Amendment Defining Marriage


The Supreme Court is hearing arguments challenging Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment in California defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman.  Use this link to sign the petition in support of traditional marriage:

CNN states: “The stakes, though, are decidedly clearer. In the case argued Tuesday and another to be heard on Wednesday, the nine justices could fundamentally alter how American law treats marriage.”

The problem most Americans have with challenging California’s ban on same-sex marriage (and same sex unions) by going to the Supreme Court is that a small group of people are trying to force their lifestyle on the majority who voted against it.  United States of America is a nation that (supposedly) is ruled by law.  Therefore, when the people of California (and in other states) voted down same sex marriage/unions, the people’s vote should stand.  Keep in mind that, before an election, an item must gather enough signatures on a petition to be put on the ballot; the outcome of the election sets the law.

Proponents of same sex marriage/unions used everything within their rights (along with violence) to get out their message to people and to motivate their supporters to vote.  When the decision was made on proposition 8, the topic should have been over and done with, but supporters of same sex marriage/unions won’t take “no” for an answer.  They believe their lifestyle should be recognized legally by the state in spite of election results.

The problem with taking California’s proposition 8 ban on same sex marriage/unions to the Supreme Court is that, if the Justices vote against California, the federal government would be negating a state’s authority on marriage.  And that is exactly the problem Justice Kennedy has with making a ruling on this matter; believing the federal government should not be intruding on a state’s authority to regulate marriage.

To the extent the swing justice [Justice Kennedy] is wary of the political implications of striking down all states’ marriage laws, then he might not want a ruling that would set the logical precedent for such a move.  …Cato Institute

It was noted in a letter from ACLJ (American Center for Law and Justice) several years ago that legitimizing same sex marriage/unions would be no different than legalizing relationships between first cousins, brothers and sisters, fathers and daughters, mothers and sons, and polygamy.

Is the question really about procreation, equal rights, or REDEFINING MARRIAGE? Redefining Marriage is the problem most Conservatives have about courts giving same sex the right to marry and raise children.  The concern with same sex marriage/unions is that children will become confused about the role of men and women and relationships when the people they learn from are confused about these roles.  This seems to be a legitimate concern, which was discussed to a small degree in the CNN video, but it is misrepresented as a procreation issue and not a role model for what it means to be a man and what it means to be a women.

The justification for law-abiding citizens to keep & bear arms is as foundational as the right to life, liberty, free speech, religious expression, etc. As many intelligent people have said time and time again, without the 2nd Amendment, there is no 1st Amendment.

From Adam and Eve, to you and I, anybody who wishes to arm themselves, so long as they do not use those arms to oppress others, and deny them their Constitutional rights, here in America, may, and that right is protected by the immortal words of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which was, of course, included in the Bill of Rights that James Madison and others insisted on, before the Constitution was ratified.

Here’s the text of the Second Amendment, which is so critical to the securing of our liberty:

Amendment II

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.

And the Militia, in those days, just as it is (whether some admit it or not) today, consisted of every able-bodied man and older boys, who were capable of fighting.

Not only is it our Constitutional right to keep & bear arms, but it is a NATURAL LAW right, with which we are Endowed by our Creator, as the Declaration of Independence so eloquently reminds us:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…

One cannot reasonably ignore that foundational text of one of our most important founding documents; it we have the UNALIENABLE RIGHT TO LIFE, we have the right to self-defense, and we cannot really enjoy liberty, or the pursuit of happiness, in this life, if our life is cut short by a violent criminal (or tyrannical government), now, can we?

The the laws of nature and of Nature’s God grant mankind the right to self-defense. The principle of self-defense is such a fundamental one, that even the most peaceful major world religions, Judaism and Christianity, allow for the shedding of blood in self-defense. Denying Americans the fundamental right to keep and bear arms isn’t just unconstitutional. It’s immoral; if you deny somebody that right, then their blood is partially on the hands of those who instituted, and supported such regulations.

