Democrats Admit the Truth – They Want Your Guns

Liberals have always maintained the position that they don’t want to confiscate everyone’s guns, but everyone knows that’s their eventual goal. Whenever someone says they don’t want your guns, just silently add the word “yet” to the end of what they say and that will be the truth. And now some Democrats in Georgia have finally admitted the truth. They want your guns.

Democrats in the Georgia state legislature introduced a bill banning “certain assault weapons, large-capacity magazines, armor-piercing bullets, and incendiary .50 caliber bullets.” Language in the bill also requires confiscation by the state.

Breitbart – The bill–HB 731–is sponsored by Mary Margaret Oliver (D-83rd), Stacey Abrams (D-89th), Carolyn Hugley (D-136th), Pat Gardiner (D-57th), Dar’shun Kendrick (D-93rd), Dee Dawkins-Haigler (D-91st).

According to the text of HB 731, the bill focuses on ” dangerous instrumentalities and practices” by prohibiting the “possession, sale, transport, distribution, or use of certain assault weapons, large capacity magazines, armor-piercing bullets, and incendiary .50 caliber bullets.” […] → Keep reading

Union Fair Share Fees – Blatant Extortion

Earlier this week the Supreme Court heard arguments in Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, a case that asks whether public workers who are not members of a union can be forced to pay “fair share service fees” in order to cover the cost of collective bargaining. A group of California teachers is suing to end the compulsory fees, which costs them $650 per year instead of the $1000 that union members pay. Both the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times have articles indicating that the tone of the proceedings seemed to indicate a majority of the Justices would be voting to overturn a 1977 Supreme Court ruling that allowed the fees.

Los Angeles Times– “Everything that is collectively bargaining is within the political sphere,” Justice Antonin Scalia said.

So the key question, according to Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., is “whether or not individuals can be compelled to support political views that they disagree with.”

Gaystapo Continues Assault On Christianity

I’ve written numerous posts here in the last few years about the homosexual assault on Christianity and the success the Gaystapo is having with chipping away at the First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion.  Conservative Christianity is all that stands between them and the complete mainstreaming of their abominable lifestyles.  They have even acknowledged this fact.  Naturally, the Gaystapo will use every resource possible in their assault on conservative Christianity.  Every day it seems like there is something new that is being done somewhere in our country to further the homosexual war on Christianity.  With the Supreme Court’s legalization of homosexual marriage the assaults have been increasing.  I have no doubt it will get worse.  Let’s look at some of the things they have been up to lately.

If you’ve been reading my blog very long then you are well aware of the bakers in Oregon who found themselves under attack by the Oregon Bureau of Labor […] → Keep reading

Trump Is Right and He’s Done Republicans A Huge Service

Donald Trump’s comments about illegal immigrants seem to be dominating the news lately. The media have made it the story and have taken great glee in reporting about the backlash The Donald is receiving for what he said. Macy’s, Serta mattresses, Univision, NASCAR and NBC have all either cut ties with Trump or announced they will be terminating agreements with him. My first thought after reading all that was to wonder how in the world Donald Trump has his own line of Serta mattresses. Who would want that? But I digress. The Donald doesn’t seem to care about all the damage, saying on Fox & Friends, “I think it’s bad for my brand. I don’t care. You know maybe I’m leading in the polls, but this is certainly not good. I lose customers. I lose people.”

But what exactly was it he said that has made him the target of all this backlash? I’ve seen it misquoted on a few […] → Keep reading

Legalizing Polygamy and Pedophilia

Now that the Supreme Court has created the constitutional right to homosexual marriage it seems prudent to offer an examination to related social issues in order to determine which perversities will be next on the left’s agenda to be normalized. One need not look very hard for the answer.

Polygamy is an obvious choice. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts noted in his dissenting opinion in the Obergefell decision that the majority of the Court seemingly opened the door for polygamy in their maneuvers to legalize that which had no constitutional basis. The majority’s opinion which legalized homosexual marriage could easily be construed as also requiring the legalization of polygamy.

