The Obama administration has targeted Colorado in their efforts to take guns out of the hands of Americans, law abiding and otherwise. Colorado Democrats voted to move bills to reduce the size of magazines among other measures out of the House and into the Democrat controlled Senate. Democrat Governor Hickenlooper supports the bills in principal.
Democrats are apparently getting “marching orders from President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, who called House Democrats the night they were debating gun bills on the floor and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who leads Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” says Senate Minority leader Bill Cadman.
Republican lawmakers in Colorado say they want the White House to stay out of their state battle over gun control, accusing Vice President Biden of personally leaning on Democratic legislators for their votes in a tight campaign that could change the national conversation on gun rights.
Republican state Rep. Carole Murray told FoxNews.com she doesn’t appreciate “East Coast politics” interfering in her state.
The concern comes ahead of a tense Senate vote — which could come late next week — and after a vote in the House that prompted the White House to take the unusual step of lobbying wavering Democrats. Biden’s office confirmed to FoxNews.com he made four phone calls to Colorado Democrats, two in moderate districts, but did not say what they were about.
Multiple sources, though, tell FoxNews.com that about eight hours into last week’s 12-hour House debate, Biden called Democrats Mark Ferrandino, Mike McLachlan, Tony Exum and Dominick Moreno to solidify support for the measures and to “remind them about the importance of the legislation.”
One can only imagine the promises made or the threats given to these state politicians.
Colorado was targeted by the White House knowing that if they can get measures passed in the Democrat controlled State where guns are part of its history and sport it can advance its agenda throughout the country.
One problem is that they are interferring with hunters ability to participate in sport they love. CBS4 in Denver is reporting:
A popular hunting shotgun could be banned under one of the bills moving through the state Capitol.
A pump or semi-automatic shotgun is the gun most hunters in Colorado use. It’s a gun state Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, says could be banned under a bill that’s already passed the House and Gov. John Hickenlooper says he’ll sign.
“They’re coming after the standard shotgun,” Brophy told CBS4 Political Specialist Shaun Boyd.
Colorado may get what it deserved after voting in these Marxist jackasses but there are plenty of states where the 2nd Amendment will not be budged. In fact, I wonder what will happen to all these liberals in 2014 in the states that try to circumvent the rights of the 2nd Amendment. I have a suspicion that gun control might be the the end of numerous gun grabber careers as plenty of folks in this country enjoy their gun rights.
It really is a simple choice. President Obama has let you know *precisely* his inclinations. He is a communist. In his own words:
“Too many folks still don’t have a sense that tomorrow will be better than today. And so, the question in this election is which way do we go?” President Obama asked at a fundraiser in Chicago on Sunday.
“Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?” Obama asked. “Or do we go backward to the same policies that got us in the mess in the first place?”
You have another choice if communism is not your bag. Rep. Paul Ryan laid it out perfectly:
“America, America is just more than a place, though. America is an idea. It’s the only country founded on an idea. Our rights come from nature and God, not from government. That’s right. That’s who we are, that’s how we built this country. That’s who we are. That’s what made us great. That’s what made us great. We promise equal opportunity, not equal outcomes,” Ryan said.
Pretty simple Americans.
Yes I realize that Ryan is the GOP-VP choice. Yes Obama is running for President. But the ideology of both election camps could not be any starker.
BTW – most Americans missed Obama’s Marxist bent last week when he proclaimed that he’d like to bail out all industries.
“I said, I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back,” he said. “Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry.
I absolutely dread a second Obama term.
I desperately love Independence Day. It is a favorite holiday only rivaled in my adoration by the day we recognize the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I love God. I love my country.
Our independence from the tyranny that was England during the colonial days of this great nation is one of the greatest events in world history. Many on the left who have little affinity for this nation try to whitewash the history of the founding of this country. The textbooks that are given to students are a poor historical reference of our founding.
Today we live under another tyranny of our own making. We forget the lessons of our forefathers. Benjamin Franklin doubted we could keep our liberty. Someone asked him after the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 if the founders had given us a monarchy or republic (NOT a FUCKING democracy dammit). He replied, “a Republic, if you can keep it.”
