NRA Quits Working With Obama

Laments Their ‘Agenda To Attack The 2nd Amendment’

by Noah Rothman | Mediaite

The National Rifle Association issued a less than encouraging statement after meeting with Vice President Joe Biden for a roundtable discussion on new measures that the federal government might take to limit future gun deaths and mass shootings. The NRA’s tersely worded statement attacked the motivation behind the White House’s summit and expressed “disappointment” in the Obama administration’s “agenda to attack the Second Amendment.”

“Justified”: Uniformed Invaders Shoot a Man 16 Times in his Bed

Auburn, Washington resident Dustin Theoharis was asleep in his bed on February 11, 2012 when two armed strangers entered his room and started to give him orders. Understandably startled, Theoharis reached for a flashlight. This prompted the two intruders to open fire. Theoharis – who was still in bed – was shot sixteen times, but survived.

The assailants who shot Theoharis were Detective Aaron Thompson of the King County Sheriff’s Office and Corrections Officer Kris Rongen. They had arrested Theoharis’s roommate, Nicholas Harrison, an ex-convict who had failed to report for community supervision. The officers were searching his bedroom to find if Theoharis had a gun, which would have allowed them to charge Harrison with a parole violation. They had no warrant or probable cause, and no gun was found. Since Harrison was already in custody at the time of the incident, there was no need to conduct a “safety sweep” of the residence.

Obama's 3 Card Monte with Gun Confiscation - A Scam. UPDATE Do you think the EO was not so bad?

Obama is not going to take your guns by executive order (EO); that's a scam that is being put out there.

Obama is the dealer in this scam.

The American People are the mark.

The Republican and Democrat establishment are the schills.

Obama is throwing executive order out there as a threat to the American People, not because he is going to use it or can even use it, but so you will give in to lesser restrictions. The Republicans and Democrats are going to pretend to banter back and forth about big restrictions, some restrictions and no restrictions. In the end, the Republican establishment will say its best that we pass small restrictions, otherwise Obama will use Executive Order to try and take away big chunks of gun rights.

I'm Questioning Everything: Alex Jones and the Vicarious Revolution

I watched the interview with Piers Morgan, just like all of us. It was satisfying, humorous, uncomfortable and so many other things – but like all material presented through media, I believe it served a greater purpose, whether those involved (Morgan and Jones) knew it or not. And that got me thinking…

What if Alex Jones is allowed to flaunt his brashness to such a large audience because all of those ‘folks’ that feel a small kindling of independence within their bellies after all the recent talks of freedom and rights – especially firearms – can ‘get their jollies’ so to speak through a courageous loudmouth like Alex Jones?

Hear me out:

Your average American lives out their dreams and/or desires through the media they are presented with via television and the internet; semi-athletic males often live vicariously through elite athletes competing against each other instead of turning off the TV and going out with friends to play and compete; women of all levels of attractiveness read magazines and fawn over celebrities hairstyles and clothes and bodies and do their best to imitate what they see so they can feel valuable; all people in all walks of life strive for possessions so that they can live through those things – they find that their own personal value follows the rise and fall of the value of their stuff.

We are a vicarious people trying to satisfy desires and live out dreams, ultimately trying to find value and purpose, through anything and everything that surrounds us.

Diet Soda Linked To Depression, NIH Study Says - Video

Coffee tied to a decrease in depression cases

By Jason Koebler | US News | January 9, 2013

Millions of people reach for an afternoon diet soda as a pick-me-up to make it through the rest of the day. But new research suggests sodas and other sugary drinks — especially artificially sweetened ones — could be related to depression.

According to the research, which will be officially released at the American Academy of Neurology's annual meeting in mid-March, people who drink four cans or more of soda daily are about 30 percent more likely to be diagnosed with depression than people who don't drink soda. Coffee drinkers are about 10 percent less likely to develop depression than people who don't drink coffee.

Lew Rockwell: "There is a Ron Paul Surprise Coming..."

Lew Rockwell, writing about Glenn Beck's faux-libertarian network, says: "Now the neocon warmonger and police statist is pretending to be a libertarian, but Ron Paulians aren't fooled. Nor will anyone else be. Oh, and Glenn, there is an RP surprise coming for you that will make you chew your Diet Coke cans." [my bold]

Anyone in the know on this?

