Connecticut Gubernatorial Candidate Tom Foley Betrays Gun Owners – Supports Gun Grabber

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Tom Foley, the winner of the Republican Convention for governor in the state of Connecticut, gave strong support for Second Amendment supporters. However after doing so, Foley then turned his back on them and encouraged his delegates to vote for the number one Republican anti-gun politician, John McKinney. A last minute decision, according to video documenter Palin Smith, “put McKinney over the 15% threshold of primary election qualification.” This leaves gubernatorial candidate Joe Visconti as a possible Dark Horse in the race.

  Palin Smith has contributed many necessary videos documenting the fiasco that is going on in Connecticut. In this latest one, a delegate to the convention said that Tom Foley talks a good game, but it was his actions that were disturbing.”

Watch Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal Narrowly Avoid A Train During A Railway Safety Press Conference

 

 

 

 

 

” Actions may speak louder than words, but Sen. Richard Blumenthal took that mentality to the extreme on Friday.

  The Connecticut Democrat was standing behind Milford Mayor Ben Blake on the town’s Metro-North station platform as the two held a press conference on railway safety. Complete with easels and charts, Blake was laying out the MTA’s safety violations, which total 139 over the last 10 years, worth $552,000 in fines.

Safety, as you know, is paramount,” Blake said — and then this happened.”

Register Nothing

 

 

” In the April issue of Townhall Magazine, Bearing Arms editor Bob Owens asks what would happen if a liberal government passed a new gun law but nobody obeyed it?

  Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy (D) signed what the Hartford Courant called “the toughest assault weapons legislation in the nation” last year. It required owners of semi-automatic firearms to register all firearms designated as “assault weapons” with the state government, along with any “high capacity” magazines they may own, by December 31, 2013.

  The Malloy regime expected Connecticut residents to register somewhere between 372,000-400,000 firearms, and roughly 2 million firearm magazines that held more than 10 rounds before January 1.

What they got instead was defiance. “

 

 

 

     And as Bob points out , the results in New York , while not quite finalized , are likely to be even more dismal for the Statists in Albany .

 

 

 

” A nearly identical problem is brewing next door in the much larger, more populous state of New York, thanks to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s hastily-passed NY SAFE Act. That law demands that New Yorkers register their semi-automatic “assault rifles” with the government by April 15.

  While Connecticut is thought to have something less than 400,000 firearms classified as “assault weapons” under their law, New York is thought to have as many as 1 million firearms meeting New York’s revised criteria.

  Cuomo faces an even bigger registration problem in New York than Malloy did in Connecticut because many of New York’s sheriffs are in near open revolt against the SAFE Act, and have stated publicly that they will not enforce it. While they have been less publicly vocal, New York State Troopers have quietly indicated that they, too, will do as little as possible to enforce the law.”

Copper Beech Farm

 

 

 

 

” A sprawling estate, situated on prime waterfront property along the US East Coast, has sold for $120 million, setting a new record in the United States.

The sale of Copper Beech Farm, in the Connecticut town of Greenwich, was finalized Friday, according to the Greenwich Time newspaper.”

” “This is the most expensive property sold in America,” real estate agent David Ogilvy told the newspaper.

The dream home had been listed for sale nearly a year earlier, in May 2013, for $190 million.”

Copper Beech Farm

” The 13,500-square-foot (1,250-square-meter) main house, originally built in 1898 in French Renaissance style, has 12 bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 10 fireplaces, a library, a solarium, a wine cellar and a servant’s wing.”

Man Planned To Fly Model Planes Packed With Bombs Into School: FBI

 

 

 

Illegal Alien Drone Bomb Plot

 

 

” A Moroccan man was busted for allegedly plotting to attack a school and a Connecticut federal building using remote-controlled toy planes packed with explosives.

  FBI agents arrested El Mehdi Semlali Fahti, 27, after a sting revealed his alleged plot, according to the Connecticut Post.

  The feds found wires and tools in Fahti’s Stamford home, the report said. It was not clear if he had any explosives there as well.

  He allegedly told an agent that he had studied the plan for months, that he had learned how to pack the explosives while he was a student in his home country, and that he would be able to obtain the materials at the Mexican border, the newspaper reported.

  He also said the plot would be funded through “secret accounts” that used laundered cash and drug-dealing profits.

   There’s no need to secure our border , nah , nothing bad can come from the unchecked illegal invasion of our southern border . Can’t we sue the Federal government for failure to do their PRIMARY job ?

