Obama Supported Legislation That Would Have Allowed State Police to Raid Homes and Confiscate Legally Obtained Firearms!


Theres a letter being circulated by the Illinois State Rifle Association that exposes Obama as a gun grabbing fascist whose policies sound more luike an Alex Jones fever dream than what an American would support:

Fellow Sportsman,

Hello, my name is Rich Pearson and I have been active in the firearm rights movement for over 40 years. For the past 15 years, I have served in the Illinois state capitol as the chief lobbyist for the Illinois State Rifle Association.

I lobbied Barack Obama extensively while he was an Illinois State Senator. As a result of that experience, I know Obama’s attitudes toward guns and gun owners better than anyone. The truth be told, in all my years in the Capitol I have never met a legislator who harbors more contempt for the law-abiding firearm owner than does Barack Obama.

Although Obama claims to be an advocate for the 2nd Amendment, his voting record in the Illinois Senate paints a very different picture. While a state senator, Obama voted for a bill that would ban nearly every hunting rifle, shotgun and target rifle owned by Illinois citizens. That same bill would authorize the state police to raid homes of gun owners to forcibly confiscate banned guns. Obama supported a bill that would shut down law-abiding firearm manufacturers including Springfield Armory, Armalite, Rock River Arms and Les Baer. Obama also voted for a bill that would prohibit law-abiding citizens from purchasing more than one gun per month.

Without a doubt, Barack Obama has proven himself to be an enemy of the law abiding firearm owner. At the same time, Obama has proven himself to be a friend to the hardened criminal. While a state senator, Obama voted 4 times against legislation that would allow a homeowner to use a firearm in defense of home and family.

Does Barack Obama still sound to you like a “friend” of the law-abiding gun owner?

And speaking of friends, you can always tell a person by the company they keep. Obama counts among his friends the Rev. Michael Pfleger – a renegade Chicago priest who has openly called for the murder of gun shop owners and pro-gun legislators. Then there is his buddy Richard Daley, the mayor of Chicago who has declared that if it were up to him, nobody would be allowed to own a gun. And let’s not forget Obama’s pal George Soros – the guy who has pumped millions of dollars into the UN’s international effort to disarm law-abiding citizens.

Obama has shown that he is more than willing to use other people’s money to fund his campaign to take your guns away from you. While a board member of the leftist Joyce Foundation, Barack Obama wrote checks for tens of millions of dollars to extremist gun control organizations such as the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence and the Violence Policy Center.

Does Barack Obama still sound to you like a “friend” of the law-abiding gun owner?

By now, I’m sure that many of you have received mailings from an organization called “American Hunters and Shooters Association(AHSA)” talking about what a swell fellow Obama is and how he honors the 2nd Amendment and how you will never have to worry about Obama coming to take your guns. Let me make it perfectly clear – everything the AHSA says about Obama is pure hogwash. The AHSA is headed by a group of left-wing elitists who subscribe to the British view of hunting and shooting. That is, a state of affairs where hunting and shooting are reserved for the wealthy upper-crust who can afford guided hunts on exclusive private reserves. The AHSA is not your friend, never will be.

In closing, I’d like to remind you that I’m a guy who has actually gone nose to nose with Obama on gun rights issues. The Obama I know cannot even begin to identify with this nation’s outdoor traditions. The Obama I know sees you, the law abiding gun owner, as nothing but a low-class lummox who is easily swayed by the flash of a smile and a ration of rosy rhetoric. The Obama I know is a stony-faced liar who has honed his skill at getting what he wants – so long as people are willing to give it to him.

That’s the Barack Obama I know.

Hmmm. Weren’t there were other charismatic leaders with their own civilian national security force who banned guns? How did that work out?

