Will YOU Save Freedom? Catch The Tea Party Wave


"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."

Much ado about nothing has been made of the first stanza of the 2nd Amendment by anti-gun people.
A well regulated (well trained and well armed) militia (every man and or woman who is physically able and also a citizen), being necessary to to the security of a free state, (the right to protect your freedoms, your property, your safety, your rights, state's rights), the right of the people to keep and bear arms, (notice it says the right of the PEOPLE, not the militia), shall NOT be infringed. (not by the Federal Government, not by State's Government, not by ANYONE unless convicted of a felonious crime by a court of law).

"No Free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." (Thomas Jefferson, Proposal Virginia Constitution)
"A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves...and include all men capable of bearing arms." (Richard Henry Lee)
" disarm the people - that was the best and most effectual way to enslave them." (George Mason)
"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." (James Madison, The Federalist Papers #46 at 243-244)

This is also confirmed in the Freedman's Act of 1866, where Congress affirmed that newly freed slaves'  right to keep and bear arms could not be infringed by the several states.  If Americans did not have the right to keep and bear arms, and if this did not include the states, why would Congress confirm that ex-slaves' rights could not be infringed by the states in the Freedman's Act?

Which arms can the People own?   According to both George Mason and James Madison;
"The People shall have arms equivalent to that of what any infantryman can carry on his person."

Obama's latest attack on gun rights

By Jason Richards

There is one promise President Obama made he really wants to keep: the one he made at Brady Center to pursue gun control ‘under the radar.‘

The AR-15 is America's most popular sporting rifle. The administration has been falsely characterizing it as an "automatic" firearm and an "assault" weapon. It has been also been demonized after the Sandy Hook shootings. Bans on it and other so-called "assault weapons" have been attempted from every possible angle.

The Obama Administration having its sights on the 2nd Amendment is using backdoor regulations to ban the sale, import and manufacture of the most affordable ammunition for the AR-15 using the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE).

This is being sold on the dubious pretext that it is "armor piercing" and a threat to law enforcement, while the AR-15 its common 5.56 mm ammo (.223 is also used) are not even remotely the most deadly weapons in the hands of citizen gun owners. Yet the bans and restrictions are centered around the perception that is a ‘military weapon best used in war, not on the streets of America...'

Moreover, justifying 5.56 mm ammo for a ban has proven to be a ridiculous game of semantics, with the technical rationale a paper-thin see-through farce as Forbes writes:

Now, to be as nitpicky as the law, the M855 ball ammunition the ATF wants to ban as "armor piercing" doesn't have a core made of the metals listed in what legally makes a bullet "armor piercing." The M855 actually has a lead core with a steel tip. Also, the M855 is traditionally a rifle cartridge and the ban only covers handgun ammunition.

The DOJ argues this doesn't stop them because the law stipulates they can ban a bullet that "may be used in a handgun." And, after all, any cartridge may be used in a handgun.The ban isn't absolute, but it puts serious pressure on gun owners and definitely infringes on the right to keep and bear arms.

So you can still legally own it if you already have it... but no one can import it, sell it, or even produce it.

That's of course if you can find and it and buy it before the ban takes effect. Prices have already been soaring on this ammo, and ammo in general, given the unrelenting assault on the 2nd Amendment by Obama and his allies.

It is clear that Obama's "lame duck" years aren't toothless soft power, but an opportunity for stealth attacks. Defied by Congress and much of the public, Obama has been emboldened in his actions knowing that there is little that can or will hold him accountable.

A president that is willing to use executive actions, executive orders and his trusty ‘pen and phone' to make unilateral legislation is even more dangerous in making quiet actions little covered by the media and mostly noticed only by niche groups of citizens.

The lesson here remains eternal vigilance, and a reminder never to turn your back on a "lame duck" president in the age of executive actions and rule by agency.

Saty safe. Stay prepared.

