Obama Admin Confirms They Will Undermine Congress and Pass GUN CONTROL by Executive Action VERY SOON

Obama may have been elected as the US President, but the job he really wanted was DICTATOR. One question – if he does try this, is there anyone in the US House of Representatives with the guts to file Impeachment charges? Or can they get a bill to block funding, with enough votes to override a veto?

Washington Post on gun violence …

Kudos to my wife for sending me the link to this article.  THANKS!

Here is something I thought was news-worthy.  Not the statistics reported, though if you’re paying attention, you probably already new them.  No, the thing that is news worthy is that the Washington Post published the article.

For the benefit of readers overseas, there is a political divide over gun rights in the United States.  The liberal faction absolutely hates guns, and those who own them, and works tirelessly to eliminate them from our country.  The conservative faction sees guns as a matter of personal defense, and the last line of defense against the abuse of power by our elected leaders.  Finally, in all honesty, there are the criminals who do not follow any laws, know they will always be able to get/make guns, and unrepentantly do as they please wherever they feel safe from resistance.

The Washington Post is a mostly liberal news publication based in the Washington, DC, area.

So, with that background, you can see why it is worth noticing that the Washington Post ran an article with the headline, “Gun Violence Declining, Except In Gun-Free Zones”.

But, it is also pretty easy to see where the BBC’s opinions fall –

Donald Trump on the 2nd Amendment …

I’m not really paying much attention to politics at the moment – most of it is more “political theater” than actual governance.

However, someone recently pointed this out to me, and after reading it, I thought it worthy of sharing. It is the official website of the Donald Trump presidential campaign, speaking specifically about the 2nd Amendment.

UN Small Arms Treaty . . .

Negotiations are underway in Mexico, even as you read this, to use the UN Small Arms Treaty as a vehicle to give President Obama all the gun-control powers he’s been craving.

If you care about this, please sign a petition aimed at your Congress officials, to pressure them to fight against it.

Privately owned firearms . . .

In the wake of so many recent reports about illegal immigrants (even one who had previously been deported, and was now living in a “sanctuary city”) killing people, I thought a look at the other extreme would be in order.

The drunken thug hollered threats at the parishioner as she stepped out of her church in Boulder, CO on the evening of July 30.

Police say Heriberto Haro-Luna, inebriated and out of control, confronted his estranged wife in the church parking lot, grabbing her by the neck and threatening to slit her throat.

As this confrontation exploded, an employee of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church was walking to his car –- with his concealed handgun.

Haro-Luna rapidly put the woman in a choke-hold and viciously stabbed her.

As she gasped her final prayers, the church employee drew his handgun and sprang into action. The assailant fled and was quickly apprehended by police.

Thanks to the quick action of the armed church employee (he has not yet been identified), the 41-year old woman is expected to make a full recovery.

Sadly, this kind of attack is not an isolated incident.

Less than two months ago, the infamous massacre at a Charleston, SC Bible study left nine people dead and even more injured.

No one was able to effectively stop the shooter as he unloaded round after round into the defenseless people.

You see, South Carolina law forbids guns in places of worship without express consent from the church’s owner.

The Emanuel AME Church opted to be a “gun-free zone.”

The pastor, Clementa Pinckney, also served as a SC State Senator and was a staunch supporter of gun control, regularly opposing concealed carry and self-defense legislation.

In 2011, Pinckney voted against a bill that would’ve allowed gun owners to bring their guns to church.

So on the evening of June 17, 2015, when the crazed shooter brought his gun to the Bible study illegally and opened fire, the law-abiding parishioners were sitting ducks. Tragically, Senator Pinckney was among the slain victims.

Yet, after this senseless shooting, anti-gun talking heads on every major media outlet parroted rhetoric about how gun control could’ve prevented this.

The only thing that could’ve prevented the Charleston, SC massacre would’ve been a good guy with a gun in that church.

And as disheartening as these “gun free zone” shootings are, I am very glad to report that similar incidents are stopped by armed citizens on a regular basis, saving hundreds of lives.

Take the incident in Texas, where a pro-gun pastor proved he’s nobody’s victim.

On July 28 of this year, a would-be robber kicked down the door of the Church of New Beginnings in Baytown, TX with Pastor Benny Holmes inside.

Holmes had a gun, so he was able to defend himself and hold the intruder until police arrived.

It isn’t just pastors who have been known to save the day, though.

In Boiling Springs, SC, a shotgun-wielding man interrupted Sunday service by kicking in the door of the pro-gun Southside Freewill Baptist Church.

Stepping into the church, the intruder brandished his shotgun and took aim at the pastor, only to be met by a parishioner’s handgun pointed right back at him.

