True Common-Sense Gun-Safety Campaign Running Again

The lamestream media told you:

Nothing. Guns are bad. People killed each other.
Murderers are "gunmen" and here's their pictures.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Second Effort to Censor “Guns Save Lives” Abandoned!


400,000+ Views Per Week
Signs scheduled to run through 2016

It's a small voice against constant distortion about the truth of guns in America.

A positive message about firearms, and the lives private guns save, is making it out to the public on a daily basis on bus stops around Phoenix, Ariz.

A new effort to censor the message was defeated, on top of the First Amendment lawsuit that stopped city officials last time, when they tried to suppress the message when it first appeared in 2010.

In attempting to quash the new ads, which are similar to the previous ads, city lawyers claimed this promotional sales text for gun-safety training was objectionable and could not be used:

“Arizona leads the nation in good self-defense laws
and matching public classes, all year long, all over the state.”
Text the city sought to censor


The line is part of the small text surrounding
the heart, designed and intended to compel people
to sign up for classes at any time and in any place.

According to the leading firearms newsstand magazine, Guns and Ammo, Arizona has been rated #1 for the best gun laws in America for the third year in a row. Tense communications and the painful memories of four years of losing litigation last time convinced the city's censors to back off and let the ads run.

“News reports flood the public with stories of murder and mayhem caused by criminals,” said TrainMeAZ project manager Alan Korwin, who arranged to have the bus shelter ads posted on behalf of a broad industry coalition. “All we want to do is get the word out that guns are good, honorable and deserve respect, and so the public should get training and education, which is just true common sense.” Guns save lives, stop crime, protect people, and help keep America free, he says, reiterating what so many people already understand.

This is reflected in the facts, for example, America has more firearms per capita than any other nation, but is only 111th in per capita murders, according to Wikipedia (stats from the U.N.), a fact obscured by news reports.

“The 'Fourth Estate' is practically a 'Fifth Column' when it comes to defending the right to arms built into our Constitution,” said one mother of three, who refused to be identified, when asked at a local gun store. She was shopping for a .22-caliber junior rifle for her teenage son for Christmas.

Gun laws and legislation

See my piece on The Daily Caller:

The Left Can’t Pass Any “Common-Sense” Gun-Control Laws Because They Aren’t Proposing Any



Our super security specialists assure us on the "news"
Syrian refugees are vetted and they're all clean, good to go.

Does that include the 6,000 people sneaking into America,
unattended, across our southern border too? Don't they tip the ratio?

Border Patrol has told the "news" media that apprehensions are "Down"
hooray we're winning, and the papers have repeated that, no questions asked.
BP still agrees for every 6,000 captures 6,000 get through (1 for 1).
Critics say 12,000 get through (2 for 1). Cynics say it's higher. Quien sabe.

How does that stack up with the 100% success rate Jeh Johnson wants you to believe?
10,000 Syrians plus-or-minus 6,000 completely unknown, who don't count.

Front cover of (our Arizona "state" newspaper, aptly named), Nov. 28, 2015
"This is what a refugee looks like" (pretty picture of nice family at home is shown):

American Newspaper Reality



Only 2% are military aged men, we're told.

This is what refugees flooding into Europe from Syria really look like
(not in the newspaper, one of hundreds of images posted on the web):


Actual Reality

They have no papers, no records, no cares about you.

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses,
yearning for sharia law.

This is why no one trusts the "news" media any longer.

Thousands of People Pouring Across Southern Border

CORRECTION: 400,000 border crossers expected from Mexico this year, not 6,000 (Story #4, below), sorry, my mistake. Details and links by month, by sector, for past 15 years provided for accuracy. I feel badly for getting it wrong, a rare error, please accept my apologies.

But hooray, numbers have dropped

The lamestream media told you:

"Apprehension numbers are on the decline, in 2012 there were 6,500 apprehensions. In 2013, agents apprehended 6,106. And in 2014 the Border Patrol caught 5,902."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Lamestream pundits are quick to point out that so-called "net immigration" is neutral because so many immigrants are leaving the country. This seems to make them feel good somehow.

That truthy factoid doesn't matter, since we're guaranteed by the White House and security agencies that certain immigrants are completely vetted to eliminate any contagious, criminal, disturbed ones or jihadis. Apparently that guarantee doesn't include these 6,000 per year. In the height of the illegal immigration waves, when there were still many people south of our border, the Border Patrol admitted that for every illegal immigrant they caught, one got through. Observers on the border, put the figure higher than two for one or as many as four for one is spurts. Net immigration then exceeded two million per year.

