Back Off, Barack – Thou Shalt Not Infringe

November 28, 2015 AD

gun-control

In the news this Saturday afternoon in the aftermath of a shooting at a Colorado abortion clinic:

Obama denounces gun violence after latest deadly shooting

Washington (AFP) – US President Barack Obama denounced the country’s epidemic of gun violence on Saturday and renewed a call for tougher controls on military-style weapons after yet another deadly shooting, saying “enough is enough.” – Yahoo! News Read more: http://ow.ly/VddLS

The Colorado shooting is Obama’s opportunity to carry out his agenda to disarm Americans, an agenda that took root back when he was Senator Barack Obama (D-IL).

President Obama hopes to make gun control the top issue of his final year in office, saying Americans aren’t more violent than other people but they “have more deadly weapons to act out their rage.” – The Washington Times, Tuesday, November 17, 2015, Obama says gun control to be top issue of final year

Translation: It’s not that there are bad people; only guns are bad. He seems to be channeling Bill Clinton’s Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders whose infamous idiocy we remember from her statements on crime reduction, as recorded in the following Rush Limbaugh TV video starting at minute 1:48.

Who’s killing whom?

For the record, let’s look at 2015 causes of deaths to see if our president has his priorities straight.

Of the 36 causes of death, “Mass Shootings” are number 35, while “Shot by Police” is number 30. Obama-style conclusion: “Enough is enough. We must disarm police officers.” Well, that’s a senseless argument.

Look at number 6 on the list, Medical Errors, and number 10, Hospital Associated Infection. You are 27 times more at risk of death from being a patient in a hospital than you are of being shot by someone’s gun. Do you hear this president call for our people to avoid doctors or hospitals?

As of the date of this writing, 991,931 Americans have been murdered in and out of the womb by abortionists. Would it not be a common sense policy for Obama to say, “Enough is enough. We must outlaw all abortions.”?

I give these three examples to dismiss Obama’s disarmament scheme as ludicrous.

Personal to Mr. Barack Hussein Obama: What is it about the phrase “shall not be infringed” you do not understand?

Action Item

Contact your congressional delegation and your state legislature. Tell them to oppose Obama’s unconstitutional anti-Second Amendment scheme to disarm us during his lame-duck last year in office.

God scheduled economic resets: the sh’mittah and the yovel [Jubilee]

“At the end of every seven years you are to have a sh’mittah. Here is how the sh’mittah is to be done: every creditor is to give up what he has loaned to his fellow member of the community — he is not to force his neighbor or relative to repay it, because Adonai’s time of remission has been proclaimed.”
Deuteronomy 15:1-2 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

“‘You are to count seven Shabbats of years, seven times seven years, that is, forty-nine years. Then, on the tenth day of the seventh month, on Yom-Kippur, you are to sound a blast on the shofar; you are to sound the shofar all through your land; and you are to consecrate the fiftieth year, proclaiming freedom throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It will be a yovel [Jubilee] for you; you will return everyone to the land he owns, and everyone is to return to his family.”
Leviticus 25:8-10 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

Welcome to the year of Jubilee.

Judicial Hypocrisy – Democrat Double Standard On Gay Marriage

8 September 2015 AD/24 Elul 5775

Back in 2012, U.S. District Judge David Bunning declared her refusal to perform marriage ceremonies, but no federal judge came after her.

In 2015, merely 3 years later on, County Clerk Kim Davis refused to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals, a federal judge ordered her locked away to prevent “a ripple effect” of opposition across the country.

Democrat Double Standard

Fact: the federal courts have absolutely no constitutional authority to make law.

leg•is•late /ˈlɛdʒɪsˌleɪt/ , intransitive verb meaning “to exercise the function of legislation;
make or enact laws“, “to create, provide, or control by legislation” [WordReference.com]

Quoting Chief Justice John Roberts, his dissent against the majority “gay marriage” opinion:

“[T]his court is not a legislature. Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us. Under the Constitution, judges have power to say what the law is, not what it should be.”

Article I, Section 1: Legislative Authority of Congress

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

judg•ment  ( jujmənt), noun meaning “the ability to judge, make a decision, or form an opinion objectively, authoritatively, and wisely, esp. in matters affecting action

Article III, Section 2: Judicial Authority of Federal Courts

The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority;—to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls;—to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction;—to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party;—to Controversies between two or more States;— between a State and Citizens of another State,—between Citizens of different States,—between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States, and between a State, or the Citizens thereof, and foreign States, Citizens or Subjects.

Only the legislative branch (Congress) has constitutional authority to make laws. The judicial branch has authority to resolve disputes over laws made by Congress.

Two Vitally Important Points

Number One – of the thirty enumerated powers granted federal government by the states, defining marriage is not among them. In fact, among those enumerated (limited) powers are none that govern or define the legitimate family. Remember that it was a congress of the States that created federal government.

