Bret Stephens & Second Amendment – Fundamentally Wrong | National Review

Regardless of what the screeching progressive left tells you, you need to understand ONE thing about our 2nd Amendment rights. The 2nd Amendment was NOT put in place because of hunting, and the argument that the founding fathers couldn’t foresee AR-15s and AK-47s and didn’t intend people to have military arms is a strawman because ALL weapons at the time were military weapons.

The 2nd Amendment was put in place primarily to serve as the last line of defense against a tyrannical government. Do I need to repeat that for you? Let it sink in for a moment.

The British kept trying to confiscate colonists’ weapons so they couldn’t resist the king. A defenseless populace could not resist the oppression of the government. After winning the war, the founders were determined NEVER to allow that to be the case in America again, which is why they codified their hard-earned knowledge in the 2nd Amendment.

So, as politicians begin talking about gun control again, limiting your rights to keep and bear arms, and as the democrats are now finally OPENLY discussing confiscating your weapons, you are seeing the 21st century manifestation of the King of England and the British Parliament here on American shores.

The only difference between the 1700s and now is that the oppressors are on THIS side of the ocean.



Bret Stephens is fundamentally wrong about gun rights …

Secession: A RIGHT of the People

This article was from 2012 when many Oklahomans and others began seriously considering secession. The so-called “experts” all poo-pooed the idea saying it couldn’t be done. Here are a few examples.

“It’s ridiculous, the states cannot secede. We saw that in 1865. Six hundred something thousand men lost their lives to prove that the union is indissoluble. It can’t be done,” Historian Bob Shalhope said.

“It has got to be the federal government or congress saying it’s okay, agreeing to it, but you know that is slim to none,” Political Scientist Michael Hirlinger said.

“It’s empty talk and rhetoric, nothing is going to come of it. It lets them blow off their emotions and blow off steam,” Shalhope said.

“The power of secession is not a power reserved to the state. It’s not worth discussing,” Shalhope said.

That last one is pretty rich. This pompous ass blows off the anger rising in America against the federal government by saying that secession isn’t a power reserved to the states. Hmmmm. This idiot doesn’t seem to realize that all the things the federal government is doing that we are pissed about are NOT powers reserved to the FEDERAL government.

So, let me get this straight. Just because secession isn’t written into the Constitution, when the federal government becomes tyrannical and exceeds its authority, we’re supposed to just sit back and take it?

No.

Perhaps you remember when a group of colonies were being oppressed by a tyrannical king. Did the colonies have the power delegated by King George to secede? Nope. But they RIGHTLY did it anyway. Perhaps I should remind these simpletons of the words penned by our founding fathers in our Declaration of Independence.

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

The Constitution is a CONTRACT between the states and the federal government. The government has violated the terms of that contract, thus rendering that contract null and void. We have EVERY RIGHT to secede, and on our current path it is not only our right, but our duty if we want to preserve any shred of our liberty for ourselves and our children.

Is the Bundy Ranch the ‘Lexington Common’ of the 2nd American Revolution?

The federal government has strayed so far from its Constitutional reservation that it doesn’t remember what it was founded for, and what its limits are. They are taxing away over half of our income, taking our land, and dictating not only what we can’t buy, but what we MUST buy. It is out of control, and likely beyond repair. To add insult to injury, you have some in local and state government who either don’t see, or actually support the overreaches of the federal government.

For example, you have this county commissioner from Clark County, NV who said that protesters or people coming to support Bundy “better have funeral plans” if they come to Clark County.

Americans have been pushed deep into a corner from which there is likely only one avenue of escape. We need to steel ourselves, and be armed, ready, and willing to fight if necessary. We should not fire the first shot, but we d*** sure better fire the last one.

Barack HugObama Chavez completing transformation of the press into ‘State-Run Media’

If you’re not already awake to the fact that Barack Obama is a tyrant who, along with his progressive minions, wish to rule and oppress us, what else will it take to convince you?  ALL dissent to this president and administration is being punished, and that punishment is being used to intimidate anyone else who might speak out against their tyranny.  The IRS is being used to financially intimidate political opponents.  The NSA is monitoring and collecting data from everyone that could be used against them for blackmail or other purposes.  The police forces are being militarized along with the Dept. of Homeland (in)Security to act as a force not to PROTECT us, but to CONTROL us.  The military is being purged of any senior leader who shows a willingness to honor his oath to defend the Constitution against ALL enemies, and/or who has any real leadership ability and charisma.  And now Obama is moving to ensure that an already largely compliant and subservient media is brought completely under his control, and all unfavorable reporting on him, his administration, or the agenda he is pushing is crushed.  We are one step away from Pravda, state-run media, here in America.  This is the kind of thing that was done by Hugo Chavez, Joseph Stalin, Mao, Hitler, and every other dictator who has risen to power.

