Media-Enabled Psychopathic Elected Class Launches Full-On Assault

Media-Enabled Psychopathic Elected Class Launches Full-On Assault
PHOTOS.COM

When members of the psychopathic elected class get busy mixing campaigning, legislating sop to their corporatist partners in crime, talking the Constitution out of existence and expanding tyranny from that sewage pit that is our Nation’s capital, the assaults on liberty can seem almost dizzying. Enabled by their propagandists in the mainstream media, they manufacture and then gin up crises, propose freedom-robbing legislation to “save” you from the evils they’ve manufactured and then create yet another crisis to distract you from the last.

Their goal is to overwhelm your senses and hit you from all sides, beating you down so that they can move the bar of tyranny gradually but inexorably leftward. They are content with incremental steps. They use gradualism in their self-created maelstrom of chaos.

With myriad assaults on liberty and our senses occurring now, it seemed impossible to focus on just one this week. So I decided to touch on several at once. Hopefully, this helps make some sense of the chaotic paradigm in which we find ourselves today.

Laws And The Constitution Are Meaningless To The Elected Class

On Thursday, 16 Republicans joined 52 Democratic Senators to override a possible filibuster and begin a treasonous assault on the 2nd Amendment. Two Democrats joined with 29 Republicans and attempted to prevent a gun-control bill from coming up. Unfortunately, the traitors had the 61 votes (68, actually) to override the veto. The two Democrats who stood for the Constitution were Mark Begich of Alaska and Mark Pryor of Arkansas.

These traitorous Republicans proved themselves to be big-government statists and voted against the Constitution along with the statist/progressive Democrats: Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Richard Burr of North Carolina, Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Susan Collins of Maine, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Jeff Flake of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, John Hoeven of North Dakota, Johnny Isakson of Georgia, Dean Heller of Nevada, Mark Kirk of Illinois, John McCain of Arizona, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Roger Wicker of Mississippi.

The bill, deceptively called the Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act, does just the opposite of what its name implies. By getting the bill onto the floor, gun grabbers have pushed open the door for the registration of gun owners. The amendment process will turn it into a Frankenstein monster that could include a ban on so-called “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines.

Any provisions inserted into the bill that would preclude registration or setting up a database of gun owners will be ignored. Proof of this is found in Missouri, where the State’s database of concealed weapons permits was twice given to Federal LEOs (legally entitled to oppress) investigating Social Security disability fraud. This is just one example among many of the Feds getting their hands gun records.

Recently released cables by WikiLeaks reveal the mindset of those who intentionally and over the long term inhabit the Washington cesspool. Globalist Henry Kissinger is quoted as saying: “Before the Freedom of Information Act, I used to say at meetings, ‘The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer.’ [laughter] But since the Freedom of Information Act, I’m afraid to say things like that.” But he is not afraid to mean it.

Leading gun-grabber Senator Diane Feinstein told 60 Minutes that she would ban and confiscate all weapons from “Mr. and Mrs. America” if should get the 51 votes needed to do so. And President Barack Obama, in so many words, said on April 4 that the only thing standing between him and gun confiscation is the Constitution.

Meanwhile, the unConstitutional gun grab is aided and abetted by the mainstream media. (See here and here).

How To Spot A Politician

It’s a simple thing, really, to spot a politician. His stripes change to spots at election time. Take Senator Mitch McConnell as a perfect example.

He’s up for re-election in 2014. As a result, he’s trying to convince Kentuckians that he’s Rand Paul. First, he hired former Paul campaign manager Jesse Benton to run his campaign. Then he endorsed Rand Paul’s filibuster over the regime’s drone policy. Now, he’s lurching right in the gun-control and immigration debates.

Under normal circumstances, McConnell would have joined with the treasonous batch of 16 that voted to move gun-control legislation to the floor for debate. But he’s trying to protect his right flank. Don’t be fooled — as Arizonans apparently were in 2012 with John (the fascist) McCain — by politicians who move right and change to spots at election time. Judge them on the entirety of their terms.

Not to pick on just McConnell, but you can also spot politicians when they speak out of both sides of their mouths. The Senator has repeatedly voted to renew the USA Patriot Act and voted for the National Defense Authorization Act, two unConstitutional, amendment-destroying provisions that enable the government to spy on Americans, rifle through financial records, listen in on their private communications and throw them into gulags, never to be heard from again. He says nothing about the Internal Revenue Service’s claim that it can read private emails and text messages without a warrant.

But he was apparently so offended when someone bugged his campaign office that he called the FBI to investigate who leaked a recording of him and his campaign team talking about opposition research on Ashley Judd, who was once thought to be a possible general election opponent.

Now you know how we all feel, Mitch.

The War On Terror

Obama’s conduct of the “War on Terror” would be a comedy if so many innocents weren’t dying because of it.

The regime is admittedly arming al-Qaida-related terrorist groups fighting in Syria, including one named the Al Nusra Front. Some of these fighters have shot at Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the Al Nusra Front is designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. regime. But it shares the regime’s goal of bringing down Syrian President Bashar Assad.

American Eric Harroun is now imprisoned in the United States, charged with using a weapon of mass destruction (a rocket-propelled grenade) in Syria. It was likely an America-supplied weapon and he used it while fighting alongside the Al Nusra Front against Assad forces. Now Harroun is considered by the U.S. to be a terrorist.

The prosecutor in the case says Americans fighting for the Free Syrian Army or who purchase weapons for them are breaking the law. No word from the prosecutor on why this doesn’t apply to Obama as he continues to funnel weapons to terrorists.

Senator Ted Cruz recently pointed out that Obama’s views about Federal power “knows virtually no bounds.” That must explain why he (Obama) thinks it’s perfectly OK for him and his Justice Department to decide which American will be the next drone target, what type of health insurance coverage a business or institution must provide, which minister a church can appoint, which laws and sections of the Bill of Rights are relevant and that Bible-believing, Constitution-supporting Americans are potential terrorists who should be subjected to additional surveillance.

More Lies About An Improving Economy

If the economy is improving, as the regime continues to maintain, where have all the workers gone? Why have 16 million people gone on food stamps under Obama’s tenure? Why are almost 9 million Americans of working age on disability? Why is the Federal government feeding kids three meals a day — even during the summer?

Why are tunnel “cities” being found in and around major U.S. cities.

Why are the globalist-controlled media intentionally trying to drive down the price of gold with fake stories about the sale of Cypriot gold reserves in another effort to force down its price. Why are big banks saying it’s time to sell all gold while they are buying it at almost unprecedented levels? Why are countries (and Texas) asking for the Federal Reserve for their gold back?

Why did consumer confidence just plummet to a nine-month low? And why are retailers eliminating stores and cutting jobs like never before?

    Please, Mr. Bob. Be specific in which “freedoms” you are loosing? I get into my Automobile and drive to the grocery store with no problems. I could go to the library and check out any book that’s there. In fact, I could do all of these things in the nude. However, I understand that may be a little tacky, maybe even “illegal”. Holy crap! My rights to run around nude are under attack!

    The people you call “psychopathic” were elected by 50% plus 1 of the voters. I guess you just don’t want to go along with the majority. I understand. I’m sure that guns are NOT going to be confiscated en mass. However, that doesn’t excuse OUR legislators from doing the job we elected them to do. Gun “control” is just that. And you, being the “rebel” HATE the fact that the majority of the people want action on this issue.

        KG: Please, Mr. Bob. Be specific in which “freedoms” you are loosing?

        Well, just under Obama’s death-care, 5 in particular:

        1) Freedom to choose what’s in your plan.
        2) Freedom to be rewarded for healthy living, or pay your real costs.
        3) Freedom to choose high-deductible coverage.
        4) Freedom to keep your existing plan.
        5) Freedom to choose your doctors.

