TWG: CLEARLY, we can’t trust 99% of the “people” in government with our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Harry Reid has pulled yet ANOTHER of his sleazy tricks. If they pass this bill, it will be crystal clear that TREASON is rampant within the walls of each and every government office in this Nation.
We will see very soon which one’s need to be tried, convicted and punished accordingly for their TREASON. Take names and NEVER FORGET who is aiding and abetting the enemies of this Nation and Her Citizens and who, exactly, has betrayed each and every law-abiding gun owner in this Nation.
Keep notes on this den of poisonous vipers, as well as those who support them. These are NOT our fellow Americans. They are enemy invaders, traitors and treasonists. Treat them as such.
Sen. Reid Beefs up “Base Bill” to Destroy Gun Ownership
We now know a lot more about what’s going to happen with gun control legislation than we did a few days ago.
First, the number of the bill we are fighting is S. 649. Harry Reid introduced it on Thursday and brought it directly onto the Senate calendar. This means the bill can now come up at any time — probably soon after the Easter recess is over.
Second, the bill is a lot worse than even we anticipated.
We expected it to contain the Veterans Gun Ban, which would mean that you would sell, gift, or raffle a gun in America at the risk of a 15-year prison sentence because of something you didn’t know about the veteran/buyer.
But, surprisingly to us, the Far Left has convinced Reid to include the original Schumer version of the Universal Registry Bill. This would ban private sales of firearms, unless purchasers first get the permission from the government. If Senators can pass this de facto registration bill, they will be well on the way to confiscation (see, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo in New York, who has a gun owner registry and has called for gun confiscation). If this bill is passed, Senators will claim that they “broke the back” of gun owners in America.
Third, there is still every evidence that Reid will move to proceed to the bill under “regular order,” which means he will need 60 votes to advance to the “gun control buffet.”
GOA has been talking and making our case with a host of Senate Republicans, and we would hope that everyone in the Senate understands the importance of stopping the “motion to proceed” to Reid’s gun control legislation.
Fourth, as we predicted, anti-gun zealots have begun to use the “ObamaCare Paradigm” to threaten, bribe, and coerce senators into submission on the most far-reaching aspects of gun control, including Feinstein’s proposal to ban shotguns, rifles and handguns that millions of Americans legally own. So if the “motion to proceed” to S. 649 is adopted with 60 votes, then Feinstein’s ban could be passed in the Senate with only 50 votes (plus Biden). Click here for a more technical explanation as to how this would occur.
Already, articles are being published to intimidate any Democratic Senator who votes against any gun control and threatening them with the prospect of facing an anti-gun primary challenger — just like we saw on ObamaCare.
Fifth, there may be unholy alliances at work which could succeed in achieving a dangerous gun control compromise. One Capitol Hill newspaper is now reporting that “Sen. Joe Manchin and the National Rifle Association are quietly engaged in private talks on a proposal to broaden background checks on purchasers of firearms.” We hope this is not true, however you should be aware of this report and use whatever contacts you have to prevent this from happening. Be assured, you can rely on Gun Owners of America to never engage in any compromises!
ACTION: The strategy remains: We need to defeat this bill by filibustering and voting down the “motion to proceed” to S. 649. Please contact your senators and distribute this alert far and wide.
Show up at their offices with a delegation during the congressional recess. Rally and conduct demonstrations and call-a-thons and writing campaigns. Know that the anti-gun Left will be doing the same.

Molon Labe! the Movie: An Oath Keepers Nation-Wide Call To Action
by Elias Alias, Oath Keepers editor * February 25, 2013
We are going to talk about Molon Labe! the movie, but first, allow me to just say that I am chuckling up my sleeve in the wake of the Obama Administration’s all-out assault on the Constitution and its Second Amendment. Why? There are several reasons. For one thing, Obama has done more for gun sales than anyone in history. Also, he has with this one major goof, awakened millions of Americans to the direness of our time in history. Additionally, he has alerted the liberty movement on both sides of the aisle to the fact that the General government now feels big enough to finally take full control over the American people by asserting some vague, opaque, and presumed authority to actually disarm a free people across the board, Left and Right and all in between. Finally, Obama has made liars of the ADL and the SPLC in a most costly way. Let me explain:
When Oath Keepers formed in 2009 we were attacked by the media (Hardball and the O’Reilly Factor etc.) and by private-sector think tanks such as the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) and the SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center). We were described as “anti-government” and “extremists” and “conspiracy theorists”.