Clearly we could not. The country that our fore fathers gave us is hanging by a thread. We are probably delusional to think that it is even hanging by a thread. Statism from Woodrow Wilson, FDR, LBJ, George W. Bush and Barack Hussein Obama has destroyed anything resembling the country they envisioned. As Thomas Jefferson wrote, “The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.” America, you have proven Mr. Jefferson correct.
Congratulations progressive assholes. You have voted for yourself power and money that will be the downfall of this country. As Alexander Hamilton so ruefully noted, “A fondness for power is implanted, in most men, and it is natural to abuse it, when acquired.” The American government is abusing its power in ways that would infuriate the colonists yet we sit idly by and let the government reign their tyranny on top of us.
Millions of leftists cheer this country’s demise. Fuck all of you. You have shit upon the very memories of the 56 brave and honorable men to whom promised their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor:
John Hancock. Button Gwinnett. Lyman Hall. George Walton. William Hooper. Joseph Hewes. John Penn. Edward Rutledge. Thomas Heyward Jr. Thomas Lynch Jr. Arthur Middleton. Samuel Chase. William Paca. Thomas Stone. Charles Carroll of Carrollton. George Wythe. Richard Henry Lee. Thomas Jefferson. Benjamin Harrison. Thomas Nelson, Jr. Francis Lightfoot Lee. Carter Braxton. Robert Morris. Benjamin Rush. Benjamin Franklin. John Morton. George Clymer. James Smith. George Taylor. James Wilson. George Ross. Caesar Rodney. George Read. Thomas McKean. William Floyd. Philip Livingston. Francis Lewis. Lewis Morris. Richard Stockton. John Witherspoon. Francis Hopkinson. John Hart. Abraham Clark. Josiah Bartlett. William Whipple. Samuel Adams. John Adams. Robert Treat Paine. Elbridge Gerry. Stephen Hopkins. William Ellery. Roger Sherman. Samual Huntington. William Williams. Oliver Wolcott. Matthew Thornton.
These men deserved better than what we have done to this country.
I went for a training ride this morning on my bike. Passing a gentleman arranging his flags at the end of his drive I yelled “happy 4th!” mindful of John Adams, after the Declaration, decree that:
“It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”
November 6 will be our chance to declare our independence from our tyrannical overlord, Obama and his flying monkeys. We won’t be completely free. We still have plenty to fight against in the alphabet soup of government tyranny: IRS, TSA, DHS, EPA, SWAT… The government soup bowl is full of nauseating letters.
I went to church today and was inspired by my priest’s sermon. He gets it. Everybody I came in contact with I reminded them of today by saying “happy 4th.” People responded. It’s still a wonderful day. I will continue the fight against tyrants, communists, progressives, socialists, Marxists and totalitarianism. I stand with many but a rising majority loves free shit and being told by the government what to do. They are freedom chicken-shits.
Independence Day has been perverted by the right and ignored by the left. The right uses it as an excuse to celebrate the military. The left supports tyranny. How can they support our Independence? If left to them they would prefer to lick the King’s boot while he gave them bread and allowed them to attend his circus.
Thomas DiLorenzo said it best, I think, in an article posted on Lew Rockwell:
If Americans ever began celebrating the real meaning of the Declaration of Independence, then they would embrace the Jeffersonian rights of secession and nullification as a means of fighting back against governmental tyranny. They would also withdraw their support for the U.S. government’s aggressive wars of imperialism in the Middle East and elsewhere, along with its hundreds of military bases on every continent on the planet. They might even begin an opposition to being plundered by the incredibly corrupt military/industrial/congressional complex and its main funding sources, the Fed and the income tax.
Happy Independence Day!
People in America don’t want to believe the country is becoming a police state. Those that are awake already know it is. You just have to open your eyes to see the tyranny growing around you. Ask any member of the herd about the TSA or drones or executive orders and they will more than likely say “but it’s for our safety”. We all know what Benjamin Franklin said about that so we won’t stop to rehash it.
You believe the government is there to protect you yet I would argue that it is now the single biggest threat to your well-being. I worry more about what the government is going to do to thwart my liberty and freedoms than about terrorism. Nay, I am far more scared of the U.S. government than I am of terrorists.
