Gaslight Gangsters at Work

This morning’s “Meet the Press” is having a feeding frenzy on “gun control” and positively salivating on passing more “gun control” and “gun laws” and “blue states progress”…

They opened with a Leftist Democrat congressman from Colorado outright lying about ERPO “Red Flag” laws…

Not one word was mention about the 100,000 annual Opioid deaths being experienced in the US today as a result of Chinese manufacturing of drugs like Fentanyl, and their illegal transport across the porous Southern border with Mexico which the Biden Administration refuses to address. That is roughly 273 US residents a day that are killed through Opioid poisoning compared to the number of people they are obsessing about in firearm related incidents.

All this just goes to prove that the “Gaslight Gangsters” that want to disarm America just want to take your guns, and really don’t care about American lives. They have the characteristics of organized criminals… the violent arm that hurts people, and those that benefit by accumulating wealth and power at the expense of others – all while terrorizing the population and manipulating people with fear.

The False Flag is Flying High

This morning, the media was already parroting the senile ranting about controlling “semi-automatic weapons” by banning them…

The ignorant are blindly following the impaired over the cliff of fear and helplessness. There is only peril at the bottom of their downfall.

But these tragically “woke” can preach from their morally corrupt pulpits because they have hired fully automatic guns paid for by us – the tax payers… They wouldn’t go anywhere without them because they are not naïve about their personal safety – and you shouldn’t be either.

Your choice of firearm type and it’s action should never be dictated by a government – it should be dictated by your personal self defense requirements. That is rational, and responsible.

The same “woke” hypocrites fly massive carbon spewing 747 Jets from Washington DC to Delaware repeatedly every week instead of riding in motorcades – completely ignoring their “climate change” impact. Nobody in the media or UN is complaining about that abuse and irresponsibility are they?

More failing gun control will not stop the Democrat sponsored crime wave that they launched in 2020 and have done nothing to stop for the past two years:

  • Porous borders,
  • illegal invaders,
  • irresponsible prosecutors,
  • emboldened criminals,
  • useless ERPO “red flag” persecution of gun owners,
  • FBI focus on “domestic terrorist” parents at school boards,
  • Trillions of dollars in corrupt government waste and debt,
  • corrupt “Gaslight Gangsters” in executive control of government…
  • questionable election integrity…

The entire executive branch is a “false flag” operation…

Rand Corporation (who basically wants to absorb more government “research” money for studying “gun control” approaches) has recently published criticism of the over 20,000 gun control studies. They found all but just over 100 wanting in statistical relevance. 

Overview:

Propaganda for indoctrinating school children:

Criticism of competing “research”: 

https://www.rand.org/pubs/research_reports/RR2088-1.html

Realizing that their objective is to capture the marketplace for “gun policy research” money, and that they are a proponent for policies that implement “gun control”, their criticism of existing sloppy “research” is somewhat useful. 

The fact is that there is a huge body of “junk science” behind the justification of every single “gun control” strategy that has been  used to propel the over 22,000 “gun control” laws and all their strategies now active in the United States. 

About every decade, a new and innovative “gun control” strategy launches from the Leftist tyrants. The most recent is called “Stocastic Terrorism”. 

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-stochastic-terrorism-uses-disgust-to-incite-violence/

This is how you – the conservative – is being blamed for the most recent shootings in Colorado Springs even though the actual criminal psychopath that did the murders is a disturbed non-binary person that attacked members of his own cultural diaspora. You will see more of this strategy used to justify Gaslight Gangster operations against conservatives  in the future. 

