GUN ADVOCATES CELEBRATE ‘Secret’ Obamacare Provision Forbidding Exec Order To Regulate Guns And Ammo – Forbes

Posted January 13, 2013

In a shot heard ’round the blogosphere, Vice President Joe Biden’s suggestion that the administration might bypass Congressional participation to regulate guns in favor of using the executive order produced the inevitable choirs of “I told ya so” as Biden’s sound bite appeared to provide the proof that Obama was, indeed, coming for your guns.

But this time, the gun advocates were ready with more than just angry recriminations.

Acting with an assist from CNN, right-wing bloggers and gun advocates in the know, let loose with a tidbit of information they have, no doubt, been long chomping at the bit to unleash—the revelation that there is already a law on the books that would prevent the government from making good on Biden’s tantalizing suggestion, a law that would actually prevent the government from collecting data on firearm ownership and more.

And  what might that law be?

Obamacare. Read More...


Detention prevention strategy goes national

Campaign organizes to push back against Obama provision to arrest Americans

Posted January 13, 2013

A national campaign has been assembled and soon is to be launched to push back against a provision in a federal defense authorization law that one judge already has determined violates the Constitution by authorizing the detention of Americans.
WND has reported previously on the situation, which arose with the adoption of the National Defense Authorization Act at the end of 2011. Read more...


Indicted Businessman Names Harry Reid as Alleged Recipient of Massive Bribe

Posted January 13, 2013

A Utah businessman is rocking both state and national politics after claiming Utah Attorney General John Swallow helped him broker a deal with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to make a federal investigation into his company quietly disappear, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Jeremy Johnson was allegedly told that the price would be $600,000, and claims to have made an initial payment of $250,000 when he was slapped with a federal lawsuit.  Now he says he wants his money back. Read More...

911 Alert for Texas: URGENT: Please Call Your Texas State Rep. - Support Bill Zedler's Rules Changes!

January 13, 2013

Call to Action:

Contact your local Texas House Reps to support proposal by Rep. Bill Zedler (R) Arlington to amend the House Rules as follows:

a. No Committee Chairmen could serve on the Calendars Committee. The Calendars Committee basically controls what legislation is brought up for a 'floor vote;' and

b. If a measure has 76 or more co-authors the Calendars Committee must submit it to the House Floor for an up or down vote within 7 to 10 days. By the way a similar provision is in place in the U. S. House of Representatives. It is called a 'bill of petition.'

Corruption under the existing rules during the last session caused several liberty-minded bills that had broad popular support to never see the 'light of day.' Although the Anti-TSA Groping Bill did finally reach the House Floor towards the end of the 82nd General Session, it's pace, to say the least, was 'leisurely.'

These House Rules reforms will be voted on sometime between this Thursday, January 10 through Monday, January 14 on the floor of the House. Let's immediately contact our local Texas House lawmakers and insist that they vote for these changes. This will 'decentralize' the powers that currently reside exclusively with the House Speaker and that will 'serve as a wall' against future corruption of the legislative process.

BLAME FOR GUN GRAB? GUN OWNERS LOOK IN THE MIRROR

Posted January13, 2013

The only solution is for states to pass a bill to reconstitute the constitutional militia and the people of each state demand their governor sign it into law. THAT will stop the tyrants in Washington, DC., once and for all. Yet, the NRA, GOA and gun groups all across this country ignore the only solution. Why? What is their problem? Yeah, the word militia has been demonized by hate groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center, but that's not excuse to ignore the real solution. I understand groups need donations to stay afloat, but what good is a pro-Second Amendment organization if they chase more Band Aids instead of going after the cure?

The NRA and GOA have roughly 5 million members. That doesn't count all the other gun organizations in this country. I know for a fact the NRA knows all about Dr. Vieira's efforts to get one state to reconstitute the constitutional militia. So does Larry Pratt (who I like and respect) at GOA. Why have they not joined together to pursue the solution? Why the silence on the militia? If you belong to the NRA, GOA or any other gun organization, ask their leadership: Why will you not make the Second Amendment a priority? I mean the real meaning of the Second Amendment by supporting efforts in any state to reconstitute the constitutional militia? Ask them.

Sheriffs CAN Block Federal Gun Control

Posted January 13, 2013

“A high-profile former sheriff who once sued the U.S. government over its gun regulations – and won – says it is the local sheriff who will have to defend Americans when and if the feds starting banning and confiscating guns.
Richard Mack, a former sheriff in Graham County, Ariz., joined with then-Ravalli County Sheriff Jay Printz in a lawsuit against Washington when Bill Clinton demanded sheriff’s enforce provisions of the Brady Bill gun control law.

He won. And since then he’s been at the front of a movement that highlights the responsibility of local sheriffs.

Now, as Washington gears up to consider imperious plans to limit guns, require fingerprinting and registration, impose additional taxes and fees, ban particular features or functions outright, and even confiscate weapons of self-defense, Mack has told WND that there’s hope remaining in local law enforcement.

It’s not complicated, he said.

“Gun control is illegal and it’s against the Constitution,” he said. “What people don’t realize is that the Second Amendment was designed to protect us from the power of the federal government.”

Early Voting Under Way in the Special Election for Texas Senate District 6

Posted January 12, 2013

R.W. BrayDay one of the Texas Senate District 6 Special Election was astounding.  There were a total of 328 votes cast from all the early voting locations and mail-in as reported by the office of the county clerk. 

Only 288 people actually walked into a polling place on Wednesday. 40 votes were cast by mail-in.

Over the 12-day early voting period, an average of 328 votes would put the total of votes cast below 4,000! More votes are cast in races for president of the student body.

There are just under 250,000 registered voters in this district! Despite the socialist Dems flooding television with ads, this race is under the radar. Whoever is able to inform their voters and get them to the polls, will be the victor. 

There is only one conservative in the race and that is R.W. Bray. We need to rally the troops and do what we can to help R.W. Bray win this race.
