America Is Changing

America Is Changing

In 13 months, we will defeat and send into well-deserved obscurity most of the violently anti-gun, anti-American candidates who are monopolizing the airways with whining. And good riddance.

But all of the “issues,” real or invented, that O’Rourke, Booker, Klobuchar, Castro, Harris and the rest are blathering about today will remain with us for many years. The vehemence of their attacks on America has, I believe, begun to change and divide this democratic republic permanently.

* How do we stop Planned Parenthood and find good homes for the 330,000 babies the organization murders every year?
* How do we end the “my-way-or-the-highway” attitude that has brought our government to a halt?
* How do we convince millennials that without viable borders, we will have chaos?
* How do we remind everyone who is not already a millionaire that capitalism offers a chance — the only chance in the world — to join that exclusive club?
* How, with the study of history dropped in favor of STEM studies, do we show that differences between rich and poor are part of every civilized society … and that this is a good thing?
* How do we address the basic issues that cause individuals to pick up a weapon and indiscriminately harm others?

The Use of Weapons in Society

We in the concealed carry community may be interested in all of the above issues, but we have a special concern about the use of weapons in our society.

Because they present history at variance with the lens of political correctness, many classic books and writers are now banned from school and public libraries. (Rick Sapp photo)

Whether we find ways to reduce violence in America or not, whether there is an “epidemic of gun violence” as the buffoon candidates screech or not, if the Socialist left wins elections, we will find our firearms options severely limited. Should the screechers come to power and dominate politics in America (as they do the mass media now), the Second Amendment will not stand.

The fact that these “leaders” do not understand the difference between a semi-automatic and a tank or between a hair clip and a semi-auto magazine won’t stop them from implementing anti-gun agendas. Neither will their anti-gun agendas, if fulfilled, put a dent in violence in America.

What’s to Be Done?

We must address two factors to make a dent in America’s “epidemic of gun violence.” First, we must strengthen our mental health community and insurance support for counseling and intervention. Second, inner-city communities with high rates of gangs and violence must recognize that violence is a cultural issue and can only be solved within the culture. The imposition of programs, outreach and activism of all sorts will fail unless communities accept the responsibility to teach their children that the “culture of violence” is unacceptable.

The concealed carry community is part of the great silent majority who live in “fly-over land” between the coasts. But we can ill afford to be silent as the Socialist left reshapes our country. In the end, the attack on guns, religious faith and fundamental American principles is an attack on us. It’s personal. America may very well be changing, but this is a culture war. And we cannot afford to lose.

If there is enough tinkering with the voting booths, Trump may not be re-elected. That is what fears me. Last elections showed that it is not that hard for “them” to screw with the voting machines. “They” did not think that Trump would get so many votes, and “they” were very ill prepared. This time “they” know that Trump is going to get the votes, so if they cannot destroy him before elections, I feel “they” will see he don’t get elected, at any cost.

Does no $hyt ring a bell in regard to the title of the article? And yes, people are very stupid, in fact, the more stupid you are the more likely you are to get into politics, Mr. Trump excepted.

For all of the do gooders we have in this Country facts make no difference, crime is down with the exception of about 4 Cities, and no they will never understand, because they do not want to understand. If they every bother to learn what they are talking about then they will think like us, and us is who they are against, so why would they ever want to be like us?

You have to keep in mind that the best job these people will ever have is to be elected to some office. And the only better job is to run for a higher office, these people will do anything to keep their job and will set their own mother on fire for a better job. There is no lie too great, no trick too dirty, whatever they can get away with is just fine. Every other person on the planet is expendable as long as they get elected.

Why would you spend $1 Billion to get a job which pays less than $450.000.00, it does not make any sense, but take a look at Uncle Joe, his whole family has been enriched by his being elected to every office which he has ever held and he cannot even find his way home all by himself.

We had better hope things change, but I mean for the American People to actually wake up to the facts which are very simple to find, you only have to be willing to learn and that my friends is why change is so very hard!

It isn’t the guns that they are after. It’s control! Plain and simple they want total control over the people of this great nation.

I’ve said it several times before, but those FEMA camps were put in place for some particular purpose, and it’s never been satisfactorily explained or proved to the general public who may soon become those camp occupants. If you just look around, I believe the state and federal governments already have all power they believe they need to exercise martial law and simply collect all the firearms the FFLs were required to keep records on about who and where they are presently located. Label me paranoid, but I still believe it.s better to be prepared than not.

