Newt Gingerich Believes All Men Should Have the Right to Bear Arms

At the annual convention of the NRA, Newt Gingerich gave a rousing speech that was met with much laughter and applause from the members attending.  One thing that was most notable in the things he said was that he believes that everyone on earth deserves gun rights and should have their own Second Amendment.

He also said that if he were elected President, he would “submit to the United Nations a treaty that extends the right to bear arms as a human right for every person on the planet because every person on the planet deserves the right to defend themselves from those who would oppress them, those who would exploit them, rape them or kill them.” 

Wow, compare that to our current “socialist in chief”.  He is currently lobbying members of Congress to adopt the U.N.’s proposed “Small Arms Treaty” that effectively would take away our guns and nullify our own Second Amendment.

I briefly digress here but the U.N. Small Arms Treaty that Obama is so enamored with would, “confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course) and that means yours, ban the trade, sale and private ownership of semi-automatic weapons” (again, that means yours), and other egregious things.  I could go on here but I refer you to an article on this in Forbes magazine from June 7, 2011 for more information on this horrific idea Obama wants to foster if he is re-elected to another term.

But getting back to Mr. Newt, he has a more logical idea that is 180 degrees the opposite – imagine that.  This is the man whom I feel should be at the fore front of our Presidential campaign.  I mean if he were to become our candidate for President on the Republican side, he would no doubt mop the floor with Obama.  This man speaks from the heart, unlike the Bam Bam who needs a teleprompter to remember his lines.  Mr. Newt speaks from the heart because it is part of his core, his personal beliefs, and moral fortitude.  He doesn’t need to be reminded what he believes in his sole.

His speech to the NRA members brought them to their feet with applause when he announced his idea for a different treaty that would empower all people.  “Let’s take the George Soroses and Hillary Clintons head on,” Mr. Newt said to the cheering crowd.  “They represent a world in which elites disarm the rest of us so we are then helpless when elites turn sour and when evil reappears.”

He also told the NRA members that “he has been much too timid and moderate in his defense of gun rights.”  I think that perhaps he should have been a little more vocal on these issues before now.  Maybe he might be a little farther ahead in the race for President.  Afterall, this is the man, out of the current stable of contenders that should become our President.  I mean, think of it – President Gingerich.  Sounds good, doesn’t it? Pass it on.  Maybe it will catch on.  It’s not too late.

“The right to bear arms comes from our Creator, not our government.” – Newt Gingrich

RNC Says Don’t Attack Obama

In a conference call with the Republican National Committee (RNC) and Republican strategists, the RNC said that “party surrogates should refrain from personal attacks against President Barack Obama, because such strategy is too hazardous for the GOP.”  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  OMG!!  That is exactly what every Republican candidate needs to do every day and ramp it up with every speech and press conference.

A story by Yahoo News claims that Republican strategists were warned that too heavy of an attack on Obama could turn voters away.  The story claims that recent polling indicates that voters “feel sorry” for the President and they still give him “high approval”, in spite of record low ratings on his job approval.  Hell, I feel sorry that this country could ever be so gullible to elect such an idiot.  I also understand that Rush Limbaugh, conservative talk show host, just about went ballistic when he heard about this coming out of the RNC.

Apparently the RNC feels that it is OK to vilify and attack fellow Republican candidates with slurs and name calling but ‘don’t go after the President’.  We hear other Republicans say that Bachman is stupid, Cain is a sex offender, Gingrich has had failed marriages and is tied to Fanny Mae, Rick Perry is stupid and look what he did with vaccinations, and so on. But don’t go after Obama because we want to prove to the independents that we are not confrontational, or mean spirited.

BULL SHIT!  The Democrats don’t waste any time going after our guys with both barrels.  Look what they did in 2008 when they put out a bogus story about McCain having an affair.  They don’t just attack; they make it up and lie about it too.  I also believe that it is Democrats, perhaps even the Presidential election committee, that is making up these stories about Cain’s sexual indiscretions.  Afterall, Obama doesn’t want another black running against him.  That way he won’t be able to use the “race card” as he will no doubt do if the candidate is white.

One of the reasons that Gingrich is moving ahead in the polls now is because he is out there with his attacks on Obama. Gingrich is taking it to him and the people want that.  When Trump was vocal about his criticisms of Obama he soared to the top of the polling because he wasn’t afraid to speak his mind.

Our candidates need to put Obama’s feet to the fire on every bit of his failed attempts to bring this country out of recession.  Every scheme, bill or executive order has not only failed but worked to put this country further behind, further in debt, and further down in world opinion.  Right now his job approval rating is lower than Jimmy Carter’s numbers at this same point in his administration.  And just like Carter, Obama is making this country a laughing stock to the rest of the world.

This country cannot afford another Obama term in office.  With another term, he will no longer have to worry about getting re-elected and the gloves will be off.  No socialistic program will be off limits to him.  What’s more, Obama has been treading lightly gun control legislation in this first term, but with no worries about re-election, every gun control bill the liberals and Obama can think of will come out of the woodwork.

The RNC is so wrong.  The candidate that is the most vocal about Obama’s failures and attacks him at every turn is the one who will ultimately become the Republican candidate and go on to beat Obama next November.  The future of this country depends on it.

U.S. Attorney General Lied to Congress

At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing looking the controversial Fast & Furious scandal (also known as Project Gun Runner and Operation Gun Walker) last May, United States Attorney General Eric Holder told the committee members, that he only recently heard about Fast and Furious.  But according to a stories by both the CBS News and the LA Times, the Attorney General knew specifics of the scandal back in mid 2001.

New documents obtained by CBS News, show Eric Holder was sent briefings on the controversial Fast and Furious operation as far back as July 2010, On May 3, 2011, Holder told a Judiciary Committee hearing, “I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.”  Yet internal Justice Department documents show that at least ten months before that hearing, Holder began receiving frequent memos discussing the Project Gun Runner scandal.

