This blog is going dormant until further notice because – it dawns on me – there are enough smarter, better more astute voices out there re-posting snapshots of our demise. There is enough bad news to go around, no need for another echo in this deafening chamber. If things change – inside or out – I’ll be back. I will leave this blog up and ask that you avail yourselves of the great information sources in my blogroll.
With my new found time I will be reading, planting a garden, reloading ammunition, camping with the kids, doing some situps and … making some money while we still can.
Work for the best, plan for the worst.
The Grey Enigma
While gun owners have been fixated on threats to ban “assault weapons” and virtually every other sort of semi-automatic rifle and pistol, Barack Obama and Regime gun confiscationists have quietly advanced a far more insidious assault on 2nd Amendment rights.
In short, “…unknown sources have seen fit to take it upon themselves to share confidential medical records with NY State Officials without authorization, a massive HIPPA violation.” Lists of users of prescribed medications have been illegally supplied to NY officials, where they are compared with lists of New York’s holders of Pistol Owner ID Cards. Anyone on the left still want to suggest that national firearm registration by Big Brother would not really represent a danger to 2nd Amendment rights? Read more…
- Karl Denninger: FedRes Money Printing Games Out of Gas!
by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
Financial analyst Karl Denninger has never bought the so-called “recovery” story. Just the opposite is happening right now. He says, “When you look at these indices in the context of the last three or four months, what you see is a deteriorating picture . . . deteriorating employment, deteriorating final demand, deteriorating basically everything.” So, will the Fed print even more money?
Not that we are surprised, but now there are multiple copies of Barack Hussein Obama’s “real” birth certificate that are surfacing and they are clearly indicating fraud. In a rare move, the Alabama Democrat Party has submitted an amicus brief in the McInnish Goode v Chapman Appeal case. The reason being is most likely because the Alabama Supreme Court…

'Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday signed legislation aimed at taking handguns and assault rifles away from 20,000 Californians who acquired them legally but have since been disqualified from ownership because of a criminal conviction or serious mental illness.
The measure, the first of several gun-related bills to reach the governor, allocates $24 million in surplus funds to hire dozens of additional special agents to tackle a backlog of 40,000 weapons in the hands of people not allowed to possess firearms.
As stated by Federal Prosecutors, two men from Kazakhstan and a man from Cambridge, Ma., have been arrested and charged in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings. Azamat Tazhayakov age 19, and Dias Kadyrbayev age 19, both New Bedford, Ma., residents, have been Charged with, Conspiracy to Obstruct Justice, in connection with plotting the disposal of a laptop computer, and backpack containing fireworks, that allegedly belonged to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, age 19, better known as Suspect #2, in the Boston Matathon bombing.
“… The US consumes roughly 19 million barrels a day. The Bakken and Eagle Ford shale formations produce about a million barrels a day combined now, and guaranteed to get a whole lot lower within the next five years. Today’s near-peak production is based on furious drilling and fracking of extremely expensive wells — known as “the Red Queen syndrome” because they are running as fast as they can to keep production up. Meanwhile, the depletion curve on shale oil is a reverse ‘hockey stick’ …

'New York City police officials intend to expand the already extensive use of surveillance cameras throughout town. The plan, unveiled Thursday, comes as part of a drive for increased security around the US following the Boston Marathon attack.

Head of DHS Gets Smacked Down By Judge After Saying They Choose Which Laws To Enforce // Mr. Conservative
Under the Constitution’s separation of powers, the Executive is charged with enforcing the laws that Congress enacts. In Obama’s America, the executive office has aggregated to itself a previously unknown power: the power to pick and choose which laws to enforce and which laws to ignore. This unusual twist on the executive’s responsibilities started when Barack Obama, dissatisfied with Congress’s refusal to pass the DREAM Act’s promise to give permanent residency to millions of young illegal aliens, simply imposed his own DREAM Act by refusing to enforce this country’s deportation laws…via Mr. Conservative.

