Integrity Matters

integrity1The beginning of the Presidential campaign between Trump and Clinton has not been short on things to discuss and the mud has been flying at a a good rate.  This is typical of what our politics have become, a pathetic circus.  But even more important to me is this campaign, thanks to Trump’s nomination, the establishment types and the biased liberal media are really showing their true colors and not holding back.  While this seems to be helping Clinton, I wouldn’t put your eggs in that basket just yet.

The Republican Party was turned upside down during the primary season as the establishment candidates, and one snake, were crushed by the anti-establishment populism that also played a huge role on the Democrat side.  If not for the DNC’s rigged Primary system,  we could be having a full fledged anti-establishment President in 2017.  Although Sander’s being an outsider is a pretty long stretch, his open socialist ideology sure qualifies him somewhat.

Let The Mud Fly

mud1With the beginning of August right around the corner, the Presidential campaign of 2016 has come down to two people.  What many see as  “Wildcard vs. Obama continued” could devolve into the muddiest campaign season in modern history.  Trump, a successful businessman with a large loving family against Hillary Clinton, who’s odd disfunctional marriage is anything like normal or loving, will duke it out until November.  By then, we will likely be sick and tired of both of them and the whole campaign issue.

There are lot’s of other stuff that will make the news in the coming months.  Terrorist attacks will continue, with Europe on the radar.  Upcoming economic problems, more cop killings, more crime, and lot’s of other crazy stuff in a world where being civilized seems to be heading towards a thing of the past.  There is some good things to look forward too, the NFL is set to begin, which includes Fantasy Football.  As Fall sets in, hunting season’s kick into full speed and hunters will be hitting the woods once again.  I’m also planning on some fishing on Lake Erie as well as pond side locally.  Much fun to still be had this Summer, I hope everyone takes advantage of the warm weather.

 

 

Republican National Convention

RNC1This week, as we all know, the Republican’s will present their choice to run for the office of the President against the Democrat’s likely candidate, Crooked Hillary Clinton, arguably the most corrupt vile female politician in modern day politics.  But , enough about the wicked witch of Washington DC, this thread is about the convention and surrounding happenings.  Taking place in Liberal run Cleveland Ohio, rumors are already being put out that the police have stand down orders when it comes to the protesters.  Whether or not that is true, it would follow the past actions of Liberal leadership in another large city, Baltimore Maryland.

RNC2With several recent mass killings in Orlando, Dallas and Nice, France, it would not surprise me if the cops pulled back and were less visible than we would expect.  This being the Republican convention, every Left Wing nutcase will be in Cleveland causing problems, as has been the case in the past.  While I’m not expecting all the protest action to be shown on the MSM, there will be plenty of live feeds on the internet and I’ll share them for those interested, unless someone beats me to the punch.

Let the fun begin 🙂

Game Changer

dallas2Last nights cowardly attack on Dallas police officers is going to be a major game changer in the future.  While details are still coming out, this military style ambush will have a major impact on future protests/rally’s and how the police will be placed to keep the peace.  This will likely open the door to some major civil unrest at the upcoming conventions.  A sad day for America, for sure.

While we await more information about the Dallas attackers, I think it’s safe to say that the Left Wing, especially the Black community, have an issue with police.  On the other side of the spectrum, the Right Wing has an issue with the FBI, DOJ and the entire establishment.  Race relations are very low.  The economy isn’t  helping either side.  I’m thinking that this all may be purposeful, rather than happenstance.  It won’t take long to see why, as this will be politicized to the hilt.

With over 800,000 Federal, State and local LEO’s, armed to the hilt,  it’s only a matter of time before a “crackdown” occurs.  I’m hoping everyone can remember the unconstitutional actions of police while chasing a 17 year old “suspect” in Watertown Mass a few years back.  We may be on the verge of something far more deadly.  Game Changer indeed.

In The Crosshairs

tyranny1Recently I ran across an article that linked a report titled “The Militarization of America”.  It’s basically an oversight study from an organization called “Open the Books”, a government watchdog group.  For this short article, I’m going to provides some highlights and pass on the link for your reading pleasure.  For a few years now, SUFA has discussed the issue of ammo purchases, to much speculation as to the purchases legitimacy.  Once and for all, it’s time to put the speculation to rest and end the conspiracy theory.  This report also shows more irresponsible spending in Washington D.C.

militaryfedsKEY FINDINGS (FY2006-FY2014)
1.  Sixty-seven non-military federal agencies spent $1.48 billion
on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment.
2.  Of that total amount, ‘Traditional Law Enforcement’ Agencies spent
77 percent ($1.14 billion) while ‘Administrative’ or ‘General’ Agencies spent
23 percent ($335.1 million).
3.  Non-military federal spending on guns and ammunition jumped
104 percent from $55 million  (FY2006) to $112 million (FY2011).
4.  Nearly 6 percent ($42 million) of all federal guns and ammunition purchase transactions were wrongly coded.  Some purchases were actually for ping-pong balls, gym equipment, bread, copiers, cotton balls, or cable television including a line item from the Coast Guard entered as “Cable Dude”.
5.  Administrative agencies including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Small Business Administration (SBA), Smithsonian Institution, Social Security Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration,  United States Mint, Department of Education, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, National Institute of Standards
and Technology, and many other agencies purchased guns, ammo, and military-style equipment.
6.  Since 2004, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) purchased 1.7 billion bullets including 453 million hollow-point bullets. As of 1/1/2014, DHS estimated its bullet inventory-reserve at 22-months, or 160 million rounds.
7.Between 1998 and 2008 (the most recent comprehensive data available) the number of law enforcement officers employed by federal agencies increased nearly 50 percent from 83,000 (1998) to 120,000 (2008).  However, Department of Justice officer count increased from 40,000 (2008) to 69,000 (2013) and Department of Homeland Security officer count increased from 55,000 (2008) to 70,000 (2013).
8.  The Internal Revenue Service, with its 2,316 special agents, spent nearly $11 million
on guns, ammunition and military-style equipment.
9.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) spent $3.1 million on guns, ammunition and military-style equipment. The EPA has spent $715 million on its ‘Criminal Enforcement Division’ from FY2005 to present even as the agency has come under fire for failing to perform its basic functions.
10.  Federal agencies spent $313,958 on paintball equipment, along with $14.7 million
on Tasers, $1.6 million on unmanned aircraft, $8.2 million on buckshot, $7.44 million
on projectiles, and $4 million on grenades/launchers.
11.  The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) spent $11.66 million including more than
$200,000 on ‘night vision equipment,’ $2.3 million on ‘armor – personal,’ more than
$2 million on guns, and $3.6 million on ammunition.  Veterans Affairs has 3,700 law enforcement officers guarding and securing VA medical centers.
12.  The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service spent $4.77 million purchasing shotguns, .308 caliber rifles, night vision goggles, propane cannons, liquid explosives, pyro supplies, buckshot, LP gas cannons, drones, remote controlled helicopters, thermal cameras, military waterproof thermal infrared scopes, and more.
This is a very detailed report and quite telling.  Should we all not be concerned that we now have more Civilian Federal LEO types than we have US Marines?

Summer of Treason

religion of peaceThis summer looks to be one of the more interesting summers in memory.  With the recent Orlando massacre fresh on our minds, the typical political talking points and nonsense continues.  Many on the Left still have no clue what to say, as long as they don’t offend anyone.  The Right is fed up with the left and the inability of the government to do their damn job and protect it’s people.  Message to those on the Right….the government can’t protect you, ever.  Message to the Left…..you’ll never take our guns, so shut the fuck up about it.

But let’s move on from those subjects for now, they have been beat to death in print and on TV.  Recent decisions by the Trump campaign are, as usual, making the news.  This time it’s about the news as Trump has pulled press credentials from the Washington Post.  This I find hysterical.  Finally, someone reminding the media that partisan reporting isn’t really reporting, and the Washington Post is nothing short of a Left Wing rag.  It’s long time due to get the Liberal biased media to change their tune, or become irrelevant.  Here’s a link to this story:  http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/breaking-donald-trump-revokes-washington-posts-press-credentials

In another revelation that will surely get ignored by the Lame Stream Media, hackers have been busy by hacking into Twitter accounts of Black Lives Matters leadership.  Screenshots were saved and say a great deal about many things, including the possible collusion between the Obama administration and the upcoming protests at the Republican and Democrat conventions.  In this first screenshot, Mrs. Lynch is clearly named :

BLM_martial_law_1

But this isn’t what should concern anyone, as we all know these protests are going to happen and the Left will try and paint Trump as a racist, even though no one can quote him saying a racist comment (can the Left do anything without lying?).  In this next screenshot, you can see for yourself what the real goal of Black Lies Matter really is:

BLM_martial_law_2

While none of this is likely to cause the election to be cancelled, it is fun to see into the minds of the real racist’s in this country.  At least we may now know to what extremes the convention protests may be heading.  It’s gonna be a fun summer, keep your guns loaded and your cupboards full 🙂

For some reason comments have been turned off.  Working on it.

