A longtime substitute teacher in Phillipsburg, NJ, has been fired after he shared a Bible verse with a student – and upon request gave the child a Bible.  

“It’s unfortunate the Phillipsburg School District chose the path of religious hostility and intolerance against a retired man serving his community and simply responding to a student’s intellectual curiosity,” Hiram Sasser, director of litigation at Liberty Institute, told Fox News. “What’s next – are they going to ban Shakespeare because his plays have Bible quotations?”

Joe Imhof, a close friend of Tutka, was at the school board meeting.

The school board, he told Fox News, was basically telling God to “go to hell.”

“Just because this guy gave a student a pocket New Testament on his lunch hour – that’s enough to throw you out of school,” Imhof said. “They have said tonight, ‘God, we don’t want you in this school.’”

http://radio.foxnews.com/toddstarnes/top-stories/teacher-fired-for-giving-student-bible.html ;

 

In October 2012, substitute teacher Walter Tutka quoted the Bible saying, “So the last will be first, and the first will be last,” to a student who was last to leave the classroom, WFMZ reports.

The student reportedly then asked Tutka where the quote came from numerous times until eventually the teacher showed the student his personal copy of the New Testament bible.

On a separate occasion, the student told the educator that he didn’t own a bible, and it was at that point that Tutka offered the student his own copy. The student accepted the gift but later returned it to Tutka.

The dispute invoked two district policies, which the Phillipsburg school board insists were broken.

The first expressly says that employees cannot distribute religious literature on school grounds; the second says educators must remain neutral while discussing religious materials.

Tutka, who is a well-respected member of the community, is also a member of Gideons International — a ministry known for providing Bibles to school children across the world.

Tutka’s supporters argue that the Bible exchange was a gift and not “distribution,” adding that board is violating its own policy on religion by penalizing the Christian religion in their firing of Tutka.

Yet another teacher was denied her free speech and first amendment rights because she had post its on her desk with biblical/motivational quotes and posters on her wall by Ronald Reagan which cited God. http://christianweb.us/christian_news/2013/01/teacher-forced-to-remove-reagan-quote-bible-verses/ ;

 

And another teacher has not been fired yet, but is under investigation for trampling on the US flag in front of students and calling it a piece of cloth: http://dailycaller.com/2013/01/09/south-carolina-teacher-on-leave-for-stomping-on-american-flag-in-front-of-class/ ;

 

Do you notice any bias on how those who are Christians or conservative are treated versus those who are hostile to Christians or Conservative values?? What is America becoming?? It no longer seems to value the morals and values of our Founding Fathers but disrespects them, along with the Flag and country itself.

Joliet,Illinois double murder stuns victims' families | Video--Teens Kill&Dismember Two Men They Robbed,Were Caught Playing Video Games Near Dead Bodies

Joliet,Illinois double murder stuns victims' families | Video--Teens Kill&Dismember Two Men They Robbed,Were Caught Playing Video Games Near Dead Bodies | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
littlebytesnews's insight:

Two men have been killed and dismembered by four young adults who were caught playing video games in the home when police arrived at the scene of the gruesome murder.

The bodies of Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins were found by police inside a home in the suburb of Joliet, Illinois on Thursday and the atrocious nature of the deaths shocked even veteran members of the force. 

It is thought the accused lured their victims into the home and killed them after trapping them inside.

'This is one of the most brutal, heinous and upsetting things I've ever seen in my 27 years of law enforcement,' Police Chief Mike Trafton said.

'Not only the crime scene, but the disregard for common decency toward human beings.'

Police said Glover and Rankins, both 22 and from Joliet, were lured to the home of 18-year-old Alisa Massaro and then robbed and killed.

Officers discovered the bodies of Glover and Rankins on Thursday when they were called to the home, where they found Massaro playing video games with Adam Landerman, 19, and Joshua Miner, 24.

The three were arrested on first-degree murder charges and Bethany McKee, 18, of Shorewood faces the same. All are being held on $10million bond and appeared in court Monday.

Landerman's mother is a police sergeant, but her superiors immediately said that she would not be involved in the investigation.

The circumstances surrounding the death are still under investigation, but some local reports suggest that drugs may have been involved.

Glover graduated from Joliet Central High School and had made the honor roll and participated in football, wrestling and track, his family said.

Rankins, described as 'a very outgoing, loving, fun person' by his mother, graduated from Joliet West High School.

