I Told you So

Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban

says the new A.G. Eric Holder.

Some say we will take up our guns and defend our rights. Good luck with that; those who will oppose the new gun ban will be painted by the media as crazed gunslingers, gun loons, people who want children to die of accidental gunshot wounds, cop killer types; in other words they will be chastised and declared an unacceptable risk to society. Armed revolt or not, in the end we still lose.

Some say we need to start to sending letters explaining to our Democrat RULERS a new ban won't do anything else but take guns from the hands of the law abiding Americans while leaving only the drug gangs armed.
That's just as useless proposition as an armed revolt. Simply because Obama and his thugs already know the new AWB won't do a damn thing to improve the security of the people in the US or Mexico. Security and less crime isn't what they want; reducing gang violence it is only the pretext to pass a law giving them more control over our lives and liberties while expanding and consolidating their power.

Liberal Democrats are fearing the guns in the hands of the American people. They know all too well revolutions against oppressive governments cannot succeed with if revolutionaries are disarmed or don't have access to small arms matching the capabilities of those issued to the troops sent out to repress the revolt.
The enemies of Liberty have the media on their side, they have control over the White House and the Legislative; they have a sizable number of Elmer Fudds who believe the 2nd Amendment it's only about their Remington 700 bolt action and the deer tag; and they also have the backstabbing AR/AK liberal rifle owner types populating gun forums. These are the most disgusting ones; until not too long ago they used to be very vocal Obama supporters claiming he and Biden are friends of gun owners and if we disagree with them we are scaremongering black helicopter conspiracy types. These days they are gone, nowhere to be found. I guess they can call their mission accomplished.

Russian Armament Industry Only Inches From Bankrupcy

Not sure if it's good news or bad.
If you shoot the relatively cheap Wolf or Barnaul ammo this could be bad.
If you don't trust Russians (and I don't), this could be good.
Anyway, one thing is for sure: if the Russkies want to jump start their dying firearms and ammunition industry, the best thing they can do is to elect Obama as President next time around.

One third of Russian armament manufacturers are almost bankrupt and the industry is trying to obtain financial credit from Western banks as the loans from Russian banks are too expensive.

"Only 36% of the firearms and military equipment can be considered as being financially stable while 30% are close to go belly up" says Russian Technologies CEO Serghei Cemezov. He added: "almost half of the manufacturers of ammunition and explosives are bankrupt. Unfortunately the situation has worsened during the last four months"

Cermezov has become one of the most influential businessman during the mandate of the ex-Russian President Vladimir Putin by building a state owned industrial empire encompassing the world's biggest titanium producer, the biggest Russian automotive manufacturer and one of the world's largest military technology and armament exporters.

However, the Russian industrial output is in steep decline for the first time since 1998. The Russian Federation had defaulted its domestic financial credits and allowed its currency to depreciate vs. the US Dollar. The crisis highlights Russia's excessive dependency on oil and raw material exports.

Homicidal Islamic Bomber Recruited And Indoctrinated In The US

Clearly this homicidal jihadi scum wasn't indoctrinated in an American mosque and by an Islamic cleric. Otherwise the media and the authorities would have told us, right?

Militants Drew Recruit in U.S., F.B.I. Says


WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. director, Robert S. Mueller III, said Monday that a Somali-American man who was one of several suicide bombers in a terrorist attack last October in Somalia had apparently been indoctrinated into his extremist beliefs while living in the United States.

The man, Shirwa Ahmed, was the first known suicide bomber with American citizenship. He immigrated with his family to the Minneapolis area in the mid-1990s, Mr. Mueller said, but he returned to Somalia after he was recruited by a militant group.

“It appears that this individual was radicalized in his hometown in Minnesota,” Mr. Mueller said, speaking at a meeting of the Council on Foreign Relations. Minneapolis claims the country’s largest Somali population.

Mr. Ahmed was driving a vehicle laden with explosives that blew up in northern Somalia in an attack that killed as many as 30 people, according to news reports. His body was returned to the United States with the help of the F.B.I.

Federal authorities have said that Mr. Ahmed was one of as many as two dozen young men of Somali descent who had disappeared in the past two years from their homes in the Minneapolis area after being recruited by the Shabab, a militia that is suspected of having ties to Al Qaeda and that has waged a war against the Somali government.

Mr. Mueller suggested that Somali recruiting posed a serious issue for the F.B.I., which has sought the cooperation of the Somali community to try to understand whether the recruiting represents a threat.

“It raises the question of whether these young men will one day come home, and, if so, what might they undertake here,” he said.

This begs the question: if all American Muslims are peaceful people minding their own business as we are always told by CAIR and their liberal Dhimmicrat friends.... then where, how and who brainwashed this man to become a homicide bomber?
I think I know the answer: must be a side effect of the fluoride in the water.

ACORN Taking What The Obama Campaign Promised Them

" Police in Baltimore today made what is believed to be the first arrest in a civil disobedience program aimed at supporting homeowners who refuse to vacate their foreclosed homes.

An activist with ACORN — the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now — faces criminal charges after breaking into a home in southeast Baltimore on Thursday to protest the foreclosure crisis sweeping the country.

"This is our house now," ACORN member Louis Beverly reportedly said after cutting a lock with bolt cutters at the home."

From FoxNews

Their house. Their country. Their President. Their rules, not the rule of law.
Anyone else has this strange feeling America is quickly becoming a third-world Banana Republic where a gang of thugs rules by intimidation and force?

Close Gitmo, See This Repeated Hundreds Of Times

In Obamaworld hard-core jihadi terrorists hell bent on murdering dirty kuffars in exchange for the 72 houris promised by Allah in heaven can be reformed if we close Gitmo and give them the same treatment Paris Hilton received in her short go-to-jail adventure.

In the real world where the rest of us live in, it is rarely the case. Here is another freed Islamonazi who as a result of the pressure exerted by the liberal media and the ACLU jackals, was sent from Guantanamo to his native Kuweit only to be let out by a Kuweiti judge on a measly $1,700 bail. Four months later he was tried and found not guilty.

Congratulations liberals: you showed the world we are more humane than they are and you saved an innocent man from being wrongfully detained in an illegal prison, soon to be closed by Thy Obamessiah.

Justice won the day, isn't it libs?

Not so fast. First take a look at your hands. See the red stains on them? Wonder what's that red stuff and where it came from?

It's the blood of the 13 Iraqi soldiers killed in a homicide bomb attack by the poor "innocent" terrorist you freed. You assisted him to murder 13 people. Feels good to know you did the right thing, isn't it?

A 'ticking time bomb' goes off

By Rajiv Chandrasekaran

KUWAIT CITY - After arriving here from Guantanamo Bay in November 2005, Abdallah Saleh al-Ajmi was transported by Kuwaiti security agents to a military hospital, where he was allowed to meet with his family. He was soon moved to the city's central jail and placed in a high-security wing.

Every few days, he was taken to a small interrogation room, this time by officials of his own government who wanted to know what he had been doing in Afghanistan. Ajmi insisted that he never traveled to Afghanistan, that he never fought with the Taliban -- that he had simply gone to Pakistan to study the Koran and that he was apprehended when he traveled toward the Afghan border to help refugees. He kept trying to steer the sessions toward a discussion of his nearly four years at Guantanamo and what had happened to him there.

After four months, a judge ordered him freed on $1,720 bail. He was later tried in a criminal court and acquitted of all charges.

