Please hold your fire while I reload -- Tee Shirts, Hats, Magazines and Gas Money.

I'm finally getting over the pasting I took while traveling 3000 miles round trip -- two days out, two days back, 24 hours total behind the wheel -- to Colorado and back. My endoscopy is coming up on Tuesday, so perhaps I'll be in better shape after that. Keep me in your prayers. In retrospect, I'll never try that again without a co-driver. Of course, I couldn't have done it at all without the support of the magnificent folks who provided me shelter along the way, sort of a freedom fighter underground railroad. Without that, I couldn't have afforded the hotels to stay at (the rental car and gas sucking up the majority of resources). I'd have done it anyway, but I would have ended up sleeping in the car and showering in truck stops.
You know, for the NRA annual meeting I stayed in a hotel paid for by a reader, and it wasn't cheap. Such help, unsolicited, is humbling beyond belief. I cannot thank those of you who support my work enough. I try to make it count as best I can. May God bless you all.
However, as much money as has been raised by the sales of tee shirts and hats, I now find myself having to reload -- there are several tee shirt sizes and colors that I quickly ran out of. Green seems to be most popular and I am now out of all colors of large, extra large and XXL. In fact, I may restrict the number of colors since I find it harder to deal with the multiplicity -- WalMart I ain't. All orders will be honored, of course, but if you haven't received yours yet, then they're now on backorder and I'll get them out to you as soon as I've reloaded. Same goes for hats. I'll let you know as soon as that happens.
In addition, the Colorado trip has now exhausted the entirety of the magazine stocks, politician grade and freedom fighter grade. I would like to do more smuggling into Connecticut later this year to directly confront THAT beast, so I am dependent upon y'all for reloading.
Bear with me, please.

Gun rights advocates can use social media to better influence political outcomes

“The establishment won with the minimum votes and maximum cover. And they're going to keep winning, because we will continue to issue the same tired, weak, harmless ‘Contact DiFi’ alerts when we could go cutting-edge tactical and focus on vulnerabilities.”

Republicans Who Voted For Loretta Lynch Voted For The Abuse Of Executive Power. "Things have been running a lot smoother since the GOP took over. No more obstruction. Just a lot of capitulation."

Mitch McConnell could have made a case against Obama’s overreach. Now, he’s complicit.

The hoplite "hordes." "American Flag Protest Shuts Down Valdosta State University."

"Hordes of people descended on Valdosta State University, lining the streets and waving flags. Valdosta Police Chief Brian Childress told the Valdosta Daily Times before the demonstration that they 'just want to come down here and support the American flag.'"

Collectivist "Lebensraum." Hartford Courant cartoonist Bob Englehart advocates resettlement of firearm owners.

"In fact, I’d feel safer if those folks were obliged by law to join a well-regulated state militia or of (sic) they just moved somewhere else, such as like-minded Texas."
Courant cartoonist takes personal hatred, frustration out on gun owners
I once got my daughter Zoe in trouble at school when she answered the social studies teacher's question, "What is the difference between socialism and communism?" A socialist she explained (as she had learned at her daddy's knee), was a communist who had not yet found his AK-47 or the will to use it, and a communist was a socialist who had found his AK-47 and would kill you with it. (I told this story to an Oath Keeper's meeting in New York.)
Likewise, a fascist is a national socialist who has not yet worked out how to make the east-bound trains to the camps run on time, or the guts to load them. However, as we see from the above, a latter-day Julius Streicher is now advocating forced resettlement of firearm owners to make his state safer for collectivism.
You know, we've seen this movie before. We know how it ends. Englehart evidently doesn't. Perhaps he should check with Julius Streicher. Of course he would have to go to Hell to do it.
Julius Streicher, Hitler's favorite "journalist" and propagandist, after dancing the executioner's jig at Nuremberg in 1946.

Wisconsin’s Shame: Even Salon Agrees the Raids Were Wrong

Unless lives are at stake, the police should not storm into anyone’s home. The stories of horrific misjudgments and tragic accidents in “no knock” raids and other home incursions are too numerous to link, and the risks incurred are not only wholly unnecessary, the home raid itself is deeply antithetical to a free people’s liberty and should be undertaken as a last resort, not a first resort. But returning to Wisconsin, the raids here were in some ways worse even than the abusive raids we so often see in the drug war and other criminal investigations. Here, the DA was often investigating “crimes” that weren’t crimes at all but rather constitutionally protected issue advocacy. Even when the DA was ostensibly investigating actual potential criminal misconduct, his targets were chosen not so much on the basis of actual evidence but rather proximity to the hated Scott Walker.

My Patriot's Day Speech, 19 April 2015 in Canon City, CO

Never minimize the collectivist appetite for self-deception. “Background checks are more popular in the United States than baseball and kittens.”

Write-Up of the Canon City Patriot's Day Event in the Westcliffe Sangre de Cristo Sentinel.



