GOVERNMENT CONTROL NOT GUN CONTROL
By Jake MacAulay
January 12, 2017
The perpetrator in the latest U.S. gun rampage is Esteban Santiago, a 26-year-old Iraq war veteran who just one month ago told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents that he believed U.S. spies were controlling his mind. While blaming government mind-control is not a suitable alibi for many, I believe government gun control is.
Following the tragic shooting in Ft. Lauderdale on Friday, Barack Obama told George Stephanopoulos of ABC News, “We’re heartbroken for families who have been affected,” and, “These tragedies have happened far too often during the eight years that I’ve been president.”
Despite numerous attempts by this administration, their cronies, and their ilk to eradicate what the Second Amendment acknowledges as the God-given right to self defense and arms, Obama has admitted his own failures to protect American citizens.
So, since government gun control is an absolute failure, I thought I would call on more government-control, NOT more gun-control. We need to regulate the government from its insubordination to its God-given duty of “securing the rights of the people.” This insubordination called “gun control” has proven to be far more lethal to American life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness than the criminals from which it claims to protect.
I know this to be a fact: the plurality of American people are disgusted with the attempts of government to dominate their right to self defense. They have not only voted at the ballot box, but convincingly their wallets are talking. Gun manufacturers and retail stores cannot keep up with the demand for guns and ammo. Even the once extremely common .22 rim fire ammunition is as scarce as a dollar in the social security trust fund.
The promulgation of emotional ignorance has always been the tool to convince people to give up this right of self-preservation in favor of trusting that criminals will give up their crime and that government can boundlessly protect you.
As seen in every single mass shooting, the government is completely incapable of protecting the citizenry from these kinds of attacks. If the people do not protect themselves, there is no protection. All “gun-control” laws do is fight or obstruct the people from protecting themselves. This is why state leaders have an obligation to declare any and all federal gun-control laws to be null and void, and boldly declare to the people of their states that they will honor and protect the people’s right and duty to defend themselves.
Agreeing with this godly precedent and our Second Amendment, Declaration signer Richard Henry Lee stated, “To 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.” (Federal Farmer No. 18, January 25, 1788)
I believe today more than ever that our leaders should be advocating, endorsing and sponsoring the protection of our God-given right to life, liberty, and property.
Like John Kennedy I believe that, "Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."

BREAKING – Just Before Leaving Office, Obama Caught In $2.6 BILLION Scandal
Barack Obama’s legacy just got another massive, and rather expensive, blemish. American taxpayers are livid over this betrayal, but the mainstream media have been silent!
Dead retailers somehow redeemed more than $2 billion worth of food stamps. Well, if dead people can vote for Democrats, why can’t they go on ahead and spend our money too?
An audit by the United Sates Department of Agriculture (USDA) inspector general’s office discovered billions of dollars in improper National Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), better known as food stamps, were claimed by stores alleging they were run by children or dead people.
“We found that 3,394 authorized SNAP retailers (retailers) used Social Security Numbers (SSN) that matched SSNs of deceased people,” the inspector general’s office said. “Additionally, 193 retailers listed owners who were not at least 18 years of age. While FNS did have some controls to edit or verify SNAP retail owner information, these controls were not adequate to ensure owner information accuracy.”
The massive food stamp fraud occurred between October 2013 and June 2015, according to a Free Beacon report. The USDA inspector general identified 3,394 stores approved to accept food stamps, which were reported as owned by 1,819 people who were listed as dead in the Social Security “Death Master File.”
“These 3,394 retailers redeemed about $2.6 billion in SNAP benefits,” the inspector general’s report also revealed. The 193 businesses that reported child owners redeemed $41 million in food stamps.
The government report went on to state the obvious—without accurate retail owner store data, there is “little assurance” the store owners are actually who they say they are.
Identity fraud is a federal crime. Illegal distribution of food stamps is also a federal crime. Why would a legit store owner risk this kind of fraud? He or she wouldn’t, but an illegal immigrant or criminal bilking the taxpayers might think it is a grand scheme.
