When It Come To Gun Control; GOP Congress Persons Are Deft Dumb and Blind

sandy hook victim

December 14, 2018, was the 6th anniversary of the horrific and devastating Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Twenty (20) children between six and seven years old, as well as six adult staff members. On January 16, 2013, former President of the United States, Barack Obama gave one of the most compassionate speeches that I have ever heard on behalf of the American people. He looked straight into the cameras and made a compelling case for a change in direction as it relates to a gun culture that is totally out of control. He reached out with an open hand to our elected officials in congress and asked them to join him in finding solutions to the mayhem caused by unethical gun sales, assault rifles, and massive clips.

The former President Obama spoke on the behalf of the small innocent children, their protective teachers, and the brave administrators that died at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. The President spoke on the behalf of the grieving parents that lost their children, and members of Sandy Hook community that have to live with this tragedy every day. He spoke on the behalf of the thousands of Americans that die each year from senseless gun violence on school campuses, office buildings, in their homes, in the streets, and yes, even in our places of worship. He spoke of the need for all Americans to work collectively to protect our children and improve public safety for all Americans.

As the President Obama said, even when we enact new gun laws and needed gun regulations, we won’t stop every senseless act of violence. More importantly, those congressmen/women that do absolutely nothing to help President Obama and his Administration address our murderous national epidemic and/or actively fight against reasonable gun legislation on the behalf of the National Rifle Association (NRA), and gun manufacturers, will be called out. We will not allow our representatives in Congress to sit on their hands and wait on the NRA to give them their marching orders with a canned speech in tow. Note 1: The NRA is designated as a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization that is using the people’s tax monies to create scandalous videos supporting no gun control regulations. Note 2: During the 2018 USA elections, the NRA Spent $30 Million to Elect Trump. U.S. Investigators have supporting evidence that all or most of the $30 million that the NRA spent on Trump was linked Russian!

FACTS: Polls show that 97 percent of Americans support background checks for all gun buyers. on firearms buyers at gun shows; sixty-nine percent of NRA members expressed support for comprehensive background checks. 84 percent of Democrats favor a firearms ownership database while only 45 percent of Republicans do.

Many American politicians, especially  have allowed the National Rifle Association (NRA), and gun manufacturers to hold the entire nation hostage to a sick unwarranted gun culture. These two entities have more power in our “Nation Capitol” than the 435 members in the House of Representatives and 100 members in the Senate combined. This is completely outrages; therefore, we must demand that members of Congress pass comprehensive legislation to ban assault weapons, and high-capacity magazines.

If members of congress don’t support the American people in enacting reasonable gun laws that will enhance the overall safety of this nation, the people must mobilize a massive march on Congress and vote them out. If you can’t afford to physically join the march on Congress you can certainly electronically march on congress. These congressmen/women that we sent to Washington must know that we will not tolerate their small-mindedness, lack of courage, and refusal to act in the best interest of the American people. We must let them know that we will not wait for another brazen act of violence against innocent men, women, and/or children. We will not wait until they can line their campaign war chest with even larger amounts of blood money from Gun Interest.

If Congressman/women, don’t act responsibly now to enact solutions to our tremendously horrific gun problem, we will name names and call them out. Congress will have to either do its job or quit and get out of our way. We will not continue to pay them their considerable salaries with generous benefits for them to continue to play Deft Dumb and Blind to our nation’s most pressing problems. People get ready in the summer of 2019 to hold a massive march on Congress to let them know that they are elected to do the people’s business. We need to know if they are in Congress strictly for the money or are they there to serve the people who elected them to their offices.

Creeping in the Shadows

Have you ever wondered just who the professional strategists, paid agitators, advisors, lobbyist, and policy analysts who work behind the scene to guide the design and development of Domestic and Foreign policy issues? These policy advisors generally have keen knowledge of the political process, excellent communication skills, and political contacts gained from previous experience.

