Be Careful About Seeking Gun Control

In early 1900, just after World War I and leading up to the time that Germany was ruled by the Weimar Republic in 1928, the German people became convinced that their “bogymen” were “communists.” Efforts by some, during the chaos that surrounded the war and the rebuilding, convinced the German people that “communists” were going to gain control over the government and destroy them all. At times the political manipulators created events and/or blamed the “communists” for any and all gun violence, using this as a tool to further put fear into the minds of the German people. It worked.

The result was an all out eagerness to disarm the populace in order to make sure the “communists” couldn’t get their hands on guns. Did it work? No, we know that it didn’t. What it did do, which I believe was a well planned event, was to lay the groundwork for Hitler. Once taking office, he systematically disarmed anyone that opposed him and his fascist regime and murdered millions of people.

History is repeating itself, yet we deny it. The United States has bogymen. We have “mentally ill” people committing mass murder; “home-grown terrorists”; we have “bitter people, clinging to guns and religion”; we have “global warming deniers” that many believe should be prosecuted for; we have “ISIS” and “al Qaida”; if they are not here yet, they will be. Should we disarm the people to make sure these bogymen can’t buy our guns? All of this aimed at scaring American’s into giving up their rights in the name of safety.

All of these bogymen, lay the groundwork for disarmament of the American people. We are programmed to see guns as terribly bad things, while failing to see the reason it was important many years ago that our founders knew a citizenry not capable of defending themselves and preventing tyrannical government destruction of the people, meant slavery, oppression, repression, and murder.

Perhaps we can catch a glimpse of a couple of American citizens, and millions like them, programmed to live in fear and willing to give up to the wishes of government, ceding any ability they might have to fight against fascism and dictatorial rule.

We find one Letter to the Editor from someone asking that Congress pass a gun control law just like the one Australia has: “a law under which 700,000 guns were collected and retired from use.”

“A person wishing to buy a gun in Australia has to wait 28 days to get a license to own it, and family members in his household can be questioned by police before a license is granted.”

In a second letter, a writer mocks the efforts by two who support the Second Amendment in his attempt at demonizing anyone who would oppose “reasonable” gun control/human control. He suggests that these two politicians should take their strong support of the Second Amendment a step further and: “offer free guns to those who do not have them.”

What a great idea. Of course the writer says that the reason free guns should be given to those who don’t have them is so: “they can defend themselves from those who do have them.” Nobody needs to defend themselves from the millions of Americans who own millions of guns. What they need protection from are the criminals and that includes the criminals working in Washington. That is the purpose of the Second Amendment.

Gun Laws: Creeping Toward Fascist Rule

FascesPresident Barack H. Obama is presently meeting with his legal advisers to examine how he can “legally” erode the Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms, through Executive Action. Because of a listless society and a corrupt Congress, providing for presidents, current and past, to write laws via a method of bypassing Congress, we are headed toward dictatorial, fascist rule…inch by inch. Historically, this has happened before. We live in dangerous times, with many reasons to fear, such usurpation is on our doorstep.

While it may be already too late, a first step necessary to stop the bleeding is to recognize where the blood is coming from and how the injury happened.

Here is a brief examination of one example of how it happened and a comparative look at what’s happening today. Perhaps it’s time to stop denying truth and Wake Up, America!

There is real danger in America’s bent to make everything politically correct. The term itself, political correctness, is representative of American culture today in that we find misleading or poor representative terms and phrases to give something title instead of calling it what it is. In this case, political correctness is nothing more than censorship. To the intelligent, censorship is a loss of our right to free speech.

Censorship, is a taking away of the rights of free men. All laws are, to some degree, the taking away of the rights of free men. We have been taught to believe that all laws are proper and necessary for the protection of a free society. This is an oxymoron of epic proportions – a disease with seemingly no cure. We see it in several parts of our political and societal existence – believing we are creating a cure for a problem only to discover the created cure exacerbates the problem.

