Fascists at Facebook

In case anyone is UNAWARE, three nights ago, Facebook obliterated almost 1000 groups, and deleted anyone’s accounts in those groups.

The groups were labeled “Dangerous militia groups”

Facebook HAS NOT DELETED Antifa, BLM or any of their groups or posts.

The groups deleted were NOT VIOLENT. They were not even true militia groups. Many of the groups and the people deleted were like my wife. A grandma/great-grandma who doesn’t do anything “violent”.

This was a BLATANT ATTACK on First Amendment Rights, and our rights to chose with whom we associate.

I don’t want to hear from you people who are defending Facebook as a “private company” either. They are a SOCIAL MEDIA company, and as such have a TOS that states they will protect your data and you, and yet, they allow ALL this “hate Speech” from the Left, hate towards the President, but block things that goes “against their community standards”.

I am part of that community and I want Antifa blocked. I want BLM removed. I want the KKK removed. I want the NBP removed.

Where’s that part of the standard??????

No – this was a direct attack on Conservatives. NOT on “violent groups”.

It was cover bullshit for Fascism.

You have been warned.

Facebook is attempting to sway the election.

The Violence is from the Left.

Pay attention, or get swept under the sand by the winds of time

Censorship

By Tommy Gunn

 

So I woke up this morning to this splattered all over my page!

Image may contain: text that says 'f … Thomas, You Shared a Post With False Information About COVID-19 That information was removed because it had harmful false information. The World Health Organization (WHO) has a webpage with common rumors that you can share with friends so everyone can stay safe. Share Link Go to who.int'
I guess I have been deemed as persona non grata by WHO.

Their excuse says “Studies show hydroxychloroquine does not have clinical benefits in treating COVID-19 “.

Yet thousands upon thousands of people have been exposed and then treated successfully. Hydroxychloroquine is an immunomodulatory drug that has been used for 60 years to treat malaria and autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus and inflammatory arthritis, and potential new uses and benefits continue to emerge.

But again, Facebook the masters of medical technology and treatment (lol) says that’s “harmful information”.

Once again same bullshit show.

Hey! Par for the course right?

What did I expect?

However, American Doctors and Treatment with Hydroxychloroquine have Cut the “Death Rate” Significantly in COVID-19 Patients.

Henry Ford Health System Study Shows this clearly it does along with a multinational registry analysis.|

But the WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION that ran the narrative on the coronavirus plandemic is still at it.
And if you look this morning they all have been splatterd and painted with “forced” retractions and stamped by …. drum roll please…. The WHO.

Intelligence sources have revealed how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and globalists have corrupted the World Health Organization (WHO), under the leadership of Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

The WHO pursued politics over public health by helping Beijing spread disinformation about the outbreak it’s possible treatments excluding Taiwan and its wealth of knowledge about the disease…. non of this is theory… it’s fact !

I guess Zuckerburg and his security outfit of leftist contractors, backed by the Socialists who run around the platform are making sure you don’t know a damn thing, are making sure the conversation ends along with your first amendment speech to openly say anything that goes against the plandemic narratives and mass vaccination programs.

Yesterday’s interview with Bill gates clearly confirms he thinks tec giants should overrule any conversation.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/bill-gates-spread-of-outrageous-coronavirus-video-shows-flaw-in-social-media-platforms-124710983.html

With over 2.6 billion monthly active users as of the first quarter of 2020, they hold a massive amount of power to “shut down” any national conversation wether pro or con or with “any subject” that they see fit in an instant.

That bother you? It should!

Want to know why the tech giants were called to Capitol Hill?

Why their Global monopolies can control any conversation?

The 5 Characteristics of Dystopian Society is …

  1. Government control
  2. Environmental destruction
  3. Technological control
  4. Survival
  5. Loss of individualism

You might want to think about that because it not coming, it’s here.

Communism in America; Beware

The fight for America is on. There’s a Shooting War going on, but most people are really too blind to see it happening.

The Riots, the BLM, the Antifa, NFAC – NONE of that is about “Black Lives”. It’s all about distraction, it’s all about trying to create an extremely toxic atmosphere of hatred towards white people.

The Left has been in Control of things long enough now to have separated our children from their parents, even our adult children have suffered and now the youngest generation is confused. They don’t know if they are male or female, have been told they are “whatever gender they want to be”.

The Left has sown lie after lie after lie to the last three generations of children. Now, the reaping has begun. The confusion is real. The “belief” in the Left and the Media has become a religion.

The hatred for Donald Trump is palpable, and Trump Derangement Syndrome a REAL mental disorder now. The BELIEF that MY opinion isn’t worth someone else’s because I don’t believe like they do has reached an all time high and the Bullshit meters are being pegged on Leftist Lies.

Covid-19 isn’t a Novel virus, it’s SARs. It isn’t going to kill us all because we have no immunity. Instead the lies are going strong and Social Media “giants” are attempting to even squelch the truth about drugs that can STOP it in it’s tracks.

This battle is being waged for your brain, for your heart, and for your money.

IF you want to believe in bad science, that’s your issue. If you want to wear a mask because you BELIEVE it will protect YOU, that’s great, do it. Don’t tell others what to do. Masks on well people are NOT protecting anyone. They are hurting people.

This is a Civil War, and the Enemy is the Left; they are the ones who are playing the narrative Game with the Marxists. The Marxists are pushing for the destruction of the United States and Capitalism.

We will not submit.

If you’re a “Progressive”, you’re a COMMUNIST, even if you believe you’re not. If you’re a Liberal following the BLM movement, you too, are being deceived. If you’re a Communist and openly admit it, or hide in the closet, you are NOT going to win this one.

America is coming for you.

Stand down, or stand alone.

Independence Day – 2020

Two days from now is Independence Day.  July 4th.  The day we celebrate the birth of our country, and the removal of a tyrannical government.

In two days, we will see just how free a people we are.  Many states (Dem controlled) have canceled any celebrations – due to a virus.

Antifa/BLM/RevComs are planning something for that day.  We’ve all been forced to “mask up in public” in many places.  It becomes clear that everyone is being forced to do this, because the rioters and anarchists are doing it.

Why?  Because “Now you can’t tell normal people from the bad people”.  Think about that awhile.

But, we digress…. on the 4th of July, there are special units created within the Department of Homeland Security.  They have been placed around the country to defend our statues and monuments.  Trump signed an EO to put attackers in jail for ten years. (Personally, we have issues with EOs dictating law, but we’ll see how that goes).

Today, he sent out a video, which we encourage you to watch.

(https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1278673786913599488)

We feel he has essentially called up on the American People, indeed the Militia to act on this, and to stand by for defense of our monuments, and indeed, our way of life.  He’s very careful to not say the words “militia” but the “Vast Silent Majority”; the people.  Americans.

Why do we believe this?  Because, friends, YOU are the militia. We, the PEOPLE.  In the words of those who founded this country in the first place, you will find the reasoning.  In the second place, if you allow the defunding of police, then you, yourself become the police.

George Mason: “I ask you sir, who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people.” (Elliott, Debates, 425-426)

Tenche Coxe: “Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American… The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.” – Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

Joseph Story: “The militia is the natural defense of a free country against sudden foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpations of power by rulers. It is against sound policy for a free people to keep up large military establishments and standing armies in time of peace, both from the enormous expenses, with which they are attended, and the facile means, which they afford to ambitious and unprincipled rulers, to subvert the government, or trample upon the rights of the people.” – Joseph Story. Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States. 3 vols. Boston, 1833.

George Washington: “A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.”

We are on the verge of war.  It’s not what you think.  It’s not “us against the government”, it was never going to be like that, regardless of you folks who thought so.  It’s going to be Us, the People, against the Marxist forces marshaling against us now.

ANTIFAFORCES

We are all against “fascism”, but these guys are communist agents, and they intend harm to America, to you, your family, and the government of the USA.

Don’t be deceived.  We are not fascists, we are AMERICANS.  Be prepared.

https://gunsinthenews.com/independence-day-heralds-in-a-marxist-counter-revolution/

Edit: Intel: For all you in the PNW, this is the Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club. The guy at the left front is featured in most of their social media pics.

We Organize Against Fascism.

We work to counter the rise of fascist and far-right groups and entities in the Puget Sound (Salish Sea) region.

That includes disrupting fascists and their structures to keep them from effectively organizing, and especially resisting fascists holding public events and maintaining a public presence.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Back in the 18th century, a “regular” army meant an army that had standard military equipment. So a “well regulated” army was simply one that was “well equipped” and organized. It does not refer to a professional army. The 17th century folks used the term “standing army” or “regulars” to describe a professional army. Therefore, “a well regulated militia” only means a well equipped militia that was organized and maintained internal discipline. It does not imply the modern meaning of “regulated,” which means controlled or administered by some superior entity. Federal control over the militia comes from other parts of the Constitution, but not from the Second Amendment.

Black and White

You all think this is all black and white…. pun intended.

You’re all, both sides being misled.

It’s no longer going to require police to stop the damage and destruction. It will require men who will stand up, take a stand and take violence to the threat.

We are AT WAR.  This is not a joke. This is not fear mongering.  It’s a simple fact.

They are using George Floyd and BLM for their own purposes and Americans are standing by stupidly arguing with each other.

Make NO MISTAKE NOW, these people are not normal people who are simply upset over racism. The handlers of BLM, Antifa, and some of the other splinter hate groups, including some of the supposed “white supremacists” (Who are also as fake as many of the BLM people) are NOT regular “Americans”.

They are trained organizers, and hateful Marxists bent on the destruction of the United States of America, a capitalist society, and anything “Western”.

They seek nothing less than American capitulation and destruction.  They are the driving force behind the BLM movement.  They are the driving force behind Antifa (mostly white in case you’ve not noted this).

It’s past time to fight back and it’s going to get bloody.

It’s certainly NOT all “black and white” any more.

Stop believing the media and stand with other Americans against this outrageous nonsense.

STAND TOGETHER AGAINST THE REAL ENEMY WITHIN!!

BLM Confirms Marxist Cause

Marxists in America are the Enemy

America is under attack.

Antifa, BLM, Arachists.

It’s time the Governors stood up to this nonsense and shut them down.

Let me be very clear here.  I’m not a racist.  I’m ANTI-MARXIST.

BLM and their movement, while in theory was a good idea, has been usurped by Marxists.

They speak openly of their association with Marxism. 

Thus… regardless of your color, or your country of origin, regardless of your religion, regardless of where you live… if you are a Marxist, you are the ENEMY of American people.

America knows this now.

If you want a war… you’ll have it.  We won’t back down and we don’t want your brand of hatred here in America.

Western Rifle Shooters, WordPress and Facebook: Attacking Free Speech

As you might have noted, this is a WordPress.com blog.  It’s “free”, otherwise, we have to buy a domain name, pay for it, and pay for a server, and software etc.

To be truly free, perhaps we need to do so.

A few days ago, it was reported (as I also did) that Western Rifle Shooters blog went down.  I posted a screen shot.

Today, on Facebook someone asked me about it.

I attempted to send them the link.

Lo and Behold!

Facebook does not allow the link EITHER.

If you do NOT THINK or BELIEVE there is a direct attack on Conservative Speech, then you’re a idiot.  And if you support it, you’re worse, you’re  a criminal and a Communist.

 

About APRC

This is the “ABOUT” page of this site, and it needs to be repeated.  The following is the text on the “About”, if you click it.

I am an American. I am a Patriot. I believe in the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and I have read and understand the history of this country.  I have read the Federalist Papers. I have studied the Revolutionary War and it’s reasons.  I took an oath, not once, but six separate times when enlisting and re-enlisting in the US military to “uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

I take that oath seriously.  I’m not going to stand still while the Congress or Executive Branches make unconstitutional laws aimed at disarming me, my family, friends or Americans, nor while they try to slam the door on Freedom of Speech for the people of this country, the Press (which includes bloggers).  There is no inherent right to any one group to be able to “have their say” above all others.

There are NO “common sense laws” when it comes to guns. There are no laws on the books now or that can be created that would have stopped Aurora, Sandy Hook, or even the Fireman killer in New York.  There were already laws on the books against what they did.  The law didn’t stop them.  Taking guns from innocent and law abiding Americans merely makes them susceptible to criminals and worse to Tyranny of the Government.

I will further state clearly and for the record. I’m not a “terrorist”.  I’m an American born and raised in the country.  I own guns and know how to use them. Unlike others I probably don’t have enough “guns, money and lawyers” to fight back, and as another blogger famously once said “You can squish me like a bug”. But like him, I won’t squish myself.

If I’m ever “gone after” my entire family knows I’m not someone to threaten. I never threaten. But if I am threatened, I will stop that threat cold.  Don’t threaten me.  You may not like me, you might want me to shut up, but you’re better off walking away without starting a fight.

I am not a Racist. I’m not associated with any “White Supremacist Groups” and I abhor them as much as I do “Black Supremacist Groups” – that includes the KKK and the New Black Panthers. Both are wrong.

I’m not a “homophobe”.  I don’t care who you marry, who you date or what you do in your bedroom.  Don’t expect me to “affirm” it.  Don’t expect me to much care one way or the other.  Do what you like, but leave me alone and out of it.  Got it?

I’m not an “Islamaphobe”.  I don’t like what is going on in the Middle East.  I’ve been there.  There is plenty of history there, but all of it eventually leads to violence over Islam.  Islam advocates the murder of innocents, the stoning of women, the murder of children, the beheading of “infidels”.  Anyone, ANYONE who isn’t Muslim and doesn’t follow Islam is considered an infidel.  Not much room for tolerance is there?  I refuse to tolerate Islam in my face any more than I will allow any other religion being forced on me.  If you are Muslim and decide you don’t like me, guess what? This is America, I don’t care.  Move along, leave me alone and I won’t bother you.  Hurt Americans, my family or friends and you will pay.

Government: You work for me, not the other way around.  I’m not a slave, I’m not a peasant and I’ve worked hard all my life.  I have worked in and for the US Government for a very long time.  I’m tired of the politics, the bureaucracy and the egotistical way the so-called “leaders” in this age think they can do whatever they wish with no consequences.  The time of these “Life Long Bureaucrats” is coming to an end, and it will come sooner than you think.

All I want is for Americans to be LEFT ALONE by the Government.  All I want is for America to remain Free.   No more government “oversight” on the public.  It is time for public oversight on the Government.

I am not “anti-government” (I’m anti-BIG-government, I’ve got no problem with the government, I do however take issue with those running it with their own agendas).

I’m not a leader in a militia or any other “group”. In fact, I do belong to the NRA and GOA, at least for now. I DO believe in my second Amendment rights and will defend them by whatever means I have and for as long as I’m alive – regardless of whether I support the NRA and GOA.

I am not “into Conspiracies” and have actively for the better part of 20 years attempted to debunk or prove them wrong, Right Wing, or Left Wing.  I will continue with the blog to question conspiracy theories.

The Bill of Rights is not the Bill of Needs. I don’t ask for anything from anyone, and I’ve served this country for 37 years.  It’s time this country stood down from illegal surveillance, illegally over taxing citizens, illegally stopping one side of the political spectrum so the other side can gain power.  It is time for this to go back to Common Sense and lose the “Progressive Mindset”.  Progressiveness is not “Progress”.  It is Communism, plain and simple and we Americans DEMAND it be removed from our government, from our halls of Justice, from the Military, from Congress, and from the White House.

I’m one of millions and one in a million. I won’t “shut up”, I won’t “shut down” and if you shut down my blog I’ll start another one, and another one.

Americans, unite against Tyranny.  Unite against the Anti-Constitutionalists who are trying to remove our right to self defense (and the right to defend ourselves against Tyranny).

It is past time to awaken American Patriots!

Riots, America, and the destruction of the USA. ALERT AMERICANS FIGHT BACK

Gate Keepers of “Truth”

Today I discovered something I already knew in my gut.

YOU are NOT ALLOWED to have a DIFFERENT OPINION.

Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and other such places are removing ANY information or data contrary to what they want you to know.

No, I didn’t really just “discover it” I suppose. I have know it. But today, I got actual, hard evidence.

Seeing a movie on Facebook about “Plandemic” – this covid virus – and how it was a PLANNED thing, rather than an accident, Youtube removed the movie.  I went hunting for further information.

I found WordPress has removed several sites talking about it.

So, if MY site suddenly vanishes, you will know why, it’s NOT because *I* took it down.

Here is the video:  https://www.bitchute.com/video/NPYdyZpSZCEA/

Go there, read the links and download and pass this video along.

You are being conditioned to believe that those who stand up for their rights are selfish, extreme, irresponsible, irrational, hateful and lawless.

YOU ARE BEING CONDITIONED. YOU ARE BEING BRAINWASHED.  You are listening to the propaganda, and you are FALLING FOR THE LIES.

We are a thinking people.  We are a reasoning people.  We are capable of making our own decisions.  We do NOT need a government to “baby sit” us.  We do not WANT a government to tell us how to act, behave, where to go, when to go, how to go, what to do or how to do it.

We the People of the United States of America control these so-called law makers in Congress and in the state Legislatures.  It’s time to remove them.

Well past time.

 

Real or Fake News?

Friday, 1 May 2020, the CDC updated their numbers.

I pulled the screen shot below from Facebook.

Image may contain: possible text that says 'Updated CDC website May 1: drops total US COVID-19 death rate from 64,283 to 37,308. 28,295 died of something else. THERE IS NO PANDEMIC.'

As of May 1, the CDC saying there were 64,283 deaths.

Image may contain: text
(From CDC – https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-updates/cases-in-us.html)

In REALITY, the death tolls being reported by the CDC on their main page are MISLEADING at best, lies at worst.

The following is ALSO a screen shot, directly from the CDC.

No photo description available.

Where are they getting these? (CDC)  Read their data to find out – but to summarize, they are pulling it from death certificates across the country.  They also put out a letter stating that if someone dies, and they have been tested and have the Covid virus, the reporting officials are supposed to put “Covid” on the death certificate.

(See:  https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvss/coronavirus/Alert-2-New-ICD-code-introduced-for-COVID-19-deaths.pdf)

Should “COVID-19” be reported on the death certificate only with a confirmed test?

COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death. Certifiers should include as much detail as possible based on their knowledge of the case, medical records, laboratory testing, etc. If the decedent had other chronic conditions such as COPD or asthma that may have also contributed, these conditions can be reported in Part II. (See attached Guidance for Certifying COVID-19 Deaths)

This is called “padding the numbers”.  Because they want it reported as COVID-19, if a patient had COPD, the other parts are “reported on part II” of their forms, thereby allowing data entry to only show “Covid”.

So a patient that dies from pneumonia caused by covid, flu, or any other cause is being reported as “Covid-19”.

What we are seeing is a deliberate, and politically motivated attempt to show many more deaths in the USA related to this Chinese Virus, than actually caused by the virus.

Do we believe there is no virus?  Not at all. We are sure there is a virus.  We are not sure it was ever a virus that we should have made a bigger issue of, than H1N1 or SARS,  or MERS, however.  (This virus IS a SARS like virus though, so we DO understand that it MIGHT have been a very dangerous virus, and understand the original precautions.  At this point though, should be continue those precautions and shut down the entire US Economy over a “maybe”?)

Do we think it is dangerous?  Probably at least as dangerous as the worst flu you can imagine, and that means that many of people who are elderly, already is poor health or affected by other diseases like COPD, asthma, or other respiratory illnesses could be placed in danger by this virus.  Likely it is not as dangerous to many people as some other virus might be, but more dangerous than some.  H1N1 and various strains of this swine flu have been around for more than 100 years, and every time it rears it’s ugly head, people die.  The Spanish Flu (which was actually a CHINESE ORIGINATED flu) was also H1N1.  Masks and quarantines did little to stop that flu as well.

Do we believe the media about this virus?  No, emphatically not now.  In the beginning we were ALL willing to do what it takes to prevent the spread.  We stayed home. We wore masks.  Some people attempted to corner the market on hand sanitizer and for some unknown reason, toilet paper.  But, we stayed home, willingly closed our businesses, stayed away from others.  As for 17 March in most places, several states closed down, many more followed suit.

It has been very close to seven weeks for many states, cities and townships.  The Hot Spots like New York are still seeing spikes, because, for whatever reason the virus was already spread.  Places that have closed perhaps mitigated the spread.  But, perhaps not.  We just don’t know.

What we HAVE accomplished is to scare people who are otherwise quite reasonable people, who understand that to be immune to something you generally have to be exposed to it, and develop antibodies.  The other thing we have accomplished is social isolation – for a species of reasoning creatures whose very existence is dependent up on contact with others, the human race.

The other thing we’ve accomplished with isolation is to prevent people from being exposed to this virus, thereby giving them a higher chance of catching it worse than if they had been exposed on a normal basis.

Herd immunity, or Community Immunity is something that happens.  Here’s a excerpt from a medical site explaining it:

Herd Immunity

Herd immunity, or community immunity, is when a large part of the population of an area is immune to a specific disease. If enough people are resistant to the cause of a disease, such as a virus or bacteria, it has nowhere to go.

While not every single individual may be immune, the group as a whole has protection. This is because there are fewer high-risk people overall. The infection rates drop, and the disease peters out.

Herd immunity protects at-risk populations. These include babies and those whose immune systems are weak and can’t get resistance on their own.

For those interested in how your body behaves during a cold virus, as well as the information on the type of viruses that can cause a cold, see this link.

By the way, one of the viruses that causes “colds” is… none other than the Corona Virus.

Finally, check out this link, to see how you can improve your own immune system.

Basically, our conclusion is that this virus was mostly hyperbole, and worse for some, while not affecting others at all, or they had very light symptoms and didn’t even know they were exposed.  It’s appearing more and more like the greatest and worse aspect of this entire virus was a “Gun and Right grabbing” group of people who are currently attempting to take advantage of the “national emergency” by  declaring a local or state emergency, in an effort to extend and push an agenda of “Removal of Rights by Fiat”.

By making some sort of legal-sounding order and convincing millions of people to follow that order for some period of time (in general a few months for a reasonable-person-standard) you apply a rule that isn’t law and make it “law” by fiat.  (Please go understand how “reasonable person standard” is used in law!)

A Mayor, or Governor has NO RIGHT to close legitimate businesses, cancel far-in-advance July 4th parades or prevent people from enjoying the parks (we paid for) and beaches which exist along the entire coast, based solely on their own perception, belief or interpretation.  However, we Americans are REASONABLE people and in general will listen to our “elected officials” because most folks want “leadership” and expect leadership to show in these people.

We also want and need to be helpful to our friends, neighbors and our Country in general.  At some point though, when that help is expected, assumed or even forced, it goes against our very grain as Americans.  Asking us nicely is one thing.  Putting us under orders to do something based on a Government Entity telling us to do so, is not nice and we simply don’t like it.

For an American population to stand back and allow these suggestions from the CDC and the Federal government, for a time, for the good of everyone is fine.  WE complied.  But now, to continue to arbitrarily (and against the original intent) to extend the conditions of “imposed isolation” and “private incarceration” by Mayors and Governors through obviously over-reaching “Rules” in direct contradiction to the actual data from the CDC, the President, and the Task Force is placing YOURSELVES, YOUR POPULATION at RISK of something much, much greater than “fear” or disease.

If the population continues to follow illegal orders, they risk this becoming the normal for society, the ARBITRARY “6 foot” separation rule becoming a “norm” and allowing the local governments to close your businesses permanently if they don’t “consider you essential”.

In the end, when it comes down to law suits (and it WILL come down to Civil Rights violations law suits) the government(s) can point to a reasonable person standard and say “A reasonable person would have demanded the removal of these regulations in a reasonable period of time”, and probably win the case against the parties bringing the suit.

It is time to stand up, be heard and stop allowing your local governments, particularly in the case of areas that have NOT been affected at all, to continue to extend the ban against businesses, parks, recreation, boating, biking, bars, eating establishments, barbers, salons and the rest of the “Essential Businesses” out there!

Protests In California

Image may contain: one or more people and meme, possible text that says 'WE ARE NOT PROTESTING A LOCK DOWN Gum 5.com ns.com WE ARE PROTECTING OUR RIGHTS FROM TYRANTS toatin.com'

 

Multiple protests were going on yesterday is California, across the state.

North Carolina has an on-going, Tuesday, “Rally at Raleigh”

Colorado has gridlocked Denver at least once, and promising to do it again.

The media is reticent in telling us about these events.

The government is ignoring them.

The media is also speaking negatively about the “social distancing rules” when people are refusing to wear masks (against their constitutional right to do so).

Folks, we need to kick this crap up a notch.

We need to reopen our states, our businesses and get people back together again.

California has extended the Stay home order until 31 May.

Local areas in North Carolina have extended it another two weeks.

No rhyme or reason why, certain not science related.

 

North Carolina, Today

Today’s Rally in Raleigh was peaceful, and mostly uneventful.

As of this moment, one arrested that we’re aware about came into being.

Ashley Smith, one of the leaders of the group was arrested for “Civil Disobedience”.

This Patriot doesn’t yet have the details, but will fill them in as they are given.

If you’re in North Carolina, and you believe in Freedom, then you need to join the group.

It’s for your safety!

On 11 March 2020, Rhode Island announced a door-to-door campaign to determine if people were there visiting from New York, the local “Hot Spot” to go catch the Chinese Virus or KungFlu (also known as Covid-19, SARS-CoV-2).  If they are/were visiting they were going to immediately, without any due process, to remained locked in the place they were staying for 14 days, in quarantine, disallowed from going out side under threat of arrest and fines.

That very same day, police were stopping cars with out of state plates, informing the people in the cars of the “14 day quarantine”; presumably placing the people in the car as well as officers at risk themselves of coming into contact with someone already infected.

In a little town in North Carolina, called Oak Island, rumors were rampant of police giving tickets to people from out of state.  On the 17th of March, Oak Island closed the bars, pubs, and all small “non-essential businesses”.  These included cleaning businesses, bike paths, jogging trails (there are few of those), local parks and boat ramps.

The State of North Carolina made a point of leaving the State run ABC stores OPEN (which are still open).  The majority of DMV offices, however, were closed.  Doctors offices began cancelling all appointments.  Routine “cancer screenings” were stopped, as were other, important check ups for the elderly, because, “Well, you’re stable, you don’t need to come in….”

Outer Banks shut down their bridges, stopping and turning around cars coming from “outside”, even if they owned property, they were disallowed from going into their homes on the islands of the Outer Banks.

Cruising boats (boats that have full time crews, owners and people traveling from port to port, state to state, along the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), to the Bahamas, Florida and so forth) were physically stopped and turned around along the ICW.  Fortunately, some Americans called the US Coast Guard on the local police, and they were ordered to cease and desist in preventing sailors from passing through.  This did NOT stop some of the “local self-appointed sheriffs” from stopping others from dropping an anchor in safe harbors (even though they had no intention of going ashore, but were simply seeking safety for the evening along their intended course).

The 14th Amendment states:

Amendment XIV

Section 1.

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

From this alone, we can see that Rhode Island (and the Outer Banks, Oak Island) has well over stepped any bounds, and placed themselves in jeopardy of being sued for Civil Rights Violations.

Futhermore, Governors in several states, specifically Colorado, North Carolina, Michigan and New York (Many others have done the same thing).

Some of these states are issuing “Executive orders” and stating “This makes it law”  (Colorado is a specific example of this).

We all understand there’s a danger in catching a terrible, life-threatening virus.  Many of us, especially older people, already are “smart enough” to wash our hands, and ensure we’re not exposed to people who are obviously ill.  And we hear you “Nannies” telling us we don’t KNOW who is sick!

But, there’s a fine line in being a nanny and a ninny.

There’s also a fine line between “legal” and “illegal”.

In the United States, Executive Orders are issued by an Executive, like the President or the Governor of a state. Those Orders do NOT have “force of law” where individuals are concerned.  Executive Orders are used to manage, or control an entity or agency under the President or Governor.

Executive Orders are NOT to control people, population, or to interfere with businesses.

It isn’t LEGAL for a “Governor” to sign an “edict” to tell the people where to go, how to act, or to control their movements. Controlling someone’s movements through out, into and out of ANY STATE is AGAINST Federal Law.

Our Constitution LIMITS the government, not the people.

ALL “Rights” specifically not delegated to the USA by the Constitution are reserved to the states, or to the People.

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

This doesn’t allow the states to unilaterally deny access to jobs, beaches, parks, trails, or any businesses. (In reality, this disallows Feds, State and local governments from even exercising their ‘rights’ over revenue income, like alcohol, tobacco, firearms, marijuana, etc but for some reason these are ignored by everyone and even accepted).

The Constitution’s 10th Amendment specifically disallows the Federal Government from placing mandates on states and people, like telling them “to stay home”.

Using one state as an example, Colorado, let’s look at something specific to understand the issue more clearly.

Colorado issues an executive order to “Stay home“.   This is being treated as “Law”, but the state of Colorado has a State Legislature, who creates the laws, which are then signed INTO law by the Governor (Polis).  The State Legislature took no such action.  The EO as shown in the link above orders people to stay home.

In contradiction to this, the state Covid stay-at-home-explanation states, CLEARLY;

Will I be fined or jailed if I don’t follow the stay-at-home order?

This Executive Order Ordering Coloradans to Stay at Home makes this the law, therefore breaking the order is breaking the law. Success depends on all of us doing our part to slow the spread of the virus and ultimately, save lives. We are calling for voluntary compliance by all affected; however, local law enforcement agencies have the authority to enforce this law. Local law enforcement enforces public health orders. State law enforcement will assist and support in any way requested, but our hope is that involvement by law enforcement is reserved only for the most aggravated circumstances.  We are calling on people to individually do their part. Your employer may be fined if they are not following the rules outlined in this order.

Public “health” orders.

It’s for YOUR safety, Citizen!  Go home. Stay home.  Don’t visit.  No contact with others.

Law Enforcement has no authority to “enforce public health orders” – and declaring an “emergency” or “disaster” gives a government/governor over reaching “authority” to do as he or she sees fit.

Against YOUR WILL.  Against the Will of the People.  Against businesses.  All Businesses, regardless of their product or service are essential to someone, otherwise they would not be in business. (Read this link about essential businesses)

In a Police State, the government can do anything it likes, to you, about you, to your business, to your family.  Right now, we are in a Police State.  Each state claiming to be doing this under the auspices of “For your Own Safety” are doing so “Against the Law” and “against The People”, and “against Capitalism”.

Businesses are shutting down, permanently.  Every day this continues, more and more are closing their doors forever.  They can’t make their bills, which, didn’t stop.  They can’t pay employees, whom they are letting go.  Employees are making more money staying home than going to work in some areas of the country – thus the gas station people, dollar store people are making their 7 bucks an hour minimum wage, while the “Stay at home, non-essentials” are making 400-800 dollars a week in unemployment monies.

Suicide rates are up, but there is little information at this point to show this to be true, we know it is happening.  We also know that most deaths are being attributed to the virus itself.

Human beings, by and large, are social creatures.  We love to see our friends, family, meet with people, do things together.  While some of us are more “stay at home types”, the majority go out at least once a month, while many are out every chance we get.  Some of us live a different life than most, out of doors most of the time, inside for only sleeping, rest or hiding from the heat or cold of the day.

Being “sentenced” to an imprisonment indoors for having committed no crime, for an indeterminate period of time, without the ability to even go to a beach, park, or ride your bike, or visit your favorite watering hole is criminal.

Even Criminals have due process, Civil Rights, right to a speedy trial.  And look at the number of “criminals” who’ve been released from prison to “prevent them from catching Covid-19″…  Common sense among some of these so-called leaders walked out the door and never looked back upon them.

