Editors Note (David McKalip, M.D.): The Statists are at it again. They seek a disarmed citizenry to make it easier to impose the command and control of big government over them. It is far easier to ensure citizens submit to tyranny when the only weapons available are in the hands of the military and the Police. Crazy you say? Just look at Obama’s typical deceptive bait and switch tactics. He claims that “common sense” gun laws would prevent murders – trotting out his talking points selectively when a tragic shooting happens in Oregon. He ignores that it was a DISARMED CITIZENRY in the school’s Gun Free Zone that allowed the mass shooting. He always ignores the daily slaughter in gun control capitol Chicago. He then glowingly speaks of low murder rates in Great Britain and Australia. Note to the tyrant in chief, guns are OUTLAWED and were confiscated in those countries. Note #2 to the tyrant in chief, our constitution protects gun ownership as a safeguard against out-of-control government! President Obama may know what that means since his out of control government uses unconstitutional actions to impose his tyranny on the citizens of the U.S. every day! The stories below debunk the gun control myths and they point to a promising development in the Florida legislature: open carry laws. As a proud conceal carry permit holder and frequent carrier, I look forward to a more comfortable and more effective means of protecting myself and helping to provide security to the community. It is clear that in states with open carry, crime is lower. If you see a civilized person walking around with a gun on their belt while out to dinner with their family, would you feel safer in that restaurant? I know I would. When a thug with his pants around his butt and one hand on his belt buckle walks into a convenience store, do you feel safer? I don’t. An armed society is a polite society.
“You won’t get gun control by disarming law-abiding citizens. There’s only one way to get real gun control: Disarm the thugs and the criminals, lock them up and if you don’t actually throw away the key, at least lose it for a long time… It’s a nasty truth, but those who seek to inflict harm are not fazed by gun controllers. I happen to know this from personal experience.” Ronald Reagan, 1983 after surviving the Hinkley’s 1981 assassination attempt.

Open-carry bill passes Florida House subcommittee “Gun owners in Florida with concealed-carry permits are one step closer to getting the right to openly carry those weapons in public, under legislation that cleared a House subcommittee today by a 8-4 vote.“While we will certainly hear from shrill voices on the left that open carry will lead to the wild, wild west, that is not borne out by any of the data we have,” Gaetz said. He said U.S. Department of Justice statistics from 2012 actually show less violent crime in states with open-carry laws.Florida is one of only five states and the District of Columbia, which prohibit openly carrying firearms and other restricted weapons.”
Our Kids Don’t Need Gun Control Laws, They Need Fathers Spot ON!! “In all cases, the media and Obama diligently counted how many guns the killers had in their homes but failed to notice how many parents they had in their homes. That’s quite a detail to overlook… These mass killings happen with relative frequency, and they are usually not perpetrated by men who grew up in strong families with both biological parents present. Divorce and fatherlessness ..tie these cases together. No other factor — gun laws, politics, racism, etc. — comes close. Dylann Roof was a white guy killing black people, Vester Flanagan was a black guy killing white people. Their races were different, yet the one line that cut right through both of them was divorce. Even in cases where the killer’s parents are still married, a closer inspection will often reveal a home filled with instability and chaos.”
The truth about gun deaths: numbers and actual solutions “Straight from the CDC..we can find out that of those 32,352 gun deaths, 21,175 were suicides. That leaves us with 11,177 deaths to account for…FBI records that 8,583 deaths were murders involving guns of all types. The remaining 2,500 were accounted for by accidents…As to the big ticket media item of real criminals committing murders and other crimes with guns, we’ve identified the lion’s share of those above. They are buying guns illegally because they can get away with it. That’s already illegal. The answer here isn’t new laws to restrict the law abiding who aren’t going to be committing crimes in the first place. We need to be enforcing the laws we already have.”
Rep. Jim Jordan Says House Will Impeach Head of IRS – Breitbart Hope this is true-The case is strong!! “It is something that has to be done,” Jordan, chair of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, told members of the Young Americans Foundation. “If we don’t hold some people accountable in the executive branch for the executive overreach we’ve seen in [the Obama] administration, then they’ll never get the message.”Three months ago Jordan, was only willing to say that the House “should consider impeaching” Koskinen.Two months ago, in July, Jordan said the House should impeach Koskinen if Obama doesn’t fire him.With the resignation of Speaker Boehner, Jordan has changed verbs.Now, instead of calling for the House to “consider impeaching” Koskinen, he is saying it “will impeach” Koskinen…Read the bill of indictment against Koskinen set forward by Jordan and DeSantis.”
DHS Confesses: No Databases Exist To Vet Syrian Refugees Read More At Investor’s Business Daily: Americans should not feel safe!! “As the WH prepares to dump another 10,000 Syrian refugees on U.S. cities, it assures us these mostly Muslim men undergo a “robust screening” process. Not so, admits the agency responsible for such vetting.Under grilling Sessions, head of the Senate subcommittee on immigration, the Homeland Security official in charge of vetting Syrian and other foreign Muslim refugees confessed that no police or intelligence databases exist to check the backgrounds of incoming refugees against criminal and terrorist records…Sessions further inquired: “You don’t have their criminal records, you don’t have the computer database that you can check?” Confessed Emrich: “In many countries the U.S. accepts refugees from, the country did not have extensive data holdings.”
AP INVESTIGATION: NUCLEAR SMUGGLERS SOUGHT EXTREMIST BUYERS Nuclear smugglers sought terrorist buyers!! “The previously unpublicized case is one of at least 4 attempts in 5 years in which criminal networks sought to sell radioactive material to extremists through Moldova.. One investigation uncovered an attempt to sell bomb-grade uranium to buyer from the Middle East,..In that operation.. a middleman for the gang repeatedly ranted with hatred for America as he focused on smuggling essential material for an atomic bomb and blueprints..But.. Kingpins got away, and those arrested evaded long prison sentences, sometimes quickly returning to nuclear smuggling..in most of the operations arrests were made after samples of nuclear material had been obtained rather than the larger quantities. That means that if smugglers did have access to the bulk of material they offered, it remains in criminal hands.”
