The Second Amendment
by Rick Donaldson
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
A simple, yet profound sentence, one which has meant and still means the most to the United States and Freedom from Tyranny throughout two hundred plus years as a Country.
The Second Amendment was ratified on December 17, 1791, along with the other nine amendments that make up the Bill of Rights. The Second Amendment protects that entire Constitution, and all the other Rights.
The phrasing seems to upset those who hate guns because they can not fathom things in any terms other than the “here and now”, or understand times of old, equating everything they read with current technology. But, “guns” are not what that Amendment was written about anyway. Read on.
There have been debates for at least two decades on the meaning of the word militia. The phrase has been bandied about by Right, Left, Center, Libertarians, Progressives, Democrats, Republicans and many others. All of them have tried to convince others what the word “militia” means, or that the phrasing precludes or includes things it does or doesn’t.
People have made comments about this or that “clause” and how the words work together, or don’t work. Or work differently than we are led to believe.
What ALL have failed to do is understand the time period, the history and the men and women of that time period.
In the 18th Century, England and other countries, while many had standing armies, also all had militias. The United States’ Colonists had “militias”. They did not have a “standing Army”. In fact, there was NO ARMY when the Revolutionary War began. There were militia groups and some more organized groups ended up becoming the Army we know today. The US Army, as we know it today didn’t come into being until 1796. Five YEARS after the Constitution was ratified. There was no “National Guard”. There were only militias. Militias are explained later.
In those times, and today, codified into US Code, a militia is defined as all able-bodied males between the ages of 16 and 45 years of age. And no, we’re not forgetting the ladies either, (US Code states 17 – 45):
10 U.S.C. § 311 – U.S. Code – Unannotated Title 10. Armed Forces § 311. Militia: composition and classes
(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32 , under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
(b) The classes of the militia are–
(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.
In 1776, there was no standing Army. The states didn’t want a standing Army. George Washington was against a Standing Army as were many other of the Founding Fathers.
Even so, the MILITIA consisted of well-regulated young and older men.
Each town or jurisdiction, usually counties, had their own militia, made up of able-bodied men and boys who showed up on a regular schedule to the “Town Square” or some other handy location to practice shooting and some limited tactics. These groups were everywhere and they answered to some person, in general a male, who was their “local commander”. He might be a blacksmith, or a tailor, or even the mayor of the town.
The phrase “well-regulated” simply meant “Trained”. It didn’t mean “governed by the government”.
So the phrasing of the Second Amendment is actually quite simple, not complex, and it’s not hard to understand. No “interpretation” is required.
The PEOPLE made up the militia, so, “A well trained militia is necessary and being made up of the PEOPLE, their right to keep and bear arms WILL NEVER be infringed.”
The militia was then, and is now, the people. The people are the militia, and the government is constrained from touching rights to keep and bear arms. Period.
The National Guard did not come into being officially until 1933. So, it was NOT the “National Guard” of which they spoke. It was NOT a standing Army, which they did not want.
Fire arms were muskets. But other weapons were not. Swords are weapons, and while there were no AR15s, no technological requirements for or against any sorts of weapons are found in the Amendment.
Instead we find the word ARMS. Not FIREARMS. Not Swords. Not guns. Not cannons. Just the word “Arms”.
Arms are ANY and ALL weapons that are known to mankind able to be picked up and used as offensive or defensive weapons. These are not limited to handguns, or rifles.
The Second Amendment doesn’t mention sports rifles, doesn’t mention hand guns. Thus arms are not LIMITED by this definition. Even if you want it to be. It’s simply not.
Weapons of war, weapons of any sort, including pitch forks, shovels, hammers, knives, swords, ballistas, catapults, bows and arrows, slingshots, firearms and “you name it” are included in this definition.
Infringed – means “changed, removed, taken away, watered down” and you SHALL NOT INFRINGE. Shall and Shall not are special words. Shall is an IMPERATIVE word. Meaning MUST. When placed with NOT, it changes the imperative to the opposite. If you SHALL do something, you MUST do it. It you SHALL NOT do something, you must NEVER do it.
Thus, another way to say this is, “A well trained militia is necessary since militias are made up of the PEOPLE, their right to keep and bear arms WILL NEVER be infringed.”
This is so simple, even a literate child in the 1700s could understand it. Perhaps that is because they were literate and those who wish to limit or ban, or infringe up on the right to keep and bear arms work themselves through many gyrations to do so. Or perhaps they are simply illiterate?
Today, everyone wants to change the meaning, adding in complications to the phrasing, instead of boiling it down completely. English majors, writers and professors have all weighed into the Second Amendment, and nearly all of them trained in Liberal Arts colleges will attempt to change the meaning of the Second Amendment to meet their personal opinions.
It just doesn’t work this way.
Simply put, the Right of the People of the United States SHALL NOT have their Right to Keep and Bear Arms infringed. The US Government, and the STATES may NOT touch that right. Ever.
Read it now, knowing what has been explained, and see for yourself just how simple this phrase is, and know that it’s meaning was to convey to us 243 years later, the exact, same meaning it conveyed in 1776 through 2019.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Men and women of the United States, Citizens, and those who have stated their intent to become citizens make up the militia, organized, unorganized and in some cases, the “disorganized militias” and you have an absolute right to keep and bear any Arm you wish, be it a rifle, a handgun, a musket or a cannon.
This writer will proudly bear both his rifles and swords, in addition to his Pen, of which is sometimes been stated to be “mightier than the sword”.
Over on facebook, a good friend of mine, who is also a Canadian and a staunch “Supporter of the American Constitution” as well as a “Right Winger” started a discussion on his page. Over the course of several days there were dozens of comments, many of them were Left Wing trolls attacking him.
At one point I was defending various things, and the following is what I wrote there. When I was finished, the only comment I received was from some guy saying “You need a girl friend”. I explained that “I have a wife and she wouldn’t like that”. His response was “Ask, you might be surprised.”
Is that seriously how Liberals think? It’s ok? I mean if they can’t attack you with name calling, they try to drag you to their lowest level.
Today, the Right “owns” the White House, the House and Senate. The Left “owns” the disaster of Barack Obama, and the near destruction of the American Economy. They can’t come to grips with that, but can continue to call Trump a “racist”, “rapist” and all the other things. Now that the “memo” is out, how many heads will roll? Probably none.
Anyway, the following is a copy of the comments I made through the discussion. It’s historical now.
Please allow me to educate some of the people here. This is what ” Progressivism” is about. They HATE that America was founded on it’s guiding principles. They HATE the Founding Fathers. They HATE the Constitution. They will use it only to gain benefit while usurping power from the People of the United States. They will use hate, name calling, mis-characterization, projection, dismissal, and denigration to gain their goal, which is the destruction of American Principles and the burning of the US Constitution. Progressives are the ENEMY of Americans, and America. They are NOT our friends. They walk hand-in-hand with Communists, Marxists and Socialists and hide among these people calling themselves “Social Democrats”. This is FACT. Not some of the BS they bandy about to convince others of their “good” to society.
The Progressives were reformers in the late 19th and early 20th century who believed that in order to address modern problems, America needed to abandon the old ideas of the Founding in favor of a new expansive conception of the role of government. Progressives paved the way for modern liberalism and politics, and their core ideas are still the mainstay of today’s liberalism.
Some Progressives were prominent journalists such as Herbert Croly (co-founder of The New Republic), some were distinguished professors such as John Dewey and Woodrow Wilson (president of Princeton before he was President of the U.S.), and many were political leaders such as Theodore Roosevelt and Robert La Follette. Progressives could be found in both political parties: Wilson was a Democrat, Roosevelt was a Republican.
The Progressives were united in their contempt for what they called the “individualism” of the Founding. Instead of a government that protects natural rights through limited, decentralized powers, they envisioned an expansive government, a “living” and evolving Constitution, and the rule of “experts” in nationally centralized administrative agencies.
Whereas the Founders believed the government had a well-defined and limited role to play in the lives of citizens—essentially leaving people alone to lead their lives—the Progressives favored a much more active role for the government in overseeing civil society, regulating the economy, and redistributing wealth.
These two fundamentally different understandings of the role of government grow out of two different understandings of freedom. For the Progressives, freedom is not secured when government protects natural rights and otherwise leaves citizens to rule themselves. True freedom, by this view, demands an active government that provides equal means to self-fulfillment for all. It is not enough to create the conditions that allow people to pursue their own happiness—equal opportunity—since some citizens start with more advantages than others. Government must set out to level the playing field and determine outcomes.
To ensure that all citizens possess all they need to attain happiness, government must create an environment in which all possess the same advantages, despite the fact that this requires government to interfere with the very natural rights the Founders sought to secure. Government must redistribute wealth and grant benefits in order to ensure that everyone has equal means to pursue happiness, and must provide economic and social resources to develop the social character of citizens.
This is why LIBERALS are also the enemy today: Liberalism can be understood in two very different ways. Liberalism, or what some call “classical liberalism,” is a political philosophy based on individual liberty and limited government. Over the last century, however, liberalism has come to take on a different meaning. The contemporary understanding of liberalism is based not on individual liberty, but on the use of government to grant benefits and advantages in order to give everyone the ability to achieve a certain standard of living and reduce inequalities. Therefore, modern liberalism encourages an extensive network of interest groups that receive benefits from government and organize in order to preserve those benefits.
Modern liberalism grows out of the Progressive rejection of American constitutionalism and an embrace of a new conception of freedom, anchored in big government. There are however certain significant differences between Progressivism and modern liberalism.
Whereas modern liberalism exalts freedom of self-expression, especially sexual liberation, most Progressives embraced traditional morals. Liberals are also obsessed with equality of outcomes in ways that the Progressives were not. Today, liberalism has lost the faith in progress that characterized Progressivism, mostly because of a loss of confidence in the inevitability of progress and the creeping effects of having embraced relativism from the start of the Progressive movement.
The administrative state is the conglomeration of federal administrative agencies—whether executive agencies, executive departments, or independent regulatory commissions—that have become a “fourth branch” of government. Power has in effect been transferred from the representative, constitutional institutions—Congress, the President, and the courts—to administrative agencies and bureaucrats.

Power has in effect been transferred from the representative, constitutional institutions—Congress, the President, and the courts—to administrative agencies and bureaucrats.
Although our civics textbooks still describe a government where Congress makes laws, the President executes laws, and courts adjudicate disputes, this is not the way our government actually works. Today, bureaucrats make law, execute law, and adjudicate. Although the laws made by agencies are called rules, they carry the force of law.
The administrative state is inconsistent with the U.S. Constitution. Article I, section 1 of the Constitution states that all legislative powers shall be vested in Congress, yet Congress has transferred its powers to these agencies.
Furthermore, the Constitution clearly requires the separation of powers, yet powers are combined in administrative agencies. Finally, many agency personnel are un-elected and unaccountable, despite the republican principles on which the Constitution is based.
There are lots of people out there who think Barack Obama was a great president. OK, fine. Whatever. Answer me this though…
We have money for the following:
Syrian and Middle Eastern unvetted ‘refugees’
Vacations for the President
We do NOT have money for:
Military Pay Raises
Military equipment that is needed just to SUSTAIN the force
Veterans Medical Care
The Marine Corps is the most relied on Military Force outside of US Special Operations Command. They are the most overused forces of the most overused Military in the WORLD.
So, please explain something to me:
How do we have funds for illegals and potentional Terrorists, but not to upgrade the Marine Corps from Vietnam Era helicopters to the SAME MODERN helicopters THE REST OF THE MILITARY IS USING?
How do we have funds for endless Obamas’ vacations, but we cant find enough $$$$$$ for parts to keep more than 1/3 of Marine Corps Fighter Jets DEPLOYED TO WARZONES flying?????
We have money for Social Justice Crap, But we Have VETERANS BEING LEFT TO DIE BY THE VA, and NO ONE at the VA being held accountable?????

It is happening. Reports of suspensions, daily, weekly and permanent are coming out of Twitland.
The vast majority of those reporting them? Conservatives. Usually they make a remark about Islam and are given a suspension, and/or ordered to “remove the offending tweets”.
Many of these people are moving to Gab a relative new comer to Social Media. Launched on 15 August 2016, the brainchild of Andrew Torba (@a), CEO of Gab.