Just two years ago these same Dems were saying “nobody wants to take your guns we just want common sense gun laws”. Today they want to take our guns. We all know that this was their plan all along but now they are not hiding it and much to the chagrin of the establishment Democrats, they are saying it. We need to teach these little socialists a lesson by soundly defeating their sorry butts in the upcoming. I don’t worry much about Mr Trump getting re-elected but we all need to work to take back the House and increase our lead in the Senate where there are a half dozen RINOs we just can’t trust. If we can do this we will set the progressive movement back 20 years.

By Bruce Moyer: March 2015: The Most Powerful Court You Have Never Heard Of


Washington Watch | March 2015
By Bruce Moyer

Long The disclosures by Edward Snowden about the size and scope of the National Security Agency’s surveillance activities, both in the United States and abroad, has prompted a flurry of Congressional proposals aimed at reframing the foreign intelligence- gathering process. While the thrust of these proposals is aimed at the intelligence-gathering process itself, several would also alter the operations of the federal court in Washington that provides judicial oversight of intelligence gathering and, in fact, authorized the con- troversial NSA telephone metadata collection effort disclosed by Snowden.

The court we’re talking about is the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, or FISC. Described by CNN as “the most power- ful court you have never heard of,” the panel plays a significant role in the sensitive balance of foreign intelligence-gathering and civil liberties. Established in 1978 by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the FISC hears applications from the government and decides whether to issue orders approving certain electronic surveil- lance activities for foreign intelligence purposes. Another Article III tribunal co-located in Washington, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review (FISCR), reviews the rulings of the FISA court. Collectively these are referred to as the FISA courts.

Unique Among Federal Courts
The FISC is unique among federal courts in its narrow jurisdiction, the selection of its judges, and the secret conduct of its day-to-day operations. The Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court plays an especially engaged role in the affairs of the court. The FISC’s 11 district court judges and review court’s judges are “designated” by the Chief Justice, foregoing the usual process of presidential appoint- ment and Senate confirmation. Similarly, the Chief Justice designates the chief judge of the FISC and the FISCR. The judges of both courts serve one term of seven years and are not eligible for a second term. Because of the sensitive nature of its docket, the FISC and the Review Court operate largely in secret and in a nonadversarial fash- ion. Since its creation in 1978, the FISC has operated primarily in an ex parte manner with the government as the only party presenting arguments to the court and seeking warrants approving of electronic surveillance, physical searches, the use of a pen register or a trap- and-trace device, or the access to business ecords for foreign intelligence and international terrorism investigations.

The FISC operates out of a secure location in the federal court- house in Washington, D.C. Each week, one of the eleven district court judges that comprise the FISC is on duty in Washington. Most of the FISC’s work is handled by the duty judge with the assistance of a small group of attorneys and clerk’s office personnel who staff the court. On occasion, judges outside of the duty-week rotation handle more complex or time-consuming matters, at the direction of the Presiding Judge.

The secret and nonadversarial nature of the FISC’s proceedings and the revelation of the court’s approval of the NSA telephone meta- data collection effort have spurred several Congressional proposals that would change some of the underlying practices of the FISA courts. The most controversial proposal involves the court’s appoint- ment of a special advocate when the court is considering a novel or significant interpretation of law. Other proposals would establish en banc panels of the FISC and would alter the voting rules of the FISC in an attempt to create a higher bar for the approval of government surveillance activities.

A Special Advocate Before the FISA Courts?
The appointment of a special advocate within the FISA courts has stirred the greatest controversy. The House last year passed legislation (H.R. 3361) giving the FISA courts substantial discretion to determine when to appoint an advocate, as well as decide the nature and scope of the assistance to be provided by the advocate. A broader Senate measure (S. 2685) last year would have more rigidly mandated the appointment of an advocate to make specific argu- ments involving privacy and civil liberties. The Senate bill stalled at the end of 2014, carrying the debate into 2015 with some urgency. Section 215 of the Patriot Act, which authorizes electronic foreign intelligence surveillance activities, expires on June 1.

Proponents of the appointment of a special advocate argue that the nature of a non-adversarial process prevents the FISA courts from hearing opposing viewpoints on difficult legal issues, especially ones involving privacy and civil liberty interests. The Federal Judiciary is not so sure. In a letter to Congress last year, Judge John Bates, then director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts (and a for- mer FISC judge) embraced the House legislation’s approach, which imparts to the FISA court the discretionary authority to appoint an advocate, a power the court already inherently maintains. Bates criticized the Senate’s approach, which directs the FISC to appoint an advocate in certain kinds of cases. “… [W]e are concerned that insert- ing into FISA court proceedings an advocate with a statutory mandate to make specific arguments would raise substantial legal questions and impede the courts’ work without furthering the interests of privacy or civil liberties,” Bates wrote. Those questions involve separation of powers and judicial independence considerations.

