They Tyranny of Gun Control

When a politician wants to make you live by a rule or law which they refuse to live by themselves, that should tell you all you need to know about submitting to such a law.

Here we have the ultra-progressives of California who want all the gun control they can get, but have openly exempted themselves from it.  When someone wants to keep their guns, but doesn’t want you to keep yours, does that send a message to you?  It should.

Realize that this didn’t happen yesterday, but back in 2011.  Since then, the progressives have just been making it harder and harder for the citizens of California to own a gun while the progressive politicians arm themselves with impunity, and have armed security.

Until we stop falling into the trap of blaming inanimate objects instead of blaming the criminal for their crime, we’ll never solve the problem.  And if we allow ourselves to be disarmed, we will have no protection from the criminals OR the tyrants who want to disarm us.

California Senate Votes 28-8 to Exempt Itself from California Gun Laws

The California State Senate agrees with Charlie Rangel that they “deserve” to own guns but the citizens do not! Every year they pass more and more gun control laws and NONE of them apply to themselves!

They voted 28-8 to exempt themselves from the gun-control laws that apply to the rest of the California.

You think maybe this will cause Californians to rise up? NOPE! It happened 5 years ago and since then, California has passed a plethora of other gun laws…that only apply to citizens.

Yes, you heard me right! The exemption was created in 2011 and the California legislature has passed a number of gun laws since. Pretty easy when you are passing bills that do not apply to you!

It is not the only special privileges California legislators provide themselves!

They do not pay red light camera bills or for gasoline!

How does it all happen so easily in California? The Washington Post explains:

Attempts by a handful of reformers to require politicians to provide a full annual disclosure of the benefits received from the public treasury have been rebuffed. Currently, government officials must file a statement of economic interests revealing income from any source other than a local, state or federal government agency. Gifts worth more than $50 also must be disclosed, but lawmakers rejected a bill that would have prohibited acceptance of concert and sporting event tickets, gift cards, spa treatments, golf outings and other benefits from lobbyists trying to buy votes.

Bills of this nature never meet an honest fate in which roll-call votes put members on the record as favoring or opposing each idea. Instead, reform measures are held in committee to die quietly as legislative deadlines pass. As of last week, it’s effectively impossible for a bill to become law if it hasn’t already passed in at least one of the chambers.

…and it just goes on and on!

Red Skelton said so eloquently in his commentary on the Pledge of Allegiance:

And to the Republic — A Republic: a sovereign state in which power is invested into the representatives chosen by the people to govern; and the government is the people; and it’s from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.

California has it backwards, they are running with the method of “from the leaders to the people.”

That is why I joined the 5 million people who have fled California within the last decade.

You can take me out of Texas in a pine box, and even then I will be kicking and screaming!

1,063 Documented Examples of Barack Obama’s Lying, Lawbreaking, Corruption, Cronyism, Hypocrisy, Waste, Etc

The list of Obama lies, corruption, etc. is now growing so long that you need a continuous scroll to document it all, and what has been uncovered is just scratching the surface. He has so blatantly broken the law that he should have been impeached in the first year of his presidency. But he didn’t just stop with breaking the law. By giving aid, even military aid, and comfort to our enemies, he has committed treason, and he should meet the fate of a traitor.

Enjoy a little light reading in the linked pdf below. Get comfortable. It may take a while to read all of misdeeds of one Barack Hussein Obama.

Obamacare: Broken Promises and Lies

This article from the typically liberal leaning Time does a good job of dismantling the lies of Obamacare.

claims-vs-reality

One must understand that Obamacare was DESIGNED to fail.  If Obama and the democrats could have made the leap straight to completely government run healthcare, they would have done so.  But they knew better.  First, they had to set the hook and bury it as deeply as possible.  They had to make it so painful to dismantle Obamacare that those who had gotten hooked on it, mostly those who were getting it for “free” or without paying the full freight, would revolt if you took away their “free” stuff, and would demand the government take over the whole system.

We warned you back in 2010 what you would get with Obamacare.  I wish we had been wrong, and America was actually better off and improving.  But sadly, we were right.  Now Obamacare is collapsing around us as even the subsidized insurers can’t make a profit on this abomination.  Obamacare WILL collapse.  It’s only a matter of time.

America Waking Up to the Reality That We Need to Brace for Impact

The pilot was locked out of the cockpit. That phrase finally revealed the full horror of the crash of Germanwings flight 9525. Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz waited for the pilot to leave the cockpit, then locked the door to prevent his re-entry. After which Lubitz, for reasons unknown and perhaps unknowable, deliberately steered the jet into a harrowing 8 minute plunge ending in an explosive 434 mph impact
with a rocky mountainside. 150 men, women and children met an immediate, unthinkably violent death.

Lubitz, in his single-minded madness, couldn’t be stopped because anyone who could change the jet’s disastrous course was locked out. It’s hard to imagine the growing feelings of fear and helplessness that the passengers felt as the unforgiving landscape rushed up to meet them. Hard – but not impossible.

Because America is in trouble. We feel the descent in the pits of our stomachs. We hear the shake and rattle of structures stressed beyond their limits. We don’t know where we’re going anymore, but do know it isn’t good. And above all, we feel helpless because Barack Obama has locked us out.

He locked the American people out of his decision to seize the national healthcare system. Locked us out when we wanted to know why the IRS was attacking conservatives. He locked us out of having a say in his decision to tear up our immigration laws, and to give over a trillion dollars in benefits to those who broke those laws.

