Unhappy Independence Day 2021: Canceling America

Sunday, July 4th, 2021

Washington Crossing the Delaware by Emanuel Leutze

Now we’re told to enjoy “the 4th of July.” Even the Biden Administration is leading the way.  First, they culturally-appropriated the name “Independence Day” for the so-called “Juneteenth” holiday.  This is not a conspiracy theory.  The law enacting a Juneteenth holiday is literally named the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act.  Read it!  For those who didn’t understand why some of us reacted against this holiday, maybe it’s finally becoming clear: They’re trying to erase American history, and since that starts with our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, the signing of which occurred on July 2nd, though we celebrate it on the 4th of July, known properly as “Independence Day,” it’s important to see what’s going on here. The first step to destroy America is to destroy its history.  To confused folks, I’m asking you to finally see what’s going on here, and to recognize what’s really being done to your country.  We are under attack.  The attack is on many levels, and in many forms.  Our nation is being systematically destroyed.  These people have carried out a coup d’etat, and we’re still debating over foolishness, or still worse, concerned with being labeled “conspiracy theorists.”  We’re still permitting this, and too many are oblivious to what’s being done.  There are those who will argue angrily that I’m making too big a deal of the distinction between the “4th of July” and “Independence Day,” but I’d ask you to consider the real meaning here. Before they finally accomplish their goal, open your eyes on this very unhappy Independence Day to realize America is being canceled, and they’re beginning by erasing Independence Day, and that they intend to ultimately replace the holiday we celebrate on the 4th day of July, with Juneteenth National Independence Day.

Watch the media. Watch the globalist politicians. Listen to their words carefully. Watch the laws they now advocate, advance, and enact. They’re telling you what they’re doing, only too many Americans have failed to connect the very obvious dots.  The Biden Administration tries to bluff you with notions of how your “2021 4th of July barbeque” will cost $0.16 less than it did in 2020, but they don’t mention that you’ll spend more than that in the additional fuel costs to go out and obtain it; neither do they mention that they’ve calculated this based on the inflated prices caused by the pandemic one year ago, and the most optimistic prices they could dig up this year. It’s a clown show, but it’s all intended to tell you “everything is fine, nothing to see here.” It’s all a lie.  Here’s the reality. If I compare the June 2019 price of a pound of beef brisket at Walmart with the 2021 price of that same meat at the exact same store, I find: $1.89/lb. versus $3.99/lb. That’s more than a doubling, and yes, that’s the sale price in both cases. I use this example only because it’s something I happen to know with precision. I ignore 2020 pricing because that price($3.19/lb.) was influenced by shut-down/lock-down hoarding and related influences. Again, you’re being told all of this nonsense to disarm your senses.  It’s all a lie.  Nothing coming out of Washington DC, or from the mainstream media is true. All of it, every last miserable bit of it, is being done to destroy your country.

If you’re unfamiliar with Right Side Broadcasting Network(RSBN,) you should learn of it. They started out as a Youtube channel, and they generally cover all things Trump.  Their channel has been suspended for a week on Youtube, and their video of last week’s Trump Rally in Wellington, Ohio was removed from the platform.  Youtube did this in order to stop the televising of Trump’s scheduled rally in Sarasota, Florida on Saturday, the 3rd of July.  Fortunately, if you have ROKU, or other streaming devices, you can still get the RSBN channel, and they broadcast live on Rumble.  Newsmax and OANN also carried the rally.

Do not give these people what they want. Refer to the holiday today as “Independence Day,” because that’s what it is. The “4th of July” is just another day, after the 3rd, but before the 5th.  “Independence Day” celebrates and commemorates the founding of the republic.  It memorializes the men and women who had the foresight and wisdom to set in motion the entire chain of events that led to the greatest nation in the history of Earth. The enemy means to erase it.  Not satisfied with merely demeaning and diminishing the holiday, and its meaning, they intend to cancel America.  Stop pretending to yourself that this is some oddity that will simply go away, like a fad that comes and goes.  These people mean to destroy your country.

I know many readers here appreciate history.  On the recommendation of several, I recently purchased and read The Indispensables by Patrick K. O’Donnell. If you need to know the character of the coming conflict, read this book because it documents the courage and heroism of the people who founded our nation, and it will give you insights into the sorts of treason and betrayal men like George Washington were compelled to overcome.  To save our nation, you will need the same courage and determination of the men and women described therein, and you will likewise face betrayals and treason, and likely on an even more thoroughly widespread basis.

