Just a reminder: Brock's fall PatCom is coming up Oct 4-7 and if you are able to make it you should try to do so, and meet some great Patriots.
III Arms will have 4 1911s and one AR present, prototypes for our production run for folks to evaluate.
We hope to be at the INDY1500 the week after Brock's place to display the prototypes for the folks who attend that very popular show. Can't promise about that one, tho, still not sure if we can get table space this close to the date.
Here's the link to Brock's place. His lovely daughter Dixie will have her picture taken with the III Arms pistols during the event!
Tonight Obama will be accepting the Democratic Party’s nomination. Tonight or tomorrow the DNC will be sending notifications that they certify Obama as their candidate to the Secretaries of State for all 50 states. These notifications will either explicitly state that Obama is constitutionally eligible to serve as president, or they will imply it. Either way, the certifications will be fraudulent.
Earlier this week, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals denied Liberty Legal Foundation’s emergency motion to prohibit the DNC from sending those fraudulent notifications. The 9th Circuit’s order denying our motion was one sentence. It essentially said, we’re denying your motion because we can. You can see the order on our website.
The 9th Circuit’s one-sentence denial of our motion is, in my mind, the definitive proof that America’s judicial system has completely failed. For a year Liberty Legal Foundation has been presenting courts with an opportunity to explain why Supreme Court precedent should be ignored. Rather than answer that question, the courts have avoided the question. The 9th Circuit’s denial cites a single case. That case stands for the principle that the 9th Circuit doesn’t have to grant our motion unless it wants to do so. Oh, it has the authority, but it isn’t required to grant our motion.
Understand what I just said. The 9th Circuit didn’t explain WHY it chose to deny our motion. It didn’t even offer an excuse. The Court didn’t say that the DNC’s notifications wouldn’t be fraudulent. It simply said, we don’t have to grant your motion, because we don’t have to.
That puts things into perspective doesn’t it? We’re asking high ranking government officials within the federal government’s judicial branch to answer a basic question about the Constitution. That question is simple, but is also a critically important Constitutional question. The answer would have determined whether Obama is eligible to serve another term as President. But the 9th Circuit determined that this question isn’t important enough for it to consider. It isn’t required to answer this question right now, so it will simply look the other way and act as if the issue doesn’t exist. By the time it is required to answer the question, the issue will be moot because the election will be over.
Our federal courts are now publicly stating that they have no desire to enforce the Constitution. They delay, they make excuses, and then when enough time has passed they simply say we don’t have to answer you right now, come back after it no longer matters. Then we will have another excuse: the issue will be moot.
LLF will not let this issue simply fade away. We are considering filing new lawsuits after the DNC sends its fraudulent notifications. After the notifications are sent the legal issues will be even simpler than they have been up to this point. We will either find a judge that is willing to follow the law, or we will further demonstrate the corruption of our judicial branch.
We need your help to continue this fight. If you believe in what we are attempting to do, please help. If you agree that the judicial branch has a duty to enforce the Constitution, please donate today.

