More on Stopping Mass Shootings

This is a repost from AMAC, (I am a member), but they do have great articles and this is one that shares my thoughts.  It is not the legal gun owner, but the bad guy with the gun.  and really no reason what so ever, to mess with the second amendment. 

AMAC Calls For ‘Rational Debate’ On Gun Control

gun control debateWASHINGTON, DC – Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens, has called for “rational debate’ rather than politically motivated rhetoric” regarding the issue of gun control.

“The murder of innocent children in our nation’s schools by mentally disturbed individuals cannot be tolerated.  Nor should it become political campaign fodder.  Yet that is exactly what is bound to happen in the next eight months leading up the 2018 Mid-Term elections,” says Weber.

In the wake of the tragic mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens escalated the politics of gun control by calling for the full repeal of the Second Amendment.

Weber describes Justice Stevens’ solution as an “absurdly extreme way to control the use of firearms.  Not to mention that it would be perhaps the first time in American history that our own government would be taking away a Constitutional right.”

A scholarly critique of the rationale for gun control showed that many of the reasons cited for the need of more onerous regulation of firearms are deceptive.  One of the criteria cited is the notion that “homicides are largely ‘crimes of passion’ committed by otherwise law‐abiding citizens not distinguishable from other people.  Therefore, control must be directed at all gun owners rather than select criminal subgroups.”

Says Weber, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which keeps track of gun deaths, has found that nearly two-thirds of death by firearms in the U.S. were the result of suicides, accidents and legal interventions.  He notes that homicides accounted for only 33 percent of deaths.

Law professor Robert Delahunty has a different take on the need for more stringent gun control.  According to Delahunty, “progressives claim that more regulation of guns will deter violence and promote public safety.”  But, he says, they demure when it comes to the notion of abortion control.  “The progressive position seems to depend on what kind of laws they are talking about.”

Weber points out that he is in “no way” condoning indiscriminate sales of guns, particularly to individuals who are potentially a danger to themselves  and to others.

“The emotional and mental stability of gun buyers should, indeed, be a factor in deciding whether to allow such sales.  But, in addition we need law enforcement to be more proactive.  For example, there was plenty of evidence to identify the intentions of the shooter in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School incident.  The FBI and local police had been informed of who he was and what he was capable of.  He was said to go around introducing himself by saying, ‘Hi, I’m Nick. I’m a school shooter.’  Yet, the authorities seemed to ignore the threat he posed.”

More recently, however, police in Lexington, KY got an anonymous tip that a local high school student was threatening to shoot himself and others at his school.  The youngster had recently posted social media pictures of himself with a gun he had recently purchased.  Little time was wasted in obtaining a mental health petition apprehending him.

“Instead of disregarding the right to bear arms granted by our Founding Fathers in the Constitution, instead of targeting legitimate gun buyers and sellers, let’s focus on the reason for the mayhem.  We should be concentrating on the mental health aspects if the issue by finding ways of identifying those with problems and intervening and preventing further atrocities as school shootings,” according to Weber.

More Obama Fraud?

Reblogged from Nox & Friends … A charming piece of information to make us wonder even more about the depth of the Swamp.

 

SNAP = Fraud
By SafeSpace | March 30, 2018 | Alinsky, Barack Hussein Obama (asshole), Culture War, Democrats, Dumbassery, Entitlements/Free Stuff, Evil Left, Lefties
It never fails: Some leftist politician authorizes the distribution of millions of taxpayer dollars in the form of free stuff to “the needy”, then redefines “needy” as anyone who meets bullshit criteria that frequently DISregard income, employability and citizenship status. Magically, the number of “needy” grows exponentially, and millions more hands reach into the pockets of honest American workers. And the “free stuff” program descends into corruption and abuse.

This sequence of events played out at local, state and national levels bigtime during the eight years of the Batears Regime. King Putt encouraged officials in Appalachia USDA offices that dealt with the poor (both folks in actual poverty and those simply suffering from poverty of spirit) to destroy the ethic of self-reliance and corrode the respect for a day’s work for a day’s pay. His directives caused bonuses to be paid to USDA employees who recruited the most new SNAP enrollees. BHO replaced the time-honored work/paycheck equation with free stuff, available without the “stigma” of welfare through SNAP, the renamed food stamp program. Note that Soetero’s socialist approach was not limited to the Blue Ridge; it played out in different forms nationwide. States and localities that had large numbers of illegals also found ways to add ’em all to the SNAP rolls.

