On August 1, 2009–just seven months into President Barack Obama’s first term–former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin predicted Obama would attempt to leverage health care to “take away” the Second Amendment rights of Americans.
In a speech to National Rifle Association members in Anchorage, Alaska, Palin said Americans should be “wary” of this “tie-in” because Obama would attempt to “take away our rights under the guise of some new health care plan”:
And by the way, [with] health care being so big in D.C. right now, be wary when some kind of tie-in occurs. Because it will crop up: a tie-in with guns in an attempt to take away our rights under the guise of some new health care plan. You know that this is coming–that the two issues will somehow crop up and they’ll be tied together. So we have to be very wary of that.

A report from a Russian expert reveals that the US and Russia are plunging into a Cold War as Washington’s policies towards Moscow are the blame for the growing tensions between these two global superpowers, but Russian President Vladimir Putin‘s pent up anti-American sentiment may be coming to the surface as well as these tensions increase.
The so-called reset between the two nations is dead as the Obama administration has never truly cooperated with Moscow, but instead they keep pushing the same policies imposed on the Russians for the last twenty years.
This US policy of advancing NATO towards Russia’s borders, building missile defense systems on Russia’s borders, and interfering in Russia’s internal politics have brought about these tensions that have plunged the two nations into another Cold War.

As NewsBusters has been reporting for years, there is no objective press anymore – only sycophants gushing and fawning over the political leaders they agree with and admire.
More evidence of this came Friday from the Washington Examiner‘s Charlie Spiering who shared with readers some startling observations in Buzzfeed reporter Michael Hastings‘ new book including journalists swooning over Barack Obama at an off-the-record event held at a bar in Orlando, Florida, last year:
“The behavior of the assembled press corps was telling. Everyone, myself included, swooned. Swooned! Head over heels. One or two might have even lost their minds,” Hastings writes, as each reporter had a chance to speak personally with the president. “We were all, on some level, deeply obsessed with Obama, crushing hard, still a little love there. This was nerd heaven, a politico’s paradise, the subject himself moving among us — shaking our hands, slapping our shoulders!”

When I published “JFK: What we know now that we didn’t know then” (21 November 2011),
I had become convinced by the discovery of the obfuscated face of a figure in the doorway area of a famous photograph taken by AP photographer James “Ike” Altgens (technically known as the “Altgens6″), together with having recently learned that Lee Oswald had told Will Fritz (the homicide detective who had interrogated him) that he had been “out with Bill Shelley in front” during the assassination, that this figure had to have been Lee himself.
The only reason to have altered the photo would have been that someone had been there who should not have been there, where the obvious candidate for that role was the designated “patsy”.
We now believe that that person was actually Bill Shelley, no doubt erased on the presumption that, if it were discovered that Bill Shelley had been there, too many questions would have been raised about what Lee had said to Fritz.
The Right Calls Obama a Dictator, but Sarah Palin Disarmed the Alaska Civil Militia… “Yes, Sarah Palin, as executive of the state, took away their guns. And no, conservatives, you can’t have it both ways. Clearly they gave Sarah Palin the report and she took “
Irony knows no bounds when it comes to the Tea Party.
In 2008, Tea Party Queen and Shoot ‘Em Up and Hang ‘Em Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) disarmed brigade members of the Alaska State Defense Force (think volunteer militia) at the recommendation of the state military officials, based on a report by an investigator with the Washington National Guard.

Ron Paul on what’s ahead, if the DC gangsters get their way. via LewRockwell.com Recently by Ron Paul: Government Security Is Just Another Kind of Violence
Ron Paul was interviewed on Jan. 17 by Walton and Johnson on their nationally syndicated radio show, which is based in Houston. They discuss Obama’s executive orders on gun control and host of other topics. such as how the tea party undermined itself, the Fed’s destruction of our economy, and much more.
Ron maintains that the freedom movement is alive and well. It is far, far outside of Washington, DC, and in the hands of the spontaneous grassroots activists who arose during Ron’s presidential campaign in 2007. Asked whether there were any guns in the Paul household, he jokingly replied, “if I looked around a little, I’m sure I could find one or two”.

……The challenges in 1981 were not that unlike those in 2009. History records that Reagan met those challenges, lifted our spirits, and did his best to reduce the size of government. It also records that Obama has exacerbated our problems and done his best to increase the size of government and its intrusion into our lives.
Obama’s legacy thus far has been a polarized society based on class warfare; a society in which millions more Americans are purchasing guns in anticipation of an attack on the Second Amendment, and a government that menaces the Constitution. His second inaugural speech will be as filled with false promises and failed policies as his first.
