Doors, Not Walls

Neil Cavuto almost hit it when he just said on FOX:
"Maybe the problem is just the word wall."

Right. The wall for keeping people out.
Let people in.

BUILD DOORS.
Wherever they're needed along the border.
(Terms of service agreement required for entry,
not all applicants will qualify.)

Lots of doors, in numerous spots.
This is where America lets people in.
Let them come. (Can't stop them.)
Line up like any public facility.

Mr. Trump, promise to build doors.
Build doors, not walls.
Post the rules in plain English.

Background Check Clamor Obscures Real Problem

The lamestream media told you:

Universal background checks are the real solution to gun deaths, or what we call gun violence, or what we call mass shootings, or what we call terrorism, or what we call mental-health problems.

Please forget that we used to call it five-day waiting periods, when it was known as the Brady bill. Back when it funded the FBI's sprawling campus that houses the NICS computers, allowing it to check out any American from a single location, for the background checks, that are now the golden fleece, and all waiting-period talk has been abandoned, because that was a worthless smokescreen, served its purpose with useful idiots, never amounted to anything or stopped anyone anyway. Selling guns to gang members and the rest, five days later, solved nothing. It was the computer, that's what mattered, and the statutory authority to use it.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Background check real issues, short form:

-- No mass murderers have been stopped, that's just the evidence. This is among the gun lobby's main points.

-- If the goal is to stop mass murders (the left says it is), this doesn't do that.

-- Related, 6,000 inner-city murders, the main criminal statistic, is unaffected after 20 years. The total lack of murder trials for that is also unaffected. So -- what's the point of background checks if the crimes are ignored.

-- The big issue: When hardened criminals are finally found, turned down trying to buy guns at retail, they are just sent away with their money. Is that what you support? (That's rarely even mentioned, no one supports that when they find out).

-- The background check ignores the problem of sociopathic children who want to mass murder their classmates -- the main reason people are clamoring for checks these days.

-- Most of the people stopped and denied their rights are guilty of nothing, the studies have found, they just lose their rights though bureaucracy.

-- The people turned down can't be convicted of anything.

-- The numbers of convictions (we're told the system weeds out criminals trying to buy guns -- very serious crime) is in two digits out of tens of thousands of denials and millions of checks. What is the system actually doing?

-- There is no reasonable way to get off the list.

-- There is not even a practical way to find out if you are on the list.

-- Muslim jihadis aren't perturbed in their quest by background checks.

-- Every gang member, mental case, would-be murderer and 100 million decent Americans who are already armed are, like, already armed, making the background check system superfluous for them to control crime.

-- The left-leaning response to that side of the problem (existing guns already owned) is, we'll get those guns too.

-- But think about that -- all this fuss is about new psychos who need their first gun. Didn't the media and the antis think this through?

-- The cost of the system, in billions (real numbers are not available for reasons unclear at press time) could be desperately applied to real crime-fighting needs, but is blocked by democrats who want the NICS system up.

-- The system collects the names of 12 million innocent Americans annually who buy guns, the real reason the system was built -- according to knowledgable insiders on both sides of the aisle.

-- In point of fact, background checks have been a huge success -- measured from the perspective of collecting gun owners' names.

-- A background check can be conducted without gathering everyone's name, but politicians and bureaucrats refuse to do that, because it's really the names they want -- they know the check doesn't accomplish much else. http://www.gunlaws.com/BIDSvNICS.htm

-- The studies of armed criminals show the checks don't stop them -- they simply use straw buyers who have no criminal record. Or get some of the 350 million guns already in private hands. Or some of the countless guns smuggled in with the same ease as fentanyl, coke, pot, heroin, sex slaves and everything else.

How much more do I have to put on this list before you, too, realize the background check is about collecting the names of the innocent, ignoring gangland murders, psychotic children, sociopaths or the jihad and misdirecting attention?

Remember, the FBI could easily circulate the names of the bad guys, like wanted posters, and gun dealers could check the list to stop retail sales to villains. Instead they require business people to send the names of all their customers to the FBI. Ask yourself why it is never explained like that (known as, "clearly").

