Fight for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms

A message from the CCRKBA.

Obama Lies-Senate Uses Sneak Attack On Guns

As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama deliberately and repeatedly lied to America's 90 million gun owners across the country when he insisted that he would not try to take away anyone's firearms, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said. Now House Republicans are trying to add an amendment to the public lands "Ominous Spending" lands bill that would codify the right to carry concealed weapons in national parks, less than a week after a federal judge blocked a similar proposal.

But, Senate leaders have devised a strategy to use a bill that had already passed the House -- H.R. 146, a proposal to protect Revolutionary War battlefields -- and strip its contents, replacing it with the "Ominous Spending" lands bill. Because the House already passed H.R. 146, the Rules Committee can approve a closed rule that would block a motion to recommit, eliminating the GOP's best procedural chance to stymie the bill. The chamber would only need a simple majority vote to concur with the Senate amendment. CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, reacting to the "Ominous Spending" lands bill tactic to force more gun control on U.S. citizen's said "the sneak attack on guns reveals the Democrats clear intention to outlaw guns everywhere" "Obama "has been lying to the nation when he says he will not take guns away."

U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly placed an injunction on the Interior rule last week. The judge's ruling infringed on the rights of gun owners as drivers in areas such as Washington, D.C., often drive through federal park lands every day. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) said "It's ridiculous for people to be subject to two different sets of regulations simply because their car moved a few feet," Bishop said in a statement. "The judge's decision last week was wrong."

"We warned America that Obama's 'support' for the Second Amendment was empty rhetoric," he stated, "and now his support for the "Ominous Spending" lands bill shows Obama was lying, and now gun rights may be dying." "Right now," said Gottlieb, "I wouldn't take Obama's word if he said it rains a lot in Seattle. Apparently, law-abiding gun owners have nothing to fear unless they drive to work in Washington DC and park or drive in the wrong place."

In order to stop Obama and his fellow Democrat gun-grabbers-we need to let the Congress know with thousands of faxes telling them to leave guns alone. Americans like you who understand what our Founding Fathers envisioned for our nation...and who are willing to fight to defend our Constitution and for what it stands. So please, help the Citizens Committee and me defeat those who wish to gut and trash the United States Constitution. Help me flood the U.S. Senate and the House with the sea of FAXES big enough to drown each and every Senator and Representative willing to vote away the Second Amendment.

Keep calling your Senators and Congressmen today, toll free numbers include 1.877.851.6437 and 1.866.220.0044, or call toll AND REGISTER YOU'RE OUTRAGE at ongoing efforts to take guns away! CALL PRESIDENT OBAMA, 202.456.1111 and 202.456.1414 expressing your disdain and ABSOLUTE REJECTION of all GUN BANS. DO NOT BE SILENCED - MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD! NOTE: We need TENS OF THOUSANDS of faxes and PHONE CALLS and EMAILS delivered to ALL Senators and Representatives right away! For our projects to be successful, we must count on the voluntary financial support from individuals like you who care.

Thank you. I know I can count on you.

La Raza Studies = Racist indoctrination

This is our tax money at work, please read this article! This is only getting worse, and this article and more like it need to be read by all of us and sent to our friends.

(National Review Online) This column was written by Liam Julian.

The name of the nation’s most visible, self-defined Latino civil-rights organization, the National Council of La Raza, translates as the National Council of The Race. The official website denies it, of course, but we have dictionaries. That controversial term - La Raza - is gaining currency: Some K-12 public schools now teach something called “Raza Studies.”Like those in Tucson, for example. The Tucson Unified School District (TUSD) has, in fact, welcomed Raza Studies in its classrooms for about a decade, but it’s been mighty secretive about the association.

What, exactly, is Raza Studies? Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne asked that question in November 2007 when he inquired if it wouldn’t be too much trouble for TUSD to send to him the Raza curricula it was teaching and the textbooks from which it taught them. Actually, TUSD replied to Horne, meeting his request would be a heckuva lot of trouble.

Then the local papers piled on Arizona’s superintendent. The first sentence of a November 26th editorial in the Tucson Citizen read, “Memo to Tom Horne: Butt out.” Another editorial, titled “Horne meddling in TUSD’s ethnic studies efforts,” this one in Tucson’s Arizona Daily Star, noted that “Students enroll in these classes because they cover information that is not offered in other classes. While U.S. history classes and textbooks do a better job than those of the past of including more about our shared history, much is left out.”

