Why We Resist (Videos)


This Saturday, February 23, a Day of Resistance  has been planned for Americans to protest the government’s incessant assaults on our liberties. You can find the nearest rally on the official list, or sign up to get more information.

Matthew Boyle of Big Government recently  talked to the organizer, Dustin Stockton:

Conservatives and Tea Partiers plan to reignite the flame of 2010 next Saturday at rallies in cities and towns across America. The event is titled the “Day of Resistance,” and head organizer Dustin Stockton told Breitbart News that February 23 was picked as the date for several reasons.

“The first is one which I’ve been getting ruthlessly abused for and that is because the AR-15 caliber is .223,” Stockton said in a phone interview. “It’s also the day that we raised the flag in Iwo Jima and it’s also a Saturday, so people who work regular hours can also attend.”

Here are some  videos to get you in the mood….

Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and all other elite politicians trying to marginalize the law-abiding, average American must never forget that they work for us.

Via Matt Bracken, someone who connected the dots – (readers of this blog should know what I’m talking about) –  created this unsettling video.

This video highlights the relationship between socialism, tyranny, the right to keep and bear arms and American freedom from 1776 until today.

Can any glib politician, pundit or ivory tower academic give us an ironclad guarantee that tyranny will never arise in the United States? Not even a popular tyranny, like those of Ataturk, Stalin, Hitler or Mao? Can anyone assure us that today’s “commonsense” gun registration lists will not be used for future gun confiscation? Of course not.

The future may be unknowable, but history is well understood, and American gun owners know and understand the history of democide in the 20th century. That is why they will never accede to what is currently portrayed in the predominantly left-wing mainstream media as “commonsense and reasonable” new gun control laws.

While American gun owners lament and regret the inescapable fact that deranged individuals in a free country may on rare occasions murder a dozen or a score of unarmed victims, they also understand that government democide murders by the million. And in every case, tyrants can conduct these democides only after disarming their unwanted minorities, rendering them helpless to resist murderous government pogroms.

American gun owners will never permit this historical pattern to be repeated in their country, because they understand that the government’s heavy hand will be kept in check only as long as they are armed. Ask yourself: Were the Armenians, the Jews or the kulaks treated better, or worse, after they were disarmed and rendered helpless by their oppressors, who thereafter held an absolute government monopoly on armed violence? The answer is too obvious to require elaboration.

Naive utopians and other “low-information voters” might not understand the historical pattern, and we don’t expect them to bother to learn it. Cynical and dishonest “progressives” who do understand the historical pattern cannot yet reveal their ultimate goal of creating a disarmed and helpless American citizenry. Nevertheless, millions of Americans understand their hidden aim with crystal clarity, seeing through the false sincerity of power-hungry leftist politicians who are actually Marxist wolves dressed in Democrat sheep’s clothing—for now.

But unless and until these secret Stalinists and sundry other “progressives” can figure out a way to disarm Americans, they cannot execute their historically standard final solution to the “reactionaries-standing-in-the-way-of-utopia” problem. And this is a thorny problem for them, because tens of millions of Americans, disbelieving their deceitful bromides, will stick to their guns no matter what.

Meanwhile via Reason: Is Your Local Police Department Using Pictures of Pregnant Women and Children for Target Practice?

What if I told you police in your town could desensitize themselves to the idea of shooting a (armed) child, pregnant woman, or young mother, for just a couple of bucks? The “No More Hesitation” series from Law Enforcement Targets Inc. offers exactly that. For less than 99 cents per target, police can shoot at real-life images “designed to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training.”

The “subjects” look like they’re in their own homes defending themselves from some kind of police assault….



Bob Owens:

If they were created at the request of a government agency, then legislators responsible for oversight of the agencies in question and the applicable inspector general should hold public hearings to discover why they were created.

Subcontractor for Time Warner Was Doing Work at Time of KC Explosion

The blast on the Plaza, in Kansas City, last night is big news in my neck of the woods. A day after a natural gas explosion leveled the popular Plaza restaurant, JJ’s, investigators are trying to figure out what happened.

