Words of wisdom from and internet friend

June 9, 2016

Here is a guest post from my wonderful friend Tex Reynolds, as fine a writer as you’re likely to find, a true Patriot and a staunch Conservative. 

Huffington Post writer defends riots at Trump rallies as ‘violent resistence’ (sic)

Is this “free speech”? There is a difference between being able to speak out on one’s beliefs and using violence to quash the rights of others.

According to Wikipedia:
The right to freedom of expression is recognized as a human right under article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Article 19 of the ICCPR states that “everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference” and “everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice”. Article 19 additionally states that the exercise of these rights carries “special duties and responsibilities” and may “therefore be subject to certain restrictions” when necessary “[f]or respect of the rights or reputation of others” or “[f]or the protection of national security or of public order (order public), or of public health or morals”.

In the past seven years we have seen progressives use (abuse) semantics and twist the actual definitions of words, often using a word while meaning that word’s antonym. They use honesty meaning prevarication; transparency meaning secrecy; openness meaning obfuscation; work meaning golfing, compromise meaning capitulation; freedom meaning subservience; respect meaning disdain; and unity means division; etc. They accuse others of doing of acts that they, themselves are actually guilty.

Supposed journalists, those who should have a basic working knowledge and vocabulary ignore what it is occurring, instead using their bully pulpits slathering praise on those who would destroy America.

For decades we have witnessed the planned moral decline of this Nation.

We have allowed liberals to dominate our education system and dumb down the populace. We have allowed the eco-freaks to preserve our natural resources so that they now can be stolen by foreign entities. We have watched as multinational agro companies decimated our family farms so they could control food supplies and use those food supplies as weapons of power. We have watched politicians compromise principles and allow the watering down of our Constitution. We have watched a legal system that favors the rich, gives more rights to the criminals and ignores the victims.

We have watched faux preachers establish their private earthly kingdoms while ignoring the Heavenly Kingdom. We have watched our Country become a world joke and now we watch as the anarchists, the communists, the socials and provocateurs use violence to silence us.

Now there are people who are willing to stand up and resist the further destruction of our Nation, are you one of them? This country was founded on religious principles but designed NOT to be a theocracy. Stand up for America

About the idiot in chief and transgender bathrooms

May 15, 2016

There is a lot of concern about this bathroom controversy, and rightly so. The POTUS really stepped on his clit with this one, and that is putting it mildly.

Actual transgenders have been using the bathrooms of there sex reassignment for years, and nobody cared. Why? Because they were already “switched” for lack of a better term.

What concerns most of us are the perverts that will be pretending to be a transgender in order to further their twisted wants and desires…

The Department of Justice can do what they want, so can our idiot in chief. So can the parents etcetera of those affected.

This is how. Say, some lunatic molests your son in the bathroom. You, being a decent parent, shoot the jerk. You go to jail for whatever charges the obamanites can dream up. Jury Trial, no deals… We the people, in front of God and everybody find you not guilty, and the Jury Foreman rips the prosecutor a new anus…

Done deal!

Election 2016: Yet another dog and pony show

April 30, 2016

This seems to becoming thematic. No real candidate that is taking the nation as the top priority. Another ego contest compounded by lie after lie. As usual both sides are waving the flag, and as usual? Not a damned thing is being said about protecting the rights of individuals. Every damned solution put forward is nothing more than more laws expanding the government.

Supreme Court: Second Amendment protects “all bearable arms” – HUGE Victory for Gun Owners, Again!

March 23, 2016

We have been saying this for years. It would appear that others think along the very same lines!

Full Story

John Kasich: Anti-gun “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”

March 20, 2016

Comes word, from the Center for Responsive Politics, that Leftist billionaire George Soros, through his Soros Fund Management, is one of John Kasich’s top financial contributors.

This can hardly be a surprise.

Kasich and Soros share two important traits:  (1) their desire to mess up the Republican selection process for devious motives, and (2) their absolute hatred for the Second Amendment.

Kasich’s antipathy towards gun rights is no secret to anyone who’s watched his career.  Make no mistake about it:  When we are winning by a large margin — when we don’t need John Kasich’s vote — he’s usually there to give us a big, wet “Don Corleone kiss.”

