WILL BANNING GUNS STOP HOMICIDES? STATS FROM ENGLAND AND AUSTRALIA SHOW…

December 28, 2012 in Uncategorized

President Obama, Senator Feinstein and their far-left cronies want to disarm Law abiding citizens from exercising their Constitutional 2nd Amendment Right to Protection for themselves and for their families.

They will once again attempt to legislate unconstitutional gun control mandates . Connecticut has some of the toughest gun laws in America and the lesson that we have learned, once again,  is that we  can not stop or impede homicidal acts by criminals the insane or sociopaths. But Feinstein et al,  know that! I leave it to your imagination to determine what their real Agenda is!

If we don’t stand up and tell Congress that we don’t want any further degradation of our Constitution, then we will deserve whatever consequences follow.  But remember this, if we allow Congress to ramrod these  mandates, we will also be responsible for inflicting these mandates on generations yet unborn!

CRIME

WILL BANNING GUNS STOP HOMICIDES? STATS FROM ENGLAND AND AUSTRALIA SHOW…

The debate on gun control is only gaining momentum. On Thursday, Senator Diane Feinstein outlined her plans to introduce sweeping legislation that includes fingerprinting and registration of all those who currently own so-called semi-automatic “assault” weapons.

Those in favor of a total ban on firearms often point to countries like England and Australia where firearms are banned or virtually impossible to possess. A look into the statistics might offer some clarity, though, about how safe such a move actually makes a country.

Let’s start at home. From 2009 to 2011, homicides overall declined slightly according to a 2011 Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report, with a corresponding drop in homicides by firearms.

In fact, the report says homicide is not among the top 15 leading causes of death in America. (As recently as 2009, the CDC reported that homicide was in the top 15 at #15.) Instead:

  • Accidents (unintentional deaths) were #5 and Suicide (intentional harm) has held solid as the 10th leading cause of death for several years.
  • The stats from 2009 show that homicides totaled 16,799, with 11,493 of those attributed to guns.
  • During that same year, motor vehicle deaths were nearly triple that of gun-related deaths — 34,485 vs. 11,493.
  • Death from accidental falls totaled 24,792, almost double the firearms homicide total.

The stats for gun deaths have actually shown some significant declines in the past two decades.

Homicide and Gun Statistics from England and Australia Show Banning Guns Doesnt Work

Looking at the above graph, it is worth noting that deaths caused by “other guns” has been relatively flat since 1985. The assault weapons ban was in place from 1994-2004.

And what about the argument most often made by the Left quoting the success of oppressive gun laws in countries like Australia and England? A recent opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal by Joyce Lee Malcolm shows that argument to be hollow: “After a school massacre, the U.K. banned handguns in 1998. A decade later, handgun crime has doubled.”

Malcom’s article details what happened after Australia banned many guns following a 1996 mass murder of 35 people by a madman with assault rifles. The country tightened registration laws, banned assault rifles, pump-action shotguns, and also forced a buy back of more than 600,000 guns. What effect did this have on crime?

“A 2003 study published by the Brookings Institution, found homicides “continued a modest decline” since 1997. They concluded that the impact of the National Firearms Agreement was “relatively small,” with the daily rate of firearms homicides declining 3.2%.”

During the same period in America, deaths attributed to firearms dropped by nearly ten times the decline seen in Australia. Restricting or confiscating handguns seems to have had almost no effect on homicides in Australia and the stats also show that the law had no real effect on suicides.

“Suicides with firearms went down but suicides by other means went up,” Malcom notes.

And what about the oft-cited British gun laws? Have they done the job?

Restrictive gun laws have been around for almost 100 years in England, and Malcolm reports that getting a permit requires proving to police that you have a “good reason” for needing a gun. Self defense is not considered to be a good reason in England. Following a 1987 shooting in the British town of Hungerford, the Brits enacted stricter controls. And in 1998, a near-total ban on gun ownership followed another mass shooting. Were these moves a success?

Within a decade of the handgun ban and the confiscation of handguns from registered owners, crime with handguns had doubled according to British government crime reports. Gun crime, not a serious problem in the past, now is. Armed street gangs have some British police carrying guns for the first time.

There is little doubt that the Senate will soon put forth new legislation regarding gun ownership, especially as it relates to so-called assault weapons. However, those making the argument that banning guns has worked in places like Australia and England might be advised to check the statistics or risk looking foolish if they encounter someone armed with the facts.

Benghazi Gate – Bogus Benghazi Punishments – Wake Up America!!!!

December 26, 2012 in Uncategorized

BogusA State Department security chief who was said to have resigned last week after the release of a scathing report about security lapses at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in the run-up to the terror attack that killed four Americans reportedly is still on the department’s payroll.