Stalin’s quotes certainly say something about Twitter, even though it didn’t exist by the time he died, but it is impossible for Twitter as a company to not grasp these words.

The arrogance of the these Left wing kooks never ceases to amaze and astound me.
At the bottom of this editorial is a link. I urge you to read it. But. pease, do not feed the trolls. Read it, understand what this fool is saying, and then comment here or on the American Patriot Reality Check Facebook Page. (https://www.facebook.com/AmericanPatriotRealityCheck/)
Here’s a guy who out and out says exactly what we’ve been saying all along. That the “State” will “come take out guns” through the use of “militarized police”.
He goes on to state how he coolly handles those of us who say “You can have my guns when you pry them from my cold, dead fingers”. He says, “Oh, they will, and you’ll be dead in a pool of your own blood”.
Where his arrogance ends however is that we aren’t in this to play dead, or get dead, or to be the first to fire the “next shot heard ’round the world”.
We are in this for our Rights. Yes, that “Second Amendment” Right, and his blithering idiot “First Amendment” right. And all of the other of the first ten in the Bill of Rights.
The government, and it’s minions have NO rights to come take the guns “For the common good”. This is not a “Commonwealth”. America is neither a Monarchy where we are all “subjects” to a king, nor a Socialist State (Although so many of them like to THINK we are).
America is a Representative Constitutional Republic. We are not ruled by theocrats, autocrats, kings, emperors or the people we send to Washington, to the Capitols or the County Seats. We rule OURSELVES through those we place in office.
If, at this point the Left, Politicians and political appointees wish to test this theory, then Thomas Jefferson, one of America’s first “Bad Asses” said it first and I’ll repeat it for emphasis…. and I quote, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
Please, JIM KARGER, please understand that you too will be one of the masses lying there in a pool of your own blood, shot dead by the other side because you chose the wrong side to stand. And truthfully, you may fall victim to your beloved “State” because the second that most-hated “Second Amendment” goes away, you have nothing left to protect your “First Amendment” from the “State” masters.
Be the American Public so misguided, so ill-informed and so uneducated that they believe only that which is fed them by the media, the so-called Fourth Estate? The Media, the Press, the people who stood toe-to-toe with corrupt politicians in the past now stand behind them and take whatever they are fed, and then in turn feed that to a populous of sheep?
Another thing Mr. Jefferson said was, “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
Right he was. Until the future came upon men and women mindlessly caught up in the Battle of the Stars, Television and all sorts of other distraction.
I leave you with these thoughts my friends… be you a wise man, or poor, rich or idiot, none can do better for their country than to stand by it in tough times. That you stand by your country does NOT mean you follow all the laws, corrupt as they may be, or orders from on high, placed upon you as if you were a subject to a King. None of us are by birth slaves. No one in this country living today is a slave and none of shall be slaves again. But if, like Mr. Karger, one chooses such a path then Sam Adams said it best.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
― Samuel Adams
Well, I have a question. Actually, several questions.
Why are they on the watch list?
If they are on the watch list, why?
If they are on the watch list, why are they working for the DHS?
If they are on the watch list, do they have clearances? If so, why?
If they are terrorists, connected to terrorism, are Muslim then why haven’t they 1) been fired, 2) had clearances revoked, 3) Named, 4) deported?
If they are Americans, what form of due process was used to place them on a no-fly list?
If they are actually adjudicated then why can they buy guns?
You see, it takes a few questions to get to the meat of the matter but apparently no one is asking questions, are they? Especially not this President.

At least 72 employees at the Department of Homeland Security are listed on the U.S. terrorist watch list, according to a Democratic lawmaker.
Rep. Stephen Lynch (D., Mass.) disclosed that a congressional investigation recently found that at least 72 people working at DHS also “were on the terrorist watch list.”
“Back in August, we did an investigation—the inspector general did—of the Department of Homeland Security, and they had 72 individuals that were on the terrorist watch list that were actually working at the Department of Homeland Security,” Lynch told Boston Public Radio.
“The [former DHS] director had to resign because of that,” he said.
DHS continues to fail inspections aimed at determining the efficiency of its internal safety mechanisms, as well as its efforts to protect the nation.
Lynch referred to a recent report that found the Transportation Security Administration, which is overseen by DHS, failed to stop 95 percent of those who attempted to bring restricted items past airport security.
“We had staffers go into eight different airports to test the department of homeland security screening process at major airports. They had a 95 percent failure rate,” Lynch said. “We had folks—this was a testing exercise, so we had folks going in there with guns on their ankles, and other weapons on their persons, and there was a 95 percent failure rate.”
Lynch said he has “very low confidence” in DHS based on its many failures over the years. For this reason, he voted in favor of recent legislation that will tighten the vetting process for any Syrian refugees applying for asylum in the United States.
“I have very low confidence based on empirical data that we’ve got on the Department of Homeland Security. I think we desperately need another set of eyeballs looking at the vetting process,” he said. “That’s vetting that’s being done at major airports where we have a stationary person coming through a facility, and we’re failing 95 percent of the time.”
“I have even lower confidence that they can conduct the vetting process in places like Jordan, or Belize or on the Syrian border, or in Cairo, or Beirut in any better fashion, especially given the huge volume of applicants we’ve had seeking refugee status,” Lynch said.
The resolution was submitted to a vote by the resolutions committee after language was agreed upon.
Six people spoke for the resolution and no one spoke against it. The resolution passed by a vote of 7 to 4.
As passed, the wording of the resolution is as follows:
If the federal government continues to disregard the Constitution and the sovereignty of the State of Texas, the State of Texas and its people should reassert its prior status as an independent nation.
Those members of the committee voting in favor of the resolution include: Bonnie Lugo, SD13; Terri DuBose, SD19; Karl Voigtsberger, SD8; John W. Beckmeyer, SD28; Naomi Narvaiz, SD21; Henry Childs, SD19; and Marvin Clede, SD17.
Opposed to the resolution were: Committee Chairman Mark Ramsey, SD7; Davita Stike, SD14; Sam Dalton, SD20; and David Halvorson, SD12.
The resolution will now be submitted on Saturday to the full body (62 members) of the SREC.
The committeewoman who presented the resolution, Tanya Robertson, SD11, said Texas independence should be put before the voters because Texans are dissatisfied with Washington D.C. representatives and excessive federal government spending.
Robertson told Breitbart Texas, “We made it through the Resolution Committee and will take it up on the floor tomorrow at the regular SREC meeting. Thanks to the seven members of the SREC Resolutions Committee who voted to move the Texas Independence initiative to the floor for a fair debate. They listened to the conservative grassroots of Texas today and it is very much appreciated!”
The SREC committeewoman who represents parts of Harris, Galveston, and Brazoria counties added, “The committee veered from the agenda today and accepted testimony from the Texans who were observing today. All of the testimony was passionately in-favor of allowing Texans to voice their opinion on this issue. Our prayer is that the body of the State Republican Executive Committee will adhere to the will of the conservative people of Texas.”
Texas Nationalist Movement President Daniel Miller told Breitbart Texas, “We’re obviously excited and hopeful. This was not the first step or the last step. It was another step. We know that Texans want a vote on independence and we’ll continue to work to ensure that Texans get it.” “It’s interesting to note that our proposition received more committee votes than nearly every hot button issue. People want to be heard on this issue.”
As reported by Breitbart Texas, Texas Republican State Party Chairman Tom Mechler has predicted that he did not believe there was support within the State Republican Executive Committee to approve the resolution.
Dwayne Stovall, who ran against Senator
during the last election and is currently running against Representative
, told Breitbart Texas, “Listening to committee members discuss a resolution on independence was a great example of how little understanding most of us have about the federal system of government on which the U.S. Constitution is based.” Stovall supports the right of Texans to vote on the issue of Texas independence.If the resolution passes the SREC and is submitted to primary voters, it would be a non-binding resolution.

