The unions in their fight against Michigan’s Right to Work law debated with the opposition with courtesy and reason, right? No. Their modus operandi is mob rule. You do what we say or we’ll create a mob. Where’s their next “mob-in”? Michigan governor Rick Snyder’s daughter’s soccer game. Classy, real, classy.
Last night, at a memorial service for the twenty children and eight adults killed in Connecticut by an insane, twenty-year-old madman, President Obama began laying the ground work for massive new gun control laws.
Senator Diane Feinstein is already crowing about a “new ” ban on military-style semi-automatic rifles, along with high capacity magazines for both the rifles and handguns. No mention of changing laws that would allow the involuntary hospitalization of people with severe, or violent mental illness. No mention of re-examining medications given to such patients, or the need to change a system that lets these mentally ill folks voluntarily take their medications? Nope, once again, it’s the gun’s fault. By the way, what ever happened to the government program that paid for for having law enforcement officers in schools? That’s a question the Left won’t answer and won’t bring up.
One more time the Progressive’s answer to senseless killing is to strip the law abiding citizens of their right to be able to defend themselves and their families, not only from the insane and bad guys, but from the government as well. What would Feinstein, and the anti-gun Progressives have done if Lanza would have walked into the school with a suicide bomb strapped to his chest? How about if he had done what the boys in the Columbine High School killings did: prepare a couple of propane bombs—not very effectively, I might add. Would Feinstein have written legislation to ban all shotguns if that would have been this mad dog killers choice of weapons? If a crazed killer carries one thirty-round magazine, or three ten-round magazines, what the heck is the difference? It is not the weapons that they carry, but the intent in their minds of what to do with them.
By the way, Mr Obama, what are you going to do about the “botched” gun running operation, “Fast Furious” that you and your buddy Holder ran down in Mexico? The story is circulating that you and Holder tried to set this little illegal gun running operation up to set the stage for stricter gun control, but you boys blew it. Does the fact that thousands of Mexican citizens, and about a dozen American citizens have died (including at least three federal agents) make you an accomplice to murder, or maybe a co-conspirator, Mr Obama? Is that why you had to hide the details of the operation under the cloak of Executive Privilege? What would the public have to say if they knew the details, Mr. Obama?
How about Benghazi, Mr Obama? Four Americans, including our Ambassador, were killed in Benghazi, Libya, despite their please for help? There were enough resources in the area available to have rescued our people, but someone gave a “stand down order” to those forces. The questions are who and why? Word keeps leaking out from various source that it involved you and your Progressives running guns illegally to Al Queda, and the Libyan and Syrian rebels? Is that why officials in the know are suddenly developing amnesia, or are suddenly “unavailable” to answer questions about the fiasco in Libya, Mr Obama?
Senator Feinstein, why don’t you stop trying to disarm law-abiding Americans and start doing your job? Why aren’t you, and your other gun-hating Progressive colleagues trying to get to the bottom of a couple of other massacres, that might have been the direct result of our governments actions? You want to control guns in the U.S. and yet you can’t even control our borders, where a massive amount of illegal weapons are coming in to this country). The United States government is fighting an active shadow war right here at home with radical Muslims, yet you want to disarm law-abiding citizens. Why don’t you spend as much time getting to the bottom of what happened in Libya instead of your domestic anti-gun crusade, Senator Feinstein?
Obama is pushing this country over a fiscal cliff, but now his priority is gun control? I’m getting real tired of this President, his Administration, and Senators like Diane Feinstein letting blatant corruption go unchecked, while they try to figure out ways to strip the rest of us of our Constitutional rights! The priorities of this administration, and the entire Progressive movement are so screwed up because all they want is the power to control our lives. Nothing more, nothing less.
The killings from Columbine to Sandy Hook in Connecticut are all horrific. They are all the more horrific in the sense that they could have been prevented! Armed and trained personnel in the schools, whether it be a police officer on permanent duty in the school, armed and trained school personnel, or a combination of both, these children might all be alive! You strip guns from trained and responsible citizens and the United States becomes one giant shooting gallery. If you want proof just take a look at Chicago, New York, and Washington D.C.! These three cities have the strictest gun control laws in the nation, but these are also the cities with the highest homicide rates in the country? Ask yourself why?
