Political Militancy No Way To Govern

David Trahan, executive director for the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine pens an article in the September 2018 edition of the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine News, called, “Political Militancy No Way to Govern.” I applaud his words and his effort. However…

The article mostly focuses on the efforts of three Maine legislators who have chosen to target the Kittery Trading Post to force them to stop selling “assault-style” weapons and to raise the age to 21 to be able to purchase what is called a “long gun.”

Of these three legislators and others nationally, Trahan writes: “For many reasons these Legislators, and others at the national level, like Maxine Waters, have stepped over a serious ethical line. As a past State Senator and Representative, I understand elected Legislators have exceptional power to change laws that could negatively impact a business or organization they don’t agree with – like Kittery Trading Post.

“When three Maine lawmakers and their followers decided to target one company, instead of introducing a policy change through legislation (a Legislator’s job) that would have rightly affected all similar Maine companies, they become “political militants”, not policy makers.”

Let’s turn the clock back just a wee bit shall we?

Last year Maine passed LD 557, a law that inequitably targets hunters and fishermen if they are caught destroying property. No other group or individuals are included in this doling out of unjustifiable increased punishment. I believe the correct terminology that represents such unlawful targeting of one group or individual over another is “unconstitutional animus.”

The Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine was a major promoter of this law which makes little sense when you consider the words of David Trahan against the three Maine legislators who he feels have “crossed a serious ethical line” by targeting Kittery Trading Post.

Perhaps Trahan, the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine, and the Maine Legislature went further in the destruction of due process than the three Maine legislators targeting Kittery Trading Post. What the three legislators did may have crossed a perceived ethical boundary, what Maine and the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine did was, in my opinion, a direct violation of individual rights and that of due process.

Simply taking the action of “policy change” have never guaranteed that passed laws are not in violation of a person’s rights. Such is the case involving LD 557.

My call is to the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine to seek to repeal LD 557, especially in view of the facts of the statement made in the article written by the executive director of the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine.

Passage of and the promotion of LD 557 was nothing more than just another form of political militancy, which we have read is “no way to govern.” SAM should practice what they preach.

Gun Protest: Who Said Totalitarians Had to Be Intelligent?

Protesters targeted the Kittery Trading Post in Kittery, Maine over the weekend seeking to get the store to stop selling “assault rifles” (whatever those are) and to limit the age of those wishing to purchase a rifle. As gutless totalitarians, many of the protesters don’t know which end of a rifle a bullet goes in and comes out but that didn’t stop them from displaying not only their ignorance of guns but of the Second Amendment – another example of people eager and willing to destroy all their remaining government-appropriated rights.

According to Maine Public, one protester said the Second Amendment was intended to protect muskets – uh huh! And another said, “I think if everyone wants to be entitled to a musket — fine.”

That’s about as brilliant as Susan Collins stating that Roe v. Wade was settled law but by her actions tells us the Second Amendment is not. BRILLIANT!!

If we were to use the same misguided totalitarian logic then: Everyone is “entitled” to say whatever they want so long as it is only those restricted words I want them to speak; How about everyone is limited to owning just a Toyota Prius – after all, you don’t NEED a bigger, better, car with more features, etc.; And we are protected from illegal searches and seizures unless the government decides otherwise or a group of protesters demand something else. This nonsense can go on forever but it is impossible to reason with misguided nuts who refuse to understand the truth about guns – or the truth about rights for that matter.

Recently we learned from a new study that in countries where guns are common, the rate of violent crime goes down and that guns are NOT the cause of violence – a lost society is. So then, why are we not protesting in support of a change in our society? Why are we not protesting to stop the violent music and video games? Why do we promote decadence in our society, dragging members of this culture into a cesspool of immoral behavior, lying, cheating, stealing, anger, hatred, etc.?

The answer is easy. These protesters have been brainwashed, propagandized, and made void of common sense reasoning (by design) and they actually believe what they are doing and saying regardless of truth. And if you talk with them, they will angrily tell you they hold the real truth – everything else is a lie.