But when the vote is close and the future of the Second Amendment is at stake, “Godfather John” usually leaves us a severed horsehead in our bed. 

Thus, Kasich famously joined a gaggle of fellow-RINO’s and cast the deciding vote to impose a ban on semi-auto firearms.  For this, he received a personal letter of thanks from a gun-hating Bill Clinton.

Kasich voted for background checks in 1993, a system where roughly 95% of denials are “false positives.” Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department has, since November, shifted FBI employees to insure that, if you’re illegally blocked by NICS from purchasing a firearm, you can never get your record corrected.

In 1999, Kasich voted to retain restrictive gun ban in Washington, D.C.  Not only that, Kasich joined the effort to pass 90% of Clinton’s anti-gun agenda as a form of “gun control lite.”

Elements of the Kasich/Clinton agenda included:

(1) Provisions making it virtually impossible to legally teach kids how to use firearms;

(2) A gun show ban (masquerading as a gun show Instant Check); and

(3) Mandates to require you to “lock up your guns.”

Had Clinton been successful in passing his post-Columbine anti-gun agenda, it would have provided a legislative platform which could easily have eviscerated the Second Amendment over the last decade-and-a-half.

But Kasich’s efforts to outlaw guns — drip-by-drip — continues to this day.

Kasich continues to be a chief advocate of actual or de facto amnesty, claiming that enforcing our immigration laws would be “inhumane.”

Of course, if Kasich gets his way, the legalization of 11 million illegals will have the same effect on the American electorate that the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli amnesty had on California. The country as a whole would become deep “anti-gun blue.”

And, of course, Kasich was one of the first RINO’s to legitimize the anti-gun ObamaCare program by bringing its massive Medicaid segment into his state.

Now, all it will take is for Obama to do a computer search of Kasich’s Medicaid beneficiaries for “PTSD,” “Alzheimer’s,” and other “mental defectives,” and the gun rights of tens of thousands of law-abiding Ohioans could be jeopardized.

And all of this was done by Kasich’s particularly nasty form of politics which he is now trying to morph, incredibly, into his “Mr. Nice” act. 

These actions, of course, reflect the hatred for guns by Kasich’s patron, George Soros.

You may remember that, when Soros launched his campaign of “exposes” designed to destroy the conservative movement piece-by-piece, his first target was Gun Owners of America — which Soros viewed as even more dangerous than the Koch brothers.

But perhaps as bad as Kasich’s anti-gun record is his determination to destroy the GOP selection process for personal gain.

Surely, even the vainglorious Kasich understands that, the longer he stays is the race, the longer the “divided field” makes it easier for an establishment candidate to hijack the process at the convention.

Polls have shown — here and here — that Ted Cruz would beat Donald Trump in a head-to-head matchup.

But by becoming the REAL “chaos candidate,” Kasich helps destroy the Republican Party by throwing the nomination to someone who is despised by the grassroots. In so doing, Kasich does the bidding of his master, George Soros.

Ted Cruz would be the natural one to aggressively call out anti-gunner John Kasich for his anti-gun record.

Please contact Ted Cruz and urge him to expose Kasich.  Let’s not let Kasich pull the wool over the eyes of American voters.

Sincerely,

Tim Macy
Chairman
Gun Owners of America

P.S.  While you cannot use GOA’s Legislative Action Center to email Senator Ted Cruz — unless you are a constituent of his — you can easily contact him through his webform.

So simply copy-n-paste the pre-written letter below into Senator Ted Cruz’ webform and urge him to expose Senator John Kasich’s anti-gun record.

—– Pre-written letter for Sen. Ted Cruz —–

Dear Senator Cruz:

Thank you so much for your strong defense of the Constitution — and in particular, the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

Gun Owners of America has informed me that John Kasich has a long record of supporting gun control, including the following:

1) Kasich cast the deciding vote to impose a ban on semi-auto firearms, and for this, he received a personal letter of thanks from a gun-hating Bill Clinton.  See: tinyurl.com/hp4ucsp

2) Kasich voted for background checks in 1993, a system which is now blocking a percentage of legal gun purchases.  Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department has, since November, shifted FBI employees to insure that, if someone is illegally blocked by NICS from purchasing a firearm, they can never get their record corrected. See: tinyurl.com/hp4ucsp

3) In 1999, Kasich voted to retain restrictive gun ban in Washington, D.C.  See: tinyurl.com/zyljbep

4) Also in 1999, he voted for provisions making it virtually impossible to legally teach kids how to use firearms; for a gun show ban (masquerading as a gun show Instant Check); and for mandates to requiring people to “lock up their guns.”  See: tinyurl.com/jq84rcd

With John Kasich deciding to remain in the presidential race, I think it’s important for someone on the national level to expose his anti-gun votes.

