PAGE NINE -- No. 66
by Alan Korwin, Author
Gun Laws of America

 

I've created a special feature for the print media and broadcasters ("Page Nine" regardless of where or when it runs), that covers stories afresh, not the way news rooms typically flavor things. It would help reduce the distrust so many news consumers feel and could be the most avidly followed item you carry -- if you carry it. It certainly is well received by my audience.

This casual sample might make you say, "We'll NEVER run that!" but Page Nine is being built around ad revenues from clear-thinking mainstream businesses.

NATIONAL TRAINING WEEK
July 4 to July 11, 2009!!
Shooting ranges are encouraged to offer special programs and classes -- plus free handgun rentals! -- to attract experienced and newcomer shooters for marksmanship and fun. Celebrate Independence Day with fireworks AND firearms -- ask your range to participate -- details of the widely endorsed event here: http://www.gunlaws.com/NationalTrainingWeek.htm

 

The organizers of The Second Amendment March on Washington (formerly named The Million Gun March) need volunteers to help organize Second Amendment Town Hall meetings in their communities as well as to help plan the simultaneous State Capitol Marches, all currently set for Spring 2010. Use this link if you're interested or want to know more: http://tinyurl.com/prf8j6. c/o Skip Coryell, Founder, Second Amendment March http://www.secondamendmentmarch.com. See his books: http://www.whitefeatherpress.com

 

Tempus Fugit fans -- regarding the sequel, novelist Rowe recently wrote: "I'm a laboring on it like one of Jefferson's slaves. Will be soon." The novel depicts three Founding Fathers mysteriously transported to the present, and their discovery of how we've shaped the nation. Thrilling. http://www.gunlaws.com/books7novels.htm

 

 

CORRECTIONS:

Do people in the Middle East really believe Obama is a Muslim? I couldn't provide the link last time, sorry, here it is -- "A lot of people in the Middle East actually do think that the president is Muslim." – Richard Engel, NBC News Chief Foreign Correspondent, speaking on the Bill Maher Show. Engel makes the statement at 7min., 55 sec. into the video at this link: http://tinyurl.com/pjxjar, or read it here on HBO's site: http://tinyurl.com/pztuvv

A reader writes: "I spent a month in the Middle East last summer (Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Syria) and became informed on this issue. Because my trip was before the election, I was interested to know what people in this part of the world thought about Obama and his background. I asked many people point blank "Is Obama muslim?" Universally, the answer was "His father was muslim, so therefore he is muslim".  This was true in every country we visited.  According to Koranic law, he is muslim. Thanks for all the hard work you do on your email newsletter." --Chris K.

1- Muslims Soliciting Obama

The lamestream media told you:

DATELINE--Chicago-- "Muslims seeking greater influence -- Effort puts resumes of top candidates in White House hands. by Noreen S. Ahmed-Ullah

"In a bid to get more Muslim Americans working in the Obama administration, a book with resumes of 45 of the nation's most qualified—Ivy League grads, Fortune 500 executives and public servants, all carefully vetted—has been submitted to the White House," reported the Chicago Tribune back on March 29. With help from Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the only elected Muslim in Congress, J. Saleh Williams of the Congressional Muslim Staffers Assn. sifted through 300 names and fast tracked the effort, "mostly under the radar," he said. http://tinyurl.com/ctwdmz

"We thought it would put [the president] in a precarious position. We didn't know how closely he wanted to appear to be working with the Muslim American community," Williams said. The Tribune notes that, "During the campaign, Obama's staff prevented Muslim women wearing head scarves from being photographed behind him, in one of many incidents that left Muslim Americans feeling slighted by the candidate. Now, Muslim Americans—who according to a recent study overwhelmingly backed Obama in the November election -- have been carefully watching the administration's every step."

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

No followup story has been released indicating how many Muslims successfully entered the Obama administration, how the 250 potential candidates who did not make the book feel, or what the Congressional Muslim Staffers Assn. has been working on recently. The White House acknowledged receiving the resumes.

