About that “Government Shutdown”

On Saturday, December 22nd the House passed continuing resolution to fund the US Government awaiting a full floor vote in the Senate. POTUS Trump campaigned on building a border wall but political push back over the requested $5.6 billion in funding has led to a partial “Shut Down” of the federal government, mostly for “non-essential government employees” in nine (9) federal departments.

Anyone can have an opinion, but it helps to know the facts. Government shutdowns are not new. Here’s a short history:

“If the shutdown involves non-essential employees, how is this shutdown hurting the American people”, you ask? That depends on who you talk to. These are the departmental agencies involved:

From the same link  https://www.thebalance.com  this is the actual effect on workers:

  1. Homeland Security – 13 percent of 232,860 workers.
  2. Justice – 17 percent of 114,154 workers.
  3. Agriculture – 40 percent of 95,383 workers. February food stamps could be cut.
  4. Treasury – 83 percent of 87,267 workers. Tax refunds could be delayed.
  5. Interior – 78 percent of 68,469 workers. National Park maintenance has decreased.
  6. Transportation – 34 percent of 54,230 workers. Some security screeners have called in sick.
  7. Commerce – 87 percent of 47,896 workers.
  8. Environmental Protection Agency – 95 percent of 13,872 workers. It can use reserve funds to stay open through December 28.
  9. Housing and Urban Development – 95 percent of 7,497 workers.

So you can see the largest percentage of employees considered non-essential are housed in HUD, Dept. of Interior and the IRS. Ask yourself why that is.

These workers will get paid back pay when this furlough ends. So why is everyone so concerned? There is certainly more to consider than what has been presented herein. You’ll have to come to your own conclusion and do more research as necessary.

Opinion – This is all political theater. Many Presidents in recent past have triggered (for lack of a better word) shutdowns. The left and the right don’t agree, but it has more to do with House and Senate Democrats depriving President Trump of his key campaign promise. POTUS Trump promised to build a border security wall to protect all Americans from violent crimes, slow the influx of drugs for Mexico and Central America, as well as, stop illegal aliens from entering via our southern border. Foreign elements and their people do not respect our laws. They like our living conditions, job availability, and our welfare system. Unfortunately, about half of the legal born citizens of our great nation buy into the emotional false narratives the Main Stream Media hammers into their brains.

Additionally, the US spends more than the $5.6 Billion requested in just three(3) days on various welfare programs, almost $2 Billion per day. In 2019 and 2020 Conservatives will need to band together and put minor differences aside to preserve the freedoms we now enjoy. Democrats are being extremely petty and obstinate but they are banding together to form their own “wall”

The President will use the National Emergencies Act of 1976  in drawing down necessary funds for this wall by declaring a national emergency. Then, and only then, will these non-essential workers go back to being non-essential at your expense.

Big Daddy Government

Leftists worship Big Daddy Government because “they don’t have a hope in God,…. they have no hope in a higher power” so says NC Lt. Governor Dan Forest. Sure there’s a difference in radical leftists and every day liberals…. not much, but there is a slight separation. Leftists march in the street claiming they are “nasty women” wearing vagina hats. Yes, that’s pretty nasty….

For the most part liberals just want equality and for everyone to get along. Leftists identify more with anarchists.

Most liberals think they are saving the planet by driving a Prius and supporting corporate solar farms, but both, leftists and liberals, vote the same way and are easily misled.

What liberals just won’t admit is that when they vote for any Democrat, they are voting to support abortion. Some of you would dispute this fact and that’s okay, but you would be wrong. The Democratic Platform makes it very clear where they stand on abortion, the murder of the unborn.Aborted

Keep voting Democrat, keep feeding the monster, and keep supporting their radically immoral agenda. 

Government is their God. In fact they voted to remove the word God from their platform altogether. Can’t mention God, someone may be offended. Can’t mention gender, someone may be offended. Can’t mention race or you are automatically a racist. But Big Daddy Government needs gender and race for you driver’s license. Leftists and most liberals are hypocrites. Leftists are socialists and would have everyone sucking off of government subsidies. They do not acknowledge God and hate the United States but would spend that free money. On our currency appear the words “In God We Trust”. How long will that last?

Republicans push less regulation because we enjoy our innate God-given liberties. The Left wants to be controlled, enslaved.  No one can successfully argue that government doesn’t take freedom and liberties from us. The left confuses God with Government.

Here’s an example of a Leftist elected official? California Governor Jerry Brown says the Bible is discriminatory towards the LGBT crowd so he’s pushing a House bill that bans sales of the Bible and Christian counseling. No, seriously this is real! READ HERE  These people will stop at nothing!

Republicans abolished slavery because we believe are all created the same in the eyes of God. If we didn’t believe in God that line of thinking is no good, right? Republicans also championed the Civil Rights movement in the 60’s.  Many Democrats, especially black Democrats, give those credits to the Democrats. This was an overwhelmingly Republican led Act.

The leftist narrative is extremely bizarre and well funded and they are in the business of brainwashing and spewing false narratives. Facts be damned!  A lot of funding comes from out of our country. George Soros is prime example. Disgustingly enough, even past President Obama and his wife, Michele are working to undermine the Trump administration. CLICK HERE

Academia doesn’t do morality any favors. Why do we send our kids to these viper pits? A New Testament studies Professor at Holy Cross named Benny Liew, claims there was “something quintessentially queer” about Jesus’s relationship with God the Father. Also, that washing the disciples feet was sexually “suggestive, even seductive.” He noted that Jesus was a cross-dresser and had  queer desires.

We are sending way too many kids to college and not enough to trade schools. But that’s another column.