SNAP benefits can be grossly abused because the program actually exists for three purposes: Feeding the hungry, of course … but also building the culture of dependency on central government, and enlarging the Democrat voter rolls. By granting SNAP eligibility withOUT citizenship requirements, both the number of dependents and the level of fraud increases.
Judicial Watch presented the following report a few days ago … one more feather in JW’s war bonnet in their battle against leftard corruption.
Nearly 200 Busted in $3.7-Million Food-Stamp Fraud Operation
More than a year after the Obama administration slammed American taxpayers with a record-high tab to provide an unprecedented number of people with food stamps, the fraud continues full-throttle in the bloated welfare program. Authorities in north Florida arrested nearly 200 people for operating a sophisticated ring in which millions of dollars in food stamps were fraudulently exchanged for cash and drugs. Keep in mind that food stamps—renamed by the Obama administration Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to eliminate stigma—are designed to help nourish the nation’s most needy.
For years Judicial Watch has reported extensively on the rampant fraud in the program that cost U.S. taxpayers a bewildering $80.4 billion in one year to provide a record 46 million people with the welfare benefit during the Obama tenure. Even then, a federal audit revealed that many who didn’t qualify for food stamps received them under a special “broad-based” eligibility program that disregards income and asset requirements. The expansion was part of the former president’s mission to eradicate “food insecure households” in the U.S. To accomplish it, the administration spent millions of dollars on ad campaigns to recruit more food-stamp recipients, even doling out hefty cash rewards to local governments that signed up the most people. One state even bragged about a $5 million performance bonus it got from the feds for its “swift processing of applications.”
Not surprisingly, the food stamp program became a hotbed of fraud and corruption. Recipients use social media to illegally sell and buy food stamps online and others use the welfare benefit to buy drugs, weapons and other contraband from unscrupulous vendors, according to a federal audit that also says some trade food stamps for reduced amounts of cash. The fraud costs the government hundreds of millions of dollars, the audit discloses. This was back in 2012 when the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the agency that distributes food stamps, told Congress about the serious issues plaguing the program. Things got so out of control that the Obama administration dedicated $7 million to crack down on food-stamp fraud in 2014. Among the anti-fraud initiatives that the money funded were strategies to identify and successfully investigate attempts to buy or sell SNAP benefits online using social media such as Facebook, Twitter or ecommerce websites like Craigslist and eBay.
More than a year after Obama left the USDA program in disarray, the scams continue. In the recently busted Florida operation, more than 22,000 fraudulent transactions totaling $3.7 million were documented by a task force of local and federal authorities. It has been coined Operation Half-Back and a Jacksonville news report says undercover officers personally observed 115 individuals commit 390 fraudulent transactions involving food stamps. In most cases the food-stamp recipient took 50 cents per $1 in benefit. Some of the corrupt vendors were stores but many were mobile businesses that sell food and have USDA approval to accept food stamps as payment. Among the biggest offenders are a produce business that recorded 7,164 fraudulent transactions for $1.1 million, another that had 7,390 transactions totaling $1 million, a seafood store that recorded 3,958 transactions for $1.2 million and a mobile meat vender that had 3,958 fraudulent transactions for $572,282.
The undercover sting started back in 2012, the year the Obama administration shattered food-stamp records. Law enforcement agencies created fictitious businesses, according to the Florida Attorney General’s office, which disclosed last week that more than 115 individuals have been charged with felonies and 61 others with misdemeanors. Though the federal government doles out food stamps, in Florida a state agency called Department of Children and Families administers it to provide nutrition assistance to vulnerable populations such as children, senior citizens and families in economic distress. “Food stamp trafficking steals from Florida’s hardworking taxpayers,” Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said in a statement. “The SNAP/EBT program is designed to provide services to the most vulnerable among us and for anyone to take advantage of this system is shameful.”
Florida seems to be a hotbed of food-stamp rackets. Less than two years ago the feds busted the largest food-stamp fraud operation in U.S. history in south Florida. Twenty-two defendants in the largely black and Hispanic areas of Miami-Dade County known as Opa-Locka and Hialeah swindled the government out of $13 million by fraudulently trading food stamps for cash. The crooked vendors operated food and produce stands at a local flea market as part of then-First Lady Michelle Obama’s initiative to eradicate “food deserts,” common in poor, minority communities where fresh, healthy food is tough to find or often unavailable. The feds say the business owners and their employees let food-stamp recipients use their welfare benefit to get cash in exchange for a cut of the money.

Helicopter Protesting

The March For Our Lives Was Just ‘Helicopter Protesting’

In a triumph of helicopter parenting, the ‘student-led’ March for Our Lives protest turns out to have been mostly organized and paid for by adult activists.
Robert Tracinski

By

The big “March for Our Lives” pro-gun-control demonstrations last weekend are being touted as the defining moment of the late millennial generation. Much as I like to think ill of millennials, second only to thinking ill of the Baby Boomers, such projections are unlikely to be true because, as Dave Marcus points out, they weren’t true of the Boomers, who were not defined by the hippies and went on to vote for Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.

