Who is behind the Mike Lee attacks?

For the last two years I have seen attacks on Mike Lee continue to grow. Why is that? Who is behind those attacks? Why are alleged Conservatives fueling those attacks or perhaps the better question: Who are the trusted voices whispering in their ears?

What I know about Mike Lee is: ASK Mike Lee. Go to the ORIGINAL SOURCE, Mike Lee, just like Glenn Beck did:

If you have followed Mike Lee, you know he is more measured in thought than most. He is not one to speak without careful considerations. You know he is a Constitutionalist. You know his father, the late Rex Lee, taught him well. You know Mike has always been able to discuss his rational thoughts on that which he believes, promotes, and stands for.

If you do not know that then pull your head out of the sand, out of the sky, or out from wherever you are hiding it and go to the original source, Mike Lee and then seriously consider the trash talk about him. Ask yourself these questions when sophists bash Mike Lee:

  1. Am I being approached as a thinking citizen or as a frightened animal?
  2. How did the basher find out what they know?
  3. Is this a contrived story or twisted representation of what Mike actually said or believes?
  4. Do I really trust the hearsay or do I trust Mike’s Constitutional voting history more? 
  5. Is the yapper giving an accurate account of something or it is an attack on Mike Lee? 
  6. Can I verify the information by going to Mike Lee as my original source? 

(Hat Tip to Gary C. Lawrence, Political Campaigns and You, New Era, Sept. 1972)

So please. If you feel triggered by some report of what Mike Lee said or is trying to do, do your own research. Do not trust anyone who is trying to discredit an honorable man, doing the very best he can to be honest, true, and trustworthy of your good opinion.

BASELINE, ORIGINAL SOURCES:

Full Disclosure: I am a huge fan of Mike Lee. IF he ever goes rogue (spit), oh, I will talk about it.

#FrameTheDebate: Criminal & Crazy Control

A brilliant friend of mine, Joe Walker, took a 365 challenge to post a graphic every day. His work is fabulous and he is a fantastic man to boot. Following his 365 example I tried to write every day for a year on this blog. I did it, making a mess of my daily count (#mathimpaired) but I did indeed complete the challenge.

One piece I wrote included homage to Daniel Greenfield. I LOVE Daniel Greenfield. Truly. I love him for his brilliantly reasoned writing. The flow and tone in his articles move through my soul and very often settle my frenetic thoughts on a subject. In fact, I wish I had seen this before posting my thoughts on #RedFlagLaws for I certainly would have added it to the reading list:

WE NEED CRIMINAL AND CRAZY CONTROL, NOT GUN CONTROL

When criminals and psychos aren’t locked up, then everyone ends up in jail.

Gun controllers insist that the Founding Fathers never anticipated the problem of mass shooters. That’s probably true. But they would have also never tolerated the conditions that brought them into being, a permissive criminal justice system, a failure to institutionalize the mentally ill, and a media that promotes these acts of violence under the guise of condemning them and clamoring for gun control. 

This piece by Michelle Malkin is an excellent read in the demonizing of the Military whistleblowers. False allegations and labeling, or red-flagging those who oppose government bureaucrats who have a little authority as the bureaucrats suppose, is nothing new. Just ask anyone falsely accused of anything by a bureaucrat. This article is proof of how Red Flag Laws will work if instituted across America.

BEWARE THE GUN-GRABBING CRISIS VULTURES

How the VA 'red-flags' patriots.

Understanding abuse of power by bureaucrats makes it easy to fully appreciate this segment with Eric Brakey on the rationale of the Second Amendment.

Erick is right! “If the people are not allowed the means to self-defense then we are not citizens, we’re subjects.”

Taking guns away from law abiding gun owners is NOT the solution if it does not include due process. Under today’s Red Flag Laws Thomas Massie and John R. Lott, Jr. point out:

‘Red Flag’ Laws Are the Wrong Solution to Mass Shootings

“During the first nine months after Florida passed its red-flag law last year, judges granted more than 1,000 confiscation orders. In the three months after Maryland’s law went into effect on October 1, more than 300 people had their guns confiscated. In one case in Arundel County, a 61-year-old man died when the police stormed his home at 5 a.m. to take away his guns. Connecticut and Indiana, which have had these laws in effect for the longest time, have seen increasingly large numbers of confiscation orders.” 

