52 Percent of Americans Say Sandy Hook Is Being Exploited for Political Gain : “As gun rights and gun control are debated in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting, a majority of Americans say elected officials are “exploiting” the tragedy. The new Reason-Rupe poll finds 52 percent of Americans believe that elected officials are exploiting the tragedy for political gain.”

Obama Is Not King : “Watching President Obama’s inaugural, I was confused. It looked like a new king was being crowned. Thousands cheered, like subjects worshipping nobility. At a time when America faces unsustainable debt and terrible economic troubles, why such pomp?”

Rush To Safety: Americans Buy Nearly Half a Billion Dollars Of Gold and Silver In January : “According to the mint, investors purchased nearly half a billion dollars in gold and silver in the last 30 days. There was, in fact, so much money shifting into physical precious metals in January that the mint was actually forced to cease operations because they couldn’t meet demand.”

When Politicians Demand Gun Control, Remember Athens, TN & The Founders : “Many are asking the question “Why should we allow guns?” Those who want gun control at the levels that Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has put forth have the idea that citizens do not need certain types of weapons. However, those same people will be very quick to say that our government will never turn on the very people they intend on keeping from acquiring these arms. Just by placing the “assault weapons ban” bill on the record, Senator Feinstein has violated the Oath of her office, and as such, has committed an act of treason.”

    We are not surprised at them using a tragedy to put others in bondage. What should have been a time to grieve has turned into a circus.
    May 2013 well seems someone wants to put a date on this mess and when it will finally put the skids to us all.

  2. Annie Nonymous says:

    I’m surprised they’re not doing the Pledge in Mandarin… of course, sans the gratitude to God. Its the Obamist Chimerican way… Of Course, Obama is “B A Mao” spelled sideways…

  3. Mystery Guest says:

    Forgot to mention that the farm news this morning that Hard Red Winter Wheat crop may be in trouble from lack of moisture. But they indicated that as of now it is going pretty well. So figure we need to look for trouble in that area also.

  4. A Presidental inaugration should have some pomp. We are a prideful nation and should be proud even if we don’t care for the person in the office. However, I believe it should have been modest and he should have said so. Millions, heck maybe a billion should not be spent on a White House Party when so many are suffering.

    Agggggg…..If you read the real story about the Pledge read in Arabic….They said the pledge in many different languages to celebrate diversity! We have been at war with some or most of the nations at one point or another. Why should Arabic cause such a ruckus?
    Let us not forget that we are a Nation of Immigrants. A melting pot of misfits, poor families that wanted a better life, who pushed out the Natives that were here, to share this continent. Some of them spoke/speak Arabic.
    The Americans of Arab descent that are here are not to blame for our problems. They are living in the same situation that the rest of us are.
    My daughter and I are learning or will be learning Spanish, Italian, French, Arabic, German, and Chinese.
    So we can’t say the pledge in an other language that English? How about Navajo? Just so long the flag is honored, understood and the words said with pride, why not?

    Sandy Hook IS being exploited. Makes me sick that the gun agenda is running on the exhaust fumes of childrens funeral vehicles and our schools are STILL not safe. Millions of children sitting in target rich gun free zones right now.

    This all makes me so sad, angry and frustrated. I think I will go eat a box of Thin Mints, calm down and have a nap.

    • Well said Mama. As far as I’m concerned, others of like minds can speak any language, have any beliefs or be unbelievers, have any sexual preference or skin color.

      We all face then same problems.

    • It really irks me that the major argument for the gun control side is when somone speaks against gun control they make it out that they want more children to die, if we just pass gun control no more children will die. There argument has not logic and is just running on semntiment , that was the only reason they had Rep. Giffords speak yesterday. But why should I actually think that anyone from the govt. would actually use logic to try to solve anything. Stupid Me!!!

      • RattleHawk says:

        What I find interesting about Gabby Giffords, is she was a strong supporter of gun rights, until SHE got shot.

        Kind of hypocritical, like it was all right for all the other people who were hurt or killed by gun violence, until it happened to her.

