Armed By Law

*”It’s sad to say that weapons will always be in the hands of criminals. Time can attest to that. However, with an armed and skilled public, when the “crazies” attempt to use their bad judgment, an armed public will be there to see that order and safety remain. Police are good at their jobs for the most part, but they cannot be everywhere they need to be in a millisecond, and that’s all a criminal needs to change history. It’s been proven when a criminal thinks people around him are armed, he/ she is less likely to engage, and thereby resulting in his/her own demise.

An armed people keeps the other guy’s weapon holstered. History has shown that “gun control” only limits the actions of society to act when part of it’s society is acting out. I understand restrictions are needed, but so are weapons- guns save lives. Sadly they also take lives. It’s at present a necessary evil. But as being armed we must use good sense and knowing that once we draw down and fire, there is no take-backs. Can you imagine a society where only the police and criminals are armed? And finally, what if a military foreign or domestic was to endanger you or your family? Who but an armed person could stand with you against such tyranny? And lest we forget, law enforcement has it’s good people, but so many now have fallen victim to “trigger happy ” and possibly scared cops. We don’t need these undetected and unskilled-judgment police shooting our loved ones unnecessarily- stay armed, stay safe and have faith.” -Moraldiplomat

Our country’s Founders, though at odds with each other about many matters, were united in their belief that private citizens, armed with their own firearms, were vital to a free nation.

Anti-Federalist icon Patrick Henry, in his famous “give me liberty or give me death” address to Virginia’s Second Revolutionary Convention on March 23, 1775, underscored the importance of an armed citizenry when he declared:

“They tell us … we are weak-unable to cope with so formidable an adversary [as the British]. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Three million people, armed in the holy cause of liberty … are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us.”

The Census Bureau estimates that the population of the colonies in 1700 was 2.1 million, and that by 1780 it reached 2.9 million. Henry’s reference in 1775 to “three million people, armed in the holy cause of liberty” clearly encompassed all competent citizens, not merely those qualified by age and gender for militia service.

Years later, when the Constitution was considered, Henry further expressed his unequivocal support of the individual right to keep and bear arms. During Virginia’s ratification convention he objected to the omission of a clause in the proposed Constitution that would forbid the disarming of individual citizens (the Second Amendment was adopted to solve that problem). “The great object,” he declared, “is that every man be armed…. Everyone who is able may have a gun.”

Thomas Paine, who voiced the colonists’ demands for freedom in his famous pamphlet Common Sense (1776), wrote in an earlier essay entitled “Thoughts on Defensive War” (1775):

“The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property.”

And in The Federalist, No. 28, Alexander Hamilton stated: “If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government.”

In essay 29 of The Federalist, Hamilton further observed that “little more can reasonably be aimed at with respect to the people at large than to have them properly armed and equipped,” since “this will not only lessen the calls for military establishments, but if circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude that army an never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to hem in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their rights and those of their fellow citizens.”

In a similar spirit, James Madison pointed out in The Federalist, No. 46, that “notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms,” since, were the people armed and organized into militia, “the throne of every tyranny in Europe would be speedily overturned in spite of the legions which surround it.”

On June 18, 1789, 10 days after James Madison proposed the Bill of Rights in the House of Representatives, Tench Coxe, a Federalist and friend of Madison, published in Philadelphia’s Federal Gazette (under the pen name “A Pennsylvanian”) what Steven Halbrook describes as “probably the most complete exposition of the Bill of Rights to be published during its ratification period.”

Coxe’s analysis included this comment: “As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.” “In short,” Halbrook states, “what is now the Second Amendment was designed to guarantee the right of the people to have ‘their private arms’ to prevent tyranny and to overpower an abusive standing army or select militia [such as today’s National Guard].”

It is worth noting that Coxe sent a copy of his article, with a cover letter, to Madison, and that the father of the Constitution expressed no objection to his comments. Rather than disagreeing that the proposed amendment protected the possession and use of “private arms,”

Madison stated in his reply that ratification of the entire package of amendments “will however be greatly favored by explanatory strictures of a healing tendency, and is therefore already indebted to the co-operation of your pen.” Halbrook points out that a “search of the literature of the time reveals that no writer disputed or contradicted Coxe’s analysis that became what the Second Amendment protected.

Apocalypse? (photos)

I’ve been thinking about what some have already forgotten about; and that’s the victims and possibly those that lost not only their homes, pets and belongings, but their very lives in the recent hurricanes. Ya know recently, long before Hurricane Harvey devastated the Texas costs, I asked an Army (disabled vet) acquittance of mine and straight out, I asked him if he believed in an eventual apocalypse. And he stated, “Honestly, No.” That was pretty much it. That ended right there. Oh he didn’t mind me asking, but he’s not one of those “end of the world” people, nor a “bug out” type believer. As an Army fellow, he pretty much trusts the gov’t daily that feeds him his pain pills and pays for ALL his medical needs and issues as he has several.