“Neither of these generations, and in fact no generation at all, is defined by…media-hyped paradigms of what they think and do.” That’s especially true when we discover more confirmation that this spontaneous student activism isn’t so spontaneous, after all.

First of all, the numbers are in for the weekend rallies, and the crowd size is estimated at 200,000. That’s comparable to what we had in DC for the big Tea Party rally in September of 2009. It’s probably smaller than the nationwide Tea Party demonstrations in April of 2009. Perhaps a more direct comparison would be the almost identically named “March for Life,” an annual anti-abortion rally in DC that peaked at 650,000 people a few years back and regularly brings in protesters in the hundreds of thousands. And this is without the benefit of weeks of free publicity provided by the national media.

But these protests had the benefit of more than just free media. Under a carefully neutral title, “In Gun Control Marches, Students Led but Adults Provided Key Resources,” The New York Times basically admits that the marches are astroturf—artificial grassroots.

Although the events, which together drew hundreds of thousands of demonstrators across the country, were inspired and often led by students, many protests simultaneously benefited from groups with more financial resources and organizational skills than the teenagers had on their own….

Everytown for Gun Safety, which was founded and financed by Michael R. Bloomberg, the billionaire and former New York mayor, proudly declared that it had doled out more than $1 million in grants to local organizers. A nonprofit led by former Representative Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, arranged for more than 200 people from the Parkland area to attend Saturday’s march in Washington, and said it had worked with the owner of the New England Patriots, Robert Kraft, to use the NFL franchise’s plane to bring some people to the capital….

‘Our mission was to give them the biggest megaphone possible,’ Shannon Watts, the founder of an Everytown-affiliated group, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, said on Sunday.

There’s a lot more of this sort of thing in the report, but it’s all summed up in this amazing statement:

‘The kids did everything,’ said Jenn Hoadley, 36, who helped students organize a march in Anchorage. ‘All I did was say, ‘You want a stage? Cool. I’ll find one for you. You need a sound system? Cool. I’ll find one for you. You want to march in the park? I do paperwork to help you get that done.’ They planned it all, and they should be given credit for that.’

“The kids did everything” ends up meaning that they expressed their preferences and adults swarmed in to do all the actual work. Plus, in the words of another local student “organizer,” the adults “were paying for everything.” As we usually do. Oh, and all the angry rhetoric about politicians being bought and paid for by the National Rifle Association? That was spoon-fed to them, too, by a Parkland teacher whose “government” class apparently spent a lot of time railing against “special interests” and not much time on the Constitution.

I don’t blame the kids for this, not primarily. They are responding to a perfect storm of two big trends among the older generation. The first trend is the rise of protest culture, in which your entire personal and political identity are supposed to be tied up in which protests you attend. Combine that with helicopter parenting, in which parents are so eager for their kids to enjoy success and a wide range of experiences that they hover over the kids and hold their hands the entire way. I guess we could call this helicopter protesting.

This isn’t new. It’s a phenomenon I observed during campus protests a few years back, when the president of Claremont McKenna college announced “I’m holding a sit-in in my office.” As I wrote, “Today’s students are so coddled that they no longer have to make the effort to take over university buildings. Their elders will take it over for them. It’s like a weird kind of helicopter parenting: ‘Here, let me rebel for you, sweetheart.’”

Similarly, one education reformer observed the irony of the recent anti-gun school walkouts, “protests” that were effectively sponsored by the school’s own administration. “If students have permission to walk out, it’s no longer student activism at all. It’s a field trip.”

I have no doubt that the some of the kids from Parkland and elsewhere will do amazing things some day. Some of them already have, but they’re not here to talk about it. The rest will go on to accomplish much in their lives, eventually. But they will start to do that only after they emerge from under the protective wings and ideological influence of their teachers and parents and decide what they think on their own. Then maybe some of them will dare to launch protests without the permission and support of their elders.

