CALL Your congresscritter, the NRA, whoever, to keep the Gunwalker Scandal, the arming of murdering Mexican drug cartels by the BATFE-WITH OUR GUNS!  Guns they stole from innocent, law abiding, peaceable Americans-your Fellow Americans-over some stupid constitution-violating pretext. 


They really think they can get away with this in the face of the Gunwalker Scandal. Ask yourself why they are so confident. THE FIX IS IN.

Ka·bu·ki, noun.
A type of popular Japanese drama, evolved from the older No theater, in which elaborately costumed performers, nowadays men only, use stylized movements, dances, and songs in order to enact tragedies and comedies.

The NRA weeniemobilers are fixin' to give you the whole foot-long, firearm owners, right where the sun don't shine. Which is something they know quite a bit about.

"Obama Administration To Hold Gun Policy Meetings With Goal Of Policy Changes."

Read the article and then my comments at the other end.

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration has conducted informal discussions with groups from both ends of the gun-policy spectrum, including law enforcement and gun-rights organizations, and is set to hold formal meetings as early as this week in an effort to chart out a set of new firearms policies, administration officials say.

Spearheaded by the Department of Justice, the talks were described by one individual involved in the discussions as a “feeling-out process.” With more official meetings set to begin shortly, they provide the clearest indication to date that the White House is readying a response to the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and 19 others at Tucson in early January.

“As the president said, we should focus on sound, effective steps that will keep guns out of the hands of the criminals, fugitives, people with serious mental illness, and others who have no business possessing a gun and who are prohibited by laws on the books from owning a gun,” Justice Department spokesman Matthew Miller said. “We will be meeting with stakeholders on all sides of the issue to discuss how we can find sensible, intelligent ways to make the country safer.”

The goal is to finalize a set of policy changes, including, perhaps, legislation that could pass through a Congress hostile to abridgments of Second Amendment rights. The last serious bite at the apple occurred following the shootings at Virginia Tech in April 2007.

In a Sunday op-ed for the Arizona Daily Star, President Barack Obama called for a three-pronged approach: enforcing the laws already on the books, including the National Instant Criminal Background Check System; pushing for greater state-to-state coordination; and expediting background checks and the release of relevant data.

“It was a promising sign that the president understands that 86 percent of the public, including around 80 percent of gun owners, think that a simple background check for every purchase includes next to zero burden for law-abiding citizens and can save countless live,” said Mark Glaze, the executive director of the coalition of Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG).

The contours laid out in the op-ed are similar to the plan currently being pushed by MAIG and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). Schumer, who has also been in touch with DOJ officials, held a press conference with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg several weeks ago announcing plans to beef up the national background-check system, including eliminating a loophole that allows individuals to buy firearms at gun shows without submitting to a background check.

Though official talks have not yet begun, the Obama administration is expected to aim mostly at such low-hanging fruit, leaving issues like the legality of the high-capacity magazine -- which allows even pistols to fire more than 30 shots without reloading, and was used in the Tucson shootings in January -- to remain unaddressed for the time being. The principal debate, then, will likely center around the application of background-check standards to private dealers.

“They have been meeting with us and also with law enforcement groups and industry,” one gun-control advocate said of the administration. “This is what the White House does when they want to put a serious legislative apparatus together ... The game now becomes effectively demonstrating, in a way that is meaningful, what we know is the overwhelming support for universal background checks.”

"The principal debate, then, will likely center around the application of background-check standards to private dealers."

Get that? "Private dealers," as in individuals, as in YOU AND ME. They are grabbing at the "gun show loophole" again, which is to say you or I couldn't give an heirloom to our kids or grandkids without the government's permission IN ADVANCE. It is a grab to control THE ENTIRE PRIVATE SALE OF FIREARMS. Not even King George III was so grasping!

“We will be meeting with stakeholders on all sides of the issue to discuss how we can find sensible, intelligent ways to make the country safer.”