If I had to guess, it sounds like RP might launch his own libertarian media outlet of some sort... ?

Prominent rifle manufacturer killed in mysterious car crash

Natural News: "Sure, a car crash involving John Noveske could be a coincidence. It could also be a coincidence that no video footage has been released from Sandy Hook showing Adam Lanza carrying any rifle whatsoever.

It might also be a coincidence that Dianne Feinstein just happened to have her detailed gun confiscation bill ready to release immediately following the Sandy Hook shooting.

It could also be a total coincidence that NBC News reported Adam Lanza's AR-15 rifle was left in his car and was never used in the shooting at all.

I suppose it could be a coincidence that Bank of America slammed home an economic embargo against an online gun parts retailer in the days following the Sandy Hook shooting.

And it could be coincidence that Facebook suspended or shut down the accounts of hundreds of prominent people who advocated the Second Amendment, including our account here at Natural News.

New Book: GOP Stole the Nomination from Ron Paul

This looks like a very interesting new book, not that it would tell us much that we didn't already know...but something to promote:

Excerpt:

In a provocative book released this week, author Michael S. Alford makes a powerful case that the GOP establishment stole the Republican nomination from Congressman Ron Paul. The book is titled, Swindled: How the GOP Cheated Ron Paul and Lost Themselves the Election. Alford presents compelling evidence gathered from firsthand testimonials, video evidence, and news reports from the 2012 caucuses and primaries that he believes points to a conspiracy by the GOP establishment to take votes away from Dr. Paul and give them to other candidates.

ALBANY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – During his State of the State address on Wednesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo made an impassioned plea to the Legislature to ignore pressure from the gun lobby and end the madness of gun violence. He sought the toughest gun laws in the nation.

He admitted he’s a gun owner himself and said he doesn’t want to stop hunters and others from owning weapons, but Cuomo tried to shame the Legislature into action with a passionate speech on gun violence, CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer reported.

Ben Swann Reality Check: Does President Obama have the authority to sidestep Congress on the debt ceiling?

Twenty-one Democrats have sent a letter to President Obama telling him not to bother fighting with House Republicans over the debt ceiling. Instead, they say he should just use any authority possible to prevent the nation from going into default.

Under the 14th Amendment, those members of Congress say the President has that authority. But does he? Ben has the Reality Check:

Pravda: "Americans, Never Give Up Your Guns"

By Stanislav Mishin | Pravda | 28.12.2012

These days, there are few things to admire about the socialist, bankrupt and culturally degenerating USA, but at least so far, one thing remains: the right to bear arms and use deadly force to defend one's self and possessions.

This will probably come as a total shock to most of my Western readers, but at one point, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. This was, of course, when we were free under the Tsar. Weapons, from swords and spears to pistols, rifles and shotguns were everywhere, common items. People carried them concealed, they carried them holstered. Fighting knives were a prominent part of many traditional attires and those little tubes criss crossing on the costumes of Cossacks and various Caucasian peoples? Well those are bullet holders for rifles.

Larry Pratt: British Gun Crime Stats are a "Sham"

Piers Morgan calls the GOA Executive Director’s claim an “absolute lie.” Is it?

TheEndRun.com
January 10, 2013

Last night, Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight for a debate with the host. Morgan is a British "citizen" ("subject"?) who has recently been using his platform on CNN to promote the idea that the U.S. Constitution is "inherently flawed" and to advocate stricter, more British-style gun control policies in the U.S. This was Pratt's second appearance on the show in the past month, having previously appeared in the wake of the Sandy Hook event.

At one point in the exchange (around 11:18 in this video), Morgan says that he "actually dug out the official figures... the homicide figures from guns in England and Wales by comparison to the United States of America going back to 2003," and proceeds to read off numbers showing that the U.S. has a much higher gun murder rate. Morgan then claims that the lower numbers in England and Wales are "the result" of the "responsible action" taken in "respon[se]" to the 1996 school shooting in Dunblane, Scottland -- namely a "handgun and assault weapon ban."