Fox 4 is reporting:

 Heartland Midwest was doing subcontract work for Time Warner Cable at the time of Tuesday’s explosion at JJ’s Restaurant on the Country Club Plaza.

Heartland Midwest confirmed to FOX 4 Wednesday afternoon subcontractors were extending a fiber line to a nearby business when the line was struck.

15 people were hurt in the blast, six were still hospitalized Wednesday morning. One body was pulled out of the rubble, earlier today.

The restaurant was in the process of evacuating because people had been smelling gas in the area.

When asked what time firefighters received the first call, Chief Berardi was hesitant to answer because he didn’t have the report in front of him but said it may have been around 5:15 p.m. The gas explosion occurred shortly after 6 p.m.

Minutes before the explosion, employees at JJ’s Restaurant and MGE were in the process of evacuating the building. It’s unclear how many people were in or near the restaurant at the time of the explosion.

MRC Blitzes Times Square With “Stop Censoring The News” Billboards

billboards 1

Over Presidents’ Day weekend, the Media Research Center put up five massive billboards footsteps away from Times Square. The ad buy, worth 230,000, is the largest in their 26-year history, and will generate 1.4 million “eyes on impressions” during the several weeks the billboards will be towering over the intersection.

All five billboards direct viewers to StopCensoringTheNews.org, where they can sign a petition demanding the national news media stop spiking stories that might hurt the Obama Administration or slow down Obama’s agenda.MRC President Brent Bozell:

“During the 2012 election, the liberal media moved beyond bias. They actively and repeatedly censored any story that could have jeopardized Barack Obama’s re-election. Now in 2013, they’re censoring any story that could slow his administration’s second term agenda. Their behavior is as disgraceful as it is unprecedented. These billboards – located in the hub of the liberal media’s nerve center – put them on notice. The American people are sick and tired of the establishment media’s collusion with the Obama Administration, and won’t stand for a corrupt press willing to censor the news.

Some of us are also sick of establishment Republicans allowing themselves to get rolled by treacherous libs over and over and over again.

To wit: Duh!… Former RNC Chair Says it Was Mistake to Use Lib Crank Candy Crowley as Debate Moderator:

The geniuses at the Republican Party continue to impress.
Frank Fahrenkopf, a co-chair of the Commission on Presidential Debates, and former chairman of the RNC, admitted this week that using liberal crank Candy Crowley as a debate moderator was a mistake.

Thank you Captain Obvious. Next time, how about insisting on debate moderators who aren’t the committed lefties all of them were in 2012? Is that too much to ask of the STUPID party?

Last Sept, Bozell called the media rigging of the 2012 election, “the worst liberal bias in 25 years.”

Video: Benghazi Retaliation for Secret War Run by John Brennan, Claim Former Navy Seal and Green Beret

In a new e-book entitled, Benghazi: The Definitive Report, two retired special operations warriors, former Navy SEAL Brandon Web and  former Green Beret Jack Murphy  say they have discovered the reason behind the attack on the compound in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. They claim it was retaliation by Islamist militants who had been targeted by covert U.S. military operations.

The book claims that neither Stevens nor even Petraeus knew about the raids by American special operations troops, which had ‘kicked a hornet’s nest’ among the heavily-armed fighters after the overthrow of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

John Brennan, President Barack Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser, had been authorizing ‘unilateral operations in North Africa outside of the traditional command structure,’ according to the e-book. Brennan is Obama’s pick to replace Petraeus as head of the CIA.

Web and Murphy say that Brennan was given “carte blanche to run operations in North Africa and the Middle East” by Obama, and never warned the CIA or Stevens about ongoing U.S. military operations in the country. They claim that Benghazi “was retaliation by Islamist militants who had been targeted by covert U.S. military operations.”

The men appeared on Fox and Friends with Steve Doocy to discuss their book, Tuesday morning.