All who attacked us publicly with such slurs have since shut up about us, silenced by the actions of their fearless leader, President Obama. Obama is not only the most successful gun salesman in American history – he also has trashed his cheerleaders dandily by doing exactly what they chirped he never would do – such as come for our guns.
Indulge me for one brief example please. This is what the ADL published about Oath Keepers in 2009:
One manifestation of the ideology of resistance was the creation in March 2009 of the Oath Keepers, an anti-government group that tries to recruit police and military personnel and veterans. Members refuse to obey hypothetical “orders” from the government, “orders” that speak more to their own paranoid and conspiratorial beliefs than to any realistic government action. The “orders” the Oath Keepers refuse reveal their extreme conspiratorial mindset, because the “orders” are not instructions ever likely to be actually handed down by Obama or his officials; instead, they are reflective of the anti-government conspiracy theories embraced by the extreme right. The first “order,” for example, that they refuse to follow is any order “to disarm the American people.”
The ADL scoffed at the very first of our “Ten Orders We Will Not Obey” –
1. We will NOT obey any order to disarm the American people.
Again: The ADL said, “The ‘orders’ the Oath Keepers refuse [to obey] reveal their extreme conspiratorial mindset, because the ‘orders’ are not instructions ever likely to be actually handed down by Obama or his officials…”
Well, that was then, and this is now. Obama most certainly wants our guns, and one of his champions put it this way –
ANTI-GUN is ANTI-GOV
So the anti-gun lobby calls Oath Keepers “anti-gov”, when in reality Oath Keepers is supporting the very document which created the General government by calling for the reinstatement in every State and County of the Constitutional Militia. That is what government is supposed to be doing, as Dr. Edwin Vieira points out clearly. The Second Amendment contains the only item which the Constitution says is “Necessary” – “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State….”. Nothing else in the Constitution is said to be “Necessary”.
So the conflict is actually between anti-gov /anti-gun forces and the patriots who are demanding that the General government get back into its Constitutional box of enumerated duties. In reality, the criminal-minded anti-gun movement is actually the anti-gov movement, and Oath Keepers is not related to either. You may ask how I can say that. It’s simple, really.
Your right and duty to keep and bear arms as an individual member of the Constitutional Militia is mentioned in four places in that founding legal charter which created the government, is it not? The Militia is mentioned three times in the main body of the Constitution and once in the ten Amendments which were enshrined in the Constitution prior to ratification – the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., has laid this out very nicely in his extraordinary book, “The Sword And Sovereignty”.
THE “M” WORD
Since the Constitution created the General Government, anyone who would go against the Constitution must be the real culprit who is “anti-government”. Oath Keepers supports the entire Constitution as written, but the ADL is hell-bent on ignoring the importance of the Constitution’s denotative statements which require that the States have and maintain their respective Militias. So in fact, it is the ADL which is “anti-government” because of the ADL’s participation with the Gun-control Lobby, which supports Obama’s attack on the right and duty of Americans to keep and bear arms.
In fact, Dr. Vieira’s book is a scholarly history of the Militia of the several States and is rendered with superb Constitutional contexts by the man I think to be America’s foremost authority on the original intent of the Founders. Dr. Vieira’s book is so powerful that it has inspired James Jaeger of Matrix Entertainment to commission a new film based on the book. And that new film is what I want to inspire everyone reading this to support big time, right now.
James Jaeger has a collection of remarkable documentary films produced in the highest of standards. He has completed five already and his sixth is now progressing nicely. Named “Molon Labe”, this newest in his Constitution series of documentaries is packed with experts which include Stewart Rhodes, Chuck Baldwin, and Sheriff Mack, three of our favorite Oath Keepers. But also in the film is Ron Paul, G. Edward Griffin, Pat Buchanan, Alex Jones, Jesse Ventura, Larry Pratt, Catherine Austin Fitts, and other serious thinkers who are devoted to educating Americans about the deeper meanings in our Constitution.
