In the most recent article on Obama and Agenda 21, one must realize that a big part of Agenda 21 is gun control. After all, how are you going to be able to herd people into UN created ghettos unless you have their guns? Some of them just might not want to surrender their private property, homes, cars and other things and might be disposed to resist. But that would prove difficult for them if they are disarmed. Hence, government wants your guns so you are unable to resist their tyranny.
The Second Amendment was never about hunting rights or target shooting rights–it was always all about being able to protect yourself and your family against a tyrannical government. That’s the sum total of the reason for it.
All those nice-sounding folks that try to tell you that gun control is all about protecting the public from crime are throwing tons of bovine fertilizer in your face and hoping you think its chocolate pudding. Gun control has never been about protecting the public from crime and it has always been about finding ways to control the public so they won’t resist government tyranny.
On July 26th Erich Pratt, Director of Communications for Gun Owners of America, an organization I recommend, wrote: “Last week’s shooting in Colorado shows us, once again, the failure of gun control. The Century 16 theaters in Aurora were ‘gun free’ zones, where citizens are prohibited from carrying weapons for self defense…If this sad scenario sounds familiar, it should–as almost every large-scale massacre in this country has occurred in an area where guns are outlawed: Columbine High School, Virginia Tech, Fort Hood, etc. In all of these shootings, the victims were disarmed by law or regulation–yes even the one at Fort Hood. They were made mandatory victims by restrictions which never stop the bad guys from getting or using guns.” He’s right. But the restrictions were never meant to stop the bad guys from getting guns–Fast and Furious proved that. Our own government was in the process of making sure the bad guys got guns–and it was all part of a plan to make it look like the guns of ordinary citizens were ending up in Mexico so that the feds could then impose more gun control on honest citizens in the name of “peace and safety.”
You have to remember, with the Marxist clique that presently controls the government no one is considered safe and secure unless he is completely under the control of the “dictatorship of the proletariat” (government). We have to begin to understand the Marxist mindset of those the electorate put into office because they do not think like ordinary people and their “truth” is not our truth. Those dedicated to Marxist principles will never see things our way. There is no use talking to them. Marxist “truth” is all they will ever understand and anyone that dares oppose that “truth” is at war with them. This is why they wage war on the Christian Church, at least those parts of it they cannot subvert. Jesus
Christ, for them, is only a competing God and the Marxist “god”–the state, will brook no competition or opposition.
Gun owners in this country who wish to keep their firearms are considered to be at war with the current Marxist regime that wants to “protect” us all by suppressing us all. So hang onto your guns and don’t for a minute think gun control is about anything except people control.

Recently someone handed me a copy of The Ashley News Observer, published in Crosset, Arkansas. It was the issue for August 8th and it contained some interesting editorial articles.
One in particular was written by Dr.Mark Hendrickson, an adjunct faculty member, economist, and fellow for economic and social policy with the Center for Vision and Values at Grove City College in Pennsylvania.
Dr. Hendrickson, in his article, reviewed a book written by Brian Sussman called Eco-Tyranny. Hendrickson has observed” “With the defeat of Cap and Trade legislation in 2010 and the increasingly discredited alarmist theory of anthropogenic global warming, the greens may have lowered their public profile, however, with the full cooperation of the Obama administration, they are forging ahead with their illiberal agenda for gaining ever more control over the American economy and people.” That sounds about right. In the Marxist mindset no American can be truly “safe and protected” unless he is hedged about with endless government restrictions on his liberty. That’s the Marxist concept of “peace and safety.”
Dr. Hendrickson noted that: “On October 5, 2009, President Obama signed an executive order titled ‘Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance.’ Although that title hints at the immense scope of the order, it understates the frightening extent to which it expands the power of the federal government and constricts the rights and liberty of private citizens.”
It seems that Mr. Sussman, in writing Eco-Tyranny, had an inside contact in the Interior Department who told him that the long-term goal of Obama’s “Green Team” is to “divide the country into sectors where all humans would be herded into urban hubs while most of the land would be ‘returned to a natural state upon which humans would only be allowed to tread lightly.’ The full text of the 14-page executive order is reproduced in the appendix of Eco-Tyranny.”
Sussman’s book would probably be worth getting for that information alone. While many have been subtly programmed to think the environmental movement only started with Earth Day in 1970 (which just happened by the sheerest of coincidences to fall on the 100th anniversary of Lenin’s birth), Sussman shows in his book that the environmentalist movement was active in the 1800s, all the way up to the present, and he gives a summary of the key dates, also in his appendix. I have not gotten this book yet, but if I can find it and afford it, I will definitely pick up a copy. Given some of the utter hogwash the establishment tries to feed us about the environment we need all the straight information and answers we can get
Dr. Hendrickson states: “Remarkably, Sussman shows readers that such destructive figures as Marx, Lenin, and Hitler were intellectual and political forerunners of the modern illiberal green movement. Readers will be interested to learn of the four left-wingers who influenced and shaped the thinking of Rachel Carson, whose 1962 book Silent Spring marked the birth of the modern environmentalist movement.” From this one quote alone, you can see why the environmentalists so wanted to celebrate Lenin’s birth and every year we are treated to this memorial to one of the greatest butchers the world has ever known.
Sussman’s book shows how the American left has labored to fulfill the United Nations’ plot to “hamstring American prosperity” while using billions of our own tax dollars to help cut our own economic throats.
Sussman’s book notes the environmentalist attacks against nuclear energy and fossil fuels, “with another chapter devoted to the wasteful, uneconomical boondoggles of wind and solar energy…It is with no little irony that Sussman retells the story of President Obama denouncing oil as an undesirable source of energy from the headquarters of the now-bankrupt solar energy firm, Solyndra.” Sussman also notes an environmentalist campaign lasting for decades that would limit Americans’ access to water. You’re not supposed to know any of this and a dutiful lap dog media makes sure you never hear about it.
Hendrickson says flat out that “The radical greens are committed to reforming life in America to make it less free and less prosperous.” And in that, they have a willing accomplice in Comrade Obama. That’s what he has been all about since day one—the reduction of this country to third world status.
You might observe that the part of Obama’s executive order herding humans into crowded hubs and taking them off the land is right out of Agenda 21’s “Rewilding Project.” Rural private property, homes, farms, etc. will be lost so that the animals will have travel corridors between government wildlife refuges.
Folks, you had better wake up and begin to realize all this is going on. If you live on a farm, or in a small town, and own your own car, all of those things may be sacrificed in the name of “economic sustainability” which goes right along with the confiscation of private property according to the Communist Manifesto.
At this point I can already hear many Christians saying “Well, I don’t have to do a thing. The Lord is in control of it all and He will take care of it.” They are half right—the Lord is in control, but the question is—will He bother to help a batch of spiritual couch potatoes who, knowing the truth, refused to act on it because they didn’t want to have the responsibility of doing something to deal with the problem?
Where would the Protestant Reformation be today if Martin Luther had decided he didn’t want to be bothered nailing up his 95 Thesis on the door of the Wittenburg Chapel because “the Lord will take care of it all so I don’t need to do anything?”