 SAF Authorizes Court Action If .223 Ammo Ban Is Implemented


SAF Authorizes Court Action If .223

Ammo Ban Is Implemented

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation has authorized court action if the proposed ban on .223-caliber ammunition is implemented by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the foundation’s general counsel has warned in a letter to BATFE Director B. Todd Jones.

Writing for SAF, general counsel Miko Tempski tells Jones, “This proposal is just an attempt to limit firearms rights because the President’s other such attempts have been blocked through constitutional checks and balances on his power.

“Should the BATFE lawlessly proceed on this path,” Tempski warns, “SAF intends to call on those checks and balances to stop the Administration’s executive overreach again.”

Tempski’s three-page letter dissects the BATFE proposal, noting repeatedly that M855 ammunition at the center of this controversy “is not armor piercing pursuant to the definition in the statute.” The federal provisions requires that a cartridge fire a “full jacketed projectile large than .22-caliber designed and intended for use in a handgun…,” or to otherwise be fit for use in a handgun and have a core “entirely constructed” form a specific list of non-lead metals to be prohibited.

Tempski explained that the M855 round does not meet either of these criteria. He said the first definition, “fails immediately as the 5.56 x 45 mm round is not designed and intended for use in a handgun,” and he questioned the ATF’s honesty with regard to the second definition, noting that a “small tip of steel making up less than 1/6th of the projectile cannot be used to claim the bullet or its core are “entirely” steel.

“The proposed framework,” he writes, “intends to define the intended purpose of ammunition based on the availability of certain types of handguns made for it. Such a circular definition is highly illogical in any context.”

California Sheriffs Attack Carry License Applicants in AB 1134

Earlier today, sources confirmed that California's sheriffs, through their California State Sheriffs' Association, are behind the anti-CCW Assembly Bill 1134.

AB 1134 is an outright attack on the carry license ("CCW") application process, a new burden on applicants, and a blatant attempt to overturn the Los Angeles Superior Court's decision in Lu v. Baca (currently on appeal) and the longstanding precedent of Salute v. Pitchess.

AB 1134 would legislatively remove the duty of sheriffs to accept and process applications.

Under AB 1134, any sheriff could -- by nothing more than a wink-nod agreement with a police chief of a city in their county -- institute a system by which all carry license applicants would have to apply with that police chief --and that police chief only.

AB 1134 is a direct assault on California's carry license system....and it's scheduled to be heard on April 7!

Please fight with FPC and OPPOSE AB 1134!

How to OPPOSE AB 1134:


(1)   Sign our Take Action letter of opposition to AB 1134 at FPC

(2)   Call and/or write your sheriff's office and urge them to OPPOSE Assemblymember Stone's AB 1134 through their lobbying arm, California State Sheriff's Association.

Upcoming Legislative Hearings:

April 7: Assembly Public Safety Committee

QUIRK, Chair 9 a.m. - State Capitol, Room 126

  • AB 1134 (OPPOSE)This bill would allow sheriffs to force carry license applicants in their county to apply to the chief of police of a city in that county

Why You Should Join FPC and Support “Protecting Liberty”

As you might already be aware, Firearms Policy Coalition is a proud supporter of Billy Johnson’s Protecting Liberty film project. We’re even going to donate up to $10 for every new and renewal FPC membership through April 29 to help fund the documentary’s production.

Our team is absolutely committed to Billy and his important work because we believe that Protecting Liberty is going to be a difference-maker in our fight to defend your fundamental, individual Second Amendment gun rights.

Don’t just take our word for it. Watch this video to hear Billy explain why he’s making such a huge personal commitment to get this done...

More than 10 lawsuits need your immediate support

There are no fewer than 10 critically-important lawsuits that we'll need to brief in the coming weeks to defend your Second Amendment gun rights.

Each of these cases will shape the future of your Constitutional rights. Each of these cases could end up being decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. And each of these cases need your full, 100% backing and support.

Here's the math: It takes the full annual membership dues of about 2,000 FPC Official Members to fund a single federal court brief, and about 20,000 new members to fund another major gun rights case.

