Disingenuousness and deception with regard to discussions of gun control in America
“Fundamental Transformation” to Chill the Blood

During an ABC Nightline interview broadcast on December 26, 2012, President Barack Obama said that one benefit of his re-election was the ability “to have men with guns around at all times.” This week, Obama signed a bill extending armed Secret Service protection for former US presidents to the remainder of their natural lives.
I’m sure the irony of all this juxtaposed against his ongoing effort to disarm law-abiding Americans has not escaped the reader.
On January 3, Keith Ratliff, a 32 year-old firearms enthusiast, was found fatally shot in the head in his Carnesville, Georgia home. Police are investigating the case as a homicide. Ratliff’s YouTube channel for fellow firearm enthusiasts was ranked as one of the top 10 channels on YouTube, with 3.4 million subscribers and more than 537 million views.
Although I have no proof, my inclination is to suspect that the Obama administration or one of its surrogates is responsible for Ratliff’s death, the first of many such executions that will take place in order to silence individuals whom the government deems a threat to their oligarchical collectivist agenda.
There; I’ve said it.
I am sick to death over the disingenuousness and deception with regard to discussions of gun control in America and the blatant attempts of the Obama administration and the political left to capitalize on recent violence perpetrated with firearms (some of which, for the record, may have been orchestrated) in order to coalesce the power of a government that edges closer to tyranny with each passing hour. And although it can be easily explained, the obliviousness on the part of a large segment of the American people (who will ultimately accept whatever measure our would-be dictator devises) of what is occurring before their very eyes is equally sickening.
We – and here I mean everyone from the water cooler to the radio mic – need to stop talking about politicians being ignorant of firearms laws, crime, and the Second Amendment. They know the realities of these things quite well; their rhetoric is propaganda calculated to deceive those they have helped to render ignorant on those very subjects. The objective is an unarmed populace, unable to resist a tyrannical government. How many times do we have to say it?
On January 7, radio personality Glenn Beck advised his listeners “For those of you who are still playing the political game, I suggest you stop.” He also referenced having come by information concerning “GOP operatives” who are involved in things “so shady” that “it will probably destroy the GOP.”
Americans can no longer look to the minority of virtuous men and women among Republicans in office; these have been sold out by Republican leaders who have either accepted or endorsed the makeover of America into a socialist state. The trial balloon launched this week by Vice President Joe Biden vis-à-vis the President using the Executive Order to regulate guns was calculated to determine the public’s reaction to unilateral action on the part of Obama.
The only people upon which Americans can depend will be each other, private organizations, and a few intrepid state and county officials. Days ago, Sheriff Denny Peyman of Jackson County Kentucky said that his office “will not comply with any federal action which violates the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution which I swore to uphold.”
We can be encouraged by such gestures, but we must also bear in mind that the White House’s gun-grabbing plan is but one component in the larger agenda to transform America, as it were. Barack Obama is indeed playing a significant part in this tragic comedy, but he only wishes to see America brought down; whether it is by Islamofascists, communism, economic upheaval, or a misadventurous asteroid matters little to him, in my view.
If that of which informed conservative and libertarians are already aware is deeply disturbing, Obama’s designs, and measures which his administration have already set into motion behind the scenes will truly chill the blood. God Willing, these will also come to light before it is too late.
Whether there is still time to implement effective remedies to them remains to be seen.