 

If you do not know who Jonathan Dunne is, then please check out his website and podcasts. As Freedom’s Disciple, he truly understands how to #FrameTheDebate as he discusses the:

Roots of Gun Control & The Solutions

 

One of the greatest mass killings took place on 9/11 2001, and as Jonathan points out (around 20:22 minutes) it had nothing to do with guns. Neither did the Oklahoma Bombings. Dunne attributes these heinous acts to a “health, heart and head problem” that needs be solved.

The Social Elitists and their minions have been pushing for gun control for more than thirty years. Red Flag Laws are the most disturbing push for the subjective nature of accusations that can or might be leveled to usurp the unalienable right to keep and bear arms.

Criminals and Crazy people will always circumvent the law, the rules, the norms or a moral society. And almost always, it is the liars, deceivers, and power seekers demanding and influencing the crazies to take #Control by hurting people and taking their stuff.

So yeah. We definitely need Criminal and Crazy control.

#FreeThePeople with great conversations

I have been a fan of Matt Kibbe since he headed up FreedomWorks. In fact I was pleased to attend a fantastic FreedomWorks event in Florida where I got to shake his hand, get a photo, and signed copy of Hostile Takeover. (And I must mention the wonderful Deneen Borrelli from whom I got a signed copy of Blacklash and a photo.)

When FreedomWorks edged out Kibbe I was pretty irritated. He was able to work with Conservative-Libertarians and shake up the alleged conservative establishment to create a movement of the masses that helped reign in government power, only to have the proverbial rug yanked out from under his feet.

So now on to the great news portion of the story. Matt Kibbe moved forward by writing Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff, another fab book. He has developed his video/podcast program on the BlazeTV titled Kibbe On Liberty. He is a fantastic interviewer of very interesting people sharing ideas.

I hope you will be enticed to view a few of my favorite Kibbe video/podcasts below and follow his new political organization at FreeThePeople.org.

The NO vote I wanted to see!

For the last four days I have been checking Senator Mike Lee’s Senate page, Twitter feed, and Facebook page in anxious anticipation for his take, his decision on the Cruz amendment. Tonight he has put out his thoughts on the subject. Finally! Finally his statement is out and I can sleep in peace, come what may

Sen. Mike Lee to Vote No on Senate Health Bill

God Bless you, Senator Lee. You are very like George Washington in my book. It is all about Full Repeal and Open Debate Replace

Sincerely, with love and admiration, from this Sentinel to you, The Sentinel

SUPPORT MIKE LEE, generously, here: Contribute

Mike Lee for Senate Majority Leader

P.S. And a big shout out to Senator Jerry Moran for towing the line with Mike Lee!

Mike Lee for Senate Majority Leader

It is high time for Progressive Republican Leader (PRL) Mitch McCONnell to be voted out of his way-way-upness. He deserves to be stripped from his leadership position, just like Boehner. Basta!

Now on to promote Mike Lee for Senate Majority Leader. 

All you have to do is go to Mike’s YouTube channel and listen to him to begin to understand why he is a far better leader than the current PRL. 

TEN THINGS I LOVE ABOUT MIKE LEE

  1. Mike engages in The Laudable Pursuit.
  2. Mike knows how to #FrameADebate.
  3. Mike is willing to Push Back The Narrative.
  4. Mike Listens.
  5. Mike is grounded in Constitutional Principles
  6. Mike understands The Proper Role of Government.
  7. Mike fights for what is necessary and sufficient to bring truth to light
  8. Mike is a humble servant
  9. Mike is level-headed and sensible.
  10. Mike is genuine and grounded in the things that matter most.

Equal treatment of unequals

As the circular mayhem in the media and the progressive agenda is pushed forward, allegedly, by Mitch McConnell, listen to the eloquent David Azerrad and restore ordered and reasoned thought to your life so you can regroup with focus on things that matter most: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

  1. Challenge the subversion tactics brought on by claims of disparate impact based on wholly unwarranted suppositions. 
  2. Challenge those suppressing economic opportunies through artificial impediments in the name of equal outcomes. 
  3. Push back the narrative that only the federal government cares or must make all things equal for you and your family.

Hope you enjoyed the question and answer period. Azerrad is absolutely brilliant.

Update to Puh-lease, #FrameTheDebate for #FullRepeal

Dean Clancy is a favorite follow of mine. After I posted this last night, a list of articles that I am reading through on the MacArthur-Meadows amendmentI read Dean’s Twitter Timeline where he posted a link to Chris Jacobs’ article

And this morning on the Glenn Beck Radio Program, Mark Sandford of South Carolina gave a fabulous interview touching on a few subjects including the current not-a-Full Repeal situation. It just finished so as soon as it is available I will post it because it was truly an impressive interview.
