More on the War Against Freedom

Obama's National Service Bill appears to have passed. In it are such "gems" as the following, stripping people of their civil rights:

U.S.C. 12575) is amended to read as follows: `SEC. 125. PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES
AND INELIGIBLE ORGANIZATIONS.(a) Prohibited Activities- A participant in an
approved national service position under this subtitle may not engage in the
following activities:...(2) Organizing or engaging in protests, petitions,
boycotts, or strikes.(5) Engaging in partisan political activities, or other
activities designed to influence the outcome of an election to any public
office.(7) Engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services,
providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious
instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to
religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently
devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of
religious proselytization.(10) Such other activities as the Corporation may

As written it appears to be voluntary but there is a section that states:

Section 6104, subsection B

(3) Whether there is an appropriate role for Federal, State, and local
governments in overcoming the issues that deter volunteerism and national
service and, if appropriate, how to expand the relationships and partnerships
between different levels of government in promoting volunteerism and national
(4) Whether existing databases are effective in matching community
needs to would-be volunteers and service providers.
(5) The effect on the
Nation, on those who serve, and on the families of those who serve, if all
individuals in the United States were expected to perform national service or
were required to perform a certain amount of national service.
(6) Whether a
workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young
people could be developed, and how such a requirement could be implemented in a
manner that would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic
challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and
educational backgrounds.
(7) The need for a public service academy, a 4-year
institution that offers a federally funded undergraduate education with a focus
on training future public sector leaders.
(8) The means to develop awareness
of national service and volunteer opportunities at a young age by creating,
expanding, and promoting service options for elementary and secondary school
students, through service learning or other means, and by raising awareness of
existing incentives.
(9) The effectiveness of establishing a training
program on college campuses to recruit and educate college students for national

Section 120 of the bill discusses the “Youth Engagement Zone Program” and states that “service learning” will be “a mandatory part of the curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency.”

(2) YOUTH ENGAGEMENT ZONE- The term `youth engagement zone' means the area in
which a youth engagement zone program is carried out.
ZONE PROGRAM- The term `youth engagement zone program' means a service learning
program in which members of an eligible partnership described in paragraph (4)
collaborate to provide coordinated school-based or community-based service
learning opportunities, to address a specific community challenge, for an
increasing percentage of out-of-school youth and secondary school students
served by local educational agencies where--
`(A) not less than 90 percent
of the students participate in service-learning activities as part of the
program; or
`(B) service-learning is a mandatory part of the curriculum in
all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency.

Some other things:

Rahm Emanuel in a speech said the following: “If you're on that no-fly list, your access to the right to bear arms is canceled, because you're not part of the American family. You don't deserve that right."

So he wants to strip people of their rights by simply placing them on a secret list, no trial or conviction of a felony. You can be blacklisted and lose all your rights if he gets his wish.

Obama is having volunteers sent out to get people to pledge to support Obama and his policies. Take note of the following from one of the organizers:

"We're looking for supporters," said DeHaven of Hoover, one of the event's organizers. "We're not looking for a fight. That will come later, when we have an army."

And note the following video that shows some of these people:

It seems a lot like the start of the brown shirts of Obama (looking for a fight? While running Obama said to supporters to get in the faces of opponents). I'm sure everyone remembers for Obama calling for a national police force, as well trained and funded as the military, under his own control. Well, this doesn't sit right to me in a free Republic.

Also, that report from MIAC on militias has supposedly been retracted due to massive outcry:

There are efforts underway by pro-liberty individuals and groups, such as Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty, to obtain through a state equivalent of the Freedom of Information Act to obtain the sources and other information on this report. I am almost willing to wager that the report's authors used the SPLC or ADL's radical left-wing propaganda for sources.

A left-leaning federal judge granted the Brady Campaign's request for an injunction blocking the rule allowing visitors to carry guns in National Parks:

This is absurd. it was nowehere near a "last minute" rule as it was in the works for months and lobbying efforts went on for years. National Forests allow people to carry firearms in accordance with state laws. Carrying a handgun concealed has no effect on the environment (target shooting and shooting wildlife is still prohibited in National Parks). A judge single-handedly took away a right protected by the Second Amendment. It will be appealed and I do believe the anti-freedom gun grabbers will lose but in the meantime it creates a mess both for the Park Service and citizens visiting parks, and puts more lives in danger by disarming people.

Hillarly Clinton and Eric Holder are trying to argue that the drug cartels in Mexico are getting their weapons from U.S. gun stores and guns hows and that we must ban "assault weapons." Well, I truly would like to know which gun stores and gun shows are selling fully automatic firearms, grenades, anti-tank weapons and so forth over the counter, as these are the weapons being used down there not semi-automatic AR's and such. I haven't even found many Class 3 dealers who will carry grenades and certain other "destructive devices" which are strictly regulated by the National Firearms Act ($200 transfer or making tax, paperwork needing approval, background check). To think these people would buy overpriced semi-autos in the U.S. when full-autos are available cheap illegally South of the border, well, that's a poor excuse. I hope enough people see through the lies and propaganda coming from this administration.
