TRAIL LIFE USA – BOYS NEED HEROES

Friday, June 11th, 2021

 

TRAIL LIFE USA
Below you will find information on a Christian organization for young boys that 2 of my grandsons are participating in.   I recently attended an awards ceremony where the boys were presented the awards badges that they earned throughout the year.  It was a lovely ceremony with a prayer and a pledge of allegiance to the flag.  Patriotic songs that we were all taught  in school years ago were sung.   The boys had participated in camping trips to the North Carolina mountains and taught camping and survival skills.  The boys were also taken down to Wilmington to tour the Battleship North Carolina and learned of our nation’s history.  The 12 and older boys were trained in marksmanship very similar to what many of us had to do to qualify in our NRA  classes to obtain a concealed carry permit.  I am quite proud to say that my 13 year old grandson won a marksmanship award.  I now call him “dead eye” !!!   
Please take a moment to read about this  organization that instills excellent life skills and love and respect for our nation and our history.  Nancy

Boys Need Heroes

 

During the past month, Trail Life has had a unique opportunity to celebrate real-life heroes across America.

 

Until recently, boys grew up emulating real-life heroes who seemed larger than life. Coonskin caps and six-shooters were the uniforms of boyhood. Boys were enthralled with tales about Teddy Roosevelt, John Glenn, and Davy Crockett. Flannelgraph images taught us about the courage of Noah, the faith of Moses, and the collapse of a giant at the hands of a young shepherd boy.

 

But today, rather than celebrating men for their contributions, culture is dismissing the heroism of our fathers and forefathers and emphasizing their shortcomings.  Marvel characters replace real-life role-models, and virtual video games become substitutes for real-life challenges.

 

In a world devoid of strong courageous heroes and sterilized of risk, boys are disappearing into fantasy.

 

The reality is that boys need the examples and leadership of heroic men. Scripture, history, and personal experiences defy the untethered aims of culture and make clear the significant benefits of godly men who act as traditional masculine role-models for boys.

VIDEO – THE 2ND AMENDMENT DOESN’T CARE ABOUT YOUR SKIN COLOR

Friday, May 21st, 2021

 

Thanks to Cathy Wright for sharing this NRA/North Carolina Lt Governor Mark Robinson video with us.  Nancy

I love this man! 

The dirty little secret that these out-of-touch politicians don’t want you to know is that, while bigots were working with the Klan to take guns away from Black Americans, the NRA was fighting to arm them. The Second Amendment doesn’t care about your skin color.” – Mark Robinson

CLOWARD-PIVEN STRATEGY EXPLAINED

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2021

 

This is exactly what has been  happening in our country and was begun back in 1966.  The Far Left has been using this strategy to overwhelm our systems and destroy our country.  It is very plainly to be seen happening right now on how  our southern border is being overwhelmed and the many onerous bills that are originating in the House of Representatives — HR1 that will destroy our election system, the Equality Act that will ruin women’s sports, the  gun control bills that will reduce our rights to protect ourselves, and a ballooning national debt that will bankrupt our country. The riots from this summer by BLM and Antifa were designed to add fuel to the fire and increase racial strife and further divide our nation.  In order to fight this planned  attack on our country, we have to understand exactly what methods the Far Left/Democrat Party  is using to intimidate and silence us.     Nancy  

CLOWARD-PIVEN STRATEGY  (CPS)

www.discoverthenetworks.org/organizations/clowardpiven-strategy-cps#resources

  • Strategy for forcing political change through orchestrated crisis

First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and his wife Frances Fox Piven — both longtime members of the Democratic Socialists of America, where Piven today is an honorary chair — the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

Inspired by the August 1965 riots in the black district of Watts in Los Angeles — which erupted after police used batons to subdue a black man suspected of drunk driving — Cloward and Piven published an article titled “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty” in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation. Following its publication, The Nation sold an unprecedented 30,000 reprints. Activists were abuzz over the so-called “crisis strategy” or “Cloward-Piven Strategy,” as it came to be called. Many were eager to put it into effect.

PROPOSED GUN CONTROL BILL – HR 127

Wednesday, February 10th, 2021

 

H.R. 127 – NEW PROPOSED GUN LAW

What’s the Worst Part of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s HR 127?