The memorial for those children last night was not the place for politics, but as always, Obama couldn’t resist using the raw emotions of the moment to try and further the Progressive agenda. Those beautiful babies all died because of one man’s evil heart and intentions. The guns were the tools that this freak employed in his quest to shed innocent human blood. So do you punish everyone else in America for what this maniac did, or do we collectively try to find a way to make our society more secure? I hope and pray that we never leave our little ones open to this kind of horror again. I, personally, would rather die with a gun in my hands trying to protect my loved ones than to be helplessly on my knees watching them die.
I said to those who asked me how I would feel if I ever had to use my guns. My answer is this: If I never have to fire my gun in anger then may God bless, and if I do, then may God forgive me. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those in Connecticut, Aurora, Colorado, Columbine, Arkansas, and anywhere else that evil has visited in these United States. May God’s love comfort you during this trying holiday season. God does know what it is like to lose a child.
What did Lee Harvey Oswald, the man that was accused of murdering John F. Kennedy, Sirhah Sirhan, the man charged and convicted with the murder of Bobby Kennedy, Major Nadal Hassan, the Fort Hood shooter, Jerry Lougher, the shooter that shot Gabriel Gifford in the head, and murdered numerous other innocent victims, James Holmes, the Colorado movie theater shooter, and Adam Lanza, the Newtown Connecticut murderer, all seem to have in common?
To start with, they all had absolutely no regard for any human life, and they must all have been void of any normal human emotions to have been able to perpetrate such horrific crimes on all their innocent victims. I suspect that there are a number of common threads that also tie all of these mass murders together. A question that must be investigated and ultimately answered by mental health professionals is why did they all appear to be in a trance state when they were all first arrested?
In the case of Adam Lanza, we have no way of knowing, since he committed suicide. However, autopsy results on his body might find a common denominator that might be similar to chemicals that were found in the bodies of the other mass murderers, all identified above.
If you recall, when Sirhan Sirhan was first arrested, he seemed dazed and disoriented. There is still no explanation as to the number of bullets that were fired during the murder, more bullets were fired than were in his five shot revolver. Lee Harvey Oswald professed his innocence before he was silenced by Mr. Jack Ruby, who shortly after murdering Oswald, he mysteriously died of cancer. Major Nadal Hassan, also seemed be be somewhat out of it, as he was screaming Allah Akbar, as he was slaughtering innocent soldiers. When Jared Lougher was first arrested, he seemed to appear to be clearly out of his mind, and in somewhat of a drugged state, as did James Holmes, the Colorado movie theater shooter. With the suicide of Adam Lanza, other than through autopsy reports, we will never know, if he would have appeared the same way, in a drug induced state, as did all of the other mass murderers when they were all first arrested.
Not being a mental health professional, I have no way of knowing, if the mind can cause people to appear in a drugged state, that way, right after they have committed such unspeakable horrific murders. However, I am certain that there are many mental health professionals that can provide acceptable answers to that question. Is it at all possible that they were all given some sort of medications by our government, that were known to bring out unbelievable traits in them, that allowed them to commit such horrific murders?
There is no one that has their eyes open that does not see that America is under an attack from within, nor is there any doubt that this Administration is doing anything and everything that it can to disarm honest and law abiding citizens of their weapons by any and all means. Our Second Amendment rights have been under attack for a very long time, and with the Sandy Hook massacre, I am certain that the Administration will ratchet up their attack on our Second Amendment rights.
History has proven many times, over and over again, when a nation’s citizen’s are stripped of their rights to posses weapons, be they swords, bow and arrows, or guns, it is not long before they all become little more than slaves to the regime in power.
I believe that an organization was formed many years ago, one that was designed to, as Obama himself has said many times, transform America. It was unfortunate that no one ever asked him what he intended to transform America into. If they did, it would matter not, since he would never have answered that question. However, it is becoming more than evident to anyone that has their eyes open as to his and his Administration’s true intentions.
Obama seems obsessed in supporting the takeover and transformation of all Muslim countries that have resisted being under Sharia law. He has demonstrated that in Egypt, Libya, and most recently in Syria by acknowledging that the Syrian rebels are the recognized accepted authority of the Syrian people. The problem with that is we all know that the Syrian rebels are formed by numerous factions of al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Obama’s support of the militants will soon undermine Syria’s president Bashar Assad, and once he falls, Syria will soon come under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood. Does anyone see what waits in the future for this country? The Administration has taken the American people’s focus off of their real ultimate objective, by diverting our attention, with the bailout of the auto industry, the bank bailouts, ObamaCare, and the fiscal cliff. They were all designed to divert our attention from Obama’s real objective, which is the complete takeover of America, similar to the takeover of Egypt, Libya, Syria, and soon Jordan that will soon all be under the absolute and complete control of the Muslim Brotherhood.