The New York Post –  reports that Eric Boswell, the assistant secretary of state for diplomatic  security, has not resigned from the department, as a State Department  spokeswoman indicated Dec. 19. Boswell is instead just “switching desks,”  according to the report.

Three other State Department officials, including Charlene Lamb, the deputy  assistant secretary responsible for embassy security, were placed on  administrative leave after the release of the report. However, according to the  Post they are expected to return.

The State Department-ordered investigation of the attack found that “systemic  failures” had left the consulate facility in Libya inadequately  protected.

The report, which was presented to Congress by an independent review board on  Dec. 18, also concluded that no protest preceded the attack, despite earlier  claims made by the Obama administration.

The State Department responded to the New York Post’s questions about the  employment status of Boswell and other officials by reissuing an earlier  statement confirming Boswell’s decision to resign.

NRA Press Conference Regarding The Newtown Massacre

December 21, 2012 in Uncategorized

Wayne LaPierre,  Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association, again calls for a policeman in every school.

 

Was Adam Lanza on PSYCH MEDS That Have Been Linked To 90% of School shootings?

December 19, 2012 in Uncategorized

President Obama and his minions have been pushing the United Nations Treaty on Gun Control, but had been running into heavy opposition to gutting our 2nd Amendment.

But this scheming Socialist Ideologue  had  the  monumental Newtown tragedy thrust into his conspiratorial hands. And he hasn’t wasted a nanosecond manipulating this horrific heartbreak into his distorted political agenda.

An agenda,  whose aim has always included subversion of our Constitution’s Second Amendment right to bear arms.  It’s Obama’s Way or the Highway, much like his attempt to  castigate Cambridge, Mass., Sgt. James Crowley for his arrest of Henry Louis Gates in July 2009.

Obama’s mantra, which he adopted from his good friend and former White House Chief of Staff “Rahmbo” take no prisoners Rahm Emanuel, is “never let a serious crisis or tragedy go to waste.

Consequently, in order to demonize lawful procession of   weapons, Obama is now  SPECIOUSLY equating ASSAULT-Firearms  with SEMI-AUTOMATIC Firearms in his press conferences with the clear intent of confusing and confounding public perception so that they will be banned. SEMI-AUTOMATIC Firearms do not automatically fire an additional round until the trigger is released and re-pressed by the person firing the weapon.  

The fact is that nearly 75% of ALL Firearms sold and owned in America today are SEMI-AUTOMATIC .  Therefore,  you can deduce that Obama wants to ban the majority of firearms. If he wishes to do so, the courts have held that the Constitution must be amended.

But wait, Obama believes that he is the Messiah and that he can violate our Constitution at will.

In a December 5th www. Breitbart.com story, Ken Klukowski wrote, ”  President Barack Obama made headlines months ago when he installed controversial nominees to key government positions, bypassing the U.S. Senate by declaring the Senate in recess so that Senate confirmation was not needed. Today a federal appeals court signaled that it might rule Obama’s move unconstitutional, and remove those officials from power.”

Like the Cambridge episode, the recess appointment action and countless  other  impulsive acts, Obama’s Rush to fulfill his ideological agenda  has resulted in irreparable harm to our citizenry and to our Constitution. It has also all too often resulted in the misappropriation of facts.  WND , in an exclusive story state that psychological medications  have been “linked to 90% of School Shooting” and that “it’s likely that problems for Lanza began with “getting tangled up” with psychiatric medicine.”

 

It’s up to YOU. Don’t remain silent while another Obamanation is perpetrated against OUR Constitutional Rights. Call your Representatives and your Senators and tell them that this rush to judgement is premature!

 

WND EXCLUSIVE

PSYCH MEDS LINKED TO 90% OF SCHOOL SHOOTINGS

Expert: Psychiatric drugs likely cause of Lanza’s extreme violence

NEW YORK – From the moment news emerged Friday that a young man had carried out a horrific massacre of elementary-school children, politicians from local city halls to the White House have been restoking the age-old push for more gun control. While guns have been a common denominator in mass slayings at schools by teens, there’s another familiar element that seems increasingly to be minimized.

Some 90 percent of school shootings over more than a decade have been linked to a widely prescribed type of antidepressant called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRIs, according to British psychiatrist Dr. David Healy, a founder of RxISK.org, an independent website for researching and reporting on prescription drugs.

Though there has been no definitive confirmation that drugs played a role in the Newtown, Conn., assault, that killed 20 children and six adults, media have cited family members and acquaintances saying suspect Adam Lanza was taking prescription medication to treat “a neurological-development disorder,” possibly Aspergers.

Healy cautioned that the public needs “to wait to find out what Adam Lanza was on, and whether his behavior does fit the template of a treatment-induced problem.”

However, in an email to WND, he said he suspected prescribed psychiatric medications was the cause of Lanza’s violent behavior.

