“America’s only remaining choices – civil disobedience or collapse”

This was written by Lawrence Sellin, PHD and it appears in Family Security Matters.

The United States no longer has, as the Constitution designed, a government composed of executive, legislative and judicial branches, separate, but equal in power.

The federal government is now an alliance of branches, devoted to the preservation of government itself, separate, not from each other, but from the American people and dedicated to tyranny.

The policies pursued by the Obama Administration and facilitated by cowardly politicians and a compliant media are not simply the intersection of radical ideology and incompetence, but a dangerous subversive element of an anti-American and anti-Western strategy.”


Obama’s transformation is fundamentally the degradation and humbling of a great nation he considers venal and corrupt, but is, in reality, merely a description of the content of his own character.

He and his present anointed successor and Mini Me, Hillary Clinton, are manifestations of modern-day, totalitarian Liberalism, in its insatiable thirst for power, where persuasion is replaced by coercion to implement policies that are inherently damaging to liberty and the national interest.

Unfortunately, the federal government, as an institution, has largely come to reflect those same characteristics, the tyranny that led the Founding Fathers to declare independence.

In their effort to make the central government “too big to fail,” the political-media complex has made it too corrupt to reform.

It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government – Thomas Paine”

Cloward, Meet Piven

“Wait What? DOJ To Fast Track Payout Of $29 Million To Families Of #Charleston Shooting Victims”

For the families of nine victims?

The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty”


That works out to about $3.2 million per family. Why is this huge amount coming out the taxpayers by route of the DOJ?”

The First Gay President Celebrates Gay Marriage Ruling With A Rainbow House


President Barack Obama said earlier Friday that the court ruling has “made our union a little more perfect.”

The colors illuminated the north side of the White House as Obama returned Friday evening from Charleston, South Carolina, where he delivered the eulogy of the funeral of Clementa Pinckney, one of nine people murdered in the massacre at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church last week.”

Justice Roberts Was Mistaken

justice roberts

He said this when he wrote the opinion that preserved Obamacare: “Congress passed ACA to improve insurance markets, not destroy them.” He was mistaken.

Congress did not intend to help the health insurance market. They meant to destroy it. It’s working, too.

Consider how they regulated insurance carriers. They are forced to cover existing conditions. Uninsured people are allowed to purchase insurance after they discover they have life-threatening conditions.

Insurance companies are restricted in how much they can charge as premiums.

The Obamacare website has never worked properly and is not secure. If you signed up your medical and financial information is available to bad guys.

Obamacare ‘Navigators’ are not vetted, allowing criminals to help those wanting insurance. They will have intimate access to those people’s files.

Sen. Harry Reid said, “Obamacare ‘Absolutely’ A Step Toward A Single-Payer System”. He, of all people should know what the plan was.

In the ACA there is a part that allows people having trouble getting insurance to sign up for Medicaid. That system, like Medicare, is a single-payer system.

The regulations on insurers are getting more stringent all the time. Many companies that formerly provided health insurance are opting out of Obamacare. That will continue, I believe, until there are no insurers left in the system. Then the single-payer system will be the only option offerred.


“Roberts to Teach Creative Writing Class”


justice roberts 2

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will begin teaching creative writing at Accidental University in California beginning July 15th, according to a statement released Thursday by his office.

The statement actually said Roberts would start “July 14th,” but the chief justice’s office subsequently put out a clarification that the intent was to say “July 15th.”

The university is coincidentally the alma mater of President Barack Obama, who is an Accidental graduate.”

Senator Ted Cruz Speaks For Americans

I hope he is right, that the 2016 election will be a referendum on Obamacare. I’m afraid, though, that the fix is in. Between giving the right to vote to illegals, dead people, the right to multiple ballots to some, and the tampering with voting machines, the public sentiment will have to be strong indeed to prevail.

The Supreme Court willfully ignored the words that Congress wrote, and instead read into the law their preferred policy outcome,” Mr. Cruz said. “These judges have joined with President Obama in harming millions of Americans.”

He continued, “Those justices are not behaving as umpires calling balls and strikes. They have joined a team, and it is a team that is hurting Americans across this country.”

Mr. Cruz said the 2016 election will be a referendum on Obamacare, which he said is hurting millions of Americans.”

Why White Supremacists OVERWHELMINGLY voted to elect Barack Hussein Obama to the Presidency (Part One)

BUMPED from it’s original publication date of March 7th 2010…

A worthwhile read republished in advance of the Supreme Court rulings that will be coming down later this week and the Eulogy that President Obama intends to deliver in Charleston when he will no doubt lecture us all on our evil racism. It makes a very interesting read these 5 Years later now that the President and his Administration has proven themselves to be the most powerful and disruptive Racists in American History. When their time in office finally expires it may also be accurate to refer to them as the most deadly Racists in American History as well.