What is left out of traditional syllabi, of course, is the grievance and distortion. When Horne finally acquired the program materials he requested, they included texts with titles such as Occupied America and The Pedagogy of Oppression. And according to John Ward, a Tucson teacher who saw his U.S. history course coopted by the Raza Studies department, the Raza curriculum’s focus is “that Mexican-Americans were and continue to be victims of a racist American society driven by the interests of middle and upper-class whites.”

When Ward raised concerns about Raza Studies (which is part of TUSD’s larger Ethnic Studies department) he was, despite being Hispanic himself, called a racist and eventually reassigned to another course. Ward told a reporter from the Arizona Republic that by the time he left the Raza Studies class, he had observed a definite change in the students: “An angry tone. They taught them not to trust their teachers, not to trust the system. They taught them the system wasn’t worth trusting.”

A persuasive case can and should be made that teaching students history and literature (not to mention science and math) through some concocted ethnic perspective that the pupils supposedly possess is balderdash. It does Hispanic youngsters a profound disservice to predicate their educations on ethnic identity, to have them skip the great works of literature and read only tracts by, say, Mexican authors, and to teach them only the history that involves Latin America(ns).But when an ethnically based education, which is bad enough, transmogrifies into an ethnically based education of grievance and oppression that vilifies the United States and anyone with white skin - well, this is simply untenable.

And yet this product is exactly that which goes by the name Raza Studies and that Tucson blithely pushes.Moreover, the city is intransigent about the whole thing. To valid concerns about its Raza Studies department, the school board responded last month, according to the Arizona Republic, “by announcing plans to hugely expand the [entire Ethnic Studies] program, making it a required course of studies for freshmen. And, eventually, expanding it into elementary schools.” Within a year, it seems, all of Tucson’s children will be taught based on their ethnicities distinctive curricula that will share no common denominator as strong as the condemnation of whites and of the United States.

The school district is also sponsoring in two weeks, in partnership with the University of Arizona School of Education, the 10th Annual Institute for Transformative Education seminar, at which “Classroom teachers will have the opportunity to learn … the areas of Latino critical race theory, critical race theory, critical multicultural education, Chicana/o studies, ethnic studies, cultural studies, critical pedagogy, and critical race pedagogy.” Ugh.To defend and then expand an educational program that reveres Che Guevara, that paints American history as a series of lamentable and dishonorable events, that divides students by their ethnicities and then attempts to instill in them a defiant stance toward authority and country is a form of noxious educational malpractice. But beyond that, it’s a direct challenge to the values that millions of Americans hold dear and will this Friday, on the Fourth of July, celebrate. One hopes that the citizens of Tucson have had their fill of this nonsense in their schools, and that they’ll stand up and say so.
What is worse is that to date this is what is still being taught in Tucson.

Read what a teacher in this district has to say on the matter here.

What is the President hiding?

Is the biggest political crime in American history taking place right before our eyes? Is the man in the White House INELIGIBLE, according to the Constitution, to sit in the Oval Office... is he a FRAUD... a USURPER? Barack Hussein Obama could put the issue to rest right now by simply releasing his ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE! But he WON'T release his ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE. In fact, he is actively RESISTING efforts to compel him to release his ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE. He's dug in his heels. He has teams of lawyers fighting efforts to get him to release his ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE, while his underlings look down their noses at the American people and call these legitimate requests "garbage." And the one pivotal question that those who attempt to dismiss the controversy cannot answer is: If Barack Hussein Obama has nothing to hide, what's the problem? The more he resists, the more you have to wonder. Meanwhile the liberal press is trying to drag this story into a dark alley and bludgeon it to death. It's time for you and me to weigh in and FORCE THE ISSUE! Let's call-out the liberal media. Let them know they must report this story and that there is nowhere to run or hide.

FACT #1: Article 2, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States, SPECIFICALLY states, "No person except a natural born citizen of the United States, at the time of adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President..." It's NOT a technicality, or lunacy on the part of our Founding Fathers. It is a specific statement within a document that forms the basis for ALL of our laws and not open to interpretation (unless the entire Constitution should be now open to interpretation).