Political Correctness has more far-reaching dangers than most realize. In a post-normal society, like that of the United States, history is being repeated, not only because it is not being taught, or not being taught honestly, but it cannot be taught accurately because history has been hijacked, the end result, some of which is, political correctness.

The censorship of free speech, i.e. political correctness, forces all of us to teach half-truths in history, while often failing to address the root causes of prominent social, economic and political issues. Therefore, there is no learning process because history is watered down, while sinister processes ensure no discussion of truthful matters perpetuates the valuable lessons that should be learned from historic events. Perhaps none is more evident than modern speech and censorship when attempting to discuss the results of fascist rule of Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich. The most prominent of political correctness can be seen whenever anyone attempts to make any kind of correlation with current events and those of Hitler. Even if some of us have learned from history, isn’t the censorship a tool to cover up the horrors of fascist rule? Perhaps the censorship in this instance is a planned event. I happen to think it is. For those seeking ultimate power and control over all people and resources, nothing would be more detrimental to that agenda than bringing to review the actual historic accounts of repressive, murderous regimes like Hitler’s.

Before Hitler gained power in Germany, certain events took place that laid the groundwork for, not only the elevation of the Hitler regime to political prominence, but what was to take place after that power was ceded away from the socialist-democratic government of Germany.

Nearly every American is willing to cede his/her rights because they have been bred to believe it is necessary for safety, the rule of law and national security, while at the same time willing to blindly follow their government, wishing never to believe their government would ever resort to Fascism and/or dictatorial reign. By giving away those rights, it places the control of that part of you into the hands of a centralized government. History should have taught us that the bigger and stronger a centralized government becomes, the smaller our freedoms and liberties become. Yet, we follow the wrong path.

As such, a majority of Americans are convinced that something called “reasonable gun control laws” are necessary for various reasons and something that fits into a progressive society. Such benign behavior has resulted in the murder of millions of people throughout the world.

We must, therefore, compare and correlate what led up to the takeover of the Hitler Regime in Germany and events taking place in America today. The comparisons are so similar, one would have to question whether or not the same evil that brought about the disarming of Germany and the Holocaust is in play in the United States today. In history we read such things that took place in Germany in the early 1900s that clearly set the stage for Hitler’s fascist rule. These events read as current events in the U.S.

Prior to the Hitler Regime, Germany consisted of independent states, with the liberty to create their own laws, similar to the way the U.S. once was. History reveals that many of these states would begin campaigns to disarm feared political opponents and those who might threaten the existing governments. This fear was of a “communist” take over perpetuated by those with political influence. This eventually led to laws aimed at disarming the citizenry.

It seemed that in Germany, a country that once allowed for the private possession of weapons, not that much unlike those of the United States, a new regime of social democrats began an effort to limit the right to keep and bear arms, based on the fear that communists, who might be able to buy and possess arms, would become a threat to the ruling party. History should have taught us that a fearful society is a society ripe for the picking.

Even prior to the 1928 enactment of the Weimar Republic, the chaos that existed in Germany led to the passage of  “the Verordnung des Rates der Volksbeauftragen über Waffenbesitz (Regulations of the Council of the People’s Delegates on Weapons Possession). This gun control law demanded the immediate surrender to the central government of all weapons and ammunition. Failure to do so would lead to imprisonment.

This law passed because of the fear generated that another war might start if guns and ammunition were not controlled. This law was later repealed and replaced with different gun laws that, on the surface, appeared more benign, but would ultimately lead to the easy pickings by a fascist regime.

These draconian gun laws were responsible for the onset of semi-governmental groups of thugs and those who took it upon themselves to be the enforcers of new gun regulations. Unfortunately, at least one of these groups was the foundation of the move in Germany to National Socialism.

In 1920, the Law on the Disarmament of the People passed. This law gave a Reichskommissar the authority to decided which guns were “military” in style – perhaps better understood by Americans to define an “assault weapon,” – and who could and could not buy or possess.

