Spreading the news one blog post at a time!

1. Yep, like that’s going to happen – “The Obama Administration Wants Gun Owners To Wear RFID Tracking Bracelets? : Attorney General Eric Holder says that gun owners in the United States could eventually be forced to wear RFID tracking bracelets. In fact, in recent testimony in front of Congress he gave the impression that this was something that the Obama administration has been thinking about for quite a long time. Holder seems to think that this would advance the cause of “gun safety” and that gun owners wouldn’t mind having an RFID microchip tracking their every movement.”

2. DHS study: North Korea capable of EMP attack on U.S. : “A long-suppressed report prepared by the Department of Homeland Security for the Defense Department concludes that North Korea could deliver on its threats to destroy the United States with a nuclear electromagnetic pulse attack.”

3. BLM fracking racket exposed! Armed siege and cattle theft from Bundy ranch really about fracking leases : “The Bureau of Land Management says its 200-man armed siege of the Cliven Bundy ranch in Nevada is all about protecting an “endangered tortoise.” But a Natural News investigation has found that BLM is actually in the business of raking in millions of dollars by leasing Nevada lands to energy companies that engage in fracking operations.”

4. Wake up America…They are taking everything away from us : Take a look at the map – you’ll notice the the federal government “owns and controls” over 60% of the lands in the western U.S. as well as the water.

5. Missouri Dems Introduce Alarming Gun Confiscation Bill Giving Law-Abiding Gun Owners 90 Days to Turn in Certain Firearms or Become Felons : “Democrats in Missouri introduced startling anti-gun legislation that would require gun owners to hand over their legally purchased so-called “assault weapons” to “the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction” within 90 days.”

6. The Tennessee Senate Has Backed a Bill to Reinstate the Electric Chair : “Lawmakers in the Volunteer State say the electric chair could be used to kill inmates on death row—there are currently 81—if their prisons are unable to secure the proper pharmaceuticals to perform lethal injections.”

7. Tennessee hemp law moves forward : “While the effort to bring medical marijuana to Tennessee failed this year, lawmakers this week legalized the growing of its cousin, hemp.”

    #1 Don’t think that’s going to happen, it sounds like the yellow star Hitler had the Jewish community of law abiding folks wear.

    • Hi Petticoat Prepper: My guess is that all too many gun owners would rather wear the yellow star…I mean bracelet, than resist.

      Charles Krauthammer has a column today on the ‘totalitarian impulse’ of the Democrats.

      Here: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/women-609321-new-oppose.html

      These are bad people. They are fundamentally anti-American. They control much of our government, and huge numbers of Americans think that is just fine with them. That means that huge numbers of Americans are anti-American, and it is going to be very difficult to reverse that trend.

    • Exile1981 says:

      A yellow star with tracking functions. How much harder would it have been for Anne Frank if the Nazis could drive past the house and detect the yellow stars with a scanner?

  2. Hunker-Down says:

    #1. Its time WE draw a line in the sand. Sharpen your pitchforks.
    I’m too agitated to say any more.

    #2. China is stockpiling gold. N. Korea is developing the ability to attack us from Cuba or its own shores. When China feels it has the US on the ropes financially, IMHO it will get its lackey N. Korea to attack us physically. TDL is setting us up and will move to Saudi Arabia before China implements its plan. Our military has known about these threats for years: why don’t we have a missile defense for attacks from the south or for the East coast?
    If our leadership wanted this country to be protected, defenses would be in place now.

    #3. BLM. This is another example of the thousands of topics the MSM should be airing over and over again to get the truth out to the common man, that is, if the welfare of the common man were on its radar. SO: the MSM is not for us, but against us.

    #4. Our national parks exist so that future generations may enjoy pristine areas of our country.
    What benefit is it to our nation for the government to keep those lands out of the hands of the private citizen?

    #5. Missouri dems are displaying their stupidity. Any 6th grader can interpret gun violence statistics and conclude that an unarmed assembly is at greater risk than the same assembly containing concealed carry individuals.

  3. I don’t see how #1 is feasible. Does the owner have a bracelet for each gun or one for all their guns and each new gun has to be added? Do I need one for my spouse in case I am away and she needs to use a gun? Do I have to wear the bracelet at all times so my guns are not able to be used when I am away from them (gun free zone)? Can a criminal follow someone wearing a bracelet as they leave a gun free zone, knowing they are likely unarmed, but own guns at home, abduct them, steal their bracelet and force them to give them their guns. Owners can’t defend themselves because they don’t have their bracelet anymore. If the bracelet alerts the authorities when the firearm moves too far away from the bracelet, does the bracelet then need to be stored near the firearm? That kinda makes the safety aspect of the bracelet useless if it is stored with or near the firearm. Yet again, another half assed gov’t ‘solution’ that would create more problems than it solves.

    • Tactical G-Ma says:

      Perrin
      I think #1- the bracelet- would be ideal for LEOs. That way in a scuffle, if disarmed, their guns wouldn’t work. Same with guards.

      • riverrider says:

        being the criminal mastermind, i would build a jammer and go about my crooked way in relative safety.

