The Battle for the Soul of America

My late mother used to tell me that I had a long fuse which led to a box of dynamite.

She was right.

Yesterday, I had had all I could stand of Joe Biden trying to push gun control and take away our 2nd Amendment Rights as Americans.

So, I replied to him on Twitter.

It did not make me feel any better, but it did trigger a realization or two.

This Cultural Jihad against our Traditional American Faith and Values, which the Democrats are waging on our country, can be traced all the way back to the years after World War II, when Marxists tried to infiltrate Hawaii, Hollywood, and our nation’s capital.

They were driven back but, like a coiled rattlesnake hiding in some brush waiting to strike, they bided their time, working behind the scenes in the Democratic Party.

When Lyndon Baines Johnson was installed as President after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Democratic Party began accelerating its slow but steady movement to the Far Left of the Political Spectrum.

They began their Cultural Jihad against the traditional faith and values of Americans by starting social programs which they claimed were necessary to raise people out of poverty.

In reality, these programs replaced the Traditional Family Unit with a “benevolent” and massive central government which working Americans now know of unaffectionately as “Uncle Sugar”.

Over the decades, these types of programs and this ongoing mission to “radically change” our country by the Far Left, has resulted in the propagandizing of our school system and the acceptance and glorification of behaviors which, when I was in college in the late 1970s, were deemed as deviant, according to a College Sociology Course I took.

In the ensuing decades, all of the things which had made America great, especially Christianity and Patriotism, were deemed as narrow-minded, bigoted, and somehow, oppressive by Far Left Politicians and “Experts”.

Now, we are witnessing Joe Biden and the Far Left Democrats attempt to take our tools of personal and family defense away from us as we witness the America we love being mercilessly attacked and destroyed in front of our very eyes.

So, here we are living in a world that reminds us of Bizarro World in the Superman comic books we used to read as children before they became propaganda literature published by the Far Left.

Make no mistake, this is not about a battle between political parties anymore, this is a battle between Good and Evil.

This is a battle for the soul of America.

If you think that we are not in a battle for the soul of our country, then why do you think they are calling us “Christian Nationalists”?

Biden Attacks Second Amendment During Gun Control Speech to the Nation

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”- Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America

Last night, the dementia-riddled old fool in the White House, Joe Biden, gave a nonsensical speech in which he declared that the Second Amendment is not absolute.

Quite frankly, boys and girls, Biden is so full of crap that his eyes are brown.

Here is how our Founding Fathers would have responded to the Dummy From Delaware, Joe Biden…

[T]he said Constitution [should] be never construed . . . to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms. Samuel Adams, Signer of the Declaration, “Father of the American Revolution”

The right . . . of bearing arms . . . is declared to be inherent in the people. Fisher Ames, A Framer of the Second Amendment in the First Congress 

[T]he advantage of being armed [is an advantage which] the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation. . . . [I]n the several kingdoms of Europe . . . the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. James Madison, U.S. President, Signer of the Constitution, a Framer of the Second Amendment in the first congress

[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them. Richard Henry Lee, Signer of the Declaration, A Framer of the Second Amendment in the First Congress 

Democrats like Biden believe that the Constitution is a “fluid” document, subject to change to fit the political ideology of those who happens to be the majority party, presiding over the Executive and Legislative Branches of our Federal Government at the time.

That is where they are wrong…and they know it…but, they do not care, as evidenced by the bullying and didactic tone which Biden took during his teleprompter-delivered talking points last night.

The Constitution was written by brilliant men who foresaw the possibility of a minority of tyrants attempting to take over and change our Constitutional Republic into a tyrannical form of government, such as they left behind in Europe.

And, that, boys and girls, after hearing President Joe Biden threaten the Second Amendment, appears to be exactly what the Democrats want for the future of our Sovereign Nation and our children and grandchildren.

By proclaiming, like a monarch, that “no amendment is absolute”, Biden has warned us that changing the Second Amendment of OUR Constitution, a part of OUR Bill of Rights, is a very real possibility, if he can get the “Fools on the Hill”, otherwise known as Congress, to go along with it.

And, if that happens, what is to stop them from “radically changing” the First Amendment, as well?

And, God forbid, if all of that happens, our Constitutional Republic will no longer exist and America will be just another failed Democratic Socialist Third World Barrio, instead of “The Shining City Up On A Hill”.

It is time to “put on the whole Armor of God”, to pray, and to call our Representatives in Washington and tell them that We The People will not stand for this…and if they want to keep their jobs they had better start fighting against this “Russian Revolution II” and the unwanted revision of OUR Constitution.

Or they are going to be out of a job.

God protect us.

Trump Speaks to NRA About Uvalde Massacre

Yesterday, Former President Donald J Trump spoke at the annual National Rifle Association Convention being held in Houston, TX, just three days after a gunman killed 21 people, including 19 children, at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, just a four-hour drive from the NRA event.

This is what a President sounds like…

…as opposed to the current Resident in the White House.

”We need to drastically change our approach to mental health,” Trump told the crowd.

”There are always so many warning signs; almost all of these disfigured minds share the same profile. When people see something, whether on social media or in school, they need to say something.