NOTE: This story makes use of a news technique called "story placement" to connect possibly unconnected connections from the correction that precedes this carefully placed story, to illustrate how the media does its work. I'm telling it, you conclude.

2- National Parks... Again

The lamestream media told you:

The powerful gun lobby attached an amendment to the must-pass credit-card-reform act Mr. Obama had decided to enact without delay. This forced him to approve a gun law he would probably otherwise not, when he signed it into law on May 22.

The last-minute late-night passage of a rule change by the Bush Administration had lifted the long-standing ban on dangerous guns in National Parks, but that was thankfully blocked by a lawsuit arguing the rule change failed to conduct a necessary environmental-impact study. The new law makes the lawsuit moot, and allows people to carry deadly loaded weapons into National Parks and Wildlife Refuges, where people go for peaceful recreation and nature watching.

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Routine constitutional firearms carry in National Parks and Refuges remained uninfringed until the 1980s, when it was banned as a way to prevent hunters from hunting in forbidden zones. Because catching poachers was difficult, the much easier route of banning any possession was adopted through "regulations," by agencies incapable of enforcing their laws. No apparent authority to ban the Second Amendment in National Parks exists, but no arrests of the improper authorities have been made.

The ban was lifted by president Bush II, but only for people with government-issued carry permits, excluding 98% of the public. This was hailed as a great achievement, mainly by the 2% of people who were photographed, fingerprinted, entered in criminal databases, paid the tax, took the tests, went through the background screening, and got their expiration dates on state-issued ID papers (now made of plastic from foreign oil).

Bush's lifting of the ban (1/9/09) was rapidly overturned however (3/19/09), by a lawsuit with support from a compliant judge, arguing that concealed carry might have an impact on the environment. This conjecture, though preposterous on its face, was no less honored by the judge.

While the appeal worked its way through the courts (and rights remained denied), Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., introduced an amendment (Sec. 512) to an unrelated credit-card bill (HR 627), to restore the right to keep and bear arms for all law-abiding Americans in National Parks and Wildlife Refuges, not just government-permit holders. It passed 67-29 in the Senate, and 279-147 in the House.

The bill's "findings" section states, after summarizing the shenanigans denying peoples' rights, that "(7) Congress needs to weigh in on the new regulations to ensure that unelected bureaucrats and judges cannot again override the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens..." and that "(8) The Federal laws should make it clear that the second amendment rights of an individual at a unit of the National Park System or the National Wildlife Refuge System should not be infringed."

The bill, signed 5/22/09, takes effect in nine months (2/22/10), leaving the public rightless until then. That's assuming of course no further intervention is made by anti-rights forces who seek to ban the Second Amendment wherever possible. The new law simply states that anyone not banned from possessing a firearm can carry in the parks and refuges under the state laws where the facility is located.

In other news, the president and Congress, in enacting the RKBA reform, have set rules for the operation of the credit card industry, with no explicit constitutional authority to do so. No charges (criminal charges, not financial charges) have been made against them. A superficial review of some of the rules seems they have value, but just because something may have value doesn't mean Congress has delegated authority to act.

3- Drug Cartels Promoted

The lamestream media told you:

A purported top leader of Mexico's Sinaloa drug cartel was in police custody, as authorities extended a cross-border crackdown on the gang that has included the arrest of 755 of its members in the U.S., according to the Associated Press.

"This significantly affects the organization's ability to operate and distribute drugs," said Ricardo Cabrera, who runs the terrorism and drug-trafficking unit in Mexico's federal attorney general's office.

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

There was jubilation in border towns across Mexico, as a continuing wave of U.S-Mexican drug-policy arrests have provided new job and advancement opportunities for second tier workers and management in the lucrative international drug business. The industry is thriving despite the economic downturn, partially due to its historically low taxation.

"Some of these top leaders would stay in power forever, if not for the work of the federales and DEA," said one lieutenant, now a colonel in charge of customized smuggling vehicles, speaking through a translator on condition of anonymity. "The arrests provide upward mobility and opportunities for promotions we could not otherwise get against these bullies who run the cartels. Now it's our turn. Tell Mr. Cabrera, gracias."