Healy said that while the public waits to learn more about Lanza, there are two general points that can be made.

First, he said, “psychotropic drugs of pretty well any group can trigger violence up to and including homicide.”

“Second, the advocates of treatment claim both that it is the illness and not the drugs that causes violence and that we are leaving huge numbers of people untreated.”

But Healy argued that if this were the case, “we should not find that comfortably over 90 percent of school shootings are linked to medication intake.”

Dr. Peter R. Breggin, a Harvard-trained psychiatrist and former full-time consultant at the National Institute of Mental Health, told WND it’s likely that problems for Lanza began with “getting tangled up” with psychiatric medicine.

Breggin insisted there has been overwhelming scientific evidence for decades correlating psychiatrically prescribed drugs with violence.

Writing in Ethical Human Sciences and Services, a peer-reviewed scholarly journal, in 2003, Breggin concluded SSRI drugs could be a factor in suicide, violence and other forms of extreme abnormal behavior, as evidenced in case reports, controlled clinical trials, and epidemiological studies in children and adults.

Since the 1970s, Breggin has testified in approximately 100 trials, including one in which Judge Robert Heinrichs ruled the adverse effects of taking Prozac drove a 16-year-old in Winnipeg, Canada, to commit an unprovoked murder.

Breggin appeared before the Veterans Affairs Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010 in support of his 2008 book “Medication Madness: The Role of Psychiatric Drugs in Cases of Violence, Suicide and Crime.”

Breggin testified to Congress that research conducted in the medical science demonstrates a causal relationship between antidepressant drugs and the production of suicide, violence, mania and other behavioral abnormalities.

He warned Congress of the risks of giving these drugs to heavily armed young men and women in the military.

Mainstream religion

Breggin asserted that establishment media “ignores the scientific evidence linking psychiatric medications and violent behavior because psychiatry is the religion of the mainstream media, and they don’t want to see the dangers of psychiatrically prescribed drugs.”

“Besides, the drug companies also have incredible influence through advertising such that they can call the shots,” he said.

He believes the Lanza case fits the pattern of school shooters in some of the most famous incidents in recent memory, including the 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado and the massacre at Virginia Tech in 2007.

“Adam Lanza has in common with many of the young men who were shooters that they were outsiders who lived in the shadows, who deal with a lot of shame, humiliation and isolation,” Breggin explained.

He calls the psychiatric diagnoses “worthless.”

“We know exactly who they are,” he said. “They are called ‘geeky’ in the extreme. Not a single one has ever come forward with a close friend. They are alienated from their families, and they have been involved in psychiatry.”

Breggin insists that instead of psychiatric treatment, children of this kind need “more reaching out, more socialization, more caring, more involvement.”

“Our schools, our families, and our communities need to be aware of the kids who are withdrawn and violent, not because they are going to become violent – hardly any of them are going to become violent – but because these are really hurt kids,” he said.

“We can call them evil, we can call them mentally ill, but the pattern is really quite clear,” Breggin continued. “They are highly intelligent and highly withdrawn and they are all involved with psychiatry, so the claim psychiatry is going to do some good is really ridiculous.”

In many school shootings carried out by minors, court documents are sealed and the extent of chemical use is unknown to the public.

But in a number of high-profile cases, the link has been reported:

  • Kip Kinkel was withdrawing from Prozac and had been prescribed Ritalin when he murdered his mother and stepfather then shot 22 classmates, killing two, in 1998.
  • Christopher Pittman was withdrawing from Luvox and from Paxil when he killed his paternal grandparents in 2001.
  • Elizabeth Bush, who fired at fellow students in Williamsport, Pa., in 2001, wounding one, was on Prozac.
  • Jason Hoffman, was on Effexor and Celexa when he opened fire at his El Cajon, Calif., high school, wounding five.
  • Shawn Cooper of Notus, Idaho, was on antidepressants when he fired a shotgun on students and staff.
  • T.J. Solomon, on antidepressants, wounded six at his Conyers, Ga., high school.
  • Eric Harris was taking Luvox when he and fellow student Dylan Klebold killed 12 students and a teacher and wounded 24 others before turning their guns on themselves at Columbine High School in Colorado.
  • At Virginia Tech in 2007, where 32 were murdered, authorities found “prescription medications related to the treatment of psychological problems had been found among Mr. Cho’s effects,” according to the New York Times.

“Violence and other potentially criminal behavior caused by prescription drugs are medicine’s best kept secret,” Healy said in a statement last month. “Never before in the fields of medicine and law have there been so many events with so much concealed data and so little focused expertise.”

In the past six years, Healy has authored two best-selling books analyzing the degree to which the pharmaceutical industry has influenced medical doctors to prescribe antidepressant drugs to patients with psychiatric problems: “Let Them Eat Prozac: The Unhealthy Relationship Between the Pharmaceutical Industry and Depression,” in 2006 and “Pharmageddon” in 2012.

