And that is precisely the reason conservatives have so consistently taken a sledgehammer to it….For almost a year, they’ve gone to war with ex-IRS official Lois Lerner, over allegations the IRS improperly targeted conservative groups….Conservatives recognize that one of the only things standing between us and a genuine plutocracy are thousands of anonymous bureaucrats doing the basic work of enforcing our nation’s laws.”

To say, ‘Hey, Republicans were wrong — we got the enrollment up.

“You know, it’s fairly well discussed inside CBS News that there are some managers recently who have been so ideologically entrenched that there is a feeling and discussion that some of them, certainly not all of them, have a difficult time viewing a story that may reflect negatively upon government or the administration as a story of value….They never mind the stories that seem to, for example — and I did plenty of them — go against the grain of the Republican Party….I didn’t sense any resistance in doing stories that were perceived to be negative to the Bush administration — by anybody, ever. I do — I have done stories that I perceived were not received well because people thought they would reflect poorly upon this [the Obama] administration.”
— Former CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson on CNN’s Reliable Sources, April 20.
“My question for liberals, Ed, is when do more boycotts of Rush Limbaugh’s sponsors come? You know, there’s been some racist garbage over the years. He’s been racist on any number of occasions. And so, you get a little bit of a boycott or a little bit of a sense that, you know, the sponsors should be challenged as they would be on the other side of the spectrum, if the shoe, so to speak, were on the other foot, on the foot of a Democratic talk show host. But you don’t see any sustained organization on the part of liberals to go after Limbaugh. We’ll see if that takes place in the future.”
— Longtime Newsweek senior editor Jonathan Alter, now an MSNBC political analyst, on MSNBC’s The Ed Show, April 15.
“Have Republicans on the right given up on beating Hillary Clinton in the center? Have they given up on beating her altogether? Or could they truly believe that the voters of this country are angry enough to follow them across the political spectrum from Barack Obama all the way to the ticked off-outskirts home to libertarian Rand Paul and hard-right Ted Cruz? Do they really think America is ready for a dance in the moonlight with one of those guys?”
— Host Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball, April 14.
“I think if you look back at 2012 and the series of interviews that the sitting President of the United States gave, probably the toughest interview he had was with Jon Stewart.

Who is Ed Mezvinsky?…
Edward “Ed” Mezvinsky born January 17, 1937, is a former Democrat congressman.
from 1973 to 1977.
He and the Clinton’s were very politically intertwined for years.
In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 charges of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud.
He was sentenced to 80 months in (Federal) prison.
After serving five years in federal prison, he was released in April 2008. He remained on federal probation through 2011,
and still owes $9.4 million in restitution to his victims.
So who is he?
Marc and Chelsea Mezvinsky
He’s Chelsea Clinton’s father-in law.
Has anyone heard mention of this in any of the media?
If this guy was Jenna or Barbara Bush‘s, or better yet, Sarah Palin’s daughter’s, father-in- law, the news would be an everyday headline.
Some say there are no double standards in politics . . . S-u-r-e there aren’t…
What if people with rifles and shotguns and knives and baseball bats and pistols and swords went on a rampage and killed children in this country and were so demented, so evil and so effective that they murdered one child every 20 seconds…every hour, every day, every month, every year, for four decades. That would mean that almost 56 million children would never grow up and turn out to be whom God had desired.
If demented evil individuals did that, this country would be at war. It would not be allowed. America would be considered a tyrannical evil country. The President would not allow it and no one else would either.
And yet……….they do.
The taking of a human life takes place that often and has been since 1973.
Every twenty seconds.
Roe vs. Wade.
If you were God wouldn’t you be furious? Wouldn’t you turn your back on the society that continually murders His creations? Wouldn’t you allow that society to learn a lesson? Wouldn’t you allow them to be so afflicted that they would return to Him?

CNN host and outspoken gun-control advocate Piers Morgan once joked about shooting professional enemies and separately wrote that he was a “rabid fascist” who wanted burglars tortured after a “decent period of cattle-prodding, testicle electrode treatment, and slow gentle skewering over hot coals.”
Republican senator Ted Cruz of Texas said Thursday that Barack Obama is “high on his own power” with regard to the president’s announced efforts on gun control. Speaking on Laura Ingraham’s radio talk show, Cruz, who was just elected to the Senate last November, said “this is a president who has drunk the Kool-Aid.” … (more)