With all of the MYRIAD violations of the law and the Constitution by this president and his administration, WHAT FURTHER PROOF DO YOU NEED that he is an ENEMY OF OUR REPUBLIC AND OUR CONSTITUTION?!?!?!?!

This usurper MUST be removed from office, tried, impeached, and jailed.  He has gone FAR beyond the transgressions that any previous president has EVER been impeached for, and he’s NOT SLOWING DOWN.  In fact, he is becoming more bold in his willingness to ignore the law and Constitution with each passing day, and these transgressions are right out in public for all to see.

Congress won’t act, the ballot box has already been corrupted, and the law means nothing to this president.  What avenue of redress are we left with to remove this usurping tyrant?

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness… But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.  –Excerpt from the Declaration of Independence

The only difference between the 1st American Revolution and the one we need now is that the despotic “King” is not an ocean away.

Why is the Obama Administration Putting Government Monitors in Newsrooms?

President Barack Obama

By Matthew Clark Filed in: Free Speech

The Obama Administration’s Federal Communication Commission (FCC) is poised to place government monitors in newsrooms across the country in an absurdly draconian attempt to intimidate and control the media.

Bring your guns to Church

Updated 4/4/2012, 10:17, to correct formatting
Many Christians have been brainwashed and browbeaten into believing that they should not defend themselves when attacked or threatened by a criminal or other person who wishes them ill.  Many have also fallen for the lie that we shouldn’t own or carry a gun for self defense.  This could not be further from the truth.

Our founding fathers were much more well versed in the Bible than most who we call “Biblical scholars” today.  They considered this matter while while hammering out our Constitution, and there are very good reasons that we have our 2nd Amendment as a result.

As you read through the article, I encourage you to look up the scriptural references the author lists.

“Bring Your Pieces to Church” Sunday

Filed under American History, Articles, Featured {86 comments}

Imagine the following scenario: At church this Sunday, while reviewing the list of announcements and upcoming events for your church, your pastor added, “Oh, and don’t forget: on Sundays we have our regular target practice. Make sure to bring your rifles. Make sure to bring your pieces to church.”

Absurd, right? Not so. It used to be the American way. For example, a 1631 law in Virginia required citizens to own firearms, to engage in practice with them, and to do so publicly on holy days. It demanded that the people “bring their pieces to the church.” Somewhere along the line we have lost this mindset. Today the ideas of church and arms are assumed to be at odds, as if loving your neighbor has nothing to do with the preservation and defense of life and property.

But the idea of Christian society and an armed, skilled populace actually have deep historical roots. Alfred the Great codified the laws of England in the 9th Century, often resorting to biblical law in order to do so (where he departed from biblical law, the integrity of his famous law code is quite poor). Alfred applied the Deuteronomic laws of kings that forbad a standing army (Deut. 17), and as a result developed a national defense based on militia:

By the Saxon laws, every freeman of an age capable of bearing arms, and not incapacitated by any bodily infirmity, was in case of a foreign invasion, internal insurrection, or other emergency, obliged to join the army.…[1]

Obama/Democrat Tax Policy NOT about Fairness, But about CONTROL

Commentary below…

That Cornhusker Kickback Will Cost You Plenty

April 2, 2010 by Chip Wood

That Cornhusker Kickback Will Cost You Plenty

Remember when Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson cut a deal with the Obama Administration to deliver the 60th vote in favor of Obamacare? To the ever-lasting shame of both sides, the result was an embarrassment that came to be known as the Cornhusker Kickback.

Basically, Big Ben asked for some special help so Nebraska could cover the increased costs of Medicaid when Obamacare finally passed. Barack and his buddies said “done” and—viola!—suddenly there was an additional $100 million for Nebraska buried deep in the legislation. (Victory at any cost, regardless of whether or not it is good for the American people.  Sure, they are willing to make the other 49 states pay to buy one vote.  Why not?)