By 1928 and the rule of the Weimar Republic, it was decided to pass a “comprehensive” gun law – Law on Firearms and Ammunition. This law required a license for anyone interested in making, assembling or repairing guns and ammunition and the sale thereof. In addition, the same law prohibited any selling of arms and ammo at fairs, shooting competitions or related events.

Anyone wishing to own a weapon, now had to apply for a license. Those wishing to carry a firearm, had to obtain another license. All of these regulations certainly should be familiar to most Americans. If they don’t already exist, totalitarians continue to demand exactly what the German national socialists were demanding.

But the laws didn’t stop at licensing. Authority was given to the Reichskommissar to make sure that a license was given only to “persons whose reliability is not in doubt, and only after proving a need for them.” (Background checks to show you are not listed on some fake “domestic terror watchlist,” had psychiatric treatment or some other “condition” left up to the discretion of a man or panel of men.) In certain cases of undesirable classes of people, a right to own and/or carry a gun was automatically denied.

If you were legally licensed, there were limits as to how many guns and how much ammunition you could have on hand. These limitations varied depending upon what the “proving a need” involved. Hunting provided guns of certain types different than target shooters. Hunters had to buy a license to hunt and that license provided further gun and ammunition regulations that were strictly enforced. And remember, these licenses were issued to only those the government deemed completely trustworthy and were not known to be in opposition to the central government, later the Nazis.

Eventually, it became illegal to manufacture any weapon that could be, “rapid disassembly beyond the generally usual extent for hunting and sporting purposes.” (more assault weapons to be banned)

Prison terms were established for violation of these laws, including laws that required immediate notification to authorities in the event that someone inherited a gun or ammunition.

The Reichskommissar at the time, Kuenzer, in an explanation of the need to implement the new gun regulations, explains: “The law necessitated long consultations in the Reichsrat [legislative assembly] because it interferes strongly with the police authority of the Länder [states].”

Included in this “comprehensive” gun law, was the prohibition of individual states to make any gun laws on their own. All states were now subject to the wishes and whims of gun control of the central government.

Reichskommissar Kuenzer explained the reason it was necessary to implement a “comprehensive” (reasonable) gun law: “The purpose and goal of the law at hand are to get firearms that have done so much damage from the hands of unauthorized persons and to do away with the instability and ambiguity of the law that previously existed in this area. The difficult task was to find the appropriate limits between this necessity of the state on the one hand and the important interests of the weapons industry that was employing a large number of workers and had been heavily damaged through the peace treaty, the interests of the legal sporting industry, and the personal freedom of the individual.”

Now that gun manufacturing was completely controlled by the central government, all guns manufactured commercially had to be stamped with the name of the company that made it, or sold it; “in the interest of solving criminal acts committed with firearms.” 

All of these “reasonable” gun regulations should sound very familiar to Americans. We have listened to the demands of totalitarians for more gun control, while voicing all the same claims as those in Germany 100 years ago. Germans, after World War I, lived in fear and chaos, much because the government and other political factions, pounded the fear of communism into the people’s brains. Eventually they believed that it was necessary to give up their rights if it would protect them from the communists.

In America today, we have our government pounding into our heads fear of terrorism from “radicalized Muslims,” and other events like mass shootings. Now that terror attacks, by “radical Muslims” have occurred in this country, the centralized government is demanding more gun restrictions, convincing more and more people that with stricter laws, terrorists will not be able to inflict harm on the people. It seems that this was the same reasoning that Reichskommissar Kuenzer used in his explanation to the German people.

The above historic synopsis of German gun rights, all happened BEFORE the Hitler Regime took control. There is no doubt these actions set the stage for fascist rule.

We know some of what Hitler did. We know that he completed the gun grab, taking all guns away from anybody he did not want to have them. It should be noted that Hitler, shortly after taking power, basically suspended the German Constitution and gave himself the authority to write and implement laws, without the authority or approval of the Reichsrat.