Number Two – I refer you to the Ninth and Tenth Amendments. At no time in history have the States given authority to federal government to define marriage or the family. Therefore, such definitions are left to the individual states.

Seeking Order

U.S. District Judge David Bunning is under the judicial branch. The U.S. Marshall he ordered to jail Kim Davis operates under the executive branch.

Judge David Bunning fears a “ripple effect” (his words) and I believe his fear well founded. We must add to the ripple effect and amplify it to the press, to our congressional delegates and to our state government.

In the case of Kim Davis, it was the State of Kentucky that failed its duty to protect her.

This onerous, unconstitutional opinion of the Supreme Court overstepped separation of powers granted federal government under the Constitution by creating a new law, a role reserved to the Legislative Branch.

Christians are under attack in the Middle East and we are under attack right here in America. The word for this attack is “persecution”. Jesus warned us. It began 2,000 years ago and now it’s dramatically increasing.

Scripture promises, God promises, “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”

Action

  1. Pray for Kim Davis
  2. Pray for wisdom and grace
  3. Contact your Congressional delegation to demand an accounting by this Supreme Court where five justices are exhibiting bad behaviour worthy of impeachment.

Karl Rove’s solution to ending gun violence? Repeal the Second Amendment

22 April 2015 AD

click on image for link to story on Fox News Sunday website
click on image for link to story on Fox News Sunday website

No, you don’t have to verify this story via Snopes.com. Rove said this on Fox News Sunday in response to a question by Chris Wallace.

Link to story: http://ow.ly/OClOj

Let’s be very, very clear about the Bill of Rights. They were not added to our Constitution to protect the rights of gun collectors. Neither were they added to assure game hunters and shooting enthusiasts freedom to do as they wish. No, the Bill of Rights, specifically the Second Amendment, was put in place, as were the other nine first amendments, to assure us defense against rogue, tyrannical government. There. I said it.

In times past, Rove was often described as “Bush’s brain”, something Rove categorically denies publicly, but fact of the matter is he was George W’s number one adviser. George W. Bush was and is an honorable man, but he made a few bad choices among them hiring an anti-republican rule of law guy to be his chief source of direction.

It’s this way with all presidents. None make decisions without much counsel. Valerie Jarrett is President Obama’s number one counselor, for example.

We were constituted a republic way back on June 21, 1788 when New Hampshire ratified it. It was precisely 227 years ago on the same date as Karl Rove’s foolishness. God truly has a sense of humor. I don’t believe in coincidences. It was by design God allowed Rove to utter his nonsense precisely 227 years from the date of ratification.

Now, I know very well the Bill of Rights were ratified much later on, December 15, 1791, to be exact. There was disagreement about the need for them, because many founding fathers believed these “unalienable rights” were as obvious as the nose on one’s face. Nevertheless, a majority agreed to add them and so they were ratified by the 13 states.

Karl’s unfortunate ignorance of our founding and our history is lamentable, but we who know history must stand against government actions that would cause this nation to cease to be “of the people, by the people and for the people”. Tyranny in a nutshell.

Hey, Buddy, can you spare me a dime? – TEA = Taxed Enough Already

19 June 2015

It wasn't a secret back in 2009 and it's not a secret today. You just tend to ignore it, hoping it will go away. Right?
It wasn’t a secret back in 2009 and it’s not a secret today. You just tend to ignore it, hoping it will go away. Right?

Excerpt from the Investment Watch Blog,

“Rising federal debt threatens to choke economic growth within a decade, beginning a death spiral that will sap revenue from government programs even as demands grow, forcing the government to borrow even more, Congress‘ budget watchdog said in a frightening report Tuesday.

“Budget cuts or tax increases now would help avert that scary scenario, leaving the economy far stronger than it otherwise would be, the Congressional Budget Office said in the starkest warning yet by the independent agency that putting off tough decisions will only make things worse.

“The report — the first major one under new CBO Director Keith Hall — also takes aim at some traditional liberal arguments, finding that government investment yields only half the return on investment compared with the private sector and that money transfers to the poor act as “implicit taxes,” keeping them out of the labor force and depressing the economy further.” – Source: Investment Watch Blog, JUNE 18, 2015

Naturally, “big government” politicians recognize this as a mandate to raise taxes. No, this is another clear sign we must LOWER taxes, particularly capital gains taxes to draw American capital back to our shores. Reliable estimates range as high as one trillion US dollars held offshore out of sight from the IRS. This capital all alone could drive our economy back into the black.

It’s time for the real TEA Party Patriots to resume our work.

Back in 2008, when the Affordable Care Act was on the horizon and became reality after Obama took office, we of the real TEA Party Patriots began organizing rallies against that onerous law that represents even today the largest single tax hike in all our history.

ObamaCare is a threat to all Americans. In fact, a CNN poll found that only 11% of the people polled say it is successful.

TEA = Taxed Enough Already

Unfortunately, neo-Pharisees hijacked our TEA Party movement in a race to promote this or that candidate based on which was more “righteous”. Equally unfortunate, these neo-Pharisees failed to read the Bible where is says, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one“.