Senior U.S. government officials were deeply disappointed -- they had hoped that Kuwait, an American ally, would find a way to detain Ajmi for years -- but they refrained from any public criticism. At the very least, the officials figured, Kuwaiti authorities would keep a close watch on him. And they expected Ajmi to move on, to put his Guantanamo experience behind him, to get a job and settle down after his time in one of the toughest prisons on the planet.

Ajmi chose a different path. Last March, he drove a truck packed with explosives onto an Iraqi army base outside Mosul, killing 13 Iraqi soldiers and himself. It was the denouement of a nihilistic descent that his lawyers and family believe commenced at Guantanamo.

His case illuminates a key challenge facing the Obama administration as it considers how to close the U.S. military prison and resolve the futures of the approximately 245 incarcerated there. Once detainees are sent home, even to friendly nations, the United States has very little influence over what happens to them. Convictions are not guaranteed. Neither is surveillance by home countries. And for those allowed to go free, assistance in resuming a normal life is rare.

Vaclav Klaus: EU Is Becoming A Soviet Union Look-Alike

Czech President Vaclav Klaus is comparing hard-core supporters of European integration with the Communist Party activists form the Soviet era.

The Czech Republic is currently at the helm of the rotating Presidency of the EU , but this didn't stopped Klaus to speak up his ming and tell the Euro-parlamentarians they are interfering too much in other peoples lives and their personal decisions.

"Another treaty aimed to prop up the failing the EU institutions would make things even worse", Klaus said. "The theory that there is only one possible and correct alternative to the future, that of a total integration is false"

President Klaus continued: " Not a very long time ago, in our part of Europe we used to live in a political system that didn't allowed social alternatives and any form of political opposition. Here in the EU Parliament there isn't anything but one alternative and those who dare to think about and propose other options are singled out and chastised as enemies"

Chairman of the House Western Hemisphere Subcommittee Leads Letter with 53 Members of Congress

Washington, D.C.--Congressman Eliot Engel, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, wrote a letter signed by 53 Members of Congress urging President Obama to “return to enforcement of the law banning imports of assault weapons, which was previously enforced during the administrations of Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton.” The letter was also led by Congressman Michael Castle (R-DE) and Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY).

“The alarming prevalence of imported assault weapons in the US has put our nation’s police officers at risk. Returning to the Bush 41/Clinton enforcement of the ban on imported assault weapons will protect our brave police forces and all people throughout New York and the United States,” said Rep. Engel.

Engel added that returning to enforcement of the imported assault weapons ban is “a no-brainer that would require no legislative action.”

Mihail Kalashnikov Admits German "Help" To Create The AK-47 Rifle

Mihail Kalasnikov is admitting he was "helped" by the German inventor and arms maker Hugo Schmeisser to create the AK-47 assault rifle

-- The German inventor developed the first assault weapon Sturmgewehr 44 during WWII. After the end of the war Schmeisser was displaced and forced to work in the Soviet Union

Sturmgewehr 44 and AK-47

February 17 16:09

Famous Soviet arms builder Mihail Kalasnikov recently acknowledged he didn't worked alone at the design and development of the AK-47 assault rifle, but he benefited from the help of Hugo Schmeisser, the most prolific small arms inventor of the Third Reich. Kalashnikov and Schmeisser meet each other at the small arms factory of Izhevsk, writes as quoted by Agerpress, the Romanian national news agency.

According to the Russian historian Aleksei Korobeinikov, Schmeisser arrived in Ijhevsk immediately after the war. The city of Suhl, Schmeisser's hometown in defeated Germany, was situated in the Soviet occupation zone. Schmeisser and another couple of dozens German small arms specialists received from the Soviet occupiers an offer they "couldn't refuse": to work at a Soviet small arms factory in the Urals. How the Soviets were making these types of "generous offers" after the war isn't a secret for anyone anymore. So as a result of the Soviet "proposal" a train with German specialists arrived at Izhevs on October 24th 1946. Together with Schmeisser and his colleagues, the train carried all the blue prints and plans the Soviets could grab from their occupation zone. Truth be told, the Western Allies did exactly the same thing.

Mihail Kalasnikov and Hugo Schmeisser

The Russian experts are claiming that it is pretty hard to determine Hugo Schmeisser contribution to the design and development of the AK-47 assault rifle because all official documents referring to this episode are still classified (gee, I wonder why?) and Schmeisser didn't left behind any kind of memoirs or letters about his life in the Soviet Union.

Referring to this period, Schmeisser evasively said "I gave the Russians some advice".
The German arms maker left behind in Izhevsk only a couple of letters and photographs. The house in which Schmeisser and his colleagues used to live is now in ruins. Aleksandr Ermakov, an employee of the Kalashnikov Museum declares: "only a few letters are in our possession in which Schmeisser is petitioning the Soviet Defense Minister for improving the substandard living conditions, complains about the food and asks for an increase in salary and a travel permit to visit his homeland.

Many historians are claiming Michail Kalashnikov has "stolen" the AK-47 design from the Germans. In opposition, the Russians claim that Schmeisser only role was to implement the new manufacturing technologies for mass producing the new assault rifle.
The assault rifle designed by Hugo Schmeisser during WWII (STG 44 - Sturmgewehr 44, also known as MP 43 and MP 44) looks very similar with the AK-47, designed by Kalasnikov. But the Russians are claiming that the similarities are stopping once you get to look inside the rifle. Kalashnikov is claiming he started work on his design in 1943 and by 1946 his rifle was already in the testing phase. However, denying the German contribution to the mass production of the AK-47 rifle would be a another Soviet lie historians say; it is undeniable that at Ijhevsk, Schmeisser took care of the AK-47 stamped receiver manufacturing process. Moreover, the merit for the mass production of the stamped receiver, the ammunition magazine and other important parts of the rifle are undeniably the product of Schmeisser's efforts.

Translation from Ziua Online by Transsylvania Phoenix

For the naysayers who say comrade Kalashnikov couldn't have been helped by Hugo Schmeisser in the design of his AK-47 rifle because he started working on his project in 1944 and the German inventor only arrived in the Soviet Union in 1946: you forgot a little detail, my friends.
And that is Schmeisser's StG-43/44 was already in service and issued to German troops in 1944. Not coincidentally, it was the same year Kalashnikov started his work on the AK-47.

So here is an easy question for you: on who's desk do you think the first Stg-43/44 captured by the Soviet troops on the battlefield landed once it arrived in the Moscow?
You don't need to be a rocket scientist to guess the answer: the Kalashnikov bureau of reverse engineering, or however the Russkies may have called it at the time.

We Will Not Disarm!!!

Author Unknown: ( from Soldier of Fortune magazine, October 1994.)

We Will Not Disarm!!!

Notice To All Politicians:

It is time to speak plainly for the good citizens and patriots of this nation who believe unendingly in the Constitution of the United States of America.

Though foreign governments may disarm their subjects, we will not go down that road. We will not disarm and see our freedoms stripped away. The lessons of history are numerous, clear, and bloody.

A disarmed population inevitably becomes an enslaved population. A disarmed population is without power, reduced to childlike obedience to-and dependence upon - the organs of a parental state. A disarmed population will lose-either piecemeal or in one sweeping act - those basic rights for which the citizens of America risked their lives and fortunes over 200 years ago.

We Will Not Disarm.

The right to self-protection-the internal directive of every living creature, be it mouse or man is the most fundamental right of all. It is a right that must be exercised against the predators of the streets, against the predators hidden within agencies of law enforcement, and against the most dangerous predators of all - those to be found in government, whose insidious grasping for power is relentless and never-ending.

We Will Not Disarm.

