Inside source reveals FEMA & DHS preparing for mass graves and martial law near Chicago

March 26, 2009

By: D. H. Williams @ 10:41 PM – EST

 

An Indiana county municipal official in the vicinity of Chicago reveals the contents of his meetings with FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security. The initial requests seem reasonable enough when FEMA asks the county officials to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan to deal with flooding, fires, high winds and tornadoes.

But as the required meetings and calls with FEMA and DHS continue over a two year period their request become more unusual, raising suspicions of county officials

Listen to the audio:

“We want to know every important thing in this county. We want to know where police departments are. Where weapons are stored. Hazardous material. Where can we land a helicopter. Where are the airports. How big a plane can you land at the airport. Where are all the bridges. Where are all the power stations. Where are all the generating stations.Where are all the substations. They literally wanted to know where everything was. I’m sitting there thinking man if there was ever martial law. This kind of information is exactly the kind of stuff they are going to want. We’re just laying it all out for them right there.”

During the legally mandated meetings held with FEMA and DHS different disaster scenarios were reveled to county officials:

  • In late December 2008 municipal officials were invited to Indianapolis for a briefing on the state of Indiana. There were told if industry were to collapse for example GM going bankrupt resulting in mass unemployment a depression would soon follow and municipalities could expect to loose 40% of their funds.
  • Every county in the nation would be required to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan.
  • The county should prepare a plan to vaccinate the entire population within 48 hours and practice the plan several times.
  • FEMA inquired to where mass graves could be placed in the county and would they accept bodies from elsewhere.
  • The sheriff’s department via the state sheriff association was told that no .223 ammunition rounds would be available as the military would be purchasing all stocks.
  • The county was asked to make plans for “hardening” of police and fire stations, putting in hardened bunker type buildings around town.
  • The county was asked to make plans for the possibility of up to 400,000 refugees from Chicago.

Clinton: Mexico Violence Fueled By America’s ‘Insatiable’ Demand For Drugs

March 26, 2009

“Don’t blame the people of this country you little twat-troll. Then why don’t you legalize, (at least), marijuana and it will get us out of this depression that you all created in the first place. All this blaming of the American people… while these politicians fuck us everyday. Thats their schedule for the day… “Well at 9:00 I have to be in the Capital building to fuck over the same people who pay my salary. Then at noon I have to meet with some other fuck-head from fuck-land to figure out how we can squeeze more tax dollars from our mindless public, etc etc.

They are not doing much to help. If you think I’m over reacting then I suggest cleaning the wax out of your ears and taking your blinders off and taking a deep breath and realize that I’m right. Click on the link below to watch the “American Drug War” movie and see what half-man, half-elf Clinton and her criminal cronies in Washington really think about the drug trade.

(And get ready for them to use the gun violence on the Mexican borders for more lame rhetoric on trying to take Americans guns away).”

Mexico Clinton

MATTHEW LEE | March 25, 2009 04:31 PM EST | AP

 

 

MEXICO CITY — Secretary of State HillaryRodham Clinton said Wednesday that America’s “insatiable” demand for illegal drugs and its inability to stop weapons from being smuggled into Mexico are fueling an alarming spike in violence along the U.S.-Mexican border.

Clinton said the United States shares responsibility with Mexico for dealing with the violence and that the Obama administration will work with Mexican authorities to improve security on both sides of the border.

President Barack Obama himself said Tuesday that he wanted the U.S. to do more to prevent guns and cash from illicit drug sales from flowing across the border into Mexico. But Clinton’s remarks appeared more forceful in recognizing the U.S. share of the blame. In the past, particularly under the Bush administration, Mexican official have complained that Washington never acknowledged the extent that the U.S. demand for drugs and weapons smuggling fuels the violence.

“I feel very strongly we have a co-responsibility,” Clinton told reporters accompanying her to Mexico City a day after the Obama administration said it would send more money, technology and manpower to secure the Southwestern frontier and help Mexico battle the cartels.

“Our insatiable demand for illegal drugs fuels the drug trade,” she said. “Our inability to prevent weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border to arm these criminals causes the deaths of police officers, soldiers and civilians.”

Criminals are outgunning law enforcement officials, she said, referring to guns and military-style equipment like night vision goggles and body armor that the cartels are smuggling into Mexico from the United States.

“Clearly, what we have been doing has not worked and it is unfair for our incapacity … to be creating a situation where people are holding the Mexican government and people responsible,” she said. “That’s not right.”

Clinton said she would repeat her acknowledgment as loudly and as often as needed during her two-day visit to Mexico City and the northern city of Monterrey during which she will brief Mexican officials on U.S. plans for the border and counter-narcotics aid to Mexico.

In her discussions, Clinton plans to stress Obama’s commitment and encourage Mexican President Felipe Calderon and his top aides to boost efforts to combat rampant corruption by promoting police and judicial reform, according to senior U.S. officials.

Just hours before she arrived, the Mexican army announced it had captured one of the country’ most-wanted smugglers, a man accused of controlling the flow of drugs through Monterrey for the powerful Beltran-Leyva cartel. Clinton will visit Monterrey on Thursday.

The administration announced Tuesday that it would increase the number of immigrations and customs agents, drug agents and antigun-trafficking agents operating along the border. It will also send more U.S. officials to work inside Mexico.

Those measures fall short of calls from some Southwestern states that troops be deployed to prevent further spillover of the violence, which has surged since Calderon stepped up his government’s battle against the cartels.

Battle Over Gun Rights On Federal Land Continues

An amendment to repeal the National Park Service (NPS) gun ban is headed 
to the floor of the U.S. House on Wednesday, March 25. 

The massive public land bill, which has bounced between the House and 
Senate in recent weeks, has sidestepped the issue of your right to 
self-defense. Several pro-gun representatives tried to amend the bill so 
that it offers real protection of Second Amendment rights, but they were 
prevented by the anti-gun leadership. 

Repeal of the gun ban takes on added urgency after a federal appeals 
court issued an injunction last week to stop changes made by the Bush 
administration to allow concealed carry on NPS land from taking effect. 

When the bill comes to the floor on Wednesday, pro-gun Representatives 
Doc Hastings (R-WA) and Rob Bishop (R-UT) plan to offer an amendment to 
repeal the onerous NPS gun ban. 

First, a procedural vote, known as “Ordering the Previous 
Question,” 
will be voted on. A “no” vote is the pro-gun position on that 
motion. 

If we are successful on that vote, there will be a vote on an amendment 
to repeal the NPS gun ban. Urge your representative to vote IN FAVOR of 
the Hastings-Bishop amendment. 

And tell them not to be fooled by language that was recently added to 
the bill to protect hunting and fishing on certain parts of federal 
land, as if the Founding Fathers pledged their lives, fortunes and 
sacred honor to protect a recreational pastime. 

Please urge you representative to support the Hastings-Bishop amendment, 
protecting your right to carry a firearm for self-defense, hunting or 
any other lawful purpose. 

NPS bureaucrats and federal judges should not be empowered to negate 
self-defense on YOUR land. 

ACTION:  Please immediately use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center 
at http://gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Representative the 
pre-written message below. 

—– Pre-written message —– 

Dear Representative: 

On Wednesday morning, the Omnibus Public Land Act (H.R. 146) will come 
to the floor. 

This bill, which has bounced between the House and Senate in recent 
weeks, has completely sidestepped the issue of my right to self-defense. 

Several pro-gun representatives tried to amend the bill so that it 
offers real protection of Second Amendment rights on National Park 
Service and Fish & Wildlife Service lands, but those efforts were 
defeated. 

Repeal of the NPS gun ban takes on added urgency after a federal appeals 
court issued an injunction last week to stop changes made by the Bush 
administration to allow concealed carry on NPS land from taking effect. 

And please don’t be fooled by language that was recently added to the 
bill to protect hunting and fishing on certain parts of federal land, as 
if the Founding Fathers pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor 
to protect a recreational pastime. 

First, there will be a vote on Ordering the Previous Question. I urge 
you to vote “NO” on that motion, in order to allow for 
consideration of 
an amendment by Reps. Doc Hastings and Rob Bishop. 

The Hastings-Bishop amendment to repeal the NPS gun ban protects my 
right to self-defense on OUR public lands, and I urge you to SUPPORT it. 

Gun Owners of America will inform me of how you vote, and will rate the 
procedural vote and the vote on the amendment in its upcoming 
Congressional rating. 

Sincerely, 

(Your Name)

Paul, Baldwin, Barr Send Letter to Missouri Gov. in Response to MIAC Report

March 25, 2009

 

(Original Story):
Infowars
March 23, 2009

Last week on the Alex Jones Show, former presidential candidate and Baptist minister Chuck Baldwin said he would co-author with former presidential candidate and House member Ron Paul and former federal prosecutor, former member of the United States House of Representatives and presidential candidate Bob Barr a letter ( see PDF) to the Governor of Missouri, Jeremiah Nixon, protesting the Missouri Information Analysis Center’s document designating Baldwin and his co-authors as terrorists.

Baldwin, Paul, and Barr “respectfully demand” the document in question “be immediately removed from any and all websites associated with or maintained by the state of Missouri or any agency thereof, including the MIAC.” In addition, they demand “said document no longer be circulated by the state of Missouri” and the state repudiate its references to Baldwin, Paul, and Barr.

The letter insists action be taken within three days of receipt.

On March 20, Prison Planet reported Missouri Governor Jay Nixon’s defense of the MIAC report. “Getting information, especially public information, out of our fusion center out to local law enforcement agencies is we do every day and we’re going to continue to do,” said Nixon. “Any way they take that information and can analyze what the threat levels are is important to make sure the public stays safe.” ConnectMidMissouri reported. In other words, Nixon will continue to permit MIAC to designate Baldwin, Paul, and Barr as terrorists.

In regard to the content of the MIAC report, see our Police Trained Nationwide That Informed Americans Are Domestic Terrorists, posted on the Infowars and Prison Planet websites on March 13.

After Alex Jones received the MIAC document and it was posted on his websites, the news story went viral and was covered by the Associated Press and other corporate media outlets (Alex Jones, Infowars, and Prison Planet did not receive attribution for breaking the story, however.)

HR 45 May be More Troubling Than the Average Anti-gun Bill

March 23, 2009

 comradeobama

Thomas Jefferson said, “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” Are Obama’s anti-gun beliefs in agreement with the 2nd Amendment?

by Mike Hammond

Those of you who regularly peruse the GOA website know that there are dozens of anti-gun abominations which are introduced as legislation in the Senate and House each Congress.  These include, particularly, national gun licensing and broad gun bans.  

GOA provides a summary of these bills for the benefit of our members and friends.  Most of them are cynically introduced so that the Brady Campaign can raise money by threatening anti-gun measures it could never pass.  

But the first anti-gun bill of the 111th Congress -– Chicago Congressman Bobby Rush’s H.R. 45 –- has caught the attention of many in the Second Amendment community as something we need to be worried about.

This is because of the extremity of the bill:  

* H.R. 45 would require a federal license for all handguns and semiautomatics, including those you currently possess; and

* It would require handgun and semi-auto owners to be thumbprinted at the police station and to sign a certificate that, effectively, the firearm will not be kept in a place where it would be available for the defense of the gun owner’s family.  

Pretty scary, huh?  But, while this despotic nuttiness makes you wonder why a congressman from the Murder Capital of the Midwest would think that it would help to make the residents of New Hampshire, Alaska, and Wyoming comply with his blood-soaked city’s anti-gun laws, there have been other bills which are just as unconstitutional.

Rather, what makes H.R. 45 troubling is its sponsor and its timing.  

Its sponsor is Congressman Bobby Rush –- a scion of the same super-corrupt Chicago political machine that produced disgraced Governor Rod Blagojevich and President Barack Obama.  

And as for its timing, it was introduced during the confirmation of Attorney General nominee Eric Holder — the man who tried exploit the Columbine tragedy in order to pass gun licensing as Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton administration.

And make no mistake about it:  Licensing is only a way-station to discouraging, arresting, or humiliating gun owners and outlawing guns.  Under H.R. 45, for example, the applicant must also make available ALL of his psychiatric records, pass an exam, and pay a fee.  

So… are you a veteran who has ever consulted a psychologist or psychiatrist?  Guess what?  The FBI would soon be examining every confidential statement you have ever made during those consultations.  

Private sales of handguns and semi-autos would be outlawed, and reports to the attorney general of all transactions would be required, even when — as the bill allows — the AG determines that a state licensing system is sufficiently draconian to substitute for the federal license.  

But, you may be thinking, “I’m just a hunter with a deer rifle… surely, none of this is relevant to me”?  