Instead, it's the usual suspects: hoplophobes, leftist/socialist/statists, useful idiots, uninformed media, misinformed schoolkids, apparatchiks and more who want the government surveillance checks expanded. Will this help if they read it?

Bonus questions:

Can the sociopathology of democrat-controlled inner cities be addressed so the murder rate drops?

v How do we stop our children from becoming sociopathic monsters, and why is that happening all of a sudden?

Illegal immigration More Planned Than You Know

The lamestream media told you:

If anything undermines the "news" media's credibility, it's this issue -- illegal immigration.

I covered this when we had millions crossing the border with no controls. Remember the Minutemen? The public had to take up the cause it was so bad. I saw it with my own eyes, wrote about it:
https://www.gunlaws.com/Minuteman.htm

Photographed the whole thing:
https://www.gunlaws.com/border1.htm

The liars in the media (it hurts to say that but it's accurate) would have you believe a spontaneous group of a few hundred moms and their kids fled torture and murder to get to the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Even when they showed pictures of masses of military age men, they continued the phony story. Unlicensed reporters kept their jobs, received no penalties.

The thousands of ("asylum seekers" or "distressed families" or "working poor" or "displaced locals" or "immigrants" or "migrants") came on foot with no assistance and no plan. We were told.

No one reporter even examined the claims of massive murder and mayhem in the three central American nations. A quick check with travel agencies shows each one gets about 1,000,000 (one million) international tourists a year. Not exactly the definition of war torn shoot holes.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

A picture is worth a thousand words:


To seek asylum from terrible danger, take the shortest route to safety.



To make a political statement with agenda-driven ally backing,


take the longest route and lie about everything to a


co-opted immoral "news" media/political partnership


(and get the most sympathetic courts, anticipating your arrival).

Armed Citizens Quietly Protest

Pittsburgh Stages Armed Rally to Defy Abusive Government

The lamestream media told you:

Nothing on national news. Local news covered it heavily because there were... guns! OMG! but failed to explain the actual issues with any degree of depth or accuracy. The mayor and police officials got plenty of face time and expressed concerns and fear, at length. Reiterations of restrictive laws and bans received copious airtime, with regretful reminders that arms are not banned, but legislation for that was coming.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

With government officials attempting to enact laws that are strictly banned, Americans were in the streets protecting the blatant, unethical, attempted unconstitutional abuse perpetrated on the public by various officials, none of whom have been charged with anything yet, and remain in office. State law prohibited localities from enacting their own gun laws, but this hasn't controlled Pittsburgh "authorities" from attempting exactly that, reminiscent of how so-called "gun-control" laws fail to control criminals. It was only action by armed individuals, similar to how police control people who violate the law, began to maintain law and order.

The city got the message, apparently, and seems to be backing off its illegal power grab, which included infringement on people's property, the right to bear arms and reductions or eliminations of due process. A loss of due process is the subject of proposed criminal penalties for anyone attempting such violations of fundamental rights.

A simple web search will give you numerous posts of images, home videos, "news" media reports and more on the well attended Pittsburgh protest. Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org issued a statement in support of the rally:

JPFO Statement for the Pittsburgh Rally

CIVIL RIGHTS RALLY IN
PITTSBURGH IS THE HIGH ROAD

Misguided effort to disarm Jews
and the public is wrong

JPFO Statement for the Pittsburgh Rally

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership respects and supports the efforts of our colleagues and patriots in Pittsburgh for exercising their rights to assemble and freely speak in defense of the fundamental human and civil right to keep and bear arms.

It is disheartening that some of our countrymen -- elected and religious officials included -- have been misguided into falsely believing that by weakening, disarming or making innocent people vulnerable we will somehow stop crime or forestall the actions of sociopaths. Nothing could be further from the truth. Today’s assembly in Pittsburgh is determined to get this important message across:

So-called “gun control” doesn’t control guns and doesn’t stop crime! It is a code phrase for disarming the public, and is never the right choice for public policy. You can’t arm slaves and expect them to remain slaves, and similarly, you can’t disarm free citizens and expect them to remain free. Watch carefully who does the disarming. A freely armed public is why America is the great magnet that attracts desperately oppressed gunless people from across the globe.