By Mark Chestnut  Freelance writer and editor Mark Chesnut is the owner/editorial director at Red Setter Communications LLC. An avid hunter, shooter and political observer, he has been covering Second Amendment issues and politics on a near-daily basis for the past 20 years.    February 3, 2021

If you’re not living under a rock and still get occasional news from some credible source other than so-called “mainstream” media, you’ve likely heard of House Resolution 127 introduced by U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas.

My first thought when hearing about the legislation was, “How bad could it be?” After all, Lee has in the past proven herself profoundly ignorant of all things firearms related, so surely she couldn’t come up with a measure that would be taken seriously by anyone.

Full disclosure, the measure is chock full of provisions so ridiculous that reading it can make you want to laugh more than it makes you want to cry. Unfortunately, with the party of gun bans and forced buy-backs now controlling the House, Senate and White House, things we used to see as funny aren’t quite so entertaining anymore.

So, what part of the measure is worst? It certainly could be the blatantly illegal firearms registration mandated by the legislation. That portion states in no uncertain terms, “The Attorney General, through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, shall establish a system for licensing the possession of firearms or ammunition in the United States, and for the registration with the Bureau of each firearm present in the United States.”


That provision further states: “Under the firearm registration system, the owner of a firearm shall transmit to the Bureau — (A) the make, model, and serial number of the firearm, the identity of the owner of the firearm, the date the firearm was acquired by the owner, and where the firearm is or will be stored; and (B) a notice specifying the identity of any person to whom, and any period of time during which, the firearm will be loaned to the person.”

NRA PLANS TO SPEND ‘TENS OF MILLIONS’ IN BATTLEGROUND STATES

Saturday, August 8th, 2020

 

n spite of everything the Left is trying to do to destroy the NRA, we have for decades been the strongest defender of America’s freedom at the ballot box and will be again this election!  In an interview published this week, Jason Ouimet, NRA-ILA Executive Director, lays out the NRA’s 2020 strategy for galvanizing tens of millions of NRA members and gun owners.

Exclusive: NRA Plans to Spend ‘Tens of Millions’ in Battleground States

NRA has added 1,000 new members each day since June

freebeacon.com/2020-election/exclusive-nra-plans-to-spend-tens-of-millions-in-battleground-states/

Some say that one individual or one organization can’t make a difference, but we know that’s not true. The results from 2016 are ample evidence and clearly demonstrate the power of our message. The voice of NRA supporters is the voice of America. Without our Second Amendment rights, our freedom will follow.

NRA MEMBERS NEED NOT APPLY

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

 

Apparently, NRA membership is more damaging than being a Republican, a Libertarian, a vegetarian, a member of the ACLU, a member of the Green Party, or even a communist. Doesn’t that make your blood boil? Makes you just want to go out and join the NRA or up-grade your membership! I’m the NRA and I’m freedom’s safest place #2A #FreeToDefend

BIG BANKS TARGET THE 2ND AMENDMENT

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

 

Daniel Greenfield’s article: Big Banks Target the Bill of Rights

Link to Sultan Knish

Posted: 21 Apr 2018 09:58 PM PDT
The American people lent $45 billion to Bank of America during the bailout. That bailout came with a hefty $100 billion guarantee against losses on toxic assets.

That money came from American taxpayers. It came from gun owners and non-gun owners.

But Bank of America has warned that it will refuse to lend money to manufacturers of “assault-style guns”. It had previously announced it was edging away from the coal business to fight global warming.

Citigroup got $476 billion in cash and guarantees: the most of any bank. Now Citibank is repaying the generosity of the American people by requiring its clients to impose their own gun control policies on their stores. Impose gun control on your customers or Citibank will discriminate against you.

Next up is Wells Fargo. The stagecoach brand has said that it’s up to the government to impose gun control, but that it is discussing gun safety with its clients. That’s not enough for outraged activists. The American Federation of Teachers, an organization that runs on extorting money from teachers and taxpayers, warned Wells Fargo that it had to choose between firearms manufacturers and the AFT.

Bank of America announced its move to Bloomberg. The eponymous media outlet is associated with the billionaire sugar daddy of the anti-second amendment lobby. That wasn’t a coincidence. Neither was Citigroup making its announcement through Ed Skyler, Bloomberg’s former Deputy Mayor.
