The Utopian fanatics are again wrong.

“Gun-related homicides and crime are “strikingly” down from 20 years ago, despite the American public’s belief that firearm crime is on the upswing, a new study said Wednesday.

Looking back 50 years, a Pew Research Center study found U.S. gun homicides rose in the 1960s, gained in the 1970s, peaked in the 1980s and the early 1990s, and then plunged and leveled out the past 20 years.

“Despite national attention to the issue of firearm violence, most Americans are unaware that gun crime is lower today than it was two decades ago,” the researchers say.

A Pew survey of Americans in March found 56% believed gun-related crime is higher than 20 years ago and only 12% said its lower. The survey said 26% believed it stayed the same and 6% didn’t know.”

 

“The new study found U.S. firearm homicides peaked in 1993 at 7.0 deaths per 100,000 people. But by 2010, the rate was 49% lower, and firearm-related violence — assaults, robberies, sex crimes — was 75% lower in 2011 than in 1993, the study found.

Those drops parallel an overall decline in violent non-fatal crime, with or without a gun, the study said.

In fact, gun-related homicide rates in the late 2000s were “equal to those not seen since the early 1960s,” the study found.”

 

The notion of gun control is based on a complete myth. Yet the assault on our 2nd amendment protections continues apace. We have a significant increase in population, a significant increase in firearms, yet gun crime is drastically less now than in the last 20 years. Will any amount of evidence dissuade the dogmatic fidelity to the gun violence myth?

I doubt it. The scapegoat of gun violence is a ruse. Used to emotionally play on the sympathies of decent people, and to manipulate those same decent people in an attempt to control their behavior.

The constitution is our rule of law. The bill of rights are protections we; the people, have FROM an oppressive tyranny. Be it a God,  a Government ,  a criminal or a combination of all three. Let us not surrender to a myth.

 

 

The governor of Colorado signed a mostly toothless firearms limitation bill into law yesterday. Toothless in the respect that it will not deter one crime or deter one criminal. Statics show that it wont. Colorado law enforcement officials have gone on record state wide to say they will not enforce the vague letter and superficial spirit of the law. What this law will do, and the tragedy of such laws, is it will force law abiding citizens to surrender some of their liberty or become petty lawbreakers. Those who are the intended targets of the law are lawless anyhow, so it’s safe to assume they will ignore it. Those citizens complying with the law will be at a tactical disadvantage in the unlikely event of an armed confrontation. It also will cause economic damage to Colorado. One example is this law is forcing magazine-maker Magpul Industries to desert its plant about 30 miles from Denver. They now make an illegal product. Goodbye to those jobs and that tax base and the thousands of unintended consequences attached to it.

Noted plagiarist, political gaff machine and court jester Joe Biden intervened to twist some arms in the Colorado state house in order to pass this bill. Why would the federal government take an interest in the affairs of a Colorado? We know why. The remorseless advance of the statist agenda is served by these restrictions. The question I ask is why do we tolerate such usurpation of our Constitution? In the process of denying the 2nd amendment rights to citizens in Colorado, the Whitehouse also violated the 9th and 10th amendments to our constitution. 3of the big 10! 30 % of our inalienable rights were violated in just this one instance!

The constitution and its amendments are protections FOR the citizen FROM the Tyranny of an overbearing federal government. The violation of our civil rights perpetrated in this case is outrageous. Once upon a time in the west, a man’s word was his bond and the law of the west was applied down the barrel of a gun. Today in the west, the de rigueur is feel good reactions doing more harm than good: masquerading as solutions. The result is violence to our constitution, violence to the law abiding citizen  with eroding libertys and adding a tactical advantage to psychopath poachers who exploit the shortsighted and weak.