In other news, drug prices and supplies remained stable on world markets, according to street reports. Calls for an end to the drug war, a cease fire or an armistice to reduce the war deaths, and dismantling the expensive ineffectual infrastructure for the war on some drugs fell on deaf ears, as usual. "Do you know how many government jobs would be lost if we ended this war?" asked one government worker who preferred to remain anonymous. Calls to the DEA for comment were not returned.

In other news, the mayors of ten Mexican towns were just rounded up as part of a drug-related corruption sting. http://tinyurl.com/p9dgy4 The mayors may have been part of a "silver or lead" scheme, where participants get rich on silver from the cartels, or have two pieces of lead forcibly inserted into their skulls. Seconds in command will take over until the next election cycle.

4- Hollywood Hypocrisy Hyped

The lamestream media told you:

The producers of Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire are hoping to change the lives of some real-life children living in the horrific Mumbai slums where the film was made. The filmmakers announced they would donate about $740,000 to create a wonderful five-year program aimed at providing healthcare and education for children.

"Having benefited so much from the hospitality of the people of Mumbai it is only right that some of the success of the movie be ploughed back into the city in areas where it is needed most and where it can make a real difference to some lives," director Danny Boyle said in People magazine.

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Using an olden investigative tool called a "calculator," we find that the 5,000 children in the benefit program will share about $148,000 per year, or 8¢ per day. It was not clear at press time if all that money would be ploughed into food, health care, education or all three, or how much food 8¢ buys in Mumbai. Marie Staunton, head of the outfit that will administer the fund said, "Education really is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty so we will focus the funds on getting children into school, keeping them there and ensuring they are healthy." Staunton's salary was not announced.

On May 15, the Philadelphia Inquirer noted the film grossed $326 million, making the generous donation just over two-tenths of a single percent. Most churches seek a full 10% from their parishioners' earnings, or 50 times more than the Hollywood moguls decided to plough into the horrific Mumbai slums that made them the hundreds of millions of dollars. Gross.

5- Criminal Smoker Glorified

The lamestream media told you:

Police in Lincoln, Nebraska, are seeking a man whole stole cigarettes while disguising himself with a beer carton over his head... Police say the bandit left with nine packs of cigarettes valued at nearly $50.

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

In further signs that the "news" media is deteriorating faster than expected, a theft by an apparent moron appeared recently in newspapers as far as 1,000 miles away from the site of the event. "That's just not news," said one observer. The theft of nine packs of cigarettes, valued by an unidentified police spokespersonmanwoman at less than $50, also showed the abusive nature of government which, through taxes and other manipulations, has raised the cost for a pack of smokes from about a quarter to nearly five bucks. Street values for other government-managed consumer drugs remains stable.

The story mentioned the carton mask was from Bud Light, prompting skeptics to wonder if Bud Light publicists actually pitched the piece to the highly gullible AP wire service. "You can't buy national exposure like that," said no one willing to be identified.

6- Pimping Your Ride

The lamestream media told you:

Among the valuable features in new consumer products, GPS units are now displaying tourist attractions, making travel much more enjoyable. With the new feature you won't miss sights, and can get from one to another efficiently.

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The sale of tourist attraction ads on GPS units created a stir today, as freedom advocates questioned whether cars programmed to favor advertised sites was an actual benefit. "It will advance the over-commercialization of our lives, direct people to government-approved tax-rich targets, reduce traffic to local wonders and countryside flavor, and help hide America's heartland or anything off the beaten path," according to one knowledgeable observer whose comments did not appear in any "news" reports. "It's bad enough that cars now come with TV screens so kids don't have to look out the windows," he said. "Programmed cars pose a creepy imposition on your freedom to travel."

Like TV sets, email, Facebook, Blackberries, iPhones and other forms of communication technology, most people find turning the tools off after they're installed difficult. Verrrry difficult.

