Gun Confiscation Taking Place In Several Democrat Controlled States


http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/08/democrat-controlled-states-involved-gun-confiscation-legally-purchased-guns-citizens/

 

by Richard Anthony

“Gun Confiscation” is a term that should strike fear into the hearts of criminals, not law abiding citizens. But that is exactly what certain states like New York, Colorado and California are attempting to do with “tough new gun control legislation laws.” It is no secret that the Obama Administration really, really wants to do the same thing on a national level. Imagine what could happen if that were to take place? That means only “government” would have any guns. Australia did exactly that, and crime actually rose.

The research institute known as the Australian Institute of Criminology presents these statistics:

Between 1995 and 2007, Australia saw a 31.9 percent decrease; without a gun ban, America’s rate dropped 31.7 percent.

During the same time period, all other violent crime indices increased in Australia: assault rose 49.2 percent and robbery 6.2 percent.

Sexual assault — Australia’s equivalent term for rape — increased 29.9 percent.

Overall, Australia’s violent crime rate rose 42.2 percent.

At the same time, U.S. violent crime decreased 31.8 percent: rape dropped 19.2 percent; robbery decreased 33.2 percent; aggravated assault dropped 32.2 percent.

Australian women are now raped over three times as often as American women.

In England, they have extremely strict gun laws, and they seem to be experiencing a rise in violent crime, as well.

California is already starting to confiscate legally purchased firearms. SEE VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=mZjDgZAU6BE

Simply put, this is how it starts. This is how a government becomes tyrannical, and the sad part about this is that you won’t be any safer because only the criminals and police will be the only people that are “armed.” This is just another example of how Democrats think the Constitution is just to wipe your backside with.

https://i0.wp.com/cdn.freedomoutpost.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/schindlers-list.jpgBack in 2010 my mother was dying of cancer. I had to sell all of my guns to be able to travel from Washington State where I live to Southern California, so I could be with her before she died. It wasn’t even a concern because I had to be with her. Now here it is 3 years later, and I can’t afford to purchase any more firearms because unlike our politicians in Washington D.C., my wife and I live on a tight budget. For the first time in my adult life, I am un-armed, and this is the one time in history where I wish I wasn’t.

In Seattle, Mayor Mike McGinn is trying to do something similar but is restrained by the courts, we have open carry laws in Washington State. So what he is doing is, he is trying to convince business owners in Seattle to join his “Gun Free Zone” campaign. Thereby prohibiting patrons of businesses to carry firearms in stores where “Gun Free Zone” stickers are in the windows. Well, what can one expect from this idiot? He’s a Democrat from New York.

It is really quite frightening to me to see all these end-runs around the Constitution, but when only “Government” has the guns…that is tyranny.

Obama Disarms Americans While Arming the World


As President Barack Obama has outwardly attempted to curtail Americans’ Constitutional Second Amendment right to bear arms, his Administration has approved huge increases in defense spending and export sales. The Administration is now seeking to eliminate stringent State Department controls on exports and foreign licensing of dozens of categories of weapons and technology from the United States Munitions List (USML) by transferring control to the pro-business Commerce Department.

In spite of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) warnings this change could increase terrorist access to dangerous weapons, the Administration claims this “reform” would enhance “the competitiveness of key United States manufacturing and technology sectors.”

It may seem hypocritical to tighten gun control at home and flood the world with weapons. But since Obama was elected president, Democrats have eliminated Republicans’ advantage in collecting defense industry campaign contributions.

President Obama has tried to push Congress into passing extensive domestic gun control legislation. In Obama’s first four years in office he also used his regulatory powers for the federal government to conduct about the same number of background checks on gun owners and prospective buyers as George W. Bush’s in his first six years in office.

Declaring a national gun control crisis after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in January 2013, the Administration issued 23 executive orders directing federal agencies to “improve knowledge of the causes of firearm violence, what might help prevent it, and how to minimize its burden on public health.” According to the Institute of Medicine, “One of these orders directed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to identify the most pressing problems in firearm violence a committee tasked with developing a potential research agenda that focuses on the causes of, possible interventions to, and strategies to minimize the burden of firearm-related violence.”

It seems clear that the goal of this Presidential Executive Order is to instruct the CDC to fund medical research to “prove” that gun owners are afflicted with some pathological disease or mental defect.

The President may have been visibly advocating gun control in America, but he has been a huge cheerleader for expanding the American defense industry. Since 2008, U.S. defense spending grew by 25% to $900 billion; defense exports grew by 30% to $73 billion; and foreign licensing agreements grew 46% to approximately $50 billion.

