Rate of Gun Homicide Has Dropped 49%

Did you know that? Apparently the majority of people believe it’s gone up. Why would that be the case?

Mentally Ill People Don’t Kill……But Don’t Go Look!

I know I have told this story many times before, so bear with me as there are some and new readers who haven’t heard it. True story. When my nephew was perhaps 3 or 4 years old, my brother was struggling to get him to eat his meals. On a day around noontime, I showed up at their house for a visit. My nephew didn’t want to eat his lunch and his father was being persistent that he did.

He gave the boy instructions about eating and the two of us retired to the living to discuss work. After about 5 minutes my nephew came into the living and excitedly announced, “Dad! I’m all done eating now! But don’t go look okay?”

In discussions about violent crimes with guns, guns are getting blamed – like they can kill someone all on their own. Not wanting to be included in any of these discussions are violent movies and video games and the data that shows that the common link between violent crimes and guns is drugs given to patients with mental problems.

For political and personal agenda reasons, Katherine Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services, was reported to have said, “The vast majority of Americans with a mental health condition are not violent. In fact, just 3% to 5% of violent crimes are committed by individuals who suffer from a serious mental illness.”

There’s a problem here with her statement BUT I am going to go look!

She states first that, “the vast majority of Americans with ‘A’ mental health ‘condition’, are not violent.” Please consider exactly what that sentence is saying and that she does not qualify what determines “a mental health condition.”

Now let’s look at the second sentence. She states that only 3%-5% of violent crimes are committed by those, “who suffer from ‘a serious mental illness’.”

The information provided here is incomplete and therefore extremely misleading. The intent here, I believe, is to force anyone hearing or reading her statement to believe that mentally ill people are not a factor in the number of violent crimes committed. But when you examine what she said, she may not have lied, but she wasn’t very honest either. She qualifies the 3%-5% as being those with a serious mental illness.

For my money, there’s a vast difference between a person with a mental condition and someone with a serious mental illness.

Day 23 – No Executive Orders

TOMFOOLERY!

I climbed a high mountain to see what I could see, and behold, I saw absolutely nothing! No 23 executive orders on gun control written and posted at the White House website.

Brainwashing displayed in living color! Among others, iconic singer Tony Bennett said that if the United States didn’t stop the violence, meaning more gun control, we might end up like Nazi Germany. You can’t make this stuff up.

Jackson Calls for Homeland Security (Brown Shirts?) to Patrol Chicago Streets

What will it take to wake sleeping Americans? I’m thinking there is little that will accomplish the task. The effort to make people robotic, brain dead, non functionaries has been so well accomplished, little seems to budge citizens away from their ipads, blackberries and big screen televisions.

While our media is still trying to keep a debate going in this country on gun control, the result of which is intended to be the tearing down of the one last remaining bastion against a tyrannical president and government, blinded eyes and non functioning brains fail to pay truthful notice to the blaring fact that Chicago is a violent hell hole; proof that any sort of real “gun control” only benefits criminals.

And yet, the cries coming out of the likes of THE Rev. Jesse Jackson, is a demand that President Obama deploy Homeland Security forces to Chicago to patrol the streets.

According to information provided by Freedom Outpost, the Patriot Act provided the police force for Homeland Security.

The 2005 USA Patriot Improvement and Reauthorization Act passed by Congress, however, established a “permanent police force” subject to the “supervision of the Secretary of Homeland Security.” According to the legislation, this new federal police force is empowered to “make arrests without warrant for any offense against the United States committed in their presence, or for any felony cognizable under the laws of the United States if they have reasonable grounds to believe that the person to be arrested has committed or is committing such felony.”

And here’s where much of the denial will come; from those bowing unconditionally to their government. The argument here is that there is so much gray area and non defined interpretations that the law will be abused and misused for ulterior motives. The government worshipers will robotically repeat, “Our government would never allow this to happen.” Recall if you will a comment made by media puppet Heraldo Riverra when he ignorantly exclaimed: Can you imagine that there are actually people who don’t trust the United States Government?

Realistically, all of this action is part of a larger, well planned event to accomplish many things and the people haven’t a clue. The plan wants a disarmed citizenry. The government, participants in the bigger plan, wants this because it is a hurdle that scares them from running roughshod over the masses. The plan wants violence. This government would like nothing more than for Americans to violently take to the streets in protest. They could then declare their “national emergency”, giving them the signed-into-law authority to not only finish taking away all your rights but to kill you because they can.

Think about it. Should President Obama opt to deploy Homeland Security “brown shirts” into Chicago in a false flag effort to stem a violent problem created by government, what would come next? Is this why it has been “leaked” that drone strikes on Americans is a necessary and good thing? If you fight back against your government, you are a terrorist.

This effort to promote collectivism, when spelled out, is nothing more than the employment of useful idiots to do the job the government doesn’t want to do themselves. Once accomplished, the useful idiots, nay, the “True Believers” become rapidly expendable.

A reader posted a quote yesterday which might just apply here today: “A man’s admiration for absolute government is proportionate to the contempt he feels for those around him.” —Alexis de Tocqueville