FACT #2: In order to be a "natural born citizen," you must be born in the United States or, if you are born abroad, you CAN (if specific circumstances are met) inherit citizenship status from your parents. If he was born abroad, then that's a problem for Barack Hussein Obama because his father was NOT a citizen of the United States and his mother had not lived in the United States the required amount of time after attaining the age of majority when Obama was born - meaning SHE COULD NOT pass her citizenship on to Obama.

FACT #3: If Barack Hussein Obama WAS NOT born in the United States, he IS NOT a "natural born citizen" and if that is the case, Obama is guilty of perpetuating the most massive fraud in the history of the United States!

FACT #4: Barack Hussein Obama has ACTIVELY REFUSED to show his ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE to the people who elected him. Under Hawaiian law, only Obama can legally release the document but HE JUST WON'T DO IT! Why not?

FACT #5: Obama has multiple teams of lawyers helping him shield the document from the prying eyes of the American people. Why? FACT #6: Instead of producing an ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE, Team Obama produced another document - a "Certification of Live Birth" - and said, in effect, "Here's his Birth Certificate! Now shut up!" And when it comes to FACT #6, T eam Obama engaged in a sleight-of-hand that is going unnoticed by the American people, because the liberal media refuses to scrutinize the actions of Barack Hussein Obama.

A CERTIFICATION of Live Birth and a Birth Certificate (A CERTIFICATE of Live Birth)... [notice the difference in the words "certification" and "certificate"] ARE TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT DOCUMENTS.

A CERTIFICATION of Live Birth - the document that Team Obama produced - is a document that essentially proves that you exist and Barack Hussein Obama most certainly EXISTS - that point is not in dispute.

A CERTIFICATE of Live Birth (an ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE) - on the other hand contains more information. It gives the specific location of your birth, the hospital, the time of birth, the attending physician etc.

Obama's Certificate of Live Birth Hawaii Certificate of Live Birth

So what is the big deal? Simply put a CERTIFICATION of Live Birth CAN contain ERRORS. The State of Hawaii provide an concrete example of this point! Hawaii maintains programs to encourage property ownership for native Hawaiians. And pursuant to those programs, the Hawaii Department of Home Lands (DHHL) states the following on its website: "In order to process your application, DHHL utilizes information that is found only on the original Certificate of Live Birth, which is either black or green. This is a more complete record of your birth than the Certification of Live Birth (a computer-generated printout). Submitting the original Certificate of Live Birth will save you time and money since the computer-generated Certification requires additional verification by DHHL." If the State of Hawaii DOES NOT accept its own CERTIFICATION of Live Birth as proof that an individual was actually born in Hawaii, why should we! If Hawaii REQUIRES an ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE , WHY SHOULDN'T WE!

Transparency Indeed... Article 2, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States, states in part, "No person except a natural born citizen of the United States, at the time of adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President."

That means neither Arnold Schwarzenegger nor George Soros can be President of the United States. Not EVER! Neither can Osama bin Laden. It also means, as previously stated, that IF Barack Obama was born outside the United States, he is not eligible to be President of the United States.

And Obama's paternal grandmother said, she was present at Obama's birth, which took place in Mombasa in what is now Kenya. So where was Obama born? Only an ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE can answer that question (not the Certification of Live Birth that Obama produced) - and Obama has multiple teams of lawyers dedicated to the proposition that nobody - but NOBODY - gets to see the one document that can clear up this controversy. That's INSANE!

It's OUTRAGEOUS that Obama continues to cover up the truth! IT'S IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO CONCLUDE THAT HE'S HIDING SOMETHING! In his grandiose MEMORANDUM FOR THE HEADS OF EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENTS AND AGENCIES, Obama proclaimed: "SUBJECT: Transparency and Open Government: My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government."

Just pretty words. They mean absolutely nothing to Barack Obama, the non-transparent president - IF INDEED HE IS THE PRESIDENT.