“This could leave the program open to abuse by disqualified individuals and others wishing to hide their identity for possible fraudulent purposes,” the report droned on, once again stating the obvious. Liberals try to convince us the government assistance programs our hard-earned money is used to fund are not ripe with corruption and do not create a state of generational dependency. Neither claim is true, folks.
The food stamps processed by the dead retail owners came from either the recipients themselves or someone they illegally traded or stole their food stamps with, such as drug dealers. The end result is the same either way. We are being stolen from, and poor children are likely going hungry in the process.
When welfare recipients sell their food stamps, they do so for pennies on the dollar. By the end of the month, any children in the home are left with empty bellies, but their parents have plenty of cigarettes, beer, and illegal drugs of their choice.
“If indeed some of these retailers are wholly owned by deceased persons or persons under the age of 18, this situation could leave FNS with little recourse other than disqualification in the event that adverse action needs to be taken against a particular retailer,” the inspector general added.
The weirdest and most frustrating part of this food stamp theft report is how little the federal government has done to prevent it. The U.S. does not have a system in place to scan its database to make sure the owners of the food stamps retail locations are at least 18 years old, but they do have an “edit check” to make sure the guy who owns the local supermarket is “at least five years old.”
About 46 million Americans are now on food stamps. This is a new record. The programs costs American taxpayers approximately $70 million per year.

Coalition letter against Convention of States
Coalition Letter in Support of our U.S. Constitution
The undersigned organizations and individuals stand in defense of our U.S. Constitution, and oppose all attempts under its Article V to convene a new constitutional convention ("Con Con").
State legislation is being pushed by undisclosed donors to force Congress to convene a Con Con supposedly "to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government." Such a convention would open the door to eliminate border security. It would inevitably seek to repeal the Second Amendment while inserting a new requirement for taxpayer-funded abortion. Article V expressly allows the adoption of amendments, plural, without limitation, so a Con Con would probably vastly expand federal power in many undesirable ways, such as expanding federal authority over churches and schools.
Tremendous irrevocable harm would result from a Con Con because it would allow numerous changes to our Constitution with the national media guiding the way.
Justice Antonin Scalia condemned the proposals for an Article V convention as a "horrible idea" months before he unexpectedly passed away. Phyllis Schlafly spoke out strongly against all Article V convention ideas, explaining that they would be "playing Russian Roulette with the Constitution." Chief Justice Warren Burger wrote against the mere suggestion of holding a Con Con. Second Amendment groups like the Gun Owners of America fully oppose it. The Founders themselves were very much against holding another constitutional convention, and many of the greatest American statesmen throughout history spoke out passionately against the idea.
In July 2016 in Cleveland, the Republican Party national platform committee rejected, nearly unanimously, an attempt to adopt a resolution calling for an Article V constitutional convention to enact a Balanced Budget Amendment.
Now the media want to repeal the Electoral College, which properly requires geographical diversity before a presidential candidate can win. Globalists and the media also want to repeal the Treaty Clause, which protects our Nation against harmful treaties with foreign powers by requiring the difficult-to-attain 2/3rds support in the Senate.
The Constitution has never been the problem, and our political leaders should be defending the Constitution rather than falsely pretending that it needs to be changed. Politicians and courts that do not abide by the Constitution today will not abide by a rewritten one tomorrow.
Promoters of the misnamed "Convention of States," which is merely a repackaged Article V "Con Con," fail to comply with state requirements for fiscal notes to disclose the economic impact of their legislation. Reducing federal power to secure our borders, as invited by the Convention of States legislation, would impose billions of dollars in new costs on states. States would be compelled to dole out more entitlements and spend far more combating crime as a result of reduced federal power to stop illegal immigration.
Our U.S. Constitution is the longest, most successful constitution in the history of mankind. It is not for sale, and it is not broken. It should not be "fixed" by secret billionaires having their own hidden agenda of globalism and open borders, views that they conceal with broad platitudes like "limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government."
Far too much is at stake to gamble away the future of our Constitution and our Nation on a runaway constitutional convention. Please speak out against any and all proposals to convene an Article V Convention, including the Convention of States resolutions, and please demand that the undisclosed donors pushing this "horrible idea" identify themselves and disclose their real agenda.
