Testimony On The Immigration Bill

Illegal Immigration still is a huge problem for this country... mostly because our laws are not being enforced and we have an administration which seems to be purposefully ignoring our laws and even promoting illegal immigration in many ways.. we even have "sanctuary cities". And now, in some places illegal aliens are able to get drivers licenses, and soon may be able to serve on juries. No doubt they have been voting in elections as well.

It is out of control!

Here is testimony from Chris Crane, ICE Officer and President of the National ICE Council representing our nation's ICE officers, agents and staff. Crane is also a former marine.




Gang of Eight
in the Senate:
The Gang of Eight members are John McCain, Marco Rubio, Dick Durbin, Lindsey Graham, Michael Bennet, Chuck Schumer, Robert Menendez and Jeff Flake.

What is CISPA?

Here is a great explanation of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA)




It's not good.

The legislation was introduced on November 30, 2011 by U.S. Representative Michael Rogers (R-MI) and 111 co-sponsors. It was passed in the House of Representatives on April 26, 2012, but was not passed by the U.S. Senate. President Obama's advisers have argued that the bill lacks confidentiality and civil liberties safeguards and they advised him to veto it. In February 2013 the House reintroduced the bill and passed it on April 18, 2013. (Read more on Wikipedia)

I hope it gets stopped in the Senate.

Again, we must contact our Senators and tell them to vote against it.

Lying News - Garbage News


Seriously, when catastrophe and mayhem occur, you cannot rely on Cable or Network News to give you credible information... so why watch?

Sandy Hook, the Boston Marathon... The flurry of misinformation and in some cases dis-information is obvious. You hear someone was arrested and not arrested, suspects found or not found, places on lock-down or not... is this all designed just to instill fear and confusion? Or do they truly not know what the hell they are talking about?

From the shady characters apprehended in the woods near Sandy Hook School to the hooded shadowy figure on a rooftop by the bombings... we do not get the honest truth... just video and images and a lot of garbage commentary to go along with it.

The "News" freely makes announcements of information that is incorrect, confused, continually "breaking", and biased as well.   It didn't take CNN and other biased "news" outlets to start making wild suppositions that the Boston Bomber or bombers were some "Right Wing Extremists" ... in fact it's almost like they have been praying for that to be so - and this type of biased speculation is considered News?

Shortly after the bombings - at 5 PM -  I was driving in my car and CBS radio news on WTIC 1080 News had a report via their sister station in Boston, and the broadcaster was saying something along the lines of ... "well, it's Patriot's day so this bombing might have something to do with a domestic terrorist who may be linked to some militia group"... I almost drove off the road I was so damn mad.
How is this unprofessional speculation and biased opinion considered "News"? It's not even fact... it's mere conjecture.  The newscaster said, "There are no facts that brought us to that conclusion but we feel it would be a mistake to rule it out." What kind of garbage "reporting" is that?

And at what point do we, Conservative people in this country, file a class action lawsuit against CNN, Wolf Blitzer, The New York Times, MSNBC et. al. for their consistent and outrageous defamations and libels with knowing malicious intent?   

Their desire to control public opinion and direct false narratives is obvious. The recent gun control issue is a prime example.  The constant barrage of anti-gun messaging - peppered with lies and myths - is designed to brainwash the public at large to be anti-gun, much like the anti-smoking campaigns of the 80's and 90's. AG Eric Holder stated unequivocally that the population must be brainwashed in this manner regarding so-called "gun control" (which is merely citizen disarmament).   

Getting back to the News...Are ratings more important than accuracy?
Should we allow ourselves to be pulled into urgent breaking News reports that are merely time wasting trash talk? 


Whatever happened to careful reporting .. where facts mattered and information was verified and validated?
Whatever happened to newscasters that gave facts instead of biased speculation?
Whatever happened to reports that are meaningful? and truthful?

Every second we are bombarded with "breaking news" or "alerts" or some other made up level of "urgency".... and yet it is recycled information that is most likely incorrect.

And then they have the audacity to blame it on "the fog of confusion" because everything is happening so quickly.

But even when they say something that is wrong - they hardly ever retract it.
They just blame it on "conflicting reports".