I hope you will continue to point out Kasich’s anti-gun positions.

Sincerely,

 

One sick puppy; Can’t this POTUS ever tell the truth about anything?

January 12, 2016

From Gun Owners of America:

The president conducted another dog-and-pony show last week during a CNN-sponsored “Town Hall.”

The president trotted out several worn-out lies, like his claim that guns are more likely to kill you than save your life.

He even had the audacity to say that background checks are necessary since we wouldn’t otherwise know if drug dealers were buying guns.

Really?!? Has the president already forgotten Fast & Furious — when his administration gave green lights to known criminals so they could purchase firearms and smuggle them south of the border?

Of course he didn’t forget, but this president doesn’t care about facts or statistics that don’t support his ambitious gun control agenda.

The United States is experiencing record low crime rates, but Obama continues to pursue his anti-gun agenda in spite of the fact that murder rates are at their lowest levels in 25 years.

Nevertheless, Obama tried to make his radical agenda sound like it’s simply a few tweaks here and there — ignoring, of course, that his oath to uphold the Constitution should prevent him from imposing any “infringements” on gun rights at all.

GOA on the Front Lines

Though the President’s media circus last Thursday night was tightly controlled by the White House, GOA spokesmen have appeared on more than a thousand media outlets to discuss the President’s agenda.

You can view a few of them here:

* Larry Pratt Debunking the “Gun Show Loophole” on Fox Business News;

* A “tense” debate with a CNN host who attempted to keep me from debunking the anti-gun liberals’ talking points.

* Plus many more radio and TV appearances where GOA spokesmen have recently taken on Obama’s gun control proposals — all viewable at GOA’s YouTube page here.

Hey Buffalo Bill…

January 5, 2016

Buffalo Bill Cody is probably turning over in his grave!

Tomorrow (Jan 6) in Cody WY the school board is having what they call a ‘special meeting’ that includes both school board members and state legislators about…guns in schools.

This meeting is so ‘special’ – that they decided the meeting shouldn’t be advertised to the public.

The truth is, they don’t want you to know!

You see, Park county’s anti-gun school superintendent Ray Schulte is working hard to ensure law abiding Citizens like YOU are NEVER allowed to exercise the God-given right to self defense.

And just what is Schulte pushing?

He is in support of legislation strikingly similar to Senator Hank Coe’s substitute bill that effectively derailed the repeal of gun free zones in Wyoming.

And this isn’t the first time superintendent Schulte has been on the wrong side of your right to keep and bear arms. The more that you see him in action, the more you realize he is aligned with Joe Biden, the author of gun free zone legislation.

Here’s the low down…

Schulte in his capacity as superintendent of schools in Torrington Wy —-> testified against repealing gun free zones in a Wyoming Senate committee in 2012.

It was at this moment we discovered that superintendent Schulte doesn’t even trust the citizens who submit to a full background check.

Schulte stated in open committee, “I spoke with our police chief and he told me there over two thousand permit holders right here in out district, can you imagine all of them being in the school at the same time?”

It was shortly after, that the Goshen School board had enough of Schulte…

In June of 2012 the school board voted against Schulte and one board member even stated publicly that, “the superintendent wasn’t doing a good job” and “his salary was too high.”

The Torrington headline actually read, “District Superintendent Ray Schulte does not have the full support of the Goshen County School Board.”

Sadly by the following year, the folks in Cody took him in as their new school superintendent, at an even higher salary of $150,000 a year.

It should be noted that instead of inviting the public to a meeting where the only agenda is about guns, Schulte invited several neighboring district board members – Now you know why it’s called a “special meeting.”

Please contact the following Park county school board members and let them know you are on to their scheme.