I’m getting a real kick out of the level of sensitivity expressed in the communication of this publication that is over 5 Years old now. Wow, I was really going out of the way to not be offensive. How naïve of me. I doubt that I will make that same mistake twice.


Yes, this may come as a surprise to many, especially those in the Obama Administration, Jimmy Carter, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, the NAACP, ACLU, Coffee Party and the Mainstream Media…

The piece I am now attempting to present has been the most exhausting writing I have done in a while. This is my third attempt. Other times when I have tried this I was angry. When I wasn’t angry anything I wrote didn’t communicate effectively. More than that, it’s a tedious topic filled with taboo subject matter and sometimes trying to run between the raindrops without getting wet just makes for confusion and exhaustion. Thusly, this is a piece that I could never finish. I don’t even know if I will finish it now but if you are reading these words then yes I did.

Remember Glen Doherty?

Doherty was one of four men killed during the attack on the US compound in Benghazi in September, 2012.



While looking over an old, 2011 issue of American Rifleman I found an ad for a book that he co-wrote with former Navy Seal Brandon Webb. The book is titled ’21st Century American Sniper’.

21st century sniper

Amazon has the book. They also have another book done by Webb and Doherty titled ‘Navy Seal Sniper’.

navy seal sniper

Now I may have been living in a cave somewhere but I didn’t know these men wrote these books. Perhaps some of you didn’t either.

From the comments section at Amazon I learned this:

This is a fantastic read, I highly recommend purchasing this book to everyone!! Half of the profits go directly to Glen Doherty’s estate. That is reason enough to purchase this book!”

President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton let the Americans die in Benghazi. For nothing. We should remember and honor them.

Soop Says The Obama Administration Is ” idiotic and utterly incompetent”…

… I think they did it intentionally, like allowing Iran to have the bomb. The administration Granted Access to IT people from other countries including China. They knew that that access would lead to hacking.

Actually, it’s not hacking if you have legitimate access. What would you call it? Sharing?

This administration allowed people from other countries to have full access to personal details of all federal workers. Some are calling this an act of war. Jonah Goldberg calls it a ‘Cyber Pearl Harbor’. He wants to know why none in the media are covering it. We know, though. They are covering again for Obama.

Unbelievable: Gov’t Outsourced Database Management to IT Workers With TOTAL ACCESS… in CHINA

The technical details are a little difficult here so let’s put it this way – idiotic and utterly incompetent government officials outsourced IT management of highly sensitive information to companies that had some workers in China, and gave them complete and total access to that database.

“Time Is Like a River – And It Has Flowed Beyond Our Reach”

“Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice in the same place, because the flow that has passed will never pass again… Franklin Graham was speaking at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida in January, 2015 when he said “America will not come back.””

He also wrote:

The American Dream ended (on November 6th, 2012 ) in Ohio.

The second term of Barack Obama will be the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind.

A Coalition of Blacks [black only organizations], Latinos, Feminists, Gays , Government Workers, Union Members, Environmental Extremists, The Media, Hollywood , uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell ‘s America .

The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch… The Pit Bull is in the back yard. The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky ‘s “Rules for Radicals” and Chicago shyster, David Axelrod , along with international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the strings on their beige puppet to bring us Act 2 of the New World Order.

Our side ran two candidates who couldn’t even win their own home states, and Chris Christie helped Obama over the top with a glowing “post Sandy ” tribute that elevated the
“Commander-in-Chief” to Mother Teresa status. (Aside: with the way the polls were run, he didn’t need any help!) People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will never again comment on or concern myself with the afore mentioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.

You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take Zealots, not moderates & shy not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status. Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to “white guilt” and political correctness…”


The above article was written by an American Veteran who knows all too well the agony of war, and knows further, that many in this country will taste it before, and if ever, we can enjoy what our Forefathers left in our keeping.”

Designed To Intimidate: “Obama’s Gun Speech Gag Order Is Retaliation Against Group That Sued The Gov’t Last Month”

A few days ago we reported on the Obama administrations to stop internet discussion of guns. Now, it seems, we learn what was behind the action. This comes from the State department but they are an arm of the administration.


The Obama administration’s latest anti-gun salvo isn’t about reducing gun violence or stopping the export of dangerous weapons, it’s about pure retaliation against a non-profit that sued the government in federal court last month.

Defense Distributed, a pro-Second Amendment non-profit organization that provides blueprints, plans, and machinery to fabricate or finish firearm components, has been at war with the State Department for nearly two years.