Jeff Thomas via Le Rockwell lists the following as evidence of a police state that could rival anything that Joseph Stalin would create:

Taken individually maybe you could see the mis-guided good intentions of each of these events. Together, the leviathan is a damn sure scary place to call home.
So says the classy executive director of the DNC, Patrick Gasbard, in a football spike of a tweet after the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare. The funny thing is they upheld the thing…as a tax. The very thing Obama said it never was. Have a GREAT time running on that narrative in November Dems.
Most on the right are kicking Chief Justice Roberts pretty hard in the nuts today as he was the swing vote in the whole fiasco. I dunno. He certainly could have made things easier if he had sided with the right but he pretty much handed the election to the Republicans in one fabulous vote. Remember what happened when Obamacare was the top issue during the 2010 elections?
Chief Justice reminded the people that it is “not our job to save the people from the consequences of their political choices.” True enough.
Not that a politician is ever honest but they should rename Obamacare, or (JOKE!) The Affordable Health Care Act, to what it is and has always been. Obama Healthcare Tax. You can bet the Republicans are going to be running on that little jewel.
I’m not sure why anyone would be gloating over paying more in taxes but the Democrats are sure enjoying the prospect. So let me anecdotally tell you how it will effect my family and me. You liberal assholes in Disney, we probably won’t be coming for a visit to your World next year. You liberal assholes in Hollywood, that is probably a few less movies we’ll partake of. You liberal assholes in Nashville, there will probably be less events we will come to. See, there is a trickle down effect. The less money you leave me the less I have left to spend. And I will surely not spend what remains on anything that benefits liberals if I can help it.
There are tons of commentary today and even more to come from this decision. So far the best of the lot has been a reasoned post from Eric Erickson at Red State.
…while Roberts has expanded the taxation power, which I don’t really think is a massive expansion from what it was, Roberts has curtailed the commerce clause as an avenue for Congressional overreach. In so doing, he has affirmed the Democrats are massive taxers. In fact, I would argue that this may prevent future mandates in that no one is going to go around campaigning on new massive tax increases. On the upside, I guess we can tax the hell out of abortion now. Likewise, in a 7 to 2 decision, the Court shows a strong majority still recognize the concept of federalism and the restrains of Congress in forcing states to adhere to the whims of the federal government.
Fourth, in forcing us to deal with this politically, the Democrats are going to have a hard time running to November claiming the American people need to vote for them to preserve Obamacare. It remains deeply, deeply unpopular with the American people. If they want to make a vote for them a vote for keeping a massive tax increase, let them try.
Fifth, the decision totally removes a growing left-wing talking point that suddenly they must vote for Obama because of judges. The Supreme Court as a November issue is gone.
Finally, while I am not down on John Roberts like many of you are today, i will be very down on Congressional Republicans if they do not now try to shut down the individual mandate. Force the Democrats on the record about the mandate. Defund Obamacare. This now, by necessity, is a political fight and the GOP sure as hell should fight.
60% of Americans agree with them on the issue. And guess what? The Democrats have been saying for a while that individual pieces of Obamacare are quite popular. With John Roberts’ opinion, the repeal fight takes place on GOP turf, not Democrat turf. The all or nothing repeal has always been better ground for the GOP and now John Roberts has forced everyone onto that ground. Oh, and as I mentioned earlier, because John Roberts concluded it was a tax, the Democrats cannot filibuster its repeal because of the same reconciliation procedure the Democrats used to pass it.
I’m disappointed that the Court ruled in favor of Obamacare. I’m tired of the politics. But it should make for one hell of an UGLY election this fall. It will be quite entertaining. And we’ll see once and for all what kind of country the people want. Tyranny or freedom. You get to decide. And you can’t blame the Court either way this time.
Our tyrant in charge, Obama, gets parodied to the theme of Dos Equis’ Most Interesting Man In The World. The Gateway Pundit via RightChange posted a humorous parody of our favorite fascist – The Most Arrogant Man in the World.