        Then there are these:

        FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION: Government may monitor religious and political institutions without suspecting criminal activity to assist terror investigations.

        FREEDOM OF INFORMATION: Government has closed once-public immigration hearings, has secretly detained hundreds of people without charges, and has encouraged bureaucrats to resist public records questions.

        FREEDOM OF SPEECH: Government may prosecute librarians or keepers of any other records if they tell anyone that the government subpoenaed information related to a terror investigation.

        RIGHT TO LEGAL REPRESENTATION: Government may monitor federal prison jailhouse conversations between attorneys and clients, and deny lawyers to Americans accused of crimes.

        FREEDOM FROM UNREASONABLE SEARCHES: Government may search and seize Americans’ papers and effects without probable cause to assist terror investigation.

        RIGHT TO A SPEEDY AND PUBLIC TRIAL: Government may jail Americans indefinitely without a trial.

        RIGHT TO LIBERTY: Americans may be jailed without being charged or being able to confront witnesses against them.

        Whether or not individual Americans have been personally subjected to tyranny as a result of lost freedoms doesn’t change the fact that they have already lost these freedoms!

    • mtj3134

      None of the legislation that I read about would have altered Sandyhook or Colorado But you want the legislation anyway ? Criminals do not follow the law and they, criminals, will always have guns
      Legislation is simply more rules to entangle law abiding citizens and it is shameful

      • amerall

        Totally agree. I will never admit I have any guns, I have no registered guns, I will never turn in the guns I don’t have for any reason, regardless of any laws that are passed. Any guns I don’t have will be kept in a safe place off my property that only I have access to where a search of my home will not give them up. Now how effective are your NEW laws? Are there any more people like me out there who don’t own guns? PS. I have never even had a traffic ticket!

    • http://www.facebook.com/devon.davis.35 Devon Davis

      but it tares at the constitoin the real law of our land and its not even gun control its the problem its mental health and if its the children we want to save stop abortion oh its ok because no 1 wanted these children right,so please kg take your ass back to germany preferibley nazi germany oh wait thats here now

    • BTeboe

      Hey KG you left off the “B” in your name, ie KGB. I don’t want to live with the govt knowing my every move, reading my every email, or listening to my every phone call. It’s called nunya as in nunya bidness. So is my right to privacy on whether I own any weapons Spread your Marxist crappola on some other site. We don’t like you.

    • amerall

      Which freedoms did you lose? The freedom to go to that library without the government having knowledge that you did! The freedom to check out that book you checked out without the government knowing what book it was! The freedom to own any kind of gun you may choose to own as per the second amendment, (it hasent been repealed yet and until it is it is THE LAW) Shall not be “INFRINGED” is an all inclusive and discriptive word look it up! The freedom to talk with your brother, mother, father, sister or friends without the government listening in to every word you say! The freedom to raise your children with “MORALS” homosexuality is a devient disorder and nature instills a natural revulsion to it in every “NORMAL” human! Without that revulsion the human race would cease to exist! (Note a phobia is a rare overwhelming disoder assoiated with a tiny fraction of a population, not a feeling shared by an overwhelming majority of those people.) Our schools can’t teach our children to read, wright or do mathmatics but they can teach social diversity, sexual and otherwise! The freedom to choose if you can afford health insurance and not have to choose between that and food! The freedom to expect our elected leaders to uphold the entire constitution every part of it including the parts they deem irrevelent exactly as it was written! Withour exception exactly as the oath they took to defend and uphold that constitution, even fifty and one dont have any right to ignore it, this IS not a Democracy, it Is a Republic! Your not the only person allowed to vote I get a vote too and my elected representitives are ignoring my wishs and choosing to follow yours even though you are a miniority on most of these matters! The lying propagandist media supports your views as being the majority even though they are not, simply because your views more closely parralel theirs! You seem to think that because the liberal media says it is so then by god it must be! Their polls are modified to meet their purposes and to give liberal socialist parasites a feeling of revelence! Yes forty percent or more of our sociaties parasites live off my paycheck. that forty plus per cent will never vote to have to get a job, Wake up libs there are no free lunchs! One way or another you pay for everything you get! Sandy Hook and Colombine were a result of modern “NO DISIPLINE” child raising, not “GUNS.” It is against the law to teach your children that they cant win every time, cant have their own way, cant throw a fit anytime they dont get their way, must learn to deal with bullies, (they never go away even in adult life!) You dont get a trophy even if you lose, get over it and deal with reality! A few welts from a switch across their backsides when these liberal raised snot nosed brats misbehaved would have taught them self control and respect for others rights, you know like in the sixties, (When our children learned in church right from wrong) If these miscreants had been properly disiplined when they were children there would not be any such events!!!!!

      • nc

        Amerall. You want “the freedom to check out that book you checked out without the government knowing what book it was.”
        I recall a case where a woman was suspected of poisoning one or more people> The government (police) went to the library and inspected books she had used and found her fingerprints on the pages related to the same poison used on the victim! They used that evidence against her! Do you really think the government should have been denied that circumstantial evidence of murder?? What about suspected terrorist connection to bomb making material in a public library? Just asking!!

        • Average Joe

          “I recall a case where …”

          Really? Where is your evidence of that? (as usual, fact by bald assertion).

          ” Do you really think the government should have been denied that circumstantial evidence of murder??”

          That all depends on how the evidence was obtained…if it was done in a Constitutional manner ( note: I did not say legal) then, by all means allow the evidence into court proceedings. However, if it was not done in a Constitutional manner (ie. obtained without proper warrant being issued) then, absolutely no, it should not be admitted as evidence. Any more silly questions?

          “What about suspected…?”
          9(of course there is)
          What about them? Please refer to the above silly question that you asked…. and my reply. Repeat if necessary.

          As per your usual ramblings, you add nothing of value, say nothing of substance.

          Should you strive to do better? Yes

          Do we expect you to do better? Yes

          Is it likely to happen? No
          AJ

          • NC

            Average Joe, Amerall mentioned no search warrants! It appeared she wanted an absolute protection! That is the nature of the conservatives! They are ALWAYS SO SURE OF THEIR POSTITIONS THAT THEY EXPECT EVERYONE AND THE CONSTITUTION TO ROLL OVER and accept their positions!
            MAY THAT NEVER HAPPEN! WE WOULD BE BACK IN THE 18TH CENTURY POLICY OF SEVERAL MILLION PEOPLE TRYING TO PROVIDE A WORKING GOVERNMENT TO 300+MILLION IN A FAR DIFFERENT WORLD!!

        • amerall

          I did not imply that the things you have pointed out are in any way a loss of freedom. They were legal and proper because there was “probable cause” My objection is that our government listens to and impose’s it’s self on our daily lives. They spy on thousands of law abiding citizens who have never broken any laws by simply broadcasting a net that might catch someone doing something they don’t like. People in communist China can get in their car and go to the library, that ability does not comprise freedom.

      • Jeff

        “Our schools can’t teach our children to read, wright or do mathmatics but they can teach social diversity, sexual and otherwise!”

        Clearly, they taught you nothing, yet you seem to “know everything.” You’re quite a Renaissance Man with your gun in your hand. Does it do ALL your thinking for you? Mass shooters are one in a million, but you want to blame their existence on bad parenting? The only thing that makes a mass shooter different from any other troubled kid is his easy access to powerful guns. Make it more difficult for him to get his hands on a gun, and certainly one capable of firing 100 rounds in a minute, and he’s just like any other troubled kid.