‘Anti-Muslim Rhetoric’ to be Prosecuted – US Attorney-General Loretta Lynch
U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Thursday defended Muslims after the San Bernardino, California, shooting on Wednesday that killed 14 people and wounded 17 others, adding that federal officials would take action in case of anti muslim rhetoric and activity.
“When we see the potential for someone to lift, lifting that mantle of anti muslim rhetoric or as we saw after 9/11 violence directed at individuals who may not even be Muslims but may be perceived to be Muslims and they will suffer just as well, just as much, and when we see that we will take action,” -US Attorney-General Loretta Lynch.
Many community members said they were concerned about a backlash against the Muslim community in view of the rise of Islamic State and some opposition among politicians and the public in the United States over U.S. plans to accept Syrian war refugees.
The couple suspected of killing 14 people at a holiday party in California amassed thousands of rounds of ammunition and a dozen pipe bombs, authorities said on Thursday as they sought clues to the pair’s motives and whether they had links to Islamist militants.
Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, 27, were killed in a shootout with police five hours after Wednesday’s massacre at the Inland Regional Center social services agency in the city of San Bernardino, about 60 miles (100 km) east of Los Angeles.
Farook, a U.S. citizen born in Illinois, was the son of Pakistani immigrants, according to Hussam Ayloush, who heads the Los Angeles area chapter of the Muslim advocacy group Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
Malik, who had a 6-month-old daughter with Farook, was a Pakistani native living in Saudi Arabia when they married, Ayloush said.
The director of the Islamic Center of Riverside, a mosque Farook attended regularly for two years, described him as a devout Muslim who made the pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia a few years ago and celebrated his wedding reception at the mosque.
Loretta Lynch, a Muslim Lover and an Islamic bitch.
Fuck you Loretta Lynch.
Fuck the Muslims.
That friends is what is commonly called “Freedom of Speech”.
I DARE anyone to try to take it from me. I will kill you dead before you do. And while I might die in the process, I will die a Free Man, not a Muslim convert or a slave in a prison of this fucking dictator.
The shit is about to get Real…..
You’ve been warned time and time again.
Americans on both sides of this particular strategic fence.
Americans with guns have been warned the Left is going to go all out to ban guns before Obama leaves office.
Americans on the Left, the gun-banners have been warned NOT to go for broke.
Now it is coming down to the wire, Obama is on his way out (because he IS leaving office whether he wants to or not, and regardless of Leftist conspiracy theories about G W Bush trying to remain in office, it’s NOT going to happen with Obama).
Another shooting happened yesterday, implemented by a Muslim extremist. Which is to say “A Muslim, or man of Islam”. Interesting how they keep saying it was “Domestic Terrorism” because he’s an American Citizen.
Interesting how they keep going after the guns, isn’t it?
Interesting how they want to go after cops and disarm them as well, isn’t it?
Isn’t it interesting how the Second Amendment is now “stupid” to some of the media darlings like Whorealdo Rivera….
Friends; Americans, Arm yourselves. ISIS had their hands in the middle of this attack, and I wouldn’t be surprised now if Obama himself didn’t have his hands in it somehow.
It is, however coming. Obama is planning an executive order to control who can get a gun. And we ALL know it will be applied impartially and fairly don’t we? Right…. and chickenshit won’t make you sick if you eat it.
I personally believe that government is a requirement for civilization. I DO NOT believe a BIG Government is necessary. I DO believe that the Constitution is the highest law of our country and the President is there to support and defend that Constitution and the current idiot in the White House is neither defending it, nor supporting it and is in fact negating it, usurping power for himself and for the government and is culpable in the deaths of those people yesterday.
Obama is a Traitor to America and it’s high time the Congress took him out of the position he is in before he causes even more danger for this country.
His “Change” has become undeniably evil, Marxist and he has placed this country in danger of an internal civil war over guns, race, illegal immigration and has enabled foreign powers to undercut us in military strength, has over-reached spending and government to a point never before seen in the history of the world.
The danger to this country comes at a time when Russia is threatening the US on a daily basis as well as NATO in general. Islam is NOT what it is touted to be, and Obama is as responsible for this as any other Muslim.
He is no longer President in my view. He is a Liar, a thief, Traitor and a Muslim — all on a grand scale.
He must go. If Congress does not remove him forthwith, there will be a severe danger to this country, the infrastructure and we will become vulnerable to war from the outside. China, North Korea, Cuba, Russia and the entire Muslim population of the planet awaits the weakening of this country to the point that will allow them all to attack us with impunity.
At some point there will be an “incident” which will be precipitated by Islam’s fanatics, which in turn will put thousands in danger of even going outside. Martial law may be declared at that point making it difficult to travel or move around across state lines.
When that happens…. expect the absolute worst. On the bright side of all of this will be police, firemen, military and civilian leaders who will do all they can to put a stop to it. There are too many people still in the government who will NOT stand for allowing it to happen. Someone in there will do something, and they will all be purged.
Watch and see.
Rather than tackle the root of the issue causing the overwhelming majority of terrorist attacks in America — radical Islam — Obama continues to be a good little prog and push forward the agenda to shred our Second Amendment rights to bits.
In light of the San Bernardino mass shooting — which by the way, was composed of a freshly married Muslim couple — is looking to create yet another executive order to make it more difficult to buy firearms at a gun show.
Because background checks have done such a stellar job of stopping crazy people from doing bad things so far, right?
From LA Times:
White House officials are seeking a way to use executive authority to close the so-called gun show loophole that allows thousands of people to buy guns each year without a background check, but complicated legal issues have slowed the process.
Almost three years ago, President Obama asked Congress to change the law to require background checks for weapons sold at gun shows, but a bill to do so died in the Senate – dashing administration hopes for legislative action to address the loophole.
Efforts to use Obama’s executive powers to address the issue took on added urgency in October, when a shooter at a community college in Oregon killed nine people, then shot himself.
Requiring background checks for weapons sold at gun shows might not have had any effect on Wednesday’s shooting in San Bernardino, in which 14 people were killed. So far, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms has determined that two of the weapons used in the assault were legally purchased at a gun shop in Corona.
But White House officials and their allies continue to see expanding the background check system as the most promising avenue to reduce at least some of the deaths caused by guns.
“We all have a part to play,” Obama said, including “legislators” in the list of those who must work to make it more difficult for violent people to get access to weapons.
“Right now, it’s just too easy.”
Notice how this said background checks likely wouldn’t have prevented the shooting — or any of the others — yet the utter lack of success with said method of “gun control” isn’t going to deter them from implementing more.
They’re essentially trying the same solution to the problem, despite knowing this particular solution will fail, but because it helps push their agenda, they’ll do it anyway.
That, my friends, is the definition of insanity.
I’ve said it before, but what the heck, I’ll say it again:
We don’t need gun control. We need terrorist control.
And we just so happen to have millions of certified terrorist control experts at our disposal if only we’d send them out and let them do their jobs.
Unfortunately for us, that goes against the liberal playbook so it won’t likely happen with this president in office.
Edit: Just reported: One of the San Bernardino shooters is Farooq Saeed per police radio chatter.
I have been warning in this forum and others for Americans to ARM themselves.
We now have a mass casualty event in California, the number one anti-gun, gun-free zone in the United States.
Details are very sketchy, but we know this:
At 11:00 AM California time, at least three men, possibly dressed in black clothing and carrying “long guns” and “tactical stuff” walked into a building in San Bernardino, CA and began shooting people. The even lasted approximately three minutes and these apparently well-trained terrorists vacated the premises, jumped into a dark SUV of some sort.
The faces of the men were covered by masks.
Fourteen people are dead, dozens more are injured.
Phones were shut down for some reason. (This was just reported as I am listening to the news, information coming from witnesses).
A week ago, or just less I warned people to carry weapons. Apparently Americans aren’t listening. Why are you not listening?
This event was a planned event. It was either:
B) Al Qaeda
C) Obama planned or Hillary Clinton Planned to bring out the big guns against Guns.
These were military trained people. This was a barbaric act. These men are most LIKELY ISIS.
They walked in and murdered a lot of people and left without being seen by authorities. They planned this well, and they got away with it.
If this is an Obama-Thing, it is an evil thing. The men, I promise you were not 40-something-White-Christian, Right-Wing, Gun-Owning Males. I PROMISE you they were not.
These were hired men who did this mission to call out the Congress to attack guns in America, or they were ISIS terrorists.
My money is on the latter, and my hopes and prayers is that these were NOT people working for the current political establishment.
If, however, tomorrow suddenly Congress is meeting to address this issue and putting out various bills to ban guns, then you can bet your ASS Obama and the Presidency is involved. (He did say he was planning to take care of the “gun problem” in America before he left office…).
If that’s the case, my friends, America is in very, very deep shit and we’re about to go to war internally. There will be a Civil War over disarming American Citizens. Hillary wants it. Obama wants it. Various others want it. Some in Congress, and every Liberal and Progressive out there wants guns banned.
Americans… ARM YOURSELVES. Liberals, either you’re with the Constitution or against it. Progressives… don’t go there. Military personnel, watch your orders. Cops, watch your orders. Constitutional Means Constitutional. Oath Keepers, keep them straight.
Christmas is coming and so is ISIS.
Now, for those who do NOT believe this country was based on Christianity…. look around you, look at Islam and what they want to do to this country. Look at terrorism as a whole, not breaking it down or comparing it to the very, very few “White Christians” who’ve done insane things. Look at the MILLIONS killed by Islam.
Look at yourself and know… Civilization is going to fall if we Americans do NOT stop this.
The end of civilisation is nigh, according to ‘doomsayers’. Picture: Thinkstock. Source: News Limited
DOOMSAYERS, prepare your bunkers. The ‘Doomsday Clock’ is ticking.
The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, a group founded by the creators of the atomic bomb, say the world is now three minutes from a catastrophic midnight and the closest it has been in 30 years.
The clock moved forward two minutes, citing global warming and the proliferation of nuclear weaponry as the world’s greatest threats.
Atomic testing in the 1950s saw the Doomsday Clock move closer to midnight than it has ever been. Picture shows testing in the Australian outback. Source: News Corp Australia
“This is about Doomsday; this is about the end of civilisation as we know it,” Bulletin executive director Kennette Benedict said.
“The probability of global catastrophe is very high, and the actions needed to reduce the risks of disaster must be taken very soon.”
The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists was created in 1945 and the clock first appeared two years later on the Bulletin’s magazine cover. The minute hand has moved as far from midnight as 17 minutes (1991) but was once just two minutes away (1953).

The last time the clock was at three minutes to midnight was in 1983 during the Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union.
Richard Somerville, a member of the 20-member board of scientists at the Bulletin, said the burning of fossil fuels will lead to a “major climatic disruption globally”.
‘The urgency has nothing to do with politics or ideology,” Dr Somerville said.
“It arises from the laws of physics and biology and chemistry”.

The immigration situation is already messy. Now an armed Texas militia is planning to make a move for the U.S.-Mexico border, according to news reports.
Members said the goal is not to interfere with law enforcement but to help secure the border and slow the surge of undocumented immigrants illegally entering the country.
The group, called Operation Secure Our Border-Laredo, was identified to the San Antonio Express-News as “Patriots,” “Oathkeepers” and “Three Percenters,” a reference to the 3 percent of colonists who took up arms against England during the Revolutionary War. Organizers are using social media and a 24-hour hotline to recruit and mobilize armed volunteers to send to Laredo, Tex., within the coming weeks.
It’s uncertain how many people belong to the group or how many might actually show up.
“There’s nothing malicious, there’s no malicious intent — every person is vetted. We’re just here to serve freedom, liberty and national sovereignty.” Davis said once the group has enough manpower, it will do its duty in a “legal and lawful manner.”
It’s quite a different tactic than the one Davis announced via a YouTube video in which he allegedly said: “You see an illegal. You point your gun dead at him, right between his eyes, and you say, ‘Get back across the border or you will be shot,’” the McAllen Monitor reported last week. Davis told the Express-News he removed the video after it was taken out of context “by a newspaper that supports amnesty.”
Thousands of migrants, including large numbers of children, have been crossing into the U.S. on a regular basis since the fall, fleeing violence in Central America.
The situation President Obama called a humanitarian crisis has moved many lawmakers, law enforcement and local residents to come up with their own solutions.
Last week, hundreds of California protesters took matters into their own hands, forming a human blockade and shutting down access to a Border Patrol station near Murrieta as agents were trying to transport three busloads of immigrant children and families. The protests transpired after Murrieta Mayor Alan Long urged locals to fight immigration transfers. The buses were forced to reroute to San Diego.
On Monday, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said Los Angeles Police will no longer hold immigrants for possible deportation without either a court order or an arrest warrant.
“The federal government is in charge of enforcing federal immigration laws — not us at the local level,” he said. “That responsibility can’t be forced onto local law enforcement officials who already have stretched budgets.”
The situation has some Southern lawmakers — from both parties — nervous.
Cuellar was referring to the wave of criticism that came over the presidential administration after George W. Bush was photographed peering at the Hurricane Katrina wreckage from Air Force One instead of landing the plane and meeting people on the ground. Years later, Bush told NBC’s Matt Lauer it was a “huge mistake.”
And Gov. Rick Perry (R-Tex.) told ABC News’s “This Week” the federal government is “just absolutely failing.”
“We either have an incredibly inept administration, or they’re in on this somehow or another,” he said. “I mean, I hate to be conspiratorial, but I mean, how do you move that many people from Central America across Mexico and then into the United States without there being a fairly coordinated effort?”
A day later, the White House took a tougher stand, saying it expects to deport most unaccompanied minors who enter the country illegally through the Southern border.
In any case, the Texas militia is ready to do its part.
Members said the FBI in Laredo and local law enforcement are aware of the group’s plan, though. Brenda Medina, spokesman for the sheriff’s office in Webb County, Tex., told the Times sheriff’s officials have no plans to meet with them. And U.S. Customs and Border Protection told the Express-News it does not “endorse or support any private group or organization from taking matters into their own hands as it could have disastrous personal and public safety consequences.”
Among those who have joined the effort is Rick Light, who leads a militia in Rocksprings, Tex. He clarified that the militia’s plan isn’t a “‘go in guns blazing’ operation.”
“There’s a big interest throughout the United States to come and assist,” Light told the Times. “This is what happens when our politicians ignore the letter of the law.”
US senators remove requirement for disclosure over drone strike victims
• Bill had called for disclosure of ‘noncombatant civilians’ killed
• Director of national intelligence gives assurances to Senate
At the behest of the director of national intelligence, US senators have removed a provision from a major intelligence bill that would require the president to publicly disclose information about drone strikes and their victims.
The bill authorizing intelligence operations in fiscal 2014 passed out of the Senate intelligence committee in November, and it originally required the president to issue an annual public report clarifying the total number of “combatants” and “noncombatant civilians” killed or injured by drone strikes in the previous year. It did not require the White House to disclose the total number of strikes worldwide.
But the Guardian has confirmed that Senate leaders have removed the language as they prepare to bring the bill to the floor for a vote, after the director of national intelligence, James Clapper, assured them in a recent letter that the Obama administration was looking for its own ways to disclose more about its highly controversial drone strikes.
“The executive branch is currently exploring ways in which it can provide the American people more information about the United States’ use of force outside areas of active hostilities,” Clapper wrote to the leaders of the Senate committee, Democrat Dianne Feinstein of California and Republican Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, on 18 April.
“To be meaningful to the public, any report including the information described above would require context and be drafted carefully so as to protect against the disclosure of intelligence sources and methods or other classified information. … We are confident we can find a reporting structure that provides the American people additional information to inform their understanding of important government operations to protect our nation, while preserving the ability to continue those operations,” Clapper continued.
Another provision, which would require alternative intelligence analysis, as well as commensurate congressional notification should an intelligence agency consider legal action against a US citizen, has been moved to a classified annex of the bill.
Lawmakers were said to remove the provision in hopes of passing the full bill in the coming weeks.
The removal of the drone transparency requirement is the latest in a pattern by legislators to preserve the status quo surrounding the strikes.
In January, the Senate obstructed an effort by the Obama administration that would have removed the CIA from drone operations and given responsibility for them to the Defense Department, which conducts parallel and occasionally complementary drone strikes.
Feinstein, the chairwoman of the Senate intelligence committee, has recently been locked in a different sort of declassification battle: an effort to compel the Obama administration to declassify aspects of a major report into the CIA’s post-9/11 torture of terrorism detainees, completed by her committee.

