Yesterday on your behalf, I testified at Cheyenne’s city council on the record and against an egregious scheme that will place power in a small group of politically appointed bureaucrats.
This so-called Human Rights Advisory Council measure was led by (Phony Republican) Cheyenne city councilman Dicky Shanor.
The push for these shady local councils – is modeled directly after the similarly named “United Nations Human Rights Advisory Council” – and they first started popping up in San Francisco and neighboring California communities during the mid sixties.
Today these United Nations styled Human Rights Councils span America from coast to coast. And wouldn’t you know, they all have one thing in common…the United Nation’s demand for the confiscation of guns from American citizens as a “human right” for safety.
These councils use a variation of the Delphi-Method to lobby the public as well as influence state government. By using specially picked political appointees that appear as everyday concerned citizens, they push to advance support on a host of progressive ideals, including gun control.
Cleverly this is how politicians can push an agenda — then hide behind a citizen panel, when they ask for your vote at reelection time.
Too bad for them, we’re on to them!
In Wyoming, it’s always the usual suspects like Dicky Shanor pushing the progressive envelope. These Liberal-Progressives work within the confines of the Republican party because they just can’t get elected as Democrats.
Republicans like Shanor, and a Party that refuses to hold their own accountable — is the very reason we must be so critical of the recent statewide Republican fund-raising campaign dubbed – “Grow The Party.”
It should be noted that Shanor was the prior Chairman of the Laramie Republican Party.
And it’s just as it seems, Republican ‘Elitists’ like Shanor quickly find the revolving door into Wyoming government.
It’s flat out sickening that councilman Shanor used the usual tactics to make it difficult for the public to participate in the proceedings by having the hearing at 12 noon, and to schedule the hearing in the smallest room possible with people literally lining the hallway.
All while 20 feet away, the much larger Cheyenne city council chambers were empty. You just can’t make this stuff up!
Besides being a lawyer and city council member, phony Republican Shanor also works as the Chief of Staff of another Phony Republican, Jillian Balow, Wyoming’s Superintendent of Education who testified in both the House and Senate committees against the Repeal of Gun Free Zones in Wyoming.
Like the old saying goes, “Birds of a Feather flock Together.”
Jillian Balow and Dicky Shanor
So yesterday, it came at no surprise, that Dicky Shanor was leading the charge to implement an unscrupulous Marxist government scheme.
The good news is…
On it’s initial introduction we made sure Shanor’s move met hard scrutiny from gun owners.
But here’s the warning…
While the measure was temporarily tabled in yesterdays sub-committee—->Despite the opposition, Shanor stated, in open committee, that he will rework the language and bring it before the council again.
This is why I will be keeping a close eye on every move of Cheyenne’s city council as they act to repackage and reintroduce Shanor’s United Nations scheme.
Remember, as I am at the ready to aggressively push back at Wyoming’s progressive anti-gun politicians—->where ever they may be. This will continue to be possible only because of your financial support.
If you are a regularly reader, but have not become an active supporter – please consider chipping in $10 or $20, so WyGO can remain the strong voice for gun rights in Wyoming.

These pages have, for years decried how people and organizations have depended on government in order to keep body and soul together. It is indeed a two edged sword. One that, like a pendulum always swings in both directions. Businesses, like people, are subject to the addiction process.It’s time for some tough love. I can only hope that a champion of capitalism comes to the rescue.
Colt Defense LLC, the 179-year-old gunmaker that supplies M4 carbines and M16 rifles for the U.S. and foreign militaries, filed for bankruptcy amid delayed government sales and declining demand.
The West Hartford, Connecticut-based firearms maker listed assets of as much as $500 million and debt of as much as $500 million in a Chapter 11 filing late Sunday in bankruptcy court in Wilmington, Delaware. Wilmington Trust Company is listed as the biggest unsecured creditor with a $261 million claim.
Many say that Obama will never be able to defeat the enemy if he refuses to properly identity them. The problem is, Obama HAS identified his enemy, and that enemy is ANYONE who questions his authority.
A new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security this month, focuses on the domestic terror threat from right-wing “sovereign citizen extremists”. So who are these “sovereign citizens”? The government says these are extremists who believe that they can ignore laws and that their individual rights are under attack in routine daily instances.
According to CNN,
Some federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to — and in some cases greater than — the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.
It is disturbing to say the least that this administration ignores the threat of Islamic extremism while magnifying the instances when a crazy person snapped on a cop. Those people were not right-wing extremists, they are just nuts. Right-wing “extremists” are people who appreciate their freedom and the men who died to protect it. They are Americans who question why their rights are being infringed and realize that big government has never helped anyone.
