Millions of Americans are mourning the loss of decorated U.S. Navy SEAL sniper and author Chris Kyle, who was laid to rest next to fellow SEALs at the Texas State Cemetery. The funeral services were held just hours before President Barack Obama delivered his State of the Union address, though he failed to acknowledge the tragedy in what should have been a golden opportunity.
Kyle and friend Chad Littlefield were killed Feb. 2 by a former Marine they were helping deal with post-traumatic stress disorder.
Seen by many as a true American hero, Kyle served four tours in Iraq and was known as the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. His efforts saved countless American lives and earned him two Silver Stars.
And yet on Wednesday, just a day after Kyle’s burial, the Charlotte Sun Herald ran a political cartoon that took an obvioius jab at Second Amendment advocates’ insistence that “good guys with guns” are the best way to stop crazy shooters. The timing of such commentary was a classless act that disrespected Kyle’s family and all who’ve served their country.
The slight also appears to be intentional. The cartoon, by Kansas City Star cartoonist Lee Judge, was originally published on Feb. 9 — three days before Kyle’s memorial service.

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle -- Sun Tzu, The Art of War
America is facing two wars, both instigated by a foreign nation with foreign interests; wars to be fought here on American soil with Tyranny and Liberty in the balance.
At this very moment Americans are secretly being herded, manipulated, divided and gulled into a civil war; A weakening, disarming, demoralizing, devastating, but still dispensable civil war. Then, without relief, the second, and most brutal, war will begin; a war to determine the future of the world for generations to come.
The Civil War will be a false flag event, staged to disarm Americans followed by an attack of multi-national troops - destroying the final resistance and instituting a new system of government; a world government with the former America as a territory.
To understand how this is possible it necessary to open your mind and look around.
The United States Government has been captured and is not the government authorized by the Constitution for the United States of America, but rather a usurper occupational government that is de facto.

"Now listen to what I am telling you. This is a continuing operation that involves many of the same people on both sides of the aisle in Washington. This is one of the reasons why no one wants to talk about Obama’s past. He is the product of a continuing intelligence operation, put in power to oversee the dismantling of the U.S., with the economy being the lynchpin of our destruction. Obama, Jarrett, and the Clintons are in constant contact with all high level operatives inside the DHS. Perhaps not directly in all cases but through their contacts. They are working together to see to it that the U.S. economy is brought down, robbing the people of their wealth and then blaming partisan politics for the crash.
DH: When? How soon will all of this happen?
RB: I don’t have a crystal ball, but I have seen various reports referencing unprecedented “drills” to take place in later March and April. I’ll mention this because I know a lot of people on the inside at DHS have seen this. A document called “Operation Thunderdome.” It’s maybe 50 or 60 pages, I’m not certain. It describes an economic collapse in the U.S., followed by an attack on the government by “a made-up patriotic group.” It combines gun owners, Constitutionalists, and even Christians into an enemy group that pulls off an attack in Washington.
But don’t fall into the trap of trying to pick the time of these events. Their plans are flexible, but their objectives are carved in stone.
DH: Sounds like a Reichstag type event - sometime.
RB: Exactly. Maybe not just one. They have plans and back-up plans and back-ups for the back-ups. And in spite of the warnings, and history, enough people will be outraged and side with the government. This brings me to my final point. What do you think all of the prepositioning of paramilitary assets, caches of ammunition, and the opening of non-descript buildings owned or leased by the federal government are for?
It’s for you and people like you. It’s for those who are turned in by their neighbors, friends, co-workers, and others who are hungry, broke and broken. What we are about to experience will be like it was during the Civil War, only worse. People will be outgunned, surveillance will be everywhere, and it will be much more difficult to hide and fight back. Not impossible, but more difficult.
As I said, you’ve got to think bigger – much bigger. The lies are bigger than most people can imagine. The people at the top are laughing at us. Think about that. They are laughing at us because it’s right in front of our noses. And you know, the bigger the lie…
DH: Yes, the more people will fall for it.
RB: Right. I think we’re done here for now. I’ve given you as much information as I know, as I have seen. Watch the economy – the indicators. Watch for a false flag. We are being baited. Let people pooh-pooh this information, seek information through FOI requests. Not gonna happen. We’re talking about an operation so black and so big, and one that has to be done in the next few years, under Obama.
This is something that is international in scope. The plan is international, and is dedicated to the dismantling or destruction of America. It’s happening right in front of us, but too few can actually see it.
DH: I’m sure you, well… We’ll be accused of scaring people without citable evidence.
RB: People need to wake up. Believe me or don’t. It’s their choice."

