The Twin Cities Gun Owners and Crucible Arms has put together a great video showing regular people around Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota in their “natural habitat” exercising their 2nd Amendment Right. We need more videos like this to help educate people who don’t own guns. We need to let them know that everyday people carry guns… and that’s OK.
Alpena Mi. – Despite death threats made against me and my children, and threats to rape my cancer-stricken wife made by virulent anti-gun nuts and Twitter followers of thug rapper “The Game,” I intend to stand tall on the Michigan capitol steps in Lansing on February 8th, 2013. Far from alone, thousands of Michigan gun owners are expected to attend the Open Carry demonstration – co-sponsored by the Facebook group 2nd Right and the internet news program The Truth Is Viral – one of fifty that will be taking place on the steps of every state capitol in the nation from 10 a.m. until noon.
They are gathering to hear Second Amendment supporters including this reporter, Ron Paul-endorsed Republican candidate for the 10th Congressional District Don Volaric, and high-ranking members of Michigan’s Law Enforcement community tell the Federal Government that they will take the guns of the citizens of Michigan over our dead bodies.
The criminal Obama administration has declared war on the citizens of the United States, and it is backed by Treasonous members of Congress, corrupt courts, and a complicit media; but the People are fighting back. All over the country, state legislatures are nullifying the National Defense Authorization Act in its entirety, or just the “Indefinite Detention” provision, as was the case in Michigan on December 5th 2012 when the Michigan House of Representatives voted to kill the law by a vote of 107-0.
In less than seven days, free citizens all over the United States are going to stand up and make their voices heard, hoping and praying that it will be enough to wake up those who still slumber in a mainstream media induced coma so that they will join us as we make a stand for freedom and the rule of law.
This may be the last chance the People will have to peacefully redress the government with our lengthy list of grievances, so please make plans to attend the demonstration in your state capitol on February the 8th. If you are unable to attend, the Michigan demonstration will be simulcast, courtesy of Occupy Detroit, at www.livestream.com/ttivlive and www.bambuser.com/ttivlive so you can watch as thousand of Michigan Patriots stand up in defense of the U.S. Constitution and “all enemies, foreign AND domestic.”

There’s also an update on my wife’s battle against Stage IV Colo-rectal and Liver cancer included in this episode of The Truth Is Viral. My wife and I want to extend our undying gratitude to everyone who has been praying for us and keeping is in your thoughts.
God bless and protect us all,
Semper Fi and Ooh Rah,
P.S. I created this video with a 7-inch Galaxy Android tablet and edited it with the YouTube Video Editor. ”Improvise, Adapt, and Overcome” baby!!!
We live in a violent world.
American citizens are much more likely to be killed by lightning than by international terrorism. That’s a given; but the odds of being killed in a violent crime increase dramatically here at home, among our shopping malls and movie theaters. Mass shootings like the ones in Newtown and Aurora (isn’t it sad that we now know these beautiful small towns by a singular name, forever equated with unparalleled tragedy?) are horrific for sure; but nobody says anything about the fact that there is a Newtown-type body count on the streets of Chicago every single weekend, or that more people were murdered in that city last year than the total number of soldiers and Marines who died in Afghanistan during the same time period. Nearly all of the victims in Chicago were killed with handguns.
Even in the tranquil woods of Northern Michigan, there is need to be concerned for one’s personal safety (this writer’s in particular, as I have been the target of numerous death threats over the internet and over my office telephone because of my support for conservative commentator Michelle Malkin and the 2nd Amendment.)
Malkin had been the target of thug rapper “The Game” and hundreds of his followers on Twitter whose vile epithets and threats of rape and murder were just too much for this writer to remain silent. The Game had tweeted that Malkin and FOX News should be boycotted. Fair enough. I called for the same in reference to his album “Jesus Piece” and was suddenly “Malkined.”
Hundreds of The Game’s fans began tweeting obscenities, and there were a few death threats thrown in as well; but what really drew my attention was one Twit’s threat to rape my wife, who is battling Stage IV Colo-rectal and Liver cancer. These threats have been reported to the proper authorities, and I am anxiously awaiting the results of their investigation.
Since I can’t have a police officer stationed outside my house 24/7, and any help from 911 would most likely arrive too late, I have once again applied for a concealed pistol license (CPL) so that I can protect my family wherever I go without drawing stares and freaking people out with the .40 caliber cannon I carry.
However, since Michigan is an Open Carry state, I suppose I will have to suffer the occasional disapproving glance until I go before the gun board next month. That’s what law-abiding citizens do; they apply for a permit if they wish to carry a concealed weapon. How many criminals does the anti-gun lobby expect will do the same?
But the Second Amendment is not about personal protection or hunting. The Founders were wise enough to enshrine our Natural Rights in the Constitution. They knew that there would always be evil men who would do anything to gain absolute power, and they wanted to give their posterity the means to defend themselves from Tyrants who would wield that power like a club given the opportunity.