When news of this sweetheart deal got out, I’m delighted to report that a mighty outcry went up around the country. No one was willing to defend this crass example of Washington payola—not the folks who arranged it or even the voters who benefited from it.

In a sane world such overt bribery would never make it past a conference committee. But fiscal sanity—or even outright honesty—hasn’t been much of a factor in Washington politics for years. Instead of slicing $100 million out of Obamacare, the wheeler-dealers in charge of spending your money decided that “the only fair thing to do” was to give the same benefits to the other 49 states.

All of a sudden a special subsidy that was going to cost us $100 million—pocket change when you’re talking about a $870-billion piece of legislation—soared to $30 billion. Even by Washington’s spendthrift standards, we’re starting to talk about some real money here, folks.

What happened next shouldn’t have surprised me: The powers that be decided to cover the costs by slapping a new tax on well-off Americans. (Except for democrats, democrat supporters, and Obama’s cabinet. There are several multi-millionaires in that group that pay little or no tax whatsoever. If it’s so freaking FAIR for the “rich” to pay more taxes, why don’t they join the party? Oh, wait. I see the difference. You are only supposed to tax those who actually EARN their money. That would rule out the liberals and democrats right away.) After all, as President Obama keeps reiterating, it’s only right that the wealthiest among us pay “their fair share.”

So that’s how a brand-new tax on what the redistributionists like to call “unearned income” became the law of the land. (And of course Tim Geithner who will be telling us to pay this tax won’t be paying his using the excuse that he’s too dumb to figure out Turbo Tax. That may actually be true. Nor will the rules apply to Charlie “Condo” Rangel, and I’m sure to most or all of the democrats and their supporters. Mr. Obama keeps talking about all of this “fairness,” yet I don’t see him or his amazon wife donating any of their millions and lowering their standards to match ours which he is destroying daily. What gives?) Starting next year, if you earn more than $200,000 a year, expect to see another bite taken out of anything you’ve managed to save. The new tax will cover interest on your Certificates of Deposit and other savings accounts; any dividends you make on stocks or mutual funds, rental income on any real estate you own, and anything else our masters in Washington can classify as “unearned” income. (For people who claim to be so smart, these democrats sure are dumb. They don’t understand basic economics, they either don’t study history, or just don’t care, and they don’t seem to care that their policies ALWAYS have the direct opposite of their stated intent. By taxing the producers of this country at such a high level, you remove their incentive to produce. When that happens, factories close, jobs vanish, the tax base and industrial base dry up, and no wealth is being produced from which to tax anymore. This is not a hard concept to understand, and has been borne out through thousands of years of economic history.)

Excuse me for a moment while I let out a primal scream or two about the Marxist misnaming of my so-called unearned income.  I worked mighty hard to earn every penny I’ve managed to save. There were a lot of 80 and 90 hour weeks when I was younger and just starting in business. I had to do the work of two or three people every week to keep my company’s doors open. And I’ll bet a lot of you who will be hit by this new tax can say the same thing.

Even Ben Nelson is now in full retreat from the monstrosity he helped create. No sooner had the Senate version of Obamacare finally been approved in the House than he became the first Democrat in the Senate to denounce “reconciliation.” He said he was especially troubled by the new tax he helped foist on us. He also denounced all those other add-ons that have pushed “the total cost of health reform up billions of dollars.”

Gee, does anyone think the senator is trying to curry favor with the voters back home? (Of course he is. He is a coward trying to save his own skin, preserve his own job, and maintain a hold on political power.) I hope a lot of Nebraskans will remember all of this when they go to the polls this November.

By the way, while I’m on the subject, may I ask for a show of hands of all of you who feel you don’t pay your fair share of taxes? And yes, Mr. Buffett, if by any chance someone sends you this column, we would love to publish your reply. I’ve seen reports that you think you should pay more. So why don’t you? There’s no law against Berkshire Hathaway adding a zero to every check it sends Uncle Sam.

For the sake of this discussion, I’m willing to grant that every American who is worth more than $50 billion should pay more in taxes than I do. Not just more total dollars, but I’ll compromise my principles enough to tolerate the plank in the Communist Manifesto that calls for a progressive income tax being levied against them.

But for the rest of us, let’s get real, as my kids would say. The canard that well-off Americans aren’t paying “their fair share” is one of the biggest of the Big Lies that socialists have used for decades to foster the culture of envy that dominates almost all of our politics.