Witness GRNC taking on the lies, distortions and corruption as leftists explain their positions on your Second Amendment rights.
Excerpts from the WXII "Great Gun Debate" February 8, 2013.
This is old but for those who haven't seen it, its good for a morning laugh and makes
a good rebuttal when some leftist tells you guns should only be in the hands of police and the military. We all know they are the only ones "professional enough" to use

The Sultan of Knish must be William Shakespeare and William Buckley reincarnated.
I would hate to have a public debate with him from an opposing point of view.
"The Muslim world has chosen to live by the sword and the free world must learn to use the sword, if it is not to live under their swords. But there is a difference between these two swords, between the Sword and the Colt, which made all men equal, and the sword and the drone. It is the same as the difference between Sparta and Athens and between Mecca and Jerusalem.
There are nations and peoples that live by the sword, producing nothing of worth, living and priding themselves on their plunder while remaining deaf to their own worthlessness outside the realm of the sword. And there are nations and peoples to whom the sword is a tool, rather than a final answer, an implement which works alongside the hoe and the pen and the many other implements that make a society great. "

“Didn't know the Marines had to take the bolts out of their rifles for the Inaugural,” an email forwarded to Gun Rights Examiner from a United States Marine Corps source observed. “Wonder if someone can explain why [they] would be marching in the inaugural parade with no bolts in their rifles!”
The email linked to a YouTube video of the 57th Presidential Inaugural Parade, embedded in this column, featuring Bravo Company Marines from the Marine Barracks Washington. Sure enough, the observation in the email is confirmed by watching the video, with screen shots provided in the photo and slide show accompanying this article.
This prompted an internet search to see if others had also noticed, and the Blur-Brain blog had.
“The bolts have been removed from the rifles rendering them unable to fire a round,” the post stated. “Apparently Obama’s Secret Service doesn’t trust the USMC. Simply searching each guy to make sure he didn’t have a live round hidden on him wasn’t enough, they had to make sure the guns were inoperable.
The few, the proud, the ... untrusted?
Wondering if this may be an inauguration policy of long standing that transcends administrations, Gun Rights Examiner made a cursory search and found something even more curious. In the 2009 Inaugural Parade, the United States Navy marched with rifles that had not been so disabled (see 1:24 into that video plus the final slide).
This raises the question of why the administration felt it necessary to make this change now, particularly with concerns being raised about military involvement in domestic affairs, litmus tests on top brass willingness to fire on American citizens alleged by a heretofore prominent and credible Nobel Prize nominee, a "terrorism" policy that allows for assassinating Americans without due process, rising concerns over deployment of domestic drones, and publicized opposition among many in the USMC to presidential policies such as women in combat, as well as having been the most resistant military branch to ending “don’t ask, don’t tell.”
Add to this concerns over administration agencies buying up ammunition in massive quantities, the renewed destruction of expended military ammunition brass in contravention of the Defense Appropriations Act, and Obama’s post-election confidence in dropping the mask on his previously “under the radar” citizen disarmament plans, and the change becomes another piece that fits in a puzzle that’s forming an increasingly disturbing picture.

THE BOTTLE OF WINE
For all of you who are married, were married, wish you were married or wish you were not married, this is something to smile about the next time you see a bottle of wine:
A driver in Arizona saw an elderly Navajo walking on the side of the road. As the trip was a long and quiet one, the driver stopped and asked if the Navajo would like a ride.
With a silent nod of thanks, the Indian got into the car.
Resuming the journey the driver vainly tried to make small talk. The Navajo just sat silently, looking intently, studying every little detail, finally noticing a brown bag on the seat next to the driver.
"What in bag?" asked the old Indian.
The driver looked down at the brown bag and said: "It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my spouse."
The Navajo was silent for a moment or two. Then, speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, said:
"Good trade . . .."
Any one of these egregious abuses of power is about one hundred times more criminal than Watergate or Monicagate. My question is, when will the "people" do something about this criminal activity by a rogue regime? Are you going to wait until they start loading people on the trains? Or are you hoping that if you push enough people in front of you the Troll will wait to eat you last? Which one of the next rights as a citizen your ancestors fought and died for will they have to take before you say enough is enough? The following is only a partial list of illegal corrupt activity known, yet even the Conservative legislators do not seem outraged by this.
Operation 'Fast and Furious'
A Federal Government program smuggling weapons to the Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel, these "Fast and Furious" weapons have been responsible for thousands of Mexican citizen's deaths, "Fast and Furious" weapons were found at the murder scenes of two Federal Agents, and "Fast and Furious" weapons have been found at crime scenes throughout Mexico and the south western U.S.
Not only was the government illegally smuggling weapons to the Cartels, they attempted to use the weapons found in Mexico, weapons that THEY HAD SENT THERE, to try and undercut the Constitution, specifically the Second Amendment by crying about the "river of guns" going to Mexico and the need to control these illicit weapons.
To date NOT ONE Government Official has been identified and/or held responsible.
It is a documented fact that Obama, the State Dept, the DOJ (including the ATF hierarchy), the FBI, the CIA, and the DEA were ALL aware of this unconstitutional and illegal "operation".
The cover-up is extensive and DOCUMENTED.
The Benghazi Attack
This attack resulted in the direct deaths of four Americans and the deaths of other "support" forces. These Americans were left to die on a foreign battlefield... "Left To Die" ...Let that sink in a minute, many of you served and you know the code we lived by, leave no one behind. Yet these men were abandoned and left to die, again it is a documented fact that Obama, the State Dept, the CIA, and the DoD were all aware of the calls for support.
There were assets in the area that could have assisted these men, there were TWO Drones feeding the attack in real time to the State Dept, the NSA, the DoD, and the White House Situation Room. It has been reported many times by many individuals that Obama, watched the attack in real time. The attack lasted for EIGHT HOURS, yet no support was sent.
To date NOT ONE Government Official has been identified and/or held responsible, for these deaths, NOT ONE.
Again, the cover-up is extensive and DOCUMENTED.
The Green Loans
Obama sent BILLIONS in "assistance" or loans to Solar and other "Green" companies, many of these companies filed for bankruptcy almost immediately afterwards and emptied BILLIONS in taxpayer funds from the government coffers, while their executives pulled in MILLIONS in "retirement" and severance packages.
It has been shown that there was collusion between government officials, government regulators and these businesses. Funds were funneled to these companies and re funneled to various political campaigns.
BILLIONS were lost and to date NOT ONE Government Official has been identified and/or held responsible for this money laundering operation.
Again, the cover-up is extensive and DOCUMENTED