Well, isn't it their job to sort out the correct story before saying anything?
And worse than that, they keep repeating misinformation for public consumption.

This isn't NEWS.
This is Garbage.

As consumers of news we ought to demand reliable reporting.
We ought to pull ourselves away from the constant barrage of misinformation from these boneheaded newscasters who spew out nonsense and suppositions and wait for the press conferences or first hand eyewitness accounts.       

Contact your local radio and TV news and demand accurate reporting.
Tell them we have had enough of the sensationalistic crap.
Tell them that as newsmen and women that their responsibility is to deliver truthful and accurate information to their viewers.
Otherwise it isn't News.... it's just making stuff up, either to get ratings or to control thought.

Well-Regulated


For all of those Leftists who are trying to twist and mis-represent the term "well regulated" in the 2nd Amendment to mean that we should have laws restricting, or regulating, gun use... . here is the REAL meaning of what well regulated actually means...

The meaning of the phrase "well-regulated" in the 2nd amendment

From: Brian T. Halonen 

The following are taken from the Oxford English Dictionary, and bracket in time the writing of the 2nd amendment:
1709: "If a liberal Education has formed in us well-regulated Appetites and worthy Inclinations."
1714: "The practice of all well-regulated courts of justice in the world."
1812: "The equation of time ... is the adjustment of the difference of time as shown by a well-regulated clock and a true sun dial."
1848: "A remissness for which I am sure every well-regulated person will blame the Mayor."
1862: "It appeared to her well-regulated mind, like a clandestine proceeding."
1894: "The newspaper, a never wanting adjunct to every well-regulated American embryo city."
The phrase "well-regulated" was in common use long before 1789, and remained so for a century thereafter. It referred to the property of something being in proper working order. Something that was well-regulated was calibrated correctly, functioning as expected. Establishing government oversight of the people's arms was not only not the intent in using the phrase in the 2nd amendment, it was precisely to render the government powerless to do so that the founders wrote it.


Just sayin'

Obama Breaks The Law



Policy Statement
Federal funds may not be used to influence or attempt to influence any member of the Executive or Legislative branches of government (including any agency employee) for the purpose of securing a grant, contract, or cooperative agreement or an extension, renewal, or modification of any of these. Charging travel expenses to a federal award or being paid from a federal award while attempting to influence the award of federal funds for a specific program is defined as lobbying, and is prohibited. Such expenditures by a third party on your behalf are prohibited as well.

It is wholly appalling how this President continues to ignore the law.. and not get called out on it!
He must be made accountable, and in this case parading these parents in front of Congress in order to pursue an agenda to eviscerate the 2nd Amendment is just incredible.

Obama is exploiting these parents - using their emotion and loss to promote a national citizen disarmament program... but then again we all know his mantra always has been "Never let a good crisis go to waste".

Additionally, these parents seem to be co-operating nicely while they are making commercials, appearing on 60 Minutes and Talk Shows, doing radio ads, and other public appearances. No doubt, it won't be long for them to get book deals and Lifetime Movie deals and hiring publicists. I wonder who is paying for all of this and if they are getting paid as well.  Aren't these parents missing work-time from their "regular jobs"?

..and why aren't we hearing more from parents like Mark Mattioli - a Newtown parent who lost a child and does not believe more gun laws and gun control is the answer??

Who exactly is funding these organizations Newtown Action Alliance, Sandy Hook Promise,  CT Against Gun Violence, and March For Change, etc.

Have there been false pretenses in raising money "for Newtown" and money collected at events...to supposedly help the families of victims and 1st responders in Newtown ... how much of that money is going towards anti-gun lobbying efforts through those organizations collecting funds?  Who, for instance, is paying for the glossy large sized post cards being handed out by these parents to legislators?

Follow the money.
Money is being misused here.
Lawsuits should be filed.