Prior to Barack Obama, Republicans dominated campaign contributions from the defense industry. But despite John McCain’s reputation as a defense hawk, Obama pocketed twice as much from the defense industry as McCain in 2008. Over the last three elections, the Democrats have pulled even with Republicans in campaign contributions by raising $32 million from the defense industry.

But with the Budget Sequestration expected to cause U.S. defense spending to fall to $820 billion over the next three years, the boom times for the defense industry seemed at risk. This may explain the Obama Administration’s enthusiasm for defense industry Export Control Reform. Given that the U.S. already accounts for 80% of the global market for items currently covered by the restrictive USML, eliminating State Department restrictive reviews would quickly ramp up defense industry orders.

In 2011, the most recent year a breakdown of statistics are available, the U.S. defense industry booked foreign arms sales worth over $66.3 billion, representing 78.7% of all global arms exports. The next closest competitor was Russia, with 5.6% of the world arms market. The State Department approved export licenses that year under 20 categories from the USML worth $44.2 billion. The largest categories by dollar value were aircraft, $17.2 billion; military electronics, $15.2 billion; fire and guidance control equipment, $2.4 billion; tanks and military vehicles, $1.7 billion; spacecraft systems and associated equipment, $1.4 billion; and ammunition and ordnance, $1.1 billion.

Despite GAO concerns that reform could increase terrorist’s access to sophisticated weapons, the Administration wants to switch two dozen categories of weapons from rigorous U.S. State Department oversight under the USML to the export-friendly Commerce Department Control List. The White House acknowledges, “At the end of this process, we anticipate that a significant percentage of the items that are transferred off of the USML would be permitted to be exported without a license.”

It seems hypocritical to simultaneously tighten guns control in the U.S. and flood the world with weapons. But Barack Obama and the Democrats figured out that the big campaign contributions regarding guns comes from the defense industry, not individual Americans who worry about the loss of their Second Amendment rights.

Here is the solution to the world’s problems


Rurual Revolution by Dennis Prager  //  http://joeforamerica.com/2013/08/solution-worlds-problems/

bible-SunlightThere is only one solution to the world’s problems, only one prescription for producing a near-heaven on earth. It is 3,000 years old, and it is known as the Ten Commandments. Properly understood and applied, the Ten Commandments are really all humanity needs to make a beautiful world. While modern men and women, in their hubris, believe that they can and must come up with new ideas to make a good world, the truth is there is almost nothing new to say. If people and countries lived by the Ten Commandments, all the great moral problems would disappear.

Or, to put it another way, all the great evils involve the violation of one or more of the Ten Commandments.

Here is the case in brief for the Ten Commandments (using the Jewish enumeration, which differs slightly from the Protestant and Catholic):

1. I am the Lord your God.
There are moral atheists and there are immoral believers, but there is no chance for a good world based on atheism. Ultimately, a godless and religion-free society depends on people’s hearts to determine right from wrong, and that is a very weak foundation.

Plenty of people have died in history in the name of God. But many more have been killed, tortured and deprived of liberty in the name of humanity and progress or some other post-Judeo-Christian value. Religion gave us an Inquisition and gives us suicide terrorists, but the death of God gave us Nazism and communism, which, in one century alone, slaughtered more than a hundred million people. All the founders of the United States – yes, all – knew that a free society can survive only if its citizens believe themselves to be morally accountable to God.

2. Do not have other gods.
The worship of false gods leads to evil. When anything but the God of creation and morality is worshiped, moral chaos ensues.

No one is godless. Either people worship God, or they worship other gods – nature, intelligence, art, education, beauty, the environment, Mother Earth, power, fame, pleasure, the state, the führer, the party, progress, humanity. The list is almost endless. And no matter how noble – and false gods are often noble – when they become ends in themselves, they lead to evil.

3. Do not take God’s name in vain.
People have misinterpreted this commandment. They think it prohibits saying something like, “Oh, my God, what a home run!” But the Hebrew literally means “do not carry” the name of the Lord in vain.

In other words, we are forbidden from doing evil in God’s name. Only when thus understood does the rest of the commandment make sense – that God will not “cleanse,” or forgive – the person who does this.

Thus, the Islamist who slits an innocent’s throat while shouting “Allahu Akbar” is the perfect example of the individual who carries God’s name in vain and who cannot be forgiven. These people not only murder their victims, they murder God’s name. For that reason, they do more evil than the atheist who murders.

