Obama turned his most dangerous enemies into heroes

By Doug Book,  editor

There is no more important item on the Obama Regime to-do list than to convince Americans that Islamic terrorists are not the nation’s most dangerous and implacable foes. “We must concern ourselves with a different type of threat,” said A.G. Eric Holder as he announced the return of the Clinton era Domestic Terror Executive Committee. And that threat will not come from Muslim jihadists. Rather, Holder warned that Americans must be prepared for “…the continued danger we face from individuals within our own borders.”

The Committee to be reconstituted by the Obama Regime was put in business by the Clinton Department of Justice in 1995, shortly after the Oklahoma City bombing. Its stated purpose was investigation and interdiction of the nefarious activities of right wing radicals. The committee would decide how best to protect the American public from non-conforming, potential domestic terrorists like those gunned down by the ATF at Ruby Ridge or immolated by the FBI in Waco.

But neither the Clinton nor the Obama Administration was interested in looking after the American people. And both failed miserably in their attempts to demonize the nation’s “radical right.” In fact, the public considered Clinton’s ATF and FBI the real domestic terrorists, especially after the wantonly violent carnage caused by Bureau minions at Waco.

Enter Barack Obama who has plotted against gun owners—in the president’s mind, the most dangerous and determined of right wing extremists—for the past 5 years. Hundreds died as a result of his Fast and Furious scheme to toughen gun control legislation.

And in the end, not only did the 2 administrations fail to demonstrate the dangers posed by the “far right,” they created even greater mistrust of a government which was supposed to save the day by disarming those dedicated, homegrown terrorists.

Add the fact of these well-publicized, strong-arm disasters to the unequaled corruption and arrogance of Barack Obama and it is not difficult to understand the American people taking up arms against the federal government’s BLM mercenaries at the Bundy ranch. Incredibly, Barack Obama actually succeeded in turning his most dreaded enemies into national heroes.

And more importantly, Obama wound up being humiliated by a disorganized bunch of cowboys wearing six-guns. The weakness of this American president, already so well understood by foreign leaders, was placed on full display before the American public.  

Presidents who own the media can overcome a great many things. But humiliation, especially at the hands of American patriots who Barack Obama has spent most of his years working to destroy, may not be one of them.

FIREARM STORIES WHICH WILL NEVER MAKE THE NEWS

by Doug Book,  editor

1.) On May 12th, a motorist told Minneapolis police that the driver of another vehicle had “brandished” a gun at him on I-694. Police closed two lanes of Interstate traffic during the morning rush hour, identified the gunman’s vehicle and took him into custody.

It turns out the man who caused the police emergency and traffic nightmare is an ATF agent. However, the agent’s name “…was not released per Minnesota Statute 13.82, which allows the identity of an undercover law enforcement officer to be kept private.”

An undercover law enforcement officer? How many undercover officers–you know, individuals who would prefer to remain anonymous–wave a gun at a fellow driver at 6:30 in the morning? 

Of course the story was not reported by the mainstream media and no questions were asked even after the agent was released without being charged.

After all, the perp wasn’t a civilian. And the big boy media is interested only in pistol-wielding civilians because they are the people who “…can’t be trusted with guns.” They just “…don’t have the training or capacity to handle the responsibility.”

Isn’t it lucky the guy playing in traffic with his Glock was an ATF agent? A bricklayer might have done something really dangerous, stupid or irresponsible.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the incident is “under investigation.” An ATF representative said it was “under review.” 

2.) Dr. Vivek Murthy, Barack Obama’s “on hold” Surgeon General nominee, “…has expressed a desire to see more restrictions on how guns can be purchased and who can own them.” According to the New York Yimes, “…his views are in step with where many Americans stand on gun control…”

Yet for some reason, the “in-step” Dr. Murthy has 10 Senate Democrats who can’t wait to vote against his confirmation. Maybe that’s because the doctor “…believes gun ownership is a public health issue, not a right protected under the 2nd Amendment.” A vote to confirm this guy would be more dangerous on election day than cyanide.

Not reported by the Times or any other member of the MSM, Murthy believes doctors should document anyone who has a gun in their home. Gun owners should also be licensed and the purchase of ammunition restricted.

Even more scary is the fact that just as physicians may certify those who should no longer drive as they might pose “…a grave danger to themselves and others,” Dr. Murthy believes government “…should approach the purchase, transfer and operation of guns with the same vigor.”

