Before I begin my discussion of the subject of inalienable rights let me say, “Thank You” for the many prayers you prayed for Bonnie before her homegoing and for me and the family since. Today marks two-months that she has been gone. She went to heaven at 12:15 AM on Sunday, April 11, 2021. I miss her more than words can say and in keeping with my calling from God, my love of freedom, and her expressed desire, I continue to stand as a Watchman on the Walls. THANK YOU!
I do not want to sound like a broken record or beat a dead horse, but the Democrats, Liberals, Leftists, Globalists, Socialists, Progressive now in control of our government are waging war on the Inalienable Rights of Americans. Let me rephrase that, they do not believe than any of us who oppose their agenda should have any rights. They desire and are pursuing total totalitarian authoritarian control and are willing to do whatever is required to achieve that objective.
The Executive Orders, the Legislation, and the intended actions they have announced and implemented will result in anyone who is not part of the Woke Crowd, Cancel Culture Left having NO RIGHTS! They do not care that those rights are protected by the American Constitution and God. If allowed, they will render the American Constitution meaningless. In many ways, that has already transpired, but at this juncture, the Constitution is still intact although ignored and bypassed frequently.
The assault on American history and the revisionism that has been transpiring has resulted in a state of dangerous historical ignorance in America. Few, and I know that may be offensive, but few Americans truly know American history. They know the sanitized and skewed versions or tidbits of history but have no ability to connect the dots and understand what we were given in the Revolutionary War and the subsequent establishment of American and the enacting of our Constitution.
Most Americans believe we are a majority-rule democracy. We are not! We are a Republic with a representative form of government. In that sense, we are a Representative Democracy. Our wise founders and the framers of the constitution carefully guarded against America becoming a direct democracy and sought to install an incredible system of checks and balances in the formulation of three branches of government. They staunchly defended ‘States Rights’ and the ‘Inalienable Rights’ of the citizens. They believed, rightly, that there are certain inherent rights of all people that come from God not government. They sought to guarantee that the government could not infringe upon those rights.
The Lexington Minutemen were the epitome of the American spirit and devotion to Liberty and Freedom. On April 19, 1775, a group of farmers, tradesmen, and other “Minutemen” led by Captain John Parker, gathered on Lexington Commons to express umbrage, at the British Crown’s illegal attempt to confiscate Colonial Weapons. Captain Parker told his comrades, “Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war let it begin here.” I believe that we are facing a similar seminal moment in America.
It is almost impossible to determine who fired the ‘first shot’ in that encounter but it became known as the “shot heard round the world” and the de facto beginning of the American Revolution. There were many causes of the war but one of the key elements was the desire, intent, and attempt of the British Crown to ‘confiscate firearms’. That is what the Democrats desire and intend to do through various means. They will use both the front and back door approach and attempt to strip us of our God-given right of self-defense. I predict that will result in another revolution. It may be short-lived, but it will transpire.
The current Vice President Kamala Harris, while serving as a Senator from California, acknowledged that she was willing to send the police to our homes to take our guns. We dare not be sanguine thinking she and they can never get away with infringing upon that 2nd Amendment Right. I believe as did many of our founders and subsequent historians that the 2nd Amendment is the inalienable right that secures all the other Rights.
The current Supreme Court seems to embrace an aberrant view regarding the 2nd Amendment. They seem to believe that it is not on the same level as all the other Amendments in the Bill of Rights. They are wrong! Texas Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee, who often speaks as if she is functionally illiterate is a strong advocate of infringing upon our 2nd Amendment Rights. She is joined by the would-be Governor and filed Senatorial and Presidential Candidate, Robert Francis O’Rourke. His infamous declaration, “Hell yes we will take your AR-15s” should be remembered by all Texans. He is a liberal leftist of the Socialist Communist ideological ilk and were he to become governor of Texas my beloved state will be neck-deep in the stuff that horses leave behind after eating.
The Houston Congresswoman has proposed some far-reaching and dangerous legislation to ‘grab our guns’ that has been put forth to date. If you are not aware you should make yourself aware of H.R.127 – Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act.
§ 932. Licensing of firearm and ammunition possession; registration of firearms
“(a) In General.—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.
Here is an excerpt from it:
“(b) Firearm Registration System.—
“(1) REQUIRED INFORMATION.—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.
The Democrats control the White House, the Senate, the House of Representatives, and thereby the courts, so what can we do before the mid-term elections? The States MUST use all measures to hold the line on the 2nd Amendment. Sadly, some State Governors and Officials have gone full-on dictatorial and are in lockstep with the Left and want to strip us of our right, to ‘keep and bear arms.’
I am encouraged when a liberal state such as New Mexico where 30 of 33 county sheriffs signed a letter pledging to refuse to enforce several gun-control measures supported by the Democrats in Santa Fe. There are also more than two dozen counties in that state who have enacted “sanctuary” resolutions backing the sheriffs and affirming that no tax dollars in their jurisdictions should go to enforcing those proposals. Is that enough? No, but it is a start.
I am concerned that the ATF and FBI will soon be thrown into the mix and the clash between locally elected sheriffs and federal law enforcement will result in citizens being drawn into the clash. We will witness such disasters such as the Waco, Branch Davidians debacle. I am not defending David Koresh or any other groups such as that, but I am saying that the attempt to strip the law-abiding of their inalienable right of self-defense places the law-abiding at a disadvantage against criminals and a nefarious governmental overreach.
America, our Inalienable Rights, if you are a non-follower of the toxic liberal ideology, are in their crosshairs. If the 2nd Amendment falls, all the other rights will follow. This is a war for the Republic. You can discount my argument and call me a kook or a mindless conspiracist but one day you may see that I am spot on in my warnings.
God bless you and God bless America!