But Feinstein has long been a defender of the CIA’s drone strikes. During a February 2013 confirmation hearing for CIA Director John Brennan, Feinstein stated that the CIA’s targeting procedures kills only “single digits” of civilians annually, an assertion that cannot be independently confirmed because of the official secrecy surrounding the strikes.
The sharing of even basic information about drone strikes has run into a wall of official secrecy. Several independent groups attempt to track the numbers of people killed in the strikes, but no official US confirmation has been possible. Word of the strikes usually arises from news accounts in their places of occurrence, such as Yemen or Pakistan.
Independent observers, including the United Nations special rapporteur on counterterrorism, have repeatedly called on Washington to increase transparency around the lethal operations. An April paper by Larry Lewis of the CNA Corporation, who has close ties with the US military, urged the administration to conduct and appropriately disclose assessments of civilian casualties from drone strikes, to help “ensure that official US statements reflect operational realities, helping to guard the credibility and reputation of the US”.
Thus far those efforts have largely floundered. In May 2013, Obama announced that he wanted to restrict but not eliminate drone strikes, whose use he defended as a necessary component of counterterrorism. Obama confirmed that civilians have died from drone strikes, an effect that he said “will haunt us as long as we live”, but he did not disclose how many cases of errant missile or mistaken targeting strikes have occurred.
In public testimony, leaders of the intelligence agencies have not rejected the transparency provisions. During a February House hearing, Brennan called a proposal from congressman Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, to disclose the annual numbers of fighters and civilians killed by drones “certainly a worthwhile recommendation”.
Schiff and a North Carolina Republican, Walter Jones, introduced a bill this month to compel the drone casualty totals and combatant breakdowns, which Schiff termed a “modest, but important, measure of transparency and oversight regarding the use of drones”.
The previous February, Senator Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican and member of the armed services committee, was quoted tallying the deaths caused by drone strikes over the past decade at 4,700 people. Graham did not disclose either the basis for his estimate or a breakdown of how many civilians the total includes.
US drones strikes are declining worldwide, according to statistics gathered and analyzed by the Council on Foreign Relations. In 2013, there were approximately 55 strikes in Yemen, Pakistan and Somalia, killing as many as 271 people, down from the 92 strikes that killed up to 532 people in 2012. While drone strikes in Pakistan are sharply down in 2014, a recent offensive aimed at Yemen’s al-Qaida affiliate and including US drone strikes left about 55 people dead last week.
Human rights activists reacted with disappointment to the removal of the transparency requirement.
“How many people have to die for Congress to take even a small step toward transparency? It’s stunning that after all these years we still don’t know how many people the Obama administration has killed with drones,” said Zeke Johnson, the director of Amnesty International’s security and human rights program.
Speaking at a Las Vegas Review-Journal event, Harry Reid was clear: “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists. I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”
As Harry Reid stated last week – “This isn’t over”. It appears now that those of you who went there, those of us who blog about it and support Cliven Bundy, those of us against Government Overreach – well, the fear mongering about all of us being labeled as “terrorists” was not “fear mongering”, it was fact.
You’re all terrorists now.
Harry Reid Labels Supporters of Rancher Cliven Bundy ‘Domestic Terrorists’, Reveals Federal Task Force Being Assembled
Apr. 17, 2014 6:38pm Jason Howerton
Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) claimed on Thursday that armed supporters of rancher Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists” and reckless individuals who put their families in danger.

The rhetoric certainly will do nothing to ease already-high tensions after the Bureau of Land Management prematurely shut down its operation to round up Bundy’s “trespass cattle” on Saturday. The federal agency cited fears of public safety after having run-ins with armed militia members who traveled to Bunkerville, Nev., to support the rancher.
Bundy reportedly owes the federal government roughly $1 million in grazing fees, an amount he accumulated after he “fired” the Bureau of Land Management in 1993 over its decision to turn public land into a protective habitat for the state’s desert tortoise.
There are two court orders that permit BLM to execute a roundup of 500 to 900 of Bundy’s “trespass cattle,” Reid reportedly said.
Reid, who recently said the situation is “not over,” revealed on Thursday there is a federal task force being assembled to handle to the tense situation.

“Clive Bundy does not recognize the United States,” Reid said. “The United States, he says, is a foreign government. He doesn’t pay his taxes. He doesn’t pay his fees. And he doesn’t follow the law. He continues to thumb his nose at authority.”
“It is an issue we cannot let go, just walk away from,” he added.
I just found this folks, just giving the heads up!
Oath Keepers Founder Calling All Members to Bunkerville
Stewart Rhodes: “Oath Keepers, this is your time…”
Oath Keepers founder, Stewart Rhodes, contacted me late Tuesday evening with a message for ALL Oath Keepers. Stewart, along with a contingent of patriots from as far away as New Hampshire, are still standing vigil over the Bundy family ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada. Scores of patriots have already made the trip, including legislators from neighboring western states, but more are needed to relieve those already in place. I have linked to the audio update below.
There are many “decent, small-government proponents from groups like the Tea Party” supporting Bundy, Beck continued, and they should be aware this controversy has drawn “violent, anti-government groups” who constitute “the right’s version of Occupy Wall Street.”
Tucker Carlson (my boss at the Daily Caller) made a related point on Fox News’ Special Report Monday night:
I have a lot of sympathy for the Bundys. I think they were completely mistreated by the federal government. But I still think it’s important to point out that this land does not belong to them and that’s not a minor distinction, it’s the essence of private property.
It’s good to see conservatives are finally learning to eschew the knee-jerk impulse that assumes the enemy of my enemy is always my friend.
A heated land dispute between the federal government and a Nevada cattle rancher subsided over the weekend, but longtime lawmaker and former presidential hopeful Ron Paul says tensions might soon worsen once again.
An armed standoff between Cliven Bundy and the United States Bureau of Land Management ended on Saturday with the federal agency agreeing to release around 400 head of cattle it had seized from the Clark County, Nevada rancher. The bureau said Bundy owed roughly $1 million to the government because for the last two decades he failed to pay a fee for letting his cattle graze on federal land, but the rancher insisted that he owed the agency nothing. Supporters soon took up arms and flocked to the Bunch ranch to stand by in support as feds began to seize nearly 1,000 head of cattle, but over the weekend the BLM aborted their attempt to confiscate the animals in order avoid any violent showdown that might have emerged.
Paul — the former Republican congressman for Texas and a three-time contender for the office of US president — said on Monday that things aren’t necessarily over on the Bundy ranch, even though the feds have for now relinquished their war with the rancher.
“They may come back with a lot more force like they did at Waco with the Davidians,” Paul told Fox News host Neil Cavuto on Friday, adding that he wished for a non-violent resolution.
Only days earlier, the rancher’s wife told the Huffington Post that the mobilization of heavily armed federal agents around her land was all too similar to the 1993 raid on the Branch Davidians’ Waco, Texas compound that ended with the deaths of 87 civilians.
“If you saw the artillery and their presence — the intimidation they are trying to put on us — it could turn into that,” Carol Bundy said she feared.
Speaking to Paul, Cavuto claimed that the potential for violence to erupt at the Bundy ranch on par with what occurred 20 years ago in Texas was on a “very slight trigger,” to which the former congressman responded, “That’s the great fear….especially if the financial crisis gets much worse which I anticipate.”
According to Paul, the entire incident in Clark County could have emerged differently if the government reconsidered the way it claimed land rights. Bundy said that the disputed property had been in his family for nearly 150 years, but the BLM insisted that his animals were trespassing on federal land since he stopped paying the government a grazing fee back in the early 1990s.
“I don’t believe I owe one penny to the United States government,” Bundy told Nevada’s Desert News last week. “I don’t have a contract with the United States government.”
On Friday, Paul told Cavuto that the Bundy family “had virtual ownership of that land because they had been using it,” yet the law is “not clean enough.”
“I think land should be in the states and I think the states should sell it to the people,” he continued, adding that “it’s worked out quite well in big states.”
“You need the government out of it and I think that’s the important point, if you don’t look at that you can expect more of these problems, especially when our economy gets into more trouble,” the former congressman said.
In the meantime, tensions have lessened to a degree in Clark County, where hundreds of seized cattle were handed back to the Bundy family on Saturday, as RT reported earlier. Nevertheless, BLM spokesman Craig Leff told the AP that his agency will work to resolve the matter “administratively and judicially.” Neither the BLM nor the US Department of Justice responded on Monday to requests for comment made by the newswire, but Cliven Bundy himself said he was going to have to inspect his returned cattle to assess their post-confiscation condition.
“It’s going to take a lot to revive the calves that were nearly dead when they were returned to the Bundy Ranch because they had been separated from their mothers during the roundup, and a few most likely won’t make it,” Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R-Las Vegas) told the AP. “It’s time for Nevada to stand up to the federal government and demand the return of the BLM lands to the people of Nevada.”
For his part, Bundy said at a news conference on Monday that “Every sheriff across the United States of America, take away the guns from the United States bureaucrats,” according to the AP.
“Understand it is because of each and every one of you standing here and each and every one of our Americans watching us and protecting us with our firearms why this did not turn into Waco massacre or a Ruby Ridge,” added Fiore.
January 14, 2014
(Fred Brownbill) Be advised that I am in the process of notifying and contacting all legal and constitutionally created militia groups across the United States to mobilize on Washington DC for “Operation American Spring” currently scheduled for May 16th, 2014 and commanded by my friend Colonel Harry Riley US Army Intelligence (Retired) Silver star.
1.8 million people have already responded in kind and are mobilizing and or supporting this effort. We need 10 million.
The Senate and the Congress feel it is in the best interest of this nation to fund illegal immigrants and keep them sustained with free health care, tax breaks, free education in our schools, EBT cards, public housing and the like.
They wish to keep sending tax payer money to foreign countries that hate us. They wish to fund bogus global warming projects in the billions and they refuse to take a pay cut themselves.
Yet they will now deny the wounded veteran his pension COLA increases which he or she earned and depends on while struggling to survive day to day, some are in wheel chairs and without arms and legs. Mr. Politician you are now going to be held accountable.
This vote, to first deny and then block the able bodied and disabled veterans their earned pension COLA raises is unacceptable and an act of treason against the Republic from the Marxists in the government. They must want a war against 25 million veterans. Mr. Communist, Mr. RINO, Mr.. Democrat, Mr. Republican. So be it. You got it.
I called the Marxist Senator (comrade) Harry Reid this morning at 0430 hours and left him a message notifying him that we are now mobilizing and coming to see him soon in Washington. We are not leaving the grounds surrounding our White House or the Congress until Mr. Barry Soetoro, the Muslim imposter, has been removed from office for treason and/or impeached for crimes against the constitution.
Speaker Boehner you may want to start reconsidering his decision not to investigate the inaction by our government in regards to Benghazi too. We are coming to town. Your on the visitation list too.
We will NEVER forget Benghazi.
If you would like to call Senate Leader Comrade Harry Reid and relay your own message his number is 202-224-3542. Do not threaten, we come in peace, but we are not leaving Washington DC until Mr. Barry Soetoro, the illegal immigrant from Kenya, who studied as an Indonesian foreign student in this nation, who flew to Pakistan in 1981 on a foreign passport, has been removed from office.
We have the resources, the money the training and the Constitutional protections to take this country back. And we will. You have pushed us too far Mr. Marxist, now you will see who runs this country. It is we the people.
We live in a Constitutional Republic not a Marxist dictatorship. It’s time.
33 million Egyptians took back their country from the terrorist group, the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization supported by and propped up by Barry Soetoro and the former Secretary of State (born again Communist) Hillary Clinton. This is also treason against the United States for aiding and abetting the enemy.
Impeachment charges have been drawn up in the past and presented to the Congress against Mr. Barry Soetoro with NO ACTION, no response. They are spineless gutless cowards with as much intestinal fortitude as a rotting possum run over by a semi.
I want all Tea Party groups – Militia groups and like minded individuals who have the courage (and understand and know) that God and the constitution are on their side, to start to prepare NOW to mobilize for “Operation American Spring” May 16th 2014. location Washington DC.
Pass this around.