Then you should know that, with virtually no exceptions, ALL firearms transactions (including person-to-person private sales of long guns, hunting rifles, shotguns, etc.) would be subject to the same paperwork hassles that are required when buying from a dealer.

In addition, the bill would make it unlawful in virtually all cases to keep any loaded firearm for self-defense.  A variety of “crimes by omission” (such as failure to report certain things to the government) would be created.  

Criminal penalties of up to ten years and virtually unlimited regulatory and inspection authority would be established.  

Combined with the Ammunition Accountability effort to outlaw ammunition in numerous states, this two-pronged attack would soon make gun ownership a thing of the past.  

Barack Obama was fond of saying during the campaign that he supported the Second Amendment.  And we read of gun buyers who are flocking -– while it is still legal -– to purchase firearms, but who concede that they believed Obama’s assurances and voted for him.

But we may soon see a more horrific, nastier side of Barack Obama… and a capacity to go after his political enemies.  And we have to assume that he will view gun owners as just about the most important of those enemies.

C4L Responds to Missouri Report

March 22, 2009

 

March 17, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Maybe you’ve heard, or maybe not, but the Missouri State Police think you might be a security threat.

Why?  Because you support Ron Paul and the Campaign for Liberty.  Also, because maybe you own guns, oppose abortion or homeschool.

Even, and I’m serious, because you support the U.S. Constitution.

I know, it’s ridiculous…and probably steams you a bit.

But here at Campaign for Liberty we are going to give this foolishness the treatment it deserves.  More on that in a moment.  Let me give you a bit more background.

As you may be aware by now, the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) recently released a report titled, “The Modern Militia Movement” to over one thousand Missouri law enforcement officers.

What is the Missouri Information Analysis Center?  According to its website,

“MIAC is the mechanism to collect incident reports of suspicious activities to be evaluated and analyzed in an effort to identify potential trends or patterns of terrorist or criminal operations within the state of Missouri.  MIAC will also function as a vehicle for two-way communication between federal, state and local law enforcement community within our region.”

The MIAC warned officers that violent militia members are “usually” supporters of presidential candidates like Ron Paul and are also known for opposition to things like the Federal Reserve and the income tax.

The “study” was undoubtably written by some university liberal who knows nothing of the hundreds of thousands of Missourians who share our values.  I can only imagine how many hundreds of thousands of Missouri tax dollars funded this.

Both Ron Paul and Campaign for Liberty champion principles of freedom, peace, and prosperity.  We believe that the Founder’s vision for America can be reclaimed through education and peaceful activism.  It is a common practice of elitist intellectuals and backroom bureaucrats to attempt to crowd everyone into groups and stick labels on them, especially when it involves those who support a Constitutionally-limited government.

Anthony Gregory, editor-in-chief at Campaign for Liberty, has posted an excellent new article on our site concerning government broad-brush fear campaigns.

It is important that we respond in the right way when faced with such a government labeling, and the proper way is to go straight to the top in Missouri.

The way to fight thugs and ignorant people in authority is not to cower or rage, but to proudly proclaim who you are and what you believe.

That’s why I urge you to sign our Citizen’s Petition here today.

Our petition spells out in no uncertain terms who we are and what we believe.  And it reminds those in charge of enforcing Missouri’s laws that we are citizen activists who will not be intimidated nor embarassed into silence.

Simply owning a gun does not make you a threat.  It means you are a free citizen.

Supporting our Constitution does not make you worthy of a watchlist, it makes you a Patriot.

So please, sign our Citizen’s Petition today.  Be sure to stay tuned for more information on how we plan to respond to the MIAC.

Finally, I want to ask you a final favor.  If you can, please join us next week as we gather in St. Louis for the first Campaign for Liberty Regional Conference and show the people of Missouri what Campaign for Liberty truly stands for and represents.

We will be hosting a free event on Friday Night with Ron Paul and Judge Andrew Napolitano that is open to the public, and the conference will be highlighted by grassroots training on Saturday, March 28.

Learning how to properly mobilize in order to implement liberty-based legislation is absolutely critical to our success as a movement, and our Regional Conference will provide you with the tools you need as we move forward.

For more information on our Conference, check out our Regional Conference page.  For special travel and hotel information, click here.

Liberty is never free, and demands vigilance.

I look forward to seeing you in St. Louis for an exciting weekend of celebration and training!

In Liberty,

 

John Tate
President, Campaign for Liberty

P.S. And don’t forget to fill out our Citizen’s Petition, which we will deliver to the Missouri Governor and Attorney General.

The Liberty Restoration Project blog has posted an advisory released last November by the United States Army Reserve. “The United States Army Reserve Command is publishing this Force Protection Advisory to advise all Army Reserve personnel of the planned protests at all Federal Reserve Banks and office locations within the United States on 22 November 2008,” the document reads. “This message provides situational awareness and recommended mitigation measures.”

Click image to see larger version.

According to the Army Reserve, the folks gathered and exercising the First Amendment in response to the Federal Reserve’s loan sharking operation are essentially terrorists.

The Army “established relationships” with local law enforcement and the FBI and encouraged them to “update alert rosters,” according to the document. In 2003, Jim Garamone, writing for the American Forces Press Service, noted that the “Northern Command cooperates with the other unified commands and shares intelligence with them” and also has forged “relationships [that] cut across federal, state and local agencies, and include players from law-enforcement, emergency services, intelligence agencies and the military.”

In 2008, Air Force Gen. Victor E. Renuart Jr., commander of the North American Aerospace Defense Command and NorthCom, told attendees of the National Homeland Defense Foundation symposium in Colorado Springs, Colorado, “that effectively defending the homeland and responding to natural or man-made disasters requires an integrated approach that involves federal, state and local governments, and even international and private organizations,” the latter a reference to InfraGard, the private sector Gestapo with shoot to kill orders issued by the FBI (see The FBI Deputizes Business).

“We believe those relationships will be key to our success,” Air Force Gen. Ralph Eberhart told Garamone.

Northcom and the Army Reserve’s mission apparently also include reporting “all potential protest activities to the Army Reserve Operations Center.” The Army Reserve falls under the Pentagon’s Continuity of Operations program “that ensure[s] the execution of mission-essential functions… during a national security or domestic emergency” (see  Militarizing the US “Homeland”: NORTHCOM’s Tasking).

In addition to Northcom “cooperation” with local law enforcement in regard to entirely legal and peaceful demonstrations, a document sent to Alex Jones earlier this month exposes an effort by Homeland Security to work with law enforcement in Missouri to demonize supporters of Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr. Ron Paul is quite specific in his call for the Federal Reserve to be closed down. Paul told Alex Jones on March 12 that “the people responsible for the economic crisis should not be hailed as saviors and given more power to fix the problem that they created, but arrested and criminally prosecuted,” as Paul Joesph Watson reported for Prison Planet.

2005, NBC obtained a secret 400-page Defense Department document listing more than 1,500 “suspicious incidents” across the country related to peaceful anti-war demonstrations. “The Defense Department document is the first inside look at how the U.S. military has stepped up intelligence collection inside this country since 9/11, which now includes the monitoring of peaceful anti-war and counter-military recruitment groups,” NBC reported.

 

In the wake of the false flag terror attacks on September 11, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld and the Pentagon established the Counterintelligence Field Activity. CIFA illegally conducted broad domestic operations that targeted antiwar and other dissident domestic groups and logged these in the TALON database. After the unit received negative publicity, the Pentagon’s senior intelligence official, James R. Clapper, recommended to Sec. Def. Gates that the counterintelligence field office be dismantled and that some of its operations be placed under the authority of the Defense Intelligence Agency.

As the documents here demonstrate, the Pentagon as of late 2008 was still in the business of gathering intelligence on entirely legal and non-violent political activity and organizations around the country. As the MIAC document reveals, the feds and their state and local “partners” consider groups in opposition to the Federal Reserve a threat. Now the Pentagon as well has targeted this opposition with “situational awareness and recommended mitigation measures.”

If the above documents are indeed legitimate, they reveal how the Pentagon and the Army Reserve are protecting the Federal Reserve against End the Fed and other organizations engaged in constitutionally protected protest against a cartel of international bankers posing as a department of the federal government.

Victory in the House! –The Omnibus Public Lands Act of 2009, S. 22

Victory in the House! 

— But the land bill battle will continue

Wednesday, March 11, 2009 

Thanks to you, a bill expanding gun control on federal land was narrowly 
defeated Wednesday morning, March 11. 

The Omnibus Public Lands Act of 2009, S. 22, would have drastically 
increased the amount of land controlled by the National Park Service, 
thus subjecting such land to the anti-gun regulations of the agency. 

The bill was brought to the floor of the U.S. House on what is known as 
the “suspension calendar.”  This calendar is normally reserved for 
non-controversial bills. As such, any bill being passed under the 
suspension calendar requires a two-thirds majority of those voting. 

In this case, the pro-gun position prevailed by a mere two votes — 
meaning S. 22 is far from being non-controversial. 

Although suspension bills are not normally amended, one change was 
allowed in a secret backroom deal between a few members. 

The amendment, offered by Rep. Jason Altmire (D-PA), was intended to 
alleviate the concerns of gun owners. 

The Altmire amendment sought to protect hunting and recreational 
shooting on federal land, but those steps are completely inadequate to 
address the concerns of millions of gun owners. 

The Second Amendment protects, as the Supreme Court affirmed in D.C. v. 
Heller, an individual right to keep and bear arms.  That right was never 
intended to protect only the shooting sports. 

Under current regulations, firearms possessed for the sole purpose of 
self-defense on land controlled by the National Park Service is 
prohibited unless the person holds a concealed carry permit. 

While millions of law-biding Americans hold CCW permits, many more do 
not.  It is these citizens’ rights that are going unprotected. 

NPS land covers the gamut from busy thoroughfares to remote wilderness 
areas.  These gun free zones are dangerous, in addition to creating a 
patchwork of inconsistent regulations between federal and state land. 

Although we won today, unfortunately the battle is not over. 

The anti-gun leadership will attempt to bring this bill back to the 
floor in a way that requires a simple majority, rather than the 
two-thirds vote they needed Wednesday. 

Several pro-gun congressmen will try to offer an amendment in committee 
to simply allow state and local law to govern firearms possession on NPS 
land.  This type of amendment would put more control at the local level 
and protect the gun rights of all law-abiding Americans. 

What is expected is that the leadership will propose a new 
“rule” that 
blocks any such pro-gun amendments. 

If that happens, the vote on the rule becomes the gun vote. 

House leaders have not indicated when they will attempt to bring the 
bill back to the floor, but it could come up at any time. 

Therefore, your Representative needs to hear from you once again, for 
two reasons. First, the entire House needs to be urged to reject any 
parliamentary trick that excludes language to protect Second Amendment 
rights on federal land.  Next, those who voted against your rights need 
to know of your dissatisfaction, while those who stood up for your 
rights should be thanked.

Emergency Alert! 
— Compromise on massive land bill does not protect Second Amendment 
rights

Gun Owners of America does not sound the “Emergency alarm” 
often — and 
when we do, we mean it. 

Remember the massive land bill, S. 22, that passed out of the Senate 
last month? 

It was expected to pass quickly in the House, but your opposition to an 
expansion of gun control contained in the bill forced it to be pulled 
from the floor. 

GOA has just learned that after some backroom deals, the bill is headed 
to the floor WEDNESDAY MORNING, without any amendments to truly protect 
your Second Amendment rights on National Park Service (NPS) land. 

You have fought the battle over the NPS gun ban for a long time. 

Unlike U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land, 
which allow for state and local law to govern firearms possession, NPS 
land is subject to a complete gun ban for any citizen who does not hold 
a concealed carry permit. 

The bill coming to the floor March 11 greatly expands NPS land, thus 
spreading the agency’s anti-gun regulations into more areas. 

S. 22 is actually a compilation of over 190 bills, many of which were 
never even debated on their own merits. 

Here are just a few examples of land expansions in the bill: 

* Section 5204 of the bill establishes the Washington-Rochambeau Route 
as a Historic Trail.  This dual trail begins in Rhode Island and travels 
650 miles to Yorktown, Virginia.  The trail includes parts of major 
thoroughfares on the east coast such as Interstate 95 and US Route 1, 
meaning the gun ban could effect hundreds of thousands of unsuspecting 
gun owners each day. 

* Section 5301 authorizes the federal government to buy private land 
adjacent to national parks and trails. Such land would be controlled by 
the NPS, and thus be subject to the agency’s anti-gun regulations. 