Upon seeing the churchgoer’s handgun, the intruder froze.

This brief moment allowed several members of the congregation to seize the thug’s shotgun, disarming him and preventing a potential tragedy.

And of course, one of the best examples of a shooting stopped in mid-course by an armed citizen happened a few years ago at New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO.

On December 9, 2007, Jeanne Assam ended what could have become one of the worst mass shootings in American history, saving possibly hundreds of lives.

The church was the second stop for Matthew Murray, a madman on a murderous rampage through local worship centers.

First, Murray went to the Youth With a Mission office, a training center for international missionaries, in Denver, CO – a city so harsh on guns, even open carry isn’t legal.

Entering the YWAM office, he asked to stay the night and after being declined, the 24-year old opened fire with a handgun, killing two people before slipping out the door.

12 hours and 65 miles later, Murray struck again, this time at Colorado Spring’s New Life Church.

As soon as he reached the parking lot, Murray opened fire, killing two teenage girls and wounding three others.

Stepping past his five victims, Murray moved towards the church, shooting out the glass doors, then walked down the hallway towards the congregation with over 1,000 rounds on his person, along with 3 firearms and a grenade.

Thankfully Jeanne Assam, a member of the congregation, was carrying her handgun that day and had volunteered to serve as church security. As Murray entered the building, Assam returned fire, stopping him in his tracks and saving the lives of the 7,000 people worshipping inside.

Police and officials later confirmed that the death toll would almost certainly have been in the hundreds without Ms. Assam’s brave actions.

Time and time again, law-abiding citizens exercising their Second Amendment rights have saved countless lives and helped serve justice – often without a single shot being fired.

Stories like these are proof that guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens save lives.

Yet, after every mass shooting, the gun control zealots bombard the media with their message that stricter gun laws are the answer.

But if the gun-grabbers had their way and the law-abiding were disarmed by so-called “gun free” zones, there would’ve been nothing between the madmen and their victims.

I shudder to think about what would’ve become of so many innocent churchgoers had law-abiding citizens been stripped of their firearms.

After all, if someone is willing to break God’s law and commit murder in a house of worship, why would they obey state or federal laws not to have a gun?

You and I know that logic just doesn’t add up.

Concealed weapons work….

The following is from an email I received from the National Association for Gun Rights ….

__________________________________________________

Imagine you’re standing in line at the sporting goods store when multiple armed burglars storm in demanding guns and money.

You have only seconds to act.

You draw your gun and stop the crime, defending your life and the lives of the other customers.

But when the police arrive, instead of being touted as a hero, you’re arrested for not having a concealed carry permit.

This exact scenario took place in Topeka, Kansas recently, but luckily, just days before it happened, Constitutional Carry became law in Kansas.

So when Joey Tapley — who didn’t have a Concealed Carry Permit -– found himself confronted with three armed thugs stealing rifles and cash from a sporting goods store, he drew his gun without fear of legal repercussion.

Tapley’s quick thinking stopped the burglars and saved lives. And all of the suspects were apprehended without a single shot being fired.

But if this incident happened just two weeks earlier — or in any one of the forty-four states without Constitutional Carry — this law-abiding hero would be behind bars, facing criminal charges!

At the National Association for Gun Rights, we firmly believe the Second Amendment is the only permit law-abiding citizens should ever need. Period.

The good news is that Constitutional Carry is starting to take off in states all across the nation!

Two states — Maine and Kansas — removed the shackles of fingerprint databases, statist licensing schemes, and hefty permit fees this year.

These new constitutional carry laws allow law-abiding citizens who are legally eligible to purchase a firearm, to carry their gun, concealed, for self-defense without government “permission.”

And scenarios like the one in Kansas prove it’s working.

After the incident Tapley stated, “That’s why Kansas made the law. So citizens can carry and protect themselves and others.”

The fact is, gun owners have come a long way since the 1980s when your right-to-carry was denied in nearly every state, and the crime rate was through the roof.

As restrictive “maybe-issue“ carry laws gave way to “shall issue“ carry laws the media’s anti-gun narrative fell apart.

As gun restrictions have been deleted, the unmistakable conclusion is that when the government-mandated barriers to your Second Amendment rights are removed, crime goes down and rights are restored.

Vermont, the only state never to restrict the carrying of firearms in the first place has always been ranked at the top of the safest states.

Ten years ago, the idea of “Vermont carry” was seen by establishment politicians in both parties as an outrageous and unrealistic goal. Even the establishment gun lobby opposed the idea.

Because of the activism of National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters like you, all that has changed.