Taking lawfully owned firearms and accessories from the people who own them is infringement. Infringement is banned by the U.S. Constitution. The people who attempt to infringe on our rights are modern day red coats, dressed in business attire, who must be resisted by all available means. Infringers earn and deserve prison sentences!

The mass-media community is complicit in promoting the distorted message that weakness is strength, or disarming the average woman or man is good -- the precise opposite of the truth. Their incessant front-page promotion of mass murderers by name and image encourages copycats. They know this, and use it to further their nefarious cause of civil disarmament. Protected by heavily armed minions of government, these sycophants of the system violate every principle of ethical journalism and argue for reducing the public under absolute despotism, the sure road to the loss of freedom, genocide and enslavement.

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership stands four square with our courageous allies in defense of liberty, property ownership and a heavily armed public, as the balance to power it was successfully designed to be by our intelligent, well educated and religiously inclined Founding Fathers!

Signed, The Management and Bd. of Directors of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership



“Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org is America’s most aggressive civil-rights organization, dedicated to destroying the notion of ‘gun control’ as any kind of credible public-policy position. So-called ‘gun control’ does not control guns and doesn’t control criminal behavior. What it does do is disarm the innocent, leaving them helpless in the face of criminals, tyrannical governments and genocide. History repeatedly proves this fact. Founded in 1989 by Aaron Zelman as a response to the Holocaust, JPFO speaks with the moral authority and tenacious commitment of survivors of persecution, and knows that surrendering your personal and family safety to government protection courts disaster. You don’t have to be Jewish to fight by our side, you just have to love liberty.”

THE WALL

The Self Defense Wall on Our Southern Border.

The media blames only one side for the delay in erecting The Wall.

Clearly both sides have dug in, right?
This is called journalism "ethics."

President Trump wants $5 billion to build it, knowing Pelosi and her team of democrats won't allow Congress to act. He gets to blame them, they get to blame him. Congress stalls.

When Hussein Obama wanted fifteen times as much -- $150 billion -- in cash -- to give away to muslim enemy leaders of Iran, he simply got it in cash (from somewhere, never disclosed as far as I'm aware) and flew it on palettes in unmarked planes at night to give to them.

That guy never even got charged with providing material support to a terrorist organization.

Riddle me this: Why can't we, in defense of ourselves, do the same?

Where are the reporters who should be asking those questions?


Nancy Pelosi lives behind A WALL.
It provides her with protection. Protection is a good thing.
She understands the purpose and value of a wall.




Barack Hussein Obama lives behind A WALL.
It provides him with protection. Protection is a good thing.
He understands the purpose and value of a wall.


 

Someone needs to tell president Trump to make this point.
The rich, elitist democrats fighting the protective wall for America
all have protective walls for themselves.
This borders on criminal malfeasance.

Americans will respond to this message, just like you did.

Communist China

If newscasts don't stop calling
COMMUNIST CHINA simply "China,"
the communists could beat us.

 

It may be the most important battle of America's life.
The battle for your mind, literally.
Our enemies could beat us without firing a shot.

You will not know you have lost until you are enslaved.
They are succeeding in turning us against ourselves.
It is subtle, and deadly.

National Public Radio is now advertising (they call it "news") that something called "China" is stealing our hi-tech for 5G technology. Look up 5G if you care, it's the future of everything, so far beyond your 4G cell phone that you already can't live without now.*

But China isn't stealing 5G. Communists who rule that brutal dictatorship with an iron fist, they are.

Because communist China is so far behind as a nation, they can only catch up by stealing technology from us. All the media focus on Russia (also a communistic-type dictatorship) helps hide what the communists in China are doing.

