Netanyahu Tells America It’s Now Or Never

Netanyahu has drawn a line in the sand, only this time, it’s for the U.S.

According to a Maariv report, when speaking to a visiting delegation from the American Jewish Committee, Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel was simply not strong enough to force a halt to Iran’s nuclear enrichment program. In order to halt the program, Bibi said, the U.S. would have to strike, and they must do so this year.  – BusinessInsider

Netanyahu:

“The sanctions are only likely to stop Iran if there is a credible (military) threat over their head … and in order for it to be a credible threat, you need to mean it, meaning that if the sanctions don’t work – and they haven’t until now – you will use it,” he said.

Syria: Israeli planes attacked military research center

Israeli warplanes attacked a military research center in Damascus province at dawn on Wednesday, Syria’s military command said, denying reports that the planes had struck a convoy carrying weapons from Syria to Lebanon.

Two people were killed and five wounded in the attack on the site in Jamraya, which it described as one of a number of “scientific research centers aimed at raising the level of resistance and self-defense.”

The building was destroyed, the military command said in a statement carried by state media.
It said the planes crossed into Syria below the radar level, just north of Mount Hermon, and returned the same way.

Sources told Reuters earlier that Israeli jets had bombed a convoy on Syria’s border with Lebanon on Wednesday, apparently targeting weapons destined for Hezbollah. JPost

Update On America’s Potential Gun Ban

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant wants to block Obama’s federal gun actions
“I am asking that you immediately pass legislation that would make any unconstitutional order by the President illegal to enforce in Mississippi by state or local law enforcement,” Bryant wrote in a letter to his Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves and state House Speaker Philip Gunn.


My Comment: He doesn’t need to pass anything though it’s already illegal. Simply refuse to comply. States rights per the Constitution and further. Mack/Printz v USA, the U S Supreme Court declared that the states or their political subdivisions, “are not subject to federal direction.”

Gloversville mayor voicing concern over gun law
“Most people are law-abiding citizens and may go ahead and sell those or turn those over, but you’re going to have a fraction of people that are going to take a stand, and I can just predict a Waco-style standoff in some rural area and it’s not going to end well,” said Mayor King.

Statement by Gov. Perry on President Obama’s Executive Actions

Gov. Rick Perry released the following statement regarding President Obama’s executive actions:

“The Vice President’s committee was appointed in response to the tragedy at Newtown, but very few of his recommendations have anything to do with what happened there.

“Guns require a finger to pull the trigger. The sad young man who did that in Newtown was clearly haunted by demons and no gun law could have saved the children in Sandy Hook Elementary from his terror.

“There is evil prowling in the world – it shows up in our movies, video games and online fascinations, and finds its way into vulnerable hearts and minds. As a free people, let us choose what kind of people we will be. Laws, the only redoubt of secularism, will not suffice. Let us all return to our places of worship and pray for help. Above all, let us pray for our children.

“In fact, the piling on by the political left, and their cohorts in the media, to use the massacre of little children to advance a pre-existing political agenda that would not have saved those children, disgusts me, personally. The second amendment to the Constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president.” – Gov. Perry’s Office

WEB Notes: I would add, psychiatric drugs are also a problem. All of these shooters have been on some mind altering medication that even warns of violent behavior among other things. Shouldn’t we be asking questions?

The County Sheriff: The Ultimate Check & Balance

By: Brandon Ward

Here are some clips from a few articles you may find interesting. The Sheriff holds the highest law enforcement position in his county and is NOT subject to Federal direction. This is important to understand considering the recent gun ban rhetoric and the general course our country is headed down.

Further down in this post there is a link to a conference of Northern California Sheriffs who understand and stand by this.

The County Sheriff: The Ultimate Check & Balance

The point remains, if any abuse occurs in your county by federal officials; does your sheriff have the guts and the authority to protect and defend you? Does that question not sound redundant? Is he not bound by oath to do just that?

