To my brothers in the 101st Airborne
I have to admit that I was skeptical about the UN ever getting their act together enough to construct an Arms Trade Treaty that they could all agree on, but I underestimated the level of cooperation attainable by that body when their target is liberty. With the terrorist-exporting state of Iran in a leadership role, the committee has been plowing down obstacles and rapidly moving toward an agreement. The final treaty language is expected to be released by the end of July, and the Obama administration has committed to supporting it – if it doesn’t interfere with their interpretation of the Second Amendment.
That’s not a very big “if” when you consider that we’re talking about Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, both of whom have expressed support for the Second Amendment and in the same breath endorsed the idea of banning entire classes of firearms.
So far a majority of US Senators have signed letters declaring their opposition to the treaty – if it interferes with the Second Amendment. NRA’s Wayne LaPierre testified before the UN committee voicing NRA’s strong opposition to any provisions that might interfere with the Second Amendment, and numerous conservative leaders, gun rights groups, and media pundits have denounced the treaty for the threat it represents to the Second Amendment…
That’s just fine, as far as it goes, but there is much more to be concerned about with this treaty than its ratification or its impact on the Second Amendment. It is a mistake to make the Second Amendment our only objection. The fact is that the Second Amendment cannot be overruled by any treaty, and it is highly unlikely that any significant number of senators would ever vote for any treaty that even appeared to try and do so (though it should be remembered that ratification requires a 2/3 vote of senators present, not 2/3 of the entire Senate). What is missing from the arguments is the core philosophy of fundamental rights upon which the Second Amendment is based.
The Second Amendment is simply a statement reiterating an existing right that is possessed by all peoples – a fundamental human right to self-defense and self-determination. That fundamental human right does not exist only for Americans and is not dependent on the Constitution for its existence. For US opponents to the UNATT to focus solely on how the treaty might impact the rights of Americans, is short-sighted and selfish. It is also self-defeating.
As the leading proponents of liberty in the world, the US has an obligation to oppose anti-liberty initiatives wherever they erupt. This is the only reason for US involvement in the UN. If we, as a nation, are not going to stand up in the UN and fight for human rights and justice for all people everywhere, then our involvement in the UN is a hoax and should be ended.

A shocking Federal Security Service (FSB) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that last week an “intense” battle erupted in the US State of Michigan between military forces loyal to the Obama regime and American rebels that killed at least 380 men, women and children who had gathered to oppose their nations slide towards a totalitarian dictatorship.
According to this report, nearly 500 people opposed to the Obama regime had assembled for a “clandestine” meeting in the Michigan country of Alpena in an effort to form a 50-State alliance of local law enforcement and political officers seeking to “turn the tide” of their nations path towards dictatorship even, should it be necessary, by armed force.
The FSB states in this report that hostilities erupted when the American rebel forces gathered at this meeting indentified “several” undercover FBI informants who were seeking to “escalate tensions” and arrested them whereupon, “within minutes,” a contingent of “heavily armed” Obama regime federal police forces attempted to, in turn, arrest these rebel leaders.
After a “prolonged skirmish” between these rebel forces and Obama regime federal police, this report continues, the US Military launched a series of airstrikes, the largest being a 2,000 lb laser guided bomb that hit in the middle of those gathered at this meeting killing over three quarters of them instantly.
To how powerful this blast was we can read as reported by a local Michiganreporter named Bob Powell who wrote: “At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, 6/6/2012, a mysterious explosion shook homes over hundreds of square miles in Northeastern Michigan. The ground shaking explosion was heard from Presque Isle to Lincoln, and out west as far as Hillman.”
Important to note is that this reporter was swiftly detained and arrested by Obama forces when he attempted to gather more information.
Over the next nearly 48-hours since the initial bomb drop upon the rebels, this report continues, Obama regime military forces “numbering in the high-hundreds” descended upon Michigan [photo 2nd left] utilizing nearly 85 combat transport helicopters and A-10 Thunderbolt air-to-ground missile equipped fighter aircraft.
Confirming the chaos of this battle we can, also, read as confirmed by the Natural Society News Service which, in part, says:
“Eyewitnesses on the ground near the media-blacked-out elevated radiation zone near the border of Indiana and Michigan, where radiation levels hundreds of times higher than normal were quickly removed from public viewing by the EPA, are now sending in a large number of photos and videos documenting massive explosions accompanied by unmarked helicopters, A-10 Thunderbolts, and military personnel.
Those on the ground report that the explosions are ‘loud and deep’, sounding like fireworks with a kick. The explosions are oftentimes followed up with a squadron of helicopters or other aircraft, oftentimes black and unmarked. One Michigan resident reports the following, and is then backed by dozens of organic comments which confirm the findings:
“EXPLOSIONS EVERYWHERE! Also, Large helicopter heading away from Local Air Force base flying toward scene of explosions! These explosions are seriously consistent, loud booms for the last hour or more.”

