HR 5175 Selectively Silences American Opinion

Obama Moves to Silence Gun Groups and Other Political Opponents
-- Bill clears committee hurdle, going to the House floor soon

Gun Owners of America E-Mail Alert
8001 Forbes Place, Suite 102, Springfield, VA 22151
Phone: 703-321-8585 / FAX: 703-321-8408

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

Fresh from his efforts to seize government control of the health services sector (ObamaCare) and the financial markets ("finance reform"), Barack Obama has a new priority: silence his political opposition.

As satisfying as it was for Obama to seize control of one-sixth of the economy, he has had to suffer protest from the "little people" (like us). So he is pushing the Orwellian "DISCLOSE" bill (HR 5175) to make sure gun groups and other pro-freedom forces cannot mobilize their members in the upcoming elections.

When Obama says "disclose," what he really means is "disclose gun group membership lists"

Not surprisingly, these efforts to shut down free speech don't apply to Obama allies, like Democratic-leaning labor unions. They only apply to groups which are not reliable Obama allies, like Gun Owners of America.

But, for those groups whose free speech is targeted for Obama's wrath under this bill, the consequences are severe:

* Under Title II of the bill, GOA (and other groups, as well as many bloggers) who merely mention public officials within 60 days of an election could be required to file onerous disclosures -- potentially including their membership lists.

* Also under Title II, GOA could be required to spend as much as half of the time of a 30-second ad on government-written disclosures.

* In addition, Sections 201 through 203 would potentially put the government's snooping eyes on any American who voices a political opinion, despite the fact that the Supreme Court, in Buckley v. Valeo, declared that Americans have a right to voice their opinion to an unlimited extent, if unconnected with a political campaign.

Here's an idea: If Obama is so irritated at the Supreme Court's defense of political free speech by groups like GOA, why doesn't he apply his sleazy new rules to his political allies, as well?

ACTION: Please urge your congressman to vote against the anti-gun HR 5175. This bill has moved out of committee and has now been placed on the House calendar.

You can use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at to send a pre-written message to your Representative.

----- Pre-written letter -----

Dear Representative:

I urge you to oppose HR 5175, a bill that will deny the free speech rights of all Americans. Under Title II of this bill:

* Groups like Gun Owners of America (and other groups, as well as many bloggers) who merely mention public officials within 60 days of an election could be required to file onerous disclosures -- potentially including their membership lists -- even though the Supreme Court has previously ruled in NAACP v. Alabama that membership lists (like those of GOA's) are off limits to government control.

* Also, groups like GOA and the NRA could be required to spend as much as half of the time of a 30-second ad on government-written disclosures.

* In addition, Sections 201 through 203 would potentially put the government's snooping eyes on any American who voices a political opinion, despite the fact that the Supreme Court, in Buckley v. Valeo, declared that Americans have a right to voice their opinion to an unlimited extent, if unconnected with a political campaign.

Here's an idea: If Obama is so irritated at the Supreme Court's defense of political free speech by groups like GOA, why doesn't he apply the new rules in HR 5175 to his political allies (like the labor unions), as well?

Suffice it to say, if you care anything about the First or Second Amendments, you will vote against HR 5175. GOA will be scoring this vote on their rating of Congress.

Blasphemy and Christian Bashing Trending Up?

Is this a desperate attempt to increase ratings or are networks revealing their true master?

A article just revealed a new show that blasphemes our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The name is the show is JC. The show makes a mockery of our faith and our beloved creator.


This show does its best to be just as equally or even more reviling than the JC show on Comedy Central.

They are promoting the show on the likes of Facebook and other social networking sites with images like this. In the image, the character is wearing a T-shirt with “Satan Heart Me.”

Then of course on the various pages of its web site, they have a Devil’s Daily Affirmation. The one pictured below reads “Do evil every day, You may not change the world, but you’ll have more fun.”

The poster page displays posters with various sayings. This is another copious way to inundate impressionable minds with messages of pure evil. Some of the posters read. “Screw the Whales, Save Hell,” “It’s Cool to be Cruel,” “Live Evil,” and Be part of the Damnation.”

God’s word tells us “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;” (Mathew 5:44 KJV).

It is imperative that we pray for those who reject Christ and his teachings. It is also imperative for us to reject these types of programs and any advertisers who participate in the shows.

Just remember that as Christians, we need to show a godly love for those who hate us. Take a stand, but do so with the kindness that the Lord has shown to us all that have our faith rooted in Him.

“I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day “(John 12:46-48 KJV).

These types of shows should not distract us from the commission that God has given us and that is to continue to spread his word so that the unbelievers are saved from eternal damnation.


