EXCLUSIVE: NJ Gun Rights Proponents Reach Out to Colorado Recall Organizers

With numerous new guns laws put in place in New Jersey last year and even more gun control being pushed right now, gun rights proponents in the state are reaching out to Colorado recall organizers.

On September 10, 2013, Coloradans successfully recalled state senators John Morse (D-Colorado Springs) and Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) over their support of draconian gun control measures.

Breitbart News spoke with Official Colorado Recall Spokeswoman Jennifer Kerns on March 18. She said organizers in New Jersey have begun inquiring about the structure of those recalls as they consider organizing their own.

She said they have spoken with Colorado Recall founder Tim Knight, “who gave them advice and a road map, of sorts, of what they can expect to face.”

For all the differences between Colorado and New Jersey, Kerns said there are numerous similarities–including the fact that one of the biggest proponents of gun control in NJ is senate president Steve Sweeney (D-Gloucester). One of the biggest proponents of gun control in CO was senate president John Morse, whom Coloradans successfully recalled last year.

Watch This Democrat Bring Out Her Inner Nazi, While Onlookers Gasp

A Florida zoning board member brought a community meeting to an awkward halt when she used a stiff-armed gesture to compare a village official to Adolph Hitler.

The Florida Democrat, Marcia Radosevich, was a supporter of Hillary Clinton in 2006, and gave $5000 dollars to her PAC.

She resigned soon after this video came out, which was reported in the Palm Beach Post newspaper. Interestingly, it is never mentioned within any of these news articles that she is a Democrat and Hillary Clinton supporter. If a Republican had done this, this would be national news. Since its a Democrat, and Hillary supporter, she gets a free pass.

IRS Tea Party Targeting Leads Directly To Obama

According to a new report issued by the congressional Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, it was high-level IRS staffers based in Washington and not “rogue” IRS agents in Cincinnati that targeted Tea Party groups. According to dozens of emails released by the report, Lois Lerner and literally dozens of upper level employees of the IRS not only knew about the targeting of conservative groups, but directed it. Lerner, in one email, even went so far as to call Tea Party groups “very dangerous.”

In other words, the targeting of Tea Party groups was orchestrated from Washington—literally a walking distance from the Oval Office.

Are we to believe Obama was not involved—being only steps away—when he repeatedly criticized the Tea Party, identifying them as his enemies, calling them Tea Baggers?

But here is the key to the coverup:

Obama directed the IRS to attack the Tea Party in order to affect the 2012 election. More than likely, if the Tea Party had not been weakened, Barack Hussein Obama would not be President of the United States today.

Obama And The Democrats Plot To Control America

Barack Obama’s presidency will come to an end.  The legacy of pain he will leave behind will not — at least for years to come. He and his fellow Democrats plan to keep their grip on the levers of power-even if they lose control of Congress and the White House. And they will do so with “invisible hands” gone but not forgotten.

Every first-term president has a single compelling desire: to win a second term.  But for Obama and his liberal allies to accomplish a second major goal, to “fundamentally transform America,” requires more than two terms. Their agenda depends on fundamentally transforming ourgovernment and how its vast powers will be deployed.

How was this done?

The trillion-dollar so called “stimulus” bill was the first major step to vastly increase our spending and deficits. It was a sign of things to come. Budget-breaking binges have followed with no serious efforts to control our massive federal debt.  The Democrats have run up more red ink than all previous administrations combined.

The entitlement crisis has been a crisis that has not been allowed to go to waste.  Under Obama’s feeble economy and sputtering “recovery” (the weakest in modern history), spending on welfare, food stamps, and disability payments have soared. Hooking people onto the government IV line is an excellent way to increase dependency and   the number of future dependable Democrats. It is also an excellent way to bankrupt America.

The sequester was a mere Band-Aid that has recently been ripped off.

