Could The Feds Be Starting A Massacre After What They Just Did?

Georgia Execution

So the Obama Feds are sick of being thwarted by groups of anti-illegal-immigration protesters carrying flags and attempting to prevent their community from being overrun with migrants.  Local police officers in Murietta, CA are telling the protesters, who are still camped out and preventing buses carrying immigrants from passing, that the Feds are going to show up on Monday with riot gear to push the crowd back.  This is reminiscent of the recent showdown at the Clive Bundy Ranch, where militia members prevented heavily-armed Federal agents from taking (or killing) more cows from the Bundy Ranch than they already had.

Senator Harry Reid was quoted as saying, “It is an issue that we cannot let go, just walk away from.”  Even though the Obama administration is blatantly not following the duly passed laws of the United States concerning immigration, Harry Reid was incensed that any proud American would stand up to Federal government overreach.  Financial disputes are carried out routinely in this country peacefully, without heavily armed Federal agents.

Bill O’Reilly correctly stated on his program recently that the American public is getting really angry at the United States Federal government.  That is a serious understatement.  Better said, the American people are enraged at our Federal government.  They are enraged at Obama going around the laws passed by Congress and deciding what to do on his own.  They are enraged at King Obama encouraging thousands of children to enter this country illegally and then placing them in communities around the country for them to stay in perpetuity.

Harry Reid said during the Bundy incident that “We are a nation of laws.”  The problem is that Harry Reid, Obama, and Eric Holder only enforce or obey the laws that they like.  Their illegal actions over the last six years have made obeying laws in this country a moot point. Reid is the proverbial pot calling the kettle black.  Any American knows that if they go over the speed limit on the highway, the cops will only be too happy to give you a ticket and take your money.  On the flip-side, they see these illegal immigrants blatantly breaking the law, only to be given services and comfort that you and I pay for.  It seems crime does pay if you’re an immigrant or a Democrat.

So now we have the prospect of more Federal overreach and heavy-handedness in the Murietta situation.  We have angry patriots who are going to be forcibly pushed aside as they try and protect their own communities from disease and unrecouped costs. What if some rogue agent decides he needs to taser some aggressive demonstrator?  What if one of these protesters has a gun? What is some innocent person gets hurt or even killed?  This is a VERY dangerous situation.  It could be another Kent State; only this time, the liberals will be in charge.  I only hope it doesn’t happen–as next time, it won’t be another Kent State, but will be another Lexington-Concord.

Shocking: This Disabled Vet Was Kicked Out Of An Independence Day Parade For An Unthinkable Reason

Each Independence Day, citizens across the U.S. reflect on America’s unique history of freedom and honor those brave men and women who fought – and continue to fight – so hard to protect it. In one Minnesota community, however, a July Fourth parade was deemed no place for one disabled veteran.

According to a report by Examiner.com, Charlie Makidon was prepared for the International Falls parade, during which he hoped to pass out literature detailing the perceived duplicitous nature of U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan’s attitude toward veterans. Although the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party congressman proudly declares himself an advocate for current and former military members, Makidon spent a significant amount of his own money to print fliers showing the times he had voted against their best interest.

As Examiner cited, Nolan heralds his work on “bills to help our service members, veterans, and their families” in a post on his official website.

Upon further review, however, some of his purported advocacy strikes some as less than inspiring. For example, he supports one bill that allows veterans to seek private medical care only after more than four months of being unable to make an appointment at a military facility.

When parade organizer Kevin Adee got word of the former Disabled American Veterans commander’s intention, he quickly informed Makidon that he was not welcome.

Upon hearing that the veteran had been kicked out of the parade, one attendee took a special interest in getting to the bottom of the incident. Koochiching County Republican Party Chairman Terry Stone approached Adee and demanded answers.

The organizer reportedly told Stone that, since the parade was a family event, the veteran could not take part in the political activity. Upset, the GOP leader informed Adee that the U.S. Constitution is irrevocably connected to the American family.

He elaborated on his concern in an interview with the Examiner.

“I guess the First Amendment’s protections don’t extend all the way to the Canadian border,” he lamented.

Stone noted that the freedom of speech holds a special place of importance in America’s overall freedom – which should be the focus of any Independence Day event.

Krauthammer Blasts Obama For “Opening The Doors Of America” To Illegals For Political Reasons

crisis

During Monday’s “Special Report” segment, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer explained how the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 is being manipulated to apply to the current crisis at the border–a way in which it was originally not intended to be used.