Mid May Musings

The odd weather continues.  Record snow in Maine and more flooding in Texas are in the news, while last Sunday, May 15th, we here in North West Pa had snow showers on and off all day.  I won’t go into how weather is said to be controlled, but maybe there is something to that chemtrail theory.  Yesterday was a nice day, but still cool.  I came across a newborn fawn, barely able to walk yet.  I took a couple pictures and went on my way.  It’s always nice to see the babies, cute little buggers.20160516_124859

The soon to be voted NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) looks like it will include having women sign up for Selective Service.  Might as well have equal slavery.  Not sure why we even need Selective Service, why not just a computer database that automatically includes one’s information on the 18th birthday using Social Security information.  If they can spy on all of us, why not something this simple…..OH, probably need to keep the BOOT on our throats.boots

Looking at the many reports being put out, our military isn’t in very good shape.  Along with the raping of the leadership ranks in recent years, one must wonder what the end game of this will be.  Maybe this is a clue to future happenings, like before the upcoming election.  HMMM, I wonder how bad they want to keep Trump out of the Whitehouse?  Hitlery’s campaign is crashing before she gets the nomination, as scandal after scandal are hitting the news.  Interesting times ahead!  It’s almost summer, enjoy the warmer weather (if it comes).

A Changing World

dollar33After putting up a conspiracy theory surrounding Saudi Arabia’s threat to sell their U.S. Treasuries should they be outed for the 911 attacks, it was apparent that there could be some more discussion about the life of the Petrodollar and the U.S. dollar being the world’s reserve currency.  I won’t review the theory, but the end of both is inevitable at some point in time.  Also added to the mix is the fact that Central Banks aren’t doing so well and we may even see that experiment come to an end.  That’s a separate issue for discussion and one that is equally important.  A question asked by D13The Colonel  “.who do you feel can step up with the demise of the petro dollar…..which our shale oil production has almost rendered it moot anyway…”  Let’s go with the first part, who can step in should the demise of the petrodollar occur.  Why does anyone have to step in?  We have exchange rates with foreign currencies that can handle trade and that is happening throughout the world already, even with oil.  Just because that’s the way it has been done for several decades doesn’t mean it can’t be done another way.  Prior to the U.S dollar becoming the dominate currency, the world traded just fine and life went on, I see no reason why it can’t happen again.

dollar2Trade is really not a concern when it comes to the demise of the dollar as WRC.  It’s the ability of the way over leveraged Federal government’s ability to keep their financial promises.  As we stand today, without credit, the Fed’s will default.  Is this why Obama quickly flew to Saudi Arabia after their threat of selling U.S. treasuries?  Did he know, should a mass selloff occur, that the end result would be that few would buy treasuries in the future to keep propping up the failed Federal government?  With the National debt soon to be 21 trillion dollars, which is 16 trillion or so more than in 2001, one has to ask, why has this occurred and what is the end result?

The debt will never get paid, ever.  Should the Federal government lose the petrodollar and the WRC at nearly the same time, the effects would be brutal.  The effects wouldn’t be limited to the U.S,  it would literally shake the foundation of the entire world.  But we are already heading in this direction.  As D13 said,  ” The Central Banking climate is floundering and not prospering.”  The Central bank experiment is possibly coming to it’s epic end, along with the Federal Reserve’s dominate Federal Reserve Note, the U.S. dollar.  At some point, things will change.  These changes don’t always come when people expect them to change.  So who would step up and fill the vacuum left should the U.S. dollar stop becoming the WRC (which is already happening, all be it slowly)?  At the point when it’s realized, the world may not want another WRC, because the failure of this one was to painful.  It’s all part of living in A Changing World.