Background Information: Domestic policy issues include gun control, voting, employment, education, health care, welfare, environmental protection, economic intervention, taxes, and our infrastructure. Foreign policy issues include maintaining a balance of power among nations, promoting world peace, national security, international trade, etc.

Let us be clear, the goals of the professional strategist, analysts, lobbyists, and paid agitators are to advise and assist their employer(s) in designing policies that are, not necessarily, in the best interest or for the good of the majority of people. They design policies that are in the best interest of the employers be it the NRA, Gun Manufactures, Banking, Big Pham, Social Media, Entertainment Industry, and the Financial sector, etc.

Policies designed and promoted by the “Behind the Scene” individuals that are also, Creeping in the Shadows, generally their decisions have severe consequences on the lives of everyday Americans. Politicians are in the spotlight delivering speeches; however, the content of the speeches are based on secretly devised policies and mission statements that are drawn up by people ‘who work over their shoulders’.

The professional strategist, paid agitators, advisors, lobbyist, and policy analysts work with politicians and like-minded media mouthpieces to create policies with propaganda, and false narratives, to, deliberately, mislead the Americans and other people. They use the media to sway opinions about everything from Gun control, nominees for federal judgeships to nominees for president’s cabinet. Again, they hide in the shadows working hard to impact policies that impact every aspect of our lives. Who are they?

Moreover, unscrupulous political action groups, individual elitist, and corporations hire professional strategist, paid agitators, advisors, lobbyist, and policy analysts, to spread half-truth, if not outright lies and administer smear campaigns that are designed to damage or destroy the reputation and/or good names of honest Americans who are ready, willing and able to serve this nation. They come up with patriotic and professional sounding names in an effort to confuse real patriotic American and fraudulently paint targeted disfavored candidate as ‘outside the mainstream on key issues they want the public to support.

To get their way, they often target what they consider vulnerable officials that are up for re-election and force them to do their dirty work. One of their most effective strategies is to use the media to create voter apathy among groups and individuals that do not support their position, and create passion and high emotions among voters that do support their positions. They move to confuse the issue of trust and attempt to drive people away from the polls. Hence, their goal is to have a major impact on the outcome of an election. The American people must remember that despair and abstention are self-defeatist prophecies.

Newly elected-officials must remember that these professional strategists, paid agitators, advisors, lobbyist, and policy analysts wait patiently for each new president and new congressmen/women to come to Washington. They then latch on to their coat-tails offering assistance and guidance. They have played the same games of ‘hiding their hands’, and ‘divide and conquer’ while using barely legal, borderline data to help those that support their causes and assassinate the character of a natural born leader that will not bow to their demands.

Americans must support ethical politicians and not be persuaded or dissuaded by false ads or manufactured propaganda used to marginalize honest, legitimate leaders. This kind of action most time lead to the damage of the overall health of America’s democratic process. Americans must demand the whole truth and speak out against dishonest ads. When any politician brings a new bill to the floor:

  1. we must follow the dollars supporting the bill,
  2. demand to know who participated in writing the bill (i.e. prolific bill making machines – The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC),
  3. the National Rifle Association (NRA and other unknowns),
  4. know who control the sponsor of the bill, and
  5. most of all make sure that all bills are designed in the BEST INTEREST of the majority of the American people.

These folks don’t realize that things have changed, and Americans are paying attention to their deceitful corrupt tactics. The 1% controlled legislation will soon be over.

Get To Know ALEC As Well As Those That Fund Them!

“The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) was founded in 1973 by Henry Hyde, Lou Barnett, and Paul Weyrich, who helped build a nationwide right-wing political infrastructure following the reelection of Richard Nixon”.

Progressives must research the methods used by “The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) to develop their widely distributed legislative documents which they provide to conservatives politicians. “ALEC is a nonprofit organization of conservative state legislators and private “sector representatives” who draft and share model state-and (federal) level legislation for distribution among state governments in the United States”.

