Liberal Dems Introduced H.R. 2554 Before Congress

As they announced on Friday that they would, they did.  Several Democrats, with marching orders from President Obama, introduced new gun Control legislation into Congress, Monday, July 11, 2011.   H.R. 2554, the “Stop Gun Trafficking and Strengthen Law Enforcement Act of 2011” has been officially introduced.  This is spawned by Project Gunrunner, President Obama’s experiment that spent millions of dollars of Stimulus money on new weapons for the Mexican Drug Cartels.  Of course this legislation, as is turns out, is just what Obama’s motive was in the first place.

The liberals wanted new gun control legislation and the Obama administration promised that he was working “under the radar” to get them some.  He claims it was an attempt to trace the gun traffic into Mexico so the FBI and ATF could get a handle on how guns were being trafficked into Mexico.  Unfortunately, ATF agents lost track of the weapons within hours of them crossing the border. Some of them, however, did show up when they were used to kill two federal agents on two separate occasions.  A few of them also show up occasionally in random traffic stops by police, but for the most part, the guns are gone, supporting the Mexican Drug industry and Drug Lords.

Obama needed a good cause to get Americans fired up enough to support new gun legislation.  So he and members of the BATFE devised this scheme to show how our current gun sales policies were allowing the Drug Lords to freely buy guns here in the United States and transport them across the border.  To that end, they had to virtually force the federally licensed gun dealers to complete transactions that they knew shouldn’t be done.  In addition, the Justice Department has found evidence the Obama administration funded the illegal act with Stimulus money.

Most of the guns seized don’t even come from the US. These are Russian.

The problem with this scheme is that they had to force gun sellers to do it in the first place.  Also, the US is not the Drug Lords first choice as the supplier of their hardware.  The best they can get from the US is semi-automatic weapons.  Their weapons of choice are fully automatic “machine guns” that are easily available from illegal gun dealers in Central America.  Truck loads of illegal weapons stream north from Central America every day.  Yet President Calderon of Mexico and President Obama claim that most guns are coming from the United States.  Together, they blame the availability of firearms in this country for the proliferation of guns in the hands of Mexican drug runners.  Hence the need for more gun control laws here in the United States.

Now liberal anti-gun Democrats have introduced HR 2554, the “Stop Gun Trafficking and Strengthen Law Enforcement Act of 2011”, pointing to the guns that went south as the reason we need more gun control laws.  They are also hoping this will “smoke screen” the scrutiny and news coverage of the Project Gunrunner scandal that is now unfolding in Congress.  They, of course, want to look like they are looking out for us so this kind of egregious activity does not continue.

How about allowing our current laws work as they would have if the ATF and FBI had not stepped in to create this scandal.  More gun laws will not do anything to keep guns out of the hands of the Mexican gangs.

Please contact your congressional representatives and express your distaste for this underhanded attempt to enact unwarranted legislation that further works to undermine our Second Amendment Rights.

Operation GunWalker Spawns New Gun Control Legislation

In two previous posts I have been warning that the primary reason Obama would commit treason such as he has with Operation Gun Walker (or Fast and Furious) and arm Mexican Drug lords, was so he would have reason to try to pass more gun control legislation.   Well today I hear that the liberal democrats in Congress are planning to introduce new gun control legislation today. 

In an article by Katie Pavlich for the The Town Hall, she claims that several Democrats announced yesterday that they are planning to introduce new legislation today that is designed to “keep high powered firearms out of the hands of dangerous criminals, including the Mexican Drug Cartels”.  However, the legislation which is called the “Stop Gun Trafficking and Strengthen Law Enforcement Act”, will do no more than punish law abiding citizens and trample our Second Amendment Rights yet again.

Excuse me?!  It was the Obama Administration that allowed the drug cartels to freely purchase the “high powered firearms” in the first place.  The FBI and ATF all but forced the local gun sellers to complete the transactions against their own objections. Obama even funded the operations with money from the stimulus bills.  Problem is, he was hoping we wouldn’t find out about it.

And just as we predicted, here come the liberals with marching orders from President Obama, using it as a reason to gin up support for more gun control laws, with bills in hand. No gun control law is going to keep firearms out of the hands of the Mexican Drug lords, or any other criminal for that matter.  In fact, there is another blogger who has it stated another way:

“There are more than 22,399 restrictive gun laws in force. Of those, not even one has ever reduced crime.  In fact, crime has increased after each of these laws, and the amount depends on the severity and level of enforcement of the law.”

