Conscience of a Conservative
The issue of gun control in the United States was thoroughly decided by the Supreme Court when they reaffirmed the Second Amendment two years ago. Of course that decision was made by only a slim 5-4 majority and now that Barack Hussein Obama has four more years, he is expected to appoint at least one replacement Justice to the Supreme Court which will tip that balance in favor of the Socialists. Then came the concerns about the United Nations Small Arms Treaty that was resurrected when Barack Hussein Obama’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reversed previous administrations by saying she would support it. Confounding the threat came about when 58 U.S. Senators sent a letter to The White House saying they would not sign any such treaty if it came before them. This point was emphasized in a so-called debunking story posted on the liberal FactCheck web site.
First, we should note that Obama has said that the Second Amendment “does provide for Americans the right to bear arms for their protection, for their safety, for hunting, for a wide range of uses.” But if Obama actually wanted to “ban all firearms in the United States,” the strategy outlined in this email would be a curious way of trying to accomplish that goal.
For starters, Obama wouldn’t be able to “bypass” Congress, as the author of this email claims. All international treaties that the U.S. agrees to require the approval of two-thirds of the senators present before the treaties can be ratified. Those would surely be tough votes to get if the treaty banned all firearms. Last year, in fact, 13 Democratic senators, led by Jon Tester of Montana, wrote a letter to Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saying that they wouldn’t support a treaty unless they were guaranteed that it wouldn’t “in any way regulate the domestic manufacture, possession or sales of firearms or ammunition” in the U.S. That’s in addition to 45 Republican senators, led by Jerry Moran of Kansas, who also wrote a letter saying that “any treaty resulting from the Arms Trade Treaty process that seeks in any way to regulate the domestic manufacture, assembly, transfer, or purchase of firearms, ammunition, and related items would be completely unacceptable to us.”
The fear of a nationwide ban on the ownership of all guns by law-abiding American citizens was fueled by a responsible article published in 2009 by the Reuters news agency.

U.S. reverses stance on treaty to regulate arms trade
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto.
The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush’s administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better.
And this article that came out today from the Northern Kentucky TEA Party adds even more fear about the possibility of a pending Civil War in the event that the Marxist/Socialist Democrats attempt to disarm Americans. The one thing Obama needs to fear most is the same thing that Japanese Admiral Yamamoto feared when he thought about invading America. “You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” is a quote by Isoroku Yamamoto, Commander-in-Chief of the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II.
A Civil War Is Coming!!!! WASHINGTON (Reuters)
The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto. The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush’s administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better.
On Wednesday Obama took the First Major Step in a Plan to Ban All Firearms in the United States. The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for U.S. citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the U.S. State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the U.S. Government signs these international treaties, all U.S. citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms. It will never happen!
The Obama administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before U.S. citizens even understand what has happened. Obama can appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation (in the United States) that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is committing the U.S. to international treaties and foreign gun control laws. Does that mean Obama is telling the truth? What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress. We will wake up one morning and find that the United States has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public. We will wake up another morning and find that the U.S. has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership. And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the U.S. has signed a treaty that requires U.S. citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment.
This is not a joke nor a false warning. As sure as government health care will be forced on us by the Obama administration through whatever means necessary, so will gun control.
Please forward this message to others who may be concerned about the direction in which our country is headed. Straight into socialism if Obama has his way… We are being led like a lamb to the slaughter, (Socialism/Dictatorship).
In the history of the world politics is as old as prostitution and both bear similar traits. Any good Christian who reads the bible will know the story of Pontius Pilate and the trial of Jesus Christ that resulted in the crucifixion. Pontius Pilate was the Roman Prefect of the province of Judaea and was the judge who ceremoniously washed his hands and took no blame when the mob, spurred on by Roman agitators, called for the execution of Jesus. Politicians have frequently imitated that practice of ceremonial hand-washing in the face of unpopular decisions. Barack Hussein Obama has demonstrated many times how he conspires to enact dictatorial decrees he has previously denounced. How many times has Obama used the highly technical rule of passing laws by Executive Order or making questionable appointments during recesses when the Senate is closed for business and not able to ratify them. On the issue of gun control or completely banning all firearms, every dictator in history has made this the first order of their tyrannical rule. While the U.S. Constitution assigns the authority of passing treaties to a 2/3 majority of the Senate, what prevents Barack Hussein Obama from signing such a treaty by himself during a recess when the Senate is closed? Nothing! Obama has already stated that he often finds Congress as an inconvenient impediment to his legislative plans. So it is a reasonable presumption to contemplate that whatever Obama wants to do he will find a way to do it and it is just as reasonable to predict that if and when that comes to pass when the confiscation of privately owned firearms begins, there will be a Civil War in the United States of America.