“Although the majority randomly inserts the adjective “two” in various places, it offers no reason at all why the two-person element of the core definition of marriage may be preserved while the man-woman element may not. Indeed, from the standpoint of history and tradition, a leap from opposite-sex marriage […] → Keep reading

Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform – Taking the Piracy Out of Policing

Oklahoma State Senator Kyle Loveless has filed the “Personal Asset Protection Act,” which would drastically change Oklahoma’s civil asset forfeiture law. Currently, civil asset forfeiture law allows law enforcement to seize someone’s assets even though the owner has never been convicted of a crime and in many instances, is never even charged with a crime. The bill, SB838, was filed late in this year’s legislative session and will likely not be acted upon this year. Senator Loveless plans to hold an interim study into civil asset forfeiture law to gather facts and build a coalition of supporters before next year’s session.

The changes that Senator Loveless has proposed are on two main issues. The first is requiring that a conviction be obtained before assets can be seized. The second, and the most likely to be opposed by law enforcement, requires seized assets to be sent to Oklahoma’s general revenue fund instead of being retained by the law enforcement agency making […] → Keep reading

Criminalizing Christianity

With the Supreme Court decision over the homosexual marriage issue expected next month, it could potentially be a landmark decision. The Justices have said their decision will rest on these questions:

Is marriage based on biology or feelings? Who should decide whether to redefine an institution that stretches back for “millennia”? If justices begin tampering with the historically exclusive definition of marriage as the lifelong union of a man and a woman, what would prevent future courts from imposing polygamy, incest or pedophilia-based marriage on the nation?

Justice Scalia noted that if the Court rules that homosexual marriage is a constitutional right, then pastors, rabbis, priests and imams will be forced to perform such ceremonies or face state penalties.

Lifesite – Justice Scalia repeatedly suggested that once a constitutional right to marry by same-sex couples was enshrined by the court, a member of the clergy could not be given civil marriage powers by the state unless he agreed to perform […] → Keep reading

Where Are the ‘No Gays Allowed’ Signs?

The huge brouhaha in Indiana over the last few days has all been a manufactured event designed to paint people with religious beliefs as extremists who want to segregate homosexuals from the general public. The left and the media have both taken a page directly from the Alinsky playbook and have launched attack after attack on Indiana, their legislature and governor and anyone who supports religious freedom legislation. In short, the legislation protects a citizen or business owner’s right to decide with whom to do business and to choose not to if doing so would violate their religious beliefs.

Naturally, the media and the left have pounced upon this legislation as being the next best thing to rounding up homosexuals and putting them in a ghetto, but the truth of it is that the legislation mentions homosexuals exactly zero times. The NCAA, Angie’s List, Salesforce.com and other entities have all announced either displeasure with the new law or that they […] → Keep reading

Sharia Law Comes To the United States

People said it would never happen. There is no need to make an effort to ban Sharia law because it will never be in the United States. That’s what they said. Legislative efforts to ban Sharia law were always protested by groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other groups sympathetic to Muslims. Oklahoma is one of at least sixteen states that have introduced legislation to ban Sharia law. Two years ago, Oklahoma passed House Bill 1060 which prohibits the application of foreign laws when doing so would violate the Oklahoma or U.S. Constitution. The bill did not mention Sharia law or any foreign law specifically, yet CAIR decried its passage, saying that the bill attacks the religious principles of Islam. Opponents of this bill and similar bills in other states said Sharia law would never come here and that there is no reason to pass such legislation.

Those people were wrong.

Religious Liberty Under Assault in Oregon

Well over a year ago I wrote a post about Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of Sweet Cakes By Melissa in Oregon, who decided to close their shop after continual harassment from homosexuals and their supporters. If you’re not familiar with their story, the Kleins declined to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple, citing their Christian beliefs that marriage should be between a man and a woman. In addition to the harassment the Kleins received, their vendors were also harassed into no longer doing business with the Kleins, resulting in a great loss of sales. Their attorney referred to it as “economic terrorism.” The Kleins closed their shop but said they would continue to take orders and operate from their home.

The lesbians who had their feelings hurt filed a discrimination complaint against the Kleins. Last week an administrative law judge with Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries ruled that the Kleins were in violation of the […] → Keep reading
