The Left Is Gambling With Your Rights

We have been watching the left’s reaction to the tragic Las Vegas shootings on Sunday, October 1st where 59 lives have now been lost and more than 500 are injured. We are horrified that some mentally ill person or some group of Sickos orchestrated this mass killing. President Trump seeks the logical route while Democratic Congressional House Members have already used this situation to increase their face time on network news outlets.

Within hours of the incident, Hillary Clinton seized the opportunity to politicize this tragedy targeting the NRA. Then it was Minority House leader Nancy Pelosi taking advantage of the situation. “Never let a good crisis go to waste”. The bodies were still warm….. literally.

Democrats tend to prey on the emotions of their constituents and the Main Stream Media likes that tactic, as well. Logically, we know a gun is an inanimate object, just like a butcher knife, a static vehicle, or a gallon of gasoline. Any of those could be weaponized by someone with bad intent. But the weapon gets the blame because emotions get in the way of logical common sense and that is the narrative we are fed over and over and over again.

Trained marksmen run toward the sound of gunfire. Others run from it. An armed citizen has protection from the “pure evil” we have seen time and time again. Without a way to protect ourselves and our families, we are sitting ducks. We refuse to rely on law enforcement for everything.

I’ve written a lot about the 2nd Amendment and provided examples illustrating why gun control is unnecessary because it doesn’t work. In fact, there is direct correlation between increased gun ownership and a decrease in gun homicide. Democrats can read these stats just as well as you and I can. So what’s the disconnect? Politics. Liberal Democrats would like to see the US Constitution abolished.

Today, there is a knee-jerk reaction to ban and outlaw “bump stocks”. “Bump stocks” were found on at least one of the weapons at the Mandalay Bay. “Bump stocks” aid in rapid firing of certain weapons like an AR-15. See below.

This massacre is still being investigated. There is much discussion by military professionals and law enforcement (an undercurrent) that this was not a one man job. In fact this slaughter was most likely orchestrated and most likely used as a political means to an end. BLM and Antifa claimed it looks like the work of a more credible source. It’s possible, right?

“Trust, but verify” ~ Ronald Reagan

We are in for months of diversion tactics to incrementally eat away at out 2nd Amendment rights. The NRA and President Trump have stated they are open to additional regulations on “bump stocks”, but that does not change the overall debate.

“Scare tactics, lies, threats and Hollywood will be used to further steal your liberty.”

Beware! Knee jerk reactions to crimes like this don’t work. Their intent is to politicize and prey on the emotions of the ignorant for their own profit. But this kind of lowly behavior comes at a cost… Your Liberty!

My “Call To Action” is to research and read about your Constitutional rights. Start by reading the US Constitution. Know that the 2nd Amendment is in place primarily to protect you and me from a rogue government.

Liberal Fear Mongering Is A Weapon

The sole letter to the editor published in the Kinston Free Press in the Sunday, July 23rd edition entitled “How to have less crime in North Carolina” raised a few Red Flags. In his letter, Mr. Pearson submits that young people have guns “many of which are stolen or given to them by elders.” He then offered up a way to catch these perpetrators, “young criminals” who are “getting away with it”. He suggests a minimum age to purchase ammunition be set at 20 years of age, that retailers be required to make available to law enforcement the name, age, address, type of ammo and quantity.  He says our legislature and governor should take action.

Red FlagSee any red flags yet? The first one, of course, is an infringement on our Second Amendment rights by limiting a person old enough to go to war and defend his or her country from buying ammunition in the States. Furthermore, to have ammo buyers submitted into yet another layered database is just another infringement on privacy. Current North Carolina law does not require a license for the sale of ammunition, require sellers of ammunition to maintain a record of the purchasers, or require a license to purchase or possess ammunition.

Ammo Load

From the Center For Disease Control statistics, heart disease is the number one killer in these united States with around 633,000 dying each year. Cancer comes in second at around 560,000. You may think it bizarre, but how about if we required retailers to check your identification and have reports ready on how much unhealthy food you buy at the market or how many cigarettes you purchase? You say, “Well that’s not the same thing. It’s my right to eat the way I want and to smoke.” But fat and cigarettes kill far more people than guns.  According to the CDC, in 2015 there were over 36,000 gun related deaths, many of which were self inflicted.

