On Tuesday March 14th, our illegitimate president issued another illegitimate executive order.  This one is intended to make it more difficult for Americans to purchase guns, by adding more odious hoops they must climb through, in order to exercise one of their most important God-given natural rights. 

The changes made by this executive order are more incremental than drastic.  Progressives are firm believers in the philosophy of incrementalism.   Fewer individuals notice if their rights are stripped away by a gradual eroding.  By the time most notice the full effects of the numerous little encroachments it is too late.

The stated purpose of the executive order is discussed in this article, which appeared in The Hill.

President Biden on Tuesday plans to announce an executive order that aims to increase the number of background checks conducted before gun sales, cracking down on firearms dealers who violate federal law.

The goal of the executive order, set to be unveiled during a Biden visit to Monterey Park, Calif., is to move the U.S. as close to a system of universal background checks for all gun sales as possible without requiring legislation from Congress. Biden has called for Congress to pass universal background checks, but such legislation is a non-starter in the GOP-controlled House. 

As always with the Biden Regime, the actual implementation of this executive order will go far beyond the stated purpose.  The effects will be far more onerous.  The end result of this executive order will in fact result in universal background checks.  

Like all federal gun control measures, background checks are unconstitutional.  They infringe on our right to bear arms.  There exists no provision in the Constitution granting the federal government the authority to conduct background checks on those wishing to purchase a gun. Progressives want to impose universal background checks because they will get to pick and choose who will be allowed to own guns. They get to dig real deep into the lives of everyone applying. They will discriminate against political enemies such as MAGA Republicans.

All executive orders that go beyond the members of the executive branch of the federal government are unconstitutional.  This one is no different.

Buried in the executive order is this deeply unconstitutional provision.

The order will also increase the use of “red flag laws,” which allow a judge to take away a firearm from someone based on the suspicion that they could use it to harm themselves or others. Biden will direct members of his Cabinet to partner with law enforcement, health care providers, educators and other community leaders to encourage the effective use of red flag laws in the states that have them.

Red flag laws violate the Due Process clauses of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments.

It is well past time for the Republican Party to grow a spine.  Far too often the Grand Old Party has stood on the sidelines while progressives strip away the right to bear arms from the American people.

My Facebook newsfeed was jam-packed with condemnation of Joe Biden’s Independence Hall diatribe.  The same holds true for all of the Conservative and Libertarian websites I visited that day.  I have never witnessed such outrage.  

To make sure all of the fury was justified, I read the full transcript of Biden’s loathsome speech.  This first section made my blood boil.

Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal. Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic.

Now, I want to be very clear, very clear up front. Not every Republican, not even the majority of Republicans, are MAGA Republicans. Not every Republican embraces their extreme ideology. I know, because I’ve been able to work with these mainstream Republicans.

But there’s no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans. And that is a threat to this country.

By the time I was finished with this next section I was also nauseated and heartsick.

And here, in my view, is what is true: MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election, and they’re working right now as I speak in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers to undermine democracy itself.

MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards, backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love. They promote authoritarian leaders, and they fanned the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country.

I have studied World War Two in great detail.  This infuriating diatribe was very much akin to Hitler’s Nuremburg Rally SpeechStalin and other socialist dictarors often made similar speeches before sending their secret police to round up political opponents and dissidents.  To me this diatribe is a warning sign that Joe Biden may be considering something similar here. 

Thankfully we have the Second Amendment here to discourage such tyrannical notions emanating from our elected officials.  Joe Biden has enough functioning brain cells to understand that this wisest of amendments is a major obstacle to such truly un-American moves.  That is why Progressives have been working for decades to abolish the Second Amendment.  Check out this statement Joe Biden made after arriving on Marine One.

So the idea of these high-caliber weapons is of — there’s simply no rational basis for it in terms of thinking about self-protection, hunting.  I mean, I just — and remember, the Constitution, the Second Amendment was never absolute.  You couldn’t buy a cannon when the Second Amendment was passed.  You couldn’t go out and purchase a lot of weapons. 

And those who — not many are saying it anymore, but there was a while there where people were saying that, you know, the Tree of Liberty is watered with the blood of patriots, and what we have to do is you have to be able to take on the government when they’re wrong.  Well, to do that, you need an F-15, you know?  Or you need an Abrams tank.

What I find most infuriating about that last quote is how our illegitimate president takes a huge metaphoric dump on our most important founding principles while using a bunch of historically inaccurate gibberish to trash the Second Amendment.

The following video clip from Biden’s press secretary leaves no doubt about the Biden Regime being a bunch of totalitarian collectivists.

Those of us who believe in individual liberty, and everything else the United States stands for, must never be the first to use violence.  The purpose of the Second Amendment is for We the People to defend ourselves against a tyrannical government.  We have not reached that level yet.  I pray that we never will.

Mitch McConnell is the poster child for everything that is wrong with the Republican Party. He is most definitely a Republican in Name Only, yet the Senate Republicans keep electing him to the top role in that legislative body.

I despise the Republican Party almost as much as I despise the Democrat Party, though for vastly different reasons.  I despise the Democrat Party because they are now indistinguishable from the socialist party that is destroying Venezuela.  I despise the Republican party because they constantly enable the Democrats’ destruction of the United States. 