”Teachers, parents, school officials and community members need to be recognizing and addressing these alarm bells promptly very, very aggressively and our school discipline systems, instead of making excuses and continually turning a blind eye, need to confront bad behavior head on and quickly and clearly we need to make it far easier to confine the violent and mentally deranged into mental institutions.”

Trump also called for common ground among lawmakers and slammed the ”familiar parade of cynical politicians seeking to exploit the tears of sobbing families to increase their own power and take away our constitutional rights.”

”Even more repulsive is their rush to shift blame away from the villains who commit acts of mass violence and to place that blame onto the shoulders of millions of peaceful law-abiding citizens who belong to organizations such as our wonderful NRA,” he said.

”When Joe Biden blamed the gun lobby, he was talking about Americans like you. And, along with countless other Democrats this week, he was shamefully suggesting that Republicans are somehow OK with letting school shootings happening. They’re not OK with it.

”This rhetoric is highly divisive and dangerous and, most importantly, it’s wrong and has no place in our politics.””(Courtesy NewsMax.com)

Today’s Democrats do not care about our Constitutional Rights, all they care about is absolute power.

That is why a man like Former President Trump is such a threat to them.

While they speak down to us, Trump speaks to us

While they speak in platitudes filled with theories and promises designed to perk up the ears of millennials and the Far Left, Trump gets straight to the point and speaks to average Americans like their next door neighbor would.

Yesterday, Trump said what average Americans are thinking.

Per usual, he was spot-on in his assessment of the Democrats’ attempt to use the slaughter of innocent children to try to take away our Constitutional Right to bear arms.

The Democrats are digging themselves a political hole that they are not going to be able to dig themselves out of…ever.

Americans are recognizing them for what they are.

And, November is not that far off.

Y’know, that thought makes me smile…a lot.

Schumer Kills Senate Bill That Would Make Our Schools Safer

The day after 19 innocent schoolchildren and 2 teachers were killed by a psychopath, Senator Chuck Schumer killed a bill which would have potentially provided stronger security in our nation’s schools.

The bill, named after Parkland, Florida, shooting victims Luke Hoyer and Alex Schachter, would require the Department of Homeland Security to establish a “Federal Clearinghouse on School Safety Best Practices” for use by state and local educational and law-enforcement agencies, institutions of higher education, health professionals, and the public. And it would require DHS to “collect clearinghouse data analytics, user feedback on the implementation of best practices and recommendations identified by the clearinghouse, and any evaluations conducted on these best practices and recommendations.” (Courtesy FoxNews.com)

Why did Schumer kill that bill?

He killed it because the Democrat Elite care more about taking away law-abiding Americans’ guns than they do about the safety of our children.

The Democrats’ never-ending quest for “Gun Control”, if successful, would only succeed in controlling law-abiding American Citizens, instead of punishing those who operate outside of our laws, such as the thugs who have turned Former President Obama’s “hometown” of Chicago and my hometown of Memphis into their own personal “Killing Fields” and the Marxist Anarchists who threaten to riot in our major cities SCOTUS rules the wrong way on the Abortion Case before them now.

The leader of the bloody Russian Revolution, Vladimir Lenin, once wrote that

“One man with a gun can control 100 without one.”

If the Democrats had their way, we would live in a country under the oppression of restrictive gun laws, which would be modeled after those in Europe. And, as past events have plainly shown, those restrictive gun laws have allowed Islamic Terrorists and other murderous nut jobs to kill innocent people unchallenged, because none of those innocent people were allowed to carry a weapon with which to defend themselves.

In fact, in some cases, even the police officers, who first arrived on the scene, were unarmed, and had to call for additional forces, thus giving the perpetrators more time to murder and maim the innocent.

One of our Founding Fathers, Dr. Benjamin Franklin, once wrote,

“Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.”

Like Dr. Franklin and the rest of those who have fought for our freedom, average Americans realize what Democrats do not.

The problem in stopping mass murders and other shooting deaths from happening is not that there are not enough gun laws. The problem is the gun laws on the books are not properly enforced.

The dissolution of the Family Unit, the revolving door state of our Municipal Justice Systems and the lack of recognition and treatment of the mentally ill and wannabe Terrorists and Marxist Anarchists, has a lot to do with the rise of these horrible massacres in America and the horrible violence which plagues cities like Chicago and Memphis.

What Liberals have never understood, in their continuous quest to take away the Second Amendment rights of average Americans, is that we will never surrender our Constitutional Right to defend ourselves and our families from enemies foreign and domestic.

What part of the words quote “shall not be infringed” do you Liberals not understand?

Passing more restrictive gun laws is not the answer.

Criminals are called “outlaws” for a reason.

They will find a way to get guns. They do now.

I agree with what Former President Trump said when Candidate Biden brought up Gun Control: “Hit the animals hard”.

This is a people problem. Not a gun problem.

After all, have you ever seen a gun pull its own trigger?

The Uvalde Elementary School Massacre is Not a Gun Problem…It’s an EVIL Problem.

