Am I a Threat?
American Thinker, by A Marine Officer

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/21/2012 8:16:37 AM

I am a Commissioned Officer currently serving on Active Duty in the United States Marine Corps. I have deployed five times in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. I have been granted a Top Secret security clearance three times during my career after thorough background investigations (and polygraph tests) by various Federal agencies. I have never in my life been treated for any type of psychological disorder. I am also the owner of several firearms; I own two "assault" rifles, a shotgun, and three handguns.

Of course you are a threat. Not a threat to your neighbors, me, my grandchildren, but a threat to an oppressive government. You are the very threat our founders knew was essential for the survival of our constitutional republic. Anyone who considers you a threat based on what you have shared, has something in mind other than our republic in it´s intended form as designed and defined in our founding documents.

The nation is now facing the tyranny of a new "King George" in the form of Barack Obama and his army of looters, moochers,the Democrat Party and the Media. The odds are not good. It took 50 years to get to the mess the nation is now in and it will take another 50 to recover. I won´t be around to see it. Thank you for your service, sir, from another vet and assumed threat to the current government; S/SGT USAF-SS, 1963-1967.

FTA: "New and stricter gun control legislation.... would be like punishing all Muslims just because a small few choose to commit acts of terror."

To battle the progressives where they live, this is a meme that can have several positive political permutations. For example, tie accepting the ban on "assault rifles" to active Muslim profiling at airports and a ban on terrorist breeding grounds known as mosques. The progressive MO is to say something over and over long enough that the low information crowd begins to accept it as if it were an original thought.

Even non political school kids reject the tyranny of he government when they dump the school lunches forced on them by a liberal knows best government.Bloomberg thinks getting rid of salt,big sodas and trans fats are the big answer to obesity when I bet NY is still one of the most obese cities in the country.

I´m not sure the psychiatric community is up to this task either. They´re mostly trained in liberal perspective schools ripe with group think and the culture of throwing a pill at a problem.

But anyway,this marine speaks for millions of people with simple common sense.

Armed law-abiding Americans are a threat.

They´re a threat to tyranny.

They´re a threat to criminals.

They´re a threat to those who seek to do this nation harm.

So far no one thinks it odd that the firearms that are among the least likely to be used in a homicide are those most villified by those on the Left and those who haven´t any idea about how a firearm is operates or employed?

The Founders of this nation had experienced the attempted confiscation of the most modern firearms of their time, and made sure that when such threats to liberty would inevitably come to the levers of power with the belief that the individual exists for the well-being of the state that the individual would have the means to serve as a check and balance to counter such a threat.

Tyrants, dictators and both sides of the socialist coin - national socialists and communists - have always feared an armed citizenry, and the reason for that is such philosophies do not respect the rights of free men, but instead rely on compulsion at every turn - and the lives of 100 million killed last century are stark evidence of this fact.

Compulsion, control, and dominance over the spirit and beliefs of the individual is made far tougher when those individuals have the means to resist.

The Beat Goes On:
Opposing Obama Is Racist

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism. For the first time in U.S. history, are Americans required to submit to their president's agenda or suffer the mainstream media and Democratic party branding an R on

Justice Stevens thinks he knows

American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

Two of the biggest and best-connected lobbyists in Washington, DC are divorcing each other, and in the process they are placing on the public record the amazing wealth that can be generated by helping rent-seeking powerful interests shape the laws and regulations that separate Americans into winners and losers as the state confiscates a fifth of our GDP and regulates much of the rest. Matthew Continetti chronicles the divorce of Tony and Heather Podesta in the Free Beacon, and it is arresting reading. If the name Podesta rings a bell, that is because Tony’s kid brother John is a former White

One of the guidelines of liberal propaganda is that if you are going to lie, lie big. Global warming, Obamacare, Romney’s a heartless guy. It might be time to add to the list the famous Anthony Porter exoneration in Chicago in 1999. Not only is Porter likely guilty of the double murder he was initially charged with, an innocent man therefore sits in an east central Illinois prison serving a 37-year sentence. His probable framing was largely orchestrated by a since-discredited “journalism” professor and his students at Northwestern University, a cowed prosecutor’s office in Cook County, and a Chicago media that

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

America´s school children have had enough and they´re not going to take it anymore.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