007The soultion is staring us in the face, yet we cant see it

Matt Ridley, the rational optimist http://www.rationaloptimist.com/ concludes we can have an improving environment and improved living standards. The slight increase in Co2 (.0002 %) in the atmosphere can be linked to More plant growth, more agricultural production, more food and unparalleled abundance. We now use 1/3 less land for farming yet produce considerably more. New England used to be 70% farmland, now it’s 70% woodland. Vietnam, The United Kingdom and other countries are re-foresting. The amazon rainforest and even places in Africa are enjoying a net greening.
Add to that the abundance of carbon based energy sources( he calls it fossil fuels but I maintain that as a misnomer and refuse to use the term) have made the lives of planet earth dramatically better while easing the exploitation of animals for fuel and clothing,etc and his case is compelling.
Conventional wisdom is that the environment is a zero sum game, clearly there is evidence to the contrary.

The nation’s big health insurers say they expect premiums — or the cost for insurance coverage — to rise from 20 to 100 percent for millions of people due to changes that will occur when key provisions of the Affordable Care Act roll out in January 2014.

Mark Bertolini, CEO of Aetna Inc., one of the nation’s largest insurers, calls the price hikes “premium rate shock.”

“We’ve done all the math, we’ve shared it with all the regulators, we’ve shared it with all the people in Washington that need to see it, and I think it’s a big concern,” Bertolini said during the company’s annual meeting with investors in December.

This is by design, as the Fabian-Socialist have admitted the idea is to whittle it down to so-called single payer. No, Not when selling obamacare to the gullible public, but in private sessions where they plot the undermining of individual freedom and plan profligate spending. In case it’s unclear who this “single payer” is, it’s you and me. The taxpayers.

 

The Obama administration notified Congress on Friday that it would provide Egypt’s new government an emergency cash infusion of $450 million U.S. Taxpayer dollars. Why? who knows? He promised egypt a billion in aid. This comes only 2 weeks after savage islamist stormed our embassy in Cairo, occupied it by burning old glory and hoisting the al-Qaeda flag , ALL ON  9-11. The new government in egypt is dominated by the muslin brotherhood. The same muslim brotherhood who has vowed to impose sharia law on the world , is now starting by collecting the jizya tax from the  obama administration after it has conquered the U.S.  embassy. This is an outrage.

Yesterday, a CNN /MSNBC “reporter” was arrested in the NYC subway for vandalizing this anti-jihadist ad-

The CNN/MSNBC “reporter” who vandalized these ads in the NYC subway is a good example of the political agenda of both CNN and MSNBC.  To the left, it’s considered racist to identify evil (jihad) and ask decent people to condemn it. To the left, propaganda trumps facts and reality is but a narrative, constructed to dupe the gullible and advance the leftist/marxist/fascist agenda.  “Anyone who speaks about jihad and Shariah is attacked, defamed, destroyed,”

Look carefully at the sign. It does NOT mention islam or muslims.It clearly states  who the savages are. It equates jihad with savagery. And to deny jihad is not savagery is to deny reality.

A cruel fact is that not all muslims are jihadist. But all jihadist are muslims. It is way past time the civilized muslims condemn jihad and reject the jihad. Until the jihadist are defeated, they will be no freedom or peace for any of us. But here we have another western “reporter” being a useful idiot to the marxist/fascist/leftist agenda. The media sets the agenda, and the media is the message. It happens every day.

It happens all too often. Obama says one thing while the truth is totally different. There are hundreds of documented lies told by Obama. It is as though dupes and sycophants crave the deceit. It is a disgusting indication also that the leftist media cover and promote the deceit and usurption of american citizens.

A week after it was known, the Washington Post  now reports “The U.S. ambassador and three other Americans killed last week in Libya died “in
the course of a terrorist attack,” a senior U.S. intelligence official told lawmakers Wednesday. http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/benghazi-attack-called-terrorist/2012/09/19/90e74b52-0290-11e2-9b24-ff730c7f6312_story.html

But just the night before, obama is on letterman denying it and trying to blame the terrorist attacks on some retarded cheap YouTube video-

The real story of the attacks coinciding with 9-11 is not mentioned nor is the horrible rape and torture of our ambassador. Obama dont mention it and his lapdog press stenographers dont mention it. The media sycophants dont ask why our embassies were left vulnerable , given the fact the united states government had ample intelligence to conclude there was an iminite danger to American interest and citizens in the region. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444165804578008411144721162.html?mod=googlenews_wsj

The first tuesday in november cant come fast enough !