“We live in an entertainment culture soaked in graphic, often sadistic, violence. Older folks find themselves stunned by what a desensitized youth finds routine, often amusing. It’s not just movies. Young men sit for hours pulling video-game triggers, mowing down human beings en masse without pain or consequence. And we profess shock when a small cadre of unstable, deeply deranged, dangerously isolated young men go out and enact the overlearned narrative.” – Dr. Charles Krauthammer

“A mass shooting at a Texas elementary school killed 14 children and one teacher Tuesday and the suspected gunman was killed, Gov. Greg Abbott said.

Abbott identified the suspect as Salvador Romas, a Uvalde resident, who is also dead and acted alone, authorities said. He had a handgun and possibly a rifle when he opened fire at Robb Elementary School, he said. Two police officers were shot and wounded but were expected to survive, Abbott said. 

“Texans across the state are grieving for the victims of this senseless crime and for the community of Uvalde. Cecilia and I mourn this horrific loss and we urge all Texans to come together to show our unwavering support to all who are suffering,” he said in a statement.” (Courtesy FoxNews.com)

The demonic shooter murdered his own grandmother before going to the school and slaghtering innocent children.

As I write this, the number of innocent lives lost has been updated to 18 children and adults.

The gunman was killed at the school by responding officers.

There are no excuses which can suffice in regards to the actions of this young man who so heinously and efficiently took the lives of those innocent children whom he struck down in cold blood.

In the case of this psychopath and others who have slaughtered the innocent, there were markers along the way which should have told those who were involved in their lives, both parents and friends, that there was something just not right with them.

You can call it profiling or you can call it a spirit of discernment, as the Bible describes it. Those who were around these individuals should have noticed something.

In my opinion, there is one solution:

We need Evil Control. What I mean is that we need parents to actually act like parents and be involved in their children’s lives. We need teachers and friends who care enough about individuals to say something to both them and to their families when something is just not right.

As someone who watched his parents deal with the mental illness of a family member, I’m not saying that it will be easy. It is a hard thing to face up to and to confront. But, it has to be done.

Those who are constantly calling for gun control seek to punish the entire nation for the actions of some by taking away our 2nd Amendment rights.

If those same people would stop for a moment and consider that guns are inanimate objects which cannot fire themselves and then focus on the true cause of the increase in violence in our nation, then perhaps we could actually start making some headway and provide the care and treatment to the individuals who need it in time to avoid the horrific event of a mass murder, such as happened in Uvalde, Texas.

I am not saying that this will get rid of all of the mentally ill people in our country who wish to murder others, but it seems to me that back in the day when parents actually raised their children, along with the rest of the neighborhood who raised us, we did not see this preponderance of violent acts which we are seeing today.

Also, one last thing. Getting back to raising our children and grandchildren in the “Faith of Our Fathers”, wouldn’t be such a bad idea, either.

Biden Uses Memorial Service for Fallen Police Officers to Push Police Reform and Gun Control, and to call January 6th an “Insurrection”

Biden FOP

Newsmax reports that

President Joe Biden on Saturday vowed to move forward with policing reform, telling a gathering honoring slain officers that their profession is called on to do too much.

“We expect you to be everything,” Biden said in a speech in front of the U.S. Capitol, mourning 491 law enforcement officers who died at work in 2019 and 2020. “We expect everything of you.

“And it’s beyond the capacity of anyone to meet the total expectations,” he said. “Being a cop today is one hell of a lot harder than it’s ever been.”

Biden’s own drafting of his remarks came as he learned of a shooting earlier on Saturday in Houston, which left one deputy dead and two injured. Biden expressed sorrow for the incident.

Biden has been a loyal ally to law enforcement, dating back to his days in the Senate when he crafted a 1994 crime bill with their help.

But his support for broad reforms following the 2020 murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis by an officer created some tension with police groups opposed to some of the reforms promoted by Democrats.

The National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), a major officers’ union which sponsored Saturday’s event, endorsed Biden’s Republican opponent Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

Efforts to reach a bipartisan police reform deal failed in September, marking a setback for the Democratic president, who campaigned on taking such action.

Biden on Saturday credited the FOP with “sincerely trying to reach an agreement.” He added, “We haven’t gotten there,” but “must” do so.

The president said he would work to get police departments the support and funding they need. Biden has already asked Congress for hundreds of millions of dollars to help law enforcement agencies with training and recruitment,

Biden has also said he will explore further executive actions he can take to help hold police officers accountable for breaking the law. Officers, he said, need more backup from mental-health and other professionals to deal with issues they face on the streets.

Biden credited law enforcement agencies with upholding U.S. democracy during the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.

And he repeated his proposed measures to reduce gun violence, including against officers, a set of efforts that has also largely stalled given insufficient support in Congress, which Democrats control by only narrow margins in both chambers.

Nearly 50 officers have been killed this year by gunfire, according to the FOP, more than in all of 2020.

The National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service began in 1982 as a small gathering of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement. It has since turned into a series of events, attracting thousands of officers and the families of victims to the nation’s capital each year.

The White House issued a proclamation ordering flags to be flown at half-staff at public buildings on Saturday.

Biden is trying to be everything to everybody…and failing miserably.

He is sucking up to the FOP while his fellow members of the Far Left Democratic Party want to defund them and replace them with Social Workers.

Where did this idea that the Liberals are pushing of “community policing” come from?

