If Operation Fast and Furious (OFF) has taught us anything, it’s that the progressives in this country (especially Barack Hussein Obama II, Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder) will go to great lengths to invent “facts” to use to continue to chip away at our Second Amendment rights. Many have credibly argued that OFF was designed not to stop guns from flowing across the border to Mexican drug cartels, but rather to inflate the numbers and “prove” by lying statistics that over 90% of the guns recovered in Mexico were trafficked illegally from the United States. The goal was to gin up an astroturfed groundswell of bogus public opinion in favor of more government control over guns.
The claim that 90% of guns recovered in Mexico came from the US was a lie of omission, or clever parsing. Left out was the fact that not all the guns were traced–only those guns submitted by Mexico for tracing, which was a tiny subset of the total number of guns confiscated by Mexican authorities.
Now comes news that the progressives have opened a second front in this war on our Second Amendment rights. George Soros and the United Nations, with support from Obama and Hillary Clinton, are pushing a new international treaty designed to enact gun control within the United States, despite the clear will of the people [emphasis added]:
Under the guise of a proposed global “Small Arms Treaty” premised to fight “terrorism”, “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates” you can be quite certain that an even more insidious threat is being targeted – our Constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms.
What, exactly, does the intended agreement entail?
While the terms have yet to be made public, if passed by the U.N. and ratified by our Senate, it will almost certainly force the U.S. to:
- Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.
- Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course).
- Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons (any that have magazines even though they still operate in the same one trigger pull – one single “bang” manner as revolvers, a simple fact the ant-gun media never seem to grasp).
- Create an international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.
- In short, overriding our national sovereignty, and in the process, providing license for the federal government to assert preemptive powers over state regulatory powers guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment in addition to our Second Amendment rights.
Where does George Soros come in? The billionaire progressive globalist is funding this effort [emphasis added]:
to give the United Nations control of your guns.Through his Media Matters organization, Soros is dumping pro-UN gun control propaganda into the mainstream media to coincide with the United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty being held in New York July 2–27. …
The current draft of the ATT mandates that the governments of member states petition the United Nations for approval of any contract to sell weapons to any nation where there exists a “substantial risk of a serious violation” of human rights. … That is a direct assault on American legislative sovereignty, and an indirect attack on the sovereignty of the American people who elect the members of Congress who vote on such measures.
In the text of the ATT, the United Nations specifically calls for the passage of a legally binding instrument that will impose international standards for the ownership, trade, and transfer of weapons.
In another section the ATT includes “controls on a comprehensive list of weaponry, including small arms and light weapons.” Predictably, all these controls are couched comfortably in talk of “human rights” and ending senseless killings by rogue regimes.”
While you will soon be hearing a great deal in the media about the wealthy Koch brothers, who support Mitt Romney and (no doubt) the preservation of our sovereignty and our Constitutional rights, you will be hearing very little about the activities of the subversive Mr. Soros, who funds the New World Order (NWO), including politicians, such as Barack Hussein Obama II and Hillary Clinton, as well as projects like Agenda 21. Make no mistake: Soros wants the end of free-market capitalism, as does Obama.
This is not Soros’s first attempt to directly subvert our rights. He designed his Secretary of State Project, which seeks lockstep Democrat control over Secretary of State offices in all fifty states. All the better to control our elections [emphasis added].
History’s most notorious Georgian-turned-Russian, the politically astute Joseph Stalin once remarked, “The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”
Secretaries of State oversee elections. They decide which rules apply. They decide which votes count and which don’t count. They decide which laws to enforce and which laws to ignore, much the same as the federal government under Obama has decided not to enforce Voting Rights laws when the victim is white and not to enforce immigration laws. Illegal aliens are allowed to stay, and now the progressives want to ensure that they can continue to vote illegally in our elections.
Over the weekend (coincidentally?), the AP published a story that alleges that the risks of voter ID laws far outweigh the benefits of catching illegal voters. The writer contends that the greater danger lies in having legitimate votes tossed. As usual, the story is slanted, uses lying statistics and anecdotal evidence, and downplays the fact that no vote that’s legitimate will be tossed, so long as the voter complies with the law. The writer also chooses weasel words like “suggest” and “could” and “appears” and “believes”. As one pro-voter-ID lawyer pointed out
“Most of it [vote fraud] goes unreported and unprosecuted.”
If voter ID laws prevent people from attempting to vote illegally, then the illegal voters won’t be counted in these statistics. If voter ID laws don’t exist or are not enforced, then illegal voters won’t be counted in these statistics, either, because they will be counted as legal voters (since they weren’t caught in the act).
Therefore, it’s wrong-headed and deliberate obfuscation to compare an undercount of actual or potential illegal votes to the number of ballots tossed that were cast by voters who might have been legitimate but who didn’t bother to go back to the election board to prove their eligibility.
You can’t compare the number of tossed ballots with an UNKNOWN AND UNKNOWABLE number of illegal voters who didn’t try to vote illegally (because of the new law) or who were not reported, identified, or prosecuted when they did vote illegally.
By the way, there’s an inconvenient statistic that the progressives would not want to see: If voter ID laws are in force, then it ought to be a simple matter to compare voter rolls to see who no longer votes but who used to vote. Then check their eligibility to vote in order to arrive at the number of illegal votes that were cast and counted, but should not have been counted. We the People have a right to know how many of our elections have been stolen over the past decades, especially by illegal aliens in key states like California and Florida (where the 2000 presidential election was decided by just over 500 votes).
Is this disingenuous AP story evidence of yet another Soros initiative? Is Soros also planting anti-voter-ID stories in the complicit media to help promote yet another line item from the Soros/Obama NWO (communist, totalitarian) agenda?
Of what use is it to Obama to allow illegal aliens to stay if state voter ID laws prevent them from voting? That’s the real reason Democrats oppose voter ID laws.
Everything progressives do has a subtext, an agenda, a hidden motivation. We the People must remain ever vigilant. We must do all we can to get the word out to as many of our fellow citizens as possible. We cannot allow these initiatives to go unchallenged.
