Armed protesters show up at Erie Pa. anti gun control rally

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/06/23/gun-rights-rallygoers-defy-local-law-confront-police-state-actions/

This is just the beginning. Expect to see more and more of this as the police state starts to clamp down. There will be magazine swap meets in Colorado on July 3rd also in open defiance of the law and last week in Loweville NY there were protests against the SAFE act.    Many of us have had enough and will not give up any more freedoms. We plan on resisting by any means available.  Not one more inch.

AMERICA’S DYSTOPIAN FUTURE

Our trip down the road to totalitarianism didn’t start in 1934 but that was the seminal year for the formation of the all powerful federal government. It actually started with Lincoln asserting Federal power over the states by making war on the confederates; but that was on the level of establishing federal supremacy over the states rights.  I use 1934  as the year that it really started because  that is when unlimited   federal  power was given over the citizenry.            With the much flawed ruling that banned machine guns. the fate of our nation was sealed; by ruling that machine guns affected interstate commerce and were therefore subject to the commerce clause the door was opened to the unlimited abuse of the clause that we now have. With the SCOTUS perverted interpretation of the commerce clause every aspect of American life could be claimed to be under Federal Jurisdiction. From what type of crops a farmer may grow to it being illegal to grow pot in your backyard has been ruled to be subject to the commerce clause. The Fed now dictates everything from your toilet and shower to your light bulbs the    Now for the scary part; the Obamacare ruling the National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius . A lot of people really haven’t thought about the implications of the ruling.      In addition unlimited jurisdiction through the commerce clause the federal government now has the unlimited power to tax; and not the power to tax as set forth in the constitution.  That treasonous bastard Justice Roberts has sold our nation into slavery.  We can now be compelled to do anything or pay a tremendous “Tax”.  There is no limit on the amount of the “Tax” that congress can exact for according to the Roberts court congress makes the call on all taxation.     Worried Yet?  If not, you should be. Think of all the possibilities: Register or turn in your guns or face a $15,000 tax, submit your DNA or face $10,000 tax or  a terrorism screening where you would be compelled to submit your work, financial and family history, your IP address, access to your email accounts and phone records.    You See?  The possibilities are endless. Whether you are left or right or center, name your biggest fear of the government and it can be found with this ruling.  Read it yourself if you don’t believe me.      There are no limitations on civil rights or anything else because you don’t have to comply;All you have to do is pay the tax; Congress has the constitutional authority to tax as it wishes according to this ruling.     Just wait until the scumbags in Washington figure out how to use this. Each party will claim to be the champion of the people protecting them from abuse and tyrannical taxation while they are positioning themselves to get both houses and the presidency so they can tax and oppress the fuck out of their enemies.      But my wonderful story of America doesn’t end here, it only starts here. When you couple unlimited federal jurisdiction and unlimited taxation powers with the increasingly militarized police state you can come up with some very scary scenarios. Anything the police state wants you can be compelled to give them, or be taxed to a pauper, anyone that can afford to not comply will find that under the commerce clause the fed has jurisdiction and they can be compelled by law.    To put it plainly and bluntly, we are fucked.        There is no way of voting your way out of this.  I will never cast a vote again; it does not matter. We have been given over to kings and tyrants by the treasonous scum on our highest court.         But in the end the most important questions are: What are you going to do when it begins?  Will you submit or resist? Will you go on as if life is normal or will you become Edward Snowden?

57% think that NSA data will be used to harass political opponents

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/june_2013/57_fear_government_will_use_nsa_data_to_harass_political_opponents

57% is an astounding number considering how many idiots are still unaware of what is going on. It seems as if the corruptness of this regime is finally starting to penetrate the public consciousness. This cannot bode well for the emperor and his new clothes.

Eric Cantor vows serious investigation into NSA leak : Intel officials overheard saying Snowden should be “Disappeared”

http://thehill.com/video/house/304409-cantor-congress-will-launch-very-serious-investigation-into-snowden

A group of intelligence officials were overheard yesterday discussing how the National Security Agency worker who leaked sensitive documents to a reporter last week should be ‘disappeared.’

