The event’s purpose was to leverage last month’s school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut into support for a set of new executive orders and legislative proposals relating to what supporters euphemistically refer to as “gun control.”
In an evolutionary and biological sense, Obama has a point. The primary of function of human society IS to protect our young so that they can grow up, reproduce and perpetuate that society.
On the other hand Obama, in his role as president, represents the single most powerful and counter-productive human institution relating to that goal: The state. The power grabs he just put on the state’s agenda serve only the interests of that institution — not just instead of, but at the expense of, the children he’s exploiting as political capital in pursuit of that agenda (and in particular, as the Center for a Stateless Society’s Nathan Goodman points out, the children of the besieged minority communities Obama’s party claims to offer protection to).
In the wake of the Aurora, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut shootings, it is both unfortunate and predictable that the media-induced hysteria would be followed by a massive assault against gun rights in the United States.
In the subsequent campaign of fear and hysteria promoted by the mainstream media and elected officials, gun owners and gun rights activists have responded in a variety of ways. From public statements and debates, to lobbying, and simple outreach to those who misunderstand gun nomenclature or actual gun crime statistics, gun rights supporters have frantically tried to use all means at their disposal to have their message heard.
Also predictably, the anti-gun crowd promoters such as Piers Morgan, Dianne Feinstein, and a host of others have largely responded with vitriol, ad-hominem attacks, and factually inaccurate arguments.
Indeed, when analyzing the debate between the two sides, it is virtually impossible to give even marginal credence to the anti-gun argument in terms of a legitimate argument. As one who considers himself capable of examining an opinion in opposition to my own with reasonable objectivity in order to determine the merit of the opinion I held when I came to the table, I can honestly say that rarely has there been a debate in which one set of participants were so clearly wrong and off the mark.
In fact, the current gun “debate” bears a stark resemblance to the debate surrounding the passage of the Patriot Act shortly after 9/11. Then, as now, a sizable portion of the population had been terrified by an event of a questionable nature into enthusiastically surrendering their freedom for a perception of security. Then, as now, anecdotes of Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s USSR, and MAO’s China were ineffective in staving off the mad rush toward a police/surveillance state. Then, as now, logic and reason were shunned in favor of the fear that drove the population forward into even greater bondage.
That fear still drives the American people headlong into a state of scientific dictatorship fueled by a philosophy older than all the world’s established religions and enforced by a steroid infused aggression and brute force that has existed for just as long.
Today, just as after 9/11, it remains virtually impossible to reach any individual who has made up his mind to be afraid and who has become personally and emotionally invested in a political opinion that he subconsciously sees as providing him with some level of social cohesion.
Have you noticed lately how many people when they say “Goodbye” (which actually means “God be with you” – a blessing more than a farewell), also tuck in a little “I love you”? I pray that there were a bunch of them earlier this month in Newtown, Connecticut.
We sometimes address the problem of evil by asking “Why do bad things happen to good people?” That, of course, is the wrong question. The real question is, “What are we going to do about it?” Even though we often feel so powerless in the face of evil.
One cartoon shows a child asking God: “How can you permit such violence in our schools?” And God answers: “I’m not allowed in your schools.”
Lots of finger pointing: it’s the guns, or the video games, or our divorce rate, or that over half of our children are being raised by a single (working) parent, or the meds that the shooter was – or wasn’t – taking, or the ad nauseam media coverage offering blueprints for other enraged crazies, or the violent wars worldwide, or the feeble politicos who fail to provide persuasive, prophetic leadership, or the example we give to our kids that major conflict is resolved by bombs and bullets…
I have known for a long time that US news is agenda-driven. Tonight (December 18) I was made aware of the extent to which agenda-driven US news drives the news of the rest of the world.
For reasons unbeknownst to me, Russia Today Moscow requested a live TV interview via Skype about the Newtown, Connecticut, school shootings that killed 20 young children and several adults. I was interested to know what was Moscow’s interest in the shootings, and I agreed to the interview.
I was surprised to see that RT Moscow’s interest was to spread the official US story of the shootings and to ask me if I thought “assault weapons” would be banned as a consequence.
Many things can be an assault weapon. A baseball bat, a knife, a fist, a foot, a single shot .22 rifle, a double-barrel shotgun, a fireplace poker, a six-shot revolver, a brick, a sword, a bow and arrow, a lance. A person can add many items to this short list.
Gun-control advocates have defined “assault weapon” to be a semi-automatic civilian version of military weapons, such as AR-15, the civilian version of the military M-16, and AK-47. During the Clinton administration the civilian version of these weapons was not permitted to have various harmless features because the features made the rifles have a military appearance, and the weapons were restricted to magazines that held no more than ten rounds.
Firearms industry expert and part-time police officer Mark S. Mann (pseudonym) lives in Connecticut, just miles from the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary. He’s been following the story closely, talking to cops he knows in the area and he will be reporting for us as this story develops.
Mark says there are just too many inconsistencies with the ‘official’ story and he says, “things don’t add up.” As we all now know, regardless of whether the mass murders of children and adults at Sandy Hook was a false flag operation, or the actions of a lone nut, the establishment intends to use this event to attack the Constitutional rights of law abiding Americans – they’re coming after the guns. And just like Stuart Rhodes of Oath Keepers, Mark says, “We will not tolerate any abuses to our 2nd Amendment rights.”
Wow, the intensity as we approach the Dark Rift of our Galaxy is palpable. Besides sessions, I find myself alternately sleeping and praying. There is just. So. Much. Energy. If the desperation of the Powers that Be/Soon to be Were is any indication, then we really do fight with powers and principalities, cloaked in the costumes and characters of 3Dality.
It always surprises me when otherwise rational, loving and reasonably aware people start spouting trance-speak regarding current events. Having not voluntarily watched any television for all but two years since 1991, I forget that one reason I can do this intuitive work stems from natural gifts … but that the other reason comes from not routinely subjecting myself to tell-LIE-vision.
In the interest of public service and in the hopes of some news viewers recognizing the religious pomp and substitute spirituality that allow media to create their truth, I’m sharing this post by Jon Rappoport. Those people committed to media brainwashing will dismiss his words, but those people who’ve begun to go hmmmm may finally have some gears click into place. No time like the present to reclaim your own reality creation powers. Someone snuck into your brain and hid ‘em, but I promise you, they’re still available for your own use – if you claim them. We are each more powerful than the media and Hollywood give us permission to imagine. When are we going to reclaim our own mental, emotional and spiritual sovereignty? As soon as we do that, we’ll find the physical blessings, too. Here’s Jon:
