Understanding Gun Control

NOTE WELL: In the Las Vegas shooting for the first time THE FIRE POWER was greater than that used (typically) by law enforcement.

If we were to believe the Hillary Clintons and Obamas of the world, gun-control is the answer to all the ills of America.

Is this true?

It runs deeper than that. Watch this short video

Could it be the elites are seeking to cement their unfair privilege.

It seems what they really want is to limit the rights of civilians to arm and protect themselves against a coercive government

We now know from infiltrating Antifa cells (Crowder & O’Keefe) that these Antifa thugs are being financed and armed for the violent overthrow of the Trump regime. Madelay Bay Resort shooting was an evil, ugly, NOISY affair. There is more and more evidence coming to light that the intent of the Soros/Obama/Michael Moore resistance is to destroy America from within.

We live in dangerous times.

Not so long ago guns were banned in Australia, with a disastrous crime wave following in its wake, as shown in this video: Click on the picture to see the video.

What Lies Behind The Violence?

Aside from easy access to guns, there are many other underlying issues that contribute to violence; declining morals, violence seen on TV and in movies and lack of parental control. But what is not widely known is that a common denominator in many shootings has been that those committing the violence were on mind-altering drugs.

Once again with the Las Vegas atrocity, we find that this is true.

drugs & guns

The fact that these random acts of violence are drug-related is noted by renowned natural healer, Dr. Richard Schultze To quote Dr. Schulze, “In EVERY case of mass shootings in the last few decades, the killers were later found out to be taking LEGAL, medical doctor prescribed, pharmaceutical, mind-altering, prescription drugs.”

Power is only lasting within a framework of balance. It was the American Constitution that gave our country a chance to be great and prosperous. This is because there was a natural balance between the Executive, Judiciary and a Legislature AND free and fair elections. It was the Constitution that gave America a chance to vote out crime and corruption.

America (up until now) has been a land governed WITH THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED but in 2016 we nearly lost it. Luckily the majority came through. The people in America have not been happy with the last fifty to eighty years. . We sense, but do not actually know, how badly we have been scammed.

Useful Idiot

Sadly, in the last eight years thanks to shady legislators (like Reid & Boxer) representative government became an endangered species.  One wonders if they werre ever honestly elected, what with illegals voting and crooked voting machines (Project Veritas)  America rejects sleight of hand legislation and ultra, heavy handed EPA regulations stifling progress. What a problem our good constitution is to those who want to keep an unfair privilege. We have been taken into a precarious range of debt, endangering our future and the future of our children and even our grandchildren.Think Puerto Rico? This is not going to turn out right.

Ask yourself why is America richer than Mexico, why did America become a super power while the beautiful Mexico, same continent, good natural resources,struggles with poverty & crime & corruption? The reason is Mexico does not have “Balance of Power” it does not have our constitution. Mexico and much of the rest of the world have a problem of CRIME AND CORRUPTION but then most of the rest of the world does not YET operate under true balance of power; the brilliant pattern of the American Constitution. We are poor in America in exact degree that we let go of our heritage. Income inequality is a major problem in America and worse in Mexico and the rest of the world. It is the Constitutional form of Government that puts in the checks and balances to open the door to the American Dream and to distribute the wealth fairly.

We did something right when we become prosperous and a super power and our responsibility is to share our successful actions with other sovereign nations through education. 

Useful Idiots:

  • Get most or all data from TV, filtered as it is by a bought Main Stream Media
  • Fail to fact check the ideas they accept and operate on and use as stable data.
  • Fail to take the effort to learn a trade and work to support self, family and the nation.
  • Are influenced in their voting by welfare, and the largesse of the state.
  • Tend to believe authority and that might is right, however irrational.
  • Believe slander and cabal & rumor

Saul Allinsky refers to “we the people” as “Useful Idiots”.

Examine #5 of the Allinsky rules.

So let’s take a hard and critical look at America as it has evolved over the last eight years. Do you recognize these points in the “new” fabric of our culture? Here is Alinsky’s advice to the elite oligarchies and crooked politicians to help them hold on to an elite and unfair privilege.