That's why we need you to help us fund our legal efforts by joining FPC today.

Quality legal work is expensive. Complicated and time-consuming legal efforts cost thousands of dollars -- sometimes well into the tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. But we have no choice other than to commit our full force and attention to doing whatever it takes to secure your gun rights.

We can't just sit on the sidelines and watch billionaire-funded anti-gun groups like Bloomberg's Moms Demand Action unravel the Second Amendment....and neither can you.

We want the strongest possible arguments in front of the judges that will decide these history-making cases. Don't you?

Become an FPC Official Member for only $10

Having your gun rights firmly secured in case law or watching them slip away could come down to your decision to join the FPC team as an official member.

Please don't let the outrageous and intellectually dishonest legal filings by anti-gun groups like the Brady Campaign go unopposed in these gun rights lawsuits.

We need our courts to have a full understanding of the text, history, and tradition of the TRUE Second Amendment -- not the "collectivist" approach that incapacitated our fundamental, individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms for far too long.

Please, make sure you and all of your pro-gun family and friends areFPC Official Members and help us fight to win.

The full California Assembly has passed AB 1134 (Stone) on to the Senate, where it will be assigned to the Senate Public Safety Committee for a hearing.

It is very important that the Senate Public Safety Committee hears from you on AB 1134. Otherwise, Assemblyman Stone's anti-CCW bill will continue to move forward and give California licensing authorities another way to "hide the ball" with your carry license applications!

How to OPPOSE AB 1134:


1.   Sign our Take Action letter of opposition to AB 1134 at FPC.

From Stewart Rhodes- Oath Keepers

One of the reasons I started this organization is because of what I saw happen during Hurricane Katrina, where active duty police and military directly violated the right of the people to keep and bear arms by confiscating the weapons of law abiding citizens who were simply trying to defend themselves.  Sadly, even during a Republican administration, on President Bush's watch, those who swore an oath to defend the Constitution violated it wholesale by that egregious disarming of the citizens of New Orleans.  That was a serious wake-up call for those of us who take our oath seriously.  

And that is why the very first order that we declare we will not obey - number one on our list - is: 

1. We will NOT obey any order to disarm the American people.

You can read the full declaration of orders we will not obey here LINK

 You can watch the video version here.   LINK (or insert video). 

I invite you to explore our main site, at and also our sister project   However, one of the best ways to get to know what we are about is to also watch the following videos: 

Thankfully there were some during Katrina that DID NOT obey those orders, and did not participate in the disarmament of the people: 

Watch the Video Interview Here   

We know that wholesale gun confiscation happened during Hurricane Katrina.  We watched the Chief of Police of New Orleans declare on national television that "no one [no private citizen] will be able to be armed, we're going to take all the weapons."  We watched an old lady

being tackled in her own kitchen and disarmed.

In fact, that atrocious event was one of the reasons I started Oath Keepers.  But I also knew, from my service as an Army paratrooper, that there are men and women of courage, honor, and integrity in the military who would refuse to obey such orders.  My goal with Oath Keepers is simply to increase their numbers and harden their resolve.   But when it came to Katrina, we did not have concrete proof that some said no - until now.


A Stand-Up Example from Katrina Emerges

On Friday May 14, 2010, I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Staff Sergeant (SSG) Joshua L. May of the Utah National Guard who told me how he, along with the other men in his military intelligence unit, refused to participate in any gun confiscation while deployed to assist during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

I finally discovered SSG May and his story only because after a speech I gave in Logan Utah on May 13, 2010, a local resident, Farley Anderson, walked up and told me about what SSG May had done.  Upon hearing of it, I knew I just had to talk to him, so I had Mr. Anderson track down SSG May's number and I called him at 11pm and invited him to breakfast the next morning.  Until that night, SSG May hadn't even heard of Oath Keepers (which is ironic since he is a shining example of an oath keeper).   We met for the first time that next morning, Friday, May 14, 2010.   During breakfast, SSG May told me his story, and then I asked him if we could go outside and do a video interview in the restaurant parking lot.  He agreed that his story needed to be told and the above video is the result.