A Lot of Talk

Aviary Photo_131660526231178359

Of course, this is my opinion, the name of the blog “Bob’s Opinion,” should more than indicate that it is my opinion, my studied opinion but still an opinion. It is where I am able to say what is on my mind, what I think and what I believe. It is an “op-ed” journalism post of opinion. Now, with that said, we need to get on with this post “A Lot of Talk” part two, being pro-active in stopping mass murders, (mass shootings, or any shootings), and make it possible to restore the second amendment rights of the citizens of our nation.
Every time there is a shooting the knee-jerk reaction of the left wing is to stage demonstrations and fake news journalism to attack the second amendment and the right to bare arms. More gun legislation, and gun seizure. All this before the mainstream media hacks are giving their impersonation of a forensic autopsy and a complete dissection of the incident, and the shooter. Meanwhile the mainstream media and liberal politicians are pimping the tragedy.
A lot of talk as far as any serious measures to stop this madness of terror and slaughter of our innocent children and young people. We need action, and not more milking and pimping such an evil tragedy. If the amount of money that is spent by the left-wing radical activists and put it to work in PREVENTION we might get something done to secure the safety of the people.
The things that the shooters have in common is that they have some degree of mental or personality dysfunction; in other words, they are crazy as a loon. Okay some degree of personality dysfunction that creates a sociopathic or psychotic behavior trait that is really quite volatile, and we don’t want a meltdown episode. That is when they become violent and plan and execute mass murder. We need to be able to stop them from killing people especially children and young people. Another common trait is also a common trait found in terrorism, absolutely no value of human life.
There has always been those who commit mass murder, but not in the rate of occurrence that there is now. There is motive and triggers that need to be addressed, but, first the individuals or individual must be identified, and their threat evaluated, as mental dysfunction, criminal, terrorist, or just radicalized beliefs. and still within due cause and due process. However, as President Trump pointed out if we start with due process first, it could be the process that takes away valuable time, time that no one knows will end, we must assume the fuse has been lit and no one knows how long it will burn before BANG!
Don’t for one-minute think that all mental cases are dumb, no they are some mental people that are brilliant, able and have no fear. Four prerequisites for a planned attack. And of course, with the people that we are dealing with one thing is really not totally in place and that is the fear factor. Most will pick a soft target, it is easy and poses no resistance. Why do you think the socialists want to take our guns away? There will be no resistance during a mass takeover.
Nonetheless, the first obstacle is to identify the potential shooter or shooters. I doubt if strange behavior would cause enough attention to get reported as it now stands and most citizens would fear a lawsuit, it is coupled with identifying possible intent along with behavior. The police have a probable cause detainment at the present, it however, is only good for 72-hours at a psychoanalysis ward in the hospital. It is used for sociopathic and psychotic episodes and is to provide the patient with a period to reduce the acute anxiety or psychotic episode or to reestablish medication schedules, or detox, then to provide behavior observation, diagnosis, and proper prescription medication reaction. There is simple not enough time in a 72-hour sociopathic or psychotic observation, let alone the other areas of diagnosis, observation and treatment.

