The War Against the
Second Amendment
Has Only Just Begun

Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 3/11/2013 11:29:54 PM

In an interview with Jason Mattera which was conducted last month but is just now hitting the news, Democratic Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky admitted that the Democrats’ effort to ban “assault weapons” is “just the beginning.” In addition, Schakowsky says that she wants to ban all handguns, and thinks this can constitutionally be done, despite the Second Amendment. I think it is obvious that Schakowsky was only saying what a great many Democrats believe: In a closely related development, a New York judge has thrown out Mayor Bloomberg’s decree

They tried banning common shotguns in Colorado, and got caught. They also tried to put liability on gun owners and makers for all crimes committed with stolen guns. Those two attempts were abandoned (for now).
Still, there are four major intrusions into the 2nd Amendment that are likely to pass very soon.
One Colorado Dem was heard to say that the new legislation would do little to curb gun violence, which leads one to believe that it´s never been about gun violence, and all about CONTROL. The attacks will not cease. Your liberty is at stake. When is enough going to be enough?

The Dims must be feeling secure in their power as more and more of them are getting careless in keeping up the pretence of the day. Something tells me that true patriots will not comply. They can pass all the "laws" they want. If Obama and the Dims won´t follow the Constitution, citizens are not bound to follow their edicts. Go ahead make us criminals.

What difference, at this point, does it make?

Clearly, an unarmed citizenry would be less willing and much less able to resist the imposition of the "progressive" Socialist Utopia. Let´s admit what this is really all about.

Something must automatically blind people when they accept moderate or liberal doctrine. Trusting those put in charge of us is not an option with me. I support many leaders but do not trust them without verifying. Even our beloved Preacher told us not to trust him when he preached but to read the Bible for ourselves prayerfully and verify what he says. That is advice for those seeking wisdom..not for lazy kool ade drinking moderates or liberals. Too bad the fight for the constitution and our freedom is not alarming more people. Must be all the free stuff.

Surpeme Court asked
to decide on
three gun cases
WashingtonTimes, by David Sherfinski    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 2/19/2014 10:49:24 PM     Post Reply
The Supreme Court on Friday will consider whether to wade into a growing legal brawl over the scope of the Second Amendment and how far the Constitution goes in protecting Americans’ self-defense rights outside of their homes, with the justices deciding whether to take up three pending gun cases. Six years ago, in the landmark Heller case, the court established that the Constitution guarantees a personal right to bear arms, but states — and lower federal courts — have made different judgments about what that means. Now, in the key case, the National Rifle Association has asked the justices to

Army Senior Warrant Officer Russton B. Kramer, a 20-year Green Beret, has learned that if you want to improve your chances to survive, it’s best to personally make modifications to the Army’s primary rifle — the M4 carbine. Warrant Officer Kramer has been dropped into some of the most ferocious battles in the war on terrorism, from hunting Islamists in the mountains of northern Iraq to disrupting Taliban opium dealers in dusty southern Afghanistan. He was awarded the Silver Star for his bravery in Operation Viking Hammer to crush the terrorist group Ansar al-Islam in Iraq. The warrant officer said

‘We need the iPhone of

transform the gun industry?
Washington Post, by Michael S. Rosenwald    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 2/18/2014 10:15:52 PM     Post Reply
One of California’s largest firearm stores recently added a peculiar new gun to its shelves. It requires an accessory: a black waterproof watch. The watch’s primary purpose is not to provide accurate time, though it does. The watch makes the gun think. Electronic chips inside the gun and the watch communicate with each other. If the watch is within close reach of the gun, a light on the grip turns green. Fire away. No watch means no green light. The gun becomes a paperweight. A dream of gun-control advocates for decades, the Armatix iP1 is the country’s first smart gun.

