GOA Action Alert: The War to Preserve Our Gun Rights Reaching Fever Pitch



Anti-gun Liberals Pulling Out the Stops to Get a Radical Supreme Court Justice


ACTION:  Contact Senator Mitch McConnell and urge him to stand strong against the media pressure.  Demand that he block any anti-gun “swing vote” from moving through the Senate and being confirmed to the Supreme Court.  

Don’t Let McConnell Backtrack on Blocking Obama’s Anti-gun Nominee.

Mitch McConnell is under a lot of heat from the liberal media.

But he got it right when he recently indicated that Obama's effort to snuff out the Second Amendment needs to be nipped in the bud. 

No radical Supreme Court nominee to make the rounds and visit with Republican senators.

No hearings.  No floor votes.  No possibility of movement or confirmation.

Nothing … period.

Because, make no mistake about it:  If Obama gets his pick, the Second Amendment, as far as the corrupt courts are concerned, is dead.

500+ pack meeting – demand 'no refugees' in Montana

No Syrian refugees will be welcomed in Ravalli County.

To see more than 500 people at a government meeting usually means one of two things – a major tax hike is on the agenda or something akin to a nuclear waste dump is being proposed.

So what was it that had the townspeople of rural Ravalli County, Montana, so stirred up?

The answer is simple: Syrian refugees.

They don’t want any.

The county held a public hearing Feb. 18 on a proposed letter to be sent to the Obama administration, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and the state’s congressional delegation making one point abundantly clear – no Syrian refugees will be welcomed in Ravalli County.

The county commissioners voted unanimously to send the letter.

"Nimrata Haley is a criminal, first generation American who has betrayed our Constitution"

 Comment by JEFFREY on Confederate Battle Flag & SC Primary (Excellent Tr...

Lets make this simple.....

Rubio and Nimrata Haley both are Anchor Baby's....Rubio's parents were Cuban Citizens 5 years after his birth and Nimrata's parents were Indian Citizens 4 years after her birth.

Marco Rubio is a Naturalized Citizen, he is Constitutionally barred from holding the Offices of the Presidency and Vice Presidency, just as is Nimrata Haley.

Both do not meet the Requirements of Natural Born Citizen.

Both Marco Rubio and Nimrata Haley have betrayed their oaths of office to uphold the Constitution. They are betraying the American people and the Citizens of South Carolina and placing us in harms way.

Nimrata is encouraging the unconstitutional eligibility of of the 10 million anchor baby's born in America to Illegal Aliens to the offices of the Presidency...

Think about it...They are saying that anchor baby's born upon American soil are Eligible for our two highest offices.

That also includes foreign born Muslims, Russians, Asians and of course Canadians...

Our Framers installed the Natural Born clause in Article II to prevent foreign influences in our two highest offices of the Presidency.

One must be Born upon American Soil to TWO PARENTS who are American Citizens...

These people are making allowances for Queen Noor and King Hussein's 4 Muslim Children...For Princes Grace and Prince Rainier III children of Monaco...

This is not what our Framers intended and anyone who supports this usurpation of our Constitution are traitors...

Nimrata Haley is a criminal, first generation American who has betrayed our Constitution and Conservatives are elevating her with their praises...

Vote for Trump and stop this insanity.

A Reminder For South Carolina Voters – Cold Anger!

After many months of professional political punditry “gaslighting” Americans, the patriots in South Carolina enter their moment to have their voices heard.  A visible and quantifiable moment to clearly state our refusal to be co-dependents in our national demise….

We Remember – December 23rd 2009 when Majority Leader Harry Reid passed a version of Obamacare through forced vote at 1:30am. The Senators could not leave, and for the two weeks previous were kept in a prolonged legislative session barred returning to their home-state constituencies. It was, by all measures and reality, a vicious display of forced ideological manipulation of the upper chamber; shared as a reminder for what set the stage, and what followed.

Riddled with anxiety we watched the Machiavellian manipulations unfold, seemingly unable to stop the visible usurpation. Desperate for a tool to stop the construct in December 2009 we found Scott Brown and rallied to deliver $7 million in funding, and a “Kennedy Seat” victory on January 19th 2010.

1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback 1 of 2 Built in This Color Combination

Like 1969, the 1970 Boss 429 was offered in only five exterior paint choices. However, the colors were updated for the Boss 429’s second year to highlight Ford’s new eye-grabbing “Grabber” paints—Blue, Orange and Green. The bright, orangey Calypso Coral was also available. And then there was Pastel Blue, a color more associated with passive art deco than road-ripping performance. Only 18 of the 500 Boss 429s built for 1970 were delivered in Pastel Blue, a shade designed to replicate a Diamond hue blue, so pale that it could easily be mistaken for Ford’s more common Wimbledon White. The majority of Pastel Blue 1970 Boss 429s came with the black interior; only two of the 18 were equipped with the white interior. According to Boss 429 expert Ed Meyer, that makes it the lowest production of all Boss 429 exterior/interior color combinations.

Obama White House fails to deliver counter Islamic terrorism strategy: Report

Via Billy

AJ February 18, 2016 at 3:50 am
 Mr. Kouri,
Thank you for your column. It is my belief that the puppet president has not devised a counter Islamic terrorism strategy because the Islamic terrorism is embedded within the larger, U. N. Agenda 21/2030 strategy.

Chaos, the destruction of our culture and society, and the fiscal implosion that accompanies such an assault is sacrosanct. Regarding the importation of Syrian ‘refugees’, we’re told that we can’t fully vet the massive numbers of ‘refugees’.