On July 2, 2008, Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama proclaimed in a speech:

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set,” he said. “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

This part of Barack Hussein Obama’s political platform was quickly hidden away, never to be spoken of again.

At least, not openly.

As is my wont to do, I have been thinking back over Obama’s Imperial Presidency, and his statements concerning America’s Municipal Law Enforcement Organizations.

When issues involving law enforcement arose during his presidency, time and again, Obama came on the opposite side from every single local law enforcement organization.

Now, isn’t the President of the United States supposed to be on the side of Law and Order?

Biden certainly isn’t.

Neither is the man pulling his strings, the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

Why would Barack Hussein Obama not support local law enforcement during his “first” presidency?

Perhaps, because he wanted to build a National Municipal Law Enforcement Organization, under his command and the command of the Department of Justice.

Fast forward to today…

All of the cities and states which have experienced “trouble”  with police departments happen to be Blue States with Democrats in charge of State and Municipal Governments.

Instead of relying on traditional police departments and the American System of Law and Order, Democrats like those in the Minneapolis City Council want to have the power to circumvent the American System of Justice because of their issues in the past with it.

The death of ex-convict George Floyd gave them the excuse to attempt to defund police departments.

And now, with a Democrat in office, those who oppose Law and Order are all taking the side of the criminals.

Even the Democrat sitting behind the Oval Office…when he is not taking a nap.

Just like a criminal does not represent an entire race, neither do bad policemen represent an entire nation’s Law Enforcement Officers.

They are heroes.

And, while Biden’s Handlers had him speaking of his support for our men and women who comprise the Thin Blue Line, his previous campaign promises and proclamations say otherwise.

He is just another Far Left Democrat Politician who lies as easily as he breathes.

The overwhelming majority of Americans appreciate the Men and Women in Blue.

So do I.

So, please allow me to end today’s post with the text of a classic narration by the late, great Paul Harvey  titled “What is a Policeman?”

“A policeman is a composite of what all men are, I guess, a mingling of saint and sinner, dust and deity. What that really means is that they are exceptional, they are unusual. They are not commonplace. Buried under the froth is the fact, the fact is that less than one half of one percent of policeman misfit that uniform, and that is a better average than you’d find among clergymen.“What is a policeman?

“He of all men is at once the most needed, and the most wanted, a strangely nameless creature who is sir to his face and pig or worse behind his back. He must be such a diplomat that he can settle differences between individuals so that each will think he won, but, if a policeman is neat, he’s conceited, if he’s careless he’s a bum, if he’s pleasant, he’s a flirt, if he’s not, he’s a grouch.

“He must make instant decisions that would require months for a lawyer but if he hurries he’s careless, if he’s deliberate, he’s lazy. He must be first to an accident, infallible with diagnoses. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp.

“The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run and hit where it doesn’t hurt.

“He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform, and without being brutal. If you hit him he’s a coward, if he hits you, he’s a bully. The policeman from a single human hair must be able to describe the crime, the weapon the criminal, and tell you where the criminal is hiding but, if he catches the criminal he’s lucky, if he doesn’t he’s a dunce.

“He runs files and writes reports until his eyes ache to build a case against some felon who will get dealt out by some shameless shamus. The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy, and a gentle man. And of course, he’ll have to be a genius, because he’ll have to feed a family on a policeman’s salary.”

Until He Comes,

Disgruntled Employee Shoots 13, Kills 1 Plus Himself at Kroger in Collierville, TN…What is Happening to Us?

 

Kroger Collierville

WREG.com reports that

Multiple people were injured Thursday in a shooting inside the Kroger on Byhalia and Poplar Avenue in Collierville, a Memphis suburb, after an active shooter incident officials are calling the “most horrific event” in the town’s history.

Collierville Police Chief Dale Lane confirmed 13 people were shot, and one person killed. The suspected shooter also is dead, possibly from a self-inflicted gunshot, Lane said.

A family member and a Collierville alderman has identified one of the victims as Olivia King.

The suspect’s vehicle is still parked and is being investigated. Sources say the suspect was a sub contractor who did work in the store’s deli department.

Lane said officers entered the store just after 1:30 and found multiple people shot, and employees in hiding. He could not comment on whether the shooter was an employee, saying it was under investigation.

Lane called it “the most horrific event that’s occurred in Collierville history.”

Multiple witnesses report hearing at least a dozen shots. Some customers made it out of the store. Employees had others take shelter in the cooler, witnesses said.

One employee named Brignetta Dickerson, who says she’s worked at the Kroger for 32 years, told WREG she hid with her coworkers and several customers when they heard the gunshots.

She said her only concern was her customers and coworkers.

“I’m still in shock right now,” said Dickerson. “But I was calm. I was calm and told the customers and my co-workers ‘Just sit down and relax. You’ll be okay.’”

Jean Kurzawski said she worked in the back of the Kroger and heard noises toward the front entrance. She thought balloons were popping at first until she saw customers running. She escaped out a back exit and said she heard gunshots continuing behind her.

“I was just thinking, oh I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, he’s gonna shoot me,” she said.

Collierville High School was briefly sheltering in place.

