If Gun Manufacturers Are Responsible for Gun Murders, What Next?

The U.S. Supreme Court has sent a ruling back to the Connecticut Supreme Court saying that families of the victims in the Sandy Hook shootings can attempt to sue the makers of the Remington Bushmaster gun, purportedly used by the supposed perpetrator in the killing of students. If such lawsuits are successful, what precedence will be set that will allow any kind of death to be linked to any and all manufacturers and/or service oriented businesses?

If it is fact that Remington violated the the state’s Unfair Trade Practices Act by marketing the gun as a weapon designed for killing people, then certainly there is much consideration to be made from other products and services that are designed for killing people. Consider all the violent video games that teach people, like mass murderers, how much fun it is to systematically go about slaughtering people. But we don’t travel that route do we?

Consider music filled with violent lyrics sure to influence even the meek of this society, if only in a subversive but deliberate way.

Consider fast automobiles, marketed as high performance, capable of attaining illegal speeds in record short amount of time. All states and the Federal Government advertise that “speed kills” and yet what purpose does manufacturing a car engine that tops 200 mph have but to kill?

Do you want to discuss the role of the Pentagon???? I didn’t think so.

This is all insanity. I have been saying for some time that this society and the entire world is completely insane, and such idiotic, preposterous, and irrational acts are proof of my assertion.

CRACKERS!!!!

Maybe the medical/psychology world is responsible just as much as anyone or anything.

The Last Remaining? Or the Beginning of the End?

If, as I have said for many years, the last remaining stronghold (?) against complete tyrannical rule, or perhaps better described as a total breakdown of any sense of law and order, is the Second Amendment and the right privilege to keep and bear arms, what happens when that is gone?

Of course nobody knows but we can speculate…it is coming.

So the National Rifle Association (NRA) remains mired in a mess of legal wrangling with their former partners Ackerman McQueen over “he said, she said” childish, selfish, power hungry, Second Grade hissy-fitting. Because all things in Washington and all associated fake non-governmental organizations act and react as is told them through the “bigger plan,” is all this legal mumbo-jumbo just part of bringing down the NRA, whether unbeknownst by useful idiots or purposely orchestrated, what next?

Let’s say for instance the totalitarian whiners and diaper-clad, braindead, boogymen who think guns kill people, get their way, whether immediately or in the near future, to ban the ownership of guns, what will happen?

About all I can say for certain is that there will be millions of Americans who will be very, very angry. They will become instant criminals. How angry? Angry enough to bear arms? But how can they bear arms if they are banned? Do you really think for a minute if guns were banned in the U.S. the people would willingly turn their guns over to the government, or some other NGO without a fight? Who’s going to go get them?

America sits on the verge of total chaos, a situation in which with each passing hour total out of control anger and violence sits on the edge of the fence and looking for a place to break out. It’s coming. It’s not if but when. How soon? How bad will it be?

As it becomes more clear – to those who can see – that the CONstitution was not intended for you and I but for the “posterity,” i.e. the criminal thugs in Washington, the hand-selected goons whose last idea of consideration is for you and I, law and order and any semblance of peace and normalcy fades into the dust replaced by anger and hatred, a determination to bang heads in protest on the floor demanding all things programmed to demand, at any cost.

The fake Democrat Party will not be content until Donald Trump is brought before a virtual firing squad and executed. Mind control and manipulation has convinced those on the Left that Trump is a supporter of the Second Amendment (no, he understands all the votes he can get by pretending) and Trump supporters still think he’s in their corner when it comes to gun ownership. This is just one aspect of a very large con job and we are all victims…by choice.

Is everything behind these actions to push the U.S. into civil strife, disobedience, chaos, and war? One ought to wonder. Is the intent really to bring down the NRA or to use it as just one more means of creating anger and hatred in a deeply divided country? And, for what purpose?

I don’t really think the people of this country have a clue as to why most everyone is suffering from “Strong Delusion” and why they cannot help but be pissed off over anything they have been told to be pissed off about. Let’s face it, the world is pissed off and they really don’t know why.

