GUN CONTROL – TAKING A SECOND LOOK

Monday, March 26th, 2018

 

The historical facts (see below)  regarding  what can  happen when  the people can no longer defend themselves against tyrannical governments should be impressed on the students who are marching in protest for more gun control.   Nancy

TAKING A SECOND LOOK

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  

Guns have a long history of debate in both the U.S. and elsewhere and remain a flash point in the minds of many maybe because they are the image of a basic weapon of war and personal defense. Guns have been the employed tool of some, yet the lack of guns exacerbates exposure to violence.

In 2014 Australia, all “registered” guns were outlawed and turned in. In 2015, Ed Chenel, a police chief in that country, confirmed that criminal armed robbery increased by a whopping 40 percent. Homicides in the State of Victoria alone are up 300 percent. You know why.

Acting on mostly the emotions of blame, history memorialized:

In 1938, Germany established gun control. By 1945, 13 million Jews and others were exterminated.

In 1929, the USSR established gun control. By 1953, about 20 million dissidents were terminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, were neutralized.

In 1935, China established gun control. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political voices of a different opinion, were eliminated.

In 1970, Uganda established gun control. By 1979, 300,000 Christians, became unaccounted for.

Accept this fact of reality — armed people will never willingly load themselves into railroad boxcars.

VA SOCIAL WORKER FIRED FOR HAVING A CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT BUT NOT A GUN

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

 

THE BLAZE

Virginia social worker claims she was fired from job for simply having a concealed carry permit — but not a gun

A young Virginia woman’s story is going viral over the weekend after she claims she was fired from her job as a social worker for simply possessing a permit to carry concealed weapons.

The woman claims that at the time of her termination, she wasn’t carrying a weapon.

What happened?

Storm Durham, who was until Friday a social worker for the city of Roanoke, posted on social media that she was fired from her job for being a legal concealed carry permittee and was escorted out of her workplace by three police officers upon learning of her termination because, as she claimed, she was deemed a “safety risk.” At the time, Durham said she was not in possession of a firearm.

The 22-year-old woman later went to her Facebook page to explain the full story.

In a lengthy post, Durham explained she was fired simply for having the concealed carry permit. She said she never had a firearm or concealed weapon while at work.

“I was fired today due to having a concealed carry permit. Was my gun on me? No. Has it ever been on me during my job, or visits, or anything related to work? No. When I told them that it has never been on me during work, what did they say? ‘How do we know that.’ Search me. Do I have a criminal record? No,” she wrote.

Durham, who said she is 5’2″ and just 140 pounds, went on to question why she needed to be escorted out of her office by three police officers and why she was deemed a “serious safety concerns to the building.”

She wrote:

I have a concealed carry permit. I own guns. I hunt. I target shoot. I represent Women hunters and outdoorswomen. Does that make me a criminal? Does that make me a safety risk to others? A big enough safety risk to be escorted by three Roanoke City Police officers? So scary and threatening that I need to be treated like a criminal? To be humiliated and looked down upon for owning a gun? For legally having a gun, registering that gun, and having the appropriate documentation for that gun?

Later in her post, Durham said her employer should be “ashamed” for its actions, for firing “a innocent, clean record, white, female, college graduate who works for a living for legally having, and owning a gun.”

“That was NEVER on their property or in their building. A gun that was never used for evil, but as protection as I am a survivor or sexual assault. Protection for being that white, 22 year old, female. I am an American,” she added.

She later posted a Facebook live video describing more of what happened to her:

Was the termination legal?

According to one interview with Durham, she believes it was not. The Commonwealth of Virginia is a right-to-work and at-will work state, meaning an employer can dismiss employees without reason or notice while employees can quit without reason or notice.

However, since Durham believes her termination was in violation of her Second Amendment rights, she will likely lawyer up and fight her termination, which is what hundreds of people have urged her to do.

HEARTS WITHOUT GOD

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018

 

I agree completely with the comments that Cathy Wright has made regarding this audio video.  Give it 15  minutes of your time  and you will be amazed at the new  information you will hear in Pastor Garrison’s   message.  Please share with your email lists and post the link on facebook.        Thanks to Cathy for sharing with us.  Nancy

Below is a link to a sermon audio about the recent events in Parkland, FL, presented by Pastor Charles Garrison, Calvary Memorial Church in Southern Pines, NC.

 

I am aware that most are so busy that invitations to listen to a man for 42 minutes will likely result in a convenient reason to skip it.  Listen for 15 minutes and you will discover reasons for continuing to the end. Make time to do this without distraction.

 

Our nation is facing a crisis. The problem is not guns. It’s hearts without God; homes without parental discipline; schools without prayer; and, courts without justice.

 

Please feel free to pass this on.

Best,

Cathy

VIDEO PRAGER U VS GOOGLE

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

 

As Dennis Prager knows, we’re getting late in the game to overcome The Silence of the Left (TSOTL). Google owns Youtube and here is a Prager University video by a former Google employee that reveals why Youtube is no longer the open site for exchanging ideas; only “some” ideas.