Massaro's father, Phillip Massaro, told The Herald-News in Joliet that he was in disbelief.

Another reason you can't legislate morality....these teens killed two grown men by suffocation and then tried to dismember them!! No gun law would have prevented this crime, just as no gun law would have prevented Adam Lanza from stealing his mother's guns, killing her and going on a rampage and killing 26 others at a nearby elementary school.

 

How they managed to attack and kill two men is surprising, especially since one of them was a former football player and wrestler, but I guess the four outnumbered them in strength as well?? This crime is horrific, and sadly it will likely be portrayed as a hate crime and the race baitors will come out, while ignoring the fact these kids were likely on drugs and influenced by violent video games.

littlebytesnews's insight:

King Obama has spoken, these are his unconstitutional executive orders against your 2nd amendment right which 'shall not be infringed'. The role of government is to protect our rights to life, liberty and happiness, not restrict them by taking away rights. More laws won't stop criminals, they break laws...we need to protect ourselves and respect the rights of law abiding citizens to be the first line of defense because police can't be there at all times and the SCOTUS ruled they don't have an obligation to protect us unless in the custody of police or govt. 

 

Think police or CPS are supposed to protect you or your child??Read this... Nothing in the language of the Due Process Clause itself requires the State to protect the life, liberty, and property of its citizens against invasion by private actors. The Clause is phrased as a limitation on the State's power to act, not as a guarantee of certain minimal levels of safety and security.

Video:'Bullet To The Head' of NRA Video Game Debated &The New NRA Safety Shooting Game

littlebytesnews's insight:

via Townhall: 

A new online video game is taking political discourse to a whole new level. We alreadyreported the death threats being received by NRA executives and now, a video game which allows users to shoot NRA President David Keene in the head, has been released. Thecreator of the game identified as gizmo01942 Ediot says, "Share this everywhere, especially gun-nut and anti-game websites. Also see if you can't send it in to the NRA somehow, like through the feedback on their website or something." Gizmo also provides screen shots to viewers, which can be seen below.

The game is available for download and comes in the form of a zip file. During a press conference in December, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre berated the video game industry for their use of violence saying, "Isn’t fantasizing about killing people all day really the filthiest form of pornography?”

This video game seems to be retaliation for the NRA's violent video game stance.

WARNING: Graphic content.

 

http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2013/01/15/new-video-game-allows-user-to-shoot-nra-president-in-the-head-n1489825

 

Liberals are so intolerant of others and the biggest hypocrites when it comes to civility. Ironically the NRA came out with their own video game recently available on the iPhone app, which teaches gun safety skills while allowing the user, as young as four years old to aim their weapon at various targets. At least they are target shooting and not aiming weapons at human beings like the liberals have done in the video discussed above.

 

 

Via Forbes:

The game is free, but you can pay 99 cents to upgrade to other types of guns to shoot including the dreaded “AK-47.” Each new gun costs a buck, meaning you could somehow end up spending close to $15 on this nonsense.

The loading screens alternate between giving facts about the NRA (“The Eddie Eagle Gunsafe program has reached more than 25 million children!”) and gun safety tips such as “Know your target what is beyond it” or  ”Never use alcohol or drugs before or while shooting. ”

 

http://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2013/01/15/playing-through-the-nras-new-video-game-for-ages-four-and-up/

 

The review by the Forbes article is rather bias and attacks the NRA for their anti-violent video game stance as well, but at least it does provide some info on what kinds of safety skills/lessons the game provides. However, if it is geared for those four and up, an adult would be needed to read the safety tips, unless it has an audio option that reads it to the user. I don't have an iPhone so I can't test the game or view it to see what it offers to give my opinion, but it's obviously a less violent game and more useful game than the one the anti-gun and pro video game creators came out with above.

Another Reason Gun Bans Don't Make Sense-Hunting Rifles More Lethal Than AR-15??

.223 ban in the works? Military issued cartridges have already been outlawed in most countries. Try taking your .308 Win or .30-06 Springfield on your next hunting trip to South America or on your safari to Africa. They have been outlawed in most of the world. Its not unthinkable that it could happen here. 

