The picture is coming into focus

Let's take a trip down memory lane, on April 7, 2009 the Department of Homeland Security issued an unclassified report titled (link embedded below):

This report caused an uproar on many of it's findings but the one that came out as the most radical and disturbing was -- "(U//FOUO) Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to rightwing extremists. DHS/I&A is concerned that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to boost their violent capabilities."
As you are aware, the Democrats (and I mean only the Democrats) across the country, at all levels of County, City, State and Federal are pushing to disarm us.  Some of those who are spearheading this since the Newton tragedy are ambiguous and deceitful about their true aims, but some are blatant in their opinion that time has come for Americans to give up their arms, Constitution be damned.
Now, I find the next news item very disturbing indeed -- The Veterans Administration is sending out scores of letters to Veterans telling them they are "ineligible" to posses or own firearms because they have been "proposed finding of incompetency"!
The incompetency can either be of physical or mental disability as there is no clear delineation of the policy at VA describing just what "incompetency" means. 

I went back and re-read the DHS memo (linked above) and quickly came to the realization that everything in this report will become a "self fulfilling prophecy"!

Knock, Knock

Who's there?

State Police, open up we are here to inspect your home for weapons!

This scenario was just averted, for now, in the State of Washington. 

According to WND -- "Senate Bill 5737 states: “In order to continue to possess an assault weapon that was legally possessed on the effective date of this section, the person possessing shall … safely and securely store the assault weapon. The sheriff of the county may, no more than once per year, conduct an inspection to ensure compliance with this subsection.”

Failure to comply could result in a year in jail.

The liberal "Seattle Times" reporter inquired with one of the bill sponsor's about this provision in the law being considered and guess what, he got a Nanci Pelosi line of "he didn’t know the bill authorized police searches.

“I made a mistake,” Adam Kline said. “I frankly should have vetted this more closely.”

The prime sponsor, Sen. Ed Murray, D-Seattle, confessed it’s probably unconstitutional.

“I have to admit that shouldn’t be in there,” Murray said.

Murray explained to Westneat he came to realize an assault-weapons ban has little chance of passing this year, so he inserted the provision as “a general statement, as a guiding light of where we need to go.”

Monson said one of his listeners received a reply from another sponsor, Democratic Sen. Jeannie Kohl-Welles, who called the provision “an error in the preparation of the bill.”

She said that if she had known it was in the bill, she wouldn’t have signed on as a sponsor.

“Of course I should have read the bill in its entirety prior to signing onto it; however, I received a briefing on it without mention of the warrantless search language,” the lawmaker said.

Once again Democrats, who are aligned against the US Constitution, have said they didn't read the bill before attempting to pass it.  I remember Pelosi, during the Obamacare bill passage, told reporters when asked if she even read the bill, stated "we will have to find out what's in it after we sign it into law"!  Again, how are these elitist yahoo's even in office after they take an oath to uphold and defend the constitution?

Why we need 2nd Amendment

First, notice the willingness of the criminal to open fire first.  The purposeful determination of the criminal to employ deadly force.  The security guard, who was shot during the attempted robbery (and murder), would not have the ability to have this AR-15 if Obama and the Democrats have their way.

The dangers of political correctness

Dr. Benjamin Carson has become a celebrity overnight after his speech at the "National Prayer Breakfast" in which a sullen Obama sat just mere feet from the man who would have the courage to punch holes through the One and his policies. 

Dr. Carson had, as one of his theme's, the danger of political correctness as a direct impediment to the constitutional right to free speech. 

Ft. Hood shooter

It can be rightfully argued that political correctness directly contributed to the death of 13 people at Ft. Hood at the hands of an Army Psychiatrist, Nidal Hasan.  It was discovered, prior to the rampage at the base, that Hasan had communications with Anwar al-Awlaki and wrote "I cannot wait to join you" (in the afterlife).  As we now know, it was al-Awlaki who, along with his 16 year old Denver, Colorado born son died in a drone strike given by Obama in spite that both al-Awlaki's were American citizens for which I will get into a little later.

In spite of the communications with terror suspects, Hasans' direct superiors, out of political correctness not only ignored these warning bells prior to his own terror strike but promoted him upward.  To add insult to injury the final report from the commission investigating the "how and why" of Hasan they concluded that the action of Hasan was an "act of workplace violence".

If this egregious act of political correctness wasn't enough of a slap in the face to the members of the fallen Ft. Hood family as the characterization of the attack cut them off from any compensations they would have received if it was an act of terror, the trial has been delayed indefinitely due to Hasan's refusal to shave his beard due to religious reasons.