  4. Rider of Rohan says:

    #1-I’m not wearing any bracelet, period. Never have liked them, never will. As for Holder, he should be the one wearing some bracelets.

    #3. The Federal Gov’t is out of control. I haven’t made my mind up about Bundy, but these tactics go back to the Ruby Ridge siege. Siccing dogs on pregnant women, tasering people for no good reason, and throwing 55+ yr. old cancer patients on the ground won’t earn these BLM officers any friends, except on the far Left. Gov’t agents go all thug on people, then wonder why they are hated. No few cows warrant this type of response from the BLM.

    #5. I’m surprised that the commie Democrats in Missouri played their hand so quickly. The Mo. Legislature is likely to have less Democrats as a result, a good thing.

    • riverrider says:

      rider, the doj and tdl are asking ccongress for billions to “enhance” insta-check system and hire more atf and fbi dedicated to nics checks even tho congress defeated expansion of the background checks.

    • worrisome says:

      Rofl #2. Right there with ya

    • Rider of Rohan says:

      riverrider and worrisome, I saw a story last week where AT-F agents are scanning and putting in a database all Form 4473s at each gunshop they visit on their yearly audits. In other words, they are creating de facto gun registration lists in clear violation of the law. That’s why they want to do away with private sales. Those are the only ones they can’t register.

      • riverrider says:

        heard that too. my ffl says he hasn’t had that occur yet during their visits. yet….things are getting tight in nevada. saw a vid of another rancher speaking to a county board about the bundy thing. “they(blm) are going to fire another shot heard round the world one day soon….we’ll fire all the rest.”.. loud applause from the crowd. too many folks, somebody’s gonna make a mistake, there will be no turning back. i hope it holds off another week til i make a sam’s run,lol. seriously tho, getting close to april 19th. bad juju.

  5. I don’t think the fracking leases are the issue, that would make $ & sense, and this administration only cares about ideology, they have done nothing to expand oil production, and everything to halt it. I do know that they are harassing this rancher for other darker reasons, control being the top one, limiting the food supply is another. Pointless environmental regulations with only one purpose, to weaken and diminish this country, to make us completely dependent on a Federal system to care for us.

    the Dem. bill in Mo will go no where, too much a stake this year election wise, but they will never stop poking, trying to find a weakness to exploit.
    Hold and the injustice department, want to spend a billion on wit-less science, follow the money, I say it goes to political cronies that did not make out in the “green” stimulus pork, now their turn to get money for nothing.
    Tenn., I understand bring back something like the electric chair, since ammo is now getting expensive, seriously, forget that cr@p and use a firing squad, cheap and effective.

    Anything about North Korea is credible, since it is the strangest country in the world. anything is possible.

  6. Eric Holder: Obammy’s biggest pork chop is certainly welcome to try to get a bracelet on me.

  7. #6 — If it passes, maybe they can hold a lottery to see who gets to “throw the switch”.

  8. mom of three says:

    Sigh:( What are we coming to ?

  9. Exile1981 says:

    #1 – First off yes this is a form of registration but it’s much worse than that. The bracelet would be linked to your guns and only the person wearing the bracelet could fire that firearm. So lets say you want to take your child out to teach them to shoot they couldn’t use your gun because the bracelet wouldn’t sync with the gun.

    Secondly if an incident were to happen the patriots would not be able to arm up. Guns could not be donated to the militia as they would be useless to them with out the bracelet. If you had say 10 guns and wanted to lend say 8 to your associated then they could not use them either.

  10. Well I suppose its a good thing none of us are gun owners…. all those boating accidents and all. But sure I could see this happening after he shoves one up his …..

  11. just another way to find you and your guns to take away.

    Rules for Combat

    Might find a smile or two for the weekend in these

    Ted Cruz: Congress Should Impeach Eric Holder If He Takes No Action on IRS Targeting Scandal
    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/04/10/Ted-Cruz-Congress-Should-Impeach-Eric-Holder-If-He-Takes-No-Action-on-IRS-Targeting-Scandal
    Sic ‘em Ted! Get that Pork Chop!

  13. BRACELETS!
    WE DON’T NEED NO STINKING BRACELETS!
    (The treasure of Sierra Madre )

    Interesting to note that both the Chinese and Russian military have published reports that within the next 10-15 years, when the U.S. has weakened enough, they will defeat us in a nuclear war. Then split up what is left of North America into a bunch of small countries.

    Meanwhile we’ve spent how much $$$$$ to protect a turtle from a bunch of cows?………I need another drink

    • Tactical G-Ma says:

      Badges? Badges?
      What’s the sense in nuking us when in 5years they can have us cheap! Comrade. Don’tspitonya!

  14. Texanadian says:

    With regards to #3. The “evil” oil companies do not want to control thousands of acres. Normally they will lease a 5 acre parcel to drill and produce the well. When they are done they move off and usually lease a half acre or so for the well head unless they tie right into an existing pipeline. They pay good money to the landholder for the lease while it is being used. I have done many a job where the audience has been a herd of cattle as well as having deer, bear and other critters walk through the location.