Rex reviews the comments of General McChrystal on the "Morning Joe" show on January 8, 2012 titled "Assault rifles are for battlefields, not schools." Why would General Stanley McChrystal make such comments taking advantage of the ignorance of the emotionally charged portion of unarmed America? Is the .233 Rem too lethal for American citizens to own? If you, say bye bye to your .243 Win, your .30-06 or your .338 Lapua Magnum. Rex asks some interesting questions and provides suggestions for appropriate action.

littlebytesnews's insight:

What's up with Gen McCrystal, someone who should know something about ballistics, claiming a smaller bullet is more dangerous and lethal than the average hunting rifle bullet?? The average hunting rifle uses a larger bullet with a greater velocity than the AR-15 because it allows for the killing of a deer or other animal more humanely, yet the gun control nuts want to ban the AR-15 because it happens to be the weapon of choice used by the Newtown, CT maniac. However, the worst US mass shooting in 2007 at VA Tech, the madman used a handgun. The problem is not the weapon used, it's the user/shooter and their intentions. Security is also the problem, gun free zones have proven time and time again to be magnets for suicidal and homicidal criminals who are intent on killing people and often taking their own lives, knowing there will likely be nobody around to fight back and retaliate. You don't fight a gun fight with your fists, unless you're a movie actor and the script allows for it.

 

Here is another reason we must protect our 2nd amendment right: 

 

Guns and politeness.

A few years ago I was working on an Army base.  I was going a little to fast and the MPs stopped me.  The MP that came to my window as the politest law enforcement officer I've ever encountered.  He was respectful.  He was polite.  He was every bit the professional.  The fact that I couldn't see his partner standing in my blind spot with his hand on his holstered weapon ready to draw was not relevant to the discussion.  And this is a post where they had arrested foreign nationals multiple times (spies).

Why were they so polite?  The reason is simple, every person they stop could be a person that out ranked them.  The post commander, a 2 star general was out ranked by at least three other generals that had headquarters on post.  That man in a beat up old junker is just as likely to be a general or colonel as an enlisted man.  So you treat every single stop as if your carrier depended on doing it right.  Because it does.

I've been stopped by the police for vehicle issues (broken passenger side mirror, things like that.  Driving while young.) and one thing stood out.  The politeness of the officer varied depending on what they feared.  For those that stopped me in gun free, boss free zones (campus) they were rude as hell.  For officers in no CCW states, rude but not as rude as campus cops.  For CCW states polite.

The police came to a friends door the other day looking for a dead beat dad.  The stopped at the door and did not attempt to push past, they did not knock and yell "Police, open the door!"  They were polite.  In other countries, where the population at large is disarmed you see the police commonly force their way into a home or office.

One of the things the 2nd amendment does is it helps to create a polite and respectful police force.  If a police officer has in the back of his head that entering a dwelling without permission could result in being shot they think twice.  If they know that the dwelling has no firearms they are much more likely to push their way in.  EVEN if it is not legal for them to do so.  Why?  Because it is easier to beg forgiveness then to ask permission.  Because it is in the officers best interest to take control of the dwelling.  Because it allows the officer to do a visual search and find evidence that can be used to arrest this potential criminal.

Guns in the hands of citizens keeps our police polite.  And this is one of the great things that our founding fathers gave us.

https://plus.google.com/110631207635469909107/posts/3CSZcPZeFaf which also explains the importance of the 2nd amendment and how police treat citizens in gun free zones/countries vs CCW states.

 

In addition, when people ask why the average person needs an 'assault weapon' or self defense consider this:

 

During the recent and ongoing gun control debate, I've heard many people ask, "Wy does an average civilian need an assault weapon?" I have a fundamental problem with this line of question: Why should we have to prove a "need" to demand our fundamental rights, or any one of them, which are guaranteed by, but predate the United States Constitution? But even with that caveat, here is a beautiful example of why we civilians do need access to so-called assault weapons.

For more than a decade, drug cartels and criminals have actually controlled a large part of the Mexican state of Guerrero (the state which contains the resort city of Acapulco); they have extorted, kidnapped, raped, and killed many thousands of people, as the government helplessly looked on. The police, the national guard, the Mexican marines are no help: They're outnumbered and outgunned, and they are corrupted by the very evil they're supposed to fight.

Fed up with the years of violence, townspeople in several Guerrero cities finally took up arms and made a stand:

Chicago Police Superintendent: I'll train officers to shoot concealed carry holders....He should be fired!!

