“Terrorism” was originally defined in the Oxford English Dictionary as “government by intimidation.”
The powers that be are at it again! They’re going to use the shooting in San Bernardino CA earlier today, along with other similar events of late, to scare the American people into giving up more of their rights in exchange for more government regulation of arm purchases, under the guise of making the public safer! What a farse! More ‘background checks’ aren’t going to do anything to make Americans ‘safer!’ People who go around shooting up schools, parades and other ‘soft targets’ will get their bombs and weapons underground and many are homemade. Just after the Paris bombing, Obama was saying that we, the American public, shouldn’t let fear of terrorists cause us to stop living our lives and that we really have nothing to fear! Reminds me of part of a quote used in one of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s speeches, “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” probably where he got it from. Well, if that’s the case, then why is Obama today saying that we have plenty to fear, so much that we should be willing to surrender more of our God-given and Constitutional rights over to government control in exchange for its protection? Really? Are we being protected? Obama believes it’s perfectly fine to allow terrorists to sneak into America with immigrants fleeing ISIS in the Middle East, but is vehement about increasing background checks on the firearm purchases of law abiding Americans, and making it ever more difficult for Americans to protect themselves by enacting extensive gun control legislation. Obama and our governing officials say their ‘only aim is to keep the American public safe,’ but is that the truth? What hypocrisy! It’s all just empty rhetoric. Can you not see through it? The real goal of T.B.T.B, is to disable the American people from protecting themselves.
An effective tactic that our usurped government uses against “We the People” is the “Terror Doctrine” or “Problem-Reaction-Solution”. Our usurped government creates or exploits a problem then attributes blame to others. Not realizing that our government has been usurped, “We the People” react by demanding that our civil servants provide a solution. Government offers the solution that was planned long before the crisis. The outcome is that the agenda of the government usurpers is supported, as their solution entails rights and liberties being exchanged for the illusion of protection, as well as furthering the size, power, and oppression of centralized government, which the usurpers control; thereby increasing their own power. [Federal Reserve System is an Unconstitutional Scourge Against “We the People”@ http://investigate911.org/ I highly recommend that you listen to the entire film clip for it gives you an excellent in depth look at who really runs our economy and government.
I like what Donald Trump, who’s running for election as the next Republican candidate for president, said right after the terror attack in Paris, “What a different scenario it might have been in Paris, if all those who were attacked had been armed.” We’ll never know, but I for one think it would have been a different scenario, and that terrorists would think twice before opening fire on anyone not knowing who might be armed. Criminals likewise would think twice before committing a crime, not knowing who or who isn’t carrying.
Don’t listen to the ‘doublespeak’ designed to confuse you and get you thinking in the direction T.B.T.B want you to think. Stop listening to the rehearsed and pre-approved scripts of TV news reporters (most of whom are bought) and newspaper columnists, and start using your own brain, if you still have one. The worst thing that has happened to Americans, is the ‘dumbing down’ and brainwashing of our children in public schools and colleges. American History has fallen into unscrupulous hands, often just certain aspects of it are being taught. In a college I attended not long ago, the American history instructor used classroom time to talk about his travels or to make jokes instead of teaching history. Not just a joke here and there, but he used major chunks of class time as his personal stage, and left very little time for learning history. What a dirty joke being played on the American people, who sadly, don’t seem to mind the wasting of precious time, and the ‘dumbing down’ of American youth! Shame, shame on the teachers and college professors who cheat students in this manner by withholding historical truths from them that could help them understand what’s happening in the world and in America right now. Regardless of how one feels about self defense, the fact is our Constitution protects our 2nd Amendment right ‘to keep and to bear arms.’ The P.T.B. have an agenda – to ultimately remove all arms from law abiding citizens, so that only they and criminals will have them. Isn’t that nice? I wonder who the real terrorists are – could they be those who want to disarm law abiding citizens so they can’t defend themselves? Do you know that the reason early American settlers established Militia’s was so the government couldn’t rise up in tyrannical rule over them? If not, you need to read some early American history. Here’s a place to start —
Derived from political and legal philosophers such as John Locke, Hugo Grotius, and Edward Coke, the ideology underlying all forms of American resistance was explicitly premised on the right of self-defense of all inalienable rights; from the self-defense foundation was constructed a political theory in which the people were the masters and government the servant, so that the people have the right to remove a disobedient servant. (Today, it’s the other way around, the government is the master and the people are subservient to it!)