Translation: your doctor will have the authority to make you an ex-gun owner!

Former Surgeon General Dr. Richard Carmona wrote to Barack Obama in December of last year, telling the president that Vivek Murthy is not qualified; that he has “no leadership experience” and no “public health training or experience.” That would mean that Dr. Murthy could be a purely political appointee, selected only because he is a believer in the Obama approved, “common sense” gun control agenda.

Waco a stark reminder of the murderous intent of dictatorial administrations

 

by Suzanne Eovaldi

Twenty years ago at this time we were in the midst of the federal government’s 51 day siege on a compound of Bible worshippers who with their 12 children were all snuffed out in a raid. “That’s torturing babies,” a U.S. Representative bemoaned at the Congressional hearings investigating the Waco siege during which CS gas vapor was spewed down a long arm of an armored tank onto the roof, into the rooms, and ultimately wafted down into the windowless tower where some of the women and their children were hiding in the Mount Carmel Church compound of the David Karesh (Vernon Howell) followers!  “Gas masks don’t fit on babies,” one investigator in Washington, D.C. observed.  So as former Attorney General Janet Reno suffers from Parkinson’s Disease in Stuart, FL, a lengthy, outstanding online video entitled “Waco-The Rules of Engagement (William Gazecki)” (1) reminds us just what can happen when a federal government-gone-wild destroys citizens.  Footage of Reno leaving to attend a speech while the Waco outrage was going on is a poignant reminder of the Democrat Presidency of William Jefferson Clinton.

The federal government’s siege on Waco began on February 28, 1993, and ended 51 days later during the orgy of gassing children, women, the elderly, and most of their congregation.  “We put massive gas in there,” you can hear one agent acclaiming!   “My skin was melting. . . (in) the mass of flames. . .horrible way to die,” says a crying man who lived only by diving at a hole in the otherwise  pitch darkness of screaming voices.”  Hard to watch toward the end of the long ordeal is the photo of the crisp charred body of a little 12 year old girl who died when the effects of the deadly gas back bowed her muscles and collapsed her entire frame.  During negotiations with FBI agents, who got the handoff of the mission from the BATF, David Karesh is heard saying, “only one fire extinguisher in the building.”  Former FBI forensic photographer Farris Rookstool calls the attempt to brand the Karesh followers victims of mass suicide “most irresponsible.”  “Many of the residents were HOMICIDE victims,” he says. ( at 2:07:56 video time line)

Rookstool’s viewpoint is in stark contrast to that of now Vice President Joe Biden who declared, “There was no improper motive or intent… the Karesh followers set fire to themselves. . .the Government did not do that.”  Senator Orin Hatch backed up Biden, saying, “No conspiracy to kill Branch Davidians.”  Reno says the information given her was that the fire was set inside the building. 

Today, the compound is leveled, the tapes and photos of local and state forensic investigators are missing, and the metal door with bullet holes bending inward from incoming fire is nowhere to be found. The disturbing FLEAR analysis of shots fired from the ramming tank are quite indisputable even to someone not familiar with infra red evidence.  The fireball and flash fire from the fresh CS injected as shown by FLEAR remind all Americans of what did happen on April 19, 1993, and what could happen in this country again!

Firearm dealers told to ignore federal law, begin de facto registration of gun owners

by Doug Book,  staff writer

Barack Obama’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) has sent an open letter to all Federal Firearms License (FFL) holders/licensed gun dealers in the United States, recommending they “…enhance public safety and assist law enforcement by encouraging and facilitating transfers of firearms between private individuals through their business.” In short, FFL holders are being told to perform background checks and keep records of private gun sales between American citizens, EVEN THOUGH federal law may NOT require that they do so! (1)

According to current federal law, gun sales between private individuals must be handled by FFL holders ONLY if the private parties are residents of different states. Residents of the same state may conclude the sale of a firearm without submitting to a background check, having the sale recorded or paying a fee to a FFL holder/licensed gun store. Yet in the ATF’s January 16th letter to gun dealers, this vitally important distinction in federal law is ignored.

Why would the ATF suddenly “suggest” to gun dealers that they unnecessarily intrude themselves into private sales not currently controlled by federal law?