In Connecticut, the exodus has already begun. The first gunmaker to pack up and leave is Bristol-based PTR Industries, which announced earlier this month via Facebook that it would be taking its 40 jobs and $50,000 weekly payroll to another state.
“With a heavy heart but a clear mind, we have been forced to decide that our business can no longer survive in Connecticut – the former Constitution state,” PTR said in a statement earlier this month.
Greed is rampant in our corporatocracy driven society. It is everywhere and these mega corps will do ANYTHING to make a fake monopoly buck.. It is imperative that you understand who these people are and what their Agenda 21 plans are. Watch this video and understand the rabbit hole goes much deeper then you could imagine. Grow your own healthy food, start a community garden, purchase fresh healthy produce, milk, and other natural ingredients from local producers.
Boston Marathon bombing aftermath has some very serious loose ends in need of being squared away. Suspect #1, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, had been surveilled by both the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Central Intelligence Agency, reportedly for some eighteen months. At what point is it determined whether a person should remain on a watchlist or is this like Nazi Germany's enemy watchlist, where once on it, an individual without any evidence or proof at all of being a person worthy to maintain on the list, remains branded by the government?
HISTORY Not Now Taught in Public Schools - The Cover-Up of the Truth
This is a great beginning in understanding how we've always been "off the tracks".
I've highlighted most of the years used in this article to better visualize where one is and have resort back to, at any given time. I've attempted to "clean up" some of the punctuation/spacing/capitalization problems that one experiences, when comparing the below with the pdf original.
First of all, I must admit that I am one of those “Conspiracy Nuts” who loves to read meaning into the back of the US $1 bill like I’m trying to solve a centuries old puzzle. The “All Seeing Eye”, the pyramid, “One World Government”, Masonic symbols, the implications of the Latin words, even the words “In God We Trust” added in 1955…all of it…I’m a big fan of secret meaning. Just Google “US Dollar Hidden Meaning” and you will find almost EVERY INTERPRETATION you can imagine. Since I don’t know which is true…I tend to believe ALL OF THEM. More fun that way. If you think this is all hogwash and there is no meaning to the back of the $1 bill…”Duh, it’s just a nice picture”…then this article is not for you.
So, of course, I was more than excited when the new $100 bill was FINALLY announced… via The Road to Roota Letters
Why did Saudi national questioned in Boston jihad bombings visit White House? Why did Michelle Obama visit him in the hospital?
I had caught the story that Michelle Obama had made this visit earlier but not from a reliable source, or so I thought. This story is really going to get rich before it is over. Add this one: Michelle Obama…
Five U.S. gun control groups have received almost $7 million combined from liberal billionaire George Soros, including the most prominent one, the Brady Campaign. The Soros contributions to these five groups total an astounding $6,727,966 between 2000 and 2011. The American Bar Association, a liberal group of lawyers, received $4,093,946 from Soros. According to their site, “the ABA believes that lawyers share a special responsibility to help create a just and secure society in which firearms are well-regulated.” President Laurel Bellows urged for more than just background checks
" Saudi national Abdul Rahman Ali al-Harbi, who was briefly held as a “person of interest” in the Boston bombings and then downgraded in less than 24 hours to a witness, visited the White House on numerous occasions since 2009, The Rightscoop reports today.
The startling allegation follows an earlier report indicating that al-Harbi was visited in the hospital by First Lady Michelle Obama after he allegedly sustained injuries from one of the explosives placed at the Boston Marathon.
I always thought they were training the cops to violate people's rights, when I saw the show on TV in the early '90's called, "Cops."
Gone are the days of "Andy Griffith."