Simple Truths

Some simple truths taken from here

The Declaration of Independence declares that "the laws of Nature and Nature's God" are the source of man's rights - not government. The natural rights listed and protected by the Bill of Rights existed before government, and in no way depend on government for their existence. The U.S. Supreme Court has declared this fact. America was founded as a republic - a "nation of laws." In a republic the government is formed by - and constrained by - laws. But America has decayed into a democracy. In a democracy voters can pass any law they please, and government is virtually unlimited in its ability to make laws, interpret the laws as it sees fit, and apply the laws with increasing force - to control the citizens.An individual must know his RIGHTS, and claim them, or they simply cease to exist.

The Declaration of Independence declares that each man has natural rights that emanate from God. Natural rights are declared in the Declaration of Independence to be "unalienable," meaning these rights cannot be separated from the individual. By establishing a republic, our Founding Fathers declared "unalienable" rights for each individual that cannot be altered by civil laws.The government of the United States was created by the Constitution, which transferred 17 limited powers to the national government of the new "Republic." The Founding Fathers added a common law attachment to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, which further clarified and limited the intended powers of government.Man's laws are known as civil law, from the Latin root word civilus, meaning citizen. Bouvier's Law Dictionary states, "the civil law is what a people establishes for itself." In a democracy there is no such thing as a natural right also know as God-given right, since laws can be passed to control, limit or eliminate anything. In a democracy there are "civil rights" established by civil law which are, legally speaking, civil privileges granted by man's government.Yet today government can and does pass laws as it pleases without limitation and control. The laws of government now clearly override the natural rights of American individuals. America is no longer a republic - it is a democracy.

America's freedom and liberty was established by anti-big government gun owners with "unregistered assault rifles," the individual men of the local militias of the several states.The Greek philosopher Aristotle proclaimed 2,300 years ago that the prevalence of privately owned weapons was the best indicator of whether a nation was free. It is still a true measure of freedom today. Free men own guns, slaves do not.The United States Code (the laws of Congress) states in 10 USC 311(a) that, "The Militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age..." The US Supreme Court ruled in US v. Miller that when called into action the militia was to show up "bearing arms supplied by themselves..." Black's Law Dictionary defines militia as, "The body of citizens in a state" and not the "regular troops of a standing army." The militia is distinctly different from the National Guard or the US military forces. Our Founding Fathers warned that the militia must never be replaced by a standing army. Today, our nation has the world's most powerful military; 57 government agencies carry guns and most have their own SWAT teams; and local police are trained in para-military operations.As our Founding Fathers warned - the demise of the militia and rise of a standing army would spell the end of freedom and liberty.

The most misunderstood phrase in the English language is the "United States." The misunderstanding comes from the fact that there are actually 3 different and legally separate entities referred to as the "United States."Many people in this country today are proud to be citizen's of the United States, but that is not what our Founding Fathers intended for us. They intended us to be citizens of our state, and the it was the states that formed the united States of America. (the States of America that united).The Bill of Rights was written to protect the state citizens from the centralized government, but it does not protect the citizens of the United States from the laws of the U.S. Congress. Only "citizens of the several states" enjoy the protection of the Bill of Rights.To enjoy the intended private and personal rights that create the freedoms and liberty of America, one must understand the legal scheme that government is and how it relys on the citizens misunderstanding of the term "United States."

Educate yourselves and then educate your neighbors. Then tell them to educate their neighbors. This is how it starts!

The eyes are opening

I have been noticing that it is not all roses in the press for B Hussein Obama any more. I have been watching local newscasts which are critical of all the spending. I am not seeing the free pass given to Mr. Obama on every issue that he once had.

Now, that is not to say that they are treating him like they treated George Bush. Far from it, yet I think the luster is starting to fade. The thing about liberals is they want to implement their socialist agenda but they do not want to be held to it themselves.

They pushed Obama to the front and propagandized his campaign because he was "the one"

And now we have reckless spending gone wild and no checks or balances to keep back the mountain of special projects and bills that the liberals in The House and Senate have just been drooling over pushing into place.

I actually heard a very liberal journalist say he liked a lot of Obama's ideas but that he needed to pull back and stop because he is only hurting the economy. His only problem is that he thinks when the economy is righted that then it would be a good time for these bone headed spending orgies.

If I hear one more person tell me that 95% of Americans are going to get a tax cut I think I'll scream. The amount of spending already passed could not be paid if you collected all of the wealth that anyone making $75,000 a year or more had.