Recently, Healy’s RxISK.org added a “violence section” to its website, allowing users to enter the name of a prescription drug to find out the side effects recorded in the more than 4 million adverse drug event reports filed with the FDA since 2004.

Was Lanza on meds?

Writing for Slate.com Monday, Emily Willingham was quick to warn against demonizing Asperger’s syndrome, or autism in general, as the cause of Lanza’s violence. Likewise, in a New York magazine piece titled “Asperger’s is a Red Herring to Explain the Newtown Massacre,” Adam Martin wrote, “As the nation sets out to understand how Friday’s massacre came to pass, some are rightly worried that the high-functioning form of autism will become unfairly stigmatized.”

Nevertheless, credible sources have not withdrawn published claims that Lanza was on prescribed psychiatric medication at the time of the shooting.

On CBS’s “60 Minutes” Sunday, Mark and Louise Tambascio, friends of the shooter’s mother, Nancy Lanza, said Adam Lanza was being medicated for Asperger’s.

“I know [Adam Lanza] was on medication and everything, but she homeschooled him at home cause he couldn’t deal with the school classes sometimes,” Louise Tambascio told CBS reporter Scott Pelley. “So she just homeschooled Adam at that home. And that was her life.”

Her comment followed Mark Tambascio explaining to Scott Pelley that “friends told us that [Asperger’s syndrome] did dominate the Lanzas’ lives.”

In addition, the Washington Post reported over the weekend an unnamed former neighbor of Nancy and Adam Lanza in Newtown, Conn., recalled Adam as “a really rambunctious kid” who “was on medication.”

The story became confused when a now discredited source claiming to be Adam Lanza’s “Uncle Jonathan” told several publications, including the Sun in the United Kingdom, that Adam was being treated with the strong anti-psychotic drug Fanapt.

Later reports found no relatives who knew “Uncle Jonathan.”

Separately, law enforcement officers have found evidence Lanza played graphically violent video games, the Hartford Courant reported on Sunday.

The Express in the United Kingdom reported Monday that Lanza had “an unhealthy obsession for violent video games” and that his favorite video game was said to be a “shockingly violent” fantasy war game called Dynasty Warriors, which is “thought to have given him inspiration to act on his darkest thoughts.”

NEWTOWN MASSACRE; THE DEAD SOUL OF ADAM LANZA

December 18, 2012 in Uncategorized

NEWTOWN MASSACRE

THE DEAD SOUL OF ADAM LANZA

Pat Buchanan: ‘Not long ago, there existed in our hearts a fear of God

 by PATRICK J. BUCHANAN Email Archive

 

Pat Buchanan was twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the Reform Party’s candidate in 2000. He is also a founder and editor of The American Conservative. Buchanan served three presidents in the White House, was a founding panelist of three national TV shows, and is the author of nine books. His latest book is “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”More ↓

 

“No set of laws can eliminate evil from the world, or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society.”

So said President Obama in words of comfort in Newtown. The president was right to speak of evil, but mistaken when he called the massacre “senseless.”

For this was a premeditated and purposeful act of mass murder, and the devil that did it knew exactly what he was doing and why.

When he put four bullets into his mother’s head while she lay in bed, Adam Lanza wanted her life ended along with his. When he headed for Sandy Hook Elementary, with the Glocks and Bushmaster rifle, he knew he would encounter no armed resistance.

Before he went into that school to shoot 20, 30 or 40 children, barely more than babies, he knew his slaughter would be so stomach-turning and heart-wrenching that the TV crews would come running.

And by day’s end, the world would know who Adam Lanza was.

Lanza kept firing at the children until he heard the sirens. Then he pulled out one of the Glocks, put it to his head and ended it, knowing he was on his way to becoming world famous.

Just as Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold of Columbine are famous. Just as James Holmes, the “Joker” of the Aurora “Dark Knight Rising” massacre, is famous. Just as Jared Lee Loughner, the Tucson mass murderer who shot Gabby Giffords, is famous.

A desire to be famous coupled with a dead conscience is the common thread running through these recurring atrocities. These loners and losers want us to know who they are. And, to succeed now, each almost has to outdo in horror those who went before.

Since the news first came in Friday from Newtown, we have argued about guns in America and mental illness, but heard little about the moral sickness of our society.

Americans have always owned guns. But in Prohibition, when gangsters like John Dillinger, “Machine Gun” Kelly and “Baby Face” Nelson were notorious, the most remembered atrocity was the “St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.” Al Capone’s gang executed seven of Bugs Moran’s gang in a Chicago garage.

Yet, just two years ago, when one Washington, D.C., drive-by shooting ended with four dead on a sidewalk and five wounded, it was just local news.