I spent the last few days in South Carolina’s low country. Family, sun and sand I was barely connected and was blissfully unaware of any of the utter garbage that went on in D.C., Europe or Wall Street. It was hardly a surprise coming home to find our dear leader deciding that he would implement the Dream Act without the people having their say through its lawfully elected representatives. Asshole Obama grants immunity to illegal alien children. He will simply bypass Congress and go through the Department of Homeland Security.
The Dream Act has repeatedly stalled in Congress. Obama had two years to get this thing passed in a Congress that was controlled by his party and couldn’t do it. Now he is simply going to wave his blessed hand and deem it so. The Hill via The Gateway Pundit reported:
The Obama administration announced Friday it will stop deporting illegal immigrants who come to the country at a young age.
The politically charged decision comes as Obama faces a tough reelection fight against Republican Mitt Romney, with Hispanic voters in swing states seen as a key bloc.
The change in policy could allow as many as 800,000 immigrants who came to the United States illegally not only to remain in the country without fear of being deported, but to work legally, according to a senior administration official speaking to reporters Friday.
Obama is set to make a statement at 1:15 p.m. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the new policy Friday morning.
“Young people who were brought to the United States through no fault of their own as children, who meet several key criteria, will no longer be removed from the country or entered into removal proceedings,” said Napolitano in a conference call with reporters on Friday morning.
You know, this fucking coward never does anything unless it is at the last moment on Friday. He is despicable.
“He’s not trying to get this through Congress. He is just, in a breakthrough fashion, seizing power,” Glenn told listeners. “This is exactly what a dictator does, not an American president. We are a constitutional republic. They don’t do that. He doesn’t have the ability. The Department of Homeland Security doesn’t have the authority to do this. Obama is now stopping all deportations for certain classes of illegal aliens. Essentially he is going to put in place the DREAM Act without dealing with the hassles of debating it, voting it, discussing it, even writing an executive order. He’s just doing it.”[...]
“It’s not even executive order,” Glenn said. “He’s just doing it through the Department of Homeland Security.”
“Meanwhile, Janet Napolitano is telling us that the border is now better than it’s ever been,” he continued. “That is an out and out outrageous lie. This is one of the most important topics of our lifetime what’s happening on the border. It is a war zone. It is worse than a war zone. What’s happening in Pakistan on the border, what’s happening in Iraq on a border is not as bad as what’s happening in our own country on our border.”
Congress needs to wake up. This man is destroying our republic. His reign is a lawless tyranny. Maybe one day more than Tea Party and conservatives will give a shit. The media certainly isn’t going to help.
In closing Beck said it best:
“The cowards in congress won’t deal with it, the cowards in the media won’t deal with it, the cowards in the Oval Office won’t deal with it – President Barack Obama is a coward,” Glenn said.
Feel like adding a garden in your backyard next to that unsightly ditch? Sorry no can do. Seems the EPA wants to regulate ditches and gullies on private property. The assholes claim that the Clean Water Act gives them power to claim the ditch as part of a navigable waterway.
I can’t remember the last time a barge made it up into my backyard via the drainage ditch but I sure wouldn’t want to have my apple trees get in its way.
The EPA has done more to retard the growth of this country than any of the other alphabet soup of government idiocy. Human Events has the sordid details:
Lawmakers are working to block an unprecedented power grab by the Environmental Protection Agency to use the Clean Water Act (CWA) and control land alongside ditches, gullies and other ephemeral spots by claiming the sources are part of navigable waterways.
These temporary water sources are often created by rain or snowmelt, and would make it harder for private property owners to build in their own backyards, grow crops, raise livestock and conduct other activities on their own land, lawmakers say.
“Never in the history of the CWA has federal regulation defined ditches and other upland features as ‘waters of the United States,’” said Rep. John Mica (R-Fla.), chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.), the ranking committee member, and Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-Ohio), chairman of the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment.
“This is without a doubt an expansion of federal jurisdiction,” the lawmakers said in a May 31 letter to House colleagues.
The unusual alliance of the powerful House Republicans and Democrat to jointly sponsor legislation to overturn the new guidelines signals a willingness on Capitol Hill to rein in the formidable agency.