Not in the face of robbers, rapists and murderers who prey upon our families and friends. Nor in the face of police and bureau agents who would turn a blind eye to the Constitution, who would betray the birthright of their countrymen; nor in the face of politicians of the lowest order-those who pander to the ignorant, the weak, the fearful, the naive; those indebted to a virulent strain of the rich who insulate themselves from the dangers imposed upon other Americans and then preach disarmament.

* We will not surrender our handguns.
* We will not surrender our hunting arms.
* And we will not surrender our firearms of military pattern or military utility, nor their proper furnishings, nor the right to buy, to sell, or to manufacture such items.

Firearms of military utility, which serve well and nobly in times of social disturbance as tools of defense for the law-abiding, serve also in the quiet role of prevention, against both the criminal and the tyrannical. An armed citizenry the well-regulated militia of the Second Amendment, properly armed with military firearms - is a powerful deterrent, on both conscious and subconscious levels, to those inclined toward governmental usurpation's.

An armed citizenry stands as a constant reminder to those in power that, though they may violate our rights temporarily, they will not do so endlessly and without consequence. And should Americans again be confronted with the necessity of - may God forbid it - throwing off the chains of a tyrannical and suffocating regime, firearms designed to answer the particular demands of warfare will provide the swiftest and most decisive means to this end.

Any law which prohibits or limits a citizen's possession of firearms of military utility or their proper furnishings, provides an open window through which a corrupt government will crawl to steal away the remainder of our firearms and our liberties. Any law which prohibits or limits a citizen's possession of firearms of military utility or their proper furnishings, being directly contrary to the letter and spirit of the Second Amendment, is inimical to the Constitution, to the United States of America, and to its citizens.

Now-today-we are witnessing the perilous times foreseen by the architects of the Constitution. These are times when our government is demanding - in the guise of measures for the common good - the relinquishment of several rights guaranteed to Americans in the Constitution, foremost among which is the right to keep and bear arms for our own defense. These are times when our government has abdicated its primary responsibility-to provide for the security of its citizens. Swift and sure punishment of outlaws is absent, and in its place is offered the false remedy of disarming the law-abiding. Where this unconstitutional action has been given the force of law, it has failed to provide relief and has produced greater social discord. This discord in turn now serves as the false basis for the demand that we give up other rights, and for the demand for more police, more agents of bureaucratic control to enforce the revocation of these rights.

Legislators, justices and law officers must bear in mind that the foundation of their duties is to uphold the fundamental law of the land-the Constitution. They must bear in mind that the unconstitutional act of disarming one's fellow citizens will also disarm one's parents, spouse, brothers, sisters, children and children's children. They must bear in mind that there are good citizens who - taking heed of George Washington's belief that arms are the liberty teeth of the people-will not passively allow these teeth to be torn out. There are good citizens who-taking heed of Benjamin Franklin's admonition that those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety-will surrender not one of their rights. Those who eat away at our right to own and use firearms are feeding on the roots of a plant over two centuries old, a plant whose blossom is the most free, most powerful nation ever to exist on the face of this planet.

The right to keep and bear arms is the tap root of this plant. All other rights were won at the point of a gun and will endure only at the point of a gun. Could they speak, millions upon millions of this world's dead souls would testify to this truth. Millions upon millions of the living can so testify today. Now - today - isa critical moment in our history.

Will we Americans passively lie down before a government grown disdainful of its best citizens? Or will we again declare:

WE are the government, government functions at our behest, and it may not rescind our sacred rights? Will we place our faith in public servants who behave like our masters? Or will we place our faith in the words and deeds of the daring, far-seeing men and women whose blood, sweat and tears brought forth this great nation?

Will we believe those who assure us that the police officer will shield us from the criminal? Or will we believe our eyes and ears, presented every day with news of our unarmed neighbors falling prey in their homes, on our streets, in our places of work and play?

Will we bow our heads to cowards and fools who will not learn and do not understand the lessons of human history? Or will we stand straight and assume the daily tasks and risks that liberty entails? Will we ignore even the lessons of this present era-which has seen the cruel oppression of millions on the continents of Europe, Asia, Africa and South America-and believe that the continent of North America is immune to such political disease? Or will we wisely accept the realities of this world, wisely listen to and make use of the precautions provided by our ancestors?

Will we be deceived by shameless liars who say that disarmament equals safety, helplessness equals strength, patriotism equals criminality? Or will we mark the words of our forefathers, who wrote in plain language: The right of the people tokeep and bear arms shall not be infringed?

Let us make known: We will choose the latter option in every case.

Legislators: Do your duty to your country. Uphold the Constitution as you swore to do. Do not shame yourselves by knocking loose the mighty keystone of this great republic - the right to bear arms.

Justices: Do your duty to your country. Examine the origins of our right to weaponry and uphold the letter and spirit of the Constitution.

Lawmen: Do your duty to your country. Do not be misguided and misused. Your task is to serve and to protect-not to oppress, to disarm and to make helpless your countrymen. To the blind, the ignorant, the apathetic, the safe and sheltered, these may seem to be concerns of another age. They are not. They are as vital as they ever have been through history. For times may change but human nature does not. And it is to protect forever against the evil in human nature that the Founding Fathers set aside certain rights as inviolable.

For these reasons we must now make known:

We will not passively take the path that leads to tyranny. We will not go down that road. We Will Not Disarm.

Obama Congratulates Chavez, Ceausescu For Democratic Re-election

"WASHINGTON (Associated Press) :
-- The Obama administration says the referendum that cleared the way for Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to run for re-election was democratic.

In other news (this time from an alternate reality where the Berlin wall wasn't torn down in 1989)

"BUCHAREST (Scanteia) official newspaper or the Romanian Communist Party:
--President Obama sent congratulatory message to the Romanian leader Nicolae Ceausescu expressing his respect and admiration for the 89 year old communist leader, reelected tonight in a free and democratic election for the 11th time.

The same evening CNN aired the following song dedicated to the Great Romanian Leader (click play):

Ceausescu Re-elected
(1980's original Ceausescu cult of personality song)

Lyrics translated from Romanian

The Party, the country and the people
In a single mind and a single Leader
Toghether we are building the future
Towards communism we are flying ahead

Ceausescu re-elected at the 14th Party Congress (repeat 3 more times)

We are the masters of today and every single thing
In our country, together we are fighting
To show you that WE CAN
To dare, to wish and to HOPE
(wait...where did I heard that before?)

Ceausescu re-elected at the 14th Party Congress (repeat 3 more times)

The nation is proud an free
It build so many citadels
The flag of wonderful Romania
It is also proud of its country

Ceausescu re-elected at the 14th Party Congress (repeat 3 more times)

The Party represents the power
Leading us toward the future
The Party is the love
For our brave Leader

Ceausescu re-elected at the 14th Party Congress (repeat 3 more times)

President Ceausescu expressing his deep gratitude for the American comrade Obama for calling his 11th re-election "democratic":

UPDATE: Some readers complain the first piece of news, the one about the Obama administration declaring "democratic" the referendum on Chavez eligibility to run for a third Presidential to be untrue.
Got some news for you folks: it is very true. Washington Post confirms it.

As for Obama congratulating Ceausescu for his 11th "democratic" reelection, I am pretty sure he wouldn't have any problem doing it.
After all, if Obama doesn't seem to mind to call an election referendum held by a communist dictator like Chavez "democratic", why would he object to endorse the 11th re-election of another communist dictator?

Only problem is, Ceausescu is a bullet riddled rotting corpse since Christmas Day 1989 - the day he faced the Romanian peoples justice and the execution squad; therefore Obama lost another opportunity to make nice to and have a constructive, no preconditions, open dialogue with another genocidal thug.

