Because its thanksgiving and everyone is off, we have not made contact
with HS. We have taken any reference to HS from our web site..When you first
emailed me I honestly did not recall horiuchi's name so you caught me unawares.
I also do not read the blogs so the fact there was an issue came as a surpise.In
any event, HS makes a great product and we are a large customer of theirs. Why
they would pick a super controversial spokesperson is beyond me. Doing this
violates pure business common sense. Early next week we will use whatever
persuasive powers at our disposal to get HS to do the right thing..Do me a favor
and tell those on the bolgs that Remington and I are now fully aware of the
issue, in full agreement with the outrage, and will do what we can't exert
pressure on HS to reverse course.

This is absolutely repulsive. This man illegally shot and murdered a woman holding her little child at Ruby Ridge and escaped murder charges on a technicality. He should have been tried, convicted, and senetenced to death years ago. Now this company which manufactures firearms and parts (take note that they make many stocks for Remington brand firearms as well) does the ultimate spit in the faces of those of us who value the Second Amendment and despise government tyranny: they proudly print a murderer's endorsement of their products, and from the murky details I've found so far, he may even be on their payroll in some fashion. Thus far HS Precision has ignored messages from people complaining. Remington, however, has sent out responses to people saying they'll refuse to buy firearms with HS Precision stocks:
Thanks for your note. Was Mr Horiuchi charged and convicted of a crime in
the event you reference?
Now that was a rather foolish response. Perhaps that individual is simply ignorant of the details, including why that murderer got away with what he did, and a better response will be forthcoming. But if not, there are plenty of choices out there in the gun world besides Remington...

"Who really cares about it being unconstitutional?" said Councilwoman TonyaOf course the ordinance will have no effect on criminals (why would they go out and turn themselves in for doing something illegal?). But this demonstrates the problem with these far-left anti-gun politicians: they don't care about the Constitution, they think they can do whatever they want.

RUSSIAN ANALYST PREDICTS DECLINE AND BREAKUP OF USATue Nov 25 2008 09:04:22
ETA leading Russian political analyst has said the economic turmoil in the
United States has confirmed his long-held view that the country is heading for
collapse, and will divide into separate parts. Professor Igor Panarin said in an
interview with the respected daily IZVESTIA published on Monday: "The dollar is
not secured by anything. The country's foreign debt has grown like an avalanche,
even though in the early 1980s there was no debt. By 1998, when I first made my
prediction, it had exceeded $2 trillion. Now it is more than 11 trillion. This
is a pyramid that can only collapse." The paper said Panarin's dire predictions
for the U.S. economy, initially made at an international conference in Australia
10 years ago at a time when the economy appeared strong, have been given more
credence by this year's events. When asked when the U.S. economy would collapse,
Panarin said: "It is already collapsing. Due to the financial crisis, three of
the largest and oldest five banks on Wall Street have already ceased to exist,
and two are barely surviving. Their losses are the biggest in history. Now what
we will see is a change in the regulatory system on a global financial scale:
America will no longer be the world's financial regulator." When asked who would
replace the U.S. in regulating world markets, he said: "Two countries could
assume this role: China, with its vast reserves, and Russia, which could play
the role of a regulator in Eurasia." Asked why he expected the U.S. to break up
into separate parts, he said: "A whole range of reasons. Firstly, the financial
problems in the U.S. will get worse. Millions of citizens there have lost their
savings. Prices and unemployment are on the rise. General Motors and Ford are on
the verge of collapse, and this means that whole cities will be left without
work. Governors are already insistently demanding money from the federal center.
Dissatisfaction is growing, and at the moment it is only being held back by the
elections and the hope that Obama can work miracles. But by spring, it will be
clear that there are no miracles." He also cited the "vulnerable political
setup", "lack of unified national laws", and "divisions among the elite, which
have become clear in these crisis conditions." He predicted that the U.S. will
break up into six parts - the Pacific coast, with its growing Chinese
population; the South, with its Hispanics; Texas, where independence movements
are on the rise; the Atlantic coast, with its distinct and separate mentality;
five of the poorer central states with their large Native American populations;
and the northern states, where the influence from Canada is strong. He even
suggested that "we could claim Alaska - it was only granted on lease, after
all." Panarin, 60, is a professor at the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian
Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and has authored several books on information
However, a warning to the Russians: Stay out of Alaska, you'll never be able to control it (think Afghanistan invasion), and I doubt the Canadians (with whom you have been playing games with in their Arctic territory) would take kindly to you invading either.