Multiple ambulances were seen entering Regional One Hospital in Memphis. The hospital reported it saw nine patients, four in critical condition and five non-critical.

Kroger released a statement on the shooting:

We are deeply saddened by the incident that occurred at our Kroger store located on New Byhalia Rd. in Collierville, TN – a suburb of Memphis. The entire Kroger family offers our thoughts, prayers and support to the individuals and families of the victims during this difficult time. We are cooperating with local law enforcement, who have secured the store and parking lot. The store will remain closed while the police investigation continues, and we have initiated counseling services for our associates. To protect the integrity of the ongoing investigation, we are referring questions to the Collierville Police Department.

The Collierville store will remain closed until further notice, Kroger Delta Division spokeswoman Teresa Dickerson said.

“We are praying for our associates here in Collierville,” she said.

Collierville is a beautiful town right outside of Memphis, TN.

Having lived in the Memphis Area most of my life, I have high school friends who live in Collierville.

When the news came on in the break room where I work, my first thought was that one or more of them may have been in the Kroger Grocery Store when this horrible event occurred.

I immediately went to Facebook to check and, thank God, none of them were in the store at that time.

Since the shooting, word has come out and has been confirmed that a disgruntled employee was the shooter.

If gave me a horrible feeling of Deja Vu, as this was very similar to the Southaven, MS Walmart Shooting back in July of 2019 when a fired employee ambushed the Store Manager as he got out of his car as he arrived to work. The murderer set the baby area of the store on fire and then killed the grocery manager, who also had a part in his firing.

That piece of trash got burned but survived.

I am sure that over the next several days that the Powers-That-Be in Memphis will get their mugs in front of every Television News Camera that they can and holler for “Gun Control”, which will be an extremely hypocritical move being that Memphis is the Third Most Dangerous City in America.

As Democratically-controlled cities like Memphis, Chicago, and New York have found out the hard way, strict gun control laws do not work.

Outlaws will find a way to get guns. That is why they are called “outlaws”.

And the only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

Guns can not pull their own trigger.

What happened yesterday was horribly tragic.

Unfortunately, we live in a different culture than a lot of us grew up in.

When God’s Word is replaced by man’s Political Expediencies, society begins to call good “evil” and evil “good”.

And, without having a Solid Rock to stand on, society crumbles.

As Democrats Continue to Try to Defund The Police, Biden Insists That “Crime Prevention” Equals Gun Control…Totalitarianism, Anyone?

FoxNews.com reports that

President Biden in remarks Wednesday said his crime prevention strategy would focus on strengthening background checks, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and boosting community policing.

Biden met with state and local leaders and law enforcement officials ahead of his remarks to talk crime prevention strategy, amid a surge in violence in cities across the U.S.

Both Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland, who spoke before him, pointed to a historic rise in crime in the summertime, and said that rise “may be more pronounced” as the nation comes out of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The White House has insisted curbing gun violence is key to tamping down a “staggering” surge of crime across the U.S.

“Talk to most responsible gun owners they’ll tell you there’s no possible justification for having 100 rounds in a magazine,” Biden said.

Biden also took aim at an argument used by Second Amendment advocates, that the right to self-defense needed to protect against potential government tyranny.

“Those who say the blood of Patriots, you know, and all the stuff about how we’re gonna have to move against the government,” Biden said. “If you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.”

“We’re not changing the Constitution. We’re enforcing it,” the president continued.
Biden touted “zero tolerance” for gun dealers who willfully violate the law, and claimed that 90% of illegal guns found at crime scenes were traced back to 5% of gun dealers.

The “zero-tolerance” policy targets federally licensed firearms dealers who “willfully” transfer a weapon to someone prohibited from owning one or ignore a tracing request from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). The ATF would seek to revoke the dealer’s license after the first offense, a senior White House official said.

“If you willfully sell a gun to someone who’s prohibited from possessing it, if you willfully fail to run a background check, if you willfully falsify a record … my message to you is this: We’ll find you and we will seek your license to sell guns,” Biden said.

The National Rifle Association said the Biden initiative was an attempt to distract from the true causes of a rise in crime.

“This is a political red herring aimed at hiding the real and abysmal failures of the Biden administration,” NRS spokeswoman Amy Hunter told Fox News. “Crime rates are high because of the efforts to defund the police and a failure to prosecute career criminals. The simple fact is strict enforcement of existing laws – including gun laws – coupled with support of law enforcement and prosecutors to do their jobs would result in a dramatic decrease in crime. But, the president would rather play politics than make Americans safer.”

Biden also boasted of “historic funding for crime prevention” in the $350 billion for state and local governments, from the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package, that can be used by cities to hire law enforcement officers, pay overtime, prosecute gun traffickers and invest in technology to make law enforcement more efficient. Officials said the Biden administration hoped cities would choose to use the money for alternatives to policing, too, and to invest in community policing models.

The administration has also taken aim at “ghost guns” and modified firearms, which are homemade firearms without serial numbers that can be used to trace them, making it difficult for law enforcement to determine where, by whom, or when they were manufactured and to whom they were sold.

The Justice Department’s ATF last month sought to update the legal definition of “firearm” in an effort to crack down on ghost guns.