This is, for all intents and purposes, perjury.  Representative Darrell Issa, who is the chair of the committee investigating Fast and Furious, suggested on Fox & Friends that Holder may have in fact perjured himself.  The documents came from the head of the National Drug Intelligence Center and Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer.  The Justice Department has publicly tried to distance itself from Operation Gun Walker but these new documents that high level Justice Officials knew guns were being “walked” into Mexico.

Two Justice Department officials mulled it over in an email exchange on October 18, 2010.  “It’s a tricky case given the number of guns that have walked, but is a significant set of prosecutions,” says Jason Weinstein, Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the Criminal Division.  Deputy Chief of the National Gang Unit, James Trusty replied, “I’m not sure how much grief we’re going to get for “guns walking”.  It may be more like, finally their going after people who sent guns down there”.  The only thing is that they, the ATF are the people that sent the guns down there in the first place.  Furthermore, their ulterior motive for this botched scheme was to have a new reason for new gun control laws which they have already put into the works.

This is just another back door way that the Obama regime is trying to circumvent the Constitution.  This whole plan was just a way to try to fix the blame for the violence in Mexico on American gun dealers.  The President could then act all outraged and shocked when it was learned that so many guns had gone south into the hands of Mexican drug lords.  Then it would be logical for them to then say, “This is why we need more gun control laws”.

You have got to know that if this had been a George W. Bush plan to sabotage a liberal issue, the media would be talking impeachment right now.  Impeachment is what we should be talking about considering the fact that at least one Federal border agent has been killed as result of this scandal.  Obama’s fingerprints are all over this.

All of this attention on Eric Holder though, may be how he figures to deflect any focus on himself.  Obama might just want to offer up the Attorney General to take the fall which would then hopefully take scrutiny off of the President.  I am sure that it is not out of the realm of possible scenarios that they are considering.

Earlier today I learned that a congressional subpoena directed to Attorney General Eric Holder could already be going out as early as Tuesday next week, ordering him to turn over documents to lawmakers about when he was aware of a controversial gun smuggling operation know as Fast and Furious.  Again, CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson is reporting that the subpoena will come from the House Oversight Committee, led by Republican Darrell Issa.  It will ask for communications among senior Justice Department officials related to the Fast and Furious “gun walking” operation.

I expect that given how this administration sees themselves as “above the law” that they will ignore the subpoena. This shouldn’t be surprising given how they have repeatedly ignored judicial orders that strike down “Obama Care”. The Constitution is merely an impediment to this administration that will stop at nothing short of being voted out of office.

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.

Mexican Drug Cartels Re-arm, Obama Complains

With rumors, innuendo, accusations, and Congressional hearings prominent in the headlines over the Project Gunrunner scandal, we now hear that the Mexican Drug Cartels are still finding all of the guns they need to keep themselves well armed and deadly in Mexico.  Only this time, they are getting their guns from Central America.  President Obama is claiming that a “lack of gun control laws is the problem”.

It is illegal for the citizens of Mexico to own or possess guns larger than a .22 but that does not stop the criminals from obtaining all the guns they need.  Since the only guns in Mexico are in the hands of the government or the criminals, Mexican citizens have no way to defend themselves against the drug lords.  More and more citizens are supporting the drug cartels as the healthier way to live among them.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon is blaming the United States and the availability of firearms in this country for the proliferation of guns in the

Some of the weapons siezed from the Drug Cartels

hands of Mexican drug runners and criminals, all while the guns they are purchasing are coming from Central America and not the United States.  The guns they are now getting from south of their border are even more sophisticated than the ones that Obama was able to supply them.  Illegal gun dealers providing their market are able to provide fully automatic weapons (machine guns), rocket propelled grenade launchers (RPG) and even land mines – none of which would be available in the U.S.  The best they got from the U.S. were semi-automatic weapons.

In addition to the heavy arsenal that is now proliferating in Mexico, drug cartels are constructing homemade, armor plated, personnel carriers and tanks with as much as 1” thick steel plating.  Many times these vehicles resemble Civil War-era Ironclads on wheels.  These narco tanks, often called “monstruos” or “monster trucks”, look like a cross between a Somali “technical” and something out of a “Mad Max” movie.  Some of them can do 60 mph and drop, James Bond style, nail popping nails or oil slicks to slow down pursuers.  Again Mexican President Felipe Calderon is blaming the United States for manufacturing pick-up trucks and sport utility vehicles that can be made into these bullet impervious vehicles.

Project Gunrunner was a scheme devised by the Obama Administration to allow the Mexican Drug Cartels to purchase guns here in the U.S. against the better judgment of local gun dealers in a hair brained idea that they would be able to track them into the hands of drug dealers south of the border to see where they end up.  Gun dealers here in the U.S. who resisted were pressured by the FBI and BATFE in to allowing the transactions to occur.

However, no tracking was ever achieved under this failed plan, other than the fact that at least one weapon that was used to shoot and kill an agent of the United States has been recovered.  The guns were lost into the bowels of Mexico.  Obama is now trying to blame the U.S. gun dealers and the “lack of gun control laws” for the incident, and as a result, liberals in Congress are now calling for a re-instatement of the “assault weapons ban” of the mid 90s and stricter gun laws for the States that border Mexico.

The idiocy of the Obama administration continues to amaze me as the lengths to which they will go to bring us closer to a socialistic state.  Health care was the first major step into socialism.  Now if they can only get the guns out of the hands of the citizens they will have little problem running roughshod over the country.  Americans need to wake up vote against liberalism at every opportunity.  Whenever you see a candidate on the ballot with “D” after their name, vote for the other guy, whoever it is, and help to save our country.