  1. Class Warfare: Divide the people into the wealthy & the poor, and all other factions. Pit one faction against the other. Easier to keep the people down, if you keep them busy fighting each other.
  2. Religion: Religion brings with it a Moral Code that is at best awkward for the crooked elite, and at worst dangerous. Elites MUST remove God from all things public.
  3. Education – take control of what people listen to or watch or read. Also take control of the Education agenda; what children are taught will define our future.
  4. Welfare – take control of all aspects of welfare – if the people are beholden to the State they will be too afraid of losing their livelihood to revolt.
  5. Gun Control – you have to remove the ability of the people to defend themselves against an oppressive government.
  6. Increase Debt – in this way you can increase taxation, poverty and fear.
  7. Poverty – Increase poverty – poor people are far easier to control
  8. Healthcare – Control Healthcare and you control the people

We know that Hillary has studied Allinsky when at University. We also know that Obama has referred to Allinsky quite fondly from time to time. We also know that these rules are from Lenin when he was aiming at world control. (An America that sees itself as a soveriegn nation WILL RESPECT other sovereign nations.  A constitutional America does not engage in imperialistic wars.

Some years ago, I saw a bumper sticker that read, “If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.” That is not quite accurate. Yes, criminals will still be able to get their hands on guns, but the cops and our government will also still have them; and we should beware of such a situation.


The recent spate of shootings, no doubt, has made many of us consider gun control as a possible solution to the violence that is so rampant in the United States. However, any attempts at gun control are fought tooth and nail by the National Rifle Association (NRA).

It’s the old conflict of freedom versus safety and comfort. As usual, the optimum solution lies somewhere between the two extremes. It is possible to have some controls in place without running the risk of being done in by “Big Brother.”

This is explained succinctly in the following:

Thank you Maj. L. Caudill, USMC (Ret.)

“Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it. In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

“When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force. The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunken guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.

“There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we’d be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a [armed] mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger’s potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat — it has no validity when most of a mugger’s potential marks are armed. People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that’s the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.

“Then there’s the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.

“People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don’t constitute lethal force, watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level. The gun is the only weapon that’s as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter. It simply wouldn’t work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn’t both lethal and easily employable.

“When I carry a gun, I don’t do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I’m looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation…

And that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act.”

This is the time to come together as Patriots and to rebuild.

In electing Donald Trump, America rejected globalism and THE directed history of global elites who have Fallen in love with the Allinsky Rules.

We have to also ask if the Las Vegas shooting is a False Flag? 

We can fail to take action, fail to elect the right new leaders and we can let the Resistance be used by the entrenched establishment to undo our working system of government and replace it with a global governance driven by ugly secrets and dark money.

How do we fight back? It all begins and ends with a STRONG AND COLLECTIVE demand for TRANSPARENCY.

01 transparancyThe truth is that we dare not fail to bring in positive reform iduring the Trump eight years how will our world look?

  • The elites will continue to enjoy more and more opulence. There will be scarcity by design – all in our best interests, of course.
  • In a new super-regulated society we will find a high ratio of cops (AKA Security Officers) to every working man. They are there to protect us, of course.
  • We will begin to pay a Local Tax, a City Tax, a State Tax, a National Tax, a Federal Tax and a World Tax. This new tax is going to be introduced gradually but it will grow and grow. There will be no representation, of course.
  • The idle rich and the idle poor, both parasitic on society, will continue to collaborate to steal the fruits of the labor of the producers. There will be no fair exchange with producers of course.
  • There will be the appearance of democracy but the election process will be manipulated. There will be no freedom of course
  • The elites will be there by divine right and it will behoove us to support them, of course.
  • The one percent rich will grow richer and the ninety nine percent will grow poorer of course.
  • The free internet will become a distant memory of a better age.

How to tell a good Politician

I commend Senator Feinstein for her fine letters to her constituents.

I contrast these with the letters I get back from Kevin McCarthy which are a typical brush-off.  I did not vote for either in the last election but I shall be voting for Senator Feinstein in the future. If I now support her it is because of her quality communication and because I see from her answers that she truly understand the process. I also see from her answers that she is devoted to the greatest good.

Rumors are she is soon to retire and if true she is leaving a power position. I wish her well and thank her for her service to the nation.

May her successor demonstrate the same in depth leadership and the same integrity.

Dear Ms. Verhoeff:

Thank you for contacting my office to express your concerns with the process by which Congress drafts legislation. I appreciate hearing from you and welcome the opportunity to respond.