Woo Hoo! Time To Buy A Home In Montana

Now I know where I'll move when I retire

MT: House aims to shoot down federal gun controls

HELENA — Montana lawmakers fired another shot in battles for states' rights as they supported letting some Montana gun owners and dealers skip reporting their transactions to the federal government.

Under House Bill 246, firearms made in Montana and used in Montana would be exempt from federal regulation. The same would be true for firearm accessories and ammunition made and sold in the state.

"What we need here is for Montana to be able to handle Montana's business and affairs,'' Republican Rep. Joel Boniek told fellow lawmakers Saturday. The wilderness guide from Livingston defeated Republican incumbent Bruce Malcolm in last spring's election.

Boniek's measure aims to circumvent federal authority over interstate commerce, which is the legal basis for most gun regulation in the United States. The bill potentially could release Montanans from both federal gun registration requirements and dealership licensing rules. Since the state has no background-check laws on its own books, the legislation also could free gun purchasers from that requirement.

"Firearms are inextricably linked to the history and culture of Montana, and I'd like to support that,'' Boniek said. "But I want to point out that the issue here is not about firearms. It's about state rights.''

The House voted 64-36 for the bill on Saturday. If it clears a final vote, the measure will go to the Senate.

House Republicans were joined by 14 Democrats in passing the measure.

"I would hope that our U.S. Supreme Court would begin to retreat from what I think is an abusive interpretation of our interstate commerce clause,'' said Rep. Deborah Kottel, a Democrat from Great Falls who supports the measure.

That clause in the U.S. Constitution grants Congress authority to regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the states. The Supreme Court has handled cases seeking to limit the clause's application in recent years. In 2005, the court upheld federal authority to regulate marijuana under the clause, even when its use is limited to noncommercial purposes — such as medical reasons — and it is grown and used within a state's borders.

The Montana bill follows fears here and elsewhere that the election of Barack Obama as president will trigger more gun regulation. In the months before Obama's inauguration, Montanans rushed to stock up on guns, pushing gun sales beyond normal benchmarks despite the recession.

Opponents of the measure worry lax regulations in the state could lead to a similar surge in both gun sales and gun manufacturing.

"Who are we bringing in and is this the kind of business we want to have in this state?'' asked Rep. Sue Malek, D-Missoula. "I want our state to be recognized as a state that cares about people, and that cares about the environment.''

The bill is one of a number the Legislature is considering that may extend gun rights in Montana.

Earlier in the week, the House passed another measure, HB228, that would let Montanans carry concealed weapons in city limits without having permits.

On Saturday the House Judiciary Committee narrowly passed a resolution that affirms Montanans' right to carry weapons in national parks and wildlife refuges.

Gun Rights On Campus Movement Is Gainig Steam

Here is a surprisingly unbiased piece from Washington (com)Post on pro-Second Amendment student groups and their efforts to legalize the right carry concealed firearms in university campuses for self protection.

Students Aim for Gun Rights on Campus
Group Advocates for Concealed Weapons to Protect Against College Shootings

HARRISONBURG, Va., Feb. 14 --

Kyle Smith agreed to play the bad guy.

In a scenario eerily designed to imitate the Virginia Tech massacre, when a lone gunman shot and killed 32 people in the nine minutes it took for campus police to respond, Smith burst into a classroom here Saturday, his right index finger pointed as if it were a gun drawn, and immediately "shot" the teacher between the eyes.

"You people treated me wrong," the freshman yelled, a little sheepishly. "I just can't take it anymore."

As the four students in the room screamed, hit the floor and crouched under desks, he methodically fired five more shots with his finger and "killed" them all. In 23 seconds, it was over.

"You're all dead," Shawn Deehan, a gun rights advocate from, told the jeans-clad James Madison University students crumpled on the floor and waiting for his cue that the reenactment was over. "A great rate of response from law enforcement is six minutes. Six minutes. If you don't care if you live or die, that's a suitable response. But if you're concerned about living another day, another minute, then that's too long."

Then Deehan reran the scenario the way he and other gun rights advocates would prefer: with the teacher and two students carrying concealed weapons.


Efforts by gun rights advocates to allow students and teachers to carry concealed weapons on campus have never gotten out of committee in the gun-friendly Virginia legislature the past four years. And a spate of attempts to introduce similar bills in a number of states since the Virginia Tech shooting have failed. But gun rights advocates say the battle is just beginning. And the battleground now, they say, is the hearts and minds and trigger fingers of students themselves.

What better way to create converts and advocates, they say, than to put them in the shoes of Virginia Tech victims and let them feel the difference between being defenseless and having the power to take action.

For the second scenario, bad guy Smith again barged into the classroom and again whacked the teacher between the eyes. But this time, Kelly Clouston and Leah Sargent, students at James Madison, bounced up out of their seats, assumed a wide-legged stance and pointed their "gun" fingers at Smith, not forgetting to pull their hands back slightly to imitate a pistol's recoil after they fired. Smith fell to the floor four seconds after he'd entered.

"See? One person, maybe two, got shot and it's over," Deehan said proudly. "This is the reality with concealed carry. It's over." Clouston and Sargent high-fived each other.


Yesterday's demonstration, in a classroom at the Top Gun Shooting Range in Harrisonburg, was just one of a number of Virginia Tech classroom shooting scenarios that gun rights advocates had been staging all week at JMU, using Nerf guns, plastic toy rifles and fingers. Organizers said more than 100 students and community members came to hear lectures about gun rights, watch the two Virginia Tech scenarios and spend a sunny day shooting actual pistols at the firing range.

"We want people to understand that guns can be safe and guns can be fun," Katie Cannon said. The College Republicans' event coordinator helped organize the gun rights week.

Sargent, a senior music education major, donned thick plastic glasses and screwed bright orange earplugs into her ears. "The line is hot!" organizers called out. "Fire away!" She picked up a Glock 19 9mm and stared down its sights. Pa CHA. The gun discharged. Bull's-eye.

"This is really fun. I loved it," Sargent said after her target shooting session. "I'm really proud of this." She unfurled her target, with a cluster of holes directly in the center of the bull's-eye. "She's a natural," one of the instructors said admiringly. She tucked her long blond hair behind one ear and smiled. A spent bullet casing dropped to the floor.

Senior Dianne Feinstein Just Can't Keep Her Pie Hole Shut

Here is another example of a lib passing military secrets to the enemy. Where is the outrage of the Democrats accusing Bush & Cheney for blowing the cover of an agent not currently undercover?

LA Slimes:

Feinstein comment on U.S. drones likely to embarrass Pakistan

The Predator planes that launch missile strikes against militants are based in Pakistan, the senator says. That suggests a much deeper relationship with the U.S. than Islamabad would like to admit.

Reporting from Washington -- A senior U.S. lawmaker said Thursday that unmanned CIA Predator aircraft operating in Pakistan are flown from an air base in that country, a revelation likely to embarrass the Pakistani government and complicate its counter-terrorism collaboration with the United States.

The disclosure by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, marked the first time a U.S. official had publicly commented on where the Predator aircraft patrolling Pakistan take off and land.

At a hearing, Feinstein expressed surprise over Pakistani opposition to the campaign of Predator-launched CIA missile strikes against Islamic extremist targets along Pakistan's northwestern border.

"As I understand it, these are flown out of a Pakistani base," she said.

