    Default Are you involved in the GC issue?

    If not, here's your invitation to do something.

    Should Republican Senators Join Senators Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Mike Lee and Jim Inhofe To Filibuster Any And All Legislative Assaults on the Second Amendment… Or Should They Capitulate and Get Behind RINO Proposed "Compromise" Gun-Control Legislation

    It might seem like a question with an obvious answer. But at this very moment, 40 Senate Republicans are either confused or are secretly planning to side with at least one senior GOP Senator who mistakenly thinks it better to
    "compromise" with Barack Obama and his gun-grabbing colleagues than to stand firm against any attacks on our Second Amendment rights.

    Well... we're going to help them end their confusion. And make no mistake...
    we're not ASKING them to filibuster the Obama-Feinstein Gun Grab... we're DEMANDING that they filibuster the Obama-Feinstein Gun Grab... and we're ACCEPTING NOTHING SHORT OF A FILIBUSTER.

    Why Defeat Barack Obama When We Can Capitulate To Him?

    It seems like insanity… even though Senators Paul, Lee, Cruz, Rubio and Inhofe are trying to rally support for a filibuster, others in the Republican caucus are SABOTAGING those efforts and calling for
    "compromise."

    At this very moment, Senator Charles Grassley is crafting his own version of
    "gun-control legislation" and according to The Hill, this act of sabotage is gaining traction.

    Our reaction must be clear. Sam Rolley, writing for the Personal Liberty Digest, put it this way:
    "Conservative critics of the forthcoming GOP gun bill have said that any effort by Republicans to address any aspect of gun control is going too far. And it is yet to be seen whether Senators like Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who have vowed to filibuster any new gun legislation, will embrace the GOP version of gun control."

    Why is it that Republican leaders in Congress reflexively and instinctively compromise even after being shown a clear and fool-proof path to unconditional victory? Why ask why?

    Simply put,
    they must be stopped. And as you have proven so many times in the past, only patriotic Americans like you can stop them.

    You need to let them know, in no uncertain terms, that as far as you are concerned, any Member of the Senate who DOES NOT openly participate in a filibuster of the Obama-Feinstein Gun Grab is effectively voting in favor of the Obama-Feinstein Gun Grab.

    That's a message they will understand. That's a message they will heed. But
    the time to take decisive action is upon us… the time is now.

    Do Not Be Deceived By Harry Reid's Procedural Shenanigans. Your Second Amendment Rights Are On The Chopping Block.

    When Senator Dianne Feinstein proposed her gun grab,
    patriotic Americans like you drew a line in the sand and sent tens of thousands of faxes and letters to Washington... and our elected officials got the message loud-and-clear.

    In response, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid appeared to bend to public pressure and announced that he was going to strip the assault weapons ban provisions from the bill and ask Feinstein to offer those provisions as an amendment to the bill.

    But don't be fooled by Reid's procedural trick or Feinstein's token objections. Our job is far from done.

    There's an old expression in Washington:
    If at first you don't deceive, try, try again. And Obama, Reid and Feinstein aren't backing down one single, solitary inch.

    Feinstein's feelings have not changed since that fateful day when she proclaimed:
    "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them - Mr. and Mrs. America turn ‘em all in – I would have done it."

    Yes... it's a trick, a ploy to allow a handful of Democrats and RINOs, who represent red states, to vote against the amendment and THEN turn right around, once the amendment has passed, and vote in favor of the entire bill. In short, they'll vote AGAINST it, BEFORE they vote FOR it.

    Why? ... So a handful of Democrats and RINOs who represent red states can go back home and LIE to the voters.
    'I'm on record,' they'll bloviate. 'I voted against banning weapons because the right to keep and bear arms is enshrined in our Constitution.'

    It's an old trick... it's a deplorable trick... and this time around, we're not going to let them get away with it. A handful of brave elected officials are threatening to filibuster the Obama-Feinstein Gun Grab.
    Senators Paul, Rubio, Lee, Inhofe and Cruz need your help right now.


    Barack Obama Hasn’t Thrown In The Towel. He Is Moving Forward… Full Steam Ahead.
    A speech in Colorado just days ago, Obama used police officers as props. Surrounded by a sea of blue uniforms, the Campaigner-In-Chief pitched his gun-control legislation yet again.

    Days prior, he surrounded himself with 21 mothers who lost children in the Newtown, Connecticut, tragedy. Using the White House as a stage, Barack Obama proclaimed:
    "Shame on us if we've forgotten. I haven't forgotten those kids."

