The 2nd Amendment: Who Decides Its Meaning?

Eagle-2nd AmendmentThe Constitution of the United States of America, Amendment II:  “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

It isn’t a matter of whether the government bureaucrats and politicians understand the phrase “shall not be infringed” or not, but rather a matter of they don’t acknowledge the basic tenet of the Constitution or any of the Amendments in the Bill of Rights.

Barack Obama has called the Constitution a “charter of negative liberties”, meaning it was written as a bad thing not a good thing because it limits the authority of government.  He was referring to the redistribution of wealth at the time but has since applied this same demented opinion to every liberty guaranteed to We the People.  Obama sees himself as above the Constitution and the law of the land.  He seesIl Duce Obama himself as a dictator, giving and taking away at his discretion.

The 2nd Amendment is under serious attack from both state and federal governments, on many fronts and by a diverse group of people.  It is no secret that the Democrats have long desired to establish their dictatorship by first disarming We the People.  This battle has been going on for years and isn’t anything new.  One new aspect, however, is the Veteran’s Administration sending letters to veterans stating they may not be mentally capable of handling their own affairs and therefore also not mentally capable of owning firearms.  There is an appeals process but that will result in the desired outcome; veterans “deemed” mentally incompetent and left without the means to defend themselves, their families, and their God-given rights, stripped of every right they fought to preserve for others.

What is frightening is the new allies of the Marxist Democrats.  House Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA-22) has come out and statKevin McCarthyed that gun control and immigration “can be done without help from Republicans”.  Odd, I thought McCarthy is a Republican, but says he will work with Democrats against Republicans. It seems as though neither political party much cares what the Constitution says, nor what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they wrote it.  Now we find the Republican Party establishment coming out in favor of various gun control schemes, all designed to ultimately render We the People as slaves of an autocratic dictatorship.

Several states, including Illinois, New York, California, and now Colorado, have come out with legislation that is clearly unconstitutional yet politicians on both sides of the aisle “deem” themselves wiser than our Founding Fathers and have decided they have the authority to Constitutionmake such decisions.  They will decide who can protect themselves and how that can be accomplished.  Some of the more prominent self-defense suggestions have been whistles, call-boxes, scissors, ink pens, wetting one’s pants, and it gets ridiculous beyond here.

As government officials at the federal and state levels seek to disarm We the People, they have ramped up the quantity, and lethality, of weapons possessed by such defense oriented agencies as the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA). YEP, that’s right! the group that forecasts hurricanes.  I am not sure why they need full automatic M-16’s and billions of rounds of ammunition but who am I to question the “elitists” in Washington????   Local areas are finding IED-proof armored cars popping up and helicopters flying over their cities firing machine guns.  The Department of Homeland Security (sic) just acquired 2700 armored vehicles, plus thousands of full automatic rifles, handguns, and several billion rounds of hollow point ammunition.  For the novice, hollow points cannot be used in war; they have been banned by the Geneva Convention.  And while there is some discussion about who these “Urban Rescue Vehicles” (with gun ports) actually belong to there is no question they are being fitted for urban warfare in American cities.

Much has been said and written about the eventuality that a Supreme Court case will once again decide if We the People can defend ourselves or not.  With the decision of John Roberts on Obamacare it is obvious the 2nd Amendment is in danger.  Who can citizens depend on to stand up for the Constitution and the God-given rights it guarantees?  We know Democrats despise liberty and will stop at nothing to enslave us.  We are reminded quite often that the Republican Party is no better.  The Republican establishment would rather “get along” with Democrats than do their duty to “uphold, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States of America”.

I believe that the freedoms engrained in the Constitution are OUR freedoms, given by God, and only acknowledged as sDon't Tread On Meuch and guaranteed by said Constitution.  Those who decide what the 2nd Amendment means are We the People.   If We the People allow any governmental entity; the federal government, state government, any court, or any politician, to determine our ability to defend ourselves from evil we will find ourselves as slaves to those who make such decisions.

Rights are given by God to individuals.  Those individuals confer authority and responsibility to others to govern in the best interests of We the People.  When government, at any level, “deems” themselves the final authority over our lives we find tyranny, suffering, poverty, and slavery.  The rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights are MY rights.  The Constitution does not give rights to government, it sets limits.  It limits the action government is allowed to take and provides for the people to be the final arbiter of what is legal or not legal.  Those sitting in their ivory towers making rules for We the People toFreedom Flag live by are stepping well across the line of Constitutional bounds in a number of categories.  They have decided they are wiser, smarter, and more worthy of deciding what is or is not permissible, and the Constitution be damned.

We the People must stand strong against this tyranny.  If allowed to fester, tyranny will envelop all it touches and grow a cancer that is fatal to a Republic.  When those seeking ultimate power are the ones who are judge, jury, and executioner justice will never prevail.  It is up to us, We the People, to stand up for the rights, values, and responsibilities given to us by Almighty God.  It is up to us to band together to preserve a liberty bought with the blood and lives of thousands of our predecessors.  It is up to us to preserve that Flag Exercise our Rightsliberty for our descendants.  If we cower in fear or dismiss the danger and allow this to go on unchallenged we will see generations of Americans living under the yoke of oppression such as has been seen in Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, Communist China, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, and other dictatorships.  I will not allow the Supreme Court, or any other government agency, to make me a slave.

I, for one, will not stand by and let this happen.  We the People have seen the greatest nation to ever exist slide into disrepair due to our neglect of our responsibilities to insure liberty for future generations.  WE have been asleep at the wheel as tyranny has been implemented slowly.  Now that We the people are awake it is incumbent that we act to preserve what liberty is left and fight to restore that which has been lost

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Is Rep. Markwayne Mullin Now John Boehner’s Spokesman?

