We Conservatives have lost; The Liberals are coming!

We Conservatives have lost; The Liberals are coming!

Matrix movie red blue pill

What have “we” become as a nation?  Who is the “we”?  With over 80% of Americans believing in God, guns, and the Confederate flag, how come “we” as a nation have turned in such a terrible direction. Most Americans do not support Obamacare, gay marriage, removal of the Confederate flag, removal of “in God we trust”, or giving Iran the bomb.

Most of us (over 85%) believe the border should be secured with a fence, illegals deported, illegals taken off welfare, welfare in general is too large, taxes are too high, the deficit is out of control, that Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery, the military should not be decimated as it has been over the last 7 years, and the Second Amendment is a guaranteed constitutional right.

So “we the people” believe in all of the above.  But where are the “we’s”?

Red is Conservative voting counties.

Obama barely won the last two elections.  Basically a 51/49 split.  So the numbers don’t add up.  80+% conservative thinking Americans but 51% voted liberally.  Huh?  Doesn’t add up even for those of you with weak math skills.

I am impressed with Obama.

In 7 years he gave us “Change We Can Believe In”.  Believe him now?

Obama change we can believe in
2008 Presidential Election

In 7 years he has lead change in our country that most of us thought we’d never see in this country.  Gay marriage. National healthcare. Iran with a nuclear bomb.  Russia flying military aircraft into our airspace.  Complete decimation of our military strength and fighting ability. A border so open hundreds of thousands of illegals cross each year encouraged by our government to do.

Most conservatives think we will turn our country around.  It won’t EVER happen!

We’ve lost!

And we aren’t ever turning back.  Too many people have been deeply influenced by the liberal main stream media.  The rage right now is the removal of the Confederate Flag.  The states of Alabama and South Carolina, two deeply conservative states, have removed this flag.  Did you think you’d ever see the South cave into this sort of pressure.  I’m am extremely disappointed in those states giving in.

But in other news right now, a 32 year old white woman walking down the streets of San Fran with her dad was brutally killed by an illegal alien (hispanic) and a young white male in DC on his way to celebrate the 4th was killed by a black man who wanted the white guy’s cell phone.  Stab him 40 times on a moving subway car while other’s watched.

How many of you have cried out for these two white victims?   Looted? Destroyed buildings and cars? Even protested? How many of you have even heard of these incidents?

Where’s the media coverage?  Where’s the outrage? 85% of us should be outraged.  Instead the 15% are worried about the Confederate Flag.  Its so bad Memphis is digging up a Confederate Civil War hero, and his wife, and moving the bodies!

15% protested, looted, and destroyed a city over a black thug being killed as he was attacking a white police office when the thug was beating him up and attempting to take his gun. 15% protested, looted, and destroyed a city when police (black police mind you) killed another black thug in Baltimore.

United We Stand!

Nope, scratch that….Divided We Fall!

We are a severely divided nation.  Obama promised us change to bring us together.  He did accomplish that by bringing together Muslims, Blacks, Hispanics, and Liberals.  And he has brought closer those people who want to destroy America.

8 years ago, our government was not oppressing Christians. And no one ever thought Islam would be held in high esteem by our government.  Let an Muslim cut off the head of a lady at work, and no one cares. But there’s no way we are going to let that racist, bigot Colorado baker not make a wedding cake for a gay wedding!

And its working!  That is why I am impressed by him.  He has accomplished things that most Americans (85%) thought we would never see in this country.

Did you see where the Federal government FORCED a Colorado baker to make a wedding cake for a gay couple AGAINST his religious beliefs?

Did you see where the Federal government sent in an armed group of 200+ agents against a unarmed Nevada farmer in order for Senator Harry Reid to take the farmers land and give to the Chinese?

All true stories.  And many, many more like them that most of you have never heard about.  Why?  They are not in the evening news on the liberal main stream media.

The USA, the “United” States, that 85% of us knew and loved is gone.  It’s not coming back.  We are losing and will lose because of the influx of foreigners and the liberal agenda being brain-washed into our younger generations.

There is nothing we can do.  At least as things are today.

Congress is worthless, spineless, weak, and influenced by big money from liberal minded people.  For those of you who believe Obama is really in charge, watch the movie “The Matrix” and take the blue pill which makes you go back to the world as you know it.  The red pill opens your eyes to what the world really is.  “It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes.” The Matrix movie.

When a married couple has irreconcilable differences, differences that they are NEVER going to resolve, they get a divorce and then find another person who is more like-minded.

Liberals and Conservatives are NEVER going to reconcile their differences.