        • RattleHawk,

          “gun violence” I’ve never held a violent gun or a violent hammer for that matter, but I’ve known some violent people…

          • I don’t know MD I grew up shooting one and can testify that a Winchester model 97 will certainly bite the hand that feeds it until you learn how to hold it when you pump the slide….lol.

        • gov’t probably had her shot to change her mind !

      • AMEN,SIR!!!!

      • George,
        I am so frustrated with the whole direction this has gone. Everytime someone says the words “gun control”, or says the words “AR” or” high capacity” I stop them immediately.
        I ask politely what THEY have done RIGHT NOW to secure our schools? When they give me the stupid blank look, I tell them to stand in front of the school with all their anti gun friends, unarmed everyday until each and every criminal and insane person has been disarmed.
        Until then, they need to shut the hell up and get out of my face.
        What happened to Rep. Giffords was terrible. If she beleives that guns casued her wounds, she really is brain damaged. I didn’t watch it, now I am glad I didn’t.

      Thank you for putting my thoughts into words that make sense Mama J.

    I think the Sandy Hook shooting is just one big white wash. Only if there was someone to come out and say I can’t live this lie anymore and tell what really happpened. Obama king LMAO. Loard knows I got a pretty good chunk of silver hid back. I think it is a very wise investment. I cant affored gold but what are you gonna buy with and ounce of gold in a SHTF 6 cows. May 2013 end of the road? I hope so this country has gone to far to turn back we need a restart. Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic. I think the best way to bond with a culture in another country is to live like that culture. SPEAK ENGLISH! I get so tired of hearing arab-american, african-american, spanish-american when you come to America, America comes first. american-arab, american-african see how much better that sounds just like the American-Indian that I don’t know why because he was here first. As far as the camden bow murder this site aint telling the whole truth those guys were gay lovers he was going to poke him to death one way or another.

    • Texanadian says:

      So many of the comments are about the government not being prepared to look after people with high debt. How the heck did they get in debt… poor choices. It is not the governments role, meaning my money, to bail out individuals or corporations. That mentality is going to destroy the country and unfortunately it is way too prominant.

  6. riverrider says:

    one senator said in the hearing yesterday that universal background checks would keep the guns out of the criminals hands. let that sink in a minute……um, they’re getting guns NOW without a check. um, they’re importing thousands of TONS of drugs. surely they could toss in a gun or twenty. they’re stealing them NOW. um, its illegal to kill somebody NOW. the only thing i heard all day that made any sense was better reporting of mentally ill to the instacheck system, but that scares me a little too. who gets to say who is ill?what is ill? can somebody declare me ill for wanting to buy a gun? or storing food? they already declared me a potential terrorist.

    • Did you notice when Wayne Lapierre tried to speak up to that exact point that someone started banging a gavel and yelling out of order and cut him off. Just like the libatards to not let both sides to speak their point.

    • And if criminals can’t get one on their own I hear the ATF has many programs that hand them out to them.

    • SurvivorDan says:

      You got some kinda bunker or fortified retreat rr? Ever carry more than one weapon? Ever curse the Feds? Got two or more of everything? Distrust the mainstream media? Into self-reliance?
      Well all of that ain’t ‘normal’. I suggest you come quietly.

    • Takes a terrorist to know one! SCRIPTED B.S. IS ALL THEY SPEAK!!
      The FEDS and the PUPPETMASTERS (Elitists) ARE the danged terrorists! this crap makes me wanna puke in their faces !

  7. riverrider says:

    oh yeah, remember a few days ago i said they need another incedent to seal the gunban deal? alabama anyone?

    • Backwoods Prepper says:

      I cant believe one of them bunker building survivalist that stands for the second amendment would go onto a school bus and kill the driver and take a kid. See even all them gun loving survivalist preppers are violent. That’s the way I see it going.

      • Texanadian says:

        They are calling a tornado shelter, that many people have, a bunker. Whatever sells papers.

      • Now we know what they’re gonna do with that 40,000,000 rounds of hollowpoint, .40 cal. rounds and the 7,000 full assault weapons they ordered ,and dont allow us to own! Preppers ,Survivalists, and true american Patriots BEWARE!!!