That means the chances of you eating yourself to death are about 17.5 times higher than death by firearm.Fat Kid

I submit we should not legislate more law. We are already overburdened with regulation. I submit that each child deserves a mother and a father to raise them. Most of our problems today stem directly from irresponsible parenting. Guns get a bad rap because they are easy prey. False narratives created by main stream media, along with liberal fear mongering, continue to pad the pockets of anti-gun special interest groups and indoctrinate the ignorant with liberal logic.

People are afraid of things they don’t understand. Don’t be that person.

They Are Coming For Your Ballot!

After cyber attacks on a few state election board websites the Obama administration may be forcing it’s hand in a big way. This is quite dangerous for all Americans and not to be taken lightly. The federal government has no jurisdiction over election proceedings. This duty is left to our sovereign states. But what do you know, right? The Obama regime has issued the following statement:

“We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid,”… “There’s a vital national interest in our election process, so I do think we need to consider whether it should be considered by my department and others critical infrastructure,” said Homeland Security Sec. Jeh Johnson

hack the vote

The key words here are “critical infrastucture”…. they are trying to make the case that the states can’t pull off just one more election without help from the federal government. So Obama, the caped crusader, and his Democratic regime are rushing in to “save” the nation from “those bad old hackers” in the name of Cyber security.  This comes two months before the most crucial and defining general election in the history of our nation.

Opinion? For DHS to come in and say “this is what we’re going to do” could be seen as police state activity.

In fact it, the general perception is the Obama regime will do anything to help Hillary win in November…. even forcing control over and rigging this election!

The only legal way the feds could step in and take over election process would be at a state’s request or Congress pass a law. But since there is no time for that and this rogue administration does not respect the law any more than they do you or me, expect another forthcoming “executive order”.

bitch hillary 1

We’ve watched an unqualified vindictive POTUS drive this country into the ground over the last 8 years. If you’ve had enough of the incompetence, his globalist approach to immigration and refugee resettlement, his unwillingness to call out radical Islamic, his repetitive lies…… well you ain’t seen nothing yet. Let Hillary Clinton win this election and we are DONE for as a sovereign nation. Your 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights will be taken. She has already made that promise. This is going to be a real gun fight, friends.

A Political Litmus Test

The new buzz word is “Conservative” and a lot of people claim to be one.  Some believe in a sliding scale of conservatism but we just don’t understand that thinking.  That’s sort of like being a “little bit pregnant”.  So what is a Conservative?  One definition, when used as a noun, is this:

Conservative ~ A person who is averse to change and holds to traditional values and attitudes, typically in relation to politics.

The word is often used very loosely.  For example, claiming to be a social liberal yet fiscally “conservative” sends confusing messages.  Supporting fiscal responsibility and promoting reduction in the size of government are conservative principles.  But, if you simultaneously support Planned Parenthood, same-sex marriage, or tax funded social programs that only enslave the recipients you fail the “Conservative Litmus Test”.

Liberal Progressive Democrats claim Planned Parenthood, which is, by majority, federally subsidized by your tax dollars, is a support function for women’s health.  In reality, the main function of Planned Parenthood is performing abortions.  Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood and is lauded by liberal Democrats like Hillary Clinton as a hero.  In reality, Margaret Sanger promoted murder and eugenics which carries on today through Planned Parenthood. We are all paying for the murder of the unborn; like it or not.

Aborted

“[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.” ~ Margaret Sanger

Sanger and KKK

Pictured is Margaret Sanger addressing the Women’s Auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan.  Ironically, 95% of black voters supported a Democrat, Barack Hussein Obama, for President in 2012.

Churchgoers that register as Democrats, but claim to be Christians give support to Margaret Sanger’s philosophy; like it or not.   Most voters are ignorant to the Democratic Platform but it is the antithesis to Christianity.  Jesus didn’t condone abortion or selective sterilization in his teachings.  So, it is through our ignorance that we fail to halt the Liberal Progressive movement.

Progressivism is a disease propagated by our compliance, our meekness, our fear of being adversely socially or economically impacted, or ostracized if we take the moral high ground.

We would argue that the moral high ground is an honorable place to dwell.  Roughly 57 million Protestant evangelicals are registered to vote.  But, in 2012, only about 30 million made it to the polls for the Presidential general election.  In 2016, if we don’t show up at the polls, we will lose our Republic.  It’s all in the numbers and Hillary Clinton’s liberal progressive Marxist cronies can’t wait to take control of our country.  Our Constitution means absolutely nothing to the left.  Their plan is to remove our 2nd Amendment rights by disarming the public.  Once accomplished, with no way to protect ourselves, our 1st Amendment rights will be snuffed out. Recently we have seen that Obama aims to leave office and a legacy of illegally mandating gun control laws.  Read more HERE and HERE

The “Conservative Litmus Test” is this.  When trying to discern the nature of a political argument, individual, or policy, simply ask yourself if it or they support the following:

  • Right to life?
  • Marriage between one man and one woman?
  • Free enterprise and free market capitalism?
  • Strong national defense?
  • Deregulation and reduction in the size of government?
  • Traditional moral values?
  • The Constitution of the United States of America in full?

