La Voy Finicum Executed by the FBI

An Open Letter to Congressman John Ratcliffe

Subject: The Proper Role of Government

Congressman,

No doubt you are aware of the Oregon standoff that ended with the slaughter of citizen La Voy Finicum.

The Moment the FBI Executed La Voy Finicum

The standoff in Oregon ended with an unarmed man shot to death by FBI. To me, this is “Ruby Ridge Deux”.

This is an opportunity to refocus on the first duty of all government. For this, let’s look again at a foundational principle found in the second paragraph of the Unanimous Declaration of Independence.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…

Review the video for yourself. See heavily armed FBI agents execute La Voy Finicum. FBI personnel claim only a few shots fired; witnesses claim as many as 120.

The Point

As I point out above, the chief duty of all government, federal state and local, is to secure the rights of citizens. What I see, and surely you, too, is this did not happen for Mr. Finicum.

This is an all too familiar replay of tyrannical government abuse. Earlier examples include the heavily-armed assault on a home in Miami to forcibly repatriate Elain Gonzales to his noncustodial parent, the father. It was the custodial parent, Elian’s mother, who risked her life and losing it to get her son to our shores.

Still earlier, the heavily-armed assault on the Branch Davidians in Waco where children, as well as adults, perished in a government-started fire. Seventy to eighty persons, all U.S. citizens, perished at the heavy hands of federal employees – none of them were punished.

For the last example, I remind you of the Ruby Ridge incident where FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi shot an unarmed mother to death, she with her child in her arms.

My Appeal

Apparently, federal law enforcement personnel are unaware of the principle stated above. This in mind, I ask you to prepare and promote legislation that would require annual refresher training for all federal government employees, whether armed or not.

2006-2016: The Decade of Duplicity

January 27, 2016 ADIT'S ALIVE ALGORE

Former Democrat VP, self-certified climate expert, and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Al Gore awoke this morning to a startling surprise: The Earth is still very much alive.
 
24 years ago, Mr.Gore wrote a book titled “Earth in the Balance: Ecology and the Human Spirit” in which he decried the perils of global warming, ozone depletion, air and water pollution, deforestation, depletion of top soil, waste disposal and loss of biodiversity. [Fact check: for what it’s worth, today we have more trees than at the time of Columbus’ landing in the Americas.]
 
On the matter of “biodiversity”, this has been a consequence of the Second Law of Thermodynamics: the universe continuously and irreversibly loses energy, thereby affecting all life on earth. As one scientist elegantly stated, “As usable energy is irretrievably lost, disorganization, randomness, and chaos increase.” Yes, Algore, we have been continually losing animal and plant species since the creation of the world. This is why we have no T-Rex and Brontosaur running about our neighborhoods today.
 
Moving right along, Gore published a second book on his favorite subject in 2006 called, “An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It”. In this book of false prophecy, he predicted the earth as we know it would come to a miserable end within 10 years. Well, here we are 10 years later on and now I can say, “It’s alive, Algore! It’s alive!!”
 
From the very beginning of the well-engineered hysteria over our imminent demise as a species, governance has been on a long march from statehood to global governance. Yes, the end game of the false prophets like Mr. Gore is a one-world government.
 
Obama pushes decision making into the hands of the UN. The Trans-Pacific trade agreement is Obama’s biggest deal to date. Under the terms of this agreement, We the People of the United States of America surrender our sovereignty without so much as a whimper from Congress.
 
Leftists never sleep. We on the right just want to get on with our lives, raise great children, serve our fellow man, then retire in ease. It’s time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country.
 
Inform yourselves. Get involved. Communicate within your community and with your lawmakers, local, state and federal. While the earth is not coming to an end this year, America, the last best hope of the world is heading toward totalitarian tyranny. We the INFORMED People are the only defense.

“Save the planet!”, scream the believers. Call them what you will, whether ‘Global Warming Alarmists’ or ‘Climate Change Alarmists’, theirs is the religion that worships Mother Earth where man is bad for her (except for the true believers).
 