    • Yeah, my fiance and I had that conversatoin… sounds staged and contrived with it’s convienent timing. And another question… was it a bunker or a “bunker” (as in storm shelter)?

      • Backwoods Prepper says:

        On Wednesday, a source close to the investigation identified the suspected gunman to NBC News as Jimmy Lee Dykes, 65, and said that he was a loner and survivalist who “does not trust the government” and holds “anti-American views.”People in Midland City said that they had seen the suspect tirelessly digging up his own yard, even his driveway, sometimes in the middle of the night — apparently building what one man in the neighborhood described as a bomb shelter fortified by sand. It don’t sound like the MSM is making it a tornado shelter does it. So what do you think the sheeple will think it is.

        • “does not trust the government”

          I cant imagine why **snicker**

        • SurvivorDan says:

          Just remember the stories about Weaver and Ruby Ridge spun by the gov’t media. Real story came out with Weaver’s criminal trial (exonerated) and civil trial (won a trunk full of cash).
          But folks still think the original fabrication is the truth. Ask someone? The lingering ‘truth’ once spun by the media is how most people remember the events. So mad, I could just spit!

        • I don`t trust the goverment and the white house is full of people who hold anti american views.And it is also full of radical commie scum. Why does`t nbc cover the white house and there tempory occupants?

    • If folks want to keep up with the ongoing Alabama story I dug this page up.

      And then there’s this:

      Kaufman County Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse was shot dead outside the courthouse Thursday
      He was working on a case against the Aryan Brotherhood.

  9. Another Sandy Hook – Aurora Coincidence:

    I am confident that most people have read George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984”. I view it as dystopian, Barry and his dominatrix, Valerie Jarrett, probably consider it as utopian. Anyhow, in this prophetic essay, Orwell projects a London dominated by Big Brother and his Ingsoc (English Socialism) regime that is constantly at war with either Eurasia or Eastasia, its inhabitants living in fear of the Thought Police; their children being taught in the government run schools to spy on their own families and report any suspicious activity. I am not going to go into a full review of the book and its meaning. If you haven’t already read the book, do so. If you have read it, read it again. In chapter five the inhabitants are preparing for “Hate Week” and the periodic bombings, blamed on the enemy of the moment but actually carried out by Big Brothers own military, have grown more frequent. I quote from the novel, ”As though to harmonize with the general mood, the rocket bombs had been killing larger numbers of people than usual. One fell on a crowded film theater in Stepney, burying several hundred victims among the ruins. The whole population of the neighborhood turned out for a long, trailing funeral which was in effect an indignation meeting. Another bomb fell on a piece of waste ground which was used as a playground, and several dozen children were blown to pieces. There were further angry demonstrations, Goldstein was burned effigy..” As Hillary recently said, ”What does it matter?”. Well, here we have a text warning against the evils of totalitarian rule outlining two specific attacks by those in power on their own citizens and “coincidentally”, we have two almost identical attacks happen in real life. What are the odds? Don’t believe me? Read the book.

    • SurvivorDan says:

      No one wants to believe that their government could be so evil. That’s how they get away with murderous staged events. The incredulity of it all.
      Couldn’t possibly be true and anyone who thinks so is a nut.

      Even Glenn Beck says that anyone who thinks the government would stage/allow an atrocity like Sandy Hook is certifiable. Maybe so, but I say that Glenn Beck is just another tool of the great powers that rule here. Join his group. Sign up. Get on the list of preppers and survivalists. Glenn swears that no one will get your information. Really? Well that’s reassuring……..

    • WHO WOULDA THOUGHT!! Orwell musta know an Illuminatti member to get such credible INSIDE INFO!!

      • No, they used the events in 1984 to stage their attacks; as a sick joke. Sort of like flying two planes into a building at 9:11:01 on 9/11/01. Orwell was simply used, as are we all.

    Yup, dire predictions for the economy. Heard early on ABC News this morning that 1/3 of US households hold ‘zero’ savings account – they live literally paycheck to paycheck. One rainy day event from disaster – not good.