A bit of A Clockwork Orange going on.

Judge Blocks the Killing of Members of Pack of Washington Wolves

As is ALWAYS the case, a judge has issued a temporary restraining order to stop the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) from removing some or all of the members of a wolf pack habituated to killing livestock in eastern Washington. The Center for Biological Diversity and Cascadia Wildlands immediately sued once they heard of WDFW’s intentions.

According to reports, Washington has “a minimum of 122 wolves in 22 packs, with 14 successful breeding pairs.” This is a far cry from any endangerment to the species. In addition, the actions of the pack of wolves in depredating on livestock meet all the requirements for lethal removal.

But what is most sad is that wolves have NEVER been endangered. All that exists are a group of selfish, misled, and perverted people who want wolves in everyone’s backyard. Wolves do not belong in human-settled landscapes for the very reasons that WDFW decided it was time that something is done to stop this pack from destroying livestock. There should be no reason whatsoever that any property owner has to sacrifice his or her property for the protection of any animal.

In addition, while the intentions of WDFW and other wildlife managers are mostly good, you cannot accomplish the stoppage of livestock depredation by culling only one or some of any pack. It’s a pack activity and unless all members are taken out, depredations will continue. That’s a fact whether we like it or not. It’s a matter of where the importance lies – protecting animals or taking away a person’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Wars have been fought over one nation wishing to take away property and rights from another.

Judges are owned by environmental groups who are owned by the government. That’s why none of this makes any sense.

Lyme Disease, Vaccinations, and Faith in Government

The New York Times has an article about Lyme disease. They claim that Lyme disease is “spreading fast” and asks why there is no vaccination against it. They also tell us that in 1998 a vaccine for Lyme was approved and released and subsequently removed from the shelves due to bad sales and numerous complaints and lawsuits about side effects, etc. Of course, the maker of the vaccine said there was no evidence that their vaccine was harmful in any way.

I was sent the link to the NYT article which came through a “teaser” posted on Instapundit. Reading the comments after the post is most telling.

First, the comments show us that the majority of people are ignorant about Lyme disease. Secondly, we can also see the results of many years of brainwashing and mind control in how people act and react to vaccines, disease, and trust or distrust in their government.

There have been many discussions about vaccinations. It is futile to attempt to have one of those discussions between two people – one who is a firm believer in the “progressive” advancement of health science and one who sees all vaccines as a form of chemical warfare.

This same attitude exists with many topics in our lives these days. It is a shame that people are incapable of making “informed” decisions due to the fact that our society is virtually void of truth and programmed to accept the “official” word and never question.

Money and greed drive the pharmaceutical industry. With their power, they can conjure up any “science” they want to prove or disprove anything. Couple that with a programmed society that loves to hate their government but demands “protection” against all boogie men, and we have a worse case scenario – in other words, we don’t know what government is doing. They could be deliberately killing us and we wouldn’t know nor would we care.

That’s but one side of the entire vaccine equation.

Personally, I don’t care if there are millions of vaccines created for everything from polio to hiccups. The real issue for me is when the government mandates the taking of vaccines or any chemicals for that matter.

It is one thing to ask where the vaccine is for Lyme disease. It is quite another when any government requires that anybody will have that vaccine regardless of possible severe side effects, including death. It should be my choice.

The system we live in is a system we all contributed to its existence. That system demands drugs and chemicals as part of our daily consumption. You should be free to consume all of everything if that is what you desire. Just don’t demand that I be forced to join your drug party.

When Man-gODS Determine Risk Protection

Florida is one of the fascist states of America who passed a law that allows law enforcement and the courts to determine when someone might be a risk to themselves and others. As part of that law, central government’s police (police state) for no reason other than someone made a determination will enter your home or violate your person and confiscate your gun(s).

According to Guns America, Pinellas County in western Florida has assembled a 5-man confiscation team at the Sheriff’s Office.