“The Obama administration is doing everything in its power to increase costs and regulatory burdens for American businesses, farmers and individual property owners,” Mica said in a statement to Human Events. “This federal jurisdiction grab has been opposed by Congress for years, and now the administration and its agencies are ignoring law and rulemaking procedures in order to tighten their regulatory grip over every water body in the country.”
Isn’t it sad that you have to pass a bill to ensure government recognizes your Constitutional liberties? But that is where we are in these here United States. A few congressmen are giving it another go to try to reign back the powers that the government gave the president in detaining anyone he thinks is a terrorist. The Hill reports:
Four members of the House are trying again to scale back the power of the president to indefinitely detain terrorist suspects, even though the House rejected a similar proposal last month.
Reps. John Garamendi (D-Calif.), Justin Amash (R-Mich.), Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.) and House Armed Services Committee ranking member Adam Smith (D-Wash.) introduced the Civil Liberties Act on Friday, which would amend the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), passed in May.
Last month, these members supported nearly identical language as an amendment to the NDAA, known as the Amash-Smith amendment, but it was rejected 182-231. In that vote, only 19 Republicans voted for it.
Supporters of the bill, H.R. 5936, argue that under the NDAA as approved, the president could declare a U.S. citizen as an enemy of the state and indefinitely detain that person. While opponents say Americans do not lose their right to habeas corpus, or a hearing before the court, supporters say that would not necessarily be enough to save an American from indefinite detention, if it was claimed they were associating with terrorists.
Under the bill, anyone detained on U.S. soil would have all due rights and liberties under the Constitution. The bill would also terminate language in the bill allowing for mandatory military detention in some cases.
Mostly symbolic I suppose as there ain’t no way the President would sign this even if it made it through the Senate. I don’t think the Senate participates in the Republic anymore anyway.
The National Defense Authorization Act is a heinous piece of tyrannical legislation. It was signed into law on December 31, 2011, by President Barack Obama. New Year’s Eve. Dropped that bitch right in while you were out getting drunk in Times Square. While providing for a budget for the defense of this country, the assholes in Congress, like they always do, snuck in an extra provision. This one is most egregious codifying indefinite military detention without charge or trial.
No citizen in this country could possibly think this is a good thing. If nothing else it violates what remains of the First Amendment. 4th District Court Judge Katherine Forrest agreed ruling the NDAA unconstitutional.
From the Tenth Amendment Center:
The Court: “Assume you were just an American citizen and you’re reading the statute and you wanted to make sure you do not run afoul of it because you are a diligent U.S. citizen wanting to stay on the right side of §1021, and you read the phrase ‘directly supported’. What does that mean to you?”
Government: Again it has to be taken in the context of armed conflict informed by the laws of war.
Court: That’s fine. Tell me what that means?
The Government: “I cannot offer a specific example. I don’t have a specific example.”
After seeing the ridiculous responses the government had given her, and finding that even the government could not define those terms, Judge Katherine Forrest issued her ruling against the NDAA, stating:
“This measure has a chilling impact on first amendment rights.”
She then granted her temporary injunction:
“As set forth above, this Court has found that plaintiffs have shown a likelihood of success on the merits regarding their constitutional claim and it therefore has a responsibility to insure that the public’s constitutional rights are protected.
Accordingly, this Court finds that the public interest is best served by the issuance of the preliminary relief recited herein.”
Doesn’t matter to the Imperial Federal Government of the USSA:
This should be the end of it. This landmark case should be a victory for Americans, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The judge clearly states “the public’s constitutional rights” and “the public interest.” Hey, I’m a part of the public, so I’m protected now!
Not so fast. Our tyrannical government, in one sentence, has chosen to defy a ruling by a federal judge.
“The government construes this Court’s Order as applying only as to the named plaintiffs in this suit.”
Just when you want to believe there are good people in the highest levels of our federal government, statements like this bring you back to reality. The government continued:
“Although the Order fails to comply with Fed. R. Civ. P. 58, and the concluding paragraph of the Order is not, on its face, clear as to whom the injunction benefits, the government reads it in light of the well-established principle that courts “neither want nor need to provide relief to nonparties when a narrower remedy will fully protect the litigants”
The government is so in enthralled with their power the will not let a little something like the Constitution stand in the way of their tyrannical desires.