The Department of Homeland Security characterizes Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists. “Reverent” is defined as, feeling or showing deep and solemn respect. So our government is saying that anyone who has respect for their liberty is a extreme-right wing threat. That is OUTRAGEOUS.
The report adds that “law enforcement officers will remain the primary target of (sovereign citizen) violence over the next year due to their role in physically enforcing laws and regulations.” I wonder, do the “Black Lives Matter” fools qualify as right-wing extremists? I mean, they were the ones calling for police to be murdered.
For as big of a threat the Obama administration claims liberty lovers are, he failed to mention them during his anti-extremism conference. In case you missed it, the conference was three days of putting America down and defending Islam.
Mark Potok, senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center said “sovereign citizen groups have attracted support because of poor economic conditions. Some groups travel the country pitching their ideology as a way to help homeowners escape foreclosure or get out of debt, by simply ignoring the courts and bankruptcy law.”
How backwards has this country become when the government is labeling people who ignore bankruptcy laws as terrorists, while praising the ideology (radical Islam) that is killing millions of innocent people?

I have great news from the Capitol, the Repeal Gun Free Zones Act now has two sponsors in the Wyoming Senate.
And after visiting with both of them, I can tell you they are committed to defending your right to bear arms.
Senator Curt Meier (R-Goshen/Niobrara/Weston) is the the primary Senate sponsor, and Senator Cale Case (R-Freemont) is the lead co-sponsor for this much needed legislation to restore gun rights in Wyoming.
HB-114 is on Sen. Meier’s desk as we speak, making it very easy for your State Senator to just walk over and cosponsor.
This bill (HB-114) passed the Wyoming House 42-17 without any amendments.
And now the anti-gun lobby is cranking up the pressure on the Senate — demanding that they not advance this bill.
As we witnessed in the House, the lobbyists have a stack of poisonous amendments ready to file in the Senate.
If the gun control crowd is successful, HB-114 will die a death by a thousand cuts in the Senate.
With your help we can mobilize gun owners via direct mail, Facebook, Internet, and using targeted email campaigns.
Remember, these Senators work for YOU.
You elected them to go to Cheyenne to represent and vote for YOU, and to be YOUR voice in the Capitol.
Make sure they don’t forget who they work for.
So please, make your calls today!
Call the Senate switchboard at 307-777-7711.
You can find your Senator by clicking here.
Make sure your Senator co-sponsors HB-114 Repeal Gun Free Zones, that is currently sitting on Senator Curt Meier’s desk.
Make sure that your Senator knows how important it is that Repeal Gun Free Zones passes the Senate without any amendments.
Let them know that HB-114 did pass the House with a 42-17 vote and that you expect the same from the Senate.
Please get your friends involved today – have them make phone calls and have them send emails.
Wyoming Gun Owners
P.S. HB-114 Repeal Gun Free Zones now has two bill sponsors in the Senate, and your immediate action is needed.
Call the Senate switchboard at 307-777-7711 and ask your Senator to stand up for you by co-sponsoring HB-114.
Tell your Senator that this legislation passed the House without any amendments and that you expect the same action from the Senate.
Another Police shooting is drawing a protest. This time in Denver. Again, it would appear to be fully justified as an act of self defense, or an act that was done in the defense of another innocent party. In this case a Denver Police Officer. The Officer was struck by the stolen vehicle that the teenage girl that was shot and killed was driving suffering a leg injury.
What the heck..? That “girl” as many are describing her intentionally used that stolen vehicle as a weapon and injured another person. That person happened to be a Police Officer. Don’t Cops have self defense rights..?
While listening to talk radio last evening (sorry but I don’t remember if it was on KHOW or KOA) a caller talked about how vicious the Officers of The Denver Police Department are. This was a Whiskey Tango Foxtrot moment for this retired Paramedic. Compared to virtually every other Police Department in the greater Denver area, with the possible exceptions of Commerce City and Broomfield, are the most restrained when it comes to physical means of containing a suspect. Indeed, IMO? If this had happened in Arvada, Lakewood, Westminster, or Wheatridge? Every other kid in that vehicle would have been shot, if not killed!
Kudos from this retired Paramedic to the Denver Police Officers involved for a job well done in a manner that both complies with common ethical principles, and professionalism.
For the “anonymous” posted about the teen’s death on their Twitter account
This was not “murder,” not at all.
But that’s what they’ve been doing all along.