Watch this video interview with Bill O'Reilly which shows the mentality we need to overcome -  that the Constitution can be set aside during emergencies.  Shockingly, in this interview with Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes, O'Reilly DEFENDED the confiscation of guns during Katrina and called our hard stand in defense of the Second Amendment an "extreme" position.

East German Army Officer (and now American Oath Keeper!) Tells How the East German Military Refused Unlawful Orders to Crush Protests, Stood Down, and Led to the Fall of the Berlin Wall.


In this remarkable interview, Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes speaks with Gunter Spens, now a member of Texas Oath Keepers, who was a Lieutenant Colonel in the East German Army when communism collapsed and the Berlin Wall came down in 1989.  LTC Spens tells how the East German military refused unlawful orders given by the Communist Party to crush peaceful mass protests and simply stood down, staying on the base.  Without the support of the military, the communist party and their Stasi secret police were powerless and could no longer oppress the people. As we have always said, no government on earth can oppress the people without the support of the military, and a government's secret police, however feared they had been in the past, cannot stand against the mass of the people when the military withdraws its support.  In East Germany, once the military refused orders to stop the mass protests on November 7, 1989, Stasi secret police knew the gig was up and stripped off their uniforms, trying to melt into crowds or pretending to be normal soldiers.  Two days later, the Berlin Wall fell.  LTC Spens describes what it was like to live under Communism, where they had a constitution on paper, but not in reality because the communist party ran everything and through its secret police, the Stasi, kept everyone under its thumb.


He describes how back in 1968, during the Prague Spring in Czechoslovakia ( , some East German military officers refused to invade Czechoslovakia because it violated their oath, which was to defend the Constitution and the people of East Germany, and their Army regulations also prohibited violations of the international laws of war, and they were convinced that invading Czechoslovakia was not in defense of the nation, and was in violation of international law.  Unfortunately, at that time the Communist Party was so strong, and had such a lock down on the military and all of society, that those brave officers were simply "disappeared" as happened to millions under Communism.

This vote was today (back in March). No Republicans, 2 Independents (AKA: Moderates)voted for it.




HOORAY – A 53-46 vote

The U.N. Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps of most interest is point number 11. It: “CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION and DISARMAMENT of all UN countries”.

By a 53-46 vote - The U.S. Senate voted against the U.N. resolution. HOORAY.

This is that brief, glorious moment in history when everyone stands around...reloading.

Now, Which 46 Senators Voted to Destroy Us? Well, let their names become known ! See below . If you vote in one of the states listed with these 46 “legis..traitors”… vote against them.

In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The Statement of Purpose from the Senate Bill reads: "To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty." The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry, now get this, on all private guns and ammo.

Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.

Here are the 46 senators who voted to give your rights to the U.N.:


Baldwin (D-WI)

South Carolina Permitless Carry Passes House 90-18

By Dean Weingarten

Gov Nikki Haley South CarolinaSouth Carolina Permitless Carry Passes House 90-18, will Gov Nikki Haley South Carolina sign it?
Dean WeingartenDean Weingarten

Arizona – -( Constitutional Carry is gaining momentum in the states.

Kansas recently passed legislation making it the sixth state to have constitutional carry (where people who may legally own guns have the right to carry them openly or concealed).  Mississippi passed a bill characterized as 90% constitutional carry, and a bill is pending in Maine that has majority support in the legislature, and likely support of the governor.