With the presumption that we need to identify the mentally ill and get them treatment, will not to rain on anyone’s parade, but, any one that will commit mass murder has a sociopathic episode if not a severe psychotic event, or a delusional or terrorists. This must be understood before they murder someone, but identifying the potential killer and the threat the individual or group individuals pose, is where it may get tricky.
It could be tricky because of the liberal shadow government fine-tuned by the Obama administration. That if the suspected shooter is Muslim, Black, Hispanic, or under the age of 21, the policy of hands off has been applied, or so it may seem. And the banning of profiling as a means to help identify a suspect was truly a means to block law enforcement from effectively doing their job. I remember how the MSM played Obama’s comment of the legal Mexican family out to get an ice cream on a Sunday afternoon being stopped and questioned by police, as his attempt to justify his lawsuit against Arizona and to protect the innocent from police harassment – Phooey! In reality it was his way of allowing more illegal aliens in to vote Democrat. But with those he also granted free passage to the Mexican gangs, and drug dealers.
It could get tricky because of what has been just a lot of talk in the press and all of it is postmortem. After the finger-pointing is all over with and the liberal press has used up its last fake witness and goes silent until the next mass murder. It has become so bad that it has to be mass murder by a semiautomatic weapon before it gets press.
The time has long passed to start working on preventing the mass murderer from killing his or her first victim. Before I get into my opinion of how-to procedures, I must address a couple of things that are so wrong with America today. If the wrongs are not addressed and solved there is no chance of doing a proper job of prevention. Like crisis counseling, or drug counseling, the first thing that must happen is light must shine on the wrong, unless a patient accepts the problem(s) anything done is only a Band-Aid. Here today, the patient is the American people and until we can shine light on the problems and accept them we will never be able to protect the second amendment or protect the public against mass murderers. We need to address our culture and what it has become. It does not mean “going backwards” like Hillary and Pelosi claim. Restoring our values and integrity is the starting point of healing our splintered culture. Insisting on what liberal’s institute as political correctness has done just the opposite of healing, it actually has brought more harm. Treating people with respect and dignity would have healed more of the divisions. But political correctness used as a weapon against conservatives is not only wrong but by necessity builds more hate and division.
Aside from liberalism our nation faces one of the greatest challenges in our history, and that is our splintered culture. How can we fix our culture when our people are so divided and under such strong evil delusions? How do we fix our smashed moral compass?
We must look at the mess we call our culture, the one that Obama bragged about as he apologized to foreign nations as he bowed before their kings and dictators. And tried to convince the people of the United States that America was something it was not. His infamous words were “and that’s not what America is about.” Before he was elected the first time he made the statement that Christians just wanted to poke along clinging to their Bibles and guns, then said to his liberal brainwashed imps “but that’s okay, we will push on without them – leaving them in the dust of history, and not into change.” Change to Obama was a Global Socialist Union.
Well Mr. Obama, you and the three who preceded you, along with corrupted politicians and the Deep State, are to blame for what is our present condition, and the blood of the people including the children is on your hands not the NRA or the guns. You and the liberal policies since the 1960s has finally came to fruition in the Obama administration.
Okay so now that we have placed the blame, and rightfully so, on the liberals and liberal ideology of socialism, we can look at the aftershock of it all, our nation has shattered its once proud culture that moral values, integrity, ethical practices and what was an advancing social unity. A nation that was teaching the three r’s and the fourth r is respect for authority, moral values in our homes, where kids were raised up respecting their parents and honoring them, they were raised understanding social values and decency, modest dress, and that there is a difference between males and females and how our culture has lost respect for our women, our values have been trashed by politics and liberalism.
Our value of life has been trashed through abortion, and senseless violent demonstrations. Our value of respect of others property has become a myth among the millennial liberal activists and “liberal community organizers” or as I prefer to call them conspirators against law and order, against anything decent. Since the 1960s the free thinkers have become more and more radical anti-American, pro liberal socialism as though they are under some sort of evil delusion, following yippy skippy after false heroes and a utopia promised, that can never be realized by a liberal socialist Republic.
One would seldom suspect that liberalism was festering like a big boil, since FDR, but it has, just, at times, it was more open than others, corruptness in our politicians and the actual race dividing “New Deal of Johnson and the Civil Rights Act of the Kennedy’s (Kennedy just didn’t live long enough to sign it), would produce such anti-American Activists such as Al Sharpton, and Jessie Jackson, but it has produced even worse in black and Hispanic racism against the Hinze-57 white man, where it is okay for celebrities and politicians to call for the killing of all white people, and if someone says the sky is blue, you are tagged a racist, where hypocrisy is the normal of liberalism. Obama’s policies over eight years has done more harm to our American culture than any other administration in history.
Folks, just step back for a moment and really take a look at the condition of our culture, then actually think of any bonafide reason that we should be astonished at such horrific evil as mass murders? We must admit that there is a problem with the mental dysfunction of all the killers. Muslim Jihad and Sharia Law, has encouraged, not only Muslim Terrorist, but all terrorists, to rape, kill, and destroy anything or anyone who don’t agree with them.
However, our American culture is not totally lost, and with the help of God we can regain our land and our people from the evil delusion that has perpetrated its evil into our millennial generation. We simply need to expose the evil heroes and replace them with real heroes with morals and integrity. The same with the politicians and celebrities.
Meanwhile, we need to be able to identify and nullify those with, or without, mental dysfunctions before they need to be a top priority of law enforcement on the local, state, and federal level and the subject of the media’s post mortem forensic analysis. Profiling is actually not a dreadful thing, and it does give results, while protecting everyone’s Constitutional Rights. It is a constitutional right for a citizen to live and to possess a firearm or firearms. It is not the authority of law enforcement to seize a firearm without due cause or due process, and there is where we have a problem in defining what is due cause.
Law enforcement should respond to all notifications of concern, in an investigative intent, first point of contact should be to make physical contact with the person making the report of concern, to establish if the concern is actually warranted. The second is to contact the subject or subjects of the concern. It is then the responsibility of the trained officer (and situation evaluation is part of officer training), if the officer determines the threat exists, then he should detain the subject for observation by a trained and equipped person or team, and a background investigation be performed as due process.
It is simple and does not require any more laws than are already exist, except the limit of 72-hours. 72-hours should be the minimum, and 120-hours limit for observation, then panel review to determine the mental instability and recommend no further action or treatment or should be held for further treatment, or placed on a watch list, with the subject’s behavior monitored. If the evaluation result be considered safe, then legal arms be returned, as due cause has been satisfied. If not, then due process needs to be acted on to permanently remove the firearms. Due process can be started in the courts at time of detainment with due cause.
I believe that this is just a jab in the dark opinion, but serious actions need to be taken to remove potential threats to the safety and wellbeing of the community. However, while getting the bad people and their weapons off the streets to nullify any threat, law enforcement must not be able to take away the 2nd amendment rights of any citizen. We need to nullify bad people before they have the opportunity to murder innocent citizens.
End sanctuary cities, end any amnesty for illegal aliens, create laws dealing with gang activities and gang associations, define terrorist groups and put them on a watch list. But it depends on restoring our culture to have any real long-term effect. We must do what we need to do while we fix our nation’s moral compass.