By manipulating language you are being brainwashed. "We will bury you" is happening before your eyes, with simple words that hide the truth and mislead you. It hurts to say this, but our own democrats, now largely socialists, are complicit. The so-called "news" media has sold out almost completely. Communist China has a 40-point plan to take us over, actively underway. What, you haven't heard about it?

Not long ago, the "news" spoke of the the Red Chinese, Communist China, the Chicoms, our MORTAL enemies. They were and still are among the greatest threats we face.

Nothing has changed, except for cover our own media is giving them. Brainwashing -- a tool they invented and viciously used during the Korean War -- is fully at work here, in its improved softer version. It has captured the media, the education establishment, a large chunk of Congress and too much of the public. Many of us can see it, too many cannot.

The "cultural revolution," which is never properly explored here, is an effort by the Chicoms to wipe out China's glorious artful and militaristic past history and replace it with the new communist distorted rewrite of history.

The exquisite musical theater Shen Yun is based on China's splendid 5,000-year cultural history, with music, costumes, dance, poetry, theatrics and love stories, the ones the Red Chinese want to obliterate and erase from history.

BANNED IN CHINA



Shen Yun plays worldwide to packed audiences. But not in communist China. In communist China it is banned. If the theater company (now five full traveling troupes) sets foot there, they will be arrested, and disappeared. Shen Yun was assembled and performs to preserve 5,000 years of cultural history of this formerly great land the current dictator-for-life wants destroyed. Calling that man "president" is a travesty, a violation of every ethical guideline journalism has.

Any American news outlet that goes along, or refuses to call this despotic tyrannical regime anything but communist China and a dictatorship, should lose its advertisers and audience. They are poisoning your mind and providing material support to an enemy of the United States.

Communist China's money --
featuring history's worst mass murderer:



Remember: communist China features the world's worst mass murderer on their currency (and buildings everywhere). This reminds the enslaved population of what awaits them if they act out of line. Nobody tries to emigrate to this "great land." Political prisoners, even parents who exceed the enforced baby limits, are murdered, concentration camped, or simply disappeared.

Our tech giants have agreed to operate there, under totalitarian limits. Shame on them. You think they're screwing with us here? Imagine what they collect and transmit to the overlords in commieland.

*Blazing speed gets talked about but it's not really here with 4G. It's 5G that's so fast it will link your "secured" home to the supermarket, your car, your workplace, run traffic control and autonomous cars, monitor your health and link it to hospitals, your doctors and your medical chart and insurers, control your entertainment centers and smart speaker (monitoring equipment), all your devices, trash collection, web everything... society is about to become one enmeshed totality under 5G. Cool or total control? Communist China wants to control it, right now we do. It's time to stop calling them "China." The Chicoms are back.

Mueller Report Finally Finds Collusion

Leaves both sides stunned

The lamestream media told you:

The Mueller investigation will resolve everything! He will get the dirt on Trump. It takes two years to find Russian collusion. So what if the investigation knows no bounds.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The blather about the Mueller investigation, from media people who obviously know virtually nothing about the actual report, but continue to espouse as if they do, defies even the lowest novels for scripts. Watch the panels, and comment as needed, "You don't know that," until you can't stand it any longer and change channels.

Congress continues its late-breaking farce by pretending to investigate the Hillary crimes in the last few weeks, yes weeks. The FOX station is complicit by pretending the rush to act means something. Where was the pressure while there was still time left on the clock? There wasn't any.

If Mueller's report is finally released and accurate, and all his work really digs up reality, do you think we might see these headlines:

"Mueller Report Uncovers
Russian Election Collusion --
With Bill and Hillary Clinton."

Unintended Consequence of Two Year Study Finds NO Trump Collusion
But Hundreds of Millions with Hillary, Bill, Clinton Foundation, Even Chelsea

Indictments Coming

Uranium One deal clearly felonious,
report says, possibly treasonous

Democrats stunned, Republicans surprised,
pundits confounded


Only if the report is honest, says one critic.

Prognostication: What Mueller decides to release, lamestream media will hail him as a hero, Trump will suffer slings and arrows, debate over the results will dominate news for a long while and never resolve. Money well spent, if you were on the receiving end. media will, as usual, talk about the cost, but not about the recipients.

