Joseph Farah wrote a MUST READ article earlier this week called “WHY DOES OBAMA FEAR ARMED CITIZENRY?” While he logically deconstructs Obama recent anti-gun speech in Colorado, it is much more than an elegant retort. Farah actually makes an implicit case that the President is suffering from a psychopathic disorder.
To begin, Farah noted that Obama has consistently misrepresent the very reason the Bill of Rights includes a specific protection of the unalienable right to bear arms. Interesting – a point not overlooked at Second Amendment Patriots. But Obama also lied about his own personal position, which is clearly for the ban of most firearms currently owned by Americans. Again, interesting. Because of these extraordinary inaccurate statements about gun ownership, Farah believed the President’s own words needed to be thoroughly refuted. Well, by most accounts, he did just that.
For those that did not hear Obama’s speech in Colorado earlier this week, here is a portion of what he said:
The opponents of some of these common-sense laws have ginned up fears among responsible gun owners that have nothing to do with what’s being proposed, nothing to do with the facts, but feeds into this suspicion about government. You hear some of these quotes:
I’ need a gun to protect myself from the government.’
‘We can’t do background checks because the government’s going to come take my guns away.’
“The government’s us,” Obama continued. “These officials are elected by you. They are elected by you, I am elected by you. I am constrained as they are constrained by a system that our founders put in place. This is a government of and by and for the people. So surely we can have a debate that’s not based on the notion somehow that your elected representatives are trying to do something to you other than potentially prevent another group of families from grieving the way the families of Aurora or Newtown or Columbine have grieved. We’ve got to get past some of the rhetoric that gets perpetuated that breaks down trust and is so over the top that it just shuts down all discussion. And it’s important for all of us when we hear that talk to say ‘hold on a second.’ If there are any folks out there right now who are gun owners and you’ve been hearing that someone is taking away your guns, get the facts! We’re not proposing a gun registration system. We’re proposing background checks for criminals. Don’t just listen to what some advocates or folks who have an interest in this are saying. Look at the actual legislation. That’s what happened here in Colorado. And hopefully if we know the facts and we’re listening to each other, then we can actually move forward.”
Farah effectively argues that Obama “makes light of the argument that free citizens have a right and duty to be armed and vigilant to protect their liberty – including from government.” But as we know, this is exactly what the founding fathers and ratified the Second Amendment believed.
It doesn’t take a Harvard graduate to research a few basis facts about our constitution and second amendment. SIDE BAR: Did you know that in 2008 Obama surrendered license to practice law in order to escape insurance fraud charges? You didn’t! Interesting the press never reported that.
Back to the main point, here are a few historical proof points that support the facts around our constitutional basis:
— James Madison wrote in the Federalist Papers: “Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”
— Thomas Jefferson wrote in a proposal for the Virginia Constitution: “No Free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
— James Madison wrote in support of the Second Amendment: “The right of the people to keep and bear … arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country. …”
— George Mason said: “… to disarm the people – that was the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
— Noah Webster wrote: “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.”
— Alexander Hamilton wrote in the Federalist Papers: “… but if circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people, while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and use of arms, who stand ready to defend their rights. …”
Samuel Adams said: “The Constitution shall never be construed … to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”
— Richard Henry Lee, the initiator of the Declaration of Independence and a member of the Senate that passed the Bill of Rights, wrote: “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms, and be taught alike especially when young, how to use them.”
— Alexander Hamilton wrote in the Federalist Papers: “The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”
— Thomas Jefferson wrote in a letter quoted frequently by leftists of the 1960s and 1970s: “And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. … The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
— Patrick Henry said: “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.”
The indisputable intent of our founding fathers in constructing the Second Amendment was to ensure the people of the United States retained their God given natural rights of self protection and to thwart any suppressive actions of a future tyrannical government. To argue against this point is to argue against the facts of history itself.
But Obama goes on to also argues that he is not supportive of gun bans. This is yet another premeditated lie, another typical psychopathic behavior, which is supported by the following facts that where also revealed by Farah:
— In 1996, while still in Chicago, Obama supported a ban on handguns.
— In 1998, he supported a ban on all semiautomatic guns, which represent the vast majority of firearms currently owned by citizens in the U.S. In 2004, he advocated banning gun sales within five miles of a school or park (essentially a ban on virtually all gun stores).
— He served on the board of directors of the Joyce Foundation, the largest private funder of research seeking ways to ban gun ownership in the U.S.
— When Obama ran for the Illinois state Senate, he responded “Yes” when asked by Independent Voters of Illinois if he supported a “ban [on] the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns.”
— Obama is also on record in opposition to current laws in 48 states permitting citizens to carry concealed handguns for protection. About concealed carry laws.
— In March 2004, Barack Obama was one of the 20 state senators voting against Senate Bill 2165, a law with provisions designed to assert a right of citizens to protect themselves against home invasions so that self-defense requirements would take precedence over local ordinances against handgun possession.
Farah research into Obama’s deceptive practices is more than just a rebuttal of his Colorado speech. It begins to shine a light on psychology of the President’s very own mind set and the event disorders therein. As in the case of most psychopaths, do not pay attention to Obama’s words, for they are designed to misdirect and deceive. Instead, we must pay close attention to the President does, for just like the psychopath, he must remain physically consistent with his believes and is incapable of doing otherwise.