We need a divorce!

It would be so nice if the all the Red States could live together under laws and leadership of like-minded people. And let the Blue’s do the same.

ATF Decided Banning Ammo A Mistake, Now Democrats Want To Buy Back Guns With Federal Money

ATF Decided Banning Ammo A Mistake, Now Democrats Want To Buy Back Guns With Federal Money

AR-15-not-an-assault-rifle

Since the ATF decided it was a mistake to ban certain ammo, U.S. House Democrats have once again come up with a scheme to come after certain guns. This time, they want to pay you to turn them in.

The director of the ATF quietly resigned on March 31 amid the controversy of the failed “back door ammo ban” for certain AR-15 ammunition. The proposed ban of M855 ammunition validated the NRA’s claim that the administration was willing to even go behind the back of the U.S. Congress to impose gun control on the American people. When the ATF failed, certain Democrats from both the Senate and the House of Representatives proposed legislation that would restart the ammo ban. So far, all those measures have failed.

Now, Democrat Representatives have a new plan to get the “scary looking guns” off the street.

The Support Assault Firearm Elimination and Education of our (SAFER) Streets Act will be re-introduced next week by Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn). This act works with the IRS to provide monetary incentives for gun owners to turn their firearms in to their local police departments.

“Assault weapons are not about hunting, or even self-defense. There is no reason on Earth, other than to kill as many people as possible in as short a time as possible, that anyone needs a gun designed for a battlefield.  These weapons were used in Newtown, Aurora and countless other mass shootings across America.  And they have been disproportionately used to kill law enforcement officers in the line of duty.  They have no place on the streets or in our homes.” (Rep. Rosa DeLauro)

While DeLauro is not above admitting she favors strict gun laws and weapons bans, she states this measure should be passed because it doesn’t “force” gun owners to turn in their weapons. This bill instead provides up to a $2000 tax credit — $1000 a year for two years — for anyone willing to surrender their “assault weapons” to local police.

She originally proposed this bill in January 2013, just one month after the Newtown tragedy. The legislation fell short of the votes needed to pass, as the Republicans gained control of the House that same month. Still upset her measures didn’t pass, she plans on re-introducing the same bill next week when Congress returns from recess.

“Just days after the Newtown tragedy, President Obama asked ‘Are we doing enough to protect our children?’ And he admitted the answer is no.  That must change.” (Rep. Rosa DeLauro)

Her announcement of this legislation was in conjunction with the beginning of National Public Health Week.

The definition of the term “assault rifle” is not the same thing used by the military or law enforcement as the term used by Democrats in Congress. Automatic weapons are already banned and have been for many years. The high capacity magazines used in Newtown and Aurora were already banned in Connecticut and Colorado. In fact, the Pentagon defines assault rifles very different from Congress.

As the United States Defense Department’s Defense Intelligence Agency book Small Arms Identification and Operation Guide explains, “assault rifles” are “short, compact, selective-fire weapons that fire a cartridge intermediate in power between submachine gun and rifle cartridges.” In other words, assault rifles are battlefield rifles which can fire automatically. (Journal of Contemporary Law)

While the .223 round is similar to the U.S. Military ammunition and used by the most popular “assault rifle” targeted by Senator Dianne Feinstein and Representative Rosa DeLauro, it is not exclusive to the AR-15. Many hunting rifles use this type of ammunition. If you were to use a magazine, put a hand hold, or customize the stock on any of these classic rifles, they become targeted by legislation such as this. These laws are not after “assault rifles,” but “military style” or “scary looking” guns.

She is not alone in wanting to pay you to hand over your weapons voluntarily. The co-sponsors include Reps. Betty McCollum (D-Minn.), Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.), Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), and David Cicilline (D-R.I.).

Obama gun control push backfires as industry sees unprecedented surge

By Stephen Dinan – The Washington Times 

The American firearms industry is as healthy as ever, seeing an unprecedented surge that has sent production of guns soaring to more than 10.8 million manufactured in 2013 alone — double the total of just three years earlier.

The 2013 surge — the latest for which the government has figures — came in the first full year after the December 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, signaling that the push for stricter gun controls, strongly backed by President Obama, did little to chill the industry despite the passage of stricter laws in states such as New York, Maryland, Connecticut and California.

Indeed, interest in guns appears to be at an all-time high in California, which shattered its previous record for gun-purchase background checks last month, with nearly 200,000 processed, suggesting a vibrant firearms market in the country’s largest state.

Industry backers say they aren’t surprised firearms buyers and manufacturers alike have responded to the national gun control debate by making and purchasing more.