The Left Calls for Confiscating Your Guns in Wake of California Shooting


ACTION:  The anti-gun Left is pulling out the stops and is now calling for gun confiscation.  We have to meet “fire with fire.”  So forward this alert to ten people.  Encourage your pro-gun family and friends to sign up for GOA alerts.

And, you can also give Gift Memberships to your family/friends this holiday season.  We need your support and activism more than ever!


The Anti-gun Left Declares War on Your Gun Rights

President Obama took to the airwaves on Sunday night and told the nation we need more gun control. 

Hillary Clinton — the one who will most likely be the Democrat nominee for president in 2016 — recently called for an all-out war on guns, as well.

And then, for the first time since 1920, the New York Times published an editorial on the front page of their newspaper.

This is important because the editorial page of the Times reflects the thinking of the anti-gun Democrat Left.

And what is the theme of the Times‘ most important message in nearly a hundred years?

In two words:  Gun Confiscation.

The Left “drops the gloves,” calls for gun confiscation

The New York Times said this weekend that:

It is past time to stop talking about halting the spread of firearms, and instead to reduce their number drastically — eliminating some large categories of weapons and ammunition.It is not necessary to debate the peculiar wording of the Second Amendment. No right is unlimited and immune from reasonable regulation.

The Times continues that there would be no grandfather clause for the 300,000,000-plus firearms we currently own:

[I]t would require Americans who own these kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.

So there you have it.  You need to give up your guns — for the good of the country.

Ironically, the editors at The Washington Post are furious with the Times for letting the “cat out of the bag.”

They called the Times’ editorial “predictably polarizing.”

But as one insightful journalist noted, the Post editors are only upset because the Times’ piece confirms “every gun owner’s worst fear — namely, that all the talk about gun safety and reducing gun violence is just a sham, and the real agenda of the gun control movement is total confiscation.”

Gun confiscation has always been the goal of the anti-gun Left

Everyone has known that a Hillary presidency would result in greater restrictions on our Second Amendment rights.


Not a GOA member yet?  You can join Gun Owners of America today for only $20!


But now her mouthpiece at the Times has explicitly revealed what we knew already was the case — the Left wants to CONFISCATE YOUR GUNS.

Anti-gun radicals usually try not to say this publicly, because they know that talk of gun confiscation loses elections.

But when caught on “candid camera,” they tell you they want to confiscate guns.

Take Maryland’s Deputy Attorney General — a liberal Democrat — who was recently caught on hidden camera stating “we should ban guns altogether, period.”

Or remember when New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) said, in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, that among the different gun control proposals that were being bandied about, “[gun] confiscation could be an option.”

Or when several Democrat state senators were caught on an open microphone in New Jersey saying, “We needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate.”

This is their agenda.

Anti-gunners blame YOU for massacres like San Bernardino’s

In its editorial, the Times lambasted pro-gun, Republican politicians who “abet would-be killers by creating gun markets for them, and voters allow those politicians to keep their jobs.”

That’s what the Left thinks of you.  They think that your rights and freedoms … that your guns which have NEVER harmed anyone — are the problem because you are aiding and abetting killers.

These are the stakes we face in the 2016 elections.

If Clinton wins, we can expect her to push the same Times’ agenda, which will include the elimination of “large categories of weapons and ammunition” — probably by executive fiat.

And we can expect the Obama-packed courts to roll over and ignore the “peculiar wording of the Second Amendment.”

You have eleven months before the November, 2016, elections.

And everything we believe in is at stake.

Please forward this alert and encourage your pro-gun family and friends to sign up for GOA alerts.

And take this holiday season as an opportunity to give Gift Memberships to your family and friends.

We need your support and activism more than ever!

A Tory to the left of me, and a Tory to the right! Jeb Bush, a Bloomberg clone…

September 19, 2015
It sounds like a broken record playing from the gun control crowd — we just need to pass more laws…

Mandatory waiting periods to buy guns – leaving those who likely need a gun the most, defenseless.

Universal background checks – resulting in the government having a complete list of guns and their owners.

Background check expansion laws – designed to seize guns from gun owners on the mere word of one “mental health staffer.”

Even if you watched the Late Show from front to back the other night—->you still would have missed seeing one of the top tier Presidential candidates describe a utopian gun control agenda – one that the candidate hopes will sweep the nation state by state.