The basing of the pilotless aircraft in Pakistan suggests a much deeper relationship with the United States on counter-terrorism matters than has been publicly acknowledged. Such an arrangement would be at odds with protests lodged by officials in Islamabad, the capital, and could inflame anti-American sentiment in the country.

The CIA declined to comment, but former U.S. intelligence officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information, confirmed that Feinstein's account was accurate.

Dianne Feinstein playing peek-a-boo with Bin Laden

Bruce Hoffman, a terrorism expert at Georgetown University, said Feinstein's comments put Pakistan's government on the spot.

"If accurate, what this says is that Pakistani involvement, or at least acquiescence, has been much more extensive than has previously been known," he said. "It puts the Pakistani government in a far more difficult position [in terms of] its credibility with its own people. Unfortunately it also has the potential to threaten Pakistani-American relations."

So here it is: Dianne Feinstein, chairwoman of the Intelligence Committee demonstrating how being intelligent isn't a requirement for the position she holds.
Or maybe she's hot for Bin Laden and she's trying to help him. Who knows?

To LGF's Charles Johnson: You Really Lost It, Pal!

I am really saddened and disappointed with what is going on these days at Little Green Footballs, one of my favorite places to hang around-until today.
The anti-Christian crusade started by Charles Johnson took proportions I would have never ever dreamed in my worst nightmares.

But let me make it clear first: I am not one of those "Bible thumping Christian fanatics" Charles seems to be so scared of. I was brought up as a Greek Orthodox Christian, which is one of the least militant and apolitic branches of Christianity to start with. On top of that, I am not a church goer; the only occasions I attend organized religious services are pretty much what people who are 100% atheists would be present for in a church: weddings and funeral services. I believe the evolution theory is true - for what us ignorant humans assume to be true at this moment when we still are in the infancy of our civilization and we are a long way to understand who we really are and where we are going from now on.
So if you read this blog entry my dear Charles, I just want to let you know that I am probably less "Christian fundamentalist" than 90% of the people visiting LGF.

Well, starting today I am no longer welcomed at LGF. Charles Johnson banned me for the following comment I wrote on one of his blog entries in which he is doing what it seems to lately become an obsession for him: mocking Christians and ridiculing whoever isn't an enlightened atheist like him on a daily basis. Here is the ONLY ONE AND ONLY comment I wrote on LGF since last August, posted today on one of Charles' daily Christian bash-fest :

ELKafir Post #462

Mocking, ridiculing and alienating our (Christian) allies when Islamonazi appeasing socialists control the White House, the Legislative, the Executive and 95% of the media.
Unity is what we need most, yet we are tearing each other apart.
Not smart. Not good.

Koskooks and DU-ers must be filled with joy reading these posts.

This was an appeal to get over the atheist-Christian dividing and bickering for which we Conservatives have no need today when Obama and his socialist thugs are in process of "changing" America.

Well, that was my last post at LGF; not five minutes later, my account was disabled.

But that's not all: Charles went a few extra steps ahead to smear me. At first he posted this reply:

Charles Post#476

I should have blocked your sorry ass when you posted comments calling for the mass deportation of Muslims from America, and to amend the Constitution to strip them of citizenship.

That mistake is now remedied.

What the hell are you talking about, Charles? When and where did I said or wrote any of that? Did you just lost your fucking mind or are you just the biggest liar on the Blogosphere?

But that wasn't enought for him: just a couple of minutes later he continued with another lie posting this garbage about what I supposedly replied to the criticism of another LGF-er, claiming he deleted my post "just in time" (how convenient is that, Charles? why didn't you put me to shame by leaving the post you are attributing to me alone, for everyone to see?):

Charles Post #479

This is the deleted comment by 'ElKafir' I'm referring to, and it wasn't the first:

"We must separate ourselves from this cancer of civilization called Islam.

Mass deportations. Start with the non-citizens. Then continue with the naturalized and US born or converted muslims. Declare Islam a threat to the very existance of the Republic and its Constitution (afterall, in Islam the only accepted law is the Sharia and muslims everywhere in the world are taught their first duty is to obey the Islamic law and only after that to obey the laws of the countries they live in - with the condition those laws aren't contradicting the Islamic laws).

Amend the Constitution, strip them all of citizenship, offer them the chance to become apostates and remain here in the civilized world or deport them if they refuse.

Make conversion and preaching Islam a crime punished either by life in prison or deportation. That would be a humaine measure when compared with the punishment for renouncing Islam in most islamic countries is death by decapitation."

Charles, my boy...I don't know how to say this to you lost your mind. You are nucking futs. Everyone who reads my little insignificant blog knows what I stand for, what I am all about and most importantly knows (let me put this in bold) I never, ever posted this kind of garbage, nor did I ever intend to post something like that anywhere on the Internet. Furthermore, I strongly disagree and condemn the type of rhetoric you are attributing to me with such deceptive malevolence.

Let me thell you something about me, young man: I lived the first half of my life under one of the darkest, most repressive communist tyrannies in Eastern Europe. By coming to the US I hoped to live the last half in a free country, as a free citizen, not a slave of the State. As a naturalized citizen myself I believe that one of the things that makes America great is the melting pot of people of different ethnies, backgrounds and religions (yes, even Muslims - does that surprise you?).

In the first 35 years of my life I've seen political, ethnic and religious persecution; I have seen statism, dictature, opression, propaganda and lies raised to the rank of official State policy with my own eyes. But not only I have seen it seen it Charles, I lived it. And when I was sick enough of it, just like like many of my fellow ex co-citizens I took up arms and sent the piece of shit communist dictator together with his butt-ugly and evil wife to hell.

So your pathetic attempt to smear me as a religious bigot and a promoter of genocide against tens of millions Muslims (who by no will of their own, but simply by birth have been brought up and raised as Muslims) it is pathetic to say the least. You Charles are a bloody liar and deceiver. You may have a huge following today and feel at the top of your game but there is something you need to know my boy: nothing that stands on lies and deceit lasts for long. And the higher you climb on the ladder, the most spectacular the fall.

Enjoy your fame Charles. While it lasts.

UPDATE: Just got an email from somebody telling me Charles Johnson recently wrote two smear pieces, one on Robert Spencer from JihadWatch and another one on... Ann Coulter! Can't tell if it is true since the Master Lizzard put me on his blacklist and I can't browse LGF anymore. But if that's the case, I am honored to be in such a select company on the LGF enemies category together with accomplished writers and commentators like Ann and Robert. And that also begs the question: if Ann Coulter and Robert Spencer are his adversaries, for what team is Charles Johnson really playing now?

Update: Hey long it took you to insert a comment in that 2007 thread? Probably a lot less that it took you to type and falsely attribute it to me.
Having computer and Internet skills: that's the only thing I still respect you for.



1. Lots and lots of traffic incoming from LGF. Honestly, I can't say I am displeased, even if many of you Lizzards are PO'd at me. Sorry if you feel that way. But since you're already here please feel free to browse for older posts and try to see if anything I posted here in the past can confirm The Great Lizzard Inquisitor accusations of fascism and genocide against me.

2. Since many seem to forget the most important aspect of this spat contest and that is how everythig started. On one of Charles daily posts aimed at Christians (again, I am a non-practicing Christian who believes in Evolution), I posted an appeal to tone down the anti-Christian and Creationist rhetoric:

Mocking, ridiculing and alienating our (Christian) allies when Islamonazi appeasing socialists control the White House, the Legislative, the Executive and 95% of the media.
Unity is what we need most, yet we are tearing each other apart.
Not smart. Not good. Koskooks and DU-ers must be filled with joy reading these posts.