So the real news is that on average more than 6,000 people each year are now flooding into America completely unattended, with no background checks or controls of any kind, and possibly as many as 18,000 or more. According to leading experts, 6,000 people is a lot, even if they were only in prison needing to be fed three times per day. The number leaving us doesn't matter from a potential threat standpoint.

Democrats Go All Out For Gun Bans

The lamestream media told you:

All five democrats at their first presidential debate came out in support of "commonsense gun-safety laws" like they have in Australia.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The lamestream media didn't tell you: Australia banned guns and demanded they be turned in to the government for destruction.

The gloves are off. We all knew this was the ultimate goal of democrats, but now there is no hiding it. The democrat audience cheered wildly when all five candidates came out in favor of this approach.

Democrats are still pushing for phony background checks that are part of a gun-registration scheme, which has nothing to do with crime control.

Daily Caller ran this column of mine showing how gun confiscations are the real goal of the liberal left and background checks are just the false flag --

Media Portrays Obama Illegal Act As "Setback"

The lamestream media told you:

Alan Gomez (USA Today) -- "With another devastating ruling by a federal appeals court, President Obama may be running out of options in his quest to remake the nation's immigration system before he leaves office.

"The president vowed to use his executive authority to protect undocumented immigrants and modernize the legal immigration system. That strategy was dealt a major blow Monday when the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down his program to protect up to 4.3 million undocumented immigrants from deportation."

Kevin McGill (AP) -- "Obama's plan to protect from deportation an estimated 5 million people living in the United States illegally suffered another setback Monday in a ruling from a New Orleans-based federal appeals court."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The man in White House has once again acted illegally, another court has confirmed today. The nation's "news" media covered up the scandal by portraying the violation as a "setback" and a "blow" in Mr. Obama's "quest."

According to the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, the executive branch completely lacks any legitimate authority to rewrite immigration law, a legislative function reserved to Congress by the U.S. Constitution, a fact which everyone with an education knows. Obama has been repeatedly trying to act where he has no authority to do so, an impeachable offense, if Congress were to decide to do something about it. Thus far, Congress has shown no spine in the matter.

By calling the decision a "devastating ruling," USA Today demonstrates total disdain for the rule of law, since the accused perpetrators broke into the nation unlawfully, an act that would have them imprisoned or expelled in almost any other nation on Earth.

According to the story, there are still "a few opportunities for Obama to cement his legacy." If that legacy includes gross violations of the Constitution, it will be like a pair of cement shoes.

U.S. Attorney General Can't Count, Media Can't Tell

The lamestream media told you:

New York (Larry Neumeister) AP -- "Two men held in Israel and one U.S. citizen believed to be living in Moscow have been charged with stealing the contact information of more than 100 million customers of U.S. financial institutions to generate hundreds of millions of dollars in illegal profits..."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

"In a release, U.S. attorney general Loretta E. Lynch said the defendants, 'perpetrated one of the largest thefts of financial-related data in history -- making off with the sensitive information of literally thousands of hard working Americans,'" according to the same AP story. Reporters didn't ask her about her numbers.

Someone needs to tell our attorney general that one hundred million (100,000,000) Americans is bigger than "thousands," but since the AP is asleep at the wheel, and the rest of her work is on par with her boss, Barack Hussein Obama, whose middle name is typically not used for obvious reasons, no one seriously expects anything better.

Since the security of computer data at massive banks, the federal government, the U.S. military, major department stores, internet giants and everyone else is constantly the subject of stories like this, you should consider computer data an open book literally lacking any meaningful controls, despite any rumors to the contrary.

Congress Interviews Hillary Regarding Benghazi

Hillary gets caught, lying, Americans get caught, dying

She had to endure 11 hours of interviews in Congress,
"news" media universally expresses sympathy for her.

Americans attacked in Benghazi had to endure eight hours
of armed jihadi assaults and arson with help that never arrived.
Because she never sent any.

The lamestream media told you:

Hillary Clinton had made it perfectly clear to America, right after the Benghazi attacks, that they were a spontaneous reaction, based on a protest, over an insulting video tape made by a muslim, about Islam. After all the bluster about the Benghazi attacks, and marathon congressional hearings:

"No Smoking Gun Found" --USA Today Front Cover Headline

"The House Benghazi committee produced little if any new information" --L.A. Times

"Little was gleaned from the 11 hours of testimony... providing little insight." --NBC News

This sampling of news reports is perfectly typical of the national reporting on the subject. Republican troublemakers and obstructionists, inside and out of Congress, never believed Hillary.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Revealed for the first time at the Benghazi hearings, America learned that Hillary Clinton had lied all along, because she wrote to the Egyptian prime minister on the night of September 11, 2012: "We know that the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack, not a protest." This is a direct quote from her email, revealed for the first time at the congressional hearing. She said essentially the same thing to the Libyan prime minister, and even her daughter, in emails revealed at the hearings.