        • amerall

          KIDS wouldn’t be troubled if they were disciplined properly! I raised three of them not one of them was ever “Troubled” They were however “Disciplined” enough to become adults anyone would be proud of. Oh by the way all the laws made or proposed to curb guns are as worthless in getting guns away from the reach of crazies as the laws that already exist are. Too bad the gun ban wasn’t in effect in Boston that would have prevented that incident! Right? Not bad parenting? How many of these things occurred in the sixties when parents actually took an interest in their children’s well being enough to discipline them? A hundred rounds in a minute? Welll.. I personally tried an experiment using a six round per magazine limit, I taped four of them together. It took less than one second to switch between them… I can carry a dozen of these taped together clips soo.. a limit on the number of rounds is a deterrent how? Oh by the way if as you point out these things are a one in a milion occurrence meaning only a minute percentage of the population is even capable of doing such things. Why should the entire USA be put in jeopardy of tyranny because of such a tiny percent who cant be stopped anyway? Oh by the way I DO KNOW WHY THE SECOND AMENDMENT WAS SO IMPORTANT TO OUR FOUNDING FATHERS THEY SPELLED IT OUT.TYRANNY! No government left to pursue its desires without limits will fail to follow those desires! A country is kept free only by the vigilance of its citizens!!! Not by its Armies! There is no utopia! Freedom must be earned every day!

      • http://www.facebook.com/jeff.samuels.127 Jeff

        If it’s so easy to change clips, why are there so many instances where potential victims escape while the gunman is reloading? [Sandy Hook] Why are there so many instances where the gunman is disarmed by an unarmed bystander while he’s reloading? [Tucson]

        I am sure that you are so adept you can change magazines like you breathe, but not everyone is such a certified gun nut, particularly under stress. There are guys on youtube who can change clips without missing a beat just like there are runners who can complete the marathon in just over two hours. Most cannot. If Adam Lanza had had only 10 round clips, he’d have had to change clips 14 times to fire as many rounds as he did and many of the children who died would still be alive. Tell their parents about YOUR God-given right not to be inconvenienced by taking a few seconds to change clips while you pretend to be Rambo. I’d like to be able to buy a Ferrari and drive it 200 mph on the Freeway, too, but I recognize other people have rights, too.

    • Capitalist at Birth

      That means that over 50 % of those voters are either “psychopathic” or UNINFORMED. Take your pick.

      • Hey You

        My guess is that those who are elected are psychopathic” where as those who vote are uninformed. In fact, the mix seems to go together.

    • The Christian American

      We are, were, a constitutional republic. Everybody had rights, including the minority. Now we are a democracy, the worst form of government known to man. Franklin defined one as “Two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for lunch”. The government was governed by the Constitution, not put there to replace God in our lives.

  • Warrior

    And here I thought “climate change”, may produce the “prosperous” results that YK2 did. Give the “busy people” lots of credit though, they’re going deeper into their “bag” to find the that perfect “recipe” for “Utopian Stew”!

    KG you are a left wing socialist fool that was apperantly brainwashed thru our sub-standard college system.Bob and millions of free thinking citizens know that the supposed 50% are ignorant to the Constitution and have drank so much kool-aide that you really believe the lies you spew.All hell could break loose and you would deny it.

  • nc

    Mr. Livingston. why would voting to move any legislation to the floor for “debate” be a “treasonous” act when the Constitution provides for just such practices by the Congress? Doing things YOU don’t like does not raise it to the level of treason!
    The Constitution recognizes treason may occur, but it does not name PLD as the arbiter! What is treasonous about “debate” under the First Amendment and other provisions of the Constitution?
    When did you realize that your concept of “America” had passed you by??

    • hungry4food

      This could be treason against the American People …….. Congress is suppose to protect us all from all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC and that Includes Those would want to Profit from the manufactured Illnesses that they are allowed to create by a HHS agencies that is Looking the other way when regulating what the Big Pharma wants to take peoples money for thats causing Illnesses !!!

    • Dave

      Conservatives do not believe in debate or new ideas nc. They believe it is their way nor no way and no new ideas should be brought forth if it violates what they believe is “true”. Their record since 2010 is quite clear on this.

    • chocopot

      Why is debate treasonous, you want to know. When it comes to taking away clearly-defined rights that belong to each and every American, then that is treason. My rights are spelled out in the Bill of Rights. There is nothing to debate, and nothing to discuss. When the self-anointed elite in DC get together to determine which of my rights they have decided to limit, diminish, or remove entirely, that is treason. Clear enough for you?

      • Flashy

        I guess we should do away with the Supreme Court since y’all know the Constitution and can tell us what it allows and not allow. Jeesh … y’all ranted about Obamacare being unConstitutional…seems it is. Oops. Seems y’all rant that Women’s Choice is unConstitutional. Seems it is. Ooops. Seems y’all state that a whole lot of policies are unConstitutional…yet it turns out they are Constitutional.

        Perhaps you should READ the Constitution and the decisions over the years which have clarified the meaning ! Education and knowledge…a dangerous weapon against the extremists…

        • chocopot

          Instead of spouting off your standard left-wing crap, day after day, perhaps you should read the Constitution and The Federalist Papers so you can understand the meaning behind the words of the Constitution, written and explained by the people who wrote the Constitution in the first place. You will find out just how wrong you and our elected officials (and the Supreme Court) are about so many things.

        • chocopot

          By the way, Flashy, since you mention Supreme Court decisions, let’s talk, as an example, about the Dred Scott decision. Lefties like you love to throw that one in everyone’s face when it suits you, but you are now spouting off all about Supreme Court decisions like those people, who have their own biases, never get it wrong.

          • Flashy

            There have been rare instances where a later Supreme Court has decided a prior decision was either wrong or the Court failed to address other avenues in the Constitution which would have affected the opinion being overturned. Citing the 1857 case of Dred Scott is inapplicable as the Constitution was amended via the 14th after the civil war to attend to that issue. As well, Federal Law was enacted which pre-empted the issues which Dred Scott was decided. if you have a cite, you may want to post the Supreme Court decision overturning Dred Scott…wait..there isn’t any. oops.

            What you may want to cite instead is the Loechner case and later being overruled by Adams. Yet, even there the Court in Adams had to reconcile two different decisions and while not explicitly overturning Loechner, did limit it to be basically ineffective.

            perhaps the most impactive and most famous of the very rare cases overturned later is the 1896 case of Plessy V Ferguson which ruled that segregation was Constitutional. The Court overturned Plessy in it’s famous brown V board of Education which the Court stated that segregatio0n may have been viewed at one time as not having discriminatory effects and harming of the social being of the nation, but facts and history show that segregation resulted in impacts which indeed were unConstitutional. Scholars have debated for long hours and tomes of writing whether Plessy was correct HAD the impact been equal and that segregation not have had the ugly side of discrimination against races other than White.

            Please…understand your Constitution and our government before spouting off on things you have not a clue about.

          • chocopot

            I understand my government all too well. Perhaps you like the gradual loss of freedoms we have been enduring – I and a great many others do not. Our nation is now being run by an arrogant bunch of self-anointed, hypocritical, elitist a–holes, and I have no respect for any of our political parties since they are all part of the problem. They all seem to think they are above the laws, which are only for the peasants like us to obey, and they think we are their servants, when it is supposed to be the other way around. None of what you wrote changes any part of what I wrote. With that said, I have a job and I do not have any more time to write back and forth with you.

        • Savage

          Flashy,

          By your comment about the Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare, I don’t believe you have read their ruling — have you?

          In its ruling, the court held that the law could not be upheld under the Commerce Clause, which was the government’s primary argument in its support. “The Federal Government does not have the power to order people to buy health insurance,”Roberts wrote for the majority.

          But wait—doesn’t that mean the law should’ve been struck down?

          The Commerce Clause argument was only one of three the government made in support of the law. It also argued that the law could be considered a tax, and this is the argument the court bought.

          Specifically, the court held that the individual mandate is not a “penalty,” as the health-care law identified it, but a tax, and therefore a constitutional application of Congress’s taxation power.