You missed it because it didn’t air – after being taped – likely because the campaign staffers who heard it decided to pull it down for fear that it would hurt the candidate—->they were right.

But this wasn’t a tactical decision by Hillary Clinton’s folks. It wasn’t that loud-mouthed gun grabber Chris Christie who said this. And it wasn’t even something that was said by the radical Bernie Sanders. Nope…

Jeb Bush, when appearing on the debut episode of the new Late Show, came out in full support of radical gun control just a few days ago!

Don’t take my word for it. Listen to what Jeb says for yourself by clicking on the video below.

Of course, Bush planted his words in his professed support for the 10th Amendment, stating that he would prefer each individual state enact the kinds of gun control, just like they did in his home state of Florida.

Worse, it’s obvious from the way he laid this out, that this is exactly what he would like to happen!

He didn’t stumble, he wasn’t trapped by a smart host, and he didn’t misspeak a word here or there. It sounded as if Bloomberg had crafted the words.

This is what Jeb Bush thinks about your gun rights!

Imagine being a homeowner in Ferguson, Mo., last year – watching your city burn – and being unable to buy a handgun to defend your family with because of a government mandated 72 hour waiting period.

Imagine being a homeowner in Boston, stunned as police chased a terrorism suspect around your city for 4 days, and you being left defenseless because some politician decided that you needed to wait 3 days to pick up your firearm.

In all of these scenarios, understand that the criminals are not going to wait around for 3 days to buy a weapon to carry out their plans to assault you or those you love.

You may be thinking, “So what, I’ve already got all the guns I need.” You and me both.

But what about everyone across the country who doesn’t? What about your children when they grow up? What about your granddaughter when she moves across the country for her first job as an adult?

Of course, Bush’s plan to change the mental health laws is designed to make it appear so reasonable that no one would oppose it.

But nothing is more dangerous, nothing is more subtle, than the gun control threat we face from a changing in the mental health code.

You see, under current law for someone who’s deranged to lose their constitutional right to keep and bear arms, they have to be “adjudicated” defective.

Adjudicated means that a judge or jury of your peers needs to be convinced to end those rights.
All of your due process rights are able to be used in this process. You can have an attorney present, produce evidence, confront evidence and witnesses being used against you, etc.

If the government is able to substitute “adjudication” for “declaration” then anyone authorized by the government can, unilaterally, declare you unfit to own firearms!

You can see now why this is so dangerous. This doesn’t affect the size of the magazine in your Colt .45 or whether or not you can own an AR-15. This just flat out leaves you prohibited from owning ANY firearms.

You’d have more rights contesting a traffic ticket than you would the seizure of your constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms if Jeb Bush’s mental health plan became law at the state or federal level!

Just last year Wyoming Gun Owners, with your support, fought and successfully defeated the passage of a bill that would do exactly this right here in the Wyoming legislature!

Background check expansion legislation was introduced in the Senate by Fred Emerich in 2014 and would do exactly what I’ve described above!

With our agressive activism, gun owners mobilized enough to prevent this bill from becoming law here in Wyoming!

Clearly Jeb Bush and his pal Michael Bloomberg want to see this same type of law enacted state by state all over the country!

Jeb Bush and Michael Bloomberg caught while working on the same team

Don’t be lulled off guard by his talk of the 10th Amendment. This simply means that he’d happily see the state government crackdown on your gun rights as opposed to the federal government.

More and more this is exactly what the gun grabbers are doing in response to the stinging defeat they were handed by gun owners on Universal Background Check Legislation proposed in 2013: and now they are taking their fight to state legislatures all over the country.

We’ve been able to stop them so far here in Wyoming.

Now we need to ensure that Wyomingites know all about Jeb Bush’s state-based gun control scheme and that Bush knows that Wyomingites won’t put up with it. Please help us get the word out by:

  1. Calling Bush’s campaign boss David Kochel and owner of the political consultant firm Redwave in Iowa. Call (515) 421-4404 to leave David a message. Make sure he knows you’re calling from Wyoming, that you’re a voter, and that Jeb’s statement on the Late Show tells you all you need to know about his views on the 2nd Amendment.
  2. Contacting Jeb’s national apparatus by leaving him the message on his facebook page. click here
  3. Sharing this email with every gun owner you know in Wyoming – make sure they have the facts about where Jeb stands.
