The Opportunity to Push Gun Control - They Can Smell Your Fear


Jeh Johnson, Secretary of Homeland Security, stated that 'common sense' gun control is crucial to the safety of Americans and the U.S. in the wake of the terrorist attack in Orlando that left 49 dead and 53 wounded.  As a side note, Jeh Johnson was nominated to his post by none other than Obama.

And this from Obama, "As I said a few days ago, being tough on terrorism requires more than talk. Being tough on terrorism, particularly the sorts of homegrown terrorism that we've seen now in Orlando and San Bernardino, means making it harder for people who want to kill Americans to get their hands on assault weapons that are capable of killing dozens of innocents as quickly as possible," Mr. Obama said.

HillaryClinton called for a ban on sporting rifles (she calls them "Assault Rifles") as if doing so will magically reform terrorists who massacre innocents without conscience and commit suicide in the name of Allah.

Why do the Left push this anti-gun agenda after each Gun Free Zone. Rampage Shooter mass murder and terrorist attack?

It's a matter of opportunity, pure and simple. This is the moment they smell the fear dripping off the uneducated populace. 

Liberals - and their counterparts in the media - understand they can play off the emotionally combustible mixture of Fear, Anger and Frustration to further their gun banning agenda, while giving those so-inclined Americans a soft, fluffy blanket of false security and safety.  They know they can't win on facts.  They know they can't rescind the Second Amendment.  They know they can't use logic - because there isn't any.  They can only use your fear, your anger, your frustration and your seething feeling of social impotence against you.  This is the only way for them to attain their goal of disarming our Nation.
   
Fear is a powerful thing and they pounce on it like a hungry wolf.

According to The Religion of Peace, from 2011 thru 2015, there have been 13,157 Muslim terrorist attacks in roughly 58 different Countries around the World.  There have been 97,895 killed and 120,422 injured in these terrorist attacks - almost all of them Countries that have either very strict gun control or a complete ban on guns. 

And what do our Liberal politicians do?  First, they refuse to admit it's Radical Islam.  Second?  To deflect from Number one, they blame it on the NRA and sporting rifles.


They take the fear and disbelief of the sheep of this Country and turn it into a driving force of anger and vengeance towards law abiding gun owners.  


The Left, using the Saul Alinksy playbook, attempts to manipulate the uneducated and fearful masses. 

Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals -with commentary by Glen Beck
RULE #5  “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (GB - Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)

RULE #8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (GB - Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)

RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist. (GB - Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists’ minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.)

RULE 12: "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (GB - This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

It's the gun owners fault!  How dare these despicable gun nuts care more for their weapons of war, than for the safety
and security of our children, our families and our great Nation!

It's the NRA's fault!  The big bad NRA, crazed with power and greed!  They lobby against "common sense" gun control!  They only care for the gun companies and their precious money!

Amazing... right?

Let me run those numbers by you again:

2011 - 2015
13,157 terrorist attacks around the world by Radical Muslims
97,895 Killed
120,422 Injured

And Obama, Clinton and Homeland Security would have you believe it's the guns fault!  It's the NRA's fault!  And the only way to defend ourselves against this scourge, is to take away our ability to defend ourselves.

Yeah, you read that right.

See through the veil of fear mongering.  Stand strong against the vitriol heaped upon good Americans who believe in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  Make the Liberal Left pay for their hatred of all things American.

Come November, the Left should be afraid.  They should be Very Afraid.

The Second Amendment - 27 Words That Define a Nation

"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."


27 words.

In the USA, these are 27 of the most important words ever written.  27 words that insure the ability of an armed rebel force to fight for Freedom against those who would attempt to enslave us.  27 words that whisper menacingly..." we will not go gently into that good night".  27 words that separate us from every other Nation on this planet we call home.  27 words that protect the other 7591 words in the Constitution and Bill of Rights of these United States of America.  27 words that men and women of this great Country are ready, willing and able to live for, to fight for and to die for.

27 words.

Those 27 words evoke more words... Strong.  Spirit.  Flag.  Noble. Fearless.  Stoic.  Honor.  Liberty.  Integrity.  Independence.  Brave. Preserve.  Defend.  Fight.  Rebel.  Loyalty.  Timeless.

The simplicity of the Second Amendment is in its wording.  There are no extraneous or superfluous words or reasoning.  It is bare bones, austere and elegant in it's simple message.


"A well regulated militia,"  as defined in parlance from 1789, meant a civilian military force, using arms in working order, functioning as expected"being necessary to the security of a free State," States were expected to defend themselves against a tyrannical government militia, "the Right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."  To ensure the ability to form the civilian militia, the people's Right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed upon by the very government they may have to defend against.