Biden also pushed hiring programs to keep young people busy and off the streets during the summer months, as they’re often both the target and perpetrators of such violence. Biden said such programs encouraged youth to “pick up a paycheck instead of a pistol.”

The president said the DOJ has created five new “strike forces” to crack down on illegal gun trafficking cartels and called on the Senate to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, thereby closing the “boyfriend loophole” to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers.

During the Democratic Primary Candidates Debates last year, Candidate Joe Biden said,

“150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie (Sanders) voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability, more than all the wars, including Vietnam from that point on.”

The heavily inflated figure misrepresented gun deaths in America since 2007. From 2007 to 2017, the number of firearm deaths in the U.S. was 373,663. This number includes both violent firearm deaths and unintentional or accidental deaths, according to the Center for American Progress, an organization that promotes progressive values.

More in line with Biden’s figures, an analysis of FBI statistics by the Center found that from 2008 through 2017, more than 1.5 million aggravated assaults involved a firearm, with rates varying significantly across the states.

“If I’m elected, NRA [the National Rifle Association], I’m coming for you and gun manufacturers, I’m gonna take you on and I’m gonna beat you,” Biden said.

For years, Democrat politicians like the Dummy From Delaware have been on a crusade to pass stricter and stricter gun control laws, literally foaming at the mouth to take the right to own guns, guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, away from average law-abiding Americans.

I have always wondered why they have never attempted to get tough with those who break our laws by committing gun violence, instead of trying to take away our Constitutional Right to be able to defend ourselves.

Was it just naiveté on the part of Democrats …or something else?

And then…the Democrats built a wall around our nation’s Capitol.

And, I wondered no more.

Today’s Democrat Elite have allowed their own arrogance to blossom into totalitarianism.

Their zeal to radically change our Constitutional Republic into just another Democratic Socialist failure of a country, like those in Europe and South America, has led them to no longer wish to hear any other political opinions except their own.

The Democrats, led by the Biden-Harris Administration, through their push for continued lockdowns, expanded “Unemployment” payments, flooding our Southern Border with illegal aliens, and now, attempting to abridge our Second Amendment Rights, are employing a political strategy designed to turn America into a country whose people have restricted liberty given to them by an all-powerful Central Government, instead of by “Our Creator”.

Sound familiar?

Sure, Sleepy Joe told us yesterday that he and his fellow totalitarians are “not changing the Constitution”…”they’re enforcing it”, meaning that their going after our guns is not an abridgement of our Second Amendment Rights.

And, Germany’s National Socialist Party told the European Jews that they were simply going to be “relocated”.

The name of the game, boys and girls, is ‘CONTROL”.

Give the Democrats an inch and they will take a mile.

Those who have come before us did not give up their lives on the field of battle while preserving our liberty for us to willingly give it away to a demented doddering old fool who cannot even read a teleprompter correctly.

 Those whom we have elected to represent us in Washington MUST fight for our American Freedoms.

Or, we need to boot them out and replace them with those who will.

Until He Comes,

CMT Country Music Awards Goes “Woke”…That Ain’t Country!

Image

I miss “Hee Haw”.

FoxNews.com reports that

The Country Music Television (CMT) Music Awards are here.

The star-studded event kicked off from Nashville, Tenn., Wednesday evening with a performance by Lady A. The trio was joined onstage by Carly Pearce and Lindsay Ell.

Ell stepped in after Gabby Barrett bowed out, citing “personal circumstances.”

Cameras then took viewers to a farm where Chris Stapleton performed “Arkansas.”

Following the two performances, hosts Kane Brown and Kelsea Ballerini took the stage. “After this year … I’m thirsty for a great party,” Brown said.

“This is awesome. First of all, we’re back and making music people,” Kimberly Schlapman yelled, referring to the pandemic.

“I know you like drinking songs,” Karen Fairchild added.

The award was presented by Trace Adkins and Taylor Lewan of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, who poked fun at country music “lingo” by asking Adkins what a dobro, diminished fifth and bluegrass is – refuting the expert’s answers with silly jokes.

Lewan told Adkins that a diminished fifth was when a drinker has less whiskey than they expected and that a dobro is a friend who eats too much pizza.

Hailey Whitters then took the stage to sing her hit “Fillin’ My Cup.” Miranda Lambert also performed a stripped-down version of her hit “Tequila Does.” She sang around a campfire alongside Jon Randall and Jack Ingram. Luke Combs also performed.

Linda Martell, who is one of the pioneering Black acts in country music and the first Black woman to perform solo at the Grand Ole Opry, received the CMT Equal Play Award.

Comedian Iliza Shlesinger took the stage next to poke fun at country music lyrics, particularly from some of the genre’s top female artists.

She pointed out “violent” lyrics in songs from Carrie Underwood and Lambert, suggesting that a “CSI: Nashville” television show be developed based on songs like “Before He Cheats.” The remark was a reference to the long-running CBS drama “CSI” and its spinoffs, which followed crime scene investigators.

The star presented the award for collaborative video of the year, which was given to Chris Young and Brown for their tune “Famous Friends.”

The CMT Music Awards will honor acts in country music but will also share its stage with pop and R&B stars, including Gladys Knight, Pink, John Legend, Halsey, H.E.R. and Noah Cyrus.

