Down the Memory Hole

How can we possibly know the motive of the perpetrator of the Orlando Massacre?  It is a mystery to the President, the Attorney General, his whole administration, and their cheerleaders in the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media.  Forget that the killer called 911 and pledged allegiance to ISIS. This has been redacted from the government transcripts so it has been effectively dropped down the Memory Hole.  Forget that according to survivors he was shouting Allah Akbar as he shot his victims.  Forget that while he was in the midst of his killing spree he logged into Facebook and pledged his loyalty to ISIS and threatened more attacks on the civilized world.  How can we possibly know what his motive was?

If political correctness and the playbook of the Progressives stop us from accepting the evidence of reality which floods our vision we have become the object of the old saying, “There are none so blind as those who will not see.”

Our Dear Leader and his minions refuse to label our enemyIt did not start with them.  After 9-11 George II declared war on terror instead of declaring war on Radical Islamic Terrorists.  It made me wonder at the time why on December 8, 1941 we didn’t declare war on sneak attacks?  BHO goes on and on lecturing us that what we call something doesn’t mean anything.  If what we call our enemy doesn’t matter than why does the Obama regime insist on calling them ISIL instead of calling them ISIS as everyone else in the English speaking world does?

Instead of having enough respect for the victims, survivors, and their families to actually address who killed and wounded our fellow citizens or how to actually prevent such horrific incidents in the future the Progressives turned the whole Orlando terrorist attack into a platform for their own agenda of nullifying the Second Amendment.

Instead of focusing on the danger of radicalized Muslims who want to strike a blow for their Caliph let’s focus our sights instead on banning the AR-15 even though the shooter didn’t use an AR-15.  If as the President says more people die in bathtubs than they do in terrorist attacks why don’t we ban bathtubs?

How to explain these misconnects between reality and the relentless long march the Progressives have orchestrated from a free republic to central government leviathan.  From a nation of laws based upon a constitution carved in stone to a nation based on men with a living document written in the sand.   The Progressives have systematically used education, media, and the courts to indoctrinate, cajole, and hijack the people into accepting a truncated vision of the Constitution.  It was written to secure the rights of the people and to limit the power of the central government.  Just look at a few comments by our Founders and framers with regard to the Second Amendment: “What is the militia?  It is the whole people except for few public officials.” And “To disarm the people is the best and most efficient way to enslave them,” George Mason, Father of the Bill of Rights.  “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms … disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes … Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”  Thomas Jefferson’s Commonplace Book.

What did the early courts have to say: “The right of a citizen to keep and bear arms has justly been considered the palladium of the liberties of the republic, since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers, and will generally, even if they are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”  Joseph Story, U.S. Supreme Court Justice 1833.

From these monuments to freedom in a by-gone era our free republic has progressed or devolved into this centrally-planned politically correct social democratic republic sliding down the chute into the dust bin of History.  In politics perception is reality and as Lenin said, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”  Keeping this in mind we can look at a killer who adamantly and repeatedly tells us exactly why he committed his crimes and we shouldn’t be surprised when our leaders and their propaganda media arm tell us over and over there is no way we can know his motives.  Truth has fallen down the memory hole.

We are a conquered and occupied nation.  We just don’t know it yet.

So what can we do?

Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.

Obama Admin. Says Legal Gun Owners are a Threat, but ISIS is No Threat At All

gun-control-220x120

(NaturalNews) American gun owners can spot a gun-grabber a mile away, and they have known for several years now that their president is one of them. Time and again, Barack Obama has attempted to goad the country and Congress into backing stricter gun control laws that would do little to reduce mass shootings that are statistically rare to begin with,[PDF] according to a government study.

But statistics and facts and the truth about guns don’t matter to an ideologue like Obama; as Guns.news, a Natural News indy partner site, reported recently, Obama is likely to spend his final year in office pressing for more gun control laws that will weaken the Second Amendment and actually make Americans more vulnerable to criminals.