Hillary Clinton is an enemy to all of the above.  If you think the last 7 years have been tough, just you wait.  We must educate voters and get them to the polls.  We must wake people up to the fact that the government is not their master.  We are the master of our government.  Liberal Progressives like Hillary Clinton think the American public is stupid.  This is not a game as is evidenced by this one very telling quote.

“I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision.  I am really in awe of her, there are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life.”  ~  Hillary Rodham Clinton

Hillary Clinton believes, like Margaret Sanger, that she has the right to slaughter the innocent unborn.  She is counting on the liberal media to sell gun control, but mute any discussion on abortion.  Roughly 30,000 deaths occur each year in the U.S. by firearms, two-thirds of which are suicide.  In contrast, there are well over 1,200,000 abortions performed each year in the U.S.  That’s a 40:1 ration of death by abortion to death by gun.

That means abortion kills 40 times more people each year than guns. This illustrates the fact that progressive liberals like Hillary Clinton care 40 times more about disarming citizens than they do about murdering unborn children.

Hillary Is Here

Hillary and company want to control your choices like the right to defend yourself.  She has no respect for your personal liberty.  Educate your compliant friends and pass this information on.  The quality of life our children and grandchildren will have is dependent upon the action(s) we take Right Now.

A “Free” Education On Losing Our Liberty

The leftist progressives and their POTUS Puppet, B. Hussein Obama, are gearing up in a big way for 2016.  Mid January you can expect a few major assaults our 2nd Amendment rights.

Emperor Obama will issue a decree across the lands (by executive order) that everyone “in the business” of selling firearms will be required to perform background checks. Federally licensed dealers are already required to run background checks through the FBI….. but what if Johnny wants to sell Sally a handgun or by some other private means?  Roughly 40% of the guns in America are currently bought and sold privately.

Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton is all for making it more difficult to exercise our 2nd Amendment rights. Obama aims to go out with a bang and push this agenda to the hilt. He’ll be remembered as not only the worst President fiscally, driving our national debt over 19 Trillion before leaving office, but also the most abusive when it comes to trashing our Constitutional rights.  He just doesn’t respect the our founding documents, the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND.  He has no regard whatsoever for the citizens of the United States….. none. The National Rifle Association (NRA) believes that this or any move to further the gun control effort will eventually lead to confiscation or banning certain weapons and ammunition.

But anyone paying attention is aware of the invalidity of this liberal argument for gun control. Taking guns from law-abiding citizens doesn’t curb crime.  It makes us more vulnerable. We have posted statistic after statistic to prove death by firearm is pretty low on the totem pole of societal problems. The key word in gun control is CONTROL.

Take away the common man’s means of protection and the government has complete control of the common man.  And that’s what this is really about. 

California just passed legislation that will go into effect January 1, 2016 making it very easy to seize your guns by court order.  Here’s a likely scenario:

Kevin owns some weapons. His teenage son wants to borrow the car and Kevin says no since he’s failing High School and should be home studying. Kevin’s son decides to get back at Dad because the LAW (see here) now gives him that latitude.  He calls the cops and says, “I feel unsafe…. my Dad has a gun in the house and…. I feel unsafe”.  So a judge authorizes law enforcement to confiscate all Kevin’s weapons for a minimum of 21 days.  Kevin is treated like a criminal instead of a conscientious parent. He is forced to spend a lot of money on attorney fees to defend himself and restore his good name.  The value of the guns confiscated is less than the cost of fighting the State. The State wins and the guns are destroyed.

Now back to the Executive Order…….One problem with this whole thing is that Obama’s Executive Order isn’t really law at all. Congress makes law, not the POTUS.  The second problem is the majority of our society has no interest or concern as to what the POTUS can or can’t do…… as long as they keep getting “Free Stuff”.  Many of us know there is no such thing as FREE STUFF and we DO CARE about our rights being taken.  The third problem is that Hillary is going to win the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. She’s coming after our guns because, as mentioned, she will then have  total control over our behavior and our 1st Amendment rights.