“The surge in firearms sales in 2013 reflects both a long-term upward trend in shooting sports participation and [a] particular concern that year that law-abiding gun owners and those interested in purchasing a firearm for the first time could face tougher restrictions affecting access to and selection of firearms,” said Mike Bazinet, spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, an industry group.

Little more than two years after the Sandy Hook shooting, which claimed the lives of 20 schoolchildren and six faculty at the school, the staying power of the industry is striking.

Despite Mr. Obama’s personal appeal for stricter laws, efforts to impose new background checks and to ban military-style rifles and high-capacity ammunition magazines failed at the federal level in 2013. The Democratic-led Senate blocked those changes in a filibuster, and the GOP-controlled House never even took up any legislation.

Mr. Obama was left to move ahead on his own, signing more than two dozen executive orders and memos tweaking federal enforcement priorities, urging safe gun ownership and boosting the focus on mental health. He also nominated B. Todd Jones to be director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) — but two years later, Mr. Jones has quit the agency after a bungled effort to ban a popular type of rifle ammunition.

Some states did move forward in the wake of Newtown, including Connecticut, where Sandy Hook was located. Colorado, Maryland, New York and California also enacted restrictions.

Still to be seen is what effect those tougher state laws will have on manufacturers. Several companies signaled they would flee states where they no longer felt welcome and shift production to states that are seen as more gun-friendly, but those moves came too late to be reflected in the 2013 data, which is the most recent available. ATF releases data after a one-year gap.

Beretta, which produced nearly 350,000 firearms at its Accokeek, Maryland, plant in 2013, said last year it is moving to Tennessee.

A spokeswoman for the company didn’t return a call seeking comment.

Several gun control groups also didn’t respond to messages seeking comment on the manufacturing statistics and what they mean for the state of the debate.

Surging under Obama

The biggest change in production has come under President Obama. From 2001 to 2007, gun production held steady at between 3 million and 4 million units a year. It topped 4 million in 2008 but shot to 5.6 million in 2009, held steady in 2010 and then spiked to 8.6 million guns in 2012 and a record 10.8 million in 2013, according to ATF data.

‘Gun Letter’ Informs Pawn And Gun Shop Owner His Bank Accounts Are Being Closed

‘Gun Letter’ Informs Pawn And Gun Shop Owner His Bank Accounts Are Being Closed

Andy Raymond, gun store owner
Andy Raymond, gun store owner

A gun and pawn shop owner in Florida received what he was told is “one of the gun letters” from his bank last month informing him that his business is no longer welcome.

Steve Champion, who opened American Gun & Pawn in Brooksville last year, received a letter from SunTrust on March 20, stating that he’ll have to close his accounts by April 20.

“At first I thought it must be a hoax,” Champion told WFLA. “This is the craziest thing I’ve ever seen,” he wrote on his Facebook account, where he also posted the SunTrust letter.

The letter matches others sent to pawn shops and gun store owners across the country. Though banks and the federal government have remained tight-lipped about the closures, they are believed to be related to Operation Choke Point, a Department of Justice initiative ostensibly aimed at ending bank fraud. Choke Point has identified nearly 30 types of businesses as being at “high-risk” for fraudulent and illegal activities. The “high-risk” list includes gun shops, pawn shops, coin dealers and payday lenders.

“SunTrust continuously reviews its products, markets, and client relationships to ensure that we are able to provide the best possible client services,” reads SunTrust’s letter to Champion.

“As a result of a recent account review, we regret to inform you that SunTrust is no longer able to provide some of the financial services you require. We respectfully request that you immediately begin closing all of your SunTrust deposit accounts, safe deposit boxes and credit cards by 4/20/2015,” the letter continues, noting that the decision cannot be reversed.

While Operation Choke Point does not explicitly force banks to end relationships with “high-risk” companies, it is believed that maintaining those relationships opens banks up to more scrutiny. Rather than deal with more oversight, some banks seem to have chosen to stop doing business with such companies altogether.

Naturally, Champion is not happy with the decision and has vowed to spread word of SunTrust’s actions.

“I’ve worked my whole life to open a business,” he told WFLA. “I have a near-perfect credit score. I have zero debt.”

“There is no reason other than they don’t want to do business either with a gun store or a pawn shop, period,” he said. “So they’re discriminating.”

“We’re a legitimate business that’s licensed through the federal government so why am I being singled out and why is my account being canceled?” he continued. “It’s just unacceptable, and I told them I will tell everyone that wants to listen.”