In-Effective Gun Laws And Magazine Ban In Progress - CT

 

Bi-Partisan my ass!
The Socialist Democrats in the CT Legislature have crafted an anti-gun crap sandwich for compromising Republicans to swallow.  And swallow they will because they always fold like a bunch of cheap shirts. They all pat themselves on the back and talk about how hard they worked to hammer out "a deal" - when they just merely capitulated to the whims of the ruling class in the legislature to punish gun owners.  As far as I am concerned, any Oath and Constitution respecting legislator would never vote yes for this bill, and I am hoping there will be some honest and sane legislators who will take a stand and say NO to compromising 2nd amendment rights in this state.

A Draconian "Emergency Certified" bill will now be summarily rammed down the throats of CT gun owners. It would be fine if any of the proposals would prevent another Sandy Hook massacre from happening - but they won't. These new laws will only serve to punish legal gun/permit owners and give an advantage to criminals in CT and give more power to the State to dictate 2nd amendment rights and to make gun ownership more difficult.  The State is now going to tell everyone what THEY think citizens should have to defend their family and home... and mind you, the criminals won't care in the least.

One person commented:
“I haven’t had a chance to do it yet, but could someone please inform MS-13, Mexican Mafia, The Aryan Brotherhood, Black Guerrilla Family, The Crips, The Bloods, The Latin Kings and any other lot of fellows that this new magazine rule is going to be in play? I would hate to see any of these upstanding citizens get in trouble because they didn’t follow the 10 round rule for their legally owned guns and magazines. Thanks”

I wonder if Sen. Williams will send a memo to CT's gangs letting them know they should comply.

Highlights of this piece "infringing" legislation:
*Expand and strengthen an existing prohibition on semi-automatic assault rifles;
*Ban the sale of ammunition magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds;
*Mandate registration of existing high-capacity magazines;
*Create a “dangerous weapon offenders registry,” available only to law enforcement;
*Require a “certificate of eligibility” or gun permit before buying any ammunition. Certificates of eligibility could only be obtained after undergoing a national criminal background check;
*Institute a universal background check for all purchases of firearms, including private sales.

None - absolutely NONE - of these provisions would have prevented Adam Lanza from doing what he did.

This proposed new CT firearms law requires special registration for any magazine that accommodates more than ten rounds (considered "large capacity"). Penalty for non-compliance: Class D felony, 1 to 5 years, Up to $5,000. Compliance deadline is January 1st 2014.
So get this - A class D felony!!!.....and this is considered worse than:
*assault
*strangulation
*SEXUAL ASSAULT
*Stalking
*abuse
*public indecency
*LOITERING IN OR ABOUT SCHOOL GROUNDS

The truth is a ban on so-called "high capacity magazines" is stupid and won't make one bit of difference. Lanza had TEN Thirty round magazines, reloaded SIX TIMES and he wasted dozens of bullets and discarded partially full magazines. A 10 round limit will not stop anyone from doing this kind of crime again. The upshot is that these anti-gun lawmakers only seek to make lawful gun ownership more expensive and burdensome. They are calling the most common sized handgun magazines “high capacity” when they are in fact "standard capacity". The fact of the matter is that the gun control folks are already saying they will be back for MORE - they will not stop with this. This is precisely why compromise with these people is useless and only an erosion of our rights.

This isn't about switching out magazines to save 11 kids... nope.. If Sandy Hook Elementary had had some decent school security or if the teachers were equipped with pepper spray or taser guns then more children would have survived. Adam Lanza specifically chose a Gun Free Zone for his attack - we know this just as we know he switched out magazines. So the 30 round capacity magazines and illegally obtained guns he used were not the problem here.

CT permit holders are paying the price for the misdeeds of a madman - the whole massacre could have been avoided if Adam Lanza's mental health issues were properly addressed in the first place!... but what mental health provisions are there in this bill? They will set up yet another useless Task Force... and We still don't know what drugs Lanza was or wasn't taking - and we don't know who he may have spoken to on his gaming chats that may have planted the seeds for his twisted ideas. We still do not know who those two people were that were apprehended in the woods behind the school. In fact, there are many things we do not know about this attack.

It's incredible - at a time when financial collapse is on the horizon and enemies of the US are within our borders, home invasions in our suburbs and crime in our cities these clowns in Hartford want to disarm us? It's immoral.. that's what it is!