The Department of Homeland Security wants a private company to provide a national license-plate tracking system that would give the agency access to vast amounts of information from commercial and law enforcement tag readers, according to a government proposal that does not specify what privacy safeguards would be put in place. The national license-plate recognition database service, which would draw data from readers that scan the tag of every vehicle crossing their paths, would help catch fugitive illegal immigrants, according to a DHS solicitation. But the database could easily contain more than 1 billion records and may be shared with

In violent turn, Ukraine

Deadly clashes between protesters and police in Kiev on Tuesday led to a fire-lit nighttime assault by Interior Ministry troops on the main protest encampment at Independence Square, in what may be a dramatic and irreversible turn in Ukraine’s months-long political crisis. After weeks of relative calm, trucks and tents burned, molotov cocktails smashed against police shields and banners illuminated by the flames whipped in the strong breeze. At least 20 people were reported killed in the latest flare-up of protests that began last fall after President Viktor Yanukovych rejected a trade deal with Europe and turned to Russia for

Student debt may hurt housing recovery
by hampering first-time buyers
Washington Post, by Dina ElBoghdady    Original Article

The growing student loan burden carried by millions of Americans threatens to undermine the housing recovery’s momentum by discouraging, or even blocking, a generation of potential buyers from purchasing their first homes. Recent improvements in the housing market have been fueled largely by investors who snapped up homes in the past few years. But that demand is waning as prices climb and mortgage rates rise. An analysis by the Mortgage Bankers Association found that loan applications for home purchases have slipped nearly 20 percent in the past four months compared with the same period a year earlier.

Congressional Republicans
are focused on calming
their divided ranks
Washington Post, by Robert Costa    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 2/17/2014 10:02:46 PM     Post Reply
After a tumultuous week of party infighting and leadership stumbles, congressional Republicans are focused on calming their divided ranks in the months ahead, mostly by touting proposals that have wide backing within the GOP and shelving any big-ticket legislation for the rest of the year. Comprehensive immigration reform, tax reform, tweaks to the federal health-care law — bipartisan deals on each are probably dead in the water for the rest of this Congress. “We don’t have 218 votes in the House for the big issues, so what else are we going to do?” said Rep. Devin Nunes (Calif.), an ally

Increasing Anti-deportation protests show

Immigrant rights activists, including some self-identified illegal immigrants, were arrested outside the White House on Monday as part of a protest against President Obama’s deportation policies, signaling that even as Republicans take blame for halting legalization legislation, Democrats face political peril, too. Mr. Obama was out of town, playing golf in California, so he wasn’t at the White House during the protests outside the North Lawn, on the sidewalk along Pennsylvania Avenue. With action on immigration stalled in Congress, attention is turning back to the administration. Activists say Mr. Obama needs to expand

Austin - Democrats fired Monday on Attorney General Greg Abbott´s decision to have Ted Nugent at campaign events, with some calling on the Republican candidate for governor to cancel the appearances. The pair is expected in Denton and Wichita Falls on Tuesday. Critics are showcasing incendiary comments the rocker and gun-rights advocate has made about President Barack Obama and women officeholders including Hillary Clinton, and his startling proposals for immigrants who come here illegally. “Ted Nugent disrespects a large number of Texans.

The hot lap at Daytona was set by the pace car. The latest quirky occurrence at the home of the Daytona 500 came Saturday night when there was a fire inside the pace car for the exhibition Sprint Unlimited. The smoke billowing from the car might have seemed out of place at any other track. At Daytona? It seemed more a matter of when the latest track mishap would happen, not if. After all, the 2010 Daytona 500 was interrupted for more than two hours because of a pothole in the track. Juan Pablo Montoya slammed into a jet dryer in

With three years remaining in the presidency of Barack Obama, the party he has led since mesmerizing members with his 2008 campaign has begun debating a post-Obama future. Though more united than Republicans, Democrats nevertheless face simmering tensions between the establishment and a newly energized populist wing, led by the unabashed liberalism of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and the fiery rhetoric of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. The schisms are as much stylistic as substantive. But however defined, they offer a challenge to the party’s next leader, whether former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden

What Happened to the Antiwar Movement?
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 2/15/2014 8:20:09 PM     Post Reply
Barack Obama owes his presidency largely to the Iraq war. It was Obama’s purity on the war–he opposed it when Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and others were voting for it–that endeared him to the Democratic Party’s base. Indeed, one could say that the contemporary American Left owes its vigor, if not its existence, to the Iraq war. Those who lived through the years from 2003 to 2008 won’t forget it–the online hysteria, the demonstrations, the wild charges, the assassination fantasies, the calls for impeachment. Remember when antiwar demonstrations could bring out enough people to fill the streets? This was Washington,

He says that includes making sure that the military doesn´t step into a situation that civilians should resolve. Obama says the U.S. condemns the violence in the strongest terms.

