Anti-gun D.C. officials will move fast to stay landmark CCW ruling

Following the unusual Saturday release of the landmark right-to-carry ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr., that the Washington Times said yesterday essentially guts the District of Columbia’s gun laws banning carry of firearms outside the home, city officials are already working to put it on hold, the Washington Post reported today.

Regardless, this is another feather in the cap for the Second Amendment Foundation and its founder, Alan Gottlieb. SAF has emerged as a legal powerhouse on behalf of the Second Amendment since its earlier landmark case, McDonald v. City of Chicago, which incorporated the constitutional right to keep and bear arms to the states, via the 14th Amendment.

FK – It’s good that some are fighting and winning these legal battles but I struggle daily with the knowledge that we’ve had the net for 20 years now so there’s  no excuse for such evil ‘ignorance’ and no excuse for why we aren’t trying for treason and executing those elected and hired public servants who work to destroy the most basic right any creature possesses.

JAIME MAUSSAN, Imminent Alien Contact!

FK – Done a couple years back I suppose. Notice how the last segment is politicized. Some interesting stuff none the less.

There is one rule concerning this topic: You don’t blindly trust the first bunch that present themselves nor the second bunch nor the 2,002nd bunch. Got it?

But then every presidential election cycle proves millions don’t ‘get it.’ We’re a long way from being ready for whatever ‘higher level’ some think is almost here.

Does Russia (And Humanity) Have A Future? — Paul Craig Roberts

The Russian government has finally realized that it has no Western “partners,” and is complaining bitterly about the propagandistic lies and disinformation issued without any evidence whatsoever against the Russian government by Washington, its European vassals, and presstitute media.

Perhaps the Russian government thought that only Iraq, Libya, Syria, China, and Edward Snowden would be subjected to Washington’s lies and demonization.

It was obvious enough that Russia would be next.

The Russian government and Europe need to look beyond Washington’s propaganda, because the reality is much worst.

NATO commander General Breedlove and Senate bill 2277 clearly indicate that Washington is organizing itself and Europe for war against Russia (see my previously posted column).

FK – The beast is here already…

Just a Click Away

Complaints about information overload, usually couched in terms of the overabundance of books, have a long history — reaching back to Ecclesiastes 12:12 (“of making books there is no end,” probably from the 4th or 3rd century BC).  The ancient moralist Seneca complained that “the abundance of books is distraction” in the 1st century AD, and there have been other info-booms from time to time — the building of the Library of Alexandria in the 3rd century BC, or the development of newspapers starting in the 18th century.

The printing press was first developed around 1453; Gutenberg’s new technology moved beyond the experimental phase by 1480 and spread to some two dozen major urban centres, plus there were other short-lived presses in operation from time to time.  Contemporaries at first raved about the great speed with which books could be printed, and also about the drop in price — by 80% on one contemporary’s estimate in 1468.  But around 1500, humanist scholars began to bemoan new problems: printers in search of profit, they complained, rushed to print manuscripts without attention to the quality of the text, and the sheer mass of new books distracted readers from the focus on the ancient authors most worthy of attention.  Printers “fill the world with pamphlets and books that are foolish, ignorant, malignant, libellous, mad, impious and subversive; and such is the flood that even things that might have done some good lose all their goodness,” wrote Erasmus in the early 16th century, in the kind of tirade that might seem familiar to anyone exhausted by what they find online today.

Firearms carry ban struck down in D.C.

The ban on carrying of firearms by citizens in the nation’s capitol has been struck down by the United States District Court, District of Columbia, attorney Alan Gura, representing plaintiffs in Palmer vs. District of Columbia announced Saturday.

“In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny,” Senior Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr. wrote in a Memorandum-Decision Order signed Thursday and filed today.

FK – Some good news but the war grinds on… Now New Yawk City must fall. See next:

Court ruling on D.C. carry ban could have broad implications

In Historic Blow to Climate Hysteria, Australia Kills Carbon Tax

With final approval of the Senate on July 17, Australia officially became the first developed nation to repeal its deeply controversial tax on emissions of carbon dioxide, dealing a major setback to proponents of increasingly discredited man-made “global warming” theories. Climate realists worldwide celebrated the historic development, while enraged global-warming theorists furiously lashed out at Australian lawmakers. Analysts also noted that the repeal, shepherded through by conservative Prime Minister Tony Abbott, could be a foreshadowing of much bigger problems for the widely criticized United Nations anti-CO2 crusade. 