A Lot of Talk

 

 

aa 03-10-2018 (2)

The liberal press and the politicians in Washington DC are burning up the airways utilizing every communicating venue possible to pimp the evil tragedy of the Parkland, FL. high school. I have posted on Bob’s Opinion, an initial post on the crisis, (Culture not Guns), but since then I have reblogged numerous posts all about the gun, and the post analytical autopsy of the situation that seems to be normal in all mass murders. Just talk of what needs to be done about it, and it all comes down to more fighting over gun legislation.
It changes nothing, just adds another chapter in the growing volumes of failed legislation anti-second amendment gun control, in a bogus attempt at stopping the meaningless slaughter of our school children, and for that matter the slaughter of all our citizenry. It remains just a lot of talk, and no effective action.
First, we must understand it is not the weapon that may be used. It is the foundation of our American culture it is our Moral values, relating to our integrity, ethics and Christian principles plus more as we enumerate them, even sparking something as a light in the dimming canyons of our minds. Nonetheless, one cannot expect our American culture to be what it was even 40 years ago, as the decaying effect of evil has slithered forth, mostly unnoticed, until the past four Presidents. (yes, I said the last four, plus the several before them).
During the 1960s, the government put themselves in the position of taking on the personal responsibility of the masses, (people), it basically was a great power grab that started the establishment of a powerful shadow government, infesting the over-indulging bureaucracy who creates regulations that become the same as the laws of our nation. It is the shadow government that has the real power and assumes, through that power, the personal responsibility of the people.
People who still take their personal responsibility seriously, are the ones that hold on to their moral values, integrity, and religious principles. These are the American citizens who are patriotic, who are proud to be American, they respect the flag, our anthem, and to honor our military men and women, and see to it that our veterans are properly taken care of.
Americans who have personal responsibility, understand the reality of a key factor of our freedoms. “With freedom comes responsibilities, with responsibilities comes accountability.” It is the people’s responsibility to hold the corrupt lawless politicians, celebrities, news media, and the shadow government accountable for what they do and say.
Gun control laws is not going to stop anyone from killing, and it is not within the power of Congress to take any constitutional right away from the responsible citizen. The power of government is to hold irresponsible people accountable. And to stop irresponsible people from killing other people before it happens. That is the only responsibility required of government in view of gun control.
The corrupt politicians, celebrities, mainstream media, and protected liberal people groups, need to accept their personal responsibilities and professional ethics or be held accountable for how they act, what they say, and their general attitude of being above the law. And they need to be held accountable for pimping tragic and horrific mass murder incidents.
Fact is, just as with gun ownership of the second amendment brings with it personal responsibilities. Just as the free speech and the freedom of the press of the first amendment, also brings personal responsibilities and with responsibilities come accountability. Holding irresponsible people accountable does not allow for removing Constitutional rights and freedoms form the citizens.
Thanks … R.S. Helms

Part two, will be on the prevention of mass murder.

Culture Not Guns

 

It Is Not About Guns It Is About Culture

It is my sincere heartfelt sympathy for the family and friends of those who were so senselessly taken by a deranged vile outcast.  My prayers are for the comforting and healing of our Lord Jesus Christ, he is the comforting source of my faith, and to whom I seek to touch in your grief and sorrow.  God comfort you all in your season of extreme sorrow.

 

Now, days after this horrific, vile and depraved atrocity perpetrated against the youth and staff of this high school in Parkland, Florida.  Truly a Valentine’s Day massacre which is just becoming truly dissected by the liberal mainstream media.  They initial intrusion onto the grief-stricken parents and loved ones by the unethical journalists who have no integrity left in their shamefully disrespect, to bait and manipulate the families and friends of the victims to promote their particular liberal spin.

That spin is developing into guns as the culprit, and that is their developing spin in order to support liberal politicians calling for stronger gun control.  Folks it is not to do with the guns, it is a proven fact that anyone, mental or criminal, who as fact holds it, guns are probably more available for illegal sale on the streets than are for legal purchase in the licensed gun dealer’s shops.

There is a causation which is purposely ignored by the Mainstream Media, the liberals in Congress and RINOs who are lower than whale dung in the bottom of the sea.  From the time of George HW Bush who embraced the UN’s Agenda 21 until Obama boarded Marine one for the last time.  Since Kennedy and Johnson’s Civil Liberties Act. Which was unnecessary if the enforcement of the Constitution would have been properly handled, as it was and is, the Act. was intended to help build the black voter base, off the civil rights marches of Dr. Martin Luther King, who’s target was the Democratic South’s Racists and racist politicians who used intimidating and vile cruelty creating a victim mentality.  But this knowingly would create division driving the dependency of the black community to depend on the Democrats (liberals) and therefore insurance of votes for the liberals.

That is just the start of the divisions of our culture, systematically civil liberties incorporated the homosexual activist, the Hispanic illegal alien activists, NAACP activists, Nation of Islam activists, radical women’s rights activists, the environmental tree-hugger activists and ACLU Atheists and Muslim Refugees.  The list goes on and with each election the anti-America radicalism of the left gets more active, protected by corrupt politicians and the liberal pro-UN Agenda 21 Deep State, of our most vile and corrupt bureaucracy upper tier, unelected agency officials, which have created a Shadow Government above the law.

