Featured Article - Gun Rights

By Bill O'Reilly - TV annalist

"Even a simple guy like me can figure out these words from the U.S. Constitution: "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." That's contained in the Second Amendment. So why did four Supreme Court justices this week vote to infringe on the right to bear arms?

The court ruled 5 to 4 that 76-year-old Otis McDonald, an African-American Democrat who lives in Chicago, can own a handgun. Mr. McDonald, a retired working class guy, sued the city for taking away his right to protect himself. McDonald was blunt. He said his neighborhood is full of thugs who threaten his well-being and the city cannot control the situation. So he, Otis, has to protect himself from harm.

But Justices John Paul Stevens, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg all basically told Mr. McDonald to take a hike. They opined that guns cause a lot of damage to society; therefore, if a city wants to ban them, it can. But that is a policy belief, is it not? Where in the Constitution does it say if guns become a menace to society they can be banned? Where does it say that?

The Founding Fathers well understood the need for individual protection. Under King George, British soldiers routinely threw Colonial families out of their homes using a bogus law called the "Quartering Act." Also, the colonists had little protection from harm because there was no federal authority and state governments were in their infancy. The Founders also recognized that armed rebellion was a possibility even after we threw the British out. So they allowed the new American citizens the right to "bear arms" as protection and, indeed, wanted the folks to form "militias" in case of emergency.

A smart fifth-grader understands all that, but apparently four Supreme Court justices do not.

If these liberal jurists really cared about gun control, they would urge Congress to pass a law making all gun crimes federal offenses with mandatory prison sentences of ten years. That would mean that any thug who carried a gun illegally, or used one to commit a crime, would be facing a ten-year stretch on top of whatever else he or she had done. You want bad guys with guns off the streets? That's the way to do it.

My opinion on gun control changed drastically when I saw the chaos in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. Armed bands of looters in boats cruised the city, taking pretty much any thing they wanted, because the local police presence had collapsed. If you had remained in town in order to protect your property, you would have been at the mercy of these looters unless you had the firepower to ward them off. That is why all Americans have the right to bear arms.

It is depressing to think that the Ruth Bader Ginsburgs of this world do not care a whit about the welfare of Otis McDonald and other Americans who find themselves at risk. For Justice Ginsburg, it is all about her liberal philosophy, not what benefits the American people.

The Supreme Court is just one justice away from giving Ms. Ginsburg and her leftist crew the power to completely usurp the Constitution. Be very afraid."

Supreme Nomination Hurts Gun Rights

While the National Rifle Association (NRA) and its members are out in the streets celebrating the latest Supreme Court ruling in McDonald vs Chicago, (where the Supreme Court just ruled and overturned Chicago gun ban laws), they better watch what the left hand is doing..

During the Supreme Court confirmation hearings, when asked if she was a Progressive, Elena Kagan did NOT want to really answer the question. AND her previous record towards gun ownership is NOT favorable to those who have guns and would like to keep them legally.

Kagan agrees with Justice Breyer's claim: "I can find nothing in the Second Amendment's text, history, or underlying rationale that could warrant characterizing it as 'fundamental' insofar as it seeks to protect the keeping and bearing of arms for private self-defense purposes."

Apparently neither Kagan or Judge Breyer have read anything our Founding Fathers had to say about bearing arms. Their intent is quite clear.

Thomas Jefferson: "No freeman shall be barred the use of firearms within his own lands."

George Washington: "A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is a requisite."

Benjamin Franklin: "Were this Union formed, were we once united, thoroughly armed and disciplined were everything in our power done for our security, as far as human means and foresight could provide, we might then, with more propriety, humbly ask the assistance of Heaven and a blessing in our lawful endeavors."

and Franklin on the subject of philosophy of defense...

"Make yourselves sheep, and the wolves will eat you."

Any US Senator who claims to support the 2nd Amendment (right to bear arms), cannot with ANY conscious, vote for Elena Kagan as Supreme Justice.

Action to Take
Contact your US Senators and tell them to vote "NO" on Kagan.

Don't Believe the Spin

When you hear President Obama telling Americans that the Stimulus Recovery is working and creating new jobs, do NOT believe it. He's preparing you for yet another stimulus and more government spending. Don't buy it any longer. He's spending us into oblivion and destroying America's economy.

The June job numbers are out. "The recovery is working" is pure Bull Crap because the numbers only show 13,000 new private sector jobs. You cannot believe whatever the White House reports tell you. It's pure propaganda.

Why? Obama is following the game plan of Cloward and Piven. He is trying to transform America alright. By overloading the system, Americas' economy will indeed crash and burn. He knows it and is going ahead full speed on this agenda while he still has the power. This explains why he's always in a hurry to pass new laws, regulations, and new taxes. He wants to grab as much governmental power as possible. He knows he cannot sustain this pace with the American people.

Obama wants to re-distribute the wealth and give it to foreign countries who are less fortunate. The new climate bill does EXACTLY THAT! It taxes you heavily for your "abusive" energy consumption and gives the money to foreign countries to level the playing field. Electricity costs for Americans will necessarily have to "skyrocket" because we use too much in comparison to the rest of the world. The net result is that we will be taxed heavily for energy. This will help destroy the American economy and lower our standard of living.