7- Swallowing Industries Whole

The lamestream media told you:

Tom Krisher, writing for the AP reports: "Obama's Rules Will Make Small Efficient Cars the Norm"

"Higher mileage and emissions standards set by the Obama administration on Tuesday, which begin to take effect in 2012 and are to be achieved by 2016, will transform the American car and truck fleet. http://tinyurl.com/obrz3l

"Nearly everybody will drive smaller cars, and more of them will run on electricity."

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Tom Krisher of the Associated Press, writing with no independent thought apparent in his "report" of a government edict, effectively sanctified another government power grab over independent business in the United States. He carefully detailed the government proclamation, abandoning the skepticism that is critical to a reporter's code of ethics.

Missing is the fact that, with no apparent constitutional authority, the current president is dictating manufacturing standards to an entire industry. The media covered the government proclamation unchallenged.

The president cannot legitimately decree what sort of cars Americans can buy, but this has had little effect on the current administration or its complicit "news" media admirers. The media denies such claims.

"Smaller cars, lighter cars, cars with less impact resistance, this equates directly to more dead Americans, but the Obama administration could care less," says one observer who was not quoted by the press. Radio talk-show hosts have made the point repeatedly, though lamestream reports have failed to make the point at all.

"Green" advocates are reportedly thrilled at the news, effortlessly trading human lives for protection of something called "the environment," a fantastical representation of the place where all of us live, or die, in small, cheap, lightweight cars, designed to comply with the undocumented president's unconstitutional wishes.

Congress fell in line to support the president's edict and could not be reached for comment.

More cars will also be required to run on electricity, under the new government management plan. Surprisingly, the source of that much electricity was not discussed, even though the existing power grid runs near maximum, and browns out during periods of highest demand in winters and summers. It is estimated that cars need considerably more power than rooms with lightbulbs.

Internet-inventor Al Gore, speaking at a congressional hearing televised by C-SPAN, said electric cars could run on the equivalent of $1 per gallon gasoline. Gasoline, its cost, electrical equivalency, driving habits and various car designs are not directly related. Dollars per mile, which would provide a proper comparison, was not made or questioned.

No new power plants are planned. Mr. Obama has ruled out building the grid's mainstay coal-fired plants and neighborhoods are reluctant for any kind of plants in their neighborhoods. Some new windmill and sunshine electric generators are being installed however.

If the nation's fleet is significantly converted to electricity, and insufficient power exists to run the fleet, the only option would be to ration what's available. Fortunately, this can be achieved easily using "smart meters" currently being installed or retrofitted into homes nationwide. Smart meters can be turned on and off from a central location, controlling the amount of power a homeowner can consume. Constant real-time monitoring and threshold settings can automatically solve the problem of overconsumption. Homeowners would have freedom to choose between charging up their cars, cooking or turning on lights, for example.

An alternative to cutoffs would be steep price hikes to limit usage, applied as people exceed their mandated ration of electrons. These could be easily added to monthly bills, and electricity would continue to flow as long as the surcharges are paid promptly.

In other news, the world seems to have forgotten Mr. Obama's recent "green" ban on incandescent light bulbs. These have led the world out of abject darkness and had been universally praised previously, but will be eliminated in favor of screwy-shaped bulbs made solely in Communist China. The screwy bulbs, filled with lethal mercury gas, will be required by law in 2012, coincidentally the year Mr. Obama has declared for screwy lightweight less safe cars. A connection between the two acts was unclear at press time. The Communist Chinese politburo was reportedly pleased by the screwy lightbulb law. Hoarding of incandescent bulbs has not been reported.

The lethality of the poison gas in the bulbs has been questioned, since the amount is tiny, it dissipates rapidly upon breakage, and even if you snorted the entire bulb the amount would be too small to cause measurable harm. The government has released a complex technical report on how to dispose of the bulbs and conduct household evacuations if one should break. Compliance with the report is unknown but suspected to be low.

8- Sotomayor Gets Nod

The lamestream media told you:

The Washington Post reported on page one that Obama, while nearing his selection for a new Supreme Court nominee, was "conferring with a circle of advisers but is heavily involved in his own review as a lawyer who loves constitutional law."