MOLON LABE! The MOVIE
Molon Labe: How The Second Amendment Guarantees America’s Freedom is the definitive movie about the Militia of the several States.
This past week James Jaeger and I enjoyed a long conversation. James is the quality film maker who specializes in Constitutional documentaries. He has five wonderful films in his Constitution Collection. All of those movies are now available online for free downloading and viewing. Click here –
Ron Paul and G. Edward Griffin and Edwin Vieira are regulars in each of James’ movies, and Pat Buchanan often joins in along with varied other experts. James’ sixth documentary film is all about the Militia of the several States. Because Oath Keepers is the one organization which has the guts to stand up for the whole Second Amendment, James has offered us a wonderful opportunity to help with the production of this film Molon Labe!
As James has stated already –
For those of you who haven’t seen the new trailer – complete with donor and producer credits as of 09 Feb 2013 — it’s up at http://youtu.be/YBshf2BL5Zc This trailer has a clip of Ron Paul, G. Edward Griffin, Stewart Rhodes and Pastor Chuck Baldwin’s interviews. We will include a clip from Larry Pratt’s interview as soon as it comes in from our DC-VA camera unit.
(EA note: That interview with Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America has been filmed already and will be in studio first week of March, whereupon a clip of Mr. Pratt will be added to our public trailer.)
Let us note something about the NRA, while thinking of GOA. Last week I posted an article at Oath Keepers national about a Massachusetts town which has just thrown out the Obama-styled “assault weapons ban”. At the town hall meeting where this was announced the packed house gave a standing and hearty ovation. In response, the president of the NRA had this to say on the record –
[quoting] The NRA’s David Keene responded to the decision with the organization’s standard middle-of-the-road defense of the Second Amendment and the Bill of Rights.
“One of the things that people in these town meetings and other folks ought to look at is the constitution itself. It is possible and it is legal to put certain restrictions on second amendment rights,” he said, “but those kinds of restrictions have to be looked at very critically.”
When I pointed that out to James Jaeger and a few friends, one replied back to me –
Some suspect that Mr. Keene may be expressing the conventional wisdom that no constitutional rights are “absolute”, but that all of them are subject to some “regulation”. On the general level, this is probably less than accurate as a “right” implies freedom of action, whereas a “regulation” implies some curtailment of that freedom. So, if there is a “right”, to that extent there can be no “regulation”; and if there is “regulation”, to that extent there can be no “right”. It would be safe to wager that 95+% of the legal profession holds a similar view as the NRA and probably has never questioned it because this is what they were taught in law “schools”, and this is the method of “analysis” used currently in the courts. Thus, I imagine that Mr. Keene is less malicious than he is misinformed. Unfortunately, this may be the way most of the hierarchy in the NRA, and the NRA’s Second Amendment “defenders”, also think. There may be room for a more conservative interpretation of the Second Amendment.
And James Jaeger adds –
Like Larry Pratt, Wayne LaPierre, the CEO of the NRA, has also been taking intense abuse from the gun-control lobby. Can you IMAGINE how this abuse would escalate were the NRA to acknowledge that gun ownership serves basically FIVE purposes, not just THREE?! The three everyone talks about are: 1) target practice, 2) hunting, and 3) self-defense, but the other two almost never mentioned are: 4) deterrent against tyranny AND 5) participation in the “Militia of the several States”. Why are 4 and 5 almost never mentioned even though the Founders mention the Militia in four separate places in the U.S. Constitution? If the Founders mention deterrent and Militia, but few others mention them, is this not be a serious red flag?
MOLON LABE – How the Second Amendment Guarantees America’s Freedom, now in production, will address this red flag and discuss how an application of the Constitution can remedy most of the problems WE THE PEOPLE currently have with our government and our nation’s security.
If you view this brief three minute trailer and look at the opening credits you’ll see that James wants Oath Keepers to play a prominent role in the production of the film. That is important for Oath Keepers, because this movie is going to be the hottest movie in the patriot movement this year. It is important to Oath Keepers that all of our members feel a sense of involvement, and personal pride in the production and distribution of this movie.
Therefore I am calling on each patriot reading this to voluntarily do two things now, and one other thing later after the film goes public.