*** In 2003 Alaska became the second Constitutional Carry state.

*** In 2010 NAGR-backed efforts to pass Constitutional Carry in Arizona and Wyoming were successful.

*** In 2013 Arkansas passed a promising, yet disputed, Constitutional Carry law.

*** This year, after intense lobby efforts by NAGR members and supporters, Kansas and Maine both passed Constitutional Carry, and Mississippi lawmakers were forced to adopt a “bag” carry variant.

That’s not all.

Lawmakers in New Hampshire, West Virginia, South Dakota and Utah are finding it harder and harder to ignore NAGR supporters. Each has come very close to passing Constitutional Carry in recent years.

Even Montana and Idaho, which allow Constitutional Carry outside city limits, are under increased pressure to expand it statewide.

Finally, Constitutional Carry has been introduced and backed by NAGR in Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Iowa, Indiana, Minnesota, Michigan, Nevada. . . and may be coming soon to your state.

In some states politicians are actually competing with each other to sponsor Constitutional Carry and are eager to work with NAGR to usher in this next step for gun owners.

So, where is the one (type of) place in Kansas where a law-abiding citizen still can’t carry a weapon – whether openly or concealed?  Federal Property, like the VA Hospitals where most of our best-trained weapons handlers can be found.  Military veterans.

Get Ready . . .

My guess was on the mark – Loretta Lynch was confirmed Thursday morning as the next Atty. Gen of the United States.  Basically, this means not only will nothing we didn’t like about Holder be changed, but you can expect civil asset forfeiture to be more broadly abused and that Holder will not be held accountable for any scandal that occurred under his command.

If we still had a Constitution yesterday, we won’t Monday morning when she is sworn in.  She fully supports Obama acting like a king, dictator, or tyrant and sees Congress as an unnecessary relic that impedes “progress”.

Oh, and one more thing:  she also fully supports Obama’s immigration policies, which will bring a lot more people with anti-USA attitudes into the country to become citizens.  Citizens with an agenda to make the USA more like the 3rd world countries they left.

Political intrigue, since . . .

Anyone who knows me knows that I’ve tried to describe myself as a “centerist” – I’m not republican or democrat, and borrow some ideas from both.  I like fiscal responsibility – anyone who’s ever had to worry about keeping a roof over their head, or faced bankruptcy, knows that if you owe money, you loose control over your life.  I like social freedom – as long as the only person hurt directly by another’s actions is the one who makes the action, I don’t think there should be a law against it.  I think equality is a wonderful idea – as long as it applies equally to everyone of every ethnicity, income level, faith, or gender.  I think any organized faith that advocates harming those who think differently should be outlawed. I think there need to be rewards for clever innovation, and if those who are innovative enough become self-made billionaires while the masses toil away at $8/hr – nobody should have a right to complain as long as the billionaires answer to the same basic laws as everyone else.

So, it might surprise you to learn that I’m not paying a lot of attention to the news anymore.  Oh, I might spend about 5 minutes scanning headlines now and then, but I have quit hovering and commenting.  I learned something that made the whole concept repulsive.

A good friend of mine turned me on to a documentary called “JFK to 911” which goes into exhaustive detail about why every conspiracy theory alive today about the JFK assassination has at least one point wrong – the number of shooters.  He uses basic ballistics and forensic science to show you exactly where the fatal shot came from – and tells you the name of the shooter.

If that were all that you could get from the documentary, it would be worth watching it.  But it is far more.  He names names of political power players, criminal cabals, and cogs in the government machine who all had reason to want JFK dead – and were all in Dallas, Texas the day before Air Force One landed there with JFK.  He tells you what their reasons were.

Then he jumps back to World War One, and shows you how the power brokers got so powerful that they could destroy entire countries out of a desire for profits.  He brings it forward and shows how the wars in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq have all been related; tied into the same group making more profits.  He also exposes exactly how they go about maximizing profit by supplying BOTH SIDES of every major conflict in the last 100 years.

What really has me turned off from interest in politics, though, is the fact that the USA has become so polarized around 2 major factions – and it’s all smoke and mirrors.  Ever since Julius Caesar, leaders have known that the easiest ways to control “the masses” are to divide and conquer, or unite against a common enemy.  Looking back over US history, it’s easy to see both strategies have been in full force ever since the Civil War.

Since one particular “global manipulator” has a personal net worth estimated at near $40 TRILLION, and several others are worth significantly more than the published estimates, it’s safe to say that individual liberty is an idea that died in 1864, and only another Bolshevik revolution (on a global scale) could possibly bring it back to life.

I don’t like YouTube, but if you don’t care if you use it or not, the documentary is available there.