          I read the health bill/law and was not surprised that the Court ruled it as a “taxing system” — Weren’t you curious why Obama would place the health care law under the control of the IRS ??

          • Flashy

            Three? really? i know of two. The Commerce Clause and the Taxing powers of the government. The SCOTUS did not find the power under the Commerce Clause regulating Interstate Commerce…but did find the Mandate within the taxing powers of the government.

            BTW…the IRS is not the controlling agency for Obamacare. Nice try…but try again

            Bottom line, Obamacare was found to be Constitutional.

        • Frank Kahn

          Hello Flashy, nice weather we have today.

          Obamacare is unconstitutional from its inception. The fact that they lied and said that a penalty was actually a tax, making it constitutional does not make it so. A penalty, is a fine, the fact that the fine is collected by the IRS does not make it a tax. The supreme court agreeing that it is a tax does not make it a tax, it makes the supreme court wrong.

          Choice is not a right, and since choice is not referenced in the constitution it is not a constitutional matter. If you start getting stupid, like so many other liberals, and start calling it a right then it is against the constitution. Women do not have a constitutional RIGHT to an abortion, actually the equal protection under the law gives the unborn child the same right to life as the mother. The only problem is with the morally corrupt people that claim a baby is not a human till it is born.

          So, what exactly do you want to claim about policies that are constitutional?

          • Flashy

            Frank…hate to be the one to break this to you, but you stating something is unConstitutional does not make it so. That you WANT something to be outside the Constitution, that you wish something be unConstitutional, matter not.

            That’s one of the nice things living with that document…it gives rights and limits government powers for all, not just those who, based upon their beliefs and a twisted sense of divine power wish to stifle for some and expand it for themselves.

            I believe that the appellate courts were correct and Obamacare was Constitutional based upon the Commerce Clause. The SCOTUS says i am wrong. I defer to the SCOTUS as far better to interpret the applications of the law to the document.

            Im believe the government has the power to require gun owner registration. ou most likely do not. Since we disagree…who decides whom is correct?

            And would you continue to act as a petulant teenager throwing a tantrum because you didn’t like the rules because you couldn’t have what you wanted?

        Chocopot, you say that your rights are in the Bill of Rights and there is nothing to debate and nothing to discuss! Do you know how many CHOCOPOTS that have run into the streets with a gun in hand and announcing their “rights” have been carried away in a body bag?
        If you live long enough you need to go to a law library and study the US Supreme Court Reports where citizens much smarter than you have been told by the Court, in compliance with the Constitutional provisions, that THEIR INTERPRETATIONS OF THIER “RIGHTS” WERE NOT CORRECT!! THEY WERE MISINFORMED AS TO THEIR RIGHTS!
        IF YOU ARE WRONG ABOUT THE RIGHT(s) YOU THINK YOU HAVE AND CHALLENGE THE WRONG PERSON (POLICE), ONE MORE WHITE SHIRT MAY BE ALL YOU WILL EVER NEED!

        • chocopot

          I wish you made some sense. I have no idea what your point is. But to use your example, anyone who rushes into the street for no apparent reason and waves a gun around while shouting nonsense is asking to be taken out by the police. That is not what I am referring to in any way, shape, or form. And now, as I told Flashy, I have a job and no more time for this nonsense today.

  • FreedomFighter

    Mr Livingston I must say this is your most to the point article so far
    “psychopathic elected class get busy mixing campaigning, legislating sop to their corporatist partners in crime, talking the Constitution out of existence and expanding tyranny”
    More Americans need to realize this current crop of elites is bought and paid for, and not by the American people, whom they should represent and are not.
    Their goals are to destroy the constitution and institute a New World Order
    They must disarm the American people, it has nothing to do with public safety, nothing to do with saving children's lives and everything to do with tyrannical power and control
    Their goal is to overwhelm your senses and hit you from all sides, beating you down so that they can move the bar of tyranny gradually but inexorably leftward. They are content with incremental steps. They use gradualism in their self-created maelstrom of chaos.
    Ted Nugent said and I am paraphrasing here:
    “NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER NEVER NEVER GIVE IN, YOU CAN STOP THEM, REVERSE THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAWS AND REMOVE FROM OFFICE THESE LIBERAL TRAITORS TO THE CONSTITUTION”
    i Think a relisting of the Republican or RINOs should be reiterated:
    Lamar Alexander of Tennessee,
    Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire,
    Richard Burr of North Carolina,
    Saxby Chambliss of Georgia,
    Tom Coburn of Oklahoma,
    Susan Collins of Maine,
    Bob Corker of Tennessee,
    Jeff Flake of Arizona,
    Lindsey Graham of South Carolina,
    John Hoeven of North Dakota,
    Johnny Isakson of Georgia,
    Dean Heller of Nevada,
    Mark Kirk of Illinois,
    John McCain of Arizona,
    Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and
    Roger Wicker of Mississippi.

    These RINOs need to be targeted for replacement, removed from office, targeted for emails, town hall meetings, campained against, recalled if possible, right along with every democrat that voted for this infringement of our rights as Americans

    “The regime is admittedly arming al-Qaida-related terrorist groups fighting in Syria, including one named the Al Nusra Front.”
    So they are putting American soldiers in harm’s way and arming those that are killing them, then trying to DISARM the rest of us. This is like something out of a Mark Twain novel.

    Judge by what they do, not what is said or promised. The Constitution, law, and truth are good places to start. If a law is passed without comprehensive reading and full understanding, there is no truth or law. If a legislator votes for or advocates for a law that violates the Constitution, they violate oath of office and should be impeached! Any Amendment can be legally changed; but until then, violating it by passing a law contrary to supreme law of the land is treachery designed to overthrow Constitutional government! The same is true of illegal aliens being given citizen benefits, voting rights, and a free pass to violate both Constitution and statutes thereunder!

    Holder, as US AG, is a prime example of freely and openly defying Constitution and statute – thumbing his nose at the legislature – suing states to obstruct and corrupt the voting process, etc. The legislature can and must prosecute him first! Failure of the House to act because they believe the Senate will do nothing proves CORRUPTION RULES THE EXECUTIVE and BOTH LEGISATIVE BODIES!

  • Dave

    Ah the old “loss of freedom” charade….

    Bob is once again using the loss of economic power for middle middle class and poor to further HIS and his like minded allies agenda.

    The 2nd Amendment… If you notice, Obama in his first 4 years as president did nothing to the second amendment with the exception of EXPANDING the rights of gun owers to carry weapons on federal land. But that doesn’t stop Bob or his allies from wracheting up fear… Then a terrible tragedy happens in Newtown CT and Obama put forth a proposal:

    1) Requires background checks for all gun sales and strengthens the background check system. This would include removing barriers under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act so that states may more freely share information about mental health issues involving potential gun purchasers.

    (No “Gun Grab here”, most people favor this common sense move)

    2) Provides states with monetary incentives—$20 million in fiscal year FY 2013 and a proposed $50 million in FY 2014—to share information so that records on criminal history and people prohibited from gun ownership due to mental health reasons are more available.

    (No “Gun Grab”, many would say this common sense)

    3) Bans military-style assault weapons and limits magazines to a capacity of 10 rounds.

    (The only gun restriction in the whole proposal and I believe this makes sense because assault weapons and high capacity magazines only purpose is to inflict max casualties and these are not needed on the street. The 2nd Amendemnt is not without limits just like the 1st Amendment)

    4) Provides additional tools to law enforcement. The plan proposes a crackdown on gun trafficking by asking Congress to pass legislation that closes “loopholes” in gun trafficking laws and establishes strict penalties for “straw purchasers” who pass a background check and then pass guns on to prohibited people.

    (Again, common sense and no “gun grab”)

    5) Urges Congress to pass the administration’s $4 billion proposal to keep 15,000 state and local police officers on the street to help deter gun crime.