Ammo On School Bus Triggers Probe, Lockdowns

 

 

PCSPhoto08-11-11

 

 

 

” A live round of ammunition found on a school bus triggered lockdowns at two schools in northeastern Connecticut Wednesday while administrators and police tried to determine its origin, school officials said.

  An adolescent who attends Pomfret Community School, 20 Pomfret St., was escorted from the school after a knife was discovered in the student’s locker, said Matt Bisceglia, superintendent of schools. The student was not arrested but may face disciplinary action from the school, he said.”

” Why what is happening in Connecticut matters to any American who values what our founders and forefathers fought for, as has every soldier since.

A State Government (CT) seeks to physically take our guns and 1st and 2nd amendments from its own citizens without any Constitutionality. Know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE, America is with you!

Our so called movement leaders feel safe to talk the tough talk and regale on the tumult of the times we live….. but will you stand firmly and speak straight when it is time to back up the claims we make, most won’t, will You?

Will you stand your ground knowing your outcome is grim and most likely fatal? Would you fight knowing you will fall, never seeing the glory for which you fought (but you will have peace, are we already fighting in spiritual chains)?

Would you give up everything, your life for the idea we call Freedom and Liberty?And not in suicide, but in American Glory! The second amendment is a serious one. People died for this idea to even exist let alone be remembered by us today because they wouldn’t give up their guns when they were told to so. Lexington and Concord are case and point: it wasn’t just one person, an individual…… these were men of purpose who quickly formed up and just went knowing full well that they might die that day with Free Will and God in their heart. 

  We may be called to serve that duty because they have compelled us to the separation….. Remember your oath! Might you be called to kill for it? What does the BILL OF RIGHTS mean to you?

(Aside) Military men, you know this in spades! You have been there. Educate the people around you, be the leader you swore an oath to be!

“ In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” — Thomas Jefferson

We can’t be alone in this, we have to come to each other’s aide. An unjust act demands a measured and just response so overwhelming it could turn from conflagration to politics to melee and retaliation in the instant it begins. They want you divided to separate you. They will come to your individual houses and take you with a squad knowing we will let it happen in our own neighborhoods and do nothing. We have to let them know that unconstitutional or tyrannical acts will be met with the full force of the second amendment itself! This will get ugly real fast.

  It’s not in the news because they (who are they anyway? Fascism, Communism – both Socialism and Marxism) know what happens if you WAKE A SLEEPING GIANT! So, they hush it up.

They got really messed up the last time they tried to take us in WW2. With stories like this being squelched, might it be time to dust of your weapons and see if they still work?

Let us see if we can find the hero we have been calling for! He has been within us all along! It is you, and everyone else all around you that have to survive as well. It is us, WE ARE THE SLEEPING GIANT!

Have a response team (of friends, citizens, PATRIOTS) that moves to respond or even your neighborhood to take the long shots (old people can shoot too….. know your neighbors and find their plan and work together, know what they believe and think. Yes, we may become involved in something that has us not lasting long at all, we probably won’t even survive but understand people will see this as one of those times that changed the direction of History itself. By guns, politics or character assassination we will all take extreme hits from all directions but would you take the glory of standing for what you believe WITH YOUR LIFE?!?! To the solitude of chains????Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say ‘what should be the reward of such sacrifices?’ Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” —-Sam Adams 

  Tyrannical law and Unconstitutional acts are to be met with the ferocity of is natural manure at the foot of the Tree of Liberty! This will not stand! This is virtually uncovered in the big media, even on national television and FOX, this issue is one to unite us to 100 years more of quasi-peace or plunge us into a civil revolutionary war. (Up vs. Down vs. Right vs. Left vs. what is left of Americanism). You have no chance If you do nothing. If what you are doing is not working, do something else! DO ANYTHING ELSE!!!

My prediction – In the end of this stifled circus we will see the authorities back off. This is a tactic to see if we will stand and push back. It they know that we will not, they will start to roll on us hard from here knowing we will fold. We usually do fold, if not in the immediacy, we usually let our guard down eventually. There is such a concept as being “too free”. If they see that we are together and will stand, they will stand down and be in the periphery until they feel they can have another go at us. It’s the way bullies and communism have worked since its beginning. 

  I think and pray and hope with all my might that these people retract from this treasonous behavior, and when they do, we come after them with everything we can to take them from office by vote or any means necessary because un-American becomes Treason when you they actively, visibly and provably come to enslave you, that’s all they want really. Its simple!

Controversy Over Facebook Photo Of Baby Holding Rifle

 

 

Baby Rifle

 

” A report it photo from a viewer is sending shock waves across social media and the state Tuesday. The photo was snapped at a local gun store and it shows a [sic]Bolt Action Rifle, resting on a baby’s lap.