Wars have been fought for centuries for land mass take over… at any cost. Why do some folks have a hard time believing it’s happening right here in these United States? Is the country is brainwashed by Main Stream Media? There are many within our borders that hate America and want to take part in its downfall.

Now is the time for you to get down and dirty and fight for what you know is right. Fight for your conservative values and for adherence to some semblance of morality. We can not win this battle by ignoring their advance or yelling at the TV or quietly discussing it at work. No! You are going to have to get LOUD and BOLD….

Because they are coming for ALL your Land, your Rights, and ALL your money, and your children’s minds. Maybe even your life.

And…..

They are already working harder than we are!

Questions Liberal Progressive Democrats Won’t Answer

Image result for ar15

This author spells it out. The US Constitution makes no allowance for the bill of goods progressive liberals and the Main Stream Media are trying to sell us. The following are questions liberal progressive democrats peddling the Gun Control narrative will refuse to answer.

1. I want those pushing for Gun Control to tell me my life, or the lives of those I love, are not as important as someone they believe should be allowed to own or carry weapons. 
2. I want to know why those same people, who also push for equality, don’t believe we all have an equal right to self defense.
3. I also want to know from those who are pushing Gun Control, if they still believe designated gun free zones are safe from those who don’t obey the law and how they plan to stop an active shooter if law enforcement is not near to defend those in the gun free zone.
4. Lastly, I want those who are pushing for Gun Control to tell those of us who own and carry weapons, they do not want us to defend them if the need arises.

 

“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.”

 

Michele Nix is in her second term as NCGOP Vice-Chairman and believes in upholding the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution as written.

Don’t Be A Fish

Small Tank Perspective

Fish living in a small bowl have limited and narrow perspective. Give them a larger tank and their view widens. However, they are still trapped inside glass walls and dependent on an outside source to feed them, clean their tank, and keep them alive. They are fish.
Many human United States citizens have a limited perspective, just like fish. Even though they have a choice to move from a small tank to a larger tank they choose to confine themselves to the propagandized narrow view controlled by the Main Stream Media. MSM pushes false narratives to satisfy those who fund them.
Americans have a choice in the type of food they would like to consume, and how often their tank gets cleaned (even in the small tank environment). They have the ability and free will to choose the size of their tank. They can also choose to live with no restraints, no tank at all. The USA is one of the few places on earth where humans can freely make those choices without permission from a higher authority.

Free Will – Only in America

Most Liberals have a small tank “gold fish perspective” in the current and ongoing debate over our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. All of them may not live in a small glass jar but would rather government provide ALL things. They bow to government because government is their God.

“As Americans, we can choose to climb out of our tank, kick it aside, and exercise the freedoms God gave us.”

The Constitution of the United States of America is our founding document. It was God inspired, written to protect future generations against a rogue and oppressive government, and allows us free will. That’s the best deal going on the planet. So why would anyone not want freedom? We have a communist movement right now in this country. Among other things, they seek to undermine or remove our inalienable right to protect ourselves and our families?
We live in the greatest country on earth, the “land of the free, the home of the brave”. We can’t afford to take this gift of freedom for granted lest the things we enjoy everyday like traveling unchecked, owning land, raising our children as we see fit and protecting them from harm be taken away. The 2nd Amendment is at the heart of it all and that’s exactly why they want to stifle it.

“We the people ARE the militia assigned to secure a free state. Our right to bear arms is not a choice the government or anyone else can take from us. Our right to protect ourselves and our families from eminent danger or harm by any means is a right given to us by God, not by man or by government.”

Do not be frightened to engage in debate with the ignorant and those brainwashed by the Main Stream Media narrative which is controlled by One World Order proponents. These “great liberal minds” are only fish living in a small bowl dependent on government to tell them how they should think. These are the same geniuses that believe putting a “No Weapons Allowed” or “Gun Free Zone” sign at a school or place of business will keep them safe.

“Train and arm willing school personnel. Train them to be the militia.”

Why put your kids or family member in a situation where they can not fend for themselves? It is not up to law enforcement to protect us all the time. They can’t and they won’t. Who among us wants a police state?


Protect your families at any cost. Don’t wait for someone else to do it.
The 2nd Amendment protects the 1st Amendment. Once our Constitutional rights are gone, we will all be Government Fish living in a small glass bowl.
Don’t be a fish.

Don’t Vote With Your Feelings

“All politics is local”

Municipal races are in full swing and early voting is underway in many cities and towns. I enjoy this time of year but as a grassroots activist of the conservative variety it still surprises and amazes me when I hear why residents vote for a particular candidate.

In small town politics, my home town included,  it has been my observation that most residents vote, not on the candidate’s qualifications or ability to lead, but rather on candidate popularity, race, and/or party affiliation. Many get their marching orders at the polls.

In general, the liberal mentality is emotionally based, while conservatives tend to see things in a more pragmatic manner. It’s important to work together to serve all residents fairly, but if your tax base is low, the budget needs to reflect that reality. Conservatives tend to promote living within their means while simultaneously serving all residents equally.

When you elect a Mayor, City or Town Councilman or other public servant, you are electing them to make decisions for you for the next four(4) years or whatever that term may be.

Feelings don’t really matter. Electing qualified individuals that will make fair decisions with your money is what really matters.

Regardless of what they campaign on, non-qualified candidates have no business playing Monopoly with tax dollars. 

What does “All politics is local” mean? It means you are affected the most by local politics, not by what is does at the State and Federal level. Think about it.

Just something to chew on. Vote Responsibly!

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.

“Never Surrender Your Rights, Never Give Up, Never Shut Up, And Keep Getting Up!” ~ John Nix and The Daily News Fix

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.