Politicians seem to be above the law, void of moral values, integrity, and respect for the Constitution, or the American citizenry.  Money and the delusion of power has corrupted the government which was established by the people for the people, and all have failed on the issue of their oath of office to preserve and protect the constitution and the people of the United States against all enemies from without and from within.  Their failure borders treason, and in some cases, we are finding out that it is treason.

Point is our culture consists of a number of sub-cultures, under some sort of delusional future utopia exempt from law, work, and responsibilities.  The only way there is by destroying the nation that held its citizens accountable to the law, a nation of laws, values and integrity.  A nation that built a justice system on God’s law, so in order to overcome values and integrity of the out of control leadership would have to carry what is left of our culture.  The subculture has the task of completely liberalizing God, and which of the subcultures can then create their own god and value system, based on the example of their lawless leaders.

In this state of delusional rebellion with the pursuit of utopia there comes a clash of the human nature and moral responsibility resulting in various degrees of emotional and behavior problems.  As early as grade school unqualified teachers and counselors in your child’s school are making a diagnosis of your child’s behavior according to what the guidelines of the Department of Education may indicate, a mood or behavior drug is prescribed.

All these drugs are prescription why?  because they’re dangerous aren’t they.  The list of side effects would scare the socks off most parents. But we have no say, or at least we didn’t have much of a say if you want to continue to use public education.  Folks, after the failed attempt of Obama to implant “Common Core,” throughout the education system, originally without any optional uses of the common core agenda.  So, even before common core happened along, these so-called mood or anti-depression drugs were being distributed among the children like lollypops, mislabeled and misleading incomplete side-effects warnings.

Point is that in all the cases of school shootings, one fact is common, the gun never acted on its own volition and caused the death of anyone for any reason.  It is simply not the fault of the gun!  No matter how you want to slice that pie, it is still a reality check.  So, I think it is time for all these sociopathic liberal gun grabbers to maybe do their own investigating for other substantial causes that make people do what they do.  Then do the unheard of, empower local law enforcement more access to internet investigation on persons of interest, before the fact, after thee fact does not help a dead student, or grieving parent, after the fact or the “knee jerk reaction.”

Empower the people and law enforcement to intervene and get the help needed for the nutcase before that person shoots, bludgeons, stabs, poisons, or some other means to inflect death on another person.  Then allow the sociopath at the top to blame something other than what it really is.

It is not the mental illness, or the dysfunctional personality traits, not even the sociopathic or psychopathic behavior syndromes that are the cause. It is however, the lack of detection, and the lack of ability and freedom to investigate, confine and treat, BEFORE the person kills someone or themselves.  Treatment has to be correct and effective, diagnostics and medications absolutely needs refining, so some narcissistic or inapt social nurse don’t have the ability to prescribe medication and treatment but that the proper protocol and evaluation teams confirm treatment.  It is sad when a whole culture caves to subcultures and evil.

With all that’s been happening over the past four or five decades, none compare to the last eight years, as far as lawlessness, not only in government but in all so-called celebrities, and just simple stupidity, it is no wonder that people are upset listening to the vile rhetoric and fall  under the delusion that they too are above the law.  With what is happening in this vile evil world, I simply hope we soon find out how to handle all the hate from the liberals, just a simple TV show cannot express an opposing view without it blowing their minds.  Just think of the triggers of some one who is suffering from a mental or personality disorder, and it seems like there is no one to help?

Just think… if you know someone who is suffering, and although they have been acting more and more strange, and you don’t tell someone, and that person snaps no one knows when or where, but if that person has missed getting help because you didn’t let the authorities know of the danger, … the buck could end with you, and how would you feel about a pile of dead students, or seniors, or a crowd watching a game, or Miss Baker’s third grade class, Miss Baker, the janitor who was fixing a light… tomorrows headline… could be your headline if we don’t find a way to legally intercede, Not disarm the first line of defense.  It is not the only thing we need to be looking at.  There is several areas, and illegal street guns is one of the biggest problems, and we can’t stop it until we actually find the sources, and shut them down.

Open the internet to the same rules as or revised rules of the FCC … extend the 72hour psychoanalysis evaluation to get a real diagnosis before they are released, and with that diagnoses the option of a six-month therapy in a lock-down facility.  And make the FBI and local authorities accountable for missing several alerts of an individual (as happened in the Parkland incident with the FBI).

