What is the Political Goal of the Present U.S. Administration?


Many Conservatives, Republican, Conservative Christians, and other moral citizens can not understand the mindset of the present U.S. administration. Obama and his appointees are secular progressives, who have been trained in our colleges that America has "lost its way" and must be changed. Remember, "change" was the war cry of Obama and many of the Democrats in his administration and in congress.

Some psychiatrists have labeled the progressive ideology as a “religion,” whose adherents are totally blind to any other set of beliefs. This is why they are against Christianity, conservatism, & moralism, which they are trying to eliminate from the public sector as it shines light on their “religion.” Is it any wonder they are the ones behind the false "separation of state and church" doctrine.

As a much higher percentage of Republicans support the latter, they had began in the 80s with the establishment of Acorn and a plethora of other leftist organisms---which are intertwined as Glenn Beck continually points out---to eventually exterminate Republicanism out of existence, which they have been trying through liberal education, massive voter fraud, lies, deceit, etc. This they arrogantly think they have now done with the presidency and both houses of congress in the Democrat pasture. This explains why they are now so bold in their attempt to replace capitalism with marxism. Make no mistake. Obama and most of his appointees are former adherents of far leftist ideologies. Socialism leading to a one world government is their ultimate goal.

It is important that the blogosphere, one of the most powerful tools for revealing the truth, must never be destroyed, as some are trying to figure out how to do so. As many of us who strongly believe in and fiercely support the Second Amendment, believe they must first destroy the right of citizens to own and use personal weapons. The two go together!.

We must be vigilant and cry aloud when we see danger coming. "But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand" (Eze 33:6). There is a burden upon those who can see the danger coming; we must warn others or we will be as guilty as the perpetrators in the coming catastrophe. See the warning former President Reagan had to say in my other blog: Reagan Warning.

A History Lesson on Guns & Gun Confiscation

History Lesson on Guns

from Glenn Gohr Website.

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million ‘educated’ people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.

It has now been just over 12 months [*Actually now it has been over 10 years since that September 1997.] since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.

The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent
Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!

It will never happen here? I bet the Aussies said that too!

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

You won’t see this data on the U.S. evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind him of this history lesson.

With Guns………..We Are “Citizens”
Without Them……..We Are “Subjects”

During W.W.II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

Note: Admiral [Isoroku] Yamamoto who crafted the attack on Peal Harbor had attended Harvard University (1919-1921) and was Naval Attaché to the U. S. (1925-28). Most of our Navy was destroyed at Pearl Harbor & our Army had been deprived of funding & was ill prepared to defend the country. It was reported that when asked why Japan did not follow up the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion of the U.S. Mainland, his reply was that he had lived in the U.S. & knew that almost all households had guns.

If you value your freedom, Please spread this anti-gun control message to all your friends.

N Y Shop Owner Protects Self & Employee with Shotgun

Originally posted Friday, August 14, 2009, by The Unreligious Right blog.
The Second Amendment in Action

Four criminals picked the wrong Harlem shop to rob. As they tried to put plastic cuffs on two employees, beating one who resisted, 72-year old Charles Augusto Jr grabbed his shotgun. He killed one of attackers and mortally wounded the second. The other two were also hit and fled bleeding. Both were found by police and arrested. Augusto, obviously acting in self-defense, was not charged.

Had Mr. Augusto relied solely on the police for protection, rather than arming himself, at best he and his employees would have been robbed and possibly beaten. At worst he'd be lying dead, after the criminals decided it might be better not to leave witnesses. Fortunately he didn't have to find out what might have happened.

In New York City, one must have a permit to own a shotgun. The fees required to obtain a permit are prohibitive to the poor and would prevent them from owning a shotgun for defense:
The application fee is $140.00. The fingerprint fee is $94.25 for fingerprints done on the Livescan machine. If you require inked prints, the fee is $105.25. You may pay the fees with a credit card or two POSTAL MONEY ORDERS, BANK TELLER’S CHECKS OR CERTIFIED CHECKS. Cash is not accepted. Please make your money orders or checks payable to the “New York City Police Department.” No personal checks will be accepted. See all NYPD Requirements here.