  That picture of the sixth-month-old baby girl with the rifle in front of her was taken by her father at Woodbridge Firearms Trading Post. He and the store owner say it’s just a picture, others say it’s just wrong.

  The baby girl is becoming very popular on social media. The picture of the baby with a rifle resting on her lap was sent in to News 8 through our Report It feature and many are reacting.

“ She can’t even speak yet and she has a gun in her hand and it’s bizarre,” said Alexa Grose, Seymour.

  Baby Genevieve without the gun, with her bottle and her dad, Christopher Duffy, met News 8′s Erin Logan at Woodbridge Firearms where Duffy bought the gun.”

 

 

    The original hysterical story comes from WTNH while the Blaze offers a much more even-handed take on this manufactured “controversy” including some fabulous comments(see below) aimed at the busybodies whose lives must be perfect given they have so much time to worry about other people’s business . Read the comments and enjoy …

Oh no … more school girls with guns … Have you called the EMT’s

    Here we have the ultimate horror … children being taught to shoot those “evil assault” rifles … are you lefties still conscious ?

Kids Black Rifle

 

 

 

 

Here’s one more just in case cardiac arrest still eludes the nannies among us … 

 

 

 

Believe it or not you busybody milksops there are millions of us parents who have been teaching our children gun safety and shooting for as long as the kids have been old enough to absorb the lessons , just as we were taught by our parents .

    And you know what ? Our households aren’t the ones that suffer from accidental shootings or juvenile delinquency . Our children grow up with a healthy respect for the power of firearms instead of the irrational fear of inanimate instruments that you teach yours . Knowledge and respect prevent the disasters inherent with ignorant curiosity .

    It is only a desire to maintain my son’s and my own privacy that prevents me from posting video of my 11 year old blazing away at the range with a full auto HK MP-5 . He’s an awesome shot with that , pistols and rifles . Soon to be better than his dad . That flick would surely require the paramedics .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wolfgang Halbig Raises Many Questions About The Sandy Hook Shooting

 

 

 

Published on Feb 13, 2014

http://americanfreepress.net/?p=15503

” Wolfgang W. Halbig doesn’t believe anyone was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012, and he’s looking for some answers. So many answers, in fact, that he was paid a visit by some police investigators telling him to back off.

  Mr. Halbig isn’t your average “conspiracy theorist.” He’s worked in public education as a teacher, dean, assistant principal, principal of an alternative school and as the Director for School Safety and Security for the Seminole County Public Schools, a school district of approximately 65,000 students.

  A former Florida State Trooper and United States Customs Inspector, Mr. Halbig was invited by the U.S. Department of Justice to train over 3,500 school police officers, school superintendents and school principals. He travels the country providing presentations and keynotes to a variety of school board associations and conferences and is a nationally-recognized school safety and security expert and consultant, who has provided safety training and school assessments for more than 4,000 school districts nationwide.

  Dave Gahary spoke with Wolfgang about why he doesn’t believe the official story of the Sandy Hook Elementary School event, in this interesting interview (43:23). “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Officials In Connecticut Stunned By What Could Be A Massive, State-Wide Act Of ‘Civil Disobedience’ By Gun Owners

 

 

” On Jan. 1, 2014, tens of thousands of defiant gun owners seemingly made the choice not to register their semi-automatic rifles with the state of Connecticut as required by a hastily-passed gun control law. By possessing unregistered so-called “assault rifles,” they all technically became guilty of committing Class D felonies overnight.

  Police had received 47,916 applications for “assault weapons certificates” and 21,000 incomplete applications as of Dec. 31, Lt. Paul Vance told The Courant.

  At roughly 50,000 applications, officials estimate that as little as 15 percent of the covered semi-automatic rifles have actually been registered with the state. “No one has anything close to definitive figures, but the most conservative estimates place the number of unregistered assault weapons well above 50,000, and perhaps as high as 350,000,” the report states.

  Needless to say, officials and some lawmakers are stunned.”

 

   Did they really believe that most gun owners would comply ? Apparently , even though the track record nationwide is poor at best .

 

” Republican state Sen. Tony Guglielmo told The Courant he recently spoke to a constituent at a meeting in Ashford, who informed him that some of his friends with semi-automatic rifles are intentionally taking a stand.

“ He made the analogy to prohibition,” the lawmaker recalled. “I said, ‘You’re talking about civil disobedience, and he said ‘Yes.’”