After an Estimated 200-250 Displeased Gun-Owners Attend Meeting…
As you recall from prior alerts, Johnston County Commissioners recently attempted to pass a de facto shooting ban under the guise of a noise ordinance. Fortunately, vigilant GRNC members detected the scheme after an attempt to pass it failed due to lack of a quorum. The resulting firestorm of input received from GRNC members and our friends at ncgunowners.com had the desired effect; the gun-specific portions have been removed and the ordinance passed without them.
Enjoy another in a string of pro-freedom victories that you and fellow GRNC members have won over the recent months. This sends an important warning to other municipalities that may have been considering similar legislative end-arounds of North Carolina’s Range Protection Act of 1997.
Johnston County Attorney, David Mills was finally disabused of his notion that Range Protection applies only to commercial ranges. As you may recall, the most significant test of the statute has been by Dr. Michael Land, who successfully repelled not one, but two attempts to shut down his range with lawsuits dismissed in 2010 and 2012. Recent news stories indicate that Mills may not fully realize he lost. We all need to continue to watch Johnston County closely.
A particularly troubling aspect of the Commission’s meeting was Chairman Allen Mims’ lack of decorum in criticizing email input and refusal to open the floor to public comment. The Chairman’s statements can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jniWbF_DqSw. Mr. Mims isn’t up for election until 2014, but he can be assured that we will not forget his attempt to squelch the input of gun owners.
|IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED!|
You need you to do three things:
1. Email Johnston County Attorney, David Mills: Remind him that both statutes and Dr. Land’s precedents demonstrate that the Range Protection Act extends to individuals.
2. Email Johnston County Commission Chair, Allen Mims: Let him know that his efforts to ignore gun owner input will be remembered during his 2014 election.
3. Email Johnston County Commissioner, DeVan Barbour: Thank him for his support of the rights of Johnston County gun owners.
Johnston County Attorney, James Mills and Commission Chair, Allen Mims: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
Johnston County Commissioner, DeVan Barbour: email@example.com
DELIVER THIS MESSAGE TO MILLS AND MIMS:
Messrs. Mims and Mills,
As a concerned North Carolina gun owner, I am pleased that gun-specific language was removed from your recent noise ordinance. Please note that our state’s Range Protection Act extends to individuals as detailed in GRNC President Paul Valone’s letter of September 5.
Any further attempts by Johnston County to infringe upon the rights of gun owners will be vigorously opposed, and will be remembered during elections.
DELIVER THIS MESSAGE TO BARBOUR:
Dear Commissioner Barbour,
I am very grateful for your help in offering a pro-gun amendment to Johnston County’s recently passed noise ordinance. As you know, without striking this language the ordinance would have effected a de facto County-wide shooting ban in violation of state law and Constitutional principle.
Thank you again for your support of freedom in Johnston County, it will not be forgotten during your next election.Sincerely,

(Whether your intent in preparations is active resistance against totalitarianism executed by regime security forces, or simple retreat homestead defense, the fundamental concepts of the guerrilla base, both in structure and tactical defense, apply equally well. The point of this blog has been, from day one, to provide tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) at both the conceptual and practical level that can be utilized effectively by anyone who foresees the probable or potential need to provide security for their families and/or communities. –J.M.)
The primary purpose of the guerrilla base area is to support the UW operations of the local civilian defense group, and function as a tactical operational base. In this role, the guerrilla base serves primarily a defensive function, although of course, it may serve as a base of operations for offensive operations as well, when necessary. The secondary role, inherent to the primary, is to serve as a center of relations to develop, nurture, and maintain liaison with the local civilian-populace. This role is absolutely critical and symbiotic to its role as the base of tactical operations.

The following clip was taken just this week at Columbus Ohio Airport. You can see two of Janet Napolitano’s finest going around and testing passenger’s drinks for explosives. That’s right they use a swab over liquid to see if it has explosive material in it.
What is amazing to watch is how no one seems to be bothered at all that this is being done. We aren’t talking about people just entering the airport. We’re talking about people who have been through security, the grope downs, the naked body scanner, and having their belongings rifled through, who are just waiting to board their plane.
One passenger joked and affirmed what I was thinking as he told of his encounter with the TSA explosive drink agents,
“My wife and son came back from a coffee shop just around the corner, then we were approached. I asked them what they were doing. One of the TSA ladies said that they were checking for explosive chemicals (as we are drinking them). I said “really – inside the terminal? You have got to be kidding me.” I asked them if they wanted to swab us all. She responded with something like, ‘yes sometimes we need to do that’. I then asked if she wanted a urine sample…nonetheless, the TSA is way out of control,” he said.

To whom it may concern:
Thank you for voicing your concerns regarding the Special Reaction Team
training. In 2007 the Department of Defense identified a requirement to
provide better security and policing for our military installations in the
US amidst the regular deployment cycle for missions abroad. The decision to
hire civilian police officers into the armed forces was made in order to
free up our trained military policemen to deploy without having to sacrifice
security at home. In return, their civilian counterparts would be
integrated alongside Marine military policemen to provide security and
policing within the continental US as a blended force.
As you may already know, Special Reaction Team (SRT) training is similar to
Special Weapons and Tactics training in the civilian sector. Both courses
are designed to teach law enforcement tactics that can be incorporated into
their unit's mission. While these techniques are useful in the Global War
on Terror, they are also employed close to home in response to a variety of
threats to our Marine Corps Installations. These tactics are not designed
for use against the average US citizen, but for persons who pose a threat to
the United States and/or the Marine Corps.
The civilian and military policemen chosen to participate in SRT training
are among the best, most highly qualified members of Marine Corps
Installation law enforcement units. The individuals selected for SRT are
recommended by their respective unit to participate in a three-week course
offered at either Fort Leonard Wood, an army base, or the Marine Corps
Police Academy East located at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Those
civilian police officers that undergo the training are actually employed by
the United States Marine Corps to be a part of a SRT. That SRT training
certifies personnel to be a member of a Marine Corps SRT team.
The phrase, "Every Marine is a rifleman," rings as true as the phrase,
"Every civilian military police officer is a Marine." The civilians hired
into our armed forces are trained alongside our service members in an effort
to accomplish the same mission, which is to protect the citizens of the
United States no matter the circumstance or the location.
Thank you for your time and service to our country.

