Obama’s Redistribution Of Wealth Questioned By 5-Year-Old

President Barack Obama’s redistribution of wealth was questioned by 5-year-old political commentator, Melody.

She uses the example of working to earn her allowance and to save up enough money to buy some ice cream.

Then before she gets to eat it, Obama forces her to give it to someone else. She opines that it’s her choice who to give ice cream to, if anyone at all.

Melody also questioned why Obama would reward Iran by giving them over $100 billion in assets back, enough to build hundreds of nuclear bombs.

Boy Scouts Allow Homosexual Adult Leaders

The old Boy Scouts creed included a vow to be morally straight.

In 2013, the Boy Scouts of America changed their policy to allow homosexual scouts in all activities, including campouts.

At the time, we were assured that our boys would be safe in tents because the Boy Scouts would never allow adult homosexual leaders in their ranks, and that our boys would be properly supervised.

Now, in late July of 2015, the Boy Scouts have changed their policy and now are welcoming homosexual adult leaders who are allowed to cook with the boys, and camp with the boys, and mentor the boys.

Keep in mind that the very definition of homosexuality defines the sexual preference of these new adult leaders.

The definition of a pedophile is an adult having sex with a child.

Two questions: 1) Do you really think with the millions of Boy Scouts that there will never be a single case of homosexual pedophilia? And 2) How comfortable do you feel with your boys in the new rainbow Boy Scouts of America?

A Tale Of 2 Shootings: Gun Control Is Killing The US

In the wake of the Lafayette, Louisiana, Grand Theater movie theater shooting, the media has made much ado about the President’s “prediction” that less gun control laws would lead to more shootings.

But in reality, it was the strict gun control laws that made the Louisiana shooting possible, according to Erich Pratt of Gun Owners of America, who gives these three reasons:

Number one: The perpetrator chose to commit his crime in a gun free zone. The Grand Theater chain does NOT allow concealed firearms on its premises — even by lawfully permitted concealed carry holders, hindering law-abiding citizens from being able to defend themselves and others.

Number two: The shooter was already a prohibited purchaser because of mental health issues–yet that did not physically prevent him from acquiring firearms.

Number three: The gunman had been denied a concealed carry permit years ago–yet he still managed to illegally carry a gun.

Bottom line: Gun control failed to protect honest civilians in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Contrast the Louisiana theater shooting to one that occurred one year earlier.

On July 24, 2014, a nutcase walked into a Darby, Pennsylvania, hospital, intent on killing as many people as possible.

But the gunman hadn’t counted on the fact that his #1 intended target — his doctor — had defied the hospital’s “no guns allowed” policy and was carrying a gun of his own.

Dr. Lee Silverman is a lawful permit holder who regularly carries a handgun. Having come under fire, he crouched behind a desk and shot back, hitting the perpetrator three times in the mid-section.

Even though the bad guy was able to murder one person, authorities credited Dr. Silverman with halting a mass shooting in progress.

Guns in good people’s hands are saving lives. But the President’s approach — which denies guns to law-abiding citizens — prevents potential victims from bringing mass shootings to an abrupt end.

VA Declaring Veterans And Social Security Recipients Incompetent, Taking Their Weapons

First, it was returning veterans who received letters from the Veterans’ Administration which stated that they were incompetent and no longer could legally own weapons.

The same plan is now in the works for recipients of Social Security, according to the Los Angeles Times. The veterans have been declared incompetent without any legal hearing, since the declaration has been made for any so-called “disabled” veteran, whether the disability is mental or physical as determined by Obama cronies.

Veterans receiving the letter are given 60 days to prove they are “competent” and able to handle their own affairs. This is a direct violation of the Due Process clause of the Constitution, since the burden of proof in such cases should be on the government. But this is the new ObamaNation.

Many of the veterans have neither been given hearings nor examined by a psychiatrist or psychologist.Then-Attorney General Eric Holder decided that anyone who works for the VA can declare veterans incompetent for any reason, including having their bills paid automatically out of their bank accounts. You heard that right: auto-payments. And veterans who question this ruling are being told that in order to have their Second Amendment right to own a firearm restored, they must sign a form that gives up all VA benefits! This is blackmail in an obvious form. To think this is the way Obama rewards our veterans for serving our country!

To date, the Veteran’s Administration, the FBI, the Department of Defense, the BATF, and the Department of Homeland Security have refused to turn over basic information that would document their actions. The government also seems to be violating medical privacy laws, since they are transferring information about veterans between agencies. Congress recently has begun investigating the issue. We can only hope they will find the courage to do the obvious and right thing: to protect our veterans’ rights to own and carry arms. No one questioned their competency to carry arms in war time when our country needed them; but now, instead of giving them a parade, the Obama administration has the unmitigated gall to pressure our veterans to give up their arms or give up their benefits!

Yet as bad as this is, the Obamanator now has plans to extend these draconian rules to Social Security recipients. In an effort to get around Congress’ refusal to enact legislation banning or restricting guns, Obama has begun to rewrite rules and definitions dealing with firearms. As reported by the Los Angeles Times, targeted Social Security beneficiaries undoubtedly would also include numerous people who may just have a bad memory or difficulty balancing a checkbook. There are over 4 million recipients who have their payments managed by “representative payees.”

And how does the Obama Administration justify such unconscionable attacks against our Veterans? Because of the possibility of returning veterans becoming radicalized by right-wing extremists so as to boost their “violent capabilities.” Obama hasn’t yet come up with a similar lame justification to deprive Social Security recipients of their Second Amendment rights, but you can guarantee he’s working on concocting something.

Please forward a link to this video to friends, relatives and your elected representatives to help get this message out in an effort to help our veterans who were there for us when we needed them. Let’s be there for them now.

While Americans Look The Other Way, Obama Continues To Disarm Military Veterans

We recently celebrated Independence Day. From that initial struggle against the British to the present day, we have honored our military veterans for their courageous sacrifice in helping keep us free.

Sadly, many of these veterans have recently seen their courage “rewarded” with a gun ban. And this concerns all gun owners, because what is happening to our veterans through the Veteran’s Administration can happen to you someday through ObamaCare.

But the problem with military veterans is not new. For nearly twenty years, Gun Owners of America has been keeping you informed about the anti-gun atrocities being performed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Justice Department against law-abiding veterans.

The idea was first hatched during the Bill Clinton administration. And it works like this:

When a veteran, as a result of a traumatic experience abroad, seeks disability benefits and/or counseling, the VA moves to appoint a guardian to manage that veteran’s financial affairs.

Under illegitimate Bill Clinton interpretations by the ATF, this “inability to handle his (or her) financial affairs” would make the veteran “mentally defective” under 18 U.S.C. 922 (g) (4), and hence legally barred from owning a gun or ammunition.

Unfortunately, another so-called pro-gun group worked with anti-gun Senator Chuck Schumer in 2007 and 2008 to pass the Veterans Disarmament Act, which codified these unlawful actions into statutory law.

WND.com reported recently that people who live with veterans are now being ordered not to possess a gun. And get this: some veterans are being told they can “buy back” their gun rights by forgoing their VA benefits!

One veteran, who is an attorney and who has studied this problem closely, said: “this is illegal and is called extortion.”

Currently, there could be as many as 200,000 military veterans who have been affected by this gun ban. It’s time to do something about it.