What could possibly go wrong?

But they and nearly every American alive today have it ALL wrong. The Pinellas County Sheriff is quoted as saying, “It’s a constitutional right to bear arms and when you are asking the court to deprive somebody of that right we need to make sure we are making good decisions, right decisions and the circumstances warrant it.”

Not very reassuring…unless you are a fascist or a totalitarian in which case you are eager to give up all your freedoms in order to further empower the central government, which, by the way, doesn’t give one iota about your freedoms or rights.

This is insanity!

In case you have forgotten…and most have…the Second Amendment reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

There is nothing in there about risk protection orders and other “reasonable” amendments to a God-given right to self-protection. This government and the people in it are so perverted in all sense of common sense and decency have it all backward. When it comes to murdering babies, the law is “settled.” When it comes to a right, unquestionably defined within the Constitution, the law is unsettled and ever-changing to meet the growing power grabbing of a fascist government (Fascism ALWAYS precedes communism.)

But don’t misunderstand. This Risk Protection Order doesn’t just target the Second Amendment. Florida already has attacked so-called free speech – something America abandoned several years ago and nobody has caught on yet.

So, if a sheriff and/or a judge somewhere doesn’t like what you said and thinks that statement is putting SOMEONE or SOMETHING “at risk” then all rights are abandon and any guns will be confiscated…by brute force evidently. Bring in the Confiscation Team and let’s kick some ass!

One attorney is so ignorant of a person’s right to self-protection that in her defense of a client labeled “at risk” because a judge didn’t like what they said, believes the law needs to rewritten so that it only targets gun owners. Who needs enemies when you have stupid lawyers?

There is no hope!

The Pinellas County Sheriff says “he understands the constitutional rights that are at stake here.” NO HE DOESN’T!! He understands nothing. All he understands is that as head of a law enforcement organization that exists within a police state, he is eager to have more and more power to knock the people down and tread on them.

These risk protection orders are nothing but smoke and mirrors because this perverted, immoral society does not want to address the reasons why sick people desire to go out and kill other people.

There is no hope!

And we can also thank the many faux Second Amendment groups who have pushed for this fascist rule. May they have the new laws shoved where the sun doesn’t shine.

An Open Letter About the Insanity of Wolf Protection Over Livelihoods

The Merciful Bullet

By Len McIrvin, Partner Diamond M Ranch Laurier, WA 99146

As I looked into the dark, pain filled, pleading eyes of the calf lying on the ground in a dense thicket, many thoughts flashed through my mind. This had been a strong, healthy heifer calf (in human terms, she would have been a 5 or 6 year old girl-halfway between birth and puberty, with-hopefully-her whole life ahead of her)
As I looked at the calf’s ripped and torn, blood-soaked body; with her shoulder ripped from it’s joint, her hindquarters and her back and upper leg deeply punctured and lacerated with dozens of wolf bites – I had to ask myself, “Why?” Why is this becoming a common place event for cattlemen and sheepmen all over the West as they see their herds ravaged by wolves?
The mother cow mournfully bellows to her unmoving, fatally wounded calf. Her udder is swollen with milk but is never again to be suckled by her baby. Showing her love and concern, the mother cow stands watch over her calf all day long; refusing to leave the area where it was attacked by wolves. Her grief-stricken cries haunt me as she continues to call to her dying baby.
Once again I ask myself “Why?” Why this terrible waste to satisfy the desire of a few people who just hope to hear a wolf howl?
I couldn’t help but think “Why” once again as the Fish and Wildlife Officer asked my grandson if he could dispatch the victim, stating that he would then transport the body to the dump. What a waste of a healthy, young calf to end up in that place where she will rot or be eaten by scavengers.
I looked again at those dark, pain filled, and pleading eyes of the calf as my grandson compassionately placed the Merciful Bullet between them. Even though this is an experience I have lived through over 100 times, I still cannot accept this merciless killing of our herd by wolves.

