End of the week – several more nails in the coffin of the old Republic and our last, residual freedoms and liberty.
Congress in action – Self-defense rights dead
Senate Filibuster Dead; Gun Law Debates to Begin
(CNN) Because of the bipartisan [Manchin-Toomey] deal, Senate Democrats backing the legislation received support from enough Republicans to approve the cloture motion, 68-31, setting up debate on the proposals and amendments expected to last for two weeks. …A new national survey showed that 86% of Americans support some expansion of background checks. At the same time, the CNN/ORC International poll released Wednesday also showed a majority of respondents fear that increased background checks would lead to a federal registry of gun owners that could allow the government to take away legally owned weapons.
Nathan: Here are the 16 Republicans that voted to bring yet another unconstitutional gun control bill to the senate floor for a vote without even reading what was in it:
- Lindsey Graham (SC) (202) 224-5972 – BIG surprise here (sarcasm)
- Lamar Alexander (TN) (202) 224-4944
- Kelly Ayotte (NH) (202) 224-3324
- Richard Burr (NC) (202) 224-3154
- Saxby Chambliss (GA) (202) 224-3521
- John McCain (AZ) (202) 224-2235 – BIG surprise here (sarcasm)
- Tom Coburn (OK) (202) 224-5754 – Truly big surprise here
- Susan Collins (ME) (202) 224-2523 – Absolutely no surprise
- Bob Corker (TN) (202) 224-3344
- Jeff Flake (AZ) (202) 224-4521 – Somewhat of a surprise
- John Hoeven (ND) (202) 224-2551 – Somewhat of a surprise
- Johnny Isakson (GA) (202) 224-3643
- Dean Heller (NV) (202) 224-6244
- Mark Kirk (IL) (202) 224-2854
- Pat Toomey (PA) (202) 224-4254 – The conspirator-in-chief
- Roger Wicker (MS) (202) 224-6253
I’m sure they’d also love to hear from you. (sarcasm)
These sixteen people have once again betrayed not only their supposed “principles” and the supposed principles of their party, but have betrayed their oaths to the Constitution and betrayed their states to even more federal tyranny than we have had to this point. With people like these, the Democrats do not need to have a majority or super-majority in the Senate: these people are all “honorary” liberals and transnational progressives no matter how they proclaim their “conservatism” or how much they claim to defend freedom.
While theoretically, it is impossible to recall any of these “Conscript Fathers” and “Conscript Mothers,” symbolic efforts to do so would perhaps publicize their betrayal and their hatred of liberty and fear of ordinary Americans. Nor, of course, are they subject to anything so crass and mundane as impeachment and trial. And with the tremendous advantage of incumbency and the ability to raise millions and millions of dollars to buy votes, they are virtually invulnerable to anything except death, or some sort of hideous revelation of personal wrongdoing that would boggle the mind. (And even then, considering John McCain’s personal history, you wonder.)
PS: CNN – that paragon of objective and truthful reporting – has reportedly stated that they will conduct a campaign for several days next week to support the Congressional passage of these criminal “laws.” I can hardly wait.
The “messiah” – Islamic wars: Arab street revolt
Sean Smith’s Mom: Obama Didn’t Follow-Up on Personal Promise; Asks Congress: ‘Please, Please Help Me Find Out Who is Responsible’
Nathan: This woman needs to understand who she is dealing with: a “world leader” whose death count, while not at the rarified (or sewer) levels of a Stalin or Hitler or Mao, is certainly counted in the hundreds of thousands – directly. What is one more, or four more, Americans’ blood on his hands? And of course, this “personal promise” comes from a man who seems to be vying with Satan to become “Prince of Lies.” A lawyer, a politician, a “community organizer,” a Tranzi (socialist/communist), and a man who is a co-conspirator of the likes of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Raum Emmanuel, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and Bill Clinton. Ma’am, deep in your heart, you KNOW who is responsible: you were TALKING to him.
East Asian front
North Korea states ‘nuclear war is unavoidable’ as it declares first target will be Japan
(Freedom’s Phoenix) In a commentary carried by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), the communist country lashed out at Tokyo’s standing orders to destroy any missile heading toward Japan, threatening such actions will result in a nuclear attack against the island.
Nathan: Of course, people like Lendman will accuse Japan as taunting North Korea and trying to provoke them into an attack. The truth is, this is the childish behavior of a nation of immature leaders and followers who are constantly bought off by the West, and who are treated seriously instead of as a toddler (as the next story helps explain).
East Asian front – Stupid US government
U.S. Intelligence Sends Mixed Messages on North Korea’s Nuclear, Missile Capabilities
Nathan: Normal SOP for our intelligence agencies, of course. But I’d rather that they send mixed messages than all of them agree that North Korea poses no danger to anyone with their nukes and their missiles. A child having a temper tantrum cannot be left alone, even if ignored: they are too likely to grab or do something that is really stupid and might kill themselves or harm others as well.
Abominable Act (ObummerCare) – Mainstream Media
Bozell: ABC, CBS, NBC ‘Deliberately Censoring’ Bad News on Obamacare
Nathan: No, really? I cannot imagine WHY – after all, don’t all news and television folks and their retirees have health care anyway?
Stupid government tricks – Attack on the family
Obama’s Budget Orders States to Promote Parental Engagement in Children’s Lives
Nathan: Well, parental engagement is important, and good (to a point: helicopter parenting is as bad as the real thing was in Vietnam). But it is NOT something (a) that is the fedgov’s business, (b) that the fedgov can order states to promote, or (c) that we could trust government to do, anyway. For this administration, I am sure it is another wedge to promote so-called “homosexual marriage.”
Mama’s Note: And, actually, that’s quite a switch – if he really meant what the words say, of course. Government policy and government “schools” have been working diligently for nearly 100 years to destroy the family and, therefore, any real involvement by parents in the lives and upbringing of their children.
This is just further meddling in the lives of broken families, creating more false “rights” without doing anything to promote individual responsibility or parental authority to care for their children as they thing best (or actually damaging it more). More and more government control over every aspect of people’s lives.