Why are these atrocities growing more frequent and deadly?

We are told that it is because the guns used – especially assault rifles like Russian-made AK-47s and civilian copies of the M-16 used in Vietnam, like the Bushmaster – are all too available.

But the guns used in the Sandy Hook massacre were legally purchased by Lanza’s mother, and she and Adam lived in a state with some of the strictest gun laws in the country.

And the Bushmaster is not a machine gun but a semi-automatic, as are the 100-year-old Colt .45 and M-1 rifle used by GIs in World War II. Fully automatic weapons like the Thompson submachine gun cannot be purchased without a federal license. No fully automatic weapon has been used in any of these massacres.

Will ending all sales and transfers of assault rifles and limiting the rounds in clips and magazines reduce these massacres in malls, movie theaters and schools? Did it succeed when the assault weapons ban was in force in the Clinton years?

If assault rifles are evil things that ought not be in the hands of decent Americans, why do “shoot-to-kill” video games feature these weapons?

Why does Hollywood glamorize assault rifles in action-packed films of slaughter starring Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris and Jason Statham?

Few of America’s young have seen an assault weapon fired outside the military. Scores of millions have seen them fired on TV. Many of our movies are advertisements for the efficiency of assault weapons in the hands of good guys doing heroic deeds.

Are the folks who think America would be a better place with a more restrictive Second Amendment willing to restrict the First Amendment to stop all distribution of movies and cable shows that depict famous actors blasting enemies with assault weapons?

Not long ago, there existed in our hearts “a fear of God.”

How, we would ask ourselves, if we commit an evil act like murder, will we answer at God’s judgment seat? For He will decide if we enter what the president called in Newtown, God’s “eternal house in heaven.”

But if God is dead, not to worry. Just put the gun to your head and pull the trigger, and it’s over. No trial. No disgrace. No prison. Nothing to worry about anymore.

No voice of conscience told Adam: Do not do this evil thing! Now he is no longer a nobody, a nerd, a recluse. He is famous. Everybody is talking about him, and ruminating on what might have motivated him.

Adam wanted to be somebody. And now he is.

And out there others like him are thinking: That could be me.

Do we want to Stampede Gun Control and Our 2nd Amendment Rights Through Crisis

You Can’t Defend Against Violent Sociopaths but the Left who want to disarm law abiding citizens are using this tragedy to further their own agenda!

Stampeding Gun Control

Submitted by Terresa on December 16, 2012 – 6:41 pm EST2 Comments

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Never let a crisis go to waste – especially when it is an opportunity to abridge our Constitutional rights. This week, a sociopath went on a killing spree in Newtown, Connecticut. A 20-something-year-old whackadoo slaughtered 20 Kindergarteners and 6 adults, before blowing his own brains out. The loss of those little angels and the heroes who died protecting them is unimaginable. But the spilled blood had not even dried when the Left started screaming for gun control. Bloomberg and others instantly screamed for massive gun control. Clamors to change the Second Amendment, to invoke an Executive Order and even to kill the leaders of the NRA abound. No one ever points out that the vast majority of these deviants are on meds and under a psychiatrist’s care.

I am appalled. Yes, I am appalled that a monster killed children and teachers, but I am more appalled that the first response from the professional control freaks — the political animals across the nation — is to initiate the long-planned campaign to stampede Americans into surrendering their rights, to disarm all the people who didn’t murder anyone, and — most importantly — to eliminate the ability of the citizens to defend themselves from a whole spectrum of evils ranging from common bad guys to government tyranny.

Senator Feinstein has pledged to submit new “assault weapon” legislation, even more draconian than the last completely useless ban, the one that had no effect on crime other than to create new classes of victims. Senator Feinstein, evidently in an effort to avoid accusations that this new bill is a knee jerk response to the shootings, assures us that she has been working on this bill for a year.

Contemplate that for a moment. This “new” bill has been poised to launch for months, waiting only for the (hopefully) inevitable next horrific incident, an appropriate tragedy, to whip this “solution” out while stampeding a frightened, sad and disoriented populace into accepting yet another “DO SOMETHING!” law that constrains honest people while addressing the actual problem not at all. The senseless slaughter of 20 little ones is the perfect political platform for shoving fascist policies down our throats. The media will trot out every profile of every child and teacher who died, to engender guilt, horror and remorse and bully Americans into letting go of their guns. Newsflash, asshats… we aren’t that gullible and stupid. We certainly aren’t that weak.

Over the next several days and weeks we will see lawmaker vultures who have been perched, waiting only for enough carnage that they can stand in the blood of those children, calling for universal disarmament. These politicians don’t care about dead children except as they provide a stage to consolidate their power and control. Dead children are the “broken eggs” necessary for the making of their political omelet. Hey, too bad about those kids, but we’ve got an agenda to fuel, it runs on emotion, and we’ve got to harvest that emotion while it’s fresh.

