GUN CONTROL HISTORY?

Did you know the following?

According to rense.com:

  • In 2919, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. This doesn’t include the 30 million that “Uncle Joe” starved to death in the Ukraine.
  • In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, leaving a populace unable to defend itself against the Gestapo and the SS. Hundreds of thousands died as a result.
  • China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unale to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. The total dear are said to be 2-3 million.
  • Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, 1 to 2 million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • Gun owners in Australia were forced to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government in the late 1900s. This program cost the Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. First year results were as follows:
    • Australia-wide homicides went up 3.2 percent
    • Australia-wide assaults went up 8.6 percent.
    • Australia-wide, armed robberies went up 44 percent.
    • In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are no up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns.
  • Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th century because of gun control total 56 million at a bare minimum.

But the above could never happen in the United States. I think the Aussies might have said that also. While the figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, that changed drastically upward in the first year after gun confiscation, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

During World War II, the Japanese decided not to invade the USA because they knew most Americans were armed. Admiral Yamamoto, who crafted the attack on Pearly Harbor had attended Harvard University and was Naval Attaché to the United States from 1925 to 28. Most of our Navy was destroyed at Pearl Harbor and our Army had been deprived of finding and was ill prepared to defend the country.

It was reported that when asked why Japan did not follow up the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion of the U.S. Mainland, his reply was that he had lived in the U.S. and knew that almost all households had guns.

There’s a lot of things that I don’t understand about the left, but their stance and desire to take guns away from law abiding American citizens. Just because some nutcase kills nine people in a church in South Carolina is not reason to disallow a single mother with small children to be able to protect herself and her family should an intruder try to get into her home.

Until recently, folks were content to be able to have guns in their homes and felt they did not necessarily need a carry permit. Now that it’s been determined that the current president has no interest in protecting the American people, his main duty as president under the constitution, it is becoming more important that law abiding Americans not only own guns, but obtain permits to carry guns.

DISTURBING THINGS

The Paris attacks of November 13, 2015, of which ISIS has claimed credit, seem to have unleashed many disturbing things. The current president’s response to these attacks is unprecedented for any past leader of the free world. He has done nothing to insure the American people that he intends to carry out the oath he has taken twice where he swore to uphold the constitution of the United States of America, therefore, protect the Unites States and its citizens from harm. I’ve never commented on this, but I’m going to now. I am convinced that the president of the United States is either a Muslim or a strong Muslim sympathizer. There’s just too much evidence point the above. Every chance he has, he disses Christianity and tells us that we shouldn’t judge the Islam by the actions of a few. However, he has indicated that all conservatives/Republicans are his enemies and seems to be more energetic when disparaging conservatives/Republicans than when talking about the fight against terrorism as Rush Limbaugh opined when he was a guest on Fox News Sunday, November 22, 2015.

Also, on 11/22/2015, I read an article on WND.com by Paul Bremmer that further disturbs me and furthers my opinion that the current president of the United States is evil.

According to a recent study by a team of Italian researchers, if you think there might be something wrong with homosexuality, you may have a mental disorder. Discussing the study, lead researcher Emmanuele A. Jannini stated: “After discussing for centuries if homosexuality is to be considered a disease, for the first time we demonstrated that the real disease to be cured is homophobia, associated with potentially severe psychopathologies.”

According to Mr. Bremmer, the research team specifically found that psychoticism, immature defense mechanisms, and a fearful attachment style were associated with a greater homophobic attitude in individuals.

Bremmer goes on to indicate that award winning journalist and author David Kupelian was not surprised by this new study because he predicted exactly such developments in his latest book, “The Snapping of the American Mind.”

Kupelina predicted that the current obsession of the looney left, which dominates the social sciences, with pathologizing conservatives and Christians as ‘disordered’ would only accelerate.

We all know that those on the left would welcome any study that indicated conservatives had a mental disorders by the fact that they are conservative. They would say that study was sound and irrefutable. Then in order to protect conservatives from themselves and protect liberals from conservatives, perhaps conservatives should be rounded up and required to undergo various methods of treatment that could include sensitivity training, medication, and perhaps incarceration.

Kupelina has also revealed in his book that some researchers have endeavored to prove conservatives’ brains are structured differently. A 2010 study in the United Kingdom reported conservatives’ brains with larger amygdalas, the part of the brain associated with fear, anxiety, and emotion. In 2012, a University of Arkansas professor released a study linking conservative views to low brainpower, writing, “When under time pressure or otherwise cognitively impaired, people are more likely to express conservative views.