The American Legislative Exchange Council is a nonprofit organization funded in part by conservatives politicians and corporate leaders. Companies include:

CenterPoint 360 (a firm that helps companies “manage legislation”), Altria (formerly Phillip Morris tobacco), the American Bail Coalition (the trade group for for-profit bail bonds), AT&T, Bayer (aspirin), Coca-Cola, Diageo (Crown Royal and other liquor), Energy Future Holdings (Texas electricity), ExxonMobil, GlaxoSmithKline (Tums and other brands), Intuit (Quickbooks), Johnson & Johnson (lotion), Koch Industries (Georgia Pacific paper products and other brands), Kraft Food (Macaroni and Cheese dinners), Peabody Energy (the largest private coal company in the world), Pfizer (Viagra), PhRMA (the pharmaceutical trade group), Reed Elsevier (Lexis/Nexis legal research), Reynolds American (tobacco), Salt River Project (energy), State Farm Insurance, United Parcel Service, and Wal-Mart (world’s largest retailer).

Once again, ALEC consist of conservative state and federal legislators and private sector representatives who draft and share model state-level legislation for distribution among state and (federal) governments in the United States. ALEC provides a forum for state legislators and private sector members to collaborate on model bills—draft legislation that members may customize and introduce for debate in their state legislatures. ALEC has produced model bills on a

Before the next election, it is imperative that Democrats develop their own version of the “American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)”. They must seek out progressive Legislative Thought Leaders (LTLs) to help them put their ideas and concepts into Legislative formats to share, replicate and submit. It will take an ALEC type legislative village to complete with the kind of professionally developed legislative documents that they share with conservative politicians. ALEC’s sharing of conservative legislation with conservative politician’s is BIG BUSINESS… cate

The Psychology of Confusion

Who’s right who’s wrong? Too many Leaders today seem to be in a permanent state of trigger-happy confusion. Emotional intelligence has taken a back seat to bomb first and ask questions later mentality. Bombs are falling and/or exploding, on a daily basis, in several Islamic countries and on countries of color. When bombs fall, unsuspecting victims’ lives are immediately turned upside down and a tragic condition of confusion set in while we watch the results in living color on our big screen TVs.

Both people and animals run for cover hoping that the direction they chose will not be the target of their death. This is the 21st century; however, mankind still has not learned to respect the life of another man, woman or child. Major power without couscous of action brings about psychological and physical damages that cannot be repaired or replaced.

One can only imagine the confusion of the locals when bombs are falling on their dreams while the earth beneath their feet is constantly disturbed by sorties of stealth bomber from a foreign land by a foreign power that they didn’t invites into their homes or their lands. Western government’s Blind Ambitions confuses the emotions and leave no room for enlightenment. Continue reading The Psychology of Confusion

Citizens of the United States of America Must Demand Taxation Equity

The so-called Republican “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” amounts to the single most substantial reduction of the corporate tax rate in U.S. history. It permanently slashes the rates at which corporations pay taxes from 35 percent to 21 percent. Based on recent data, the reduction of the corporate tax rate amounts to a $1.3 trillion tax cut over the next decade.

Before the American historical tax giveaway by Trump and the Republican Party, the world community was given a gift documenting an illegal money laundering networks of the global elite. These documents are known as the “Panama Papers” which consist of 11.5 million leaked documents

These documents known as the “Panama Papers” were “leaked to journalists from a law firm in Panama that created shell companies in which large corporations and wealthy individuals from around the world parked their money out of the view of their governments and their governments’ tax collectors.” Continue reading Citizens of the United States of America Must Demand Taxation Equity