4. Keep the Sabbath day and make it holy.
Leaving the world one day a week and elevating it above the others is the greatest vehicle to family harmony and to harmony with friends.

One day a week without video games, without parents leaving to go to work or to do their own thing on the computer forces parents and children to spend time together and to actually talk. It even encourages couples to make love. It also weakens the institution of slavery. If even your servants get a day off because God commands it. That means you do not have absolute control over them.

5. Honor your father and mother.
The first thing every totalitarian and authoritarian movement does is to try to undermine parental authority. That’s why it is dangerous, even in a democracy.

Take our universities, for example. Woodrow Wilson, the first progressive president, said, “The use of the university is to make young men as unlike their fathers as possible.”

And that is exactly what colleges have been doing for over a half a century. Instead of searching for truth and beauty, the universities have been alienating American youth from their fathers’ – and the Founding Fathers’ – values.

6. Do not murder.
If people lived by this commandment alone, the world would enter a heavenly state. At the same time, the commandment has been widely misunderstood. The Hebrew originally prohibits murder, not killing. By mistranslating the Hebrew as “Do not kill,” too many modern Westerners have been taught that pacifism is moral and noble. It is neither. It is an accessory to murder, since it prevents pacifists from doing the only thing that stops mass murder – killing the murderers.

The Nazi death camps were liberated by soldiers whose job was to kill murderers, not by pacifists or “peace activists.”

7. Do not commit adultery.
Observance or even near-observance of this commandment alonewould end the formation of the underclass. No amount of state aid can do what marriage and commitment to a spouse do to end poverty and almost all social pathologies.

8. Do not steal.
This commandment prohibits the stealing of people, the stealing of property and the stealing of anything that belongs to another. The first prohibition alone, if obeyed, would have rendered the slave trade impossible.

Protecting the sanctity of private property makes moral civilization possible. That is why the recent riots in London should frighten every citizen of the U.K. and the West generally. Just as the burning of books leads to the burning of people, so, too, the smashing of windows and the looting of property leads eventually to the smashing of heads.

The rampant violation of this commandment by the governments of Africa is the primary reason for African poverty. Corruption, not Western imperialism, is the root of Africa’s backwardness.

9. Do not bear false witness.
Lying is the root of nearly all major evils. All totalitarian states are based on lies. Had the Nazis not lied about Jews, there would not have been a Holocaust. Only people who believed that all Jews, including babies, were vermin, could, for example, lock hundreds of Jews into a synagogue and burn them alive. That similar lies are told about Jews today by Arab governments and by the Iranian state should awaken people to the Nazi-like threat that anti-Semitism still poses.

10. Do not covet your neighbor’s spouse, property, etc.
The cultivation of class warfare – i.e., the cultivation of coveting what richer citizens legitimately own – inevitably leads to violating the other commandments, most particularly the ones that prohibit stealing and murdering.

There is only one way to achieve a great society, and it is not by creating a massive state that doles out other citizens’ money. It is by cultivating citizens who try to live by these Ten Commandments. They are as relevant today as they were 3,000 years ago.

Islam Is Coming For Us All


By / http://eaglerising.com/1496/islam-coming-us/

I don’t believe that what we are witnessing in the 21st century is an organized, planned conspiracy for world domination. I think that this is what universalizing religions do – they spread, they convert and they seek to grow. However, the world has never seen a universalizing religion like Islam. Islam is aggressive, it is vocal, and it has never in its history discouraged the use of violence. Islam is formidable and Islam is coming for us all.

Liberals will, in any discussion of religion, often quickly move to counter the negative of a religion with the line “But Christianity…” after which they’ll launch into a tirade of the Crusades or a discussion of the Inquisition or some of the various other crimes committed at the hands of Christians somewhere in the world. It’s a straw man argument because the leftists aren’t willing to recognize the key difference between Christianity and Islam.

The difference between the two is Scripture. In the New Testament, violence by Christians is almost never even considered. In the Old Testament, the violence is given the boundaries of historical context, each specific action had its reasons from a historical perspective. In the Islamic Quran, most of the passages which speak to violence against the enemies of Islam are left ambiguous for the reader’s own discernment.

persecution2“The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule.  Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding.  Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.

Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, the verses of violence in the Quran are mostly open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text.  They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran.”  

In the United States only about 2% of the population is Muslim, but those numbers are ever increasing. In Europe, the massive growth of the Islamic population is of much greater concern for nations with shrinking natural populations.

