The Coming Showdown

Anyone who watches the news can clearly see what is coming - not just in America, but in the world. The U.S. just represents the most glaring and acute example. 

The fight is really about freedom vs control. Unfortunately control will win. We know this from the prophetic scriptures. I personally believe the removal of the restrainer will occur first mainly because of the coming showdown which is described in the articles below (which are just a very small subset of what is in circulation).

We know from biblical prophecy that the entire world will be ruled in a totalitarianism manner by the antichrist and the false prophet - and if this is to be successful, citizens of the world must be disarmed. This has been successful in most of the world, but it would seem inevitable in the U.S. as well during or before the Tribulation. 

If the gathering up doesn't happen soon, this is going to get ugly - very ugly. Both sides of this issue are seemingly immovable. And both sides are facing a battle which from all accounts could become violent and extreme. 

A red line is about to be crossed - and it is my opinion that a large portion of American citizens will be unwilling to let the constitution be overrun as we seem to be seeing. 

As they say "this is getting real". 

Just look at today's news on the topic:

The first comes from Cold Fury - a site I frequent. I can't normally post from this site due to the profanity (disclaimer, I know Mike personally - at least in the past, and he is one of the brightest, most articulate people I have known and I tend to agree with his views). The article below consolidates several commentaries which are highly germane to the topic at hand:

...the dirty end of the confiscation job will fall upon the shoulders of sworn law enforcement officers and gold-badged federal law enforcement agents. The LEOs and the FLEAs. That’s you, Mr. Security Agent.
We really don’t want a problem with you, believe me. And there is no reason for us to have a problem, because we both can read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and neither of us requires a team of black-robed mystics to translate its plain English into Newspeak for improved comprehension. You and I both understand what “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” means, without requiring five out of nine politically appointed Supremes to tell us that it does not mean what it very plainly states in black and white.
Now, as long as Mr. Security Agent remembers that he swore the same oath that millions of Americans swore, to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, he will certainly not permit himself to take part in gun confiscation raids. But if he does, well, let’s be frank: tens of millions of Americans would then consider him to be the very domestic enemy that they swore to defend the Constitution against.
But Mr. Bracken—I can hear it now—this is the United States of America! Abuses like the ones you hypothesize simply cannot happen here. Gun registration does not always lead to confiscation, much less to extermination. We are not Germany or Russia or any of those other countries you mentioned. This is the 21st Century. America is different, and it can’t happen here. You must lay your irrational fears aside and place your trust in your government. It cannot, it will not, ever turn in the dark and tyrannical direction that you imagine.
Oh, really? Google “wrong-address SWAT raids” and read any of the dozens of articles you will find. We should trust the government not to abuse us even further, once we are disarmed and helpless to resist them? Thanks, but I don’t think so.
The yellow warning line will be crossed with national gun registration laws, including laws forbidding private gun sales without government permission. When that law passes, millions of Americans will feel that they have been pushed directly to the edge of the abyss above the mass graves of history. Defenders of the Second Amendment know what happened in Turkey, the USSR, Germany, China, and other nations that fell under totalitarian rule: in every case a necessary preliminary step on the road to genocide was national gun registration, followed by confiscation. The Jewish survivors of the Nazi Holocaust say, “Never again!” And so do we.

Preparations for a showdown:

And now it has just gotten far worse.
Thanks to outrageous Sandy Hook fear mongering by the mainstream media and political operatives like Feinstein, Obama, Cuomo and others, the American people have been rushing out to buy up every bullet, every rifle, every handgun and very nearly every gun-related product in the country. This is all because people like Biden, Obama and Feinstein are openly declaring war on the Second Amendment and threatening to outlaw or restrict firearms, magazines and ammunition.
“Channel 2 Action News has learned local police departments cannot get their hands on the ammunition they need,” reports WSBTV in Atlanta.
WSBTV continues:
“There’s been more demand for ammunition than there’s ever been,” reports Jay Wallace, owner of Smyrna Police Distributors in Cobb County. Wallace is now worried some departments could have to wait up to a year for factories to ship certain kinds of rounds in bulk. Leaders with most [police] departments … said they’re prepared to handle short shortages, but not long-term. “We’re going be starting to get very concerned at the six-month level if that’s all we have in stock, because then we have to start planning and rationing.
Rationing? Yep. It’s here already, and the global debt collapse hasn’t even begun yet!

