Backlash to Obama officials squelching political speech

September 29, 2008

Barack Obama’s commisars in Missiouri went overboard when they threatened to use government power to suppress views opposing his stated proposals. As reported by World Net Daily several Missiouri officials, St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill” were all a part of this blunt attempt at stiffiling free speech.

This is yet another example of why a completely new political party is so desperatly needed if this nation is to survive.

A BIG Hat tip to Texas Fred! For finding this story! :D

Political Quiz’s

September 28, 2008

Political Quiz’s are something that I mostly just laugh about. They most often are simply polls that are even more twisted than actual polls are. Two stand out though from the usual crowd. This one deals with, you guessed it, Barack Obama!

The other would be The World’s smallest political quiz.

Try taking both, and you might be a bit supprised at what you learn!

U.S. Representative Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.)

September 28, 2008

This week’s Outrage comes to us courtesy of U.S. Representative Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) who recently lashed out at Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin (R) while trying to muster support for anti-gun Presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Hastings has a well-deserved reputation for opening his mouth and speaking his mind.  But this week, when he opened his mouth, he put his foot into it.  Way into it.

America’s Largest and Most Radical Hunting-Ban Group Endorses Barack Obama
Friday, September 26, 2008
America’s Largest and Most Radical Hunting-Ban Group Endorses Barack Obama–It’s Just One More Association With Radicals That He Can’t Run From: While Barack Obama lies to America’s gun owners and hunters about his longstanding public record in support of legislation stripping Americans of essential liberties, his so-called friends are thwarting his campaign of deception. The Humane Society Legislative Fund, the political arm of the radical Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), is the most recent to foil Obama’s best laid plans after giving him the organization’s unequivocal endorsement. This should be a resounding wake-up call to America’s millions of hunters.

Wayne Pacelle, President of HSUS has made no secret of his organization’s desire to ban all hunting. Hunters would be well advised to keep in mind the following quotes from Pacelle that expose the true agenda of HSUS:

“If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would.” – as quoted by the Associated Press in Impassioned Agitator, December 30, 1991

“Our goal is to get sport hunting in the same category as cock fighting and dog fighting. Our opponents say hunting is a tradition. We say traditions can change.” – Bozeman Daily Chronicle, October 8, 1991

Pacelle knows that he has a proven friend in Obama after his support of Senator Ted Kennedy’s legislation that would have banned virtually all rifle ammunition used by America’s hunters. If successful, the legislation would have ended the vast majority of all hunting – a fact not lost on HSUS.

In Congress and state legislatures and city councils around the country, HSUS lobbies to defeat every measure that expands hunting opportunities for the country’s sportsmen. It says it opposes only the most “barbaric and inhumane” hunting practices. What it doesn’t say publicly is that HSUS believes that all sport hunting is “barbaric and inhumane.”

There’s never been a hunting ban or restriction that HSUS hasn’t actively supported. It routinely lobbies to:

- Prohibit the use of traditional lead bullets and shot for all hunting;

- Prohibit urban and suburban archery deer hunting programs;

- Prohibit bear hunting in a number of states including New Jersey, Colorado and Alaska;

- Replace traditional hunting as a wildlife management tool, with expensive and unproven contraception programs;

- Retain Sunday hunting bans in states like Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia;

- Ban the hunting of doves, the most widely hunted game bird in America; and

- Ensure that emotion, not science, dictates wildlife management practices

In addition to its anti-hunting efforts in the public policy realm, HSUS uses its enormous financial resources to regularly file lawsuits to stop hunting and the scientific wildlife management practices that recognize hunting as an essential tool. A recent example of this came when HSUS filed lawsuits that successfully closed millions of acres of wildlife refuges to hunting. This is despite the fact that Congress has determined that hunting is one of the traditional activities that should specifically be encouraged in refuges.

HSUS is also the group most responsible for preventing the removal of the Rocky Mountain gray wolf from the endangered species list despite the finding by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that wolf populations have exceeded original delisting goals by more than 400%. Delisting would have allowed states to implement hunting to control the now healthy and sustainable wolf populations. The overpopulated and unmanaged wolves are taking an unacceptably high toll on game populations, such as elk and moose. This significantly reduces hunting opportunities and endangers the long-term viability of these species. HSUS will stop management through hunting at all costs. It’s more evidence that the group could not care less about the consequences of its actions on wildlife, as long as Americans are prohibited from hunting.

In addition to all of this, Pacelle’s endorsement of Obama is proof positive that the anti-hunting, anti-gun front group American Hunting and Shooting Association (AHSA) is no friend to the country’s sportsmen. AHSA had already endorsed Obama. HSUS and AHSA are now working hand-in-hand to elect the most anti-freedom presidential ticket in the country’s history.

Sportsmen must now ask themselves what will happen to America’s proud hunting heritage with an Obama administration that is beholden to radical groups like HSUS. We know from his own words that Wayne Pacelle’s goal is to end all hunting, so the answer should be self-evident.