I find each pronouncement by Congressman Mullin (R-OK-2) to be more and more enlightening as to his perception of his role in Markwayne MullinCongress, and ever more perplexing in my perception of his role in Congress.  Mullin is now telling us what John Boehner said to the Republican conference in their meetings, focusing on keeping control of the House in the 2014 election.  Hey, Markwayne, I guess you don’t realize it but We the People of the Oklahoma 2nd Congressional District didn’t elect you to come back here and tell us what John Boehner says.  We sent you to Washington D. C. (DE Cesspool) to TELL John Boehner what WE SAID!!!!!  I can find Boehner’s lame whining on any social network site, Facebook, Google, Twitter, and any number of television talking head shows; no need for you to come back and act as his spokesman.

This Continuing Resolution song and dance has to stop.  Markwayne stated in this interview  that he “wasn’t going to back himself into a corner” by saying he would vote against the CR if it doesn’t defund Obamacare.  This is the typical “Potomac Two-Step” we have heard from others before him; “don’t take a stand so no one can quote you, and don’t vote for or against anything that can be used against you in an election”.  No change in Washington from the OK-2nd District.

As it turns out Mullin voted in support of the Continuing Resolution, effectively saying the status quo is acceptable to him.  Spend!! Spend!! Spend!! is the order of the day and Mullin will “go along to get along” with Boehner and the others in his dictatorial cabal.  It seems that keeping promises and honoring his oath of office can wait until “next time”.

Tell me, Markwayne, when is “next time“ going to come?  Boehner has been saying “next time” for more than 2 years now and our country continues running (CR?) down the road to financial ruin.   I guess “being part of the Boehner team” is more important than honoring your oath of office and the promises you made to thousands of voters who believed you and put their confidence in you.  Wejohn-a-boehner thought you were a part of OUR TEAM, not Boehner’s team!!!

Mullin mentioned in the interview on KFAQ that he used his time in a recent speech on the floor of the House of Representatives to complain about “partisanship” and to urge everyone to “just get along”.  Isn’t that the same mantra we have heard from Republican establishment types for years now?  More of the “go along to get along” crap from someone I thought would go up there and fight for liberty in my name.

The reason I supported Mullin in the Republican runoff is that I was afraid if his opponent George Faught was elected we would get a mushy yes-man, and I did not want any more of such people in Congress.  I guess I was wrong about Mullin.

In his last appearance in Claremore Mullin stated several times that he “didn’t vote for Nancy Pelosi”.  Just a “heads-up”, Markwayne, neither did Dan Boren in his last term.  But Boren didn’t  vote for John Boehner either.  “Not voting for Nancy Pelosi” isn’t exactly a “get out of jail free card” in my book.  Boren didn’t vote for Pelosi in his last term and he also didn’t vote for the final draft of Obamacare.  He voted for it the first 7 times but not the last one, the one that everyone would see.  We could have kept Boren and nothing would be different in Congress with a Democrat sitting in the OK-2 seat.

Now, take a look at Oklahoma’s 1st District representative.  Jim Bridenstine doesn’t spend his time complaining about “partisanship”.  He is aligning himself with conservatives, not the establishment, and standing up for We the People.  He also refused to vote for Boehner as Jim BridenstineSpeaker because he promised in his campaign that he wouldn’t.  Bridenstine deposed former RINO John Sullivan in the 2012 primary elections.  Bridenstine also fulfilled one of his promises to voters by voting against the CR  .  He is aligning himself with those who are upholding their oath of office by fighting the political corruption going on in Washington, not bowing to the corruption that is party politics in Congress.

Boehner’s plan is always next time, never now.  I for one am tired of the “next time” mantra from Boehner and his patsy leadership team.  Rep. Jim Bridenstine is standing up for We the People and making a concerted effort to actually change the way things are done in Washington while Mullin whines about finger pointing, and then falls into lock-step with the very people he was sent to stop.

Instead of throwing in with the conservative faction in Congress, as expected by voters, Mullin has chosen to follow the lead of RINO’s Cole, Langford, and Lucas in bowing to John Boehner and his band of traitors.   Republican House Whip Kevin McCarthy is now saying they can get gun control and immigration passed “without support from Republicans”.  If that isn’t in the top ten of most outrageous staKevin McCarthytements I don’t know what would qualify.  This is the “leadership” Mullin voted for in the most important decision he will ever make in Congress.  Who still believes in the Republican Party???

When Mullin had the chance to change the direction of our government he folded.  His very first vote, the most important vote he will make, was for John Boehner to be Speaker of the House.  Now he whines about how things are being done.  WELL, DUH!!!!  What did you expect Markwayne???? You voted for a man who is known to be a dysfunctional clod and a fan of the white flag approach to fighting for liberty.  You voted for Boehner in spite of many in your district Eagle watching GOPurging you to help remove him.  Now you tell us what Boehner says!!! I don’t care, nor does anyone else care, what Boehner says.  Your job there is to tell Boehner and his henchmen what WE the PEOPLE say.

If Mullin can’t manage to represent WE the People of the 2nd District any better than this he might as well come back to Broken Arrow and run his business.  We don’t need another “yes-man” in Washington.  I bet we can find someone in Northeastern Oklahoma who has the courage to stand against the Boehner Crime Family and represent the 2nd Congressional District in the fashion we expect.  I wonder if hiring a campaign consultant he owed just over $60,000 as his chief of staff is a factor in the Mullin approach to “bi-partisanship”.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