It’s time for us to refocus on our original goal: defeat and repeal of ObamaCare. I appreciate prayer meetings where Christians intercede for our nation. My wife and I participate, but TEA Party movement is all about TAXES. We can’t be effective, if we stray from our calling.

Our Congressman here in TX CD-4 ran on a promises to repeal ObamaCare. Let’s not allow him to forget that promise.

Why the Next Stock Market Crash Will Happen Any Day Now

Despite the Dow hitting pre-crash highs, companies reporting positive earnings, and the financial media saying we are looking at the “beginning of a new bull market,” the stock market is on the verge of another historic collapse.

Summary

Can anyone with certainty predict the day, the hour of economic collapse? Only God knows these details. Even if you don’t believe in God, believe the signs of coming problems. I write not to drive you into cringing and fear, but to warn you of the “potholes” in the economic roadway ahead of us.

Government debt at all levels, from federal to school districts and municipalities, is unsustainable.

My parents lived through the Great Depression and came out of it well. I’ve lived through several major economic recessions and come out of it well. If you are unencumbered by long-term debt, you, too, will come out of this next event well.

Founding Father’s Warning Against Perpetual Debt

“[The natural right to be free of the debts of a previous generation is] a salutary curb on the spirit of war and indebtment, which, since the modern theory of the perpetuation of debt, has drenched the earth with blood, and crushed its inhabitants under burdens ever accumulating.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Wayles Eppes, Monticello, June 24, 1813; “The Writings of Thomas Jefferson,” Albert Ellery Bergh, editor (Washington D.C.: The Thomas Jefferson Memorial Association, 1904), Vol. XIII, p. 272

“The term of redemption must be moderate, and at any rate within the limits of [the government’s] rightful powers. But what limits, it will be asked, does this prescribe to their powers? What is to hinder them from creating a perpetual debt? The laws of nature, I answer. The earth belongs to the living, not to the dead. The will and the power of man expire with his life, by nature’s law.” – Thomas Jefferson to John Wayles Eppes, Monticello, June 24, 1813; “The Writings of Thomas Jefferson,” Definitive Edition, Albert Ellery Berg, Editor, The Thomas Jefferson Memorial Association (1905) Vol. XIII, p. 269

What is ‘perpetual debt’? It is that debt generations yet unborn must labor to pay, due to the foolishness of their fathers and grandfathers.

Do Not Go To Jail

Citizens Association for Responsible Gun Ownership
Citizens Association for Responsible Gun Ownership

CARGO Rockwall Gun Club – What’s in a name?

When engaging a criminal perpetrator with your legally owned, legally licensed carry handgun, you face two TWO to FOUR battles.

First: the battle for your life. You fire on a person threatening you.

Second: you may have another battle with a law enforcement person who just doesn’t believe civilians have the right to keep and bear arms.

Third: law enforcement may judge you in the wrong, arrest you, toss you in jail and then a prosecutor may decide to prosecute you, based on charges brought by the arresting officer.

Fourth: family members of the deceased perpetrator will very likely sue you.

Your first battle is a matter of circumstances and your judgement.

All three of the succeeding battles are a matter of what comes out of your mouth after you kill the perpetrator who threatened your life, starting with the 911 call.

What should you say? What should you NOT say?

Battles two and three can be costly. Very costly. Bail bond, criminal lawyer, lost revenue from being off work, emotional trauma to yourself and your family.

Battle four will be the most costly.

How does one prepare in advance to manage these battles?

CARGO Rockwall Gun Club serves to educate citizens and law enforcement officers on pertinent law and behaviors.

CARGO: Citizens Association for Responsible Gun Ownership

CARGO Rockwall was spawned from our parent organization CARGO Wylie just over one year ago.

One of our goals is to foster civil, respectful relations between citizen and law enforcement. Another goal is to educate both parties on pertinent law. Along the way, our volunteer experts teach various firearm subjects from selection of appropriate concealed-carry firearms, to gun accessories, to ammunition. We also teach what to say, what not to say and how to behave before and after the shooting incident.

We are citizens serving citizens. There are no dues or costs of any kind to participate.

You can connect with CHL instructors, federally licensed firearms dealers, law enforcement officers and attorneys.

We meet every SECOND THURSDAY of every month in the private dining room of the Soulman’s Bar-B-Que in Rockwall between Applebee’s and Lake Pointe Church on the eastbound frontage road of I-30.

Join us a little before 6:00 pm to go through the serving line. (This is how the owner pays expenses for our free meeting room.) Then find a seat in the private dining room. Formal presentations begin promptly at 6:00 pm and end promptly at 7:00 pm.

Stay as long as you wish after 7:00 pm to visit with CHL instructors, firearms dealers, law enforcement officers, elected officials, prosecutors and attorneys. The mix of experts varies, depending on real world schedules.

Thanks,

John White