A government accountability group is accusing supervisors at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of urging the agency's employees to vote for President Obama and other Democrats in November.
The Washington, D.C.-based Cause of Action, which identifies itself as nonpartisan, said Wednesday that FAA officials at a Seattle office told employees that the agency’s funding would be more secure if Obama defeats Mitt Romney to win a second term.
The allegation, if true, would be a violation of the Hatch Act, a federal law that prohibits government agencies from getting involved in partisan activities.
Cause of Action Executive Director Daniel Epstein said in a letter to Department of Transportation Inspector General Calvin Scovel that he should investigate the allegations of political pressure being applied to FAA workers.
U.S. lawmakers will allow the country to go over a fiscal cliff on New Year's Eve but quickly return in January and deal with tax increases and spending cuts striking at the same time retroactively, said Peter Orszag, vice chairman of global banking at Citigroup.
At the end of the year, the Bush-era tax cuts and other tax breaks expire at the same time that automatic cuts in government spending kick in, a combination known as a fiscal cliff that could send the country sliding into recession next year if left unchecked by lawmakers.
Don't expect lawmakers to address the cliff during this election year, but do expect them to try and address the problem retroactively after elections by adjusting the timing and scope of the adjustments as well as lifting the nation's borrowing limits to meet spending needs, Orszag said.
Eventually, amnesty for millions of non-white illegal aliens will become reality. Many think this is the beginning of the end of Western Christian civilization in North America. Why have the elites sold us out? Why are they committed to the destruction of the West by the promotion of multiculturalism? And why is multiculturalism the poison that will ultimately prove fatal to Western Christian civilization unless an antidote is quickly administered? Unless we understand exactly what we are dealing with when we bring up the subject of multiculturalism, The League of the South and our allies can never hope to successful combat the enemies who are sworn to our - white Southerners--destruction as a people.
What exactly is multiculturalism (which, for short, I will simply call MC)? Its advocates cast it in innocuous terms, claiming that it is merely justice and the recognition and celebration within the borders of the West of non-Western peoples and cultures. A proposition based on simple fairness, they say. Moreover, the MC crowd claims the superior moral mantle of anti-racism (which is really only a coded term for "anti-white"). The white, Christian West, they posit, bears much guilt for having built its prosperity and civilization on the backs of the poor, dark-skinned races of the world. It is only just, then, that the West share its wealth - including its land and produce - with its myriad poor brothers and sisters from the Third World. Pity and sympathy have become their most potent weapons turned against a West that has lost its ability to think correctly about the question of its very survival.
In our day, virtually every Western institution - church, government, the academy, the media, big business - mimics the cry of left-wing utopian humanism. From the Civil Rights movement in America to the Universal Rights of Man, the demand is the same: "Western man, give up your ill-gotten Kingdom for the good of all." We Westerners are browbeaten in the name of MC to take in millions from the Third World in order that we not only might share our wealth and way of life with them but also to prove that we are not "racists." In short, we are asked to sacrifice all we have at the altar of egalitarianism.
But MC is really not about ushering in equality among all races, religions, and cultures; rather, it is about destroying Western Christian civilization, the world's premier unmitigated evil. And because the South is the strongest enclave of this civilization, it finds itself square in the crosshairs of the MC crowd. Why do you think the Feds are not willing to lift a hand to stop our dispossession by a floodtide of illegal immigrants? It is the continuation of Reconstruction to the ultimate degree. We are being replaced as a people.