* Section 7002 makes the birthplace of William Jefferson Clinton a 
National Historic Site.  Perhaps it’s fitting that the legacy of former 
President Clinton, who was responsible for so many anti-Second Amendment 
laws, will include yet another “gun free” zone. 

In all, the bill designates over 2 million acres of wilderness, 
establishes three new national parks, a new national monument, three new 
national conservation areas, and four new national trails. 

In an effort to persuade pro-gun Congressmen to vote for the bill, the 
leadership apparently agreed to one backroom change — an amendment to 
protect hunting and recreational shooting. 

The compromise measure misses the point.  The founding fathers did not, 
in their struggle to secure essential freedoms, craft the Second 
Amendment with the idea that it would protect hunting and recreational 
shooting. 

It is seemingly simple to understand, yet we have to continually remind 
the Congress that the Second Amendment is not about hunting! 

If we have any chance of stopping this bill, you must contact your 
Representative right away. 

The bill is scheduled to come to the floor before noon, Wednesday, March 
11. 

Please don’t let Congress sneak this expansion of gun control through 
the House under the guise that compromise language protects your Second 
Amendment rights.  It doesn’t. 

ACTION: Right now, please use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center 
at http://gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Representative the 
pre-written letter below. 

—– Pre-written letter —– 

Dear Representative, 

On March 11, the House intends to take up S. 22, a massive bill 
containing nearly 200 separate pieces of legislation. 

This bill will greatly expand land controlled by the Nation Park 
Service, thereby expanding the agency’s anti-gun regulations. 

There is compromise language being offered to supposedly protect hunting 
and sport shooting.  That is insufficient, as the Second Amendment is 
NOT about hunting and recreational shooting! 

And while there may be some parts of this bill that you support for our 
state or our district, please do not give such parochial issues priority 
over my Second Amendment rights. 

I urge you, in the strongest possible terms, to vote against this 1,294 
page bill until the leadership allows an amendment that will truly 
protect the right to keep and bear arms. 

Gun Owners of America will rate a vote for this bill as an anti-gun 
vote, and will inform me of your position. 

Sincerely, 

(Your Name)

To my gun owning friends,

All the things you are about to read below are not B.S. They are 100% true. Immediately following and in the attachment is a link to the actual HR bill. For those who do not have Internet access I have copied the bill into a Word document. Lost in the Word document are hyper links, within the bill, that provide definitions and explanations. So, if you have access, go to the actual Bill at the link immediately following my comments.

This is the biggest grab at our gun owning rights in the history of our nation and it’s all being done under the clock of darkness. None of the News Networks are covering it. If we fail to rise up and let Washington know about our unapproval of the Bill, it will become law. Read it for yourself. In a nutshell:

– own a firearm, and not have a license to do so; you’re paying a fine and going to prison for 2 years

– own a firearm with a kid in the house, and not have the gun or ammo in a place where the kid can’t get access to it; you’re paying a fine and going to prison for 10 years (There is no definition of – safe place.)

– buy or sell a firearm, without a license: you’re paying a fine and going to prison for 5 years

Here’s how they define a firearm, so don’t even think “your gun doesn’t meet the definition,” because it’s so broad – it does:

(3) The term “firearm” means

(A) any weapon (including a starter gun) which will or is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive;

(B) the frame or receiver of any such weapon;

(C) any firearm muffler or firearm silencer; or

(D) any destructive device. Such term does not include an antique firearm.

Our US Constitution is very clear on the issue:
Amendment II

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.

If this isn’t “infringement” what is?

And the comments about them coming to your house and inspecting are right on. See sections 402 and 403. You might say; “Well I’m not manufacturing.” Read all of it. You are “storing.” You are “holding.” The right wing has being touting for sometime; “A well regulated militia,” means – an Army, and therefore the citizens don’t have the right to keep and bear.” You can bet they stretch the rubber band on this as well.

The time is now – to write, call or go see your elected Congressmen and Senators. Tomorrow may be too late. And, the most important thing you can do is spread the word and send this to every gun owner you know.

At the top of the attachment, just before the House Bill, I’ve included a section of the US code – which clearly spells out our government’s plan to disarm the people. The entire wording is in the hyper link; at the bottom of the link immediately following.

READ THIS

Forward Subject: Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act Another persons thoughts:

Very Important for you to be aware of a new bill HR 45 introduced into the House.

This is the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009.

We just learned yesterday about this on the Peter Boyles radio program.

Even gun shop owners didn’t know about this because it is flying under the radar.

To find out about this – go to any government Website and type in HR 45 or Google HR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009. You will get all the information.

Basically this would make it illegal to own a firearm – any rifle with a clip or ANY pistol unless:

•It is registered

•You are fingerprinted

•You supply a current Driver’s License

•You supply your Social Security #

•You will submit to a physical & mental evaluation at any time of their choosing

•Each update – change or ownership through private or public sale must be reported and costs $25 – Failure to do so you automatically lose the right to own a firearm and are subject up to a year in jail.

•There is a child provision clause on page 16 section 305 stating a child-access provision. Gun must be locked and inaccessible to any child under 18.

They would have the right to come and inspect that you are storing your gun safely away from accessibility to children and fine is punishable for up to 5 yrs. in prison.

If you think this is a joke – go to the Website and take your pick of many options to read this.. It is long and lengthy. But, more and more people are becoming aware of this. Pass the word along. Any hunters in your family – pass this along.

Peter Boyles is on this and having guests. Listen to him on KHOW 630 a.m. in the morning. He suggests the best way to fight this is to tell all your friends about it and “spring into action”. Also he suggests we all join a pro-gun group like the Colorado Rifle Association, hunting associations, gun clubs and especially the NRA.

This is just a “termite” approach to complete confiscation of guns and disarming of our society to the point we have no defense – chip away a little here and there until the goal is accomplished before anyone realizes it.

This is one to act on whether you own a gun or not.

If you take my gun, only the criminal will have one to use against me. HR 45 only makes me/us less safe. After working with convicts for 26 years I know this bill, if passed, would make them happy and in less danger from their victims.

Senate Repeals D.C. Gun Ban By Large Vote — But the fight in the House is just beginning

Monday, March 2, 2009 

By a resounding vote of 62 to 36 last week, the U.S. Senate has approved 
an amendment, offered by Senator John Ensign of Nevada, to repeal the 
D.C. gun ban. 

Congratulations! 

But the battle is not over. 

This week, the House will take up the D.C. voting legislation.  And 
anti-gun Speaker Nancy Pelosi is angling to impose a “gag 
rule” on the 
House, so that D.C. gets its unconstitutional representative, while 
continuing its draconian anti-gun laws (like microstamping). 

So here’s the deal:  The House will be asked to consider a 
“rule” which 
establishes the time for debate and provides for which amendments may be 
considered — and which may not. 

It is expected that the Pelosi rule will seek to deny the House any vote 
on the D.C. gun ban and thereby strip the repeal of the ban from the 
House bill. 

So what we are asking you to do is to write and/or call your congressman 
and demand that he oppose any rule that strips the D.C. gun ban repeal 
from the D.C. voting bill. 

Just to remind you of how draconian the D.C. gun law is: 

* Following the Supreme Court’s decision in Heller declaring the law to 
be unconstitutional, D.C. made a few cosmetic changes which will, as a 
practical matter, allow it to continue to deny its citizens the right to 
keep and bear arms. 

* Then, the City Council passed a whole series of new anti-gun measures. 
These include a requirement that most guns used for self-defense 
“microstamp” fired casings in two places with a “unique 
serial number.” 

Aside from being ineffectual with respect to stolen guns or crimes where 
the brass has not been left behind, this microstamping provision is 
intended to make guns so expensive that they won’t be available anywhere 
— including your state. 

ACTION:  Write your Representative and urge him or her in the strongest 
terms to oppose any rule which will strip the gun ban repeal from the 
D.C. voting bill. 

You can go to the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at 
http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Representative the 
pre-written e-mail message below. 

You can also call him or her toll-free at 1-877-762-8762. 

—– Prewritten Letter —– 

Dear Representative: 

This week, when the House takes up the D.C. voting legislation, please 
vote against any rule that strips the Senate’s pro-gun language and/or 
imposes a “gag rule” on members of the House. 

Just to remind you of how virulently anti-gun the D.C. gun law is: 
Following the Supreme Court’s decision in Heller declaring the law to be 
unconstitutional, D.C. made a few cosmetic changes which will, as a 
practical matter, allow it to continue to deny its citizens the right to 
keep and bear arms. 

But, in addition, the City Council passed a whole series of new anti-gun 
measures.  These include a requirement that most guns used for 
self-defense “microstamp” fired casings in two places with a 
“unique 
serial number.” 

Aside from being ineffectual with respect to stolen guns or crimes where 
the brass has not been left behind, this microstamping provision is 
intended to make guns so expensive that they won’t be available anywhere 
— including my state. 

I urge you, in the strongest terms, to oppose any rule that makes it 
impossible for you to vote on the D.C. gun ban repeal. 

Sincerely,

Two Great Pro-gun Amendments In The Senate– But Harry Reid stands in our way

Wednesday, February 25, 2009 

Thank you for all your activism so far! 

Senator John Ensign of Nevada offered his amendment to repeal D.C.’s 
draconian gun ban today. 

But Senators John Thune of South Dakota and David Vitter of Louisiana 
have also stepped up to the plate. They filed an amendment that would 
result in REAL national concealed carry reciprocity — without adversely 
affecting no-permit states like Alaska and Vermont. 

So now the battle lines are drawn!  By the end of the week, the Senate 
will vote on whether to rule these two pro-gun amendments out of order. 

The vote could come on a so-called “cloture” motion to cut 
off debate 
(and thus kill the Ensign and Thune/Vitter amendments). Moreover, if the 
underlying bill is then passed, the virulently anti-gun jurisdiction of 
the District of Columbia will be rewarded with a voting member of the 
House of Representatives. 

But first, a little background on the two amendments: 

You’ve all heard of the various “microstamping” proposals 
crafted by the 
anti-gunners to ban guns and ammunition nationwide. 

The anti-gunners would do this by serial number “microstamping” 
requirements which are so onerous that guns (or ammunition) would become 
prohibitively expensive in all 50 states. 

In the wake of the Heller case, the District of Columbia’s reaction to 
the Supreme Court’s decision declaring its gun laws unconstitutional was 
to pass legislation which will, as a practical matter, continue its 
current policy of denying gun licenses to its citizens.  But, to add 
insult to injury, it added a whole bunch of additional anti-gun 
provisions. 

One was a requirement that most guns used for self-defense be capable of 
“microstamping” a cartridge with a unique serial number.   
Aside from 
being useless for identifying any criminal who pockets his spent brass, 
this provision would, even if it were technologically possible, make 
guns so expensive that no one would buy them. 

If a few more liberal jurisdictions follow suit, this could start a 
chain reaction so that gun manufacturers will eventually be forced to 
manufacture ALL guns to meet the new microstamping standards. 

The Ensign amendment would completely repeal D.C.’s gun ban and, in the 
process, help stave off the push for microstamping. 

Next, the Thune/Vitter amendment on concealed carry reciprocity is an 
idea whose time has come. Why should your right to self-defense stop at 
the state line? 

But it must be the right kind of national reciprocity. It must protect 
states like Alaska and Vermont which do not require a permit to carry 
concealed at all and it must be done in a Constitutional manner that 
protects State’s rights. 

The Thune/Vitter amendment would do these things — it is REAL national 
reciprocity. 

But the problem is this:  Nevada Senator Harry Reid has moved to cut off 
debate on the D.C. bill — using a parliamentary maneuver known as a 
“cloture” petition — for the sole purpose of ruling such pro-gun 
amendments out of order. 

You see, Barack Obama and the liberals who run Congress hate guns.  They 
hate guns so much that they would probably be willing to kill the 
District’s voting representative in order to preserve the District’s gun 
ban. 

The next two days are crucial.  While there will be votes in the Senate 
throughout the day on Thursday — which may include either of the two 
pro-gun amendments — it is likely that the true focus will be on 
Friday’s cloture vote. 

ACTION:  Contact your two Senators and urge them to vote AGAINST cloture 
on S. 160 until the Senate has had an opportunity to vote for all 
pro-gun amendments. As usual, you can use the Gun Owners Legislative 
Action Center at http://gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Senators 
the pre-written message below. 

—– Pre-written letter —– 

Dear Senator: 

I urge you in the strongest terms to vote against cloture on S. 160 
until senators have had an opportunity to vote on pro-gun amendments, 
such as those offered by Senators Ensign and Thune. 

The issue is not whether to give D.C. a voting representative.  The 
issue is whether to impose a “gag rule” on those who oppose the 
District’s efforts to use its draconian gun laws to undermine gun rights 
in other states. 