Last chance to enact National Carry, HR 38

Legislators let it languish, could still act.

House passed it months ago, all that's needed is Senate vote and Trump signature.

Could be completed in a few hours!
Mitch McConnell simply has to decide to call the vote.

The lamestream media told you:

Not a peep. But:
The Hillary investigation is swinging into high gear.
Yeah, right, where was this report, or any report, for the past two years.
Now that the R's are losing control, FOX and a few others are all hot and bothered about the stalled and abandoned Hillary investigation. This is where the real Russian collusion was. The whole thing is so perverted and corrupt it should make you nauseated. In a few weeks investigations will be all democrat controlled, you can bet the Clintons will skate.

They better be cautious with all the investigations they're planning for Mr. Trump. If they dig, and turn up dirt on Hillary, they can't just bury it, that would be criminal. It's hard to imagine how they could dig into the 2016 election and not dig up dirt on their sullied princess. What a bind -- they find damaging evidence and then have to commit felonies by not revealing it! "Be careful what you wish for, you might get it."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

I've been writing and warning about this for two years --
the promised National Carry bill that is only bait.
We're at the end of the rope.
The feds stripped out the part of this bill (HR38) where they pour money into the NICS check.
That was passed separately, and really made it look like Carry was just a smokescreen.
National Carry has been left idle by the republican house, senate and president to die.
It passed the House.
All it needs is McConnell to hold the Senate vote.
Will he?


Forwarded message:
http://arbalestquarrel.com/attention-all-law-abiding-gun-owners-concealed-handgun-carry-reciprocity-is-in-jeopardy/

ATTENTION ALL LAW-ABIDING GUN OWNERS:
NATIONAL CONCEALED HANDGUN CARRY RECIPROCITY IS IN JEOPARDY.

Concealed handgun carry reciprocity is about to die. It is about to die through deliberate inaction or callous indifference of the U.S. Senate. But we have a small window of opportunity: 21 days left to achieve the goal that has eluded us for years. It seemed assured of being accomplished by the Republican controlled 115th Congress but, it wasn’t.

Congress still has time to act before the end of the year, but that does nothing to explain why Congress failed to get this done. It certainly had ample opportunity to do so.

WHAT HAPPENED? WHY DID A REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED CONGRESS FAIL TO FULFILL PRESIDENT TRUMP’S SIGNATURE CAMPAIGN PROMISE?

The House of Representatives and the Senate did introduce several national handgun carry reciprocity bills in the last two years. One such bill was 115 H.R. 38, titled, “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. The bill’s synopsis reads: “AN ACT to amend title 18, United States Code, to provide a means by which nonresidents of a State whose residents may carry concealed firearms may also do so in the State.”

The measure was voted on by the full House, and the Republican controlled House passed the bill, on December 6, 2017, by recorded roll call vote: 231 to 198. The vast majority of House Democrats voted against passage of the bill. Only 6 of 184 Democrats voted for passage of the bill. Contrariwise, the vast majority of House Republicans, 225, voted for passage of the bill; and 14 voted against passage.

One day later, on December 7, 2017, the bill was sent to and received by the Senate, where it was read twice, in accordance with Senate protocol, and referred to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary for action. And, then we heard—Nothing! Dead Silence!

The bill apparently fell into a deep, dark abyss.

Senator Mitch McConnell, who, as Senate Majority Leader, has ultimate authority for determining what bills are voted on by the full Senate, said and did nothing to get the Judiciary Committee to act so that the bill could be voted on by the full Senate.

Why didn’t the Judiciary Committee act on this? They certainly could have, but didn’t. And, why didn’t Senator Mitch McConnell urge the Judiciary Committee to action, so the full Senate would have had the opportunity to vote for passage of national concealed handgun carry legislation? We don’t know. He could have seen to this, but didn’t. Senate Republicans who can answer these questions, aren’t saying.

Much about this, we don’t know. It is deeply perplexing.