The South Carolina bill, H3025, recently passed the second read in the South Carolina House, 90-18.   It still has to pass a third read, but amendments on the third read are required to be unanimous.  From the facebook page of one of the legislators who authored the amendment:

Please join me in saying thank you to the 90 members of the South Carolina House of Representatives who today, by a vote of 90 to 18, gave second reading to the Clemmons, Yow, Hixon South Carolina Second Amendment Empowerment Act (H3025), with an amendment by Rep Mike Pitts and myself to authorize permitless concealed carry by every South Carolinian who can legally purchase a handgun! The bill, as now amended, allows SC CWP holders to carry in 27 states (instead of the current 20) Including GA and opens the door to recognizing every state’s CWP. Additionally, the amendment authorizes every law abiding South Carolinian who can legally purchase a firearm, to carry it concealed without a permit! The bill awaits third reading in the House next Tuesday and then passes to the Senate for consideration. Thank you to every member of the SC House who supports the Second Amendment!

This is a permitless carry bill instead of a constitutional carry bill, because it would allow concealed carry without a permit, but not open carry.  The bill also expands reciprocity to all other states’ concealed carry permits.  South Carolina is one of only six states that prohibit open carry.   It is likely that Texas will be removed from that short list this year.  From the bill:

(A)    It is unlawful for anyone to carry about the person any handgun, whether concealed or not, except as follows, unless otherwise specifically prohibited by law:with the intent to use the handgun unlawfully against another person. The intent to use a handgun unlawfully against another person shall not be inferred from the mere possession, carrying, or concealment of the handgun, whether it is loaded or unloaded.

(B)    No person shall carry a handgun off of any real property the person occupies as a resident, owner, or lessee if the person is under twenty-one years of age or carries the handgun in a manner that openly exposes it to common observation, with the following exceptions:

Governor Haley said that she would sign a constitutional carry bill, so she would presumably sign a partial reform such as this one.   From a

 — S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley said Tuesday that she backs a proposal that would make it legal for most South Carolinians to carry guns – concealed or in the open – without a permit or the training that the state currently requires.

It is unknown  if the bill will be able to survive legislative gymnastics in the Senate.  Constitutional carry has been introduced in  previous years by State Senator Lee Bright, R-Spartanburg, but has been killed in committee, then, and this year, by Senator Larry Martin R-Pickens.   By being passed in the house, it might be possible to circumvent the legislative power of Martin and his committee.   It might not be necessary, as the bill does not allow open carry, which offends Senator Martin.    From WLTX about the previous constitutional carry bill:

“You can carry a weapon openly if this bill is adopted and I’m offended by that,” said committee chair Sen. Larry Martin (R-Pickens).

If the bill goes to Martin’s committee, and he strips out the permitless carry provision, and then passes the bill, it would go to the House for concurrence; if the House disagrees, then the bill could go to a conference committee.   Members of the conference committee are appointed by the speaker of the House to a committee for the entire biennium. I do not know if the same applies to the Senate.

If the Senate insists upon its amendment, a message is sent to the House listing the names of three Senators appointed to a conference committee. The Speaker of the House then appoints three members of the House to a conference committee. The six members meet and try to reach an agreement. If they agree, their report is sent to both bodies for adoption.

This would allow the legislature to ‘work around’ a recalcitrant committee chairman.   That could happen if the leaders of the Senate and House both support the bill.

If the bill passes and is signed into law, it will create a new category of state; one where you do not need a permit to carry concealed, but are not allowed to carry openly.

Lets call it “Permitless Carry”

c2014 by Dean Weingarten: Permission to share is granted when this notice is included.Link to Gun Watch

About Dean Weingarten;

Dean Weingarten has been a peace officer, a military officer, was on the University of Wisconsin Pistol Team for four years, and was first certified to teach firearms safety in 1973. He taught the Arizona concealed carry course for fifteen years until the goal of constitutional carry was attained. He has degrees in meteorology and mining engineering, and recently retired from the Department of Defense after a 30 year career in Army Research, Development, Testing, and Evaluation.

We will soon hear the clamor for “gun controls” or even confiscation after the horrific massacre in Paris.