Cloture — invoked for the cynical purpose of protecting D.C.’s anti-gun 
laws and to silence other pro-gun voices — is not a vote on D.C. 
representation.  It is a vote against the Second Amendment. 

Please let me know you do not favor silencing pro-gun voices.  Please do 
not vote for cloture until those voices are heard. 

And once debate is allowed to continue, I ask that you vote in favor of 
the Ensign amendment to repeal the District’s gun ban, as well as the 
Thune amendment for national concealed carry reciprocity. 

Sincerely, 

(Your Name)

Anti-gun Land Bill Moving Again– Gun control should be stripped from the legislation

Monday, February 23, 2009 

An alert last week asked you to urge your representative to oppose a 
massive land bill that was scheduled to come before the full House at 
any time. 

The good news is that opposition to the bill grew so loud that the 
leadership pulled it from the calendar so they would have more time to 
muster enough votes to pass it. 

Well, that also gives you another chance to contact your own 
representative to tell him to OPPOSE the anti-Second Amendment Omnibus 
Land Act.  The bill, S. 22, is now scheduled to be voted on this week. 

S.22 is a mammoth bill comprised of over 190 separate pieces of 
legislation and will come to the floor with a rule that will not allow 
pro-gun representatives to offer amendments. 

There are serious Second Amendment concerns with this legislation.  S. 
22 will greatly expand the amount of land controlled by the National 
Park Service (NPS).   Because the rights of lawful gun owners are 
restricted on NPS land, the bill will create even more 
“anti-Second Amendment” zones. 

In contrast to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Forest 
Service, which allow State and local laws to govern firearms 
possession, NPS land was until recently subject to a complete gun ban. 

In the waning days of his administration, President Bush partially 
reversed the ban, but that half-way measure still leaves a significant 
portion of the gun prohibition in place.  Gun Owners of America has 
fought for several years to fully repeal the NPS regulations, but those 
efforts have been hampered by the anti-gun leadership of both the House 
and Senate. 

GOA opposes many parts of the bill that are controversial and have not 
been debated on their individual merits. 

Consider just a few provisions of the 1,294-page bill: 

* Section 2002 codifies the National Landscape Conservation System, 
which groups together 26 million acres of federal land and places it 
under one umbrella agency. The NLCS was created during the Clinton 
administration and run administratively since that time. S. 22 will 
make the system permanent, raising concerns for hunters and sportsmen. 
Much of this land is consolidated from the BLM and the Forest Service, 
which have always allowed hunting and recreational shooting. It is 
unclear what rules will be promulgated by the new agency and if gun 
owners’ rights will be protected at all. 

* Section 5204 of the bill establishes the Washington-Rochambeau Route 
as a Historic Trail.  This dual trail begins in Rhode Island and 
travels 650 miles to Yorktown, Virginia.  The trail includes parts of 
major thoroughfares on the east coast such as Interstate 95 and US 
Route 1, meaning the gun ban could effect hundreds of thousands of 
unsuspecting gun owners each day. 

* Section 5301 authorizes the federal government to buy private land 
adjacent to national parks and trails. Such land would be controlled by 
the NPS, and thus be subject to the agencies’ anti-gun regulations. 

* Section 7002 makes the birthplace of William Jefferson Clinton a 
National Historic Site.  Well, perhaps it’s fitting that the legacy of 
former President Clinton, who was responsible for so many anti-Second 
Amendment laws, will include yet another “gun free” zone. 

In all, the bill designates over 2 million acres of wilderness, 
establishes three new national parks, a new national monument, three 
new national conservation areas, and four new national trails. 

If there are parts of the bill that could stand on their own, they 
should be brought up separately and dealt with in an open and fair 
process — and not used as bargaining chips in exchange for compromises 
of your Second Amendment rights. 

Some people on Capitol Hill contend that all of these bills already 
passed the House anyway.  In fact, no they haven’t.  More than 70 of 
these bills now before the House were only passed by the Senate.  The 
House of Representatives never even held hearings or open debate on 
these measures. 

Representative Rob Bishop (R-UT) has indicated that he wants to at 
least have the opportunity to offer an amendment to ensure that the 
Second Amendment rights of all Americans are protected. 

However, right now it looks as though the anti-gun House leadership 
will refuse to allow any amendments to the bill, in order to ensure 
that it goes straight to President Obama’s desk. 

There is a possibility that an amendment to protect only hunting and 
recreational shooting on federal land would be allowed.  Such an 
amendment by itself is not sufficient and is clearly designed as a 
“cover” vote for gun rights compromisers. 

Please contact your representative and urge him or her to insist that 
an amendment be allowed to protect ALL of your Second Amendment rights 
— not just hunting and recreational shooting. 

ACTION:  Please urge your Representative oppose S. 22.  You can go to 
the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at 
http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Representative the 
pre-written e-mail message below. 

—– Prewritten Letter —– 

Dear Representative: 

I urge you to oppose S. 22.  Among the many problems with this 
1,294-page bill are the following concerns gun owners have: 

* Section 2002 codifies the National Landscape Conservation System, 
which groups together 26 million acres of federal land and places it 
under one umbrella agency. The NLCS was created during the Clinton 
administration and run administratively since that time. S. 22 will 
make the system permanent, raising concerns for hunters and sportsmen. 
Much of this land is consolidated from the BLM and the Forest Service, 
which have always allowed hunting and recreational shooting. It is 
unclear what rules will be promulgated by the new agency and if gun 
owners’ rights will be protected at all. 

* Section 5204 of the bill establishes the Washington-Rochambeau Route 
as a Historic Trail.  This dual trail begins in Rhode Island and 
travels 650 miles to Yorktown, Virginia.  The trail includes parts of 
major thoroughfares on the east coast such as Interstate 95 and US 
Route 1, meaning the gun ban could effect hundreds of thousands of 
unsuspecting gun owners each day. 

* Section 5301 authorizes the federal government to buy private land 
adjacent to national parks and trails. Such land would be controlled by 
the NPS, and thus be subject to the agencies’ anti-gun regulations. 

Since it appears that amendments will not be allowed to this bill — 
thus prohibiting any attempt to remove these troubling provisions — I 
would urge you to vote against S. 22. 

Thank you.

Iowa National Guard Rolls Back Arcadia Invasion

February 22, 2009

According to Drew Zahn, writing for WorldNetDaily, the Iowa National Guard has “scaled back” its “training exercise” planned for April in Arcadia, Iowa, population 443.

Military spokesman Lt. Col. Greg Hapgood, told Zahn and WND that the operation has now been “scaled back” and no longer involves an “invasion” of Arcadia. “And while Hapgood confirmed the Guard had been inundated with objections from citizens concerned about soldiers patrolling the streets of an American town, he said most came from people out of state and unfamiliar with the operation. Iowans, he explained, typically cooperate with the Guard. The change in plans was based on troop evaluation, he said, not public outcry.”

 

On Friday, Alex Jones dedicated a large portion of his radio show to talking about the National Guard invasion of the small Iowa town. An undetermined number of listeners responded by contacting officials, including the National Guard, demanding the “exercise” be called off. Callers to the show indicated they would go to Arcadia in April and protest against the four-day urban military operation, described by the National Guard as a mock scenario designed to give soldiers the skills needed for deployment in an urban environment. Part of the invasion included searching houses. Alex Jones also announced he planned to travel to Arcadia and protest the operation.

“Higher headquarters leadership,” Hapgood told WND, “given the unit’s status of training proficiency, made a decision to scale back the exercise.”

It is fair to say Alex Jones and his audience are responsible in large part for the “scaled back” plans. In predictable fashion, the corporate media ignored the story and instead concentrated on frivolous topics such as octoplet mother Nadya Suleman and a supposed racist cartoon published in the New York Post.

**WARNING** Guardsmen to conduct urban training at Arcadia in April

February 22, 2009

“Folks this is as close to Natzi Germany as you can get. They are training our U.S. Army to go door-to-door in American cities and towns to confiscate law abiding citizens arms. If this is not a nightmarish scenario to you than you are in some weird, brainwashed, stupid, ignorant, authority groveling, TV worshiping, state of (Prozac popping) denial. I have no idea what kind of world these people live in. Many people woke up to the Bush administration but then almost all of you fell for the Obama administration.  The Obama team is starting off much worse then even the Bush team did. They are scaring the hell out of well educated & informed people everywhere. Good luck with thinking Obama is some nice liberal here to help us. He is as much a puppet as George Bush. He scares me worse than Bush because he has so many people behind him. He is as much a elitist as George Bush. He will stab his supporters in the back as many times as George Bush did.

People your really have to wake up to reality. Do you understand the implications of a government confiscating it peoples personal weapons of self-defense. READ SOME FUCKIN HISTORY BOOKS.

The purpose of the April 2-5 drill will be to gather intelligence, then search for and apprehend a suspected weapons dealer, according to Sgt. Mike Kots, readiness NCO for Alpha Company.

Citizens, law enforcement, media and other supporters will participate.

Troops will spend Thursday, April 2, staging at a forward operations base at Carroll. The next day company leaders will conduct reconnaissance and begin patrolling the streets of Arcadia to identify possible locations of the weapons dealer.

The primary phase will be done Saturday, April 4, when convoys will be deployed from Carroll to Arcadia. Pictures of the arms dealer will be shown in Arcadia, and soldiers will go door to door asking if residents have seen the suspect.

Brzezinski’s Fear: Class Warfare and Destruction of the New World Order

February 19, 2009

Kurt Nimmo

February 18, 2009

 

Making an appearance on the Morning Joe television show, the Rockefeller globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski said it is high time the rich who have made billions since the days of the Clinton administration help out the poor and struggling masses. Said Brzezinski:

Where is the monied class today? Why aren’t they doing something: the people who made billions, millions. I’m sort of thinking of Paulson, of Rubin. Why don’t they get together, and why don’t they organize a National Solidarity Fund in which they call on all of those who made these extraordinary amounts of money to kick some back in to [a] National Solidarity Fund?

Brzezinski almost looked grandfatherly as he said this (see video). He almost came off as a good-natured humanitarian… almost. It all sounded good, if implausible — that is until Brzezinski reached the end of his carefully crafted diatribe:

And if we don’t get some sort of voluntary National Solidarity Fund, at some point there’ll be such political pressure that Congress will start getting in the act, there’s going to be growing conflict between the classes and if people are unemployed and really hurting, hell, there could be even riots.

In other words, Brzezinski is afraid that if some filthy lucre is not dispensed among the unwashed, they will rise up and burn down the banks, sack the corporations, and destroy the globalist edifice so painfully erected over the last fifty or so years — and maybe even go so far as to string up Brzezinski and his fellow globalists from trees and overpasses, the sort of dirty and regrettable business that invariably occurs in the process of violent revolutions in response to decades of provocation.

It’s not the pain suffered by the unemployed and homeless that concerns Brzezinski and the one-world patricians. It is the prospect of class warfare. It is the horrific prospect of losing it all.

Brzezinski realizes the engineered financial crisis will have dire consequences and he wants to set aside a few crumbs to mollify the growing numbers of impoverished before they take to the streets. It is odd, however, that he mentioned fellow Trilateralist Robert Rubin as one of the people who should be donating to this proposed National Solidarity Fund. No doubt the former Goldman Sachs and Citigroup stooge Rubin had a good laugh over Brzezinski’s preposterous proposal.

If realized, it will be a National Solidarity Fund to save the bankers, not the people. Brzezinski and the global elite understand the last time they pulled this swindle — causing the so-called Great Depression — mass unemployment and bread lines transformed into widespread and popular political activism that seriously threatened the establishment. In response, the “New Deal” was cooked up to dissipate growing rebellion. It took a major world war and subsequently the creation of the military-industrial complex, the national security state, and highly orchestrated cold war to inflate a newly contrived “boom” bubble to get out of the banker engineered Great Depression.

Brzezinski’s National Solidarity Fund is another bankster scam devised to sideline the possibility of rebellion before it gets going. Needless to say, this shabby hustle is wholly insufficient and it will take more than a few billion dollars worth of crumbs from the likes of Hank Paulson and Robert Rubin to prevent the rebellion, class warfare, and violence of the coming storm.

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Yesterday, Barack Obama signed the $787 BILLION “stimulus” bill into law.  This marks his first major legislative action, but just one of many already broken campaign promises.

He promised transparency and accountability in the legislative process, but the details of the bill were negotiated in closed-door sessions.  Then, only a very limited number of physical copies were made available.