“The law was passed in ’08, yes in the Bush administration, yes unanimously,” Krauthammer said. “But it was intended for sex trafficking. It was intended for small numbers of kids and it made a lot of sense. It was never intended for a mass influx, a mass immigration. And people are yelling you are inhumane to return them. Well that’s exactly what the law is for Mexicans or Canadians. So, if it’s inhumane why haven’t we heard a protest about the return of kids who come in from Mexico? It was intended for something else. Obama is clearly making the statement indirectly by that story you just gave from AP and through his Homeland Security secretary who refused to answer about deportation, that he’s opening the doors of America to this influx. It will double, it will triple.”

“When we were told last week that ‘Oh, Obama wants to change the law to make it apply to Central Americans as it does Americans,’ I was saying, ‘Show us you’re serious. Introduce a law immediately into Congress and get it passed.’ He didn’t. He obviously was never serious. I don’t think he’s lost on this. I think he knows what to do. He wants to win for political reasons very, very cynically.”

Latino Anti-Tea Party Group Wants Murrieta Protesters Prosecuted

As amnesty opponents continue to protest in Murrieta, Calif., buses carrying illegal immigrants destined to be dropped off in the community have been forced to reroute three times since July 1. While these demonstrators have received enthusiastic support from Americans who believe in enforcing the nation’s immigration laws, amnesty advocates are fighting back.

According to a letter recently sent to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, one Latino group is demanding an investigation into protest organizers and supporters.

The Tequila Party, established as a direct response to the conservative Tea Party movement, cited a number of individuals specifically as recommended targets of a federal inquiry.

Breitbart reports that a number of pro-amnesty activists and attorneys signed the letter, which called the Murrieta protesters “homeland domestic terrorists” who “were obstructing federal law enforcement from performing their jobs and terrorizing small refugee immigrant children from Central America with racial slurs.”

Murrieta Mayor Alan Long, who initially called locals to action when he heard that busloads of illegals were headed for his town, is among those named in the letter. Additional targets include City Councilwoman Diana Serafin, two Border Patrol agents, the Murrieta Police Department, and two protesters.

Dee Dee Garcia Blase, one activist who signed the demanding letter, spoke to Breitbart regarding her motivation to see these Americans investigated.

She alleged that the protesters might have “engaged in potential criminal conspiracy to violate federal and state laws,” adding she hopes to find out exactly who is behind the protests.

According to her statement, Blase wants the “DOJ and the FBI to determine who made the decision to block the bus since Mayor Alan Long admitted several protesters were from out of town – allegedly from FAIR or Numbers USA.”

Despite the opposition, there seems to be little evidence that the Murrieta protests are dying down. As Western Journalism reported, new demonstrators are joining the continuing effort.

Organizers conclude that their mission remains to keep a watchful eye on Border Patrol activity, which they say will likely include new shipments of illegals to the city if and when protesters disband.

Ron Paul: America Can Be Saved By Doing This One Simple Thing

Former Congressman Ron Paul recently gave an interview with Anthony Wile of the Daily Bell. Dr. Paul dealt with a number of questions fielded by Wile, including the question of what can be done to restore our constitutional republic.

Dr. Paul said he said he works “on the assumption that you can save the republic but not in a conventional way.”  He does not think the republic is going to be saved by “electing two or three or ten more members of Congress” who are committed to doing the right thing.

Dr. Paul highlighted the critical role played by education in saving the republic, talking about economic education in particular. He says that there are “lots of people waking up” to the falsehoods of Keynesianism. Keynesianism is the belief system that underlies recent attempts to pump fiat currency into our system by former Federal Reserve chair Ben Bernanke and current Fed chair Janet Yellen, resulting in economic malaise rather than robust growth.

So what prescription does Dr. Paul have for the Federal Reserve, the central bank that has been overseen by Bernanke and Yellen?  He would eventually like to see the Federal Reserve shuttered. He simply says that “we want constitutional money and we want commodity money and we want freedom of choices in it. And that is the important thing.”

Dr. Paul is not just talking about education, either. He has enacted a home school curriculum and also started the Ron Paul Channel to inform people about critical freedom issues.

Paul finds his greatest encouragement in the many young people who are open to pro-liberty ideas.