    (No gun grab)

    5) Maximizes efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime. The president calls upon the attorney general to work with U.S. attorneys across the country to determine gaps occurring in this area and where supplemental resources are appropriate.

    (no gun grab, if the NRA has any meaningful suggestions on how to lessen violence I would like to here it)

    6) Provides training for “active shooter” situations to 14,000 law enforcement, first responders and school officials.

    (no gun grab)

    7) Directs the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to issue a statement to health care providers that they are not prohibited by federal law from reporting threats of violence to the proper authorities.

    (no gun grab)

    8) Launches a national gun safety campaign to encourage responsible gun ownership and authorizes the Consumer Product Safety Commission to examine issues relating to gun safety locks.

    (Gun safety, no gun grab)

    9) Helps schools invest in safety. The president’s plan calls for more school resource officers and counselors in all schools through the Community Oriented Policing Services hiring program. The plan also calls for the federal government to assist schools in developing emergency management plans.

    (no gun grab)

    10) Improves mental health awareness through enhanced teacher training and referrals for treatment. The plan calls for the training of 5,000 additional mental health professionals nationwide. The plan also calls for coverage of mental health treatment under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008.

    (no gun grab)

    Yet the extremists in the NRA and Bob who care nothing about society or the level of violence in this country as proven by their actions and rhetoric dismiss all of it. The NRA only care about one thing….Gun Sales.

    There are few more powerful organizations in Congress than the NRA and this is why nothing has been done in the wake of the mass shootings. Bob and the NRA want nothing to be done but to anyone who wants a gun to be able to have any type of gun the minute they want one. Thats what greed and selfishness gets you. You put your money before the good of society.

    Bob’s version of treason is anyone who disagrees with his positions and view of the world.

    Bob is right on one thing, The “War on Terror” is a ruse on the people of this country. It is what the conservatives like George H W Bush served up to this country to take the place of the old boogeyman “Communism” that they false put forth. The defense industry needs fuel to justify their 700B a year budget/corp welfare.

    In the end, Bob says he is a liberatrian because he wants to be “left alone” even though his site bio has him as a conservative. Bob is an illustration of a perversion of of the libertarian movement, he wants to have everything this country allows but hates to have to play by the laws he doesn’t agree with or pay for what keeps this society that has changes somewhat since the 1800’s going. He also seems to be fine with states like NC trying to make a state religion in clear violation of the 1st Amendment but since its Christianity, That assault on liberty seems to be fine with Bob since he doesn’t harp on that like he does about ANY gun safety legislation.

    There is no loss of freedom… There is only loss of economic power and the conservatives like Reagan, Greenspan, Regan, Gramm etc have played a large role in that loss. In this country, its money that gives you a greater feeling of being free. We are living with the end result of Reagonomics and Clintonomics.

        The Kenyan Fraud’s team “obama organizing for America” created Cyber Army thru DHS and developed the massive DISINFORMATION campaign to attack Conservative Anti-obama sites, Christians, all those, who oppose the Kenyan FRAUD’s agenda/policies.

        http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=BbGjGn-zlG4

There are 100 million gun owners in America with 300 million guns. Do you really think these people want Universal Background Checks? Obama won the election by fraud and those Americans making less than $30,000 a year low information voters put him over the top. He only won by 3 million votes. And 2 million Americans did not vote at all. Most of America did not and does not want what Obama is selling.

          Lets add our hatred for people like you, who have not one clue what is best for OUR country.

          You fail to understand that what you said is stupid. Our hatred for Obama is born of our love for America. This is not a GOP or conservative opinion, it is just a fact. Obama sucks at leadership and has no clue how to participate in negotiations for creating bipartisan solutions.

          He is a worthless lying piece of bull feces. And you are no better, your crap about the anti-gun legislation is so far out in space that it is hard to believe that you actually live on this planet.

          NO DAMN RESTRICTIONS ON PURCHASE OR POSSESSION OF ARMS IS ALLOWED. IF I PURCHASE A GUN, AND THEN MAKE THE MISTAKE OF SELLING IT TO YOU, IT IS NOT A CRIMINAL ACT ON MY PART WHEN YOU FLIP OUT, LIKE ALL THE OTHER LIBERAL MASS MURDERS, AND KILL SOMEONE WITH THE GUN I SOLD YOU. SO MUCH FOR YOUR INSANE STRAW PURCHASER ARGUMENT. YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT GUNS I OWN, WELL YOU WILL HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY IF I COMMIT A CRIME WITH ONE, NOT ONE SECOND BEFORE. YOU THINK IT IS OKAY TO VIOLATE THE HIPPA LAWS? YOU THINK IT IS OKAY TO GIVE DOCTORS THE POWER TO TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY? WHAT TYPE OF ACID ARE YOU TAKING? AR-15’S ARE NOT ASSAULT WEAPONS, THEY ARE NOT MILITARY GRADE WEAPONS EITHER. HIGH CAPACITY MAGAZINES WERE NOT DESIGNED FOR MASS MURDER. LIBERALS SHOULD ALL GO LIVE IN FRANCE WITH THE REST OF THE COWARDS.

          DO YOU KNOW WHAT JUSTIFIABLE HOMICIDE IS? IT IS WHEN THE KILLING IS JUSTIFIABLE WHEN VIEWED BY LOGICAL AND REASONABLE PEOPLE. IT IS LOGICAL AND REASONABLE TO KILL ALL ANTI-GUN PEOPLE BECAUSE THEIR ACTIONS ARE ENDANGERING THE SAFETY OF ALL AMERICANS.

          I suggest you line up with that moron RBT, so you can be my second shot in the shooting competition.

          NOW, DESPITE THE CRAP THAT DEERINWATER SPEWS, I AM NOT A REPUBLICAN, I AM NOT A CONSERVATIVE. I AM A CENTRIST AND I FORM MY OWN OPINIONS WITHOUT WATCHING ANY NEWS FROM ANY NETWORK.

          MY VIEWS ARE THE RESULT OF LOGICAL AND REASONABLE ASSESSMENT OF WHAT I SEE HAPPENING IN THIS COUNTRY. I LISTEN TO THE PERPETUAL LIES BEING TOLD BY THE ALIEN NATIONAL THAT IS PRETENDING TO BE PRESIDENT. I BELIEVE THAT ABORTION IS MURDER AND ALL ABORTIONISTS SHOULD BE TRIED FOR MURDER AND RECEIVE THE DEATH SENTENCE FOR THEIR MASS MURDERING OF INNOCENT CHILDREN. ALL EXTREME ENVIRONMENTALIST SHOULD BE GIVEN THEIR OWN PRIVATE ISLAND SO THEY CAN LIVE IN HARMONY WITH NATURE. ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE LIVING OFF WELFARE BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO STUPID OR LAZY TO GET A JOB SHOULD BE PUT ON A DESERT ISLAND TO SURVIVE OR DIE ON THEIR OWN ABILITY TO PROVIDE FOR THEMSELVES.

          America was never intended to be a socialist republic, and the government was NEVER meant to make sure everyone is safe at any cost. Taking away personal freedom is not acceptable even to keep us safe, that is not the government’s job discription! It is not the government’s place to provide for all the wants of it’s people. You have the responsibility to provide your own support! Get a job! Go to work! Not everyone gets to live in the same lifestyle. Get over it! Some people just dont get it, they think the rich should be forced to share their wealth (The wealth they EARNED) with those less fortunate so everyone gets to live in the same lifestyle. One word COMMUNISM! It wont work has NEVER worked in any country it has been tried in and will never work because there are those who refuse to work and put in a fair days work for the things they get. The poor think that they deserve a handout and dont think they should have to expend any energy to get it! They think that the rich somehow just woke up rich. People had one hundred thousand dollar a year jobs, they were sent overseas, they arent comming back! ever! WAKE UP! You are going to have to start over, maybe even at the bottom at minimum wage, thats life there are no guarentees! If no one can make enough to feed themselves on minimum wage’s why are there thousands of illegals living here on those wage’s? SUCK IT UP BUBBA! The rich dont owe anyone anything. The world doesent owe you a living!

