I find it disconcerting that people continually bring up conspiracies, and call those of us who, by the way are very well read on some of the subjects, “sheep” and “brainwashed”.
This is a Leftist tactic. Call people names. Make them feel bad. Make them think they are stupid. Look, I’ve been following and in many cases, disproving (even, shall we say ‘disemboweling’), conspiracy theories) for a very long time. Perhaps longer than some folks visiting here have been alive.
I even ran a site called “Anomalies Network”. I was the forums administrator and one of my jobs was to take apart conspiracy theories and show the holes. I don’t have as much time these days to do that – but suffice it to say that almost every stupid theory out there, from 9-11 to Illuminati has been pretty much disproven.
People, however persist on these things because it gives an air of mystery.
Let me explain what is wrong with this…. it is distracting. It keeps people in an uproar over the wrong things. It takes the focus off the most important things in life, including but not limited to taking care of your own, your family, yourself, your friends and your future.
Right now, there are things that are SIGNIFICANTLY more important than “George Bush caused 9-11”.
- Pedophilia… of EPIC proportions.
- GUN CONTROL
- Socialists, Communists and Muslims in Government
- Fighting the good Fight
Choose your battles wisely and carefully. Of all of those things above, Gun Control is the NUMBER ONE MOST IMPORTANT point of the four.
The US Government is onto the pedo rings, and they are taking them down. But, it answers what has happened to so many children who simply vanished over the years.
Socialists and Communists and Muslims in Government will work itself out, or it won’t.
Fighting the Good Fight – the thing that is most near and dear to your heart, whatever that might be, is nothing if you don’t have the freedom to fight. I fight against censorship constantly, to the point I’ve been banned from Social Media in some areas. But, I’m STILL HERE, aren’t I?
Gun Control – isn’t about guns, it’s about CONTROL.
The NRA, GOA and a couple other organizations have more or less folded under pressure from the Left. And from internal pressure of those who think it easier to “get along to go along”.
Gun Control affects us all. Cops, Military, Fire Fighters, and Civilians. A weapon in the hand of a trained individual is worth all the cops in the world if they are 6 minutes away.
Controlling the guns – a plank of the platform of the Leftists in Congress (Beto O’Rourke for example) is absolutely his highest and most important point of order. Bernie Sanders is right there with him.
These two men have one thing in Common. Socialism.
Which, eventually, leads to Communism.
American can NOT become Communist, while the men and women of this country stand up and firmly say “NO”. And to do this we MUST in unison, stand say, “You Shall NOT infringe our Right to keep and bear Arms”.
Stand up. Call your Congressional Reps and tell them in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS, attempting to remove our weapons, or access to them, absolutely, unequivocally means WAR.
On September 11th, 2001 this author had walked into his desk rather early at work in Colorado at the Missile Defense Agency. I didn’t have television in my area, a restricted access room where we maintained the physical security of the building. My responsibilities were to install, maintain and repair the Electronic Security Systems in place at the time.
My co-workers weren’t quite there yet, and it was early, before 0700. I was reading through some logs when one of the Security supervisors badged into the room and came to get me.
“We need you in the Security Operations Center. Now,” he said. I asked what happened.
“A plane hit a building in New York. Hurry,” he turn and ran out.
I sat there for a moment considering that it was a very, very bad pilot. A few months before I had predicted this attack and talked about it on various blogs and with friends. Most thought I was nuts. Government officials said, “They want money, they don’t actually want to kill people,” I would be told.
Moments later, I was standing in the room watching CNN on the television in the conference room. It was 0703 local time in Colorado when we watched, live as the second plane hit the World Trade Center. My immediate, gut reaction was anger. I knew instantly this was a planned, deliberate attack. The Security Director asked me, “What next?”
I had spent many years working in Presidential Communications, not that it gave me any true insights, but I certainly have seen and heard a lot of things. The Director never asked me for advice.
“They just tried to take out the symbol of the Western Financial World. They will now hit the Pentagon, the White House and the Capitol building if they can. If they took two planes, this was no fluke and a well thought out plan. They will have other planes,” I said.
Everyone stared at me. Someone called the Pentagon. Someone called the Director of the MDA. I don’t know exactly who called whom, or what was said, but 40 minutes later, the Pentagon was hit. I was suddenly in the hot seat, everyone wanting to know how I “knew”.
How did I KNOW? Because you can NOT trust Muslims. You can not believe anything Islamists tell you. They lie to further their causes. How did I KNOW? It was right in front of all our faces, constantly in the news, constantly since I was a child. Arabs this, fighting that, killing the Jews, attacking people, blowing themselves up, killing others, hijacking planes in the 1970s almost on a daily basis. The Iranian Revolution – which removed the Shah and installed an Islamic Cult, holding our Americans hostage for 444 days. We dealt with that problem in the 1979-1981. I was on the ground support site for the Iranian Rescue Mission. I don’t for a moment believe these people would then or even in our current future stop being what they are. Dangerous, evil, murderers.