Let’s look at the numbers to see what the truth really is. The last year for which the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has released figures is 2007, so what follows is a bit out of date. But I can’t imagine that the percentages have changed much in ’08 and ’09. Look at what the government’s own figures show:

  • The top 1 percent of taxpayers in this country pay 40.42 percent of all income taxes.
  • For the top 5 percent, the percentage is even higher. The 7.1 million taxpayers who fit this description pay 60.63 percent of all Federal income taxes.
  • The bigger the net, the greater the discrepancy. The top 25 percent of taxpayers (35.3 million of us) can take pride in knowing that we contribute 86.59 percent of federal taxes. And the top 50 percent (70.5 million of us) pay 97.11 percent of the total taxes collected.

In comparison, the bottom 50 percent of filers—some 70.5 million of Americans with any kind of income—pay a minuscule 2.89 percent of federal tax dollars.

(Did you get that? The bottom 50% of FILERS don’t pay ANY federal income tax. If you are getting the “Earned Income Tax Credit,” you aren’t paying taxes. Obama and company are trying to push more of the middle class into the dependent class so they can create a super majority of voters who are dependent on the purse strings of government. The end result is twofold. You get a bunch of zero-liability voters telling the producers how to spend what they earn, and you have an ever expanding class of people beholden to and dependent on government. That’s enough to secure power, and eventually get to the point that votes don’t matter any more. Then we are ALL serfs.)

By what possible rationale can anyone say that the “rich” in this country don’t pay their fare share? You tell me. If the 71.22 percent that the top 10 percent in this country pay isn’t “their fair share,” then what is? I’d really like to know how you Obamaites (and yes, there are lots of you who read this column) justify urging government to confiscate more of our earnings.

With tax-collection day now less than two weeks away (Tax Freedom Day won’t happen for nearly two more months; I’ll write about that as it gets closer), I’ve been thinking a lot about our rapacious government and what it will take to put it on a diet.

As we’ve just seen, asking nicely ain’t gonna do it. Even yelling loud and long won’t be enough.

We’ve got to run the rascals out of office. Not all of them, I’m happy to say. Get rid of the worst 10 or 15 percent and the rest of the crowd in Washington will move to the right so fast the loony left won’t know what hit them. (I can only hope and pray that our republic survives that long, and that we can indeed save the republic without the need for a 2nd American Revolution.)

Remember, most legislators aren’t dedicated to making government bigger. They aren’t dedicated to making it smaller, either. They’re just dedicated to staying in office. And if sounding (and voting) like a new Sarah Palin is what it will take to protect their careers, most of them will move right so fast all you’ll see is a blur. (He is absolutely correct in that they want to stay in office. However, I feel the author is a bit optimistic about a shift to the right for the democrats. They have let the cat out of the proverbial bag, shown their true stripes, and shown us what is REALLY at the core of their being. Their core is rabid social progressivism. They can’t put that genie back in the bottle now. It is up to the voters to rid us of these vermin. Should the voters fail, and their tyranny continue unchecked, the responsibility of saving this republic will fall upon the shoulders of a few brave men and women willing to sacrifice everything, just as they did in the 1700’s against the British. God, help us and show your mercy upon us so that it does not become necessary for Americans to shed the blood of fellow Americans to preserve liberty and our republic.)

In this country, we can still “throw the rascals out.”  But it will only happen, as I’ve said before, if those of us who work for a living become as devoted to the battle as those who vote for a living.

Until next Friday, think about what you’ll do to make a difference. And keep some powder dry. (Gun owning patriots are the last line of defense between America and slavery. As the saying goes, “Fear the Government That Fears Your Guns.” If you study history, you know that is exactly why the 2nd Amendment exists in our constitution. It is to remind our government that they work for us, not the other way around. Watch as Obama and the progressives try to circumvent and destroy our 2nd Amendment rights. He intends to do it by international treaty if necessary, but he intends to do it, make no mistake. The moment he tries will likely be the moment the shooting starts.)

America Rising

The only thing about this video that I disagree with is that I DIDN’T trust these tyrants, nor did I vote for them.  The 52% of the voters in the 2008 election who voted for Rope and Chains can pat themselves on the back for torpedoing America.  Buyer’s remorse?  That’s small consolation.

Now we focus on the task at hand.  Saving America.

Liberals (Democrat or Republican), we’re coming for you.