The wound remains unhealed as interest payments on the debt will come to dwarf spending on other priorities.  As interest rates rise from the abnormally low current levels, the problem will worsen.  This will limit the ability of future presidents and Congresses to change spending priorities. For example, interest payments are on track to exceed defense spending. Will a future president be able to ramp up defense spending in the face of a massive constituency addicted to entitlements? Already our defense budget is being slashed (the Army drops to a pre-World War Two level; The Navy is shrinking to fit a bathtub — or thereabouts) while our adversaries are boosting their militaries, the Russian bear emerges from hibernation and runs rampant,  and Iran is on the path to get the Bomb. Such are the fruits of flexibility. At least Obama kept one promise — too bad it was to  Putin.

 Since Obama and many of his fellow Democrats (now that Blue Dog Democrats have gone the way of the Dodo bird) consider defense spending as some sort of pagan ritual or so “19th Century” as Secretary of State John Kerry might phrase it, they can then consider their mission accomplished: the permanent weakening of America.

Obama and Congressional Democrats have handcuffed all future presidents and endangered Americans yet to be born.

They can move onto what they consider the most dire threat in the world — climate change — and commence ladling out taxpayer money to their cronies behind green schemes.

Another step to control the future of America was the passing of the Affordable Care  Act (the “ACA”) through means fair and foul (mostly foul), as Shakespeare might characterize the mix of bribes, earmarks and legislative tricks employed to impose this misbegotten mess on America. While Obama brandishes executive power, waivers and enforcement discretion to keep the ACA on life support until after the mid-terms (and maybe beyond, who knows with this Rube Goldberg contraption?) the insurance and medical industries are being damaged — perhaps beyond repair — the intention all along.

One-sixth of the economy has been victimized by the wizards of Washington, and America will never be the same.  Opponents should not be too sanguine about ObamaCare’s repeal. As  websites are fixed, as more and more people latch onto subsidies, as Obama uses taxpayer money to bail our insurance companies, and people with preexisting conditions gain coverage, a larger constituency to keep the ACA in operation is developing. The result: worse medical care and higher premiums for many Americans.  Medicare is being gutted to expand Medicaid, fewer medical advances as the economics dissuade companies from pursuing them courtesy of the medical device tax, and fewer doctors as the current ones leave the profession and potential ones decide government-run healthcare creates a hostile workplace environment.

But it gets worse.

The ACA relies on the Independent Payment Advisory Board (“IPAB”)to take medical decision-making away from doctors and patients to curb Medicare spending. The Democrats endowed this 15-member board with vast powers and, unusually, shielded it from control by future Congresses and presidents. AsKristin Leighty writes for the American Academy of Orthopaedic  Surgeons website:

The IPAB will have authority to make direct modifications to the Medicare program unless Congress overrides its proposed changes. In addition, a super majority would be required in the Senate to overturn the IPAB’s recommendations.

Although the IPAB’s proposals are technically presented to Congress, the Board retains extensive control. PPACA “fast-tracks” the recommendations, forcing Congress to consider them quickly and to match any proposed cuts with equivalent reductions elsewhere in the federal budget.  (snip)

If the panel cannot come to a decision on spending, its power is automatically transferred to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, who is still required to make the cuts necessary to meet the mandated spending targets. The Secretary’s proposal must then be implemented unless Congress takes action under the expedited procedure set forth in the law. Therefore, prior proposals to simply defund IPAB will not prevent reductions from occurring.

In an article featured in Politico Pro last month, Rep. Roe echoed his belief that “the House should not give up its constitutional authority to control these things” while also noting that the public has no avenue to dispute IPAB decisions.

It will be very challenging for a super-majority (67 Senators) to be reached in the Senate to override any decisions this panel makes. Furthermore, the ability to “fast track” their decisions means Congress will have a very limited time period to overrule the IPAB’s decisions. As Congressman Poe notes, the public will have no role (of course). The party of the people would not deign to take their views into account.

These “death panels” will be very hard to kill.

As our great modern sage, Ronald Reagan, declared, “a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.”  And this is exactly what Obama and the Democrats in Congress planned all along. They will exert their power long after they have left office.