Examination of the events in the United States reveals that the U.S. Constitution has, for the most part, been suspended. Many laws are written by Congress and signed by the president that do not conform to the constitution. In addition, all actions, whether legal or not, carried out without opposition, sets precedent and therefore becomes law by default. This same shameful act happens in the Courts. With each administration “policy” is established. Once again, history, unlearned, reveals that “policy” becomes the law of the land by unchallenged precedent.

When Hitler first came to office, he worked with his administration and departments, to implement his Third Reich ideology. As we have learned, eventually he was given the power to write any laws he wanted. In America today, we now see the growing, illegal act of presidents writing their own laws through “executive actions.” The longer this goes unchallenged, the more Americans run the risk of dictatorial rule as we saw with Hitler.

Over 100 years ago, people didn’t believe anyone or any government as dark and sinister as the Hitler Regime could attain power into any country. Even when Hitler was carrying out his genocide, Americans, and much of the rest of the world denied it was happening. Where did that denial lead us?

Today, we live with the same denials. We go about our business believing that any gun laws are mostly benign and that any “reasonable” gun laws are done for the safety of the people and to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and terrorists. History proves this never happens. History proves that disarming the people, leads to Fascism.

Political Correctness results in efforts to prohibit free speech about Hitler and the most effort goes into finding ways to block any discussions that make comparisons of Hitler with anyone or anything in America today. The denial and repression of truth will lead to death.

Was President Eisenhower Prescient on Global Warming Alarmists?

When Eisenhower penned this speech, his focus and concern was that the nation could be misled and public policy manipulated in the name of national defense by what he called the military-industrial complex. However, a closer look at what he was actually describing reveals a broader context.

Eisenhower was alerting the public to the danger that dogma could someday permeate and dominate their government. He envisioned the source for promoting this transcendent dogma as a scientific-technological elite, whose viewpoints and policy recommendations would become blindly accepted.

Oregon 1843 “Wolf Meetings”

Hat tip to Idaho for Wildlife

SOURCE

On May 2, 1843, Willamette Valley settlers met at Champoeg to vote on the formation of a provisional government. The minutes recorded by George Le Breton recount both the close vote in favor of the provisional government (52-50) and the subsequent appointments of settlers to fill the positions created at the meeting.

As the number of Euro American settlers living in the Willamette Valley increased over the course of the 1830s, so, too, did the recognition that some type of government would have to be formed. Attempts to establish a provisional government before 1843 were thwarted by intense factionalism among the settlers. The largest of these divisions was that which existed between the Methodist Mission, led by Jason Lee, and the Catholic Church, headed by Father Francis Blanchet. The religious underpinnings ensured that the settlers would be divided along cultural lines as well, with most Americans supporting the Methodist faction and the majority of the region’s French-Canadian population supporting that of the Catholics. Compounding the divide was the powerful regional presence of the Hudson’s Bay Company and John McLoughlin, who favored the Catholic position and opposed any increased power for the Methodists. The existence of these factions—each of which had its own internal divisions—created an environment in which compromise and agreement would prove elusive.

Despite the absence of a formal government, the early settlers of the Willamette Valley did appoint members of the community as legal decision makers when the need arose. In 1835 a criminal court was formed to hear the case of Thomas Hubbard, who was accused of a murder committed on Sauvie Island and in 1841 a probate judge was selected to handle the estate of Ewing Young, an ex-mountain man and cattle rancher who died without a will. This particular judge continued to hear probate cases until the provisional government was established in 1843.

Of the many meetings that were held to discuss the political status of the region, two in particular are considered especially important in influencing the establishment of a provisional government. The first of these meetings was held at the Oregon Institute, a school for white children in Oregon City, on February 2, 1843 and the second was held at the home of Joseph Gervais on March 6, 1843. These “wolf meetings” were ostensibly held to discuss how to solve the problem posed by increasing attacks on local livestock by wolves, bears, and cougars. At issue was the establishment of a bounty system in which all residents would contribute to a general fund that would pay bounties for dead predators. An executive committee was formed to both collect and distribute what was essentially the first local tax. It was through the establishment of this committee that the seeds for an organized government were sown. Less than two months later, the majority of the region’s settlers approved the formation of Oregon’s provisional government.

