Conscience of a Conservative
If love is the most powerful force in the universe, then sorrow has to be the most powerful emotion. And there are many people of questionable character who will take advantage of these truths and use them to promote their personal agendas. There are other truths that also cannot be denied and one more is that evil has existed in our world since God created Adam and Eve and Satan tempted Eve to eat the forbidden fruit. After Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden, their son Cain was tempted by evil and he killed his brother Able with a rock, the only weapon he had, and mankind has been plagued by murderous urges ever since. And only the choice of weapons has evolved. Evil, has many weaknesses, one of which is that those who are evil are usually cowards. Cowards who prey upon the weak and the defenseless. Those areas of our country where gun laws are less strict and citizens are allowed to carry them for self-defense have far less incidents of violence because would-be attackers never know who might be carrying a gun for protection. Those areas where guns are banned then become the ripe targets for attackers. Schools and college campuses are some of those prime areas. It is as if they all hung out a large sign that proclaimed WE ARE UNARMED. Israel used to be one of those countries that banned guns in schools until they got sick and tired of terrorists attacking their schools and killing their children. After they changed the law and Israeli teachers were taught how to use guns for self-defense and they were authorized to carry them, the terrorist attacks stopped. Texas also has similar laws in their schools but most schools in America follow a culture written by academics who strongly oppose guns to the point of creating a zero tolerance policy for anything that suggests a gun. Schools have become so paranoid over guns that they have suspended children who even drew a picture of a gun. And schools have proudly announced to every would be psychopath that THERE ARE NO GUNS HERE – WE ARE UNARMED.
Right now, following the horrific mass murders of little children at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, there are people who wish to turn this tragedy into a cause to ban certain types of guns called assault weapons as a precursor to outlawing every gun in America. As columnist Jacob Sullum once wrote, “the very term ‘assault weapon’ was invented by the anti-gun lobby as a way of blurring the distinction between semi-automatic firearms, which fire once per trigger pull, and machine guns such as the selective-fire assault rifles carried by soldiers.” The term Assault Weapon is as vague in its definition as the older term used years ago called Saturday Night Specials that supposedly meant cheap handguns but included almost every handgun on the market. The former is supposed to represent military grade weapons but the facts are that military weapons are fully automatic machine guns capable of firing multiple rounds of bullets with one squeeze on the trigger while commercial grade assault rifles are all semi-automatic and only fire one bullet with each squeeze on the trigger and are much slower to operate. Many rifles used for hunting are semi-automatic and differ only in style and capacity. As far as capacity goes, it would make no difference if the shooter had 30-round clips or 10-round clips, because the clips can allow the weapon to be quickly reloaded. Commercial grade assault rifles only appear to look like their military cousins. The real argument is just that they are scary to some people but to others they are just cool. But to tyrants who wish to become dictators, ALL guns in the hands of citizens are their greatest threat to success. And history has proved this fact over and over again.
When the subject of tyrants and dictators enter the equation of gun control then we begin to think about insidious schemes to disarm the people who would oppose them. Schemes planned and committed by people totally devoid of any moral or ethical scruples. And when money is added to the argument, the point of discussion turns to corruption, as we all know that “All power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”. And when vast sums of money are involved, Billions of dollars instead of merely Millions of dollars, then you can be assured that something very bad is going on. So now it is worth looking at some information about who the shooters were in the last two mass homicides in America, Aurora, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut. Some information not widely reported that suggests more of a conspiracy than a coincidence exists between these two events.
Fabian4Liberty web site has discovered these very interesting details.
The father of Newtown Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza is Peter Lanza who is a VP and Tax Director at GE Financial. The father of Aurora Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes is Robert Holmes, the lead scientist for the credit score company FICO. Both men were to testify before the US Sentate in the ongoing LIBOR scandal. The London Interbank Offered Rate, known as Libor, is the average interest rate at which banks can borrow from each other. 16 international banks have been implicated in this ongoing scandal, accused of rigging contracts worth trillions of dollars. HSBC has already been fined $1.9 billion and three of their low level traders arrested.