Obama locked out those who advised against premature troop withdrawals. Locked out the intelligence agencies who issued warnings about the growing threat of ISIS . He locked out anyone who could have interfered with his release of five Taliban terror chiefs in return for one U.S. military deserter.

And of course, Barack Obama has now locked out Congress, the American people, and our allies as he strikes a secret deal with Iran to determine the timeline (not prevention) of their acquisition of nuclear weapons.

Was Andreas Lubitz depressed, insane, or abysmally evil when he decided to lock that cockpit door and listen to no voices other than those in his head? Did he somehow believe himself to be doing the right thing?

The voice recordings from the doomed aircraft reveal that as the jet began its rapid descent, the passengers were quiet. There was probably some nervous laughter, confusion, a bit of comforting chatter with seat mates, followed by a brief period in which anxiety had not yet metastasized into terror.

It was only near the end of the 8 minute plunge that everyone finally understood what was really happening. Only near the end when they began to scream.

Like those passengers, a growing number of Americans feel a helpless dread as they come to the inescapable conclusion that our nation’s decline is an act of choice rather than of chance. The choice of one man who is in full control of our 8 year plunge. A man who has locked everyone out.

It’s hard to comprehend all this guy has gotten away with. Any other president would have been impeached during the first year of their presidency for what this tyrant has done! For what Obama has done in 5 years, ANY other president would have been arrested, tried for treason, and HUNG. What in God’s name is wrong with our government that they allow this guy carte blanch to break the law, rewrite and create laws without congress, and ignore and attack the Constitution? It absolutely boggles the mind!

What spawned such an evil man?  How about a communist-muslim loving mother who was into posing for pornographic pictures, a communist-muslim father (whether you believe the father is BO, Sr., or Frank Marshall Davis, the father was at least communist), communist grandparents, terrorist and communist friends and mentors?

Einstein actually explained how Obama’s background came together to form who he is.

Where Do Your “Rights” Come From?

If your rights are not endowed by God, but are arbitrarily granted by man, then those rights can arbitrarily be taken away by man. We are seeing that taking place RIGHT NOW. Also, a “right” does not take away from another. If you look at many/most of the so-called “rights” granted by government, they take from one to redistribute to another. “Free” healthcare, “free” education, etc. The government takes by force from those who have earned these things to provide them to those who have not. When men and government decide that your rights are inconvenient, they can arbitrarily take them away. Right to bear arms? Government sees that as a threat, so they are trying to take it away. Right to choose your own doctor? Government views that as unnecessary and “unfair,” so they HAVE taken that away. The right to free speech? Already gone. The government can decide if your words are “hateful” and whether or not you can speak them. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Yes, now even your basic right to LIFE is at the whim of the government if we have allowed them to take our other rights AND the ability to defend them.

Do you think you STILL live in a free country? Think again. Do you want to live in a truly free country? Then fight for it.



Liberty — Endowed by Whom?

The Eternal Bequest

By Mark Alexander · Jul. 3, 2013

“God who gave us life gave us Liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.” –Thomas Jefferson (1774)

Amid all the contemporary political and cultural contests, too many conservatives fail to make the case for overarching eternal truths – whether in debate with adversaries across the aisles of Congress, or with neighbors across Main Street.

Lost in the din is the foundational endowment of Essential Liberty, and any debate that does not begin with this eternal truth will end with temporary deceits.

The most oft-cited words from our Declaration of Independence are these: “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.”

The eternal assertion that Liberty for all people is “endowed by their Creator” and is thus “unalienable” should require no defense, because “we hold these truths to be self-evident,” and because the rights of man are irrevocable from the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.”

But the root of all debate between Liberty and tyranny – or, in political parlance, between Right and left – is the contest to assert who endows Liberty – God or man. Continue reading

Key Obamacare Architect: We Had to Lie to Pass Obamacare

Keep in mind, Gruber isn’t just some random flunky off the streets.  He was one of the key architects responsible for writing the law.  IN HIS OWN WORDS he describes how those who crafted the law had to lie to the American people to get it passed.  It was written specifically in such a way that the CBO would not (at the time) score the things hidden in Obamacare as taxes, or it couldn’t have passed.  They had to hide the fact that healthy people would pay in for sick people to get more money.  He says “lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” or more accurately, ‘lying was the only way we could pass this.’  He calls the American people ‘stupid’.  And lastly, understand that Obamacare is a 100% DEMOCRAT LAW, passed without a single Republican vote, and passed despite a majority of Americans NOT wanting this law at the time, and a larger majority who oppose it now.

Remember the lies that the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, told the American people over and over again trying to drum up support for this government takeover of our healthcare system.

“If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period.”

“If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period.”

“In an Obama Administration, we’ll lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year.”

“Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase.”

“I will protect Medicare.”

Conservatives who read the law before it was passed tried to warn everyone that these lies were just that.  Lies.  Now the pain of these lies is being felt by nearly everyone, and it is only getting worse as premiums and penalties are set to go up AGAIN in January.  Costs are skyrocketing as availability and quality of care deteriorate as more and more doctors either refuse to accept Obamacare, or are just leaving practice altogether, as we predicted they would. 

There is only one course of action acceptable to recover from this disaster.  FULL REPEAL OF OBAMACARE.