Of course, the new Australian leader actually rose to power in a landslide last year by promising the public that he would repeal the economy-crushing tax on CO2 emissions. Despite opposition from climate alarmists in the Labour Party and other smaller parties — extreme Greens Party boss Christine Milne even claimed Australia would become a “global pariah” — Abbott was finally able to fulfill what analysts said was his most important campaign pledge. Because his conservative-leaning Liberal Party does not control the Senate, however, the Australian prime minister relied on support of other parties to secure the historic 39 to 32 victory.

If the tax had not been killed, it was set to increase dramatically, dealing another major blow to embattled consumers and the economy. In 2015, the anti-carbon plot was even supposed to become a full-fledged cap-and-trade regime, where “permits” to emit CO2 could be bought and sold in a “carbon market.” However, the entire idea behind the plot is becoming increasingly controversial even among climate alarmists — especially as horrifying atrocities against poor people across Africa and Latin America linked to UN and World Bank “carbon offset” schemes began making headlines in recent years.

At the global level, Australian authorities under Abbott’s leadership have also bucked the UN and its sought-after carbon regime, too. Last year, Canberra, the capital of Australia, even declared that the nation would not accept any more UN “socialism masquerading as environmentalism.” That means, among other measures: no more funding for international climate hysteria and no more taxes supposedly aimed at controlling alleged “global warming,” officials said. Australian leaders also vowed not to accept any more planetary “agreements” or wealth-redistribution schemes, though some officials are reportedly wavering.

FK – Need to read all of that one and watch the vids on Agenda 21 on my ‘Must read/watch page’ linked above.

ATF: Guns Are the Problem

A closer look at what the ATF is doing, however, shows a change in direction with undiminished enthusiasm. The focus now is not on the criminal and his crime, either present or future, but instead on the gun — who’s making it, shipping it, or buying it. For that, the ATF is using an obscure section of the 1934 National Firearms Act (NFA) that allows the agency to go after violations perceived in the making, shipping, buying, and selling of firearms. The rules are tricky and often difficult to follow. Here’s a brief snippet:

No person shall make a firearm unless he has (a) filed with the Secretary a written application, in duplicate, to make and register the firearm on the form prescribed by the Secretary; (b) paid any tax payable on the making and such payment is evidenced by the proper stamp affixed to the original application form; (c) identified the firearm to be made in the application form in such manner as the Secretary may by regulations prescribe; (d) identified himself in the application form in such manner as the Secretary may by regulations prescribe, except that, if such person is an individual, the identification must include his fingerprints and his photograph; and (e) obtained the approval of the Secretary to make and register the firearm and the application form shows such approval. Applications shall be denied if the making or possession of the firearm would place the person making the firearm in violation of law.

According to the Justice Department, just when prosecutions of criminals using guns has appeared to taper off, prosecutions under this obscure part of the NFA has increased an astounding 243 percent just in the last five years, and is up another 129 percent so far this year.

FK – Will a republicrat congress do what should be done: Repeal GCA ’68 and the NFA, then shut down the BATF Nazi trash and try them all for treason and execute them and distribute their retirement funds among their victims?

Dave Kopel on the Legal Battle Against Colorado’s Gun Laws

FK – Kicking those evil creatures out of office isn’t enough. We need war crimes trials. All those involved with pushing, writing, voting for and enforcing such evil need to be tried for treason against Human Liberty and executed.

When the military shifts to laser rifles they won’t be in ‘common use’ among the public yet the public will have every right to own them since they own the military. Those who claim differently are traitors to the Bill of Rights and should be dealt with as I noted in the prior paragraph.

So many fail to see that the elites view us all as livestock. No farmer wants his cows packing Uzis when he hauls their calves off to the fattening pens.

U.S. General Calls For North American Union Slave Grid

FK – Good part time jobs is what we need. No one should have to commit all of their youth and health to helping make someone else richer.

Both parties are contributing to the enslavement of humanity and fences work both ways.

An extensive and thorough “Liberal”(commie) trash season whereby we eradicate enough of the trash to permanently keep it out of our governments and restore Liberty here is the only way. Our domestic blood enemies have orchestrated all this. It’s not accidental or just stupidity. Their leadership is evil and knows full well what it does.

We need a pledge of allegiance to Human Liberty not to a piece of cloth that has been hijacked and hasn’t stood for Liberty for over a century.

Nobody’s gonna get beamed up. It’s time to wake up and grow up.