Those who suggest the Founders had no idea what kind of
weaponry would be available in the future, are quite correct.  And due to this inability to see into the future, the Founders did not restrict the arms the People could keep and bear.  They understood that warfare and it's machinations change, morph and advance, and by leaving the Second Amendment without restrictions, the People would always have access to the arms of the military they may be forced to defend against, allowing the People to fight against the very tyranny the Founding Fathers had just faced... and defeated.

In truth, the Second Amendment is much more than the sum of its words, it is the line of demarcation for a way of life as defined by either the Left or the Right.

Say "Second Amendment" to a Liberal and it isn't just about guns, its about a perceived lifestyle that is a complete 180 degrees away from their beliefs.  Their thoughts might look like this - Rednecks, Christians, Beer, Rural, Stupid, Conservative, Backwards, Selfish, Thoughtless, Racist, Bigot, Hater, Wingnut.

If a Liberal brings up the Second Amendment, a gun owner might immediately think - Lefty, Socialist, Godless, Safe Space, Trigger Words, Racist, Bigot, Liberal, Self Righteous, Arrogant, Pompous, Wealth Sharing, Free College, Free Healthcare, Libtard.

In the end, protecting the Second Amendment is truly the defense
of our Country, our history, our National pride, our individuality, our personal freedoms... our very way of life.

Come this November, America is going to be defined by the voters of this Country.  The next President will load the Supreme Court with either Constitutional Justices who will research and understand the intent of the original framers, or Liberal activist Justices who believe our Constitution and our way of life is a thing of the past and rule accordingly - and these Justices will hold sway over our Rights for decades to come.

The Second Amendment is the touchstone of our Constitution and the base that all other Amendments stand firm upon.  If the Second Amendment should fall, the rest will follow, tumbling our Country and our American way of life into the basement of history, the trap door slamming shut, never to be seen or heard from again.

This cannot be allowed.

"I want to die a slave to principles, not men."
"I'd rather die on my feet, than to live on my knees."

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: ‘I can’t imagine what the country would be’ under President Trump

In an interview with the New York Times published Sunday, Supreme
Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg stated that Donald Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee, would do lasting harm to the Supreme Court if elected.

“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” she said. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”


I wholly believe it's unethical for a Supreme Court Justice to give opinion on politics.  A SCJ should be - or at the very least give the impression of being - apolitical. Any judge, and more importantly a Supreme Court Justice, should always present themselves as impartial, unbiased and fair-minded - they certainly should not be stumping for one candidate over the other in a Presidential election.  

Ruth Bader Ginsburg does none of this... she has no problem implying she hates Trump.  She believes his Conservative values and his view of what America should be, is beyond the scope of her comprehension and she would rather move out of Country than to live in a place where her own ideology is not the one we follow.  

Very often, Supreme Court Justices must rule on the Constitutionality of cases that may or may not clash with their own personal views.  They are required to put aside their emotions, their personal views and ideologies and make the correct decision based on what the Founding Fathers authored.


So knowing this, ask yourself, if after her outburst, do you honestly believe Justice Ginsburg can be an impartial Keeper of the Constitution on any case that may hold views that differ from her own?  After her diatribe against a Conservative Presidential candidate, do you trust she will be open-minded and unbiased when judging a case involving Conservative values that clash with her own Socialist world view? 

She makes no bones in revealing she doesn't want anyone to actually follow the Constitution... that nominating Conservative Judges who research the original intent of the Founding Fathers is a bad thing, something she obviously agrees with.

Justice Ginsburg has become so empowered by her own ideology and position on the Supreme Court, that she now believes her job is to ignore the application of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and make new law out of thin air to feed her Socialist views, proving to one and all this next election is the most important our Country has seen in, it seems, forever.  

The November election is a perfect storm of politics, with a Globalized Socialist ideology clashing with the American way of life - the only one of its kind in the World... and the only safe harbor is in the Voting Booth.  


If you want to protect our Constitution, if you want to protect our Bill of Rights, if you want to protect the Second Amendment, which protects all the others... you cannot vote for Hillary Clinton.  You cannot turn over the Supreme Court to her.  You cannot allow her to nominate more Liberal activist jurists of this type.  You cannot allow her to hold sway over our Supreme Court, our Constitution, our Country or our way of life.

A vote for Hillary is a vote for Socialism, Globalization and the shredding of the very fabric of these United States of America.

Make sure you vote this November.  Our very way of life is at stake.