First, please donate to this movie: For online donations: http://www.molon.us/donate/ The reason I am asking for donations is to hurry the film along to completion. As more money comes in, the completion date comes much sooner. Oath Keepers thinks that this film is very important and because of our nation’s precarious balance under the threat of outright tyranny we would like to see this movie completed by early summer. That is entirely possible if enough of us donate to the project. Think of it as an Oath Keepers project, something each of us can do in the comfort of our own homes, yet it is something with huge power when all of us pitch in together.
For checks or money orders or wire transfers:
Matrix Entertainment Corp., 223 W. Lancaster Ave., Devon, PA 19333. To arrange for a direct bank deposit or a confidential donation, please contact us by the above address, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (212) 933-9374. Thank you.
Secondly, please pass this article around to your friends and email lists, and tell people about the movie.
James’ FIAT EMPIRE went viral during Ron Paul’s 2008 campaign as the Tea Party awakened to the ominous problems inherent with the Federal Reserve System. More than five million Americans downloaded that film. Because of today’s political climate, laced as it is with unbelievable tension and pre-revolutionary stress, Molon Labe! will fare even better – with our help. As a total tool for Oath Keepers’ Reach, Teach, and Inspire program, nothing could be a greater blessing.
Oath Keepers is presently launching “Operation Molon Labe! Counties”. Molon Labe! the movie is a positive asset for that project. The sooner it’s out to the public, the better for our Counties.
Oath Keepers is currently launching our “Molon Labe! Pledge”. Again, Molon Labe! the movie authenticates that stance by Oath Keepers.
Thirdly, after the film is released to the public this summer, please hold screenings in your local area, your civic and public groups, even home viewing parties, so that you’re doing your part in preparing your County to be a Molon Labe! County. This movie will not only validate Oath Keepers courageous stance in calling for the reinstatement of the Constitutional Militia of the several States, it also will give a huge boost to Sheriff Mack’s Constitutional Sheriffs And Peace Officers Association by adding another dimension to his traditional Posse.
So those are reasons why Oath Keepers is now asking for your support in helping James Jaeger and Matrix Entertainment launch “Molon Labe!”, the movie. My Friends, it’s time! I’m all in. Join me! Do it for Oath Keepers! Do it for America the Beautiful!
Message From James Jaeger
A new website has been created for MOLON LAB at http://www.molon.us At this site you can read the script, listen to the narration, review the budget, see what experts are in the show and watch additional clips.
MOLON LABE will be our sixth film on the U.S. Constitution. FIAT EMPIRE, featuring Ron Paul, was the first and this went viral, won a Telly Award and hit #1 on the Internet three times. You can watch FIAT EMPIRE, and the other four films, as a free public service at http://www.YouTube.com/OriginalIntentDoc More than 15,000 people watch these movies every day, so word IS getting out.
But we need your help to complete MOLON LABE quickly. Time is of the essence. If the gun-control lobby gets a “law” passed to require universal background checks, it’s only a short step to universal registration and universal confiscation. Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin and extreme statists in today’s gun-control lobby know the drill well. So PLEASE disseminate this email. Put all or part of it up on your website and donate what you can by going to http://www.molon.us/donate Multiple donations can be accumulated to earn screencredits farther up the producer chain.
Thank you for all you have done and your attention to this important project,
Final note from Ol’ Elias – Please make sure that you let James know that your donation came from Oath Keepers – it will help him keep tabs on how well our organization helped produce this movie. Also, if you cannot donate, please at least send a postcard to James at the address above to let him know you’ll be spreading the word for the movie. And please do pass this article around to everyone. This is a work which we all can do and will have positive effects. Even better, we can all learn about our history and the fine points of the Constitution while we’re at it.
Time’s up. This is the time. Dr. Vieira has given us a plan which will work as we take back our country at the County and State level. It’s non-violent in the tradition of Martin Luther King and Gandhi, it’s Constitutional, and this one can actually work! Seize this vision. Catch the Spirit of 1776! Do it now.
Thank You, Oath Keepers! Hoooahh!