Albert Pike’s Prediction to “Unleash the Nihilists”

In today’s Open Thread, I posted a photo of the statue of Albert Pike that stands in Washington, D.C. supposedly as a tribute to one of the “leaders” of the Confederacy during the Civil War. The headline accompanying it said, “People go out of their way to find things offensive, yet overlook this.” This is done probably because nobody bothers to read and in particular read history beyond what the Government and the ruling establishment wants you to read.

Pike was a leader of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry (Illuminati) and strove to bring about a “New World Order.” This New World Order, most people don’t understand. He was also a founding father and head of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry and Grand Commander of North American Freemasonry. In 1869 he was a top leader of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and wrote the Masonic Handbook, “The Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Rite of Freemasonry.”

In the book “Terrorism and the Illuminati: A Three Thousand Year History“, author David Livingstone writes of Albert Pike and his quest for a New World Order. In a letter Pike wrote to Giuseppe Mazzini, founder of the Italian Mafia and activist, long before World War I, predicted three world wars as part of the plan to bring the world to a place of a “New World Order.”

At the conclusion of World War III, evidently a war against Muslims, Pike also predicts what will take place that will bring on a “global social cataclysm,” an event “greater than the world has ever known” :

“We shall unleash the Nihilists [meaning terrorists] and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”

It probably doesn’t take the most brilliant of minds to understand that the power source of what Albert Pike was a part of and helped to create, predicted and carried out no less than the two world wars. Is a third world coming? Have the Nihilist been unleashed, even prior to a third world war?

Not only was Albert Pike writing the words of Satan, but his words closely follow the prophecies of the Bible.

In all honesty, when one examines the real life of Albert Pike, not only would that same honest person question the motives behind Pike’s leadership of the Confederacy during the Civil War, but should the United States be honoring a man whose objectives where, not only a new world order, but the utter destruction of Christianity and the raising up of Luciferian worship, among other sinister programs?

Perhaps we need to ask ourselves if a government that, historically, honors such men and other anti-Christian, anti-Christ events with plaques and statues widely spread throughout the Masonic-designed Washington, D.C., is a perpetrator of all things that will lead to the destruction of the nation – one supposedly founded on Biblical principles, i.e. the onset of a third world war, with the unleashing of terrorism in order to destroy this and other nations for the purpose of honoring and worshiping Lucifer.

Where are the citizens who claim such offensive actions and yet overlook this?

PARENS PATRIAE….GOVERNMENT AS PARENT

In the case New Hampshire v. Louisiana and others.; New York v. Louisiana and others, (1) it states that: “all the rights of the States as independent nations were surrendered to the United States. The States are not nations, either as between themselves or towards foreign nations. They are sovereign within their spheres, but their sovereignty stops short of nationality. Their political status at home and abroad is that of States in the united States. They can neither make war nor peace without the consent of the national government. Neither can they, except with like consent, “enter into any agreement or compact with another State.” Art. 1, sec. 10, cl. 3. “The relation of one of the united States to its citizens is not that of an independent sovereign State to its citizens. A sovereign State seeking redress of another sovereign State on behalf of its citizens can resort to war on refusal, which a State cannot do. The state, having been a sovereign, with powers to make war, issue letters of marque and reprisal, and otherwise to act in a belligerent way, resigned these powers into the control of the United States, to be held in trust.”

A new low in science: Criminalizing climate change skeptics

*Editor’s Note* – The above title to this article is the one included with the Fox News story. It says “A new low in science.” I agree taht it is a low for science, but is it really a low for science as much as it is a low for the preservation of rights and a call for government repression?