Translation: We're going to do a deal with the Lairds of Fairfax (the NRA) to sell out the "radicals" in order to comfort the Fudds.

Now things about the Project Gunwalker Scandal are starting to become clearer.

First, they intend to go ahead with the conspiracy to subvert the Second Amendment regardless of the headlines.

And why would they think that they can get away with that?

Because my friends, the fix is in. It is in with LaPierre, Cox and Company and it is, by extension, in with the GOP leadership.

Kabuki Theater.

Kabuki (歌舞伎, kabuki?) is classical Japanese dance-drama. Kabuki theatre is known for the stylization of its drama and for the elaborate make-up worn by some of its performers.

The individual kanji characters, from left to right, mean sing (歌), dance (舞), and skill (伎). Kabuki is therefore sometimes translated as "the art of singing and dancing." -- Wikipedia.

Let me tell you about some phone calls I've been getting lately. Some have been from people on, or close, to the NRA board. Some have been from citizens working the House committee members on the Issa and Smith committees, pressing for early hearings. Let me sum up what they say:

The GOP leadership is loathe to push the Project Gunwalker scandal hearings. Said one congresscritter to someone he thought was sympathetic, "We don't want to be enemies with the ATF." Issa and Smith are both said to be disinterested.

How could that be, you ask, when Smith just sent that demand letter to ATF? Remember he only did it because the NRA was calling for hearings. And why did the NRA call for hearings?

From two sources on or near the NRA board:

"The NRA is doing this just to say that they did. The same goes for Lamar Smith and Issa. After the CBS stories they had to do SOMETHING. LaPierre tried to stay out of it, but he felt the push from below by board members and regular membership, especially some of our law enforcement members."

"LaPierre and Cox had to be dragged kicking and screaming to issuing the demand for hearings, BUT THEY DON'T MEAN A DAMN BIT OF IT. It is all kabuki theater. Everybody knows how this is going to end if they have their way."

So, dear friends, once more the fix is in and the signatures at the bottom of the sellout document are the NRA's and the GOP's. It is all kabuki theater designed to make you think they are doing something when in fact the end of the play is already scripted and the people screwed at the ringing down of the curtain are American firearm owners.

This doesn't mean that it is a done deal. What it means is that we need more of that "push from below" that the Lairds of Fairfax are so afraid of.

"Nothing concentrates the mind so wonderfully as the prospect of being hung in the morning." -- Attributed to Ben Franklin.

Here's what ought to be demanded of the NRA: In order to "concentrate the minds" of Issa, Smith and Company, the NRA ought to make both Project Gunwalker investigative hearings and general ATF oversight hearings part of the grade for politicos they are so fond of waving in people's faces. Vote for hearings or get an "F". Do not pass go, do not collect 200 dollars. Tell them you don't believe what they say, you will only believe what they DO.

The NRA is having board elections shortly. The same pledge should be extracted from every mother's son and daughter who wants to be on the board.

This is doable. The fix may be in at the moment, but it can be "unfixed." Whether it is or not is entirely up to you.

But I guarantee you one thing. This entire citizen disarmament by a thousand slices crap will evaporate by the end of the first day of Project Gunwalker scandal hearings in the House.

These are the stakes, literally. More infringements on your God-given, natural and inalienable rights, or Gunwalker hearings that will put a stake in this Dracula plot's citizen disarmament heart.

So I suggest that if you don't want to be forced into becoming a federal criminal when you just want to will your grandkid a firearm without asking the government's permission -- if you don't want to have to shoot back at these tyrannical bastards with the passage of the next federal gun law that makes you a criminal -- that you motivate the sell-out NRA weenies and the do-nothing Stupid Party "leadership" NOW into doing what they claim to do, and being what they claim to be.

Otherwise, the fix is in. Obama knows it, or he wouldn't be pushing this now.

Your move, firearm owners of America.

Your move.