 Patriot's Day Celebration : A Great Success
by George Gramlich
The Sangre de Cristo Sentinel
Westcliffe, CO.  April 24, 2015, Front Page
The 240th anniversary of “The Shot Heard Around The World” was celebrated in grand style last Saturday at Veterans Park in CaƱon City with music and speeches by local, state and national political figures. April 19, commonly known as “Patriot’s Day,” commemorates the first shot fired at the British in Lexingtion, Massachusetts, in the Revolutionary War in 1775.
The event was organized by Mara and Jack Roberts of the Liberty Action Group in Pueblo West. Sponsors included the Sentinel, Warrior Kit in Pueblo West, and Raft Masters/Colorado Jeep Tours in Cotopaxi. Music was provided by George Rivera and his Fat Chance Blues Band who rocked the crowd from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. when the speech making began.  Joseph Santoro (U.S. Army, Retired) was the Master of Ceremonies for the event and led the audience with the Pledge of Allegiance at 1 p.m.
Speakers included former U.S. Congressman Tom Tancredo, Colorado Senator Kevin Grantham, Colorado Representative James “Jim” Wilson, Chairwoman Becky Mizel of the Pueblo County Republican Party, Custer County Sheriff Shannon Byerly, nationally known patriot Mike Vanderboegh, founder of the Three Percent movement, author of the Sipsey Street Irregulars blog site and one of the sources that broke the Fast and Furious scandal a few years ago, and finally, the featured speaker, the founder of the Oath Keepers Organization (Oathkeepers.org), former U.S. Army paratrooper, and Yale scholar, Stewart Rhodes.
Mike Vanderboegh (who was the featured speaker at last year’s Southern Colorado Patriots Club entry in the Independence Day Parade in Westcliffe) energized the crowd with a rousing speech entitled, “The “Law” Versus the Rule of Law” where he expounded on the unconstitutional laws being passed all over the country and especially here in Colorado with our recently passed unconstitutional gun laws including the magazine ban. Near the end of his speech, Mike’s assistant opened a box and dumped fifty 30-round AR15 magazines in front of Mike on the grass. Mike then ended his speech with these words:
“Here’s a box filled with fifty misdemeanors -- magazines that mysteriously appeared in your state yesterday coincident with my arrival. Now these are “politician grade” magazines. We have smuggled hundreds of perfectly reliable magazines into Connecticut and Colorado over the past two years. We call those “freedom fighter” grade magazines -- you can bet your life on them. But politician-grade magazines. . . well, like politicians they are unreliable and probably won’t work as advertised. They are perfect, therefore, for presentation to anti-gun politicians.
What I am looking for here today is co-conspirators in liberty. I am looking for volunteers to take these misdemeanors, present them to the politicians in this state in whatever otherwise legal method that you choose, along with the message -- “This was smuggled into Colorado in violation of your law. Now that you’ve taken possession of it, why don’t you go arrest yourself?
So the alternative is yours -- will you join the nationwide conspiracy for liberty? It is not without risk, but somewhere the Founders will be smiling. And remember this -- THE ENEMIES OF LIBERTY CAN ONLY MAKE YOU A SLAVE TO THEIR APPETITES WITH YOUR OWN PERMISSION AND INACTION. The choice is yours. Do I have any volunteers?”
At that moment dozens of audience members rushed to the front of the dais and picked up every single one of the “illegal” magazines as the crowd roared with applause.
Finally, the featured speaker, Stewart Rhodes, rose to speak. Mr. Rhodes described the sacrifices that our militia members went through in the Revolutionary War and that victory was achieved because virtually all adult males in the northern colonies were militia members. He spoke eloquently of the need for us to support our sheriff’s posse as they represent the militia concept today. He encouraged all citizens to join the posse as it is the final bulwark for freedom and liberty.
The event concluded with Mr. Santoro leading the entire assembly in taking or re-taking our sacred Oath to the Constitution of the United States of America.

Oath Keepers show up for a public lands dispute in Oregon.
Yet, as of Wednesday, Oath Keepers were still asking for more “boots on the ground,” and Barclay was again supporting the escalating presence.

Census: Record 51 million immigrants in 8 years, will account for 82% of U.S. growth

Legal and illegal immigrants will hit a record high of 51 million in just eight years and eventually account for an astounding 82 percent of all population growth in America, according to new U.S. Census figures. A report from the Center for Immigration Studies that analyzed the statistics said that by 2023, one in seven U.S. residents will be an immigrant, rising to one in five by 2060 when the immigrant population totals 78 million.

VA Sends Veterans’ Medical Info To FBI To Get Their Guns Taken Away

“Some of the veterans we represent have been put on the list simply because they let their spouses pay the family bills or even have the bills paid automatically every month by the bank,” said Connelly, who flagged the documents provided to TheDC for this report. “There is a total lack of due process here, and it is never mentioned in the memo."