However, Kupelian revealed that contrary to what liberal social scientists might prefer, solid research has shown that those on the political left are far more likely to suffer from mental illness than those on the right.

Mr. Kupelina opines that the Obama administration seems most concerned about protecting the rest of the country from conservatives. And while conservatives had not yet been declared mentally ill, but the Department of Homeland Security released a report in 2009 warning of a rising domestic terrorist threat from rightwing extremism. Rightwing extremists, according the report, included returning military vetrans, people concerned about illegal immigration, constitutionalists, second amendment supporters, and pro-lifers, among others.

The old Soviet Union, as well as other communist/far-left governments demonized their ideological opponents and would put them in gulags for torture and eventual execution. While I believe that this is a long way from happening in the United States of America and I think a revolt would occur long before any of this would ever happen here, the left certainly does everything it can to destroy those who don’t tow the liberal line. And to be able to commit conservatives to mental institutions, medicate them to the point of submission, and taking away their right to vote and bear arms, is certainly a liberal’s dream.

DEFINITION OF HATER

I’ve often said that it seems the liberals/Democrats change the definition of racism to suit themselves. When they can’t win an argument with a conservative, which is well over 90 percent of the time, they begin hurling insults at you and one of those insults is usually racist, even if your discussion did not even touch upon race. My conclusion regarding this is since the current President of the United States is half black, if you disagree with his policies, you’re a racist.

Well, now it seems that if you disagree with the current President’s policies that you are deemed a hater. I’ve told this story many times and I’ll tell it again and again. When I was a little girl, the cold war was raging and Nikita Khrushchev, the first secretary of the central committee of the Communist party of the Soviet Union, declared to American parents that their children would live under Communism. I didn’t know what Communism was, but knew it was bad. When I was about five, I asked my grandmother about Communism. I don’t remember that much about the conversation, but I do remember my grandmother telling me that here in the United States, if you didn’t like or disagreed with your elected officials, you could say it right out loud. In the Soviet Union and other Communist nations, you couldn’t say bad things about the government. Even though I’m sure that my grandmother talked about free elections and other things, being able to say that I didn’t like what the government was doing stuck with me. As you know, I do exercise that right.

Hate is a powerful emotion and we should not hate. I can remember my mother, whenever I said that I hated someone, would remind me that it was a sin to hate. Instead, Mama told me that I should say that I didn’t care for someone.
I remember all the hate that was directed to former Presidents George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan. When I saw liberals depicting President Bush hanging from a tree, I would wince. When I saw the left depicting President Reagan as a clown, I would wince also. But you go on with your life, it’s politics. Now, it seems that if you disagree with the current President on policies that you are automatically dubbed a hater.

In a Daily Kos article dated January 4, 2015, Bernard Pliers wrote an article entitled, “Dear Obama Hater – You Just Wasted a Decade of Your Life.” I’m not sure if this article was directed at someone like me. I do not agree with this President politically and there is not a single issue on which I agree with him. I believe that he is a racist, a bigot, an Islamic terrorist sympathizer, and a socialist bordering on communist. I agree 100 percent with Rudy Giuliani that this President does not love the United States of America and has as his ultimate goal, the substantial weakening of this country. He is certainly not a President to all Americans and doesn’t care at all about the middle class. But, he might be fun to party with.

With regard to the above cited article, Mr. Pliers trashes conservatives and Tea Party members and indicates that they have wasted ten years of their lives and have nothing to show for it. Mr. Pliers goes on to chastise those who he deems Obama haters, indicating that while they wasted time hating the current President, they could have accomplished many things such as getting a college degree, writing a book, running their first marathon, and learning a foreign language. Now, I earned a college degree quite a few years before the current President was first elected and inaugurated. But I did write book during his administration and hope to have several more while he is still in office. I’ve also started a business, even though, according to the current President, I didn’t build it.
Then Mr. Pliers infers that we conservatives wouldn’t have done any of those things anyway because we were waiting for impeachment and for the GOP candidates to “take off the gloves.”

Mr. Pliers, there is absolutely nothing wrong with being a political junkie, nothing wrong with keeping up with current events, nothing wrong with disagreeing with your elected officials and letting them know it. In fact, that’s what our country’s forefathers intended us to do if we were to preserve our freedoms. Mr. Pliers, I’m not going to accept that the ACA was jammed down our throats utilizing every legislative trick the liberals could possible use. I’m not going to accept that this President or any President can, with the stroke of a pen, grant benefits to illegal aliens, change laws passed by Congress, shut down commerce, etc. I don’t like executive orders and think that they should be used sparingly, not when the President knows that something can’t get through Congress.