Optimists think that the same tools Obama used to force the ACA onto America can be used to de facto repeal many of its measures (see Brian Callanan’s “A Legal Poison Pill for ObamaCare”) as well as other executive actions he has taken,  such as hikes in minimum wage and new overtime pay rules.

Perhaps…but it would be far truer to conservative principles to repeal the law, and that would clearly require a sweep of both houses of Congress and the presidency. Also, as Victor Davis Hanson recently wrote (“How Hard Will We Be On A Future Post-Obama President”), a Republican president using the same tools to kill the ACA that Obama used to keep it alive, if not thriving, will be excoriated.  And, as previously noted, there may be a large enough constituency in favor of the ACA and other executive actions — and enough major changes made in our institutions — to make repealing it very challenging. Will any President be strong enough to take increased pay away from voters?

It is a frightening prospect but America may be stuck with this “reform” for many years to come.

The Democrats planned it to be this way and they may well succeed.

Harry Reid and the Death of the Filibuster

Democrats who are unconcerned with an Iranian nuclear weapon also were blissful when Senate Majority Leader trigged his own “nuclear option” abolishing the filibuster in most appointments. As Paul Kane wrote in the Washington Post:

Democrats used a rare parliamentary move to change the rules so that federal judicial nominees and executive-office appointments can advance to confirmation votes by a simple majority of senators, rather than the 60-vote supermajority that has been the standard for nearly four decades.

Of course, when a Republican was president Harry Reid, Barack Obama  and many other Democrats who applauded Reid’s maneuver spoke reverentially about how important the filibuster was for democracy.

That was then and this is now. All history began anew when Obama ascended to the Oval Office. Besides, hypocrisy among Democratic politicians is almost a job requirement (book recommendation: Do As I Say (Not As I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy).

To further control America’s future, the Democrats need to control the third branch of government: the judiciary.  Checks and balances to them may vaguely refer to that pleather thing stuck in a drawer somewhere, not principles enshrined in our Constitution that brave people have died defending.

Now Obama will have his radical appointees to important posts in government easily confirmed (history shows most Democrat Senators are invertebrate when it comes to obeying Obama). A future Republican president — if we will ever see one again — will have quite the Augean Stables to clean upon assuming office.

However, the real import of this action by Reid, is to allow Federal judges of Obama’s own choosing to be confirmed. The first goal was to take over the key U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit — the court that reviews many cases related to federal law and regulations. But it won’t end there.

Decisions handed down have very long lifespans as the principle of stare decisisand the power of precedent limit the chance to overturn them. This is particularly true if other federal courts become stacked with Obama nominees. And they will be.

These are lifetime appointments and they will be responsible for interpreting the law and respecting the Constitution.  Anyone think the federal courts won’t be stuck for years with lawyers in Obama’s image?

As lawyers are wont to say, “res ipsa loquitur” (the “thing speaks for itself”).

Liberals are already pushing the idea  that older liberal Supreme Court Justices should retire (“ageism” is fine as long as liberals do it) so Obama and Reid can replace them with  younger and presumably even more liberal ones,and thus keep the Obama era alive for decades to come.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

The creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was one of the craftiest if not most subversive action Democrats took when they controlled Congress. The CFPB is responsible for consumer protection in the financial sector. That sounds benign but the agency is running wild, using — in a widely criticized way — vague disparate impact “analysis” to coerce businesses to extend credit to less than creditworthy customers, auto dealers to sell cars to people who may not be able to afford the payments on them, and the like.

Can this agency be reined in? No — or certainly not easily.

Usually Congress can use the power of the purse when an agency has “gone rogue.” However, in an unprecedented way, the funding for the CFPB comes not from Congress but from the Federal Reserve, and its amount is determined by a fixed formula. The Federal Reserve cannot turn down requests from the CFPB for funds — it’s “guaranteed.”   Similar to the IPAB, CFPB is designed to withstand future Republican Congresses and Presidents.

America can expect to bear the brunt of this guaranteed freedom from oversight for years to come. The two main politicians who crafted this legislation (Senator Dodd and Congressman Frank) have retired; they, along with Obama, Reid, and Nancy Pelosi will serenely watch their handiwork wreak havoc for years to come — political Typhoid Marys.