    Immigration reform – some comments. Are removing the US aerostat border stations part of this effort ? These ballons have been used for some decades to keep an eye out on the horizon for illegal air activities – that is supposed to be removed as of March 2013. I wonder how the immigrants (who payed in past or who are paying $$$ and jumping through all kinds of hoops to become a citizen LEGALLY) are feeling right now. So much for following the law . . .

    • My daughter-in-law is one those who went the legal route and she makes no bones about saying all the illegals should be sent back and forced to take the legal path.

  12. Texanadian says:

    So you think you’re a prepper? These folks are preppers, albeit they weren’t very well prepared. 60years in the wilderness.

    • Backwoods Prepper says:

      I read this couple days ago what gets me is the outside contact is what killed them new virusus that they wern’t immune to. goes to show you what is the flu to us could be a pandimic to someone with no immune system accustomed to it.

    • Patriot Dave says:

      If you have to escape persecution, you usually have to leave most of your possessions and “preps” behind. Many flee with nothing but the clothes they are wearing. It has happened, and continues to happen in many places in the world. Right now, Egypt, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Turkey to name a few. Even if you can carry 100 lbs on your back, how much would you have to abandon?

  13. riverrider says:

    no mention in msm of the fbi raid on the (d)senators office, only a denial in one paper of indulging with an underage hooker in dominique. nor the sandy hook testimony of a chinese immigrant that rocked the house with his rebutle of the gun ban proposals. nor the hassan case(ny). nor the testimony today of a women in the congressional hearing that said she needed thirty rounds to keep her kids safe. the senators reaction was dismissive, like she was some hysterical housewife that can’t be taken seriously. grrrr.

  14. Patriot Dave says:

    The Athens TN story is on utube. I saw it a few years ago or so. It should be in every history class. It also demonstrates that it can and has happened in the good ol US of A.
    A very recent example just happened this week in Howell County, Missouri. The local sheriff executed a court order to seize 15-18 tons of cheese from raw milk. I don’t have link handy but it should be easy to find. You can actually watch the sheriff violate his oath. Then refuse to answer a question whether he would violate it in the future to seize guns. Always the usual response: “I’m just doing my Job”.

  15. I hate folks like this. They do something then they complain when they get called for it. Maybe the so called pastor should have thought about the actions before she did it.

  16. MSNBC Criticized For Editing Of Newtown Gun Hearing

    MSNBC invited viewers Wednesday to draw their own conclusions about whether the parent of a Connecticut school shooting victim was heckled at a legislative hearing but didn’t address criticism that it aired a deceptively edited video of the event.

    The NBC-owned cable news network found itself under attack for its editing practices less than a year after three employees of NBC or an NBC-owned station lost their jobs over the editing of a 911 call in the Trayvon Martin case.

    For the full story…

  17. Im not sure if someone has posted this yet but just in case several states have bills being introduced that say the inforcment of federal gun laws is illegal

  18. wicked props says:

    just a note on sinister frankenstiens “bill of commie goodness”
    The problem on page 13: All semi-autos are outlawed, not just some.

    Pro-rights and anti-rights attention has been focused on the tremendous list of guns that would be banned under Feinstein’s bill, which takes up a significant portion of the 122 pages of this proposal.

    Here’s the problem none of the “news” reports have spotted:

    The list of guns doesn’t matter.
    Magazine size doesn’t matter.
    If the semi-auto firearm has anything to grip it by, it is banned.
    It’s very clever actually.

    According to the bill, any semiautomatic firearm that uses a magazine — handgun, rifle or shotgun — equipped with a “pistol grip,” would be banned. That sounds like a limitation, but it is not.

    A pistol grip (on page 2) is defined (on page 13) as “a grip, a thumb-hole stock, or any other characteristic that can function as a grip.” In other words, the gun list does not matter. It is a smokescreen designed to distract people from the true meaning of the bill. And it has done a magnificent job. It worked!

    Any semi-automatic firearm that exists, with anything on it you can grip, is banned. (There is a grandfather clause for old stuff.)

    The list is meaningless tripe. It is camouflage for the real purpose of the bill. When the president said he is not going to take away your guns, well, Feinstein’s bill puts the lie to that.

    I found this to be quite scary