    An article I read indicated it was housing and commercial developers who want to build on the land and take it out of permanent graze.

  15. #4 – By my reading of the Constitution of Nevada, Bundy is wrong. http://www.leg.state.nv.us/const/nvconst.html See Ordinance section, “Third” part. Like it or not, the United States, not the State of Nevada, owns the land and Bundy owes the BLM the fees for decades of grazing his cattle there for free. I hope the “boots on the ground”, the OathKeepers, III’ers, and the Alex Jones listeners, down there backing Bundy on this have thought it through carefully. Seems to me they could easily be accused of not recognizing the Constitution of Nevada as lawful/valid, which is probably exactly what they don’t want.

    • Northernwolf says:

      You must not have heard Bundy was paying fees for grazing to the state long before the BLM was around and what they are doing is trying to charge him for what he already paid.

    • riverrider says:

      at issue is the govt’s RIGHT to “own” the land it never paid for and/or deny taxpayers use thereof. i say they don’t have that right.

      • Did you gentlemen read the Nevada Constitution?

        “That the people inhabiting said territory do agree and declare, that they forever disclaim all right and title to the unappropriated public lands lying within said territory, and that the same shall be and remain at the sole and entire disposition of the United States”.

        They relinquished “unappropriated lands” to the “United States” when the joined the Union. Why? No idea, but that the Federal Gov’t owns it now, and makes rules as it wishes, seems indisputable – unless someone can show the land in question was appropriated prior to Nevada joining the US?

  16. #1 — Holder, Obummer, Feinstein, etc. can firmly place chip where sun doesn’t shine.

    #3 — Give me a break on the tortoises, please, dear gov’t. You pulled that crap before w/enduro races, but all the while you were in cahoots with land developers and paying a bounty on each “protected” tortoise brought in.

  17. I think ya’ll fail to appreciate how tasty turtle soup really is.

  18. I also think ya’ll fail to appreciate the usefulness of bracelets. The bracelets in question prevent the firearm from shooting if the firearm is not within 12 inches of the registered user. The purpose is to prevent useless violence.

    I suggest that police officers be mandated to wear bracelets–it’s just that the bracelets would be programmed to prevent the cops from shooting suspects who are already in handcuffs. Think of all the lives that could be saved. Think of the police brutality that could be stopped. This could usher in a new era where the populace is no longer afraid of the militarized police force.

    • Hunker-Down says:

      I think you just gave Holder a headache!

    • Extrapolating on your idea I think the bracelets should, by law, be affixed to each and every politician and programmed to deliver 20,000 volts every time they lie.

  19. ozhillbilly says:

    Being a Missouri resident and believing I have a finger on the pulse of the Missouri State Legislature, I believe House Bill 545 will not pass. I googled the bill and read it. It’s only three pages long and is an easy predictable read. If you’ve read one before this one is probably exactly like it. It doesn’t mean we cannot drop our guard. We must remain vigilant on this stuff.

  20. Northernwolf says:

    Fracking is just one of the things I have heard another is the land could be for solar panels for elec. as far as the cattle rancher, in the past it was because of there grazing rights on public land that mustangs are to this day being rounded up and the public denied access to view them being sent to slaughter.
    And to my understanding under our Consitition the fed gov can not legally own land,and this land is Nevada state land so a double law breaking.so where is the Governer, stand up and kick these people out of your state!
    And agenda 21 another thought

  21. I think we are getting close to the last box.

  22. riverrider says:

    you can bet harry reid is involved. did i read correctly that his son is cheif of blm? either way reid is up to his ugly neck in shady land deals in nevada.

    • riverrider says:

      the blm head is not his “son” per se but his former senior adviser. reid wants to put a solar farm up outside las vegas but couldn’t find cheap land. wanna bet this is it? i bet they’ll claim the solar farm is good for the turtles, all that shade,lol.

  23. Northernwolf says:

    A follow up to my past comment on the federal Gov can’t own land I was partly right article 1 section 8 clause 17 states they can only own or buy land for Forts docks and the like etc. and what they are doing right now is illeagal

  24. Donna in MN says:

    This gov’t is so incompetent they killed that desert tortise in mass before on purpose. They also had a rhyme diddy among themselves describing how they are driving cattlemen out of business. This is the perfect example of the Feds taking tyranic rule over the people to make them poor and bankrupt.

    If I were the association of cattle ranchers, I would stir up the whole country against this, that the government is trying to ban beef to eat and for the people rise up to protest.

    Next thing the fed does will be to ban you from walking on the ground of fed and state land because you are disturbing wildlife and stepping on ants. (of course they will kill wildlife themselves to make it an endangered species like they did with the desert tortise) Hunting on that land will be banned, and if you dare crunch one blade of grass, they will hunt you down with snippers and police.

    If the economy doesn’t collapse our country, this nation sure will with this type of tyrany.

    BLM is pulling out
    http://abcnews.go.com/US/nevada-cattle-rancher-wins-range-war-federal-government/story?id=23302610

    They’ll probably go after him with eminent domain next.