We live in a society where the majority of the population are TAKERS NOT GIVERS. We have become slowly conditioned to accept the bastardization of this great Nation our fathers and grandfathers fought for so we might be free.  We really don’t know what it’s like to have our Liberty taken away from us.  Remember, Liberty comes from God, not man.  Be prepared to fight to keep it.  If Hillary Clinton wins in 2016 or Congress goes to the Democrats we’ll all get a FREE EDUCATION on the LOSS OF PERSONAL LIBERTY!

 

 

Becoming The Protectors

dailynewsfix imageWe just caught a portion of a live commentary on Fox News by Judge Jennine Perino after exiting the movie “The Mocking Jay, Part 2”. The movie was pretty good.

If your not familiar with this series, “The Hunger Games”, it involves a struggle for freedom in a futuristic setting in the wake of a dictatorship. Great movies. Check them out.

Anyway, the Judge was laying it down, “shucking some corn” as my friend Jackie would say.  I like her, generally, but this time she was playing on ignorance and fear when it comes to protecting ourselves from terrorist attacks like ISIS.

What I took exception to was her reactionary suggestion that we further “weaponize our police” to better protect all of us. Ummm…. Red Flag sister, er… Judge!

She alluded to the San Bernardino massacre that was obviously a radical Islamic terror attack. She thinks they were running around like keystone cops. Maybe they were but the Militarization of our police force as a reaction to these ISIS cues plays right into the progressive liberal “gun control” narrative. Are we really that scared and stupid?

This administration is looking to capitalize on incidents like San Bernadino. We have Muslims in the Whitehouse like Valerie Jarret (she runs things, not Barry) that capitalize on your fear.

Right after militarization of our police is confiscation of our weapons. You say no?  We say gun confiscation is eminent if we allow government to grow and our Constitutional 2nd Amendment rights to erode. The 2nd Amendment protects us from a rogue government. It keeps our 1st Amendment rights intact, especially our right to religious freedoms.

Bottom line ~ Our right to protect ourselves and our family is inalienable, of God not man. It shall not be infringed.

We don’t need to further weaponize police in this country.  We need to protect our borders, reject Syrian refugees, and teach our kids and family how to be proficient with a weapon, basic self defense. Teach them how not to be victims.

We must dilute our need to be protected by becoming the protectors. 

 

Betcha’ Didn’t Know!… Just The Facts

Roe v. Wade v. Gun Violence

We won’t beat around the bush.  We won’t try to prove anything.  Just a few facts for that Daily Cerebral Massage.

After watching the public’s reaction to the Daily News Fix’s piece yesterday (READ HERE) on the City of Greensboro’s gun disposal program, we thought to be apropos to point out a few things.

In 2011 the CDC posted the following statistics on the leading cause of death in the United States by the numbers (see the Chart):

  1. Unintentional Poisoning          36,280
  2. Unintentional Motor Vehicle   33,783
  3. Unintentional Fall                       27,483
  4. Suicide by Firearm                       19,990
  5. Homicide by Firearm                       11,068
  6. Suicide by Suffocation                  9,913

We’ll stop right there.  Nowhere in the report does the CDC mention death/homicide by abortion.  The 2012 statistics mention a “Infant Mortality rate: 5.96 deaths per 1,000 live births“, but abortions don’t count as “live births”.

You know what blows all these stats away?  Abortions murder over One Million unborn babies per year.  And the progressive left condone this barbaric practice.  The Democratic Platform condones aborting babies backed by the liberal progressive 1973 SCOTUS ruling, Roe v. Wade.  How can anyone profess to be a Christian and simultaneously be registered Democrat?  There is no gray area and the bible supports the Right To Life.

  • US Veterans have a suicide rate of 22 per day or 8000 per year (by multiple methods).
  • Homicides by firearm are around 11,000 per year.
  • Deaths by abortion are 1,000,000 per year.

Abortion murders people 99 times more than guns.  

So why is there so much focus on taking our guns?  Why the focus on interpreting the Second Amendment in a way that only give gun rights to police and military?

Advocating for abortion is Pure Evil.  Minimizing our individual rights afforded us by the US Constitution is all about controlling the populous and the Liberal Progressive left is “hard at it” selling that swamp plot.

Next time someone tells you how awful it is that so many people are dying in the streets from gun violence remind them that 99 babies are murdered each year to 1 gun death.  Tell them to get their priorities in check.  You’ll know they’ve been drinking the Mainstream Media Koolaid.   Give them the facts …..just the facts.

Ya’ll think about…. I am.