Chicago Police Superintendent: I'll train officers to shoot concealed carry holders....He should be fired!! | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
During an interview on radio station WVON 1690 am and Newsinblack last week, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said he was disappointed with the media only pointing out problems with crime and not reporting on solutions. But perhaps the most surprising comments from the city’s top cop came when McCarthy commented on the upcoming concealed carry law that must be passed in Illinois within the next six months after a federal appeals court last month ruled the state’s ban on concealed carry unconstitutional. McCarthy made a bold and scary prediction that citizens carrying legally could be shot by Chicago police as he reiterated his stance against arming legal citizens.

“You put more guns on the street expect more shootings,” McCarthy said. “I don’t care if they’re licensed legal firearms, people who are not highly trained… putting guns in their hands is a recipe for disaster. So I’ll train our officers that there is a concealed carry law, but when somebody turns with a firearm in their hand the officer does not have an obligation to wait to get shot to return fire and we’re going to have tragedies as a result of that. I’m telling you right up front.”

 

McCarthy’s comments drew immediate and intense criticism from citizens in favor of concealed carry and from people who teach concealed carry courses. Rick Pere, a civilian military contractor and former police officer who lives in downstate Illinois and teaches both the Utah and Florida concealed carry classes, said McCarthy’s comments were full of ignorance and add to the misinformation being given to citizens in Cook County and Chicago. He said McCarthy’s comments come from his position as superintendent, which must coincide with Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

“McCarthy comes from an anti-gun culture in the city of New York and he is a political fixture even though he does ride with his officers occasionally who are out on patrol. He has forgotten where he’s come from,” Pere said. “He’s a politician and they have to sing the chorus of the local political power so they can maintain their jobs. Officers in the rank and file are mostly for concealed carry.”

Even McCarthy’s own department does not agree with his stance on the issue. Both the Chicago Police Sergeant's and Lieutenant's Associations have publicly come out in favor of concealed carry with the Lieutenant’s Association going as far as saying it will enhance public safety.

“We recognize the importance and need for citizens in the state of Illinois to be legally allowed to protect themselves with the right to carry a weapon concealed. We feel that it would enhance citizen safety and in the end make our job easier,” read a statement from Robert Weisskopf, president of the Lieutenant’s Association.  

littlebytesnews's insight:

What a total moron…does he think people with concealed carry weapons walk around holding their guns at everyone and will walk up to a cop and threaten him?? It doesn’t happen in other states where people have concealed carry, why would it happen there. It’s the gangs and thugs who would do that.

Report: @WalMart not ordering more ammo until Gun Control decision is made??

Report: @WalMart not ordering more ammo until Gun Control decision is made?? | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

This is the problem when we get these idiots in office to start demagoguing about gun control when it doesn’t even address the problem. Now Walmart, reportedly, has stopped making ammo orders over the pending gun control decision which means there’s a whole market of ammo out there that just lost a huge buyer. If they don’t make a decision soon, I wonder how many jobs will be lost.

CNS NEWS – WalMart reportedly has stopped selling ammunition ahead of the Obama administration’s anticipated gun control recommendations to Congress — and uncertainty over what new laws may be coming.

 

According to the Investment Watch blog, WalMart Corporation will no longer place new ammunition orders pending “the upcoming decision on the Second Amendment.

littlebytesnews's insight:

I've heard about this and am not sure if this has been confirmed with Walmart yet or if it is just an internet rumor...hopefully there will be a statement from Walmart soon and hopefully this isn't true as they are showing they are willing to give into big govt controls that violate our Constitution, without a decision even being made or a law even being passed.

 

Twitter user @JoesephMRyan1 shared this with me:

I Called Walmart Corporate @ 1-800-925-6278 They are taking comments on Ammo sales: After the answer press 2 then 1 then 1 again Please call takes about 5Mins of your time Tell them you will stop shopping there also Pls RT


I don't know if you get to speak to anyone directly but hopefully if they get enough calls it will get Walmart to issue an official statement and they will back down on their threat as many jobs could be lost if the ammo manufacturing industry or gun industry suffers because of government overreach and more regulations.

Texas has no 'right to walk away' from Union, says White House

Texas has no 'right to walk away' from Union, says White House | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The White House has responded to a petition to allow Texas to secede by saying the Founding Fathers who created the Union “did not provide a right to walk away from it.”
littlebytesnews's insight:

Of course not, Obama wants to be king over all of us...though I don't think seceding isn't feasible since they'd be cut off from the military, all federal funds for the state, etc. 

 

While a state might survive without that support, I don't think they could survive an attack from our enemies abroad and therefore need the US military to protect and defend them.