God created the earth and the fullness thereof for our collective benefit. Here in our country, we have abundant energy, farmland, water resources and minerals to live wholly independently of the rest of the world, but those true believers, empowered by Pope Obama and High Priest Al Gore, are rapidly disemboweling our nation’s ability to stand alone.
 
Energy. It’s the singular material factor that enables us to freely manufacture, farm, travel about, see where we’re going and enjoy medical treatment unsurpassed by any other nation.
 
Those true believers call it “green” energy. Well, I agree. It is green, but not the botanical variety of green, it’s the pecuniary variety: money.
 
 
An informed voter is one who will have the lights on all the time.

Six Florida Sheriffs Urge Citizens to Arm Themselves

two florida sheriffs say arm yourself to protecgt against mass shootings

Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey says, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun…You are the first line of defense for you, your family and others around you.”

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd: “I can tell you the probability of needing a firearm is remote, but it’s more important to have a gun in your hand than a cop on the phone.’’

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco: “I support our citizens’ Second Amendment rights. I also support their right to defend their lives or the lives of others. In critical times such as these, or any other time, our country was founded on the principles that allow our citizens to protect themselves.“

It’s Time to Release All Federal Lands to the Respective States

January 15, 2016 AD

The federal government holds control over half of all the land in western states, smaller portions in other states. In Nevada, for example, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) controls 85% of the entire state.

Out in ranch country, ranchers have used federal lands for generations to fatten cattle. As government controls grow, tensions between farmers and ranchers escalate to alarming levels.

Here in Texas, the BLM strives to take possession of privately owned lands along the Red River.
tension between ranchers and federal officials dangerously high in nevada

Molly Hennesey-Fisk reports for the LA Times from Battle Mountain, Nevada.
Furtado, district manager for the last five years, listens to the honking from inside his office. He is no longer allowed to speak publicly and was recently forced to back off on drought-driven grazing restrictions he imposed in 2013 and cede control of negotiations with ranchers to the state director.

Filippini and other ranchers have sued, staged a “pony express” protest ride on horseback to Washington, D.C., and petitioned for Furtado’s ouster. Last spring, they flouted Furtado’s order, set their cattle loose on the public range, and if the agency can’t broker an agreement soon, they’re poised to do it again.

“There’s no more partnership,” Filippini said. “Now it’s them or us.”

When Obama forced a shutdown of federal government back in 2013, he ordered his subordinates to “make it as painful as possible“. At that, the state of Arizona offered to fully fund the Grand Canyon, but Obama refused.

Can there be any doubt? Those majestic purple mountains and the fruited plain belong to We the People, not to a tyrannical federal government.

Urge your Congressional delegation to release ALL federal lands not engaged in Department of Defense to the states in which they are located.

Obama Bankrolls Iranian Belligerence While Ignoring the Plight of Americans Held Hostage in Iranian Prisons

Subject: Obama bankrolls Iranian war machine

Americans languish in Iranian prisons, U.S. Navy military personnel are captured by Iranian naval forces, Congress ignores the Constitution, with respect to treaties, and Obama makes a one-

sided “deal” with Iran, the chief sponsor of global Muslim terrorism. Deal, my friend? Is this not a ‘treaty’ in the strictest sense of the word? Is there not a constitutionally prescribed process for making treaties? I refer to Article II, Section 2.

He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur…

The understanding I have from reading our Constitution is the president doesn’t get to make deals; the Constitution limits his authority to making treaties “with the Advice and Consent of the Senate”.

Iranian leadership advances the development of nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles said to soon be able to reach American soil. This president’s “deal” will provide Iran with necessary billions of dollars to carry out the stated goal to destroy the United States of America and Israel.

Where is Republican leadership, John? Why is there no outcry in Congress? Why is there no call to impeach this lawless tyrant, Barack Obama? What’s being done to stop Obama’s funding of our own destruction?

Judging from his final State of the Union speech, this sitting president obviously values his ego, his flawed legacy, more than the common welfare of fellow Americans.
