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.

 

 

Police…… Turn Your Guns Over & Get a Prize ~ WoooHoooo!

We’re scratching our heads over this one…. Greensboro police have asked residents, anyone over 18, to voluntarily turn in their weapons.  That’s right, you heard it!  This is actually happening in North Carolina, our home State!  Read the article HERE.

But then again, just last week we read that Greensboro police were halting all traffic stops for minor infractions like a taillight or headlight out.  This is billed as their solution to “racial disparity” since a liberal UNC professor and his undergraduate researchers released information that black folks are four (4) times more likely to get pulled over by police (racial profiling) than white folks. What we can’t figure out is…. did anyone consider that a high percentage of minorities fall into a lower income category and may have a harder time maintaining their vehicles.  Read the article HERE. This policy change to end racial disparity most likely treats the symptom, not the root cause of the illness.

The “racial disparity” thing is believable, especially with all the liberal media hype.  But the vulnerability of the public will be tested with this voluntary weapons disposal scheme.  We are, most likely, preaching to the choir.  However, these two Liberal Progressive moves in one city within days of one another, set off multiple alarms in our heads.  Our Liberty is under assault in own backyard.  The second amendment is being tested by a liberal Police Chief supported by a liberal Democratic City Council.  Use this highlighted link to contact the City Council.  Call and question their rational for supporting this program. Go ahead, I dare you.  Let us know what they say!

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.”

There is no ambiguity, hiccup or doubt in the above text, no interpretation needed. In their wisdom the authors of the Constitution, our founding fathers, feared we would, one day, need protection from a government “gone wild”.  Seeing what is happening in Greensboro, the prudent gun owner should begin stocking up on ammo while the “sheeple” flock to the gun disposal bin for their consolation prize.  Voluntary gun disposal is a ploy to gain complete control over a populous, it is waste of taxpayer money, and it does not curb crime.  It only puts the innocent law abiding residents at risk by not having ample protection. 

Nothing good will ever come from big government.  Things are getting interesting with ISIS now threatening our homeland.  They have even released a list of cities they claim they may target. Relinquishing your weapons in a gun buy back program does not make the Top 10 list for preparedness (insert sarcasm). Germany began disarming it’s citizens in 1939 and then slaughtered 16 million Jews. More HERE.  Beware!  Though they are sold as such, programs like these are NOT about gun safety or curbing crime.  They ARE only about government CONTROL over a compliant populous.

Ya’ll think about it. We are.

House Bill 562 Expands Gun Rights & Nixes Jim Crow Holdout

On Wednesday, June 3rd, House Bill 562 made it’s way through the House rules panel (14-13) with the Chairman casting the tie-breaking vote. The Bill will now move to the House floor for a vote.  This bill, titled “An Act to Amend Various Firearm Laws” has created opinionated interpretation on how the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America should be applied here in North Carolina.

HB 562 would allow District Attorneys to carry concealed in the courtroom if they are Concealed Carry holders and would allow Legislators to conceal carry on the Legislative campus.  What has garnered more media attention than anything else in this bill is a provision that would allow gun purchase without obtaining a permit through the Sheriffs office, this provision taking effect in 2021. Gov. Pat McCrory and the North Carolina Sheriffs Association are opposed to this Bill.  There are also leftists that interpret the 2nd Amendment in a different manner as evidenced in this article from May 13th.

Public opinion is split along party lines with many 2nd Amendment supporters as proponents for this Bill.  It is well known that criminals will obtain guns by other means than a permit, so permitting is just more red tape and costs more for government to process, which, in turn, cost the taxpayers more.  There is also the, not so well known, fact that permitting was originally put in place to prevent blacks from purchasing firearms.  So this Bill would eliminate another Jim Crow era holdout.

One interesting component of this Bill is that heath care providers would be prohibited from asking their patients in a written questionnaire about gun ownership and would be disallowed from sharing information provide by patients collected verbally regarding firearm ownership.  Providers would face civil monetary penalties of up to $500 for disclosing such information.

We are not sure at this point just when this Bill will go to the House floor or what it’s fate might be but we’ll keep you informed.

