VA Tries to Confiscate Disabled Vet’s Guns, Stopped by Citizens and Sheriff Standing Guard

Published

on

via Truth About Guns: President Obama has said time and again that his greatest disappointment was that he was unable to enact new gun control legislation to further restrict the right of American citizens to keep and bear arms. In an effort to do an end run around Congress and enact some of that legislation, the Obama administration enacted some new policies that would make it impossible for some disabled vets to purchase guns and might even lead to their existing firearms being confiscated. That very nightmare scenario — the VA forcibly confiscating the firearms of a disabled veteran — almost happened in Idaho yesterday, but the VA was stopped in its tracks by a grassroots group of local residents. And the sheriff. And some politicians. All of whom stood on the man’s front yard to prevent the confiscation.

From the AP:

A group of residents in northern Idaho lined up outside a U.S. Navy veteran’s house on Thursday to protest claims that federal officials are planning on confiscating the man’s weapons.

Idaho Republican state Rep. Heather Scott of Blanchard said the Veteran Affairs office has sent a letter to John Arnold of Priest River warning him that he cannot possess or purchase firearms.

The protest -spearheaded by Scott- attracted roughly 100 people. Among them were Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler, who promised to stand guard against any federal attempts to remove Arnold’s guns, and Republican Washington state Rep. Matthew Shea of Spokane Valley, who described the event as a “defiance against tyranny.”

“I took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and uphold the laws of Idaho,” Wheeler said. “This seemed appropriate to show my support. I was going to make sure Mr. Arnold’s rights weren’t going to be breached.”

During Thursday’s demonstration, the group at times broke out in song to sing “God Bless America” and pray while waving both the American flag and the “Don’t tread on me” flag. With a population of just 1,700, Priest River is near the tip of northern Idaho- a region known for its strong tea party roots and gun-rights activism.

According to local news sources, the VA had sent the man a letter stating that an inspector was going to come to his house on the 6th to inspect his firearms and confiscate them. The VA confirmed that they sent the man a letter, but they deny that the VA has the power to confiscate guns from anyone. Which is true — the VA has reportedly been working with the FBI as their muscle to perform the actual confiscations. From the article on that particular issue:

A memo from February of 2012 was first obtained by the Daily Caller and titled “MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS AND THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION REGARDING THE NATIONAL INSTANT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEM,” has been causing quite the stir.

This particular memo dictates that the VA must submit veterans health-related information to the FBI by way of encrypted compact disc and mailed quarterly. It states that the records will be used to update the NICS or National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

A separate document revealed that the VA provides a monthly list of veterans who have been rated by the VA as incapable of managing their VA benefits. A simple act of changing ones banking information could get a veteran on this list, as well as refusal to take the VA prescribed pills.

There’s a very dangerous game being played here. Much like with the terrorist watch list, people could be added to these secret no-gun lists at any time (and even by mistake) and then get a lovely knock on their door from the friendly local FBI agent to come violate their constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms.

In this case it looks like a paperwork change has caused this chain of events to kick off. Some people are saying that there’s a well known process for milking the VA for a little more change in the monthly disability check that involves declaring yourself unable to manage your own finances. That doesn’t mean the vet in question actually has any mental issues at all — it simply means that he claims he can’t balance his checkbook and needs someone to do it for him. In the eyes of the VA that apparently puts him on the same level of the crazy scale as James Holmes and qualifies for firearms confiscation. The end result is that the disabled vet in question now has to spend his own time money and effort to prove to the VA that he isn’t dangerous before they stop trying to confiscate his firearms. Shouldn’t it be the other way around?

The ongoing stigma against people with a mental disability has made them an easy target in the gun control arena. President Obama and the rest of the gun control cheering squad have been using people with mental issues as a favorite whipping post, blaming everyone with even a slight case of ADD for all the gun related ills of the world. What you see here is the end result: people with mental disabilities having their rights trampled without any due process simply because Obama and Bloomberg think that they are an easy target.

Michelle Busted in FOUL Act With ‘Special’ Friends On Private Vacay Away From Barack

THE CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG NOW!!