Furthermore, Mr. Pliers, I have a computer, in fact, I have three, and I have word processing software. I intend to make my feelings about our government officials known, whether I agree with them or not. I also hope to convey knowledge along the way. As Americans, we must hold our elected officials accountable, we must not accept everything they say and do. We must question all of them. Anyone that runs for public office should be prepared to answer questions and be held accountable. In fact, he or she should expect to be grilled and should welcome it.

You ended your article with this: “And the next time there is a GOP president, just remember that there will be fatal embassy attacks under the GOP president, just like the dozens of fatal embassy attacks that occurred under previous Republican presidents. Except Democrats won’t be working themselves into a frenzy of conspiracy theories when it happens, they won’ be cheerleading for the terrorists, and they won’t be trying to overthrow the U.S. government every time something happens.

Yes, Mr. Pliers, there will probably be additional embassy attacks, but it is my hope that any President, if embassy attacks occur under his or her watch, will be engaged and will take all precautions necessary to prevent the attack. If the attack does occur and Americans are killed, call the attack what it is and authorize the appropriate investigations into why the attack happened and how to prevent such attacks from occurring in the future. And then don’t lie to the American people about what actually caused the attack. If the current President and the “then” Secretary of State has been fully engaged before and after the attack and had not lied to the American people, telling them it was caused by a video, I doubt that many people, Republicans or Democrats would have said much of anything.

Conservatives are not cheerleading for terrorists. I don’t know where you got that from, but you are telling a lie. I don’t recall anyone making a prominent case for overthrowing the government. Again, that’s a lie.

Instead of trying to convince people who don’t agree with you, like me, with facts and statistics, you, like other liberals can only hurl insults. There are so many untruths in your article and I have only been able to get to a few of them. Hopefully, I will be able to address them in the future. Meanwhile, I have many other things to do, such as run my business, work on my next novel, and market my just released novel.

REPEATING HISTORY

According to globalpost.com, in an interview with a former Czech foreign minister, Karel Schwarzenberg, Russian president, Vladimir Putin, is repeating history by invading and annexing Crimea into Russia, much the same way that Adolph Hitler did in central and eastern Europe in the late 1930s. In late February/early March, Putin asked Russia’s parliament to allow him to send troops to Ukraine on the ruse of protecting ethnic Russians. When Hitler wanted to annex Austria, he said that it was to protect the Germans in Austria, according to Schwarzenberg. Hitler annexed then Czechoslovakia’s northern and western regions in 1938 under the pretext of protecting the ethnic German population there. The following year his forces occupied the rest of the country.

According to Bill O’Reilly in his talking points memo on Monday, April 14, it has become clear that Russia will try to seize part of the independent country of Ukraine. On April 12, a Russian fighter jet made multiple close-range passes near the USS Cook, a United States Navy Destroyer. According to csmonitor.com, the passes lasted about ninety minutes, escalating tensions in the area.

Further discussed in Mr. O’Reilly’s talking points was that the Ukrainian government is desperately seeking help from the United States and from the west. The current president does not want to help Ukraine because he knows that allies will not back him. Eastern European nations such as the Baltic States, Moldova, and Poland are concerned because the United States under the current president has displayed nothing but weakness when it comes to foreign policy.

It doesn’t take a genius to determine that Vladimir Putin is in the process of rebuilding the old Soviet Union, attempting to annex as much of Ukraine into Russia as he can. He doesn’t care what the rest of the world thinks because he knows that the current president of the United States is going to do little more than shake a finger at him, telling him that he had better be nice.

Juan Williams, a Fox News Analyst, indicated that he didn’t think that Vladimir Putin was another Adolph Hitler because the driving force behind Adolph Hitler was to destroy an entire race of people. How do we know what Putin’s ultimate goals are?

Former presidential candidate, John McCain, believes that we should be providing Ukraine with light weapons so they can defend themselves against Russian aggression. However, we know that our allies won’t back us up because they are afraid the Putin will turn off the energy spigot, freezing them to death.

The American people are “war weary” and they have every right to be. As such, they’re not showing any passion with regard to stopping Putin in his tracks. Putin knows this and perceives the United States as very weak. This is a dangerous situation that worsens from day to day and no one knows what is going to happen. I’m scared and I think all U.S. citizens should be scared as well.