Foreign policy analyst and editor at large of The Atlantic, Steve Clemons, tweeted about the ‘disturbing’ conversation after listening in to four men who were sitting near him as he waited for a flight at Washington’s Dulles airport

This is the America we now live in. The powers that be have been exposed for what they are and they are not happy about it. Snowden now has to worry about that knock comes on his door; Nacht Und Nebel.  Night and fog.  Sound familar ?     “The Night and Fog Decree, issued by Hitler in 1941 and disseminated along with a directive from Keitel, was operated within the conquered territories in the West (Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands). The decree allowed those “endangering German security” to be seized and made to disappear without trace. Keitel’s directive stated that “efficient intimidation can only be achieved either by capital punishment or by measures by which the relatives of the criminal and the population do not know his fate.”    That is what we are, conquered territory. It is not Obama or the Democrats; It is the federal government.  It is out of control and now has a life of it’s own. Both parties are in on it and will do whatever they can to perpetuate it’s power because it’s power is their power.   What the federal government was supposed to be was representatives from each state and the president.  Collectively they would govern national affairs and protect the country.   What we now have are endless layers of bureaucracy that would make Kafka marvel. Bureaucracies  such as the EPA and the ATF that are able to make “rules” that carry the weight of law and are not able to be overturned by congress because congress empowered those agencies when they created them. This has even been upheld by the SCOTUS in their decision on the clean air act. (Traitorous  lot that they are)   Yes we are conquered territory. Maybe Nacht Und Nebel has not been enumerated yet but it is here in spirit .The federal government is actively targeting dissenters with the IRS, targeting reporters for prosecution, singling out news organizations that don’t agree with them and collecting information on us all.    Our freedom is gone; We are subjects of the federal government. The government has found out that someone let their secrets out and they are not happy about it. They will attempt to make the consequences as severe as possible.This is only the start.    Be careful what you say…Comrade.

The secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (Yes there really is one) grants the FBI all Verizon phone records in secret order

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/06/nsa-phone-records-verizon-court-order?guni=Network%20front:network-front%20main-2%20Special%20trail:Network%20front%20-%20special%20trail:Position1

Do you get it yet? The police state is here. This behemoth that we call the federal government is so far out of control that there is no reigning it in.  All the apparatus is in place. All that is needed are a few final moves. They have moved dangerously close to their goal.      Do you think that they are done with gun control?  No, it is only the beginning. The only thing that stands between them and their final solution are men with guns and the resolve to stand against tyranny..They have figured out that an outright ban is going to spark a shooting war so they are going to backdoor it.     They will teach your children about how bad guns are. They will pervert the constitution and “Educate” people on what the second amendment really means. They will spend endless dollars to influence elections to ban guns on a state level. They will have advertising campaigns about gun violence.  They are not done by a long shot. They are just going to try another avenue.   In the mean time, the police state grows more powerful. DHS moves farther into domestic policing and more military assets are put in place. TSA grows and becomes more public (as in “surprise” shake downs at Florida bus stations) The NSA now surveils all citizens indiscriminately . The worst part is that all of this goes without mentioning Obamacare, the ultimate in data collecting.     They have now put this on a path that is going to end with a showdown, us against the police state. We are not voting this out; It has gone too far. The beast has taken on a life of it’s own.  Romney was not going to stop this, he was just going to give you his version of it.  Don’t forget that it was GWB that started all of this.

DNA testing is not like finger printing. Can you tell if someone is Jewish by a finger print?

It seems that many people are not even bothered by the SCOTUS decision on DNA swabbing after an arrest.  They are falling back on the argument that DNA testing is just modern finger printing. The problem is that DNA reveals a lot more about a person than a finger print does.It shows if you are black or white or , perhaps, Jewish.  Your family members can be identified, your medical predispositions and more. Researchers recently discovered the gene that makes a person predisposed to be a liberal.      http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/10/28/researchers-liberal-gene-genetics-politics/      Is this the kind of information we want compiled into a giant database that is controlled by an all powerful government?    I don’t know about you , but I don’t think it too far fetched for the government to single out opposition members and persecute them. You won’t even  have to show opposition; All you will have to do is have the gene that gives you a trait undesirable to the powers that be. Maybe you lack the liberal gene or maybe you are Jewish or whatever group they want to suppress.    Now that the bar has been lowered on obtaining DNA it will certainly go even lower. I would say that we can anticipate the day in the future  when we will need a national ID card and a DNA swab to go along with it to prove our identity.       Justice Roberts is a true scum bag and his most recent decisions, have set us upon a course that will end only in tyranny or war. In the end when the fall of our republic happens, history I am sure will judge him as one of the causes of our great catastrophe. You wonder sometimes how a free society can slip into totalitarianism without a shot fired. I say look around and you have the answer.