With all of the emotion that proposals to infringe on the right to keep and bear arms can generate, what started as a calculated insult against a gun rights proponent speaking at a forum in Oregon turned into an open display of anger and self-humiliation by a former Democrat statehouse candidate.
Lee Coleman fled the hall sputtering insults as he was being questioned by a laughing cameraman.
The event was a Washington County Public Affairs Forum held on Monday…….(Con’t)

Washington Dims, Caught In The Act, Withdraw Proposed Legislation Violating Fourth Amendment and Second Amendment Rights.
TWG: We knew this would never pass muster, but it should be clear to every single citizen in this country who values Freedom and Liberty that these politicians will NEVER stop their attacks against We, The People. They’re LYING when they say they “didn’t know this was in it”. It was also included in previous attempts they’ve made to usurp our Bill of Rights. Adam Kline is one of my LEAST favorite gun grabbers in that State, a deceitful liar with a clearly demonstrated animosity toward the citizens of Washington State and toward our Bill Of Rights. When are the American people going to begin holding these treasonous politicians accountable for their heinous violations?
Gun bill giving sheriff right to inspect homes pulled by Washington lawmakers
The Washington Times
Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Washington lawmakers have pulled a contentious gun-control bill from the state’s legislative tracking website, after calling a section that gave law enforcement authority to enter homes and check for proper weapons storage a “mistake.”
The Seattle Times reports that Seattle trial lawyer Lance Palmer first raised doubts about Senate Bill 5737 to the newspaper, complaining: “They always say, we’ll never go house to house to take your guns away. But then you see this, and you have to wonder.”
Mr. Palmer was referring to a now-scrapped section of the text that gave the local sheriff the right to conduct home searches for proper storage guns once each year. The text of the bill — prior to its scrapping — read, as reported by The Seattle Times: “In order to continue to possess an assault weapon that was legally possessed on the effective date of this section, the person possessing shall … safely and securely store the assault weapon. The sheriff of the county may, no more than once per year, conduct an inspection to ensure compliance with this subsection.”
Violators — those who wouldn’t let the sheriff inside to inspect — could get up to a year in jail, The Seattle Times reported. Even Mr. Palmer, a self-described liberal, found the provision distasteful.
“I’m a liberal Democrat,” he said, in The Seattle Times report. “But now I understand why my right-wing opponents worry about having to fight a government takeover. It’s exactly this sort of thing that drives people into the arms of the NRA.”
Democrat bill sponsors, facing widespread outcry, told The Seattle Times they didn’t fully vet the eight-page bill before introducing it last week and that the home-inspection allowance was a simple oversight.
“I made a mistake,” Sen. Adam Kline said, according to The Seattle Times. “I frankly should have vetted this more closely.”
And main bill sponsor, Sen. Ed Murray, said: “I have to admit that shouldn’t be in there,” according to The Seattle Times.
The original version of the bill containing the disputed language is no longer available on the state’s website. The Seattle Times, however, maintains a copy for view on its site.

SHOCKING Justice Department Memo Confession: Assault Weapons Ban Won’t Work Without Registration & Confiscation
SHOCKING OBAMA JUSTICE DEPT. MEMO: Assault Weapons Ban Won’t Work Without Confiscation and Gun Registration (Video)
Posted by Jim Hoft on Monday, February 18, 2013, 7:32 AM
Joseph Stalin’s firearms confiscation was a tremendous success for the Socialist state.
Under the Tsar, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. That all changed when Stalin and the communists took control. Stalin was able to control, starve, punish and imprison a defenseless people… after he took their guns. (Zinnfigur)
But that could never happen in the United States, right?
Or maybe not…
In this short video by the NRA, an internal Justice Department (the same Justice Department ran by Eric ‘Fast and Furious’ Holder), it is revealed that the Obama administration’s own research shows that an assault weapons ban would only be effective with mandatory gun confiscation and that universal background checks would only be effective with federal gun registration.
Via Guns Saves Lives:
Hat Tip Mara
In their January 4, 2013 document, Summary of Select Firearm Violence Prevention Strategies, the Obama Justice Department admitted that an assault weapons ban would not be effective without confiscation and gun registration.
In related news… Missouri Democrats are pushing an assault weapons ban with a mandatory confiscation to happen within 90 days of passage….