Update:

Obama blames Bush for the Fast and Furious gun walking program… Another blatant LIE.

http://freebeacon.com/carney-protests-not-directed-at-the-united-states/

Carney: Protests not directed at the United States.

As we have said on 9-11-12, these are coordinated Terrorist attacks.

Good Grief !! The spin doctors want to set the narrative of some obscure you tube video is to blame for this outbreak of islam’s true identity. The facts are otherwise. The administration and their ministers of propaganda are hoping we are gullible and credulous. Don’t be fooled. These are terrorist attacks.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed the savages who dragged the American ambassadors’  body through the streets of Benghazi after he was murdered were “taking him to the hospital”. That is ridiculous and stupid. She continues to ignore islamofacism and the takeover of North Africa by the muslim brotherhood.

It is now apparent that the attack was coordinated and planned to coincide with the 9-11 terrorist attacks.It is also apparent Clinton is a blatant liar or a pitiful dupe. Either way, she is a disgrace and unfit to serve as secretary of state. We desreve better.

If our government cant even admit the Islamist savages who murdered and desecrated the dead bodies of american citizens are guilty of that obvious terrorist act, how can we believe a word they say? Or trust them with our family’s security ?

The compliant and sycophantic press are doing backflips trying to cover for the obama administrations’ incompetence. The foolish notions of “arab spring” and other leftist fantisies are dangerous and intended to deceive. It is truly despicable to witness this criminal neglect and willful blindness by our government  and its propaganda machine in the media as this sad history repeats itself.

Obama is the 2nd Carter term. Economic misery at home, high unemployment  and now complete with embassy attacks and surrendering to the islamofacist who attacked the embassy. And as carter lost Iran as an ally, Obama has lost Libia AND Egypt.

Obama also assured The islamofacist leader of Egypt (Morsi) that the 1.2 BILLION in U.S. Taxpayer “aid” will keep flowing, all the while our embassy in Cairo is overrun with  islamofacist . A blatant act of war. They removed the people and took Old Glory down and replaced it with an islamofacist flag. So now we  tolerate obama funding America’s enemies with american taxpayer dollars. Today  The attacks on our embassy in Cairo continue.

UPDATE: The U.S. Embassy in Yemen is now under seize by islamofacist.

What will obama do about this ?      Nothing .     He is busy playing golf and campaigning and  blaming others for his failures.

The United States government is using social media and new face recognition software to conduct surveillance on the citizens.  http://rt.com/usa/news/fbi-recognition-system-ngi-640/

“FBI has officially started rolling out a state-of-the-art face recognition project that will assist in their effort to accumulate and archive information about each and every American at a cost of a billion dollars”

” Facial recognition “is more accurate with a Google or a Facebook, because they will have anywhere from a half-dozen to a dozen pictures of an individual, whereas I imagine the FBI has one or two mug shots,” he says. When these files are then fed to law enforcement agencies on local, federal and international levels, intelligence databases that include everything from close-ups of eyeballs and irises to online interests could be shared among offices.”

” the FBI said that the technology could be used for “Identifying subjects in public datasets,” as well as “conducting automated surveillance at lookout locations” and “tracking subject movements,” meaning NGI is more than just a database of mug shots mixed up with fingerprints — the FBI has admitted that  their intent with the technology surpasses just searching for criminals but includes spectacular surveillance capabilities. Together, it’s a system unheard of outside of science fiction”.

Additional to  the 4th amendment concerns is the very real (inevitable) possibility of abuse for political purposes. The totalitarian aspect of the current administrations disregard for constitutional restraints can not be overstated. Given this surveillance power, it’s chilling to consider the skullduggery and violations of privacy we are in for.  We know that drones already patrol the United States for various reasons, and we can expect this NGI technology to be onboard as well.

Little by little,  as we surrender our sovereignty to the state, The remorselessly expanding state consumes evermore of our and our children’s birthright of Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness by imposing crushing deficits & generational theft and  now systems that monitor our every move.

This is Orwellian, and we’re all Winston Smith.

As O’Brian tells Smith in the Book 1984 ,”If you want a vision of the future, Winston, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever”