      ” …with the exception of EXPANDING the rights of gun owers to carry weapons on federal land.”
      A blatant lie. obama in fact reversed the Bush adminstration’s rule allowing the concealed carry on federal land. A congressman alertly got an amendment allowing it attached to a bill obama desprately wanted. Obama had a than had a choice, accept the amendment and sign the bill he wanted or veto the bill.

      • Dave

        Ummm yeah… from the Washington Post in 2010.

        The federal government will lift long-standing restrictions on guns in national parks Monday, meaning that visitors with proper permits could pack heat along with camping and picnic gear to most of the 392 parks. The move concerns current and former employees of the National Park Service who are convinced that the move will damage the spirit of the nation’s park system.

        Depending on state gun laws, visitors will be able to carry concealed and loaded guns into parks, the Park Service said.

        The District bans people from carrying firearms; Maryland law allows gun owners with permits to carry handguns and rifles. Virginia allows for open and concealed carrying with proper permits and has reciprocity agreements with 30 states.

        West Virginia, home to Harpers Ferry National Historical Site, allows for open carrying but requires a state permit for concealed firearms.

        The Park Service has spent months preparing for the new law, holding conference calls in recent days with park supervisors to review the changes and ensure they prepare signage and talking points for visitors, spokesman David Barna said.

        Differing state restrictions make understanding the new law complicated, especially for parks situated in more than one state, Barna said. Supervisors will have to ensure that tourists keep guns out of visitor centers and rangers’ office buildings, because federal law bans firearms in federal facilities. But guns could be carried into private lodges or concession stands, depending on state laws.

        “The burden for the public rests with knowing what the law is in the state that you’re in, in a similar way that you have to know the automotive or marriage license laws of the state you’re in,” Barna said. Park Web sites will provide links to states’ gun laws, he said.

        In the Washington area, gun owners will be able to carry a firearm into the Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, but not beyond the ticketed entrances to the Filene Center, the park’s amphitheater.

        “Whether you sit on the lawn or under the canopy, firearms are prohibited,” said Park Service regional spokesman Bill Line. Private restaurants on the grounds will also ban weapons, Line said.

        Congress lifted the gun ban last spring, after years of efforts by a bipartisan coalition that said differences in state and federal firearms laws made it difficult for gun owners to travel between state and federal lands.

        The Bush administration had lifted the ban on concealed weapons in its final months, after pressure from gun rights groups, including the National Rifle Association. But a federal judge blocked the move last year. The Obama administration declined to appeal the ruling, and Congress passed the law. President Obama signed the measure without comment as part of a credit card reform package.

        National parks hosted about 275 million visitors in 2008, the agency said. There were 3,760 reported major crimes, including five homicides and 37 rapes. The agency does not note which crimes involve firearms. Crime is down across the system’s parks, according to the statistics.

        • independent thinker

          Pretty much what I said except obama passively opposed the concept instead of actively opposing it.

            That is absolutely NOT what you said… you called in a “blatant lie”.
            Its the record… the only “blantant lie” has been the NRA and the gun lobby telling all the fools who will listen to their big money that Obama will come for your guns and that the UN arms treaty to stop illegal gun sales will mean UN control over US soverenty when it comes to internal arms even though in the treaty it says specifically that internal laws and customs will not be impacted.

    I’m sure you all have heard of the frog in water. The frog sat in water and the heat was turned up gradually until it hit the boilng point. One cooked and eaten frog. That’s us. The godless socialist represented by the Republicrats almost have us to the boiling point. The majority of us feel warm and comfy, to stupid to realize what’s happening. Everything we say and do MUST have the godless socialist hand of approval on it. When America was founded the only department we had was Post Office. What and how many do we have to answer now?. Law , to be law, MUST pass the Constitution muster or IT’S NOT LAW. The godless central planners have us in bondage. Freedom is defined as being politically correct, and we don’t even realize it. We not only elected Obama, we elected his political philosophy, godless socialism better known as communism. The only thing standing in the way of our feeling the complete impact is the 2ND AMENDMENT. You can’t be fool enough to think that he and his ilk are concerned about your safety and that’s why their pushing to get rid of it. They murder babies in the womb. They murder men, women and children in foreign lands. They’ve pushed a medical plan that has provisions to dispose of people that call liabilities, not contributing to their plans. They all prove that they’re liars as they’re sworn into office by saying they will uphold OUR, not their, constitution and then do as damn well please. The cancer of godless socialism is prevelant in America and it look like its terminal. Where’s the RAGE OVER THIS? Where’s the Patrick Henry’s, GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH, and signers of the Declaration of Independence? I can see the tears in Christ’s eyes as He leaves hoping that he’ll be called back. With Him goes the liberty and freedoms we say we cherish but do nothing to retain. Read and believe John 3:16

    Wow – Bob Livingston has outdone himself this time, as this article says it all.

  • Flashy

    “Any provisions inserted into the bill that would preclude registration
    or setting up a database of gun owners will be ignored. Proof of this is
    found in Missouri, where the State’s database of concealed weapons
    permits was twice given to Federal LEOs” <— Bob L.

    Law of Missouri showing the Drivers License is endorsed and thus easily found with a database search of driver licenses.. "Upon verification of the
    certificate of qualification and completion of a driver's license or
    nondriver's license application pursuant to chapter 302, the director of
    revenue shall issue a new driver's license or nondriver's license with an
    endorsement which identifies that the applicant has received a certificate of
    qualification to carry concealed weapons issued pursuant to sections 571.101
    to 571.121 "

    So mr. Livingston…since the information WAS ALREADY PUBLIC RECORD on the DLs … your usage of Missouri as "proof' is unfounded, and…not exactly substantiated. Quite the opposite.

    given that, it would be simple minded indeed to think the feds would restrict themselves … but overall it has no effect on the Right to bear Arms. The "right" (whatever it turns out to be) remains. There is no restriction for having any database on who has a CWP, who sold or purchased a gun, nothing.

    Mr livingston…answer this..a question which NO ONE of the gun freak side has been able to answer without support of crime
    and violence. What is the problem with being able to trace and
    discover those irresponsible and/or criminal elements who supply guns to
    bad guys? Why do you support the arms trade selling guns to criminal elements?

    Loved how you used an interview with Kissinger from the 1970's when he was attempting to joke 9note the parenthetical s [laughter], and loved how you took a Feinstein quote talking about a a ban manufacture or import of assault weapons and turned it into a complete gun ban. 40 years and 20 year quotes…and neither of which is purported to be what is written in your article.

    Mr. livingston…nice article over nothing. Quotes taken out of context, the public disclosure laws not known, asking why a nutcase is being held, and blaming the plummeting price of gold on a conspiracy.

      Dear Flashy,

      You write: “As for the economy…must be bad for the gold investment advisors that gold has plummeted the past two weeks.” Were this correction due to market conditions it might be. As this is a manipulated correction, it’s simply an opportunity. In reality, the wheels are coming off for the Fed. PCR explains it well: http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2013/04/13/assault-on-gold-update-paul-craig-roberts/

        Mr. Livingston. when an article relies upon erroneous statements such as erroneously representing public information as private, not clearly @tating the various and numerous other legal basis for holding someone without bail, and by relying upon quotes decades in age and clearly shown to be taken out of context, added to that is onesubjective and unsubstantiated report by a gold investment letter, I know of very few who would say a conclusion the article has little basis in reality and is riddled throughout with faulty analysis is a “logical fallacy”.

