His Honor must be thoroughly chagrined at the fact that "Bis Sis" shares his surname! this man absolutely MUST be AT LEAST a forerunner in the selection of our next Attorney General ! Let's all hope he stays healthy and sharp as ever!
1 year, 8 months ago on Why We Should Mistrust the Government
To Taskforce, Lambert and Ducksmr:
Reading your post reminds me that the wise person is not quick to be critical - but patient in his/her reading. All of you have opinions and all unquestionably have the best of intentions. Reading all three commentaries provides one with an exercise in comparative thinking. It promotes reference to the real thing(s) - the Constitution and its amendments - along with founders' correspondence and records of proceedings. there's nothing quite like getting it right for any who wish to be literally articulate about any matter. May I suggest this consideration for all. Thanks guys.

@mrducksmrnot Thanks for comment. Roger! I think your service in Nam commendable - and my regrets over your injury. I say this to YOU as a vet - NOT to the government who sent you into that farce of an engagement under the ruse of "freedom and justice". I'm a college student of the 60's who (along with a lot of pals) had no use for the "hippie" (socio-Marxist-anarchist) crowd. I was rated 4F as I had lost hearing in an ear caused by childhood injury. Were it not for that I would have very likely been in Nam too. My dad was a War II bomber pilot. My burning desire was to also pilot (preferably) tactical aircraft. Just think - could've been a roommate of McCain??? I'm dedicated to freedom and liberty here at HOME! Semper Fi definitely applies here!
Our computers are literally crawling by neo scams and their sattelites. I think the Tenth amendment Center is NOT one of them. I have precious little money with which to give - even to those outfits I deem worthy. As such, I must prioritize and choose carefully. If nothing else, the Center serves an educational purpose. Given the overall ignorance and apathy among our citizenry about things political and governmental, education is absolutely foundational.
Sadly, however, so many citizens are representative of those hard-headed children who have no concept of "cognitive". Effective learning for them must often come at the hands of embarrassment, abandonment and pain (even physical pain!). Our prostituted government is certainly doling out enough of the latter. How far will we sink before we might literally have to fight our way out? How long will the self proclaimed "entitled" hang onto their string of bread crumbs before they wise up about the "messiah"? I literally have acquaintences from across the sea who know far, far more about our history, politics and government than the "average" American could ever hope to know. A little Pogo quipped to friend Albert: "We have met the enemy and it is us".
Interesting, isn't it, that the firearms issue seems to represent the bottom line. The founders placed the Second Amendment behind only the First because they knew why it must be so. In passing legislation such as Kansas', states are following the constitution and honoring the founders. Not all are fools - and it seems those of us in the fly-over zone are well ahead of the pack! I will be one (from MO) to offer my bit of spine to Gov Brownback, the KS legislature and the patriots of Kansas! Holder is the federal enforcement version of national socialism. Seig Heil yer a**!
1 year, 8 months ago on Eric Holder Threatens Kansas in Letter on Gun Control Nullification Law
COUNTRYGUARD responded to my post re KS Gov Brownback signing of bill to nullify federal gun controls. In essense (he?) highlighted the dangers inherent in "federal" money "given" to the states - and referenced Constitutional mandates for federal limitations. Quite correct. Will it happen? I thought of a metaphoric question: "Does a whore WORK for money"???? Why does he/she choose to whore in the first place?
I came across a bit of history a while back that all with the least interest in the matter of "federal" (OUR) money being "given" (back) to the source should read. I recall that I found the item while searching otherwise for Davy Crockett, frontiersman and early legislator from Tennessee. I searched Davy Crockett legislation - or something close to that language. The story has to do with a friendship and "upbringing" by a Tennessee farmer who reminded Crockett of the wrongs by government in "giving" the citizens money to others. It's a great read. I intend to paste it across to my legislators. I've been in touch with them frequently of late and must say that I have been surprised at how much they DON'T KNOW - particularly of history.
1 year, 9 months ago on Kansas Governor Sam Brownback Signs 2nd Amendment Protection Act into Law
As response to response: I've spoken in person with a number of our municipal police about any eventuality they should be ordered to enforce illegal actions (gun confiscation in particular) against the citizenry. To a man they swear the WILL NOT! I thank them - BUT - also ask whether they have seriously considered their personal health should they break their promise? THEY ALL KNOW!
Hoorah Brownback! Sometimes the Jayhawks DO come through. Here in MO we're hot on their heels with an even stronger version - providing that our suck-egg mule of a governor doesn't vetoe it. You know, the governor who approved the collection and storage of personal, private information by his appointee hack at Department of Revenue - and who also gave the green light for the Superintendent of the Highway Patrol to send that data to the feds TWICE! I spoke to my district legislator today for some time. When I mentioned this crime against state AND federal law his first remark was: "That's a red-HOT issue around here"! My response: "I know - I've sent timber for the fire"! The Gov, AG, head of DOR and the HP Super had better be looking for cover! Should the Gov veto MO's gun control nullification act I should think an override just might be in the works.