Let’s review some facts:
Terrorists and other mass murderers tend to attack unarmed groups of people in confined spaces where it is hard for them to escape, for example, in homes, restaurants, movie theaters, schools, concert halls, and sports stadiums. In these situations, people have difficulty fleeing and for the terrorist or mass murderer. It is like ‘shooting fish in a barrel.’ In Paris, two (2) gunmen killed 89 of the 100 hostages held in the concert hall before the police arrived and forced the terrorists to set off their suicide vests!
If the victims are able to call 911, at best, it will take the police at least ten (10) to twenty (20) minutes to arrive. In an attack on a large school or college campus, it might take a similar amount of time for the campus police to figure out what is happening, where it is happening and to travel to the location.
Therefore, in these type of venues, the terrorists and mass murderers are able to inflict the greatest number of casualties in the shortest period of time.
To bring this closer to home, imagine that you left your wife and kids in your house unarmed. What are they supposed to do for the ten (10) to twenty (20) minutes after an armed home invasion until the police arrive, ASSUMING they have time to call 911? How are they supposed to defend themselves?

So, what is the solution to the problem?

As Wayne Pierre, with the NRA, has correctly stated: “The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun.” That is why the police, members of the military and most security guards carry guns and are usually able to stop terrorist and mass murder attacks AFTER THEY ARRIVE ON THE SCENE.

For adequate safety in any unarmed gathering of people in these types of venues, there should be roughly one (1) to ten (10) percent of the group who are armed security “guards,” depending on the size of the group, i.e., the higher percentage in the smaller group.
Obviously, this number of paid armed guards would be prohibitively expensive and not practical.
If the citizens of the United States were allowed and encouraged to open carry or concealed carry firearms at their own discretion, I believe that these percentages of armed “guards” would be met or exceeded at most events. In other words, an informal volunteer group of civilian armed “guards.”
This would have the effect of minimizing the casualties before the police or military arrive. In fact, because of the number of people who would be armed in any group, the cross fire opportunities would probably limit the terrorists or mass murderers to only a very few rounds.
The Left will howl with anguish that this will bring back the Wild West with a horrendous number of shootings and deaths.

There are 44 states where it is currently legal to open carry handguns! That is 88% of all states! Thirteen (13) of these require a permit to do so; however. Note: Texas just rescinded their 140 year old law prohibiting open carry this year.

Five (5) states and the District of Columbia currently prohibit open carry of handguns.. Logic would suggest that they should have the fewest gun murders per 100,000 population, right? Wrong! Their ranking among all states for the number of gun murders per 100,000 population is: District of Columbia #1, South Carolina #5, Florida #9, California #14, Illinois #22, and New York #25. All of these states rank within the top 25 among all states with the highest number of gun murders per 100,000 population. It should be noted that the District of Columbia, which is widely considered to have the strictest gun laws in the nation, ranked #1, with a gun murder rate more than twice the second highest state, Louisiana.

In the United States, there are 112.6 guns per 100 residents, ranking #1 among all countries. Serbia and Yemen are the next two highest countries, which combined have just a shade more guns per 100 residents than the United States. So, logically, the United States must have more firearm related deaths than any other country per 100,000 population, right? Wrong! The United States has less firearm related deaths than: Honduras, Venezuela, El Salvador, Jamaica, Swaziland, Guatemala, Columbia, South Africa, Brazil, Panama, Uruguay, and Mexico! And, there are more guns per 100 residents in the United States, than any other country, so most gun owners in America are responsible with their firearms.

The left believes that it would be possible to keep eight (8) AK-47 machine guns out of the hands of eight (8) Syrian terrorists in a country the size of France with 66 million in population (the size and scope of the latest terrorist attack in Paris) or the United States with 321 million in population! We sure have not had much success in stopping the flow of illegal drugs into this country, have we? Is it reasonable to expect that we could stop the flow of illegal firearms into the Country, if we can’t stop drugs? Or, illegal immigration? No! Therefore, if we confiscated all of the guns legally owned by United States citizens, only the terrorists, mass murderers and criminals would own guns and the ordinary citizens would have no way of defending themselves as outlined in the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

Personally, I would much rather be in a group of armed Americans facing Islamic terrorists than in a group of defenseless, unarmed Americans. Wouldn’t you?