A Roadmap To Protecting The Nation

Here is the roadmap to countering the “Gaslight Gangster” lies which are driving the narrative against guns:

The media will, of course, suppress the response because they are part of the gaslighting of America on the gun issue. This is how to get in front of the issue…

  • Individual Criminals making bad choices are to blame for the violent crime, not “guns”, the NRA, Republicans, MAGA, or anyone else politicians or the media brainwashing blames
  • You are responsible for your own personal security, and nobody else will ever replace this
  • Rich people and politicians hire people to provide their security for them, so they can and do freely lie about regular people’s risks
  • When hypocrite elite Democrats feel threatened, the first thing they demand is that they be guarded by professionals with guns at your expense
  • People that blame guns really don’t care about violent crime victims, they just want to disarm everyone else
  • Your only option for stopping violent criminals is to adopt and acquire effective self defense – and that includes guns and learning responsible gun ownership
  • Not every effective self defense involves firing a gun during an incident, in fact most don’t
  • Criminals obtain their guns illegally, and ignore the processes that “gun control” put in place – they only affect lawful citizens
  • “Gun Control” has failed for over 50 years, and will not make citizens safer – in fact it has created more opportunities for criminal violence
  • “Red Flag” ERPO laws consistently miss real violent psychopaths, and are vindictively used to abuse regular citizens
  • Democrats do nothing to stop crime, and only use guns to scare citizens and deceive voters
  • Democrat policies that open the border to unchecked criminal invasion and instantly return captured criminals to the streets have enabled a new crime wave
  • Firearms are the only effective and affordable means of security for average citizens
  • Those demanding “gun control” are insensitive and uncaring because they are actually endangering the lives of citizens

The sales of hundreds of millions of firearms in the past two years is evidence that citizens innately understand this. The Gaslight Gangsters (politicians and their media lackeys) are working together to disarm the nation in the face of the constitution and rational citizens that would defend themselves. They use fear to manipulate the rest of the nation into supporting their lies by literally driving irrational manipulated people crazy in order to get their support to disarm the nation.

To Everything Comes Change…

These unconstitutional laws and ballot measures will continue to be introduced by politicians that disagree with our right to self defense. They are confident that it will be expensive, risky and time consuming to correct their draconian actions in the courts.

Ultimately, the NYSRPA v. Bruen decision will help us correct all of these infringements on our rights because of Justice Thomas’ very clear approach to resolving these issues.

Most people don’t understand how powerful his logic was in the opinion he filed for the majority of the Supreme Court. He observed that for the ten plus years since the Heller decision (in which the court embraced “intermediate scrutiny” of laws that infringed on the Second Amendment), the court witnessed nothing but further infringement on our rights. Slow, sure, steady nibbling away at the meaning of “shall not be infringed” by people with a clear agenda. Justice Thomas said that as of now – June, 2022 – that stops.

Heller had established a two step test for any law passed by legislatures or other governing bodies. The first step was “is this – on it’s face – infringing on the Second Amendment?” If the answer was “yes” ,the court went on to a second step where it asked, “is there a justifiable social benefit at an intermediate level of judicial scrutiny to that infringement?”. This “wiggle room” was where every court kept failing our nation thanks to the gun grabber “gaslight gangster” agenda of the gun controllers. These organized criminals don’t care about your self defense rights, they just hate guns, gun owners and your ability to stop criminals. Why doesn’t matter.

Justice Thomas said, no more two step process. If the law is – on it’s face – infringing in any way on the Second Amendment’s recognized right to keep and bear arms, then the law is unconstitutional. Period. End of story.

Several cases were sent back to the lower courts after the NYSRPA v. Bruen decision. They are now in process. So are others working their way through state and Federal courts.

The standard is now based on the meaning of the Second Amendment when the Bill of Rights was passed in 1791, and when the Constitution was incorporated as applying to the states with the 14th Amendment in 1868. If the law (it’s language and meaning of it’s words) would have infringed on the right to keep and bear arms in those years, the law is unconstitutional. Period.

There were no magazine capacity limits in 1791 or 1868. So, eventually the magazine capacity limit laws will all be overturned.

There were no cosmetic feature limiting laws in those years, so no rosters or commerce limiting laws should be able to stand.

There will also be troubling ramifications. There were no serial number required in those years. A case against a felon has already been dismissed regarding removing serial numbers and crossing state lines with a stolen firearm.

Functional features of firearms were not controlled by law in 1791 or 1868… That could open up an entire area of interesting issues.

There were no controls over making your own guns, or the caliber of weapons you could possess.

There were no rules over firing your guns on your own private property, although there were laws against public disturbance and noise nuisances and going to the terror of the people.

Confiscation of property required due process and the decision of a judge or magistrate, there was no concept of a ex-parte “red flag” proceeding.

