In response to the Tucson rampage, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) says he will introduce legislation making it illegal to carry a firearm within 1,000 feet of certain government officials, including members of Congress.
Senile New York Congresswoman Louise Slaughter exemplifies her disrespect for the First Amendment:
Frankly what I would like to see if we can all get together on both sides of the isle. Democrats and Republicans to and really talk about what we can do to cool down the country. Part of it has to be what they are hearing over the airwaves
When will the elite and privileged class of criminal career politicians face the reality that the reason for national outrage stems from the determined policies and organizational systems that the government enacts to destroy the essence of America?
After 9/11, the federal government created a vast national security state the likes of which we’ve never seen in American history. Today, the Department of Homeland Security employs nearly a quarter million federal workers and is the largest government bureaucracy after the Pentagon and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Post-9/11, so-called security measures were hastily enacted by Congress or new powers assumed by the president that gave the federal government unprecedented abilities to keep tabs on citizens. Still, this monstrous federal bureaucracy was not able to prevent a man from boarding an airplane and attempting to detonate an “underwear bomb” on December 25, 2009. It was private citizens who stopped this would-be terrorist.

Twenty-four year old Joe Zamudio quietly stood at the Safeway counter waiting to buy a pack of cigarettes as shots rang out in Tucson Arizona Saturday. As most followed their natural instinct to run to safety, Zamudio put his hand on his gun and ran towards the chaos. Zamudio was not an off-duty police officer nor did he possess military training, he was merely an Arizona resident who was legally carrying a concealed weapon who believed he could stop the carnage.
The response of Mr. Zamudio is that of a responsible citizen.
Contrast this behavior with the national police enforcement bureau. Better, know as the FBI. Paul Joseph Watson writes in Prison Planet.
An Ozark man who ran a blog last year critical of Republican Congressman Billy Long was shocked to see an FBI agent turn up on his doorstep asking questions. The agent was accompanied by Green County Sheriff Jim Arnott, who had stepped outside of his jurisdiction to become involved in this act of political repression directed against Clay Bowler, a resident of Christian County.
The FBI agent wanted to know if Bowler was a threat to Long because he had used an Internet blog to highlight claims of cronyism and corruption involving the Congressman before the southwest Missouri election in November, in which Long defeated Democrat Scott Eckersley to replace outgoing Rep. Roy Blunt.
The most heated confrontation Bowler had with Long was when he asked him a question about political donations Long had made. The video clip of the incident shows Bowler calmly asking Long a question as the Congressman walks away. He ran a website called “Long is wrong” in an attempt to prevent Long from being elected last year. The website has since been discontinued and Bowler hasn’t had any contact with Long since September.
This is the fate that ordinary voters will endure when opposing entrenched politicians. What is really going on with this new push to silence government opposition? Again, another liberal oriented, online source Raw Story provides the answer.
Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) has introduced a little-noticed bill that intends to once again renew controversial provisions of the Bush administration’s USA Patriot Act that are due to expire this year.
Genuine conservatives foremost are advocates of civil liberties. Attacks on publically elected officials are deplorable but are unavoidable, especially when the political system is in melt down mode. Real problems mostly ignored build frustration. Verbal criticism is not only protected speech but is a necessary duty of all citizens. Governments fabricate a crisis to provide a false justification for their next draconian assault on the rights of offended citizens.
A Neocon like Glenn Beck is pushing a nonviolence pledge. Three of the items are:
• I denounce anyone, from the Left, the Right or middle, who believes physical violence is the answer to whatever they feel is wrong with our country.
• I denounce those who wish to tear down our system and rebuild it in their own image, whatever that image may be.
• I denounce those from the Left, the Right or middle that sees violence as a viable alternative to our long established system of change made within the constraints of our constitutional Republic.
While the principle of nonviolence is a core element that is wholly compatible with a moral society, the strict application of Beck’s foolish diatribe would forbid the honorable underpinnings of the 1776 American Revolution. Political conflict is inevitable with any governmental order. Any measure adopted that furthers the despotism of the state is a far greater risk than the hazard of becoming a target of a mind controlled mad man. In the end who is the maddest of all lunatics, other than the architects of the police state.
Do you really think a serious investigation into the lone gunman theory would benefit the elites, when the dastardly deed served the purpose of further criminalizing those, who dissent or resist the oppression of the federal behemoth? How long will it be before a special agent of the FBI makes a visit to test your loyalty oath? The fascists are making another end run around your natural rights under the guise of the rule of law. When Free Speech is construed as a crime, the threat to federal officials will intensify even more. Then ask the Beck fifth column worshipers what did you do when the constitutional Republic died?