Published

on

For the past eight years, Michelle Obama strutted around the United States like she owned the place and is now living the fruits of that “labor” while on a perpetual post-presidential vacation. She ditched her husband this week and jetted off to Mallorca, Spain with some “special” friends. Although she thought she had banned all photographers, she can’t control everyone as a couple onlookers caught the former first lady going full-ghetto with the foul thing she did.

Not only did Michelle leave her husband behind for this private vacation, she’s also without her youngest daughter, Sasha. She hasn’t been seen with her teen more than a handful of times since leaving the White House. Now, it looks like the 53-year-old mother is trying to act like her daughters while sowing her wild oats.

Travels: The former First Lady, 53, boarded a yacht on Friday, wearing a white crop top and a stylish wrap skirt with a bird pattern, letting the fabric flow to show her toned legs

Michelle Obama has had several classless public displays since moving out of the White House, as she no longer has to hide her true self behind her First Lady facade. A few months ago, we witnessed the real Michelle show complete disregard for sacred holy sites when she showed up to a historic Italian Catholic church in a blouse literally held together by a few strings and falling off her. Most respectable people have the wherewithal to realize that there’s a staunch dress code in places like this, but Michelle didn’t seem to care.

Now her classlessness has just reached a nasty new low with what she was caught doing on her island vacation that she’s sharing with her LGBT friends – former United States Ambassador to Spain James Costos and his husband Michael Smith.

The fact that she was once the First Lady of the United States seems even more shocking now than when he was in the White House, after seeing how Michelle carries herself when she thinks nobody is looking.

Coming off the heels of her embarrassing and uncivilized antics in Italy, where she looked like she had just rolled out of the club and into the cathedral, Michelle decided to double down on that depraved appearance.

Attire: Michelle opted to wear capri leggings as she headed out in Mallorca, along with a sports bra and a sleeveless top

Forgetting that she’s 53-years-old, Michelle was seen sporting a skirt with a slit so high it showed all of her thigh and part of her backside. Regardless that this is not s sight most want to see of her, she made it worse with what she was wearing (and showing) the next day.

Acting like a teen or millennial, Michelle went out in public forgetting something she probably should have put on before leaving her hotel room.

Michelle emerged for dinner wearing a black strappy outfit with no bra. To most people, this would be inappropriate, but that decency was apparently lost on her. Worse yet, was how she looked when going on another island adventure during this trip, paying homage to her rapper friends with what she decided to wear.

Michelle went on a hike around the island, surrounded by her staff and security, and if you didn’t know it was a former first lady, you’d assume that it was a thuggish rapper based on her attire. Trying to hide her face with a black hood, Michelle stomped around the island in all black “street” clothes.

The Daily Mail praised her for her looks, referring to it as an A-list style:

“Michelle Obama looked ever the A-lister as she stepped out for a workout and a yacht trip in Mallorca, Spain,” the site reported.

“The former First Lady, 53, shielded herself from the sun with shades and a black hood to enjoy a hike around the island on Thursday.”

“She was surrounded by members of her staff tagging along for the sweat session, with members of her security team flanking her.”

 

“The day after her hike, Michelle boarded a yacht, wearing a white crop top and a stylish wrap skirt with a bird pattern, letting the fabric flow to show her toned legs.”

Since there’s nothing that can be done about paying for these two for the rest of their lives, they should just slip into obscurity, especially since Michelle insists on flaunting her thigh and braless chest anytime she travels. It’s as if she has something to prove and doesn’t realize that nobody wants to see it. Her appearance is an insult to the injury she left this country with, by having to see her backside hang out of her skirt – yet the left wants to talk about Melania Trump looking inappropriate.

While President Donald Trump is picking up the pieces that this anti-American couple left behind, it’s obnoxious to know that Michelle is enjoying on-going trips and flaunting it, while the people of this country are footing the bill.