Nothing Else Needs Said

COGOPNEVERTRUMP

For Your Enlightenment

Thought I would try something new and post a video in place of an article.  Enjoy 🙂

Spring is Here!

spring2Easter2At 12:30 am est,tomorrow morning,  Spring 2016 will have officially arrived.  This Spring looks to be very interesting on the political landscape, especially at the Republican front runner’s events.  The “Rent-A-Mobs” are expected to be out in full force as the weather warms.  Many of these people are simply misguided youth, anarchist’s, racist’s, and just old fashioned trouble makers.  Some will be PAID to perform their expected duties.  These people speak for the Left Wing Liberal’s who have kidnapped the Democratic Party of old.  At least the racist part has stayed in place, the rest has taken a turn for the worst.  It is time to consider counter moves before this turns into a complete disaster on election day.

This short article is to get that conversation going.  What should be done to counter the Leftist hoard’s of zombies that good, honest, law abiding citizens are encountering at these events?  While your thinking of your answer, enjoy the weekend and be thankful that we all can see a new Spring arrive!

Try Not To Hate

racist2As we head towards Super Tuesday 2 and St. Patrick’s Day, it’s hard not to see the direction of this current campaign.  The events in Chicago at a Trump rally is showing exactly how the Socialist Left want’s things to go forward.  But before we get to that particular subject, let’s first put a few bullshit talking points that the Socialist Left is spouting off about.  The Socialist left say Trump is a racist because of some of the things he has said since he entered the race.  That’s a LIE.  Why is it a lie you ask?  Because for the last 8 years or more, every white person is a racist according to the Socialist Left.  I’m a white male, no grey hair yet and I still have a full head of hair, but I’m a racist, misogynist,  homophobe, Islamaphobe and a redneck who clings to my guns and Bible.  So is Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and any other non-Socialist white male in the world.  What it really comes down to, is we aren’t all Socialist’s so we must be all things bad.

trumpIt wasn’t all that long ago that I had to ask what the hell a misogynist was.  I found that rather funny, to be called something that I didn’t even know what the hell it was.  But in reality, I’m none of what the Socialist Left claim, none of it.  What I have become is a person who has grown to dislike the more hardcore Socialist Left.  Those who want to attempt to intimidate, shout down, attack and otherwise deny others their individual Rights.  That, Ladies and Gentlemen is all that really occurred in Chicago.  This was nothing but an attempt at voter intimidation.  It will fail in the long run, because those like myself will simple no longer tolerate it.

punchWhen a person’s Rights are being dismissed, disrespected or ignored,  it is the Right of that person to enact adequate self defense measures to protect those Rights.  The violation of one’s Rights is an act of violence, because it is the threat or act of violence that is causing the loss of one’s Rights.  As kind and patient as most Conservatives are, being run over by a few punks is no longer tolerable.  It’s time to knock their teeth down their throat.  It’s time to twist an arm and come down hard on the elbow, shattering the elbow joint and inflicting immense pain.  It’s time to smash a knee, break a nose, bust open an eye brow and/or otherwise end the violence that is being enacted upon you.  Do so only in self defense.  You have the Right to defend your Rights.  Exercise those Rights.  But do so and remember one important thing…..Try Not To Hate!

The Campaign Continues

RonAs the campaign rolls on, Trump holds a 99 delegate lead over Cruz.  With Rubio and Kasich campaign pinning their hopes on their home State primaries, they are pretty much finished.  This looks like it’s going to come down to Trump versus Cruz down the stretch.  If Trump wins both Florida and Ohio next week, this race could be over.  Here’s what is coming up for the Republicans:

March 10     Republican debate in Miami Florida

March 12     Washington D.C.  and Wyoming

March 15      North Carolina,   Missouri,  Ohio,  Florida  and Illinois

I would write about the Democrat side of things, but with the Super Delegates locked up for Clinton, it’s all but rigged and over.  This short article will keep the ball rolling.  Spring has arrived early here with some great weather.  Over the next few days the temps will stay pleasant but the rain will fall.  No complaints about this winter’s weather.  Short of a few cold spells, snowfall was down quite a bit.  Hopefully the upcoming rains will help catch up on the precipitation deficit.  Stay thirsty my friends, the truth will set you free 🙂

Moving Forward

delegatechartThis morning has already been interesting as news has come out that immunity has been granted to the person who set up Hillary Clinton’s server at her home.  While details are still forthcoming, my understanding is that this means that the Department of Justice has received recommendations for charges by the FBI and have convened a Grand Jury to hear testimony.  As explained by Judge Napolitano, that is the only way a Judge will grant immunity.   There will be more to come on this as information comes available.