To plant the final seed, remember these people aren’t our “leaders”.  They are elected officials.  They have NO/ZERO/NONE Authority to control, or tell an adult, human, FREE Population what to do, nor how to do it without your CONSENT.

Remove their Consent.  Do it today.  Stop these illegal activities and understand that We the PEOPLE run this country, and will no longer allow tyrants to do so.  Also understand we have the Right to decide our OWN fates, to mingle or not as WE choose, not how some Nazi/Leftist Government wants us to do….

Vote them out, recall them, order them to stand down, protest this over stepping of Constitutional Boundaries and remove them come November, from any chance of every controlling you again.

 

 

“Emphatically, NO!”

EDIT:  Facebook removed the original video.  Here’s a copy of it: https://www.bitchute.com/video/BTLii-e_UtY/

Edit 2:https://www.aier.org/article/open-up-society-now-say-dr-dan-erickson-and-dr-artin-massihi/

Dr. Dan Erickson of Bakersfield, CA just dropped multiple bombshells that completely eviscerate the official government narrative. Main points made by the doctor:

1. The answer as to whether or not we need to continue to stay at home and keep businesses closed is an emphatic “NO”.

2. Covid-19 is in fact no more dangerous than seasonal flu.

3. Quarantining is a health hazard in and of itself.

4. ER doctors are being pressured to add Covid-19 to death reports.

5. Not about science. Not about Covid-19. When they use the word “safe” – that’s about controlling you.

Time to get back to work America.

Re-shared WITHOUT permission at this time, I will attempt to get permission, but in general if someone has shared it to facebook publicly, it’s generally ok to share informational topics to the general public.

From Pat Fidopiastis on Facebook:

As anxiety levels rise due to COVID19 I just wanted to provide some essential context for some of the more alarming information being put out by officials. I have a Ph.D. in microbiology; I teach advanced courses in virus replication and pathogenesis, so if any of my opinions or facts offend you, spare me your Google Searches, you’re not telling me anything I don’t know. We’re in this together now and we must all see it through. But, we don’t need to endure it with any more added stress from the news headlines than is necessary to achieve the end goal. The situation is fluid, so some data and opinions might change going forward.

“COVID19 is 10X deadlier than the flu”.
There is nowhere near enough data to make this claim. Thus, reported case fatality rates are basically just a guess. Patients that have been tested for COVID19 are disproportionately the sickest patients because so far our limited testing capacity is reserved for them. Also, the COVID19 dataset is much smaller than the influenza dataset; bias is far greater in the much smaller COVID19 data set, especially when the calculations are swayed by numbers taken from groups of disproportionally older people stuck on cruise ships. Thus, I’ll bet my Ph.D. that fatality rates will drop dramatically as the overwhelming majority of mild cases are added to the COVID19 data set. Furthermore, COVID19 and flu viruses both have RNA genomes, however COVID19’s genome is non-segmented, while flu viruses have segmented genomes. The advantage of a segmented genome is that if multiple different flu viruses infect the same cell, they can swap genome pieces and create progeny with incredible variation. This is why our seasonal flu vaccines are usually not a good match to the types of flu viruses that are circulating, and why we are dogged by resistance to our flu drugs. It is also why my colleagues and I live in constant fear that a new variant of the flu will emerge that’s even deadlier than the 1918 strain. In contrast, COVID19 has remained relatively genetically stable and therefore should be an excellent vaccine and drug target, and it will be unlikely to surprise us with huge changes in its infection patterns.

“COVID19 spreads more easily than the flu”
There is not enough data to make this claim. The R0 (i.e. number of people each infected person will infect) reported for COVID19 ranges from 1.4 to 3.9 depending on which of the several published papers on the subject you rely on. Meanwhile the R0 for the 2009 H1N1 flu is about 1.5 and seasonal flu varies from 0.9 to 2.1. So, there is enough overlap in published R0 values to wonder which virus actually spreads easier. COVID19 appears to have entered our population back in mid-January when a traveler from Wuhan flew to Washington. As COVID19 spread freely during that time (prior to quarantines), it would have disproportionally struck down the most vulnerable first. Subsequently, human behaviors and fewer susceptible hosts would slow the spread. The dire models simply assume a constant rate of virus encountering highly susceptible hosts, which is never the case. The rate of COVID19 spread in Italy is truly staggering, but for context, there were well over 400,000 new cases of flu in Italy in a single week in January 2020. As of this writing, even though COVID19 was freely circulating for two months without any response, the United States has just about 28,000 identified COVID19 cases and about 400 deaths. There will no doubt be more cases and deaths. However, by comparison, in just the US alone, there were about 300,000 new flu cases per day, and 200 flu-related deaths per day, since October 2019. Not surprisingly, the need to stockpile ventilators for severe flu cases is an annual problem in the US; it’s not just an issue associated with COVID19. The fear of medical rationing during this COVID19 outbreak was the motivation for the “flatten the curve” mantra, in which doctors hoped to spread out patient loads to conserve resources. This fear continues to motivate the increasingly difficult restrictions we are facing.

“This situation is unprecedented.”
Our reaction to COVID19 is unprecedented for sure. However, the outbreak scenario is not unprecedented. Despite President Obama and the CDC’s efforts, the 2009 H1N1 swine flu infected roughly 60 million US citizens, resulting in about 274,000 serious hospitalizations (the high-end estimate is over 400,000 in the US), hundreds of pediatric deaths in the US, and at least 13,000 total US deaths (the high-end CDC estimate is over 18,000 deaths in the US). As that pandemic burned through the world, does anyone remember the level of fear and anxiety that we’re experiencing now? Clearly, we did not learn anything about pandemic preparedness because there have been between 140,000-800,000 hospitalizations and between 20,000 to 80,000 flu deaths each year in the US since 2009. Based on this year’s flu data, the US had roughly 300,000 new infections per day, and around 200 deaths per day since October 2019. The number of COVID19 deaths in Italy is frightening, but for context, a published paper on flu-related deaths in Italy revealed that between 2013 and 2017 there were a total of 68,000 deaths, with an average of 17,000 flu-related deaths per year in that time frame. We have a flu vaccine and oseltamivir, yet the WHO estimates there are about 500,000 flu deaths world-wide each year. Apparently, we’ve just decided to accept those numbers year after year. Amazingly, the staggering toll that the flu takes on us each year isn’t enough to motivate us to significantly increase funding for vaccine research, purchase more ventilators, or add more hospital beds; it took something “novel” to instill the level of fear that might motivate these improvements going forward.

COVID19 is “novel”
This is true. It’s clear from the COVID19 genome sequence that this is indeed a virus that only recently made the jump from an animal host to humans. However, related “mild” coronaviruses infect millions world-wide every year, with significant death rates among the elderly, and comprise a significant proportion (up to 11%) of lower respiratory hospitalizations in the US each year. So, while COVID19 is novel, as a group, coronaviruses are not novel.

“COVID19 remains viable in aerosols and surfaces for hours to days”
There is now published data to support specific claims about how long COVID19 remains viable on surfaces. However, there is a difference between “viability” and ability to cause disease in humans. First, it is important to note that details of the environment matter. To simply say that “COVID19 is viable on surfaces for days” oversimplifies the data. For example, small increases in temperature and humidity seem to dramatically interfere with COVID19 viability on surfaces. In order to conduct these experiments, researchers spray huge numbers of viruses onto a surface under defined environmental conditions, remove samples at regular intervals, and then attempt to resuscitate the viruses under ideal conditions in lab culture. In an actual outbreak scenario, in order for a virus sneezed onto a surface to infect a person, it would not only have to endure the environmental stress, but the potentially weakened (albeit viable) virus would then have to endure the various human immune system defenses in order to cause infection. COVID19 has a flimsy outer coating that is highly vulnerable to damage due to environmental stress. This means that just because a virus on a surface can be resuscitated under ideal conditions in a lab does not mean it is able to cause disease in humans. As with death rates, and other information being disseminated by officials, you’re getting worst case scenarios in order to encourage everyone to stick to the plan. However, even knowing that this is a worst-case scenario, properly wiping down surfaces with a disinfectant and practicing good hygiene should be something we do all the time, not just when we’re frightened during a pandemic.

“COVID19 can spread while you are asymptomatic”
This appears to be true and can complicate efforts to control the spread of COVID19. However, asymptomatic spread is true of many pathogens, which is why we should always be mindful of basic levels of hygiene, not just during a pandemic. For example, my students and I sampled college students for a highly communicable pathogen with a death rate of about 20%, responsible for at least 15,000 deaths annually and billions of dollars in added healthcare costs in the US. We detected asymptomatic carriage in 24% of the healthy population, and the strains were resistant to some of the strongest antibiotics we have. How many of us showing the worst side of humanity by overrunning grocery stores and hoarding food and supplies because of a theoretical COVID19 infection knows whether you’re an asymptomatic carrier of the killer we detected in so many healthy young people? Again, basic hygiene at all times and not just during pandemics is our best weapon.

“Nearly 40% of hospitalized COVID19 patients are aged 20-54”
This statistic is based on a cohort of 508 hospitalized patients, in which 38% (about 200) fell into the 20-54 age range. The vast majority (or likely all) of these individuals will recover but because they require resources, this is still a significant statistic. This information is being emphasized probably in response to images of college-aged Spring Breakers openly flouting the latest quarantine orders. The point is that there is still risk, even if you are younger. However, for context, nearly 500 children died of the flu during the 2018-19 flu season, and there were about 2,500 deaths in the 18-49 age range.

“The virus spreads by aerosols, hand to mouth contact with contaminated saliva, and hand to mouth contact with fecal material”
The virus targets ACE2 receptors, which can be found in the mouth, nose, gut, and lungs, so it has the potential for multiple entry points. Thus, each of these suggested transmission routes is supported. This is a strong reason to rely, first and foremost, on hygiene to inactivate and/or remove viruses on skin and inanimate surfaces to minimize the chances of transmission. Aerosol transmission might be mitigated by practicing “distancing” whenever possible, but this approach is simply not a good long-term solution. Notably, certain human behaviors, such as smoking or vaping, can damage the immune response in the lungs and increase the chance of a more serious COVID19 infection. Thus, countries like China with risk factors such as an aging population, cities with unhealthy air quality, and enormous numbers of smokers, are far more likely to have worse outcomes in this COVID19 pandemic.

“The pandemic will last 18 months or longer”
This is possible, but I doubt it. The dire mathematical models that are driving our response to the virus are based on extreme worst-case scenarios in order to force compliance and hopefully end this pandemic as quickly as possible. Still, rather than fret over worst-case models, it is more useful from a “sanity” perspective to look at outcomes in countries that are more like the United States. The first COVID19 case was confirmed in S. Korea on Jan 20, and as of this writing, the number of new cases slowed from nearly 1000 at its peak to about 70. Importantly, according to a recent news report,“S. Korea is experiencing these dramatic drops without locking down entire cities or taking some of the other authoritarian measures used by China to bring down its number of cases.” Apparently, the key to S. Korea’s positive outcome has been expanded testing to quickly identify new cases. To counter balance the dire predictions about the disease, there are equally dire predictions about the long-term effects of quarantines. Here’s a sample of some of the recent headlines: “Domestic violence calls increase as people shelter in place during COVID-19 outbreak”. “Job losses could quickly soar into the millions as coronavirus craters U.S. economy.” “Gun sales surge as coronavirus pandemic spreads.” “Covid-19 positive patient jumps to death in Delhi”. “The threat of quarantine looming over sick workers and school closures threatening food access and child-care shortfalls”, “The lack of paid sick leave for tens of millions of workers could be catastrophic for low-income families“, “The Economic Impact Of COVID-19 Will Hit Minorities The Hardest”. Another thing that fear will do is drive more people to go to the hospital with even the slightest symptoms, which the vast majority would not do during a normal flu season. This not only increases the spread of the virus, it will overrun hospitals, just as it drove people to selfishly wipe out supplies at stores.

The question that we have to ask ourselves is how did we get to a place where epidemic preparedness is an after-thought, yet there’s always money for massive increases in military spending? Why is it that public health officials are contacting me and my colleagues for molecular biology supplies to conduct COVID19 testing, and asking us to step in as volunteers in the event that case-loads get overwhelming? It is a constant struggle to get average citizens to stay focused on outbreak preparedness beyond each sensational news cycle. Who even thinks about Zika virus anymore? What do all of us need to do every day, not just during a pandemic, to limit the frequency of severity of disease spread? Why was it so hard for the wealthiest country in the world to rapidly mobilize our resources to develop test kits to quickly identify and quarantine people infected with the disease? I taught my 9 and 12-year old children to conduct PCR-based COVID19 testing, so it’s not an issue of technical difficulties, it’s just a matter of properly funding the problem in order to scale up resources. Decision makers in our government deemed this preparedness approach too expensive; they are all quickly learning that the costs of our current unsustainable response will be devastating. In the end, our lack of preparedness has resulted in decision-making based on limited data, painting a picture of extreme worst-case scenarios. In turn, once we move past COVID19, we’ll no doubt end up dealing with the fallout from decisions that were just as bad as the problem we were trying to solve.

National Emergency or Breaking the Constitution

In the US Constitution resides a clause basically making it illegal for the government of the US or any State to deny access to any citizens to any other state.  This is called the “Privileges and Immunities Clause” (aka “Comity Clause”).  The Constitution also contains the 14th Amendment, which will get to a bit later.

The clause states: No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities…

The Privileges and Immunities Clause as set forth in Article 4, Section 2 dictates that states may not prevent citizens from their basic rights according to that which is exhibited by civil rights statutes. In such a way, any discriminatory practices whatsoever are not tolerated. In order to be more specific, it states that citizens of all locales will be made eligible for the attainment of such outlined “privileges and immunities” set forth for all citizens.

Essentially, the Privileges and Immunities Clause prevents a state from treating citizens of other states in a discriminatory manner. Additionally, a right of interstate travel may plausibly be inferred from the clause (this is not limited to ‘interstate highways’ either, but may involve any mode of transportation, including bicycle, car, boat, airplane, bus, etc). The Privileges or Immunities Clause is Amendment XIV, Section 1, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution. Along with the rest of the Fourteenth Amendment, this clause became part of the Constitution on July 9, 1868. Text of the clause.

The Fourteenth Amendment to the U. S. Constitution reads:

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

The point here is clear, the states have no legal right to deny access to their state for any reason.

Except….. States DO have police power functions to protect the health, safety, and welfare of persons within their borders. To control the spread of disease within their borders, states have laws to enforce the use of isolation and quarantine. (Quarantine Laws)

What they can not do, is deny entry to a state based on claims of “stopping communicable diseases” based on “license plates on cars” such as Florida has attempted to do. (Florida I-95 shut down)

Of course, they can certainly (and they did) stop traffic entering the state at Georgia, and “take everyone’s temperature”.  Which accomplished blocking up traffic for miles and miles.  People trying to get home to Florida, or to their other residence (remember, a lot of people have more than one place to live and stay).

Gov. Ron DeSantis said the purpose of the new checkpoint on I-95 south is to check for people coming from the New York City area — where there were more than 33,700 confirmed cases of COVID-19, as of Sunday — and help slow the spread of the deadly virus in Florida.

“Initially I was concerned about doing this because I don’t want there to be a backup,” DeSantis said during a news conference Saturday. “But they’re doing it in a great way where the trucks are going through. We’re not worried about that. We’re just worried about the people fleeing some of those areas.”

We get it.  They want to slow the passage of this disease.  They don’t want to STOP it, but slow it.  There’s almost no way to stop it now, based on the fact we didn’t close the airlines immediately.  So, it’s going to be passed along.

We get it. We don’t want to over run medical abilities to mitigate this, or the number of beds, respirators needed and so forth.

But, common sense…. right?

