I try to explain to people that our government has become an enemy o f the American people, and that it is now controlled by people who have the same mentality as every other tyrant in history, and that they are capable of the same atrocities. Most times, I am met by skepticism. I can understand that: no one wants to believe their government has become a source of evil. Still, if you will only look at what is happening in this nation with a decent knowledge and understanding of history and you will see the warning signs. Now, this does not mean that these things are happening, or that the worst will come to pass, but it does mean that the evidence they are happening and will come to pass is growing stronger with every scandal and we had better wake our friends, family and neighbors to the threat. The wolf is no longer at the door, he is inside the house.
The issue at hand this time is the continuing campaign to take away private firearms. It has been argued there are more than 20,000 gun control laws in this nation, and countered by reports that there are only some 300 “meaningful” gun control laws. But why does it matter whether there are 20,000 or only 300 when just 1 is against the constitution?
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.
Our founders were quite clear about their intentions for the second Amendment, and the word they used was arms, not “firearms.” There is a significant difference:
The said constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.
Arms are defined as:
Definition of ARM
1a : a means (as a weapon) of offense or defense; especially : firearm
In our founder’s time, this would have included everything from a sword to a cannon, more if you could afford it. But the purpose for the second amendment has been perverted for a reason. It was never intended to protect sports shooting or hunting, it was intended to provide the People with the means to resist government tyranny. Samuel Adams had a thought for those who would tell you otherwise:
How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!
This time, I am writing about the connection between history, the mindset of the tyrant and a scandal that – were we still an honest nation of laws – would have brought down President Obama and several of his cabinet: the government attempt to create a crisis that could be used to seize private firearms known as “Fast and Furious.”
There is a new book out about this attempt to take our rights:
A bloody scandal and its shameless cover-up:
No scandal is more threatening to the Obama administration than Operation Fast and Furious. While other scandals involve money, Fast and Furious involves lives, including that of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, gunned down with a weapon that the federal government put in the hands of Mexico’s narco-terrorists.
As shocking as Operation Fast and Furious was—and this book explains, in chilling detail, just what this operation conducted by the ATF, under the supervision of the Justice Department, entailed—equally appalling is the blatant cover-up of wrongdoing by the Obama administration. No reporter has been more dogged in tracking down the facts about Fast and Furious than Katie Pavlich. In her stunning new book she reveals:
The documents that undermine the White House’s claims of ignorance about Fast and Furious
How Eric Holder, President Obama’s attorney general, has, under oath, repeatedly changed his testimony
The still mounting death toll from Fast and Furious
The retaliation against Fast and Furious whistleblowers
Why Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano might be charged with perjury
The Obama administration’s continuing assault on Second Amendment rights
Why Fast and Furious could be a bigger scandal than Watergate
Unraveling the mystery of what Fast and Furious was all about, Katie Pavlich delivers a stunning indictment of a radical administration willing to trample the Constitution and risk lives to achieve its ideological goals.
It would seem that Eric Holder has a history of attempting to grab guns:
It also seems that, thanks to this new book, “Fast and Furious” wasn’t “botched” after all:
And that Head of Homeland Security, Napolitano, has – indeed – perjured herself in this case:
And evidence that the media’s is complacent in all of this is evidenced in its silence on this matter. Given how hard they went after Nixon over Watergate – essentially nothing more than Nixon trying to show loyalty by trying to cover his peoples’ backs – you would think the media would be all over this story, but they’re not. In fact, the MSM seems to be doing everything it can to burry this story. This is because the MSM is exactly what I claim it is: the propaganda wing of the Leftist agenda in this nation.
Now, keep all of these pieces about the “Fast and Furious” case in mind as I remind you of what Janet Rino said in a TV interview while she was Attorney General for President Clinton:
“Waiting periods are only a step. Registration is only a step. The prohibition of private firearms is the goal.”
So, why would our government want to take our weapons? Well, I’ll leave you with two last quotes and let you to decide the answer for yourself:
“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed the subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.”
–Adolf Hitler, Hitler’s Table Talks 1941-1944, Edited by H.R. Trevor-Roper (London: Widenfeld and Nicolson, 1953), pp. 425-426.
As opposed to:
“When the government fears the people there is liberty; when the people fear the government there is tyranny.”
Oh, I suppose I should include one more quote, to explain why the government would want to create fear among the People – even if they have to cause it at their own hand as in the case of “Fast and Furious:”
“Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death.”
The supposed purpose never matters; it’s all about the mindset. And if “Fast and Furious” is anywhere near what these stories purport it to be, then the President, Attorney General and head of Homeland Security are of a mindset that sees no problem with arranging the deaths of American citizens to further their political agenda. How is that not the mindset of a tyrant?
