“Resetting the world isn’t something you can pull off by just pushing a button. It requires a series of well-designed global crises.”
Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum
Why is so much of life out of control? Gas is becoming unaffordable, food is expensive. Crime has taken over major cities with career criminals freely roaming the streets. Corruption has become commonplace and no one is held to account. The FBI is no longer the revered institution it once was. Our borders no longer exist. Government is unresponsive. Our children are no longer being educated. We have lost trust in our election system and mass shootings are becoming frequent. To top it off, the current administration is scrambling to find a way to disarm citizens. All within the last 18 months.
After the Buffalo and Uvalde shootings, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called an emergency session of the House Judiciary Committee to push through a gun control law, this one named the “Protecting Our Kids Act” (POKA). A huge negative for this legislative proposal is that it will accomplish nothing in “protecting our kids” from crazies wielding a weapon. Even Democrat Rep. Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the committee, admitted it “wouldn’t accomplish much.”
The POKA outlaws “large-capacity” magazines (mags that hold over 5 rounds); establishes “safe storage” requirements (for firearms kept in the home); raises the age to purchase semi-auto rifles to 21 from the present 18 years-of-age; and bans bump stocks. There isn’t one specific in the bill that protects children from shooters at the school location or inside the building proper. Nothing to “harden” the target-rich environment made possible by the radicals’ foolhardy invitation, implied by their signs proclaiming “Gun Free Zones,” is found in the bill. No provision for the voluntary arming of qualified teachers or staff in the school or on its premises, or for the presence of armed guards, can be seen in this bill – only restrictions on the possession and use of firearms by law-abiding gun owners.
It was the day before elections, and only a few more hours remained before the San Francisco Department of Elections would close to the public for the day.
I came to pick up credentials to be an election observer.
In this city of nearly one million people, please allow me to share with you an indication of the level of apathy that exists: only five people before me had shown up to request credentials to observe the election process.
That process looked something like this: Set up for elections, administer the voting process, close the polling places, scan ballots, count votes, adjudicate questionable ballots, audit the outcomes, approve the results.
In light of the recent school shooting in Texas, how do we best protect children?
In the aftermath of the school shooting in Uvalde, TX, the media were filled with opinions and accusations about what was behind the tragic deaths of 19 school children and two teachers: lack of religion, fatherlessness, a mental health crisis, video games, the culture in general, the cops screwed up, etc.
While there may be some truth to all the above, there is one prevailing reason coming from the left: our gun laws need a vast overhaul and we need fewer available firearms. Not surprisingly, the teachers unions are front and center in the gun-grab crowd. The annual NRA convention, held in Houston just days after the shooting, drew national teacher union leaders and their minions like flies to a sugar bowl. While many believe that one important way to protect children is to arm teachers, the unionistas reject this idea emphatically, claiming that putting guns in teachers’ hands “makes schools more dangerous.”
We continue to urge citizens to take ownership of the responsibility to keep the Republic!
Remember, an educated and enlightened citizenry is vital for our future. As it has been written:
“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18 – KJV
The Citizens Voice provides information that the mainstream media hopes people don’t receive. Forward these newsletters to your friends and let them witness, first hand, that there is more than one side to a story. Then they will begin to understand the peril that our nation is in and be able to make informed decisions.
We are truly thankful for all of our readers who have chosen to assist our efforts in bringing the information and words of encouragement to all Americans we can possibly reach. We are truly grateful for the generous donations from our fellow Citizen Sentinels. It helps us keep going as a truly volunteer effort. Thank you so very much for whatever can be given.
“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” ~ Samuel Adams, 1776
Ownership of our Republic is now the fight of our time! Keeping our Republic depends upon the genuine sense of ownership of the Land of the Free. Either this is our country, or it will belong to those who are actively seeking to take it from us. It is the same mentality that inspired someone long ago to express the sentiment that “All it takes for evil to triumph is that good people do nothing.” Efforts to take responsibility for keeping this nation a free Republic are organically occurring right now all across the nation.
