Hillary’s True Agenda: Confiscation Of Guns From Law Abiding Americans

Hillary Clinton finally has exposed her true agenda: confiscation of guns in America from law-abiding citizens. Both she and Obama have stated that they’ll use executive action if necessary to ensure gun control is accomplished. But now she’s begun speaking publicly about using the Australian model as a template for American gun control. By discussing the Australian “buyback,” what she’s making clear is that it’s not just the run-of-the-mill gun control that she’s after. She wants confiscation, too. The left seems to be in a race to see who can push this issue farthest and fastest since Obama made reference to the Australian gun grab a year ago, praising the move.

Calling the legislation passed in Australia a “buyback” is deceptive. It was forced confiscation, with a “modest cash reimbursement to soften the blow.” Anyone who chose not to accept that reimbursement and turn in their guns was subject to having them forcibly taken and facing a prison sentence. How did they know whether someone wasn’t complying? Because prior to declaring guns contraband, national registration was implemented. Once the guns were registered, it was easy to force compliance.

Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have suggested that the way to accomplish this is through executive orders, since Congress won’t pass such legislation. They seem to forget that the Second Amendment stands in the way of this scheme. But that doesn’t seem to deter either of them.

Many gun control activists falsely claim that “no one is coming for your guns.” But that’s a lie. They already have. Remember the door-to-door confiscation of guns in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005? Remember the calls for gun confiscation — by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and others — in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook tragedy?

Now, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have come out of the closet and made their true intentions for gun owners clear. But Gun Owners of America would say to them: “What part of ‘shall not be infringed’ don’t you understand?”

GOA will not stay silent and let opponents of the Second Amendment continue their plans for gun confiscation.

Did DOJ ‘Strong Cities’ Put US Under Islamic Law?

On September 30, 2015, at the UN, Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced a new worldwide law enforcement initiative, the Strong Cities Network, to be set up in certain American cities. What this actually is is the UN plan for global police, using the Department of Justice. It’s the overriding of American law by the Obama administration in conjunction with the UN, without Congressional input.

What’s the initiative all about? Officially, it’s to prevent and combat “violent extremism in all of its forms” without linking it “with any particular religion, nationality or ethnic group.” The emphasis is on inclusiveness, collaboration, and non-discrimination. Although it doesn’t mention any specific religion, using the language of Obama-speak, its goal of “building social cohesion and resilience to violent extremism” actually means peacekeeping between Muslims and non-Muslims, “mostly by making sure that non-Muslims don’t complain too loudly about, much less work against, rapidly expanding Muslim populations and the Islamization of their communities,” according to Pamela Geller.

This is a reasonable interpretation. Instead of “building social cohesion,” the flood of Islamic refugees and immigrants are destroying social unity in Western nations; yet they’re being welcomed by governments despite public outcry. And the FBI recently sent out a bulletin to law enforcement warning of attacks against Muslims by “militia extremists,” even though there’s no proof of any imminent attacks. In DHS reports, we’ve also seen the Obama administration target conservatives such as Christians, gun-owners and pro-lifers as dangerous.

Who’s set to head this “worldwide initiative”? A Jordanian Muslim, Prince Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, the UN’s new High Commissioner of Human Rights, of course. The UN is a sharia-compliant organization, and there’s been a great deal of movement toward silencing critics of Islam in nations around the world, fueling speculation that this will be used to enforce Islamic blasphemy laws. According to Foreign Policy, “in 2013, the ministers of justice of the League of Arab States approved an extremely wide-ranging draft blasphemy law that not only aims at criminalizing allegedly blasphemous utterances…but also envisaged extraterritorial jurisdiction, meaning that someone deemed to have blasphemed in the United States or Europe would be liable to prosecution in Arab League member states.”

The SCN’s stated aim is to “connect cities and other local authorities on an international basis, to enhance local level approaches” by “facilitating information sharing” and creating “new and innovative local practices.” The practical effect is to strip authority from local law enforcement as it destroys American sovereignty. Initially, 23 cities will be involved. Constitutional lawyer John Whitehead states that this is an initial step toward a global police force, which is being imposed on us whether we want it or not.

This is the continual non-stop merging of information on every level, heading toward what John McTernan refers to as the 666 Surveillance System. He also feels that as America rejects God and Obama turns from Israel, God is sending Islam as a judgment on the nation.

Pope Survives Greeting By Transsexuals And Gay Bishop

Never before in history has a Pope addressed a joint session of Congress. And never before in history has a U.S. President insisted on having a welcoming party of transgenders to greet a Pope.

Welcome to the Obamanation, where good is called evil and evil is called good.

Let me ask you a question. Do you think Obama would dare have a chorus line of transgenders welcome his Iranian buddy Ayatollah Ali Khamenei? So why does Obama insist on insulting 1.2 billion Catholics by foisting his liberal, immoral beliefs on the Pope?