My staff and I carefully draft each piece of legislation that I introduce in the Senate. As you may know, Members of Congress may consult with the Office of the Legislative Counsel when writing bills. The Legislative Counsel of the Senate is appointed by the President pro tempore of the Senate and is required to remain impartial on issues of legislative policy. The office serves to provide advice on constitutional, legal, and technical problems in statues, proposed legislation, and explanatory statements accompanying proposed legislation.

I take a number of factors into consideration before drafting legislation, including the best interest of our State and the Nation as a whole, constituent input, and recommendations from my staff. You can be assured that I perform my due diligence before introducing a bill.

Again, thank you for writing. If you have further questions or comments, please contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841. Best regards.

Sincerely yours,

Dianne Feinstein
United States Senator

Understanding how Man became the Endangered Species

We all love our green planet;  but some EPA thinking is JUST SILLY. 

Over the last eight years, did we give elected officials and their chosen bureaucrats too much power to stop?

I was talking recently to a die-hard environmentalist.  Fossil-Lady chortled with glee as she told me the Tejon cities had been effectively stopped. She belonged to an EPA activist group that found any kind of urban development unsettling. We were talking together about Tejon Ranch, the largest surviving ranch in California originally owned by General Edward Fitzgerald Beale, an explorer and historic figure in early California.  Tejon is now a development corporation. Even before the crash of 2008, the development group had planned to sliver off a small corridor of land from the vast territory while agreeing to conserve 90% of what is THEIR own land. This is not California land, or Federal land, it is privately owned. I was thinking it was a generous gift.

Fossil-Lady was fighting the proposed developments along the I-5 and the I-138. While it is true that the ranch is home to hundreds of bird species, including a few from federal and the state endangered species. Sadly there are some who fight the right of MAN to share with them and profit.  I will admit the EPA had some good fighting arguments and they were keeping the courts busy. Besides the endangered species, Tejon is also home to at least twenty on the Audubon Watch-list, such as the Spotted Owl, Willow Flycatcher, and Tri-colored Blackbird and of course the magnificent Condor.

My question to Fossil-Lady, which she wasn’t answering, was that because 90% of the land would still remain pristine, could birds not fly over a one story, two story or even three story building?


Centennial, the one planned city, is along the I-138. This joins the I-14 down into the LA Metropolis.  The second, a smaller more expensive and more prestigious getaway, was planned in five acre lots near the lakes along the I-5 just beyond Lebec. This was all planned & budgeted for, long before the 2008 crash and now it is 2017. Why has this development never even been started – stopped eternally by the  EPA.  The most noisy of the opposition was the Center for Biological Diversity, based in Tucson, Arizona. They claim the development endangers too many ecosystems, including the largest native grassland left in California.(My common sense father would have said, “Arizona” but I thought you said you were in California? Yes Dad, but do you not know that the Environmental Lobby transcends state lines, actually it goes all the way up to the United Nations where its dart is firmly embedded.)

Fossil-Lady said that she strongly applauded the Arizona efforts. I asked, “You say both projects are now finally approved?”

“That’s right!” Fossil-Lady’s Cheshire-smile broke out again, surprising me. I knew she was against the development.

I frowned, “So . . .  why aren’t they beginning to build?”

“Nobody building in this crazy economy?” she said with lots & lots of satisfaction.

I invite the reader to take a closer look at how this has impacted our small rural community economically?

Against this backdrop, a friend traveled three hours to Fresno desperately looking work, which had all but vanished after the 2008 banking collapse. When he finally got to Fresno there was no work there either; no job as promised, and no lodging. So he and his wife (an outstanding chiropractor) were being forced to leave our community. What is his trade?  Actually he builds houses. If the development had not been stopped by the Environmentalists he could have happily plied his trade on his own home turf. He and his wife would have been spared much financial stress and the community would have been that much richer in more than just one way.

Why could he not get a job in Fresno? Let me share with you what was going wrong in the Central Valley, why it was that he couldn’t get work there either?

There is a very rich farming area around Fresno; so why no employment? The Central Valley raise more than 350 different crops, supporting 20% of all the jobs in the Valley. Some niche markets here, as many of these crops are not grown anywhere else in the nation and some not anywhere else in the world.  Let me correct myself, these were the products and statistics before the EPA unloaded on that area also.