In all honesty, is anyone of you seeing anything offensive about what I wrote? (other than if you are a Koskook, a DU-er or an Islamonazi). Because personally don't believe there is anything offensive about calling for a more civilized dialogue with the Christian base of the Republican Party. Like it or not, they are a force in conservative politics. Alienating them only strengthens the Obama camp and at a time when America is heading full speed ahead towards Socialism, we need all the help we can get. I didn't slammed evolutionists, Charles Darwin or Charles Johnson. Yet, Charles banned me over this comment. Why? You ask him, because I don't have the slightest idea.

Here is another update, this is the last one:

Let's pretend to believe what Charles says I posted in 2007 was indeed my contribution:

"We must separate ourselves from this cancer of civilization called Islam.

Mass deportations. Start with the non-citizens. Then continue with the naturalized and US born or converted muslims. Declare Islam a threat to the very existance of the Republic and its Constitution (afterall, in Islam the only accepted law is the Sharia and muslims everywhere in the world are taught their first duty is to obey the Islamic law and only after that to obey the laws of the countries they live in - with the condition those laws aren't contradicting the Islamic laws).

Amend the Constitution, strip them all of citizenship, offer them the chance to become apostates and remain here in the civilized world or deport them if they refuse.

Make conversion and preaching Islam a crime punished either by life in prison or deportation. That would be a humaine measure when compared with the punishment for renouncing Islam in most islamic countries is death by decapitation."

Charles reaction: he deletes this highly offensive post and lets me of the hook. Not even he doesn't ban me, but I don't even get a slap on the wrist.

Here is the second post (this one I don't contest it is mine):

Mocking, ridiculing and alienating our (Christian) allies when Islamonazi appeasing socialists control the White House, the Legislative, the Executive and 95% of the media.
Unity is what we need most, yet we are tearing each other apart.
Not smart. Not good. Koskooks and DU-ers must be filled with joy reading these posts.

Let's try to apply a little logic here: I don't get banned for a (deleted) very nasty post from 2007 that Charles is attributing to me; but I get banned for a non-offensive recent post (not deleted, thus by Charles indirect admission not offensive in any way shape or form).

If the recent post was offensive enough for Charles to ban me, but the old nasty post he is attributing to me didn't got me banned... then what the hell a Lizzard can do NOT to get banned at LGF?

Why, the answer is very simple: write very nasty comments of course. Charles just deletes them and lets you stick around for another 2 years ;)
But don't you dare writing commonsensical posts calling for less divisive bickering between atheist and Christian conservatives; that will surely get you banned.

That's Charles (Johnson, not Darwin) logic.
And he wants to to believe that. Pathetic indeed.

What I Have Learned From the Twentieth Century

Discovered this gem over at Sipsey Street Irregulars. It is a piece written 10 years ago by Mike Vanderboegh and his words are ringing today even truer than the day they were written.

Meet the Faculty Emeritus of the University of Collectivism. They make the trains run on time, right to the execution camp gate.
Here's a tip: Don't get in the boxcar.

I wrote this ten years ago. By request, here it is again.


What I Have Learned From the Twentieth Century

With thanks to Schoolmasters Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Mao Tse-Tung and Pol Pot

From the Liberty Pole
June, 1999
by Mike Vanderboegh

As an amateur historian of this sad century whose time is almost up, I would like to reflect upon six lessons I have learned in my studies. Folks who wish to live free and prosperous in the next century would do well to understand the failures of the past.

LESSON NO. 1: If a bureaucrat, or a soldier sent by a bureaucrat, comes to knock down your door and take you someplace you do not want to go because of who you are or what you think -- kill him. If you can, kill the politician who sent him. You will likely die anyway, and you will be saving someone else the same fate. For it is a universal truth that the intended victims always far outnumber the tyrant's executioners. Any nation which practices this lesson will quickly run out of executioners and tyrants, or they will run out of it.

LESSON NO. 2: If a bureaucrat, or a soldier sent by a bureaucrat, comes to knock down your door and confiscate your firearms -- kill him. The disarmament of law-abiding citizens is the required precursor to genocide.

LESSON NO. 3: If a bureaucrat tells you that he must know if you have a firearm so he can put your name on a list for the common good, or wants to issue you an identity card so that you be more easily identified -- tell him to go to hell. Registration of people and firearms is the required precursor to the tyranny which permits genocide. Bureaucrats cannot send soldiers to doors that are not on their list.

LESSON NO. 4: Believe actions, not words. Tyrants are consummate liars. Just because a tyrant is "democratically elected" does not mean he believes in democracy. Reference Adolf Hitler, 1932.

And just because a would-be tyrant mouths words of reverence to law and justice, or takes a solemn oath to uphold a constitution, does not mean be believes such concepts apply to him. Reference Bill Clinton, among others.

The language of the lie is just another tool of killers. A sign saying "Arbeit Macht Frei" (Work Makes You Free) posted above an execution camp gate does not mean that anybody gets out of there alive, and a room labeled "Showers" does not necessarily make you clean. Bill Clinton notwithstanding, the meaning of "is" is plain when such perverted language gets you killed. While all tyrants are liars, it is true that not all political liars are would-be tyrants -- but they bear close watching. And keep your rifle handy.

LESSON NO. 5: Our constitutional republic as crafted by the Founders is the worst form of government in the world, except when compared to all the others. Capitalism, as well, is a terrible way to run an economy, except when compared to all other economic systems. Unrestrained democracy is best expressed as three wolves and a sheep sitting down to vote on what to have for dinner. The horrors of collectivism in all its forms -- socialism, communism, national socialism, fascism -- have been demonstrated beyond dispute by considerable wasteful trial and bloody error. Leaders such as Bill Clinton who view the Constitution as inconvenient and ignorable are harbingers of tyranny.

LESSON NO. 6: While nations do not always get the leaders they deserve, they always get the leaders they tolerate. And anyone who tells you that "It Can't Happen Here" is whistling past the graveyard of history. There is no "house rule" that bars tyranny coming to America. History is replete with republics whose people grew complacent and descended into imperial butchery and chaos. Dictators count on the assistance of people who are complacent, fearful, envious, lazy and corrupt. While there is no "Collective guilt" to the crimes of a regime (all such crimes being committed by specific criminal individuals), there is certainly "collective responsibility" -- especially for those who watch the criminals at work without objecting or interfering.

A French journalist of the last century wrote: "I must speak out, for I will not be an accomplice." Evil tyrants require, indeed they depend upon, willing and unwilling accomplices -- good people who would never think of harming a soul themselves. Lenin called such people "useful idiots."

De Tocqueville observed that "America is great because America is good. When America ceases to be good, she will cease to be great." As related in the Old Testament, God judged nations based upon the immorality and criminality of their leaders. Entire peoples were scourged because of their failure to remove corrupt leaders.

As we move from the Twentieth Century into the Twenty-First, we should take care to remember the ancient story of Sodom and Gommorrah. If we wish to avoid the butchery of the Twentieth Century and the righteous judgment of the God of our antiquity, we would do well to keep our Bibles, our Constitution and our firearms close at hand.

OC Register: Sheriff stands firm on gun permit plan

Sheriff stands firm on gun permit plan
Hutchens tell activists, supervisors her policy to reduce permits remains


Sheriff Sandra Hutchens stood firm Tuesday against the county board of supervisors and hundreds of gun-owners threatening recall because of her controversial plan to reduce concealed weapons permits.

Hutchens, in the third public hearing on the issue in four months, told the crowd and county supervisors that her position had not changed since she first unveiled the new policy last fall -- despite some minor adjustments on how she plans to revoke more than 400 permits.