In addition, lawmakers had less than 24 hours to review the over 1,000 page bill before the vote was taken, hardly enough time to read a bill with such critical implications for our economy.

So far, one thing is clear from these early weeks of the Obama administration:

Barack Obama has brought no real change to Washington.

He is continuing the reckless spending and out of control debt of the last administration.  He is playing the usual Washington games of partisan bickering and exempting those who work for him from standards required of every other American.  His “stimulus” is packed with lobbyist payoffs and special-interest pork.

Barack Obama is right about one thing – we ARE facing a serious economic crisis.  But he is wrong that “only government can break the vicious cycle.”

Big Government economic policies are the cause of the cycle, not the solution!

Reckless spending and socialist meddling will only prolong the economic turmoil our government has created.  We cannot allow the new administration continue down this same destructive path.

Only fiscal restraint, free markets, and individual liberty can return us to stability and prosperity.

Congress Tells Americans to “Drop Dead”

February 19, 2009

“All I can really say is that Obama & his cronies got on their knees and opened their mouths and Satan repeatedly mouth raped them. Yes, this is one of the biggest “soul-selling’s” in American history. Do you really have to be told to wake up to reality still? They are systematically destroying this country.”

— Billions of dollars for anti-gun ACORN and computer database

Wednesday, February 18, 2009 

It was a day that will live in infamy. 

President Obama traveled to Denver, Colorado yesterday to sign the 
multi-billion dollar, pork-laden, so-called “stimulus” bill 
into law. 

But forget the $787 billion price tag you heard on TV.  Forget the $12 
TRILLION debt limit which the bill created. 

By the time debt services and other frills of the “socialism 
bill” are 
accounted for, the cost will be over $3,000,000,000,000 (yes, three 
TRILLION). 

This makes the bill the biggest government spending grab in human 
history. 

But what about the details?  The hundreds and hundreds of pages in the 
bill were not made available until less than 18 hours before the final 
passage vote.  But here’s what we know in relation to the gun-related 
provisions: 

* The final bill continues to spend between $12 and $20 BILLION on 
requiring your doctor to retroactively put your most confidential 
medical records into a government database.  Based on our experience 
with veterans, we would expect the government to try to use computerized 
psychiatric records to impose gun bans on people who have sought (or 
will seek) treatment. 

* The final bill continues to fund liberal community action groups like 
ACORN, which has been convicted in previous elections for voter fraud 
and is now under investigation in several states for having engaged in 
massive criminal election fraud on behalf of Barack Obama’s presidential 
candidacy.  Not only that, they have also been involved in anti-Second 
Amendment activism in New Jersey. 

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel was at least honest when he said 
it would be a shame to let a crisis like the current recession “go to 
waste.”  Like vultures picking on the nation’s carcass, the White House 
has used the nation’s pain to lavish largesse on its political 
supporters, at the expense of the nation’s economic survival. 

And, in the end, this act of ethical depravity was made possible by 
every Democrat Senator who voted for the bill, plus the defections of 
three Republicans:  Arlen Specter (R-PA), Olympia Snowe (R-ME), and 
Susan Collins (R-ME). 

If there is one silver lining to all of this, it’s the debunking of a 
rumor that recently swept across the internet.  The rumor claimed that 
the provisions of HR 45 — the massive gun registration bill introduced 
by Chicago congressman Bobby Rush (D) — were “rolled into” 
what was 
passed. 

But having searched the contents of the new law, GOA staff has 
determined the rumor appears to be false.

Democrat Proposes Law Requiring Firearm Owners Have $1,000,000 Insurance Policies

February 17, 2009

Infowars
February 15, 2009

Illinois — the land of Obama and the Blagojevich mafia — is serious about making the Second Amendment so expensive only the rich will be able to exercise it. Kenneth Dunkin, a former social worker and Democrat member of the Illinois House of Representatives, has introduced HB0687, entitled the “Firearm Owners ID-Insurance” bill. It is currently in the Rules Committee.

Dunkin’s bill amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act, a previous bill aimed at chipping away at the Second Amendment. Dunkin’s amendment states “that any person who owns a firearm in this State shall maintain a policy of liability insurance in the amount of at least $1,000,000 specifically covering any damages resulting from negligent or willful acts involving the use of such firearm while it is owned by such person.”

A million dollars!

Can you imagine the premium on such an insurance policy? It would be astronomical and out of the reach of most people in Illinois.

If the firearm owner cannot afford the insurance or decides that it is simply crazy and also unconstitutional and refuses to participate, “the Department of State Police shall revoke and seize a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card,” thus making the the firearm illegal and the owner a criminal.

If Dunkin’s bill makes it out of committee and is passed by the Illinois General Assembly, a whole lot of people will have their firearms confiscated by the State Police.

Get On Board & Start Making Some “Real” Change

February 17, 2009

February 12, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I hope you share my firm conviction that our fight is just beginning!

You’ve stood alongside me in our battles for Liberty and the Constitution before.  Now, an even bigger threat – and an even bigger opportunity – is upon us.

Please read the enclosed letter from Campaign for Liberty’s President, John Tate.  John isn’t just a friend of mine.  He’s also someone who worked side by side with me in the Revolution as my National Political Director.  Now he’s agreed to take up the fight in a way I cannot – by leading the Revolution on the outside, while I return to Congress.

In Liberty,
      

Congressman Ron Paul

 


FROM THE DESK OF:
John F. Tate, President
Campaign For Liberty

 

Dear Patriot,

Please take a moment to fill out the Campaign for Liberty Membership Ballot.

It’s important you do so at once.

Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Ben Bernanke are all hoping you don’t.  They’re counting on you and me to sit on the sidelines and lick our wounds from last year.

Well, I for one intend to fight.

And since you are a supporter of Ron Paul and his Campaign for Liberty, I’m confident you’re ready for the brutal battles ahead as the forces of tyranny stand ready to take away more and more of our freedoms – if you and I don’t act today.

Make no mistake, the fight begins NOW.

If you and I don’t act today, the first 100 days of the Obama Administration could well be an even bigger disaster for freedom-loving proponents of constitutional government than were the last 8 years.
 
Already we have seen the type of assaults on limited government Barack Obama has in mind.  He wasted no time in pushing forward the one TRILLION DOLLAR boondoggle he cunningly packaged as a “Stimulus Plan.”
 
And if the new Administration and their allies get their way, this will be just the tip of the iceberg.
 
And that’s not all. You and I are up against:

*** More government bailouts – for the auto industry, for more banks and financial institutions – and who knows how many others.  What we can be certain of is more and more of our tax dollars are being flushed away each and every day.

*** Continued FED secrecy and practices that devalue our currency and create bubbles, malinvestment, and the volatile business cycle.

*** Expansion of federal powers under the Homeland Security Department and Patriot Act to position government to suspend your freedom at will.

*** Huge new federal bureaucracies staffed with freedom-taking enemies, intent on doing Big Government’s bidding.

*** A new Obama plan for mandatory federal service, forcing America’s young people into his “Army” of government workers.

And that’s just the beginning.

With so much at stake in the coming months, and so much to fight back against, it’s critical I have two things from you today.

First, your advice. 

It is important that you share your thoughts and input with us on our Membership Ballot by following this link:

https://www.campaignforliberty.com/membershipballot.php

Secondly, it’s vital that the Revolution have your continued financial support as well.

You see, you and I are going to face some tough decisions in the near future.  I may well have to decide which bills to fight and which we can’t afford to do battle over!

That’s why it’s vital your advice – and your support – come to Campaign for Liberty right away.
 
You and I have some work to do.  And we must start today.  This hour.  This minute.

You know you can count on Ron Paul and Campaign for Liberty to fight when no one else will. 

That is why Campaign for Liberty was established: to fight for common-sense principles such as freedom and limited government, and to reinsert these ideals into the American political conversation when others falter.

Campaign for Liberty, born out of Ron Paul’s decades-long crusade for Freedom everywhere, is the only vehicle committed to fighting the tyranny of BOTH parties in Washington, DC.

There’s no doubt that you and I are in a battle right now for the survival of our nation and its constitutional form of government.   There’s so much at stake this year – and so much out there to fight.  It can all seem very overwhelming at times.

But if you and I don’t lead the fight, who will?

Who will stand for our Constitution?

Who will lead the charge to take back our freedom?

Who will stand up to Barack Obama’s big government philosophy?

Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty is the ONLY nationwide organization, beholden to NEITHER party, that can do just that.

In fact, we are already mobilizing the grassroots supporters of Liberty for this battle.

But we have much work to do.

If Campaign for Liberty can raise the necessary funds, we will fight on each and every one of these vital issues this year

– Fighting to preserve our freedom and Constitution.

– Opposing more government bailouts and stimulus packages.

– Fighting to stop Congress’ automatic pay raise scheduled for 2010.

– Passing legislation forcing a full audit of the Federal Reserve as we work toward eliminating that institution and restoring our money to being backed by more than just the assurances of bureaucrats.

– Strongly defending the Second Amendment from the many attacks to come.

– Protecting workers’ rights from the coercive power of Big Labor, Big Government, and Big Business.

– Working to end a foreign policy that has our troops stretched beyond the breaking point, leaving America more vulnerable.

– Promoting legislation to restore national sovereignty by cutting our ties with, and ultimately getting the U.S. out of, the U.N.

– And so much more ….

There are many crucial decisions to be made in the days and weeks ahead.  Our goal is to fight each and every one of these battles, and I hope you’ll help me do just that.

You see, as an organization that stands on principle, we cannot demand fiscal responsibility while behaving recklessly ourselves.  So unlike the Federal Government, we are unwilling to go into debt to finance our operations.  It is only with your loyal support that Campaign for Liberty can hope to fight and win these many battles before us. 

If you can help us financially in any way, please do.  Every donation, even $25 or $50, will make a difference.  And if you can afford a larger donation — $250, $500, or even more — it will go a very long way toward restoring freedom. 

But first it is vital I have your advice on where and when to fight.  That’s why I’m asking you to fill out our Membership Ballot along with your donation.

https://www.campaignforliberty.com/membershipballot.php

Our country is ailing.  That is the bad news.  The good news is that the remedy is simple: return to the principles of our Founders.

Respect for the Constitution, the rule of law, individual liberty, sound money, and a noninterventionist foreign policy constitute the foundation of Campaign for Liberty.

Join the fight today by filling out a Membership Ballot and continuing your support of Campaign for Liberty.

We are reliant on the generosity of our fellow patriots to succeed in this important struggle.  After helping by sharing yourinput, please help us further by making a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50, or whatever you can afford.

Our Founders prevailed in their Revolution due to their unshakable resolve and unerring faith in the principles now championed by Campaign for Liberty. 

With your help, we too can beat back the forces of Big Government, reclaim our Republic, and restore respect for our Constitution.



In Liberty,

John F. Tate
President
 

PS:  With more government bailouts, trillion dollar “stimulus” packages, and nearly daily threats to our liberty on the agenda this year, it’s vital your Campaign for Liberty fight back today – before we see the total destruction of the U.S. dollar.

Please share your thoughts on how best to win these battles by clicking here.  Campaign for Liberty relies on the input and financial support of freedom-loving Americans for our continued success. 

If you can afford it, please join our fight for freedom and donate $250, $100, or $50 today!

Individual rights protected by the state are non-negotiable says, Rep. Dan Itse

February 17, 2009

 

By: George @ 1: 31 PM – EST

Glenn Beck interviews New Hampshire representative Dan Itse on the issue of state sovereignty and New Hampshire’s new bill stating sovereignty from the federal government under the U.S. Constitution. This movement has sparked other states to work toward declaring sovereignty from the federal government.

These issues are non-negotiable says Rep. Dan Itse:

  • Declaring martial law without the consent of the state government.
  • Further encroachments on the Right to Bear Arms.
  • Involuntary servitude of 18 to 24 year olds.

“This isn’t about withdrawing from the union. The happiest resolution of this resolution would be a renewed union within the confines of The Constitution.” Rep. Itse continues,  “But if the general government nullifies The Constitution. How to you withdraw from something that doesn’t exist?”

Ron Paul Supporters Lead Fight to Restore State Sovereignty in Oklahoma

February 16, 2009

February 13, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Please take a moment to read the following report from C4L Interim State Coordinator Kirk Shelley regarding recent action in the Oklahoma legislature to uphold the state’s sovereignty under the Constitution’s Tenth Amendment.

Similar action is being taken all over the country, as resistance to the federal government’s continual intrusion into our lives grows.  I urge all our Oklahoma members to immediately contact their state representatives in support of final passage for House Joint Resolution 1003.  More details are included in this report.

If you are in a state where such a resolution has not been introduced, contact your state legislators today and tell them to stand up for your state’s sovereignty. 