Today, we face an onslaught of attacks, not from Islam directly, but Apologists for them. From the Left specifically. From Facebook, from Twitter, from Google, from Youtube and other large social media outlets. Why? I am not certain, but the censorship of Americans who speak out about Islam is rampant.
This MUST STOP.
This author is currently suspended from Facebook for commenting on things the Left has done. Others, friends, have been banned for speaking about Islam, for pointing out the TRUTH.
The Truth, friends, is under attack. It must stop.
What other countries do is their problem, but Google, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube are ALL AMERICAN COUNTRIES. They are built under Capitalism. They must no long silence the truth. They allow all sorts of ridiculous conspiracy theories, they allow people to routinely attack the President, or Right Wingers, they even encourage words of violence aimed at people who wear “Make America Great Again” hats.
How childish do you have to be to continue this behavior?
And how ignorant do WE have to be to allow it?
I do not see Donald Trump losing the next election, but I DO see the Left coming back violently. Just as I saw the Muslims using aircraft as missiles.
If you aren’t ready for the coming War on the West, you’d BETTER get your ass in gear because it IS coming. Soon.
- Messages to friends, on Facebook and other Social Media. Make it CLEAR you will not support gun laws or confiscation.
- Call your Representatives today, and tomorrow. Senator for your district, and whomever your congressional Rep is. Don’t argue that “it won’t help”, just DO IT. Tell them that you and your family, your friends and your neighborhood will not comply with “Red Flag Laws” or any FURTHER infringement on our rights.
- Call your buddies and organize. Don’t just sit there, get yourselves ready because a battle is coming to all of us. Antifa is planning attacks on “Right Wingers”. They are specifically targeting some of the groups they are calling ‘white supremacist groups’ but they are including Oath Keepers, Cops, Veterans, gun owners, III%ers. It’s time to step up and let everyone know we’re all about to be in danger. One “neighborhood watch group” of 10 people who knows something about how to pass on messages, and let others know what is happening is better than 40 individuals who don’t know what’s going on and can’t communication with one another.
- Understand that you are one person. You must be bigger – as a group than the bad guys are.
- Understand the “Bad Guys” are Marxists/Communists who are pushing and running Antifa and similar groups. They HATE America, they HATE Capitalism and they want to destroy our way of life. They’ve had a pass for a LONG time, but no more. We can’t let them continue to have the loudest voice (Squeaky Wheel Gets the Grease, remember that!)
- IF you aren’t physically fit… get started, now, not tomorrow, just get there. If you’re medically unable to stand a “fight”, you will need to find another job. Learn to operate weapons, radios, etc.
- Get your HAM LICENSE (I am NOT KIDDING, GET IT, no arguments about the government etc, they aren’t the enemy – people inside are) Amateur Radio operators communicate over long distances, and you need to be LEGAL to do it. If the time comes the SHTF and all bets are off, you will have at least learned what you need to know and understand.
- Arm yourselves. KEEP YOUR WEAPONS WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES. Can’t emphasize this enough. If you can legally carry concealed do it. Open carry is a trap unless everyone is doing it. The young man that got dressed in his cammies, carried a weapon on a tactical sling and at the ready was a FOOL. He had every RIGHT to do it, but he did it the wrong way. He’s now a poster boy for the Lett to use as an example. A Bad One. Don’t be “That Guy”. Carry Concealed.
- Do not allow other mass shootings. They COPS won’t be there when it starts, but you might. Make sure you get your training in. Make sure you understand the consequences. Make sure, if you must shoot, you do your due diligence and make sure the person you must shoot is really the bad guy. Targets. KNow what’s behind, you know the drill…….
- America can not fall to these Leftists, and these organizations calling for Gun Bans. We must NEVER ALLOW IT.
A lot of groups are going to meet, and likely clash this weekend.
Antifa is planning to disrupt Americans this weekend in Oregon.
The problem is, they are trying to turn this around to say that the groups going there are the violent groups. Not Antifa.
Just be on alert.
The Second Amendment
by Rick Donaldson
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.
A simple, yet profound sentence, one which has meant and still means the most to the United States and Freedom from Tyranny throughout two hundred plus years as a Country.
The Second Amendment was ratified on December 17, 1791, along with the other nine amendments that make up the Bill of Rights. The Second Amendment protects that entire Constitution, and all the other Rights.
The phrasing seems to upset those who hate guns because they can not fathom things in any terms other than the “here and now”, or understand times of old, equating everything they read with current technology. But, “guns” are not what that Amendment was written about anyway. Read on.
There have been debates for at least two decades on the meaning of the word militia. The phrase has been bandied about by Right, Left, Center, Libertarians, Progressives, Democrats, Republicans and many others. All of them have tried to convince others what the word “militia” means, or that the phrasing precludes or includes things it does or doesn’t.
People have made comments about this or that “clause” and how the words work together, or don’t work. Or work differently than we are led to believe.
What ALL have failed to do is understand the time period, the history and the men and women of that time period.