Government by crony corporate socialists
Now Obama has another vote-buying Wall Street scheme. The Obama Administration via the Feds are buying up all the good bonds thru QE (what is this now, QE 5-6 in reality?) while giving foreign banks a discount to unload subprime trash back into the economy – major bailout!
The following comment from a poster (named RightGuard) on Bloomberg summarized it nicely –
Violence and intimidation are coming to the streets of America – if the Communist Party USA gets its way.
Emboldened by their “friend” Barack Obama’s Labor Day speech in Detroit, the communists and their labor and “social movement” allies are preparing to confront the “Tea Party” and the GOP in the streets of America in an attempt to intimidate their way back into power in 2012.
The plan is simple. Obama and the Democrats will create large Federally funded jobs programs, which will be controlled by the unions and the left. This will create large armies of desperate and easily manipulated people who will owe their living to the “great helmsman.”
The left will then use these people to intimidate anyone who stands in their way. Though Obama will have funded these armies, he will exploit their aggressive demands for more handouts as merely an expression of the “popular will.” He will then give the “people” (i.e. the left) what they want – more socialism.
This was the strategy the communists employed in the 1930s under Roosevelt to move the US way to the left. The communists set up large armies of unemployed to march on Washington. FDR responded by setting up huge Federal public work schemes, which the communists then took over and used to build still more pressure for socialism.

Rep. Allen West was a guest on Laura Ingraham‘s radio show Tuesday and said one of the main problems with the GOP was this idea of ‘leadership by entitlement.’ It was a conversation about Newt Gingrich, in which West pointed out that while the former speaker of the House may be a ‘fighter,’ he’s one ‘carrying a 200-pound rucksack’ of political history. The Huffington Post had the story:
Lamar Smith: Get Special Counsel on Solyndra
WASHINGTON — The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee on Monday called for an independent investigator to look into a $528 million loan approved by the Obama administration for a now-bankrupt solar energy company.
Rep. Lamar Smith, a Republican from Texas, said an outside lawyer is needed to determine “whether politics played a role” in the Energy Department loan for California-based Solyndra Inc., which declared bankruptcy this month and laid off its 1,100 workers.
“An independent examiner will uncover the truth about whether politics played a role in influencing the Obama administration to favor Solyndra over more financially stable loan applicants and thus ensure the integrity of the bankruptcy process for all creditors,” Smith wrote in a three-page letter to Attorney General Eric Holder.
The FBI and the Energy Department’s inspector general are already investigating the Solyndra loan, which has become a flashpoint in a partisan debate over subsidies for so-called green jobs.
The Fremont, Calif.-based company was the first renewable-energy company to receive a loan guarantee under a stimulus-law program to encourage green energy and was frequently touted by the Obama administration as a model. President Barack Obama visited the company’s Silicon Valley headquarters last year, and Vice President Joe Biden spoke by satellite at its groundbreaking.