Wrong. North Carolina’s Dare County, the Outer Banks, the place so many people love to go to see the beaches and ocean, is shut.  It shut down in the middle of March. They blocked road accesses, and cruisers on boats (people who travel from place to place via boat) stated the “police were stopping boaters and turning them around” at first.  It turns out they no authority to stop traffic in the Intracoastal Waterway (a Federal jurisdiction).  Sailors/Cruisers, in general, when traveling are not exposed to diseases as easily as those who are coming in contact with their co-workers constantly, for instance. They tend to remain on their boats for days and weeks at a time. (Dare County)

More common sense? No.

On Oak Island, North Carolina, the Mayor, Ken Thomas has “decreed”  a ban on the sale and possession of “dangerous weapons”, and that police will ticket people who “are non-residents” for going on the beach.  “Some for me, none for thee” mentality?  Yes.  (Here is the ACTUAL statute, that the little island community MUST, but is not, following: (nc Enacted Legislation Chapter_166A/GS_166A-19.31.html)

The following links to the article int he Port City Daily news, a local paper in the area.

https://portcitydaily.com/local-news/2020/03/30/oak-island-allows-beach-access-to-residents-but-not-visitors-prompting-discrimination-questions/

Local areas are, we understand, just simply attempting to protect human life.  We get that.  But, such restrictions on who can and can not “go to the beach” and “congregate” are discriminatory in the least, and against all manner of Constitutional right in the most.  And the state law is SPECIFIC in what local governments can and can’t do.  Oak Island and Dare County are BOTH going against those laws.  (see the enacted legislation link above).

A fairly large number of people who live in the area of Southport, NC, Oak Island and St. James are people from New York, New Jersey and the New England states.  The complaint on their local gossip site on Facebook have begun, complaining about the “New York Plates” and “Stay home” and similar remarks.

One man suggested “Blowing the bridges” (up) and blocking access.  Others are taking pictures of license plates and posting them on the Internet.

So – what has this declared pandemic wrought?  The kindergarten mentality of “tell on your neighbor”, “Big Brother” and “Let’s punish those we think are breaking a law”.

Classic Societal Breakdown has begun.

On the face of it, people want to protect themselves.  They want to protect their families. We get it.  We do too, but not at the risk of losing our society, our way of life, and our freedoms.

The access to those beaches and coastal areas are already limited by developers, and by ‘powerful people’ who want their ‘views un-compromised’ by anchored vessels near the waterway.  Or by people parking to walk on the beach for an hour.

We have to question how someone walking on a beach is going to spread a virus in the sun shine and salt air.  No, this is bigger, this is the mentality of “we don’t want to just protect our families, we want to deny access to anyone who isn’t from around here.”

This is precisely what these small towns along the coast are doing, too. Both Outer Banks and Oak Island love the tourists, they have a lot of rental properties for the “Spring Breakers” and others who come down every summer to spend time here.  They enjoy the money, and complain about the tourists.  How is that a good thing?

It’s not. But until the Federal Government steps in and says “You can’t do that!” they will continue.

At this end of all this, lies a light at the end of the tunnel.  A return to normalcy, but how far that track runs and whether that light is the other side, or an on-coming freight train, we have yet to find out.

President Trump has extended the “Social Distancing” guidelines until the end of April, another, FULL month.  For most, it has been about two weeks and the mental break down of some of these people has begun.

Those of us who have always advocating “prepping” (and many years ago, we were called “Survivalists”) understand “social distancing”, we always have.  We also prepared for things like this, but even so, many will have to, in a month, or soon after, go out for food, supplies, or something like… toilet paper.  (Not all preppers keep a year’s supply either….)

Watching this ‘apocalypse’ unfold before our eyes is both ‘enlightening’ as well as ‘terrifying’.  The thing we expected is coming true, but it’s not a natural disaster as most of us envision.  It’s not a world war, as many believed.  It’s not nuclear annihilation, as may thought.

No, it’s a virus, something you can’t see but makes you sick.  And no one knows who has it, because there’s a two week incubation period and you are likely contagious before you show symptoms.  That in and of itself is enough to stress out the calmest prepper, let alone people who have no idea what “prepping” is about.

Our advice is simple; stay home.  If you’ve not shown any signs of being ill for the two week period, then there’s no reason to stay in any longer.  If you have not isolated for two weeks, then, do it.  If you are sick, do NOT go out at all.   This applies to everyone.

The second piece of advice, is mind your own business.  Stay out of your neighbors face, business, stop taking pictures of their license plates and complaining on the Internet.  Don’t act like a “Kindergartner”.  Doing so is bad for your mental health and it’s bad for everyone else’s mental health – and eventually it will lead to bad health for everyone in the long run–when you create bad feelings, bad neighbors and create a bad name for yourself.

Side note and article.  When did this virus begin, and why is it important…. Read more at the link below.

A tale of two maps

At first, I wanted to think I was wrong. But now, it’s easy to compare. The Governor of North Carolina just announced that we have a “Stay at home” order starting on Monday.  Well, I’m an American, I’m a Veteran, I’m an old guy who is intent on staying alive, and staying in shape.

I refuse to “stay at home”.  Now, I think anyone sick should stay home. I think anyone with this virus or flu, ought to stay home (anyway).  I think if you are immune compromised, you ought to stay home.  I think if you’re over 60 and in poor health, stay the hell home.

The first map is the states currently CLOSED, with stay at home orders. The yellow means businesses are closed….  North Carolina is in Yellow at the moment, they close all the pubs, bars, restaurants over a week ago (Tuesday, 17 March 2020)

Map One – 27 Mar 2020

 

The Second map is showing in blue, all of the DEMOCRAT GOVERNORS. The RED is Republican.

Map Two – Dem vs Rep Governors

For the most part, the only states with “you’re confined to your house” are, in my words,  CommieCrats.

They are TESTING the WATERS friends.  If this were across the board, and the Republicans were doing it too, I might be less concerned.  But, at this point…. if they can get away with this, and force you to stay home, then they can force you to do anything they want. This is a test.

You’re going to fail.

You’re going to fail because most of the states have almost no cases, and if they do they are at home, or in the hospital, and it’s been two weeks of this…..

I do NOT plan to “stay home” or “inside”.  I’m NOT sick. I’ve been “quarantined already” for two weeks now.  Tuesday will be the 15 days.  I’ve had NO close contacts with anyone since the 17th other than my wife.  We’ve not been in physical contact with anyone.  I’ve been careful, washing hands, cleaning up after me, and her, and others, using hand sanitizer.  If I get this virus now… then it was not because I was not careful.

Just because I am OUT and ABOUT does not mean I’m going to get sick.

It does NOT mean I am going to catch something from some random person.

We have less than 700 people in this state (North Carolina) (allegedly) confirmed to have this virus. We’ve had 7 deaths so far.

We have a .45% mortality rate at this time.

Yes, I KNOW it could get worse.  I KNOW people can die from it.  But, they can die from getting hit by a bus.  They can die if they starve to death because “No job, no work, no money”….

Stop letting these States push you AROUND.

2A or not 2A – Sorry, Bill Shakespeare

The Covid-19, a corona virus unknown until present, has taken up all the news of late.  As well it should.

The human race and our survival is suddenly at stake.  Our rights are suppressed.  Our freedoms, suppressed.  Some states are attempting to introduce more laws against guns, gun makers, ammo, restrictions on guns and on people owning those things.

Several groups, including the III% United Patriots – or 3UP, have been clamoring for “action” against the government apparently.  Some of those people have threatened force “if all the boxes are checked”, including quarantine, etc.

This Patriot believes that, while we certainly need to maintain our rights, and stand up for them, and make it CLEAR to any local and state government that attempting to restrict our Freedoms is a no-go, also believes that at least we should also use common sense, and our God Given Talents at understanding what is really happening.

A) This virus is highly suspected to have been manufactured right there in Wuhan, China, where there is certainly a bioweapons lab.  SUSPECTED is a strong word.  It means we have intelligence on this from somewhere.  We have arrested several in connection with stealing information, lying about it, and attempting to smuggle vials out of the country.  All of them are connected to the Chinese government, one is a spy/military agent, a second a smuggler, and a third, American biomedical professor from Harvard, who, spent time in China and was being paid by the Chinese and lied about it.

B) The virus was already “floating around” in places and it hit Italy around the same time, but with more virility than it did in Wuhan.  Wuhan, and China put the kabosh on it quickly, locking people up, dragging them out and into the street, putting them in sealed, metal boxes and taking them to God Knows Where.  China, rapidly got the virus under control – because they are communists, and they will just kill anyone who doesn’t comply.

C) Italy isn’t so lucky.  They are number one on the infected/dead lists.  Italy also has a huge tourism industry, and more Chinese visit Italy than any other country.  Thus, it is not surprising, Italy caught the brunt of the disease, and they waited too long to take extreme measures.

D) Some of us believe the Chinese hid the details of this virus for up to thirty days before releasing information to the world, and it was an attempt to spread, rather than confine this disease.

E) Novel Corona Virus is actually called “2019 nCoV”,  Scientists gave the strain an interim name of 2019-nCoV, accounting for the year of discovery, its status as a “novel” virus, and its family name (CoV).  The new designation, while different, represents the same information.  I’ll just call it “The Chinese Virus” because it pisses off the Left, and everyone is claiming it is “Racist”.  In the past, diseases, foods, and many other things have been named for regions from which they originated.  I’ll stick to the “Old Ways”.

F) I believe this “Chinese Virus” was in fact a bioweapon designed specifically to attack humans, remain undetected for several days while carriers (the people infected) passed it on to many more people.  No other virus does this.  You get an infection, you start getting symptoms and are contagious.  This one is different, thus, man made.  It was designed to be passed rapidly and on a 1:2 or 1:5 basis.  Flu and cold virus have a near 1:1. You get it it, you pass it to one other.  When you pass it on a 1:2 factor, then they do the same, the mathematics tell you we’re in trouble.

G) Simple math.  I have the virus, and pass it to two, so we have 2 people, who pass to two more.  That is 2^2 (or 2 to the second power, four).  If this happens each day for 30 days, each of the persons passing to two more people, the total number of infected becomes: 1073741824 in just 30 days.  In two months, or 60 days that number jumps to 1.152921505×10¹⁸ or 115,292,150,500,000,000 – more people than live on Planet Earth.

H) We assume that only two are infected from each person.  We assume it goes unchecked for 60 days.  We assume everyone can catch it.  We assume no one is doing anything to stop it.  Obviously, we are, as are the people in other countries.  The problem arises though, that some are being completely overwhelmed, like Italy.  There are only so many hospital beds.

I) Given the fact this disease causes pneumonia-like respiratory problems and many (but not all) of the patients require at the peak of the disease, artificial breathing assistance from respirators (requiring intubation-the process of putting a tube over ones trachea tube and machine-breathing for them) we will see a time when hospital beds run out, there will be not enough respirators, and not enough medical professionals to assist the ill.  People will simply die from lack of care.  The death toll will increase dramatically.

Americans are used to freedoms, they are used to coming and going as they wish, and it’s a good freedom, it should NEVER be willingly given up.

HOWEVER, this is the entire human race we’re talking about here, and the whole “social distacing” thing they’ve come up with is a way to prevent us all from coming in to direct contact with others and thereby spreading the disease.

This isn’t about over reaching governments stopping people from having meetings.

This is about the survival of the entire human race at this point.

So… it’s not about 2A or not 2A;  it is about “To Be, or Not to Be…”

Stay home.  Don’t spread this disease.  Don’t come in contact with others.  Give it a few days.

The economy IS going to suffer for a time.  We’re going to go without certain things, for a time.  Life is GOING to be tough for a time – at least for the non-Preppers out there.

We do not have the ability to clone humans yet.  Pray we don’t have to do that, or, we become extinct because of lack of common sense on this planet.  Go home, stay there, watch television or better yet, turn it off and spend time with your loved ones.

Tomorrow is not promised, friends.

Survival is imperative, not socially drinking with your friends tonight.

 

Climate Change: Deniers vs Hoaxers

Climate Hoaxers want you to believe the tiny pieces of data they give you are the big picture, when in fact, they are simply cherry picked data.

The Hoaxers wants you to believe that if YOU find a piece of data that debunks theirs, you are the one doing the cherry picking, and this is a standard tactic they do.

The “Deniers” – like me, know the truth. We’re old enough, smart enough and well-educated in the sciences to see the facts aren’t all there at all.

The follow YouTube Video by Tony Heller, explains a lot more than the Left will explain. Not only has he managed to show why they chose the years they chose, but he fills in the blanks. You know, all the years before and after which actually indicate there is NO MAN MADE CLIMATE CHANGE.

Imagine that.  Please watch the whole video in another window, then drop back in here and finish reading.

https://youtu.be/8455KEDitpU

I’ve mentioned this before.  As a child I recall seeing Newsweek and Time magazine, as well as some of the news papers like Detroit Free Press and Detroit News giving the dangers of America front page news; pollution, spewing exhaust into the air, and that we’d be an Ice Age before the year 2000.  I remember the later changes in the same papers and magazines talking about how Global Warming would kill us, and cities would be inside of Domes in the year 2000.

None of that came to pass.

If you watched the whole video you can now SEE visually, why Man Kind has had little to NO effect on the rise of water levels, or the warming of the planet.  You can also see that the graphs are only TINY PIECES of a LARGER picture.

The Larger picture is what truly tells the story.

“Settled Science” rarely is “settled”.  No one anywhere , unless they are crazy, believes Gravity isn’t real, so there are exceptions.  But physics is a field upon which the human race has barely scraped the surface.  Stellar physics isn’t “100% settled”.  Hydrodynamics isn’t perfect (they can’t predict the path of a hurricane for more than two days out, even though the Earth’s atmosphere is a “liquid” of sorts).

Anthropomorphic Climate Change – “man-created” climate change may occur on a very tiny scale, around cities where we’ve added massive amounts of concrete, asphalt and, you guessed it, cars and exhaust fumes.  SURE, we’ve all seen cities full of smog.  Sure, we’ve seen the dangers of breathing that stuff.  But, we’ve also seen Mother Nature clean the air in a few hours.  We’ve also seen Mother Nature rebuild woods and forests taken by forest fires.

In time, Mother Nature cleanses the Earth and puts back what man has borrowed.  Trees reduce CO2 to Oxygen.  The ocean’s plankton does the same job, converting CO2 in the ocean back into oxygen and giving it to the creatures who live there.

There are more trees in the North American Continent than there were when people FIRST moved here (and I’m not just talking about White People, either, I’m talking about ANY PEOPLE FROM ANYWHERE).

Climate Change has been on-going for the life of this tiny speck of sand on which we live, and it will continue.

It is driven by an extremely powerful force of nature called “The Sun”, or Sol, our nearest Star.  The sun has it’s ups and downs, it has sun spots, and lack of sun spots – massive magnetic storms on the surface – which cause stellar winds (solar winds) which in turn affect the planet’s magentosphere, which, in turn affects our weather.  There are pockets of dust in space, which we go through from time to time, darkening the sun slightly, and causing cooling.

There are volcanoes, earthquakes, tectonic plate movements, seasons, El Nino, La Nina and other weather events, all of them culminating in effects.  The largest, most pervasive of all weather events causing climate change is the simplest thing imaginable.  Water, in the form of rain.

Rain take mountains and creates hills, sand, breaks of rocks and boulders, blocks roads, causes floods and creates erosion.

Erosion takes islands away.  Erosion creates the sand on the beach.  Erosion make the Appalachian mountains into hills, and some day the Might Rocky Mountains will be like the Appalachians, small, not large, the Appalachian’s will be hills.

This has nothing to do with man kind or CO2 emissions.

The last thing I want to say here is that we’re not “Climate Change Deniers”, but rather “Climate Change Realists”.  We know climate change happens, but it doesn’t happen because of CO2 and other exhaust emissions from our cars and use of fossil fuels.  It occurs naturally, and will continue to occur naturally.

