I Will Not Be Intimidated
American Thinker, by Steve McCann

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 1/8/2013 11:12:56 AM

As a young boy I was shot by a man whose clear intent was to kill me as I had deliberately, by throwing broken bricks at him, interrupted his attempt to rape a young teen-aged girl, allowing her to escape. To this day I can still see the evil in his face and the sun glistening off the barrel of the pistol he aimed in my direction.(snip) According to the current incarnation of the American left, who traffic constantly in victimhood and noble intentions, I should be in the vanguard of the mandatory gun control and confiscation movement.

I think our only hope is to call and write those we elected begging them not to bargain away our 2nd Amendment rights! The left always get what they want by coming out with some outrageous legislation, then settling for less. Nevertheless, they get something in the " negotiation" and we lose our rights!

A large part of the current Democratic obsession with gun control is that it distracts from the horrible mess they have made of our economic, domestic, health care and foreign policies. That they can spin it as "we love children, Republicans love guns more than children" is just icing on the cake for them.

The one thing the Democrats do do well is relentlessly keep the Republicans on the defensive. It works politically. For the country, not so much.

To hell with it.

Call the muster and let the revolution begin. I have bleed for my country before and am willing to do it again. I will not surrender to the liberal scum and cowards of Washington. You want my guns bring a swat team and body bags.
We will see the cowards running for protection of the socialist that still believe in guns.

Please just keep repeating the line our VP Joe Biteme uttered in the campaign of ´08 that "If Obama comes after my Beretta, he will have a problem."
Keep repeating this line again and again.
This is who they are--they will still have their Berettas while confiscating ours--NOPE!

2 things lie between the Progressives and their ultimate goal of a socialist state in control of every element of our lives: awake/aware citizens and the US Constitutional protections of our individual liberties. Talk radio and the internet have so far kept alive the resistance as the MSM, the schools, and even the ACLU have been co-opted by the left. And Progressives are hard at work to convince us to sacrifice our individual liberty. They have lost ground on the gun front over the last decade but are still determined.

Imagine thousands of Americans sent overseas to fight and and risk death, for an outwardly purposeless war, without ever winning. The lucky ones that return alive are then told, after fighting for their country, that now they are not worthy of owning their own guns Imagine this vast group of retired service, add in police, sheriffs, and throw in millions of responsible, licensed hunters, adding champion marksmen and women. Imagine all these wonderful leadership people being ordered by the likes of Feinstein, Bloomberg, Piers Morgan, Harry Reid, George Clooney communists, that this vast array of accomplished responsible Americans can no longer own their own personal, private weapons. It´s Obama driven, Hitlerian, Stalinist, Fidel Castro madness, that´s what it is, total insanity to even think of disarming all those exceptional people above, and don´t ever forget the additional untold millions more of private people who keep this country safe without any grand display. (In fact, their heroism is never allowed on the Diane Sawyer media.) We have a band of totalitarian communist driven terrorists just waiting for the next tragedy to take the opportunity to bring total tyranny to America. We know the citizen disarmed places like Washington DC and New York ity are the most dangerous, and the licensed to carry cities and states are the safest places to live. Our leaders with armed body guards, our filmmakers making vilolent movies, but preaching dis arming to that same movie goer, are giant hypocrites, thieves and they’re all self contradicting, crazy as loons. The main reason there is so much anti gun insanity today, is that the Diane Sawyer media is a tool of totalitarianism, communist driven, totally destructive to individualism

I just heard Gabby Giffords and her husband coming out for gun control! They are saying "we don´t want to take your guns, we just want some sensible laws." People wake up! Call/write your Congresscritters. This is how they intend to take our rights! A bite at a time that seems reasonable and with which our Senators and Congrespersons will think they must compromise.

Beautiful affirmation of intent to never be intimidated out of God granted freedoms as recognized in the constitution. Many of us feel exactly the same way. Unfortunately a large portion of the population are not even aware of those freedoms and are willing to trade them away for stuff. Stuff obtained by violating the property rights (one of those freedoms) of the people who have produced the stuff. That´s tyranny though very few recognize it as such.

No, you make the suggestions. You´ve been on this forum since at least Newtown telling us we need to give ground. That newlaws are necessay. Please propose a new law or regulation that will allow us to identify and interdict the severely mentally ill witohut steping on the rights of law abiding, sane citizens. Difficulty level: must be constitutional and on, I won´t acquiesce to a mental health background check just to buy a gun. Now will I agree to repeated checks while I own the gun. That´s too much control in the hands of the state.

Poster #13:
Take a look at ATF form 4473. It must be filled out for any over the counter firearm transfer. It is also becoming necessary at gun shows. However, it is not necessary to show valid photo ID, wait while I do an "instant check" records verification with state law enforcement, or attest to the state of your "mental health" or use of "illegal drugs" as long as you just murder your mother, steal her firearms, and go kill 26 unarmed human beings like adam lanza...

The democrat socialist party has labored long and hard to remove God from our schools and public square and make right and wrong (sometimes referred to as morality) "relative". Then some evil, Godless, amoral murderer takes the lives of 26 innocents and they are surprised? They got exactly what they have been working for. And their proposed solution? Take away access to firearms and accessories by law abiding citizens of course...

I will NOT be intimidated!

Quite an essay.

I particularly liked this line FTA:

"Those that self-identify as progressives, leftists, socialists or Marxists, have one overwhelming trait in common: they are narcissists who believe they are pre-ordained to rule the masses too ignorant to govern themselves."