  Guglielmo said he really thought the “vast majority would register.” “

Welfare Payouts Top $20 Per Hour In Eight States

 

welfare payouts

 

 

 ” In 35 states, welfare, housing assistance and other benefits pays more than a minimum wage job, according to a new study by the Cato Institute. The study also found that in 13 states, the payout is more than $15 per hour.

  Of course, this study doesn’t take into account that not everyone on public assistance receives all of the programs. But if they did, their payout would be significantly higher than even a starting teacher’s salary in 11 states or a computer programmer in 3 states.

  The states with the highest welfare payouts – more than $20 per hour – are Hawaii, with payments equaling $29.13 per hour, DC at $24.43 per hour, Massachusetts at $24.30 , Connecticut at $21.33, New York at $21.01 per hour, New Jersey at $20.89 per hour, Rhode Island at $20.83 per hour and Vermont at $20.36 per hour.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Problem For Gun Control Advocates Is That They Keep Promising That No Way Will Registration Lead To Confiscation Of Firearms, Even As It Does Just That.

 

 

 

 

” The problem for gun control advocates is that they keep promising that no way will registration lead to confiscation of firearms, even as it does just that. The Brady Campaign’s Dennis A. Henigan accuses the National Rifle Association of peddling “fear” for even raising the possibility. In the New York Times, Charles Blow calls such concerns “cultural paranoia.”

  Yet gun owners seem to have legitimate worries. Hundreds of New York City residents are receiving, and publicizing, letters demanding the surrender, not of scary “assault weapons,” whatever arbitrary definition may locally apply to that slippery term, but of target rifles and cowboy guns. Among the forbidden items gleaned from New York City registration lists and ordered to be surrendered or removed from city limits are the bolt-action Marlin 25N, and lever-action Browning 92 and Winchester 94 rifles. Semi-automatic rifles of the plinking variety, such as the AR-7, have been targeted, too.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sandy Hook Report Sheds No Light On Motive

 

Sandy Hook Report

Click Image For Full Report

 

” A summary of the nearly yearlong investigation into the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was released by a Connecticut state’s attorney Monday, shedding little new light on the shooting that killed 26 people, including 20 children, on Dec. 14, 2012.

 The 48-page report describes how 20-year-old gunman Adam Lanza killed his mother, Nancy Lanza, at their Newtown home before driving to the school, forcing his way in and fatally shooting 20 first-graders and six educators with an assault rifle.

 But it does not establish a motive for Lanza, who turned a gun on himself as police arrived.The report concluded that Lanza acted alone.”

 

Lanza had mental issues ? Who would have guessed ?

 

 ” Lanza clearly had mental health issues, but prosecutors have no idea whether they contributed to his decision to take the lives of 20 children — a decision they say was meticulously premeditated. And they do not know why he chose Sandy Hook Elementary School for his crime, except perhaps that it was close to his home.”

 

    This whole mad act stinks and has from day one and this report does nothing to clarify anything , seeming at times to be a snowjob of the entire horrific event . We are not typical conspiracy theorists but it gets harder every day to have any faith in official utterances of any kind as we are regularly bombarded with reports of authoritative corruption and abuse of power .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thorium-Fueled Automobile Engine Needs Refueling Once A Century

 

Thorium Concept Car

Cadillac World Thorium Fuel Concept Car

 

 

” There are now over one billion cars traveling roads around the world directly and indirectly costing trillions of dollars in material resources, time and noxious emissions. Imagine all these cars running cleanly for 100 years on just 8 grams of fuel each.

Laser Power Systems (LPS) from Connecticut, USA, is developing a new method of automotive propulsion with one of the most dense materials known in nature: thorium. Because thorium is so dense it has the potential to produce tremendous amounts of heat. The company has been experimenting with small bits of thorium, creating a laser that heats water, produces steam and powers a mini turbine.”

 

 

 

 

   A single gram of Thorium produces the energy equivalent of 7,400 gallons of gasoline . Read this for a primer on the natural element and ponder the alternative energy possibilities .

 

 

” Thorium is a naturally occurring radioactive chemical element with the symbol Th and atomic number 90. It was discovered in 1828 by the Norwegian mineralogist Morten Thrane Esmark and identified by the Swedish chemist Jöns Jakob Berzelius and named after Thor, the Norse god of thunder.

Thorium produces a radioactive gas, radon-220, as one of its decay products. Secondary decay products of thorium include radium and actinium. In nature, virtually all thorium is found as thorium-232, which undergoes alpha decay with a half-life of about 14.05 billion years. Other isotopes of thorium are short-lived intermediates in the decay chains of higher elements, and only found in trace amounts. Thorium is estimated to be about three to four times more abundant than uranium in the Earth’s crust, and is chiefly refined from monazite sands as a by-product of extracting rare earth metals.

