   Greetings! Well, it’s been a whirlwind week and it’s difficult to keep up with everything that is happening, whether good or bad.

 

   Our State Legislature is back in session and busy writing more anti-gun bills to disarm us law-abiding citizens while writing other bills to assist law-breaking people who may or may not be citizens! To logical, common-sense people, that isn’t rational. But as is now obvious, there is a sect of our society that have proven themselves to be past the point of rational thinking. And we have a super-majority of them in the halls of the Sacramento Capitol building. The balance of them are all over California and are the people who voted these Leftists in!

  And of course, we can’t leave out the anarchists and “others” (I really have no polite words to describe them) who destroyed part of Washington D.C. last weekend after the inauguration of President Donald Trump. Those “women” (or whatever they call themselves) who spoke at the protest on Saturday, January 21st, were an embarrassment to the entire female gender, in my opinion. I don’t understand why they thought that speaking and acting so vile & disgusting would get them positive support from normal Americans, whether people agreed with abortion or not.  Maybe they’ll all sign up as the third gender per a bill now introduced in Sacramento. And this is a great tongue-in-cheek article about that march: Has anyone actually worked out yet what that Women’s March over the weekend was all about?  

    Hopefully, you’ve been paying attention to the national news the last couple of days and realize that this all could get real ugly and real quick.  I had planned on starting off with the update from the Oath Keepers on the events of last weekend in D.C., but decided instead to lead off with this current news – as it does/will affect us as firearm owners in one way or another. And one way may be having to defend ourselves from the lunatics in Sacramento and nationwide - in just about all ways you can imagine. The more havoc these “protesters” create, the more they are allowed to avoid punishment for unlawful acts, the bolder and more aggressive they will become – and the more danger we will all face.

    To keep up on the latest news using a website that does their job of fact-checking and exposing the truth, keep checking the Breitbart website. They update the news throughout the day and I have found them to be the most knowledgeable of the bunch. And no matter what you think of Alex Jones, the Infowars website also has some very significant articles, such as one below. *

 

    Those of us who have kids/grandkids/nieces/nephews who have been drawn to the dark side of this struggle by believing the protesters/anarchists propaganda, twisted facts and hypocrisy, will want to warn them that the “side” they have taken does not know who our kids are as individuals and frankly don’t care. I know we who are in this situation are heartbroken that they have become duped because of their gullibility of “idealism” and being led by their emotions instead of good judgement. (Those of us who do not find ourselves with this problem, undoubtedly know people who do and we need to pass this info along to them.)  Now it’s time for tough love. Many of these young people are still “reachable” and as the Proverbs declare, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”.   How many of us have strayed, but in the end come back to the truth? So don’t despair and give up – there is still this promise. But it WILL take our intervention whether our kids welcome it or not. Our job is to educate them to reality – they have the CHOICE of what path to take. (Ezekiel 3)

 

   Our kids are hanging with anarchists and elitists who will abandon them in a heartbeat when the SHTF – and it will. Are they ready/willing to have a police record for the rest of their life - or worse - because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people? Do they think their “side” strategically plans “strikes” to spare innocent civilians & property?  Hell, NO! Two cases in point: the limo that was set afire by the anarchists in D.C. was owned by a Muslim immigrant while Larry King had the windows smashed out of his limo that day while he was there on business. Ironically, these were 2 people that the Left should embrace. Do you think those domestic terrorists cared what property belonged to whom?  NO – they were just hell-bent on destruction. Anybody in the area was their enemy & target. That is their mindset. That is reality.  End of story.

 

  The Leftists/Progressives have the same excuse for every one of their “causes” – and it’s always appealing to the emotions of their audience – not the logic.  (And just for the record – we call out all of the RINO’s who participate with the Left as well!)  Listen carefully to the Left with a discerning ear and dissect their messages. Rarely will they discuss the topic in a logical, factual way. And as I’ve said before, emotions are an easy target for manipulators and controllers to aim at in order to influence the masses. And unfortunately, the masses fall right into their well laid traps because they listen to & watch all of the fake news media! (And I must question that if this TEMPORARY “ban” was implied to be against Jews/Christians, would the Left be protesting?)  Do you think these “protesters” actually research and read the backgrounds and facts surrounding the issues they are against? Do they even KNOW what they are “against”, can they articulate a reasonable “WHY” – and back it up with facts?  Based on the FACT that Trump’s Executive Order does not even MENTION the word “Muslim” (which is classic hypocrisy of the Left considering this text is from the CNN website which is known for hating all things Trump), the answer is a resounding NO!  And I read this EO text thoroughly as well as doing a search for the word “Muslim” in it.  Look at the signs at these “protests”, listen to the protester’s comments and to the talking heads on TV – and you’ll see the spin.  And I challenge these protesters to be as concerned about AMERICAN CITIZENS’ RIGHTS and SAFETY as they are of the NON-citizens who are entering our country – legally AND illegally!!!  REMEMBER – these are the SAME people who want to disarm YOU and ME of our firearms!!!  They also want open borders, to void the U.S. Constitution and have the working fools (us) support their sorry *sses.  THESE are the types that should all be on the firearm “No Buy” list!  Connect all of the dots for the big picture.

