More Gun Registration, Bans, and More Limitations On Ammunition Coming

The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action, Gun Owners of America, and the Second Amendment Foundation have all come out against the nomination of U.S. Appeals Court Chief Judge Merrick Garland to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Garland Biden Obama

President Barack Obama nominated Garland, 63, to replace Associate Justice Antonin Scalia, who died on Feb. 13. Garland was appointed to the appeals court in 1995 by President Bill Clinton and has been chief justice of the court in Washington since 2013.

Chris W. Cox, executive director of the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action, said in a statement, “With Justice Scalia’s tragic passing, there is no longer a majority of support among the justices for the fundamental, individual right to own a firearm for self-defense. Four justices believe law-abiding Americans have that right — and four justices do not. Obama has already nominated two Supreme Court justices who oppose the right to own firearms, and there is absolutely no reason to think he has changed his approach this time.

“In fact, a basic analysis of Merrick Garland’s judicial record shows that he does not respect our fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. Therefore, the National Rifle Association, on behalf of our five million members and tens of millions of supporters across the country, strongly opposes the nomination of Merrick Garland for the U.S. Supreme Court.”

The Gun Owners of America said Wednesday that it would oppose the nomination of U.S. Appeals Court Chief Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court because he “is not only anti-gun, he supports the ability of a president to illegally use executive power to advance liberal causes.”

“If Garland were confirmed, we can expect to see more gun registration, more gun bans, more limitations on ammunition — and all of it would be approved by the Supreme Court,” said the group’s executive director, Erich Pratt. “As a practical matter, good people will go to prison for exercising their constitutionally-protected rights.”

In 2007, Garland voted to reverse a D.C. Circuit Court decision striking down Washington’s handgun ban as unconstitutional. A three-judge panel had ruled against the ban in what became known as the Heller case.

Seven years earlier, Garland backed a Clinton administration move to maintain the registration of gun owners in NRA v. Reno.

His vote in the McDonald case supported the White House’s efforts to use the instant check to illegally retain the names of gun owners for six months.

Both decisions were LATER STRUCK DOWN by the Supreme Court in 5-4 decisions. In the Heller case, SCALIA CASTING THE DECIDING VOTE and wrote the majority opinion.

Constitution and Choices: a 4 Year President or a 20+ Year Reign of One More Liberal Justice

Ted Cruz was a guests in the Faith and Freedom Forum at First Baptist Church North, Spartanburg, SC. Sen. Cruz gave a spot on Christian testimony and 10 minutes to speak.. He shared how  faith interacted with the role as president and received a standing ovation.

The untimely death of Justice Antonin Scalia shatters the perspective for this election.

At the the Faith and Freedom Forum Sen. Cruz shared a bit of his experiences following the mentoring received as clerk for Justice Rehnquist. Having previously served as an associate justice, William Rehnquist served as chief justice for nearly 19 years, making him the fourth-longest-serving chief justice on the Supreme Court.

Cruz testify WeThePeople

Ted Cruz was talking about the significance of the Supreme Court at least as far back as early Fall, but the gravity of appointing justices to the Supreme Court struck me, and the audience, at a deeper level with Justice Scalia’s chair now vacant.

Cruz rehearsed before us a list of cases, some of which he himself argued before the Supreme Court – cases that were won by a mere 5-4 decision.  

Ted Cruz explained with each case that America is just ONE VOTE away from losing her values held dear by millions from the days of our Founding Fathers. Just one vote, unless the replacement is an “Originalist” like Scalia. Justice Scalia explains this below.

Originalist

Cruz spoke about President George H.W. Bush’s choice between submitting the name of the conservative Judge Edith Jones and his eventual choice, the more moderate David Souter, for a Supreme Court vacancy because “he did not want to expend the political capital” to get the conservative confirmed by the senate. Cruz spoke against the selection of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., particularly his conditioned support for the Affordable Care Act. I can only imagine how many of you were devastated with Robert’s vote against us.

Cruz argued against the practice of nominating people with limited paper trails on the assumption that they can move more easily through the Senate confirmation process, citing examples in which Republicans have been burned, particularly with Souter, who often sided with the Supreme Court’s liberal bloc.

Cruz SC Resolve

“If, instead, President Bush had appointed Edith Jones, and Mike Luttig which is who I would have appointed, stated Cruz, Obamacare would have been struck down three years ago, and the marriage laws of all 50 states would be on the books.”

We can not overlook what CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER to our Constitution and American values there would be with another 20 year reign of ONE more liberal justice. Imagine a 20 or even 30 year reign of America’s values eroded or even erased. 

Imagine who Hillary Clinton would nominate. It is highly likely that the next president will appoint 2 or more justices to the Supreme Court. 

Who will you choose for president? It’s bigger than who WE WANT in the White House, it’s about who can give us branches of government that are consistent with our own Constitution and American values. Choose wisely with the Republican candidate.
“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote…that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.”

Trump and Forgiveness

The “tell it like it is,” self-funded campaign of real estate mogul, Donald Trump, has captured the minds of people across America.

The July 18, 2015 Iowa Family Leadership Summit hosted 10 Republican presidential candidates at the daylong event in Ames, Iowa. The Summit partnered with Dr. Frank Luntz who asked Donald Trump, “Have you ever asked God for forgiveness?”