FBA Panel Session on the FISA Courts
These concerns and the broader challenge of balancing national security, privacy, and civil liberties will be spotlighted at the FBA Mid-year Meeting on Saturday morning, March 28, in Arlington, Virginia, when an esteemed panel of judges, lawyers, and academics will debate the pros and cons of altering the FISA courts and their operations. Consult the FBA website for further details.

Obama’s End Game Explained: Former KGB Agent Explains What’s In Store For U.S. Leftists And Liberals

“We can’t expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism,
but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism,
until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism.”
Nikita Khrushchev

Many people are now educated in the horror of past wars, mostly WWI & WWII, for our present generation had parents and/or grandparents that were involved. We also have a generation of people that witnessed the Korean, and Vietnam conflicts. There is now a group that has had direct contact with the proxy wars of the Middle East. Citizens of the USA to this day, take vacations to Europe and contemplate on how this could happen at all, how these people were unable to stop it, and why others remained silent when they knew it was happening. Americans are well aware of the extermination camps in Germany under Hitler, but forget about the 66 million plus, that were exterminated in Russia under Stalin, many were Christian.

If we have learned anything through historical event such as these, it would be to never underestimate the power and greed that runs this war machine, and that we are not exempt here in the US. The writing is on the wall, and many Americans are ignoring it. While WWIII is emerging through the the global chaos, as a nation we must get it together. I see people walking through the same political fog of the upcoming elections, and they remain unaware that only the people can save America now, and why this is a fact.

We know that the 9/11 Boogie Man created by GW Bush was a lie, but now live with the threat of ISIS screaming ‘death to America’ as they infiltrate our open borders (all funded, trained, and equipped via the US, UK, and Israeli governments etc.). We have an influx of illegal drug cartels, and human trafficking experts walking into the US. They are hardened criminals, armed by the US GOV, given a free pass by none other than Barack Hussein Obama, or at least that is his name these past 8 years. The increased privatized prison for profit population and the drug war on the streets, enables cheap labor provided by the inmates, so they do not need to give you a job! That lack of importance is a huge step, citizens are now undesirable, they have taken your worth away. Illegals can offer them more without complaining about their liberties and pay scale, heck they even keep the politicians in power with their vote!

Our police force is out of control, run amok, killing more people this quarter than England had in 200 years! Many for no crime at all! Scandalous IRS behavior has stripped land and assets without the victims even being charged at all, and they have no recourse whatsoever. Now they want our free speech, guns, and our health. Feeding us GMO foods, spraying the skies with chemicals then taxing us for the wreckage of the climate, and taking children for noncompliance with their poisonous vaccines… You cannot make this up!

Now that our dollar has fallen through the termite infested floorboards, after systematically being hijacked by the unconstitutional Federal Reserve Act of 1913, and we are in debt to China for the cheap goods Americans buy at the mall every week, we are more than fractured nation. These Bankers continue to profit off us like the parasites they are (yes you remember if you lost your house while you bailed them out). While we are spiraling into the abyss of this communist regime, I cannot seem to get anyone to turn off the ball game, stop watching “reality shows”, or to understand that the mainstream television news is paid propaganda conditioning for the populace with scripted lies (paid for too, by these gangsters).

Now let us look at the fact that we ARE at war with Russia, most of Europe is. NATO insists on provoking Russia because the Elite wants them to, they want to control Russia, Ukraine, and their resources. Russian and Chinese troops, have been here training in our backyards for a long time under UN negotiations as what the press will call ‘peacekeeping troops.’ They have assistance too! None other than the Israeli trained police force, and DHS officers that are here to disarm Americans under the NDAA. If YOU were training for the UN on Russian soil, and President Putin had our country surrounded at home, as we do Russia right now, how would you react to Russians there? Russia does not want to answer to this cabal anymore, and we owe China a lot of money. Trillions. I suspect they will more than likely take advantage of a land grab here, because we cannot pay up. They have threatened to take Hawaii already, and Putin is not so strangely ready to attack our whole southern border, arming Mexico and South America. Yes, well, what do you want? NATO took the Ukraine away from his region, then sanctioned HIM!