When that happens, Israel will be obliterated from the face of the earth, and the American people—those of us that are left—will become slaves to the Muslim Brotherhood, and to the new “Nation of Islam.” It has been said by many that Islam will rule the world, that America will be taken over from the inside. This all appears to becoming to fruition, does it not?

I’ve written in the past about the ridiculous lengths moral relativists will go in order to satiate the desires of the sexually confused. This pandering runs the gamut of stupidity from a man allowed to undress in a locker room filled with young girls to a judge ordering taxpayers to fund a convicted murderer’s sex change operation.
That said, I suppose it shouldn’t be surprising when a story like the following surfaces. A college in California is allowing a student who was born male – and stands 6’ 8” tall – to play on its women’s basketball team.
The Desert Storm veteran, father, and former standout on another college’s men’s team underwent gender reassignment surgery just months before being allowed to join his current team.
As it turns out, ignoring his gender at birth is not the only special treatment the middle aged player is receiving. Since he is limited from playing collegiate basketball more than two years under Community College Athletic Association rules, his previous involvement in another school’s program would ordinarily keep him off the court.
Since he is now a “she,” according to a new birth certificate recently approved by a judge, the CCAA agreed to give her two more years to play – this time as a woman.
This is not the first time a transgendered individual has been permitted to participate in athletic activities designed for another sex, but each time such an incident makes headlines, those of us with a traditional value system should take notice.
There are obvious and incontrovertible differences between the two genders and the Left continues catering to those who deny and pervert those traits. A series of surgeries – no matter how intrusive – does not erase the genetic makeup God engraved into an individual.

The man sitting in the Oval Office is not our President because his identity documents are clearly forgeries.
Barack Obama loves to give speeches in front of our troops.
He stood on the shoulders—or rather the necks—of the SEALS who took out Osama Bin Laden, taking the credit for himself, even inviting Hollywood in to produce the Ode to Obama, aka Zero Dark Thirty.
But after the troops have served their purpose, they are discarded as garbage.
Case in point: Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, the two former Navy SEALS under fire at the CIA annex in Benghazi, who begged Washington to send help to the consulate to save Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, and a number of others. When Obama refused to send help to the consulate, they went themselves, risking their lives, saving Americans, and making their way back to the CIA safe house, where they met their doom after a second wave of the terrorist attack took them out after several hours.
They cried out for help but nobody came. Obama had no use for them anymore.
Another hero that Obama has left flapping in the wind is Jon Hammar. Hammar served several tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, had been honorably discharged in 2007, and was still trying to recover from “internal” wounds—PTSD and a host of other psychological problems.
He and a buddy decided that a surfing trip in Costa Rica would serve as a salve to the demons that they couldn’t leave behind in war—seeing buddies slaughtered before their eyes.
They loaded up an RV with supplies and headed south. One thing Jon Hammar took along was an old rifle that had been owned by his great grandfather. It was a link to his past. A comfort to him. He was planning on using it for hunting.
U.S. customs had assured him that on his trip through Mexico, he would simply have to declare it, and they supplied him with the “proper” paperwork.
The government bureaucracy, as usual, got it wrong. It was the wrong paperwork. It was the wrong advice. It was the wrong country to go through.
Jon Hammar was arrested in Mexico after declaring the rifle, immediately taken to the infamous CERES prison (infested with drug cartel members) and chained to a bed for four months.
Oh, and the drug cartel members in the prison gave a “courtesy” phone call to Jon’s parents, demanding that they send money or they would kill him.
Jon is now rotting in prison, awaiting a Mickey Mouse trial, facing fifteen years in prison.
Where is Obama in all of this? Olivia Hammar, Jon’s mother, has pleaded with Obama to do something after the State Department has done what most U.S. government departments do—nothing.
Obama’s response to Jon’s mother? Well, Obama’s too busy right now. He’s doing a Kabuki dance with John Boehner at the edge of the fiscal cliff and can’t take any phone calls right now.