As it stands with the 72hour psych ward evaluation, there is no way the counselor/case worker can make a proper diagnosis of an individual’s actual problem and prescribe the right psychoanalysis or sociopathic analysis and prescribe the right medication and evaluate the correct reaction.  So most are diagnosed with Bipolar and prescribed a psychotic or depression medication, which can, or perhaps not, go wildly wrong.  It is documented that 1in 25 and another study showed 1 in 1000 become violent. However, since that same year 19.2 million prescriptions for Effexor were filled in the U.S., statistically that means thousands of Americans might experience “homicidal ideation” – murderous thoughts – as a result of taking just one brand of antidepressant drug.

Of course, it is unlikely that psychiatric drugs are the entire cause of mass shootings.  However, it does indicate, that there is a lot of potential mass murderers running around. It is my studied opinion that detection and investigation by local and federal law enforcement including identifying internet users who are posting some of these suspicious posts, including those from gangsta and white supremacy thugs and radical lone-wolfs.

Our culture and lack of values, lack of integrity and the delusion that they are above the law has been promoted far too long.  But since the Kennedy Assassination, Martin Luther King, Bobby Kennedy, and the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan gun control has been a non-stop political talking point and a liberal attempt to disarm America and gain voters.  It is a shame that the liberal politicians use such a incident to fulfill their ideology of “Make the most out of a tragic disaster.”

Although facts show that gun legislation does not work, and the ban on semi-automatic weapons (assault rifles) was a complete flop. Gun laws have proven ineffective showing that take away the guns from the law-abiding citizens only leaves the lawless with guns.  It was also proven that some of America’s enemies did not invade American soil because most of the citizens were armed.  I don’t know where you stand on the issue of gun control, But the only law that I see working would be to free up law enforcement to be able to identify and investigate people who threaten violence in any manner against any other, or organization, or politician in office and law enforcement.  The threat posted on the internet or other means of communications should be just cause for a judge to issue warrants to investigate and seize evidence against any person or group, to include the mental/emotional dysfunctional, make sure they get the right help needed in a lockdown facility.

For the gangsta-criminal element it may mean prison time, but perhaps it will make our celebrities and politicians stop instigating violent behavior, and after they serve a jail sentence perhaps it will help put a dampener on all this BS coming from the liberal media, Hollywood, and civil rights activists like Sharpton, and most of the liberal groups.

That might prevent some of the mass shootings.  It will stop the liberals in congress from leading with the vile rhetoric that incites riots and instigates mass shootings.  Lock them up and expel them from Congress, but, that would mean locking up 80% of the Democrats and about 40% of the Republicans.

Fact is, we don’t need more gun laws, what we need is a restoration of our culture to moral values, integrity and respect in our local communities.  Guess we may be in a tight spot as it will take an act of God to heal our American culture.

According to the Judge …

A Judge Just Dropped The Hammer On James Comey And The Anti-Trump FBI

The FBI’s anti-Trump bias has been put under a microscope since the release of the Nunes memo.

Former Director James Comey and his leadership team knowingly used unverified gossip from the Clinton campaign to spy on a Trump campaign aide.

Now one judge just dropped the hammer on Comey and the anti-Trump partisans at the FBI.

Judge Jeanine Pirro used the monologue of her most recent broadcast on Fox News to rip into Comey and the rest of the Trump hating leadership of the FBI.

They employed the fake news Steele dossier as evidence to obtain a FISA warrant against Carter Page, a Trump campaign foreign policy aide.

The dossier made false claims that Page colluded with Russian officials.constitution-burning1

Comey and the Obama officials who signed off on the warrant violated the civil liberties of an American citizen in the hopes of digging up dirt on Trump.

Pirro blasted this lawless behavior as an attempt to conspire against Trump in order to swing the election and then destroy his Presidency.

Fox News reported:

Judge Jeanine Pirro said the Republican memo on purported government surveillance abuses reveals a conspiracy against President Donald Trump.

“Members of the highest echelon in our FBI and Department of Justice conspired to prevent an outsider from breaking the establishment’s stranglehold on the American people,” Judge Jeanine said in her opening statement Saturday night.

She explained that officials at the FBI and Justice Department used the unverified anti-Trump dossier to secure surveillance warrants on at least one member of the Trump campaign, according to the memo.

“They needed a reason to spy, so they made one up,” Judge Jeanine said. “They swore to facts they knew were lies to get what they wanted, in order to surveil a candidate they could not imagine being president. A cabal of arrogant, condescending employees of our government — whose salaries we pay — thought that we didn’t count.”

She said top FBI and Justice Department officials favored Hillary Clinton, so they weaponized powerful tools of intelligence against Trump when he was a presidential candidate, president-elect and duly elected president.

“This is what they do in third world countries, not in America,” Judge Jeanine said. “The arrogance of those seeking a change in a presidential election is unheard of in the United States.”

She said this scandal isn’t about playing partisan politics or condemning the FBI and Justice Department as institutions.

“It’s about the attempt to change the course of American history using the most powerful agencies in the United States government. How dare you!”

Do you agree?