According to a complaint it filed in federal court last month, the organization began to make its data, compiled entirely from publicly available information, available for free on the Internet in December of 2012. Just a few months later, in May of 2013, Defense Distributed received a letter from the State Department alleging that the group was illegally exporting technical data. The federal government then demanded, in contravention of long-standing policy dating back to 1984, that Defense Distributed submit its proposed speech to the federal government for pre-approval.

You read that right: the Obama administration demanded that a pro-Second Amendment non-profit submit its proposed speech, consisting of publicly available information, to the federal government for approval prior to publishing.”

Which is exactly what they are now proposing for everyone on every blog and website on the internet. They demand that any firearms related content be submitted to them for approval before publication.

I have read the First Amendment a few times and somehow I missed this restriction on it.

BATF To Reclassify AR And AK Pistols As NFA Items

Until now these pistols were classed as legal pistols by the ATF and did not get classification under the National Firearms Act as ‘Destructive Devices’. They had to be originally built as pistols and not converted from rifles. If they were converted they were classed as short barreled rifles and became ‘NFA Destructive Devices’. This ruling will change all that.

ar pistol

This is from Lock and Load Radio. They have a link the ATF proposal. As the proposal comes from the office of the President, what it looks like is President Obama is directing BATFE to do this.

He has directed his anti-gun leaders at the DOJ and ATF to reclassify AR/AK Pistols as an NFA item. See new rule here.

What does this mean? Well, as we all know, or in case you don’t, an NFA item is highly regulated by the ATF. The NFA was originally enacted in 1934. Similar to the current NFA, the original Act imposed a tax on the making and transfer of firearms defined by the Act, as well as a special (occupational) tax on persons and entities engaged in the business of importing, manufacturing, and dealing in NFA firearms. The law also required the registration of all NFA firearms with the Secretary of the Treasury. Firearms subject to the 1934 Act included shotguns and rifles having barrels less than 18 inches in length, certain firearms described as “any other weapons,” machineguns, and firearm mufflers and silencers. As it is described on the ATF’s website,

While the NFA was enacted by Congress as an exercise of its authority to tax, the NFA had an underlying purpose unrelated to revenue collection. As the legislative history of the law discloses, its underlying purpose was to curtail, if not PROHIBIT, transactions in NFA firearms”.

What do they intend to do about the thousands, perhaps millions, of these pistols already in private hands? Will they be made illegal after the fact? Will citizens who bought pistols that were perfectly legal at the time of purchase now be classed as felons? Do they intend to round up all the pre-NFA pistols?


“Isis’s dirty bomb: Jihadists have seized ‘enough radioactive material to build their first WMD'”

Now there’s a specter, a nuclear-armed Islamic State.

Julie Bishop, Australia's Minister for Foreign Affairs

Julie Bishop, Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs

The Isis militant group has seized enough radioactive material from government facilities to suggest it has the capacity to build a large and devastating “dirty” bomb, according to Australian intelligence reports.

Isis declared its ambition to develop weapons of mass destruction in the most recent edition of its propaganda magazine Dabiq, and Indian defence officials have previously warned of the possibility the militants could acquire a nuclear weapon from Pakistan.

According to the Australian foreign minister, Julie Bishop, Nato has expressed deep concerns about the materials seized by Isis from research centres and hospitals that would normally only be available to governments.”

This is from the UK Independent

If that’s not enough, they say they have enough money to buy a nuke from Pakistan:

Apocalypse Now: ISIS Establishing Nuclear Caliphate

In the latest edition of its propaganda rag, the Islamic State says it has enough cash to buy a nuclear weapon from Pakistan and smuggle it into the U.S. through Mexico. This is the sum of all fears, and it’s not overblown.

The new issue of “Dabiq,” IS’ English-language webzine, includes a chilling article, “The Perfect Storm,” that claims the group has amassed enough funds to purchase a “nuclear device” from Pakistan.

“The Islamic State has billions of dollars in the bank, so they call on their wilayah (province) in Pakistan to purchase a nuclear device through weapons dealers with links to corrupt officials in the region,” the magazine says. The weapon could be smuggled through drug-running routes from Islamist-controlled Nigeria to Central America to Mexico “and into the U.S.,” it adds.”

This story is from Investor’s Business Daily

We have reported that Saudi Arabia is buying nukes from Pakistan so this should not be a surprise.


Zerohedge: “Obama Goes Full Stalin: Tells Secret Court To Ignore Law He Signed 4 Hours Earlier, Extend Illegal NSA Surveillance”

If you want to read it all go here.

Just when we thought the absurdity that marks every single day of Obama’s reign could not possibly be surpassed, we learned that 4 hours (3 hours and 47 minutes to be precise) after the US president vowed to sign a new law banning bulk data collection by the NSA (named, for purely grotesque reasons, the “USA Freedom Act”), the Obama administration asked the secret Fisa surveillance court to ignore a federal court that found bulk surveillance illegal and to once again grant the National Security Agency the power to collect the phone records of millions of Americans for six months.”