'Politics as usual' cannot save nation from disaster
April 21, 2013 Joseph Farah
Have you ever had the feeling the nation is on the brink of utter disaster?
Has that feeling ever been stronger than it is right now?
-It turns out that after spending hundreds of billions on foreign wars and nearly an equal amount on a new bureaucracy called the Department of Homeland Security, Americans are just as vulnerable to Islamic terrorist attacks as they were on 9/11.
Because, you know... Tinley Park resembles Jihadi Hadji land.
Real world training in shooting up cities and citizens... in America.
And people wonder why it has become the norm for local, state, and federal copdom to have no qualms about barging into your homes at gun point and ordering you out of your own home. No! Wait! The sheeple do not wonder.
UPDATED 4/24/13: Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi: Boston bombing ‘person of interest’ has 6 Saudi ‘terrorists’ in family, 5 more are in Gitmo. Visited by Michelle Obama prior to deportation & after Boston bombing | Global Dispatch
UPDATED 5AM EST Apr 24, 2013:
Confirmation that Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi, the Saudi national and initial “person of interest,” is indeed being deported this week now is spreading across the Internet. More details are emerging this weekend as Arabic sources and Saudi papers themselves are confirming “rumors” swirling in the US. (more at bottom)
Moreover, the Saudi papers are detailing the visit by the Obamas, especially Michelle to the hospital and this man. The “rumors” of the President meeting with Saudi officials in the hospital just prior to his “approved deportation” is a bragging right in their press.
More notable is the assertions that Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi is free an clear of terrorist ties, when in fact over 10 names from his clan are already linked to Al-Qaeda.
Many from Al-Harbi’s clan are entrenched in terrorism and are members of Al-Qaeda as identified by the Islamic governments.
Out of a list of 85 terrorists listed by the Saudi government shows several of Al-Harbi clan to have been active fighters in Al-Qaeda:
- #15 Badr Saud Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
- #73 Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
- #26 Khalid Salim Uwaid Al-Lahibi Al-Harbi
- #29 Raed Abdullah Salem Al-Thahiri Al-Harbi
- #43 Abdullah Abdul Rahman Muhammad Al-Harbi (leader)
- #60 Fayez Ghuneim Humeid Al-Hijri Al-Harbi [Source]
Then you have Al-Harbi clan members in Gitmo:
Several readers had e-mailed me about the story of a 14-year-old who was apparently told that he couldn’t wear an NRA T-shirt (which depicted a rifle), and then arrested when the dispute escalated. Yesterday, he was apparently back in school (see ABC News and Washington Times) wearing the shirt, and many classmates are wearing the shirt, too. From the Washington Times account:
Jared Marcum, 14, was joined by about 100 other students across Logan County who wore shirts with a similar gun rights theme in a show of support for free speech.
Ben White, the Charleston lawyer representing the Logan eighth-grader, said the Sons of the Second Amendment, a gun rights group, purchased and distributed the shirts…. Read more…
What our enemy the State learned was that Americans will meekly do whatever the "authorities" tell them to do.

Counter-terrorism experts have renewed calls to tighten security on America’s mass transit lines following two would-be terrorists’ foiled plot to blow up a Toronto passenger train.
The alleged plan to attack Canada’s transit system has shed light on the vulnerabilities that still exist in America’s commuter system and the challenges involved in keeping it safe for travelers.
“The millions of Americans who take public transportation need to be assured that everything possible is being done to ensure their security and safety,” American Public Transportation Association President and CEO Michael Melaniphy told FoxNews.com on Monday, adding that federal funding should be increased.
… “This country has to change its outlook on day-to-day life,” he said. “We can’t let out guard down.”
Area mental health professionals say they’re concerned about an aspect of the state’s new gun law requiring them to report potentially dangerous patients.
The New York State SAFE Act includes a section designed to “…remove firearms from those who seek to do harm to themselves or others.” The law requires reporting by doctors, psychologists, licensed clinical social workers and registered nurses to advise authorities.
Since that provision of the law took effect March 16, officials have received at least 30 reports of people whose gun licenses should be reviewed, state police say. Read more…
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- An NYU student was arrested Monday for allegedly building realistic looking air rifles in his dorm room.
As CBS 2’s Derricke Dennis reported, Bernard Goal, 20, was picked after crews noticed what looked like rifles on his bed at the 80 Lafayette St. dorm. They then alerted campus security.
Public safety officers found a total of six airsoft weapons in Goal's dorm room minutes later.
- If they are not weapons, can they be a f'g "arsenal"?
- Why were the janitors snooping in the kids room, were looking for his underwear?
- Does one have no right to privacy at NYU?
- Where are the in house anti-authority liberal attack squads to protest this abrogation of individual rights?
- Why is blood squirting out of my eyeballs now that I have read this story?
- Where do I begin to add commentary to this... only in NYC would this even seem possible.
Credibility shredded from Boston to Benghazi.
Jihad has blown up The Liberal Utopia. The visionary liberal land of political and social perfection.
President Obama is not happy — and he isn’t alone.
You know the place.
• The Liberal Utopia is a land where gun background checks prevent mass murder.
• The Liberal Utopia is a land where Islamic fundamentalists have changed their perception of America because the President travels to Muslim nations to give lovely speeches, believes that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and elsewhere is a wonderful sign of an Arab Spring, and refuses to use the word “terrorist” whether his administration is investigating Ft. Hood, Boston, or Benghazi.
• The Liberal Utopia is a land where a 2009 presidential video proclaiming a “new beginning” in American relations with Iran will halt the effort to build a nuclear bomb.
• The Liberal Utopia is a land where the good intentions of Social Security will never bankrupt the Social Security Trust Fund.
• The Liberal Utopia is a land where the good intentions of Medicare could not possibility result in trillions of unfunded liability.
• The Liberal Utopia is a land where the War on Poverty was supposed to end poverty — and instead winds up sending violent crime skyrocketing, and, in the words of Thomas Sowell, setting up the American black family for rapid disintegration in the liberal welfare state “that subsidized unwed pregnancy and changed welfare from an emergency rescue to a way of life.”
One could go on …and on and on….spotting those will-o-the-wisp glimpses of The Liberal Utopia (Obamacare here, the Obama stimulus over there, the promise to close Guantanamo way back there) with example after example of this miserably failed attempt to find or create a Liberal Utopia.
Or what our friend Mark Levin deftly calls Ameritopia…