Big Day For Gun Owners This Friday
Right now, the hate-America crowd at the United Nations is huddled with members of the Obama Administration – led by Sec. of State Hillary Clinton – to put the final touches on an international treaty that takes direct aim at the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Too absurd to be believable, you say? Don’t just take our word for it.
As Dick Morris recently wrote in The Hill, the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) being hashed out behind closed doors at U.N. headquarters in New York City “marks the beginning of an international crusade to impose gun controls on the United States and repeal our Second Amendment rights.“
And with the month-long negations over this dangerous treaty scheduled to conclude on July 27 – This Week – we have no time to waste to stop this dangerous treaty dead in its tracks.
The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty Exposed
The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) has been in the works for a number of years.
Recognizing its threat, President George W. Bush rejected the treaty back in 2006 when the U.N. first voted to proceed with its development. But in a stunning reversal of U.S. policy, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are now supporting the U.N. negotiations and are working feverously to finalize ATT by July 27.
ATT supporters claim the treaty is designed simply to prevent illegal arms trade between dangerous rogue nations. But Second Amendment proponents here in the U.S. have studied it carefully and are exposing ATT for what it really is.
Chris Cox, Executive Director of the National Rifle Association-ILA had this to say about ATT:
“The U.N. wants to implement international gun registration requirements, bans on commonly owned firearms, tracking and registration of ammunition purchases, and create a new U.N. gun control bureaucracy.”
“You might think that something so obviously menacing to one of our enumerated fundamental rights would receive a strong rebuke from our top government leaders. But you’d be wrong. This is President Barack Obama’s vision for America, and we’re expected to just go along with it.”
Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton also is sounding the alarm.
“The administration is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there’s no doubt…that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”
Make no mistake: Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are doing everything they can to deflect attention from these very real concerns, but if ATT is signed and ratified, the ultimate result will be over-burdensome gun registration requirements, severe restrictions on gun ownership and ammunition purchases and eventual outright gun bans right here in the United States.
Guess Which Nation Is Leading the U.N. Assault
on The Second Amendment…
The United Nations is often referred to as the “theater of the absurd” for good reason. And its appointment of the nation to lead the Arms Trade Treaty Conference would be laughable if the issue wasn’t so serious.
The nation that is leading the ATT negotiations? IRAN
No, we couldn’t make that up if we tried. Earlier this month, U.N. Watch, a human rights group that monitors the U.N., revealed that Iran was elected to lead the ATT conference at which the treaty is being finalized. As Hillel Neuer, executive director of U.N. Watch, put it:
“Right after a UN Security Council report found Iran guilty of illegally transferring guns and bombs to Syria, which is now murdering thousands of its own people, it defies logic, morality and common sense for the UN to now elect this same regime to a global post regulating the transfer of guns and bombs.
“This is like choosing Bernie Madoff to police fraud on the stock market.”
Iran’s role in leading the talks to finalize the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty is reason enough to oppose it. That this treaty takes direct aim at our right to keep and bear arms as law-abiding American citizens should render ATT dead on arrival.
America simply cannot allow any more of her sovereignty to be forfeited to the United Nations “world community” — especially not the fundamental right that has protected us from tyranny for over two centuries.
The good news is we can stop ratification of the ATT. Under the U.S. Constitution, all treaties must receive the support of two-thirds of the Senate before they can be ratified.
That’s why we must act right now to force at least 34 Members of the United States Senate to make clear, in no uncertain terms, that this effort to use the U.N. to eradicate the Second Amendment is dead on arrival – before Barack Obama signs it.
We must force 34 Senators to stand up on behalf of all law-abiding American citizens and say to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the tyrants and despots that dominate the U.N., (to paraphrase former National Rifle Association President Charlton Heston) “From Our Cold, Dead Hands!”
Please stand with us now; demand the Senate speak as one American voice and decry any attempt to destroy our Second Amendment.
Yours In Freedom,
Immediate Action: Less Than 4 Days Away
ATT Treaty Could Be Written By July 27th
Stop the UN From Taking Our Guns!
If you are not already scared to death of the vision and direction of the Obama Administration this will surely rattle your gun safe. Throughout the month of July at a UN conference, attendees will modify and cement all the parts of the ‘Arms Trade Treaty‘. Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have shown support for this treaty and will approve it once the opportunity arrives. Once they sign the treaty our last defense is the senate; they would need 67 out of 100 votes to pass ATT. We must be sure to remind every member of the Senate to protect our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
As usual, the UN is completely vague as to what this treaty will consist of. They just tell us not to worry, our rights to own weapons are not in jeopardy. “The outcome will not seek to prohibit citizens of any country from possessing firearms or to interfere with the legal trade in small arms and light weapons.” Said one UN officer. But in fact, this is what the treaty could bring to our United States:
• Enact internationally agreed licensing requirements for Americans
• Confiscate and destroy unauthorized firearms of Americans while allowing the U.S. government to keep theirs
• Ban the trade, sale, and private ownership of semi-automatic guns
• Create and mandate an international registry to organize an encompassing gun confiscation in America
It is hard to imagine any American would vote to pass this treaty but that is what we must prevent. Our forefathers fought for our freedoms over two hundred years ago. One of the most important freedoms they knew Americans must have was the right to Keep and Bear Arms. Now we are fighting for that same right today. We are fighting in a different way than our forefathers had to but if Uncle Sam comes to our homes trying to confiscate our weapons it may turn into a similar fight.
We do have support from members of Congress. On June 29, 130 members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to President Obama and Hillary Clinton stating that this treaty infringes on our Citizen’s rights to keep and bear arms. They also expressed that the U.S Government does not have the right to support a treaty that violates the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
On a separate occasion, Senator Jerry Moran along with 44 other senators sent a different letter to Obama and Clinton with the same demands:
“Our country’s sovereignty and the Second Amendment rights of American citizens must not be infringed upon by the United Nations. Today, the Senate sends a powerful message to the Obama Administration: an Arms Trade Treaty that does not protect ownership of civilian firearms will fail in the Senate. Our firearm freedoms are not negotiable.”
This stern letter gives us hope that the Senate will do the right thing when the opportunity presents itself. We must not wait around to see if they will do the right thing, we must demand they not pass this suffocating treaty in our United States. We are the greatest country in the world and we will fight to keep it that way.