They will carefully avoid any mention of the broad new classes of victims created by revoking people’s right of self defense and the inevitable murders that will follow. They will scoff at the thought that a disarmed populace is easier to subdue under a tyranny. And you should just accept as totally normal that a legislator will craft a law to disarm the nation a year in advance just to hold in reserve hopefully anticipating some new horror to provide the emotional flame to burn away those pesky Constitutional protections.

In reality, evil individuals will always find a way to kill. If not guns, then bombs, poison or some other concocted deadly weapon. When you outlaw guns, you strip the populace of defense. The bad guys don’t suffer at all, because they don’t follow the law. Despots dance with glee as their absolute control of their subjects is cemented in bloody stone.

From Sultan Knish:

An armed society spends more time stopping evil than contemplating it. It is the disarmed society that is always contemplating it as a thing beyond its control. Helpless people must find something to think about while waiting for their lords to do something about the killing. Instead of doing something about it themselves, they blame the agency of the killer in being free to kill, rather than their own lack of agency for being unable to stop him.

The solution to all this evil is more guns, not fewer. More freedom, not less. Less government, not more. Do not create gun-free, kill zones. Allow open and concealed carry everywhere and you will see far fewer of these atrocities. This latest killing spree is just ammo for Progressives to try and do away with the Second Amendment. Every horrific event causes their fascist blood to rise even more. They see no down side to banning any or all firearms. This has all been done before and failed every time. Every time the Left passes a little bit more, they edge closer and closer to doing away with our rights which were given to us by Nature and Nature’s G-d, not government.

As my friend Bookworm Room astutely points out, this is more about culture than guns. Our society is devolving into darkness. When you take G-d out of the equation, as well as ethics and morality, you breed monsters. Globalist Marxists have all but destroyed our churches, schools and families. We have let evil into our lives willingly, because we won’t face the purveyors of this in our culture — media, politicians and Progressive Marxists.

Obama and his minions are going to use these dead children as innocent pawns in a barbaric attempt to push their political agenda. You see it in Obama’s crocodile tears and his feigned sadness. Mark my words, he doesn’t give a crap about anything except himself and his political power. Bloomberg and the Mayor of Boston exploded over media calling for the immediate banning of guns. They were followed by a whole cadre of Progressive hacks pushing this meme. Americans dare not compromise on this. Do not allow the Left to use a crises to force further surrendering of our rights. They feel emboldened because of the elections to institute their Communist ideals and to redo the Constitution in their image, which is corrupt.

The stampeding of gun control through crisis will become a tsunami from the Left. First, they will want to ban semi-automatic rifles, then semi-automatic handguns, then all handguns, then all guns. They’ll try and do it through an Executive Order if they can get away with it. They’ll come for the ammo and tax everything to do with the Second Amendment as high as they can. They are going to have one hell of a fight on their hands. American’s won’t willingly roll over and give up their Constitutional rights, no matter what the crisis. Doing so would only enable and strengthen evil doers and Progressives.

But, in the interest of sanity, let me say that it doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t deal with evil by rolling up in a ball and sucking your thumb and wetting yourself. You don’t banish murder by swaddling the culture in bubble wrap. Making society an even softer target is not the answer. The bad guys and the crazies already demonstrate their preference for soft targets: malls, theaters, schools and so forth. Instead, let us make ourselves, our schools, our malls and other public places into hard targets. Let the citizens and public servants alike see to their own defense. How does a school shooting play out when the would-be murderer is met with ballistic countermeasures?

Until we find a way to improve our culture so that it doesn’t manufacture monsters, we must all be able to meet evil head on when it shows up. I don’t want another teacher to die trying to shield her students; I want the murderer neutralized on the spot and that requires the tools of self defense.

Remember, the Clackamus Mall shooter killed himself when confronted by a CCW holder. Shall we allow ourselves to stampede into the legislative box canyon of victim disarmament? Or shall we instead square our shoulders, accept that evil must be fought and gird ourselves to that end?

Israel doesn’t have school shootings.
Here’s a picture of a school in Israel; it’s not a “gun-free” zone.

Peter Schiff Corrects Rush Limbaugh

December 12, 2012 in Uncategorized

Peter Schiff Speaks out and corrects Rush based upon his understanding of  our Constitutional Founding Principles!

The nation that our Founding Fathers built is now in the throes of a political, economic, social and spiritual crisis. The solutions to our crisis lie in the writings of  our founders.

While Peter Schiff  hasn’t specifically labeled  the socioeconomic systems since our founding, it is clear that he is speaking to the economic philosophies depicted in the following chart.

Capitalism represents our Founding fathers believe in Natural Law and individual Freedom.

Socialism represents our departure from our Founding Capitalist Principles that began  accelerating in the early 20th Century.

