Washington D.C. (The Gaslamp Post) – For those of you who thought that Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s draconian gun-control measures would be thwarted in the Republican controlled House of Representatives, think again. An email posted on Doc Thompson’s website from a protected source with a connection to a Republican member of Congress, shows dialog between themselves and an unknown congressman, in which they say that they intend to go along with it.
When the cameras are rolling, House GOP members have said that they intend to vote down any measures that would restrict an American’s right to own firearms but now it seems that when behind closed doors, the story changes. Make no mistake America, the House Republicans, led by Boner, er Boehner rather, have made it their m.o. to cave to anything that might otherwise jeopardize their careers.
Am I being too harsh on the GOP? Tough! Let them do what’s right for their country and then they can prove me wrong!
In the above featured email, it is curious what the unnamed congressman meant by, “I do think there’s some room for common-ground that Republicans and Democrats can work together on.” While that statement leaves much room for speculation, looking just a mere few sentences later, this individual has made it clear when it comes down to your rights versus their career.
“Bipartisan, bicameral, in Congress for a bill addressing high-capacity magazines, mental health, enforcement of existing laws, and making some tweaks to background check laws.”
Mental health enforcement? And how, pray-tell do they intend to do that? In the case of the retard who shot 20 some people at Sandy Hook, wasn’t he already denied during an attempted firearm purchase?
Addressing high-capacity magazines? What is high capacity and who makes that determination?
Making some tweaks to background checks? In some states a law-abiding U.S. citizen must undergo at least two background checks before purchasing a single firearm. How much more “tweaking” is necessary?
A no-brainer would be that this politician and others like themselves know how they will be portrayed by the communist state-run media come re-election time in 23 months, and their pension and political clout come first.
In the old Soviet Union, those guys were called Commisars. Oh yeah, and once they capitulated to the ruling powers of the communist party, they were all hunted and killed by paranoid members of their own party (Lenin ran to South America where he was hunted down and killed – how’d that work out for him?).
A fortune made by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare.
If history has taught us anything, it’s that leftists eat their own once they’re no longer of any use.
All of this is in response to the mass shootings that have been experienced as of late, whose timing to coincide with UN treaties could not have been better. Compounding this is the fact that this move is being done in the shadow of the so-called “Fiscal Cliff” talks, which they wave in front of the American people like a carrot in front of an ox.
Still to this day nothing has been addressed in Congress as far as the Fast and Furious scandal is concerned; where supposedly tens of thousands of illegally straw-purchased “assault weapons” found their way into Mexico and into the hands of drug cartels, where they were used to wage war with other cartels and cut down innocent civilians. It wasn’t until Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was gunned down in 2010 by illegal aliens using some of those guns, that Operation Gunwalker, perpetrated by the Obama administration was discovered.
Since 2009 thousands of these firearms have turned up at crime scenes in Mexico, which were provided by American straw purchasers who were said to be investigated. The official story on this is that they were allowing the guns to be sold to known cartel contacts in hopes of locating the cartels. This story doesn’t jive with the fact that the ATF stopped tracking the guns as soon as they crossed the border.
What also makes this official story hard to swallow is the fact that a handgun belonging to an ATF agent was found at the scene in Sinoala, Mexico, where a Mexican beauty queen was gunned down in November.
In addition to this, firearms recorded as being sold to drug cartels and smuggled across the border into Mexico are also turning up at crime scenes in the United States. The family of slain Agent Terry is still demanding justice while congress has done nothing, and Atty. Gen. Eric Holder is still free to run the streets.
One more little interesting side note: in addition to the American “assault” weapons being found at Mexican crime scenes is that Mexican police and army are also finding U.S. military issue hand grenades, anti-aircraft rockets, and rocket launchers in the possession of the cartels. This is believed due to a cartel “arms race” where one cartel tries to outgun the other.
I’ve never heard of a single civilian gun store anywhere in America selling anything even close to grenades, rocket launchers, or anti-aircraft rockets. I wonder where they came from.
While popular mythology blames the flow of guns to Mexico on purchases in America’s legal weapons markets (Mexico has tight restrictions on private firearms ownership, including outright bans on guns in calibers used by the military), the gangs have increasingly fielded grenades, rockets and machine guns—firepower unavailable in the average Texas gun shop.
Back on September 11th, 2012, our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was attacked, and our ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens, along with 4 Navy Seals, was killed by what was originally described as a mob of protestors. According to the White House who watched it all unfold; it was a mob of militant and angry muslims who were protesting some ridiculous YouTube video.
The supposed creator of the video, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a.k.a. Mark Basseley Youssef was immediately accused of inciting hatred and was taken into custody. Part of his probation agreement for his bank fraud conviction was that he was not to use a computer or internet, so he was the guy waved in front of the faces of the American public.
It wasn’t an attack it was a protest, we have the bad guy in custody, move along there’s nothing to see here…
Unfortunately for this administration because Americans are waking up, this story fell like a house of cards as well. Apparently they didn’t figure that Americans would make the connection between 9/11 and a supposed “protest” of angry muslims.
One by one the details were picked off:
- It came out that there was no consulate in Benghazi, the consulate (and embassy) are located in Tripoli.
- An ambassador would be accompanied by Marines during a diplomatic mission, not Navy Seals. Navy Seals accompany CIA operations.
- Of all days to be in an extremely hostile place to Americans, why would Ambassador Stevens have been in Benghazi on 9/11 and not safe at the embassy in Tripoli?
- The attack which was observed by the White House as being anything but a protest was finally exposed to be a well orchestrated attack on a “safe house” which was supposed to be secret.
- Repeat distress calls and pleas for backup were repeatedly ignored or denied.
- It has come out that a huge amount of American hardware has found it’s way into the hands of Syrian “rebels” that was believed smuggled to them by way of Libya. Those before mentioned “rebels” turned out to be al-Qaeda members, whom America has been at war with for over two decades!
- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who has known Muslim Brotherhood sympathies, has made every effort not to testify before congress in regards to the Benghazi scandal. She turned down the first request to appear before congress due to a previously arranged diplomatic mission to Australia; she had a wine tasting to attend.
- Her second time was due to sustaining a concussion from a fall that no one saw her experience, and was not originally examined by a physician. She’s now reported to be suffering from a blood clot.
And on top of all this, the video’s alleged creator Mark Basseley Youssef, remains imprisoned over lies from the White House and this administration.
In light of these two scandals, it is appalling that our elected employees have the balls to think that they stand in place to even begin to tell the American public what legally obtained firearm is and isn’t protected by the 2nd Amendment. Who are they to; on one hand sell guns to our enemies and on the other, tell us that we are limited to what we can and cannot use to defend ourselves – while the same firearms that they sold to drug cartels are turning up on the streets of America?

Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution:
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
Article III, Section 3 of the United States Constitution defines Treason as:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.
How is arming the nation’s enemies in the War on Drugs or War on Terror not levying war on the United States or giving our enemies aid and comfort?
Any elected official attempting to thrust any sort of gun control measure upon the American citizen while our government is actively arming our nation’s enemies is guilty of treason by proxy, and should therefore be impeached. This is not an issue of which the American public is willing to, or should compromise.
If your enemies are armed, then it is downright criminal to tell you that you should be disarmed.