My perspective is that the U. N. is vetting those being imported, with the intention of importing criminals and terrorists under the veil of refugee status. This is designed to hasten the purposeful destruction of our constitutional and sovereign republic, akin to the destruction of Europe.

National Defense Authorization Act for FY16, signed last fall by President Barack Obama, requires the Secretary of State and Defense Secretary to turn over a real strategy for the Middle East and countering violent extremism no later than Feb. 15, 2016.

It requires the Administration to lay out a number of elements needed to defeat terrorist groups like ISIS and al Qaeda, including a description of the role the U.S. military will play in such a strategy, a description of the coalition needed to carry out the strategy, and an assessment of efforts to disrupt foreign fighters traveling to Syria and Iraq.

The White House has failed to comply.  Reacting to the the Administration’s failure to submit the strategy, Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, made the following statement: “Unsurprisingly the Administration cannot articulate a strategy for countering violent extremists in the Middle East.  Time and again, the President has told us his strategy to defeat extremist groups like ISIS and al Qaeda is well underway; yet, months after the legal requirement was established, his Administration cannot deliver that strategy to Congress.”

“I fear the President’s failure to deliver this report says far more about the state of his strategy to defeat terrorists than any empty reassurance he may offer from the podium,” Thornberry added.

Flying cars are just TWO years away: Terrafugia claims its TF-X will be ready to take to the skies by 2018


Traffic can be a real grind. For those travelling between work and home by car every day, the seemingly endless cycle of gas-brake-repeat at a snail's pace can wear thin.

But commuters of the very-near future may be granted some respite by taking to the skies in a flying car.

The US company behind the concept vehicle TF-X is hoping a prototype will be ready to fly in just two years - and it will go on general sale within eight.

New Jersey Slaps Felony Gun Charge on Another Law-Abiding Citizen

Intrepid reporter Ginny Simone with the National Rifle Association has uncovered yet another story in which a law-abiding gun owner finds himself in the crosshairs of New Jersey’s draconian gun laws.

“Not even law enforcement officers are safe from New Jersey’s gun laws,” writes Simone. “Sgt. Ray Hughes, a corrections officer in Pennsylvania, was headed home after dinner with his wife in Atlantic City when they were hit by a drunk driver. Even though he was the victim, Hughes became a criminal — he’s now facing a felony charge for bringing his gun into New Jersey.”

“It’s just the latest in a long string of miscarriages of justice that characterize the state’s gun-control regime,” continues Simone. “Watch this exclusive report with Ray Hughes and his wife Denise.”

Hitler, Mussolini, FDR, and Obama

Many people today feel as if President Obama has been leading America covertly into the Socialism Bernie is overtly proclaiming.  Many feel that they are no longer living in the America of their youth.

 It is necessary to understand how we got here.

History not only allows us the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of others, it also provides us with a mirror to show us how we are continuing the mistakes of others.  The present does not appear like a virgin birth in a vacuum; it is the child of the past.  The America of today was born in the progressivism of the 1890.

The Commie Pope . . .

Via Billy

. . . has revealed himself once again to be no different from all his fellow Jesuits:  a feeble-minded pop-Marxist ideologue hiding behind a priest’s collar whose real “bible” is The Communist Manifesto.  He did it this time by pontificating that Donald Trump is in his opinion “not a Christian” because he opposes unlimited immigration of welfare parasites.

It has long been part of the program of the hardcore Marxist Left to internationalize welfare to force the more productive, capitalist countries to (hopefully) bankrupt themselves by forcing their taxpayers to open up their bank accounts to all the welfare parasites on the planet, from anywhere and everywhere.  If the little commie from Argentina in the funny hat who rides around in that souped-up golf cart was serious about the wellbeing of immigrants, he would share some of the Vatican’s billions with them, perhaps even by selling off some of his church’s vast real estate holdings in Italy.

 (He is said to be the biggest real estate owner in all of Italy). And if he was really opposed to “building walls,” he would not live behind the giant wall that surrounds his home, the Vatican

“But that it was clear that no act they [the state legislature] could pass, could by any means repeal or alter the constitution, because if they could do this, they would at the same instant of time destroy their own existence as a legislature and dissolve the government thereby established.”
        --Bayard v. Singleton, 1 N.C. 42 (1787) [North Carolina Supreme Court]

The unfortunate circumstances of January 26, 2016, which resulted in the death of LaVoy Finicum and the arrest of Ammon Bundy, Ryan Payne, Ryan Bundy, and Brian Cavalier was a blow to an effort to expose the dishonesty of the federal government in its pursuit of acquiring land belonging to ranchers in Oregon.

In fact, the story behind what happened in Burns, Oregon actually goes much further. It had begun to show the underbelly of the beast we call the US government, its failure in obedience to the Constitution, the very document that created it, and its failure to abide by established judicial “due process of law”. Perhaps most significant is its absolute disregard for human life, and especially so if that life is of one who believes in the Constitution.

27 Photo Manipulations In The USSR

Contemporary news agencies are often blamed for photo manipulations. It started long ago in fact. Back in the times of WWII graphic artists learnt to distor reality and show what they wanted to show but not what really had happened. Thus, they often added excessive Nazi atrocities, terrible ruins and looting to fill papers with horrifying images.
However we do not have to exclude that such atrocities and other terrific events could really happen, it was just difficult to catch them with a camera due to their spontaneity. Photographers were rarely in a right time and in a right place. It's today when everyone has a cameraphone we can shoot everything we see.
Photo manipulations as an instrument of propaganda is claimed to be natural. Below you will see some photos taken during WWII that underwent montage for the purpose of propaganda.