There were no waiting periods to acquire a firearm, or any number of firearms on the same day. There were no registration lists, or concept of prohibited persons or background check systems.

There were no Federal Firearm Licenses or FFL licensed dealers or manufacturers.

None of our schools were places that prohibited the carry or possession of firearms, and many older students carried rifles to school so that they could go hunting for dinner on their way home.

There was no concept of “gun free” zones – and thus no place where psychopaths could assume that there were “gun free” massacre zones that they could attack.

You can see that this list is long and potentially has very deep implications. Nothing here implies that the criminal use of a firearm is going to be made in any way legal – just the elimination of some of the thousands of infringements that we are living with today.

Implications of the NYSRPA v. Bruen Decision

Remember that the implications of this ruling may both please and concern us as the ramifications start showing themselves. Already, some cases are starting to cause surprise…

https://thehill.com/regulation/court-battles/3687788-judge-rules-federal-law-banning-guns-with-serial-numbers-removed-is-unconstitutional/

There will be others… but on the whole, it will be an improvement for long suffering and abused American gun owners.

Unfortunately, unraveling the long standing abuse strategies of Leftists is expensive and time consuming  The list of those strategies is long.

  • “Red Flag Laws” which abuse the right to due process…
  • “Background Check” systems and the concept of “prohibited persons” which delay exercising your rights – a right delayed is a right denied…
  • Age related restrictions on adults which reflect unjustified prejudice against people simply because of their age, not because of their behavior…
  • Magazine capacity restrictions, and cosmetic feature restrictions because guns scare irrational hoplophobic people…
  • “Assault weapon” bans justified with agenda fueled bogus “research” wastefully funded with Federal tax money…
  • Tortuously parsing commas to misinterpret the “militia clause” of the 2nd Amendment’s language itself…
  • Permission Slip “permit” systems that inject prejudice, delay and bureaucracy into what should be simple commerce…
  • Suppression of interstate commerce and online commerce…
  • Transfer Tax Stamps, Excise Taxes and Permit Fees that act as unconstitutional rights exercise taxes…
  • Prohibited places for carrying your firearms and exercising the right to defend yourself without disclosing the firearm  you’re carrying…
  • The establishment of dangerous supposed “gun free”  massacre zones…. and especially those at schools…
  • Construction of your own firearm from parts, kits, or raw metal or plastic stock…
  • Use of handguns or rifles of various lengths or designs…
  • Use of sound suppressing mufflers to protect hearing without overarching bureaucratic processes or expensive licensing and permitting…
  • And many other things we’ve been dealing with for decades…

None of these abusive infringements of effective self defense rights existed in 1791 (Bill of Rights), 1868 (14th Amendment incorporation to the States)  nor should they exist today.

There’s danger in Media GasLighting on School Shootings

There is great culture danger in the constant media gaslighting of America on school shootings. Considering that one of the Parkland school students was just elected to Congress at age 25 (youngest possible) on a “gun control” platform in Florida, it’s probably time for gun owners to pay attention. 

Even though the Federal Gun Free School Zone Act has worked to create supposed “gun free” massacre zones nationwide, the actual incidence of these incidents is quite rare. Media propaganda stoked by these events would make you think otherwise: 

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2022/11/is_there_room_for_more_than_tears_in_americas_gun_control_debate.html

Some statistics from the article: 

Not once in two hours was the number of mass shootings (133 in 39 years, 3.5/yr) or students killed (1K28/yr) or injured (2.6K68/yr) relative to the number of children in America, 0.004%, mentioned.  Nor were the odds of being shot in a mass shooting (1 in 11K), 1,571 times less than dying from cancer (1 in 7), presented.  No one stated how often so-called “assault rifles” (10% of the time) are used or how many shootings are stopped by armed civilians (49% in 2021).  Nor were gun-free zones, Israeli policy, or the effects of drug use and nihilistic ideologies (that deny God’s existence) on the mental state of shooters discussed.  Perhaps most remarkably, no one mentioned that all public policy is legally constrained by the U.S. Constitution.