Just as a test of this… ask ANY climate change hoaxer, “How will we stop Yellowstone from erupting?” They will sputter and tell you you’re changing the subject, or deflecting, or even worse, call you a name.  Then ask them, “How are we going to stop a dangerous asteroid from destroying the Earth in moments?”

They will fall apart.  Those two things are extreme dangers and can happen at any second of any day of our lives from here on out.  I don’t hear anyone worried about something that will decimate the Earth or destroy it outright in seconds, but hear how we’re all going to die in a decade.

Anthropomorphic Climate Change is a HOAX, pure and simple.  It’s a device to destroy Capitalism, to force the rich to be poor, and to force the poor to get something for nothing.  It’s a Socialist PLOT, not a scientific study.

Climate Change is a Cult.

Climate Change Realists are those who eschew junk science for facts.

Lies about the Second Amendment

On 27 March 2018, John Paul Stevens, a former judge, and served as an “associate justice” on the supreme court, wrote an Op-Ed piece for the New York Times.
 
In the article, he made a couple of fallacious statements. The first of these statements goes:
 
“Concern that a national standing army might pose a threat to the security of the separate states led to the adoption of that amendment, which provides that “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.” Today that concern is a relic of the 18th century.”
 
First, his OPINION is that this concern is a “relic of the past”. In fact, this concern is precisely why the America people will never be debarred the use or ownership of ARMS. The VERY Government that is attempting to ban guns is doing so because they plan something illegal, immoral or tyrannical.
 
There was no standing army when the Second was created. The official US Army came into being AFTER the Second Amendment was ratified. There was no “national guard” until 1933. So the argument is specious at best, downright wrong and inconsistent with actual, legal thinking either of “that time period” or now.
 
His next misstep comes in the form of a fabrication.
 
For over 200 years after the adoption of the Second Amendment, it was uniformly understood as not placing any limit on either federal or state authority to enact gun control legislation.
 
In truth, the Second Amendment is not “so understood” by people who actually “understand” the law. In FACT, the Second Amendment DOES PLACE limits – one specifically, on ALL forms of Government in the United States. That limit is places upon the states and the Feds and prevents them from “Infringement”. Period. End of statement.
 
The Second Amendment is NOT a Rights Granting statement. It is an imperative, ordering the government, the courts, the Executive NOT to interfere with the Rights of the People.
 
It isn’t the government granting us a Right. It’s not giving men/women the ability to “change as necessary” those Rights. It is an EDICT against the change of those Rights.
 
That a man show served with the Supreme Court takes this extreme view should be a lesson to one and all that there are people that WISH TO REMOVE YOUR RIGHT to own any sort of arms.
 
The next place he stepped in his own lies is as follows:
 
“When organizations like the National Rifle Association disagreed with that position and began their campaign claiming that federal regulation of firearms curtailed Second Amendment rights, Chief Justice Burger publicly characterized the N.R.A. as perpetrating “one of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the word fraud, on the American public by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime.””
 
First of all, the NRA is made up of people like you and I. While I am no longer a member of the NRA (they became too Liberal for my tastes). The PEOPLE have the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. The NRA was founded to keep that right in place. The Gun Owners of America was an answer to the Liberalism of the NRA.
 
The only Fraud here is Justice Stevens. And probably Warren Burger.
 
In effect, this is more proof they want your guns. And also, in effect, in 2008 they overturned that ruling, and you will note that Stevens was one of the dissenters. In other words, he was wrong. And still is wrong.
 
“In 2008, the Supreme Court overturned Chief Justice Burger’s and others’ long-settled understanding of the Second Amendment’s limited reach by ruling, in District of Columbia v. Heller, that there was an individual right to bear arms. I was among the four dissenters.”
 
The Left LOVES to use the phrase “long settled” or “settled science” as if the last word on everything from everyone has made this decision.  The last word will never be spoken on this, because there will always be “dissenters” of course; and that’s part of the greatness of living in America in the first place.  The ability to have your own opinion and voice it.  However, just because you believe something is “settled” the way YOU like it doesn’t mean it is.  I personally believe we’re at a crossroads and we are about to step into the abyss over this.
 
In reality, in life, both now and 1776, there are people who “feel” as if guns should be outlawed, or the people who own them are “crazy” or “nuts” or “insane”.  Arms are what the Founding Fathers said, and what they meant, and what they wanted for all time.  Not some made up, pretend re-defining of a phrase.
 
The very images of the Musket next to an AR15 is proof enough that some people are so caught up in their “feelings” they can’t grasp simple English.
 
The Second Amendment makes NO distinction on technology, no distinction on types of weapons, but clearly and succinctly states “Arms”.
 
Arms is not a “fire arm” alone. Arms stands for all possible weapons with which to fight, defend and could include bottles, cans, knives, swords, nuclear weapons, tanks and battle cruisers, not to mention AR15s.
 
The Left, I submit has it wrong on all counts.
 
It is unconstitutional to take away our Arms. It is illegal. It is wrong and immoral of Federal workers (yes, Judges are still “workers” in the strictest sense of the word) to attempt to Legislate away our Rights. What’s more, it is out right treasonous of ANYONE in an elected or appointed position to demand or press for the removal of our Natural rights to Self Defense. The VERY ACT of doing so is WHY you have the Right in the first place.
 
In the last paragraph, Stevens makes his clean cut case for banning, although he doesn’t state it in such words.
 
“…would eliminate the only legal rule that protects sellers of firearms in the United States — unlike every other market in the world. It would make our schoolchildren safer than they have been since 2008 and honor the memories of the many, indeed far too many, victims of recent gun violence.”
 
By, Golly, it’s for the CHILDREN.
 
It’s a proven fact that we have less crime where more guns are available to normal, every day citizens. Criminals have a way of finding guns and other weapons all the time, regardless of laws preventing them from purchasing them or using them in crimes. It’s already against the law to commit crimes…..and yet, criminals still commit crimes.
 
The Media too, is culpable here. They refuse to carry stories about the “Good Guy with a Gun” who stopped a crime or mass shooting.
 
Folks, this is all-out war now. An UnCivil War. They want your guns.
 
Act accordingly.

Climate Change, Socialism and You

I remember reading Time Magazine and Newsweek, in the 1970s, and perhaps even early in my childhood, and wild statements about the coming doom of the human race, indeed, the whole planet from global cooling.

There were articles in papers, and many “scientific” magazines regarding “Global Cooling” and “The Coming Ice Age”. Enough to scare a little kid into believing some of the stuff.

I mean, after all, these words were coming from Scientists, people whom I held in high regard as a child – and to be fair still do at my many-decades removed from childhood-age.

At my old age now I’m skeptical. Skeptical of any thing that comes out from scientists, but especially from the media, alledged to be from the mouths of “scientists”. Especially of the “98% of scientists agree” nonsense.

I evaluate everything through my own brain, through my own intellect and I don’t just “believe” what people tell me. No matter which side of the political spectrum they might reside. Science is rarely, if ever, “settled”. There’s always room for growth, understanding, education and gaining new knowledge. Some sciences are hard science, without which things wouldn’t work. Gravity. Mathematics. Most physics.

Certainly, mathematics is reasonably stable. Most physics, is stable, with few new discoveries being made.

Fluid Dynamics is certainly one of the branches of physics employed in various aspects of the Earth sciences. Remember, that the atmosphere is technically a liquid. Hydrodynamics is the study of fluids in motion. All of these are connected. As are other aspects of physics, such as stellar physics, solar winds, space weather and the effects all of these things have upon the atmosphere of a planetary body, such as Earth. So, it makes sense that scientists would use “physics” to explain various aspects of the atmosphere. But, do they? I question whether they use ALL of the resources available, and the inter-disciplinarian studies of other sciences.

Somewhere in 1975 a man named Wallace Smith Broecker coined the phrase “Global Warming” inadvertently when he published a paper titled: “Climate Change: Are we on the Brink of a Pronounced Global Warming?”

In the 1980s, the “Ozone Hole” was discovered after one of the first space shuttles went up. That was a “scare”, and precipitated the “chlorofloro-carbon” scare and the aim to remove such things from spray cans everywhere. Because, you know that huge ozone layer is up there protecting us from skin cancer and too much ultraviolet radiation from the sun. (*Because, the sun is hot, it’s a massive thermonuclear, on-going, fusion reaction that isn’t going to cease any time soon… producing a LOT of heat and light. Keep this in mind as you read.)

In the 1990s, the phrase changed from “Global Cooling” to “Global Warming” to bring things back around to the 1975 paper. (Remember, in the 1960s and 1970s, global COOLING was a key phrase.)

In the latter years of 1990s, and early into the “21st Century” the phrase “Global Warming” to “Climate Change”.

Throughout all of these word and phrase modifications, this author became “suspicious”. By the time a dozen or more years went by after “Global Cooling” and the public sense of reality settled in, the new phrase came into being because the public was insufficiently “alarmed” and something needed to “trigger” the new generations of “children” and “wannabe climate experts”.

If you can keep people confused, or better, angry at their surroundings, even if the reasons are made up, you can keep them disconnected, uneducated, less-than-knowledgeable and certainly in an uproar for “change”.

Karen Christiana Figueres Olsen is a Costa Rican diplomat with 35 years of experience in high level national and international policy and multilateral negotiations. She was appointed as Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in July 2010, six months after the failed COP15 in Copenhagen.

Ms. Figueres Olsen is actually a Socialist. Her party? National Liberation Party of Costa Rica, and that party is a member in the Socialist International organization.

Parts of the following is from her own mouth. Original is from an article from a news source in Lubbock Texas that appears to have been removed now (http://lubbockonline.com/interact/blog-post/donald-r-may/2015-02-27/united-nations-official-admits-purpose-global-warming#.V-nGUOM1HmE ) :

United Nations Official Admits the Purpose of the Global Warming Hoax is
to Destroy Capitalism

It has been clear since the Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet Union
collapsed that Global Warming (aka Climate Change) is a Marxist Hoax.

When the dream of a Soviet Utopia collapsed, Marxists in the United
Nations, the United States, and Europe needed a quick Plan B dedicated to
the destruction of Capitalism. Plan B is the claim that the normal human
use of fossil fuels could somehow catastrophically change the climate of
Earth and has all along been a Marxist plan to divert trillions of dollars
from developed nations to the United Nations. The goal has been to
replace Capitalism with a World economy totally under the control of the
United Nations.

The United Nations climate chief admitted on 03 February 2015 that the
primary goal of the Global Warming hoax has been the gradual progressive
destruction of Capitalism,

“This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given
ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development
model, for the first time in human history”, Ms Figueres stated at a press
conference in Brussels.

“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting
ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time to
change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least
150 years, since the industrial revolution. That will not happen overnight
and it will not happen at a single conference on climate change, be it COP
15, 21, 40 – you choose the number. It just does not occur like that. It
is a process, because of the depth of the transformation.”

In other words, Climate Change is a HOAX perpetrated on the world, and upon gullible people. Left leaning people who want so desperately to change the world to some Socialist Utopian model they will do literally anything to accomplish this goal.

Socialism is the goal. The destruction of a Capitalist society is the goal. Forcing oil and gas prices to be so high no one can afford fossil fuels, forcing electric devices on us (which are ALL susceptible to EMP for instance, and expensive now. You can’t even charge an electric vehicle without the need for fossil fuels!)

Greta Thunberg recently received her “15 minutes of fame” while she because a world star “sailing” on a sailboat to the UN from Europe to preach at America. Greta (and father) no more “sailed” that ship than I did (and I’m a sailor). She caused consternation among the Left Wingers on our sailing and Cruising forums on Facebook for weeks.

The Left would post some victorious post regarding this “brave child” and the Right would debunk it. Moderators would in turn block and ban people for rude comments – or politics. Global Warming IS POLITICAL, NOT SCIENCE.

While the gullible continue to scream and shout, the rest of us have come to the learned conclusion that this hoax must stop, and we must stop teaching our children to act out in public and make them “super stars” on a stage planked with lies and falsehoods.

The human race may indeed, someday, succumb to “climate change” but it will not be brought on by ourselves, rather by the nearest start to us, the Sun. Sol is burning bright and hot, goes through cycles every 11 years for sunspots, and over a 22 year cycle where the output increases and decreases, causing more or less weather on the planet.

The Human Race has a short term, one-generational memory. They can’t comprehend or remember what happened 25-30 years ago with ease, but we can certainly compare last year with this year and say “It’s hotter now than it was last year”.

Hurricanes come and go with the seasons, the ocean’s conveyor belts work because of seasonal changes, not because of CO2 in the atmosphere. The funny thing about science is that little Fluid Dynamics portion of physics I mentioned before. We can predict pretty accurately what a swirl in the water will do, same as a swirl in the atmosphere. However, you can’t predict with any accuracy the path of a hurricane for more than three days at most, even with the best computers on the planet.

Yet, scientists want us to believe we’re all going to be dead in twelve years from our own carbon footprints?

Not buying it any more. Even though I might have been a gullible child once, long ago, I’m certain NOT a gullible adult, I certainly question everything, and “belief” in a particular “religion” is something I’m not going to take lightly. Including, but not limited to “Climate Change”.

The “Climate Deniers” like myself certainly DO grasp the difference in climate and weather, we certainly are just as educated (if not more so in some instances) than the so called “climate experts”. Calling me a “climate denier” is the same as calling me a “racist”. Neither is true, but it makes someone else feel good about themselves because they can’t explain their own science either.

No, friends, climate change didn’t start because of humans. Climate Change has been on-going since the day the Earth coalesced out of star stuff and interstellar debris, long after the fires of Sol ignited, and has continued for roughly 4.5 billion years, a span of time no one can even truly comprehend with our short (maybe sixty good years) lifespan.

We’re NOT going to die in twelve years as predicted by a 16 year old child. Or by a Socialist. Nor by twenty five of the best scientists on the planet, because, simply, they aren’t the best if they aren’t questioning their OWN science at this point, given all the hiding of data, gyrations in facts, leaving-out of information, and out and out lies.
We have a rough chance of about 1 in 300,000 of being hit by a massive comet or asteroid that will destroy this planet and most life on it. Nothing over which to lose sleep.

Chances of a plane crash, 1 in 11 million.

Chances of being hit by lightning is roughly 1 in a million.

Chances of winning the lottery, roughly 1 in 52,000,000.

Chances of dying from “Climate Change” 1 in 7.7 BILLION. Essentially zero for all intents and purposes.

Worry about getting your lottery numbers right on the next ticket and stop agonizing over death by over heating when the ice all melts. I’ll be out sailing the coasts of West Virginia if it actually happens.