The Libor scandal is a series of fraudulent actions connected to the Libor (London Interbank Offered Rate) and the resulting investigation and reaction. The Libor is an average interest rate calculated through submissions of interest rates by major banks in London. The scandal arose when it was discovered that banks were falsely inflating or deflating their rates so as to profit from trades, or to give the impression that they were more creditworthy than they were. Libor underpins approximately $700 trillion in derivatives. It is controlled by the British Bankers’ Association (BBA). I am of the opinion that exposing this fraud will expose the fraud behind this entire banker run economic paradigm. If they manipulate LIBOR then I am confident they are manipulating everything else in the world of finance.
These are men that are not implicated as perpetrators of the rate manipulations, rather, they are the men who can provide the evidence that these manipulations are taking place. Holmes is the man who literally wrote the algorithm that detects such fraud, he is the leading expert in the world in this subject matter, and Lanza is a man with access to revenue records that will show just how much was gained through the manipulations of credit rates.
What does all of this mean?
Now that we have the facts, what do we do with them? What does all of this mean? Is it just an uncanny coincidence? Is there a more insidious plot behind this? This is where it is up to you to draw your own conclusions based on the facts.
Lanza and Holmes were and still are key witnesses in the LIBOR scandal. They hold critical information that would blow the lid off the biggest banker fraud in the history of the world.
Is it a conspiracy or a coincidence that the recent mass murders in America this year had this connection? The Congressional hearings into the LIBOR banking scandal have been widely reported. I don’t know if it is just a coincidence or not but this is just one aspect of the blizzard of emotional coverage that no one is bothering to mention on the major news programs. No matter if it was a conspiracy or a coincidence, the two men who were planning on testifying before Congress now have other things to think about and that may impact what they say since they now know there is a connection here between themselves. The British banking giant HSBC has been fined $1.9 billion and three of their low level traders arrested. This was one of the stories reported and just this morning another banking giant, UBS, pleaded guilty in the LIBOR scandal. The huge amount of the fines indicate the vast scope of the criminal activities. Another perspective on the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting is that the liberals are in a lather to push gun control once again but other angles are being overlooked or buried. Money is power and power corrupts and when there are billions of dollars involved you can be sure the scope of the corruption is just a big.
Another part of the news reporting from Newtown, Connecticut has been concerned with the sloppy and inaccurate reporting. On the CBS News show, Scott Pelley admitted that the original news reports on the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting contained numerous errors. The killer’s mother, Nancy Lanza, had no connection to the school and the gun used to murder the children was, in fact, a .223 caliber assault rifle. What else isn’t being reported? On our local Cincinnati news more than one law enforcement officer called for schools to have a least one person armed and trained in the use of firearms in the school at all times the classes were in session. In reading the various news coverage from around the country today there were reports from other communities calling for the same thing. So much is the difference between national news coverage from the liberal news media in big cities and local coverage in smaller towns and cities. There are significant comparisons in other countries to gun policies in American schools. Years ago, Islamic terrorists routinely targeted Israeli schools because just as in America they were all gun-free zones until the government began to arm Israeli teachers. After doing this the terrorists stopped trying to kill Jewish school children because they were cowards. Our national news media doesn’t talk about this either just as they seldom mention the successful way that Israel handles airline passenger screening to stop Islamic terrorists.

The phobia surrounding guns in America is as much to blame for the deaths of school children as was the homicidal maniac who pulled the trigger. But it goes against the motives of the gun-control advocates to place the blame where it belongs. Just as the same leftist news media who are reporting the daily cries of grief over the dead children to stir up the emotions, also hid the communist connections and Marxist/Socialist associations of Barack Hussein Obama to enable voters to reelect him. Now some in the media are saying that Obama is not taking a strong enough position to oppose gun ownership but are omitting the fact that he is simply waiting for the moment that the United Nations gun ban treaty comes before the U.S. Senate. Then the true nature and character of our politicians will be seen when they succumb to this emotional crisis. And the final straw will be when Barack Hussein Obama makes a public display of washing his hands of any complicity in the disarming of America just as Pontius Pilate did at the trial of Jesus Christ.