To add insult to injury, our government and congress do not function for the people at all anymore, falling prey to the Vatican/Israeli/CIA backed blackmail in which JFK tried to warn us about, until he was assassinated by them. With his records sealed for thirty years, we had no clue to the extent of this. Israel is still in violation of the Nuclear Proliferation Agreement, and has the nerve to march into our Congress, insisting Iran has no right to have weapons, while they have an arsenal, most likely paid for by the US taxpayers under the ongoing aid to Israel myth. We watch them pummel and destroy Palestine daily. More threats of the terror in the mid east tales by Netanyahu, only this time millions of Muslims have been killed and displaced throughout the whole region due to the 9/11 lie, by the US military and US/Israeli backed ISIS! Whom do you think has to answer for this? We do! If you live in Florida, you had better hope Cuba is not the new landing pad for ISIS.

Israel knows the world is not to happy about their behavior, as we were/are fighting their wars in the mid east for the elite and truth is out of the bag. America has been used by the cabal and we let it happen! In our defense, we were lied to, but in the age of technology, people had more fun on FB calling the ‘liberty activist movement’ tin hats, conspiracy theorists, and antisemitic instead of researching real history. Note that we are not antisemite, but do not promote the killing of innocent people everywhere in the name of oil and control over the petrodollar, including the deaths of our own military personnel, and citizens that perished on 9/11 under the GW Bush/Israeli/Saudi operation. I will not defend the behavior of Israel, they are no ally to us. It has nothing to do with the citizens there. I take offense when they have infiltrated every fiber of our society, with a goal enslave the American people completely.Their dual citizenship status, is Israel first, and always has been.

So, you ask what is happening as we pump out the truth for you every single day and you refuse to listen. If we could get more Americans on board, we might have a chance to escape the inevitable extinction of the free society we once enjoyed. We do not have this anymore, or have you even noticed? No one is opposed to indefinite detention without due process for merely being an American patriot, or perhaps a Christian, maybe even just posting on FB against the ‘state?’ Your Constitution is gone in a flash and you question us now, after resenting our observations! People also have to understand that putting trust in the politicians they elect, is the very REASON for the type of government we have under this Constitution, it is called a republic! You need to participate in order for it to remain in the hands of ‘We the people’. Our founding fathers escaped the tyranny of Europe, and knew too well that no government can be trusted except one that is governed by the people themselves. They left you instructions!!! Forget the election choices of 2016, we need to take the wheel, no politician can, and is going to save this, the elections are rigged by the elite, Congress is tied up and gagged.

In essence folks, I have a newsflash for you… WE HAVE BEEN ATTACKED FROM WITHIN!!! Believe me, this is not going to end like all the other growing pains that America has survived. This is end game. We ARE at war, we are surrounded, and only YOU can stand up with the rest of us and fight for your freedom and for that of your families. Time ticks real fast, as these Jade Helm drills across America go rogue on or before July 15th and they will round you up, separate you from your families. FEMA is your new home, no need to pack, by this time you will have lost it all. Forget the dollar, it is gone! Get used to it.

The rest IS history, what happened under Stalin, Hitler, and the others has now been arranged for us by none other than the same bloodlines that did it back then, including the Bush family(Nazis), under the guise of our illegal alien president! It is just a new generation of genocide, depopulation, power and property grabs, but you cannot sit this one out, sorry to break the news. No free pass, the camps are built, they are up and running all over the US right under your nose! They even have your transportation arranged!

Do not ask how it happened in WWII. It happened just like it has happened here and now… Denial, arrogance, and a systematic breakdown of a nation through the elite 1% that have been running the world for years behind our global backs due to the “nonparticipation” within government given to us by our forefathers (for the people, by the people). In most cases they outright executed the real Royals and took power from nations across the world. We had protection from that, and did not exercise that power in numbers large enough.

Someone that KNOWS how this happens, how this works, is telling you to get up NOW! Perhaps hearing it from the KGB might help you realize that your country, your money, your liberties, and even freedom of religious beliefs are teetering on the edge, and there is not much time at all before it is all just a memory. Act now or this is over.

See the short video below, and feel free to research the information here on our website referring to Operation Jade Helm coming to a city near you July 15th or before. This is NOT going away.

I also urge you to get in the know about your assets, and how to protect some money legally before the crash of the dollar. You may keep up with news here at TLB, and as well our partnered site National Liberty Alliance, which is the US Common Law Grand Jury across 50 states and over 3,000 counties. Join, their site is informative as to what the US people have done up to this point to protect themselves. We need more people to get involved, to volunteer a little bit of their time.


To conclude on a positive note, If americans wake up, join the fight, we can do this! Do not throw America, your lives, and your loved ones to these wolves… Look at where THAT has gotten us. Get your groove shoes on, the resistance is here! MC