"I don't make the law. But I am required to enforce the law," said Hutchens, reiterating her view that California state law only allows certain exceptions to the ban on concealed guns in public.

"I realize this is a very passionate issue," Hutchens said. "I suppose the safe course of action would be to ignore the law and find a way around it."

While refusing to budge on the gun permits, Hutchens seemed to attempt a conciliatory tone, wearing a pants suit instead of her official uniform, and bringing a smaller entourage that did not include a top aide disciplined for exchanging disparaging text messages during a previous hearing.

Hutchens noted state statutes that give sheriffs wide discretion in granting gun permits. Former Sheriff Mike Carona was an avid supporter of gun rights and expanding the concealed weapons permits in Orange County.

But after federal prosecutors accused Carona of trading gun permits for campaign contributions, Hutchens decided to adopt a more restrictive policy and apply it retroactively.

Hutchens believes the law provides limited exceptions.

While all five county supervisors told her they did not agree, and warned Hutchens that she is misreading Orange County culture, they said they were powerlessness on the issue Tuesday.

"I do believe this policy remains overly restrictive for our county," said board Chairwoman Pat Bates.

But Bates admitted to the crowd, "the board really can't do much more than make our views known."

She announced this was the last hearing on the issue.

Supervisor Bill Campbell lamented publicly that he could have done a better job of sensing Hutchens views before voting to appoint her sheriff in June.

While Hutchens seemed to withstand the critiques of gun activists and county supervisors, it hasn't come without some damage.

Three different investigations are ongoing into her department's actions during the previous two gun hearings.

Hutchens launched an internal probe into a series of embarrassing text messages that her command staff sent to each other during a Nov. 18 hearing. She also launched another internal investigation into an incident where security cameras operated by a sheriff's investigator focused on the notes of two supervisors.

Meanwhile, the Office of Independent Review is monitoring another investigation into the increased security by sheriff's officials at a Jan. 13 hearing on the permits. Gun owners who attended that meeting have accused the department of trying to intimidate them.

And on Tuesday, county supervisors moved closer to removing the sheriff's department from providing security at the Hall of Administration. The Santa Ana Police Department has indicated interest in providing security to replace the sheriff's department, officials said.

Also, a dispute between the board and Hutchens over the ownership of the security tapes from the January board meeting is still simmering despite an offer by Hutchens Tuesday to abide by conditions set by supervisors for viewing the tapes.

Britain: Nanny State Police Crashing 25th Wedding Anniversary Party

Helicopters, masked police, snipers on the roof, the works. The reason? Somebody got scared of guns. Nope, not real guns; those are banned in England. Toy guns carried by the partygoers as props for the Wild West themed party.

FoxNews: Guests of a wild west-themed costume party got a scare when a posse of armed police officers stormed into the hootenanny thinking toy guns carried by partygoers were real, several British media outlets reported.

The festivities were held Saturday by Roy and Val Worthington of Leicestershire, England, to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. But the celebration quickly turned into a disaster when three police cars and a helicopter showed up to investigate, the BBC reported.

"It was a bit over the top with the helicopter," Roy Worthington told the BBC.

The Leicestershire Police Department, however, defended the party crashing.

“We have a duty to treat all reports of firearms as genuine,” a police spokeswoman told the Daily Mail newspaper.

In an interview with the BBC, Val Worthington claimed that she had called police last November to notify them that some of her guests may be carrying toy guns.

Click here for a video report from the BBC.

That's how bad both, the socialist state police force of the UK and the majority of the British people got brainwashed in just a little over 10 years of liberal rule. Considering the leaders of the Democrat Party are looking at European nations as the model for America to follow and taking into consideration they have now the political means to do it, be afraid my friends. Be very afraid.

Citizens Grilling The Gun Grabbing O.C. Sheriff

A video recording of the Orange County Board Of Supervisors meeting that took place this morning is now available for viewing.

For up to speed info on why this OC BOS meeting is so important for the Second Amendment rights go here first.

Part 1 - the concealed weapon permit debate starts at 01:44:20 mark on the player with the Sheriff statement. First of the 41 gun rights speakers takes the microphone at 02:08:15 mark)
Part 2 - afternoon session (the last 11 gun rights speakers followed by questions and comments from the OC Board of Supervisors members)

Orange County Board of Supervisors to Hold Hearing on Right-to-Carry Policy Today!

Here is a Live video feed of the Orange County Board Of Supervisors starting at 9:30 AM PST.

What is this meeting all about and why is it so important?

Due to the enormous backlash generated by Sheriff Sandra Hutchens illegal actions among law abiding OC citizens CCW permit holders and gun rights activists, hundreds and hundreds of people are expected to attend the upcoming meeting taking place today February 10th (live video feed starting at 9:30 AM PST).

But what exactly the Sheriff did to generate this kind of backlash? It all started when on December 8th when at the OC Board of Supervisors meeting, hundreds of Second Amendments rights activists came to the Meeting Hall to peacefully express their dissaproval with the newlly appointed Sheriff Sandra Hutchens policy of revoking and restricting the issuance of concealed weapons permits (CCW) to law abiding citizens.

The Sheriff reaction to this simple manifestation of American democracy? Really ugly: we are talking about Sheriff Hutchens deputies singling out and bullying people for simply wearing a button with the letters CCW on it; intimidating and pat down searching of peaceful citizens in attendance; use of undercover deputies; mocking and ridiculing citizens attending in email and Blackberry messages; using surveillance cameras to spy on the Board of Supervisors members who oppose her anti-Second Amendment policies.

For the readers who don't know the story from the beginning read this blog entry first:

Vigilant Citizens In Action: O. C. Gun Grabbing Sheriff And Her Deputies Caught Red Handed

Then this follow-up entry:

More Trouble Coming For The O.C. Gun Grabbing Sheriff And Her Deputies

So if you are a resident of Southern California and you want to be in attendance today here is the address: Board Hearing Room, First Floor, 333 W. Santa Ana Blvd., Santa Ana

If you can't make it there in time, you can watch the live video feed of the meeting starting with 9:30 AM Pacific Standard Time by clicking this link.


Email from a guy attending the OC-BOS meeting:

I'm in the OC BOS chambers now.

I have noticed that the Sheriff is NOT in uniform and wearing her gun.

Maybe she got a CCW???????

Update 2:

CCW policy is item #22, starts at 11:00 AM PST; 37 speakers to take the microphone

Update 3:

Email exchange with meeting participant:

Q: Is there the same show of force as there was last time?

A: No. No "show of force" but there are some OBVIOUS "undercovers" but not a lot.

I was talking with one of the "undercovers" (claimed to be a NRA lifer) and he told me that "the department" was very "touchy" after the last fiasco. He stated that "they" are "using more females for survailance activities" - whatever that means.

More later.......

Update 3:

Starting right now

Update 4:

Major asshwoopin' in progress.

Update 5:

Spectacular ass whooping.

Recess until 1:35 and some clarifications:

Q: Whats the deal with most speakers wearing the bow ties?

A: At the last meeting the Sheriff command staff was texting about one of the speakers mocking his bow tie (something along the lines "look at that guy with the bow tie, do you think he's alive?).
Speakers wearing bow ties today is an unity thing.

Q: What is with the "Friends of Janet" thing some speakers referred to?

A: It's a reference to another text message sent by the Sheriff command staff last meeting saying that (I quote): "Supervisor Janet Nguygen's only friend is a pet". Speakers declaring they are Janet's friends is also an unity thing.

