavior from individuals claiming to be gun rights activists. Gun store owners who announced plans to sell the weapon received death threats from individuals claiming to be gun rights activists The Washington Post reported.

“I thought what I was doing was right,� Maryland gun store owner Andy Raymond said. “I didn’t want my shop burned down.�

Raymond claimed that unidentified individuals threatened to burn down his store and kill his dog after blogs reported he was selling the iP1 Personalized. Raymond said he stayed up all night with a gun to protect his business.

The owner of Edge Armament, Raymond has since decided not to sell the iP1 Personalized, The Postreported. At least one other store, the Oak Tree Gun Club, in Southern California has made a similar decision.

Weinberg sited the threats against the gun store owners as the reason why she wants to get rid of New Jersey’s smart gun law. She hopes her legislation will end the opposition to smart guns.

“I’m willing to do this because eventually these are the kinds of guns people will want to buy,� Weinberg said.

The iP1’s designer claims he supports the Second Amendment and the right to possess weapons for personal defense.

“Respect for this freedom to protect your family as you see fit is a major reason I believe that gun owners in the United States should have the right to purchase personalized firearms using high-tech safety features,� Mauch wrote in The Washington Post.