As the Obama administration openly vows to use unconstitutional “executive orders” to further infringe on the right to keep and bear arms, gun rights activists, members of the law enforcement communitymilitary personnel and others are pledging to resist. Everything from an armed uprising and nationwide civil disobedience to legal means of resistance like the courts and nullification is being openly discussed online and even in the establishment media.   

Appearing on CNN, Gun Owners of America chief Larry Pratt (pictured) said assaults on the Second Amendment imposed unilaterally by a lawless president would call the legitimacy of the federal government into question. Noting that Obama has already been ruling by decree in realms where he “has no authority” and that Biden is openly discussing “executive action” to deal with firearms, the no-compromise gun rights activist said any such unconstitutional presidential decrees infringing on the Second Amendment would have dire implications. 

"That, I think, changes the game and throws into question the legitimacy of the federal government," Pratt told rabid anti-gun CNN host Piers Morgan, a Brit who has come under fire in recent weeks for his oftentimes disrespectful and hostile attitude toward defenders of the Second Amendment. "I would advise Mr. Obama to consider what happened to [King] George the third when he was doing similar things against the American colonists."

Meanwhile, former Congressman and GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul, who has millions of ardent supporters across America, suggested to radio host Alex Jones that “executive orders” purporting to ban guns may well spark a second American revolution. Jones himself made similar remarks in a heated interview this week on CNN as well, saying an assault on gun rights would lead to another revolution, drawing praise from his legions of followers but controversy in some conservative and libertarian circles.  

"We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment.  While claiming that no policy proposals would be “prejudged,” this Task Force spent most of its time on proposed restrictions on lawful firearms owners - honest, taxpaying, hardworking Americans.  It is unfortunate that this Administration continues to insist on pushing failed solutions to our nation's most pressing problems.  We will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and madmen.  Instead, we will now take our commitment and meaningful contributions to members of congress of both parties who are interested in having an honest conversation about what works - and what does not."

(I don't see this anywhere in the 2nd amendment...)

Obama vowed last month “whatever power this office holds” to prevent future mass shootings.
After meeting with gun safety groups Wednesday, Biden said the president could take “executive action” to crack down on guns. Biden was set to meet with National Rifle Association representatives later on Thursday.

And of course we can expect the usual hypocrisy:

President Barack Obama signed a bill into law on Thursday guaranteeing himself Secret Service protection for the rest of his life.
White House press secretary Jay Carney said Obama signed the “Former Presidents Protection Act of 2012” on Thursday. The law affects Obama, former President George W. Bush and future presidents, who under current law would only be protected for 10 years after leaving office.
And do you think those Secret Service agents will be carrying guns? Of course not, stupid. They’ll fend off attackers with disapproving glances and subtle putdowns about their footwear.
Now stop yammering about your “rights.” We’re not interested in your Second Amenity or whatever it’s called. Just shut up.

We could also be seeing a state vs federal showdown:

Local radio station KTWO reports that lawmakers in Wyoming have proposed a "Firearms Protection Act" that provides a state-level annulment of any ban against semi-automatics or magazines that hold 20 or 30 rounds or more. 
If the measure passes, it would mean that anyone--even federal agents-who try to enforce a ban within the state borders could be charged with a felony.
Is this the wave of the future for "red" states concerned about Obama's strong anti-gun intentions?
It is too early to tell. But it is worth noting that Montana lawmakers began pushing for the same kind of legislation as soon as conservatives took control of that state's legislature in 2010. 

More control coming (more 'road paving' for the coming totalitarianism):

According to the Electronic Freedom Frontier, a group that advocates for privacy rights in the digital age, "In the amount of time it takes to get lunch, the government can now collect your DNA and extract a profile that identifies you and your family members" using a device called a Rapid DNA Analyzer, which can "process DNA in 90 minutes or less."

 If you're not doing anything wrong, then you've got nothing to worry about, right?