Well, the obomination's attorney general pick promises to be worse than Janet Butcher of Waco Reno:
Barack Obama’s nomination of Eric Holder for attorney general will not sit well
with advocates of Second Amendment rights — Holder has consistently championed
stronger gun-control measures.As deputy attorney general in the Bill Clinton
administration from 1997 to 2001, Holder “was a strong supporter of restrictive
gun control,” according to The Volokh Conspiracy, a Web site that focuses on the
legal system and the courts.He advocated federal licensing of handgun owners, a
three-day waiting period on handgun sales, rationing handgun sales to no more
than one per month, banning possession of handguns and so-called "assault
weapons" by anyone under age 21, a gun show restriction bill that would have
given the federal government the power to shut down all gun shows, and national
gun registration.“He also promoted the factoid that ‘Every day that goes by,
about 12, 13 more children in this country die from gun violence’ — a statistic
that is true only if one counts 18-year-old gangsters who shoot each other as
‘children,’” noted the Web site, founded by law professor Alexander Volokh.After
the 9/11 attacks, Holder wrote an opinion piece for The Washington Post arguing
that a new law should give "the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms a record
of every firearm sale." He also said prospective gun buyers should be checked
against the secret "watch lists" compiled by various government entities.Earlier
this year, Holder — who would become the first African-American attorney general
— co-signed an amicus brief in support of the District of Columbia’s ban on all
handguns and on the use of any firearm for self-defense in the home.Holder also
played a key role in the snatching of 6-year-old Cuban Elian Gonzalez from his
Miami relatives’ home in April 2000, according to the Web site. Gonzalez was to
be sent to Cuba where his father lived.Although a photo clearly showed a federal
agent pointing a gun at the man who was holding the terrified child, Holder
claimed that the federal agents sent to capture Gonzalez had acted "very
sensitively."David Kopel, author of the Volokh Conspiracy report, observed: “If
Mr. Holder believes that breaking down a door with a battering ram, pointing
guns at children (not just Elian), and yelling ‘Get down, get down, we'll shoot’
is an example of acting ‘very sensitively,’ his judgment about the responsible
use of firearms is not as acute as would be desirable for a cabinet officer who
would be in charge of thousands and thousands of armed federal agents, many of
them paramilitary agents with machine guns.”Holder has already come under fire
due to his involvement in the Mark Rich pardon in the final hours of the Clinton
presidency.Billionaire Rich renounced his U.S. citizenship and moved to
Switzerland to avoid prosecution for racketeering, wire fraud, tax fraud, tax
evasion, and illegal trades with Iran in violation of the U.S. embargo following
the 1979-80 hostage crisis.Seventeen years later, Rich wanted a pardon, and he
retained Jack Quinn, former counsel to the president, to lobby his old
boss.Holder had originally recommended Quinn to one of Rich's advisers,
political analyst Dick Morris reported. And he gave substantive advice to Quinn
along the way.Once the pardon was granted, Holder sent his congratulations to
Eric Holder also favors censorship of the internet: http://yro.slashdot.org/yro/08/11/21/2224235.shtml
He picked AZ Governor Janet Napolitano for the head of Homeland Security. http://www.foxnews.com/printer_friendly_story/0,3566,455045,00.html
For anyone who doesn't know, she is very far to the left, rabidly anti-gun, and not good in any way, shape or form for us.
Something else that can have potentially bad implications:
WASHINGTON — President-elect Barack Obama's 3 million campaign volunteers
got re-enlistment notices this week.
Campaign manager David Plouffe, in a
mass e-mail sent Wednesday to former workers, asked how much time they can spare
for four missions integral to Obama's effort to transform his victory into a
broader political movement.
The volunteers' options are, Plouffe wrote:
Campaign for progressive state and local candidates
local efforts to advance Obama's agenda
Train others in Obama's organizing
Focus on local political issues.
"Obama's building a
political machine," said Stephen Hess, a presidential scholar at the Brookings
Institution, a center-left Washington research group.
"These people have just
opened up a new world for politics," added Hess, the author of "What Do We Do
Now?: A Workbook for the President-Elect."
Pre-Internet presidents, he said,
lacked the ability to communicate in real time with masses of their volunteers.
In addition, the social networks such as MySpace and Facebook that link Obama's
army together didn't exist.
The net effect was that pre-Obama political
machines grew out of local politics and remained rooted there. Statewide or
presidential candidates relied largely on local leaders' support.
Obama, who, at least for now, has the allegiance of thousands of volunteers in
most if not all congressional districts.
"Your hard work built this
movement," Plouffe wrote them. "Now it's up to you to decide how we move
His four-page questionnaire also asks respondents to name their
top-priority issues out of 27 listed. The options included environment and
global warming, civil rights and voting rights, war in Iraq, jobs and trade, or
divisive politics and partisanship.
Plouffe also invited volunteers to
identify their proudest campaign accomplishment and, separately, to name a
fellow volunteer or field organizer who inspired them.
In the hallmark of a
campaign that ran on small donations, volunteers are once again invited to make
a financial contribution. This time it's to the Obama-Biden transition

Address Gun Violence in Cities: Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt
Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access
important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the
tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and
Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights
of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. They
support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country
childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban

Obama Advisor Malley's Role UncertainAfter the U.S. elections,
President-elect Obama appointed Robert Malley as a senior foreign policy
adviser. Malley, who served as an “informal adviser” to the Obama
campaign, was reportedly forced to sever his ties with the campaign six months
ago, when The Times of London reported that he was meeting with Hamas
representatives on a regular basis. During the campaign Obama claimed he
opposed contacts with the Hamas.
At the time, campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt
stated that "Rob Malley has, like hundreds of other experts, provided informal
advice to the campaign in the past. He has no formal role in the
campaign. He will not play any role in the future."

"Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and
high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year. Obama will
encourage retiring Americans to serve by improving programs available for
individuals over age 55, while at the same time promoting youth programs such as
Youth Build and Head Start."
To the following:
"Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by
setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50
hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college
students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and
fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college
education is completely free. Obama will encourage retiring Americans to serve
by improving programs available for individuals over age 55, while at the same
time promoting youth programs such as Youth Build and Head Start."

What this means can be anyone's guess. Of course given his record he can't be trusted with our firearms rights, but if perhaps he decides for political reasons to not push for those gun laws, that would be a good thing even if for the wrong reasons. We will have to wait and see what happens.

But we were warned about this, in 1985: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x32cxf_yuri-bezmenov
And the commies are targeting private retirement accounts: http://www.carolinajournal.com/articles/display_story.html?id=5081
Evidently the stock market wasn't too impressed with the obomination's victory: it dropped 929 points in the two days following his election. Obomination supporters predicted a 1,000 point jump after his election but it appears the opposite is true. Raising taxes during a bad economy is never a wise move, Carter and Hoover learned that lesson, and I'm sure those in the market know that unless overnight this idiot in a fancy suit gains some intelligence on this matter, the economy will be bleak during his dictatorship.
Russia and other enemies were happy we have this weak commie in office. Russia has deployed nuclear armed missiles around Poland and elsewhere, Iran's Ahmanutjob is happy as are communists in Cuba, Venezuela and North Korea. Our enemies are happy. Generally that means we should not be.
He is planning on assaulting our civil rights as soon as possible. http://change.gov/agenda/urbanpolicy/
"They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country
childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons
Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not
on our streets."
The commies are after our rights. They want to ban private sales between individuals, such as friends and relatives selling or trading guns to one another, and they wish to ban the most popular firearms. But they are NOT entitled to them, at all! Even the FBI said the original Assault Weapons Ban had no measurable effect on crime. http://articles.latimes.com/2005/jun/28/opinion/oe-lott28
In addition, his chief of staff favors mandatory service. He wrote the following in his 2006 book, and in light of Michelle Obomination's quote I posted in my last post here, this should frighten us all:
"It's time for a real Patriot Act that brings out the patriot in all of us. We
propose universal civilian service for every young American. Under this plan,
All Americans between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five will be asked to
serve their country by going through three months of basic training, civil
defense preparation and community service. ...Here's how it would work. Young
people will know that between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five, the nation
will enlist them for three months of civilian service. They'll be asked to
report for three months of basic civil defense training in their state or
community, where they will learn what to do in the event of biochemical, nuclear
or conventional attack; how to assist others in an evacuation; how to respond
when a levee breaks or we're hit by a natural disaster. These young people will
be available to address their communities' most pressing needs."
"They also warn, "[s]ome Republicans will squeal about individual freedom," ruling out any likelihood that they would let people opt out of universal citizen service."
Our country is in great danger because of this election. Our freedom is in peril. The answer is secession. Under Amendment 10 of the U.S. Constitution the power to secede, or leave the union, is reserved by the people, as it is not prohibited anywhere in the Constitution nor is it delegated to the federal government. We must have votes, county by county, state by state, to decide this question. Keep on top of our representatives, although they demonstrated with the bailout plan they don't care what we think, and tell those in your state government you want them to stand up for our freedom against federal tyranny. Support groups like the Alaskan Independence Party and other pro-freedom groups. Join the NRA and support the costly battles we face for our gun rights. Pray for the health and wellbeing of the 5 Supreme Court justices who upheld our rights in the Heller case, that we do not lose any on our side. Most of all, do not show any support or respect for this obominable president nor to the federal government. If you fly the federal flag, fly it upside down, a sign of danger, a distress signal for our Republic. Better yet, fly only the Gadsden Flag. The obomination deserves nothing but our utter contempt. Now let me make this very clear to my readers: do not resort to violence. No violence is justifiable, let us try peaceful means of protecting ourselves and our freedom. Let us try to secede peacefully. But we must be firm, we must not back down, we must not compromise our freedom away. November 4, 2008, was a dark day in this country's history. I need not remind people that we are nearing the 150th anniversary (2010) of South Carolina seceding in 1860. Thomas Jefferson once said no free nation goes 150 years without a rebellion. We have at the least been blessed with a weak and ineffective tyrant as best as I can tell. There need not be a civil war, though I fear we may be approaching one (just as before the Civil War from 1861-1865, people are arming themselves as quickly as possible, note that all major suppliers of ammunition and firearms are swamped with orders and are either sold out, severely backordered, or price gouging with common calibers such as 7.62X39, and to the latter I say we do not support those who price gouge us in our time of need, but let us show full support for those who work hard to supply us in these bad times)., but we must not accept a tyrannical government that does not represent us. God have mercy on us and on our country, the communists surely won't.