Back to the election process.  After Super Tuesday, things sure got quiet around here.  But it should be noted that nothing has been settled and nobody has won yet.  There is much yet to happen and things can change quite quickly.  Let us not forget that there is still a possibility of a brokered convention should no one get the needed amount of delegates.  But that’s not all that’s going on with the Republicans!

Mitt Romney is expected to say something today.  Rumors are abound at what this may mean, but the main rumors are that the establishment won’t let Trump win the Presidency and may finance an independent run by Romney to ensure this.  That of course would give the win to the Democrat, whomever that may be, which looks like Clinton today.  The establishment don’t care who wins between Clinton, Rubio or Cruz, they are all bought and paid for puppets.  This Primary season is turning out to be one of the craziest in recent memory. Enjoy tonight’s debate and let’s get excited about Spring’s fast approach 🙂

Like/Dislike…WHY?

KlinkOur favorite Texan, D13 The Colonel, brought up a good question.  So, let’s use his question and expand on it further for the sake of discussion.  Here’s what the good Colonel had to say:

Now….would someone please, prolonged commentary give me a reason why trump would not make a good president? Not hyperbole and not because ” I don’t like him “…a reason. I will start, to give you a good idea. I do not think Cruz would make a good President because of his stance on the international issues. I believe that his personality will signal weakness and indecisiveness to foreign leaders the same as Obama’s. I believe that he lacks the fundamental economic prowess to understand debt to equity and the balanced budget. While in Texas, he did not believe that Texas should have a constitutional requirement to have a forced balanced budget. He was also against the line item veto, which the Texas governor has. On the other hand, he did not walk lock step with the RINOS and the established republicans in Washington….which is why he does not have and support.

Rubio has a stance on immigration of which I could never agree………..

Great question Colonel.  One that deserves an answer form those who dislike him.  But lets take it further, why do you like the candidate that you like?  What don’t you like about the other candidates not named Trump?  This thread will also serve us well for Super Tuesday  :)  :D  :D 😀

The Gun Grabber’s Medusa

gg11With the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, hundreds of articles have post published discussing the fear of 2nd Amendment challenges that would happen to hit a Supreme Court with 5 Liberal Judges on board.  While I think that they were seriously jumping the gun on the matter, it isn’t a surprise that the Liberal Left would love to disarm every law abiding American in the country.  Some of them have even said so, quite clearly.  Michael Bloomberg and his gun grabbing lobbyist’s are always out trying to get State level legislation passed to further erode the guaranteed Rights written in the Bill of Rights.  The Left will claim that the 2nd Amendment isn’t all inclusive and should have restrictions (which it has, Nationally).  Too bad they don’t think the same way about abortion, which is based on a SCOTUS decision, not a law or Amendment.

One of the long debunked arguments we hear concerns the militia language in the first part of the Amendment……

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,

When Bubbles Burst

slowdownWe all can see how the economy is slowing down.  Gas consumption is down to 1995 levels,  The Baltic Dry Index is at it’s lowest levels EVER and commodity prices have tanked.  So whats really going on?  There is a trend that’s been happening since 1999 that is quite interesting.  These trends could be an indicator of our future economy, as in THIS YEAR because it precedes the election of new President.  So let me explain.

In 1999, all was great.  The Dot Com industry was making millions for people and the NASDAQ was booming.  In February of 2000, the Federal Reserve began raising interest rates, towards the highest since 1995.  At the same time, the economy was slowing.  A poor holiday shopping return in 1999 disappointed the Dot Com industry.  On the 12th of April the NASDAQ dropped 386 points, at the time, the lowest one day drop in history.  By the time newly elected President G.W. Bush entered office, the NASDAQ had lost 60% of it’s value, erasing 7 trillion dollar in wealth.  The Dot Com bubble was fueled by the Main Stream Media, the so called experts and even the Chairman of the Federal Reserve.dotcom 1

The Dot Com stock bubble was an asset that that turned into a bubble which popped shortly before the elections of G.W. Bush.  This provides some clues for a trend.  Let’s look at the facts:

  1.   A bubble (of assets)  emerges and grows on very low Federal Reserve interest rates.

  2.  Experts, the media and the Chairman of the Federal Reserve say’s everything is fine and growth will continue.

  3.  The Federal Reserve raises interest rates.

  4.  The economy begins to slow down

  5.  The Dot Com bubble bursts just before the Presidential election, G.W. Bush’s first term.

The Future of Cash

moneyCash is king!  That’s what many here have said more than once.  Cash, or fiat, is something that is a requirement for a free nation to remain free.  Read that again, because it’s a strong statement.  Without cash, would one really be free?  Some of the oldest of conspiracy theories stated that the future with a One World Government would be a cashless society.  Why?  Control, that’s why.  Each and everyday we are bombarded with bureaucratic nonsense that is really nothing more than attempts at control.  Now, the banksters are joining in on that very thing.