The course of a new Civil War in America will be totally different from that first American Revolution that formed our nation in 1776 or the one that ended the secession of the eleven Confederate States. Today we already have unmanned aerial predator drones flying over our homes. There would hardly be a need to send truckloads of soldiers into our neighborhoods when GPS tracked locations of hot spots can be fed into computers guiding those drones. We’ve all seen the amazing accuracy when they take out a terrorist in Afghanistan. One rather extremist web site (that destroyed their own credibility by claiming the U.S. government blew up the World Trade Center towers on 9-11-2001) has already suggested that a mysterious blast in an Indiana neighborhood that destroyed several homes was caused by a Hellfire missile fired from a Preditor drone. As far as rumors go, and just in case there are more of these “mysterious” explosions, simply checking the voter registrations or a Google search for the victim’s names would tell if any were active patriots.The variables that exist today make plans for war a very complex matter. We have FEMA arming the civilian national defense force that Obama promised us in 2008 (read Civil War In The U.S.? Brace Yourself). And DHS already has in place a program for neighborhood informants. Yes, they all refer to domestic terrorism but then again, Homeland Security has defined us as being the terrorists. Here is the official government announcement from FEMA from their web site.
September 14, 2012
Vicksburg, Miss., Sep. 13, 2012 — FEMA Deputy Administrator Rich Serino gives the keynote address at the Induction Ceremony for the inaugural class of FEMA Corps members. FEMA Corps members assist with disaster preparedness, response, and recovery activities, providing support in areas ranging from working directly with disaster survivors to supporting disaster recovering centers to sharing valuable disaster preparedness and mitigation information with the public. Originially posted by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Deputy Administrator Rich Serino on Thursday, August 13, 2012
Yesterday, we welcomed 231 energetic members into the first ever FEMA Corps class. The members just finished off their first month of training with our partners at the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and are one step closer to working in the field on disaster response and recovery. They will now head to FEMA’s Center for Domestic Preparedness to spend the next two weeks training in their FEMA position-specific roles. Once they complete both the CNCS and FEMA training, these 231 dedicated FEMA Corps members will be qualified to work in one of a variety of disaster related roles, ranging from Community Relations to Disaster Recovery Center support.
Or this commentary on the same story from the web site called White Out Press. And I do remember the historical comparisons between Obama’s Civilian National Defense Corps and Hitler’s youthful brownshirts. The revelation that Homeland Security has been purchasing millions of rounds of hollow-point bullets, a type of ammunition banned in warfare by international conventions, is not very reassuring.
October 7, 2012. Vicksburg. The federal government calls them FEMA Corps. But they conjure up memories of the Hitler Youth of 1930’s Germany. Regardless of their name, the Dept of Homeland Security has just graduated its first class of 231 Homeland Youth. Kids, aged 18-24 and recruited from the President’s AmeriCorp volunteers, they represent the first wave of DHS’s youth corps, designed specifically to create a full time, paid, standing army of FEMA Youth across the country.

On September 13, 2012, the Department of Homeland Security graduated its first class of FEMA Corps first-responders. While the idea of having a volunteer force of tens of thousands of volunteers scattered across the country to aid in times of natural disasters sounds great, the details and timing of this new government army is somewhat curious, if not disturbing.
DHS raising an armed army
The first problem one finds with this ‘new army’ is the fact that they are mere children. Yes, 18 is generally the legal age a person can sign a contract, join the military or be tried as an adult. But ask any parent – an 18, 20 or even a 24 year-old is still a naïve, readily-influenced kid.
The second problem with this announcement and program is its timing. Over the past two years, President Obama has signed a number of Executive Orders suspending all civil and Constitutional rights and turning over management of an America under Martial Law to FEMA. Also in that time, domestic federal agencies under DHS, including FEMA, have ordered billions of rounds of ammunition as well as the corresponding firearms. Admittedly, these new weapons and ammunition aren’t to be used in some far-off war or to fight forest fires in California, but right here on the streets of America.
Today we have groups like the Oath Keepers who desire to remind military and law enforcement about their Constitutional oaths to uphold the Constitution and to disobey unlawful orders to confiscate civilian firearms. We have FBI infiltrators joining local Militias to root out any threats of violence, presumably against the government because they have been directed to remove referenced to Islamic inspired terrorism from their training manuals. We see the Obama administration planning to take over the Internet, which up to now has been the most popular method of conservative groups to communicate. When we read how people in other countries have relied upon social media to pass along information in their quests for civil rights and how easy it would be to flip a switch and cut off cell phones it makes it very easy for a tyrannical regime to fight their own population in modern times. So unlike the early predictions made by Southern gentlemen that the Civil War would be quickly decided, a new Civil War will be a long and hard fought battle to restore the rights and freedom of our country. In the famous words of St. Augustin, “Work as if everything depended upon you and Pray as if everything depended upon God.” Or as the memorable WWII song goes, “Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition.” It was an American patriotic song written by Frank Loesser and published in 1942 by Famous Music Corp. The song was a response to the attack on Pearl Harbor that marked United States involvement in World War II. I think we will be singing it again. And, if Admiral Yamamoto’s fear that Americans had a gun behind every blade of grass was accurate in WWII, then today, thanks to Obama, we probably have two guns behind every blade of grass.