Knight and Mickey Guyton will perform together and Stapleton and fellow guitar slayer H.E.R. are joining forces onstage at Wednesday’s show celebrating the year’s best country music videos.

Both Maren Morris and Barrett were originally set to perform at the CMT Awards but backed out.

By the way,, boys and girls.

Did y’all know that CMT encouraged their viewers to wear orange for “Gun Control”?

Needless to say, Country Music Fans, their core audience, are not complying.

SJW has now officially come to Modern “Country” Music.

The East Cost/Left Coast Power Brokers have done to Country Music exactly what they did to Classical Liberalism.

They have jettisoned Traditional American Faith and Values for a shallow hedonistic conflagration of drinkin’, cheatin’, partyin’, and Liberal Politics, changing an entire music genre into something that it never was and was never meant to be.

On this Mississippi June Morning, just a few miles away from Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley, I sit here reflecting on the influence which actual Country Music had on my young life, growing up with my Mother and Daddy.

Every family, to this day, has rituals that they observe like clockwork.

Our Saturday Night Ritual was to eat homemade hamburgers, spaghetti, or crockpot beans off of TV trays and watch “Hee Haw”, the syndicated country music variety show, out of Nashville, which starred Buck Owens, Roy Clark, and a “cast of thousands”.

The snotty folks up in the Northeast Corridor and Hollyweird never could figure out what made that “hick show”, that lasted 25 years, so popular.

After all, it was about traditional American Values, love of God and Country, respecting our American Musical Heritage, and featured talented performers who wrote songs, sang, played their own instruments, loved and appreciated their fans, and actually behaved like average Americans.

Plus, they had the good grace and common sense to keep their private lives, private.

At this time in our country’s history, when morality has become relative and ethics situational, we find our hearts crying out to hear something that will soothe our troubled souls.

Instead, we find synthesized, mass-produced Pop Music and “so-called” Country Music, actually more Pop Music, manufactured in New York City (pronounced like they did in the old Pace Salsa Commercials), advocating meaningless one-night stands and encouraging the debasement of the human soul, instead of its ability to rise above any obstacle in its path that might hinder individual achievement.

With all of today’s over-produced, under-written Pop and Country-Pop Music flooding the airwaves of both broadcast and satellite radio, Americans my age wonder where all the great Country Songwriters and Performers have gone to?

What is happening to country music reflects a lot about the culture we live in. Artists who actually lived what they sung about like Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Tammy Wynette, The Statlers, Jim Ed Brown, Porter Waggoner, Hank Williams, Jr., Randy Travis, Jeannie C. Riley, and Elvis Presley have been replaced by fashion models and wannabe rappers and rock stars.

Please don’t get me wrong.

There are still Americans performing country music. Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Reba McEntire, Martina McBride, Clint Black, and Brooks and Dunn,  among others, are still attempting to keep the spirit of Country Music alive.

However, in our culture of fast lives, fast food, and instant gratification, superficiality sells. That’s how we got stuck for 8 long years with Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

It is easier and more profitable for a record company to sell someone who looks good and can sing a little, or to release a country music album made by a fading rock star, than it is for them to market someone who is unbelievably talented and writes their own songs, but who resembles your next door neighbor.

What the heck do Gladys Knight and John Legend have to do with Country Music?

Remember the Bruce Springsteen and Van Morrison Country Music CD fiascos?

No? I don’t blame you. I wouldn’t admit it, either.

Can you imagine Hank Williams, Sr., Patsy Cline, or Buck Owens trying to get a record deal today?

I’m sorry Mr. Williams. Your vocalization is way too twangy and you drink way too much. “I Saw The Light”? What kind of song is that? A song about redemption? Get real. “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry”? Who Cares? You’re just not marketable.

Ms. Cline, we can’t use you. You look like somebody’s next door neighbor.

Mr. Owens, what is the “Bakersfield Sound” that you’re talking about? That won’t get any airtime in New York City. “Act Naturally”? That’s a song? Next thing you know, you’ll tell me that the Beatles will want to record it.

Now you know why Toby Keith formed his own record label.

The big recording companies like RCA Nashville and Arista are run like any other business. Executives are transferred from other cities and other divisions within the company and are judged to be successful by the amount of revenue they generate.

The decision was made several years ago to turn country music into pop music. Country Music started the transition from Kitty Wells to Taylor Swift and from George Jones to Kid Rock in an effort to claim a bigger share of the CD-buying public.

The disconnect arises when you take a genre that has traditionally sung about God, America, family, and heartache and try to make it about fashionistas, MTV, and shallow people with situational morality and ethics.

Just like the Liberal Politics of the outspoken harpies, the Dixie Chicks, it just doesn’t work here in America’s Heartland.

As we say in Dixie,

That dog don’t hunt.

Alan Jackson and George Strait were prophets.