Although many on stage were paid to uphold the Constitution and most in the audience were U.S. citizens, the social compact that binds all Americans together was met not with praise, but with challenges as to the 2nd Amendment’s meaning of the word militia and whether the founders envisioned weapons beyond muskets — intimating that semi-automatic weapons (85% of handguns manufactured in 2018) are constitutionally out of bounds.  Instead, the pain of survivors and what that pain demanded were most on display.  In response, politicians added insult to injury by vowing to infringe upon yet more rights without deference to tragedies that have followed national firearm bans as night follows day — for if students gunned down by an evil and deranged person is a horror beyond words, what are tens of millions slaughtered by an evil and deranged government?  

Biden’s DOJ, FBI and Abuse of American Citizen Privacy

In the world of Facebook and other social media, young people have been entranced to the extent that they will readily give up their privacy for access to an artificial sense of community. It is completely conditioned by the way social media platforms work, and is a ready manipulation environment for Leftists and others with evil intent. 

Into that world has stepped the Biden administration and their deep state operatives. Since privacy invasion doesn’t seem to bother Americans anymore, they have taken full advantage of it. 

There are a massive number of abuses being carried out by Biden’s DOJ. You can read about it now, and if Republicans come into the Congressional majority, you’ll be hearing about it in the Judiciary Committees that they form in the House and Senate.

This report was released on Friday: https://republicans-judiciary.house.gov/wp-content/uploads/2022/11/HJC_STAFF_FBI_REPORT.pdf

Take a look at this recent disclosure by the FBI whistleblowers that have been talking to Congress: 

Additionally, according to information from the Office of the Director for National Intelligence (ODNI), the FBI has misused FISA-collected information to surveil Americans without a warrant.126 Under existing law, the FBI receives a portion of the information the government collects under Section 702 of FISA, and is authorized to conduct queries of this information that are reasonably likely to return foreign intelligence information, or evidence of a crime. 127 Queries that involve U.S. persons should raise oversight sensitivities to ensure rights are protected. However, ODNI data revealed that the FBI conducted an estimated 3,394,053 U.S. person queries in 2021 compared to approximately 1,324,057 U.S. person queries in 2020.128 ODNI stated that more than half of the queries, or about 1.9 million, were related to attempts to compromise U.S. critical infrastructure by foreign cyber actors, which the Biden Administration has attributed to Russian hackers.129 The ODNI report also noted that, on at least four occasions, the FBI failed to obtain an order from the FISC before accessing the contents of Section 702- acquired information.130

That means that the FBI ran FISA inquiries on roughly 1 percent of the current population of the United States during 2021, and another half that in 2020. That is a massive intrusion into the privacy of American citizens. 

You Are A Media Consumer – Responsible For Your Actions

A free press is a cornerstone of a free Republic too. Free speech and the freedom of Religion are the essence of the First Amendment to our Constitution. Note that the founders didn’t include it in the Constitution but were quick to correct the issue just as they did with the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. 

Just as we are free to say what we want, and the media and politicians are free to say what they want including lie as they want, there are consequences to that lying. First is that as free citizens we do not have to listen to those lies, and we do not have to trust those that do the lying or that repeat lies or lie by omitting the truth. 

The widespread corruption of truth here is the issue. In a free society that cannot determine the difference between truth and lies, we are all at risk because it is so easy to mistake a well crafted program of propaganda and manipulation for truth. When that propaganda and manipulation also bases itself on prejudices, it becomes a potent weapon against liberty, culture and society as a whole. 

This is why the media, as it cooperates with agenda driven Leftists, is a danger to a free Republic at liberty. Their corruption in the name of a small number of tyrannical elites is a clear and present danger to our nation. 

Those that control the free media wield power that is concentrated through money and favor to just a few people. This is why the owners of media empires must be carefully evaluated for their actions, intents and agendas. The more obscure and less transparent they are, the less they should be trusted – and the less their media itself should be relied on for “truth”. That includes the utilization of their “social media” assets as well. 

Each citizen is responsible for their own actions, and that includes the media that they consume and participate in. 

Is Donald Trump Good for America?