Communism is  the sociopolitical- economic system that President Obama  is fervently attempting to force upon our society.

Carbon Tax Can Avoid Fiscal Cliff

December 10, 2012 in Uncategorized

Hold on to your wallets!

Now, the Eco-Socialists are after our treasure. H’mmm, a confiscatory Carbon Tax will aid us in avoiding the Fiscal Cliff? What 2d rate Economics College did these pseudo economists attend? An international team of scientists has debunked global warming using tree ring data from the last 2,000 years and has been published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature Climate Change.   

Tree Ring Study Debunks Global Warming

” An international team including scientists from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) has published a reconstruction of the climate in northern Europe over the last 2,000 years based on the information provided by tree-rings. Professor Dr. Jan Esper’s group at the Institute of Geography at JGU used tree-ring density measurements from sub-fossil pine trees originating from Finnish Lapland to produce a reconstruction reaching back to 138 BC. In so doing, the researchers have been able for the first time to precisely demonstrate that the long-term trend over the past two millennia has been towards climatic cooling. “We found that previous estimates of historical temperatures during the Roman era and the Middle Ages were too low,” says Esper. “Such findings are also significant with regard to climate policy, as they will influence the way today’s climate changes are seen in context of historical warm periods.” The new study has been published in the journal Nature Climate Change.”

There final conclusion is that the earth has been cooling for the last 2000 years.

“In addition to the cold and warm phases, the new climate curve also exhibits a phenomenon that was not expected in this form. For the first time, researchers have now been able to use the data derived from tree-rings to precisely calculate a much longer-term cooling trend that has been playing out over the past 2,000 years. Their findings demonstrate that this trend involves a cooling of -0.3°C per millennium due to gradual changes to the position of the sun and an increase in the distance between the Earth and the sun.”

 

But Al Gore, who stands to make $Billions off of Carbon Tax legislation, along with a number of  Eco-Socialists are attempting  to jam the Carbon Tax through Congress in the same manner as ObamaCare.

 

 

And a further study, which is explained in the following, further refutes Al Gore and his minions unscientific contentions!

 

The
A new study by the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change – The State of Earth’s Terrestrial Biosphere: How is it Responding to Rising Atmospheric CO2 and Warmer Temperatures? – refutes claims by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that global warming is stressing Earth’s natural and agro-ecosystems by reducing plant growth and development.  “Such claims are simply not justified when one examines the balance of evidence as reported in the peer-reviewed scientific literature,” said report author Dr. Craig Idso, founder and chairman of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change and a senior fellow for environment policy at The Heartland Institute.   “Far from being in danger, the vitality of global vegetation is better off now than it was a hundred years ago, 50 years ago, or even a mere two-to-three decades ago,” Idso said. “And the observed increases in vegetative productivity and growth are happening in spite of all the many real and imagined assaults on Earth’s vegetation that have occurred during this time period, including wildfires, disease, pest outbreaks, deforestation, and climatic changes in temperature and precipitation.”   Specific findings in the meta-analysis examining hundreds of scientific studies on the subject include:

  • The productivity of the planet’s terrestrial biosphere, on the whole, has been increasing with time, revealing a great greening of the Earth that extends throughout the entire globe.
  • Satellite-based analyses of net terrestrial primary productivity (NPP) reveal an increase of around 6 to 13 percent since the 1980s.
  • There is no empirical evidence to support the model-based IPCC claim that future carbon uptake by plants will diminish on a global scale due to rising temperatures. In fact, just the opposite situation has been observed in the real world.
  • Earth’s land surfaces were a net source of CO2-carbon to the atmosphere until about 1940. From 1940 onward, however, the terrestrial biosphere has become, in the mean, an increasingly greater sink for CO2-carbon.
  • Over the past 50 years, for example, global carbon uptake has doubled from 2.4 ± 0.8 billion tons in 1960 to 5.0 ± 0.9 billion tons in 2010.
  • There is compelling evidence that the atmosphere’s rising CO2 content – the chief reason behind the IPCC’s concerns about the future of the biosphere, due to the indirect threats the IPCC claims will result from CO2-induced climate change – is actually most likely the primary cause of the observed greening trends.
  • In the future, Earth’s plants should be able to successfully adjust their physiology to accommodate a warming of the magnitude and rate-of-rise that is typically predicted by climate models to accompany the projected future increase in the air’s CO2 content. And factoring in the plant productivity gains that will occur as a result of the aerial fertilization effect of the ongoing rise in atmospheric CO2, plus its accompanying transpiration-reducing effect that boosts plant water use efficiency, the world’s vegetation possesses an ideal mix of abilities to reap a tremendous benefit in the years and decades to come.

