The right of the people to keep and bear arms is an extension of the natural right to self-defense and a hallmark of personal sovereignty. It is specifically insulated from governmental interference by the Constitution and has historically been the linchpin of resistance to tyranny. And yet, the progressives in both political parties stand ready to use the coercive power of the government to interfere with the exercise of that right by law-abiding persons because of the gross abuse of that right by some crazies in our midst.

The death of innocents is always tragic. To feel empathy for those who lost their lives and their grieving loved ones is a normal, healthy reaction. To feel any less would be less than human. Unfortunately, a far less noble part of humanity – the “never let a good crisis go to waste” mindset of those who see human suffering as a means to an agenda – always display their ugly faces at such times. So it is with the recent Sandy Hook shootings.
Predictably, before the mourning families could even make funeral arrangements, the usual suspects were already inundating the airwaves with a cacophony of anti-gun gibberish. People such as Michael Bloomberg were already demanding “immediate action.” Naturally by “immediate action,” Bloomberg and others of his ilk mean to strip gun owners of their right to bear arms.
JPFO: No Guns for Negroes (Part 1)
“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government”

ATF Supervisor’s Questionable Gun Purchases Appear to Be Business As Usual
Two guns of interest were found in late November of last year near the scene of a gun battle in the Mexican state of Sinaloa. The battle, waged between the Mexican military and alleged drug traffickers, left five people dead, including a Mexican solider and a beauty queen named Maria Susana Flores Gamez.
One of those guns can be traced back to a Phoenix gun store that sold multiple weapons to local, state and federal law enforcers who allegedly provided inaccurate information on firearms-transaction reports filed as part of those purchases, Narco News has learned. The ultimate fate of those guns is not known but the potential fallout for multiple law enforcers in the Phoenix area could be serious, possibly even criminal, should the matter be investigated thoroughly — though it is that potential alone that may assure no law enforcer or prosecutor is going to take on the task.
The Government Lied When It Said It Only Bailed Out Healthy Banks … 12 of the 13 Big Banks Were Going Bust
We noted in 2011 that the Geithner, Bernanke and Paulson lied about the health of the big banks in pitching bailouts to Congress and the American people:
The American government’s zero interest rate policy is very much like the British Libor manipulation scandal … it’s nothing but an attempt to breathe life back into the insolvent banks, at the expense of the taxpayer. READ THE REST HERE
John Brennan to Replace Petraeus: Stopped the Capture of bin Laden in 1998? Said Jihad is Holy Struggle – Ignored Christmas Day Bomber Intelligence?
The news is breaking this minute that John Brennan, Obama’s Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, will be named to replace General David Petraeus as head of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Remember January 2010 when the astonishing news of the deaths of seven CIA agents posted out of Forward Base Chapman, killed by a (U.S. recruited informer) suicide bomber in a tent in Afghanistan at the now disbanded Alec Station. The Chief of that operation is believe to be a woman. Brennan has been accused by a CIA agent of stopping the opportunity to kill or capture bin Laden in 1998, ignoring intelligence on the Christmas Day bomber, and he has been an apologist for terrorists, saying “jihad is a holy struggle” and referred to Jerusalem by the Arabic name Al Quds.
