INSIGHT CRIME: MEXICAN CYBERWARFARE
INSIGHT CRIME REPORTS
"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed. When the British forgot that they got a revolution. And, as a result, we Americans got a Constitution; a Constitution that, as those who wrote it were determined, would keep men free. If we give up part of that Constitution we give up part of our freedom and increase the chance that we will lose it all." --Ronald Reagan

News links from www.Need2No.US:
Marx said that “Communism begins where atheism begins.”
My thought for this news of import is the above comment from Marx and we have to understand as a people that each action of the liberals and other freedom hating groups is to redefine America in their own image, not that of what the founding fathers had envisioned or what we have known for the past 150 years, let alone what each of us would intend under God. The attack on religion or the picking of an extreme fringe part of a religion is a tool to create instability. One only has to look at our own country since the 60's to see how the attacks on religion, family and the pushing of drugs, violence and sex has impacted the moral fiber of our country but let’s take Palestine as an example.
An Arab Islamic Palestine or Palestinian people is a myth. Historically, Palestine meant the Jewish ‘Holy Land’ and Palestinian stood for ‘Jews of the Holy Land’ So the current understanding of Palestine and Palestinians is a myth at best and hijacking of what belonged to others at worst.
In one of the most candid admissions ever made, Zuhair Muhsin, little known leader of the PLO splinter gang known as “Al Sa’iqa” (The Storm) and backed by Syria, said in a March 31, 1977 interview with the Dutch newspaper Trouw:
The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct Palestinian people to oppose Zionism.
For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.
The Palestinians already denied Syrian Palestinians the ability to relocate to the West Bank as it was preferable to have tens of thousands murdered than to limit the overall goal in attacking Israel. If interested look at previous news of import, there is news on this subject.

This is our lead story: H.R.226 - Support Assault Firearms Elimination and Reduction for our Streets Act
On January 13, 2013, H.R. 226 was introduced in the House of Representatives by Connecticut Democrat Rep. Rosa DeLauro and by Arizona Democrat Rep. Mr. Grijalva . The bill will amend the 1986 IRS code and allow a credit if taxpayers “surrender” their guns to the government.

Supreme Court May Have Final Word on Obama’s Gun Control
This is an excerpt from Obama's Inaugural Address
"Through it all, we have never relinquished our skepticism of central authority, nor have we succumbed to the fiction that all society's ills can be cured through government alone. But we have always understood that when times change, so must we; that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges; that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action."
In my opinion, in the address itself, President Obama made the case that liberty is not timeless; that it must adjust to the times, and that "preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action" this bothers me beyond measure and it is something for you to ponder. Look at the attached Newsweek cover pic of the inauguration.
As Joel Kotkin wrote today, "Barack Obama is both the creation and culmination of a new "power class" that shares the impatience of early twentieth century progressives with the democratic process, and prefers a technocratic model that Obama has emulated through his extra-political, executive-order-style management."
Let us look back on a few highlights of the past four years:
*First Term: Obama Increased Debt $50,521 Per Household; More Than First 42 Presidents in 53 Terms Combined
*First Term: Food Stamp Recipients Increased 11,133 Per Day Under Obama
*First Term: Americans Collecting Disability Increased 1,385,418 - Now 1 for Each 13 Full-Time Workers
*First Term: Americans ‘Not in Labor Force’ Increased 8,332,000
*Gallup: Obama's 1st-Term Approval Rating Among Lowest of Post-WWII Presidents
First-Term Average Approval Ratings:
Johnson - 74.2%
Kennedy - 70.1%
G.W. Bush - 62.2%
G.H.W. Bush - 60.9%
Nixon - 55.8%
Truman - 55.6%
Reagan - 50.3%
Clinton - 49.6%
Obama - 49.1%
Ford - 47.2%
Carter - 45.5%

BORDER ISSUES: MEXICO
"By calling attention to 'a well-regulated militia,' 'the security of the nation,' and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms,' our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy... The Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important." - John F. Kennedy