   In this day of internet availability and on-line information from all sides, there is NO REASON for ignorance. As Benjamin Franklin said, “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.”  I’d venture to say that most of the snowflakes have never even READ the U.S. Constitution nor studied it – nor do they care to.  All they are doing is responding as lemmings to the call of George Soros, CAIR and the like. I came from their “side” at one time so I know from whence I speak – and I know that many of you reading this have been a bleeding-heart liberal in the past as well. That’s why WE cannot be fooled & will call them out on their B.S. and ignorance and shut them down on the spot! And make NO mistake – these SAME people are the ones who are on the front lines of supporting Gun Control – which is another reason why all of these events affect us as firearm owners!

 

   And since our kids are on the opposite side of the law – and there’s a new Sheriff in town - they will be in physical danger should a “peaceful” protest suddenly take a situational turn for the worst.  With the Leftist “mob mentality” now in full force, that is more likely to happen.  Should President Trump say “ENOUGH” and call out the National Guard, it could be May 4, 1970 all over again (Kent State).  Yes – we all have a right to protest – but with limits.  Destroying property and hurting people does not fall under the First Amendment. There are rules to having protest and rallies (having helped organized a few myself) – and the minute those boundaries are broken, the LEO should start arresting the culprits right then. In fact, I believe the reason this has now gotten so out of control is because Obama never enforced the law for 8 years – and so here we are today.  The laws that are now being enforced have been on the books – but because Obama neglected his Constitutional Oath, they are perceived by the Left as something “new”.  Imagine having a baby and for 8 years not disciplining them or teaching them that actions have consequences. We are seeing the results of that now in society.

 

  Perhaps a personal story from a former Leftist will help everyone understand the mindset better and what we’re up against. Send this article to your kids – hopefully they are just under the fantasy of “idealism/utopia/humanism” at this point and their discernment will kick in & help them deal with the reality that nothing is ever going to be perfect on this earth, we are a sovereign nation with borders to protect, we are a nation of laws formed as a Constitutional Republic with a Constitution and Bill of Rights that includes the 2A, andALL lives matter!!  This is an excellent article, explaining the emotional/mental aspects of a true Leftist – and you will recognize the traits as classis textbook of the segment of society with which we are now at odds.   http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/262160/mind-left-insider-michael-faraday

Terror-Tied Group CAIR Causing Chaos, Promoting Protests & Lawsuits as Trump Protects Nation

      “The Council on American-Islamic Relations, aka CAIR, has helped launch a series of protests across the country and plans lawsuits related to President Trump’s recent executive orders on immigration. CAIR has been declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates and was named by federal prosecutors as anunindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding operation.

     The Council on American-Islamic Relations is also increasingly a part of America’s institutional left infrastructure and was one of the partners behind the recentWomen’s March in Washington that drew hundreds of thousands, along with feminist groups like Planned Parenthood.”

* Epic – Is Team Trump Baiting Liberal Media and Refugee Protesters By Using Obama’s Own Policy?

   “If you review the actual text of the executive order (copied below in full) what you will immediately notice is the order doesn’t specify ANY countries to be included in the Visa suspension (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen).

   President Trump is not suspending visas from countries his team selected, they are simply suspending visa approval from countries President Obama selected.  Additionally, Trump is suspending ALL visa applications from those countries – nothing to do with Muslim applications.”

Judge Jeanine: “Like it or not, laws are getting enforced”

  Judge Jeanine Pirro spent 32 years as a prosecuting attorney, District Attorney and Judge. She sees through the crap and the spin – and calls it out. She hosts her own show every Saturday evening @ 6pm on FOX NEWS & is one of my favorites (repeats @ 9pm).  She is a firearms owner and staunch Second Amendment supporter.

Over 300 Sanctuary Cities Are Costing State and Local Taxpayers over $7,000,000,000 Annually

    “The Trump executive order is also good news for taxpayers. Sanctuary cities impose a huge, billion $ cost to taxpayers that has been hidden from public view and shielded from political accountability. That annual taxpayer burden amounts to over $14 Billion nationally, over $1 billion in California and Texas and over $100 million annually in over a dozen states.

   This will be news to you because those annual taxpayer costs are hidden from public scrutiny — by Congress, by state legislatures, and by local officials. Sanctuary city policies have a high cost not only in allowing criminal aliens to roam free on our streets, they also impose a huge burden on taxpayers.