Previously, she claimed for weeks it was all caused spontaneously by a protest and a hysterically funny amateurish video tape on the web.

Why is this important?

Six weeks before the presidential election of 2012, when the Benghazi attacks occurred, Obama was campaigning on what turned out to be total myths -- he was strong, he had destroyed al Qaida, Libya was pacified and safe, and the attack in Benghazi was the result of a video on the Internet that sparked a demonstration, for which we would find and prosecute the troublesome film maker.

Hillary Clinton knowingly promoted this baloney. It turns out these were flat out lies, and she knew it.

If it turned out al Qaida was getting stronger, we had not beaten them at all, Libya was not pacified and was on the verge of collapse, about to become an islamist jihadi stronghold, that the video story was a total lie, it was fabricated to coverup the ineptitude and weakness of Obama, that there was no demonstration, and Obama was weaker than we ever imagined and lying about it all -- he would never get elected.

Obama was a fraud, the story was a fraud, the election was based on a fraud. That's why it mattered. Black lies matter.

The Benghazi hearings revealed the truth -- Obama was hopelessly weak, defeated no one, Libya was a basket case, the Benghazi assault was proof, and Hillary Clinton lied about it all.

She knew since the night of the attacks -- her three emails were the smoking gun hidden for years. Indirect proof was everywhere. Now direct physical proof of the truth was out. She had sent the truth to the prime minister of Egypt, Libya, even her own daughter. Her lies to Congress are subjects of interest to the FBI, who is investigating her on other charges.

In cooperation with Obama, to preserve his chances for his re-election, she flat out lied four days later when the bodies of our murdered Americans were returned and said we will hunt down the video stooge, knowing he had nothing to do with it, to preserve the false story.

She and Obama sent out Susan Rice to lie, bald faced, on five Sunday news shows that a funny video (it was funny, I watched it, no way people with an IQ above their shoe size could be bothered) had instigated the attacks. It was Obama's inability to cope and the lies he had fabricated to cover his inept handling of the situation.

It was a disgrace. She was a disgrace, along with him and all their cronies. This all came out, for the world to see, in the long hearing. Why did it run long?

It ran long because she only agreed to appear once -- she ran Congress instead of the other way around. She holds no office. She is a "former" this and that. The fact that she is running for office is superfluous. More than 200 people have filed to run for president (you didn't know that, did you).

So the truth came out. She lied. She helped Obama get elected under false pretenses (again I might add). The "news" media is complicit in the deception. In the presence of a smoking gun, they declared, no smoking gun. And no one gets fired or brought up on charges. Reporters' permits don't get cancelled -- because they don't have any.

With all the smoking guns for her destruction of government property, lying and obstruction of justice with the top-secret emails, if the FBI does indict her, who will run on the democrat ticket? Unlike the Republicans, they have no bench. Just one woman under investigation for multiple felonies, one socialist, and a few nobodies no one has heard of, who are dropping out like flies (and crazy uncle Joe, who has left the game).

Republicans have 9 governors, 5 senators, 2 Hispanics, 2 doctors, 1 CEO, 1 black man, 1 business mogul, and 1 woman running. And they call us the ones lacking diversity. The people calling names are the names they call.


Held in Phoenix, Arizona this year, it attracted more than 700 people and the leaders of the gun-rights movement. C-SPAN recorded and broadcast the events from Sunday (check their website for details). More amazing stuff than I have time to review, apologies. If you Google the subject, there are videos, blogs and reviews posted widely. Wish I could do everything, but dang, it's impossible.

Gun Bias Degrades Presidential Debate (

The other Clinton -- the one who already was president -- said gun owners were responsible for overthrowing Congress, and putting it in Republican hands. So why could interrogators, er, interviewers, only manage one gun-related question, to only one candidate, during the presidential debate? And why ask him about his permit of all things? And why was he caught unprepared and put on the defensive?

America's 100 million gun owners (OK, maybe it's only 80 million) desperately want to know where Republicans stand on the right to keep and bear arms. Democrats revealed their positions -- they stand for gun bans -- like Australia.

The truth, and the bias, came out loud and clear at the 3rd Republican presidential debate. But had the guts to expose it in today's issue. No other major "news" outlet has even approached the issue. I put my heart and soul into it. Read it while you still can:
