National Public Radio reported this morning (2/4/13) some items of interest when it interviewed Cokie Roberts.
First, she claimed that President Obama currently enjoys a 60% approval rating. This would mean that 6 of every 10 people you know think he’s doing a good job. If that is accurate, and not merely the result of timid white folks not wanting to sound racist when the pollster calls them on the phone, then we are truly sunk as a nation. Everybody loves Dear Leader, apparently, if his slavish media goons are to be taken seriously.
Roberts says there are a few agenda items on which the President seems willing to spend his popularity capital. She mentioned specifically gay marriage, women in combat, closing tax loopholes (Washington-speak for raising taxes,) and gun control.
When the NPR stooge asked her what the chances are that some form of new gun control legislation will pass the Congress this year, Roberts produced a few nuggets for freedom-minded citizens to consider closely.
For one, apparently NYC mayor Bloomberg is plunking down a lot of his own cash to fund a new PAC which will focus on putting up far-left primary challengers to defeat Democrats who refuse to toe the line. She called it, basically, taking a page from the Tea Party playbook, in which conservatives have had some success at ousting RINOs here and there. Conservatives in the GOP do this, and it’s called holding a gun to the party’s head and moving it in the direction of extremism. Rich, white liberals do it and it’s merely an innovative way of getting your ideas across.
But the payoff to the Cokie Roberts segment was her prognostication that some form of universal background check will likely be signed into Federal law shortly. I’m resisting the urge here to go off on a tangent about how no recent mass shootings would have been prevented at all with this sort of legislation, and the nauseating hypocrisy involved with the Fast and Furious crew pushing it.
Instead, let me simply beg you, my fellow citizens: If and when this kind of thing is implemented, DO NOT COMPLY. I mean, keep selling and trading guns and ammo with your friends and neighbors and do it off the grid. In fact, if you have to buy these things on the black market, I urge you to feel no pangs of conscience in doing so.
The government will use all gun sale background check requests as a de facto form of gun registration. Do not kid yourself. And then they will eventually use that list when it comes time to go door-to-door in confiscation efforts. The line must be drawn here. Resist now.
The American colonists did not wait to secede until actual chains were placed upon them: they could read the times and see the direction things were headed. If you don’t want to be disarmed (which is simply another word for “enslaved”) then we must stand together and absolutely refuse to give another single inch of ground.
I have done my version of “thundering” this sort of thing from the pulpit of my home church. If your own pastor hasn’t, I’d urge you to ask him why not. And when he gives you his lame, poofter excuses, smile cordially, shake his hand, leave the building, leave him to the hands of God, and immediately find a church where the pastor stands in the noble line of “Black Robe Regiment” preachers.
The ministers of the Revolution were, like their Puritan predecessors, bold and fearless in the cause of their country. No class of men contributed more to carry forward the revolution and to achieve our independence than did the ministers…By their prayers, patriotic sermons, and services they rendered the highest assistance to the civil government, the army, and the country. – B.F. Morris, historian, 1864
If your pastor is already up-to-speed on these things, urge him to go here and place your church on this list of “2nd Amendment Preachers.” In coming days, more and more folks will be looking for these, mark my words.
As you, Christian citizen, decide that the time has come to take a stand, you may well be shocked and disappointed to find that a lot of the opposition you face will come from within the church, from those claiming to be your brethren. People have been pastored for a long time by the aforementioned poofter ministers, Obama’s unwitting Fifth Column. They’ve absorbed their teachings and will parrot them at you.
Make sure your stand for liberty is taken, first and foremost, on the solid ground of Scripture. Check out the book, Resistance to Tyrants: Romans 13 and the Christian Duty to Oppose Wicked Rulers. (Paperback / Kindle version.) Now is not the time to falter, or to move forward with timid uncertainty.