Here’s one of my favorite video clips, which includes five words that express how all Americans SHOULD feel about their 2nd Amendment rights:

From My Cold Dead hands

Every genocidal dictator in world history of which we’re aware had a policy of disarming the general population of the target nation. From Mao to Stalin to Hitler, all Marxist dictators wish to be able to slaughter innocents who disagree with them, without having to deal with a resistance that can shoot back. The Principles of Freedom enshrined in the Constitution are as necessary for a fullness of human happiness and prosperity as oxygen for us to breathe is necessary for our continued survival.

The Bill of Rights

The Militia of a nation are its able-bodied men. The right to keep & bear arms is a sacred right; it guarantees the security of a free state, from all threats, both foreign and domestic.

Any who wish to infringe upon this right must be viewed with extreme suspicion, if a people wishes to remain free. America has, for far too long, tolerated politicians’ demonizing of those who freely exercise their right to keep and bear arms.

It isn’t just time for that to stop, it’s time to actively work our tails off to ‘reset the system,’ and get legislation passed which recognizes the constitutionality of keeping and bearing arms, and which eliminates ALL REGULATIONS except keeping the dangerous mentally-ill and violent felons from lawfully exercising this right.

And access to ammunition, ammo clips, reloading supplies and equipment, gunsmithing, and other attendant devices, supplies, technologies, and materials, must be likewise protected. Americans have the right to purchase arms and attendant supplies at market cost, uninflated by artificial, bureaucratic means.

Rhetorical question: What have YOU done to prepare yourself and your family, so that you need not fear? Do you have sufficient food, water, fuel, clothing, boots/shoes, medical supplies, essential drugs, guns, ammunition, etc. stockpiled against the time of need?

If you haven’t get purchased your first pistol, revolver, home defense/combat shotgun, bolt action, lever action, or semiautomatic rifle, or battle rifle/machine gun, why not? What about stockpiling food, water, medical supplies, essential drugs, guns/ammunition, fuel, clothing & shoes (especially for growing kids), and other essentials? When will you begin to prepare? If you spend money on tobacco and/or alcohol, on Cable TV, on gambling, on eating out at restaurants, or any of the comforts of our modern society that aren’t essential to your survival, but not firearms, ammunition, food, fuel, water, medical supplies, essential drugs, etc., when are you going to wake up, and prepare for what’s coming?

Hopefully this week.

But enough of my words. I have a more comprehensive 2nd Amendment discussion thread on the way, but I thought that since we had that network downtime today and last night, I ought to get something useful and informative out before I finish my longer commentary and coverage of the growing threat to our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms. And while the purpose of this discussion thread is to let David Barton impart some of his impressive library of knowledge to us, via Glenn Beck’s TheBlazeTV, let’s first enjoy the NRA’s new ad exposing the incredible hypocrisy of the Barack Hussein Obama Regime and American Marxists:

And now, here’s the headline story from The Blaze:


Do You Know The History Of The NRA And The 2nd Amendment? David Barton’s Fascinating Lesson

Jan. 16, 2013 8:00am Tiffany Gabbay

As stronger sentiment concerning gun control mounts on the American streets, Glenn Beck invited renown historian and Wallbuilders founder David Barton on his Tuesday evening program to provide viewers with a comprehensive overview of the Second Amendment as a foundation for liberty and freedom.

Beck was compelled to provide this in-depth look after 19 potential executive actions were identified to move the Obama administration forward with new gun control measures. Those measures include but are not limited to: requiring mental health screenings of both the buyer and seller; banning military-style “assault” weapons and high-capacity magazines; issuing a statute prohibiting gun trafficking; and an “end” to the “hobbling of federal agencies.”

“This is not about preventing mass-murders it is about eliminating your right to bear arms,” Beck slammed. “This administration will never waste a good emergency.”

“Americans need to know where the Second Amendment even comes from…The history of our ‘why and how,’ and how it has shaped our foundation of freedom.”

A glance back in time

Barton, who has an extensive knowledge-base in American history, said that the Second Amendment is truly about a “certain set of principles.” He added that people should not separate the Second Amendment from other amendments, particularly the first five, as they are all aligned and part of one larger concept of protection of one’s self, religion and property. In other words ”unalienable rights.”