Wolves kill whatever they want to kill, but death by wolves is slow, and horrible, and a long time coming. In the case of this calf, she could have lived for days, or lived until the wolves came back and started eating her alive. With tears in my eyes, I am asking all the good friends, neighbors, and citizens in our area, state, and nation for help in ending this situation.
God has said He put man on earth to have dominion over the animals. For those of you who believe there is a Lord, you must assume this responsibility and demand that this terrible carnage ends and that our predators are managed to the point that our herds and flocks, our pets, and our wonderful herds of game animals can survive.
There are only 3 factors involved in controlling the population density of wolves:
1. The first factor is disease and parasites, which invariably come when wolf population reaches its saturation point. (these are transmittable to humans)
2. The second factor is starvation. The starvation factor kicks in at the point when there is no food source available. At this point, they become cannibalistic and start eating each other, thereby controlling their own population.
3. The third factor and the most viable and effective population control of wolves is man; but in today’s political correctness, man has been taken out of the equation. This is the scenario we are facing today.
As a cattleman who has been involved with cattle all my life-nearly 3/4 of a century, I am asking for your help as we deal with the consequences of an exploding wolf population. Local control is the only answer. Let’s do everything possible to assure that each County Sherriff has complete control and is totally in charge of all the wolf predation that affects his citizens and their property.

Letter to Montana Governor: What Happens With “Reasonable” Restrictions on First Amendment

From Gary Marbut, President of the Montana Shooting Sports Association:

Governor Steve Bullock
Helena, Montana
Dear Governor Bullock,
Just like you “support” the Second Amendment, we support the First Amendment, but as with you and the Second, we support the First Amendment with reasonable and commonsense restrictions.
Because of these commonsense restrictions, you are no longer allowed to speak on government property, including within 1,000 feet of schools and buildings occupied by any level of government.  That would be just too dangerous.  You are also not allowed to speak in any other public place unless you have a government permit to do so.  Such a permit will only be granted if you have satisfactorily completed an approved training course about how to comply with writing and speech restrictions – how to use your rights safely.
You are no longer allowed to use amplification to enhance your speech, as such amplification is considered to be “high capacity” or “assault speech.”  No microphones.  You are no longer allowed to use any electronic means to write, record, or transmit your speech, since those mechanisms were not yet invented when the First Amendment was ratified.  Being a smart and capable guy, we’re sure you can get by with a pen made from a turkey feather and the volume and reach of your natural voice.
Another commonsense restriction will be what you may write or talk about.  We will have a committee available to review any proposed writing or proposed speech from you, in advance.  This committee will research your past writings and speech, and the proposed writing or speech, looking for any abuse or history of abuse.  If there is any such abuse or history, the committee will not approve your writing or speech.  If you attempt to write or speak without this advanced approval, you may be prosecuted for a federal crime, bankrupted with legal costs, put in a federal prison, and lose all of your rights.  Oh, by the way, Republicans will appoint this review committee.
Oh, and there will be a ten-day waiting period after your writing or speech has been approved by the committee before you will be allowed to share the writing with others or deliver the speech.  You may have composed the writing or speech in a moment of passion, and you may reconsider your intent or language after you’ve had a few days to cool down.
You will be allowed to speak to one person at a time, in a private setting, as long as you do not disturb others and the content of your speech is approved in advance.  And, you will be allowed to write as much as you want, as long as the writing is with a quill pen, is approved in advance by the committee, is reproduced only manually, and is carried only by foot or horse power, all following the ten-day cooling down period.  We will allow so much, for now, because we fully support your First Amendment rights and because we do not wish to be unduly restrictive.
We hope you understand that these commonsense restrictions are best for everyone, for the public good.  You aren’t opposed to the public good and everyone, are you?
If these commonsense restrictions don’t solve whatever problems may be apparent or imagined, we will need to look at other possible restrictions.  We don’t really want to take away your First Amendment, but everyone demands that we solve the terrible problem of First Amendment abuse and solve it now.  Surely we must all bow to the majority of public opinion in this, don’t you agree?
Sincerely yours,
The Public

DHS Making List, Checking Twice. Are You One It? Do You Even Care?