No forgiveness Donald-Trump-jpg

Mulling over the question and haltingly responding, Donald Trump demonstrated an unwillingness to admit fault or ask forgiveness – for anything! Trump hesitated, “I am not sure I have” asked for forgiveness, “I just try to go on and do a better job from there.”

Pray for Donald Trump to be drawn to the Lord Jesus Christ in the way he most needs Him. Check my paraphrase “He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he that refuses to be persuaded so as to believe and obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” John 3:36

It is reported that Donald Trump is open to men of God to consult with him and that he seems to be genuinely open to what God is saying to him. I understand some have been teaching him Bible stories. We pray that he listens well. I look forward to Donald sharing publicly his experience with Jesus Christ.

The man known as the Founder of the American Revolution, Samuel Adams, says it all

State of Union Response Alludes to Amnesty Pledge in Spanish Translation

There were plenty of tricks in President Obama’s State of the Union (SOTU) address.

Achieve Prize

Rather than offer suggestions for legislation in his last year, Obama chose to tout his desired legacy.

Here’s what a delusional perspective achieved, along with some truth. His golf game improved with practice, but his government “game” brought one loss after another.

Not hoped chg

Following the State of the Union (SOTU) address each January, the out-of-office party has someone deliver a response. That address this time was by Gov. Nikki Haley of SC. Gov. Haley was certainly aiming her critical remarks of those seeking the Republican presidential nomination in the Iowa Caucus plus the Primary States immediately following like the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries.

Haley-Text-B2

Nikki seems to want to be crowned Vice President on the GOP ticket when a presidential candidate is nominated. She admitted aiming at Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. But how could the Republican State of Union Response allude to an Amnesty Pledge in the Spanish version?

Perhaps tricky Nikki is complicit. I’d like to not believe that. Perhaps the governor was deceived in the Spanish tyrannical translation. Her Highness somehow gets a twisted translation.

Certainly, the Washington Elites/Establishment (CARTELS) used the translation opportunity to attempt fraud on the American citizens, and the millions of Spanish speaking persons who are an undocumented wannabe.

Pay Attention To The Dictionary And The Constitution

Noah Webster set a good example. When Noah was 43, he started writing the first American dictionary. And did we need it. He did this because Americans in different parts of the country spelled, pronounced and USED words differently. He thought that all Americans should speak the same way.

Americans are aghast when the president says, “It all depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is.”

And steel yourself for what is coming out of the mouth of the president. Listen to Noah…

Noah Webster

Webster could read words, define words, interpret The US Constitution, and world events. He powerfully proclaimed,

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive. ”

(Noah Webster, “An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution,” 1787, a pamphlet aimed at swaying Pennsylvania toward ratification, in Paul Ford, ed., Pamphlets on the Constitution of the United States, at 56 [New York, 1888])

Islam’s Insidious Invasion

Syrian ‘refugees’ arrive in S.C. despite governor’s concerns and the voices of many activists and the vote of 7 SC counties.

And so it begins. Actually, it’s the play book that has been in use for centuries. Migrate and conquer for Allah. And who supports this? The Catholic Church in the Low Country, and some Baptist congregations across the Upstate.

In my early conversations with Jason Lee of World Relief Spartanburg he told me, “We have no Syrian refugees coming to Spartanburg…in the foreseeable future, but I can’t say that Lutheran Services in Columbia might not slip one by.” How prophetic.

And how pathetic that the Congress rubber stamps the president’s plan! The Omnibus Bill, now law, completely funds Planned Parenthood, a notorious slayer of humankind, but also affords complete funding for the Refugee Resettlement Program, youth border jumpers, Sanctuary Cities, and un-vetted Syrian refugees, to name a few.

Obama is on course, to “fundamentally change America” by killing the innocents, and changing the population mix of America so long standing citizens are at risk – if not assimilated into Sharia Law, then annihilated.

“ALARMISM” you say. Well, there are just a couple of general questions that continue to go unanswered?

  1. Where do authentic desperate refugees get sports coats?
  2. Where are the women left behind?
  3. Who are the refugee women?
  4. Where are the children of the refugees?
  5. What percent of those vetting refugees for the USA are Muslim?
  6. Why only 3% of the refugees who have come to the USA are Christians? Perhaps the illusive answer to question 4 is – drum roll – just so the Muslims contracted for vetting refugees can keep up appearances of “impartiality” in placing refugees in line for the USA.

Syrian-refugees-UNHCR-photo8

The president, the Congress, the UN, and The US State Department are unmoved to stop this, let alone PAUSE the influx of refugees.

Will the governors, County Delegations, County Council members, Sheriffs and the State Adjutant General stand with WE THE PEOPLE to stop it – or just capitulate?

What will you do?

Take The Guns Varmint

Yosemite Sam guns 10152600_408306992662032_8967218135415153107_n

Kids back in the day knew the difference between TV and reality.

What changed? The Bible and prayer were thrown out of  public schools and sports, lack of demonstrated gratitude, parents abdicating authority and doing what child says, all corporal punishment branded abuse, the rise of behavior modification drugs, ascendancy of violent digital videos/games, personal rebellion and rage rejecting all authority, acceleration of the priority of technology virtually erasing time for families especially to dine together, and disrespecting human dignity and life are some changes.

“After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it.”

Today, if you have an automobile wreck in a parking lot what do you do? You don’t call the AAA and blame them.

If terrorists kill people with guns what do you do? The president stands in the oval office and tells America that the guns and the NRA are to blame. What?
