  • Button_Newsboy-Extra_animatedJudge Rules on ICE Agent Lawsuit and John Morton Called to Resign
    Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has called for ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] Director, John Morton, to resign, stating that there can be no immigration reform as long as he is in charge. In 2010, 7000 ICE agents stepped forward and cast a vote of “No Confidence” in John Morton. In September of 2012, 75,000 ICE agents signed a petition protesting the Obama administration’s policy of prosecutorial discretion – if you are in US illegally, you can stay if you meet Obama’s Presidential Priority requirements and you will be released back into the community of legal citizens. Ten agents sued in October 2012 and on January 30th, 2013, a judge ruled the agents have standing to continue with their suit to overturn the Morton Memo on prosecutorial discretion and the DREAM directive on deferred action. Senator Sessions stated: What purpose is served to pass new laws if the ones we have are ignored by the officials charged with enforcing them. Not enforcing laws is against Article II of the US Constitution, the prescribed duties of the President of the United States and executive branch officers. Here are two quotes what agents had to experience daily: (1) The lack of technical expertise and field experience has resulted in a priority of providing bingo nights, dance lessons, and hanging plant to criminals, instead of addressing safe and responsible detention reforms …; (2) Unlike any other agency in the nation, ICE officers will be prevented from searching detainees housed in ICE facilities allowing weapons, drugs and other contraband into detention centers putting detainees, ICE officers and contract guards at risk.

    Our government is broken. It has been so for more than three decades; however, BH Obama (and friends) has accelerated the economic, social, and constitutional demise of our nation. According to an Inspector General’s report, there are 850,000 individuals as deportable and believed to be in the United States. They are now lost in the system. Some are working for TSA and in other sensitive areas, receiving food stamps, housing, education grants, drivers licenses and some are undoubtedly voting. It might be noted that Alejandro Mayorkas is a leader behind the operation of fraudulent ID for illegal aliens – the same man that Bill Clinton pardoned on a convicted major drug trafficking charge – after Senator Hillary Clinton received $200,000 from the drug trafficker’s father, also suspected of drug trafficking. Barack Obama appointed this man to the ICE in 2009 and was confirmed by the US Senate! Mayorkas is believed to be working with US Attorney General Eric Holder. Tell me again how association does not implicate someone.
  • Pro-Firearm Reforms Advance in Wyoming [Casper Star Tribune-WND] … A bill that would allow firearms in elementary schools and secondary schools, colleges and universities and sporting events on government-owned property passed the first vote in the Wyoming House … Retired school principal Rep. Jerry Paxton, R-Encampment, said the bill needs to be altered to allow school administrators to have input on who is carrying in the building. … House Bill 105 was amended Wednesday to allow both concealed and open carry in schools as long as people have state-issued concealed carry permits. As originally written, it only allowed concealed carry. … The House passed House Bill 216 on first reading, which would allow judges to decide who can have a deadly weapon in a courtroom. … The House gave initial approval to a bill that would make it a felony to enforce stricter federal gun regulations created after last month’s elementary school shootings in Newton, Conn … House Bill 104 would prohibit public servants from enforcing any federal law or presidential executive order that limits the size of magazines and firearms or ban semiautomatic weapons – measures President Barack Obama called for after the Connecticut shootings.
    Colorado is another state who refuses to accept Obama and congressional legislation that is against the Second Amendment.
    Meanwhile, the Obama/Feinstein legislative assault on defensive weapons was formally introduced into the Senate this week.
    As Mark Alexander wrote at Patriot Post: … But the gun confiscators have no intention of relinquishing momentum they shamefully constructed on the caskets of children — using a genuine tragedy as fuel for an emotionally driven campaign to advance a politically disingenuous gun-control agenda. Feinstein reiterated that her objective is to remove all guns from circulation. “Will it only be ‘assault weapons’? No, most likely there will be a package put together.” To win the legislative battle, they are using a two-edged approach. First, obfuscation. They endeavor to “really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way,” as Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder said. They are redefining the Second Amendment as being codified to protect “the traditions of hunting and sport shooting,” in order to divert attention from the real reason our Founders codified the right to keep and bear arms: To support and defend our Constitution, and the Liberty it enshrines, as the last defense against statist politicos and tyrants. Second, vilification. They are framing the contest as one between the evil NRA and the noble objective of “keeping our children safe.” “The NRA is venal,” Feinstein proclaimed. “The NRA has become an institution of gun manufacturers.” Her House lap dog, Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), was even more vicious, smearing the NRA and its members as “enablers of mass murder.” Obama, the master of obfuscation, argued this week that it’s difficult to amend the Second Amendment by executive order or legislative action because of our hunting traditions. “If you grew up and your dad gave you a hunting rifle when you were 10, and you went out and spent the day with him and your uncles, and that became part of your family’s traditions, you can see why you’d be pretty protective of that.” … Some Americans think Obama and his NeoCom cadres are intent on “fundamentally transforming the United States of America” into a nation under authoritarian government with oppressive and dictatorial powers. Who could imagine that Obama wants to subordinate Rule of Law to the rule of men? Where would they find an idea like that, and the strange notion that the Second Amendment is all about defending against such transformations?Even the Communist Party USA, which issued a strong statement in support of Obama/Feinstein, concurred with Obama: “There is no basis for claiming the Second Amendment was intended to permit unregulated personal acquisition of firearms … for ‘protection,’ including ‘protection from the government.'”