        Fact is, denying the inaccuracy of the article would be denying the reality. the author either hasn’t any facts to support the contentions/predictions therein, or is a shill for undisclosed special interests.

        Would you state any writing I post containing those errors/out of context aged quotes/and wild suppositions would garner your support ?

          I read about this a couple of weeks ago (amazing what the MSM chooses to ignore…uh….I mean… miss)…seems like they are trying to vilify home schooling…while trying to convince us that our children do not belong to us…they belong to the community… AKA the “Collective”.
          Teach your children well. Teach your children morals and values Do not allow others to raise your children for you, for if you do, your children will not be yours…. they will belong to the collective.
          Regardless of what they try to convince us, one size does not fit all. Every child is an individual that should be nurtured and encouraged to their fullest potential, morally, physically and intellectually. The future of our children relies on the family unit…not in the community unit…. educational reform starts at home.

    You can get arrested for expired tags on your car but not for being in the country illegally.

    You have to have your parents signature to go on a school field trip but not to get an abortion.

    An 80 year old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a Muslim woman in a burka is only subject to having her neck and head searched.

    Your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more of our money.

    A seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for calling his teacher “cute” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable.

    The Supreme Court of the United States can rule that lower courts cannot display the 10 Commandments in their courtroom, while sitting in front of a display of the 10 Commandments.

    You know you live in a Country run by idiots if…

    Children are forcibly removed from parents who appropriately discipline them while children of “underprivileged” drug addicts are left to rot in filth infested cesspools of a “home”.

    Hard work and success are rewarded with higher taxes and government intrusion, while some slothful, lazy behavior is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing, and free cell phones.

    The government’s plan for getting people back to work is to provide 99 weeks of unemployment checks (to not work).

    Being self-sufficient is considered a threat to the government.

    Politicians think that stripping away the amendments to the constitution is really protecting the rights of the people.

    The rights of the Government come before the rights of the individual.

    You pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV

    while your neighbor defaults on his mortgage (while buying iPhones, TV’s and new

    cars) and the government forgives his debt and reduces his mortgage (with your

    Being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you “safe”.

    Bit of advice, Mr. Livingston: in order to make your arguments have a SHRED of credibility, don’t use such subjective, blindly offensive terms to refer to your opponents.

    Mr. Livingston, I have no problem if your political views are different from mine, but if you want to sell your argument to Anyone, you HAVE to give SOME credit to the other side in your writing. Not enough to make readers side with them, of course, but enough to not make them think that you are a dogmatic, overly biased zealot whose debate tactics consist solely of bile-filled, unsubstantiated libel.

    I agree that our government is corrupt to the core, but it is not the sole work of one party; it is, in most cases, the result of hard-headed idiots from BOTH parties who are so blindly dogmatic about their party’s views that they REFUSE to compromise on ANYTHING. The least we can do is oust these imbeciles and replace them with more moderate, intelligent, and objectively-minded people who can actually AGREE on something.

      Dear SC,

      You write: “Bit of advice, Mr. Livingston: in order to make your arguments have a SHRED of credibility, don’t use such subjective, blindly offensive terms to refer to your opponents” Which “subjective, blindly offensive terms” do you object to, pray tell?

      You write: ” I have no problem if your political views are different from mine, but if you want to sell your argument to Anyone, you HAVE to give SOME credit to the other side in your writing.” Why?

      You write: ” but enough to not make them think that you are a dogmatic, overly biased zealot whose debate tactics consist solely of bile-filled, unsubstantiated libel.” Nice ad hominem, but it does not refute my points. Nor does any of your response, I note.

      You write: “I agree that our government is corrupt to the core, but it is not the sole work of one party;…” As I write on a daily basis.

      You write: “… it is, in most cases, the result of hard-headed idiots from BOTH parties who are so blindly dogmatic about their party’s views that they REFUSE to compromise on ANYTHING.” There is no compromising where liberty and the Constitution are concerned.

            Why would you ask such a foolish question? Who do you think was arguing for applying the Constitution all through the Civil Rights and other fights in the Courts in the mid-20th Century? All of those fights involved interpretation of the 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 14th Amendments. The liberals or leftists were arguing for greater freedom and you right wingers were on the other side every time. When can the police search your house? What do they need to get a warrant? When do they need a warrant? What can you say or print in a newspaper? What does right to counsel mean? Under what circumstances is the death penalty “cruel and unusual”? What do “equal protection” and “due process” in the 14th Amendment mean?

            The difference between those fights and your 2nd Amendment fetish is those cases were about balance – balancing the right of an accused against the right of society to be able to prosecute people. You guys treat the 2nd Amendment like it’s a magic incantation you can recite to make all reasonable discussion concerning guns go away. The 2nd Amendment confers whatever rights the Supreme Court says it does. Currently, it holds that you have a personal right to a gun, ignoring the “well regulated” language. But it hasn’t ruled on reasonable limitations on gun type, on magazine size, or even on the meaning of the word “arms.” Do you think “arms” includes machine guns? Tanks? Drones? Surface-to-air missiles? How about nukes?

      Adam Lanza didn’t possess those guns. He stole them from his mother. I believe he and the Aurora mass shootings had outside help as well. Some leftist liberal communist activist helped them. They were all to sick to act on their own. Fast & Furious scam failed to bring in gun control but have been linked to 50 thousand dead mexicans. Some leftwing loons had to get that gun control going again. Unfortunately along with Freedom comes responsiblity but Free speech & freedom to bear arms is extremely important. Yes.

        Whether he legally owned them or not, he certainly possessed them. And your position is he should be able to possess them because you’re against all reasonable restrictions on guns, and you’re against background checks to make it just a little harder for a nut to get a gun.

      • Jeff

        Well, there are 26 corpses who would say different – if they could say anything. Whether or not Adam Lanza legally possessed those guns, he certainly possessed them physically. And your argument is he SHOULD be able to possess such weapons because you’re against all restrictions on guns, including background checks. You can talk all you want about communists and Mexicans, but the fact is the more assault weapons with large-capacity clips that are in circulation, the more of them that will be in the hands of the next Adam Lanza or James Holmes.

        Let’s keep up the good fight for human life, not the ways of infanticide. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY! 하나님하고 나라를 위해서!
        You need both love of country and faith in God to be a patriot.

    George Orwell had just published Animal Farm [1] when he moved from London to the Scottish island of Jura to warn that a new tyrannical government was rising from the ashes of Hiroshima and would be visible to the public by Nineteen-Eighty-four (“1984”) [2]:

    An ignorant voting class begets the imperious ruling class.

    Obama is King ; democrats his minions. The opposition (republicans) ; non- entities. Both parties lead US down the path. Such has been “generational erosion” of Liberty especially since the 1960’s.

    This articles mentions 16 million people on food stamps. No! No! Try 50 million on food stamps and 90 million out of work. With 5 yrs. into a non economic recovery. WE ARE IN A DEPRESSION! As long as obama & his communist democrapes are in there will be no recovery. If we loose the House & Senate in 2014 THIS COUNTRY IS DONE.It will be communism full speed ahead.
    To those who think that’s good. Communism/socialism means TOTAL PROVERTY! Thousands will die because we will not give up God, our guns & our children. We will not want ti give up our bussinesses. Industry will be nationalized and anyone that disagrees will be murdered or just missing. Your neighbor will spy on you for.money and lie about you because they’re hungry. The government will take your homes for the party elites and the jewish will most likely be murdered or disappear
    That’s communism! They must control you or destroy you. Especially those that have always lived in freedom. They must be destroyed so they don’t tell stories of freedom.