These requirements literally restrict the rights of many citizens of New York City their rights under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Police Assume Unconstitutional Power to Take Away Your Guns After An Emergency

Unconstitutional Gun Confiscation After Katrina
NRA: The Untold Story of Gun Confiscation After Katrina

by NRAVideos

The video you will see is horrifying. The crimes committed against law-abiding gun owners are beyond comprehension. The arrogance of anti-gun politicians and government officials and their hate of freedom will churn your stomach.

The law is the law, the Constitution is the Constitution. If ONE local mayor or police chief can decide what the Second Amendment means, it opens the door to tyranny—where ANY mayor or police chief can say what the Second Amendment means.

You’ve seen this brand of abuse of freedom in the history books—in the pages about days of gun confiscations leading to the terror of Stalin, Mao and Hitler. But you’d never in a million years think it could happen in America. Well, it can and it did. And it will happen again unless we take action today.

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, Police Superintendent P. Eddie Compass unleashed a wave of confiscations with these chilling words:

“No one will be able to be armed. We will take all weapons. Only law enforcement will be allowed to have guns.”

Thousands of firearms were then confiscated from law-abiding gun owners. The police gave no paperwork or receipts for those guns. They just stormed in and seized them. Read Story and view video here.

This is the last time this should happen. We must make sure it does not happen again.

The Obama Administration Blame Game


First, it was Bush administration that left a large deficit (which the Democrats tripled), then it was the Republicans. They are at fault that the president and his Democrat congress are having trouble selling the Health Care Program. The Republicans were not being "bi-partisan," in spite of the fact they were squeezed out of the process.

Next, it was the "protesters" at the various town hall meetings, conducted by mostly Democrat Senators and Congress Members, who have questioned the lack of knowledge of their elected representatives. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid labeled them as a "Mob," "Nazis," "Un-American," etc. The American citizens, exercising their democratic option at voicing their opinions at town hall meetings are at fault for the president's public option health care package not being accepted.

Also, the Republicans were again blamed, this time for "organizing" the opposition at the town hall meetings.

Then, it was the insurance companies that were to blame. This was the new object of blame at President Obama's town hall meeting yesterday (August 14), in Montana.

Could the blame really lie at the administration's trying to jam a so-called health care package down the throats of a majority of American citizens who do not want to turn control of their personal relationship with our doctors over to the government? Could it be most U.S. citizens recognize that the Democrat cabal wants to totally control every aspect of our lives? After all, we've seen them take over the banks, the U.S. auto industry, Insurance companies, and now doctor's offices and hospitals. And that they clearly want to replace our capitalism with Socialism, and even Marxism?

Yes, it could be! And the backlash is on the way.

Democrats Call Town Hall Objectors "Part of the Mob"


I just watched an interview between Neil Cavuto and a guest, California Congressman, Brad Sherman. I could not believe what I saw. Sherman played the Democrat party line that the Citizens attending various Town Hall meetings were thugs and members of a "Mob."

I heard similar comments from Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It would seem like they have blinders on or that they don't believe anything that happens outside of the halls of congress. They no longer listen to those that elected them.

However, this may be music to my ears. If they keep on ignoring a majority of citizens, who according to recent polls, are against the government's present health care package, they will completely turn off the voters.

If the Republican Party succeeds in running genuine conservatives against the liberal Democrats in November 2010, they have a good chance of taking back the house and maybe the senate.

If the Republicans do not take control from the Democrats, we will all be in serious trouble, as the present national governing cabal is the most corrupt we have ever seen in the United States of America. May God help us all.

Administration support for a dangerous international treaty shows its disdain for the Constitution and America’s law-abiding gun owners.

America's 1st Freedom. August 2009

By Dave Kopel

The Obama administration’s offensive against the Second Amendment has begun.

As was predicted, the strategy uses international law to create a foundation for repressive and extreme gun control. The mechanism is an international treaty, the “Inter-American Convention against the Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms, Ammunition, Explosives and Other Related Materials.”

If the plan succeeds, police sales of confiscated firearms would be prohibited, and anyone who reloads ammunition at home would need a federal license. In addition, the treaty would create an international law requirement that almost every American firearm owner be licensed as if he were a manufacturer. Read rest of article here.