Thorium was once commonly used as the light source in gas mantles and as an alloying material, but these applications have declined due to concerns about its radioactivity. Thorium is also used as an alloying element in nonconsumable TIG welding electrodes.

CanadaChinaGermanyIndia, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States have experimented with using thorium as a substitute nuclear fuel in nuclear reactors. When compared to uranium, there is a growing interest in thorium-based nuclear power due to its greater safety benefits, absence of non-fertile isotopes and its higher occurrence and availability. India’s three stage nuclear power programme is possibly the most well known and well funded of such efforts.

 

 

  Here is a documentary from the Motherboard Youtube channel on the Thorium Dream .

 

 

 

 

   And what would a dream energy source be if without controversy and conspiracy?

Connecticut Man Arrested For Having “Too Many” Guns & Model Rockets

 

 

 

” Connecticut Police raided the home of Joseph Callahan, 69, confiscated more than 270 guns and he was charged with several felonies, including 11 counts of illegal possession of explosives and six counts of first-degree reckless endangerment. Was Callahan really endangering anyone or planning some sort of terrorist attack? No, he was not.

According to Callahan’s attorney, Richard Meehan, he is just a collector, a gun aficionado, and a hoarder. Meehan also claims that Callahan is a retired chemist and collector who had no “nefarious intent” when items were discovered at his upscale Fairfield home.

Not mentioned in many of the reports was the fact that Callahan is a chemist by trade and actually has a federal permit to possess explosives. Yet, the ATF was involved with the investigation and failed to cease and desist their tyranny against Mr. Callahan.

Callahan was arraigned on October 16. His attorney says he will return to court on November 5 and plead not guilty.

There is no limit to the number of guns one can own under the Second Amendment. Obviously, Mr. Callahan had a federal permit to possess explosives and quite frankly, I can drive 1 mile in any direction and get M-80s by the hundreds if I want them without a permit. So the bigger question is, why did law enforcement not follow the law here? Why did they drag this man through all of this? Can you say Police State? Can you say tyranny? “

 

 

      And so it begins … They will start with the known large gun collections , note that according to the story all the guns were legally “registered” , and gradually move to find excuses to spread their net ever wider in an effort to “legally” confiscate citizen’s firearms without actually stating that that is their intention . Statism is on the march .

” Please tell me once again, gun grabbers, how well your laws work:

The arrest of three juveniles suspected of committing two weekend robberies led to the arrest of a fourth who was manufacturing and selling homemade firearms, police said.

The robberies happened over the weekend in the East Rock area, according to police. When the suspects were apprehended, one of them was in possession of a homemade “zip-gun,” police said.

Detectives obtained a search and seizure warrant for a residence on Mountain Ridge Road using the information provided by the three juveniles. Inside, officers found another assembled gun, a partially assembled gun and other gun components, police said.

A juvenile living in the residence was arrested and later told police that he had made and sold as many as 12 “zip-guns,” police said.

Guns can be incredibly low tech, and if you doubt me, read up on how simple it is to make a Sten submachine gun some time.”

Connecticut Police REFUSED To Send A Hostage Negotiator To Petit Home The Morning They Were Brutally Murdered

 

 

 

” Connecticut police decided against sending a hostage negotiator to the home of the Petit family on the morning they were brutally murdered, it has emerged.

Jennifer Hawke-Petit was raped and strangled to death and her daughters, Hayley, 17, and Michaela, 11, were tied to their beds and died when the house in Cheshire was set alight on July 23, 2007.

The girls’ father, Dr. William Petit was beaten and tied up but escaped the flames, living to see 
Joshua Komisarjevsky and Stephen Hayes be sentenced to death in 2011 for the murders.

On the sixth anniversary of the horrific killings, the Hartford Courant has obtained police calls through law enforcement sources showing that officers with the Cheshire Police Department doubted the danger underway at the household.”

Gun Control Backfires? Rick Perry Lures Connecticut Gunmakers To Texas

 

 

 

 

” The shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., have brought into high relief one of the anachronisms of the American economy: Some of the biggest and most influential makers of firearms in the United States are located in some of its bluest – and most antigun – states.

That is a fact that Gov. Rick Perry (R) of Texas hopes to turn to his advantage this week.

He is scheduled to visit Colt’s Manufacturing, which has been in Connecticut since 1847, and Mossberg & Sons of North Haven, Conn., the largest maker of shotguns in the US, among other manufacturers and suppliers in Connecticut and New York.”

 

Good for Governor Perry . Here’s wishing him much success .
