Reid Stands By His Morally reprehensible Bundy Charges

Conservative blogger Mike Vandenboegh accused Reid of inciting a second bloody civil war: Senator Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada, will be awarded the 2014 “Incitement to Civil War” Trophy by Alabama citizen journalist and Second Amendment activist Mike Vanderboegh at a ceremony at the Cliven Bundy Ranch on Saturday, April 19, 2014. Vanderboegh, who with fellow writer David Codrea first broke the Fast and Furious scandal story in a series on the Internet in December 2010 and January 2011, is in Nevada to show support for the Bundy family and their struggle with the federal government.

Said Vanderboegh, “When Dirty Harry Reid tells us that ‘This isn’t over’ and calls the Bundys and their supporters “‘domestic terrorists’ he is using — literally — the ‘bully pulpit’ to solicit the next American civil war. Reid is a corrupt bully and he understands that this struggle is not about tortoises or cows or even the vast spaces of the American west claimed by the federal government, it is about power, federal power to use naked state-sponsored terrorism to compel the American people to do what the perfumed princes of Harry Reid’s Mandarin class insist is for their own good, even if it kills them.”

“It was the misbehavior and jack-booted thuggery of the Bureau of Land Management run by Reid’s toady that motivated people to come to the Bundys’ defense. This is about two fundamentally different answers to this question: ‘Does the government serve the people as the Founders intended, or will the people be servants of the government?’ Harry Reid believes that the people should serve the government — or else. For inciting the federal government into planning for another Waco, Reid more than deserves this award.”  -- onservativefiringline.com

Members of the Military Should Be Allowed to Carry Concealed Weapons on Base.

Mike Hollingsworth, Author TheGlobalPosition.com
By Mike
Our military members are highly trained in combat which of course includes rifles and hand guns. and I believe they should be allowed to conceal carry for protection.

Mike McCaul is the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee and says there is “some logic” to allowing people trained in warfare on military bases to carry weapons.  “Al Qaeda and terrorists and jihadists are targeting
our military bases,” McCaul said. “That is a fact. … The problem here, and with Fort Hood, the prior Nidal Hasan case, was that they couldn't defend themselves because they were not allowed to carry weapons. So I think the policymakers, Congress, we need to revisit this procedure, this policy, to see if we should arm them so they can better protect themselves.”

In the wake, five years after the first, Fort Hood massacre officials must make policy changes.  I
Fully Trained Military Members Should be Armed on Base
also believe civilians with a conceal carry permit should be allow to carry on base without registration.  After all, what are the positive benefits of registration?    

Yesterday April 2, 2014 we had Four dead, including the gunman, and 16 injured in yet another Fort Hood shooting.  Today, my wife and I are taking a planned trip to Ft. Bragg, Fayetteville, North Carolina.  We both have a N.C. concealed carry permit but because of the time consuming requirement to register our firearms upon arrival, we elect to leave them at home -  which I believe is the main reason for the registration policy.

Following was written after the first tragedy:

"In the aftermath of the Nov. 5, 2009, Fort Hood, Texas massacre, in which 13 people were killed and another 30 injured, officials at Fort Bragg are looking to increase awareness of its weapons registration policy.

The policy, which is based on regulatory guidance set forth in XVIII Airborne Corps and Fort Bragg Regulation 190-12, applies to all persons, both military and civilian, who enter Fort Bragg or travel on its reservation.

Non-compliant military members are subject to judicial or non-judicial punishment, according to the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Their non-compliant civilian counterparts and other government employees may be subject to prosecution in the U.S. Magistrate Court and could possibly be barred from post, referred to civilian authorities or subject to disciplinary and administrative action.

"Under the current regulation, all military or civilian personnel that bring privately-owned firearms onto Fort Bragg are required to register the weapon with the Provost Marshal's Office," explained Fort Bragg's Emergency Services Director George Olavarria."   Jan. 8, 2010 by ReginaldRogers/Paraglide More →

THE IRS SCANDAL … A CHARACTER ISSUE - Rep. Trey Gowdy (SC-R) Rips Into IRS Officials

Mike Hollingsworth, Author TheGlobalPosition.com

"Mr. Gowdy is a Statesman personified. It is abundantly clear that every day he strives to SERVE those that elected him and all citizens of the United States. Serve honorably, passionately and unrelenting. His compass is the Constitution and the laws of the nation above anything else. Every single member of the US Congress and Senate should try to follow the example set by this true Gentleman from South Carolina." Comment by Stevil Reagan

"US Representative Trey Gowdy (SC-R) owns the room as he rips into the wasteful spending of the IRS as he fights back the tears at yesterdays Congressional Oversight Committee . Everyone, no matter what your political affiliation is needs to watch this. It is the reason why the abuses of the IRS affect everyone.

Not only did this rogue government agency abuse its power and purposely targeted conservative and Tea Party organizations, but they also wasted the hard earned tax payer dollars on lavish conventions. Gowdy tells the story of a secretary in his office who asked him to borrow money for a birthday gift for her child, all the while that the IRS was spending $3500 a night on hotel rooms. As people are losing their jobs, homes and health insurance the IRS was spending $4,000,000 at conferences." -- Scared Monkies.com