Reinvigoration of Our Determination To Generate Permanent Gun Control Laws

The American people must re-shape the national discourse related to the Second Amendment rights and gun violence. As it pertains to reasonable gun control laws, the United States is a global pariah. America cannot continue to accept false narratives and blatant misinformation from self-serving pressure groups that assault weapons are “rarely used in criminal activity and would not reduce violence.” These groups continue to pursue an agenda designed to delay or destroy the implementation of much-needed gun safety measures. Some people believe that the best way to protect yourself from gun crime is to own guns yourselves. However, which are the best guns to protect yourself with? You could visit https://knowpreparesurvive.com/gear/guns/best-pellet-bb-air-guns-hunting-self-defense/ to find out what they recommend. We need to reinvigorate the nation’s resolve to develop comprehensive and permanent “Gun Control” laws. Weapons of war don’t belong on streets throughout America. When it comes to gun safety, it is important to find ways like using hidden gun furniture to help keep your gun hidden and away from unwanted visitors. If a weapon gets into the wrong hands, we wouldn’t like to imagine what could happen.

The security of the American people is in direct conflict with the perceived “Second Amendment rights” of gun owners to possess assault rifles and massive magazine clips. These weapons of mass destruction are designed to kill an enormous number of people in a matter of minutes. On Jan. 5, 2016, before leaving office, President Obama announced a series of executive actions aimed at reducing gun violence. Former President Obama instructed former U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder to “review categories of people prohibited from gun ownership to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.” However, President Trump, supported by Republican Senators and Republicans in the House of Representatives has continued to rescind the Obama era gun control policies. Most of the public now believe that that gun detection is more important than gun laws this is why gun detection systems have been developed that can detect guns through a camera and alert the owner through an app, the technology is growing and will become more mainstream over the coming years.

Trump and Florida Gov. Scott’s allegiance to the NRA appear to supersede their love for the American people. Their refusal to attend the up-coming “Parkland Town Hall” speaks volumes about their anti-gun control positions that are responsible for thousands of American deaths each year. No American that’s serious about ending gun violence could legitimately disagree with the former President Obama’s gun control directive? It is a sad day in America when we have Republicans fearing primary challenges from the right if they oppose the NRA.

1) Congress has failed to pass more than 100 gun control proposals in since 2011.
2) Background checks are a systematic way to keep guns out of the wrong hands and save lives.
3) There have been 18 school shootings in the United States in just 43 days of 2018.
4) A recent survey stated that 57 percent of Americans think gun laws should be stricter.
5) The study also found that 57 percent support a nationwide ban on assault weapons. Continue reading Reinvigoration of Our Determination To Generate Permanent Gun Control Laws

BLACK SOUTH AFRICANS DEMAND HUMAN AND ECONOMIC JUSTICE

First of all, I want to congratulate Mr. Cyril Ramaphosa, South Africa’s newly elected President. President Ramaphosa, representing the African National Congress (ANC), has a unique opportunity to make good on their original promises made to Black South Africans  prior to winning their independence. They promised to bring justice to victims of apartheid-era high crimes such as human rights violations, massacres, torture, extensive imprisonment of activists, and crippling racial discrimination.

At the end of the Apartheid era, the ANC adopted a concept called the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). The TRC, which facilitated South Africa’s transition to Black rule, has been a humongous failure in delivering justice and compensation to the Indigenous/aborigines Black people of South Africa.

Moreover, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) provided Indigenous/aborigines Black South Africans with an empty peace and false promises of reparations, equity, and equality. Hence, during the transition, the major failure of the African National Congress (ANC) was the acceptance of the dreaded “Truth & Reconciliation Commission. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC)” proved to be one of the most insulting, vile and abominable aspects of South Africa’s transition government.

The so-called South African’s Truth & Reconciliation Commission (TCR) was a deceitful enterprise that was supported by several Western governments in addition to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank. These same western power brokers that pushed the ANC to adopt the TRC, also helped created and sustained the racial dictatorship that came to be known as apartheid.

The Jim Crow Timeline 1870 to 1875

This is a chronicle of the timeline of denial of access and inhumane treatment that African-American/Blacks had to endure in these United States of America.