   What are the comparable numbers for your state? You can discover the SCAAP grant amounts for each state prison system and the local county jails applying for federal reimbursement at this website.”

NavyJack – Oath Keepers at the Inauguration 

     READ more: https://www.oathkeepers.org/navyjack-oath-keepers-inauguration/

 

To get the embedded first hand news that you won’t see on TV or the media, check out the OK follow-up article - AND comments from those who were able to answer the call!

 

“For the record, Oath Keepers from Operation HYPO attended and videotaped the meetings of the organizations responsible for disrupting the inauguration events and instigating this violence.  We provided that information and the raw video to the DC Metropolitan Police on January 11th, 2017.   Project Veritas and Oath Keepers cooperated on these activities.” – NavyJack

 

EXCERPT from Navy Jack:

    First, I want to thank all of the Oath Keepers and Patriots that responded to our Call to Action and came to Washington DC to participate in Operation DefendJ20. We were not there to impede peaceful protesters. We were there to assist and protect innocent citizens trying to attend the inauguration events from dangerous anarchists, ANTIFA and black-bloc rioters. I am sorry that I did not get to meet everyone. This was the best SHTF orientation training program you could ever hope for, because S did HTF yesterday afternoon.

   I am sure that every one of our Oath Keepers has a story of their own to tell and I encourage them to tell their story in the comments section below. For security purposes, do not include the names of any individuals assigned to a covert operations team. Also, refrain from providing details regarding the number of personnel assigned to your groups area.  We may have to do this again someday and we do not want to tip our hat on our deployment strategies.

 

EXCERPT from Stewart Rhodes, FOUNDER OF OATH KEEPERS: 

     Hat’s off to the Oath Keepers members who stepped up in DC.  I met some awesome patriots, both military and police veterans, and it made me proud and thankful to know we have such men in this organization.   And a special hat’s off to Navy Jack and his team of “infiltrators” who did an amazing job infiltrating the various leftist organizations plotting illegal activity on the 18th, 19th, and 20th in DC (and elsewhere in the nation too).   As always, our intent was to do what we felt was our duty under our oaths to keep people as safe as we could in the face of clear official failure to prevent a dangerous situation.   Yes, it was a short notice call to action, but so was our first Ferguson, Missouri operation (we had men on the rooftops in two days), and for the same reason – it became clear, just days in advance, that the official “authorities” were not going to take the needed steps to keep bad things from happening to good people.

 

EXCERPT from Chip,  NY OK: 

    Our mission was to back up and support local military and police efforts in providing event security and civilian protection. Our “Intel” team had done a superb job infiltrating the four protest groups (ANTIFA being the most violent) so we knew exactly who we were dealing with, their tactics…hell, everything but their names and addresses before the event. And then, helped us to track them on the day of the event. We got down there late Thursday evening, hooked up with Stewart early Friday morning and were on the Mall by around 8:15 that morning. The first thing Stewart did was divide [Information removed by NavyJack for OpSec] into “buddy teams”. I am honored to report that Stewart chose me…which is the first and only time I ever recall questioning (to myself) our Leader’s judgment! 

Update 01/21/2017 

1) Disruptj20 leader charged with conspiracy to commit assault in failed DeploraBall attack.

2)  CBS News compiled a photo album of some of the events here

3)  Infowars provides an accurate summary of the violence against Trump supporters yesterday here

4)  CBS News  – Most protesters arrested on Inauguration Day will face felony rioting charges here 

5)  I have added an update section to my previous article titled “The Presidential Inauguration (or not) of Donald J. Trump” to provide a comparison of forecast activities to the actual events.

The Fourth Circuit takes aim at gun owners’ civil rights. (4th CC of A covers states of VA, W VA, NC, SC, MD)

   To the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals,  armed is dangerous, and your decision to lawfully carry a weapon opens you to the possibility of a police frisk merely because you exercise a constitutional right. Indeed, Judge James Wynn, writing in concurrence, made the majority’s reasoning terrifyingly clear:

“Accordingly, the majority decision today necessarily leads to the conclusion that individuals who elect to carry firearms forego other constitutional rights, like the Fourth Amendment right to have law enforcement officers “knock-and-announce” before forcibly entering homes. . . . Likewise, it is difficult to escape the conclusion that individuals who choose to carry firearms necessarily face greater restriction on their concurrent exercise of other constitutional rights, like those protected by the First Amendment.”

Self-Defense for Women: Cultivate "Condition Yellow" 

 “Ask any self-defense expert what you can do right now to reduce your chances of becoming a victim of crime, and chances are they'll say the same thing: Cultivate your situational awareness.  A very simple way to cultivate situational awareness is to change your relationship with your smartphone. When you're focused on your phone, you have essentially rendered yourself "Condition White.”