About 10 days ago, I provided readers with a link to a related story on this topic, where fascists want to jail those that disagree with their propaganda on man-caused climate change. Below is another story dealing with the same issue.

Secondary in this debate is arguing the points, real or imagined, as to the existence of some form of anthropogenic global warming. The main issue should be, but isn’t necessarily, that the calling for such action, while defining the fake “progressive” agenda, treads all over what should be American’s rights to free speech and to question authority. In addition, it is a means of suppressing real scientific research, which will cause our own destruction by causing scientific chaos.

In U.S. History, we know that it was John Adams who first pushed for and got, passage of the Alien and Sedition Acts, disguised as some form of “national security” in a nonexistent, fake war.

The Sedition Act of 1918, another form of blatant censorship, also hidden behind the lie that people saying bad things about the U.S. Government, placed the country in greater danger and reduced the ability of the Government to sell War Bonds.

No matter how you slice it, government-created sedition is nothing more than repression, censorship and the destruction of rights to free speech. Today, our government has loaded up on many forms of the suppression of rights and we take it – the Patriot Act comes to mind.

Progressives/Leftists love to lay claim to the promotion of man-caused climate change and yet, we clearly see the blatant regression that exists in order to push their agenda. It’s all lies!

Hiding behind the lie that the earth is coming to an end, caused by a warming climate, rising sea levels, etc. now they push for acts of fascism that would force and imprison anyone who speaks out against their positions. Why can’t people see that this is what “climate change” is all about? To promote the lie, you promote your own imprisonment. Who will you call on then?

If those who promote man-caused climate change had the actual science to back up their claims, then there would be no need for the call for prosecution and imprisonment of those “skeptics.” Historically, the results of the scientific process has stood alone.

As ironic as some of this may appear, there actually may exist pockets of man-caused weather and climate manipulations, the result of chemical and metals, aerosol spraying by our government in our atmosphere, combined with the technology of HAARP, to produce weather phenomenon, i.e. droughts, floods, severe storms, earthquakes, etc.

Propaganda is used to influence public opinion. What greater influence might there be on people than to point to government/military-caused disasters and then claim it happens because you and I burn gasoline in our cars?

We really need to wake up in this country and take a hard look at the direction we have gone. At this rate, what hope is there?

One group of climate scientists is trying a different approach. Dismayed by what they see as a lack of progress on the implementation of climate policies that they support, these 20 scientists sent a letter to the White House calling for their political opponents to be investigated by the government.In particular, they are voicing their support of a proposal by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) for a RICO investigation of fossil fuel corporations and their supporters, who the scientists allege have deceived the American people about the risks of climate change, with the consequence of forestalling America’s response to reducing carbon emissions.

The Truth About Real-Life Dire Wolves

Physiologically, dire wolves were not a varied bunch, even between the sexes. Slightly larger teeth on the males are the only real sexual variation that anyone’s found. They hunted in packs, bringing down horses and bison. Good hunts might have brought down a giant ground sloth. During lean times they would have turned to scavenging carcasses—many dire wolves have worn or broken teeth from chewing bones—and eaten what smaller animals they could catch. That’s not really different from modern wolves.

The Colonial Origins of Conservation: The Disturbing History Behind US National Parks

*Editor’s Note* – Below is a teaser and a link to an article aimed at discovering the truth about “conservation,” it’s roots, and what it has done to the world. It’s also about the evolution of Environmentalism.

While many items in this article are true and based up truth, it is my opinion that the author, director of Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights, may rely on some wildlife management myths himself. However, much of what is written is worthy of reading and with most things we read and study today, we shouldn’t throw out the baby with the bath water.

Iconoclasm – questioning heroes and ideals, and even tearing them down – can be the most difficult thing. Many people root their attitudes and lives in narratives that they hold to be self-evidently true. So it’s obvious that changing conservation isn’t going to be an easy furrow to plow.