Governor Mead at Capitol for a Day event 2013 (Picture from soswy.state.wy.us)
Just when you think that the EPA can’t get any more out of control, it decides to change the border of a state.
According to an article on Trib.com, the EPA overturned a 1905 Federal Law by expanding the Wind River Indian Reservation:
CHEYENNE — Gov. Matt Mead’s administration is calling on the Environmental Protection Agency to freeze implementation of its recent decision that more than 1 million acres around Riverton remains legally Indian Country.
Wyoming Attorney General Peter Michael wrote Monday to national EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and Regional Administrator Shawn McGrath in Denver asking them to reconsider the agency’s decision.
The EPA ruled last month that a 1905 federal law opening part of the Wind River Indian Reservation to settlement by non-Indians didn’t extinguish the land’s reservation status.
The EPA addressed the reservation boundary issue in its decision last month that granted an application from the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho tribes. The tribes had applied to have the reservation treated as a separate state under the federal Clean Air Act.
Wyoming’s Governor, Matt Mead, says he will fight the decision and is concerned that a Federal Agency assumes it has the power to alter a state’s boundaries:
Mead has pledged to challenge the EPA decision in federal court. The state’s request to the EPA to halt implementation of its decision could help the state if it later asks the court to block the agency’s decision while the appeal plays out.
“My deep concern is about an administrative agency of the federal government altering a state’s boundary and going against over 100 years of history and law,” Mead said. “This should be a concern to all citizens because, if the EPA can unilaterally take land away from a state, where will it stop?”
If you agree with the decision or not, the EPA does not have the power to adjust the borders of a state. The proper places for such a decision are either in the legislative branch or the judicial branch. To me this is an obvious abuse of a power the EPA wrongly assumes it has…

Not that this really matters, because it appears to me that the “4th District Court” of California is a California court. They have no say over Constitutional laws…. so there.
Go here for the full article: http://downtrend.com/71superb/aks-not-protected-by-2nd-amendment-says-ca-court/
On Monday the California 4th District Court Of Appeals ruled that 2nd Amendment does not apply to semi-automatic “AK” type rifles. They opined, “that the right secured by the Second Amendment is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose, but is instead the right to possess and carry weapons typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes such as hunting or self-defense.”
The court based its decision largely on the precedent set in the case of US v. Miller which allowed the banning of sawed-off shotguns on the grounds they had no military or civilian purpose. The court stated, “the ban on AK series rifles does not impinge on rights protected by the Second Amendment because assault weapons are at least as dangerous and unusual as the short-barreled shotgun.”
The case stems from the ultra-confusing Assault Weapons Control Act of 1989, which banned “AR” and “AK” series weapons. Subsequent court rulings said that the state couldn’t ban a type of weapon and must name the forbidden guns specifically by make and model. CA then adopted a list of weapons that were unwelcomed, but the manufactures simply renamed their rifles to get around the list. Finally in 2000 the state banned features like detachable magazines and pistol grips to keep these “assault weapons” illegal.
The defendant, William Zondorak, was busted with an AK-type weapon that appeared on the list of banned guns. Even though his rifle is identical to ones that are sold legally in California, because it was on the list, he’s in deep dog-doo. Any AK or AR receiver that is on the list, even if the gun has been reconfigured to meet CA standards, is still banned.
As if the California Assault Weapons Ban wasn’t stupid enough, this court ruling brings the state’s level of intelligence to an all-time low. First, they are saying that an AK has no lawful purpose such as hunting or self-defense. I don’t remember the part of the 2nd Amendment that restricts firearms ownership to these two usages. In any case an AK variant would be a great varmint gun and adequate for medium-sized game. It would have no problem ventilating someone stupid enough to enter a house without a back-stage pass. It has legitimate purposes.
From Matt Bracken:
Will Obama Stop the Music This November?
The current “shutdown” of 17% of the federal government has primed America for chaos with constant left-wing rhetoric and news media reports couched in apocalyptic terms such as crisis, brink, catastrophe, hostage, arsonist and terrorist. But a catastrophe is useful to a would-be tyrant only as long as it can be blamed on a hated enemy. In 1933 Hitler’s agents burned the Reichstag, not just to sow fear and confusion, but primarily in order to charge his Communist enemies with treason as an excuse to obliterate them. The German “mainstream media” dutifully parroted the Nazi Party line, without investigating the true source of the arson.
A similar pattern of scapegoating has been followed in the United States throughout the term of President Obama. For example, leading Democrats and their shills in the mainstream media have long been salivating at the prospect of a “Tea Party” conservative going on a violent rampage. We saw this in Tucson immediately after the Gabby Giffords shooting, after the Aurora, Colorado, theater attack, and after the recent Washington Navy Yard shooting, when Democrats and their media allies rushed to blame “Tea Party terrorists” in early reports based upon zero evidence. As far as we know, all of these attacks were carried out by deranged individuals following the orders of inner demons, but still the left hopes for a violent response by right-wing “bitter clingers,” so named by President Obama himself during a private fund raiser.
The current “government shutdown” seems to be designed to provoke a violent right-wing reaction. War memorials have been barricaded, even iconic national parks such as those at Valley Forge, Yellowstone, and Mount Rushmore have been closed to the American public that purportedly owns them and undoubtedly funds them. At Yellowstone, senior citizens and foreign tourists have been rousted from paid private hotel rooms by armed federal agents and forcibly bused out of the park. Around the closed Mount Rushmore National Park, cones have been set along public highways to prevent tourists even from stopping to take photographs. Meanwhile, a demonstration on the otherwise “closed” National Mall by illegal aliens demanding amnesty was welcomed by the Obama administration with open arms.
In my opinion, the intention of these selected park closures is not only to inflict psychological pain upon the administration’s perceived “enemies” but also to provoke a violent response by fed-up constitutional conservatives. Thus far, none has risen to the bait; so what will the regime do next? I believe that President Obama may be planning to up the ante by orders of magnitude. How might this happen? The “government shutdown” over the continuing resolution bill has turned on the Democrats’ demand for a “clean” CR, but the real battle will come next week when the national debt limit is reached.
What will happen if President Obama and the Democrats in Congress demand a “clean” debt extension, with no upper limits and no attached conditions, just as they have demanded a “clean CR” to fund current government operations? In the battle over the debt limit extension, either the Republicans will fold and accede to Democrat demands for infinite debt, or they will stand their ground just as they have over the CR. If the Republicans refuse to grant Obama an unlimited debt extension, he may play the final card required to send the United States into such violent turmoil that he will be able to declare a state of emergency and rule by decree under the National Emergencies Act.
How would such horrible conditions be created that President Obama might be able to justify seizing emergency power? By cutting off all federal entitlement payments while claiming that he cannot continue them without a debt extension, secure in the knowledge that the mainstream media will continue to dutifully serve as his propaganda arm, blaming recalcitrant Republicans for all of the negative consequences.
While senior citizens on Social Security and other federal pension plan recipients may not immediately take to the streets, going on violent rampages of rioting, looting and burning, there is a segment of our population that will do exactly that: many of the 50 million Americans who today literally put the food on their tables by using an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. While the states administer their individual EBT programs, most of the money comes from the federal government. Please read my previous essay “When the music stops: how America’s cities may explode in violence” to understand the tremendous risk that will accompany a cutoff—even briefly—of EBT payments.
The fact that thousands of Americans might be injured or killed during the nationwide riots that would follow the looting of supermarkets and delivery trucks will not be a moral impediment to the architects of Operation Fast and Furious. You will recall that this infamous “law enforcement operation” resulted in the murders of hundreds of innocent Mexicans and at least two U.S. federal agents by untracked firearms supplied directly to the Mexican drug cartels by our own federal “law enforcement” agencies. With Operation Fast and Furious (“gun control under the radar” in Obama’s own words), this administration has already crossed the mass-murder-for-political-ends Rubicon—and the mainstream media cooperated in the cover-up.
A lifelong Marxist revolutionary who has caused hundreds to be murdered in an attempt at political gain on gun control is not likely to blanch at the prospect of thousands dying in bloody food riots when the stakes are incalculably higher. If “the music stops” and our cities burn, Obama may grasp the opportunity to declare a state of emergency and seize dictatorial powers from the fire and ashes. Those who resist his rule by emergency decree will be declared to be “Tea Party terrorists” by Democrat leaders and their captive media, and we may finally see why the Department of Homeland Security has been purchasing those billions of hollow-point bullets, UAV drones, and armored vehicles.
If this is their calculation, it is a diabolical plan indeed. But a plan to ride a tiger is not the same as riding the tiger. Permanent rule by emergency decree may not be as simple to accomplish as would-be left-wing tyrants believe. Millions of Americans will not be fooled by the deliberately instigated torching of our cities and will not go quietly into the night of Marxist tyranny.
Many Americans crossed the barriers that were set this weekend by President Barack Obama’s deputies to block public access to the Potomac River from Virginia’s George Washington Memorial Parkway.
In many quiet acts of civil disobedience, Americans removed car barriers and cut police tape, or walked across barriers after parking on grass verges or in adjacent suburbs.
Once past the federal barriers, they were able to enjoy the bike paths, parkland and overlooks — on what singer Woody Guthrie described as “your land” — during the sunny, 80-degree weekend.
Still, the Obama administration blocked easy access to the river for many Americans, except for boat club members or property owners in the 22308 zip code, where riverside homes sell for at least $1.5 million.
The federal barriers were set along 20 miles of the parkway, starting at a government-built parking lot at President George Washington’s Mount Vernon home and continuing northwards to scenic overlooks in McLean, Va.
“I’ll take my chances,” said one man as he unloaded his two children on a grassy verge beside Roosevelt Island, just across from Washington’s Georgetown district.
But their day in the sun was darkened by a locked gate on the narrow bridge from the parkway to the island that celebrates President Teddy Roosevelt, who is widely regarded as the first presidential advocate for national parks.
Motorists who pushed through the barriers were applauded by other Americans.

“They’re right to do that,” a cyclist told The Daily Caller as motorists drove through an opened barrier at a private marina near the Belle Haven Country Club, located just south of Alexandria, Va.
Still, many citizens were stopped by the barriers. Some were blocked because they could not get their boat down the blockaded slips, and others because they were not willing to risk a parking ticket from patrolling police cars.
A family, complete with three kids and a speedboat, found themselves at a scenic overlook 300 feet above the northern end of the river because all the normal slips were blocked. They told TheDC that they would turn back south to search for an unguarded boat ramp.

In several places, Americans gathered together to park in large groups around knocked-aside barriers.
But their respect for the law prevented them from puncturing the water-filled plastic barriers — at least during daylight — that are too heavy to be shoved aside.
GOP governors have also pushed back.
In Wisconsin, Gov. Scott Walker defied the federal edict, and cleared away barriers hindering Americans.
The state “has clarified areas where the federal procedures are over-reaching,” said an email from Cathy Stepp, secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
In contrast, the administration’s progressive officials were unapologetic about their massive resistance to public access of the federal parks and memorials.
“Republicans are willing to vote funding to reopen national parks, museums, memorials, veterans’ payments and the D.C. government. Why is the White House against it?” one reporter asked White House press secretary Jay Carney on Wednesday.
“Because… It’s a gimmick and it is unsustainable and it’s not serious,” he insisted.
If this doesn’t make you think, and bring the number to 100% I don’t know what will.
It is time to change American BACK, it’s time to remove these people from Office. The Executive Branch is corrupt, the Congress is Impotent and against the people. The Supreme Court has been stacked against Freedom.
How are things working in the country today? Almost all voters — 88 percent — say “the government is in charge of the people.” That includes 83 percent of Democrats, 88 percent of independents and 94 percent of Republicans.
Only 8 percent feel “the people are in charge of the government.”
The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 952 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from October 1-2, 2013. The full poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.
Not just barricades, either. My friends, it’s come to this:

I’m rushing this post out because, per Ed’s stellar round-up from earlier this morning, the Honor Flight vets are headed to the Memorial regardless. Members of Congress, among them Michele Bachmann, are already there, as are reporters of all stripes. If you use Twitter, I recommend following the Standard’s John McCormack, National Review’s Betsy Woodruff, and the Examiner’s Charlie Spiering, who took the photo I used for our front-page thumbnail of the feds actually deploying forklifts to set up gates around a memorial that’s open 24 hours a day with little supervision under normal circumstances. As I write this at a few minutes after 10:30 ET, Spiering is tweeting that the vets are scheduled to arrive within the next 15 minutes. Is your government really about to arrest 96-year-olds who fought at Guadalcanal because this bit of sub-moronic shutdown theater is too precious to them to forfeit? Stay tuned. It wouldn’t be the first own-goal they’ve scored because their pettiness overwhelmed their sense of optics.
By the way, the WWII Memorial isn’t the only one with a gate in front of it this morning. When McCormack strolled over to the World War I Memorial, he found this. No joke:

The sign reads, “Because of the federal government shutdown, this National Park Service area is closed, except for First Amendment activities.” So if you want to protest there, you’re good. If you want to quietly remember the dead, get off the damned lawn.