California Gun Owners Are Already Subverting the State’s Expanded Assault Weapons Ban 

  Get the work-arounds while you still can – and read the entire article….

 Devices designed as workarounds have been on sale since the new restrictions were signed. Now it’s up to Attorney General Xavier Bacerra to decide whether they’re legal.

    “On the same day that Governor Jerry Brown signed the new law, Darin Prince, the inventor of the original bullet button, announced the release of a gun add-on called the Patriot Mag Release, or, as he dubbed it, the “Bullet Button Reloaded.” Other companies offer similar products, such as the AR Maglock, developed in response to an assault weapons law passed in 2013 in New York State. The mechanisms, which can be purchased online, are designed to meet legislators’ rules for detachable ammunition magazines, while still allowing shooters to blast away with minimal interruptions. As such, the products “undermine the spirit and effectiveness of California’s gun safety reforms,” said Ari Freilich, an attorney with the San Francisco-based Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.”

Supplier: L.A. Area Ammunition Purchases up Nearly 400%- since Prop 63 passed on Nov 8!

   I keep telling everyone to start stocking up on ammo NOW!!  Forego the pizza and movie night and BUY AMMO!

….and if you have an AR-15 or the like to “feed”, concentrate on that especially.  I can guarantee that after you get your Ammo “permit”, the DOJ will match up what kind of ammo you purchase to the firearms you have registered in California. If they find a discrepancy in matching, you may well get a knock on the door from the DOJ asking why you are purchasing ammo for a gun you supposedly don’t have – or an “assault” weapon that hasn’t been registered with the “authorities”.  Either way, it’s gonna be ugly!  

 

“Prop 63 goes into effect January 1, 2018. It will require a background check to be performed on all face-to-face ammunition purchases and will prohibit the acquisition of ammunition from online outlets. The months since the passage of Prop 63 have been marked by a frenzy of online ammunition purchases.”

  “The Presbyters of Pittsburgh of the Presbyterian Church, USA, have demanded that the Pennsylvania legislature ban all “assault weapons”, .50 cal sniper rifles, and armor-piercing handgun ammo. They base this action on the Orlando nightclub slaughter of last year. They suggest a political remedy for a problem that is, alas, a personal problem of heart, mind, and value systems.”

‘America hates California’: Bid to Make Golden State Separate Nation Jumps First Hurdle

                        Proposal could trigger vote on whether most populous US state should become a separate nation

    The reason I am including the below in the Newsletter is because if per chance California DID become its own nation, those living here would no longer be living in a constitutional republic form of government as we do now under the U.S. Constitution  (see http://capitalismmagazine.com/2003/01/republic-democracy-whats-the-difference/ for the difference between a republic and a democracy).   

 

    In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if the looney Left that already runs Sacramento wouldn’t just declare themselves to be an oligarchy!  There would no longer be a “We the People” of any sort – and you can damn well bet the first thing they would do is sign the Small Arms Treaty of the United Nation and disarm us all by force – which would get real bloody, real quick!  That’s just ONE of the things to consider about this “CalExit”….

A.G. File No. 2016-011        FROM: http://www.lao.ca.gov/BallotAnalysis/Initiative/2016-011 

    January 11, 2017

---------------------------------

    Pursuant to Elections Code Section 9005, we have reviewed an initiative (A.G. File No. 16-0011, Amdt. #1) proposing state constitutional and statutory amendments to ask voters if California should be an independent country.

 

   The United Nations (UN) Charter states that one of its purposes is to promote respect for the principle of “self-determination of peoples,” but the Charter generally does not authorize intervention in “matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state.” International institutions, however, sometimes play a role in helping aspiring nations secure independent statehood status.

 

    This measure repeals the part of the State Constitution that declares California to be “an inseparable part of the United States of America” and describes the U.S. Constitution as the “supreme law of the land.”

   In March 2019, voters would be asked, “Should California become a free, sovereign, and independent country?” The measure states this election “shall constitute a Declaration of Independence from the United States of America” if both of the following conditions are met:

  • At least 50 percent of registered voters participate.
  • At least 55 percent vote “Yes.”

    If both of these conditions are met, this measure requires the Governor (or an “ambassador” he or she appoints) to submit to the UN the application of the “newly-independent Republic of California” to be a UN member state.

Here is the actual text: https://www.oag.ca.gov/system/files/initiatives/pdfs/16-0011%20%28Separate%20CA%20from%20US%29_0.pdf

    Please note there is a lot more to an “exit” than just un-informed California voters saying “YES”.   BUT – this should tell us a LOT about the mentality (or lack of) in this state – which is sad and scary because for priding themselves as being so “progressive”, this really exposes the opposite as the pitfalls in this concept are infinite.  These are the people we see on the street, in the stores, on the subways and in our neighborhoods as well. Strange that they look so “normal” from the outside...