Given these findings, the report contends the recent “greening of the Earth” observed by a host of scientists will likely continue. Government leaders and policy makers should take notice of the findings of this important new assessment on the state of the Earth’s terrestrial biosphere.   The report can be viewed or downloaded here at The Heartland Institute, or at the Web site of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change. Questions about the report can be addressed to Dr. Idso at contactus@co2science.org.   Dr. Idso is the coauthor, with Dr. Robert M. Carter and Dr. S. Fred Singer, of Climate Change Reconsidered: 2011 Interim Report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) (The Heartland Institute, 2011), and with Dr. Singer of a preceding volume titled Climate Change Reconsidered: The 2009 Report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) (The Heartland Institute, 2009). He is leading an international panel of scientists that is writing a comprehensive assessment of climate science to be published in 2013.

Boehner Set to Once Again Cave to Obama and to Drive our Nation Towards Socialism and Obscurity

December 9, 2012 in Uncategorized

When Boehner talks about :

 “Tax revenue”  he is speaking about   “new tax increases”

 “Tax investment” he is talking about  “spending our tax increases”

 “Tax loopholes” he is talking about “taxing our deductions”

Then you know it’s all over!

 

Screwed Again!

This is Boehner’s and the GOP’s new language code  for the capitulation of Capitalism to our  Socialist Administration.

We are not going over  the “fiscal cliff”, we did that a long time ago when we transitioned from a “Judeo-Christian”  self-reliant work ethic to a corrupt gimme government-dependent Socialist ethic.

What we’ve been  fighting against now is not whether we are going over the “Fiscal Cliff” but rather whether this Administration will inflict such enormous damage to our capitalist infrastructure,  that we will slide into a Socialist abyss, from which there is no recovery.

Meanwhile, Obama and Boehner are continuing with their play acting and  will undoubtedly force a  “deal”  just before Christmas when Congress will be clamoring to get home for the holidays.

Boehner Betrays Conservatives Again, Caves To Obama And Dems On Fiscal Cliff And Debt Ceiling.

 

December 5, 2012

By 

This is exactly what I predicted when Crybaby Boehner caved and screwed us all on the debt ceiling “deal.”  No spending cuts, just tax increases and military gutting, and nothing but blame for Republicans even though they gave the Dems everything they wanted.  Lo and behold, less than a year and a half later, here we are.

Boehner is using “revenue” instead of “tax increases,” “investment” instead of “spending,” and “loopholes” instead of “deductions” when talking about taxes and spending.  He’s not only caving on the issues, he’s allowed the Democrats to take over his language on the issues.  The “leadership” in the House has absolutely and completely capitulated to the liberal propaganda on the federal budget and debt.  And his current plan?  The exact plan Obama proposed last year.  Obama’s last plan is Boehner’s current plan.  The country is about to get bent over once again.

No matter what happens, taxes will go up.  Prices will go up.  The military will get slashed.  Entitlement vote buying programs will continue to rise and strangle the budget.

And Boehner and McConnell, Obama’s favorite doormats, will tell us what a great deal we got while Obama and the press declare (rightfully) what a victory he got.  Two or three years down the road, when it all comes crashing down, the Dems and the press will say it’s all the Republicans’ fault (just as they are now) even though, once again, the Dems got everything they wanted.

And the feckless, lying, useless Republican “leadership” will repeat the same nonsense to us while selling us down the river again.

Screw the GOP.  I’m out.

Al Qaeda Sinks New Roots In Libya! Benghazi Gate

December 8, 2012 in Uncategorized

Al Qaeda’s expansion in Libya, following the successful terrorist attack on the  U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on Sept. 11, is part of a long-term  plan by Al Qaeda senior leadership, according to a seasoned counterterrorism  investigator.


“Al Qaeda’s leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has long had his  sights on Libya, and what he devised long ago was a plan to send senior  operatives from Pakistan and elsewhere into Libya to build up Al Qaeda’s  clandestine network,” Tom Joscelyn, a senior fellow with Foundation for Defense  of Democracies, told Fox News.
Joscelyn, who is well known in the  counterterrorism world for his “drill-down” on Al Qaeda operatives, said the  vacuum left after the attack in Benghazi has created another opening which has  allowed the terrorist network to “capitalize on the anti-American momentum and  to show how they do have cards to play around the world.”
According to  an August report by the Library of Congress in conjunction with military  analysts, at least two Al Qaeda operatives —  Abu Anas al Libi and Abd al  Baset Azzouz — answer directly to  Zawahiri.
Joscelyn said a  “witches’ brew” of three basic elements now creates fertile ground in Libya for  the establishment of a safe haven. They include those dispatched by Al Qaeda  senior leadership in Pakistan; the Al Qaeda affiliate in North Africa known as  Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb; and local militias which are sympathetic to Al  Qaeda and led by former Guantanamo detainee Abu Sufian Ben Qumu.