As an example, the University of Wyoming’s governing body and the Wyoming Teachers Union are at the ready with an entire team of lobbyists who will stand in the way of the Second Amendment.
This is exactly how they’ve taken over states like Colorado…utilizing an army of paid lobbyists that all move in unison pushing similar ‘progressive’ values.
By being on the ground at the State Capitol we have documented the anti-gun operatives. This gives us a clear advantage.
Like in other States, the progressives have an active ‘paid’ lobbyist base here in Wyoming.
There’s a teachers association, a higher education association, a school board association. And standing with them, a municipality association, and let’s not forget the police association — all on the record — lobbying to defend their gun free victim killing zones.
Here’s the good news…
We have the ability to throw a monkey wrench in the works — by exposing every single politician who works with these well paid anti-gun lobbyists.
You see, no matter how hard they try to hide, we now know who they are, and just who they are working for.
Another example hidden by the media is — Wyoming Senator John Hastert (Democrat-Green River) who is a corporate officer in a least two anti-gun lobby groups.
And the so-called ‘leadership’ in the Republican majority says…”Our institution [legislature] is under attack from Wyoming Gun Owners”.
It’s just not politically advantageous for the Republican politicians to call out a standing Senator who is a high ranking officer in a political nonprofit — when both of them work on the same gun-control team.
It’s these same politicians who work in unison that have now created this target rich environment detrimental to their own careers.
But it will be detrimental only if we expose them!
After several years of our ‘boots on the ground’ activism, it’s now time to use their anti-gun voting records, and their anti-gun alliances (with the well funded lobbyists) against them. And do this not only when they ask for your vote during elections, but during legislative season.
There’s more lobbyist corruption…
Lobbyists from afar are part of the problem, including the NRA, who flies-in their Washington D.C. based lobbyist to Wyoming.
Dakota Moore (the NRA lobbyist) along with another (well paid) lobbyist who based in Wyoming, together pushed for background expansion in Wyoming.
Fortunately it was WyGO’s aggressive postal campaign funded by members like you that creating a tidal-wave of direct mail reaching thousands of households.
In the end there was a loud and clear message telling lawmakers “we were watching” that put the brakes on this dangerous legislation.
Of course the background check expansion bill sponsor, Senator Fred Emerich (Republican-Cheyenne) — was endorsed for re-election by no other than, Dakota Moore, the NRA lobbyist…
What we’ve learned is that the NRA lobbyist is a typical lawyer type who plays very well with the anti-gun establishment.
Mr. Moore has told our bill sponsor that they [NRA] work differently than WyGO does.
That is no lie! It’s very apparent that the NRA works differently.
The NRA endorsement of Sen. Fred Emerich — ignored important facts about the gun-grabbing Senator’s voting record.
Here it comes…
Sen. Fred Emerich voted against Constitutional-Carry in 2011, not only in his Senate committee, but additionally in all three floor votes as well.
As it seems, this is the best the NRA can do, to take millions of dollars raised — then send us a ‘lawyered-up’ lobbyist who advances gun control.
But it could be worse.
How bad would be if you didn’t know about all this damaging collaboration between multiple lobbyists?
Or, what if you didn’t know the truth about the NRA lawyer-lobbyist (that resides in the D.C. Beltway) who pals around with the gun-grabbing politicians in Wyoming?
WyGO supporters have always had an edge…
This was true in 2011 when WyGO launched a real grassroots campaign to repeal the permit requirement for concealed carry.
And it’s true now, even though the GOP leadership has fought us every step of the way since 2011, WyGO’s edge is apparent.
With WyGO on the ground, the anti-gun politicians, their lobbyist collaborators, and their pals in the anti-gun media cannot pull the wool over the eyes of gun owners so easily.
But now with so many alliances working against us — things are going to get even tougher.
And as we quickly approach Wyoming’s 2015 legislative session, I need everyone on board.
Wyoming has two choices:
1. Follow States like Colorado into the abyss.
2. We can take our position on high ground, wait for them to march in, then let them have it!
Everyone knows that in battle one must have plenty of ammo, right?
In this case, we need to be ready at a moment’s notice to pay for and deploy hard hitting postal-mailing campaigns, radio ads and internet ads.
I know how tough times are, and yes I know what time of year it is.
But I also know what kind of fight is coming in just 30 days when the legislature starts up — and this is the reason I’m asking for your financial support today.
Whatever the amount is — I’ll leave that entirely up to you.
It will be only with your help that I can deliver the necessary pain to the anti-gun politicians.
Your support will help WyGO get lined up for the 2015 session — so please contribute to WyGO as generously as you can.
I Thank You in advance.