 

In Liberty,

John Tate

President, Campaign for Liberty

 

*******************************

Paul Supporters Lead Fight to Restore State Sovereignty in Oklahoma

“State House to consider historic bill to take back state’s rights under the 10th Amendment to the Constitution”

Oklahoma CityFor far too long, the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution has been known as the forgotten amendment.   With power grab after power grab, Congress has slowly eroded the rights of states to keep powers not specifically granted to the federal government.

As more and more citizens and state legislators across the country begin to realize that this loss of states rights is at the core of many of our nation’s problems, those legislators have set out to stop the out of control Congress and restore some sense of sanity and constitutional protections to the individual states.

On February 11th, Oklahoma became the first state to act on legislation to do just that.  This action was directly brought about by a Ron Paul supporter, and it is Campaign for Liberty members that will see this battle all the way through.

You see, the 10th Amendment in our nation’s Bill of Rights has long been despised by our big government foes.  That amendment was drafted to enshrine in the Constitution what the Founders and the original states already knew: any power not expressly given to the federal government is kept by the states and the people.  Although a lot of freedom-minded individuals have long fought for full compliance with this amendment in modern times, there has been a void of leadership and a lack of focused action – until now.

That void has been filled by the formation of Campaign for Liberty, which was born from Ron Paul’s galvanizing 2008 Presidential campaign.

Campaign for Liberty is fighting in state legislatures across the country and in Congress to preserve and restore constitutional rights to all citizens, to subdue an out of control federal government, and to win back our lost freedom.

The fight in Oklahoma is a great example of the kind of battles we face in the next stages of the Ron Paul Revolution.

With the support of Dr. Paul’s activists throughout the state, the Oklahoma legislature has taken up a vital bill to put Congress in its place and to remind it that there are limits to federal power.

This past Wednesday, the Oklahoma House Rules Committee unanimously supported House Joint Resolution 1003 (http://webserver1.lsb.state.ok.us/2009-10HB/HJR1003_int.rtf), which expresses the sovereignty of the State of Oklahoma and clearly calls for an end to unconstitutional federal government mandates.

Representative Charles Key (R-Oklahoma City), the sponsor of this bill, has spearheaded a national movement to put the federal government on notice that the separate states are sick and tired of having their actions dictated by Washington, D.C.

Rep. Charles Key is a supporter of Dr. Paul – in fact, he was the first elected official in Oklahoma to endorse Ron Paul’s candidacy for President (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aa5sCO-3ly0) because of Dr. Paul’s strong support for the US Constitution.

Oklahoma IS an example of how the R3volution is leading the battle to restore constitutional rights and freedoms to our citizens.  The fight to reclaim our Republic and restore our Constitution is just beginning, and, with the continued efforts of Campaign for Liberty members all across the country, it is a fight that we can and will win.

HR 45 May be More Troubling Than the Average Anti-gun Bill

HR 45 May be More Troubling Than the Average Anti-gun Bill
— Legislation may reflect Obama’s thinking

 

by Mike Hammond

Those of you who regularly peruse the GOA website know that there are dozens of anti-gun abominations which are introduced as legislation in the Senate and House each Congress. These include, particularly, national gun licensing and broad gun bans.

GOA provides a summary of these bills for the benefit of our members and friends. But we do not focus on most of these bills because they are so extreme that they have no chance of passage. They are cynically introduced so that the Brady Campaign can raise money by threatening anti-gun measures it could never pass.

 But the first anti-gun bill of the 111th Congress -– Chicago Congressman Bobby Rush’s H.R. 45 –- has caught the attention of many in the Second Amendment community as something we need to be worried about.

 

This is because of the extremity of the bill:

 * H.R. 45 would require a federal license for all handguns and semiautomatics, including those you currently possess; and

 * It would require handgun and semi-auto owners to be thumbprinted at the police station and to sign a certificate that, effectively, the firearm will not be kept in a place where it would be available for the defense of the gun owner’s family.

 

Pretty scary, huh? But, while this despotic nuttiness makes you wonder why a congressman from the Murder Capital of the Midwest would think that it would help to make the residents of New Hampshire, Alaska, and Wyoming comply with his blood-soaked city’s anti-gun laws, there have been other bills which are just as unconstitutional.

 Rather, what makes H.R. 45 troubling is its sponsor and its timing.

 Its sponsor is Congressman Bobby Rush –- a scion of the same super-corrupt Chicago political machine that produced disgraced Governor Rod Blagojevich and President Barack Obama.

 And as for its timing, it was introduced during the confirmation of Attorney General nominee Eric Holder — the man who tried exploit the Columbine tragedy in order to pass gun licensing as Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton administration.

 And make no mistake about it: Licensing is only a way-station to discouraging, arresting, or humiliating gun owners and outlawing guns. Under H.R. 45, for example, the applicant must also make available ALL of his psychiatric records, pass an exam, and pay a fee.

 So… are you a veteran who has ever consulted a psychologist or psychiatrist? Guess what? The FBI would soon be examining every confidential statement you have ever made during those consultations.

 Private sales of handguns and semi-autos would be outlawed, and reports to the attorney general of all transactions would be required, even when — as the bill allows — the AG determines that a state licensing system is sufficiently draconian to substitute for the federal license.

 But, you may be thinking, “I’m just a hunter with a deer rifle… surely, none of this is relevant to me”?

 Then you should know that, with virtually no exceptions, ALL firearms transactions (including person-to-person private sales of long guns, hunting rifles, shotguns, etc.) would be subject to the same paperwork hassles that are required when buying from a dealer.

 In addition, the bill would make it unlawful in virtually all cases to keep any loaded firearm for self-defense. A variety of “crimes by omission” (such as failure to report certain things to the government) would be created.

 Criminal penalties of up to ten years and virtually unlimited regulatory and inspection authority would be established.

 Combined with the Ammunition Accountability effort to outlaw ammunition in numerous states, this two-pronged attack would soon make gun ownership a thing of the past.

 Barack Obama was fond of saying during the campaign that he supported the Second Amendment. And we read of gun buyers who are flocking -– while it is still legal -– to purchase firearms, but who concede that they believed Obama’s assurances and voted for him.

 But we may soon see a more horrific, nastier side of Barack Obama… and a capacity to go after his political enemies. And we have to assume that he will view gun owners as just about the most important of those enemies.

“Pork” Bailout Bill Could Ban Guns for Millions of Americans

February 16, 2009

“HR 1 is about more than just pork. Millions of gun owners stand to lose their gun rights without any due process.” Larry Pratt, GOA Executive Director

 

 Wednesday, February 11, 2009

 

The Obama administration is putting a lot of pressure on Congress to slam through the most recent $800+ billion bailout package before anyone has an opportunity to read it.

 

The Obama administration intones that the details are unimportant. The only thing that matters is the “bigness.” And, by shipping a bill of nearly $900 billion (plus interest) to our children and grandchildren, the package is really, really big –- bigger, in fact, than the budget of our entire government for the first 170 years of our country’s existence.

 

But now that some of the details are finally starting to leak out of Washington, Gun Owners -– and a lot of other analysts -– are beginning to look at the fine print. And some of it is particularly scary.

 

Of particular concern to gun owners are sections 13101 through 13434 of HR 1, which would set up the infrastructure to computerize the medical records of ALL AMERICANS in a government-coordinated database.

 

True, the bill doesn’t mandate that the data will be in a giant computer under the Oval Office. But it does mandate that your medical records be reduced to a computerized form which is available to it in a second.

 

This it would do by establishing a National Coordinator for Health Information Technology –- tasked with, among other things, “providing information to help guide medical decisions at the time and place of care.”

 

It should be scary enough that a government bureaucrat is directed by statute to try to influence your doctor’s decisions with respect to your medical care.

 

But of even greater concern to gun owners is the fact that a government-coordinated database (which government can freely access) will now contain all records of government-provided and private psychiatric treatment -– including, in particular, the drugs which were prescribed.

 

Remember last year’s “NICS Improvement Act” otherwise known as the Veterans Disarmament Act? This law codified ATF’s attempts to make you a prohibited person on the basis of a government psychiatrist’s finding that you are a “danger” –- without a finding by any court. Well, roughly 150,000 battle-scarred veterans have already been unfairly stripped of their gun rights by the government.

 

But people who, as kids, were diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder… or seniors with Alzheimer’s… or police with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder… or people who are now theoretically covered by the new law… these people have, generally, not suffered the consequences of its sanctions YET. And the chief reason is that their records are not easily available to the government in a central, easily retrievable, computerized form.

 

The bailout bill would change all of that. It would push increasingly hard to force your private psychiatrist or government-sanctioned psychiatrist to turn over your psychiatric records to a massive database. This would be mandated immediately if your doctor does business with the government.

 

This would supposedly save Medicare money in connection with medical treatment. And, the sponsors insist, they would work very hard to protect your privacy.

 

But this turns the concept of “privacy” on its head. The privacy which is MOST important is privacy from the prying eyes of government –- not privacy of government data against the prying eyes of others. After all, many government data bases have been hacked in recent years, with mountains of information stolen.

 

So, once the government has access to these computerized psychiatric records, the stage will be set for using that database to take away the gun rights of those with Alzheimer’s, those with ADD, and those with PTSD.

http://gunowners.org/a021109.htm

 

 

ACTION: Write your two senators. Urge them to vote against the bailout bill (HR 1) until it is stripped of provisions which would turn your psychiatric records over to a central government-coordinated database against your will without you getting your day in court.

 

 

You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center to send your Senators the pre-written e-mail message below.

– Prewritten Letter –

Dear Senator:

 

 

I am particularly concerned about sections 13101 through 13434 of the new bailout bill (HR 1). These sections would set up the infrastructure to computerize the medical records of ALL AMERICANS in a government-coordinated database, including psychiatric records.

 

 

It is scary enough that a government bureaucrat is directed by statute to try to influence my doctor’s decisions with respect to my medical care.

 

 

But of even greater concern to gun owners is the fact that a government-coordinated database will now contain all records of government-provided and private psychiatric treatment.

 

 

Last year’s “NICS Improvement Act” codified ATF’s attempts to make a person a prohibited person on the basis of a government psychiatrist’s finding that he is a “danger” –- without a finding by any court. Well, roughly 150,000 battle-scarred veterans have already been unfairly stripped of their gun rights by the government.

 

 

Now, this new government-coordinated database threatens the gun rights of people who, as kids, were diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder… seniors with Alzheimer’s… police with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder… and many other law-abiding Americans.

 

 

Please vote against cloture on HR 1 until this provision is removed.

 

 

Sincerely,

(a smart American, “Your Name”)

Obama’s First Press Conference: Repeating Old Lies, Dodging Old Truths

February 13, 2009

mister_president

by BAR managing editor Bruce Dixon

Wednesday, 11 February 2009

So how’s that “change” thing working out? Are we getting better, or more of the same, and why?  In his first press conference, Obama labeled Iran a destabilizing influence in the Middle East because it allegedly sought nuclear weapons, while ignoring the longstanding Israeli nuclear threat to all its neighbors.  And the same day, Obama Justice Department lawyers appeared in court to invoke the same defense against investigation of their secret cross-border kidnapping and torture schemes as Bush — that these widely known activities were “state secrets”.  Have we heard any of this before?

 

Inthe past few years, newspapers and broadcast media around the worldhave printed and aired details of a lawless US government policy ofkidnapping civilians and flying them abroad for indefinite detentionand torture at the hands of client governments or its own militaryand civilian officials. Called “extraordinary rendition” by theBush Administration, which inherited it from its Democraticpredecessor, this illegal practice has been the subject of a numberof books reconstructing the flight plans and naming many of theso-called “black sites” where the illegal jailings andtortures took place. Despite the wealth of publicly available detailon these criminal practices, the Bush administration claimed that tobe answerable in court for this illegal conduct would compromise“state secrets,” and found federal judges to agree with thisridiculous claim.

Onhis first full day in office, President Obama renewed his pledge toclose the “black sites” without of course naming them and givinghimself a full year to do so, and declared that the US governmentwould observe legal norms from this point onward. So when some ofthe victims of Bush-era cross-border kidnapping and torture appearedin court Monday, the reasonable expectation was that the new JusticeDepartment would reverse itself and allow their lawsuits for damagesto proceed. Instead lawyers for the Obama Justice Department rose toobject to the case being heard in federal court on the same groundsthat the Bush-Cheney regime had employed — that revealing thecriminal conduct of US military and civilian officials in court, evenwhen this conduct is widely documented and well known, wouldjeopardize “state secrets.”

