WOW! This was the best defense of the Second Amendment EVER! Manuel Martinez, who narrowly escaped Cuba in 1962 after being imprisoned for opposing Fidel Castro, passionately defended the Second Amendment in front of Oregon’s Senate Judiciary Committee.
Martinez passionately compared the state lawmakers’ attempts to pass gun control to his past in Marxist Cuba.
“You say you want to protect the people. You’re not going to protect nobody… A very powerful man tried to sell me this 50 years ago. I didn’t buy it… This is Marxism, plain and clear. Come on, tell me I’m wrong, I’ve been there when you were learning how to walk… A very powerful man put me in chains… You sell THIS to the people who do not have self respect, self-determination. And they are weak. And they love to be subjugated. And be dependent on the government. You don’t sell that to me sir. This is TREASON. This is an ASSAULT on the dream of the founding fathers. They didn’t die for THIS. I come here, for years, talking about what happened, while you people, sink to this.”

Before the 2012 election we re-posted: Can It All ‘Really’ Be Coincidence? But I think this is a good time to re-post, update and re-read this piece… with a few enhancements, while we still have the opportunity to fight back… (although before the final certification of the election might have been better) for the coincidences just keep coming and before his second inauguration, Obama and team are moving full speed ahead in implementing their goals… continued spending, demonizing their opponents using the Cloward and Piven method and Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, gun control, and ruling by executive orders, just for a starter. (Much of which was outlined in the President’s final press conference of his first term) Please take some time to read this, especially if you missed it the first time around, or at least scan the links and related articles below as well.

Can It All ‘Really’ Be Coincidence?
by Don Fredrick – the moral liberal
As I noted in the introduction to my book, The Obama Timeline: From his Birth in 1961 Through his First 100 Days in Office, a jury at a murder trial will often find the accumulated circumstantial evidence so overwhelming that a guilty verdict is obvious—even though there may be no witness to the crime. “The jurors in the Scott Peterson trial believed the collection of evidence more than they believed Scott Peterson. Among other things, the jury thought that being arrested with $15,000 in cash, recently-dyed hair, a newly-grown goatee, four cell phones, camping equipment, a map to a new girlfriend’s house, a gun, and his brother’s driver’s license certainly did not paint a picture of a grieving husband who had nothing to do with his pregnant wife’s disappearance and murder.”
A core component of Marxism is to destroy organized religion. So, Obama’s new attack on the Catholic Church should be no surprise. First, it was the unprecedented effort to destroy the church’s rights of religious conscience through a contraception benefit mandate. Now, Obama is abusing the power of the Executive Branch by using the banks to control the Catholic Church. Following up on his directive to put the Vatican on the Money Laundering List, Obama is, now, meting out his punishment.
Via The Blaze,
In between the establishment GOP elected elite and their fellow pundits, all in an uproar about Newt’s rise in the polls, and the Ron Paul supporters pouring on the steam pushing their guy… let’s have another type of fun, shall we? After all, these are the days when people like Palin and Cain are tried in the court of public opinion based on past confessions and accusations. It would be a pity to leave Obama out of our new age justice system.
Seems that an old story is rebounding via Selwyn Duke over at the New American today. An old Occidental College contemporary of Obama’s three decades ago – John Drew, himself a self-described Marxist at the time – says that Obama was an “ardent Marxist-Leninist” during his years there, and as of today, Drew doesn’t think he’s changed one iota.