"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."(2 CORINTHIANS 3:17 KJV)

The New White House Chicago Style Politics

So much corruption, so little time.

Americans are seeing their liberties and freedoms vanish faster than Jimmy Hoffa. Yet, the Obama administration's "open and transparent government" is no where to be seen.

* Health Care reform otherwise known as healthcare control was written and passed despite the fact that the American people spoke loud and clear about it.

* Billions of taxpayer dollars to bailout automakers the terms hidden under a TARP away from public view passed without voter approval.

*Judge Sotomayor with a clear and present racial attitude towards "old white men" was confirmed into the supreme court.

* Elena Kagan is Obama's latest supreme court nominee and member of his cabinet. Of course she has no experience at any trials as a lawyer or judge. But hey, that doesn't matter to Obama's "You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours attitude."

* Sestak was offered a job to not run for office. last time I checked it was illegal to manipulate federal elections. Of course, both the Obama Administration and Sestak have clammed up about the issue.

* Andrew Romanoff, who is challenging Senator Michael Bennet, an Obama ally, in the Colorado Democratic primary, has stated that he was offered three administration posts as an alternative to his Senate campaign.

* We also have the BP Oil spill. BP will actually make millions over the "accident." Their goal is to continue to siphon oil from the broken well all the while We the Taxpayers fund the cleanup efforts and pay higher prices at the pump and at the grocery stores.

"Based on government estimates of the flow rate, the mangled well could produce oil valued at as much as $85 million over the next 60 days, until a relief well is complete and the well is capped permanently.

The people who own the deepwater site that's leased to BP — U.S. taxpayers — could see a more modest windfall. The Treasury could be due as much as $328,125 in royalties daily, or $19 million total over 60 days. Further, under its lease BP also must pay royalties on the oil lost in the spill, which would mean another $13.5 million.

McClatchy's calculation uses a government tally of 25,000 barrels flowing from the well each day and the 18.75 percent royalty rate applicable to oil from the BP well, and assumes that oil is selling at an average of $70 a barrel. Thursday's spot price hovered around $74.

The money that's due Uncle Sam and the added new revenue for BP from capturing the leaking oil raise many questions about the financial penalties that could be levied when something goes badly wrong with a deepwater oil well." Read more:

In November, we will be able to send many of the lawbreakers, err lawmakers back to their hometowns with their heads held in shame for their misdeeds and in 2012, we can send the rest home.

* False unemployment rates and false information. It's a good thing Obama wasn't crafted from an old cobbler, his nose would be stretched across the country by now.

What will history have to say about the Obama administration? You tell me.

Is Congress regulating its way to the next crisis?

Quote of the Day: "It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what it will be tomorrow." -- James Madison (1751-1836), Father of the Constitution, 4th US President, Source: "Federalist" # 62

Politicians have a standard cure for every problem -- REGULATION. But what happens when there are so many regulations that not even the regulators can know them all, or understand what their consequences are? A case in point . . .

Widespread reliance on credit rating agencies, and a lack of knowledge about how those agencies were regulated, were major contributors to the 2008 financial meltdown.

Just this one example (explained in our sample letter below) is enough reason to reject the so-called financial reform bills being put forward by Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. Complicated regulations helped cause the 2008 mess, and they are NO part of the solution.

If you agree, please send Congress a letter telling them so.

You may borrow from or copy from this sample letter . . .

Wall Street is already the most regulated sector of the economy. Too many regulations means that even the regulators don't know them all. Jeffrey Friedman of the Cato Institute shows how this helped cause the 2008 financial meltdown.

It appears that both the banks and the Federal Reserve were unaware that a 1975 SEC rule turned S&P, Moody's, and Fitch into a legally protected oligopoly, protecting them from competition from other rating agencies!

* Commercial banks believed in the soundness of the ratings from these agencies
* Other federal regulators wrongly believed S&P, Moody's, and Fitch were subject to "market discipline"
* But because these agencies were actually protected from competition, they got sloppy, and provided unreliable ratings
* This caused many financial institutions to purchase bad mortgage pools

In other words . . .

Regulators were unaware of the regulations! So how will MORE regulations help?

New regulations constantly address "the unintended consequences of previous regulations." They never really fix anything.

Instead of over-regulating the economy, strike at the root with real reform . . .

* End subsidies and bailouts -- make companies feel the consequences of their actions
* Stop creating monopolies, as you did with the credit rating companies

More regulations cause chaos, confusion, and catastrophe. Freer markets promote caution, transparency, and long-term growth. Therefore, I want you to oppose the Frank-Dodd financial reform bill.

Will Legislators Continue to Ignore We the People?