Butafter all the books and articles and news items, there are noremaining “state secrets” of any significance in the process ofcross-border kidnapping and torture. Looking backward, all that’sleft are details like how many times it happened, who was kidnappedand tortured, how many buried still alive or dead, and where thosebodies, animated and not, are now, and what dates which orders weregiven. But the president assures us he is not looking backward, sothe unidentified maimed, dead and missing, their torturers andenablers and the names of all but the highest officials involved —Bush, Cheney, Powell, Rice, Rumsfeld and their immediate deputies inand out of uniform — will appear on no court records, because Obama’sJustice Department, just like the Bush Justice Department, insiststhat all the details of their well known crimes, down to theidentities of the victims, are “state secrets.”

Aslegal and official falsehoods go, this one is naked and transparent. It provides past, present and future criminals on the civil servicepayroll the same cloak of immunity they enjoyed in the Bush-Cheneyyears. And it sets the tone, in many ways, for the newadministration. 

 

Laterthat day, in a similar spirit of telling old lies and avoiding oldtruths, President Obama used his very first press conference to labelIran and its alleged quest for nuclear weapons as the pre-eminentthreat to peace and stability in the Middle East. Helen Thomas, themost senior reporter in the White House press corps, and the only oneto stand up to Obama’s predecessor, asked point-blank whether anyother countries in the Middle East possessed nuclear weapons. It isof course common knowledge that Israel has hundreds of nukes aimed atevery capital in the region from Tripoli to Teheran. No less amember of Obama’s cabinet than Robert Gates at his confirmationaffirmed that Israel has nukes, but it suited the new president torefuse to answer the question, to ignore Thomas’s follow-ups, and tofilibuster for four or five minutes in some other direction.

Tensof millions who voted for this president imagined they’d get realchange. But the reality is dawning on many that what we’re gettingis a lot more of the same. We have a president who repeatsdiscredited lies about “rogue regimes” with nuclear weapons,while he ignores Israel, a genuine 21st century apartheidstate, which has menaced its neighbors with nuclear weapons for morethan thirty years.

Obamavolunteered at some point during the press conference, that themoment the true import of his new job sank into him was when he hadto sign letters notifying the families of American dead, “ourheroes,” as he called them. The president made no mention of hisdecision, on this third day of office, to launch drones and cruisemissiles into Pakistan. Those missiles killed 17 people, includingseveral children. The drones were probably launched fromAfghanistan, and remotely piloted by stateside military personnel. Those dead, including the children, got no letters of regret from thepresident, and seemed not to register in the president’s publiccalculus. After all, they were not American heroes.

Theelection is over. Those unconditional Obama defenders who answer thepresident’s critics with “well what did you want, McCain?” aredoing what their president says he won’t do. They are living in thepast, looking backward instead of forward. It’s time to hold thecurrent president and his actions up to the cold light of day, toevaluate his performance in light of his promises and our legitimateexpectations for peace and justice. It’s time those of us who standfor peace and justice stop protecting the president. We may soonneed to be protected from him.

Obama says stimulus vital to avoid ‘catastrophe’

February 10, 2009

24

Do people realize that this is a threat? The same threat that Bush-Knob made with the first of the bailouts. Do people realize yet that their all fucking crooks…left, right, middle, whatever?  Does anyone realize yet that their stealing tax payers money with these bailout/stimulus plans and they refuse to even tell our Congressmen where the money is actually going? Does anyone realize yet that their training our own troops to police our streets and does anyone realize how fucking Unconstitutional that is? Does anyone realize yet that they are building the first blocks of a massive wall that will crush what freedoms we have left?  

Ahh, lets see…federalizing state and local law enforcement, Building FEMA detentions camps all over the US, Obama’s call for a Homeland Security Force. They say… they can use these camps in the event of civil unrest with this economy, etc. And their Homeland security douche-bags dressed in black can police the people in the event of civil unrest.

THEY CREATED THIS ECONOMY COLLAPSE. THIS IS A VERY WELL THOUGHT OUT PLAN BY THE OFFSHORE GLOBAL ELITE WHO REALLY RUN THIS COUNTRY.  Sorry about that. What I’m trying to say is we’re looking at a world of shit if we don’t start speaking out about these phony bailouts and the obvious criminal element that has hijacked this country.

American soldiers, local and state law enforcement, our elected officials, you should be the most ashamed of yourselves. Your supposed to be the first responders against treason. You’ve left it to the people take care of. I just hope their capable of the task. I’m no “tough guy” by any stretch of imagination but we’re learning some life lessons at the moment,  on what it really means to be a man. You’ve been spoon fed a heaping pile of shit on what it means.  Snap out of it. Stop bowing down. Start standing up for yourselves and the place your family lives. Thank God you can all be saved by the truth.”

By JENNIFER LOVEN, AP White House Correspondent 

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama pressed Congress Monday night to urgently approve a massive economic recovery bill, using the first prime-time news conference of his presidency to warn that a failure to act “could turn a crisis into a catastrophe.” With the nation falling deeper into a long and painful recession, Obama defended his program against Republican criticism that it is loaded with pork-barrel spending and will not create jobs.

“The plan is not perfect,” the president said, addressing the nation from the East Room of the White House. “No plan is. I can’t tell you for sure that everything in this plan will work exactly as we hope, but I can tell you with complete confidence that a failure to act will only deepen this crisis as well as the pain felt by millions of Americans.”

When the stimulus bill passed the House, not a single Republican voted for it. On Monday an $838 billion version of the legislation cleared a crucial test vote in the Senate by a 61-36 margin, with all but three Republican senators opposing it.

Obama said the federal government was the only power that could save the nation at a time of crisis, with huge spending outlays and tax cuts that he contended could save or create up to 4 million jobs.

“At this particular moment, with the private sector so weakened by this recession, the federal government is the only entity left with the resources to jolt our economy back to life,” Obama said.

Rejecting criticism, he said that 90 percent of the jobs created by the plan would be in the private sector, rebuilding crumbling roads, bridges and other aging infrastructure.

“The plan that ultimately emerges from Congress must be big enough and bold enough to meet the size of the economic challenge we face right now,” Obama said.

Again and again, he stressed that the economy is in dire straits.

“This is not your ordinary, run of the mill recession,” he said. Obama said the United States aims to avoid the kind of economic pain that Japan endured in the 1990s — the “lost decade” when that nation showed no economic growth.

“My bottom line is to make sure that we are saving or creating 4 million jobs,” he said, and that homeowners facing foreclosure receive some relief.

While Obama stressed the economy in the opening minutes of the news conference, he also faced questions on foreign policy, and was asked how his administration would deal with Iran, a nation accused by the United States of supporting terrorism and pursuing nuclear weapons.

The president said his administration was reviewing its policy toward Iran “looking at places where we can have constructive dialogue.” He also said it was time for Iran to change its behavior.

“My expectation is in the coming months we will be looking for openings that can be created where we can be sitting across the table face to face,” Obama said.

He said that Iran must understand that funding terrorist organizations and pursuing nuclear weapons are unacceptable.

On the economy, Obama took a swipe at Republicans for criticizing the stimulus bill as wasteful. He pointed out that he inherited the current economic crisis and a doubling of the national debt from eight years of theBush administration.

Yet, he also acknowledged that some components of the bill would not create jobs, as GOP critics have complained. While such spending plans might be worthy, he said, “those programs should be out of this.”

Obama spoke a day before his administration was to announce new policies to rescue the ailing financial industry. A major goal of that program is to persuade hedge fundsinsurance companies and private equity firms to buy into some of U.S. banks’ riskiest investments.

“The credit crisis is real and it’s not over,” Obama said. He faulted the way the first $350 billion of the $700 billion bailout program was spent. “We didn’t get as big of a bang for the buck as we should have,” he said.

He said the government would work with banks to take bad debts off of their books so they will start making loans again. He said his goal was to restore market confidence.

Obama said he did not know whether more bailout money would be needed and, if so, how much that might be.

A special message from the Downsize DC FOUNDATION about a matter of public education . . .

February 9, 2009

Before and after the election there was a run on guns and ammo. Suppliers couldn’t keep their shelves stocked. What provoked this?

The winning candidate promised “common sense gun reform” — coincidentally, a mantra of the leading gun control lobby. Those of us who treasure the entire Bill of Rights wondered, what would be . . . 

* restricted?
* taxed?
* banned?

President Obama has signaled his policy intentions through the person he’s chosen as Attorney General, Eric Holder. What does “common sense gun reform” mean to Mr. Holder? As Clinton’s Deputy Attorney General, Holder advocated . . . 

* federal licensing of handgun owners,
* a waiting period on handgun sales,
* rationing handgun sales to no more than one per month,
* banning possession of firearms by anyone under age of 21, and . . .
* giving the federal government the power to shut down gun shows.

It gets worse. After 9/11 Holder wrote an op-ed proposing that the federal government have a record of every gun purchase so that gun owners could be matched against government “watch lists,” such as the cancerous terrorist watch list that now contains a million names.

This is Mr. Holder’s past record. Has he changed? The answer is no . . .

Earlier this year Mr. Holder co-signed a brief in “District of Columbia v. Heller.” The brief defended DC’s ban on . . .

* All handguns
* Using a gun in self-defense, and . . .
* Asserted that the Second Amendment is a “collective,” not an individual right 

Enter Stephen Halbrook, author of “The Founders’ Second Amendment: Origins of the Rights to Bear Arms.” Mr. Halbrook also filed a brief in the Heller case, on behalf of 55 Senators, the Senate President, and 250 House members.

Mr. Halbrook’s brief summarized the evidence from his book, using the Founders’ own statements, correspondence, debates, and resolutions to demonstrate conclusively that the right to bear arms is indeed an individual right, not a rationed privilege reserved to a government-controlled militia.

The Supreme Court reached the same conclusion in deciding the Heller case on June 26, 2008.

Mr. Halbrook has also testified against the nomination of Eric Holder.

Alone among President Obama’s appointment, the Holder nomination has been delayed. We believe Mr. Halbrook’s testimony contributed to this, in spite of the fact that the “New York Times” claims that “No one has questioned Mr. Holder’s qualifications.”

We think Mr. Halbrook deserves a higher profile so that maybe even the “New York Times” will take notice. People need to hear his voice in the coming debate over “common sense gun laws.” One way to do that is by making his book, “The Founders’ Second Amendment,” a best-seller. 

The Independent Institute is sponsoring a “book bomb” for this purpose. A similar “book bomb” made Dr. Ron Paul’s recent book a best-seller.

All media outlets should interview Mr. Halbrook whenever they cover the gun issue. Pushing Mr. Halbrook’s book onto the best-seller list could make that happen. Sign-up to participate at the “book bomb” website.

New World Order guide for Dummies

February 8, 2009

“I haven’t found a better way that sums up our true enemy and what we the people need to face, than in this video. This is happening to the world at this very moment. This is why you seriously have to consider voting for a third party candidate. This is why you have to seriously consider the reality that it won’t matter if everybody voted for a 3rd party candidate because these people would either rig the election or assassinate the candidate. This is why you have to seriously consider getting more politically active and start spreading the word and hitting pavement. This is why you have to seriously consider loving the people around you and realizing your enemy thrives off of, (and has helped create), our social divisions. Political divisions, race divisions, and class divisions. The numbers vary but these global elite thugs only number about 6000. This is why you have to seriously consider how easy it would be to send all of these elite criminal parasites to their death sentences. If  we as a people, (well informed & well armed), come together. It’s simple really.

(And this “well armed” thing is not about being some gun-nut, (for my Northern friends). It’s about a right that protects you and your family if your government turns tyrannical, (which it has if you take your blinders off). It is only going to get worse if we keep silent like little subservient surfs. This is why the criminal Obama administration is pushing to take your guns away. In every country that has baned fire arms or has implemented serious gun restrictions like England & Australia, their crime always increases. This statistic has always happened throughout history…do your homework. They are scared shit-less that we the people are waking-up to what is really going on in our country. I can’t stress enough of the importance to make your voice heard against our criminally insane, totally twisted tyrannical government when it comes to your right to bear arms.)

“These two suckers want your guns and it ain’t for good reasons either.

A gun is a tool… like a car lets say. Some idiots who own cars drive recklessly  and put other people lives at risk. If they are arrested they may loose their license  and have their car taken away. But maybe, if we take the cars away from all people whether they are responsible with their cars or not we can avoid any unforeseen tragedies. Maybe, not the best example because gun ownership is a right not a privilege, so, there is no need for a license either but you get the fuckin’ point. If you want to avoid some tragedies why not vote for a 3rd party candidate who would push for reform of the C.I.A. The same C.I.A. who funnels in illegal weapons and drugs into inner cities. Don’t be a liberal sucker. I’m about as liberal as they come but I’m no sucker.  And these two chumps are suckers for the man.”