Nobody saw him running from sixteenth avenue
They never found the fingerprint or the weapon that was used
But someone killed country music, cut out its heart and soul
They got away with murder down on music row

The almighty dollar and the lust for worldwide fame
Slowly killed tradition and for that someone should hang
They all say not guilty, but the evidence will show
That murder was committed down on music row

For the steel guitars no longer cry and fiddles barely play
But drums and rock ‘n’ roll guitars are mixed up in your face
Old Hank wouldn’t have a chance on today’s radio
Since they committed murder, down on music row

They thought no one would miss it, once it was dead and gone
They said no one would buy them old drinking and cheating songs
Well I’ll still buy ’em
Well there ain’t no justice in it and the hard facts are cold
Murder’s been committed, down on music row

Oh, the steel guitars no longer cry and you can’t hear fiddles play
With drums and rock ‘n roll guitars mixed right up in your face
Why, the hag, he wouldn’t have a chance on today’s radio
Since they committed murder down on music row
Why, they even tell the posse to pack up and go back home
There’s been an awful murder down on music row

“Murder on Music Row”. George Strait/Alan Jackson, 2000

Please excuse my grammar,

But, what the East and Left Coast Liberals have done to “Country Music” today, ain’t just murder.

It’s a MASSACRE.

Until He Comes,

KJ

Biden Proclaims “No Amendment is Absolute” as He Rolls Out Gun Control Measures Which He Says Do Not “Impinge” on the 2nd Amendment…Scared, Yet?

President Biden spoke in the Rose Garden of the White House with Vice President Kamala Harris and Attorney General Merrick B. Garland on Thursday.

FoxNews.com reports that

President Biden on Thursday, in rolling out a set of executive orders on gun control, said “no amendment is absolute,” while maintaining that “nothing” he is recommending “impinges” on the Second Amendment.

“Today we’re taking steps to confront not just the gun crisis, but what is actually a public health crisis,” Biden said from the White House Thursday.

“Nothing, nothing I am about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment,” the president said, calling arguments suggesting that those constitutional rights are at stake “phony.”

“No amendment, no amendment to the Constitution is absolute,” he said. “You can’t yell ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater — recall a freedom of speech. From the very beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own. From the very beginning that the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren’t allowed to have weapons.”

He added: “So the idea is just bizarre, to suggest that some of the things we’re recommending are contrary to the Constitution.”

The president went on to call gun violence in the United States “an epidemic.”

“Let me say it again, gun violence in this country is an epidemic,” Biden said. “And it’s an international embarrassment.”

Biden announced a set of executive actions and legislative proposals on gun control Thursday.

Biden is asking that the Justice Department, within a month, propose a rule to stop “ghost guns,” which are “kits” people can buy legally then fully assemble to create a functioning firearm that does not have a serial number.

Biden is also asking the DOJ within 60 days to propose a rule on braces used for handguns, which make them more accurate; proposing action on “community violence intervention”; asking the DOJ to publish suggestions for “red flag” legislation; and having his administration issue a report on gun trafficking. 

Biden also formally announced David Chipman as the director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). 

A senior administration official Wednesday said that Chipman will respect the Second Amendment while he enforces gun laws. 

The Biden administration is also expected to throw its weight behind gun control proposals in Congress. 

Here is how our Founding Fathers would have responded to the Dummy From Delaware, Joe Biden…

[T]he said Constitution [should] be never construed . . . to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms. Samuel Adams, Signer of the Declaration, “Father of the American Revolution” 

The right . . . of bearing arms . . . is declared to be inherent in the people. Fisher Ames, A Framer of the Second Amendment in the First Congress 

[T]he advantage of being armed [is an advantage which] the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation. . . . [I]n the several kingdoms of Europe . . . the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. James Madison, U.S. President, Signer of the Constitution, a Framer of the Second Amendment in the first congress

[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them. Richard Henry Lee, Signer of the Declaration, A Framer of the Second Amendment in the First Congress 

Democrats like Biden believe that the Constitution is a “fluid” document, subject to change to fit the political ideology of those who happen to be the majority party, presiding over the Executive and Legislative Branches of our Federal Government at the time.

That is where they are wrong…and they know it…but, they do not care, as evidenced by the bullying and didactic tone which Biden took during his Royal Proclamation yesterday.

The Constitution was written by brilliant men who foresaw the possibility of a minority of tyrants attempting to take over and change our Constitutional Republic into a tyrannical form of government, such as they left behind in Europe.

And, that, boys and girls, after hearing President Joe Biden threaten the Second Amendment, appears to be exactly what the Democrats want for the future of our Sovereign Nation and our children and grandchildren.

By proclaiming, like a monarch, that “no amendment is absolute”, Biden has warned us that changing the Second Amendment of OUR Constitution, a part of OUR Bill of Rights, is a very real possibility, if he can get the “Fools on the Hill”, otherwise known as Congress, to go along with it.

And, if that happens, what is to stop them from “radically changing” the First Amendment, as well?

And, God forbid, if all of that happens, our Constitutional Republic will no longer exist and America will be just another failed Democratic Socialist Third World Barrio, instead of “The Shining City Up On A Hill”.

It is time to “put on the whole Armor of God”, to pray, and to call our Representatives in Washington and tell them that We The People will not stand for this…and if they want to keep their jobs they had better start fighting against this “Russian Revolution II” and the unwanted revision of OUR Constitution.

Or they are going to be out of a job.

God protect us.

Until He Comes,

KJ