IRS head visited the W.H at least 157 times

http://dailycaller.com/2013/05/29/irss-shulman-had-more-public-white-house-visits-than-any-cabinet-member/

The stink rises all the way to the top. As much as they deny any knowledge, it is almost certain that it was done with the full knowledge of the administration as part of an orchestration to suppress the vote.  If you think that any part of Chairman Zero being re-elected was legitimate, then I believe you are misguided.      Any laws being passed now are illegitimate and carry nothing but the power of a usurper backed by men with guns. Any law that passed the senate after Al Franken’s  fraudulent election are also illegitimate and are laws with no moral authority.  http://washingtonexaminer.com/york-when-1099-felons-vote-in-race-won-by-312-ballots/article/2504163   This is no longer a process by and for the people; This is now about the elite gaining power and retaining it by lying, cheating, and fraud.    We have officially become a banana republic where our dear leaders will do as they wish without regard for the rule of law or the will of the people.  Just remember that without moral authority their laws mean nothing. They simply become rules enforced by the threat of imprisonment or death ; The dictates of a a totalitarian regime.

There are those who still think they are holding the pass against a revolution that may be coming up the road. 

But they are gazing in the wrong direction. 

The revolution is behind them. It went by in the Night of Depression, singing songs to freedom.

 

There are those who have never ceased to say very earnestly, “Something is going to happen to the American form of government if we don’t watch out.” These were the innocent disarmers. Their trust was in words. 

They had forgotten their Aristotle. More than 2,000 years ago he wrote of what can happen within the form, when “one thing takes the place of another, so that the ancient laws will remain, while the power will be in the hands of those who have brought about revolution in the state.”   Garet Garrett 1938

Ted Cruz kicking the Republicans in the ass, goes up anther notch

http://washington.cbslocal.com/2013/05/23/mccain-accuses-tea-party-colleagues-of-pushing-dems-too-far/

Calling it “a dirty little secret,” Cruz said Republicans “would very much like to cast a symbolic vote against raising the debt ceiling and nonetheless to allow our (Democratic) friends on the left side of the aisle to raise the debt ceiling.”  Cruz is saying what we already know ; The elitist Republican scum that are in office are no better than the Democrats.   At this point we have no alternatives or options. Votes no longer matter when the media chooses the candidates and the cheat machines go into full swing. Don’t forget who started TSA and DHS.

Benghazi Whistleblowers with Info Devastating to Clinton and Obama

http://pjmedia.com/rogerlsimon/2013/05/21/pjm-exclusive-ex-diplomats-report-new-benghazi-whistleblowers-with-info-devastating-to-clinton-and-obama/

From the outset there were rumors that Ambassador Stevens was involved in some type of arms dealing in Libya. It was also rumored that General Ham Carter attempted to send assets into Benghazi and was threatened with arrest if he did not stand down.    On both of these subjects we have gone from rumor to hearsay. If there is in fact truth to these, it will be enough to bring this corrupt administration to it’s knees.    I will withhold further comment until these are sourced and proven true or otherwise.

