The Republicans Are In On It: Introduced Bill Banning Gun Purchases By People on Watchlists

“Slowly I turned…step by step…inch by inch…,”
(Harry Steppe/Joey Faye Vaudeville routine, immortalized by The Three Stooges)

We are currently being “funneled” into a trap that is created day-by-day with glacial slowness with the intention of nullifying the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the right to keep and bear arms.  The “Overton Window” is a concept of pushing forth concepts that are believed to be acceptable by the public.  The media has been relentless in its aid to the administration by demonizing any and all who practice their God-given, Constitution affirmed rights to possess firearms.  Thefinal enabling of this, however, is being carried about by the U.S. Congress and by President Obama with Executive Actions.

HR 1076, “The Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act,” was introduced in the House of Representatives in February of 2015 by Peter King (R, NY).  Here is the summary:

Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2015

Amends the federal criminal code to grant the Attorney General the authority to deny the transfer of firearms or the issuance of a federal firearms and explosives license to any individual if the Attorney General: (1) determines that such individual has been engaged in or has provided material support or resources for terrorist activities, and (2) has a reasonable belief that such individual may use a firearm or explosive in connection with terrorism. Allows any individual whose firearm or explosives license application has been denied to bring legal action challenging the denial.

Prohibits the sale or distribution of firearms or explosives to any individual whom the Attorney General has determined to be engaged in terroristactivities.

Permits the Attorney General to withhold information in firearms and explosives license denial revocation suits if the Attorney General determines that the disclosure of such information would likely compromise national security.

Authorizes the Attorney General to revoke firearms and explosives licenses and permits held by individuals determined to be engaged in terrorism.

Nancy Pelosi on Thursday, used parliamentary procedure to force a vote on legislation banning gun purchases by people on the terrorist watch list.  It was Republican Peter King who introduced the bill.  Matt Fuller of the Huffington Post penned an article, “House Democrats Hijack Floor for Gun Vote.”  Fuller neglected to highlight the fact that a Republican set the stage for it.

Once again we are “treated” to the results of the system: pseudo-bipartisan government,the illusion of a two-party system.  Substantiating this concept are the continuous closed-door meetings, the latest being Paul Ryan’s with Pelosi regarding the coming Syrian “refugee” influx into the U.S.  Recall, readers: this sort of thing was vividly exemplified in 2009 when Olympia Snow (R, ME) performed similar “functions” as King that enabled Obamacare to come to the floor of the Senate for consideration and eventual voting.

Pelosi’s resolution is a 439-word diatribe that flaunts the term “assault weapons” in one paragraph while unwittingly stating the duties Congressmen are not performing in the next paragraph, that reads:

“Whereas the first duty of Members of Congress is to protect and defend the American people…”

The subsequent paragraph convicts Congress and the Administration:

“Whereas leaders of terrorist organizations have previously urged sympathizers to exploit the United States’ lax gun laws in order to perpetrate domestic terror.”

Interesting and true.  Nothing could be closer to the point that the President of the United States, Barack Obama, hosted functions at the White House where theMuslim Brotherhood and other Al Qaeda operatives were hosted, feted, and recognized.  The Administration enabled the creation of ISIS and all of their currentactivities both domestically and abroad.  Let us not forget it was the Administration, not the Second Amendment, that illegally created Operation Fast and Furious leading to the death of a Border Patrol Agent.  Should this not mean that the Administration and its agents will now be required to turn it all explosives and firearms, as they “perpetrate domestic terror” through such actions?

Gun-control measures are crucial to the Administration and the Congress according to this “terror watch list,” because it is a list that is subject to the Attorney General (the President’s Attorney General), and can be kept out of the public eye with the subjectively-interpreted claim of being “in the interests of national security.”

Now the Administration is augmenting these efforts with an attempt to do it with aid and complicity of State governors, supported by Executive Orders.  All throughout this process we see Republicans caving in and proving that there really are only interests of parties, and not true political parties.  We are seeing the completedissolution of checks and balances.  We are witnessing the erosion of the Constitution incrementally.

Soon Obama will take even further steps, justifying his actions by “Executive Orders” penned illegally, as they are onerous to the Constitution (in accordance with Marbury vs. Madison).  Obama is creating illegal laws under the color of law, and tying all of this in with the treaties his agent, Kerry has signed toward eventual gun confiscation with UN approval.  Day by day, step by step, and inch by inch the agenda is being pushed.  The question is if we the people are ever going to push in the opposite direction, and if so, when?

The civil war is nearly at hand! You'd better get ready!

Form local, state, and federal shadow governments.

Prepare. We must capture tyrants like Peter King and Pelosi for trials of treason. These oath breakers and many others must be tried and eventually hanged. The coming war will be bloody but you will be able to count on many military and police; especially the Sheriff's!

Some how we must address the constitutional issue of waterboarding public officials, office holders whom have commit constitutional crimes to learn whether this is has been an organized act by a particular group of individuals or just plain stupidity. If so, put a round in it once convicted.

I like that picture. That's what I am talking about, waterboard all democrats and the suspected GOP Rhino's.

I still prefer streetcorner hangings.

Me too. Hangings, tar and feather them too. You're getting me excited.

There can be no doubt that what NANCY PELOSI and PETER KING are up to is in DIRECT VIOLATION OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS OF AMERICAN CITIZENS.  These criminals must be held to account for UNCONSTITUTIONAL and UNLAWFUL ACTIONS AGAINST AMERICAN CITIZENS.  That goes for the fraud "President" in the White House as well !

These treasoness bastard's are pushing us to civil war, this is their game plan.

Just a back door way to get rid of the 2nd. Amendment.

Oren, a COS is a huge mistake because politicians and lobbyists will co-opt any effort to make legitimate, positive changes, focusing instead on hos they can destroy part or all of our Constitution under the guise of reforming it.

I will NEVER support a COS as long as a single politician is involved for they are all cowards and criminals as their actions prove.

King's bill died in committee ... has not received a formal reading ... no mark up ... no referrals. Only a few Dem co-sponsors ... and I think King has even denounced the concept since he learned of the number of mistaken entries on the No Fly List and other watch lists.

Thank you!

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