When Barack Obama is one day fighting off the enemy or chained to a bed, and he calls out to the military for help, there will be heard an old refrain: “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Mere hours after a murderous lunatic killed more than two dozen individuals – mostly young children – and himself at an elementary school in Connecticut, leftist celebrities took to social media to opine about a utopian world without guns.
Instead of holding the gunman accountable for the unconscionable carnage, these airheads automatically react by calling for responsible gun owners to give up their constitutionally-protected right to bear arms. Most conservatives realize, of course, that this would instantly create millions of new victims since anyone intent on carrying out such a heinous crime is probably not going to heed Big Brother’s call to turn in his or her weapons.
Furthermore, as Oklahoma City bomber Tim McVeigh tragically proved, the absence of a gun does not prevent the risk of random and unexplainable violent acts.
To the notoriously shallow Hollywood left, though, restrictive gun control legislation would be a panacea resulting in nothing short of world peace.
Thanks to social media sites such as Twitter, we can instantly see the gut reactions of these self-righteous entertainers, including screenwriter Kevin Williamson.
“We need gun control,” he tweeted. “Stop defending your right to bear arms. You’re stupid.”
Support of the Bill of Rights constitutes stupidity to this ideological lightweight. It’s a bit ironic for Williamson, whose credits include such gems as the “Scream” trilogy and “I Know What You Did Last Summer”, to blame gun ownership for senseless murder. There’s a reason those movies are called slasher – not shooter – films.
Obviously, those of us not affected by this massacre could never imagine what the victims and their loved ones are going through. They need our fervent prayers for God’s comfort, not the bloviations of bloated blowhard Michael Moore.
“Too soon to speak out about a gun-crazy nation?” he tweeted. “No, too late.”
Moore, who clumsily and dishonestly attacked the issue in “Bowling for Columbine”, continued his tirade by claiming that the “way to honor these dead children is to demand strict gun control, free mental health care, and an end to violence as public policy.”
In other words, the Second Amendment is government-sanctioned murder. Is that right, Michael?
Similarly opportunistic Piers Morgan took to his keyboard to ask Barack Obama if he has the “courage to stand up to the American gun lobby”, later unilaterally declaring that “No American needs more than one firearm at home” and calling those with other views “idiot” and their argument “absolute nonsense.”
Unsurprisingly, there are countless other examples of celebrities calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment. When leftists express outrage, it is nearly always directed at the wrong target.
Instead of the monsters behind these horrendous acts, they blame the inanimate tool used. Of course, this is often not because they actually believe guns are responsible, but because they believe that government control should trump personal liberty.
I – along with millions of my fellow Americans – disagree and will continue to cling to my Bible and guns.

Neil Cavuto and Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson spar over fiscal cliff deal…
“Unarmed schools invite armed fools!” -Cap Black, The Hood Conservative
December 14th, 2012 is a date sure to live in infamy. Twenty young children were killed by a suspect not much more than a child himself.
Twenty six people were murdered Friday at an elementary school. Its magnitude was such that I first thought the report was about an overseas tragedy.
Voices for and against gun control shriek, while a recession-weary populace numbly hugs its children, thanking God that this didn’t happen to them.
There may be an organic solution to this appalling vulnerability.
After September 11th, select airline crew men were trained as “Federal Flight Deck Officers”, authorized to carry firearms for which ammunition is designed not to de-pressurize aircraft.
They are the last line of defense in occasionally unfriendly skies. Should all else fail, they will defend the aircraft with lethal force if needed.
After Friday, hardening America’s soft underbelly of gun-free school systems (assailants exempted) may require a radical thought for some: arming select teachers and/or support staff.
Let it sink in before you react.
There are only so many school resource officers and private ones to go around. When budgets tighten, security is the first thing eliminated or severely cut.
Our ally Israel arms school support personnel (including designated parents) while on campus. Critics may say “but they have a terrorism problem” as grounds for such action.
Active shooters facing unarmed students, faculty, and staff is more than enough terrorism for average Americans.
Chronically-unsafe inner-city neighborhoods could use this option since armed criminals and psychotics function there more often.
Friday’s tragedy in Connecticut reminds us that disarming the law-abiding means that attackers can press lethal advantages long before law enforcement arrives.
If airline crews are armed as an airborne last line of defense, why are a school’s first line of defense (teachers) left too often with their bodies as the only protection when children are attacked?
Save the children: arm faculty.
Make criminals and crazies think twice.
Help Cap Black Help Others!
