Ordinary Citizens

2017-10-14

Heinrich_HimmlerGermans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA — ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the state.                   

Heinrich Himmler

There’s a running meme on the internet:  Legal gun owners own over 200 million guns and a trillion rounds of ammunition.  Seriously people, if we were a problem, you’d know it.  Let’s be honest.  If the 1930s European Jews had been as well armed as today’s Americans, there never would have been a Holocaust. Unfortunately, they weren’t.

George Soros Buys Puts on MGM

2017-10-13

Money GrabAlong with Insider Trading at MGM, the blogosphere is also going nuts over George Soros buying puts (a bet that the stock will go down) on MGM Resorts International back somewhere between June 30th and August 14th.  To the conspiracy theorist, this is proof positive that George Soros is behind the shootings.

If we look at the SEC filings, we find that Soros Fund Management LLC placed a $42,242,000 bet that MGM’s stock would go down.  I don’t know about you, but to me that’s a lot of money.

For Soros Fund Management LLC is this unusual?  Well, let’s look at the other bets that stocks will go down in the same filing.

Insider Trading at MGM?

2017-10-12

Money GrabThe Mandalay Bay hotel is owned by MGM and the blogosphere is a buzz with the talk of insider trading by the CEO James Murren. They are implying he knew the shooting was going to take place and dumped up to 80% of his stock beforehand.

I love listening to a good conspiracy theory.  They are highly entertaining.  This one is pretty easy to verify or debunk since trades by insiders need to be registered with the SEC. Read the rest of this entry »

Time for Sanctuary Cities

2017-10-11

highway-sign-sanctuary-firearms-160Have you ever noticed the oath of office that is given to elected officials at the national level or to military personnel?  The oath is not to the government, not to the president, not to congress, and not to the Senate.  The oath is to defend the Constitution of the United States.  Why?  Because ultimately, when you get right down to it, the constitution is the United States.

The time may be at hand for cities and possibly states to affirm their loyalty to the U.S. Constitution by declaring themselves Sanctuary Cities for the second amendment.  Have a look at the bills that are being rushed through due to Vegas — and realize that every last one of them would have been ineffective at stopping the tragedy.

Budweiser Wants It Both Ways

2017-10-09

no-to-budweiserWell, Budweiser insists on supporting the NFL and those that are actively spitting on the flag, the national anthem, and the soldiers fighting for our country.  If that weren’t enough, Budweiser has an advertising campaign going (at least at Wal-Mart) claiming that they support our troops.  Sorry Budweiser, you can’t have it both ways.

It is time to boycott Budweiser — and let them know why you won’t be buying their brew anymore.