The Founding Fathers, according to Barton, believed that God gave these rights to mankind and that no government could take them away.

“That is why our government is different,” he explained, “other world governments trampled peoples rights… the idea was to prevent the government from ever trampling our rights.” He added that unlike any country in Europe, Americans insisted the government could not touch what God had given them.

The Founders also used the philosophy term “laws of nature and nature is God,” which Barton informed is contained in Blackstone’s commentary on the law. The idea is that certain things come to one from nature, such as the deep-seated biological mechanism of self-defense. The historian also noted that James Wilson, a signer of both the Constitution and Declaration of Independence noted that the law of nature is to defend oneself, and that — through the castle doctrine — a private citizen failing to defend his home or family — even with deadly force — would be considered negligence.

As the interview continued, Barton went on to explain how different the times were at America’s founding, and that citizens could even penalized for not carrying a gun. The topic then veered to the lawless days of the Wild West, its religious revival and the role of Texas Rangers in enforcing the law.

In addition, Barton addressed the founding of the NRA. While some like to demonize pro-Second Amendment group and even call it prejudiced, it turns out the powerful group was in fact started by two Union generals in 1871 as a means to driving out the Ku Klux Klan and ensuring that blacks, who although then-free were not allowed means with which to defend themselves — could in fact legally own a gun.

Barton also noted that even after the Whiskey and Shays rebellions, and even the assassinations of Lincoln Garfield and McKinley, calls for gun bans never came into play. In fact, the times even bolstered the Second Amendment.

It was not until the aftermath of Malcolm X, John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King’s assassination that then President Lyndon B. Johnson sought stricter gun control. Ironically, said Barton, President Reagan — although having survived an assassination attempt himself — was very much an adherent to the Second Amendment and opposed then assistant and White House Press Secretary Jim Brady’s bill.

Psychology professor Warren Throckmorton, a scholar who has challenged some of Barton’s facts in the past, took note of Barton’s assertion, however, revealing that Reagan actually favored the Brady bill. In an op-ed for the New York Times, Reagan wrote:

This level of violence must be stopped. Sarah and Jim Brady are working hard to do that, and I say more power to them. If the passage of the Brady bill were to result in a reduction of only 10 or 15 percent of those numbers (and it could be a good deal greater), it would be well worth making it the law of the land.

Reagan, while a proponent of the Second Amendment, had a more moderate view on gun control, revealing that people’s views on the issue, irrespective of political leaning, is as multi-layered as the types of legislations that have been brought to bear concerning the matter. For deeper insight into the Gipper’s views on gun control, please visit TheBlaze’s in-depth article here.

When asked how American citizens should react if government were to seek to claim their arms, Barton said that there is a host of lawyers working bro-bono to step in and help protect citizens’ gun rights.

Obama and The Constitution

Sorry that I took so long to publish this post. I guess I got side-tracked but I am publishing it now because the information is important for you to know.  It was originally dated on May 30, 2012.

Before you vote this November in the 2012 election, please consider the points discussed in the article posted by Jared Law and the Daily  Caller.

Where Are The Angry Elephants?
By Jared Law | Wednesday, May 30, 2012


JARED LAW FROM THE 912 PROJECT:  Republicans should be full of righteous indignation and lining up to take down Obama for his most recent insult of the American people. Why haven’t Republicans had enough?  Why aren’t they beginning impeachment proceedings?  Many Americans are asking these questions and so far, have not received acceptable answers!!

Is it a political calculation? Do they presume we’ll win in November, and that impeaching Obama will just give the radical left something about which to feel a false sense of righteous indignation, thus stirring them up, motivating them to beat us in November? Or are there simply too many ‘Progressive’ Republican cowards, including many the Tea Party movement elected in 2010?

Tens of millions of Americans watched as Barack Hussein Obama was sworn into office at the U.S. Capitol on January 20, 2009, with his left hand on the Bible and his right hand held aloft. Obama swore to God and Country that he would ‘preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.’ Since he messed up the oath, it was re-administered in private, without a Holy Bible, inside the White House, later that day.