The American War of Independence began on April 19, 1775, when 700 Redcoats under the command of Major John Pitcairn left Boston to seize American arms at Lexington and Concord.
At Lexington and Concord, forcible disarmament had not worked out for the British. So back in Boston, Gage set out to disarm the Bostonians a different way.
On April 23, 1775, Gage offered the Bostonians the opportunity to leave town if they surrendered their arms. The Boston Selectmen voted to accept the offer, and within days, 2,674 guns were deposited, one gun for every two adult male Bostonians.
The government in London dispatched more troops and three more generals to America: William Howe, Henry Clinton, and John Burgoyne. The generals arrived on May 25, 1775, with orders from Lord Dartmouth to seize all arms in public armories, or which had been “secretly collected together for the purpose of aiding Rebellions.”
The war underway, the Americans captured Fort Ticonderoga in upstate New York. At the June 17 Battle of Bunker Hill, the militia held its ground against the British regulars and inflicted heavy casualties, until they ran out of gunpowder and were finally driven back. (Had Gage not confiscated the gunpowder from the Charleston Powder House the previous September, the Battle of Bunker Hill probably would have resulted in an outright defeat of the British.)
On June 19, Gage renewed his demand that the Bostonians surrender their arms, and he declared that anyone found in possession of arms would be deemed guilty of treason.
As the war went on, the British always remembered that without gun control, they could never control America. In 1777, with British victory seeming likely, Colonial Undersecretary William Knox drafted a plan entitled “What Is Fit to Be Done with America?” To ensure that there would be no future rebellions, “[t]he Militia Laws should be repealed and none suffered to be re-enacted, & the Arms of all the People should be taken away, . . . nor should any Foundery or manufactuary of Arms, Gunpowder, or Warlike Stores, be ever suffered in America, nor should any Gunpowder, Lead, Arms or Ordnance be imported into it without Licence . . . .”
To the Americans of the Revolution and the Founding Era, the theory of some late-20th Century courts that the Second Amendment is a “collective right” and not an “individual right” might have seemed incomprehensible. The Americans owned guns individually, in their homes. They owned guns collectively, in their town armories and powder houses. They would not allow the British to confiscate their individual arms, nor their collective arms; and when the British tried to do both, the Revolution began. The Americans used their individual arms and their collective arms to fight against the confiscation of any arms. Americans fought to provide themselves a government that would never perpetrate the abuses that had provoked the Revolution.
What are modern versions of such abuses? The reaction against the 1774 import ban for firearms and gunpowder (via a discretionary licensing law) indicates that import restrictions are unconstitutional if their purpose is to make it more difficult for Americans to possess guns. The federal Gun Control Act of 1968 prohibits the import of any firearm that is not deemed “sporting” by federal regulators. That import ban seems difficult to justify based on the historical record of 1774-76.
Laws disarming people who have proven themselves to be a particular threat to public safety are not implicated by the 1774-76 experience. In contrast, laws that aim to disarm the public at large are precisely what turned a political argument into the American Revolution.
The most important lesson for today from the Revolution is about militaristic or violent search and seizure in the name of disarmament. As Hurricane Katrina bore down on Louisiana, police officers in St. Charles Parish confiscated firearms from people who were attempting to flee. After the hurricane passed, officers went house to house in New Orleans, breaking into homes and confiscating firearms at gunpoint. The firearms seizures were flagrantly illegal under existing state law. A federal district judge soon issued an order against the confiscation, ordering the return of the seized guns.