It might make for interesting conversation (that is if you could find someone capable of conversing that could get beyond Right and Left) to talk about who and what is behind all of this chaotic nonsense but I think the bottom line is that ALL the people know not what they are doing.

I know there are global organizations (Global Power Structure) that are in control of most things across this world of Satanic rule, but even they are out of control and don’t understand that the Great Hater himself controls them and all that they do, which, in turn, controls all that we say and do.

The world is insane and appears insane to those who are guided by the Truth of God’s words. Without this, people are left only with denial and an uncontrollable urge to be angry and hate people and everything the other person thinks he or she believes in.

These are the Days of Noah. We are living as people lived before the Great Flood. And just like in the Days of Noah, those living the “gOOD lIFE” deny that anything is not normal. To them, Noah was the one who was crazy.

The NRA and all its problems are but another symptom of the results of winged scorpions wreaking havoc in their shortened time.

And, according to the Scriptures, it will get worse before it all comes to a screeching halt.

What are you going to do?

Where Image Counts, The NRA Has Become a Serious Pimple on a Boar’s Behind

Jim Shepherd, published on the Outdoor Wire, tells of more troubles ongoing with the National Rifle Association (NRA). Board members are vacating the false Second Amendment supporting NRA because the reality is that those whose businesses rely on image, image, image, and where image is everything, all the negative press and scandals made known to the public concerning the NRA is casting bad light onto business folks associated with the NRA.

When pimples and boils fester on a dirty behind, before the pimple can be popped or the boil lanced and drained, the behind needs to be washed – cleansed and disinfected.

This has not taken place and the dirty ass if infecting the boil more than is necessary. Until the proper procedures are followed, the best thing most high profile people associated with the NRA can do is run and hide and at the same time nicely try to cover their tracks…as is revealed in Shepherd’s piece.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.

Consider the Dangers of “Red Flag” Laws

The hot topic these days, prompted by repeated staged gun shooting events, is what is called “Red Flag” laws. Red flag laws are essentially laws enacted that gives power to some named authorities to attempt to predict what they think a person MIGHT do that would become a danger to society or the person in question. In the case of red flag gun laws, the issue is whether or not a person is mentally ill and might pose a threat to themselves or others.

Consider the dangers.

First, such red flag laws, bastardize due process of law as well as removes the long held principle that a person is presumed innocent until a bonafide court of law determines guilt. American society today, bolstered by fascists and promoted by ignorant totalitarians have lost all sensibility when it comes to the protection of their presumed rights and government allotted freedoms. This action contributes to their own insanity and thus we are left with a bunch of people, most of whom are mentally challenged themselves, calling out for insanity in another person who chooses not to live the mainstream lifestyle of insanity, instead selecting their own methods of insane existence. So, who is right? The one with the power right?

As was pointed out yesterday by a reader of this website, we now have entered the extremely dangerous ground of enacting laws based upon what we think a person might do based on their state of mind. If a person is, in fact insane (which aren’t we all by someone’s standards?) is that person capable of recognizing mental incapabilities in other people? Because a person doesn’t live as I, does that make them insane? In this insane world it certainly does.

I don’t consider myself insane, but I know for a fact there are some (perhaps a lot) who think I have some serious mental deficiencies if not just unusual ways of looking at things, mostly because of my spiritual beliefs.

I was watching a movie the other night trying to relax after a physically demanding day, in which one of the actors in the movie stated that ANYONE who believed in God suffered from a mental disorder.

If a law enforcement person (and need I have to remind readers that not all law enforcement personnel are capable of putting behind them their personal perspectives on such things as religion, politics, etc. in their decision making processes?) chooses to think me mentally ill because of the hours I spend each day studying the Scriptures to show myself approved unto my CREATOR, can that law officer then bring me before a “medical professional” of his/her choice with like perspectives, rendering me doomed to the fascist, rigged system?

Because anger and hatred have been purposefully bred into our society, is there really any comfort to be had that none of this anger and hatred (insanity) is being injected into the rigged system of granted power to incarcerate a person and take their property from them simply because they think differently or because they are a republican and not a democrat?