Yet despite that sacred oath, Barack Hussein Obama has, time and time again, chosen to directly, flagrantly violate the principles of the founding document he swore to uphold, as well as the letter of the highest law of the land itself, turning America’s ship of state away from mere ‘Progressivism,’ all the way to a course that leads to a Marxist dictatorship, crushing American liberty, right and left, in a display of oath-breaking, and of anti-Americanism, never before seen in the White House, not even during the Carter or the Clinton administrations. Not even FDR & Woodrow Wilson, those demons of America’s past, have damaged America like Barack Hussein has.

The course Obama has set America on is a previously uncharted path of unconstitutionality that has already ‘fundamentally changed the United States of America,’ from an ailing Constitutional Republic that had been deeply damaged by ‘Progressives’ over the past century, to a nearly-unrecognizable Marxist oligarchy. Here are some of the ten most prominent of Obama’s gross violations of the Constitution, as compiled by the Daily Caller back in December of 2011:  <<read more>>


One of the biggest political changes that 2011 brought — in large part due to the tea parties and their effect on the 2010 election — is the centrality of the Constitution to our public discourse. Lawmakers and citizens no longer consider simply whether a given bill or policy proposal is a good idea but whether it is constitutional. “Where does the government get the power to do that?” is often critics’ rallying cry. 

Use this link to Read 8 reasons why “The Obama administration and its allies in Congress have perpetrated more than their share of such mob-like actions.  While it’s hard to narrow them down, here’s my stab at the government’s top 10 constitutional violations since President Obama took office.”





Patriotism is alive and well with many Americans but our youth don’t seem to know what makes America different than other governments and why the flag is important to us as a nation.

There is a strong movement among our youth in America toward communism. That is a frightening thought, because the young don’t have a memory to rely on of what threat Communism is to American’s way of life.

We need to teach our children as they grow up about what America stands for, it’s history, it’s patriots and heroes, and it’s values. When we constantly complain about what’s wrong with America and do nothing except complain, then our children grow up thinking our present form of government is bad. Is that what you want your children to pick up from your complaints?

Government at Home

I didn’t know anything about this idea, did you? I think it might be an interesting idea to explore. How differently would our Representatives behave if they knew we would see what they are doing?

U.S. Faces Another Downgrade

S&P’s Chambers Warns: US Faces Another Downgrade Without Budget Plan

The U.S. is lacking a plan to do something about $1 trillion deficits, and will soon face another rating cut in six to 24 months. Depending on the outcome of the November elections and what Congress decides to do about the spending spree this administration insists on, the United States will be cruising for a downgrade that lowers our standing in the world and our creditors — according to John Chambers of Standard & Poor’s.

America has had an AA-plus rating with a negative outlook since August 5, 2011 when the New York-based unit of McGraw-Hill Cos. stripped the nation of its AAA ranking for the first time, citing the government’s failure to agree on a path to reduce deficits.

The U.S. has a one-in-three chance of another downgrade, Chamber said during a recent S&P sponsored Webcast.


I am so frustrated with this administration and Congress. What do these people want for America? Do they really think they can keep spending recklessly and not have a negative repercussion that affects America and our families for decades, perhaps for centuries? If they know what they are doing, then they either have a plan that is very much contrary to the Constitution and the American People or they are too stupid to care and live only for today.

Perhaps, as I have said many times before, the plan is to bust America and turn her upside down. The only way out of such a situation would be to accept a new Constitution and way of life that we would never choose if we were solvent. I believe this is what the elite in Washington have planned for us. However, I find it hard to believe that those I respect could actually be planning the demise of America?

No doubt you have trouble believing that America is on the verge of collapse and calamity, and no doubt you have a hard time picturing America in chaos like this and perhaps in another civil war — Liberal/Progressivism vs Conservative/Constitutionalists. What this means is people will be at war with each other and their government.