Evangelist Franklin Graham posed a single question that said it all during an interview with The Wall Street Journal; asking the rhetorical question: “Is there no end to the lengths the president will go to in order to push his sinful agenda?”

In addition to parading transgender activists, Obama insisted on having the first openly homosexual bishop, Gene Robinson, greet the Pope.

Clearly, Obama doesn’t represent the values of most of America. Let’s hope in 2016 we have a moral agent representing our once great nation.

Our hat tip goes to KFMB radio talk show host Brett Winterble in San Diego, who suggested this topic for a video.

Major Second Amendment Win In DC!

Second Amendment supporters and lovers of freedom have a rare court win to celebrate, this time in our nation’s capital, Washington D.C.

A Federal District Court of Appeals there has overturned four of ten firearms provisions imposed on DC residents, partially gutting one of the most restrictive gun laws in America. By a two to one margin, the judicial panel upheld the latest legal challenge filed by gun owner Dick Heller, a DC citizen who had waged a previously successful suit against local gun laws in 2008. This new ruling paves the way for the purchase of more than one pistol per month. Also overturned by the judges were requirements for weapons to be delivered to police stations for inspection and registration, as well as the successful completion of gun ownership knowledge tests by firearms owners, and the re-registration of firearms housed in the District every three years.

Six less restrictive firearms provisions of the law were allowed to stand.

In his majority opinion, Judge Douglas Ginsburg wrote that the District of Columbia had offered no “substantial evidence” that the requirements struck down had enhanced public safety.

Legal experts suggested the ruling might serve as a precedent in overturning similar legal provisions hindering gun ownership now on the books in Maryland, New Jersey, and California.

This is also great news for those who have studied the statistics and learned the truth. Guns prevent crime. That is a surefire position embraced by Gun Owners of America, but it’s none too popular in some quarters.

As government officials bend over backwards to strip Americans of their firearms, Gun Owners of America is working overtime defending the Second Amendment rights of Americans.

Persecution Of Kim Davis Reminds Me Of Communist Russia

The recent incarceration and Christian persecution of Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk Kim Davis brings back memories of the old Evil Empire of the Soviet Union.

Historically, both the Soviet Union and the United States had one thing in common. They both had constitutions that had protections of human rights and freedoms. But the old Communist government of the U.S.S.R. was able to enslave its people through their runaway courts. Put simply, the judicial branch of their government began doing whatever their leaders wanted. They would ignore their constitution and rule in a dictatorial way, usurping the rights–especially religious rights of its people. The actual Soviet Bill of Rights was far superior to the U.S. Bill of Rights. Don’t believe me? Believe conservative U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who testified before a U.S. Judiciary Committee.

But regardless of their parchment guarantees, Soviet citizens were dragged off to the gulag and never heard from again. Sometimes a person got a day in court to feign justice; their rogue courts would virtually always rule against the rights enshrined in their Bill of Rights.

How is that any different from what is happening today? The founding fathers of the United States put in extreme protections to keep us from ever having the runaway judiciary we have today. They intentionally made the courts, including the Supreme Court, the weakest of the three branches of government. Yet today, the Supreme Court is viewed as the most powerful. How on earth did that happen? Perhaps it is because of the word, supreme, as in the very Supreme Being it attempts to usurp.

Clearly, the Supreme Court doesn’t like competition, from either of the other two branches of government or from God Himself.

What’s weird about Supreme Court opinions is that they are just that: Opinions. They are not rulings of law. They are opinions. If politicians want law, they should pass laws. They shouldn’t accept unconstitutional opinions of the so-called high court. To solve this runaway court problem, Americans need to start treating the Supreme Court as the low court they were meant to be and to tell them: Don’t tread on US or on our God-given freedoms and rights. And make no mistake about it: In Rowan County, Kentucky, there is no law that Kim Davis broke. She simply kept the oath she took to uphold the Constitution of the state of Kentucky and was upholding Kentucky law as a sovereign state.

Kim Davis took a righteous stand against a renegade federal court opinion, cleaving instead to her First Amendment right of religion and to her personal deep-seated Christian beliefs. Furthermore, Kim Davis has her head on straight as she understands that in Kentucky, it is illegal to issue marriage licenses to two people of the same gender. But for upholding the law, she was thrown in jail. But under what authority? None. Nada. Zip. Scary stuff. Dragged off to the American Gulag. Perhaps this is scariest because not one in 1000 people understand the rule of law or our Constitutional rights or states’ rights any more.

At this rate, we are on the road to letting U.S. courts rule US just as the Russians allowed their Soviet Court system to drag them deeper into Communism. Think about it. The United States is already in a near Socialist State. The only thing left is to take away religion, and we’d become virtually indistinguishable from Communism. So let’s fight this spreading new evil empire cancer from spreading in the bowels of our Constitutional Republic and not let it swallow us from within.