While millions of insane Americans can’t get through one day without obsessing about whether or not it is a crime for the President or Congress for that matter, to “mislead” the Media or the Public the fascist bastards in Washington, including Donald Trump and HIS Department of Homeland Security (DHS), have decided that they “need,” in order “to protect and enhance the resilience of the nation’s physical and cyberinfrastructure,” to compile a list of “journalists, editors, correspondents, social media influencers, bloggers etc.” and to “monitor” it 24/7.

And there are only crickets to be heard!

As there were crickets in 2013 when Congress, in the National Defense Authorization Act repealed the prohibition on the president and Congress to intentionally lie and mislead anyone they so chose including the American people. And now some want death to Trump because he “misleads” the Media and the Public. If they only knew!

Necessary and Proper!

Not only does the administration, including Congress, of this private corporation, the United States, mislead, propagandize, and outright lie to the American servitude, but their henchmen, those lying bastard lawyers and advisors who know the laws and they know what Government can and can’t do, intentionally lie to all of us telling us something different…and we believe it because we know no better.

Recall, the Patriot Act was a “necessary” thing in order to enhance our national security. BULLSHIT! But millions of misled, lied-to, blinded, ignorant “CONservatives” took the bait, hook, line, and sinker, and did the bidding for the fascist government.

Here we are today, at a time when blinded, propagandized, ignorant millions of American’s who think Donald Trump is just the cat’s meow, along with his eager and cryptic chiseling away of what is left of any such thing as a Second Amendment right, now aims to completely violate our basic right to privacy under the false guise of the need to enhance and protect something wordsmiths have coined as “public and cyberinfrastructure.”

I’ll take a dozen, thank you.

For years I have heard comments from people whenever I mention that this fascist government and their enablers like Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc. has been and continues to archive and monitor everything we do, including Online and with our cell phones, GPS, in-car computers, appliances, electronics, laptops, tablets, “eye” pads, say, “I got nothing to hide.”

Is that reason enough to be complacent which in turns causes you to be an enabler? Do you love your servitude? Do you hate having rights and freedom? Evidently, but let’s impeach Trump because he’s a lying bastard…YEAH! Let’s enact some more of those “reasonable” restrictions on our basic, inalienable rights because it’s necessary. YEAH!

You may think you have nothing to hide, but that is completely your perspective. The Government’s perspective is always different…and you trust your Government? I don’t…in case you haven’t been paying attention.

Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge says this fact is “extremely creepy.” It is much more than that. Whether you THINK you have nothing to hide or not, this is a violation of one of life’s most basic rights. How much farther are we willing to allow this tyrannical government to destroy us? Evidently a lot further.

Hang on.

And while you continue to obsess on all the lies we are being told of what Trump has done that he promised and whether or not he should be impeached because he “misleads,”

DON’T GO LOOK!!

It’s just too difficult a thing to do to find the truth. Show me the money!

What If The Second Amendment Was Repealed?

“What would that be like, the repeal of the Second Amendment? Would it markedly transform our way of life? Would acts of unspeakable violence cease? Would civility and compassion return in our deeply divided country and troubled culture? Would discipline of children return to homes? Would there cease to be drug use and mentally troubled individuals? Would there be a return to moral values in a country that is so adrift? Would sex and violence stop being promoted in television, movies and video games? Would our citizenry be held accountable for its own behavior? Would there truly be consequences for lawlessness and would the rule of law mean something?”<<<Read More>>>

Springfield Armory Severs Ties With Dick’s Sporting Goods and Field and Stream

Sometimes the exercise of one right against another right can become quite costly. I also wasn’t aware that Dick’s and Field and Stream were affiliated. Too bad for Field and Stream.

“Springfield Armory is severing ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, in response to their hiring a group for anti-Second Amendment lobbying.”<<<Read More>>>
