Red Flag Laws: Opposing Freedom

I just got off the telephone comment line to the Whitehouse to make sure my voice is heard about preserving the 2nd Amendment by opposing Red Flag Laws. I also sent an email to President Trump on the subject. (Tip: call the Switchboard, 202-456-1414, if the comment line is busy.

Aside from my personal experience in listening to the Gun Control debate for the last 40 years+, I thought it prudent to list some of my current reads and favorite video clips that have firmed my stance on why I am concerned over who’s watching the watchers, against additional background checks, and the importance of fighting off those who wish to control this issue through emotional rhetoric.

Today Front Page Magazine put out a fabulous article that clearly articulates the need for discussion:

FROM EL PASO TO FORT HOOD

When the FBI failed to prevent a mass murder they knew was coming.

Glenn Beck’s book CONTROL is the best when it comes to documentation on the issue, and then some. His company, BlazeTV.com has many hosts who have raised the warnings, and you should hear from their guests!

 

Dana Loesch is one of the best when it comes to articulating and fighting for the Second Amendment:

Why Red Flag Laws Are Not A Good Solution To Mass Shootings

Do you feel comfortable giving up a cornerstone of our republic for a safety dependent upon enforcement by a government that has failed at this before?

Great segment here with Simon Sinek: “It’s not about guns, it’s about kids being lonely…”

Here are two wonderful educational videos with the late and great Charlton Heston:

In a clarion call to action here is a reminder about the importance of making sure President Trump hears your voice in defense of the Second Amendment and opposition to Red Flag Laws:

The Podcasts by Glenn Beck

The 5 p.m. Eastern broadcast by Glenn Beck has been wonderfully uplifting lately. You can watch the shows on TheBlaze.com, or on YouTube or download The Glenn Beck Podcast from several podcast outlets for your listening pleasure.

The 4E Solution by Glenn Beck

Each interview is fascinating. I feel better educated, enlightened, empowered and inspired as Glenn interviews each of these amazing men and woman.

  1. Tim Ballard
  2. Robert Spencer
  3. Michael Rectenwald
  4. Cassie Jaye
  5. Gene McGuire
  6. Eric Bolling

As I listen and learn I am reminded of a quote by the late Neal A. Maxwell:

“How can you and I really expect to glide naively through life, as if to say, ‘Lord, give me experience, but not grief, not sorrow, not pain, not opposition, not betrayal, and certainly not to be forsaken. Keep from me, Lord, all those experiences which made Thee what Thou art! Then, let me come and dwell with Thee and fully share Thy joy!’ ”  — Neal A. Maxwell

There are solutions to every challenge. None of us are exempt from and truly we can learn through our trials and tribulations, or through those of others, that in our extremities we can come to know God.

He has a Plan for us.

Donate: Which Conservative Cause?

In today’s current political climate there is a revival of sorts going on in the Conservative movement. It reminds me of the Second Great Awakening, where churches popped up on every corner clamoring for members to be baptized in a particular congregation. So when a new friend asked me about my thoughts on where to participate and donate to help the conservative vision it seemed like posting here was a good place to start.
Often I give to the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) Candidates directly: https://www.senateconservatives.com/races  I know SCF vets those they endorse. If a candidate lies to them and votes contrary to conservative principles, they revoke support for that candidate. That is why I check to see who’s who and to support those candidates in particular. Jim DeMint started SCF. It is a consistently conservative organization. 
I have donated to David Horowitz’s Freedom Center because there are many great thinkers and writers on FrontPageMag.com, and David has so many irons in the fire to assault the lies of the left. My last big donation was for the archival quality volumes of The Black Book of the American Left. I have been a big fan of his since the 1990’s.
Currently I am donating to Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI) because it seems like Jim DeMint understands what needs to be done. I do so waiting to see what good he is bringing about. He is working to unite an army of activists in supporting honorable men and women. As CPI bears good fruit, I will be increasing that donation. 
As a Heritage Action Sentinel, my donations there began slowly and to be honest, my donation is embarrassingly minimal. 
By subscribing to Glenn Beck’s The Blaze and Mark Levin’s CRTV, I feel like my time and money is well spent being well educated about the things that matter most. I really believe in Glenn’s vision and am looking forward to increasing donations to his company, MercuryOne.org
 
A few years ago I decided to check myself from getting sucked into funding every good cause. There are many wonderful causes, groups, and sincere people doing marvelous things.  It was overwhelming. Therefore, I prayerfully made a conscious decision to reduce and simplify my life, and to know where to best donate.  In order to focus on what matters most to me, I choose to give more money to a few organizations. 
Hope these thoughts are helpful. 

Dirty Jobs: Honey-do loves them

One of the great things about Honey-do is he cannot stand to pay anyone for something he can do himself. And he really cannot stand to call anyone to do something if he has not gone at it to see if he can do it first. It has been a blessing and a curse over the years, so you can imagine how thrilled I am that today it was a blessing! It was a savings of $399  because Honey-do was able to fix the washer.

One thing that I truly appreciate about Honey-do is he is educated and skilled. He grew up with parents who lived by the adage, Fix it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. Over the years my Honey-do has saved us thousands of dollars because of his ability and desire to learn how to build and fix things.

That leads me to Mike Rowe and MikeRoweWorks.com (that now switches you over to profoundlydisconneted.com).

“The mikeroweWORKS Foundation started the Profoundly Disconnected® campaign to challenge the absurd belief that a four-year degree is the only path to success. The Skills Gap is here, and if we don’t close it, it’ll swallow us all. Which is a long way of saying, we could use your help… “

 

Rewatching the Mike Rowe conversation on The Best of Beck at TheBlaze.com really made me thankful for the gifts and talents of Honey-do, and for his love for the principle of work. 

Here is the link to the story about the Rowe/Beck conversation from October 23, 2013:

Returning The Favor

Star Parker and UrbanCURE

EVERY Sunday as I leave Church, I turn right, then left and straight ahead of me is an abortion clinic. And every Sunday it makes me feel sick to my stomach because it is located in one of the most troubled areas of town, Zone 11 in Montgomery, Alabama.

I am thankful for women like Star Parker who fight the good fight. It must take an amazing amount of courage to tell and retell the tragic story of a personal nature over and over again. 

Please. Support UrbanCure.org with a donation today.

Dana’s last day at The Blaze

Having missed the announcement Monday, it came as a surprise that Dana Loesch is not renewing her contract with The Blaze. It was wonderful to see Glenn Beck show up for her last few moments on her last show today, and witness their tender exchange.

How totally rockin’ it was to see her as Darth Vaderess: 

Watch: A fond farewell to Dana Loesch from all of us at The Blaze

What a great team of people Glenn has put together and how lovely to see him let people go, with joy – though bittersweet, so they can spread their wings. Today’s show was a testament to the tenderness of hearts and cameraderie at The Blaze

Best wishes, Dana! Look forward to your January revelation of plans for 2018. Until then, God Bless you and yours! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.
