When The Government Targets Constitutionalists
American Thinker ^ | February 13, 2014 | Stu Tarlowe

Posted on 02/16/2014 11:24:33 PM PST by neverdem

A friend sent me a link to an article on MediaTrackers.org, "Ohio National Guard Training Envisions Right-Wing Terrorism."

I have to say that I was outraged but not really surprised. That a state's National Guard training exercise would employ a scenario in which the "bad guys" were supporters of the Second Amendment and "limited government" is just a reflection of the regime's ongoing campaign to ridicule and demonize those who cherish the Constitution (not to mention the regime's defiance of the Constitution itself).

It reminded me of a Missouri Highway Patrol memo made public a couple of years ago in which troopers were cautioned that anyone displaying a Gadsden ("Don't Tread on Me") flag might be a potential right-wing terrorist.

And it was particularly not surprising in the context that it was the Ohio National Guard. Even though the personnel are all different now, for those of us with long enough memories the Ohio National Guard will always be known for a willingness to turn its armed might against fellow Americans of any political persuasion (e.g. Kent State, 1970).

But it certainly fit the Leftist meme that "right-wingers" in general, and the Tea Parties in particular, are racists and potential domestic terrorists.

In the disaster-preparedness scenario, two Portsmouth Junior High School employees poisoned school lunches with mustard gas, acting on orders from white-nationalist leader William Pierce. [...]

Participants in the disaster drill located documents expressing the school employees' "anti-government" sentiments, as well as a note identifying Pierce as the fictional right-wing terrorists' leader...

The new witchhunt. Right-wing terrorism.

The Left is unconcerned. Not as they were when card carrying Communists were being exposed and some were being outted for their collusion with Soviet agents.

Nearly all, if not all, of the recent history mass shooters are always progressives or democrats...

Well, you can’t use any minorities as the bad guys, you can’t use the gay mafia, you can’t use Muzzie terrorists, so what is left? That’s right, Tea Party patriots as the villains to the rescue.

When the government targets constitutionalists

Their goal is the deaths of millions of us, and the sheeple and lemmings will be conditioned to not only accept it, but to revel in it. We will be called every name in the book, and a few more.

One rule of combat...

“Never draw incoming fire...It annoys everyone around you!”

But in this case, I believe the counter-battery fire will be so devastating, I’m not so sure the initiators will be happy at the end of the day...

Constitutionalists didn’t start the attack on basic freedoms and liberties in this country...I just hope there are enough left to prove the opposition wrong when the time comes...

Just remember, no one will win this one...

The left is successfully hedging their bet that conservatives/Constitutionalists will not fight back when the time comes...They may actually be right, even when their actions and preparations are to take lives of people of that political, moral position...

The ultimate gut-check question, that is rhetorical, not requiring an answer on a publically accessible website is this...

“What are you prepared to do about it? AND, what are YOU willing to sacrifice to obtain success for these ideals?”

“The left is successfully hedging their bet that conservatives/Constitutionalists will not fight back when the time comes...They may actually be right, even when their actions and preparations are to take lives of people of that political, moral position”

Here is the sticky wicket. If many Christian conservatives, especially American Catholics start being attacked and killed specifically for their faith, they’ve been taught to follow Jesus’ example and go to their deaths rather than kill the unbeliever. It is okay to defend one’s family against the marauder and to lay one’s life down for your kids and defend them, yet the faith issue is seen by our secularist detractors as our Achilles heel. Speak ill of measures allowing Gays access to our society in libertine ways, we are called “haters who are false to what real Christians” “should be”! Thus we cower to such manipulative accusations.

Many of our ministers, pastors, and priests have become “religious Phil Donahues” who call for “tolerance” and confuse their flocks as to how to deal with real evil. They aren’t teaching their flocks about the Hebrew midwives who defied Pharoah, feared God and would not kill the Hebrew new born males. We aren’t being taught to fear God more than man!

This is one of many reasons why this country can’t survive as a 50-state entity. We’ve crossed the rubicon into an era in which those once seen as America’s enemies are in power and those who defend it are deemed “terrorists.”

Eventually, at least some of those billion rounds bought up by “Homeland Defense” (isn’t THAT term Orwellian, BTW) will be directed at American citizens.

I agree... and for many of us the die is already cast. Many of us here on FR will eventually be on the receiving end of a some of those rounds bought up by government agencies in the past couple years. We’re entering a very dark time.

.. and not only are the barbarians already within, but we're feeding/clothing/housing them until such time as the HelterSkelter balloon goes up.

Irony is so ironic.

‘Just remember, no one will win this one...’

We do our bit, God wins in the end.

In the matter of numbers, we will never have more than maybe 30 some-odd percent. Cut that in half and then cut it in half again and it is still enough to make the initiators, as you say, wish they’d invested elsewhere.

Pepsico underwriting Gabby Giffords’ gun control group

February 17, 2014

Just as Moms Demand Action (Go to a single’s bar, girls) and Mayors Against Illegal Guns (aka the Kiddie Porn Mayors group 1 2 3 4 5 6 Google it) has former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg funding their civilian disarmament schemes, and the Brady Campaign withers from a lack of funding, the folks at The Truth About Guns have identified the major source of funding for Gabby Giffords’ “Americans for Responsible Solutions” or whatever her merry band of 13 employees call themselves.

The sponsor: Pepsico.

Follow the money.

I’m sure some day God, Jesus and I will have a great conversation about interpretation of what is right and wrong in cases like this...

Then we’ll all go fishing...I look forward to that time together...I know I will not be alone...

I also am confident that God never wanted us to be fatalistic, or so sacrificial with the gift of life and a soul for that matter...Yes, it is honorable and faithful to sacrifice yourself for others, including family in the taking of a life to protect others and the innocent...

If God doesn’t want me to act in that capacity, he will make the other person faster than I and I will lose my life...That is an acceptable outcome...

If I manage to survive an encounter with someone who wishes to make a bad decision and credibly threaten myself, or others in my vicinity...And they are on the receiving end of my action to defend myself...then I do not see that as something difficult to discuss with the Almighty later on...

Our God is a fair judge, his instructions and wish for us to be honorable to the gift he has given us is clear...If I err, I stand tall to be corrected by an authority higher than ANY government/laws instituted among men...

Just my opinion...;-)

You and I are soooooo on the same page...You nailed it!!!

All that talk about how much ammo the government is buying up in recent years is just that, a lot of gas...Its not untrue what they are doing...

But there will be a lot more of us than they can handle with twice as much ammo...

Some of us are fairly adept in the use of such equipment, that I believe deep down their shooters are deathly afraid of us...And I am so ok with that, its not funny...I hope they get ulcers...

Thanks, Dave. There are only three things in that picture that we will never buy again.

I hate Pepsi and didn’t know that they gobbled up Quaker Oats.

We might miss Aquafina if we didn’t have an R.O. drinking water unit. [shrugs]