The people for whom today’s message is most important are those who’ve as yet remained asleep.  Busy, overwhelmed by the events of the last year-and-one-half, they may not have recognized what’s going on. They may not be “political” inasmuch as they don’t general concern themselves with the machinery of governance.  They need your help.  They’re not bad people.  They’re not lazy.  They’re simply unaware.  At the same time, there exists a class of people you will never reach, because they really don’t care, believing they will ride whatever passing waves rise and fall.  They don’t see the danger, and won’t, because they’re committed to not seeing it. To see it would require action, but that’s what they’re committed to avoiding most of all.

This is about your independence. This holiday is about the meaning of the entire history of America, and all of its goodness and its failings. This is about destroying it all, removing from sight the very underpinnings of your whole life. The border, the growing stagflation, the diminution of our military, the continued COVID lies, and the weaponization of the security state against you are all pieces of the same puzzle. It’s an attack on you. It’s an attack on your children and grandchildren, and generations yet unborn.  Those useful idiots tricked into going along are even now lending their dead weight to the inertia of this attack.  It’s crushing.  Your voices must rise in a cacophony of discontent and disapproval.  We must become the new “indispensables.” This will be on our shoulders.  If we fail now, it will come to worse things.  On this unhappy Independence Day, do not let them cancel America, or the only fireworks you may ever see again will be a national funeral pyre.

This is not merely the “4th of July.” It is our American Independence Day. Long live the Republic!

Stealth Attempt to Ban Your Guns In Progress

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

2nd_amendment_ftIn Washington DC, as law-abiding Americans go about their days, minding their business, the machinery of state has found a new approach to attack their right to defend themselves with modern firearms.  No longer content to accept the fact that the Second Amendment guarantees the individual right to keep and bear arms, and no longer willing to accept venerable definitions even of inanimate objects, the administrative state will now redefine terms in order to further restrict your liberties, and ultimately, to strip you of them entirely.  It will be incremental, and as usual, the method will be to attack at those points where the defenders are less certain, or less committed.  The immediate object will be items like “bump-fire” stocks and “echo triggers,” but the ultimate aim is the banning of all “semi-automatic” or “auto-loading” weapons.  Those of you who think your shotguns or pistols are safe had better think again.  Those of you who think even your revolvers will be exempt had ought to reconsider.  Naturally, the military, police, and other official entities will be exempt, and you will be left defenseless, ultimately, because you will not be permitted the means to resist.  You might think you can live without bump-stocks or echo triggers, and you might be right if that’s where it would stop, but it won’t.  It never does. For that reason, I wish to arm you with the knowledge you need to make a choice, and commit to it in the face of this lunacy, and to provide you the information you need to stop this now.  The BATFE has drafted new rules, and you need to comment and oppose them.  To make your argument, you’ll need to understand how they’re attacking your liberties.

Let us begin by understanding what they want to ban.  In the end, they are intent on depriving you even of lever actions and even more primitive weapons. They will reduce you to blunderbusses used only in ceremonies and re-enactments.  To do this, they took the first step by regulating machine guns, so-called “fully automatic” weapons under the National Firearms Act of 1934. In 1986, the Hughes Amendment prohibited the production of new “automatic weapons” for the civilian market.  Now, they’re prepared to take the next step.  The “problem” they wish to “solve” is that you would be able to fire one round immediately after the previous with an additional squeeze of the trigger.  That’s what an auto-loader or “semi-automatic” does.  Discharging the round currently loaded in the chamber causes the firearm to load the next round into the chamber, ready to be discharged when the trigger is again depressed. This is accomplished by some combination of spent gas and mechanical operation, the former powering the latter. The long-held definition of a semi-automatic has been that some additional human interaction is required to cause the next cycle, ordinarily another trigger squeeze. A device like a bump-stock merely helps the operator speed up this process.  The human operator still depresses the trigger to initiate each additional discharge.  What’s different is that the human is merely taking advantage of the natural recoil of the firearm at higher speed.  The cost is that the accuracy is sacrificed.  The method is to use the slop of the added mechanism to create a circumstance whereby the weapon’s natural recoil and a sloppy hold on the weapon create a moment when the weapon is recoiling, and then quickly returns to it’s firing position, meeting the finger which is positioned to again depress the trigger.  The weapon is still a semi-automatic, but human guile has made it approximate the rate of fire of an automatic.