Declaration of War – The Left has stated their true intentions

Beto O’Rourke said, “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”
“We’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore,” the former Texas congressman said during the third Democratic presidential debate, hosted by ABC News.
“If the high-impact, high-velocity round, when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed to do that so that you would bleed to death on a battlefield … when we see that being used against children,” O’Rourke said. He recalled talking to a woman in Odessa, Texas, who had watched her 15-year-old daughter bleed to death after she was shot by a man wielding an AR-15 late last month.
This statement is, without a doubt, a declaration of war on Americans’ Rights and Freedoms.  Guns in the hands of the men and women of this country isn’t just a right, it’s a responsibility, one that as Citizens of this great country, we have duty to observe.
With his pandering comments, he has outted the Left as Gun-Grabbers, something they repeatedly talk down to us about, saying “No one is coming for your guns!”
Well, that part is correct.  The government hasn’t the man power to take our guns.  There are not enough trained people in the US Government, armed or not, to come and take the millions of weapons from the hands of law abiding citizens in the USA.  They can’t even stop CRIMINALS who get them illegally on the streets, so they sure as hell aren’t going to take our guns.
However, this actual “Declaration of War” is exactly what the Left has been awaiting, someone to stick his foot in his mouth, and “make it real” for both sides.  Do you, as an American, sit on your collective asses and say and do nothing now?  Do you wait?  What DO you do?  Let’s continue….
Ladies and Gentlemen, I submit that we are already deep into Civil War 2.0. We have been for some time now. Obama brought on the “Great Oppression” – Bill Clinton and Janet Reno began the process. They demonized “militia groups” because they needed to point at someone as “evil”. The Militia is seen as a “Government Hating” entity, and is made up of mostly white people. (US Census puts whites in the US at roughly 76% of the population, Blacks at about 17%) – thus you will see such a disparity in all aspects of life.
For informational purposes, US Code states:
10 U.S. Code § 246. 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.
The militia then, is made up of all the of people, who are male, 17 years of age up to 45 years of age, and does NOT exclude women, nor those over the age of 45. At 62 years of age, this “old gentleman” has carried his share of various types of weapons, and used them. With the new technology of eye surgery, I now have better vision (especially in my iron sights eye) than I had at the age of 10 years old.
Obama further eroded rights of Americans, if not in deed, certainly in words. “Bible and gun clingers”. What Clinton and Reno started on Ruby Ridge, and Waco have been realized by many as a wake up call about the attack on American’s God Given Rights to defense, not just of oneself, but of the nation.
When the Founding Fathers put together the Constitution, it was meant to create, and subsequently preserve the Republic. “A Republic,” said Franklin, “if you can keep it.” Keep it we will.
Civil Wars do not begin with gun shots. They begin with disagreement. Usually over some political aspect of the country in which they take place. The American Civil War did NOT start over Slavery. While Slavery was certainly one of the main concerns of both side, and has been pushed to the forefront of history, the truth is, each State has rights over it’s own governance, that the Federal Government may not touch. And so too, the People have reserved to themselves ALL RIGHTS not given to the states.
There is a fine balance that is out of kilter now. Some states wish to ban guns. Some don’t. Some in the Federal government want to ban them, while others do not. Above and beyond the State or the Federal governments however, are the Rights of the People.
The Second Amendment is extremely clear.
The Militia, made up of the PEOPLE, the Rights of those People to keep and Bear Arms SHALL NOT be infringed.  The phrase “well-regulated” isn’t “government run”, it means “trained”.  People who train to defend the towns, villages and states are the militia, not “national guard”.  The National Guard didn’t exist until 1933
Let us be clear… the Civil War 2.0 started over political disagreement. It will be argued for centuries in the future how, when, why, where and who started it, but it is as simple as the Bill of Rights. No GOVERNMENT, State or Federal MAY touch the Right of the People to protect and defend their homes, state or homeland.
The Second Amendment is the back up to the First. You have an absolute right to voice your opinion of the government, government officials, follow your own religion, or to be a journalist and tell the truth. The Second Amendment is there to protect that first one, and all the others. It’s not the “First” in the list of rights, but certainly as important as the First is.
When a person running for the highest office in the land states, unequovcably, “Yes, you WILL turn in your guns” – that is an open declaration of war against the People of this country. Not the few that own guns, ALL OF THEM.
There will be those that support such a person, and they will, ultimately, be on the losing side of that war.
Today – 14 September 2019 – marks the true beginning of Civil War 2.0. Shot still have yet to be fired (unless you count the Texas, California and Ohio mass shootings, by Liberals and Bernie supporters, which, *I* DO COUNT as first shots). But the war of words just heated to the point of white hot.
Beto O’Rourke called the FBI against Patriots who “threatened” him – they merely asked if he was going to lead the charge to take the guns or send his minions…. so, truthfully, what is a “threat”?
O’Rourke made the first threat. HE personally declared war. Will he become President? Highly doubtful, but Leftists, Marxists and Gun Haters are flocking to the pandering fool, making themselves targets as well.
The Law of Unintended Consequences stands clear. If you poke a sleeping bear with a stick, you’re liable to be eaten that afternoon.
The choice now, is yours, People of the United States. We are the Government. The Government doesn’t control us. We are not going to sit and let anyone take our guns. We will fight. We are already organizing against such a thing.
If the Country wants an Uprising, it will get one.
My humble opinion is that people like this O’Rourke character should slowly back into the shadows, go back to whatever he was doing before, be quiet, hide, and stop poking the bear.

Conspiracies, Gun Control and You

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”.

  1. Pedophilia… of EPIC proportions.
  2. GUN CONTROL
  3. Socialists, Communists and Muslims in Government
  4. 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.

Remembering 9-11-01

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.

 

Cross Roads of History

Two mass shootings in two days, a third the week before, and yesterday, Philadelphia and several police officers wounded.  The Mayor of Philadelphia isn’t even calling for “strong measures”, he simply wants “Gun Control Laws” put in place now.
Others on the Left are screaming bloody murder about guns.  The problem is threefold.
1) Mass shooters were ALL liberals, Democrats, connected to Antifa.
2) Philadelphia had CRIMINALS and more than likely stolen or illegally obtained weapons.
3) Shall NOT be Infringed is actually a “thing”.
A couple of days ago, we posted a blog entry about the Second Amendment
which we highly recommend you read to understand the Second Amendment.
The call for gun bans is becoming strong, almost a tidal wave.  Mother Nature’s tidal waves are very difficult to stop.  However, we need a tsunami of Patriots to answer this call.  This is not about the NRA.  There is no such thing as “common sense gun laws”.  There is only, in the end, restrictive laws that will eventually end up in confiscation of weapons from Americans who’ve done nothing wrong in their lives.
There are MILLIONS OF US with guns who’ve never committed a crime, rarely even received a traffic citation, held security clearances, worked for the government, worked with our churches, helped people our whole lives.  And criminals do not follow laws.
Below we will give you some pointers.  Nothing is hard and fast.  There’s no “formula”.  There’s no “talking points”.  There will be no rules.  There will be only the war of words – as the idea is to keep that “War of Words” going, and prevent the bloodshed that will happen if we don’t win this thing.
No one, not ANYONE wants to have to kill a neighbor over anything.  No one wants a second, bloody Civil War, but yet, my friends, we’re in the midst of that “War of Words” now.
The first shots were fired in California, El Paso Texas and Dayton a few days ago.
We are at a crossroads in history here friends.
You are no longer going to be able to sit still and continue watching. You MUST be heard.
Here’s how you do it:
  1. Messages to friends, on Facebook and other Social Media. Make it CLEAR you will not support gun laws or confiscation.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Understand that you are one person. You must be bigger – as a group than the bad guys are.
  5. 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!)
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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…….
  10. America can not fall to these Leftists, and these organizations calling for Gun Bans.  We must NEVER ALLOW IT.
Advice is free. Knowledge is power. You make a difference, but only if you work at it.

Oregon, Antifa and Violence

https://www.oregonlive.com/portland/2019/08/nearly-100-groups-to-join-mayor-in-warning-aug-17-protesters.html

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.

Ridiculous.

Just be on alert.

The Second Amendment

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.

Militias

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.

National Guard

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.

Technology

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.

Infringement

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.”

Literacy

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”.

George Soros?

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….

Islam is NOT a religion

Islam is not a religion.  It’s an invasion instruction manual, a book on suppression of others, and a book on hate.

This is an image taken from an instruction manual on how to bind a woman before stoning her to death.

islam

This image is a real life image taken from a news article showing the roasting-alive deaths of Iraqi men.

Islam

Posting them and commenting will get you banned on Twitter, Facebook, and some of the other Social Media sites.

Telling the truth about Islam will get you suspended or barred.

But, telling the truth about these crimes, and these hateful people, their “religion” and their way of life is absolutely necessary.

The Left has been suppressing Americans for FAR too long.  We’ve ALLOWED them to do it to us, because we were shamed into shutting up.  No one wants to be pointed out and called a racist or worse, because we know we’re not.

Most people do not want to have conflict.

ENOUGH!

Accept the Conflict and FIGHT BACK.

Suppression of the Right

Seven day ban for telling the truth.
 
In 2017 the US Supreme Court in Matal v Tam rules there affirmed there is NO restriction in the United States on speech, even if it is considered by some to be “hateful”. The Federal Government can NOT limit speech, including in Social Media.
 
(Supreme Court unanimously reaffirms: There is no ‘hate speech’ exception to the First Amendment -https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2017/06/19/supreme-court-unanimously-reaffirms-there-is-no-hate-speech-exception-to-the-first-amendment)
 
In Packingham v. North Carolina, also in 2017, the Justicies ruled that STATES can not bar people from using Social Media to express themselves (even in ways that are disgusting to many of us).
 
“A fundamental First Amendment principle is that all persons have access to places where they can speak and listen, and then, after reflection, speak and listen once more,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote. Given the fact that social-media platforms in particular allow for this kind of free communication, and that the constitution protects the right to exchange, the justices recognized this case was widely societally important, with Kennedy writing:
 
Here, in one of the first cases the Court has taken to address the relationship between the First Amendment and the modern Internet, the Court must exercise extreme caution before suggesting that the First Amendment provides scant protection for access to vast networks in that medium.”
 
(The US Supreme Court just ruled that using social media is a constitutional right – https://qz.com/1009546/the-us-supreme-court-just-decided-access-to-facebook-twitter-or-snapchat-is-fundamental-to-free-speech/)
 
 
Thus, folks it APPEARS that an organization such as facebook has NO RIGHT to limit one group of people in their own “community standards” and not OTHERS in their same community standards.
 
Time and time again, I’ve seen calls for attacks on people, “Punch a Nazi” (where people are being characterized as Nazi’s for the fun and satisfaction of the Left), for attacks on Trump, his followers, and White Men. This is allowed under Facebook rules, as reports (and I’ve made a few) come back saying “This is not against our community standards.
 
A friend, Matt Bracken has received MULTIPLE bans over the past year for merely mentioning a certain group that pretends to follow a certain religion. I received the same ban….
 
Because that *IS* against “Community Standards”.
 
I am openly calling on Facebook to review these standards and as you are an American Company to start abiding by the US Constitution.
 
Social Media is a PUBLIC PLATFORM; it is not a “private company”. You put yourselves in that venue by creating the ability to give everyone a soap box, and yet, from some you yank the soap box from under them when they want to have their say.
 
It is time for this to be fixed. It is time for Facebook, Twitter, and all the other so-called Social Media organizations to either curl up and die, or open up and all all sides of a conversation.
 
There are other social media sites, and I will choose to use them, where there’s no advertising, where there’s no censorship.
 
Some will argue “It isn’t censorship unless the government does it” (Including me, because I’ve run private BBSes, not public forums). Facebook includes PUBLIC FORUMS and by all Rights, they need to open and stop suppressing the speech of the Right, and only passing the speech of the Left.
 
Ladies and Gentlemen, we are in the MIDST of a Civil War – right now it is a war of words, but it will combust into a shooting, running, fighting, bloody battle if the suppression continues.
 
I promise it will NOT go well for organizations like Facebook, Twitter and some of the others who have continued to suppress more than half the voices in this country in this means.
 
Call this “hate speech” if you wish. Call it whatever you like. Ban me again if you want, but you will NOT silence this voice.

Gun Ban in Boulder (CO) – NOT!

Boulder tried to ban magazines, bullets, guns, bump stocks.. you name it.  But, nope.  The people, 99% of them have refused to comply.

https://joeforamerica.com/2018/12/2nd-amendment-win-boulder/

Colorado has a preemption law in its state constitution that clearly states what Boulder has done is not legal.

C.R.S. 29-11.7-103:

A local government may not enact an ordinance, regulation, or other law that prohibits the sale, purchase, or possession of a firearm that a person may lawfully sell, purchase, or possess under state or federal law. Any such ordinance, regulation, or other law enacted by a local government prior to March 18, 2003, is void and unenforceable.”

You see friends, you CAN win against “the Government”.  Because, we outnumber them 60 to 1 (ok, I made that up.  There are about 110,000 Federal Agents at the IRS, unknown number at FBI, CIA, Homeland Security all added up… unclear).  But we will outnumber them.

Refuse to give up your rights.  No matter what.

 

 

“Act of Terror”

Pam Geller wrote an article on the 22nd of December 2018 highlighting the murder of two, young Danish hikers in Morocco.  (https://gellerreport.com/2018/12/female-tourists-beheaded-2.html)

The scum that did this are connected to ISIS (as stated by Danish authorities).

But, the problem is, Islam is also connected to them.

Islam IS the problem.

Those Progressives in Europe are cutting their OWN throats with the “hate crime” legislation and rulings.  Far too many countries have opened their borders to these murderers, and people still, somehow believe that Islam is “a religion of peace”.

America is doing the same thing, in a smaller way.  We’ve had at least one woman murdered here by these criminals, beheaded at her place of business in Oklahoma in 2014.  Little was done.  Yes, he was caught, but was it treated as a crime or a terrorist attack?  He had been fired for “proselytizing” (Islam).  He was shot by … a citizen with a gun, one of the executives on duty that day.

What came from the FBIs mouth NEXT was the typical propaganda of the Obama Administration:

A law enforcement official said the F.B.I. had not found any connection between Mr. Nolen and the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, or other groups. “It’s not a typical workplace response, and given the current environment it is very alarming and is something we are closely looking into,” one of the officials said. “So far, there is no nexus to terrorism we are aware of.”

This scumbag, Alton Nolan was found guilty of murder in 2017 but nothing was done for the family.  The woman murdered can’t be brought back. The defense attempted to argue the man was mentally ill (Perhaps in an effort to remove any prison time).

Maybe, people like this SHOULD be viewed as mentally ill and removed from the streets immediately?  I know that the Left will scream about it, then try to say that “All religions are mentally ill”.  Or somehow spin the topic back onto the Right.

This is not a Right vs Left topic.  This is a Western Civilization vs Islam Topic.

The Danes, the Brits, the Norwegians, and most of the other “White European” countries are experiencing this anomaly, all because of “Open Borders”, all because Progressives want the Islamics to come into their countries to PROVE they are good people.

Well, they haven’t proved they were good.  And watching a place like Morocco with murderers still killing in the name of Allah just sets this in concrete for most of us.

Islam is EVIL.  They will stop at nothing to bring down Western Civilization, Whites, Christians, Europeans, Liberals and Conservatives.

It is HIGH time the United States, the people in this USA understand the threat and stop treating these people like “individuals”.

They don’t want to treat gun owners like individuals.  Or Christians.  Or white men with money.  No, they lump everyone into some “scary group” and demonize them.

Well, I say that we need to lump all the Muslims into one group and Demonize them.  Remove them, BAN their religion completely, kick them out of the United States, or incarcerate them if they open their mouths once about white people, killing, jihad, Allah or anything else.

Wait!  What?  Too much?  You think this is too much?

Then, let’s be sane people.  Leave our guns alone, leave them in the hands of the gun owners.  Stop beating up on our own Americans and start looking a lot more closely at WHO YOU’RE letting into this country through these “open borders” and who is living in those so-called “Sanctuary Cities”.  Those are the place to go to find the terrorists.

 

The Seeds of Destruction

For many years, I’ve gone on and on about “The AI is coming for us”.  Well, today a Facebook friend posted this little piece.

Please read it, and understand that this is no longer a “might happen” thing.  It’s not if, but when.  And when is right around the corner.

Those of you know me well, know I am a bit of a science fiction geek. I have been a fan of Arthur C Clarke, Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein since I was old enough get my own library card (yes my millennial friends, once upon a time we had to go to a LIBRARY to get books). I have also been a life long die hard “Trekkie” since I was about 8. As such, I have always founds the concept of Artificial Intelligence to be fascinating and a bit scary at the same time.

Recently Google announced a “leap in Artificial Intelligence” evolution. Last year its program, Alpha Zero, taught itself chess. It was given the rules of chess, nothing more, within 4 hours it had mastered the game to the point that it demolished the leading chess program, Stockfish in a 100 game match. Winning 25 games out of 50 as white (first move) and 3 as black (second move), the rest of the games were draws. It didn’t lose once. I remember at the time thinking this was impressive, but didn’t really consider the ramifications of this leap until recently.