One would think after seeing the spaniking incmumbents are receiving during the early primaries that legislators would stop legislating and start representing. But it seems that they are going to ignore the people until they are voted out.

Legislators think a national id card will stoip illegal immigrants from illegally entering our country. That is laughable at best. National id cards are a bigger risk to national security than not having one.

Putting all of our senstive information into one hackable database is just asking for trouble. While many states havbe opted out of the Real ID National ID scheme, others like NC and Deleware are going forward with it and ignoring all the dangers of haveing such a system.

Legislators are also considering Immigration Reform. Now reform means amnesty. More than 80% of Americans do not want amnesty for those who have entered our country illegally.

States like AZ have to take it upon themselves to make it illegal to be in the state illegally. They have the right to do so under the tenth amendment.

Lets face it, there are some simple solutions to control the flow of illegal immigrants into this country.

* Secure our borders - We need more than 1200 additional troops to stop the crossing
* Enforce current immigration laws
* Jail and fine employers of illegal aliens
* Cut off the social programs for illegals

These simple things will help stop the flow of those who want to enter our nation illegally, but legislators want to ignore common sense approaches and try to use the same argument they did in the last amnesty, "We cant round them up and deport them all."

Of course not, all we need to do is do more enforcement and remove the incentives, ie free health care, food stamps, and employment.

Be sure to remind your elected leaders that you will not forget come election day.

Should People be Allowed to Film/Record Police?

Apparantly in the State of Maryland it is illegal to videotape the police or anyone in public without their consent.

It seems that the legislators in Maryland had a good idea, prevent people from being videotaped without their permission.

This would make it easier to convict the freaks who like to take images of people in ways they dont like.

However it seems they left out the fact that Public officials and employees do not have the expectation of privacy.

While the guy acted like a buffoon and was driving like an idiot, he deservingly received his ticket, but tapping a police officer can benefit both officer and the person be subjected to any type of confrontation with an officer.

One has to wonder if the legislators made a mistake when creating this law or if they purposely made it so broad as a means to keep their faces off the likes of youtube and the local news when they are seen doing something wrong or illegal.

If the police can rightfully videotape criminals then the people should have the right to videotape the authorities and public officials, otherwise they have no incentives to behave accordingly because after all any video made without their consent could be confiscated before it is made public.

The people of Maryland should stand up and tell their legislators that this legislation needs to change.

Joe Sestak Needs to Come Clean

Joe Sestak has admitted that the White House has offered him a job to stay out of the Senatorial primary, but neither he nor the White House will come clean with the details.

The people of PA and the US have the right to know about the secretive deals coming out of the Obama administration. We want to know what our representatives were promised when they supported obamacare and the bailouts.

I am sure that this tactic isn't new, but We the people expect to be represented by our legislators and not have them sellout to the highest bidder for them to increase their personal gain.

Rest assured Americans do not care about the party affiliation, what they do care about is the integrity of our legislature.

Those in DC both Democrats and Republicans are being sent home as a result of these types of deals and as a result or simply ignoring the will of the people.

The primaries are just the beginning of the change that is reshaping our political culture. The November elections will bring forth even further change. Those members of the Senate who are not up for re-0election until 2012 and have ignored our voices, should start looking for new employment now.

Joe Sestak if you have been paying attention and you want to win the senatorial seat should come clean now or suffer the consequences at the polls.

Byrdie Watch 2010 - What Happened to Senator Byrd?

The Wall Street Reform Bill vote on Thursday was missing one of the most auspicious members of the Senate. Sources in Washington have revealed that absent from the vote was Senator Robert Byrd.

“We thought maybe someone forgot to bring him out from the cloak room before the vote,” commented one White House reporter.

However, after an exhaustive search of the Congressional grounds most concluded that Byrd had decided to start his weekend a bit early.

We caught up with him at the villa he rents in Mexico. “I just couldn’t sit through another one of those votes,” Byrd said as he sipped on a Margarita. “Besides these weekends are what has kept me going for the past fifty year’s in Congress.”

H.R. 4173 (Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009 )easily passed the Senate without Senator Byrd's or Senator Arlen Specter.

Republican Senators Brown (R-MA), Grassley (R-IA)& Snowe (R-ME), hopeful not to be thrown by the wayside voted to support the Legislation that will do nothing to prevent future bailouts of financial institutions, but only increases federal control.

Some are speculating that Senator Specter still upset that his party threw him out on his backside during the Senatorial primaries, may have jumped on the same plane with Senator Bryd. So far, we have yet to confirm that report.