When an honest assessment of life in these United States shows us the repeated death threats and threats of bodily harm and other assorted insane and perverse things, because these events are becoming more and more of routine acceptance as part of a dysfunctional society, from what basis are we beginning our assessment in attempting to determine the mental capacity of any individual who happens to possess “dangerous weapons?”

Throughout history we have read and sometimes witnessed attempts by powerful organizations to somehow control a person’s right of thought. How does anyone control another persons thoughts? Short of a “Clockwork Orange” concept, perhaps technology is not that far away from accomplishing that task but in the meantime, perhaps the best way to tread into the pits of hell is to enact laws that give somebody power to guess what another person might do based on their character, political association, sexual orientation, education, or lack thereof, color of skin, outward appearance, religious background or affiliation…there is no end. Is this what we want?

It is a terrible thing when anyone, for any reason, chooses to kill other people. If, as has been pointed out by some in the media, the acts of violence in our society are increasing, then perhaps it is more a reflection of a society with a rapidly shrinking moral base, a Godless society absent any knowledge of what is decent and not, rather than one in need of laws that attempt to determine a person’s thoughts or the possibilities of what they might do based solely on the perspectives of brainwashed authorities.

If we dare allow ourselves to let our minds run a bit wild, consider some of the possibilities an accepted “red flag” existence might render. With fully enacted and accepted “red flag” laws a normal part of society, then it would only make sense that such actions become the defense in a court of law for a legitimate reason one person killed another person – yes, your honor, I shot and killed that person because I believed, because I knew they were a mental patient and an active republican, they were going to kill me if I didn’t kill them. (I learned this on Facebook)

Of course nobody wants to even consider these possibilities but they are very real. That’s how progressivism works. With such perverted insanity becoming the “normal” in a forward moving society, sanity would tell us that by enacting “red flag” laws we are making things even worse and crafting a societal stage of reckless permissiveness based on nothing but fear, anger, and hatred.

Where will this insanity end? This is the epitome of the fox tending the chicken coup – the insane determining insanity.

Forgive them Father. They know not what they do.

SAM Director Needs “Blue Papering”

The executive director of the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine needs to have the new law he created, fostered, and now fully supports (LD 1811) put into action against him. He is mentally suspect and is a threat to tens of thousands of Maine residents who, because oh his new law, can quickly have their rights dashed from their hands, leaving many and their families unprotected from real criminals, all in the name of guessing that somebody might do something wrong based upon the biased, and often unprofessional perspectives of cops and quasi medical people. From my perspective, the director should have all his “weapons” temporarily confiscated until such time as a court can rush to judgement over what to do with him and his guns.

Part of the mental disorder afflicting the director is that he believes that “justice” can be served when someone decides another person MIGHT do something wrong based on a person’s perspective of whether or not another person matches their idealistic, “normal” behavior pattern and has the targeted individual put into “protective custody,” weapons confiscated, and put on ice for 14 days waiting for a judge to decide what to do. Think about how things are in this fascist/totalitarian insane asylum called the United States of America. What judge in his right mind (if there are any) is going to release any accused mental patient and restore him/her their “weapons?”

Director Trahan can paint as rosy a picture as he would like but it doesn’t remove the stark reality that his law, while I want to say is “unconstitutional,” blatantly goes against what has been practiced for many years in this country where a person is allowed presumption of innocence and is not taken into custody AND had their personal property confiscated because somebody has power to attempt to predict what a person might or might not do.

I’m going to go out on a small limb here and guess that at some point in David Trahan’s political past and as the current E.D. of SAM, has at one time or other stated that gun control laws only effect innocent, law-abiding citizens – that criminals will get guns no matter whether they are banned or not…etc. And yet, here he is creating and promoting laws designed to forecast a person’s actions, a clear violation of an infringement upon a lawful citizen.

It has been historically stated that as long as any government, and/or those who participate in government, can keep the masses living in fear, they can control them with any laws designed to strip them of any granted or presumed rights of freedom.

It was Thomas Jefferson who said, “When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”

What is most tragic is when, due to ignorance and fear of reprisals, heads of sportsmen groups abandon their own rights for a bit of trumped up false security. Governments by themselves can create enough destruction of a person’s rights, we certainly should not have people like David Trahan gunning for (Excuse the expression. You might find it offensive.) laws that not only destroys our Second Amendment freedoms to keep and bear arms but also places in the hands of fascists and totalitarians the power to decide what another law-abiding American might or might not do because they might not fit the mold of what is perceived as sanity in a world gone insane.