Some time ago I switched to 22 cal LR to teach my classes with as it held down the cost for my students. It cost about 2 cents per round. Now, if you can find 22 LR anywhere it is about 10 cents plus per round. 22 Cal is the canary in the coal mine. It ran out first and no one knows when they will get any more, if ever.
A friend of mine who builds ARs (featured on this page) can't get bolt carriers. He is getting further behind has ramped up production to 24/7 and will soon stop accepting new orders. Ed of EdsGun says the following;
"I highlighted the ammo shortage status. Not good for 9 months ! I do also believe that the sentence to the last is true! So, get ready physically and mentally.
This is a small part of what going on in the industry. There is nothing on the shelves to sell everything has to be made.
Doug Ross has several important info updates about the status of the gun industry currently, followed by an inventory update. We traveled to Texas for Industry meetings concerning the shortages, here's what we were told.
Smith & Wesson- is running at Full capacity making 300+ guns/day-mainly M&P pistols. They are unable to produce any more guns to help with the shortages.
RUGER: Plans to increase from 75% to 100% in the next 90 days.
FNH: Moving from 50% production to 75% by Feb 1st and 100% by March 1. Remington-Maxed out!
Armalite: Maxed out.
DPMS: Can't get enough parts to produce any more product.
COLT: Production runs increasing weekly...bottle necked by Bolt carrier's.
LWRC:Making only black guns, running at full capacity...can't get enough gun quality steel to make barrels.
Springfield Armory: Only company who can meet demand but are running 30-45 days behind.
AMMO: Every caliber is now allocated! We are looking at a nation wide shortage of all calibers over the next 9 months. All plants are producing as much ammo as possible with 1 BILLION rounds produced weekly. Most is military followed by law enforcement, and civilians are third in line.
MAGPUL is behind 1 MILLION mags, do not expect any large quantities of magpul anytime soon.
RELOADERS... ALL Remington, Winchester, CCI & Federal primers are going to ammo FIRST. There are no extra's for reloading purposes... it could be 6-9 months before things get caught up. Sorry for the bleak news, but now we know what to expect in the coming months. Stay tuned, we'll keep you posted.
DISTRIBUTORS HAVE NOTHING ON THE SHELVES WHAT COMES IN DAILY GOES OUT, NOTHING IN RESERVE..
Bow Owens says they didn’t know when they’d be getting anything back in stock, from magazines to rifles to pistols. Manufacturers were running full-bore, but couldn’t come close to keeping up with market demand. It wasn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that were sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands, M1 carbines, and Enfield .303s were gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants -- of which every gun store always seems to have 10-20 -- were gone. So was their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it.
Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.
Barack Obama, Dianne Feinstein and the rest of the Statists have done more to promote gun ownership than the NRA ever did. Well done, Democrats!"