Upon further investigation we have learned that a law was quietly passed in 1999 allowing Byrd to receive vacations every weekend for the rest of his life, paid for by our taxpayer dollars. Perhaps the secret to Byrd’s longevity in Congress is due to something special in the water here. Now only one question remains, where will Byrdie spend Memorial Day Weekend?

Help Wanted Incumbents Need Not Apply

The people are specking and the incumbents are falling. Well actully they fell when they stopped listening to the people who voted them in and only heard those special interest groups with the deep pockets whispering sweet nothings and the promises of a lifetime seat.

Clearly the incumbents fell for it hook line and sinker. They decided to piss on the Constitution and trample the rights of American people and now the people are speaking up with their ballots.

"Enough already" has been the mantra of people on both sides of the seat. The constitutionalists hand Libertarians have been shouting this to deaf ears long before the bailouts and the HCR control bill, but more Americans are waking up.

The American people do not care how long you have been in office and what seniority you have in the Senate or House, if you ignored them, they are voting you out and hiring those who will pay attention.

It looks like America's political face is about to get an extreme makeover and it will not be just Republicans or just Democrats controlling the legislator. Nope Americans are going to see candidates who are liberty minded individuals who want less government intrusion and more accountability.

The time is now.

Can you see the government's hidden role in the BP oil spill?

Quote of the Day: "Government's view of the economy can be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it." -- Ronald Reagan (paraphrased)

The politicians meddle with everything. For example, when it comes to energy production there are . . .

* Direct subsidies
* Tax breaks and tax penalties
* Liability limits, but also potential fines if you don't do things just right

What a meddling muddle! This is why . . .

It's fair to say that the federal government played a hidden role in the BP oil spill. To learn more read the sample letter to Congress below.

We think it would be better . . .

* For oil companies to pay all the costs and carry all the potential risks of each drilling project
* To have all of these costs and risks reflected in the prices consumers pay, rather than hidden in legislation and regulations

In other words, there should be . . .

* No subsidies or special tax breaks
* No liability limits
* No tax-funded bailouts, or government run clean-up funds
* And regulations should be provided by insurance companies who are putting their own money at risk

If, after reading the sample letter to Congress below, you agree with us that this approach would better protect both the environment and the taxpayer, then please send Congress a letter telling them that. You can use's No Bailouts campaign to send your letter.

You may borrow from or copy this sample letter . . .

The BP oil spill is another example of the destructive nature of government guarantees and bailouts.

I know that BP has agreed to pay more of the clean-up costs, beyond the government-provided liability cap. I also know that they've been threatened by Congress and the Administration if they don't. But this is hypocritical, because Congress created the liability cap and the clean up fund in the first place! In 1990, Congress passed a law that . . .

* capped oil company liability for spills at $75 million
* set up a fund, paid for by the oil companies, to pay for the rest of the clean-up

In effect, this is a government-run oil spill insurance program, but without the risk management incentives provided by real insurance companies. This whole scheme was a terrible idea from the start, and has been used to bail out companies that cause oil spills a whopping 51 times!
Because of the liability cap, BP may have been less cautious than it would have been if its own money had been at risk.

In addition, a lack of regulation has been blamed for the BP spill. But government regulators . . .

* don't have the profit and loss incentive that private insurance companies do; they don't go out of business for their mistakes
* tend to impose one-size-fits all rules that don't work as well as the site-specific requirements that insurance companies impose
* and often act as partners in the industry they regulate, not as watchdogs

But imagine if we had a free market in energy . . .

* Oil companies would be liable for ALL the damage they cause
* And this would compel them to seek liability insurance in the private market

In turn, insurance companies would . . .

* demand the strictest standards to prevent accidents and spills because, unlike government regulators, they would be financially responsible for any mishaps
* and, if the risks are too great, they would deny coverage

If off-shore drilling is too risky, that means no one in a free market will invest in it, and entrepreneurs would then have a huge incentive to develop less-risky energy alternatives. This would be a good thing! This is what you politicians claim to want!

This means that a true free market in energy would actually reduce accidents and CREATE A CLEANER ENVIRONMENT.

I therefore demand that you put an end to government meddling in energy production.

1) Instead of raising the liability cap for oil spills, remove all government liability caps on all forms of energy production
2) Instead of inefficient and counter-productive government regulations, allow private insurance to set requirements for off-shore oil drilling and other forms of energy production, such as nuclear, which is also currently protected by government liability limits
3) Get rid of all subsidies, tax breaks, and tax penalties so that we can benefit from free and fair competition among all energy producers

Once these three market-based policies are in place, energy companies will bear the true capital expense of their projects -- instead of the taxpayers. Risky and dangerous projects will flop. But profitable projects should be allowed to proceed -- including drilling for oil.