Trump has done a masterful job of getting America back on track, which the Obamas can’t stand. While they’re vacationing and looking like the disrespectful duo they are, they also mock him and attempt to discredit him in the process

Sartorial choices: At one point on Friday, Michelle changed into different clothes, and was spotted wearing a black outfit and a hat while leaving a restaurant

BREAKING!! Obama Just Made DISGUSTING Announcement About His Daughter! NEVER EXPECTED THAT!

NEVER SAW THAT COMING!!

Published

on

The Obama family was spotted by paparazzi doing what they’re best at doing. This time it was only partially paid for by taxpayers. Half of the Obama family was on vacation in Miami, soaking up some sun, spending taxpayer money on security that had to travel. That’s when it got bizarre. Former President Obama became quite strange and creepy, even though he wasn’t spotted on the trip, but sure had something odd to say about it. Only Malia and Michelle were located in Miami, trying to soak up the taxpayer sun, and Barack still found his way to be mentioned in the article about the girl’s vacation. Nonetheless, Barack was pathetic, but that’s nothing new considering he went on an ‘apology tour’ during his Presidency.

The Daily Mail captured Malia and Michelle Obama in photographs as they pranced around Miami, hitting up elegant restaurants and flaunting their body in bathing suits while the taxpayer-funded security loathed behind begrudgingly. The article spoke about what the Obama girls were wearing, where they were going, and it was quite stalkerish. The job of a paparazzi to legally stalk people while they’re doing things is creepy. But then we bring it back to Barack Obama and his chat about his daughter, and that’s where it becomes strange.

Daily Mail reported:
“The former first lady also sported a long white blouse, a bandanna and large fold hoop earrings for the outing. Malia was looking similarly casual alongside her mother in a tan hoodie over her swimsuit, of which just her black bikini bottoms were visible. The tall teen toted in her hands a pair of white sneakers and her iPhone with a charger. She also was carrying a hefty-looking book – perhaps a bit of holiday break homework from Harvard University, where Malia is due to return later this month.

The ladies looked as though they didn’t have a care in the world, appearing as though the post-White House life suits them just fine.
The day at the beach appeared to be all about girl time as former president Barack Obama was nowhere to be seen.

The day at the beach appeared to be all about girl time as former president Barack Obama was nowhere to be seen.”

The Daily Mail spoke about the details of the girl’s vacation before it transitioned into what Barack Obama was up to and talking about. He was babbling on about his talk with Letterman, and that’s where it became ‘pathetic’ and readers must have become a bit creeped out. Obama’s chat with Letterman was a drooling confession to his pathetic self, something many readers have known about since watching the former President rule the greatest country in the world with no guts, glory, or manhood that fellow men would look up to.

Daily Mail continued:
“He discussed her move-in day with David Letterman on the talk show legend’s new Netflix project My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.

Obama told him that he speaks with his daughter regularly because he is ‘pathetic,’ adding President Barack Obama said he was a wreck when he dropped his daughter Malia off at Harvard University. The 44th commander-in-chief discussed move-in day when he appeared as the first guest on David Letterman’s new Netflix talk show ‘My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman’.

Obama then described how he speaks with the 19-year-old regularly because he’s ‘pathetic’.

‘It was like open-heart surgery man,’ Obama told Letterman of moving his oldest daughter into her college dorm in August 2017.

‘And it was was interesting to see how everybody handled things differently. Michelle had a cleaning glove and was scouring the bathroom…Sasha tries to be cool because she didn’t want to admit that she was going to miss her sister so she was helping make the bed and fold clothes. I was basically useless.”

Useless? Pathetic? Why don’t they tell us something we don’t know? It’s peculiar to describe yourself as inadequate or pathetic. That’s not what people want to hear considering this was the 44th President of the United States. Former Presidents aren’t supposed to be pathetic. They’re supposed to be leaders and not weaklings bowing down to their daughters. How can she look up to him if he’s self-professed as pathetic?

That was a bizarre conversation with Letterman.

BREAKING News! FBI Agents Just Arrived In Little Rock – It’s STARTING!!