A spokesman for SunTrust told WFLA that the bank began severing relationships with pawn shops last year. He said that gun stores are not being targeted. Many pawn shops across the U.S. also sell guns.

But Champion questions the accuracy of that statement, given what a SunTrust customer service representative told him.

Common AR-15 Green Tip Ammunition Already Banned in New ATF Regulation Guide

Common AR-15 Green Tip Ammunition Already Banned in New ATF Regulation Guide

On Friday February 13 at 4:00 pm, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms released a proposal to ban commonly used M855 “green tip” AR-15 ammunition under the guise of law enforcement safety. The same day the proposal was released, on a Friday of a three day holiday weekend, ATF opened up a shortened 30-day period for the public to submit comments about the new regulation.

But it turns out, ATF has been working on a ban of AR-15 “green-tip” ammunition for quite some time and has already issued the ban in its new, 2014 Regulation Guide. For reference, ATF Regulation Guides come out approximately every ten years.

obama gun control ammo

When you take a look at the 2005 ATF Regulation Guide, you’ll see an exemption for AR-15 “green-tip” ammunition, which means it exempted from the definition of “armor piercing” and therefore is legal on the federal level.

When you look at the last page of the new, most recent ATF 2014 Regulation Guide, which was published in January, there is no longer an exemption for AR-15 “green-tip” ammunition.

“The 2014 edition of the Federal Firearms Regulations Reference Guide contains information that will help you comply with Federal laws and regulations governing the manufacture, importation and distribution of firearms and ammunition. This edition contains new and amended statutes enacted since publication of the 2005 edition, as well as updated regulations and rulings issued by ATF. In addition to these updated materials, in response to inquiries received from industry members, the public, and partner agencies, the 2014 edition contains additional and amended Questions and Answers to assist with compliance,” ATF Director B. Todd Jones states in the 2014 edition of the new Regulation Guide (emphasis mine). “Laws may change over time, as will information in this guide.”

The Office of Management and Budget must review and approve ATF Regulation Guides, which again, come out approximately every 10 years. This can take months and changes to Regulation Guides are not easily or often made. Because of the lengthy amount of time it takes for OMB to approve a new ATF Regulation Guide, ATF’s comment period is just for show. ATF officials and the White House have (and never did) no interest in actually listening to or considering comments that are currently being submitted. The exemption for the ammunition in question has already been stripped out of the regulation handbook moving forward and “green-tip” has been reclassified as “armor piercing.” The rules have been changed. Further, because of local rules and regulations in different states across the country having their own “armor piercing” standards based on ATF regulations, thousands of people in possession of AR-15 green tip ammunition have essentially been turned into felons overnight.

A review of the timeline:

January 2015: ATF published a new, OMB approved Regulation Guide stripping AR-15 “green-tip” from its armor piercing exemption list.

February 2015: ATF proposes a ban (which they’ve already put in place through their handbook published in January) on AR-15 “green-tip” ammunition and opens up a comment period.

March 16, 2015: The comment period about the proposed/already implemented ban on AR-15 “green-tip” ammunition closes, ATF ignores tens-of-thousands of comments because they were never going to consider them in the first place, and continues with the regulations outlined in the new 2014 Regulation Guide.

ATF changed the law unilaterally, didn’t tell anyone about it and has now put up a bogus comment period that means nothing. Because of these actions, ATF and the White House have not only failed to follow the Administrative Procedure Act, but has gone around Congress to violate the Second Amendment rights of Americans.

So, what’ next? ATF is going to have to explain why the change was made under the radar and will also have to explain what this means for people in possession of “green-tip” ammunition after January 2015 when the new ATF Regulation Guide was published with the exemption missing. Is there no grandfathering period for possession? When will manufactures be forced to stop producing? What does this mean for buyers and sellers? States are also going to have to find a way to implement these regulations and define compliance under separate state ammunition possession laws.

Editor’s note: The timeline listed above mistakenly said 2014 for all three dates. It has been corrected to 2015.

Police say Obama bullet ban isn’t needed, AR-15 round isn’t a threat

Police say Obama bullet ban isn’t needed, AR-15 round isn’t a threat

BY PAUL BEDARD

obama gun control ammo

A top police representative on Tuesday said that there is no history of criminals using a round popular among AR-15 rifle shooters against officers, undermining the Obama administration’s argument for banning the 5.56 M855 “lightgreen tip.”

“Any ammunition is of concern to police in the wrong hands, but this specific round has historically not posed a law enforcement problem,” said James Pasco, executive director of the Washington office of the Fraternal Order of Police, the world’s largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers, with more than 325,000 members.

