The Second Amendment Means What It Says

Dr. Robert Owens Chronicles the History of the Future

In the words of AWR Hawkins in Breitbart “When the Second Amendment was ratified in 1791 the phrase, ‘well-regulated militia,’ underlined the importance of the words, ‘shall not be infringed.’”

The Second Amendment says, “A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

It must be remembered that the shot heard round the world which ignited the Revolution was fought by local militias at Lexington and Concord standing strong against the regular army troops of the greatest empire in the world.  Without those militias and the privately held guns that made them possible there would have been no Revolution.  Because without those militias and the privately held guns that made them possible the colonists would have had no means to resist the tyranny of the king.

To rightly understand the meaning of the…

So What Do I Think about the “Crash” in Stocks? by Wolf Richter

Ha ha I love your last line

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

So far, despite the pyrotechnics, markets have not crashed. From Wolf Richter at wolfstreet.com:

A lot more will have to happen before this turns into a crash; and markets are not there yet.

With all this wailing in the media about stocks, you’d think there’s at least some blood in the streets. But no. Not a drop.

The Dow fell 4.6% today to 24,345. This 1,175-point drop, as it was endlessly repeated, was the biggest point-drop in history – but irrelevant given how relentlessly inflated the industrial average had become. The percentage drop today, combined with the drops of last week, took the Dow down just 8.5% from its all-time high on January 26.

For the year, the Dow is down merely 1.5%. I mean, what horror. The last time this sort of debacle happened was way back in ancient history of January and early February 2016.

The Dow is…

Now we know why the FBI tried so hard to block release of the House Intelligence Committee memo. And why Democrats and the media want to change the subject to Republican motivations. The four-page memo released Friday reports disturbing facts about how the FBI and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court appear to have been used to influence the 2016 election and its aftermath.

The White House declassified the memo Friday, and you don’t have to be a civil libertarian to be shocked by the details. The memo confirms that the FBI and Justice Department on Oct. 21…

Bad People Lied to a Kangaroo Court, by Robert Gore

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

The bigger issue is FISA’s evisceration of the Fourth Amendment.

Due to the sensitive nature of foreign intelligence activity, FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] submissions (including renewals) before the FISC [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court] are classified. As such, the public’s confidence in the integrity of the FISA process depends on the court’s ability to hold the government to the highest standard—particularly as it relates to surveillance of American citizens. However, the FISC’s rigor in protecting the rights of Americans, which is reinforced by 90-day renewals of surveillance orders, is necessarily dependent on the government’s production to the court of all material and relevant facts. This should include information potentially favorable to the target of the FISA application that is known by the government. In the case of Carter Page, the government had at least four independent opportunities before the FISC to accurately provide an accounting of the relevant facts. However…

Two Elephants In The Room That The GOP Has Completely Forgotten, by David Stockman

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

The elephant party is ignoring two elephants in the room: the central bank’s policies and debt. From David Stockman at davidstockmanscontracorner.com:

The US economy is threatened by two giant problems which cause all others to pale into insignificance. We are referring to a rogue central bank that has become an absolute enemy of capitalist prosperity and a fiscal doomsday machine that is hostage to the ceaseless budgetary demands of the Warfare State, the Welfare State and the Baby Boom’s demographic imperatives.

Needless to say, both ends of the Acela Corridor are completely oblivious to these twin menaces. Indeed, they are the proverbial elephants in the room, thereby giving rise to a considerable irony: To wit, the GOP party of the elephant, which is supposed to be the palladium of financial rectitude in American politics, has forgotten about them completely.

For instance, in his triumphalist SOTU, the Donald didn’t utter so much as a single syllable about the Fed…