Namegame72 has it pretty much nailed - as does the article. Here in MO we are embroiled in subpoena of state officials over the collection, storage and transmission of personal, private data for concealed carry permittees to the feds. Our district 102 representative Kurt Bahr (among others) has submitted HB 886 to our legislature. See email@example.com. This treachery committed on behalf of a democratic administration reaches from the governor down through the AG, director of our Dept of Revenue to the Supt of the MO Highway patrol - and surely has connections to the federal administration! Talk about a golden opportunity to fry a bunch of snakes!
1 year, 9 months ago on Let Me Say This Clearly
The American Revolution certainly was a nullification of governmental treachery! We are, of course, up to our necks in treachery from numerous fronts - with "government" leading the way. We were warned to be on guard for this by very mmany of our fopunders. The more I read and learn about those men the more I marvel at their wisdom and counsel. If only we had been so wise as to remain vigilant and corrective through so many decades. Now we're up against it. We read that many of us (along with legions of our active military and veterans) say we will defend the greater values of our Constitution. Will we?

The arrogance of the demented is building. One can only hope that we still have a majority of rational citizens who will reach a tipping point and bring this slide into oblivion to a halt. We must remember that we have responsibilities to act. It ain't gonna happen if we don't!
Nullification could very well be our best hope to thwart national socialism. Seig Heil your a**!

Go to missourifirst.org/ and to firstname.lastname@example.org. Search for reports of bill activity to find what MO is attempting to do - AND what MO is attempting to do with a seditious state agency! Good stuff! All against the fact that we have a crony democrat grvernor and a democrat attorney general.
Thks for AL info. Will check out

Dialogue can reach the point where it is both foolish and destructive to further pursue. Rather, it is incumbent upon the listener to determine the better cause.
Missouri. Have been working closely with district legislators. We have had some arcane stuff coming primarily from urban minority sources (kids in school to report guns at home, etc) and it has gone down in flames! Current bill up for vote is reported to be strongest in nation. As of now it's looking good.
To freewill - correct. Something I've considered: Any thoughts about the ACTUAL organizing of a militia?
For example - Begin with a neighborhood. Add more neighborhoods. Graduate to an entire community.
According to our Constitution we are not only granted the right to organize, we are EXPECTED to do so. Sure, we now have standing forces far beyond anything existing in colonial times. BUT - If there was anything the founders were good at it was that of looking forward. It should be recalled that many of them cautioned we take pause to consider that one's own government could become a likely source of treachery. Guess what ?!!
Response to Rich Smith 1: Can't get the gist of your question re "arm militia - both classes"? Would you please better explain at greater length?
Think of the true intellectual disposition of the crowd which parades its unconstitutional fervor to destroy the bottom line implements of self determination for the citizens of an entire nation upon the souls of our murdered teachers and children! Just exactly how nefarious is it for persons to be? Think the founders were "out-of-touch"? Consider: "He who is willing to give up a freedom for a bit of temporary safety deserve neither safety not freedom" (Ben Franklin in paraphrasing a similar and earlier quote from a European.) If they knew anything, those men knew the history of human behavior! They challenged us to become people of a greater nation and gave us the document (law) by which we could do so. It is OURS to do! Failure can belong to no one but YOU and ME. Stand tall !
At this moment I am writing my state representatives and senator rather detailed letters regarding a number of matters - principally about nullification of federal violations of the Second Amendment that (could) be enacted. This post is excellent in its rational, factual and educational content. It will be forwarded to a number of state legislators AND our democrat (party) governor.
Again to Kepka with apologies for previous misspelling of surname:
I'm 68 - just a bit younger but old enough to find par. I make no apologies for involvement that might appear topsome as bickering, etc. I am a stickler about the articulation of truth and accuracy and consider it a duty to correct those who appear in arrears. I'll take my medicine when proven wrong. In the meantime, I'll stick with the effort to educate.
2 years ago on Wyoming to Preserve the Second Amendment? – Tenth Amendment Center Blog
Regarding Koepka's latest post: some of us do have a memory, eh? Keep it up with the (accurate) info. Education is paramount - even among the "fraternity" !
@Robert kepka @RedTulie @Patrick Henry
@Robert kepka After thought to Robert: Curious....Does "Who's Who" include info about individuals' activity with particular corps, banks, governmental "activities", etc?
@Robert kepka Robert: Thanks for sharing your knowledge of into source. I'l find it. Have attempted many web searches for a concise source of this info with poor luck. Thanks again.
To "Robert" and others who read my post and responded - or did not: Robert intimated that our "representative" prostitutes are essentially whores of banking, world banking, corporate oligarchy, the World Bank, World Monetary Fund and - in a more collective sense - the New World Order - touted by none other than Republican George H.W. Bush (my "interpretation" of Robert's response). The global elitists who represent those entities are the apex apes. - thus the true "targets". I would suggest, however, that they would have small chance to succeed in their mission had they not the prostitutes to either "ignore" the agenda - or to actually promote that (agenda) through legislation. Attacks on the Second Amendment are a case-in-point for obvious reasons. For readers who truly want critical information on the global corporate / economic control cabal, I strongly suggest you find the book "Confessions of an Economic Hitman". By contemporary values, it is a lenghthy and "booring" read but, boy, is it an eye opener !!
