Can state lawmakers legally fine federal officials, even toss them in jail should they attempt to impose Barack Obama’s agenda of gun bans and confiscation on the American people?
Many remember video of lawless New Orleans police as they travelled door to door in the aftermath of Katrina, throwing law abiding citizens to the ground, confiscating their firearms and rendering individuals defenseless at a time when self-defense was all that would separate honest citizens from roving bands of thugs and looters. Such was the outrage of the American public that one year later, the State of Louisiana joined federal lawmakers in banning the confiscation of firearms during declared “emergencies.” (1)
Today, more than a dozen states have “…proposed legislation to either jail federal officials who violate the second amendment or to nullify federal laws to control guns within state borders.” The list of states joining these efforts continues to grow. … Continue Reading:Utah steps up to prevent federal encroachment on 2nd Amendment rights…sort of

A nationwide flu outbreak could be a sufficient excuse to call up the National Guard Rapid Response Parallel support module to take control of a “national emergency” with possible declaration of martial law protocols. According to a North Carolina police lieutenant, in some three to six months declarations of martial law could be made throughout the nation. In a two part radio broadcast aired by a Virginia pastor, Lieutenant McCoy has attracted the attention of more than 20,000 listeners. “We’re in huge trouble,” he says as he calls up memories of white, granite gravestones all over Europe; gravestones marking the final resting place of veterans who died “for us” during World War II. (1)
Tragically, many of our veterans are now referred to as potential “domestic terrorists” by President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security. Men who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan have been declared “risks” should they choose to purchase a firearm for private … Continue Reading:FEMA and the National Guard–working for or against the American public?

Taking a break from the campaign and posing for photo-ops with FEMA and other non-players in the recovery effort in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, while insisting that because of his leadership the entire country is behind the recovery efforts.(1) He wanted to show the country that he was taking charge and told the reporters on hand “There is nothing more important than us getting this right” Doing nothing is not getting it right and that is what this administration is doing while claiming success.
One reporter in a moment of clarity asked Mr. Obama about the fear, suffering, and frustrations of New Yorkers, especially Staten Island. He said nothing and left to resume campaigning in Ohio.
In lessons learned from Katrina FEMA adopted a policy of advanced staging for emergency distribution (6) and all of the martini sipping teacher’s lounge bureaucrats developed a plan. This plan was better … Continue Reading:Campaign first, everything else can wait

My law professor friend is an ardent leftist and Obama supporter. We have exchanged ideas and barbs for over two years. His latest post www.mealsfromthemarketplace.com included in part:
“… the Occupy Wall Street movement might save America from the march toward plutocracy that it has been on for the last thirty years. Properly understood, the Occupy movement is aimed at reining in the excesses of rampant greed in a corporate-dominated capitalist system that has lost its bearings.”
He liked my comments about capitalism but thought I was obsessing too much on the lack of propriety of the OWS crowd vs. TEA Party gatherings… that we must concentrate on substance. It’s just hard to do when one side is screaming epithets and throwing dung.
Cleanliness does make profound impressions. I have several profound memories that give credence to my view (as I sit among piles of paper around my … Continue Reading:OWS and TEA Party seeing two ends of an Elephant.