Yes, he has the right and the duty to do so. In Mack/Printz v USA, the U S Supreme Court declared that the states or their political subdivisions, “are not subject to federal direction.” The issue of federal authority is defined even further in this most powerful Tenth Amendment decision. The two sheriffs who brought the suit objected to being forced into federal service without compensation pursuant to some misguided provisions of the Brady Bill. The sheriffs sued the USA (Clinton adm.) and won a major landmark case in favor of States’ Rights and local autonomy. In this ruling by the Supreme Court, some amazing principles were exposed regarding the lack of power and authority the federal government actually has. In fact, this is exactly the issue addressed by the court when Justice Scalia opined for the majority stating, “…the Constitution’s conferral upon Congress of not all governmental powers, but only discreet, enumerated ones.”

Scalia then quotes the basis of the sheriffs’ suit in quoting the Tenth Amendment which affirms the limited powers doctrine, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution…are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” To clarify this point, we need to understand that the powers and jurisdiction granted to the federal government are few, precise, and expressly defined. The feds have their assignments within constitutional boundaries and the states have theirs, as well.

Sheriffs Stand TALL for the Constitution
Here are eight county sheriffs from Northern CA and Southern OR speaking on at panel at the Defend Rural America event October 22, 2011 in Yreka. Despite the low media coverage there were about 700 people in attendance from all over California, Oregon and as far away as Wyoming. The sheriffs made it perfectly clear that they are the last line of defense for their citizens and given authority by the 10th Amendment.

“Guns Across America” rally on Jan. 19, 2013, at your state capital building

Please attend the “Guns Across America” rally on Jan. 19, 2013, at your state capital building. This event starts at “high noon” local time. I’m posting a link for the event, and for my Facebook page, “Gun Control = More Crime.” Please America, I implore you to stand up for our 2nd amendment rights. Our voices must be heard. Many states are having some excellent guest speakers. The Austin, TX rally is pleased to announce Texas Land Commisioner Jerry Patterson, and Sheriff Richard Mack will be speaking. I have posted a link to Sheriff Mack’s new book below. Other states speaker announcements to follow. Stay tuned.
Lawful gun owners use their weapon reluctantly, and only in the gravest of danger. They exercise skill and discipline with their defensive training. Unlike police, a lawful gun owner will never give you a speeding ticket, or tax you to provide you with protection.

Responsible gun owners have always acted as peacekeepers in society.

We acknowledge our responsibility to our well-being, and those around us. We acknowledge that laws are not followed by criminals, and valiantly stand opposed to restrictions on the tools we legally use for defense.

American Gun Owners.
Armed, trained, and peaceful

Alert: New York Has Gun Deal, With Focus on Mental Ills

“The expanded ban on assault weapons would broaden the definition of such weapons, banning semiautomatic pistols and rifles with detachable magazines and one military-style feature, as well as semiautomatic shotguns with one military-style feature. New Yorkers who already own such guns could keep them but would be required to register them with the state.
The legislative package, which Mr. Cuomo said he believed would be “the most comprehensive package in the nation,” would ban any gun magazine that can hold over 7 rounds of ammunition — the current limit is 10 rounds. It would also require background checks of ammunition buyers and automated alerts to law enforcement of high-volume purchases.

Walmart Limiting Ammo Sales…

By: Brandon Ward

There are reports out saying Walmart is not selling anymore ammo or restricting it.

I just got off the phone with my local Walmart and this is more true than not. I asked if they had any 9mm ammo to which he replied that they were out. When I asked when more would arrive he said that’s all being handled by Corporate and they just put a stop in effect. I had him explain more and he said, Corporate says our warehouses are very low so they will send what they feel needs to be sent out. When I asked when did this take effect he said this week. He said the funny thing is he had big shipments of ammo scheduled to arrive in this week and then it got canceled. He said he had a little bit of 270 and another rifle round coming in.