When there is genuine evidence of potential danger—such as evidence that guns are in the possession of a violent gang—then the Fourth Amendment properly allows no-knock raids, flash-bang grenades, and similar violent tactics to carry out a search. Conversely, if there is no real evidence of danger—for example, if it is believed that a person who has no record of violence owns guns but has not registered them properly—then militaristically violent enforcement of a search warrant should never be allowed. Gun ownership simpliciter ought never to be a pretext for government violence. The Americans in 1775 fought a war because the king did not agree. ~ http://www.davekopel.org/2A/LawRev/american-revolution-against-british-gun-control.html *Research Director, Independence Institute, and Adjunct Professor of Advanced Constitutional Law, Denver University, Sturm College of Law.

History repeats – in the days of Hitler, peaceful, law abiding citizens were ‘disarmed’ so Hitler’s thugs could easily take over the country. It worked beautifully, and that’s exactly what’s behind all the hypocritical rhetoric we’re hearing from Obama’s crooked lips and the P.T.B. Their whole purpose behind the ‘extra background checks’ on gun purchases and so on, is to tighten the noose, and the ‘steps he wants to take’ to insure the public safety (such a farse) are steps towards disarmament. Don’t kid yourselves, once they accomplish this feat, the American public will be in far more danger than it is now – FAR MORE! Why? Because the only ones with the ability to defend themselves, will be the P.T.B. and THUGS (who get what they need via underground sources). Disarming the people will NEVER make them more SAFE – NEVER! Statistics and history have proven this. Don’t forget what happened in Germany, Russia, and other places – history repeats itself. T.P.T.B. will be able to do whatever they wish with the American people, if they achieve their goal. By enacting laws such as the Patriot Act, Homeland Security Act, and others, T.B.T.B. have been dismantling our Constitution and Bill of Rights piece by piece since 911, replacing it with a New World Order! Think I’m joking? Do yourself a favor, spend some time researching this subject so you’ll know truth from fiction when you hear it, and recognize when T.P.T.B. are trying to ‘pull the wool over your eyes.’
Some may protest that self-defense isn’t a Christian posture, but I’m firmly convinced from what I’ve read in Scripture, that it’s not a sin to defend oneself. You may hold an opposing view and that’s fine, you must abide by the dictates of your conscience, but I won’t allow anyone to force the dictates of their conscience upon me, or upon Scripture. Those who quote the King James version of the 6th commandment as “Do Not Kill,” haven’t done a thorough investigation of the true intent of the Hebrew word רצח ‘râtsach’ which primarily means to “murder” but was mistranslated into English as “kill.” This is proven by closely examining ALL the scriptures using that Hebrew term, known as interpreting scripture in the Context of the whole Bible. Thus the true rendering of the commandment is —
Exodus 20:13 You shall not murder.
Murder is wrong. This means the premeditated killing of others is wrong. Killing in a fit of emotion is also wrong and is prohibited here. But as we will see later, accidently taking the life of another is wrong. We must do all that we can to avoid it and stay as far away as possible from taking life.
The Biblical Obligation to Preserve Life
We begin by first looking at the Biblical obligation to preserve life. The Bible clearly teaches that we must preserve life–our own lives and the lives of other people. 1 Corinthians 6:19f teaches that our bodies are not our own. Rather, our bodies belong to God. Our bodies are His property and so we are not permitted to treat or destroy them as we please:
Or know ye not that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which ye have from God? and ye are not your own; for ye were bought with a price: glorify God therefore in your body. (1Co 6:19-20 ASV)
Not only are we to take care of our bodies and the life contained. We have an obligation to preserve the body and life of other people. Psalm 82:4 even cites an obligation to protect those who are in danger:
Psalm 82:4 Rescue the weak and needy; Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked. *This is an excerpt taken with permission, from an excellent article at www.biblicalselfdefense.com written by MT.

Whatever your position on self defense, there can be no denying that what the P.T.B. are up to, what their goal is, which is to disarm all Americans so they can do whatever they want. Americans can now be rounded up and incarcerated without trial, indefinitely, or disposed of if they don’t go along with the plan for a NWO. The P.T.B recently gave the president full discretionary power to do so to anyone he chooses, anytime he wants, for any reason. Don’t believe it?

I don’t believe this scenario HAS to occur, but I’m afraid it will, because as one wise man said, “Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.” ~ Winston Churchill