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Whatever the Post meant with its aggrandizing editorial phrase, "a lawyer who loves constitutional law," the word "Constitution" did not appear in any of Mr. Obama's reported remarks while selecting a Supreme Court Justice to fill an open seat.

The president's quoted adjectives describing his preferences include: common touch, practical sense, empathy, feeling, stand in somebody else's shoes, see through their eyes, practical day-to-day living, practical matter, how regulations might effect the business in a practical way, intellectual firepower, and not just ivory tower learning. http://tinyurl.com/qfh9mb

After selecting the most left-leaning candidate on his short list, he added the candidate should have, "an understanding of how the world works," "How ordinary people live," should bring "experience tested by obstacles and barriers," as well as by "hardship and misfortune," and especially, "experience insisting, persisting, and ultimately overcoming those barriers." This amounts to "necessary ingredients in the kind of Justice we need."

Previously, Supreme Court nominations involved terms such as qualifications, history, track record, precedent, stare decisis, original intent, original meaning, originalism, scholarship, textual analysis, Founding Fathers, drafters, framers and rule of law.

"Love of constitutional law" also seems unlikely to describe Mr. Obama's legislative proposals, which include one bill after another with little if any apparent grounding in the Constitution. That document provides no authority, for example, to take over the practice of medicine, or for taking tax money from the public and giving it away to companies that are poorly run or on the verge of bankruptcy.

Deemed "bailouts" by the administration and their staunch allies in the press, these have turned out to be "buyouts," with the government exercising increasing socialist controls over entire sectors of the U.S. economy, hurting Americans everywhere, also unthinkable under the Constitution Mr. Obama reportedly loves.

Perhaps the truth is buried in a song lyric, "You only hurt the ones you love."

Enacted under a threat of financial doom, only 2.4% of the buyout money ($19B out of $787B) has actually been spent now three months after passage. This has caused some observers not in the press to question the dire warnings that forbade reading or understanding the bills' contents, effects or need before signing. "The world was going to collapse into chaos if we didn't immediately enact the buyout," one observer with a memory recalls. "Now, the president is just sitting on the biggest slush fund the world has even seen. When will he actually spend it, and on what? No one knows."

9- Obama Fried Chicken

The lamestream media told you:

Back in April, the NY Daily News (and many others) reported on a controversy that erupted when several NY city restaurants renamed themselves "Obama Fried Chicken." Mayor Bloomberg said they should find a more appropriate name. Others joined in denouncing the name, calling it racist and perpetuating a stereotype.

"Why name it that? Just because Obama is black, they're going to put his name on a fried chicken place in a black neighborhood?" said one upset neighbor. "Some critics found it distasteful that a business would try to make a profit from a historic election," according to the paper.

The staff and owners say it pays homage: "Basically, the owner loves Obama," said Mohammad Jabbar, 33, manager of the Brownsville store. "He loves him seriously. He supports him." http://tinyurl.com/dfr4vn The Harlem location reported brisk business, with one patron saying the name would be better, "If it was a fancy restaurant."

 

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

First, it is deplorable how so many Americans think it's their business to decide what you can say or name your property.

Second, the Democrats local celebration of Obama's 100th day in office, which I attended, featured several local politicians, attracted about 40 people, and served fried chicken wings and watermelon. I am not making this up. Biggest frickin chicken wings I have ever seen, like chickens from the lost lagoon, I could barely fit two on my plate.

Finally, the 100-day review sponsored by the Republicans, which I also attended, featured Hugh Hewitt, Michael Medved, Mike Gallagher, and attracted 1,500 people. No food was served.

Years back I started writing a book called "Stereotypes Are Real," but so many people gave me a hard time and mean looks when I described their stereotypes that I abandoned the project.

Apparently, my speech "The American Way" met with favor http://www.gunlaws.com/TheAmericanWay.htm.  I knew I was on to something when it first came out of me, and when I paced the lobby of a Victorian hotel in Prescott (the Vendome) practicing my delivery. Thank you all for the kind support and encouragement. (Don't miss the last one.)

 

Alan, Best speech I have ever had the pleasure to read. Thank you, Alan. I am moved. -Vernon P.