    No… Shame on YOU, Barack Obama.

    Make no mistake, Obama isn’t giving up because he knows he can win… and he isn't going for your guns to save the lives of children. He knows all too well that his assault on the Second Amendment will do nothing to stop such tragedies. He knows that his efforts will only infringe on the rights of law-abiding Americans. And
    only you have the power to stop him.

    Senator Cruz had the courage to say that it was
    "saddening" to see Barack Obama "once again, try to take advantage of this tragic murder to promote an agenda that will do nothing to stop violent crime, but will undermine the constitutional rights of all law-abiding Americans."

    Cruz is right. And even though every Member of the U.S. Senate (or at least the Republican Members of the Senate) should be standing with Cruz… they aren’t. And
    right now, it is the duty of every patriotic American to stand with Cruz and let the rest of our elected officials know exactly what the American people want them to do.

    More Dirty Tricks…

    Staged events aren't the only tricks Mr. Obama has up his sleeve. The Hill recently reported that Obama
    "has used his executive powers to... create a million-dollar ad campaign…"

    And in a totally separate article, The Hill also reported:
    "At the same time, gun control groups were staging a 'Day to Demand Action' with more than 100 rallies and other events planned from Connecticut to California. This was on top of a $12 million TV ad campaign financed by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg..."

    We don't have millions of taxpayer and Bloomberg dollars for television ad campaigns and propaganda rallies with expensive rent-a-mobs... but we do have another weapon...

    And it is a much more potent weapon. National Review Online recently reported on something you didn't hear from the lame-stream media. When Rand Paul staged his now famous 13-hour filibuster the polls showed
    "a 50-point shift in public opinion toward his position."

    Senator Mike Lee commented:
    "Once it became clear what the principle was that was being stood for, the public naturally followed."

    When Paul staged his first filibuster... we didn't see it coming. We had no warning and we had no time to mount a campaign of support.

    But
    now that we know what may be coming, we have no excuse not to make our voices heard and help make it happen.
    Our Second Amendment Rights Are Non-Negotiable.

    In a recent alert to supporters and activists, Gun Owners of American summed up the situation perfectly:

    "We are beyond the point of negotiating our demise with people who have made it clear that their objective is to destroy us.

    "The only solution is to oppose EVERY SINGLE GUN CONTROL proposal. Every single one."


    You know that... we know that... and now it's time for Congress to get the message. Our Second Amendment right are non-negotiable and the Obama-Feinstein Gun Grab MUST be filibustered.

    No negotiations… No compromises… Period.

    Please join us in driving that point home right here and right now!

    From Gun Controls favorite Lefty...












    Quote of the day by Dianne Feinstein






















    Dianne Feinstein: "All vets are mentally ill and government should prevent them from owning firearms"




























    Some times even the L.A. Times gets it right.







    Kurt Nimmo: "Senator Feinstein insults all U.S. Veterans as she flays about in a vain attempt to save her bill."

    Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times:

    "Frankly, I don't know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we're Number One. There's no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on 'Macbeth'. The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don't know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words."

    -- Columnist Burt Prelutsky, Los Angeles Times

    when an editorial writer who is presumably well educated in journalism, grammar, vocabulary and literature, and who has the resources of printed and electronic thesaurus as well as many colleagues and co-workers to call on in his work, uses the words "dingbats" and "jackasses" in the same paragraph.......he is trying to tell his readers something important!

    Our Senator voted to end the filibuster. That cinches it for the Democrats in another 5 years. No one is going to bust their humps or give money to re-elect Senator Heller R-NV.

    Curious as to whom you would consider to be a RINO. Was Pres. George Bush a RINO?
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    In today's news...


    Former Louisiana Republican Party Chairman Boysie Bollinger has a good reason for breaking with his party and backing Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu for re-election in 2014.
    Landrieu helped enact legislation to speed work at Bollinger Shipyards on fast response cutters. Her efforts came at the same time that the Coast Guard was seeking to recoup millions of dollars from another Lockport shipyard for producing "unseaworthy and unusable" deep-water cutters.
    Landrieu has said Bollinger employs a highly skilled workforce that has performed well for the Coast Guard. Doing the work more quickly on the fast response cutters, she said, would produc efficiencies that will save taxpayers $30 million. She said the project provides hundreds of well-paying jobs.
    In announcing this week that he and fellow Republican fundraiser Joe Canizaro are helping Landrieu raise money for her 2014 campaign bid, Bollinger said, "People know that at the end of the day, Mary always fights for our state."