According to Ackerman, this latest travesty by the administration “suggests that the administration may not necessarily comply with any potential court order demanding that the collection stop.”

Or, in other words, the administration “may” give orders that openly flaunt US laws.”


Obama Intends To Make Discussion Of Gun-Related Stuff Illegal On This Blog

This blog and every other.


Even as news reports have been highlighting the gun control provisions of the Administration’s “Unified Agenda” of regulatory objectives (see accompanying story), the Obama State Department has been quietly moving ahead with a proposal that could censor online speech related to firearms. This latest regulatory assault, published in the June 3 issue of the Federal Register, is as much an affront to the First Amendment as it is to the Second. Your action is urgently needed to ensure that online blogs, videos, and web forums devoted to the technical aspects of firearms and ammunition do not become subject to prior review by State Department bureaucrats before they can be published.”

They’re serious, too. They say that any gun-related posts must be pre-approved by them.

With the new proposal published on June 3, the State Department claims to be “clarifying” the rules concerning “technical data” posted online or otherwise “released” into the “public domain.” To the contrary, however, the proposal would institute a massive new prior restraint on free speech. This is because all such releases would require the “authorization” of the government before they occurred. The cumbersome and time-consuming process of obtaining such authorizations, moreover, would make online communication about certain technical aspects of firearms and ammunition essentially impossible.

Penalties for violations are severe and for each violation could include up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million. Civil penalties can also be assessed. Each unauthorized “export,” including to subsequent countries or foreign nationals, is also treated as a separate violation.”

Obama Has Created A ‘Catch-22′ Situation On Purpose

Catch-22: n. noun
1. A situation in which a desired outcome or solution is impossible to attain because of a set of inherently contradictory rules or conditions.
2. A contradictory or self-defeating course of action.
3. A tricky or disadvantageous condition; a catch.”

He says “We don’t yet have a complete strategy” to defeat ISIS. Any thinking person knows the Pentagon has a thousand plans. That’s what they do. The truth is he will not approve any of them. And he blames that on the planners there in an effort to deflect blame.

He doesn’t want to send troops in to fight them. He wants Iraqi troops to do the fighting but he knows they won’t. History has proved that. Even if they outnumber the ISIS troops ten to one they will cut and run, leaving behind their weapons and materiel.

Perhaps his strategy is to arm the Islamic State. Perhaps he supports the new ‘Caliphate’.


“White House denies Obama said strong dollar a problem”

Do you believe Anything that comes out of the White House any more?

President Obama spoke to the G7 meeting in Germany. People who were there reported he said during his speech that a strong dollar is a problem. Any one who was there and heard his speech is an eye witness. There will probably be a video of the speech that will eventually show up. There should be but it hasn’t shown up yet. That’s odd.

Bloomberg News earlier quoted a French official as saying Obama had made the comment.

“The President did not state that the strong dollar was a problem,” the U.S. official said.”

“Denver school board members get a taste of Michelle O lunches”

Brilliant. Send administrators to eat at the school cafeteria once or twice a month.

That really looks like a bad lunch. They say the milk was out of date, too.



School district administrators in Denver recently got a taste of what students have been complaining about: a school lunch with a cold chicken patty on a rock-hard burnt bun, frozen strawberries and a “really hard” pear.

That was the meal served to school board member Rosemary Rodriguez at Kepner Middle School in Denver May 12, after Kepner student Stephanie Torres took her complaints about the food to the school board, reports.

Aside from the unappetizing offerings, the cafeteria at Kepner ran out of at least one food item during the visit, which also included representatives from Padres & Jovenes Unidos – a social services organization.”

“Team Obama Readies More Gun Control Regulations”

gun control works

The Justice Department plans to move forward this year with more than a dozen new gun-related regulations, according to list of rules the agency has proposed to enact before the end of the Obama administration.

The regulations range from new restrictions on high-powered pistols to gun storage requirements. Chief among them is a renewed effort to keep guns out of the hands of people who are mentally unstable or have been convicted of domestic abuse.

Gun safety advocates have been calling for such reforms since the Sandy Hook school shooting nearly three years ago in Newtown, Conn. They say keeping guns away from dangerous people is of primary importance.

But the gun lobby contends that such a sweeping ban would unfairly root out a number of prospective gun owners who are not a danger to society.

“It’s clear President Obama is beginning his final assault on our Second Amendment rights by forcing his anti-gun agenda on honest law-abiding citizens through executive force,” said Luke O’Dell, vice president of political affairs at the National Association for Gun Rights.”