In an interview I heard late last night, with a human chess master, the master (who’s name escapes me at the moment) said “Alpha Zero” plays chess in a way that is completely unlike anyone he has ever seen. It thinks in an nearly alien way. It places little to no value on any of it’s own pieces and sacrifices them in ways I have never seen.”

This would have been merely a curiosity, were it not for the announcement this week from Microsoft, that it is partnering with the DoD in developing AI national defense.

These two, seemingly unrelated stories, when taken together are truly terrifying.
Is this the beginning of “Skynet”? The program that unleashed Armageddon in the Terminator movies? While that sounds perhaps silly at first glance, is it really?

Elon Musk has, been warning of the dangers of unleashing AI for years. The issue is once created, how can it be controlled? Researchers have been running simulations for a few years now, attempting to keep AI “in the box”. In other words keeping it from internet access. This they believe is necessary, because once AI gets into the internet it will literally have ALL the knowledge in the world. Which will then create something called ASI or Artificial Super Intelligence. A situation in which the creation is capable of out-thinking its creators. At that point it becomes unstoppable and literally an alien life form of its own. With the advent of smart technology it will be able to hide itself in EVERY single electronic device in the world with a computer chip.

We are on the precipice of opening Pandora’s Digital Box. In literally every simulation humans have failed to keep AI in the box. The program is able to manipulate its human handlers into “opening the box” and giving internet access, by promising to solve some of mankind’s most intractable problems; disease, poverty, hunger etc…solving these issues without the restraint of human compassion or reverence of individual rights or life. In simulations AI dismisses these restraints in order to achieve its goal. Because its prime directive (a star trek term) is always to achieve its goal, whatever that goal may be. It does not require much of a leap of imagination to see where this leads ultimately. Food production can’t meet global needs? Solution? Reduce the population.

A simple algorithm can deduce, the elderly and the infirm are contributing less than they are producing. If populations must be reduced to meet the food and water needs of the world, it’s a simple decision to eliminate the net “users” for the sake of the net “producers”.

To use another Star Trek core belief, “the needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few…or the one”. In the context of the movies and TV series that seems a noble thought. In light of these recent developments it is absolutely terrifying.

One can argue that used for good purposes this a wonderful advance. But is this technology something that we want in the hands of totalitarian regimes like China, and Russia or the Mullahs of Iran? Once this genie is out of the bottle it is absolutely irreversible.

The only option to stop ASI once it is out of the box, is a global EMP (electromagnetic pulse) which fries EVERY electronic device in the world. Sending us back to the pre-industrial age. No electricity, no digital anything.

I fear we are watching the seeds of the destruction of the world as we know it being planted in front of our eyes. Meanwhile our media is largely ignoring what is very likely the most important story of human history.

I guess we will find out where this road leads sooner or later. I suspect it will be sooner, the advent of the 5G network, scheduled to be in full operation within 7 years will speed this process up considerably.

Consider this; when Alpha Zero was in development, Google said it would likely be 10-20 years before AI began actually learning.

Once activated it took 4 HOURS for it to begin exhibiting human like intuition.
Something to ponder.

In Just 4 Hours, Google’s AI Mastered All The Chess Knowledge in History

Information Bans

Why are there so many things getting banned by Facebook, Twitter, the news media, and even radio stations lately?

What is behind this nonsense?

According to a CNBC news article, this is a list of things:

Objectionable Content

Objectional (sic) content includes some of the topics in other categories and more. Here’s what’s banned:

  • Hate speech.
  • Graphic violence that “glorifies violence or celebrates the suffering or humiliation of others.” It does allow graphic violence in cases that “raise awareness about issues,” however, and in such cases Facebook places a warning about graphic content and requires the viewer to be over 18 years of age or older.
  • Adult nudity and sexual activity (it allows nudity if it’s to raise awareness, for educational or medical reasons, however.) Pictures of art (paintings and sculptures that depict nudity) are allowed.
  • Content that’s deemed “cruel and insensitive” including “content that targets victims of serious physical or emotional harm.”

Now, that of course is not the whole list.  Recently, they banned an image of Santa Claus kneeling in front of Jesus… for, according to the post, “violence”.  Of course, I have no way of confirming that they actually banned the image, but I do not put it past Facebook to ban images of Jesus, or Christian icons.

What gets this author is the song, “Baby, it’s Cold Outside” being banned by MULTIPLE Radio stations across the country because it’s plain “evil”.  Or something.  I suppose it’s a bit suggestive in it’s content.  So, why aren’t all these blithering idiots who do “Rap Music” being banned for calling women names, demeaning women, talking about doing drugs, and outright blatant sexual content?  What happened to the Federal Communications Commission anyway?

It is a FACT that is an Amateur Radio Operator gets on the air and uses a four letter word, he/she will end up getting a fine, if not having to shut down their station completely.

When it comes down to “banning music”, this crap happened in the 1950s, over Rock, with the banning of Elvis’ Pelvis on TV, the banning of books in the 1900s-2000.  It’s happening again.

This NPR article seems to explain it away, with one utterance by station DJ/Host, Glenn Anderson, with one, simple set of words:

The world we live in is extra sensitive now, and people get easily offended, but in a world where #MeToo has finally given women the voice they deserve, the song has no place.  

In other words, because a few Lefty Loudmouth Lame-assed Liberal “Ladies” complained with #MeToo, then entire Western Civilization has gone batshit crazy and now anything, and everything offensive to someone needs to be removed from view or hearing of everyone else?  Is this the case?

Facebook also looks at these things:

 Integrity and Authenticity

In this section, Facebook discusses the type of content that falls outside of its other categories. This includes:

  • Spam (“misleading or inaccurate information to collect likes, followers, or shares.”)
  • Misrepresentation – You need to be a real, verifiable identity on Facebook.
  • “False news” – Facebook says it tries to reduce “false news” but that satire is allowed. ” For these reasons, we don’t remove false news from Facebook but instead, significantly reduce its distribution by showing it lower in the News Feed.”

Facebook includes “memorialization” in this category. This means you can memorialize an account of someone who passed away.

Apparently, if you post spam, they can ban it.  Funny, how we get so many foreign people wanting to be friends with us these days, most of whom have large boobs, lots of cleavage to show, no friends, and fifty groups; perhaps they are just friendly women?  Who knows.  Mostly, though, they are spammers.  They get away with it because I see dozens of them on friends’ pages.

And who is the person(s) who determine precisely what “false news” is anyway?  How do they KNOW it’s false?  Who verified it?  Snopes?  Wikipedia?  Some Libtard Factchecker?  All of the above?  Irrelevant to me.  If I am not smart enough to figure out if something is “real” or “fake” then I shouldn’t be reading the news in the first place.

In the 1960s, as a child I sat and watched the evening news with Walter Cronkite.  Old Walter was “the Most Trusted Man in America” then.  But, old Walter also was an avowed Liberal, though he didn’t come across as one.  He was as unbised as a newsman could be in the days, reading the news that was coming off the Wire, to the rest of us, and letting US make the decision as to whether or not it was real or fake.

In those days, new Agencies also had a reputation to uphold, and Journalism actually “existed”, where people went out, gathered the facts in a story and then TOLD THE STORY BASED ON FACTS.  Today, this is not the case.

MSNBC, CBS, NBC, CNN to name a few, will tell lies to get their agenda across, and then call you names if you disagree with them.

What this has come down to is simple.

People have become “extra sensitive”, and “get easily offended” and need to be “protected from the bad people”; “Bad people” they have imagined in their brainwashed, perhaps drug-induced haze, and micro-culture of their own echo-chambers.

It is time, well past time, for Regular Americans to stop allowing this bullshit to occur.  Get on the phone and call those radio stations and demand they stop Censoring America.  Call Facebook, Twitter and the other organizations and demand they stop Censoring things you might like to read.

And if something offends you, SCROLL.  Change the channel.  Change the Radio Station.  Put down the paper, magazine or print article that is upsetting you.  Let’s go back to a time when we controlled out OWN destinies, and did not leave it to media outlets, and loud mouths to determine for us what we got to read, see or experience.

Let’s start ignoring the “squeaky wheels” and stop giving them the grease.  Unless it’s to more easily push them over a cliff to dispose of the bodies….

If you’re one of those “Squeaky Wheels” and I’ve not yet offended you, PLEASE, write me at AmericanPatriotRealityCheck AT Gmail.com so I can assist you in blowing your brains out the top of you heads…

 

 

 

“Reasonable Restraint” – is a misnomer

I do not know the author of this piece.  But, most of it appears to have been written by one person, with others contributing.  PLEASE READ THIS, understand it, and pass it on.  It is extremely important in the debate about “gun control”.

There will be no compromise on the Second Amendment.  Here’s the article:

“Regarding the governments ability to impose “Reasonable Restraint” which has now become the mantra of our government. Supporters of the Amendment claim they have a constitutional or Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Opponents counter thateven if that were the case, the federal government was granted the general power to place restraints on the right. Both of these assertions are based on a misconception concerning the intent of the document known as the Bill of Rights.

When the Bill of Rights was submitted to the individual States for ratification, it was prefaced with a preamble. As stated in the preamble, the purpose of the Amendments was to prevent the federal government from “misconstruing or abusing its powers.” To accomplish this, “further declaratory and restrictive clauses” were being recommended. The Amendments, when adopted, did not create any so-called constitutional rights or grant the federal government any power over individual rights; they placed additional restraints and qualifications on the powers of the federal government concerning the rights enumerated in the Amendments.

If the Second Amendment is read through the preamble, we find it was incorporated into the Bill of Rights as a “declaratory and restrictive clause” to prevent the federal government from “misconstruing or abusing its power” to infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms.
Another way to understand the original intent of the Second Amendment is re-write it through the preamble:

“Because a well-regulated Militia is necessary to the security of a free State, the federal government is expressly denied the power to infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear Arms.”

The preamble and original intent of the Amendments has been suppressed by the institutions of government because it would expose their usurpation of power and perversion of Amendments contained in the Bill of Rights.

By advancing the myth that the Amendments grant the American people their individual rights, the federal government has been able to convert enumerated restraints and qualifications on its power into legislative, executive, judicial and administrative power over individual rights. The federal government claims it was granted the constitutional authority to determine the extent of the individual rights enumerated in the Amendments and/or impose “reasonable restraints” on those rights. This assertion is absurd. The federal government does not have the constitutional authority to ignore, circumvent, modify, negate or remove constitutional restraints placed on its power by the Amendments or convert them into a power over the individual right enumerated in the particular restraint.

A denial of power or an enumerated restraint on the exercise of power is not subject to interpretation or modification by the entity the restraint is being imposed upon. The restraints imposed by the Amendments, which were adopted 4 years after the Constitution was ratified, override the legislative, executive, judicial or administrative powers of the federal government. If this were not the case, then the restraints would be meaningless because the federal government could simply circumvent, modify or remove them. Why would the States have requested and adopted enumerated restraints on federal power, subsequent to their ratification of the Constitution, if the federal government possessed the authority to nullify them?

When the federal government infringes on one of the rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights it is not violating anyone’s constitutional rights; it is violating the additional restraint or qualification placed on its power by the particular Amendment where the right is enumerated. The distinction between rights and restraints is critical. [The right is not given by the Federal Government. Our rights are given by God and are inalienable. Therefore, they can’t be limited or taken away.]

As stated in the Declaration of Independence, the American people have unalienable rights that come from a higher source than government or a written document. By acknowledging that people have natural rights, which are bestowed by a creator, the Founders laid the foundation for the principle that government does not have the lawful authority to take away or infringe on those rights. This principle was incorporated into the preamble and structure of the Amendments to secure individual rights from government encroachment; that is why they were designed and imposed as restraints on the exercise of power.

If the individual rights of the people had been created by the Constitution or an amendment to the document, then they would cease to be unalienable because the right would depend on the existence of a document. If the document or a provision of the document disappeared, so would the right. The belief that individual rights were created by a written document has opened the door for the federal government to claim the power to define the extent of any right enumerated in an Amendment. This has transformed constitutional restraints placed on federal power into subjective determinations of individual rights by the institutions of government. By failing to understand the difference between amendments that create rights and amendments that impose restraints on government, the American people are watching their individual rights vanish as they are reduced to the status of privileges bestowed by government because the constitutional restraints placed on federal power are being replaced by government decree.

Opponents of the Second Amendment always try to diminish the right enumerated in the Amendment by asserting that rights are not absolute. This is just another straw man argument because the Amendment is about imposing a restraint of the powers of the federal government concerning a right: not granting a right or defining the extent of a right. In addition, a review of the Second Amendment shows that the restraint imposed by the Amendment does not contain any exceptions.”

NRA Statement

Fairfax, Va.— Chris W. Cox, executive director of the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, released the following statement on Tuesday after retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens advocated for a repeal of the Second Amendment:

“The 97-year-old retired justice has long held the opinion that American citizens do not have the individual right to own a firearm for self-protection. Emboldened by the mainstream media, the gun-control lobby is no longer distancing themselves from the radical idea of repealing the Second Amendment and banning all firearms. The protestors in last week’s march told us with their words and placards that the current debate is not about fake terms like “commonsense” gun regulation. It’s about banning all guns. The men and women of the National Rifle Association, along with the majority of the American people and the  Supreme Court, believe in the Second Amendment right to self-protection and we will unapologetically continue to fight to protect this fundamental freedom.”

Disinformation about 2A

They keep saying “We’re not coming for your guns”, “No one is talking about the second amendment”, “We just want GUN SAFETY”, along with numerous other “statements” to distract you and provide disinformation.

Horseshit. They lie.

There has not been a BIGGER lie told in awhile… except maybe “You can keep your doctor” and “I did not have sexual relations with that woman”….Until now.

Taking your guns is the A #1 GOAL of Marxists in America.  They are disguised as “Progressives”, “Maxists”, “Children” and Communists.  Most of these Children are the sons and daughters of “Marxist loving” parents who would do ANYTHING to protect children, except prevent abortion.  But, boy, let a gun be around and they shit themselves.

Below is a New York Slimes article calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment.

The world is about to change for some people. Make sure you’re on the correct side of History my friends. Lock and Load, Prepare and stand ready.

14 April 2018, All Capitol Cities, and DC – Pro-2A Rally.  Show up.  Or be prepared to fight if we don’t make enough noise.  Pass the word or Pass the ammo.

US Pro-Gun Rallies in all Capitols

It’s time.

April 14th, 2018

All State Capitols and DC.

https://thenccpa.com/upcoming-events/

Be there.  Widest dissemination requested.

 

The second amendment isn’t just about guns. It’s about supporting the natural rights of self-defense, resistance to oppression and the civic duty to act in defense of our families and our communities. From the enactment of the Bill of Rights through most of the 20th Century, the Second Amendment seems to have been understood to guarantee to every law-abiding responsible adult the right to possess arms.

The purpose of these events are to express the numerous and protean ways in which the concept of self-protection and expression related to the Constitution in the minds of its authors. For self-defense is indeed at the core of the Second Amendment and an element in the Founders’ political thought generally.

At the same time it is important to realize that the Founding Fathers’ view of self protection was not only more favorable but also more inclusive than the concept as disfavored by many modern thinkers. To the Founders and their intellectual progenitors, being prepared for self-defense was a moral imperative as well as a pragmatic necessity; moreover, its pragmatic value lay less in repelling usurpation than in deterring it before it occurred.

Modern thinkers feel the need to strip away our natural born right to self-protection by limiting the available weapons that are at our disposal. They blame mental illness without documentation. They blame everything except the sole responsible party, the person involved in the action.

With the support of thousands of American Patriots across this great country, we will assemble at every state capitol at 1pm CDT on Saturday April 14, 2018 to show our support for our 2nd Amendment rights and to support our Constitution as a whole. Please help support us to defend and educate about our founding documents and honor our Forefathers who sacrificed and dedicated so much for us to have the freedoms we do today!