[T]he introduction of a cashless society empowers central banks greatly. A cashless society, after all, not only makes things like negative interest rates possible, it transfers absolute control of the money supply to the central bank, mostly by turning it into a universal banker that competes directly with private banks for public deposits. All digital deposits become base money.

Now, banksters around the world are calling for the abolition of cash. Last month, Norway’s largest bank, DNB, called for the country to stop using cash to reduce black market sales and crimes such as money laundering. “There are so many dangers and disadvantages associated with cash, we have concluded that it should be phased out,” DNB executive Trond Bentestuen said.

The CEO of Deutsche Bank calls cash “terribly inefficient and expensive.” A recent Bloomberg  article called cash and coins “dirty and dangerous, unwieldy and expensive, antiquated and so very analog.”

This is the part where we pear into the rabbit hole, because there are dots that can be followed, little statements being made, that can lead to the masses accepting a cashless society.  Let’s begin by statements made by Donald Trump concerning the destruction of ISIS.  Paraphrasing, ” We will take their oil and we will take their money “.  That sounds great, but it is also saying a few things.  If their money can be controlled, so can they.  Terrorism, a perfect excuse for a cashless society.

What is Life Worth?

thW32AMFDZThe good Colonel brought up a scenario where an individual chemist invented a drug that saved lives and how that drug should be made available to the public.  Without going into details, not long ago, the inventor of a lifesaving drug raised the price 1000% overnight, making it unaffordable for most.  This provides for a interesting experiment into the ideology of the Left and the Right.  The following parameters for this exercise is as follows:

A small company trying to find a cure for the common cold stumbles upon a drug that kills a form of cancer that is 100% fatal.  No other cures have worked and this small pill, taken only 3 times, cures the cancer completely.  It doesn’t work on any other disease and is about to be available to those few people who get this deadly form of cancer.  On average, this form of cancer affects less than 100 people a year and the disease is limited to only one race of people (which will remain nameless).  The company has decided to charge 1 million dollars per pill.

Due to the high cost of this drug, insurance companies have already stated that they will not cover it.  Most in government show some form of outrage and claim it’s now a problem that needs fixed.  But this also poses a problem, because the chemical is so secret and the only way to get this drug is to go to the companies private compound and remain until the cure is complete.  The cured cannot leave until the drug is completely out of the bloodstream and must sign a nondisclosure agreement.  They can’t talk about anything that occurred during their stay.

So there you have it.  Along with all the other stuff we talk about, what would you do to change this scenario and how would you go about getting the change, if any.

Presidential Primaries

th21A0P14UWith the last Republican debate occurring tonight, there are a lot of stories that are unfolding on both sides of the political paradigm.  Will FOX News cave in and chase Megan Kelly off the stage so Trump will get on it tonight?  Will money talk?  The storylines are plentiful on the Democrat side too.  Will Hillary face charges for mishandling classified information?  With a recent video surfacing of a State Department employee talking about Blackberries and have the kind of information on them that would “never see an unsecured server” things are likely to get interesting.  I’ll update this article with that video soon.  This will be short, just to get a new thread started for the upcoming discussions.  Let the debates continue!

UPDATE! Burns, Oregon

It’s time for a new thread, so we will revisit the Constitutional issues later.  In the mean time, I thought I would throw up a situation report on the ongoings in Burns Oregon and the Bundy standoff.  This comes to us from the Oathkeepers:

12622162_1664813230473069_2344731625464867450_o-800x500_cThis is a Situation Report from sources on the ground in the vicinity of (IVO) Burns, Oregon, as well as from open source reporting. This SITREP includes information from a SALUTE report generated yesterday* and is augmented with more recent information.

– An estimated 200 federal vehicles are in the town of Burns, Oregon, located at the FBI compound at the Burns Municipal Airport, hotels, and on the roads.