BUT, THIS MUCH WE DO KNOW—

Senator Mitch McConnell can get things done when he wants to. Senator Mitch McConnell was able to get Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmed as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. This wasn’t easy, given the strenuous pushback by Senate Democrats. And the Senator should be commended for his zealous, unflagging effort in that regard. He should be just as zealous in getting national concealed handgun legislation through the full Senate. He certainly could have done so. For some reason, he chose not to. Yet, he still has time to get this done before the 116th Congress begins its first term, on January 3, 2019, because, at that point, it would be futile. The House will seat a Democratic Party majority; and the Democratic Party leadership’s agenda will include the drafting of bills to restrict the right of the people to keep and bear arms, not to strengthen that basic, fundamental, natural, and unalienable right

The 2016 general election earned us President Donald Trump along with Republican majorities in both Houses of Congress. National Right-to-Carry was in our grasp. The timing couldn’t have been better. This is what law-abiding gun owners wanted, and NRA and other Pro-Second Amendment organizations campaigned vigorously for it. Our once-in-a-lifetime real hope for National Right-to-Carry is now slipping through our fingers.

The Senate had over a year to act on the bill, from late 2017, when it first received the bill from the House. But the Senate failed to act.

CAN’T THE SENATE SIMPLY PASS THE BILL NEXT YEAR AND SEND IT ON TO PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR HIS SIGNATURE IN 2019?

NO! IT CANNOT! All pending bills die.

“At the end of a two-year session, Congress adjourns ‘sine die’ or ‘without day’ and not reconvene until a new Congress starts some time the next January.

After that, the slate is wiped clean; there is no business pending. All of the ‘H.R.’ and ‘S.’ numbered titles that have been discussed and debated for the past two years will be archived.

When Congress reconvenes, the process starts all over again.”

When Congress reconvenes in 2019, House Republicans can reintroduce concealed handgun carry reciprocity but with a Democratic Party House of Representatives majority, the bill would never pass. So, whatever the Senate does in 2019, won’t matter because both Houses of Congress must pass a bill before a bill is sent to the President for his signature, at which point, a bill then becomes the Law of the Land, in accordance with Article 1, Section 7 of the U.S. Constitution.

TIME TO PASS CONCEALED HANDGUN CARRY RECIPROCITY IS OF THE ESSENCE!

There is no time to waste. The Senate is scheduled to adjourn on December 14, 2018. If the Senate fails to pass the bill by emergency roll call vote, we will have lost the only real opportunity to see concealed handgun carry reciprocity through to fruition.

And, keep in mind: the Senate’s failure to act on national handgun carry places extreme pressure on President Trump who made this issue one of the signature issues of his campaign for U.S. President. Failure to accomplish this goal can well lead to Trump’s defeat in the general U.S. Presidential election of 2020. We must place the Senate’s feet to the fire.” This is where you can help!

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

IMMEDIATELY CALL:

U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (Chairman of the Judiciary Committee): (202) 224-3744
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: (202) 224-2541
Your Senate Delegation: (202) 224-3121

TELL THEM THIS:

“The Senate must vote on the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 bill immediately. The bill passed the House on December 6, 2017, almost one year ago, and has since been stalled in the Senate Judiciary Committee. That is unacceptable! We have only a few precious weeks to get this matter completed. The Senate must pass this bill and send it immediately to the President for his signature. President Trump will sign the bill into law, fulfilling an important campaign promise. My continued support for you will depend on your vote to approve this bill.”

You should also contact NRA and President Trump, reminding them of their commitment to support national concealed handgun carry reciprocity. The contact numbers are as follows:

The White House: (202) 456-1111 or (202) 456-1414
National Rifle Association (NRA): (800) 672-3888

We must put pressure on those who can get this matter accomplished.

Making a few important phone calls will only take a few minutes of your time. It is quick and easy, and critically important to safeguard and strengthen our right to keep and bear arms.

What you do can make a difference and you will be proud to have taken an active part in protecting our natural, fundamental, unalienable, and sacred right to safeguard our lives and the lives of those closest to us, with the best means available: a firearm.

