Would Ted Poe and Freedom Caucus Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?

The big news today is that Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) has resigned from the House Freedom Caucus as he had wanted to vote for the Paul Ryan health care bill. According to Rep. Poe, he was not alone as perhaps a dozen or more members of this very-Conservative, GOP caucus, were ready to support the bill, primarily to end Obamacare and to give President Donald Trump a legislative victory. However, the Freedom Caucus votes as a unified block and the majority, led by Rep Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), opposed the American Health Care Act. This majority stood on principle, which is a fine and noble thing. But, very often principle does not get the job at hand done. A good example of this was seen last night in our favorite Zombie Apocalypse TV series, ″The Walking Dead″.

Democratic Party House Sit In for Gun Grabber Bills

Congress adjourned in chaos as members of the Democratic Party held a House sit in protesting for votes on new gun grabber bills. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan stood firm against this revolt which violates House rules. Even after CSPAN had turned off their cameras, the public network continued to carry the activities by the upstarts via social media like Periscope and Facebook. The protest was staged by Democratic Congressmen who are upset over no votes being held on the various gun control measures already voted down in the Senate. This piece of political theater is just another example of Liberals trying to turn the Orlando nightclub shooting, a clear act of radical Islamic terrorism, into something else. An excuse to attack the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.

Prepare for the Worst – Increases in Militias, Bunkers, and Preppers

The Washington Post published a lengthy article about a sharp increase in the number of ′Patriot′, militia groups. The latest offering of the Discovery Network, Vice TV, has done a show visiting the Michigan Militia. Other news articles of the few weeks describe increases in the sale of bunkers, doomsday prepper equipment, guns, ammunition, and survival foods. We are also seeing a spike in the sale of solar panels and small wind generators as more people head for the hills to live ′Off-the-Grid′. Popular TV series like ″The Walking Dead″, ″Fear The Walking Dead″, ″Containment″, all revolve around a common theme that in a serious emergency situation, the government may not only be unable to help you, but may act against your survival. Even TV shows like ″Tiny House Nation″ indicate a shift in the American attitude towards consumerism, accumulation and the concept of ′bigger-is-better′.

GOP – Chaos & Confusion?

Hail Eris! All Hail Discordia! The Grand Old Party seems to be bent on shattering itself. Reports of Republican Party consultants and major donors teaming up in a last-ditch effort to defeat Donald Trump are growing. Historically speaking, any GOP candidate who wins either Iowa or New Hampshire, then wins South Carolina, generally becomes the presidential nominee. Especially if said candidate has a good night on Super Tuesday! Well, billionaire businessman, Donald J Trump, has done all of that. More to the point, exit poll data from every single primary and caucus to date shows extreme dissatisfaction with GOP leaders by primary voters. In many states, the ′Angry′ and ′Dissatisfied′ numbers range above 90%! In most states, more than 50% of Republican voters feel BETRAYED by their party′s leadership! So who will win this battle within the GOP?

Tim Cook to FBI – No Unlocking Back Door for Apple iPhone

Apple CEO Tim Cook is rejecting the FBI and a federal court order to unlock an iPhone once owned by the San Bernandino terrorists. The reason Apple gives is that to do so would require the company to develop a method that could compromise every iPhone on the planet. That this is a matter of privacy versus government intrusion. Critics, including the Barack Obama White House and even Donald Trump, say that the needs of the nation outweigh such individual liberty. However, the FBI′s argument that there may still be some ′actionable intelligence′ on the iPhone after two months seems a bit of a stretch. On the other hand, would any info obtained by Apple themselves, then turned over to the feds, be admissible in a court of law. Even for securing additional search warrants? It may seem unlikely once the ′chain of possession′ of such evidence is changed so dramatically. Such an action would, in effect, turn Apple into a division of law enforcement.

Militia in Oregon Asked to Leave by Sheriff

Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward is asking the militia group in Oregon, Citizens for Constitutional Freedom, to leave. This past Saturday, the group seized the main office building at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, which is primarily a bird sanctuary. The militia group is led by Ammon and Ryan Bundy, sons of Clive Bundy, the Nevada rancher who was involved in a dispute with the federal government′s Bureau of Land Management, an agency of the Department of the Interior back in 2014. They claim that the seizure of the bird sanctuary in Oregon is in response to the resentencing of Dwight and Steven Hammond, a father and son team of ranchers. They were convicted of starting a brush fire which accidentally burned some 127 acres of federal land. The Hammonds, ages 73 and 46, were originally sentenced to serve three months in jail, but a federal judge claimed that this was well below federal sentencing guidelines. So both men were resentenced to serve one year and have turned themselves in.

Barack Obama Gun Control Executive Orders Expected

Barack Obama is expected to announce more gun control laws and restrictions through executive orders and actions this coming week. The White House confirms that Obama will meet with his Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, to go over the proposed restrictions shortly after the weekend. Obama may wait until going public with his plan until the State of the Union Address on January 12. Some of the proposed executive actions may include additional restrictions on obtaining approval during background checks, as well as expanding such checks on gun sales involving collectors and hobbyists. Currently, such sales are exempt by those who buy, sell or trade firearms as part of private collections. Naturally, the National Rifle Association, the NRA, and other pro-gun groups, are keeping a sharp eye on what Obama is planning.

FAA Drone Registration – Grinch Obama Levees Fees, Fines

Do not say I did not warn you, because I did! The Federal Aviation Administration announced yesterday that all users of drones and radio-controlled model aircraft, from the ages of 13 up, must comply with the new drone registration. Hobbyists who intend to operate such aircraft weighing 0.55 pounds to 55 pounds must register their toys at the FAA website starting on December 21 and no later than February 19. There is a $5 registration fee for each aircraft and failure to do so can result in fines from $27,000 to $250,000 and 3 years in prison. The certification you will receive for your $5 is only good for 3 years. With Christmas sales of some 400,000 to 700,000 drone and R/C aircraft expected this holiday season, along with all those already purchased, the Obama administration can anticipate quite the windfall of fresh cash.