That seems to be the pervasive logic of an increasing number of government officials and agencies that have forgotten the uniquely American legal principle of being presumed innocent until proven guilty. How else to explain the acceptance and widespread employment of technology that gathers potential evidence on everyoneindiscriminately, whether they've been suspected of creating a crime or not?

The fact is, the potential for abuse with a machine like this is endless. Such technology merely feeds into the tyrant's mentality that, "in the name of public safety," you are, by definition, a rebel and a threat if you don't automatically comply, hence the mindset, "You must be hiding something."

It's as if the Fourth Amendment's privacy protections have never existed.

The President of the United States is publicly threatening to sign an Executive Order restricting civilian access to semi-automatic weapons.
It is no historical accident that this country's most serious Constitution crisis since Ft. Sumter revolves around civilian possession of small arms. Remember Paul Revere? His midnight ride was to warn the countryside that ,"The Regulars [British] were coming out."  The Redcoats, under Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith, were "coming  out" of  Boston and marching toward Concord to seize "military stores."  When they reached Concord, the Regulars went door to door looking for, and confiscating, guns and gunpowder.
An armed citizenry has always checked tyranny and the dictator's lust for authority. Conversely, tyranny always hungers to disarm its citizens as soon as it assumes unbridled power. These are the immutable laws of empires and tyrants. If America begins to walk the path of further gun control, history teaches us in exquisite detail that we will not survive as a constitutional republic.
As this constitutional crisis unfolds, millions of citizens are made slack-jawed by the Obama's Administrations rabid attacks on the 2nd and 5th Amendments and Article 1, Section 1 of the Constitution.  It will be illuminating to see what  key institutions of American society recognize the enormity and the precarious nature of our situation.
Are our colleges and universities so politically indoctrinated that they fail to see the tyranny of disarming citizens?  Did the deadly experience of gun free zones on the Virginia Tech shooting go unheeded?
What about Wall Street? Can these financiers really believe that their political contributions  will protect them from a rapacious government? Sorry guys, all those millions of dollars will only mean that you will be eaten last. If a government can confiscate guns then all private property is at risk.
What  do our military officers and enlisted men think of this constitutional crisis ?  Our West Point and Annapolis grads are bright, independent thinkers. As officers they took a solemn oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. We know as serving military officers they cannot publicly comment on what they are thinking. But how many senior grade officers are thinking seriously  about their oath to the Constitution, and mistrusting  the motives and actions of their Commander-in- Chief?
Finally, we come to the most egregious breakdown of any American social institution, our national media.  It is inexcusable, contemptuous and willfully arrogant that the MSM refuses to recognize this constitutional crisis as a crisis.  This is not the usual President vs. Congress legislative dust-up. This  malevolent administration, as promised by Obama, is attempting to fundamentally change the relationship of the government to its citizens. And the media treats its biased, one-sided gun control "conversation" as just another 30-second sound bite. The MSM, as America's most visible social institution, has utterly failed to bring the enormity and danger  of gun control to the attention of the public. They refuse to link gun control to the incredible murder rates in Chicago. They refuse to acknowledge this nation's growing governmental tyranny, spearheaded first by Obamacare and now by gun control.
We are in the midst of a constitutional crisis, unseen since the Civil War. The 2nd Amendment was written to protect the individual citizen from the abusive powers of a tyrannical government. Freedom to hunt and personal self-defense are additional benefits to our country. With the erosion of civilian ownership of firearms, citizens will increasingly become slaves to the government.

Remember the discussion on Revelation 17 and the 'Woman On The Beast'?

The "Europa" series, portraying the goddess on new security holograms and watermarks, will be phased in across the eurozone's 17 member countries over several years, starting with a new five-euro note in May.
The image of Europa to be used on euro notes is taken from 2000-year old vase in the Louvre Museum in Paris. The new notes will circulate in parallel with old ones as legal tender and the ECB has not yet set a termination date for the first series.
The ancient Greek goddess will become the face of the euro at a time when soaring unemployment has reached a record high and uncertainty over the single currency's future continues.