The war will be about immigration, state rights, an over-extending government, and conservative values. It will be a war against those  who believe in standing by the Constitution and those who want America to change and become part of a Global Society (being more like European nations). These people do not seem to understand that there was a reason the Founders left European government behind them and established a better government. It is the elite, who want more power over the people, that are moving this nation toward a clash over America’s future.

You Opened My Eyes to the Catastrophic Enormity of This Financial Debacle’
Debt ceiling ‘medicine will become the poison,’ according to famed economist. Brace for economic meltdown. Watch the Aftershock Survival Summit Now, See the Evidence. 


What needs to happen is balancing the budget with a PLAN that is more that a few months to prevent a government shutdown. The Democrat controlled Congress has not had a balanced budget for how long? Then they waited for the Republicans to come in control and balance the budget but made it impossible to do!  Then the scum-bags won’t accept accountability for their lack of action and put the blame of the incoming Republicans.   It’s nothing but “stink’n politics” and I am sick of it, as I am sure you are too.

Chambers, managing director of sovereign ratings said, “What the U.S. needs is not so much a short-term fiscal tightening, but it has to have a credible medium-term fiscal plan…That is going to have to say something about entitlements, and that is probably going to have to say something about revenues.”

Bond investors ignored the downgrade, driving Treasury yields to the lowest levels in history, amid concern the U.S. economy was stalling and as Europe’s debt crisis intensified.

Treasurys have returned 3.9 percent since the rating cut and gained 9.8 percent last year, the debt’s best performance since 2008, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch index data.

“I don’t think anything is going to happen between now and the election in November,” Chambers said. S&P said in August that political brinkmanship over increasing the government’s debt ceiling year showed the U.S. is becoming “less stable, less effective and less predictable” as the Treasury almost reached its borrowing limit before the government reached a compromise.

The “political brinkmanship hasn’t gone away,” Chambers said. “That simply doesn’t happen in other AAA economies.” S&P’s Chambers Warns: US Faces Another Downgrade Without Budget Plan

The bottom line is that the U.S. has to stop spending, has to make a serious long-term budget, seriously do something about entitlements, and stop printing money we don’t have– pushing us into deeper debt.

As American citizens, WE MUST INSIST THAT OUR GOVERNMENT do the required steps mentioned above that gets us out of this mess. Again, this is what we must insist government will do NOW:

  • U.S. has to stop spending,
  • Make a serious long-term budget,
  • Seriously do something about entitlements,
  • Stop printing money we don’t have– pushing us into deeper debt.

This year MUST see drastic changes take place or the damage will too severe to fix and America will see a financial melt down that will be disastrous.

Sneaky Way to Take Away Guns

Did you see this email yet. I received it on December 2nd and just got around to reading it. If you haven’t read it yet, I suggest you do now.

This is another evil global plot to take away our guns, but it is very sneaky –That’s the only way they can get away with it.

Globalists just won’t give up on their goal to disarm America. That means there is a reason they want our guns, and that can’t be good.

SOMETHING YOU MAY NOT KNOW THAT IS HAPPENING Who is buying companies, manufacturing guns ????? For the last several years a company called The Freedom Group has been buying up gun and ammunition manufacturers. Some of the companies are Bushmaster, Marlin, Remington, DPMS, Dakota Arms and H&R. Some people worry that this Freedom Group is going to control most of the firearms companies in the United States.

If you control the manufacturers you can decide to stop selling to civilians. What a perfect way to control guns. Now if you do some digging you will see that The Freedom Group is owned by a company called Cerberus Capital Management.

A very large privately owned LLP with assets of $13 billion. The company is named after the three headed dog that guards the gates to hell. [Nice touch?] Guess who controls Cerberus??? GEORGE SOROS !!!!!!!!! One of the most evil men on this planet who wants to restrict or ban all civilian guns.

Please pass this on to all your freedom loving friends. This needs to come out. Why have we not heard about this in the “mainstream” media? I would think this would be BIG news. (Soros also owns Progressive Insurance)

If you don’t know who George Soros is, you need to do some research. He backed Obama with multi-millions of dollars and Obama is often characterized as a puppet on a string, controlled by Soros .

Send this to every gun owner in America!