To Obama, American gun owners are a threat and menace to society – he must obviously think so, otherwise he wouldn’t continually prioritize the pursuit of more and more gun laws when the existing laws on the books are more than enough to restrict and govern Americans and others who voluntarily choose to obey them. No new law or even gun bans would do anything to stop bad people from obtaining a firearm and doing bad things with it.

But you know who Obama doesn’t really believe is a threat to the U.S.? Members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS. If he did, he wouldn’t support or implement a policy that welcomes them into the United States disguised as “refugees.”

In stumping for support of his policy – he has announced that, despite the ISIS-backed terrorist attack in Paris Nov. 13, in which 129 people were killed and hundreds more wounded, he was committed to accepting some 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country.

Importing terror while trying to disarm America
“We have very robust vetting procedures for those refugees. It involves our intelligence community, our national counterterrorism center, extensive interviews, vetting them against all the available information,” Deputy National Security Advisor to the President Ben Rhodes told Fox News recently. That’s not really true, since there is no reason to have Syrian citizens in U.S. government databases, making them all but impossible to vet.

But there is also this. Syria – and Syrians – are enemies of our lone trustworthy ally in the Middle East, Israel, having fought three wars against the Jewish state (1948, 1967 and 1973), which means that the Syrian government has always been hostile towards Israel’s principle benefactor, the United States. What sense does it make to import an ethnic group that was raised to hate you – because of your alliance with an archenemy and because of your “infidel” way of life?

How many are ‘poisonous’?
The Obama Administration doesn’t want you to know such things, however. What’s more, the White House only wants you to consider that these refugees are really just harmless people fleeing a war-torn country, and that they deserve a chance at a better life in America.

There are a number of things wrong with these assertions, aside from those already mentioned. One is that radical Syrian refugees have already been involved in terrorist attacks, both within the “caliphate” of ISIS and aboard. One who was involved in the Paris attacks had a passport from Greece.

Another is that, domestically, Obama plans to infiltrate Syrian refugees into the heart of the country, and he’s already moving some into Louisiana, where one Syrian male has already gone missing. What happens when some of these new arrivals become radicalized? What happens if they already are radicalized? ISIS promised to use the refugee “crisis” as a Trojan Horse of sorts, to infiltrate its operatives into Western countries.

There are several popular memes on social media that attempt to portray, in clever but realistic terms, the fallacy of Obama’s Syrian refugee policy. One features a bowl of grapes and asks, “If I served you 10 and told you that two of them were poisonous, would you eat any?” The connotation, of course, is that while most Syrians may be harmless, a few may not be – and how many American lives are we willing to sacrifice to find out?

Obama is apparently ready to run the experiment and – if he gets his way – he’ll conduct it with a lesser-armed American citizenry.

Chicago Crime Rate Dropping as Concealed Carry Permits Rise

by Onan Coca
Uh-oh, liberals. It seems like we have more facts and evidence that you aren’t going to like. I’m guessing you’ll start calling us mean names really soon.

People paying attention in Chicago are in absolute awe of an important trend that they’re witnessing this year. In 2014 there has been a stunning drop in crime and the only change in official policy that could possibly be affecting that change… a coinciding rise in concealed carry permits!

Since Illinois started granting concealed carry permits this year, the number of robberies that have led to arrests in Chicago has declined 20 percent from last year, according to police department statistics. Reports of burglary and motor vehicle theft are down 20 percent and 26 percent, respectively. In the first quarter, the city’s homicide rate was at a 56-year low.gunowner-300x243

“It isn’t any coincidence crime rates started to go down when concealed carry was permitted. Just the idea that the criminals don’t know who’s armed and who isn’t has a deterrence effect,” said Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association. “The police department hasn’t changed a single tactic — they haven’t announced a shift in policy or of course — and yet you have these incredible numbers.”

gunownerAs of July 29 the state had 83,183 applications for concealed carry and had issued 68,549 licenses. By the end of the year, Mr. Pearson estimates, 100,000 Illinois citizens will be packing.

Now, the Chicago Police Department says that the reason for the tremendous drop in crime has been “better police work,” which must say a lot about the police work pre-2014. We’re not buying it.