Pestilence in the News:


 Iranian authorities have recently assigned the case of imprisoned American-Iranian Pastor Saeed Abedini to a Tehran judge sanctioned by the European Union for human rights violations.
Jordan Sekulow, the executive director of the Washington-based American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) wroteThe Jerusalem Post by email on Thursday saying, “This development underscores our growing concern for Pastor Saeed. In a country that’s hostile to human rights and religious freedom, the news that Pastor Saeed’s case has now been handed over to one of Iran’s most notorious judges is deeply troubling. In a real sense, Pastor Saeed is an American abandoned in Iran.”

This one sent shivers down my back, real shivers.

A few thoughts and observations....this country has the largest standing army of irregulars in the world, over 30 million. Many combat vets....and very, well equipped.

This army is equipped with capabilities even the best army and domestic law enforcement is not equipped with...the means to bring down a deer with one shot at 200-300 yards.

These things are not assault rifles, they are hunting pieces....but the fact remains, the military and police are equipped for high firepower rates at short ranges. The civilian forces are equipped for low rates of fire at very, very long ranges.

I may be in for a surprise here....but I don't think this civilian army of irregulars is going to stand by for the fight this Adm is intentionally picking. I suspect most of this domestic irregular army has taken that oath spoken of in the main post. All of our military and civilian law enforcement had done likewise. Many have risked their lives for it more than once already. They understand that oath, and for many its more than an oath, its a blood oath...theirs and their buddies.

I suspect that TPTB know exactly the hornets next they are getting ready to poke. I suspect they already have the plans on how to deal with it. Now, that is what scares the pants off me.

We are more divided than we were just prior to the Civil War. The Low Information/Kool Aid/GimmieGimmie and power/control drone crowd on one side and the rest on the other.

Many realize that this is the one step so completely black and white unconstitutional that if it is let to pass uncontested, the rest is a vary fast downhill slide.

If the Adm persist, this is gonna get real ugly and real fast.

Well, from my knothole to the world anyway.

Hey Scott , or anyone who has done more research on evil billionaire George Soros . I'm not a huge Glen Beck fan but i do have a respect for him . I remember the first episode that captivated me was when he did the special on George Soros (which lead to his release from Fox) . That was maybe 2 1/2 years ago . Do you remember his theory of top down bottom up . Funding the elites and funding the future protesters/resistanc at the same time ? Pretty much to divide and conquer nations and of course make billions of dollars while doing so ? Also Soros has stated that America needs to be eliminated from the equation as a superpower in order for the NWO to achieve its goal .Well since this time has passed doesn't it feel exactly like this is whats happening in America ? Do you guys think we could be falling into this trap ? We might be getting suckered and not even know it ?

We're as divided as we can get .

Right wing news- Left wing news
Pro-gun - anti-gun
Pro-abortion - anti abortion
Pro-gay marriage- anti gay marriage
etc etc etc

Peace Nate

Nice post Caver. I was listening to Glen Beck yesterday on my drive to Charleston WV. (love my sirus radio) He made the point that the term assault rifle is a misnomer... an intentional derogatory term no doubt coming from the left. I suppose the real differentiation should be automatic weapon/machine gun.

The kid in the Newtown shooting did not own his guns nor were they "assault"/automatic weapons.

Anyone know what Ted Nuggent is saying about all this? I never much cared for his music but I love his passion for all things hunting and the US constitution. He is not a guy they want to mess with. lol

I wish to comment on the Iranian- American pastor and his situation. The same things are happening here ib the land of the free (LOL Already Christian chaplains in the military have been court-martialed, forced out of the US military, been stripped of their military pensions, and even had their health benefits taken away -- after serving their country in far-away lands for many years. What "crime" did these Christians chaplains commit? They prayed with soldiers and in public " In Jesus' Name." Many have been intimidated into remaining silent about their plight for fear of being "dishonorably" discharged from the military all together. Some have even "gone underground" in a desperate effort to avoid punishment. On another note, earlier today I was reading Psalm 11. I found it very appropriate for today's situation.

Caver said...

So true WV. What is available out there is not an assault weapon. They require but the flip of a switch and they are full machine gun mode.

What is out there is automatic weapons.....of military caliber and projectile type.

What the military and domestic enforcement does not have are very sophisticated and powerful scopes on virtually each and every one of them....and most zeroed in for long ranges.

The government also owns the air waves and MOST communication means.