Democrat Supported Planned Parenthood Kills Far More Than Guns Ever Will

Originally Written and Published: Tuesday, June 18, 2013 at 10:02 PM for the Kinston Free Press

Written by: John Nix, Guest Columnist

Ask most people what Planned Parenthood is and they’ll tell you it’s designed to help young or financially challenged couples plan a family. Honestly, I had never looked at the meaning behind the name but was surprised and disgusted to find out the truth. More than a million babies are aborted in the U.S. each year through Planned Parenthood’s services. They call this “family planning.”
Planned Parenthood’s web site lists more than 750 locations around the country. Their mission statement states they “believe in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual’s income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence.”
It continues to explain all services are complimentary, that they advocate the right to these services and promote research and education. This left me with more questions that needed answers.
Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood in 1921 under the name of American Birth Control League. Sanger was a racist and believed darker skinned people were inferior. She wanted to “assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit.” She believed in negative eugenics, an effort to cleanse society of hereditary traits considered unfit, and was an advocate for sterilization for the profoundly retarded.
Despite these facts, she is the founding hero of Planned Parenthood. Ironically, Sanger was an advocate for birth control but opposed abortion, calling it a “disgrace to civilization.”
How is Planned Parenthood funded? Revenues in 2011 were in excess of $1.219 billion with assets totaling $1.377 billion. This “not-for-profit” is 45 percent funded through your tax dollars. However, as funding goes up, abortions performed increase and real health services for women go down.
Planned Parenthood is “the most proficient killing machine in the United States” says Douglas Scott of Life Decisions International. Planned Parenthood offers free abortions by pill or in one of their clinics. Though it promotes safe sex, it also supports deviant sexual orientations and advocates for choice in gender identification.
Planned Parenthood does not represent what its name purports. It promotes abortion and undermines family values and marriage. It indoctrinates our youth with self-absorbed practices that replace God and family values with self and sex. Primarily, it supports and perpetuates a very lucrative abortion industry. Political agenda and money are motivating factors.
In an earlier guest column, I discussed the hypocrisy surrounding gun control and its link to abortion. Advocates for gun control also support abortion. Gun control is about control, not saving lives.
There are about 1.25 million children slaughtered through abortion each year. Less than 9,000 deaths can be attributed to guns each year. We are told that guns are bad and abortion is a right. The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is a right. Abortion is a choice. A gun is neither good nor bad, as it is an inanimate object. Conversely, abortion goes against most world religious doctrines and certainly Christian teachings.
Abortion requires a human being to rationalize and follow through with the act of killing another human. How is that a right?
Planned Parenthood is another liberal progressive political tool used to indoctrinate those ignorant souls who believe poor choices have no consequences and “free stuff” has no price tag. Progressives don’t seem to value human life but will sacrifice liberty for this fodder. Planned Parenthood indoctrinates the weak and preys on the poor and misguided for political gain.
We collectively turn our heads allowing the killing of millions. You and I finance these services. Can you continue to watch our nation slide into moral destitution and spiritual decay? Life is precious.

Coming Home To What Matters Most

Sometimes it’s good to come back home.  It’s good to take stock of what really matters in the long run.  Things like “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”, concepts such as our liberty and our rights are granted by God, not man, that these states of the United States of America are sovereign and the federal government is not beholden to other nations.  With the threat of world terror by radical Islamic groups, it may help to know that Islam is an ideology not a religion.  This ideology has evil elements and comes with and instruction booklet, the Quran.

So here are a  few things to come back home to:

God and family are most important yet we will have neither lest we fend off the continued attack from the liberal progressive left.  My ancestors and perhaps yours relinquished themselves from the tyrannical rule of the King of England almost 240 years ago, shedding their blood for us.  Since then over a million men (women included) have died in battle defending the United States of America from attacks from outside and within our borders.  The Constitution of the United States of America is still the Supreme Law of the Land yet we have endured an administration over the last seven (7) years that has bastardized and disregarded our Constitution as rubbish.  Barack Obama has most openly, aggressively and arrogantly forced his socialist lies on the American people more so than any other President in the history of these United States of America.  He has increased the national debt more than all his predecessors combined since  the inception of this country.  But you can do your part to combat the assault.

The best way to affect change is locally.  Battles are won in your own back yard.  Thick skin is required and when you stand on principle you can’t lose.  The 1st Amendment is our best friend while the 2nd Amendment protects us from a tyrannical government.  This 2016 election cycle is pretty darned important but so is 2015.   The impact from the outcome of local races are felt the most.  School boards, City Councils and other elected  posts affect us where we are.   Get involved today.   Run for local office or help a conservative win an elected post.  We’re depending on you.