Dan Foster says, “This is President Obama’s Bonus Army.”
The United States federal government is so big that it can shut down and somehow no one really notices. That’s the truth. What difference did you notice yesterday? I am sure there are subtle things that we could pick out but when vital services keep running there isn’t a lot to shut down. Because our government sees everything as vital.
Yesterday we ran an article on The D.C. Clothesline written by Tim Brown. It didn’t garner much attention and it’s primarily my fault. I put a bad title on it. It happens.
But the message of the article is something that a lot of people have been waiting to hear. I can’t tell you how many times I have had conversations in which someone interjected the inevitable…
That’s a hard question to answer because no one really wants to be “that guy.” This goes for the person making the comment as well. No offense but that person isn’t telling me something like, “follow me I have a plan.” Everyone is waiting for someone else to take the lead.
Well, someone has taken the lead and in fact it’s several people that have. We all know about the Trucker’s strike that will be here very soon. It is planned for October 11-13. For those who may have missed it, you can find more information at ridefortheconstitution.org
As the truckers prepare to do their best to force their own brand of government shut down, Mr. Larry Klayman (founder of Judicial Watch) has upped the ante and is planning his own date with destiny.
Tim Brown reports:
In the wake of bikers roaring through the streets of DC in protest and just ahead of a planned shut down of DC by truckers, founder of Judicial Watch Larry Klayman has set a date of November 19, 2013 on which he is calling for Americans to “descend onWashington, D.C., en masse, and demand that he leave town and resign from office if he does not want to face prison time” for pushing “his Muslim, socialist, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, anti-white, pro-illegal immigrant, pro-radical gay and lesbian agenda.”
Klayman is of course talking about Barack Obama.
Isn’t this what we asked for? Isn’t this what we have been crying for?
We need these traitors gone and we need to start at the very top. After Obama rolls we can go after the rest like a bull in a China shop.
A blind man throwing darts could spear a traitor within this group. Even the good guys aren’t that good. I’m getting sick of patting people on the back simply because they do their jobs. That’s what we pay them to do. They aren’t going the extra mile simply because they are part of the 2% in D.C. who are semi-honest. They are simply doing their job.
What is wrong with this picture? Does your boss come up to you every day and say, “Bob, way to run that drill press. You should be president of this company.”
Probably not. But that’s exactly what we do every day in America. We make heroes out of guys like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul and it’s not because they are extra special, although I am fond of both. It’s because they actually do their job. Since they do their job we want to make them president. Think about that and think about it hard. If only a handful of people did their jobs at your place of work it wouldn’t last long. (hint)
People, things have to change. It is not supposed to be like this.
So what’s it going to be Patriots?
Article from 2012 – just a WHOLE year ago. For you Russia lovers, remember that a time may come if you continue to “Believe in Putin” that you might become radioactive atoms floating in the stratosphere for some centuries. The Russians ARE NOT OUR FRIENDS. What Putin is really thinking about is planning and directing the Russian military is to be able to carry out is a first strike scenario. You know, for his memoirs. A.P.
Almost as if the strategic leaders and the media have no idea what’s happening on Russian soil, Dmitry Medvedev seems to be shouting it from the rooftops. As we have learned in the past, when Russia makes promises, they lie; when Russia makes threats, they are telling the downright truth. In just the past week, they have made one threat after another concerning their resistance to NATO’s missile shield, and things just got worse.
Exacerbating the tensions between NATO allies and Russia, Medvedev decides to flex Russian muscles on their nuclear capabilities. Charles Clover and Geoff Dyer of FT.com report:
Then, taking the podium in a glittering Kremlin ballroom, Mr. Medvedev declared that Russia’s younger generation needed positive role models to inspire them towards “success in literature, art, education, and” – he paused wistfully – “nuclear weapons”.
Medvedev continues to talk about Russia’s itchy trigger finger and their nuclear arms capabilities.
“They may still come in handy,” he said, apropos, seemingly, of nothing. “We’re not going to use them, but let’s still keep them around, because we have a big country, a complex country. We must value it and protect it.”
This heightened rhetoric is suspected to be coming from what was discussed at the most recent NATO summit in Chicago. The NATO European missile defense shield has been the subject of debate over the past few weeks, but it seems as if Russia is bringing the aggravation to a head. They claim that the defensive measures of the shield would provoke war. But, I thought that war was over? Apparently, not.
In fact, the article goes on to state:
If that were to happen, said General Nikolai Makarov, chief of Russia’s general staff, it could lead to an “illusion of security”, which could lead to war. Countries allowing the missile defence shield on their soil, Gen Makarov said, risked a Russian nuclear first strike. “A decision on pre-emptive use of the attack weapons available will be made when the situation worsens,” he breezily told a news conference this month.”
Yes, the good general actually said the words, “nuclear first strike”. This is extremely unnerving, especially given their recent activities, as reported earlier last week. Steve Gutterman of Reuters reports:
The Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) was successfully launched from the Plesetsk facility in northwestern Russia and its dummy warhead landed on target on the Kamchatka peninsula on the Pacific coast, the Defense Ministry said.”
The new ICBM has capabilities, which suggest that the Russians had anticipated NATO’s construction of the shield.
The new missile is expected to improve Russia’s offensive arsenal, “including by increasing the capability to overcome missile defense systems that are being created”, the ministry said in a statement.
The General Makarov’s comments of a first strike are especially scary, concerning NORAD’s current level of preparedness. The Clinton administration implemented PDD 60, which states that the US will absorb a first strike before retaliating. In an interview with Robert Bell of the National Security Council, he stated that the US will no longer “launch on warning”. He further says,
“Our policy is to confirm that we are under nuclear attack with actual detonations before retaliating,”
In short, if Russia does decide to launch a first strike in response to NATO’s deployment of the European missile shield, they shall certainly succeed (and their newly tested ICBM has proven it can get through). This makes the US and NATO allies strategically sitting ducks.
Arming Terrorists and Disarming Americans
New Jersey –-(Ammoland.com)- As a prospective military strike against the Syrian regime dominates the headlines, we are reminded by administration officials that any military action will not include boots on the ground and will not be focused on regime change.
In a turn of events mimicking an episode from the Twilight Zone, once-hawkish Republicans are advocating non-intervention and their peacenik colleagues across the aisle are actually supporting a military strike in the Middle East.
While Congress debates whether to physically attack the Assad Regime, many lawmakers are reevaluating whether to send military aid to the Syrian rebels. A limited military strike “also fits into a broader strategy that can bring about over time the kind of strengthening of the opposition,” Obama told congressional leaders at a White House Meeting on Sept. 3, 2013. This comes months after the House and Senate Select Committees on Intelligence voted to approve the President’s plan to arm the Syrian opposition.
“Gypsy voting” causes concerns in Colorado
COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. — A different form of voter fraud is causing concern for the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder.
It’s called Transient voting, or “Gypsy voting.”
The newly enacted “Voter Access and Modernized Election Act” removes the waiting period between a person moving to a new district, and being able to vote in that district. Residents can now register a new address and vote in their new district in the same day.
The process is simple. According to the text of the bill, they only need to provide the new permanent address, promise “it is their sole place of legal residence” and “swear the information provided on the form is true” under penalty of perjury. Then by law, they must be given a ballot.
“It comes down to their honor and willingness to risk possible criminal prosecution,” El Paso County Clerk Wayne Williams said.
Williams said he fears people can state their “intent” to move to District 11 prior to the recall vote, citing a fake or temporary address and then move their legal address again afterward.
“This bill only allows prosecution afterwards instead of prevention beforehand. So, this last presidential election for example, we had an individual who submitted 5 different voter registrations. But, we caught that before the ballots went out so that individual didn’t get the chance to vote 5 times. The problem with the new law is that check went away,” Williams said.
Monday saw the second highest voter turnout of State Senator John Morse’s recall election with a total of 12,985 residents turning in ballots. 122 of those who’ve voted so far are new registrants, or have just changed their registration to El Paso County.
The law now requires suspicious registrations to be passed along to the District Attorney to investigate. Alerts could be raised if the person doesn’t eventually claim the move in other areas. For example, registering their vehicle to the new address, switching utilities bills at the address to their name or changing the address on their driver’s license.
But, Williams said that’s not enough to quell his concerns about tomorrow’s recall results. His biggest concern is once a ballot is cast, it can’t be taken back. That’s a protection in place for any voter’s anonymity.
“Despite who they voted for, they might be cheering for them from the criminal justice center, but the individual will still have recieved that vote,” Williams said.
If you haven’t voted in the recall election and still would like to cast a ballot or register, voting is open Tuesday, September 10 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Any voter in line at a Voter Service and Polling Center before 7:00 PM will be allowed to vote as long as they stay in line.
Reports are coming in that several people have walked in and taken ballots and then walked out to perhaps cause a “challenge” to the recall of John Morris and Angela Girhon here in Colorado.
For the record this is to recall two of the states congress-critters for their rabid support of anti-gun measures here in the State of Colorado, a once-free state where guns were a normal way of life, but things like AR-15s and 30 round magazines have been suddenly banned for us.
Yes, yes we should.
Some believe he means “Russia”. Others believe “asymmetrical attacks on America”.
I think we should expect anything, up to and including direct attacks in America by terror cells that are obviously here (they crossed a porous border), and perhaps the unknown like a nuclear bomb in a harbor someplace, a direct attack by Russians on our military in the region or naval vessels in the Med.
We don’t know with any surety that Assad used weapons on the Syrians, or whether the Muslim Brotherhood did it. We don’t know who provided the weapons (we believe it was Saddam). We don’t know why the President suddenly wants to do this thing without the approval of the American people and Congress.
There is no strategic plan, there is no politic plan to fuse the military action with fixing the problem and there is no real threat to America – at the moment. If we attack them and Iran, Hezbollah, Russia and God-Knows-Who-Else jumps in and piles on – well, all bets are off.
“Secretary Clinton supports the president’s effort to enlist the Congress in pursuing a strong and targeted response to the Assad regime’s horrific use of chemical weapons,” the aide said.
Clinton is scheduled to appear Monday afternoon at a forum on wildlife trafficking.
She will likely repeat her White House comments during her speech Tuesday night at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, the source added.
In addition to pushing for diplomatic efforts to remove al-Assad from power, Clinton backed a proposal last year to provide weapons to Syrian rebels when she served as secretary of state.
Clinton also issued warnings in January shortly before leaving office about Iran’s involvement in Syria, saying the country was providing al-Assad’s regime with military supplies. She urged Iran, as well as Russia, to reconsider their aid to the war-torn country.
PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) — A 107-year-old man was killed after SWAT officers shot back at him during a standoff at a home, police in the southeastern Arkansas city of Pine Bluff said Sunday.
Police were called to the home Saturday afternoon about a disturbance and say officers arrived to find Monroe Isadore had threatened two people by pointing a weapon at them.
Officers had the pair leave the home for their own safety and approached a bedroom looking for Isadore. When the officers announced who they were, Isadore shot through the door at them but missed hitting them, said Pine Bluff Lt. David Price in a news release.
The officers retreated to a safer area, and supervisors and additional help were called, Price said. Supervisors started negotiating with Isadore and continued after SWAT officers arrived at the home about 45 miles southeast of Little Rock.
Looks like the “No Boots on the Ground” was bullshit from the get-go… Below is some stuff we collected. Read through it all and think carefully about what you’ve done today to prepare for nuclear war, or major terrorism in the United States, because frankly, it’s leading to an all out war with Islam, possibly Russia, China and who knows who else…

