Police officers — whom I call LEOs (legally entitled to oppress) — hate having their authority questioned and can invent all manner of “crimes” with which to charge their victims. Take the case of Kristen Walker as just one example. Her experience was posted on Copblock.org.
If the Republican Party is to have a future, Senator Rand Paul (and Senators who joined him on the floor like Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah and Jeff Flake of Arizona) are it.
On the backs of money debasement, $7 trillion in additional debt and mainstream media propaganda, helicopter Ben Bernanke has created the illusion of a prosperous economy. It’s a bubble that will soon burst. When it does, it will be ugly.
If you’re reading this, then you’re one of the blessed few who somehow survived sequestration. By “blessed few,” I mean “everyone on the planet.” And by “sequestration,” I mean “infinitesimally minor reduction in the growth of our already grotesquely obese government.”
It’s certainly not unusual for collectivist lunacy to come from Illinois. Now comes this from the State with the most restrictive gun laws in the Nation (and likely the most criminals): a bill to require registration for sellers and buyers of gold.
A few days ago, a website called The Truth Is Viral “broke” a story that the Marines from Marines Corps Barracks Washington, D.C., 8th & I who marched in the President Barack Obama inaugural parade were “ringers.” In short, no, they weren’t.
There has been much wailing and teeth gnashing coming from members of the elected class over the sequester “crisis” they invented for themselves. You hear from their propaganda arm mainstream media that the consequences of the sequester occurring will be dire. It’s all political theater.
Reportedly, a bipartisan group of four Senators is just a few dotted Is and crossed Ts from crafting legislation that would bar private sales of firearms without restrictions, including a background check and extensive transaction records.
The Internet is changing the way people get information. The 1 percent don’t like that. A new bill in the Illinois State Senate would require anonymous website comment posters to reveal their identities if they want to keep their comments online.
Gun grabbers love to denigrate 2nd Amendment supporters by claiming their fear that registration leads to confiscation is hyperbole or simple nuttery. And then there is Washington Senate Bill 5737, an “assault weapons” ban introduced last week.