Now that’s insanity.

I’ve said it before and I’ll repeat it here – Trahan should step down as his interests are not in line with Maine’s outdoor sportsmen. He has become a serious liability to all gun owners across America and those who believe in the unquestioned right to keep and bear arms.

NRA, Immigration, and Political Campaigns

It was actually Winston Churchill who first said, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” History proves the man took advantage of every crisis and/or took part in the creation of such crises. It was later, during the Obama Administration, that President Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emmanuel, unoriginally stated, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that [is] it’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not before.”

Hegel’s Dialectics is a method of controlling and manipulating the masses by essentially fabricating a “crisis” in order that it can be taken advantage of, i.e “to do things that you think you could not before.” The Dialectic is in three parts – fabricate a crisis, embellish that crisis, offer a solution to the crisis, i.e. “never let a good crisis go to waste.” The solution is what was desired in the first place.

What most people are in denial about is that the U.S. Government, a most corrupt corporate organization, MUST control all aspects of our lives in order that it can exist. Along with all aspects of our lives, government wants to disarm the citizenry. Presidents come and presidents go and with them live and die their lies and false promises. Trump is an example of the typical lying, cheating, stealing politician, while at the same time doing as the controller of his puppet strings tells him to.

Before Trump became president, he strongly supported, then president, Bill Clinton’s assault weapons ban. But running for office he presented himself as a supporter of gun rights, among other things, and lied and made false promises all the way to the White House.

The most egregious act, the real barometer of what kind of idiot Trump is, came when he declared that we should simply go take people’s property from them for no apparent reason other than fear, and worry about due process later. His words fell on the selective hearing loss ears of the blind followers of this man’s lies and promises. We will never learn.

The only way any government, even those strongly supported by non-governmental organizations, can take away and destroy the rights of people, including those rights which originally were considered unalienable, is to do it incrementally and systematically. An all out assault and immediate taking away of the right to keep and bear arms would create a crisis so large even the “expert” purveyors of Hegel’s Dialectic could not manage the outcome. Thus it must be done slowly and methodically. This is what we see going on right in front of our noses.

At present we see the fallout from fabricated crises, all happening at the same time. There is the made up immigration problem, the orchestrated mass shootings, the embellished issues with the NRA, and a federal election just one year away. What a better opportunity to play false crises one against another to accomplish the third part of the Dialectic.

Nothing is ever coincidental. It is not simply a coincidence that with a new party take over of the House of Representatives, the takeover consisting of those most vocal about taking away Second Amendment privileges, that with the loud calls for “gun control” we see more events of mass shootings.

(Note: There are increasing inherent dangers in numerous uses of the Hegelian Dialectic. For the “never let a good crisis go to waste” to be effective, each successive crisis must be bigger and scarier to have the desired effect on the masses of circus goers.)

Of course the mass shootings have to be connected to immigration – a “twofor” if you will, playing one against the other. At the same time, with the NRA in “crisis,” real or imagined, the opportunity is in prime time to win more of the Bread and Circus goers over to increased gun control.

Real or imagined, the NRA is perceived by far too many people, as being the most powerful supporter of gun rights – is the cup half full or half empty. Because the Dialectic has been in play for so long, the slow and distinct gnawing away of gun rights occurs with each passing false flag “crisis.” The real function of the NRA is to control the bleeding, never to stop the action that causes the wound. The NRA, therefore, is part of the controlled opposition and never the opposition.

With the passing of time, a fabricated crisis weakens and is soon forgotten…that is if left alone. The Washington Post is running a headline claiming a mass shooting every 47 days. For mass shootings to continue to be an effective means of perpetuating the crisis in search of a result, look for that number to continue to drop and become more frequent and with each orchestrated event becoming more horrific.

Death, blood, and guts grabs the attention of the masses. Once you have their attention then talk can be implemented as part of the embellishment of the false crisis. This embellishment works perfectly with stirring up the calls for “there ought to be a law.” Congress is happy to oblige…after all, isn’t that the reason for the crisis?