In thinking about what he went through in several countries, I thought, “well, in a way, he had his apocalyptic moments in several regions of the world.” And now that he is back home, in the States, does he now feel like he cannot be touched? Can we as a people, having experienced so many sorrows and failures from a broad range of sources, do we still feel “it can’t come here?” Well, speaking about the word “apocalypse;” I hate to even use the word nowadays because it has been given a newer meaning. Most of the time, people hear the word and immediately think: Zombie, Nuclear War, and things that (God-forbid) may not or won’t ever be on the menu. However, with the escalation of tension between countries these days, and the ability to get more dangerous materials, well….it’s not a matter of if, and with the thought of an EMP, real (weapon related) or man-made; and the technology to manipulate and literally steer devastating weather to a certain point on the map, it’s easy to realize this is a new world, with new and secretly discreet ways of initiating them. People end up with their indoctrinated minds believing God is to blame, Mother nature acting up, accidents happen, or simply another earth change that for some reason is yours and my fault. But when will these possible threats be utilized?

Further, will it be on U.S. soil? Will it be from a foreign power? Will the U.S. gov’t be a part of a true conspiracy to achieve a grander design? We cannot discredit conspiracy theorists too quickly, not since many now have been proven true; many have actually been “in your face.” No longer (for some reason) do the PTB fear the public, oddly enough, a very well armed public. How do you confront that and win? Through devastating disasters! When the sh-t is going to hit the fan, if you’re not listening to God, YOU need a plan, a plan that many in Texas and Florida did not. Those poor people are now at the mercy of gov’t funded “assistance.” That’s NOT where you want to be.

I wanted to share the following photos with you. You may have seen these same ones, maybe some that are worse. But I ask you, what if your house “use to be” located in one of the pictures? Is it really a good idea to live near a beach? I have so many questions, and so do others. I pray that the conspiracy people are wrong when they say that FEMA and other agencies have taken the refugees from these torn places and brought them to FEMA camps, abandoned walmart building for extermination (depopulation control) of undesirables. I like to think so. But……..you judge….let’s prove it one one truth or another eh? God bless and keep listening to the Lord, He will direct your steps and keep you safe.

‘Many people have had their “apocalypse” ‘

Thank God For Hurricanes

Hurricanes are awful, but at least we have some warning they are coming unlike quick-forming tornadoes or sudden earthquakes. We knew about Harvey for days before it landed in coastal Texas. Hurricane Irma was bearing down on Florida but would not make landfall until the nearing weekend.

See, a hurricane gives you about a week to prepare. You can shop for extra food, board up the windows, and even get out of Dodge.

Even then some people weren’t prepared, they decided to wait until the last minute. For many in Texas and Florida, a “SHTF” situation occurred for them. It’s just a matter of time before one of those moments get near you.

As a last minute prep-work; thousands of people showed up to their grocery store and found it looking like this:

That’s an actual photo from my cousin’s Facebook page she posted right before Hurricane Harvey landed at the coast of Texas. You think she learned a lesson in preparedness?

Had she asked me beforehand I would have said that, at the very least, she should have:

  • Backup power/Heat
  • Extra water
  • Extra medications and essentials
  • Bug out bag
  • A place and means to escape to if you need to get the heck out

Luckily there is good news: You DO have time to prepare for anything – as long as you start now.

Cashless Society

The armies of the cashless society have trapped the heroic but over-matched cash note in a classic pincer movement…

Governments advance against the entrenched center…

The banks move against one vulnerable flank…Now the credit card companies have sprung against the other.

Visa is now offering small merchants using its payment systems $10,000 each to help them upgrade those systems.

In exchange for this “gift”… they can no longer accept cash payments.
Visa Inc. has a new offer for small merchants: take thousands of dollars from the card giant to upgrade their payment technology. In return, the businesses must stop accepting cash.

The company unveiled the initiative as part of a broader effort to steer Americans away from using old-fashioned paper money. Visa says it is planning to give $10,000 apiece to up to 50 restaurants and food vendors to pay for their technology and marketing costs, on the condition the businesses pledge to start a journey to cashless-ness.

But what motivation lies back of it?

As is so often the case in this fallen and human vale of sin… manna.

The payment networks wanting to kill cash (and checks!) as competitors to their oh so terrific (and fee-gouging) credit and debit cards.

Those oh so terrific and gouging credit and debit card fees run to about 2% of total transaction costs.

Multiplied millions of times a day, that 2% accumulates… rapidly… and in Visa’s favor.

Visa is trying to cony in on economic sectors running heretofore on cash… like food vending and parking services.

But also on sectors traditionally run by check… like rent payments. About 35% of all U.S. households are renter-occupied. We don’t know what percentage of their occupants sign a monthly rent check. But we hazard it’s handsome.

In Visa’s vision, the venerable old rent check would fall like the dodo. And a digital phoenix would rise in its place.

From Visa’s self-interested perspective, here is a vast field of untapped profit — for now.

Cash will vanish not so much because it’s illegal… but because elites convince us of its inconvenience.

Going digital… could practically eliminate petty crime, free up resources and save forests of trees into the bargain (at least that’s what they lie about and sell to you).

And that’s how elites will peddle it…

The surest way to lull someone into complacency is to offer a “convenience” which quickly becomes habit and impossible to do without.

The convenience factor is becoming more prevalent, and consumers are moving from cash to digital payments just as they moved from gold and silver coins to paper money a hundred years ago.