Never forget that the deep state is made up of well entrenched civil “servants” that have long careers that depend upon their government positions and funding. That funding comes from cooperation of both Republican and Democrat politicians over long periods of time, and it’s driven by powerful commercial forces that often walk in lockstep with the agencies that regulate them. 

The bridge between the agencies that employ millions of Americans and the politicians that fund them are the lobbyists. Where do politicians go when they leave office? Industry – principally to become lobbyists.  And… there is a huge amount of money, power and influence in this. 

Into all of this stepped Donald Trump. He’s a m an with a remarkable ego. He’s driven by it, defined by it and probably bedeviled by it. Together with his father, he learned his way around government relations on the streets of Queens, New York from a young age – then took his lessons International in scope. If anything, he understands politicians, the deep state of government agencies and the corruption inherent in government systems worldwide. 

He learned manipulation from the best (worst?), Roy Cohn… 

He has charisma, a skill he’s honed over decades of developing a public appearance “face” into a political asset. It is a tool in a potent toolbox. 

He literally doesn’t care about his critics or the criticism they heap on him. He seems to have a laser focus on his objectives, and doesn’t share those with others. 

I once worked for someone like this in New York when I was in industry. He specialized in “breaking things” within the system, and was good at keeping everyone that dealt with him off balance. The manager I worked with had some very clear objectives, and they were not nefarious – but constructive. We got some remarkable things done, and I learned some things from him. It was uncomfortable being around him, and he had a difficult personality, but my loyalty to him was returned; and we accomplished some amazing things. He never “turned” on me or betrayed me, and I grew in the experience of working with him. 

Donald Trump clearly scares many people in the country. Is that good? It’s certainly useful. The deep state has grown dangerously out of proportion to it’s utility in a free republic, and is a growing “elephant in the room” class problem for our governance. Clearly, politicians on both sides of the aisle are obsessed with dealing with the FPOTUS. Some want whatever charm he can bring to their conservative campaigns. Others want to avoid him, Others want to destroy him. All for their own reasons. 

Is he good for our nation? If his power is used to reduce the size and power of the Federal government, and scale back Federal agencies I think it will be good for America. The extent that he can unify us around improving our economy and commerce – especially with Canada, European, Middle Eastern, South American and African nations – is a growth opportunity as production capacity is returned to the United States from overseas. Returning energy independence to the US is important in today’s risky world. Keeping us out of hot conflicts with other unfriendly nations is good for America, especially at a time when our military is weak because of horrible leadership. 

I doubt he could heal the divide that has been sown by the Leftist politicians and their supporters in our lifetimes. Their wound to the American culture and character is deep, and simple solutions will not resolve the emotional manipulation that a combination of corruption of our education system, polarization of our religious bodies and politicization of our judicial system has caused. The unrest launched by America hating Leftists is deep and unquenchable. Donald Trump’s blood will not quench that thirst. 

Donald Trump has been the great unifier in the sense that those that hate him have unified around that one thing. They have no other quest except perhaps now restoring the right to kill unborn fetuses. If robbed of those unifying issues, what would they be left with?  Much of Leftist dogma is pure fantasy spread by tyrants for the consumption of fools. Just watch what happens to tyrants when true power is being wielded… as the old leaders in China are escorted off stage in front of the television cameras…. 

Gun Control = Control

The further truth is that you can never legislate “responsibility”, you can only teach it. In a culture that has a huge percentage of single family homes without fathers, and that has evolved a school system that reeks of irresponsibility and wokeness, we are sorely lacking a population that even understands what “responsibility” is…

Rights are balanced by responsibility. We live in a culture obsessed by personal “rights” without a care about living with personal responsibility to be a contributor to that culture. That imbalance cannot stand. Into that walk opportunist tyrants that would deceive self possessed children of all ages and steal their liberty.

Legislators cannot legislate responsibility, and cannot legislate away irresponsibility. The more they try, the more they create a patchwork of complexity that actually works to destroy any possibility of “justice” within a governed society. This makes any appeal to a “justice system” expensive and risky. The realm of experts, lawyers and the elite – the very antipathy of where a citizen belongs.

This is why “gun control” is really only about “control” and the destruction of “liberty”; the destruction of the free citizen.