If, in fact, an executive order is used to direct / order cabinet, agency heads, etc. to conduct tasks in prescribed manner(s) it would seem, then, that the president stands alone in the matter. ie - he is solely responsible for the action. That being the case, shouldn't he/she stand as responsible for personally violating Constitutional law? The Constitution is law, isn't it? It also seems that our revered "representatives" have lost most regard for our most basic of laws (as well).
Regarding Revolutionary War arms: Two primary weapon systems ruled the conflict....muskets and cannon. Muskets pretty much represented parity. Cannon came to represent some degree of parity - particularly after the Colonials won a few fights and captured Brit cannon. That's pretty much that.
Now consider this factoid little known by our "public": German gunmakers had come up with an advantage in increased accuracy as they cut a spiral pattern of longitudinal grooves into the bores of rifles. Thus, the most appropriate term - rifling. Gun maker colonials of German descent living primarily in Pennsylvania had picked up on this. Muskets of the day had no rifled barrels and fired inherently unstable lead balls through what were essentially shotgun barrels that could scarcely strike a man-sized target at 150 feet - even in the hands of the most proficient infantry. A spinning ball fired from a rifled barrel could take down an enemy at 300 feet (100 yards or better) with reliability in the hands of a marksman. Here is the beginning of the sniper. The strict regimentation of Brit forces was entirely built around the command of officers - and the Brits made a big to-do about distinctive officers dress - plus, they were always on horseback. The colonials knew this. Their marksmen fired from trees or covering terrain and specifically targeted Brit commanders. Once the commanders fell, Brit infantry was lost and ineffective. The point: This advance in technology we now take for granted made a big difference for colonists success in prosecuting the war. In this particular manner, the colonists had an advantage in arms.
Now, the Second Amendment to our Constitution recognized this aspect of things - even though it was written well before the war. We hear of guns for hunting. Constitutionally speaking, this is baloney. During colonial times, hunting was a given - period. (We now classify hunting as a privelege.) The framers wrote the Second Amendment with personal protection (family / property, etc.) well in mind but specifically as back-up for protection of liberties against those enemies they felt certain to emerge from without and WITHIN! Given the government from which they had flown, the framers DID NOT TRUST GOVERNMENT ! These were learned men. They knew damned well that governments ALWAYS putrify - no matter the kind. Many wrote that they suspected that our government would putrify and become treacherous - regardless of their magnifcent effort to provide a blueprint designed to minimize the chances. GUESS WHAT HAS HAPPENED - AND WHAT WE ARE NOW FACING? (As though it hasn't been happening for many decades!)
What, one must ask, has changed? Does any knowledgeable citizen doubt that the framers were flat out intelligent, circumspect to a fault, and decidedly wise. The citizen who does not is either abjectly ignorant or an outright idiot! Sadly, we are burdened with ship loads of idiots! Our framers were not the only who had such wisdom. A Frenchman, Alexis deToquiville wrote eloquently of governments and liberties. He was a SUBJECT of Louis XVI. The founders knew well of him. Google deToquevill and read for yourselves.
We hear various nabobs blather about how civilian arms must not use "large capacity" cartridge magazines. I'm a lifelong hunter. It is FACT that any who use a rifle in hunting do not need 10 round (or more) ammo magazines. Any hunter who hasn't achieved sufficient skills in marksmanship and the requisite wisdom to select acceptible shots does not belong in the field! Many states that allow AR platform (and other semi-auto) types of rifles for hunting require the use of low total magazines (usually no more than five rounds) for reason. BUT, as per above, the primary reasons for the Second Amendment were not about hunting, remember? It is about the enemy from without and from WITHIN. Should our situation with government ever come to decisive armed conflict, will current civilian arms put patriots on par with forces employed to put them down? Not a chance! BUT, will the arms now available provide a very significant message to any determined to strip the nation of its liberties? Yup! AND DON'T THINK for a Manhattan second that ("they") don't know it! Why in the name of Jehosophat would one think ("they") are so hell-bent on stiff infringement of the Second - which, by the way - could easily segue into outright confiscation? Sure, there are those who are so feeble as to support restrictions upon the souls of those lost in Aurora and Newtown, etc. Honestly, I grieve for those people and babies just as much as they. Given that I believe so strongly in the Second and the responsible use of arms, I might actually grieve more strongly. We have, however, no right to destroy our national back-up for the defense of liberty on the souls of those lost to madmen.
Ben Franklin wrote a very succinct piece that applies to our situation better than any other thing I've read: I paraphrase..........
"THOSE WILLING TO SACRIFICE A LIBERTY FOR A TEMPORARY BIT OF (so called) SECURITY DESERVE NEITHER LIBERTY NOR FREEDOM".
Missouri used initiated referendum to place an Obama (Davis) Care no authorization measure on the Nov 06 ballot. It passed by a margin nearly identical to the vote for a companion measure on the ballot in 2010 ...........70 some %!