Nate Wessler, an attorney on the ACLU’s Targeted Assassinations team, told this writer after the President had ordered the deaths of American citizens Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan without so much as charging them with a crime that Obama was now “Judge, jury, and executioner.” Writing as Publius in Federalist Paper #47, James Madison proclaimed “The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands… may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”
Taken together, the truthful statements of these two men define the new paradigm in the United States: a once proud Constitutional Republic where justice and the rule of law reigned supreme, but which has devolved into a state where the President can now order the extrajudicial killing of an American citizen in secret, behind closed doors.
The Republic has fallen, and a Tyranny now stands in its place. It is only a matter of time before the evils that have been visited upon the innocent peoples of the Middle East through Obama’s support of al-Qaeda are turned inward, against the American citizenry at large.
This video and the accompanying article are not the ravings of a paranoid gun nut. Dozens of states have told the federal government that they will not allow the indefinite detention of their citizens in accordance with the NDAA. Michigan, my state, is the latest among them.
On December 5th of 2012, the Michigan House of Representatives voted 107-0 to nullify that treasonous federal legislation. Sheriffs from all over the country are standing up, mailing letters to the President and Vice-president informing them, literally, that they will not comply with new gun legislation that violates the 2nd Amendment, quite literally saying “over our dead bodies.”
Seriously people, your local elected representatives (don’t count on anyone in Washington for help) are beginning to realize that this country is about to fundamentally change; and they are taking steps to protect the citizens in their state, in their county, and in their town. Fears of a new American Revolution abound; and if history is any indication, we are on the very brink of one.
On February 8th, 2013, in accordance with state law and the 2nd Amendment, there will be peaceful Open Carry demonstrations taking place on the Capitol steps of all 50 states. In Michigan, a team of volunteers is organizing the event; and this writer will be speaking in support of the Constitution, exercising my 1st Amendment right to free speech in defense of the 2nd Amendment.
In this episode of The Truth Is Viral, I take you through the streets of Alpena, Michigan as I go door-to-door to businesses in the downtown area, openly carrying a sidearm in accordance with Michigan law.
Rather than just surprise local law enforcement with my sudden appearance as some reporters have done, I decided to speak with the Michigan State Patrol, the Alpena County Sheriff’s Office, and the City of Alpena Police Department, letting them know of my intentions beforehand.
As a result of my conversations with local LEOs, I was not only told that it was my right to walk around town openly carrying a firearm, but I was encouraged to do so. I was even offered tips on where I could place my flyers and was informed that I needed a permit to solicit from the city. The Alpena City Police Department especially went out of their way to make my little one-man protest a success in accordance with Federal, State, and Local laws.
Please share this video everywhere you can. I can’t do this by myself.

At the invitation of elected representatives and members of the law enforcement community in Northern Michigan, veteran investigative journalist Bob Powell spoke for half an hour, warning the gathered officials about imminent civil unrest sparked by an EMP attack on the United States during an all-but-inevitable war between Israel and Iran.
The briefing included proof of the Federal government’s plan to round up those unruly citizens that they haven’t shot for attempting to escape the death traps that used to be American cities, and their detention in FEMA camps where leaked U.S. Army manuals state that inmates are to be brainwashed with military-style psy-ops.
The officials listened intently as they heard – probably for the first time – about the 1.6 billion rounds of hollow point and sniper ammunition the government has purchased, and how Subsection 502 of Presidential Executive Order 13603 allows the President or those he designates to force any U.S. Citizen into slavery.
One of my viewers expressed frustration last fall when her phone calls and letters to her elected representatives went unanswered, and she asked “Bobby what else can we do?” All I can say to this dear lady is to reach out to her local government instead of the treasonous scum in Washington and warn them about the plans of the federal government by sending them the link to this post.
Wanting to kill some time over the weekend, a friend and I did what men do when they have an entire afternoon to themselves: wish-listing at gun stores. We went to over half a dozen stores, mostly mom-and-pop operations that my friend has been frequenting for many years. We were shocked at what we found.
There was not a single AR, AK, or SKS platform to be found at any store in the county; and the shelves were pretty bare of other semi-auto rifles as well. Asked when they might expect to restock, the gun store owners said that they were unsure when they would be able to get in new shipments because most major wholesalers have no weapons in stock either.
Blaming the Obama administration’s desire to re-institute an assault weapons ban, manufacturers are hesitant to make a model of long guns for civilian use that may soon be outlawed once again. In this interview with gun store owner Mark Meinzinger, owner of Northwoods Gun Shop in Lachine, Michigan, he takes us to the sites where gun stores order their stock; and without exception, there were virtually no firearms – of any type – available. Meinzinger says that what the gun stores have in stock now “is all they’re gonna have.”