Now, back to the American citizen al-Awlaki whom Hasan communicated with and that assassination.  Don't get me wrong, I think that the drone strike that killed these American Citizens were a fitting end to their budding terror careers overseas and they rightly deserved it.  The problem that I wish to highlite here is reconciling the Democrats view and ardent stance with giving non-American terror suspects due process rights in our courts.  The drone strike itself was not in any shape or form considered in the context of due process as it was Obama and Obama alone who felt he has the power, not the courts or some form of oversight to his decision to kill this terror suspect as the arbiter of justice.  How is it that Democrats can remain silent when al-Awlaki was denied due process rights, after all, he was even an American citizen who by law should have had them, in their warped sense of reality?  Where is the ACLU? 

We now have learned that drones are now employed, on US Soil, to hunt the LAPD officer who is currently eluding capture for 3 murders in the Los Angeles area.  The question is, if the drones manage to get this crazed individual in it's cross hairs, will they launch a strike against him prior to any court appearances that may or may not find him guilty or innocent?  In other words, due process.

I could go on and on with examples of dangerous political correctness killing Americans through the effects of the beast, but the biggest danger of all is how Obama has eluded scrutiny of HIS actions through the cover of PCism.  That chapter is still being written.

Nugent to attend Obama State of the Union address

Rep. Steve Stockman has given on of his "gallery visitor" passes to the State of the Union address to Ted Nugent.  It will be interesting to see if he actually makes it into the building as the Secret Service has investigated Nugent on a prior perceived threat to the President.

"during a National Rifle Association meeting in St. Louis, Nugent rallied support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and said of the Obama administration: "We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November." He also said he would be "dead or in jail by this time next year" if Obama is re-elected." -- Washington Times

The Secret Service, of course, closed it's investigation of Nugent after a short interview.  It is quite humerous that the imagery/metaphor that Nugent used above is almost exactly what "Rahm Deadfish Emanual" was famous for uttering at that dinner when he was plotting against his political rivals.

Pro 2nd Amendment Mayor -- Oak Harbor, WA

City Council attempts to confiscate gun from conceled carry veteran during open hearing seeking to pass ban on guns.  This mayor, as well as the majority of Council members, should be congratulated for their support of their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.  Notice the liberal hatred of this veteran and his conceled weapon.

Our Mission

Missions include preventing terrorism and enhancing security; managing our borders; administering immigration laws; securing cyberspace; and ensuring disaster resilience. -- Department of Homeland Security

Administer Immigration Laws -- Department bears responsibility for facilitating legal immigration and enforcing laws. Supports legal employment by offering information and expanding E-Verify program.

Securing and Managing our borders -- Our mission is to secure our borders. We are using technology, manpower and physical infrastructure to improve operational control of our borders.   US Government stockpiles billions of rounds of "hollow point" ammunition which is ironically banned by the Geneva Conventions.    Not only has the Social Security Administration purchased multi thousands of rounds of hollow point bullets but so have the Department of Homeland Security and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Sources have further indicated that ammunition and firearms have been delivered to multiple agencies of the federal government, including the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Education, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Internal Revenue Service, among others.

Joseph Farah at World Net Daily poses an ominous question:

"Why does the civilian Department of Homeland Security need billions of rounds of ammunition?

This is the agency that is responsible for policing the border. But it doesn’t.

This is the agency that is responsible for catching terrorists. But it doesn’t.

So why does Homeland Security need so many weapons and enough hollow-point rounds to plug every American six times?"
In the past several weeks we have seen the following Obama Cabinet members resign:

Hillary Clinton (Secretary of State)- replaced by Senate Confirmed John Kerry who provided aid and comfort to the enemy during the Vietnam war. 

Leon Panetta (US Defense Secretary) - Chuck Hagel currently attending Senate Confirmation hearings for the job.  There have been serious concerns about Hagel as the civilian leader of our Armed Forces.  It is obvious that Obama chose this man carefully and fully understood that the Senate would have a hard time confirming him to replace Panetta.  What would happen if the Secretary of Defence position languishes without a leader?

The Deputy Secretary, Ashton Carter would assume responsibilities as the #2?  According to -- By Bryan Bender, Globe Staff

WASHINGTON -- President Obama late this afternoon nominated Harvard professor Ashton B. Carter, a leading authority on arms control, to take on a surprising new role, according to top administration officials -- as the Pentagon's chief weapons buyer.

The choice of Carter to run the office that oversees hundreds of billions of dollars for new weapons and research -- and the focus of intense lobbying by defense firms, retired generals, and members of Congress -- has been rumored for weeks. And word of his pending nomination has already sparked concern within the defense industry and some of the Pentagon bureaucracy.

The most intriguing aspect of Ashton Carter's career lies in his biography -- " In 2001-2002, he served on the National Academy of Sciences Committee on Science and Technology for Countering Terrorism and advised on the creation of the Department of Homeland Security."

Why am I rambling on about DHS?  In the same Joseph Farah article at WND, Farah brings us back to 2009 when Obama made the following statement:

"We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Now that DHS and other Federal agencies have enough weapons and ammunition stockpiled the assault on our 2nd Amendment rights have intensified.  Should we be worried?