“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act of depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.”    – Mohandas Gandhi

The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so. 

– Adolph Hitler

 

Every country that has banned privately-owned firearms (Canada, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, etc.) has first passed laws requiring the registration of all firearms.  Once they have them registered, then they know exactly where to go and forcibly confiscate the weapons.  Our military forces have been training for this since 1993.  The first thing in 2009 to be introduced in the House is the gun registration act of 2009 (in pdf form below). 

Martial law was reportedly declared in Dexter, Missouri, this morning (Jan 29, 2009), under the guise of preventing looting following storm damage and power outages.  Since that hasn’t been done in other and worse previous storms, there or elsewhere, the only explanation is that they are conditioning the public to get used to martial law whenever “they” say so, plus this gives military troops and law enforcement practice and training. 

Many of us have been sounding the warning, for years, that this was coming.  Sadly and pitifully, the most frequent response we have gotten has been accusations regarding the reflective nature of our pointed headwear.  My take on all this is that the men behind the curtain had Bush-Clinton-Bush to set the table for alien imposter Obama, and he is about to serve us our dinner. 

The excrement is beginning to hit the actuator on the circular motion air circulation device. 

How many of us will this convert into criminals?

Here is the first FEDERAL bill introduced in the house that mandates licensing for all firearms owners… 
If it passes and is signed into law: 

You will have to carry a photo ID firearms license. 
A training class is required to be licensed. 
Disclosure of your storage method is required for license. 
A thumb print is required for license. 
Every sale recorded by the federal government. 
If you move, and don’t tell the Attorney General within 60 days, you are a criminal. 
If a firearm is stolen and you don’t report it, you are a criminal. 
There will be no grandfathered firearms.  If you do not obtain a   
license and report every firearm you currently own, you are a criminal. 
There will be a license fee and a fee for the “services” provided at   
purchase time. 
Licenses must be renewed every 5 years.

See Through It

January 17, 2009

“Any biological, chemical, or nuclear attack would be carried out by our own government agencies. Read “real” history books and declassified Government documents to find out how our government has staged “false-flag” terrorist attacks to rally the people behind wars like Vietnam. I guess we will have to wait about 40 years for the US governments declassified documents on the September 11th false-flag terrorist attacks to come out.

How Hitler’s false-flag “fire” rallied the German people behind his dumb ass. History is repeating itself because so many people are living in a enormous state of denial or they just live in TV-Land or they are just looking out for their own ass. Whatever the case there is always hope that these people will wake up to the fact that the world powers that be are leading the human race into an Orwellian state. You can’t deny the power of a persons own primitive needs for freedom. If something happened in this country for the need of an uprising, (and I pray it doesn’t), if only 1% of the American population came together behind a good cause than anything that got in their way would be totally crushed. Just by the sheer numbers. Like most of the information you get from the tube….. the lies about Gun Ownership in America have been out there for a reason. Check out,  http://gunowners.org/  

Believe me… I’m from up North and I was taught that you were a coward to have the need to own a gun. Guns are bad, bad, bad. Although, most of the people that had guns were criminals using their guns to profit from crimes they carried out. Your being lied to like many other things. Your family and your gun is the last line of defense towards everything that is good and decent about this country. Just keep an eye out for the Gun Grabbing mentality of the upcoming Obama administration.

MORE Examples of documented ‘False Flag Terrorism’

B07329 / Sun, 10 Jul 2005 14:20:17 / Intelligence

After reading the article detailing the proposed and existing oil pipeline routes in the Middle East athttp://szamko.gnn.tv/blogs/17155/Pipeline_Time then consider the following examples of “false flag terrorist operations”… where governments fund, set-up, and execute their own covert terror operations and blame scapegoat nations or “alleged” terror cells like Al Qaeda to ,muster support for further war (to ultimately dominate world economies through control of the world oil supplies).

The point being that world citizens are not only the cannon fodder in the slaughter…but end up paying the tab through increased interest fees and taxation by corporate politicians for their war expenditures.

Nikita Chegulain, a former undercover agent of the antiterrorist division of the FSB, said he possessed documentary evidence that proved that highly explosive hexogen was withdrawn from military bases and distributed secretely to regional organisations. He incriminates top government officials in the coverup; independent investigations have so far been blocked.

The panel brought attention to already known facts about a foiled explosion in Ryazan on 22 September 1999. The FSB was forced to admit that it had planted the device, when phone calls amongst its agents were intercepted. Yet, simultaneously, head of the FSBPatrushev claimed that the explosives were actually sugar and that this was part of a so-called security exercise.

This sharply contradicts the version of the local police force which had determined that the substance was hexogen and that the detonator equipment was real and set for 5.30am © “the clock was ticking”. Four explosives experts from Britain and France recently examined the available evidence from the Ryazan incident and concluded that the bomb was authentic.

Terrorism expert says at least one person tipped off to London attacks

Terrorism expert Tommy Preston of Preston Global in Frankfort, Kentucky, said sources in the intelligence community reported that at least one person in London, England was warned of Thursday morning’s terrorist attacks moments before the initial blast. Preston, citing sources in the intelligence community, said former Israeli Prime Minister and current Finance Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was in London this morning for an economic forum. “Just before the first blast, Netanyahu got a call from the Israeli Embassy telling him to stay in his hotel room. The hotel is located next to the subway station where the first attack occurred and he did stay put and shortly after that, there was the explosion,” Preston said.

12.) Another taboo subject is the longevity of the United States as both a terrorist state and a haven for terrorists. That the US is the only nation on record to have been condemned by the World Court for international terrorism (in Nicaragua ), and has vetoed a UN Security Council resolution calling on governments to observe international law, is unmentionable.

13.) America as Terrorist Haven: “A chief terrorist with long ties to US intelligence agencies is seeking asylum in the United States. The FBI has evidence linking him to an airline bombing that killed 73 people. We’re talking about the notorious militant Cuban exile: Luis Posada Carriles.”

“Though the terrorist’s presence has been an open secret in Miami, neither President George W. Bush nor Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has ordered a manhunt. The U.S. press corps has been largely silent as well.

The reason is that this terrorist, Luis Posada Carriles, was a CIA-trained Cuban whose long personal war against Fidel Castro’s government is viewed sympathetically by the two Bush brothers and their father. When it comes to the Bush family, Posada is the epitome of the old saying that “one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.”

The Bush administration – which has imprisoned Jose Padilla and other alleged Muslim “enemy combatants” without trial – has taken a far more lenient approach toward the 77-year-old Posada, who is still wanted in Venezuela for the bombing of a Cubana Airlines plane in 1976 that killed 73 people. Posada also has admitted involvement in a deadly hotel bombing campaign in Cuba in 1997.”

Consortium_News , April 25, 2005

“A Cuban exile who has waged a campaign of bombings and assassination attempts aimed at toppling Fidel Castro says that his efforts were supported financially for more than a decade by the Cuban-American leaders of one of America’s most influential lobbying groups.

The exile, Luis Posada Carriles, said he organized a wave of bombings in Cuba last year at hotels, restaurants and discotheques, killing an Italian tourist and alarming the Cuban Government. Posada was schooled in demolition and guerrilla warfare by the Central Intelligence Agency in the 1960’s.

14.) In California, in the eighties, John Pilger (investigative journalist and writer) met four Vietnamese who had been assassins in America’s Operation Phoenix; one of them ran a fast food drive-in. He seemed a contended man. What all these people have in common, apart from their history of terrorism, is that they were either working directly for the US government or carrying out the dirty work of American policies. Operation Phoenix, for example, devised, funded and run by the CIA, was responsible for up to 50,000 murders. He states:

“Much was made of al-Qa’ida’s training camps in Afghanistan, the target of American bombers. But these were kindergartens compared with the world’s leading university of terrorism atFort_Benning in Georgia. Known until recently as the School of the Americas, it trained some 60,000 Latin American soldiers, policemen, paramilitaries and intelligence agents. Forty per cent of the Cabinet ministers who served in the genocidal regimes of Lucas Garcia, Rios Montt and Mefia Victores in Guatemala are graduates.

In 1993, the UN Truth Commission for El Salvador named the army officers who had committed the worst atrocities of the civil war; two-thirds of them had been trained at Fort Benning. They included Roberto D’Aubisson, the leader of the death squads and the murderers of Archbishop Oscar Romero and a group of Jesuit priests. In Chile, the school’s graduates ran Pinochet’s secret police and three principal concentration camps. In 1996, the US government was forced to release copies of the school’s training manuals. For aspiring terrorists, these recommended blackmail, torture, execution and the arrest of witnesses’ relatives.”

Conclusion:

I have come to understand this form of government we endure is a “plutocracy” (government by the wealthy) who lie, cheat, assassinate, instigate acts of terrorism and then blamescapegoat_nations and support/fund terrorist regimes anddictatorships as long as their dictators dance to their corporate tune.

It does not take an entire government to be involved in instigating acts of terrorism any more than, say, it does not take all the bank employees to know what the head bank manager is planning in his board meetings. That is whyFBICIA, and firemen who blow the whistle on head office wrongdoing…are muzzled, threatened, fired, demoted, ignored and harassed purposely. I am saying that when someone sincere and with integrity comes across evidence which shows possible corruption by head office, part of the cover-up is to discredit these individuals.It is time to seriously share this vital information…in hopes that an informed public might just refrain from rallying to the war cries of the weapons/military/industrial complex.

The clock is ticking on the Second Amendment.

Illinois Democrat Introduces Gun Tracking Bill

rushf Illinois Democrat Bobby Rush has his way, gun owners in America will be required to submit to the federal government a photo, thumb print and mental heath records. Rush’s proposed bill H.R. 45, also known as “Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009,” will make it illegal to possess a “qualifying firearm,” specifically any firearm that takes an ammunition clip, without a license.

If passed, the law will amend the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act and prohibit a person from possessing a firearm unless that person has been issued a firearm license. It would establish and maintain a firearm injury information clearinghouse with the Attorney General. It should be noted that Obama’s proposed attorney general, Eric Holder, is a notorious gun-grabber.

The very name of the bill reveals what Mr. Rush and the Democrats think of gun ownership and the Second Amendment. “On the afternoon of May 10, 2007, Blair Holt, a junior at Julian High School in Chicago, was killed on a public bus riding home from school when he used his body to shield a girl who was in the line of fire after a young man boarded the bus and started shooting,” text from the bill states. The bill argues that children dying from gun violence is a legitimate reason for the government to monitor gun ownership and place restrictions on the Second Amendment.

As Drew Zahn notes, “H.R. 45 is a resurfacing of 2007’s H.R. 2666, which contained much of the same language and was co-sponsored by 15 other representatives and Barack Obama’s current chief of staff, Rahm Emmanuel. H.R. 2666 was assigned to the House Judiciary committee, where no action was taken.”

In 2000, Barak Obama cosponsored a bill that would have limited the purchase of handguns to one per month. “According to the 1998 Illinois State Legislative National Political Awareness Test of July 2, 1998, Obama also supports the banning of all semi-automatic weapon sales and transfers,” Associated Content reported in March of last year. “The only reason to try to ban a whole class of gun, with such a wide stroke, is to start the progression of banning all guns eventually.”

Now that Democrats control Congress and the executive, they will aggressively move to ban gun ownership. “In the 20th century, the Second Amendment has become an anachronism,” explains the Brady Center. “The rights guaranteed by the Constitution have never been absolute… The vast majority of the American people support reasonable gun control laws and view them as necessary to reduce the level of gun violence in this country. The framers of the Constitution would surely agree.”

In fact, Thomas Jefferson would strongly disagree with Brady, the Democrats, and no shortage of allegedly conservative Republicans. “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms,” wrote Jefferson, quoting the criminologist Cesare Beccaria, “disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one.”

Brady and the Democrats have deliberately distorted the meaning of the Second Amendment in order to take firearms away from the people. Democrat Bobby Rush and his ilk are shamelessly exploiting the young victim Blair Holt in order to dismantle our right to self defense, not only from thugs but from the government itself. As the framers understood, the Second Amendment is primarily about resisting tyrannical government, not hunting or target shooting.

Rep. Bobby Rush and the Democrats who support Brady and other gun-grabbers should read Samuel Adams’ Debates and Proceedings in the Convention of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Adams wrote that the “Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of The United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”

Adams obviously understood something the gun-grabbers refuse to consider — liberty of the press and rights of conscience are intimately entwined with the right of peaceable citizens to keep firearms.