Six of the 23 executive actions recommended by Obama to curb gun violence involve the “sharing” of background check information throughout the executive branch bureaucracy. If gun dealers in the 50 states begin making it known to customers now that private sales must be handled through their stores—regardless of the true language of the law—it is hoped by gun grabbers that when the law really DOES change and Americans lose the right of private sales, no one will notice and no one will complain! The American public will be used to having their transactions recorded by the federal government! (2)

It is an underhanded tactic which FFL holders will be FORCED to impose upon the American people. After all, gun store owners depend for their very existence upon the good will of the ATF–the government organization which can revoke the gun dealer’s Federal Firearms License, effectively putting him out of business should he not toe the ATF line. So when the ATF “recommends” a FFL holder misrepresent federal law to a would-be private seller, he will do so or risk losing his investment and his livelihood.  

How great a danger to the 2nd Amendment rights of the American people does this contempt for existing federal law represent? Gun Owners of America has sent an alert to its members, warning that “increasingly ATF is going into gun dealers and Xeroxing all of the 4473’s…” Each of these forms represents a gun sale. It is ILLEGAL for the ATF to copy them or make records of them except in a criminal investigation. For making a record of these forms is the equivalent of beginning a planned, federal registration of gun owners!

Clearly the government intends to record every gun sale it possibly can, regardless of the law. For recorded sales mean information as to who owns a weapon and where it can be confiscated when the time comes!

Make no mistake: Barack Obama is coming after the guns of the American people. We will stop him by any means necessary.

Americans may soon be permitted to RENT guns but not own them

by Doug Book,  staff writer

The widely anticipated senate bill soon to be introduced by gun-banner extraordinaire Diane Feinstein will do far more than eliminate “assault weapons” (AW’s) and “high capacity” magazines.

According to a summary on the senator’s website, concealed carry license holder Feinstein–who proposed an outright ban on all handguns while packing her own for self-defense—will demand that owners of guns affected by her legislation: pay a $200 fee for EACH banned weapon owned; submit pictures, fingerprints and register AW’s with the ATF; have local law enforcement attest to the owner’s identity and specify the address at which each weapon will be kept.

But the NRA reports that the senator intends to go much further than bans or registration. For assessment of an acquired draft of Feinstein’s bill reveals a provision demanding that guns defined as assault weapons be immediately turned over to the federal government upon the current owner’s death.   

Under existing Federal Firearm Legislation, owners of AW’s are permitted to sell their weapons outright, modify them or pass them along to heirs. But not anymore. For should Feinstein’s bill become law, AW’s will be grandfathered into the possession of their current owners and “…[will] remain with [that] …owner until [his] death, at which point they [will] be forfeited to the government.” (1)

In short, our political ruling class would literally appropriate millions of “assault weapons,” rent the freshly acquired firearms back to their original owners and then seize them after those flagrantly cheated individuals have died. 

It is a very clever scheme of mortality-based confiscation!

Registration of the appropriated weapons will be conducted according to the National Firearms Act of 1934, the law which among other things, regulates ownership of machine guns and silencers. Fortunately the $200 per weapon fee has historically been charged only on the transfer of a weapon rather than on a yearly basis. But of course those banned, “high capacity” magazines must also be taken into account—and taxed.

Feinstein’s bill has yet to be completed, though she has vowed to read it on the Senate floor by January 3rd. Given the massive, nationwide dissent and bitter animosity which would surely result should the contents of the bill be published in an open and honest form, it’s possible that, like ObamaCare, congress will have to pass the legislation before the American public finds out what’s in it.

One thing is certain–gun owners will acquire many new responsibilities while preserving very few rights.

For example, Feinstein and Co. might demand holders of “assault weapons” purchase some form of renter’s insurance in order to protect themselves from legal responsibility should a gun be stolen and used in a crime. Naturally, the legal responsibility would be levied either by Congress itself or one of its partners in crime—the ATF comes to mind. After all, it would be a swell way to pick up a few bucks while encouraging a “pre-demise” weapon turn-in by owners who wish to avoid legal exposure or the expense of congressionally mandated insurance coverage.  Imagine the required purchase of an “ATF-approved” policy at $500 per year per weapon. A protection racket to make even Capone blush!

Will the Feinstein bill succeed? Almost certainly not. But consider how much closer it will likely come to passage now than a year ago. And what will happen after the next brutal murder spree deliberately facilitated by the left and its “gun-free zone” legislation?  And the next and the next?

Feinstein’s legislation reveals what the left is determined to achieve, sooner or later and by any means necessary. Those who wish to remain free must be prepared to do anything necessary to defeat them.