There are eerie similarities to the development of ISIS and the growth of the Nazi’s prior to WWII! So, we need to take the ISIS terrorist threat seriously and implement common sense measures to increase or improve the defense of the citizens of this Country.

The small country of Israel requires that all citizens receive military training and serve on active duty. Maybe the United States should do something like this, as well on a smaller scale until the threat of radical Islam is neutralized.

Where am I going wrong?

What do you think? I would REALLY like to hear from you.

“consequently, that the ultimate right of the parties to the Constitution (i.e. the States), to judge whether the compact has been dangerously violated, must extend to violations by one delegated authority as well as by another--by the judiciary as well as by the executive, or the legislature.” Virginia Assembly Report 1800, James Madison. 

If a nation can't define its boundaries, who comes in and on what terms, then it can't sustain itself culturally, financially, politically, morally and with security.  It's not a nation.- G. Miller

(16 AM JUR 2D Sec. 178, 256.) Therefore all persons are presumed to be Lawyers.- Randy Due (illegally klidnapped by FBI and detained) 

A federal government which does not derive its lawful and limited authority from the Constitution of the United States is by definition an occupation government and criminal regime.  It’s authority is null and void and no one is bound by any rule of law to obey it.  --Donald L. Cline

Everybody is still talking about the other baby, the royal baby. In fact, I saw that President Obama released a statement congratulating Prince William and Kate Middleton on the birth of their son. Then he said, “And whatever you do — hang on to that birth certificate.” - Jimmy Fallon

The administration’s attempt to intimidate Fox News and its employees will not succeed and their excuses will stand neither the test of law, the test of decency, nor the test of time.

"There are 27 amendments in the Constitution but only one says 'shall not be infringed,'" Steve Toth said. "The Second Amendment is the amendment that keeps the people free."

“The States then being the parties to the constitutional compact, and in their sovereign capacity, it follows of necessity, that there can be no tribunal above their authority, to decide in the last resort, whether the compact made by them be violated; and consequently that as the parties to it, they must themselves decide in the last resort, such questions as may be of sufficient magnitude to require their interposition.” – James Madison 

"When you disarm the people, you commence to offend them and show that you distrust them either through cowardice or lack of confidence, and both of these opinions generate hatred." - Niccolo Machiavelli

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” - "Obama", 2008

"A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again."

This country does not need to have a conversation about how many bullets should go in a clip. It does need to have a conversation about how many parents should go in a family. It needs to talk about the ghettos of Obamerica and have a serious conversation about broken families and generational dependency. It needs to have a conversation about funneling new immigrants from broken parts of the world into areas already suffering from high levels of unemployment and street violence.- Daniel Greenfield

Gold is the money of kings, silver is the money of gentlemen, barter is the money of peasants and debt is the money of slaves.- Traditional

Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty." -- Thomas Jefferson

“Disarmament of the populace is always the first step to depriving them of their civil rights and human rights…many African-Americans and women are actively assaulting the very document that first secured their own freedom... if you do not believe in the Bill of Rights, then you are not, at heart, an American.” – Mike Adams

Only in America could liberals talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

We need to demythologize guns before the liberal attempt to create a totemic fear of them succeeds. If the gun control mentality promoting fear of guns themselves becomes our national mentality, we would turn the clock back to the days when a warrior class ruled over the people because only they had the confidence and expertise to deploy the means of defense and coercion. The gun control agenda will turn us into a people too timid to defend themselves from our would-be masters. – Alan Keyes

So now that there is a new tragedy the president wants to have a “national conversation on guns”. Here’s the thing. Until this national conversation is willing to entertain allowing teachers to carry concealed weapons, then it isn’t a conversation at all, it is a lecture. – Larry Correia'

Lets see if I have this straight...Former President Bill Clinton ... who lied to his own wife... was convicted of perjury ... disbarred from practicing law in his home state... an admitted philanderer ... who "Never had sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky" ...