He sure is a flip flopping hypocrite...he's ok with armed security for his kids and then he wasn't, but after the NRA ad he is considering it for those schools who want it under his 'executive orders' today. But then, he was against funding armed security before and now he's for it...and he was against prosecution of school shooters and now he's for it. He makes no sense.

Video:Print Your Weapon Here--Gun Laws Aren't The Solution To Gun Violence

A little American ingenuity. Download today at Defcad.org
littlebytesnews's insight:

LOL more proof a ban on large magazines won't make a difference, people will find other ways to defend themselves and circumvent the laws...the real problem is lack of security in our schools/gun free zones http://littlebytesnews.blogspot.com/2013/01/a-month-since-tragic-newtown-ct-school.html  Bans on weapons aren't the solution,but increased school security and mental health awareness and treatment are! 

 

 

Defense Distributed uploaded its blueprint for the 3D-printable magazine to its website, Defcad.org, which aims to collect designs for gun components, many of which have been removed from other websites. In just the last six days, according to Wilson, 20,000 files have been downloaded from Defcad, including more than 2,200 downloads of files for printing the three pieces that are assembled to create the magazine.

“The liberty crowd loves it,” says Wilson.

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence does not. “High capacity magazines are part of the weapons of choice of mass murderers,” says the group’s executive director Josh Horwitz. The larger-sized ammo clips were used, for instance, by rogue Army Major Nidal Hasan and the Tucson, Arizona shootings that killed six people and wounded Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Horwitz points out that Tucson shooter Jared Loughner was tackled while attempting to reload a new magazine into his Glock handgun. And police say that Newtown, Connecticut shooter Adam Lanza may have allowed some of his victims to escape while he reloaded his smaller clips.

 

Defense Distributed’s Wilson calls those arguments a “pernicious ideological mechanism. This isn’t a matter of public safety,” he says, so much as a matter of state control versus individual freedoms. “If [a firearm technology] is used by law enforcement or military, you can bet they say it shouldn’t be used by you,” he adds.

Wilson argues that the high capacity magazine ban wouldn’t just be wrong, but also impossible to enforce, as his project aims to show. Even if Defense Distributed’s original goal of printing a gun from scratch remains out of reach, the restrictions on magazine could be far more easily bypassed, he says. “[Lawmakers] are taking a giant step backward, and it makes everything we’ve talked about more practical,” says Wilson. “There’s more opportunity to demonstate the usefulness, the consequences of our project. I can already print this magazine and show that prohibition has run up against a problem.”

2013 Government Gun Ban List – at least 120 firearms included (Video)

2013 Government Gun Ban List – at least 120 firearms included (Video) | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Democrats want to outlaw 120 specifically-named firearms including certain semiautomatic rifles, handguns, and shotguns.
littlebytesnews's insight:

Leave it to the Obama administration to continue to chip away at our Constitutional rights in the wake of a tragedy. You'd think they would put the connection between gun violence and mental health/stability issues, the economic crisis leading to more violent crimes and the lack of security in 'gun free zones', but now they would rather limit individual rights of law abiding citizens than address the real issues and problems our country faces.

 

The Blaze reports:

Vice President Joe Biden on Monday told a group of sympathetic House Democrats that the White House has identified 19 executive actions President Barack Obama can take to unilaterally act on gun control, Politico reports.

Because the Obama administration understands that enacting sweeping gun control legislation through Congress would be difficult, it has placed an emphasis on the use of executive orders to get around Congress, the elected representatives of the American people, and strengthen gun regulations.

Among the executive actions Biden is believed to have recommended to Obama are tougher penalties for people who lie on background checks, elevating gun trafficking to a felony charge and ending limits that make it harder for the federal government to research gun violence. But remember, there are reportedly 19 of them that the White House will consider.

The president’s proposals are also expected to include steps for improving school safety and mental health care, as well as recommendations for addressing violence in entertainment and video games. Pro-gun rights groups, including the NRA, have long insisted that insufficient mental health care and violent images are more to blame for mass shootings than the availability of guns.

 

According to Politico, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) said she told Biden the White House should do as much as it can without Congress.

“I urged him to do as much by executive order as possible,” she said. “Frankly, I don’t have a lot of confidence that this Congress is going to do anything significant.”