As you can see from this article, What the Hell Is Mitch McConnell Doing? (, Mitch McConnell is enabling the Democrats’ latest attempt to eradicate the Second Amendment.

Well, it would seem the 60-vote watch regarding these bipartisan anti-gun talks could be over. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) signaled that he is a ‘yes’ vote on the bipartisan gun control package that’s being hashed out up on the Hill.  It includes funding for mental health and school security, but also provides funds to incentivize expanding red flag laws. The latter is not good news as the guardrails for overreach have not been set. It impacts veterans at disproportionate rates, and some might argue they’re unconstitutional on its face.  Wherever you stand, there’s also, there’s the whole principle aspect of the matter. Forget that we elect Republicans to be the defenders of Second Amendment rights, if you give Democrats an inch—they’re going to be looking to take 1000-mile chunks in the next round.

Before Mitch McConnell, and the rest of the 10 traitor Republicans, who are helping to draft this deeply flawed pile of excrement, vote on this garbage, they should read this article: There Are Many Potential Problems With The Bipartisan Gun Deal (

10 Republican senators have agreed to bribe states into participating in passing emergency risk-protection legislation that allows courts to take guns from those deemed a threat to themselves or others.

When carefully written, red flag laws may have merit, but prudence is rare. In states like California, Connecticut, and Maryland, authorities can confiscate weapons merely on the strength of an uncorroborated allegation by family members, coworkers, law enforcement officers, or others without any kind of genuine due process. Will Senate Republicans guarantee that funding for state laws is contingent on laws that have protections for basic due process rights, penalties for bringing frivolous or false charges against gun owners, and assurances that those who receive the proper mental health treatment get their weapons returned, because in many places a “temporary” petition means a lifetime ban? Seems unlikely.

Not that long ago, Democrats wanted to pass a bill that would have stripped anyone on terror watch and no-fly lists — some 40 percent of whom have nothing even tangentially to do with terrorism — of both their Fifth and Second Amendment rights. Republicans have no reason to trust their devotion to due process.

Mitch McConnell will prove to be a much bigger villain in this destruction of the Second Amendment if this passes becsuse he helped to bring this legislation into existence. McConnell Urges GOP to Work with Democrats on Gun Control Legislation (

Senate Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Thursday “encouraged” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) to work with Senate Democrats on gun control legislation in a reaction to the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas this week.

If this odious bill passes it will anger the base of the Republican Party, which is sick and tired of being betrayed by the spineless sycophants who make up the leadership of the Republican Party. 

On Memorial Day, Joe Biden made some very ominous statements, which were cloaked in his customary mistruths and utter gibberish.  These statements should send chills down the spines of supporter of the Second Amendment.  Once you fed the statements into a Joe Biden gibberish and lies decoder they translated into the message “we’re going to ban all guns including hand guns.”

From this quote you can see that Biden will be targeting the Democrat’s usual bugaboo ‘assault weapons.’

I know that it makes no sense to be able to purchase something that can fire up to 300 rounds.  I know it makes — and I know what happened when we had rational action before, back in — when the crime bill was — the law that got passed.  It did significantly cut down mass murders. 

And so there’s only one reason for something that can fire, you know, 100 shots.

The fraudulent claim about effects of the unconstitutional assault weapons ban are debunked here.

This next statement exploded across social media and conservative news websites because it is both ominous and entirely devoid of reality.

I mean — and I’ll just conclude with this: Look, when I first started doing hearings on the issue of what rational gun laws should be, it was during a period when I was a senator and the death rate was going up.  Not that many more people were being shot, but the death rate was up.  And when I think of — I’m not sure, I think it was (inaudible) hospital in New York — whatever the largest trauma hospital is. 

And I sat with a trauma doctor, and I asked him — I said, “What’s the difference?  Why are so many people…” — and not that many more people were being shot.  This is now 20 years ago, or 25 years.  I said, “Why are they dying?”  And they showed me x-rays.  He said, “A .22-caliber bullet will lodge in the lung, and we can probably get it out, may be able to get it, and save the life.  A 9mm bullet blows the lung out of the body.”

Joe Biden proved that he knows absolutely nothing about the Second Amendment and the rest of the Constitution when he made the following statement:

So the idea of these high-caliber weapons is of — there’s simply no rational basis for it in terms of thinking about self-protection, hunting.  I mean, I just — and remember, the Constitution, the Second Amendment was never absolute.  You couldn’t buy a cannon when the Second Amendment was passed.  You couldn’t go out and purchase a lot of weapons. 

And those who — not many are saying it anymore, but there was a while there where people were saying that, you know, the Tree of Liberty is watered with the blood of patriots, and what we have to do is you have to be able to take on the government when they’re wrong.  Well, to do that, you need an F-15, you know?  Or you need an Abrams tank.

Joe Biden has repeated the same mistruth about the First Amendment preventing Americans in early America from owning cannons often.  Each time he uttered it he has been fact checked.

In the second paragraph of that last quote, Joe Biden shows utter contempt for the founding principles of the United States.  He spits on the graves of every founding father of the United States.  Only a petulant tyrant would threaten American citizens with tanks and fighter aircraft for simply standing up for their rights.