If you chose to do nothing, you will only have yourself to blame.

THIS IS OUR LAST REAL SHOT AT PASSAGE OF SIGNIFICANT PRO-SECOND AMENDMENT LEGISLATION!

DON’T HESITATE TO TAKE THE SHOT. YOU WILL REGRET IT BECAUSE IT MAY BE YOUR LAST!

658 Resolutions Ignored (including Guns)

Nancy Pelosi takes over, leads massive charge against rule of law

The lamestream media told you:

Virtually nothing, when this actually happened, last time (2007): "Democrats congratulated themselves on passage of their six top-priority bills in their self-imposed 100-hour sprint for the 110th Congress. Whether the bills will pass the Senate, or survive a veto from the president, who is not a member of their party but is not very bright, is unknown." (from Page Nine No. 24, Jan. 25, 2007.)

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The House introduced a mind-numbing 658 resolutions in the first 100 hours of congressional floor time, unreported by the "news" media.

All of the language appears to have been written before the session began, mostly by unelected teams of democratic operatives outside public view, presumably as part of the Democrats' promised ethics reforms.

For the six passed bills, the committee process, floor debate, floor markups, amendments, deletions, rules and procedural questions were avoided as part of new ethical policies. This eliminated from the process rank and file congressmen, including eager freshman legislators from both parties, none of whom were interviewed on how they feel about that.

Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the highly admired first woman Speaker of the House, has called the new approach, "open, fair and full debate," and "open, honest and ethical government." She was not questioned on the discrepancy by the unbiased media.

No reporting covered the 658 resolutions, which are intended to become laws, and covered for example a Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act, a Bring The Troops Home Act, a Coal to Liquid Fuel Promotion Act, and a NICS Improvement Act, H.R. 297, which affects national firearms background checks for the public. The reason for the "news" media blackout were unclear.

"The Child Gun Safety and Gun Access Prevention Act of 2007" H.R.256, has no details posted at this time. A toy gun ban, H.R. 428, involving the Consumer Products Safety Commission, has no details posted at this time.

The "Gun Show Loophole Closing Act of 2007," H.R. 96, is listed but no information is currently available. The previous and poorly named gun show loophole act, sponsored by Sen. John McCain, was designed to close down gun shows completely. That bill was thoroughly examined at gunlaws.com: http://www.gunlaws.com/GunShows/index.htm

[Note: Because the Gun Law Update and Page Nine lists overlap, you may have seen some of this info already.] Under the original draft, currently legal gun shows are outlawed without prior federal permission. Gun show promoters must agree to warrantless searches in order to operate, and may be arrested if private citizens talk at the show about gun sales they wish to complete away from the show. I did not make that up. The right to assemble peaceably at a gun show or even plan for one, carries stiff prison terms unless federal licenses are issued in advance.

Massive new bureaucracy is created because all shows and their exhibitors must be registered 30 days before the show, then again 72 hours before the show, and again five days after the show. That's in addition to registering anyone who walks in, plus "any other information" the Secretary of the Treasury decides, by regulation, is necessary on vendors, attendees, and the show itself.

Critics pointed out that none of this deals with the criminals, or background checks, and the rest of the bill just gets worse.

See the 658 bills your House of Representatives introduced and that the lamestream media failed to tell you about here: http://thomas.loc.gov/home/multicongress/multicongress.html, by clicking "110" and "All" and "House Bills Only."

The cost of the bills is unknown. The amount of tax increase included is unknown. The unpaid Uninvited Ombudsman cannot possibly spend the time to do that research, and invites readers to try. "News" outlets avoid that work because it is no longer their yob to inform the public. About 49,000 words of new law passed the House.

"News" reports did include the votes on the six bills that passed, like ball scores, but following standard procedure did not provide the bill numbers, which would allow the public to look up the bills themselves.

The Uninvited Ombudsman stumbled upon this, his own report, by accident, while looking for something else, otherwise he too would have missed it. Voting matters.