Governments and banks assault cash by day and by night.

Now with the credit card companies escalating their own offensive, valiant cash could soon enough be surrounded… all escape routes closed… forced to accept terms…

And the white flag that ultimately goes up will also be the flag of your personal financial privacy… and YOU will live, (our children certainly) to more than regret that decision.

Impending Judgment?

Ya know, I was thinking about how easy it is for us all to see a problem coming. Regardless of what you believe, want to argue or debate; the truth is, we can see what could be perceived as a judgment; certainly a trial or tribulation. Possibly even a death sentence for many. Will it be you?

Back in Noah’s day, people were warned, but sadly, they paid no heed to Noah, nor God. They repented not. And yes, they saw the impending judgment, the rain, the waters of the deep, flood from above! And still, even though they saw the danger, did they repent? Was it too late? Did any humans survive? Only eight…..only eight.

Today, we saw, as sadly as it was, Hurricane Harvey, and now Hurricane Irma, with the possibility of more coming. And as we have seen from the past, Hurricanes, whether manufactured by evil men’s technology, mother nature rebelling mankind- unforgiving to millions, climate change…whatever you wish or have been indoctrinated to imagine; the point is….have you even thought of repenting? Telling God you’re sorry you have flaws, failures, have literally rebelled against Him? What if you repented? What if….the storm was a little more gentler when it comes your way. Ya know, as the days continue it seems the name of Jesus becomes to many a bad word, a name to not mention. Oh we say, “God” (and there’s only One) but it to some it’s vague. Why are so many afraid to even mention Jesus’ name?

And……….yet we can say a thousand times the name of a monster, the name of impending judgment- 😦

Maybe it’s time we call out on that name again. What do you think?

The Lord is coming back and I believe it’s soon….not by and by, but soon. Live every day as if it were as soon as tomorrow.

Luke 21

22 “For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. 24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.  25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. ”

Luke 17

26 “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. ”

Luke 21

7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass? 8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. 9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. 10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: 11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. 12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake. ”

Robin Hood’s Social Being

In most versions of the story, Robin Hood was a nobleman. He first got on the wrong side of the law by poaching deer off the royal hunting grounds. He responded by adopting a radical view of the government, protesting the taxes being levied to pay for the war in the Holy Land (the Crusades)

Does this taxation increase to pay for wars abroad scenario sound familiar? Seems nothing regarding wars never changes. Anyway, he banded with likewise tax resisters, survivalists, and so-called gangsters, all men, and camped in the woods. He supported the legitimate King Richard over the English government ruling in his absence, making Robin Hood a Tory.

If Robin Hood lived today, he would probably be considered extremely conservative, reading gun fanciers’ magazines (the modern equivalent of the longbow), loudly proclaiming his right to hunt, dressing in camo, driving a van, loving freedoms and just laws of the land and using the sort of political action through violence against the evil machinations of the powers that be- he would be known as a leader of a revolution, for the people, by the people and with the people. Basically appreciating and enforcing the Constitution of the U.S.

The idea that Robin Hood promoted a type of socialism seems to come from the saying “rob from the rich and give to the poor.”

That’s not exactly socialism, but it is a sort of redistributionism associated with many clans the world over. That’s not exactly what he did. Robin Hood took back that which was taken from the countryside’s people.

And, If the state isn’t on your side, you need to bribe the local state sympathizers to gain their favor so they won’t roll over on you and turn you into the supposed elected powers. Seems that some “people” know more about redistribution than those who mention the idea.

The easiest way to aid aid the people is to (take back that which was stolen from the people) distribute food to starving peasants, torture unfair task masters in front of their employees, toss bags of money out, etc.

The Australian bush rangers did that, as did pirates when they raided government/merchant ships, so did the Japanese yakuza at one time; we can put Robin Hood in the same category as well, an ultra-rightwing groups. Thumbs up for Robin Hood! True leaders must be willing to go against the grain for the sake of the less fortunate, helping those in need without a regard to repay. Not a political idealist full of lies and flattery; hypocrisy.

We ARE on the side of the underdog.

Still On The Robin Hood Kick

Is Robin Hood a criminal or a hero?

Robin Hood is both. Translation= Robin Hood would have made a true America Hero.

He is a criminal in the eyes of the corrupted rulers of his time.

He is a hero to the town folk and the public, for distributing what should be theirs.

It can be agreed a hero is someone who regards and protects the people. It can be agreed a criminal is someone who works outside or against the set law.

It can then be agreed Robin Hood is someone who regards and protects the people, but does so in a way outside or against the set law.

A criminal is someone has committed a crime, however not all laws are moral or just. For example, the Holocaust was an official government program as was Apartheid.

Robin Hood stole from the wealthy because they gained their money unfairly because of their positions in the government. They got to keep their money because of tax exemptions, but the only way to keep the country running without removing those was to increase taxation on middle-to-lower class to outrageous levels.

By doing this Robin Hood broke the law and therefore became a criminal. Robin Hood did however become a hero of the citizens because he returned money that should have been theirs to begin with.

We need more Robin Hood-like minded people stepping up!