Evading Asset Capture
New blog I found that will contain some great information for like minded people, enjoy.
Welcome to New Rhodesia Dispatch. We are pro-liberty, pro-markets, pro-freedom, and pro- the Constitution as it stood in 1913. We’re anti Wickard and anti-Feinstein. We’re Christian.
You’re welcome to email me at email@example.com. John DeWitt was a Massachusetts Anti-Federalist, and you can learn more about him here.
Let’s address a few preliminary issues: I do not and this site will not support racism. Like James Wesley, Rawles and others say, good people and bad people come in all colors. It is true that support for collectivism is higher among some ethnic groups than others, and NRD is not going to shy away from being objective, realistic, and truthful. But we are anti-socialist, anti-collectivist, and anti-entitlement, not anti- any particular demographic. The battle is with ideas, not groups. If people want to break free of their group’s general pro-collectvist stance, they’re welcome at NRD.

THIRTY YEARS AGO Margaret Thatcher turned Britain into the world’s leading centre of “thinking the unthinkable”. Today that distinction has passed to Sweden. The streets of Stockholm are awash with the blood of sacred cows. The think-tanks are brimful of new ideas. The erstwhile champion of the “third way” is now pursuing a far more interesting brand of politics.
Sweden has reduced public spending as a proportion of GDP from 67% in 1993 to 49% today. It could soon have a smaller state than Britain. It has also cut the top marginal tax rate by 27 percentage points since 1983, to 57%, and scrapped a mare’s nest of taxes on property, gifts, wealth and inheritance. This year it is cutting the corporate-tax rate from 26.3% to 22%.
To patriots who are discouraged about the lack of public outrage and the general population's response to recent abuses by the current regime, this is heartening.
President Reagan's "silent majority" has not been heard from yet. The elitist progressive rulers will face their day in court, rest assured.
"The poll, conducted from Jan. 9th-13th among 1,500 adults, found that 53% of those surveyed think the federal government threatens their own personal rights and freedoms, the highest level found since Pew began polling on this subject in 1995. This outcome also represents the first time since Pew began polling that a majority of Americans saw the government as a threat. In March of 2010, 47% of those polled said that they viewed government as a threat to freedom.
The latest Pew survey also included questions about gun laws. Not surprisingly, given the current national controversy about gun control and Second Amendment rights, 62% of gun owners believe that the federal government poses a fundamental threat to their constitutional rights and freedom.
In addition, the survey found that, over the past two years, the percentage of conservative Republicans who view the government as a threat to freedom has jumped from 62% to 76%. 54% of conservatives consider government to be a “major threat” to their constitutional rights.
Also not surprising are the views of liberal Democrats, as expressed through the Pew poll. During President George W. Bush’s second term, 44% of liberal Democrats said they were “angry” at the federal government, yet in the latest survey, that number has dropped to 8%."

Pay is competitive
"You can't take it with you". When it's time to take the long dirt nap, all you leave with is your honor,integrity, and valued relationships. Everything else is minor."
Research by the Cato Institute gives the real data on gun use by law-abiding citizens. I encourage all readers who wish to know the reality of what a disarmed America would look like to read this report. Arm yourself with the facts.
"News organizations generally report incidents in which criminals used guns to
perpetrate their crimes. What typically goes
unreported are instances in which ordinary
citizens use guns to put a stop to criminal
attacks. To be sure, if a criminal is actually
shot, the incident may very well be covered,
but the vast majority of the defensive uses
of guns do not involve shootings. Fearing
for their lives, most criminals flee the scene
once they realize that their intended target
is an armed citizen. With no shots, no injuries, and no suspect in custody, news organizations typically do not report such incidents, or there is only a terse paragraph in the newspaper. In this milieu, where criminal gun use makes the evening news, but
self-defense cases get little or no coverage, it
is understandable why many people would
develop negative opinions concerning guns
and gun use."

Hats off to our new NC Congress for getting right to work and correcting many laws and
helping to avoid abuses that have occurred in other regions. These are just the ones concerning 2A. They are introducing bills in other needed areas as well like voter fraud.
The North Carolina General Assembly convened this week and several pro-gun reforms have already been introduced.
House Bill 17, introduced by state Representative Justin Burr (R-67), would remove the prohibition on Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) holders carrying a concealed firearm into any establishment licensed to serve alcohol. In addition, the legislation would make information regarding permittees accessible only to law enforcement.
Also introduced, House Bill 49 by state Representative Phil Shepard (R-15), would prohibit employers from imposing restrictions on employees that would not allow the employees to store firearms and/or ammunition in their locked motor vehicle while parked on the employer's property.
In the Senate, state Senator Stan Bingham (R-33) has introduced Senate Bill 28, which is similar to the provisions of HB 17 that would offer confidentiality for CHP holders.
The NRA is working with several legislators on introducing additional pro-gun reforms, as well as analyzing legislation that may have a negative impact on gun owners and hunters. We will be sure to continue to provide updates on North Carolina legislation, but please contact your state Representative and urge him or her to support HB 17 and HB 49, and contact your state Senator and urge him or her to support SB 28.
