Say liberals are able to confiscate every firearm that is not in the hands of the government or criminals, will they finally be satisfied and leave us alone? Of course not. The reason they call their ideology “progressivism” is that it never stops progressing, since absolute tyranny can never quite be achieved. Next after guns will be sharp objects. Airstrip One is already there. The following is not from The Onion, but from the official website of Lancashire Constabulary:
Lancashire Constabulary has joined forces with the ground-breaking national anti-knife crime campaign ‘Save a Life, Surrender Your Knife’, as the force’s knife amnesty comes to an end.
Since the amnesty began at the end of August, more than 800 knives have been handed in across the county – including swords, machetes and commando knives.
Axes count too. Presumably so do steak knives, pocket knives, butter knives, and possibly nail clippers.
Lancashire officers have now given their backing to a national initiative designed to raise awareness of knife crime and encourage the surrender of dangerous weapons. …
Despite the amnesty ending [in October], police say people can continue to hand in any knife at any police station with a front counter as well being able to drop them into the designated bins.
What happens to you if you are caught with a sharp object after the amnesty ends for real? Best not to find out; irrational tyrannies are to be avoided at all costs, so steer clear of Britain, even if the USA ranks even lower in personal freedom now.
No doubt authorities will be astonished when rendering the law-abiding population still more vulnerable to the criminal elements imported on a massive scale from the Third World does not end crime. Their response will be another righteous campaign, possibly against blunt objects.
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.”

The assault on the Constitution and our Founding Principles has accelerated. Americans seem to be assailed by Marxist/Progressive propaganda at every turn. The most serious threat to our God-given rights currently, is the attack being mounted on the Second Amendment by the Progressive Left. They worked hard to manufacture a crisis with the Fast & Furious project which, to their disappointment, was exposed for the corrupt scandal it was before it could be leveraged to generate the outrage they hoped for. Their prayers for violence and horror, however, were answered. Using ginned up hysteria from convenient, current mass shootings and the slaughter of children – they never let a crisis go to waste. The Marxists see an opening to gut the Constitution and they are making their move. We dare not passively wait to be stripped of our rights.
The time for physical resistance has not yet arrived. Violence is always the very last resort. But neither has the time to just protect your own. Yes, we should take stock of our food, ammo, weapons and survival materials. Yes, we should brief our families and be more vigilant in protecting them. Yes, we should get to know our neighbors and form alliances. No, we should not just regroup and wait. That is a swift path to dictatorship. Pray for the best, plan for the worst. People should be doubling down on calling their politicians and letting them know that we are massively against these fascist moves towards banning and confiscating our guns. This is a battle we cannot — must not — lose, not if we wish to avoid civil conflict and bloodshed. This is it, boys and girls. We are fighting for all the marbles here. Throughout history, each time there is a genocide (or, “ethnic cleansing”), arms are regulated, registered and confiscated. Obama is threatening to go down that path and he relishes the thought.

FireAndreaMitchell.com The cesspool known as Chicago probably has the toughest gun laws in the country, yet despite all the shootings, murders, and bloodshed, you never hear a peep about this from the corrupt state run media. In Chicago, there have been 446 school age children shot in leftist utopia run by Rahm Emanuel and that produced Obama, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, etc. 62 school aged children have actually been killed by crazed nuts in Chicago so far this year with almost two weeks to go. So why isn’t this news worthy? Is it because it would embarrass those anti second amendment nuts who brag about Chicago’s tough gun laws? Is it because most of the kids who were shot and killed were minorities? Or is it because the corrupt media doesn’t want to show Chicago in a bad light?
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Damon Vix didn’t have to go to court to push Christmas out of the city of Santa Monica. He just joined the festivities.
The atheist’s anti-God message alongside a life-sized nativity display in a park overlooking the beach ignited a debate that burned brighter than any Christmas candle.

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius answered questions in Congress this week about the left framed ‘contraception compromise’ or the ‘first amendment un-compromise’ as framed by the right.
Sibelius essentially said that the decision has been made and this mandate along with many other surprises for those who did not follow the ObamaCare fight on in August 2013… PERIOD! The decision has been made and will go into affect regardless of the Constitution, religious freedom or what the American people want.
Remember what Nancy Pelosi said… “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in the bill!” Well, you are beginning to find out.
The rights of the American People and the U.S. Constitution have been under attack for a long time and the war on personal freedoms was dramatically increased after 9/11 with the passing of the Patriot Act in the name of security. And under the Obama administration the onslaught has continued at a frightening pace. Big brother is watching and monitoring us all from Onstar in your car, to everything you write and post on the Internet, to cameras on street corners and the box on your TV, to SmartMeters on your homes and the increased push for chips and biometric information in our bodies and on all our ID.

Yet through the planned process to grind America down including the dumbing down of America and purposeful distraction of the masses, the average American is suffering from either the Sheeple Shuffle or Ostrich Syndrome.