 "Thanking Obama for killing Bin Laden is like going into McDonalds and thanking Ronald McDonald for the hamburger. It's the guy cooking the burger that should get the credit, not the clown."

How can we stand up to someone that creates a 100 dollar Federal Reserve (FR) note for 2 cents and uses the face value of the note of 100 dollars to buy a 100 dollar U.S. Security where the government has to pay them 4% in interest at the end of the year? A yearly cost of 4 FR notes where it only cost the FR 2 cents to print.

This is the biggest Conspiracy you may ever encounter and this started sometime around 1913. Yes, your parents and their parents had so much of their time stolen from them at a cost of 2 pennies. And the National Debt is one big fraud. And this is not just in the United States but the whole world.- Steven Pattison

“Can you imagine a nation founded on the principles of God is being taken over by a party that despises God, denies God’s existence and wants to stab Israel in the back in order to support the Islamists who would kill the Jews and drive them out of the Middle East?”- - Michael Savage

"WE own this country, and when someone doesn't do the job "we have to let them go."- Clint Eastwood at RNC

"If you've got a business -- you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen”- Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro

“Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through the process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.”
- President American Bankers Association, 1924

"I think it is wonderful that Eric holder is making sure that Mexicans' second amendment rights are preserved!" - Bobby Florenz 

“My father was a hardcore conservative and a straight line Republican voter before he died. Now he votes Democrat.” (-Unknown)

Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffett Rule.' Obama is under the mistaken impression that America's symbol is the bald ego." --The Wall Street Journal's James Taranto

 ‘In years to come there is going to be information that will come out that Obama was not the man who made the call. He can say he did and the people who really know what happened are inside the Pentagon, are in the military and the military isn’t allowed to speak out against the commander- in-chief so his secret is safe.’—Chris Kyle, former SEAL sniper

Remember just a few years ago when...

...the official unemployed was at 8.4 million instead of 12.4 million?

...the U.S. debt was at 9.5 trillion instead of 15.5 trillion?

...gas was $1.89 a gallon?

...the U.S. was friends with Isreal? Stamp Recipients was at 29 million instead of 46 million?

...U.S. Astronauts didn't have to travel with Russians to go into space?

...our country's credit rating was a Triple AAA rating?

"Apparently, I'm supposed to be more angry about what Mitt Romney does with his money than what Barack Obama does with mine."- David Burge

Rep. Randy Neugebauer put the burden into perspective: “It will take over 24 million man hours to comply with Dodd-Frank rules per year. It took only 20 million to build the Panama Canal.”

"Sixty-one percent of debt issued by the Treasury is bought by the Federal Reserve -- which is to say the left hand of the U.S. Government is lending money to the right hand of the US Government. ... Nonetheless, in a land where every mewling babe in the American nursery is born with a debt burden of just under $200,000, the president brags that only his party is 'compassionate' to have no plan whatsoever even to attempt to do anything about this, no way, no how, not now, not ever." --columnist Mark Steyn

Isn't it amazing how every facet of Sergeant Bales life,  high school, college, employment, why he left his employment, his brother’s employment, his wife’s employment, real estate holdings, a missed house payment , a missed promotion etc., is exposed within a week and the same fact finders can't find comparable info on the most powerful man in the world in three plus years ?

"Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves."---- Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th US President

“The election of President Obama by the presidential electors, confirmed by Congress, makes the documents and testimony sought by plaintiff irrelevant,” Obama’s lawyer Jablonski said.

"The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and for people, equally in war and peace, and it covers with its shield of protection all classes of men, at all times and under all circumstances. No doctrine involving more pernicious consequences was ever invented by the wit of men that any of its great provisions can be suspended during any of the great exigencies of government."

– Ex Parte Milligan (1866)


Permit me to hint whether it would not be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of foreigners into the administration of our national government ; and to declare expressly that the command in chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on any but a natural born citizen.

"The actual need for a service, its relevance and value is always subordinate to the bureaucracy.