    That's the number one problem with the Senate. They are all so busy making sure they bring home the bacon... They end up screwing the rest of the country. Voters in every state are at fault because they (we) all want the pork to keep rolling in, yet we bitch about the national debt, lack of a balanced budget etc...

    Franco, you are one of the biggest hypocrites on the board on this issue. If anyone pounds their chest about the fiscal problems of the country more than you, who is it? Yet, you brag about the Louisiana Pork Producer? Remember the Lousiana Purchase during the Obamacare buy-offs? Shes bought and paid for. Give me a break.


    Landrieu’s Louisiana Purchase
    The Final Passage Of ObamaCare Left In Place The Louisiana Purchase. “Retains $300 million in extra Medicaid aid for Louisiana, which had helped win support for the Senate health bill from Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La. The state is still struggling to recover from Hurricane Katrina.” (“Cornhusker Kickback Gets The Boot In Health Bill,” The Associated Press, 3/18/10)
    ObamaCare’s “Louisiana Purchase” Will Give Louisiana An Extra $4.3 Billion In Medicaid Funds As A Result Of A “Drafting Error.” “Do you remember the ‘Louisiana Purchase?’ I don’t mean Thomas Jefferson’s acquisition of land from Napoleon, but rather Democrats’ acquisition of Sen. Mary Landrieu’s (D., La.) support for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Landrieu, critics believe, pledged her vote in exchange for gaining $200 million additional federal funds for Louisiana’s Medicaid program. Except that, due to a drafting error, the law ended up giving Louisiana $4.3 billion in extra Medicaid funds — more than twenty times the assigned amount.” (Avik S. A. Roy, “The New Louisiana Purchase: ObamaCare’s $4.3 Billion Boondoggle,” The Atlantic, 3/6/12)
    The Centers For Medicare And Medicaid Services Said That ObamaCare Will Cost More Because The Law Increased Federal Subsidies To Louisiana Rather Than Decreased Them “As Originally Intended.” “However, in November 2011, when the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) tried to make sense of the legislation, they came up with a much larger number: $4.3 billion. This was, in part, because the text of the law didn’t phase out the adjustment in two years, as originally intended, but rather increased the federal subsidy in out-years.” (Avik S. A. Roy, “The New Louisiana Purchase: ObamaCare’s $4.3 Billion Boondoggle,” The Atlantic, 3/6/12)
    Louisiana Was Supposed To Receive Only $200 Million Under A Section Of ObamaCare “Whose Main Purpose Is To Ensure That Only Louisiana Benefits.” “Section 2006 of PPACA, a ‘Special Adjustment to FMAP Determination for Certain States Recovering from a Major Disaster,’ was designed to temporarily increase the federal government’s FMAP contribution to Louisiana to the tune of around $200 million. It contains extremely complicated legislative language, whose main purpose is to ensure that only Louisiana benefits from the specified FMAP increase.” (Avik S. A. Roy, “The New Louisiana Purchase: ObamaCare’s $4.3 Billion Boondoggle,” The Atlantic, 3/6/12)
    Louisiana Has Already Received More Than $700 Million In Supplemental Medicaid Funds In FY2012 As A Result Of The Deal, And Stands To Receive $3.6 Billion More By 2015. “In fiscal year 2012 alone, the federal government sent about $700 million in supplemental funds to Louisiana’s Medicaid program, with another $3.6 billion to be spent in fiscal years 2013-2015. In FY13, the law changed the feds’ share of Louisiana Medicaid spending from 61 percent to 72 percent: a billion-dollar adjustment for the Bayou State.” (Avik S. A. Roy, “The New Louisiana Purchase: ObamaCare’s $4.3 Billion Boondoggle,” The Atlantic, 3/6/12)
    “The Haste And Carelessness” Of The Louisiana Purchase Is “Endemic Of The Legislation, More Broadly.” “It would be easy to dismiss the Louisiana Lagniappe as a trivial issue: after all, $4.3 billion in a trillion-dollar health-care law is a rounding error. But the haste and carelessness with which Sen. Landrieu’s provision was drafted is endemic of the legislation, more broadly.” (Avik S. A. Roy, “The New Louisiana Purchase: ObamaCare’s $4.3 Billion Boondoggle,” The Atlantic, 3/6/12)