The article at the bottom of my comments is a couple of days old, it’s from Debka – so it’s not the best source but is probably accurate. Basically we’re looking at the following states being involved in this as things heat up:
Syria, Iran, Hezbollah, Russia, China
Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States of America
France is “waiting” for more information from the UN.
UK is really “just waiting”.
Russia has moved about 8 ships total toward the Med. The US has moved a few subs, some destroyers into the Med and the Nimitz Carrier group to the Gulf.
Obama is preparing the country for an attack, “limited in scope and duration”, promising “no boots on the ground”. Anyone who has been in the military KNOWS this isn’t true, isn’t going to be true and can’t possibly work. Anyone with even a limited sense of tactics understands you don’t telegraph your moves to the “enemy”. Anyone with even a rudimentary grasp of strategy knows you don’t put all your eggs in one basket when planning any sort of an attack. And anyone with a clue about life understands you don’t go to war for no good reason and you certainly don’t do it if you can’t PROVE you have a good reason. Obama has not proved anything.
The Senate committee just delivered the Resolution to go into Syria to the full Senate. Congress, both houses will debate and vote likely next week on this.
We’re standing on the verge of World War III – without a “draft”, without American support, without support of the majority of Congress – and we’re less than a week away from September 11. Rumors are rampant on the Internet that there’s more than meets the eye here, and the country is “confused” according to our so-called “leader” Obama.
First he sets a “Red Line” then when the bad guys cross it a month ago, it takes time to verify this, and now he’s ready to go into a limited in scope and duration “war” against the Assad regime, to apparently punish the regime, but to give a leg up to verified enemies of America – Hezbollah, Muslim Brotherhood and other Muslim lunatics. Iran is saying how they will “bring it” to the US. Russia is backing Syria. Syria is claiming their own allies now. The Chinese are going to back the Russians. Obama has castrated our military in recent months through the shut down of units, bases, equipment, and firing of men smarter than himself.
The United States is being set up for failure big time by this man. Americans, whom for the most part are opposed to this “action” in Syria are caught in the middle of all of the forces massing on the horizon.
America is, from intelligence, full of leaderless Islamic cells – from Iranian Revolutionary Guard to Hezbollah, to Al Qaeda. Americans are being disarmed in some states including my own, in an attemp(?) to make us more vulnerable to outside forces.
It is time to stand up and be heard. It’s time to remove this asshat from the White House. It’s time for his Impeachment to begin. Get on the phone and start making the case with your members of Congress. We have to stop this guy from bringing the nukes down on our heads for his own ego.
Syria’s Muqdad threatens World War III for US strike
DEBKAfile September 4, 2013, 5:22 PM (GMT+02:00)
Syria’s deputy foreign minister Faisal Muqdad said Wednesday his regime would not give in to threats of a US-led military strike, even if a third world war erupts. In an interview with AFP, Faisal Muqdad said his government had taken “every measure” to counter a potential intervention aimed at punishing the regime of Bashar al-Assad over a suspected deadly poison gas strike, was mobilizing its allies and would take every measure “to retaliate against… aggression.”
DEBKAfile: This is the first time a regime official has intimated that Damascus has invoked the mutual defense pacts existing between Syria, Iran and Hizballah.
Up until today I’ve considered this whole Syria thing total folly.
But my American Military Mind started really thinking this through.
Today several Travel Warnings were issued by State. It occurs to me that the US Government isn’t telling the Public everything. So, I’m going to lay this out as if I were standing there listening in to the briefings we can’t usually hear.
Pretend for a moment you’re standing in a Congressional Classified Briefing and they bring up the number of “rebel groups” (There are about 1200 different groups). They bring up that the most powerful among those Rebels are Hezbollah related. Hearing more information about this and the fact that there are actually chemical weapons available in that country you realize suddenly that if the Rebels WIN this civil war, they get their hands on those WMD.
Now, who do you think will not OWN those items?
To use that stuff on Americans. On US Embassies. On Israelis. On Christians. On innocents. On cities. On subways, trains, airports, malls….
After considering this, perhaps the whole reason the President wants to go in there (other than regime change which I think is his real reason for this) is to stop the terrorists. Nope. Obomber doesn’t want to do that, those are his people. He wants to clear out Assad and allow the Muslim Brotherhood to take over.
The Pentagon, the US military, Congress and most of the American people are smarter than the President gives us credit for being. The MILITARY will go in there and secure or destroy the WMD to prevent it from falling into the hands of terrorists.
Remember them calling Bush a liar about Iraqi WMD? Remember most of us saying “It was moved to Syria”? Remember that Obama doesn’t want Bush to get any credit and is blaming him for everything?
No folks what this is truly about is allowing Obama to appear like a winner, Bush like a loser, hiding the fact that the WMD in Syria belonged to Saddam (and this will vindicate Bush if we can get a-hold of that stuff and prove it) and it will put Obama OUT of Office.
Honestly, this is a lot more complex than just letting Muslims to kill Muslims, or bombing some random camels and tents like Clinton did. No, no, no, my fellow Patriots.
This is Obama trying to get us nuked.
This is Obama trying to hide the fact the WMD belonged to Saddam.
This is Obama trying to look good.
This is the Pentagon trying to stop terrorists from getting their hands on these weapons.
My final thinking on this is… we probably should go in there. But do it right. Everything we’ve got. Take down BOTH sides of this conflict, destroy the chemical weapons and vindicate Bush, and if we get the chance, kick Russia in the nuts and take them down as well.
America has been made out to be a pansy-assed country by our OWN President. It’s time to remove this guy from office and do the right thing. But we have to DO IT RIGHT!
Is this entire Syrian issue with Chemical Weapons a cover up?
Seriously, Obama, almost a year ago stated what “the red line” was.
A year later – well in August it turns out that chemical weapons were used. And they were used BEFORE that apparently and we did nothing. Now we MUST do something?
What happened to the 27 or 30 scandals? Oh, yeah, they aren’t in the news suddenly are they?
Benghazi is being ignored by the media. Deaths of Navy Seals, ignored. The IRS scandal, ignored. The NSA spying, ignored. Project Gun walker and Fast and Furious, completely forgotten now… Obama has lied time and again to the American public. Kerry has lied, over and over. Hillary Clinton lied. The IRS Director lied. Eric Holder lied.
Or is this something worse, a method by which the asshole-in-chief manages to bring us to the brink of a nuclear war with Russia just so he and Putin can make nice-nice on the sidelines and “fix” the whole world, bring “peace in our time” or make himself appear to be larger than life?
What if this is all a giant hoax perpetrated by Obama and his puppet masters?
In regards to this Syria crisis, one of the Senators on the Foreign Relations committee (I didn’t catch who) mentioned Russia, asking specific and pointed questions of Kerry, after pointing out that the Russians had been providing money, aid, military defense equipment.
Kerry sputtered about an answer, and then stepped around the answer to basically ignore the Russian question.
Essentially, they (Kerry) doesn’t want the American Public to be confused or concerned about the Russians. Only chemical weapons.
We’re doomed to go to war.
No U.S. president has ever been turned down by Congress when asking to use military force. Ever…. this is why Obama took the time to ASK for a vote. His chances are good he will get a “yes” from Congress thereby preventing himself from being held personally responsible.
Needed a break from everything. Took a few days off. Went “fishing” for a few days. Caught a few…. oh… “fish”.
Anyway, been tracking Syria, the Russians, and the rest of the world political climate on the side, but keeping my comments limited.
Contrary to some of my friends who seem to believe the Russians are the good guys here I have to say they are certainly poking and prodding to awaken a sleeping Eagle. At the same time, Obama is acting like a complete buffoon. Obama IS a Buffoon. He’s an asshat and a clown. Some how he believes he has the right to launch a new war against someone in the Middle East. We’re tired of this shit and he needs to bring home our boys and girls and let them rest.
Facing off with the Russians is about as stupid a thing as he could do.
Invoking the War Powers Act is about as unconstitutional as he could do. He is asking Congress to back him. He hasn’t called Congress home so he is apparently in no hurry to cause a nuclear war.
And, please make no mistake about this, if we launch attacks against Syria, who happens to have Russia as an Ally Russia isn’t going to sit on their asses and do nothing. Now a lot of military personnel, and non-military personnel alike out there will argue the Russians can’t possibly stand up to the United States Military and ordinarily I’d agree. But the truth is the Russians and United States alike still have Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICMBs) armed with from 2-20 megaton warheads. Both countries can drop a warhead with pinpoint accuracy and we all know that.
No, their tanks can’t stand up to ours. Their military, as well trained and large as it is isn’t a match for ours.
But this isn’t completely about the Russians invading American Soil (or us doing the same to them). This is about Obama pressing Putin into a corner on Syria over might-be-chemical-weapons (and I’m not expert, but I’m both aware and cognizant of what Sarin nerve agents, or most nerve agents do to victims, and have seen videos of those who were affected by the chemical attack).
Currently, the Russians have around eighty armed vessels off the coast of Syria, including it appears two destroyers and at least one air craft carrier.
The US has sent a number of ships and the USS Nimitz is moving into place with a full carrier group. I won’t post troop movements here though, ever…. but I’ll point out we’re not on equal terms right now.
What the US and Russia are doing is playing Russian Roulette. One well placed nuke will take out most of the carrier group. One accidental shot across the wrong bow, at the wrong building (containing Russian citizens or troops) and its on like Donkey Kong.
I have “high confidence” we can “take” the Russians. But this, again, isn’t about our military. This is about the innocent people who will be caught up in the ensuing nuclear strife. Do I honestly think they will lob nukes at us? Yes, the Russians are NOT our friends, never have been our friends. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike the Russia people. I dislike the Communism they hold so dear, the deaths of millions because of Communism in the 19th and 20th centuries and I hate the fact that Putin is a former KGB bad boy who tries to look like a Russian James Bond on television. He’s certainly more “manly” than Obama though, and I think that is what makes the girls make puddles in their panties. And half the American “metrosexual” males, and maybe a good portion of the US military today.
The truth is, I don’t trust our own government to protect our own people against a nuclear war. In fact, I’m 100% certain the ONLY people protected will be the “Elites” in Congress, the White House and a few special “governors” around the country. I’m 100% certain that people like me, with a home in striking distant of any of several military installations will die in the first salvo rendering me useless to our own American fighting forces (the people of this country). Along with me, thousands or millions would die in my area alone. The whole region would be rendered useless to America, no more farming to the East, no military personnel here, no machines, no assets, no satellite control. Well, you get the bleakness of the picture and I don’t need to beat a dead horse.
Sure, some of you will severely disagree with me, and say how we won’t get into a nuclear weapon throwing contest. But, are you really that sure?
Basically, this is a clarion call to American Patriots around the country. Be ready for the worst. Be prepared. When the shit hits the fan, we’re on our own. There won’t be a government to help anyone, there won’t be a military force in place to protect American Citizens. Martial Law will be declared and you’ll be told to stay home and pretty much die alone.
The time is at hand…. Congress isn’t even in session and we’re going to see something happen, soon. I believe it won’t be what we expect at all.
The Republican Senator, Tom Coburn said President Obama is moving “perilously close” to impeachment, Sen. Tom Coburn told a town hall crowd this week, two reports said Thursday.
However, he stated he is a “friend” to the President and further went on to say:
“That’s not something you take lightly, and you have to use a historical precedent of what that means,” he said. “I think there’s some intended violation of the law in this administration, but I also think there’s a ton of incompetence, of people who are making decisions.
“I believe [an impeachment charge] needs to be evaluated and determined, but thank goodness it doesn’t have to happen in the Senate until they’ve brought charges in the House,” Coburn said. “Those are serious things, but we’re in a serious time. I don’t have the legal background to know if that rises to high crimes and misdemeanor, but I think they’re getting perilously close.”
Really, Senator? Thank “Goodness” you don’t have to “deal” with it? Let someone ELSE “deal with it”?
Senator, you’re not a man, you’re a coward. If you had the intestinal fortitude to follow through you’d be working with House members to arrange exactly what you’re talking about, IMPEACHMENT – and the eventual removal of this criminal from the Office of the President.
America has gone over the edge and you are sitting in the People’s building being HAPPY you don’t have to DO anything over Benghazi, over Ft. Hood Massacre (It was a bloody TERRORIST ATTACK). We are going to let Obama NOT take the blame for NSA, the IRS, the DOJ (I’m not going to name all the scandals here, but suffice it to say they were ALL CRIMES!)
Get off your lazy ass and get going on removing this criminal from office before American burns.
Every, single tag and category attached to this blog post had a crime committed against America – from the President speaking out AGAINST Zimmerman and FOR gun control, to Benghazi, to the IRS (which is being ignored) to the NSA (also being ignored) to the “sequestration” and loss of food for wounded warriors at Walter Reed while Gays are being given free leave to go marry their partners in other states.
Give Americans a break, Senator and kick this bastard out of OUR HOUSE – before we do it.
That’s all… Just impeach the bastard. Over Benghazi. Over IRS. Over NSA. Over all the scandals. Over all the lies. Impeach the man.
America needs to be repaired.
Apparently the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs has released a new letter.
If anyone in America THINKS they are going to take our weapons, they have another THINK coming. In the form of hot lead. Do NOT let the Leftists in the United States kid you one little bit. They want your complete and utter subjugation and will stop at nothing to get it.
We ARE at war over this. The first shots were fired in Sandy Hook, lest anyone forget this. There are plenty of reasons to believe that was a set up. To date, no one has proved beyond a shadow of doubt that the shooter was Lanza. No one.
Got your attention, didn’t I? Well, good, pay attention here. We haven’t been training people for such an attack in forever… not since I was a little kid. Remember “Duck and Cover”?
Check this out:
Thousands of members of the armed forces including members of the Indiana National Guard are participating in mass disaster training in Jennings County.
Exercise Vibrant Response is in full effect at the Muscatatuck training camp and Camp Atterbury in Johnson County.
There is a video at the above link and here’s more for you to see.
I personally just don’t see a military coup in the United States as an option. But is my view of the world the same as others’ beliefs? Probably not. When it comes right down to it, with my vast amount of time as a military man, from my point of view, I can’t say that absolutely, definitely a coup could or would take place. The truth is, in MY time, no such thing could have or would have happened. But other factors are in play here that I would never have considered myself – but others might.
The Spanish have a long and storied history for coups – in fact, Mexicans and most Previously-ruled-by-Spain Central and South American countries follow suit. When the people get mad, they start a war. Someone winds up on top in the end, usually the existing military and a strong leader (regardless of his moral and ethically leanings). Most south and central American countries are what we consider “banana republics”.
Is America becoming a Banana Republic?
Let us look:
A Banana republic is a pejorative term for a country with a kleptocratic government, often with a primitive economy and sometimes a puppet state of a major power.
The more proper definition being: Banana republic is a political science term for a politically unstable country whose economy is largely dependent on the export of a single limited-resource product, such as bananas. It typically has stratified social classes, including a large, impoverished working class and a ruling plutocracy that comprises the elites of business, politics, and the military. This politico-economic oligarchy controls the primary-sector productions and thereby exploits the country’s economy. (Wikipedia)
kleptocracy: Kleptocracy, alternatively cleptocracy or kleptarchy, (from Greek: κλέπτης – kleptēs, “thief” and κράτος – kratos, “power, rule”, hence “rule by thieves”) is a form of political and government corruption where the government exists to increase the personal wealth and political power of its officials and the ruling class at the expense of the wider population, often without pretense of honest service. This type of government corruption is often achieved by the embezzlement of state funds.
plutocracy: Rule by the wealthy. We’re technically not being ruled by the wealthy, but then again we are. Rich lawyers are elected thus rich lawyers are in charge of most of the government’s various sectors. Companies lobby for power in the government (and I have no trouble with open markets).
So this author’s guess is that ARE a Banana Republic, or more accurately rapidly degenerating into a Banana Republic. We still have a Constitutional Republic and most of us KNOW this and MOST of us wouldn’t do anything against “the government” in the military. Whether some rogue officer would start something, I just don’t know – but I just can’t SEE it happening.
On the other hand…
1) Morals are in decline.
2) America is in decline.
3) Money is becoming worthless.
4) The economy is tanking.
5) Things are not worth what they once were.
6) People are in “gimme gimme” mode.
7) The President himself is working to divide people of this country.
8) The Left is fighting the Right on guns and every other thing you can imagine.
9) Detroit is the first major city to have fallen.
10) Other cities won’t be far behind.
11) Obamacare will destroy what’s left of the economy.
12) Oil and Coal are verboten.
13) Scandal after scandal has rocked DC and those are being called “phony”.
14) More people are on government help than are working now.
15) Political corruption
16) Government corruption
17) borders are uncontrolled, the “barbarian hordes” are coming through daily, by the thousands
18) the government coffers are being sucked dry by “entitlements” and the government keeps wanting more from the working people, the “rich” and corporations.
Rome fell for the many of the same reasons; moral decline, political corruption, “barbarian knowledge of Roman tactics” (think about that for a moment), a failing economy, unemployment of the working “class”, decline in ethics and values, natural disasters, barbarian invasion (Hmmmm…. border security?), military decay (not being trained right, and reduction in forces), and many other reasons.
So could a military coup take America back? I can not answer that question but I can certainly suggest that this country is in a condition which will facilitate such a thing happening. But will some military officer be able to gain enough power to lead enough American men, who are independent thinkers, into such a one way path? I seriously doubt it will happen. I don’t doubt the fall of America is upon us.
Time to jump over to Pat Dollard and read your daily information folks. This is… well, scary, but apparently what we’re up against in the world today. Below is the link, and some of the text you will find there.

