Number 714, March 31, 2013
After sinking billions of dollars into “law-enforcement”
over the decades, what finally brought the violent crime
rate down—in double digits—was private gun ownership.


We have had extremely disturbing news from World Net Daily about Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, a low, contemptible lying snake of a man, unworthy of the office he occupies, a bitter enemy of freedom with utterly no regard for the solemn oath that he swore or for the history of individual liberty and self-determination behind it.

The last bastion of Tammany Hall, Denver has always exuded an air of criminality in high places, unequalled by any municipality except, perhaps, New York or Chicago. Nothing changed when Hickenlooper was mayor.

WND says Hickenlooper is now preparing to force through, on top of recent unconstitutional gun legislation that he pushed onto the books, a measure that would grant to the United States Secret Service _carte blanche_ to enter Colorado counties, despite sheriffs who have refused to enforce his gun laws, and brutalize and kidnap anyone they think might be violating new Presidential decrees intended to disarm the population.

This possibility is fraught with danger. We have long believed Hickenlooper's master in the White House is attempting to incite a violent response, in order to foment a civil uprising he can suppress with massive numbers of troops and weaponry, a treasonous crime for which everybody involved must eventually be arrested, tried, and convicted.

In the meantime, with the next election two years away, the only counter-measure that makes sense is to gather information about the Democratic members of the Colorado House and Senate. Democrats, in our long political experience, have a greater tendency toward every kind of crime and corruption than Republicans. (For the most part, the latter tend to be a bit stupid and cowardly, but less criminally- inclined, a problem to be dealt with later, when the current threat is ended.)

It must be added that a contemptible handful of Republicans are participating in this crime against the people and the Constitution. The bill was sponsored in the Senate by Republican, Steve King, and supported by four other Republicans, Balmer, Crowder, Grantham, and Roberts. A House Republican, Gerou is also acting as Hickenlooper's accomplice. What the bloody hell can they be thinking? They must be accorded exactly the same treatment as we prescribe here for the Democrats.

Individuals who wish to remain free in every precinct, district, and county of the state—or anyplace else in the world, for that matter—must tell us anything and everything they know about these traitors who falsely claim to represent them. We will collect this information, be it about embezzlement, infidelity, or murder, take time-proven steps tp verify and corroborate it, and then release it to the public via websites and social media which will be mirrored, for safety's sake, in several places within the state, outside the state, and perhaps overseas as well. Those we oppose are utterly ruthless and barbaric.

Everything we do will be open and above-board, in full compliance with the law. We will recommend nothing outside of due process. We will expect resignations, retirements, arrests, indictments, sudden moves out of state and out of country, perhaps even suicides, until Hickenlooper's Capitol Hill snake-pit is scourged clean and he finds himself powerless—and of no further use to the Usurper he slavishly obeys.

If you want freedom, now is the time to act. We will ask attorneys and professional investigators to assist us, as well. But there is no time to spare. The future, of both Colorado and America, is in your hands.

Letters to the Editor
from Dave Pirtle, L. Neil Smith, Cheaper Than Dirt!, Neale Osborn

by L. Neil Smith
It takes a particular kind of individual to be an actor. I first became aware of this phenomenon in high school, when one of the English teachers cast and directed the only play I've ever been in (although I'd already had lots of stage experience as a musician), Anastasia.

The Future is Better than We Think
by Ian Titter
L Neil Smith's article "Separating Medicine and State" opposes the whole idea of 'Obamacare' as an example of the creeping Socialist agenda of our self-appointed 'Nomenclatura'. I won't say he's wrong. I will say that I worry less than he does.

What Didn't He Say?

In his article "Musings on Freedom" in TLE #713, Neale Osborn has me thoroughly confused.

NRA Treachery

Fellow Gun Owners, Aaron Zelman, late Founder and first Executive Director of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, referred to the National Rifle Association as "the world's oldest and largest gun control organization".

Neale's Weekly Gun Rant, Volume 3
by Neale Osborn
I'd like to open this with two personal notes- I have received several responses to my request for info on Norinco's "Polytech" line of semi-auto M14s (here in America we call'em M1As) They are popular in Canada, and Canadian gun blogs spend a lot of time on these fairly well-made weapons, and apart from some occasional soft parts that need changing (hammers and sears seem to be common) with the better made American parts, I've received no real complaints. Thanks to those who responded. Anybody who needs similar responses, feel free to contact me via a Contact the Author on NewsVine or via the means provided on TLE and other places I put the rant.

I've been going crazy trying to get Kubuntu to display 1920 x 1080 on my wide-screen LCD monitor. It don't want to do it. For about a week there I was stuck at 640 x 480. Crazy.

Anyway, welcome to issue number 714. We've been doing this since October 1995. Golly!
