Democrats Are Just Wrong on Sit-In, Secret Lists

Democrats Are
Just Wrong on Sit-In, Secret Lists

Congress should not expand secret
watch lists that deny Americans their constitutional

Democrats’ latest moves on gun control measures last night
focused on two initiatives they want to bring to the floor:
more onerous background checks on gun purchases and a new law
that would bar anyone on the FBI’s secret terror watch list
from being able to buy a gun.

Expanding background
checks on new gun purchases is an issue worth debating, but
even the most in-depth probe would never have stopped an
individual like Omar Mateen from purchasing weapons to shoot
up an Orlando, Fla. nightclub. While it has been reported that
Mateen was a mentally deranged, wife-beating, heavy-drinking,
gay, radical Muslim, he was also a licensed armed guard, had a
degree in criminal justice, and had passed multiple background
checks and a psychological evaluation with G4S, the
international security firm he had worked at for nine

more troubling issue here, however, is the continuing slow
creep of secret government lists like the FBI’s Terrorist
Screening Database, also known as the terror watch

This is
at the heart of the Democrats’ grandstanding on Capitol Hill.
Democrats like Rep. John Lewis (Ga.) want all potential gun
buyers to be checked against the FBI’s watch list of suspected
terrorists in order to prevent terrorists from being able to
buy guns.

problem with this, of course, is that the FBI’s list is
notorious for including people who have nothing to do with
international terrorism while neglecting to include
individuals who really have traveled abroad to learn how to
carry out terror attacks in the U.S.

are right to oppose this measure to deny Americans their
constitutional right to bear arms. The larger issue, however,
is that if the government can arbitrarily take away your right
to own a firearm because it has placed you on a secret list,
it could likewise restrict other rights any time officials
wish to do so -- for any reason. You could be added to a list
for simply protesting the government, for instance, and then
your right against unreasonable searches or even habeas corpus
could be suspended. And you would have no recourse to deal
with it, because your name is on a secret list that neither
you nor your attorney can access.

is why even extreme liberals who want all guns removed from
everyone should oppose the Democrats’ new

doesn’t matter whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump wins
the presidential election in November 2016, as neither is
likely to overturn the government’s authority to add our names
to secret lists that will determine who does—and, more
importantly, who does not—have rights as laid out in the
Constitution. Neither Republican nor Democratic Congress
members should be encouraging this kind of un-American
ultimate executive power.

we, as Americans, really want to hand either one of these
candidates the authority to determine whether or not the Bill
of Rights applies to us? The measure being currently debated
must be stopped before it’s implemented, and those who value
liberty should be working to overturn the existing executive
power-grabs put in place since 9-11.

Throughout history, there have always
been powerful people who work secretly behind the scenes to
advance their own objectives, often to the detriment of the
public as a whole. President Woodrow Wilson said in 1913,
“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views
confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the
United States, in the fields of commerce and manufacturing,
are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know
that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so
watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they
had better not speak above their breath when they speak in
condemnation of it.”

the World

Twenty years later, FDR said in a
private letter, “A financial element in the large centers has
owned the government of the United States since the days of
Andrew Jackson.”

Andrew Jackson himself said, “I weep
for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of
its successful experiment that corruption has been imputed to
many members of the House of Representatives, and the rights
of the people have been bartered for promises of

In the mid-1900s, President Dwight
Eisenhower added this, “In the councils of government, we must
guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence,
whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial
complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced
power exists and will persist.”

And shortly before his assassination,
President John F. Kennedy added this: “The very word ‘secrecy’
is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a
people inherently and historically opposed to secret
societies, to secret oaths and to secret

The situation is no different today. A
few thousand wealthy and influential people and societies who
operate mostly behind the scenes, and keep their objectives
secret from the public, largely control the world. This book
identifies them, exposes some of their past activities, and
sets forth ways of dealing with

A system of global control, referred to
as the “New World Order,” by President George H.W. Bush in
many of his speeches, is in effect today. Insiders are
promoting a one-world government, a one-world economy and a
one-world religion, with themselves in charge of

A growing number of people are becoming
aware of what is going on behind the scenes, and are becoming
increasingly resistant to a global socialistic dictatorship.
This book seeks to add to that awareness so that freedom can
be maintained without violence.
