Statists and Gun Rights

 Representative Carolyn McCarthy Democrat/Statist of New York, a staunch supporter of restricting gun rights said the lax gun laws in America led to the mass shooting in Norway. What the more restrictive gun laws in Norway did not stop it? In Norway a license is required to own a gun, and the owner must provide a written statement saying why he or she wants one. What, a criminal is not going to LIE? 

Some people believe it is up to the police to protect us. As a former police officer, I say this is a false premise. Policemen usually respond after the crime and do follow-up work to catch the perpetrator.

 Others believe in more restrictive gun laws and still others believe in an outright ban on them. You’ve seen the signs in America. It’s a picture of a gun encircled with a line slashed through it. They are everywhere. These signs are in schools, churches, hospitals, government buildings, and businesses. They’re supposed to represent a universal message stating that No Guns Are Allowed i.e. a ‘Gun Free’ zone on the premises. Yet in the criminal mind it represents a place where there will be little or no resistance, in other words a Shooting Gallery, because criminals do not care about laws.

In Norway the police were unable to get to the shooting site while it was occurring, because they did not have a boat or helicopter. In the Virginia Tech shooting the Media and a number of heavily armed police officers were on campus as seen in the video when the shootings were occurring, because you could hear the gunshots coming from inside the school at that time. Nevertheless, having more policemen on the scene as seen in the News video did not prevent Cho from murdering those innocent people.

The restrictive gun laws in Norway did not prevent the massacre from happening. Being a gun free zone did not stop the massacre as in Virginia Tech. There are EVIL people in the world who mean us harm. People need to be able to defend themselves from these evildoers. If the people in Norway or the students at Virginia Tech were armed the carnage may have been limited or at least they would have had a chance to protect themselves and possibly take out the shooter. 

 People have a God given right to be able to protect themselves and their family. I say they have a duty to do so. This means people should be able to arm themselves anywhere. These rights are protected under the Second Amendment of the Constitution in America, however several countries in the UN, as well as FOOLS like Representative Carolyn McCarthy do NOT think so. That is why Patriotic Americans need to stand up and fight for the right to protect themselves and their family.

Who are the ADULTS

On July 29, 2011 Harry Reid, Dick Durbin and Chuck Schumer (the Three Stooges) held a Press conference after the US House passed the Boehner Debt Ceiling Bill. They said the Boehner Bill was tabled by a bi-partisan vote 59-41, because it is a catastrophe and would roil the markets. The six Republicans were: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).

They touted they were the adults in the room and this was a serious matter. They claimed Reid’s bill was the adult bill and must be passed for the sake of the country; all the while they were grinning and snickering during the Press conference. So, who are the ADULTS? And what was so FUNNY? The majority of the American people do not think this is a laughing matter.

 They talked about the need to ‘compromise,’ however a Statists’ definition of ‘compromise’ is doing it their way.  They said there should be an up or down vote on raising the Debt Ceiling. Ironically, Harry Reid and the Statists did not do an up or down vote on Boehners Bill. They also emphasized that Boehner’s Bill was voted to be tabled on a bi-partisan vote and that is why the Republicans should go along with the Reid Bill. Yet, when Obamacare was rammed through there was bi-partisan opposition to it in the House. So why did Reid then proceed to do parliamentary procedures (trickery) to get Obamacare passed?

They said the Republican’s were playing politics and the Debt Ceiling has to be raised. They justified it by saying it has been raised in the past. Yet, in 2006 Barack Hussein Obama and all the other Democrat/Statists voted against raising the debt ceiling. They were right then for the wrong reason, because I guess it’s alright for them to play politics. The debt debate should have been handled then but wasn't.

Why have debt ceilings?  A debt ceiling is supposed to force Congress to spend within their means; yet what good is it if every time it is reached the Statists vote to increase it?  This country has a spending problem, which has been exacerbated since the Democrat Statist’s and Obama had the power.

The Tea Party caucus was sent to Washington to change the way things are done in Washington. Nevertheless, the Tea Party caucus is being vilified by Obama, the Democrat/Statist’s, RINO’s and the so- called Mainstream Media as being intransigent and unwilling to compromise. The Tea Party caucus is trying to do the responsible thing and get control of the National debt. Therefore, it is the Tea Party caucus who ARE the ADULTS in the room.

Be Careful What You Wish For

Barack Hussein Obama and other Statists are talking about invoking the 14th Amendment claiming it gives the President the authority to raise the Debt Ceiling and by-pass Congress. I guess they are referring to Section 4 of the Amendment which states: …The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned

Who is questioning the validity of the debt? No one. Many people are questioning the amount of debt and the need to cut spending. The debt has been incurred and needs to be paid. The Government has the money to pay the debts that would not cause a default without raising the debt ceiling.

I am not an attorney, however I can read and I do not see where in the 14th Amendment it gives the President the authority to by-pass Congress and raise the Debt Ceiling on his own. We are not living in a Dictatorship, at least not yet.