SEE VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=psZBaJU_Cvo

Today, Islamic violence is mostly contained to the Islamic majority world. While Islam conquered these regions of the world through violence and evangelism, the religion has moved on Europe and North America in a very different manner. In Europe, the decline of the population which demographers have been noting since the end of World War II, gave Islam a foothold on the continent. The aboriginal cultures of Europe are all shrinking, their natural populations quickly withering away as more and more Europeans choose to have less children.

Human Geographers note that the only reason the European population has stayed stable is the large influx of immigrants from Asia and North Africa. A population that is largely Muslim. These new immigrants to Europe continue to have large families, and so we see a massive growth in ratio of Muslims to non-Muslims throughout Europe.

SEE VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=6-3X5hIFXYU

Today, there are about 10 million Muslims living in the United States, but those numbers are increasing daily. We now face the same issue that Europe has over the last 50 years – our natural rate of growth is shrinking. We are increasing our population mainly by immigration because American families are having fewer children. Recently, in Time magazine, they ran a story about American couples choosing not to have children so that “they could have it all.” Our selfish desire to buy more things while not having to care for other people (namely children) will lead to the death of Western culture.

Japan was the first nation to legalize abortion after World War II, and they are a nation in population crisis. Their old vastly outnumber their young, and they are a dying culture. The Japanese culture that has existed for thousands of years will soon be gone from our planet because of demographic shift. Our country stands at the same kind of crossroads but with the added pressure of an incoming wave of Islamic growth.persecution

The United States is the last hope for western civilization… If we do not change our ways as an entire culture – the future may very well belong to the Islamic religion. How will that play out for Christians who will soon be the minority religion? One simply has to look at the Christian church in the Islamic world to figure that out… persecuted, abused and murdered.

 

The Most Important Article About Syria Ever


By / http://eaglerising.com/1523/important-article-syria-ever/

Syria-PlanHerman Cain is a very smart guy.

He recently posted a fake Facebook conversation the president had with some very important politicians.

As I read through the fake convo, I found myself laughing out loud; but as I finished, the laughter turned to introspection.

The fake conversation wasn’t so fake… it was based on reality and only slightly blurred at the edges…which got me to thinking about the hypocrisy some of us exhibit in our politics.

Liberals like to pretend that Republicans are always searching for ways to increase the power of the executive branch – which is why so many of them got antsy when Iran started “posturing” during the Bush years. Crazy Uncle Joe (Biden) went so far as to threaten impeachment if President Bush didn’t seek authorization from Congress before invading Iran.

Yet Bush had sought authorization on both Afghanistan and Iraq, so why were they so concerned he wouldn’t for Iran? Honestly, I don’t think Biden or the Democrats cared either way – it was simply a way to push the narrative that President Bush was an authoritarian incognito.

Syria ConvoWill the left gnash their teeth and wail about separation of powers if President Obama bypasses Congressional authorization to attack Syria? I doubt it.

Time Magazine points out the hypocrisy of Obama’s Syria intervention in a recent article, quoting 2007 Barack Obama telling the world that President Bush didn’t have the authority to attack Iran. Here is the money quote in all its glory: “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat.” That’s really interesting Mr. President… but in 2013 everything is different, huh?

Further down in the fake conversation, the creator points out how all of the Democrat “clucking” about how the world hated President Bush didn’t amount to much once they took the lead. Hillary famously called for a Russian “re-set”, yet our relations with Russia are worse today than they have been since before the end of the cold war. President Obama was supposed to get dialogue going with China and smooth out the rough edges of our relationship with them through the strength of his indomitable will and charming personality. Today we owe China more than ever and they are posturing for war with Japan and Taiwan… and by extension… us? When will American voters learn that Democrat policies in dealing with foreign powers create the image of a double-minded, wavering America? It makes us look like the parent who threatens to punish but never follows through because they want their kids to “like” them, when all they’re doing is building up resentment towards their weakness in their kids.

The finish of the conversation is great because it’s true. Harry Reid will always cover for the administration – that has been his job since day one of the Obama Presidency, always provide legislative cover for the abusive Obama regime. Senator Rand Paul continues to stick to his principles, even when it’s not popular with his own Party… isn’t that the kind of politician Americans are always saying they want? Joe Biden is crazy and offering advice that will get you arrested. (Seriously, it got this guy arrested.) And Hillary Clinton lets everyone know who is really in charge…

I don’t know who came up with this convo, but it’s spot on and the creator should be applauded.