 

 

White House officials believe moving swiftly on gun proposals at a national level, before the shock over the Newtown shooting fades, gives Obama the best chance to get his proposals through Congress. Several pro-gun rights lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Republican Rep. Jack Kingston of Georgia, said in the days following the shooting that they were open to discussing possible control measures.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Project Veritas, masquerading as a newly formed gun control group called “Citizens Against Senseless Violence,” recently went door to door asking anti-gun politicians and journalists to place “gun free zone” signs on their property.  Among the targets were the homes of gun control advocates from The Journal News, MSNBC, and The Star Ledger. They even paid a visit to Eric Holder’s house.

 

The results are telling.

While they found lots of armed guards, armed police, and lip-service about how residents agree with the anti-gun cause, they found no one willing to put the signs up. It appears that, despite their advocacy to the contrary, these people believe that advertising one’s property as a “gun free zone” might actually make it less safe.

Armed Good Samaritans Rescue Man After Gunpoint Robbery: They ‘Protected Me When I Couldn’t Protect Myself’ | Video

Armed Good Samaritans Rescue Man After Gunpoint Robbery: They ‘Protected Me When I Couldn’t Protect Myself’ | Video | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

A Houston man was robbed at gunpoint as he made his way to his car after leaving a bar on Thursday. But in addition to the man’s wallet and phone, the robber ended up with bullet wounds and bite marks from a German Shepherd, thanks to a pair of quick-thinking good Samaritans.

Police say the armed thug was canvassing a local neighborhood when he thought he had found an easy mark. The victim, Kevin Dorsey, told KHOU that he hadn’t even closed his car door before a man, dressed in all black and wearing a ski mask, put a gun to his chest and demanded his wallet, cell phone and car keys.

Dorsey took off on foot after being robbed, prompting two men in a Mercedes to ask him what had happened.

“As soon as they pass me, they see the guy has a gun to me,” Dorsey told KPRC. “They stopped right there. The guys in the gray Mercedes asked me, ‘Did you just get jacked?’ I said yes.”

The two unidentified vigilantes went after the suspect and reportedly exchanged fire with the criminal. The good guys eventually won the gun fight and wounded the thief.

Video:Modern Military Weapons That Help Save Soldiers Lives&Protect Civilians

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, or UAVs, have been used since 1996 when the Air Force's Predator drone first became operational. Unmanned drones give the military the ability to remotely conduct reconnaissance missions and missile strikes.

The use of UAVs soared to 500,000 flight hours in 2007. The Air Force, which more than doubled its monthly use of drones between January and October of 2007, was forced to take more pilots out of the air and shift them to remote flying duty at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada to meet part of the demand.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Of course whether our military will get to use some of this new modern equipment and receive the protection they need is another story, especially since sequestration cuts are still pending and the military is preparing for defense spending cuts.

Ted Cruz says there’s ample revenue, that Obama is deliberately DECEIVING people on debt ceiling

Ted Cruz says there’s ample revenue, that Obama is deliberately DECEIVING people on debt ceiling | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Mark Levin interviewed Ted Cruz on his radio show a few days ago where Cruz weighed in on the debt ceiling. In short, he suggested that it is irresponsible fearmongering for Obama to say that we won’t be able to pay our bills if the debt ceiling isn’t raised, arguing that he is deliberately deceiving people to even make that claim:

Not raising the debt ceiling does not mean we default on the debt. And President Obama saying that is just fearmongering and deliberately deceiving people. The average tax revenues for the federal government are roughly $200 billion a month. Service on the debt is between $30-40 billion a month. There is ample revenue to ensure that we service the debt and any responsible president would say ‘regardless of what happens on the debt ceiling, the United States will always honor its debt. We will never default on the debt.’

Cruz explains further, including his prediction that Obama would threaten to not pay troops and social security again like he did last time. That prediction came to pass today. He also explains how the GOP can beat Obama on the debt ceiling if they will simply stand strong.

Listen:

littlebytesnews's insight:

Leave it to Obama to use fearmongering to try to push his agenda again. He'll never let a 'crisis go to waste' or take advantage of people's fears to get his agenda passed. I sure hope the House stays strong and doesn't allow the debt ceiling to be raised like they caved on the fiscal cliff surrender bill. However, I am not confident in Boehner at all, nor the GOP leadership in the Senate.

 

This is what Boehner said today:

 

Speaker John Boehner says US House will pass legislation to lift debt limit, insists on spending controls...http://t.co/Q7DfVeEX  

better not do it without getting the spending cuts FIRST!!