Nevertheless, since Obama and the Statists want to invoke the Constitution they may want to check out the following: Section 3 of the 14th Amendment states: No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

Article 2 Section 4 of the Constitution states: The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

It is considered an Act of Treason to give aid and comfort to our enemies. The Obama Regime has been funding the Taliban and wants to fund the Muslim Brotherhood. The Taliban and the   Muslim Brotherhood are enemies of the United States. The Muslim Brotherhood is a mortal enemy of our civilization. Their slogan says so openly, their way is Jihad, and their method is death. The Muslim Brotherhood calls for a “Civilization-Jihadist Process,” in which they would destroy the Western civilization from within.  Nevertheless, Barack Hussein Obama has opened formal contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood and wants to support them with $3 billion.  

Therefore, wouldn’t this act be considered giving aid and comfort to the enemy and considered an act of Treason?   Wouldn’t Obama be violating his oath of office he swore to, which is to uphold and defend the Constitution? After all, the primary responsibility of Government is to protect its citizens from its enemies. Furthermore, the Constitution specifically states the President can be impeached for an act of Treason. If Obama decides to go through with supporting our enemy, The Muslim Brotherhood, will Congress have the COURAGE to impeach him?

James Madison & the KISS Principle

Apparently, James Madison believed in the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) Principle when it came to governing, because he wrote in Federalist 62: … “The internal effects of a mutable policy are still more calamitous. It poisons the blessing of liberty itself. It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is today, can guess what it will be tomorrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?
Another effect of public instability is the unreasonable advantage it gives to the sagacious, the enterprising, and the moneyed few over the industrious and uniformed mass of the people. Every new regulation concerning commerce or revenue, or in any way affecting the value of the different species of property, presents a new harvest to those who watch the change, and can trace its consequences; a harvest, reared not by themselves, but by the toils and cares of the great body of their fellow-citizens. This is a state of things in which it may be said with some truth that laws are made for the few, not for the many.
In another point of view, great injury results from an unstable government. The want of confidence in the public councils damps every useful undertaking, the success and profit of which may depend on a continuance of existing arrangements. What prudent merchant will hazard his fortunes in any new branch of commerce when he knows not but that his plans may be rendered unlawful before they can be executed? What farmer or manufacturer will lay himself out for the encouragement given to any particular cultivation or establishment, when he can have no assurance that his preparatory labors and advances will not render him a victim to an inconstant government? In a word, no great improvement or laudable enterprise can go forward which requires the auspices of a steady system of national policy.
But the most deplorable effect of all is that diminution of attachment and reverence which steals into the hearts of the people towards a political system which betrays so many marks of infirmity, and disappoints so many of their flattering hopes. No government, any more than an individual, will long be respected without being truly respectable; nor be truly respectable without possessing a certain portion of order and stability.”

Media's Love Affair with Barack Hussein Obama

Stephen Marche, a reporter for the Esquire wrote, "How can we not love Obama?" This reporter is delusional. How can this reporter be so WRONG? Then again, many of the reporters on the left aka. The Mainstream Media are mesmerized by BarackHussein Obama as if he was the Messiah.

I do not love Barack Hussein Obama and there are many other Patriotic Americans who feel the same way. Obama is a Community Agitator. He is a divisive and polarizing figure who pits one group of Americans against another. Obama is a BULLY and a LIAR, who uses scare tactics and threats against the American people. His policies and rhetoric shows weakness to the World, which endangers America. He likes to call himself a progressive; however that is an inaccurate description of him. Obama is a Statist, and oppressor or tyrant. He used water as a means to bribe two representatives from California for their votes on healthcare, which was a despicable act that dictators do to their people. Healthcare was passed because John Boehner signed onto the Stupak (Stupid) Amendment; otherwise it would have gone down to defeat. So, Boehner should get the credit or blame for Obamacare passing.

Barack Hussein Obama happened to be President when Osama Bin Laden was located and killed. The MSM were drooling all over themselves that Bin Laden was killed under this Democrat President calling it a “gutsy” call. ObaME has said it was his mission to capture or kill Osama Bin Laden. Therefore, it was NOT a gutsy call, it was the only call. Nevertheless, it took ObaME 16 hours to supposedly make the decision to get Bin Laden, after knowing he was in the compound since August 2010. Why didn’t the MSM ask him what took him so long? When you look at the picture of the War Room on that day Obama looked like the smallest person in the room.

Adolph Hitler was idolized by the German people and many others around the World. Hitler like Obama also made the cover of Time Magazine prior to the World realizing what a Monster he was. One of the problems this country is having is reporters like Marche and the Mainstream Media are writing puff pieces like this on Obama that some people may believe is true.

United States National Debt as reported from the Treasury Department

July 2011 ................14.3 Trillion

Under the Obama Regime 3.4 Trillion Dollars was added to the debt in two years. 5.6 Trillion since the Democrats took control. Nevertheless, Barack Hussein Obama wants to blame the debt crisis on George W. Bush.