15th April 2013 – The Supreme Court on Monday said it would not weigh in on a major Second Amendment question that has divided the lower courts: May states bar or strictly limit the carrying of guns in public for self-defense? The justices turned down a case concerning a New York State law that requires people seeking permits to carry guns in public to demonstrate that they have a special need for self-protection. In urging the justices to hear the case, the National Rifle Association called the law “a de facto ban on carrying a handgun outside the home.”

With this outrage, the federal courts stand revealed as utterly corrupt, willful accomplices in the drive to strip America of that which made it unique: governance based on the natural rights of man. It’s well to remember why the states instituted a central government—to protect and defend the Constitution, just as their oath of office demands. Its one and only function was to guarantee transactions between peoples, institutions, the states and foreign countries were in accordance with the founding law of the land. Those powers granted to it were for this purpose and this purpose only. Where disputes arose in to how to apply the Constitution in specific cases, the Supreme Court was charged with discovering the way of highest fidelity. Over time the court abandoned this duty and regarded the Constitution as an inconvenient, and at times embarrassing, anachronism. Where clever gaming of its black-letter provisions didn’t work, the court referred to its own decisions instead, and where that didn’t work, it was ignored, at most begrudgingly cited as a footnote for antiquarians. This is how it’s done today, mainly, with a wink and a nod and a Georgetown cocktail party afterward. Read more…

Just as I warned SurvivalBlog readers, it appears that the BHO Administration is taking executive action on firearms importation. Take a few minutes to read this: After Senate setback, Obama quietly moving forward with gun regulation. Here is the key portion of the article:
"The Importation of Defense Articles and Defense Services -- U.S. Munitions Import List references executive orders, amends ATF regulations and clarifies Attorney General authority “to designate defense articles and defense services as part of the statutory USML for purposes of permanent import controls,” among other clauses specified in heavy legalese requiring commensurate analysis to identify just what the administration’s intentions are.
King Obama ranted that the NRA and others were lying about the Manchin-Toomey Amendment allowing the registration of guns and owners. Obama is the one lying. Here's what the proposed amendment said, extracted verbatim:

SACRAMENTO (AP) — State lawmakers have sent Gov. Jerry Brown a bill that would provide more money for a state program that confiscates guns from felons, those deemed mentally unstable and others who are prohibited from owning them.
The $24 million would be used over the next three years to hire more state Department of Justice agents. The money is designed to erase a backlog in the program.