Published

on

What do you get when you untie the hands of the Justice Department and a President with some backbone in the Oval Office? An investigation into corruption! Whenever there is a party control change in Washington, the way there was during the last election, there is always a lot of talk about investigations. The difference between when liberals get into power and when conservatives get into power is that the liberals are allowed to investigate and usually find nothing, but Republicans are left dealing with adults acting like toddlers and a much smaller chance to investigate wrongdoing.

We’re still seeing a pattern of ticked off Clinton members getting in the way of justice. The last time this happened was when President Bush was elected in 2000. The outgoing Clinton administration and leftover Democrats made Bush’s life as miserable as possible. It took the nation being shaken by 9/11 to finally solidify his cabinet and take the focus off of the petulant toddlers in Washington and back on more significant issues.

This time around, Clinton didn’t win, but she and many of her supporters still throw a fit about it. The Justice Department is finally ready to get down and dirty to investigate her actions in an attempt to win the election.

The Conservative Post reports that the FBI is in Little Rock, Arkansas, where the Clintons used to live, and they are ready to sift through everything the Clintons own to find evidence of any crimes committed by Hillary Clinton.

“With James Comey finally out of the way, the Justice Department is going after Hillary Clinton like it should have years ago.

Earlier this month, the Department launched a fresh investigation into alleged criminal activity by Hillary when she served as Barack Obama’s secretary of state.

In particular, Clinton stands accused of engaging in “pay-to-play” politics with regards to an agreement with Russia that’s been labeled “Uranium One.”

But that’s not the only serious charge.

There’s mounting evidence that the Clinton Foundation was the recipient of enormous sums of money quite possibly in return for policy favors from Hillary.

The Hill reported that FBI agents stationed in Little Rock, Arkansas, where the Clinton Foundation was started, are taking the lead in the case.

They’ve already interviewed a number of witnesses, with much more activity promised in the coming weeks.

This is just the beginning, but we might finally see ‘Crooked Hillary’ get what’s coming to her.”

Americans have hopes and dreams about Hillary Clinton going to prison. Even many who weren’t concerned about her before the 2016 election has found the accusations leveled against her to be disturbing enough to make them want and warrant an investigation. As so many liberals told us when it came to President Trump’s campaign “if no wrong was done, they have nothing to worry about, so why not investigate?” We say the same thing about Hillary Clinton. If she has nothing to hide, then there is nothing to worry about.

Before anyone screams about privacy, just remember that she put herself in the position to be investigated when she became a Senator and the Secretary of State. She hasn’t been a private citizen for a very long time. Everything about her life is open for discussion. Thankfully, this investigation recently opened.

Here are more details about the much-anticipated investigation from The Hill:

“The Justice Department has launched a new inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of State, law enforcement officials and a witness tells The Hill.

The officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes.

The probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the foundation complied with applicable tax laws, the officials said.

One witness recently interviewed by the FBI described the session to The Hill as “extremely professional and unquestionably thorough” and focused on questions about whether donors to Clinton charitable efforts received any favorable treatment from the Obama administration on a policy decision previously highlighted in media reports.

The witness discussed his interview solely on the grounds of anonymity. He said the agents were from Little Rock and their questions focused on government decisions and discussions of donations to Clinton entities during the time Hillary Clinton led President Obama’s State Department.

The FBI office in Little Rock referred a reporter Thursday to Washington headquarters, where officials declined any official comment.

The Wall Street Journal reported late last year that several FBI field offices, including the one in Little Rock, had been collecting information on the Clinton Foundation for more than a year. The report also said there had been pushback to the FBI from the Justice Department.

Officials also said the Justice Department was re-examining whether there are any unresolved issues from the closed case into Clinton’s transmission of classified information through her personal email server. Former FBI Director James Comey in 2016 concluded Clinton was “extremely careless” in handling that classified information and that there was some evidence of legal violations, but he declined to recommend charges on the grounds that he could not prove Clinton and her top aides intended to break the law.

His decision was roundly criticized by Republicans, and recent revelations that his statement was watered down by edits and that he made the decision before all witness interviews were finished have led to renewed criticism.

A senior law enforcement official said the Justice Department was exploring whether any issues from that probe should be re-opened but cautioned the effort was not at the stage of a full investigation.”