With a country rapidly giving away its freedoms, all in the name of security, what remains is a suppressed existence even more needy of government than before the fabricated crisis – a position government wants us to be in.

Whether the NRA is being systematically destroyed in order to deliver the needed support to the complete repeal of the Second Amendment, or is purposefully being brought to a weakened state in order to increase the chances of implementing more gun control, remains to be seen.

Regardless, Hegel’s Dialectic is a powerful and useful to government tool that allows government to increase their control over a free country. Once the freedoms are gone, there is little left for the masses except those occasional nights out at the “circuses” and the bread crumbs for sustenance.

Perhaps the NRA’s Systematic Approach to Destroying Gun Rights Just Isn’t Moving Fast Enough

I was reading this morning more useless nonsense about the toxic excrement show going on at the NOW defunct and going belly up, NRA. One reader referred to Wayne LaPierre and members of the NRA’s Board of Directors as scumbags. I guess that about best describes them all and the vote of no confidence present within the membership.

If nothing else comes out of the dog and pony sideshow, perhaps members will finally get it that the NRA is NOT anyone’s friend because of their continued slow destruction of the Second Amendment. For many, many years members, stupid enough to give these bought and paid for “lobbyists” their money to perform more magic shows, were clueless as to what exactly was going on. Maybe now some of them are beginning to see the light.

To those with an honest perspective on things, i.e. not so unquestioningly automated in blindly following a corrupt organization, have known for decades that the NRA has done a magnificent job of pulling the wool over the eyes of their members. The NRA has slowly and with purpose whittled away at making the Second Amendment a worthless document, ensuring that American serfs are never guaranteed an unalienable right to self defense and to keep and bear arms, and instead eager to allow the government (where the majority of NRA administrators got their training) to mete out privileges as they deem appropriate. To accomplish this the NRA piled gobs of greenbacks in their bank coffers to pay the exorbitantly high salaries of their heads like Wayne LaPierre, while concentrating their operational business with good-ole-boy companies and legal firms.

Perhaps the real leadership, those who control what the NRA does, has decided that this incrementalism of Second Amendment destruction isn’t going fast enough. Perhaps they have decided that it is time to destroy the NRA in order to provide a gap, even if it’s a false gap, in their false gun rights activism and money grubbing ways, in order to move the process of ridding the country, once and for all, of any thoughts of a person’s right to keep and bear arms.

When you consider that the NRA is headquartered in the “Holy Roman” Empire State, a state whose government has all power and control over this “not for profit” (wink-wink) organization, shouldn’t members have been asking why?

When you realize that the heads of the NRA, over time, have manipulated the structure of the organization in such a way that the current Chief Executive and Executive Vice President of the NRA has near dictatorial status and can do pretty much just as he damn well pleases, shouldn’t members have been asking why?

When you realize that Wayne LaPierre was “raised in the Catholic Church” and was Jesuit-trained at Boston College, and now turns a blind eye to the calls of millions of NRA members for him to go, shouldn’t members be asking why?

The damage has been done. Any thoughts that American serfs had in the power of the NRA to protect their Second Amendment rights went out the window a long time ago. Now, the destruction of the organization itself, perhaps deliberately so, lies in the balance. It’s probably too late for the NRA to right itself and maybe that is the conspiratorial purpose all along.

With successes with infighting and disgruntled members, little credibility remains with the NRA which opens the door for an onslaught of anti gun legislations at state and federal levels. What was once a slow, trickling death, will soon turn into a steady flow rendering the United States Corporation of meted out privileges another disarmed country that can very easily set the stage for eventual dictatorial rule with no fear of citizen opposition or more accurately, a citizenry capable of fighting back.

Members should be asking themselves who, exactly, does control the NRA and what is their real purpose?

Dog and Pony Show at the NRA

Regular readers know my position on what should be a person’s unquestioned right to self-protection. They should also know that that right does NOT include giving the government more control over, not only what I see is never questioned rights (not something meted out by a corrupt government), but how and where I can protect myself and my property.