 

"Boehner acknowledged Monday that failing to lift the so-called debt ceiling would have bad consequences. But he also said that "allowing our spending problem to go unresolved" would be just as troublesome.

Without congressional action, the government would have to default on its obligations, a prospect that could send markets into a spiral and do broader harm to the fragile economy."

Kentucky Sheriff Denny Peyman upholds the 2nd Ammendment-Will Not Enforce Any Federal Gun Grabs

“You’ll understand me very well when you leave here today, and why we’re all still going to have our guns here in Jackson.” Peyman said in his opening address to his people.

“I am responsible for the people inside this county… I couldn’t justify, if Obama passes this, it doesn’t matter what he passes, the sheriff has more power than the federal people.” Peyman urged.

“They need to go back and study that. We are a commonwealth. I can ask federal people to leave, they have to leave. I can ask state people to leave, they have to leave.”

“I am the highest elected official in this county, and this is the only opportunity the people have to speak for themselves and say ‘this is what we want.’” Peyman told the audience.

Referring to interviews he has recently conducted with local journalists, Peyman said “They asked ‘how are you going to pull these guns?’, and I said ‘you are never going to pull a gun from Jackson County.”

In an interview with the Lexington Herald-Leader this past weekend, Peyman also stated “I consider this a moral obligation… My office will not comply with any federal actions which violate the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution which I swore to uphold.”

In a separate interview with WKYT news, Peyman spoke about what would happen if the federal government attempted to disarm people in Jackson County:

“We’ll see when push comes to shove. It’s going to have to go into the courtrooms. It’s not going to be, I mean we don’t want a bloodbath in our community when they come in to take guns,” he said. “It’s going to have to be taken care of in a court room before it gets to that point.”

“The only thing I’ve ever told people if someone is kicking or coming in their front door, is I only have to listen to one side of the story.” the Sheriff stated at the town hall meeting.

“I can’t get there quick enough to help those people. My best help to them is to let them keep their firearms… There is nobody who doesn’t really need to have one.”

Peyman then referred to the sanctity of the US Constitution, noting “The Second Amendment makes that pretty clear. Our forefathers made that clear, otherwise it would not have been so high [on the Constitution]. It would have been down the list somewhere.”

“This is the part that is emotional to me,” The sheriff said, his voice cracking.

“I would be ashamed if one of them was in this room right now, and having to listen to what we’re having to talk about. I would be ashamed to have them sit here and listen to them talk about all the people that given their rights for this right for us, and we just give it up so flippantly just because somebody says so. If we did everything that somebody says so, we would not be a country today.”

“I talk about what I can do for my county. I can’t stand up for other counties, I can’t do it for them, but I can stand up for my people.” Peyman vowed.

“I was one of the first people to say, I think they need to arm school teachers. Not all of them, but there is somebody that needs to have a weapon.”

The sheriff then spoke about how the media glamorizes mass shootings and makes them appealing to copycat wannabe’s.

“What would happen if the first two or three that tried it got shot coming in the front door?” Peyman said. “They wouldn’t do that anymore, it would be taken from them, there’s no glory in that for them.”

“In Jackson county, as long as I am Sheriff here, I got children, I got family, I got friends, I got everybody here, and I feel a whole lot better coming into a room if I know everybody is packing, than if I’m the only one, because if they take me out first, then they take everybody else out too.” the Sheriff concluded.

Sheriff Denny Peyman should be commended for his fine job in upholding constitutional rights. He is a shining example to other law enforcement officers who should take note of his concerns regarding the ongoing attack on the Second Amendment. Rest assured, Peyman is also not the only Sheriff ready to stand up and defend the rights of his people.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Good for him...we need more sheriff's and state and federal officials who think like him and are willing to uphold the rule of law and our Constitution. Anyone who doesn't keep their oath to defend and protect our rights in the Constitution should be removed from office immediately.

 

I wish we had a sheriff like him...I'm sure Dipstick will go along with whatever his master Obama wants...we need more leaders like our founders!! I propose we start the 'Founders Party'....men and women who will protect&defend our Constitution and not just say it under oath, but mean it!! Patriots who will stand up to tyranny, big government spending and against the slaughter of innocent human beings by abortion. We have an inalieanble right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and that includes a right to defend our rights...including our lives!! Without the right to life and the right to protect and defend ourselves all other rights become null.