Sorry # 13--you are the sucker these laws are intended to target! There are enough laws on the books now to "save" us from the incidents. The laws are not enforced. And when the guns are gone, folks who want to do this kind of thing will use knives, bats or whatever. Do you know the worst incident of school violence was in the 20´s (I think), where 30+ children were killed/injured. With a knife.

Here´s one suggestion #13, have the relatives of these crazies not take them to a gun range and show them what to do. Also, don´t have guns laying around so the crazies in your family can get them. I fault the relatives of these nuts, they know they are twisted.

I will not give up my guns because some families out there keep coddling their freak relations.

I think the money shot - our bumper sticker slogan should be

"Gun owners and the US Constitution should not have to pay for the failed policies of Democrats"

That is clear and cuts through all the BS about original intent of the constitution and places the reason we are even talking about this is because people are not safe as a result of Democrat stupidity.

Here´s an option #13: Re-open the mental institutions that the liberals closed many years ago on the premise that the patients would get mentally healthy by being forced to live in presumably mentally healthful society. Newtown happened, Jared Loughner happened, on and on. The list is getting longer.

The figure, #28, is that guns are used almost ten times for self-defense for every one time a gun is used in a crime.

Another suggestion, #13, is for you to ask the media why they won´t mention the antidepressants these shooters are on (Adam Lanza was on two). Covering many years: Of the most recent 30 shooting incidents that hit the national news, 27 were on mood-altering, prescribed medications. Of possible interest: Of every seven drivers sharing the road with you today, one is on prescribed medications that affect driver reaction time. The worst slow reaction times are suffered by marijuana users.

Perhaps we should look at the large array of drugs being prescribed by our mental health professionals which have side-effects that are predictive and involved in practically every mass killing in the past several decades.

Might put too much strain on the legal drug pushers in this multi-billion dollar industry.

I´m demanding they cease such action or suffer the consequences. Americans will not give up their guns.

Guns would not be nearly so much a problem if ATF was not the largest supplier of guns to criminals. Does "Fast and Furious" ring a bell? If ATF spent less time taking guns from honest citizens while giving them to criminals, we would have less gun violence. The violence is due to the criminals, not the guns. I have yet to see a gun jump up and shoot somebody on its own.

Lost in the liberal prattle and federal superior position is the fact that 30 states have GOP Governors who control the backbone of the US Military ---- The States national guards. These forces loaned to the federal military can be recalled to protect their state by said Governors.
Does anyone really believe our children serving us in the US Military would turn their weapons on their own families?
The Soviet rulers quickly learned their military would not?

#13, you are concerned about a relatively few people (yes, including children) killed by crazies with guns. Imagine a country where the government and their henchmen made up of black panthers, union goons, nazis, unemployed students and other assorted storm troopers have all the guns. Can you estimate the number of innocent, violent deaths that will occur in such a scenario? I am willing to take my chances with having too many guns in circulation if it means my freedom. You can look out through the razor wire fence at the world if you want to, I´m going to live as a proud free man, whatever it takes.

The biggest mistake anyone can make is believing that any of thee gun control efforts are about "safety." Our repeat multi-thread deluded poster is one of them. BS. The government (all levels) couldn´t care less. It´s about control and eventual tyranny, as it always has been throughout history. And there can be no "common ground."

Labor Fascism in Chattanooga
American Thinker, by Mathew Vadum    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/18/2014 9:08:36 AM     Post Reply
As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters. A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

Last week we witnessed repeated efforts by Democrats to polarize the country along racial lines. Eric Holder, speaking at Al Sharpton´s conference, implied that he and the President are being treated harshly because they are black. (snip) The Republican base that Steve Israel says is animated by racism, nominated me -- an American of African descent and a great grandson of slaves -- for Lt. Governor of Virginia. They embraced me warmly, treated me respectfully and supported me enthusiastically. The liberal media on the other hand set out to destroy me. My white Democrat opponent was even caught on camera

Harry Reid’s jihad against the Koch Brothers has already yielded a hilarious video compilation of his 134 mentions of their name. But now with new information, his Koch addiction can become a potent tool in the hands of Republicans. Call it karma, if you like, but the former boxer now leading the Senate majority has left himself wide open. It turns out that Koch Industries employees and PACs have donated to quite a large number of Congressional Democrats.(snip) The ads practically write themselves: Mary Landrieu’s Majority Leader says the Koch Brothers are un-American. [video clip]. So why did Mary accept

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

The internal contradictions of the progressive alliance that dominates San Francisco have erupted into violence, and there is every sign it will continue. Conservatives have an opportunity if we are clever. (snip)I had not set foot on Hayes Street for at least a couple of decades when I went there last week. I was utterly shocked by the transformation, and more than that, by the hostility of some of the people I was with toward the newcomers.

The Beat Goes On:
Opposing Obama Is Racist

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism. For the first time in U.S. history, are Americans required to submit to their president's agenda or suffer the mainstream media and Democratic party branding an R on

Justice Stevens thinks he knows
how to ´fix´ the Second Amendment

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

Two of the biggest and best-connected lobbyists in Washington, DC are divorcing each other, and in the process they are placing on the public record the amazing wealth that can be generated by helping rent-seeking powerful interests shape the laws and regulations that separate Americans into winners and losers as the state confiscates a fifth of our GDP and regulates much of the rest. Matthew Continetti chronicles the divorce of Tony and Heather Podesta in the Free Beacon, and it is arresting reading. If the name Podesta rings a bell, that is because Tony’s kid brother John is a former White

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