The corruption of the Obama administration finally boils over

The foul stench of this onerous administration has finally begun to permeate into the general population. While the media still attempts damage control for the administration, it has come to the point that they must admit that something is going on or lose their last vestige of credibility .    Right now they are  trying to spin the AP story into a justified intrusion for national security reasons even while writing a joint letter of complaint to the DOJ. Libya is being spun as a political witch hunt while they call for the release of all the emails involved.  NBC news ran a story yesterday about how overworked and understaffed the IRS was in an attempt to soften the TEA party story, but I believe that one is runaway.     The bottom line here, is that this administration is so corrupt , from the top to the bottom , that eventually what they are doing will have to come out. The only problem I see  is that I don’t think the Republicans will be able to do anything about it. In the past it was expected that when congress asked or subpenaed information that it would be provided.  I am sure that this collection of liars, crooks and usurpers have no intention of giving up any incriminating information. They will instead stonewall, lie and destroy anything that points back to them.    The level of corruption in this government rises to the point of illegitimacy. They have thrown off the rule of law and are actively undermining the constitution. They have entrenched themselves in all the position of power and bureaucracy and are “Fundamentally transforming” our nation.     I honestly don’t see them letting go. The only end that I see is for them to be forcibly removed from power sometime in the near future , either at the orders of Congress or by the people.    

Communists in the Govt. coming out of the closet

Anti- government extremist

The left has a generic term for people like me. Along with right wing, extremist and  far right, anti-government always pops up. In fact I am not anti government at all. I am anti fascist, anti-communist, anti-dictator and anti-king. I am against all the things that our government was set up to protect us against.   I believe that our form of government is one of the most beautiful things in the history of mankind.  It is the embodiment of freedom and self determination. I look at it with reverence and am sometimes astounded by the sheer simplicity of what it actually stands for, written out in such simple terms.

” When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

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, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

That is the founding principle of our nation. It is not only eloquent, but a deep and powerful statement about the soul of our nation and us as a people. How can I hate that? How could I hate a thing of such beauty?   Anti- government ?  Au contraire , I am a government advocate, one who wishes that our republic and it’s principles would stand forever. My only problem is with those that wish to distort and destroy our government. It is they, not I that should wear that label.   This is what we are rising to defend. We are not waging an offensive action, but rather a defensive action; We are not fighting against but rather advocating for.   Anti-government?  No, just give us our damn government back. Read the above, read it again. Now realize that we really believe that. Really.     Lībertās aut mors

They defy us now

I know that most Americans have  been waiting and  hoping that this will all go away; Somehow get better, become normal, and that we could all go about our lives . We hoped that this could be erased from our memory and that we could  just go about our business.   All we want to do is live those American lives that we desire; Peaceful and productive lives that require no thought and are unhindered by outside influence  All we want to do is make money, make peace, make families and make them good families.     Unfortunately it is not unfolding that way . Our lives, our very way of life, has become permanently disrupted. Our liberties as defined in the constitution and claimed by us as God given rights, are under assault.  We have been left with no choice;  It is up to us. There is no cavalry arriving  except ourselves;  Men and women dedicated to the cause of liberty and the constitution; To freedom .    They defy us now, they claim rights over us that they do not have; Powers not granted, illegal and without representation.They sit in congress and refuse to represent the people that sent them, They pass gun control bills, they pass the NDAA, the patriot act and other onerous bills. Their intent is now becoming clear; They don’t represent us, we are just the the little people and after we elect them   they will do whatever keeps them elected.    Our representation has been removed through corruption and  our recourse has been absolved through influence.     We have no choices left. Our voice has been stifled, strangled by the system , so far past any form of change.   We must do what we must do.    I desire nothing more than peace and dread the thought of war; But as an American I see no other choice. As a man of honor, I can only say that I will take this fight on; I cannot turn away, I will not turn away. You will not take my guns or rights or my dignity; I cannot permit that.    I will fight, fight until you kill me,  kill me dead;  And After you kill me others will fight in my stead. You don’t know what you have birthed, we are men that have taken an oath to die for freedom.     I will die for freedom, where ever it is. So help me god . I will fight for honor, and die for it. I will fight and die for the constitution of the United states of America.    Let me put this in no uncertain terms :  Violate the constitution at your own hazard.  I personally will take arms against you if you do so. I will give my life, thrown against the machine, if it comes to that. Your own life will become a hazard.   My life will be gone, but for a cause worthy of dying for.      Liberty or death. By liberty we live, by slavery we die. I do not couch terms here. I fight for liberty or die. Come for my liberty and I will stake my life on it.   Got that ?  The fight is on.