And it especially doesn’t matter how many gun laws we have if the Federal Government is willing to break them their selves to push a political agenda.  This must be what President Obama meant when he comforted anti gun members of his own party by saying, “we are working under the radar” on new measures.

House Representative Carolyn McCarthy who authored other gun control legislation earlier this year, is joined by Elijah Cummings, Carolyn B. Mahoney, to lead this new push.  And it will be a push in which they spare no effort to get it passed and signed.

It is time to contact your representatives and let them know you’re dissatisfaction with the legislation.

Obama Culpable to Funding Project Gunrunner

The United States Justice Department has uncovered evidence that the Obama Administration funded the Project Gunrunner scandal (Fast and Furious project) through the Stimulus Bills.  In an earlier post we noted how Federal agents pressured bonafide gun dealers in border states to allow unscrupulous gun transactions to be completed against the better judgement of the dealers, under the watchfull eye of the Federal agents. 

In addition to agents turning their heads and looking the other way as Mexican Drug Cartels purchased guns in America, Stimulus money was paying for the illegal activity.  Justice.org has located on page 96 of a report on this program, 2009, February, the Recovery Act signed into law, allocated $10 million to the ATF for Project Gunrunner.  The launch of the Project Gunrunner scheme was announced in March of 2009 under orders from Barrack Obama, by the Deputy Attorney General, at a White House press conference.

Stimulus money paid for Project Gunrunner.  Ten million dollars was allocated in the stimulus Porkulus bill to buy semi automatic rifles and revolvers and let Mexican drug lords take them across the border back to Mexico to use them on our Federal agents.

This is an impeachable act that is no less than treason.  This President has provided guns and money to enemies of the United States – namely the Mexican Drug Lords, who have used these very weapons to kill agents of the United States.  The Obama Administration is openly paying for illegal activity in order to manufacture a false premise to enact more gun control legislation.  In a effort to provide a reason to gin up support for taking our guns away, the legislative branch of our government has enabled drug cartels to purchase guns illegally for their own illegal activity.

The Supplemental Appropriations act in June, 2009, allocated an additional $67 million to the ATF for Project Gunrunner which means you can trace the money directly back to Obama.

Then in August, 2010, the Emergency Border Security Supplemental Appropriations Bill of 2010 allocated $37.5 million to the ATF for Project Gunrunner – more money from Obama’s stash.

If you add it up; $10 million in February, $67 million in June, and $37 million in August – that’s $114 million to the ATF specifically for Project Gunrunner that directly funds the Mexican Drug cartels and their arsenal.  All of it in a progressive liberal plan to create a reason for the American people to want more gun control laws and infringe our Second Amendment rights.  Isn’t that fascinating?

Original Content? What For?

Especially when all you have to do is copy what someone else has already written for you, why bother? It seems like most of all the other “most popular” blogs simply copy some other original content from some else’s blog or article anymore. And they are prolific – several posts a day. I must be going about this all wrong. Just rest your eyes and plagerize I say.

It appears that all you have to do is find some interesting subject matter somewhat close to your general line of blogging, start with a couple of sentences of your own and copy the rest. At least they usually put a link to the derivative post, but not always. But be careful you’re not copying a copy of a copy. But then who cares anyway?

I just read a blog post that was copied 100% from somewhere else. What’s more, it was featured in “Freshly Pressed” by WordPress. I thought I read somewhere in their guidelines for being selected, that you should use original content and original pictures, or at least give credit to the picture owner. They did have the original ‘by line’ but it was still copied 100%, including pictures.

I guess that’s why I particularly enjoy reading blogs by authors. There’s a good chance that they’re actually making up their own copy and writing it down. What a concept.

Granted, I have borrowed a line or two in the past because, well, sometimes there really is no better way to put it. But at least I do try to write down an original thought or two of my own or at least change the way an idea I read somewhere else is stated.

Even a lot of articles I find in the “mainstream” liberal media are just copied from some other source. I must be old fashioned – or I don’t get it – or both. Aw, who cares, no one is going to read this anyway.

Whew, I must be fired up. This makes two posts in one day for me. Of course, the first one took a couple of days to produce.
