We shall start this with a most excellent quote on the Constitution and our government.

Quote of the day—Standing Wolf
The Constitution is a restraining order against the federal government. I'm not going to say a word about the effectiveness of restraining orders against criminals.

Need I say more? Thanks to Paul Koning for the [LINK].

Joining our illustrious Idiot-In-Chief (campaigning in all 57 states) and our vice president (who believes the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor, the Constitution is 100 years old, and that firing a shotgun through a door is the proper way to fight crime) in their encyclopedic knowledge of American history, Sheila Jackson Lee announced that our Constitution is 400 years old. [LINK].

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) declared the U.S. Constitution to be 400 years old Wednesday on the House floor, which would mean it was signed in 1614.
"Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not," she said.

And people voted for this idiot. Maybe America DOES deserve to go under.

Isn't it funny how those who deem themselves our lords and masters do not think THEY should have their rights violated the way they continue to violate OURS? [LINK]. DiFi, that gun-grabbing CCW holding Kahleefourneeyah senatorial piece of trash is ripping the CIA over it's apparent monitoring of a computer being used by Congress to investigate the CIA. Ain't that a shame? Po' wittle Feinstein is all pissed off over this violation of her 4th Amendment rights, while she supports destroying her constituents' 4th Amendment rights using the NSA, their 2nd Amendment rights any way she can up to and including confiscation (in her own words, mind you -- [LINK]) (note that if you hunt for this video, some sites have banned it claiming copyright infringement—even though she said it during a news interview), and their 4th Amendment rights again using the TSA's warrantless searches of ever airline passenger. Funny, Feinstein sure hasn't had a problem with the government ignoring the Constitution when spying on American and foreign citizens. Just last month, she defended government surveillance:

"What keeps me up at night, candidly, is another attack against the United States. And I see enough of the threat stream to know that is possible. But the way we prevent another attack—and this is tricky—is intelligence. You have to know what's going to happen, because it's too late otherwise."
There are all kinds of things that are going on. And for some reason, the fear of our government for a bonafide reason, which is to prevent a terrorist attack, raising this kind of concern, when there are only 22 people in our country who have access to this database and every one of them is vetted."

During her speech this morning, Feinstein expressed disbelief over the CIA's alleged spying on Congress:

"The CIA just went and searched the committee's computers," Feinstein said, breathlessly.

Yeah, we know the feeling, lady. It's sort of shocking and disconcerting to find out your privacy is being unlawfully invaded, isn't it? Makes you feel uneasy and a bit violated, doesn't it? What a hypocritical be-atch she is—typical of the Democrat Party (though Republicans do it almost as much). Read this Republican's nicely phrased response to her. [LINK]. He hits the nail on the head. Now, if only he could get HIS party to behave.......

The peaceful revolution is growing by leaps and bounds. Kahleefourneeyah's liberal bias is well known, however, as the article points out, not all Californians are liberals. And the bay area is proving that to be true. [LINK]. It certainly appears that gun owners are, ala Connecticut, refusing to comply with an anti-Constitutional law. (Note—I am trying to avoid the term "unconstitutional", as it is less accurate than "ANTI-Constitutional.)

Inside Bay Area reports that California state law has banned making, selling, giving and lending magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds since 2000. But those who owned them before 2000 were allowed to keep them.
In November 2013, 67% of voters in Sunnyvale, a city in Silicon Valley in south Bay Area, approved a gun-control Measure C banning high-capacity magazine no matter when they were acquired. Owners of such magazines are supposed to turn them in to the police for destruction, sell them out of state or to a licensed gun dealer, or move the banned magazines out of town.

But Sunnyvale police say nobody has showed up at the city's Department of Public Safety to turn over their magazines.
Sunnyvale city spokeswoman Jennifer Garnett dismissed the possibility that many owners are simply ignoring the new ordinance, saying, "The magazines have a value so it's not surprising at all that people would consider alternatives like selling them versus turning them in to Public Safety. Barring any unusual circumstances, we wouldn't cite people for voluntarily turning in their large capacity magazines to Public Safety even though it is legally possible at this time to cite them."
San Francisco approved a similar ban last year, but San Francisco police Sgt. Eric O'Neal said his department has no system to track whether any magazines have been turned in for destruction under the new ordinance.

Please note that I am not even remotely convinced of this particular author's conviction that Sandy Hook never happened. The rest of his article is, however, accurately backstopped and linked to multiple sources.

Ahhhh, lovely liberal New York. Violating the Bill of Rights at every opportunity. [LINK]. Hamburg NY sues a man for his pro-2nd Amendment/anti NYSAFE Act sign.

Zwierucha received a notice from the town for that sign in November, but says when he went to speak with the Town Supervisor he was told it was fine as it was constitutionally protected free speech.
But on Jan. 14, Zwierucha received another notice advising him to remove the sign. At that point, Zwierucha switched to different signage, a large banner that displayed in bright, bold letters the message, "NY IS NOT S.A.F.E.!! STOP CUOMO—PRESERVE YOUR RIGHTS!!"

Ironically, the town sent only him the second notice the day after the town board majority "flipped Democrat," according to Zwierucha. His suspicions are sound considering our reportage of anti-gun democrats in the New York state Senate who had originally proposed gun confiscation be included in the SAFE Act.
"It in no way causes a problem for anyone," Zwierucha told Buffalo News. "This is a first amendment issue. There are fences with commercial messages on it all over town," he said.
It's on this basis Zwierucha's lawyer, Jim Ostrowski, wants the city to dismiss the case.
"You have an absolute right to have a political sign on your property in spite of any local laws to the contrary. . Off the public right of way you can have any sign you want and that's been ruled on by the Supreme Court," Ostrowski said during an interview with WBEN's Hardline program.

Funny how that pesky First Amendment doesn't pertain to the 2nd Amendment when Democrats are in power....

Several people have sent me links to this story. Including, but not limited to, Paul, Gunny, Mom, and Joe. [LINK]. [LINK]. and [LINK]. In a series of FaceBook posts, a Connecticut cop tells Connecticut residents "I cannot wait for the orders to kick in your door" when the topic was the new anti-Constitutional CT gun laws. That asswipe is now suspended, pending an investigation. Gotta wonder if they will whitewash it or punish him.

Mama Liberty, being one of the most interesting and wonderful people it has been my privilege to meet, even though I've never actually been in her presence, I like to open or close my rants with her work. So here she is, closing this one out. [LINK]. This one is on addiction, not guns, but that's what you get when a passionate RN, self defense instructor, an all around great lady sends you her latest—you get interested.

And so... the time has come... and this rant faces... it's final curtain.