The Clarion Project has unearthed Federal Bureau of Investigations documents detailing a 22-site network of terrorist training villages sprawled across the United States. According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about these facilities for about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. MOA stands for Muslims of the Americas, which is linked to radical Pakistani Muslim cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani. The FBI documents that Clarion has obtained show that the group is headquartered in the well known “Islamberg”

Geraldo Rivera got remarkably candid in a conversation with The Blaze’s Will Cain about his desire not to outlive his own fame. He even admitted that part of the reason he’s been to dangerous places like Libya and Iraq is because he’s “been looking to get killed in action for years.” Rivera said he doesn’t want to be one of those guys who, when they die, everyone will point out how great they used to be, and that’s why he stays engaged. And, in addition to that, he likes having a little bit of danger in his life: “I want to die with

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 17, 2014 – President Barack Obama has elevated the right to have sex with a member of the same sex to the level of universal “fundamental freedoms” in a new presidential statement criticizing Uganda. But critics say his promotion of homosexuality in a continent that overwhelmingly opposes that behavior amounts to a form of liberal “cultural imperialism.” Obama wrote on Sunday that he opposed a proposed bill in Uganda that would criminalize same-sex “marriages” and impose life imprisonment for repeated homosexual acts, among other provisions, because “as a country and a people, the United States has consistently

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz says many things that need to be said and says them well. Moreover, some of these things are what many, if not most, Americans believe wholeheartedly. Yet we need to remember that the same was true of another freshman Senator, just a relatively few years ago, who parlayed his ability to say things that resonated with the voters into two terms in the White House. Who would disagree that if you want your doctor, you should be able to keep your doctor? Who would disagree with the idea of a more transparent administration in Washington, or

Foreign Policy: John Kerry calls global warming "the world´s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction." Has the secretary of state forgotten the world´s real WMDs? Or is he just off his medication? There´s a long list of Cabinet secretaries and senior aides to President Obama who have failed the nation so resoundingly they should be shown the door. But Secretary John Kerry, who dumped his military decorations in 1971 and was dumped by voters as a presidential candidate in 2004, should definitely be the first one out. In a pathetic attempt to distract from the Obama administration's foreign policy failures,

The Girl Scouts of the USA has sent threatening letters to at least two small pro-life groups that have been critical of Girl Scout collaborations with Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocacy groups. Since the beginning of the Girl Scout cookie boycott, exclusively announced at Breitbart News late last month, LifeNews has extensively reported on the connection between Planned Parenthood and the Girl Scouts. LifeNews editor Steve Ertelt announced Monday that he had received a letter threatening legal action. In it, Girl Scout executive Brian Crawford complained about “articles that outline alleged ties to Planned Parenthood” and that “GSUSA has

Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 by 2016 will help "people who just want to work hard," but it also will help those who want to "work less," White House economic adviser Gene Sperling told MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" on Wednesday. He argued that Americans support raising the minimum wage because it will lift "struggling" families out of poverty: "But they also know what it´s like to see a friend, a neighbor, where one spouse goes back to work, who would prefer maybe not to work. Maybe they´re working part-time just to supplement the family´s income. And they think, if that

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel (R-Ky.) are now in position to end the Tea Party’s death grip on the Republican Party’s political future. Last week, Boehner and McConnell faced down the Tea Party’s threat to cripple the government when they supported raising the nation’s debt ceiling. That move prevented GOP political suicide. If the nation’s credit rating, stocks and the recovery went down the sewer because of Republicans’ refusal to raise the debt ceiling, the GOP’s chances in the midterm elections would have been severely damaged. Having successfully defied the Tea Party on the debt ceiling, now

Over seven in 10 Obama voters, and 55 percent of Democrats, regret voting for President Obama´s reelection in 2012, according to a new Economist/YouGov.com poll. Conducted to test the media hype about a comeback by 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, the new poll found voters still uninspired by Romney, but also deeply dissatisfied with Obama who has so far failed to capitalize on his victory over 15 months ago. The poll asked those who voted for Obama´s reelection a simple question: “Do you regret voting for Barack Obama?” — Overall, 71 percent said yes, 26 percent no. — 80
