It may not come as surprising news to many of you that the United Nations doesn’t approve of our Second Amendment. Not one bit. And they very much hope to do something about it with help from some powerful American friends. Under the guise of a proposed global “Small Arms Treaty” premised to fight “terrorism”, “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates” you can be quite certain that an even more insidious threat is being targeted – our Constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms.
~~ via MoonBattery.com : Obama Resorting to United Nations to Attack Gun Rights
Aligning himself with a hostile power against the USA by signing this clearly unconstitutional treaty would dwarf the many other scandals for which Obama should be removed from office.
My attitude toward guns started to point in the right direction when I started reading less biased, more informative articles on the issue
1.“At Columbine High School, two students killed 13 people before ending the carnage themselves by committing suicide.” 2. “In 1997, a student at Pearl High School in Pearl, Miss., had already shot several people at his high school and was headed for the junior high school when assistant principal Joel Myrick retrieved a .45 pistol from his car and pointed it at the gunman’s head, ending the slaughter. Two dead. ”
The statistics speak for themselves. When a good guy has a gun, as in the latter tragedy, it’s easier to stop the bad guy and ultimately results in fewer casualties.
My change of heart toward firearms was solidified when I held a gun for the first time … once I picked up a revolver and eased back the trigger, one word kept running through my mind: empowered
Bam! There it is. That’s the core of the gun debate right there.
The empowerment of the individual, by a gun, against oppression.
The anti-gun voices are the voices of oppressors; the wannbee, would-be tyrants. The presence of the personal firearm in the tyrant-subject equation reduces the tyrant to a tyrunt.
Armed citizens can not be controlled, and when total unequivocal control is the goal there can be no allowance for self-defense – for an armed citizenry.
“They have let it slip by because of politics, and now we’ve taken all the correlation we had and dropped the ball because of risk (aversion) — and now the security in Libya is more fragile than ever,” one U.S. special operator told Fox News. The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirms that U.S. forces have tracked the alleged attackers since October but have since lost the trail of some of them, as no one up the chain of command would authorize them to capture or kill the targeted militia members.
» Outgoing IRS Chief: IRS Targeted Conservatives to ‘Be More Efficient’
One conservative activist, Drew Ryun, said his application for a media watchdog group called “Media Trackers” was delayed for more than 8 months. But when Ryan submitted a new application for the same group under a different name, “Greenhouse Solutions,” it was approved in three weeks, he said.
Efficiently denied the conservative, and efficiently approved the perceived leftist.
We are finding out new and interesting revelations about how our government operates every day, it seems. From an ever expanding IRS scandal to the Department of Justice’s fishing expedition at AP to the President of the United States telling us that he found out about all of this in the newspapers just like the rest of us, it seems that everywhere we look there is evidence of the Administration using the apparatus of government as a tool of political repression and widespread corruption.
There is now enough evidence to begin considering a RICO (Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization) case.
The current scandals are only the latest in a pattern of illegal conduct by our government. The threats are very real. Rights clearly protected in the Constitution have been violated time and again and it mainly those who oppose the administration who are affected
Miller told Lerner to plant a question. She did, then pretended she didn’t. When that story fell apart, Miller admitted that it had taken place, but danced around questions about who ordered it. When that jig was up, he raised his hand for blame. Both he and his predecessor publicly denied that any targeting was happening, then Miller withheld the truth after he was looped in, even after members of Congress followed-up with additional inquiries. Lerner did the same. But for some reason they expect us to trust them when they tell us there was no partisan motive here, even though they’ve conceded that no liberal or progressive groups were targeted inappropriately.
Much of the Fourth Estate shrugged when the Obama administration attacked Fox News, writes Kirsten Powers. But now it’s coming for them, too.
Where were the media when all this began happening? With a few exceptions, they were acting as quiet enablers.