The road to war part III

The real root of the problem here is the two party system. The Republicans are our only alternative to the leftists in power. They are doing nothing but playing politics as usual, so far out of touch and so far removed from the real America that they have no clue that a revolution is brewing beneath their feet. As the federal government and various states move in to extinguish our god given rights, those in power in D.C. position for re-election.    Rand Paul? He is not a republican. He is a RINO in it’s purest form. He had to take the branding to get elected. If what he represents were Republican ideals, we surely would not be in the predicament that we find ourselves in now. I appreciate his fight and laud his efforts, but I think they are pointless.   There is a small glimmer of hope in me that he will awaken enough people, that this bitter cup will be taken from our lips; But it is small.   The process is so broken, so far from what it is supposed to be that I feel deep down that it is beyond fixing. While they drone on (No pun intended) and argue about how many more of our rights are to be absolved, new bills of rights are being fielded and plans are being laid for the post revolution government. That is how far out of touch they are.     I am sure that DHS has picked up on the chatter ,but they mechanically and coldly view it through the eyes of threat assessment. It doesn’t get the real flavor of the reality; We now live in an America where people are making plans for a post revolution government.  Everyone knows that something is coming; We can feel it in our bones, like creeping chill. Everyone is preparing knowing that what is coming is not good. Everyone but them, they sit up there in their ivory castle oblivious to the storm building outside.  Dark clouds are on the horizon my friends. Hope for the best and prepare for he worst. It has already started, they just don’t know it yet .   Tempis Fugit

Why they will have to pry it from my cold dead fingers

I don’t take many vows as I am a man who keeps his word and too many oaths would be indefensible.  But one that I did take was an oath to defend this country when I was only 8 years old. I remember the day as yesterday. My father, a good and honorable man, swore me in to the civil defense. He swore me in because he was the head of it; The local chapter that was charged with safe guarding the  community. The head of a bunch of men armed with Springfield 1903′ s that would make sure that we were safe in emergencies or war. This was back in a time when citizens could be trusted with homeland security. War veterans mostly filled the ranks recruited from the VFW.      He was an obvious choice as commander , as he was of the local VFW also, a strapping man of 6′ 1″ who commanded the respect of all he met. A Vet who fought honorably in WW II . Fought, survived, continued and gave all that he had, not just there but in all of his life.    I got to drive with him that day in an open top civil defense jeep, both wearing white helmets emblazoned with the logo on the side.  We went to the local depot where all the equipment and vehicles were stored. Inside it also housed a small office. We went into the depot which was stacked high with logo-ed boxes and canary yellow electronic devices and he took me into the office.  He filled out the affirmation form and had me raise right hand and repeat the words after him. When I was done he patted me and told me I was now a member of the civil defense and I would be responsible to help defend and protect our state and country.   Now I understand that  an oath that you take when you are 8 really isn’t binding, even though it did make a great impression on me.  But the oath isn’t the whole story, Afterwards, we parked the jeep and stowed the equipment and got in our sky blue station wagon and headed home. On the way I asked him a question about the oath, There was a part in it that read that you would not join any group political or otherwise, that would attempt to violently overthrow the government. I wanted to know why anyone would want to do that.     He told me that the commies always wanted to overthrow the government, but that was basically a pipe dream as they were much outnumbered by men like himself.  He went on to say that the only real chance that it would ever be attempted would be if the government ever attempted to ban guns.    He then looked over at me very seriously and said ” When you get older don’t ever register your guns, not even if they pass a law, none of mine ever will be”   He went on tho explain that they had to know who had guns and how many to be able to try and take them.         I never forgot either one of those things from that day and they both had a profound effect on me.  It definitely deepened my sense of patriotism but it was also my first realization as a child that the country and the government weren’t the same.   I also took another oath that day under my breath; That I would never register any guns and I would never allow the government to take them.   I wish dad was still around because I think I would get patted on the shoulder again, as I did that day, for what I am about to say……..

Explosives manufacturing in the news : Is that the sound of S starting to HTF?