Why would Muslim oil billionaires finance and develop controlling relationships with black college students? Well, like anyone else, they would do it for self-interest. And what would their self-interest be? We all know the top two answers to that question: 1. a Palestinian state and 2. the advancement of Islam in America. The idea then was to advance blacks who would facilitate these two goals to positions of power in the Federal government, preferably, of course, the Presidency. And why would the Arabs target blacks in particular for this job? Well, for the same reason the early communists chose them as their vanguard for revolution (which literally means “change”) in America. Allow me to quote Trotsky, in 1939: “The American Negroes, for centuries the most oppressed section of American society and the most discriminated against, are potentially the most revolutionary element of the population. They are designated by their historical past to be, under adequate leadership, the very vanguard of the proletarian revolution.” Substitute the word “Islam” for the words “the proletarian revolution,” and you most clearly get the picture, as Islam is a revolutionary movement just like communism is. (Trivia: it is from this very quote that communist Van Jones takes his name. Van is short for vanguard. He was born “Anthony”). In addition, long before 1979, blacks had become the vanguard of the spread of Islam in America, especially in prisons.
Interestingly, in context with the fact that this article was written by her father-in-law, Valerie Jarrett has an unusual amount of influence over Obama (along with personal security that may be even better than his, another unusual and intriguing bit of business here). And equally interesting is that Obama, who may have been a beneficiary of this Muslim money, and may now be in this Muslim debt, has aggressively pursued both of the Muslim agendas I cited above. And, also equally interesting, is that Obama has paid a king’s ransom for court ordered seals of any such records of this potential financing of his college education, and perhaps, of other of his expenses.
Lastly, it’s very important to note that the main source for the article is Khalid Mansour, “the same lawyer who allegedly helped arrange for the entrance of Barack Obama into Harvard Law School in 1988.” (Valerie Jarrett, by the way, was born in Iran. The one country protected by Obama from the sweep of the Arab Spring.) Now all of this may seem sensational, but let’s face facts. What makes it most disturbing is that not only is it all logical, but it suddenly makes a lot of previously confusing things make perfect sense. – Pat Dollard
I’m an American. I was born in the USA. Before me, my father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great-grandfather, great-great-great-grandfather and several generations prior were also born here.
One of them came over on a ship from Ireland, another from Scotland. Men before me have fought for this country from the Indian Wars to the Revolutionary War to the most recent wars in the Middle East. My sons are Americans and Patriots.
The lie that “We are all immigrants” has been told so often that it’s now being believed. Yes, my distant forefather DID come to America as an immigrant. A LEGAL Immigrant, albeit, forced to come here to find freedom from Oppression of the British Empire.
Today – illegal immigrants stream across the border in an effort to abuse our freedoms, to steal our tax monies and to commit crimes (illegal immigration, IS A CRIME). There is no checks and balances any more. Congress and the President do not want them.
Congress and the President don’t want us to defend ourselves.
The President has allowed agencies to spy on us, the DOJ to lie to us, to kill our own men by giving away guns to criminals, to kill our own military men, Navy Seals, to allow criminals and terrorists to kill our Ambassador and American heroes without investigation.
The current administration has worked to destroy the America my father, I and my children grew up in.
It is time to put a stop to the abuses of the American system, abuses to the American Taxpayer. It is TIME to FIRE the current government and replace it non-Marxists, non-Socialists and non-Progressives.
A war has been declared on Patriots in America. We’re now being labeled as terrorists and troublemakers, being called names like “Teabagger” (look that up) and worse.
Fight back. Resist “Hope and Change”. Resist Socialism, and Progressivism or suffer the long term consequences to this Great Nation.
Already the time is nearly past, and this country is nearly done.
Stand up and be heard!
It occurred to me a few hours ago when I was writing something that this whole thing, this Zimmerman thing, the “race baiting”, the race card playing, the pressure from above to cause riots and dissension among the people of this country is planned; part and parcel of a larger “conspiracy” (for lack of a better word) to completely terminate what America was and once stood for.
I mean we all suspect it, but seriously, how many times has Obama said of himself that he was like Lincoln, or worse, his people have said it and he’s been quiet about the whole thing?
Here’s one instance:
“Actually, Mr. Obama has evoked deliberately comparisons with Lincoln ever since he announced his candidacy for president on Feb. 10, 2007, at the Old State Capitol building in Springfield, Ill,” Boyer wrote. “He chose the site because it was the same place where Lincoln gave a famous speech condemning slavery and called for the Northern and Southern states to unite.”
Now…. what BETTER way to put himself in a “good light” with “his people” (I’m talking about the American people now, not his black friends) than to sound and act like Lincoln IF ONLY he had a National Crisis similar to that which once faced Lincoln himself; the breakup of America. States seceding from the Union would do it. Better yet a complete and total breakdown of Society to include a Civil War!
After all, could he not then be compared to Mandela AND Lincoln if only he could get a race war started. What if the word “apartheid” started making the rounds in the media as well? Could not Obama himself be seen as “Great” as Lincoln himself, and Nelson Mandela if ONLY he could re-unite the country after a bloody civil war, or better a race war. Why not kill two birds with one stone, so to speak?
So what if “Hispanic” is an ethic title, George IS white. And poor little 12-year-old-in-pictures Trayvon was an innocent little boy eating his candy and drinking his tea minding his own business.
Never MIND all the people drinking the Kool-Aid.
Don’t believe me. Check out the following links. Tell me, and be honest with yourself, where are the true racists?

“Our motto today is: We’re fired up and we’re not going to take it anymore,” said community activist Quanell X.
The rally began about 7 p.m. at Byrd Funeral Home, 2517 Wheeler, near the campus of Texas Southern University. Organizers said that location was picked for a reason.
“This is where they wish to send young black men – to the funeral home,” Quanell X said.
It was a dramatic theme that was repeated along the march route with protesters solemnly pushing a casket behind a hearse.
Bianca Fisher said she wasn’t particularly surprised that the jury set Zimmerman free.
“The mission of the judicial system is to enslave black people,” she said.
Benita Gordon brought her son, Devon, to the protest, which lasted about 90 minutes.
“We’re walking tonight for Trayvon,” she said. “We need fair rules all the way around.”
Marchers shut down southbound traffic along Texas 288 at Southmore for about 10-15 minutes. No police were seen. The crowds allowed an ambulance to pass, but other motorists were forced to wait.
“It’s civil disobedience. The people are angry and have a right to be angry,” Quanell X said.