MOVIE TRAILER – THE DARKEST HOUR – WINSTON CHURCHILL

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

 

One of the finest  movies I have seen in a very long time !   Nancy
The Darkest Hour – the story of Winston Churchill, as the newly appointed British Prime Minister,  facing tremendous pressures from his political cabinet, makes the decision to fight against Hitler rather than try to negotiate a peace that would  hopefully slow down Hitler as he advances swiftly through Europe as one country after another falls to the Nazis.

VIDEO – PUBLIC LIES, PRIVATE TRUTHS: WHY COMMUNISM FELL AND TRUMP WON

Saturday, December 2nd, 2017

 

 Thanks to Mike Scruggs for sharing this video.  His comment is below.  Nancy

This video is a perceptive analysis by the Canadian “Black Pigeon” website, whose author is obviously a media professional. This deals with “political correctness” and its ultimate extreme, which I sometimes refer to as “Salem Witch Trial hysteria.” It is all a destructive fear of admitting and telling the truth despite sometimes tremendous social or physical intimidation. 

It is even pushing some Western nations to cultural and political suicide.   Mike Scruggs

GEORGE ORWELL’S WARNINGS RING TRUE TODAY

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

 

AMERICAN THINKER

Reassessing Orwell to Understand Our Times

By Scott S. Powell   Scott Powell is senior fellow at Discovery Institute in Seattle. Reach him at scottp@discovery.org 
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE :    

What comfortable and disengaged Americans have forgotten is that there are determined enemies within and there is an internal war being waged against the values and institutions that made America a great nation.

The left is the vanguard leading this war, following a course laid out by cultural Marxists such as Antonio Gramsci and members of the Frankfurt School. Becoming influential in the 1930s and beyond, they believed the “long march through the institutions” was the best route to taking power in developed, industrialized societies such as the United States and Europe. This “march” would be a gradual process of radicalization of social and cultural institutions — “the superstructure” — of bourgeois society, which would transform the values and morals of society.  In retrospect, there is a high correlation between the softening of morals over the last two or three generations and the corruption of our family, political, legal and, economic foundation. 

There are three measures of the establishment’s venality.  First there is a high incidence of denial, manifest for instance in little to no discussion of the doubling of national debt in just 9 years to over $20 trillion, and unfunded entitlement liabilities now five times greater than that — conditions inviting financial collapse of the U.S. A second measure of corruption is the establishment’s reluctance to prosecute fellow establishment law breakers in government, which has effectively created a two-tiered justice system. A third measure of establishment corruption is its accommodation of extremist anti-American groups as though they have a legitimate role to play in reform and influence on policy-making — whether in taking down historic monuments, creating sanctuary cities and controlling the nation’s borders, establishing police protocols in law enforcement, fighting wars overseas, or restructuring the economy at home.

Just two or three generations ago, most Americans understood that George Orwell’s classics Animal Farm and 1984 were written to explain how freedom is lost to totalitarianism and the intolerance that accompanies it.  “Big Brother,” a term still casually used to describe an all-knowing governing authority, comes right out of 1984. In the state that Orwell describes, all subjects are continually reminded that “Big Brother is watching you,” by way of constant surveillance through the pervasive use of “telescreens” by the ruling class. 

Orwell’s warnings about totalitarianism written in novel form in Animal Farm and 1984 came shortly after Freidrich Hayek’s Road to Serfdom was published at the end of World War II.  But it took the shocking revelations from books on Nazism and Soviet Communism, by scholars like William Shirer and Robert Conquest in the 1960s, to really make Orwell relevant for teaching to the masses educated in American public schools.  And it was not just an academic exercise insofar as Stalin’s successors Leonid Brezhnev and Alexei Kosygin were at that time rolling tanks into Czechoslovakia to crush all resistance — enforcing the “Iron Curtain” over eight countries in Eastern Europe — the Soviet model of totalitarian control and subservience to Moscow.

BOOK REVIEW – ‘IN ORDER TO LIVE’ – A NORTH KOREAN GIRL’S ESCAPE TO FREEDOM

Monday, October 9th, 2017

 

BOOK REVIEW – ‘IN ORDER TO LIVE’ 

In Order to Live

In Order to Live by Yeonmi Park and Maryanne Vollers

ABOUT IN ORDER TO LIVE

Yeonmi Park has told the harrowing story of her escape from North Korea as a child many times, but never before has she revealed the most intimate and devastating details of the repressive society she was raised in and the enormous price she paid to escape. 

Park’s family was loving and close-knit, but life in North Korea was brutal, practically medieval. Park would regularly go without food and was made to believe that, Kim Jong Il, the country’s dictator, could read her mind. After her father was imprisoned and tortured by the regime for trading on the black-market, a risk he took in order to provide for his wife and two young daughters, Yeonmi and her family were branded as criminals and forced to the cruel margins of North Korean society. With thirteen-year-old Park suffering from a botched appendectomy and weighing a mere sixty pounds, she and her mother were smuggled across the border into China.

I wasn’t dreaming of freedom when I escaped from North Korea. I didn’t even know what it meant to be free. All I knew was that if my family stayed behind, we would probably die—from starvation, from disease, from the inhuman conditions of a prison labor camp. The hunger had become unbearable; I was willing to risk my life for the promise of a bowl of rice. But there was more to our journey than our own survival. My mother and I were searching for my older sister, Eunmi, who had left for China a few days earlier and had not been heard from since.