Thanks for Making Us Look Good Harlem

As if Pam Spaulding and Francis Holland (read his comments) weren’t cringe worthy enough in their slavish obedience to the pet causes White liberals, including getting the Bi-racial son of a Kenyan Communist who was raised by a White family in a Muslim country elected the first “Black” president, Black folk in Harlem have given every American with ties to the Black community a new reason to shake our heads ruefully and dream of what could have been:


Oy. Almost all these people are fairly conservative if you take them at their word, so at best they’ve been bamboozled by White liberals who are taking advantage of them, but that can be only half the equation.

As I was saying in conversation just recently the Black community allows White Liberals (and Marxists) to dictate to them what to think through their well paid surrogates like Communist shill Jesse Jackson and race baiting riot monger Al Sharpton.

Roy Innis and CORE has always had a much more positive role in both Black empowerment and racial equality and certainly a more positive message that worked to lift Blacks from poverty while Jackson and Sharpton (and Spaulding and Holland) continue to work to keep Blacks dependent on the non-existent largess of White Liberalism which has at it’s core the White Supremacist philosophy of Marxism.

More than 30 years of cultural and intellectual Liberalism, pumped into the Black community by the venomous fangs of White Marxist teachers, “community organizers”and their Judas lackies has decimated Africa-Americans. And now these same people look away as the new favored minorities, Latinos and Muslims, exterminate Blacks in racist pogroms and vicious hate crimes that people like Spaulding and Holland never report on. Holland has told me directly that he will never report on Latino hate crimes against Blacks because it “won’t get Obama elected.”

Meanwhile Black folk don’t even know what the Democrat platform is. Instead too many Blacks, including many in my own family, simply vote the way some White guy told Al Sharpton to tell them to vote. What happened to self-determination? What happened to pride?

They were beaten out of Black folks on the new plantations of the north: the White run educational system.

Free yourselves! If you want to vote Obama I understand that but at least know what his policies are. There are people alive today who risked their lives for you to be able to fully participate in the system without being beholden to White interest so the least you can do is take five goddamn minutes out of your day to learn what candidate supports the majority of your views.

Communism Fails Again

The Bolivarian Revolution not only led to food shortages in Venezuela but is costing the country billions of dollars a year as Chavez’s thugocracy drives the newly nationalized oil industry into the ground. From the Telegraph:

Venezuela’s daily oil production has fallen by a quarter since President Hugo Chavez won power, depriving his “Bolivarian Revolution” of much of the benefit of the global boom in oil prices.

To win allies and forge an anti-American front, Mr Chavez sells oil to friendly countries at low prices. Ironically, the only big customer buying Venezuelan oil at the full market price is the United States, which the president routinely denounces as the “Empire”.

“As production falls, the sales to the US become more important,” said Pietro Donatello, an oil analyst from Latin Petroleum in the capital, Caracas. “Only the US is paying the full amount for Venezuelan oil and in cash, the rest are in some kind of barter agreements.”

The state oil company, PDVSA, produced 3.2 million barrels per day in 1998, the year before Mr Chavez won the presidency. After a decade of rising corruption and inefficiency, daily output has now fallen to 2.4 million barrels, according to OPEC figures. About half of this oil is now delivered at a discount to Mr Chavez’s friends around Latin America. The 18 nations in his “Petrocaribe” club, founded in 2005, pay Venezuela only 30 per cent of the market price within 90 days, with rest in instalments spread over 25 years.

The other half – 1.2 million barrels per day – goes to America, Venezuela’s only genuinely paying customer.

Meanwhile, Mr Chavez has given PDVSA countless new tasks. “The new PDVSA is central to the social battle for the advance of our country,” said Rafael Ramirez, the company’s president and the minister for petroleum. “We have worked to convert PDVSA into a key element for the social battle.”

The company now grows food after Mr Chavez’s price controls emptied supermarket shelves of products like milk and eggs. Another branch produces furniture and domestic appliances in an effort to stem the flow of imports. What PDVSA seems unable to do is produce more oil.

Makes you feel good about the recent nationalization of the banks doesn’t it? Remember this story next time someone tells you Obama’s America will be better for you.

Oddly, this is a story American news outlets are ignoring. I wonder why?