There’s a Dog and Pony Show going on at the NRA – no surprise to me knowing the make-up and character of the NRA. The executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre, has been accused of recklessly spending money for self pleasures, Oliver North was fired as president of the NRA (I guess because he tried to stop LaPierre), and now the NRA’s top lobbyist, Chris Cox, has been fired, perhaps because he was in on North’s attempted coup.

In an earlier writing I posted, I wrote: “…why would anyone think that the NRA is not a part of the so-called, and laughable, SWAMP the uninformed complain about in Washington? It tickles me that ignorant people think a “Swamp” is something new, when in reality “Swamps” have existed since Adam and Eve.”

The “Swamp” at the NRA is bubbling, however, the NRA “Swamp” leadership might be making a huge mistake. They think their do-do don’t stink when it smells so bad it could gag a maggot. The membership is roiling to a point they are ready to abandon ship, but not necessarily because of how LaPierre spends their money, although it is a catalyst.

In all of this smoke and mirrors, this morning I was reading an opinion piece published at Ammoland. The content of the opinion piece was one thing but the comments left after the piece are the canary in the coal mine perhaps.

I certainly have been around the block a time or two and understand that 26 comments left on one website about the NRA is not a scientific barometer of the supposed 5-million members of the NRA. Consider this anyway.

In reading through everyone of the comments left, there is not one comment that thinks the NRA is any longer THE top Second Amendment advocacy group. As a matter of fact, most of those leaving comments stated they are seriously considering ending their memberships and most also are refusing to give the NRA any more money or support in any way.

Consider, if you will, nearly all of the comments left voiced opposition to the direction the NRA has gone; that they are compromising, through negotiations with gun control groups, our Second Amendment rights. They also state that both LaPierre and Chris Cox are together on those compromises, which include supporting “Red Flag” laws and destruction of “Due Process,” pointing out that president Trump supported the ban on “bump stocks” and was one of the first to call out “take their guns away and worry about due process later.”

If these comments are any indication as to how the majority of Second Amendment supporters really feel, the NRA might be in more serious trouble than some think. Also consider that such actions are bound to have trickle-down effects to state and local gun rights groups, sportsman’s groups, and politicians in how they stand on Second Amendment issues.

If we consider the State of Maine for an example, the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine (SAM), along with Gun Owners of Maine, and the Maine Chapter of the NRA, supported and helped write a bill that was passed by the Maine Legislature in recent days, that clearly robs a person of any due process of the law and protection of their rights and personal property.

I was shocked that the leadership at SAM would actually write and support such legislation, to the point I called for the executive director of SAM to be asked to step down by the membership. And, it appears that the SAM board must also go along with this “compromise” Red Flag bill, as there are nothing but crickets coming from Maine’s leading sportsman’s advocacy group.

Is SAM out of touch, just like the NRA? Are all of these quasi or fake Second Amendment groups in serious trouble because the clear majority of Second Amendment supporters are sick and tired of their right to keep and bear arms (shall never be questioned) being systematically taken away one compromise at a time.

I would expect nothing more from big, false, controlled opposition, Second Amendment groups like the NRA. It appears that the NRA’s influence has trickled down to state groups like SAM who have some righting of their own ship to take care of if they wish to survive.

While the ponies circle the ring, I will watch and see what kind of tricks the dogs will do. If one dog does a back flip, the pony might not be where it’s supposed to be and the dog will fall and maybe be hurt.

The NRA Is Also a Swamp That Should Be Drained

I have been reading stuff lately that tells me the NRA operations by the upper executives is no different than all other political organizations, all of which lose (or never had) sight of who they are, what they do and supposedly whom they work for. There’s trouble at the NRA.

Like all organizations that become too big for their britches, we discover wasteful spending and corruption, followed by distracting techniques hoped to draw member’s attention away from the dirty laundry.

Why would anybody…no, seriously…why would ANYBODY think that the NRA (National Rifle Association) is somehow immune to all the crap and corruption that we find flourishing in all political, corporate, military groups, etc? And, why would anyone think that the NRA is not a part of the so-called, and laughable, SWAMP the uninformed complain about in Washington? It tickles me that ignorant people (meaning they have no knowledge or background into anything real but love to latch onto catch words and phrases sort of like high school cheerleaders attempting to keep interest and excitement in their events) think a “Swamp” is something new, when in reality “Swamps” have existed since Adam and Eve.