Liberal gun-grabbers almost always whine about a rise in gun crimes when gun laws are relaxed but the truth is over the last 30 years we’ve seen the exact opposite trend. Today, gun rights in America are the most protected they’ve been in almost 50 years and violent crime is down almost 40% since the Clinton Presidency when gun laws were at their most Draconian.

In Chicago more people have legal guns now than they have in decades… and the crime rate is plummeting!

A July study by the Crime Prevention Research Center found that 11.1 million Americans have permits to carry concealed weapons, a 147 percent increase from 4.5 million seven years ago. Meanwhile, homicide and other violent crime rates have dropped by 22 percent.

“There’s a lot of academic research that’s been done on this, and if you look at the peer-reviewed studies, the bottom line is a large majority find a benefit of concealed carry on crime rates — and, at worst, there’s no cost,” said John Lott Jr., president of the Crime Prevention Research Center based in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania. “You can deter criminals with longer prison sentences and penalties, but arming people with the right to defend themselves with a gun is also a deterrence.”

More legal guns means less crime. Criminals are cowards by nature, always feeding on the weak for a quick and easy score. If the weak become strong by arming themselves, criminals will look for new avenues of easy (and safe) income. Why do liberals insist on making people defenseless against violent criminals? It makes no sense…

New York In Shock As Gun Control Leads To 25 Murders In The Last 2 Days

New York In Shock As Gun Control Leads To 25 Murders In The Last 2 Days

AUTHOR Warner Todd Huston
JUNE 13, 2013 8:01PM PST

Like most Democrat-controlled, big cities, New York City has one of the most stringent gun-control schemes in America. But this heavy emphasis on banning guns has not stopped a recent rise in murders in the Big Apple.
Over a 48 hour period between June 11 to June 13 25 people were killed with firearms in New York. Victims were from all over the city. In fact, the only part of the city that didn’t experience a shooting over the 48-hour period was Staten Island!
Eight were shot in the Bronx, four in Queens, one in Manhattan, and a whopping twelve in Brooklyn. The fellow killed in Manhattan was shot during the day amongst a crowd of people.
But notice that New York’s “Safe Gun Act” hasn’t really done much to stop crimes committed with guns. It may have stopped law-abiding citizens from being able to respond to life-threatening attacks with their own guns, of course.
Due to the anti-gun laws, it is practically impossible for law-abiding citizens to get guns for themselves. But, oh, boy do the crooks have them. According to news reports 100 percent of this gun crime spree was perpetrated with guns held illegally in criminal hands.
Notice that hundreds in not thousands of crimes every year are stopped by legal gun owners. Take the woman in California that stopped a home invasion with her firearm. Or the Florida business owner who cornered and captured a crook in his store. Or the boy that used a gun to save his father’s life.

These are the life-saving events that New York’s Democrats will put an end to and murders will increase because of it.
With Democrats succeeding in banning guns we get idiotic and dangerous situations like the 9/11 operator that told a woman being raped to kindly ask her rapist to just leave.
The good news is, though, that this is still a drop in murder rates over last year. This is true across the country, actually. And every state (including New York) no have concealed carry in some form or fashion–except Illinois which is just about to put one in place. We have more guns than ever in the hands of law-abiding citizens and crime has dropped.

Biden mocks gun skeptics: ‘We’re going to swoop down with Special Forces folks and gather up every gun in America


During a gun control speech Tuesday at the White House, Vice President Biden mocked the “black helicopter crowd” for opposing the idea of universal background checks for Americans purchasing guns.

“Kinda scary man, the black helicopter crowd is really upset,” Biden said, criticizing the National Rifle Association for promoting a “misinformation campaign” on background checks.

Biden insisted that there would be no central registry for background checks allowing government to keep records on gun owners.

“No way that Uncle Sam can go find out whether you own a gun because we’re about to really take away all your rights and you’re not going to be able to defend yourself and we’re going to swoop down with Special Forces folks and gather up every gun in America,” Biden added mockingly. “It’s bizarre. But that’s what’s being sold out there.”