There are myriad ways the Democrats have abused their power that will impact all of us in the decades ahead. The above examples are hardly exhaustive. One could add the ruining of alliances, the betrayals of friends, the possible closing of Guantanamo Bay by executive order (the prison there, because of the unique legal status of the land it sits on, offers singular advantages for America); the move to ask the Senate to approve military strikes in Syria — a precedent that may hamstring future presidents who actually take their Commander-in-Chief duties seriously; dramatic actions to legalize millions of illegal immigrants with the ultimate goal of granting them citizenship and voting rights (thereby making a permanent Democratic majority a serious possibility-demographics is destiny); the bankruptcy of the coal industry; and the expected explosion of federal land being forever placed off limits for energy exploration and development via the largest federal land grab in history as Obama ”cements” his legacy.

One could expect the political equivalent of a fireworks show to commence after the midterm elections when Obama can indulge his wish to “go Bulworth” in his second term with a cavalcade of executive orders, waivers, delays, enforcement discretion, regulations — call it Obamageddon.

When Obama leaves the Oval Office and is free to enjoy many years of fame and fortune, he will have taken many steps that will harm Americans long afterwards. These actions will fulfill his boast that he would “fundamentally transform America” — probably the only promise he will have not broken.

The worst is yet to come.

Martial Law Cannot Be Far Away Now! Massive Car To Car Warrantless Search In DC Region

The ‘Police State’ in America officially exploded into the DC Capitol Region as hundreds of cars were stopped in a massive roadblock and a warrantless car to car search ensued for alleged bank robbers and drivers were met by the likes of what we see below. One woman had to vomitand was ordered to close her door. The story unfolds below. Live cell phone video of ‘the event’ is also below.

I270-manhunt3

As described, these searches were in no way consensual and were performed with the motorists under duress. Nothing ordered at gunpoint can ever be considered voluntary. Not surprisingly, we have not seen a report of anyone brave enough to refuse the hostile violation of the 4th amendment.

Is THIS really what we want our country and our society to be like? If so, this is proof that the terrorists won…America has turned into a police state.

ROCKVILLE, MD — Thousands of motorists were brought to a standstill when police conducted a massive roadblock to find three crime suspects.  Twelve lanes of traffic were shut down and swarms of armed government agents combed through a giant traffic jam performing warrantless vehicle-to-vehicle searches.

The busy Tuesday morning commute was abruptly halted just after 10:00 a.m. on March 11th.  One driver told ABC News that traffic stopped and he witnessed 30 police cars pass on the shoulders of I-270 near Rockville.  “Then, when I saw a wall of police officers with automatic weapons approaching our cars, it was apparent that something serious was taking place.”

I270-manhunt4

Miles of cars were stranded and motorists were confined to their vehicles, with no explanation, for over an hour.  Confused people exiting their vehicles were met with hostility from the police.  WTOP reported that one woman leaned out her door to vomit, she was shouted at by cops to close her door.

“It’s just awful,” motorist Carmel Desroche to WJLA, describing the traffic jam.  “I’ve never seen both directions of 270 like this before.  It was painful.”

While stuck in traffic, motorists were approached by armed agents and ordered at gunpoint to submit to warrantless searches of the interior of their vehicles.  The Washington Post interviewed an innocent driver named Don Troop who experienced the ordeal.

A group of officers made its way to his car and other cars around him. “They were just walking along saying: ‘Pop the trunk! Pop the trunk!’”

He overheard a man in a truck next to him call out to another motorist: The police are looking for bank robbers. A short time later, about nine officers approached his car — including state police in tan uniforms, county police in dark uniforms and at least one plainclothes officer wearing a yellow tie.

Among their commands to motorists that Troop heard:

“Stay in your car.”

“Pop the trunk.”

“Get your hands on the steering wheel. Get you hands up where we can see them.”