In the 18th Century, England and other countries, while many had standing armies, also all had militias. The United States’ Colonists had “militias”. They did not have a “standing Army”. In fact, there was NO ARMY when the Revolutionary War began. There were militia groups and some more organized groups ended up becoming the Army we know today. The US Army, as we know it today didn’t come into being until 1796. Five YEARS after the Constitution was ratified. There was no “National Guard”. There were only militias. Militias are explained later.
In those times, and today, codified into US Code, a militia is defined as all able-bodied males between the ages of 16 and 45 years of age. And no, we’re not forgetting the ladies either, (US Code states 17 – 45):
10 U.S.C. § 311 – U.S. Code – Unannotated Title 10. Armed Forces § 311. Militia: composition and classes
(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32 , under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
(b) The classes of the militia are–
(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.
In 1776, there was no standing Army. The states didn’t want a standing Army. George Washington was against a Standing Army as were many other of the Founding Fathers.
Even so, the MILITIA consisted of well-regulated young and older men.
Each town or jurisdiction, usually counties, had their own militia, made up of able-bodied men and boys who showed up on a regular schedule to the “Town Square” or some other handy location to practice shooting and some limited tactics. These groups were everywhere and they answered to some person, in general a male, who was their “local commander”. He might be a blacksmith, or a tailor, or even the mayor of the town.
The phrase “well-regulated” simply meant “Trained”. It didn’t mean “governed by the government”.
So the phrasing of the Second Amendment is actually quite simple, not complex, and it’s not hard to understand. No “interpretation” is required.
The PEOPLE made up the militia, so, “A well trained militia is necessary and being made up of the PEOPLE, their right to keep and bear arms WILL NEVER be infringed.”
The militia was then, and is now, the people. The people are the militia, and the government is constrained from touching rights to keep and bear arms. Period.
The National Guard did not come into being officially until 1933. So, it was NOT the “National Guard” of which they spoke. It was NOT a standing Army, which they did not want.
Fire arms were muskets. But other weapons were not. Swords are weapons, and while there were no AR15s, no technological requirements for or against any sorts of weapons are found in the Amendment.
Instead we find the word ARMS. Not FIREARMS. Not Swords. Not guns. Not cannons. Just the word “Arms”.
Arms are ANY and ALL weapons that are known to mankind able to be picked up and used as offensive or defensive weapons. These are not limited to handguns, or rifles.
The Second Amendment doesn’t mention sports rifles, doesn’t mention hand guns. Thus arms are not LIMITED by this definition. Even if you want it to be. It’s simply not.
Weapons of war, weapons of any sort, including pitch forks, shovels, hammers, knives, swords, ballistas, catapults, bows and arrows, slingshots, firearms and “you name it” are included in this definition.
Infringed – means “changed, removed, taken away, watered down” and you SHALL NOT INFRINGE. Shall and Shall not are special words. Shall is an IMPERATIVE word. Meaning MUST. When placed with NOT, it changes the imperative to the opposite. If you SHALL do something, you MUST do it. It you SHALL NOT do something, you must NEVER do it.
Thus, another way to say this is, “A well trained militia is necessary since militias are made up of the PEOPLE, their right to keep and bear arms WILL NEVER be infringed.”
This is so simple, even a literate child in the 1700s could understand it. Perhaps that is because they were literate and those who wish to limit or ban, or infringe up on the right to keep and bear arms work themselves through many gyrations to do so. Or perhaps they are simply illiterate?
Today, everyone wants to change the meaning, adding in complications to the phrasing, instead of boiling it down completely. English majors, writers and professors have all weighed into the Second Amendment, and nearly all of them trained in Liberal Arts colleges will attempt to change the meaning of the Second Amendment to meet their personal opinions.
It just doesn’t work this way.
Simply put, the Right of the People of the United States SHALL NOT have their Right to Keep and Bear Arms infringed. The US Government, and the STATES may NOT touch that right. Ever.
Read it now, knowing what has been explained, and see for yourself just how simple this phrase is, and know that it’s meaning was to convey to us 243 years later, the exact, same meaning it conveyed in 1776 through 2019.
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.
Men and women of the United States, Citizens, and those who have stated their intent to become citizens make up the militia, organized, unorganized and in some cases, the “disorganized militias” and you have an absolute right to keep and bear any Arm you wish, be it a rifle, a handgun, a musket or a cannon.
This writer will proudly bear both his rifles and swords, in addition to his Pen, of which is sometimes been stated to be “mightier than the sword”.
Who IS this guy anyway?
I mean, I see all kinds of memes about him, I hear so much about the guy in various pieces of Right Wing news. I’ve NEVER ONCE heard him speak, heard his voice, seen anything in the main stream media about him, and not once, ever, have I seen his signature to a piece of paper giving orders.
Same, of course, can be said about the Koch brothers. Nothing. Not a peep.
Yet both sides have made them into demons – and they might be for all I know.
Today, I see this youtube media piece. I’m unconvinced. But, I’m also sure someone is footing the bill for the Leftist organizations that keep cropping up and failing, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, etc.
You tell me….