Thomas Sowell: Good riddance! Must Read!! “Contrary to the thinking.. among today’s Repub leaders, Reagan did not go to Dem voters and pander to them by offering a watered-down version of what Dems were offering. He took his case to them and talked — yes, talked — to let them know what his own agenda offered to them and to the country.Today’s Repubs who proclaim a need to “reach out” to a wider constituency almost invariably mean pandering to those groups’ current beliefs, not showing them how your agenda and your principles .. apply to their situation and to the good of the country. Reagan swung enough Dems to win elections.. There are issues on which Repubs can appeal to blacks — school choice being just one..And it is unlikely that all Hispanic voters want open borders, through which criminals can come in and settle in their communities.”
Florida’s 10 Biggest Bang-for-Your-Buck Colleges “Financial software specialists SmartAsset looked at 5 factors to determine the top 10 best-value colleges and universities in each state. The company’s detailed report includes tuition, student living costs, scholarship and grant offerings, retention rate and most important, average starting salaries.To capture what students get in return, the company looked at student retention rate and the average starting salary. With that ranking, they created an index where the No. 1 school was assigned 100.Here’s how the Florida schools stacked up in order of bang-for-buck ranking:..”
Illegal Immigrants Could Elect Hillary Must Read!! Obama and Dems are well aware of this quirk in determining electoral votes!! “Fl (29), Ohio (18) and VA (13) collectively have 60 electoral votes. Adding these Obama states to the Romney 24 gives the next GOP presidential standard-bearer 266 electoral votes, four short of the magic 270. But had the House of Reps been apportioned by citizen-only figures, the GOP nominee would get 270 electoral votes by carrying these 27 states. There would be no need to win an additional Dem leaning state.But under the current system, they must. Which one might it be? Obama carried D.C. and 16 states by double-digit margins. 4 other states were carried by comfortable percentages and demographically appear very likely in the Dem column.. The GOP’s best hopes would seem to be Colorado (9 electoral votes), Iowa (6), and New Hampshire (4).”
U.S. welfare flows to Cuba “Cuban immigrants are cashing in on U.S. welfare and returning to the island, making a mockery of the premise that they are refugees fleeing persecution. Some stay for months at a time and the U.S. government keeps paying.Cubans’ unique access to food stamps, disability money ..is meant to help them build new lives in America. Yet it’s helping some finance their lives on the communist island.America’s generosity has grown into an entitlement that exceeds $680 million a year and is exploited with ease. No agency tracks the scope of the abuse, but a Sun Sentinel investigation found it is widespread.Fed-up Floridians are reporting their neighbors and relatives for accepting government aid while shuttling back and forth to the island, selling goods in Cuba, and leaving their benefit cards in the U.S. for others to use while they are away.”
Labor unions awarded millions from federal agencies Corrupt and despicable! “Last week, for example, the Department of Energy awarded a $900,000-plus grant for the development of a safety regimen for workers facing hazardous duties in energy and waste jobs. It didn’t go to a safety firm or training school but rather to a labor union: Akron International Chemical Workers Union. And the local Democratic congressman in Ohio got to score some political points with his blue-collar constituents by announcing it.“It’s clearly an insight into how this president and his administration have used taxpayer funds to accomplish political purposes,” said Rick Manning, president of Americans for Limited Government. “Congress needs to look at this, and dig out these grants specifically given to unions and eliminate them.”
Jobs up only for immigrants, +14,000, down 262,000 for ‘native-borns’ “For a third month in a row, native-born Americans saw their job numbers tumble while immigrants experience solid gains.According to the montly Bureau of Labor Statistics numbers just released, “foreign-born” jobs numbers increased by 14,000, while those for “native-born” Americans fell off a cliff, by 262,000…Over the past three months, the job numbers for native-born have dropped by nearly 1 million, exactly the number of jobs President Obama promised to add when he ran for re-election in 2012.During that period, jobs for immigrants grew 218,000.”..
Guy Benson – ‘Hostage Takers:’ Dems Block Bill to Fund Veterans, Demanding More Spending Elsewhere What hypocrites!! “Setting aside arguments over the wisdom and efficacy of using a shutdown threat as political leverage, Senate Dems are currently engaged in precisely this sort of conduct, for reasons that aren’t likely to impress many voters. Yesterday, Reid and friends filibustered a spending bill that would fund the VA :..Repubs won victory last year, promising voters that they’d control fed spending and strengthen America’s military. They have passed budgets that reflect their priorities.Now that the GOP majorities are attempting to implement those priorities, spendthrift Dems are resorting to filibusters/veto threats to force Repubs to agree to hike fed spending across the board..and they’re willing to obstruct votes to fund veterans benefits as a means of coercing their opponents into doing something they campaigned against.”
4 Highlights From Obama’s Ridiculous Cyber Agreement With China What a joke!! “Last week, the WH announced that the U.S. and China had agreed to stop cyber economic espionage and work together to stop cybercrime.Well, that was easy, wasn’t it? ..the president has just made another paper agreement that will do little to change the behavior of bad actors…China is not a partner and it is not a victim—it is the perpetrator. By granting China moral equivalence with the U.S., Obama has sacrificed the moral high ground, giving the Chinese exactly what they want—legitimacy. The U.S. has now all but adopted the Chinese position on cyber policy, surrendering to Chinese demands in exchange for a nice sounding press release. What is worse, this agreement will probably stop the U.S. from implementing any of the cyber sanctions waiting in the wings against China.”