Obama Alien Invasion Thumb

CIA Spy: Alien Contact To Be Announced By Obama; Secret Deal With Putin/China Over Dollar Collapse, UN Troops In US

 

Ronald Reagan once famously wondered what would happen if the world were presented with the prospect of an alien invasion. It was Reagan’s belief that humanity would be able to put aside all of their differences and come together to oppose such a common threat. We may soon see if he was correct.

 

If the accomplishments of the Obama administration can be summed up in three words, those words would be failure, scandal, and treason. The president and his toadies had to repeatedly lie to the people of the United States in order to pass the massive fail known as Obamacare, they have been lying to the American people and stonewalling Congress over what really happened in Benghazi for the last 18 months, and they are currently lying and/or pleading the fifth over the IRS’s targeting of Tea Party groups. Let’s not forget “Operation Fast and Furious,” NSA spying on American citizens, the targeting of journalists, unconstitutional recess appointments, illegal military actions in Libya, and the unconstitutional and extrajudicial killings of Anwar al-Alawki, Samir Khan, and al-Alawki’s 16-year-old son Abdulrahman who was killed in the CIA drone strike two weeks after his father for no particular reason.

 

Talk of impeachment is rampant in the halls of Congress, ordinary Americans are waking up all across the country; and they are angry. Even liberals are beginning to see the dangers posed by Barack Obama. Liberal constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley says that the United States is in a “constitutional crisis,” and the ACLU has called Obama “judge, jury and executioner.”

 

The last time there were anti-Obama protests in Washington DC, 1.8 million bikers roared through the town and patriots tore down the “Barrycades” that were preventing the nation’s heroes from reaching their monuments; the ones that they earned with their sweat, their devotion to country, and their blood. When protesters started marching towards the White House Obama got into Marine One and fled the nation’s capital. On May 16th millions of Americans are set to converge in Washington DC for Operation American Spring, and Obama can see the handwriting on the wall. He desperately needs a win to avoid impeachment and conviction by the Senate for high crimes and misdemeanors against the people of the United States.

 

According to former CIA spy Dr. Jim Garrow, Obama intends to quash all of the scandals plaguing his administration by announcing to the world that humanity has been in contact with extraterrestrials, and that he (Obama) has been selected to speak for humanity. Garrow says that this announcement will be timed to come after an imminent currency collapse orchestrated by Russia and China in a secret deal approved by Obama, who has not given up on his plans to wipe out up to 300 million Americans with an electromagnetic pulse – a triple threat from a POTUS known to double-down when his back is against the wall.

 

An EMP would send the US back to the 1800’s without the infrastructure to support 314 million people. Overnight those people would be too busy trying to stay alive, too busy fighting hunger and disease to fight the absolute tyranny Obama and his masters seek to impose on the United States. With the nation crippled after attacks from numerous vectors, including terrorist attacks within the US perpetrated by Chinese, North Korean, and Iranian terrorists, Obama intends to complete his stranglehold on the country by asking for UN forces to keep the peace and suppress dissent. The irony is that those forces will be made up largely of our communist and Muslim enemies. I suppose we’ll be busy fighting them too.

 

Obama’s plan to set off an EMP last fall was thwarted by three brave flag and general officers of the United States military, men in charge of our nuclear security, who were subsequently fired from their positions when they refused to give Obama access to those weapons. According to Dr. Garrow, one of the weapons Obama tried to steal was detonated at sea in the Atlantic Ocean causing a 2.2 magnitude earthquake that was verified by the US Geological Survey. Two more weapons are still under the control of patriotic members of the United States military.

No Joke: The LAPD Has Added A Lamborghini To Their Fleet

The Los Angeles Police Department added a Lamborghini Gallardo to their fleet of cars this week and is proudly showing off the exotic sports vehicle on social media.

Tweeting with the hashtag “#LAPDLambo,” authorities are showcasing the donated vehicle, but it’s unlikely it will ever hit the highway.

Instead, police say they will use the exceptionally fast car to serve at charitable events.