He told Secrets that the round used mostly for target practice “is not typically used against law enforcement.”

While he said that he is “not finding fault” with the surprise move last month by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to classify the round as “armor piercing” and then ban it, Pasco added, “While this round will penetrate soft body armor, it has not historically posed a threat to law enforcement.”

That view not only counters BATFE’s reason for proposing the ban, it also challenges the White House endorsement of the ban. SpokesmanJosh Earnest said Monday, “we are looking at additional ways to protect our brave men and women in law enforcement and believe that this process is valuable for that reason alone. This seems to be an area where everyone should agree that if there are armor-piercing bullets available that can fit into easily concealed weapons, that it puts our law enforcement at considerably more risk.”

The administration’s effort is under fire on Capitol Hill where 55 percent of all House members have signed a letter challenging BATFE‘s proposal.

Led by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte and the National Rifle Association, 235 members have signed the letter. The signatures came in at a record pace since Goodlatte’s team and the NRA have been circulating it for just three business days.

A similar effort is moving quickly through the Senate, led by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley.

As with most rounds used in rifles, the 5.56 M855 will shoot through soft body armor, but was granted an exemption to longstanding police protection legislation because it isn’t used by criminals who typically use smaller pistols.

BATFE said that with the popularity of AR-style pistols growing, the weapon poses a new threat to police. But foes of the bullet ban say that criminals are unlikely to spend the $1,000 or more to by one and also that at about 20 inches long, it isn’t considered a concealed weapon.

Many gun enthusiasts believe that the proposed bullet ban, up for public comment, is a backdoor bid to cut the popularity of the AR-15, the nation’s most popular gun, one critics call an “assault weapon” and a target of liberals and President Obama.

Its Starting!!! ATF pushes bullet ban, threatens top-selling AR-15 rifle

Its Starting!!! ATF pushes bullet ban, threatens top-selling AR-15 rifle

By Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner

come and take it pro gun protest control

It’s starting!!

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

DHS Report Warns of “Sovereign Citizen”, Right-Wing Domestic Terror Threat

DHS Report Warns of “Sovereign Citizen”, Right-Wing Domestic Terror Threat

By: Derrick Broze

“When governments criminalize innocent actions of free people there will be resistance.”

A new intelligence report produced by the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigations is calling attention to an apparent domestic terror threat from ” right-wing sovereign citizen extremists”, according to CNN.

The report claims that there have been 24 sovereign citizen attacks in the United States since 2010. According to the report these “extremists” believe they are not bound by the law and will assert their rights on a regular basis when confronted by police. This could be a traffic stop or refusing to obey court orders.

News of the report comes as the Obama Administration is holding a three-day conference analyzing both international and domestic threats from terrorism. According to the report some local and federal law enforcement agencies view the threat from so-called sovereign citizens to be equal or greater to the threat from the Islamic State and similar groups.

The term sovereign citizens has become a catch all term for those who assert their rights and refuse to accept what they see as unjust or immoral orders from police officers or other authorities. There have been several instances of individuals allegedly calling themselves sovereigns shooting or plotting to kill police officers. The report states “law enforcement officers will remain the primary target of (sovereign citizen) violence over the next year.”

 “(Sovereign citizen) violence during 2015 will occur most frequently during routine law enforcement encounters at a suspect’s home, during enforcement stops and at government offices.” – DHS Intelligence Report on Domestic Terror

This latest report comes after Attorney General Eric Holder announced the Justice Department would revive a task force on domestic terrorism in an attempt to stop violence within the United States.  Last Summer, Mr. Holder stated that the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee would work to eliminate the danger from violent individuals who may be motivated by anti-government or racist views.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Security Division of the Justice Department and the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee are in charge of the efforts. The committee was originally launched to focus on right-wing extremism in the aftermath of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

As Americans are waking up to the mass surveillance programs and growing police state around the country, many are pursuing knowledge of their rights when dealing with police officers and government officials. Rather than being violent extremists these are everyday, hard-working Americans who wish to feel safe and secure in their own homes.

An increased focus on police violence against unarmed citizens has caused a rift between communities and the authorities. The US governments search for “domestic extremists” is likely to net innocent individuals who are not pursuing violence but rather simply attempting to live free of government interference in their lives.

When governments criminalize innocent actions of free people there will be resistance. When governments propagandize the people to mistrust those who assert their rights, there will be division. Ultimately it is up to each of us to communicate with our neighbors and family members so they understand the difference between those pursuing violence and those attempting to live free.