Factcheck And Brady Campaign Share Same Sugar Daddy-

September 28, 2008

source

Factcheck And Brady Campaign Share Same Sugar Daddy — FactCheck and Brady Campaign in Bed with Annenberg Foundation: FactCheck supposedly exists to look beyond a politician’s claims. Ironically, in its analysis of NRA materials on Barack Obama, these so-called “FactCheckers” use the election year campaign rhetoric of a presidential candidate and a verbal claim by one of the most zealous gun control supporters in Congress to refute facts compiled by NRA’s research of vote records and review of legislative language.

Obama Campaign Threatens Legal Action Over NRA Ads-

September 28, 2008

Campaign and DNC Launch Assault On First Amendment!


Earlier this week, NRA-PVF released a series of radio and television spots to educate gun owners and sportsmen about Barack Obama’s longstanding anti-gun record.  In response to the NRA-PVF ads, a clearly panicked Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) are doing everything they can to hide Obama’s real record by mounting a coordinated assault on the First Amendment.

They have gone to desperate and outrageous lengths to try to silence your NRA by bullying media outlets with threats of lawsuits if they run NRA-PVF’s ads.  They have sent intimidating cease and desist letters to cable operators and television stations, threatening their FCC licenses if they run the ads.

NRA stands behind the accuracy of these ads, and NRA attorneys have responded to the Obama campaign’s despicable and abusive attempt to trample on the First Amendment by sending a thorough rebuttal to station managers. This rebuttal clearly and conclusively refutes the Obama campaign’s fallacious claims that the ads are inaccurate. For more information, and to see the letter, please click here.

To learn the truth about Barack Obama’s anti-gun record, please visit www.GunBanObama.com. This website is loaded with features and information that you, as a gun owner, need to know. This is a must-see website that you will want to pass along to anyone you know who loves freedom and supports the Second Amendment. While you’re there, don’t forget to take the “OMatch,” compatibility quiz to see if you and Barack are a match.

CAPITAL GAINS TAX

OBAMA 28% on profit from ALL home sales.  (How does this affect you? If you sell your home and make a profit, you will pay 28% of your gain on taxes. If you are heading toward retirement and would like to down-size your home or move into a retirement community, 28% of the money you make from your home will go to taxes. This proposal will adversely affect the elderly who are counting on the income from their homes as part of their retirement income.)

DIVIDEND TAX

MCCAIN

15% (no change)

OBAMA

39.6% – (How will this affect you? If you have any money invested in stock market, IRA, mutual funds, college funds, life insurance, retirement accounts, or anything that pays or reinvests dividends, you will now be paying nearly 40% of the money earned on taxes if Obama becomes president. The experts predict that ‘Higher tax rates on dividends and capital gains would crash the stock market, yet do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.’)

OBAMA Restore the inheritance tax

Many families have lost businesses, farms, ranches, and homes that have been in their families for generations because they could not afford the inheritance tax. Those willing their assets to loved ones will only lose them to these taxes.

NEW TAXES PROPOSED BY OBAMA

New government taxes proposed on homes that are more than 2400 square feet.  New gasoline taxes (as if gas weren’t high enough already) New taxes on natural resources consumption (heating gas, water, electricity)  New taxes on retirement accounts, and last but not least….New taxes to pay for socialized medicine so we can receive the same level of medical care as other third-world countries!!!

The National Rifle Association gets it right…for once!

September 20, 2008

The National Rifle Association gets it right…for once! Look folks, I am a Life Member that has not donated a penny to them in years. Why? Because they sell out Gun Owners seemingly at every opportunity, that is why! The list is long… More so, for at least the least twenty years or so, the NRA has been a fund collecting organization more than anything else. Now, don’t get me wrong, but if you give money that you work your behind off for, then that organization should at least defend what you believe in! They might as well be televangelists!

Yes I know, sometimes compromise is warranted. But never for ones base values, never. I happen to believe that the Constitution of the United States of America  immense value, and that does include the “Bill of Rights.” Some say that it is a document written by “Old White Men.” Meaning that it, and it’s idea’s are outdated,m and worthless. I believe just the opposite. I believe that the “FOUNDERS” were brilliant men and that their ideas spread across time for the benefit of all mankind.

Those beliefs are being challenged by a politician. He is an abomination of the American political system, period. The National Rifle Association has stepped up to the plate and smacked a home run on this one. Go to

http://www.gunbanobama.com/

Perhaps the NRA has seen the light? One can only wonder I suppose. The Constitution says that GOD given rights, will only be suspended to an individual for felonious conduct, or serious mental disability. So why I ask, does the NRA support such things as the Brady Bill, The Lautenberg Act (s), and the United States Government attacking it’s own citizens at Waco Texas, and Ruby Ridge for example?