      I sense a lot of desperation in your post and I believe you are truly onto something. Try watching Link TV or the RBN network to be guided to the root of our country’s problems. Communism is not where we are at yet but you could be close. The information would shock you and you would surely be in denial once you find who is really behind the demise of this country. The corporates and the oligarchy have been given a free pass and moved our prosperity clearly out of the country and much has happened over the last 3 decades. To find the truth, stay away from corporate owned media outlets. You will have to find alternative media to really know the truth. Even religious outlets like TBN is corrupted. Please find out for yourself or you will go stark raving mad. Once you find the truth, meet with like minded people and start your own movement. Regards, much luck.

    The Left-wing, also known as The Union, The Industrialized First World Civilization, or “You did go to Harvard/Cambridge, didn’t you?” is an independent nation that promotes and adheres to the following guidelines, also known as human rights:

    All beings have the right to freedom of thought, expression, and opinion, as long as that thought, expression, and opinion is left-wing.

    All beings have the right to practice their religion provided they either 1)Don’t believe in a God or 2)Don’t take it seriously.

    Women have the right to be liberated, express themselves, and have sex with anybody who wants them to.

    All sentient beings are obliged not to be a redneck, cousin-loving, obese, alcoholic, wife-beating, trailer-trash, gun-slinging, southern-drawl cowboy.

    All left wing writers have full permission to overuse adjectives(see previous entry)

    All paid up left wingers have the right to fight for the redistribution of wealth, so long as that wealth is not their own.

    The right to Baby Clubbin’.

    Left wingers reserve the right to never shut up.

    Left wingers reserve the right to believe that Canada is a paradise of Utopian health care and government-sponsored marijuana.

    left wingers reserve the right to support green initiatives such as wind farms that are not within a 20 mile radius of there own home.

    Left wingers reserve the right to kill off, oops, euthanize any unfit human who cannot protest otherwise while protecting animals that would sooner eat those bleeding-heart liberals alive than show some gratitude.

    They whine about the idea of sharing the wealth, world peace and racial harmony. But in reality, that won’t really happen.

    And finally, Left wingers like to raise your taxes, esp. if you’re wealthy (but not to them limousine liberal elitists they are).

    The natural habitat of the Left Winger is Southern California, Canada, parts of Manhattan, England (North London postcodes only), and much of Europe, except for Italy, Catholic Portugal and the South of France. The habitat extends southwards into Spain and parts of the Caribbean. The Left Winger is unknown in the central US, and China. Although slightly known in Australia, it is ridiculed and mocked to the point of hiding in small self contained communities. It is rarely observed, and when it is observed here, it is not remembered due to everyone except the reclusive left wingers being too drunk.

    The Left winger is often seen descending to coffee shops to drink espresso or machiato. They can be attracted to suburban gardens by supplies of vegetarian food. For best results, ensure you have plenty of large trees to hug.

    Some traits:

    A Left Winger thinks that he can change the world.

    A Left Winger thinks Cuba is a Paradise.

    A Left Winger hates your own mother.

    A Left Winger has a little bit of intelligence (above 25 IQ points).

    A left Winger sings “Imagine” by John Lennon every morning.

    A left Winger thinks that CNN (communist news network) is a capitalist channel.

    Totally awesomely evil behaviour of Left Wingers:

    Every single left wing person is unquestionably gay, as they do not feel it is necessary to kill everybody who is even vaguely different from them.

    As a political ideology, left-wing proponents believe that government is beneficial and needed to maintain social order, that taxation and an ever-growing list of laws are the price we pay for civilization and that facts should never get in the way of a good social program. Left-wingers have a strange idea that taxes should be taken so that the government can spend money on things like education and healthcare, mainly because they are all homosexual.

    Due to an obsessive belief in their own righteousness and civil behaviour, left-wingers like to pretend that they refrain from discussions and dirty tricks that cost them elections, though in reality they are as much a bunch of sick, twisted freaks as their counterparts (right-wing ). They admit that democracy is defective, but argue that all the problems could be solved by preventing the right-wing from voting, or preferably strangling them at birth.

    Left-wingers believe that right-wingers have an unhealthy obsession with politics, unlike Left Wingers who avoid the subject except on Air America, the Academy Awards, Michael Moore films, Noam Chomsky interviews, Al Gore speaking tours, Al Franken books, protests, Jane Fonda cannon sittings, Alec Baldwin / George Clooney / Sean Penn / Tim Robbins / Susan Sarandon / Ben Affleck / Harry Belafonte / Bruce Springsteen / Kanye West rants, PETA activities, the entire Guardian newspaper,the bits of the BBC that have long words in, Pravda… it’s pretty much their entire daily lives too.

    Oh by the way, Left-wingers believe that racism/sexism/age-ism/size-ism and all other ism’s are totally wrong, unless they are used against old fat white guys from red states. Those opponents deserve whatever they get!!

    Those who proclaim themselves left-wing tend not to support the state of Israel, a fact that helps explain the high number of Jews who consider themselves left-wing. -Uncyclopedia

    We need to vote all RINO’s out of office and IMPEACH Obama now.

    • Dave

      Yes! Lets vote out all all people that have an opinion different than the extremist right wing and install a president that is the figure head. We could call it Saudi Arabia… Oh wait, that name has been taken.

    Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 16, Tea Party Patriots is urging all who can to stand for the
    Constitution and protest the back-room deals that are voted on before
    anyone can read them.

    For the details go to

      The letters to your senator can be printed out for hand delivery to their local office while you can use the sample tweets and Facebook posts online.

      Here’s how it works. Visit THIS PAGE to see how your senator voted. They either “stayed strong,” became a “bad guy,” or are “squishy” on defending the Constitution. Each set of senators has a tailored letter you can deliver to their office, as well as a sample letter to the editor you can personalize for your local paper. Once you know how your Senator measures up, use the links below to assemble your toolkit for Tuesday, April 16, 2013

    Comfort food: Do not pray to God to stop this…it is His plan for this to happen. Paul clearly taught in 2Thessalonians that the mystery of inquity is at work until God’s plan is finished. The wicked must be revealed…2Thess 2:11: “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie, that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” Isaiah 5:20: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” Isaiah 5:23 (Woe unto them) which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!”
    As has been forever past, and will be forever future, God is in control. Our call is to endure to the end of this time, with all patience and faithfulness, never losing sight of reward that certainly appears to be rapidly approaching. Jesus promised for the sake of His elect, “these days would be shortened.” Our prayer should be for wisdom to minister to those He puts in our path who may yet be saved, and ultimately, as John said in Revelation 22:20, “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”

    Bob : Keep up the good work, from what is being siad by the usual people, you are hitting home. they are digging down to the bottom of the barrow, so to speak, to try to mislead the people with their disception, and twisting of the truth. Just like in the garden, as the devil twisted God`s word, the same tacktick is being used by the progressives/ communist. Stick to the facts, and the truth, the people will see the factes for what they are, not for what the progressives are trying to make them say. God is not in the heart of the progressives, therefor, to lie, and to decive by twisting the truth is complely accepable for them, in fact, the bigger the lie the better, hard to believe, but true, not because I say so, their fruit is in plain sight. As one of the other people siad, it`s not what the politican siad, it`s what they have done, the fruit of their adminestration, thats what we need to judge them by. And for the 13 Benedict Arnolds, I for one, hope they reap whate they have sowen. They have made themselfs traitors to the constitution which they took an oth too up hold. Johnny G.

    Has anyone notices that since Obamma got back into office we have had a lot more violence well, I believe that him and his people are behind all of these things that have been happening. Seems every week or so there is some new threat to America, we are being bombarded with crap and we all know who is behind it. let’s not let them do this and get the word out so that every American can at least know the truth.

    Can’t trust a politician. The skills needed to be a great used car salesman are the same as that for a politician. Don’t need to know jack, just how to sell yourself.