That was by far the best article I have ever seen you write, Alan! Thanks! I will be forwarding this onto all of my friends and I think I'm going to forward it onto my senators and congressmen as well. Well done! -Shawn M.

Alan: I am overwhelmed at your speech. Thanks for your efforts, they are appreciated by many. -Jack S.

Thank you for this essay.  It is excellent and I will be passing it along.  Keep up the good work for Liberty. Ed H.

That was a very impressive piece... well thought, well written and well received. I'd like to ask for permission to reprint it in one of my catalogs and websites giving credit to you as author. If so, I can get your message in front of 80,000 customers. I'll wait for your reply. Thank you. Lenny Magill.
[Permission gladly granted Lenny. I'm honored. Alan.]

This is super!! I will use it as a 'teaching tool.' You've captured it all. Any uninformed citizen can consider themselves on the way to being informed and capable of speaking up after reading this! Thanks. -Lynne R.

my god, alan, that is beyond brilliant.  it is right up there with mark levin's *liberty and tyranny*, and i consider levin to be perhaps the greatest servant of the american public since reagan. i will do my best to see that it's circulated. stay well, -bill p

Absolutely riveting, on target, in-depth and very readable. Excellent job! P.J. O.

Alan, I just wanted to commend you on your speech 'The American Way'. I found it to be inspiring and it said the things we right thinking Americans believe. I found it to be extremely well written. I have saved a copy in my 'good stuff' file. All the best to you and your family. Ben S.

Boy your article was a breath of fresh air. It was like finding water in the desert.  It's great to see a stable ship in the sea of madness that is swamping our country. -Greg W.

I agree with every word!!!  Very well thought out, written, and delivered. -Jerry F.

WOW! Great essay Alan. Thank you for putting in words the beliefs of so many patriots. I'll do my part to distribute this far and wide.   Good to see you at the NRA AM.    Matt C.

Wonderful, wonderful piece, Alan - as far as it goes.  It needed to end with a call for political action!  And, that action is not voting for the currently-perceived-as-major political parties!  You are espousing the correct, time-honored American principles!  Those parties are not! The Constitution Party is!  All it needs to be successful is an en masse movement of Conservatives to it, and the GOP will be replaced.  We the People know when to again believe proven liars.  NEVER! -Joseph Klein

Dear Mr. Korwin; This is one of the best articles I have seen in recent years! It is not only very timely, it is a blueprint  to follow for all men who still have the ability to think independently and the courage to act on their beliefs Thank you very much for what you do! --- I'm sending this to everyone I know on the internet and asking them to do the same. Arthur M.

What really really torques me is the increasing globalist attitude ("mindset" requires, like, ya know, a...mind!) that America needs to be like every other country. We didn't build the most inventive, productive, vibrant, FREEEST nation on Planet Earth by emulating ANYBODY. -Barrett T.

I agree with what you say but let's not forget that in order for America to become America we slaughtered, enslaved and imprisoned the original inhabitants.  We became a great nation over the dead bodies of ten of thousands of Native Americans.  Freedom for us came at a very high price for them. -Steve M.

I just read your speech, The American Way.  Holy Sh*t.  This is the best writing I've seen from you.  Wish I was there.  Very moving, and a true page turner.  I'm going to send it everywhere right now. -Dave H., a close and trusted friend

BRAVO!!! HAZZAH!!! As usual, you hit the nail on the head. Political correctness is a direct enemy of the first amendment... it is the duty of ALL people to defend the rights of others to express their opinions. -John T.

You're so full of sh*t and full of yourself.  Can you remove me from your mailing list, please? -Bob W.

Elsewhere:

I found Page Nine to be an amazing wealth of info that you have put together!!. I then found myself spending many hours reading and jumping around your website. Thanks for having so many good resources to choose from !! Mainly, the reason I joined your Gun Law updates list is because I want to be informed about current status of the laws and how we may be losing our rights as gun owners, thus losing our security. It is frightening what the new administration has in store for us and I want to be one of the many numbers of people who get counted as caring about keeping as many rights as possible. -Bonnie B.