The truth the BATFE’s rule will not now address is that no device beyond the firearm itself is actually needed to accomplish this.  Human guile, a bit of practice, and a little time accomplish the same thing.  This truth will be “discovered” at some future date, and when it is, the BATFE will move to ban semi-automatics on the exact same basis: That they can be manipulated in such a way as to behave, to the uneducated observer, like an automatic.  At present, they are basing it on the idea of “rate increasing devices,” but that’s a hoax.  None of these devices increase the rate of fire, but the human inducing it to operate are the instrument of the increase.  Since they can’t very well ban humans, at least not yet, or ban fingers, or ban loose or sloppy holds on weapons, they will instead ban the weapons.

I encourage each reader to go view a few videos on youtube.  These videos each show a person operating a semi-automatic in such a way as to approximate the rate of fire of an automatic.  Here’s an AR-15:

 

Here’s a Glock pistol:

Here’s a shotgun: Bump-firing a Mossberg 930.  I think you get the point. There is no form of semi-automatic that can’t be “bump-fired,” and to be perfectly blunt about it, the fact that owners of any semi-automatic weapons of any description would support a ban on “bump-stocks” or any other alleged “rate-limiting device” is merely an act of ignorance or cowardice.

The only “rate-increasing device” is a human.  The only salient fact is that your rights are under attack by the BATFE, perhaps at the direction, or at least under control of President Trump.  Congress is certainly complicit, as Republicans in Congress wish to simply make the issue go away, and making BATFE the heavy in an election year is the most expedient way.  Republicans can get their ban of bump-stocks without being seen by their pro-gun voters to participate in a vote to ban them.  This nifty abrogation of their responsibility is also an shirking of their constitutional role.  Permitting them to ban “bump-stocks” or “echo triggers” will next lead to the banning of any trigger modification, including reduced trigger pull weight.  Do you enjoy that improved trigger on your Glock?  Is that trigger on your custom AR-15 really smooth and light? What about the trigger on your Benelli shotgun?  Making them lighter or smoother also makes them easier to bump-fire.  Before long, anything that can be bump-fired by any methodology will be banned, factory-standard or not.  This will be the end of your semi-automatics.  Then it will be double-action revolvers, which in principle, could also be bump-fired.  Ladies and gentlemen, I submit to you that permitting the BATFE to redefine the terms will permit them to ultimately ban all semi-automatic firearms, and a few more besides.

There isn’t any question about it:  This rule must be stopped, and the NRA is doing nothing about it, at least to date, but they’re not likely to do so, because they want the issue to go away too.  To my knowledge, only the Gun Owners of America is taking any action, at least to date.  You can help, and you should, even if you don’t own any of these types of weapons, because things may change and the day may come when you decide you want or need one.  Banning these items on the basis that they “increase the rate of fire” is astonishingly dishonest, since the only true “rate-increasing device” is human ingenuity.  Please visit GOA’s website for more details, and to help by making official comments with the BATFE during the current comment period.

There is one more reason to stop this rule, and it’s a constitutional problem unrelated to the Second Amendment. People have spent millions and millions of dollars on their bump-fire stocks and their echo triggers and so on.  A rule that would now effectively make the possession or use of these items constitutes a “taking.”  In effect, the rule proposes to steal the value of these items without compensation.  Now it is true that I would oppose this even if the government promised to make the owners whole, but the simple fact is that as many as a million of these various devices, perhaps more, are in circulation, and most of them cost hundreds of dollars.  It’s hard to say with an exact number, but the amount of value this would steal from the aggregate of their owners is probably in the hundreds of millions of dollars. This violates the Fifth Amendment’s prohibition of uncompensated takings:

…private property [shall not] be taken for public use, without just compensation.

That seems pretty straight-forward, and it’s an objection we should all raise.

People with an anti-American point of view favor these gun bans, and bans on “rate-increasing devices.”  The problem is that they’re frauds, using each unfortunate attack or mass shooting as an opportunity to steal our liberties.  Note that these same devious liars did not call for the ban of Home Depot rentals after one of those trucks was used by a terrorist.  Why not?  Because too many Americans would reject it.  That’s why your voice is needed now: The government, even under President Trump, needs to know that a large number of the American people reject it.  Don’t fail to speak out in defense of your liberties, and in the name of reason and fact.

For a video discussion of this regulation, including a former BATFE employee explaining how this is being done, see the Military Arms Channel video on youtube.