Zogby/O'Leary Poll Reveals Majority of Voters Will Oppose Senators Who Vote to Confirm an Anti-Second Amendment Supreme Court Nominee

Strong Majority of Independents, Democrats and Obama Voters Support the Right to Carry a Firearm

(The O'Leary Report from the PR Web)

Washington, D.C. (Vocus/PRWEB ) August 3, 2009 -- Next week the full U.S. Senate will vote on whether or not to confirm President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor. Many analysts are predicting a mostly party-line vote, however, a recent poll conducted by Zogby International and The O'Leary Report may give Senators from both parties some pause. (The poll was conducted July 21-24, surveyed 4,470 voters, and has a margin-of-error of plus-or-minus 1.5 percentage points.)
Zogby/O'Leary asked voters:

"Would you support or oppose a U.S. Senator who voted to confirm a Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court who does not believe in the right to keep and bear arms and the right to self-defense?"

Fifty-two percent of American voters would oppose the re-election of any Senator who votes to confirm a Supreme Court nominee who does not believe in the right to keep and bear arms. Only 26 percent of voters would support such a Senator.

Among Independent voters, 57 percent would oppose such a Senator, and only 17 percent would support. Forty-nine percent of young voters (age 18-29) would oppose a Senator who votes to confirm a nominee who does not believe Second Amendment rights apply to all Americans, and just 31 percent would support such a Senator...

Do We Have What It Takes To Take Our Country Back From Those Currently Destroying It?


2009 handgun sales have increased in some states from 15 to 25% over last year. Several reasons are given by various experts and commentators for this phenomena. Many fear the Obama administration may limit the legal use of handguns for personal protection. Others fear the deteriorating economy will bring about food riots and other civil disturbances.

And for good reason. Since the beginning of the twentieth century, secular progressives who have wormed their way into the unions, city commissions, state governments, and into the Congress of the United States have begun controlling the direction of government away from federalism and state’s rights to a stronger federal government.

“The Seventeenth Amendment (Amendment XVII) to the United States Constitution was passed by the Senate on June 12, 1911, the House of Representatives on May 13, 1912, and ratified by the states on April 8, 1913. The amendment supersedes Article I, § 3, Clauses 1 and 2 of the Constitution, transferring Senator selection from each state's legislature to popular election by the people of each state” Wikipedia.

This was a blow to state’s rights as it took from the states, which according to the Constitution at its inception, permitted the states to be directly represented by their senators. Transferring the election of senators from state legislatures to the people have removed the state’s direct senatorial representatives and moved them into being more loyal to their parties and special interest groups than to the states they represent. This allows for a stronger central government.

Schools taken over by progressive controlled NEA, and the liberal AFT - American Federation of Teachers, which has more than one million members nationwide, and has grown into a trade union representing workers in education, health care, and public service. They control the writing of textbooks which teach children education institutions, not parents, are their guide. They discourage patriotism, conservatism, and creationism. They have succeeded in mentally kidnapping children from their more conservative parents. These now grown up children steeped in progressive philosophy elected our present administration.

Those wanting to take back our country need to roll up their sleeves, as it may be an up hill battle. Because, fighting you will be all of the progressive special interest groups, i.e., Planned Parenthood, Naral, anti-second amendment supporters, gay rights supporters, unions, liberal educators, liberal members of congress, and those currently running the Washington train, the pro-abortion cabal, including all of Obama appointees.

Are we up to the task? Are we willing to pressure our state legislatures to enforce the Tenth Amendment supporting state sovereignty? To vote to repeal the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Amendments? To do away with the Federal Reserve System and to return the control of our money to congress? Can we ask our state legislators to grant to all state residents to carry a concealed weapon without a permit? You can not protect yourself if your handgun is at home locked in a safe with a trigger guard.

Those now in power mean to control every aspect of our lives and they will not willingly give up power. But let’s make up our minds to do what is necessary to take our country back. The alternative is a very bleak future for our children and grandchildren.

(I got this by email and thought it appropriate and timely to post--Rick)

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them..
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does.
You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason.. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red ..
If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ , it's because they want them in IRAQ
If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have the power.
They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses. Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees...
We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!