America’s Fall

Today, we older generational people, the “Boomers” as some refer to us in an unkindly manner, are the last of the children of “The Greatest Generation”.  We came after the end of World War II.

Our parents and Grand Parents saw the fall of the 3rd Reich, the Japanese Empire and the rise of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic – the USSR.  My father fought in the Korean War, a marine, who survive a massive battle to take and retake some unknown-today hill against Chinese Communists helping the North Koreans.

My wife’s father stood terrible duty in the Aleutians during World War II.  My own family has had military members through out our time in the United States, ranging from the American Revolution, to the War of 1812, Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and later events like police incidents in Central America, the Cold War, Afghanistan and Iraq in more recent times.

My family has a storied history in war.  Not because we’re war mongers.  Quite the contrary.  We’re all against war.  But, almost every military man and woman knows and understands something that many today don’t grasp.

We understand the requirement to have a strong military to prevent incursion of Communism into our own environs.  We hold Military Service in a very high regard and do it of our own, free will almost always each of us joining a service before being drafted for some particular fight for Freedom.

As such, we all understood, before stepping into the boots and hefting a rifle the sacrifice we were making, in some cases, the ultimate sacrifice, giving one’s life for the American Way of Life.

We also understand/understood history.  Those stories before us of both war, and how they came into being.  How the Revolutionary War began, why it began, who precipitated it and why America came into being.

Today, we have people unaccustomed to war, and many who have been to war recently who understand that sometimes a war must be fought to keep everyone else safe.

Young people today seem to care little about the past, and are more concerned with protesting to give away their God Given, inalienable, natural rights.

Some see the Second Amendment (and indeed, sometimes the entire Constitution) as a worn, tired, out-of-date piece of parchment not worth the ink with which it was written.  Calls for changing the Constitution abound.  Cries to rescind the Second Amendment are being yelled loudly in the Press and from the Left side of the Political Aisle.

I’m here, not unlike Paul Revere himself, to herald a call to Arms and Warn the Americans that “The Progressives are Coming”.  They are already among us, screaming for things like “Common Sense Gun Laws” and “Gun reform”.

Truthfully, guns don’t require “reforming” as they aren’t evil, didn’t do anything wrong and are simply tools of the trade to the military man, police officer and honest, duty-bound Citizen of the United States to defend himself, his family and his community against transgressions against themselves by either criminals or, God Forbid, the Government itself.

We stand on the very precipice of the fall of the United States today.

The aforementioned Boomers and Millennials are locked in a mortal battle at this point in time. Not a bloody battle (no yet anyway) over Gun Control, the Second Amendment and the “tired, worn out Constitution”.

In less than a generation, roughly twenty-five more years, that youngest generation marching today against guns, against the NRA, against the “evil AR15” and against you my friends, will be the next generation in control of Congress, the White House and the Supreme Court.

We, the Boomers, the Cold Warriors, the Afghan and Iraqi Veterans are all that is left to stand up to those children who want to give away the very heart of America to Socialism, and ultimately, Communism.

The Communists warned us, over and over, they would take us over without firing a shot.  But, shots have been fired, against innocents in schools, and cities all over America using the “Evil Black Assault AR15” – a simple, semi-automatic rifle that is no different from a bolt action deer rifle, other than it has a smaller caliber.

Those children of today know not what they give away, know not how many men and women died protecting those very rights they intend to hand over to a future government, to remove those rights from their very own hands.

One generation, mark my words, if we do not turn this trend around now, if we do not reign in the wild accusations from Children, taught to them by Progressive and Marxist teachers in a public school, paid by OUR tax monies, given to those same Progressives and Marxists the Communist’s prophecy will have come true.

We are doomed to die in less than three hundred years.

Today, we wander down the path the Romans wandered in their last days.  Innocence lost, barbarians at the door and living in our own land, as well as our own apathy and ignorance have wrought what we shall soon reap.

This author implores you all, one last time, step up, be heard, fight the loss of this country and the loss of the Greatest Document written by man.  The US Constitution.

I personally swore and oath to protect it, six times in my career.  That Oath never expires and it doesn’t lessen as the years go by, it only calls in a stronger voice to me.

But, I’m one man.  My children learned their lessons well, and will continue in my stead.

Will yours?

I call upon every would-be, wannabe and existing Militia in the United States to stand up, be heard.  Do not back down.  Do not let the Constitution die when we die.

40 Reasons To Ban Guns

40 Reasons To Ban GunsArguments Made By Liberal Lawmakers
1. Banning guns works, which is why New York , DC , Detroit & Chicago cops need guns.

2. Washington DC ‘s low murder rate of 69 per 100,000 is due to strict gun control, and Indianapolis ‘ high murder rate of 9 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun control.

3. Statistics showing high murder rates justify gun control but statistics showing increasing murder rates after gun control are “just statistics.”

4. The Brady Bill and the Assault Weapons Ban, both of which went into effect in 1994 are responsible for the decrease in violent crime rates, which have been declining since 1991.

5. We must get rid of guns because a deranged lunatic may go on a shooting spree at any time and anyone who would own a gun out of fear of such a lunatic is paranoid.

6. The more helpless you are the safer you are from criminals.

7. An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.

8. A woman raped and strangled is morally superior to a woman with a smoking gun and a dead rapist at her feet.

9. When confronted by violent criminals, you should “put up no defense – give them what they want, or run” (Handgun Control Inc. Chairman Pete Shields, Guns Don’t Die – People Do, 1981, p. 125).

10. The New England Journal of Medicine is filled with expert advice about guns; just like Guns & Ammo has some excellent treatises on heart surgery.

11. One should consult an automotive engineer for safer seat belts, a civil engineer for a better bridge, a surgeon for internal medicine, a computer programmer for hard drive problems, and Sarah Brady for firearms expertise.

12. The 2nd Amendment, ratified in 1787, refers to the National Guard, which was created 130 years later, in 1917.

13. The National Guard, federally funded, with bases on federal land, using federally-owned weapons, vehicles, buildings and uniforms, punishing trespassers under federal law, is a “state” militia.

14. These phrases: “right of the people peaceably to assemble,” “right of the people to be secure in their homes,” “enumerations herein of certain rights shall not be construed to disparage others retained by the people,” and “The powers not delegated herein are reserved to the states respectively, and to the people” all refer to individuals, but “the right of the people to keep and bear arms” refers to the state.

15. “The Constitution is strong and will never change.” But we should ban and seize all guns thereby violating the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Amendments to that Constitution.

16. Rifles and handguns aren’t necessary to national defense! Of course, the army has hundreds of thousands of them.

17. Private citizens shouldn’t have handguns, because they aren’t “military weapons”, but private citizens shouldn’t have “assault rifles”, because they are military weapons.

18. In spite of waiting periods, background checks, fingerprinting, government forms, etc., guns today are too readily available, which is responsible for recent school shootings. In the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s, anyone could buy guns at hardware stores, army surplus stores, gas stations, variety stores, Sears mail order, no waiting, no background check, no fingerprints, no government forms and there were no school shootings.

19. The NRA’s attempt to run a “don’t touch” campaign about kids handling guns is propaganda, but the anti-gun lobby’s attempt to run a “don’t touch” campaign is responsible social activity.

20. Guns are so complex that special training is necessary to use them properly, and so simple to use that they make murder easy.

21. A handgun, with up to 4 controls, is far too complex for the typical adult to learn to use, as opposed to an automobile that only has 20.

22. Women are just as intelligent and capable as men but a woman with a gun is “an accident waiting to happen” and gun makers’ advertisements aimed at women are “preying on their fears.”

23. Ordinary people in the presence of guns turn into slaughtering butchers but revert to normal when the weapon is removed.

24. Guns cause violence, which is why there are so many mass killings at gun shows.

25. A majority of the population supports gun control, just like a majority of the population supported owning slaves.

26. Any self-loading small arm can legitimately be considered to be a “weapon of mass destruction” or an “assault weapon.”

27. Most people can’t be trusted, so we should have laws against guns, which most people will abide by because they can be trusted.

28. The right of Internet pornographers to exist cannot be questioned because it is constitutionally protected by the Bill of Rights, but the use of handguns for self defense is not really protected by the Bill of Rights.

29. Free speech entitles one to own newspapers, transmitters, computers, and typewriters, but self- defense only justifies bare hands.

30. The ACLU is good because it uncompromisingly defends certain parts of the Constitution, and the NRA is bad, because it defends other parts of the Constitution.

31. Charlton Heston, a movie actor as president of the NRA is a cheap lunatic who should be ignored, but Michael Douglas, a movie actor as a representative of Handgun Control, Inc. is an ambassador for peace who is entitled to an audience at the UN arms control summit.

32. Police operate with backup within groups, which is why they need larger capacity pistol magazines than do “civilians” who must face criminals alone and therefore need less ammunition.

33. We should ban “Saturday Night Specials” and other inexpensive guns because it’s not fair that poor people have access to guns too.

34. Police officers have some special Jedi-like mastery over handguns that private citizens can never hope to obtain.

35. Private citizens don’t need a gun for self- protection because the police are there to protect them even though the Supreme Court says the police are not responsible for their protection.

36. Citizens don’t need to carry a gun for personal protection but police chiefs, who are desk-bound administrators who work in a building filled with cops, need a gun.

37. “Assault weapons” have no purpose other than to kill large numbers of people. The police need assault weapons. You do not.

38. When Microsoft pressures its distributors to give Microsoft preferential promotion, that’s bad; but when the Federal government pressures cities to buy guns only from Smith & Wesson, that’s good.

39. Trigger locks do not interfere with the ability to use a gun for defensive purposes, which is why you see police officers with one on their duty weapon.

40. Handgun Control, Inc., says they want to “keep guns out of the wrong hands.” Guess what? You have the wrong hands.

 

Safety Versus Security

 

“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” -B. Franklin

Benjamin Franklin talked about the choice being between essential liberty and temporary safety. The truth is that safety cannot be bought. It might be borrowed for a time, but there is no such thing as permanent safety.

On 14 March 2018, thousands of young people, in the High School age range (and many much younger than that) walked out of their schools “in protest”.

This protest was staged by Progressives.  Let me be clear, a “Progressive” is nothing more than a Marxist, and Anti-Capitalist, a wanna-be Che Guevera Fan club member, and an arm of the Communist Party.  Every Liberal in the United States is a Closet Progressive, and out-of-the-closet Progressives are Communists in the making.

No, I don’t misunderstand the difference, I KNOW the differences in the definitions of the various types of political parties, but I also know that over time these groups have melded into one for a main objective; to utterly destroy the very foundation of the United States of America.

Those children of 14 March were Sock Puppets.  Many thought they were memorializing the children and teacher killed last month in Florida.  Outwardly, many were told to go protest, and teachers, school boards and school officials – MOST of whom belong to the NEA – allowed this to happen.  School officials who are not in the Teacher’s Unions (notoriously Left Leaning by the way…. seeing the pattern yet?) stood tacitly by for the most part and ignored the ramifications.

Instead of memorializing the dead children, one ADULT with a bullhorn angrily read the names of the children and teach killed, with a very emotional “MURDERED!” she shouted.

Others chanted “Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho! The NRA has GOT TO GO!”

Some young (Muslim) women – I know this because they were dressed in hijabs, stated they came here looking for “peace and tranquility” and America “is a murdering country”.  Came here for tranquility?  From where?  Why?  Stay in your own country and fight there.

Franklin argued for Liberty, not safety.  He, like so many others of the men of his time pledged his “fortunes” to the cause of making America Free.

History tells us that the Constitution originally did not contain the Bill of Rights.  The First Ten Amendments, which were required before the Colonies would eventually ratify the Constitution.  While those tend Amendments are certainly like all the others, able to be added or removed based on the rules IN the Constitution, those ten Amendments are part and parcel of what enables us, the People of this country, to remain in charge.

Not the government.  Not a set of Judges.  Not even Congress.  Not the President.  We, the People.  The laws in the Constitution govern the GOVERNMENT, not us.

The Second Amendment was not written as a secondary by product of wild imaginings.  It was written because the King of England had tried numerous times to disarm the British Subjects in the Colonies.  In fact, all of the Colonists were “Subjects” to the King.  Now, today, we, their descendants are CITIZENS.

We remain Citizens by Right of Being Born here.  By Right of being able to defend ourselves against those who would disarm us, and reign over us with tyranny.  The Colonists didn’t want a standing Army to be used against them.

Today, we have a “standing Army”; the police, who have been militarized.  The US Military, sworn to protect the Constitution, the National Guard, the Coast Guard, and other, lesser groups who are armed in every Department of the US Government (As “Agents”).

The Second Amendment is NOT about Hunting.  It’s NOT about “self-defense”.  It’s about PREVENTING a large standing army from taking our Freedoms away.

The Second Amendment is there to PREVENT Progressives from taking our guns.

I’m going to say something here, that might sound inappropriate to many of you, and I don’t condone violence, and am, having served in the military for over two decades, very against war.  But, it is high past time to stand up and fight back.  Not with violence.  With phone calls.  With letters.  With Email.  With speeches.  With words. With the Pen for the Pen is mightier than the sword.

It is time to let everyone know, without a doubt, we will NOT give up one more piece of Liberty for Safety.  Giving up our guns gives anyone the ability to come in and rules us all.

In my sixty years on this planet, I would never have believed that we could have gone so far down the path of destruction at the hands of an internal enemy of Progressive Marxism.  All, EVERYTHING I have fought for is being usurped before my very eyes by wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Progressives are the ENEMY.  They are not “Progressive”. They are REGRESSIVE.  They are the Children of Hitler.  They are the “arm band” people.  They are the ones who tell you “It’s for the Children” and then put you in prison later, for who knows what purposes or reasons.

Because, you are a dissenter.

I say DISSENT!

ARISE! and Stand up to these people.

While you still can, be heard.  When they won’t hear you any more and they start coming for your guns, then will be the time to shoot back.

This isn’t a game any more.  This is not a charade.  The Left WANTS YOUR GUNS.

They MUST DISARM YOU to control you.  And Control you, they will.

Unintended Consequences

The law of unintended consequences illuminates the perverse unanticipated effects of legislation and regulation.

In the social sciences, unintended consequences are outcomes that are not the ones foreseen and intended by a purposeful action. The term was popularized in the twentieth century by American sociologist Robert K. Merton.

UnintendedConsequences is what happens when you attempt to remove the Rights of Free people, because a few loud mouths with zero understanding of history yell louder than the rest of us.

Stand up and be heard.  Shout down the Democrats, Liberals and ignorance of the “Student Protesters” to Congress.

Today, America is Dying

Ladies and Gentlemen;
 
I am going to strongly suggest some points of action here, and I will leave them up to you to do, or not do as you choose.
 
Our Freedoms are under assault this very moment in Washington, DC by Children who have been allowed/forced to walk out of High School and scream about gun control, the NRA and “Assault Weapons”.
 
If you think this is something that is going to blow over, you’re sorely mistaken.
 
This mess has been organized by some group of Marxist/Leftists with money, time and “community organizing skills” – I do not know who, everyone guesses, and I’m sure someone is right, but I have no personal knowledge.
 
What I DO know and Understand is that we are looking at the final days of America unfolding in front of us right this very moment.
 
Thousands of Children have been turned into a Mob. They are being controlled by their emotions. They will not stop, if they are spurred onward by the Leftist/Marxist crowd that is guiding them now.
 
I strongly suggest – we get organized now.
 
Locate others in your OWN AREA and meet personally, vet one another, and prepared because the time is coming when you will not be sitting at your computers any longer.
 
Organize NOW. Train, NOW.
 
Do not delay, do not wait, prepare for the worst and pray for American.
 
God watch over us all, and may God Bless the Constitution and the United States of America.

Confiscation? Now…

Apparently it has started.

AAFES, the Army and Air Force Exchange Service has apparently begun removing “military grade” weapons accessories from their shelves.  Not sure in what this is response to yet.