That's right! Every last penny taken from everyone creating wealth of 75,000 dollars or more would not come close to touching the deficit that they are creating. And yet we are still being sold the line from the Obama administration that they inherited a deficit and yada yada yada. So if inheriting a deficit was bad why would quadrupling it be a good thing?

If the trend continues, maybe we will get to see journalists actually start asking these questions.

The tide is turning, and not a moment too soon!

1. 40% of all workers in L. A. County ( L.. A. County has 10.2 million people)are working for cash and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card. And California is asking for a bail out from the Federal Government.
2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.
3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.
4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal , whose births were paid for by taxpayers.
5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally
6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.
7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.
8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.
9. 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking.
10. In L. A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish. (There are 10.2 million people in L. A. County )
(All 10 of the above are from the Los Angeles Times)
Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare. Over 70% of the United States ' annual population growth (and over 90% of California , Florida , and New York ) results from immigration. 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens. We are a bunch of fools for letting this continue HOW CAN YOU HELP ? Send copies of this to at least two other people. 100 would be even better.
This is only one State...............

Inspiring Reagan!

Just a sample of what the Real Great Communicator had to his own words. The following are quotes from President Reagan.

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.

Approximately 80% of our air pollution stems from hydrocarbons released by vegetation, so let's not go overboard in setting and enforcing tough emission standards from man-made sources.

Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.

Government always finds a need for whatever money it gets.

Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them.

Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.

Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.

Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Governments tend not to solve problems, only to rearrange them.

Heroes may not be braver than anyone else. They're just braver five minutes longer.

History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap.

How do you tell a communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin.

If the federal government had been around when the Creator was putting His hand to this state, Indiana wouldn't be here. It'd still be waiting for an environmental impact statement.

If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.

No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government Problems, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!
Who will be the next Ronald Reagan and lead The Conservative Revolution?

More reason to love Obama

Of course the title of this post is absolutely a joke. I don't care if he could sell water to a drowning man, it doesn't do squat for the condition of this country.

Found out today that I will be joining the countless others out there who have lost their jobs. Why? Because there are not people who want the sort of projects that my company builds? Because there is no money in the pockets of these investors? No and no!

What happened is that Obama and the rest of the democratic elites have been talking down the economy for so long. They needed the country's economy to tank and so with the help of the liberally biased media they sold America a story of how bad the economy was. It does not take long for life to imitate art, or so they say. We as Americans got scared to spend our money. And when we stop spending money soon jobs are lost.

For example: I sell widgets. I employ a team of 20 to manufacture them and pay them well to do it. We turn a good profit and demand is high. Then our market base is told over and over and over again that the markets are failing and the sky is falling, yada yada yada. Soon, our base is buying way fewer widgets in expectation of a bad economy. Sales and demand drop so low I must now lay off half of my work force. These are real people with real families and now no paycheck. Because of their joblessness the commodities they used to purchase are now out of reach and so the sellers of those products see the demand go down and are forced to decrease their work force. It is a cycle that repeats and affects each and every business eventually. What about the suppliers of the parts I needed to make my widgets? They probably go through the same thing because I am ordering so much fewer parts. Pretty soon the doom and gloom is real, and that is when the liberals win.

This is not a joke, the liberals wanted this crisis. And as Obama's chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel said,"You never want a serious crisis to go to waste." He goes on to say that in a crisis you can get things passed normally you would not be able to. And why is that? Because they paint a bleak picture that they say they want to avoid. Well, Mr. Obama, you have really done it now. One year ago the Dow Jones was over 14,000 points. When you got elected it had dropped to 9,000 +. Just this week it dropped to below 7,000 and despite a small increase Wed. is expected to continue to drop.

Those with the money have no confidence in anything you are doing Mr. President. You say you do not want a big government and yet that is all you have done. You keep taking money that my kids and grandkids will have to pay back and you sir, are throwing it away on pet projects and ear marks, just like you said you were not going to do.

Thank you Mr. President for the opportunity to be patriotic and pay more taxes, oh wait, I guess I can't pay taxes if I am unemployed. Except someone told me today that they actually tax your unemployment. What the FLip!? Is this not tax money to begin with? Now I hope to find something to do to make ends meet. I do not want the government to help me out at all. Heck, the government is the reason for my problems.

Mr. President if you want to help me,



That is all!