The NRA is a swamp that is kept muddy from the very members and cheerleaders of the political Swamps that head the corruption in Washington and all centers of political interest.

I read an open letter to the NRA published by Ammoland to Wayne LaPierre, head of the NRA present. Oh, but let’s not try to hide anything here. The author of the open letter happens to be: “…an NRA instructor and member of the Los Padres “Friends of the NRA” committee.”

So, what do we call this guy, a Swamplette?

I was also curious about the comments that followed the open letter left by readers. One reader said, “This is exactly what we hate about our elected officials (Congress & Senate)! Enriching themselves at the expense of voters who trusted them.”

I ask the question again. Why should anybody think the Swamp of the NRA is any different than the Swamp of Washington/Congress/White House? When you stop and think (nobody does anymore) about who heads the NRA throughout history, only an idiot would think leadership at the NRA would be any different than leadership in Washington. After all, NRA past presidents, for the most part, have simply moved from political power over to head the NRA. The majority of past NRA presidents have been politicians, political activists/lobbyists, movie stars, high-profile criminals, war heroes, etc. The NRA, in choosing its leadership, looks for someone who is part of the “Swamp” (sorry, nobody really knows what a Swamp is) and of a high profile in order to entice people to join and waste their money on the corruption known as the NRA Swamp. Go ahead. You love to do that.

People actually believe the NRA is independent of Washington and has done so many remarkable things. The writer of the Open Letter even begins his letter by stating that if it hadn’t been for the NRA, “firearms would have been banned…” in the 1990s. Seriously! He wrote that. All bow down to the NRA.

Suppose for a minute that the NRA was abolished, or that due to corruption, members left the confines of the corrupt NRA and headed over to other corrupt gun owner/gun rights groups. I doubt anything would really change, except Wayne LaPierre might not be wearing such expensive suits, but perhaps we might have been able to actually keep more of our gun rights if the NRA hadn’t given them away for political reasons. As the old saying goes, who needs enemies when we got friends like this?

If the “Swamp” is so bad, then why do we shop at the Swamp looking for the leadership for our political fraternities? When the NRA, and other entities, are headed by former corrupt politicians (all politicians are corrupt, that is why they are politicians) why shouldn’t we believe that the NRA is all part of the bigger, corrupt world of politics? Geez, we just don’t get it. We don’t WANT to GET IT!

Oh, don’t act surprised or angry that I should write such stuff about the NRA. Get your heads out of the sand and stop thinking just because you’re a member of the NRA it is actually looking out for your best interest. All they care about is what’s in your wallet and how they can get it away from you. So far, they have been quite remarkable at getting a lot of that green stuff.

ALL Swamps suck!

Due Process IS Damned

Maine is but one example of how, what is left of and thought of as our rights under the U.S. Constitution and the Constitutions of individual States, are being systematically destroyed. This destruction is actually all part of the administering of the Constitutions by administrators/the elected, mostly ignorant and definitely bred to be the good totalitarians they are in order to carry out the wants and demands of the fascists who rule.

Perhaps, rather than state that what is “thought to be our rights under the constitutions” are being destroyed, it is more precise to say that, to some, a revelation of the actual intent of the constitution is being revealed and as such appears as a destruction of rights.

Originally Maine proposed a bill, LD 1312, a precise “red flag” bill that blatantly would ensure that any person THOUGHT to be a danger to themselves or others would be stripped of due process of the law all in the name of someone’s, or group of someones’, perspective as to their mental abilities and capacities – a value-weighted mindset derived by one’s ideology.

The Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine (SAM) and the NRA strongly opposed LD 1312 but for some strange reason they took up the cross of the governor and gun control advocates and went to work to devise a bill that would accomplish the same thing but to a lesser degree. They devised LD 1811, a bit whitewashed from LD 1312 but still stripped an accused person of their “right” (or at least a system partially shared by others) to due process. LD 1811, wrongly pares the loss of due process down to a minimum of 14 days but still provides for a person to effectively go on endlessly in “protective custody” and having their private property, which happens to be property thought to be protected under both the Federal and State Constitutions right to keep and bear arms (and shall never be questioned), with many of the meted out rights withdrawn.

It was brought to my attention by a friend that in testimony before the legislative subcommittee the sponsor of LD 1312, the original “red flag” proposal, stated that the intent of the bill was to “get the guns out of the house.” While the sponsors of this bill willingly admit that the bill is intended to take guns away from anyone THEY deem necessary (one law enforcement person and one medical person), it appears as though the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine (SAM) has approached their attempt at “compromising” with the governor and other gun haters from the perspective of a gun rights proposal with little attention, perhaps due to ignorance, given to the blatant violation of due process and what would appear as a deliberate disregard of a person’s right to not have their property taken away first and at some future point in time administer some degree of due process. While SAM states its opposition to a loss of a person’s right to Due Process, they certainly have a strange way of showing it.

About a year ago, I wrote a piece called, “By Whom is Due Process of Law Administered?” I reread that the other day and once again this morning to examine how my thoughts at that time coincide with my thoughts at the moment as regards this red flag law proposal taking place in Maine and other states. I find that the year-old article is precise and certainly applies to the actions of today. I hope you take the time to read and/or reread that piece.

Here is some of what I wrote: “

What may have been your grandfather’s “Due Process” doesn’t even carry the same DNA as today’s Due Process and at the rate things are changing and that “balanced constitutional system” gets more and more out of whack – to those with sense enough to see it – we have as much hope remaining to cling to Due Process as we do the Second Amendment or any other Constitutional article that might stand in the way of the Global Power Structure.

“Due Process is a subjective matter and was designed as such. Due Process is as much as society will tolerate and the government can get away with. Even though society believes that the Constitution gives them Due Process and that this “balanced constitutional system” works, they are wrong. We even constantly hear of those screaming to get out and vote in order to get those wanting to upset that “balanced constitutional system” (rigged) out of office and replaced with another clone/drone and yet, nothing ever changes. Oppression and tyranny march forward in a slow and methodical pace, hidden behind a shroud of watered-down constitutional rights and due process.

“Invoking Due Process is a worthless instrument. So long as Congress “makes all laws which are necessary and proper” and voting in new blood doesn’t change anything, then we are left with but one choice – continue to convince ourselves that we are guaranteed Due Process, along with all those other “rights” meted out by men for slaves.

“Due Process be Damned!!!!!”

What is contained in the constitution is doled out to the citizen-serfs as it benefits the administrative governments and the Global Power Structure. Until such time as people can, somehow, get a grasp on that reality, all of the rest of this becomes an exercise in frustration, anger, and endless futility.

Think back of the turmoil that surrounded the attacks on the World Trade Center. Then President Bush and his flock of fascists crammed the “Patriot Act” down our throats. Most American’s bought into the song and dance and eagerly gave up certain rights (they thought they had) and permitted the government to set aside any thoughts of Due Process in exchange for “SECURITY.” We bought it and still do.

Here we are sneaking up on 20 years later and we see totalitarian subjects/activists doing what the government did back then. How convenient for the Feds and now the state governments. In the name of “security” and “public safety” we are staged to continue an onslaught against liberties and freedom regardless of the effect.

If Due Process is allotted in ways that are only beneficial to the wishes of the Ruling Establishment, then the frustration and anger becomes prevalent because we believe a “right” has been taken away, when, in fact, it was never there as we thought…or at least as a clear and precise guaranteed right.

While American citizens try to hang on to what is a mixed up allotment of “rights” and “privileges,” in hopes that it will make their lives better, it becomes even more discouraging and confrontational when those whom we thought share the belief that rights, regardless of the control we may or may not have over them, are worth trying to protect, are now seemingly working to dismantle in the name of security. It all sounds too familiar. What are we doing?

Even if we don’t have much of any control over our perceived rights, doing what we can to slow down the governments from complete and instant tyrannical control may be in our best interest. Getting on board to do the work of tyrannical governments makes no sense and makes one question why anyone would do such a thing.