Nevertheless, photographs of the Lamborghini are making waves on social media. Here are a few of the pictures:

U.S. Military Hires Terror-Tied Muslims

U.S. Military: Hires Terror-Tied Muslim Chaplains

(Clarion Project) — The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhoodentity, is proudly announcing that the U.S. military is again using their chaplains for active-duty service after a 15-year lull.

ISNA has a well-documented extremist history. In 1991, the Muslim Brotherhood listed ISNA as one of its main fronts. Declassified FBI memos said ISNA is a component of the Muslim Brotherhood, who sees its “work in America as a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.”

In 2007, the U.S. government labeled ISNA a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism-financing trial involving the Holy Land Foundation funneling money to Hamas. The label was upheldin 2009 because of “ample” evidence linking ISNA to Hamas. Last year, ISNA’s Canadian affiliate lost its status as a charity because of its accounting discrepancies and links to Pakistani terrorists.

The two chaplains endorsed by ISNA are Sgt. Mustapha Rahouchen, who will be used by the U.S. Army, and Captain Rafael Lantiqua, who was chosen by the U.S. Air Force.

In April 2013, the Clarion Project broke the story that the U.S. Air Force Chaplain Corps had paid ISNA almost $5,000 for two advertisements in its magazine. When we contacted the Air Force about ISNA’s ties to the Brotherhood, we received the following response:

“The Islamic Society of North America is one of many religious organizations recognized by the Department of Defense that satisfy the ecclesiastical requirements to endorse qualified religious ministry professionals to serve as chaplains within the Military Departments.”

This story speaks to the broader threat posed by Islamist involvement in Muslim chaplain programs.

The Muslim chaplaincy services for the military and prisons were started by Abdurrahman Alamoudi, who was convicted in 2003 on terrorism-related charges. He later admitted that he was a secret member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

ISNA is one of the groups that the U.S. military trusts to certify Muslim chaplains. The military’s former endorsing agent was Dr. Louay Safi, an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial of Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Sami al-Arian.  Al-Arian, like Alamoudi, later admitted to having been a Brotherhood operative.

Safi wrote in 2003, “The war against the apostates [non-believers of Islam] is carried out not to force them to accept Islam, but to enforce the Islamic law and maintain order.”

He continued: “It is up to the Muslim leadership to assess the situation and weigh the circumstances as well as the capacity of the Muslim community before deciding the appropriate type of jihad. At one stage, Muslims may find that jihad through persuasion or peaceful resistance is the best and most effective method to achieve just peace.”

In 2004, he said that the “assertion by ‘world leaders’ that the war on terrorism is not a war on Islam is nothing but a piece of propaganda and disinformation that was meant to appease Western Muslims and to maintain the coalition against terrorism.”

He was later suspended from working on U.S. military bases because of a criminal investigation. Safi is now working with the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood.

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a Muslim activist opposed to Islamism who served in the U.S. Navy, wrote in 2010 that a friend of his in the U.S. Army recently told him of his troubling interaction with an active-duty Muslim chaplain.

His friend asked the imam what his response would be if a Muslim soldier asked him if Islam prevented him from participating in combat against fellow Muslims. The answer should have been easy: Serve your country as you swore to do. Instead, the imam said he’d tell the soldier that he’s not qualified to answer the question and to ask ISNA.

Former Defense Department Inspector-General Joseph Schmitz was alarmed enough by loopholes in the system of vetting chaplains that allowed extremist organizations like ISNA’s involvement that he wrote a letter in 2010 describing his efforts to close them. He revealed in 2004 that he urged the Pentagon to adopt a policy that would prevent extremist groups, Muslim or otherwise, from involvement in the chaplaincy program.

He said that a policy should disqualify groups that support violent sedition, have an endorsing agent with a criminal history, are on a terrorism watch-list or have leaders convicted on terrorism-related charges. The Armed Forces Chaplains Board rejected his advice because it was “legally problematic.”

Here’s what’s really “problematic”: The U.S. government says ISNA is a Muslim Brotherhood entity and labeled it an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism trial. That same government is using ISNA to pick military chaplains and is a top outreach partner of the U.S. government.