– Including approximately 50 vehicles at the Harney County Sheriff’s Office, we concur with yesterday’s SALUTE report that 400 or more local, state, and federal personnel are on the ground IVO the town of Burns.

– Last week, the FBI compound at the Burns Municipal Airport consisted of one modular tent, a directional microwave antenna, a “cell on wheels” antenna, and a satellite dish mounted on a communications vehicle.

– In the past several days, the FBI presence has significantly increased to three modular tents, six equipment trailers, and one to two dozen mobile light towers, in addition to dozens of additional personnel. Sources on the ground say the increase consists mostly of tactical teams, as opposed to support teams.

– Multiple sources also report that the FBI and other law enforcement demeanor has changed to “almost hostile” towards the Pacific Patriots Network.

thDKGBOF0XFor a little change of pace I thought it would be interesting if we thought about how we at SUFA would conclude an Article V Convention.  To do so, we actually have to have one and debate the issues presented.  Let me start by setting our Convention Rules.  First and foremost, the Convention will be limited to Five suggested changes from each attendee and an overall Five agreed upon changes that would become new Amendments to the Constitution.  The new Amendments can change any part of the original Constitution and/or change any current Amendments.

Each attendee can suggest up to five Amendments, with a brief explanation of why these changes would be good.  When a suggestion is repeated by more than one attendee, that suggestion will be placed in the final pool for vote.  Once a final pool of suggestions are determined, a vote will take place.  Only FIVE suggestions can become Amendments, so attendee’s will rank them in order of importance.  Ties will be further debated until a final total of NO more than five is attained.  Less than five is acceptable.  None is acceptable. So put your thinking caps on and let’s begin the First SUFA Article V Convention.

I’ll start this show with my initial five suggested changes and put them forth for debate:

  1. Federal taxes will be set at 10% for all citizens.  All other taxes and tax laws are repealed.
  2. All Federal Agencies and regulations that are NOT specifically authorized by the enumerated powers written within Article One are abolished.
  3. Term limits are established as follows, elected members of both chambers are limited to two terms.  There will no longer be lifetime benefits for members.
  4. Amendment XVII is repealed.  Article I, Section 3 is in effect
  5. Federal spending will not exceed tax receipts from the previous year, debt is illegal except in times of declared war,

There are my initial suggestions.  I as well as anyone, can change any of their initial suggestions at anytime.  Let’s have some fun folks.  Let me also remind folks, if it were up to me, the Federal government would be much, much different and this would not be needed.  For this exercise, I’m playing with what we have currently.  Have fun and good luck!22113

 

Guns- Keeping Us Free!

thMZA1BX9VAfter the San Bernadino  terrorist attacks, before the bodies stopped twitching, President Obama immediately came out and bloviated about …..gun violence and gun control.  Since then, he has issued some Executive actions, of which are meaningless at best, unconstitutional at worst.  What also happened immediately after said attacks, the gun stores filled up with buyers.  Within minutes after Obama bloviated about his Executive actions, another thing happened, within minutes, guns store filled up.  After the attack on a police officer in Philadelphia, gun stores again filled up.  This is very important to the future of this nation.

President Obama has been said to be the best gun salesman in history.  That’s misleading in many ways.  The surge in gun sales after the recent terrorist attacks have also filled up gun stores.  Together, they are leading the way to saving this nation from possibly falling into the same Abyss as all other great empires.  I have yet to speak with a recent gun purchaser who has bought a gun because of either Obama or terrorism.  Many will say they want to be able to protect themselves, but never mention terrorism.  None have shown concern that Obama and the Democrats are going to try and take them.

Since 2007, gun ownership has risen , some will say, by as much as 50 million people.  The recent surges have been reported as new gun owners also looking for some training.  New Conceal Carry Licensees are exploding and some are saying that the overall number may double by the end of this year.  While we watch the MSM, Obama and the Democrats constantly talk about “gun violence”, which is a miswording of what is going on, the people are not buying the nonsense, they are arming up.  They are not arming up to give them right back to the government.  They are not arming up to fight terrorism.

thK9NON2WXThey are arming up to fight the government!  If the next elections don’t achieve some very serious changes, this trend will grow.  The biggest threat to a corrupt government is an armed populace.  It may take another half century or more before anything serious happens.  But little by little, it’s already begun.  One day, the doorways of America may look just like this>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