It’s instructive to go back to the dawn of Hope and Change. It was 2009, and the new administration decided it was appropriate to use the prestige of the White House to viciously attack a news organization—Fox News—and the journalists who work there. Remember, President Obama had barely been in office and had enjoyed the most laudatory press of any new president in modern history. Yet even one outlet that allowed dissent or criticism of the president was one too many. This should have been a red flag to everyone, regardless of what they thought of Fox News. The math was simple: if the administration would abuse its power to try and intimidate one media outlet, what made anyone think they weren’t next?
“Educating on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to be a political act”
What’s the word for lying through one’s teeth while looking you directly in the eye – knowing he’s lying – knowing that you know he’s lying … where everyone knows what’s being said is exactly 180.00000 degrees offset from the truth?
There’s words for that and it ain’t “providing erroneous information”
As leftist demagogues attempt to capitalize on the carnage in Oklahoma by shrieking that tornados are caused by global warming, let’s take a look back at what statist liars were screeching a generation ago …
A British soldier has been butchered on a busy London street by two Islamist terrorists …
the men attempted to behead the soldier, hacking at him like a “piece of meat” in front of dozens of witnesses …
Witnesses said that the men used a car to run over the soldier just yards from the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, south-east London, before setting about him with knives and a meat cleaver as if they were “trying to remove organs”. One unconfirmed report suggested that he had been beheaded.
As they attacked the soldier, one of the men shouted “Allahu akbar” …
Five years ago, the sight of Muslim terrorists beheading British soldiers was a horror that could happen in Afghanistan or Iraq. Now it has happened in broad daylight in the capital of the United Kingdom.
In a decade, 600,000 white Londoners have fled the city. Those are the sorts of numbers you would expect from the Syrian civil war. Their place has been taken by the million Muslims occupying the city.
Muslim fighters have torn Somalia apart. And importing 200,000 of them into the United Kingdom is beginning to have the same effect. There are an estimated 70,000 Somalis in Greater London. That makes London the 12th largest city in Somalia.
This is a culture of violence.
Islam sanctifies that culture of violence. It takes tribal killings and endows them with the status of a religious duty.
What is so appealing about the Islamists and their ideology, that the left is willing to go to such horrifying lengths to champion their cause. The answer may lie in the liberal view of religion as a tool of social change. The theology behind this goes by many names in different denominations and religions, from Liberation Theology to Prophetic Justice to Tikkun Olam, the common denominator is that they hijack religion to serve as a vehicle for social justice.
Seen from that angle, it is not surprising why the Islamist agenda would appeal to liberals. It is after all also religion used as a tool of social change. Islamist groups are revolutionary, they want to overthrow the existing order in order to build a perfect society as defined by Sharia law. They operate social services centers for their followers and claim to be fighting for justice. But what liberals fail to understand is that while for them religion is a means, to the Islamists, religion is an end. Both liberals and Islamists equate religion with social justice. But for liberals, social justice is equivalent to religion, for Islamists religion is equivalent to social justice. While liberals talk about religion in order to bring about what they believe is a better society, Islamists talk about a better society in order to impose their religion on all Muslims and non-Muslims alike. If liberals were able to understand this, they might wake up long enough to realize the “deal with the devil” they had made.
This is what liberal governments are deliberately importing to displace the native population of Western countries. This is what they side with against the dying remnants of civilization.
Proclaimed one of the savages:
“We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you.”
The unspoken response: We swear by almighty political correctness that we will never stop sniveling and crawling and apologizing to you for existing.
The two reasons not to sic the IRS on your enemies are decency and the law. Is there anything in Obama’s career, including his treatment of fellow Democrats, to suggest that he cares for either one?
There is a limit to what any political movement can do out of greed or personal vendettas in a democracy, but there is no limit to what it can do when it combines these with a political ideology whose ends justify all means. There is nothing that it will not do because it is unconcerned with the long term consequences of its actions, only with the short term results. It has no long term investment in the existing system which it intends to destroy.