The Only Thriving Sector Of The American Economy Under President Obama Is...

...firearms and ammunition sales and manufacturing.


Uncle Nuge has the answer:

Ted Nugent: Why gun sales are surging
Sunday, February 08, 2009

One sector of the American economy that is booming with the new administration is the absolute orgy of guns and ammunition sales, although I am certain President Barack Obama won’t say anything about this positive economic news.

I read more than one report of the surge of civilian firepower sales when it appeared that Obama would be elected.

Reason: Freedom lovers do not trust Obama.
His choice of Eric Holder to be attorney general bolsters that distrust.

Like Obama, Holder is a gun-control zealot —typical of the loony, anti-freedom wing of the Democratic Party.

Do not believe the president’s thinly veiled statements about supporting an individual’s right to own guns. Rather, review these men’s previous, career-long, freedom-restricting, gun-grabbing statements.

Holder consistently has supported gun bans and raising the age at which someone can purchase a weapon. He’s supported registration and licensing, waiting periods, and his all-time favorite and the felon’s dream: gun-free zones.

Losing in court

Last year Holder signed an amicus brief in support of the Washington, D.C., ban on all handguns and the use of a gun for self-defense in D.C. homes.

He stated that the Second Amendment wasn’t meant for individuals but was only intended for government militias.

The Supreme Court found otherwise. It repealed DC’s anti-freedom, pro-crime gun-control law. The Supreme Court voted for freedom. The good guys won.

Mysteriously, when Holder worked for President Bill Clinton and was in charge of the instant background check system, the system was routinely broken and off-line. Miraculously, when the Bush administration took over in 2001 the system rarely broke down. I smell a Fedzilla ratfink.

Truth is, what Holder really supports is more law-abiding citizens being victimized by recidivistic, violent punks on parole.

While he is personally protected by heavily armed law-enforcement officers, he does not believe you and I have a right to protect ourselves and our loved ones with a gun. He’s a hypocrite.

Our founding fathers supported an individual’s right to own guns. Unlike Obama and Holder, those vanguards of freedom understood that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness can not be achieved without being able to protect yourself and your loved ones from human scum who would deny you your fundamental God-given rights.

What our new president and his attorney general obviously want is control. Studying other gun-grabbing regimes of the past, they know the first thing that needs to be done to turn us from citizens to subjects is to disarm us.

My advice to American freedom lovers: Buy more guns and ammo, and join the National Rifle Association.

Liberal Insanity: Senior High School Student Faces Expulsion Over Fake Drill Team Rifles

I believe that 17 year old Marie Morrow, senior at Cherokee Trail High School in Aurora was punished with suspension (and possibly with expulsion) not because she had fake drill guns made out of wood, plastic and duct tape in the trunk of her SUV; even a 2 year old has enough expertise to tell the rifles are not real. The cops who took the rifle props in custody said Marie didn't do anything wrong and she can stop to pick them up on the way home. So that's not what triggered Marie's expulsion. I also believe the zero-tolerance law used by the so-called "educators" to explain Marie's unjust punishment just doesn't cut it. I don't buy it.

Marie was punished because she represented the kind of American the liberals infesting our public school system despise most: the best of us. The young men and women who put on the military uniform and go everywhere they are needed to defend our country and our way of life. And that's a capital sin in the eyes of the 60's and 70's peace hippies raised sucking at the tits of Saul Alinsky and Noam Chomsky and who are now in charge of our schools. These despicable libs feel their mission in life is to brainwash our kids into hating America and its imperialist military. Marie Morrow deserved to be taught a lesson because she chose not to listen to them.

Pathetic can't describe this: UK Foster Mom Fired Because Girl Became Christian

Rule Britannia...ruled by Islamic mobs and their Sharia enforcers*

Christian foster mother struck off after Muslim girl converts
UK Telegraph

The woman has been banned by her local council for failing to prevent the teenager from getting baptised, even though the girl was 16 and made up her own mind to change religion.

The carer, a churchgoer in her 50s who has fostered more than 80 children, has now been forced to move out of her home.

She has lost the farmhouse she rented to look after vulnerable teenagers, due to the loss of income.

Another girl she was looking after has been taken back into care.

The woman, who has launched a legal challenge to the council's challenge, told the Daily Telegraph: "I just want to get my life back.

"I still hope to resolve this so that I can possibly foster again in the future as I simply enjoy helping young people."
The ruling has increased concerns that Christians are becoming victims of discrimination in Britain, following the case of Caroline Petrie, the nurse suspended for offering to pray for a patient.

She was subsequently reinstated.

The foster mother, who cannot be named for legal reasons, insists that she did not pressurise the teenager to convert, and actually tried to discourage her initial interest.

The girl, who is now 17, was taken into care after being assaulted by a family member, saw baptism "as a washing away of the horrible things she had been through and a symbol of a new start," the woman said.

"I offered her alternatives. I offered to find her places to practise her own religion.

"I offered to take her to friends or family. But she said to me from the word go: 'I am interested and I want to come [to church]'."

The carer claims that social services were aware that the girl was attending her evangelical church, and council bosses only objected when she they found out she had been baptised.

Apostasy – the repudiation of one's faith – is strongly condemned in the Koran and is considered taboo in Muslim communities.

Officials advised the teenager to reconsider her decision and stop attending Christian meetings, and in November struck the carer off their register, claiming she breached her duty of care as a foster parent.

"They consider that in some way she should have taken steps to prevent the conversion," said solicitor Nigel Priestley, who is representing the carer.

He is demanding a judicial review into the council's decision, claiming they have breached Article 9 of the Human Rights Act, which guarantees freedom of religion for both the carer and the girl.

He said that the teenager, who is now back with her parents, was "distressed" that her private faith had had such repercussions, and is supporting her former carer's legal bid.

Mike Judge of the Christian Institute, which is funding the carer's legal case, said: "I cannot imagine that an atheist foster carer would be struck off if a Christian child in her care stopped believing in God.

"This is the sort of double standard that Christians are facing in Britain."

Mr Priestley said that the council had now offered to review its decision, but said his client was prepared to pursue legal action if her case was not resolved.

The council in the north of Englandm, which also cannot be named, declined to comment on "sensitive issues surrounding a child in care".

The Democrat Party Is A Criminal Enterprise

Next time when your liberal friend / relative* starts whining about how Bush economic policies caused the financial meltdown and how Obama will save America with his GigaPork stimulomarxist package, hit him back hard with this video.

*everybody has at least a retarded friend or relative

Welcome To America. Allah-U-Akhbar!

Something you won't read in the mainstream media or watch on prime time news: Obama signed an Executive Order appropriating over $20 million of your tax money to...hold on to your seats please:

...`migration assistance to the Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza.'

(Link to Presidential Order No. 2009-15 of January 27, 2009)

The order not only provides free airplane tickets but provides for food and housing allowances, something no other immigrants get (H/T JoshuaPundit)

Today in Gaza, tomorrow on Main Street USA

That means thousands and thousands of Hamas supporters and Hamas operatives will benefit form Obama's support to come here and set shop in our country.
They will jump ahead of the line before educated and qualified immigrants with high skills who want to emigrate here to integrate and bring their contribution to America. Instead of increasing the number of professors, scientists and highly skilled workers who are coming to the US, Obama preffers to bring in the Hamas thugs and the people who brought them to power in the Palestinian territories. Instead of educated people who want to come here and become Americans, B. Hussein Obama opens America's front door and rolls the red carpet for Islamic thugs who want to transform America in the Middle East.

Change. You want it, you got it.