We used to be able to find 1.88 million acres of arable farmland near Fresno; I say arable but that was before the EPA lobby persuaded the left-leaning Congress to cut off the water for farming. Go figure. You need to know, reader, that every dollar that is created by successful farming, generates another $3.50 for the local and regional economy.

California’s drought has devastated the state’s economy, costing about $2.7 billion and over 10,000 agricultural jobs. Nearly 600,000 acres of farmland now lies fallow. There is a drought that California is fighting but the central valley farmers blame Congress. Travel up the I-99 from Southern to Northern California and you will quickly see the signs, “CONGRESS CREATED the DUSTBOWL” Local farmers began a desperate PR effort to enlighten Americans on the danger of the continuing  EPA regulations, denying water to our food basin.


The local farmers are quite right to blame the liberal caucus, but they are also partly wrong. There has been a natural drought in California; even our little dam in Frazier Park has dried up and Congress didn’t do that. They are also trucking in water to Lake of the Woods, one of the little villages that make up our rural “hill” community. But any good community should pull together to conquer natural challenges. This didn’t happen in California where we are so divided.

The “River Restoration” program, mandated by Sacramento and also by Washington is designed “to restore and maintain fish populations in ‘good condition’ in the main stem of the San Joaquin River below Friant Dam to the confluence of the Merced River” . This program is a large part of the problem. Stops came from a settlement agreement in a lawsuit filed aggressively by the Environmental Lobby, placing the survival of little fish senior to the survival and prosperity of Man. Hello, do we have a situation in our courts? Should they not be passing judgement for the greatest good? Add to the above, the “Endangered Species Act”, invoked by the Delta smelt, a little fish that’s not even suitable for eating.  The courts decided these were more important than MANKIND. The cutoff of irrigation water, mandated by this judgement has destroyed the Central Valley agriculture and tens of thousands of jobs. This has been all for a trade-off for the survival of the wee, poor little, endangered fish. No I kid you not, in the middle of this bad California drought, since 2008 1.4 trillion gallons of water have been flushed into the San Francisco Bay.

Good news is that Diane Feinstein and Kevin McCarthy have created common ground and common-sense legislation that saves the farming in central California. This is has just passed through both the House and the Senate. Even President Obama has agreed to sign the bill, signalling that he does have the better interests of the nation at heart. (Senator Boxer is being dragged off kicking and biting and screaming, and frothing at the mouth. Goodbye, good riddance.

Sadly the EPA battles in California are not over. Will Americans ever embrace common sense and learn to work together for the common good? The issue is not only scarce water, it is also scarce energy and the rising cost thereof, making it difficult for Americans to keep up. An aging population needs every kind of affordable energy, coal, oil, fracking, natural gas, wind power and solar to keep warm. With this erratic weather, being able to depend on warm houses and central heating is absolutely vital.

Only with healthy competition, will our energy costs become affordable. We are a nation of many abilities and a nation of many resources, THERE IS TRULY NO REASON FOR SCARCITY IN AMERICA.

One last question and sadly it also has to be asked.  Those who wish to make America great again see that the climate is unstable; what we haven’t seen is GLOBAL WARMING. What we do see and hear is that this “global warming” narrative is a very strong favorite of the “untrustworthy” New World Order. I wish it were not so, but those who favor “America First” have a healthy (proven) distrust of GLOBAL. With the climate change NARRATIVE out there and far, far too loud and noisy, astute Americans ask (and so they should be asking) is there any hidden agenda associated with global warming?

Whether the reader voted for Donald Trump, or Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton our survival, prosperity and greatness will come from all men of good will learning to work together for the greatest good.  Like Diane Feinstein, we need to learn to work together on projects that are good for us all. We also need to be vigilant, and protect ourselves from Big Brother; is the hidden agenda that MSM wants us to pay lip service to, that what they really want is for us to pay a city tax, a county tax, a gas-at-the-pump tax, a value-added tax, a Sales tax, a State tax, a Federal tax and now also a Global tax? Are these freeloaders angling to sneak a Global Tax through, calling it a CARBON TAX?


Americans love our beautiful planet, we love our free lands and we will stand up to protect them. We have also advanced to where we have became aware of our collective identity and we know we have a responsibility for the planet.

However, let’s use common sense, and be alert to efforts to stop progress.

There is something wrong in our thinking when the disadvantaged stay poor, and millennials are all still stuck in their parent’s basements.