In addition, the banning of oil drilling will create American job losses in access of 20,000 jobs. Obama knows this and still wants to ban drilling. He's currently circumventing a court order. WHY? His buddy George Soros needs the oil derricks (that we are using) for drilling offshore in Brazil. You see, Soros owns a controlling interest in Petrobras (Brazil's largest oil company). Soros stands to gain billions. Oh, don't forget that Obama has loaned Brazil $2 Billion dollars for offshore drilling while he bans it here!

Obama is also trying to get full control over the Internet. Senate legislation will do just that. It will give Obama "Absolute Power" to shut down the Internet for up to 4 months! They also are passing a government take-over of Wall Street. They will have power to take over any privately held company! Plus, the new bill contains "earmarks" that have nothing to do will Wall Street.

He's deliberately taking government control over as much as he can while he still has the Democratic majorities in both Houses.

What Personal Tragedy Will It Take?
When will Americans wake up and stop this government take-over? What will it take before it is too late? America is in serious trouble. We need to stop spending and cut entitlements. Instead, Congress is doing just the opposite.

What exactly will it take to get people to care and become active? Does somone you know have to die or be arrested? What?

Home Mortgages Will Kill the US

What is an underwater home mortgage? It means that you owe the bank more than the house is valued. So if you sell your house, you won't get enough money to pay back what you borrowed. The amounts are usually tens of thousands of dollars less than what you owe. In other words - You're SCREWED! This coupled with people loosing their jobs causes the housing market to crash. The trend is for the housing markets that saw the biggest growths are now facing the most houses with mortgages underwater.

Here are the towns with the highest percentage of home mortgages underwater:

  • Tampa-St Petersburg, FL... 48%
  • Sarasota-Venice, FL... 48.2%
  • Lakeland-Winter Haven, FL... 49.2%
  • Bakersfield, CA... 50.4%
  • Riverside-San Bernadino, CA... 58.5%
  • Cape Coral-Ft Myers, FL...60.5%
  • Vallejo - Fairfield, CA... 61.1%
  • Orlando, FL...62.3%
  • Reno, NV... 62.4%
  • Port St Lucie-Ft Pierce, FL... 62.5%
  • Phonex, AZ... 63.5%
  • Stockton, CA... 66.9%
  • Modesto, CA... 70.4%
  • Merced, CA... 72.4%
  • Las Vegas, NV... 81.1%
So if you don't own but rent, then why worry? It's the economy and that affects all Americans! It's also because of Fannie and Freddie. Thanks to Barney Frank and the latest government bailout, those two lending institutions now hold about 90% of all US home mortgages. SO?

Well, with the latest Obama/Frank bailout, Fannie and Freddie have unlimited borrowing power against the United States Treasury. If they loose money because of more bad mortgages, they will come to Tim Geithner and ask for more money.

So the point is???? Don't fool yourself. The mortgages held by Fannie and Freddie can and will fail. When homeowners loose their jobs, they cannot pay their mortgages. The loans go bad and we (America) will have to make them good or Fannie and Freddie will both fail.

This is a no win situation. Our "leadership" will vote on the Wall Street financial reform package this week or next. They omitted considering Fannie and Freddie from their fix. Consequently, we can expect both of those institutions to bleed us dry in the near future.

Action To Take
Tell your representatives NOT to support the Wall Street reforms unless they include Fannie and Freddie Mac.

Another Crisis, Another New Law/Tax

We are beginning to see Obama's method of operation clearly. It's the same pattern repeating itself over and over.

Begin with a crisis. If you don't have a crisis, make one up. Tell Americans that you can save them with a new bill or law. Get special interest groups to write the new legislation - not Congress. Leave them out of the process. What do they know? Then jam it through Congress without having them read it. Use any bogus method you can to get it passed. Bribe, threaten, lie, coerce, anything, barter, promise, give entitlements, add pet projects, cheat, steal, but get it passed - even when Americans don't want you to do so.

Holding true to form, Obama is now attempting to explain that the Gulf Oil spill is the perfect time to impose new energy taxes and large government control over energy usage in the United States. Make sense? No, but it doesn't have to. It's just another ploy to raise YOUR taxes and give HIS government greater control over YOUR lives.

This is the classical Cloward & Piven strategy. You remember, they are the ones who devised the method to bring-down the US government by over-stressing the system until it crashes and burns. Sound familiar? It should! This is exactly what Obama and his radicals in the White House are doing. They are "fundamentally changing America" into what they want it to become. So far, it looks like they are headed towards a Marxist or Fascist state.

You don't believe this is possible? Look again! Since Obama has taken office, he has nationalized the automobile companies, taken-over the banking and insurance industries, bailed-out countless companies, given more power and control to unions, taken over educational loans, home mortgages, forced government healthcare on us, expanded our national debt beyond sustainability, and on and on it goes.

America, if you're not getting worried and seeing the BIG picture, then you are sadly going to end up on the short end of the stick. Start learning the truth. Start looking at the big picture of what's happening to YOUR country before it is too late. You are loosing your personal freedoms on a regular basis. The latest scam gives Obama absolute power to shut-down the Internet for up to 4 months!

America - WAKE UP! Give a care about YOUR country. Stop ignoring these attacks. Become politically active. Stop watching and start doing!

Honoring Our Troups

Here is President Obama at the recent Fort Hood Memorial Service;

Disgracing Our Troops
Look at this BASTARD! Do you REALLY think he gives a care about our troops? Rather then say something to regret, just let this photograph tell YOU the story about how Obama cares about America and it's fallen soldiers. Remember, these were the 13 killed by a TERRORIST at the military base.