It is one thing when you tell someone how many people have been busted recently manufacturing explosives. It is entirely another when you gather news headlines to give them a visual; And that is exactly what I have done. Below is a collection of recent headlines concerning  explosives manufacturing. The majority are not criminal types, a couple are on our side for sure and at least 2 are recent vets.  Most of the headlines are recent, January or February,  and I included dates with all of them.     All these articles made me ask a few  questions. First, what are all of these people planning on doing with these devices? They obviously have some sort of plan for these or they wouldn’t have made them. Secondly, If these are the people getting busted, then how many are out there not getting caught? I have a feeling that it is like pot grow houses; There are 1000 operating for everyone that gets caught.  Lastly who’s side are they on? I suspect that both sides are laying plans right now.       Now everyone has been waiting for the shit to hit the proverbial fan and I think it is starting. (I also lost  power in my neighborhood a couple of hours ago and had to go scope it out and see if it was widespread or local, if that gives you any insight)  Most people expect the scenario to come suddenly in one fell poop (Sorry, couldn’t help it,part of me never got out of the 7th grade) but history shows otherwise.    There is always a series of events that lead up to it. Those events don’t just happen; They shape and change the climate and bring about other events. It was a full decade between the Boston massacre and the first shots of the revolution, but the massacre inexorably set us on the course to a full scale shooting war.     It is not only  events either that bring revolutions on either , but ideas, opinions and feelings. We humans are not only smart, we are also an emotional lot. Make us feel like we are being oppressed and you will piss us off. Piss us off enough and we will revolt. An affidavit from John Parker follows:

I, John Parker, of lawful Age, and Commander of the Militia in Lexington, do testify and declare, that on the 19th Instant in the Morning, about one of the Clock, being informed that there were a Number of Regular Officers, riding up and down the Road, stopping and insulting People as they passed the Road; and also was informed that a Number of Regular Troops were on their March from Boston in order to take the Province Stores at Concord, ordered our Militia to meet on the Common in said Lexington to consult what to do, and concluded not to be discovered, nor meddle or make with said Regular Troops (if they should approach) unless they should insult or molest us; and, upon their sudden Approach, I immediately ordered our Militia to disperse, and not to fire:–Immediately said Troops made their appearance and rushed furiously, fired upon, and killed eight of our Party without receiving any Provocation therefor from us.

John Parker.

Did you catch the line”not to make or meddle with said regular troops (if they should approach) unless they should insult or molest us”  What? You are 38 men lined up on the green facing 700 British soldiers and if you are insulted you are ready to fight?   ( After you conveniently put yourselves there)    Yeah, that is me and probably you, We have had enough, been pushed back enough and now, refuse to give another inch. Not one more assault on our rights and freedoms, this is it, take us off the burner we are done.  We are ready to form that thin line on the green , out numbered more than 15 to 1.     You see , we feel oppressed, we feel the tyranny that has been creeping in for decades has finally reached the breaking point and when we feel that way, the  Brits should be frightened, we are feeling emotional.                There are others it seems that are also forming their own lines. Who’s side they are on, I can’t know, but it seems that there are a lot of them and they are listed below. I pulled some examples but there are many others out there. I think that the S is already HTF they just don’t know it yet; And neither do we .

“There is nothing that a fanatic will not do to achieve his goal: the end justifies the use of ANY means. There are some things which those who are not fanatical will refuse to do in defense of their ideals, even at the cost of their lives

They say that survival at ANY price is the be-all and the end-all of existence have in effect capitulated to the fanatics who are unafraid to die. As a morality, this view is contemptible; as a strategy it is unimtelligent. It is morally contemptible because those who endorse it will swallow any infamy in order to live a life unworthy of man. It is unintelligent because the only thing which can restrain fanatics is fear of failure. Even Hitler probably would have kept the peace had he known or feared his aggression meant destruction for his cause. Where fanatics have no fear of failure, the liklihood is that in their insanity they will destroy themselves in fanatical war against other fanatics. In that case, those who have sacrificed integrity for life will have lost their lives, too.”  Sydney Hook