Maryland Teenage Girl Destroys Arguments For Gun Control

I’ve heard a number of conservatives give good arguments against all of the proposed gun control laws. One of those was Cuban immigrant Manuel Martinez who spoke to a state senate committee in Oregon. The best statement Martinez made was when he pointed a finger at liberal Democratic Senator Floyd Prozansky and told him:
“You people don’t know what freedom is because you never lost it. You haven’t been tortured. You haven’t been the assassinations. You haven’t been mothers begging for the life of their son not to be killed because the only reason they want is to be free. And they kill the mothers, and they kill the son.”
However, I think the best testimony I’ve heard to date given against gun control was delivered by 15 year old Sarah Merkle of Maryland. She spoke well, concise and paid out a number of reasons why the proposed gun control laws in Maryland were harmful and unconstitutional.

After the video of her testimony swept the internet, Merkle was interviewed by Gretchen Carlson on Fox and Friends. I was again impressed with the composure and maturity of this 15 year old girl. She readily defended her position without hesitation or stammering. Not only is she a formidable marksmen, but she appears to be a formidable debater on the issue of gun control as well.

Sadly, the members of the Maryland legislature failed to listen to Merkle’s testimony as they went ahead and passed the strict gun laws. The only chance that Sarah has of competing in her sport and winning a college scholarship would be for her to move out of Maryland to a more gun friendly state like Texas, Arizona or North Carolina.
In fact, I would love to see every conservative family move out of these liberally controlled states and move to states that appreciate their conservative patriotic values. As for me, you couldn’t pay me enough money to move to a state like Maryland, New York Connecticut or Colorado among others.

12 Republican Senators Support Rand Paul on Gun-Control Filibuster

rand.paul_370x278After last month’s filibuster of the Obama administration’s new drone policy, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has received a lot of attention from both libertarians and Republicans. With Senator Reid looking to introduce new gun legislation soon, Senator Paul isn’t afraid to use the same method to get his opinions out there. Late last month Senators Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz all sent a letter to the Senate Majority leader. The letter threatened to filibuster the new proposed bill that would expand background checks and crack down on interstate gun trading.

But on Monday Rand Paul and 12 other GOP Senators will send a follow up letter showing their support for a potential filibuster. According to Politico,

Reid may be able to break a filibuster with bipartisan support, which would obviate the need to do an end run around Paul’s group. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has said he won’t support a filibuster if Reid promises to allow for amendments on the floor.

In the letter due to be sent Monday, a carbon copy of the first missive, Paul and his expanded group of allies reiterate that they “intend to oppose any legislation that would infringe on the American people’s constitutional right to bear arms, or their ability to exercise this right without being subjected to government surveillance.”

The Gun Owners of America, a small group that has risen in influence because of its strict adherence to a pro-gun line, has pressured senators and the National Rifle Association to back Paul, Cruz and Lee.

“If, you are an NRA member, contact them,” GOA wrote in an action alert sent to its own members, some of whom are also in the NRA, on April 1. “Urge them to join with us in supporting the Paul-Cruz-Lee filibuster. That means they should tell senators to oppose the motion to proceed to any gun control vehicle, and to oppose cloture on the motion to proceed to any gun control vehicle.”

In addition to Paul, Lee, Cruz, Rubio and Moran, the Republican who have signed the second letter are Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, Richard Burr of North Carolina, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Mike Enzi of Wyoming, Jim Risch and Mike Crapo of Idaho, Dan Coats of Indiana and Pat Roberts of Kansas.

“We will oppose the motion to proceed on any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any additional gun restrictions,” they write.

Perhaps once Senator Reid sees that several of his co-workers disagree with this new proposed bill, he will put a stop to the new measure. With 13 senators now willing to stand up for Americans’ 2nd amendment rights in filibuster style, it is clear that we have elected officials who care about protecting our interests. Hopefully their dedication to the issue is a sign to their colleagues that the 2nd amendment is not one that can be ignored.