The waiting game

Everyone waits.  Time moves like a dripping faucet, every moment suspended temporarily. Waiting , waiting …Drip. We have a lot hanging in the balance. Our lives, our families, our livelihoods, our very freedom.    It is like being on that adrenalin rush in the middle of action; Everything is slowed to a crawl except for you. Objects flying past,  things tipping and rolling,  and you can just step out of the way. You are fluid, given grace that only exists in this world.  Sound is on temporary suspension, you see the flash but don’t really hear the noise. Your ears don’t even ring.    Now we watch, liberty and freedom fleeting. Step by step.  We wonder ; Is this what it was like in Germany or Russia? Events traveling by , out of our control and all we can do is watch; Watch and wait.   The ones who are actually supposed to be in control and can actually do something about it don’t seem to care. All they want to do is politic, not realizing that the time for politicking is past. They talk about things like “Imperial presidency”, they mention “Impeach” but sound is on temporary suspension, their words are meaningless without action. They are as much of the problem as any: All they want is their turn.   So we watch and we wait and we wonder; What if we wait too long?  I don’t have an answer on the time. All I know, is when they show up at your door, you waited too long.

Arming for war

Luckily for me, I had a little foresight and bought early and bought often. I was getting cases of 1160 Rds. of  7.62 x 39 delivered for 180 bucks and 1000 Rd. cases of .30 carbine for $110.00.   You could chalk it up to my superior intellect and analytical skills, or my gifted powers of divination, or possibly my acute paranoia, as I have actually been wanting to stock to the level of ammo I have since 1992.  Personally I think it is my superior intellect, but we can argue that later.     Unfortunately many people have not been as lucky as I have been , be it for financial reasons or otherwise. Now they are in a real jam if they want ammo.(Or need ammo,depending on how acute their paranoia is) I know someone in North Carolina who can’t get 5.56 up there so he shopped stores here in Florida. His daughter found him a deal; 1000 Rds. of 5.56 x 45 for $1140.00 plus the cost to ship it up to him. That’s right, $1.14 a Rd. plus shipping. This isn’t some exotic round or .338 Lapua magnum, this is 5.56.   This latest gun rush is like nothing I’ve ever seen before and I have seen a few in my time . In ’08 through ’10 the firearms manufacturers were pushed to their production limits and beyond,but a lot of that was pistol sales; People were arming for personal defense. In ’94 when the  federal assault weapons ban or the ” Public safety and recreational firearms use protection act ” was passed, most people were buying junk to mid grade stuff. They were buying a lot of $175.00 to $350.00 AK pattern stuff,  as that was the evil of it’s day; Buy early and buy often.        I knew people who were sitting on 10 to 12 AKs. I knew a LOT of people who were  sitting on 3 to 4.  They were mainly being bought as investments as everyone knew the price was going to go up; Cheap investment on a cool and popular item with a big return. What the hell if you didn’t sell them then you had 3 or 4 AKs to work on. Who could complain about that? { Besides your wife,who gave up the fence around the back yard for that. )     Therein lies the difference; This time around people are dropping anywhere from 2 to 4 grand on tricked out AR15s with Trijicon or Eotech sights, fully battle ready. People are paying $1.14 a Rd. for 5.56 and they can’t keep it on the shelves. This isn’t investment time here. In ’08 through ’10 there were wars and rumors of war…. Wait wrong story… Everyone was nervous, there were rumors of financial collapse, riots, chaos, and personal defense weapons were the rage  In ,94 there were some of us awake to what was going on, but for the most part buying was getting it before it’s banned or investment.     Now it’s different . People are willing to pay big money for top shelf weapons and any kind of ammo. Anything remotely military is sold out, right down to cheap and easy guns like the m98 Mauser, a bolt action accurate as hell rifle over 100 years old. People this time are arming for war. The speak is Molon Labe as opposed to buy it before it’s banned. There is a completely different tenor in the country.You don’t pay $3800.00 for a rifle to have it taken away.  There is an undertone of rebellion building as trucks bring weapons and ammo to households across the nation. We are a nation preparing for war.  We are arming as fast as we can . It’s starting to feel like the build up to Lexington and concord.    All I can say is, “may  providence guide us.”     If you haven’t read your history lately re-read the history of the battles of Lexington and Concord.Even though it is from Wikipedia it is an outstanding article. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battles_of_Lexington_and_Concord
